Mule Killers

...Progress Does Not Always Lead to a Better Life Life, in the primitive sense of the word, means moving through time towards inevitable death. Progression, by definition, means development towards a destination or more advanced state. Life in the emotional aspect explores love, and with love there will always be shortcomings and complexities. Progression, life, destruction, and love are themes in the short story Mule Killers by Lydia Peelle. The short story is a story within a story, and it is first person narration from the point of view of a son retelling the story of his father and his grandfather. The story thereby tells the stories of three different generations of men. The setting is in Nashville Tennessee, the time period is not certain but from the events and descriptions it appears to be during the brink of industrialization. The element of progress in Mule Killers is seen in the family’s life story, the father’s effort to reach adulthood, and - as a parallel story -  industrialization; progress is portrayed not only in the stories of the father and grandfather but also in the depiction of the development of the society. In the very beginning, it is clear that the main character’s father has a hard time time coping with his emotions, particularly his immaturity, and striving to progress to a stable future. In the first paragraph where the author introduces the character, the son’s father, he describes him as: “my father has his father’s height, and he carries......

Zodiac Killer

...Zodiac Killer Saturday, November 12, 2011 Zodiac Killer The Zodiac killer was a serial killer who committed his homicides in Northern California in the late 1960s. His identity was never discovered; he self named himself in a series of letters which were sent to the press in regards to his killings. The letters he sent included multiple cryptographs, some of which remain unsolved. The Zodiac killer murdered victims in the cities of Vallejo, Lake Berryessa, and San Francisco in the years 1968 and 1969. Although there are only seven confirmed victims from his criminal acts, there are thirty seven homicides which the Zodiac killer claimed to have committed. On August 1, 1969, three letters were delivered to the Vallejo Times-Herald, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the San Francisco Examiner. The letters were sent from an unknown individual and unknown address. In the material presented by the letters the writer claimed to have committed the homicide of multiple victims. Each letter also included a piece of a cryptograph which the writer stated that it contained his identity. The writer demanded for the cryptographs to be published on the paper’s front page the next day or he would “cruse all weekend killing lone people in the night then move on to kill again, until I end up with a dozen people over the weekend.” On August 7, 1969, another letter was delivered to the San Francisco Examiner in which the......

Nick Vujicic

...I found Nick Vujicic's video "I love living life, I am happy" to be truly inspirational and extremely passionate. He is a man, without a doubt in my mind, that is truly happy. I believe every word that the man had said pertaining to his own happiness. He himself has over-come so many external obstacles, that we as people, that have arms and legs, wouldn't think twice about having to worry about on a DAILY basis. Vujicic has turned so many external obstacles, walking, dressing himself, walking up stairs, learning how to swim and golf all without using any arms, nor legs, and turned them into external motivation which then has motivated him internally. Imagine daily life without the use of arms or legs, it's nearly impossible to even perceive for me at this point, and he does it everyday. He is thankful for being alive, he is not bitter nor vidictive towards his short-comings. He is an extremely humble man, having overcome many doubts and fears, being able to stand without any arms or legs, that really got to me. He also didn't have one negative thing to say about his life during the whole video, to my knowledge. He knew who he was and he was in complete control of his own life, doing things he loved, being a motivational speaker, being as happy as I could possibly perceive another human being to be. He is without a doubt one of the most influential self-motivational speaker's that I have ever seen in my life....

Nick Saban

...Nick Saban If Nick Saban were running a company instead of a football program, he would be a top manager. Alabama football is big business, and it will continue to get bigger under Saban. “In 2006, the year before he arrived in Tuscaloosa, the athletic department brought in $67.7 million in revenue, mostly from football, and spent $60.6 million. Last year revenue was $124.5 million and expenditures were $105.1 million -- leaving a $19.4 million profit, according to figures compiled by USA Today. During Saban's tenure, Alabama has expanded the capacity of Bryant-Denny Stadium from 92,000 to 101,000, including the addition of new luxury (i.e., more expensive) seating”(O'Keefe, 2012). It was an obvious decision for the school to give him a two-year contract extension along with a significant raise earlier last year. With a salary package that averages $5.6 million a year over the next eight years, Saban is among the highest paid coaches in college football. “Nick Saban, the undisputed emperor of college football, has everything he could ever want in Tuscaloosa: Three national titles in four seasons; a great shot at another one a year from now; the best players; no static from anyone, including the browbeaten reporters who cover him; and the whole world kissing his feet”(Silver, 2013). Nick Saban is no doubt one of the best college football coaches in America. His passion, work ethic, persistence, and humility have got him to where he is today. These characteristics started......

Zodiac Killer

...Deanna Brooks Mr. Ogletree English 1101-10142 March 22, 2012 The Zodiac Killer The Zodiac Killer is as unknown today as he was in the 1970's. It is said that the Zodiac killer is Arthur Allan, though we cannot in any way prove this theory. The zodiac killer was a murderer that seemed to have a serious mental condition, which needed treating, but appears as if he could not control it. The Zodiac killer is a man that committed a series of murders during 1930’s to about the 1970’s. To plainly put it he was a serial killer. Many have wondered if he was locked up in jail somewhere or sitting back waiting to strike again, he would be very old if this was the case. There are many accounts of the murders. Though some people ended up changing their story, or too much happened and they are still in shock so they have trouble remembering, or they could be trying to block the memory. In most of his killings it seems to be the same, a young couple, kills the girl completely, but leaves the guy just, enough to talk to the police then he dies. I think this means he wants someone to still be able to talk about him. There was one account I read about where he did not kill anyone, Butterfield stated that, He writes letters to the police and the have to unscramble it. He seems to put a lot of time into his letters and his killings, in other words a “psycho-path”. The zodiac killer a time seems to have a moment of sanity and some letters had asked for help, but those moments did not...

Nick Adams

...Nick Adams’ Journey to Recovery In the story “Big Two-Hearted River” by Ernest Hemingway, Nick Adams is a young man recovering from traumatic experiences he suffered during his past wartime experiences. Nick seems to be an outdoorsman and throughout the story, his mental recovery progresses and he begins to leave behind some tragic experiences from his past by escaping civilization and completely immersing himself in what he knows- nature. Nick’s escape from civilization into nature is not only a physical journey but a journey of healing and self renewal from his traumatic experiences. His journey allows him to first retreat into physical activity in order to clear his mind, begin to process and accept his traumas, and eventually return to himself and civilization. At the beginning of Nick’s excursion, the narrator describes, in detail, Nick’s actions as he goes about his trip. In doing so, the narrator focuses on Nick’s physical actions rather than focusing on Nick’s thoughts and feelings. He allows the readers to see that Nick is avoiding his emotions and is allowing himself to be absorbed in his physical activity as a form of therapy. By returning to nature and activities he is familiar with, Nick can just go through the motions without letting his thoughts and feelings surface: “He felt he left everything behind, the need for thinking, the need to write, other needs. It was all back of him.” (210) Here the narrator shows Nick attempting to escape from civilization and...

Killers

...Killers What does it take for someone to end a human life? There are many studies and specialists that center themselves on this question. Is it a lack of self-control? Do murderers have a distorted understanding of morals, ethics, and basic “do’s and don’ts” of traditional society? One of the most common motives for murder is anger and vengeance. In the short stories “A Rose for Emily” and “Killers,” the main characters exhibit similar motives for the murders they commit. Both people were pushed over the edge by the loss of someone close to them. They were pushed to the point of taking a human life. In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily,” Emily, a scorned and lonely woman murdered her lover because the thought of being alone was too much to handle. Emily also kept the body of her dead lover locked in a room for forty years. Not only did she kill her lover Homer, she stored his dead body in bed so she could lay with him every night. Why would a woman kill the man she loves? In the story, her lover was about to leave her and he was the only person in Emily’s life. Her controlling father was already dead, she had no family, and the town constantly gossiped about her. When her lover, Homer Barron, was going to leave her she felt betrayed. If he really loved her, why would he leave? Who was he leaving her for? He wanted to be free from her, and the best way to get back at someone who wants their freedom is to trap them. However, Emily took it one step to far.......

Nick at Night

...block with their next evolution of MTV- and Nickelodeon-style imagery and bumpers. Head programmer Debby Beece led the team to the name "Nick at Nite" for the new block; a logo originally conceived for the block was based on Nickelodeon's "pinball" logo introduced in 1981, which was discontinued with that network's rebrand. Fred/Alan developed the original logo with Tom Corey and Scott Nash of Boston advertising firm Corey McPherson Nash, creators of the well-recognized Nickelodeon orange logo (Nick at Nite's logo design would maintain a separate visual appearance from its parent network). Nick at Nite debuted at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on July 1, 1985, as a block on Nickelodeon. Its initial programming (running from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., seven days a week) was a mix of sitcoms, movies and one drama series, led by Dennis The Menace, and accompanied by The Donna Reed Show, the offbeat comedy Turkey Television (which, like Dennis, also aired on Nickelodeon), and Route 66. A nightly film presentation, branded as the Nick at Nite Movie, aired at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time through the end of the decade, and included such classic films as the 1947 film The Red House and the 1937 film A Star is Born. The same five-hour block of programs originally repeated from 1:00 a.m. and ran until Nickelodeon began its broadcast day at 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time. As Nick at Nite grew, it would add to its library of shows – branching out to rerun sketch comedy, such as episodes from the early seasons......

...SOCI 2040 6.0G Sociological Theory TA: Jonathan Adjemian Nick Kozlowski Symbolic Interactionnalism and Dramaturgy: Goffman and Russel Hochschild Goffman is known for the development of dramaturgy, which approaches social life in the sense one would observe a play. When individuals meet, they read each other’s information to bring preconceived understanding into play. Information they are interested in are general socio-economic status, their conception of self, attitude, competence, trustworthiness, etc. Information about the individual is obtained so that the situation can be defined, allowing prediction of what will happen next, and to understand the situation. The term performance refers to all activity of an individual that is observed by an “audience”. The individual gives meaning to themselves through this performance as well as giving impressions to others, which are them reflected back to the individual. For example, a teacher who gives a poor lecture may reflect on himself through the bored reaction of his students. Setting is where such an interaction takes place, different settings have different actors which may lead an individual to act differently. We act differently around friends then we would in a professional workplace, or may act differently based simply on who is present. Appearance is meant to portray to the audience the performer’s social status, social state or role, which can be determined by uniform, gender, age, etc. Goffman describes 3......

Killer Bees

...Killer Bees Russell Montoya Eastern New Mexico University Killer Bees Introduction Many people around the world are familiar with the rap group Wu tang Clan and their nick-name the “killa bees” but people don’t really know much about the bees they are actually named after. The Africanized Honey Bee are the original name given to these bees but they have been deemed with name “killer bees”. The book titled “Killer Bees. The Africanized Honey Bee in the Americas” defines the killer bee as, “crosses of European races of Apis mellifera with the more aggressive African subspecies, A. m. scutellata” (1992). These bees originated in South Africa but in the 1950’s Brazil brought some in for honey production after which swarms escaped and traveled to the Americas and ultimately arrived in North America in 1985. Today they are mostly used for the pollination of honey in the southern states of America. Cause of Problem The difference between the Africanized honey bee and other bees is their aggressiveness. This causes a problem because these bees tend to attack and express more aggressive behavior than any other bees. Africanized honey bees traits according to Columbia.edu are "a highly defensive nature, responding more quickly and more bees sting, sensing a threat from a person or animas 50 feet or more from their nest, and perusing a perceived enemy ¼ mile or more” (2002). One can see how these bees are perceived different than other bees. Their angry behavior......

...Nick Gill The Creative Director. I chose to write about Nick Gill as to my opinion he is the most interesting figure in Advertising industry.I guess it also because I get a chance to meet and work with his team on one of the commercials for the Lynx. Which was absolutely amazing experience. (http://uk.adforum.com/creative-work/ad/player/34485218) This commercial was a part of a massive and extensive Axe Apollo Campaign, (http://uk.adforum.com/creative-work/ad/player/34489021) where they decided to sent an ordinary guy to the space as a part of vision of the Axe/Lynx Brand. This shows an exceptional thinking an originality of ideas of BBH Agencyand Nick Gill contribution as part of it, with cooperation with Unilever Company. It definitely gave a Brand an enormous exposure and took advertising to a completely new level. One of the newest Axe campaigns that Nick Gill is taking credit for, could be found here :http://www.adweek.com/adfreak/never-thought-wed-see-heres-axe-ad-has-two-men-kissing-162360 What is so contradictory and slightly shocking, is that at some point, a main character is kissing a girl,and a second later he is kissing a guy. That is something that we never saw on TV commercial before. Thats a break through, that is when rules get broken, that when the fun begins. As few of the industry life mantras that Nick is believing into is : being an open-minded, break the rules, and stay young! I would like to starwith t taking a deeper insight into the......

Nick has been complaining of having this clumsiness, dizziness when he sits or stands says his feet feels like their burning and feels like they are being pricked and he has vision problems. These symptoms are both sensory and motor. 2. If these symptoms were caused by the central nervous system the symptoms would be more severe his receptors are not effectively communicating back to the central nervous system with the symptoms that he have yes he could have had peripheral nerve damage. He also has damage to his somatic nervous system due to the loss of his somatic reflexes in his feet. 3. The sensory neuron is where Nick’s reflex arc damage begins. The receptor is being triggered by the stimuli and the information can’t travel along the damaged sensory neuron to continue the arc to the centers, motor neurons effectors and the damage could be further along the reflex arc giving the exact same symptoms. 4. The sympathetic division would be active which would inhibit the G.I. tract which leads to the parasympathetic division of his nervous system being affected. 5. The parasympathetic and sympathetic division of the ANS connects to the hypothalamus by the neurons in the brain and spinal cord and relay information. The lateral and posterior parts of the hypothalamus controls the sympathetic division which constrict blood vessels and raise blood pressure.

Nick Vujicic

... Nick was born in Melbourne, Australia, on December 4, 1982. His birth was a big shock for every single person of his family. He had no limbs: no legs and no arms. The doctors couldn’t find any reason why that happened. Nick’s dad was a priest. People who he led in church were very sad. They gave sympathy to Nick’s dad and helped strengthen him. But they started to ask themselves, if God is love potion, why did he allow this kind of thing to happen to obedient people like Nick’s parents? At first, Nick’s dad thought that his little baby wouldn’t have a long life. But Nick proved them all wrong. Although he wasn’t like most babies, he was a very healthy baby. This fact made people worry about Nick’s future. When Nick began his study at school, he always tried to live like other kids, though at first he had to face refusals and mockeries from them. Unlimited love and prayers from his parents made Nick strong and then he could pass hard times. Slowly, his friends accepted Nick the way he was. God sent him new friends to accompany him. From his dad, Nick learned that God always loves and takes care of every single person. But his child’s mind asked about the truth of that theory. He realized that among all of his friends, he looked so weird, and he was frustrated. He felt that he was unworthy, and he would always be a trouble for people around him. He fell into a deep depression and finally, he believed that the best solution was to leave this world as soon as he could. Nick......

Mule Killers

...Mule Killers by Lydia Peelle This is a story about unrequited love and its consequences and the change from child to adult. Time changes and life goes on. Whether people accept the changes and might takes advantage of the possibilities given to them, but people make mistakes, especially when they are young and in love. Will it be a bump on the road or will it change the direction they are heading. These are some of the themes that the short story “Mule Killers” is dealing with. Mule Killers is told by a narrator, who is telling the story of his father meeting his mother. It is a son telling about his father telling his son what happened the year he was 18 and the mule killers came. So the story takes place in two times, the present where the father and the son are picking asparagus in the garden and the past where the life of the father was changed for good. It all takes place in a farming area in America at the time where modern machinery reached the farms in Nashville. Tractors started to take over the farm and were therefore setting mules out of work. The narrator’s grandfather “…goes to Nashville and buys two International Harvester tractors for eighteen hundred dollars, cash…” (Page 9, line 13-14) The father is in the sons telling an 18-year-old teenager meaning that he is a little uncertain and confused about growing up, and with small ability to express his feelings towards other people. The uncertainty and suppression of his feelings will later in the short......

Serial Killers

...Serial Killer Psychology By Anna Davis Criminal psychology refers to the study of the mental and behavioral characteristics of people who break laws established by local, state, national or international governments. Some criminal, or forensic, psychologists focus their research on serial killers -- men and women who murder a large number of people over an extended period of time — typically months or years. What constitutes a serial killer is open to interpretation. In the United States, Congress has defined a serial killer as someone who murders a minimum of three or more people. By definition, a cooling-off period separates the murders, making them appear random or unconnected. The victims — often prostitutes, runaways or other vulnerable populations — rarely know their killer and may serve as a symbol that triggers the attack. In other words, a serial killer's motive tends to be psychological, not material. Understanding what goes on — or gets turned off — in a serial killer's mind is the ultimate goal of scientists who specialize in this area of psychology. You might think the field is relatively new, but it dates back to at least the 19th century, when psychologists tried to develop a profile of the mysterious and elusive Jack the Ripper. Antisocial Personality Disorder vs. Psychopathy Mental health professionals use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), developed by the American Psychiatric Association, to understand the......
