The Poetry of Bruce Dawe

...that his work explicitly encapsulates the Australian way of life; he writes about the ordinary suburban citizen. “Bruce Dawe is the poet of Australia and the poet of the people. His poems effectively reveal many facets of Australian life.” Not only does this statement allude to Dawe’s work with the Australian poetic tradition, but it also informs the reader about his individual understanding of Australian life which accounts for his distinctive connection with the ordinary Australian. This essay will discuss this poet’s work with Australian poetry and will also prove the truth of the above statement with reference to three of his most popular poems: Life Cycle, Homo Suburbiensis and Drifters. Bruce Dawe lived with a family of farming backgrounds and like all of his siblings, he did not have the opportunity to complete primary school. Out of four siblings however, he was the only one to attend secondary school. His attendance to as many as six different schools was followed by his decision to move on and experience the work force at the age of sixteen. Without the possession of a leaving certificate, Dawe lived his early years whilst being exposed to numerous and divergent occupations. He worked as a labourer, farmhand, clerk, sawmill-hand, gardener and a postman. In addition, he joined the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) in 1959. After leaving the RAAF in 1968, Bruce Dawe began a teaching career at Downlands College, Toowoomba in 1969. He currently holds four university......

Grant vs. Lee

...Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee are two of the most famous generals of the American Civil War. These generals grew up very differently, but turned out to be similar in their courage, leadership and their ability to turn war into peace (Catton 405). Lee represented family and tradition, where as Grant stood for change, and moving forward. Although, tradition is very important and something I admire, I believe that in circumstances such as the Civil War, Grant and his position on looking toward the future is what was important. Based on Catton’s essay, “Grant and Lee: A Study in Contrasts,” I admire Grant and what he stood for. Lee grew up in Virginia (Catton 405). His family was devoted to tradition, family and culture (Catton 405). Lee believed that their should be “pronounced inequality” among the people, this way the leaders would rise to the top (Catton 406). Grant was very different on the other hand. He was born on the Western frontier (Catton 406). Growing up this way taught Grant to be more self-reliant and to look toward the future instead of the past (Catton 406). Both Grant and Lee would fight with as much tenacity as the other, but Grant was fighting for society, where as Lee fought for tradition (Catton 407). Lee refused change. This is where I believe he went wrong, and why I support Grant. In my eyes, I view America as a place of freedom, independence, and equality. Lee believed that there was an advantage to having inequality among the......

...Poetry is an art form in which people can express their opinions and feelings about certain ideas. Poetry communicates an idea, a sentiment or concept significant to the poet’s life, Bruce Dawe’s “Americanized” develops a concern of human attitudes towards cultural imperialism and consumerism. To depict these ideas, Dawe characterises a mother and son as America and a younger, developing nation. The poet imparts a concept of America’s consumerist society indoctrinating other nations with their western culture as an act of cultural imperialism. He also employs various other poetic techniques to assist him in campaigning the issues of cultural loss of another country such as, extended metaphor, rhetorical question, alliteration, irony, entrapment, foreshadowing, denotation, motifs and punctuation marks to further emphasise his points. The study of his poem allows us sight into the concerns of consumerism and cultural imperialism. ** there's no need to list techniques and repeat your ideas... America’s rise in cultural power has caused a raging concern from Bruce Dawe, to bring this about; he ( you mean Bruce ...expresses his emotions and opinions through his poem “Americanized”. He adopts a pun in the title to exemplify the expansion of American vocabulary into Australian literature. Not only does this pun emphasise his point on Australia being lost in America’s culture, but it also foreshadows the extended metaphor he utilises in the mother and son of the story. The mother......

There were two different societies that had developed in America, the South and the North. One of the differences was the institutionalization of slavery in the South. The Kansas-Nebraska Act would set up the snowball for war. All other problems and differences between the......

Bruce Lee

...Bruce Lee was born in San Francisco on November 27 1940 at the Jackson Street Hospital under the birth name Lee Jun Fan. His father Lee Hoi Chuen, was a prestigious member of the Cantonese Opera Company. In 1941, the 1 year old baby returned with his parents to the family home in Kowloon, Hong Kong. By age 6, Bruce had already begun to develop the charisma and confidence that would later make him a star. He appeared in his first major childhood movie, "The Beginning of a Boy" in 1946. Later in the same year, Bruce performed in "The Birth of Mankind" and "My Son, Ah Cheun" and went on to make over 20 movies, before commencing his studies at "La Salle College" in 1952. 1953 was a pivotal year in the life of Bruce Lee. After losing a street fight with a local gang, Bruce began to train in the art of Wing Chun under famed Sifu, Yip Man. His natural speed and timing, and acute mental focus, guaranteed that Bruce would excel in this complex and exacting art. In fact his precocious talent developed so quickly, that despite numerous other encounters with street gangs, Bruce would never again lose a fight. As well as indulging his passion for the martial arts, Bruce also began taking Cha Cha lessons in 1954, at age 14. The dance was popular amongst local teenagers at the time, and Bruce not only went on to win the ‘Crown Colony Cha-Cha Championship’ in 1958, but also broke the hearts of many local girls. Again in 1958, Bruce defeated reigning three year champion, Gary Elms, in the......

Tina Bruce Play Theory

...Tina Bruce was born on Tina Bruce is known as a social learning theorist whose work has been greatly influenced by Frederich Froebel. Bruce originally trained and worked as a teacher at the Froebel institute then went on to become Head of the Froebel nursery school. She is a leading figure in early childhood education and an expert in children’s learning. Bruce links the three aspects of the curriculum to the ten principles of early childhood education - The child The context - the people and places The content - what the child knows and wants and needs to know Children are whole people who have feelings, ideas and relationships with others, and who need to be physically, mentally, morally and spiritually healthy. Young children learn in an integrated way and not in neat tidy compartments. Children learn best when they are given appropriate responsibility, allowed to make errors, decisions and choices, and respected as autonomous learners. Self-discipline is emphasised. Indeed, this is the only kind of discipline worth having. Reward systems are very short-term and do not work in the long-term. Children need their efforts to be valued. There are times when children are especially able to learn particular things. What children can do rather than what they cannot do, is the starting point of a child’s education. Imagination, creativity and all kinds of symbolic behaviour [reading, writing, drawing, dancing, music, mathematical numbers, algebra, role play......

Robert the Bruce

...Robert I, the Bruce Born on July 11, 1274, at Turnberry Castle in Ayrshire Scotland, Robert Bruce also known as Robert the Bruce is known as Scotland’s greatest hero. Yet, the movie Brave Heart would have you think William Wallace takes that title, making Bruce out to be nothing more than a self-serving opportunist. History however, shows us that Robert Bruce was the patient and cunning leader that Scotland needed to face the King of England Edward I, and later his son Edward II, to win Scottish independence from England. Family Background Robert’s father was known as Robert de Brus, 6th Lord of Annandale, descendent of David I with a distant connection to Scottish royalty. His mother was Marjory Countess of Carrick a lady of Gaelic decent. Robert the Bruce was married to Isabella of Mar in 1295 and later Elizabeth de Burgh in 1302. He fathered five legitimate children and several bastard children between the two marriages. Early life of Robert the Bruce The struggle for control of Scotland began in 1286 when Alexander III died leaving his infant grandchild Margaret to rule. In 1292, John Balliol was selected by some Scottish auditors to be King of Scotland. This caused a dispute on who should rule and King Edward I of England was asked to settle the dispute. John Balliol was Robert the Bruce’s rival to the throne. In 1292, at the age of 18, Robert the Bruce and his father pledged loyalty to Edward I at Berwick upon Tweed.

Answer: Eddie Liu one of Lee and Li senior assistants found a loophole in the power of attorney from one of the firm’s clients, SanDisk Corporation (SanDisk), which allowed him to illegally sell shares and sneak out from Taiwan. Unfortunately, Lee, and Lee had no insurance to cover this embezzlement. Lee and Li and Sandisk corporations and United Microelectronic Inc.

Lee and Li might get bankrupt and might not be able to pay their employees. The relation between Lee & Li and the Sandisk companies will be affected.

Bruce Trail

...Bruce Trail Hike One of Canada’s hidden gems and one of it’s most beautiful areas to explore; The Bruce Trail. This is a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment and is Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath. The trail runs throughout southern and central Ontario. It starts in the Niagara Escarpment of Queenston and ends in the northern part of Ontario, in Tobermory. It preserves over 8,000 acres of irreplaceable Niagara Escarpment landscape, 885 kilometres in length, and 400 kilometres of side trails. The trail is marked with white and blue rectangular blazes (painted lines). The white blazes indicate information and direction on the main trail, where the blue blazes indicate the same thought for the side trails. These can be found on trees, fence posts, and rocks. The land was always there for people to go upon, although the trail was official open in 1967 and is Canada’s original long-distance hiking trail. Myself and my class travelled in the Caledon Hills section and travelled ten to twelve kilometres of the trail. It took approximately three to four hours of a hike. When we left school around 8:30 in the morning, it took about an hour drive to get to the hills. While on our way there, we picked up and met our tour guide, Greg Vincent; the former President of the Bruce Trail Association. He is eight-years old and one of the most active people I know. When we got off the bus, we started our hike right away. Being able to go hiking on the......

He has not been outside his home premises for those 8 years. When he’s finally prepared to move on with his life, he makes a hospital appointment to get a check-up. Whilst taking the blood, the nurse seemed to be short with Bruce as she took the blood form his arm violently by just stabbing the needle in his arm and moving his limbs rather roughly when checking his joints. Later, after the X-rays have been developed and looked over, the doctor seemed to show an attitude to Bruce. They doctor says under his breath “ turns out billionaires aren’t indestructible”, after telling Bruce that he has no cartilage in his shoulders, elbows and knees and that the tissue lining his kidney has eradicated with very little of it left. He is also told that the tissue lining his skull is deeply scarred. The doctor also laughs at the fact that Bruce has told him he has been a recluse......

...Search BRUCE LEE: ENTER THE SIX-PACK Enter The Six-Pack: Train Like Bruce Lee By Arnav Sarkar Last updated: Mar 30, 2015 40 years ago, young athletes found inspiration in Bruce Lee's peerless intensity and wiry strength. Not much has changed since. Get out the heavy bag and make Lee's training style work for you! "Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless." These legendary words are often attributed to Bruce Lee, and while it's debatable whether they actually originated with him, there's no doubt that they strike at the core of his martial philosophy. His legendary and eclectic fighting style of Jeet Kune Do, "the way of the intercepting fist," focused on crafting his strikes around his opponent's incoming attack, at a moment when anything extraneous would just slow him down with tragic results. As a result, he was as unpredictable as he was entertaining. Openness and flexibility also defined how Lee approached his physical training. While trainers and his peers wasted their time with territorial squabbles and quests for one-size-fits-all training programs, Lee was receptive to a wide range of traditions. He took what he needed from martial arts, bodybuilding, and other styles of training. He was devoted to his barbell and kettlebells, but also loved his Nautilus-style Marcy Circuit Trainer. He practiced his kicks and punches daily with full intensity, but he also ran, cycled, and jumped rope. Images courtesy of Bruce Lee Enterprises, LLC. All Rights Reserved. BRUCE......

Lee College

...Lee College Financial Statements ACC 380: Accounting for Not-For-Profit Organizations June 4, 2012 Lee College Financial Statements Why do Not-For-Profit organizations need financial statements? The accounting system for nonprofits is designed to capture the economic activities of the firm and its financial position. The financial statements are constructed based on the “Accounting Equation” in which: Assets = Liabilities + Net Assets (Keating, 2008). This equation is very helpful, but not show us how or why net assets change over time. This is the purpose of the financial statements. For Lee College, a private not-for-profit, the financial statements required under the FASB Statement 117 are the Statement of Financial Position, Statement of Activities, and Statement of Cash Flows (Copley, 2011). The focus of this paper will be on the Statement of Activities and the acceptable alternative. The Statement of Activities’ purpose is to show revenues, expenses, gains, losses, and reclassifications and to show the changes in net assets by net asset class (unrestricted, temporarily restricted, or permanently restricted) (Copley, 2011). FASB Statement 117, as stated earlier, requires the Statement of Activities as part of the three required financial statements for a private, not-for-profit college. However, there is an acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities. An acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities is to present two statements: 1) Statement...
