Dream Chaser Ferdinand Once upon a time, in a gear city lived a young gear called Ferdinand. He was made by the best material in the world, his body was strong, shining and in a perfect shape of a circle. Therefore he could trundle so fast that no one in the country was faster than him. Like most of the good runners in the gear world, Ferdinand began to look forward to going to the gear haven, where people said that there lived all the best runners in the world. The only way he could reach the gear haven was through the endless path in the outskirt of the city. So with great passion, the Ferdinand hit his road. Just as the name endless path implied, there was a long way for Ferdinand to go. Day by day he just kept trundling very fast and couldn’t see where the end was. The lily on the road side spoke to him:“Ferdinand, please stop and take a rest, flowers are blossoming!” But Ferdinand didn’t listen to her, he just kept running, the wind he made bent the lily. The parrot on the sky spoke to him: “Ferdinand, please stop and take a rest, birds are singing!” But Ferdinand didn’t listen to him; he continued his endless journey. The dust he made stained the parrot’s feather. One day, when Ferdinand was trundling through a tough road, he was knocked by gravel; he lost one of his parts and could no longer run so fast. Nervously Ferdinand began to find his lost part. He asked the lily: “Hi lily, could you please tell me where my lost part is?” “Sorry I can’t, but I can show you the blossom of the most beautiful flower.” aid lily. Ferdinand didn’t get his lost part, but he saw the most beautiful blossom. Then he asked the parrot: “Hi parrot, could you please tell me where my lost part is?” “Sorry I can’t, but I can give you one piece my most gorgeous feather.” said the parrot. Again Ferdinand didn’t…...

...Dreams can be both fascinating and baffling, which is why they have garnered attention from philosophers, artists, writers and poets for thousands of years. Only fairly recently in history have researchers began to scientifically study the dreaming process. While people still disagree about the exact purpose of dreams and the possible interpretations of dream content, this area remains a topic of interest for both psychologists, researchers, students and anyone who wonders about the reasons behind their dreams. Dream Meanings and Interpretation: Do you often find yourself exactly why you dreamed what you did, especially after having particularly strange dreams? Despite the research and interest in dreaming, no one yet fully understands how to interpret dream meanings. Sigmund Freud’s theory of dreams contributed a great deal to the general interest in dream interpretation. Books and dream dictionaries have helped ensure that the topic remains popular today. Dreams can be mysterious, but understanding the meaning of our dreams can be downright baffling. The content of our dreams can shift suddenly, feature bizarre elements or frighten us with terrifying imagery. The fact that dreams can be so rich and compelling is what causes many to believe that there must be some meaning to our dreams. Theories about Dreams: While many theories exist to explain why we dream, no one yet fully understands their purpose, let alone how to interpret the meaning of dreams. In fact, some......

The Dream

...The American Dream The phenomenon of the American Dream is the substance of almost all American icons, and actually achieving the American Dream is the ideal aspiration of not only Americans but immigrants as well. Some people would argue that the American Dream actually really consists only of being able to buy and own a home, but to me it is so much more! The American Dream named, because it seemingly exists only here in America, for very ambitious people to be a distinguished success through their own hard work and determination. People constantly try to achieve their own dreams. Some people, already here in America, chase their dream by wanting to be a bigger success than their parents. The others who have immigrated to this country chase their very own dream, by giving up all they had just to come and have the opportunity to succeed.  The American Dream is something that is mainly achieved with hard work and determination. First of all, you cannot have a dream without working hard at it; this definitely applies to the American Dream. Whether you are just looking for a job or working a job hard work is something that you need, without it achieving your dream becomes a lot more difficult. Hard work will also lead to more promotions and more successes a lot quicker; these tend to be apart of the average American Dream. The other big reason hard work is needed is if you do not exude a hard working attitude a lot of opportunities will pass you by. With missed......

...Through doing the research about dreams I have learned a vast about of important information from how to write an annotated bibliography, how to use VCU’s library system online, how to critically dissect as well as review my paper and the most important what different people believe a dream means to them. Once again my knowledge of VCU’s online library research system came in handy. Because I knew the correct ways to search of information through this data base it helped eliminate unneeded information. The writing workshops gave me and in depth look and how to read a paper from the readers point of view versus just the writer’s voice. It also gave me a chance to see how other people would create such a paper and gave me tips on where I was lacking strength. Having someone else read and criticized your work humbles you as well as gives you room to grow as a writer. Along with the workshop having you look over my paper and giving me your feedback helped be discover ways I could elaborate and fix my claim. Since this is the second time I have written and read research on the topic of dreams I feel like I have a stronger understanding of how beneficial dreams are to your lives. If I have dream that frightens me I know have a idea of where it came from and how it relates to my day to day life because I have read so many different views and opinions on dream analysis. Learning about the different ways people view the ‘meaning’ of a dream really gives me a new......

Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria

...Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria Franz Ferdinand was a Royal Prince of Hungary and of Bohemia, as well as an Archduke of Austria-Este, Austro-Hungarian. Born on December 18, 1863, the eldest son of Archduke Karl-Ludwig von Habsburg and his wife, Princess Annunziata di Borbone, Franz Ferdinand was third in line to the thrown of the Austro-Hungarian Empire upon his birth. After his cousin Crown Prince Rudolf committed suicide in 1889 and his father died in 1896, Franz Ferdinand became the heir of his aging uncle Emperor Franz Josef. He eloped with Countess Sophie Chotek on July 1, 1900, but this marriage was considered unequal and they were forced to renounce rights of rank and succession for their three children. The Archduke had a distinguished military career, gaining promotions to captain, major, colonel and general. In 1913 he was named Inspector General of Austria-Hungary’s Army. An avid supporter of the Empire’s Navy, Franz Ferdinand has been described as energetic, reckless, proud, mistrusting and moody. Dispite his military status, Ferdinand’s relationship with Emperor Franz Josef was laden with friction. Often disagreeing with the Empire’s leaders, he was not very popular. Politically, Franz Ferdinand aligned himself with centralism and Catholic conservatism. Striving to give more freedom to ethnic groups in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, he supported the Czechs as well as the Croatians and Bosnians. The Archduke also promoted federalism that would make the......

Collier's the Chaser

...You Get What You Pay For John Collier’s “The Chaser” is based on a young man’s desire to be loved as opposed to an elderly man’s extreme perception and experience of the outcome of experimenting with matters of the heart. Collier’s story has two characters: Alan Austen, the searcher for a special mixture to possess Diana’s heart and an elderly man, who makes his money when men like Alan return for the cleaner after they force love. As the story develops, we learn that love cannot be bought. There is symbolism between the term chaser and glove cleaner when the old man says to Alan, “ ‘Call it a glove-cleaner if you like,’ said the old man indifferently. ‘Maybe it will clean gloves. I have never tried. One might call it a life cleaner. Life needs cleaning sometimes’ ” (Collier 1). The symbolization is that the life-cleaner is a poison that some people have returned for to get rid of the love-potion induced person.  The definition of chaser according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary is “a mild drink taken after hard liquor” (Merriam-Webster.com). The chaser drink reduces the severity of the taste of hard liquor, like the life cleaner, reduces the severity of suffocating relationships. One quote which showcases the double meaning is when the old man says, “ ‘For indifference,’ said the old man ‘they substitute devotion, for scorn, adoration. Give one tiny measure of this to the young lady-its flavor is imperceptible in orange juice, soup, or cocktails-and however gay...

...Dream is held in the area of our mind when we are asleep. It happens to all. Often, dream is helpful. A mathematician often gets the right method to -solve a difficult sum in his dream. Some people feel that they are taking delicious dish and sweet fruits in their dream. Sometimes a very interesting drama is enacted in our dream and that makes us laugh in our deep sleep. Sometimes we also cry due to the influence of a tragic dream. Dreams may be real or imaginary. When we think about a thing or an event very much in our practical life, a dream concerning that thing or that event touches our subconscious mind in our slumber. Once I had a dream about a strange animal. In my dream I was walking through a desert. I met an animal. I had not seen that animal before. When it came to me, I asked him his name. He said that his name was dinosaur. Still I could not believe my eyes. Because dinosaurs as a species are already extinct from the world. It was a baby dinosaur. So it did not harm me. Then I took care of the baby dinosaur. It grew up. It became my friend. It was indeed an admirable friendship. Once a drought affected our locality. We got little rain. There was no crop. People were starving. The dinosaur also could not get water and food. Still it did not break the friendship. It went wherever I went. One day it narrated its sufferings and cried. I realised that the dinosaur was really on the verge of death. But I was helpless. It was a desert where water was......

Whether it's a good dream or a nightmare is up to your mind, but there must be some reasoning behind dreams, right? Everyone may know the main idea of a dream, but few may know that the explanations behind dreams are far more intricate than it just being a simple random thought in your mind. Can you remember the last dream you had? Maybe you could fly or were falling down an endless dark tunnel. Perhaps you were awakened by a horrific dream in the middle of the night Sigmund Freud’s Theory 1 - Finding an unused room What it means: The rooms in a house represent different aspects of your character, so finding an unused room suggests that you’re discovering a talent that you were previously unaware of 2 - Out-of-control vehicle The vehicle represents your ability to make consistent progress toward a specific objective, so in waking life, you may feel that you don’t have enough control over your road to success. 3- Falling What it means: Feeling yourself falling in a dream indicates......

...and visualizing the following day's interview repeatedly in my mind. Since that was mostly the only (and last) thought I had before entering my REM cycle that night, the thought had continued into my unconscious state. My dream consisted of the next days events, mainly the interview. Vividly, I went through the routine of waking up to my alarm, getting showered and dressed, eating a balanced breakfast, and arriving to the office on time. Then, the dream had skipped forward to the moment the employer looking over my resume and asking me a set of questions. Afterwards, it had rewound the interview over and over again giving me different outcomes and questions each time showing the various possibilities. When I woke up I couldn't believe that it had been a dream it felt so real but thanks to the dream it prepared me for the real deal. I felt more confident and prepared to bite the bullet and get the job that I deserve. Re-enacting my dream, I woke up to my preset alarm almost to the exact routine I mentally prepared for: got showered and dressed (in the same outfit consisting of a dress shirt and pants I saw in my dream), ate a balanced breakfast, and arrived to the office on time remembering the possibilities of questions I was going to receive. This dream was an example of sleep fueling creativity and needing a nights rest to gather ones thoughts together. The dream's assistance with recollecting the responses I've prepared for the interviewer's inquiries and fortunately......

Storm Chasers Killed in Oklahoma

...Storm Chasers Killed in Oklahoma Tornado Storm Chasers Killed in Oklahoma Tornado Growing up in “Tornado Alley” we know the risks that come along with the Oklahoma tornados. There are many people that put their lives on the line every time one of these storms decide to make an appearance. Most of these individuals do this job because they enjoy studying these storms and want to do their part in informing the people of the possible destruction heading their way. A majority of these men and women get to come home to their families and tell of their wild experiences “riding out the tornado”, but for others, they are not as fortunate. This would be the last storm for Tim Samaras, Paul Samaras and Carl Young. (Allen & Trotta, 2013). The purpose of this article is to make people aware of the dangers associated with chasing tornados. This article was also written to give remembrance to the brave men who put their lives on the line to research these deadly storms. Three brave men lost their lives doing what they loved to do. Unfortunately these are some of the risks that come with the job. One of the main problems that we often hear about with storm chasing is inexperience. A lot of people get severely injured or even die due to not seeking shelter, rather trying to get video and pictures of the twister. Even the most experienced sometimes suffer consequences when not fully prepared for an unpredictable tornado. These skilled storm chasers usually receive......

Dreams

...Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.[1] The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest, throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is called oneirology.[2] Dreams mainly occur in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep—when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages of sleep. However, these dreams tend to be much less vivid or memorable.[3] The length of a dream can vary; they may last for a few seconds, or approximately 20–30 minutes.[3] People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. The average person has three to five dreams per night, but some may have up to seven dreams in one night.[4] The dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full eight-hour night sleep, most dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM.[5] In modern times, dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind. They range from normal and ordinary to overly surreal and bizarre. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the...

...claimed that, “There is a great deal of work to do and it calls for sacrifice and determination on the part of those who are leading.” Colin Powell and President Barack Obama are two African American men who had to overcome much adversity to achieve their elite status in American politics. Both of their journeys varied greatly with Powell serving as Secretary of State under George W. Bush and Obama becoming the first African-American Commander-in-Chief. They also chronicle their journeys with autobiographies, with Obama recording this passage of his life in his 1995 independently written autobiography Dreams from My Father, while Powell recollects stories from his life with the assistance of Joseph E. Persico in the 1995 book My American Journey. On an important side note, both of these books were written before they have reached their respective positions in politics. Obama wrote Dreams from My Father when he was still only a state Senator in Illinois, awhile before he even considered running for President. While Powell wrote My American Journey where at the time he was already Powell was already a 4-star general which preceded the events that led to his appointment as Secretary of State, where he was the first African-American to hold the position and gave his notorious speech in front on the United Nations dealing with the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, which dramatically changed the public’s perception about him. Each story instead focuses on how they were brought......

...Theories of Counseling 11/24/14 Personal Experience Paper #3 When writing down my dreams I found this to be quite interesting. As a child I use to attend counseling to help me stop dreaming because of the nightmares I use to have. Anyhow after my counseling I never seemed to dream anymore and when I did I could never seem to remember them. Unlike my dreams before my counseling as a child (which I can remember quit vividly and still remember them to this day) dreams now seem to become mixed with memories of real life events—now I just assume any memory that I can’t mentally verify as a past dream and that I must be experiencing déjà vu. Never the less, I wrote down two dreams. The first one was a lucid dream—I know this because I had the dream after I laid back down from waking up to use the bathroom. I did try to interact with the dream but normally once I become fully aware that I’m dreaming I wake up shortly after. Another issue I had was that when I go back and read what my dream was about it is very scattered; and I have a problem understanding my writing as well as remembering the dream at after re-reading days later what I had wrote. When I try to interpret my first dream all I get from it is that about 50% of it deals with what I do on a day to day bases. I work in a call center and most of my dream dealt with me in work talking on the phone to customers. The other 50% of that dream dealt with my family. I’m not really close to my relatives and I dreamed that I......

The Dream

...The Dream. Copyright 2007 Eve Care I had a dream... One day I would open my eyes or wake up and I would no longer need smoking to keep me calmed and grounded and in that state of comfort. I would be cured. I would then walk to the trash bin with the smokes I had on hand and ditch them, along with the old habit with total good ridence and gratitude that I finally had smoked enough to cure myself. Wow. What a lie. And that was really true. I did have that dream. I dreamt it wherever I'd go. And it didn't matter where I went. I always needed a smoke. And with every smoke I had I would wonder, will this one be my last? Will I finally have enough in me to cure once and for all? It was also a way of holding onto a fantasy. Dreams do come true, but not in the way you may think they do sometimes. My dream of being smoke-free came true, but not in the way I dreamed it would. I had the most illusive dream. It is much like, the American Dream. Because each person is different and have different ideas about how to live an ethical way of life without damaging life around us now, and it is us who need to make the change, to be that change, we wish to see in the world. There are lots of lies that are told to us throughout our lives. most of mine came in the first 30 years of my life. It is hard to break free from all of those lies. They have become quite ingrained within us and when we go to release something that we have healed, another thing pops up and thus continues......

Dream

...Dreams are very different from waking life, but it is extremely difficult clearly to define in what the difference consists. When we are dreaming, we are nearly always convinced that we are awake, and in some cases real experiences have been mistaken for dreams. The latter mistake forms the subject of a celebrated Spanish play called Life a Dream, and of an amusing story in the Arabian Nights, in which a poor man is for a jest treated as a mighty monarch, and it is contrived that he should afterwards think that all the honourable treatment he had actually received was merely a vivid dream. Sometimes even after waking, we may be doubtful whether our dream was a reality or not, especially if we happen to fall asleep in our chair and do not remember the circumstance of having fallen to sleep. Of course this doubt can only arise when there has been nothing in our dream that seems impossible to our wakened mind. It is, however, only in rare cases that a dream exactly copies the experience of our waking hours. As a rule, in our sleep all kinds of events seem to happen which in our waking hours we should know to be impossible. In our dreams we see and converse with friends who are at the other side of the world or have been long dead. We may even meet historical or fictitious characters that we have read about in books. We often lose our identity and dreams that we are someone else, and in the course of a single dream may be in turn several different persons. Space and time to the......
