    1,118 words
    It is, at times, stated that paradoxes allow for misinterpretation in almost every aspect of life. Wherever those paradoxes appear, conflicts, both external and internal, arise and misunderstandings ensue. In the two novels The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende and Kiss of the Spiderwoman by Manuel Puig, however, the characters Alba and Molina, respectively, create paradoxes through their subversive actions. These paradoxes create conflicts in self-interest, which, in turn, reveal the impos...
  • Web Problem Of Continuum Versus Discreteness
    2,114 words
    web problem of continuum versus discreteness seems to be related to the issue of infinity and finiteness. The number of points in a line served as the logical floodgate which led to the development of Set Theory by Cantor at the end of the 19th century. It took almost another century to demonstrate the problematic nature of some of Cantor's thinking (Cohen completed Godel's work in 1963). But continuity can be finite and the connection is, most times, misleading rather than illuminating. Intuiti...

    1,478 words
    What is affirmative action Affirmative action is defined as a tool to monitor the consequences of employment practices. Affirmative action analyses determine whether employment practices result in a diverse applicant pool. The following quote by the former United States Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, seems to summarize the government's perception of this sensitive subject: An Affirmative Action Plan is a careful, systematic analysis of who youve got, whos out there, and how you are going to b...
  • Effects Of Our Actions As A Species

    A Rivet Poppers Personally, I do not agree with much of what has been said in this article. I see this as an extreme example of leftist propaganda. The only purpose of this article is to shoot down the practices of the common people. I found it especially intriguing when the authors named almost every politician of the day, stating that they are all rivet poppers. The authors obviously do not want to look at the big picture, and are content to see everything through tinted glasses. I cannot say ...
