What is wrong with Gas Prices?

I am afraid, not many Americans will agree with my point-of-view, when I submit that what is wrong with gas prices is that we have become used to low gas prices. I believe that higher energy prices will benefit United States and our planet in many ways, and I for one would be willing to accept the sharp shock that high energy prices will deal to the gas guzzling ways we, the Americans have taken far granted. (Ferguson, 2006) in an article in the Telegraph joked that if gasoline reached $3 per gallon in United Kingdom, people would be queuing from Beaconsfield to Brighton to buy it.

Fossil Fuels Will Last Longer Than People Think Term Paper

… Fossil Fuel Vehicles Will Last Longer Than People Think

With oil prices skyrocketing in recent years, there has been a clamor for finding alternate technologies to replace fossil fuel vehicles with more environment friendly alternatives. One of the possible alternatives to the conventional cars, which admittedly consume a major portion of the world's supply of oil, is the electric car. Some proponents of the electric car, which uses batteries as its power source, have hailed it as the answer to our future transport needs that would soon replace the fuel-guzzling conventional vehicles on our roads. On closer scrutiny of the oil-price phenomenon, and the pros and cons of the electric cars, I am afraid I have bad news for the electric-car lovers: the fossil fuel…. [read more]

The Redemptive Role of the Black Church

Abstract (to be inserted when project is completed)

Table of Contents (preliminary)

The black church holds a special place in African-American culture that differs from the role of the predominantly white churches.

The following will explore the role of the black church that goes beyond the tenets of Jesus Christ and redemption for our sins. It will explore the black church as a symbol of the redemption of the African-American people as a…. [read more]


Plays of British Dramatist, Pam Gems Dissertation

… Edith once engages two marines she meets in a pub in a menage a trois; it is possible, that the bartender formed the fourth of this group. There is no indication that Edith is particularly gifted in the art of making love. She just makes her self available as a willing sexual partner. Except with Marcel Cedran, the married boxer, Edith manages to dissociate physical pleasure from any emotional foundations. With Marcel, Edith is truly in love. But this union is not to be. Anecdotes abound, that Edith's jealous sister informs Marcel's wife of her husband's "philandering." Edith's sexual proclivities and escapades are not a manifestation of her femaleness. Her sexual nature transcends gender. It is a flaw in most superstars. In Edith's case, particularly,…. [read more]


Spear of Destiny Term Paper

… Crucifixion was considered such a humiliating form of punishment that if you were a Roman citizen, you couldn't be crucified, no matter what the offense. It was usually the execution of choice... For slaves and people considered beneath the dignity of Roman citizenship. It was a very slow and agonizing form of death. Victims of crucifixion could languish in agony on the cross for up to several days. The dying process could be shortened by breaking the victim's legs so that the victim could no longer push up with their feet for gasps of air. The thieves on both sides of Jesus had their legs broken, but when the Roman soldiers reached Jesus, one of them, reportedly a centurion named Gaius Cassius Longinus saw he…. [read more]

Philosophy Scenario Evaluation Essay

… In understanding the differences between these answers in viewing them in a modern contemporary context, one can better understand that these answers cannot be viewed objectively as saying something common about the world we live in, aside from the assertion that some distinct action depicting the relationship between the sun and the earth is evident at twilight. However, science has improved over the centuries in order to shine a clearer light on the truth of the matter, eliminating the commonality of responses across the years and across societies.

Impact of High Fuel Costs on the Aviation Industry Research Proposal

… ¶ … High Fuel Costs on the Aviation Industry

Rising Fuel Prices: a global problem on the ground and in the air.

The rising costs of fuel today has become a global crisis for both industries and households.

Lonesome George, Martha, and the Black Rhinoceros Research Paper

… Black Rhinoceros / Extinction

Imagining Extinction:

The Black Rhinoceros and the Last of the Race

This paper intends to discuss the idea of extinction. Such discussion necessarily entails a certain amount of scientific discourse, but in particular I would like to ramify the scientific discussion with some literary and cultural insights as well. The reason for this should be obvious. Extinction as a scientific concept is the end of a species: as species are scientifically defined by the ability to breed and create fertile offspring, the very concept of a species depends upon the notion of reproduction, perpetuation, posterity. Extinction, therefore, entails the cessation of this reproduction, followed by the death of all representatives of the given species. In discussing the idea of extinction, however,…. [read more]


Greek Mythology and Feminine Divinity Essay

… In many instances, Hesiod gave names that unmistakably showed the goddesses' power. In fact, these goddesses did not merely control these aspects of life; rather, the goddesses were these aspects of life, such as: night, day, order, justice, peace, fate, doom, death, sleep, indignation, deceit, friendship, age, strife, blame, woe and the destinies. Furthermore, when the goddesses' names did not make their power obvious, Hesiod explained their power. According to Hesiod, the very reason that he could sing of gods and goddesses was that the persuasive and powerful Muses had given him that gift. Also, Demeter is called a "bright goddess" who is "all-nourishing." Most of the goddesses in Theogony were also wily and favored their children over their husbands, who were castrated or tricked….

Alternative Energy in California Thesis

… Alternative Energy in California

"The energy crisis in California, the coming global energy crisis," a slogan used by energycrisis.com (2001), illustrates the necessity for alternative energy sources in California and by extension the whole world. Increasing wholesale electricity prices, power shortages during peak demand hours and fiscal destabilization of California's major power utility companies has lead to the current crisis. California and the Earth that provides the human race with so many resources are both beautiful places to live. Those resources however, are not unlimited in supply and will soon be exhausted. The state of California can do a better job by using free, limitless energy sources such as solar power, wind power and hydrogen power.

Solar power is the use of energy from the…. [read more]

From the first satellite launched into space by the Soviet Union, to the first animals in space, to space probes, lunar landings, and humans in space, the Soviet Union appeared to rule the race. However, in 1969, the United States launched Apollo 11, which allowed the first human being to walk on the moon, essentially ending much of the…. [read more]


Socratic Reasoning to Construct an Interpretation Term Paper

… Buddhism

Pali Canon Buddhism entails certain central teachings that are easily misinterpreted by critics. Some of these teachings include the abstinence from Tanha and Upadana (desire and attachment), as well as practices with the goal of Nibbana and Nirvana. Usually the problem with these common objections is that an element of teaching is removed from its context and not seen according to the core teaching of the philosophy. Socratic reasoning is then used below in order to link the various teachings with the core concept of the philosophy, which is to evolve and improve spiritually.

Buddhist teaching recommends a number of ideals. Some of these include eliminating Tanha, not seeking for anything, consciousness has no resting place, escaping into an Unborn realm, seeing everything as…. [read more]

Rachel Carson, She Asserts Essay

… Her essay reads as if that is her intended audience.

As an example of the rhetoric used by Carson to support her claim she states "Probably the bulk of such contaminants are the waterborne residues of the millions of pounds of agricultural chemicals that have been applied to farmlands for insect or rodent control and have been leached out of the ground by rains to become part of the universal seaward movement of water." Unless Rachel's essay is one of entire opinion (with no facts) the use of words such as 'probably' really should be frowned upon. Other statements presented by Rachel as facts are equally as ludicrous. Another example of such tomfoolery was Rachel's statement 'the pesticides are there, and as might be expected…. [read more]
