In their own view, they are innocent criminals; innocent, because their action is justified, but criminals, because they kill. So tacitly they conclude that they deserve punishment that will remove the regret from their shoulders. Their execution, by the same despotic authorities they are attacking, completes their actions: regret, caused by justified killing, gets its counterpart....   [tags: Just Assassins Camus Essays]

The Physics of Cooling Techniques - There are many reasons for wanting to cool things, but whatever the reason, the Second Law of Thermodynamics dictates that cooling something will take effort (sorry, no spontaneously cool sodas). Different techniques have been developed to address this issue, each having its own limitations and ideal uses.

Cigarette Advertising - Truth About Cigarette Advertising Two lithe, tanned bodies lazily languish near a limpid river. The heads of the two persons are thrown back in poses of a supremely confident nature. Their facial features, though, are indistinguishable amidst the ephemeral haze which envelops them. Curiosity piqued and intently surveying the scene, one then notices the cigarettes dangling from the fingers of the pair. Advertisements such as this are now ubiquitous to the point of annoyance. These attempts to entice consumers to buy cigarettes are not simply trumped up exaggerations, as is the case with other products....   [tags: Marketing Tobacco]

The Drive - ... Long 2 If you got caught doing something at The Drive, it was most likely due to your own stupidity or lack of attention to detail. Bike Cops, as we called them prowled the vast parking lots and watched with binoculars from the wooded areas around the baseball diamonds and football fields. They could do little more than be a nuisance or minor harassment if you knew how to deal with them. This stanza projects the feeling of liberation, infinite wisdom, and un earned sense of entitlement....   [tags: Literary Themes]

The Grande Odalisqe - The Grande Odalisqe The Grande Odalisque painted in 1884, drew many criticisms. There were complaints about the lifelessness of the subject, the fact that she has three vertebrae too many. It illustrates the rather strange mixture of Ingres’s artistic allegiances. His subject, the reclining nude figure, is traditional, going back to Giorgione and Titian; but by converting her into an odalisque, an inhabitant of a Turkish harem, he makes a strong concession to the contemporary Romantic taste for the exotic....   [tags: Art Analysis] 352 words
