Psychedelics on American Music Research Paper

… The psychedelic music registered a protest of form rather than culture; it was secular, highly creative nonconformist and clearly in protest of the white middle class. Many ionic psychedelic musicians had at least dabbed in drugs and the drug culture, if not fully immersed in it. They had achieved a kind of escape through the drugs and also relief and freedom that seemed impossible to have in the 1960's society. The musicians replaced the message form of songs that existed with a mood form of songs since they were under the influence of these drugs and hence they sublimated their anxieties and their angst by attempting to just feel better rather than examine how they would create a systematic change that would make everyone feel….

… The government even forced the youth to be a part of the army which led to Germany's s army a big and prominent one in the war. (Jarausch, 2006) Since this was the case, the entire population of Germany became highly aggressive.

The Nazi supporting population had been so brainwashed by the previous regime that they had completed been washed away of all their tolerance.

African-American Studies Harlem Renaissance Research Paper

… Each work is distinctive of the Harlem Renaissance period in style and content.

The benefactors of the Harlem Renaissance period began as the African-American community. African-Americans have experienced a long and horrific history within American history. This group suffered along with all the other groups that compose the American people during WWI. In the history of America, often experience and contributions during wartime help facilitate social change and steps toward equal rights after the war is over, as is the case with blacks, women, and homosexuals. African-Americans had gained some respect and social mobility because of their contributions in the great war and the Harlem Renaissance was an expression of that joy and freedom that came from time having passed since Reconstruction and WWI's conclusion.….

Mario Cuomo Research Paper

… Despite Cuomo's impressive rhetoric and his relatively flowery language about the shining city on the hill, he states that the Democrats will win based on substance over style, a covert reference to the relatively uncharismatic Democrat Walter Mondale vs. The beloved former actor Ronald Reagan.

At the beginning of Cuomo's speech, he says: "Please allow me to skip the stories and the poetry and the temptation to deal in nice but vague rhetoric," before launching into an attack on Reagan's optimistic speech (Cuomo 1984). This opening is striking, given the degree to which poetry and metaphor rather than facts and statistics dominate the style of Cuomo's speech. Even with his most compelling anecdotes, his focus is more upon representative images, like the woman in the…. [read more]

Sylvia Plath's Lady Lazarus: The Carnival Barker Research Paper

… Sylvia Plath's "Lady Lazarus:" the carnival barker of personal tragedy

The 20th century feminist poet Sylvia Plath is almost as famous for her biography as she is for the greatness of her poetry, despite the fact that her confessional style has proven to be so influential upon subsequent generations of poets. Plath's suicide attempts while still an undergraduate at Smith College, coupled with her untimely demise as a young mother at her own hands has caused many critics to interpret her work solely through the lens of her personal life ("Sylvia Plath," The Academy of American Poets, 2011). Plath, however, in all of her poems often takes on different 'voices' or personas. Even her autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar was originally published under a pseudonym…. [read more]

Effect of Beauty and Body Image in Advertising Research Paper

… ¶ … Beauty and body image in advertising

It is common knowledge among the advertising world that publicity sells. In order to achieve a high degree of profit in the globalized world, the most interesting and eye catching advertisements usually impact the targeted public and achieve their goals in promotion and selling. However, more and more people are becoming reluctant to certain products precisely because of the sometimes aggressive and even offending publicity. From this point-of-view the present paper argues that the perception of women's body and their comparison to HAMs (highly attractive models) have a negative influence on the advertising efforts for particular products.

The structure of the paper takes into account precisely the impact HAMs and the meaning of the concept have on…. [read more]

American Street Gangs Term Paper

… American street gang problem is one of a layered problem. The image f the American gangster has been glamorized by Americans, and shown to be one way, perhaps the easier way, of accomplishing the American dream. Unfortunately, as anyone living in a major American city like Chicago, Boston, or LA can tell us, there is nothing glamorous about bullets ripping through the paper thin walls of a housing development or finding your own child lying dead in the street before he or she has even reached puberty as a result of gangland violence. American street gangs have evolved, spreading now beyond the cities, to the suburbs and are now doing battle for the rural areas in order to expand the operations that feed the gangland….

Guild of America (Wga) Strike Term Paper

… ¶ … Guild of America (WGA) Strike

As of Monday November 1, 2007 the Writers' Guild of America (WGA) is officially on strike, having been unable to come to a contract renewal agreement with the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers (AMPTP). Strike avoidance mediation has failed to fully resolve the major issues that the Guild has, mostly with regard to payment of writers. The effects of this strike are yet to be seen, but if the 1988 22-week strike of the same guild gives us any indication it could be a long and expensive phenomenon. Many laypeople are intensely interested in how the current Writer's Guild of America strike will affect the television shows they watch and enjoy every week. To the average…. [read more]

Leadership Style Made Abraham Lincoln a Great Essay

… ¶ … Leadership Style Made Abraham Lincoln a Great Leader?

I have chosen Abraham Lincoln as the subject of this research for several reasons: one, he is one of the most revered and respected leaders in the history of the country; two, he is the man who emancipated the slaves and led America through the bloody, destructive Civil War; and three, Barack Obama has said on many occasions that he looks up to Lincoln and admires Lincoln for not just his accomplishments but for his leadership in desperate times. I have a high opinion for Obama, the enormous problems and challenges he faces and hence his respect for Lincoln stimulates a renewed interest for me in my studies.

As to the kind of leadership that…. [read more]

Legba the Voodoo Spirit Research Paper

… People from Haiti were transported to other islands to work on plantations and other menial manual labor positions. Any population who suffers from empirical rule will have to face a complete alteration in their perception of the world and their place in it. They were also taken to Africa where Haitian voodoo spread to those new populations as well. Author Carole Davies writes in the book Encyclopedia of the African Diaspora that:

Papa Legba represents the Haitians who have slowly journeyed a long tiresome path far from home, Africa, and who have struggled and endured down the long cyclical path toward fulfilling their destiny back to their ancestral home, across the vertical line, by trying to feel, think, and behave according to the desires of….

Dream Act -- Immigration Controversy Research Paper

… He's a bitter right wing Senator who is clearly out of touch with diversity in the U.S.

Second Political Perspective: President Obama believes the Dream Act is "common sense legislation" that gives students who "grew up in the United States a chance to contribute to our country's well-being by serving in the U.S. armed forces or pursing a higher education" (White House). The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office study shows the Dream Act will "…cut the [federal] deficit by $1.4 billion and increase government revenues by $2.3 billion over the next 10 years" (White House). Obama says it is a "myth" to say the Act is "amnesty." The young people who become participants are required to attend college or join the military and pass criminal background…. [read more]

Recent events have raised public awareness regarding children and the fact that they are extremely vulnerable to a series of environments in spite of the fact that authorities are doing their best to protect them. The number of predators that are primarily interested in exploiting children in also on the rise, and it is particularly important for society to discover when it is safe and when it is not safe to allow children to interact with certain environments. Children in general actually encourage some individuals to take advantage of them through the behavior they put across, this further contributing to the gravity of the situation and making it difficult for parents to come up with….

Relationship Between Men and Woman After Agricultural Revolution Research Paper

… ¶ … men and women change after the Agricultural Revolution?

Over the course of time the roles of men and women have changed. Modern feminists may believe that they are responsible for the improved status of women in modern society but they may be surprised to learn that in many ways their efforts have served to return women to the role that they once enjoyed.

Through the information discovered from archeological digs, all of human history can be divided into three broad, and overlapping, periods

Righteous Gentiles Term Paper

… Jew Gentiles

The Word "holocaust" actually means a burnt sacrifice. Everyone is aware of the atrocities that were committed against the Jews following the First World War. It has been believed that Jews were always subject to hatred and persecution in Europe. Due to this reason, not many Jews found it a new thing to be discriminated against. They were subject to discrimination yet somehow Jews found way that would keep their culture alive. In 1919, a new political party was founded in Germany that was quite nationalistic and racists to begin. With. This party went on to blame Jews for all the problems including the defeat that the German's had incurred in the Second World War. (Drucker and Block 133)

Discourse Analysis Politics Research Proposal

… Linguistic Politics and the Reinforcement of Social Power Hierarchies

Discussion of language and how it functions socially. This section is meant to stimulate the readers interest and will raise the critical questions which my paper addresses.

Language has the potential to be a deeply powerful instrument when wielded to political, social or hierarchical interests. Distinct power structures are implicated in the nuances of linguistic communication, from the selection of words to the semantics of context; from the seemingly simple colloquialisms which reflect cultural in-groups and out-groups to the complex interactions between differing linguistic traditions; from the imposition of a set of normative cultural terminologies to the construction of meanings centered on certain inherencies within a culture. Indeed, must is as stake in the way our…. [read more]

Tuer's methodology of analysis and research of video, and in the 21st century we expand this concept to apply to visual media in general, proves that tapping into media to communicate politics is effectively tapping into a sort of group consciousness and/or unconsciousness. She states

Soviet Afghan War Term Paper

… ¶ … Soviet-Afghanistan War. Specifically it will analyze the Afghan resistance in the Soviet-Afghanistan War, including the factions, leaders, tactics, ideologies, and external connections. The war between the Soviet Union and Afghanistan began in 1979 and did not end until 1989. Throughout the war, the mujahidin rebel forces repeatedly outfoxed the Soviet troops, leading to a war that dragged on for ten years that many call "Russia's Vietnam." More than 25,000 Soviet troops were killed during the war, and the loss to guerilla fighters undermined the Soviet military and public opinion.


In the 1970s, Afghanistan was still a monarchy, and many of its leaders, who followed Marxism and Maoism instead, did not support Islam. However, of the approximately 12 million people…. [read more]

Gestational Diabetes Term Paper

… Health

Gestational Diabetes

The purpose of this paper is to introduce and analyze the topic of human development. Specifically it will discuss gestational diabetes relating to everyday life. Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnant women who have not had diabetes prior to their pregnancy, and doctors are not really sure why it occurs, but they do believe that usage of a mother's insulin by the placenta is involved. In other words, the mother is not able to create enough insulin for her body to use, and it can affect both the mother and the baby. Other experts believe that the disease is caused by elevated hormone levels that only occur during pregnancy (Lewis, 2002). The disease affects about 4% of pregnant women, but that adds up….

US Military Bay of Pigs Term Paper

… U.S. Military Bay of Pigs

War has basic principles by which it is conducted and it is important to abide by these. There are nine core principles of war which are objective, offensive, mass, economy of force, maneuver, unity of command, security, surprise, and simplicity. There have been many wars fought by different nations including the United States of America. A similar operation was conducted in Cuba by the counter revolutionary Cuban exile forces. These exile forces were supported by the CIA and the operation was to be carried out from the Bay of Pigs. President Kennedy's approval was received but the operation turned out to be a complete failure. It is the thesis of this paper that an analysis of the principles of war…. [read more]

Profit Colleges Term Paper

… But attempted policing of aggressive recruitment tactics remains challenging, and the for-profit educational industry has many influential lobbyists on Capital Hall. When 'buying' a degree, regardless of the institution, the moral is clear: let the buyer beware and do not assume that to have a college degree and to be in debt is inherently superior to being without one.

Outsourcing of Government Functions a US Study Term Paper

… Government Outsourcing

The Outsourcing of Government Functions: a U.S. Study

Outsourcing of government functions is one of the most highly controversial practices of the 21st century. There are several prevailing positions regarding the outsourcing of government contracts to private companies. Valid arguments exist for increasing government outsourcing and for limiting future outsourcing as well. Regardless of which side one happens to be one, once thing is certain, outsourcing is a trend that is likely to continue in the future, particularly in the face of the global economy and advances in communication that make it easier than it was in the past.

Political Socialization Term Paper

… Such concern, nevertheless, acknowledges that the mass media is an important learning tool for the political socialization of the public.

Arguments that Political Socialization is an Innate Process

Some people argue that people having similar social background, income or education levels, a common religion, race or gender share largely similar political views; hence political socialization is more of an innate rather than a learned process. While there is no denying the fact that similar opinions on political issues are likely to be shared by people belonging to the same religion, race, gender, income group or social background, such similarity is developed not due to an inborn capacity in individuals but through shared economic or material considerations.

For example, the reason why businessmen, are likely to…. [read more]

War in Afghanistan Term Paper

… War in Afghanistan

The foundational modern conflict associated with Afghanistan is a fascinating culmination of failed international relations, international out-fighting and national infighting. Within the nation of Afghanistan there are countless examples of outside forces challenging the internal workings of a nation and in a sense playing out their own national agendas, while the already challenged and poor nation of Afghanistan paid the ultimate price for the conflicts. This is not to say that Afghanistan did not already have the seeds for conflict, this can be attested to repeatedly in it divisive history, but the external influence. One of the most fascinating aspects of this modern conflict is that first hand and very detailed information is available, as the majority of the events, occurred within…. [read more]

Although writing a research paper is never easy, and demands hard work, time, and patience, the task need not be daunting. The process of writing a research paper entails five major steps. First, start with a narrow and focused topic in the area of interest. One of the main mistakes made by beginning writers is attempting to tackle a topic that is too broad. The best research papers have a clear focus and a thesis statement that summarizes it. Second, do all the requisite footwork such as locating bibliographic materials and conducting searches using the Internet and electronic databases. Ideally, all reference materials for the paper….
