Willa Cather

Her life, which was directly influential to her writing, was of a simple nature. However, she was able to over come a drab, mundane life, and turn her experiences into stories that would be enjoyed by many generations. Willa Siebert Cather was born in her maternal grandm...

Nutrition
“You are what you eat”, goes a famous saying. If that’s truly the case, then a lot of Americans would appear to be unhealthy, chemically treated, commercially raised slabs of animal flesh. While that is not a particularly pleasant thought, it is nonetheless a description of the typical American omnivore who survives on the consumption of big macs and greasy french fries. It’s true, and what have the average Americans done about this problem? Asked for seconds and tell themselves that the...

Ernest Hemingway
“Today on the five o’clock news a man goes on a rampage at the office leaving five dead.” As I flip on the TV, I see another top story! A man has killed others at his workplace and taken his own life. This is becoming very old. I begin to think, “what could push this person to the point where they feel that it is necessary to take the lives of innocent people?” Even more disturbing, what could drive a person to the point that they believe it is necessary to end their own life? What c...

Columbian Drug Mules: A Look at Gender
Drug trafficking has long existed as a business prevalent in Latin countries; it is not a surprise to hear about new drug busts off the coast of Miami coming from Cuba or in other areas in the United States after travel from Columbia, Brazil, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Bolivia, and even Mexico. Cocaine and heroin, two of the major drugs smuggled into the nation through intense security and unfathomable measures, find refuge in these Latin countries, where they are manufactured and assembled for depo...

He is one of the few remaining practitioners of the five-hour, two-bottle lunch. I kno...

Film Flow and Globalisation
In this paper, DR. ARUP RATAN GHOSH puts cinema into the orbit of Globalisation. The context and texts of ‘identity’, MTV, beauty contest, cocacolaisation, localism, regionalism and nationalism, Amartya Sen’s notion on globalisation, block-buster films and cinema in general come with a serious approach to state the global matter of fact of the moving images. Be it the playfulness of zapping the satellite television or surfing the Internet or jiving with the music of foreign tune the exper...
