In Martin Espadas poem “Four Sandwiches” JC is a very intersting and important charictor. There seems to be a lot to JC, a lot covered up. Espada gives hints about who JC is for instance, “JC sings his work farm songs on the street” and “JC was called the rack/ at the work farm.”. Espada writes his poetry in such a way that makes you want to know more about the charictor. “ Once a sudden fist crushed the cartilage of his nose across his face but JC only grinned”. This shows JC dose not feel pain, or at least dose not care. Something has gotton him to the point where violence dose not harm him. He seems to be almost broken in a way. I find the way Martin Espada writes about Jc to be very interesting. Luci Tapahonso had a different way of talking about her charictors. In “All I Want”, the old lady has a very simplistic way of going about things. When Luci Tapahonso asks the lady how many cups in the recipe, she replies with “ ah yaa ah” “I don’t Measure with cups./ I know by my hands,/ Just a little like this see?’ I really enjoy that quote. It shows how sometimes we can take for granted the simple things. It shows how we follow our lives step by step when you don’t have to. I really like how Luci Tapahonso used dialogue to tell me what the old lady said then explaing it. If she had said, “the old lady says she dosnt use measureing cups” it would not turn out as well. Although the old lady is not of huge importance to the poem, her way of doing things has changed the way I think about the way we live. I belive Poets use charictors in their poetry to get theyre point across. Much of poetry is from the Poet to you, but in Martin Esoada and Luci Tapahonso’s poetry, they get their points across threw the charictors in their poems. For instance, in “ Offerings to an Ulcerated God” Martin Espada is trying to show how the U.S. court system can sometimes discriminate against Imagrants. Instead of him just saying in his poetry that the court system is courupt, he tells you threw the charictors.

Penis

...The human penis is an external male intromittent organ that additionally serves as the urinal duct. The main parts are the root (radix); the body (corpus); and the epithelium of the penis including the shaft skin and the foreskin covering the glans penis. The body of the penis is made up of three columns of tissue: two corpora cavernosa on the dorsal side and corpus spongiosum between them on the ventral side. The human male urethra passes through the prostate gland, where it is joined by the ejaculatory duct, and then through the penis. The urethra traverses the corpus spongiosum, and its opening, the meatus (/miːˈeɪtəs/), lies on the tip of the glans penis. It is a passage both for urination and ejaculation of semen. The penis and many of its associated structures are homologous to the vagina and its associated structures. For example, the glans penis (the head of the penis) is homologous to the clitoris. An erection is the stiffening and rising of the penis, which occurs during sexual arousal, though it can also happen in non-sexual situations. The most common form of genital alteration is circumcision, removal of part or all of the foreskin for various cultural, religious and, more rarely, medical reasons. There is controversy surrounding circumcision. While results vary across studies, the consensus is that the average erect human penis is approximately 12.9–15 cm (5.1–5.9 in) in length with 95% of adult males falling within the interval 10.7–19.1 cm (4.2–7.5 in).......

The Penis

...The Penis by Hanif Kureishi Alfie was having breakfast with his wife at the kitchen table. He couldn't have slept for more than three hours, having been out the previous night. He was a cutter - a hairdresser - and had to get to work. Once there, as well as having to endure the noise and queues of customers, he had to make conversation all day. `Did you have a good time last night?' his wife asked. They had got married a year ago in Las Vegas. `I think so,' he said. `Where did you go?' She was looking at him. `Don't you know?’ 'I can't remember the early part of the evening. We all met in the pub. Then there was a club and a lot of people. Later there was a porn film.' `Was it good?' `It wasn't human. It was like a butcher's shop. After that ... it gets a little vague.' His wife looked at him in surprise. `That's never happened before. You always like to tell me what you've been doing. I hope it's not the start of something.' `It's not,' said Alfie. `Wait a minute. I'll tell you what I did.' He pulled his jacket from where he had left it, over the back of a chair. He would examine his wallet and see how much money he had spent, whether he had any cocaine left, or if he had collected phone numbers, business cards or taxi receipts that might jog his memory. He was fumbling in his inside pocket when he found something strange. He pulled it out. `What's that?' his wife said. She came closer. `It's a penis,' she said. `You've come home with a man's penis......

...The short story ”The Penis” is written by Hanif Kureishi. The short story is about a penis, which has been separated from its owner Doug, who we hear from later on. At first though we hear about a guy called Alfie who was “a cutter – a hairdresser – and had to get to work”. He is having breakfast with his wife, when she asks him what he did last night, and if he had a good time last night? Alfie can not remember what he did last night, he then looks in his wallet to examine how much money he had spent or if he has any cocaine left or anything else, which could give him a clue of what he has been doing. He finds something strange inside his pocket. In his pocket he finds a penis, with balls, and pubic hair. This appears very incongruous to me, because I had not expected that he would find a penis in his pocket, maybe cocaine, which Hanif Kureishi had prepared the ground to. Alfie considered how he should get rid of the penis. His instinct is to drop it in a litterbin, but then he remembers how his wife wants him to be more “business minded”, and more than anything wanted him to appear on television. After this little thought he then considers selling the penis to an art dealer, but he ends up throwing the penis over the side of a bridge. Alfies story is told by a limited omniscient point of view, and when we hear about Doug, which I will tell a bit about next, Hanif Kureishi turns the point of view and tells the rest of the story in an omniscient third-person narrators...

The Penis

...The penis By Hanif Kureishi This essay will focus on how Hanif Kureishi uses humor and different points of view to portray his image of the human relationship to and appreciation of objects and likewise. Hanif Kureishi makes use of two of the three theories that has been set around humor. Hanif Kureishi uses ‘the relief theory’ and ‘the incongruity theory’. The relief theory is based around the fact that the reader is going to have a set of taboos or subjects that they do not like to talk about or discuss. Some of these taboos are often things as pornography, genitalia and sex in general, all of which we see in the story. Talking about or being confronted with these taboos will often cause an individual to feel ashamed or nervous. So by confronting the reader with his or her taboos Hanif Kureishi is forcing the reader to deal with his or her shame and/or nervousness and the most common way of doing so is by laughing. Hanif Kureishi implements this in the text by creating a main character, in this case Doug, whom is an “actor” in the industry of pornography, and by writing very obviously about Doug’s work experiences, doings and deeds. And of course there is the huge walking and talking penis… Should it be the case that pornography, genitalia nor sex is not included in the readers list of taboos Hanif Kureishi also makes use of the incongruity theory. The incongruity theory is base aroung the fact that the reader has an assumption about how the world is and works,......

...“No man can write who is not first a humanitarian.” Born on the 7th of February 1812, he created some of the world’s most memorable fictional characters and was regarded as one of the best writers of the Victorian Era. During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular. But the debate still continues. Was this man just an English storyteller or a campaigner for social justice? I believe Charles John Huffam Dickens was one of the greatest social critics the world has ever seen for his commentary on the English social structure. But why did Dickens commentate on social injustice? Was he ever affected? Dickens’s deep social commitment and awareness of social ills are derived from his traumatic childhood experiences when his father was imprisoned and he at the age of twelve worked in a shoe-blacking factory. Imagine that, working at the age of 12 in a factory with no guidance from a mother or father? As a result, Dickens developed a strong social conscious which put into his two most recognisable novels, A Tale of Two Cities which continues to be the best seller of all time with over 200 million copies and Oliver Twist. Dickens succeeded in making the Victorian public aware of the conditions of the poor through his book Oliver Twist and through the characterisation of his titular character, Oliver Twist. In Oliver......

Erectile Dysfunction

...Erectile Dysfunction Obinna Nwaudo Baltimore City Community College Professor E.B.Iweha BIO 112 April 9,2016. NAME OF DISEASE. Erectile dysfunction is a disease condition characterized by the inability of an adult male to develop or maintain an erection of the penis that is strong enough for sexual intercourse. This condition is also known as impotence. Erectile dysfunction affects an estimated 18 million men in the US alone. Achieving and sustaining erection is difficult for patients suffering from this disease. HISTRORY OF ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. Erectile dysfunction has been affecting men since the ancient times, during the 16th and 17th century in France, impotence was considered a crime and a legal ground for divorce and the courts were allowed to “inspect” the complainants, a practice that was later abolished in 1677. In the early 1920 John Brinkley started to cure impotency in the US with goat glands implants and injections. The most significant advance in therapy for erectile dysfunction was made by a British physician Giles Brindley, who used a non specific vasodilator called Papaverine to induce erection in impotent men. Giles Brindely’s drug laid the foundation for the later development of specific, safe and effective therapies like Viagra. DESCRIPTION OF THE DISEASE. Individuals suffering from erectile dysfunction are unable to develop and sustain an erection, this inability to keep erection can be as a result of physiological or psychological reasons...

Sexuality at Different Life Stages

...Spermeo and Egette are from totally different worlds, but their sole purpose for creation is to meet up together so that they can become one and form a human being with many more little Spermettes and Eggettes in their futures. This is all done in the land of reproduction, where they must mature in their separate homelands before the two become one. Spermeo’s homeland is in a place called Testes, and Eggette’s homeland is called Ovary. Their worlds are far apart, but by happenstance, they will one day get a chance to meet one another. Once they both reach the land of reproduction at the optimum time, the cycle called life will begin. Spermeo is created in Testes along with thousand others just like him at one time. The land of Testes churns about 30 billion Spermeos per year. This greatly increases the odds of Spermeo coming into contact with Egette, but Spermeo is determined to fulfill his purpose in life with Egette. Before Spermeo is mature enough to leave home, he has a process he must go through to be able to penetrate Eggette when they meet, as they have only one opportunity to do so successfully. His creation starts in Testes which is actually a production plant that houses machines called interstitial cells, testosterone/other hormones, and seminiferous tubules. These machines all work together to produce the best Spermeos possible. Going through the testosterone machine is one of the most important processes for Spermeos because it determines if there......

Psy/265

...When talking about sex the first thing anybody notices would be the external sex organs of each of the sexes. For a man the external sex organs would be the penis and the scrotum. Whereas the woman’s external sex organs are the vulva which is made up of the mons veneris, the labia majora and minora, the clitoris, and the vaginal opening. Now no matter which sex you are a part of the external sex organs look different on each person. When we talk about a man’s sex organ the first thing a person might think of is the penis which is the organ that is used during intercourse. The penis is made up of three cylinders of spongy material that runs the length of the penis and swells with blood which causes the erection. The scrotum is a pouch of loose skin below the base of the penis that has two compartments that holds the testicles. The testicles are a part of the internal sex organs and are in charge of making sperm and testosterone. When it comes to talking about a woman’s sex organs it is not as easy as talking about a man’s. The mons veneris consists of fatty tissue that covers the joint of the pubic bones. The labia majora are large folds of skin that run downward form the sides of the vulva. The labia minora surround the urethral and vaginal openings. The clitoris is an upward sloping shaft of spongy tissue the fills with blood. The vagina or “entranceway” is the organ used in intercourse by women it is very sensitive to stimulation. The internal sex organs of...

The Sperm and the Egg

...much more useful later on in life. Because every parent has to explain the process no matter the method, it would probably be more effective if the use of visual aids that show each of the steps in how the process works. However, it should be age appropriate and at the parents discretion. Both girls and boys need this information (sexual reproductive system) explained to them in any case because if left in the dark, not only would the girl be at a disadvantage when she starts menstruating, but they could end up being a parent too young in their lives. These things can be a major shock if unprepared. To explain how the scientific version works, one would have to first look at and explain the male and female body parts used; the vagina and penis. The vagina consists of the cervix, uterus, and two ovaries which are connected to the fallopian tubes. All of these complex structures are what makes the woman’s reproductive system work. “When a girl is born, she has all the ova she will ever need and while the number is about 2 million, a lot of that 2 million will never mature. She is likely to only have 400,000 make it to puberty. Even then, during a woman’s reproductive years (from early stages to menopause), approximately 400 or so mature ova will make it (one a month) to being released by follicles for a...

...would probably be more effective with a variety of visual aids, and preparation in order to present this to an adolescent. Deciding at what age to tell your child the scientific version should depend on the parent. The “birds and bees story” may be more appropriate for a younger child, and the scientific version can be more explained when they are a little more mature. A girl should know about the sexual reproductive system when she starts menstruating. If she is not taught properly, she may not understand what is going on with her body, and may wind up pregnant at an early age. In order to explain the scientific version, first, you would have to start out by explaining the immediate male and female body parts that are involved; the penis and vagina. The inner part of the vagina consists of two ovaries, the cervix, and the uterus that are all connected to the uterus by the fallopian tubes. These are all structures that make up the woman’s reproductive system. A female is born with all the ova she will need for her entire life, which adds up to about 2 million. Due to a lot of the ova being immature in form, only about 400,000 actually make it into puberty. “During a woman’s reproductive years, from puberty to menopause, only 400 or so ripened ova, typically 1 per month, will be released by their follicles for possible...

Essay: "The Penis"

...The Penis In today’s society we all are all the slave of the good behavior. We all dress alike, we talk alike, we eat alike and our routines are very much alike each other. Therefore we need the humor to break the daily life. “The Penis” is a very good example for breaking up with taboos that live in today’s society. Here we see something that is so absurd, so the only way to react is to smile. It is so far away from our daily life, as a modern human being, in a modern society. “The Penis” is about a guy who gets hammered in the city, and the next day he finds a penis in his pocket. At the same time a famous porn star wakes up, also after a heavy night a drinking, realizing that his penis is missing. We later find out that the penis wasn’t happy with the porn star and decided to get its own life, which is very absurd because in reality a penis can’t “jump” off the body and get its own life. The porn star realizes that he is nothing without his penis, and the adventure of finding the penis and getting it operated back on the body is clearly described in “The Penis”. The taboos Taboos are often used in comedy. Mainly because it is breaking some personal lines for the reader/participant, and many people reacts on taboos with laughter or smiling. In today’s society there are a lot of taboos. Many of them are based on sex. We don’t talk about sex, we don’t see sex in the street picture, we don’t hear about sex etc. The title alone in “The Penis” is breaking a taboo. Because......

...Running Head: Back to Work Back To Work Marriage and Family Married couples get together when they are in love. One thing that every married couple plans on having, is children. Children are a joy, and should be the reason why couples stay together. But what first time parents often think about, are situations involving money, and work. There are many questions that could come up. Who is going to work? Is one income enough? How will we make it through? Who will take care of the child if we both work? These are some problems that Joshua and Leonora are experiencing. But if they just sit down, they can discuss the problems and come up with a solution. This is a pretty common situation that I have seen myself, in both my parents and my aunts and uncles. Joshua and Leonora just had a child, Christa. Joshua wants Leonora to stay home and watch their child, while he works and brings home money. He wants Leonora to go back to work when Christa is old enough to be in Kindergarten. He doesn’t want to pay for babysitters, because it will be a financial burden on both of them. Leonora on the other hand, wants to work, because she feels if she doesn’t go back to her job now, she may never get the high-paying position she has now back. And if she waits until Christa is in Kindergarten, which will be in 5 years. During this argument, Joshua is explaining calmly that he should be working, but Leonora is expressing anger towards this situation. The first way to......

Circumcision

...Circumcision Brianna Restrepo COMM/215 ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE WRITING July 1, 2013 Professor Karen Lawler Circumcision To cut or not to cut? Will this procedure harm my child? What does my child gain from this procedure? These are questions all parents of little boys may be faced with when it comes to the topic of circumcision. There have been many arguments on whether circumcision is a beneficial procedure or just a cosmetic one. Most of the world does not view circumcision beneficial as the child grows, yet rather views it as a harmful procedure that the child cannot consent to depending on his age. It has been said that “there have been efforts in a number of countries to forbid the circumcision of infants and children.” (Isaacs, 2011) Despite the current decrease in circumcisions the most common reasons for this procedure to be done on a child are due to religious traditions, that the child’s father is circumcised, and the health benefits. As a firm believer that there are health benefits to this procedure, this paper will go over some of the benefits of circumcising your male child as well as the risks involved in the procedure. One of the health benefits that a child obtains from being circumcised is the “protection against a horde of sexually transmitted infections.” (New Internationalist) Some of the sexual transmitted infections or diseases that are reduced in circumcised males are human papillomavirus or also known as HPV, genital herpes, and even human......

The Inconvinient Truth

...Unlike the female reproductive system, most of the male reproductive system is located outside of the body. These external structures include the penis, scrotum, and testicles. * Penis: This is the male organ used in sexual intercourse. It has three parts: the root, which attaches to the wall of the abdomen; the body, or shaft; and the glans, which is the cone-shaped part at the end of the penis. The glans, also called the head of the penis, is covered with a loose layer of skin called foreskin. This skin is sometimes removed in a procedure called circumcision. The opening of the urethra, the tube that transports semen and urine, is at the tip of the penis. The penis also contains a number of sensitive nerve endings. The body of the penis is cylindrical in shape and consists of three circular shaped chambers. These chambers are made up of special, sponge-like tissue. This tissue contains thousands of large spaces that fill with blood when the man is sexually aroused. As the penis fills with blood, it becomes rigid and erect, which allows for penetration during sexual intercourse. The skin of the penis is loose and elastic to accommodate changes in penis size during an erection. Semen, which contains sperm (reproductive cells), is expelled (ejaculated) through the end of the penis when the man reaches sexual climax (orgasm). When the penis is erect, the flow of urine is blocked from the urethra, allowing only semen to be ejaculated at orgasm. * Scrotum: This is the......
