It is almost certain that in writing “Miss Annie” and “The Gaulin Wife” Patricia Glinton was warning Bahamian men to not take women for granted. The depiction of women on the two folk tales include humble, competitive, lonely, inquisitive, and fierce. Various of our Bahamian women have these traits. Hence, the stories are indeed a reflection on Bahamian women. “This loving husband made the garden for his wife Annie, who loved the beauties of nature, perhaps, because she was one of them. The writer uses a metaphor comparing Annie to the “beauties of nature” This is to describe how beautiful Miss Annie was. Imagery is also shown because comparing Annie to the beauty of nature gives the reader a sense of sight imaging you can see Annie being compared to the beauty of nature. This also ties the theme of “Man vs Nature”. “Annie was obligated to draw countless buckets of water from the well in the yard to keep a breast of her husband’s demands” The writer then brings out the theme suffering. This shows how Annie was forced to do such things to keep her husband happy, the writer shows that she had to do it because the word “obligated” was used meaning she was committed to doing what her husband says to do. The writer also shows not only how physically strong Annie was but also how emotionally strong she was to put up with her husbands’ demands, and also how only her one being a female and not having as much strength of a man to draw ‘countless buckets’ of water each day. “He got up from the table and rushed into the kitchen to find his wife, who usually ate her meals there to escape her husbands’ evil temper” This shows how wise Miss Annie was she knows that her husband has an evil temper so she tries to distance herself away from him. The writer also uses setting to show this because Annie would go in eat in the kitchen to escape her husbands’ temper. Which was…...

The Attraction of Woods on a Snowy Evening

...The Attraction of Woods on a Snowy Evening In Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, we follow what appears to be the traveler’s short journey through a beautiful snowy landscape. Words such as peaceful and serene come to mind. During the first few lines of this poem it seems as if this traveler has found an idyllic setting. However, upon closer examination, we have to ask the question of why this traveler has picked “the darkest evening of the year…to stop without a farmhouse near.” Does this traveler have other things on his mind beyond admiring the scenery? Let’s step into the setting of this poem and see what intentions this weary traveler had. Beginning with the title, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” the reader already knows that the traveler is stopping to admire the falling snow in this wintery land. Sounds pleasing enough, yet the very first line alerts the reader to the fact that the traveler is somewhat cognizant as to who’s woods he is journeying through. He goes onto mention that the owner of the woods won’t know he is there since the owner lives in the village. This seems to give some indication that maybe there is more going on in this traveler’s mind. Almost a hint that he is either trespassing on this land or maybe he just doesn’t want anyone to know what he is up to. The fourth line of this poem, “To watch his woods fill up with snow”, seems to be a turning point where the reader is taken from this idyllic setting to......

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

...From the outline of the poem ‘Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening’, it begins with the speaker stopping by a small forest in the evening of deep winter. He savours the lovely view of the forest as he stops with his horse. The silence and tranquility of the wintry landscape captivate the speaker. Although he wishes to stay longer, yet realizing that he has ‘promises to keep’ and some distance to go, so he must move on. The poem comprises four stanzas and each stanza has four lines. The first three stanzas have a-a-b-a rhyming scheme. For example, in the first stanza, the first, second and fourth lines are in rhyme such as ‘know’, ‘though’ and ‘snow’. The exception is the final stanza where all the end of lines rhyme, such as ‘deep’, ‘keep’, ‘sleep’, ‘sleep’ because the last two lines are identical. If we carefully examine its pattern, the third line in each stanza always rhymes with the first line of the next stanza. Hence, this poem is written and arranged systematically by Frost. At first, the speaker is captivated by the scenery he takes in, particularly the woods covered with snow. While he stops, he is wondering whom this woods belong to. From the answering ‘I think I know’, it suggests that the woods is nothing new to him. Then, the speaker affirms that the landowner will not see him stopping there. By talking to himself, this indicates that the speaker is at remote distance from society and he is all alone with his horse. A sense of aloneness fills the mood of......

...Sociology Coursework 2 In the contemporary world, one of the most important concept of sociology of work is alienation. “The sense that our own abilities, as human beings, are taken over by other entities”(Anthony Giddens ,1989:224). The more people transform the world themselves, the more the world becomes strange for them and the more people experience themselves as aliens in that contemporary world. The world faced a rapid technological process. On the contrary, people experience of uneasiness about our technological being in the world. Some sociologists maintain that work technology has an important impact on the level of job satisfaction or dissatisfaction of industrial workers in their workplace behaviour. Many people become alienated by doing their repetitive as well as boring job. An oversimplifying example of alienation is when worker attaches tires onto a car in a auto manufacturing plant. This essay will examine Karl Marx's contribution on alienation as well as contribution of Robert Blauner. Initially, Karl Marx claimed that alienation exists whenever and wherever there is Capitalism(Kennett, 2004). Marx maintains that alienation is interior part of the capitalist labour process, and that is why he considers that alienation is an objective state where all workers find themselves(Noon, 2007). He argues that there are four manifestations of alienation under industrial capitalism. The first manifestation is “product alienation”, it occurs when workers see......

As I Walked Out One Evening

...be in transition. The lovers have left, the clocks have ceased their chiming, but the river inexorably runs on: a clear indication that time continues to pass despite the absence of time personified. The poem as a whole could quite easily be remembered through these two lines, something which makes the conclusion of this poem rather similar to that of a sonnet. All of these aspects are rather vague and open for discussion, but that is one of the many things which make the interpretation of poetry such a diverse subject. As stated in the opening paragraph, the boundaries between the various genres of poetry are quite loose, and poets often use elements of several categories when creating their poem. In my opinion, “As I Walked Out One Evening” is a literary ballad, with elements of the dramatic (namely dialogue), and a clear influence of the sonnets dualistic division of content and concluding couplet. Auden has utilized portions of each genre when sculpting his poem, narrative, dramatic and lyric, proving that each form play an essential role in the creation of a work of poetry, regardless of the genre it might be classified as on completion....

Ode to Evening - William Collins

...Ode to Evening - William Collins Introduction: “Ode to Evening,” is one among the most enduring poems of William Collins. It is a beautiful poem of fifty-two lines, addressed to a goddess figure representing evening. This nymph, or maid, who personifies dusk, is chaste, reserv’d, and meek, in contrast to the bright-hair’d sun, a male figure who withdraws into his tent, making way for night. Thus evening is presented as the transition between light and darkness. Collins’ Construction of Evening: Collins slowly constructs Evening as an allegorical figure with many attributes, and many aural and visual characteristics. Collins piles up epithets; Eve is “chaste,” “reserved,” “composed,” “calm,” “meekest”; her ear is “modest.” The figure of Eve so far is only yet a sketch, but her attributes add up to the idea of an attractive, calm woman who is not restless or forcefully active. Contrast of Evening with the Daytime: According to the poet, Evening possesses “solemn springs” and “dying gales” Daytime activity gives way to calm as the wind literally often dies down in the evening. Some activity now supplements our picture of Eve. The gentle movements of water and the air ensure that her figure is not static. Eve’s contrast with the daytime world is even more obvious when Collins compares her to the setting sun. The glaring “bright-haired sun” sits regally in his tent of clouds, the “skirts” or edges of which seem to be made of many-colored braided cloth.......

In a competitive situation, the consistency of hand heights is important as it is an important factor in determining whether a boat will be sat or not. The most important factor in having a balanced boat through the recovery phase is to have consistent hand heights through the boat. Especially in a competitive situation where the rate per minute is typically high. Mahe Drysdale is a very experienced sculler from New Zealand, who is a current olympic champion with 5 word champion titles in a single scull. Despite Mahe’s age of 34 at that time, he is still a world champion not just because of his experience and amount of training, but also due to the fact that he is very consistent on the water. His consistent blade heights allows him for an early catch, which allows him to take full advantage of a stroke. In the 2012 olympics, Mahe finished first with a close 3/4 length lead to 30 year old Czech Republic single sculler Ondřej Synek. ! ! ! Preparation! To prepare going up the slide, the performer should be sat at the finish with both legs extended, body slightly leaning back. Both oars should be drawn into the chest feathered. ! ! ! Execution!

My Evening with Linda Sims

...My Evening with Linda Celeste Sims Last February, my mom took me to an Ailey 1st production at The Kennedy Center in D.C. and I sat on the edge of my seat during the entire performance. My eyes were fixed mainly on dancer Linda Celeste Sims. Her movements across the floor were so graceful that she looked like an angel. I was inspired by her elegant walk and before the evening was over, I was determined to meet her. I really did not know how that was possible but I knew for certain that my mom would make it happen. Fast forward to two weeks later and my amazing mom gave me the news! Mrs. Sims is coming to our house! The director of my dance school had arranged the date for us and I was beyond excited. Linda Celeste Sims was born in 1977 in Haiti. She grew up in Bronx, N.Y. after she was adopted by an American family. She is one of the primary dancers with The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in N.Y. She is one of the most loved and admired dancers in the company which she joined in 1996 at the age of nineteen. In that same year, Mrs. Sims was honored with an award from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts and in 2009 she was highlighted in Dance Magazine as one of the “Best of 2009”. As a little girl, Linda Sims had aspired to become a professional dancer. Her goal was to be part of a renowned dance company. She excelled in school while taking dance classes five days a week. Her parents taught her that hard work is necessary to achieve......

Saturday Evening Newscasts

...Saturday Evening Newscasts: ABC World News Tonight VS. Fox News Fox Report Saturday Jennifer Wallace Chamberlain College of Nursing PHIL 447 Professor Stephens Week 3 03/20/2016 The two news casts that I chose to watch and write about were aired on Saturday, March 19. The first program I watched was ABC World News Tonight. It came on at 7:00pm and it was hosted by Cecilia Vega, who I was unfamiliar with. When this show was over, I turned my television to Fox News and I watched The Fox Report, which started at 8:00pm. This show was hosted by Julie Banderas. I was unfamiliar with her, as well. Both of these hosts were attractive women, which seems to be the standard for women on the news, whether it’s local or national. I don’t normally watch either of these particular shows, so I was unsure what to expect as far as their actual reporting was concerned. On the ABC news cast, the first story that was covered was about Donald Trump, the rally that he held in Arizona, and the protests in Arizona and New York City. The host claimed that “despite the protests, Trump was louder and more forceful than ever”, which in my opinion, had a very negative slant to it. The report showed how the protestors in Arizona used their cars to try and block traffic and how the protestors in NYC were marching and picketing in front of Trump Tower. At the end of the story, the reporter talked about Donald Trumps’ “feud” with Megyn Kelly, whom he called “highly over rated and crazy”. An......

Pendulum Coursework

...Pendulum coursework The year 10 extended group is investigating a pendulum; each one of us is going to change something to it, to make the investigation more interesting. The things that we could change are: * The length of the string (20,40,60,80,100,120,140,160,180,200; in cm) * The weight of the plasticine (55 grams) * Shape of the object, aerodinamicity (ball, sphere) * The angle of where you started to throw the plasticine, (45º) The things that we could measure or observe are: * Amounts of laps in a given time (10 laps) * In how much time it stops * Its speed/ acceleration * Time to do certain amount of laps I decided that I will change (independent) the length of the string of the pendulum (measurements: 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200; in cm) and I will measure/observe (dependent) time to do certain amount of laps. (10 laps.) My question is: How much time it takes to do 10 laps? What I will keep the same is: * The weight of the plasticine (55g) * The shape of the object (sphere) * The angle of where I started to throw the plasticine (45º) My prediction is: When I change the length of the string of the pendulum I think what will happen to the laps of the pendulum is that as longer the string the less laps will the pendulum do. This is because the pendulum will take more time to return to its initial point, for the reason that it is a longer distance to travel so it will take longer. Method 1. Make......
