Hacking Crime or Craft
Hacking Crime or Craft Computer hackers in today's world are becoming more intelligent. They are realizing that people are constantly developing more hack-proof systems.

Hand Guns Must Go
Hand Guns Must Go By: Rick E-mail: FIFFreak99@aol.com Handguns Must Go People own hand guns for many reasons. Some keep handguns for protection; others collect them as a hobby. There is a substantial amount of people in America that own handguns for one specific reason, to commit crimes. Usually they are committing a crime just by having a gun in their possession.

Government Spending
Government Spending How money is used, raised, and wasted in Washington As many Federal departments and agencies lurch into an era of running without funds, the leaders of both parties of Congress are spending less and less time searching for a compromise to balance the budget, and more and more time deciding how to use it to their advantage on the campaign trail. Meanwhile money is easily borrowed to pay for government overhead. In an attempt to change this, on June 29, Congress voted in...

Government Canada and China
Government: Canada and China The two countries I have chosen to compare are China and Canada. Their systems of government are very different and have different powers and rolls in their country. Canada has a system of government very similar to our own. While china's government appears to be similar as well, but it is quite different. Canada's government democratic and is parliamentary in form but, very much like our own. Like all large governments it is representative democracy. Canada has ...

Gun Control A Firing Issue
Gun Control- A Firing Issue Gun control is undoubtedly an issue that most Americans have been exposed to. In 1989, guns killed 11,832 Americans. The National Rifle Association (NRA) members believe that it is their constitutional right to own guns, stating that guns are not the root of the crime problem in the United States. Gun control activists like the members of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) argue that guns are responsible for the majority of violent crimes that take pl...

Gender Socialization
Gender Socialization A baby is born and the doctor looks at the proud parents or parent and says three simple words: Its a boy, or Its a girl! Before a newborn child even takes his or her first breath of life outside the mothers womb, he or she is distinguishable and characterized by gender. The baby is brought home and dressed in clothes that help friends, family and even strangers identify the sex of the child. Baby boys are dressed in blue and baby girls are dressed in pink. The baby boy ...

Gender
Gender By: April Gender Issues: Have Woman�s Rights Improved? Twenty-five years ago, when my mother was little she had three career choices available to her, a teacher, a nurse, or a secretary. So as the I was growing up my mother made sure that I knew that I could be whatever I wanted to be, when I grew up. With this belief in mind I set my goal as becoming the first woman President of the United States, but as I started to work towards this goal I realized that what she did not tell ...

Getting Out of Reach
Getting Out of Reach By: Cosio E-mail: jlcosio@mail.ru Getting Out of Reach Prescription drug prices are rising much faster than the rate of general consumer inflation. The most heavily affected are those who can least afford it, like older Americans living on fixed incomes, and the working poor with inadequate or no health insurance. The rise in drug prices is causing the public to ask why. The reasons include the immense research costs, consumer advertising and the growth of managed ...

Global Stratification A Socio
Global Stratification- A Socio By: James Cory E-mail: captainobvious@rocketmail.com The industrialization and technology of the world�s higher income nations has a negative effect on the plight of the world�s poorer nations. The high-income nations� industrialization encourages child labor, poor living conditions in exchange for material things, and higher world pollution. When the higher income nations became industrialized in the 1800�s, the lower income nations were slow to ...

Gen X
Gen X By: Erin E-mail: Sasqutch99@aol.com We Do Not Xactly Care About the Government What is the point of the government? This is a question I often ask myself. I am a member of Generation X, or so I've been labeled since I was born in 1981. I have been labeled as lazy, irresponsible, and apathetic. One of those words applies to me right now, and that is my apathy toward the government. At this time in my life it does not matter what happens in the government, it will continue to run w...

Gender Communication in the Wo
Gender Communication in the Wo By: Ann Culver Communication between males and females has always been somewhat complicated. Because we are arguing that males and females have different cultures we wanted to take a look at what some of these differences might be. According to our research the inherent differences between male and female culture are the different roles that society holds for them and the ways these roles lead to different communication styles. The stereotypes that men and ...

Gender Differences
Gender Differences I was surprised finding out that the topic for our paper was about our feelings of belonging to the other gender. I think the title of the book "Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus" by John Gray applies to how different men and women are in their attitudes, feelings and lifestyles. This experience for me will be enjoyable for me since I have never thought what it would be like to be a female and also to hopefully give me a better insight on a few questions that...

Gender Role Reversal
Gender Role Reversal By: MW Throughout one's life each of us face new obstacles due to the progression of the life cycle. Many of these so-called obstacles we encounter are from the many role demands that each one of us has to fulfill. As we get older our lives take on new roles, such as being a: wife, parent, school teacher, etc. One role, however, will never leave us, that's our gender. We will never truly know what it's like to put ourselves in the shoes of the opposite gender, but ...

Gender Selection
Gender Selection By: Galadriel E-mail: galadriel@jewelfan.com For centuries there had been one sex that dominated the development of society. Laws, religion and lifestyle all revolved around the idea that one sex, the male sex, was dominant. Oppressed and considered inferior, women would obey the men, forgo all rights and accept all responsibility. Only recently, with the emergence of the women�s liberation movement, have both sexes been considered equal. For the first time in human ...

Gay Parenting
Gay Parenting The conception that lesbians and gay men may be parents is frequently perceived in today�s society as impossible or immoral. Gay men and lesbians are often viewed as excluded from having children because sexual reproduction is related to men and women only. My approach to this uniquely controversial topic of gay parenting will be that of attempting to analyze the Pro side first. Gays and lesbians are human too and who is to say that they don�t deserve equal rights in societ...

Gay and Lesbian Adoption
Gay and Lesbian Adoption By: marcus E-mail: marcadamus@yahoo.com Gay and Lesbian Adoption Adoption has long been a way for a loving family who cannot have children on their own, or a family with some extra love to give to have children.

The long range answer to these questions can only be speculated upon, but in the short term the answers are much easier to find.

Freedom VS DestinyFreedom VS D
Freedom VS DestinyFreedom VS D People like to believe that they have the freedom to choose what they want to do, however it is quite the opposite. Freedom has its limitations to what people are allowed to do, but predestination has no limits of any kind. Freedom is in fact used to cover up predestination, to keep people content in following absurd rules. Without predestination, how do we know what the weather will be like, or if the sun rises, or if someone will stop at a red light. You just...
