Cyber Homeschooling essay

The new age is upon us, and with it has come new ideas in areas such as education. Cyber schooling is a new educational option available (R., Barb). Cyber home schooling can hold many benefits to a child that public or private schooling cannot. Although home schooling a child has been around for quite some time, the idea of letting the child learn on his or her own, over the internet, is a rather large accomplishment.

The country’s first online secondary school is not a regular public school, though it is funded by public dollars. It’s not a private school either, though it operates largely outside the realm of state regulations and district polices. Rather, it is a new kind of school, a sort of public/private hybrid known as a charter school. Charter schools are independent, results-oriented, publicly funded schools or choice designed and run by teachers or others under contract with a public sponsor. Teachers, parents, social service organizations, or others develop a contract, or charter, to convert an existing school to a charter school or start a new one. The organizers then seek a sponsor, a local school board, state board of education, State University, or some other public entity, to determine if the school is worth approving and to make sure approved schools abide by the charter terms. If a school fails to live up to its promises, particularly those addressing student performance, the charter may be revoked (Buechler). Now if we take this explanation and add a computer and the Internet, we have Cyber Charter Schools. (more…)

The Big Bang Theory Essay

There are currently two widely accepted scientific theories explaining how planet earth was formed. Creationists believe that God created the heavens and the earth, and that God said let there be light, and there was light. Creationists do not believe that random occurrences of nature sparked the beginning of life as we know it. Creationists believe that God created a fully formed earth, and produced man complete in His image. Evolutionists, on the other hand, believe that the universe exploded from a tiny particle.

The Big Bang Theory is the prevailing scientific theory concerning the origin of the universe. According to the Big Bang Theory, the universe was created sometime between 10 and 20 billion years ago. A massive cosmic explosion released radiation, particles, and clouds of atoms into the atmosphere. Before this tremendous explosion occurred, the total matter and energy of space was contained completely at one point. Evolutionists cannot say however, what existed before this event. The Big Bang caused particles to be thrown outward, and to continue in an expanding nature. After the Big Bang, the universe was very hot, and when it did begin to cool off, that is when the formation of common particles began to form. The particles that formed were what scientists would refer to as the building blocks of matter, photons, electrons, and quarks. Gravity soon took over, and condensed all the atoms into galaxies where stars appeared. A phenomenon that occurs when a star dies and explodes is called a supernova. When the stars exploded they created new types of atoms, which were released back into the galaxy and converged with cosmic dust and molecules. Then these formations condensed to form planets. Many more events took place and bacteria formed on earth, which evolved into the human form we know today. (more…)

Essay on Religion and Ethics

In the world today, there are two extremely different and distinct sets of values that most people follow. There are religious values, and there are also the ethical values of society. Some people find it important to strictly live by the guidelines of religion, while others feel they need only to obey societies moral codes or ethics. This is a never-ending conflict. Religion and ethics are two very separate entities in the world, and are two forms of values that definitely have opposing views of what is right and wrong. This is why religion and ethics cannot, and will not, ever agree with each other. It is easy to understand how these two sides cannot agree with each other and how they have completely opposing views when analyzing the topics of abortion, war, and homosexuality. (more…)

Institutional Racism Makes Two Societies Essay

Try to imagine everyday life. Who do you see on television? Who do you see as political leaders? What kind of people do you see working as doctors and lawyers versus the kinds of people you see working at fast food restaurants and as garbage collectors? Who is on the list of the wealthiest Americans? Who do you see living in your neighborhood? Is it racially mixed or segregated? When you think of a criminal who comes to mind? When answering these questions you’ll probably see a pattern. Whites are associated with better job positions, better living conditions, better lifestyles and blacks are associated with things like welfare, crime, poverty, and a reputation for not caring. These assumptions are based purely on how society likes to portray blacks and whites. It is not the African Americans fault that they are portrayed in this way but the fact that they are still being treated differently than whites. There are definitely two societies: a black society and white society and it will probably be that way for a long time. Institutional racism is to blame for the two societies on the basis that African Americans are discriminated against in the realms of education, health care, and criminal justice. (more…)

Anne Frank Essay

“But the bright little girl soon enough recognizes that the cultivated inner life can be a much more powerful and dangerous weapon with which to repel intruders than any baseball bat. It may be in her diary that she discovers how to keep part of herself back, and to take revenge on those who have wounded what part of her has been exposed. She learns about herself faster than her brother”. This quote was written by Thomas Mallon in 1984. The quote refers to Anne Frank being the “little girl”. I think that Thomas Mallon thought the confessional diary that Anne Frank kept was very powerful. Anne Frank did not need any weapons to fight off her enemies because she had the powers of words. The diary Anne kept did not only disparage her enemies. A lot of the time she would criticize herself and talk about her flaws. The diary was not all bad things either. Anne talked about how she understood her relationship with others. She talks about her personal growth and the development of her private and public self. Anne’s diary was published and soon everyone in the world knew of her secrets. The idea that Anne’s words are more powerful that a bat are supported by all of Anne’s writings, which is as simple as it sounds. (more…)

Madness in A Streetcar Named Desire Essay

A Streetcar Named Desire revolves around a theme of progressing madness. Blanche is the focal point of the madness because she has a low self esteem and her behavior is delusional. Her delusional behavior consists of her alcoholism, promiscuity, and compulsive lying. She constantly tries to cope with the madness, but the people around her drive her deeper into a delusional mental state. Many aspects of her life; however, make her madness more justifiable. Blanche’s increasingly unstable state culminates in her being committed to an asylum. The cause and effect of Blanche’s madness are used to bring the play together as a whole and show how madness affects everyone in the play. (more…)

Married couples today are getting a divorce due to many different reasons, either because of conflicts in the marriage, lost of romantic feelings, a spouse committing an affair, and other type of marriage problems. Most of these divorced couples have children that are very young and due to their age, have no idea on how to deal with an event like a divorce. These children will have to learn to deal with their parent’s divorce at such a young age, affecting them in a positive or negative way. After interviewing two sisters, who recently live through their parents’ divorce, and reading studies from mediator John W. Reiman, the American Academy of Pediatrics and Dallas Morning News’, Karen Patterson, that proves children may positively deal with the consequences of their parent’s divorce; however, the majority of children who see the process of divorce, can experience some long term negative effects.

Technology in the Future Essay

How many times have you been to an unfamiliar town or city and found yourself desperate for the loo but with no idea where the nearest public convenience might be?

This is the premise behind the idea for this project. To produce a resource so those unfamiliar with their current surroundings will be able to attend to that basic human need with the minimum of fuss. Wouldn’t it be great if you knew where the nearest convenience was if you were on a beach, in a town centre, or how far you had to go while travelling on the motorway? Or if you were just coming home after a boisterous night out at a pub? The inspiration for this website came about after hearing a set of outrageous stories about getting caught short whilst out and about. (more…)

Jealousy and Gender Essay

Jealousy is defined by Daly, Wilson & Weghorst (1982) as a “state that is aroused by a perceived threat to a valued relationship or position and motivates behaviour aimed at countering the threat”. There is empirical support to suggest that there is sexual differentiation in responses to scenario’s which elicit jealous reactions (Pietrzak, Laird, Stevens & Thompson, 2002). In a study conducted at the Australian National University in 2000, more men than women endorsed sexual infidelity as most distressing. The type of infidelity found more distressing to males and females is explained and justified by the evolutionary hypothesis (EH). It suggests that sex differences have their origins in the evolutionary process and are to be found universally (Buss, Larsen & Westen, 1996). Conversely the double-shot hypothesis (DS) suggests that men and women select the more distressing type of infidelity they think implies the occurrence of the other. Finally proponents of each hypothesis point to results and methodological deficiencies of the other hypothesis to undermine its claims. Although both hypotheses have reason to be believed the latter seems to be displaced by the amount of compelling evidence which suggests that sex differences have their origins in an evolutionary process that results in the different reactions to infidelity shown by men and women.
