Capital Punishment
Capital Punishment After centuries of nearly universal implementation, the death penalty remains a deeply debated political issue. While one execution takes place, other murders occur, and the question still stands: Will the death penalty safeguard society and deter murder, or will it not? The death penalty cannot be considered a proper economical and moral means of punishment to deter those who might commit capital offenses, or can it? In the past, capital punishment horrified people, which det

The art of literature has long been used as a vehicle for entertaining
The art of literature has long been used as a vehicle for entertaining the masses. However, many stories have another purpose, such as expressing the writer's feelings on social customs from years gone bye or at the time of writing. One vehicle which is often used to attain this goal is satire. Mark Twain's novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, is an excellent example of using satire as social commentary(Reis 316). The novel is definitely a commentary on the ideals of King Arthur'

The rapid pace of technology and the advancement of scientific understanding in the past one hundred years are at the backbone for the distinctly twentieth century genre -- science fiction. Such rapid advancement in these fields of technology have opened up literally worlds of possibilities for the future. One hundred years ago the possibility of simply flying from city to city may have seemed nothing more than a distant futuristic dream to most. While a mere sixty years later the impossible wa

INTRODUCTION Human beings have always been fascinated by flight. Cave people carved, sculpted, and painted winged creatures soaring through the sky. Greek mythology tells of the winged horse Pegasus, ancient Persian myths tell of winged bulls that guarded the royal halls, and a 4000 year old Chinese story, from the Annals of The Bamboo Books, describes how the Emperor Shun escaped from captivity by donning the work-clothes of a bird. People struggled for centuries to make human flight a reali

From stick figures in the sand and the earliest animals painted and carved in stone, people worldwide have reacted to the world by making images. The fundamental goal of art, especially in the past, was to convey meaning and express important ideas, revealing what was significant to every society, by arresting images. In recognizing the subject matter of any painting, you have to look at the artist’s intentions, which are regularly connected to social conditions, national or global issues and t

Serial killers 2 Prior to discussing what serial killers do, we must identify and pinpoint what a serial killer is. We generally tend to attribute the same name for serial killers and mass murderers. This is incorrect because they are two independent and different types of killers. While both of these individuals may kill many people, the difference lies in the reason they kill and the period over which they kill their victims. An event or a build up of circumstance triggers mass murderers and c

People have tried to trace the origins of specific technologies and map out what cultures it affected, why and what impact the technology had on history.

I believe that obtaining the information to write a book about this subject is extremely hard and confusing, this is a personal

Even since a little lamb came forward saying that cloning of mammals is possible the world has been in a state of bewilderment. This means that if cloning a sheep is possible, how far away are humans? Is there a new generation of Dr. Frankensteins coming? I hope to answer this question, the process of cloning, the positive and negative aspects, ethical aspects, and an authors view of cloning all the way back from the 1940's. The basics however, are the first part. The process of cloning is invo

As the twentieth century comes to a close, the world can now look back on a century filled with war, technology, revolution, and growth. When looking back upon the most powerful leaders that shaped past century, it can’t be assumed that all of them had good intentions in mind. In fact, it is these leaders, the ones who set forth goals of destruction and massacre, that have affected the past hundred years the most drastically. The two men who fully represented this figure of dictatorship and ext

By 1918 Russia was a country going through a transition from the old ways of oppression and backward technology to the new ways of industrialisation and life under the Bolsheviks. After generations of hardship under Tsarist regime, the people had much to expect from the new management.

The Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905) soon followed in the Far East leading to the complete defeat of Russia.

The term globalisation means, the process to which countries intervene with others providing money for either goods or services.

However, if one is aware of the good that comes out

Hawthorne’s Style of Writing in The Scarlet Letter and “Young Goodman Brown” Nathaniel Hawthorne was an American novelist whose works were deeply concerned with the ethical problems of sin, punishment, and atonement and contributed greatly to the evolution of modern American literature. A New England native, Hawthorne was born in Salem, Massachusetts on July 4, 1804 and died on May 19, 1864 in New Hampshire.

Back in early 1900s, newspapers had entertainment, news, information, and public views which in turn earned the public’s interest. As interest grew, of course the companies did as well. At the turn of the century, the U.S. labor movement published hundreds of ne

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

Abstract The computer is considered one of the most technological advances of the twentieth century. As the general public becomes increasingly ‘computer literate,' the gap between technology and peoples' intellect notably shrinks.

Legal sanctions against abusive use of computers are a rea
