Dark Water by W.E.B Du Bois 1. We see Europe’s Greatest sin precisely where we found Africa’s and Asia’s, - in human hatred…. (Page 28) * I like how he is so honest in this book. He doesn’t care who reads his book. 2. It is curious to see America, looking on herself first, as a sort of natural peacemaker. ( Page 28) * Du bois makes it look like you are there. This was my favorite quote in the book.

3. If I cry amid this roar of elemental forces, must my cry be in vain, because it is but a cry……? ( Page 29) * I like how he describes his feelings using the nature around him. He has great word choice, its crazy.

4. A fortune for the world and worldlings base! (Page 32) * This quote is so unique. Once again, he has great word choices. 5. I speak for the world and golden joys! ( Page 32) * I would agree with Du Bois. He is so honest he would be a great speaker for the world. 6. The ruling of men is the effort to direct the individual actions of many persons toward some end. (page 78)

7. Men sneered at “ democracy” and politics, and brought faith and philanthropy to rule the world. ( page 79) 8. Moreover, that treatment shows no certain signs of abatement. ( pager 34) 9. The real Pacifist will seek to organize. (page 35) 10. The ruling of men is the effort to direct the individual actions of many persons toward some end ( page 78) 11.

Dark Days

...Marc Singer's documentary Dark Days follows a group of homeless men and women who live in an abandoned subway tunnel in New York City. They have built one room huts, they even have electricity, pets, beds, and they work hard to scrounge to earn money. They feel lucky to be a step above the homeless on the street who have nothing to call their own. Their participation in the making of this film allows them to eventually move out of the tunnels when forced to by Amtrak officials. This is not just a film on the lives of the homeless, it is about human condition. How they got there, how they get by, and how they get out. We learn in detail the cause and effects of how this small group of people ended up living in a tunnel together and formed a community. Some have turned to drugs to forget the horrors of losing children and doing jail time. Others are simply unwanted by their familes or society. As dangerous as it looks, they found the safest place to live where they could still live their lives on their own terms; never losing their wit and humor. Decisions on making this documentary were all made spontaniously. The director Marc Singer does not appear in the film, Singer explained his process by stating, "I'd been living in the tunnel for about three months before the idea came up about making the film and really became good friends with the people" (Singer, 2000). He had never even seen a movie film camera before. Singer ultimately used a 16mm camera with......

Dark Tourism

...the SelectedWorks of Dr. Philip Stone January 2005 Consuming Dark Tourism: a call for research Contact Author Start Your Own SelectedWorks Available at: http://works.bepress.com/philip_stone/5 Notify Me of New Work e-Review of Tourism Research (eRTR), Vol. 3, No. 5, 2005 http://ertr.tamu.edu ______________________________________________________________________________ Philip R. Stone Department of Tourism and Leisure Management University of Central Lancashire Dark Tourism Consumption – A call for research There is an increasing plethora of sites associated with death, tragedy or the macabre that have become significant tourist ‘attractions’. As a result, the term ‘dark tourism’ has entered academic discourse. However, dark tourism literature is both eclectic and theoretically fragile. This is especially the case with regards to consumption and its implications for understanding the ‘dark tourist’. Thus it is suggested that the dimensions of dark tourism consumption have not been extracted or interrogated – only assumed. Consequently, with death and the nature of dying at the crux of the dark tourism concept, this article calls for the development of consumer behaviour models, which incorporate contemporary socio-cultural aspects of death and dying. It is suggested that this in turn will lead to a better understanding of consumer motives within the dark tourism domain. Keywords: dark tourism, death, contemporary society, consumption By Philip......

Dark Ages

...Humanities January 18, 2015 DeVry University Professor Clarke-Peterson Outline/Proposal on Dark Ages I. Introduction and Thesis The Dark Ages refer to the medieval period in the studies of humanity. The general duration of the early Dark Ages is considered to be from 450-1000 century (CE). It is believed that the fall of Roman Empire brought about an age of “barbarism and religion” (Gibbon 18th CE). This era, compared to both the pre-dark ages and the post-dark ages, Renaissance, witnessed no significant scientific innovations, no great art produced, and no valiant emperors or leaders ruling the early medieval Europe (Middle Ages, n.d.). These are the major factors which led to the coining of the phrase Dark Ages by Petrarch, the great Italian scholar, in the 14th CE (Wikipedia). This proposal is about the vital role of flourishing Irish social order, in the Dark Ages, in the re-conversion of Europe to Christianity. II. In the Dark Ages, when the entire Europe was reeling under barbarism, the Irish social order was flourishing. * The Romans had never invaded Ireland, and thus it remained unaffected by the downfall deteriorating the social order of rest of Europe (Eaton & McCaffrey, 2002). * While the entire Europe was victimized by the Dark Ages, the Irish monks were the torch-bearers of luminous beam of civilization (O’Connor & Steves, 2014). * In the Dark Ages, religion was one binding force that kept the hopes of people alive.

Dark Matter

...What is Dark Matter? The Oxford dictionary defines dark matter as a non-luminous material which assumed to exist in space. But what does this mean? If dark matter is non luminous how do we know it’s there? How can we detect it? These are the kind of questions I will try to answer in this short article. Discovery: In the mid to late 19th century scientists observed that stars orbiting nearby galaxies were rotating faster than expected. The speed calculated indicated that the gravity created by them could not contain the matter within the stars. Therefore meaning that the stars should have been ripped apart from their own gravity. This indicated that there could be some other form of matter that is acting within the galaxy; which could have certain properties that explain the larger amount of gravity e.g. more massive matter. Properties of Dark Matter: Figure 1 Figure 1 Dark matter is hard to “get your head” around as scientists say that you can’t see it; then how can it exist? Dark matter is said to be “non-luminous”, therefore it does not absorb, give off or reflect light, which means we cannot observe the existence of Dark Matter (But we could detect it: See section on “Detection”). Detection: Although we cannot see Dark Matter it supposedly makes up 22% of the universe, compared to 4% of normal matter (See Figure 1). The evidence of how dark matter could exist is from experiments held in particle accelerators, such as the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. As Dark......

Dark Ages

...Time of the Dark Ages *************** Devry University Time of the Dark Ages The Dark Ages as a term has endured many evolutions. This time was referred to the Dark Ages because among all citizens, Europe went from having absolute leaders into adopting the Roman law system. The expression of the “Dark Ages” came into play during the 17th century when many enlightenment writers convinced that they were much greater to their ancestors and began using this term to scorn an era that they found to be very difficult to survive in. The Dark Ages can be referred to the entire time of the Middle Ages from 500-1500 A.D. or mostly for the early Middle Ages from 500-1000 A.D (Curtis, 1992) (O'Sullivan, 2012). It is also commonly referred to the period of time that accompanied the fall of the Western Roman Empire. When the Western Roman Empire was destroyed, unknowingly many people were going to begin to engage in a practice and experience devastating changes in their lives. Fewer career opportunities, literacy, and education were just the beginning of the fall. Cities then became smaller in size because the Roman Empire wasn’t able to provide the Roman tax revenues to maintain the services. Society inadvertently prepared to emerge in modernity through the preservation of classical literature and scripture. Over time education and literacy was mostly offered to the ministry. Christianity itself remained to spread East throughout the lands. During this time, most of the......

Dark Matter

...Dark matter guides growth of supermassive black holes Summary This article is about a new study between elliptical galaxies dark matter and their black holes. Previous studies revealed a relationship between a black hole’s mass and the mass of all the stars in an elliptical galaxy. We know of dark matter because of its gravitational attraction by holding galaxies and galaxy clusters. The dark matter halo is in every galaxy and is as dense as a trillion suns. There was a study of over 3,000 elliptical galaxies where researchers used star movement to track and weigh the galaxies’ black hole. To weigh the dark matter, they took x-ray measurements of the hot gas surrounding the galaxies. Due to the dark matter weighing so much it molds new elliptical galaxies and the growth of its central black hole. Relevance This article is relevant to topics covered this week in the lecture and text book. It relates specifically to chapters 14 and 15 of the text book regarding black holes, elliptical galaxies, and dark matter. Black holes are very dense objects that nothing, not even light, can escape from its surface. Elliptical galaxies tend to have brighter stars than spiral galaxies. The Milky Way galaxy is a spiral galaxy with a bright core and spiral arms. Dark matter doesn’t react with electromagnetic radiation and makes its presence known only through its exertion of gravitational force. The text book states, “We now estimate that 90% of the mass of galaxies is......

Dark Money

...Dark Money and its Influence on US Politics Dark Money and its Influence on US Politics Abstract The influence of voters is overcast by lobbyists who funnel channels of dividends toward the candidate or party of their choosing. With our self-galvanized democracy, this is becoming all too common as our voices in collusion begin to fade. To placate reign, we acknowledge fault as the American public pleads with the top justices to limit lobbyist inequity through entitled equity only to be dismayed by the brittleness of our justice system as it concedes to an ambiguous constitutional amendment that endures free speech equates to filled pockets. Dark money’s malignant strike is designed to silence the many who toil for the sake of the few who take. Conservatives protest anonymity for protection from public outrage which could lead to dwindling sales and lost revenues from faithful lobbyists and big businesses. The American public demands disclosure to ensure greater confidence and voter turnout and prosperous turn in gracious candidacy. In a political climate built on attack ads, clarity is essential for due process not matter how high the stakes are for candidate. Association will either lead to adequate support or an inevitable defeat.

Dark Matter

...Dark Matter Matt Cannon (928) Physics 222 2/15/02 Final Draft Dark Matter The ultimate destiny of our expanding universe depends on how much matter it contains and whether or not the amount of matter will be enough to one day stop the expansion. When astronomers add up all the visible matter (matter that emits or reflects light) in the universe, the result is that there is clearly not enough to stop the expansion of the universe. However, they have discovered over the past several decades that there may be additional matter hidden from view.1 This raises some important questions. What is this dark matter made of? How can it be detected? Astronomers first found substantial observational evidence of unseen matter in the early twentieth century when studying the galaxy M31.2 They discovered that the velocity curve for the outer limbs of the galaxy, which should drop off with increasing radius as mandated by Kepler's Laws and the Virial Theorem, leveled off at approximately 200 km/s. This observation was confirmed in the early 1970’s when radio astronomers found that hydrogen gas at the edge of galaxies moved with roughly the same velocity as hydrogen gas at the center of galaxies. If the visible matter seen in galaxies is the only source of mass then the observed uniform velocity of hydrogen gas is a direct violation of Kepler’s Laws and the conservation of angular momentum. Thus, the simplest explanation (which is usually the correct one) is that the......

The Dark

...to kill. On a higher level Moose are a magnificent animal that are gratifying to have around. Canadian Flag: The flag is the symbol of the nation's unity, for it, beyond any doubt, represents all the citizens of Canada without distinction of race, language, belief or opinion. Beaver: A Beaver creates a dam by chopping down trees with its teeth. These dams make creeks and rivers into small ponds and small lakes. Thus creating homes, waterhole's and habitat for other creatures. Canoe: A Canoe is important to Canada because it was extremely important during the fur trade. It made it easier and more efficient to travel. Sea Doo: A sea doo is important to Canada because the product is a Canadian invention. Because we have so much natural water, the sea doo’s are used a lot. Curling: this is one of Canada's most watched sporting events, a little like the Super Bowl of the north. Toronto Blue Jays: The Toronto Blue Jays are important because they are a great baseball team, and they are very well known around the world, and they are Canadian. 1) The significance of the placing of each artifact in every room was because we tried to match up the products with each room. For instance, Mountains, Moose, Canadian flag and the Beaver are all placed outside, because you wouldn’t have those things in a house most likely. 2) No our house is not representative of all of Canada because everyone has their own interpretations of what makes up Canada.

The Dark Knight

...1 Revision Practice Angelia Renee Cady Com/156 May 15, 2011 Jennifer Iott Revision Practice After reading the draft of The Dark Knight, if there are any revisions to be made to improve this paper, keeping in mind the concept behind essay revision. Revising is looking for ways to make the ideas that this essay is built from clearer, stronger, and more convincing. When revising, always keep in mind that he/she may have to add, cut, move, or change whole sentences or paragraphs. When writing something like, “The Dark Knight was the most popular film of 2008,” there needs to be some kind of fact that backs this statement up. The awards that the film was nominated for or won can be mentioned to help give this comment some weight behind it would be appropriate. If it were me writing this essay on the Black Knight, I would want the world to know how good the story line is. Rearranging the order of the paragraphs would be appropriate, it is my opinion that the writer jumped ahead of himself/herself. I find that the information is a little scattered. Paragraph #2 and #3 needs to change places. The information in paragraph three is a continuation of the first paragraph. It gives the audience a look into why they will always view The Dark Knight as an outstanding movie. All the information concerning Batman Begins should follow after the second paragraph. This means, the original second paragraph is the third......

Dark Nebulae

...Name Instructor Course Date Dark Nebulae Dark nebulae are nonluminous nebulae that are observable since it obscures light from other sources. Nebulae are diffuse clouds of interstellar dust and gas. The shape, size, and characteristics of nebulae may vary significantly because some are the remains of dead stars and others are star nurseries. Dark nebulae are found in areas with no nearby stars. These clouds do not emit or reflect enough light for them to be visible. In fact, the view from the stars behind them is usually blotted out by the dust particles. This paper will exclusively explore on dark nebulae. Normally, these clouds range from 1-10 AU and are less dense than the deepest vacuum in the laboratories of the Earth. They are also thick such that they obscure light from the stars behind them. However, the size of these clouds can be from a few light years up to 600 light years. Additionally, the total mass of dark nebulae can reach several million masses of solar. These clouds can appear to be big depending on the number of stars in it. If there are many stars, the clouds will appear huge, but it can appear small if there are a few stars in it. These clouds existed from a long time ago. Claudius Ptolemaeus did the first record of stars that appeared to be nebulous around 150 AD. Since then, many astronomers have continued discovering these clouds until an American astronomer Beverly Turner Lynds compiled and published a survey of dark nebulas in the year 1960.......

I could never get over the beauty of her jet-black, on black with chrome interior, 2010 Shelby GT 500.I hopped in, turned the key, and sped off down the road.I walked up to Larissa’s door and knocked. She answered right away and flung her arms around me.“Hey baby,” She said softly standing on her tiptoes to kiss me lightly.“Hey love,” I said picking her up around her waist, “We need to talk,” I said walking her into the house still in my arms.We walked into the living room and snuggled up on the couch.“What did you want to talk about, babe?” she asked.“You know my real father is the devil?” I asked.“Yes, Lucian baby, I do. Why?” she asked, her beautiful eyes, that changed from dark green to light green, bright with confusion.“I’m here to tell you that since you’re pregnant with my child, and I love you more than anything on the planet, you now are my mother’s successor as the queen of Hell, at my side, the king,” I said.“What are you talking about?” she asked. “My father said I was elected to be leader.”“What about the baby Lu’?” she said.“Everything will be fine, our baby is an angel,” I said.Larissa laid her head to rest on my chest, “I love you, where you go, I go,” She said kissing me.“I love you too.
