Online learning in various forms is gaining popularity but lacks the adaptability required to hold the learners attention due to its rigid structure. Though animation and powerful graphics enhance the learning content, delivery of content according to learners need is yet to become a reality. It is not possible to build a l earning system that can satisfy every learner as some people respond best when they see basic facts on a clean page, others when they have a lot of charts and graphs at their fingertips.

African Literature as a Form of Protest

...The definition of "protest literature" is obviously fluid. Deconstructionists might argue that all literary writing is ultimately a form of protest. Social and historical critics might argue that literary protests must contain a specific political aim, such as changing a law. A Marxist critic might argue that literary protest should disturb the social order in terms of the relationship between social classes. A feminist critic might argue that protest does or does not promote a gender bias. A psychologist might see literary protest as a manifestation of the subconscious. A traditional literary critic might argue the moral relationship between aesthetics and the political message of protest literature. In African Literature culture and experience rather than language becomes the essence of literature. Subalternism is clearly evident in African writing as pattern of “slave narrative” writing is seen. The ‘other’ or the colony is mostly representational. The informative and representative function is seen in Leopold Sedar Senghor’s writing as it shows that Africans share certain distinctive and innate characteristics, values and aesthetics. In the poem ‘New York’, Senghor argues that the black community of Harlem should ‘Listen to the far beating of your nocturnal heart, rhythm/ and blood of the drum’ and ‘let the black blood flow into/ your blood’. The word nocturnal is interesting because it refers to the image of night. By using the imagery of night, Senghor is asserting......

Children’s Literature Represents, According to Valerie Krips, an Act of ‘Returning to a Past in Which the Problems of Adulthood Are by and Large Unknown.’ Is This the Source of the Pleasure of Children’s Literature for Adults?

...Children’s literature is obviously a genre which is aimed primarily at children. Authors use a variety of techniques whilst writing books for this genre in order to make sure that they are reaching out to their target audience. One example of such a technique is the use of short sentences. These are used in order to keep the reading relatively simplistic, yet double up to make for a dramatic, or tense part of a story. Another one of these techniques is merely keeping the wording of the story simple. This not only makes reading easier, but also allows the reader, mainly a child, to read quickly, and develop a clear understanding of exactly what is happening in the novel or story. During this essay, I am going to consider Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban of the Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling, and Peter and Wendy of the Peter Pan series by J.M Barrie Any book in the Harry Potter series may be the perfect choice for such an essay due to the fact they are all unbelievably popular with readers of all ages. “As of June 2011, the book series has sold about 450 million copies, making it the best-selling book series in history, and has been translated into 67 languages.” As Harry Potter himself is the same age as the target audience, it allows the children reading the story to relate to him, and wish and wonder what it would be like to be like Harry Potter, and overcome the challenges that he has to in his wizarding world. In my experience, books within the genre of......

The Language of Classification

...THE LANGUAGE OF CLASSIFICATION State Schools in England and Wales The vast majority of children in Britain (87%) attend state (local authority) schools which provide compulsory education from the age of 5 to 16 years. These schools can be classified according to the age range of the pupils and the type of education provided. Basically, there are two types of school, primary and secondary, although in some area there are also middle schools. Primary schools cater for children aged 5-11, and secondary school for ages 11-16 (and in some areas up to 18 years). Primary schools can be sub-divided into infant schools (for ages 5-7) and junior schools (for ages 7-11). Secondary schools are normally of one type for all abilities, known as comprehensive schools. More than 90% of children in state schools attend this kind of school. In some areas middle schools exist as an extra level after primary school for children aged 8 or 9 to 12 or 13. Pupils then transfer to comprehensive schools. In a very small number of areas, pupils may be grouped according to their ability and selected by means of an examination at the age of 11. In these areas, grammar schools cater for those who pass the exam. Those who fail go to another secondary school. When pupils reach the age of 16 there may be three choices open to them. Firstly, they may leave school. Secondly, they may stay on at school for two more years if it has a Sixth Form. Thirdly, they may transfer to a Sixth Form College, a......

Accurate and simple data classification task can help the clustering of large dataset appropriately. In this paper we have experimented and suggested a simple ANN based classification models called as Minimal ANN ( MANN) for different classification problems. The GA is used for optimally finding out the number of neurons in the single hidden layered model. Further, the model is trained with Back Propagation (BP) algorithm and GA (Genetic Algorithm) and classification accuracies are compared. It is revealed from the simulation that our suggested model can be a very good candidate for many applications as these are simple with good performances.

Korean Literature

...KOREAN LITERATURE Korean literature is the body of literature produced by Koreans, mostly in the Korean language and sometimes in Classical Chinese. For much of Korea's 1,500 years of literary history, it was written in Hanja. It is commonly divided into classical and modern periods, although this distinction is sometimes unclear. Korea is home to the world's first metal and copper type, world's earliest known printed document and the world's first featural script. ------------------------------------------------- General overview In general, the written arts have a tradition in epigraphic inscriptions on stones, in early tombs, and on rarely found bamboo pieces that formed early books. Repeated invasions and sacking of the east and west capitals, as well as the difficulty in preserving written texts on bamboo, make works before 1000 rare. Those works were entirely written in Chinese characters, the language of scholars, but of course incorporated Korean words and mindset. Medieval scholars in Korea learned and employed written Chinese as western schoolmen learned Latin: as a lingua franca for the region. It helped cultural exchanges extensively. Notable examples of historical records are very well documented from early times, and as well Korean books with movable type, often imperial encyclopedias or historical records, were circulated as early as the 7th century during the Three Kingdoms era from printing wood-blocks; and in the Goryeo era the world's first metal......

This man blew Alexis away because it was just so infrequent for a man of this nature to be accompanied with the semi business. To this day these types of truck drivers are still very uncommon, but when they enter the building, they always manage to leave a lasting impression. Unlike the amicable experience that is observed with the clean cuts, the rude grumpy old hags can turn your happy mood upside down so quick it can be jaw dropping. The grumpy jerks are by far one of the worst professional truck drivers to deal with; these drivers will ignore every word said to them, cuss you out, and slam their forms of payments on the counter. The big bosses want the employees of Pilot Flying J to remember that the drivers sit for hours waiting on a load and don’t encounter any personal interaction for hours, possibly days. But, that information is rapidly lost anytime this specific group of drivers are present. One of the first signs of knowing a customer will qualify for this category is when they walk in the door yelling and complaining.
