On June 7, 2013, a Ford Focus struck an old beat up Dodge minivan about five miles south of Macomb. This evening was intended to be a wonderful night, with meatloaf, mac 'n cheese, and green beans for dinner, Kara's favorite meal. Tragedy got in the way of a terrific night's plans; my sister and her boyfriend just happened to be aboard that Ford Focus that evening.
“Ring, Ring, Ring.” I picked up to hear the voice of my ex- boyfriend, whom I had not spoken to in quite some time, and I instantly heard the panic in his voice. His cracky voice told me that my sister and Brandon had been in a severe car accident, and Brandon was okay, but Kara was being taken to McDonough District Hospital in Macomb by ambulance. “No, not my best-friend, or my big sister!” This news struck me with emptiness. I couldn't bare the thought of my sister being hurt, or not there at all anymore. Jack tried to keep me calm, and told me to not drive, and to stay put unless I found somebody to take me to her. I knew I had to get to that hospital , so I had my friends drive me. I tried getting hold of my parents, but I failed because they were in Florida, and were out for the night. It was a 30- minute drive, that felt like days. I couldn't keep from getting gruesome pictures in my head, and I couldn't stop thinking the worst had happened.
As we were driving to meet Kara at the small town hospital, cop cars were speeding by, with their flashing lights. One of them just happened to be the father of my sister's boyfriend, and he was exceeding the speed limit. We reached the hospital after 30 minutes of driving. When I arrived at the hospital I saw Brandon standing in a swarm of eager cops in front of the entrance to the hospital accompanied by three police officers who were doing an…...

The June Forth Massacre

...opportunists overthrowing the Communist Party and the political system. Finally the government declared the martial law and cleared the Tiananmen Square by killing protestors. The Tiananmen Square Protest was ended after the June Forth Massacre. Hong Kong plays an important role on the movement as she supported the activists on Tiananmen and still keep fighting for democratic development in China and vindication of June Fourth massacre. During the period from April to May on 1989, there were lots of activities organized in Hong Kong in order to support the democratic movement in Tiananmen. For example, The Hong Kong Federation Of Students sent 4 members to Beijing so as to understand the situation, 1,500,000 hongkongers took part in Chinese Around the Globe Demonstration, one million people joined demonstration in Hong Kong to support the students in Tiananmen, a fund raising activity for the protest in Tiananmen called “Concert For Democracy In China” was hold at Happy Valley Racecourse etc. After the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China (the "Alliance") was established, regular activities are conducted to push democratic development in China, for instance, demonstration for the June Fourth incident, Candlelight Vigil for the June Fourth incident and other demonstrations for political and human rights issues. The China Pro-democracy movement belongs to the revolutionary Social Movement because it sought a complete transformation......

Henry and June Review

...ampliar su relación en el sentido de nuevas experiencias, orgias y tal.. pero decidieron q podría amenazar su matrimonio. (Su fiel marido era quien estaba menos dispuesto a ello.) A través de Richard (un amigo de Hugo) conoce a Henry, escritor americano. Henry es opuesto a su marido Hugo en todos las posibles maneras, es más mayor, no tiene ni un duro, es irresponsable y como Anais, siente pasión hacia la literatura y también hacia un tema relevante para Nin: el sexo. Luego conoce a june, la mujer de Henry, una mujer liberal, bisexual y a quien se define como físicamente espectacular. Y mientras Anais se está atraída por Henry, por sorpresa para ella, se sintió aún más atraída por June, con quien estrecha una amistad cargada de tensión sexual y de deseo por ambas partes. Cuando June tiene que volver a America con intención de volver tras unos meses, con quien tiene una aventura Anis es con Henry, una aventura que mantendrán ambos durante sus carreras literarias. A través tanto de Henry como de June, Anais descubre una especie de liberación sexual que le llevará a tener más amantes durante los siguientes meses, incluyendo a su primo-amante Eduardo o su psicoanalista.

Su marido Hugo decía q Anais se enamoraba de la mente de las personas y por eso......

China and the Tian'Anmen Bloodshed of June 1989

...economic expansion was the new focus – “to get rich is glorious” (Whittaker and Pryce-Jones, 2010). Under the influence of Deng, it opened opportunities for China to reinsert itself into the capitalist world system (Martin, 2010, p. 2). Significant changes took place including, increase in foreign trade; foreign investment; and economic growth rates were better than ever. China became a strong competitor in the global market. Not so long after in 1978, the ‘Democracy Wall’ movement came about (Zhao, 2008, p. 19 and Goldman, 2001, p. 1). It was a movement that illustrated China’s “struggle for democratic change” (Wang, 1998, p. 28). It is believed that the movement was closely linked with the Tiananmen Square Massacre that took place on June 4, 1989. Many civilians were killed by the Chinese military to control pro- democracy student protesters who had been protesting for a democratic China since April 14, 1989 (Smith, 2010 and BBC News, 2008). According to Chinese government official figures, 241 casualties were killed and 7000 were injured (Nathan and Link, 2001, p. 436). Many pro-democratic leading activists were located and accused for ‘disturbing social order’ (Smith, Hadfield and Dunne, 2008, p. 310), many were jailed, while others were sentenced to death. Some were sent to labour reform camps to prevent influence on other Chinese citizens (Smith, Hadfield and Dunne, 2008, p. 310). Looking back, the Chinese mostly viewed the protest in Tiananmen was not only a push......

...June 2011 Explain the term turnout used in the extract. Turnout represents the number of registered voters who cast a ballot at a given election usually expressed as a percentage. In this extract turnout refers to non-electoral political participation. Traditionally, the political participation of the UK’s citizens is measured by turnout to general elections. For example, in 2005 turnout to the general election was just 60%. This was seen to be a participation crisis by some. This extract would argue that casting a ballot is only part of a person’s political participation. It shows that 62% of people had given money to an organization in the previous 12 months. Also, 50% of people had signed a petition. This suggests individuals choose their involvement in politics in their own way and generalizing that if general election turnout is low, political participation is low is incorrect. This is supported by the POWER report in 2006 that suggested there is not a political participation crisis as there is still involvement on a local level. This suggests that political participation should not just be judged on turnout for general elections but also other acts of political participation. Using your own knowledge as well as the extract, consider why some commentators have spoken of a ‘participation crisis’ in recent years. In recent general elections, declining levels of turnout have led some to believe Britain is having a participation crisis. Meaning, political......

...June 10 – unit 1 Memory 1. Secondary memory Long-term memory B Recognition Rehearsal loop C Central executive Sensory memory A Short-term memory 2. One strategy for memory improvement is an acronym, which is a mnemonic (verbal). An acronym is a word that is produced from the initial letters of the sentence/phrase needed to be remembered. For example, the word “Lol” is said to remember the phrase “laughing out loud”. Mnemonics can also be visual, for example, loci which derived from the Greek meaning of ‘place’. This strategy is simply associating parts of the material needed to be remembered with places, for example, different rooms in your house. So trying to remember the components of the working memory model you could mentally imagine a ‘central executive’ sitting in your bathroom. 3a. There will be a difference between the amount of numbers adults (aged between 30 – 40) can immediately recall compared to children (aged between 5 – 15) 3b. The experimenter used independent group design because the independent variable being tested was age and therefore required two age groups. 3c Age group Mode Children 6 Adults 7 3d. The frequency distribution shows that on average adults recalled more correct digits than children. 3e. These results do support other research because brain capacity is said to increase with age and we develop strategies such as chunking (Miller) also increasing with age. 4.

...sent a message to the Emperor of Japan that same day. At the same time this was going on, the New York Times ran a story about the U.S. Navy in which the Secretary of the Navy Knox stated how superior the U.S. Navy was. He went on to talk about how our Navy was in essence, the best in the world. There were several other stories in the papers that day with commentary about the possibilities of war with Japan. Some said we had avoided war thanks to the President and Secretary of State Hull, while others said it was inevitable. As far as the negotiations went, the Japanese had relayed that they would respond to the latest message from the U.S. at 1300 hours on the 7th. No one knew why the specific time, but as we now know that correlates with the attack on Battleship Row. When reading about the morning of the 7th it brings back frustrating memories of September 11th, 2001. There were warning signs that something was going to happen, but no one seemed to take them too seriously. There were multiple sightings of Japanese subs close to the harbor, and one was actually in the harbor. One of our patrol ships actually sunk a mini-sub in the harbor, reported it as an unknown, and then went on about its patrol duties. The Japanese planes were seen on the radar, but were mistaken for a group of B-17s coming in from the mainland. And finally, when the attack started, just about everyone on the island assumed it was drills being carried out by the military. Each branch assumed the......

Young generation are still ignorant about the event. According to Lim Louisa’s research and experiment, many young best-educated students could not recognize the iconic image of Tiananmen-Tank Man. A vast majority doubted the validity of the photo. e.g. high-school textbooks excluded this incident. Even some history textbooks-> claimed the imperialist Western world was trying to make socialist countries abandon the socialist route. e.g. detention of Tiananmen Mothers such as Ding Zilin and her husband , Zhang Xianling, cctv monitoring them.

This mark scheme includes any amendments made at the standardisation events which all examiners participate in and is the scheme which was used by them in this examination. The standardisation process ensures that the mark scheme covers the students’ responses to questions and that every examiner understands and applies it in the same correct way. As preparation for standardisation each examiner analyses a number of students’ scripts: alternative answers not already covered by the mark scheme are discussed and legislated for. If, after the standardisation process, examiners encounter unusual answers which have not been raised they are required to refer these to the Principal Examiner. It must be stressed that a mark scheme is a working document, in many cases further developed and expanded on the basis of students’ reactions to a particular paper. Assumptions about future mark schemes on the basis of one year’s document should be avoided; whilst the guiding principles of assessment remain constant, details will change, depending on the content of a particular examination paper.

Tata Coffee June Analysis

...1st June: The Sensex closed below psychological mark of 16000 at 15965.16 down 253.37 points or 1.53%. The Nifty ends at 4841.60 down 82.65 points or 1.68%. The breadth of the market was negative with Advance Decline ratio at 1:2. About 836 shares advanced, 1820 shares declined, and 768 shares remain unchanged. A slew of bad economic cues from across the globe didn't help Indian equities either. Reports of monsoon rains over India's mainland will be delayed by about four days also weighed on sentiment. A whole host of disappointing macro economic data including weak PMI data from many countries across the globe dragged the bourses down. BSE FMCG was almost flat with a gain of 0.13%. TATA Coffee closed at 839.85 losing 1.53% along with market sentiments. Volume of TATA Coffee was just 7978 as compared to the average volume of 61877. 8th June: Today, the BSE benchmark recovered 234 points from intraday low of 16,485.02, before closed up 69.82 points at 16,668.87. Meanwhile, the NSE benchmark rebounded from intraday low of 4,994.80, which ended up 18.70 points at 5,068.35. The BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty rebounded quite smartly in late trade on Friday that helped them to close higher in all sessions of the week. The market saw highest ever weekly absolute gains in 2012, with the Nifty rising 4.7% and the Sensex 5%. Recovery in European markets and Indian rupee, and short covering helped the market to bounce back today. Looking at the sharp recovery, it seems that the......
