Carbon Seldom has a single discovery in chemistry had such a impact on the thinking of so many fields of human endeavor. Seldom has a single discovery generated such wide public interest. From Taylor, 1987 The radiocarbon dating process was developed by physicist Willard F. Libby (please see photo) in 1948 with the help of two scientists, Dr. E.C. Anderson and Dr. James R. Arnold. Libby was born on December 17, 1908 in Grand Valley, Colorado. He taught at the University of California-Berkeley

Discrimination
Discrimination The struggle for social and economic equality of Black people in America has been long and slow. It is sometimes amazing that any progress has been made in the racial equality arena at all; every tentative step forward seems to be diluted by losses elsewhere. For every Stacey Koons that is convicted, there seems to be a Texaco executive waiting to send Blacks back to the past. Throughout the struggle for equal rights, there have been courageous Black leaders at the forefront of

A Realist\'s Look at Our Nation\'s Founding To say that the Founding Fathers ...were impelled by class motives... is a statement that is purely speculative. To say that we know what motivated these men to write the Constitution is totally false. We do not know whether their reasons for drafting the document were personal, moral or political. All we do know is that, through their actions, the most influential document of our country\'s history was created. The politics of the Constitutional Con

Handling Stress # This essay is about handling the stress of University studies. We will be looking into many ideas and different peopleąs views on how to handle stress. I will also be giving my own opinions on how I think stress can be controlled or relieved. The first thing we must do is ask ourselves one very important question, łwhat is stress˛? WHAT IS STRESS? According to an Australian born physician, Hans Selye (1979), stress is the nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon

Economic Reasons for American Independence Eleven years before America had declared it\'s independence there was 1,450,000 white and 400,000 Negro subjects of the crown. The colonies extended from the Atlantic to the Appalachian barrier. The life in these thirteen colonies was primarily rural, the economy based on agriculture, most were descended from the English, and politics were only the concern of land owners. Throughout these prosperous colonies, only a small portion of the population were
Today's Prisons
Today's Prisons
Today\'s Prisons Prisons, society’s nightmare. Prisons today (and throughout history) are not doing the job that they are intended to do. When someone is incarcerated they are sent to prison to be rehabilitated. The basic premise is to make them sit, isolated to think about their wrong doing, the ultimate time-out. In some cases it actually works, but in most it doesn’t. All that it does is build anger and resentment towards the system. That causes them to want to get back at the system, thus re
Virtu and Fortuna
Virtu and Fortuna
Virtu and Fortuna Under close scrutiny, The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli is seen to be a mind-baffling construct of many levels of meaning, and, many might say, enigmatically so. It is hard to determine where Machiavelli is writing in earnest and where in sarcasm or self-condemnation. As John Plamenatz says, the perverse Machiavelli likes to make himself out worse than he is. He likes at times to shock his contemporaries... No doubt he succeeds. The important message here, though, is that the

Genetic Engineering
Genetic Engineering Genetic engineering is the process of scientifically changing the body. You can change the body by increasing reproduction, cloning, and engineering genes. The church is totally against genetic engineering for the reason that God made all of us different, for a reason. Also, people can be cured when genes are removed and new ones are added. Finally, there are quite a few animals used such as mice and goats. For example, two goats were genetically engineered to breed better mi

The media, more than anything else in today’s world, shapes public perception. Unfortunately, most of what we see, hear, or read is about the chaotic condition of planet earth. Sure, there is plenty of chaos to report on, but by bombarding the public with one horrific report after another, the media acts like a giant amplifier of pain and misery. In many peo

This act establishes the play's dramatic tone, the witches' prophecy of Macbeth's ambition—and present the main characters and their relationships.
