Can you imagine that everything around us is alive? Pen, book, toy, everything and even a chalk. Imagine 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 the same rights. I do not think you will consult.- said the second one, whose name was Justine.
- I think it is obviously. I'm the most beautiful, the most equal piece of chalk.- said Weed without thinking.
Everything started to whisper and look around. No one could say anything to him. At this time 20 children ran in a class, and our heroes plunged into silence.
And now always when someone wants to write on a board he jumped them in a hand and considered himself the most important and necessary.
It was a nice autumn day everybody was happy, but not our hero he at last understood that it was his last day. He was scattered on hands at the little girl, such beautiful and important any more.…...

Write About the Way Auden Tells the Story in Miss Gee

...Initially the story of Miss Gee comes across as old lady going through life. Though the opening sentence 'let me tell your little story' instantly belittles Miss Gee in the word little showing that it is just a story with little importance. It makes her appear insignificant despite her being the main and only character we see in full detail. This technique is effective as despite her lending her name to the title and being the content of the poem she is small and insignificant. This carries on to when Auden describes her lips 'thin and small' this highlights her insignificant further as it appears to he reader she is old and frail and unappealing. Furthermore it becomes clear that she as a lady is unwanted, even within her own religion for example when she is in the church and she sits in the 'side-aisle', she is on the perimeter in her own religion highlighting even within somewhere she feels she belongs she is still an outsider and she herself is in the side aisle of society. Auden continues this poor description even in the worse moment of her life in the poem for example even with the revaluation of her illness, the doctor highlights her insignificance in saying that cancer happens to 'childless women' and 'men when they retire', this shows that it is towards the end of a persons life when loneliness catches them, and shows that Miss Gee has had this all her life and in some respects it is her own fault she has cancer as she was never a attractive women to men, this seen......

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......

...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.

Movie and Stories About La

...of American Relations to Immigrants A story developed by Anna Deavere Smith, Twilight: Los Angeles, produced numerous perspectives of the way a society may be divided without clear advocacy of progressive policy articulations that protect the ones viewed as minor in the process of building a nation. Smith’s exploration involves the criteria of using disguising character whereby the she uses different setting, acting as different person in different contexts to portray their participation in building a nation without racial boundaries. As she states concerning the people, “all of whom would have gone to the highest mountain to tell their stories to anyone in the world who would listen” (Smith, p. 8). In the recreation of these people in verbatim style, she presents Twilight: Los Angeles to align the issues accounted of a community in crisis whereby the detrimental perspectives as proved to the divisional areas of the city and the nation as a whole. Issues that are majorly brought forward by this author are correlative to history and identity, race and racism, community and membership, together with justice and peace. Occasions of racial activities aroused by the video released by numerous television channels regarding the brutal beating of an African American, Rodney King, in the year 1991 resulted to massive destruction when African Americans initiated rioting demonstration in the year 1992 to express the verdict.

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......

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......

Piece of Chalk

...A PIECE OF CHALK Q-What was the controversy between the old woman and writer on the brown paper? In the summer holidays he went into the kitchen (which along with the rest of the house) by putting six very bright colored chalks in his pocket. He asked the owner of the kitchen if she had any brown paper. She mistook the purpose and the rationale of the existence of brown paper. She seemed to have an idea that if a person wanted brown paper he must be waiting to tie up parcels, which was the last thing he wanted to do indeed. Hence she dwelt very much on the varying qualities of toughness and endurance in the material. He explained to her that he only wanted to draw pictures on it, and he did not want them to endure in the least; and that from his point of view, therefore, it was a question not of tough consistency but of responsive surface, a thing comparatively irrelevant in a parcel. When she understood that he wanted to draw she offered to overwhelm him with notepaper, apparently supposing that he did his notes and correspondence on old brown paper wrappers from motives of economy. He then tried to explain the rather delicate logical shade, that he not only liked brown paper, but quality of brownness in paper. After that he put that brown paper in his pocket and other things and went out on to the great downs. Q- What type of drawing did the writer do in the story? Discuss his thoughts about nature. When he went on to the great downs, he crawled across those colossal......

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...

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...
