Immigration in America
The inscription written by Emma Lazarus on the statue of liberty says the following; Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me; I lift my lamp beside the golden door! It sounds lovely, it is a beautiful poem filled with hope and the implication that this is a nation who will take anyone in. Unfortunately, none of that lovely poem is true and it never has been. The ugly truth is only certain types of immigrants need apply. We don’t want any tired, poor, huddled masses in our country yesterday, today or tomorrow. Anti immigration laws are nothing new and they do not appear to be any kinder today than they were in times past. Even our president who got elected by minority and immigrant people hoping and praying for change seems to be carefully sitting on the fence concerning the issue. "We should continue the work of fixing our broken immigration system," the president said, "to secure our borders, and enforce our laws, and ensure that everyone who plays by the rules can contribute to our economy and enrich our nation. In the end, it's our ideals, our values that built America, values that allowed us to forge a nation made up of immigrants from every corner of the globe, values that drive our citizens still." “Although Obama dedicated only about 40 seconds to immigration, his words spoke volumes. By stating his commitment to "secure our borders" and "enforce our laws," the president was signaling that immigration authorities will continue raiding private homes in search of "illegals," forcing employers to turn over undocumented workers, and splitting up families with deportations” (Gonzales, 2010). “The Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, as it is formally known, would provide a path...

Human emotions are complex. They express positive or negative reactions to external and internal stimuli. Emotion, behavior, and cognition influence each other. Thus, each emotion distinctly affects human motivation, learning, thinking, and physical acts. Emotions influence writers or authors in the way he or she expresses himself or herself in his or her writing. In this paper, the author will discuss how emotions in literature from the past, present, and future impact the way Nathaniel Hawthorne expressed his emotions when writing the books he has published.
Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Background relates to his Writing
Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on July 4, 1804, in Salem, Massachusetts. His ancestors were Puritans, who were the first settlers in the state. They came to the New World with Governor Winthrop in 1603. His ancestors were two prominent judges, one active in the persecution of the Quakers in the 1650s, the other in the witch trials of the 1690s, which Anne Hutchinson was the criminal. Nathaniel grew up in a religious family, and therefore, his religious beliefs influenced the way he wrote....
...The Past, Present, and Future of UNIX
CIS 155 UNIX Operating System
March 4, 2012
In the beginning, two men Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie in 1969 created an operating system that still has potential and relevance in today’s ever changing computer world, that operating system is called UNIX. I will be going over the past and present of UNIX and will also tell on how I feel about thefuture of UNIX. In the past, UNIX, a dominant operating system which pioneered the future of operating systems and how they are used today. Older platforms were written in assembly language which makes moving files around to different computers extremely difficult, when UNIX was created it was originally written in that same language but later changed to a high level language we all know today as C, there is only a small portion of the UNIX operating system that remain in assembly language and that is located in the kernel of the operating system. “Universities and colleges have played an important role in the popularity of the UNIX operating system. In 1975, Bell labs offered the UNIX operating system to educational institutions at minimal cost.”(Afzal, 2008)

Preserving the Past for the Present and Future
Many people have little to no knowledge about human’s prehistoric past, especially that of humans in the Americas. As you cruise down east bound Interstate 70 and make it through St. Louis, you start to drive by one of North America’s largest prehistoric city structures, Cahokia. According to the Cahokia Mounds Historical Site, this city covered six square miles, had 120 mounds, and was home to anywhere between 10,000 to 20,000 people from the years 700 to 1400 AD (Keller). Cahokia use to be a major regional trade center with huge mounds that had large palaces for city rulers, plazas, different neighborhoods, and even gaming fields, but much of this has been lost from natural wear of the land and also human destruction. I-70, although a hugely important interstate nearly connecting coast to coast, cuts right through some of the city, and new housing developments slowly threaten the area (Ritterbush). This human destruction happens all over and continuously erases some of human history from right beneath our feet. Archaeological sites should be preserved in order to protect unwritten human history, create economical benefits, and teach future generations about the human past and allow for future studies.

This past, present and future paper will reflect on my personal and professional growth during the time frame that I was a student at the University of Phoenix. One of the themes that are explored in this paper is that education is a lifetime pursuit. Another theme is what I am taking away from the institution now that I have completed my course of study. Finally the paper sets future career and personal goals to continue my lifetime of learning.
PastPresent and FuturePast
I have always valued education, and have a great yearning for knowledge. Prior to attending the University of Phoenix I had attended Oral Roberts University, majoring in Management Information Systems, for three years. My studies at Oral Roberts were cut short by a combination of two factors; a lack of finances to continue and a general boredom in the traditional educational setting.
I am a self-educator. I can take a subject I really enjoy, study and research it to the point were I am very well versed in it, and then remember the facts and figures that make it relevant in our world today. I have always been fascinated with the military leaders of our country with a particular fascination surrounding the military genius that led to our victories in World War II. I have been reading biographies, and autobiographies, of leaders and politicians since I was in high...
...scan the price of each item and present a total. Barcoding items (clothes, food and books ) requires a computer to generate the barcode labels and maintain the inventory. Most televison advertisiments and many films use graphics produced by a computer. In hospitals, bedide terminals connected to the hospital's main computer allow doctors to typw in orders for blood tests and to schedule operations. Banks use computers to lool after their customers' money. In libraries and bookshops, computers can help to find the book you want as quikly as possible. This has not always been the case though; computers did not always exist, and are continuously changing to this day. I think one group said it best,” Companies promote it for their employees. Parents demand it for their children. Those who have it believe they have a competitive edge. Those who don't have it seek it out. "It" is a computer. We are rapidly becoming a "computer society" Until recently computers were found only in environmentally controlled rooms behind locked doors. Only computer professionals dared enter these secured premises. In contrast today computers are found in millions of homes and just about every office. In fact there is a computer for one in every eight people in the world. Eventually all of us will have at least one computer and will use it every day for work and leisure.”

...Terrorism: Past, Present, and Future
The best response to this network of terror is to build a network of our own -- a network of
like-minded countries and organizations that pools resources, information, ideas, and power.
Taking on the radical fundamentalists alone isn’t necessary, it isn’t smart, and it won’t succeed.-
Revolutions come only when the public can be stirred into action. The status quo of a
region or nation cannot be broken unless there is a large public calling for radical changes to the
current regime. Since changing the psycho-emotional balance of the people is paramount to a
revolution’s momentum, it is commonplace for revolutionary groups to take drastic measures for
attention and sympathy. From these drastic measures, the concept of terrorism has evolved- the
concept of violence and public intimidation to engender politics favored by the offending group.
Terrorism is any political activity that relies on violence or the threat of violence to achieve its
ends. Much of the time terrorism targets ordinary citizens rather than government organizations.
Terrorists aim to create a climate of fear as a catalyst for political change or restructuring. The
goal for the terrorists is to demoralize the population, and at the same time to provoke the
government into a disproportionate response. An overreaction from the government would
ideally make the government look bad and give life to sympathy...
...Past, Present, and Future Paper
When I was a child, I knew that I wanted to be a nurse just like my mom. I started preparing myself by majoring in science, math, and typing in high school. I knew that these classes would one day prepare me for college. When I enter college at the University of Memphis after high school, I take all the prerequisites needed for the nursing program. Later, I entered nursing school at Baptist School of Nursing and I was well on my way to becoming a nurse. When I got in nursing school, I lost focus of why I was there and failed the nursing program. I decided to continue my education at Shelby State Community College (Southwest Community College) by retaking my biology classes to enter SSCC night nursing program.
Well I was going to college; I worked at Kroger part-time as a bakery clerk at night. There I meet my now husband at Kroger and we got married. Later, I entered SSCC night nursing program and started working for Kroger full-time as a cake decorator. I knew that nursing school, a full-time job, and a husband were going to be challenging, but I thought I could handle it. Everything was going fine until I was faced with a challenging issue. I was in my second Nursing class, Medical-Surgical Nursing, and I was pregnant with my first child. I thought once I had my child I would go back to Nursing School and finish. However, this plan did not work out, I knew that I could not work full-time, take...
Back to the Future: Past, Present, and Future
Whether you are a movie buff or just a dude from the 80's, there is a good chance you have seen the classic movie “Back to the Future.” Accompanied by an iconic cast and crew, the movie garnered so much popularity, Universal Studios pumped out three installments of the Trilogy --”Back to the Future 1, 2, and 3. With Steven Spielberg's and Robert Zemeckis' stamp, Back to the Future not only launched Michael J. Fox's career, but undoubtedly changed movies forever. There is much to discuss and analyze about all three installments. These would include actor choices, spotting, direction, acting, and most importantly the soundtrack and musical choices for all 3. Considering all 3 movie plots jump from decade to decade, it can be analyzed literally from past, present, and future. Inevitably, Back to the Future's success also led to several video game launches, a ride at Universal Studios in Hollywood and Orlando, an animated series, and even a comic book.
Let's go back to the year 1985, you and your bodacious friends want to hang ten with the dudes, so you guys catch a flick at the local cineplex. Your choices are Mask, Teen Wolf, or Back to the Future. You mean the guy from Family Ties? So you take your chances on Back to the Future. Good...
