 Article Title :: Hello, I am Confucius
 
First in a series of mini bios!Hello, my name is Confucius. I was born in China in 51 BC. My father Heih, was governor of one of the areas in China. He was in his seventies when I was born and died when I was three. My mother was a beautiful woman, much younger than my father and it was she who taught me to work hard, live humbly, and serve my fellowman.From an early age I was taught that I was no better than any of the other children in the village. My father's status as governor was an honor he had earned, not mine, and I was made to work in the garden, tend the herds, and bring food and water.Our life was simple. The hard work helped develop my body to be strong. T  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Conserving Water, Saving Civilization and Washing Cars Too
 
Can we make a system at a modern carwash, which captures all runoff from the rain, washing of cars and even the drippings from the car while drying and then recycle and reuse it all? You know this is a decent question and there are systems being made in South Korea, which are supposedly totally closed loop systems. In other words once they are filled they never need to hook up to city water supplies.Once in a while the need to be cleaned out and recharged but for the most part are totally self-contained. Paula Chavis has said what if we recycle and reuse all the water. Well that would mean all the rainwater from storms on the property too right? Well can we do it?You know I   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Science in Gulliver's Travels, Part One
 
Jonathan Swift's view of science and scientists is explicitly portrayed in his novel, Gulliver's Travels. Swift, in satirizing science, asserts that much of their studies are essentially useless for mankind. To him, the goal of science should be to benefit man; the speculative sciences and many of the so-called utilitarian projects are a waste of time and energy. In Part III of Gulliver's Travels, Swift describes many projects undertaken by the scientists at the Academy of Lagado; many of these projects were "modelled on actual research carried out by members of the Royal Society" (Turner xx). Swift also endeavors to show how not using science for utilitarian purposes is, no  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Science in Gulliver's Travels, Part Two
 
While in Lagado, Gulliver investigates the grand Academy of Projectors and describes many of their current investigations, which seem pointless and useless for the benefit of mankind.The first project in Swift's satire is that of "extracting Sun-beams out of Cucumbers" which had been worked on for eight years at the Academy (Swift 171). The scientist working on this project stated the purpose of it as being "to supply the Governors Gardens with Sun-shine at a reasonable Rate" (Swift 171). Here Swift describes scientific studies that are undertaken to improve on something that has no necessity of being improved. In this case, it is ridiculous to try to improvise sunshine because the  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Quest for Self-Determination: Reminiscences of Two Minority Women, Part One
 
During their growing up years, children struggle to find their personal place in society. It is difficult for children to find their place when they are given numerous advantages, but when a child is oppressed by their parents or grandparents, males in their life, and the dominant culture, the road to achieving self-identity is fraught with enormous obstacles to overcome. Maya Angelou's I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings and Mary Crow Dog's Lakota Woman depict the two women's "triumph over formidable social obstacles and [their] struggle to achieve a sense of identity and self-acceptance" (Draper 1).Both women grew up in segregated societies: Mary Crow Dog on the Rosebud  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Quest for Self-Determination: Reminiscences of Two Minority Women, Part Two
 
By far the most severe oppression that the women faced comes from the dominant culture. This oppression is shown in numerous ways, such as degradation, exploitation, and murder. As a result, the women have an understandable fear and hatred of white people. Maya describes an errand into the white section of town like this: "We were explorers walking without weapons into man-eating animals' territory" (Angelou 25). Likewise, because of Mary's beatings by Catholic nuns at the Indian Boarding School, she "hated and mistrusted every white person on sight, because [she] met only one kind" (Crow Dog 34).One example of whites' degradation of minority peoples is the changing of their names.  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Anti-US Sentiments in World News; Lance Rants
 
You know I have been hearing of many anti-American type comments in the world news. Well if the rest of the world continually chastises us for our giving? Well stop giving, that is common sense. We are under no obligation to give money to the Palestinians who voted in Hamas, an international terrorist organization as their leadership.The Palestians need to be bused to their new homeland in Zimbabwe and they can become farmers there and work the land. No Jews will attack them there. And last time I checked there were lots of squatters there so Palestinians will fit in just fine.And I propose that Al Jazeera is an enemy of the US for purporting misinformation and inciting inte  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Very Talented
 
Ahhh. Travel. One of my favorite things about going away is meeting up with old—and new—friends and seeing how the other half of the world lives. And of how different spots in the world look! I am well aware that my own little place on top of this Connecticut ridge of ours would be unimaginable to much of the world, particularly if one were not familiar with the topography of New England…or with much of America for that matter. When I traveled to Florida last week for spring break, I felt somewhat out of my element; indeed, had it not been for the two years we spent living in Miami, I would have felt like I landed on another planet. Its juxtaposition to the northeast could not have   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Global Project to End All Wars
 
Believe it or not there is a global project to end all wars. Indeed, this is a rather interesting and noble calling, however it is obviously not been taken very seriously, as China and Russia sell high-tech weapons to Iran, Syria and the Palestinian authority now in control by Hamas. Many from academia stated the United States should stop starting wars and work with the United Nations and other friendly nations on 100 year project to in all human wars.I do not disagree that stopping all wars of the human species is a good idea. However, I would like to point out that only one percent of the human population throughout recorded history has ever actually died in a war. And as much   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Berkeley Professors Say We Have Created Millions of New Terrorists by Going into Iraq
 
Many in academia believe that the United States of America by going into Iraq has created millions of new terrorists. The common phrase is that we have stirred up the hornets nest. In the book; “Taking Stock of The Forever War” by Mark Danner he states that the Al Queda small group has become a the concept of “Al Queda’ism” and thus a call sign bringing people together against the West.Mr. Mark Danner believes that the United States has failed to earn the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people and Moslems throughout the region in the world. This would hardly be deniable, however how can you win the hearts and minds of the people when clerics are able to incite violence in   (read full article)
