College Admissions Essays: Understanding Mind, Body, and Spirit

- At the turn of the 20th century, the popular magazine Human Life reported that Mary Baker Eddy was "the most famous, interesting, and powerful woman in America, if not the world." The daughter of a New Hampshire farming family, she overcame many obstacles to become an acclaimed author, publisher, and religious leader whose legacy is still being felt today.

- For those new to Shanghai, what attract them most may be the dazzling neon lights, stylish buildings, great variety of commodities or delicious snacks. But for me, a native Shanghainese, it is the unique charm of the city that makes it appealing to all. With its confidence, tolerance, diligence and enterprising spirit, Shanghai attracts the world's attention.

- Almost one million people die in Japan every year. In other words, people die every 31 seconds. Some people die because of illness. Some people die because of car accident.

Hara-kiri is basically an act of killing your self by cutting open your stomach with a sword, performed especially by the warrior, to avoid shame or losing honor....   [tags: essays research papers]

Christmas Spirit

- Looking through a frosted window at fog and chimney smoke is the best. The only thing that could make it better is when snow is falling gracefully from the sky, powdering the ground below.

Winter means family coming together. Winter means Christmas. Winter means my favorite time of the year has arrived. I have always adored the season of winter....   [tags: personal narrative]

So they decided the best way was to hide the worst news from them. At least this way they would only know of the great accomplishments and fights fought by their men at arms, and would keep hope up of them coming home....   [tags: morale, blitz spirit, world war ii, ]

- Spirit Airlines has long been considered an unorthodox airline. They, of course, address all four P’s in their marketing strategy; however, they focus a large amount of their effort on price and promotion. They focus on cutting price through “unbundling”. They focus on promotion through taking advantage of social issues and breaking news. Many advertisements and deals promoted by Spirit have given the public a definite shock-factor. Spirit has made two objectives very clear: they are furious at getting the customer the lowest fare possible by any means necessary, and they will similarly use any means necessary to get those potential customers to notice those fares....   [tags: marketing strategy]
