Boyz N The Hood makes great use of archetypal characters to further relate its story to that of the real world. Ricky is, in many ways, the prototypical, All-American boy. Throughout the film he is consistently seen either holding a football, wearing a football jersey, or watching football on TV. Ricky is frequently viewed drinking milk out of a carton, an image evocative of the wholesome American boy. He is well behaved, but possesses limited scholastic potential, instead viewing school as a means through which to play football. He is also easily influenced, deciding to join the Army shortly after seeing a recruiting commercial on TV. Conversely, Doughboy is the quintessential vision of the inner city gangsta. He is aggressive, engages in criminal acts of violence, drinks forties of malt liquor, and shows distrust and hatred towards authority figures. This image is strengthened through the reflexivity of casting Ice Cube, a well established musician in the genre of gangsta rap, as Doughboy. Finally, Tré is a prime example of the ambitious, responsible advocate of change. In several ways he is a middle ground between the extremes of Ricky and Doughboy. Many of Tré's personality traits, such as his views on the Army, are instilled in him by Furious, his father. This is notable in that it is the only relationship of its kind in the film, and is therefore presented to the audience as the definitive model of the father/son relationship. It is important to note that the word…
History of Ice Cream
The first frozen dessert is credited to Emperor Nero of Rome. It was a mixture of snow (which he sent his slaves into the mountains to retrieve) and nectar, fruit pulp and honey. Another theory is Marco Polo, 13th century bard and adventurer, brought with him to Europe from the Far East recipes for water ices....said to be used in Asia for thousands of years.
The first ice cream parlor in America opened in New York City in 1776.

There are no countries in Antarctica.
The ice can be more than 4 km thick in some places. This ice flows off the continent and creates floating ice shelves over the ocean; these shelves break up and create icebergs. If Antarctica’s ice sheets melted, the world’s oceans would rise by 60-65 meters.
The Arctic region lies at the North Pole. It is a small, frozen ocean surrounded by the northern edges of Europe, Asia, and North America, whose flat, bleak landscape is known as the tundra. The region…
were used to cut eight cubes; two 10 mm3, two 20 mm3, two 30 mm3, and two 40 mm3 in size. Each potato cube was cut so that there was no skin remaining on either side of the cube. One cube of each size was placed in the beaker so they were not touching each other or the side of the beaker. The timer was set for 30 minutes and started once the beaker was filled with enough potassium permanganate to completely cover the potato cubes. After each 5 minute interval the potato cubes were turned onto a different…
the most widely consumed food item in America — ice.
The process of combining water and cold temperature that hasn’t changed much since the Chinese cut and stored ice in 1,000 B.C is seeing a dramatic consumer shift. Why? Because an entrepreneur — a retired businessman — came up with an innovative new approach, combining the ice cube with an ATM vending style concept with the capability of making up to 13,000 pounds of ice per day.
The packaged ice business, despite its lack of glamour, is a $2…

come together to lead to a change in prospect and a difference in the futures of many youth born into a cycle with no choice. There are many negative effects of growing up in a high poverty area.
Violence is a reality for youth that grow up in inner-city poverty. New studies have shown that children growing up in these areas are actually experiencing psychological changes due to violence and other effects of poverty due to the over stimulation of their frontal lobe. The frontal lobe controls instincts…

welfare; which lead to further contrasts between the two areas. Social welfare measures the well-being of communities – shown through jobs, housing, health care and education.
The most significant contrast is the housing type. Byker Grove is an inner city electoral ward in Newcastle upon Tyne - consisting of council housing for many decades, whilst the Isle of Purbeck is largely private/owner occupied. In the 1960s, Byker had exclusively small terraced Victorian housing built for those in low paid…
