Road Warrior Question #2
If you have been browsing through many websites on the Internet you have probably encountered a random window that opens up with some sort of advertisement that most of the time have nothing related to your search. Those windows are called pop ups and can be very irritating.
I am usually a very common target for pop-ups or any kind of online advertisement because I usually do a lot of my shopping online. There I was, sitting in front of my computer trying to finalize a booking for my flight when the online advertisements started popping up on my screen. “Do you want to fly to Hawaii?” was one of them. Too bad I was booking a flight to visit my family in Russia. I am sure the advertising company was thinking if I got cold in Russia, maybe I would like to spend some time on the beach after my trip.
These internet advertisements are forced down our throats like an appetizer in a restaurant. However this appetizer is something we didn’t order or want, and it probably tastes horrible. But we have to consume it in order to get to our desired entrée meal.
In the end I feel that that online advertisement companies need to realize that annoying pop ups can make the customers avoid their website and not attract them. Browsing the internet shouldn’t mean spending eternity clicking your mouse to get rid of ads.

Salvation Question #2
In the passage salvation Hughes brilliantly describes his experience sitting in the church to give a reader a vivid view of his feelings and surroundings. The author’s dialogue was based on his emotions that how he felt that morning as little boy.
“Saved”, is the specific verb that Hughes repeatedly used throughout the passage. Hughes talks specifically about the feelings that he wanted to experience that his Aunt Reed promised him when Jesus “saved” him. But at that time when he was just…...

...Warrior The tears of my youth have stopped flowing from absorbing the injustice, inflicted by Godly persons of cruel and wicked devils, who have extracted me from the womb of my community, cutting off my mother tongue, forcible compliance to their way of life and killing my spirit, my people, my community and my nation. Severely depressed, I painfully walk with permanent scars that are deeply saturated within my soul and I can no longer speak from my heart as I continue my life’s journey looking, hoping and searching for the end of the trail, beaten, broken, burdened and buried in despair. Helpless and unable to cope with the weight of atrocities gushing from the subtle but deadly waves of genocide that will not subside from all levels of governments along with the courts of the dominion that are manipulating, diminishing and imposing changes that disrupts the well being of our communities. My physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being is extremely out of balance where healing can only come from within and I must rise above the injuries of yesterday otherwise I will be the vessel of tomorrow’s generations that may lead to the fatality of a people.

Salvation

...young boy who wanted to see Jesus, who wanted to earn salvation, but when he couldn't see Jesus, when everyone else saw, he found himself in the terrible position of disappointing not only himself but everyone in his community. He finally "saved" himself by pretending to see Jesus. He was saved not by love of Jesus as a congregation or preacher intended but by pretending to be other that that he was. One wanders what would have happened if he didn't stepped forward? Would they have seen a frightened boy? It is hard to say. However, it is kind of evident that he was afraid to be rejected; therefore, he falls into the trap of trying to please everyone. In addition, he met the needs of no one since he deceived everybody in church and himself as well. Faith cannot be based upon whether or not we receive what we want. Hughes waited long and hard for Jesus to come, and he believed that He would and should come since he asked him. Hughes wasn't ready to put trust in God since He didn't succumb to his will. Even though his little body was knelling, he didn't humbled himself. The position of earnest subservience does not replace a prideful spirit. The bowling of the head and clenching of the hands are to be an outpouring of the spirit's state. Kneeling results from a humble prayer: humility doesn't come from kneeling. The question of the relationship between what we pray for and what actually happens is incorporated into "Salvation". Does God have to grant every request?...

Road Warrior Soapstone

...AP English 11 August 1, 2011 Road Warrior SOAPSTone Road Warrior is an essay describing the typical obstacles an average person encounters. Dave illustrates the many scenarios that cause him to rage. He presents these observations in a considerably exaggerated and sarcastic manner. In this way it keeps the readers interests and gives an example to what a typical person would recount these situations as. But towards the end, the subject isn’t just an essay expressing the many things that aggravates him but also pointing out that the general public gets agitated over everything, which in some cases result to unnecessary violence that can be easily avoided if people were more calm and collective. Throughout the entire essay he was expressing his opinion in a captious but realistic approach, which would identify it as a critique. By presenting his paper in this aspect he can expose all the faults he sees so similar minded individuals can also relate to him. Road Warriors does specify the time or location but one can infer the essay’s time of creations is likely written after an encounter with “road rage”. Dave capitalizes certain phrases in his essay to emphasize his frustration, as if he was venting to someone about it. There aren’t any details as to where it was written. He doesn’t state anything about the occasion in general at all. Dave’s audience really ranges from adolescent to the elderly. He mocks minors by referring them as “testosterone- deranged youth “ giving......

Salvation

...Salvation is a story from The Big Sea, which was written by Langston Hughes, an African American poet, playwright and fiction writer. He was one was the earliest innovators of the then new literary art form, jazz poetry. This is a story that took place during the author’s childhood, when he was going on thirteen. This story is about how he lost his faith as a child when during a revival meeting he remained the lone “young lamb” that did not see Jesus. In the end, the young Langston decided to deceive the whole congregation by pretending that Jesus had come to him. Hughes shows us how the thoughts and actions of the people around us can affect our actions, and how complete trust and innocence can result in a complete lost of faith. Hughes uses vivid imagery and simple language to convey a believable child’s point of view. Hughes starts his essay with two contradicting statements: that he “was saved from sin…but not really saved” (). This is a signal to the reader that the title Salvation does not mean what one would think it means. Initially the author went to a revival meeting at his aunt’s church with the full intention of being saved. She told him “when you were saved you saw a light, and something happened to you inside! And Jesus came into your life! And God was with you from then on!” (). His use of exclamation marks punctuating these sentences portrays a picture of a child who was excited and enthused about this upcoming event. He completely believed his aunt and his...

Salvation

...There are several questions that will be addressed from the reading of John 15:1-8. The first question is what does this passage teach about salvation? Jesus is the true vine and the only source of eternal salvation. In one of our texts Mr. Morris states “When the Father purges the vine of the “unclean” Canes; He is ridding it of people whom God will prune”. (Morris, 2012, p. 137) Man is by his own nature dry and barren, but we draw power from God which is new, which does not proceed from ourselves. We are crafted in His image alone. (Christnotes.org, 2013) The second question is what this passage of John teaches about discipleship? These passages teach us that Jesus is the vine and His disciples are the branches. “The branches derive their life from the vine; the vine produces its fruit through the branches” (Carson, 2012, p. 514). In John 15:1, he states “I am the vine, and my Father is the vine grower” John 15:1 (The Wesley Study Bible). This parable elaborates that Jesus as God’s true vine depicts Him and these attached to Him as branches, which are God’s genuine people. The last question is what does the passage within John 15:1-8 teach us about eternal security? John 15:2 states, “He removes every branch in me that bears no fruit. Every branch that bears fruit He prunes to make it bear more fruit” (John 15:2). Fruitfulness is the mark of the true Christian. In John it also states eternal security is given by abiding in Jesus Christ and His word abides......

Salvation Army

...Abstract Introduction The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible and its ministry is motivated by the love of God. The mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. (The Salvation Army 2003) The Salvation Army is funded by donations and voluntary support. The national headquarters is located in Alexandria, Virginia, while London serves as the site of its international headquarters. It is organized using a military model, following a similar chain of command, including military titles for personnel, local bands, and banners. While these officers are necessary, committed volunteers are also essential to the success of this extensive ministry and its programs. Historical Roots In 1865, the Salvation Army was founded in London by William Booth, an English Methodist minister. First known as the "Christian Mission" to provide social welfare assistance to the residents of urban slums and save them from their sinful lifestyles of prostitution, gambling, and drunkenness, it was renamed in 1878. Military ranks and titles were assigned according to their responsibilities. His wife, Catherine, was co-founder. The "soldiers" preached openly in the streets. They promoted high ideals of service and commitment. Importance of the Salvation Army The Salvation Army is currently active in ninety-eight countries,......

Salvation

...Salvation Living in a country where we are entitled to freedom of religion, many of us have grown to have our own beliefs and ways of viewing religion on a whole. There are others who have been pressured by family or friends to believe in God and him alone. Sometimes with the pressure of others, we can begin to believe in something that we truly do not feel is right. In the essay “Salvation” by Langston Hughes, the main character faces a struggle of wanting to be saved by God. Does he want to be saved for his sake? Or has his salvation been influenced and forced upon by family members? Our main character and narrator in “Salvation” goes by the name of Langston. Langston attends church with his aunt and desires salvation from Jesus Christ. His aunt has told him that “when you were saved you saw a light, and something happened to you inside! And Jesus came into your life.” When it was time for Langston’s salvation he saw nothing and felt nothing, to him it seemed as if God wasn’t real. He proceeded to head to the altar even though he did not see that light or feel the spirit. He later feels regret for “lying” about seeing the light and being saved. This creates a question of, what is the true meaning of Salvation? Salvation is being saved or protected from harm or being saved or delivered from some dire situation. To me, salvation is when you feel safe and free from all things you feel hold you back, this may not have to be a spiritual or religious act, just the thought......

Salvation

...Biblical Perspective, What Is Salvation Salvation simply stated “Is the deliverance from our sinful nature and eternal punishment through Gods gifted grace.” With-in several scriptures and books of the Bible, you can find diverse illustration’s explaining the provisions for salvation. Christ crucifixion on the cross paid the price for our salvation; God’s grace extended to us through the sacrifice of Christ his [Son]. In Mark 10:24-27, the idea of salvation being a gift from God, not anything that we can procure through self-enterprise was introduced. Isaiah speaks of how [He] took upon Himself our transgressions and iniquities; peace was given to us through the penance that was placed on him, and healing came through [His] wounds (Isaiah 53:5). In (John 1:23) he makes reference to Christ being the “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” I find it fascinated how prior to Christ, it was in the Law of Moses to offer a sacrifice to God for atonement of sin. Typically this was a [lamb] having no unclean markings and John the Baptist indicated Christ as the [Lamb]. The very definition of “Jesus” derived from the Hebrew name “Yeshua” means salvation. Instructed by an Angel, Joseph and Mary named Christ, Jesus, “for he will save his people from their sins” (Mat 1:21-23). Christ purpose for coming was to seek out, teach and save us from our sins. Perhaps the most critical component to salvation is the resurrection. “We would all still be in sin if Christ......

Warriors

...The Warriors' Saturday against the did more than end a record-setting start to the season — it also carried the potential to normalize what had previously seemed like an unstoppable force. Would the Warriors' record fall to a more standard level of excellence after proving themselves vulnerable? Would opponents approach them with more confidence? Wednesday's matchup with the answered those questions as clearly as possible. It turns out that the one-loss Warriors look a lot like the team that opened at 24-0. After playing poorly enough for the Suns to build a 42-38 lead through 19 minutes, the Warriors closed the second quarter on a 21-4 run (with no scoring at all in the final 1:40) and won the third quarter 46-19 on their way to a dominant that wasn't even that close. The NBA season-high 46-point period allowed Golden State to rest its starters for the full fourth quarter after they had built a 40-point advantage.

Australian Cinema and Mad Max Ii: the Road Warrior

...Australian cinema to the top of the box office without the help of government funding. Their breakthrough film, Mad Max (1978), directed by Miller, would forever change the science-fiction genre. However, it would be only the first of a trilogy of Mad Max films. It was followed by both Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) both directed by Miller. The trilogy follows a character, Max Rockatansky, AKA “Mad Max”, (played by Mel Gibson in his breakthrough role), through his escapades in a post-apocalyptic Australian Outback. As a former police officer whose family was murdered in the first film, Max has become referred to as a “shell of a man.” He drives through the outback alone in his V-8 interceptor in search of what has become the most precious commodity on the planet: Gasoline. George Miller’s 1981 film, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, provided the world with a rather grim prediction of what the world may become if it continues to consume oil in the way it does. In comparison to the other Mad Max films, The Road Warrior is viewed as being far superior to the original Mad Max, dispelling the myth that most sequels are inferior to their originals. The Road Warrior is superior for numerous reasons. The film used over the top stunts to create an action packed plot, only further highlighted by its uniquely designed costumes and props. It made very notable achievements in these fields as well as filming and editing through using fender mounted......

Salvation

...Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Salvation Salvation has been the most common term used in our churches today. But, what is salvation? Since I was a child, my parents always taught me that without salvation I was going to hell. Being so young and innocent, I would look at my parents and ask them, what I need to do to be saved. Their answer was simple. Fear God and stay away from sin; I guess that was my parent’s definition of salvation. Just like my parents, everyone has their own definition of salvation, depending on the religion you were brought up with and your faith. As I grew older, I came to realize that salvation not only involved fearing the maker but also salvation refers to being granted eternal life when the Day of Judgment comes. We all know temptation is real and the devil is not sleeping. I came to understand that salvation was everything to do with being spared from eternal penalty of sin. But that begs a different question; do all human beings deserve being spared the eternal fire? From the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament, we learn that only the righteous shall be saved and inherit the kingdom of God. During judgment day, while others will be rejoicing together with Christ in paradise others will be burning in eternal fire. Even the Bible states that salvation is only for those who will repent and turn to God. The prophet Ezekiel said “the soul who sins shall dies” (Ezekiel 18.4 NKJ). We can also see the same in the writing of the apostle Paul......

Salvation

...Salvation", Langston Hughes Langston Hughes paints a picture of himself as a little boy whose decisions at a church revival directly reflect mans own instinctive behavioral tendencies for obedience. A young Langston whose congregation wants him to go up and get saved, gives into obedience and ventures to the altar as if he has seen the light of the Holy Spirit. Hughes goes on to say: " So I decided that maybe to save further trouble, I'd rather lie, too, and say that Jesus had come ,and get up and be saved ." In saying this, Langston has obviously overlooked his personal belief to meet the level of obedience laid out by the congregation. It leads us to fact that people may believe strongly in an idea or thought but will overlook that belief to be obedient. One can make a justified assumption that everyone in society has at one time or another overlooked his or her personal feelings to conform this occurrence whether it is instinctive or judgmental is one that each individual deals with a personal level.
