...Shalonda Mitchell Professor: Dr. Paul Hackman ENG 215 Research and Writing January 15, 2013 My first experience with persuasive writing was in the fifth grade. I had to write a persuasive letter to the school principal, in an attempt to convince her that I should be chosen to represent Westside Elementary School’s fifth grade class at the annual Math Bee. Of the four fifth grade classes; myself and two other fifth grade students were chosen due to our high scores on the statewide math test. I saw this as an opportunity to finally represent my class because I have always loved to write; as well as, I really enjoyed math at that level. In my letter I chose to remind my principal how well prepared for class I am every day. Each day I showed up with all the items listed on my learning log. At the beginning of every school year each student was given a laminated learning log for their grade level. We were instructed to attach the learning logs to the front of our notebooks, as a reminder of what we should have when we arrive for school in the morning. Each day I came prepared with everything listed on the learning log. I also reminded my principal how polite and respectful I was to both she and my fellow classmates. I enjoyed school and I knew the importance of good behavior and respect. My parents would often remind me that what I did outside of the home reflects who they are and if I behaved poorly or in a disrespectful manner there would be consequences.......

...Student Name Professor Obermeier ENG 200 28 February 2001 He's Only Kidding, Right?: Warnings in Shakespeare's "Sonnet 95." William Shakespeare is the master of subtle humor and sexual puns. In his "Sonnet 95," a poem to a blond young man, both are seen while pointing out a couple of realities about sexual sin. He speaks directly to a young man whose physical beauty compensates for his lack of sexual morality. Shakespeare would like for this young man to realize that his handsomeness is the sole aspect of his person that prevents absolute disapproval of his behavior in other people, and he also wants him to be aware of the ultimate consequences of his actions. Through a clever use of diction, imagery, and meter in a typical Shakespearian format, Shakespeare warns his young friend of the risks involved with the overindulgence of sexual activity. In the first quatrain, Shakespeare presents the young man to the readers by contrasting his beauty and his character. He tells the young man that he renders "shame" (1) "sweet and lovely" (1). That is, he is much too handsome to be overshadowed by his questionable conduct. His "shame" may not be a dominant trait, but it does sneak around behind the scenes "like a canker" (2). A canker is a nasty internal ulceration, or growth; it is a flaw that cannot be seen in an otherwise beautiful object, such as a "fragrant rose" (2). This flaw in the young man, sexual vice, may "spot"......

...Assignments MGT200. Business Basics Mgt 200. Business Basics Mgt 200 Assignment 4 One of the driving goals of entrepreneurs is to start up a company, and then take it public through an IPO (initial public offering). Is the prospect of realizing great gains by going public that feeds the venture capital frenzy. During the dot-com glory days, many companies with no revenues – indeed, with prospect of revenues in the foreseeable future – went public and consequently made their investors very rich. The Washington Post article provided below offers a story of a company that has just “gone private” after being public for a number of years. The story makes it clear that there is nothing automatically good about going public. In fact, for serious businesses, there can be important drawbacks. Read the article carefully, and then bring together your business wisdom to answer the following questions: 1. What was the driving force for Deltek going public in the first place? Was there merit in this logic? 2. What advantages did Deltek find in going public once it became a public company? What disadvantages did it face? 3. What distinguishes Deltek from the dot-com companies that rushed to go public? Why did those companies go public? Who gained? 4. Why did Deltek decide to leave the public arena and become a closely held corporation once again? Do you think its management made the right decision? Your response should be no longer than three pages (single spaced......

...The Effects of War and Peace on Foreign Aid Patricia Dean Strayer University SOC 200 Professor Gwendolyn.Royal-Smith May 5, 2014 Abstract This paper assess the positive and negative effects that peace and war, respectively, have on the distribution of foreign aid in the developing country Sierra Leone. Next I will analyze the specific actions that the leadership of the selected Sierra Leone has taken, through the use of its foreign aid from donor nations and international lending institutions, to relieve the severe problems caused by warfare. Lastly I will discuss whether or not the extension of foreign aid has successfully reduced poverty and the incidence of warfare in Sierra Leone. The country that I decided to write about is Sierra Leone because it is one of the developing country in West Africa. They had a ten year civil war that ended in 2002. In May 2002 Sierra Leone voted for a government that would rebuild and restore order to their country which laid in ruins. With peace came foreign aid experts (Book Reviews, 2006). The positives of this civil war is that Sierra Leone developing democracy that has made notable economic gains. It now contributes significantly to United Nations peacekeeping operations, including the UN Mission to Darfur (UNAMID). It also is emerging as one of the most stable countries in a volatile region. The government also has passed one of Africa’s toughest anti-corruption laws, made high-profile arrests, and secured......

...Personal Ethical Statement Corrie Robinson GEN/200 7/12/2014 LaTishia Wheaton MS/AJS Personal Ethical Statement My preferred ethical lens is results and reputation. People who have this lens are reported to listen to their intuition, and to determine the greater good for everyone’s character traits and virtues that will better serve the community. My blind spot is unrealistic role expectations. Meaning that I tend to not be accountable to those who depend on me as long as I have satisfied my own needs. This behavior leads to complacency, leaving problems unresolved in the long-term, and leaving people on their own fending for themselves. I also tend to rely too heavily on virtues associated with people’s roles in life forgetting that people are human and can make mistakes despite their role. According to my ethical lens, I show strength in free will and compassion. I contribute self-reliance and accountability to my environment. I am not afraid to pursue my passions. I also like to help and encourage the people that are around me to pursue their passion’s as well. According to my ethical lens, I also possess the ability to put myself in other people’s shoes and take an objective view of their personal lives and challenges while living my own life and fulfilling my personal responsibilities within my role. If I don not assure myself that everyone has free will, I run the risk of reducing my decisions off of narrow and financial......

...Women of the Depression Era Trista Winchell ENG/220 08-16-2015 Ashlei Woelk Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have grown up in a different time or era? Or how the circumstances we grow up around shape us, are personality and are qualities and morals. Think about it, how different lives would be? According to the (Forum on child and family statistics) our demographic background, family and social environment as well as our economic circumstances, physical environment and education, all play a role in shaping who we become, so it’s safe to say growing up in a different time or era, would shape our lives and personalities. This is something I see when I look at my grandparents, my grandmothers Mary and Margret. Both of these wonderful women have a lot in common in how they think, believe and see the world. All though they both grew up with a different demographic background, the same social and economic circumstances they endured, play a major part in who they became as women. Both of my grandmothers were born in the 1930’s in the middle of the great depression and times were hard, this was also a time when there were a lot of pre-conceived opinions about women and their place in society. This is no doubt why my grandmothers are such strong women. because of the time and circumstances they both grew up in, my grandmothers have a lot in common and they share a lot of the same characteristic traits, but they are their own persons with their own unique......

...Ways to fight against Welfare Fraud Joshua Eyler Eng/147 July 27, 2015 Elsie Walker Due to the overwhelming amount of welfare fraud that goes on across the United States, I’d like to share a few ways to help diminish this kind of fraud. Welfare fraud on any scale is wrong and something needs to be done about it being reduced. Some states have already put into affect mandatory drug testing, with other states to follow. This should help sift through the people who are breaking the law for one, and quite possibly committing fraud upon the welfare system. However, more could be done with random residential checks and cutting down the time they have to collect. Welfare fraud could be reduced by governing who is eligible for mandatory drug testing, home visits, and having shorter benefit collection periods. Mandatory drug testing should be implemented to be qualified for welfare assistance. There are just too many applicants who are under the influence of some kind of drug that they do not have a prescription for. (Pollack, n.d.) “Almost 20 percent of welfare recipients report recent use of some illicit drug during the year”. (para. 1) Drug testing would cut down on the applicants that use drugs on a daily basis, and also help eliminate a portion of the fraud. This is a route that all states should put into effect, and they should make penalties for those that break this rule. Another way to cut down on welfare fraud is to make unscheduled home......

Poverty both influence developed country, America and developing country, Mexico. In The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian and The Devil’s Highway, they both facing the poverty issue. Sherman Alexie is telling us about the Indian American living in a hard life and Luis Alberto Urrea is telling us about the poor Mexican people migrating to United States for gaining wealth. Both of the two stories meets the same problem which is poverty forcing them to make change. The path to success are tough and hard, both of them have to discard something for the cost. However, their ending are not the same. Sherman Alexie is telling us the real life of Indian American who still lives in the Indian reservation. For those people, their poverty are generational and inheritance. “Seriously, I know my mother and father had their dreams when they were kids. They dreamed about being something other than poor, but they never got the chance to be anything because nobody paid attention to their dreams” (Sherman Alexie 12). As Arnold talks about his parents living in poor, he is helpless and feeling despairing because he knew that the poverty has been an issue for the Indian American for many generations. To think about more deeply, another view of what Arnold......
