Market Paper

...-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Eat Your Heart Out | Paper Magazine Does a Super (Duper) Market Culture, Food By JANE HERMANJuly 13, 2012, 1:30 pm 2 Comments Paper Magazine's Super (Duper) Market Atisha Paulson Brucie Atisha Paulson Scribe Winery Atisha Paulson 123Loading “I’m crying. And dying,” Paper magazine’s Kim Hastreiter says halfway through the tour of her Super (Duper) Market, which will be open Friday through the weekend in Manhattan’s meatpacking district. She is completely elated and, more important, satiated, by what’s in store: “The best ice cream (Humphry Slocombe), the best cornbread (Red Rooster), the best olive oil (Sciabica’s),” she says. Here, at what is a smorgasbord of carefully procured and exquisitely packaged food stuff, all the stars of Hastreiter’s bicoastal culinary-craft world collide. The vendors hail mostly from Brooklyn (Empire Mayonnaise, Morris Kitchen, Mile End) and California’s Bay Area (Boulettes Larder, Modern Appealing Clothing, Tartine Bakery and Cafe). “I’m kind of a maven, and these are really my favorite things,” says Hastreiter pointing to the Tang Brothers noodle stand. “Those are, like, the best noodles.” Walk through the mart and you might sample homemade mozzarella on honey-drizzled toast from the Cobble Hill restaurant Brucie, buy a Sol LeWitt star bowl (Hastreiter’s pick)......

...1. Quotations (how he engages his young audience + rhetorical devices and message) – do not write the paragraphs – just decide what point you want to make (with that quotation) He gets his audience involved by using the word sexy: ‘’ let me further point out how ubiquitously the word ‘sexy’ is used to describe late-model gadgets’’ he makes this whole thing easier for us to understand, by using words we use and say. Another quote that appeals to us as a young audience is: ‘’It’s all one big endless loop. We lie the mirror and the mirror likes us. To friend a person is merely to include the person in our private hall of flattering mirrors.’’ This is one of the issues the youth have, to look good and be liked. And by this quote he light up this. The message of this essay is that.. 2. Write a funnel introduction a. Write an alternative introduction, where you begin with a quotation from Franzen’s essay ‘’Alongside their built-in eagerness (of consumer technology products) to be liked is a built-in eagerness to reflect well on us. Our lives look a lot more interesting when they’re filtered through the sexy Facebook interface. We star in our own movies, we photograph ourselves incessantly, we click the mouse and a machine confirms our sense of sense of mastery.’’ Here he addresses his young self-centred audience.

...esWith enough time, we all find what we're looking for. Even if it was there all along. More people would learn from their mistakes 
if they weren't so busy denying them. You don't realize how many things remind you of a person, until they become someone you no longer wish to remember. This is how it goes. I will respect those who respect me, and forget those who forget me. Simple as that. The sooner you know who you are and what you want, the less you’ll let things upset you. Whatever you do, good or bad, people will always have something negative to say. People who complain the most are usually the ones with the least to complain about. Sometimes, people decide to just be friends, even if the feeling is mutual. Not because love is hard to sustain, but because commitment complicates everything. You can't base your life on other people's expectations. It's funny how the people who know the least about you, have the most to say. When people can walk away from you, let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. There are two reasons why people don't talk about something: Either it doesn't mean anything to them, or it means everything. Someone doesn’t like you? Fuck it. Having a bad day? Fuck it. Didn’t get what you wanted? Fuck it. Fighting with your lover? Fuck it. Feel fat today? Fuck it. Losing control of everything and everyone? Fuck it. What matters now won’t matter soon; the truly important thing is that you are alive,......

...1. The most important factor responsible for the Earths four seasons is that the Earth rotates around the sun tilted on its axis at a 23.5˚ angle. The axis is always tilted in the same direction which means that for half the year the Northern Hemisphere is pointed more toward the sun and for half the year the Southern Hemisphere is pointed more toward the sun, giving us our seasons. The hemisphere that is facing more directly toward the sun has more direct sunlight and less beam spreading, which makes the sunlight more intense. Variations in solar radiation between the equator and the North Pole would be the smallest on June 21, the summer solstice. In the winter the North Pole would not have close to as much radiation as the equator because of the lower solar angle and the shorter period of daylight. During the June solstice the difference in solar radiation between the North Pole and the equator would be very close because the North Pole will have longer hours of daylight which will offset the lower sun angles. The equator still has more direct sunlight but not as many hours of daylight. During the June solstice at the equator you will have 12 hours of daylength. The further north you move from the equator the longer the daylength will be. Once you reach 66.5˚N you will have 24 hours of daylight. If you move south from the equator your will have less daylight until you reach 66.5˚S where you will have 0 hours of daylight. During the December solstice the......

...Sometimes, you have to give up on people, not because you don’t care, because they don’t. I don’t know how to be someone that you would miss. Sometimes you got to fall before you fly. They laugh at me because I’m different. I laugh at them because they’re all the same. You can’t judge my choices without knowing my reasons. If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you. We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are. Before you judge me, make sure you’re prefect. If you can’t hold me when I am crying, then you don’t deserve to hold me when I am happy. Sometimes crying is the only way to feel better. There are better things ahead than any we leave behind. Forever is a long time. But I wouldn’t mind spending it by your side. Whatever you do, good or bad, people will always have something negative to say. Everyone goes through emotional problems, some people are just better at hiding it than others. If you have crazy friend, you have everything. You showed me what love feels like. I keep myself busy with things to do, but every time I pause, I still think of you. My attitude is based on how you treat me. People say that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Truth is, you knew what you had, but you just thought you’d never lose it. The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes. Friendship means understanding, not agreement. It means forgiveness, not forgetting. I never really stopped liking you; I only gave up because you......

...Fire In The Sky Alexander Cassimaty, Volcano Expert Mount Lamington is a 1,680 meter-high volcano located in Papua New Guinea. Three days of tremor preceded the eruption at Mount Lamington volcano. Landslides, ash emission, glowing volcanic bombs and lightning were seen by the people leaving around the volcano. The paroxysm at Mount Lamington occurred at 10:40 on 21st Jan 1951. A roar was heard 320km away and a catastrophic avalanche ripped apart the side of the mountain. Pyroclastic flow killed everything in a 325km square radius of Mount Lamington, the pyroclastic flows continued for weeks afterwards hampering rescue efforts. The pyroclastic flow was not uniform reaching areas 6kms to 12kms out. Over the next months, further eruptions and tremors, as well as a continued a ten mile radius. Extreme damage was seen for nearly 6 miles and deaths were reported nearly 9 miles away from the volcano. Loss of life was 3,000-4,000 and destroyed dozens of villages. Survives said” the smoke was seven miles high and the explosion was like an atom bomb.” Mount Lamington erupted because, the Indo-Australian plate pushed towards each other making the plate go under, this is called ‘Subducting Plates’.Because of the heat underground, the rock melts and becomes magma. Mount Lamington was sitting on a ‘hotspot’ in the mantle; a ‘hotspot’ is a point where a plume of super-heated magma rises. Lava goes through the middle causing......

The question is not hard to answer right? Remembering God maybe in terms of pRayer, a silent pause of meditation of His word, pRaise and worShip and thanks giving. BuT among these, pRayer maybe the most common term. How do u remember Him?It lies to your own experience. BuT as an observer, these are the instances: when we are haPpy. Example are those i've seen in t.v who won on gameshows yeLLing 'thank you Lord!' buT this statement is sometimes made as an exPresSion,not coming from heart. They only recognize God for the moment. It's not no Good. Just go deeper to what i mean. Parang ganito lng, kasing simple pag nagugulat tayo o napapamura, worSt instance is,unecesSary words sometimes are exclaimed.

...It [science fiction] is untrustworthy as a source of "facts," since these may be wrong, or at least out of date. There is nothing wrong, however, with science fiction as a way of arousing interest in doesn't matter whether the scientific background of a science fiction story is accidentally wrong through ignorance, deliberately wrong through the exigencies of the plot, or simply out-of-date through the progress of science. If the story is interesting, it can be used...that's the educational value of science fiction; that is what makes it a learning device. It stimulates curiosity and the desire to know. "Learning Device," IASFM, August 1979 Asimov on Science Fiction, pg.37 It is change, continuing change inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the word as it will be - and naturally this means that there must be an accurate perception of the world as it will be. This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our Everyman, must take on a science fictional way of thinking, whether he likes it or not or even whether he knows it or not. Only so can the deadly problems of today be solved. "My Own View," The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, Holdstock, ed., 1978 Asimov on Science Fiction, pg 5.
