Lord of the Flies: the Bad, the Horrible, and the Ugly

...Zoe Mais Ms. Woodruff English 9, Period 2 September 1, 2012 Lord of the Flies: The Bad, the Horrible, and the Ugly There is a nationwide debate on whether Lord of the Flies by William Golding is appropriate for high school students to read. It is filled with foul language, grotesque violence, and the horrible effects of insanity. The worse fact it that this is all happening to a group of kids between the ages 6 and 12. In my opinion, this is an inappropriate book for high school students to read. This book is intended for mature audiences. For teenagers, at still a young age, to be reading this book isn’t good. The ages of the children in the book are almost close to the ages of the teens reading the book. The time period which the story is set in is different than the time period now, so we have a different view of the story than society 60 years ago. First, let’s talk about the language. “You’re a beast and a swine and a bloody, bloody thief!” (Golding 163). This is an example of the profanity used in the story. Ralph yells that at Jack before they’re about to fight before Piggy stops them. The boys in the story are British. In Great Britain, the use of the word “bloody” is considered profanity. Even though we don’t use “bloody” in that context, we can still understand how it’s implied. You wouldn’t want a little boy screaming “bloody” at everything. Just think of him screaming “F- this” and “F- that” at everything. It’s just the same context as “bloody” but in just...

A Horrible Journey

...Experiences Journey to Cox’sbazar Our life is full of many experiences. Every day we got new kinds of experiences. It was 14 September 2010. I with some of my friends and senior brothers arranged a journey to cox’sbazar from Pabna. 14 September at 8.00 pm we started our journey from pabna. I was excited. Because I never went cox’sbazar and didn’t see the longest beach of the world. So all of us make a great fun on the bus. Suddenly one of our buses wheel is blasted. Driver somehow controls the bus and save us. Then driver and helper changed the wheel and we started our journey again. After that three times our bus’s wheel blasted in different location. But none of us was injured for those accidents. All of us were so much afraid because of those incidents .We had passed the whole day on the way. We also got some new experiences and make a great fun on that time. Then we started our journey again to cox’sbazar. When we cross Chittagong town, we met with rain. I enjoyed those lovely moments. At the night about 1.00 A.M when some of us was sleeping, suddenly our bus clashed with another truck near about cox’sbazar. Everything was happened in darkness.

Euthanasia: a Horrible Thing or the Solution to Torture?

...A gravely ill man lies in bed awaiting death. He exerts all his energy upon every breath he takes. One of life’s agonies is waiting for it all to be over. Euthanasia, a remedy for this man’s unfortunate situation, could be his solution to happiness. It has been a long disputed act in the United States and Europe. Euthanasia is the practice of painlessly ending the lives of people who have incurable, painful, or distressing diseases or handicaps. Euthanasia is sometimes called ‘mercy killing’. To begin, one aspect of euthanasia’s benefits is the fact that the quality of life when a person is chronically ill tends to be very bad. Euthanasia can end an uncomfortable and painful life. Secondly, euthanasia can save families money on medical bills. The cost of keeping a person alive with an unfortunate fate would be higher than a person who chooses to pass away. Lastly, a person, legally, should have the right to end their life. Firstly, the issue of quality of life plays a large role in the support of euthanasia. Lying in bed all day can be a form of torture within itself. Bed sores and boredom result from staying in bed, wasting away. Also, illness such as cancerous diseases and other sicknesses decline the quality of life. Of course, pain plays a role in this matter. It’s very difficult to function in everyday life when pain is a constant companion. To most people with any of these problems, in their point of view, value of existence can be low. Continuing along on this issue,...

The Cure for Horrible Bosses

...In the recent film comedy Horrible Bosses, three truly dreadful managers make their employees’ lives miserable. The fi rst is a cruel executive who dangles a promotion in front of a subordinate as bait, only to snatch it away once his stupid demands have been met. The second is a mean cokehead who inherits the family business from his kindly deceased father. The third is an orthodontist who sexually harasses her assistant, threatening to tell his fi ancée that it’s his fault. The victims in the movie can’t quit. They need the jobs. Instead, they compose elaborate, farcical plots to eliminate the bosses. In real life, horrible bosses are the stuff of tragedy, not comedy. Workplace discontent is no joke. Some surveys show that as many as half of American workers feel low levels of work engagement, stemming in part from poor management. It’s not insults that cause the greatest harm, but rather callousness about people’s time. Horrible bosses want control. They expect subordinates to be on call 24/7 and to hit unrealistic deadlines with limited resources. When the work product is delivered, horrible bosses may ignore it for long intervals, making it clear that the deadline was artifi cial and the stress unnecessary. To minimize the impact of horrible bosses, companies can ensure that performance reviews are based on objective measures, not subjective ones. They can examine tasks and workloads for relevance and fairness. They can off......

Burger King's Horrible, Creepy Ad Campaign Isn't Working

...CMM 310: Introduction to Public Relations Fall 2014 Reflection Paper # 3 September 30, 2014 Burger King's Horrible, Creepy Ad Campaign Isn't Working DEREK THOMPSONJUN 22 2009, 2:30 PM ET 0 inShare More To the surprise of nobody, Burger King's horrible, creepy advertisement campaign is not working, and the company finds itself falling further behind McDonald's according to just-released figures. This strikes a huge blow to the idea that what Americans want from their fast food joint is a Bobblehead King doll who sneaks into your bed, raps about square butts, and terrorizes you from outside your bedroom window. Yes, those were advertisements for hamburgers. In other words, thank you America, for compelling our elites to put the strategic back into strategic advertising. Gawker has been on this story for a while, and they point out that the advertisement firm in charge of creeping out the country was the award-winning team at Crispin Porter Bogusky. Unfortunately for BK and Crispin, they don't award marketshare at advertisement gatherings and in this most crucial category, the company is not keeping track: Between 2003 -- the year before Burger King hired Crispin as agency of record -- and 2008, Burger King's share of the burger-chain market fell to 14.2% from 15.6%, according to Technomic, while McDonald's share rose to 46.8% from 43.6%. McDonald's has posted average annual sales growth of 6.3% compared with BK's 2.9% gain during that period. McDonald's......

Horrible Essay Writer

...Danielle Hufmann 16158396 English 1000 I have a confession to make, one that made me feel empty-headed for many years; I used to be horrible at essays! Throughout my education career I have had a difficult time writing papers, whether it was a creative writing story or a research paper. But as I struggled through every essay in English class I was able to learn a great deal of tips to help me through every mistake I made along the way, which helped me some but still, I felt lost. I have always dreaded having to write essays in English classes because I knew it would most likely only hurt my grade, but all of that changed once I found a teacher who I could open up to and who genuinely cared about me succeeding in her class. I then went from having no confidence in any of my essays, to having a smile on my face when I received them back with an A on the front. I may have struggled when it came to how to construct an essay and how to make it flow, but by the time I finished Mrs. Wiley’s class my junior year all of that changed for me. All right so now I guess the secrets out! Although I may be a good writer now, lets start back at the beginning. As I use to sit there at my desk while the teacher was handing out the rubric for the next writing assignment my hands would start to sweat and the nerves would start to kick in. All I could do was stare at my laptop not knowing where to even start. The only thing that had ever stuck with me is to use......

Horrible Bosses 2 Reaction Paper

...SARAÑA, JULYA KARA B. BSA-5 BA 102 TTH 9:00-10:30 08/04/2015 A Movie Reflection on “Horrible Bosses 2” The movie Horrible Bosses 2 was an entertaining movie in a rated kind of way. Although some parts are too vulgar, I was able to pick up a few good lessons. The story revolves around the life of three gentlemen namely Nick Hendricks, Kurt Buckman, and Dale Arbus. It started when they were able to create a product which is a car wash inspired shower head, the “Shower Buddy”. After capturing the attention of well-known investors who are Bert Hanson, they had a compromise that instead of Mr. Hanson’s company producing their product, Mr. Hanson will provide them a loan to put up a warehouse and the three men in return, will produce 100,000 units of shower buddies for the former. This scenario portrayed the importance of belief in one’s self. Producing something that has not yet been introduced to the public is a talent and skill of being innovative. I admire the three men’s choice of not agreeing to sell their product but to stick with their plan of being the ones to put up their own business. I find this scenario somewhat the same with the previous film being shown in the classroom. On the day Nick, Kurt, and Dale presented their product to Mr. Hanson, he immediately denied them saying that he will be cancelling his order. He only did this so that the three men could not pay the loan thereby resulting to an auction in the “Shower Buddy” products at a lower price. This......

Horrible Augustice Ceaser Essay

...AUGUSTOUS CAESAR Harris Ghumman CHW 3M1 Mr. Cordeiro 1/13/2015 AUGUSTUS CAESER 1 Augustus Caesar’s life was a rather action packed life, and the fact that he has a lot of military, and political experience also helps in his ruling as roman Emperor. From being put into the heir by the emperor, to his death bed he has had an interesting child hood, the formation of the second triumvirate , and death with consequences. Being referred to as Octavian, he was the son of Atia. Atia was the Niece of Julius Caesar. After his father died as the senator, which led to Julius adopting him. As a child he had many health issues and frequently struggled to stay healthy. He was educated in Politics and the matters of Military, which eventually led to him on the verge of joining Julius’s Army. However, Julius Caesar was indeed assassinated in 44 BC, which put him next in line as the correct heir. This led him to later on change his name from Octavian to Augustus. Not much is known about Octavian's first two wives. Claudia was the step-daughter of Marc Antony. Octavian divorced her and married Scribonia, daughter of Lucius Scribonius Libo, in 40 B.C. He married his third and final wife Livia in 39 B.C. She already had one son, Tiberius, and was pregnant with her second, Drusus, when she met Augustus. They were married for 51 years and had one daughter, Julia, together. Julius went on to rule for a very long time, and became one of the most......

...of how to solve scientific questions. Adults have already learned how to do scientific questions one way so when put to take an IQ test now they will preform poorly. Technology has added to the scientific approach people use to solve problems. 2.18. If the Flynn effect is real, does this undermine the theory that IQ is mostly inherited? Why or why not? I believe the Flynn effect is real but I don’t think it undermines the theory that IQ is mostly inherited. I believe some of a person’s intelligence is inherited from their parent/grandparents, but not 100%. Using me as an example; my daughter is very good in math. Throughout my education, I was also very good in math and looking back further, so was my dad. My dad and I are horrible spellers but my sister and my daughter are excellent in remembering how to spell a word. So as far as the Flynn effect, I believe the generations to come will only advance with the help of technology. My daughter’s way of thinking amazing me because it is just different than the way I think; but that’s is because she is taught in school with technology.

I Am Horrible

...You know what? I'm horrible. I tell numerous lies. I make up stories. I push those people who love me away. And, most of all, all of these things that I've done, I still feel like it's their fault. I always put the blame to them, without caring what they would feel. And, sometimes, I hurt them. Not only physically, but mentally too. I really wish this suffering would end though. But the suffering really isn't coming from there. My own suffering planted its roots inside my heart and will never be removed until I have tye courage. But the problem is, I actually don't have it. It sucks for this to happen. I really want to know when did I feel so vulnerable that at times, I actually want to break down and cry. But, I can't for some unknown, and maybe stupid, reasons. I really don't get this feeling. Maybe it's just my hormones reacting. Or maybe I have a psychological disease. I hope it's the first one. Besides, I am at 'that' age. But for some reason, all of my peers are practically, what most would call, normal. Or maybe they're just good at hiding it? Or maybe they have somone who they could talk to about this? I wish I also had one, but it seems it's too late for me to have that kind of wish. 'Cause from the start, I never felt I belong im their circle. The reason why I prefer writing my feelings is that I trust my phone than a living person. No, I'm just kidding. I'd actually choose a phone over someone who could talk to me since I know my phone won't deject......

Horrible Bosses

...REFLECTION PAPER: “Horrible Bosses” One of the worst scenarios that an employee may dream of is having a difficult boss to work under. Bosses that are too strict, give too much work, insensitive or impatient are some of the characteristics that employees don’t like. Let’s face it, I don’t think anyone would like bosses or superiors like that. The film “Horrible Bosses” shows three friends – Nick Hendricks, Dale Arbus and Kurt Buckman struggle working under their own “horrible” bosses. Nick works under David Harken who reprimands Nick and saying that Nick isn’t fit yet for a promotion so he awards it on himself. On the other hand, Dale works as an assistant for Dr. Julia Harris who continues to sexually harass Dale despite of him being engaged. Julia even threatens to show Stacy (Dale’s fiancé) some intimate pictures of her and Dale if he wouldn’t have sex with her. Lastly, since Kurt’s original boss died, he now works for his boss’ son whose name is Bobby that is a drug addict and doesn’t really care about the company at all. With these circumstances, they’ve decided to kill their respective bosses. Over the course of studying Human Resource Management (HRM), I have realized that Human Resource, in its simplest form, is about improving an employee’s work environment in order for the organization to maximize its employee’s skills and potential. The film “Horrible Bosses” illustrated how an employee’s work environment – in this case, their respective employers - can......

Reaction Paper Horrible Boss 2

...Jobs is a 2013 American biographical film inspired by the life of Steve Jobs, from 1974 while a student at Reed College to the introduction of the iPod in 2001. It is directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matt Whitely, and produced by Stern and Mark Hulme. Steve Jobs is portrayed by Ashton Kutcher, with Josh Gad as Apple Computer's (now Apple Inc.) co-founder Steve Wozniak .Jobs was chosen to close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

A job is particularly interested in a course on calligraphy. He meets up with his friend Daniel Kottke (Lukas Haas) who is excited to see that Jobs is holding a copy of Be Here Now by Baba Ram Dass. Influenced by this book and his experiences with LSD, Jobs and Kottke spend time in India. Two years later, Jobs is back in Los Altos, California living at home with his adoptive parents Paul (John Getz) and Clara (Lesley Ann Warren). He is working for Atari and develops a partnership with his friend Steve Wozniak (Josh Gad) after he sees that Wozniak has built a personal computer (the Apple I). They name their new company Apple Computer, though there already is a company called Apple Records that is......

Why Stronger Summer Gdp Is Horrible News

...Why Stronger Summer GDP Is Horrible News (November 15, 2013) This article talks about how the initial numbers on GDP were actually higher than first recorded. Economists are now saying that the U.S. economy most likely grew above a 3% annual rate in the third quarter, which is more than .2% higher than the government’s initial reading of 2.8%. This was due to a report this past Friday that showed a larger-than-expected gain in some September inventories. • J.P. Morgan Chase and Barclays economists uped their estimates to 3.1%. • Pierpont Securities economist Stephen Stanley put the growth rate at 3%. • Macroeconomic Advisers had their tracking estimate at an enormous 3.3% At a 3% pace, this GDP growth would be the fastest since the first quarter of 2012, a slight improvement for this economy which has been stuck at a 2% expansion since the recovery began in mid-2009. GDP growth has exceeded 3% only four times since the recession’s end. The article goes on saying on how the headline figures in economic reports often obscure troubling trends below the surface. So the buildup in inventories, for example, essentially means many goods produced by the economy over the summer went unsold, and are now left on stores’ shelves. A Commerce Department report on last Thursday showed the government most likely underestimated the negative impact of the trade deficit in its third-quarter GDP estimate. The U.S. trade gap with other countries widened 8% in September from August, as......
