URBAN, MIDDLE-CLASS TEENAGERS, IN THE DECADE OF THE ‘DOT’. INTRODUCTION- Welcome to the decade of the dot. That tiny bit of Internet grammar whose ubiquity in e-mail addresses and web URLs so neatly captures the giddying impact of technology on our lives at the century’s launch. Ten years ago, the Internet was little more than a cyberspace wilderness traversed by nerds, while the Web was an obscure tool unknown to all but a handful of researchers. Today, the Internet is a more potent medium than

An exploration of why Hamlet delays the act of revenge Hamlet is a human being, and he is an emotional human being. He feels guilt, remorse and has responsibilities, yet at the same time he feels pride and a sense of duty. He is quick, in Act one, scene five to take on his role of avenger “Haste me to know’t, that I, with wings as swift As meditation or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge.” Hamlet is passionate about his role and swears to “wipe away all trivial fond records” and to so

Critical Essay Gambling, while it lowers taxes and creates jobs, it also causes addicts to lose money and therefore creates a higher crime rate. Back in the day gambling was very popular in North America, long before there was ever a United States. Playing cards and dice were brought over by both the British and the Dutch. By the end of the 17th century, just about every countryseat in colonial America had a lottery wheel. Cockfighting flourished throughout the countries, especially in the South

Tattooing En. 1301.203 10 August 2004 Tattooing is a very interesting work of art that is surrounded by controversy, because there are so many stereotypes, risks, and fashions that go along with it. Even though this art form has many risks involved, there are many people in this world who feel that they have to live life on the edge and they will do anything for a rush. Tattooing to some people fulfills this rush no matter the outcome they might see from it. Just to know that this form of art st

Ponds and Lakes
Ponds and Lakes A lake is a large body of fresh water. Lakes can range in size from small ponds to huge bodies of water such the Great Lakes in the U.S. Lakes and rivers are closely tied. Some lakes are the source for some rivers. Important rivers, most often, originate from lakes. Some rivers end in lakes. Since both rivers and lakes are freshwater and flow in and out of each other, they share similar charcteristics and many species reside in both habitats. LOCATION: Freshwater ecosystems inclu
Ducks
Ducks
Ducks When duck season is declared, hunters go to the wetlands and shoot down the ducks as they fly overhead. At the same time, us duck rescuers go out to the wetlands and pick up all the injured ducks. We do this, as an average of 50% of ducks that are shot at are not killed, but are only wounded. If we do not go into the wetlands, these ducks would be left behind by the duck shooters to slowly die as when a shooter fires his gun pellets spread and birds are often shot through their wings, eyes

A Brief History of the City of Salinas Small tribes of Native Americans first made their home here in the Salinas Valley many centuries before the first European explorers came to California to build a president in Monterey and missions in Carmel, Soledad, San Juan Bautista and the San Antonio Valley.

Monet
Monet IF MONET IS REGARDED AS THE IMPRESSIONIST par excellence, one must admit that both Degas and Renoir also have their own special qualities. Cézanne, too, merits individual study, although his development in relation to later art seems to set him somewhat apart from the Impressionist movement as a whole. However, when considered with reference to Monet\'s life and work, the concepts applied in interpreting Impressionist art - in particular, those of the impression, the stroke, the contrast o

A critical appreciation of Hamlet’s final soliloquy Hamlet’s final soliloquy comes just after he has spoken with the Captain, who has informed him that Fortinbras is set to fight for “a little patch of ground”, that is completely worthless except for the “name” that comes with it. All in an attempt to try and reclaim his father’s honour. As we parallel the two sons; Hamlet and Fortinbras, there is a clear contrast in the actions of revenge that they both take. This causes Hamlet to think about

None want to cause trouble. In fact they are happy just sitting there socializing. A knock at the door breaks their routine. It\'s a policeman, and the reason he is there is because these friends chose to break the law - they were smoking marijuana. These people are not alone. According to FBI statistics, a marijuana arre

JAPAN’S BOOM/BUST ECONOMY
JAPAN’S BOOM/BUST ECONOMY INTRODUCTION Today, Japan is faced with many economic challenges. Japan\'s economic woes ultimately lie with their population and land problems, import and export ratio, failing financial industry, falling stock market prices, and issues within their government. In fact, many of these challenging problems can be considered a chain reaction, an overflow from one area of their economy to the next. To fully understand their current economic condition, it is important to br

In 1810, the citizens of Knox County, Tennessee (current location of Knoxville) petitioned the U.S. Congress to build the waterway that would shorten the distance by more than 800 miles for trade with New Orleans, Mobile and other ports along the Gulf of Mexico.

The student would have to adapt or conform to be like the other students at the school. The student would probably view the students and see which ones fit there likes, wants and needs.

PEARL HARBOR - A SHORT HISTORY The Japanese attack on December 7, 1941 established a permanent if unwanted place in history for Pearl Harbor. Before the tragic events of that Sunday morning, Pearl Harbor was little known to the rest of the world.

In those early days, Pearl Harbor

Cities On every continent, cities and towns are located in specific places all over the continent. Rather than establishing cities in the middle of nowhere because they look good on the map, people build cities in places where they can function with everyday life and help the cities population expand. For these actions to happen as planned, you have to place a city where it will have good agriculture, industry, a fresh water source, transportation, communication, and repository for wastes. Many

If a person has a total lack of recreation there are chances of melancholy that can later on lead to death. Having recreation in our lives gives us a sense of happiness thatwe all need. The Romans were alike with the Greeks in a few ways. The Romans watched chariot races to entertain them just like the Greeks di

Almost any policy issue could serve to illustrate the significant themes, but environmental protection places them in particularly bold relief.

The Wild Life Recently, at yet another baby shower within my circle of friends, I began to notice a subtle change in our relationships. After all of my girlfriends arrived and were seated, I observed that we were divided into two distinctive groups. One group clustered, rather uncomfortably, around the couch. They discussed parties and current boyfriends, while cautiously nibbling on carrot sticks. Other topics included who was dating who, and who had changed since high school. This was clearly
