That’s it young lady, your grounded!No TV!No Computer!No Ipod!No Mobile Phone!”“But mum I can’t live without those things”If this conversation sounds familiar to you then you’ll know how it feels to thinkthat you are left with ‘nothing’.Well I believe that this is not entirely true.Good morning/afternoon Mrs Low and fellow classmates.The topic I have chosen to talk about is today’s youth ‘has it made’.I will be talking about 3 main points.#1- Today’s youth spends too much time with technology.#2- Choices.#3- They should consider themselves lucky.Point #1: Today’s youth spends too much time with technology.When you get home from school what do you do?Go over to your friend’s house and ride bikes until the sun goes down?Or come home, go straight to the TV or computer and stay on until your eyesstart to water.In the last 20 years technology has come very far and has become even morepopular to the youth of today.Instead of riding bikes, going for walks, getting fresh air or spending time withthe family they would rather waste the day on the computer, in front of the TVor having a phone stuck to their ear. Approx. 90% of youth use computers,59% of them are online.Some might call this an addiction. As technology grows, so does the addictionto use every new available piece. But do they rely on technology too much?Locked in a bedroom listening to an ipod all afternoon, sounds great doesn’tit? But day in, day out, how boring!With the world at their finger tips the youth of today have…
STAGE 1 ENGLISH
THIS JOURNAL BELONGS TO THOMAS MILLS.
Autumn, April 197, Sunday 17th 06:00 SHARP. It was a cold, crisp English morning. The crunching of the golden leaves that laid beneath my feet. The icy- cold breeze against my bare cheeks, the musky smell of wet dog fur. That’s what made me run. My legs were extended out in front of me, moving with their own mind, propelling one after another. I didn’t have time to concentrate on my breathing, my heart felt like it was going to burst…
Discuss Larkin’s Treatment of the Impact of Time on People’s Lives.
‘Afternoons’ is a poem in which Larkin focuses on a snapshot of life in what we would call a housing estate. He observes a group of mothers taking their children to the park one afternoon, and proceeds to comment on what he is observing, and relate that to life in general, as is typical of Larkin’s poetry. The very title of ‘Afternoons’ itself is interesting, as it invokes in the reader an immediate sense of time. This poem is…
Good afternoon class and Mrs Crothers. How do you think people feel when they are suffering a serious illness? People from experience of this say they felt depressed, worried and alone. How would you like to feel like this 24/7? Patients who are abandoned by their family or told there are no available treatments may feel euthanasia is the only solution. I feel euthanasia is wrong and should be banned worldwide.
Euthanasia is when a very sick person is assisted in taking their own life to relieve…
alongside it as it climbs a steep hill. From out of the great mists, a messenger on horseback appears and
asks to speak to the passenger Jarvis Lorry of Tellson’s Bank. The travelers react warily, fearing that
they have come upon a highwayman or robber. Mr. Lorry, however, recognizes the messenger’s voice

Public education in the United States did not include kindergarten as an element of the public school system in the early years. However, in the early eighteen hundreds a variety of churches, and other private organizations across the world offered kindergarten to underprivileged families. Kindergarten was normally held during the daily morning hours, and parent teacher communications were prepared to occupy the afternoon hours. The…
Bow down thine ear, O Lord, hear me - See the notes at Psalm 5:1. For I am poor and needy - This is the reason here assigned why God should hear him. It is not a plea of merit. It is not that there was any claim on God in the fact that he was a poor and needy man - a sinner helpless and dependent, or that it would be any injustice if God should not hear, for a sinner has no claim to favor; but it is that this was a condition in which the aid of God was needed, and in which it was proper or appropriate…

Most of Phillis Wheatley’s poetry consists of religion, death and the hardships and burdens blacks endured throughout…
