  • Taglioni's La Sylphide
    898 words
    La Sylphide La Sylphide brought more than just another ballet into the world. It marks the beginning of a remarkable period of time - the Romantics. Up until this time in history, ballets were relatively predictable and in no ways a challenge to the status quo. Often times they consisted of the pavanne, social dances, and the like (Anderson 38). Of course, ballet had evolved, but it had by no means, been a challenge to society. La Sylphide began to alter this concept. The setting is France in 18...

  • Movies About Jesse James
    4,236 words
    Jesse James: History Project Over one hundred years ago that "dirty little coward" Bob Ford killed Jesse Woodson James in his home in St. Joseph, Missouri.

  • James Down The Hall To Kenny's Room
    3,894 words
    My Beautiful Friend Suicide is a deep and complicating loss. It leaves a profound and everlasting effect on everyone it touches. The mere word "suicide" conjures up a sorrowful and tragic image coupled with pity and disbelief at such an outrageous, selfish and extreme act. When someone you care about commits suicide, the burden of guilt and pain are overwhelming. The aftermath of a suicide is complex and almost seems to consume you. The tragedy of loss is only magnified. I was present when one o...
  • Steam Engine Before James Watt
    1,111 words
    James Watt James Watt was born January 19th, 1736 at Greenock and at this time no one would even begin to imagine his effect on the Industrial Revolution. When James was fifteen years old he had read books about and become accustomed to Philosophy (kind of like modern physics). He had also completed many of his own chemical experiments and even started to produce and construct his own products such as a small electronic device that really surprised his friends. In 1755 he set out on horseback an...
  • James Taylor
    2,087 words
    When looking at the now 53-year-old James Taylor it is difficult to imagine him as a ground-breaking rock and roll musician. The tall, lanky, bald man with the mild demeanor has made an indelible mark on the music industry and is showing no signs of riding off into the sunset. While his songs acted as a pseudo-soundtrack to the '70's generation they are an amazing look into his troubled past. In addition to coping with his personal demons Taylor has become known for being one of music's stronges...
  • James Baldwin
    277 words
    The Price of A Ticket My response to The Price of A Ticket, is that the documentary about James Baldwin's life was well stated. In the beginning of this video the narrator introduced James Baldwin as well as his family. They told how Baldwin progressed from a boy to a man in Harlem, and James Baldwin himself illustrated his thoughts of the time. I believe his father played a bigger role in making James the person he was than he was given credit for. Before James Baldwin was an accomplished write...

  • Time James
    896 words
    The supermarket was going to be a doomsday dungeon this Sunday afternoon for James Faruggulo, but he knew he had to go. He had given the housekeeper a week off to lie around in the warm tropical waters off of Jamaica. She did the laundry, cooking, cleaning and of course, she always fetched the groceries. Even the perfect layer of atmosphere which lay upon the earth that day could not keep his mind from wandering. Bright blues could be seen through the sky, bright yellows bouncing from his windsh...
