They have turned everyday people into computer geniuses, which everyday people years ago had to go ...
  • Later In The Book The Finch Children
    670 words
    Judgement People can often be treated and judged in a less than equal manner before people even know the true nature of the person, such as the way that the Finch children think that Boo Radley is some kind of a monster. Or the way people call Atticus Finch is called a nigger-lover. One of my most favorite quotations is that of Martin Luther King Junior. 'I have a dream, that one day my children will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. ' People should...
  • Married And Their Fans
    309 words
    Brittany has become someone that you would not want your little girl to look up to. Throught her music career she has become idolized by our youth. She currently displays to much of her flesh. That makes the guys in this world think that all girls will do that also and they seem to treat us differently since the 1999 music awards. This show of her flesh got all her fans to think it was alright for girls to display their flesh also. My own opinion in this matter is that she gave the girls in this...
  • Their Problems On Other People
    797 words
    Racism An underlying problem is promoting racism. It is the fact that a lot of people believe, and try to make they believe, that racism no longer exists. Many people today live their lives oblivious to what is happening in the world around them, often trying to convince themselves that racism is not a problem in their world. Others know all about the problem, but don't really realize that they themselves could possibly be adding to the problem by discriminating against someone else's human righ...
  • School Dress Code
    589 words
    Problem Solving Essay I disagree with the school dress code because it doesn't allow people to express themselves, people can't dress for the weather, and it doesn't let people choose how they want to look because it's supposedly a distraction. The dress code is 'The bottom of your shirt must at least meet the top of your pants or shorts, and undergarments should not be exposed. There must be a substantial covering over both shoulders. See-through clothing or clothing that is so very tight that ...

  • Care About The People In Littleton
    839 words
    It seems for the past week or so, the entire world (yes, world, when I was in Spain they showed news coverage of this 24/7 too) has been shaken up by the school shootings in Littleton, CO (I think that's the name of the town, though don't hold me to that). What amazes me about this story is not the fact that two people went into a school and shot a bunch of people (apparently this is the seventh in-school multiple homicide in ten past 18 months), its the fact that the media has given extensive c...
  • Back In The Early 1900's People
    688 words
    1900 Versus 2000 I think that we take for granted the things that we have today. Just look at all of the innovations in technology and quality of living over the last 100 years. Back in the year 1900, things went crazy. All sorts of new inventions were coming out all of the time, and people were becoming rich beyond their wildest dreams. In my opinion, the past 100 years have left us in a completely different world. Back in the early 1900's people were amazed to see a person driving down the roa...

He had no doubt about this world of book burning and he even spread his beliefs by sharing them with Guy Montage. He put the idea in Montage's head that books made ...

    1,186 words
    As time in society goes on, less and less people think. Just like in Fahrenheit 451, people have more things done for them and stray further and further from their imagination. Today technology, mass media and education show some points of how people think less. Technology can be life giving and yet disrupting to all. That is not the only thing this essay is about however. Another point is very few students really question how accurate the textbooks are, how some governments might have tainted h...
