The Red Hat
This short story I had chosen for this assignment is the “The Red Hat”, by Rachel Hadas. Do you know what it's like to send your child off to school for the first time? Remembering how you felt when this happened, your connection to the emotions that Rachel Hadas, poet and former professor at Rutgers University, packs into "The Red Hat" will be instantaneous. Her story captures the anxiety and disequilibrium parents feel when watching their young children drawn away from them to enter school and a world away from home. When the watching parent is described in the story of “The Red Hat” as one whose "heart stretches, elastic in its love and fear”, you can feel those emotions because you have experienced them. Although no one has to explain what "wavering in the whirlpools of change" means you have lived through that uncomfortable experience when home seems strangely empty, routine is broken, and you are forced to accept that your child will not always be with you
The main themes that I analyzed was: independence, change and letting go. In this poem I found that independence was a way for parents to let their son walk to school alone when he was clenching to their hands not too long ago, “Where two weeks ago, holding a hand, he'd dawdle, dreamy, slow, he now is hustled forward by the pull of something far more powerful than school,” (Hadas 1994) .During the short story we understand another important theme: the importance for his parents that their son leaves their protection and safety and try to defend himself
This is a short story written from the point of view of a mother who is watching her son walk to school on his own for the first time. As this may be the literal meaning, the general idea of the story is the emotions and thoughts of a parent watching…...

Red Hat Linux Server

...server platform is Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat Linux has been a major player since 1993 starting as desktop version of Linux. In 2003, Red Hat Linux was changed to Red Hat Enterprise Linux which included more versions, including multiple server variants. A typical Linux package is comprised of a Linux kernel, possibly a GUI with window manager and a desktop environment, and other additional software. The Linux kernel is based off the Unix kernel and system originally developed in 1969 by a group of AT&T employees at Bell Labs. The Linux kernel was not developed until 1991 and is written in a version of the C programming language supported by GNU Compiler Collection. Version 3.0 of the Linux Kernel released on 2011, with no major changes initially from past versions but was built for the future. With the Linux kernel being open-source, security is a much criticized topic in relation to the Linux kernel, because a large number of bugs in the kernel can be potential security flaws, whether they allow privilege escalation or create denial-of-service attacks. Over the years, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has had numerous such flaws that were found and fixed in Red Hat’s version of the Linux kernel. New security features are continuously implemented to address computer insecurity issues in the Linux kernel. Although the creator of the Linux kernel, Linus Torvalds says he personally consider security bugs to be just 'normal bugs'. The current version Red Hat Enterprise......

...of the necessary tools and equipment. With gathering all the necessary information Lawrence would be using the white hat from the Six Thinking Hats process, an important and prevailing technique that allows a person to look at decisions from a number of important perspectives. This procedure provides a well-rounded view of a situation, forcing you to move outside your habitual thinking style. Colored hats are used as metaphors for each direction. Switching to a direction is symbolized by the act of putting on a colored hat, either literally or metaphorically. These metaphors allow for a more complete and elaborate separation of the thinking directions. Information, Emotions, Discernment, Optimistic Response, and Creativity, The six thinking hats indicate problems and solutions about an idea the thinker may come up with. If Lawrence Bridgeman puts this process into practice he will encourage creative thinking within decision-making and the final decision would be more resilient. It would cover all aspects emotions, pessimism, optimism, and alternative solutions. The general manager can use this process individually or with the other managers and also the head office in Holland.

Six Thinking Hats

...The Six thinking hats was developed by Edward de Bono in 1985. It has since become an international bestseller and integrated into many corporations for decision making saving tremendous amount of time and giving clear focus to complex business case situations. It focuses on “what can be” versus “what is”. Traditional thinking was defined 2300 years ago by the “Greek Gang of Three” Plato, Socrates and Aristotle. Their thinking was based on an argumentative model which is fine but not complete. Six thinking hats uses constructive, or parallel thinking model using the analogy of six hats to represent each perspective. The six hats are: - The white hat – facts and figures - The red hat - emotions and feelings - The black hat – cautious and careful - The yellow hat – Speculative and positive - The green hat - creative thinking - The blue hat – control of thinking This method is an excellent technique for making sure a problem is analyzed from all directions. It is a process that makes case analysis simple. It succeeds for several reasons: Power: The technique allows members of a group to go in one direction rather than defending a position. The experience and knowledge from all members is directed at the case. Time Saving: following the process and eliminating the argumentative method decisions are made more quickly, less time arguing. Removal of Ego: presenting and defending an idea can be become a defense of your ego versus real problem solving. With......

Six Thinking Hats Review

...BOOK TITLE : SIX THINKING HATS AUTHOR : EDWARD DE BONO In this book the author introduces a way of how to think. He introduces the concept of parallel thinking. He says that the enemy of thought is its complexity, which leads to confusion. When the thoughts are clear and simple, it is easy to make decisions. The concept of six hats is very simple to understand and use. In ordinary, unstructured thinking this process is unfocused; the thinker leaps from critical thinking to neutrality to optimism and so on without structure or strategy. The Six Hats Thinking process attempts to introduce parallel thinking. Many individuals are used to this and develop their own habits unconsciously. Sometimes, these are effective and sometimes times not effective. What is certain is that when thinking in a group these individual strategies will tend not to converge. As a result, discussion will not tend to converge. Due to the power of ego and the identified predilection to black thinking hat in the majority of western culture, it can lead to very destructive meetings. Even with clear shared objectives and good courtesy in any collaborative thinking activity there is a natural tendency for "spaghetti thinking" where one person is thinking about the benefits while another considers the facts and so on. The six hats process avoids this. Everyone considers and everyone looks in the same direction together. For example, a façade of a house (metaphorically speaking) and then the group will......

Cat in the Hat

...The Importance of Fantasy in The Cat In The Hat By Sabrina Lee Xin Ru (21257819) The Cat in The Hat was a children’s book written and creatively illustrated by Theodor Geisel under the pen name Dr. Suess. It was first published in 1957 and has since made a deep impression in the hearts of children and adults alike. The story centers around an eccentric anthropomorphic cat that comes in to the house of two children while the adults are away, attempting to entertain them while they are stuck at home on a rainy day. The element of fantasy that was implemented throughout the story, which includes a talking pet goldfish and a talking cat that performs all sorts of tricks, became an immediate success and was praised as an exciting alternative compared to the ineffective traditional primers such as those featuring Dick and Jane. This essay will discuss on the importance of fantasy in popular children’s literature such as The Cat in The Hat. Firstly, fantasy is vital for the human mind. Fantasy in children’s literature such as in The Cat in The Hat is important as it is a slow and mediated way for children to come to terms with the reality of life as they grow up. It begins as the psychological process by which a child learns to fill the gaps between knowledge, reality and experience, and becomes a vital coping mechanism. For example, when a young child is frightened by the unknown, like the spooky creaks of a floorboard in the middle of the night. For them, the only......
