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

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......

How to Create a Pen and Paper Rpg

...How to create a Pen and Paper RPG Creating a successful pen and paper roleplaying world requires both an understanding of mathematics and literature. In order for a developer to create their own roleplaying game, they first need an idea of what they are wanting to do. Typically, it's a good idea to define the concept in the title of the world that is being created. Some examples include Dungeons and Dragons, World of Darkness, and Shadowrun. Each of these names catches the eye of the reader, and defines what it is that the setting is in the most general way. Once a concept has been made, the developer needs to define how complicated or simplistic they want the game to be. There are three main types of roleplaying game dice systems that are in circulation with popular pen and paper RPGs today: there is the D10 system, the D20 system, and the D100 system. The D10 system uses a number of ten sided dice equal to the trait pool, defined as the player characters raw capability, to determine whether or not a certain action succeeded or not. If the dice roll above a targeted number of the ten sided dice, then the number of 'successes' define how well the action taken performed. The D20 system actually involves a use of all dice, for various different traits in various different circumstances. Meanwhile, the D100 system is a percentiles game, where you have a certain percentage chance to perform something and when you roll, you need to roll under the percentile required to......

What are the crucial numbers in determining this and are there other statements in the case that might inform whether these numbers seem reasonable or not? 10) What do you see as some of the advantages / disadvantages of this plan relative to the other plans? Plan 2: Acquire Red Dragon Here we are going to compute the return on investment of Brannigan's possible acquisition of Red Drgaon. For these series of questions compute them for both the high and low increases in sales as indicated on page 4 of the case. Please collate your answers to questions 1-4 in tables (i.e., do not answer the sales and profit questions in separate lines in a Word document). 1) Compute sales and costs for years 1 through 5. Note: you will need to interpolate sales increases for the intervening years. Make a reasonable assumption about how to do this. For the next series of questions do them separately for the case of keeping the Red Dragon brand or integrating into the Brannigans brand. 2) Calculate yearly marketing costs assuming, in the case of keeping the Red Dragon brand, that they are as Clark says on the top of......

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......

...mythical creatures such as dragons, Vampires and Ghost. In this paper I will explain how J.R.R Tolkien “The Hobbit” fits the genre of fantasy. This is important because every writer has there own writing style and there favorite genre. The novel “The Hobbit” by J.R.R Tolkien fits the characteristics of the fantasy genre because it has everything a fantasy book would have such as mythical creatures, wizards and an epic hero. J.R.R Tolkien was a scholar of English language and was a professor at oxford. He Specialized in Anglo Saxon and medieval literature. Tolkien being writing fantasy novels in 1976 and has said “No other Genre can put you in such a magical state expect fantasy”(A Short History of fantasy pg.123). J.R.R Tolkien has explained that his love for fantasy goes back to his childhood and when he would read books and forget about everything and everyone around him. J.R.R Tolkien has used every aspect of fantasy in his book “The Hobbit”. The majority of fantasy is based in a medieval-type setting, a unique fantasy world created by the author, but one that usually draws upon many common influences, Which makes “The Hobbit” the perfect example. The main character in the hobbit is named Bilbo Baggins and he lives a quiet, peaceful life he is a hobbit one of a race of small, plump people about half the size of human. One day he is asked to go on an epic adventure with a powerful wizard named Gandalf to defeat a powerful, talking dragon named Smaug who lives on......

What Is Good Writing

...years. This makes the reader think about if the writer was imagining a different world, or if the people back then only thought there was two seasons. As well as the reader it makes me imagine if there could possibly be only two seasons because after all fall and winter are similar as too spring and summer. I feel like his writing creates dimension to me as reader making me imagine all these things that may or may not exist. The story line then continues, with everybody, and I mean, literally everybody, is fighting everyone else to gain control of the entire landmass of Kings Landing. In the North, after thousands of years of disappearance, the "White Walkers" are back. This creates something new and unseen. Typically we don’t see something written in like these “White Walkers” who are mythological creatures who kill anyone who’s in there way basically for fun or when they are commanded to. Basically they were created by converting live humans. By doing this the writer created suspense because what if the “White Walkers’ end up killing someone who was close to our hearts or if one “White Walker” would some how end up being the main character. I feel like the writer includes the “White Walkers” to make the story line suspenseful. In the East of Kings Landing, Daenerys Targaryen is using her dragons and amassing an army to return to Kings Landing and reclaim her throne. As the reader this violates the genre because Daenerys basically got sold by her brother to some tribe......

I took up Bachelor in Sport Science, a pre-medical course because I wanted to pursue medicine at that time. I love science and how the human body works so I worked hard and studied well to become a university scholar each semester. I would skip gimiks and parties because I have a goal and I have to meet those. I am thinking that, I am already here so why not make the most out of it. During my sophomore year, I got invited to join the UP Dragon boat Team, my friends are joining and because of peer pressure I joined. I am not the strongest of the team, but since I wanted to be on the line-up I did not skip any training day. My mom would scold me because she thought that I am taking my studies for granted.

Shanghai Zhu Jia Jiao – the Ancient River Town

...Shanghai Zhu Jia Jiao – The Ancient River Town Thanks to the extended holiday brought by Qu Yuan, on the Dragon Boat Festival I took an hour bus trip to this tourist site in rural Shanghai – Zhu Jia Jiao. For those who don’t know the story of Dragon Boat Festival, there was once a great poet and Politian Qu Yuan, who jumped into the river out of despair for his empire. People then mourned his death by throwing glutinous rice wrapped with reed leaves, known as Zongzi, into the river, hoping to prevent animals from eating his body. These Zongzi became a cultural festival food, and can be found everywhere in this ancient river town. Zhu Jia Jiao is an ancient town along a river, with historic Chinese houses, stores, and bridges. I can imagine how this town had been hundreds of thousands of years ago, just like the daily life illustrated in the famous Chinese painting “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” (清明上河圖). But looking from one of the 36 bridges today, it feels nostalgia to see the same view, except that regular residents are replaced by tourists and business people. On the narrow streets you can still find elders dressed in traditional costume, selling cultural food made in the old fashioned way. Namely, the famous stinky Tofu that you can trace from far far away. Also, because of the special festival, there were people demonstrating the process of making Zongzi, and with the entrance ticket every visitor can experience making one Zongzi for free! Wrapping...

Beowulf

...they describe her lair as a hellish turn-hole and her as a sea beast who fought with tusks. He goes on the describing her to be a mystical creature. For both Grendel and his mother we as readers are forced to imagine and to create the image of these monsters in out minds, giving readers an open adventurous feeling. Unlike Grendel and his mother who are very similar, the third fight is with the dragon. Still a mystical creature but one that people already know. “Their similarity upsets our sense of the poem’s structure; the later shift to a dragon is made to seem more of a discontinuity than is warranted just because of his differing species” (Hume 8). There is a great amount of time that has passed before the dragon appears in the poem. The author characterizes the aging and strength of Beowulf. However the split in the story is uncomfortable for some readers. Unlike Grendel’s mother who sought revenge because of her son. The dragon is protecting gold and giving a feeling of greed when he begins a feud because of one item. “the dragon represents war, more specifically the sort of war which can upset the balance of social order” (Hume 9). As Beowulf has done before he counteracted the dragons blow to the hall. Now as the king Beowulf had to take charge and defeat the dragon. The death of Beowulf was inventive and well played out. If he was to die young then the story wouldn’t have ended heroically. The fact that he died and took his opponent with him, then left his......

Beowulf

...The epic poem Beowulf is one of the most important Anglo-Saxon literary works and it should be fairly easy to make a blockbuster movie out of this story. It contains all the elements of a Hollywood movie; it has a strong handsome leading man, plenty of battles, and let’s not forget about the mystical dragon. So with all this adventure I figured that the movie would fall in line with the poem but you could imagine my surprise while watching to see just how far it strayed away from the original. As I was watching the movie I noticed little differences, like the characters are not how they were described in the book nor was the setting adequate enough to portray how grand Heorot really was but for the most part the story line was followed. The story started to change the night that Grendel was introduced. The movie showed Grendel as a more human form of a monster who started attacking Heorot because the villagers were making too much noise. I didn’t remember reading that Grendel was sensitive to noise or that he attacked the village while they were celebrating. As the movie progresses it tells us that Hrothgar is Grendel’s father because he was seduced by Grendel’s mother. The poem never even hinted of a love affair between Grendel’s mother and anyone so this part of the movie was a stretch. This change in the plot makes the way the characters are portrayed seem completely different and makes it harder to connect them with their original character’s personalities in the poem.......

Cartoons on Children

...“Cartoons on Children” As for the beginning, I would like to recall your childhood memories. When you were a kid, do you like to watch cartoons? Is anyone in this room interested in Dragon Ball or Sailor Moon? I still remember, when I was in primary school, the Dragon Ball and Sailor Moon will be on air every Saturday and Sunday, at 9 am. So today, I'm not going to talk further about dragon ball or Sailor Moon, but I want to share about the adverse effects of cartoons on children. Typically, children begin watching cartoons on television at an early age of six months, and by the age two or three years, children become excited viewers. This has become an acute problem because too many children are watching too much television and the shows that they are watching, even if they are cartoons, have become violent and addictive. Unfortunately, children watch the cartoons on television and they see material that is not appropriate for their age of group. The Children who watch too much cartoons on television are more likely to have behavioral problems, along with brain and eye injuries and increase risks in child safety. The first effect is behavioral problems. Some cartoons, even the main character in the cartoon show shows a bad behavior. They always watch the cartoons characters and trying to act like the cartoons. Not only the actions, but the children will also follow the behavior showed by the cartoons. Why am I saying this?

Character Analysis of Beowulf World Lit

...have a weapon during the battle. As the story develops certain characteristics begin to emerge in Beowulf, in particular, his overconfidence and feelings of invincibility after having slain Grendel. After slaying Grendel and then Grendel’s mother Beowulf returns to Geatland where he is eventually made king and rules for many years. At this point we see true characteristics begin to develop even more fully in Beowulf as he matures. Rather than stealing the throne from Headred after King Hygelac dies Beowulf shows his loyalty to his family and the Geats and only takes the throne after Headred is killed in battle. Throughout his reign, Beowulf protects the Geats from all neighboring civilizations and ensures the safety of his people. Once the dragon is disturbed, Beowulf again battles to protect his people, which is ultimately what causes his death. This sacrifice and selflessness shows more how Beowulf developed into a great king and true hero. The purpose of this character analysis is to explore the development of the character of Beowulf throughout the story and how these characteristics developed over time through his experiences. Upon first being introduced to the character Beowulf it is already clear that he is a courageous warrior who enjoys being challenged in order to challenge his perceived invincibility. Despite his fame and all the praise he constantly received, Beowulf still remained composed, well spoken, and mature for his young age. Having accomplished much had......

People in the house: A valet, of stealthy step, thence conducted me, in silence. I met the physician of the family.
