Rough Draft - The Cat and Dog (not sure yet) I remember how happy I was when lived on the farm as a child. I liked that the air smelled so fresh and how the animals all learned to bond and live with one another. Every day I would wake up to the familiar croak of the rooster, dress into my plaid overalls, brush my long black hair and start a new day; milking the cows, feeding the chickens, opening the gates for the goats to run through, and seeing our old German Sheppard lying on the front porch. For as long as I can remember, that old dog had always chased the goats up the hill where the grass was greenest and where the sun was shining brightest. After a few weeks, our nice family cat gave birth to a kitten; it was a small ginger cat with bright orange frizzy fur, small green eyes. This kitten looked cute except for its mouth because it was curved into a snarl with a row of sharp tiny teeth and it was a troublemaker from the first day; it ran around the house, scratching the couch, wrecking the curtains, and it would never listen to us when we called its name. Even my pet goldfish was eaten by it! One day my dad had enough of it and said: "This cat cannot live in the house anymore! Leave it on the front porch!" I agreed and left it to live on the front porch. To everyone's surprise, the cat started pestering our old dog. It would scratch the dog with its sharp claws and bite with its sharp paws when it was lying on the veranda under the sun. It pestered the dog day and night, now and then, never stopping. It seemed like the cat hated the dog and wanted it to get in big trouble. The angered dog would always try to chase it up the hill but the cat was too fast for the old aged dog. The cat would climb up to the lowest branch on the old oak tree and just stare down at the German Sheppard as if it was mocking it. The dog tried to climb up but it wasn't possible for him to catch the cunning cat. Time passed by and the cat would always seem to get away with it when it pestered the dog, because the dog would never really fight back. Soon, our old dog started sleeping more and more, and it was too tired to move anymore. It lost interest in everything; it stopped chasing the goats, it stopped begging us for food and most importantly, it stopped communicating with us. A month passed before the dog died of old age. I remember that my parents were devastated because they have been with it since it was a puppy. My dad kept saying: "He was such a good dog. My job has been a lot easier because of him and no dog will ever be able to replace him!" My mother wouldn't talk about her feelings with us but we all knew it was hard for her to accept the fact that our dog died. Although it was a painful experience for us, we soon moved on and got a new German Sheppard to…
stereotypes that can make people lose hope. The interview means to me that we have to build a new movement that ends mass incarceration and the history of racial caste in America.
After reading The New Jim Crow I learned that a new system of racial control has taken over the United States. I also learned that people of color are targeted at a young age for minor offenses. In the United States today we have a new racial caste system, meaning that we have a system of laws and policies. These laws and policies…
The Great Cat Massacre
The masters family believed that they had been be-witched and ordered their apprentices to rid of all the cats, they dumped sack-loads of half-dead cats into the courtyard and pronounced them guilty and read them their rights. (mental picture, so funny)
It is so funny how bad fortune is automatically related to witchcraft, seems barbarous and the opposite of the Enlightenment.
How is beating a cat half to death funny, they are helpless animals.
The two apprentices…

The Romantic era, influenced by ideas set forth by the Sturm und Drang movement of theprevious century and acting as a resolution of sorts to the French revolution, brought new meaning and motivations to the art forms of the 19th century. With this movement, adherences to classical forms were questioned and dramatic content alongside music took a major seat, seeking to bring a greater sense of expression to the relative rigidness…
sense differs from culture to culture and era to era. He does point out an observation from study of folk tales across Europe. He finds that Italian and French folk tales are more playful, full of trickstes who jest and humble the powerful; whereas German folk tales are more dark and more often violent. We are immediately struck by the weakness of Darnton's work, which is the issue of sampling. Does he select a random sample of such tales, or all tales, or just the ones he wishes to discuss? I found…

plify their behaviors.
Spiegelman uses cats and mice as representations of the Germans and Jews during the Holocaust
in order to assist the reader in understanding their mentalities and personality traits.
The Germans were portrayed as cats because they are powerful, malicious, and are prone
to manipulate their prey or in this case, the Jews. For example, when the German guard was
toying with Mandelbaum. Mandelbaum is on the walk to work when a German guard grabs his
cap away and tells him to go and get it…
city of dreams..”. Allen shows a whole new aspect of the city one that Quarts doesn't grasp, “New york has been portrayed on the screen as a traumatized city overwhelmed by drug dealers, prostitutes and street criminals, permeated with garbage-laden streets and graffiti scarred buildings and with a jarring symphony of sirens and alarms constantly playing as an accompaniment in the background. Alvy overlooks the garbage, rats, and abandoned buildings of New York City in the 1970's and tries to make…
