The True Meaning of Marriage
The idea of marriage is two people coming together and starting a new life together for the rest of their lives. Is marriage a good thing or is marriage just a “contract” between two people that just use each other for happiness and kids? Marriage is a beautiful ceremony. Marriage is not a “contract.” John McMurtry believes the monogamous marriage that marriage is “essentially a form of ownership over another human being’s sexuality” (Do 246). He thinks that marriage is one person owning another and pretty much controlling how that person acts. Marriage is not an ownership of someone, but true love between two people. Marriage is all about mutual trust, not jealousy or worry. Marriage is supposed to be teamwork.
Marriage is not an ownership of someone, but true love between two people. People now think that when you get married, your life ends because now you are owned by someone. However, that is not the case. Marriage is about true love. One does not own a person in a marriage, but actually love the other person. John McMurtry gives his thoughts on how marriage is a “contract.”
He says, “The partners are required to enter a formal contractual relation….The number of partners involved in the marriage must be two and only two…No person may participate in more than one marriage at a time or during a lifetime…No married person may engage in any sexual relationship with any person whatever other than the other partner” (Do 247-248).
What John is saying is that you cannot have relations with other people because of this “contract.” While this is true is most cases, there are some cases where this does not apply. In some cases, two people love each other more than life itself; however, they have something called an open marriage, and it is okay in their life because no matter what they go back to their husband or wife in the end. There are also marriages where they feel that they can have more than one partner in bed…
This paper is designed to analyze credibility of claims made by television commercials, and News Clips on the Larry King show. This report explains who paid for each segment, which the interested parties were, and to determine the credibility, slant, and the bias of the segment. The report also discusses any skepticality caused by each segment.
Who paid for each example to be createdI believe that Rudy Giuliani and the network that the Larry King show airs on paid for the news clip. I believe this because it seemed to me that it was a promotion of Rudy Giuliani for president, it showed that Mr. Giuliani cared a lot about the Terrorist Attacks of 2001, and that he might run for president in 2008.
Can you detect a slant—that is, a secondary opinion conveyed by the examples’ creatorsI most definitely detect a slant (secondary opinion) by Larry King and Rudy Giuliani. I think that the main purpose of the news clip is to convey that Mr. Giuliani was deeply affected by “9/11” and that he would be a great nominee for president because he had real emotions tied to the event.
What does each example reflect about society at large? Is it credible? Explain your answers.
I am not sure that the news clip reflected anything about society at large. Perhaps it was trying to convey that Americans as a whole are deeply affected by the Terrorist Attacks. I think that it is credible, because so many people were affected by that tragedy.
Are you skeptical of the sources’ credibility? Why or why notI am a bit skeptical of the sources’ credibility because I understand that Larry King is an extreme Republican Conservatist, and therefore he probably tends to promote his ideals more than keeping a strictly informative approach to his show.
Do you detect any bias? Why or why notI do detect a bias, because I noticed that Larry King and Mr. Giuliani were joking about how they are from the same town and I also…

ETH/125, Stephanie SalazarApril 17, 2014Throughout the history of the United States, women have slowly changed their status in society. Women are now realized to put just as many hard hours of work in a day as a man does. For many, many years in history, women were always known as the ones to stay at home and take care of the children while running the household too. It has taken well over a 100 plus years for the first woman to be brought into the House of Representatives. When the 19th Amendment was passed, it finally gave the women the right to vote. In the 1840’s women joined forces to create what is known as feminism. Feminism was created so that women could…

How does race reflects our society
From the earliest of times of civilization, race has been a controversial topic and situation. There have been riots, wars and even genocides over race. The ideal of people looking different have caused tremendous problems in this world and many people have suffered cause of it. Even with progression we made as a society, racism stills looms its ugly head in our society. Race reflects our society in which our social status, economic status and human perspectives are affected.
When it comes to social status in our society minorities are looked down on. Usually there are stereotypes and racist ideologies on minorities. These ideologies included being lazy, unintelligent and inferior. An example would be a Middle Eastern person in America, which most Americans looks at them suspicious and untrustworthy. Americans have this misconception cause of 9/11 and other bombings in the world. They would base these horrible events on one race. It is damaging for person dealing with racism in a society to get ahead, as Cornel West will say “A fully functional multiracial society cannot be achieved without a sense of history and open, honest dialogue” (West 1994). People need look at the history behind 9/11 and see it occurred cause of religion extremism and not on race itself. Racism in our society is one problem that is holding back from moving on as a society.
It’s obviously that economically that race plays a role in how well you succeed. African Americans account for 10.7 percent of the workforce, but only 6.9 percent of executive or managerial positions. Hispanics account for 9.2 percent of the labor force, but only 4.8 percent of executive positions. It is no surprise that minorities have disadvantages seeking a job “At the bottom of education, at the bottom of politics, even at the bottom of religion, there must be for our race economic independence”(Booker T). Despite considerable progress in pursuing racial…
The war in Syria is an armed conflict in Syria between forces loyal to the President and those seeking to oust him. It has stated 3 years ago, the protesters in Dra’aa come up to object to the arrest of some of the children and rip their nails and skin. The police and the army started shooting at the protesters and this led to killing many of them. This fact formed a big shock for millions of Syrians, “How could they kill people like that?” The protests spread to many other cities and all Syrians came out to say: “The president should leave because his army killed many people” but these protests were not useful with him. Later, people started carrying their weapons to protect themselves and it turned to a big war in this nice country. Actually, there are many effects of this war but I will study the biggest three effects: millions of refugees are searching about a safe life, destroyed infrastructure in several cities and heavy casualties.
After the army began bombing civilians and residential areas, millions of people had started searching about a safe life. They are moving from one area to another to do that, and the safe area may be dangerous after some time. For example, 300 thousands persons are living now in Homs of 1.2 million persons that they were before protects. According to the statics, there are more than 4.5 million refugees inside Syria but United Nations helped just 2 million of them and there are about 4 million refugees in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and Iraq. They live in poor conditions and suffer because of the lack of food and other life needs. Their sons usually don’t get education and spend their time in the streets and fighting. Actually, they don’t have any good things but they have a big dream to return to their homes safe.
Increasing military operations and the targeting of cities and residential areas by forces loyal to the President led to the destruction of the infrastructure in several cities. According to Syrian organizations,…

Transformation of Juliet
In William Shakespeareaˆ™s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, one of the main characters Juliet changes as the play progresses. In the beginning of the play, Juliet is a young girl who is very faithful and loyal to her family. After an encounter with Romeo, son of Montague she falls in love and encounters dramatic changes to her life.
In the beginning of the play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet when Juliet is introduced, she is shown to be a young girl who is very faithful to her family, the Capuletaˆ™s. She acts very sincere around her elders such as her mother Lady Capulet, and the nurse who had took care of Juliet as a child. When the nurse calls Juliet in the beginning of the play, Juliet comes at once. Then she politely asks why she was called. (Act 1, Scene 3, ll 5-8) Juliet: aˆ?How now? Who Calls?aˆ?, Nurse: aˆ?Your mother.aˆ?, Juliet: Madam I am here, what is your will.aˆ? Juliet is also very passive and not interested in meeting nor marrying any men. aˆ?It is an honor that I dream not ofaˆ? (Act 1, Scene 3 ll 67).
After an enchanting party in the Capulet home, Juliet discovers Romeo Montague and immediately falls in love with him, even though he is an enemy of the Capuletaˆ™s. She now changes from being passive and having no interest in men to actually loving a man and wanting to start a relationship. She becomes more mature, and learns to love. aˆ?My only love, sprung from my only hate.aˆ? (Act 1, Scene 5, ll 139). Juliet is aware that Romeo is a family enemy but she believes it is too late to end her feelings for Romeo even if he is an enemy. By loving Romeo she has now broken her devotion to her family by actually loving an enemy. Due to Julietaˆ™s love for Romeo she becomes less obedient to her mother and the nurse. Nurse: aˆ?Madamaˆ?, Juliet: aˆ?I come anon. But if thou meanst not well, I do beseech thee—aˆ? Nurse: aˆ?Madam!aˆ? (Act 2, Scene 2, ll 149-152). The nurse calls Juliet over and over until she finally came,…
I’m not a very good speaker. I say “um” a lot. Sometimes I have to pause when I lose my train of thought. I wish I were a better speaker. But I don’t wish I were a better speaker like I wish I were a better writer. What I really want is to have good ideas, and that’s a much bigger part of being a good writer than being a good speaker.Having good ideas is most of writing well. If you know what you’re talking about, you can say it in the plainest words and you’ll be perceived as having a good style. With speaking it’s the opposite: having good ideas is an alarmingly small component of being a good speaker.I first noticed this at a conference several years ago. There was another speaker who was much better than me. He had all of us roaring with laughter. I seemed awkward and halting by comparison. Afterward I put my talk online like I usually do. As I was doing it I tried to imagine what a transcript of the other guy’s talk would be like, and it was only then I realized he hadn’t said very much.Maybe this would have been obvious to someone who knew more about speaking, but it was a revelation to me how much less ideas mattered in speaking than writing. A few years later I heard a talk by someone who was not merely a better speaker than me, but a famous speaker. Boy was he good. So I decided I’d pay close attention to what he said, to learn how he did it. After about ten sentences I found myself thinking “I don’t want to be a good speaker.”Being a really good speaker is not merely orthogonal to having good ideas, but in many ways pushes you in the opposite direction. For example, when I give a talk I usually write it out beforehand. I know that’s a mistake; I know delivering a prewritten talk makes it harder to engage with an audience. The way to get the attention of an audience is to give them your full attention, and when you’re delivering a prewritten talk your attention is always divided between the audience and the talk—even if you’ve…
Type : Persuasive Essay
topic: If parents speak a language other than English, should they have their child speak both languages while growing up, or only EnglishTwo or More Languages in Early Childhood: Some General Points and Practical Recommendations
Annick De Houwer, University of Antwerp and Science Foundation of Flanders, Belgium
In an increasingly diversified and multilingual world, more and more young children find themselves in an environment where more than one language is used. Similarly, with job changes that involve moving to different parts of the world, parents can feel overwhelmed by the linguistic demands on them and their children. What can parents expect of their children? Do parents have anything to contribute to the process of early language development? Does it confuse children to learn two or more languages at once? Do children have to be especially intelligent to be able to cope with more than one languagePeople everywhere have strong ideas about children growing up with a second or third language. These ideas influence how people interact with their children and how they look at other people’s children. These ideas also influence how professionals such as teachers, doctors, and speech therapists advise parents of children growing up bilingually. Sadly, many ideas that people have about children growing up with a second or third language in childhood are not of any benefit to these children and may in fact have adverse effects. One of the purposes of this digest is to dispel some common myths about children growing up bilingually and to offer suggestions that can help children to become fluent users of two or more languages.
A bilingual environment is most often a necessity, not a choice
Many discussions of the advantages or disadvantages of early bilingualism seem to be based on the idea that a bilingual environment is something that parents choose for their children. This, however, is usually not the case; young children…
The Bluest Eye (19, 20)
Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye is a novel set in Lorain, Ohio, shortly after the end of the Great Depression. Perhaps the most prevalent theme in The Bluest Eye is that of whiteness as the all-encompassing standard of beauty. Morrison used childhood experiences of several young black girls to show just how idealized whiteness was in American society.
As Claudia explained, Pecola loved to drink milk out of a cup that had Shirley Temple’s face printed on it. In fact, “Frieda and she had a loving conversation about how cu-ute Shirley Temple was” (19). The audience knew Pecola to be painfully self-conscious about her black skin, which she viewed as a mark of ugliness. Pecola clearly subscribed to the idea that whiteness meant goodness, so it came as no surprise that she believe Shirley Temple was “so cu-ute” and that she cherished a cup with her image. Morrison intentionally capitalized on that point by specifying that the Pecola liked to drink milk from the cup. The reader is made to believe that Pecola embraced the white face and white milk because they made her feel less stereotypically black.
Narrator Claudia MacTeer’s drastically different attitude towards whiteness was conveyed as well. Very early in the novel, Claudia explained that she was physically revolted by Raggedy Anne dolls. She claimed that “Adults, older girls, shops, magazines, newspapers, window signs– all the world had agreed that a blue-eyed, yellow-haired, pink-skinned doll was what every girl child treasured” (20). What disgusted Claudia so much was the in which the dolls so clearly promoted the glorification of caucasian attributes. In fact, when Claudia received a similar doll as a Christmas gift, she ripped it apart in a fruitless search for the ‘beauty’ of the doll that was perceived by all but her. When Mrs. MacTeer discovered the remnants of the doll, she scolded he daughter for her actions. Mrs. MacTeer’s anger over the destruction of a white doll made…
