The Family Is Not A New One

- The concept of the family is not a new one. It dates back at least as far as the Hammurabi Code, when family members could be sold to pay off debt. The way families are viewed by society is constantly in flux. The purpose of a family, however, as a group of people who support, love, care, nourish and educate one and other has remained constant for many generations now. The “acceptable” or expected makeup of such families is also something which has changed. In the fifties, the nuclear family created a model that many still dream of....   [tags: Family, Marriage, Nuclear family, Mother]

Philmont Trek

- Wiping the sweat from my brow I called a halt to the crew. Phil and I dumped our packs and found a comfy boulder to rest on. I looked back to where the last guys were coming from back down the trail. They had stopped talking a while back and marched slowly along the dirt trail. Phil produced an energy-bar he’d saved from breakfast and began to munch on it as I drained another water bottle. After the refreshing drink I laid back against the rock and stared up at the pine trees. But a moment later, hearing grumble about sore legs, I sat up, grinning, “By the map we only have another couple hours.” After one look Phil recognized the sarcasm and followed suit, “Is that all....   [tags: essays research papers]

- Deception in Sophocles' Philoctetes and Hesiod's Theogony For many centuries, the art of deception has been a powerful tool for achieving goals, and it has spawned the ancient debate of the ends justifying the means.
