Professional Sports - NBA Players are Greedy

- NBA Players are Greedy       How many of us would love to make $2.4 million a year. Or even better, how does $126 million over a six-year period sound. Then again, why stop there. As John Donovan, a sports analyst for Sports Illustrated and CNN points out, with the average salary of players in the NBA at $2.4 million a year, and some players with contracts well over $100 million, it's hard to see what many of them are complaining about. Players in the NBA need to stop being so greedy, agree to a drug policy and realize that they are employed by the owners and should follow all rules and regulations set by the league....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essay Examples]

- The Childlike and Biblical Connotations in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe     Throughout his writing career, CS Lewis has been known for writing many books with a hint of biblical connotations in them. As Kathryn Lindskoog states, "CS Lewis is known for opposing the spirit of modern thought with the unpopular Christian doctrines of sin and evil" (2083). Lewis himself has said, "You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life or death to you" (Freaks 60)....   [tags: Lion Witch and the Wardrobe Essays]

Are Our Morals Genetically Determined or Merely Assumed?

- In a recent commentary for BBC News, Clark McCauley, Professor of Psychology at Bryn Mawr College, analyzed the issue of human evolution from a standpoint that drew on his knowledge of psychology: gradual and collective changes in human behavior. According to McCauley, as environments and situations changed, human behavior was forced to adapt accordingly. In his comments, McCauley cites the example of disgust; although it is now a common human reaction, McCauley claims it once did not exist. As humans became less capable of digesting raw meat, disgust became an important deterring force that, through the process of evolution, became a familiar and shared part of human existence....   [tags: Philosophy Biology Essays]

Tozer wrote this book in 1948 but if anything it is more relevant today.
