FOREVER A SLAVE In her TED talk, “The Fight Against Slavery”, co-founder of Prajwala and anti-trafficking crusader Sunitha Krishnan uses ethos and logos appeals but she mostly uses pathos in her speech. Sunitha uses pathos through the descriptions of how these women and children are treated, how many of them ended up in this situation, and how they are treated once they get out. Firstly, she talks of the horrific ways in which these people are treated. In one particular instance she speaks of a young girl named Shaheen. Sunitha describes what happened to Shaheen as follows, “Shaheen's background I don't even know. We found her in a railway track, raped by many, many men, I don't know many. But the indications of that on her body was that her intestine was outside her body. And when we took her to the hospital she needed 32 stitches to put back her intestine into her body. We still don't know who her parents are, who she is. All we know is that hundreds of men had used her brutally.” One shutters to think how someone could do this to another human being. Sunitha continues on to tell of the countless others who are brutally victimized through slave trafficking. The ways they end up in these situations are just as horrible. She uses both logos and pathos to describe this. She uses logos to point out how many of these people have no choice as this is there only means of providing for themselves and their families. The worst of it however is that, sadly, many of these women are often sold into sex slavery not by strangers, but by their own family members. One example in Anjali who was sold by her father so he could afford pornography. Sunitha talks of another child named Pranitha, and she said, concerning her, “Pranitha's mother was a woman in prostitution, a prostituted person. She got infected with HIV, and towards the end of her…...

...Forever 21: Dealing with America’s Fear of Aging and Death Margaret Kimble Developmental Psychology 210 Liberty University Abstract Mankind has tried to cheat aging and death by freezing their remains, cosmetic surgery or marrying outside their generation hoping to stay young. However, these attempts are futile and Americans cannot hold back the clock or trick death. The clock is ticking and when it stops I will die and so will you no one knows when. Although there is a great deal of research on aging and death, no one has discovered how to halt the inevitable. It is a scientific and biblical fact that human beings will age and die. All life ends in death. This paper will cover some of the issues regarding, fear of death, and fear of aging. It will also explore if Americans fear death and aging because we have no control over it or we don’t understand it. Fear of aging can be attributed the fear of our health failing; losing our memory, independence and the energy for living our lives to the fullest (Berger, 2001). Fear of death can be attributed to not being able to speak to someone who is still experiencing it. Many fear growing older because of the onslaught of mental deterioration such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease; which are attributed to old age. (Philipchalk, 1994). Fear of aging and death is caused by America’s negative concept; it is the natural progression of life. In Strongman’s research he found that a dominant aspect of aging is......

Slave

...its political policies, social ideology, and economic institutions. Slavery took place in each Roman’s live, being the master or the slave. At that time, slavery made citizens act in a cruel and inhumane manner to other human beings just because they own them. It began when masters started setting laws for the master/slave relationship. Which of course did not go in slaves favour? Masters use to abuse, murder, torture, treatment inhumane way, prostitution and many more. Slaves had no choice but to accept all these inhumane behaviors or they can always free themselves by paying the master the amount the master purchased them. This was impossible because slaves did not earn money for the tasks they had to perform. In my essay, I will be discussing two opposing views of the relationship that took place between the master and the slave. It will present if slaves really deserved to be treated in this kind of inhumane manner, or maybe they should have been treated as human beings not necessarily as equal to normal citizens. 1. In the source given below, it describes the inhumane treatment slaves suffered from their masters. Vadius pollio, an equestrian and a good friend of the emperor made sure that slaves would face the most inhumane death a person could ever face. Pollio would dash the slave in a pond full of lamprey eels, in which case the slave would be torn into piece within minutes. Shelton, J. (1998). As the romans did, a sourcebook in roman social history. (2nd ed.......

Slaves

... Slave Narratives 1. Why were the slave narratives recorded? The slave narratives are a unique historical record and were recorded to better recognise the travesties slaves faced and detailed the lives of African Americans who were born into bondage. 2. What are some of the baises that may be present in the slave narratives? There is only one visible bias in the slave narratives and that is that only one point of view is presented in regards to the notion of slavery. 3. Why are the slave narratives so important? The slave narratives are important as they allow historians to gain insight into slavery and the social/political viewpoints of both European and African American inhabitants. 4. Outline the daily lives of slaves as depicted in the narratives? The slaves worked on plantations from sunrise to sundown growing cotton and tobacco. Young slave children served as entertainment for white children, and overall slaves were used to serve the daily needs and wants of white settlers. 5. What was the importance of cotton to the plantation owners and what role did slavery play in this? Cotton was a large, prosperous farming ideal that was the majority export from southern plantation owners. Approximately 90% of income was produced from cotton. The slaves farmed the cotton and were in charge of picking and growing it. 6. What were some of the punishments and why were they inflicted? Jennie, a slave, ate a biscuit from a room in her owners house and was caught. She was then......

Changed Forever

...Changed Forever For years, I have wanted to visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. My youngest son had been there and was immensely touched by this. Therefore, I determined this assignment would be the perfect opportunity for me to visit and in turn write about it. Immediately, in all honesty, I understood that this memorial and museum was a dedication of peace and hope that will change you forever. The museum is a place of amazing transformation that offers a unique insight of the events that took place on April 19, 1995. As you enter the museum, the first item you see is a huge wall that states, “Just like communities everywhere, it is the start of a day like any other day”, but as you proceed, the story of that day is revealed gallery by gallery showing you that it was not an ordinary day. As you approach the end of the third floor, which is where the tour begins, you are greeted by Gus, an elderly man, probably in his early seventies and full of knowledge of the events that took place that day. He explains that we are about to hear an actual audio recording of a water board hearing that was held across the street from the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on the morning of the bombing. Our group, roughly 20 people, is ushered into a room where the audio is playing, approximately two minutes into the hearing; you hear a loud explosion followed by panicked shouting as the faces of the 168 victims killed that day are displayed on the......

Slave Narrative

...13 December 2012 The slave narrative has many elements that help to define the genre. They are found in spirituals, editorials, autobiographies, etc. Three key elements are the rebellion of slaves, humanitarianism, and the cruelty of the slave owners emphasized. All slaves were treated wrongfully in many ways. They were beaten, whipped, starved, and talked down upon. There wasn’t anything that they could do, but take the whipping. Not many slaves had the courage to stand up for what they believed in. But the few that did would fight back against their masters or run away. This is evident in Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass when Frederick Douglass described when he escaped from his master. “After his encounter with the two Irishmen at the wharf, Douglass decided to run away to the North.” Douglass didn’t want to live a slave life anymore, and decided to escape to the north. "My long-crushed spirit rose, cowardice departed, bold defiance took its place; and I now resolved that, however long I might remain a slave in form, the day had passed forever when I could be a slave in fact. I did not hesitate to let it be known of me, that the white man who expected to succeed in whipping, must also succeed in killing me.” Frederick Douglass describes how he resisted in being whipped by Mr. Covey. He “raised his hand” against Mr. Covey to stop him from doing so. Writing narratives could’ve been a slaves’ way to promote humanitarianism. Often when someone shares a......

Slaves

...A Slave’s Misery In this story Douglas’s purpose was to show the despair of all the slaves by recounting his memories when he was a little boy. The author begins the story with a description of his childhood of his early years as a slave. The author use begins it like this because he wanted to show us that a slaves’ hardship begins when they are young. Another reason why the author starts it like this because he is going to tell the story of his life when he was a little boy. (Douglass. l. 4) “By far the larger part of the slaves know as little of their ages as horses known theirs” to show us that the slaves were treated like an item and not as a human being. This also shows that his master was very strict and wanted his slaves ignorant. Douglass recounts details in his early life as a slave to induce sympathy from his reader. In the story Frederic Douglass talks about his parents for two apparent reasons. The first reason revolves around his mom. The reason why he talked about his mom is to show us that his mom was very caring and that she was someone that soothes and calms Douglas but due to slavery he did not really get to enjoy her presence. (Douglass l. 53) “I received the tidings of her death with much the same emotions I should have probably felt at the death of the stranger.” The fact that Douglass was not allowed to be present during her illness, death and burial is the reason why he said this quote. This also displays that Douglass has never felt motherly love...

Crispin: Form Slave to Son

...From Slave to Son In 1377 a boy named Crispin is orphaned after his mother dies. He flees his town because of being pronounced a wolf’s head, meaning that any man may kill him on sight, he meets a colossal man, his name, Bear. When Crispin meets Bear he is very outspoken and questions Crispin, once Bear discovers that Crispin is a wolf’s head he makes the boy swear to be his slave this is the first sign of compassion that Bear has for Crispin. For instead of killing him he takes care of him. After Bear makes Crispin his slave he asked him more questions when Crispin finally answered “It doesn’t matter… you’re already my master forever.” Bear later asked Crispin if he knew about music, “Music?” Crispin replied, “Have you lived your life under a rock? Were you born of sheep? Do you know nothing of drums, horns, and pipes? Do you even sing?” Bear exclaimed. Crispin replied that he didn’t know any of these things. Bear asked him what he could do. “I can follow an ox. Sow seed. Weed. Gather crops. Thresh wheat and barley,” Crispin said almost in a tone that sounded like he was defending himself from Bear’s questions. After their discussion Crispin followed Bear down the road pondering the thought that Bear might be mad. After a long walk Crispin asked why Bear even needed Crispin as a slave. “Here” he said holding out balls to me as if he wanted me to juggle “Let me see how skilled you are.” This is another sign of Bear’s interest in Crispin. Crispin tried and......

Forever with You

...Forever With You PROLOGUE I never knew life could be this cruel. I never knew it would all end up like this. Life is so unfair. And I started to dwell on that fact. Why would he have to be the one? A tear fell from my eye. No! This can’t be happening! I knew at an instant that our battle is over. I broke into a run outside the hospital and as soon as I was out, the crisp of the cold night air engulfed me. I screamed at the top of my lungs as a blinding flash of light struck my eyes. I saw a glimpse of a shiny black Volvo: the very same car that started all these misery. It’s the car of death: the one that almost killed me and my beloved. Instead of sprawling away from the road, I smiled unwarily as the loud tire screeches filled the silence of the night. I was sent flying over board as the bone shattering impact met my build. This must be what dying feels like. And if this is true love, we’ll see each other again. His words echoed in my mind. I fell on the road feeling the cold asphalt on my skin and that’s when I closed my eyes . . . forever. Chapter 1 Moving “Sehun-ah!” A booming voice awoke me from my trance. “You coming or not? The car’s waiting. Ppalli.” I mumbled something to myself as I caught a final glimpse on my window. Why do we even have to leave this house? The weather’s so good it’s a shame for me for not being able to enjoy it. Sigh. Screw this moving-somewhere-else idea. It would be fun skiing - without falling on the water of......

Forever Gold

...Forever Gold As I sit here, and reflect on the poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay" by Robert Frost, one story comes to my mind. On one particular afternoon, my family had decided to go to Prairie Winds Park, for a little adventure. When we arrived, my older brother had asked me if I wanted to ride a bicycle down the hill that the park had. Now, keep in mind that this hill is very large, almost perpendicular to the ground and covered in rocks and bumps. I, being the naïve girl that I was, didn’t even hesitate to say yes, or to think of all the injuries the trip down the hill on the bicycle could give me. And so, my older brother and I both settled on the bicycle ready to go downhill. The bicycle was clearly meant for one person so I sat on the metal frame in between the seat and the handlebars. We landed on the ground with the front wheels hitting the ground first and the back wheels still in the air. All the while, I was screaming my head off. The slight brush with death sent a chill down my spine. When I finally decided to open my eyes, I realized that both my older brother and I were safe. I was oh, so thankful. But even with the scare that I had had a little part of me wanted to do it all over again. So, we did. We continued, and each time, it was much more exhilarating. After about the third time, a person patrolling the park stopped our fun, and informed us about the many rules that we apparently were breaking.......

Forever 21

...communication. 4.1 Evaluation of Forever 21 and its need for crowdsourcing Forever 21 is a well-established company with a strong customer base within the younger generations from teens up to the 30s, it tailors its designs to appeal to this age group (Forever21 Inc. 2015). Crowdsourcing platforms Freelancer, WYRT and Spoonflower are not suitable for Forever 21 as they have a niche focus on innovative design. As design is a core capability of the company, it should be developed as a competitive advantage and never to be outsourced (Hirai A, 2012). WYRT also provides the service of market research through analysing trending statistics; However, given the goals and objectives of the company (refer to Appendix A), it should again work to enhance its designs, creating the trend instead of simply following. Hence these platforms would not provide much benefit to the company. Although it would be advantageous to form partnerships or sponsorships with these crowdsourcing platforms as they can be a channel to finding new talented recruits to join the company. In context of Forever 21’s operations and future projections (refer to Appendix A), I believe the crowdsourcing website oDesk would add the most value to the business in terms of cost minimization, innovation, as well as operational efficiency and effectiveness. As pointed out previously, oDesk encompasses a global network of users and skills pool (ODesk Corp. 2015), which could complement Forever 21’s business......

Diamonds Are Forever

...Jackie Labor Case Study #2: Diamonds are Forever 2/11/2015 Provide a historical overview of the campaign. What were the factors in the industry/market that led to it? What specific consumers were targeted? Did competitive factors play a role? When was it launched and how long did it run? Who were the key players/strategists/agencies involved? * During the time of this diamond campaign, there was a diamond rush going on in South Africa. Every diamond company raced over to start mining in South Africa. Cecil Rhodes had bought land from brothers Johannes Nicholas and Diederik Arnoldus de Beer. On March 12, 1888, De Beers Consolidated Mines Ltd. Was formed and the empire began to spread throughout Europe. Sir Ernest Oppenhiemer grew tremendous interest in the company and ended up establishing the Diamond Trading Co. in Kimberly, South Africa and London, England. Harry Oppenheimer was on the board of De Beer’s company. He took a trip to the United States to test a pilot marketing campaign but ended up with this full-fledged advertising campaign that has been successful ever since (Posnock, 2006). * In 1931, through the mist of The Great Depression and later World War 2, diamond competitors were emerging such as Gemological Institute of America (GIA), The Diamond’s Dealer Club of New York, and Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association (Posnock, 2006). * Russia found diamond mines that were similar to the ones found in South Africa, so they became a crucial......

Living Forever

...expiration date, planet earth will be crammed with billions of billions of humans. Resources to date are dangerously low and global warming is at an all time high, and with the rapid increase of population the demand for resources will become extinct. Even though the technology that you use would be amazing, the earth couldn’t survive immortal humans. Thus the value of life is the glue to help keep our society together. The more people alive the less the values of life is. Kind of like currency, the more the treasury makes the less the value money gets. With the less the value life is the higher crime rate. As you can see; the curse is immortality and I don’t agree that it should be welcomed to world. I understand the crave of living forever, or fear of dying but its not realistic to have earths population immortal. The loneliness would be unalienable, and resources extinct. The value of life would decrease causing the crime rate to increase. So for now, I’m a-okay with blowing out 90 candles....

Goodbyes Are Not Forever

...GOODBYES ARE NOT FOREVER I never thought I could get this attached to my classmates, so attached that I have mixed feelings as we graduate. I am happy for I know how much we’ve waited for this. I have felt our excitement for it vibrated throughout our classroom as we started with our countdown. I know that we’re happy because of the new freedom close at hand, a new challenge which perhaps tingle our spine from time to time. Yes, graduation has offered us a different kind of happiness. Yet, I’m sad deep within for I know that after this, we’ll go on our separate ways, living our separate lives. I have this creeping feeling we’ll barely see each other from now on. Hey! You’ll be pursuing your dreams and I’ll be pursuing mine. I’ll be forgetting my dear classmates for a while as I daringly take hold of a new chapter in my life, and I guess they’ll do the same too. You know, “forget the buried woes and dead despairs for there’s a brand new trial right at hand.” And then, as we settle down in our new “nest”, we’ll start remembering each other, and all shall be coming back – the laughters, the tears, the jokes, the songs – every little moment I have shared with them. But for now, I have to move on. I have to search for my rightful place in “the circle of life.” Then, though fate may separate us, I hope that sometime, somewhere, we’ll meet again. I shall look forward to that day when I can embrace you and we shall talk, laugh, cry......
