America - Building the Border Wall

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." – Emma Lazarus. The Statue of Liberty poem is signaling everyone who wants to come to the United States. The U.S. Presidency is debating on whether to build border walls and immigration restrictions. We have to figure out a balance for this "freedom' that our Statue of Liberty poem expresses with the need to regulate the numbers of those who are allowed to immigrate to our country each year. The impact of building border walls and immigration restrictions on the ideal of "freedom" expressed in the Statue of liberty would be good and bad. It would most definitely have its pros and cons in this case. But if I were to choose whether to build a wall or not and have immigration restrictions I would have to say no. The building of the border walls and having immigration restrictions has its advantages. The wall would keep out terrorists who are wanting to come to the United States a


We are More Like Sisters

I can clearly remember the day my best friend, Lannah Tamborello, moved to Chicago. It feels as if it were just yesterday, the grief we both felt. We still smiled all day that day, just to keep each other from crying. But as soon as I got into my car, and drove away from her house, I broke down. That was the moment it all became so surreal. Lannah and I figured out there was a slight possibility she would be moving because of a new opening for a job her dad was entitled to. We didn't think anything of it at the time, we just went on about our day as we usually did. That was until the end of the school year. We both became extremely anxious, waiting for her dad's interview feedback. Then summer came, and I immediately left for Missouri, and we still hadn't heard anything. Then Lannah left for Dallas-- still nothing, and I bega


The Importance of Earth Science

People have many views on how important earth science is in comparison to other branches of knowledge. To determine if earth science is a supreme form of knowledge we must first determine what knowledge is. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary knowledge is "the fact or condition of knowing something with familiarity gained through experience or association" it also defines it as the "understanding of a science, art, or technique." Therefore, in order for something to be considered as knowledge it must be true to the person that has that knowledge and be able to speak about it with easiness when asked about it. We also have to determine what earth science is, the Oxford dictionary defines it as "the branch of science dealing with physical constitution of the earth and its atmosphere." Some of the elements earth science deals with are geology, oceanography, and meteorology. Earth science is important for many reasons. Scientists use the knowledge of


Finding Peace with Centering Prayer

Centering prayer is something many or all should go to. As a college student, going to events like these seem really boring and time-consuming. You look at a centering prayer and think, "Man this is going to be the longest 30 minutes of my life." All that changed once I actually went. Dr. Quantz came in and had all these candles with a bowl and a bell type of thing. She made us pick out a paper from the bowl and they all had a different word. These words had no meaning whatsoever, which made me think why are we getting them? Then she explained Dr. Quantz told us that those papers had no meaning to us and that we wouldn't know what they meant. She said it was to relax our mind from any other thought. During the time of prayer, we would only think about our word assigned. Truthfully I can't remember what my word was, but it was a weird one. She then told us to lay our hands flat, whether it be on the arms of th


China's Economic Rise and Fall

The continuous rise of China has undoubtedly been one of the great dramas in the beginning of the twenty- first century. The extraordinary economic growth in China and their active diplomacy have already transformed East Asia. What we have yet to see is if China's continued rise will increase their power and influence in the decades to come. China's presence on the world stage has drastically increased and has left many researches perplexed about the consequences of its rise. There exists a plethora of studies, debating whether China's current path is one that is headed to the top, or whether China is a the precipice of its development with looming declines in the near future, plagued by weak institutional reforms. There are many features that characterize Chinas future direction, this paper will analyze those features and predictions that are more likely to be correct and those predictions that are more likely to be wrong. Among the predications that are more likely to be wrong, is


The Perfect Cell Phone: Android or iPhone?

INTRODUCTION Android is better than iPhone for all of your cell phone needs. It is more user-friendly, more app friendly, easier to repair, and just all around better. The iPhone is better only with the camera which is better quality and is actually used by some photographer. iPhone also has better privacy settings and more software updates. Both have many qualities in common such as a wide variety of apps and accessories. The storage is similar on both other than the fact that Android's storage can be expanded with a microSD card. 81.5% of smartphones globally are Androids. SIMILARITIES Android and iPhone have a few similarities. They both have a large amount of base internal storage. They both have a wide variety of applications, both paid and free. They both have good quality cameras. Android and iPhone both have a wide variety of cases with an endless supply of designs and a wide variety of accessories. They have similar apps with different names. They both have multitasking capa


There is More to This Life

Life is filled with lessons that can make or break us. As life goes on, these lessons show up when they are least expected, but often have much to teach us. At the age of 17, I made a tragic mistake that changed my outlook on life. It's extremely difficult to forgive myself for my actions, but I am more than grateful that I made a negative situation, a positive one. When I'm in a depressed state I embrace it, because in the end I know I will become stronger and a lesson learned! During the summer of 2014, I was dating a girl by the name of Amber. At the time Amber and I were dating for eight months. Amber was a beautiful young lady, her skin glistened golden under the warming light of the sun. She had dirty blond hair, and crystal blue eyes that were as clear as Cancun waters. That summer I had gone on vacation to North Carolina with my family. When down there I was keeping in contact with a friend by the name of Kathy. Kathy had always had feelings towards me, and I liked that, it made me feel coo


Dangerous Ideas - Steven Pinker

"Did Native Americans engage in genocide and despoil the landscape? Would society be better off if heroin and cocaine were legalized? Would Africa have a better chance of rising out of poverty if it hosted more polluting industries or accepted Europe's nuclear waste? Would lives be saved if we instituted a free market in organs for transplantation?" (Pinker 530). Steven Pinker, a scholar, philosopher, and professor at Harvard University starts an article titled "In Defense of Dangerous Ideas" with these and many other questions and ideas most people would consider controversial, offensive, or shocking. Pinker describes these questions as "dangerous ideas." According to Pinker, "dangerous ideas" are "Statements of fact or policy that are defended with evidence and argument by serious scientists and thinkers but which are felt to challenge the collective decency of age" (530). From Pinker's perspective, these are ideas society is quick t


Comedy at the Edge: How Stand-Up in the 1970s Changed America

"Comedy at the Edge: How Stand-Up in the 1970s Changed America," is a book by Richard Zoglin and he uses it to show how a wave of artistic innovation grew and how it continues to influence American comedy even during this 21st century. The 1970s in America was a period of stand-up comedy which he describes as a process of rupture, experimentation, and reintegration into mainstream society. His main aim is to show how stand-up comedy had been absorbed into mass culture. His book offers some fun surprises as well as insights into the stand-up period which is considered to be a very important period but which most people overlook or take for granted given its ability to influence the comic sensibilities in the United States and beyond. The main chapters of Zoglin's book serve to chronicle the competition between new comedy clubs that sprang during the 1970s America. During this time there was a small group of brilliant and iconoclastic comedians who travelled through the country


Historical Newspaper Notes - Chicago, Illinois

Chicago, Illinois Chicago was having issues with crime and violence in the 1920's and 1930's. The growth of the population weakened the ability of Chicago's governmental system to operate effectively. Crime in the city was growing because kids were exposed to it at young ages so it was influenced on them. Gangsters and hustlers were advancing in the city, making it hard to stop the crime and enforce the law. People were getting into this because it was an easy way to make money and a living that way. If people weren't hustling they were working a low paid job, most likely being a truck driver. Most lived this way when the Great Depression was happening because it was taking a lot out of everyone and money was hard to get. Though the government was supposed to uphold the law and justice, it wasn't happening, causing Chicago to be a major city of crime. Then, the Chicago government tried to illegalize alcohol, which worked for awhile but after a few years the consumption rose again and t


Silence - The Absence of Noise

Some might consider silence to be a lack of communication; however, silence can be an extremely powerful form of communication. What cannot be expressed in speech can be expressed through body language. Silence can be defined as not having any noise at all. Silence can help portray certain things that may be odd. For example, in "When We Arrive", silence was used to help the workers see that there was a problem with the truck they were traveling in. In some ways, silence can also be beneficial to someone's health such as reducing stress. Being silent and keeping your thoughts to yourself can help reduce of having problems with people around you in the future. However, silence is something many people ty to avoid because it makes them feel lonely or depressed. As defined by Dictionary.com, silence is the absence of any sound or noise; stillness. As stated by ethmonline.com, silence is "muteness, state of being silent," from Old French silence "state of being silent; absence


Hydrocarbons and Organic Chemistry

I. INTRODUCTION Hydrocarbons are compounds that contain only carbon and hydrogen atoms. Methane (CH4) and ethane (C2H6) are one of the major examples of hydrocarbons. They also belong to a subgroup of compounds called alkanes. ALKANES are hydrocarbons that do not have multiple bonds between carbon atoms, and we can indicate this in the family name and names for specific compounds by the –ane ending. Other hydrocarbons may contain double or triple bonds between their carbon atoms. ALKENES contain at least one carbon-carbon double bond, and this is indicated in the family name and names for specific compounds by an –ene ending. ALKYNES contain at least one carbon-carbon triple bond, and this is indicated in the family name and names for specific compounds by a –yne ending. AROMATIC compounds contain a special type of ring, the most common example of which is a benzene ring. There is no special ending for the general family of aromatic compounds. Hydrocarbons are the si


Urban Planning for Economic Development

Abstract Rural town planning is a key aspect of enhancing the economic partnership among the rural towns, the big urban cities and the country as a whole. The ideas that the rural town cannot promote and decide the economic status of the country have been able to dominate the areas for long. The opening of the infrastructure in these rural towns is enhanced by the rural town planning teams, and this helps to improve the economic developments. Many people tend to ignore the contribution of the rural town as part of the economic development and view the town as a burden. Nevertheless, the contribution, which is being attained due to the proper rural town planning, is great and a great participation to the economy of the concerned countries. The presence of the rural town planning enhances the building of the strengths of the industry that helps to improve the economic factors of the industry. The planning helps maintain the relation among different stakeholders (Organization for Economic


Children's Play Activity Analysis

While doing my ten-hour observations at the Children's Development Research Center, I had the opportunity to create an activity for the students to participate in and it allowed them to engage in developmentally appropriate and stimulating experiences. The students I had ranged from the ages 3-4. It was hard to come up with something for children so young to participate in especially when there were so many children who performed at different levels. So I decided to just have them participate in the game "Simon Says". However, I had the children take turns in being "Simon" and instead of saying "Simon Says" the child would replace Simon with their name. I thought about all the different types of play that was covered by Hughes and wanted to incorporate at least two of them into the game. So I chose to use social play and imaginative play. During this game the children were able to communicate with one another, follow rules and work together collaboratively. When one child would call out a rule such as "Bradley says hug someone" the children would immediately find someone close by to hug. They each knew that they had to hug someone an


Me: Then and Now

10-year-old me was a sassy dramatic young girl who wanted to be the winner of everything. I was the president of student council. I ruled with the boys at recess on the the kickball team. I even was dating the cutest boy in all of fourth grade, Nick. Our class had sort of a bad rep heading into fourth grade, and this rep followed us on into the rest of our school career. We would get banned from games on the playground. Students would have SLAMS, more commonly known as homework detentions. We would hardly ever get a good note from a sub or specials teacher. The chaos in our grade was real. Third grade would be when I realized I loved sports. My love for basketball became really strong in the fourth grade. This is when my parents put me on a competitive team and we traveled all over playing all sorts of really hard teams. We actually hardly won any


Freedom in Equality and Education

The concept of freedom is rather complex, multi-faceted, and can at times feel rather ambiguous. At the same time, freedom is a concept that remains highly debated and treasured to people of all walks of life around the globe. Participating in the Dimensions of Freedom course this semester gave me a deeper understanding of the different dynamics that freedom holds, and why it has been upheld as revered and important concept throughout time itself. At face value, many people would agree that freedom is the right to act in whatever way one chooses, regardless of the consequences (Wesel, 2009). However, after reading and taking to heart Maya Angelou's "Graduation", Plato's "Allegory of the Cave", Daniel Quinn's "Ishmael", and Parker J. Palmer's "The Woodcarver", I have come to realize that freedom holds a deeper meaning to me as an individual. Freedom encompasses happiness and achieving one's dreams while remaining intellectually uninhibited so as


Macbeth and the Downfall of Lady Macbeth

Throughout the first four acts of Shakespeare's Macbeth, Lady Macbeth is portrayed as a ruthless character willing to do anything to obtain power. Although she occasionally shows some signs of wavering, she seems to remain mentally stable and satisfied with her husband's actions, thus serving as a foil to a guilt-ridden Macbeth. However, in Act 5, Lady Macbeth is suddenly overcome with guilt over Macbeth's behavior whereas Macbeth becomes consumed by his desperate chase for power. This development in Lady Macbeth may seem sudden, but, in fact, it has been building slowly since Macbeth made the decision to kill Banquo. As Macbeth's character goes through a dramatic transformation, Lady Macbeth also changes, foiling his character. Ultimately, she is overcome by regret not only for the murders committed by Macbeth, but also by the fact that she caused Macbeth's drastic character change that cannot be undone. This regret eventually leads to her suicide. When Macbeth first consults the w


Characteristics of Gender Socialization

The society in which we live in plays an enormous role in shaping the different attitudes and behavior of all those who are a part of it. These differences are reflected most strongly perhaps in the development of certain gender-related social roles and behavior traits. Within every society, gender is a socially constructed term, and the development of gender roles often begins as early as infancy.  Gender is socially constructed to make clear distinctions between the two sexes, and to define their characteristics through gender roles. Culture shapes much of what people consider masculine or feminine (Williams, 1983). In most societies, the "feminine" is usually characterized by delicacy, sensitivity, innocence, compassion, and care for others. The "masculine," however, is characterized by strength, aggressiveness, independence, intelligence, and hard work. A clear representation of this is demonstrated in an experiment conducted by Condry and Condry, in which couples were asked to d


The Theme of Heartbreak in Romeo and Juliet

"There are plenty ways to die, but only love can kill and keep you alive to feel it." This quote portrays the theme of heartbreak and throughout Romeo and Juliet, heartbreak is well-illustrated. The story of Romeo and Juliet has tons of heartbreak moments. Without the theme of heartbreak the play would have been like a fairytale with a happy ending. Heartbreak is showed drastically through the story with the ups and downs Romeo and Juliet face through their journey of love.Throughout the story, William Shakespeare presents the theme of heartbreak in through dramatic irony and dialogue. According to dictionary.com dramatic irony is inherent in speeches or a situation of a drama and is understood by the audience, but not grasped by the characters in the play. Throughout the story of Romeo and Juliet dramatic irony is used many times. For instance, in the story, Romeo marr


A Look at Poverty in America

Imagine the feeling of having a whole family to take care of, but not enough money to provide for them. That is an issue that a lot of Americans deal with today. More and more people are beginning to fall below the poverty line. There are many different variables that go into why people fall into poverty, and there are a lot of things that can be done to make a change. Things like the way we talk about this issue in our culture, how our values shape the messages about this issue, and how socialization processes influence how we understand this issue. Poverty has been an issue in America for a while now, but it does not seem like it. For the most part, it seems as if the poor in America's media are invisible. That may be because nobody wants to see or hear about it, we'd much rather watch reality TV shows about superficial housewives. Anytime we do hear about the poor on TV or in the news, they are described as statistics, rather than as human beings. For example, look at this excerpt


Believing Hashem is Our One and Only Creator

The proof of the existence of G-d is based on the creation and ways of the world, specifically, the physical world we live in. The way to find closeness to G-d, which leads to never doubting Hashem, is by working on the duties of one's spiritual heart. Now, the point of this essay is not to convince non-believers that a G-d created the world. It is to show the people who already believe, to realize and appreciate how great the ways of Hashem are, and what the benefits for believing are, and hopefully to light a spark inside a doubters mind that may just lead them on the right path to Hashem, according to the Chavos Levavos, Duties of the heart. Nothing can make itself. That is a fact. So how come people believe that the world made itself? Some may say, "well atoms mushed together and created life" but how were those atoms created? Where did they come from? Same thing applies to G-d. If someone says they believe in the big bang theory but not in G-d, they sound like a comple


My Journey to Kutztown University

I approached my journey through observing Kutztown and seeing what is different then what I was used to at Moravian College. Definitely, a lot of different things stand out at Kutztown from what I noticed throughout my first few weeks of school. For example, the size difference was one of the major traits that I realized right away for why I was the lost the very first day of class. Which was expected so then from that point on I learned from my mistake and started to adjust to Kutztown. I knew I was going to have to adjust to my new home at some point so I figured the sooner the better. The best first choice I could have probably made for the whole semester. That choice has lead me on to piece my path step by step as time goes on here at Kutztown University. Basically, I am going with the flow and pacing myself at the same time so that nothing gets rushed so less mistakes happen. I can say that my approach is going off all my observing particular features that I notice differently


The Bravery of Caesar and Marc Antony

Alexander Hamilton once said, "There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism." In the ancient Roman times, bravery was a key personality trait to be well respected. Both political and military leaders were brave, and that is why they conquered much of Europe at that time. Two of the leaders who displayed bravery were Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. Gaius Julius Caesar was born 100 B.C. His father of the same name and his mother Aurelia Cotta were part of the Roman upper-class. He was a brilliant military general who conquered Gaul (modern day France) and invaded Britain a total of 2 times. He was not liked by many due to his controlling demeanor, but he was appreciated for his protection of Rome. He was married three times and was known to be involved with three mo


Office Space - Film Analysis

The film "Office Space" in based on a company called Initech, a cubicle-styled software development company. The premise of the movie is to show the typical unmotivated, unsatisfied American worker with a comedic, fictional twist. 1. The tagline of this film is "work sucks." Describe some of the workers' coping mechanisms and resistance strategies both inside and outside of the workplace (make sure to reference at least five). The tagline of this film is "work sucks". There is no message behind this to decode, it simply means that the main characters do not like their jobs. Therefore, many of the employees are lacking a job satisfaction, so they have no choice but to look for coping mechanisms. A coping mechanism is some sort of way that someone may relieve their internal and external stress. The films main character, Peter Gibbons, has several. Near the start of the film Peter is talking with some of his coworkers by the photocopier, they are discussing how they


Kanye West: Yeezy and Yeezus

Kanye Omari West has accrued a stunning twenty-one Grammy awards, and fifty-seven nominations throughout his career. He has created eight studio albums, with six of them going platinum, but the quality of his craft has been questioned after the release of his seventh album 'Yeezus'. Nowadays, he is considered more of a celebrity, rather than an artist, because of his staggering personality. Kanye West is an outstanding artist, but his preceding musical pieces are more influential because he strongly strived for the accomplishment to make a name for himself, his audio samples saw more success, and Mr. West's recognitions as an artist came from the albums prior to 'Yeezus'. A Grammy won in 2013, of the track 'No Church in the Wild' from his seventh album is the sole exception. The track won for the category of 'Best Rap/Sung Collaboration', however his competitor's singles barely made it to the billboard charts, it was an easy win for Yeezus. In a dark and cliched
