Analysis of Poem

...“To Autumn” It has been postulated that John Keats composed his poem, “To Autumn” after a stroll he had on an autumnal evening near the town of Winchester in Hampshire England. This poem is an ode in which Keats adeptly uses formal language, highly vivid and effective images along with the use of personification to describe three different aspects of autumn: its fruitfulness, its labour and its ultimate decline. Undoubtedly, Keats poem, “To Autumn” is a subtle and sophisticated one. Evidently, the title of the poem is different from that of other odes. Normally, an ode’s title begins with, “Ode to…” which provides a hint to certain characteristics of an ode; that is, being dignified and serious. However, the title of Keats, “To Autumn” suggests a less formal form of poetry and hints at intimacy. The level of intimacy is evident especially in the first stanza of the poem in which the sun and autumn is seen conspiring to bring about fruitfulness. Additionally, on the surface the poem seems like a mere description of the main characteristics of autumn’s human and animal activities, but can be interpreted as much more than that. Keats “To Autumn” consists of three stanzas corresponding to the classical divisions of strophe, antistrophe and epode. Each of the stanzas has eleven lines with variable rhyme scheme. The first stanza has a pattern of ABABCDEDCCE, while the second and third stanzas have a pattern of, ABABCDECDDE. However, there is uniformity in the first four lines......

...following on social networks and life satisfaction. Two different studies were conducted. The first studied the scale, scope, and nature of envious emotions related to Facebook use. The second study observed the role of envy and how it affects passive following on FB and life satisfaction. 584 Facebook users took online surveys, answering questions regarding emotions experienced while on and after using Facebook. Researchers asked open and closed-ended questions. The first question asked participants how they felt after they used Facebook. Researchers found that 46% of the sample reported positive feelings and the majority of negative emotions (36.9%) were boredom, anger, frustration. Envy was at the bottom of the list with only 1.2% of users admitting to it. The experimenters believed that people were reluctant to admit to being envious as it is socially unacceptable to envy others. The second question was asked as a general question rather than a direct question; what causes others to feel frustration on Facebook? Envy was the most frequent answer as 30% of the sample attributed envy as the cause of other people’s frustration. Question three was also worded as a general inquiry; what causes other people to feel envy on Facebook? Travel and leisure posts were linked to envy on FB (56.3%), social interaction was the second highest at 14.1%. The study found that envy is the mediator between...

Doas Paper

...To begin with Willy is not successful yet he embodies his definition of success. For example on page 57 when Linda is telling her boys how irresponsible they are she says, “He (Willy) has to go to Charley and borrow fifty dollars a week and pretend to me that’s his pay for the week.” This quote explains how Willy is not successful and deep down, he know it. Willy believes success is based off of how well you are liked and he is well liked in general terms, but this quote from the book clearly shows that Willy is not successful yet he is “well-liked.” Another example that suggests the thought that being “well-liked” does not get you places is Bernard. He is not well-liked yet he is the more successful one in the book. On page 33 when Willy is talking to his boys outside he asks, “Bernard is not well liked?” His boys tell him that he is not and Willy follows up with, “Bernard can get the best marks in school, y’understand, but when he gets out in the business world, y’understand, you are going to be five times ahead of him.” Willy is telling his boys here that since they’re well liked they will succeed because that is the only way one can be successful. This is an incorrect thought because Bernard is not “well-liked” yet he is currently smarter and more achieved. In opposition to these, one could argue that on page 33 Willy is saying how his boys will be more successful than Bernard in the business world. On page 22 when Biff and Happy are reminiscing Biff states his......

Liking Is for Cowards, Go for What Hurts

...We all know love. We have all loved in some kind of way. We love our parents, significant others and even our friends. But we can also love other things like animals or material things. But what is the difference between loving and liking? And is it better not to love and feel pain or to love and be hurt in the progress? Jonathan Franzen seeks to answer these questions in his essay “Liking Is for Cowards. Go for What Hurts”. The essay “Liking Is for Cowards. Go for What Hurts” is, as mentioned, written by Jonathan Franzen and published in The New York Times, May 28, 2011. Jonathan Franzen is born in 1959, and he is an acclaimed American novelist and essayist. The essay is based on the commencement speech he delivered at Kenyon College in Ohio, USA. “Our technology has become extremely adept in creating products that correspond to our fantasy ideal of an erotic relationship, in which the beloved object asks for nothing and gives everything, instantly. (…)” As Franzen claims in his essay, many people can feel like they love their technological object. It gives them a satisfaction, which human interaction maybe wouldn’t. Franzen however thinks, that people in general don’t love material things: they like them. There is a major difference between loving and liking – even though it might appear small. “Liking, in general, is commercial culture’s substitute for loving.” Products are made to be likeable, but if that concept in transferred to a person, you would instantly......

Identify an appropriate individual; (not a relative, a professor or another student) who holds an HR position with responsibilities in the area you are researching. Don't be timid about asking - companies are usually very receptive to students. Schedule a 20-30 minute interview with them. Don't wait until the last minute for this - interviews sometimes must be rearranged to accommodate travel schedules, emergencies and other priorities - give yourself plenty of leeway! 4. Develop appropriate interview questions. The questions must be in written form and a copy of your questions will need to be attached to your paper as an appendix. You'll probably want to read up on your subject before you formulate the questions. Many of your questions should center around the career path that the individual has followed to get them to their current position and the duties that make up their day. 5.

Incident 2-2 Bad Times at Quality Shoe

...Checkpoint Week Two Incident 2-2: Bad Times at Quality Shoe I think that Mack’s approach to the problem seems like he is asking Ralph and the other 16 employees to come up with ideas so that he doesn’t have to worry about what could be done. He should be there at the meetings that Ralph and the other employees have so that he can answer any questions they may have. Also he could do some brainstorming with them to help come up with ideas too. It would be a great comfort to Ralph and the other employees knowing that Mack is there to help and answer any questions that might arise. It would give them moral support in a way that it would show them that Mack is really trying to help and not put his job off on Ralph. If it were me I would call the employees together and hold a meeting like Mack wants. The only difference is that I would attend the meeting so that I could give my own ideas and so that the employees could ask me questions. Together we could come up with ideas so that the company might see that they would not have to lay off people at that time. We could present the idea that there could be pay cuts or some procedures that the company does might be discontinued if they are not necessary. If Mack doesn’t think that any of the ideas that the group come up with are not of any use, then I believe I would cut production by seniority. Employees seem to go with that idea better than any because they understand that they were hired last and......

A few of the questions that I will briefly but clearly explain are what do I think of the purpose of the tool represented? What do I think can be learned from these tools?

Julias Food Booth

...Julia’s Food Booth Kenneth W. Dayton Strayer University 11/25/2011 Math 540 Quantitative Reasoning Julia Robertson is a senior at Tech University and wants to find a way to make extra money to finance her final year at school. She is considering leasing a food booth outside the Tech stadium during home football games. Julia knows the games sell out and the crowd eats a lot of food. Julia has spoken with Ken a consultant and has agreed to investigate her leasing a food booth. Ken will look at the following items to determine if it is a good decision. The first item is creating an L.P. model (linear progression) to help understand the constraints and how to maximize her profit. Julia was asking if she should borrow money from a friend so this will also be evaluated. Julia wants to hire friend to help her with the booth and she is uncertain about the impact of the model. By looking at the L.P. model Ken can determine her best course of action and if she should lease the booth. The first step is to create the L.P. model to determine an objective function. The objective function ken determines to use is Max Z= .75p+1.05h+1.35b which can be done by looking at the information available such as items being sold, how much those items cost Julia to buy, how much she plans to sell each item for, looking at how one item can sell as much as or more than another item. Julia wants to sell Pizza, Hot Dogs, and Bar-B-Q sandwiches. Julia is going to have a Pizza company deliver a 14......

English Written Assignment

...“Problems to solve by lucy kellaway & the Financial Times” Do I have to invite co-workers to my wedding? This is a very interesting question. When you see it if no one asks you to think about it one is likely to think “what a stupid question, that has an obvious answer”, but you would be wrong. A person that works in a company will most likely spend more time there then at home. It shouldn't be to much of a predicament if the person holding the wedding gets is friends with everyone at work, which might happen if you work for a small company, and the work space consists of a small work force. What if you don’t like some one in your work place? or even if one feels that the time they spend with their colleagues is more then enough? It really depends on the person who is about to take the ultimate step in a relationship. One can invite everyone and just have to deal with those who are not to their liking, which will prevent any future resentments. One can invite just the ones they get along with, this with the notion that others will find out about the happening, and might result in future quarrels in the future. A politically correct approach can be taken by not inviting their co-workers to the wedding using the expenses as an excuse. As a person that has never worked in an office environment, and hasn’t even pondered on the idea of getting engaged, it is hard to considered the approach that I would take. Based on school environment birthdays, I believe if I was......

Lawyers Are Made Not Born

...Lawyers are Made not Born by: Kristina C. de Vera To enter Law school is probably one of the toughest decisions one will ever make. First thing that come to our minds when we thought of studying Law is its difficulty. Frequently asked question for law students is “Is it really hard?” The answer would always be a YES but it’s fun. Actually it’s more exciting than you’ll ever think. The set-up is entirely different to what we used to during our College years, with the Socratic mode of teaching in law school, where the professors asks you a series of questions that help you to further understand the law and will help you get away with its ambiguity for the law is ambiguous and we have to accept that. At first, you’ll be nervous and that’s for sure. Be sure not to come to class unprepared because once you are called to recite you are like a salami being sliced by professors asking you questions you either don’t understand nor read or heard before. Studying law is not that facile, and we all know that. There were times that you need to suffer sleepless nights studying statutes, digesting cases and reading more than two books just to understand a single provision of the law. Sometimes it may seem that understanding reasons behind each provisions and jurisprudence never fail to make things difficult but when you learn to enjoy what you......

Reasons Why a Person Might Consider Data

...Reasons why a person might consider data or information to lack validity, credibility, or reliability depends on what type of data it is. One reason would be what method was used to collect the information. Is the data accurately represented to what it is claiming? An example would be if 400 people were surveyed on a college campus about alcohol use. How would a person know if those 400 people are representative of the college itself? Are these people in an equal proportion to the social economic status, age, race, academic interest, religion, and employment to the entire college campus? This is not likely. Also, a person should look precisely at the questions that have been asked and the questions that have not been asked. A person might have a problem if you ask people if they are drinking and driving and not asking if they have a driver’s license or not. Also, look at who has done the collecting of the data or information. Does this person have a lot of interest to the outcome to the data that has been collected? An example would be a person collecting data on a project that they have little interest in. By not having much interest in the project they are not going to put much effort behind finding the best data that is validated, credible, and reliable. Does this person also have the training and education need to interpret the data that they have collected? If a person doesn’t have the right training or education then they might not know how to put the data they have......

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 101%? What equals 100% in life?
