  • Picket Line For The Purpose
    644 words
    Speech -plus, the incorporation of pure speech and some kind of action, is a freedom that is generally not protected strictly as pure speech because actions may endanger safety or conflict with the rights of others. Just as pure speech, it incorporates the spoken word. But in addition to it, the "plus" may take the form of marching, singing, chanting slogans, or the dreaded picketing. The intention of these actions are for the purpose of bringing attention to the speech in which they are trying ...

    Euclid's Fifth Postulate One of the most fascinating aspects of Mathematics is that there exist statements that are both true and false. Perhaps the most famous of these is Euclid's controversial fifth postulate. Throughout history, almost from the postulate conception, mathematics have tried to prove or disprove it. Actually, it seems that even Euclid himself did not entirely trust the postulate, for he avoided using it as long as he could in his great work, The Elements. From the beginning, Eu...

  • One Straight Line Between Two Points
    545 words
    Euclid Of Alexandria may be the best-known mathematician of the world, he is best known for his work on mathematics The Elements. The fact that his work has survived so long, 2000 years in fact, is a tribute to his mathematical genius, however very little of him is known. Three theories abound as to the true nature of this historical figure. Not all historians agree that Euclid was in fact a historical figure, some argue that the school in Alexandria took up the name Euclid to publish their work...
  • Richard's Success In Writing
    306 words
    Bruce Bryant 9/9/0415/16 English II " He came like a sledge sledgehammer, like a giant out of a mountain with a sledgehammer, writing with a sledgehammer... ". - John Henry Clark This quote has a very important meaning because it defines the meaning of Richard Wright's story BlackBoy. This quote and the story both have something in common, such as the first line of the quote that talks about how some person came like a sledgehammer. This line corresponds to how Richard was growing up. He was bro...
  • Alliteration On The Second And Third Lines
    1,375 words
    William Wordsworth (1770-1850) I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance The waves beside them danced; but th...
  • Mars And Bump
    608 words
    The race was set up on Plum Street, the long, level block between Ash and Jackson. By the time they were ready, half the kids in the East End were there, from the tiniest pipsqueaks to high-school ers. The little kids ran races of their own from curb to curb. The bigger kids shouldered blasters and dug into their jeans for coins to bet with. For the first time since last fall, mothers opened windows and leaned out from second stories. Traffic was detoured from both ends of the block. No one coul...
  • Lorelei
    1,122 words
    When it was written in 1925, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, by Anita Loos was heralded as a tremendous novel. It was seen as cutting edge and insightful, yet somewhat risqu'e in its portrayal of Lorelei Lee and her escapades. I can see how this may have been thought at that time, seeing as how women were looked at in such a different way then they are currently. The fact that a women with as little know-how as Lorelei can manipulate men the way that she does, leaves no question as to who is the super...
  • These Lines
    340 words
    "Carnal Knowledge" Assignment Stanza 1:" You, young, whistled again, entered King's, climbed the stone-murky steps to the high and brilliant Dissecting Room where nameless others, naked on the slabs", These lines remind me of how scary and lifeless the operating room can feel. I know this verse is about the cadaver being dissected, but the ultimate purpose of practicing here is also preparation for surgery. I've never actually been a patient in an OR, but I've been in one countless number of tim...
  • Front
    389 words
    Your standing in the lunch line and who happens to be in front of you, but Natalie Smith, that girl you just can't stand, everything she does just irks you. Even the thought of her brings these disturbing thoughts, that can't be that healthy, like wanting to take her by her little, blonde pig tails and swing her off from the highest building, making those little rosy cheeks stained with blood, this bringing the biggest grin to your face. Being her bubbly, cheerful self, she turns around, gives y...
  • Employer Doesnt
    634 words
    Justice is something everyone deserves, but it isnt always what they get. Justice can be unfair at home, school, and even in the workplace. Siblings always seem to complain about chores. This family member may get too many, while another doesnt get enough. Chores are an argument because they arent exactly done willingly. Privileges are another reason to fight. If one brother gets to go out until 12 oclock, the other should have the same curfew. Thats not always the case. An excuse such as hes ol...
  • Stage Fright
    259 words
    The first time I was onstage, I had terrible stage fright. It was a high school production, and even though I didn't have a leading role, I had a pretty big part. I was in about 6 scenes, and had a decent amount of lines. Up until the night of the play, I had told myself that I wasn't going to be scared, that I didn't have stage fright. Opening night, it all changed. We stood backstage, in costume and makeup, and I dared to peak from the side of the stage out at the huge auditorium. It was packe...
  • Long Line To The Ship
    882 words
    Dear Grandfather, December 22, 1880 We finally arrived, mother father and I. we all miss you grandmother and china so much. How is everything, we are all fine... We got off Angel Island three days ago and now we are at our new home. Its not the greatest especially compared to our home with you and grandmother in China, but I have to say that anything is better than the ship ride here, to America. It was so horrible. It was stinky and dirty and so crowded. Remember the night that you dropped us o...
  • Three Farthermost Roman Forts
    521 words
    The Roman Frontiers The reign of Augustus was the last great time of Roman conquests. When he died, he gave Tiberius his advice not to expand the frontiers of the empire further. Afterwards there were only two major wars leading to permanent Roman settlement, Britain in 43 and Dacia in 105-106. But even the relatively peaceful period up to the 220's was filled with constant change in the army and the frontiers. In the beginning of the period you could hardly recognize any existing frontiers. In ...
  • England In Line 1 And 9
    448 words
    Happy is England! I could be content Metre The common metre style in the Italien sonnet is the iambic (line 1-8). But in line 9, 11, 13 and 14 the iambic is interrupted by the trochaic style. These lines rhyme with each other (daughters, waters; clinging, singing) and show a hexametre instead of a penta metre. Rhyme The form of the sonnet shows us an end rhyme with an embracing rhyme scheme from line 1 to line 8 (abba). The next 6 lines have got different rhyme schemes witch I can not analyse (c...
  • 180 Degrees

    The period of Reconstruction, which took place from 1865 to 1877 was a period of rebuilding following the American Civil War. During this period of reconstruction, re-growth and rebuilding, Reconstruction governments tried to secure new rights that would grant blacks and former slaves liberties; re-build the nation, physically and economically; and secure equality. However, Reconstructionist attempts to create equality failed as a result of rising groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, the Radical Rep...
  • Vibrational Raman Line
    1,570 words
    Measurement of Molecular Excitation Spectra by Laser Raman Effect ABSTRACT The phenomenon known as the Raman effect allows us to probe the energy levels intrinsic to a given molecule, giving us knowledge about its rotational and vibrational energies. By illuminating a transparent sample, either liquid, gas, or crystal, with an intense source of light, (preferably monochromatic or at least with sufficiently well- known and distinct spectral lines), inelastic scattering of electromagnetic radiatio...
  • Visible Spectra Lines Of Gaseous Atoms
    1,050 words
    Abstract Spectroscopy is a leading technique in studying internal constitution, structure, and isotope shift of atoms, ions, and molecules. Atoms and ions usually do emit light when exposed to high amounts of heat which makes such spectra lines visible under spectroscope, clearly showing differences between various energy levels present in an atom. The aim of the experiment was to document spectroscope design and how such can be used to observe visible spectra lines of gaseous atoms namely the n...
