The combination of Rahim Khan’s advice and Amir’s growing maturity results in Amir finally facing his past. After Rahim Khan’s call Amir Ventures back to Afghanistan to visit Rahim to finally reconcile with his past, Amir explains to Rahim about the past of the “winter of 1975” and the events that made him the man he is today. Rahim Khan reveals something to Amir that he never knew himself and that was that Baba had slept with Hassan’s mother which ultimately means that Amir and Hassan were half-brothers, and that Baba had been keeping a dark secret all along. Rahim also explains that Hassan had died and that he had a son Sohrab who is an orphan and that Amir has a chance to redeem himself though Sohrab, but it is not though saving Sohrab that will entirely redeem himself. Amir takes the final leap towards his reconciliation with the facing of Assef in Kabul, from whom Hassan had always shielded him from. As Assef is beating him, Amir is laughing as it gave him a sense of relief and freedom. Amir finally relieves his past cowardice and feels healed as he saves a life, in doing this he finally repays Hassan for his life of sacrifice. Through these events Hosseini reveals his views and values of irony as Sohrab pulls out a slingshot and shoots Assef in the eye portraying Hassan as a little boy, and the adoption of Sohrab by Amir and Soraya as they are unable to have a baby themselves.
In conclusion Khaled Hosseini’s novel ‘The kite Runner’ is a complete story of redemption as Amir completes his journey by saving Sohrab, standing up to Assef and admitting everything including the truth about Sohrab. Amir preforms a good deed and an admission of guilt as he makes up for Hassan’s sacrifice through sacrifices of his own and for the “first time since the winter of 1975, I felt at…...

A Look at a Career as Controller in the Corporate Finance Industry

...line executive whom you support. (www.about.com) I believe this is an attainable career goal for me and would definitely like to aspire to a position of this magnitude. However, it is not a career to be taken lightly. The Controller has a lot of responsibility and therefore a lot of pressure to perform well. Someone who wants to be or is already a Controller would need to be very dedicated to their job, have great attention to detail, and enjoy working with numbers. You would also need to be able to balance work and home life well. This kind of career can take up a lot of your time and energy. If one chooses to have a family outside of work they would need to be able to balance the two well.

He could now advertise his horse (actually worth $20), as a horse he that he had paid over a quarter of a million dollars for. We can laugh over such schemes. And perhaps we should laugh at ourselves for having been fooled, for if there is one area in life that exceeds the religious in deception, and touches all of us it is the financial. What else can we do about it except laugh? The famous poet Lord Byron describes the archtype of our two farmers in 1823, Who keeps the world, both old and new, in pain......

Based on the longevity pattern of your family, you assume you will live 20 years past your retirement age; during each of those years you desire to withdraw $100,000 from your pension fund. If the interest rate is 5% annually, how much will you have to save annually for the next 10 years to meet your retirement goal. Assume that the first deposit to your pension fund will be today (annuity due), followed by nine more annual deposits; the annual withdrawals from age 65 will occur at the beginning of each year and after your 20th withdrawal your pension fund will have a zero balance. (1) solve the problem using the PV and Pmt wizzard using the template below.

Eye Contact

...high, the mouth is opened and it has an oval shape. For example: (2) “The horse things pulling the carriages!” said Harry impatiently. Ron, however, gave Harry a perplexed look. “What are you talking about?” (4), where Harry tells his friend Ron about the creatures, which Ron is unable to see; Ron is unpleasantly surprised by this. 134 fragments of text (17.3%), the eye contact shows the interest-excitement of the speaker. The communicat has a direct opened look, which is directed into the object of interest. This type of the eye contact lifts eyebrows and slightly knits them. For example: (3) ‘Very clean, aren’t they, these Muggles?’ said the witch called Tonks, who was looking around the kitchen with great interest (4), where the wizzards curiously examine the kitchen of the ordinary people. The eyes of communicant are full of joy in the 98 text fragments (12.6%) of the actual material. In this case, the eyes are wide open, pupils become wider as well, which is a sign of a positive emotional response. This direct look is typical for the open energetic person who is in a good mood. For example: (4)‘Wood looked happily at Harry as they trudged back up to the castle. ‘That Quidditch Cup’ll have our name on it this year,’ said Oliver (3), where the captain of the team look at Harry with joy and informs about their win. Anger, which was expressed by thecommunicants can be meet in the text 54 times (11,6%). Usually it is a look from the down (when the head is lowered)......
