Do You Consider Yourself A Reader?

- Do you consider yourself a reader now. If not, have you ever considered yourself a reader. Ten years ago if anyone had asked me this question, I would 've answered ‘without a doubt” in a heartbeat. My teachers had to pry books out of my hand because I couldn 't put it down until I finished. I received quite a few demerits that way. Today, however, I would be more hesitant to consider myself a reader. Within the past few years, I’ve read my fair share of books yet most have been for classes or work not simply for the pleasure of reading as I used to....   [tags: Harry Potter, J. K. Rowling]

Unforgiving Rapids

- Unforgiving Rapids The unforgiving water rushes past the boat, waiting for a false move. Called a class 5, this rapid looks more like a class 6 with the water as low as it is. Six to ten foot swells come crashing down from time to time keeping the crew sharp and wet. To the right, a thousand-foot wall of stone reaches for the sky, yearning for the omnipresent. The canyon walls look as smooth as silk, yet upon contact are as coarse as sandpaper. Quartz crystals glisten in the summer sun. No storm clouds today....   [tags: Personal Narratives Whitewater Rafting Essays]

Eye For An Eye Or Turn The Other Cheek?

- It is a time of mourning for the United States. They are now being compared with the countries they, themselves, condemn. The death penalty is cruel and unusual because it breaks sacred amendments and commandments. The death penalty should no longer be an option. According to many people, "we have progressed since the barbaric stone-age," (Alexander 1) yet our Judicial system does not seem to show it. Murdering someone is a barbaric act, whether it is by an individual, society, or our government....   [tags: essays research papers fc]

Palliative Care Services For Carers Of People With Learning Disabilities

Moreover, “Diagnostic overshadowing” is frequently a concern for people with learning disabilities as there is a tendency for healthcare professionals to blame ill health on learning disability instead of investigating any other physi...   [tags: Health care, Educational psychology, Disability]

Sutton Hoo

- I have to say I was watching a show about Beowulf, and that’s how I learned about the Sutton Hoo archaeological find. I was unsure what to do this regional paper on but saw the show and figured I would watch it. You see I have to read Beowulf in my history class, and thought the show might help. I had the extra bonus of figuring out what I would do for my regional paper. England is rich with history, especially from the medieval ages. In eastern England there is one such site, located in Woodbridge, Suffolk....   [tags: Archeology, Medieval TIme]
