My name is John, and I am a kissy princess.

The Hyksos, a controversial topic of who are they and what really happened, were they freed slaves or were the invaders that were driven out by the Egyptians? In this paper, I will <………> who were the Hyksos and highlight their impact on history. We know that the Hyksos attacked Egypt from the East, they spoke a western semantic language and that we can link them to the Levant area. Based on Manetho’s writing in Aegyptiaca., frag. 42, 1.75-79.2 we know the Hyksos invaded Egypt as Manetho states “Tutimaeus [0]. In his reign, for what cause I know not, a blast of God smote us; and unexpectedly, from the regions of the East, invaders of obscure race marched in confidence of victory against our land. By main force they easily overpowered the rulers of the land, they then burned our cities ruthlessly, razed to the ground the temples of the gods, and treated all the natives with a cruel hostility, massacring some and leading into slavery the wives and children of others.” Based on the aforementioned excerpt the Hyksos didn’t come to Egypt in peace. Egypt was disunited during this time so the Hyksos gradually conquered more and more of Egypt.
Further evidence that the Hyksos weren’t slaves and that they were conquerors can be shown in their name since we now know the meaning of the word “Hyksos.” Hyksos was thought to mean “Shepard Kings” is more accurately translated to “the rulers of foreign countries”[1] which highly suggest that they used their war technologies; horse led chariots, the composite bow, the kepesh[2] and bronze made armor for the purpose of conquering territories, they certainly weren’t slaves as the Exodus claims....

Wealth over Love

...Short Story Wealth Over Love Once upon a time, in the far far away kingdom of Smis, there was a beautiful princess named Elizabeth. She was always satisfied with what she has. She was never sad, and is always smiling, as her kingdom is affluent, full of wealth, power, and dignity. One late evening, she heard a small noise out from the outside of her room. It was a small tiny noise she didn’t really notice at first, but it occurred again. She wondered what it was, so she walked outside to check what it was. Once she got onto her balcony, the bright moon light hit her body. She felt lighted up. The stars are sparkling like ice cubes, with the backdrop of the sky which was glowing blue. The mysterious noise repeated again, and with more distinct of frustration. It was the small sparrow under the full moon. Elizabeth stood there and kept observing the sparrow. The sparrow kept making the frustrating sound, and never got onto the branch, and keeps flying around near the tree. Her sound was sharp, long, and seems like she’s longing for someone. She sounded like she is singing to someone to come to her. The bird seem painfully isolated comparing to the fulfilled moon with it’s company of sparkling stars. Looking at the sparrow, Elizabeth felt the dryness. Then came a male sparrow. It flew up to the tree where the other sparrow was. Elizabeth couldn’t hear anymore frustrating sound from the sparrow. The two sparrows started to fly around together for a while. Then I could...

Folklore Analysis Based on Propp's Seven Spheres of Action struck. The prince asked both of them to marry him but they refused to share. The princesses quarreled over the prince which also caused the villagers to fight amongst each other. Puteri Sejinjang hit Puteri Santubong on the cheek with her rice pounder and Puteri Santubong countered by striking her with her belidak, the tool she uses for weaving. Both princesses died and were cursed to become mountains, Gunung Santubong and Gunung Sejinjang.

...Becoming a Princess: The Transition From Individual to Sex Object (Ali Wachutka( rince Charming did not kiss Snow White to wake her. Ariel never really loved Eric. The Beast was not angry and violent. Mulan never fell in love with her general. At least not in the original versions of the stories; all these changes were added by Disney to make a more interesting movie, or to forward a sexist agenda. A multitude of sexist messages are present in Disney movies teaching young girls that they are expected to fill a submissive role in society. The fairy tales are symbolic of women’s lives being shaped by male influences. Over time, the sexist message in Disney movies has become less apparent, but it has never disappeared; it is merely buried within a classic fairy tale that the “magic of Disney” has transformed into a sexist lesson. Naturally, these movies must not have a traumatic affect on little girls. Parents are not actually harming their daughters by allowing them to indulge their fairy tale fantasies. Not according to Jack Zipes, leading expert on fairy tales and German professor at the University of Minnesota, the movies have “a type of gender stereotyping . . . that has an adverse effect on children, in contrast to what parents think . . .. Parents think they’re essentially harmless – they are not harmless” (Giroux, “Roared” 103). Maria Tatar, Harvard folklorist, also sees harm in the movies since “[Disney] capitalizes on the worst part of......

...In Miyazaki films, he strengthens the importance of protecting the environment in order to remain the nature beauty of the Earth. He is inspired by the environmental issues happening around Japan or even the globe which reflects the attitude of the people who mistreat the environment. In Nausicaa of the valley of the wind, in 1984, the film stresses the idea of protecting the environment. This film was released by the recommendation of World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).

What Is "Praiseworthy"

...Sagine Bredy 2/19/14 English 109 Definition Essay 1 Final Revision   Define the word “praiseworthy.”   Praiseworthiness has many characteristics that can be good. A person who is considered praiseworthy is not afraid to do things that seem impossible. How can the term “praiseworthy” be defined? According to Google, the term “praiseworthy” can be defined as “deserving of approval and admiration.” Three distinctive attributes of the term are determination, bravery, and strong faith. One characteristic of being praiseworthy is determination. Determined people are willing to do anything to accomplish their challenges. Two examples of praiseworthy characters are the blessed child (“Jasmine”) from “The Price of Jasmines and Lilies” and the crow from “The Crow and the Pitcher.” In “The Price of Jasmines and Lilies,” Jasmine was considered a blessed child because she had powers such as turning water into gold, and whenever she spoke, jasmines and lilies fell from her mouth. As Jasmine was traveling with her aunt to meet the prince, Jasmine exchanged her eyes for water because she was thirsty. She was determined to get her eyesight back by praying to her god, Allah and decided to sell her flowers with the help of the old man. She was blessed with two eyes from an elderly man that was selling her jasmines and lilies in exchange for two eyes. Jasmine is praiseworthy because she wanted to sell her jasmines and lilies to get two eyes in exchange. In “The Crow and the Pitcher,”......

Film Critique Walt Disney’s the Princess and the Frog

...Film Critique Walt Disney’s The Princess and the frog I am going to write about three issues that I noticed in the film “The Princess and the Frog” by Disney. The three topics I am going to talk about are classism, discrimination, and stereotypes in that respected order. This film brought up several issues, but those are the three I chose to focus on because these three were more predominate throughout the film. Set in New Orleans at the beginning of the 20th century, The Princess and the Frog concerns a poor African-American girl named Tiana who has a knack for cooking, and dreams of opening her own restaurant. Her best friend since childhood is a privileged white girl whose wealthy father employs Tiana's mother as a dressmaker. When the friend's family hosts a party for Prince Naveen of Maldonia, Dr. Facilier,a.k.a the Shadow Man, an expert in black magic, turns the visiting royal into a frog. The now amphibious Naveen convinces Tiana that a kiss will reverse the spell, and if she obliges him he'll provide the money she needs to open her dream restaurant. However, their smooch not only fails to turn him back into a human, but transforms Tiana into a frog as well. The duo then sets out to find a voodoo priestess who can set everything right.“ “ Let’s start with classism, which a biased or discriminatory attitude based on distinctions is made between social or economic classes or the viewing of society as being composed of distinct classes. ......

Meg Cabot

...Kirsten Orshal English-10 Greer Author Paper 4/10/14 “A queen is never late, everyone else is simply early” (Queen Clarisse Renaldi the Princess Diaries). This is a quote that I live by. Whenever I walk in late somewhere I will utter this quote and get surprised smiles and people saying “Oh the Princess Diaries I love that movie!” That movie was brought to life by a wonderful author Meg Cabot. Although the Disney movie did not directly follow the book it was based off of it, and there are many similarities. Meg Cabot is quite like Mia in the sense that she is tall, and has lived in an apartment, yet unlike little Mia she’s not a secret air to a small kingdom. When Meg writes a book she is sure to put a piece of her into it. Meg’s mystery series really ties into her life. Meg lived in New York City, she was an assistant residency hall director, and she attended college just like her main character Heather wells.

A Little Princess

...A Little Princess (1995) I chose the movie ‘A Little Princess’ because it showed the perseverance of a little girl during her darkest times. She was faced with a disastrous situation, yet it did not change who she was, a kind and gentle person. Synopsis The movie takes place during World War 1. The main protagonist, Sara Crewe, is a fun-loving and kind hearted little girl who loved to hear stories. She grew up in India but was later enrolled in a seminary for girls in New York when her father, Captain Crew, decided to fight for British in WW1. He was quite wealthy and made sure that Sara would not have any sort of discomfort. Many other students liked Sara and her exciting stories, while others grew jealous over her popularity. The seminary’s headmistress, Miss Minchin, is very intolerant and narrow-minded. One day Sara gets the news that her father died in the battle and all his wealth and estate is seized by the government. Miss Minchin forces Sara to be a servant along with the other servant girl, Becky. Sara still continues being who she was. When taunted by her headmistress, she firmly said she believed that ‘every girl is a princess’. In the end, we find out that Sara’s father didn’t die but had severe amnesia and temporary blindness. When he regained his memory, he came for Sara. Miss Minchin got kicked out off the seminary and became a chimney sweep, working under a boy whom she mistreated in the past.

America’s Attitude Toward Sexuality

...AMERICA’S ATTITUDE TOWARD SEXUALITY   Rebecca  Kelly   Independent  Study   October  21,  2014     “Great ambition is the passion of a great character. Those endowed with it may perform very good or very bad acts. All depends on the principles which direct them.” -Napoleon Bonaparte “Playin' a fool's game, hopin' to win; And tellin' those sweet lies and losin' again; I was lookin' for love in all the wrong places; Lookin' for love in too many faces”. –Johnny Lee, 1980 Every night many Americans turn off their lights and lock their doors to prevent unwanted intruders from inviting themselves into their relatively peaceful homes. But what do they do next? Studies from the National Sleep Foundation suggest that 95% of families use some form of electronic media1 before getting a few hours of restless slumber. What they do not generally take into consideration, however, is that the shows and movies that are being watched are completely counter-productive to the doors that have just been locked and have consequently created a false sense of security. Certainly, one would not voluntarily invite an audacious woman who had just shown up on their doorstep into their home with barely any clothing on any more than they would a man with a ski mask and machete. Yet some people willingly subject themselves to this sort of viewing on a consistent basis. Beyond that, there are many children and adolescents left alone to their own devices with......

Hayao Miyazaki's Two Treatments of Duality

...Hayao Miyazaki attained global acclaim for both Princess Mononoke, released in the United States in 1999, and Spirited Away, released throughout North America three years later. These films are clearly products of the same visionary; each film presents a protagonist of strong will and sound ethic and, in each case, he or she is forced to embark on an epic journey. Both films were very successful in Japan; however, although both were critically acclaimed in the United States, only Spirited Away saw continued box-office success. In order to explain the disparity between these films’ earnings, I will discuss the different approaches, which these films take, to the theme of duality. Naturally, the idea of a double nature is unsettling. However, whereas Spirited Away addresses this theme in a way that invigorates and provides closure, Princess Mononoke leaves the audience feeling uncertain. In order to understand the disparity between these films’ earnings, one must examine not only thematic differences between these films, but also patterns among high-grossing films in the United States. In other words, what are American audiences looking for, which Spirited Away offers and Princess Mononoke does not? When reviewing the history of box-office successes in the United States, one becomes aware of an unfortunate truth: that there is little correlation between what viewers recognize as ‘good cinema’ and what they will pay to see. So what is the formula for a box office......
