...the need to focus on our own Canadian culture despite being surrounded by other cultures, the need to promote and establish our own writers, and the need to encourage younger Canadian authors. Students in Ontario taking English should particularly study Canadian literature because we are completely swamped by the American culture around us. This is a Canadian tradition in that we have always been a “branch plant” of another country starting with England and France meaning that our own culture has never had the chance to develop since we have always been under the thumb of a stronger foreign culture. For years, a student in Ontario will study Shakespeare and other British writers. Today everyone may also study American authors such as Fitzgerald and Hemingway; however, schools tend to limit a student’s exposure to Canadian novels. In this sense, Canada is an attic in that we have stored American and British literature without considering our own literature itself,1 no wonder a Canadian student has problems appreciating their culture. Often what Canadian literature is studied is sparingly old. This includes works such as Mordecai's “Apprenticeship of DuddyKravitz” or “Lawrences Stone Angel”. “Fifth Business”, which was published in 1970 over 35 years ago, is still on many courses of study in grade 12 classrooms. Atwood's “Handmaid's Tale”, that is the most recent of these books was published in 1985 over ten years ago. Again although many teachers allow and can......

Factory workers' morale fell as they felt underpaid and treated unfairly. They objected to the management's decision to expand production, which will impair the quality of the cars, resulting in the escalation of malfunctioning automobiles in the last few months. Solutions available to curb the situation include tolerating lower profit margins, updating the plant, increasing manufacturing significantly, introducing in the United States, undertaking with a South East Asia engine manufacturer, devising green vehicles and obtaining capital plus skills from a European manufacturer.

Left Side, Strong Side

...Darian Greenbaum K. Baker English 1100 13 November 2012 Left Side, Strong Side Remember the Titans is a film directed by Boaz Yakin bases in 1971 when discrimination, prejudice, and racism was still a way of life. Due to a court order, three high schools in Alexandria, Virginia were forced to integrate their students and faculty for the first time. Consequently, Coach Bill Yoast, a prominent, white member of the community and longtime head coach of the T.C. Williams High School football team, is asked to step down. Herman Boone is appointed to replace him as the school's first black faculty member and head football coach. The new coach faces many challenges; the newly integrated team is full of players (both black and white) who have little trust or respect for one another. Boone is determined, however, to put a winning team on the field. Against the odds, Boone helps his team over-come doubt and misconceptions of their coach, and each other, as they become an undefeated team eager to partake in the championship, united. Remember the Titans shows that people can put aside their individual needs and wants for the greater good of the team and the community. The film loudly conveys that building inter-racial friendships, one by one, then group by group, can transform a community. The relationship between Gerry Bertier and Julius Campbell highly resembles, at first, the tension amongst whites and blacks during the 1970’s. Gerry, the white captain of the football...

A number of them died on the battlefield, most famously Edward Thomas,Isaac Rosenberg, Wilfred Owen, and Charles Sorley. Others including Robert Graves,[4] Ivor Gurney and Siegfried Sassoon survived but were scarred by their experiences, and this was reflected in their poetry. Robert H. Ross[5] characterised the English "war poets" as a subgroup of the Georgian Poetry writers. Many poems by British war poets were published in newspapers and then collected into anthologies. Several of these early anthologies were published during the war and were very popular, though the tone of the poetry changed as the war progressed. One of the wartime anthologies was The Muse in Arms, published in 1917. Several anthologies were also published in the years after the war had ended.

Make or Break for F-35

...not. Make or Break for the F-35 The sun rises on six Air Force F-35As awaiting flight testing at Edwards AFB, Calif., in June. After lackluster testing progress in 2010, test sorties are mounting rapidly in 2011 as the test fleet grows. A 22 s the Pentagon’s biggest and most expensive program, the F-35 is getting intense scrutiny, both from Pentagon managers and Congress. Now that tight fiscal limits put every defense dollar under threat, the F-35 needs to prove itself—and fast. There’s been a whirlwind of action on the F-35 over the last 18 months. The program has been shaken up and restructured—twice—prompted by severe cost and schedule overruns. The Nunn-McCurdy law requires the Defense Secretary to scrutinize such programs and decide whether the requirement can be met some other way. Ashton B. Carter, the Pentagon’s acquisition, technology, and logistics chief, told the Senate Armed Services Committee in May that after this analysis: “We didn’t come up with any better alternatives to the Joint Strike Fighter. We want it.” However, Carter immediately added, “At the same time, it has to be affordable; and at the moment, … it’s not.” Carter said that during the last decade, the F-35’s per-aircraft cost “has doubled in real terms.” That has happened, in part, because as the nation was fighting two wars at once, money was flowing to the Pentagon, and there was “an erosion of focus on affordability,” he admitted. This doubling of the F-35’s price is......

Students have to deal with many problems when they study abroad. They have to learn how to be accustomed to a new environment and how to get along with the teachers and classmates. During their study, they can acquire some interpersonal skills. Finally, studying abroad can provide a good language environment to students and make it easy to pick up a language.

On the Left Side

...On the Left Side Sins are inevitable. People make sins every day without them even knowing it. But when they do, they tell their sins to God and God will forgive them. That is not how life works to all people who believes in God. God may see past a sin but that is not the case for some people. Some people cannot see past a sin and that is what we see in this short story from 1991 On the Left Side. This short story deals with almost a whole town of hypocrites who has supported a project, which was to send someone to Burundi, some state in Central Africa, to set up and run a medical mission. The choice landed on Sister Philomena O’Halloran. After twenty years of work, she sent a young African back to the hometown, Conn, in Western Ireland, and the reception was shocking as they easily could see, from his looks, who the mother was. The narrator is a woman who has also sinned by getting a baby with a man outside a marriage, just as Sister Philomena O’Halloran. “The right side of the church is filled to bursting, while only ten people – myself and nine other sinners – sit on the left.” (p.1, l.2). After Father O’Rourke and as good as the rest of Conn had dropped their investments in Sister Philomena O’Halloran’s mission, the narrator were still managing to raise money, in a fond she had raised herself, and sent them to Sister Philomena O’Halloran, but it were not as much as it used to be. The narrator is mad on the way Father O’Rourke is keeping Friday outside and how Friday is...

On the Bright Side

...Arienne Felisa C. Palma Comm 1 – Ma’am Yu 2015-04880 Dec. 6, 2015 On the Bright Side According to an article in UNESCO’s website, “Youth’ is best understood as a period of transition from the dependence of childhood to the independence of adulthood and awareness of our interdependence as members of a community.” Youth is a more fluid category than a fixed age-group. This statement alone tells us about how complex the term “youth” is since, as we all know, there are infinite differences and varieties between an individual from another individual, a group from another group, and an entire culture from another culture. But generally speaking, there are numerous ways on how to determine people from the youth today and to later find out that these observations are very much lucid and manifested. There are many possibilities as to how to determine the differences between the youth nowadays and the youth before. Stating the main characteristics of today’s generation alone is enough to make a comparison from then. These personal characteristics may be further categorized into four main divisions: Physical, Social, Emotional and Intellectual. Physically, we can see how fashion drastically changes from time to time. As compared to before, the youth today have clothing which tends to be a whole lot showier and less conservative, most especially to girls. Also, they are more likely to be concerned about bodily image than the youth before. And unfortunately, most of......

Beauty - 35 Years Later

...Beauty – 35 Years Later Frederick A. Clark # 0896254 Composition 120 Northwood University March 3, 2010 Beauty – 35 Years Later In 1975, the article “Beauty”, written by Susan Sontag, attempted to alert Americans to the stigmas and stereotypes in society doing harm to women. Sontag surmised society judged women by their beauty alone, with each portion of the body scrutinized for perfection. One would surmise from her writing, if a woman was beautiful, then somehow her ability to be objective, professional, authoritative, and thoughtful was under suspicion. This limited women rising to positions of power and leadership in business and society by conforming to expectations of society. The era of the 1970’s was about change. Traditional thinking was being replaced with viewpoints some considered radical in nature. The end of the Vietnam conflict returned our military men and women home to an America different than when they departed. The establishment was being challenged from all sides. Traditional definitions of men and women’s roles in society were in question, men wanted the freedom to choose and women wanted full recognition of equality of the sexes. Sontag was not alone in her opinion. 1975 was a time of struggle in passing of the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution of the United States (Francis), interpretation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission...

...George Orwell, "Politics and the English Language," 1946 [pic] Most people who bother with the matter at all would admit that the English language is in a bad way, but it is generally assumed that we cannot by conscious action do anything about it. Our civilization is decadent and our language -- so the argument runs -- must inevitably share in the general collapse. It follows that any struggle against the abuse of language is a sentimental archaism, like preferring candles to electric light or hansom cabs to aeroplanes. Underneath this lies the half-conscious belief that language is a natural growth and not an instrument which we shape for our own purposes. Now, it is clear that the decline of a language must ultimately have political and economic causes: it is not due simply to the bad influence of this or that individual writer. But an effect can become a cause, reinforcing the original cause and producing the same effect in an intensified form, and so on indefinitely. A man may take to drink because he feels himself to be a failure, and then fail all the more completely because he drinks. It is rather the same thing that is happening to the English language. It becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts. The point is that the process is reversible. Modern English, especially written English, is full of bad habits which spread by imitation and which can be avoided if......
