Wednesday the 17th of October was a long and disappointing day for me. This was the day I decided to go to the museum and look for an artwork to write on; I would never forget how enthusiastic I was when I heard of this project but after exploring the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts and seeing no piece of art that captured me, I lost some of this excitement. Finally, I left the LHUCA for the Texas tech museum. At the Texas tech museum, the first pieces I saw were very captivating and they brought back my enthusiasm, I toured the museum for a while and finally encountered The Three Es.. When I first saw The Three Es I ran away from it. I thought the fox was going to attack me. After being scared, I walked back to the taxidermy. I was amazed by how real it looked. This made me interested in knowing more about this piece of art and my search on what to write on was over. The Three Es is taxidermy in the Texas Tech Museum; which is when dead animals are stuffed, preserved and finally kept in a museum. Basically, The Three Es is the texidermy of 7 animals, which includes a coyote, a muskrat, a fox, a burrowing owl, Ruddy Duck, Canada goose, And a White-tailed deer. What attracted me to this particular work is how real it looks; It’s a work that make the viewer forget that they are in a museum and not a zoo for a spilt second The fox in The Three Es looks as though it is motion; the legs were all in different places and it looked as if it was running to get you. The funniest thing about this is the position of the artwork; it is placed at the beginning of a room in the middle of the museum, it is placed in such a way that the animals especially the fox just creeps up on you as enter the room. The burrowing owl another scary animal, it is made to communicate with the audience using its eyes, the eyes pierce into anyone who comes close enough. The neck is titled backwards, the wings not resting on the back, like in before takeoff, and one leg slightly lifted off the ground creating an illusion that it is going to fly off and attack the viewer at any time. The white tailed deer are peaceful and quiet animals and this is illustrated in this artwork. It had its ears up to…
Sir Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” There has to be an even amount of cowardice and courage to maintain a balance otherwise the world wouldn’t mature. Which ties honesty and conformity together to relate to either cowardice or courage. Honesty can be interpreted as a courageous trait and conformity as a cowardice trait.

their own purpose separate from your own does not mean that they are the sole source of the turmoil and violence, if there is one to blame for these actions then I think that we must all look at ourselves to see what has become of us.
I found many things that I agree with in the statement given to congress last session by Mr. Robert Murray. I felt that he came across as interested in what was best for us all, as well as making sure to put the needs of the whole community above the needs of just a…

Nothing Left Behind
What prompted me to select this topic is an article that I read online just within the past couple of weeks regarding a nurse’s suicide as a consequence of a medical error. Not only has this provided me with the topic for discussion of a situation occurring in health care facilities, but it allows for discussion and reinforcement of one of our topics this week…
Defamation in Los Angeles, Josh received the most iconic award ever.
Hutcherson may have played the role of a son to two lesbian mothers in the film, "The Kids are All Right," but it didn't take much of convincing for Josh to play the part genuinely. In real life, Josh was raised by a mother who had long been a supporter of gay and lesbian rights.
"My mom has always been a big advocate, especially in the gay, lesbian, transsexual and bisexual community so for me it's always been a part of my soul," shared…

from each other. It even says later in the section, “Categories obscure similarities even as they help us make distinctions” (Brontë 458). We should try to keep in the back of our minds that categories, while useful in showing differences between things, sometimes overlap and share similarities.
I found Lyn Pykett’s feminist criticism to be very persuasive. I liked her part at the beginning about older Catherine’s different names and that “Catherine Heathcliff remains an unfulfilled possibility…
