A murder has happed in the town and the murderer is Thomas Delaney one of the younger locals in town who killed Mathew Rhinehart in the heat of the moment after finding out at he had been molesting his wife. Michael goes looking for the hangman who has just arrived in town, I believe his motives are pure he wants to meet this hang man to see what kind of person he is and if there is a story he will write about it. So he goes to the hotel in town and finds out that there’s one man staying by himself a man named K.Smith, and he is looking for a bout to go fishing, there is only one place he could be Smollet’s place. And that is where he finds him. Michael helps Simtty get a bout and the two head out to go fishing. Michael finds out fast that smitty is not a bad man, he’s very polite and a tad bit shy, they befriend but Michael would much prefer not to be seen with him. I got this from when smitty wanted to try fishing again in the morning and Michael brushes him off by saying that he would try but it would be hard for him. The next day at the hanging Michael is disturb by the atmosphere of the place, the locals are all riled up and there hater is focus on the hangman who Michael knows is not a bad man. But when smith arrives he walks towards Michael and talks to him like there old friends and then hands him some fish that he had got that morning from fishing and was looking for him. This I think sets Michael up for his betrayal as much as he may like Smitty, this is his town and he most likely knows the man smith is hanging and does not want to be associated with him. Michael is afraid of being black listed from his home and as well the new paper industry, and what happened to smitty would be bad press for…...

Identify Two Microeconomics and Two Macroeconomics

...• Identify two microeconomics and two macroeconomics principles or concepts from the simulation. Explain why you have categorized these principles or concepts as macroeconomic or microeconomic. o Microeconomics Principals: Scenario 1: In one of the first scenarios it talks about decreasing the rent to lower the vacancy percentage and maximize revenue for the company putting the focus on supply and demand. This would be a temporary fix on a month-to-month basis. o Microeconomics Principals: Scenario 4: Here the company is talking about a new company coming to town and increase the population along with jobs, and suggest they increase rental rates in response to the increase in demand. Not only would this apply to vacant apartments but to the renewal of leases as well. o Macroeconomics Principals: Scenario 3; in this scenario it brings up Atlantis Housing Survey statistics on a demand as a whole. It showed that individuals working in Atlantis are living in neighboring cities due to the rent being less. o Macroeconomics Principals: Scenario 7: The government steps in and puts a ceiling of $1550 on monthly rent for 2 bedroom apartments so that middle class families can afford to live in the city in which they work in. So the company decides to rent only a portion of their apartment’s in order to make a profit due to maintenance cost and so forth. • Identify at least one shift of the supply curve and one shift of the demand curve in the simulation.

Operate a Two (Two Wheels Only)

...OPERATE A TWO (Two Wheels Only) As I watch, the transparent sunbeams shining through the cloud as they make their way toward the ground. I can feel the oppressive heat in the air and witness the innocent water vaporizes. I think to myself, “This is perfect! Sun, Sun, and more Sun.” I climb aboard the giant beast Suzuki GsxR-1000 to make a final preparation for my journey. As I push the start button and the bike roaring to life, the power vibrates my seat at first and then settles into a soft rumble. I navigate my way through the clutch until I am in the right gear. I engage the throttle and hang on for a fun ride! As I put on the Icon lifejacket and tighten the thick black straps, I remind myself to stay calm and not to made stupid or impulsive decision during my journey. It’s easy to lose track of reality when I push myself off the limits. I need to remember to respect the other operators, the Mother Nature and myself before I take the roaring bike out on the road. First, I always keep in mind that other drivers are not looking for me. Most people literally don’t see me, because they’re so used to looking for gigantic moving objects. It’s for this reason that so many sightless drivers just seem to pull out in front of me. When I’m out on the road, I always drive super defensively because I know that I’m practically invisible to everyone else. A single mistake can have my brain splattered all over the pavements. Another problem I will counter, other than reckless fellow......

...Kellie Whitmore Psy 100 Feb. 22, 2013 Ms. Eyre Two People Two Problems with Behavior Jamie and John are suffering from so many problems in life right now, they are overwhelmed and want to tune everyone out and be left alone. Jamie and John feel isolated even though they are doing this to themselves, they do not see any other option because they have reached their limit on dealing with stress and now they are just reacting. When life becomes unmanageable we should seek the help we need to be able to deal with things as they come and not be swallowed up with stress. As Jamie’s friend, to help her relieve some of her symptoms I would watch her child at least one night each week for several hours and then send her to bed to get some much needed sleep. Her sleep deprivation is making an already tenuous situation much. I would be available to listen to Jamie when she needed to talk so she could get some of her stress off of her. I would suggest to Jamie that she contact the local mental health center to set up a free or low cost appointment to see a therapist so she could get some professional help and find some much needed relief. I would encourage Jamie to spend time with close friends and family because withdrawing from familiar and much loved friends and family will only succeed in making her 2 feel more overwhelmed, research suggests that spending time with those close to you is actually a good way to relieve stress. To help Jamie not feel so......

Two Kinds

...“Two Kinds”, By Amy Tan In “Two Kinds” (Tan, 206) Suyuan; mother, and June Mei; daughter are mother and daughter who struggle to find a common ground on many things. Suyuan is a Chinese immigrant from China. Suyuan arrived in America after losing everything. This includes, “mother, father, family home, first husband, and two twin daughters”. (Tan, 206) Even after all that was lost, she knew her decision to go to America was the right one. She now has a new life, a new husband, and a new daughter; June Mei. Suyuan has high expectations of her daughter. She had such a fascination with young white girls in film that she would try and force that image onto her daughter. Unfortunately, the results left her daughter looking like a “Negro Chinese” (Tan, 206) With all of the emulating forced on her daughter; the strive to be exceptional, June Mei didn’t want to be that. She just wanted to be normal. When her mother put her in piano classes, June did her best to not be good at it. June Mei didn’t want to be genius. She felt that her mother didn’t like her the way she was. Suyuan became so angry that she slapped June Mei. She accused her daughter of being ungrateful. I don’t think June Mei understood all that was sacrificed by her mother so that she could live a live with plenty of opportunity. “Two Kinds” for Suyuan meant, “Two kinds of daughters’, she said, “Those who are obedient, and those who follow their own mind”. (Tan, 211) Suyuan only wanted one kind......

A Ban on Some Seafood Has Fishermen Fuming

...and provide services that improve or maintain environmental sustainability, such as sustainability education seminars. A sixteen-month implementation plan involving education seminars, public relations management, and the milestone program to build this long-term relationship should be implemented. Introduction As a sustainability initiative, your company, Whole Foods Inc., is imposing a ban on seafood that has a ‘red rating’. This rating set by the Blue Ocean Institute is based on several factors. Your ban mainly targets catch methods that damage the habitat. As a result of this ban, your relationship with the U.S. seafood suppliers is affected, especially New England suppliers. These suppliers are mainly independent fishermen who depend on your large and steady demand of seafood. Suppliers affected by the ban are unhappy to lose your business and feel great pressure to find alternative buyers for the rejected seafood. Their belief that the ban is more of a marketing ploy than a genuine move to protect the environment further adds to their dissatisfaction. How can Whole Foods generate positive public relations and maximize financial return through this sustainability initiative? We recommend that you work closely with your suppliers within the next 16 months to accomplish progressive milestones in adopting sustainable fishing methods. Environmental Analysis Your company is staying competitive in the grocery industry by implementing a focused......

Two Kinds

...An Essay about ‘Two Kinds’ by Amy Tan The short story ‘Two Kinds’ was written by Amy Tan and published. It’s about a woman from China who immigrated to America with great success, and therefore has big expectation of her daughter. Tan herself is also the daughter of a couple who emigrated from China which explains why she writes about this topic. The narrator is first-person which gives the impression that Tan is telling her story. The story is set in Chinatown, America during the late 1950’s. Amy Tan doesn’t tell us a lot about the setting other than the narrator lives with her mother and father in an apartment. They don’t have a lot of money. The mother works as a cleaning lady, and earns her money from cleaning people’s houses. It also shows how little money the family has that the mother has to clean a blind retired piano teacher’s apartment in order for her daughter to get piano lessons. Even though they don’t have a lot of money they seem to be quite happy with their situation. This may be because the mom came from China where she lost everything because of the war, so the little they have is still a lot more then what she would have in China. Most of the story takes place on the floor of the apartment they live in, either in their own or else in the apartment of the protagonist’s piano teacher Mr Chung. The narrator is a girl. She has short hair, because her mom thought it would help her get to be a famous child actress. She’s properly in her teenage years,......

Two Dads Two Moms

...Eric Abeyta B.J. Sunnanborg English 090 April 28, 2014 Two Moms or Two Dads Should gays and lesbians be granted the right to adopt a child? Today's view of gays and lesbians is drastically different than it was in the past. As more people "come out of the closet" gays and lesbians are becoming more socially accepted. They currently are battling for equality in a variety of areas. The most common areas are choosing to adopt a child and the impact that might have on themselves as well as the child and equal marriage. There are three main ways that gays and lesbians are raising children and acquiring families without the courts becoming involved. The first way, which is also the most common way, is when heterosexual marriages dissolve after one parent apparently "comes out." With this situation, as long as there isn't a messy custody battle in court most often the child is raised by the gay or lesbian parent, and is also fully aware of his or her parent's sexual tendencies. The second method is lesbians receiving artificial insemination. Estimates of the number of children born to lesbians through artificial insemination range in the tens of thousands. Lastly, there is one of the newer methods: gays and lesbians going into an agreement with each other to produce a child. In some cases they share duties and custody in raising the child. In other cases the men or women avoid any attachment with the child at all (Bernard, T. S.). Lesbian and gay......

Two Question

...“Two Questions,” by Lynda Barry, is a short story about believing in yourself and your work. Barry talks about something that everyone goes through sometimes in their lives. We all criticize ourselves trying to please others. Criticizing ourselves will only lower our self confidence. Lynda Barry teaches us not to care about others opinion and do what makes us happy. If we try to please others’ then we’ll never be happy. While reading the story, I realized that I used to ask the same two questions as Lynda Barry when I finished my work. The two questions Barry asks are, “Is this good? Does this suck?" (168). Throughout middle school and some parts of high school, I used to always second guess myself by asking these two questions. I would rely on others’ opinion. I didn’t think that it was good enough until someone else told me it was. “But the two questions find everybody” (Barry, 170). Just like me, you might find yourself asking these same questions. You might also find yourself asking these questions to others. You might rely on others opinion more than your own. You might trust their opinions more then you trust your own. This text agrees with the view I have of the world. Our society cares more about others opinion than their own. “As, for bad drawings, I tried my best not to ever make them”. We try to please others more than ourselves. That is how our society works. We believe in others more than we believe in ourselves. “For the next 30 years I chased......

I would ask Darlene to come back into my office. I would politely remind her that she had a job to do and regardless of our personal feelings about smoking we had work that had to be completed. I would also remind Darlene that her feelings would be considered and let her know I intend to find a solution that will satisfy everyone which included scheduling a meeting with the department to address the issue. After that conversation, I would ask for Darlene’s patience while I work with everyone through the issue. I would mention some of the things I plan to do in the short term while we reach a permanent solution. I would also mention to Darlene that maybe the approach she took toward me as her supervisor may not have been the best choice. I would not necessarily reprimand her for being insubordinate to me at that moment because I would not want Darlene to feel like I was threatening her but it would be noted in my file on her to be discussed at review time when the tension may not be as high as it is now. I would offer suggestions to Darlene on obtaining the files needed to complete the report like......

Comparison of Two Colonies

...AMH 2041 Comparison Of Two Colonies North American history was believed to have started in 1620 with the discovery of Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts. Seeking religious freedom from the corrupt Church of England, some 100 people departed on a journey from England to find a place where they could practice their beliefs of Calvinism and Lutheranism free from persecution2. They later formed denominations of Christianity called Separatism and Puritanism3. Although, these pilgrims established 13 original colonies in North America, the settlements of Virginia and Massachusetts show some striking similarities and differences. On one hand, religion as the major motivation, and on the other hand a financial venture sponsored by the queen. Massachusetts was given its name from a man named John Smith, an English explorer and was named after the native Massachusetts tribe that resided in the area. Other native tribes in the area were the Nauset, a fishing tribe located on Cape Cod; the Wampanoag in the southeast; the Massachusetts in the northeast; the Nipmuc, centrally; and the Pocumtuc, westward. Without their knowledge, Permanent English settlement would soon drastically impact the lives of the native peoples2. In 1630, Massachusetts Bay Colony was developed and occupied about 1,000 citizens. John Winthrop, the chief figure of the New England Puritans, gave a sermon called “A Model of Christian Charity,” suggesting ideas that the people should find a sense of......

When Fishermen Dont Fish

...When Fishermen Don’t Fish Matthew 4:18-20 In his book In the Eye of the Storm, Max Lucado tells about something that happened to him while he was in high school. Every year, he and his family used to go fishing during spring break. But one year, his brother and his mom couldn’t go, so his dad let him invite a friend. They looked forward to this vacation with great anticipation. They pictured the sun shining down on them as they sat in the boat in the middle of the lake. The yank of the rod and the spin of the reel as they wrestled the bass into the boat. The smell of fish frying in a skillet over an open fire. They could hardly wait. Finally spring break arrived, they loaded the camper and set out for the lake. They arrived at night, set up the camper and went to bed anxious to get up the next morning and go fishing. But that night, a northeaster blew through. The wind was so strong they could barely open the door of the camper the next morning. The sky was gray. The lake was choppy. There was no way they could fish in that weather. "No problem," they said. They could spend the day in the camper. They had brought Monopoly and Reader’s Digest. They knew a few jokes. It wasn’t what they came to do, but they would make the best of it and fish the next day. So they passed the day indoors. The hours passed slowly but they did pass. Night finally came and they crawled into their sleeping bags dreaming of fishing. The next morning it wasn’t the wind that made the......

Two Dystopias

...Two Dystopias “Harrison Bergeron” (1961) by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. and “The Ones who walk away from Omelas” (2001) by Ursula Leguin are both short stories set in dystopic worlds. In “Harrison Bergeron”, everyone has been made equal. In order to achieve this, anyone who is more intelligent, beautiful, and athletic than others must wear a handicap in order to meet the government’s standards of what they considered to be “average”. In “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” the characters live in a world where everybody is happy although living their everyday life with the knowledge of one injustice. This one injustice is that the people of Omelas are aware of a child who is living in a locked cellar with poor conditions, who is malnourished and neglected. The citizens in Harrison’s world are suffering from a life with harsh restriction and do not have the freedom to live life as they want to. The life of the citizens in both stories are unaccepted; however, the world portrayed in “Harrison Bergeron” is more intolerable. In both worlds there are people who are suffering. Most of the habitants of Omelas are living a joyous life but at the expense of one child’s misery; they are aware of the living conditions of the child, yet they choose to live their lives normally. Others who were unable to stand to live with this guilt decided to leave the city. The world described in “Harrison Bergeron”, those who were seen as higher than average has to wear a handicap.
