The tsunami waves traveled primarily in the east to west direction and caused major damage along the coasts of southern Thailand. Unpredictably, it was a violent earthquake beneath the sea that initiated the massive waves and struck more than a dozen countries in Southern Asia.

Cause and Effect of Anorexia

The historical event of Hurricane Katrina, a category three hurricane with winds ranging from 111-130 mph, in August 2005 revealed major structural failures in the levee systems of New Orleans.

The result of this failure led to lawsuits, conspiracy theories, and court cases. Hurricane Katrina had a major effect upon our country and those results are still rippling on today. Though a city once devastated, major improvements to the failed system have been made and leave the city feeling safe once again.

Although the effect can sometimes be pre-determined, no one is really sure what the outcome is going to be until the time comes.

Why Drugs Should Be Legal

Why Drugs Should Be Legal
America is wasting it?s money and resources. It?s trying restrict something on which restrictions don?t have any effects: drugs. People who don?t use recreational drugs don?t do so because of the health risks; people who do use drugs would whether or not they are legal. The fact that they are illegal makes little difference. Nevertheless, $15,000,000,000 goes directly into drug prohibition every year, and has very little effect. Very much money is spent to pay police narcotics officers, fund the D.E.A., and house drug-offenders in prison. The prisons are full of drug-related criminals, and violent offenders go free earlier because of this. Which would you prefer walking the streets, a rapist, or a potsmoker?

Macbeth: A Tale Of Two Theories

Macbeth: A Tale Of Two Theories
Macbeth(c.1607), written by William Shakespeare, is the tragic tale of
Macbeth, a virtuous man, corrupted by power and greed. This tagedy could in fact
be called "A Tale of Two Theories". One theory suggests that the tragic hero,
Macbeth, is led down an unescapable road of doom by an outside force, namely
fate in the form of the three witches. The second suggests that there is no
supernatural force working against Macbeth, which therefore makes him
responsible for his own actions and inevitable downfall. It must be remembered
that Macbethis a literary work of art, and as a peice of art is open to many
different interpretations, none of them right and none of them wrong. But the
text of the play seems to imply that Macbeth is indeed responsible for his own
actions which are provoked by an unwillingness to listen to his own conscience,
the witches, and his ambition.

Any place I go, I know I will never find two skateboards
that are the same. Each and every component of the
skateboard makes a difference in the board?s movement.
Every deck, truck, and wheel is interchangeable so there is
almost an endless amount of combinations. A number of
things can go wrong when riding; a person will never know
when one of the components will malfunction. I was riding
along one day, and like a cat pouncing on a mouse, it hits
me and I suddenly realize that I am going to feel some pain.
One of my wheels came off, I jerked, flew through the air,
then landed on the street, all because the only day I took
the time to check my wheels was the day I received the
