David Sedaris Otherness - 1,170 words
One may view David Sedaris, without the knowledge of his background, as abnormal or even weird. However, throughout the two stories, A Plague of Tics, and Ashes, he breaks down the wall of otherness and allows an audience to take a look at his own personal life. Sedaris incorporates all sorts of humor to somewhat ease the tension of revealing his life and the awkwardness the audience may feel while reading his stories. The autobiographical point of view allows the audience to get a real sense of self-representation and truth, although at times the stories Sedaris share seem peculiar to the outsiders. Using an artistic and humorous tactic, David Sedaris is able to deconstruct his own othernes ...

She was barely keeping up with him with her arms full of groceries. Thinking to myself that this is going to be an interesting adventure, I grabbed my cart and started to shop. Choosing firs ...

What Are Mutual Funds - 1,557 words
What is a Mutual Fund and How Does It Work? Think of a mutual fund as an investment company that pools the money of people just like you for one common reason -- to make more. Not all pots of money, though, are alike. Each mutual fund has its own strategy and investment objective for making money.

The Tomorrowtamer - 591 words
The three major issues of the African people Throughout my reading of the Tomorrow-Tamer I have noticed three main problems faced by the African people: Poverty, the lack of education and finally the social isolation. These are the subjects on which I propose my text. At the time this book was written, most of Africa was controlled by white men, usually businessmen seeking profits. Advantaged by the low wages given to the workers, this accentuated general poverty within African countries. This is why many characters were either poor or born in poor families, for example, Godman Pira in the Godsmans Master or Ayesha in the Rain Child short story. One thing conspicuous when traveling in cert ...

Greasy Lake Initiation - 545 words
Greasy Lake by T.C. Boyle is an initiation story about three boys in search of something they have yet to find(398). What they are trying to find is their identity. Like most teenagers, these boys are rebellious and involve themselves in socially deviant behavior, because they are not yet mature enough to comprehend the potentially devastating ramifications of their actions. Sometimes the only way one learns his limits is by stretching their boundaries. T.C. Boyle makes this the center focus of Greasy Lake, and his judicious use of symbols show us how easily one can lose his veneer of innocence by the wrong decision they make. One of these symbols is the admiration the narrator and his two f ...

Wonders Of Henna - 1,132 words
What is that on your hands? Didnt you wash them? In elementary school, those were common questions that I was asked by my peers in response to the reddish-brown designs on my hands.

Clasical Conditioning - 363 words
We can see learning taking place all the time, but there is no simple explanation of the process. Psychologists have examined four types of learning; one of these is classical conditioning or response learning. Classical conditioning is the easiest kind of learning. Classical conditioning is based on experiments that took place in the 1900s by the Russian physiologist Ivan P. Pavlov. He trained dogs to salivate at signals such as lights, tones, or buzzers by using the signals when he gave food to the dog. Pavlov called the learned response a conditional response because it depended on the conditions of the stimulus. This learning process is based on stimulus response relationships. A stimulu ...
