The way up to heaven a) Mrs. And Mr. Foster is an old married couple who are wealthy and lives in New York. Mr. Foster is always tormenting his wife with a fear of being late. He does that by making sure that they are two or three minutes late to everything. One day Ms. Foster are going to Paris to visit her daughter and grandchildren. Her hunsband is following her to the airport, but he is making sure she gets late to her light. However, she manage to be at the airport at time, but her flight get cancelled to the next day. Mr. Foster convinces her to come home in the meantime. The next morning, she is ready to leave, but as always her husband has forgotten something inside. While he is inside, she hears a cry for help, but she closes her door, and take of to the airport. After six weeks in Paris and several letters to her husband, she returns home, only to find her husband dead. I think that she already knew that he was dead, but she cared more to visit her family in Paris, than to save her husband. I think that is because she was so tired of his torments. b) Mr. Foster is a rich seventy years old man, who is kind of rude. He likes to bother his wife, even though she gets mentally sick because of him. He is not very loving, which you can tell by the way he is treating his wife, and that he did not let his wife go to Paris to visit their daughter and grandchildren for a long time.
Mrs. Foster on the other hand, is a very loving woman. She has stayed with her husband all these years even though he has been nothing but cruel to her. It seems like she really loves him, because she listens to him and nearly gives up their daughter just to please him. She changes troughout the story. At first she waits for her husband, and let him let her be late. But at the end of the story, I think she has had enough and is ready to let him go. c) The story takes place…...

How to Get over a Break-Up in a Healthy Way

...How to get Over a Break-up in a Healthy Way Break-ups are one of the most difficult phases of life. It is tough, but accepting the end and moving on is even tougher. It is easy to get into self-destructive behavior due to the extreme feeling of loss. The hurt is inevitable, but so is the recovery. It can seem overwhelming at first, but taking it a step at a time, a day at a time, will make it easier to move on into a happier world. Breaking up is like trying to recover from an addiction, or breaking a habit. Even when a relationship has ended, the connection that was shared between two people is not easily erased from the mind or body. Breaking the "ex habit" requires self-control and self-compassion. First, accept that it is over and take the time to grieve. It is okay to cry. Crying is cathartic and relieves pain. Show self-compassion. Understand that there are unplanned events in life that are painful, but that people get through events with resilience and help from others. Second, end all contact. Just like there were steps of courtship, there are steps to wean off from a relationship. Delete numbers from phones and delete their account off Facebook and other social networks. Being friends with an ex and knowing about their life will only hurt more because of the constant reminder of the current status: No longer together. Third, put away all reminders of an ex. Delete emails, photos, or stash them away where it cannot be seen. Looking at photos and reminiscing of......

Heavens Gate

...on earth. Together they had created Heavens Gate. Applewhite, or also known as ‘BO’, believed that the earth was going to be recycled and that it was also a garden to grow souls. Once the souls were developed it was time to exit. To most people the “exit” was suicide, but for members of the cult it was moving on to a more developed kingdom. ‘Do’ had told his members to look for a sign in the night sky. They believed that a spaceship, or UFO, would pick them up and take them to start their new lives. If someone were to stay a member of Heavens Gate, they had to follow many strict rules. They were first cut off from all contact with family and friends. Each member was given a new name. All aspects of life were regulated, such as, what they read, what they watched on TV and even how they shaved. Applewhite and several others underwent castration in Mexico as a means of maintaining the ascetic lifestyle. There was to be no emotion and no gender. Women did not wear dresses and did nothing to bring attention to their body. They even cut their hair. Sex was also “too human” and considered bad. Their purpose in this group was to prepare for what they had called “graduation”. In 1997 Applewhite had said that the commit, Hale Bopp, was the sign that it was time to exit and when it had become brighter in late March of 1997 the members started doing fair-well videos for their family and friends. On March 26th, 1997, Rio Diangelo, a former Heavens Gate member, walked into the San......

Heavens Gate

...seaside town of Waldport, Oregon in 1975. For months before, they had put up fliers on telephone poles urging people to attend the meeting to discover the truth about reality. Two hundred people arrived at the Bayshore Inn Hotel to find out what the fliers were about. The Two believed that to be saved, spiritual-minded people must recognize that the appearance that most humans have souls is only an illusion. Only those who truly had souls and were ready to be harvested by God would recognize the truth of the message. Once they did, they would give up their worldly clutter at once and follow a strict regimen. Using biblical notions about sexless angels and the praise Christ gave to those who sacrificed family life to follow him, they insisted that spiritual perfection came only at a price. One had to first see the truth about the evils around them and want desperately to free oneself. The demands for members were overwhelming, which slowed down the cult's early success, but Applewhite and Nettles believed that purging earthly ways was the only means for rediscovering the alien beings they truly were. There was to be no more sexual contact and no personal privacy. The members soon formed into an isolated community, sharing the same thoughts and repeatedly affirming the dogma and prophecies of Applewhite and Nettles. They developed "crew-mindedness," as Applewhite called it, working together in one mind the way they might have to function on a spaceship. Applewhite and Nettles......

Seventh Heaven

...7th Heaven- Nothing Endures But Change Apply concepts from chapter (10) to this show. Examples are: peer pressure, autonomy vs. attachment, parent-conflict, identity development, etc... Provide examples as well as theory and/or theories. YOU MUST comment or describe an example of each concept listed above. Did this show demonstrate evidence to support these concepts or refute them? You will be graded on the thoroughness of your answers as well as answering all of the examples listed above. In 7th Heaven, Lucy is influenced by peer pressure, although it was not directly. Her friends, Sarah and Jenny, wanted her to have pizza with them, so they helped her come up with reasons for her to tell her parents so Lucy could go. Lucy would do anything to hang out with them because she wanted to be their friend, and to fit in. Autonomy vs. attachment also takes place in 7th Heaven. Matt wants to leave the house as soon as he can, but his parents want him to stay. His mother even tried to bribe him into staying by building a bathroom into his new room (the attic). Also, Lucy’s parents are trying to control her life as well as all of her siblings. They don’t want them to grow up so fast, so they think that by restricting what they do, they can keep their children from growing up. The parent-conflict that takes place in this show is just like everyday conflict that happens within every family. Lucy wants to go out with friends, but her parents were having a hard time letting her go......

Heaven & Hell

...There is no solid proof that Heaven or Hell really exist. That is why I do not necessarily believe in them, but I believe in the idea of them. Even the bible itself speaks of heaven and hell. Jesus says there is in (Matthew 10:28). But in (Matthew 13:40) is what Jesus says about hell, “As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the end of this world.” I believe he is saying that hell will not exist until this world comes to an end, that Hell is where the wicked and the children of the wicked will go. In Psalm 68:2 it says, “as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.” this is saying that hell is not forever, the wicked shall eventually perish in the flames of hell. Heaven is where all of your pain ends, where the moment you get there you find all of the healing you need. You get to live in Gods kingdom with him, Jesus and all of the saints that have also gone to Heaven. While Hell is mentioned, Jesus describes it as a place where sinners who have refused to change their ways go. He compared it to Gehenna, a rubbish dump outside Jerusalem, people in wretched poverty picked their way through it to find scraps, and fires burned. Being raised in a very catholic home I have come to know many things. I know that God is loving, kind and forgiving. Yet my question is why does he tell us to forgive those who have done us wrong but he does not. He is not very forgiving if he condemns those who have sinned......

The Heaven of Animals

...The Heaven of Animals By: James Dickey The poem “The Heaven of Animals”, by James Dickey, explores the relationships between predator and prey as well as the controversial topic of whether or not animals have souls. The end of the poem also touches on the idea of a circle of life; death being the centre. The structure of the poem as well as Dickey’s use of poetic devices reflects these themes whilst also painting a vivid mental imagine of “the heaven of animals” for the reader. In the first stanza, Dickey introduces the animals with the simple phrase “The soft eyes open.” (Line 1) Throughout the poem, there is no mention of any specific animal, but in the opening line of the poem, Dickey chose to represent animals as a whole rather than individual species. This hints at the idea of everyone being created equally and everyone deserving the chance of a perfect afterlife. The reader is also expected to draw the parallel between the title and the setting of the poem, because within the poem, it is never said that they are in “heaven”. The vivid imagery allows the reader to fully understand the beauty of animal heaven. Dickey is describing this place as a more perfect version of the animal’s habitat on earth. This creates a sense of fulfilment which is carried throughout the entire poem. The next stanza is the one that raises the controversial topic of animals not having souls. Dickey presents the reader with a very clear paradox: if animals do not have souls, then which...

5 Ways to Finance Your Start-Up Venture

...5 ways to finance your start-up venture Do you have a great business idea that you want to put into action? Is the lack of funds stopping you from achieving your dream? Here are some winning tips to help start your venture. 1. Consider bootstrapping - Using personal finances or bootstrapping is a great way for an entrepreneur to start his business. Capital can be raised from savings accounts, credit cards and retirement accounts. One can also raise equity by selling properties, rare collectibles, vehicles, etc. 2. Be realistic about your investment - Rather than taking the maximum, ask for a loan that will meet one aspect of your business. For instance, if you need money for your inventory, assess the cost and ask for a minimum amount. Once you repay the initial amount, the investor also gets confidence in you. Ensure that you show your progress at every step. 3. Borrowing money from friends and family members - It can be challenging to get loans from banks or private lenders. Instead, turn to your friends and family. Don't just look up to your father or best friend, but also shortlist those people who believe in your project, understand your plan and are aware of the risks involved. Ensure that it's a loan and not an equity investment as you do not want too many friends and family members to own a stake in your company. An added advantage is that private loans have low-interest rates compared to those given by banks. Also, put every transaction in writing to avoid any...

Stairway to Heaven

...Roll It is easy to get caught up in the earthly possessions that we have. It is far more difficult to let go of your greed and to find your own happiness before your death. This was especially prevalent in the 1970’s when Led Zeppelin produced “Stairway to Heaven.” America was in the middle of an economic downfall that essentially left two classes: rich and poor. Led Zeppelin wrote “Stairway to Heaven” to enlighten those who have lost their way in greed and materialism. They gained their listeners attention by drastically changing their otherwise hard rock tone to a softer power ballad, using a storybook method to make their argument, and using appeals such as ethos, pathos and logos throughout the song to make a long lasting connection to their audience. When “Stairway to Heaven” aired in 1971, avid Led Zeppelin listeners were taken aback by the song’s sound. Led Zeppelin is known for its hard rock tone and musicality. “Stairway to Heaven” and its musicality begins as a very slow, depressing guitar arpeggio and a story begins to take place. Slowly and deliberately, more and more instruments are introduced to the whole of the song as the true purpose of the song comes to light, ending in a more typical, upbeat Led Zeppelin sound. The composers wanted to grab their listeners’ attention by being so drastically different. What they had to say was worth the initial sacrifice of being the opposite of their norm. The lyrics of “Stairway to Heaven” are very poetic and are......

Heaven

...problematise the very possibility of a giving that can be unequivocally disassociated from receiving and taking. The important point is that, for Derrida, a genuine gift requires an anonymity of the giver, such that there is no accrued benefit in giving. The giver cannot even recognise that they are giving, for that would be to reabsorb their gift to the other person as some kind of testimony to the worth of the self - ie. the kind of self-congratulatory logic that rhetorically poses the question "how wonderful I am to give this person that which they have always desired, and without even letting them know that I am responsible?". This is an extreme example, but Derrida claims that such a predicament afflicts all giving in more or less obvious ways. For him, the logic of a genuine gift actually requires that self and other be radically disparate, and have no obligations or claims upon each other of any kind. He argues that a genuine gift must involve neither an apprehension of a good deed done, nor the recognition by the other party that they have received, and this seems to render the actuality of any gift an impossibility. Significantly, however, according to Derrida, the existential force of this demand for an absolute altruism can never be assuaged, and yet equally clearly it can also never be fulfilled, and this ensures that the condition of the possibility of the gift is inextricably associated with its impossibility. For Derrida, there is no solution to this type of......

From the Street Cart All the Way Up to the Exquisite Dining Table…

...From the Street Cart all the way up to the exquisite Dining Table… Based on the infamous common saying of “You are what you eat”; some may argue that they do not possess the freedom of choice in what they choose to eat on a daily basis throughout their life due to the external factors that affect their decision making. With limited income and resources, many people from the lower social backgrounds tend to have a restricted culinary menu of which they can opt to eat from. Investigating the other end of the scale of where the wealthier level of the social ladder are looked at closely; you will find the inverse of this trend where the range of eating preferences are limitless and not bound by any spending power restrictions, thus giving them the liberty to indulge in an abundance of edible choices. I am thoroughly interested in studying the eating habits of the wealthy and the un-wealthy classes in Egypt. My objective behind this research is to gain an understanding of the differences in terms of eating behavior according to their social background. My aim was to identify their likes, dislikes, thoughts, perceptions and motivations behind certain choices. By studying those factors closely, the motives behind consumption of different classes based on their economic circumstances were revealed. The reason behind this study was to yield significantly valuable information and insight into the eating habits of the rich and poor segments in Egypt. By doing this, I was able to......

The Applause of Heaven

...The Applause of Heaven The Applause of Heaven easily becomes a step by step description of how to rebuild the believer’s heart. God is relentlessly in pursuit of his children and He desires to welcome them home with applause. Through the Beatitudes, Lucado hopes to convey this message to rekindle the love inside God’s children. Within the first couple of chapters, Lucado immediately introduces the bi-product of Christ’s reconstruction of the believer’s heart. He begins his series of insights by introducing the idea of the Sacred Delight. This Sacred Delight is a holy joy that comes from God and is the gift received when a person surrenders everything they have come to know and cherish. Lucado recognizes this shift and says it starts with, “a demolition of the old structure and a creation of the anew,” and explicitly interjects that, “the more radical the change, the greater the joy. And it’s worth every effort, for this is the joy of God,” (Lucado, p12). Lucado breaks down what the idea of the Sacred Delight means. He says, “Sacred Delight is good news coming through the back door of [one’s own] heart. It’s what [one had] always dreamed but never expected. It’s the too-good-to-be-true coming true,” (Lucado, p10). Lucado is an excellent narrator and uses his words to truly convey an idea in a multitude of ways. He even goes further than just simple illustrations to explain what makes this Sacred Delight so joyful. “It is sacred because only God can grant it. It......
