Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice. Courage Books, sept 1, 1991, Org 1813. 376 pages. I had this book from a previous class.
Jane Austen started her life on December 16, 1775 in Hampshire, England. Austen was the seventh of eight children from her father Reverend George Austen and her mother Cassandra. Jane early life took place out in the country and her time was spent performing plays and writing short stories with her siblings, which later influenced her creative writing. At the age 14 Austen wrote her first short novel Love and Friendship and shortly after wrote A History of England by a partial, prejudiced and ignorant historian. Neither book was published, but these novels laid the ground work for Austen’s more popular novels. As Austen grew up she enjoyed going to balls and social gatherings at neighbors estates. Her neighbors houses were large and lavish and so were the people who came. These experiences had a strong impact on Jane because by her early 20’s Jane’s wrote three more novels where classism was major theme. Jane’s more popular novel Pride and Prejudice (published in 1813) was heavily influenced my Jane’s younger experiences. Shortly after writing her novels in the early 1820’s Jane had already moved out of her beloved countryside town to the more populated town of Bath. Jane later moved to Southhampton with a relative where she lived out the rest of her life until she died of Addison disease in 1817, just three short years after publishing Pride and Prejudice.

Jane Austen has been noted as being a writer of socialism and classism. Pride and Prejudice has many elements and examples of this. I believe that Austen was trying to show readers the difference between social classes and how they interact. One of the major conflicts in the story was between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Liz Bennet come from a less prestige’s family that has a...

Tumbang Preso

... I can never seem to keep a movie on until the end. That’s why I always make it a point to keep them interesting no matter what genre and last October 9’s movie didn’t disappoint. We watched an indie film by Joey De Guzman titled Tumbang Preso. The title seemed really familiar to me so because I was curious, I looked it up. Tumbang Preso was actually a child’s play, no wonder why it was so familiar. I used to play it at my grandma’s place back in Leyte when I was younger too. I actually thought it meant the fall of a prison cell since tumbang means fall and preso was jail. Lo and behold, it meant both. I was impressed with what Mr. De Guzman had going on. So tumbang preso has always been played in one way for kids. A player called an IT, is assigned to guard a can. The rest of the players with their “pamatos” or what they use to hit the can, line up behind a line drawn on the ground. Once settled, the game starts and each kid gets a chance to make the can fall with his or her pamatos. Once the can falls, the owner must retrieve the pamato that made the can fall immediately before he or she is caught. If he is caught, he becomes IT. If the can is hit and falls outside the circle but still stands, the IT has the right to tag the one responsible for the pamato once he or she leaves behind the line. The can may be kicked or knocked down under when it is outside the circle. If the player is not able to retrieve his pamato, the others can save him by hitting the can. ...

Younger Generation

...Today Good afternoon, my name is Randy Daniels and I am pleased to have the opportunity this afternoon to give my thoughts on a subject that anyone over the age of 30 has an opinion on - that is the younger generation and their associated faults. My view of this so called problem is that there is really no problem at all; it is simply generational bias at work. Every generation thinks the next generation is lacking in some basic knowledge or skill that is vitally important to the continuation of the human race. Often, however, we find out that in time that skill, ability or knowledge will surface or were totally unnecessary in the first place. First, please understand that by “young people” I am not referring to anyone under the age of 17. These teens live in a sub-culture that no one over that age understands. There is good reason why retail shopping malls have imposed a ban on these so called young shoppers unless they are accompanied by an adult. Many of the young people I see today can solve problems and the solution is almost always correct. They just go at it differently. While my generation, my parents generation and those before might work out several possibilities and try to devise the best solution, the young people of today use Google and instantly have the opinion of several experts. Ask yourself this question; if we had had computers in our day wouldn’t we be doing the same thing? In other words, why do long division when you can do new......

Introduction to the Sciences

...Maria D. Velazquez Introduction to the Sciences Prof. Talley My selected chemical is BPA. So, let’s start by talking what is BPA is a chemical that is added to plastic to harden them while keeping them light. BPA plays the role as an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are used in the containers of what we eat and drink. Epoxy resins are used to coat the inside of metal products, such as food cans, bottle tops and water supply lines. Some dental sealants and composites also may contain BPA. Research shows that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. BPA is part of our modern world because is everywhere, water bottles, veggies cans, milk gallons, baby bottles, even in medicine bottles. The funny part is that 90% of us has BPA in our bodies. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has said that BPA is safe at the very low levels that occur in some foods. This assessment is based on review of hundreds of studies. But in 2010 the FDA changed their position because with the standardize test they can’t find evident conclusion, then again the problem is that other independent studies show the harms of BPA, and this is how they raise “some concern”....

Heads Up

...Methods - Discussion What’s in the can? One afternoon, while finishing up your shift as the stock manager at Circus Supermarket, the store manager tells you that he desperately needs some help with an inventory problem. In the back of the store, he shows you an unmarked, unopened tin can and explains that the owners of the store are threatening to fire him and all his staff if they cannot keep track of the items that they sell. There are no inventory records to trace the origin of the can, so he asks you, the stock manager, to help him figure out what is inside. Unit 1: Unit 1: Scientific Questions: Inquiry and Methods - Discussion What’s in the can? My First question would be what type of warehouse was it, in what isle of the warehouse was the can found, what other cans surrounded the can if any. Were any of the cans in the isle similar looking to the one in question, if not what objects or labeling, or postings were found on the shelf surrounding the can in question. What is the shape of the can, is it in the shape of a cylinder, round, or square etc. etc. Even though there are no shipping documents of the origin of the can in question I would ask the manager for whatever shipping documents he has to see if something was missed and maybe trace what records there are and maybe see if this can came through with another shipment. I would ask my staff if they might remember anything though minute that might be key to the can in question. In......

There’s a Syringe in My Pepsi Can!”

...a crisis for the company. PepsiCo was blamed, in multiple claims, for selling cans of Diet Pepsi with foreign objects inside. The issue first arose as only a local problem but soon escalated into a widespread, national news story and became a crisis in the “point of no return” stage for Pepsi. The first case of a foreign object found in an unopened can of Diet Pepsi was reported on June 9, 1993 in Tacoma, Washington. Washington residents reported finding a used syringe in a half-empty Diet Pepsi can (325). Only one local television station reported on this story. The following day, another claim was made in Washington, and in the course of one week, more than 50 incidents of foreign objects, including sewing needles, screws and a bullet, being found in Diet Pepsi cans were reported in 24 states. The issue was now on the national level, and news media all over the country were reporting on the widespread claims. Adding to this obstacle was the pattern of claims, some of which were fatal, regarding product tampering. Pepsi could not see any rational reason for the reported incidents and decided against recalling the product. By insisting that its high-tech production lines produce cans of soda too fast to allow for the entrance of a foreign object, that the objects being described were not those commonly found in a factory, and that the canning factories of the reportedly damaged cans were not the same, Pepsi was able to defend its position and activate a......

My Personalities Trait

...Everyone is different, and everyone has unique experiences that no one else can claim. Even when we are in big groups, each person is focusing on something different, thinking of something different, and noticing something different. That is why every person has a story to tell, and it is why we can learn from every single person. And this essay is about my short autobiography, which can give you an indication of my personal story. I came into this world on the windy morning of October 15, 1990. I was born in Cua Viet, a small town in Vietnam. I am the 5th child among the 5 children of my parent. I grew up and spent almost my whole life in my country. Now, I am the second year student in Business Accounting- the 2 year program. I have been through many life-changing situations in past 3 years. These situations have had both positive and negative impacts to me. My goals from 5 years ago compare to my current goals are totally different. After finishing 12th grade, I just wanted to become a Mathematics teacher, so I went to Hue University and tried my best to achieve the goal. However, when I was the 2nd year student of the Hue University, I found that I was no longer interested in becoming a teacher.

Yes, I’ve been dreaming to become one someday and I am trying to give my very best for this not to become an unclear vision.

As I’ve said on my recent posts, I love to go somewhere, I love to experience different culture, and I want to meet new and different people. There are some times in my life when I face mirror, stand classically and gracefully and try to imitate flight attendants posture and speaking. I used to act like there are passengers and I am orienting them with safety procedures inside the plane. To train to become a flight attendant costs so much, that’s why my parents wasn’t able to send me to those schools practicing this course. But I’ve got this what they called life’s principle.

Forgiven

...the outside. I had to make my mind up whether to knock or press the bell. I turned to face the garden. I thought about going back to my car and drove home. Home. That was where I wanted to be; or was it where I would be after I knocked the door? I sighed and walked to the side where there was a wooden bench by the beautiful garden. I could see that the woman in the family loved the garden. The smell of white lilies reminded me of the florist down the road on Sixteenth Street. I sat on the sturdy looking wooden bench, trying to figure out what I would say if someone was to open the door. I wished I did not find out where she was so that I would not have three sleepless nights thinking of why she left me, whether she was looking for me or whether I should be angry. I was abandoned at Bliss Home when I was barely four. They said they found me playing joyfully in the playground, innocently thinking that I was sent to school. After three years, I found out that my mother left me at the orphanage because she had to go and find my father who left us when I was two. I was devastated, knowing that my mother left me to strangers. Funny, I thought, how manipulative and contradictory adults could be when it comes to giving advice. Those at Bliss Home took good care of me and made me realise that I was still lucky to be able to enjoy life. Sister Lisa was one of those who managed to make me see that I should make the most of myself than being miserable, grieving my unfortunate life;......

Julia's Tribute

...For those of you that don't know me my name is Brittany. I work at The Willows at Citation where I took care of Julia. For the short 3 months and 11 days that I knew Julia. I've learned something that no book could possibly ever teach me. On our Journey together I was constantly being moved and touched in ways that I often cannot describe. To live with Alzheimer's and still laugh, love and find joy is nothing short of amazing. I never got that chance to meet Julia when she was full of life and energy. Instead God blessed me with Julia on May 6th of this year. God had also blessed me with the ability to really connect with Julia. I spent many nights by her bedside, I've spent many hours listening, I've shared many tears with her daughter's and I've experienced many lifelong connections. Julia taught me the importance of living in the moment and finding joy in the small things. No two minutes were alike. Things were constantly changing and it put us on the wildest roller coaster ride imaginable. I must say it took a while and I'm sure I'm speaking for a few others when I say this but I came to realize that in order to survive, you must live in the moment and appreciate each and every good thing that happens, no matter how small. Sometimes you really have to dig deep to find the good in a lousy situation. The interesting thing is that bar is constantly moving. That thing that may have seemed completely insignificant a few months ago, can suddenly become the joy that......

A Happy Meal for a Happy Mind

This world lost all of its glamour however, when I became a teen who experienced the inner workings of this land from the side of employment. I will never forget the place that was to be my first experience of the working world. My Fifteenth birthday had just passed and this meant I was finally old enough to enter the work force. So I went to the only place in the area that would hire a kid without experience or a driver’s license, McDonalds. Now, I wasn't entirely thrilled about the idea of working in this environment but if I wanted to get a car in the next year it was off to work for me. Somewhat sullenly, I donned my uniformed baseball cap and made my way behind the service counter. Feeling a little nervous, I fumbled as I attempted to tie my apron behind my back. I began to wonder what I might be assigned to do first. "Well, as long as I can work behind the scenes and avoid talking to people I should be okay." I thought. Standing motionless, I observed the fast-food frenzied scene. Employees were running here and there yelling to one another, order screens were flashing, various machines were buzzing incessantly and a mass of customers waited to be attended to. I was rather shy and reserved......

Communication Breakdown

...fresh the carrots tasted. We’ve just moved to a new place, just south of the lake where my brother and I learned to swim. Although our old home was destroyed unexpectedly by a bunch of men in hats, we were adjusting well to our new place. The grass was soft and the hills were lightly capped with white snow. It was in between winter and spring, my favorite time of the year. Jimmy and I were on our way to the pasture to find hay for our beds. Suddenly, I saw a quick flash and heard a crisp crack! Oh no, not again. “Jimmy run, go home!” I screamed to my little brother as I fell to the ground. Skeptically, my brother ran south. I lay on the ground with tears in my eyes. A sharp pain overcomes my body as I concentrate on breathing. I think back on all the times in my life that I’ve been scared or hurt. This is definitely the worst thing that has ever happened to me. I start to worry that I may not make it out of this jam alive, when I see a human in an orange vest triumphantly marching towards me. Thinking quickly, and bravely I might add, I use all my might to force myself up off of the ground. As the man in the orange vest raises his hunting tool at me, I dart off behind two large oak trees. One shot! Two shots! Good thing this guy is really a lousy shot. I run and I run fast, but before I do I stare the man right in the eyes. If he could only realize that I have a mind, a soul of my own. Surely he thinks I’m some kind of inferior being who has no sense of right or......

Justin: One Night Only

...One Night With Justin January 17, 2007 is a night I will remember forever. It is the night my dreams became a reality for one night and one night only. On this day at 7:30P.M., at the Save-Mart Center in Fresno, California, I saw the man of my dream, My Love, Justin Timberlake. What made this night even better was the fact that I was about 20 feet from the stage. I had floor seats to the most amazing concert ever. My roommate and I were in heaven. Justin came to Fresno on his FutureSex/LoveSounds tour. Joining him on tour was female singer Pink, who was the opening act, and producer and rapper Timbaland, who joined Justin on stage for a new numbers, including a monologue of his own. Pink opened up the show at the stroke of 7:30. She came out in a denim tank top and denim pleaded skirt. She got the party started. Her performance was energetic and amazing. She even performed an acrobatic routine in the air. At around 9:00P.M., the teasing began. The band members slowly made their way to the stage and they began to play a little interlude. The arena, already lively, began screaming their heads off, crying, shaking, jumping up and down, and anticipating the moment when the most amazing man in the world would reveal himself. The first song started up. It was the title track FutureSex/LoveSounds. Justin emerged from the center of the stage, dressed in a black suit, with a white guitar around his neck. Silk screens were surrounding the entire round stage. The......

On my way out, I kissed Louise goodbye. There’s no doubt that I loved her. I had no idea that would be the last time I saw her wonderful smile. Such an amazing woman, inside and out. Sometimes I felt like giving up on her because of the heart trouble, but I quickly fell back under her spell − so kind-hearted and loving. I learned to deal with such…oppression, that is, knowing that it was something she had absolutely no control over. She was genuinely the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. At times, I wish I had been the one to go that day. Then I imagine how she would have felt if I would have been the one to die. She sure wouldn’t have been any better off than I was in that moment. She sure wouldn’t be any more depressed than I am now…sure wouldn’t be any more uncertain about the future than I am,” he explained. “It was such an unfortunate loss, Brent. I just can’t even imagine how you could live and move on from that,” Richards said. “Well, Rich, it’s certainly not as easy as I thought it would be,”......
