Analysis on "The Hiding Place" Trying to forgive your enemy is like trying to see in the dark, it is nearly impossible. In Corrie Ten Boom's book, The Hiding Place, forgiving her enemies was hard, but her faith in God made it possible. At the very beginning of the book, Corrie Ten Boom introduces the theme of faith by telling about her family and their strong Christian beliefs. She tells about her father, Casper. She explains that he would read the Bible and pray with Corrie and her family twice a day. Corrie's father also loved and respected the Jewish. Along with her father, the author mentions Betsie, her sister. Betsie took care of their home in Haarlem, Holland. In 1940, the Nazis invaded Holland, and World War II began. Due to the Ten Boom's strong Christian beliefs, they felt obligated to help their Jewish friends in every way possible. Their home soon became the center for a major anti-Nazi operation. In order to help her friends, Corrie had to do some sinful things like lie and bribe. Corrie sacrificed her own safety.nd part of her bedroom that became a secret room that was a hiding place for the Jews to have constant safety. The author later tells us that her entire family gets arrested by the Nazis, but the hidden Jews remained safe. Corrie and Betsie were sent to various concentration camps where the conditions were cruel. In every camp, the sisters used a hidden Bible to spread the word of God. Corrie was amazed by Betsie's faith through the ungodly conditions. Corrie found it hard to look to Heaven, but Betsie showed a universal love for everyone including the Nazis.

Thomas My Place: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis COMM 315/Diversity Issues in Communication November 4, 2010 Barbara Lach-Smith Although, I am not the type of person who judges people based on their superficial characteristics, after reviewing the examples depicted in the multimedia analysis, I did find myself judging people based on superficial characteristics as proven in the following examples. Example #1 “I received my bachelor’s degree in English and worked as the managing editor of a weekly newspaper while pursuing my master’s degree in communications. Shortly after attaining my master’s I worked for a large company as a graphic specialist before I began teaching for Axia College online. While working on my master’s degree, I lost my mom to cancer. Soon after, I struggled to find myself and experimented with many drugs, only to find out that they weren’t the answer and that my mom wasn’t coming back.” In this scenario, I originally selected the wrong person, and my selection was based on appearance...

Hiding a Disability

...Hiding a Disability Craig Kendzie ETH/316 January 14, 2014 Tammy Matthews Hiding a Disability Many people did not know that our former President Franklin D Roosevelt was paralyzed from the waist down. They believed if the public was aware of this that they would not have voted for him due to this shortcoming. He would wear very long pants and his braces were painted black to help disguise his disability. He would also address the public while seated in his automobile. President Roosevelt physical impairment in no way affected his performance in representing this county. It is a shame that society is judgmental and narrow when it deals with the disabled. Watching this short film opens your eyes on how we may or may not be The issues of this film are important because they address things that are still around today. They may have improved but, deep down people still have these beliefs and thoughts. There are laws and policies put into place to protect the disabled from being discriminated against. First of all that politics are deceitful. It may have worked to the advantage of the handicapped president, but it was not fair to himself or the public. This has no bearing on how he performed his duties however, it goes to show that trickery has been around for a long time. Another issue this film has shown that having a physical disability can cause prejudice and you may not be afforded the same opportunities as others. The role in external societal pressures have in......

...Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis Mary Hoffman COMM/315 March 3, 2014 Dr. Jody Kehle Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis Diversity is a term that has grown in its use over the years. Simply put, the term refers to all of the ways in which people are different and unique. These include each individual, groups of people, and cultural differences (Bucher, 2010). So often, our society judges people by outer appearance (for example: color of hair, color of eyes, and clothes you wear), the social groups people are associated with, the home/neighborhood you live in, the car you drive, and even the school you attended or graduated from. It’s just like judging a book by its cover. I think everyone does it a little, whether they mean to or not. During my review of the Myplace multimedia analysis on the University of Phoenix student web site, I noticed that began to look for superficial characteristics in the individuals photos to match the profile. Example 1: “I received my bachelor’s degree in English and worked as the managing editor of a weekly newspaper while pursuing my master’s degree in communications. Shortly after attaining my master’s, I worked for a large company as a graphic specialist before I began teaching for Axia College online.

Monsanto Place and Price Analysis

...Monsanto Place and Price Analysis Fundamentals of Marketing and Sales BUS3030 Pamela Vest PLACE Distribution Channels Monsanto, an agriculture company, creates, produces, and provides genetically modified seeds to farmers around the world. With the issues of agriculture, Monsanto is working to produce more, conserve more, and improving lives (Monsanto, 2014). As the world’s population grows and not enough of land suitable for agriculture, farmers must produce more. Farmer’s crops yield more, and are reducing water, nutrients, and energy by using the Monsanto seeds. Monsanto creates genetically modified seeds in labs, by taking two good parents and breeds them to produce an offspring plant that is suitable for a certain agricultural area. With manufacturing plants, seed production facilities, and research centers scattered around the world, Monsanto distribution channels are focused around the geographic area near these facilities. Monsanto produces the seeds in their plants and must produce and distribute enough to meet the weekly high demands of farmers. With the precise timing the production and distribution plans due to the high demand, make for a more credible business approach. Monsanto manufacturing plants lack the storage spaces for the seeds, resulting in Monsanto having to use Public Storage facilities. Once at the public storage facilities, seeds are then delivered to distributor warehouse, and then they are delivered to retailers, whole sellers,......

My Place - the Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis

...My Place - The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis Human diversity is a social and psychological reality. Diversity refers to the identification of the person for whom each is as it is and not as we would like. His identity. This recognition is what sets human dignity. So is talking about diversity of identity. Identity is what allows us to distinguish ourselves from others. Who we are. Every aspect of that identity puts us in a human group. The language we speak, the things we eat, our hobbies, our physical or mental characteristics or history with which we identify are some aspects of that identity. The multimedia emulator "My Place" is a tool that shows how people just see the look or a brief summary of its history, a person labeled. Although for me it is very important not only to evaluate the book by the cover. The exercise of matching people with their biographies was very interesting and educational well as curious. Often my biggest problem was pairing race with the site of origin. He did not remember and with the global mixing is not only a German white with blue eyes for example. It can be any descent and born there. Just as religions that have spread worldwide an Islamic person is not just a Catholic Arab. We are all unique and increasingly mixing cultures have created a global citizen. Personally different viewpoints are good in all cases, whether in information systems or any other profession. A profile that caught my attention was that Tammy did not......

In Hiding

...Joyce Carol Oates’ short story “In hiding” is about a woman who is working as a poet, translator and part-time college teacher. Furthermore, she is a single Mother of a fifteen-year-old son. Suddenly she finds herself in an unusual relationship whit an inmate at Kansas State Penitentiary for Men in Fulham, Kansas who is sentenced to life. They have never met in real life and suddenly she just receives a letter from a man who goes from being number AT339I4 to Woody. He sends her poems and diary excerpts because he wants to be a writer himself. Their odd relationship starts to grow. It is not romantic or sexual, but it is described as they are dating in a strange way. He tells her a lot about himself and she is holding back. “…he would know a good deal about her. More than se was comfortable whit him knowing, in fact.” When he doesn’t write to her as much as he did before she starts wondering: “Had he found another correspondent?” Even though, she is holding back, she still kind of describes that their relationship is special to her and not just an exchange of poetry. “She thought I should break this off with him. This isn’t a wise thing.” The individualization is seen many times in the story. First of all we never get her name which really shows that she don’t have any identity. Woody makes her question a lot of things especially the question about whether she is a racist or not. “She wondered if she was, unknowingly, a racist?” This question shows that that there......

The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis

...Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis University of Phoenix, Fresno, Ca Myplace: The Place for Diversity Multimedia Analysis Diversity has always been open to various interpretations. Richard Bucher (2010) points out that because we are all unique and different in our own way there is no one universally agreed upon definition of diversity. Historically, diversity has largely been defined in terms of race and gender. The definition that best sums up my understanding of diversity is that it is a reality created by individuals and groups from a broad spectrum of demographic and philosophical differences. The list of these differences is endless and apart from the major differences of race and gender, it also encompasses a myriad of other characteristics such as religion, marital status, political beliefs, education, military status, lifestyle, social class, appearance and personality. These differences can be visible or hidden as demonstrated in the Myplace: The Place for Diversity multimedia. A very small percentage of our diversity differences seem to be visible until you get to know the other person. Race, ethnicity, age, attitude or gender are dimensions that are visible to the naked eye. For example, a person with darker skin is different from a person with lighter skin color. The same applies to other blatantly obvious physical attributes like gender which allows us to pick out males from females. In the multimedia presentation there is Michelle...

In Hiding

...In Hiding The identity plays a big part for each person, and many people are not sure about their identity. Who are they? Why do people like me? Where should I fit in? These questions are big questions that many are reflecting over. In the short story “In Hiding” by Joyce Carol Oates, we are introduced to a single mother with identity problems and low self-esteem, this make her life hard and therefore she is trying to hide from it. A divorced lonely mother, who is working as a poet, translator, and a college teacher, is the main character in the story. Suddenly she receives poetry from a black prisoner named Woodson Johnston, Jr. He is an inmate from Kansas State Penitentiary for Men in Fulham, Kansas where he is sentenced to life. The lonely mother has never met Woody, which is his nickname, and has no relations to him. The reason why Woody is starting to mail to her is because he wants to become a poet, and therefore he hopes that she can help him. The relationship is neither tied up with romantic- nor sexual emotions. Later on the relationship between them is developing and there are indications of she starts to feel something for Woody. “She ceased answering his letters. He continued writing to her, but at increasing intervals. (Had he found another correspondent?” (P.3, l. 103-105”) Her thoughts about Woody have changed and something deeper than just poetry is going on now. She is very confused about many things in her life. The hidden relationship is one of them...

She also had thirteen piercing and eleven tattoos that had special meaning to them. Looking at Jenna I would have never thought she even had a bachelor’s degree. I judged her by the tattoos and the way she was dressed. My judgement wasn’t accurate. When I looked at the profiles I didn’t pick Jenna, I picked the gentlemen in the sweater because he looked like a college student. But I was wrong, I see now how I prejudged Jenna because of her appearance. I didn’t look beyond her appearance. Kim-was the first person to graduate from high school in her family. She came from a lower class family, and was told that people from poor families never graduate from high school. Kim has achieved her master’s degree in educational media technology from Eastern Michigan Universities. I over looked Kim, and picked the girl that was sitting by the tree.

Information Hiding - Steganography

...Information Hiding – Steganography Steganography Types and Techniques Abstract— Information hiding has been one of the most crucial element of information technology in recent years. Unlike Cryptography, Steganography does not only keep the content of information secret, its also keeps the existence of the information secret. This is achieved by hiding information behind another information. This paper gives an overview of Steganography and its techniques, types, and also its advantages and disadvantages. Keywords-component; steganography; information hiding; security; confidentiality; techniques. INTRODUCTION Steganography help hides the fact that communication is taking place by hiding some information behind another information thereby making the communication invisible. The origin of the word “steganography” is from the Greek words “steganos” and “graphia” which is interpreted as “covered” and “writing” respectively thereby defining steganography as “covered writing”. Steganography and cryptography are both part of information hiding but neither alone is without flaws. The goal of steganography is defeated once the hidden message is found or noticed even while still in the original message (carrier). For safely transmission of hidden messages or information in steganography, multimedia files like audio, video and images are mostly used has the carrier or cover source. METHODOLOGY The Methodology used for this paper is based on the...

...amateur activities of the Soviet intelligentsia, namely mass backpacking movement and the students' song movement of 1950s and 1960s. Many bards performed their songs in small groups of people using a Russian guitar, rarely if ever would they be accompanied by other musicians or singers. Though, bards using piano or accordion are also known. Those who became popular held modest concerts. The first nationwide-famous bards (starting their career in 1950s) are traditionally referred to as the First Five: Mikhail Ancharov, Alexander Gorodnitsky, Novella Matveyeva, Bulat Okudzhava, Yuri Vizbor. In the 1960s, they were joined by Victor Berkovsky, Yuliy Kim, Sergey Nikitin, etc. In the course of 1970s, the shift to the classical 6-string guitar took place, and now, a Russian guitar is a rare bird with the bards. In the same period, the movement of KSP (Kluby Samodeyatelnoy Pesni – amateur song fan clubs) emerged, providing the bards with highly educated audience, and up to the end of 1980s being their key promotion engine. Bards were rarely permitted to record their music, partly given the political nature of many songs, partly due to their vague status in the strictly organised state-supported show business establishment of the USSR. As a result, bard tunes usually made their way around as folk lore, from mouth to mouth, or via the copying of amateur recordings (sometimes referred as magnitizdat) made at concerts, particularly those songs that were of political nature. Bard poetry......
