  1. Argument Analysis - In Hecho en Amrica, Jeanne Marie Laskas, a correspondent for GQ Magazine, recounts the season that she spent picking blueberries in Maine alongside the constant wanderers who put fruit on our table.

    To attempt to gain a better understanding of how immigrants in the United States live, Laskas spent a season in Maine with a group of immigrants, picking wild blueberries. The result? She seems more knowledgeable on the subject, therefore her intended audience, middle-class citizens, are more inclined to have confidence in her words. It makes her seem like she has the best interest of the people in mind. Laskas' experiences on the blueberry farm influence her opinion on immigration, which affects the entire article.

  3. Freud's Key theories on personality and human development

    Conscious thoughts are in full awareness, these feelings or thoughts are placed at the front. They can be easily read and tend to be logical, obeying the laws of reason. Pre-conscious thoughts are rather like recalled memories such as phone numbers or names. These memories have been placed in an easy access file, you have to search for a while, but you?ll eventually find them! Unconscious thoughts are thoughts and feelings that have been forgotten, pushed to the depths of the filing cabinet, some are ancient and dusty; others so painful they are folded up tight and placed in a top secret file!

    Business Economics and Finance is a course related to careers in business, management and economics.

  5. Muscle contraction

    Then the energized myosin head binds to the unblocked myosin-binding site on the actin molecule in cross-bridge formation. An inorganic phosphate is released from the myosin head, initiating the power stroke that allows the myosin head to rotates and bends as it pulls the thin filament toward the center of the sarcomere. As a result of the power stroke, ADP is released from the mysosin head. Then another ATP attaches to the myosin head, breaks down to ADP and inorganic phosphate, which provides enough energy for the myosin head to lift-off and end the cross bridge so that it'll be free to reattach to the next actin molecule.

  7. Socioeconomic factors and Obesity

    I was curious to find out what would have a more impact on obesity rates: having excess money or not having enough money. Another factor to consider while comparing high-income and low-income families in correlation with obesity rates is the cost of sports; "the opportunity to take part in sports programs is much more limited for parents with lower income, simply because the costs of these programs are often remarkably high" (Taylor, 1). Those individuals and/or families that receive lower income or are in poverty simply would not be able to afford for their children to be involved in extra-curricular activities.

  8. Plato V Aristotle The good Life

    Desire is the part of the soul which creates a hunger or want for things. Plato refers to the spirit as where your honour and self-respect lies. The reason or rational part of your soul judges what is good for the soul as a whole and is needed to make good decisions. Everyone has these three parts to their soul but it is those that are correctly proportioned that are truly virtuous. Plato goes on to state that for a person to be virtuous all desires must be extinguished and those desires must become longing for truth and goodness.

  10. Intro To Climatology

    The weather stations show relatively slow wind speeds across the British Isles with Hull having the strongest wind speed of 18 - 22 Knots. This is because of a higher pressure gradient force in this area shown by the isobars being closer together. North west and south west Ireland both have speeds of 13 - 17 Knots. The rest of England, Wales and Scotland have weak winds of only 8 - 12 Knots which is a typical trend of high pressure systems.

  11. Theme of Tranformation in The Colour Purple and The Yellow Wallpaper

    Celie's transition from adolescence to adulthood the character associates biblical God with the men she knows. The trauma of the abuse endured by Celie causes further heartache as a grown woman. As such the oppressive view of men is developed in particular with the father figure in the novel. Celie begins to wonder if her father murdered her daughter who mysteriously vanished, beginning to associate God the Father with the murderer of her child. Celie replies 'God took it' (page 4) when her mother questions the whereabouts of the child.

  12. Frost at Midnight

    The narrative of the poem begins with the speaker sitting in his cottage with the sleeping child beside him. The reference to the 'Frost and its secret ministry' may be subtle but is a powerful force of nature. Along with the personification of the capital F in 'Frost' an ominous mood is created which is only enhanced by the 'owlets cry'. The stanza continues describing the nights calmness, 'so calm that that it disturbs and vexes with its strange and extreme silentness', the consonance 's' sounds through out these lines is effective as its brings the quietness of the night to the forefront of the poem, a scene of tranquillity.

    While a formal education took place, nature provided a symbolic education, 'Foster'd alike by beauty and by fear' (l.307), and as such adopting the role of a substitute parent, therefore nurturing the speaker as a child. The speaker narrates how he would 'wander half the night' (l.315), setting traps and becoming a 'fell destroyer' (l.319). The metaphor symbolises the first stems of guilt the speaker experiences. The tone of the poem becomes more urgent with the speakers repetition of 'hurrying', (l.320-321), as the progresses at a quicker reflecting the urgency of the speaker.

This theory contrast greatly to many other theories were other theories suggest sleep and dreaming is the stabilize physical issues, or to help the brain manage information collected during the day Freud suggests that our unwanted desires stick with us from childhood and effectively haunt us in our sleep.

  16. Psycho Analysis Vs Cognitive

    These urges being sexual (Eros), anger (Thanatos), the emotions we are taught to control. Freud applied the metaphor of the mind or psyche being similar to an iceberg. Being that only a small portion of it is visible; the rest of it is invisible. When applied to the mind he said that only 10% of it was visible which is represented by our conscious, but 90% is invisible, but not necessarily inaccessible, which are what dreams represent. This iceberg metaphor is further broken down into what is accessible to us. The part visible to us is the Conscious and is what is availible to us.

  19. Ritalin is the only effective treatment for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

    The article goes on the say that drug treatments for ADHD can even cause brain damage and death! In regards to this topic, Dr Kendal from the Royal college of Psychiatrists concluded that doctors do not have enough support when it comes to using new methods to treat ADHD and therefore prescribe Ritalin too freely without trying or suggesting new treatments as an alternative (Cleland, G 12/11/07). Another recent Telegraph publication has proposed that the families with children who suffer from ADHD should be offered training courses to help them manage the behaviours of the child in question.

  20. Are psychological therapies equally effective in treating mood disorders than drug treatment?

    Drug treatments for mood disorders aim to alter the brain chemistry which appears to be different between suffers and non-suffers. Although pharmaceuticals appear to have a positive effect on some people, they can potentially increase sufferers' symptoms and produce some negative side affects. Teicher et al (1990) suggested that specific pharmaceuticals, especially selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), can cause an increase in suicidal tendencies among depressed patients when compared to patients being administered placebos and psychological therapies. In dispute of this idea, Khan et al (2003)

  22. The Picture of Dorian Gray Sketch

    Lord Henry immediately starts exerting his infectious influence on Dorian Gray. Dorian is astonished at how beautiful he looks in the portrait, but instantly starts to panic with his newfound Lord Henry outlook: "'Lord Henry Wotton is perfectly right. Youth is the only thing worth having. When I find that I am growing old, I shall kill myself'" (26). After meeting Henry, Dorian sees the portrait as a mockery and immediately wishes for it to age and decay in his stead. This incident marks the beginning of Dorian Gray's downward spiral into corruption and malice.

  23. Euthanasia Debate

    Although Euthanasia is legal in Belgium, Thailand, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Switzerland and the U.S. states Washington and Oregon, the majority of the world has ruled it to be illegal. The brief list of countries authorizing euthanasia evidently indicates that the majority of the world governments concur that it shouldn't be legal. There are very justifiable and powerful reasons for why they think so. The Hippocratic Oath is a vow that every aspiring doctor is obliged to make, and practicing euthanasia would be opposing it. The oath plainly states "I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for, nor will make a suggestion to this effect" which euthanasia clearly violates.

On days where no field trips were planned, the campers would spend a day at Addison Pool.

  25. How is hollywood fighting the war

    In Hollywood, it took on the same theme and the government in America and in 1940 created the Office of the Coordinator of Government Films and then in 1942 created Office of War Information which took on the role of the OCGF and press information. Its domestic arm, the Bureau of Motion Pictures, was a connection between the government and Hollywood. Through an often difficult process of negotiation between Hollywood and the government, the standards meant to be incorporated into the war film, abstract values such as bravery, unselfishness, and the bringing together of the nation against the enemy, were added to the standards that Hollywood had promoted.
