"Mike" Influence? Why is it that the people who influence us most influence us in ways that are not easily quantified? Through her work with abused children, my mother has shown me the heroism of selfless dedication to a worthy cause. By being an upstanding individual, my playwriting teacher in middle school acted as an inspiring male role model at a time when I needed one most. By being approachable and interesting, my World History teacher in my freshman year of high school opened my eyes to the connections between a society's culture and its history and broadened my view of cultures and the world. While these influences mean much to me and have contributed greatly to my development, they came too easily to mind. The fact that I could sit down and write a list of how these people influenced me suggests that the influence did not alter me in any profound way. These people are all my elders, and perhaps I feel distanced from them. The person whose influence shook me to the deepest level is a person whose influence is nearly impossible to describe. Mike, the best friend I've ever had, changed me, and I changed him at one of the most crucial times in our lives: the seventh grade. We developed our personalities, our senses of humor, and our love for girls at the same time and in the same manner. It would cheapen his influence to quantify it; I am what I am because of him; I cannot say that about anybody else. Mike came to my school in the seventh grade, and we immediately clicked. Before he came, I didn't feel like an outcast by any means, as I had my friends that I had known since first grade. However, until Mike, I never had anyone my...

To: President of the United States of America; George W. Bush From: Senior Political Advisor; Fady F. Mirhom Re: Potential Threat Posed by Iran and Responses to Such a Threat Date: May 17th, 2005 Mr. President Concerning the task that was assigned by your honor to me on May 6th 2005, regarding the preparation of a policy memorandum focusing on the Iranian nuclear program achievements; I am gladly presenting my advisements and spotting the Iranian policy toward its nuclear programs, comparing our and to the world's policies. The final battle for the revolution was in late 1978, when The Shah of Iran took the decision of stepping down. By that time, the Shah understood that he could not use the militarily force to control the irritated Islamic civilian rebellion in the country (1). After a year of public demonstrations against him, the Shah of Iran left Tehran on January 16, 1979, for an "extended vacation" (2). On February 1, 1979 Khomeini; the opposition leader, became the head of the State. (2) The Iranian Revolution was the biggest defeat for U.S. imperialism in the years after the Vietnam War. The revolution brought down one of the U.S.'s strongest ally; the Shah of Iran. Also it permanently changed the political topography in the Middle East. (3) Before the Revolution, the United States had used Iran and its Shah among with Saudi Arabia, as "surrogate states" (4) to ensure the safe flow of oil. The Shah as someone who had been installed in power by a CIA-planned coup d'état in 1953- and his government were American's allies protecting U.S. interests in the region, with good relation with Israel in the time of the Arab-Israeli clashes and conflicts (5). The revolution that caused the downfall of the Shah, and replaced him with a stubborn, fundamentalist-Islamic government, not only betrayed these policies, but also...

I acquired a poster not to long ago, the portrait is of Bob Marley. The image is of freedom. This sense of freedom can be, and is, achieved through his music, powered by his music, and inspired by his music as it relates to the social injustices in early white imperialism. An illusion of the creation of a human life is being meshed together in this distinct piece of work. It is a portrait of an artist fighting solely for freedom using the power of music as his weapon. The tiny pictures that make up this portrait are in both color and black and white and together show inspiring details from the life of Bob Marley. Masses of colorful records, which represent the lyrics intended to motivate listeners everywhere, make up the darkness of Marley's dreadlocks. His dreadlocks are a mark of freedom and represent the Lion of Judah. They are considered the symbol of Rastafarian manhood. Marley's face and eyes are somewhat lighter in color, and are made up of random samplings from experiences in his own life. The most prominent image that arises when gazing at the portrait is his hand raised gently to his lips in his routine to smoke "ganja" in a religious practice. This herb is an Indian strain of hemp that causes hallucinations and spiritual visions. The Rastafarians believe that in this action they become one with Jah, the creator. The lyrics of Bob Marley's songs are a part of the entire Rastafarian culture that centers on what is godlike and holy, around justice, compassion, and resistance. Its message is having one love and allowing for the unification of humanity. It is through the lyrics that Marley acts as a political activist, expressing his feelings for the stolen Africans forced to come to and fight...

3.Her husband the relater she preferred Before the Angel, and of him to ask Chose rather; he, she knew, would intermix Grateful digressions, and solve high dispute With conjugal caresses: from his lip Not words alone pleased her. O! when meet now Such pairs, in love and mutual honour joined? (John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book VIII) Throughout literary history, from the biblical to the postmodern there is a recurrent ideology that continually appears, that of marriage. Whether the ideology of marriage is used as a benchmark for "normality", or as a representation of the self, there is no denying that along with death and religion, marriage remains prevalent as imperative to many texts, both past and present. Some, like John Milton, argue that love and marriage do not go hand in hand, as common human intuition leads us to believe. Milton believed that, "The greatest loneliness is the loneliness of the heart in marriage", the ideology of marriage is central to Milton's most famous work "Paradise Lost", which is in essence, the story of a marriage gone wrong. Therefore, if Milton is to be believed, it can be argued that the ideology of marriage in literature can be traced back (in Christian mythology at least) to the dawning of time. In the past marriage was as important to life as it is today. Religion tried to keep a hold on it, the establishment tried to control it and the consensus proclaimed it to be the most vital key to social order. The continual thread of the importance of marriage through the passage of time is highlighted in the texts that this essay is concerned with. "Mrs Dalloway" by Virginia Woolf, which is set shortly after the first world war and "Open Secrets" by Alice Munro, in which the short stories span across time from the colonial to the modern....

BIBLIOGRAPHY.................................................................19 INTRODUCTION What do we know about the small particles of matters? A lot of people will say that the smallest particle in the space is "Atom", but is it true? No. The modern quantum particle theory says that there are smaller particles called quarks, leptons, photons and gravitons. Quarks are the particles, which forms protons and neutrons in the atom. They are the smallest particles known which forms nucleus of atoms. There are six quarks and two of them makes protons and neutrons. Leptons are the negative charged particles. There are three leptons and three neutrino of these three leptons. The most common lepton is electron and its neutrino, electron neutrino. Before having details about these two particles, we must know a little about the big bang and the beginning of universe. 2. HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE Formation of the modern universe was occured step by step and I am going to present it by subscripts. First of all we don't know anything about how the big bang occured but we can make some predictions about how it was occured after the big bang. The most popular theory is below. 10-43 seconds after the Big Bang Quantum Gravity Electromagnetic force, weak and strong nuclear forces are staying as a whole. (Big Union) Universe starts becoming larger from an origin which has endless energy. t< 10-43s, 1032K (1019GeV, 10-34m) : gravity 'freezes' 10 -35 seconds after the Big Bang Big Union Swelling stops getting larger continues. Big union is getting broken and the effects of strong nuclear force and electroweak force become visible. t= 10-35s, 1027K (1016GeV, 10-32 m) : Universe's length...

How did you first become interested in Reed and why do you think Reed might be an appropriate place, both socially and academically, to continue your education? I could tell you a heartfelt, sentimental, poignant story about first seeing a Reed College refrigerator magnet (my uncle got it at a reunion, I think) and feeling first deep emotions stirring somewhere inside my spleen. Or I could meticulously paraphrase the numerous brochures and articles about Reed that I have perused. Yet another option would be to rent a small airplane and skywrite, "I want to go to Reed," in colorful pollutants. And I probably would resort to one of these strategies, had I not some real incentives to attend Reed College. They are based on what I have learned from The Princeton Review, general knowledge, conversations I have overheard, and other miscellaneous tidbits of information sent to me by friends and relatives. First of all, I must express my admiration to the people who have decided that education is, after all, the purpose and responsibility of a college and established the precedence of academics over sports at Reed college. I'd like to attend a school where I, a debater, will not be viewed as a second-class citizen by football players. Secondly, the notoriety of great educational standards has reached me all the way in Vancouver (OK, so it is only across the river) and enticed, attracted, and urged me to apply to Reed. Rumors of the "side effects" of avalanches of homework and sleepless nights have crept here, too, but I'm up to the challenge. After two years of juggling high school, college, and extracurricular activities, receiving assignments only at one place just might be paradise. Lastly, Reed's geographical location is just like pretty wrapping paper and a big red bow on a present that's already great (...

Summer Camp Entrepreneur The first wedding that I planned was in no way a traditional wedding. Ten eager little girls decorated the printed invitations with sequins, buttons, and markers. The same energetic hands prepared the wedding feast, consisting of bagged lunches, blintz soufflé, and of course a layer cake. On the big day I looked around with excitement. Again, I noticed something odd about this wedding. All the participants and guests appeared about four feet high. The "groom" had long hair pinned up with brown lines on her face (was that supposed to be a beard?) The wedding location, a back yard with a swing set and a wading pool, seemed far from romantic. This wedding however was not supposed to be one of those types of weddings. As I pressed the "PLAY" button on the tape recorder I knew that ten 4-6-year-old girls cared deeply about this wedding. Despite the absence of a reason for celebration, I pulled all the girls into the circle and we started dancing and clapping to the music. The energy that went into the preparation on previous days could finally be appreciated. My campers and I not only celebrated the accomplishment of the mock wedding, we celebrated the fun and excitement we experienced for the first three weeks in Camp Glitter Girls. I had begun preparing for Camp Glitter Girls over four months before by budgeting, sending out fliers, confirming registration and finally making sure that every camper would have the time of her life. As I danced, I celebrated the times I almost lost my patience but didn't, the times that I planned activities late into the night because I knew that only an organized schedule would ensure the success of my camp. The lessons I had learned from previous summer camps contributed greatly to...

When I wake up to the ear-splitting sound of my alarm clock, and blindly search for the snooze button, a sudden thought dawns: "What am I doing?" The time is 5:30 AM; all is dark and hushed. My weary body feels completely drained of energy. While straining to open my eyes, still warm and snug in my comfortable bed, I am overcome with a feeling of lethargy. "Perhaps I should call in sick." Despite all my musing, and my bed's magnetic pull, I still manage to rise each morning at this ungodly hour to join the cross-country running team in rigorous training. Cross-country running, a sport that requires the fusing of body and mind, strives to maximize your physical ability by testing your mental tenacity. Everyday represents a new struggle to beat yesterday's maximum output, an issue of mind over matter. I have known the agony of this conflict since I joined the newly established cross-country team. As convincing as my morning doubts are, I do not heed them. Through pains and sprains and through adverse weather and unfavorable conditions, I run because I made up my mind three years ago to succeed. With amenities such as cars and buses, I have no pragmatic reason to use my feet, especially if I lack a destination. I do not run to the gym to acquire a stylish figure, for my slender frame does not require it. And this grueling run differs from a relaxing jog to a coffee shop. I am pushing myself constantly to run faster and farther, for my team as well as for personal glory. Somehow with tireless effort and unflagging commitment, I run through the sleeping streets of my neighborhood with the awareness that I am steadily reaching my goal-maintaining the discipline that cross-country demands. In my mind I see...
