The relationship between Unoka and Okonkwo, In "Things Fall Apart", many father and son relationships exist. The most notable one is the Okonkwo has with his father Unoku. Their relationship is a very strained in which Okonkwo grows up hating his father and consciously adopts opposite ideals. Unoku is often viewed as a poor, lazy man who never planned for the future. He is always in debt and as a result he left his son with nothing to live on when he dies. Two ways that shows Okonkwo's hate towards his father is the way he constantly beats his own son Nwoye. Another way is how Onkonkwo never wants to show any weakness and consciously adopts opposite ideals of his father. The constant beating of Nuroye by Onkokwo done on purpose by him in order to prevent Nwoye becoming like Unoka. Onkonkwo worries about his son following in the footsteps of his grandfather that he even refers to him as being "old enough to impregnate a woman". Okonkwo views his son as a symbol of laziness just like Unoka, and so he does his best to prevent this. The fact that Nuroye has feminine like characteristics angers his father. This includes Nwoye crying a lot when Ikmefuma is taken away and that he prefers listening to his mother's children stories rather than his father's war stories. Nuroye struggles in the shadow of his powerful, successful, and demanding father that as a result

At tonight's seminar we had the chance to meet Ed and Anthony who are attorneys. Anthony really helped me discover that the medical field is a career choice where mistakes can be made very easily and every little action taken is important. Even though he isn't a doctor, he taught me that to work in this field takes a lot of patience and tolerance, just by witnessing cases everyday. He taught me that it is not only a difficult job for medical workers, but for lawyers as well. It is hard for the medical workers because they can make mistakes very easily or be accused for things that never happened which can lead to lots of trouble very fast. Also, it is hard for the lawyers because it is their job to prove to the jury and judge that the medical worker is innocent, and figure out how to show evidence to make his point. I learned that people sue workers for the most ridiculous things, but it is our duty to do our best and defend ourselves and be as safe as we can to not make any mistakes as we work. I learned that the medical records and documentation are a very important aspect of any medical career. Documentation is not only for legal and financial purposes, but to help give patients the best care because they are not necessarily going to be given the same doctor throughout their entire stay. I learned that a good worker takes descriptive, accurate, organized, complete and
Debra Wei Block B 21st September 2006. 'Of Mice and Men Film Study Analysis' Main Actors: Gary Sinise - George Milton John Malkcovich - Lennie Small Director: Gary Sinise Behind every admirable movie lies the diminutive details that really outstand the excellence of it. These details comprise a wide variety, such as structure, sound, camerawork, movements, etc. Though we might not perceive all these when we observe movies, our brain does absorb it and then furthermore combines it to create the grand effect in which we do recognize. For the first scene of 'Of Mice and Men', we studied it and broke it down to pieces. We realized that the structure of the scene was that it consisted of three sequences. The initial sequence took place in a train beginning with a melody of slow tempo, complementing the dragging and depressing sound it comprised. The camerawork focused the viewer on the opening credits, as it allowed a flare of light to creep in behind cracks every time a credit was displayed, drawing the audience's eyes to it. They were also contrasting colors, as the credits were in white and the background was deep in black and blue. The camera lens also zoomed in to a close up shot of George Milton's eyes, informing the audience that it would be his eyes we see the movie through, as well as he was deep in thought. The start of the following sequence was determined
Tornado: Case Study of the 1925 Tri State Tornado The deadliest tornado in United States history and the fastest F5 tornado ever classified by the Fujita system struck on March 18, 1925. Originating in the central portion of the country, the state of Missouri, and the tornado quickly moved northwest in Illinois and then into southwestern Indiana, thus providing the name "Tri-State." The tornado was actually spawned from a larger tornado outbreak, which produced several deadly tornados in Tennessee, Indian and Northwestern Kentucky. One of the more interesting natural facets of this particular tornado was the tremendously powerful downburst winds that were generated throughout the full extent of the tornado's path. This burst coupled with the actual tornado winds amplified the damage zone from .75 square mile to 3 square miles at a time. Consequences This tornado alone killed a confirmed 695 individuals, twice as many as the second deadliest tornado in the nation's history. The storm destroyed over 15,000 houses and caused almost 16.5 million US Dollars at the time in damages, which amounts to the staggering figure of 1.4 billion US Dollars when adjusted now for inflation. At the time, the most surprising and awing characteristic of this tornado was how even deft and hardy farmers who had weather many other tornados were damaged by this natural phenomena. Citizen

In this essay, I will explore how voters use credibility, an elites opinion, and others opinions from soft news to establish confirmation of their own opinion.
With the advancement of today's technology, the rise of soft news is more watched than hard news. It is also known as an "infotainment" because it involves people's different interests along with the news. With the creation of cable, people have access to different channels that relates to their personal interest creating stereotypes. In this essay, I will explore how voters use credibility, an elite's opinion, and others' opinions from soft news to establish confirmation of their own opinion. People watch more television than anything else; their free time became their television time. Voters lack information or data therefore information shortcuts is a way for them to assess candidates, evaluate information in media, and run tallies on political parties. There are three types of shortcuts: evaluating, obtaining, and storing. Evaluating is when a person turns to other people's opinions because they are uncertain. People use late night talk shows or entertainment oriented shows to get their information. Many tend to turn to elite opinion leaders on talk shows such as The Tonight Show, The Colbert Show, The View, etc. People trust these entertainment figures and usually confirm their own opinions after hearing theirs hence making the elite opinion leaders with a lot of power. Media provides information in which people obtain and that information is validated after it is
SHOULD SMOKING BE BANNED? Recently, many countries have taken measures to ban indoor smoking mainly because scientific evidence has shown that tobacco smoking is harmful to the smokers themselves and to those inhaling second-hand smoke. Banning smoking in public buildings, hotels, bars, restaurants, shops etc. intends to protect people from the effects of second hand smoke, which include an increased risk of heart disease, cancer or other diseases. In addition, these measures will decrease health costs, since less people will suffer every year from the above illnesses and therefore less people will be treated in hospitals. Smoking bans could save thousands of lives. Additional reasons for these measures include reduced risk of fire in public areas, and more clean places where food, pharmaceuticals or other similar products are produced. Banning smoking will result in healthier environments and better air quality. Smoking will be only allowed in the open spaces outside buildings, shops, restaurants etc. or specific areas inside places such as airports or offices and smokers will have to go outside or in the specific areas to smoke. It is believed that smoking bans will make it more difficult for smokers to enjoy smoking and, what is more important, they will give smokers an incentive to quit. However, not everybody agrees with banning of smoking. On the contrary almost
"Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture Love Theme" by Peter Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture Love Theme by Peter Tchaikovsky retells the story of R&J in an instrumental and overture way. Tchaikovsky correctly and accurately interprets the play of Romeo and Juliet with an orchestra. His orchestra uses different types of instruments, volume, tempo and sounds to express and emphasize the story of Romeo and Juliet in a dramatic and harmonic way. Tchaikovsky begins the overture with the slow violin and gradually builds up the emotions and actions of R&J. He clusters instrument sounds to implement the intensity of the first scene of the play. The beginning of the play starts off with Gregory and Sampson provoking Abraham and Benvolio into a fight. Then, the overture and play continues with the quick beat pace of instruments resembling the start of the first Montague and Capulet brawl. The middle of the overture becomes alive when there are changing combinations of loud and quiet tempos. It amplifies the excitement and tragedy during the middle part of the play and overture. In addition, the constant alternating combinations of different tempos illustrate how problems begin to worsen more and more. During the play, the climax begins and many problems unravel dealing with Romeo and Juliet. Romeo gets banished along with Juliet having to marry Paris. Both of the lovers

Mike Kang Ms. Jader ITGS HL Disposal of Computers The production and disposal of computers, coupled with their short life span is having a potentially disastrous effect on the environment according to a report by the UN. Therefore, instead of just disposing the computers, people should consider re-using and recycling the parts, such as re-using the RAM, and recycling the useless parts through organizations that take old computers and replace the damaged, or unusable parts with the ones that work, and completely erase the data from the hard drive, before finding a new owner. If it is hard to contact a recycling organization, it is necessary to find to find a waste disposal contractor who can dispose the machine for you for a set cost. Fortunately, the disposal process would become much easier in the future due to the initiation of the 'Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment knows as "WEEE". This policy will make the manufacturers of the computer parts responsible for the deposal of it, hopefully reducing the amount of harmful waste. Summary of ways to dispose computers effectively: . Sell it 2. Find an alternative way to use the computer 3. Reuse usable parts 4. Contact the disposal contractor 5. WEEE 6. Donate it to less fortunate and less privileged people 7. The computers' / computer parts can be manufactured eco-friendly, known as the "green computers".
