...Olivia Matthews Eng. 141 September 18, 2012 Week 3 Assignment Prof. Armstrong No human stands alone. People are always in a relationship with others and the world around them. In Karen Armstrong’s essay “Homo religious”, and Robert Thurman’s essay “Wisdom”, they explore those relationships between religion, self, the universe, and knowledge. In Karen Armstrong’s essay “Homo religious”, religion is talked about through the entire essay. In the Stone Age, art was used as a form of religion. People were guided through caves that had walls full of decorated paintings. Some of the caves walls were decorated by the Paleolithic ancestors over seventeen thousand years ago. The paintings were of animals of few species. The pictures symbolized artistic gratitude of the common universe. One would have to be very careful when walking through the caves, because they were unsafe, tiresome, unreasonable, and tedious. The common agreement is that the caves were a holy place and that, as in any sanctuary, their images mirrored a perception that was entirely unlike the external universe. “Like art, religion is an attempt to construct meaning in the face of the relentless pain and injustice of life.” (Armstrong, p. 25) As determine and investigating individuals, humans decline freely into depression. Religion is a callous struggle. Its perception is not noticeable and has to be prepared in a similar form as an admiration of art, music, or poetry must be established. But, in Robert......

...Gabriela Guadron Ms. Rachel Watts ENG 101 May 11, 2012 “Like a Good Neighbor State Farm is there” More than ninety-five percent of Americans own a car. This also means by law that ninety-five percent of Americans should own car insurance, but unfortunately not everyone does. For eighty-nine years State Farm has used the motto, "Be fair and do the right thing for the customers." Since the 1940s State Farm has been the nation's top auto insurer. It is important for State Farm to showcase, through television commercials, what their company can do for the customers. In 2010, State Farm created their new powerful imaginative "Magic Jingle Parking Lot" commercial to maintain their audience while keeping up with their o competitors. The commercial I decided to use was the one where three women are walking to the parking lot as they see a dent on one of the girl’s car. The girl that is a costumer made it seem simple and just said “Like a good neighbor state farm is there” and her agent appears immediately. After the other two girls saw this; they wanted to try the same thing. But they requested different type of agents. One of them said “with a hot guy” and a cute appeared. While the other girl exclaimed “Who is also sensitive” and her agent appeared. At the end of this commercial we see that each of the girls ended up with an agent that most fit them. State Farm uses techniques to draw in customers. Compared to other car insurances, State Farm makes themselves seem very......

...Gender Roles and/or Marriage ENG 125: Introduction to Literature In Guy De Maupassant's, "The Necklace" and Kate Chopin's, "The Story of an Hour" the characters are females who struggle with inner conflicts. Many differences as well as likenesses are identified between the two characters, which would like to make major changes in their life. “The settings of the stories take place in the late 1800's, which during this time women were restricted from doing many things such as: working outside of the home, they were controlled by their spouses, and they had to be subservient females”(Wikipedia). Mrs. Mallard is the main character in "The Story of an Hour" and Mrs. Loisel is the character in "The Necklace." The type of tone the writers chose for the main characters were discontent women, who yearned for a better life than their current one. Guy de Maupassant's "The Necklace" is the story of Mathilde Loisel, who resents her current lifestyle. When Monsieur Loisel presents his wife with an invitation to a formal ball, she bursts into tears because she has nothing elegant to wear. Mathilde's husband agrees to let her buy a gown, and, following his suggestion, she borrows a beautiful necklace from a friend. As a result, she has a wonderful time at the ball. Upon returning home she realizes that she has lost the necklace she borrowed from her friend. The Loisels replace it with a similar one, for which they enter into debt for ten years. One day Mathilde sees her old friend and...

I had to write a persuasive letter to the school principal, in an attempt to convince her that I should be chosen to represent Westside Elementary School’s fifth grade class at the annual Math Bee. Of the four fifth grade classes; myself and two other fifth grade students were chosen due to our high scores on the statewide math test. I saw this as an opportunity to finally represent my class because I have always loved to write; as well as, I really enjoyed math at that level. In my letter I chose to remind my principal how well prepared for class I am every day. Each day I showed up with all the items listed on my learning log. At the beginning of every school year each student was given a laminated learning log for their grade level. We were instructed to attach the learning logs to the front of our notebooks, as a reminder of what we should have when we arrive for school in the morning. Each day I came prepared with everything listed on the learning log. I also reminded my principal how polite and respectful I was to both she and my fellow classmates. I enjoyed school and I knew the importance of good behavior and respect. My parents would often remind me that what I did outside of the home reflects who they are and if I behaved poorly or in a disrespectful manner there would be consequences.......

...Student Name Professor Obermeier ENG 200 28 February 2001 He's Only Kidding, Right?: Warnings in Shakespeare's "Sonnet 95." William Shakespeare is the master of subtle humor and sexual puns. In his "Sonnet 95," a poem to a blond young man, both are seen while pointing out a couple of realities about sexual sin. He speaks directly to a young man whose physical beauty compensates for his lack of sexual morality. Shakespeare would like for this young man to realize that his handsomeness is the sole aspect of his person that prevents absolute disapproval of his behavior in other people, and he also wants him to be aware of the ultimate consequences of his actions. Through a clever use of diction, imagery, and meter in a typical Shakespearian format, Shakespeare warns his young friend of the risks involved with the overindulgence of sexual activity. In the first quatrain, Shakespeare presents the young man to the readers by contrasting his beauty and his character. He tells the young man that he renders "shame" (1) "sweet and lovely" (1). That is, he is much too handsome to be overshadowed by his questionable conduct. His "shame" may not be a dominant trait, but it does sneak around behind the scenes "like a canker" (2). A canker is a nasty internal ulceration, or growth; it is a flaw that cannot be seen in an otherwise beautiful object, such as a "fragrant rose" (2). This flaw in the young man, sexual vice, may "spot"......

The essay discusses the struggles she had as a child being in the 7th grade and moving from South Korea to Queens, NY. She went from being rich to being poor basically overnight. Her world as she knew it was changed in an instant. Her father went from being a billionaire to having nothing. Her main purpose is to describe what she faced while trying to adapt to different beliefs and cultures. Kim talks about her life going to a new school where everyone spoke English. She noticed that even Korean American kids avoided her. She had not realized there was much diversity within an immigrant group. There was definitely a separation between the groups. Being a teenager, she was “already rooted in Korean ways and language”. Her soul was not quite American although on paper that is what she was considered. She would rather use her Hello Kitty backpack instead of one that had pictures of the Menudo boys who were popular in the 80’s. She was upset that her parents would not allow her to pierce her ears. Most girls her age had their pierced. It sounds like she struggled to fit in and still keep her Korean culture Her lifestyle changed tremendously. She went from having a chauffer to taking public transportation. She had to get used to being called an Asian when she had only heard that term in school in...

...ENG 235 Final Exam Paradox of War It is said that men lose their rationale in war. The primitive instincts take over where knowledge and civility once dwelled. It was my understanding that there was never any room for kindness in the chaotic environments of war. The Pianist certainly breaks my pedantic understanding of war. It shows the reader that even in the most dreadful of circumstances, acts of kindness prevail. There are three instances that best categorize these paradoxes of war: the kindness amongst those being oppressed, citizens, those individuals who are not being oppressed, helping the victims and perhaps the most astonishing instance of all – the chivalry of war. These acts of kindness during moments of despair are what truly epitomize the paradox of war. The German invasion of Warsaw, Poland brought about the beginning of one of the worst mass genocides the world has ever seen. Almost immediately, the Jewish people of Warsaw were discriminated and the oppression seemed to literally come overnight. One of the most gut wrenching scenes of the novel has to be that of a young boy being halfway trapped in a wall separating the Ghettos from the rest of society. Wladyslaw Szpilman sees the boy squirming as fast as he can, trying to get through the wall before the German officer’s capture him. After watching the boy struggle and hearing the officers tugging on the boys legs, Mr. Szpilman immediately jumps in to help. The boy is beaten alive and killed with Mr.......

...saying instead of having a bunch of quotes squeezed into a paragraph. In project 2, I fixed all of the issues that you had written on my essay. I made the intro flow better and added a sentence to help explain the table. I fixed a few sentences that were worded very strangely (I don’t know why I miss those when revising). I added some examples of tweets that are usually posted on their pages in the Social Media Content section to back up my statement in the second sentence. I took your advice to move the “So what?” section into the introduction and definitely feel that it fits better there. In the conclusion, I decided to add a little more to finish the paper stronger rather than leaving one avenue for future research.

...Sampson D ENG 100 17 OCTOBER 2015 The Dangers of Text Messaging Vastly Overstated Most arguments state that text messaging is evil and will destroy language over time because most people use abbreviated words when texting. David Crystal, a professor at the University of Wales in his article “2b or Not 2b” argued that the dangers of text messaging has been vastly exaggerated. He also believed that text messaging should be seen as something good, a new dimension to language instead of viewing it as detrimental to language. These are some of the arguments he made in favor of text messaging, how the dangers of this phenomenon has been enormously exaggerated and how he organized and supported his arguments, that effects of text messaging on language is insignificant. The dangers of text messaging has been vastly overstated according to Crystal. Some people believe that text messaging is something that will cause language to decline due to abbreviated forms in it. John Humphrys argued that texters are “vandals who are doing to our language what Genghis Khan did to his neighbors 800 years ago” (qtd. in Crystal 335). To Humphrys, “texting is destroying our language: pillaging our punctuation; savaging our sentences; raping our vocabulary and must be stopped” (qtd. in Crystal 335). Also, John Sutherland of University College London wrote in his paper in 2002 that text messaging is “bleak, bald, sad shorthand. It also masks dyslexia, poor spelling and mental laziness. To......

...Women of the Depression Era Trista Winchell ENG/220 08-16-2015 Ashlei Woelk Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have grown up in a different time or era? Or how the circumstances we grow up around shape us, are personality and are qualities and morals. Think about it, how different lives would be? According to the (Forum on child and family statistics) our demographic background, family and social environment as well as our economic circumstances, physical environment and education, all play a role in shaping who we become, so it’s safe to say growing up in a different time or era, would shape our lives and personalities. This is something I see when I look at my grandparents, my grandmothers Mary and Margret. Both of these wonderful women have a lot in common in how they think, believe and see the world. All though they both grew up with a different demographic background, the same social and economic circumstances they endured, play a major part in who they became as women. Both of my grandmothers were born in the 1930’s in the middle of the great depression and times were hard, this was also a time when there were a lot of pre-conceived opinions about women and their place in society. This is no doubt why my grandmothers are such strong women. because of the time and circumstances they both grew up in, my grandmothers have a lot in common and they share a lot of the same characteristic traits, but they are their own persons with their own unique......

...Ways to fight against Welfare Fraud Joshua Eyler Eng/147 July 27, 2015 Elsie Walker Due to the overwhelming amount of welfare fraud that goes on across the United States, I’d like to share a few ways to help diminish this kind of fraud. Welfare fraud on any scale is wrong and something needs to be done about it being reduced. Some states have already put into affect mandatory drug testing, with other states to follow. This should help sift through the people who are breaking the law for one, and quite possibly committing fraud upon the welfare system. However, more could be done with random residential checks and cutting down the time they have to collect. Welfare fraud could be reduced by governing who is eligible for mandatory drug testing, home visits, and having shorter benefit collection periods. Mandatory drug testing should be implemented to be qualified for welfare assistance. There are just too many applicants who are under the influence of some kind of drug that they do not have a prescription for. (Pollack, n.d.) “Almost 20 percent of welfare recipients report recent use of some illicit drug during the year”. (para. 1) Drug testing would cut down on the applicants that use drugs on a daily basis, and also help eliminate a portion of the fraud. This is a route that all states should put into effect, and they should make penalties for those that break this rule. Another way to cut down on welfare fraud is to make unscheduled home......

Not too long ago children used to play outside and be active, nowadays children are staying at home in order to be on-line or play video games. Today’s children have a higher exposure to technology than any previous generation; technology will continue to advance in the future but at what cost? Will our children be able to function without it? Technology in the 21st century has impacted our children deeply; the use of technology has skyrocketed over the past few years, our children today encounter and utilize technology constantly at home and at school. Media devices like video games, television, computers, and cell phones play a major role in the development of 21st century child. Compared with the MP3 players, and Palm Pilots of the 1990s, the technology today has truly advanced, causing many people to become dependent on media-related devices. In my opinion it is arguably impossible to imagine kids today living their daily lives without any consumption of technology; technology is everywhere causing our children to have access via their cell phones, at home, or at school. Access to technology has hurt the modern day child as they depend on it for everything; many of our children cling to social......

...Eng 9 Bilingual language and education amongst students involves teaching academics and content of two languages in a native and secondary language with varying amounts of each language. Bilingual education is beneficial to student’s cognitive development, educational experience and functions of communication with life obstacles. However few minorities believe that Bilingual education is harmful to the upcoming generation in fear of cultural confusion. The Brain benefits from bilingual education by expanding a child’s cognitive ability to understand store and utilize another language besides their native language. Although kids in bilingual classes are not thinking much about the nature of their brains when they are in school each morning, they’re only aware of the rich and lyrical experience of learning bilingually. Studies have shown that multilingual students are nimbler, quicker, and are able to deal with obligations and resolve conflicts, resulting in an extra stash of mental sharpness of mind. Similar to Rodriguez in the “Hunger of Memory” Rodriguez experience bilingual education first hand. Rodriguez had to learn a language that barely exists in his education pattern without losing his culture, family and most importantly his parents. As a result Rodriguez had to learn how to control what he was taught as oppose to what he’s learn. Rodriguez continues to state that education was a challenging experience at first until he became fully assimilated. Although becoming......
