Homelessness Causes

Homelessness Causes

People that are homeless face obstacles out on the street everyday, but two of the worst obstacles for them to over come is the search for food and shelter. These two things are essential to survival. These are also things that people take for granted everyday. Have you ever watched someone sleeping on a bench or digging through a trash can for food and said, ?I would never do that? What you don?t realize is that the person you are watching has no choice but to dig for food or sleep on a bench. There aren?t enough resources here in Spokane to support the cities homeless population.
Homeless people are forced to beg, panhandle, and steal in order to eat, and survive. Sure there are some places for them to go get food, but there is not nearly enough. The homeless need three meals a day seven days a week just like anyone else. Brown bags of food are distributed only on scheduled days at designated food pantries by community based organizations (Peeler). This is the reason you see people desperately digging through garbage cans for food, because they have no where else to find

Schindlers List Review

Schindlers List Review

Schindler`s List
They believe in the Torah. They are waiting for the Savior to come. They honor
the Sabbath. They are Jews and they were persecuted.
Schindler?s List is a brilliant movie about a horrid time in history. This movie was
about the Holocaust, a period in history where Jews were persecuted by the Germans. It
was also about Oscar Schindler, a wealthy man who manufactured war supplies. Schindler
was a Jewish man himself, however, the Germans did not execute. They did not execute
him because he supplied the war weapons that the Nazis would use to exterminate the
Jews, whom they felt were worthless. In fact, Schindler was popular among the German
soldiers because he made them think that he was against the Jewish people.
That, however, could not be further from the truth. Schindler aided the Jews in
many ways. To have your name on the list that Schindler compiled, meant that you left the
concentration camps and went to work in the factories where you were treated properly.
Once at the factories, you made defective war supplies. For example, one would make a
gun where the trigger would not work, therefor when a Nazi went to kill someone with
their gun it would not be able to fire bullets.

Absinthe Problem In Itself, Or Is It Alcohol In General Th

Absinthe: Problem In Itself, Or Is It Alcohol In General That Is The Problem

One main theme I have learned in studying history is that there have been many ?panics? in communities large and small regarding certain events concerning social order. One of the first of these panics involving alcohol and its social vices began around 1700 and ended approximately 4 decades later. Whenever a new type of beverage entered Europe and became popular it was only time until certain classes would be associated with these drinks. Seeing as there have always been social divisions between classes there have also existed a hierarchy in alcohol and its social consumptions. In the case of the Gin Panic it was viewed, by the higher classes, as ruining the social structure of their communities. Eventually, the social panic becomes a political problem and the governments have to step in and either regulates the production, distribution and/or consumption of the drink in question, or if in seeing a need, a total prohibition of the product is established. In beginning of the second decade in the twentieth century, a very popular drink suffered that same fate, after a few decades of debate, Absinthe was made illegal, and banned in most of the western world.

FREEDOM

FREEDOM

freedom! In today?s society freedom is something that supposedly exists, but does it really exist. In recent years it seems like freedom is being limited more and more by the government of the United States. Although we have more freedom than most countries, we are still not totally free like we think. Freedom is something that was won a long time ago, but today it is slowly being taken away. Freedom is a word that is thrown around lightly, and many people have forgotten what it really is. Freedom is the quality of not being coerced or constrained by fate, necessity, or circumstances in ones choices or actions. This means that under no circumstances can someone tell you that you have to do something or that you can not buy something or that you can not watch your favorite TV show. Since the beginning of our country?s independence people have been fighting to be what we call free. Probably none has been a bigger fight the African Americans struggle to be free of slavery. The fight of the slaves to be free was a long battle. It was thought that the slaves were inferior to Whites in intelligence. The funny

Seinfeld

Seinfeld

TV/Radio Final Paper ? Seinfeld

The television series Seinfeld was one of the most influential, highest grossing, and beloved shows in history. It was a show that people would set their lives to, make sure that they were home on Thursday nights at 9pm, with the TV tuned in to NBC. The term ?watercooler conversation? was coined to Seinfeld, because people would always discuss the previous night?s episode that day with their co-workers. The four cast members, (Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards, and Julia Louis ? Dreyfus), have basically been unanimusly inducted into the viewers? TV hall of fame.
It all began in 1989, when some NBC executives had attended a stand up routine by Jerry and commishioned him for a sitcom pilot. They received a tape about the day ? to ? day life of jerry Seinfeld and his two best friends, George Costanza and Cosmo Kramer. The show?s one basis was ?nothing?. It was about nothing.

A Nation Of Greatness Falls To Ruins

A Nation Of Greatness Falls To Ruins

A Nation of Greatness Falls to Ruins

The Roman Empire is a civilization that can never be forgotten. It can be attributed for giving the modern world the building blocks that make up many of our present societies. It gave the world a basis for many of the world?s modern languages and literature. The Roman Empire also made great strides in the great fields of agriculture, art, government, and of course military operations. But, the major question that many historians and scholars have asked through out the centuries is how could a nation so strong and developed become almost none existent. The fall of the Roman Empire is a topic that many have found of great interest. It is also filled with hundreds of ideas and reasons. For one not to be lost in detail after detail only a few can be discussed at one time with brief explanation. Unlike many other nations that collapse, Rome?s demise happened very slowly, in fact over centuries. It was a gradual decay, which makes the fall of the Roman Empire so tragic. The fall of the Roman Empire can be traced by examining the religious,

Sandlot Review

Sandlot Review

?The Sandlot? represents the foundation of sport. The kids in this movie played baseball at every opportunity, simply for the love of the game. This attitude towards sport is the purest form of play because they had no one to direct their practice. They did not need a fancy field or fancy uniforms to play well. They were good, because thought they were good. To them baseball was the only reason to go outside, where they could spit, curse, and act like the pros until suppertime.
?Sandlot? takes place during the summer in a small California town, in the early nineteen-sixties. A boy, who in the movie goes by the nickname of Smalls, moves into town. He is trying to adjust to his new stepfather (a baseball fanatic), but moving to a new place does not make this easy. The boys in his new neighborhood play baseball religiously, especially since it is summertime. Smalls has no baseball experience but his new friend, Benny Rodriguez, quickly teaches him. After a very brief period of rejection and name-calling, because of his lack of baseball skills, Smalls is accepted into the sandlot gang.

The Difference between Republicans and Democrats

The Difference between Republicans and Democrats

The Difference between Republicans and Democrats

I am writing this because it seems party activists (Republicans and
Democrats) take for granted that people understand the difference
between the two parties. I want to start by being clear that this is not
and should not be a personal battle or attack. I have no doubt that
Democrats are good people. Republicans are good people too. We both want
similar end results.

We both want what is best for America. We both want to see an end to
poverty. We both want our elderly citizens to live a good life, not to
“choose between rent and medication.” We both want our children to have
the best education in the world. We want our children and our citizens
to be safe from criminals. We both want a thriving economy so Americans
can have a long, enjoyable life. But we don?t agree on the solutions to
these problems.

Democrats believe that government must step in to solve these problems.
Republicans believe that government cannot solve these problems without
creating larger ones. In short, WE BELIEVE IN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Republicans believe that government?s roles should be limited to those
outlined in the Constitution. We believe that local

A Loyalist Perspective The American Revolution

A Loyalist Perspective: The American Revolution

The American Revolution:
A Loyalist?s Perspective

Growing up, we are taught that the Revolutionary war was a necessary war with unmistakable objectives and was fervently fought by all Americans in an effort to rise up against the tyranny of British rule. We are taught to view the war as a Revolution, a fight for freedom, liberty and the right to own property, a fight that would, in the end, be beneficial to every American. In reality, the American Revolution was not supported or condoned by all American colonists, as we are sometimes led to believe.
Although, there are no accurate numbers of how many American colonists remained ?loyal? to the British during the American Revolution, it is indisputable that support for the war was far from universal. John Adams is quoted as saying that a ?full one third were adverse to the Revolution ? an opposite one third conceived a hatred of the English ? the middle one third ? were rather luke-warm.? (Adams, 110)
Due to these opposing forces within the colonies, the American ?Revolution? could be more accurately described as a civil war, pitting neighbor against neighbor in a brutal struggle to define the economy and politics of new nation.

Alienation and Reification of Hunter

Alienation and Reification of Hunter

The Alienation and Reification
Of
Hunter ?Patch? Adams

There are endless crossroads in the human life, and the ability to distinguish these crossroads relies on ones ability to relinquish any preconceptions of the meaning of life. These crossroads embody what sociological critics for centuries have referred to as alienation and reification. They deem the twin theories are the essence of our individual universes. They interpret the abyss human?s deem from their legitimate sense of self. Every human at one divergence in their life has loss the path they were intended to take, thus becoming alienated. This is because society unduly influences humanity into assuming materialism, is the preeminent necessity to strive for, thus experiencing reification. Sociological critics find alienation and reification as important concepts in understanding literature and films. An excellent way to illustrate how important these theories are is to apply them to the story of one man who faced and overcame them. The man I refer to is Hunter Adams, and the movie based on his life is Patch Adam.
In the beginning of the film, Hunter interprets his feelings of alienation when he states, ? the storm was in my mind, or
