Beowulf Attacks the Dragon - Beowulf Attacks the Dragon. Beowulf makes his final boast. He says that, even though he is old, he shall “still seek battle, perform a deed of fame” by killing the dragon. (Norton59) He doesn't know how to grapple with the dragon, like he did with Grendel, so he will use a sword and shield. He tells his men that the outcome will be “with us at the wall as fate allots, the ruler of every man.” (59) He tells them to let him fight the monster alone, “By my courage I will get gold, or war will take your king, dire life-evil.” (60) *These three quotations indicate pagan elements of glory, not Christian.* eowulf approaches the barrow....   [tags: English Literature Essays]

Bioterrorist Attack in the United Sates - Biological warfare is a topic that many people tend to sweep under the rug and ignore. Shortly following the infamous 9/11 attacks, anthrax claimed five lives around the nation, but people do not live in fear of bioterrorism. The probability of another terrorist attack before the end of 2013, as explained by Mark d’Agostino and Greg Martin in “The Bioscience Revolution,” is high and most likely to come in the form of bioterrorism due to its relatively low production cost and availability (1). Due to the likelihood of such an attack, the need for good biodefense mechanisms is apparent....   [tags: Bioterrorism: The Next Big Thing 2015]

Heart Attacks - A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to a portion of the heart muscle is severely reduced or stopped.

Over the past decade or so, there has been a race in academia to claim the prize for the best theory to explain the events before and after September 11. The consensus is that the dominant discourse of realism has won, because it conceives of conflict and destruction as natural in an anarchical world (from Thomas Hobbes' "anarchical state of nature"). It also justifies America's threatening military actions after the terror strikes as a natural form of behavior of strong states, which always bully the weak into compliance to serve the former's selfish interests....   [tags: September 11 Terrorism Essays] 1889 words
