The Changes of Womanhood in Marge Piercy‘s “The Secretary Chant” - Marge Piercy’s “The Secretary Chant” begins the poem by describing different parts of her body as office supplies. In line one she states that “My hips are a desk.” In line two and three she says “From my ears hang/ chains of paper clips.”(2) In line four she also continues with “Rubber bands form my hair.”(3) I feel like Piercy’s goal by starting off the poem in this way, was to help emphasize the speakers frustrations toward her job right away. I also feel that by comparing the speakers body parts to office supplies, gives the feeling that the speaker is using a form of sarcasm; which explains how much her job is unwillingly becoming apart of her life....   [tags: Marge Piercy, Secretary Chant, poetry, ] 737 words

The Negative Effects of Colonialism on the Colonized Country - Colonialism, which was a major cause of the north-south gap that occurred in the period following the Second World War, is the takeover by a nation of foreign territories; making them part of it to aid its own economical, social and political structures. The mother countries succeed in doing that by using the colony’s natural resources, money savings, and their lands, which leads the colony to rely on the mother country and therefore, leaving the country underdeveloped. Hence, the world wide scramble for colonies, particularly in the late 19th – early 20th century, had a tremendous negative effect on the economic, social, and political structures of indigenous, non-industrialized peoples....   [tags: world history] 817 words

Simple Evolution of Complex Crystal Sequences - In 1966 Graham Cairns-Smith proposed that the first genetic material on earth was not organic, but crystalline, and resided in the particular morphologies of clays.

It is therefore of interest to ask whether crystals and physical conditions for their assembly exist where complex crystal morphologies could evolve. DNA tile crystals are particularly suitable for this kind of investigation because DNA tile monomers are programmable---new molecules with particular affinities can be easily designed and synthesized....   [tags: Biology] 1874 words
