Preface Compilation of this extract involved numerous connections of societal development realities whereby tangible sources that supported the document provided critical information, particularly on Los Angeles historical fundamentals. Civilization is the major aspect explored in this study; the supportive materials helped my writing with analogous information that clarified the encompassed perspectives of societal detrimental issues that indicates the need for improvement, as pointed out by Mennell (p. 2). I have to acknowledge these sources for laying a foundation that proved the societal view and responses towards creation of possible change through literacy basics in their perspective community based activities. Social and political class play critical role in shaping people’s life whereby in sometimes they can be destructive rather than constructive in the societies. The view of human nature as a basic reality received in diverse perspectives indicates the need for substantive measures in taking people’s consideration when the moral basics are involved. Formulation of substantial laws to provide governance prospects are areas that many of the authors relied on in this study have proved to require substantive corrections to guide the people who seem to encounter the hardships of accepting others, particularly with the illusive approaches on society well-being. In most cases, as seen in this study, the ones who do not like changes of accommodating everyone regardless of their race, gender, and social class may practice the detrimental activities, which lead to the victims undergoing critical moments of isolation. This leads can finally lead to unworthy circumstances and find people with restless lifestyles (Corlett, p. 8).

An Essay About Determination in the Movie "Apollo 13"

...Ron Howard “Hello, Houston. This is Odyssey. It's good to see you again.” These were the words Jim Lovell said as he splashed down into the Pacific Ocean after spending 8 days in a freezing hell. Stuck in the confined quarters of the Apollo 13, those words were the embodiment of achieving your goals through determination. During the flight there were more displays of determination than I could possibly cover, so I am going to write about the three that stuck out to me the most. Jack Swigert was the one docking and flying the shuttle and didn't want to leave any room for error in his skills. Ken Mattingly, spent hours upon hours getting the boot sequence for the computer right so they could correct the shuttle path. Last but certainly not least the engineers building a CO2 filter out of spare parts without any proper tools. Jack Swigert was moved up from back up crew to main crew after Ken Mattingly got the measles. He was just as trained as the other guys but they weren't a team. Everyone was a little sceptical about his skills because they had never flown with him and had had Mattingly as a pilot for a very long time. Swigert was doing a routine docking simulation when the people running it threw some engine failures at him without giving him a warning light, but he recuperated quickly and pulled off the manoeuvre flawlessly. Coming off of this success and being accepted by your new crew mates most people would be on top of the world and not feel the need......

Dedination and More Detailed Story About Fm

...maximum difference of about 50 percent at the higher noise levels. Across all noise levels, the average difference between the fixed and the adaptive systems was about 25 percent. Subjectively, too, most or all (depending upon the activity) of the subjects preferred the adaptive (dynamic) over the fixed system under all the listening conditions; for example, during classroom activities, in a public aquarium, at home, etc. Cochlear Implants In the cochlear implant study, the subjects were divided between users of Advanced Bionics and Cochlear Americas devices. The authors (Jace Wolfe and five colleagues) remind us that cochlear implants include speech processing features not found on hearing aids; the implication is that results obtained with hearing aids are not necessarily applicable for cochlear implant users. The investigators note the possibility that these speech processing features may interact with the operation of the dynamic FM in noise so as to eliminate potential benefits. Since each of these implants incorporate different speech processing strategies, it was necessary to compare performance with the implants as well as to investigate the general effects of the dynamic versus the fixed FM. As with the hearing aid study, the subjects were tested in a large classroom under conditions that replicated a typical difficult listening situation for a person with hearing loss (for example, being surrounded by noise while the FM microphone was located about six inches......

The Essay About the Movie Help

...“The Help” An emotionally stirring movie taking place in Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960s, “The Help” stars Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Octavia Spencer as three women who share a common motive. This racially tense setting creates the perfect foundation for a drama film such as this. The characters’ personalities in combination with the emotion of the plot develop a socially accurate depiction of the struggles faced by the people of the time. While the racial aspect of the movie is dominant, viewers may also find compassion and friendship within the conversations and encounters of its characters. It is commonplace for white families to have black maids serving them at this time. Aibileen (Davis) is a strong-willed maid who is recovering from the loss of her son. She does her job well, and despite falling victim to rude comments and grueling tasks from her boss Elizabeth and her perky friends, she has taken care of seventeen children over the course of her career. Fresh out of college, Skeeter Phelan (Stone), a good friend of Elizabeth’s, seeks Aibileen’s advice when she is stuck writing a cleaning column for the local newspaper. These conversations ignite a fire in Skeeter- she has the idea of writing a piece telling the story of an everyday life from the viewpoint of the maids of Jackson. It takes some convincing because of the obvious risks, but Aibileen agrees after Hilly, the leader of the housewives, starts a petition to require separate bathrooms in homes for the......

3 Stories About Coming of Age

...definition of coming of age is the attainment of maturity. In these three stories “To Every Thing There Is A Season” by Alistair MacLeod, “The Sunrise on the Veld,” by Doris Lessing, and “Stones,” by Sandre Birdsell, all of the same theme “Coming of Age.” They all go through hardship, pain, and loss. In each of these stories the protagonist realizes reality in three different ways: by facing death, by watching one closest to them get hurt or made a fool, and by realizing his or hers surroundings. Firstly in the story “Sunrise on the Veld,” by Doris Lessing the main character notices the real world by seeing death in a harsh way. In this story their was a boy who lived in South Africa who had just turned 15 years old. In the boys mind he had believed that he could be king of the Universe. Since he did not sleep he thought he could control over his own body. Early in the morning on his birthday he had decided to hunt for the first time, after watching several months of how the natives hunt animals. While running around the vlei full of joy he had came across the buck that had been hurt badly and was being attacked by a crowd of ants.“… as he drew in his breath and pity and terror seized him…” Doris Lessing (145) the narrator describes the boy. In this quote it clearly shows that it was one of the first time the boy had seen death and the fact that the boy was shocked at the sight of death. Before the boy was about to shoot the buck from its misery he said to himself “, I......

Much Ado About Nothing: a Love Story

...Shakespeare My first impression of Much Ado About Nothing is that it would be a love story. Although it is categorised as a Shakespearean comedy, I found the many "funny" parts of the play were foggy and required you to read the scene over a few times before you understood them. But then again, I had to read the whole scene over again a few times to understand anything. All of the characters in Much Ado About Nothing seemed to develop a personality of their own from the very first scene. It also helped that I saw the movie version of Much Ado About Nothing before we read the play so I could almost get a picture in my head as to what each character looked like. As the character's had their own personality, so did the two love relationships in the play. Benedick and Beatrice seemed to hate each other so much from the very start of the play that as the play carried on it almost seemed like the two went full circle in their relationship. But their relationship might not have changed for the better without help from Claudio, Don Pedro, Leonato, Ursula or Hero. In Claudio's and Hero's relationship seemed to be much more conventional in the way they came together. Claudio first saw Hero and instantly fell in love with her, while Hero stood by and took orders from her father, Leonato. Only when Don John devised his deception to break Claudio and Hero apart that I felt the relationship was in trouble, but even then I felt there was hope. In Act...

The Story About Stuff Project Reaction Paper

...The video entitled “The Story About Stuff Project, and Free Range Studies – The Story of Bottled Water”, was very informative and interesting. It begins by telling us that our world is a “system in crisis” and that we are “trashing the planet”. Annie Leonard begins to explain the dilemma or controversy between which is better, tap water or bottled water. Her example of Cleveland tap water versus Fiji bottled water showed that there has truly been a misconception with bottled water everywhere. It was mentioned in the video that, “In many ways, bottled water is less regulated than tap.” Although some people may think that bottled water is cleaner and tastier, the truth is that since it is less regulated, it has a higher chance of holding unwanted chemicals and bacteria. Bottled water is also 2,000 times more expensive than tape water, which is given to us free at our homes. With Americans across the country buying and consuming “more than half a billion bottles of water a week”, the U.S. is creating enough recycle waste to “circle the globe more than 5 times.” This overbuying of bottled water goes back to the concept of “manufacture demand” where companies us tactics of scaring us, seducing us, and misleading us. Going back to my point of the misconception of bottled water, companies create these images and beliefs that their water comes from natural, pure springs, but about “1/3 of bottled water comes from the tap”. Two known companies of this are Aquafina, and Dasani. The......

Enron Question About the Movie

...maintaining a high share price at any cost. How Wall Street and the bankers wanted to investigate if they are the first to get profit from all that. 6. In the Stanley Milgram experiment, why were 50% of the suspects willing to shock to the death? In what way does the Milgram's experiment help to explain the behavior of the Enron traders? The Milgram experiment was conducted to see how long an individual could take an order before they question that order. To see the evil people. With this idea the Enron traders pursuit their own profit to retire before to have 30 years old. Enron employees were constantly told to break laws or perform acts that could be considered immoral. 7. What is your opinion of the movie? Did you learn anything new about the Enron scandal? I liked the movie. I was not so aware what exactly happen to Enron. I always thoughts that was a big company that went to bankruptcy for bad management. But when I watched the documentary I understood also better what happen to California and how cynically and knowingly created the phony California energy crisis. There was never a shortage of power in California. And how some traders could joke on this dramatics situation like when California was under fire....

Short Story About Depression

...I woke up feeling uncomfortably hot. My lower back and cheeks felt flushed and my eyes opened with ease, like I hadn’t slept at all. My thick curtains blocked all sunlight and the dainty Christmas lights that lined my bed all year were twinkling, they created an atmosphere that was typical of my room, no matter what time of day it was. My parents gave me a hard time about sleeping with those lights on but I like having them on, they feel safe. I lay in my intertwined sheets and lush pillows staring at the photos that cover my wall. I had an entire wall filled with photos I took on my 1970 Konica 35mm camera, and I have a drawer filled with rolls of film yet to be developed. I stared at all the smiling faces and all the beautiful scenery. Hundreds of moments in my life that I felt I should capture. For me that’s what photography is about. It’s to remind myself that I am happy. When everything in the world seems awful and dark I have proof right in front of me that I can be ok. Each photo is like a note to my future self, that there are more beautiful memories to be made, and more pictures to be taken. The comforters tangled around my legs became suddenly unbearable and with a flare of irritation I began to make my bed perfectly before crawling back in and trying to fall back to sleep.Unsurprisingly it was to no use. After tossing and turning for what felt like hours I came to the conclusion that I had no idea what day it was or what time it might be. Its crazy how my......

Story About My Literacy

...was sitting in my room behind my computer and was looking and the blank screen on my laptop and was thinking to myself what story I should tell about my literacy? I’m not really sure if I can come up with anything! But then I start to think about the time when I was just a little kid, and I couldn’t read or write. I was very interested in reading since I was a child growing up in Iran. I remember that I was grabbing my mom or my dad magazine’s and look through all the pictures and wondering what is it saying? Then I would go to my dad and asking him to tell me what all these word surrounding these pictures means? So my dad was putting his glasses on while he was smiling at me and looked at the page that I was pointing at, then he start to read it to me loud and clear; at that point I was very jealous of my dad, that how can he read so well and I couldn’t ? and he would tell me that:”Don’t worry once you go to school they will teach you and you can read anything you want as good as me or even better”. My father explained to me that he felt books were very important and that I had been exposed to books from the beginning. I was read to by many family members such as aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents. He also stressed that I was a very verbal child at a young age and had been around mostly adults for the first few years. My vocabulary started at about five months and by two years had clear structured sentences. As I was learning how to speak, I was also introduced to......

Write About the Ways Browning Tells the Story in My Last Duchess

...The story focuses on the key events of the painting, the marriage between the Duke and the past Duchess, the possible murder of the Duchess and the yet to be new wife. The story being told is of the relationship between the Duke and former Duchess. Browning adopts numerous narrative techniques. Browning uses the form of a dramatic monologue to help the story progress. For instance 'That's my Last Duchess' shows that there is one speculator although there is an implied audience. The effect of this is that it shows that the poem tells a story that consists of much more than the words spoken by the one giving the monologue. To evaluate, the dramatic monologue makes it engaging with the reader. Additionally, Browning uses rhetorical questions as part of form to help tell the story. For example, 'Who'd stoop to blame..' is a clear example of the Duke trying to persuade his audience. The effect is that it reveals more about the Duke's character as the rhetorical question reinforces the impression that the Duke is haughty and self-important. To evaluate, Browning uses rhetorical questions effectively, revealing more about his character. Browning uses a lexical field of jealousy, ownership, artistry and love in order to aid the progression of the story. For instance, 'my Last Duchess painted on the wall' shows that the Duchess is objectified. The effect of this is that it allows the reader to sympathise with the Duchess and forces the reader to think of the Duke in a negative......

...“If you’ve ever owned a dog, don’t miss this film about loyalty, devotion and undying love “ - It’s about “Hachiko: A dog’s tale”, an American movie based on the true story about a dog in Japan, who had been waiting for his owner to return from work at the station every day until the owner passed away at the beginning of the 20th century.

Story About Refrigerators

...A brief story about Refrigerators One night you opened the door to the refrigerator extremely carefully, making sure it didn't squeak. You thought it probably wouldn't squeak, so you swung it open, making a loud high pitched noise escape from the hinges. You tensed up a bit, waiting for someone to kick in the doors and scold you. When nothing happened, you quickly started grabbing food. When your arms ran out of space, you start shoving some into your mouth. Then you wonder how easy it is to have all your favorite food in front you. The concept of refrigeration is not a new one. Refrigeration by means of natural ice has been employed for thousands of years. Ice cellars were used in China as early as 1000 b. c. (Grolier 331-334). In warm seasons the ice was shipped to markets in the south. Not only did people quarry the ice, but they also had to deliver it homes to put inside an ice box, thus resulting in the neighborhood iceman who brought the ice. A refrigerator is an essential item in almost every household today. As more are marketed, there is a demand for better quality, better efficiency, and more modern refrigeration. They are used not only to store leftovers, but also pre-cooked meals as well. Human culture has evolved greatly around refrigerators. Stress can develop in a house hold when there is a family to feed, however with refrigeration only a simple planning is needed. By purchasing ready to eat food a parent can simply heat or serve ready to eat meals. This...

Story About the Chalk

...that they have their own world with love, hatred, happiness, disappointment, injustice and many other human's feelings. When I was a little girl I believed that my toys were alive, and when I went to bed they started behave like people and did their own business. That is why I have never offended them and spoiled. I believe that they are alive and feel even a pain. I want to share with you with one very instructive story. I do not know is it a real story or not, maybe it is happening right now. Who knows... It was a bright sunny day, aroma of the blossomed flowers soared in air, birds chirped so loudly that it seemed you are in a thicket but not in the center of the noisy city. There were many elegant children with flowers in their hands on the streets. It was the 1st of September. - I'm so excited. It is my first work. I don't know how I should behave- the vase very quickly told. - Just stay without moving and stop talking! It irritates.- the blackboard muttered. Everything in the classroom were talking, they discussed an interesting theme for them. It was about new 3 pieces of chalk. Why they discussed them? Because chalk it was like an authority so was always. But always there was only one piece of chalk, and now them was 3. All were perplexed. How it is possible to have three rulers in the same time. - I guess there is nothing to discuss, I will be the only one and legitimate ruler.- said the most impudent one, whose name was Weed. - Why is that? We also have......

Essay About the Short Story: Pool by Corey Campbell

...Essay about the short story: Pool by Corey Campbell The short story “Pool” is about the couple Darla and Jon. The overarching theme in the story is: unhappiness in relationships, and failing marriages which both are very relevant to the society in which we live in. The author (Cory Campbell) is trying to shed some light on how it is being in an unhappy relationship. The main character Darla is a young woman, and even though we aren’t told her age, based on the quotes: “Darla herself, just older than the couple” and “now they were in year four”, I would conclude that the other couple are in their mid-twenties which I take to mean that she is in her late twenties. Darla doesn’t want kids, which is one of the minor themes in the short story. She isn’t very confident in her looks which we can conclude from this snippet of the text: “she hated others seeing her in her swimsuit”. Darla is in an unhappy relationship with Jon, which after their condom split is tenser than before. They have been a couple for just under a year, and Darla has recently realized that she isn’t happy in their relationship which we can see in this quote from the text: “what she liked best about him, Darla realized earlier in the car, was that it wasn’t going to last”. He is also pressuring her to do things she doesn’t want to do throughout the entire short story, for example when he is trying to get her to drink alcohol even though she isn’t allowed to drink, because of the morning-after pill that she...
