Music storage devices such as Mp3 players have become progressively a more popular trend today then it had been earlier, especially with the boom of music downloading. It seems almost everyone owns an mp3 player, and most likely it is an Apple iPod. Apple iPods are in fact riding on the pop culture wave; their use has changed the American youth socially, and in a beneficial way.
The world has become a rapidly changing place, this holds true especially with technology, where a product can turn from cutting edge to obsolete in a matter of weeks. Although there is one gadget that seems to have etched its place in stone, the Apple iPod. It has become a household name; a name that brings fun, pleasure and excitement to everyday life. It has a reputation all of its own. The truth is that many believe iPod is simply one of the best media inventions of modern times. Its ability to carry 10,000 songs anywhere can be seen as a blessing to a multitude of people.
On October 23, 2001, Apple introduced the first iPod, which became, and still is, one of the most sought after products in consumer history. Immediately, some

Psychedelic Drugs In Therapy
There are several psychedelic drugs that are being studied to determine if they have any promising medical possibilities. D-lysergic acid (LSD), ibogaine, and methylenedioxy methamphetamine (MDMA) are among those drugs. LSD has shown potential for treating drug and alcohol addictions and cancer patients. MDMA has shown promise when used in conjunction with psychotherapy. These drugs, although promising, have serious side effects that may outweigh their benefit. More studies still need to be done before these drugs are legalized for use in medical and therapeutic situations.
Medical Possibilities for LSD and Other Psychedelic Drugs
The National Institute on Drug Abuse funds some studies to determine if psychedelic drugs have any medical possibilities. Scientists at the Orenda Institute in Baltimore are examining LSD as a possible treatment for addiction to heroin, opium, alcohol, and sedative hypnotics. Researchers at the University of Miami are studying ibogaine, another similar psychedelic drug, as a potential treatment for cocaine addiction. Other scientists are focusing their psychedelic research on studying and learning more about the human brain, relieving pain in cancer patients, and discovering antidotes to drug overdoses (Kurtzweil, 1995).

From 1973 to 1987, over 22 million abortions have been performed. Pro-lifers would call that a terrible waste of human life. True, 22 million lives were taken, but I believe that we are better off without those. Please let me explain in the following report.
What is abortion
Websters dictionary defines abortion as “the expulsion of a nonviable fetus.” Abortion might possibly be the most controversial topic right now.
Im sure by now that youve heard of all the different types of abortion. Almost all abortions performed in the US are surgical abortions, where the fetus is removed by suction or other means. (Medication offers another option, to be discussed later in this report.) During a suction abortion, the fetus is dismembered and disposed of by a small tube. This process takes but about 10 minutes, and the mother experiences very little or no physical discomfort. Pro-lifers immediately say that emotional trauma and guilt haunts every woman after she has an abortion. However, during my research, I found numerous women who led (and continue to lead) prominent and scot-free lives after their abortions. I think that the mental state of the mother depends very much on her personal feelings

Vanessa Carlton is a new young artist that has come a long way in a very short amount of time. She got a four star rating on her debut album, Be Not Nobody. That says a lot for a young artist these days. She not only has a beautiful voice, but she can play the piano like Beethoven. She even writes her own lyrics and Alicia Keys influenced her. Although people may say that they sound alike, they are entirely different artists. Stephen Erlewine, the writer from allmusicguide.com, says that she has the soul-searching of Fiona Apple and the precise intricacies of Rick Wakeman.
Her style is very laid-back and relaxing. She uses a lot of orchestral background music to help aid her Spring-like voice. The result is something quite surprising: it has an overwhelming, sweet, multi-layered appeal to people of all ages and cultures. The first person who actually introduced me to her music was one of my guy friends. He is only twenty and he is African American. I was surprised to hear that he moved out of his normal rap music and actually paid attention

Do you think that abortion is the same thing as murdering your own child People have argued this question for centuries. In 1996, there were 30 abortions for every 1,000 women aged 15-19 (?Teen? 1). I think abortion should be against the law because it?s harmful to the mother and it kills the baby. I will discuss about abortion by talking about the abortion methods, reasons and affects of abortion.
Abortions are performed using one of several methods. The safest and most appropriate method is determined by the age of the fetus, or the length of pregnancy, which is calculated from the beginning of the pregnant woman?s last menstrual period (?Abortion? 1). ?Most pregnancies last an average of 39 to 40 weeks? (?Teen Pregnancies? 2). This period is divided into three stages known as trimesters. The first trimester consists of the first 13 weeks, the second trimester spans weeks 14 to 24, and the third trimester lasts from the 25th week to birth. Abortions in the first trimester of pregnancy are easier and safer to perform while abortions in the second and third trimesters require more complicated procedures and pose greater risks to a woman?s health.

Procrastination is more than just a negative custom that needs to be weeded out of society; it is also a cliche? a small-talk joke, boast, or complaint. After all, we all do it. Most everybody I know is willing to admit it is an exasperating problem in their life, and would benefit from a course in How to Eliminate Procrastination, but say they have to much to catch-up on, and will take it later.
There are many underlying issues and causes of procrastination. Lack of relevance and interest is two of the most common causes. While perfectionism having extremely high standards, which are almost unreachable is another problem all together. Evaluation, anxiety, ambiguity,

Record labels are a crucial part of the commercial music industry today and always have been since music started being recorded. Record labels allow an artist to have his or her music recorded onto a tape, compact disc (CD), or any other form of recording, which they may choose. This includes many digital recordings, which have become popular in today?s musical society. There have been many different record labels over the years, including BMG Records, Atlantic Records, Pearl Records, Warner Bros. Records and Capitol Records, just to name a few. In the following paragraphs I am going to describe how Capitol Records came about, and what kind of impact it has had on the commercial music industry. In addition, I will also give information on Capitol Records today.
Capitol Records is one of the major and most profitable music labels in the music industry today, and has been a leading records label since its creation in 1942. A songwriter named Johnny Mercer, along with a Hollywood music storeowner named Glenn Wallichs, and a movie producer by the name of Buddy DeSylva founded Capitol Records together in 1942.

Please Understand Me II
For many years, people have always questioned each others motives. People have always questioned why certain people do certain things or why certain people act a certain way. We have always wondered what makes other people tick; people besides ourselves. Watching another person perform daily tasks can raise many questions. Questions such as ” Why didnt he do that the other way” or ” How can someone bungee jump” Temperament, Character, and Personality have mystified human beings so much, Plato, himself, wrote about four kinds of character. By understanding each other, humankind may get a better sense of who everyone is. Stereotypes as the outcast will be better understood for what they do and why they do it. By understanding character, people will appreciate differences instead of trying to mold other people into molds of themselves.
The book Please Understand Me II, by David Keirsey, is based on the questionnaire, devised by Kathryn Briggs called the “The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.”(Keirsey, 1998) Myers labeled her sixteen personality types with four pairs of letters. E or I, P or J, N or S, or, F or T. E means extraverted, I means introverted, P means perceiving, J means judging, N means intuitive,

In Roman times, abortion and the destruction of unwanted children was permissible, but as out civilization has aged, it seems that such acts were no longer acceptable by rational human beings, so that in 1948, Canada along with most other nations in the world signed a declaration of the United Nations promising every human being the right to life. The World Medical Association meeting in Geneve at the same time, stated that the utmost respect for human life was to be from the moment of conception. This declaration was re-affirmed when the World Medical Association met in Oslo in 1970. Should we go backwards in our concern for the life of an individual human being The unborn human is still a human life and not all the wishful thinking of those advocating repeal of abortion laws, can alter this. Those of us who would seek to protect the human who is still to small to cry aloud for its own protection, have been accused of having a 19th Century approach to life in the last third of the 20th Century. But who in reality is using arguments of a bygone Century It is an incontrovertible fact of biological science –

Beethoven #3 Symphony
Ludwig Van Beethoven Symphony #3 in E flat Major Eroica# 55
?It is fitting that this piece had such a powerful impact on the public, for it was inspired by one of the most powerful of men of the day. Beethoven had been a great admirer of Napoleon Bonaparte, whose vanquishing of royalty the composer viewed as heroic. Furthermore, with a concert tour to Paris in the works, the composer may have been considering how to smooth his reception with notoriously capricious Parisian audiences. Whatever the initial inspiration, in 1803 Beethoven complied with a suggestion from the French ambassador to Vienna that he begin a symphony honoring the “First Consul.? He described the piece as his “Bonaparte Symphony,” and might have published it under that title, had not events taken a different turn. ? 1
?In 1804, Napoleon crowned himself Emperor of France, and Beethoven, in a tremendous fury, ripped the title page from the score. According to his friend and student Ferdinand Ries, he stormed that now even his hero had become a tyrant, and that he would not dedicate a symphony to such a person. The symphonys new sub-title, “Eroica,” implied more of a general heroism than specific deeds,
