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.

...Genre Analysis: Standards of Learning Virginia Standards of Learning The Standards of Learning (SOL) is a program from the Commonwealth of Virginia. The program sets forth learning and achievement guidelines for grade K-12 in Virginia’s Public School system. These standards are what many teachers, principals, attendants, and the business community feel students should obtain before high school graduation. The SOL was a direct response to President George W. Bush’s “No Child Left Behind Law,” was signed into law on January 8, 2002. This law addresses student expected achievement in four major areas: English, Mathematics, Science, and History/Social Science. In 1998, the first year of SOL testing, two percent of commonwealth public schools met the standard for full accreditation. Standards of Learning are not administered in private schools, hear in lies one of the major issue topics for the SOL. Students will be held back if he or she doesn’t pass their SOL’s. A school’s allotted budget is mandated by it’s ability to meet achievement requirements and test school outputs by the students. The biggest issue with these required tests is students are deprived of a more hands on approach to learning and lesson plans are rushed to meet SOL deadlines. President Bush’s “No child left behind,” in the Henrico County school system simply this meant push every child through no matter what. Teachers and administrators were always working on a timeline to...

...Task 310.12 Sole Proprietorship A sole proprietorship is an unincorporated business with a single owner that deals with personal income tax from profits of the business. A key disadvantage of a sole proprietorship as an organizational form is that it does not create another legal entity, making the sole proprietor responsible for all debts incurred. A key advantage to becoming a sole proprietor is startup is usually easy and all the profits that are incurred by a single owner (“Sole Proprietorship Definition | Investopedia”, n.d.). Liability A sole proprietorship has possible huge pitfalls by operating with almost no protection to the proprietor’s personal liability. In other business forms like corporations and limited liability corporations a legal entity is created to protect the personal assets of owner. In the case of defaulting, creditors are able to collect debt at a business asset level and a personal asset level creating a huge risk for a sole proprietor (Larson, 2004). Income Taxes A sole proprietorship taxes are treated as one income of the sole proprietor. This means that all income, business bank accounts, and personal account must be claimed in an income tax return of the sole proprietor. This is a huge disadvantage since you are unable to defer any income to the next year (Larson, 2004). Longevity or Continuity A sole proprietorship life span is short and will always have an expiration date at some point. The organization will come to an end...

...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...

...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...

... the hero of the old legends. The terms of the new pact mean that only when Faust is so satiated with pleasure that he chooses to be in a state of rest or nonaction will he be damned. In other words, the primal sin is to absolve oneself of the responsibility for motion and activity. This idea is in full accord with Mephisto's nihilistic principles so the devil accepts the amended pact. In Goethe's religious thought, movement, action, and striving are equated with virtue, while nonmovement, passivity, and resignation are sin. Since Faust does not believe in the traditional heaven and hell, he is really offering little in his own terms, and is betting his life rather than selling his soul. In Faust's mind there is no certainty that eternal life really exists, so he is merely stating his willingness to give up an existence that he is already dissatisfied with. Faust's desire is not intrinsically an evil one, despite his pact with the devil. As the Lord said in the "Prologue," striving and error are the path of even the righteous man. At this point Faust's final end is still uncertain, but his opportunity to redeem himself is undiminished by his alliance with Mephisto. The devil is unsure of his ability to fulfill Faust's request, but he accepts the challenge and their pact is signed in blood. Faust is filled with eagerness to taste all those aspects of life that he has neglected until now. He has found that reason and magic were unable to console him, but hopes to find...

... pushes her closer to her faith as it became a replacement for her physical and emotional losses. Throughout the entire story Flaubert used Loulou as a way for the Holy Spirit to be constantly present. Using a symbol for something so sacred almost hinting at insanity. [Be sure to revise this so that it is a complete thought instead of a sentence fragment. Remember: each sentence needs a main verb and a subject to be complete.] The question is, was it enough to award her with such pride based on her devotion, [This comma can be omitted in order to help the flow of the sentence.] and her loving and forgiving nature. Saints appear in the world in all degrees of faith, from leading armies to helping the sick. What allows for recognition as a saint is true intervention of the Holy Spirit. There must be an intimate relationship with god which is marked by some kind of vision or miracle. That is what separated Felicite from being just innocent. Loulou had to be viewed as a vital part of her life for this to make sense. “They were linked in her thoughts; and the parrot was consecrated by his association with the Holy Ghost, which became more vivid to her eye and more intelligible” (1842). They were linked and was starting to be viewed as a vital part of her life. Near the end of Felicite’s life is where the true meeting with the Holy Spirit takes place. As Felicite was passing away in her bed “as her heart beats lessened one by one…when she sighed her last......

...When comparing and contrasting two or more works of literature at the same time we should be able to describe both works, show the similarities and the difference. In order for a writer to show such qualities he or she must have a very good and clear understanding of the work of literature in question because without it the writer would not be able to recognize the Narrative point of view and most importantly the author's point of view of the whole story. The reason I write this paper is to compare and contrast two very great short stories which are "The Yellow Wallpaper." by Charlotte Perkins Gilman which was written in the year 1892 and "The Story of an Hour." by Katie Chopin which was written in the year 1894. Both stories will be discussed with details in the preceding paragraphs. To look at the stories in comparison one can identify that both of the females lived during the same era.  It was a time when women whose husbands had a decent income were expected to be demure and fragile.  Women were considered to be delicate creatures that should take to their bed and rest.  The husbands controlled the entire destiny of the woman and family.  In both stories the women are fragile women who have become psychologically ill due to the pretenses they were expected to demonstrate. The differences were that one woman is living in the city, her husband has gone off to work, she has a heart condition, and she had believes him dead.  The husband appears and she dies because her...

... one that honored God above all [...] His first care was to serve God, and therein he did not what was good in his own, but in God's sight, making the word of God the rule of his worship" (Geree). However, the hardships of life in this new land consequently led many faithful believers such as, Anne Bradstreet, to question the sincerity of their personal faith. Having been born and raised in a sophisticated, English, Puritan family, Bradstreet was able to spend the first part of her life learning what it meant to be a true Puritan. Shortly after her voyage to the New World, Bradstreet quickly learns that reading about puritanism and living by the ideals of puritanism were not quite the same. Each day in the midst of her chores, children, and other duties, she is forced to explore the true depths of her own faith. In reference to the Norton Anthology American Literature book, it explicitly states “[…] she was troubled many times about the truth of the Scriptures, that she never saw any convincing miracles, and that she always wondered if those of which she read were feigned” (110). Bradstreet questions whether the stories in the Bible are sincere or not, if they even happened at all. She takes her consolation not through theology but from the “wondrous works” of God (110). Nevertheless, Puritans are supposed to believe in the word of God. Particularly, in times of calamity Bradstreet provides us with the lyrical evidence to comprehend the conflict and tension within her mind...

...Family Systems Amanda Blackmon Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi Family Systems During the second session, the client explains, based off her homework, the boundaries she has place between her Mother and the outcomes of each. She states she is wanting to live her life as an adult and her Mother projects feelings of anger, frustration, and guilt due to the fact she wants to be part of her daughter’s life in a way that is child- like to the client. In the session, the client analyzed her feelings when her Mother behaves in such a way and set goals to place boundaries and to be consistent with the boundaries, as well as being a positive influence for her Mother by sending her acclimations of positive encouragement. The client is processing through the feeling she has at times when her Mother’s behavior is in such a way, and feeling she is obligated to take care of her mother because she has “burned bridges” with other family members. She faces guilt in the situation and it continues to be a vicious cycle with each episode of behavior the mother portrays.

...Do the media affect the way people feel about wearing Islamic clothing? 9/11, 7/7, Sydney Hostage crisis, Boston marathon bombing, the Parisian attacks, these are a few examples of events that are portrayed to be the fault of Islam by the media. As a consequence of this, Muslims everywhere have to take the fall for the actions of a minority of extremists. The easiest of Muslims to target are those who wear the required Islamic clothing, such as the Abaya and Hijab for women and the Thoub and tuffi for men. The abaya is the loose body length dress, typically plain black that women who follow the clothing guidelines of Islam wear, alongside the Hijab, which is usually a scarf which covers their hair and chest area. The thoub is the most common outfit for Muslim men to wear, covering from the neck to the ankles, made with loose fitting material. The toppi, unlike the Hijab, is optional and takes the form of a hat which men mostly wear when going to pray in congregation at the mosque. Islamic clothing is seen as an aspect that promotes the modesty that comes with the religion and sets apart the appearances of individuals to those of other religions, showing a sense of belonging and pride on who you are and your way of living; Islam, and the ultimate goal of gratifying Allah.

...Running Head: SCIENCE BORING AND HARD Why do Students Find Science Boring and Hard Submitted by Gianna LaTrice Jackson to Western Governors University, Utah on November 27, 2012 Science has always presented difficulties for students and teachers. Several things are thought to be correlated to students feeling about science and their abilities to comprehend the subject. Onocha, (1985) reported in one of his findings that teachers’ attitudes towards science is a significant predictor of pupils’ science achievement as well as their attitude. In this present paper, students find the discipline within science boring and hard. It is hypothesized that the role of the educator will have a greater effect on the student than the students past learning experiences. Also, Chidolue (1986) stated teachers’ attitudes towards Biology teaching is one of the major contributors towards explaining the variance in students’ cognitive achievement. While Odubunmi (1986) and Odunsi (1988) were able to confirm that teachers’ attitudes towards Integrated Science teaching affected their students’ attitudes and their ability to learn the subject and Oqunwuyi (2000) found significant causal relationships between the teachers’ attitude and students’ achievement in Integrated Science. The following literature reviews will make an effort to demonstrate and support the hypothesis. In the research article by Prokop, P., Tuncer, G., & Chuda, J. (2007) they address the following questions...

... standards in 1990. As a form of transportation for goods to be delivered to different areas of the state, the railway system is seen as one of the only achievable solution. Such logistics barriers that exist within china are the lack of inadequate communications infrastructure, responsiveness to certain needs and time-consuming customs dealings. For China to be successful in their objectives of increasing efficiency and effectiveness in their supply chain they must harness modern technology and develop systems that facilitate in regulatory processes. This review endeavours to highlight and appraise the current conditions that China is in, in regards to their transportation, logistics and distribution systems. Highway Transport Highways have taken over rail to become the leading mode of transport for freight, accounting for about 70 per cent of total freight moved. Shandong, Liaoning, Hebei, Guangdong and Jiangsu have recorded the highest volumes of freight transported via highways in 2000 (National Bureau of Statistics of China, 2001). The amount of freight that is transported via highways are short haul as the average distance travelled per highway journey is about 59km, compared to the average length for rail freight of about 780km. As a result, the freight ton‐kilometres registered for highways appear relatively low compared to those of inland waterway and normal railway. Problems that arise from highway transport are that vehicles used for freight transportation......
