Blue Devil

... “The Blue Devil” I remember when I was a child my mother owned a very special family van. It was a blue Chevrolet Astro that took us everywhere we needed to be. Every morning, on the way to school, he would fly in the air as we went over the speed bumps in the road. I couldn’t wait until the next morning to do it all over again. I’d fallen in love with this van until he started to change on us. He started to surprise us in the most evil ways he could think of and as a result, we started to call him the blue devil. Every summer our family would drive to South Carolina for a vacation. The blue devil did fine on the way to our destination, but when we were leaving he gave us a very hard time. The air condition wouldn’t work and it was a very hot summer day. He knew that we needed the air conditioning but he wanted us to suffer in the hot sun. Everyone was burning up from the heat. My mother tried to turn the air condition back on, but he wouldn’t allow her to. We started to open the windows so we could get a breeze, but it would only row down half way. While we were still in route to our home the blue devil had another surprise for us. The right rear tire suddenly blew out and the blue devil started to swerve all over the road. We finally pulled onto the shoulder and stopped. We spent about an hour and a half in the hot sun while my stepfather changed the blue devil’s tire. I was scared to ride in the blue devil again after what had happen.......

An Encounter with the Devil

...mass murderers. Sweet talking and being attractive men makes girls melt into their hearts. The murderers themselves can knowledge on what the girls are interested in, for example, which has the same interest in music taste, food, sports that's how girls mind twisting. This technique works well because it shows the "interest" to call the murderers have for them. This story in some way reveals the bad influence that some people can be. Critic Gillis, Christina Marsden states, “Arnold must symbolize Satan and Connie must be raped and murdered”. It can practically be said that Connie knew the dark side at the precise moment she first looked at Arnold Field. Joan Wislows calls the story “An encounter with de Devil.” Although could be said that Arnold is the reincarnation of the devil in this story, I believe it is a bit more complex than this idea. The two Connie´s personalities represents the good girl, and the other one the dark and the wild one. This means that maybe in some sense this wild personality was waiting for this to happen, because she dreamed it every day....

Aspect of culture in Runway fashion magazine company via “Devil wears Prada”. 1. The basic, underlying assumptions As the film shown, all decisions were made by Miranda, the editor-in-chief.

The Devil Wears Prada Organizational Behavior

...Introduction The movie “The devil wears Prada” had a variety of characters with distinct personalities and perspectives to different situations. The characters that I will analyze in this paper include Andy Sachs, Miranda Priestly, Emily and Nigel. However I will also talk about Christian Thompson, Irv the owner of Runway and Andy’s boyfriend Nate. Reflective Portion The first situation that I think is worth mentioning is when Miranda is stuck in Miami due to a hurricane. It was crucial for Miranda to get back to New York because the “twins” had a recital. As a result of this situation, Miranda contacted Andy to look for another alternative to travel. Miranda looks at this stimulus in a way that I suppose no one else would, as she kept true to her dominant, dramatic and contentious communicating style. She remains dramatic by under-exaggerating the weather condition, dominant and contentious by not giving Andy any other option but to look for a flight on that vary same night. Andy on the other hand tried to get control over the situation by remaining calm at first however, when she realized that she was in a tough situation, she started to panic. As a neutral observer I was able to see a drift in Andy’s perspective and personality in this scene. In a way I believe that Miranda put her employees in a tough situation specifically because she likes to see work get done the way she want it and not how the other wants. I do not think the behavior that Miranda posses in......

Sympathy for the Devil

...Sympathy for the Devil The devil wails up from the toe of an overboot stashed deep in a dark closet, or does he? High up on the prairie hill do the nuns lambaste the young girls because of the darkness of the devil within them or because the children are displaying the last vestiges of their Native American heritage? In Louise Erdrich’s Love Medicine, Marie Lazarre is forced to confront a meeting of two cultures. What the reader initially sees as a struggle between good and evil transforms into a battle between religion and heritage. Marie enters the convent knowing of the “darkness” inside her, yet in her naiveté and ignorance “the length of the sky…pure and wide” (43) do not allow her to realize the implications of her inner “darkness” in her future. Under Sister Leopolda’s watchful eye, any minute “comings and goings” (45) of the girls’ native ways become a reason for punishment and agony. Marie’s attempts to succeed under Leopolda’s regime only lead to her regression back to the Native American strength and stoicism that have become a source of evil in the eyes of the nuns. Restrained in the closet, Marie calls upon “the Dark One to enter [her]…and restrain [her tears]” (47) yet she tries in vain. Gradually, Leopolda’s endeavors to purge each girl of her heathen heritage slowly wear away at Marie’s strength and resilience. Leopolda offers Marie two paths by which to lead the rest of her life, to “marry a no-good Indian, bear his brats, and die like a dog” (48) or......

Organisational Behaviour Elements on the Devil Wears Prada

...The Devil Wears Prada” Analysis As with nearly any group, organizations contain and operate among many different dynamics. Within these dynamics emerges the potential for creativity, diversity, teamwork, exploration, and success. Included in those dynamics, however, is also the potential for dangerous and/or unhealthy practices, which ultimately effect not only the organization but the individuals within the organization as well. Caustic or authoritative managed organizations can also attain success within a negative atmosphere. In fact some organizations thrive on these types of tactics to remain competitive in a particular industry. A fictitional example of this type of organization and the dynamics found within the organization can be found in the film “The Devil Wears Prada.” This essay will review and analyze the organizational structure within the magazine “Runway,” in the film. The film industry is filled with examples of the benefits of teams, the collective process, and success attained when working toward a common goal. On the other side of the spectrum, however, is “The Devil Wears Prada,” which provides illustration of potentially harmful and aggressive managerial practices used for the purpose of attaining perfection, esteem, and notoriety at all costs. One of the most constant themes within the film is the aggressive and tyrannical behavior of the Meryl Streep character Miranda, who is the boss at the magazine. Her expectations are so high,...

God and the Devil

...God and the Devil have an impact on the human race, because God and the Devil have a shared goal to give people two choices in life God and the devil both origininated in heaven. God made the heavens, earth and the angels. In particular he made he made an angel named Lucifer. Lucifer was the lead angel and was the most beautiful angel. Lucifer was also was the lead angel over music. God made the angels to serve him and to help with humanity. God created humans and loved them. Lucifer became jealous of Gods rule. He did not like the creation of humanity. He did not want to serve humanity. Lucifer felt humans were beneath the angels. Lucifer then persuaded other angels to join his idealism. Lucifer began a war in heaven. Lucifer and his angels were defeated. They were then cast out of heaven. With his betrayal to God’s plan he was exiled to hell. The contrasts between these two entities are very easy to make. The likeness between these two entities is a little harder, but nevertheless they do have similarities. God and the Devil are similar because they both make an impact and can affect the human race. God wants you to accept him and give you free will to make your own choices in life. God lets you make the choices in your life but he warns you to stay away from the ways of Lucifer. Humans should cleanse themselves and stay away from evil. The devil will also use free will as a tool. He does not cause you to do bad things. Humans do evil all on their own. Lucifer just sets......

Devil Wears Prada

...Melissa Learish Mrs. Rutt-Houser AP Senior English: Period 2 14 April 2015 The Devil [and I] Wears Prada It is every girl’s dream to graduate college, move to the big city, and risk everything in order to fulfill their dream. In fields such as writing, publishing, and editing, one must be willing to start from the bottom in order to claw their way to the top. One must take any job available to them that will potentially create powerful connections to help pursue their goals. Andrea Sachs is no exception. Fresh out of college, she acquires a job in New York City that every person trying to break in to the fashion industry would die to have: junior personal assistant to the editor in chief of Runway magazine, Miranda Priestly. Ironically enough, Miranda is anything but “priest”-ly. She takes advantage of Andrea, forcing her to complete humiliating, impossible tasks for her. To make matters worse, Andrea does not exactly fit the image of someone working at Runway magazine in terms of her mentality and her physical appearance. Awkward, a size six (practically obese in her line of work), and at the bottom of the corporate food chain, she is less than thrilled to be put into this position. However, she keeps her goal in mind, and this encourages her to put on a happy face as she absorbs the torment she receives from her colleagues. Outside of the office, Andrea lives with her boyfriend. The stress of Andrea (Andy)’s job takes its toll on their......

Devils Tower

...Devils Tower is a well-known rock formation raised high above the Ponderosa Pine Forest in Crook Country Wyoming. As part of the black hills range the formation is a sacred part of the Native American tribes that live there. Several Sioux and Kiowa legends surround the site with very similar story lines. Apparently while youth were playing in the area a large bear tried to attack them but they prayed to the Great Spirit who then caused the rock to grow from the earth to separate them from the bear. The bear tried to claw his way to the youth which is why the formation has its long claw like contour. In reality Devils Tower, now a national monument was formed by cooled and solidified lava that forms under the earth’s surface by pushing its way up from deep within the earth through any cracks or spaces it can. This process can take millions of years to occur. Like Devils Tower many mountain ranges are formed by intrusive igneous rock that has crystalized into minerals. Although the formation of Devils Tower is not known several hypotheses about its formation circle the scientific community. Some believe the tower was formed from a volcanic plug and the materials such as volcanic ash, lava and debris has long since eroded away leaving only the plug with the volcano completely gone over time. The volcano hypothesis is based mainly upon the oval shaped mesa or elevated land area that surround the tower. Other hypotheses suggest that it formed under ground as......

Casual Wear

...Michelle Lyda Jessica Hutchman English 113 9 November 2011 Casual Wear In the fast-paced world of today’s news and media, the true meaning and emotion of many leading stories is lost in the endless reel of current events. James Merrill constructs his poem, “Casual Wear,” in a similar fashion; the first eight lines of the poem distantly describe a female tourist and a male terrorist, not as people, but as statistics. It is only in the final two lines of the poem that Merrill injects any emotion into the work and connects the two seemingly unrelated individuals. In “Casual Wear,” Merrill uses contrasting viewpoints to convey both the resolution of the terrorist and the direness of the death of the tourist. Most of “Casual Wear” focuses on “your average tourist” and “your average terrorist;" it is not until the last two lines that the poem reveals, indirectly, that the terrorist is responsible for killing the woman, who is given the title, in the last two words of the poem, “wife” (Merrill 907). The unexpected outcome provides the reader with the fierce shock of reality on a personal level. Since the only name given to the woman is “wife” and the odds were “1 to 910 against her strolling past the Embassy,” the reader is given the impression that this is something that could happen to anyone, anywhere (Merrill 907). The shift in tone from detached to very personal provides the reader with the stark contrast between a generalized newscast and the very personal level on...

Devil on the Cross

...rises from the title of the novel throughout its whole text. In his dissertation “The Metaphor of Devil and Cross in Ngugi-Wa-Thiong’o’s Devil on the Cross” under the researcher’s supervision, Nvunabandi Byamana (2010) tried to show that more than what everybody would be led to put at first sight of this title, that ‘Devil’ and ‘Cross’ are mere symbols, they can be constructed into metaphors after a careful reading of the novel. The findings show that the following metaphors would be correct if based on the novel’s analysis:  Colonialism was a devil.  Capitalism is a devil.  Imperialism is a devil.  Neocolonialism is a devil.  Independence was a cross.  Communism is a cross.  Unity is a cross. But the title of Ngugi’s novel ‘Devil on the Cross’ draws attention to itself and raises some queries whether the devil he is talking about :  is on the cross;  was on the cross;  has been put on the cross; or  should be put on the cross. The opening of the book, however, unfolds this initial ambiguity by specifying that the devil should be put on the cross by the oppressed class: thus my interest in the topic because the title appears as an invitation to crucify the devil and this justifies the title of the paper, Devil on the Cross: Ngugi’s Marxist Invitation. Still, after agreeing that the title is an invitation, there is need to know who is/are invited to crucify the devil and how they should proceed to crucify him. The analysis in the whole paper seeks to......

The Devi Wears Prada Essay

...The Devil Wears Prada Essay By: Winnet The movie version of “The Devil Wear Prada” is superior to the novel because it explains the different types of stereotypes dealt with better, it is more visually appealing, and it is easier to connect to the characters. The movie itself is overflowing with different types of stereotypes. An example would be when Nigel tells Andy that” as a child, he told his family he was attending soccer practice when he was really taking sewing lessons, and read Runway under the covers of his bed at night with a flashlight,”. This shows us that Nigel is afraid of what people will say about him. They may not take him seriously because he likes to do female jobs. By saying that he is going to soccer practice it does not make anyone suspect anything. The book did not do a very good job on explaining the different types of stereotypes. Nearly, every man that appears on the pages of “The Devil Wears Prada” is so homosexual that it begins to feel like a mock. It is common knowledge that a group of men in the fashion industry are homosexuals. However, in the book, the majority of male workers that work in the publishing industry are gay. In addition, that those who are gay are incapable of holding decent conversations without devolving into gossip and slander. Firstly, in the book The Devil Wears Prada “every time they mentioned a homosexual person they would be engaging in some...
