UK Inner City And Its Relationship To Public Policy : 12 pages in length. Inner-city life is no picnic for those who have to endure its ravages.

It is often the oldest, poorest and most overly populated, which establishes it as a haven for crime, violence and poverty. The inner cities of the UK are no different than the inner cities anywhere else around the world in that they reflect upon society's lesser privileged.

Ambrose Bierce: Animal Characteristics : 8 pages in length. Ambrose Bierce maintained that humanity mirrored many of the same characteristics as animals, stating that "in each human heart there is a tiger, a pig, an ass, and a nightingale. Diversity of characters is due to their unequal activity." It can easily be argued that Bierce's perception is quite accurate in that all of mankind has absorbed a great deal of idiosyncratic tendencies reflective of animal behavior. For example, as is mentioned in his quote, the human heart exhibits a vast array of illustrative attributes: the tiger's ferocity and independence; the pig's greed; the ass's stupidity; and the nightingale's delicacy and benevolence. Indeed, finding all of these qualities within a single individual is considerably more difficult than recognizing one or two; however, most of humanity displays a combination of all such animal characteristics at some point throughout life. The writer discusses these traits as they relate to Iago and Desdemona from Othello, Mustafa Sa'eed from Tayeb Salih's Season Of Migration, and Reginald Nwankwo and Gladys from Girls at War by Chinua Achebe. No additional sources cited. Ambroani.wps
