In 1976, the US Senate ordered a fresh inquiry into the assassination of John F Kennedy, who was murdered in 1963 during a motorcade in Dallas, Texas.

Sikh Dharma
Sikh Dharma Anonymous Sikh Dharma, the youngest of the world religions, is barely five hundred years old. Its founder, Guru Nanak, was born in 1469. Guru Nanak spread a simple message of Ek Ong Kar: we are all one, created by the One Creator of all Creation. This was at a time when India was being torn apart by castes, sectarianism, religious factions, and fanaticism. He aligned with no religion, and respected all religions. He expressed the reality that there is one God and many paths, and th

The Truman Show
The Truman Show
The Truman Show ?The Truman Show? is a profoundly disturbing movie. On the surface, it deals with the worn out issue of the intermingling of life and the media. Examples for such incestuous relationships abound: Ronald Reagan, the cinematic president was also a presidential movie star. In another movie (?The Philadelphia Experiment?) a defrosted Rip Van Winkle exclaims upon seeing Reagan on television (40 years after his forced hibernation started): ?I know this guy, he used to play Cowboys in t

Rave Culture: The Number One Example of Social Deviance Anonymous Introduction What is a rave? This is a fundamental question that, in a way, I will attempt to answer in this paper, but I will never do it. Raving is a highly subjective experience. One person's best rave is another person's worst. Any attempt to analyze rave culture must recognize the highly personal factor of the experience. It is because of this fact that I start off my attempt to analyze rave culture with a series of quotes on

Kevin Raybur's run Unknown 1968, Six o'clock in the morning The Olympic village was quiet in its lazy sleep, but Kevin Reybur was already awake, and ready to run. The easy 8-mile morning workout was only a part of the blonde-haired phenomenon's training schedule. Later in the afternoon he would suffer through fifteen miles of pace-work and intervals on the golf cart paths and quiet streets of the peaceful suburbs of Mexico City. Despite his short legs and strong upper body -unusual characteristi
Marxs Theory Of Money
Marxs Theory Of Money
Marx's Theory Of Money Duncan K. Foley The Theory of Money and the Theory of Value The most important point to emerge from Marx's theory of money is the idea that money is a form of value. The difficulty with this idea is that we are more familiar with money itself than with value in other forms. But value does appear in forms other than money. For example, the balance sheet of a capitalist firm estimates the value of goods in process and of fixed capital which has not yet been depreciated, as w
The Zipper
The Zipper
The zipper Unknown The zipper is a very common fastener used to secure all kinds of things, especially clothing. But the zipper wasn't always around. Before the zipper was invented, buttons were used in fastening clothes, and so were hooks and eyes that had to be fastened manually. When the zipper first came out, it was somewhat of an oddity; it wasn't widely accepted. But slowly, more and more people started noticing its convenient applications, and soon it could be seen everywhere. The zipper

The Scarlet Letter - Analysis Lisa Yang Adultery, betrayal, promiscuity, deception, and conspiracy, all of which would make an excellent coming attraction on the Hollywood scene and probably a rather erotic book. Add Puritan ideals and writing styles, making it long, drawn out, sleep inducing, tedious, dim-witted, and the end result is The Scarlet Letter. Despite all these unfavorable factors it is considered a classic and was a statement of the era (Letter 1). The Scarlet Letter is pervaded wit

You get in your car, drive for miles, then get out and walk the remainder of the way to a waterfall. Civilization has cleared and marked a pathway for you and the many thousands like you that have also come to enjoy these named landmarks. Rarely do you get to enjoy the natural beauty of one by just stepping out into your own backyard. Behind my house, barely noticeable, is a

My Paradise
My Paradise Visiting my backyard, especially on a sultry day, can be my favorite way to spend the day. Behind my house, barely noticeable, is a small pathway through the trees to a pond with a waterfall. Everyday I walk down the three concrete steps to the path below. The path is narrow but well worn. Any shrubbery that would have grown has been trampled down and all that remains is a very narrow path, overhung with branches from trees that are by its side. There is no wind on the path just the

Miller I Conflict in Eudora Welty's A Worn Path was not apparent at the very beginning. What was a poor, elderly sick black woman doing traveling through the forest, by herself with no help during the dead of winter? The reason became clear towards the conclusion of the story as the action revealed that the problem was obtaining the necessary medicine for her grandson. When this situation became obvious, another question came to mind. What kind of society did this woman live in that she had to

2 Darl Jewel and I come up from the field, following the path in single file. Although I am fifteen feet ahead of him, anyone watching us from the cottonhouse can see Jewel\'s frayed and broken straw hat a full head above my own. The path runs straight as a plumb-line, worn smooth by feet and baked brick-hard by July, between the green rows of laid-by cotton, to the cottonhouse in the center of the field, where it turns and circles the cottonhouse at four soft right angles and goes on across the

My husband and I got married at eight in the morning. It was winter, freezing, the trees encased in ice and a few lone blackbirds balancing on telephone wires. We were in our early 30s, considered ourselves hip and cynical, the types who decried the institution of marriage even as we sought its status. During our wedding brunch we put out a big suggestion box and asked people to slip us advice on how to avoid divorce; we thought it was a funny, clear-eyed, grounded sort of thing to do, although

Native Americans in the 20th Century In 1983 a Ponca Indian named Roger Buffalohead made the following statement: When the twentieth century began most Americans who thought about Indians at all did in the past tense. Like a photograph the image of Indian culture was frozen in time. Yet, for Indians, the twentieth century was to become a time of recovering. Instead of a photograph, Indian life and culture was like a motion picture and the story line moved on, transcending the ending which Americ

The great advantage of having an ancestry like that of a mongrel dog is I have so many ancestral homes to go home to. UNDER THE SPELL A travel tale by Danny O'brien We caught the ferry from Le Havre, France to Ireland, land of my ancestors. Every since I was a wee lad, my mind has been used as a canvas by every Irishman who has been displaced from the Emerald Isle. A picture of quaintness bordering upon myth. Cute I thought it would be, but never as much as the tourist hype I had read. I donn

Indian Boarding School E.S. Compressed emotions, that is the explanation a teacher once gave to the ongoing question, What is poetry? He said it was someone's deepest emotions, as if you were reading them right out of that person's mind, which in that case would not consist of any words at all. If someone tells you a story, it is usually like a shell. Rarely are all of the deepest and most personal emotions revealed effectively. A poem of that story would be like the inside of the shell. It
