Hidden Self

...Hidden Self The role of a women, whether in the nineteenth century or even in the present day, is commonly defined as a wife and a mother. A Doll’s House written by Henrik Ibsen captures Nora Helmer whose husband treats her like a child. The Yellow Wallpaper written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman represents a woman who undergoes the rest cure for a nervous depression. Similarly, both characters represent their societal expectations based on gender. Eventually, Nora Helmer is freed from the role of a wife and mother after her secret comes out. Unlike Nora Helmer, Gilman’s unnamed narrator loses her mind. In both works the women keep secrets, which represent their hidden identity, from their husbands. A Doll’s House takes place in the late 1800’s. Nora Helmer lives in a beautiful home and her husband provides for her and their three children. Their nanny, Ann Marie, actually takes care of Nora’s children. She is treated like a child by her husband and therefore acts like one because of her lack of responsibility. Keeping secrets from her husband is Nora’s way of having a sense of power and control. Hasn’t miss sweet tooth been breaking the rules in town today? No; what makes you think that? Hasn’t she paid a visit to the confectioners? No, I assure you Torvald. Not been nibbling on sweets. No certainly not. Not even a bite at a macaroon or two? No Torvold, I assure you really. There, there, I was only joking. I should that think of...

Lost Treasure

...Halimatu Sadiat Bello A00014631 Wri 101-8 Cause and Effect Essay 7th November, 2012. A Lost Treasure Losing someone very important in your life can be like losing a delicate part of your body memories of some person held at a very high esteem can be heart breaking. I reminisced the last day of school so eager to get back home to the very person you want to see, touch, hug and are ready to have fun with that special person and just for you to get there and behold that person is long gone, taken away from you by one thing you hate so much and are scared of like hell, Death. I remembered that very day when Dave walked though that very door into our home, looking so healthy. So interested to know who he was seeing him for the very first time in my life, so I walked up to him and introduced myself to him as Halima and from that moment I made a new friend. We became so fond of each other and did everything together, so I asked him who is was to us on a fateful day when we both went swimming at a hotel close to our home but all he did was to ignore the question which I asked him, but I still maintained for an answer and I finally got one from him saying that he was my far distant cousin through my maternal side. Though I was aware of a long time cousin of my but to my greatest surprise it was Dave I was short of words at that very moment so I asked him what was the call of visit, and he was silent for twenty minutes, and then responded with a sad mood...

Hidden Agendas

...The systematic institution of racism constitutes a systematic accumulation of effort that goes unnoticed behind the façade presented to the audience. Hidden agendas surreptitiously make the effort to facilitate subordination of the disenfranchised and powerless amidst the easily perceived promising future of equality. In the following response, I will argue the integration of humanist ethical ideologies that illicitly and surreptitiously generate racist ideologies that subjugate the colonized non-Western “other”. Social Darwinism, eugenics, imperialism, nationalism, cultural relativity, and multiculturalism are the main ideas that support my argument which will be subsequently elaborated on. For centuries, the doctrine of white male hegemonic enslavement has dominated, degraded, and dehumanized the disenfranchised and powerless from the privileged. The beliefs, values, culture, and ideology that all these different number of systems of thinking would create the knowledge of humanitarian effort to intervene in trying to justify and clarify racism without question. Universalism helped to fuel the binary opposition of the colonizers versus the colonized. The binary system is far from valiantly subverting stereotypes, such manufactured ideologies are deeply invested in upholding stereotypes, which in turn generates the idea of “difference” and this difference plays a role in sustaining racism. In other words, if words like “progressive” and “civilized” are tied to the group...

Hidden Jewel

...Mr. Love William Harris Mr. Love Comp 2 Final Essay “Hidden Jewel” In life the cliché, “what you are looking for is right under your nose” is often marginalized to an old saying. I spent many tireless days looking for an appropriate artist with enough depth and character to fulfill the needs of research paper. Unknowingly to me at the time was that the suitable artist for my documentary is Ms. Claudia Davis, a graphic design major at Lindenwood University and an acquaintance. Consequently, I sat down with Ms. Davis in an attempt to shed light on a mind that often appears timid and nonchalant, at least on the surface. In fact, when ask for this interview, Ms. Davis initially declined saying, “I have nothing to offer for such a paper.” Ms. Davis is twenty-two year old woman from Hannibal, Missouri. She was conceived by Ms. Jessica Davis and Mr. Albert Fields. Davis has one sister, Ms. Rebecca McDonald and no other siblings. I asked Ms. Davis how was it growing up in Hannibal and with her held tilted to the side and eyes slanted to the left she replied, “boring and sheltered.” She added that everyone knew each other, and that Hannibal was more or less a tourist attraction for Mark Twain, a writer. She joked that she probably knew everything about him. “There is nothing to do in Hannibal,” Davis said, “the hang-out spot was Wal-Mart.” Like many youth her age, Davis was very active in social, sports and academic groups. She was a girls-scout...

Treasure Island

...The Classic of all Classics A classic novel is a rare type of novel that is timeless and it is a novel that many readers can relate to. The phenomenal author Robert Louis Stevenson, has written many novels throughout his life but he is most remembered for his classic Treasure Island. Greed is one of the human’s defective qualities that cannot be erased nor disregarded. Trust is being able to rely on someone without fearing betrayal. Adventure is needed in everyone’s lives, to live a life free of regret. The life of a hero is something everyone desires. Treasure Island is classic novel that proves it through its relatable themes, life changing lessons, powerful archetypes, and universal symbols. Without greed the world would be at peace, and as one, but since everyone desires something that they don’t have, such as wealth, power or fame, problems are created. Greed is an important and major theme that is presented throughout Treasure Island and our everyday lives. This amazing classic novel, illustrates how greed is a trait that leaves misery and death on its destructive path. The plot of this novel is based on finding pirate treasure and it revolves around the universal theme of greed. The adventure begins with Billy, a mutineer who fled with treasure from his previous crew to keep for himself. The Billy’s greed gets him killed and the treasure map to the whereabouts of the treasure ends up in Jim’s hands. As Jim, the protagonist of this story comes close to finding the...

Pythagorean Quadratic Treasure Hunters

...Pythagorean Quadratic Treasure Hunters Pythagorean Quadratic Treasure Hunters Introduction to Algebra   Treasure Hunters Ahmed and Vanessa both have possession of one half of a complete treasure map. Ahmed’s map shows the treasure is buried in the desert 2x + 6 paces from Castle Rock. Vanessa’s map shows the treasure buried at x paces to the north and 2x + 4 paces to the east. When the two combine information, the location of the buried treasure is going to be a lot easier to find and they can share in the booty loot that they discover. Castle Rock is the lowest left point of the hypotenuse and at the bottom of the left leg and the treasure is at the furthest right point of the right leg. To factor the equation we start with the following, X2+(2x + 4)2 = (2x+6)2 Using the Pythagorean Theorem, a2+2ab+b2 i get a compound X2 +(4x216x+16)=4x2+24x+36 equation. It is then necessary to simplify using the quadratic 5x2+16x+16=4x2+24x+36 equation ax2-bx+c=0 so that I can factor. (x2+2)(x-10)=0 everything is set to zero for the zero factor X = 10 solve for x Plugging the x value for a, b, and c to the legs or the hypotenuse and what this does is it gives me the equation of how many paces it is to the treasure A= 10 B=2(10)+4 = 20+4 = 24 C=2x+6 = 2(10)+6 = 26 In conclusion, castle rock is located at the bottom left of a right hand triangle, and the treasure is 26 paces northeast of...

Mat 221 Buried Treasure

...Buried Treasure Allen Raikes MAT 221 DR. Steven Flanders Ahmed and Vanessa has a treasure that needs to be located. It’s up to me and to help find it, I will do that by using the Pythagorean quadratic. On page 371 we learned that the Ahmed has a half of the map and Vanessa has the other half. Ahmed half in say the treasure is buried in the desert 2x+6 paces from Castle Rock and Vanessa half says that when she gets to Castle Rock to walk x paces to the north, and then walk 2x+4 paces to the east. So with all the information I have I need to find x. the Pythagorean Theorem states that in every right triangle with legs of length a and b and hypotenuse c, which have of a relationship of a2+b2=c2. In this problem I will let a=x, and b= 2x+4, and c=2x+6. So know it time to put the measurements into the Theorem equation; 1) X2+ (2x+4)2=(2x+6)2 this is the Pythagorean Theorem 2) X2+4x2+16x+16 = 4x2+ 24x+36 are the binomials squared 3) 4x2 & 4x2 on both sides can be subtracted out. 4) X2+16x+16 = 24x +36 subtract 16x from both sides 5) X2+16 = 8x+36 now subtract 36 from both sides 6) X2-20 = 8x 7) X2-8x-20=0 this is the quadratic equation to solve by factoring using the zero factor. 8) (x-)(x+) Since the coefficient of x2 is 1 we have to start with pair of () is the 20 in negative there will be one + and one – in the binomials. 9) -2, 10: -10,2: -5,4; -4, -5 10) Looks I’m going to use -10 and 2...

Hidden Desire

... whispers start “Poor Emily” becomes the mantra of the town. Miss Emily head held high and her dandy man Homer, with his yellow glove, are seen as a disgrace to the town trotting about the streets, flaunting her success. Miss Emily purchases poison, the druggist sends arsenic, the package states, for rats. Faulkner limits our knowledge of Emily’s thoughts but one can only imagine that she is putting all her womanly faith in this man, finally a chance for her to belong, to have a husband. She has gone to the jewelers, she purchased an outfit for a man, toilet set with H.B. on them, and even a nightshirt for a man, “They are married” (Faulkner, 86) said the town. Time passes, the house ages and the town wonders about the mysteries hidden inside, Miss Emily, seen only from behind windows refusing entry to the curious, grows as old and gray as the cracked boards of the house. Upon her death at the age of seventy four, the town finds the true mystery and the power of a woman’s desire to hold onto her chance at love no matter the cost. We can only speculate as to the years but the evidence is clear a mans skeleton draped in a nightshirt lays in a bed coated with dust and beside him lays a pillow that had been used recently but abandoned with all but one gray hair left behind. The reader may conclude that Miss Emily finally having caught her man was willing to lock herself away with her desire rather than face losing him. In the story of “Good Country People” we are......

Treasure Trove Analysis

... Title: Analysis of the case study The Treasure Trove of the Aging Workforce. Roman Rodriguez South New Hampshire University Abstract: Based on the case study “the Treasure Trove of the aging workforce, I am going to discuss and analyze some of the benefits and challenges associated to the aging population within a company. I am also going to discuss the policies that could be put in place, their inherent challenges especially for managers who are willing to manage properly the diversity in their groups and put in place an effective program to address it. Introduction: As the population ages, new challenges arise in the employment relationship and the interaction with managers. Diversity within an organization can bring a lot of advantages but also some specific challenges that could be addressed by several actions that could eliminate inherent problems. We will discuss first some of the most difficult challenges and then will review some policies that could be put in place in order to ensure an effective diversity program. In addition to this, we will discuss some actions that have been envisioned. Finally we will review the positive aspect that bring a diverse workforce. Subheadings There are two major forms of workforce diversity which are individual differences and ethnicity. It is key to analyze and comprehend all the individual differences in order to pro-actively address some of the challenges that you may find in a diverse workforce. Some of individual...

Hidden Intellectualism

...Hit the books! Is it better to be book smart or street smart? This question of what we consider to be intellectualism; Gerald Graff goes on to explains this through his the Chapter “Hidden Intellectualism” in his book Clueless in Academic: How Schooling Obscures the Life of the Mind. I agree with Graff’s point about how teachers should try to get students more engaged in schoolwork using subjects students find interesting. Graff clarifies how being intelligent is not only about being academically smart, but also being “street smart”, using his own experiences. At the beginning of his chapter, Hidden Intellectualism Graff says, “We assume that it’s possible to wax intellectual about Plato, Shakespeare, the French Revolution, and nuclear fission, but not about cars, dating, fashion, sports, TV, or video games.” (245). What I believe Graff is trying to convey is, how it is viewed more important to know what started the French Revolution, than it is to know how to keep a conversation going, even when the two people have nothing in common. Although keeping up conversation would not be viewed as non-academic, but could very well be used to give presentations or speeches in class or in a debate. Graff goes on to offer his own experience of his youth. He describes himself as a typical anti-intellectual teenager that preferred sports to schoolwork. He explains how intellectualism was treated very hostile in the 1950’s and because of that he tried avoiding seeming book smart. He...

Treasure

...Golden Treasure I have visited the Metropolitan Museum many times and still seem to be amazed by the beauty that surrounds me. It is common to see paintings and sculptures, but not so ordinary to be able to view beautiful pieces of gold jewels. Gold jewelry is a symbol of power, royalty, high class and pure elegance and this room at the MET displaying different pieces is exactly that. I choose this piece because not only was I drawn to its beauty but it also reminded me of pieces my mother and her mother wore during their weddings. This piece is a pure depiction of elegance and grandiose status. The Nose Ornament was from the Yotoco period in Colombia during the 1st -7th centuries. Nose ornamentation is one of the earliest forms of beautifications used during Pre-Colombian times. They were made in a variety of materials, however during this period they put a strong emphasis on exquisite gold objects in which became a primary way they exemplified their social status and relationships as well as their beliefs. The gold jewelry ranged in various sizes, from small rings to larger headpieces. This piece was one of the larger Yotoco gold pieces because it was believed to have covered the lower portion of the face. A pure symbol of elegance and power through the gold and an item of awareness through the dangling rectangles. Not only was this a beautiful piece of jewelry but it had various meanings behind it. During the Yotoco period, gold marked a difference in class in the...

Hidden Truth

...Hidden Truth Veronica Lee McDowell Heritage College Knowing oneself and understanding oneself are two completely different things. Upon completing a few personality tests I discovered qualities about myself I was not aware of as well as qualities I have been aware of for some time. The Myers-Briggs test found me to be a guardian, or “security seeking (Profile of the Guardian (SJ) Temperament),” by nature. That same test then found my personality to be that of the protector, where my primary mode of living is focused internally (Profile of the ISFJ (Nurturer/Protector)), whereas the Locus of Control Survey showed me to have an external locus of control Before I had ever heard of the Myers-Briggs test I would never have considered myself a guardian but upon further reading of the description given my Tan’s Profile of the Guardian (SJ) Temperament I would agree with the title I received. The Profile of the Guardian (SJ) Temperament states that guardians tend to be very traditional because they prefer (judging) the way things are (sensing), with changing being a source of discomfort unless it increases the security which they seek. In following the guardians profile I take pride in being helpful, hard-working, dutiful, cautious, and focused on credentials/traditions. I have always found myself more comfortable with a routine always following rules and procedures word for word, it’s like the Profile of the ISFJ (Nurturer/Protector) says speculating and experimenting...
