Improving Low Voter Turnout in the United States - In our system of government we are privileged with the option to take part in the political process that runs the country. It is our right to vote that lets the people influence change in policy and set the guidelines that politicians must follow to be elected representatives. This precious ability, which is most coveted in most non-democratic countries, is taken for granted in our own. I believe that the low voter turnout in most elections is appalling. Why do people want to willingly give up their voice in our governmental system....   [tags: Politics] 474 words

Andy Warhol - Andy Warhol "Paintings are too hard. The things I want to show are mechanical. Machines have less problems. I'd like to be a machine, wouldn't you?"

He has a signature style which he uses repeatedly in artworks, by using commercial silk-screening techniques to create identical, mass produced images on canvas then varying the color and tone to make each edition look different....   [tags: Visual Arts Paintings Art] 475 words

Hemingway - From the time Ernest Hemingway became a renowned author, his works, as well as his life, have been analyzed by many. Under such scrutiny, many aspects of Hemingway’s works and life experiences have been in question to the realities and fallacies, which he laid forth. Much of Hemingway’s life, especially his time volunteering as an ambulance driver in Europe, has been in question to the true validity of his myth as a true adventurer and hero. However, as I have found, much of the mythology surrounding Hemingway is very true indeed, which leads me to believe that he did not embellish his life but rather used his experiences to create some of the greatest works of literature to be written throughout the twentieth century....   [tags: essays research papers] 475 words

In the Heat of the Night - In the Heat of the Night I have chosen to study the film "In the Heat of the Night". In particular, I have chosen to study the scene in which Tibbs and Golesby confront Endicott at his villa on his plantation. Firstly, I watched the scene through a couple of times to try and pick up an overall idea of the theme of the scene. The scene is quite long, containing 56 shots in total. The shots themselves are also long, as what is going on is a wordy confrontation, not a violent one, unlike in the car chase scene, where all the shots are very quick; a long shot brings an air of calm, whereas a quick, snappy shot conveys a sense of action....   [tags: Papers] 481 words
