The type of narrator in the story is telling us everything about the character who meets people, and the things the character sees. Besides that, the narrator describes the character, who we follow in the story and we get to know what the character is doing. Example from the text: “Toby Heckler placed the slip of yellow paper under the windshield wiper of the black Oldsmobile that straddled two parking spaces.” We get a point of view from the narrator, where we get to know what Toby is doing, from the narrator’s perspective.
The direct information we get about the characters from the narrator: “Near the First National Bank two elderly ladies waited for the bus. They stood in the middle of the sidewalk away from the curb. Toby pulled out his pad, slipped the pen off his ear, held the cap with his teeth. He printed slowly, meticulously, then handed one of the ladies the slip, “TO MUSH IN WAY” signed “TOBY.” He secured his instruments, walked along as before. The two ladies examined the slip of paper, moved closer to the curb.” The way the narrator describes the way Toby contacted the ladies without saying a word with his mouth, it tells us that Toby is probably handicap.
The indirect information we get from the narrator’s description of setting, Toby’s notes and from dialogue: “On the yellow paper Toby had printed in red ink “PRAKING MISTEAK” and signed his name “TOBY” in a childish-looking hand.” “How’s it going, Toby?” McVee said. Toby pulled out his pad, showed it to McVee. “Lots of business, eh, Toby?” Toby put his pad back, nodded. His eyes rolled, looked tortured. “Yes, Toby, it’s a bitch,” McVee said. Toby looked at McVee’s shoes. Except for a single smudge, they were shiny, black. Toby bent down, rubbed off the smudge with his hand. “Thanks, Toby,” McVee said. Toby caught McVee’s…...

Pauls Case

...Person Response: Paul’s Case Paul’s Case is the story of a young man who struggles with his identity. Paul feels that he knows where he belongs, but his family and teachers refuse to support his choices. In the middle of Paul's Case, there is a switch in narration. At this point, the reader can identify with Paul and his problems. Paul struggled with both internal and external problems. His parents and teachers thought he was odd. How Paul felt, was miss understood. In the beginning of the story, Paul seems to be a typical teenage boy, who caused problems in the classroom. As the story progresses, the reader can infer that Paul is rather withdrawn. He would rather live in his fantasy world than face reality. Paul dreaded returning home after the Carnegie Hall performances. He loathed his "ugly sleeping chamber with the yellow walls," but most of all, he feared his father. This is the first sign that he has a troubled home life. Next, the reader learns that Paul has no mother, and that his father holds a neighbor boy up to Paul as "a model". The lack of affection that Paul received at home caused him to look elsewhere for the attention that he craved. Which I am sure many of us can relate to. The theater and Carnegie Hall was where Paul "really lived". To him, the rest of his life was but "a sleep and a forgetting". The moment Paul stepped into either one of those places; he felt he was in his element. He "breathed like a prisoner set free". Paul's life was so dull in......

...Kara Webster REL 212 5th March 2013 Unit 3 – Write Like Paul I Paul a follower of Christ Jesus. To Scott our respected pastor, to Clifford, Christian, and Alex our worthy ushers, and to the beloved people of the church. I pray grace, peace, and blessings over you from our Father and Jesus Christ. I remember all of you in my prayers. I appreciate your faith and admire your obedience. I pray that you are active in sharing your faith. I honor the love you have for one another, and I am in astonishment at the hearts you have refreshed. The Jewish Law has no importance to a person’s relationship with God. Jewish law states in order to get heaven you cannot eat pork. Christ Jesus will not care what you eat or when you eat it. Believe that Christ Jesus died on cross for you. Spread the word of his love and mercy. That is how you can call yourself Christian. What you eat is your personal preference. However eating the right thing will not get you nor keep the title Christian from you. So by all means eat pork hot dogs. Eat them for Sunday Supper or any supper. Pork has no correlation to being a Christian. The end of the world is near. Jesus is coming for judgment day. You should be anticipating, and constructing yourself for his return, things such as spreading his word and trying to renew hearts. Marriage and sex just get in the way of preparing for God’s judgment. I do not applaud to any use of......

Tickits by Paul Milenski

...EVRYTHING WRONG The way a person acts or perceives things can be can be caused by many different reasons such as having a bad upbringing like in Tickits by Paul Milenski. The short story is about a male named Toby Heckler who spends his days walking around town giving 'tickits' to people who may or may not be breaking rules. In Toby's ideal world, he would have more control and everything would be in order and if not, then he would hand out a miss-spelled ticket. For example, he gives a ticket to a man for littering, "PAPUR ON GRASS" but he also gives one to another man who almost walked across the street when the sign said 'DON'T WALK'. His want for control must have stemmed from the bad upbringing he received from his single mother. Having only one parent that "[lies] on the sofa, smoking, drinking, surrounded by TV magazines"(81) all day, Toby does not have parental figure to look up to. He is not able to control his mother therefore he has his tickets. Although Toby writes tickets for his mother, he never gives them to her but keeps them in a box labelled "MUTHERS TICKITS". Having no control with his mother, Toby needs to give tickets to the people in his town. This could possibly be a case of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). It seems that the only thing Toby does all day is to give tickets to people that do not do things properly in his eyes. But the tickets are not the only proof of OCD. The way the author describes how Toby walks and holds himself is another......

What do you think is the level of performance of the sales force each person heads? How do you think each of them will benefit from the sales management training seminar?

He does not care about building customer relationships, just offer products at lower prices than competition and you will get sales. He does not care about performance, just making sales.

...Paul as a Pastor After reading Annette Huzenga’s article on “Paul as a pastor in 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus” I began to think that Paul could not be a pastor in today’s society because of his strong personality and sense of a grand mission that he was truly dedicated to. As Huzenga said “Paul understood this about himself.” He never stayed long at a church because his mission was too large to hang around too long. He was preaching to the Non-Christians in the Roman Empire. He knew that his life was in danger with the Romans. Paul was not a pastor, he was an apostle; (295). An apostle is known for moving around from one place to another. The apostle sends information to their churches and anoint others like Timothy and Titus to oversee the churches after his work is done. Timothy and Titus were not pastors, but “overseers”, “elders” or “deacons” to focus on two main points of leadership. (295) Timothy and Titus were Pauls’ respected coworkers, so they had to conduct themselves the same way as him. As far as what the scholars say, Paul didn’t write the letters and that they were written after his death, is an individuals’ belief. (295) I personally believe he wrote because Jesus chose him to do such a difficult job and I don’t think that Jesus would not stay with him to complete his work. I can only read their comments and go on. Paul was definitely a teacher as pastorals called “a teacher” in (1 Tim 2:7; 2 Tim 1:11). The pastorals used language for instruction......

The Letter of Paul

...The Letters of Paul Apostle Paul is very unique with his writings to the people. Paul made his letters real as they could get and they dealt with life and death issues. The letter structure of was highly important part of the ancient letter, as compared to the Hellenistic letter with those in Paul’s letter to Philemon. The whole anatomy of Paul’s letters was special because they all had structure. Paul has several sections in his letters: salutation, thanksgiving, the body, the closing, and the conclusion. The salutation was the most stable elements during the ancient period. The form is rather precise unlike today were we use the sender and recipient, as well as a greeting in the letter. I saw how Paul molds us in his letter to Philemon. During the time of this letter, Paul was in prison, he was addressing the master of Onesimus, which was a runaway slave who has sought refuge with Paul. Meanwhile, Onesimus was converted this set the stage for this letter. In this letter, Paul reminded Philemon that his apostolic mission gave him a prior claim on Onesimus. Paul treated Onesimus as if he was his own brother. Earlier during the beginning of the salutation, Paul identifies himself as a “prisoner for Christ Jesus.” Thus, this condition keys around Paul’s plea for leniency to Onesimus surfaces in the beginning of the letter. In Romans, we see how Paul’s original version of the conservative letter opening. His writings were to the church, one that he never been to before......

Paul Friere

...Paul Freire (1921-1997) left a remarkable mark on the perception of the ways in which education can change the oppressed. He championed for the progressive practice and active learner’s participation in formulating how education should be developed and implemented. According to him, education is never neutral; it is manipulated by those in power to oppress their subjects. The humanization process of education is a state where no one is subject or object over the other. Through education, the oppressed should be empowered to see the conditions that keep them in their current state (Flanagan, 2005). By understanding that their predicament is not natural the oppressed should then discover alternatives to what had been perceived as natural “Education empowers the oppressed to discover alternatives to situations which have been taken as natural, necessary and unchangeable” (Flanagan, 2005 p. 186). Paul Freire’s contribution to overcoming this problem was through reversing the depository position of students, encouraging the creativity of the student to be in accordance with their lived experiences, promoting freedom, the praxis of thought and action and dialogue that incorporates charity, faith and hope (Gadotti, 1994). William Brickman greatly contributed the field of comparative and international education. He is also the founder of Comparative Education Society. Through wide research, travels and participation in other cultures William Brickman encouraged the joint......

...It’s a Matter of Humor and Laughter Ethics and Psychology of Humor in Popular Culture June 26, 2014 Instructor Marcy Goodfleish Have you ever heard of the phrase “Laughter is the best medicine?” Well believe it or not laughter and humor have helped people all around the world to get through some of the hardest times of their lives. Famous scholar Herbert Paul Grice born March 15, 1913 and died August 28, 1988 (http://www.plato.stanford.edu) felt that humor is expressed through five rules that can either be broken and upheld in order to converse with one another in a way that’s understandable. In this analysis of Grice’s rules of conversation the five rules will be broken down and interpreted to compare and contrasts his idea of what humor and laughter are and how they relate to the theories of humor in philosophy and the psychology of humor. Rule one of Grice’s theory states “Do not say what you believe to be false” (Morreall 2009. Page 2). What can be taken from this phrase is that if you know something to be untrue or you lack the evidence necessary to prove your statement, do not say it at all just keep it to yourself. This is considered a lie whenever this rule of conversation is put into place. “Do not say that for which you lack adequate evidence”(Morreall 2009. Page 2), this phrase falls in the same category as the one before lying is unacceptable when acknowledging Grice’s conversational rules. As the two relate to theories in humor the superiority......

...Paul Paul was man who not only contributed tremendously to the Old Testament works, who also spearheaded the spread of the Gospel to Asia, Africa and India. Paul or formal know as Saul was Roman born citizen per Acts 22:28. Saul, respectfully, was born some time between 5 A.D. and 5 B.C. Little is know about Saul up bringing other than he was a “ Pharisee, son of Pharisee” Much of what Christians know of Saul, is her encounter with the angel of Jesus on the Damascus Road. Paul, or Saul at the time; was in route to persecute the Christians. It was then Saul converted to Christianity and became Paul. It was also during this encounter that Paul was blinded. He was let to the city of Damascus with assistance due to his blindness. After 3 days his sight was restored. From this point forward Paul would travel the known world spreading the Gospel from Europe to Asia. Paul would even be arrested and imprisoned for spreading the Gospel. It was assume that he was telling people to go against the law. But that was not his goal. Paul also wrote 13 to 14 books in the bible. The reason for there not being an exact number is because the book of Hebrew is still being debated as a book the Paul wrote. Paul is one of many figures of Christian history that help shape what we practice and teach today. How interesting it would be to have a discussion with such a culture and well rounded individual.

Paul Milenski - Tickits

...Tickits by Paul Milenski “Then, before he put the box away, he wrote one more slip in his largest letters: “ERVYTHING WORNG!” (p. 2. l. 35-36)” This quote is a central symbol of the theme. Toby is handicapped. I believe he is suffering from arrested development. Tickets are frequently given by the police or other higher authorities to an individual, who breaks the law. Tickets are generally given, when people break the Road Traffic Act or something like that. This is the way a lot of people would describe getting a ticket. But this description does not fit the way Toby writes his tickets. Toby gives tickets to random people, who he believes are breaking the rules of a well-being society. It might seem very peculiar, that Toby writes tickets for small incidents. He gives two ladies a ticket for standing in the middle of the pavement. But there is a reason why, and the quote proves this point of view – everything in Tobys life is wrong. In order to rectify things in his mind Toby writes tickets to get a healthy society. Given tickets is something in his life, which he can control. A central theme is therefore, how Toby tries to get everything around him to be right. The text “TICKITS” was written in 1978. The writer is Paul Milenski. The text is about a young chap, his name is Toby Heckler. The story deals with a serious subject regarding human relationships and the lack of order in a Toby’s life. The narrative technique is a third person narrative. The third person......

Paul Ingram

...Paul Ingram Paul Ingram was a deputy sheriff and chairman of the local republican party was accused of sexually abusing two of his daughters in 1988 (Brailey, 1999). When Ingram is confronted with these accusations he makes an unusual remark “I can’t see myself doing this” and “I taught the kids not to lie” and pleads guilty (Brailey, 1999). There are other accounts that the confession took days for Ingram to confess to sexually abusing his daughters (Fulero & Wrightsman, 2008). The daughter’s accusations became with time more bizarre Fulero and Wrightsman, (2008) and implicated the addition of other men who would get drunk during pocked games and have sex with one of the girls. The allegations also included the slaughter of 25 babies in satanic cult rituals (Fulero & Wrightsman, 2008). Brailey (1999) also claimed she had an abortion and was forced to eat pieces of her dead baby during these satanic cult rituals. Olio and Cornell (1993) The Ofshe experiment Richard Ofshe a sociologist was hired by the prosecution because of his expert knowledge of cult behaviour (Brailey, 1999). Ofshe met the girls who had made the allegations and decided they were not telling the truth he concluded that Ingram had been manipulated into making a false confession. (Brailey, 1999). Ofshe decided to do an experiment with Ingram telling him that he had forced his son to have sex with his daughter while he watched Ingram at first he denied knowledge of ever remembering this event happening......

...Paul, born Saul, was borne in Tarsus which was considered an epicenter of knowledge. This speaks of where Paul received his education and understanding of many things. Paul was a Roman citizen and although the scripture does not address where his citizenship came from it helped all throughout his ministry. Paul in Acts 18:3 is listed as a tentmaker and we can make the connection from 1 Thessalonians2:9 that this was done to offset his living expenses lessening his burden to the believers. Paul trained under Gamaliel in Acts 22:3-4 we see that he learned to be zealous for God and that he persecuted the followers of Jesus. The Bible then tells us of how Jesus interrupted Paul’s life. Paul chronology in the Bible only contains a few markers but without external evidence of Paul’s chronology they are still useless. The most important external evidence of Paul’s chronology is the Gallio Inscription which gives us an estimate of when Paul appeared before Gallio in Acts 18:12-17. After Paul’s conversion in Acts 9 Jesus sends him to Damascus to receive his sight back and receive instruction. Acts 9:20 says, immediately he began proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues: “He is the Son of God.” Then it seems that after his conversion he went to Jerusalem three years later, and then again eleven years later. The importance of Paul’s conversion in Galatians 1 signifies that the conversion is the reference point for all dating. Paul began in Damascus proclaiming in the synagogue, Acts......
