Mule Killers Lydia Peele's "Mule Killers" is an achingly sad story of loss and acceptance. Actually it's a strange little story told by a narrator, telling the story of his father courting his mother. The storyline runs astride with the tractors essentially putting mules out of work and, so, to death. The text "Mule Killers" is an epic short story. It actually has a multiple point of view, it changes between a first and a third person narrative. This is because the actual first person narrator tells a story in the story. Mostly it is a first person narrative, but in some sentences the story of the father "takes over" and it becomes a third person narrative. The narrator is omniscient and he is used as a messenger. His purpose is to tell his father's sad story to the readers. Comments from the narrator appears a few places, for example "It doesn't matter; I can imagine it", which just makes us remember that it is the narrator telling about his father and grandfather, and not an unknown narrator. This makes the relations between the narrator and the readers more intimate and makes the narrator reliable. There is a chronological order throughout the story. Direct speech is used a couple of times, but does not dominate the story. Again it is simply the narrator telling his father's moving story. Despite the narrators comments, he is quite objective in his storytelling, it
20th Century Genius Award
20th Century Genius Award HUM 102 Intro to Humanities: Renaissance to Present A nominee for the 20th Century Genius Award should be Riley B. King. King has had an integral part in the history of the blues style of music since the mid 1950s. The manner in which he plays his guitar, Lucille, and his voice are very distinguishable. His style of instrumentation has carried over to other genres of music as well. He is hail as the reigning king of the blues. Most blues guitar solos will have some of the recognizable King inspired bent notes. Riley B. King, better known as B. B. King, was born September 16, 1925 to a family of poor sharecroppers in Mississippi. King's artistic contribution to the 20th century is music, most notably the Blues. In the blues arena, he is probably one of the greatest and most respected guitarists in the history of the genre. When one hears the name B. B. King, the music of the blues immediately comes to mind. His musical motivation came from the music in his church. At first, Riley wanted to become a gospel singer. The pastor in his church taught him the basics of guitar. He then became a self taught guitarist by using instruction books he ordered through the mail. Since his arrival on the scene in the mid 1940s, King has been the definition of blues for the world wide audience. In his youth, he would play his guitar on street corners for dimes.
Travel options to Paris and Manhattan
-1- Elliott Pateman A03 In this task I will analyse the choice of methods to travel to around two destinations. The destinations I have chosen are Disneyland Paris and Manhattan, New York. To do this I will have to carry out both primary and secondary research. Primary research involves getting original data directly about the product and market. Primary research data is data that did not exist before. It is designed to answer specific questions of interest to the customer - for example: What do customers think of an alternative to a popular travel route? To collect primary data I must carry out field research. The main methods of field research are: Face-to-face interviews - interviewers ask people on the street or on their doorstep a series of questions. Telephone interviews - similar questions to face-to-face interviews, although often shorter. Online surveys - using email or the Internet. This is an increasingly popular way of obtaining primary data and much less costly than face-to-face or telephone interviews. Questionnaires - sent in the post (for example a customer feedback form sent to people who have recently bought a product or service). Focus groups and consumer panels - a small group of people meet together with a "facilitator" who asks the panel to examine a product and then asked in -2- depth questions. This method is often used when a business
how desirable is censorship?
How desirable is censorship? Most people think that censoring materials is going against people's right to information and press but in some cases censorship is unavoidable. Censorship is the suppression or deletion of material which may be considered objectionable, harmful or sensitive, as determined by a censor. But it is an arguable topic on who gets to censor materials and the criteria for a material not to be censored. Mainly censorship is done on three bases: materials regarding national security, liable materials which can damage an individual's or a firm's dignity and reputation and finally material that is obscene materials such as pornography. When it comes down to the security of a nation from attacks by terrorist and other countries, it is obvious that the material which put it in jeopardy is bound to be censored. Materials like maps of secret location like the Whitehouse and other government areas of most of the countries are censored on Google earth and out of reach of the local population because it provides an easy access for the terrorists as they will be able to view those places and plan their attacks. Other official papers also like of those of research done by a country and military tactics is censored because the linkage of the information may turn out to be a huge problem for a country. So these types of censoring are justified and are reasonable. But
Maslow and Social Services
This essay will describe Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. It will explore how these different needs are met by Social Services whilst clarifying the distinction between 'wants' and 'needs'. In doing so, it will define 'social services' in its widest sense, including facilities available from the voluntary sector and, on a more informal basis, from family and friends. The Hierarchy of Needs model was developed by Abraham Maslow, an American psychologist. Maslow (1943) publicly set out his ideology for the first time within an article written for the Psychological Review journal. The basis of Maslow's theory was that individuals, as human beings, are motivated by unsatisfied needs. He stated that people can only strive toward self-actualisation once their more basal needs are fulfilled. Maslow's model (shown below) groups human needs into five different levels, forming a pyramid of progression, with the most basic needs at the bottom. Self-Actualization Esteem Needs Social Needs Safety Needs Physiological Needs Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (Abraham Maslow - Father of Modern Management, 2007) As illustrated above, the first level is concerned with physiological needs. These are the resources required for basic survival, including air, water, food and sleep. Once physiological needs are met, Maslow's model indicates that focus turns to safety and security. These needs
Explain what is meant by Conformity and Obedience

Subjectivity and Objectivity
What is Subjectivity? Theoretically, all people in this world are subjects, it is impossible for a person to be an object; however it is possible for one to decrease his or her subjectivity in addressing important and serious topics through objectivity. In short, a person's subjectivity is mostly influenced by his or her sentiments and attitudes; on the contrary, being objective means looking at the facts cold heartedly and using pure logic. Unfortunately, the great majority of the population is more prone to giving in to their emotions and mind-sets when discussing or arguing issues that are under question and are valued by them. As a consequence, an orderly argument, which could yield a reasonable and sound solution, is mostly unattainable. After careful deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that I myself am a very subjective person. Just like for everybody else, my attitudes, beliefs, and prejudices make up my subjectivity and my way of thinking. Keeping that in mind, my gender, my nationality, my social class, and my religion all affect the values that I have and thus my subjectivity. As a lower middle class Armenian woman I have the kind of values, which I think ought to be shared by everybody else. The first and utmost important thing in my life is my family and their well being. Although, sometimes taken for granted, everybody must love and respect their
