Rachel Emasu
She stood still in the dark cold creepy forest, blood gashing out of her freshly cut wounds, her body trembling of its own accord as the cold winter winds bit into her naked flesh. She had grown accustomed to sleeping in the nude, not out of choice but due to the abject poverty she was born into, all she owned was a little old red dress that barely covered her rounded bottoms and left her tiny nipples exposed and once white knickers now browed with age. It was no wonder that she was now stranded in the cold murky forest naked! Her flee ridden body, her only shield against the cold winter night. Sera blinked
Once …twice…thrice, as her tear stricken eyes grew accustomed to the dark, trees that’s all that was there to see, that’s all she hoped to see. They were her only source of comfort, hope, her refuge. They were her home.

With shaky hands, Sera groped around looking for something, anything to hide her wrenched shameful nakedness. Even covered by the starless nights that engulf the deep lifeless forest she could still envision the ugliness that was her body. The tiny sheet that she had wrapped around her bruised and battered body earlier that night was now lying a few feet from her, barely recognizable, it reeked of vomit, rum, tobacco and blood, his and hers. She couldn’t bring herself to touch it, not just yet.
A warm thick fowl smelling liquid run down her thighs. Puzzled and frightened , Sera run her cold frost bitten fingers slowly betwixt her inner legs and followed the trail to the warm pulse beating between her legs and slowly brought it up to her nose, her fingers, they smelt of blood, blood and cum, his cum?
“Nooo…,’’ Sera screamed Before breaking into a cold sweat, she felt the bile rise up her throat and saturate in her mouth till she could test it on her tongue. Surely this couldn’t be her fate, anything but…...

Wandering soon after, Kimimaro was eventually found by Orochimaru, and recruited as one of his most loyal ninja.[2][3] Kimimaro and Jūgo. Under Orochimaru, Kimimaro found purpose in his life as he desired to ensure the continuation of his master's dreams and ambitions. Though Orochimaru took him under his wing to be one of his future hosts, Kimimaro did not mind such a fate if it meant being of aid to his master. Soon after, Kimimaro met Jūgo, a berserker whom Kimimaro felt a kindred spirit with. Kimimaro's friendship with Jūgo led to the events that resulted with him being branded by the cursed seal that Orochimaru developed from his research on Jūgo, whom Kimimaro talked into being experimented on in hopes that it would help him. With his new-found powers, Kimimaro defeated all four members of the Sound Four single-handed to be inducted into the renamed Sound Five. However, before his appearance in the storyline, Kimimaro became afflicted by an unknown disease that destroyed what remaining worth he was to Orochimaru.

My Preacher

...God. We have been endowed with the power to obey or even to disobey. (Deut. 30:19) “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live…” If it is our willful choice to disobey, curses will inevitably follow. (Deutoronomy 28:15-22) “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me. The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall......

Preface This isn’t really a teacher’s manual, not, at least, in the sense of a catechism of questions and correct answers and interpretations. Because the questions provided after each selection in Rereading America are meant to stimulate dialogue and debate — to generate rather than terminate discourse — they rarely lend themselves to a single appropriate response. So, while we’ll try to clarify what we had in mind when framing a few of the knottier questions, we won’t be offering you a list of “right” answers. Instead, regard this manual as your personal support group. Since the publication of the first edition, we’ve had the chance to learn from the experiences of hundreds of instructors nationwide, and we’d like to use this manual as a forum where we can share some of their concerns, suggestions, experiments, and hints.

...excitement that swirls around in your mind when you think of the ancient pyramids, pharaohs, and the possibility of finding mountains of buried gold. That same excitement is coupled with the gloomy thought of be hexed with the “mummy’s curse” when you think of the day King Tutankhamen, “King Tut”, and his ancient tomb where uncovered November 26, 1922. In Ancient Egypt, pyramids were built from the Old Kingdom to the Middle Kingdom to house the bodies of their mummified queens and pharaohs; along with gold, food, and treasures. These tombs at times where plugged with large pieces of granite to block entry, disguised to throw off grave robbers, masked with secret passageways, and supposedly cursed to bring death to those who entered. King Tut’s tomb was believed to be cursed when its financer, Lord Carnarvon, died two months after the opening of the tomb, along with his dog howling to the moon and falling immediately dead right after.One claim on (1997-2012) says chief archeologist, Howard Carter, hid a tablet with the curse inscribed on it, while it also is recorded that the fatal curse "death will come on swift pinions to those who disturb the rest of the Pharaoh" (Dowdey, 2014) to be on the outside of tomb door – so it seems it is really up to the believer to formulate your own opinion on the curse, and where it began. All of the mystery and skepticism leads curious minds to attempt to find the truth, and “in 1999 a German microbiologist,......

Christian Allegory Inrime of the Ancient Mariner

...Christian Allegory in Rime of the Ancient Mariner Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Rime of an Ancient Mariner" is a lyrical ballad that seems to be more like a miniscule adventurous story. However, not only it is a ballad depicting the adventure of an old mariner who is cursed for the entirety of his life because he kills an albatross; even deeper than that, it is also a religious allegory that conveys a plethora of themes pertaining to Christianity. On one hand, if a person were to read "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" simply as a tale at sea, the poem stands to be remarkable because of its rhyme of simplicity and easy flow. On the other hand, if one reads much deeper into the intricate details, symbolism, themes, and literary aspects, Coleridge will have produced a masterpiece in their eyes. Furthermore, a multitude of critics agree that there are several connotations that signify religion in this ballad; however, very few agree upon it being an allegory that mainly reflects the specific ideology of Christianity. Christianity preaches that life is basically a test by which we either pass and go to heaven, or fail and go to hell. Also, the human body is a victim of the human thought and action, which is represented by the soul. Therefore, in relation to the ballad, we can refer to the ship as the human body and the Mariner who steers the ship and leads it to destruction as the human soul. This ship led by the Mariner goes through a trial of storm and winds, but fails......

Claudius Soliloquy Analysis

...WIth the first line in his soliloquy, Claudius’s grieves over the fact he has murdered his brother--the king: “O, my offence is rank, it smells to heaven”(3.3 40). With the use of hyperbole, Claudius’s is able to emphasize his sin is so foul that it can even be smelled from “heaven”. The “rank” he has stolen as king is an “offense”, which also emphasizes Claudius’s regret over killing the king. This is unusual for Claudius’s as he is suppose hide under the facade of a person who has killed the king--a insensitive character who only cares for power. Claudius’s feels cursed by his atrocity, that God has struck him: “It hath the primal eldest curse upon’t”(3.3 41). With this allusion to the Biblical tale of cain, cursed by God for murdering his brother, Shakespeare shows Claudius’s deep anxiety. Claudius’s wants to be forgiven for his sin and seeks forgiveness by attempting to pray. He then laments “What if this cursed hand//Were thicker than itself with brother's blood,//Is there not rain enough in the sweet heavens//To wash it white as snow? Whereto serves mercy”(3.3 46-50). Shakespeare uses the metaphor of comparing the blood of King Hamlet to water, a historical symbol of cleansing. Claudius shows that he is remorseful for the murder of King Hamlet, but only because he no longer wants to bear the weight of his sins and risk them coming to light. Despite Claudius’s former lack of distress, Claudius’s does wish to be freed from the weighty burden of his sin. However,......

Nahusa and Shudra Disputes in Ambedkar's Essay

... The story of Trishanku,narrated in Ramayana is an immediate instance of the dispute between the Brahmins and the Kshatriyas. This contention is particularly on the third point that is the right of the Brahmins only to officite at the sacrifice. King Trishanku wanted to perform a sacrifice by which he would go bodily to heaven but Vasishtha, the brahmin rishi says that it was impossible. Then Trishanku sought the help of the hundred sons of Vasishtha who very angrily dismissed the request . Then Trishanku was seeking others’ help and was cursed by them to become a Chandala, the lowest caste in the caste hierarchy or rather an outcaste. Trishanku later resorted to Vishvamitra, the Kshatriya, who promised to perform the sacrifice on his behalf. Vasishtha and his hundred sons were very angry on hearimg about the sacrifice, as a Kshatriya is officiating a priest for a Chandala. Their anger incensed Vishvamitra who cursed Vasistha’s sons to be reduced to ashes and reborn as degraded outcastes(mritapah), and Vasisgtha to become a ‘Nishada’(hunter, another low caste). In the second section of the essay “Brahmin versus Shudras” Ambedkar describes the story of Nahusha. The story concerned Nahusha told both in ‘Vanaparvan’ and ‘Udyogaparvan’ in the Mahabharata. After the slaughter of the demon Vritra, Indra, the king of the gods, hid himself in the waters. So, Nahusha was requested to become the king of Heaven, which he subsequently became. Then he wanted......

...4141- 4141--- Cherished and Cursed:Towarda Social History of The Catcher in the Rye STEPHEN J. WHITFIELD THE plot is brief:in 1949 or perhaps 1950, over the course of three days during the Christmas season, a sixteen-yearold takes a picaresque journey to his New YorkCity home from the third private school to expel him.

A heavy smoker, Holden Caulfield claims to be already six feet, two inches tall and to have wisps of grey hair; and he wonders what happens to the ducks when the ponds freeze in winter. The novel was published on 16 July 1951, sold for $3.00, and was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection.

Blindness and Insight

...bring a breed of children into the light no man can bear to see- you will kill your father,the one who gave you life!" (1.1.873-875) Oedipus is in denial of this knowledge, not only is he ignorant now but also behaving arrogantly. Oedipus is approached by Teiresias, a frail, blind prophet who says that Oedipus is the “cursed polluter of this land.” Oedipus is horrified by this accusation and mocks Tiresias, who retaliates by saying, "so you mock my blindness? let me tell you this. you with your precious eyes, you're blind to the corruption of your life, to the house you live in, those you live with-- who are your parents? Do you know? All unknowing you are the scourge of your own flesh and blood...." (1.1.468-478). At the beginning of the play the audience is informed that Oedipus has murdered his father and married his mother. Throughout the play, we observe how Oedipus is completely oblivious to this knowledge and how he comes to the realization of the truth. When Oedipus gains insight of his life he exclaims, "O god-all come true, all burst to light! O light-now let me look my last on you! I stand revealed at last-cursed in my birth, cursed in marriage, cursed in the lives I cut down with these hands!" (1.1.1307). Upon learning that he has killed his father and married his mother, Oedipus gouges out his eyes and makes himself blind. He banishes himself, where he probably died alone in the woods with no human interaction and no eyesight to find his way or protect himself.......

The Mummy Historical Movie Review

...mummified alive and cursed for all eternity in Hamunaptra, the city of the dead. Thousands of years pass, and in the 1920’s a soldier of the French Foreign Legion named Rick O’Connell meets a librarian and aspiring Egyptologist named Evelyn, and joins her and her brother on a quest to find Hamunaptra, a lost Ancient Egyptian city which is said to have numerous amounts of hidden treasure. Instead of finding treasure though, they accidently reawaken the mummy of Imhotep, who if brought back to life, will “arise a walking disease”, unleash the ten plagues of Egypt, become invincible, and cause mass destruction. First, I will highlight the historical inaccuracies of the characters shown in this movie. The main villain in The Mummy is Imhotep. In the beginning of the movie, Imhotep is shown to be the High Priest under the rule of Pharaoh Seti I. In actuality, Imhotep was an Egyptian polymath who served under the Third Dynasty Pharaoh Djoser as a chancellor and as the high priest of the sun god Ra. Imhotep was the architect of the Djoser step-pyramids, and was an important figure in Ancient Egyptian medicine. Imhotep lived during the Old Kingdom Third Dynasty of Ancient Egypt, so there is no way he could have served under Pharaoh Seti I, who was not born yet. Seti I was the second ruler of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt, during the period of the New Kingdom. In the movie, Imhotep is shown to be mummified alive with flesh eating scarab beetles, is cursed and sentenced to......

...lungs which causes the individual to have problems breathing and slowly they will die. One soldier is too late in putting on his mask. Owen describes the symptoms shown by this man as the poison slowly kills him. The tone of the poem is very harsh because of the choice of words and how they are used. Owen gives the reader graphic descriptions and speaks in a very direct and straightforward way. He uses words that convey ugliness, fear and pain. For example, he says “coughing like hags”, “cursed through sludge” , “limped on, blood-shod”, “floundering like a man in fire or lime” [lime here means quicklime, a corrosive substance], “guttering, choking, drowning”, “white eyes writhing”, “blood come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs”, and “vile, incurable sores”. Owen wants the reader to be surprised at the reality. He is not afraid to show his own feelings through the use of emotional words such as “cursed”, “obscene”, “bitter”, “vile”. In the line “Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,” he again contrasts reality with the idealistic way in which war has been presented, when soldiers are pictured as singing while marching proudly to their glorious deaths. Owen also uses many poetic devices: Metaphors, similes, and alteration. A good example of a metaphor is when he says, “drunk with fatigue.” At the start of the poem, the soldiers are described as old and crippled, “Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, / Knock-kneed, coughing like hags”. This......

While I was being held, illegally, the medical brains of the Allegheny County Jail found out that I was cleared of all charges so they tried to rush me into surgery the morning I was to be released! I knew that if I got the surgery done, that I would not have been able to go home until I was medically cleared. In other words, if I would have had the surgery, even though I would have been a “so-called free man”, I still would have had to remain in jail until I was medically cleared to leave. Knowing surgery can’t be done if you eat, I told the guards in the intake that I had eaten. The surgery was canceled. I was released later that day.
