Fiction ith Drama
There are a number of similarities and differences existent between Sharon E. Cooper's "Mistaken Identity " and David Henry Hwang's "Mistaken Identity." Still, the most eminent of these pertains to the genre in which they were written. Both of these works are dramas, which makes them markedly different from other forms of fiction including poetry and fiction. An analysis of these two works reveals this fact, as does a comparison of the most distinctive factors between their genre, drama, and both fiction and poetry.
Thematically, Cooper and Hwang's works are highly similar. Both of them chronicle tales of relatively young people seeking to find their own identities. Moreover, they are attempting to find such identities in a world in which their preferred identities are largely unacceptable. In Cooper's work, the protagonist is coping to terms with her identity as a "lesbian" (Cooper). In Hwang's tale, both of his….
Sharon E. Cooper's play "Mistaken Identity" criteria: Clear thesis statement, coverage elements
No Mere Mistake
Without a doubt, Sharon E. Cooper's dramatic work, which is entitled Mistaken Identity is unabashedly a comedy. This play is based upon a number of situations that are emblematic of modern day life, which the author primarily uses to poke fun at several social conventions that are prevalent in contemporary society. As the title of this play largely implies, the fundamental concept that fuels the majority of the plot is misunderstanding, which manifests itself in a couple of disparate forms that are intrinsically related to the two principle characters, Steve and Kali. Cooper utilizes the fact that each of these characters has a misconception about who the other is and what that person wants as a means of providing comedy and insight into notions of identity in contemporary society.
The principle misunderstanding that exists between Steve and….

Criminals don't always need to have shotguns and masks to threat and rob money; it only takes a social security number, or a pre-approved credit card application from trash to make things according to their wicked way (ID Theft, 2004).
Some consumers have had credit card numbers and Social Security numbers stolen and used fraudulently or identity theft. By taking reasonable steps to protect your personal information, this can mitigate the chance that it may be stolen (What you should know about internet banking, 2007) by identity thieves.
Identity theft is a term used for serious crimes associated with someone uses your name, address, Social Security number, bank or credit card account number or other identifying information without your knowledge to commit fraud. This fraud may only take setting up accounts in your name and make online transactions without you knowing (Get the Upper Hand on Credit Crime, 2004).

identity is a means of classifying an individual when it comes to private matter and the government. How a government identifies someone or an institution, is through the use of an identity card. An identity card has a serial number and a picture that helps law enforcement, government agencies and other organizations identity an individual for potential jobs, loans, and even for medical care. However there are some issues with identity cards. For instance, are can people who have access to this information treat individuals unfairly, will there be higher instances of identity theft? Can "Big Brother" use this as a means of spying on civilians? It's important to look at this issue from various angles.
The UK has, for a number of years, set in motion creation of a system to update their identity card regulations and procedures. "A law was passed which established the intention to create a….

Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales is a collection of case studies compiled by Oliver Sacks, a physician and professor of neurology who often writes about the interesting cases he comes across in his profession. This volume of twenty case studies reads more like a book of short stories. The people he describes are remarkable, unique examples of the strange and fascinating workings of the neurological mind. The case studies themselves are written in a fluid, engaging style that is accessible to all levels of readers, including not just other neurologists and medical professionals, but also the average layperson.
The book gets its unusual title from one of Sacks' cases. A man, a music teacher described only as Dr. P., has received a recommendation from his ophthalmologist to visit Dr. Sacks for problems ostensibly related to vision. Since the eye specialist is unable to….
It is for this reason that one could reasonably argue that Precious' entire life, and particularly the trials and tribulations she must endure, including her violent family life, her poverty, and her illiteracy, all ultimately stem from her racial and ethnic background, because the pervasive, institutional racial inequalities that still exist in America served to structure her entire life. Even before she began she was already disadvantaged by being born a black woman in the United States, because the United States maintains a system of social, economic, and political inequality that disproportionately impoverishes the black population. Thus, in broad strokes, one can say that all of the major events in Precious' life are a result of her ethnic background and the meaning American society places on that category of difference.
Perhaps more than any of the novels discussed here, Push manages to make the idea of difference as a form of….

Complexities and Potential in Cross-Cultural Counseling
In 1897 the French sociologist Emile Durkheim wrote about the influence of culture on suicide rates among different groups. He found that while suicide seems to be the most private and most individualistic choice that a person can make (what could be more private than the dialogue that an individual has with eternity, after all) cultural values still hold sway. His research has been criticized over the decades, but its central point remains valid. Culture seeps into every level of both our conscious and unconscious behaviors, and therefore must be attended to in every aspect of the therapeutic process. However, while at least most therapists as well as most of those individuals studying to become therapists are certainly aware of this fact, this awareness does not necessarily translate into sufficient care taken to minimize the harm that cross-cultural misunderstandings or blindnesses that can occur….

The self-organization concept refers to the identity, vision, mission, and values of the organization. An organization's identity includes current interpretations of its history, present decisions and activities, and its sense of its future. It is the identity that provides the capacity for evolution and self-organization.
To hold the organization together for an identity, the free-flow of information is considered important. Only when information belongs to everyone in the organization, people begin to organize rapidly and effectively around customers, competitors, and environments (Stewart and Manz, 1995). It is that creates the conditions for the emergence of fast, well-integrated, and effective responses. Also, free flow of information brings together members of an organization for solving the organizational problems (Ashby, 1969). Beyond that, customers become the stakeholders that help in refinement of the organization.
Therefore, one of the prime concerns for leaders become that they avoid the barriers that create hindrance in information flow within….

By doing so, she is willing to provide an answer to a question that some historians would say is unanswerable, namely -- how could Bertrande be so deceived, and what would be her motivations in keeping up such a ruse? Davis suggests that her motivations were economic, personal, and social, and were the production of various historical forces, like the rise of Protestantism and the new value accorded to individual choice in society.
Of course a dissenter might respond that the reason Davis' psychological reading is so persuasive to a modern reader is because it comes from the mind of a modern woman, and the tale is told to appeal to modern-day readers, just like a film. e value individual choice, and the right of a woman not to suffer in misery, in the thrall of an unfair law that makes her a nonperson because her husband leaves her yet….
That can happen with commanders who are not capable of handling stress very well (Paton, 2003). They may operate acceptably when they are addressing everyday life, but when they are faced with something that is a major occurrence they will struggle because they are unsure of how to proceed. They can panic, or they can look for ways to cover up problems, but they will not be effective leaders and/or uphold the quality of leadership they should be providing to their followers (Green, 2010). Stress and upset can do that to anyone, but when that person is in command of others there can be a seriously detrimental effect that spreads out through the police force and into society (Paton, 2003). People should look to the police for help and support, not feel as though officers - and especially the commander - cannot be trusted to protect them. If Blair….

5. They finally track the car to the O'Brien Furniture Company, who had a boxcar present at five robbery locations, and then they find that the car always returned to San Francisco after the robberies were completed. Cussler says, "Boxcar serial number 15758 was present in Virginia City and Bisbee during the robberies. In Virginia City, its cargo manifest was listed as fifty bales of barbed wire to be transported to a ranch in Southern California" (Cussler 150).
6. San Francisco turns up again when the man who tries to murder Bell turns out to be from San Francisco, too. They now know that the Bandit is probably based somewhere in San Francisco, and that his family and friends have no idea he is the Butcher Bandit, so they go to San Francisco to check out leads. Another tie-in to the Bay Area is that thanks to some serial numbers that….

further blames Jonson for this corruption: "No one can read this dainty song to Celia without feeling that Jonson is indecorous in putting it in the mouth of such a thoroughgoing scoundrel as Volpone."
asserts that the usual view of Jonson's use of the Catullan poem is distorted by an insufficient understanding of Catullus' carmina, which comes from critics' willingness to adhere to a conventional -- yet incorrect and incomplete -- reading of the love poem. hen Jonson created his adaptation of carmina 5, there was only one other complete translation in English of a poem by Catullus. That translation is believed to have been Sir Philip Sidney's rendering of poem 70 in Certain Sonnets, however, it was not published until 1598.
This means that Jonson's knowledge of the poem must have come from the Latin text printed in C. Val. Catulli, Albii, Tibulli, Sex. Aur. Propertii Opera omnia….
Rather than inquiring with Una into her motivations or intentions when he discovered her image with another man, Redcrosse flees and abandons her to fend for herself. Una, is upset to find herself alone in a dangerous land, not truly knowing why her knight had left her. Rather that believing in her loyalty and virtue, Redcrosse took the easy way out in the land of great deception and turmoil. He assumed that what his eyes saw was really reality, rather than believing in Una's true virtue.
Later in Cantos XI, the tables of deception turn. Once again a case of mistaken identity threatens the virtue of one of the major characters in the epic story. Rather than Una, this time it is Redcrosse's virtue which is questioned. After defeating the dragon and freeing Una's parents, a messenger arrives and informs the kingdom that Redcrosse is in fact engaged to another….
She does not accept a world in which their native land has fallen and they have no emotional reaction to leaving it. So she negotiates an identity which has lost something. When her husband cannot accept this identity, and then apparently abandons her at the train station, she negotiates the idea of an identity that is strong enough to survive and find love and gratification and recognition without him. When her husband cannot accept that identity and cries out that it is unbearable, she is forced (again) to recant it... In that moment, her husband kills her salesman-brute-lover as surely as he killed her dog. Is it any wonder that when she creates a noble, good lover in her mind, she conceals it from him for fear he will kill it... Or kill them both, by forcing her to again deny her dream self? When she tells him "Perhaps….

Twelfth Night Response
William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night is a romantic comedy in which the basis of the comedy is love, suffering, misunderstandings, confusion, mistaken identities and sexual ambiguity. It tells the story of twin brother and sister who were shipwrecked and separated in the kingdom of Illyria; and the misunderstandings that occur in their attempt to discover each other's fate. In the midst of this, the romantic advances of a local nobleman, named Orsino, toward a young widow, Olivia, are being disrupted not only by her refusal to respond, but by his confused feelings toward his new male page Cesario. The page is actually the female twin, Viola, in disguise and adding to the situation is the fact that the young widow also becomes attracted to the page. When the male twin, named Sebastian, arrives and is mistaken for the page Cesario, even more confusion erupts. But in the end the….
