Subject : Progress on the Kingston Marathon Run
Introduction
At your request, I am submitting this progress report detailing the launching of a marathon in Kuala Lumpur. The purpose of this event is to create health awareness among Malaysians and to promote social role of sport. Besides that, it can be a platform for the multiracial community to interact with one another. This event will take place on 17th August 2014.
Past Progress
Drafting the route, distance and location
We had decided this event to take place on 17th of August, Sunday. Since Sunday is a public holiday, it is the most appropriate time of the week to hold an event to ensure people from all walks of life are able to participate and be a part of this event. We have decided to divide this event into 3 categories: 5km, 10km and 21km. Moreover, we had decided to locate the marathon around Merdeka Square at Kuala Lumpur. This location was chosen because there is an adequate amount of hotels, parking lots and it has an easy access for local and foreign participants as it has sufficient public transport to reach the place.

Determining the budget
The expected budget for this marathon is RM112,500. This is based on the expected participants of 3000 people. This budget layout had been approved by the management department. You can refer to Table 1 as our budget layout.

...A Simple Exchange of Niceties The short story “A Simple Exchange of Niceties” is a touch full story by Joanne Fedler. To get a good understanding to this short story, I will begin giving a quick recap. The short story is about a girl who gets pregnant, with a guy she rarely speaks with. The girl, who also is the narrator, does not want the baby herself, and wants to get rid of it. But the narrator decides to keep the baby for a reason. One day while she was sitting on her favorite bench in the park, a woman joins her. When the woman starts talking to the girl, the girl shows her no interest. The narrator only wished to be alone. Suddenly the woman begins to cry, and tells the narrator that she cannot have babies. The narrator tries to comfort her, and tells her that it just was not meant to be. The woman leaves and tells the narrator that she might see her again at this same bench. The narrator decides to keep this baby, not for her own purpose but for the woman. Now I would like to dig into the text, and try to analyze and interpret this short story. I will focus on the narrators view on herself and others, the importance of the bench for the narrator, the main theme/-s, and the narrator’s language. I would also focus a bit about the ending of the story. The narrator seems to be very lonely, and depressed....

English Assignment - the American Dream

...1. Give an outline of how the American Dream is interpreted in texts 2, 3 and 4 Arnold Schwarzenegger recalls lessons from 25 years as a U.S. citizen – learn English, Participate in Politics and Give Back. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s text focuses on immigrants that came to America, to achieve ”The American Dream”. The American Dream from Arnold’s view is not about what you can acquire from America, as an immigrant, but what you can do to give something back. His suggestions for giving something back is to first learn the English language, then contribute to the political course and at last help the community by donating, volunteering, mentoring a child, participating in a program, helping the less fortunate, doing community service, etc. He rounds up by saying: “There is no second-tier citizenship. You are an American, period. With hard work, learning English and getting involved, there is no limit on what you can achieve” Whose American Dream is it, anyway? Anya Kamenetz’s article primarily emphasizes the economic side of the American Dream. The main problem she proposes is that the Americans are a lot more unenthusiastic about their lives now, then at any time in the past 50 years, probably because of the deteriorating economy and the high expenses for supply of essential resources. One question that was raised in the article is if there’s a link between wealth and happiness. Anya refers to researcher Daniel Gilbert who discovered that once an average person earns more......

English 215 Assignment 1

...English 215: Research and Writing Assignment 1: Research Topics With Explanation Professor Reagan January 16, 2013 There were many research topics that caught my attention, so choosing was a little difficult for me. The first topic I chose is “Should regulations be changed regarding genetically altering plants and/or animals”. This topic is a very serious matter to me, and I am taking it in the context that it is regarding genetically modified plants and animals that were intended to be used for food. I am a vegetarian and I do believe we all have the right to know what we are consuming. Genetically modified food can be dangerous, and by the time we find out how dangerous, it may be too late. The audience for this topic would be anyone who is health conscious, interested in animal rights, or just interested in knowing the truth about what they are really consuming. Two credible sources I would use to write my paper would be the Forbes article (http://www.forbes.com/sites/emilywillingham/2012/12/07/what-you-need-to-know-about-gm-foods-is-half-the-story/) and the Human Genome Project Information site (http://www.ornl.gov/sci/techresources/Human_Genome/elsi/gmfood.shtml) My preliminary thesis statement would be: “With such a strong focus lately in obesity and calorie consumption, it seems as if many people are becoming more aware of their health and eating habits. While a salad may be a very good option for a healthy diet, does anyone really know what has happened to......

Matches between small fighting robot machines are popular enough to be on television, but in "Real Steel," these robots are towering, computer-controlled machines with nimble footwork and instinctive balance. (In the real world, 'bots can be rendered helpless on their backs, like turtles.) Hugh Jackman stars as Charlie Kenton, a former boxer who is now hanging onto the fringes of the fight game as the owner-operator of a ramshackle robot he tours with. It's no match for the competition, and when the desperate Charlie replaces it with another battered veteran, it can't even outfight a real bull.If the movie were all robot fights it might be as unbearable as well, a Transformers title. Drama enters in the person of Charlie's son, Max Kenton (Dakota Goyo), a smart, resilient pre-teen who, like all kids, seems to have been genetically programmed to understand computers, video games and all allied fields. Charlie......

...Assignment 1: The Story of English "A English Speaking World" English as a world language has developed through different periods of time and in different places. English was and is still spoken in great numbers in countries across the world. English has branched out into different dialects, with slang included especially in the American form of English. English also bears a sort of social class, where those who speak English have a certain upper class appearance. It also creates a common language which helps business, economies and people connect better. It has become a dominant language and serves as a lingua franca for the world. The popularity of English has allowed the world to communicate at a higher efficiency when compared to a world with no dominate language. But his plan did not work and India along with China has seen an ever increasing number of people learning and speaking English. The popularity and necessity of English is seen in India government systems and everyday life. India's civil system is predominantly in English rather than Hindi. Out of 137 typist at a civil court, only one types in Hindi while the rest in English. This is necessary for smooth transactions to occur in India's systems, which we have seen from examples in class. Without a lingua franca, communication between India's different regions would be very difficult. In India there are 14 different variations of Hindi, with English as a common language miscommunication is......

...2. Define and clarify three characteristics of Emersonianism/Transcendentalism Three main characteristics of transcendentalism as defined by Emerson himself in “The Transcendentalist,” are; respect for intuitions, withdrawal from labor and competition, and pursuit of a critical, solitary lifestyle. Transcendentalism can also be defined as a pursuit of the truth. Fundamentally, truth can be anything that an individual believes to be correct, based on his or her own intuition. All generally accepted social beliefs are to be tossed aside and one is to follow his or her instincts. Emerson rejected labor and any outcomes of labor. He did not believe in competition or government but rather in a self propelled world. Living a solitary lifestyle is thought of as an important feature in transcendentalism. Simplicity is said to stem from self-dependency. “Society is good when it does not violate me; but best when it is likest to solitude” (Emerson). It is believed that is one lives a simple life; all will go well for them. These are just three of the many principles and characteristics of transcendentalism. 4. Explain this statement in Thoreauvian terms: “Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.” This quote taken from Thoreau’s “Civil Obedience,” is a statement that has made a large impression on countless. Thoreau believed that if the government is committing unjust actions, one should put his or her entire......

...Lisa Neumann Student ID # AC0700552 English Composition II EN130 Assignment #3 Process Analysis Essay 12/18/14 Page 1 How to prepare my favorite dish: Roast Pork Authentic Puerto Rican Style My all time absolutely favorite dish is Pernil ( pronounced perr-neel), translated from Spanish is Roast Pork Shoulder. Though it is a time consuming item to make, the recipe is fairly simple and the finished product, a succulent tasty Pork Shoulder, is very much worth the wait. Below I will advise of the preparation techniques and ingredients needed to make this mouth watering dish. This recipe will serve approximately 8 people. The approximate active preparation time is 20 minutes and the approximate inactive preparation time is about 5 hours 30 minutes, plus marinating time. I've also included the nutritional value per serving in this paragraph as well. (Serving size: 1 {229g}, servings per recipe 8, calories 896, calories from fat 612, cholesterol 268 mg, sodium 633 mg, carbohydrates 1g, dietary fiber 0.1g, sugars 0g, protein 65g). A time saving tip I use and like, is to gather ALL my ingredients first, and placed them in a nearby handy location, so they are all there and ready to use. Note that all the ingredients I use are from GOYA, with the exception of the salt and pernil, which is best gotten from your local butcher. If you don't have local butcher, a supermarket bought pork shoulder will do. The ingredients are listed below: * 1 skin on, bone in......

...The Decline of the West Every family has its own problems, and sometimes we just feel like our own is the worst. But we never think about how others may feel, and there is always someone somewhere that has it far worse than what you do. However it can be rough, and bad times feel like the universe is going down. The situation is actually only that you are going through a fase in your life, and that it will go over soon. But it might be difficult to realize that when you are in it. Some people also do not realize how important love and the bond in the family is. Nowadays people care way too much about material things and the blame is probably on the society. In the text, “The Decline of the West” by Hanif Kureishi, we see a family situation of a father who actually tries to do a lot for his family, but they do not appreciate it. We follow the family from the minute the father gets home from work, and then throughout the evening, so it is chronologically built up. Mike, who is the main character in the story, starts out by telling what he would wish the family would turn out to be, but then we start hearing about his real life, and what issues he is dealing with. We hear about the problem he has with his food, the boys and then in the end what problem he has with his wife. She is a very difficult wife, and not at all what he really wanted her to be. His dream-family is actually the right opposite of what they are. He describes it as, “he´d been looking forward to opening......

English 115 Assignment 1

...Vontesch Barnes “On Becoming a Writer” Strayer University – English 115 Assignment 1 “On Becoming a Writer” Russell Baker “On Becoming a Writer” conveyed how he had a dream to become a writer. The main point that I took from this passage was that things happen unexpectantly. If you have a dream entertain it, because you never know where your pursuit will lead you. Russell looked at writing as something that was done by only the rich. He never imagined that becoming a writer could be a career that he could potentially get paid from. What I took from this was that he treated writing as a hobby or something liked he liked to do. Although writing was Russell’s dream, he still only thought of it as an Interest until he met Mr. Fleagle. It seemed that even though he had not been taught by Mr. Fleagle, he already had a preset judgement of how he was going to be. “He was said to be stuffy, dull, and hopelessly out of date. To me he looked to be sixty or seventy and prim to a fault”. One point I got from this was that the answers to life’s mysteries, even your dreams may come in a form you wouldn’t expect. Russell didn’t like English, the assignments or writing papers for the class in general. After some time in Mr. Fleagle’s class he was given an assignment called “What I did on My Summer Vacation”. This is the assignment that eventually lead him to discover his passion for writing. Instead he wrote a paper titled “The Art of Eating Spaghetti”. Russell pulled from a......

...What it Means’ to be Canadian in the Twenty First Century What it means to be Canadian in the Twenty First Century When I think about the word Canada, I think of majestic mountain ranges, oceans surrounding us on the East, West and North Coasts of the Country. I think of a kind, gentle, peacemaker attitude in the people who live here. The vast amounts of natural resources we have and the knowledge of how lucky we are to live in this amazing country. Canada has always had the reputation of being the “good guy”. We have long taken a back seat to the United States in economy, lifestyle and growth of the economy, however, times are changing and Canada is emerging as a new world leader and is heading into the Twenty First Century as a strong country. Canada has always been a consistent and steady country, never too extreme in its political or economic views. This has never been truer than today, when we look at the economy of Europe and the United States over the past few years. While their financial situations are crumbling, Canada has remained stable during the economic downturn. The Business Insider (2011) named Canada sixth on the list of “The Countries that have the Best Quality of Life in the World.” Canada was ranked sixth because of factors such as income, work/life balance and life satisfaction. Canada has become a world leader in how it handles its economy and the stability that it has maintained. While the United States and Europe have watched their......

English 103 Essay 1 Assignment

...English 103 Essay 1 Assignment Argument: Hospital statistics regarding people who go to the emergency room after rollerskating accidents indicate the need for more protective equipment.  Within this group of people, 75 percent of those who had accidents in streets or parking lots were not wearing any protective clothing (helmets, knee pads, etc.) or any light-reflecting material (clip-on lights, glow-in-the-dark wrist pads, etc.).  Clearly, these statistics indicate that by investing in high-quality protective gear and reflective equipment, rollerskaters will greatly reduce their risk of being severely injured in an accident. Writing Task: How well reasoned and convincing is this argument?  In explaining your point of view, be sure to analyze the conclusion, the line of reasoning, and the use of evidence in the argument.  Also discuss what, if anything, would make the argument more sound and persuasive or would help readers better evaluate its conclusion. 2-3 pages typed, double-spaced Use Times New Roman 12 point font, 1” margins. Submit your essay to Turnitin.com and print out the Originality Report to bring to class on Monday (if possible) or Wednesday (at the latest).
