From the Hills of Columbia

- Often, when trying to pin a definition to the word beauty, there is a specific set of words that come up: Graceful, ethereal, dreamlike, sparkling. Perhaps one could describe with those words a pristine lake in the muted lavender of early morning, with a swift flock of birds flying almost soundlessly overhead. Can you think of a more beautiful thing. Well, imagine this: warmth, comfort, a stolen moment of time where you’re able to connect again with the inner you. Imagine a cup of coffee. Sitting on the table, steaming cheerfully, just waiting for you to pick it up and commence your morning rituals....   [tags: Coffee]

Music During The Classical Period

- The term classical generally refers to something that has a wide and long lasting appeal. In music, it indicates the music written from about 1750 to 1825. Balance and order were two of the most important qualities of the music of this period. Simplicity, diversity and elegance prevailed in contrast to what was seen as the excessive, complex characteristics of Baroque music. The seeds of the Classical age were sown by a number of composers whose names are now, for the most part, forgotten. They were representative of a period which is variously described as rococo, a gradual move away from the Baroque style, or galante, a style characterized by symmetry and balance....   [tags: music]

Pesticides are Not a Solution

- Life is easy for the modern persons. The threat of starvation is not imminent. The days of hunting and gathering are over for the vast majority of citizens thriving in developed nations.

Khakis Tell Quite the Story

- In the 1997 article Listening to Khakis, published in the New Yorker, Malcolm Gladwell effectively paints a vivid picture of the thought and science that goes into advertising campaigns. Gladwell begins his paper by focusing on the Dockers’ advertising campaign for their line of adult male khaki pants, which he labels as extremely successful. This campaign was the first line of successful fashion advertisements aimed directly toward adult males (Gladwell, 1997). This campaign was cunningly simple and showed only males wearing the pants being advertised with the background noise filled with men having a casual conversation (Gladwell, 1997)....   [tags: Listening to Khakis, Malcom Gladwell]

Art, by Ralph Waldo Emerson

- The concept with which Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Art” deals is the recognition of beauty through art. Art is viewed through the course of the composition as both an expression of the human soul and as a language that speaks to all individuals, not just the rich or the privileged. To the individual, art is a means through which he/she can be inspired to create and, in turn, inspire others. What Emerson attempts to pontificate is the overarching idea that art conveys different meanings unto different individuals and serves as a tool for inspiration for the spirit....   [tags: Individual Perceptions, Beauty]

The Prelude by William Wordsworth

- Man's journey through life is poignantly influenced by the perspective he embraces. A perspective acts as a lens to view the world, swaying one's way of thinking and decision making. This perspective is constantly tested by the prolonged process of maturation that continues with age. The Romantic period ceded a break from intellectual conformity towards emancipation; it marked a radical shift in popular thinking, resulting in the growth in the value of literature, art and nature. Young Wordsworth's life during this inquisitive time establishes a unique context in which to describe the relation between one's experiences and one's developing views....   [tags: romantic movement, french revolution]

Educational Theories: Humanism and Constructivism

- Teachers in most schools today are expected to focus on fostering academic competence, and overlook the spiritual life of their students. Unless we teach in a private school that incorporates religion into the curriculum, it would be a challenge to include spirituality into the subject matter without violating the separation of church and state in the 1st Amendment of the United States Constitution. The leadership of the educator is pivotal because ultimately “We teach who we are.” I believe those of us who are comfortable with our own spirituality will be able to integrate our faith in our pedagogy and be in a better position to make a lasting impact on the lives of our students....   [tags: christian values, academic competence]

The Evolution of Ernest Hemingway

The tip of the iceberg are the facts that the reader must know, and the rest of the Iceberg, the majority of it - is left up for the reader to discover. This portion is uncovered by how the reader interprets the “two different meanings of a phrase, not from multiple interpretations of its thematic import” (Cohen 1). As Hemmingway’s writing evolved, so did the “crystalline clarity and structural simplicity” (158) of the tip of his icebergs, but in Soldier’s Home one of his first published works the “iceberg” appears to be...   [tags: iceberg effect, writing style]
