The Rocking-Horse Winner and The Garden-Party didn’t really hold my attention. I thought both stories had an interesting plot, but the rest of the read wasn’t captivating. I also thought that both of these short stories focused on completely different themes, but they were subtly told. The Rocking-Horse Winner had a negative tone to it. The main message I took away from this story was ‘don’t let obsession get the best of you.’ The mother, Hester, in D.H. Lawrence’s story was the one character I was particularly interested in. She had a husband and three children, but she did not, or could not, love them. I truly wanted to learn more about the mother, and her thoughts on the fact “that at the center of her heart was a hard little place that could not feel love, no, not for anybody (Lawrence, 169).” Her obsession with money, especially her lack of it, was a big issue in why she couldn’t focus her attention and care to anything or anyone else. She spent most of her time upset over the fact that her husband wasn’t lucky, which is why they had no money. This obsession with luck and money rubbed off on her son, Paul. The extreme adoration of money transferred over to Paul, to the point where he thought the house whispered, “There must be more money! There must be more money! (170).” As a result to please his mother and prove he in fact was lucky, he became consumed by the need to get more money for his mother. Obsession is ultimately what led to poor Paul’s death. The manic nature of this young boy was unsettling to me, and his death also
Week 6 Assignment
1. Regulation or law proposal. Be very specific in the wording.
The regulation that I would propose would be called the E Commerce Consumer Protection Act (ECCPA). It would be an international mandated law which would require all businesses that operate and do business with consumers to have a 3rd party entity handle all transactions which includes personal information. The highly specialized 3rd party entity would focus primarily on the security of all transactions…
analyze how communication in groups differs from individual communication. Are there unique challenges to communicating with groups? Provide examples
Communicating in groups is different than communicating with individuals. Some examples of common groups in the work place “are: work groups, committees and boards, and project teams” (Baack, 2012). When communicating in a group, you have to focus the way you choose to communicate based on multiple people rather than one (Baack, 2012). This makes…
Communities must give children with disabilities equal opportunities to participate in extracurricular athletics; if existing sports leagues don't meet the needs of those children then the community should be responsible for making a league to help accommodate all children with disabilities. Even if that means they must create additional athletic programs. Some advocates for children with disabilities have compared the move to title IX. That was established in 1972, which mandated…
BMI, Diet and Exercise Program
Professor: Erin Hetrick
By definition of BMI, Body Mass Index is a measurement representing the ratio of a person’s body weight to his or her height. The BMI describes the body weight relative to height, and it correlates strongly (in adults) with the total body fat content. A body mass index of less than 20 is considered to be underweight, while a body mass index between 20 and 25 is considered healthy. A body mass index in…

Week 6 Copyright Protection
The freedom of expression comes from section 2 of the Canadian charter of Rights and Freedom. It is protected under the section as a “fundamental freedom”. The freedom of speech is protected but it is not absolute. The government can under section One of the Charter restrict it within reasons as long as it can be justified. This can come into play when looking at copyright laws. A balance needs to be found in between this charter and copyright laws to make sure…
The purpose for segmenting a market is to allow your marketing-sales program to focus on the subset of prospects that are "most likely" to purchase you’re offering. If done properly this will help to insure the highest return for your marketing expenditures. Depending on whether you are selling your offering to individual consumers or a business, there are definite differences in what you will consider when defining market segments. The purpose with the thesis is to provide a framework for exemplifying…
For inclusion to be effective as intended, the first change that must be made with beginning teachers is their understanding of what inclusion is. As Koonce (2014) states “inclusion is about creating a society in which all children and their families feel welcomed and valued” (p. 191). I believe that most of the teacher preparation focuses on the special education element in inclusion, looking to instruct only on how to accommodate students with disabilities instead of developing skills that allow…
According to the United States Geological Society (USGS), a scientific agency of the United States, as much as 60 percent of the human body is water. If you think about it, we are kind of a walking lake with all the water than we have inside of us and it is that very water that is important, yet dangerous to us at all times.
If we do not have enough water in us, we can become dehydrated. If we take in too much water, we can kill ourselves as documented by Dr. Ben Kim on his blog when he stated…
