Peculiar Couple on the loose
“What the heck, Keira! This is just a simple equation, yet you don’t even know how to start?! You’re unbelievable!” Zayn threw his hands up in the air out of frustration.
“Hey you don’t need to freak out. It’s just that I forgot, okay?” Keira said rather defensively. Zayn rolled his eyes in response.
“I’m not going to teach you, anymore. Besides, you’re not worth teaching to.”
“Oh Come on! I promise I won’t switch your thesis to mine without permission, anymore.”
“How about promise me that you won’t switch my thesis to yours? It will be a very good thing to do” Zayn smiled bitterly as he remembered a rather very embarrassing situation because of the switching thesis thingy.
“Okay, I promise” She raised her right hand and muttered ‘NOT HAPPENING’
“Good to know. Now, let’s continue this.”
“Hey Zayn, hope you survive!” Keira’s bestfriend shouted smilling from ear to ear.
“Yeah, I really hope” Zayn joked while looking at Keira.
Keira just pouted and smiled.
After having a very heavy teaching session with Zayn…

“Yes, I survived!” He said, giving a punch to the air.
“Good for you” Keira said rolling her eyes.
“What’s wrong? You’re being sarcastic” Zayn grinned
Just as she was about to open an important topic, Zayn spotted Rachel.
“Wow! Is that a kiss mark?! Congrats, That’s such a notorious development!”Zayn exclaimed.
“What’s a kiss mark? Is that a mark and a kiss but not really a kiss mark?” Keira butted in.
“I-It’s not what you think it is!” Rachel said defensively
“Whatever, Keira. Just shut up! You’re polluting this area.”
“Area? Is that the Area of a square? 1 plus 1 equals 2? Oh My God! I made it! I finally answered the area! Do think I’ll make it pass this time?”
“You’ll make negative one hundred percent! The area I’m talking about is where we are currently into!” He said massaging his head.

Zookeeper's Wife Book Review

...Ackerman, Diane. The Zookeeper’s Wife: A War Story. New York: W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., 2007 368 pages To consider a story about the Holocaust to be lovely appears grotesque and ironic. However, Diane Ackerman’s non-fiction work The Zookeeper’s Wife: A War Story, begs to differ. Ackerman presents the true story of compassion and its polar opposite very wisely, and in an manner that manages to be both grim and exuberant. The tale to be told set Ackerman up for greatness, and she executes its telling impeccably. The story begins in the summer of 1935 in Warsaw, Poland, where we are introduced to a young couple, Antonina and Jan Zabinski. Antonina and Jan were the directors of Warsaw’s lush, fecund zoo in which the animals not only inhabited cages, but in habitats (engineered by the couple) to recreate the animals’ natural habitats. Both Antonina and Jan’s backgrounds were far from the norm; Antonina being a Russian-born Pole whose parents were murdered by the Bolsheviks during the early stages of the Russian Revolution and Jan, born a Polish Catholic, but raised atheistically by his father in a working-class Jewish neighborhood. It was these unique and differing foundations that made the Zabinski household almost a madcap bohemia, constantly hosting artists and intellectuals, and not to mention a seemingly never ending rotation of non-human companions, ranging anywhere from muskrats to lion cubs (all of whom had names). From this information, it is evident that......

Abstract

...Edgar Allan Poe Edgar Allan Poe was born on January 19, 1809, in Boston. After being orphaned at age two, he was taken into the home of a childless couple–John Allan, a successful businessman in Richmond, Va., and his wife. Allan was believed to be Poe’s godfather. At age six, Poe went to England with the Allans and was enrolled in schools there. After he returned with the Allans to the U.S. in 1820, he studied at private schools, then attended the University of Virginia and the U.S. Military Academy, but did not complete studies at either school. After beginning his literary career as a poet and prose writer, he married his young cousin, Virginia Clemm. He worked for several magazines and joined the staff of the New York Mirror newspaper in 1844. All the while, he was battling a drinking problem. After the Mirror published his poem “The Raven” in January 1845, Poe achieved national and international fame. Besides pioneering the development of the short story, Poe invented the format for the detective story as we know it today. He also was an outstanding literary critic. Despite the acclaim he received, he was never really happy because of his drinking and because of the deaths of several people close to him, including his wife in 1847. He frequently had trouble paying his debts. It is believed that heavy drinking was a contributing cause of his death in Baltimore on October 7, 1849.   Source http://www.cummingsstudyguides.net/Guides4/Rue.html The Murders in the......

Marxism Within Blt

...after the 2008-09 presidential campaign of former Sen. Barack Obama, when some of his political opponents thought it beneficial to disclose Obama’s connections to a Black Theology of Liberation. Through this research I seek not only to obtain a broader understanding of this particular theology of liberation, but also to understand the Marxist ideological concept within the Black Theology of Liberation. Towards the culmination of the decade which witnessed the peak of the Civil Rights movement, black churches throughout America in the 1960s began to search for avenues through which they could help their communities cope with racial discrimination. Caught between the contradicting preachings of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, a peculiar young theology student from Union Theological Seminary of New York City, James H. Cone, published his proposal for a Black Theology of Liberation titled Black Theology and Black Power (1969). This first scholarly work served as an introduction to his following work A Black Theology of Liberation (1970), which earned him the title of the founder or chief architect of Black Theology of Liberation in America. Cone, who was born and raised in the segregated South of the United States, not only developed this avenue through which the African-American community could assimilate their experiences with the gospel of Christ, but also to express his own identity. He [Cone] even confessed that he was within inches of leaving the Christian......

A Tale of Three Lions

...originally entrusted with the duty. As a young man, Haggard fell deeply in love with Lilith Jackson, whom he intended to marry once he obtained paid employment in South Africa. In 1878 he became Registrar of the High Court in the Transvaal, but when he sent his father a letter telling him that he intended to return to England in order to marry Lilith Jackson his father replied that he forbade it until he had made a career for himself. In 1879 he heard that Lilith had married someone else. When he eventually returned to England he married a friend of his sister, Mariana Louisa Margitson and brought her back to Africa. Later they had a son named Jock (who died of measles at the age of 10) and three daughters. Returning again to England in 1882, the couple settled in Ditchingham, Norfolk. Later he lived in Kessingland and had connections with the church in Bungay, Suffolk. He turned to the study of law and was called to the bar in 1884. His practice of law was somewhat desultory, and much of his time was taken up by the writing of novels. Heavily influenced by the larger-than-life adventurers he met in Colonial Africa, most notably Frederick Selous and Frederick Russell Burnham, the great mineral wealth discovered in Africa, and the ruins of ancient lost civilizations in Africa such as Great Zimbabwe, Haggard created his Allan Quatermain adventures. Three of his books, The Wizard (1896), Elissa; the doom of Zimbabwe (1899), and Black Heart and White Heart; a Zulu idyll (1900)......

...could not reassert brute survival died young and far from home. Those of us in the first American generations have had to figure out how the invisible world the emigrants built around our childhoods fits in solid America. The emigrants confused the gods by diverting their curses, misleading them with crooked streets and false names. They must try to confuse their offspring as well, who, I suppose, threaten them in similar ways-always trying to get things straight, always trying to name the unspeakable. The Chinese 1 know hide their names; sojourners take new names when their lives change and guard their real names with silence. Chinese-Americans, when you try to understand what things in you are Chinese, how do you separate what is peculiar to childhood, to poverty, insanities, one family, your mother who marked your growing with stories, from what is Chinese? What is Chinese tradition and what is the movies? If I want to learn what clothes my aunt wore, whether flashy or ordinary, 1 would have to begin, "Remember Father's drowned-in-the-well sister?" I cannot ask that. My mother has told me once and for all the useful parts. She will add nothing unless powered by Necessity, a riverbank that guides her life. She plants vegetable gardens rather than lawns; she carries the odd-shaped tomatoes home from the fields and eats food left for the gods.

...lingual usage. Worthy of note are the following two artificial utterances suggested as far back as 1956: Colourless green ideas sleep furiously. Furiously sleep ideas green colourless. According to the idea of their creator, the American scholar N. Chomsky, the first of the utterances, although nonsensical logically, was to be classed as grammatically correct, while the second one, consisting of the same words placed in the reverse order, had to be analysed as a disconnected, "ungrammatical" enumeration, a "non-sentence". Thus, the examples, by way of contrast, were intensely demonstrative (so believed the scholar) of the fact that grammar as a whole amounted to a set of non-semantic rules of sentence formation. However, a couple of years later this assessment of the lingual value of the given utterances was disputed in an experimental investigation with informants — natural speakers of English, who could not come to a unanimous conclusion about the correctness or incorrectness of both of them. In particular, some of the informants classed the second utterance as "sounding like poetry". To understand the contradictions between the bluntly formulated "rules" and reality, as well as to evaluate properly the results of informant tests like the one mentioned above, we must bear in mind that the true grammatical rules or regularities cannot be separated from the expression of meanings; on the contrary, they are themselves meaningful. Namely, they are connected......

Life of Chopin

... If it were our intention to discuss the development of Piano music in the language of the Schools, we would dissect his magnificent pages, which afford so rich a field for scientific observation. We would, in the first place, analyze his Nocturnes, Ballades, Impromptus, Scherzos, which are full of refinements of harmony never heard before; bold, and of startling originality. We would also examine his Polonaises, Mazourkas, Waltzes and Boleros. But this is not the time or place for such a study, which would be interesting only to the adepts in Counterpoint and Thoroughbass. It is the feeling which overflows in all his works, which has rendered them known and popular; feeling of a character eminently romantic, subjective individual, peculiar to their author, yet awakening immediate sympathy; appealing not alone to the heart of that country indebted to him for yet one glory more, but to all who can be touched by the misfortunes of exile, or moved by the tenderness of love. Not content with success in the field in which he was free to design, with such perfect grace, the contours chosen by himself, Chopin also wished to fetter his ideal thoughts with classic chains. His Concertos and Sonatas are beautiful indeed, but we may discern in them more effort than inspiration. His creative genius was imperious, fantastic and impulsive. His beauties were only manifested fully in entire freedom. We believe he offered violence to the character of his genius whenever he sought to......

El Perfume

... One day, on an outing on behalf of Grimal, a now adolescent Grenouille comes to Faubourg Saint-Germain where the wealthy reside in Paris. It is here that he smells his first perfume. He greedily seeks to possess all the smells, to dissect and to commit them to memory. Then, quite out of the blue, he smells something even more extraordinary. He follows this new scent to discover its source, a beautiful red-haired girl (poignantly acted by Karoline Herfurth). Never has he smelled anything so divine -- more so than all the perfumes of his imagination. However, when he dares to come close to the girl, where she sits in a courtyard pitting plums, she turns suddenly and startles at the sight of him. At that very same moment a passing couple threatens to discover Grenouille. In his effort to subdue the girl’s cries, he accidentally strangles her to death. Desperate to preserve a trace of her scent, he lays the dead girl on the ground, gathering up all the fragrance of her being as he thrusts his face into her hair, over her skin, soaking up her essence in an attempt to seal it away in his innermost compartments. Meanwhile, in the perfumery of Giuseppe Baldini, we watch as the the master himself (played by Dustin Hoffman) struggles to duplicate ‘Amor and Psyche’, the famous perfume of a 4 successful competitor. When Grenouille enters Baldini’s shop to deliver some goatskins on behalf of the tanner (to be infused with perfume for a nobleman), he expresses his......

Women and Thier Forgotten Role in Slavery

...sensitivity history was one thing, finding the information regarding women was another. Fortunately Gender Analysis is now an integral part of historical studies. Even so the gender bias of history is still apparent for all to see, and hopefully sessions like today will dispel some of these false inequalities. Even though as historians we want to dispel some myths, this may be hard. Some women accepted their ‘place in society’. They lived a stereotypical life as there was no other option available to them. Social construction, not physical, dictated what work was available to them. In the early days of colonisation of the Americas men out numbered women. Oliver Cromwell in the 17th century shipped Irish women to Jamaica and ‘Women of loose life’ from London to Barbados to remove this imbalance, but it was not successful. Slave traders  There is little written about individual slave traders. We learn about most through the logs of slave ships but there are some notable exceptions such as Theodore Canot whose memoirs were published in 1854. Of Italian and French parents, he had fallen into the slave trade as a slave ship captain and then a trader on the West Coast of Africa. His wife Rosaline, born in Georgia, gains several mentions for example during dinner with Captain Bell, a Navy officer, she refilled the wine glasses.  It is assumed that Rosaline, even though a Mulatto, was also involved in the selling of slaves. One of the glimpses of this was found......

Maggie and Victor, a couple in their mid-fifties who were contemplating divorce after twenty-nine years of marriage, told me this story: "We met in graduate school," Maggie recalled. "We were renting rooms in a big house with a shared kitchen. I was cooking breakfast when I looked up and saw this man-Victor- walk into the room. I had the strangest reaction. My legs wanted to carry me to him, but my head was telling me to stay away. The feelings were so strong that I felt faint and had to sit down."

Hypnotism

...theory CHAPTER XII--Telepathy and Clairvoyance--Peculiar power in hypnotic state--Experiments--"Phantasms of the living" explained by telepathy CHAPTER XIII--The Confessions of a Medium--Spiritualistic phenomena explained on theory of telepathy--Interesting statement of Mrs. Piper, the famous medium of the Psychical Research Society INTRODUCTION. There is no doubt that hypnotism is a very old subject, though the name was not invented till 1850. In it was wrapped up the "mysteries of Isis" in Egypt thousands of years ago, and probably it was one of the weapons, if not the chief instrument of operation, of the magi mentioned in the Bible and of the "wise men" of Babylon and Egypt. "Laying on of hands" must have been a form of mesmerism, and Greek oracles of Delphi and other places seem to have been delivered by priests or priestesses who went into trances of self-induced hypnotism. It is suspected that the fakirs of India who make trees grow from dry twigs in a few minutes, or transform a rod into a serpent (as Aaron did in Bible history), operate by some form of hypnotism. The people of the East are much more subject to influences of this kind than Western peoples are, and there can be no question that the religious orgies of heathendom were merely a form of that hysteria which is so closely related to the modern phenomenon of hypnotism. Though various scientific men spoke of magnetism, and understood that there was a power of a peculiar kind which one man could exercise......
