Season I Like Most

...I like summer the most. This may seem Stanger, but it is a fact for me. Let me first narrate the good and the bad sides of the seasons clearly. In summer, the heat becomes oppressive. It causes physical hardship that sometimes become unbearable. We feel easily tired. What with the heat and the sweat and the dust and the flies at times, it is positively maddening. On the other hand, the general health is usually good. The discomforts caused by cold season ailments of digestion, common in the rainy season, practically do not exist in this stern season. Further, the sultry and humid heat of noonday is usually compensated by the refreshing breeze that blows in at about evening. And then a thunder-shower or two brings down the tem­perature and gives us a pleasant respite. Summer has richer compensations that make it so dear to me. First, there is the mango, the world's wonder-fruit. Next, there is the joy of playing football, the world's most popular game. As soon as the sea-breeze begins to blow across the fields, out we go with our ball, and then there is a joy of having a refreshing bath that follows. It cools the body and soothes the mind. At what season, again, is the sweetness of an ice-cream or a cold drink so deliciously inviting? At night we may sleep under the electric fan or the open sky, refreshed by the breeze. In summer, we can go up a hill-side station or down to a sea­side resort and both are equally welcome. Above all, their is the charm of the long......

Most Wanted seams like it’s the mother who has the control over the family. For example on (P1, LL 37-38) ‘’Mum suggested that Allison Church be invited for tea. Dad didn’t attempt a comment, knowing it had never been his place to initiate such transactions.’’ When the narrator comes home from school she always ask her mother before her father. When the narrator in the end finds out that the parents are getting a divorce she is not surprised. In the case when Gary kisses her and she pulls him away. It shows that she is not used to show her feelings to other persons. In their relationship they can talk about sex but not love so it is a huge chock for her that he kisses her. ‘’Most Wanted’’ is the part where Michelle are fighting for her parent’s attention by stealing things.

The Most Useful Class

Well if you ever want to become successful in your future, then it is a MUST that you take public speaking. It is a class that will benefit you for a life time and you will have NO regrets whatsoever taking public speaking. I myself learned a lot in public speaking. I took the class in high school, so I was kind of familiar and comfortable with it. But the high school class wasn’t as in depth as the college course is. I plan on joining the United States Marine Corps this fall. I know for a fact that public speaking will already put me ahead of all the other marines when I join. Most people think Public Speaking only applies to speaking in front of a large audience or a formal speaking type setting. But it doesn’t! Not only has this class helped me speak in front of large audiences, but it has also allowed me to become a better communicator as a person as well. And this is important in our everyday lives as humans. If you don’t learn how to properly communicate with another person then you won’t be very successful in life. This class is one of the key main ingredients when it comes to success in life. This class helped me build my speaking confidence as well. It will teach you principles and techniques that help you mentally when speaking in front of people. I have a buddy who wants to major in business for his college degree and he asked me if a...

The Person I Admire Most

...THE PERSON I ADMIRE MOST Talk about the person that I admire so much, a lot of names run through my mind. My mother, sister and some good friends. I even wanted to write about Shim Changmin, the man that made my eyes pop out and he is my love at first sight among the Korean boy bands. But then , I decided to write about a person whom I admire so much and who has influenced me a lot . she is my best friend from my hometown, Kerteh , Terengganu. Her name is Khairunnisa and everyone calls her NIsa. She is as pretty as her name but she does not seem to realise this or she chooses to ignore it. She has a face that every girl would die for. She has silky soft , white creamy skin. Her sparkling hazel eyes are complemented by dark sooty lashes . Her hair is straight , waist length and lustrous like the models in the Rejoice shampoo advertisement. She is a simple girl but yet other girls are envious of her. Though she is petite, small and slender she is strong willed and matured. It is not her physical appearance that made me admire her. Her personality attracts people like magnets. She is friendly, talks politely to everyone, has a good sense of humour, caring and a good Muslimah. Another good thing about her , she has no time for puppy love. Although she has many good looking suitors flirting with her, my elder brother included, she paid no attention to all of them. Sometimes I wish she had introduced some of the guys to me. However , being a good Muslimah, she stays......

Where Needs Rebranding the Most?

...conclusion that Dover is in need of rebranding the most. Their prominent age group is 60+, this can suggest that the area doesn’t attract the younger/middle ages that tend to work within the secondary and tertiary industry. This means that the business sector is suffering from deprivation and high vacancy numbers which can lead to deindustrialisation. Although Dover have prominent age group of 60+, the crime rate for ‘No. of crimes per 1000’ is at 99 and the ‘No. of burglaries per 1000’ is at 6, these two figures are quite high considering Dover is a rural/sub-urban area, this can suggest people have a lot of time and less to spend. The prominent age of 60+ can explain why the ‘% 5+ A* -C GCSE’s’ is lowest of all areas at 74%, but it could suggest that the educational facilities are poor. Dover’s housing prices were 2nd highest in the list of areas, I presume the housing prices are set from the elderly who have established (owned) houses for a number of years, this means anyone out-migrating into the area will find it difficult to pay for a mortgage and own a house. To conclude, Dover could fall into a vicious cycle of poverty, unless rebranding occurs to attract more business to the area and more people (residents/tourist), but on the other hand the residents may like the idea that it doesn’t attract large business and tourist. From the results I have acquired, I have come to a conclusion that Dover is in need of rebranding the most. Their prominent age group is 60+, this......

It’s a simple shortcut that helps us associate the information we want to remember with an image, a sentence, or a word. Popular mnemonic devices include: The Method of Loci The Method of Loci is a mnemonic device that dates back to Ancient Greek times, making it one of the oldest ways of memorizing we know of. First, imagine a place with which you are familiar. For instance, if you use your house, the rooms in your house become the objects of information you need to memorize. You go through a list of words or concepts needing memorization, and associate each word with one of your locations. You should go in order so that you will be able to retrieve all of the information in the future. Acronyms An acrostic is a series of lines from which particular letters (such as the first letters of all lines) from a word or phrase. These can be used as mnemonic devices by taking the first letters of words or names that need to be remembered and developing an acronym or acrostic.

Also set goals, and reward levels for those goals. Regardless of the profession a woman choses one will have its own set of obstacles that must be overcome and shared in order to lend way for other women to follow. * Most young girls like to play house and pretend they are the mother to their baby dolls. Through cartoons where the princess are always saved by the prince or the man choses a wife are all examples of where the perception of self comes to play. This is depicted in doing battle with a certain phantom. The phantom is named “The Angel in the House”. This Angel is a symbolism of the perception instilled in a lot of women.

Google; the Most Popular and Most Exciting Company

...Google; the most popular and most exciting company Google Google is indubitably the most popular and most exciting company in the world today. According to its corporate website, it's mission is to “organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful” (Google, 2010). Google ranked first place in Fortune Magazine's annual “Best Companies to Work For,” besting other top companies for two consecutive years, in 2007 and 2008. The most cited reason its performance as a top employer is because of its internal company culture. Google is the ultimate global company and is described as “high-energy, fast paced work environment” (Google, 2010). On its website, its policy of “favoring ability over experience” rings true as the employees of Google are all college degree holders at the very least. Because Google is oriented toward its “youthful” internet-savvy market, the average age of its employees is noticeably lower than most companies. The median age at Google is 30 years old and the gender distribution is 65% male and 35% female (Linkedin, 2010). The dress code is “casual” and laid-back because the company values ability and hard work, not appearance. Google has a very engaging company culture. Its headquarters at Google Mountain View, CA called Googleplex is designed to be have a “campus-like” feel attuned to its predominantly young college-level fresh recruits (Google, 2010).
