I. INTRODUCTION
To become a princess is part of almost every girl’s dream. Ever since the story of Cinderella, Snow White, and other fictional princesses have been told, many hoped of having the same destiny as they had. Some wish to wear a pretty tiara embedded with precious jewels, others just want to find and marry Prince Charming. The feeling of royalty at your feet would be so good to be true.
A shy girl named Diana Spencer was given the opportunity to become a Princess of the English Monarchy. She had her very own tiara and married a handsome prince, just like in fairy tales. The beautiful young lady captured hearts around the world for her warm kindness and dedication towards the people. She became one of the world’s most glamorous and famous figures. Everyone thought that she was the luckiest and happiest girl living. But the ending of Princess Diana’s story didn’t turn out quite as expected, nor had a “happy ever after”. II. BODY
Diana Frances Spencer was born on July 1, 1961 at Park House, the home that her parents rented on Queen Elizabeth II’s state at Sandringham and where her childhood playmates were the queen’s younger sons, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. She was the youngest daughter of Edward John Spencer and Frances Ruth Burke Roche, the Viscount and Viscountess Althorp (Encyclopedia Britannica). Her father had been a royal equerry for both King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II, making them close to the royal family (BBC). Unfortunately, Diana’s parents split up when she was six. Still, that didn’t stop her in becoming Lady Diana Spencer when her father earned the title Earl Spencer (Encyclopedia Britannica). Lady Diana was sent to boarding school, eventually attending West Health Public School in Kent where she excelled at sports, particularly swimming (BBC). She worked in London after studying; first as a nanny, then as an assistant…...

A Rose for Emily

...|A Rose For Emily | | Like so many American writers, Faulkner found himself again and again writing short stories, some of which are considered| |as equally important as his best novels. Good as his short stories are, they seem always at the threshold of being absorbed into| |the Yoknapatawpha saga — that legendary matrix which is Faulkner’s real achievement. However, for a beginner of Faulkner | |scholarship, his short stories may well be an easy start. “A Rose for Emily” is Faulkner’s first short story published in 1930. | |Set in the town of Jefferson in Yoknopatawpha, the story focuses on Emily Grierson, an eccentric spinster who refuses to accept | |the passage of time, or the inevitable change and loss that accompanies it. Simple as it is in plot, the story is pregnant with | |meaning. As a descendent of the Southern aristocracy, Emily is typical of those in Faulkner’s Yoknapatwapha stories who are the | |symbols of the Old South but the prisoners of the past. In this story, Faulkner makes best use of the Gothic devices in | |narration, and, the deformed personality and abnormality Emily demonstrates in her relationship with her sweetheart is | |dramatized in such a way that we feel shocked and thrilled as we read along. | |In this story, Faulkner’s strong condemnation......

A Rose

...“A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner (1930) I WHEN Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at least ten years. It was a big, squarish frame house that had once been white, decorated with cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies in the heavily lightsome style of the seventies, set on what had once been our most select street. But garages and cotton gins had encroached and obliterated even the august names of that neighborhood; only Miss Emily's house was left, lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps-an eyesore among eyesores. And now Miss Emily had gone to join the representatives of those august names where they lay in the cedar-bemused cemetery among the ranked and anonymous graves of Union and Confederate soldiers who fell at the battle of Jefferson. Alive, Miss Emily had been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town, dating from that day in 1894 when Colonel Sartoris, the mayor--he who fathered the edict that no Negro woman should appear on the streets without an apron-remitted her taxes, the dispensation dating from the death of her father on into perpetuity. Not that Miss Emily would have accepted charity. Colonel Sartoris invented an involved tale...

... Ecuadorian Roses William Hardy International Business Professor Alexia Priest Post University July 6, 2013 INTRODUCTION On special occasions or just because, we send rose to our loved ones, have you ever wonder where those roses came from? Did they come from the United States or from another country? What is the process for growing these beautiful flowers that so many people love? This research will answer many of those questions. What is the basis of Ecuador’s comparative advantage in the production of roses? Ecuador has a comparative advantage when it comes to the production of roses. Ecuador not only has plenty of workers to help cut the rose stems at the farm, but also the landscape and climate in Ecuador is beneficial to the growth. The bushes are protected by 20-foot-high canopies of plastic sheeting. The combination of intense sunlight, fertile volcanic soil, an equatorial location, and high altitude makes for ideal growing conditions, allowing roses to flower almost year-round. This farmland produces prime roses. They have he heads and unusually vibrant colors, including ten different reds, from bleeding heart crimson to rosy lover’s blush. This helps Ecuador’s because since they have such a great production of roses they are able to sell them for premium prices in stores from New York to London. Most Ecuadorean roses are sold in the United States or Europe. Who in these countries benefits from the importation of Ecuadorean roses, and how do they benefit? Who...

...A Rose by Any Other Name Case Study Case One The Dilemma: Rose Partyware has been working towards creating its own brand of party ware supplies to give it a competitive edge in an industry of generic party supply manufacturers. Recently, Rose Partyware was presented with the opportunity to produce a private-label brand of party goods. This alternative would provide Rose with a stable revenue source as well as opportunities to create private-labels for other retailers. However, pursuing this option would drain Rose’s resources and prevent them from launching their own branded goods. Additionally private-labels would make Rose into a manufacturer-only role and limit its long-term prospects, but having its own brand is very costly to promote and comes with many short-term risks. Possible Solutions: 1. Proceed with Rose Partyware branded party supplies.   * Retain loyalty of small independent retailers (35% of sales)   * Brand advantage in party supplies versus other generic suppliers   * Positive long-term returns   * Control over pricing, branding, and distribution of goods   * Short-term technological advantage 2. Pursue manufacturing private-label goods for retailers.   * Retain largest Rose customer (20% of sales)   * Supplier of choice in private-label manufacturing   * Lowest short-term risk   * Cheapest option in terms of change to company structure & spending The Decision: If I were in Tom Roses’ position I would choose to proceed with Rose......

...Section: HBR CASE STUDY Rose Partyware's largest retail customer has decided to create a private-label line of party goods-and wants Rose to manufacture it. Should Rose put its efforts behind its own brand instead? TOM ROSE hated to go to a meeting with ice cream on his pants. But Rose Partyware's after-school party-a monthly gesture of goodwill to the local community and, not incidentally, a field trial for products the company was developing- had confirmed his suspicions that one of the new ice-cream bowls was just too shallow. The five-year-old who had demonstrated that fact had been sitting right next to him. So here he was getting ready to listen to a major presentation, with paper towels in his hands. "Go ahead, Cassie," Tom said to his marketing director. "It'll dry or harden--or something. Thankfully, it's my last meeting of the day!" He could tell that Cassie Martin was excited about the presentation she was going to make to the top management team. Tom had personally recruited her about a year ago to spearhead the biggest strategic initiative in Rose's history: the launch of a branded line of party ware. In fact, it was the first time a company in the party goods industry had contemplated a branding effort, at least in the 30 years Rose had been in business. Party Lines Rose manufactured a wide variety of paper goods- plates, bowls, cups, napkins, tablecloths, favors, crepe-paper streamers, and so forth- for birthday and holiday parties and other social...

The Rose That Was

...Ricardo Moss Eng. 113-A Ms. Jennings Tupac Shakur, the Rose That Was “The Rose That Grew from Concrete,” a poem by the late Tupac Shakur, is a poem that parallels Tupac’s life from early childhood until his death and beyond. The concrete representing the struggles and hardships that were a part of Tupac’s earlier days. The rose represents Tupac and his determination to make something of himself against all odds. Tupac Shakur, born Lesane Parrish Crooks on June 16, 1971, spent the majority of his youth in New York City where he was born. In Tupac’s poem the concrete symbolizes his early childhood and the struggles that were a part of growing up. Tupac’s father was absent for most of his life, according to the (urbandictionary.com). Tupac did not meet his biological father, Billy (William) Garland, until after he was shot five times on November 30, 1994, in New York City. Tupac would eventually incorporate the “thug life” persona in his life which would lead Tupac on a downward spiral of misfortunes. Mikal Gilmore, in Rolling Stones article characterizes Tupac as “perhaps the most despised man in America.” Gilmore goes on to describe the late rapper’s music as being merciless and condemned by some of Americas most powerful people (Glimore102-104). Tupac would eventually end up in jail for sexual assault which would not be his last brush with the law. Between Tupac’s vision of what the concrete symbolizes and what was instilled in him from a mother and step father......

Briar Rose

...How has Jane Yolen made use of the features of a fairytale to explore the themes in Briar Rose? Jane Yolen’s novel Briar Rose (1992) combines enchanting fairy tale elements with realistic historical attributes to create an engaging representation of personal discovery/the horrors that defined the holocaust/OR answer Q. Yolen unfolds her narrative through multiple narrative layers and literary techniques to convey the central ideas of human determination and resilience, and the significance of memory to bring back to life an anonymous past. Through the themes and literary techniques that Yolen utilises, the parallels of Briar Rose to a fairy tale are developed into a family history. Human resilience and the ability to rise above suffering is a significant notion that Yolen powerfully acknowledges in Briar Rose, which also establishes a parallel to the common fairy tale element of good triumphing over evil. This is significantly brought forward through Josef’s vivid illustration of the ugly horrors of war he experienced as a partisan during World War II. Unlike Gemma’s fairy tale, Potocki’s eloquent story in the novel is sustained and uninterrupted, adding a sense of authenticity to his narration and providing a sense of realism to the disturbing and frightening experiences that he and Gemma had survived. It is an honest recollection that does not glorify – portraying the partisans as “survivors, not heroes”, and provides detailed descriptions revolving around the Nazi...

The Secret of England's Greatness

...The Secret of England’s Greatness (Queen Victoria presenting a Bible in the audience chamber at Windsor, 1863) Thomas J Barker’s “The Secret of England’s Greatness” really captures the seemingly intertwined themes of sovereignty and divinity. The idea of sovereignty is depicted through the two cultural figures, which are central focuses of the painting. The Queen’s alluring white dress accentuated with the purple banner creates connotations of royalty and prestige. Equally, the garments that Barker has depicted on the Ambassador are atypical to the attire worn by Britons in this period. However they are by no means less significant. The Ambassador wears an animal skin cape, lavish jewellery, and fine linens; Barker has localised England’s prestige to the Ambassador to indicate to the viewer that he is clearly of importance. This then raises the question about the fact that this is an Ambassador, as opposed to the actual leader. One could then argue that the garments worn represent the King. This then sparks the question of what the context was that disallowed the actual King to be there. Were there domestic problems he had to tend to? Was the Ambassador merely collecting “The Secret of England’s Greatness” as a means to resolve the greatness that they might had lacked? Divinity is also explored because of how the non-physical concept of “greatness” is presented as something religious– a Bible. Given the context of a vastly religious 19th century Britain, the Bible is......

...The first step in strategy implementation process is to define the actual strategy. The major strategy that the Rose Company is trying to pursue is to switch from a highly centralized type of manufacturing organization to a decentralized system, in which the general manager will coordinate activities at the actual production sight. The company decided to build a new plant, where it can implement new processes and methods. However, the major concern in this case is not strategy evaluation but its implementation. When implementing a defined strategy there are numerous considerations that must be taken into account by general manager. First of all, implementing strategy requires that the general manager become involved in assuring that both the broad and detailed functional policies reflect the strategy that is being pursued. In other words, which functional policies needed to be implemented to achieve the restructuring strategy in our case? Given the assignment to make a decentralized operation to function properly, James Pierce will be dealing with a set of changed relationships. Instead of reporting to their functional counterparts in the home office, the heads of the departments will be under the authority of the general plant manager. James Pierce will be responsible for the management and administration of all functions and personnel, except sales, at Jackson plant. Although, the new policies are in accordance with the current strategy, there is a potential threat of......

Rose for Emily

...Lawson 1 Courteneye Lawson Mrs. McCaster AP English 12 September 8, 2011 Gothic Elements in “A Rose for Emily” Novelist, William Faulkner, in his short story “A Rose for Emily” Illustrates several Southern Gothic Elements. This particular story has a moody and forbidding atmosphere. Throughout the short story Faulkner depicts images of a cold dark neighbor and a dilapidated mansion. Through these elements this creates a dark and ominous feeling throughout the story. The story begins describing the funeral of Miss Emily. Miss Emily and her family had once been the center of the town and now Miss Emily’s reputation had died right along with the rest of the old men and women of the town. The narrator explains that the men attended her funeral out of obligation while the women came because no one had seen the inside of her house in years. Miss. Emily lived a very shelter life. Miss Emily was always alone and eventually the neighborhood starts to make rude comments about her. They begin to connote her as” crazy” but she was really not use to living on her own and was still morning the lost of her father.

She lived in a neighborhood that once was the best neighborhood in town, now deserted. The only house that was left was the one of Miss Emily.......

...stipules; the leaflets usually have a serrated margin, and often a few small prickles on the underside of the stem. Most roses are deciduous but a few (particularly from South east Asia) are evergreen or nearly so. The hybrid garden rose "Amber Flush" The flowers of most species have five petals, with the exception of Rosa sericea, which usually has only four. Each petal is divided into two distinct lobes and is usually white or pink, though in a few species yellow or red. Beneath the petals are five sepals (or in the case of some Rosa sericea, four). These may be long enough to be visible when viewed from above and appear as green points alternating with the rounded petals. There are multiple superior ovaries that develop into achenes.[4] Roses are insect-pollinated in nature. The aggregate fruit of the rose is a berry-like structure called a rose hip. Many of the domestic cultivars do not produce hips, as the flowers are so tightly petalled that they do not provide access for pollination. The hips of most species are red, but a few (e.g. Rosa pimpinellifolia) have dark purple to black hips. Each hip comprises an outer fleshy layer, the hypanthium, which contains 5–160 "seeds" (technically dry single-seeded fruits called achenes) embedded in a matrix of fine, but stiff, hairs. Rose hips of some species, especially the dog rose (Rosa canina) and rugosa rose (Rosa rugosa), are very rich in vitamin C, among the richest sources of any plant. The hips are eaten by......
