Two Sides to One Story

...Jorge Diaz December 16, 2011 Period 1 AP World History Mr. Liles Two Sides to One Story The lineage of Abraham, Isaac-and Ishmael, a story of life and death, in two different perspectives, but which one is correct? The Quran does not state the name of the son that Abraham was commanded to sacrifice by Allah (The Quran. New Delhi 37:99–113), in the Bible Abraham is commanded to sacrifice his son Isaac (Bible 22;5, 8). Islamic scholars believe that the son promised to Abraham was Isaac, but when Allah commands Abraham to kill his only son, knowing that Ishmael was born first, this is the son Allah wanted Abraham to sacrifice (islamreligion.com). Judeo-Christian scholars will argue that Ishmael is not a direct son to Abraham as he was born from a servant, commonly explained as from a concubine (islamreligion.com). One might bring themselves to believe automatically what religion they are more inclined towards, whether it be; Christianity or Islam, as there is no legitimate answer to the question-was Isaac the “chosen” son, or was it Ishmael? In reality no one will ever come to agree on this question, as this is a question which touches emotional and stable foundations in ones life. The story of Abraham and Isaac in both Christianity and Islam states that the promised son was Isaac, and that Ishmael was conceived from a servant, but they both differ in who was the chosen son. This eludes to a more prominent......

That One Story

...It’s the first day of class and I already want to go home. You want to know why? I don’t know either. I just don’t feel like going to class today, but I have to. I went to my first class. And guess what? The teacher was boring me to death. I wished this semester was over because of her. I sighed. Then someone from behind me tapped my shoulders. “Yes?” I said as I turned to look at the person. Oh, a girl. “Sighing on the first day? That’s not good.” Then she smiled. Okay. That was weird. I was like ‘are we close or something?’, though I didn’t tell her that straight to her face. I just laughed. I’m not good with talking to girls, especially those who are prettier or cuter than me, even though I’m a girl too. I get intimidated by them. I’m the kind of girl that’s more comfortable with guys. “Is there someone sitting beside you? Is it okay if I sit there?” “It’s okay, I don’t mind” “Thank you!” and then she sat. We didn’t talk the whole time after she sat beside me. Maybe she doesn’t like me. I didn’t want to talk to her anyway. She seemed like a bitch. I sighed again, and then the teacher dismissed us. I was in a hurry to get out of that room but someone tapped my shoulders, again. And it was her, again. “What’s your next class?” she asked. “Its Business Communication, but I still have a 2-hour break before it starts. What about you?” “That’s my next class too; I think we have the same schedule. Mind if I look at your schedule?” “Sure.” Then I gave it to her.......

How Does Hossieni Tell the Story in Chapter One

...How does Hosseini tell the story in chapter one? In chapter one we are introduced to the narrator in first person however we are not told who. We are immediately aware something bad has happened in the winter of 1975 as Hosseini uses the weather to have an impact on the event in the first sentence and continues to describe what went on in the next few sentences. This stands out to the reader and comes across as the main event in the book, the thing the reader wants to find out. Hosseini seems to be using a double frame yet we don’t know what has happened but we know we are going to find out later on. Time is significant as it is used in the chapter heading and in the first sentence, as a reader we think Hosseini uses time to show his feelings and to tell the story through them. Hosseini quickly introduces us to a place: the ‘alley’, and uses a lot of strong verbs such as ‘crouching’ and ‘crumbling’ which also mirrors how he feels about what happened. The first paragraph of the chapter is to set the story which is in contrast to the second one where there is a flashback to ‘one day last summer’ another link to time. In the first paragraph Hosseini tells us about the past in Pakistan whereas in the second paragraph he mentions San Francisco so we know the story is going to change places. The story is in chronological order, even though it is told the date of the chapter is 2001, the story being told is in order and the story is kept in the past. The characters introduced in......

Stephen King: Two Books, One Story

...Stephen King: Two Books, One Story In 1974, the world was first introduced to Stephen King through the publication of Carrie. Since then, King has released over fifty-four novels, short stories and essays (King, Written Works). His themes are vast and touch such subjects as aliens, telekinesis, life in prison, trucks coming to life, and the end of the world. In 1999, a car accident almost ended Stephen King’s life. After his recovery, he published five novels that were received with poor sales and unkind reviews. When Under the Dome was released in 2009, it showed that Stephen King was returning to a formula that worked so well for him in a previous book called The Stand. To understand these two books, one must first understand their author. Stephen King was born September 21, 1947. His father abandoned his mother, older brother, and himself when he was two (King, Writing 3). His mother, Ruth took a succession of poorly paid menial jobs, leaving her sons in the care of various relatives. Stephen attended the grammar school in Durham and then Lisbon Falls High School, graduating in 1966. He attended college at the University of Maine, and that is where he met his wife Tabitha, who was also a student. In 1970, he graduated from the University of Maine at Orono with a B.A. in English, and his first child was born. Stephen worked as a high school English teacher for a few years in Maine while he started writing his first novel Carrie. Carrie was an instant hit and an overnight...

In the first weeks after a full course, retrograde and, to a lesser extent, anterograde amnesia are evident to the casual observer. But as time passes compensation occurs as in other forms of brain injury. the subject is often oblivious to the residual deficit. Unless specific memories essential to daily living are discovered to be unavailable the victim may never know for sure the extent of memory loss. Unless sensitive tests for spontaneous recall of personal preshock data are employed no one else will know either. Some are beginning to give the client a truly informed choice, although state laws still allow ECT to be imposed if the doctor feels that ''good cause'' exists. Assuming free and fully informed Consent, it is well to reaffirm the individual's right to pursue happiness through brain damage if he or she so chooses. But we might ask ourselves whether we, as doctors sworn to the Hippocratic Oath, should be offering it....

How Is the Story Told in Chapter One of the Great Gatsby?

...How does Fitzgerald tell the story in chapter one of the novel ‘The Great Gatsby’? In the opening chapter of the novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ Fitzgerald uses a variety of techniques such as intra-fictional narration from Nick and change in from to introduce the characters so as to keep the readers interested and to make the chapter memorable. The very begging of the novel is written in autobiographical fashion so as to allow the main narrator to introduce himself to the reader. It is through the use of Bildungsroman that we learn of nicks privileged upbringing Once again the ending is set in natural light with nick returning home in the moonlight to find the infamous Gatsby “regarding the silver pepper of the stars”. In this final romantic setting the readers, and nick, are introduced to Gatsby as “stretching his arms out” towards “the green light” at the end of daisy’s dock as if it were a religious icon he was longing to get closer to, it could also be interpreted that this light is almost his interpretation of his light to heaven with the oxymoron of it being green ( which is associated with nature, freedom and generally as a go sign) and the fact it is a warning light used to tell boats to stay away showing his confusion and unrequited longing for another. In this first glimpse of Gatsby, Fitzgerald not only links him with the romance and purity of the natural light of stars and moonlight, but his dream is symbolically identified as being false and artificial, thus......

...themselves, communicating with other dealers either electronically or literally over-the-counter. 9. Such organizations frequently pursue social or political missions, so many different goals are conceivable. One goal that is often cited is revenue minimization; i.e., provide whatever goods and services are offered at the lowest possible cost to society. A better approach might be to observe that even a not-for-profit business has equity. Thus, one answer is that the appropriate goal is to maximize the value of the equity. 10. Presumably, the current stock value reflects the risk, timing, and magnitude of all future cash flows, both short-term and long-term. If this is correct, then the statement is false. 11. An argument can be made either way. At the one extreme, we could argue that in a market economy, all of these things are priced. There is thus an optimal level of, for example, ethical and/or illegal behavior, and the framework of stock valuation explicitly includes these. At the other extreme, we could argue that these are non-economic phenomena and are best handled through the political process. A classic (and highly relevant) thought question that illustrates this debate goes something like this: “A firm has estimated that the cost of improving the safety of one of its products is $30 million. However, the firm believes that improving the safety of the product will only save $20 million in product liability claims. What should the firm do?” 12. The goal......

...difference between the higher government expenditure and lower revenue in a fiscal year excluding the money it has borrowed is the fiscal deficit. This is denoted usually as a percentage of its GDP. Budgetary Deficit Less than planned revenue in budget is the budgetary deficit. It includes Fiscal Deficit plus past debts before this fiscal year. Difference between Fiscal and Budget Deficit The major difference is of time period. Fiscal deficit accounts for a fiscal year were not enough money is available due to higher expenditure. Budget deficit is fiscal deficit plus past debts over the Government net sum of all past fiscal deficits, before this fiscal year. It means there is less receipt of revenue as planned in budget including the past ones.    Monetary Policy Central Bank of the country (Reserve Bank of India in our case) is the monetary authority of India. Expansion or contraction of money supply according to the need; controlling the money market; keeping the value of rupee stable and the tools to be used to implement these policies are the major roles to be played by the Reserve Bank of India effectively. Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) It is a quantitative measure adopted by Reserve Bank of India to regulate the money supply. Higher CRR will leave less disposable money with the banks and lower CRR with more disposable money to be circulated in the market.  During the inflation period CRR is increased and during deflation it is reduced.

...UNIT ONE INTRODUCTION TO CIVIC AND ETHICAL EDUCATION 1. INTRODUCTION 2. MEANINGS OF CIVICS AND ETHICAL EDUCATION The Notion of Civics The subject field of civics originates from the nature of human being itself i.e. from the natural behavior and level of interaction of human beings it self. One basic nature of human beings related with this statement is the fact that “man is a social animal” whose life is closely related to each other. Almost all instincts, demands and progresses of human beings are fulfilled in society. The superiority that human beings try to achieve over nature and other living things is the result of the social bond among human beings. If such bond is a requirement for the survival of human beings, then what should be the pattern of social interaction that exist among human beings is closely related with the subject matter of civics. In this regard civics is considered as a subject field which is mainly concerned with teaching citizens as to how they can live harmonious and peaceful life with other citizens and as to how they can resolve conflicts peacefully among them selves. The other basic nature of human being is the political view of philosophy by Plato that, “Man is a political animal”, which means no human being can escape from the deeds of politics and its dayto-day life is either directly or indirectly affected by it. For this reason human beings have to know the workings of politics, institutions that affect their day to day life, norms,......

...C A.$£~ 3 Jack Brandon's initial idea has not panned out, and the cash is nearly gone. But he's got a new plan. Will you back him a second time? HBR CASE STUDY Good Money After Bad? by John W. Mullins From a rocky perch overlooking the sparkling lights of San Francisco, Christian Harbinson gazed across the bay to the hills above Sausalito. "There's nothing like a vigorous hike;' he thought, "to clear the mind before a crucial meeting:' It was a mild March evening, and the 35-year-old venture capitalist was reflecting on the recommendation he would have to make to his firm's investment committee the next morning about Jack Brandon's young company, Seven Peaks Technologies. Seven Peaks had developed an innovative device for cauterizing blood vessels during electrosurgery, and although the feedback from surgeons had been excellent, sales had been slow. The Palo Alto-based venture capital firm where Harbinson worked, Scharfstein Weekes, had invested $600,000 in Seven Peaks from its newly raised second fund of $100 million. SW's current investment strategy focused on early-stage medical technology companies, and Seven Peaks was a typical investment for the firm, which liked to get in on promising ideas modestly and then follow with additional rounds of capital after technological and market milestones had been met. The $600,000 was nearly gone; Harbinson and his colleagues had to decide whether to put more into the......

Civil Rights - One Womans Story

...share how one event from the 1960s has influenced our personal life, our career choice, and the global community. It also asks us to discuss how our own life would be different if one specific event of the 1960s had never occurred and how different the world would be if that same event had never occurred. As the mother of bi-racial twin girls and as relates to the Civil Rights Movement, I thought this a very easy assignment, I was wrong. After writing several pages of text – the brutal honesty of my life - it occurred to me that I need to separate the project due to my own personal biases. Please let it be known that I am grateful for the Civil Rights movement and equal opportunity for all – race, creed, color and sex. I have a very good understanding of the Civil Rights Movement and will attempt to depict that in part two of my paper, however I have my own story as well and is that that I am going to include in part 1.

It is a long story and I will attempt to give a very simple version, though I will also admit my first thoughts were to alter it – to make this project easier.
