  1. In My Veins - story

    My answer was unequivocal. I relished the thought of my future so much that I took to no sleep and stress like a duck to water. Hospital was my home. My sanctuary. Until today. Third breath. The hardest... I think on balance it?s ironic. To be shot in the hospital. By a patient... I?m not ready to die! What will happen to my lovable cat named Cat? It is odd and pathetic that as I lay here dying my biggest cause for concern is a pet...

    Este matrimonio simboliza una divergencia entre la parte racional y la parte emocional de una misma persona como se menciona en el cuento; “Somos a tal punto una misma cosa en ese enredo de ovillo donde la lana blanca y negra luchan como arañas en un bocal”. Al ser estas dos fuerzas de ideales contrarios están en constante pugna. En este caso, la racionalidad termina por dominar al cuerpo y el corazón decide abandonar a la persona.

  8. The extract from Kate Grenvilles The Idea of Perfection is one that focuses on a particular bridge, located over Cascade Rivulet

    A picture of the bridge on the local newspaper probably perked up the main character?s interest of the bridge, as she ?recognised it straight away from its picture in the paper?. The passage is structured in short paragraphs, typically like that of a novel or extended text. Almost every sentence contains some sort of descriptive language such as adjectives or adverbs, which highlights the writer?s attempt to insert all the details possible for this setting to paint readers the picture of perfection that she picks up from the bridge.

A nivel internacional, los países que poseen una herencia cultural, no sólo es un motivo de orgullo y distinción nacional, sino que los pone en una posición competitiva dentro del mundo globalizado, convirtiendo su cultura en un atractivo para inversionistas potenciales. El turismo cultural debe manejarse con mucha cautela y evitar depender de él mismo de manera excesiva ya que puede provocar la pérdida de identidad cultural entre la comunidad, problemas medioambientales y hasta la destrucción del mismo patrimonio.

    Dans le poème, l’auteur explique qu’il voyage de ville en ville dans la souffrance. Il est troublé n’à donc aucun repère. Il espère que le fait de fuir lui ferai oublié. Il site « j’ai pris le train pour fuir mon cruel vieux souci ». Il atterrit donc un soir dans une chambre et décrit l’environnement qui l’entour. L’auteur explique qu’il est en plein mois d’hiver et que les toits, les quais et les ponts sont couverts de neige. Il y a un contraste entre la ténacité et la rigueur de l’hiver dehors et la chaleur et la douceur de sa chambre.

    causas a largo plazo, conocidas también como causas próximas, que nos aclaran mucho más el fenómeno ya que aportan información sobre el contexto en el que se sitúa el estallido bélico. La guerra franco-prusiana de 1871, mantiene una rivalidad constante entre alemanes y franceses, suponiendo un ataque de los últimos. Guerra que culminó con el Tratado de Fráncfort que supuso la pérdida de los territorios de Alsacia y Lorena. Ante esta situación, Bismarck establece alianzas con el propósito de crear ligas diplomáticas que fortalezcan las relaciones entre las potencias capitalistas situadas en posiciones geográficas estratégicas, de modo que se comprometan a defenderse entre sí en caso de que cualquiera de ellas sea atacada por alguna de las naciones rivales.

  15. La importancia del espacio en los cuentos Casa Tomada y Carta a una seorita en Paris escritas por Julio Cortzar

    Debido a esto se genera más confusión en el lector sobre el pasado de los personajes. Por lo tanto, el autor por medio del espacio cerrado suprime los pensamientos y sentimientos para así producir una incógnita. Por otro lado, en el cuento “Carta a una señorita en Paris”, la descripción apela a los sentidos de manera panteísta, reflejando los sentimientos más profundos del personaje. “Esas que en su casa preservan la música de la lavanda, el aletear de un cisne con polvos, el juego de violín, y la viola del cuarteto de Rará” (Cortázar, 2005, pag21).

  16. Arguing in favour of more searches of individuals by the Canadian police.

    This is why it should be modified. We also have reason to believe this because the individual being searched could be concealing various illegal items, such as weapons, drugs, alcohol, or stolen property. Although it is a possibility that someone has a weapon, there should be a proper format to follow for searches. For example, in a school environment we believe there should be a police officer, a teacher and a principle present before any searches take place. Students can sometimes bring illegal items to school creating a threat against other students.

  17. The Effects of the Egyptian revolution on my family and me.

    Although this was all thanks to the position my father secured as minister in that was irrevocably contorted and disorganized, we still had reason to be thankful for the blessing that surrounded us. Many days we spent smiling and laughing rapturously as we gathered round our spacious dinner table; and man days we spent supporting and helping each other with whatever matters we pondered upon. Surely, throughout those flowing trends of time, we never expected a storm to erupt that would completely overturn our lives forever?.

  19. Persuasive Article on the Dangers of Modern Advertisements

    We don?t need any scientific research to realize that it may be connected with a decline in intellectual and moral values among the society. Moreover, the nudity and unambiguous slogans even lower those standards ? it?s a classic vicious circle. We can see half-naked women on billboards in front of schools and churches. Advertisers use colloquial and vulgar words, which are then embraced by children as normal. As a result, what we hear in public are sentences in which half of words used can be classified as obscene.

  21. Is the Spanish Language Sexist?

    A common question to ask yourself would be: is the Spanish language sexist? One point of view is that, depending on the origin of the language one may be more sexist than the other. The other is to say that language is neutral and it is just a way of communicating and that the sexism is put in by the person speaking or listening. When sociologists and philologists have studied the Spanish language they have noticed the clearly sexist and racist traits.

    It sounded like my kind of music, it sounded like my kind of tune, and I felt like a new surge of energy had just been generated in my body, and I shot up awake. However I noticed that this song was scary, evil and very twisted. My girlfriend looked at me and said, ?this music scares me?, and it scared me too, but I also liked it. From the first chorus of the song, I knew Abel was something different. The song in general had the lifting beautiful vocals of any R&B hit, but the sourcing was all wrong.

These two circumstances will be analysed in the first section and follow up with some solutions in order to help teenagers overcome these problems. Finally, this paper will evaluate these solutions and end with a recommendation. The first problem related to IAD is neglecting sleep. The New York Times (2010)

  24. Letter to the editor of GQ magazine complaining about the presentation of women.

    Since it is very important to advocate the right idea of all human being should receive the equal rights, not just because of the wants of men, a woman?s status would have to be put down. I believe if GQ alters its way of presenting an attractive cover GQ will be a much more successful magazine rather than being criticized as a masculine and a gender prejudice magazine. Provided with an example above, the left side magazine cover is published on August, 2011, and the right magazine cover is published on March, 2009.Notice!

  25. Arguing in favour of censorship in China.

    The target audience of this editorial, educated Chinese citizens who support censorship or are not aware of its fundamental shortcomings, will be persuaded that the disadvantages outweigh the advantages. The argument of supporters that censorship is to the benefit of Chinese values will also be challenged in a logical manner. An editorial is the most suitable medium for presenting this controversial topic because both opposing perspectives are explained, the writer?s opinion is shared, and the reader is left to draw their own conclusion.
