Living in the American society of today there are not many times we all come together to sit down and listen. We are busy, we have careers, we have kids, and our free time is expensive. However, there are times that we as nation collectively take the time to stop and listen, when the President speaks. Recently President Obama sat down with a white house reporter to discuss his newly evolved views toward gay marriage. His interview was candid, it was spontaneous, and it set off all kinds of alarms across the societal landscape of America. An article that was recently published The New York Times details this interview, during which our President came out said that he thinks that gay people should have the right to marry. The topic of gay marriage is a massive social marker, one to surely start a discussion no matter which way you see it. The nation is seemingly divided on the topic, an opinion which will seem to sway a few percentage points here and there depending on the temperature of the society at that particular time (Calimes, 2012). By the President coming out with these statements he was he was not only literally making a statement but figuratively as well. One of the best ways to analyze this event from a sociologist’s point of view is to observe the symbolic interaction theory. Although this theory is mainly focused on gathering data from events that are observed at the micro level it can also be applied in a macro senses as well. This theory states that the behaviors of a society are based upon social interactions that a particular society has with itself (Crossman). Even though our president made his statements to a reporter and not to each and every one of us individually, the meaning…...

1000 Years of Revenge Book Review

...1000 Years of Revenge: International Terrorism and FBI--The Untold Story Michael Wallace Many Americans remain in the dark concerning truth behind the September 11th attacks. The day’s events and the staggering reactions make previous efforts by the US against terrorism fade in comparison. Yet the fact remains that the country has been fighting Islamic terrorism long before the appalling yet audacious attacks. September 11th 2001 saw the deadliest, most daring attacks on the US soil since Pearl Harbor. To many ordinary Americans, that day’s tragic events were definitely not preordained. Well, not according to Lance as apparently, there is more to 9/11 than catches the eye. On such a note begins an intriguing and disastrous narrative that spins back to the late 1980s to link the long gone events to the contemporary world affairs (Lance, 2004). In an intriguing and formidable manner the author, an award winning investigative reporter, unveils details; links acts and reveals a form of behavior that in them paved the way for the tragic September 11th by showing the reader prior intelligence mishaps. Narrated from the point of view of news-making individuals; the world’s most formidable terrorist and two counter terrorists, the book sheds light into the 12 year long covert terrorist confrontation and provides information that was previously unknown to many Americans. Lance brings into the spotlight a shattering and thrilling investigation of the FBI’s misinformed, under......

...would be a shortage of 5,000 apartments, and 10,000 units will be rented. This can viewed in graph form showing the price ceiling set at $1500 for monthly rent. If this were to happen there would be a shortage of apartments in the amount of 5,000. Qs Pe Qd Pc Qs Pe Qd Pc McConnell, Brue & Flynn, 2012 posed an inverse question, asking if the minimum set price for monthly rent is $2500, what would occur. This would cause a surplus of 5,000 apartments and only 10,000 apartments would be rented. If the government wanted to decrease the market equilibrium to $1500, they would have to increase the supply by 2500 more apartments. If the government wanted to lower the market equilibrium further, as posed in these examples, to $1000 or $500 for rent, they would have to increase the supply by 5000 or 7500 apartments respectively.

House of 1000 Mirrors

...House of 1000 Mirrors Long ago in a small, far away village, there was place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog came to know of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the House, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often." In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again." All the faces in the world are mirrors. Just observe what kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet. Life is actually a reflection of our thoughts and actions...

Year 1000

...Princess of Wales, in 1997 were the first step to sainthood.” She is a good example of what a modern day saint might be. The early English peasant’s faith had to be strong in areas of health also. “The sign of the cross was the antiseptic of the year 1000. The person who dropped his food on the floor knew that he was taking some sort of risk when he picked it up and put it in his mouth, but he trusted in his faith.” The same is true today, except we have antibiotics if the five second rule fails. Hygiene was not as important for them either. The monk was allotted only five baths in a year. That was considered to be more than the norm when it came to the common Anglo-Saxon citizen. There was no running water and the emptying of latrines was done right outside the front door. The connection between the constant intestinal problems and uncleanliness was not comprehended yet. They dealt with the same pest such as fleas as we do today. The extermination processes had not been perfected though. The swarming of flies that carried the diseases from house to house, along with the aroma of poo filled the air. “If the late twentieth century is scented with gasoline vapour and exhaust fumes, the year 1000 was perfumed with shit.” Medicine was not well developed as today either. Remains of a woman and her unborn child show that us that caesarean section had not perfected yet. The use of leeches and pagan charms for healing also tells me that......
