"To bodily go where no one has gone before" is what Gene Rodenberry thought human progress was all about. I have been watching Star Trek for almost 15 years now and the way Gene Rodenberry portrayed human progress has made me wish that I was immortal, just so I could see what is to come. When I look at the picture of Tange Kenzo's Metropolitan Government Offices in West Shinjuku, Japan all I see is the future. The tall unique building does not look like something from this time. It could be because I am from the US where we still think conservatively, simply, and cheap or it could be because we, as a human race, are showing some progress. So I believe that we should move more towards a Star Trek kind of life. This sounds kind of nerdy and unrealistic, but a lot of Gene Rodenberry's ideas where very reasonable and realistic. If there wasn't any human progress I would not be able to get to work, which is fifteen miles away, in ten minutes. Or I would not be able to turn in this paper without handing it to my instructor in person and in my hardly legible handwriting. As humans we have not only made progress in "things," but also in society. By that I mean we are not the barbaric people we used to be. We still have a long way to go to get to where Star Trek says we are going, a hate-less world, people accepting people no matter how different we all are from each other. Only one hundred and forty years have passed since we use to have slaves and only forty to fifty years where blacks where accepted as full citizens. We have been flying planes longer than blacks have had full citizenship. In some countries there is still slavery. We still hate so much as to take the life of a young man just because he is attracted to men and then we can't call it a hate crime because our government didn't recognize crimes committed on the basis of sexual orientation are not considered hate crimes. And even after, our president tried to push legislation through

“From Now, to Than”
Where has the time gone? It’s already the end of my junior year 17 years young and almost a senior! I can’t even believe it myself. I remember my first year being a freshman thinking that 2014 is a long time away! Now that’s 2013 and only a year away. High school goes so by so fast I can barley recall it. So they say high school is suppose to be the time of your life, it’s seriously the hardest and most stressful time. I can’t wait to….
boom of the industrial age people have always strived to go beyond to invent faster, better and even more efficient inventions. All of this supposedly to make our lives easier to live. Without a doubt things have become better and more efficient than before. Originally people did this to save time. Time has always been considered precious and we are constantly trying to save time. So much so that we have lost the meaning of saving time and it has become a part of the culture that we live in today. “More….

Mandatory Retirement Has to Go
Traditionally, people retire from their jobs when they reach the age of sixty-five. In some jobs, this is not an option but a requirement. I object to mandatory retirement for capable workers because it violates personal choice, discriminates against senior citizens, and wastes valuable skills as well as money.
First of all, I believe that mandatory retirement violates an individual’s personal choice of continuing to work or retiring. The older working person should….
The poem “where shall we go” is written by Vernon Scannell. This poem is mainly based on a love relationship, which doesn’t go to plan. Throughout the poem it shows that love can end up in many ways, but looking closely at the content of love in this poem it doesn’t go smoothly. The see is set in a local pub bar where a man is waiting impatiently on his girlfriend to arrive, but he knows himself that she is going to be late. The mood all through the poem is down beat and this poem also has a regular….
Has Hamlet Gone Mad?
Hamlet was the prince of Denmark, son of the assassi-nated King Hamlet and
Queen Gertrude, and nephew to Claudius. Hamlet, (during the play) goes through
some very troubling situations in which he seems to act in an insane manner.
But I am convinced that he was " not in madness, but mad in craft." I also
believe that he was a man of high moral standards, in fact higher than most of
the people in Denmark at that time.
Hamlet was bombarded by many situations at the start….

written about us or a tale people will tell when we are gone. Death may appear ominous because many of us fail to realize there’s no reset button to life. You can’t go to sleep one day, wake up the next day and go back in time.
When one day is gone, you can’t go back and make things right. Twenty-four hours is enough time to do a lot, but when you don’t plan what you want to do with your month the days fly by too quickly. Have you ever had one of those months when you can’t remember what you achieved….
Where Have The Good Men Gone?
‘’Where Have the Good Men Gone?’’ is what Kay Hymowitz wants to know in her latest Wall St. Journal, published on February 19th 2011. Her argument, which appears to be largely based on Judd Apatow movies, is that young American men do not grow up. Her other book, “Manning Up” received brilliant reviews, saying it was ‘’fascinating’’ and ‘’brutally honest’’. ‘’Where Have the Good Men Gone’’ even formed part of a live chat involving men and women debating….
