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. Although it is never stated it is inferred that the mother at the orphanage scared Jake with the concept of evil, and wanted to go on this journey in order to cleanse himself of this evil. This is a transformative crisis because Jake has never before been a religious man, he has never before worried about the after life. It is a sudden irrational fear which derives from the lecture which the nun gave them upon their return to the orphanage.

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. From 5th class to 10th class, Jyothi stayed at the orphanage. Life was tough. In winters, she used to shiver because of torn blankets. 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. The empathy that Jyothi shows today to orphans is because of her own bitter experiences of the past. She spends considerable time with the orphans when she visits India.

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......

One day the Taliban ordered him to give it up and leave, but he refused, and was murdered, along with his wife. Rahim Khan reveals that Ali was not really Hassan's father. Hassan was actually the son of Baba, therefore Amir's half-brother. Finally, Rahim Khan tells Amir that the true reason he has called Amir to Pakistan is to go to Kabul to rescue Hassan's son, Sohrab, from an orphanage. Amir returns to Taliban-controlled Kabul with a guide, Farid, and searches for Sohrab at the orphanage.

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......

...stigmas attached to it. The characters are able to develop freely instead of under our own view of them. Although we don’t know the races of the main characters, we do learn the races of the other characters which shape our understanding of the group dynamics at play. Especially at the orphanage at the beginning, “All kinds of kids were in there, black ones, white ones, even two Koreans” (139). Twyla’s observation seems superfluous, but it demonstrates that she recognizes other races. Not as a racist, but as a narrator. This foreshadows how she will observe races as she gets older. The events are not unfolding as she goes; she is recalling them from years past. This forces the reader to place a lot of trust in the narrator. Morrison uses this recollection narration to point out that race relation and memories of that nature are not easily forgotten, but can sometimes be misremembered. For instance, the memory of Maggie, the cook at the orphanage is a constant source of narration crisis. “What was she saying? Black? Maggie wasn't black” (149). Twyla’s memory is challenged many times in the story. This specific memory, being about the race of a woman that had been beaten outside the orphanage, is an example of her changing view of race. Another tool that Morrison uses to create the theme of race and racism is the use of inactive characters. These characters are arguably the most important because of how they shape Twyla’s memory. The most inactive character in the story,......

Kite Runner Paper

...Baba and the narrator live in Kabul. As he grows up, Amir is frustrated with his father's lack of attention. Rahim Khan is Baba's best friend and business partner. Amir mentions a picture of Baba, Rahim, and himself as a baby, his fingers curled around Khan's pinky and not his father's. Baba's servants, Ali and Hassan, live in a little hut near the main house. Ali suffers from paralysis of his lower facial muscles, and polio left him with a twisted right leg. Amir’s mom dies during childbirth- Hassan loses his mom a week after his birth (she leaves her son and husband). Hassan is born a year after Amir, and Baba arranges for the same nurse who fed his son to nurse Hassan. One of the many things that Baba becomes known for is building an orphanage. Amir shares that his relationship with his father is a combination of love and fear, mixed with a little bit of hate. Amir also shares with the reader what little information he has about his mother. One day, Amir and Hassan take a shortcut through the military barracks. A soldier insults Hassan because of his ethnicity. The difference between Shi'a Muslim and Sunni Muslims is explained at this time. The Shi'a Muslims are the Hazaras, the lower class, the servants. Ali and Hassan are Shi'a Muslims. The Pashtuns, the people of Amir and his father, had persecuted and oppressed the Hazaras. Amir comforts Hassan after being insulted by the soldiers, but only when they are not in public.

A Poverty Solution That Starts with a Hug

... and disparities in health,” the pediatrics academy said in its policy statement. One successful example of early intervention is home visitation by childcare experts, like those from the Nurse-Family Partnership. This organization sends nurses to visit poor, vulnerable women who are pregnant for the first time. The nurse warns against smoking and alcohol and drug abuse, and later encourages breast-feeding and good nutrition, while coaxing mothers to cuddle their children and read to them. This program continues until the child is 2. At age 6, studies have found, these children are only one-third as likely to have behavioral or intellectual problems as others who weren’t enrolled. At age 15, the children are less than half as likely to have been arrested. Evidence of the importance of early experiences has been mounting like snowflakes in a blizzard. For example, several studies examined Dutch men and women who had been in utero during a brief famine at the end of World War II. Decades later, those “famine babies” had more trouble concentrating and more heart disease than those born before or after. Other scholars examined children who had been badly neglected in Romanian orphanages. Those who spent more time in the orphanages had shorter telomeres, a change in chromosomes that’s a marker of accelerated aging. Their brain scans also looked different. The science is still accumulating. But a compelling message from biology is that if we want to chip away at poverty and......

The Ultimate Sacrifice

...together. Laila’s decision to send her daughter Aziza to an orphanage (even though it kills her to do so) reinforces the idea that love always comes with sacrifice. When money is tight for Laila and her miserable husband, Rasheed, they have no other choice but to place Aziza in an orphanage because Rasheed can no longer afford to provide for her. Laila cannot bear to tell her daughter the truth, so she explains to her that “she was going to a school, a special school where the children ate and slept and didn’t come home after class”(Hosseini 314). By fabricating the truth, it allows Laila to combat her internal struggle of sending her daughter away. Laila's emphasis on Aziza's well being is presented when she stresses to her daughter that there will be food at the "school" she's going to. Making this choice displays the emotional pain and agony Laila has to endure in order to assure the survival of Aziza, who she loves most. Laila also reassures her daughter by asserting, “I’m your mother. If it kills me, I’ll come and see you” (Hosseini 315). This declaration helps support the idea that Laila will do anything for her daughter. She is willing to suffer and will sacrifice anything of hers if it is in the best interest of Aziza. When Rasheed no longer accompanies her and Mariam to visit Aziza, Laila chooses to go see her anyway, even though she undergoes physical attacks from the Taliban soldiers each time she visits alone. Laila will suffer through nothing short of death to......

...students. That day was a culmination of months of hard work. My schoolmates and I had travelled to several high schools across the country, soliciting signatures, signatures which would ensure that the tradition of student advocacy doesn’t die with our generation. This act of advocacy, through being a council member on the National Secondary Students’ council in Jamaica, was just one of the ways in which I’ve been impressed to effect change. Throughout my high school career and in the process of pursuing my undergraduate degree, I was involved in several service organizations. The need was always present as I lived in a developing country where the unemployment rate borders 40%. In visiting orphanages regularly as well as infirmaries and shelters, there was one predominant fact in all my visits. There was a need for not just social interaction, but efficient representation. I believe, at the core of civilization, must lie that innate desire to help. Sometimes we forget that the essence of humanity lies in us being, humane. As a first semester Biomedical Engineering student I plan to be a catalyst of change by using my skills in the fields of Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering in the field of health sciences. In this field my emphasis will be to improve the quality and efficiency of medical equipment and the quality and affordability of drugs in the pharmaceutical industry.
