Surface Mining Rapes the Landscape
Once virtually abandoned, surface mining for coal has made a resurgence after the energy crisis. Previously known as strip mining, surface mining's effects on the environment—destruction of landscape, the creation of open pits where nothing will grow—were the cause of some of the first environmental legislation in this country. This paper suggests that a 1997 law designed to make surface mining harder to approve has been largely ineffective.This paper has seven pages and seven sources are listed in the bibliography.
Individual Rights v. States Rights
This research paper investigates literature that examines the inherent tension between the rights of individuals and states rights. The writer also investigates the shift that has occurred away from focusing on states rights toward a paradigm that focuses on humanitarian concerns. Six pages in length, six sources are cited.
Visual Perception: Part-Based And Surface-Based
9 pages in length. The manner by which human beings perceive what they see is comprised of a multidimensional approach of part-based and surface-based visualization that serves to segment the object and then reconstruct it in the mind's eye so as to finally see it as a whole. A chair, for example, is looked at two ways: 1) as a holistic entity and 2) as an assemblage of four legs, a seat and a back support; walking around that chair confirms there is yet another side that cannot be viewed from the front but serves to complete the structural identification of this chair. A 2-D photograph of a chair, by virtue of this understanding, would thereby make holistic perception more of a challenge due to self-occlusion; only because we know chairs have a backside do we automatically presume the one in the photo does, as well.
