The Colored Museum makes readers question themselves about the stereotypes to black people and uses metaphor to rise up the topic of gender and race. And the creative setting and the idea of exhibition indeed draw a lot of attentions. I really enjoy the narrative part for each exhibitions. One of the most interesting monologues to me is “Gilt on Board”. The fly attendants Miss Pat is trying to show the instructions to the people on board. I think it is really interesting that even though she is talking to us but she is actually referring to the salves when they are sailed by boats to North America. She is using smile all the time and telling jokes. But this is kind of black humor actually put a lot of insight to the African American people. From the beginning when they first came to America. And she is saying don’t panic, but it’s more like threaten because slaves don’t have any rights on the boat. I do think the order of the exhibitions is really important. First, we can see from the title The Colored Museum is actually talking about the African American museum. And all the exhibitions are trying to show the history and encounter such as stereotypes or discrimination for African American people. So all the exhibitions are writing in historic order so that we are really like visiting a museum. Also, this order can let us understand more about why we have this kind of race issue logically. Different orders represent different hot race issue in different time period.…...

Play Analysis for Colored Girls

...For Colored Girls Play Analysis For Colored Girls is a play written by Ntozake Shange at the peak of the black feminist movement, in 1975. It is a collection of poems that tell the story of seven women of color and how their lives interconnect. The play deal with deep subject matter such as rape, abortions, domestic abuse, and faith, as is delves into the lives of these women. The play ends as all of the women come together with an empowering scene about the strength in womanhood. How do struggles, specifically ones imposed on women such as rape and domestic abuse, create strength and empowerment that would have never been attained without enduring such life experiences? In For Colored Girls, all of the women find strength in each other and faith in order to overcome their individual struggles and find strength to continue on with life. They become stronger individuals that they once were and that strong power that they now posses is from believe in themselves and their ability to persevere. In the 2009 film, Precious, a young girl lives through torment as she grows up in section 8 housing with an abusive mother and father, but when she decides that she has had enough she breaks free to try to obtain the life she has always dreamed of.

Zauner Ornaments Case Analysis

...determining the best costing method for their overhead costs, in addition to understanding the following concepts: 1. differences between traditional costing systems and activity-based costing, and 2. proper allocation of overhead costs with identification of activities and its associated costs. Zauner Ornaments are launching three different products for their expansion. Yu doubts if the selling prices set by the Sales Department are enough to generate profit for each product line. Then, she analyzed the unit costs for their products to see if the selling prices can cover the product costs. Currently, Zauner allocates its factory overhead on the basis of production volume, but there is a significant loss per unit for the small colored glass ornaments. Their Operations Director, David Metz, suggests in contrast that overhead allocation based on prime costs (sum of direct material and direct labor costs) will result to lower product costs and therefore result to profits per product line. Yu is convinced that both overhead allocations are not accurate enough to trace the costs associated to each product. As such, she tries to divide the support costs using the activity-based costing system. Problem Statement We have identified the issues for the case as follows: 1. the costing system Zauner should use to allocate the factory overhead in order to accurately capture the product costs; and 2. the proper identification of the cost drivers in the allocation......

For Colored Girls

...For Colored Girls In this film, I believe I will be reviewing a movie that will provide motivation and encouragement to all women of color, not only for African American women, but other cultures as well. Because this is a Tyler Perry film, I also expect it to be very humorous. The film classification of this movie is fiction. The physical qualities of this film are music, live action, narration, color, background noise, and dramatization. The tone of this film is serious yet joyful. I chose serious because each experience the women went through was very sad and realistic. They were not funny, and were eye openers to me. I chose joyful because in the ending, every woman received her joy back. They were able to face their obstacles and make a decision to move past them. This film most certainly conveys its message effectively. As a tool of communication, the strengths were the various ways the writer made you feel as if you were actually in the film, each scene was very realistic. The weakness that I found in this film was the scene when both of the women, Tangie and Alice, were saying their poems at the same time. I was unable to understand either of the poems thoroughly. I wanted to hear them both out individually. The film maker wanted the audience to feel each woman’s experience, including their pain. The film appeared more to the viewer’s emotion. It made me feel a sense of hope for women. It made me view their circumstances differently, and also made me realize how......

But later different government rehabilitates the previous status of being bias in the country, whereas George W. Bush also supported formally not proper thoughts and was supported for their mission. In Barack Obama's administration, the mission and objective of the NAACP was almost achieved, due to the members and Barack Obama in the same organization. After achieving the president ship in the United States of a colored america, all the previous bias and prejudice almost ended. This organization usually conduct the campaign which eliminate the biased for colored American and in case of any discrepancy reported, with African American, specially on the bases of prejudice so the Association protest the government of the United States to create the unbiased environment for the colored American. However, they usually protest for the civil rights of the African American, and time to time arrange the rallies and campaigns to show the quantity of the African American which ultimately shows the power of them as well.

A Black Woman’s Journey: for Colored Girls

...A BLACK WOMAN’S JOURNEY: FOR COLORED GIRLS Created in 1975, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/ When the Rainbow is Enuf, focuses on the struggles of black women not only from that era, but issues still pertaining to black women 35 years later. Shange’s powerful choreopoem is comprised of seven women trying to "sing a black girl's song…. Sing a song of life, she's been dead so long"(Shange 18), creating a voice for every woman. None of these women possess a name, only a color, to show that they represent all women of color. Shange includes themes of love, abandonment, sexuality, abortion, and domestic violence to emphasize what women in her community were and still are subjugated to. Through dance, poetry, and music these women slowly but surely find their true identity. Ntozake uses her work as a tool to empower all “colored girls” by creating these seven strong women that form a bond when they are able to find their identity as black women, and essentially in their journey make it to the end of their rainbows without committing suicide. When looking into Shange’s life there’s no question that situations, which she had observed day-to-day or experienced herself, were imposed on her writings. Born as Paulette Williams she was raised in a middle class family, which was not a childhood common for blacks. Her family moved to St. Louis and she attended a non-segregated school where she had to endure blatant racism at the mere age of eight years old. She......

Using Natural Dyes from Plants in Producing Colored Paste

...Using Natural Dyes from Plants In Producing Colored paste Abstract: Paste is a type of glue made from starch or dextrin, a starch product. This investigatory project shows that we can produce our own colored paste without spending much time and money and by performing simple steps. That’s why this Science Investigatory Project can help students save their money instead of spending it in buying expensive and commercialized colored glue. In addition, this colored paste can be an additional source of income. It’s not just affordable, it’s also safe and non-toxic because the ingredients used are starch, water, natural dyes from plants and alum. Alum is used as preservative to prolong the shelf-life of the paste. Natural dyes from plants like Annatto seeds, mayana and turmeric were tested as coloring for this paste. We can also used other coloring from plants by researching and do further study to improve the quality of this colored paste. Introduction: Background of the Study: Nowadays our country has big problem about our economy. Everyone to solve it, but what do you think are the possible ways to prevent his crisis? I suggest that being practical is one of the solution to this problem. As students, we can be practical by using our heads instead of wasting our money. This project do not need much time and money because we can make our own colored paste within a short period of time. The basic ingredients are water, alum, natural dye from plants and cassava starch.......

My Voyage to the Mojave Desert

...plant life except for small patches of weeds and cactus. And i wondered what kind of place are we going to that is this sucluded from society. Skyler and Logan asleep from being bored from constantly watching nothing but miles and miles of sand, stone, cactus, and brushes, are awoken when we came upon a borax mine museum next to the actual mining pits that are still being used to this day. We decided to stop in the meseum to look around. Instantily when Jeremy turned off the vehicle i felt a little change in the temperature. It was really felt when i opened the door. The heat hit me and took my breathe away as a sucker punch would to the stomach. within moments of standing outside the car waiting for everyone else to exit the car i felt the incredible force of the sun beating down on my back and begining to sweet from all parts of my body. The air was so dry that i quickly lost the moisture in my mouth and required a drink to quinch my thirst. so i encouraged them to enter the meseum where it should be air conditioned and i could get my drink. After the meseum we continued for another 45 minutes as we finally entered our destination of Mojave, California. Driving into the city there were pools in almost house but noone in any of them. We drove by bussiness' but noone walking around on the streets. The only people we seen were other people driving around. It felt erie seeing as much development as i did but noone outside to enjoy it. The landscape was similar to......

For Colored Girls

...Cierra Stewart Audience Analysis #2 1. What is the thesis/main argument of your speech, and what do you want your audience to do after listening to your speech? * Guns are one of the most popular and effect defensive mechanism. I do not except the United States to completely eliminate guns because that will only allow people to break the law. It is a legal right as a citizen to bear arms. However, I do believe that stricter gun regulations, laws and accurate licensing can promote a safety environment, decrease crime and save the life of people. When people are done listening to my persuasive speech on gun control, I want them get a thrall background check to ensure as a citizen, they are equipped to carry a firearm. I want them to adhere good training of a gun and seek understanding on how to properly use one. If need be, maybe go to 4 to 8 week course on gun control and safety. I want my audience to seek help if they are amongst the few people that use guns as a weapon instead of a self-defense tool. Those that have a gun invest in a safe storage and trigger lock if they have not already to ensure safety. 2. What characteristics, beliefs, attitudes, or values of the audience are significant to consider when persuading them on this issue? * While trying to persuade someone that stricter law regulations, laws and licensing of gun control can guarantee that individual’s environment is nonviolent, crime is decreased and lives are saved; I would have to adhere...

Photosynthesis and Different Colored Light

...consistent. I also made sure to have a large sample size of 24 seeds for each color just in case some did not sprout correctly. I provided a much lower chance of error by using so many seeds for all three colors. Procedure: After obtaining all of the needed materials listed above, I first started by putting an inch of soil in the bottom of every peat pot, which is a total of 24 peat pots, put into 3 separate groups of 8. I then put 3 radish seeds in each peat pot. After placing the radish seeds in there, I covered all of the seeds with another 2 inches of soil. The peat pots are 3 inches deep. I set the 3 groups of 8 peat pots on a table inside my outside covered greenhouse area. Setting the groups about 6 inches apart, I wrapped the bags of colored cellophane over the groups of planted radishes. Every day, I went out at about 5 at night, uncovered the plants, and watered the plants with the well water that we use at our house. I put water into the peat pots until it overflowed out onto the table. After I was done watering them, I recovered them and put them back where they were. At week 3, they finally started to come out through the top and that is when I started measuring the growth of the leaves of each one. After the third week, I measured them every Thursday, and recorded the height of the plants until week 7. I used my phone camera and took the first set of pictures at week 6, when the radishes were able to stand up straight. At week 7, I could tell the radishes......

Central Park 5

...Central Park Five Discrimination and stereotypes have been a problem in the United States for a while now. There are many stereotypes for different races and there have been many cases of discrimination throughout history. In the United States, most discrimination cases are against the colored community, this includes the African American and the Hispanics. It is really easy for the police to believe that colored people are the ones responsible for many of the crimes that happen in the United States. In 1989, five young boys, Korey Wise, Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Raymond Santana, and Yusef Salaam, were falsely accused of raping a twenty-eight year old white jogger in Central Park, New York and served up to thirteen years in prison without people questioning their innocence because they had colored skin. In April of 1989, a white female went for a jog at Central Park. She was raped multiple times and was beaten up at 10:30 pm. Her rapist left her in very critical conditions. She was found at 1:30 am by two other joggers. The joggers found the victim unconscious and almost nude. Five young colored boys were accused of raping the woman. On April 21, 1989, the Daily News newspaper in New York printed an article called “Wolf Pack’s Prey”. The article gave details about the case. The news paper used quotes that police officers would say when they would talk about what they heard in the confessions. For Example, the Daily News says, “ One youth admitted to rape and......

A General Technique for Fast Comprehensive Multi-Root Planning on Graphs by Coloring Vertices and Deferring Edges

...comprehensive multi-root (CMR) planning problem, in which feasible paths are desired between multiple regions. We propose two primary contributions which allow us to extend stateof-the-art sampling-based planners. First, we propose the notion of vertex coloring as a compact representation of the CMR objective on graphs. Second, we propose a method for deferring edge evaluations which do not advance our objective, by way of a simple criterion over these vertex colorings. The resulting approach can be applied to any CMR-agnostic graph-based planner which evaluates a sequence of edges. We prove that the theoretical performance of the colored algorithm is always strictly better than (or equal to) that of the corresponding uncolored version. We then apply the approach to the Probabalistic RoadMap (PRM) algorithm; the resulting Colored Probabalistic RoadMap (cPRM) is illustrated on 2D and 7D CMR problems. I. I NTRODUCTION Many real-world tasks require a robot to quickly accomplish multiple subtasks without a prescribed order. Consider a personal assistant robot clearing several objects from a tabletop, or a manufacturing robot performing several welds on a novel workpiece. Furthermore, each subtask often permits multiple suitable robot configurations such as grasps of an object or orientations of a tool. Even if only one end effector pose is valid, manipulator redundancy enables many feasible configurations. We are interested in efficiently finding feasible......

How It Feels to Be Colored Me Analysis

..."How it Feels to be Colored Me" was written in 1928. Zora, growing up in an all-black town, began to take note of the differences between blacks and whites at about the age of thirteen. The only white people she was exposed to were those passing through her town of Eatonville, Florida, many times going to or coming from Orlando. The primary focus of "How it Feels to be Colored Me" is the relationship and differences between blacks and whites. In the early stages of Zora's life, which are expressed in the beginning of "How it Feels to be Colored Me," black and whites had little difference in her eyes. She didn't even seems to differentiate between the two until her early teens. She says, "I remember the very day I became colored." Before this time, she cites the only difference being that "[white people] rode through town and never lived there." During this part of her work, Zora is showing her childhood view that whites and blacks are no different from one another. This view changes as a result of her being sent to a school in Jacksonville. Now being outside her town of Eatonville, she began to experience what it was like to be colored. "But I am not tragically colored," she says. Zora makes it a point to show how she is not ashamed to be colored. At this point she seems to attack whites who continue to point out that she is the granddaughter of slaves by saying that blacks are moving forward. "The terrible struggle that made me an American out of a potential slave......

The Pros and Cons of Placing a Colored Child in a White Home

...The Pros and Cons of Placing a Colored Child in a White Home Kenji Johnson BSHS/301 December 14, 2011 Dr. Christine Karper The Pros and Cons of Placing a Black Child in a White Home What are the pros and cons of placing black children in homes with white guardians? When this subject is brought up I can’t think of any pros but a lot of cons comes to mind; such as the children growing up feeling confused and out of place, being teased and picked on in school because the kids see that the child is black but his mom and dad are white, the children growing up feeling as though they did something wrong because their biological parents didn’t want them. Many advocacy organizations do not support the idea of placing black children in white homes. But people also claim that it is not in the best interest of the children to experience placement delays because there are no foster families available that are the same race as the child. I think it would be in the best interest of the children if they were placed in homes of the same race because they won’t grow up having all different types of feelings and emotions that can bring down their self-esteem. Being raised by your race as a child helps you to identify who you are, where you come from as well as to really appreciate who you are and where you come from. Another reason is that the children won’t know that they are adopted unless the parents decide to tell them. If they are old enough that they already know what’s......
