91: Santiago Ramon Y Cajal {Famous
... to read. Cajal was not always interested in science. He underwent many changes in his early life that led him down the path that eventually made him a Noble Prize winner. He came from a modest background. His father was a modest surgeon in a very small village in the Spanish countryside. Cajal owes his excellent work ethic to his father who impressed upon him the idea of hard work leading to success. Cajal came from a ... specific parts of nervous tissue because the cells were so interconnected. Cajal shared the 1906 Nobel Prize in medicine for his discoveries pertaining to neuro staining. This was a great honor for him, but the modest Cajal did not believed it was an honor that he deserved. He did not want the added attention that went with being a Nobel Prize winner. It was especially stressful for him because he ...
92: The Deadly Social Cloud (Satir
... as Cuba and Mexico are the lead producers of tobacco. The United States cannot control production of other countries. Some others may say that the human rights of the smoker will be violated if my proposal is put into effect. What about the human rights of the victims around them? Are they not aloud to have healthy long lives? I say that the right to survive for the majority of the ... smoke over the years my aunt acquired lung cancer at the age of twenty-four, she later died at the age of twenty-eight.

93: The Dangers of Nuclear "Progress"
... bombs has the ability to wipe out an entire country. The United States did make an attempt after World War II at eliminating nuclear proliferation by proposing the Baruch Plan in the United Nations. This proposal stated that all nuclear technology and materials be placed under international ownership and that all nuclear weapons be destroyed. However, the Soviet Union feared that the United States would always have a military advantage if they gave up their plans for building a nuclear device and, therefore, rejected the proposal. I think that the refusal of the Soviet Union was a big mistake on their part. Not only did they put the safety of the U.S.S.R on the line, but of the whole world, as well. By rejecting that proposal, other countries would soon follow America's example, producing nuclear weapons of their own. By 1952, the Soviet Union and Great Britain had produced and exploded their first nuclear weapons, and nuclear technology was ...
94: Islamic Religion
... in Islam have the right of inheritance and the right of individual independent ownership free from their father, husband, brother, son or anyone else.

The Hajj begins with a bath or shower, followed by a "state of sanctity" called "Ihraam," where the male pilgrim wears seamless sheets of material, and the woman wears a "modest" dress. During the Hajj the pilgrims stay away from sexual intercourse, vanities, arguments, misconduct and bad language. Bathing and regular hygiene are allowed, but vanities such as shaving and cutting the hair is not allowed ...
95: Cuban Missile Crisis: The Edge Of War
... place a naval "quarantine"n Soviet Ships on the way to Cuba. This was to serve as a warning to Khrushchev (Mills 238). The members of Excom that wanted an air strike were against the proposal. Those in favor of immediate, pre-emptive airstrikes argued that the missiles that were already on the island would not be affected by the blockade. They could not promise the success of an air strike ... Ambassador to the United Nations, Adlai Stevenson, proposed giving up a naval base at Guantanamo, or pull the Jupiter missiles from Turkey. Both suggestions were rejected. There were too many problems with the air strike proposal. The Commander-in-Chief of the United States ordered the blockade to begin (Mills 242). By Sunday, America's allies knew of the situation, special briefings were given to members of the Organization of American ... the second message as if it never existed, and reply to the first. Within an hour, the president's reply was sent back to the Soviet premier. The Jupiter missiles were left out of the proposal, but it accepted the removal of the missiles under UN supervision. President Kennedy promised not to invade Cuba and stopped the blockade. On Sunday, October 28, Khrushchev agreed. The crisis was at an end ( ...
96: To Say Or Not To Say Letters A
... the Reverend Mr. Collins, who will inherit Longbourn after Mr. Bennet s death because he is the nearest male relative. In his letter, Mr. Collins proposes a visit to Longbourn and hints at a further proposal of marriage to one of the Bennet daughters. The reader quickly learns of this man s nature because of the contents of his letter as well as Mr. Bennet s reasoning behind his acceptance of the proposal. Mr. Bennet makes fun of his unusual writing style and pomposity, and also makes snide remarks to his family about him. Ultimately, Mr. Bennet agrees to the visit because he wants to laugh at Mr ... Darcy s letter so important, it is also the contents of the letter itself that allow for questions about his true nature to be answered. Writing more from injured pride than to renew his marriage proposal, Darcy is nevertheless sensitive and honest while justifying and explaining his actions. His complete acknowledgment of his faults and sincerity are evident throughout. The proud, prejudiced, and arrogant man we were introduced to at ...
97: The Woman Warrior
... a compliment is met by denial and self degradation. Moon Orchid is disgusted with Brave Orchid s children. Why didn t you teach your girls to be demure? Moon Orchid expects the girls to be modest. When she complimented them, they agreed with her! Not once did she hear a child deny a compliment. She is truly surprised. She never expected such arrogance, at least that is what she saw it as. Brave Orchid takes a different stance on modesty. From the text, I can conclude that Brave Orchid is not modest. She chooses every opportunity to point out that her children are so wonderful. My children are also very bright. Let me show you. And then Brave Orchid leads Moon Orchid to the collection of athletic ... and pride. In Moon Orchid s point of view, when complimented children should state that they are bad, or ugly, or dumb, contrary to the compliment. Moon Orchid has been taught to be humble and modest, never an arrogant show-off. Brave Orchid feels that her children should not be ashamed of the things they could do. She wants to let everyone know. Brave Orchid and Moon Orchid s opinion ...
98: Crittenden Compromise
... it. Northern abolitionists wanted an end to slavery; however, southerners were opposed to such a drastic measure. In the midst of Senatorial confusion and congressional debate arose the Kentucky Senator, John Jordan Crittenden, with his proposal. Initially brought to the Senate floor on December 18, 1860, the compromise met with mixed reviews. Crittenden was willing to amend his compromise to suit his colleagues' ideas, but it was not enough, and the proposal was ultimately unsuccessful because of a variety of reasons, leading to the deterioration of Southern unity and loyalty towards the Union. During the 1850's, the growing debate over slavery was nearing a definite boiling ... south of the line would be up to the territory to decide. This measure was designed to try and balance the number of free and slave states in the Union. The second article in the proposal called for the stripping of any Congressional power to abolish slavery. It stated, "Congress shall have no power to abolish slavery in places under its exclusive jurisdiction, and situate within the limits of States ...
99: Genome Sequencing
... that genome sequencing has advanced the science of phylogenetic classification even further. The failing view of the organisation of life was that all living things were either plant or animal in nature. In 1990, a proposal for a new, natural system of organisms was published, based on the rRNA sequencing revolution. The more recent genome sequencing era has supported this original proposal, and as a result three domains of life are currently recognised; Archaea, Bacteria, and Eucarya, as shown in the universal phylogenetic tree below. When the first archaeal genome (Methanococcus jannaschii) was sequenced in 1996, it ... three domains. The discovery that the archaea were in fact a distinct group of organisms from the bacteria challenged the long-standing eucaryote-procaryote dichotomy that has dominated our view of life since it's proposal in the 1930's . It has long been recognised that this eucaryote-procaryote scheme was in need of review. While the eucaryotic form of cellular organisation defines a proper phylogenetic unit, procaryotes are only ...
100: Canterbury Tales - The Knight
... Africa, and Asia Minor where he "was of [great] value in all eyes (l. 63). Even though he has had a very successful and busy career, he is extremely humble: Chaucer maintains that he is "modest as a maid" (l. 65). Moreover, he has never said a rude thing to anyone in his entire life (cf., ll. 66-7). Clearly, the knight possesses an outstanding character. Chaucer gives to the knight ... The knight can do no wrong: he is an outstanding warrior who has fought for the true faith--according to Chaucer--on three continents. In the midst of all this contenton, however, the knight remains modest and polite. The knight is the embodiment of the chivalric code: he is devout and courteous off the battlefield and is bold and fearless on it. In twentieth century America, we would like to think that we have many people in our society who are like Chaucer's knight. During this nation's altercation with Iraq in 1991, the concept of the modest but effective soldier captured the imagination of the country. Indeed, the nation's journalists in many ways attempted to make General H. Norman Schwarzkof a latter day knight. The general was made to appear ...
