The many partygoers crowd the narrow sidewalks, stumbling and leaning on each other for support. This is the typical Friday night in State College.

Revolution Girl-Style Now!
Revolution Girl-Style Now! Riot Grrrls were originally born out of the “Punk” scene where rebellion was expressed in attitude, appearance, style, and music. Defining Riot Grrrl is much like defining Punk. There is no central organization, no authoritive definition, just an attitude concerned with pointing out social hypocrisy and empowering people to “do it yourself”, creating a culture of their own when they see that the mainstream media does not reflect their concerns or provide outlets for th

Bodily Resurrection and 1 Corinthians 15: 42-54
Bodily Resurrection and 1 Corinthians 15: 42-54 By: Joe Scholar One of the most significant issues concerning nearly all religions, Christianity among them, concerns the fate of men following their death. Believing in an inevitable resurrection of the body among the faithful, Paul, a principle founder of Christianity, asserted his beliefs on the nature of bodily resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15: 42-54. As eternity tends to last a long time, believing Christians (even agnostics such as myself) wo

The differences in the way that the poet sees the relationship between the beach and the sea and the way that most people would see it become more pronounced as the poem develops. He also uses the change in attitude from the first stanza to the last to emphasize his message. The poem starts with the normal image one would expect of a beach and a peaceful moonlit nigh

Caligula
Caligula “The rule of Caligula proved the disastrous capacity of an autocratic system of government.” Caligula’ contempt for the senate, his growing need for more power and his unstable methods of ruling made an autocratic system of government unworkable. By looking at his administrative techniques, financial control, frontier policies, personal leadership qualities and his life in general the above statement will be validated. Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus (Caligula) represents a turning poi

As explained by the natural selection theory presented by some economists, firms that do not seek to maximize profits may be forced to close their doors when competitors offer higher-quality products to consumers (Ruffin & Gregory 135). Further, in Adam Smith’s view of capitalism, firms must pursue their self-intere
