Congressman Jeff Fortenberry
“Fortenberry”. Just sounds like an American name, doesn’t it?

But who is Jeff Fortenberry? He is none other than the United States congressman representing Nebraska’s first congressional district.

Suffering in Antigone
Nothing of magnitude comes into the life of mortals without suffering and disaster.” This deeply pessimistic statement by Charles Segal sums up the theme of tragedy in “Antigone”. This play is truly the example that “nothing comes into the life of mortals without suffering and disaster”; there are many significant events occurring, none of which stem from prosperity or success. All of the characters are affected by these tragic events, because agony, adversity, and distress are conditions of hu...

Juveniles committing violent crimes should be trie

This is because the person described is a criminal, one who has the mindset of committing a violent offense. No matter the age of the criminal, he or she would be nonetheless a rather unappealing companion. “Violent crime” is defined by...

The Man Who Brok 1000 Chains- Morality vs. Legalit
y When looking at as issue as right or wrong, it is imperative that the issue be categorized into either a matter of legality or morality. While some may be both, the simple fact that an action may be immoral does not qualify it as necessarily illegal. The film A Man That Broke A Thousand Chains, based on the true story of Robert Elliott Burns, showcases many examples of morality and legality. If an action is immoral, that means it defies one’s moral code and is commonly perceived as “wrong” bas...

Case of the Shipwrecked Sailors- Prosecution
In the “case of the shipwrecked sailors”, three men were marooned after the sinking of an oil tanker. Subject to extreme conditions and starvation, the men drew lots after about twenty five days and decided that the loser would be killed and eaten as food. When one of the men lost the draw, he pulled out his consent, and the other two men killed him anyway, eating him. Five days later, the remaining two men were rescued and ensuing actions incurred their murder charges. This seems to be a simpl...

Thematic Correlations between As I Lay Dying and t

Though this analysis is very far reaching and broad in topic, one interesting route of investigation is the novel’s connection to the Old Testament. One does not have to be a Christian to study the similarities in theme; there are very many occurrences of biblical subject matter and correlation, these having been studied by student and scholar alike.

Hitler’s foreign policy did had something to do with the outbreak the war, but the USA, Britain, France, the USSR, Japan and Italy also had to do with it. The main reason why there was a war was that Hitler and other countries started invading other countries and disobeying the Treaty of Versailles.

Analysis of Kubla Khan
In the poem Kubla Khan by Samuel Coleridge, language is used to convey images from Coleridge’s imagination. This is done with the use of vocabulary, imagery, structure, use of contrasts, rhythm and sound devices such as alliteration and assonance. By conveying his imagination by using language, the vocabulary used by Coleridge is of great importance. The five lines of the poem Kubla Khan sound like a chant or incantation, and help suggest mystery and supernatural themes of the poem. Another imp...

Imagine- John Lennon
imagine- John Lennon The song "Imagine" by John Lennon from the Beatles is certainly one of the songs that affected the youth in the 60\'s and the early 70\'s. It is clear that the song is trying to present a certain ideal about the world in the future- and ideal of peace, harmony and no wars. It is hard to argue with the song about the necessity of the things, but it is very easy to revoke the possibility that this ideal will come true. In this paragraph I would like to talk about the ideal its...

The answer is immediately, because it is not the government’s place to restrict the reproductive rights of any human being. However, this atrocity is taking place in China at this very moment. This law is known as the one-child law. This policy was introduced by Chairman Mao to help ensure that the flood prone, famine-ridden China could feed its people by red...

The Beatles were one of the top bands in the sixties with over two hundred songs recorded (Artist Facts: The Beatles). Many Beatles songs were said to have a hidden meaning, often thought to be referring to drugs like LSD, such as in the songs “Help” and “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”. A few other songs like “I Am a Walrus,” “I Call Your Name,” “If I Fell,” “I Am a Loser,” “I’m So Tired,” and many more, are said to have a second meaning as well (Cross).

Mr. Golding shows us that within each person there is a primitive evil that will break loose if it is not curbed by the strong order of civilization, that there is a monster lurking beneath the calm exterior of mundane, ordinary humans.

Also, the nobility disliked him because they were deprived of all their power and transplanted. Finally, he banned all books that advoca...
