Aggressive Driving Aren't you of just tired, getting late to work or even being stuck in traffic for the tremendous hours that you always spend in traffic cause by a car crash or a police officer pull over some car so everybody is just slowing down. There's been too many car crashes or people getting pull over and getting citations. If only people will actually wake up earlier they wouldn’t be in a hurry to work. (Why police officers or the county police Station haven’t got aggressive in giving out citations.)
There's been a lot of Car Crashes in all the streets of each city and every day. That sometimes causes to people get late to their destination and people sometimes actually get frustrated behind the steering wheel without the traffic moving as fast as usual. What causes that is people start getting frustrated start cutting off people from another lane the other person gets mad, and now that car is probably going to try and cut off that same car that cut her off. It just gets worse and worse sometimes people are in one lane and they have to get off in one specifically and their on the last lane, and the people won’t let her pass so she can take that exit, even if you have your signal lights on, people will actually ignore you or even just throw you their vehicle. Of course to not hit that car you have to stay in that particular lane and try and try and get off the next exit.
There not many ways how to solve the problem or even that lets keep it this way, there’s No way you can solve this problem. You can only lower the percentage of the car crashes of each city. But that probably be it because there's a lot of ways how to have an accident sometimes people get distracted by phones, texting and driving. Some Girls are just too busy doing their make up while driving, and it’s not only the girls…...

It includes a table that illustrates significant examples of the various features. It also includes the elements of culture such as government, geographical terrain, economics and trade practices, art, architecture, philosophical and religious beliefs. Elements | Greek | Roman | Government and geographical terrain | Is a Mediterranean country. But Greek city states were separated by hilly country sides and water. “Greece communities began to organize themselves and exercise authority over their own limited geographical regions, which were defined by natural boundaries- mountains, rivers, and plains (Henry Sayre, 2013, pg 49)”. Greeks had many different types of governments. They all changed over time due to new beliefs or ideas. “Greece began by having monarchies, then oligarchies, then tyrannies and then democracies, but at each period there were plenty of city stated using a different system, and there were many which never did become democracies or tyrannies at all ( History for kids, 2012)”. That could because of a lot of things, distance from the other Greek city’s, population, production, etc. | Is a Mediterranean country. Rome was an inland country on the side of the Tiber river.

Defining the Humanities Paper

...Defining the Humanities According to textbook, The Creative Impulse, humanities is defined as “aspects of culture that look into the human spirit.” Humanities traditionally include the study of the arts, music, theater, dance, language, literature, and history. Many humanists like to dig deeper within the topic of history to look at technology and “early scientific thought.” The main focus of the study of humanities is to better understand what it means to think, feel, be motivated, take action, and to simply be human. We live in a very technologically advanced world today and sometimes we take the things we own for granted. We have computers and microscopic technology that run our lives on a daily basis from our alarm clocks in the morning, to communication throughout our day on our smart phones. If you take a second to look back in the past and see all of the accomplishments past civilizations made without the advanced gadgets that we have today, it should make you wonder and really open your eyes. The study of humanities is designed for people to use their minds and to draw connections to things they never knew before. As a child, my parents forced me to attend Thai school during the summer, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. all the way until 5 p.m. They signed me up for two courses, Thai language classes until 2 p.m. and Thai dancing that last three hours for a total of two months. At first, I was very mad because I never got a summer break like the rest of my......

...has a specific set of ideas and customs, and a certain set of items and arts, that make it unique.  Humanities fits into the discussion when it comes to civilization because it has a lot to do with the human experience, which in turn adds to our knowledge about our world. We learn about the values of different cultures, what goes into making a work of art and also how history is made. Today, humanistic knowledge continues to provide the ideal foundation for exploring and understanding the human experience. Today we think of humanities as those areas concerned with the advances in science, math, engineering, psychology, and other disciplines and professions when those advances are understood as a part of our culture. There are numerous ways to approach the humanities; one is the way of arts. Arts play a large role in the expression of our inner thoughts. From dance and music to abstract art, our concept of life is shown through the various ways in which we interpret it. The arts play a valued role in creating cultures and developing and documenting civilizations. They teach us how to communicate through creative expression, show us how to understand human experiences, past and present. Prepare us to adept to and respect the ways others think, work, and express them. As we deepen our understanding of the arts, we necessarily deepen our understanding of values. Without humanities in civilization, most civilizations would not have flourished the way that most have. From the......

...Stonehenge. A famous Neolithic monument is said to have been built in several phases (Trachtenberg, 2012). One design that has baffled noted scientist and historians, would be how did at the time Stonehenge was created, did the creators construct the monument so accurate? 4. Photography When life finds its way into our hearts, we sometimes smile, laugh, morn and cry, we see life for what it is and it is always amazing. No matter how much time goes by, there are some pictures that will always makes us cry, give us hope and remind us of humanity. This picture by Charles Porter won him a Nobel Prize. As Firefighter Chris Fields held this dying baby in his arms, brought forth what this first terror to our land and how it will affect us as a nation for all time (World's famous, 2007). 5. Printmaking Japanese Woodblock Print has been around for centuries, born of a combination of wood and other objects such as paper, foil, fabric and thin tile. Much like many of us did as we grew up, rubbing on Gravestones and textured walls. Most of these creations take more than one person to create on work of art (Brooklyn Museum, 2012). 6. Conceptual Art This becomes a point of view where the artist shares in such a way were we might tilt our heads to gain perspective.

...charged swollen shapes, an epitome of abundant fertility and of eternal sex. She was the woman of all women. For Paleolithic people, accentuating the parts that dealt with reproduction mattered most in the figurines, which is why the breasts and pelvic area were exaggerated most, unlike the buttocks. The artist’s goal was to draw the most attention to those parts. During this era, food was scare so obesity was unlikely. This led artists to believe the sculptor worked from a model, creating a body worth ritualization. Mattel® Barbie Over the years, Barbie, or Barbie doll, has become a household name for many American families, as well as throughout the world. So, where the idea of Barbie derive?

...Michelle Castillo Semester 2 ENC 1102 Negean Mohi Paper Two Final 1 February 2012 Humanity Humans will never be fully rational. Of course some are more irrational than others, but we all have a weakness in something that leads us to making decisions based on emotion. If you look closely, in today’s world being rational usually leads to more financial success and can sometimes be interpreted for cold hearted. After reading Mary Roach and Joan Didion’s article, Roach would be labeled as harsh, the rational one, and Didion would be labeled as sympathetic and relatable, the irrational one. Many readers are more capable to putting themselves in Didion’s shoes, many of us would not be able to view things the way Roach does. “If you really want to stay up late worrying about lawsuits and bad publicity, explode a bomb near the body of someone who has willed his remains to science” (Roach 358). Mary Roach mentions this quote in her article when describing the personal consequences when considering cadavers. When describing the situation, Roach focused on the political concerns, complaining about the burden it does to herself other bearing in mind the cadaver’s family feelings. Her sarcasm would normally offend most readers, however, some of us wouldn’t know how to react because we simply just don’t understand the complexity of life. This is because the same type of people are everywhere, whether they are in a rural area, a big city, or another country, we're all...

...Humanities and Its Value Many times when a person is asked about humanities he may not know exactly what the teacher is asking. “Humanities?” the student may think without realizing how profound and useful it is within the world. Humanities can include many different studies upon the world, in its most general description it is a complete study of human ideas and expressions with emphasis on both developing techniques and skills for studying art, as well as learning about actual artistic creations. Stanley Fish whom argued that Humanities is merely not a tool but a whole category of its own that is taught is most likely hitting the nail on the head. Intriguingly enough, Humanities is useful in its own way of studies of our interpretations through art, music and other categories of historic pieces. For example, throughout the world people may look at a piece and start interpreting it, while referring to its historic features such as the work of Yun Gee’s painting, the Lone Ranger. The lone Ranger is a painting in which has a historic value which refers to the time period where Chinese were migrating towards the U.S. during the time of the gold rush. They were merely looked down upon as workers because of how they looked and acted. Through the use of humanities people may look at this painting and come up with ideas, “Why did Yun Gee decide to paint this man the way that he did?” “What was the reason for the color in the background and the setting that it has taken place in...

China's long history has seen many extremely important ancient inventions and tremendous contributions to the world's economy and the culture of mankind. They were also important symbols of China's role as a great world civilization. Ancient China has many inventions and contributions, the 10 useful ones are identified as follows; Paper making is believed to be invented first in China. The proper paper making is one of the China's significant contributions to the development of human civilization. The paper was first made during the Western Han Dynasty (202 BC). Another invention was a movable typing printing. The world's first printings were invented in China in the Tang Dynasty (618-907 BC). Chinese began to print mainly with carved blocks. Gunpowder is a mixture of sulfur, charcoal and potassium nitrate. It was used in firearms and as a pyrotechnic in fireworks. It was a useful invention that contributed to the advancement of generating large amount of heat and gas. Chinese also invented the compass. A compass is a navigational instrument that shows directions in a frame of reference that is stationary relative to the surface of the earth.

Humanities 111 Term Paper

...A Trip To China Is What The Doctor Ordered Humanities 111 February 2 2013 China is definitely on the top of my list of countries I could only dream to visit. There is so much that I know I can learn if given the opportunity to visit such a great country. Even today, China is home to the greatest inventions and works in the world. They are considered to be much more advanced in technology and products than the rest of the world. We have many things today in this world that is all because of Chinese discoveries and inventions. From spices to material to gun powder and paper making, we have inventors of ancient China to thank. Gun powder, printing, paper making, the compass, porcelain, silk, tea and medicine are some of the greatest contributions given to the world and I know exactly which ones I would want to see the history on when first arriving to China. Gun powder is the first on my personal list of greatest contributions or inventions from the ancient Chinese. Gun powder was discovered when alchemists from china got the idea when dealing with sulfur and other substances. They are said to have been used in some military application during the Tang Dynasty. Some argue that without guns there would be no violence and without gun powder there would be no guns I have to disagree. Guns are only used for violence when they end up in the wrong people’s hand. Guns can be used for hunting which feeds hunters and their families. Guns are used as part of......

It is typically a short summary of the document. When you’re ready to add your content, just click here and start typing.] Kimberly Watkins Kimberly Watkins Over the last 12 weeks I have spent a lot of time pondering the questions that have been presented in this course. What is the meaning of life? How do we live a meaningful life? Is there a meaning at all? Before this course, I can honestly say that these questions never really entered my mind. I always felt that I was here for a reason, but I could never clearly define what that reason was. Perhaps I never will. I grew up in a household where religion did not exist, my parents had been catholic in their younger years but throughout time they had lost their faith. They never prevented me from engaging myself in organized religion, but I had always found myself drawn to more of a non-believing science based thought process. Growing up I believed that I was an atheist which is simply defined as “a person who denies or disbelieves the existence of a supreme being or beings” (Merriam Webster, 2014). But that definition is so rigid and unmoving, and......

... MODULE 1: INTRODUCTION This module provides an overview on the subject of art appreciation for those entirely new to the subject. This is a complex topic to deal with and it is impossible to have a truly comprehensive discussion on the topic in such a brief essay. The student is advised to consult more advanced texts to gain further understanding of how to appreciate art more fully. HUMANITIES: What is it? • The term Humanities comes from the Latin word, “humanitas” • It generally refers to art, literature, music, architecture, dance and the theatre—in which human subjectivity is emphasized and individual expressiveness is dramatized. HOW IMPORTANT IS HUMANITIES • The fields of knowledge and study falling under humanities are dedicated to the pursuit of discovering and understanding the nature of man. • The humanities deal with man as a being of purpose, of values, loves, hates, ideas and sometimes as seer or prophet with divine inspiration. • The humanities aim at educating. THE ARTS: What is it? • The word “art” usually refers to the so-called “fine arts” (e.g. pictorial, plastic, and building)– and to the so-called “minor arts” (everyday, useful, applied, and decorative arts) • The word “art” is derived from arti, which denotes craftsmanship, skill, mastery of form, inventiveness. • Art serves as a technical and creative record of human needs and achievements. The word 'art' is often used in our daily lives. However,......
