Censorship by definition is the prohibiting of words, images or ideas that are "offensive" to others. I feel that the laws governing film censorship should be more versatile. The teenagers of today are becoming more mature and adult-like at an earlier age. They are taught about the dangers of sex as well as drugs in Enrichment or in Personal and Social Education (P.S.E) and know more about certain subjects than adults today would have known when they were younger. I feel therefore it is ridiculous not to allow them to see films containing sex, drugs and violence on TV or at the cinema, until they are 18. In my opinion teenagers today are clearly mature enough to see these films at the age of 16, which is when they are able to finish their secondary education. At this stage they will have been taught everything they need to know. My main argument is that I feel that the laws on the classification of films are outdated. I believe that the 18 certificate and the 15 certificate should be abolished and replaced by a 16 certificate. This means that they will be able to see the films that they are (in my opinion) mature enough to see. My main argument is that I feel the laws surrounding film classification are outdated.

On November 10, 2001 the world ultimately granted China membership into coveted trade organization, the WTO. Not since Deng Xiaoping's economic reforms of 1978 has China made such a giant leap toward the creation of a market economy. The World Trade Organization (WTO) finally opened its door on Saturday to China, the world's most populous ?C and one of the most robust ?C economy, sending a positive signal to the world economy loitering on the brink of a full-blown recession?(Xinhua, Financial Times) With the completion this fifteen year negotiation, China will now be forced to abide by international trade regulations so as to completely open its doors with ten years. WTO membership will provide countless economic benefits to China's burgeoning economy but the initial adjust period will certainly cause massive unemployment and possible political unrest. With economists projecting that if current growth rates continue the Chinese economy will surpass Japan, China is on the brink of dominating the Asian economy. Although there are many circumstances that may derail this progress, the Chinese now have the tools necessary to develop the powerhouse economists have been citing for the past decade. China's entry into the WTO was particularly slow (fifteen years of negotiating) for a variety of disparities; from trade barriers to individual market reforms. During negotiations the American delegation was particularly stringent on removing China's tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade. For instance, so as to protect China's infant car industry, the government established a one hundred percent import duty on all foreign automobiles. Non-tariff barriers such as quotas and licensing also made business difficult for foreign companies. To purchase foreign appliances Chinese citizens were often forced to purchase a license to have the unit installed. These anti-competitive devices needed to be abolished so as to comply with the spirit of fair competition...

Creative self expression is, above all things, an art; it allows a person to translate intangible feelings and emotions - the essence of their being—to something the world can see and, at best, understand. For me, expressing my creativity is executed in an array of behaviors, including singing and the arts, but most predominately, through writing. My greatest love will always be the manipulation of the written word. As a 9-year old-child, I would often sit wide-eyed in the hallway with my girlfriend Leila during those precious increments of “free time”, penning elaborate short stories of Barbies, witches, and laughable relatives, our curious minds filled to the brim with elan and youthful enthusiasm. Writing was an outlet, a release - some otherworldly place that I was welcomed into; a place far transcending the mediocrity and unevenness of a seemingly prosaic life. As a young teenager, I discovered the unbelievable relief that came with writing poetry. When my boyfriend, Alex, relentlessly broke my heart, I turned not to my parents, or deviant behavior, or even to tears, but rather, to the comfort and solace of my Ticonderoga #2 and crisp white sheets of fluttery heaven. It indeed was quite a prolific period, and looking back on it now, the ordeal itself seemed so inconsequential. But I know intrinsically that without the hours of scrawling raw, overly sentimental lyrics, my broken heart may never have mended. Freshman English was an artistic category unto itself. On countless occasions we were to write poems, stories, essays, responses. The most memorable of assignments were the adaptation of the George Ella Lyon “I am from” poem and the essay on the Aeniad, where we had to assume the role of one of the characters. Both works were the recipients of meritorious praise, but more importantly, personal growth. The way...

Difference, whether it is racial, sexual, or economic is an issue with which everyone must cope, one way or another. Society as a majority constantly discriminates, and this theory, "Only the strong can cope with difference', suggests that only those who are considered 'strong' will reject this attitude of discrimination. First of all, any theory, which classifies people as either weak or strong, is problematic, as such a simplification of something as complex as the human condition is easily challenged on its own. Consequently, the concept that solely people who are 'strong' have the ability to fight intolerance is flawed. There are so many valid, though conflicting viewpoints on this theory it is difficult to produce a clear-cut conclusion. In reality, we are all essentially discriminatory, if not in one way, then another. So is it merely a person's strength that causes them to retaliate against this bigotry, both within themselves and in society? Though, whether they are strong or weak, is it not a person's individual circumstances and consequent values that decide how they respond to the majorities prejudice? Both these concepts are explored in three texts, "Mississippi Burning"a film directed by Alan Parker, "To kill a Mockingbird", a novel written by Harper Lee and "I Have a Dream", an address by Martin Luther King. In the novel, "To kill a Mockingbird", Scout Finch, a young girl growing up in a prejudiced, 1940s America said; "Atticus had used every tool available to free men to save Tom Robinson, but in the secret courts of men's hearts Atticus had no case. Tom was a dead man the moment Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed." Although her community was one of racist and ignorant people, Scout was taught by her father to be unprejudiced in her attitude to racial difference. Like...

Freshman year of high school it dawned on me. “What I am going to do with my life? What exactly am I going to do to change the word, make a difference, to revolutionize?” The first answer that came to my mind was music, an overwhelming passion for the arts to be blunt. Music and theater have been a part of my life since, well, as long as I can remember. Through music I discovered a whole new way to view the world. I realized that everything has a song or a dance and very special few people could make others view the world through a song and I want to be one to make others hear that song. Some have asked “Don’t you want to do something meaningful with your life?” Music is an entertainment, a therapy, and educational. To me, what could be more meaningful than spreading the joy of music and the arts to others. Every show I have seen, whether dance, or theater, has inspired me to change. Change a part of my life or change a part of my community. At a young age I the Broadway drama Mornings At Seven, and I was reminded of the importance of family and the idea of loving unconditionally. After walking out of the theater I wondered to myself, “Wow, if this production inspired me, imagine how it could have touched the other 599 people in the audience.” It was at that moment when I realized that this is what I need to do for the rest of my life. Touch lives through art. Ever since that dawning moment I have been hard at work at achieving my goals. From vocal training to drama classes I have worked extremely hard to achieving my goal of becoming a performance artist....

Describe your career aspirations and why you have decided to enter Laurier's MBA program at this time. Upon graduating from university with a degree in mathematics, I embarked upon a career in consulting. I continued my education by enrolling in the Association of Investment Management of Research’s Chartered Financial Analyst program and successfully passed the first of three exams: Level I. While preparing and studying for this exam, I was concurrently gaining some exposure to the Financial Accounting division within my company, Hewitt Associates, and realized that my strength was in finance. I quickly became passionate about the subject and with much introspection, I realized that my true interests lay in the path of finance and accounting. Having a mathematical background, I have always been engaged with numbers and I believe that finance, coupled with accounting, would be an excellent outlet for my creative abilities. One might ask, “But why would you need an MBA?” My response would be that without the education and specialization that comes with a Laurier MBA-CMA, it would be quite difficult to enter my role of choice: Financial Accountant Analyst at Hewitt, which requires a CMA designation and prefers an MBA degree. Furthermore, the leading companies, like Hewitt and Ernst and Young, typically require an MBA and/or a CMA degree for managerial positions like Financial Planning & Analysis manager. Without the specialized financial accounting and management skills that would come with an MBA-CMA, I believe that it would take a long time to make my career move. My research of the school (from the Canadian Business’s most recent survey of Canadian MBA programs and What’s in a MBA? The Complete Guide to MBA and Executive MBA Programs in Canada by Rebecca Carpenter) has indicated that Laurier graduates speak highly of the specialized and integrated nature of the...

We all view each other in different ways. Some are positive, while some are negative. That all depends on our personalities, and what we are looking for in a person. Maybe you expect someone to be or act a certain way, but they are the exact opposite. Over the weekend, I talked to my parents, and asked them how they view me. They gave me two responses: as a daughter, and as a person. Those two are completely different subjects. As their daughter, they are required to look out for me and to help me throughout the way. However, they realize that I increasing independence. I am not still a child, but not yet an adult. Also, compared to my eight year old brother, my part in the family holds more responsibility. As a person, they understand that I have my own mind and I will make my own decisions whether they are right or wrong. I will learn from the consequences no matter what the decision may be. When I put my mind to it, I can succeed. This means that I am very capable of doing whatever I want to with my future. They trust me in making a decision that makes me happy, as well as being good for me. I also talked to a lot of my friends this weekend and asked them the same question. They first said that I am definitely a friend in need. When they are depressed or angry about something, I am able to cheer them up very quickly by being funny, and by giving them good advice. They also say that I am very nice; not only to them, but also to other people as well. Talking to everybody about this made me wonder about how I view myself. I view myself in...

I love college. I really do, I’m not kidding. I think learning from other people is the most amazing thing. I love the environment and the satisfaction of getting a good grade after I’ve spent a lot of time studying and preparing. I love everything from failing test to knowledge breakthroughs (you know those moments where you get a wave of clarity?). But I didn’t always feel this passionate about school. There was actually a point in my life that I actually despised school and thought it was only formed as a penalty. We all as humans have to crawl before we walk. It takes going through academic experiences before college to realize it’s importance in personal and professional growth. I started school when I was 4 because my birthday falls in October, and as far as I can remember I really hated school. It was wonderful to be home all day playing, watching TV and then one day, out of no where my mom wakes me up and leaves me at a big building that I have never seen before with a bunch of kids that want me to share my toys. I thought that was terrible. How could anyone want to share their toys? Despite my problem with sharing in general I made it ok through elementary. Junior High School was sort of the same. I made good enough grades to get me through High School but never put any real effort and I never understood the point of it. Then I entered college. At first I was a bit apprehensive; so far I hadn’t held a good opinion about school so I thought, “This is really going to be hard”. My first two of weeks were terrible. I had a hard time adjusting. The work I was being...

For most people, with differing religious backgrounds and beliefs, the words “homosexual” and “Christian” do not mesh. The church body as a whole does not recognize homosexuality as being consistent with Scripture, and leaders within the church provide extensive evidence as to why they have come to this conclusion. The Bible is used as their main source for refuting the gay lifestyle, and many Christians would argue that homosexuality is aiding the breakdown of the family structure in our society. While the evidence against homosexuality seems biblically based and compelling at first glance, a closer examination of the biblical context shows something somewhat different. People must also take into account the recent advances in scientific research regarding homosexuality, and question whether or not sexual orientation is truly a choice. Fortunately, many denominations are taking an active stand in support of gay and lesbian rights. There are churches headed by gay ministers; and in some places, same-sex unions are being provided as well. Perhaps in time, more churches will follow their example. In order to model what Jesus taught in the Bible, we are called to love God above all, but also to love our neighbors as well. Whether or not an agreement concerning the sinfulness and morality of homosexuality is made, there must be a recognition that we all share a common humanity and can learn and grow by building each other up – no matter what sex, nationality, age, religion, or sexual orientation a person might be. he major arguments against homosexuality are based on verses found within the Bible. Each of these verses should be reviewed and discussed. The story of the destruction of Sodom in Genesis 19:1-25 is referred to frequently. God had sent two angels to the city of Sodom and they took shelter in the home...

John Stubbs' essay is an examination of the defense which he believes Henry and Catherine use to protect themselves from the discovery of their insignificance and "powerlessness...in a world indifferent to their well being..." He asserts that "role-playing" by the two main characters, and several others in the book, is a way to escape the realization of human mortality which is unveiled by war. Stubbs thinks that Hemingway utilized role-playing as a way to "explore the strengths and weaknesses of his two characters." Stubbs says that by placing Henry's ordered life in opposition to Catherine's topsy-turvy one, and then letting each one assume a role which will bring them closer together, Hemingway shows the pair's inability to accept "the hard, gratuitous quality of life." Stubbs begins by showing other examples, notably in In Our Time and The Sun Also Rises, in which Hemingway's characters revert to role-playing in order to escape or retreat from their lives. The ability to create characters who play roles, he says, either to "maintain self-esteem" or to escape, is one Hemingway exploits extraordinarily well in A Farewell to Arms and therefore it "is his richest and most successful handling of human beings trying to come to terms with their vulnerability." As far as Stubbs is concerned, Hemingway is quite blatant in letting us know that role-playing is what is occurring. He tells that the role-playing begins during Henry and Catherine's third encounter, when Catherine directly dictates what is spoken by Henry. After this meeting the two become increasingly comfortable with their roles and easily adopt them whenever the other is nearby. This is apparent also in that they can only successfully play their roles when they are in private and any disturbance causes the "game" to be disrupted. The intrusion of the outside world in any...

In Life there are lessons to be learned and the sooner they’re learned the better you understand yourself. That’s what life is about, the challenge of decrypting your character. Without knowing yourself you are destined to hell on earth, at the same time knowing yourself doesn’t guarantee you heaven on earth. Acceptance of your character and the life you will have to lead, based on this character, will certainly be painful, but it is essential, essential because this “acceptance of character” will prevent you from dreaming of that which you may never have. I now know who I am. Based on who I am, I know the life I will have to lead and, of course, the dreams I may not dream. Who am I…? I am Me. I am very faint-learned, I am extreme, I am intense, and I am excessively passionate about everything. I love completely or I don’t love at all, I am a perfectionist, I am a control-freak, I believe in reality, I fear failure and ultimately I am me. What life do I have to live? Well, based on me being faint-learned, extreme, intense and excessively passionate, I cannot be a lover or have one. I get too committed, I eventually love “too much” and do everything in my power to make her happy and I get jealous of those who do a better job without trying so hard. This jealousy leads to heartbreak; nobody wants, needs or even deserves a lover possessed by the green-eyed monster. Being faint-learned the heartbreak kills me, it is the equivalent of burying a loved one, it’s agonizing. I am destined to be a single-forever, work-centered individual with no option but to find consolation in my work and in the height of my production levels within the vast and ever-expanding corporate...

“I love you, because in my thousand and one nights of dreams, I never once dreamed of you.” As most typical love poems start, all of them start with similes of live and what one would do for the satisfaction for love. Luis Lorens Torres wrote this poem about love because he must have been in love. This poem is very descriptive and would be difficult to make up if Torres was not in love. “I looked down paths that traveled from afar, but if it was never you I expected.” Looking back at Luis Lorens Torres life, he sees that nothing that he has ever done would come close to his feeling when he met you. “ Love me that way, flying over everything./ and , like the bird on its branch, land in my arms only to rest, then fly off again.” This poem like others where the poet describes his love to animals and compares the animal in a difficult situation where love would be the only way out for the bird. “Be not like the romantic ones who, in love, set me on fire. When you climb up my mansion, enter so lightly, that as you enter the dog of my heart will not bark?” Torres, in a sense alters himself from all the other love poems by being in a different animal situation. He portrays himself as an animal and says that the animal is within himself and it would be up to his lover to unleash the “beast” in him....

As I walked down the hall of a huge building holding my fathers hand. I heard screams coming from all directions. "Dr. Lewis to room 114! Dr. Lewis to room 114!" I heard over the loud speaker. My father told me that we were going to see my new sister and that I was going to be a big brother. I was only 7 but I knew that this was going to be an important day that would change my life forever. I got to room 114 eager to see my new sister. As I walked in, I screamed "mom" and started to run to her. Before I could get to her, my dad called me over and told me he wanted to talk to me outside. We left the room and he told me that my mom was very tired and that loud noise would disturb the baby. He explained to me that I was now a big brother with a lot of responsibilities. I would now have to share my room, toys, and parents' attention with her. I was upset and started to cry. My dad calmed me down a little and we went back into the room. As we entered the room, I smiled at my mother, she smiled back at me and signaled for me to come to her. I walked over and I saw the smallest, cutest little thing that I had ever seen. It was my baby sister. I looked at her and she looked at me with her big eyes. My mom asked me if I wanted to hold her. As I held her in my arms, she just looked at me and I looked at her. I knew this was going to be a day like that I would remember forever. I looked...

Most people have a favorite place to escape. We need somewhere we can go to relax and regroup our thoughts. Maybe it is somewhere special from our childhood, and it is no longer possible to go there in the physical realm. This being the case, we can always go back mentally. The memories are so vivid and we imagine ourselves there. Whenever visiting home in England, the trip always includes a revisit to a very special place. By using the five senses to describe the setting, it is possible to experience this journey together. Let us escape to tranquillity in the small town of Olney, Buckinghamshire, England. Olney is the small town where our family grew up; it has been a community for almost 2000 years now. We start our journey by walking up the old high street. The aged bluish black brick paths are so familiar; we avoid stepping on the few loose bricks that send cold rainwater shooting up one's legs. The street lined with a vast blend of Elizabethan, Victorian, and Georgian houses all attached, several of them now house small shops. An irresistible aroma of warm fresh bread wafts across the street from Revitt's bakery. The High Street remains the center of all the hustle and bustle of traffic passing through, and voices of local people in deep conversation. The smell from the fish and chip shop overwhelms the air. We now arrive at the market square, framed by even larger houses, including that of the great poet and hymn writer William Cowper. Now the spire of the parish church is in view. The church clock strikes on the hour with the Westminster chimes. After we pass the church, we approach the old mill. The huge wrought iron gate swings open and we walk through. While walking...

Just as some background information, I am a very clumsy person, not withstanding this anecdote. One occurrence at the gym, after a good, full workout: lifting chest, biceps, triceps, back, and shoulders, I felt like finishing a good workout with a hard run. I jogged to the locker room and grabbed my CD player. Returning to the treadmill area I tried to find an open treadmill because most were already in use. I picked one of the usual, basic treadmills and put my CD player on the small shelf area the treadmill had and started it and began to run. At first, I had a good, constant pace, but soon after a minute I decided to pick up the tempo. Now I had been jogging for about four good minutes and had a comfortable run going, when suddenly my CD player fell from the shelf. Unfortunately, when my CD player fell off the little shelf area my first intuition was to stop and pick it up. This wouldn't have been a bad idea had I not been on a treadmill. The instant I stopped to pick up my CD player, my legs were taken quickly out from underneath me. This caused me to land on my face with a tremendous thud followed by me finally gliding off the treadmill, as its belt kept moving. I got up from the ground, physically fine, but with a massively hurt pride. So I did the only thing I could do to make it look natural and not like an accident: picked up my CD player, stood up and wiped my knees off, stopped the treadmill, placed the CD player back on the rack area, and started running again. A good intuition should have said, "You're on a treadmill, you can't stop running to...

SPEECH OUTLINE Specific Goal: To persuade the audience to be pro-abortion. Intro: I will start by telling the audience to imagine that they are a woman who was raped, or who was carrying a child that you knew wouldn’t live to see his first birthday. Or perhaps the contraceptive you were using didn’t work. In any case, you know that you are not prepared or willing to support a child. Now imagine that there are laws that aren’t protecting you, but do protect your fertilized egg. Being pro-choice supports the rights of women and to let her make a decision about abortion, instead of having someone make the decision for her. Thesis: To look at the benefits of giving every woman the right to choose whether or not to have an abortion. Body: I. Being pro-choice allows a pregnant woman options under extenuating circumstances. a. If a woman, or a teenage girl is raped, she will have the right to terminate a pregnancy that was forced upon her. b. If a doctor can determine that the unborn child will die soon after birth, or will be severely disabled and will life its life in a limited state, the mother can spare her unborn child. c. If the mother is terminally ill (AIDS) or if delivering a child means the death of the mother, then the mother has the right to save her own life. (By supporting pro-choice, you are helping to insure that, under extreme circumstances, the decision will be made by the woman herself, and not by lawmakers) II. Another reason to let the woman decide whether or not to abort is to save the child from extreme cases of psychological or physical abuse. a. If a woman accidentally becomes pregnant (unprotected sex, condom broke, etc), and she doesn’t want the child, it isn’t fair to have a child in...

Abortion has been recently brought back to our attention with all the hype that the subject is receiving from the media. Because of the good record keeping, we can tell that abortion has been around for many years. In long ago times, if the abuse that women received in her abdomen did not kill the unborn child, then a long, grueling ride on horse back would cause the death of the unborn fetus. Also, because of the shortage of food and water, tribes had to leave the area where they were staying. These long hours of riding horseback would cause the mother to have the unborn baby prematurely. The baby was either left for dead or killed by another tribe member. This would be very hard on the mother, and in most cases this type of birthing process would kill the mother. Many people feel that abortion is an act of murder because of there religious beliefs or because of their morals and values. In the Bible it states, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you."-Jeremiah 1:5. Pro-life supporters have often based there argument on this particular scripture. Unborn life is seen to be equal that of born life. The Jewish faith generally teaches against not only abortion, but also infanticide, which is defined as the act of killing an infant. One exception might be that the continuation of a pregnancy poses a risk to the life of the mother. There are many different options besides abortion. One option the mother has is to put the child up for adoption. This would benefit the parents of the child, who might not be able to take care of the baby for whatever reason they might have. Also this allows the child an opportunity to grow up in an environment that they might...

My childhood was a very happy one. I was given the attention a child was supposed to have been given when been raised. My mother gave birth to me on March 22, 1984 in Mount Sinai hospital. As a toddler I bonded really well with my fellow peers. I used all the different types of play growing up such as physical play, sensorimotor play and more. I was especially prone to rough and tumble play, which was horsing around, beating my friend, and get myself, beat down. That's the type of play where my mom would get mad because I would get myself dirty and scrape myself rolling around in grass. As I grew up I started keeping to myself when I turned around 8 years old. I guess a person would say that at 2 was very individualistic time for me. In ways I never really grew out of being like that. I still sometimes do things myself to get different tasks done. During my physical development, which was from around from six to twelve, girls were constantly beating up the boys. Girls where more like the enemy and were not really that attractive as boy playing on monkey bars. Though I did a get kick out of them always chasing my friends and me around the schoolyard when I called them names. It like kind of symbolized a crush on a particular girl in school. During this period also life was a lot simpler. When I was in elementary school a kid has a lot less many responsibilities to worry about. There was no bills or car payments due every month. Instead there were baseball cards, pogs, and physical Ed. We would run around a field to see who was the fastest kid in class. I was really...

Between sun yellow walls adorned with pictures of friends and plaques of past glories and beneath a wooden shelf aging with chipped paint and slanting volumes of classics, a desk occupies space. Once neatly organized, this desk has been transformed into a collage of brightly colored college catalogues. Piles of pamphlets, booklets, and brochures cover the surface of the desktop and overlay the floor. When I close my eyes, this is the picture that scans through my brain as I reflect back on the college application process that took place in my room last fall. After sorting through the various academic paraphernalia, sending out applications, and making a final decision, I have embarked on a new journey in which this essay marks the first part. Like any seasoned traveler, I have departed from home with a destination in mind. Upon arriving at college, I determined that I would spend my four years in a definite pursuit of new experiences and new ideas. By joining clubs, playing sports, contributing to intellectual discussions, and listening to lectures, I feel that I can collect a wide variety of assets. First, through involvement, I will be able to learn more about myself. Through interacting with others and exchanging ideas, I will be able to recognize my strengths and weaknesses. Furthermore, I will have the knowledge to formulate informed opinions on certain matters and hopefully acquire the confidence to share my thoughts. The second reason for my desire to become involved is in order to contribute to the college community. By being involved in various activities, I will be able to see the college from many perspectives. If I have any concerns about the way the college is working or if I have any ideas for new projects or clubs, I will therefore have both...

Accept me for who I am.I have found that there are people that truly accept us for who we are in our heart. I am a person that does not have good self esteem, I would like to believe that I do but truly when I am honest with myself, I don't. I don't know how to hold my head up high and believe in who I am. I know I am a good person at heart. I know that I make some bad decisions in life that lead me on the wrong path and that I have to be the one that find my way back to the right path. I have to stop settelling for the first woman that come way and think that I can mold them to the woman I want them to be.
