It was nine o’clock on a saturday morning. The weather was cold, wet and muddy on MHMFC oval. The bad weather did not matter to Eden, or to his fellow team mates. All that mattered, was to come out victorious, and escape defeat to the leaders of the league table. Luiz, the centre back and tremendous captain of the team, was pale, his bushy hair was flat, and his nerves were shaking all over the place. This win, would be a great success of the season, it would guarantee fifteen boys a spot in the finals. They deserved to be there, the team had been strong through sickness and injury, through thick and thin, through ups and downs. Eden saw the uncertainty in his teams face, their eyes were focussed on the floor rather than the pitch. The coach was running late as usual, and it seemed that this time Luiz was not getting up to make the before game motivational speech, instead he sat there scratching his boofy head. On the other side of the field, moving in sequence behind a young man with a whistle and a ball, were the opponents. Each of them were individually bigger than Luiz and his team. They were fit, obedient and consistent, the perfect team. Eden took his glance away from the other boys, to see a black SUV pull up in the car park, late as usual. The MHMFC under fifteens coach came rushing from the car, his adidas tracksuit and nike cap made it obvious to the boys that their coach had finally arrived. The team murmured amongst each other, none of them were ready. Eden broke the silence. “It’s about time he showed up, it’s only the most important match of our season” Giggles went around the team. “Our jersey is green, our coach’s jersey is adidas and nike” Laughter poured out, the first sign of optimism in a while. “Boys, it’s good to see you laughing!” The coach stormed through, clearly late but no one said a word about it. “Now we haven’t got much time, but lets…...

Only electric lights running endlessly in parallel lines covered the ceiling of the hall. She was sitting in the very centre; her head crouched between her knees. She was afraid to speak or question where she might be. She could hear footsteps in the distant but could not make out where they were coming from. The burning lights had gradually blinded her eyes. This must be the Ministry of Love she thought. It seemed hours ago that she was thrown violently into this premises and she was starving. She understood why she was here but did not understand how. She participated in sexual acts that were strongly condemned by the Party. The crime would be punished by death, no questions asked. When will they shoot her? She wanted her life to end now. Freedom is to say that humans have two eyes. She will never experience freedom again she pondered. O\'Brien entered the hall. She could tell by his distinctive strides. He grabbed her by the hair and began speaking in an authoritative tone, \"You are here for committing crimes against the Party\'s principles. You are thinking why I am not going shoot you. Are you not?\" She gave him a look of disgust and purposefully did no answer. \"There is no need to be silent,\" he commanded, pulling her hair even harder. She was not going to allow physical......

Period Piece

...“Period Piece” by Joyce Cary Summary «Period Piece» written by an Anglo-Irish writer Joyce Cary is a humorous short story. It is basically about a respectable middle-aged man, Frank Tutin, who has fallen in love with his young secretary Phyllis. As a result Tutin wanted to divorce his wife Clare, but his mother-in-law Mrs. Beer protested against it and she came to London to save her daughter’s family. Old Mrs. Beer was the widow of a canon. She was a short, stout woman with a red face and a heavy jaw – a pugnacious and indomitable face. At the beginning of the story we learn that there is something defeated about her.

But at the end of the story, when we understand that her words turned out to be true and helped to save her daughter’s family, she felt like a winner, maybe for the first time in her life: «Even in the way she slaps down the cards, one can see a certain self-satisfaction. It seems that she cherishes one victory». As far as Tutin is concerned, he is a humane, a kindly and a thoroughly good natured, man, hating to quarrel with anybody.

The first stage is searching for challenges and it refers to the small issues or problems that people sometimes often overlook. This stage is about forming a habit of constantly searching for challenges, as stated in the University of Phoenix e-book the Art of thinking a person can only be in a response to challenges that you perceive. Expressing the problem or issue is the second stage and the objective is to find the best expression or problem that one would yield the most helpful ideas.

The third stage is investigating the problem or issue and it focuses on obtaining information necessary to deal effectively with the problem or issue. Individuals search their past experience and observations for information on the current problem at hand. The four stages are producing ideas, and these stage......

...Sherman 1 “An Explosive Piece” Kelsey Sherman Professor Jill Palacki ART 101-53 December 11, 2013   Sherman 2 After visiting the Philadelphia Art Museum, I chose to looking Ellsworth Kelly, and the “November Painting.” Kelly is a Modern American artist from New York. He studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn from 1941-1943, and also studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston from 1946-1948. Kelly travel to France in 1949 and infrequently attended classes at Ecole des beaux-arts where he was introduced to Surrealism and Neo-Plasticism that inspired many of his future art pieces (Guggenheim). Ellsworth Kelly’s “November Painting” was painted in 1950. It is an oil piece painted on wood in a white frame. The only colors that are displayed in the painting are black and white that makes the piece organized and concise, while also creating a nice contrast. The canvas itself is a slightly off-white. The off-white canvas is somewhat textured from the oil paint. Intermittently dispersed across the canvas are small, separate black and white geometric shapes, which unlike the background retain a smooth surface. The shapes are unorganized, and do not seem to be of any particular pattern. The shaped are not identical to each other, making each one unique and completely random. They contain to their own space, and do not intersect with each other (Philadelphia Museum of Art). “November Painting” is an experimental piece that began as a black and white......

... Back on the bus, Igor was trying to enjoy his ride home, but was unable to relax. Everything made a noise; the scratching of the wheels, his feet softly moving across the floor, and that damn plastic bag crinkling, cracking, constantly. Sliding his hands together into his lap, he realized their sound too. His senses were confused. Things he never imagined would have made a sound did, and it was so loud. Everything was loud now. It was a new type of silence. Where is my heartbeat? I cannot feel myself anymore Finally feeling, he felt hunger. The bus goes over a bump. He startled himself from the sound of his gasp. He pulled up the dangling plastic bag, and opened the container of lukewarm pasta. Forgetfully forkless he grabbed a piece of slimy pasta with his index finger and thumb, like two controlled chopsticks. His eyes widening, he could not believe how loud he was chewing. It was echoing inside his jaw. Confused if people around him could hear him or not he ate rather slowly, almost sucking the pasta until he was able to swallow it. Chewing seemed to stressful, “Maybe ill try it again when I am at home, alone”. He told himself. Relived to be home. He Rushed through the thick Spanish cedar door and went to the bathroom. His socks glided on the tiled floor, which sounded like whispers in the background. He could not help but think someone was following him. The sound seemed to quiet and distant to be his. He turned on the tap. A loud click registered as he......

...ugfgfhhjjkk hlklgfgfCreative Toys Case Creative Toys Inc. 1. If Inventory were to be written down in the 4th quarter instead of the 2nd quarter, it could cause the company to be compromised. One of the reasons that the allowance occurs in the 2nd quarter is because Browne realizes that it will make expenses appear too high, but, it will reduce the impact of the lack of future sales. However, if inventory were established in the 4th quarter, where they are expected to increase quite a bit, the transition would be easier. This is the reasoning behind Gurchick’s insistence of waiting for the 4th quarter. On the down side, if sales do not increase as expected, the company would be in substantial trouble. They will have a great deal of over stated income, which will be caught by auditors. They will make adjusting journal entries for this, which will decrease net income. If this decrease is too substantial then the books will be in the negative. Browne understands that the Chatter Chick was over produced, and is prepared to deal with the consequence. Gurchick prefers to take a gamble and hope for the best. 2. The corporate culture at Creative Toys is probably quite tense at this point. With Browne and Gurchick disagreeing over the course of action, the employees at this point are most likely wondering what the outcome of the decrease in demand will be and whether the company will be able to make it through this. I think that everyone is probably quite worried and tense at......

...Critical and Creative Thinking in Society Short Essays William L Johnson PHL/458 June 26, 2014 Jenna Lopes Critical and Creative Thinking in Society Short Essays The Describe a situation of public interest in which critical and/or creative thought could have been used for a better outcome. Describe why it is important to think critically and creatively in similar situations. One situation that comes immediately to mind is the phenomenon of climate change we are currently dealing with and how we are woefully extemporaneous to cope with it. If critical and/or ingenious thought had been utilized by all concerned, in lieu of trepidation and denial, we would be in a more preponderant position to handle and curtail these climate changes. When the data that pointed to human-induced climate change first was made public, it seemed that fear and hysteria was the mundane theme in most discussions of the quandary. It has gotten more preponderant in recent years but it may be a case of too minute, too tardy. It is paramount to cerebrate critically and ingeniously because it avails you to visually perceive the whole picture. When you cerebrate critically, all sides of the quandary such as history, a source, a context are considered making an authentic and efficacious solution to a quandary more likely. Define free will, truth, knowledge, and opinion. Explain how we use them to form thoughts. What role does each play in critically assessing situations? We have free will when we......

By Laura not replying I hope I have not misunderstood her silence in thinking she is infuriated with me.

...social animal; an individual who is unsocial naturally and not accidentally is either beneath our notice or more than human. Society is something that precedes the individual.” Looking at modern society, people often choose to conform to the “group’s” opinion. People choose to discard their own personal identity to stay under the radar and avoid being labeled a misfit. This leads to the abdication of free will. In Taylor Swift’s recent music video “Shake it Off”, she uses both her lyrics, and images in the video to display to the audience how free will is discarded to obtain collectivism. When initially listening to the song, one first notices the happy and upbeat background music. Background music is often regarded as the most essential piece of a song as it is the biggest contributor in giving the audience their first impression of the song, the message. As explained in Dramas, Fields, and Metaphors: Symbolic Action in Human Society, first impressions are more than just the initial establishment of a person. First impressions create the foundation of one’s characterization of another and are the hardest to forsake in an attempt to change. Taylor Swift incorporates a very fast paced, upbeat background in her song. This generates a very positive and happy impression making the audience think of her as a cheerful buoyant person. Swift’s immediate attempt to make the audience like her is very similar to how people work hard to make others like them. Sometimes, people try so......

Her surrounding appeared as if all sound had been muted, all she heard were the so familiar voices in her head. The elderly woman next to her smiled innocently to her, Jane opened her mouth but her voice had abandoned her, as if she had been impaled in the throat. Foul air from the rusty vehicles touched the tip of her tongue. The clouds were low and heavy, the sunless sky seemed more dismal than usual. The dingy taxi rank where she hunched housed scents that would make most people wince, but not Jane, she barely even noticed it. All she smelt were the familiar scents to her, the damp dirty scent of the taxi rank, smelt to her like freshly baked muffins in the morning, among all the cheap mix of deodorants and aftershaves all she smelt was the rich essence of apricot she remembered so clearly. Her clothes were getting heavy and uncomfortable, her new shoes were now enveloped in a layer of grime, while her arms dangled uselessly at her sides. A cold breeze blew against her skin and sent a chill down her spine, the was no warmth of the sun to comfort her, just the memories she held so dear. Shutting her bright blue eyes tight, she felt a stream of warmth roll down her right cheek. ...
