Being born in the United States I am fortunate to have all the rights that I have, especially since I am female. I cannot imagine what life would be like without all of the changes that have come about because of our nations early feminists.
Autumn Gem is a documentary about the life of China’s first feminist and how it sparked the women’s movement in China. Qiu Jin challenged the traditional gender roles and demanded equal rights and opportunities for women in China. She became interested in defining women’s rights at an early age. As a child she looked up to other influential women in China’s history. Qiu Jin studied martial arts as a young child and began schooling after watching her brother and his tutor. Qiu Jin became an accomplished writer, talented martial artist, and a leader of a revolutionary army.

Remember in Autumn

...REMEMBER IN AUTUMN Once upon a time I was watching leaves fall off trees looking to fly away. A cold wind blew by making the leaves dance. It was cold so I went inside were I made some hot chocolate. I heard a screech of tires outside I went outside to see whats there. A girl and her son were sitting on the curb looking lost. I asked why they were here the girl said “we needed to go to the hospital to get my son here checked out.” I felt bad for her so I let them inside for a little while. She told me her name was Amanda and her son’s name is Will. Will had leukemia. He had dark brown hair that was half way gone and giant sparkly blue eyes. I told Amanda that my mom was coming home soon so they could get a ride with them. Amanda called a tow truck while i played with Will. Will was strong. Stronger than anyone i ever knew. My mom finally got home and drove them to the hospital. About 4 months later i found out that Will got surgery and is at the hospital. Amanda called saying i could see Will. I left at about 3 in the morning to see him. When i got there i saw those sparkly blue eyes watching me. He told me about the kids who played with him and how all the nurses would compliment him on his hair. I was surprised at how happy he was. About a hour later he was discharged from the hospital so i asked if he could go to the park with me. We headed for the park and we played for what seemed like forever when we had to leave. He slept over that night and we jammed out......

Autumn Leaves

...Autumn Leaves Turn Red BACKGROUND INFORMATION Daylight time and temperature decrease during autumn as a warning for trees –and many other organisms- that winter is coming. Many trees lose their leaves; but before that is done the green color of the leaves turns into yellow, red, and orange. These changes do not happen randomly; behind it there is a transformation of the pigments in leaves. One of the main pigments in leaves is chlorophyll and it absorbs the red and blue light from sunlight that falls on leaves; hence, the leaves reflect the "green light" and that is why leaves appear to be green. The chlorophyll is part of a bigger structure called chloroplasts. Photosynthesis, a process in which plants transform solar energy into chemical energy, takes place in the chloroplast; furthermore, it is thanks to this chemical energy that plats produce seeds, grow and flower. However, chlorophyll is not a stable compound because sunlight causes it to decompose; hence, plants have to synthesize it continuously. Nevertheless, this "synthesis" requires sunlight and warm temperatures and that is the reason why it is scarce during autumn. Carotene is another pigment found in plants; it absorbs blue and blue-green light and hence the light reflected from it appears to be yellow. Carotene is found in the chloroplasts of many plants and when it is paired with chlorophyll both absorb many "lights" and therefore the plant looks green. The light carotene absorbs is transferred to...

Amazing Autumn

...Amazing Autumn The most amazing season of the year is autumn, or as most southerners call it fall. Fall is the time of year when football comes on, the leaves change, bonfires are in full swing, and anything pumpkin and apple is selling. The anticipation of all the little trick-or-treaters, and knowing that family will be around in just a few short weeks makes the heart warm from the inside out. Fall brings Thanksgiving, Halloween, and much more, it also starts to bring everyone’s heart out. Everyone has a bigger heart it seems when fall comes and makes it appearance for a few months, after that it leaves one longing for it until it comes back around. Fall is full of wonderful things that make the season what it is. At the beginning of an East Tennessee fall, all which is heard is “Go big orange!’ All people want to see are the mountains’ trees changing from the bright green and dull green colors into reds, oranges, yellows, and some deep purples. The changing of the leaves’ color and the yelling of Tennessee Volunteer fanatics are how one will know the wonderful season fall is upon us. When fall arrives, Starbucks starts to sell pumpkin spice lattes, and Wal-Mart sells pumpkins to carve. Some will start to see women and men drinking the hot and delicious pumpkin spice lattes and children planning what to carve on their pumpkins. With children planning to carve pumpkins, people will start to see the pumpkins with rather menacing, and some humorous, faces carved into......

...agreement of buying back the finished polished gems by Wisconsin. Also they accepted the drafts and made full payment to the applicant, which I suggest they shouldn’t do. Because the price of the gems went down and also the issuing bank who bought the drafts from Midwestern are unable to collect the money from the buyers. As Wisconsin denied the side agreement with the Vietnamese buyers and there was no clause present for that in the drafts, Midwestern cannot claim the money. 2. “What risks were faced by Wisconsin when they undertook to accept the guarantee and to ship the goods under it?” Letter of guarantee is a type of commitment from the bank on behalf of its customers (buyer) to the third party (suppliers) and Promises to meet any financial obligations in case the customers fails to fulfill the requirement of the contract.

To Autumn Essay

...Change and progression throughout life are inevitable. Many authors attempt to outline the concept of metamorphosis in day to day life; however, few manage to captivate the notion in its entirety. To Autumn, a poem by John Keats, delineates the themes of change and progression through the evolution of the season of autumn. Keats is able to relate the season of autumn, and the remaining seasons to daily life and human experience through vibrant imagery, poetic structure, and linear progression of time, as well as through the use of multiple other poetic devices. Through his intricate attention to detail, as well as his straight-forward and naturalistic presentation of autumn, Keats captures - in a holistic manner - the essence of change and progression. The commencing stanza of To Autumn embodies a stage in autumn of abundance and ripeness. Throughout the entire stanza, the process of ripening progresses, until a point of near spoil in the closing line. Keats employs intense imagery to establish a ripened and seasoned depiction in the reader’s mind. Lines such as “fill all fruit with ripeness to the core” and “To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells”, clearly illustrate the maturation of the fruits of autumn. Furthermore, through the use of commas and semi colons, Keats elongates the stanza, as to provide a feeling of continual development. Moreover, through the repetitive usage of “o” and “u” sounds in words such as “gourd”, “plump”, “budding”, and “flowers”, he......

Ode to Autumn

...Stanza 1 Summary Lines 1-2 Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; * From the title it's clear that the speaker is talking about autumn. The speaker briefly describes the season and immediately jumps into personification, suggesting that autumn and the sun are old pals. * "Mists" often accompany chilly weather because the moisture in the air condenses into a vapor when it's cold. * "Mellow fruitfulness" sounds like something people would say at a wine tasting, doesn't it? "Mmm...this season has a mellow fruitfulness, with just a hint of cherry and chocolate." The word "mellow," meaning low-key or subdued, is a good fit for autumn, with its neutral colors and cool, yet not cold, weather. And it's also the season when many fruits and other crops are harvested, making autumn fruit-full. * Autumn is a close friend of the sun, who is "maturing" as the year goes on. "Maturing" could be a polite way of saying "getting old." The sun is no longer in its prime. * A "bosom-friend" is like that friend you told all your secrets to in junior high school. Lines 3-4 Conspiring with him how to load and bless With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run; * Ah, so now the sun and autumn are "conspiring," eh? Looks like we might have to separate the two of them. What are they whispering about over there? * OK, so not quite as thrilling as we thought. They are planning how to make fruit grow on the vines that......
