While this may appear extreme at first glance, previous instances in academia prove it be true often. As an active participant in the International Science Fair, I witnessed this phenomenon first hand when the Board of Student Affairs implemented additional project categories meant to better separate student projects. While the intent was to encourage students to delve into new fields of research, the overall diversity of the fair declined, as students assumed that if their projects did not completely fit into one of the given categories, then it was an ill

a people deprived of social and political power is authentically manifested; true faith and understanding of democracy cannot be divorced from the black social experience that begins with the Middle Passage and the transportation of those deemed to be pagan and enemies of Christ. The language of “vanquish”, “capture”, and “subdue” is the mortar that holds the bricks of this city and all other cities across this country together. For the last week my engagement with the transformative aspects of this immersion has uncovered the need for pulling that reality out of the shadows of the hallowed halls of academia and theological pontifications into the light of day.

and soul, passion and reason, and the situation of a woman entering the intellectual territory of men. The theme of women’s and more specifically, her own right to pursue an education and a secular life runs throughout her response. The meat of the nun’s argument is easily identified when she states, “I do not study to write, even less to teach—which in only like myself were unseemly pride—but only to the end that if I study, I will be ignorant of less” (213). Essentially, she is stating that there are benefits of knowledge—that academia is vital in everyday life as well as in theological learning. By displaying her extensive knowledge about the Scriptures through the use of numerous quotes from the Bible, Sister Juana de la Cruz successfully demonstrates how important her scholarly background is to her understanding of the Word.

Nicholas Kaldor, one of the latter-half of the century's leading contributors to the development of equilibrium theory, shares Kenney and Williams' claim that thought about economic growth often fails to understand the "complex nature of the social world" .

What does it mean?
As one of Shakespeare's all-time famous quotes, Hamlet's words have stood the test of time and are often quoted even today in both academia and pop culture. In the beginning of his fourth, and best known, soliloquy Hamlet muses about the conundrum of suicide. He wonders if one route is "nobler" than the next. At this point in the play, Hamlet has been unable to act upon his motives for personal revenge, and this frustrates him. Which is better, suffering as he has been

I am a firm believer in lifelong learning. I have been in academia since I was 4 years old and that is something that I simply enjoy. From a professional perspective and especially in the field of health and social care I do feel it is important to ensure that you are continually improving your knowledge, skills and practice.

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

But no price is too high to pay for the the privilege of owning yourself.” In my opinion, I believe this quote is true. Many people feel like they have to be a certain way for society to like them.

Generally it uses what’s known as a bacterial vector. In simple terms, you take the stretch of DNA you want to insert into an organism – say, for example, the DNA that makes a carrot produce vitamin A. You insert it into a bacterium, usually agrobacterium tumefaciens, and you introduce that bacterium into the organism you want to modify, say a rice plant.

Common phrases such as “please” and “thank you” have lost their meaning. They act only as the default frame of conversations, but they have no substance or sincerity.

Throughout the years, policing has evolved in many ways that people couldn’t have even imagined. During the beginning of policing in America, officers were known as “watchmen”, and were volunteer workers. This method proved to be ineffective for crime fighting, and many watchmen were only doing the job to avoid military service (Gaines, Kappeler, and Vaughn 1999).
