Literature

#93638

Throughout the ages, many discoveries were made and things evolved, whether it is technology or life styles. Literature is among one of those things and its writing styles, themes, and subject matter have changed several times within the last four centuries. A primary example of literature or poetry is the sonnet and its style and meaning have evolved within the three great literary movements. The Elizabethan, Metaphysical, and Romantic eras all had prominent authors who followed the conventions particular to their time period and their writing styles is clearly reflected in their sonnets. Each literary period focused on different ideas, but not only this, the structure of the sonnet took on a different variation as well.

Worker Union

Per.1

1/16/03

First of all, let me introduce myself and my partner. We are the Presidents of a workers union and want to be treated fairly and with dignity. Instead of being treated like pieces of equipment, we should be valued and appreciated since it is we who do all of the dirty work. We are also required to submit urine drug tests on the risk of losing our jobs and can be punished by our political views. We should be able to express our thoughts and feeling towards political views and have the choice of submitting urine drug tests. It is prejudiced how our fellow workers have to obey things that we dont want to do. If we dont want to do it, then we should be able to refuse to obey, but then we will lose our jobs.

Winter Poem

Per.2

Winter

This is the best time of year.

Every kid should have to see.

Stockings lined up over here.

Presents are under the tree.

During this great holiday,

Santa will come to the town.

Riding past here on his sleigh,

With all nine reindeers downtown.

With snow falling on the ground,

I am sleeping with no sound,

Even though people are abound.

Little I know its Christmas.

Inside, the food is ample.

Who dare take a big sample?

Looking outside, I see snow.

What If The Moon Didnt Exist?

What If The Moon Didnt Exist???

The hypothetical what if? questions we ask ourselves are so profound that there are endless possibilities. This discussion will be asking what the world would be like if its astronomical environment were different. Considering the nebular hypothesis eventually producing our solar system, a process termed the butterfly effect could have occurred. Even the most microscopic change would cause a chain reaction of various events leading to conditions conclusively differing from today.

We will begin our journey with the origin of the moon and the effects on Earth, were it to be nonexistent.

What Happened?

What Happened?

Look into the eyes of a child and you will see innocence and modesty,

A pure spirit venturing out into life without a care in the world.

They are oblivious to the future destined upon them

While frolicking through challenges presented to them.

It is the calm before the storm and the progression of time

Only transforms them with the taste of maturity.

All the jealousy, hate, vanity, conceit, and inhumanity

Coalesce as temptations for this young, conscientious being.

Look into the eyes of a teenager and you will see blackness,

West Point

When visiting West Point during the field trip, I learned numerous interesting and fascinating facts about the history and the creation of the military academy. Starting in 1778, George Washington started West Point and it is the oldest army post, always having soldiers in residence there since then. On July 4, 1802, the military academy was opened with ten cadets, students at the military college, and five teachers. Now, there are about 4,000 cadets, 700 of those women. Rooms have to be very neat and there are two to three cadets per room. Some buildings on the campus include a bowling center, offices, a library, and a post office. Dennis Mickey, who was challenged by Navy in a football game, and graduated at West Point, has a stadium named after him that seats 40,000 people. Along the campus grounds, hundreds of monuments and statues were built in remembrance of deaths in battle and famous generals. There is a Chapel that can seat 1,500 people and was built in 1910 with military gothic architecture made of only granite that is 200 feet long, 56 feet high, and 72 feet wide. There are thousands of pieces of stained glass along the walls of it made by the Willet Company. Also, there is the 3rd largest organ console and the largest church pipe organ in the world with over 22,000 pipes, 32 feet at the largest and the length of a pencil at the smallest is inside. Another interesting thing is that there is a row reserved for the current superintendent in the front row with a silver plate and their name on it. In contrast, demerits are given out as a result of bad deeds and one would have to walk in the courtyard with a rifle back and forth, thinking about what they did wrong.

Water-The Essential Molecule

Water-The Essential Molecule

Many of us take water for granted.  We think of water as an inexhaustible resource forever available for our use. We should think again.  There are many steps to bring water to our home faucet, but there are also many ways water can be wasted despite the great effort put into getting running water in our houses. There is a concept we must all recognize: water conservation – the management, protection, and wise use of water resources.

Water Conservation

Water Conservation

I. Introduction

a. Topic Sentence

i. Many people in the U.S. take water for granted and think of it as a thing that was always there for them.

b. Well, they should think again since in the old times, people had to get water from a well and had a limited supply. Water wasnt available through a faucet. Its not like that anymore, yet people tend to dont care about water conservation. Doesnt that word sound familiar? It means the management, protection, and wise used of water resources. There are hundreds of uses for water including drinking, cooking, cleaning, power, and farming. In other words, its essential. Some things that people do as a habit can result in less water for the community as well as themselves.
