CHAPTER 1

At a normal high school, having class outside on a

gorgeous May day is usually pretty awesome. It means sitting in the sunshine, maybe reading some poetry, letting the breeze blow through your hair. . . .
At Hecate Hall, a.k.a. Juvie for Monsters, it meant I was getting thrown in the pond.
My Persecution of Prodigium class was gathered around the scummy water just down the hill from the school. Our teacher, Ms. Vanderlyden—or the Vandy, as we called her—turned to Cal. He was the school’s groundskeeper even though he was only nineteen. The Vandy took a coil of rope from his hands. Cal had been waiting for us at the pond. When he’d seen me, he’d given me a barely perceptible nod, which was the Cal version of waving his hands over his head and yelling, “Hey, Sophie!”
1

He was definitely the strong and silent type.
“Did you not hear me, Miss Mercer?” the Vandy said, twisting the rope in her fist. “I said come forward.”
“Actually, Ms. Vanderlyden,” I said, trying not to sound as nervous as I felt, “see this?” I gestured to my mass of curly hair. “This is a perm, and I just got it done the other day, so . . . yeah, probably shouldn’t get it wet.”
I heard a few muffled giggles, and next to me, my roommate Jenna muttered, “Nice one.”
When I first came to Hecate, I would’ve been too terrified of the Vandy to talk back to her like that.
But by the end of last semester, I’d watched my greatgrandmother kill my best frenemy, and the boy I loved had pulled a knife on me.
I was a little tougher now.
Which was something the Vandy apparently did not appreciate. Her scowl deepened as she snapped, “Front and center!”
I muttered a few choice words as I moved through the crowd. When I reached the shore, I kicked off my shoes and socks to stand next to the Vandy in…...

...Dear Mr. President, As you know, civic and political participation is important. It allows any citizen to be active in the government. Some people in the world are more active than others. One of those people happens to have been Dorothea Dix. I am writing you to see if there is any way we could acknowledge what Dix did for the people of our country. Dorothea Dix was born in Hampden Maine in 1802. Her journey began when she witnessed the horrible conditions of a women’s prison in Massachusetts. She saw how the prisoners, especially the mentally ill, were being treated, and knew she had to make a change. She spent the next 40 years of her life trying to improve conditions. Dix began traveling throughout the state to research the conditions of other prisons. She gathered information that she then presented to the Massachusetts legislature. By doing this, she managed to get more money for the expansion of the State Mental Hospital. Although this itself was a major accomplishment, she wasn’t satisfied. She then traveled all over the country doing more research such as the conditions of the prisons, and the treatment of the patients. She started campaigning to create humane asylums and succeeded in quite a few states. Next, Dix decided to go to congress. She wanted them to grant her more than 12 million acres of land to use for the benefit of the mentally ill. Both houses of congress approved the bill, but it was vetoes by President Franklin Pierce in 1854. Dix was less than...

...in other wards people come to the United States with the hope of getting a better life and achieving the ultimate “American Dream”. Indeed the United States being a developed country and having one of the best economy has favourable living conditions in comparison to other parts of the world. This was not the basic reason back in the 17thand 18th century where America was more so a dump place for the poor or people trying to escape harsh governments. Immigration into America is still going on to this very day and it has become an issue amongst many who claim that it is impacting the country in a negative way. Is immigration really having a negative impact in the United States? Perhaps Immigration does have its pros and cons. All together I do agree that there are a lot of effects of a large movement of people into the United States. One of them largely being the variety of races that has made America a uniquely diversified nation that it is today. One of the races being Iranian American that’s purely an immigration group considering that they all came from the Iranian Republic. Digging a little into history acknowledges the fact that America was originally occupied my Native Americans. Therefore majority of the population in America is by fact as a result of immigration. Due to this the United States has endeavoured to put a lot of strict laws and policies governing immigration. This is also coupled with the fact that there a lot of undocumented citizens walking and......

...sticking with the brand, taste. Coca-Cola has a very distinct taste compared to their competition, which all taste the same from one cola to another in my opinion anyway. Therefore, a less loyal customer would simply move on and buy an alternative product that is similar to this one. By taking this action it can be said that Coca-Cola demonstrated a “door on the face” technique. They scared their customers with a threat of such a drastic change.  The Coca-Cola Company did though rebranded the original product, calling the original “Coca – Cola Classic”, which resulted in a significant increase in sales.   2) There have always been numerous choices on the shelves of supermarkets, delis and restaurants offering different types of colas. However, I believe there are two brands that which started it all Coca-Cola and Pepsi. It is the two of these brands that through-out the years have created the most brand loyalty. The main reason for this divide between the two companies is the taste of the cola. Sure, there are a variety of colas on the market but if you asked most people they clearly have their favorite and vary rarely will drink the other unless there is no other alternative. Customers will buy Coca-Cola whether it is “on sale” or not. Creating different products to offer the consumer under the same brand allows a company to extend their line but give their customers different tastes to choose from. Coca-Cola launched Coke Zero which has a different taste from their......

While trying to select a facility, they may be turned off by terms such as old folks home and nursing home (Buchbinder & Shanks, 2012, p. 105).

If an inherited a million dollars and after paying off all my student loans, I decided I wanted to start a health enterprise, I would choose to work with individuals living with HIV. I have always felt an inclination toward people with HIV after learning that a close family member was diagnosed with the illness. Today in 2016, there is still a significant stigma surrounding HIV this is particularly the case in the African-American community. Lack of education contributes to the stigma surrounding HIV patients. Therefore, I would like to start a not profit organization that helps educate African- American communities about the prevention of HIV and how to destigmatize HIV. I would choose to focus on the African-American community because they currently have the highest rates of new infection; therefore, they display a need for additional need for education and preventative services. 6.

...the Salk vaccine; the other half received a placebo, in this case an injection of salt dissolved in water. Neither the children nor the doctors performing the diagnoses knew which children belonged to which group, but an evaluation center did. The center found that the incidence of polio was far less among the children in- occulated with the Salk vaccine. From that information, the re- searchers concluded that the vaccine would be effective in pre- venting polio for all U.S. school children; consequently, it was made available for general use. Answer: Experimental, because of the placebo. One group gets the vaccine and the other group gets the placebo. The variable which is changed in one group makes it an experiment.

...THE GLENCOE LITERATURE LIBRARY Study Guide for The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Benjamin Franklin i Meet Benjamin Franklin Benjamin thought that his older brother James was too hard on him, and they often fought. When his apprenticeship ended, Franklin went to Philadelphia. This city, far more than his birthplace of Boston, became Franklin’s home. In Philadelphia he established his own business and raised his family. After Franklin retired from business in 1748, he embarked on a new career as a civil servant. He served in the Pennsylvania Assembly and became deputy postmaster-general. Sent to England as a representative of the Assembly, he spent five years there. During that time, he made the acquaintance of statesmen and scientists alike. Years later, he returned to England and found himself caught up in the growing tension between the thirteen colonies and the British government. Franklin’s loyalties were divided. He felt affinities to the colonies and to King George II of England. When he could tolerate the British government’s policies toward the American colonies no longer, he sailed back to the colonies. By the time his ship arrived, the first battles of the American Revolution had already been fought. Franklin was chosen to serve on the Second Continental Congress, which, acting as the government for the colonies, declared independence from Britain and appointed George Washington as commander in chief of the American army. Franklin was one of......
