The Message”, Grandmaster Flash displayed the projects of his current era through rap poetry. He wants people from the present that future times to have a sense of government housing. Grandmaster Flash wanted to show that people devastating from the projects do have an intellect and that their “language of the streets” has equally valued knowledge. In order to describe his living to others, he gives an idea of his current depiction of underprivileged using slang, which others could interpret. In doing this, he demonstrate uses of imagery, metaphors and euphemism. In “The plight Message”, Grandmaster Flash portrays the precise slang description of poverty by presenting to the reader the living situations of residents in urban areas.Grandmaster Flash displays how people survive living around the urban areas. In “The Message”, “Crazy lady, livin’ in a bag / Eating out the garbage piles…”(Stanza 4, Lines 1-2) illustrates that the lady was literally living in a garbage bag and eating leftovers from the garbage to garbage to survive. “…used to be a fag-hag” (Stanza 4, Line 2) portrays that the woman has a sense of beauty, and would be comfortable around homosexual men than straight men. Grandmaster Flash used the slang term “fag-hag” to show what the woman used to be and whom she would prefer to be with but others would make fun of her. It can be a result of how she became insane and started living on the streets. “She went to the city and got so so seditty / She had to get a pimp, she couldn’t make it on her own” (Stanza 4, Lines 7-8) illustrates that the woman went to the city for her everyday living to become a prostitute. However, she could not survive by herself so she ended up getting a pimp to survive and get to places. To the peoples’ opinions, having to resort to prostitution, being homeless, etc, was a way of their cost of survival. The living situations in urban areas are so unsafe that people were not only afraid to step out, but also to leave their homes in the projects. From “The Message” is “Junkie’s in the alley way with a baseball bat” (Stanza 1, Line 7) defines that the Junkies would do anything to get drugs such as beating up innocent by standards. A metaphor statement “Me on king kong standin’ on my back” (Stanza 6, Line 9) is a term used for heroin addicts. Except, others used monkey on their backs, but the speaker of the poem used “king kong”. He used that term to stress out how huge the problem was and by representing, that it was difficult for him quit the use of heroin. The thoughts of the projects being dangerous were underestimated. Other distances such as the subways, were likewise as horrible. As for the subways conditions were, “They push that…
Savior was mocked, tormented , and hung on a cross where he took his last breath. In order for our sins to be forgiven, our savior endured excruciating pain and torture, which we must not take for granted. Though graphic we must be informed of the agony our Savior experienced in order for us to be saved. The day of his crucifixion Jesus was stripped of his clothing and his hands tied to a post above his head. Using a flagrum, which is a short whip consisting of several heavy, leather thongs, the whip…

A form of slang where only specific people or group understands clear and precise words used while others see it abstract and vague, because they are unfamiliar with the language used , is jargon. This idea happens all the time specially in teens ; teens use jargon many of the times around friends when their parents are around in order to communicate with their friends without parents understanding what they are saying to each other. Jargon is not intentionally all the time, other times it happens…

Using the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) can help estimate the expected rate of return for DIS common stock. The formula used to calculate this is Kc = Rf + beta x ( Km - Rf ), Rf would be the risk free rate of return, Km is the expected return and beta is used to measure volatility (moneychimp.com). When calculating DIS rate of return, using the 10 year treasury yield as reported on August 16, 2011 is 2.23%, beta at 1.22 and expected return at 9% the…

speaking people often speak generalized language somehow the use of slang words I feel slang words are used in a shorter term and has become more common between friends, groups, social media (face book and twitter) from what I have seen. Another use for slang words can be generally a fun way others communicate with one another or getting straight to the point. Although others have a language heard or used of their own, I will say some slang words can be cruel and offensive, however, the words listed are…

For the second and third weeks of the experiment, catalytic hydrogenation was to be performed on the chalcone synthesized in the first week.
