This Is My Swamp
It is alleged that Lord Farquaad had violated the rights and freedom of many characters in the movie Shrek. There is multiple times he is seen going against the creatures and people of the land.
Lord Farquaad makes Shrek go on a quest, this goes against Shrek's rights and freedoms according to section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

His life is being threatened while attempting to rescues the princess[4].
Mobility rights is section 6 in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Lord Farquaad forced all fairy tale creatures to leave their own land. This is the violation of section 6.1, where it states you have the right to move as you please.

...Wole Soyinka’s Swamp Dwellers, a play built on the rural setting, is a blunt exposition of the religious hypocrisy,typical in a culturally and economically backward society in any parts of the world. Wole Soyinka, the most distinguished playwright of Africa, exposes the irreligious acts of the religious men in a very Chaucerean way.The character through which he dose it is obviously the Kadiye who reminds us about Chaucer’s religious character in his The Canterbury Tales The Summoner. The Kadiye,the religious figure in Wole Soyinka’s Swamp Dwellers,is masterfully portaryed and is very covincing.Kadiye is portrayed in this drama as the main priest of the sawmp dwellers.Though he is a priest by his profession ,he is anything but pious.He is essentially a corrupt and self-centered person.But Kadiye is not the sole example of his type.There are many kadiyes in every part of the world.There are some hypocrites who trade religion and live on it.This typical feature of Kadiye makes him more convincing. The physical feature of Kadiye indicates that he is more like a villain than to be a religious person.He is fat like a blood-swollen insect.He is a monstrous looking person.He is described as ’a big ,voluminous creature of about fifty.’He is smooth-faced and his head is shaved clean.He is bare above the waist and at least half of his fingers are ringed.This physical look suggests something ugly about his moral nature.Kadiye is very rich and has a good control over the swamp like a......

...the state, with colder, snowier, and icier weather more likely across northern and central Georgia. Summer daytime temperatures in Georgia often exceed 90 °. The state experiences widespread precipitation. Tornadoes and tropical cyclones are common. Since moving to Georgia in 2007, there were a few issues that concerned me. The swamps that were in our training areas were full of life and yet we continued to build on them moving the wild life out. Then there was the issue that every year during Spring Break, thousands of college students would make their way to Tybee Island so that they may party for two weeks on the beach. Each year for those two weeks, the beaches were littered with trash and crews would have to clean up after them. Trash would be taken out into the ocean by the waves and marine life would suffer because kids wanted to party. Over the past few years, the military has decided that building on the swamp lands would be brought to a halt and any building that was needed would be done in areas that were more suitable. This a lone have allowed for the ecosystems within the swamps to thrive and grow. Then the Mayor of Tybee Island finally got tired of the mess that was left behind by the college students that partied for two weeks that he has discontinued the Spring Break party fest at the beach. Now the marine life is in less danger from our trash and poison that we contributed every year during that......

Swamp Rabbit

...The Swamp Rabbit of Missouri LaShonda Howard University of Phoenix BIO/101 August 10, 2015 Linda Mottison (2015, February 6).  Swamp Rabbit of Missouri Introduction The (Sylvilagus aquaticus) or Swamp Rabbit, a native of Missouri, is by far the largest of the cottontail family. While they are the largest, they have the smallest ears of them all. The term “cottontail” is the defining character trait of the tail of the rabbit when raised that resembles a piece of fluffy cotton. Even though the swamp rabbit looks similar to other eastern cottontails, they are larger and darker in color – dark brown, rust and sometimes black. Once densely populating the southern United States frequently along the mighty Mississippi, Swamp rabbits are found abiding in lowlands, swamps, floodplains, and marshlands. The swamp rabbit is playing impactful roles in both the ecosystem and economic system. However, the extensive hunt of the species along with human development and expansion continues to erode the habitat and creates obstacles for survival (2013).  The decline, teetering on extinction in some places, will continue unless we push the habitat needs to the forefront. One such place in Missouri is the Mingo National Wildlife Refuge in southeast Missouri. Environment Description and Role of Organism Never more than two kilometers away from water, the very moist, humid, and often hot environment of the Swamp Rabbit is the wetlands. They prefer residing in areas such as......

That It Could Never Happen

...morning with a light layer of snow on the ground from last night and I was ready to get the day going. I was out hunting this morning with my brother hoping that we were going to get the deer to fill our tags. We split up like we always do. I Went to the swamp he went to the feild. On my way there I was seeing what I thought were bobcat tracks but I didn't worry about it so I went checked to see if there was any markings in the near by tree line, Except there was nothing but another foot print in the trees behind the left side bank. There was nothing that was looking like there was anything that resembled a deer track to a scuf mark on any of the trees near the bank but when I got back from the scan of the area I heard a scraping so I stood still and i sat in the swamp. Then it was nothing that was heard from the scraping until I got back into the tree stand. When the scraping started again I went and started to work the sounds out andthink to of what it could be. I was about 100 yards away from the stand. I started to see that there was bark from trees that had been ripped off so went down to the bay of the swamp. I started see that there was tracks of deer but there were also prints that never seen before. It had the look of a dog but the tracks end on the far left side of the swamp were I couldn't go. I saw movement in the bush that was near the stand where my brother gutted his deer I had a idea what the animal might be so went to see if there was any way that there was......

Role Play

...-As the young Uchiha looked around, he saw that he was surrounded and gave up, or as it seemed. He then threw his katana in the East direction, and let all of the clones stab him with their blades. After this happening, the clone would smirk as it's face would morph and distort into snakes and slither, falling to the Earth as this happened, the clons probably finally noticing the young Uchiha had a clone fighting this entire time. The real Mikamo was hidden underground, still focusing his energy. As he felt the thunk of the blade of his weapon hit the Earth, he sighed. 'Well, guess my clone wasn't enough...Oh well, time for some real fun, oh and let's not forget my snake..' he said as he performed a few handsigns, signaling the snakes mind to know to move from the gecko, as it slithered away, dirt from above the earth crumpled down onto him and into his hair. 'Oh bother,' he said in a Poo bear style,' looks like that fat gecko landed. And I hope he knows he's not the only one with tricks up his sleeve..' he said as he thrusted his arm upward, his hand pushing through the earth. Knowing that it would be hardly visible, he clawed the earth apart, digging himself out. He was wearing the same attire as the clone from before, except it was smeared with grime from underground, and his katana had been upgraded several times from the clones. As his head was able to reach through the earth, he clawed harder and eventually was able to dig himself out. He stood tall, looking at the......

Great Lakes Art Fair

...experience that I will tell my family about for weeks to come. This art fair reminds me of the Black Swamp festival that is in Bowling Green every year. There was art vendors as far as the eye could see. I enjoyed my time there looking at all different kinds of art, from the more contemporary styles, to classical works of art that looked as if they were taken from museum floors. The show consists of 200 artist displays, and includes free access to decorated gardens and a student art display as well. One of my favorite aspects of the festival was just the amount of art there was there. It was interesting seeing artists make pottery by hand, and showing off their tapestries that some of which took years to complete. It was really amazing to see these things, and to see how close and similar their techniques were, as to what we learned in class. Another thing that amazed me at the fair was the glassblowing demonstrators. Glass blowing has always been something that interests me. It was so cool seeing these people take molten globs of glass, and turning them into amazing bowls, vases and abstract works of art. It was really amazing to see some of the tapestries that these artists had worked on. In some cases their designs looked extremely similar to the sample projects that we had just finished. It was really cool to see what they did, and see the correlation between stitches and weaves, and to understand which ones that had done on their pieces. By far one of my favorite......

...Part 1. Report to Danny Wilco To: Danny Wilco From: Kay Smith Subject: Re: Ordering product for EBBD from the Kentucky Hooch and Beer Company Background: Our efforts to increase sales of Kentucky Swamp Brew, for our college aged customers, Brew received mixed support from area retailers. For example, our advertising campaign was initially productive, we received a 75% increase in retail orders for three continuous weeks (the duration of the advertising campaign). However, retail orders dropped off 20% when the advertising campaign ended. We appeared to have limited insight on customer interest in Kentucky Swamp Brew and we also failed to properly coordinate with the brewery so they can have supplies on hand to meet projected and actual retail orders. Strategy: For product ordering, I employed a three phase strategy. The first phase was to order more products from KHBC Brewery then current retail order level so we would have inventory on hand to support increased orders, when the advertising efforts took effect. The second phase was to order products based on increased retail order level while adjusting the final order to compensate for brewery delivery in efficiencies. The third phase, towards the end of the Kentucky Swamp Brew sales campaign was to adjust ordering so excess inventory would be controlled. Results: From the attached excel product you will see that our ordering strategy was effective as we were able to stay up with customer demands,......

Reaction Paper on Summer Days with Coo

...there is still swamps in the area. Kappas are free to swim in the swamps because it is their home. There is still peace in the surroundings. They can freely do what they wanted to do without being distracted by other. It’s just unfortunate that Coo and his father encountered some drunken guys, one of which is a samurai, and then they were scared that the father of Coo heard their dark little secret. So they prefer to kill the father of Coo. Now going back to the cultural aspects, in the present time, a lot had changed. The surroundings was changed, the means of transportation, the population growth, the clothing, and many more was changed. Even the uttered words aren’t that same as to before. The place where Coo used to live before was now turned into a modern environment. 2. The use of Formal and Casual Japanese Language The movie used formal and casual Japanese language because I have understood some of the words uttered by the characters because it was discussed to us by the instructor in school. The movie was easily understood also by the presence of the subtitle. But then, the movie is understandable by just merely reading the actions done by the characters. To be specific with where formal Japanese was used, it is when he went to other place where the little boy used a formal language because according to my research, Japanese people used formal Japanese when meeting other people they do not know. 3. Learning I have learned a lot from this movie. First......

Im a Believer

...DreamWorks, American computer-animated fantasy comedy Shrek, written by Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Joe Stillman, and Roger S.H. Schulman, is a different fairytale movie than we are use too. This movie has a combination of romance, action, fantasy, and mystery in one great comedy movie. The movie Shrek is about a large ogre that goes on a worldwide adventure to rescue a princess. Shrek brings the meaning of a fairytale to a completely different level. A fairytale love story about a large green ogre, an outspoken Donkey, and Fiona, a princess different than most. The movie is an astonishing visual that has animation techniques that are very life like and fantastical all at the same time. DreamWorks motion picture Shrek is a well written movie with its great animation and wonderful characters. Shrek is a large green ogre that lives in a swamp surrounded by “Keep Out” signs. All that the ogre wants is to be left alone. Maybe he does not want to be left alone but maybe he is just lonely. Mike Myers is the voice of Shrek and he does a wonderful job. Eddie Murphy, the voice of Donkey, has a sense of sarcasm. Donkey is lonely and he just wants a friend and he loves to talk. Fiona, voice by Cameron Diaz, is the princess locked in the top of a castle that is protected by a fire breathing dragon. Shrek’s swamp has been “swamped” with many popular fairytale creatures such as The Three Little Pigs, The Big Bad Wolf, Tinkerbell, Three Blind Mice, and many more creatures by the order of......

The Big Two Hearted River

...Our society has become increasingly more keen on the thought of warfare. More and more people especially in USA have a very calm and naive approach on the subject. This has a negative effect on the help for the injured soldiers, both physically and mentally. The short story Big two-hearted river is a sample of how soldiers have to repair and find inner peace by themself. Character: Nick is a very strong minded man, he keeps on going until he has achieved his goal. He must be a physically strong man, because of the strength needed to carry the load of his backpack. He is in a situation, where he for some reason need to punish himself and push his body to the limit. We can see this in his own quotation: “ “I´ve got a right to eat this kind of stuff, if I´m willing to carry it” Nick said” The narrater finishes it by saing: “ He did not speak again.” (Page 5, line 1 and 2) He shows his mental strength and weakness here. His strength because he is able to carry his own food all day and wait until he arives to eat it, eventhough it might be tempting. He is weak because he doesn´t just eat something from the forest or river. The setting: The area where Nick is hicking have a lot of symbolic places wich references to the battlefield in the 1st. World war. It might look like he is out on a fishing trip, but really he´s out to repair his mind after the war, because it seems like he keeps seeing places from the war, like: “The foundations of the Mansion House hotel......

...tidal wave of complexity already, and these social networking sites make this complexity worse by an order of magnitude. 3. Social networking is in the evolutionary stage, and as such, all of the sites that exist now will change, evolve become either more useful and secure or go away. I also stand by reasons No. 2 and 3. It's imperative to understand the level of complexity social media introduces into a society that is already far too complex—to our detriment. 4. Just when a lot of people learn to use one of the social networking sites/systems, someone will come up with a newer, better, cooler or more fashionable one. As for No. 4, while still true, it is less of a concern as the sites have grown through the initial phase and are now entering a new growth based on text messaging and smart phones instead of e-mail and personal computers. Get ready to learn all over again. 5. Security of social networking sites is as great a risk as passing business cards around in a busy bar. No matter how many times the site owner/operator promises your information will be protected, secure, etc., the lure of money will make them liars. Someone will buy the site for the contacts that come with it—period. Reason No. 5 is more of a temptation and threat than ever before. Some of this has already happened, in spite of reassurances and safeguards claimed to protect privacy and personal information. More will happen. My prediction in early 2012 is that by 2013, Facebook, LinkedIn and a few......

Learning to Use Language and Issues of Profound Importance to Teachers

...interactionist theory. Interactionist theory states that language develops as a result of the environment in which children live and their interactions with others. For example I was one of five children brought up in a small country town in a Catholic family. My father was a wharfie and my mother a house wife - she never ever went out to work. Much of my childhood was spent with cousins on their farm, or at home with my brother and sisters. We had very few books in our house and no television. We played in the paddocks, climbed trees, swung on rope swings, played in the creek, caught tadpoles in the swamp, played cops and robbers, and cowboys and Indians. I did not go to playgroup nor did I go to pre-school. Mum decided I did not need them because I had enough to keep me occupied. So most of my early language learning was done with close family. Mum had the power of control over what I learnt up until school age, because she was the one who chose my companions. By choosing my playmates until I went to school, mum controlled my language acquisition. This pre-school acquisition of language will be basic to my primary discourse as a teacher. I would like to consider one aspect of this primary discourse which is, because of my Catholic background, how will I relate to particular children? For example I was taught to be humble, you do not 'big note yourself', you do not brag about your achievements. If you are good at something let other people find out, you do not need to tell......

Virtually all the energy you use was created by biological processes. (Oil and coal are both ultimately derived from plant matter.) D. Biology connects to my life due to many factors; for one my school is almost completely surrounded by a swamp in which, occasionally, I see its various organisms and plant species. Another way biology connects to my everyday life is the bread I eat, in which before it’s made into a sandwich (or even into bread for that matter) scientists and agriculturists use the biological principles behind yeast to make the bread. Another factor is the garden I pass by in order to get to my bus stop; this is listed as a factor because the gardeners who grew the garden used their knowledge of plants in order to grow the plants. E. Biology connects to my daily life because this branch of science also studies all the processes of the human body. And since I am human (I think?) it connects to my daily life as well. For......
