A Glass of Milk, Paid in Full

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.
He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”
He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.
Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.
Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.
She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”
Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly.…...

Glass Ceiling

...fight for their rights to work along men whether it was for paid or unpaid labor. Minorities have had to prove themselves to others to advance to a higher position. Sometimes after proving their skills and leadership abilities, the job or else the opportunity still does not get delivered. Minorities have been struggling to get notice in America for hundred of years. Many people have been paving the way for future advancement of people no matter the race, sex, or national origin. Whenever a minority has the opportunity and skills to advance in the workforce, but is not given a fair chance, this is commonly known as glass ceiling. According to the online database, Answers, glass ceiling refers to situations where the advancement of a qualified person within the hierarchy of an organization is stopped at a lower level because of some form of discrimination. This situation is in reference to the term glass ceiling because there are limitations of upward movement or advancement. The word glass comes from being transparent because the limitations are not immediately apparent and is normally an unwritten or unofficial policy. This barrier prevents large numbers of women, ethnic, and sexual minorities from obtaining and securing the most powerful, prestigious, and most gross job in the workforce (Glass Ceiling, 2007). The invisible barrier continues to exist, keeping minorities from acquiring advance job positions. The term glass ceiling is mostly put in context when it comes to......

The Glass Menagerie

...In The Glass Menagerie, Tennessee Williams creates a world full of delusion and fantasy in which the characters are able to ignore the present. Each character develops their own world, far away from reality where they escape to so often sometime it's as they don't realize it isn't real. May it be through the written word, beautiful lyrics and distracting figures, or looking in the past reliving happy times, these characters choose to create a world where they are each in control of their lives. Each family member in The Glass Menagerie lives in a fantasy world to escape the reality of their sad lives. The narrator, Tom, is a complex character. He finds his life to be restricting and boring. Tom feels, since his father left, a sense of responsibility for his mother and sister. Tom craves adventure and fun; he often has a warped sense of priorities. Every chance Tom gets while at work, he goes to the washroom and writes poetry. When Tom isn't working, and doesn't want to be at home, he again neglects his responsibility by going to the movies. This is seen when the lights go out and the Amanda finds that Tom hasn't paid the electric bill. “I go to the movies because - I like adventure. Adventure is something I don't have much of at work, so I go to the movies.” (1210) Though Tom seems bound to the petty world of supporting his family, his obsession with adventure leaves no time to concentrate on his responsibilities as the head of the household or at work. The matriarch of the...

...“The future becomes the present, the present the past, and the past turns into everlasting regret if you don’t plan for it” I can finally say I read the Glass Menagerie. And I loved it! Back in High School I never really thought it was great but it was everything. In the play The Glass Menagerie, many characteristics were shown in different people. There were primarily four main characters in the play: Amanda, Laura, Tom, and Jim. Each character had there own original issue in the story, which makes the play so entirely complex. What makes the play interesting is putting those characters together and creating inside moral and conflict. As a result, everybody still appears to be an “outcast in his or her own world” In every Tennessee William play he always uses symbolism in order to develop characters and to display the recurring themes of the play. These various symbols appear throughout the entire piece, and they are usually disguised as objects or imagery. The title The Glass Menagerie was named because of Laura’s glass animal collection. She had many different animals that symbolized your everyday people that she can not be a part of. One of the animals was a unicorn which was a “symbol of Laura” by representing the idea of being different. Laura was described to have a shy personality and would never attempt to make a change on her appearance to people. One of the main appearances she was embarrassed about was her crippled leg. Since she is already shy, this adds......

...Jacob Jones PSY 290 Milk Ads The ad I chose is one of the most successful Got Milk? Line of advertising, this provides several options for the designers to play with, in conjunction with the layouts and therein, their connotation. Featuring Aerosmith's Steve Tyler, the ad is a picture window with a relatively humorous connotation. The slang copy with unfinished words such as "growing'’ reflect the laid-back attitude exhibited by the star, and is meant to refer to younger audiences who speak the same kind of dialect. Her sitting position also exhibits how the jeans claim to stretch, as she looks comfortable and laid-back in bare feet. Her young yet mature age is also relevant to the audience, being that the magazine is aimed at an audience of women in their late teens and twenties. The physical positioning of Tyler's hands draw the viewer's attention inwards towards the milk mustache and his also famous kisser. The advertisement industry is a clever one, with several tricks to catch and simultaneously fool the eye, all the while achieving the overall previously mentioned effect. This forces the reader to look twice, to discern the sex of the featured model, and also to return to confirm the familiarity of the specific face. Following our current path, we return back down the other side of the leg to the waist of the jeans, where we see the woman's bellybutton is pierced, meaning to emphasize just how low the jeans truly are. Because our eyes naturally......

...the saying "Drink your milk to have strong bones" but what if that weren't the case. What if all that we've been told wasn't nessicarly the truth. Next time you take a sip of the moo juice really think about what you are digesting. Cow's milk gets put through many rigorous things before it hits the shelfs and makes it's way into your fridge. Drinking cow's milk can lead to harmful and dangerous side effects. In order to produce milk the cows are fed antibiotics and steroids. These are needed to fight out diseases that the cow might get. Many cows get mastitis, which is an infection of the udder. In order to treat this infections cows are given certain antibiotics that are made for cows use only. However, the antibiotics make their way into their milk and contaminate it. Most of the time the antibiotic isn't caught until it's too late and sent to the collection facility contaminating the whole batch. Canada has found that a constant low-level exposure to antibiotics leads to allergies in some individuals. (Butler). The steroids that cows are given are to boost milk growth and volume. These steroids are still completely unknown on what they do to the human body. Some say that they can be linked to cancers. (Cohan). Another thing that factors in to the pre-paturazation is pregnant cows. "According to Dr. Frank Oski, former head of pediatrics at John Hopkins University and author of Don’t Drink Your Milk, 80 percent of lactating cows are pregnant. The milk from these cows is......

Milk Production

...In rural areas, milk may be processed fresh or sour. The choice depends on available equipment, product demand and on the quantities of milk available for processing. In Africa, smallholder milk-processing systems use mostly sour milk. Allowing milk to ferment prior to processing has a number of advantages and processing sour milk will continue to be important in this sector. Where greater volumes of milk can be assembled, processing fresh milk gives more product options, allows greater throughput of milk and, in some instances, greater recovery of milk solids in product. Because of differences between processing systems, each will be dealt with separately. The section on fresh-milk technology deals with techniques used for processing fresh milk in batches of up to 500 litres. Sour-milk technology is used for processing batches of up to 15 litres of accumulated sour milk. This will be described in the section on sour-milk technology. Fresh Milk Technology This section describes the manufacture of skim milk, cream, butter, butter oil, ghee, boiled-curd and pickled cheese varieties and fermented milks from fresh milk. The processing scale envisaged is 100 to 200 litres of milk per day. However, the processes described are suitable for batches of up to 500 litres per day. Most of the equipment described can be fabricated locally. Equipment not available locally, such as a milk separator, has a cost advantage and quickly gives a good financial return in terms of increased......

...political leader? Harvey Milk is a prime example of this situation. Based on a true story, Milk is a 2008 film directed by Gus Van Sant on an American gay activist who struggles for gay rights. It all started in the 1970’s when he lived in New York opening a camera shop, Castro Camera, which becomes the store for San Francisco’s increasing gay community. Throughout the process Milk organizes gays to pull together upon political coalition. Milk moves to San Francisco while running for office with his significant other Scott Smith as his campaign director. Harvey Milk runs several times for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and finally wins. Milk became the first openly gay man to be selected in politics. I agree with this inspiring film on a gay activist with passion who came through showing the world it doesn’t matter who you are, become what you want. As I compared my life to the film, I realized I have a certain someone that goes through some of the same cruelty day to day. I grew up with a brother who came out when he was a sophomore. This was a big issue where I come from because my town is very stereotyped. I’m from a small town where if you were different from everyone else, you were very easily judged by everything you did. Therefore, it was a very difficult process for my family and I to accept. We all had to cope with the challenges that came along. As I continued to watch the movie, I saw several comparisons that related from Milk to my brother. They are......

...Milk, Healthy or Not? Since a young age, we’ve been trained to believe that drinking milk is “necessary in order to obtain strong bones and teeth.” For decades, this claim has been supported by several nutritionists, scientists, and doctors; who recommend 3 servings of milk or dairy products a day. But, recent studies have brought people to question this statement. On the contrary to all the supporters of milk, other scientists and nutritionists debate this allegation with the belief that milk has its negative effects and can cause severe health risks. Milk has both healthy and unhealthy qualities but you have to determine which qualities you find more important for yourself. Each type of milk contains a different variety of nutrients which aid the body to function correctly. This product provides a great balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrates; all of which are very important sources of essential nutrients. These nutrients include calcium,, phosphorus, riboflavin, and Vitamins A & D. As we’ve all been told, calcium is essential for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. In association with calcium, phosphorus is an essential macronutrient in the human diet. Like calcium, phosphorus is found in bones and teeth, where it’s essential to maintain the structure. Although less than phosphorus, riboflavin, (also known as Vitamin B2), is also important for body growth. More importantly, riboflavin is necessary for red blood cell production and the......

...strive for top management positions and are unable to attain them. In a recent study almost three-fourths of women and two-thirds of men believe that an invisible barrier (a glass ceiling) prevents women from attaining top management positions. In this report we have tried to find out the barriers causing women advancement in organizational top levels referred to as “Glass Ceiling.” We have conducted our research among some of the top level organizations which are United International University (UIU), MERCANTILE BANK Limited (MBL), Islamic Bank Limited (IBL), and Mutual Trust Bank Limited (MTBL). Without their support we couldn’t have completed this report. Here we have conducted research about some of the factors which correspondents have identified as the major factors. The main intention of this report was to find out the actual barriers (if there is any) causing women to stand back in line, although they are well qualified to move up in the line. Based on the responses of the participants\correspondents we have tried to put up this report. 1. Introduction In this era of globalization women are close to dominating every field of work they are in. They are equally capable of carrying out any work they are assigned with. But due to the term “Glass Ceiling” women are somewhat left behind. “Glass Ceiling” refers to invisible barriers that impede the career advancement of women. It also refers to situations where the advancement of a qualified person within the......

...Reynaldo Holguin PSYC3019 Dr. Christopher Jones February 19, 2015 Response Paper Milk For this response paper, we learned about the movie "Milk". He was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in the state of California. Going forward with these questions: I feel that people should not be arrested for being gay, everyone has a right in this country to be an outspoken. It's one thing for our laws and another for God's Laws. With that we are not to judge of what is happening on earth when it comes to God's Law. Harvey and Scott shows their affection in front of the store, because another business man had warned them about being openly gay people will be arrested and maybe placed out of business. Not just people were carrying whistles, but Gay people were carrying whistles to warn other gays of police or any type of mob that came into the streets. There were a few things why Harvey got elected after his few failures, he used Anita Bryant's crusade that provided to gays to group together in other parts of the country, used the expertise of Ann Kronenberg to spread in newspapers of his vision and to bring hope in the state. When gays were coming out her reaction was to start a crusade in Dade County to protect homosexuals from getting jobs and housing. Harvey had said after the election what Bryant had said "There is a draught in California". After so many failures, Harvey decided to run again, and Scott could not deal with more......
