Now, Wal-Mart is expected to exceed “$200 billion a year in sales by 2002 (with current figures of) more than 100 million shoppers a week…(and as of 1999) it became the first (private-sector) company in the world to have more than one million employees.” Why. One reason is that Wal-Mart has continued “to lead the way in adopting cutting-edge technology to track how people shop, and to buy and deliver goods more efficiently and cheaply than any other rival.” Many examples exist throughout Wal-Mart’s history including its use of networks, satellite communication, UPC/barcode adoption and more....   [tags: essays research papers] 7713 words

John Updike's A & P - John Updike's A & P At first read, John Updike's 'A & P' contrasts old and new; the old manager in his settled life conflicting with the new age of girls wearing bathing suits in buildings. All the while, the narrator stuck in the middle, finally deciding to join the side of new, or youth. Instead of old vs. new, an observation closer to the heart of the story is conflict between the worlds of the rich and the middle class. ?A & P. is the setting for one man to decide in which way he will seek to follow his life, standing on his own two feet and treating everyone as equals, or bowing before the wealthy, and searching for his own riches above all else....   [tags: John Updike A & P Social Class Wealth Essays] 1455 words

Blindly Jumping into War - Blindly Jumping into War Mike Thompson is a political cartoonist for The Detroit Free Press and is one example of an American expressing his viewpoint about the oncoming war with Iraq. Thompson tries to appeal to anyone who takes time to read the paper, and presumably, his intent is to introduce a new viewpoint to those supportive of the war. In Thompson's political cartoon published, February 26, 2003, he uses a well-known American symbol, Uncle Sam, to comment on current events. By paying close attention to the symbolism and other details in the cartoon, I want to show that Thompson critiques the actions of President Bush, who according to the image, seems to be jumping blindly into a war with Iraq and who will pull an unconvinced country with him....   [tags: President Bush Iraq War Terrorism Essays]

In fact, Tolkien is rightly regarded as the father of the modern fantasy genre, and it often seems all fantasy imitates his work in some way. However, as readers return to the work, it often becomes apparent that the work is more than a simple escapist journey into an imaginary world; the work represents the finest traditions in literature and rich grounding in Tolkien's study of language and mythology....   [tags: J.
