You took the time to figure me out and i know thats not easy. I still don’t know what I did to be so lucky to have you in my life, my dream come true. I am so thankful…...

The Roaring Twenties

...The Roaring Twenties, Jazz Age, and the Golden Years were names synonymous for the 1920’s. The economic boom after World War 1 liberated the American people resulting in an increase in population who were happy and worry-free. This inspired artists and writers to be creative. Some stories helped people dream and conquer all but others showed the hardships people faced. The Algonquin Round Table Journalists, editors, actors, and press agents met on a regular basis at the Algonquin Hotel in New York began meeting in June 1919 and continued fro eight years. They contributed to hit plays, bestselling books, and popular newspaper columns. They shared admiration for each other’s work. These people had very high standards and they were very outspoken, outrageous, and they often quoted one each other. This group began to fade away as The Great Depression neared. They were a great example of American artists F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote several stories with The Great Gatsby being his most famous work. This story helped inspire people to believe that they could dream anything and achieve it. Fitzgerald’s stories were mainly about people becoming very successful in the social and financial worlds, but they did not share the same prosperity and the morals. He also wrote This Side of Paradise. Unfortunately, not all books were happy and motivating. Several writers wrote about the hardships people faced in the 1920’s. In Alain Locke’s The New Negro, Locke wrote about the...

When I Was One and Twenty

...When I was One-and-Twenty Summary Our speaker gets some advice from an older, wiser person: don't bank too much on love. Like any young person, he promptly ignores the advice. Did we mention that he's 21? Keep that in mind. It'll be important later. Flash forward: now he's 22. And as it turns out, the advice he got was pretty good. Love hurts. And we're not just quoting that '80s song. Line 1-2 When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, • Uh-oh. Any time a literary work starts out with a wise man's sayings, you just know that they're probably going to be ignored. If we listened to wise advisors, we wouldn't have any stories to tell. And poems are stories, after all. • So, we've got a young whippersnapper and his older mentor. Stay tuned, folks…. Lines 3-6 "Give crowns and pounds and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies But keep your fancy free." • Well, it turns out that love is worth more than gold. Or, er…the lack of love is worth more than gold. • Don't let the happy tone and snappy rhymes confuse you: this poem is about control. It turns love into an economic calculation, one which allows the "wise man" to balance feelings against more conventional forms of currency (crowns and pounds and guineas are, after all, the big guns of the U.K.'s monetary system). As it turns out, the heart is more valuable than money – which is precisely why the speaker's buddy thinks that it should remain soundly within his control. • Of course,......

...curriculum activities have build up the path to expand individual’s education. In order to pursue my long time goal which is to obtain a bachelors in accounting /marketing I have prepared myself by taking the following courses. I believe that in order to succeed in the field that I am approaching one must learn not only arithmetic, but also in government I would probably need to understand politics and the economy of the state. Language skills are also required when communicating with customers who speak a different native language. As an American citizen one is expected to properly speak and write proper English. Even though science and culinary arts may not have anything to do with what I want to study it will make me a more educated and prepared person that can further help me in an everyday situation. Math has always been one of my favorite subjects I enjoy learning new ways to solve equations and math has always been linked to other academic subjects such as physics, dates in history events, and even in everyday life. Extracurricular activities not only look nice in a resume, it also encourages an individual to stay focus in academics because if the grades are not good one is not eligible to participate. Although I may not turn out to be professional dancer there is much more than that, we learn leadership, discipline, and most important sister hood. I may not be involved in many activities not because I do not want to, but because I think that being involved in......

After Twenty Years

...Twenty years earlier, he explains, he and his friend had dinner at a restaurant called "Big Joe" Brady's, which used to be located where the hardware store stands. The officer confirms that this was the site of the restaurant up until five years earlier, when it was torn down. At the time of their last meal together, the man continues, he was eighteen years old and his friend Jimmy was twenty. The two had grown up together and were the closest of friends, but the man was leaving the next morning to go out to the West to find his fortune, and Jimmy was the type of person who would never leave New York. After eating their dinner that night, they agreed that no matter where they were or what they were doing, they would both do all they could to return to that same spot at that exact same time, ten o'clock, exactly twenty years later. The officer expresses interest, asking why they had been in contact so seldom over the past twenty years. The man briefly explains that he has been busy in the West trying to make his fortune. He checks the time on his watch, which is adorned with diamonds, indicating that he has been successful in his business endeavors. The time is three minutes before ten o'clock, the precise moment that they are scheduled to meet. The officer stays a few minutes more, and it is after ten o'clock when he says goodbye and leaves. The man waits twenty minutes more. Finally, another man approaches, bundled up against the light rain that has started to fall.......

Dream Deferred and When I Was One and Twenty

...with the poems "Dream Deferred" and "When I Was One and Twenty". They speak the same kind of concept in terms of life goals. In "When I Was One and Twenty", the old wise man says not to give your heart away so young because you will regret it. Whether he is talking about having your heart broken by someone at a young age or giving up on your dreams to settle down isn't known. If a person gives up on their dreams or puts them on the back burner to pursue a relationship, it is the same as a raisin in the sun. Although a raisin is a dried up grape that is still full of nutrition, it becomes hard and useless after a while. Such would be the case with life goals, if you put them on hold to pursue a relationship, they become useless over time and forgotten. If a young person enters a relationship while in college lets say, their focus is no longer on school really. Most want to spend as much time as possible with the other. As the writer looks back upon himself in "When I Was One and Twenty", he basically says that he should've listened to the old man's advice. He is only twenty two at that point and already regrets the decision he made to give his heart away. There are plenty of people that will tell you that they had given up on their dreams to continue a relationship. Whether it be letting a dream job be passed up or an opportunity to do something they have always wanted to. Some people might have the perfect relationship as one of their dreams. Giving your heart away......

Twenty Four

...Twenty Four - Best Show on TV I. INTRO: 1. Attention: Which CTU agent was executed in season three of "24"? When did the vindictive Nina and Sherry die? How does Jack Bauer return to CTU after being assumed dead at the conclusion of season four? 2. Credibility: I have not missed a single episode of twenty four since its deputed 5 years ago. Tonight the show is on from 8pm-9pm but you better believe that the TIVO is set. 24 revolutionized the after work action/drama genre for me. It deals with contemporary issues, real and more or less plausible terrorist threats, and a real-time hourly format, 24 redefined my expectations for all shows going forward. 3. Thesis: 24 is a great alternative to mindless, dull, and uninteresting television shows that flood the airways today. 24 is sure to grasp your attention away from other shows such as “The Apprentice©”, “Americas Funniest Home Videos©”, and “Gilmore Girls©” that sure the same time slot. II. BODY: 1. NEED STEP: A. There are many shows on television that just don’t catch the attention of the viewers. If any of you are like my uncle you may just watch whatever show the remote takes you too. While this can be entertaining, it does may not satisfy you as much as it could. B. Although “CSPAN©” may teach you politics, “Iron Chef©” may enhance your cooking skills, and “WWE Raw©” may give some that macho soap opera experience; none of these shows will give you the overall......

The Twenty Sixth Amendment and You?

...the power to vote makes me feel important and lets me feel like a true citizen should feel like. This gives me the privilege to make a difference. One more reason that the 26th Amendment is beneficial to our country is that young voters can start early on the feel of voting. They now have experience on the process it takes to vote and will be better prepared in the future. The Youth is the future and the better we are prepared the better this country will run. Let the Youth go out and start the adulthood early so that they can get a head start on the political views and have more of an interest on them. Voting is our given right, which men have died to keep. Voting shows our peoples might, so our country won't get into deep. But there are those who never vote, and constantly seem to complain. Patriotism they don't promote, and their rights they choose to abstain. Every vote does really count, to let our officials know. For their actions they must account, or their ratings will never grow. So come next election time, go cast your vote with pride. Voting doesn't cost a dime plus the outcome you help decide. "Political Poems." One of the biggest reasons many people oppose to this amendment is that changing the legal age to vote changes to how ideal of adult hood. Statistics say that the human mind isn’t fully grown till the age twenty six. That is many years away from eighteen, so they say they don’t want a bunch of kids running the country who aren’t even mature enough to......

The Roaring Twenties

...THE ROARING TWENTIES AN AGE OF JAZZ By: Vinson Gill Instructor: Dr. C.A. deGregory “The Golden Twenties or the Roaring Twenties as the 1920’s has been known to be called; when everybody seemed to have had money to party. The nightmare of the Wall Street Crash of October 1929 was inconceivable right up until it happened. While looking backward in time, when we hear “The Roaring Twenties” we tend to think almost automatically: mobsters, flappers, the Charleston (dance), a nightlife that seemingly was the highlight of the day, and that is what Hollywood would have you believe. Actually Hollywood has its beginnings in the twenties and celebrated the culture. The new fad was a new music form called Jazz; a culture for a new generation, a passion for the young adult, a crossover appeal that rocked the urbanites of America and a passionate people who were not just fascinated by jazz but supported it. Langston Hughes described jazz as, “The music from the trumpet at the Negroes lips is honey mixed with liquid fire.” At first the art form was not accepted by black intellectuals. Most blacks distanced themselves from a music that seems to draw white attention to black culture; criticized and called it folk art. Jazz was born in brothels, performed in speakeasies which were illegal, actually brought together music lovers of all races in some clubs. Jazz went from being played only in New Orleans to becoming a staple of the American airwaves, dance halls, and homes. African......

Jazz the Roaring Twenties

...I. Introduction a. A testament to the United States' unprecedented prosperity in the Roaring Twenties, jazz's growing popularity sparked a grave controversy, with many viewing the appeal of jazz as either an annoyance or a threat. b. Should the testament to the United States’ prosperity in the Roaring Twenties about jazz’s growing popularity be viewed as an annoyance or threat? c. Jazz’s growing popularity in the United States in a time known as the Roaring Twenties, was a dramatic turning point in the American life. The growing of this musical industry meant jazz would be thrived in adversity and come to symbolize a certain kind of American freedom, and would be called upon to lift the spirits and raise the morale of a frightened country. The growing of this genre would break barriers between Americans.  II. Body a. Opponents of this position protest that jazz was an annoyance and a threat to America. People in the mid-twenties argued that “it is not music at all. It is merely an irritation of the nerves of hearing, a sensual teasing of the strings of physical passion.” They claimed that a moral disaster was upon young American girls at this time due to the “pathological, nerve-irritating, sex-exciting music of jazz orchestras." Also, the origins of jazz were claimed to be “the Negro’s brothels of the South”, which left many white older people to be appalled when they saw their children dancing to jazz music. Some even felt that playing this music......

1. Is the Mystery Man with Twenty-One Faces a Great Criminal? Why or Why Not

...1. Is the Mystery Man with Twenty-One faces a great criminal? Why or why not? Great criminals are those who threaten the laws of a sovereign. Laws only serve as vulnerable limitations, to which criminals seek to surpass. German Philosopher Walter Benjamin suggests that the law breaking tendencies of criminals create admiration and envy amongst the public. In the case of the mystery man with twenty faces, the popularity their crimes garnered from the media and subsequent praise from the public suggests the group to be great criminals. This admiration from the public suggests a social acceptance and vicarious envy to the criminal that succeeded in breaking the crime, and for the most part got away with it. Through the lens of Walter Benjamin and Marilyn Ivy, one can further denote whether the mystery man with twenty-one faces was really a great criminal. The mystery man with twenty faces was an alias for a group of individuals who wrote blackmail letters and threats to chaebols. The anonymity they were able to keep and the fear they were able to instill amongst their victims further exemplify them to be great criminals. Marylin Ivy posits that the group “showed a remarkable savvy about the powers of the media and they demonstrated this savvy tactics that both prefigured and crosscut the dominance of electronic mediation” (Ivy 16). Their ability to stay operational and undetected strengthens their “power” as criminals and allows for a story that the public would rather not...

Twenty-One Is Too Long

...Twenty-one is too long The issue of alcohol consumption dates as far back as 4,000 BC. Currently the only limitation on consuming and purchasing alcohol is the twenty-one drinking age. It is an irrational law that should be changed to eighteen. Once an individual is eighteen they are legally an adult with the freedom to vote, enlist in the military, gable, rent a honey bucket, and many more responsibilities. If a person is allowed to vote, then they should be allowed to drink, voting is a higher responsibility than drinking. According to Szalavitz, at age eighteen the brain is still not fully developed and drinking only harms the developing brain. The issue isn’t about it being bad health wise, but rather it being illegal. It is widely known that people under the legal age drink regardless of the law. The legal age of consuming alcohol should be lowed to eighteen due to it being less of a responsibility than some responsibilities that are granted at eighteen, there would be less teenage criminals and less alcohol related problems. A shocking 80% of all high school students admitted to drinking alcohol ( This high number shows that the legal age is simply being overlooked by teenagers; the efforts in place have repeatedly failed. Once a underage teenager does get caught with alcohol in their possession, they receive a M.I.P meaning “Minor in Possession” which is a misnomer offence. A MIP charge carries a fine and additional punishments which vary by state....
