- Mr.Rodgers (new)
He basically saved public television. In 1969 the government wanted to cut public television funds. Mister Rogers then went to Washington where he gave an amazing merely six minute speech. By the end of the speech not only did he charm the hostile Senators, he got them to double the budget they would have initially cut down. The whole thing can be found on youtube, a video called “Mister Rogers defending PBS to the US Senate.”
“Certain fundamentalist preachers hated him because, apparently not ...

Asian Americans in Enclaves
The dictionary definition of enclave is “1. a country, or especially, an outlying portion of a country, entirely or mostly surrounded by the territory of another country; or 2. any small, distinct area or group enclosed or isolated within a larger one (e.g., a Chinese-speaking enclave in London)” (dictionary.com). The reading by Chung talks about “ethnic enclaves” and its three types: the one-step-up, the new immigrant, and the suburban enclaves.
Automobiles like these are around the world everyday, and their exhaust destroys our air everyday.
Our environment is a major aspect of our life today. Many of us don\'t take our Earth seriously and think that as long as pollution doesn\'t hurt them they can go ahead and throw garbage on the ground or spill oil down the drain. Well to many people have that theory and they are killing off our Earth and also physically harming themselves from the air they breath and the water they swim in. Our...

Christianity and Islam are two of the world’s largest religions. The two are different in beliefs but are similar in origin. Like many religions both Islam and Christianity claim to be the one and only true way to God. Although Islam and Christianity differ in major ways, they also share some similarities.

Urban Sprawl: Pro and Con
The term "urban sprawl" has a bad ring to it. The name reinforces the view that metropolitan growth is ugly, inefficient, and the cause of traffic congestion and environmental harm. Before we decide we are against urban sprawl, however, we should be clear about what it is and why we do not like it. Once we look at its specific characteristics, we can recognize their causes and what, if anything, to do about them.
My study of metropolitan growth indicates that thre...
Hard Times Will Follow
I turn the TV up louder because now my mom is yelling on the phone to Chase about the bill she just received. She sounds as if she is in a war but the slamming of the phone lets me know she didn’t win. I was just out this morning with her and seen that her eyes were glued to a new pair of Burberry shoes. She persuaded herself that she needed them like the other millions of pairs she has jammed in her closet and fou...
It doesn’t matter if our friends are similar or different to us,
because that is what make friends to be friends.
English has two contradictory sayings that can apply to friendship: “Birds of a feather flock together” and “Opposite attracts”. Some people believe that they can only be friends to those who are similar to them. However, others consider that they can find their soul mate in a person who is totally different from them. How can this be possible? Let’s analyse these two sayings whi...

Actually, it’s not too difficult for me. ...
- street children:unfinished
A street child is a young person, under the age of fifteen, who lives and
sleeps in the streets, whose family ties are broken and who can\'t or won\'t return home. Street children live in the streets without their families. Each child has to learn how to survive alone, since no adult takes responsibility of them. Often they are very young and completely ignored by their families. These children don\'t like to be called as "street children". They live, or rather struggle to survive, they are u...

Gender Role Reversals Among Black Men and Women
In this paper I would like to explore the role reversals among Black men and women. There have been few studies about Black men and women and their gender roles in relation to each other. The standards of gender roles, and how they play a part in relationships and marriages, had always been based on the White middle and upper class. White men and women have always been the status quo symbol. Black men have not had the opportunity to have a ...

The Duggars-Children Hoarders
Families are the life-blood of humankind’s sustainability. Before World War II, many households in the United States were an extended family or multigenerational. These units consisted of parents, their offspring, the grandparents, aunts and uncles. The beginning of suburbia in the 1950s gave rise to a progressive shift to nuclear families made up of the mother, father and children. Not unlike previous generations, the trend now is swinging back to the extende...
- HEALTH SYSTEM
People sometimes can be sick. This is a thing which comes from the rules of mankind and the "health" is one of the most important things for everyone. When a person is sick, he will necessarily try to get treatment for his illnesses. Even though, there are some difficulties to get treatment in the past, nowadays we have too many opportunities. One of them -actually the most important one- is "technology". Especially, the technology provides hospitals with new equipment for health industry.
