  • Cocaine Cocaine When you reach into the refrigerator for a Coca-Cola, do you ever wonder where it got its name? You might be surprised to find out!

  • Beginning Of House Music Early House To trace the origins of today’s house music, one needs to time travel back to the 80’s, following a bizarre trail that spans the Atlantic ocean, hits the Mediterranean dance floors of Ibiza, sneak into the backdoors of New York’s recording studios, and have V.I.P. passes to the clubs of Chicago and London. Since we can’t deliver any of that, here’s a brief retelling of the birth of modern dance music. House music’s earliest roots are found in the musical hots

  • Dna DNA evidence is extremely helpful in criminal trials not only because it can determine the guilt of a suspect, but also because it can keep innocent people from going to jail. The suspect must leave a sample of their DNA at the crime scene in order for testing to occur, but DNA can be found in the form of many things such as semen, blood, hair, saliva, or skin scrapings. According to Newsweek, thousands of people have been convicted by DNAs nearly miraculous ability to search out suspects

  • Should Suspects Be Forced To Provide Samples For Dna Testing? Police forces consider DNA testing to be the biggest break through of the century in solving crime.

The Justice Minister then had announced plans to i


  • The Supreme Court System The Supreme Court System The justices determine which cases to take. They never explain the reason for their choices. Whether or not a case is accepted strikes me as a rather subjective decision, made up in part of intuition and in part of legal judgment, Rehnquist wrote in The Supreme Court: How It Was, How It Is, his 1987 book about the court. Important factors, he said, are whether the legal question has been decided differently by two lower courts and needs resolutio

High-priced software, high-quality music, and valuable reference material such as computerized databases or CD-Rom encyclopedias are commercial products like any other, but the media of their transmission makes them different in at least one aspect: it is possible to copy them freely, or at least extremely cheaply. A compact disc of Elvis Costello and the Attractions is different from, say,

Most types of cancer cells form a lump or mass called a tumor. Cells from the tumor can break away and travel to other parts of the body where they can continue to grow. This spreading process is called metastasis. When cancer spreads, it is still named after the part of the body where it started. For example, if breast cancer spreads to t


  • What Is In Mars Did life exist on Mars? What would it take to build a spaceship that could travel at the speed of light? When will the moon be colonized?

  • URBAN, MIDDLE-CLASS TEENAGERS, IN THE DECADE OF THE ‘DOT’. INTRODUCTION- Welcome to the decade of the dot. That tiny bit of Internet grammar whose ubiquity in e-mail addresses and web URLs so neatly captures the giddying impact of technology on our lives at the century’s launch.

Today, the Internet is a more potent medium than

Midwifery should be re-instated as a legal and honourable profession. With healthy pregnancies and

  • Mp3 Piracy In this digital world, the idea of obtaining any materialistic pleasures with a computer is simply amazing to me. It initiates an already growing problem with scarcity and unlimited wants. The fact that everyone with a computer could have free music all the time is quite appealing?

This seems to be the hidden question behind all the other piracy-related jarg

  • Waking Up From A Midsummer Night\'s Dream As with every play we read this quarter, we started A Midsummer Night s Dream with only a text. Reading the script is the foundation of Shakespeare, and the least evolved of the ways that one can experience it. There is no one to interpret the words, no body movement o!r voice inflection to indicate meaning or intention. All meaning that a reader understands comes from the words alone. The simplicity of text provides a broad ground for imagination, in th
