Comets are small, fragile, and irregularly shaped. Most are composed of frozen gas. However, some are composed of frozen gas and non-volatile grains. They usually follow very strict paths around the sun. Comets become most visible when they cross the sun. This also applies to people who view comets with telescopes. When a comet gets near the sun it ...

  • Very Intelligent Address On The Subject
    1,207 words
    Mary Wollstoncraft's book, 'The Vindication of the Rights of Women,' is an incredibly insightful look into the life of women in the early portion of this century.

  • Point Of View
    1,036 words

Pardon the assumption, I have to have somewhere to work from. "Did You Just See That?" I believe i...

It is not until we take a closer look do we see their flaws and imperfections. The appearances are important in these two works. The way the viewer describes the monument is similar to the way a viewer would describe Gilgamesh. Both subjects are beautiful and unique but they are not perfect. They both have fla...
  • Your Graphic Look
    676 words
    Creating a graphic is very similar to expressing yourself to someone or writing. It is a very complicated process.

My graphics vary depending on what conversations I've had that day or sometimes even what I've eaten. You must first think of something in particular that happened that day or maybe even that we...

    1,979 words
    Popular stereotypes frequently present the scientist and the artist as extreme opposites in their pursuit of understanding- the scientist as being objective, disciplined and rational, and artist as being subjective, impulsive and imaginative. Yet are they really so different in the ways they look at the world? To what extent do you consider these stereotypes accurate, and to what extent do you consider them distortions of the ways in which the sciences and the arts give us their knowledge? Livin...
