The St. Catharines Standard
I choose to do my essay on the St. Catharines Standard. The Standard is
the St.Catharines and Thorold area newspaper. It provides us with the local
news, advertising and it keeps us in touch with what is happening all over the
world. It was first owned and runned by the Burgoyne family and was printed in
St. Catharines but, was sold last year to Southam Inc. and has started to be
printed in Hamilton. Southam Inc. also owns other papers such as The Hamilton
Spectator,The Ottawa Citizen and The Kingston Wig. Here are some questions that
I have made up about The Standard and I have found the answers for them.
1. How important is The Standard to our economy?
The Standard is pretty important to our economy. It provides the
peoples of St.Catharines and Hamillton with jobs. It also let\'s the local
businesses advertise their business to the people and attracts businesses to St.
Catharines. Which brings money to the city. And finally, I provides St.
Catharines with the daily news about the city and all over the world.
2. What is the source and type of the paper and why is it used?
The Standard gets their paper from wherever they can get it the cheapest.
It is Recycled Newsprint. Recycled newsprint is paper that has been previously
used paper that has been shredded, de-inked and then turned into pulp so it can
make paper again. This type of paper is used because its economical,
lightweight, recyclable and is available world wide.
3. What is the process of making the St. Catharines Standard?
The First step in making the newspaper is in the advertising department.
The workers in the advertising dept. sell space in the paper to local businesses
for ads. This pays for the paper to be made. Then the ads are produced and are
redied for the paper a day before it has to be made. After the ad space is sold
the paper is sent up to the editorial room so they can look at the space not
occupied by ads and decide what stories the need to fill up the paper. Now to
make the paper! The pages are assembled and the ads and stories are cut and
pasted on to boards. After that a negative is shot of the board. Then they
take the negative and make a copy of it on a metal plate. They take the plate
and mount it on the press. The pressman begin to roll the press, adjust the
inks, check the colour and registration prints. The paper is then sent to the
mail room and counted & labeled for its destination. They add the flyer and
bundle them up. Then the finished paper is sent to St. Cathaines. The
Circulation Department then sells the paper through stores, newspaper boxes and
carriers. And that is how the paper is made!

We can explore some of the motivations and circumstances which lead men to rape. We have learned that some men rape out of anger and a need to overpower, dominate, and humiliate. We can also look at some of the historical attitudes from which today\'s beliefs and stereotypes have evolved. However, we must look beyond bo

No title you name itno title you name it It has been said that all people are not equal in their intelligence or character so should it be just that all people have the same rights. There are many people who say yes but this paper is going to explain why everyone should have different rights. Not only is this paper going to discuss why but is already in effect (in some cases). The mentally ill should have different rights because their caretakers abuse them. Why? They did something the caretakers thought was wrong.

Politcal Allegory Term Paper Of 1984- By OrwellPolitcal Allegory Term Paper Of 1984- By Orwell The Political allegory of George Orwell\'s 1984 In 1984, by George Orwell, the reader sees a primary theme of political allegory and satire. Orwell is presenting the world of 1984 as a satiric statement of what might come to pass, though of course its exact form could never be predicted, if the world did not become aware of the terrible problems facing it, not in 1984, but here and now. Orwell wrote the novel not as a prediction, but as a warning.
