To Drill or Not

...To Drill or Not To Drill? by Eli Turnup While reading this article I found myself thinking of the positives that come with alternate sources of energy, and I had to take into account what be negative in going that route. What I got from the article was the idea of using alternate sources of energy to replace usage of oil in an attempt to provide an everlasting source for the future. By attempting to provide an alternate source of energy there would be an increase in development of new factories to produce this new source of energy to the world. I feel that on the outside looking in it seems to be a fantastic idea to have an alternate source of energy available to the world. This would bring a great deal of relief to the public. Just thinking of how I could save money on gas alone makes the idea of alternate energy seem like the best thing for the future of the world. I find myself becoming selfish when thinking of this issue. When looking at the opposing view I close my mind from accepting any information that can switch my opinion. This is something that I have notice about myself while reading this article. I also repeat the points that I have given my view as I define myself from accepting the opposing view’s point. I believe that if I become more open minded about issues that I to this day don’t agree with that I may be able to overcome the hurdle that I’ve encountered while reading this article. With this article I went in closed minded because I have been led......

Third Girl

...Agatha Christie - Third Girl CHAPTER ONE HERCULE POIROT was sitting at the breakfast table. At his right hand was a steaming cup of chocolate. He had always had a sweet tooth. To accompany the chocolate was a brioche. It went agreeably with chocolate. He nodded his approval. This was from the fourth shop he had tried. It was a Danish patisserie but infinitely superior to the so-called French one near by. That had been nothing less than a fraud. He was satisfied gastronomically. His stomach was at peace. His mind also was at peace, perhaps somewhat too much so. He had finished his Magnum Opus, an analysis of great writers of detective fiction. He had dared to speak scathingly of Edgar Alien Poe, he had complained of the lack of method or order in the romantic outpourings of Wilkie Collins, had lauded to the skies two American authors who were practically unknown, and had in various other ways given honour where honour was due and sternly withheld it where he considered it was not. He had seen the volume through the press, had looked upon the results and, apart from a really incredible number of printer's errors, pronounced that it was good. He had enjoyed this literary achievement and enjoyed the vast amount of reading he had had to do, had enjoyed snorting with disgust as he flung a book across the floor (though always remembering to rise, pick it up and dispose of it tidily in the waste-paper basket) and had enjoyed appreciatively nodding his head on the rare occasions when......
