...assustada? Eu estou assustada com eles? Elena Gilbert parou de escrever. Ela encarou a ultima linha que tinha escrito e então sacudiu a cabeça, ela pousou a caneta sobre o pequeno livro com capa de veludo. Então, com um súbito gesto, ela levantou a cabeça e atirou a caneta e o livro pelo janelão da baia, onde eles pularam inocentemente e cortaram o estofado da poltrona da janela. Isto era tão completamente ridículo. Desde quando ela, Elena Gilbert, tem estado assustada em conhecer pessoas? Desde quando ela tem estado assustada com algo? Ela levantou e irritada impulsionou os braços para dentro do Kimono vermelho de seda. Ela não deu nem mesmo uma olhadinha no belo espelho vitoriano em cima da cômoda avermelhada; ela sabia o que veria. Elena Gilbert, indiferente, loira e esbelta, a pessoa que dita a moda do último ano do ensino médio, a garota que todo garoto quer e toda garota quer ser. Que agora tinha uma carranca descontente no rosto e um beliscão na boca. Um banho quente e café e eu irei me acalmar, ela pensou. O ritual matinal de lavar-se e vestir-se estavam calmos, e ela selecionou lentamente toda sua nova coleção de roupas de Paris Ela finalmente escolheu um top rosa-bebê e uma bermuda de linho branca, com um penteado que a fazia parecer uma framboesa num sundae. Bom o suficiente para comer, ela pensou, o espelho então mostrou uma garota com um sorriso misterioso. Os seus receios iniciais tinham se dissolvido, esquecidos. “Elena! Cadê você?

The Poem Elena by Pat Mora and the Story No Speak English

...The poem, “Elena”, by Pat Mora and the story, “No speak English”, by Sandra Cisneros show how immigrants that move to the United States suffer emotional problem. First of all, in the poem Elena, Pat Mora talks about how a Spanish mother feels undereducated because she is not able to understand or speak English. The mother feels upset because she cannot communicate with her children. The story no speaks English by Sandra Cisneros, talks about a lady moving to America and having trouble communicating with others. She feels embarrassed because her baby boy learned how to speak English and she could not. She starts crying because she is unable to speak English. Second, she tries to learn English by herself. She feels embarrassed, but she knows it is more important for her to learn English. She spends most of her time listening to Spanish radio. “She sits all day by the window and plays the Spanish radio show and sings all the homesick songs about her country in a voice that sounds like a seagull Cisneros, no speak English”. Finally “Embarrassed at mispronouncing words, embarrassed at the laughter of my children, the grocery, the mailman. Mora, Elena”. She fells embarrassed about her pronunciations so she locks herself in the bathroom and study’s the thick words. Even though it is hard she will not give up learning. She does not come of the house and, she fells lonely because she does not speak English very well. In conclusion; the poem and story talks about how person from other......

Hero's Journey Speech

...accomplishes countless endeavours on behalf of a group, tribe or civilisation. The model I have created that you see before your eyes Ladies and Gentlemen is my understanding and explanation of a hero’s journey within my idea for my related text, The Vampire Diaries. I have intentionally created a 3D construction with using a white tree metal jewellery frame. I constructed it this way because the white metal tree itself symbolises a tree of life. A tree of life ladies and gentlemen have been used in the notion in science, religion, philosophy and mythology. In this case, the tree of life can be related back to my related text on how Elena in… The Vampire Diaries gets introduced into the mythological world. You will also see there is a silver necklace with an oval shaped locket in a pink jewellery box. This necklace symbolises a locket that Elena is given in the Vampire Diaries by Stefan her Vampire boyfriend. Inside the locket, Stefan had put a strong minded herb called revain which is deadly to all Vampires but completely stops all mind compulsion from all Vampires. It simply means the Vampire has control over your mind. But once you have either slipped revain into your coffee or you’re wearing it on you, the vampire has no control over you. You will also notice the way I have wrapped the locket all the way around the tree; I have done this to represent that the locket is some sort of guide in way for Elena’s hero journey to symbolize how pure and important her life is.......

Problems Encountered by the Lupon Tagapamayapa in Implementating the Katarungan Pambarangay Law on Sta. Elena Poblacion, Camarines Norte: an Analysis

...Our Lady of Lourdes College Foundation College of Criminal Justice System Problems encountered by the Lupon Tagapamayapa in Implementing the provision of Katarungang Pambarangay Law in Brygy. Poblacion Sta Elena Cam. Norte : An Analysis Presented by: Mark john Encinas Ace kristofer Asiao Andrew Zano Chapter 1 The Problem One of the basic principles embodied in a democratic constitution is the supremacy of the rule of law. Law is the very manifestation of the nation of the state internal sovereignty, as a matter of fact, according to many political theorists; law is the "hall mark" or the very essence of the nation state. It is safe to assume therefore that it is the law that gives life and force to a nation state accords it with political authority and lays down limitation to the government in the exercise of its power and function. This policy mandates the state promote justice in all phases of national development. In the fulfillment of this duty the state must give preferential attention to the community, the poor under the privileged and those who have less in life. To remedy the problem, all rulers of state shall construe their people by means of law. But not all rulers or government use law as instrument of control in the same manner, a government can hardly enforce law to administer justice preserve human dignity and promote personal values of member of the barangay.

What Kind of Person Is Javier

...send to his family in Mexico. On the way, Javierg had helped Miguel and Elena, who desired to join their parents in California. In spite of his talkativeness, Javier is a real picture of unselfishness and cleverness. At the beginning of Javier’s appearance, the first of his personal characters is talkative, “a fast-flowing river of words, as if he’d been starved for conversation.” He talked, talked, and talked without Miguel’s listening and answer. Talkativeness is really a bad impression to the reader at the inception about Javier. If we keep our reading, we can find out that Javier is an unselfish person. He’s really a good man. He’d taken a big risk to attract the “federales” and make a chance for other people in the bus to escape. He didn’t care what happened to him after the risk. Even he had a family to think about, a son, a daughter, a wife. When Javier met Miguel and Elena again, and they were in the “mata gente” together, Javier did as much as he could for Elena and Miguel. Though he had been through many hard times before he could be on the “mata gente”, he still kept looking out for every big and little danger. He had not slept, “his eyes were red, and his face was drawn.” Nevertheless, he told Miguel: “Rest some. I’ll keep watch for a while.” In many times, they had to hop off and on the “mata gente”, and Javier got hurt with his ankle at once. He didn’t want to be a burden for Miguel and Elena so he pleaded them to leave him and get out of there. He didn’t......

...The characters and other things from The Vampire Diaries don't belong to me. Credit goes to the rightful owners. "Cute PJs." Damon said casually to Elena as she entered the room, twisting around something on his fingers, betraying his tension beneath the calm exterior.   "I'm tired Damon," Elena replied, a hint of warning in her voice as she watched him step closer. "I brought you this," Damon said dangling her necklace in front of her, his pathetic excuse to see her and know that she was safe. "I thought that was gone," Elena said in surprise, Damon shaking his head with the ghost of a smile on his face as memories flooded his mind, particularly when he held the same necklace in his hand, clasping it around her neck, refusing her challenge for him to compel an answer out of her. "Thank you," Elena continued reaching out for the necklace but Damon pulled back his hand. "Please give it back…" she said as fear crept into her eyes, unwillingly as her mind automatically recounted that fateful night. It played in her mind—how she walked in and found him, just like tonight, with that look in his eyes that almost made her run to him when he saved her. "I just have to say something," Damon said stepping closer to her, the words almost spilling out of him with urgency. "Why do you have to say it with my necklace?" Elena said instinctively pulling away from him as flashes of his urgent kiss, the anguish in his eyes and Jeremy dead in her arms. "Because what I'm......

Anger

...night grew darker, the sound of the thunder storm grew louder. Little Elena started to hide her self under the sheets of her soft, small, bed. She was so small, yet her mind was full of amazing things. Elena didn't like thunder; she didn't like the sound of it. Elena liked her mother's angelic voice singing to her, and her father's big, yet soft hands playing with her curls. Suddenly, Elena couldn't take it anymore. She got up from her bed and ran to the door. Her little hand touched the door's handle and she opened it. Her warm feet touched the cold ground as she walked to her mother's and father's room Elena stopped walking when she looked to her right and saw her brother, Sam's bedroom. Elena didn't want to sleep in Sam's arms. He would always tell her scary story's like "the bad boy" who kills every one, and "the bad rabbit" who kills everyone who come near his carrots. Everything Sam says is bad. So, Elena didn't go to his bed room. She only said in a whisper, "Bad Sammy," and she started to walk again. Just when she was about to go knock on her mother's bed room, she heard her mother's angelic voice cry. "Cry? Why is mama crying?" Elena thought as she turned around to go down stairs. She wanted to see why her mother was crying. Elena tried so hard not to fall, because the stairs were so big for her little feet. Just when Elena was on the last step, she saw her father yelling at her mother. Then Elena remembered her mother telling her that her father has a lot......

Los Serafines En Las Ecrituras Y de Elena G. de White

...continuamente pronunciar alabanzas a Dios sin cesar . El texto Bíblico no nos dice cuantos serafines se encontraban en el trono. Quizás habían dos líneas, una a cada lado del trono, pero de esto no podemos estar seguro. Tampoco sabemos si los serafines se encontraban en grupos o en coros. Es probablemente seguro decir que su canto era antifonal, porque los serafines clamaban dialogadamente unos a los otros, como si es que se declaraban a ellos mismos que el Señor es Santo. El hecho que Isaías podía distinguir lo que entonaban es decir que clamaban en voz humana audible para el “Santo, santo, santo”, como lo usan aquí, (qadosh en hebreo), nos da a entender la totalidad de la perfección divina cual separa a Dios de Su creaciones. Elena G. De White nos dice que el mismo Satanás fue un serafín. Que alto cargo y honor fue encomendado a Lucifer cuando estaba en el cielo. Para ser serafin y renunciar lo todo que “ Satanás parece paralizado al contemplar la gloria y majestad de Cristo. El que en otro tiempo fuera uno de los querubines cubridores recuerda de dónde cayó. El, que fuera serafín resplandeciente, "hijo de la aurora," ¡cuán cambiado se ve, y cuán degradado! Está excluido para siempre del consejo en que antes se le honraba. Ve ahora a otro que, junto al Padre, vela su gloria. Ha visto la corona colocada sobre la cabeza de Cristo por un ángel de elevada estatura y majestuoso continente, y sabe que la posición exaltada que ocupa este ángel habría......

Awakening

...people are perfect, and life is pink. It is what people lose as they mature. When experiences come and take away innocence, people change profoundly and it can be hard for them to handle the turning points in their lives. In Toni Cade Bambara’s “The Lesson” and Judith Ortiz Cofer’s “American History”, the two young girls from poor neighborhoods experience the harsh realities that change the way they see the world and people around them. In “The Lesson”, Sylvia realizes her social status and the inequality in the world when Miss Moore takes her and her friends to a luxurious toy store. In “American History”, Elena faces a harsh truth that she lives in a world where people like her are treated and judged by their ethnicity. Though both Sylvia and Elena realize their lower class statuses, Sylvia accepts that truth with resistance at first and then high determination, while Elena accepts it with shock and grief. The two girls accept the harsh reality in different ways, just like how they appear in the stories. Silvia is a leader of a group of underprivileged children, lives in a poor neighborhood. She speaks the language that indicates how tough she is. She also has saucy attitude towards people when she finds “everyone was old and stupid or young and foolish”. One day, Sylvia and her group are taken to a luxurious toy store for a lesson by Miss Moore, the lady with “nappy hair, proper speech and no makeup”. As innocent kids, they all begin with window-shopping and claim......

Review: Cinema Paradiso

...the cinema and life. They showed as well how he fell in love with a girl named Elena who was new in town as was a rich man’s daughter. The film showed how they would sneak out together even if Elena’s father was not really fond of their relationship. One day, Elena had to move away and they were supposed to meet with Toto but unfortunately did not. Later on in the film it was revealed that Elena visited the projection room when Toto went to her house and that Alfredo told her to stay away since there is only one future for Toto. Soon after, Toto had to leave for the army and would still try to contact Elena through letters and phone calls but he never received any reply. When he came back to his hometown, he left to pursue his dream which is to make films. Alfredo told him to never come back and to never look for them. Going back to the present Salvatore, he came back to his hometown for the funeral of Alfredo and he met up with Elena one last time. He learned over his stay there that he should let go of the past and to move forward in life. He also received a gift from Alfredo that his wife handed to Salvatore before he left. When Salvatore watched it he found out it was all the cut intimate scenes that Alfredo combined to make one film. At first I did not understand what Alfredo meant when he told Elena that she should stay away but after watching the entire film I learned that if Elena and Toto would have settled down, Toto would not have achieved his dream of......

Hi. Iam Elena.

...On the other hand, fulfilling the customer’s expectation may be based on their complaints, customer complaints can be an opportunities for school to improve their quality. Effectively dealing with these complaints cannot only appease the unhappy customer but also build loyalty in the eye of happy customers and make them fearless to share their feelings. However, in fact, there are a lot of unhappy students don't dare give their complaints for the program, partly because they think the complaints will not be met, the other part is because they feel shy to share the view with the teacher or the admin staff. I found that an existing regularly complaints is the ITP program does not have many extracurricular activities associated with local program at the Banking Academy; this creates a lack of dynamism as well as lack of soft skills for ITP students. On the other hand, a study noted that ‘employers prefer soft skills rather than technical knowledge in graduates they are recruiting’ (bbc.com, 2014) . In detail, according to a member of International Connection Club (ICC), there are only about 10 students in a total of 160 ITP students of the course F06 (about 6.25%) who participated in the ICC, a club whose mission is to connect ITP student with other faculties in the school through extracurricular activities. The reasons why students do not participate in the clubs are that they do not get much encouragement from the school and have to spend too much time for the assignments.......

La Tradicion Del Amor

...Tita (la hija de Mama Elena) y Pedro. Dentro de esta historia, el tema de tradición emerge. Esto aparece a través de la importancia de la cocina, matrimonio y amor, y las ideas feministas. En el texto, está claro que para que el amor verdadero tener éxito, hay que romper las tradiciones y las expectativas sociales. Un ejemplo de una tradición que se detiene Tita de ser libre para amar es Mamá Elena diciendo que la hija menor no puede casarse. Ella recuerda Tita diciendo: “Pues más vale que le informes que si es para pedir tu mano, no lo haga. Perdería su tiempo y me haría perder el mío. Sabes muy bien que por ser la más chica de las mujeres a ti te corresponde cuidarme hasta el día de mi muerte” (Esquivel, 10). Esta regla es lo que comienza la separación entre Pedro y Tita. De hecho, la única razón Pedro se casa con Rosaura es estar más cerca de Tita. Debido a esto, esta tradición de la familia crea más tensión entre Tita y hombres como John Brown y Pedo, y también su hermana Rosaura. Esta tensión es más evidente durante la boda de Rosaura. Porque Pedro no realmente la amaba, Rosaura es siempre celoso de Tita y vive una vida infeliz. Mama Elena muestra su poder cuando dice a Tita: “…ni voy a permitir que le arruines a tu hermana su boda, con tu actitud de víctima. Desde ahora te vas a encargar de los preparativos para el banquete y cuidadito que yo te vea una mala cara o una lágrima” (Esquivel, 27). A través de su frustración, Mama Elena intenta parar Tita......

Elena asked. I am now. Stefan didn't say it, but Elena knew it was what he was thinking. She could see it in the way he stared at her. She had never been so sure of her power. Except that actually he didn't look as if he were having a good time; he looked stricken, in pain, as if he couldn't take one more minute of this. The band was starting up, a slow dance. He was still staring at her, drinking her in. Those green eyes darkening, going black with desire. She had the sudden feeling that he might jerk her to him and kiss her hard, without ever saying a word. "Would you like to dance?" she said softly. I'm playing with fire, with something I don't understand, she thought suddenly. And in that instant she realized that she was frightened. Her heart began to pound violently. It was as if those green eyes spoke to some part of her that was buried deep beneath the surface—and that part was screaming "danger" at her. Some instinct older than civilization was telling her to run, to flee. She didn't move. Don't miss these exciting books from HarperPaperbacks! THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: A TRILOGY L. J.
