Business Rhetoric: Drilling Essay

… The cumulative effect of these impacts may indeed transform entire communities -- turning previously rural, agrarian areas into "fractured communities."

The list is impressive in that it covers many elements of a construction site that will have an environmental impact if they are not managed properly. The building of roads, noise pollution near the site, and potential deforestation are concerns which can be realized by any enterprise. The real concern from locales and environmental groups comes from the use of water that has been contaminated by chemical elements. The groups who either oppose or are, at the very least, concerned with the use of fracking have vilified the process because of the "potential groundwater and well water contamination" (City of New York, 2010).

… Oprah Winfrey is one of the most well-know and recognizable personalities of the 21st century. She has accomplished a great deal throughout her life. However, perhaps her greatest contribution has been her philanthropy throughout the years. According to Oppedisano

As a consequence, "philanthropy has strong roots in religious beliefs, in the history of mutual assistance, in democratic principles of civic participation, in pluralistic approaches to problem solving and in American t

raditions of individual autonomy and limited government" (The Council on Foundations, 2002,…. [read more]

Successful Storytelling? Term Paper

… Many times, I did nothing but just lie there staring blankly into the dark, recollecting upon the events that had taken place during the day, in fact as the holiday progressed the thinking session filled more time than the sleeping did.

Always so still, the world outside felt to us, but a single boring moan permeated the silence of the room, my grandmother snoring enormously until the second her eyelids come wide awake. It was impossible for the room to become quiet enough for me to move into a deep dream leaving with me with a considerate trance in its place. Interesting enough, my feet would seem to slip in and out of the sheet as my concentration did with reality and dreams; it would…. [read more]

… S. -- Japan political relationship." (Shepard, "Cinematic realism, reflexivity and the American 'Madame Butterfly' narratives," Page 60)

The exotic in western culture and in 19th and 20th century opera representations often refers to objects and people that are Asian and African:

"The word "exoticism" relates, etymologically, to places or settings "away from" some vantage point considered normative, most often that of the observer him- or herself. Like so many "-isms" (idealism, Romanticism), exoticism can be broadly encompassing and relatively abstract: an ideology, a diverse collection of attitudes and prejudices, an intellectual tendency. Or it can be broad yet concrete: a cultural trend with rich and varied manifestations. In literature and the visual arts, for example, exoticism is generally sought and found in a work's subject….

Crime Prevention and Control Term Paper

… Crime Prevention and Control - U.S. Justice System and Proactive Policing

The prevention and control of crime have hounded American society despite the expanse of its economic and political power in the world. Stanford Professor Friedman traces the failure of the efforts of the U.S. criminal justice system in curbing or preventing crime to the Americans' well-entrenched cultural taboos of their Manifest Destiny as a superior people and their demand for individual freedom and rights. From these taboos grew out prison buildings, the police, the courts, more severe court sentences and the celebrity culture. With the persistently increasing crime rates, preventive measures, like preventive detention, were tried. But preventive detention did not work. President Johnson believed that the root causes of crime were racism, poverty…. [read more]

Academic Profile of Home Schooling Case Study

… ..the general public is beginning to have a positive...attitude about...home education." A June 1994 NBC news/Wall Street Journal poll indicated that among "the general public only 28% favor home schooling over traditional schools" (Clark, 1994), and, in a Family Research Council poll taken in September 1993, the public was evenly split at 44% each as to whether home schooled students learn as well as publicly schooled students (Clark, 1994).

… Environmental Theory and Emancipatory Knowledge of Knowing -- Nightengale's Nursing Theory

Introduction- Modern nursing is a rewarding, but challenging, career choice. The modern nurse's role is not limited only to assist the doctor in procedures, however.

The caregiver role includes those activities that assist the client physically, mentally, and emotionally, while still preserving the client's dignity. In order for a nurse to be an effective caregiver, the patient must be treated in a holistic manner.

Art of Math Term Paper

… Mathematics and Art

Mathematics is often treated as a distant and very different discipline from the arts, but in fact the arts make use of mathematics in a number of ways. The relationship between mathematics and music should be evident, while the relationship between mathematics and the graphic arts may be less apparent. Paintings, drawings, and designs can be analyzed according to mathematical principles to see ways in which the artist balances different shapes and forms according to mathematical principles or draws on mathematical theory for inspiration. The art of different periods may reflect different mathematical ideas and give more or less emphasis to these ideas, but in some degree, art is always based on mathematics in that math explains relationships, identifies what would be….

Merchant of Venice Is a Framework Term Paper

… ¶ … Merchant of Venice is a framework for expressing Shakespeare's anti-slavery sentiments in a most vivid and gruesome way. It has been argued that it is too obvious, for Shakespeare to be expressing these sentiments, speaking out of the mouth of Shylock, the angry, vengeful Jew, but that is only because Shakespeare makes his Jewish character all too real. Shakespeare makes Shylock human through his weaknesses, his vanity, pride and humanity, and he speaks out of pain suffered at the hands of a Christian culture, which hates him.

The plot of the Merchant of Venice, combines a common fairy tale theme, where the prince (Bassanio), in order to marry the princess (Portia) must choose the correct object from among three objects (caskets), and is…. [read more]
