...she is teaching her daughter the value of self-worth by renting Legally Blonde or buying her a “Princess” T-shirt. But what can we expect from our society? Is girl power the best we can get? Will it actually bring about a revolution of enlightened women on an equal level with men, as some desperate feminists hope? I doubt it. As Cathy Young reminds us, for an empowering dialogue about men and women in society to succeed, it must include both men and women. I would add that it also needs to harbor active consciousness – one needn’t speak only of politics, or attend all of the nation’s rallies, but should be aware of what his or her behavior and choices says. Dancing drunk in a dark club wearing revealing clothing does not say “I respect my body,” no matter what girl power advocates might want us to think. And, as we can see from the contradictory, anti-male and Hefner-supporting, overtly sexual philosophy behind girl power, neither of these stipulations is met. Men are both shut out of the dialogue and expected, even preferred, to be objectifiers. Feminism is about equality, human rights, and choices. It does not expect all feminists to eat whole grains and organic vegetables, or cut off their hair, but it does expect some kind of consciousness, some awareness of politics, gender, and a sense of self. On the contrary, girl power is about image, prettiness, and heterosexist sexual attractiveness. I think we shouldn’t have to settle for accepting girl power as the......

Vote Democrat

...London 2 America Should Vote Democrat America should vote Democrat in the upcoming election. This will give President Obama a chance to finish what he's started and keep republicans from coming into office increasing taxes for lower and middle class families. Americans seemed happy while under the Democrat administration. The Republicans want to increase taxes for the lower and middle class Americans and lower taxes for the rich upper class Americans; which economically doesn't make sense. The Republicans also want to change the way Americans receive their Medicare by giving out vouchers. By doing this, Americans will lose some of their benefits. The Republicans seem to have no idea about the struggle of the American people. If they did, perhaps Republican candidate Mitt Romney wouldn’t have made the statement that "Forty six percent of Americans are dependent on the government" that’s evidence that the Republicans are not in touch with the American people. Over the last four years Americans seemed happy while being under the democrat administration. Businesses start booming and the economy was slowly starting to pick up. America wasn’t built in one day and certainly can't be fixed in one day. With that being stated, America should......

...ultimate legal question of nonobviousness, beyond stating that it depends on the identified underlying factual considerations.32 Identifying the differences between the patent claims at issue and the prior art is one question. Determining the amount of inventiveness a person of ordinary skill in the art would need to bridge these differences, and whether such an amount meets the nonobviousness threshold, are separate issues. The Supreme Court’s application of its new nonobviousness framework to the facts in Graham likely exacerbated the problem created by the lack of a definitional basis for the nonobviousness standard. The patent at issue in Graham concerns a spring for a plow shank, which allows the plow shank to move upwards when it hits rocks or other obstructions in the soil, thereby reducing damage to the plow.33 The Court engaged in a detailed factual analysis of the relevant prior art in plow shanks and the differences between the prior art and the claims at issue.34 The Court did not, however, analyze the Graham, 383 U.S. at 17.

The abstract is typically a short summary of the contents of the document.] | I’ve lived in Connecticut my whole life and until now I was unaware of its geological history. Admiring the landscape of the state has always been one of my great pleasures. When I traveled around the country I would compare the natural wonders of each state to my own. Besides the rocky mountains in Colorado and the white mountains of New Hampshire few places match Connecticut’s regal terrain. Growing up in Bristol I would hike up to Pinnacle Mountain in Plainville, my friends and I would stand in awe of the magnificent rock structures. In the summer I would go on vacation to Old Lyme, it was there I fell in love with the earth’s most beautiful contrasts, the ocean meeting the rock and vice a versa. But until now I never educated myself on how all this magnificence came about. In this paper I will chronologically describe the eras and events that formed Connecticut’s geologic history. The oldest rocks provide a window through time telling a story of continental collisions so powerful that they raised mountains thousands of feet high. Others reveal evidence of a slow but constant attack from the elements that wore down those same...

...neighboring town for a living. “The community relies on services accorded by the South African government. We are cognizant of the fact that our history has always been intertwined hence we do feel part of the South African community in any case we once lived together before the installation of the territorial boundaries. ” she said. Another, Simon Mazibuko was spotted at the Ngwenya border Post in the afternoon excitedly showing off his “inked” thumb and he also reiterated the sentiments of Sanelisiwe in as far as services are concerned. Simon added that his family was divided when the boundaries were enacted leaving them with a dilemma. “My grandparents are in South Africa and my parents settled a few kilometers from the family homestead. When the immigration division was set up my parents’ homestead fell on the other Swaziland side. My grandparents still recognizes themselves as Swazis and what is confusing is the understanding of what it means to be Swazi. We have been thrown in limbo not knowing where we belong exactly.” Swazis living around the border have been reported to be accessing such services as education, health – hospitals and clinic, shopping, livelihood, social grants, job opportunities etc. in South Africa. Effort by the government to discourage such conduct was futile. One local Newspaper carried out a report in January revealing that communities around border towns prefer enrolling their children into South African Secondary and High Schools to......

Instead of picking soda, the consumer might just pick up a V-8. 2. Cocoa Cola is trying to prevent New York from banding the opportunity to use stamps to buy products such as soda. The article goes on to say how Lobbyist from Cocoa Cola are trying to rally up votes to help prevent Mayer Bloomberg from going through with his suggestion. New York City and State are working with the Department of Agriculture to ban the use of food stamps to purchase sugary drinks but to allow people to buy healthy beverages such as milk or fruit juice. These articles go hand in hand because it shows how serious and how much damage these sugary beverages are causing. Too much sugar causes diabetes and obesity not only with children or adults but mostly in lower income neighborhoods. Restricting purchases made with food stamps gives the consumer the opportunity to pick a healthier choice. Although, everyone should have the freedom to buy what they want, there should be restrictions not only on food stamps but what......

Votes for Women

...How important were the activities of the Women’s suffrage movement in the decision to grant women to vote. On February the 6th 1918 women over the age of 30 who were householders or married to a householder were granted the vote in Britain. This came after 60 years of suffrage campaigns. The women’s suffrage campaign was a powerful political force by 1914. There were 56 suffrage groups and two main bodies, whom of which were national - The suffragists (NUWSS) and The Suffragettes (WSPU). This essay will analyse how far the women’s suffrage movement was responsible for women being granted the vote by comparing it to other important factors such as the changing attitudes towards women in society, the part played by women in the war effort 1914-1918 and the changes in other countries. It can be argued that the activities of the suffrage movement in the decision to grant the vote for women was a big factor but their war work perhaps had just as big a part to play and the changes in other countries perhaps also just as big an influence. Therefore it can be argued the women’s suffrage movement was important in the decision to grant women the vote. It is undeniable that the activities of the women’s suffrage movement in the decision to grant them the vote was important as they were always being spoken about and they were known nationwide. The two different groups had two completely different approaches to their cause. The campaigning methods of the NUWSS were ‘peaceful’ tactics......

Rock and Roll

...When Rock arrived on the music charts in the 1950's, a merging of African-American and White music, it made a huge impact on society. As a general rule I am not heavily into music, but I was drawn to Rock for some inexplicable reason. It is just the music I like. This genre will be difficult to write about because the origin of Rock is unclear; there are traces of Rock's style back into the 19th Century. It is also a very broad subject and I will have to compress a lot of information into as few pages as possible. Be that as it may, Rock is, in my opinion the best music genre on the charts. There is so much information on Rock that I will have to have questions I want to find the answers to about the music. My first question will be, "What instruments are commonly used in a rock band?" This will not be hard to answer as it is a very easy question that has a definite answer. The next question will be, "Who were the first artists to produce Rock music?" This is also an easy question were I will discuss the first Rockers. Continuing on, my next question will ask, "How was the term ‘Rock and Roll' created, and by who?" This may turn out to be a hard question to answer because I am sure there a multiple answers. "Has Rock become more or less popular since its inception?" will be my next question. For this question I will have to look for a survey or poll of some type and present its data. My final question will be, "How has the Music been changed over the years and who changed...

Rock Algorithm

...Introduction Clustering in data mining, is useful in discovery of distribution patterns in underlying data. Our interest is in clustering based on non-numerical data-categorical or Boolean attributes. An example of hierarchical clustering algorithm used in sample data is ROCK (RObust Clustering using linKs). The clustering technique is useful for grouping data points such that a single group or cluster have similar characteristics while different groups are dissimilar. ROCK belongs to the class of agglomerative hierarchical clustering algorithms. OCK algorithm has mainly 3 steps namely, ‘Draw random sample’, ‘Cluster with links’, ‘Label data in disk’ the steps are described in the following diagram: ROCK’s hierarchical algorithm accepts as input the set S of N sample points to be clustered, and the number of desired clusters K. The first step in the procedure is to compute the number of links between pairs of points. Initially each point is separate cluster. For each cluster i, we build a local heap q[i] and maintain the heap during the execution of the algorithm. Q[i] contains every cluster j such that link[i,j] is non-zero. The clusters j in q[i] are ordered in the decreasing order of the goodness measure with respect to I, g(i,j). In addition to the local heaps q[i] for each cluster I, the algorithm also maintains an additional global heap q that contains all the clusters. Furthermore, the clusters in q are ordered in the decreasing order of their best goodness......

30 Rock

...Tina Fey’s sitcom “30 Rock” ends tonight, dammit. I haven’t yet seen the finale (I’ll be watching it along with you screener-deficient folks), but I’m genuinely sad to lose my Thursdays with this awesomely dense comedy, which amounted to a grenade made of zingers. Sweet yet sour, at once funny ha-ha and funny-peculiar—and also funny-relevant, if that were a thing—“30 Rock” is quotable to a nearly psychotic degree. I’ll miss it like a stalker misses her stalkee. I could take pretty much any angle in looking back on “30 Rock,” but I’ll take the one that I am currently experiencing: looking straight at the Empire State Building. When the sitcom débuted, it was based on Fey’s experience as the first female head writer for “Saturday Night Live,” but it quickly became something bigger, stranger, and bolder: a surreal machine capable of commenting on anything, from feminism and prismatic perspectives on race to national politics, reality television, and corporate culture—always from a New Yorker’s P.O.V. Not that the characters were native New Yorkers, mind you, other than Tracy (who was born in Yankee Stadium and attended middle school at an Exxon station in the Bronx). The rest had moved to Manhattan from somewhere else: Pennsylvania, Florida, Massachusetts, Georgia. They were ambitious nuts who lived for their jobs, injecting the office comedy mold with both workaholism and a recurrent anxiety about what that might mean. (“I wish I’d worked more,” confessed Jack on his......
