By the year 1763, the relationship between the US colonies and Britain was strained at best. The people of America began to increasingly see themselves as independent people. During this time period, the British tried desperately to hold onto their investments in North America. They enforced new restrictions and taxes meant to subdue the restless colonies, who responded with new values and ideals that led to the eventually separation from Britain. By 1763, Britain had enforced several taxes in hopes of bringing the colonies back under their full control. This turned about to be a big mistake as it just encouraged the colonists to renew their struggle for complete independence. Around the same time, the French Indian war was coming to a close, and Britain was struggling with money. Both the Sugar and Stamp Acts were passed by Britain’s government, leading to higher taxes on sugar, molasses, and paper products. During this time the Sons and Daughters of Liberty were formed and began the motions for an independent nation. Another act was eventually passed that pushed the tension to a breaking point. The Tea Act led to the call towards revolution. All in all, the British plan to gain control of the colonies again through various taxes didn’t work; instead, it managed to further alienate the colonies from England and its allies. Further restrictions were also placed on the colonists in order to regain British control. An example of this is the Proclamation of 1763, which prevented colonists from moving west of the Appalachian Mountains. Another enforcement of the British was the Quartering Act, which had colonists housing British soldiers against their will. Americans slowly began losing their rights to the British rule. People were sick of having to bow down fully to the British crown. They began to shape their values towards independence, freedom, and equality. This led to a call to…

intellectual language to their blunt sexual innuendos. Out of all the characters, I cannot choose one particular character because each one has their own unique personality to love. I find myself looking up to these characters for their personalities are so charming in a geeky strange way. Howard’s personality always gets me because of his futile flirty gestures and peculiar attire. Rajesh is the joke of the group as he is the stereotypical smart Indian that is good at math. These characters all share…

independent from her parents. Throughout the seasons of the show, Meg shows a need to break away from her despicable family, but cannot successfully do so due to her lack of maturity and independence (Moncrief, 2001). These effects could be linked to her parent’s way of conducting their selves towards Meg. While this television series continues being ever so popular to young adults, it not only gives us comedic entertainment, but an educational lesson on parenting as well. Even though the effects of neglected…

You were just what the doctor ordered
I'm beginning to feel like a Rap God, Rap God
All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod
Now who thinks their arms are long enough to slap box, slap box?
They said I rap like a robot, so call me rap-bot
But for me to rap like a computer must be in my genes
I got a laptop in my back pocket
My pen'll go off when I half-cock it
Got a fat knot from that rap profit
Made a living and a killing off it
Ever since Bill Clinton…
to harness more sunlight, trees altered to produce fuel rather than cellulose and termites designed to eat old cars. Not so long ago green technologies changed the world by milking cows, fermenting grapes and plowing fields. All to often scientific advancements are held back by fear, narrow mindedness and emotion. Can we open our minds, set aside our emotions and fear, so that we can evolve?

accustomed to American pop culture and its icons. Atwood writes, “When you were finished with Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse, you could always go on to Superman” (80). American comedian and radio personality, Jack Benny, spread his voice all the way to Canada so that they could tune in and enjoy their Sunday evening entertainment the same way Americans were accustomed to doing. When Atwood was growing up, she explains how television did not exist and instead, “There were, however, comic books, and these were…
So Far Yet So Close
It had been a long trip, yet we were so close. I’m from Cuba; I came to Miami thirteen years ago at the age of seven. I came with my mother and little brother. If you see the World Map you would see that Florida is just right on top of Cuba, but how we got here was a little more than just s ninety mile trip.
We left Cuba on a fourth of July in 2003. We did not come straight to Miami, Florida. We first went to Mexico. We stayed there for a week at my mom’s friend’s house…
