In the twentieth century, particularly the past two decades, the political power to influence others resides in information: the more information you have and the more you know how to use it, the more potential influence you have.

Effects Of Deforestation
Effects of Deforestation The subject of deforestation and the effects that it has on the environment have been heavily debated for a long time; particularly over the last few years.

Jim Jones The mass suicides, that took place under the influence of Reverend Jim Jones, can be explained from a sociological perspective. By looking at how the group dynamics played into the outcome one gets a better idea of the whys? of the massacre. The sociological explanation is but one way to explain this horrific event.

Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison, the singer of the legendary band The Doors, is perhaps the most unappreciated and misunderstood artist of his time. In 1969, after his last concert in Miami, Florida the media turned their back on him labeling him as primitive and Florida?s state law system accused him of public exposure and misbehavior, but the real perspective about Jim Morrison is that he had one of those gifts that few people have of making you feel the most important person in the world. Jim Morrison had an en

There are many instances where minorities are not given the chance to prosper in American society. The same system that promises all men equal opportunity has turned its back in the face of minorities. We plan to examine some segments of this system, namely the media and the criminal justice system, exposing injustices burdening minorities in America. The media, in particular broadcasting news, has catered to stereotypes of non-whites by over-representing minorities as the assailants in violent
