Why We Go To Malls

There are a number of reasons why people shop at malls. For one thing, people malls extremely convenient. In addition malls provide shoppers with a great variety of stores and shopping opportunities. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, malls are great places for entertainment.

Malls are convenient places to shop. They provide shoppers with abundant and secure parking areas. Shoppers need not drive around for fifteen minutes looking for a parking place, nor need they be afraid to walk to their cars after they have completed their shopping. Malls are usually totally indoors so people are comfortable why they shop. They do not they do not have to be subject to the elements as they go from store to store. Finally, the most convenient aspect of the mall is its one stop shopping experience.

Variety is another advantage of the mall. There are specialty stores, such as candle stores, bath and beauty stores and music and video stores. These are the anchors of the mall, and the mall provides "odd stores" for those eccentric shoppers who are looking for different items.

Finally, the mall is a wonderful entertainment center. Not only do people go there to shop, but they also got there for relaxation. There are movies sometimes as many as fifteen or sixteen. In addition, arcades are available for children, teens and adults. Some parents drop their children off at the arcade, give them a roll of quarters and pick them up after they have completed their shopping. For the hungry shopper there is a food court, which provides fast food for those shoppers who want to relax and possibly have a cocktail with their meal, other restaurants are available. The mall even offers concerts, outings and other events, especially during the holiday periods.

As one can easily see, the mall is indeed, a great place to shop. Where one is looking for convenience variety, or entertainment, no place beats the mall. So next time a friend says, "lets go to the mall" pack your bag and get set for a fun day.

[pic][pic]Gone are those leisurely picnic days with the budding of malls all over the country. People have lesser time and seek entertainment, food and shopping all at one place. Malls make a convenient outlet for us. Our family recently visited the Hyderabad Central.

Hyderabad Central is amongst the most happening malls in the city. There are multi-cuisine food courts, multi-plex cinema and shops of all kinds under one roof. Mother shopped enthusiastically for monthly rations. We now moved onto shopping for clothes for Diwali. There were so many bags. We had to go down to the parking to put them into our car!

Shopping always makes me hungry. We now moved on towards the multi-cuisine food courts while my sister and I preferred to gorge on pizzas, our parents preferred diet coke with sandwiches and cold salad. Now food usually makes one lethargic and we needed to rest. Still shopping had to be done. So we opted to view the Harry Potter movie showing at the multi-plex. It was a lovely movie. My sister slept through half of it.

The time was apt for tea before we could take on another bout of shopping. This time we shopped for shoes and accessories. The sweet mart had an assorted range of toffees and jujebes. Very artistically molded chocolates and peppermint were in shapes of animals and dolls. Shopping had just begun to get better. I love visiting malls.

Essay On A Visit To A Shopping Mall.My favorite place to visit is the shopping mall. It has two stories and there are many different kinds of stores to visit. There are clothes stores, music and movie stores, arcade rooms and restaurants. One of the stores that I like to go to is the music store so that I can check out the new music releases. My favorite music is country and I can enjoy listening using the store’s headphones and music screens.

Whenever I go, I always go to the country music section and look for particular artists and their new songs. In the clothes stores, they not only have clothing, but sell jewelry, perfume, shoes, and other items. My favorite section is the perfume counter. I always check out the different scents. I also like to try on clothes and I like to buy them! sometimes I look at jewelry, particularly earrings, but there are times when I look at rings and watches.

There are times when I like to go to the arcade room to play some of the games. There are games that give you a certain amount of tickets depending upon what score in the game you receive. They also have games that you just play with another person. I enjoy the game of pool the most. I also like to eat in the mall’s restaurants, especially if it’s a Chinese or Mexican restaurant.

I love stir-fry and tacos. Thismakes my visit to the mall worth it and these are the reasons why the shopping mall is one of my favorite places to go.

The call for the journey comes after Joliet Jake's release from prison, he had vowed to visit the mother nun at the orphanage they were raised in, and was now forced to go by his brother. Once they arrive they are soon greeted by their friend and mentor Cab Calloway an old friendly janitor from the orphanage who tells them that the bank wants to foreclose on the land.

Anila Jyothi Reddy

...Jyothi Reddy’s Childhood Anila Jyothi Reddy was born in Narasimhula Gudem in Hanumakonda Mandal, Warangal District as the eldest of four children to a common peasant who lost his employment during emergency. Her father joined in Army but could not continue because of his attachment with the family. The attitude he developed in the military was given to Jyothi as inheritance. As it was very difficult for the family to meet both ends, he was forced to enroll Jyothi Reddy at Balasadan - a government orphanage at Hanumakonda - as a motherless child.

During summers, she used to stay at the warden’s house and did the household work for which she was fed. Going to her village was not an option.

My Life Story

...of age, I was placed into an orphanage with kids about the same age as me. At that time I did not know what was happening, or why I was going there. All that I remember about that day is that an old man with grey hair, a long scruffy beard, and a long-sleeve flannel shirt. I assume that he was my grandfather, but I still haven’t been able to confirm that. Some of the days while I was in the orphanage seemed to drag on for weeks at a time. The orphanage was really big; it was shaped like the letter E, if it was looked at from the sky. While some children played on the well designed play areas, the other children slept in beds for a majority of the day. If any child got up out of their bed, they would get the slipper on their bottom. As any child would do, I kept testing the staff that was in charge of the children sleeping. I was the only one getting the slipper and the other children would be laughing at me. This sometimes would go one for the whole day, but then I realized that it was not getting me anywhere. The children only ate breakfast and dinner; sometimes you wouldn’t get anything if you were very bad. In addition, the only thing that I did not know was that I was going to be adopted. When a mother and a father, about the age of forty to forty-five, came to the orphanage and asked if they could meet me and young boy who was name Sasha. Little did I know that Sasha was my brother. The mother and father told me that he had come to the orphanage when he was about two or......

Behavioral Issue in Foster Care

...Issues in Foster Care Most people do not realize foster care originated in England in 1562. By law children from poor families could be placed with wealthy families as indentured servants. Prior to this law children were placed in almshouses, otherwise known as poor houses, which later became the foundation for orphanages. In the almshouses children were subjected to horrible conditions. Many were abused both physically and sexually or were severely neglected. Conditions started to change in 1853 when New York minister Charles Loring Brace started the Free Foster Home Movement which helped make the changes for the beginning of the modern foster system as we know it (A Brief History of the United States Foster Care System). Foster care has been used for centuries, and in the last century and a half the government stepped in and developed the Dept. of Health and Human Services. The Dept. of Health and Human Services began the foster care system in order to take care of children who have been taken from their homes because of neglect or abuse. Foster care came about because the old orphanage system was not working. There was almost as much abuse and neglect in an orphanage as the homes the children were being pulled from. The government had to come up with a better system for the children pulled from their homes. The government came up with the foster care system. The way that the foster care system works is families volunteer to provide a more stable environment than the......

White or Black?

...White or Black? A not so silent part of society at the time, racism is the main theme in Toni Morrison’s short story, “Recitatif”. The story is a recollection of the memory of a friendship effected by many factors, but mainly influenced by race. Although the races are ambiguous to the reader, the main characters Twyla and Roberta deal with an increasingly strained friendship until the two eventually reconcile at an older age. Through the use of first person narration, Morrison presents the issue of race and racism in a controlled, but effective perspective. Twyla’s first person narration is the only view of events we see and in turn becomes our own view. From the beginning of the story when Twyla and Roberta meet we get the sense that there is already a great divide between them, “It was one thing to be taken out of your own bed early in the morning-it was something else to be stuck in a strange place with a girl from a whole other race” (139). We never find out what race Twyla or Roberta is, but this initial introduction shows that at least Twyla is uncomfortable being around Roberta. Is it really important that we know which race is which? Many people, myself included, read this over many times looking for clues that would indicate Twyla and or Roberta’s race. However, the only conclusion I reach is that it is unimportant whether or not we know. The fact that the friendship is interracial is enough to convey the theme. In fact, by not specifying either race it makes......

A Poverty Solution That Starts with a Hug

...A Poverty Solution That Starts With a Hug By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF PERHAPS the most widespread peril children face isn’t guns, swimming pools or speeding cars. Rather, scientists are suggesting that it may be “toxic stress” early in life, or even before birth. This month, the American Academy of Pediatrics is issuing a landmark warning that this toxic stress can harm children for life. I’m as skeptical as anyone of headlines from new medical studies (Coffee is good for you! Coffee is bad for you!), but that’s not what this is. Rather, this is a “policy statement” from the premier association of pediatricians, based on two decades of scientific research. This has revolutionary implications for medicine and for how we can more effectively chip away at poverty and crime. Toxic stress might arise from parental abuse of alcohol or drugs. It could occur in a home where children are threatened and beaten. It might derive from chronic neglect — a child cries without being cuddled. Affection seems to defuse toxic stress — keep those hugs and lullabies coming! — suggesting that the stress emerges when a child senses persistent threats but no protector. Cues of a hostile or indifferent environment flood an infant, or even a fetus, with stress hormones like cortisol in ways that can disrupt the body’s metabolism or the architecture of the brain. The upshot is that children are sometimes permanently undermined. Even many years later, as adults, they are more likely to suffer heart......

The Ultimate Sacrifice

...The Ultimate Sacrifice: Trading Everything for Love To sacrifice is to give up something precious in order to gain or maintain something worthy, such as a cherished relationship. Often we sacrifice what we love the most for the sake of family, friends or anything that is dear to us. We sometimes do this to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, or to contribute to a greater cause. Every day, men and women sacrifice their jobs and career aspirations for their families. Giving up their own individual passions and eradicating their future plans illustrates the true nature of sacrifice and a powerful force commonly known as love. Philosophy expert, Aaron Ben-Zeév states in his article from “Psychology Today,” “relationships require few sacrifices and more compromises” (Ben-Zeév). However, through examining Khaled Hosseini’s famous novel, A Thousand Splendid Suns, I determined that love always requires sacrifice. Amongst the growing conflicts of the Middle East, the fates of two Afghani women are interwoven as they are both forced into a marriage (with the same man) that does not represent genuine love. Instead, they are enslaved to a relationship dominated by physical violence and backlash from their cruel and abusive husband, Rasheed. They are in a constant struggle with suffering and hardships with the only thing left to live for being hope alone. In Khaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid Suns, the tragic theme of love and sacrifice is unveiled as the lives of Laila...

...2003 a peace agreement was signed and in 2006 they had their first democratic election. In 2010, oil was discovered and by 2012 instability returned back for the Congo people. The filmed featured the rangers fighting for the Virunga National park because Soco International began exploring for oil. What is interesting about this film is that the Congo government welcomed Soco International singing chants and praises as they arrive. Other residents, also supported Soco International because they were bribed with money. On the other hand, these fellow rangers devoted their life to the national park. It was apart of their culture and who they were and what they strongly believed in. My personal favorite part of the film was the gorilla orphanage that had 4 most adorable gorillas. There names were Maisha, Kaboko, Nedsa, Khaski. Each gorilla had their unique characteristics. For example, Kaboko was described as very aggressive but had a great affection to others.

Coco Chanel

...People often ask me, "When did you first become interested in Coco Chanel?" and if I'm honest, I was fascinated long before I started researching her biography more than a decade ago, all the way back to my earliest memories in childhood. For there on top of my mother's dressing table stood a bottle of Chanel No. 5, beyond my reach but not out of sight, and I knew from the moment I began to discern its mysterious letters and number that there was something magical to the black-and-white cipher. I'm not alone in that discovery -- Chanel has come to represent the essence of everywoman, whether in the scent of her perfume or her choice of bold red lipstick or the perfect little black dress -- but the story of Coco feels somehow entwined with my own as a writer. And so it was that I found myself on a journey, following clues that Chanel had kept hidden in her long life as a couturiere and fashion icon while also trying to make sense of the unhappy end of my marriage, the latter disaster coinciding with my signing a publishing contract. Thereafter, in the process of uncovering the truth about Coco Chanel, I was -- without quite knowing it at the time -- recovering from an unforeseen emotional unraveling. Now, in retrospect, I'm beginning to see that I could not have written my book on Coco Chanel without that personal experience of loss; nor would I have found a way forward for myself without looking back at the example set by Mademoiselle Chanel. The trail began in Paris at 31......
