    In the story “Anthem”, by Ayn Rand, collectivism plays a big role. The people are restricted by the collectivist government, the leaders banning freedom of speech and freedom of thought. The people are punished if they are to think for themselves, or go against the regime. Collectivism is the belief that the group should take priority over individuals in it, which is the main belief in the society that Equality 7-2521 lives in. It is the inverse of Individualism.

    I had to understand why Seurat used such a difficult technique for his work. I then came upon the theory that perhaps he wanted to produce a deeper sense of life in his paintings. All things in the world are composed of millions of cells, and these cells create objects, color, and everything that practically exists. I imagine that Seurat's motive was to utilize this scientific law in his work to give an atmosphere of life, texture, and movement in the scenes that he…

    Everyone has read, at one point or another, the heart-wrenching tale of partners being separated by war and of the trials and tribulations of them persevering through such a trying time. It is a very well-known story because it is easy to imagine how one would feel without their significant other. Imagining this scenario from a child’s perspective, however, is not. Without being a military child, it is nearly impossible to imagine yourself in that situation, as it is so unique. The deployment of…

In order to talk about critical theory and its genuinely critical features I believe it is essential to make a clear distinction between critical theories and scientific theories. According to Frankfurt School there are 3 main categories of…

    In conclusion, we reported the synthesis of fused and isolated triazoles based on thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidines. The synthesized 1,2,4-triazolo compounds were screened for their anticancer activity at a concentration of 10 μΜ against a panel of 60 cell lines derived from nine different types of cancers, and also screened for their PDE 5 inhibitory activity. The possibility of combining 1,2,4-triazolo moiety to thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidines should open new opportunities for the rational design of…

    It is a sin to write, love, think, and feel freely. Anthem, a fictional story by Ayn Rand, tells the story of a dystopian society, far in the future. You are all equal and are never to say, “I,” “Me,” or “Mine.” Equality 7-2521 is a young boy in search of a world where he can discover and investigate on his own. However, when his scientific discovery gets rejected, will he ever be safe in his own community ever again? Throughout the course of the text, the theme of Relationships has changed and…
