A Victim of the Double Rape
A Victim of the Double Rape There is an old saying that goes behind every strong man is a strong woman. This proverb can be used to describe the legacy of Hernando Cortes and his conquest of Mexico. Like the proverb, he had someone behind him who aided in his goals of dominance. The woman was Dona Marina, otherwise known as La Malinche. Her beauty and intelligence made her into one of the most hated and influential women in Mexico\'s history. According to Clifford Krauss, La Malinche is for t

The Internet - Being one of millions of surfers throughout the Internet, I see that fundamental civil liberties areas important in cyberspace as they are in traditional contexts. Cyberspace defined in Webster\'sTenth Edition dictionary is the on-line worlds of networks. The right to speak and publishusing a virtual pen has its roots in a long tradition dating back to the very founding of democracyin this country. With the passage of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, Congress has preparedto turn t

The Internet In the summer of 1969, not everyone was at Woodstock. In laboratories on either side of the continent a small group of computer scientists were quietly changing the future of communication. Their goal was to build a computer network that would enable researchers around the country to share ideas (Kantrowitz 56). The Internet we make so much today -- the global Internet which has helped scholars so much, where free speech is flourishing as never before in history -- the Internet was

For example, China is attempting to restrict political expression, in the name of security and social stability. It requires users of the Internet and electronic mail (e-mail) to register, so that it may monitor their activities. In the United Kingdom, state secrets and personal attacks are off limits on the Internet. Laws are strict and the government is extremely

Germany
Germany Germany had its own unique way of life and it had a big impact on other cultures. One influence Germany had on other cultures was its food. Sausage, baked goods, and beer seem to be the most indigenous food. Most of the sausages can be eaten hot or cold such as the frankfurter. A few of the sausages, such as Bratwurst, must be cooked and a few--Schlachtwurst and Touristenwurst--eaten only when cold. Bratwurst was a pork sausage, usually cooked over an open fire.

Robots Abstract The advent of the Mind Age of intelligent robots envisioned by Hans Moravec will bring profound transformations in global social and technological structures and relations of an advanced intelligence to its environment. The ability of future machines to directly share experiences and knowledge with each other will lead to evolution of intelligence from relatively isolated individual minds to highly interconnected structural entities. The development of a network of communicating

This paper will identify current issues related to science and technology from the business, governmental, and societal perspectives. However, before we can begin to understand the advances in science and technology, we must know the definitions of them.

United States Influence in Latin America The influence of the United States on Latin America has not been largely degrading, but instead, largely beneficial to Latin America. It has helped to produce an advanced, cultured, and self-sufficient society opposed to an alien culture of materialism and selfishness. Arguments to support these statements can be made on an economic, political, social, and cultural level. The United States for a long time has held a hegemony by default and chosen to app

The electoral college system - a check on the impulsive voters of the newly formed nation - the age requirement, the citizenship clause and,

Attention needs to be focused on how and why some programming has begun to move in the right direction and why the rest has not.

This question has plagued many in years past and will continue to be a source of controversy for years to come.

Theodore Roosevelt The turn of the century has always been a big deal for modern civilizations. One hundred years of life is quite large compared with the average 70 or so given to most. Because of that, people tend to look in trends of decades, rather than centuries or millennia. When it does come time for a new century, when that second digit rotates, as it does so seldom, people tend to look for change. Events tend to fall before or after the century, not on top of it, and United States histo

This new Internet censorship bill, the Child Online Protection Act or COPA (a.k.a. CDA II), would establish criminal penalties for any commercial distribution of material deemed harmful to minors. Although I feel that this law will probably be overturned like CDA, it shows how determined some politicians are to ignore our constitutional ri

With patience, strong will, and the idea that privacy is a right of the people, he did just that, and in doing so held up a mirror to the world, showing it that it had permanently changed. The life of Phil Zimmermann is full of epic grandeur, a

The many different types of pornography pose a sobering threat to society in general and the family in particular by presenting them w

So why, one might ask, is censorship existent in this country? Censorship is clearly unconstitutional and should be nonexistent in a democratic system such as the US. There are many sources where c
