The movie Black Girl is set in France and Africa during the 1960’s. Diouana, a Senegalese woman, moves from Dakar to France to care for a rich couple’s children. She soon realizes that her work is not to care for the kids but to clean the house and serve food. She has basically become their servant, but had been hoping for a much more “glamorous” lifestyle. Throughout the movie we see Diouana discriminated against because of the color of her skin. As she realizes the life she is living is not what she expected she begins to feel alienated and wants to return to Africa. Black Girl shows the effects of colonialism, racism, and post-colonial life in Africa and France. The movie exemplifies unequal colonial relations as it depicts the changing treatment that Diouana experiences once she moves with the French family from Dakar to France. Black Girl illustrates postcolonial life for a young African girl, who though she pursues ideals of freedom in France, ultimately finds that Africa still has economic dependency on France, there is racism, and do not have independence from France after post-colonialism.
In the movie Black Girl, we see a time when African’s had little rights in France. In Senegal, African’s were fighting for their independence from France. Senegal was named after the Senegal River and covers around 76,000 square miles. In the 1850’s, the French expanded into Senegal, which was free from slavery. It wasn’t until after WWII that Africans began to have political authority. In 1945 French West Africa was allowed to participate in writing a New French Constitution. In 1958 another Constitution was written which changed the structure of the colonies from the French Union to the French Community. This basically made it so that African’s had more of a voice and they were able to slowly decolonize from France. (Bajorek). On June 20, 1960 they become fully…...

...children raised in grand-families. My role as a grand-mother, to Piper Reanne, was drastically changed from spoiler and nurturer to that of the parent in the fall of 2005. After financial hardships, incidents of neglect and other safety concerns, my daughter and I sat down to discuss me becoming Piper’s “primary” caregiver. After contacting the Clerk of the Court, we wrote the Caregiver Authorization, which is nothing more than a notarized letter, filed a copy with the court and Piper moved into my home. The long forgotten sound of a child laughing, a full on belly laugh, once again filled my home. My days of sleeping in late, getting up and going wherever and whenever I wanted were a thing of the past. I had to adjust back to packing a bag before going anywhere and doing everything for two. Our lives moved forward. In the fall of 2007, Piper was taken, by her mother without permission from her paternal grand-parents while they were on a shopping trip to Wal-Mart. While they were checking out, my daughter arrived; taking Piper by the hand and started off in the direction of McDonald’s to get ice cream. Once her paternal grand-parents realized that Piper and my daughter were not getting ice cream they phoned to ask if Piper was at home. Knowing that Piper was supposed to be with them, I panicked, trying to get all of the information I could. They knew nothing, except her mother took Piper. I hung up and dialed the police; they......

Dehra, Dist. Kangra, HP, India Abstract: Piper betle leaves (Family: Piperaceae) have been used in Chinese and Indian folk medicine for centuries and recently been proposed to be used as a chemopreventive agent because of its anti-oxidant activity. In the present paper, Piper betle leaves were standardized for stomatal index, vein islet and vein termination numbers, palisade ratio, UV fluorescence and different ash values. The Piper betle leaves are earlier reported to possess anticancer potential. Hence, the aqueous extract of the leaves was subjected to cytotoxicity studies on Hep-2 cell line using MTT and SRB assays. The mean CTC50 was found to be 96.25 µg/mL, which proved the potent cytotoxicity and hence, the probable anticancer property of the selected extract. Key words: Betel Leaf Anticancer Phytochemical characterization and its leaves, with a strong pungent and aromatic flavour, are widely consumed as a mouth freshener [4].

Google: Employee Satisfaction

...Google: Employee Satisfaction MGMT311 Google In 1998 two gentlemen by the names of Sergey Brin and Larry Page founded a company called Google Inc. Eric Schmidt, who is the former CEO at Novell Inc., went to Google in 2001 and is now the CEO there (Piper, 2004, p. 26). The three men still run the daily operations at Google and they have been able to attract and motivate some of the most talented employees in the world because of their ability to leverage the power of organizational behavior (Piper, 2004, p. 26). Even though Google is an Internet powerhouse, I think their real power is from being able to apply theories and practices of organizational behavior. Some of the ways in which Google has become a motivating workplace is through their employee incentive programs and benefits. Some of the programs/benefits they have are things such as five free days of childcare per year, access to a sauna, dry cleaner, and gyms. They also pay out $8,000 in tuition payments and offer a gourmet cafeteria where their employees eat for free. Not to mention the nap room, video game area, and an on-campus oil change service center (Cohn, 2005, p. 66). One of the best things I think Google does is has their employees work in open-floor designs so as not to separate employees from coworkers. This allows for better communication and interaction. Google also places new employees with more seasoned, experienced developers to ensure each employee understand the inner workings of the......

As Time Draws Near

...“As the Time Draws Near” (2012). The readers are introduced to the main character, Piper, who grew up in Alaska but later moved away. The short story follows her at a time when she has returned to Alaska in order to spread her dead father’s ashes under a particular spruce tree. She has a lot of thoughts about death and she is almost obsessed with it. Death is the focal point and theme in this short story. It raises questions such as what happens when we die? And what is death really? The story tells about our short time on earth and how fear of death can stand in the way of living life fully with all the experiences the current moment offers. 
This essay will focus mainly on setting and the father’s outlook on life. Furthermore this essay will also include an analysis of the symbolism in the short story.
 At the beginning the description of the nature in Alaska is a vivid portrayal followed by a number of incidents where people have been killed in or by this nature. Piper’s father is one of these people, he “falls out of the sky.” (p. 1, l. 10)
Her father with the name Red lived his life like it was an adventure. The description of the landscape appears in the same way - like a never-ending adventure. The tundra is a big and open landscape. The mountains, the glaciers and the snow continues into infinity. The same infinity that Piper’s father wanted to experience. The tundra is described when Piper sees it from the airplane:
“as far as she can see in any direction the earth......

Project Management Email-Piper Industries

...Project Management Email-Piper Industries OPS 571 Dear Mr. Gritsch, I would like to thank Piper Industries for allowing our team to analyze your projects. Our team has carefully reviewed all three projects for a best fit to your business needs. Included you will find our analysis and recommendations of the Project Proposal that most benefits your company. Based on the review of the three projects, it appears that the Juniper project which is an enhancement of a current widget being offered will not be profitable option. It requires a cost of $350,000 to bring the product to market with a ROI of 76.9% of the initial cost at its 3 year life span. With advancements in technology ending the life of this product, it is recommended not to pursue this project. The Palomino project may appear to be more attractive with enhancements using existing technology. Upon reviewing the figures, $655,000 start-up costs to bring to market and a predicted $90,000 return each year for 7 years and factoring a ±5% margin, this project takes a different spin that presents a risk of loss to the organization. With a potential -5% (-$31,500) ROI, it becomes obvious that this project is not worth the risk. The ideal project that our team recommends is the Stargazer project. With an initial research and development cost of $450,000, it will only require an additional $125,000 to bring this product to market. Factoring a product life forecast of 7 years, your......

...expecting you out there?” the pilot asked when she called to book the flight. “No. I’m sure he isn’t,” she said. “Because he’s not your warm, fuzzy type. If you show up there unexpected, the old man is likely to run you off.” But she has no choice. Tucked in with the maps and pilot directory in the pocket behind the seat of her father’s destroyed Super Cub airplane had been a will, signed and dated June 21, 1991 – the year Piper 1 in Alaska 1 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 graduated from high school and left Alaska. Twenty years, he had carried it with him. He had even gone as far as to have it laminated in plastic so that it might survive a water crash. It was simple and to the point: I, Red Robertson, leave everything I have to my daughter, Piper Robertson. I want her to cremate me and take my ashes out to Ernest Tuttle’s place and spread them beneath the spruce tree. He’ll know which one. Unless he’s dead, too. Then just dump me at his doorstep and say a prayer for both of us. Though he didn’t include it in the will, Piper suspected her father would have wanted a drunken wake on his behalf, too. She remembered when she was a little girl and Red’s best friend Braden died in an avalanche. It was December. Dark and cold. The grown-ups gathered in a circle on frozen Wolverine Lake and recited poetry – Robert Service and Walt Whitman. Perhaps soon, some day or night while I am singing, my voice will suddenly cease. Then they built......

...white. Like Piper, many are looking to identify themselves but are disheartened by lurking stereotypes. All in all, it’s a problem society hasn’t overcome, but efforts such as Adrian Piper’s are educating and altering notions of the past. Piper’s racial identity issues, worsened by discrimination, began before her time when her father, a light skinned black man was placed in the segregated black army brigade only to be shunned by fellow troops men because they thought he wasn’t dark enough. As a result, Piper grew up to question her identity, not knowing where she belonged. However she later learned to defend her stance as a black woman, but along the way her enthusiasm was stifled by the constant “derogatory, insensitive behavior” she witnessed towards blacks whether they were around or not. In an effort to combat the racial discrimination, Piper turned to art as an outlet, and her photography not only helped her overcome her issues but also brought light to an overlooked societal issue. In 1972, Piper, in a series of images know as the Mythic Being progressively portrayed herself as a black man with a mustache, Afro wig, mirrored sunglass and cigar. In doing so she allowed herself to depict her own thoughts about how blacks are viewed, meanwhile getting whites and differently pigmented blacks to face the everyday stereotypes and racial injustice brought on by skin color. In a speech that coincides with her Mythic Being photography, addressed to her friends, Piper......

Public-Key Encryption

...Burianek Saint Leo University Network Theory & Design COM-309 Dr. Eduardo Bautista August 01, 2014 Public-key Encryption Intent The intent of this paper is to present the reader with an explanation of Public-key encryption without delving too deeply into the math behind encryption schemes to better facilitate understanding for the layperson. Introduction Cryptography is a fascinating world that predates computers. Beginning in ancient times through the revolutionary period and into modern times, there have been many schemes to protect sensitive data. Notable technics are George Washington's book-key ciphers, Thomas Jefferson’s ‘cylinder,’ (Menezes, Van Oorschot, & Vanstone, 1997, p. 243) and the Nazi Enigma Machine of World War II. (Piper & Murphy, 2002) There has always been a need to have secure communications and the ability to safeguard data that has been intercepted. Modern Cryptology is an art form that uses the science of mathematics in order to provide secrecy, authenticity, and security in the transport of data. “Cryptology also enables us to create trust relationships over open networks; more in general, cryptographic protocols allow mutually distrusting parties to achieving a common goal while protecting their own interests.” (Furnell, Katsikas, Lopez, & Patel, 2008, p. 105) The methods by which these transactions can occur are many; however, they can be broken down into two categories; symmetric key encryption and asymmetric key......

Beyond the Orange Jumpsuits

...as OITNB, is a TV show that revolves around Piper Chapman. Piper is sentenced to fifteen months at a women’s federal prison for transporting drug money from an international drug cartel that was organized by her former girlfriend, Alex Vause (“Orange Is the New Black”). The incident, which Piper is sentenced for, happened ten years prior to the start of the TV show. By the time Piper’s past has caught up with her, she had already moved on; she got engaged and had an upper middle class lifestyle in New York City and ready to start her brand new life. Unfortunately, before all that can happen, Piper has to go to Litchfield, the female prison, which is now her new home. OITNB portrays the lives of many inmates, including Piper, before and during prison, showing their transformations through time. The first episode of season one, Piper gets ready to surrender at Litchfield. She faces the difficulties on being the new inmate - having no money, no privileges, and no respect from the other convicts. Watching this TV show makes viewers wonder if life in female institutions is as severe as Litchfield. Orange Is The New Black is based off the memoir of Piper Kerman and her experience in prison, which makes the show as realistic as possible. The first episode of season one, Piper Chapman begins to narrate a childhood flashback: “I've always loved getting clean. I love baths. I love showers. It's my happy place”; the scene is interrupted, Piper is in the prison shower, wearing......

Bus Law

...Business Law II Case Brief Citation In re Estate of Piper Missouri Court of Appeals (1984) 676 S.W.2d 897 FACTS: Gladys Piper died without a will. For several years before Piper’s death, Clara Kauffman had taken Piper to the doctor, beauty salon, and the grocery store; written her checks to pay her bills; and helped her care for her home. At the time Piper had passed, she had $206.75 in cash, and the “Andy Piper” diamond rings in her purse. She also owned personal property amounting to $5,150, consisting of household goods, two old automobiles, farm machinery, and other “miscellaneous” items. According to Kauffman, Piper had promised to pay her for these services and that Piper had intended the “Andy Piper” diamond rings to be a gift to her. Kauffman filed a claim against Piper’s estate for $4,800, but the trial court denied her request as they believed the services that Kauffman provided to Piper were voluntary. Wanda Brown, Piper’s niece, claimed the rings in the purse to preserve them for the estate. Kauffman then filed a petition for delivery of the rings, in which the court granted approval. Piper’s heirs appealed. ISSUE: Whether the donor relinquished complete control and dominion over property before the gift can be effectively delivered? Should Clara Kauffman be given Gladys Piper’s diamond rings? DECISION: The judgment of the trial court was reversed. There was no effective gift of the rings made. Piper had never delivered the rings to......
