The Solubility of Oxygen and Ammonia
Oxygen does not dissolve in water as readily as ammonia does because of polarity. The polarity of the water helps it break down or dissolve other polar molecules. Polarity is when a molecule bonded by a covalent bond has unequal sharing of electrons between atoms which causes the atoms to have charges. This is because the different atoms have a different electronegativity, which is how strongly the nucleus of the atom pulls on it's electrons. In H2O, the ox...

- Teenage Depression
Teenage depression is a growing problem in today's society and is often a major contributing factor for a
multitude of adolescent problems. The statistics about teenage runaways, alcoholism, drug problems,
pregnancy, eating disorders, and suicide are alarming. Even more startling are the individual stories behind
these statistics because the young people involved come from all communities, all economic levels, all
home situations-anyone's family. The common link i...
- Women And Sexism
Women and Sexism
"We [women] are, as a sex, infinitely superior to men." Elizabeth Stanton (prominent woman suffragist) - (excerpted from One Woman, One Vote by Wheeler, pg. 58)
"Frailty, thy name is woman."
William Shakespeare - (excerpted from Hamlet, Act I, scene 2)
This quote made by Stanton in 1890 shows many of the feministic beliefs held by the women of today. And the quote made by Shakespeare holds many of the same thoughts shared by men. The battle of the sexes is prevalent everywher...
- Influences On A Persons Identity
Influences on a Person's Identity
What influences a person’s identity? Is it their homes, parents, religion, or maybe
where they live? When do they get one? Do they get it when they understand right from
wrong, or when they can read, or are they born with it? Everyone has one and nobody has
the same, is there a point in everyone’s life when they get one? A person’s identity is his
own, nobody put it there and nobody can take it out. Everyone in this world has a

In-School Condom Distribution: Quite Unnecessary
With the rather dramatic increase in teenage pregnancies and the higher rates of sexually transmitted diseases in recent years, the issue of safe sex among teenagers has been thrown into the national spotlight. One of the many potential fixes for this problem is in school condom distribution. This proposal has gained the favor of many anti AIDS groups because of its promises to increase condom usage among sexually active teenagers. However, i...
- Education Of Gifted Children
Education of Gifted Children
Started in the 1970’s, America’s Gifted & Talented programs
are used to enhance the curriculum of students included in either
category in order to challenge and strengthen their unique abilities.
These students are usually provided a separate class with specialized
lessons in all areas and a teacher with a special degree in gifted
education. I feel that it is important that the teacher was a gifted
student who would know what the students must...

Saul Perkins U.S. Multicultural Visions
November 4th 1998 Paper 3
Ask any typical-looking Asian students around campus whether they are Chinese or Japanese and the reply will probably be universal: “Neither, I’m Chinese-American.” In reality, developing a clear concept of exactly how they define themselves as a “race” has become a difficult thing to do in this day and age for most Chinese-Americans. Many have beco...

Hate based on race, religion and sexual orientation exist within any cultural rich societies. When this type of hate fuels a person into taking violent actions upon those they hate, it is called a hate crime; a topic which the American public is seriously concerned about.

Cultural resources are the traces of all past activities and
accomplishments of people that includes designated historic districts,
archeological sites, buildings, structures, and objects. These also include less

past societies and environments, and can provide answers for modern day social
The word abortion by definition means, naturally or especially induced expulsion of a fetus from the womb before it is able to survive independently, according to the American Century Dictionary. This is one subject that, when mentioned, completely polarizes individuals. Abortion poses a moral, social and medical dilemma that faces many individuals to create a emotional and sometimes violent atmosphere. There are many points of view toward abortion but the only two fine distinctions ar...
- Rave Culture: The Number One Example Of Social Deviance
Rave Culture: The Number One Example of Social Deviance
What is a rave? This is a fundamental question that, in a way, I will attempt to answer in this paper, but I will never do it. Raving is a highly subjective experience. One person's best rave is another person's worst. Any attempt to analyze rave culture must recognize the highly personal factor of the experience. It is because of this fact that I start off my attempt to analyze rave culture with a series of quotes on the expe...

Scams on the Elderly: Can we do anything about it?
Scam artists have always preyed on the gullible, but in recent years,
much of the focus of these thieves has been on the elderly. It is quite a well
known fact that the elderly possess the greatest percentage of disposable
income with the least amount of debt. Old people with money. Scam artists
prey upon these people with unrelenting deception. It is not a problem that will
just go away. The problem must be analyzed...
