Improving on-the-job training and streamlining standardized procedures might be a more effective way to meet company objectives.

Q3. What legal ramifications, if any, should Sam have considered?

Furthermore, Sam's company could be facing serious legal problems, as a result of needlessly increasing educational requirements for readers. In the "landmark Griggs v. Duke Power Co. case of 1971, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled against Duke's requirement of high school diplomas or IQ tests for those applying for unskilled jobs" (Affirmative action, 2009, Small business encyclopedia). If Sam's decision has a 'disparate impact' and makes it more difficult for members of historically-discriminated against groups to secure jobs as meter readers, there could be costly litigation and bad publicity for the company.

Case Study Exploring a Municipal WiFi Network

Words: 1037 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97270742

Municipal WiFi network

Potential to spark investment

Getting a high-speed connection for a business can be quite costly and most businesses prefer to stay without an internet connection. With a municipal WiFi network, businesses have the potential to access the internet at low cost and without having to make huge initial investments (Ylipulli, Suopajarvi, Ojala, Kostakos, & Kukka, 2014). The marina has the potential to attract many investors and other businesses, but since the area is located far from the city, many people opt to relocate their businesses to the city. The lack of an affordable internet connection has also limited businesses. With a municipal WiFi in place, there is a potential for businesses to open new offices in the downtown area, which would boost the area's development. Investors like to see that an area is developing before they can put in their money, and with the municipal WiFi in…… [Read More]

Night the Crystals Broke

Write where you got inspiration from?

The inspiration from this poem comes from my grandmother and her family, who lived through the pogroms and just before the Nazis took over Hungary. The title refers to the Kristallnacht, the event in which the Nazis burned synagogues and their religious items, and broke the windows. They also broke the windows of the local businesses. This poem also refers to the journey that was scary and arduous, over the Atlantic in the ship to Ellis Island. The statue at the end of the poem is the Statue of Liberty, which welcomed the "poor" and "hungry" masses, like my grandmother's people.

Organizational Behavior and People Management

Motivating long-term company employees

Competitive remuneration cannot be used in isolation to motivate employees of a company that is focusing on its long time future. Money, an extrinsic motivation, is believed to extinguish intrinsic motivation like achievement motivation. However, money can be used as an indicator of success for various motives. To make long time company employees develop interest in the company's long-term future, some elements of innovation have to be integrated. As the CEO of the company I would initiate college scholarship schemes for veteran employees who may be having interest in furthering their education to be at par with the company's technological advances. College scholarship programs can also be extended to these employees' grandchildren because many grandparents still help with college bills. Long-term employees can also be given the first choice in vacation and shift-schedule request (Sixel, 2011).

Most individuals fail to appreciate life to the fullest because they concentrate on being remembered as some of the greatest humans who ever lives. This makes it difficult for them to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, considering that they waste most of their time trying to put across ideas that are appealing to the masses. While many did not manage to produce ideas that survived more than them, others succeeded and actually produced thinking that remained in society for a long period of time consequent to their death.

Creativity is generally regarded as one of the most important concepts in society, considering that it generally induces intense feelings in individuals. It is responsible for progress and for the fact that humanity managed to produce a series of ideas that dominated society's thinking through time.

Unfair

Robert Francis was an American poet whose work is reminiscent of Robert Francis, his mentor. Francis' writing has often compared to other writers such as Frost, Emily Dickinson, and Henry David Thoreau. Although Francis's work has frequently been neglected and is "often excluded from major anthologies of American poetry," those that have read his work have praised him and his writing. In "Fair and Unfair," Francis comments on balance in nature and in society. Like Frost, Francis contends nature has the ability to provide guidance if only man is smart enough to observe it. In "Fair and Unfair," Francis is able to find balance through what is written and how it is written.

The poem is told from a first person, omniscient perspective and the narrator appears to be addressing the general public; it appears as though the narrator seeks to bring attention to how nature has become disregarded…… [Read More]

Heard a Fly Buzz When

Words: 599 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 13072727

The fly is a gruesome image because flies gather around decaying corpses. However, while this image is startling, it is still shocking that the poet is not more in shock of dying, of being dead, or witnessing just a fly upon her death.

The poem consists of four stanzas, which include slant rhymes on the second and fourth lines. The lines alternate between six and eight syllables. Dashes in the poem force the reader to slow down and take time to read each phrase. The tone of the poem is lyrical but the message of it is somber. Dickinson uses a simile in the poem In the line, "The Stillness in the Room / as like the Stillness in the Air" (2-3). This image is important because it reveals the poet's notion that there is nothing special that awaits us after death. The still air is a stark contrast to…… [Read More]

hen it is read aloud, however, the reader understands that the simple rhyme scheme adds a great deal to the poem. Because it is written in such a simple, singsong rhyme scheme, which seems in appropriate, the reader can quickly comprehend that this disconnect is, most likely, intentional. Presenting a poem about the sadness of people in London in a childlike, singsong fashion evokes an irony that can only be understood when the piece is read audibly. Through this, the author seems to imply that London is not innocent, that she has been scarred, and even the most innocent of children's songs must now reflect that fact. hen John Stallworthy recites, however, the poem is not read with an overemphasis unstressed/stressed meter, instead further emphasizing the connection among the different images. hile the meter is still there, and can be detected, Stallworthy reads the poem more like a string of…… [Read More]

The third quatrain is entirely regular, as is the first line of the closing couplet, but the final line of the poem has an inverted first foot that continues the pattern of breaking up the structure of the poem and the meter at key moments. The final couplet reads: "For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds; / Lilies that fester, smell far worse than weeds" (lines 13-4). Continuing the same interpretation of the poem as self-referential that has heretofore been used, this line suggests that the poem and even the poet's skill could be turned sour by using used for ill purposes (such as more directly accusing the perceived cause of the poet's displeasure), and the inverted first foot of the second line of the couplet again…… [Read More]

In the table above, in the first measurement taken at 3:10pm, the value of d is 55.7 mm, while l is 5,998 mm. Substituting these values to the derived formula for D, which is D = (d/l) L, we get D = (55.7mm/5,998mm)(150,000,000km), or D = 1,392,964.32km. For the second measurement taken at 3:20pm, the value of d is 56.25mm, while l is 6,000mm. By substitution, D = (56.25mm/6,000mm)(150,000,000km), or D = 1,406,250km. For the last measurement taken at 3:30pm, the value of d is 56.6mm, while l is 6,003mm. By substitution again, we get D = (56.6mm/6,003mm)(150,000,000km), or D = 1,414,292.85km.

Alfred Lord Tennyson Two Poems

The mood is not unlike the effect of the lotus, being a state of languor. The landscape is lush and detailed, the sort of landscape that would be appealing on its own and that visitors would not want to leave for its own sake.

Such description begins as the ship apperoaches the land and Ulysses tells his men to have courage:

In the afternoon they came unto a land

In which it seemed always afternoon.

All round the coast the languid air did swoon,

Breathing like one that hath a weary dream.

Full-faced above the valley stood the moon;

And, like a downward smoke, the slender stream

Along the cliff to fall and pause and fall did seem. (lines 3-9)

Tennyson says this is "A land of streams!" (line 10) and describes those streams and their effects in some detail. After making the appeal of the land clear, Tennyson notes…… [Read More]

Papa's Waltz by Theodore Roethke

These are far different ways of symbolizing similar coping skills, but they do have many things in common. Both poems use symbolism to mean more to the reader, and they make the reader think about their own life, too. They do this by painting vivid word pictures.

Imagery in these poems is very important in getting the details across. Frost uses the peaceful image of a snowy wood to contrast with the narrator's clearly busy life. Frost writes, "He will not see me stopping here / To watch his woods fill up with snow" (Frost). The reader can almost see the image of the woods at dusk, and the silent falling flakes of snow. Who would not want to linger there? oethke's poem also uses vivid imagery to make the poem stick in the mind of the reader. He writes, "The hand that held my wrist / Was battered on…… [Read More]

message of the poem. This narrative poem follows one, dynamic event - the death of a boy using a saw to cut wood. The poem does not have rhyming lines; it is simply a block of text that narrates one single and very important event. It begins very quietly, and seems to be one of Frost's poems that celebrate nature and American life, but the end is far more disturbing and tragic. Frost may have written the poem to show how life is fleeting, and everything can change in a split second.

The content of this poem is quintessential obert Frost. It opens with fine imagery of the New England natural world that immediately gives the setting and tone of the poem. It reads somewhat like a Normal ockwell painting, with a perfect setting, close-knit family, and chores consuming their daily lives.

Milau Viaduct Stepping Out on

To put this in better perspective, the average driveway requires between six and seven meters of concrete, meaning there is well over twelve-thousand driveways' worth of concrete stretching out for two-and-a-half kilometers over the valley of the iver Tarn, at times higher than the Eiffel Tower and most of the buildings in New York City (BridgePros 2010). All of this material went to good use, creating not only the tallest vehicle bridge in the world, but also one of the safest and most assuredly long-lasting (BridgePros 2010).

Yet despite the football-stadium's worth of concrete and steel somehow suspended in the skyline of southern France, there is a tremendous and awe-inspiring beauty to the Milau viaduct bridge that defies the massive scale of the project.

Shakespeare's Sonnet 138 the Sonnet

Words: 933 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 85830382



The rhyme scheme of this sonnet follows Shakespeare's usual structure, wherein the quatrains all have an independent alternating rhyme (ABAB CDCD EFEF), and the final two lines form an heroic couplet (GG). This adds to the feeling of receiving discrete steps of an argument, and enhances the divisions of the versification. There is also a noticeable prevalence of "l's and "s's in the poem, particularly in the first and third quatrains. these sounds make up the basics of the word "lies," which is itself used as a rhyme and is repeated in the poem, and which forms one of the major themes of the sonnet. In this way, the alliteration subconsciously reinforces the meaning and feel of the poem. There are also instances of repeated words, such as "love" in the lines "O love's best habit is in seeming trust, / and age in love, loves not to have..." (lines…… [Read More]

The effect enhances the tone and rhythm of the poem, which is quite differently experienced when reading from print.

Reading the poem visually also assists with content and meaning. Listening to Stallworthy is much more of a purely musical experience, a lot like listening to a song but ignoring the lyrics. The lyrics and the vocal character of the singer are two separate things. Likewise, Blake's words and how the words sound are also two very different things. Both aspects of the poetry are meaningful and integral to a thorough understanding of the poem. Reading the poem in print offers much more of an opportunity to linger and spend time with individual words, phrases, and patterns of words.

My Father's Love Letters

Father's Love Letters

Poetry is unique in literary art in that it can portray any emotion and any tone. Even in a limited space, more emotion and meaning can be conveyed in a few poetic lines than some authors can convey in hundreds of pages. Yusef Komunyakaa's sad and depressing poem "My Father's Love Letters" is a prime example of the potential emotional strength that can be shown in a few lines. In Komunyakaa's fairly short piece, the young narrator of the poem explains to the reader about how his or her father tries to write a weekly series of love letters to a woman who has gone away, the child's mother. This particular poem is a type of narrative which functions to tell a story as well as to perform within the framework of a traditional poem, although it does not have either a uniform meter or any rhyming…… [Read More]

Although the Murray-Darling River covers only about 14% of Australia's irrigated land, 50% of Australia's sheep and 25% of Australia's cattle rely on this source. Also, 40% of the nation's rice crop and 80% of its canned fruit product relies on the Murray-Darling River Complex. In all, three-quarters of Australia's water comes from the Murray-Darling River (Hussainy, p. 205).

Of course there are conflicts when so much is at stake. For one, the river carries about 2.5 tons of sale into South Australia "every minute," Hussainy writes. Inflows of saline groundwater are attributable to the problem -- and also, the removal of "native vegetation" and irrigation causes the salt to become a problem. hen the native vegetation is replace with shallow rooted crops, it is bad ecologically.

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.

William Wadsworth. The writer attempts to analyze the poet's technique and style and discuss the use of emotions within those works. There were three sources used to complete this paper.

Throughout history authors of literature have used their works to fill their readers with emotions. Poets have been especially good at making the reader feel things that they might otherwise not have felt before reading the work. William Wordsworth is considered one of the most prolific and classic poets in history. His works cover topics of wide range and there are over 900 poems that flowed from his heart to the reader within his life. Many of his works are strong examples of his ability to show emotion in his speakers. The poet is well-known for his ability to reproduce emotion in his reader through the use of diction, rhythm, detail, apostrophe, and imagery. The Lucy poems, The Thorn and…… [Read More]

A Vonnegut theme, however, is often hard to miss; especially since part of Vonnegut's style placed the author in a position where many readers could palpably feel him throughout the novel. Vonnegut seems to read alongside the reader and assist him; he seems to teach and guide -- gently -- as well as write. As such, Vonnegut helped re-define what high art, and the novel specifically, could be:

Irving, who went on to write "The World According to Garp" and "The Cider House Rules," remembered Vonnegut as a self-effacing presence who "didn't have an agenda about what 'the novel' should be." Vonnegut also appreciated that you didn't have to be in the classroom to get your work done (MSNC, 2007).

South Park postmodernism seems to be endemic to recent generations, and, if so, the ideological roots of those generations must be traced back to Vonnegut and his contemporaries.

In other words, the simile is more concrete and memorable than the green hill it is supposed to describe. The lack of 'realism' of the poem becomes even more evident through the use of such strange language: the use of language is more important than describing something 'real' like a hill.

If this were not extravagant enough, Coleridge piles yet another image on top of this one that asks the reader to imagine in terms of 'as if': "A mighty fountain momently was forced: / Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst/Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail, / or chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail." Again, the image of the fountain is actually less striking than the simile, the grain being threshed and the fierce hail.

The work expresses with clear honesty the need to express, reality and pain, in ordworthian values. The expression of the work is poignant and clear, as the washerwoman goes through the process of noticing nature, as a guide for time rather than as something she is able to explore at leisure. The woman and the poet explored leisure, in only those available times when she was not otherwise needed for work. There is a clear sense that even in the poet's golden years her sentiments changed little as she so effectively expressed the condition of her life, through the clear and present reality of necessity, better than many of her time. The romantic poet was given license to express pain, through individual self-expression, and this working class woman was not only not an exception but probably even more committed to the ideals of the period than many of the classic…… [Read More]

Wireless Local Area Networks

The establishment of home and business networks desirous of upgrading to Wireless Local Area Network- WLAN confront with the problems of choosing from available alternatives. The vendors offer several products for sale that hovers around different wireless standards like 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and Bluetooth. During the year 1997, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers -- IEEE developed the first WLAN standard. They termed it 802.11 in line with the name given to the group appointed for supervising its development. However, to our misfortune the 802.11 could support only a maximum bandwidth of 2 Mbps -- too slow for most applications. Due to these ordinary 802.11 wireless products could not be manufactured further. (802.11 Standards - 802.11b 802.11a 802.11g: Which one is right for You?)

The IEEE standard is an extension of the original 802.11 standard devised during July, 1999 generating 802.11b specification. While 802.11b was…… [Read More]

John Ashbery Is Widely Regarded as America's

Words: 1450 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 23671087

John Ashbery is widely regarded as America's greatest living poet: his collected earlier work is currently published in a Library of America edition, an honor that has been accorded to no other American poet of his generation. Ashbery's career spans generations and centuries: his first book was published when selected by W.H. Auden for a literary prize in 1956, but in 2007 he accepted the honor of being Poet Laureate of MTV. This might give some sense of the breadth of Ashbery's achievement: something in it could appeal to the intellectually-demanding cantankerous English formalism of Auden and also to the "here we are now, entertain us" mindset of the MTV generation. The critic Harold Bloom has noted that Ashbery seems to be upholding the previous poetic tradition, working within it while also struggling with the work of his predecessors: Bloom writes that in Ashbery's work the reader can "recognize a…… [Read More]

Fern Hill by Dylan Thomas

Dylan Thomas

Understanding a poem is a matter of first and foremost understanding the poet. The individual poet's choice of words and emotions which grab the reader, make a connection, and then deliver an emotional message which leaves a lasting message can be achieved through a number of techniques. But the poet who achieves a lasting memory in the minds of hearts of his readers is a person who approached the pen and ink often from a radically different perspective or with an emotional charge to his life that others not only find fascinating, but envy. Such is the case of Dylan Thomas, a Welshman with a known history of avid drinking, little self-discipline, and a penchant for over-indulgence which lead him to an early grave.

As a young child, Thomas loved the written word. He began writing his first poems at 8 or 9, while his attention was fixed…… [Read More]

Tyger Poem of Pulsating Questioning

Words: 1501 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 78746023

After this troubling question, the poet throws up his hands, no wiser than before. At the end of this poem of pulsating, drum-beat of questions in a sing-song of nursery rhymes, the poem returns to the beginning. The poetic drum retains the short metrical feet: "Tyger! Tyger! burning bright / in the forests of the night, / hat immortal hand or eye/Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?" And the repetition suggests the poet is no wiser about the goodness of God's creation, and the origin of the tiger, lamb, and the world. The existence of evil in the world in the form of the tiger remains in his eyes, as does the possibility that the same creator of that evil also brought forth the lamb and all of existence.

Memory of Elena a Poem to Explain

Memory of Elena

A Poem to Explain Grief

Often a poem's meaning is apparent from only the title. This is not the case with "The Memory of Elena," a poem written by Carolyn Forche in 1981. At first, the title suggests a poetic recollection of Elena, but as the poem develops, we see that it is at first a memory of a lunch with Elena and then Elena's own recollection of the tragic events that destroyed her life. The memories of the poet and Elena merge, becoming as one. The poet remembers her meal with Elena even as Elena recalls her last night with her husband years earlier in Buenos Aires. In the poem, Forche uses the simple symbolism of a meal shared together to bring to light how important remembrance is and how important it is to mourn and recognize the sacrifices others make on our behalf.

Robert Herrick on Julia's Mythic

He even speaks of the petticoat wildly flinging and closely clinging "to thy thighs," evoking the movements of sex and the bodily language of intercourse once again. In the end, this sexualization of language is transformed into words that speak of orgasm and the loss of erection, so often referred to by poets as that "little death" and here labelled as that which is "Drown'd in delights, but could not die" as the speaker grows soft with a passion that did "melt me down" until "I there did lie."

The physicality of these lines might be merely beautiful, as much sexualized love poetry is, had not Herrick's narrated also chosen a wealth of words hinting at the dirtiness of this act, and the fact that it was resisted (in mind) by the woman.

The vivid imagery of the first lines of the verses make almost anything that is not frozen or cold instantly welcome, and the image of "greasy Joan" keeling the pot (that's "cooling" the pot, to modern readers) is definitely amongst these things. The fact the her pot needs to be "keeled" in the first place also means that it was hot beforehand as well, which is precisely the opposite image of what is provided earlier in the verses of the song. Though there is not a major twist in the intellectual direction of the poem or in its form, then, there is a definite shift in the imagery of this song/poem that makes Shakespeare's meaning all the more clear.

It is variation that makes life -- and literature -- exciting, and Shakespeare certainly manages to pack a punch into his poems by changing up the direction of his poems as…… [Read More]

It took several readings of the poem to come to some comprehension.

Tortilla Curtain

Because Boyle has written a fable -- a fiction -- and not an investigative report on immigration and classism, he was able to sympathetically present both Candido incon and Delaney Mossbacher, striped to their naked souls. Neither man is favored in the narrative, though readers are likely to form an alliance -- most likely emerging from their political leanings -- early in the book.

A collision of culture and values. Out of the gate, the reader is treated to Delaney's self-absorption: "To his shame, Delaney's first thought was for the car (was it marred, scratched, dented?), and then for his insurance rates (what was this going to do to his good-driver discount?), and finally, belatedly, for the victim….he'd injured, possibly killed another human being.

Magical Realism in Juan Rulfo's 'Pedro Paramo'

Magical Realism in Juan Rulfo's 'Pedro Paramo' and Gabriel Garc'a-Marquez's 'Death Constant Beyond Love'

The use of Magical Realism, as a technique, in Pedro Paramo and Death Constant Beyond Love, is essentially one whereby elements of the unreal are inextricably woven into real life to question the difference, if any, between illusion and reality. The use of the technique is apparent in the overall story as well as in the way the principal protagonists are shown dealing with life.

In Pedro Paramo, Juan Rulfo leads the reader (and the narrator, Juan) into confronting many of life's basic issues such as death, love, religion and sex through the story of Juan's search for his lost father. However, both the narrator and the reader are also led into an illusionary world since the entire story of the life and times of Pedro Paramo is revealed to Juan through the voices and memories…… [Read More]

The third degree discrimination is when businesses set prices depending on the location and the market segments. Here the supplier will identify the various market segments and have varying prices for the same item due to the varying consumer classes in these regions. The sales managers always have to look at the characteristics of the market and the customers in general.

The factors that the sellers consider here are age of the potential clients and their population in a given area, the economic standards and their purchasing history. This will enable the recommendation of varying prices for the different market segments. This is a discrimination criterion frequently used by the textile industry run by my father in Indonesia and particularly on the export textile. He has countries that will generally buy at higher rates than others hence he does his research and sets the prices accordingly.

Song -- Go and Catch a Falling

Words: 715 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 75502448

Song -- Go and catch a falling star" by John Donne

It was said that Donne's poem was likely written when he was in a drunken mood and possibly, too, when he was rejected by his lover or disappointed in his love. Describing the difficulty of finding virtuous women in the world, Donne uses the similes of catching falling stars, pregnancies with mandrake roots and teaching mermaids to sing. "ide ten thousand days and nights" says he, "till age snow white hairs on thee / Thou, when thou returns't, will tell me / all strange wonders that befell the / and swear / no where / lives a woman true and fair" (lines 12-18). A true Schopenhauer! In his final stanza, Donne concludes that even were this woman to live next door, by the time he would manage to meet her she would have succeeded in being unfaithful.

Tenets Lawrence and Derek Walcott

Words: 1860 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 18345473

Although "Midsummer" is a shot work, in keeping with more of the original modernistic style of poetry writing, it is no less poignant in the message it conveys.

Conclusion

In many ways, DH Lawrence is a visionary that offers the reader imagery and creativity that engulfs the reader into the world in which he creates with his words. As with Walcott, it was not necessary for Lawrence to achieve cadence in his writing though the use of rhyme. There is a balance that is struck that clearly reads as poetic. Lawrence's expressive language and use of interesting characters helps to tell the stories of dehumanization that only comes with man's lack of recognition for the power of nature, and moving too fast in directions unknown under the call for modernization.

Persimmons a Light in the Darkness Persimmons

Words: 1386 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 32290796

Persimmons," a Light in the Darkness

"Persimmons" is a free verse poem written by Li-Young Lee that explores how persimmons as a symbol, both figurative and as a word, have impacted an unnamed narrator in the poem. The poem is told from a first person perspective and relies heavily on the memories invoked by the fruit. The poem does not follow a linear storyline, but rather jumps around as the narrator recounts different events, following a stream of consciousness type of narrative flow. Through the persimmon, the narrator is able to recount past experiences and explore his personal identity.

The poem begins with the narrator's recollection of how he was first introduced to the word persimmon, a fruit which he was previously familiar with due to his Chinese background. The memory appears to be a negative one as the narrator was punished by his sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Walker, for…… [Read More]

Imagery and Theme in Frost's "Out"

Robert Frost's "Out" may appear to be simple in its narrative, straightforwardly telling a story, yet its complex poetic style enables the reader to experience the tragic events that occur through a variety of poetic devices that Frost uses. The poem demonstrates the fickleness of fate and how some things are beyond an individual's control. In "Out," Frost explores the limitations that an individual has over how their life turns out through vivid imagery and its theme.

The poem tells the story of a young boy who accidentally had his hand cut off by a buzz saw and who subsequently died from the shock. "Out" highlights how quickly things can happen and how even a quick response may be futile. Frost establishes a narrative backdrop through imagery and onomatopoeia.

Satan has many names in literature, beginning with the Bible, and they are not limited to the image that people have come to associate with his person. For example, Lucifer means "Angel of Light" (apparently the station from which he fell), but he has also been called "The Prince of the Power of the Air," "The Devil," "The Prince of Demons," and, more in line with the needs of this story, "Mephistopheles." He, or a character very like him, is seen as the central opposite of good in many legends, stories, religious writings and artistic depictions throughout history. It seems every culture has to believe in the dichotomous good and evil, so there has to be a primarily "good" character, and a primarily "bad" character.

Tolstoy and Shakespeare How Much Land Does

Tolstoy and Shakespeare

"How Much Land Does a Man Need?"

The short story "How Much Land Does a Man Need?" By Tolstoy serves to teach a lesson to the reader. It is a morality play explaining the sin of greed and how it leads to trouble. The story begins with a peasant complaining that he does not have enough land. "If I had plenty of land, I shouldn't fear the Devil himself!" (Tolstoy 140) Land is thereby equated with lack of fear. In the end, greed is what causes the peasant Pahom's death. He believes that he can outwit his neighbors and get their land at a fraction of its value. His cockiness leads him to have a heart attack at sunset and be buried in a six foot grave. "Six feet from his head to his heels was all he needed" (140). The title of the story becomes ironic…… [Read More]

Pissarro took a special interest in his attempts at painting, emphasizing that he should 'look for the nature that suits your temperament', and in 1876 Gauguin had a landscape in the style of Pissarro accepted at the Salon. In the meantime Pissarro had introduced him to Cezanne, for whose works he conceived a great respect-so much so that the older man began to fear that he would steal his 'sensations'. All three worked together for some time at Pontoise, where Pissarro and Gauguin drew pencil sketches of each other (Cabinet des Dessins, Louvre).

Gauguin settled for a while in ouen, painting every day after the bank he worked at closed.

Ultimately, he returned to Paris, painting in Pont-Aven, a well-known resort for artists.

1. The dilemma of Obesity

Mokdad et al., (1999) in his study found that the issue of unhealthy weight, overweight and obesity are perhaps one of the rising concerns for the Americans in the 21st century as more and more U.S. citizens become vulnerable to the circumstantial risks and dangers of the phenomenon (Mokdad et al., 1999). It is usually the body mass indexes (BMI) that indicate whether a person is actually overweight or not. The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) carried out a study for the years 1999 to 2002 using the BMI phenomenon and concluded that about 65% of U.S. citizens in the adulthood years were categorized under the overweight group because of their BMI (Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 2005).

Coldness is also the core emotion that the speaker conveys. The cold is "blueblack," which also signals a possible bruise, as if the father was indeed abusive. The father had "cracked hands that ached," which were not from the cold, though, but from his hard work, his labor in the "weekday weather."

Imagery of "splintering and breaking" is contrasted with the powerful last line of "Those inter Sundays," which refers to "love's austere and lonely offices."

2005). The rules for deep-sea life are different than those for terrestrial species. Stratification plays an important role in species classification in vent environments. As the chimney grows in height the environment changes.

Tarasov and associates believe that deep-sea vents have a longer evolutionary history then shallow vents found closer to the surface. This is an important factor in understanding how hydrothermal vents are connected to early life on planet earth. Deep-sea hydrothermal vent communities represent a different phenomenon than shallow water vents. The chemical processes that take place in the deep-sea vent communities are very different from those in shallow areas. Shallow vent species receive light from the sun and more closely resemble terrestrial life forms. However, this is not so with deep-sea forms.

Contemporary Irish Literature

Irish Literature

Ireland has a rich literary tradition with a legacy of authors who have each contributed something to the creation of a cultural identity. For centuries, the authors of Ireland have utilized the beautiful landscape as a counterpoint to the violent political history of the Emerald Isle. Quite literally, the whole history of Ireland can be traced through the literature of the country's writers, both the good and the bad. This tradition lives on in contemporary Irish authors and poets. Two such poets, Ciaran Carson and Allan Gillis, have used their chosen literary type to illustrate their own understanding of Ireland's history. Through their poetry, readers can simultaneously travel back in time and also listen to the eye witness of Ireland's current historical moment. This can be traced through Carson's "Belfast Confetti" and Gillis's "The Ulster ay" in the poetic form, the techniques that the poets utilize, and then…… [Read More]

Cinderella Man

The 2005 film "Cinderella Man" reunites the team of director Ron Howard, screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, and leading man Russell Crowe, who had worked together four years earlier on the Oscar-winning "A Beautiful Mind." On the surface the two projects could not seem more different: in "A Beautiful Mind" Crowe plays John Nash, a bespectacled Princeton professor with paranoid schiozphrenia and a Nobel Prize in economics; in "Cinderella Man" he plays Depression-era heavyweight boxing champion James J. Braddock (who had been dubbed "Cinderella Man" in the newspaper columns of raffish "Guys and Dolls" scribe Damon Runyon, who also supplies the film's epigraph). Although the film was widely praised by critics and was nominated for three Oscars (for editing, makeup, and for Paul Giamatti as Best Actor in a Supporting Role playing Braddock's trainer Joe Gould) "Cinderella Man" would underperform at the box office on its original 2005 release --…… [Read More]

Diverse Poems

Words: 909 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 94315198

T.S. Eliot, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, & Ezra Pound

"Preludes" by T.S. Eliot adopts a slant rhyme pattern to convey the state of his thoughts as he writes the poem. The poem basically illustrates the Voice/Poet's thoughts about the seemingly busy, yet tiresome and uninteresting lives of the people in the urban areas (cities). Eliot paints this tiresome and uninteresting picture of human life in the city by slant rhymes, reflecting the continuous stream of unorganized thoughts of the poet. For example, slant rhyming occurs in lines 2 and 4, where "passageways" and "smoky days" are used. However, towards the end of the poem, slant rhyming is instead replaced with end-rhymes (lines 12 and 13, with rhymes used "stamps" and "lamps"), proving once again the presence of 'unstable' and changing thoughts of the poet.

"The pennycandystore beyond the El" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti utilizes symbolism to effectively depict his thoughts about the fleeting…… [Read More]

When I Was One and Twenty

Words: 425 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 67367192

twenty by A.E. Housman (1859-1936). From a Shropshire Lad. 1896.

The title of poem "When I was one and twenty" by, A.E. Housman, immediately indicates to the reader that the author no longer is "one and twenty," because the first word of the poem "when," dates this age in the past rather than in the present. Also, although the poem ends with a reference to the poet being "twenty-two," and thus still hardly of an old age, the irony of one year giving the individual a sense of weight and experience in matters of the heart seems less than genuine, suggesting that Housman is actually much older than his twenties, and is viewing the entire decade of his twenties as one where sensations and emotions, rather than logic or experience rule his human, adolescent heart.

Also, by paring the poet with a wise man, versus the poet as a young…… [Read More]

British Poetry

Words: 1309 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 22043678



"The Sleeping Beauty" by Lord Alfred Tennyson uses several narrative techniques. The first of which can be seen in the second line of the first stanza. "She lying on her couch alone" (). The phrase uses incorrect English to change the tone of the poem. Although the poem does not try to establish a rhyming pattern in the BC in the first stanza with "grown" and "form," the two words sound well together as though they rhyme. The pattern however is ABABCDCD with BC sounding like they should rhyme. All the "slumberous light" uses personification to describe light.

Many of the lines within the first stanza are filled with imagery of this woman: "A braid of pearl" and "rounded curl." She is so beautiful and magnificent that even the smallest things she does are explained or described on a grand scale. She is the epitome of beauty and wears the…… [Read More]

This sentence tells us that the child no doubt saw his mother after his father beat her. He does not blame her not does he even think to question her actions. He understands and is glad that she may be living a life without that kind of pain.

The speaker of this poem also possesses the ability to see his father in a very human way. This may stem from retrospect or the notion that within each of us lays the capacity of good and evil. The speaker does not express hate for his father; instead, he sees him as a troubled, somewhat simple man. The speaker does not express any sympathy for his father, realizing that all of the sweat and agony over the words he wanted to say could not erase the past or the pain it caused. He sees his father's anguish and can only bring himself…… [Read More]

Anselm also added the passion of repentance and the exhilaration of praise to the bare texts, involving the supplicant in an intensity of feeling and a deepening of understanding. In the intensity of sorrow for sin, he is the heir of Augustine of Hippo, and the language of the Confessions is very close to Anselm's self-revelation and repentance.

(McGinn, Meyendorff, and Ledercq 202)

So, in City of God the textual concepts from his earlier works became the stuff of reformative language that would apply itself not only to the personal but to how the person was meant to build upon the institutions that surrounded him, influenced him and in turn was influenced by him. Bernard of Clairvaux was a direct descendant of Augustine in his ideas.

Mass Transit Transportation Is Important

Words: 2613 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 76568566



In short, providing transit using the current paradigms and strategies is unsustainble. Transit's success depends on the ability of planners to make the lives of travelers worse off by making it harder to get around, restricting housing choice and type, and subjecting people to all manner of externalities and lifestyles they routinely choose to avoid in the current housing market place (e.g., small homes, urban noise, and air pollution" (Stanley 2007).

Facts and figures publication of the Road Information Program, a Mobility omparison of Investments in Highways and Mass Transit, notes that Despite a 148.8% increase in operating subsidies between 1980 and 1990, mass transit was unable to increase its share of the nation's PMT. In fact, between 1980 and 1990, mass transit's share of the nation's passenger miles of non-marine, surface transportation decreased from 1.43% to 1.27%...total PMT provided by mass transit exceeded 1% of total transportation in only…… [Read More]

Conclusion

From the evidence in this paper, mass transit is important for long-run economic growth and less traffic. This can be shown in many cities where the economic cost of the commuting time is huge. By eliminating issue, it would bring a significant improvement in the economy's efficiency and modern day continence. The economic and military power of a nation has been closely tied to efficient methods of transportation since it provides access to natural resources and promotes trade. A nation can gain wealth and power by increasing the use of mass transit since it allows the movement of soldiers, equipment, and supplies so that a nation can wage war. "Metra ridership grew by about 15% between 1985 and 1995.... Generally, all Metra zones have been experiencing steady growth since 1985.... Ridership in zones a and B (combined) increased by about 800,000 annual riders between 1990 and 1994. These are the zones closest to the CBD. This 14% increase may be due to switching of CTA (Heavy Rail) passengers to Metra to benefit from better fares and a better passenger environment." (Weyrich and Lind). Furthermore, it has become apparent that reliable transportation allows a population to expand throughout a country's territory without being traffic congested.

This is emphasized by his regret that he cannot take both roads and be one traveler: "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, / and sorry I could not travel both / and be one traveler..."(Frost,122) Also, when he decides for one road, he hopes he can take the other later, but afterwards realizes that this is no longer possible since one decision leads to another, and there is no going back. Frost thus discusses life ironically, realizing that one decision can change one's whole life, without the possibility of going back and taking a different road.

In Auden's poem, the Unknown Citizen, the irony is even plainer to see. The death of the citizen who had lived like a saint in the "modern sense" of the word is very ironical. To live as a saint in the modern way, is to be a social character, who lives only according…… [Read More]

Blue Terrance" by Terrance Hayes and "The eary Blues" by Langston Hughes both use the blues as a metaphor for human existence. The 'blues' are a historically African-American form of musical expression that pairs sorrow with expressive music, and is considered one of the greatest contributions of African-Americans to musical culture. However, the authors' uses of the blues as a metaphor are different. Hayes uses the blues to express his own, personal pain of romantic rejection and his difficulties in life, although he clearly sees his attraction to the blues as a natural extension of his African-American identity. Hughes, in contrast, takes a more expansive view of the blues, and sees all African-Americans as united in the blues. hen he sees a solitary blues singer, he identifies with the man, and eventually by the end of his poem, his identity and the identity of the singer are united by the…… [Read More]

Frederic Chopin, who is often called "the poet of the piano," does not falter with Prelude Op. 28, No. 4, which is in the key of E minor. The Prelude Op. 28, No. 4 is homophonic and one of twenty-four preludes written for piano within Op. 28, and each piece corresponds to one of the twenty-four keys. This is one of Chopin's more famous pieces and contains a dark tone (in part due to the piece being in a minor key) (Nicholas 2007). Perhaps this is why he chose this song along with Mozart's equiem played at his funeral (Niecks 1888). In addition to the minor key evoking a feeling of sadness and despair, Chopin was well-known for using dissonance which is very prevalent in a majority of the lower toned chords in No. 4 (Sheppard 2006).

)

Note in the above quoted phrase, "How he died and why he died" the line is an anapest, or two weakly accented syllables followed by one strong stress. Anapests are often been used by narrative to give a feel of singsong silliness, as in Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky," but in this case, the jingoistic tone of many of the phrases of the poem is used to convey a sense of a patriotic song with a matching and militaristic beat. Kipling's frequent use of anapests give the entire poem a quality of a marching tune, like "For a goat may butt, and a worm may sting, / and a child will sometimes stand;/but a poor dead soldier of the King/Can never lift a hand." The marching quality of these phrases makes the scene painted by the words sound even more tragic and ironic, while the occasional use of dactyls, one strong…… [Read More]

On October 6, 1973, Israel was attacked by the combined forces of Egypt and Syria. It was Yom Kipper, the most sacred day in the Jewish calendar. Egypt began as Israel had, with an air attack. On the ground, Israel was outnumbered six to one, fielding only about 200,000 soldiers against a combined force of over 1,150,000 Arab troops. Once again, the Soviet Union was involved, sending over 1,000 tons of weapons and ammunition to Egypt and Syria during the early days of the war. The United States was forced to intervene. On October 13, President Richard Nixon ordered an airlift of military supplies, enabling Israel to sustain its forces.

In that regard, such foods are more likely to be consumed by those in the lower income brackets as they seek to shelter some dollars. hen it comes to technological and agricultural innovations, Nnakwe explains that such occurrences drive down the prices of food (209). Cheaper food could motivate people to eat much more than their regular portions. Further, weight gain and thus obesity may be as a result of giving up smoking. There are various reasons that support this assertion. To begin with, those who quit smoking may increase the food portions they ingest largely because individuals tend to taste their food better after they quit smoking (National Institutes of Health). Further, quitting smoking affects the body's calorie burning rate. According to the National Institutes of Health, "nicotine raises the rate at which your body burns calories."

The radicals that resisted the mainstream culture were what Ginsberg referred to as the "best minds" and they were fallen heroes in his view. The group experimented with drugs, sex, Eastern religions, anti-consumerism, and a general opposition to any kind of expression through materialism.

The Madrid train bombing occurred during the morning of March 11, 2004, significantly occurring close to the general elections. The deadly attack took the lives of 191 people and wounded 1,800. The explosives were placed on commuter trains during the busy day of rush hour. The attack was speculated to have been the doings of the Basque separatist organization, known as the ETA due to their violent past. The ETA was known for a thirty year long violence strike, claiming the lives of an estimated 800 people. The blame ETA received came from all sides of the fence, "Angel Acebes, the country's interior minister, claimed, "There is no doubt ETA is responsible."
