I suppose there are some instances where it would be useful to se the cuticle of the hair, and certainly the presence or absence of the cuticle in a hair sample found at a crime scene could have some significance in terms of recreating differences or determining how the sample came to be present (e.g. If it was pulled out during a struggle or simply broke off in the normal course of daily activities, for instance), but from what I observed it would not be as useful in identifying individuals as the hair itself. The hair itself is also more useful in differentiating between species than is the cuticle, and certainly the differences in human and non-human hair make this distinction easily possible whether or not the cuticle is present, so its need in this experiment is not entirely clear to me.
The magnifying glass I used was somewhat useful…… [Read More]
There are a number of different types of accounting systems. The Hair Emporium must choose a system based on its business situation. As a franchisor, one of the most important things to remember is that the cost of the franchise includes the systems associated with running the business. This means that they should have an accounting system in place. In addition, if they receive any fee based on revenues or net income from the franchisees, then they will need a consistent method of accounting. In addition, any lender will want a consistent and professional accounting system set up throughout the organization. It is recommended therefore that a computerized system is used. The system should be based on generally-accepted accounting principles as well. A cash accounting system is not appropriate for a professional business, and in this case it will not allow either the franchisee or franchisor to maximize…… [Read More]
hair affects social and cultural identity. The writer uses examples of fad and long standing hairstyles to portray the way those styles identify certain cultures or societies. There were two sources used to complete this paper.
Throughout history people have used various identifying markers to denote societal or cultural preferences. The role of hair as a marker to societal or cultural preferences has handled the test of time and continues to make its mark in society.
Hair has been used as a societal and cultural marker for many years. In recent history the use of hair as a marker to culture and societal standing is especially prevalent among the African-American communities (Good, 1998).
The style of a black woman's hair mirrors her soul. Her hair reflects her values, level of income, degree of education, political beliefs, mood, attitude and age range. It even reveals her genetic heritage more than any…… [Read More]

In addition to wanting people to learn more about hairstyles in Ancient Egypt, Robins also wants his readers to understand that particular values present in that society were not very different from ideas seen in our society. Hierarchy was an important concept and it is interesting to look at hairstyles from a point-of-view involving gender differences. Although women belonging to the lower classes were not necessarily able to concentrate on having the same hairstyles as aristocrats on a daily basis, they were nonetheless focused on keeping up in any way that they could.
Even with the fact that hairstyling was not considered to be an art when taking into account the Ancient Egyptian society, it is nonetheless intriguing to think about the people who designed hairstyles wore by diverse communities and the messages that they wanted to put across through their styling. Robins appears to consider that hairstyling was very…… [Read More]
Individual freedom is a critical issue for all persons. Nations are only steps away from totalitarian systems and families from authoritarian parents when individual freedoms are restricted. Individuals should have the freedom to pursue a course of action, even when that course of action is incongruous with the majority desire. The discussion surrounding the issue as it relates to gays and children raised in gay homes, or the sanctity of marriage, mask what is truly at stake for all of us in this country.
The successful preservation of freedom starts with individual freedom. Americans believe in individual freedom, not just for some Americans but for all. Any attempt to abrogate the rights of selected individuals, in the pursuit of some elusive moral dream, harms all of us. The loss of rights for one group, however small, is a loss of rights for all.
Life is a mixture of varied experiences,…… [Read More]
Hair Evidence-Advanced Forensic Science
Hair evidence has been utilized for high profile cases that include homicide and robberies with violence. The paper will highlight the real issue that surround the use of hair for evidence and evidence processing, the viability of obtaining DNA transcriptions that are admissible in the forensic evidence presentation and the guiding principles of using such crime scene evidence as hair and other bodily materials.
There are central roles that hair evidence plays in the investigations to a crime omitted and these are the reasons why many forensic investigators find hair invaluable in their process. A thorough investigation of the hair evidence can more often than not indicate the race of the subject. They can also be easily compared to each other to determine whether multiple people were at the scene or a single subject also referred to as common origin of evidence. The hair gives the…… [Read More]
Hair" "Bad Hair"
The relationship between politics and African-American hair is tenuous at best. Any researcher would be hard pressed to find another race or group of people whose hair factors into its politics. Indeed, such a notion borders on ridiculousness. It is difficult to imagine a group of people such as the Serbians, who faced extermination because of a political situation involving their race (Bowen 3), attempting to utilize their hair to any sort of political advantage. The same notion applies to African-Americans. There is no denying, however, that the hair of African-Americans has affected their regard socially throughout their tenure in the United States, and that certain hair types and textures have an enduring social meaning to this day. However, this paper will demonstrate that whatever social regard there is for the various hair types and textures of African-Americans has little impact politically, since: it produced little effect…… [Read More]
Mechanisms of Hair Curvature
Hair composition is composed primarily of structural proteins, which make up 60-95% of its composition (Barthelemy et al. 2012). These proteins include keratin intermediate filaments (KIFs) and keratin-associated proteins (KAPs) that together form a matrix held together through disulfide, hydrogen, electrostatic, and amide bonds. The nature of these bonds renders hair more or less vulnerable to environmental stressors, such as sunshine, pollutants, and hair treatments.
Direct comparisons of the three main types of keratin, hair, epidermal, and simple type, revealed that hair is comparatively cysteine-rich (trnad et al. 2011). These cysteines in turn play an important role in determining hair structure. For example, 97-98% of the cysteines in sheep wool have been shown to be involved in forming disulphide bonds. The proline content of hair KIFs is also relatively high and is believed to induce kinks in the filament, thereby facilitating disulphide bond formation.…… [Read More]
The triggers for deciding not to proceed can include everything from not being able to book at a time convenient to them, to rudeness on the part of the receptionist, or any other perceived slight that gives the customer a reason to lack confidence in the process.
This point does not have a definable moment at which feedback occurs. This is typical in many businesses - it's akin to a customer walking in and then walking out without purchase. In this case, if the customer is on the line and decides not to make an appointment, the receptionist should immediately recognize that there is a problem and attempt to recover. Since, however, the receptionist may be the problem, management needs to have some involvement at this stage of the process. I would make it a policy that any time a customer calls inquiring about an appointment, management be notified. If…… [Read More]
The hair extension industry is astonishingly lucrative, and in many ways epitomizes the global market economy. As innocent as hair extensions seem, though, the industry is besieged by several ethical conundrums that illuminate the need for corporate social responsibility. Hair also exemplifies the tenets of free market capitalism. For example, the global hair extension business depends on division of labor, on private enterprise, and on laissez faire economics policies—such as neoliberalism (Vitez, n.d.). Capitalist enterprise also means that individual business owners compete with each other, while neoliberalism provides the most unregulated, unhindered free market possible allowing supply and demand to determine all aspects of cost structuring. While laborers are frequently exploited in the capitalist free market and especially in a neoliberal globalized marketplace, the hair extension industry presents some peculiarities that ironically have the potential to benefit the underclass worldwide.
For what is likely the first time in human history,…… [Read More]
Hair transplant is the process of moving hair from the back of one’s head to the area of the head where no hair is growing. Essentially the surgeon plants the hair follicles like seeds into the scalp after making tiny incisions (Nelson, 2018). The two methods used to move hair are called slit grafts and micrografts. Slit grafts combine multiple hairs (from 4 to 10) per graft, whereas micrografts basically move one or two hairs at a time.
As Thompson (2013) points out, hair loss can stem from genetics and high levels of testosterone (male pattern baldness, for example). This is one of the biggest reasons an individual might choose to undergo this procedure—i.e., to overcome a genetic issue. Hair transplant can make some people feel better about their appearance.
The direct effect the procedure has on the integumentary system is that it will cause bleeding, scarring and…… [Read More]
Teach like your hair's on fire: The methods and madness inside room 56 by afe Esquith. Specifically it will contain a book report on the book. This book, written by a teacher with nearly 25 years experience, talks about how to make a difference in the classroom, and make a difference in children's lives. He writes about his classroom, "It's a world where character matters, hard work is respected, humility is valued, and support for one another is unconditional" (Esquith x). That is the thesis of this book, that our culture is insane, and that the right things no longer matter to society, which he is attempting to change through his teaching. He believes if you teach as if your hair is on fire and you do not know it (which happened to him in the classroom), you are moving in the right direction as a teacher, and you will…… [Read More]
Hair is also in contact with chemicals in shampoos, and any dyes, gels, sprays or other cosmetics that may be placed on the hair (11).
Since there is no standardized method for cleaning these external contaminants off of the hair prior to analysis, the potential for inaccurate results from external contamination is widespread. There is no way to tell in the laboratory if a chemical is contained within the hair, and therefore came from with in the body, or if it is on the surface of the hair and did not come from within the body (12). An enormous amount of scientific research studies have indicated that hair analysis is unreliable as a diagnostic tool in crime solving. For example, in one study, the researchers took hair from the head of a single individual and sent portions of the sample to six laboratories; the results varied widely from laboratory to…… [Read More]
aldness and thinning hair are common and the ultimate fate of almost all men and women as they age. In fact, hair loss is genetic in origin, and as we come to a greater understanding of the biology and genetics of hair loss, we are beginning to find novel solutions to this age-old "problem" of the human condition. We have come a long way from the treatments for hair loss in ancient Egypt, which used a mixture of crocodile fat and hippopotamus dung to combat baldness. Another ancient cure for baldness included eating fried leeches. Men have been attempting to treat their hair loss for over 5000 years, beginning in approximately 3500 C, when a list of treatments was passed on from generation to generation and incorporated into the medical libraries of Egyptian healers. In 1553 C, the Ebers Papyrus, discovered in Luxor, Egypt, suggested a baldness prescription of iron,…… [Read More]
obert Graves lived from 1895 to 1985, and was a novelist, poet as well as a translator of the English Language. obert Graves has been a vivacious author, and has won acclaim as an author of the accounts of the First World War, in his book called 'Good bye to all that' republished in 1957. His poetry about the First World War he was recognized as being one of the sixteen Great War poets in 1985. These poets were honoured on the slate stone that was unveiled in Westminster Abbey's Poet's Corner as an edifice respecting their contribution to the narration of the war.
Through his life span, obert Graves has worked on various aspects in literature, ranging from autobiographical accounts, to historical novels. His works also include translations of Greek mythology as well as historical novels such as King Jesus, I and the Golden Fleece. obert Graves's memoirs particularly…… [Read More]
Alopecia areata is a systemic hair loss disorder, which affects roughly around 4.7 million people in the United States alone. [NAAF]. It is characterized as an autoimmune disease that leads to either localized or complete hair loss. The disease is independent of race, gender or age specifications, and hence affected people represent a diverse group. The effects of the disease may either be permanent or reversible depending on the nature and extent of damage to the hair follicles. It is believed that both genetic as well as environmental factors have an influence in the onset of the condition. However, the pathology of the disease is yet to be ascertained concretely. Though there is no physical distress accompanying the disease the psychological devastation suffered by the affected person is debilitating. Let us have a brief overview of the different types of alopecia before we discuss in detail the possible pathophysiology and…… [Read More]

Consistency in the ay Bernice Bobs Her Hair: A Comparison of Joan Silver's Film and Fitzgerald's Original Short Story
Scott Fitzgerald's depiction of the Roaring Twenties has long been lauded as a richly detailed and highly picture of the spirit and the aesthetics of the time, with the frivolity, depravity, and humanity of the period practically leaping off of the pages he scribed. His short story "Bernice Bobs Her Hair" is no exception to this general assessment of his works, showing the attitudes, the superficiality, and the underlying emotional and social conflicts that bubble just beneath the surface of the young and moneyed in 1920s America. Joan Silver's 1976 film adaptation of the story, which remains highly faithful to Fitzgerald's text, manages to capture this spirit quite directly and completely, and from beginning to end creates both an homage to Fitzgerald and a real recognition of the characters and…… [Read More]
Beautiful Girl Combs Her Hair" by Li Ho and "Mirror" by Sylvia Plath discusses the theme of beauty uses the object mirror as a symbol to illustrate and effectively use the theme of beauty. In Li Ho's poem, he tells us of the extraordinary beauty of a woman whom me witnesses combing her hair using a 'jade comb,' and makes use of the object mirror as an accessory that the girl uses in her 'beauty ritual.' "Mirror," meanwhile, is a thought-provoking poem that tackles the issue of beauty and vanity as dictated by the society. Plath uses imagery and the object mirror to symbolize the important of beauty to an individual, and how the mirror 'mirrors' the desperation of an individual who aims to achieve beauty (in frustration and great desperation).
The similarity between the two poems is that both use imagery and the theme of beauty. Imagery was used…… [Read More]
A central element that is fostered throughout the poem is the sense of emotional intensity and passion which is suggested by images and metaphors of burning and fire. For example, who had the lure of love in my breast, what wonder if I suddenly caught fire?
The second stanza continues the theme of lost love. The woman is depicted in a golden light and idealized form, which is supported by the emotional intensity of the protagonists love for her. This stanza also follows the same pattern of increase and decrease in intensity and the shift between adoration and loss of love. This pattern continues throughout the stanzas and culminates in the final lines of the poem. It is as if the recollection and memory of the loved one intensifies the feeling of love and passion to mythical proportions.
Her way of moving was no mortal thing, but of angelic form:…… [Read More]
The salon should fit in with surrounding services. For example, a small shopping strip or mall with several types of businesses, such as a restaurant, an insurance office, a real estate office, an accountant, a doctor, dentist, or optical store, and a tanning salon would make an ideal location for a beauty shop (Constant-content.com).
If you are going to own your own shop, you need a business plan. Your plan should include short-term and long-term business goals; a financial assessment of how much the start-up costs will be and whether a business loan will be necessary; a detailed list of necessary equipment (including how much the equipment will cost); a plan for partnerships (if you intend to rent out salon booths), and a marketing/advertising strategy. For example, you might put ads in local papers and on placemats at local restaurants with a coupon offering a special deal for the first…… [Read More]
Hairstyle in Less than 10 Minutes
Females with long hair often have to engage in intensive maintenance, time and effort needed in order to successfully create a fetching hairstyle. This is definitely one of the challenges inherent in being a woman. In that sense, if one has a sudden party or event to go to, it can be challenging to execute an aesthetically pleasing hairstyle in just a few minutes. If the event is a sudden obligation, there isn't often time to wash, dry and style the hair. Thus, the ability to create a quick and elegant updo using just a few steps is definitely something which is an absolute must for all involved. In this case, the bouffant is an ideal hairstyle to know how to do: the bouffant boasts several steps which are not too simple and yet not too complex: furthermore, in an ideal fashion, there are…… [Read More]
Why are fat-soluble drugs more suitable for this type of delivery than drugs that are soluble in water?
Fat-soluble drugs are more suitable for skin diffusion than soluble drugs because they tend to be hydrophobic compounds, which facilitates their diffusion across the lipid membrane of skin cells. Water-soluble drugs are often hydrophilic and thus cannot easily diffuse through a hydrophobic milieu like the plasma membrane.
5. Which cutaneous glands are associated with hair follicles and what is their function?
The sebaceous glands are associated with hair follicles and function to secrete sebum (oil-like composition) into the follicular canal. Sebum helps to waterproof hair and skin, and it also serves to prevent cracking due to dehydration.
6. In which layer(s) of the epidermis does cell division occur?
Cell division occurs primarily in the stratum basale.
7. What is the function of the arrector pili muscles?
Arrector pili are bands of muscle…… [Read More]
Functional attitude theories hold the central notion that people have attitudes for different reasons. By understanding the different reasons that one has for an attitude and targeting these reasons can be the basis for being able to change an attitude. The basic attitude functions are:
The knowledge function of an attitude refers to the need for people to assign structure, meaning, or order to their surroundings. For instance, in studies of cognitive dissonance people need to assign order to a chaotic situation (incompatible behavior and attitude) and therefore bolster a particular attitude to do so. Advertisers have used this as strategic tactic for years when they target people who have chronic pain, depression, or some other particular condition that results in perceived disorder in their lives. Morals, ethics, and the need to find structure in ambiguous situations serve this function in much the same way. Such attitudes provide a…… [Read More]
DYNOMITE Haircuts Stage
This case study concerns the needs and objectives of a particular business known as Dynomite Haircuts. Dynomite Haircuts first opened in a college town where it was the only business of its kind in a 10-mile radius. This was ideal as it allowed the company to establish roots, gain a solid reputation and client base and begin to expand in a marked and concerted manner. Now there is a much higher level of competition which has developed over time in this area. In spite of this increased competition, the business is still performing well. However, it could be performing even better: it could still reach a higher level of competition and effectiveness necessary to bring in a higher level of revenue. The areas that need to be improved are: scheduling, supply ordering, inventory management, collecting customer information and marketing. Once these areas are improved, and these obstacles…… [Read More]
Duncombe, Stephen. 2005. The Bobbed Haired Bandit. New York: New York University Press.
Stephen Duncombe, an Associate Professor in the Department of Media, Culture and Communications at the Gallatin School of New York University, wrote a true story of a dark-haired woman in Brooklyn in January 1924. He, teaching politics of media and history wrote The Bobbed Haired Bandit to show snippets of 1924 life from the perspective of the small, dark-haired woman robber. The woman wore a fur coat with a beaded dress underneath and as she was about to pay for the eggs and took out an automatic pistol from her coat pocket to rob the grocery store worker. It was here that reader gets to see the scope of not just the story, but also the character. The character and the argument of the book shows how a woman could overcome her circumstances through daring and risky…… [Read More]

Ethics in Marketing
Ethics of Marketing
Ethics in Marketing
In order to realize themselves as socially responsible corporate entities, business organizations have to maintain a sound ethical track record in every aspect of their business (Arnold 2009). They have to formulate their business policies and strategies in such a fashion that no societal values are exploited and no human being is harmed in any way (Crane & Matten 2007). It is essential for organizations to keep themselves on the safest ethical path in their marketing, promotional, and general operational activities (Lamb, Hair, & McDaniel 2012). It cannot only save them from severe criticism by their stakeholders, but also contribute towards a sustainable future in their industry. especting the ethical values and social norms of a society helps an organization in standing on competitive grounds among its competitors and strengthening its public image (Abela & Murphy 2008).

Long ago and far away there lived a girl named Victoria. She and her poor parents lived in a cottage, in a beautiful valley. Close to them there was an enchanted forest. The girl would wake up early in the morning and go into the forest to fetch the wood for the fire. She would gather mushrooms and pick flowers and sing, both because she loved to sing but also because she was afraid of those woods. She had heard of the mean ogres who lived deep in the forest and she hoped she would never have to face them.
One day, her mother gave her a bag with some beautiful fabric she had woven from the finest wool thread she could find to bring to the king and queen who were living at the castle, on the other side of the forest. She knew she would have to…… [Read More]
The face of this second presence has been painted in a lighter nuance and his uncombed hair clearly suggests an inferior position on the social ladder. The boy's eyesight is somewhat directed towards the copy of the periodical in the woman's hand and his mouth is open, suggesting his amazement upon gazing at the newspaper.
Finally, the third presence in La evue Blanche is a large shadow, which has been interpreted for years as an angry, child, another woman or other features. The shadow is painted in the same color as the outfit of the woman and the urchin, blurring the contours even more. Against the faces of the two distinguishable characters and the light colored background, the single white presence in the painting is the copy of the periodical held in the woman's hand. This could imply that the periodical is aimed to shad light in a world of…… [Read More]
Michigan vs. Tyler, the Supreme Court decided that "fire fighters, and/or police and arson investigators, may seize arson evidence at a fire without warrant or consent, on the basis of exigent circumstances and/or plain view"
This may only occur during the extinguishing operations or immediately after, otherwise a warrant or the owner's consent is necessary. This came as a response to an accusation of "conspiracy to burn real property," where the prosecutors had collected and used evidence of numerous days after the firefighting operations. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the defendant, as evidence was collected without warrant in the subsequent days.
I think the process used by a gas chromatograph (heating, etc.) is not appropriate for separating sand granules and the gas chromatograph cannot identify sand grains as a substance. In my opinion, something like filtration should have been used to separate sand from the rest of the…… [Read More]
The Portrait of Joseph Roulin by Vincent Van Gogh is Van Gogh's representation of his friend and idol, Joseph Roulin. The portrait is a drawing, rendered in brown ink and black chalk. While impressionistic, the portrait is also realistic- conveying an actual resemblance to a person. This portrait was significant because it was painted during Van Gogh's period in Arles, France. While productive in Arles, Van Gogh was also relatively isolated, and considered Roulin one of his dearest friends. This is interesting because Roulin is not depicted in a friendly manner, but appears severe and somewhat imposing. This may be because Van Gogh believed Roulin was an impressive and was man, as well as a dear friend. Therefore, his choice of medium may have been made in order to convey wisdom, rather than friendliness.

The last line of "The White Porch" indicates that the narrator deliberately and delightfully subverts tradition and norms by "smuggling" her lover into the bedroom under the cover of shadows.
Still, the narrator never notes discontent. She views her daily chores as "luxury," and "thoughtfully" shucks beans from their shells after her shower. Lingering on the white porch of the family home, the narrator is aware of being weighted down by family obligations but does not resent those traditions either. For example, she describes her hair as a "weight," but appreciates the hours of time she has before her lover steals in after dusk. The slow passage of time throughout the day parallels the pace of passionate sex and courtship too: in the second, most sensually-worded stanza the narrator describes "this slow arousal" with delightful imagery including an orange sponge cake rising in the oven, soon to be drenched in…… [Read More]
The basic story of "The Most Dangerous Game," both the short story and the 1932 film are about a big game hunter who finds himself at the mercy of an even more dedicated hunter than himself, the mad Cossack General Zaroff who chases and kills human beings for sport. In transferring the story from print to film, the screenwriters, producers, directors, and actors make certain changes to the story in order to heighten action or in some way appeal to their audience which the story in and of itself does not allow. Sometimes such changes improve the story, but in many cases, the changes damage the integrity and in this case the suspense of the story. In the film version of Zaroff, the choices of the filmmakers tend to create an intense, but far less frightening characterization of an obsessed hunter willing to destroy anything and anyone for…… [Read More]
One cannot build the right sort of house -- the houses are not really adequate, "Blinds, shutter, curtains, awnings, were all closed and drawn to keep out the star. Grant it but a chink or keyhole, and it shot in like a white-hot arrow." The stare here is the metonymic device -- we assume it is stranger, the outside vs. The inside, but for some reason, it is also the authority involved, and one that is able to ensure adequacy. In a similar vein, the "churches were freest from it," but they offer only an homage' to safety, and use their power to shut people out from the light that "made the eyes ache" and had been inhumanly oppressive. The prison, though, is "so repulsive a place that even the obtrusive star blinked at it and left it to such refuse of reflected light as could find." The stare is…… [Read More]
The Lord will lead one to safety always. One can simply believe in something higher to get the meaning of this; it doesn't have to be Jesus. Psalm 127, contrarily is confusing because it states that unless the Lord builds the house, it is built in vain. This seems to be more literal, but I do get the idea. Unless the people building the house are doing it with the love of the Lord in their hearts, or building it for him, then what is the point?
Didactic poetry can be quite comforting as seen in Psalm 23 or it can be much too literal and seen as both confusing and condescending. Psalm 127 isn't very instructive spiritually speaking, unlike Psalm 23.
Updated Proverb: A broken toe can hurt, but a broken heart can kill.

However, that was not an option, and it points to the rigidity of the corporation and its rules.
Harrah's defense of their policy is utilitarian in its outlook and its purpose. It stresses utility (beauty) over values or concerns of personal beliefs and personal privacy. A Harrah's spokesman for the "Personal Best" program noted, "Harrah's customers, people who are loyal to the Harrah's brand name, expect a certain quality of product, a certain quality hotel room, quality of food, and, yes, a certain quality in the appearance of the people who are serving them food and beverages'" (Chmela). It seems this stance is both rigid and extremely discriminatory against female employees, where a different appearance level is required. The policy does not require male beverage employees to wear makeup or style their hair, and it does not allow any flexibility in the policy. Harrah's only purpose is to create a…… [Read More]
The price of a commodity or service is determined by evaluating how value is fashioned with regards to the customer segments in the market. The management of the organization needs to ensure that the pricing of the product is optimum to guarantee sufficient number of customers thus generate adequate profit. Strategic pricing is one of the elements of marketing mix that a producer needs focus. Product pricing is related to product positioning as different customers may be willing to pay different prices for the same product. Pricing strategy also affect the channels selected by the producer to penetrate the market, and the promotion strategy to be used to create awareness in the competitive market.
Pride determination has no specific formula although several factors need to be considered so as to formulate at a favorable price. One such factor is developing a marketing strategy that will evaluate segmentation, target market…… [Read More]

Pornification of Women in Western Media
The Pornification of Women in Mainstream Western Media
Sexuality is a normal part of life for every male and female. egardless of where he or she lives, or even what age a person is, sex will be a need. It is a known biological fact. However, the Western media has been blamed to play a large role in exacerbating the need. Back in 1811, a novel published by Jane Austin known as Sense and Sensibility mentioned the word chaperon. It was stated that back then a young woman and young man were never left alone. Even if they were left alone, they were left in the presence of a chaperone. (Poisoned by Porn; It's" 2010, 14) why was this the case? The answer to that lies in that sex is a need for every man or woman born into this world. It was back…… [Read More]
Le Viol (rape) by surrealist painter Rene Magritte. The painting was done in 1934 and it was clearly meant to shock the viewer as it is a repulsive representation of a woman's face. However, instead of eyes she has breasts, instead of a mouth she has pubic hair that one assumes is covering a vagina, and instead of a nose Magritte has placed a human belly button in that spot.
There are many possible suggestions that an alert observer could present in terms of what the artist had in mind when he created this piece (it was first a drawing and later Magritte produced an oil on canvas painting from the drawing). One idea that has value is that Magritte was not-so-subtly protesting against rape. He presented a woman's face as her anatomy, as though perhaps it would be her destiny to have her breasts and her vagina be a…… [Read More]
There is the feeling that Rushdie is toying with the concept of freedom of speech in this story as well as destroying the concept of the East as mysterious. Rushdie uses English to tell his story, but he incorporates the Indian oral tradition without any kind of chronological structure to the story. He deconstruct the binary opposition of East and est. He himself is between the Orient and the Occident and he chooses to use both structures, combining Britain and India (Buran 10).
The factors of race and gender complicate the relations of class in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, ole Soyinka's "Telephone Conversation," and Jean Rhys "Let Them Call It Jazz" in various ways. In Heart of Darkness, the story is centered on the typical male experience, which tends to alienate the female reader from the very "mannish" story. There is some speculation that Marlow and Kurtz's sexist views…… [Read More]
Do you disagree with any of Pope's opinions or pronouncements in the Heroic Couplets or "An Essay on Man"?
Pope is critical of individuals who "cry, if man's unhappy, God's unjust," suggesting that the unhappiest people are people who blame God, rather than themselves for all of their troubles, or who curse God because their lives are imperfect. The need to accept life's imperfections while still working to enact positive changes within the limitations of humanity is a positive message still relevant for people today.

Does the epic, "The Rape of the Lock" apply in any way to society today? Identify two passages that could serve as satiric commentaries on people's behavior today. Your answer should discuss both…… [Read More]
4 in the background, there is what appears to be a huge gray shadow which some viewers of this poster have seen as the "rear view of a man wearing a top hat with collar upraised" while he looks at a wall of flyers or advertisements for other French magazines like "La Revue lanche." 5 it is pretty easy to see the top of the black hat, but the gray area might be his cape flapping in the breeze along the busy Paris street. The last thing about this poster is the white lettering which runs across the bottom. These letters appear to have been done like handwriting because of their wobbly shape. Overall, this poster is two-dimensional, very flat and decorative and onnard is definitely referring here to "Japanese woodcut prints where flat areas of plain color and pattern deny the illusion of space." 6 Also, this poster tells…… [Read More]
Christy Turlington explains to Elle magazine... "Advertising is so manipulative," she says. "There's not one picture in magazines today that's not airbrushed."… "It's funny," Turlington continues. "hen women see pictures of models in fashion magazines and say, 'I can never look like that,' what they don't realize is that no one can look that good without the help of a computer." (Hilary 13)
That's right, the beautiful Turlington, a woman that can be said as fitting the standard ideal of American beauty, admits that it is unachievable even for her. hy? Because even she admits that she has been touched up. In a similar exercise, we can only imagine the remarkable steadfastness this act must have taken, but it shows that there is a realization that this American image is unattainable (Domar 23).

The time of the story was a disturbing part of Canada's history. The use of Residential Schools actually predates Canada's existence as a country (meaning before Confederation in 1867, and the system served as a means of containment and control if the Indian population. As the Europeans acted out the myth of the New orld as an undiscovered and undeveloped land, the existence of the Aboriginal peoples complicated the myth and challenged the government that was instituted.

Enhancement Photos Magazines Ads - Artful Ad nspiring Dishonest & Harmful
Fashion has been on people's minds since time immemorial. Whether man, woman, child or elderly, individuals have sought to express themselves through how they dressed, one more conservative, the other extravagant and glamorous. Nowadays, it's quite a technique to skillfully attempt to dress people when being dressed sometimes implies having no clothing whatsoever. This effect is accurately illustrated in Picture 1 in which a marrying couple seem to be wearing, what looks like a uniform for the man, and a dressing gown for the woman. While one does notice the boxer shorts on the man and the extension of a real dress on the woman, the effect is nevertheless substantial. Deeply rooted in ritualized tribalists cultures, body painting nowadays stands for various purposes: it has come to represent either a form of extravaganza, or means by which people choose…… [Read More]
Dear Senora Ines,
It has been over a decade since we last spoke, and although I have grown from an impressionable child to a confident woman, I find myself thinking about you more often than I would like. Luciana and I drifted apart during high school, as children tend to do, and that has never bothered me a bit, but there is simply something about my last experience with you that has never left my mind in all these years. You may be asking yourself right about now, "Who is this person?" And I wouldn't blame you in the slightest, as you never really knew who my mother and I were anyway.
My name is Rosaura, and my mother Herminia worked as a maid for your estate during my childhood. I don't suppose that would ring any bells either, as you couldn't even be bothered to attend her…… [Read More]
Welcoming the Metro Sexual Male and Saying Goodbye to the "Perfect" Woman
Beauty has always been emphasized in popular culture. But currents are pulling in different directions today as the myth of women's perfection is heightened by the exposure of photoshopped pictorials and as female comics like Lena Dunham take the "sexy" out of Sex and the City by portraying realistic womanhood with all its fat, wrinkles, spots and imperfections. As for men, the once rugged masculinity of the John Wayne type has given over to the Bradley Cooper/Tim Gunn type of well-groomed "metro sexuality." In one sense, it appears that the idea of woman as goddess is being, to an extent, displaced (or at least rivaled) by the idea of man as Adonis. In short, beauty -- in terms of manicured nails, good skin, and full-bodied hair -- is no longer just for women.
Evidence for this stunning claim…… [Read More]

The documentary The Beauty Exchange displays the life of typical Czech women in the 21st century struggling with the image of beauty. Every person is shaped by the world around them and the basis for what a woman should look like has been instilled in society through magazines, TV, movies, advertisements, celebrities. The challenges that women are constantly facing are perfect skin, gorgeous hair, flawless make-up, good figure, fashionable style and these things have grown to be such an important part of today's society.
One would think that it was women who determined fashion trends, since they are the ones who spend so much money and effort looking good when each one comes out. Yet, this current documentary shows that is not exactly the truth. In fact, women do not play as large of a part as one may think in the process of creating and popularizing fashion…… [Read More]
" Although she had very little food for herself, she always had a great deal to give to others. She looked like a grandmother from an old-fashioned movie, although I couldn't give Marie a fairytale ending, only a ramp and a mended, but still-broken shack.
Marie would stay with us as we worked, anxious to be of help in any way that she could: she always offered us a handkerchief for our brows or a cold drink when we needed those things the most. I knew that living without air conditioning was normal for her, and so I tried to will myself not to care. She chatted with us, and she often told me how much I reminded her of her son, now grown, who lived far away.
Every day a few minutes before eleven, she would excuse herself. In the stillness of the heat, I would hear the phone…… [Read More]
Most fungi can also reproduce through sexual reproduction both with the same organism mixing gametes and with reproduction between two separate organisms. The cells of many fungi are primarily copies of each other, without differentiation of organs (except in the fruiting sections of the organism, such as the mushrooms and molds typically visible and known to humans).
Fungi are considered a separate kingdom for several reasons. They are different from plants in their inability to produce energy from sunlight, and in fact most grow in dark places. Unlike animals and many protozoa, they cannot move; unlike most protozoa, they exist almost entirely as multicellular and colonial organisms.
The various classifications of fungi are determined based on their method(s) of reproduction. Zygomycota produce both asexual and sexual spores, while Basidiomycota rarely produce asexually and produce a different type of sexual spore. Ascomycota produce asexual spores, and can also grow…… [Read More]

SOCIOLOGICAL TERMS (Terms in Italics)
Varsity Jackets, Subcultures, and the Function of Sports in Society
In sociological terms, the varsity letter jackets worn by the students would be considered status symbols because they have specific social connotations that correspond to achievements that are valued by the group. They represent group identity in high school based on membership in sports teams. In many cases, sports teams also feature subcultures in which group norms and values are used by members of the group to maintain a degree of exclusivity to membership in their group as well; in the high school setting, these would typically be referred to as cliques.
In general, competitive sports can be viewed from the structural-functional sociological approach or from the symbolic-interaction approach. In the former, sports would be viewed primarily in connection with their functions, such as a means through which participants maintain physical fitness or pursue enjoyment;…… [Read More]
loss are common concepts in poetry that have been explored by men and women alike, across time and across cultural boundaries. Two such poets are Louise Labe, a French, Renaissance poet and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, a New Spanish nun and Baroque poet. In Sonnet 23 by Labe and Sonnet 165 by Cruz, issues of love, loss, and impermanence are explored through imagery and tone.
In Sonnet 23, Labe attempts to understand why her lover no longer finds her attractive or no longer wants to have a relationship with her. Labe asks, "What good is it to me if long ago you/eloquently praised my golden hair, compared to my eyes and beauty to the flare/of two suns where, you say, love bent the bow, sending the darts that needled you with grief?" In the sonnet, the narrator claims that she was once compared to the sun, which is…… [Read More]
Spade and Philip Marlowe comparison
Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe
Although Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe have been portrayed by Humphrey Bogart in the cinematic versions of The Maltese Falcon and The Big Sleep, respectively, each portrayal is a polar opposite of the other. Raymond Chandler has described Philip Marlowe as "a white knight in a trench coat," whereas Dashiell Hammett described Sam Spade as "a blond Satan" in The Maltese Falcon. In each respective novel and film, Spade and Marlowe embody the character traits that were given to them by Chandler and Hammett.
In The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler, Philip Marlowe is embodies character traits that allow him to act like a "white knight in a trench coat." From the beginning of the novel, Marlowe has qualities that are very similar to that of a knight. For example, Marlowe states, "I was neat, clean, shaved and sober, and…… [Read More]
