111: Edgar Degas - Not the Typical Impressionist
... bathing. He enjoyed painting women bathing and combing and normal things that women do instead of having them just stand there and look pretty. Other artists of this time such as Monet and Renoir were studying the effects of light on a painting, and different brush strokes and color combinations. Degas was studying Japanese prints. These prints inspired him to try different visual angles and asymmetry, something that many of the other artists of the time would never have attempted. The only artist who even comes close to ...

113: Academic Discourse Vs. Popular Discourse
... There is an academic discourse that involves more detailed terminology and ideas, and deals with a more specific detailed body of knowledge. Academic discourse is more for the interest of people that are experts or studying a certain field or profession. Then on the other hand, there is popular discourse that deals with more everyday issues and uses more of a basic language that almost anyone who can read can understand ... did not seem to notice either of those in URB magazine. In comparing the two discourse communities, I realized that to understand what is going on in the academic world, a lot of time and studying must be put into grasping and understanding the information that is covered in the specific field that interests you. Everyone wants to be able to show off their level of intelligence and seem somewhat of ...

... Despite all these hardships and setbacks, Manya continued to work hard at school. Although her sister Bronya had stopped going to school to act as the family's housekeeper, she desperately wanted to go on studying to become a doctor. This was almost impossible in Poland, however. In Poland, women were not allowed to go to college. Many Poles took the option to flee from Russian rule and live in France ... eventually ended up moving out of her sister's home and into a single cold damp room, eating only enough to keep her alive. Fortunate enough for a scholarship, Marie was able to go on studying until she had completed two courses. In her final exam-inations, she came in first in the subject of mathematics and second in physics. By 1894, at the age of 27, Marie had aquired not ...
115: James Watson's The Double Helix: A Review
... between the two. Watson's "adventure" begins when he receives a grant to leave the United States and go to Copenhagen to do his postdoctoral work with a biochemist named Herman Kalckar. Watson found that studying biochemistry was not as exciting as he hoped it would be; fortunately, he met up with Ole Maaloe, another scientist doing research on phages (Watson studied phages intensively while in graduate school). He found himself ... of his experiments and soon he was helping Ole with his experiments more than he was helping Herman with his experiments. At first, Watson felt like he was deceiving the board of trustees by not studying the material that the board sent him to study. However, Watson felt justified because Herman was becoming less and less interested in teaching Watson because of Herman's current personal affairs (Herman and his wife ...
116: Hinduism And Budism
... takes form in Nirvana. Nirvana occurs when people release their yearning for a false selfhood, which is similar to Hinduism. Paradoxically, as with Hinduism, the act of extinguishing this yearning occurs simultaneously with an enlightenment. Studying Hinduism and Buddhism has been surely an enlightenment for me. To my amazement, Hinduism actually addresses a few questions I have had before. I’ve wondered about the way life is connected and how life ... the tendency to view our ancestors and traditions to be inhibiting us from reaching some far off realization that no Buddha or Brahmin or anyone has ever obtained. In Conclusion, I do wish to continue studying religions beyond high school maybe it will lead me to some discovery.

... and they will stay until they are in standard 6, which is until they are 12 years old.

... woman in physics and was recognised as one of the greatest scientists of the century and won 2 Nobel prizes, one for physics in 1903 and one for chemistry in 1911 for isolating radium and studying its chemical properties.

120: On The Short Story Phineas Com
... Phineas had. This constant preoccupation with Phineas often got Gene side tracked. Gene was very involved in school, one could say that Gene was intelligent.
