Thought on Earth Thoughts on Earth: This world has no place for genius. Artistry, love, beauty, creativity is warped and mangled like raw steel into financial gain and social profiteering. What happened to the traveling gypsies, the gleemen and the circus? A generation of lost souls is found in this mess of suits and ties and pumps marching head on like lemmings over the cliff to an end that is all too predictable.

Two kids Response: After reading the story, Two kinds, by Amy Tan, what impresses me most is the way the mother educates her daughter. The mother wants the very best for her daughter without understanding what her daughter needs. I hate the mothers educational method, because it is impossible to bring out any genius in this way, rather it bottles up the innate talent of a child. In addition, I am also in sympathy with the daughter. Understanding: The story portrays a mother-daughter relationshi

Affirmative Action The real deal The Necessity for Affirmative Action: During the American Revolution Thomas Jefferson and America\'s founding fathers struggled for freedom and equality. Years of agonizing battling took place, and finally emancipation was gained and America was formed. As a society we have grown to believe that America equals equality, when in fact it does not. When the declaration of independence was created only white male colonists were created equally. Over 224 years have go
child labor in pakistan Child Labor in Pakistan Ryan Eagleton November 6, 1999 & John Hammer Child labor is a byproduct of the industrial revolution and was used mainly because Child Labor is a cheap labor force, and because of the child size they could get into places where adults could not.

teen curfews William Plemons III New curfew for teens It was a very tragic moment last week when two teens died in driving accidents. One of the events happened to a student of a fellow G.I.S.A school. Now the main focus is on the future of teen driving. It is a very serious issue, which needs very serious reform. Now the Georgia senate is considering narrowing driving curfews of teenagers. This new proposal calls for sixteen and seventeen year olds to be off the roads between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Women in the Workforce Western female thought through the centuries has identified the relationship between patriarchy and gender as crucial to the women’s subordinate position. For two hundred years, patriarchy precluded women from having a legal or political identity and the legislation and attitudes supporting this provided the model for slavery. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries suffrage campaigners succeeded in securing some legal and political rights for women in the UK. By the mid

asia A large economic downturn in East Asia threatens to end its nearly 30 year run of high growth rates. It is hard to understand what these declines will actualy do to the world market. The crisis has caused Asian currencies to fall 50-60%, stock markets to decline 40%, banks to close, and property values to drop. The crisis was brought on by currency devaluations, bad banking practices, high foreign debt, loose government regulation, and corruption. Due to East Asia\'s large impact on the wor
Brazil An Economy Recovering From Chaos Brazil earned the reputation of being a “miracle economy” in the late 1960s when double-digit annual growth rates were recorded and the structure of the economy underwent rapid change. Since 1981, however, Brazil’s economic performance has been poor in comparison to its potential. The country’s dramatic reduction in output growth, which averaged an annual GDP growth of only 1.5 percent over 1980-93, reflected its inability to respond to the events of the l

core democratic values I believe that the government should make higher education available to every young person that qualifies due to their study and good grades and are willing to repay their debt once their education is over. Some people would disagree, stating that it is not the governments responsibility to put people through college. They also may argue that the added eight billion dollars it would cost a year is too much. However, the people who received these benefits could pay back the

What may have been a major issue in the 1980 election might not even concern voters in 2000. Economic issues are continually changing with the times. Each election develops its own “personality.” Despite agreeing on some issues, the four major [now just two] candidates in the upcoming 2000 presidential election hold different opinions on three major economic i
economics2 First of all, the working class evolved in England. This happened mostly because England was the first to use machines for mass production. For instance, with new inventions like the Spinning Jenny machines in England, it caused a revolution to take place in England first. These machines reduced the values of the old tools, the property of the individual craftsmen and replaced the accomplishments and intellectual powers of the workers. As a result, workers hated the machines. The mach

Heavy Tax Have you paid your taxes yet? Why are taxes so crucial for a country? Because taxes are the main revenues of the government and just like a father has to work and get pay to support the family, taxes support the growing and the maintaining of the country. Being one of the essential incomes of a state, taxes certainly affect people¡¦s life. In fact, different rates of taxes cause different kinds of problems to the society. For example, excessive heavy rate of taxes might cause a country
Heilbroners Worldly Philosphers 1. People looking to trade in their old car for money off of their new car become discouraged with the low trade in value, and decide either not to buy a new car at all or to buy a cheaper model. The lower car sales is a reduction in demand, because the decrease in resale value of used cars is not changing the prices of the new cars, as a change in quantity demanded would suggest, it is changing what people are willing to pay for the cars.

Illegal Immigration and the Economy Illegal Immigration and the Economy Illegal immigration has become one of the key political issues of the 1990s, especially in border states such as California. The Bureau of the Census estimates that there are now 4 million illegal aliens living in the United States and that about 300,000 more settle permanently each year. Four million illegal immigrants is undeniably a large number of people, but it is far below the "invading army" of 8 million 10 million al

Israel has many main human rights. The Government usually respects the human rights of its citizens.

Taxes Taxes: Are They Needed? Through out the years, people have always complained that they have to pay too many taxes. But in reality, the government needs those taxes. I agree with Oliver Wendall Holmes when he said “ Taxes are what we pay for a civilized society”. It takes tax money to insure a safe and productive society. The taxes people pay are always used for the good of the public, most people don’t know what all is paid for by taxes. Taxes pay for everything from education to the pavem

Universality of Canadian Government Should the government of Canada continue to support the universality of social services by increasing the proportion of salaries given to income tax? This question hits a very touchy spot for all Canadians because some agree that a higher portion of an individual\'s salary should go to income tax, so a better standard of living could be made by all Canadians, instead of just to the financially blessed class of society.

I know I passed electronics. I also know that I know nothing about electronics. I really do not know geometry well, but I kno
