The numbers about other birth control methods don't lie either. Eight to nine percent of adolescents used a condom always for STD prevention and seventee...
  • 2 Digit Dates To 4 Digit Dates
    969 words

    Introduction The discipline of archaeology can open up the past to us in a way in which we can enter into a dialogue with our ancestors. There are many ways it can do this: stratigraphic excavation, pottery typology, socio-historic interpretation, etc. However, one thread running through this increasingly focused pursuit is that of dating the physical findings to a particular cultural timeline. This is crucial if we are to know, with as much certainty as is allowed, who we are speaking with. Ind...
  • People Gain Popularity Through Dates
    1,951 words
    Dating in our culture is a mysterious thing. The actual definition of a 'date' is different for certain people, in certain places and at a certain point in time. Even so, trying to define what dating really is very difficult. But in a general understanding of the term, dating is two people spending time together and going out and doing things, without any real sense of commitment towards each other. That is, they are both generally free to go on dates with other people as well. Focusing on heter...
