Process Essay - How an Aerosol Can Works - How an Aerosol Can Works      At one time or another, most of us have probably used an aerosol can.  With just a push of the button, we easily and quickly apply just the right amount of furniture polish, bathtub cleanser, or underarm deodorant.  It is obvious to us that the aerosol can is more convenient than the old-fashioned jars of liquid polish or cans of powdered cleanser, which can spill or be applied too thickly.  At the same time, however, most of us probably do not know how the aerosol can works.  We accept its ease and convenience without realizing that the aerosol can is quite a complex container....   [tags: Expository Process Essays] 574 words

The Decline of Morals and Morality in America - America is in a Moral Decline       The founders of America believed that a popular government and its laws necessarily rested upon an underlying moral order that preceded both the state and man-made law. They referred to this transcendent moral order in the Declaration of Independence as "self evident truths" and "the laws of nature and of nature's god" (Barr pg. 211). For a republic to work, the founders thought, the people had to internally guided by commonly shared moral values.
