- Media sex and violence
The portrayal of violence, sex, and drugs and alcohol in the media has been known to adversely affect the behavior of children and adolescents. There is a strong relation between the insights of media messages and the observed behavior, especially with children. People have been utterly blind at the thought of how much damage is being brought upon the children of this generation. And many will not realize it at all until the damage has been done. As you will read about in the sections below, yo...
It is true that children today spend far more time indoors than in previous generations. I would say that this has both a positive and negative side.
Children today seem to spend far too long inside with computer games, watching TV and videos. This is definitely bad in some ways because children should develop outdoor pursuits
such as football, cricket and basketball that would make them healthy now and in their later lives. If they don‛t learn to play sports when they‛re young, ...

- stealing love away
tty theft more commonly called stealing is a unimaginative and pathetic crime. A crime that is reserved for the poor and the helpless. People with nothing left, who resort to stealing in a last ditch effort of survival. Third world countries and slums are the breeding grounds for a social class that fits this definition. Last place one should find this crime being committed is in a middle American suburban utopia by a innocent faced girlfriend. A girlfriend who happened to be mine.

Power of words
When I think about a bully, I picture someone hitting or pushing, or throwing things. Often, though, a bullyís only weapon is words. Up to half of the time, kids tease others about being gay. Whether the description is true or not, the teasing is unkind. That kind of negative talk is called homophobia.
By the seventh grade, homophobic bullying can turn into sexual harassment. This is much more dangerous. It can hurt people deeply and even physically.
Bullies also tend to use la...

Synthesis Essay: Americans are never satisfied
Satisfying an American is about as difficult as filling a black hole. For a collection of people who have just about anything they could want, including international supremacy, it never seems to be enough. Whether it is money, pride, or prestige, Americans are always asking for more and more. Americans, although already digging into their heart's desires, are never satisfied because they are materialistic, nationalistic, and simplistic...
Even though the Crips started out to be a positive movement, their environment and situations had an outstanding impact on the negative out come of the gang. Money and power was a major reason why rhe gang split off in so many different groups, now there are hundreds of gangs.

A lesson in life
My eyes gleamed when I saw a youthful and bright smile from an aged and dull photo. This is my grandmother's enchanting smile.
She was 75 years old when she rested in peace. I was 15. During those 15 years, Grandma's appearance added vivid colours to my life. Yet, I brought her disquiet and countless troubles.
I was brought up by Grandma. As I remember, whenever the weather changed, she would tirelessly tell me to put on more clothes; whenever there was a bowl of soup, she wo...
- asian work ethic
The video gave me an overview of values and work ethics of that of Asian kids and American kids. In the video, the American kids seemed more relax and more lay back, while the Asian kids tend to study more. Why is that? To me, I think Chinese kids in particular had hard work incorporated in their culture. For example, American has advance technology which makes lifeís everyday task easier while the Asian donít.

Geronimo had gained valuable war experience and leadership in prior battles and war with the Mexicans. That experience was proved not enough to...
Consider the most gruesome of crimes against humanity during the last century. Also, consider the time it took to carry out these deliberate deeds against human life. What could you compare them to in our current millennium? Adolf Hitler terrorized countries and tried to extinguish an entire race over a period of about eight years. Osama Bin Laden tried to exude fear worldwide in only a few short hours. How could anything good come from such brutal acts? While both act...

Having thoughts of them together,

Seeing his smile,
just makes her day.
She gets quivers down her ba...
