Women Vs. Men In The Work Force
Women vs. Men in the Work Force In Mrs. Burrows? seventh grade English class, I wrote a paper entitled Women vs. Men in the Work Force. I researched for weeks and weeks to get all of the information I could on pay differences, percentages of working women and what jobs they were doing. In 1988, my paper focused on sexual discrimination and the wage difference. For example, in 1998, ?women received 63% of the pay men received for the same job.? I remember finding that out and asking my dad why th

Multicultural Education In America
Multicultural Education in America America has long been called The Melting Pot due to the fact that it is made up of a varied mix of races, cultures, and ethnicities. As more and more immigrants come to America searching for a better life, the population naturally becomes more diverse. This has, in turn, spun a great debate over multiculturalism. Some of the issues under fire are who is benefiting from the education, and how to present the material in a way so as to offend the least amount of

Violance on television Cause Aggressive Behavior An 18-year-old boy locks himself in his room, mesmerized for hours by the corpse-filled video game Doom, while shock-rocker Marilyn Manson screams obscenities from the stereo. Shelved nearby are a video collection, including the graphically violent film Natural Born Killers, and a diary, replicating the unrestrained expressions of hate and death, published on the boy's personal website. Should this boy's media preferences be cause for alarm? The q

The HOPE Bill
The HOPE Bill In the year 2024, the world has grown to increase its size to 24 billion people worldwide. The increase in the population has caused the destruction of most farmland in the world, causing it to look underwater for a supply of food. Private enterprises are currently farming and selling food that comes from underwater regions of the world. However, a vast majority of the world is still not being fed. On a percentage basis, though, we have fewer people unemployed than in 1996. However

Title of Paper : King Lear Grade Received on Report : 96 King Lear Historians en masse have determined that Shakespeare was most definitely not the first one to come up with the general plot lines contained in King Lear. Though the play revolves mainly around the conflict between the King and his daughters, there is a definite and distinct sub-plot dealing with the plight and tragedy of Gloucester as well. The play (both stories really) has origins in many different sixteenth century works, wit

My Love for Reading Then and Now My love for reading began when I was in the fourth grade. My teacher was Mrs. Schroeder and I vividly remember her reading to the class ?Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing? by Judy Blume. The title alone caught my attention right away. I thought it was cool to have ?fourth grade? in the title of the book seeing that I was in fourth grade as well. I had always looked forward to the late afternoon readings from Mrs. Schroeder. She read this book with such emphasis and

Also this report will discuss some warning signs of teen suicide. It is important to take the subject of suicide seriously.

Affirmative action today, is considered to be one of the most controversial dilemma facing our equal status of individual rights.
