...Introduction: The Story of an hour is a short story written by Kate Chopin whose feminist ideas rocked the world in the early in the mid 1800’s where women’s lib movements were in their infancy. The lack of control over their lives make female emancipation a distant dream and it was due to the death of a loved one that much cherished independence of self could be attained. Kate Chopin lived life on her own terms and in her works allowed her support of women’s independence and sexual freedom to shine through which was shocking to the society still warped in long skirts and layers of petticoats. She focused her attention on love, sex, marriage, women, and independence and raged against the unjust world which viewed women as a lawful property. Her assertion that self matters above all love comes through brilliantly and the protagonists cry for freedom triumphs over her love for her husband.(Chopin) Plot overview: The story describes the one hour in the protagonists life where in she experiences heart wrenching grief, ecstasy of freedom and death. Louise Mallard is a typical housewife who is beset with the familiar problems awaiting the arrival of her husband. Her sister, Josephine at the beginning of the story breaks the story of her husband’s fatal accident gently and Louise cries in her arms with wild abandonment. The reader is introduced to the mysterious heart trouble which Mrs Mallard suffers from and this ailment keeps its date with Mallard’s destiny till the very end.......

First there is a product known as guava- a fruit that is grown in the tropical forest that is rich in dietary fiber and vitamin C. Second, Ginger is a plant grown in the tropical rain forest. Ginger is used as a delicacy for culinary purposes, medicine research, and this product from the rain forest of South Asia is often used as a spice. Next, tropical wood is found in both Malaysia and Indonesia. Tropical wood is used to produce furniture in some areas. Paprika is another tropical spice that is made from the ground. Furthermore, the pineapple is a tropical plant that has a sweet flavor, yellowish in color, and low in saturated fats. Next, we have Cayenne Pepper that is grown in Guinea. Cayenne Pepper is used as a cooking spice. For dinner, I had consumed some Raw Kale that was topped with Cayenne Pepper. Last, we have Agave which is natural sweeter nectar from the Agave Plant.

Ginger Mixed with Spice Is Not Very Nice

...Ginger Mixed with Spice is Not Very Nice When I found out last spring that I would be spending my first year at Southwest Minnesota State University in Sweetland Hall, I couldn’t have been more ecstatic. Can you blame me? With bigger rooms, air conditioning, an (almost) private bathroom, and an awesome roommate, Jane*, Sweetland seemed like the ideal place to be. Unfortunately, the reality of what I was about to get into slapped me across the face the day I moved in. It wasn’t the roommate (Jane is fantastic), it wasn’t the air conditioning (can’t complain about that), it wasn’t the bathroom (it’s an almost private bathroom!), and it wasn’t the bigger room (you can always use extra space). It was one of the girls who shared the bathroom with us, our “bathroommate.” She was a little bit, well, psychotic. Obviously I didn’t come to this realization on the first day, but it didn’t take very long before I was convinced that the girl needed professional help. For starters, she called her mom…every hour. And it wasn’t a quick “Hi/Hello” deal. No, she would have extensive, loud, and unnecessary conversations with her mom at least seven times a day. How do I know this? Well as I previously stated, Ginger* was very loud; I’m pretty sure you could hear her shrieking voice anywhere within a five mile radius. Because she was so loud (and because I have a slight eavesdropping problem), Jane and I could hear the content of her conversations. At first they were about the room,......

Dalandan and Ginger Extracts as Housefly and Cockroach Repellent

...usually used in many households in order to control these pests. But the high price and health problem from branded chemical insecticides gives dilemma to Filipino household. Respiratory diseases can also result from continuous use of these insecticides especially since chemical substance from the product are inhaled by a person. This study seeks the possibility of using the extracts of ginger and dalandan to repel and eliminate insects, particularly, houseflies and cockroaches. The Dalandan and Ginger extracts as an insecticidal spray can be possible by the botanical and chemical properties that can be found within the fruit and crop. Dalandan have a chemical property which is known as d-limonene that has the capacity to melt the protective wax coating of insects, affecting their respiratory system. Ginger contains gingerols and shogoals that give ginger its hot and warming qualities, responsible for their ability to suffocate the insects. In making the insect spray, the dalandan was squeezed in order to get its extract, while the extracts of ginger were juiced out by chopping the ginger into smaller pieces and squeezing it until the juices reached the measurement given. For additional d-limonene substance (orange oil) which was extracted from the dalandan peels soaked in a jar with alcohol and was left on a sunny place for one week. To finish the product, all extracts were mixed in a sprayer. Salt was added as preservatives, which aid the capacity of the extracts......

...Polito 1 Chris Polito Paola Brown Eng102 25 March 2008 Single Parent Struggle For many years, children growing up in a single parent family have been viewed as different. Being raised by only one parent seems impossible to many yet over the decades it has become more prevalent. In today’s society many children have grown up to become emotionally stable and successful whether they had one or two parents to show them the rocky path that life bestows upon all human beings. The problem lies in the difference of children raised by single parents versus children raised by both a mother and a father. Does a child need both parents? Does a young boy need a father figure around? Does the government provide help for single parents? What role do step-parents and step-siblings play? With much speculation, this topic has become a very intriguing argument. What people must understand is that properly raising a child does not rely on the structure of a family but should be more focused on the process or values that are taught to these children as they learn to mature. Children of single parents can be just as progressive with emotional, social and behavioral skills as those with two parents. People claim that the only way for children to gain full emotional and behavioral skills is to be raised by both a mother and a father. When a topic such as this one has a broad amount of variables it is impossible to simply link these problems to only having one parent. In the article, “Single-parent......

Stereotypes and racial profiling has shaped immigration policies in America. Show visual aid (Martinez Jr., 2010) a.

Walnuts, Sardines, Salmon, Cauliflower, Tofu, and Shrimp are some other sources of Omega three fatty acids; the list is remarkable, which makes it easy to obtain in our daily diets. ("Omega three fatty acids") Question: How much of omega three fatty acids should I take if I have heart disease? Answer: The American Heart Association recommends that people who have coronary heart disease or that are a high risk of coronary artery disease eat a variety of oily fish at least two times per week. Two servings of oily fish provide 500mg of omega three fatty acids. It is documented that 1000 mg or 1 gram of omega three fatty acids should be consumed by either eating cooked oily fish or by supplementing with a high quality fish oil.
