  • Different From The Ancient Time
    954 words
    Modern vs. Ancient Ideals of Warfare Ever since the idea of civilization evolved, there has always been warfare. Men are always at each other's throats just waiting for a reason to unveil the abilities of their testosterone. It is rare nowadays to go to a public place like a bar or a club without some sort of dispute breaking out into a public catastrophe. This is how it is now and exactly how it was during the times of Hesiod, Archilochus, and Tyrtaeus. During our times warfare has become a lot...
  • Two Housing Types Of The Chickasaw
    285 words
    The Chickasaw culture was very unique. They were the most feared warriors of the American Southeast, and anyone who messed with them came to regret it. The Chickasaw took on all comers, including tribes four to five times their size and never lost until they picked the wrong side in the American Civil War. Even then, this nation was the last Confederate government to surrender to Union forces. The Chickasaw have little or no memories of the platform mounds left by the earlier Mississippian mound...

  • Shame And Embarrassment
    363 words
    In the course of our lifetime we are caught in situations that we truly don't want to be in. When all is going well you occasionally get that bump in the road and it seems as if all is disrupted. There are times when things become unavoidable to the point where we are left with two choices, to run, or to go through with it. Tim O'Brien found himself somewhere he never thought he would be, Minnesota. He was on the run from that infamous little slip of paper, his draft note. Tim was to be a soldie...

  • Mention Of Lysistrata's Husband
    1,317 words
    By: April Gibbs Lysistrata by Aristophanes I think the story of Lysistrata is both interesting and surprising. I did not expect a story that was written in 411 BC to have much of anything I could relate to our world today. Aristophanes deals with very real, every day issues in this story. Although he is actually poking fun at them by making the situations as absurd as possible, there are still many very real topics discussed in this work. I think the most prevalent theme is that of gender roles ...

  • Left Side Of The Bunker
    1,304 words
    Reflecting on my experience in the Persian Gulf War many things are readily accessible in my twisted memory. Time, distance and other irrelevant aspects are distorted and askew; each recollection is as daunting and subdued as the next. I can recall the fighting all too clear; days, nights, weeks and months in battle, minimal water and mealy scraps of food to eat. The time was 1500 hours in late February 1991 although it was around midday the sky resembled that of dark night. The ground war had b...

There are few who have made the impact on their field of work that James Nachtwey has on photography, specifically war photos, but, then again, there are few people like James Nachtwey. Nachtwey was born in Syracuse, New York in 1948. As a young boy, his family moved to Massachusetts, where he spent the remainder of his childhood. In 1966, at the age of 18, Nachtwey enrol...

    ' "Halt,' I said. They kept down the muddy road, the hedge on either side. "I order you to halt,' I called. They went a little faster.
