...Research Paper “The Shooting at the Ok Corral” was a really entertainment part of the movie. The facts of the movie Tombstone are all just fictional because on real life all those facts are not the same as how they truly happened. The reason why the fact on the movie are all just fictional is because the history over the shooting on the ok corral says a lot difference facts. Especially that it is a movie they always try to change the things up a little bit so it can be interesting. Although there are some events in the movie that are factual. One of the event that is factual is that Ike Clanton was really unarmed. (http://www.historynet.com/ok-corral-a-gunfight-shrouded-in-mystery.htm). Another event that was factual was when Virgil Earp raised is hand and told the cowboys to raised their hand and to give him their arms.( http://www.historynet.com/ok-corral-a-gunfight-shrouded-in-mystery.htm). Another factual event is when frank told Holliday “I got you now” (http://www.historynet.com/ok-corral-a-gunfight-shrouded-in-mystery.htm). The other event that is factual is that in the movie shows that Wyatt Earp was the one who shoot the first. (http://www.bignosekates.info/history3.html). The event that I’m going to be contrasting is the ones that were not factual. The event that was not factual was that Billy Clanton was the first one to take his gun out. But I t wasn’t like that the real acts is that Ike grapples the pistol of Wyatt and that makes Wyatt shoot first.......

Is It Ever Ok to Lie?

...Is it ever ok to lie? To me, lying is a means to an end, and hence whether lying is acceptable or not depends on the intended nature of the “end”, whether it is “intended” for the good or for the worse. For instance, a father consoling his terminally ill daughter would lie and tell her that everything is fine, with the positive intention of giving his daughter hope and will to live, which is, of course, morally acceptable. On the other hand, a tax accountant lying about a company’s income and revenue statistics to the government with the ill intention of avoiding taxes for personal gain is morally impermissible. Hence whether lying is acceptable depends very much on the intended end-result. Another thing that I would like to point out is the relative emphasis on intention rather than consequences. (Of course, this is not to say that consequence does not play a role in the determination of whether lying is wrong.) Since events are always unpredictable, things may turn out with unexpected consequences regardless of the nature of the intention. For example, the aforementioned daughter may accidentally find out about her father’s lies on her medical condition and hate her father because of it until the second she died. This is obviously a negative and unexpected consequence. However, her father’s lies are still justifiable due to his well-meant intention. And let’s say, if, the tax accountant’s fraud initiated many company financial reviews and ultimately led to a......

Bullying Not Ok

...school; something that I could sympathize with since I had just come to the school the year before. It was a normal day, same routine, same everything. The changing class bell had rung and all of the students were matriculating into the halls and off to lunch. As I stood at my locker minding my own business, it was the scene that perspired that truly was the beginning of sad process. Marci had one weakness, her inability to talk to boys and to learn when they were just using her. She had a ridiculous crush on our star football quarterback, James. The plan was simple; James and some of the Central Core began to pay attention to her and invited her to a party at Rachel’s, one of the girls in the Central Core. Marci was elated and viewed this as her chance to fit in. When she told me about the invitation as the end of class bell rang in our Biology class, I attempted to talk her out of it but she wouldn’t listen. On Monday morning, photocopies of the pictures were passed around the school. When Marci got to school, she was the laughing stock of the school. I went looking for her once I found out what had happened but I could not find her anywhere. The next morning at school, we all learned bad news… Marci had committed suicide. I guess the bullying had become too overwhelming and I guess she felt that she had no way out. Various students were questioned and in the end the Central Core group was suspended; I feel they deserved way harsher punishment. Although I was not......

It's Ok

...I wonder what the big deal is when it comes to stereotypes. So, what is a stereotype? It is simply a general statement about a particular people. We have black stereotypes, white stereotypes, Asian, Mexican, Christian, Muslim, and so on. Now, of course a stereotype does not pertain to all of that group. For example, all Muslims are not terrorists, but in a general sense, we in America relate Muslims with terrorism because most of what we see them and hear of them doing is related to terrorism. This is, of course, a dangerous stereotype because it could cause some to want to do harm to innocent Muslims. I don’t understand why people are so uptight about most stereotypes, though. Most stereotypes are funny, and true. I mean, so what if Asians can’t drive. It’s not their fault. Perhaps it’s a genetic trait engrained into their DNA that disables their hand eye cordination. If that’s the case, I don’t know how they could be so good at kung fu. I guess it’s just one of those questions that may never be answered, but it’s Ok. Why get mad because others can do things that you can’t? Men can’t have babies, but you don’t see me getting all upset when someone brings that to my attention. And so what if white people can’t dance. I don’t see us getting together and starting another civil rights movement if the local news channel does a story on the statistics of the lack of rhythm among the white community. Some stereotypes actually transcend the racial bouderies. Some still take......

Why Television Is Ok for Children

...Why Television is OK for Children Why Television is OK for Children Tonia Boyett Grand Canyon University English Composition II 106 February 19, 2011 Why Television is OK for Children The views about children and television all seem to point to television being bad for children. According to Rose Bachtel text “Television: Destroying Childhood”, watching television does not allow children the exercise that they need to keep their bodies in shape and can lead to health problems (Bachtel, 2010). But also according to two visual sources, watching too much seems to be the main problem with childhood obesity because children eat bad foods as they watch television (Giany, 2010), (Perez, 2006). But if parents monitor more of their kids’ television time, maybe obesity would not be such a huge problem. In the text by Bachtel, it was an essay in which she describes that “times have changed” (Bachtel, 2010). Back when she was younger, and when most of us were also, we played outside most of the time. But today with so many types of entertainment, for example, TV, video games, and computers, kids do not want to go outside. Many kids today are considered latch key kids so when they get home from school they have to stay indoors. So of course they are going to watch television. Then as they are watching TV, they are going to want to eat a snack. This in turn is causing less exercise in children, which can cause obesity. The essay also states that if there were no televisions......

Er Fattigdom I Danmark Ok?

...Er fattigdom i Danmark ok? De fleste fattige danskere skjuler deres fattigdom, fordi den opleves som flov og skamfuld. Men der findes minimum 100.000 af dem, og spørgsmålet er, om vi som samfund skal gøre noget ved det problem, siger fattigdomsforsker. DJØF Bladet nr. 3, 2009 13.02.2009 Af: Lars Lønstrup [pic] "Fattigdom er en realitet herhjemme og hverdag for minimum 100.000 danskere. Det grundlæggende spørgsmål er, om vi som samfund skal gøre noget ved det problem, eller skubbe det væk og lade som om, det ikke eksisterer." Det siger Finn Kenneth Hansen. Han er økonom (cand.polit.) og afdelingsleder i CASA (Center for Alternativ Samfundsanalyse). Og med dette udsagn har han allerede for længst forladt den sikre bred, hvor samfundsforskere med mere ukontroversielle forskningsområder, befinder sig. Det er han fuldt bevidst om. Det er over 20 år siden, Finn Kenneth Hansen begyndte at forske i fattigdom på sin daværende arbejdsplads SFI, Det nationale Center for Velfærd. Og derfor kender han bedre end de fleste de modstridende argumenter og tal, der gør fattigdomsdiskussionen til en af de mere fastlåste og uforsonlige i såvel dansk samfundsdebat som i det politiske liv på Christiansborg og rundt om på landets rådhuse. Hvornår er man fattig? "Det er man, når man har så få ressourcer, at man bliver udelukket fra de mest elementære livsmønstre, vaner og aktiviteter og ikke kan klare sig i forhold til de normer, der gælder i samfundet. Det er altså et......

Ok Corral

...In 1875 he had his first run-in with the law and was indicted for illegal gambling. He was found guilty and left the state for a few years. Holliday came back to Texas in 1877 where he met a man named Wyatt Earp. They began a new unlikely friendship that they would keep until their deaths. They were introduced to each other by a man named John Shanssey. Their friendship was set in stone in 1878 in Dodge City, Kansas. This was when Doc Holliday defended Wyatt Earp from a gang of cowboys who were out to kill him. Wyatt Earp was quoted saying this about Doc Holliday, "I found him a loyal friend and good company. He was a dentist whom necessity had made a gambler; a gentleman whom disease had made a vagabond; a philosopher whom life had made a caustic wit; a long, lean blonde fellow nearly dead with consumption and at the same time the most skillful gambler and nerviest, speediest, deadliest man with a six-gun I ever knew."[2] “Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was born in Monmouth, Illinois, on March 19, 1848. In October 1874, he earned some money by helping an off duty police officer find thieves who had stolen a man’s wagon.”[2] He got his name in the paper for this and joined the Wichita marshal's office on April 21, 1875. One newspaper called Wyatt Earp "Officer Erp" this was before his official hiring, which makes his role as a man of law in 1874 unclear. He was embarrassed in 1876 when his loaded revolver fell out of his holster while he was leaning back on a chair and......

Is It Ok for Companies to Track You

...What is really going on in the background of websites, are we being followed and tracked to just be sold off as a product to a marketing company. Many companies such a Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, Twitter, and Apple all participate in the data collection. This data can be found as a cookie, a post, tweet, search, or an account that you may have with any of these particular companies. Each of these companies states their reasoning for tracking and it always comes down to providing a better experience. I believe that it is ok for companies such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, Twitter, and Apple to track our searches and compile data about us as long as they keep the advertising online. Once they invade our home life such as phone calls and direct mailing, then I believe that they have gone too far. Nothing is ever truly free these companies are in it to make money and they make considerable amount of revenue from using our information to advertise to use.
