During the early 1600s Western Europe wasn’t the only area to explore and grow; Native American lacked the knowledge of a written language but was still able to adjust to their cultural fully. However this period was known as the Renaissance. At the age of 16 a man by the name of John Smith ran off to sea. A scoundrel he was became a pirate, poet, trader, and a solider. Mr. Smith then ventured off to the Virginia Colony where he later joined what is known as the Virginia Company only to make the fortune, not to please God. Smith relationship with the Indians was very uncertain. Although Smith was nice to the Indians he never let them forget about what the English Steel meant. The story of the love-struck maiden Pocahontas was not vouched for by any of his troops. Many of his writing included Native American which he called barbarians. He also complained about these ritual-driven meeting and how it took a long period of time to get things straight or taking care of. On the other hand a man name William Bradford a Godly sincere person who believes in religion, prays a lot and gives God all the thanks for blessing him with fertile land keeping him safe. Bradford was an architect of the Mayflower Covenant. The mayflower covenant is simply an agreement between settlers who has rested on “the Glory of God and advancement of the Christian Faith in which the Country and king is honor. He also creates boundaries of how the native and people of Plymouth should treat each other. Looking at how these two mean were so different at the same time, seeing things so differently seems so ironic today. Work Cited

Lit Task 2

...LIT Task 2 LIT Task 2 The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 is a federal law to provide employees time off of work for due to medical and family reasons. Reasons include: the birth or adoption of a child, an employee’s grave medical condition which prevents the employee from doing his/her job, or attending to the serious medical condition of a child, parent, or spouse. This leave is unpaid and requires employees to have been employed with the employer for at least one year. The employee is permitted to maintain health insurance during the duration of the leave. In the first scenario, the employee, who had worked for the company for two years, took family medical leave because his wife gave birth to premature twins. The employee returned to work a week early, per request. He was permitted to return to his position with his same rate of pay. The employee does not think is fair that he did not receive pay during the time he was on family medical leave. Lastly, the scenario includes that there is a new department manager. The employee rightfully received the leave time because he was employed with the company for at least one year and had a legitimate excuse. He was rightfully given back his job position and rate of pay as specified in FMLA regulations. The company was right in this case not to pay the employee for the eleven week leave. The only way for him to receive any sort of pay was if he had any sick or vacation time that could be cashed......

Brit Lit

...British Lit / Test Two Review Essay Questions 1. The genre of “The Fairie Queen” is a romantic epic. Epic poetry is the highest form of poetry; long and episodic. It is a narrative that contains many adventures, a central character, journey to hell, gods and goddesses, and it starts in the middle (in medias res). The Fairie Queen is allegorical of the Protestant Reformation. It contains many biblical allusions supporting the Protestant faith and criticizing Catholicism. It is written in Spenserian stanza, stanzas of nine iambic lines; the first eight are pentameters and the ninth is hexameter with the rhyme scheme ababbcbcc. 2. The term Renaissance translates into “rebirth”. This was a great revival of art, literature, and learning in Europe; marking the transition from the medieval to the modern world. The Renaissance began in Europe around 1390; this was around the same time of the Canterbury Tales. The Renaissance did not begin in England until1485. It was so late coming to England because of the civil war due to the “power struggle” between the House of York and the House of Lancaster. This Civil War was called the War of the Roses. The two houses fought until they killed each other off and in 1485, King Henry took crown and this was the beginning of the Tudor Dynasty. England finally had a level of peace allowing its people to acknowledge and then take part in this renewal of life, vigor, and interest. 3. The difference in doctrine between......

Intersec of Religon and Lit

...1Intersection of lit and religion: the story is "A Good Man Is Hard to Find." Read the part about the grandma telling the misfit he should pray to jesus. Its the part of the story. The grandma tells the misfit (when he's about to kill her) that he's a good man deep down and that jesus will save him and he should pray to jesus. The misfit become teary and the grandma calls him one of her children and leans to touch his shoulder (she sees it as his weak point and wants to use it to save herself) the misfit replies by shooting her 3times. In a part of the story, the misfit says the only pleasure in life is meaness; being mean. But when he kills the grandma and one of his buddies comment on the fact that it is pleasurable, he says it is no real pleasure in life. So althought throughout his conversation with the grandma about religion (which you will read in the last part of the story) the misfit seemed against jesus and religion, in the end he showed a bit of grace, which is what religion is all about, grace. He showed this by saying that killing is no real pleasure in life. How lit illustrates and challenges gender roles: At the beginning of the play "A Doll's House," Nora is clearly shown as the silly housewife whose only concern is clothes, housekeeping, and caring for her 3 children while her husband Trovald is shown as the strong in-control husband who is the "man of the house." These are the gender roles we continuously see in societies as well as much of old......

Lit Device

...Kitty Liu Mrs. Estrada World Lit., Per. 3 11 December 2013 Growing Up In the Environment Authors often use literary devices to make their writings more attractive. Literary devices always help readers have deeper understandings of characters and have better connections to them. Sandra Cisneros, the author of The House on Mange Street, also choses to use literary devices to give readers a clear picture of her character—Esperanza. Literary devices that she uses make this novel more infectious. Sandra Cisneros uses metaphor to emphasize the character’s struggle with growing up and employs personification to describe the character’s connection to their environments. Cisneros uses metaphor to highlight Esperanza’s struggle with growing up. Esperanza has a little sister named Nenny. As an older sister, she has the responsibility to take care of Nenny and make sure she does not play with bad children in the neighborhood. Esperanza does not have any friends her own age. She feels lonely and states, “Until then I am a red balloon, a balloon tied to an anchor” (Cisneros 9). By describing Esperanza as a red balloon, Cisneros shows the character’s attitude about growing up. She wants to socialize with girls who she can easily relate to. Cisneros shows that Esperanza does not have the freedom like a balloon. The metaphor Cisneros uses demonstrates that Esperanza’s responsibility with her family is an anchor tying her down. It stops her from going outside with friends and feeling......

...There are many issues that today’s teenager has to deal with, and this causes stress. The most frequently cited reason for this stress is school related and often out of the teenager’s control. Teachers assign them “absurd quantities of mostly pointless homework that force students to work a second shift after having spent all day in school” (Kohn “Reconsider Attitudes”). A study done by Mediamark Research Inc. found that 60.2% of teens surveyed are stressed all the time or sometimes, and that 72.4% of the teens surveyed are stressed because they had a lot of school work ("Teens Want to Enjoy" 2-3). American teenagers are not the only ones with school related stress. In a survey done in Hong Kong, students were asked about what stressed them out, and school and standardized testing were the top two answers, with 25 of 40 and 27 of 40 students agreeing that those things stressed them out (“Are Teenagers Too Stressed?” 8). However, fretting about standardized testing isn’t just limited to teenagers in Hong Kong. It stresses American students out so much that it is not uncommon for a student to vomit during testing (Kalish). While these experts and studies have suggested that schoolwork and standardized tests are the specific problems that teens face, some teens might not agree, and it is necessary to find out; for this reason, my survey asks what is stressing teens out. While vomiting during a test is certainly a side effect of stress, there are many others as well. Teens......

Lit Assignment

...For this assignment we were instructed to search peer-reviewed literature for two research articles and one systemic review or meta-analysis article. After combing through many articles I finally settled on two peer-reviewed articles that I feel pertain to my chosen article on childhood obesity and associated risk factors. The two peer-reviewed articles I found are “Early Life Risk Factors for Obesity in Childhood: Cohort Study” and “Increasing Fruit and Vegetable Intake and Decreasing Fat and Sugar Intake in Families at Risk for Childhood Obesity”. I was able to find an article while I was going through relevant research that is classified as meta-analysis and is titled “The Obesity Epidemic in the United Sates-Gender, Age, Socioeconomic, Racial/Ethnic, and Geographic Characteristics”. After reading through the articles I found I used the evidence summary form to help me break down the information into four categories. The categories are population studied, results of study, threats to validity of study, and implications of the study. My first peer-reviewed article that I summarized was conducted in the United Kingdom and included 8234 children and parents starting at the age of seven years old. The study included 3934 boys and 3824 girls and they found that the prevalence of obesity did not vary greatly between the sexes. The researchers used body mass index, questioners completed by parents, medical records, and biological samples. From the information gathered the......

...English Lit- Moon on the Tides Relationship Cluster Poems Booklet Ghazal Context Mimi Khalvati was born in Tehran and grew up on the Isle of Wight where she went to boarding school. She started to write poetry when she was looking after her children. She published her first collection in 1991 and she has been shortlisted for the TS Eliot poetry prize. A "ghazal" is an ancient Persian form of poetry, similar to a sonnet in that it is often part of a larger collection or sequence of poems. Khalvati's poem mentions a famous writer of ghazals called Rumi, who wrote a sequence to his close friend and spiritual inspiration Shamsuddin. Ghazals are often concerned with love and longing. Structure and language Structure Like traditional ghazals, this poem is made up of a sequence of two-line stanzas (or 'couplets'). The two lines of the couplets do not rhyme but the end of each couplet does, partly through the repetition of the word "me". Language Ghazal makes extensive use of metaphors to explore the relationship between the speaker and the one they love. Many of the metaphors present pairs of items or objects that complement each other, reflecting the way in which the speaker sees the relationship. In the second stanza the speaker describes the two sides of a relationship being like the "rhyme" and "refrain" (a repeated section of a poem, like a chorus). This metaphor suggests a sense of the two lovers being part of a larger whole. It also connects the two through...

Computer Lit

...Samuel Jacobson Comp Lit Prof. Sargent 2/27/15 Pros and Cons of a Computer Oriented Society Computers have vastly improved almost every aspect of human lives. Computers are capable of almost anything now a days and this power is taken great advantage of by our society. Computers make communication very easy and accessible to everyone. Any time in the day access to a computer and the internet is available. The textbook references the ability to bank online, which saves a lot of time for citizens who would normally have to drive to a bank and wait in line. These tasks can be done in minutes or less with computers. The textbook also references going to school online, shopping online, designing products and being able to test them with software capable of using physics. The pros are increasing in number every day because we advance so much in computers. Almost everything about a computer is a positive thing because they make tasks in daily life so much easier. Although there are so many positive things about computers there are a few cons that come along with those. There are security risks within networks and people attempt to hack into information that does not belong to them and steal it. This information includes bank account info and identity theft is possible through infiltration of a network using computers. Others will use viruses and malware in an attempt to keep track of what a user is searching and even typing to gain access to certain accounts that user has.......

...The FMLA makes no provision that employees should have back pay. It only states they are allowed up to 12 weeks unpaid leave and are to return to same salary. It also states they are to be provided Health Insurance as though they never left. If Employee A and the previous manager made a deal there is no indication and is unenforceable per the regulations for FMLA. The employee will not be granted back pay by the company. Situation B The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 was established to protect individuals under the age of 40 from being discriminated against solely because of their age. It does not protect anyone under the age of 40; however it is allowable for a company to show preference to an older worker over a younger one. It is forbidden to discriminate based on age for any of the following situations: hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, or benefits. (Retrieved from 9/8/08 http://www.eeoc.gov/facts/age.html and http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/age.cfm) In this situation Employee B is 68 years of age and has recently had an annual performance review in which his rating was listed as above average. He was denied promotion due to his age. A co-worker who is age 32 and only received a performance review of adequate was given the job promotion.

...stage directions “[He kneels beside her and his fingers find the opening of her blouse]”. Stanley dominates women with his sexual desire towards them this makes the women vulnerable making him feel powerful and in control. Mitch’s construct shows a gentler type of man and shows he has respect for women, which is shown, in his affection towards Blanche. By the end of the play when Mitch finds out the truth about Blanche, he disrespects and insults her “You’re not clean enough to bring in the house with my mother” These lines show he only cares about a women who he could bring home to his mother and is proper and pure, when he finds out Blanche has been lying this whole time he gets angry and is very blunt this shows his manly side and is one of the only times he isn’t kind and gentle. Readers would not of been shocked with how Mitch reacted, as it was normal for men to be interested in getting married with women who were ladylike and decent, readers would of found it normal to react the way he did especially because Blanche lied to him, they would of also felt sorry for Mitch as it was obvious he cared for her. The feminist approach towards the play would concentrate on how men are made to seem more superior and very masculine for example in the stage directions is where Blanche is introduced where as Stanley is introduced and described through his masculinity. Women are also described as weak and let their desire towards men control them, letting men have the......

...Ibsen. The title itself gives an indication of how the play is similar to a doll’s house; the characters, the settings and the situations depicted in the play are false at times and the play shows how certain aspects are different from reality. The entire play is woven around Torvald Helmer and Nora’s relationship. Their relationship seems perfect on the surface. They appear to be in love with each other and are happily married. Nora’s role in the play shows that she needs to be in control, to take the lead role, and that she is merely using other people as supporting characters because she does what she wants to do. She controls Torvald through by her childish behavior and flirts with Dr. Rank to assert herself on him. One question that frequently arises: How can one woman make so many unexpected transitions? She keeps changing her attitude and portrays many roles in the play ranging from a child-wife and adult tease to a determined businesswoman who is smart and manipulative and to an independent woman who puts herself before her family. Torvald’s role is more about being a male chauvinist who adores his wife but doesn’t rule out the sarcasm and treats her like a toy. He also has different roles to play from a loving husband who wants to guide his wife to the current path to someone who believes that his own reputation is worth more than anything. The language in the play is not just a weapon of communication, but it also portrays the little roles and games both Nora......

...asking themselves whether or not these learning styles are actually still effective and successful. Several studies have been conducted to see whether or not learning styles actually work. Although we cannot actually see learning or see how effective learning actually is by testing, through research and observation different psychologists have come to their own conclusion. After researching whether or not learning styles are still viable, I have come to the conclusion that yes learning styles are still viable. Before proceeding it is important to understand that there is more than one learning style. The simple go-to styles that everyone tends to know are visual learners, audible learners, and hands-on learners, but there are actually seven. An advocate that supports the idea that learning styles still work would argue that depending on the type of learner that an individual is they might excel in one particular subject, but perhaps not another.

...of our friends, We first consult our private ends, While Nature kindly bent to ease us, Points out some circumstance to please us.” This tells us that when you have to go sit on the toilet and use it your body feels a sense of relief. In lines fourteen thru twenty the writer moves to more serious tone. Our equal raised above our size. Who would not at a crowded show stand high himself, keep others low? I love my friend as well as you, But why should he obstruct my view? Then let me have the higher post: I ask for an inch at most.” In these lines he’s trying to say that if someone is taller than you they shouldn’t stand in front and block your view. In lines twenty-one thru twenty-six he talks about if you find a loved one in a battle hope that they win the battle and not be killed. “If in a battle you should find one, whom you love of all mankind, Had some heroic action done. A champion killed, or trophy won; Rather than this be overtopped, Would you not wish his laurels cropped?” Lines twenty-seven thru thirty “Dear honest Ned is in the gout, Lies racked with pain, and you without: How patiently you hear him groan! How glad the case is not your own!” Here he talks about how glad he is that it’s his friend who has terrible stomach and bowel problems and is in a lot of pain and that he’s glad it’s his friend and not him. In lines thirty-five thru forty –four he talks about how even the strongest of friendships still give into caring only about themselves at times and that to......
