I have got to keep you up with the music I’m listening to here in Salem! Being involved in this whole “witch catching” business, means that I don’t get much recess. But, when I do, I love to listen to Ed Sheeran’s song Drunk. He understands me! There are so many valuable quotes from the song which I feel really get my battle against Proctor in this entry. One of the first quotes I noticed was, “without you to hold I’ll be freezing”. As you will have known from my previous diary entries, I loved John Proctor. But, recently I’ve been yearning for him more than ever. Since he decided to reunite his affections for Elizabeth, I was driven into the cold because I had no-one to hold. Without John, I had no-one to live for. Further along in the song (and in entry 2), his fondness of his wife grew more and more, and his acknowledgement of me was wearing thin. I think Ed captured my feelings well when he expressed “Though I know you’ll never love me like you used to”. This song lyric also links in with entry 1 of my time in Salem. Lastly, this lyric from the song understood my perspective of John now, at the present time. “Open bottles of beer but never champagne”. I feel this quote relates to me because Ed is basically saying that by drinking beer instead of champagne, he is feeling quite low, cheap and perhaps unworthy of drinking such an expensive drink. I believe that the metaphor understands me because I think is saying that instead of playing it the safe, goody-goody way (champagne), I will play it the raw, disobeying way (beer). Overall, I believe that Ed completely gets me in his song Drunk. And I just can’t wait to see where the future of music will turn to. I wonder what type of music they’ll have in the year 2012… Lots of Love, Abigail Williams xx

Dear Diary, I am writing this entry from the Salem General court where we are…...

Forbidden Love

... This restriction arouses the concept of forbidden love, where two people in love are prohibited to meet each other or be with each other. Forbidden love is seen primarily as thought-crime in Big Brother's empire Oceania. Thought-crime is basically when a person simply thinks of committing an action that would cause harm to the society or lead to the start of the revolution. The best example of forbidden love is seen when Julia wanted to meet Winston. For them to communicate out of work would have been thought-crime so to cope with it they meet in Victory Square. There, without any eye contact, Julia informs Winston where they can meet secretively. This sort of meeting is forbidden love because previously Julia had given Winston a note saying "I love you" which directly shows the love and thought-crime is the equivalent of forbidden (Orwell 108). The fact that Julia and Winston met in Victory Square also hints forbidden love because two lovers had to inform each other as to where they could meet in secrecy thus showing the restrictions of Oceania. Another example where forbidden love is seen is in Mr. Charrington's house. He is a prole, people of Oceania who are said to be equal to animals and have no contact with the real working class of Oceania, and his house supposedly has no telescreen. This poses as a great opportunity for Julia and Winston to meet without being caught. Again this comes back to the topic of forbidden love because to have to meet in secrecy is...

Forbidden Island

...As defined by the creators of the board game, the primary object of Forbidden Island is to, “ . . . work together to keep Forbidden Island from sinking in order to buy enough time to capture its four treasures. Once . . . captured . . . (the team of adventurers) must make it to Fools’ Landing and escape by helicopter to win. If however, the island sinks before (the team) can complete (its) tasks, the mission ends in defeat!” Since a game like Forbidden Island was designed to encourage collaboration between the players, the class was divided into several small-sized self-management teams that would be responsible to learn how to play Forbidden Island together under minimal supervision. In addition to the challenging task of capturing the four treasures while keeping the island from sinking, the class was also tasked with reflecting on the course material as it applies to our individual experience as a member of the team of adventurers while playing Forbidden Island. According to organizational behavior theory, working together as a self-managed team typically allows team members to perform challenging and complex tasks that require a high level of interdependence among members. Furthermore, self-managed teams that demonstrate high group cohesiveness and collective efficacy are more likely to successfully achieve goals and accomplishments. In fact, subject matter experts agree that the tasks that are usually assigned to self-managed teams enhance intrinsic motivation by......

Journal

...Journal March 19, 2011 I just finished reading Booker T. Washington’s autobiography called “Up from Slavery.” In his book he gives a firsthand account about what it was like to be a slave and even more interesting, he talks about what it was like to hear that President Lincoln had freed the slaves. His book covers his life from slavery to his founding of the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama. I could not put the book down. It is a must read for every African American. When Destiny and Demetrius come to stay with me for Easter break, they will be required to read it while they are here. They need to know the history of our people and this book will give them some insight about how African Americans ended up in this country and what they had to endure. Unlike other ethnic groups, African Americans are the only ones who did not come to North America of their own free will. There was no migration, emigration, immigration. We were brought here in chains and enslaved for many years. We were not seen as human, only property. We had absolutely no rights and no way to return to Africa. I would imagine that many of the slaves tried to hold on to some of their African traditions but I am sure that was hard to do. According to what I have read, slaves were forbidden to carry on the traditions they had in Africa. They were even given American names in an effort to make them feel disconnected from their homeland. Because the slave trade continued for decades, the number of Africans......

Selling Starbucks in the Forbidden City

...Philosophy 484 Professor Neiman 3/22/12 “Selling Starbucks in the Forbidden City” Ever since the Starbucks retail outlet has opened in the “Forbidden City” of Beijing, China, there has been a huge controversy over whether this store deserves to be in this sacred area of China’s history. I believe that Starbucks has a moral obligation to operate a retail store in the “Forbidden City.” The first objection from some Chinese citizens is that Starbucks is highly considered an American brand, and that American commerce is destroying Chinese culture that they claim goes back 5000 years. In some cases, people may believe that the Chinese have the cultural right to maintain their culture in places of great history, which would definitely apply to the Forbidden city Museum. This claim against Starbucks contradicts this statement somewhat since there are already thousands of stores in the museum. If the Chinese would have wanted to keep the Forbidden City sacred, you would think that they would have not allowed any stores in the area to keep it original so everyone could see the real history behind the place. Some may counter by saying that Chinese stores should only be allowed simply because it is already part of the Chinese Culture. In the case, it states that there are shops that sell American products, such as coke, cookies, and other merchandise. Wouldn’t this be considered American products and upset some Chinese citizens since it is considered American and not......

Forbidden Tree

...Forbidden Tree Callie Franklin HU300 Forbidden Tree As a child, bedtime was the best time of day. Mommy and daddy would look on the bookshelf and find the best exciting stories ever. The majority were old biblical stories that passes from generation to generation. Adam and Eve was the most popular story read to me quite often, a great story. An awesome story line that describes a relationship of betrayal between man, God, and the consequences of disobedience. Adam and Eve contains a countermyth with a countersymbol of the Garden (Janaro, Altshuler, 2011, pg. 47). This story is a great way to help understand whatever is asked of us to do from God or an authority figure, may be for our own good. And it can teach us how to make better choices in life. In The Art of Being Human: The Humanities as a Technique for living, it states that many myth scholars believe that the archetype of the Golden Age had its origins in the biblical account of the Garden, the earthly paradise Adam and Eve called home until they were cast out for eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge (Janaro, Altshuler, 2011, pg. 47). Adam and Eve is a great story that every child should read about. In the beginning God created the heaven, earth, and man. God created Adam and then created Eve from one of Adam’s ribs. They both were in the Garden of Eden and had everything they wanted. But God told them they could eat from any tree they wanted, but not the tree in the middle of the garden....

My Forbidden Face

...Stephanie COM 242 Book Analysis: My Forbidden Face One distinctive theme of this Communication Culture course is the balance between oppression and privilege. These very opposite concepts are seen in almost all of our course readings, films, and discussion board assignments. According to the Fabric of Oppression Theory, privilege is when an individual experiences certain advantages that are based on their race, class, sex, religion, sexual orientation, and able-bodiness (FOOT handout). “The privileged groups have opportunities not provided to other groups because of the current social system in place and may not recognize that they ‘benefit’ from the system” (FOOT handout). Oppression is on the other end of the spectrum and involves an individual lacking the same opportunities as someone who is privileged because of the same sub categories of race, class, sex, religion, sexual orientation, and able-bodiness. Latifa’s novel My Forbidden Face is one that shows many strong examples of oppression for Latifa and her family. Not only do we see disadvantages in her life based on her sex and religion, but the Taliban goes even further to control the people of Kabul by providing restrictions on the media and their everyday routines. Throughout My Forbidden Face, we see the main character of Latifa being oppressed from the very beginning, especially because of her female sex. Outlined by FOOT, we see several “isms” that could be taken out on a person, or group of people. One...

Alcohol: Forbidden in Judaism?

...Alcohol: Permitted or Forbidden in Judaism? Alcohol use in Jewish Law is contradicting. There are several examples in the Torah and other Jewish sources, where alcohol, which is most of the time wine, is permitted and sometimes even suggest but on the other hand, sometime alcohol is condemned. I will discuss the different sides and state what the Jewish Law is trying to allow or condemn alcohol use and abuse. In places in the Torah wine seems to be a very important attribute to several different occasions in Judaism. Wine is used for Havdallah and Kiddush on every Sabbath and many other Jewish holidays. Mitzvot and blessings are recited on a cup of win. Under the Chupah we bless the couple over a cup of wine, a circumcision we do the same and we also have four cups of wine at the Passover Seder. Even in text, wine is described as “bringing joy to God and man”(Judges 9:13). Even during the Holy Temple days, wine was used for sacrifice and even has it even has its own blessing (Hagafen). Even with all of these uses of wine for Jewish circumstances, the Torah clearly states “Do not drink wine or strong drink, neither you nor your sons with you, when you come into the tent of meeting, so that you will not die—it is a perpetual statute throughout your generations…”(Leviticus 10:9) The Torah is very clear in that drinking wine is not permitted. Noah, whose righteousness help God spare the world, was condemned for his excessive wine consumption. Other texts......

Forbidden Things Are Always Tempting

...* Mark Twain said that he more things are forbidden, the more popular they become. And I think that it’s true. There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable. Because people always want something and it’s very easy to get into the habit which can be extremely harmful to your health. Since the ancient past, the human race has experienced temptation and attraction towards forbidden things. It started with the story of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman in the history. They were drawn to the forbidden fruit. In Psychology, forbidden fruit theory is an idea that anything prohibited becomes even more desirable. Ours brains pay more attention to things we aren't allowed to have or to do. It must be mentioned that people are very special creations. We can choose what we want: good or bad. It is our free choice that allows us to respond to the attraction of prohibited things. And unfortunately, we don’t think that the consequences can be frightening. Let’s take an instance of using drugs or drug addiction. We all know that taking drugs is prohibited everywhere in the world. Yet, millions all over the world are suffering from this problem. Today this kind of attraction towards forbidden things can be dangerous and eventually leads to miserable scenarios. The results of such attraction end up in addiction which destroys mental and physical health, disrupts family and social life and creates different sort of unpleasant situations. According to the......

...Journals Student’s Name Institution Journal 1: Part 1 Work in my opinion refers to the legitimate means by which man makes a living. Every individual in life has demands that need fulfillment. Individuals have responsibilities that they have to handle. Work enables individuals to earn a living that in turn enables them to meet these responsibilities. It implies that for any normal human being to live comfortably, one must work. Besides earning a living, work enables to utilize our time well. The world today could be full of vices if everybody had nothing to do. They deem that the fiend employs of redundant minds explains this situation clearly. Individuals ought to embrace the work and take it positively rather than viewing it as a punishment. Work should be as part of us, and a means through which human beings maintain their dignity and live respectable lives (Connors and Paul, 2009). The culture of rewarding hard workers cultivated in me the culture of hard work and a positive view towards life. From my tender age, I learned that the work was the way of life and the only way through which individuals could better their lives. On academic grounds, I must state that the teachings by our teachers towards work had a lot of impact on me. They taught work as a virtue and changed my perception towards work. Family provided me with my first interaction with the work. My parents could divide the work and go ahead to reward those who did good work. It instilled in me the...

...Weekly Journal Date: 12/15/14 Day: Monday Time: 3:40 pm I didn’t get anything done on the project this weekend. I hope the other team members fared better than I did. I did look over the project management reference guide. I better understanding of what’s expected for the capstone. The reason I didn’t get much done was because I was getting stuff ready for Christmas. Every time I thought I was finished, I’d get another call saying I need more help. I thought I’d only be busy on Thursday, but that didn’t work out. I got a call on Friday and Saturday as well. I should’ve got started yesterday but that wasn’t happening either, football Sunday. So I guess I’ll have to make it up this weekend. This project is going to be difficult. It entails a lot of work. We have to come up with a project name, which we haven’t done yet. We have to have a risk management plan, a change management plan, a quality management plan, and a project charter. All of which is going to take careful planning and a lot of research. Hopefully we will be able to come to the same conclusions on how this should be laid out, financed and implemented. I think we have a pretty good group of people, Clinton, Stephanie, I, and Said I think. I’m confident that Mr. Swope will give us all the help we’ll need. Also I’m so glad this is the last quarter, the end is near. I can’t wait to graduate. Date: 12/22/2014 Day: Monday Time: 10:45 pm I’m feeling better about this project, now that we got some......

Forbidden Knowledge

...Forbidden knowledge, different than secret knowledge, is used to describe forbidden books or other information to which access is restricted or deprecated for political or religious reasons. Forbidden knowledge is commonly not secret, rather a society or various institutions will use repressive mechanisms to either completely prevent the publication of information they find objectionable or dangerous (censorship), or failing that, to try to reduce the public's trust in such information (propaganda). Public repression can create paradoxical situation where the proscribed information is generally common knowledge but publicly citing it is disallowed. A rich set of examples exist through history. Well known to Western readers are forbidden books as defined by the Roman Catholic church in the last few centuries. Through the years of isolation in Japan and China all Western literature was forbidden. Recent (20th century) repressive regimes (e.g. communism in Eastern Europe and China) placed strong restrictions on so called "foreign propaganda". In many cases this resulted in people defending themselves by creating political jokes. Jokes through history have been a powerful instrument to undermine state authority and the public truth associated with it. Today's (2005) examples in repressive regimes are still uncountable but even liberal societies sometimes impose limits to the freedom of the individual to spread information that is not politically correct. For example,......

Forbidden Love

...Lauren Garner ENG 210 Mark Taylor October 20, 2013 Essay 1 Forbidden Love In reading classic British literature a theme has come across of forbidden love and the perils it holds. Forbidden love harms those who wield it and sometimes it even harms those the love is aimed at. Forbidden love, also known as “fals amor,” is shown in pieces like “Morte Darthur” or “The Franklin’s Tale,” from “The Canterbury Tales.” The forbidden love shown in these tales is always were one person is married and the other is not. “The Franklin’s Tale,” “Morte Darthur,” and “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” all reveal how forbidden love will end tragically. Each of these works has a married woman who is either loved by another or is in love with another. However, no matter the case the one with the forbidden love is aggrieved in the end because they love cannot become mutual or accepted by others. “The Franklin’s Tale” tells of a woman, Dorigen, and a knight, Arveragus, who marry for love. Arveragus must go to battle for a few years and a nobleman, Arelius, comes to light that loves Dorigen. Arelius and Dorigen make a bet where if Arelius wins Dorigen must become his bride. She agrees confidant in his ability to fail in this task. Arelius succeeds, though, with the help of a sorcerer after two years of despondency. When Arveragus arrives home he finds Dorigen distraught, upon hearing the bet he decides that she must keep her side of the bet, though it pains them both greatly. Upon hearing of......

...xxxxxxxxxxx class 09/03/2015 Journal #1 He drew a circle that shut me out- Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout. But love and I had the wit to win: We drew a circle and took him in By Edwin Markham Journal #1 Edwin Markham in his poem tells a story of a person who keeps himself closed. The circle in the first line symbolizes a boundary that he creates to shut everybody out and stays to himself not allowing anyone to understand him. At the end of the poem we see that love wins. People who he left out of his circle came along and showed him that they have concerns for him. Thanks to their love and being clever convinced him to open. They created a different circle and took him in; they made him trust them, and believe that he doesn’t have to be alone. I have been there; I can definitely relate myself with the character in the poem. When I lost my parents at age 20, I kept everyone away and did not let them speak to me. Even though, I did not want to talk to anyone they still kept calling and visiting me. After several years I figured that they were my real friends. They did not want to live me alone, they wanted to help me, but it took me a long time to realize that. The poem is related to our lecture materials about women in the workforce. For me the poem is a message for women that they have to fight for their rights by being clever. The should not follow the stereotypes that they believe in but speak up and be open to change. The more women decide...

Forbidden Love

...Forbidden Love Felicia Bell English 125:Introduction to Literature Instructor Kamisha Kirby July 10, 2012 In “Country Lovers” by Nadine Gordimer the reader is told the tragic love story of Paulus and Thebedi. We follow the seemingly innocent beginnings of their mutual attraction to the incomprehensible ending that leaves an infant dead. Although the ending is unexpected it is not shocking because from the start of the story it is foreshadowed that Paulus and Thebedi will not live happily ever-after together. The main theme of the story is forbidden love. The setting, race and class of the main characters makes it impossible for the reader to imagine the story ending in any other way then those characters being separated. The story is told from the point of view of an omniscient third person narrator. This allows us to know how the main characters feelings for each other build and diminish. In the first line of the story the narrator tells us that,” The farm children play together when they are small, but once the white children go away to school they don't play together anymore, even at holiday(N. Gordimer,1975).”.The line signifies that although the characters themselves are not aware of what awaits them in the future the narrator is aware. The narrator also gives the reader insight into the social formalities of the time. The reader learns from the narrator that the story is set in a society where someones position in life is largely determined...
