In the beginning, when matter was close together and the universe was dense, gravitational attraction was much stronger. Now that matter is far apart and the density of the universe is low, this mysterious energy is pushing space itself outward at an accelerating rate. The source of this mysterious force opposing gravity ...

ABOUT THE INTERACTION BETWEEN MOLECULES
ABOUT THE INTERACTION BETWEEN MOLECULES The properties observed for matter on the macroscopic level are determined by the properties of the constituent molecules and the interactions between them. The polar or non-polar character of a molecule will clearly be important in determining the nature of its interactions with other molecules. There will be relatively strong forces of attraction acting between molecules with large dipole moments. To a first approximation, the energy of interaction betwe...

At the time of British rule in Canada, there were a dramatically shorter number of Aboriginal p...

The Matrix
The Matrix In the movie The Matrix we may see many similarities between the society that is the Matrix and that of our own society. Though this movie is an extreme exaggeration of our situation it nonetheless lets us see how we endure these same problems of being plugged in every day and how we are fighting those who seem to have control over our lives. However, the question still remains, are we getting anywhere? And if so, is it safe for all of us to unplug at once? Could we handle it? In Th...

Reflection
Reflection ANTH 668100 23 Sept. 2004 Hannerzs piece shows more clearly how intricate globalization is.

All the interconnectedness and interrelationships are mingled all together, affecting each other in different degrees and scales, namely, in different tiers. Hennerz mentions the interesting controversial characteristic of academic imperi...

-THE ETHICS ON HUMAN CLONING-
-THE ETHICS ON HUMAN CLONING- Cloning is just one example of the great power of gene technology, a technology we urgently need to treat or cure diseases such as diabetes, cystic fibrosis, cancer or AIDS, and to help feed the growing world population. However gene technology raises urgent questions of safety and ethics. Human cloning means designer people with known pedigree. This is the ultimate pedigree child. Cloning of human embryos has already been achieved. Successful cloning of adults have...

Human Cloning is Wrong
Human Cloning is Wrong I bet many of you have seen Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Multiplicity, or many of the other movies that describe cloning. Most of what you see in these movies is false. What you don't know if that cloning could be dangerous, to the clone and to our society as a whole. It's unethical to have a human clone. What about identity? Humans are guaranteed the right to their own personality. What would happen if we overrode those rights by giving them someone else's genetic identity? ...

Discuss the issues of publishing pictures that have been altered using
Discuss the issues of publishing pictures that have been altered using a computer. Picture and subject manipulations have been a part of photography since it was first invented. But because of computer technology, digital manipulations are relatively easy to accomplish, hard to detect and perhaps more alarming, alter the original image so that checking the authenticity of the picture is impossible. Some critics have predicted that in a few years, images -- whether still or moving -- will not be ...

Technology
Technology It is a very busy world out there in which we live in. With so many different things to do and different paths to go on, it is often overwhelming to pick and choose what to experience. Technology brings more to our doorsteps then can be imagined and pop culture is changing every day. But we have choices, right? Horkheimer and Adorno charge that we in fact do not and the effects of the culture-driven industry are more damaging than we think. Through fragmentation, dependence on technol...

However, there are some people who believe that technology has the ability to eventually lead to destruction of soci...

By Derek Choi
by Derek Choi Shakespeare Tamed Shrews and Twelfth Nights: The Role of Women In Shakespeare It is curious to note the role of women in Shakespearean literature. Many critics have lambasted the female characters in his plays as two-dimensional and unrealistic portrayals of subservient women. Others have asserted that the roles of women in his plays were prominent for the time and culture that he lived in. That such contrasting views could be held in regards to the same topic is academic. It is on...

Ever do something stupid to impress someone Throughout a persons life

Yes, but we tend to limit ourselves to the very best works of a very few figures. When poetry is much more than what chosen artists portray. It is a challenge to look squarely and see beyond the obvious features of things. Sometimes real poetry is hidden beneath a rock, such as the work of Earl Simmons also known as D.M.X. Earl Sim...

The political decision made to deinstitutionalize chronic mental patients started with the appearance of phenothiazine medications. Dramaticall...

Marriage Asylum
Marriage Asylum It is my belief that the institution of marriage is a sham, designed by pious Christain fanatics in order to subjugate, control, and furthermore oppress a woman's personal liberties, intellectual freedoms and artistic development. It is also my belief that much in the way of the institution of marriage has not changed since its barbaric origin hundreds of years ago. In light of the enormous rate of divorce, marriage should be banned or at least have greater restrictions placed on...
