We’ve all been in that situation before at a party; your outside, and you smell a strange smell. You see a group of kids talking and laughing as they take turns “hitting” or “passing” a bowl or joint. Then they turn around and ask you that dreaded question, “Do you want a hit?” Do you said yes, maybe you should said no, who knows you may smoke every day, or maybe you never will. The purpose of this essay is not to convince you to smoke marijuana , but to educate you more about Marijuana because it is everywhere in society and it’s about time everybody knows the history and truth about Cannabis. Question if marijuana is bad for you, then why do we hear about more accidents and fatalities due to alcohol intoxication. Alcohol is a legal drug that can directly kill you with too much consumption. How many cases have you heard of someone losing their life from alcohol poisoning. Approximately 80,000 deaths are caused by alcohol per year. How many cases have you heard of someone overdosing on marijuana; Alcohol is an addictive drug that can cause a person to not only ruin their life, but could end it as well. To most people Marijuana isn’t an addictive drug. The harmful effects of marijuana aren’t as harmful as the effects of alcohol is.

Initially according to Rawson, cannabis was only used to make industrial goods; its recreational use in America didn’t become popular until the early 20th century. Recreational use of cannabis was pushed up in the ranks with drugs such as cocaine and heroin. Since the beginning of its recreational use there has only been one recorded death due to an overdose. Many drug advocates as well as the government have made marijuana illegal; There are two types of cannabis one is called hemp and the next is called marijuana. Hemp contains less than one percent of THC, which can be used in the production of different industrial…...

Pharroah of Kush

...Kristen Miller African 191 October 8, 2012 Pharaoh Assignment Pharaoh Taharqo of Kush Taharqo was a pharaoh of the Ancient Egyptian 25th dynasty and king of the Kingdom of Kush, located in Northern Sudan. He was known as “the most powerful African in history known as the Emperor of the World.” Taharqo was the son of Piye, the Nubian king of Napata who had first occupied Egypt, and the son of Queen Abar. Piye was a Kushite king and founder of the twenty-fifth dynasty of Egypt who ruled Egypt from 753/752 BCE to 722 BCE. Taharqo took the throne after his uncle Shabaka and another male relative Shebitku. The flourishing crusades of Shabaka and Piye paved the path for a successful rule by Taharqo. Taharqo ruled Kush and Egypt from 690 to 664 BC. A sphinx symbolizes the great King Taharqo, the fourth pharaoh to rule over the united kingdoms of Kush and Egypt. This sphinx is very small, yet very fascinating. It is not just a cross between lion and man, it is a union between Egypt and Kush. The face is not representative of an Egyptian pharaoh’s face, because it is without doubt a black African, and this sphinx is the image of a black pharaoh. “Taharqo explicitly stated that he succeeded Shebitku with this statement: “I received the Crown in Memphis after the Falcon (i.e. Skebitku) flew to heaven” (Kitchen, 167). Taharqo, was the most significant of all the Kushite Kings. He began a golden age for his colossal new kingdom, and he thrived due to,......

Afghan Economy

... This paper is to explain the past, current and future economy of Afghanistan. As of 2011, Afghanistan has a population of roughly 30 million and is expected to increase to around 82 million people by the year 2050. Afghanistan is the 41st largest country in the world, and is similar in size to the state of Texas. Ranked 91st in world economies it has very high unemployment, nearly 35% countrywide. According to data from the Central Intelligence Agency, nearly 42% of Afghanistan’s population lives on less than $1 a day and almost 35% of the population lives below the poverty line. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita is a trifling $900, and is mainly due to the fact that 78% of the workforce is agricultural in nature. Only 5.7% of Afghans work in industries like mining and textiles, and another 15.7% of the Afghani work force are in the service industry. But to truly understand the Afghani people and their nation’s future economic endeavors, we must understand their past economy. In the 1930’s Afghanistan began a momentous undertaking of instituting new monetary methods unto their nation such as introducing paper money, created numerous facilities for general and higher education, and established a national bank. Unfortunately until roughly the 1950’s, Afghanistan lacked much of the necessary national infrastructure such as roads and railways to support an expansion in their industrial sectors. This factor locked them into decades of reliance on animal husbandry...

A&P and Araby

...A&P and Araby John Updike's A & P and James Joyce's Araby share many of the same literary traits. The primary focus of the two stories revolves around a young man who is compelled to decipher the different between cruel reality and the fantasies of romance that play in his head. That the man does, indeed, discover the difference is what sets him off into emotional collapse. One of the main similarities between the two stories is the fact that the main character, who is also the protagonist, has built up incredible,yet unrealistic, expectations of women, having focused upon one in particular towards which he places all his unrequited affection. The expectation these men hold when finally "face to face with their object of worship" (Wells, 1993, p. 127) is what sends the final and crushing blow of reality: The rejection they suffer is far too great for them to bear. Updike is famous for taking other author's works and twisting them so that they reflect a more contemporary flavor. While the story remains the same, the climate is singular only to Updike. This is the reason why there are similarities as well as deviations from Joyce's original piece. Plot, theme and detail are three of the most resembling aspects of the two stories over all other literary components; characteristic of both writers' works, each rendition offers its own unique perspective upon the young man's romantic infatuation. Not only are descriptive phrases shared by both stories, but parallels occur with...

Afghan Family

...In Grip of Cold, Afghan Family Buries 8th Child By ROD NORDLAND Published: February 8, 2012 KABUL, Afghanistan — The war refugee Sayid Mohammad lost his last son on Wednesday, three-month-old Khan, who became the 24th child to die of exposure in camps here in the past month.ß “After we had dinner he was crying all night of the cold,” Mr. Mohammad said. The family had no wood and was husbanding a small portion of paper and plastic that his daughter had scavenged that day. He said the boy had seemed healthy and was breast-feeding normally, though the family’s dinner consisted only of tea and bread. But he kept crying. “Finally we started a fire but it wasn’t enough,” Mr. Mohammad said. By 1 a.m. the boy was stiff and lifeless, he said. Even by the standards of destitution in these camps, Mr. Mohammad’s story is a hard-luck one; Khan was the eighth of his nine children to die. Back home in Gereshk District of Helmand Province, six died of disease, he said. Three years ago they fled the fighting in that area for the Nasaji Bagrami Camp here, where a three-year-old son froze to death last winter, he said. Like most of Kabul’s 35,000 internal refugees, he fled the country’s war zones only to find a life of squalor sometimes as deadly, even in the capital of a country that has received more than $60 billion in non-military aid over ten years. Later Wednesday morning, Mr. Mohammad’s sole surviving child, his daughter, Feroza, 10, stared saucer-eyed at her brother’s tiny......

Afghan Documentary Video Review

...The title derives from a genuine conviction of General John R. Allen remarking what he envisioned the Afghanistan war legacy to be: ‘‘Afghan forces defending Afghan people and enabling the government of this country to serve its citizens. This is victory, this is what winning looks like, and we should not shrink from using these words.’’ Directed by the award winning journalist Ben Anderson, you quickly realizse that the title is used with great irony revealing the trulye despondent state of the country, itsher corrupt leaders and the war battered civilians that were cast innocently into this mess. Upon Rresearch preparation ing for this review involved I watchinged several other pieces covering the battle against the Taliban in Afghanistan. The central purpose of those war-documentaries has usually been to give the viewers some sense of what a raw state of war feels like and the gritty situations in which that the soldiers are immersed. have to immerse themselves in. ‘This is what winning looks like’ has little of that, instead Anderson directs his gaze at the Afghan army and police who will ultimately be responsible for holding back the fort fromfrom the line against what the US sees as the scourge of the Taliban. This unique perspective which peers into the future displays the long-lasting effectiveness of terrorist organization of the Taliban’s capacity . With the official withdrawal of US and allied troops scheduled for late 2014, the time available to sand of time...

Afghan Peace Process

...How Afghan Peace Process can succeed? Abu Ezaan The prevailing stalemate in Afghan war amply validates the futility of military option in defeating insurgency. Erroneously, the political alternative has also been used to supplement the military option and weaken the insurgency to make it more amenable to reconciliation. It is now imperative that political negotiations in Afghanistan are pursued with sole objective of peace and stability in the country. An effort is made through these lines to suggest a workable way forward for successfully pursuing the reconciliation process in Afghanistan. Peace negotiations should be allowed to move forward while employment of reconciliation and reintegration as an instrument of military strategy to be abandoned once for all. The viability of fight and talk seems out of place and needs to be discarded for a more workable option. The strategy in place has failed to remove prevailing trust deficit among belligerents, an essential component of any peace process. Certain Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) that can be put in place include, delisting of Taliban leaders from UN sanction list, release of prisoners and agreement on power sharing mechanism. The strategy of pursuing talks with selected insurgent groups should be done away with and an all inclusive, broad based as well as comprehensive dialogue be initiated. The discrimination among various insurgent groups citing various reasons such as relations with al-Qaida, greater......

Work would proceed in a fixed sequence of assembly steps, and the process connects all activities in an inflexible process. This process has high capital investment and only produces a minimum amount of product, one. The only reservation I have about this is that the production volume is low.

A&P Contrast

...“A&P” and “Gryphon” have two very unique story plots yet they seem to resemble one interesting characteristic that develops throughout the story leading to an interesting turn of events. The stories are both told in first person narrative and have a sort of interesting rebellious appeal to them. It begins with the contrast between the stories plot development but leads to a troublesome “fork in the road” type scenario that puts an interesting twist onto the conclusion of the story. Some may see rebelliousness as acting against the norm but “John Updike” the author of A&P tells a tale of how two different sets of people both defy society and begin paving a way of change into the new generation. “Gryphon’s” story set is told from how a change in the way we think may leave us changing the way we live our lives. The stories may seem to have different alternatives overall but the way they are portrayed by the authors have a similar comparative aspect that can be looked at from both angles regardless of the storyline. When someone seems destined to choose a different path in life often times people may see this person as an outcast or indifferent to some. In A&P Sammy seems to not to be fulfilled with the way he spends his dull uneventful youth life ultimately leading to the defiance and betrayed to his boss over a deemed inappropriate act. “"Is it done?" he asks, the responsible married man finding his voice. I forgot to say he thinks he's going to be manager some......

...1- Pak-Afghan Trade Relation: Pakistan and Afghanistan have a history of bilateral trade relations and economic interactions. A distinguishing feature of relationship in both countries is the shared border spanning about 2500 kilometers which is crossed by some 50,000 people everyday. This reflects the strength of socio economic interaction between two countries. Pakistan is currently the largest trading partner of Afghanistan, while Afghanistan is Pakistan’s third largest trading partner. Pakistan's exports to Afghanistan tripled during last six years, from half a billion dollars in fiscal year 2004 to 1.5 billion dollars in 2010.

A&P Analisys

... John Updike’s “A&P” as a provocative tale of social perception In order to understand the two stories on John Updike’s “A&P”, the characters have to hold the weight of being the most important theme in the short story. The first set of characters consists of Sammy, the Girls, and Lengel who all dictate the first short story from Sammy’s point of view. The second of the two tales Updike pens about in this short, is that of where he makes us question what being “decent” by society’s current standards means, by putting an emphasis on perception and almost spoon-feeding us readers to pick up on what he’s trying to imply by using Sammy to illustrate it all. The paper-thin storyline consisting of what Sammy is going through by narrating and the other, which is the main story being Sammy and the girls representing freedom and non-conformity from a neutral point of view versus what Lengel, the shoppers, and the storefront itself represent as being the socially correct status quo and policy we hold as normal living in society. In this story the establishment that is the A&P itself, is portrayed as routine and monotonous as a market in the middle of town can possibly be. Updike made it so on purpose, to give us a neutral setting that synonymous with our reality and what we perceive as normal behavior in society. The A&P is acceptable as a run-of-the-mill chain market, this character represents the status quo of a 1st world society where one is judged instantly for......

Impact of Afghan War on Pakistan

...Impact of afghan war on Pakistan economy “Although history has been very unkind to Pakistan but its geo-strategic position has been a great asset to garner benefits from world great powers” (Stephen p. Kohen) • Introduction The conflict and instability in Afghanistan is the aftermath of 9/11 attacks and their regional implications had very negative repercussions, for the years following the US invasion of Afghanistan not only saw a huge influx of Afghan refugees across the border into Pakistan but also witnessed a sudden spike in the frequency and scale of terrorist attacks in Pakistan. The cumulative impact of these developments adversely impacted the overall growth rate in all major sectors of the economy. Pakistan continues to pay a heavy price both in the economic and security terms due to this situation and a substantial portion of precious national resources both men and material, have been diverted to address the emerging security challenges for the last several years. The rise of violent extremism and increase in terrorism in Pakistan due to instability in Afghanistan not only caused serious damage to Pakistan’s economy but has also been responsible for widespread human suffering due to indiscriminate attacks against the civilian population. This situation disrupted Pakistan’s normal economic and trading activities which not only resulted in higher costs of business but also created disruptions in the production cycles, resulting in significant delays in meeting......

Afghan Star

...Film Essay: Afghan Star The film Afghan Star depicts a fantastic story of how one television show began to change the way that a nation viewed their own culture. In the war-torn country of Afghanistan, the progression of art and music has been relatively stalled due to previous Taliban rule. The people there have been discouraged to express themselves in ways that seem completely normal in many Western cultures. This prevention is why the Afghan Star television show creates such a buzz and blossoms into the phenomenon that it is. This paper will delve into the narrative of this film, as well as analyze the challenges faced by both the contestants and the producers of the show. Most importantly, it will show how Afghan Star did something that no politician could accomplish and brought the peoples of a divided nation one step closer to each other. From the very outset of the show, Afghan Star was a smash hit. Its popularity grew tremendously as the competition progressed and before long almost everybody had picked a favorite contestant and was following along. The show was brought to air by a group of men including the presenter, Daoud Sediqi. He became the face of the program and was instrumental in its progression. The film focuses on four of the top contestants, Rafi Naabzada, Hameed Sakhizada, Setara Hussainzada, and Lema Sahar. The selection of these people gives the film an interesting dynamic because all four hail from different parts of Afghanistan and two of them...
