Despite the crime rates, New York was not limited to few inner city neighborhoods that could still be avoided. The drop in the crime rates during the 1990s were correspondingly surprising.

Susan B. Anthony

Susan B. Anthony’s Quakerism and its Importance in the Feminist Narrative The word feminist as known by the mass media, and the general population carries a myriad of connotations and a series of perceived stigmas that mark feminism as “dangerous” or “controversial” (Offen, 1988). In the same light, mass media has portrayed women’s rights movements as problematic, and that notion continues to exist today, difficulting any investigation on women and their history. Hence, achieving a “complete” definition of feminism would be an endeavor longer than the pages available. Consequently, this investigation will use the most accurate definition on hand, taking for valid the...

For example, earthworms and ants help in determining soil fertility through aeration and bioturbation. These animals have lacked...

Public right to information

Name: Professor’s name: Course number: Date: Public right to information I am a fifteen-year-old girl who lives on an island. I am not an avid reader of the newspaper; however, once in a while, an interesting headline may catch my attention, like the story of the group of girls accused of murdering a girl their own age (Joan 26). I saw them as a reflection of my friends and I. Part of me hated that you shared the story; while part of me was grateful, it made me realize that I was part of the problem. The public needs not to have access to all information. As one would say, too much information is in itself harmful. Providing just enough information to the public would seem crucial to...
