In were The Red Fern Grows, Billy loves his family so much, that he walks two days to the city to get himself some dogs and he trains them very well and enters them in the hunt and win a lot money so he can let his mom’s dream come true of moving to the city. So Billy’s the kind of person who will go out of his way to make his family happy.
One example Billy would risk his life every single day by staying up most of the night in pure darkness. Billy went to the city to get dogs, to train them very well, so he trained his dogs every single day so he could enter them in the hunt, so he could win money so his mom could pursue her dreams of moving to the city Another example is Billy risked his life by walking two days to the city and while he was walking he almost got killed by a panther. Billy new his mom and dad wouldn’t want him to walk two days to the city and almost get killed by a panther, but he walked to the city anyway to win money for his mom. A final example is again Billy risked his life in the hunt from possibly being killed by a wild animal or he could have frozen to death. Billy would dedicate his time to train his dogs so they could learn how to hunt and bring in the big bucks. Even though Billy doesn’t always do the right thing it’s mostly for his family and he would do anything for his family. So he’s the type of person who will go out of his way to make his family happy I knew this because when he said to his dogs “look I know this is hard but I’m doing this for momma just please keep…...

Billy Elliot

...moving into the world. However, with self-determination and the support of others it can potentially lead to a positive outcome. Stephan Daldrys film Billy Elliot (2000) explores these notions and highlights the importance of rising above circumstances and embracing the support of others by enduring such experiences in order to succeed in the transition of moving into the world. The film reveals how individual determination and strength is often required to transition from one world to another, also exploring the idea of how transitioning into another world can be daunting and unexpected for the individual whom is making the change and that everyone's world is different and needs to be accepted. Firstly the film explores the notion of how individual determination and strength is often required to transition from one world to another, this idea is reflected throughout the 'private lessons and rising tensions' scene. In this particular scene billy and his ballet teacher Mrs Wilkinson are both equally committed, consistent and also remain perseverant regardless of the circumstances in which they find themselves. We see that Billy embraces the support of others and in turn, is on the road to potential success. As billy enters the hall, a high angle shot of him is used representing his powerless emotion. The shot reveals vulnerable billy, as he has not yet embraced the support he has been given. Also soft, mysterious music begins to play in the background, as the lights dim.......

They range from the very simple to the difficult and abstract. When entering into a nursing career, thoughts should be kept at the more simple levels first moving on to more difficult items as knowledge and experience increases. Caring is one of the most basic elements of nursing and a great place to start a foundation to build on. What is caring? Is caring really as simple as it is made out to be? How can nurses develop themselves into caring nurses that focus on holistic healing? What guidelines are there to help nurses learn what caring really is and how to treat patients? The reality is that there are numerous resources available and much research has been done in developing a caring attitude and spirit. What is caring? Is it simply looking after someone? Making sure they are safe? Keeping them informed and involved in their care? The truth is it is all of these and many more. A caring nurse relationship involves an emotional link between both nurse and patient that includes the ability to talk openly about hard situations and reason together (Sumner, 2010). Nurses need the ability to blend the physical demands of caring with the emotional support that patients will require. A true caring relationship will lead the......

Billy Ansel Dark or Light

...Joshua Biship James Mense English 102 05 October 2014 Billy Ansel: Dark or Light? In the book, The Sweet Hereafter by Russell Banks a story is told of tragedy that strikes a small town. Banks tells this story through multiple character each of which brings their own understand and view of the accident. Billy Ansel was one of the characters used to convey his message. Billy is a parent of two children in the town of Sam Dent. Billy is a veteran, business owner, and widower. All of these moving parts have played huge roles in shaping the character that Billy portrays but nothing could prepare him for losing his children. At the beginning of the story Billy is shown as a person to look up to and rely upon in hard times. But there is another side to Billy that is explored in the latter half of the book.

Billy Budd

...English 120, First Paper Billy Budd and The Great Mutiny “The Spithead Mutiny and Nore Mutiny were two major mutinies that involved the sailors of the Royal Navy in 1797. There was also unhappiness and minor incidents on ships in other locations in the same year, but none as severe as these two well-known ships. The mutinies had the potential to cause great danger for Britain, because at the time the country was at war with the Revolutionary government of France, a time of great unrest. There were also concerns among some members of the British ruling class that the mutinies might be the trigger to a wider uprising similar to the French Revolution” (3). The story of Billy Budd details the historical importance that deals with the British Navy and the year of the Great Mutiny taking place in the year of 1797. During this time there were two mutinies that took. This is also the time when the Mutiny Act was enforced. “The Incitement to Mutiny Act 1797 was an Act passed by the Parliament of Great Britain. The Act was passed in the aftermath of the Spithead and Nore mutinies and aimed to prevent the seduction of sailors and soldiers to commit mutiny” (1). One was at Spithead and the other happened at Nore. The Nore mutiny was so serious that it went down in history as the Great Mutiny and this resulted in the book “Billy Budd.” The setting of “Billy Budd” took place during the last decade of the eighteenth century. The young sailor, Billy Budd, was a new recruit on......

Billy Collins

... In Billy Collins’ poem “Introduction to Poetry” he is trying to get you the reader to stop analyzing poetry and immerse yourself within a poem, enjoying it as well as discovering what the deeper meaning is. He does this by using many different metaphors to help the reader to approach poetry with less reluctance and be able to enjoy the many pleasures of poetry. Don’t try to find a concrete meaning in it. Experience the beauty of the poem, developing your own interpretation. In the first stanza he tells the readers to “take a poem and hold it up to the light like a color slide”. He is wants the readers to think of a poem as a color slide and by holding it up to light it allows you to see it more clearly, seeing the true beauty. He goes on to use a metaphor comparing the body of a poem to a buzzing bee hive. Stating “press an ear against its hive”. He is saying that the poem is a hive of a bee, which to most is unknown, scary and something you want nothing to do with. Collins is suggesting that you explore the unknown and see the beauty that might lie within. Like the sweet honey in the bee hive. The metaphor of “dropping a mouse into a poem and watch him probe its way out” is the one I like the most in the poem. That metaphor is implying that you put a mouse in a poem like you would an experimental maze. As the mouse wonders through the maze he discovers different areas of the maze and finally finds a reward. In poetry you might not understand it but if you wonder...

...Advanced Nursing Care Concept in Nursing Caring is a wide and assorted theory that can be defined in a number of ways. Caring is the practice by which nurses in a medical institution react to patients as exceptional people and make out their needs and feeling as they settle them. A large number of people consider caring as one of imperative aspects of nursing, to be precise, caring is a requisite component of nursing. Therefore, understanding the diverse concept is just like comprehending all that takes place in the nursing profession. Simply put, the concept of caring is a vital component of the nursing profession. Literature Review The concept of analysis is based on the empirical linguistics, but the most important issue is that, the nursing practice theories have their basis on the concept of analysis. Regardless of the wide variety of methodological strategies employed in the field of nursing, medical experts collectively concur that caring is not a retiring component that is correctly measured. Daly, Speedy, & Jackson (2009) states that Fealy argues that caring does not form the series of activities, but it forms the ways of taking actions that depend on the framework and is clear on the values. Leininger argues that caring is the most essential and critical ingredient to any curative process. Leininger, further dismisses the prospects of the responsibility to encourage nurses to get this concept of caring. Alternatively, Leininger prefers the concept......

Billy Elliot

...the movie. Stereotypes play a significant role in this movie as they represent the main obstacles that keep Billy from achieving his dreams. Billy has to overcome the fact that his family, and even Billy himself at the beginning of the film believes that only “puffs” or homosexual men would want to do Ballet. Similarly, he has to fight the stereotype that “real” men play football, or box, or wrestle. In what way do the male characters in the film influence Billy or function as a role model? Male characters play an important role in Billy’s life as they both help him and keep him from accomplishing his dreams. Billy’s dad for instance, at the beginning of the film is a distant father who is set against Billy learning how to dance. However by the end of the film this changes as his dad begins to fulfill his duty as father and raises enough money for Billy to audition for the royal ballet. Meanwhile Tony influences Billy by showing him the dangers of following in his family’s footsteps by going to work in the mines, and by pushing him to dance as a means of self expression when they get in to conflict. Comment on many critics’ description of Billy Elliot as a “feel-good movie” To label Billy Elliot as “feel-good” movie is to ignore the political, social, cultural and historical context of the film, thereby missing a significant portion of the film. Billy Elliot is a British film as the accents, the scenery, and the dialogue all attest to, and is therefore......

...The aim of this concept analysis paper is to analyse the key characteristics of the concept of caring. Caring is a wide and assorted theory that can be defined in a number of different ways but it is very often related to nursing. Indeed, it is one of the first synonyms for nursing offered by nursing students and by the public talking about nursing. (M.E. Parker, 2013, p.7). Caring is displaying kindness, a feeling of being concerned, attached to someone, feeling empathy for others and an unconditional love. Many people consider caring as one of the imperative aspects of nursing. In order words, caring is an essential value in the personal and professional lives of nurses. Therefore understanding the caring concept is just like comprehending the relationship that a nurse has with a patient. As stated above caring is a foundational value for nursing practice and the reasons it is such a crucial element of the nursing practice will be presented throughout this analysis. We encounter caring especially in relationships with loved ones where a feeling of being concerned is present and a strong attachment is felt. Some examples of caring relationships could be a mother and daughter relationship or a friendship. A mother cares about her daughter and this feeling can be represented by a continuous concern about her studies or her happiness, but it can also be pictured as a very strict woman that wants the best for her daughter. A person can also care about their friends. By......

...Leadership Lessons from Billy Beane I just returned from seeing Moneyball, a great baseball flick. Brad Pitt plays Billy Beane, the GM of the Oakland Athletics 2002 squad that won an unprecedented twenty straight games that season—despite having the lowest pay roll in the major leagues. Season after season Beane would watch teams with deeper pockets steal his star players. When he realized that he couldn’t compete with the New York Yankee’s salaries, he decided that he needed to change the way the game was won. He needed to actually evolve the game by reimagining it in such a way that you couldn’t just buy the World Series. There are some leadership lessons in this true story for church leaders. First lesson: Do not prematurely resolve the tension. Billy refuses to accept solutions from his scouts and assistants that were based on the old paradigm. At this point, he had no solutions himself. He simply held the tension. He steeped himself in the conflict that ensued when he consistently contradicted the “experts”. He increased the evolutionary tension. It’s my experience that most leaders in the church capitulate in the face of conflict. How do we support our leaders and congregations to hold the tension, when everything in us wants to resolve it prematurely for the sake of a false peace—a peace that will ultimately keep us from evolving? Lesson 2: Staying in the fire focuses your attention on outside-the-box solutions. Billy stumbles upon a completely new model in a young......

...(Introduction you must introduce Billy Elliot (2002) directed by Stephen Daldry) Paragraph One: The context of Billy’s World * Depicts the obstacles of transgressing cultural and economic boundaries * Set against Britain’s bitter 1984 coal miner’s strike – frames of posters encouraging workers to keep to the strike are juxtaposed with lines of police officers holding up shields * Explores the effects of economic struggle on the community and individual * The recurring image of an armed police presence represents the social conformity that blocks Billy’s transition * Family’s economic struggle due to the strike – emotional scene of Jackie cutting up his wife’s piano for firewood at Christmas * Juxtaposition of Billy’s impoverished working class neighbourhood of crammed red brick townhouses with Debbie’s more affluent suburb with well-trimmed gardens and open spaces – the steep, cobblestoned backstreets reflect the confined uniformity of Billy’s existence * Billy’s aspiration of becoming a ballet dancer is contextualised within an environment of limited opportunities – the mis-en-scene of billy preparing breakfast shows a cramped kitchen with clothes hung on a makeshift clothesline. Yet Billy glides around to “Cosmic Dancer”, oblivious to the mess and disorder * Yorkshire slang and working class dialect is used in the film to add credibility to the story * Slow motion images of jostling torsos and beating shields during the miner’s confrontations......

Billy Elliot

...relationship in the visual text Billy Elliot, is that between Billy and his father Jackie. Their relationship is a complete exemplification to the idea of gender role stereotypes. With Jackie being a typical hard man who sees no prospect outside of the mining industry, and Billy, who possesses a great deal of talent toward the deeply taboo art of ballet, the conflict of gender role expectations is amplified. Because of Jackie and Billy's relationship, the viewer can therefore understand the fact that Billy faces a major challenge, as far as gender roles are concerned, if he chooses to pursue a life of Ballet. Jackie gives powerful illustration to the stereotypical psyche of male roles in society. His identity as a miner of North England during the miners' strike and ex-champion boxer already reverberates the fact that he holds very traditionalistic male values. He literally cannot perceive life outside of the mining industry "Why would I want to go to London? There are no mines in London" In effect, when Jackie sees his son Billy in dancing school behind his back for the first time, there is major repercussion, "You, out, now!" He then drags Billy back home and informs him that "Lads do football... or boxing... or wrestling, Not friggin' ballet", expressing his views of gender role. Billy then questions him "I don't see what's wrong with it", to which Jackie replies "You know quite nicely what's wrong with it" Jackie expects his son Billy to realize the fact that......
