...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......

...Shalonda Mitchell Professor: Dr. Paul Hackman ENG 215 Research and Writing January 15, 2013 My first experience with persuasive writing was in the fifth grade. 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.......

...British Lit / Test Two Review Essay Questions 1. The genre of “The Fairie Queen” is a romantic epic. Epic poetry is the highest form of poetry; long and episodic. It is a narrative that contains many adventures, a central character, journey to hell, gods and goddesses, and it starts in the middle (in medias res). The Fairie Queen is allegorical of the Protestant Reformation. It contains many biblical allusions supporting the Protestant faith and criticizing Catholicism. It is written in Spenserian stanza, stanzas of nine iambic lines; the first eight are pentameters and the ninth is hexameter with the rhyme scheme ababbcbcc. 2. The term Renaissance translates into “rebirth”. This was a great revival of art, literature, and learning in Europe; marking the transition from the medieval to the modern world. The Renaissance began in Europe around 1390; this was around the same time of the Canterbury Tales. The Renaissance did not begin in England until1485. It was so late coming to England because of the civil war due to the “power struggle” between the House of York and the House of Lancaster. This Civil War was called the War of the Roses. The two houses fought until they killed each other off and in 1485, King Henry took crown and this was the beginning of the Tudor Dynasty. England finally had a level of peace allowing its people to acknowledge and then take part in this renewal of life, vigor, and interest. 3. The difference in doctrine between......

...Week 3 Assignment 1.1 \\Eng 115 The author of the essay “Facing Poverty with a Rich Girl’s Habits” is Suki Kim. In the essay, Kim wants to explain her struggles. 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...

Lit Device

...Kitty Liu Mrs. Estrada World Lit., Per. 3 11 December 2013 Growing Up In the Environment Authors often use literary devices to make their writings more attractive. Literary devices always help readers have deeper understandings of characters and have better connections to them. Sandra Cisneros, the author of The House on Mange Street, also choses to use literary devices to give readers a clear picture of her character—Esperanza. Literary devices that she uses make this novel more infectious. Sandra Cisneros uses metaphor to emphasize the character’s struggle with growing up and employs personification to describe the character’s connection to their environments. Cisneros uses metaphor to highlight Esperanza’s struggle with growing up. Esperanza has a little sister named Nenny. As an older sister, she has the responsibility to take care of Nenny and make sure she does not play with bad children in the neighborhood. Esperanza does not have any friends her own age. She feels lonely and states, “Until then I am a red balloon, a balloon tied to an anchor” (Cisneros 9). By describing Esperanza as a red balloon, Cisneros shows the character’s attitude about growing up. She wants to socialize with girls who she can easily relate to. Cisneros shows that Esperanza does not have the freedom like a balloon. The metaphor Cisneros uses demonstrates that Esperanza’s responsibility with her family is an anchor tying her down. It stops her from going outside with friends and feeling......

...English Lit- Moon on the Tides Relationship Cluster Poems Booklet Ghazal Context Mimi Khalvati was born in Tehran and grew up on the Isle of Wight where she went to boarding school. She started to write poetry when she was looking after her children. She published her first collection in 1991 and she has been shortlisted for the TS Eliot poetry prize. A "ghazal" is an ancient Persian form of poetry, similar to a sonnet in that it is often part of a larger collection or sequence of poems. Khalvati's poem mentions a famous writer of ghazals called Rumi, who wrote a sequence to his close friend and spiritual inspiration Shamsuddin. Ghazals are often concerned with love and longing. Structure and language Structure Like traditional ghazals, this poem is made up of a sequence of two-line stanzas (or 'couplets'). The two lines of the couplets do not rhyme but the end of each couplet does, partly through the repetition of the word "me". Language Ghazal makes extensive use of metaphors to explore the relationship between the speaker and the one they love. Many of the metaphors present pairs of items or objects that complement each other, reflecting the way in which the speaker sees the relationship. In the second stanza the speaker describes the two sides of a relationship being like the "rhyme" and "refrain" (a repeated section of a poem, like a chorus). This metaphor suggests a sense of the two lovers being part of a larger whole. It also connects the two through...

Computers are capable of almost anything now a days and this power is taken great advantage of by our society. Computers make communication very easy and accessible to everyone. Any time in the day access to a computer and the internet is available. The textbook references the ability to bank online, which saves a lot of time for citizens who would normally have to drive to a bank and wait in line. These tasks can be done in minutes or less with computers. The textbook also references going to school online, shopping online, designing products and being able to test them with software capable of using physics. The pros are increasing in number every day because we advance so much in computers. Almost everything about a computer is a positive thing because they make tasks in daily life so much easier. Although there are so many positive things about computers there are a few cons that come along with those. There are security risks within networks and people attempt to hack into information that does not belong to them and steal it.

...When looking for a truly subjective author, I was able to find a private publication based out of New Braunfels, Texas that is known to regularly share their personal opinions in every publication. On February 16, the NB Citizen released the article “Breaking News: McGonigal Turns Himself In, Released.” The reporter, Mike Reynolds made sure to share his point of view throughout the article, hoping to influence the thoughts of individuals in the small town of New Braunfels. This has been a continued story based off of the activities of the individuals in the chamber of commerce that this particular publication finds to be out of line. This has been a longstanding fight between the two parties and will not be ending any time soon. Reynolds notes, “McGonigal is a victim of a political witch hunt in retaliation for McGonigal’s outspoken criticism of New Braunfels’ city government.” (Reynolds, 2012) Through his personal ties with McGonigal, Reynolds continually jumps to the aid of McGonigal in order to protect his friends reputation. As the reader explores more of the details behind this article, information pours off of the page, showing a much deeper story than what is portrayed through the pages of this report. Through this continued “protection” of a friend, the authors credibility is greatly diminished and left to be based on opinion instead of factual writing. As a future teacher, this could become an issue when it comes to my own level of subjectivity. I can still look......

...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......

Butterfly: a Struggle from Gender Identity to Political Balance Long before Song Liling made her debut as M. Butterfly on stage, there was a woman called Cho-cho-san, playing Madama Butterfly with the fullest of her life. M. Butterfly’s counterpart Madama Butterfly presents readers Cho-cho-san, a pitiful and submissive Oriental Butterfly. Cho-cho-san’s character traits fit in almost every single aspect of the ideal of Oriental women, for instance, Cho-cho-san is a geisha, an exotic representation of Japanese women in the eyes of westerners, Cho-cho-san eventually dies of seppuku, which is the Japanese ritual suicide by disembowelment, and her ultimate sacrifice of her everything from her religion to her very life. The attributes of Cho-cho-san are not exclusive to this character only but imposed on all Asian women. The western presupposition of some certain fixed and bounded Asian attributes defines the identity of Asian women and thus, creates an image of the sacrificial and submissive Oriental women. Moreover, the historical backgrounds of Hwang’s Butterfly and Puccini’s Butterfly are, in fact, the extension of gender tension to international power struggle. Cho-cho-san’s love story happens in the Meiji Period in which Japan first opened its door to foreigners; while Gallimard and Song Liling begins having an affair in the 1960s, in the......
