• A Tour Of Nbc Studios In New York City
    780 words
    For my paper I am going to be writing on something other than a Video Exhibition, since I couldn't find one. However, I was able to undertake something which I found very appealing, a tour of NBC studios in New York City. The father of my friend's girlfriend gave the tour to a few friends and myself. Since he knew all of us, he decided to give us a private tour. When we first entered the building, I was amazed by the sense of centric ity that came over me; it felt as if I was in the center of t...

  • Tour De France Drug Abuse
    4,819 words
    The question of drug use among athletes in what was previously considered by the unknowing public to be a rather pristine sport, cycling, is important in that it will affect all future Tours and will place them and the athletes under scrutiny. To begin with, in Europe until the 1998 scandal occurred, despite a few exceptions, cycling was considered a drug free sport. The 1998 drug scandal tarnished the Tour de France and the reputation and image of other sports. The media response to the scandal...

    Two paleontologists, Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, were financed by John Hammond, a very wealthy man. The two were visited by a man named Morris who was very interested about Hammond.

Part of the plan was to buy large quantities of amber, which drew attention from Morris, because amber was of little or no value. Shortly after the visit the two paleon...

They each contribute an essential part of the process and organisational strategies and without co-operation of each unit organising a tour would be practically impossible. Disagreements could ca...

We found the average scores of the top 100 PGA tour players. We found that Tiger Woods was actually ranked in second place, one spot behind the scoring ave...
  • Korn Family Value

    "Family Values Tour", and their relation to teen suicide and narcotic abuse are some further aspects to look into. The first issue that is brought to one's attention would be how Korn's success has not had to depend on frequent radio and TV airplay. In true fact KORN has had barely any radio play at all, not to mention the fact that most of their videos can appear only after twelve o'clock at night. Even after the lack of airplay, KORN always appears to get their message across. Their dedicated ...

    Last month, an anomaly occurred in the professional golf world. Annika Sorenstam, a woman, played in a PGA tour event. That's right: not LPGA, but PGA. This was, and still is, a controversial matter. Many people, most of them males, do not believe that she, or any other woman for that matter, should be participating in PGA events, but rather competing in LPGA events only. Annika has every right to compete in a PGA tour event. The people who oppose this last statement are, for the majority, male...
