My name is john Oliver, you probably have heard people whining and whining about the topic I am about to talk about.
First let me start by talking about a recent experience to let you understand the matter more. It was a simple Sunday morning, I had a trip planned to the optometrist do get my daughters eyes checked for the first time. The clinic was nothing out of the world fancy or anything really special. The doctor was nice and friendly the real surprise was the hospital bill. The most you can expect for an eye check-up at an optometrist to be no more that a $50, but that was where I was wrong the bill and read $200, not sure why the bill was so high I asked the nurse that she might have mixed the invoice with someone else’s but she showed the name on it, never the less it was my daughter’s name. I had no choice but to pay. But the following week I couldn’t get the incident out of my head. Why was American healthcare so expensive?

After extensive research and chatting on blogs regarding the subject. I concluded that the health care industry in the US is a 3$trillion-dollar industry even though health care in the US cost twice as much anywhere else in this world.

If you have health insurance, you may think your safe but it doesn’t matter because someone else is paying the bill. You’d be wrong. This country’s exorbitant medical costs mean that we all pay too much for health insuranceOverpriced care also translates into fewer raises for American workers. And to top it off, we’re not even getting the best care for our money.

Firstly, be aware that even if you have insurance, it doesn’t always fully protect you. Four years ago, Jocelyn Krevat, a 32-year-old occupational therapist from New York City, collapsed with a rare heart condition and ended up needing an emergency heart transplant. These are effective persuasive examples. She had it done at a…...

Acre Woods Retirement Case

...ACRE WOODS RETIREMENT COMMUNITY CASE STUDY 1. What are some potential legal and ethical issues present in this case study? Some potential legal issues that are present in this case study are fraud, and theft because where did the money go and what was it used on when it was supposed to be used on the updates of the pool, and if the money was their for it, why was it not used. Ethical issues that may be present in this case are deception, and dishonesty. 2. How would you characterize the director’s behavior? I would characterize the director’s behavior as non professional, dishonest, and very deceptive because why can has he not fulfilled what was promised. The resident’s rents were raised to upgrade this pool, and if the money is not used to do so, that is wrong and misuse of funds. He is not taking into consideration the serious concerns of an employee, or the safety of the residents. 3. Is the director an ethical role model? Why or why not? I do not think the director is an ethical role model because he is not conducting himself in a manner that a role model would. If he were a professional he would have took her concerns into serious consideration, and he would not have removed Sarah form her job in put her into another because she is concerned of the safety of the clients. 4. Were the director’s messages congruent with the organizations stated mission? Explain your answer. I do not......

Vagina Monologue

...women were in Vagina monologue and in The Laramie Project both disturbed me because I know people who could relate to both topics. Both are very close friend of mine. Starting off with Vagina Monologue the story that affected me the most was the situation with the girl who couldn’t speak English so she couldn’t tell her parents what actually happened so they assumed and treated her like she was washed up and a disgrace. She did nothing wrong and they were very wrong to assume without having and kind of communication with her. Not even to ask if she was okay being that they did think she was sexually abused. My friends Mom accused her of having sexual relations with her boyfriend which was totally gross!!! She didn’t want to hear her daughters side of the story so she just ------ her out. There was absolutely no communication going on what so ever and assumptions could go so far as to destroying something that means so much to you for no reason. Another part of the Vagina Monologue that made me think of a friend was when the girl was disgusted with her vagina!!!! She thought it was gross and she didn’t even want it… It reminded me of a girl I know who is gay, she hates her private part. She hates to acknowledge it and doesn’t even like to clean herself. She’s cried to me numerous times about it and I was speechless because I felt the vagina was a part of a woman’s body that should be embraced.

Forty Acres and a Mule

...Merely 35 years after the last shot was fired in the American Civil War on June 22, 1865, in 1901, anticipating his imminent displacement, George White—the last African American remaining in Congress—retired. He was a victim of North Carolina’s disfranchisement schemes. On the eve of his departure from the House, Mr. White lamented, “The mule died long ago and the land grabbers have obtained the 40 acres.” Audible in his tone was the frustration that underlay more than 30 years of broken promises made to African Americans. The phrase “forty acres and a mule” that Mr. White refers to in his address has its roots in the Special Field Order # 15 (SFO # 15). The order was signed into effect on January 16, 1865 by General William Tecumseh Sherman; just two months after Abraham Lincoln had been reelected to office. SFO #15 entitled each freed family forty acres of tillable land on islands and the coast of Georgia. However, there is no mention of mules (or any animals) in the field order. A popular fable is that Sherman's commissary man came to him complaining that he had a large number of “broken down” mules for which he had no means of disposal. Sherman sent the useless animals for distribution along with the land. The first two sections of the SFO # 15 describes the area where the land was to be reserved and section three clearly indicates the size of the land to be allocated. “Special Field Orders, No. 15 I. The islands from Charleston, south, the abandoned rice......

Monologue

...At the beginning Macbeth and Banquo come in being the best of friends, joking around and having their arms around each other. We can tell they are best friends at the start because Banquo calls Macbeth 'my noble partner' which gives the impression that they are good friends. After the witches have vanished and Macbeth is proclaimed thane of Cawdor they start hiding things from each other and make this noticeable by starting to stand further apart. At this point Macbeth and Banquo do not trust each other as much anymore.We can tell this because Macbeth starts speaking aside and talking to himself and the audience. 'Glamis and thane of Cawdor: the greatest is behind', This suggests that he does not trust Banquo as much anymore because he is talking to himself, which shows he is going mad, and it sounds like he is plotting to do something. Although Macbeth is starting not to trust Banquo, Banquo still is loyal to Macbeth. 'The instruments of darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles - to betrays in deepest consequence' Banquo is being a friend and trying to warn Macbeth that the witches were trying to make Macbeth do something bad. But this does not help Macbeth to hold back to kill Duncan. Banquo always knew Macbeth is going to do something stupid, his desires are going to kill his respect and honour for Duncan. Finally, today after the death of Duncan and fleeing of his two sons, Macbeth is announced king. Banquo feels bad about this and quickly rushes to his castle......

Monologue of a Character from Mango Street

...Internal monologue of Mamacita. I love my home and I miss it all the time. Now I am in a totally new place, the U.S, for my beloved husband. I love him so much that I want to be with him even though I can not speak english at all. I was hoping there would be a turning point, and everything would be fine when I arrived in this place. But so far, I know I am a prisoner. The prisoner of the new appartement. I was trapped in this GODDAMN cage and could not fly away to my homeland freely. I changed the radio channels one by one in order to get closer to the language I am familiar with. I wanted to be surrounded by Spanish, so I turned my radio up even though I knew I was bothering others. But I wanted it too desperately and perhaps I was escaping from the powerlessness I felt. I cannot do anything in this all-English society. I am just like a lost traveler in the middle of nowhere, struggling for survival. So I just sit by the window all day, listen to the radio, miss my country alone and sometimes, cry. My husband and I have fights more often, he forces me to speak English! But I canʼt! I do not belong here! I DO NOT belong here! I was screaming at him, perhaps I was screaming at myself at the same time. I need to move on since I have arrived in this new country. I felt like I was dying a little more everyday, but still, all I can do is lying to myself like a coward. Until one day, I received the death sentence. ——I heard my little child speaking English. He was singing the Pepsi......

Interior Monologue

...MONOLOGUE   Ten seconds left. I can barely hear anything. I feel the vomit creeping up in my throat as the milliseconds go by. Everything is getting very blurry. Tension is rising. Who would have thought that we would be down by one point and I would be the one trusted to hold this basketball? Why did my coach want me to shoot the last shot in the first place? What do I bring on this court that is any different from what my teammates would bring? Every face on my bench is almost frozen, their eyes locked on to me and the ball. There are hundreds of people in the stands watching my every move. Deep breath. Every little thing has to be on point. Nine seconds. I just want to pass the ball away over to my teammate, get rid of it. Why not? Who cares what my coach says? He’s the one who put me in this situation anyways. Eight seconds left. Its just too embarrassing to miss THE final shot in THE final game of the season. I have earned every second I stepped foot on this court and worked too hard for this shot to be a miss. All the time spent practicing and all the injuries, I just cant let myself and everyone down. Seven seconds. I see everyone in the stands jumping up and down but can barely hear them. What do they want from me? i’m 18 years old for crying out loud! It’s not like I’m in the NBA here! I want to see them try and step foot in my shoes right now... Nonsense, focus. My defender looks really intimidating. His muscles contract as his thumbs rub against his fingertips...

Catherine Earnshaw Withering Heights Monologue

...Catherine Earnshaw’s ghost - WH monologue (Cathy is lying in a propped up coffin in the centre of the stage. There are ghostly blue lights and ice machine effects) It seemed like aeons that I lay silently under the cold dark moor, tightly entwined in the arms of Death. I lay there in silent, unspeakable anguish, frozen by the heartbreak that consumed my soul and led me to my grave. Perhaps I was just waiting. (Dramatic pause) Waiting forever to hear the voice of my one beloved. The one man I lived for, and could not live without. I heard his cry from far away, raging against the night time wind. (light goes off Cathy and onto Heathcliff. Thunder and rain effects) ‘Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living! You said I killed you—haunt me, then!’ (Light goes back onto Cathy) As I heard his voice, (lightning effects) it was like a lightning bolt, shocking my soul back into consciousness. And once again, I could feel my mind becoming lucid, and blissful memories flooded my soul with joy and filled my body back with life. I recalled the day the scowling ‘gypsy’ boy came knocking, black faced and refusing to speak. I remembered the countless days he and I spent wandering the moors, holding each other passionately whilst the cold damp breeze blew our matted hair into wild flurries. Those were the times I lived for, as the rest of the world was so pale in comparison. Then I remembered how I threw it all away, all for pretty embroidered garments and bone china......

The Analsis of Bill Chess' Monologue in the Woman in White

...subtly into, or rather allows for the personal life of Bill Chess to be stated outright, with the detective mentioning the occasional hint or question to allow for a fuller explanation and understanding of the recent occurrences involving the disappearance of Crystal Kingsley. We learn much about both characters in this extract, allowing us to form a good idea of their personalities and mannerisms. “The Lady in the Lake” is a detective fiction novel, and elements of this genre shine through within this extract alone, from the almost interrogation-like scenario by which Bill pours out his story to Marlowe. In this extract we find Marlowe taking almost a step back from the scenario and acting essentially as a pair of ears tuned in on the monologue presented from Bill - the kind of subtle yet acute manner you would expect from a detective, and this lends itself towards the confirmation of the genre of detective fiction. This confirmation is heightened through the organisation of the extract; secrets are subtly unearthed by the detective, with the possibility of a death having occurred with the discovery of Muriel Chess’ note reading “…I’d rather be dead than live with you any longer. Muriel.” This deepening in severity of the situation opens multiple possibilities as to where the plot could lead the reader; in true detective fiction manner. With the narrative perspective being that of Marlowe’s, we see through his eyes the event’s occurrences and thus may be presented......

Viola's Monologue

...Skyler King Professor Lanham English 1020 February 6, 2015 Viola: What Means this Monologue? In the play “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare, Viola decides that she will disguise herself as a man and she will be working with the Duke Orsino. He has been in love with Olivia for a long time, and he asks Viola to be his messenger. Viola goes to meet Olivia and tells her everything Orsino told her too. Orsino also sent a ring with Viola to give to Olivia, which she did. As she leaves, Olivia realizes that she has fallen in love with her, even though she has no idea she is a woman dressed as a man. She sends Malvolio after her to give her the ring back. She then goes into a long monologue about the ring and how confused she was that she had gotten it back. A monologue is any composition in which a single person speaks alone (dictionary.com) In her monologue, it is clear that Olivia is falling in love with Viola, and that they are caught in the middle of one huge love triangle. Throughout Viola’s monologue, she depicts many different literary elements, including allusion, metaphor, personification, symbolism, and theme. When Malvolio brings back the ring that Viola had given Olivia, she becomes very confused. In her monologue, she is basically saying that she didn’t leave a ring with her, why is she giving this to her? She is hoping that Olivia hasn’t started to like her. She was looking at Viola so much that she couldn’t even finish her sentences and she seemed......

Juliet Monologue Analysis Act2 Scii

...Monologue Analysis JULIET Thou know’st the mask of night is on my face, Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek For that which thou hast heard me speak tonight. Fain would I dwell on form. Fain, fain deny What I have spoke. But farewell compliment! Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say “ay,” And I will take thy word. Yet if thou swear’st Thou mayst prove false. At lovers' perjuries, They say, Jove laughs. O gentle Romeo, If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully. Or if thou think’st I am too quickly won, I’ll frown and be perverse and say thee nay, So thou wilt woo. But else, not for the world. In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond, And therefore thou mayst think my 'havior light. But trust me, gentleman, I’ll prove more true Than those that have more coying to be strange. I should have been more strange, I must confess, But that thou overheard’st, ere I was 'ware, My true love’s passion.
