Il n’est pas exagère d’affirmer que l’ignorance est une chose horrifique. Ignorance peut menacer notre planète de plusieurs façons. Par exemple, il peut provoquer des guerres, l'injustice, la pauvreté, la cruauté, et peut transformer des gens sympas à de mauvaises personnes. Aussi selon le Petit Prince, vous pouvez devenir ennuyeux, sérieux, et ingrat de la vie. Je vais développer les raisons pour lesquelles l'ignorance est une menace pour la planète et comment nous pouvons changer ça.
Il serait vain de nier que la planète est en crise. Pourquoi est-il en crise ? La planète se trouve à des problèmes á cause de gens et de leur ignorance. Une grande crise est la pauvreté. La pauvreté est un facteur énorme dans le monde. Mais il est encore ignoré par plus de la moitié des personnes dans le monde. Pas tout le monde se rend compte que la pauvreté mauvais, 1 enfant meurt toutes les 3 secondes. L'ignorance est une de ces choses qui causent pauvreté pour devenir de pire en pire. Si tout le monde s'est rendu compte que la pauvreté affecte le monde, nous pouvons aider à réduire ça. Malheureusement c’est n’est pas possible parce que les gens ignorent pauvreté. C’est pour cette raison l’ignorance est une menace pour la planète.
Nous pouvons aussi voir l'ignorance dans l'histoire de Petit Prince. Le Prince implique que Monsieur Cramoisi est une personne ignorante. Monsieur Cramoisi ne vit pas sa vie pleinement. Il n'apprécie pas les choses simples, comme des fleurs ou des étoiles. Par conséquent, il est ignorant de la vie. Il ne fait pas de doute que si nous apprécions la vie, nous serons moins ignorants. Nous devons voyager dans le monde, manger de nouveaux aliments, apprendre des langues, et de rencontrer de nouvelles personnes.
On voit mal pourquoi quelque gens sont ignorants. Peut-être c’est parce qu'ils ont eu de mauvaises expériences avec certaines personnes, ou leurs parents ont vue ignorants. Malgré ce problème, c'est n'est pas une catastrophe car il existe des solutions. Habituellement, la réponse est l'éducation. Mais ce sera efficace avec les préjugés contre les immigrés? Il peut être trop tard pour les adultes, mais nous pouvons encore sauver les enfants de devenir ignorant. Il faut sensibiliser les enfants et encourager les enfants à accepter tout le monde indépendamment de leur origine.
En conclus, Il faut se poser la question de qu'est-ce que la définition de l'ignorance? Est-ce un sentiment, une attitude ou une action? Lorsque nous avons identifié l'ignorance, nous pouvons aider à changer ça. Par exemple, La pauvreté est ignorée par plus de la moitié des personnes dans le monde. Mais si nous éduquons les gens sur les dangers de la pauvreté et de la façon dont nous pouvons vous aider, la pauvreté sera réduite. C’est pour cette raison l'ignorance est une menace pour la société, mais il existe des façons de réduire

Dickson, Gordon - Dragon

...I don't want anything to happen to her, either. I want to get her back safely here as much as you do!" Cautiously, Jim let go of the other man but kept his hands ready to grab him again. "Go ahead, then," he said. "But move fast." "I'm moving as fast as I can." Grottwold turned about to his control panel, muttering to himself. "Yes, 16 that's the way I thought I set it. Yes ... Yes, there's no other way..." "What are you talking about?" Jim demanded. Hansen looked back at him over one boney shoul- der. "We can't do anything about getting her back until we know where she's gone," he said. "Now, all I know is I asked her to concentrate on anything she liked and she said she'd concentrate on dragons." "What dragons? Where?" "I don't know where, I tell you! It could be dragons in a museum, or anyplace! That's why we have to locate her; and why you've got to help or we can't do it." "Well, tell me what to do, then," said Jim. "Just sit down in the chair there-" Grottwold broke off as Jim took a menacing step toward him. "All right, then, don't do it! Take away our last chance to bring her back!" Jim hesitated. Then, slowly, reluctantly, he turned back to the empty dentist's chair at which Grottwold had been pointing. "You'd better be right about this," he said. He walked over and seated himself gingerly. "What are you going to do, anyway?" he asked. "There's nothing to worry about!" said Grottwold. "I'm going to leave the control settings just the way they were......

Dragon and Elephant

...The Elephant and the Dragon is an amazing book about globalization and the rise of the international market specifically in China and India. The book digs deep into the history of China and India to unravel the phenomal growth which has been taking place within the last decade. In fact these two countries were once extremely sheltered and self-imposed however understood and realized the opportunity for major growth would take its country to new heights. The Chinese were essentially influenced and inspired by Singapore to accept capitalism. Although communist, their leaders prized political stability, and they were willing to reverse the very essence of their party doctrine to accept and achieve capitalism. The communist party made it clear however, that they would allow economic freedom but not political freedom. They took very great measures to stay in control, some may even say too harsh. Furthermore, China was after more than just jobs, they were after modernization itself. The Chinese government made it very attractive for Americans and other firms to build factories, hire Chinese workers, and bring in the modern world’s expertise into China. However with all the talk about modernization, China’s government still placed the perceived needs of the state well ahead of individual liberties. In contract, following its independence from Britain, India had spent decades in economic exile. It took them much longer to modernize and accept some forms of capitalism. In fact...

Imagine

...Imagine by John Lennon Joel F. Doan Martin Davis ENG-242 Tuesday, March 27, 2012 I have read and understand the plagiarism policy as outlined in the syllabus and the sections in the Student Catalog relating to the IWU Honesty/Cheating Policy. By affixing this statement to the title page of my paper, I certify that I have not cheated or plagiarized in the process of completing this assignment. If it is found that cheating and/or plagiarism did take place in the writing of this paper, I understand the possible consequences of the act/s, which could include expulsion from Indiana Wesleyan University. Imagine by John Lennon It was difficult for me to write about John Lennon's song, Imagine, and not about John himself, the Beatles, Liverpool, Yoko Ono, New York, his assassination, or anything else. This song, as conceived and as first recorded, is deceptively simple. It consists of a short intro on piano, two verses, a chorus, a third verse, and a repeat of the chorus, followed by a brief 'play out' which is more or less a recap of the intro, turned to close on the tonic chord. But the song has inner strength. The simplicity is indeed deceptive. There are subtleties in the structure and execution. Also, the lyric, though superficially platitudinous, never oversteps itself, and is in fact genuinely challenging to the open mind. Imagine is in the key of C Major, the simplest key in western music. The four bar intro is alternate bars of C (the tonic) and F (the......

Christianity Paper - Imagine Dragons

...Emerging from the billboards of the pop culture of music, Imagine Dragons is an alternative-indie rock band that started out in 2008 in Utah. With continued success through its enthusiastic music and message, this band now plays all over the country, and has even done a nearly sold-out tour to Europe. Although the band doesn’t display itself to the public as a Christian band, many of its songs pertain to giving hope to people. An attempt is seen through its third most popular song titled, “Demons.” In this, the band portrays hope to society in the darkness and evil of this world clouded by sin and greed. The lyrics from verse one and two resonates this current battle our world is in against evil, in how it says when everything we see is cold, with failing dreams and out of luck (cards all fold). The message of these two first verses also speaks of “all the saints we see are all made of gold”. From these lines, the lyrics tell that society focuses too much on money and the temporary pleasures of this world, which is seen in how society views celebrities and wealthier class. In the world today, people think that what governs our lives is money and power, though this is not the truth. In verse three, the character in the story says, “I want to hide the truth… shelter you…” This verse is similar in appearance to the innocence of a child and a father who attempts to shield all evil from the child through their relationship. Being an identifiable theme of this song, it......

Why Americans Are Afraid of Dragons

...Analytical Essay – “Why Are Americans Afraid Of Dragons?” This essay is about Ursula Le Guin’s text: “Why are Americans afraid of dragons?”. The theme is about the phenomenon fantasy, and the importance of being allowed to use ones imagination as a child, as well as an adult. Throughout the text, she uses poor argumentation as to why reading fantasy is important. But still her argumentations makes sense, are trustworthy and entertaining. The reason why I categorize it as poor but entertaining and trustworthy is that she doesn’t use a variety of argumentation types. She uses pathos throughout the whole text with some experiences of her own to back up some of her points. Her overall claim in her text is that reading fantasy feeds the imagination, and therefore one doesn’t crave poor TV series and porn as examples, as an adult. Also that proper feeding of one’s imagination in an early age through fantasy books has a positive impact in one’s adult life. But why aren’t there more adults reading fantasy then? That question gives birth to Le Guin’s question and title of her text “Why Are Americans Afraid Of Dragons?”. Le Guin’s text appeal to the adult readers, as to why they should read fantasy or fiction for that matter, and that immersing in a good fantasy or novel shouldn’t be something taboo in the American society. She states that many Americans are not only antifantasy, but antifictional altogether. She also claims that men in modern society aren’t allowed to read......

Dragon

...Dragon Name Dragon The word dragon entered the English language in the early 13th century from Old French dragon, which in turn comes from Latin draconem (nominative draco) meaning "huge serpent, dragon", from the Greek word δράκων, drakon (genitive drakontos, δράκοντος) "serpent, giant seafish". The Greek and Latin term referred to any great serpent, not necessarily mythological, and this usage was also current in English up to the 18th century. Morphology A dragon is a mythological representation of a reptile. In antiquity, dragons were mostly envisaged as serpents, but since the Middle Ages, it has become common to depict them with legs, resembling a lizard. Dragons are usually shown in modern times with a body like a huge lizard, or a snake with two pairs of lizard-type legs, and able to emit fire from their mouths. The European dragon has bat-like wings growing from its back. A dragon-like creature with wings but only a single pair of legs is known as a wyvern. Comparative mythology Further information: Chaoskampf, Sea serpent, Proto-Indo-European religion § Dragon or Serpent and Serpent (Bible) The association of the serpent with a monstrous opponent overcome by a heroic deity has its roots in the mythology of the Ancient Near East, including Canaanite (Hebrew, Ugaritic), Hittite and Mesopotamian.

Dragons

...Dragon Day is an annual event that occurs every year on the Friday before spring break at Cornell University. The center of the event is the procession of a dragon, created by first-year architecture students at the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art, and Planning. The construction is funded by selling Dragon Day t-shirts. The first event was in 1901. Believing that there should be a "College of Architecture Day," student Willard Straight of the class of 1901 led a group of architecture students around campus carrying a model dragon. This was partly inspired by the legend of St. Patrick's driving all the snakes and serpents from Ireland. Lincoln Hall, which housed the College of Architecture at the time, was decorated with orange and green banners, shamrocks, and themed decorations. In the 1950s, the event evolved into its current form, with an actual constructed dragon. It is unknown when the term "Dragon Day" was coined, but it likely came into use in the 1950s. Since then, the holiday has turned into a parade for the dragon. Although it is typically carried from beneath by architecture students, in 1964 and 1976 the dragon was mounted on a car and driven through the route.[citation needed] In 1985, the dragon fell over as it rounded Sibley Hall, and was not able to complete its route. In 2009, due to new New York State Department of Environmental Conservation regulations[1] , the dragon was not burned at the end of the parade route; the dragon's "nest" was......

Dragon

...30 January 2012 Asian Dragons Vs European Dragons Whether you live in Vietnam, China, Japan, Scotland, USA or anywhere in the world, you have probably heard of the dragons-the animal of imagination of human. A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that feature in the myths of many cultures. There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Asian dragon, with counterparts in Japan, Korea and other East Asian countries. Since I was a kid, dragons have always been a mystery and an attraction for me .I have spent a lot of time to study about them and found out that there are three general differences between the dragon from the east and the west which are appearance, symbolism and what they mean to society . First of all, the easily identifiable difference between an Asian dragon and a European one is the appearance. Asian dragons resemble large snakes. They look like a combination of many animals such as snakes and eagles, and had no wings. For Chinese, each one of its four short legs had five toes while a Japanese dragon has three and a Korean one has four. Even though depicted without wings the Asian dragon is believed to fly. They are often in red and gold. Unlike the Asian, the European typically depicted their dragons as a huge fire-breathing scaly and horned dinosaur-like creature with bat-type......

A Future to Imagine

...A Future to Imagine I grew up listening to the song “Imagine,” by John Lennon, and it wasn’t until I started writing this essay that it made me really wonder how the world would be and if we could actually live as just one. The first verse in the song “Imagine there’s no heaven It’s easy if you try No hell below us Above us only sky Imagine all the people Living for today,” (Lennon, “Imagine”). In my opinion without religion I don’t think we could be happy. Religion plays a huge part in our lives especially when we are trying to cope during hard times. We use it as a comfort zone during times of suffering but we also thank God in times of happiness. It makes you feel that you are always loved not only by God but by those who believe in the same religion as you do. If there was no religion where would we turn in order to cope with life’s tragedies? Religion in some ways gives us the answers to the ‘why ‘questions for instance, like death. First of all I do understand what message he was trying to spread. I feel that message he was trying to send to us, was for us to imagine a place where things like religion and countries for instance did not exist. He felt this would make a better place for all of us to live in peace.”Imagine all the people Living life in people” (Lennon, “Imagine”) I can relate with this statement. I remember when this song came out in the early 70’s. Times were tough during those years; the Vietnam War was still going on so there probably was a bit of a...
