In order to earn the most money for supplemental school programs, we will have larger and more thrilling rides at this year's School Fair, including a ferry wheel that is twice as tall as last year's ferry wheel. In addition, the game vendors will award more expensive prizes and the food stalls will showcase a variety of upscale international dishes. As a result, we will be able to charge a higher entrance fee and the dollar amount we earn via our commission on the vendors' revenues will be higher than it was last year."

There is no evidence of correlation between investing more money in better rides, games, prizes and food and increased attendance,as such It would be foolish of the highschool to invest more money in them. It could very easily result in the loss of money for schools and supplemental school programs. Whether or not patrons would pay more for a ticket and vendors is a complicated and multifaceted question that requires actual research and cannot be answered with basic assumptions.

This argument speculates that low attendance at last year’s fair was related to people being dissatisfied with the rides, games, prizes and food at the fair. This however, was never proven with any polling of residents and it should be considered a logical fallacy to assume that there is any causation between the two events. Had a well designed poll been given to ask the residents if these were relevant concerns than it may be plausible to site causation.

This argument also makes the faulty speculation that even if people were dissatisfied with the rides, games, prizes and food that they would be willing to pay more if they were better. In order to draw that conclusion we would have to know how dissatisfied the patrons of the fair were and how important fixing these issues are to them. Their level of dissatisfaction is important because they may say they are…...

...important incidents in the Philippines that shaped the course of its history. These are events - both good and bad - that are equally important in nurturing and strengthening the solid foundation and sense of nationalism among the Filipinos. Prior to the Spanish colonization, the Philippines already enjoyed a rich culture and tradition, still evident among the indigenous peoples living up in the mountains or along the coast. For more than 300 years, the country was under the strong grip of the Spaniards – who abused and caused the death of many Filipinos. They introduced many colonial impositions, particularly regarding economy, such as polo y servicio, tobacco monopoly, tributary system, cedula personal, cash-crop economy and so on. However, despite all this, the Spaniards have also contributed so much in Philippine culture, language, education, architecture, Filipino mind sets and most importantly, the introduction of Christianity in the islands. By the 1900s, the Philippines became the only Southeast Asian country to be occupied, if not totally colonized, by the United States. They came to “civilize” us, justified by the so-called “Benevolent Assimilation” - educating the Filipinos, introducing to them what a civilization is like, and when all things are done, leaving them strong enough to rule their own country. However, their stay in the Philippines was marked by many tortures and bloody events, yet, they introduced a better system of education in the Philippines......

...It was one of the few events in my life that I felt totally compelled to attend .When Elijah and I had broken up two years ago ,it was an acrimoonious parting .We were both too young then to value the relationship and in the end ,decided we could eventually talk to each other in a civil manner before breaking up .Now he was going to be married to someone else ,and I was invited. I knew that my bossom friends were expecting me to turn down the invitation ,which made me even more determined to attend the ceremony .I felt that I was mature enough to handle such event and wanted to lie to rest the rumours about me still hurting after all this time.It was certainly an important event for me as it was golden opportunity to prove my strength once and for all. "My maturity was at stake!" I thought. On the day of the wedding,I woke up bright and early,determined not to be late.I had laid out my white dress which had been picked out the week before.I was going to look good and be gracious at the wedding.I could let "bygones be bygones," period. The sun shining in a clear blue sky and the rustle of leaves,as they brushed against each other on the gentle breeze,was like soothing music to my eras.When I left the house,there was still a good two hours before the wedding.I decided to go and window-shop at Queen Bay which was next to the church so as to be sure that I would be at the event on time. The shopping centre was particularly crowded at that time,being a......

...Tragic events are those events that causes great abruption and powerful impact, which ends up having a universal response from all the people (Arkkelin & Veitch, 1995). These types of events could be hurricanes such as hurricane Katrina, volcano eruptions, floods, or even disasters that are totally unexpected such as the airplane crash of September 11, 2001. The analysis after this traumatic event underlines the understanding of how individuals perceive, respond, or change their behavior when facing global threats. The plane crash of 9/11 caused a fear of uncertainty and left individuals wounded in realization that, indeed everyone is exposed to vulnerability and that even within our comfort zone, it takes few seconds for our whole lives to turn upside down. The article chosen for this analysis is of Bornstein & Hendricks (2007), which talks about the stress responses that were faced by adolescent living in the Washington area. The article will include adolescent perception, personal characteristics, and maternal characteristics. The Theoretical Basis of the Article This article sheds light on unique perspective as few studies have examined the after effects of war or natural disaster on adolescence from an ecological point of view. This article concentrates on maternal characteristics, personal characteristics, as well as the perception of the adolescent towards the primary giver (Bornstein & Hendricks, 2007). From a young age, a child will use same or similar...

Before her birth I was a carefree, immature party girl without a care in the world, after her birth I grew up stopped parting and took on the responsibility that was gifted to me. It has not been a stroll in the park more like a steep climb up a mountain, but it is not something that I would give up no matter how hard it can get. Before the birth of my daughter I was a carefree, immature party girl without a care in the world. I remember spending my days shopping at the mall, not worry about spending too much money. Spending my summer days at the beach of Myrtle beach, NC, going to amusement parks in KC and being at the clubs all night. I remember drinking and dancing the nights away with my friends. I remember just shopping, partying and having a good time. 13 years ago, September 19, 1998 it all changed, I gave birth to my daughter Carly. The day I went in to the hospital to give birth to her was a very exciting day, I checked into the hospital at 5:00 in the morning, they were going to induced me by 6:00 a.m. I remember lying there being so excited and just wanting to see her already. They came in and hooked me up to the IV'S I went 6 hours without feeling any pain, but being so bored just laying there, then the doctor came in and broke my water at 12:00 p.m. and that is when I......
