...ving to a new city with my mom and brother. I didn’t know the antecedent of this movement, or the divorce but I had to accept it at that moment. Once again in my life a new start became with no friends, or anyone that I would know. Fortunately, or unfortunately I got to the best team in the country that time. It was a challenge to catch up to them. At first point my coach didn’t believe in me because I was weak and slow. Later on, I proved that he was wrong and did what no one believed, I got faster and faster and with that, stronger too.
After my receiving my high school diploma I decided that I want to continue my studies in the United States. Now I’m having the greatest challenge of my life by studying here, try to get a four-year degree and stay in the US if it’s possible. This is my greatest goal at the time and I will not give up on it until I accomplish it.

- Know Your Neighbors Moving a lot, I have accustomed to different types of neighbors. In ways neighbors can influence our everyday life, our social life, and we never really thought they could. But they do. They become important to us. There are the good and the bad, although from my perspective there are three main types of neighbors. You have your nosy neighbors, your friendly neighbors, and then come the busy neighbors. We all those. Nosy neighbors tend to be the ones you have to be extra careful with....

- Since the string of recent burglaries and crime in our neighborhood, Chief Gary Swindle has asked me to come up with a plan to create a Neighborhood Watch Program. This is a formal layout of how I plan to go about organizing a day and night watch, how I plan on selecting and screening our volunteers, what training will be required for those who choose to participate, and how I plan on maintaining interest and continued participation. First, we would need to establish a committee and a go-to person.... [tags: Police, Crime, Neighborhood watch, Want]

- The average household uses around 350 gallons of clean water daily, so imagine our lives without clean water available whenever we needed it. Currently, water is plentiful and we don’t give a second thought to how often we actually use it in our day to day lives. Every day we use water for cooking, cleaning, bathing, irrigating and other common jobs. If water for some reason became scarce in today’s society, the effects could be fatal. There would soon be a costly price put on the ability to enjoy clean, fresh water.... [tags: Clean Water, ]

- Nuclear Energy - Clean, Environmentally Friendly Energy Nuclear energy is the world's largest source of emission-free energy. Nuclear power plants produce no controlled air pollutants, such as sulfur and particulates, or greenhouse gases. "Renewables" like solar, wind and biomass can help. But only nuclear power offers clean, environmentally friendly energy on a massive scale. The use of nuclear energy in place of other energy sources helps to keep the air clean, preserve the Earth's climate, avoid ground-level ozone formation and prevent acid rain.... [tags: Energy]

- Remediating the environment has been a struggle for our nation and our planet for quite some time. For all the effort and expense on the part of governments and citizens to improve the environment, many environmentalists still do not see much benefit, and believe that environmental problems may soon become a crisis. “Most ecologists would agree that humans are plowing through the Earth’s natural resources at an unsustainable rate — and pushing up against some worrisome thresholds in the biosphere.” (Raudsepp-Hearne) Perhaps the problem is that humanity has not figured out the correct incentives to solve our substantial ecological dilemma....

- Chicago in the 1920s was a turning point for the development of ethnic neighborhoods. After the opening of the first rail connection from New York to Chicago in the 1840s, immigration sky rocketed from that point on. Majority of the immigrants to Chicago were Europeans. The Irish, Italians, eastern European Jews, Germans, and Mexicans were among the most common ethnicities to reside in Chicago. These groups made up the greater part of Chicago. The sudden increase in immigration to Chicago in the 1920s soon led to an even further distinguished separation of ethnicities in neighborhoods.... [tags: City Development, Ethnic Neighborhoods]

- A Clean Well-Lighted Place Today in class we talked about plot in relation to "A & P" by John Updike. I had always thought of plot as just being the sequence of events, but after our reading assignment I realize that there is much more to it. I’d never thought of looking for plot in things like patterns. My reaction to "A & P" is mixed because I disagree with the main character being a hero (as Updike intended). While reading the story I thought that the girls who came into the store were merely looking for attention.... [tags: A Clean Well-Lighted Place Essays]

- A Clean Well-Lighted Place A Clean, Well-Lighted Place by Ernest Hemingway looks at age from the viewpoint of an inexperienced and experienced individual, with the aid of an old man to emphasize the difference between the two. This story takes place late one night in a caf. The caf is clean, pleasant, and well lighted, which brings some kind of comfort to the atmosphere. Here in the caf sits a deaf, lonely, older man, who although is deaf can feel the difference that the night brings to the caf, a younger waiter, who believes people stay around the caf to make his life miserable, and a waiter who is a bit older and seems to understand that this place, the caf, is comforting....
