Vera Drake lives with her husband Stan and her two grown children Ethel and Sid. Vera is a domestic who cleans the house of a rich woman. She has a good heart and cheerful even though she got plenty of work to do, and a lot of people to take care of and help women in need, as she calls it. Vera has her big secrete that has no one in her family knows, and a secret that she intends to keep secret. When she says “Help Women In Need” she means to help poor pregnant women who are not willing or not be able to give birth to a child. Because abortion was not legal in England in the year 1950’s.Vera’s secret comes to an end after one of the girls she treated gets sick and the police get involved.
This film does not only show how abortion works but it also tells us the story of the one who performs the abortion. Vera Drake was of pure good and it was never her intention ever to do abortion for her own benefit, but she was only thinking of how a poor pregnant woman would raise a child if they were born.
This movie also comes with moral values and an ethical question to be considered like is Abortion really a murder? Did Vera commit a serious crime? Or should Vera be put in jail, if her own intention was to help hose poor pregnant women?
As I finished watching this film, I tend to get sympathy with Vera, since she was such a caring and loving…...

...Aubrey Drake Graham born October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Ontario, who records under Drake. He is a Canadian recording artist, rapper, and songwriter. Drake started off playing Jimmy Brooks on the television series Degrassi. After that career was done he later rose as a rapper, after releasing a couple of mixtapes before signing with Young Money Entertainment (Kellman). For one Drake is one of my all time favorite music artists. He motivates me and puts me in a positive attitude with his original lyrics. The song “Successful” in the album So Far Gone and Ready sticks out as one of my favorite songs record by Drake. He pushes past the dilemmas in his life and all the dislike everybody throws at him but still does what he wants to do. Compared to other rappers, Drake has by far the most meaning in every song he produces. Drake has a music style that isn’t like any other; most of his lyricism is in regard to being rich and famous and also past relationships with strippers. “Drake's sound is labeled as "soft" for his genuine, forgiving lyrics and expressive melody.” (Lester). What is another thing that sets him apart from the rest is he has a wide vocabulary in his rhymes that he produces; you can tell that he is very high educated. From the album Take Care I can sing every song on that album because you can understand Drake when he raps. “Drake has a unique musical style that has set him apart from his Young Money counterparts, especially in his latest effort album “Take Care”......

They will contribute a minimum to society and will leave no footprints behind. Sir Francis Drake, Vice Admiral was not one of these people, not only did he impact the world around him, he conquered it as well. The life he led will go down in history, and his name will be remembered until the end of time for being the astonishing individual that he turned himself into. With consideration of all the incredible people whom he encountered during his five and fifty years, it is in great honor that I may speak during the hour of his death. Employed under our majesty, Queen Elizabeth I, Drake conquered the seas with an iron fist. He was an extremely loyal subject to our Queen and would have done anything to protect her. Whether this be defeating the Spanish Armada, giving the Queen and England itself a stunning victory. Onto a more personal level, in which I witnessed; when one of her subjects pulled a sword on her, he was right by her side, baring his own dagger, protecting our majesty from the potential threat. He was an outstanding navigator and sea captain, who accomplished circumnavigating the entire globe. Drake was a brave leader to many and used these skills to help bring down the mighty Spanish Armada. He saved countless of his soldiers’ lives on many occasions and was truly an honor to serve under, for his guidance was...

Vera states that her mother, “absolutely loved fashion” and “I had a mother that was superbly chic. She made fashion this adventure for me as a young woman. She viewed fashion not as superficial but as expressive.” (Zimbalist, 2007) Vera explains that from her mother she, “got a first class education with style, and quality, and exposure to European houses, and the kind of education that sometimes you can’t even get in school.” (MOVIE) Her wealthy upbringing allowed her to attend prestigious schools, including Chapin, a private school in Manhattan. It also allowed Vera to become involved in her passion, the sport of figure skating. Vera was a competitive figure skater until the age of 20, with the dream of becoming an Olympic skater. Unfortunately however, Vera failed to qualify for the 1968 Olympic team, calling it “heartbreaking”. (MOVIE) Moving past this disappointment, Vera enrolled in Sarah Lawrence College in New York.

The Feasibility of Aloe Vera as Lipbalm

...ntroduction The Aloe vera plant has been known and used for centuries for its health, beauty, medicinal and skin care properties. The name Aloe vera derives from the Arabic word “Alloeh” meaning “shining bitter substance,” while “vera” in Latin means “true.” 2000 years ago, the Greek scientists regarded Aloe vera as the universal panacea. The Egyptians called Aloe “the plant of immortality.” Today, the Aloe vera plant has been used for various purposes in dermatology. History Aloe vera has been used for medicinal purposes in several cultures for millennia: Greece, Egypt, India, Mexico, Japan and China.1 Egyptian queens Nefertiti and Cleopatra used it as part of their regular beauty regimes. Alexander the Great, and Christopher Columbus used it to treat soldiers’ wounds. The first reference to Aloe vera in English was a translation by John Goodyew in A.D. 1655 of Dioscorides’ Medical treatise De Materia Medica.2 By the early 1800s, Aloe vera was in use as a laxative in the United States, but in the mid-1930s, a turning point occurred when it was successfully used to treat chronic and severe radiation dermatitis.2 Plant The botanical name of Aloe vera is Aloe barbadensis miller. It belongs to Asphodelaceae (Liliaceae) family, and is a shrubby or arborescent, perennial, xerophytic, succulent, pea- green color plant. It grows mainly in the dry regions of Africa, Asia, Europe and America. In India, it is found in Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra and......

Vera Bradley started producing colorful and unique pattered designs for luggage, bags, sports bags and handbags; and after the success of the first product line and their economic growth, they decide to expand, creating new products such as: wallets, purses, computer and cell covers, scarves, beach accessories, lunch bags and jewelry.

Due the frustration of limited options that were compatible to her exclusive taste she began to designed her own wedding gown, commissioning a seamstress to assemble it. “This inspired her to launch Vera Wang Bridal House Ltd., in the Carlisle Hotel on Madison Avenue, New York City”.(bridal house, 2003). Vera decided to target upper class clientele, initially offering bridal gowns by designers such as Guy Laroche, Arnold Scaasi, Christian Dior and Carolina Herrena.
