The stereotypical gender roles are that men are the strongest, the dominant character in a story or scenario, and females are the ones who are done what they are told, Women are expected to be the ones who are afraid, perhaps also as a more weaker sex, if the story didn’t tell us who was the man and the woman, we would automatic set the gender roles so the most dominant would be the man, this story could have been written so the genders was switched around at first and then switched again later on so at first the killer was the man but then when the story was finished the writer made some changes so the killer was the girl.

What Are You Thoughts on the Question Are Hate Crimes Considered Thought Crimes?

...What are you thoughts on the question are hate crimes considered thought crimes? According to WIKIPEDIA, “A thought crime is an occurrence or instance of controversial or socially unacceptable thoughts. The term is also used to describe some theological concepts such as disbelief or idolatry or a rejection of strong social or philosophical principles.” Also according to WIKIPDIA, “In both crime and law, hate crimes (also known as bias-motivated crimes, or race hate) occur when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group. Examples of such groups include but are not limited to: racial group, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or gender identity. Hate crime is a category used to describe bias-motivated violence: "assault, injury, and murder on the basis of certain personal characteristics: different appearance, different color, different nationality, different language, and different religion." "Hate crime" generally refers to criminal acts that are seen to have been motivated by bias against one or more of the types above, or of their derivatives. Incidents may involve physical assault, damage to property, bullying, harassment, verbal abuse or insults, or offensive graffiti or letters (hate mail). A hate crime law is a law intended to prevent bias-motivated violence. Hate crime laws are distinct from laws against hate speech in that hate crime laws enhance the penalties associated with conduct that is already......

10 Things I Hate About You and the Pursuit of Happiness

...10 Things I Hate About You and the Pursuit of Happiness 10 Things I Hate About You is a Shakespearian parody that is based on his literary work, Taming the Shrew, but also pays homage to his other works as well. This film is a loose adaptation that uses modern day teenage problems and settings as well as modern day language in place of Shakespeare’s old world customs and a language that has long since been put to rest. While this film has many archetypical characters, concepts, themes and symbols, one thing sticks out the most and that is the concept of the pursuit of happiness. No matter what day in age we are in this is a concept that we as humans are always trying to obtain. The induction of this film surrounds around the character Cameron (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a new-comer that is being shown around by school by his new friend Michael, as he burns, pines and perishes over the sweet, sexy and much adored innocence that is Bianca Stratford (Larissa Oleynik). It is here that you learn that she is untouchable as her tyrannical father will not let her date. At this time, you are also introduced to a few key characters such as Joey Donner (Andrew Keegan), the egocentric king of the popular crowd and Katarina “Kat” Stratford (Julia Stiles), the polar opposite of her younger sister and plays an ill-tempered harridan with cutting wit that is hell bent to not be tempted by the idiocies of teenage life. It is here that the pursuit of happiness starts. Cameron (Joseph......

Ten Things I Hate About You and the Taming of the Shrew Notes

...A Comparison of Ten Things I Hate About You and Taming of the Shrew Summary: Examines the effect of social and cultural constraints on characters in Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare and Ten Things I Hate About You, a film based on the bard's play. ________________________________________ The story of The Taming of the Shrew is one that raises important issues both in the Shakespearean text and in the modern appropriation 10 Things I Hate About You. How does each composer's use of this story reflect the time in which each was composed" The Taming of the Shrew was written in the Elizabethan Era in England at a time when men were considered to be superior to women. The patriarchal society of this time is reflected to a large extent in the text and various implications of traditional values can be noted. The modern appropriation, Ten Things I Hate About You, goes along the same story line however it is quite evident that the different context has a significant impact upon the content. The most obvious indicator of the type of society is given through the medium that each text is presented in. The Taming of the Shrew is a play and was staged for audiences during the early 17th century. The fact that Shakespeare chose to write a play rather than, say, a comic strip or screenplay, indicated that it was the most popular form of entertainment at the time. The best way for Shakespeare to have his work known was through the most popular form of entertainment. The......

If You Can Keep Your Head

...If If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating, And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream -- and not make dreams your master; If you can think -- and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two imposters just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools; If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in......

Hate

...“Work will set you free”. This mendacious phrase was hung upon the atrocity-ridden concentration camp of Auschwitz. The Jewish people already being literally ripped from their homes were forced into labor camps not knowing that their fate had been unjustly sealed, even before the war began. From 1933 to 1945, six million Jewish people were erased from the face of this earth for the sake of being scapegoats. Somebody to blame, somebody to be the burden bearers of an entire nation, to give one man and his idea the power that he needed to commit such horrific acts of violence and crimes against humanity. Whole generations were lost, not because of disease or famine, but because of a sick and twisted ideology that a specific group of humans were less than the ground they walk on. Those six million people are now no more than a photo, a memory, a dream, maybe even a name on a memorial wall. The name of this event is as well-known as the people who began and participated in this systematic annihilation of a race, it is called The Holocaust. The name in itself has a deeper meaning beyond the nine letters given to the event. The name represents how much this has truly affected the world over the past sixty years. Some would say that The Holocaust was just genocide, which has happened many times through the course of written and televised history. The name shows how significant it was after World War II and how significant it still is today by simply having a specific name...

Case Study: a Tale of Two Friends and of Jobs Worth Having

...Case study: A Tale of Two Friends and of Jobs Worth Having In Short, the writer has a friend who took a job at the Mercedes plant, but he was disappointed about the kind of work. However, he cannot quit from this job due to the good paid and his responsibilities toward his family. The writer talked in his article about his position on the Assembly Line jobs—such as those at Mercedes, or at McDonald’s and his senator friend opinion in same regard. Answer 1: I will have to disagree with most of his positions, especially his opinion on his senator friend. Answer 2: The writer is completely right when he said that all of us dreams of doing something worthwhile and all of us want to be good workers. Answer 3: First point, as he mentioned his friend has been working on this line of work for several years and he should know that transferring to a bigger plant would mean more work since he is getting a better compensation. As to what he said that boring, degrading, miserable, dehumanizing works are not work worth doing, this could vary in different opinion from different people. There are a lot of these kinds of works, but people are still taking it because they are satisfied with it, no other option, or due to physical and mental limitation of certain individuals. Boring works doesn’t necessarily mean it is not worth doing. If his friend is not capable of handling the task that Mercedes requires then he shouldn’t have left the smaller plant. Second point, his......

...I would like to choose two distinct managers from two different eras who changed the perspective of the management field. As I am very passionate to learn management theory and practices, I am keen to take this opportunity of going on a long trip with two management gurus from two different eras i.e. the past and present. I am confident that the discussion will be interesting and would teach different management skills, effective solutions being applied for the past and current management problems, and future threats to the management field. This would encourage me to achieve my future business goals. I am keen to acquire knowledge of the past and present management practices; how the management evolved; how it helped in nurturing society’s basic needs; how to predict the management challenges in coming years. The first person would be the mythological figure lord Rama from the classical era of Ramayana. He was a selfless and compassionate leader and provided a concrete vision to his subordinates. Rama and his army courageously defeated powerful Ravana and rescued Sita. Ravana’s army was more powerful, than Rama’s army, and then also Rama believed in his soldiers and motivated his troop to continue the unequal fight, and win against Ravana. It is clear that a good manager is the one who believes in his workforce and respect their skills. From Lord Rama, Maintain resolve during crisis and take proactive steps to meet challenges. I believe that today's business world can......

Bilinguals Are Not Two Monolinguals in One Head

...The bilingual is not two monolinguals in one person Early studies on bilingualism have spread the idea that bilingualism was a disadvantage, that it might help developing anomalies (Pichon and Borel-Maisonny, 1937) or deteriorate children’s intelligence (Eichorn-Jones: 1952). From the 1970s onwards, more extensive and in-depth studies have discredited this idea that bilingualism was cognitively damaging and have shown the complexity and the specific characteristics of bilingual acquisition. Among these fundamental research, we can find Volterra & Taeschner (1978), Grosjean (1989), Romaine (1989), De Houwer (1995) and Genesee (1996), to name but a few. These research have highlighted the fact that Bilingual First Language Acquisition (BFLA) differs in many ways from the monolingual language acquisition that has been viewed as the ‘normal’ acquisition of language in the past. In this essay, the main focus will be on the bilingual-specific characteristics that children inevitably adopt when learning two or more languages simultaneously. We will see that to some extent, bilinguals can be compared to monolinguals. However, this essay will be centred on Grosjean’s quote ”the bilingual is not two monolinguals in one person”. The complex linguistic strategies supported by bilingual datas will reveal the singularity of bilingual language acquisition, which cannot simply be reduced to the idea of two monolinguals in one head. Studies focusing on whether bilinguals can be......

Hate Crime Analysis - Homosexuality

...Running Head: Hate Crime Analysis – Homosexuality Hate crime Analysis – Homosexuality CJA540 Nicole Paddock Eric Drennan October 18, 2010 Abstract Hate crimes are crimes that are motivated by prejudices. Hate crimes can be against people because of their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. Incidents of hate crime can be physical assault, property damage, bullying, harassment, verbal abuse, graffiti, and/or hate mail. This paper will discuss hate crime has it pertains to sexual orientation focusing on homosexual men. It will provide a brief description of why homosexuals are victimized and discuss two cases of hate crime. The paper will then talk about the restorative justice models that could be used to help and the best instrument to measure the victimization of homosexual men. The paper will conclude with discussing the criminological theory that best describes why there is victimization with homosexual men. Homosexuality and victimization have become two things that unfortunately go hand in hand. Homosexual men are the prime targets for those who commit hate crimes. “Past studies show that gay men are more likely to be the victim of violent crime than lesbians. Gay men are often targeted out in public such as attending gay bars and nightclubs and in neighborhoods that are predominately occupied by gay men” (Waldern-Haugrud & Berg, p. 4 2004). One of the reasons homosexual men are targeted is because homosexual men tend to be......

Compare and Contrast of Two Peoplewhom You Admire

...Two People Whom You Admire I believe that human will only keep on moving when there is a motivator for them. For me, what motivates me to be a kind and helpful person are the two people whom I admire. One of them is Ms. Kelly, my English teacher when I was in Standard Six, and the other one is Madam Tan, the aunty who lives next to my house. Ms. Kelly is a very kind person. She always teaches us to give hand to those people who are in needs and she also never tired in helping people. For example, one of my friend’s family situation wasn’t so good and therefore Ms. Kelly buy him breakfast almost every morning. She hopes that my friend will not feel hungry during the school time and it can help him to be more concentrate in his studies. Madam Tan is also a very softhearted lady. Although she was not very high-educated, she always demonstrates me and also her kids to help other people. During weekends, she will visit to the orphanage and help the workers to teach the children and also playing with them. Madam Tan also always invites me and my family to be a volunteer and join her to do social works. Although Ms. Kelly and Madam Tan both influence me to be a kind person, there are still some differences between two of them. Firstly, Ms. Kelly is a gentle and quite person while Madam Tan is an active person. Ms. Kelly is not talkative; she usually spends her time by reading or gardening near her house during evening. In contrast, Madam Tan is an outgoing person but she...

I Hate You

...7th grade science Ms.Anderson September 13, 2013 What’s The Fastest Way To Cool A Soda ? For my science project , I am going to try to cool down a soda can starting at room temperature. The method of my project is filling up a bowl with water, amount of water depends on how many soda cans you use. You can cool down as many sodas as you would like to. So in this case I will be using 32 ounces to fill my bowl because I will be testing this three times. Then when you finish poring the water into your bowl, you will be adding five ice cubes and 5 teaspoons of salt. Why am I adding salt and ice you might ask? The water is at room temperature. The ice cubes are at a much lesser temperature - ice is formed at 4 degrees Centigrade and the ice cubes are colder. When your drop the ice cubes in the water, heat exchange takes place and the heat of the water starts to melt ice cubes. The temperature of ice is very low. When it comes into contact with your drink, the ice absorbs heat from the drink and conversely, the drink loses heat to to the ice. Hence, by losing heat, the drink gets cooler. Salt lowers the freezing point of water. Normally water freezes at 32 degrees Farenheit/0 Celsius. The addition of salt will lower the temperature at which water freezes so that the salt water solution is still a liquid below 32......

Hate Crimes

...Unit VIII Research Paper Cherie Quiles Waldorf College Introduction My topic is hate crime, more specifically, hate crimes within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community. It relates to social change because even though it is no longer considered taboo in our country, it is not widely accepted within certain groups or communities. Many people struggle to coexist within members of this community. A hate crime is a crime in which a crime is committed against another person due to the offender being biased against someone else. This is usually due to the person’s race, religion, creed or sexual preference. Although hate crimes in a new category of punishable crime, it has been around for a while in the United States. Many members of the LGBT community make up the majority of the crimes that are the most underreported. Laws against Hate Crimes Laws against hate crimes and discrimination were created because members within this community are being discriminated against daily and at alarming rates. Transgender people are fighting against discrimination at work, schools, housing and public places, to include the ability to use the appropriate restrooms. Contrary to what is seen on television, such as Orange is the New Black, within prison/jails populations, most transgendered people are not housed with the sex they identify with. In recent news, a transgendered woman, Vicky Thomas, was found hanging in her cell. Vicky had reported being harassed...

You Just Dont Understand

...You Just Don’t understand In Deborah Tannen’s book, “You just don’t understand,” I thought there were many interesting points she brought up. Especially dealing with how male and female communication styles differ. I also thought many of her arguments were completely correct and I have experienced them in day-to-day life. Her first discussion that caught my eye was the difference between men and women responding through frustration when dealing with dilemmas. In this section, “I’ll fix it for you,” Tannen discusses how men and women are easily frustrated by the way the opposite sex responds to problems. She explains how women often recent the fact that men offer solutions to their problems. They do this because men tend to want to fix the problem immediately and put it behind them. However on the other hand men become frustrated with women because they don’t always take action to solve the dilemma. They instead will draw out the problem and complain about it instead of seeking and immediate solution. This was something is completely agree with. From personal experiences I’ve seen men handle problems by solving the issue as soon as it arises and laughing it off to forget about it. While women sometimes wallow in their problems and gossip about them instead of finding a solution to move on. Another point dealing with this topic that I thought was very true was when men try to help women solve the problem. The man tries to give a solution to the problem from his own......
