The so-called revolutions of 1848 were but poor incidents — small fractures and fissures in the dry crust of European society. However, they denounced the abyss. Beneath the apparently solid surface, they betrayed oceans of liquid matter, only needing expansion to rend into fragments continents of hard rock. Noisily and confusedly they proclaimed the emancipation of the Proletarian, i.e. the secret of the 19th century, and of the revolution of that century.

That social revolution, it is true, was no novelty invented in 1848. Steam, electricity, and the self-acting mule were revolutionists of a rather more dangerous character than even citizens Barbés, Raspail and Blanqui. But, although the atmosphere in which we live, weighs upon every one with a 20,000 lb. force, do you feel it? No more than European society before 1848 felt the revolutionary atmosphere enveloping and pressing it from all sides. There is one great fact, characteristic of this our 19th century, a fact which no party dares deny.

On the one hand, there have started into life industrial and scientific forces, which no epoch of the former human history had ever suspected. On the other hand, there exist symptoms of decay, far surpassing the horrors recorded of the latter times of the Roman Empire. In our days, everything seems pregnant with its contrary: Machinery, gifted with the wonderful power of shortening and fructifying human labour, we behold starving and overworking it; The newfangled sources of wealth, by some strange weird spell, are turned into sources of want; The victories of art seem bought by the loss of character.

At the same pace that mankind masters nature, man seems to become enslaved to other men or to his own infamy. Even the pure light of science seems unable to shine but on the dark background of ignorance. All our invention and progress seem to result in endowing material…...

People's Belief in Ghost

...People’s Belief in Ghost Have you ever walked down a dark alley at midnight? If so, maybe you started hearing strange sounds or voices without seeing someone there. Suddenly, a dog starts barking at nothing and you felt a cold shiver down your backbone for no apparent reason. If you experienced these things, it could be a good reason to believe in ghosts. Theoretically, a ghost is the soul of a person who has died and somehow has gotten stuck between two worlds. Normally, they do not know that they are dead and they still live amongst us. A ghost can be perceived by the senses of living people, such as by sight (apparition), hearing (sound, voice) and touch. Many stories have documented that ghosts are real but many people think they are just people’s illusions. Ghost is a popular topic throughout the millennium. They have appeared in numerous works and art forms, from the play “Macbeth” by Shakespeare to the Christian Bible and even some folk ghost stories have been released. The existence of ghosts was still a big mystery of mankind over hundreds of years. Some people believe in ghosts while others do not. To convince people of the existence of ghosts, there are several stories that can be told. One of them is the United States White House’s haunted story. The White House, where the United States President lives and work, has long been considered as the worst haunted place in that country. Harry Truman, America’s 33rd president, had affirmed......

In Other People's Words

...October 2003 In Other (People’s) Words: plagiarism by university students—literature and lessons CHRIS PARK, The Graduate School, Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK ABSTRACT This paper reviews the literature on plagiarism by students, much of it based on North American experience, to discover what lessons it holds for institutional policy and practice within institutions of higher education in the UK. It explores seven themes: the meaning and context of plagiarism, the nature of plagiarism by students, how do students perceive plagiarism, how big a problem is student plagiarism, why do students cheat, what challenges are posed by digital plagiarism and is there a need to promote academic integrity? It is concluded that plagiarism is doubtless common and getting more so (particularly with increased access to digital sources, including the Internet), that there are multiple reasons why students plagiarise and that students often rationalise their cheating behaviour and downplay the importance of plagiarism by themselves and their peers. It is also concluded that there is a growing need for UK institutions to develop cohesive frameworks for dealing with student plagiarism that are based on prevention supported by robust detection and penalty systems that are transparent and applied consistently. Introduction Much has been written on the theme of plagiarism by students, particularly in the context of North American experience. This paper reviews that literature in...

Car and American People's Life

...industry has long been an important support to the country’s development. Automobile manufacturing industry in the United States has a long history, and the lives of every American may be associated with the automotive industry. Why Americans cannot live without car manufacturing industries? Obviously, the answer is the automotive industry in the United States began in 1895 (Klepper 5). That was 115 years ago, this is a very long time, it can be said that the U.S. automobile industry had a great impact on society.

Automotive bring the American people's lives a lot easier and faster. The American people have so many cars, and what does that mean? Obviously, this means that people will spend a lot of money on the car. If you have a car, you have to buy gasoline, you have to repair cars, and you have to pay other costs. This will help the country’s economic development. Not only the United States has a long history of car manufacturing, but also has some very well-known car companies.

There are also studies showing that the concept of the concept of contradiction can be modified during psychiatric treatment.

Therefore, government should prioritize on ensuring it’s nation is healthy. Government reluctance on health issues can cost any nation a fortune. However, government involvement should cover all sectors of the health department. The government should prioritize these sectors, for example: FDA, disease control, and many more. Concerns have been raised concerning smoking, drinking and eating habits as they are the main causes of death in the world today. Diseases related to unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking, poor diet, and GMO’s are rampant in developed countries. While, trying to unearth the truth about unhealthy habits, the ideal posed in this paper has most health professionals and government officers have been struggling to answer. It is morally correct to have the government regulate personal choices on the above raised problems. As mentioned early, mortality rate caused by unhealthy habits is staggering.

Education: a Means to Enrich People’s Lives

...myself as a person and that I must pressure my professors of these classes to show me how this information will enrich my own life when I cannot determine it on my own. Throughout my entire educational experience, there have been several moments where I was challenged to think about how the material could affect my life in ways I would have not thought of on my own. The most memorable of these lessons came from a reading assignment in my 9th grade English class. It is important to note that leading up to this assignment I had little interest in the class and its subject matter and I viewed the class simply as a means to an end. This was until my teacher had assigned the class to read the poem, If by Rudyard Kippling, and write a one-page paper on what the poem meant to us on a personal level. After reading the poem, my outlook on what it meant to be a man and how I should live my life drastically changed. It was this poem that led me to realize that being a man was not about material possessions or being what society deemed as “successful”, but instead, I learned that being a man was about how a person carries themself in good and bad situations. To this day I have that poem posted next to the light switch in my room and find myself reading it from time to time whenever I feel like I need some guidance. This poem is has become so important to me that I often refer to it as my “bible”(mostly because I am not religious and like to use it as a tool for guidance on how to live......

Tata Nano: the People's Car

...developed the Nano, the world's cheapest car. The case focuses on the translation of Ratan Tata's (chairman of Tata Motors) vision of a safe affordable car for the masses by Ravi Kant, managing director of Tata Motors into the Nano Project. The case raises questions around breaking the price-quality barrier and changing existing internal processes to accommodate revolutionary new ideas. The dilemma of success—Tata Nano was a runaway bestseller—left Tata Motors debating how large a bet they should make on the Nano and what kind of capacity commitment this requires. Never before in the history had, a new product in the automobile industry created such a huge buzz after Ford's famous Model ‘T’. Ever since Ratan Tata announced that he would make a ‘People’s car’ for a price less than $ 2,500, in 2003 Geneva Auto show, it mystified various groups of people about the possibility of price, power, quality, performance and other factors. However, Ratan Tata was never to be bogged down with by apprehensions and or naysayers. During 2008, Nano was all over the press for the wrong reasons and that probably would have been a blessing in disguise for Nano’s buzz and all the critics were are silenced for ever when the car was launched on March 23rd 2009 with various public and private sector banks offering loans to customers. Nano and Ratan Tata became almost synonymous providing India Inc. in general and Tata Group in particular a global corporate canvass. It definitely was the most......

...with some improvements of course. Its wide use has also allowed this product to construct others things as well, with government involvement laws were passed for the safety for all involved. The aqueducts also gave the United States the ability to transfer much needed water to place such as farms, homes, hospitals and public facilities, and the disposal of it waste. I would say the government benefited also, by establishing programs to assist those who was poor, by passing laws for States to help these people with food, school and health. These programs made for a stronger America and allowed the people to have confidence in their government. This program is still in use today even though improvements are constantly made. The last area is paper which came a long way from the past. Now we are able to store documents on a smaller scale than before, this was important for record keeping, and history, one was able to go back and see what improvement needed to be made by looking at pass records.

The United Stated government, engineers, teachers, scientist, architectures, physicians all took these inventions and improved them after carefully looking at each one, made a decision on how they could be used to make us the great country that we are today. Especially our military, by giving a physical to all who desired to serve in it. The United States became world power by taking these inventions and......

What Begins People’s Discovery of Science?

...Topic: What begins people’s discovery of science? Thesis: “Hypotheses non fingo,” Newton confidently claimed. Therefore, he arbitrarily excluded the “hypothesis” from the experimental philosophy. Affected by him, more and more remarks neglected the importance of the “hypotheses” since then. As a result, it becomes a common view that discovery should proceed from analytic methods stricto sensu. Then, what is the real definition of hypothesis in Newton’s opinion ? Will he believe in intuition? Therefore, I will try to explain the definition of both “hypothesis” and “intuition”, and then attach significance to the “intuition” to show how the intuition begins a new discovery of science and struggle to prove that sometimes, the intuition can be a quite strong power to lead us to reach our confirmations. Outline: 1. The moment when I realize the importance of the intuition (Faraday) 2. The definition of hypothesis and intuition 3. The supporter- Einstein (using his examples as detailed ones) 4. The other famous successful discoveries in four different fields: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography (describing the main story of each example) 5. How should we treat the intuition? What should we do after the intuition? 6. The conclusion includes 1) The importance of the intuition, 2) The significant role it has acted in the history of science, 3) Its efficiency of finding a certain answer, 4) An interesting analogy to show the role of......

Why Does Stress Should Be Reduced in People’s Live?

...Tuan Le ENGL 101 Feb 25, 2016 Why Does Stress Should Be Reduced in People’s Live? In modern life, stress is so common that it has become a part of life. Stress is not always bad. Stress with positive force can help us perform under pressure, motivate us to do our best such as studying for exam, working with deadline or a job interview. However, when stress is a negative force, it can adversely affect everything in our live such as health, mood, relationship and quality of life. Therefore, stress is a harmful force, and it should be reduced in people’s live. Let’s talk about stress. Stress is body’s way of responding to many kind of demand, and it can be caused by both good and bad experiences. In addition, stress happens when people can’t face with pressure, and this pressure can be in many shapes and forms. But, a negative stress can cause may horrible physiological reactions for people.

A Patriot's History Versus a People's History

...A People’s History Versus A Patriot’s History Public consensus, similar to politics, varies greatly when it comes to American history, especially as it pertains to the classroom. Views about the content and historical interpretation included in history texts have reached a heightened polarization in recent years. This can be seen in the vast differences between the diatribes of Howard Zinn’s, A People’s History of the United States, and Larry Schweikart and Michael Allen’s, A Patriot’s History of the United States. While both books, prescribed by this introductory course into American History, cover many of the same topics, they clearly paint different pictures. I feel that any text seeking to represent a responsible survey of a subject, should strive to include a full range of views on a particular issue. There is no question that this requirement is fulfilled by the inclusion of both books. However, if one book would need to be selected over the other, my choice would be Schweikart and Allen’s. This is simply because I believe their book offers more facts and details surrounding the historical events in question. In an age where political perspective is often spoon-fed to us by dueling cablenews networks and political talk-radio shows, it is no wonder that our nation’s history is a hot topic for debate. A common perspective in conservative circles is that liberals seek to use the educational system to indoctrinate the nation’s youth. Although, a current issue in......

Economy of the People's Republic of China

...Economy of the People's Republic of China The People's Republic of China is the world's second largest economy after the United States. It is the world's fastest-growing major economy, with average growth rates of 10% for the past 30 years. China is also the largest exporter and second largest importer of goods in the world. China became the world's top manufacturer in 2011, surpassing the United States. For 2010, inbound foreign direct investment into China surpassed $100bn for the first time, and investment overseas by Chinese companies in non-financial sectors totaled $59 billion. The country's per capita GDP is $7,518 in 2010. The provinces in the coastal regions of China tend to be more industrialized, while regions in the hinterland are less developed. As China's economic importance has grown, so has attention to the structure and health of that economy. In the modern era, China's influence in the world economy was minimal until the late 1980s. At that time, economic reforms initiated after 1978 began to generate significant and steady growth in investment, consumption and standards of living. China now participates extensively in the world market and private sector companies play a major role in the economy. Since 1978 hundreds of millions have been lifted out of poverty: According to China's official statistics, the poverty rate fell from 53% in 1981 to 2.5% in 2005. However, in 2006, 10.8% of people still lived on less than $1 a day (purchasing power......
