What did you learn? Throughout the break I watched Russian Revolution In Color. I learned that Russian society was almost completely destroyed over night. People wanted poverty, crime and privilege class division were to be gotten ride of and a new era of socialism promised peace, prosperity and equalize for all people but, the socialism experiment failed. Millions died and 1/3 of world pop lived in shadow of communism due to the idealistic dream that turned into nightmare, the Socialism experiment. Port of St. Petersburg was an island built to protect Russian from a sea. It is an active navel base. In February 1917 Russia reached its peek. Stock of bread were being rationed. People waited over night but to be given part of a loaf of bread. On February 23 the people crowed onto the streets and protested the lack of bread. The women began their protest first. Afterwards they threw snowballs at the factories where men worked where they soon joined the women in their protest again the lack of break. 100 thousand people went on strike. After the next two days the protest grew larger and larger but on February 25th the soldiers came in to put a stop to the protest. These soldiers were called Cossacks, they were soldiers who were very loyal to the Tsar, they were ordered to shoot protesters if the did not disperse. 50 laid dead but the Tsar failed to end the protest and the protesters carried banners that now read "Freedom or Death." Soon the soldiers grew angry, they exclaim that their family too was in need of food and if they should kill them too? Afterwards a mutiny started. Also, the Navy was at the forefront of technology. The sailors were highly disciplined and some were even veterans who failed at Rebellion Revolutions. The first of March sailors had a meeting and revolted. They killed or imprisoned all captains who treated them badly before of those who were…...

A Piece of String

...LaTasha Smith 16 August 2012 A Piece of String The short story of A Piece of String was written by Guy de Maupassant in 1883. It is a short story based on in my opinion the theory of “guilty until proven innocent”. The moral of the story is that you must tell the truth to maintain a reputation of honesty and gain trust from others, because a reputation of deceit and dishonesty will make people believe you are not trustworthy, so even when you're telling the truth, it is hard for others to believe. The main characters in The Piece of Strings are Maître Hauchecorne, M. Malandain and The Mayor of Goderville. Maître is a peasant, who picks up anything he sees as useful off the ground. The story begins where he is walking through the market and comes across a piece of string. He picks the string up and keeps it for himself. Later, in the Market, Maître Hanchecornes enemy accuses him of stealing someone else's pocketbook. This soon gets around Goderville, and people begin to distrust and dislike Maître Hauchecorne, despite his claim of innocence. Maître Hauchecorne already had a bad reputation with the citizens of Goderville due to his previous lying and over exaggerations and telling unbelievable stories. This is the main reason for the people's reluctance to believe Maître Hauchecorne, although he is telling the truth. The pocketbook is eventually returned, however the town still doesn’t believe his innocence. The pain and heartache that Maitre Hauchecorne suffered...

Period Piece

...“Period Piece” by Joyce Cary Summary «Period Piece» written by an Anglo-Irish writer Joyce Cary is a humorous short story. It is basically about a respectable middle-aged man, Frank Tutin, who has fallen in love with his young secretary Phyllis. As a result Tutin wanted to divorce his wife Clare, but his mother-in-law Mrs. Beer protested against it and she came to London to save her daughter’s family. Old Mrs. Beer was the widow of a canon. She was a short, stout woman with a red face and a heavy jaw – a pugnacious and indomitable face. At the beginning of the story we learn that there is something defeated about her. No one seems to listen to her, she has given up hope of any serious attention from anybody. But at the end of the story, when we understand that her words turned out to be true and helped to save her daughter’s family, she felt like a winner, maybe for the first time in her life: «Even in the way she slaps down the cards, one can see a certain self-satisfaction. It seems that she cherishes one victory». As far as Tutin is concerned, he is a humane, a kindly and a thoroughly good natured, man, hating to quarrel with anybody.

An Explosive Piece

...Sherman 1 “An Explosive Piece” Kelsey Sherman Professor Jill Palacki ART 101-53 December 11, 2013   Sherman 2 After visiting the Philadelphia Art Museum, I chose to looking Ellsworth Kelly, and the “November Painting.” Kelly is a Modern American artist from New York. He studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn from 1941-1943, and also studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston from 1946-1948. Kelly travel to France in 1949 and infrequently attended classes at Ecole des beaux-arts where he was introduced to Surrealism and Neo-Plasticism that inspired many of his future art pieces (Guggenheim). Ellsworth Kelly’s “November Painting” was painted in 1950. It is an oil piece painted on wood in a white frame. The only colors that are displayed in the painting are black and white that makes the piece organized and concise, while also creating a nice contrast. The canvas itself is a slightly off-white. The off-white canvas is somewhat textured from the oil paint. Intermittently dispersed across the canvas are small, separate black and white geometric shapes, which unlike the background retain a smooth surface. The shapes are unorganized, and do not seem to be of any particular pattern. The shaped are not identical to each other, making each one unique and completely random. They contain to their own space, and do not intersect with each other (Philadelphia Museum of Art). “November Painting” is an experimental piece that began as a black and white......

A Piece of the Action

...A Piece of the Action Norman Mailer’s sports article on boxing, The Death of Benny Paret published in 1984, claims that Paret was a powerful young boxer who had his life cut short when he fought for keeping his welterweight title against Emile Griffith. Mailer supports this by explaining how vicious Griffith was throughout the entire fight, ending with Paret’s tragic death. He goes into extreme detail using similes and a large amount of commas to show imagery. Mailer connects with his readers by showing the tragic sorrow of a death happening right in front of their eyes, but also showing that Paret did not die in vain, but in glory. The fight was cast as brutal and vicious, and with every crowd, there comes a story. The certain sportscaster who wrote this attempts to place readers into his seat as if they were there, viewing the fight in all its glory their selves. In doing so, the writer makes sure that his words keep up with the rhythm of the battle, his words having as much impact as the punches thrown. Descriptive words that the writer uses include “clubbing” and “whimpering” accompanied by similes which simply explain the impact that each one of Griffith’s punches had on Paret. Guardado 2 “Griffith was in like a cat ready to rip the life out of a huge boxed rat…right hand whipping like a piston rod which has broken through the crankcase, or like a baseball bat demolishing a pumpkin.” These phrases use extensive use of both diction and imagery to bring the battle......

Piece of String

...When you read a story, you must realize that the point of view that the story is written in can help you learn more about the story. It can also create more excitement, and create more mystery while you read. Both “The Necklace”, and “The Piece of String” stories, are written in a Third Person Limited perspective. This means that the narrator is an outsider who sees into the mind of one of the characters. This is a major factor in determining how the stories make you feel about themselves, and how interesting the stories are. In a third-person view story, the reader can see the story itself from different points of view, and not just one. He or she can learn more, and know more than the individual characters themselves. In a first-person view story, the reader sees from the point of view of the narrator, so he/she may see more dialog including feels, thoughts, and ideas. In a third-person view, the reader will see more facts, such as what all of the other characters do. However, they will not see as many of the inner-feelings or thoughts of the characters, unless it is third-person omniscient. In addition, a third-person view is often more easy to figure out if it is a mystery, or similar plot structure, because the reader learns more facts from concrete reading, then having to think about whats going on in a story. In a first-person view, it is harder to figure out, generally, the plot details and story, because the reader only gains the facts of what the......

Piece of Chalk

...A PIECE OF CHALK Q-What was the controversy between the old woman and writer on the brown paper? In the summer holidays he went into the kitchen (which along with the rest of the house) by putting six very bright colored chalks in his pocket. He asked the owner of the kitchen if she had any brown paper. She mistook the purpose and the rationale of the existence of brown paper. She seemed to have an idea that if a person wanted brown paper he must be waiting to tie up parcels, which was the last thing he wanted to do indeed. Hence she dwelt very much on the varying qualities of toughness and endurance in the material. He explained to her that he only wanted to draw pictures on it, and he did not want them to endure in the least; and that from his point of view, therefore, it was a question not of tough consistency but of responsive surface, a thing comparatively irrelevant in a parcel. When she understood that he wanted to draw she offered to overwhelm him with notepaper, apparently supposing that he did his notes and correspondence on old brown paper wrappers from motives of economy. He then tried to explain the rather delicate logical shade, that he not only liked brown paper, but quality of brownness in paper. After that he put that brown paper in his pocket and other things and went out on to the great downs. Q- What type of drawing did the writer do in the story? Discuss his thoughts about nature. When he went on to the great downs, he crawled across those colossal......

Position Piece

...Heather Chovitz Professor Solomon June 3, 2016 Position Piece Two Families should be responsible for taking care of their old relatives with the help of the government. The point is that there is help, but the people don’t have to get the help. It’s more about the choice of entitlements or going through it alone. If choosing the entitlement then it’s the factor of someone else having to pay for it. Some may not agree with this because some people believe that others shouldn’t be “lazy”. It’s also a matter of some people really caring about paying for someone else’s healthcare or cash assistance if they can pay for it themselves. Some people are more empathetic of those that cannot afford healthcare for their loved ones, and choose to not mind helping those in need. In the United States, our health care that we receive truly costs a lot more than other countries around us. Elderly citizens typically need more medical care, and the cost of needed medical care can get to the point that some might need to choose between buying food or filling prescriptions that they need. Most elderly citizens are surrounded by families that do their best to help out, but sometimes find it hard enough having to handle the burden of cost for themselves as well as their children let alone having to pay for medical costs for their loved ones. When your loved ones cannot afford commercial healthcare or don’t still have it form a job that they retired from, they have to sign up for Medicare...

Puzzle Pieces

...Puzzle Pieces The transition from high school to college is an exciting and challenging time. It is a great milestone in one’s life. There are many differences between the life of a high school student and a college student. Some people will be able to jump right in and adjust to this change effortlessly. Others will take years to adapt or may never grab hold of the whole college experience. High School and College are both educational grounds for a student to grow and improve their lives with knowledge. High school and college are like puzzle pieces on one side they fit together, but on the other side they are something completely different. High School is a continuation of elementary and middle school where students learn what is expected as the standard of education set by the government. Up until the age of eighteen students have no choice but to attend because of the law. During school hours there are rules and regulations which one cannot break, because there will be punishments for ones actions. There is a strict schedule that students have laid out for them and that they must follow. Along with the basic classes there is social learning that takes place during them. Students still need to understand how to react to situations, such as it is rude to talk over someone else who started talking first. The high school presents a wide variety of activities and field trips. With for years of experience and routine they get used to being high school students. ......

The controller also provided the engagement team with an accounting memo discussing Velocity’s new plan. MEMO To: Audit Engagement Team From: Controller, Velocity Cellular Services Subject: Accounting for New Prepaid Phone Service Plan Date: August 31, 2008 Velocity Cellular Services (Velocity) sells wireless services and products based on the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) standard. Under the GSM standard, each subscriber is required to have an activation card to access the network; the activation card is therefore necessary for subscribers to use their cellular phones. The activation card identifies the subscriber, provides the subscriber with a unique phone number, and works only on a specific carrier’s network (i.e., the activation card is not interchangeable with other carrier networks). Velocity is planning to promote and market a prepaid phone service plan called “Power Starterpack” as part of its line of service plans to existing wireless subscribers (i.e., individuals who already own a cellular phone).
