Definition essay topic: Emo Emo has many meanings. The correct definition is that Emo is a music genre. Some People consider it only as a brief way to call someone emotional, although they are not correct. Emo is also about fashion, a way of dressing and expressing yourself through clothes and makeup. Originally, Emo was a style of music, punk rock that originated in North America around 1980. Some of the bands from that time included Rites of Spring and Embrace. Its sound and meaning changed and blended with pop punk and indie rock in the 1990s and new groups emerged such as Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate. The lyrics are about emotional things. It is a style of music in which the words have significant meaning to both the author and listener. Try listening to Emo music. Examples of Emo include Yage, Amanda Woodward, Rites of Spring, Embrace, Sunny Day Real Estate, I hate Myself, Indian Summer, Belle Epoque, Circle Takes The Square, Orchid, Dashboard Confessional, Embrace, Fugazi, Antioch Arrow and Twelve Hour Turn. Emo is not mainstream; you will not hear any Emo bands on the radio. Bands that have devoted their sound to hand-muted guitars and emotional lyrics are bands like Silverstein, Hawthorne Heights, Funeral for a Friend, Alesana, Escape the Fate and When Sparks Fly.
The style combines dramatic hardcore and sometimes over-the-top lyrics about feelings. Emo began to shift from being vague and undefined to a specific type of emotionally overbearing music that was romantic but distanced from the political nature of punk. A New York City based band called Texas is the Reason bridged the gap between indie rock and Emo during their brief three-year lifespan.
Another Emo band from the 90’s was Weezer whose…...

...seek.com.au on 17 October. I believe that, with my skills, experience and attitudes, I can bring a lot to the company and am excited about the prospect. My background is in web development but in the past few years I have turned my focus to web design and hope to develop my career further within a design agency. I am proficient using HTML, CSS, PHP, Flash, ActionScript, Java and C/C++. My last project at Resin8 IT Designers involved designing an SQL database, which I was able to complete well before deadline and for which the company has had very positive feedback. The project before that involved building custom interfaces and the client was impressed with my diplomacy skills and the way I was able to communicate to find out exactly what he wanted, and then bring the planned vision to life, working under pressure. W3C standards, SEO and capabilities of different web browsers are factors I always keep in mind while designing and developing web content and my referees can speak for my excellent coding standards. I enjoy working in a team. At university I offered my IT/design skills to the Chinese Club and I was an IT volunteer at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. I regularly volunteer some time to the RSPCA for their web design/development needs. I am also productive and focussed working independently. You can see some of my work on my personal projects on my website at richardhuang.com.au. Please refer to my resume for my full skills matrix and I hope to hear......

The Sound of Emo

...The Sound of Emo There are many stereotypes in society for every culture or group of people. These stereotypes are often based on musical influences, personalities, activities, and fashion. I am going to focus this essay on the group of people who are known as Emo. Both positive and negative attributes come from stereotyping an Emo follower, but most of society focuses on the negative. This essay will focus on all aspects in hopes of turning some of these negative stereotypes into more positive ones. The word Emo is often used to describe anyone who is perceived as being too emotional, often too sad or too dark. The term Emo is short for “Emotional Hardcore” which describes the genre of music an Emo follower would listen to. According to author Brian Bailey (2005), “[Emo music] is characterized by feelings of vulnerability, and...confessions about adolescence. Emo music draws from various genres of music including rock, punk, indie, pop, and heavy metal...The behaviors, attitudes, and values expressed through Emo music involve...despair, nostalgia, heartbreak, hope, and self-loathing.” These emotional characteristics and topics described in this genre's music often associate with the life experiences and characteristics of its listeners. Emo music is characterized by heavy, distorted, or acoustic guitar with male vocals ranging from soft whispering to screaming. Lyrics are expressive and melancholy. Mainstream Emo bands include Dashboard Confessional, My......

What Is the What

...Hayley Van Pelt English 1022.10 Amy Fladeboe September 26, 2014 The Importance of Setting in “What is the What” The setting of What is the What, a story by Dave Eggers, takes place roughly between the 1980s and 2000s. The first sentence at the beginning of the book, Valentino Achak Deng, the central narrator, says “What is the What is the soulful account of my life…” (Eggers xiii). Describing this book perfectly in one sentence. Valentino was born in southern Sudan in the village of Marial Bai. He fled in the late 1980s during the second Sudanese civil war, when his village was destroyed by murahaleen. Valentino spent nine years in Ethiopian and Kenyan refugee camps where he worked as a social advocate. In 2001 he resettled in Atlanta. This book shows symbolism, mood and a theme of how humans struggle to survive throughout Valentino’s life altering journey from where he came from to where he is now. Valentino stayed in Pinyudo, a refugee camp in Ethiopia, where he learned to read and write for three years. During his time spent in the camp, Valentino also had to do manual labor, farm work and other chores. Valentino was told to go into the forest to gather some kindling one day. The forest is frequently a symbol for death, danger or the unknown. “No one wanted to enter the forest, for in the forest, boys disappeared. The first two who died were well known for having been devoured by lions, and thus hunting in the forest for building materials became a job everyone chose to......

What to Be

...What to Be Society`s definition of a non-conformist is a person whose behavior or views do not conform to prevailing ideas or practices. To some people it is easy and simple to not conform to the proper manners of society and to others it doesn’t bother them a bit. In 2014, I could be a non-conformist by ignoring certain procedures of life, even though those certain actions can be seen as rebellion and lead to unasked for consequences. Martin Luther King Jr. fought against racial segregation and Jesus preached against Jewish tradition; both these men are seen as non-conformists by our society and both suffered serious consequences. If I were to become a nonconformist in 2014, I’d most likely do it by ignoring school rules such as not being able to use phones in school and having to ask for permission to leave the classroom with a reasonable excuse. Then at home I could ignore curfew, be irresponsible of my chores and not bother with the dress code set by my parents. But in the end I would have to suffer the consequences and eventually abide by the rules. Maybe these examples are too strong because nowadays everybody does their own thing and in teenagers, non-conformism can be seen as rebellion. In Elissa Karg`s, How To Be A Non-Conformist, she says “nonconformists smile only sardonic and sarcastic smiles.” To a grown adult a sarcastic smile can be seen as disrespectfulness and lower an image of the person. I think that non-conformism only leads to trouble for those that......

...drawers properly... for the fruits and veggies' sake! How Do the Drawers Work? Most humidity drawers are adjustable with a few clicks between low and high. These settings simply open or close a window in the drawer. For the low humidity setting the window is completely open; for the high humidity setting it is completely closed. What Should Go In Each Drawer? The general rule of thumb is to put things that tend to rot in a drawer with a low humidity setting. This includes fruits and veggies that emit an ethylene gas, like apples and pears, because leaving the window open on the drawer gives those gases a chance to escape. When the gases are released, it helps keep the fruits and vegetables from rotting prematurely. Things that wilt go in the high humidity drawer. This will be all your leafy greens like arugula, spinach, and herbs. By having the window closed, water vapor is held in the drawer and the moisture keeps the greens crisper and fresher longer. Keeping fruits and vegetables that are sensitive to ethylene gas, like strawberries, in this drawer will also keep them away from ethylene producers. Here's a handy list of what common fruits and vegetables should be kept in each drawer:...

In special cases, if the word the is an inseparable part of something's official title, it may be capitalized. Example: We visited The Hague. Rule 9. Do not capitalize city, town, county, etc., if it comes before the proper name. Examples: the city of New York New York City the county of Marin Marin County Rule 10. Always capitalize the first word in a complete quotation, even midsentence. Example: Bill said, "That job we started last April is done." Rule 11. For emphasis, writers sometimes capitalize a midsentence independent clause or question. Examples: One of her cardinal rules was, Never betray a friend. It made me wonder, What is mankind's destiny? Rule 12. Capitalize the names of specific course titles, but not general academic subjects. Examples: I must take history and Algebra 101. He has a double major in European economics and philosophy. Rule 13. Capitalize art movements. Example: I like Surrealism, but I never understood Abstract Expressionism. Rule 14. Do not capitalize the first item in a list that follows a colon. Example: Bring the following: paper, a pencil, and a snack. For more on capitalization after a colon, go to "Colons," Rules 1, 3, and 4, in Chapter Two. Rule 15. Do not capitalize "the national anthem." Rule 16a. Composition titles: which words should be capitalized in titles of books, plays, films, songs, poems,......

What for

...perfect. Disputes with his neighbors and court battles cause Pahom to be disliked by the Community, so even though he had more land, his position in the town was worse than ever. Pahom's life may have been improved by owning more land, but human nature prompted him to continue to be greedy, wanting even more than he already had. One day, Pahom hears word of a place where free land was given to any man who joins the Commune. Immediately the many acres of land that he does own seem unbearable and barren compared to the promise of better land. He asks himself, "Why should I suffer in this narrow hole, if one can live so well elsewhere?” Therefore, although he has plenty of good land and a good life, Pahom sells everything he owns to pursue what he thinks will complete his idea of a happy life. With the new land, Pahom was content, but soon he grew accustomed to it and began to want more once again. After renting extra land, Pahom decided it would be an even better idea if he actually owned all his land for he believed he "should be independent, and there would not be any unpleasantness". He planned to buy more land, but along came an opportunity that he would not let pass by. A tradesman passing through told Pahom of lush land, sold for nearly no money, so Pahom decided that land would be a better deal. "If I take it out there, I can get more than ten times as much for the money" he figured, so he abandoned everything he had worked for and went to check out the land. Just as......

WorldCom-CEO Ebbers underreported line costs by capitalizing rather than expensing. The internal auditing department found $3.8 million in fraud. Level 1: Is the action legal? If the action is illegal, then it is unethical. Level 2: Is the action fair to all involved? Your behavior should be fair to all parties involved. Note that the concept of fairness does not mean that everyone is happy with the outcome. It only means that the decision has been made in an impartial and unbiased manner. Level 3: Does the behavior make you feel good? It is understandable that not everyone agrees on what is right and fair. This question gets to the personal aspect because your conscience becomes a consideration. 2) Legitimate power is the power that is given to you by the company. An example of this would be a manager hiring an employee. Coercive power is the power that is derived from your formal position. Reward power is the ability to influence someone with something of value. This is the opposite of coercive since it is rewarding the individual. Connection power is based on using someone else’s legitimate power. This deals strongly with networking within and outside the company. Charismatic power makes people attracted to you.

About Emo

...The definition of Emo has nothing to do with cutting yourself, it has nothing to do with what clothes you wear, what music you listen to, or what strange color you dyed your hair last month. Emo is the short way of saying emotional...really. Emo means emotional, like you have very vivid emotions and have a certain way of expressing that. Today, people see them as people that wear all black and purple-sometimes even red- and listen to screamo all day in a room with black lights and posters of weird bands that have no point. This stereotype is ruining the point of people expressing the way they feel about something. I have 3 friends that are all Emo, one is angry majority of the time, another is depressed and has to take meds for it, and the other is just like me, just wears a lot of black and orange- like Halloween. Notice how none of them cut themselves or drug themselves until they pass out? That is because those things were for some dumb reason associated with Emo poeple. The one on anti-depressants, is on them because she had huge trauma in her life, and expressing it through nothing. She would sit and think until it was time to go to sleep...she would wake up and go through the same routine. So before you start stereotyping emos as cutters and things to that effect, learn about them and you'll notice that they are just emotional people, not freaks, not people that you should avoid, just emotional expressers....

We can take the ground we are legally following South Africa’s guidelines and have met their standards, as this is the destination of the whistles. Ethically, we take the ground that our levels were minutely higher than the levels set forth by the US. New lead limits for children’s products containing lead is 100 ppm – children’s products may not contain more than 100 ppm of lead if technologically feasible on August 14, 2011( Williams, 2011) Our test indicated 104 parts per million. Financially, we would not take a hit, unless any lawsuits came to be. Our advantages would stand for us financially, but not ethically nor lawfully by not ignoring the US standards to only follow what is set forth ( or not) by South Africa. 2. Elle Toys Co. can take the route of scraping the whistles and reproducing them to meet or beet the US standard of 100 parts per million. The initial hit will be financial, an approximate cost of $100,000 to reproduce and repackage the whistles. This not withstanding the cost to produce the first whistle that is slightly high over the legal limit. Ethically, we would be in good conscious and showing our customers we take the children’s safety very seriously, no matter their location in the world and showing the legal system we are rule followers, not law breakers. This choice holds out to more advantages legally and ethically and outweighs the disadvantage of a financial burden. 1 3. With......
