Gerul aspru şi sălbatic strânge-n braţe-i cu j'ălire
Neagra luncă de pe vale care zace-n amorţire;
El ca pe-o mireasă moartă o-ncunună despre ziori
C-un văl alb de promoroacă şi cu ţurţuri lucitori.

Gerul vine de la munte, la fereastră se opreşte,
Şi, privind la focul vesel care-n sobe străluceşte,
El depune flori de iarnă pe cristalul îngheţat,
Crini şi roze de zăpadă ce cu drag le-a sărutat.

Gerul face cu-o suflare pod de gheată între maluri,
Pune streşinelor casei o ghirlandă de cristaluri,
Iar pe feţe de copile înfloreşte trandafiri,
Să ne-aducă viu aminte de-ale verii înfloriri.

Gerul dă aripi de vultur cailor în spumegare
Ce se-ntrec pe câmpul luciu, scoţând aburi lungi pe nare.
O! tu, gerule năprasnic, vin', îndeamnă calul meu
Să mă poarte ca săgeata unde el ştie, şi eu!
(Vasile Alecsandri, Gerul)

Anorexia in America

...Unlike Any Other Disease: Anorexia “I really gotta start losing weight before spring break,” a 15 year old from Long Island wrote in her blog on, a social networking site. “Basically today I went 24 hours without food and then I ate green beans and a little baked ziti. Frankly I’m proud of myself, not to mention the 100 sit-ups on the yoga ball and the 100 I’ll do before sleep. Yay for me.” (Williams 2). Anorexia nervosa is an illness that usually occurs in teenage girls, but it can also happen to teenaged boys and adult men and women. People with anorexia nervosa are obsessed with the thought of being and remaining thin. They lose a lot of weight and are terrified of gaining it back. Anorexia nervosa isn’t just a problem with food or weight; it’s an attempt to deal with emotional problems (Siegel 1). To completely understand and comprehend this horrific disease, you must consider the media that includes pro-anorexia websites that include negative support for suffering anorexics, celebrities in Hollywood, and teenager’s peers. Background information and the effects are also vital to the cause of this disease. If we look into any teenager’s experiences throughout middle school and right through high school there are all sorts of negative pressures: to drink, smoke, use drugs. But one of the least visible one of them is all is unforgiving demands to be thin and appear as the famous stars to in Hollywood. Teenager’s peers may put pressure on the so called......

Santa Ana Winds Comparison Rhetorical Analysis

...The Santa Ana Winds “ The Santa Ana” by Joan Didion and “Brush Fire” by Linda Thomas offer complete separate views to a similar topic, the winds of Southern California. In a first person narration the authors write of the wind from her own experience of living in California and from her own perspective, shedding light on two very different aspects of the Santa Ana winds. Physically, both pieces of literature are different. Each story reflects its own writer as “The Santa Ana” has lengthy paragraphs, chock full of information. Didion is an American Author known for her literary journalism and use of logos. At a glance of the piece, it lists of reasonings and details is clearly visible. Each paragraph is filled with descriptions and examples of the author’s point. Didion cites others like Raymond Chandler and uses lots of facts to prove her point of the winds destructive nature. “Brush Fire” has noticeably shorter paragraphs and uses much more imaginative diction like in paragraph four where she describes the wind’s journey as “....arrives in the foothills of southern California in hot, bone-dry, ten to forty mile-per-hour gusts that lower the relative humidity to three percent” in comparison to Didion’s description in paragraph three, “warmed as it comes down the mountain and appears finally as a hot dry wind”. Thomas is a well-versed poet, known to have published in the American Poetry Review. She offers her own opinion and recalls many memories with the winds in short......

Lead in Candy

...Lead in Candy A recent issue that has generated a good deal of controversy is contaminants in children's candy, imported mostly from Mexico. The Orange County Register (OC Register) conducted an investigation and “recommendations emerged from sources during the course of the investigation” (2013). Recommendations include, but are not limited to, train “candy makers” on ways to reduce lead; testing of manufactures and providers of chili, tamarind, and packaging; improve communication by sharing data in-house and with Mexican officials to coerce change of production methods; and publicize the effects of lead on children’s health (and in adults, especially during pregnancy), such as delayed growth, hearing and weight loss, untimely birth, permanent brain damage and even death, for example (UCLA Report, 2009). The OC Register (2013) states that, “some changes have occurred on both sides of the border.” As an example, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) relayed a letter to candy producers saying it will start the process of setting a lower acceptable level of lead in domestic products, and the agency stresses that the new maximum levels are “achievable under good manufacturing practices in the production of candies and candy ingredients” (Food Navigator USA, 2006). In addition, it is important to mention that the number of cases of lead poisoning have dropped dramatically over the last two decades, due largely to both environmental regulations and......

Models and Weight the Fashion Weeks of New York and London they are still the exception. In a reflection of the expanding market for women who defy the super-slender ideals of the catwalk, leading fashion magazine Elle offered its readers a special issue in March featuring larger than normal models and sales jumped. British designer Mark Fast introduced shows last year in which the models were all above a British size twelve, and American size eight, following criticism that his dresses were too skinny. Despite their trailblazing status in the fashion world, when it comes to bigger models New York and London are slightly out of step. The move towards more generously sized models has accelerated since the death from anorexia in 2006 of Brazilian model Ana Carolina Reston, which shocked the fashion world. Spain and Italy banned models below a certain body mass index after her death, while Britain stopped short; banning only those aged under sixteen from the catwalk. “Sixteen corresponds to a level of maturity,” said Caroline Ruth of the British Fashion Council. When Frederique van der Wal, a former Victoria’s Secret model, attended designers’ shows during New York’s Fashion Week this month, she was “shocked” by the waiflike models who paraded down the catwalk. They seemed even skinnier than in previous years. “We know seeing super-thin models can play a role in causing anorexia,” says Nada Stotland, professor of psychiatry at Rush Medical College in Chicago and vice president of......
