Born on July 10th in Munich, Germany in 1895, Orff refused to speak about his past almost as if he were ashamed of it.

His father's regiment band would often play through some of the young Orff's first attempts at composing. Although Orff was adamant about the secrecy of his past, Mos

    According to Webster's the ability to reason or understand(Jackson, 1997, p.1). Well, most of us have the ability to reason and understand, so does that define us as intelligent? Many would argue that different individuals are intelligent in different areas. In reality, there is not only one answer to this question. Many different factors play into the question being asked. For example, psychologists believe that behaviour determines one's intellect, whereas, others believe it's hereditary or environmental.

    The condition "homosexuality" commonly evokes a negative impression from most people, especially in conventional societies as the Philippines.

    Sexual Abuse As A Social Problem

    Sexual abuse, like many forms of abuse, has been a persistent problem throughout history. It has been with us since biblical times; in the Old Testament (2 Samuel 13) there is a story of Tamar, the young daughter of King David, being raped by her older brother Amnon. It is apparent that the issue of sexual abuse is not a new social problem, but a growing one. Everyday, over 1,800 adult women are raped nationwide.
