  • Object's Image Moves
    4,643 words

Sensation usually refers to the immediate, relatively unprocessed result of stimulation of sensory receptors in the eyes, ears, nose, tongue, or skin. Perception, on the other hand, better describes one's ultimate experience of the world and typically involves further processing of sensory input. In practice, sensation and perception are ...
  • Call For The Death Penalty
    1,176 words
    An often-heated debate is that of capitol punishment. This is tricky subject though since so many people have troubles deciding for themselves where to draw the line with their morals. Some people say that killing in any form is absolutely wrong. Some people agree that killing is wrong, however, if one person kills another it is what they deserve. Both views are quite respectable. The Old Testament does in fact say an eye for an eye. Thus, the punishment should fit the crime. If a person sees fi...

    Albinism ALBINISM Albinism. The word albinism refers to a group of inherited conditions. People with albinism have little or no pigment in their eyes, skin, or hair. Recently a test has been developed to identify carriers of the gene for ty-neg albinism and for other types in which the tyrosinase enzyme does not function.

  • 2 Types Of Superstitious People
    697 words
    SUPERSTITION I met a friend the other day that was really upset and worried. She seemed to me to be on the point of tears. Asking her, I knew that what she was almost hysterical about was the fact that someone had given her sister, as a gift, an expensive kitchen knife. From what I could tell, the sister hadn t made a big deal of it, but my friend was certain that a disaster was sure to follow. Apparently, to her, the gift of a knife would cut short the life of the recipient, or cut off her good...
  • My Eyes
    523 words
    Before that night, I never thought that a beautiful sight could actually take my breath away and make it impossible to speak. I had always thought it was a saying people used to make their meaningless life have a little more significance, a way to charm up the dullness their exposed to on a daily basis. I never thought that a simple view could draw tears from my eyes and cause my heartbeat to quicken. I suppose my lack of confidence in the statement was due to my complete avoidance of anything r...
  • Written In 3rd Person Through Sandra's Eyes
    665 words
    Both stories involve death but the writer's approach their task in very different ways. Compare and contrast how Doyle and Lively create their characters and the different effect this produces. The darkness out there by Penelope lively and the "Speckled band" by Arthur Conan Doyle are both short stories including death but they have many differences. The "Speckled band" is a 19th century piece which will therefore have different views on life e.g. the role of women in society, on the other hand ...
  • Strange Traveller

    The dark, vast expanse of the moon and starlit sky stretched ever onward with its ageless grace. Nothing stirred in it's vastness apart from one, small outline against the backdrop of the stars behind it. None of the various nocturnal creatures, going about their nightly business noticed the small shape moving through the sky, all that is, except for one. A traveller, moving through the forests below had speid the bird. The small creature had followed him for many miles of his great journey and ...
