Critique of a Peers Response

Words: 673 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 59809811

Review of a Peer’s Response

One of my classmates has provided a detailed response on how he will respond to a question relating on conducting a research. The classmate has clearly stated what he will do before, during, and after completing an assignment. I like his response to the question because he has clearly stated the various steps he will undertake to complete an assignment. His response makes it easier for the reader to understand the necessary steps for completing an assignment in order to generate the most suitable findings or conclusions. As a result, his response has some positive things as well as things he does differently from me when completing an assignment. While the detailed response enables one to understand the various processes, there are certain things he should do differently in order to enhance his findings.
One of the positive things about the process provided by my…… [Read More]

Orwell in Why I Write

Words: 1573 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 10263533

"

Orwell presents a rather romantic picture of the life of a writer. A writer is someone who is driven internally, psychically, spiritually. The desire to write might initially be due to an admiration of a famous author, or a personal affection for the Harry Potter books. Or, the desire to write might be due to a want of recognition, fame, or even fortune. Writing can be used as a weapon as with bitter letters to politicians or ex-girlfriends.

Some writing is purely journalistic in tone, whereas other writing is all fluff. With his characteristic humor, Orwell takes a dig at journalists when he states, "Serious writers, I should say, are on the whole more vain and self-centered than journalists, though less interested in money." The essay "Why I Write" is an effective piece of prose because the author is credible, and bolsters his argument with humility as well as…… [Read More]

Dutchman a Play Written by

Words: 1033 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 41233115

This may not have been the lesson of the drama, but it certainly reminded me of this fact.

In another way, I find the story unsettling in that it indicates how oftentimes the minority person is punished solely by virtue of his being a different color, or looking different in some way (Editors of Salem Press). It is not only the different color that causes punishment and social penalization. Other external, such as age, handicap, and looks can penalize one too. These are externals as Clay points out to Lula: "You really don't know anything about me." Meaning: You don't know anything about the real me. You are judging me according to facts or myths that you mentally construct upon. The real 'me' slips by you unexamined and ignored. This may be a lesson to those who engage in stereotypes. Doing so is harmful not only to victim but also…… [Read More]

"Beauty and the Beast:" Fairy tale vs. cinema

The story "Beauty and the Beast" is one of the most popular juvenile fairy tales of all time. It has also been a potent source of metaphor for many authors and filmmakers. One of the most famous written versions of the fairy tale for children is one authored by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont. Beaumont uses the story in a didactic fashion, both to illustrate the values of Beauty and the superior values of the countryside. hen Beauty's family is located in the city, her sisters adopt the shallow and superficial values of the city and refuse to associate with people of their own merchant class. Only after being humbled in the countryside does the youngest daughter…… [Read More]

Night the Crystals Broke Write Where You

Words: 3364 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 66231725

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.

(2) Which author and poem did you refer to when writing this poem?

Michael Krause Has Written a New Book

Words: 4753 Length: 17 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 46950134

Michael Krause has written a new book that provides eight sales strategies that are supposed to help increase sales, engendered a more motivated sales staff, and help sustain both. The eight strategies are: USP and UVP; Strategic planning; SWOT analysis; Engage your ideal clients; Build a cash reserve; Core capabilities and realistic goal setting; Balanced scoreboard, and; Do you have what it takes? The author looks at the entire organization and not just the sales staff, but he tries to tie all of what he says into sales.

He loses some credibility because he uses some terms wrong, but this is not problematic necessarily as they are the sailing terms he employs as part of the illustrations in the book. However, he does make some questionable suggestions regarding the fourth strategy.

Curriculum Books Have Been Written Since the

Words: 3875 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 59141556

curriculum books have been written since the turn of the [20th] century; each with a different version of what 'curriculum' means (Ackerman, 1988). I define classroom curriculum design as the sequencing and pacing of content along with the experiences students have with that content. My use of the qualifier classroom is important. By definition, I am considering those decisions regarding sequencing, pacing, and experiences that are the purview of the classroom teacher. Some aspects of curricular design are addressed at the school level if, in fact, a school has a guaranteed and viable curriculum. egardless of the direction provided by the school (or district), individual teachers still need to make decisions regarding curricular design at the classroom level given the unique characteristics of their students. Indeed, in a meta-analysis involving 22 studies, Anderson, (2003) found a strong relationship between a student's knowledge and experience with content and the type of…… [Read More]

Learning to Read and Write in English

Words: 1349 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 21447154

Learning to read and write in English has been one of my most treasured accomplishments in the recent past. To begin with, learning to read and write in English is in my opinion the very first step towards becoming a fluent speaker of one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. In that regard therefore, I am convinced that fluency in English is a plus as I pursue my career of choice. Given that English is one of the most common languages, corporations and most organizations would ordinarily hire individuals who can relate well with their customers and clients. Being able to read, write, and speak English will therefore give me a distinct advantage in my future job seeking endeavors. It is also important to note that fully aware that the world is increasingly becoming interconnected; the relevance of learning an additional language cannot be overstated. It is…… [Read More]

Manual should be written in a way that is clear for the individual reading it so that he or she is able to follow each and every instruction and going through the steps precisely understand how to employ / use the appliance without mussing over it, or turning to another for guidance.

The instructions and layout should be clear to the eye. It should be aesthetic and a pleasure -- rather than a burden -- to peruse. Strategies such as bulleting, numerals, and borders should be used to facilitate this.

The instructions should be written with the knowledge that a diversity of people from different cultures and different levels of intelligence and/or ability with engineering skills will be reading manual.

William Shakespeare Has Written a Number of

Words: 667 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 73103990

William Shakespeare has written a number of love sonnets. In general, these tend to be less conventional than the typical romantic poem, where love is praised above all things as the purpose of life and relationships. Instead, Shakespeare tends towards a more realistic sense of loving despite imperfection and despite life's challenges. To some degree, the same is true of Sonnet 116, which begins with the line "Let me not to the marriage of true minds/admit impediments. Love is not love…" When read for its deeper meaning, it becomes clear that Shakespeare is not denying the realities of life together for romantic partners; he admits that there will be difficulty. The central point of the poem, however, is contained in these lines, implying that true love is solid and unchanging, regardless of any changes or challenges that might be found in the environment or conditions surrounding it.

Moore's Law Without Silicon Written

Words: 530 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 29462875

Behind Moore's Law is the theory that transistors get better as they get smaller. The article points out that some scientists are adamant that silicon continues to be the future of microprocessors. However, others are opting to look for materials that have better properties than silicon. The article highlights the benefits of compound materials, such as indium gallium arsenide, for transistors.

This technological development impacts Moore's Law by providing a means to continue it holding true. In order for the number of transistors on a chip to continue doubling every two years, they should continue to get better as they get smaller or there would be no reason to continue increasing the number of transistors. If silicon does not continue to offer the benefits of smaller transistors, Moore's Law will become false if another material does not replace silicon in transistors.

Silicon-free transistors will impact the computer industry positively and…… [Read More]

Namely Bogland Written by Seamus

Words: 1221 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 43770610

Going further with the analysis, it could be stated that the Irish get answers to their dilemmas from their own cultural identity (which is nourished by the best values).

The previous idea of Ireland being eternal is supported by the view according to which its history stretches to immemorial times: "Every layer they strip/Seems camped on before./The bogholes might be Atlantic seepage./The wet centre is bottomless" (Heaney, 25-28). The fact that the centre is wet suggests the constant and eternal vitality of existence's root. The values of the people living in ogland can not get weary because they have such a solid source.

If ogland is the place where the poet comes from, in Yeats' case, Innisfree is the place where he wishes to escape. The environment is simple and just like in the poem analyzed above, the island is a symbol of freedom. In addition, the isolation allows the…… [Read More]

While we are shown the fact that Sammy, ogles the girls and makes a queen of the leader. On one hand while he feels no pang in doing so he is disgusted by the butcher's lustful gaze. (Saldivar, 214)

There is rebellion when the manager who is a puritan rebukes the girls. The only outrage that the manager, Lengel, seem to have done is to make the queen blush. Thus Sammy quits his job against an authority that demeans people. The girls seem neither to have noticed the managers' consternation or admonition nor have they noticed Sammy standing up for them. Sammy gains nothing but loses his job in the bargain. (Saldivar, 215)

Fayol Wrote That the Five

Words: 1183 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 30140508



There is a disconnect in academia, if not in practice, with regards to understanding the relevance of Fayol's work to modern managers. In the literature oriented to quality control, management systems and production management, there is little doubt that Fayol retains a direct influence on management practice. Fayol was instrumental in introducing scientific methods of inquiry to the management function. This has lead to the entire discipline of quality management, such that all modern QM concepts have at their roots in Fayol's understanding of the management function (de Mast & Does, 2006). Authors critical of Fayol's influence tend to be oriented towards softer forms of management. Such authors fail to see the relevance of Fayol's work in their conception of management as a people-oriented discipline predicated on driving creativity, innovation and oriented towards motivation.

Yet even the people-centric view of management owes a debt to Fayol. Such schools of management…… [Read More]

Cassandra Written by Christa Wolf

Words: 1455 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 56943618

However, she is no bloodless female, absent of sexuality, despite her resistance of Apollo. In this respect, Wolf does update her story -- rather than a virgin or a sexless prophetess, Cassandra does have a relationship with Aeneas. She loves this hero with the ardor of a young woman, calling him the soul of Troy. But because he is a man, unlike Cassandra, Aeneas can master history and triumph. The admiration of Aeneas indicates the verisimilitude Wolf brings to her tale -- Cassandra has emotions and feelings, rather than simply spouts words, as in Agamemnon.

Wolf also interjects anecdotes into the story to make it more clearly told with Trojan eyes such as the Trojan's allegation that Helen was abducted because Priam's sister Hesione's eloped with a Spartan. Again, this underlines Wolf's theme of women as pawns and spoils of war -- it does not matter what Helen or Hesione…… [Read More]
