Court

Court is something that almost everyone is afraid of. Whether it be going to court to serve jury duty or going to court for a ticket. I have gotten my fair share of tickets and let me tell you, it isn?t a hay day going to court.
One chilly Tuesday morning I awoke to the blasting racket of sound that my radio was producing. I slowly walked around the house getting dressed and eating breakfast. Once I was completely done getting ready I finally awoke my father. I sat in my cold room until he was all done getting ready. When he got the last hair on his head to finally stand still he shouted at me, ?SON LETS GO!? I took that as my key to shut down my computer and leave. The car ride to the courthouse was short and quiet. Being 10am we were both sorta out of it. I looked at my dad and he gazed back at me, not with a look of fury, but with a look of reassurance, reassurance that everything would be ok. Even though it was just a failure to yield ticket, and wouldn?t be that bad, I was still scared. As

Smoking And Its Effects

Smoking And Its Effects

Smoking and its Effects

Humans are the only species that have the “urge” to inhale harmful smoke into their body. There are all type of smokers. Some smokers are casual smokers, who only smoke in a social scene other types of smokers who are depressed or stressed because they feel that it relieves something in them, and finally there are addictive smokers, who dont know why they even started but they cant stop. What these people dont realize is that the harm they are putting their bodies through. There are many risks of smoking like lung disease, heart disease, and risks in pregnancy to the unborn child. Today it is known that cigarette smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer and death in the United States. One researcher has described cigarette smoking as causing “a chronic inflammatory disorder of the lower airways.”(Doll 901-911)
When we breathe, air enters the upper airway through the nose and mouth where the air is filtered. The inhaled air travels though the trachea to the lungs. Inside the lung there is a main stem called the bronchus and little air sacs called bronchioles. Oxygen is exchanged for carbon dioxide in the blood. The blood then

Gandhi

Gandhi

The movie, Gandhi, was a biography of Mohandas Gandhi and the many accomplishments he had during his lifetime. Gandhi showed us that anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it and he stood up against discrimination without using violence or anger. With this he overcame many obstacles and he went far in life. He was actually able to set free India by opening the eyes of many people.
Gandhi studied law and became a lawyer in London, England. While riding on a train to South Africa he was kicked out of the train for being colored. In South Africa an Indian had to have a pass in order to simply walk the streets. He stayed in South Africa for 21 years to fight this type of discrimination. He continued to preach passive resistance even at times when he and his followers were beaten, thrown in jail and killed. He continued to lead non-violent marches through South Africa, and the white people in South Africa began to have second thoughts about the way the Indians were treated.
During the Boer War, Gandhi organized an ambulance corps for the British army and commanded a Red

Title 9

Title IX: Good for women or bad for men
While improving the equal status of women, Title IX has also had a negative impact on the world of men?s sports; change is necessary. It?s opening line states, ?No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational programs or activity receiving federal financial assistance.? This one line has been the cause of much avoidable controversy. Since its institution in 1972, Title IX has acted as a double edge sword. Women have gained much respect and have made great strides towards achieving their ultimate goal: equal status with men. However, men?s athletic opportunities have been lost in the path to women?s success. Some believe that Title IX should not be changed in any way, yet others believe that alterations are necessary. Title IX has been at the front line in the battle of the sexes since it was passed over 30 years ago. (?Title IX, Education Amendments of 1972?)

Tobacco use – smoking and smokeless tobacco

Tobacco is a plant grown for its leaves, which are smoked, chewed, or sniffed for a variety of effects. It is considered an addictive substance because it contains the chemical nicotine.

The tobacco plant is believed to have originated in the Western Hemisphere. The cultivated species most often grown for North American and European tobacco products is Nicotiana tabacum. The leaves of the plant are prepared for smoking, chewing, or sniffing. In addition to nicotine, tobacco contains over 19 known carcinogens (most are collectively known as “tar”) and more than 4,000 chemicals.

Prior to European influence in the Americas, tobacco was used by the Indians of Mexico and Peru for ceremonies, medicinal purposes, and to alleviate hunger pangs during famines. Columbus is credited with introducing tobacco into Europe. Tobacco use became widely accepted by the Portuguese, Spanish, French, British, and Scandinavians. Explorers and sailors who became dependent upon tobacco began planting seeds at their ports of call, introducing the product into other parts of Europe and Asia.

The colonists introduced tobacco on the American continent in the early 1600s. It became a major crop and trading commodity of the Jamestown colony. Over

Galaxy Express 999

January 24: Galaxy Express 999

Galaxy Express 999 is an adventure story with many twists and side-quests to depict the conflict of humans and mecha that is a real concern for Japanese culture. It is noteworthy that in Japan there is much moral debate over the use of transplants because of this phenomenon (as well as common beliefs). This work portrays Japanese fear of its own technology in a subtle tone, while adhering to the manga through animation techniques: Tetsuro?s iconographic characteristics allows one to ?participate? in his experiences; and the movie and illustrates McCloud?s assertion about the role of the audience and by characters such as the cryptic Shadow, the evil count, and Maetel and her mother graphically emphasize darkness. Shadow is so desperate for her humanity (warmth) that she tries to steal it from human visitors. The evil count represents numerous evils; for example, he is responsible not only for the demise of Tetsuro?s mother but of thousands of orphans seemingly banished to Titan. His hunt of human beings for sport, although these beings obviously possess the same soul as he, adds to this picture because it reiterates the Japanese standing that mecha

NO! On English Only Proposition

NO! On English Only Proposition

Our nation was built with people from different nationalities, values customs, looks and languages that created our ?melting pot? called America. For centuries people have been immigrating from other countries for the opportunity for prosperity in the United States. Many ethnic backgrounds from around the world with different languages come to live and work together in the U.S. We pride ourselves in this nation on being fair, democratic and giving everyone equal rights. Under proposition 63, ?the English language would be made the official state language of California. It would amend the constitution and would prohibit the legislature from passing any laws, which diminish or ignore English as the common language?(Hastings).
This amendment would only apply to those recent immigrants that are new to this country and haven?t had a chance yet to learn English, mostly those people from Asian and Latin countries. Hasting Law Library also states it would also push for these immigrants to learn English as quickly as possible. The proposition is said by some to help create more national unity, but a lot of people including myself see this proposition as a tear in the constitutional rights that make this country what it is and the reason

Smoking

The effects of cigarette smoking can be horrifying. How would you like to have no control over your body While you are in the hospital bed and no one can help you, you can blame it on smoking. 3,000,000 people die of smoking every year and it is growing. You can stop that ?DON?T SMOKE?. Smoking is dangerous, not only to those who smoke; but to non-smokers and unborn children as well. Cigarette smoking is also physically and socially harming. While you are reading this paper you will be introduced to the diseases you can get, the chemicals in cigarettes, and the percentage of people who die of smoking (second hand, inhaling, etc.)
The large particles in cigarette smoke, commonly known as ?tar?, collect in the branching points of the lungs. The tar contains carcinogenic compounds that increase the risk of lung cancer. The small particles in cigarette smoke, including carcinogens, irritants, and corrosive chemicals, collect in the small air sacs in the lungs and damage them. These air sacs are where the blood absorbs oxygen from the air. When the small particles from the cigarette smoke are absorbed into the blood stream and transported to other parts of

Full Metal Jacket: An Accurate Portrayal of the Vietnam War

The Vietnam War was one of the most controversial American military involvements of the twentieth century. There has always been much discussion as to why the Americans were forced into defeat and as to why so many American soldiers died for a purpose that was not achieved. Many directors have made attempts at recreating the horrors of this war, and many have been criticized for providing an unrealistic depiction of it. In 1987, Full Metal Jacket, a Stanley Kubrick film, dared to oppose these traditional expectations of failure. Beginning in a Parris Island boot camp and ending in the Vietnamese city, Hue, it attempts to show, ?the distasteful irony between the desire for combat and true terror of war.?1 The film, Full Metal Jacket provides its audience with a historically accurate picture of all aspects of the Vietnam War.
Although the screenplay is based on a fictional story line revolving around a Vietnam War journalist, Stanley Kubrick provides a variety of factional occurrences that would be expected of a Vietnam War movie, which create a realistic setting. First of all, the movie begins at the U.S. Marine

Healthcare In America

Healthcare In America

In Depth: Healthcare in America
America is without a question the leading country of medical and scientific advances. There always seem to be a new medical breakthrough every time you watch the news or read the paper, especially in the cure of certain diseases. However, the medical research requires an enormous amount of money. The U.S. spends the most money on health care yet many people, mainly the working class Americans are still without any type of health insurance and thus are more susceptible to health risks and problems.
Most Americans obtain health insurance from employers or government programs, but then there are those groups of Americans, approximately 41.2 million people in 2001, who are without health insurance. There has also been a shift in the typical uninsured individual, resulting in those whose annual income of $75,000 or more increasing 77% from 1995 to 2001 of the total number of uninsured people, according to the National Center for Policy Analysis. Thus, rather than the very poor or unemployed comprising the largest group of the uninsured, it is the middle, working class of people that are increasingly lacking health insurance. 49.6% of the uninsured are from the ages of 18 to 24, followed
