  • Characteristics Within Pedophiles
    318 words
    Many research studies have tried to find characteristics within pedophiles; however many problems surface when researchers try to define them on the basis of personality. It is often unreliable because the personality behaviors are assumed rather than proven, inconsistent findings, and psychological factors that do arise may be a result of societal factors, rather than pedophilia (MH AM, 2003). Although personalities could not be found as a significant characteristic in pedophilia, other charact...

  • Certain Responsibilities At A Certain Age
    555 words
    When we think of about rights of passage, most often thoughts that come to our mind are ceremonies like birth, puberty and marriage. Rites of passage are things we experience during our entire lifetime from the beginning to the end. These things, however, are different from initiations because an initiation is something where you have to prove yourself in order to be accepted, but a rite of passage is about a more personal acceptance into your own life. And in my opinion the passage into adultho...
  • Drinking Age

  • Banned Books

    Literary Censorship Censorship in American society is inconsistent and biased toward things that affect adults. American censorship may help control the bitter world of television, video games, and music, but what about the literary documents? Literature is defined as the body of written works of a language, period, or culture. This can include newspapers, magazines, textbooks, or even the novels and books that are considered classics. These items are not always put under the microscope and cens...
  • Younger And Older Baby Boomers
    1,204 words
    The ratio of elderly to working-age adults is more than a number. It is also the fuel for political debate over federal entitlement programs for the elderly and a key to understanding consumer demand in any market. Nationally, the ratio will begin to grow rapidly when the oldest baby boomers reach age 65 in 2010, and this has dire implications for Social Security. But the boomers' retirement won't turn every city into Sun City. Aging will be dramatic in places with few children, but some of toda...
  • Eighteen Years Of Age
    805 words
    Should the legal drinking age be eighteen or twenty-one Why don t we make it nineteen or twenty It seems to me that we (America) are full of contradictions, and I am not the only one. The Europeans don t understand why the U.S. allows people under twenty-one to have children, use credit cards, buy real estate, act independently of their parents and defend the country during war time-and yet not allow them to consume alcohol. Now stop I know there are a lot of conservative people out there who th...

Also the...
  • National Minimum Drinking Age Act Of 1984
    1,124 words
    As we are all aware of, the United States of America has ruled that the legal drinking age is twenty-one. Many citizens, including myself, believe this to be preposterous. We all have our reasons for believing which side of the line is best, and this essay includes mine. I know that some of you may believe that twenty-one is a suitable and responsible age. Some of you may even go so far as to say that it should be set higher than that. A few individuals I know would say that the way "kids" act t...

    I am visiting my friend's grandmother. She is 67 and acts like she is I her early 50's. She gave u her nursing career two years ago. She was a volunteer in a grammar school also. She sues to run track, and still stays very active. But now since she's older things are a little bit more difficult. I didn't notice that she was 67; she looked as if she was in her late 50's.
