Privacy Matters in America
In the United States today the government tries to interfere in private lives. There should be no more laws made letting the government interfere in the private lives of people and if there are, people should stand up against this invasion in people’s privacy and sat no. Should the government have the right to interfere in people’s private lives? Does being a part of a representative democracy mean that people can give up their freedom to make their own choices to benefit other people?
I believe any laws made interfering in peoples should be rejected by the people. People should have the courage to say no. I would say no to anymore laws imposing their ways and beliefs on Americans i think people should say no due to the fact that people should not be told what to do with their money especially when they are not doing anything wrong. People should not have to take the burden of other people and have taxes risen. I do not believe that this is what our founding fathers intended the United States government responsibilities to be.
Should the government have the right to interfere in people’s private lives? Democracy guarantees freedom. One might then argue that a government should allow people to act according to their own free will. But, there are always two sides to everything. Absolute independence might not lead to anything productive in a society like ours. There needs to be a basic framework of rules and guidelines in which all participants in society should agree to.
According to Thomas Hobbes, “human nature is that if there were no rules or law enforcing institutions, it would be a war of every man against every man.”The government needs to regulate the activities of individuals in a way that the freedom guaranteed by democracy to all the people is not destroyed by selfish acts of few people.”
Apart from the protection of these basic rights to the people I believe that the government interference in our private lives in...
...will eventually concede and start actually paying attention to it for some “entertainment”. I eventually kept saying the same thing to myself; “This part of the city, this hotel, and those robbers would be all in better conditions not just economically but generally, if our elected officials (at the state and federal levels) didn’t always spend their time arguing or campaigning, but actually trying to work together to make life better for the citizens of the United States” (REWORD).
The more I developed opinions, the more I really looked forward to working shifts there -- it was a place to sit down and watch the news, once a week. To get involved in the government, through knowledge and awareness.
By June 2012, the hotel was set to be shut down and demolished by the state in pursuit of a massive highway reconstruction project on US-31. Walking out of the doors for the last time in 8 years, the doors I smeared my fingerprints on as a hyper 7 year old and cleaned as a 14 year old, I was set on what I wanted to do as an adult -- public service, in the government. I want to serve one day as a representative of the people, one that focuses in the end on addressing the issue and compromising, for the sake of our future.
A friend of mine at school, whose political views I share, suggested that I start a CHS Young Democrats club. I consider myself a Democrat -- but I saw that club as the last thing I would ever...
...“Outrageous Invasions: Celebrities’ PrivateLives, Media and the Law” is a book by Professor Robin D Barnes. Public people nowadays are being stalked, harassed and are not being able to protect their privatelives, which is clearly a violation of their constitutional rights. In this book author analyzes the role and nature of privacy in United States and Europe, how celebrities’ privatelives are being protected on both sides of ocean. Professor Barnes expresses her concerns of how press corporations are being protected by the law in United States, and their negative influence on credibility of media.
Author analyzes development in cases both in United States Supreme Court and the High Courts of Europe. From these cases we can see that in U.S. celebrities are entitled to, but not receiving, the same protection as celebrities in Europe. Barnes notes that the right for privacy is equally important as speech rights, so while insuring protection for freedom of expression we also should value privacy and equality.
Professor Barnes starts the book with the analysis of Case of Von Hannover v. Germany. According to author this surprising legal victory after more than ten years of battle with media defendants had big influence not only in Europe, but also internationally. This lawsuit brought a lot of media attention and debates about media and celebrities relation.

The Fossil Fuels in Our Life
Fossil fuels are fuels that are formed by natural processes. The process responsible for the formation is mostly anaerobic decomposition of buried dead organisms. Fossil fuels have a high percent of carbon atoms. It takes millions of years for the dead animals to decompose to fossil fuels. 
FORMATION OF FOSSIL FUELS
Coal is formed form dead plant material. Crude oil and natural gas are formed form dead marine organisms. Crude oil is found trapped in some of the sedimentary rocks of the Earth’s crust. Millions of years ago, huge numbers of microscopic animals and plants died and fell to the bottom of the sea. Their remains were covered by mud. As the mud sediment was buried by more sediment, it started to change into rock as the temperature and pressure increased. The plant and animal remains were ‘cooked’ by this process, and slowly changed into crude oil. 
TYPES OF FOSSIL FUELS
Basically there are three different types of fossil fuels.
Coal is a solid fossil fuel formed over millions of years by decay of land vegetation. When layers are compacted and heated over time, deposits are turned into coal. Coal is quite abundant compared to the other two fossil fuels. Coal is usually extracted in mines. 
Oil is a liquid fossil fuel that is formed from the remains of marine microorganisms deposited on the sea floor. After millions of years the deposits end up in...

Tweets. Status updates. Instagram. This lingo did not exist ten years ago. Now it seems to have become part of daily language. Today’s technology advancements have certainly hurled us into a new generation, but they seem to be intruding on daily life. Through social media, smartphones and tablet devices, Americans have become reliant on technology today. As the media landscape continues to evolve, we need to set limits on our networking world by restricting the use social media within our culture and ensuring people are using this technology appropriately.
First, take a look at the social media websites. Facebook and Twitter are currently two of the largest social networking sites in the world. Almost every day millions of people use social media, and sites like them, to establish communications between friends and co-workers. It seems that there is a new shift in how people communicate. With this new communication, there comes a price when it is used negatively. We all know about someone getting fired from their job because they posted something bad on Facebook. People are spending more time communicating online, rather than in person. Individuals are getting accustomed to being able to speak their mind with no immediate repercussions. According to an article published by Webfly, “Research finds that the more friends one has on Facebook, the less...
...distracting, the Internet is more dangerous for us than we think and could lead to enduring side affects.
Just about a generation ago, the Internet entered ourlives and made researching easier than ever. The idea first came around in 1962, when J.C.R. Licklider of MIT discussed his “Galactic Network” idea. From social networking to shopping, you can do almost anything on the Internet nowadays. Long before the Internet, the telegraph, telephone, radio, and computer were invented. In other words, humans were capable of progressing and inventing even before the Internet existed. This proves that we don’t have to rely on the Internet fully.
The Internet prevents actual learning and gives us fast information that doesn’t stick to our minds unless were highly interested. Instead of reading a book and looking up information that we don’t know, we Google everything and get a fast answer. We instantly receive so much information it’s overwhelming and won’t stick. I remember growing up as a kid and doing my homework with the television on. I really wish I never did that when I was a child because now I have trouble doing homework without any noise. It is safe to say that my generation loves to multitask.
Not only does the Internet have an effect on your brain, but also on your body. Perhaps the worst effect it can have on our brains is slight brain damage from taking in so much information. You may also suffer from...
...Our everyday lives are affected by music. People listen to it in the car, while grocery shopping, in the movies, at home, and practically anywhere else possible. There are many different types and styles of music, the most influential being Hip-Hop/Rap music, followed by Rock and Roll. Music is often a mood-altering device used to make the listener feel a sense of belonging, happiness, or sorrow. The different genres of music can be used to describe a certain group of people, whether it be by clothing, style, attitude, or sometimes ones social class. Hip-Hop/Rap music is believed to have the most influence on the way a listener of that genre, acts and carries on their life. (Lommel 244)
Music is more than a sound. It's a way of life, a way of expressing one's inner emotions, feelings and thoughts. Many songs express deep emotions like anger, sadness, love and happiness. The words of a song can express feelings thoroughly, therefore giving the youth of today's society a concept to grasp, as they begin to relate their lives to the works of their favorites musicians
Our first reliable music records came from the Romans. Americans musical history is very short when compared to Japan, India, Africa, and China. Music wasn't written down and recorded until around roughly 590-604 A.D. when the earliest musicians began to make records and notes, the first songs appear as biblical music, most likely used in churches and...
...Ethics In our everyday lives
Joshua L Young
August 20, 2011
This paper will discuss how ethics relate in our everyday lives and more specifically how ethics are used in our workplace also how ethics are used by companies. This paper will also cover how businesses have implemented ethical procedures, standards and how these businesses flourished because of the effective use of ethical standards.
“I consider ethics, as well as religion, as supplements to law in the government of man.”
Ethics in our Everyday Lives.
As a society we are faced with ethical problems every day, and how we handle these situations shape our culture and lives. However, what are ethics? The meaning of "ethics" is hard to pin down, and the views many people have about them are shaky. People tend to associate ethics with their feelings. But being ethical is clearly not a matter of following one's feelings, nor should one identify ethics with religion, the law or "whatever society accepts." Ethics refers to the constant effort of studying our moral conduct, and our own moral beliefs, and striving to ensure that we, and the institutions we help to shape,...
...Classical Music in OurLives
He gazed at his wife softly, taking in her beauty and remembering her youthful joy. He remembered the graceful way she danced in her younger years, the lovely way her body flowed from one move to the next. He remembered her playful personality bringing his young adolescence to the forefront of his mind. Her fair features sent him into a state of ecstasy, leaving him stranded in a pool of beauty. Then, all of a sudden, his life became dark. His every thought had a certain hideousness hidden in its roots. His wife was dying. She laid on her bed, weak and pale from the sickness. Her beauty faded, her youth withered. She wasn’t there anymore. But even after she died, his beauty stayed with him (Stepanova, 12).
This is an example of a story behind a piece of classical music I played in the fourth grade. I’m sure you’ve heard of it; the arrangement is called Für Elise, composed by Ludwig van Beethoven. There is a story behind the majority of classical music, and if there isn’t, it’s a simple matter to make one up. The reason behind these stories is to help the artist interpret the music, and play it in the way the composer would’ve imagined.
Classical music is often ignored by much of the population. William M. Briggs, a statistician, has found from ticket sales yearly since 1950, that sales have decreased by nearly 50% (Briggs, 08). Classical music is old and out of style, you might say. Everyone wants to listen to...
