The physical and mental effects of Stress

...Stress can put people at risk for one of today's four leading causes of serious illness and death: heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic lung disease. Such findings were proven true by studies done by cardiologists Meyer Friedman and Ray Rosenman in 1956. Psychophysiological illnesses are stress-related. They are illnesses, such as high blood pressure, that are caused by high levels of stress. Immune responses may also be effected by stress. They can either speed up or slow down causing a ...

Canova's "Perseus with Head of Medusa"

...Perseus stands rigidly, looking at the head of Medusa. His expression is unchanged. One leg bends toward her head, but it does so in a rigid, uncomfortable manner. He holds his sword out on his right, and her head on his left. Fabric is draped unnaturally off his left arm and it falls to the floor behind him. He has the ideal body, with perfectly sculpted and toned muscles. Perseus is naked, save a pair of very decorative and ornate sandals. His body is in a curve, with his spine. He appears to ...

Poetry Analysis: "Batter My Heart, Three-Personed God, For You"

...Donne's poem is overall captivating, real, and moving. It stirs emotion inside of the readers and holds their attention with the harsh reality that this poem is the description of nearly all people who have faith. Though the phrase "three-personed God" is an allusion to the Christian triumvirate, anyone who is deep-rooted in their religion can relate to this desperate longing to be faithful to their God in a real and passionate way. Though hard to believe, most of those people probably feel that...

Prejudice, comformity and stereotyping in American History

...I don't think Derek would have come to have a change in attitude or behavior had it not been for the experience he had in jail. Coming full circle and realizing the reality that not everyone is the same and just because of your race, religion or gender we all are individuals. Derek was a product of his environment. Having conformed to a group of neo-nazi people who do nothing but see their world and don't think out side of it. This would be kind of like the saying thinking out of the box. Until ...

Love in the Family

...In conclusion, children need their parents' unconditional love and support. Friends come and go but a parent is for life. I truly believe in treat other people the way you want to be treated. And why shouldn't that apply to your children? Growing up you most likely appreciated the good relationship you had with your mother or father or you resented your parents and wished they understood you better. A parent is their child's backbone, and if the parent isn't there to support and understand them,...

Mortal Law Verses Divine Law

...Everyone can identify with Antigone's attitude because all people have their own set of "higher laws" or moral values. These values have changed over time. Different people from different times and different cultures are obviously going to have varying views. In the days when everyone had the same value system because they were all the same religion, these values were reflected in the laws. As people progressed, they separated into different religions and beliefs so the laws changed with them, b...

Mother Teresa: her life and my feelings

...Mother Teresa's love reached millions of people in millions of different ways. She did not let anything stop her from performing God's will ad following her heart. It took enormous, strength to live the life she did, and I pray to God and her every day for this same strength to get thorough the struggles in my life and to become a better person as each day progresses.

Relationships in Margaret Laurence's "The Stone Angel"

...Despite this failure in the relationship early on, however, Hagar's epiphany before dying changes the course of it and determines its ultimate success or failure. Realizing that she has never simply rejoiced and accepted the love she has been surrounded with, she gives Marvin the acceptance he has always needed by telling him that he has been a better son to her than John has. The early failure of their relationship can be attributed exclusively to Hagar; she has the wrong expectations of him a...

Depression, symptoms of depression

...Treatment is mandatory for serious cases of depression. The first step to becoming cured is to evaluate the type of depression that is occurring, once that is done you must determine what type of depression it is. Psychologists ask people with depression when the first time the started feeling depressed, how severe it is, and if you have had signs of depression before in your lifetime.

First impressions of Iago and Othello


Michael Gow's "Away"

...Staging will always enhance the audience's understanding of what is happening on a stage. The reader/audience member's perspective of the play is always changed through Stage Directions, Characterisation, Music, Lighting, Special Effects and use of space. Earlier, Gore Vidal's quote, "A talent for Drama is not a talent for writing, but an ability to articulate human relationships", was mentioned. When analysing Vidal's quote, it can be interpreted that Vidal meant that a playwright did not just ...

The Scarlet Letter: A Psychological Analysis

...However, Dimmsedale, yet again the example of the negative side of the novel, did not have a friend to turn to when he needed one, and we know how he eventually turned out. One example of this was on the night of the scene on the scaffold, when Dimmesdale stood alone at the top, and Pearl and Hester eventually joined him. Nothing was said, but just the fact that they were all together helped all of them deal with whatever guilt or turmoil they were feeling, and was actually one of the only times...

Effects of Guilt in Crime and Punishment

...Guilt is the main factor that drives Raskolnikov to insanity which leads to his alienation. Guilt attacks his physical heath making him drift in and out of consciousness, which makes him no longer function normally in society. During this, his mind is being consistently deteriorated by the guilt causing irrational thought. Raskolnikov eventually becomes alienated from society as he no longer thinks or acts like the people around him. Raskolnikov does not improve until he confesses and takes the ...

Elisabeth Bishop's poem "The Fish"

...In The Fish, Bishop transforms an old fish the speaker caught into a glorious figure of reverence. Bishop uses personification and analogies to set up the fish as dejected and lacking in spirit. However, the speaker's perception changes and tone is markedly more of admiration while symbolism is added as the remains of the fish's struggle become the trophies of victory. By employing personification and symbolism, Bishop uses figurative language to denote the speaker's changing understanding of th...

Analysis of Refugee mother and Child

...With this evidence, the poem could also be after the child has died and the mother is still holding and caressing her child, gently, carefully and cautiously yet - he is no longer alive. This action is explained in a simile and compares her parting his thinning hair to laying flowers on a tiny grave - another link to the possible idea that the son is already dead. The mother is gently parting her son's hair as a way to say goodbye, since he has passed on - just like another form of saying good b...

Brotherhood in "Sonny's Blues"

...The final scene in "Sonny's Blues" is striking and is dripping with real life emotion. The idea that one set of blues can bring together two brothers who have not talked in years is amazing, but so very true. The brothers have nothing in common between them apart from the same parents but they are forced through familial obligation to push aside those differences and show compassion and understanding for each other. These are the enduring qualities of brotherhood and they show that no matter how...

The things I carry

...I carry fears, fears that I may not know what tomorrow may bring, fears of rejection, fear of not succeeding, fear of what it hopes to me in the future. I fears things that I do not even know as the day of tomorrow and yesterday. I carry loneliness in my heart. The loneliness is like a friend that goes everywhere with me but also makes me feel bad. I carry a very heavy burden over my shoulders. I carry responsibility, the responsibility of being the oldest brother of 4 brothers and at the same t...

Concept Essay on Love

...These couples were able to overcome their differences and have been rewarded in each other. Their love still burns with the intensity and passion of those who have just found this wonderful anomaly of affection. These veteran couples have found one of the absolute truths in life: that we are incomplete. Our hearts, our stars, are built to require another. When and if that missing half is found, one may consider life to be at its best and resplendent in its wholeness; the missing piece of our sou...

Change - Analysis of 'Growing Old' by Matthew Arnold

...'Tis not to see the worldAs from a height, with rapt prophetic eyes,And heart profoundly stirred;And weep, and feel the fullness of the past,The years that are no more!The composer suggests that living in old age is tedious and tiresome, quietly waiting day after day for the same thing. Our spirit which was once shining brightly is now like a dimmed candle, waiting, slowly, to be blown out. At old age, all we have left to live off of are the memories of a time when things changed for us, a life ...

Eleven Seconds: Autobiography of Travis Roy - Book Report

...I would recommend Eleven Seconds to anyone who thinks their problems are too big to handle. The book is a good reminder that we should be thankful for everything we are able to do in our lives. Any time we have a meal, take a shower, brush our teeth, or get dressed, we are doing more than Travis can do on his own. I think the story is also a great motivator to live every day to the fullest. People who like hockey would probably be interested in Travis' story as well. Travis Roy comes off as a wa...

Techniques Used In A Current Affair Program

...People will continue to watch current affairs programs such as Sixty Minutes and Today Tonight. They will even continue to take what they see as the truth, even though we know that producers of show like the ones mentioned do use techniques like using emotive language, camera tricks and bias selection of content. However, by learning about all of the techniques they can use, we may be able to sort out what they're saying, so that we can clearly see what is fact and what is not. The techniques th...

Gabriel's Epiphany in James Joyce's "The Dead"

...After staring at his wife asleep on the bed, he feels deeply saddened that he will never experience a true love relationship in return from his wife. He wants her to be happy, and he knows she is actually devastated even after all these years of appearing to be content in their boring marriage. He decides then that he will make it up to her. He will be the man she always wanted and needed. Gabriel makes the decision to move to Ireland, the country he detests in the beginning of the story. This i...

George Orwell's 1984 Human Nature Essay

...Love and emotional attachments, the underlying components of human nature, lead one to fear pain and betrayal, as well as separation, ultimately causing one to accept the oppression and fear that allows the Party to thrive. In this society to survive one cannot allow a relationship to be formed. One must be solitary and isolated because it is necessary to have love, yet it is fatalistic to seek it out. Love has become a tool for the Party to manipulate. Human nature demands that families are lov...

Communication Styles

...Assertive communicators will stand up for their rights but yet be respectful about it. They also listen well and respect others and speak in a calm tone. I find myself being an assertive communicator the most especially in disagreements. I let others know how I feel but at the same time I still respect them and how they feel. Assertive communication is one of the best styles of communication because it creates an respectful environment and allows you to be mature enough to address issues as they...

Matilda Analysis - Belonging

...At the beginning of the film, when Matilda is reading books on the floor, her father walks in and a low mid shot is utilized with the father filling up most of the screen. This gives the effect that the father is treating her badly, thus makes the audience feel empathy for her. This conveys that Matilda does not belong in the family. At the scenes where Matilda is bonding with Miss honey, e. g. when they are walking at the garden, a medium eye level shot is utilized revealing their emotions. Mat...

Human development the three domains

...Education is the systematic, formalized transmission of knowledge, skill, and values (Robertson, 1989). Through education I have learnt how to speak English which is my second language. Language has helped me to communicate with others and has helped me to introduce my self to a wider community of people. By going to school I have learnt a variety of facts and skills such as interacting with others. Through involvement in academic programs and campus life, students engaged in exploration that pr...

Love in Shakespeare plays "Twelfth night - Romeo & Juliet"

...From my own prespective i think love in the Twelfth night is strongr and deeper while in Romeo & Juliet we have eye love which is baced on the physical appearance , what makes the story look so passionate is th impossibility of their marriage , As every body knows , human nature desired to struggle and face difficalties , such love will end as soon as they satisfy their desires , but love in the Twelfth night wont end easily because it was not easily given ... the emotions which can be easi...

The Suit by Can Themba

...Philemon had such a misconception of everything in his life, that he did not imagine the consequences of his actions would be so cruel. He turned into a wife abuser and Mathilda could not deal with the emotional abuse anymore. Philemon seriously distorted view of life, himself and his wife has ended his wife's life. As the story ends we see a side of Philemon that is the opposite of who he was in the beginning, his immense joy has become a great tragedy. We feel a twinge of sympathy for Philemo...

Discourse Community Analysis

...of the greatest discourse communities I have ever been part of. Soccer made me work and communicate with a team, something that I would probably not have done on my own. To form part of this community, it takes commitment, dedication and time to build a strong relation between one and the community. An important thing about me being successful in this discourse community is that I really enjoyed it as well as all of the obstacles it comes with. Yes it was hard but as the times passed I developed...

"The Crisis, NO. 1" Thomas Paine Literary Tools

...This makes the colonists think and recount on what they have done and what they can do to fix it. Overall, Paine uses many literary forms in this document, allowing the colonists to think more about what they should do, and evoking emotions of disgust and hatred toward Britain. This article pushed the colonists more toward wanting to be free of Britain and to not be slaves to them. They wanted to break away and gain their independence more due to this document and Paine’s way of writing this. ...

Hamlet's Growth Through Soliloquies

...Through Hamlet's soliloquies we are able to understand his true self, not the false facade he portrays to all that know him. We are able to trace his thoughts and emotions from his first passive act up until he finally avenges his father. Hamlet's tragic flaw is his inability to act which ultimately leads to the deaths of many characters and lastly himself. Without soliloquies many of Hamlet's actions, and reasons for not acting, would make very little sense. They help show Hamlet's true feeling...

Joan Didion Analysis

...In conclusion, Didion realizes that her “marked cards” cannot carry her though life. Didion is reviewing the actions in her past that were reflections of her misplaced self-respect. She cannot carry around her false credentials in hope to gain respect from others. After looking back on the falsely identified tragedy that changed her life, Didion understands that self-respect has nothing to do with the people you surround yourself with. Who you are does not reflect upon your past, or your rep...

Bob Dylan "Blowin' in the Wind"


A Critical Analysis Of "The Story Of An Hour"

...The confusing challenging part comes when Richards tries to get in the way of Louise's sight so she is not able to see Brently. I don't understand it, what does it mean? Did Richards maybe tell Brently to do something else rather than take this train trip but did not tell him that the train "accident" was to occur? Maybe it is so and he was trying to not allow Louise to see Brently because Richards and Louise had planned it all and he backed out on it. Maybe Louise's intention was to be with Ric...

Email vs "Snail Mail"

...He could digest the bad news in private and get his emotions under control before her had to respond (Kleinfeld 674). When you call someone and they don't pick up the phone you are either sent to a message machine or a voicemail service. Each of which only allow you to have a maximum of 2 minutes to leave whatever message it is that needs to be passed along. On the other hand if you send someone an email you are allowed near limitless text to pass on the same message. Plus with emails you are al...

Tuckman theory and difference between group and team

...A team holds qualities that a group does not have. A team gets together through trust and honesty and commitment of each and every member. Each member feels important and is essential in order to produce effective performance. As a team, they feel incomplete if one of them is missing. Another factor that differentiates a team from a group is emotions. There is a sense of belongings for each of the team members and they care for each other. Expressions, emotions and communications are practiced f...
