Oxford University Press, This is done through a keyboard -- texting, email, or online chat. Texting, or text messaging, is a modern colloquial term that refers to the exchange of information between mobile devices, made possible by transmitting messages through cellular networks.
Typically, these types of messages are sent using a Short Message Service SMS , but with the advances in cellular technology and memory, a new Multimedia Message Service MMS made it possible to send messages containing images, video, and sound. Email of course is simply messaging sent through an nternet account, and M the virtual equivalent of texting. Texting is a global phenomenon, and in some…… [Read More]. Tom Sawyer Chapter Exegesis Scene.
Fighting fair, Tom still shines despite his aggression, particularly in light of Alfred's cowardly stone throwing when Tom's back is turned. Analysis This first chapter in Tom's adventures is of cleverly constructed form; sharing all key elements needed to know in order to follow the story, identify with the protagonist, despise the multiple antagonists, and fondly recognize the doddering aunt as a 'straight man' to Tom's antics.
The reader is immediately engaged in the story because Twain's style opens with dialog - known as a 'hook' in publishing parlance. The reader is instantly curious; why is this person named Tom being so vocally pursued? Who is doing the shouting? Why is this Tom character not responding?
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a snapshot of reality with which all readers can identify; it is not necessary to live in the backwaters of Mississippi to recognize sincere affection and security, sneaky…… [Read More].

Summary of the property The transmedia concept is not a novelty these days, as the concept was first patented at the beginning of the s. He describes transmedia storytelling as "a process in which integral elements of a fiction get dispersed systematically across multiple delivery channels for the purpose of creating a unified and coordinated entertainment experience.
Ideally, each medium makes its own unique contribution to the unfolding of the story. Some Democrats were caught completely off guard by it when most of the swing voters voted for Bush instead of Kerry, giving Bush the Presidency. Surveys and polls done afterwards revealed that those voters, the ones who won the election for Bush, were opposed to the Iraq war, but saw Bush as representing the one thing that was more important to them than whether we were at war or not: Actually the movement to make the Presidential race a moral one has been going on for decades, galvanized by the shift in this country in the late sixties and early seventies regarding both sex and drug use.
Wade decision by the Supreme Court became a rallying cry, and that issue has been important in every Presidential election since. This time, the issue…… [Read More]. Education - eading Censored Books The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey is a series of children's novels about two fourth graders, George Beard and Harold Hutchins, and the aptly named superhero they accidentally create by hypnotizing their principal, Mr.
These books are appropriate for child who are age 7 and up. The American Library Association has put the series at no. According to the ALA, the complaints filed against the Captain Underpants books cited the series' anti-family content, unsuitability for the age group, and violent content.
Captain Underpants series has been banned in some schools for insensitivity and being unsuited to age group, as well as encouraging children to disobey authority Beerman, Shoeless Joe American Dreams How. And so America continues to search subconsciously for ways back, for snorkels to lower to those buried souls. Consider the resurgence of magical literature in America over the last decade and a half.
Never since Tolkien has the fantasy genre -- the Twilight books and the wealth of vampire chronicles accompanying for example -- been so widely successful. Rowling's Harry Potter novels are a recent manifestation of that search for snorkels. What could be more escapist than to imagine being a wizard estranged and insulated from his magical heritage and forced into the mundane -- muggle -- world?
Kinsella, so has Harry Potter been to a recent generation of Americans. Harry Potter is a mythological symbol of the type Campbell knows has been lost to the detriment of the people.

Children's Lit Montano urges a rigorous critical examination of children's literature for racism, linguicism, sexism, and bias. The importance of critical examination is to empower teachers, students, and parents to recognize the root causes of bias, prejudice, and stereotype.
The function is not simply to point out obvious instances of racism, linguicism, sexism, and other biases. Moreover, it is not enough to include literature written from multicultural perspectives in classroom syllabi. Nor is it enough to ask teachers to deconstruct stereotypes in texts and images if teachers are unaware of the subtle biases that exist therein," p. Montano calls the process of analysis critical literacy.
The process by which critical literacy can be attained varies but Montano provides…… [Read More]. History of Coca-Cola Company Coke We all know - at least if we are old enough to have heard the jingle - that Coke would like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. Except that this isn't quite true. What the Coca-Cola Company would most like to do is to teach the world to drink Coke - or one of its other wholly owned brands. The company has in fact proved to be remarkably hardy in the ever-more-globalizing economy.
It's hard to travel anywhere in the world today and not see someone sipping a Diet Coke. But this does not mean that the company's entrance into different national markets has been smooth - or that its continued competitiveness in various national markets will be assured. Each country presents a unique set of cultural and economic challenges. Why Is it Important to Study Mythology. On an individual level, mythology could teach moral or human truths, whereas on a collective level mythology could be used to keep people in touch with their origins.
Mythological stories could then be used to teach children values such as hard work, diligence and obedience. Role models are created through mythological figures. Also, the mythology of different cultures can serve to teach the student about the values of that culture.
This is particularly important in the world today, since advancing technology and phenomena such as globalization has brought foreign cultures much more frequently in touch with each other than was previously the case. It is therefore important to study mythology for the values that it can teach both children and adults, and also for understanding the heritage inherent in these stories. Defining Mythology Mythology derives from the complexity of the human…… [Read More].
It considered beginning fantasy genre children adolescents. Lewis Caroll's novel "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is a timeless text, considering the way that many individuals throughout time have had the tendency to identify either themselves or some feelings they were experiencing with the book's protagonist. While it might seem that the story is about a girl coming across a series of silly episodes that are similar to most tales.
In reality, upon further analysis someone might discover a multitude of instances involving satire and irony. The novel is also largely meant to relate to the experiences that a person goes through as he or she attempts to discover themselves. Alice essentially goes through a process that makes it possible for her to mature and to gain a more complex understanding of the world.
Children's Literature to Dispel the. In comparing a number of literary elements in one story, Smith and Wiese contend that at times, when attempting to transform an old story into a modern multicultural version, cultural meanings of the original story may be lost.
In turn, the literature does not subject the reader to another culture. For instance, in the story about the fisherman, that Smith and Wiese access, the plot remains similar plot, however, significant changes transform the reported intent to make the story multicultural. Changes included the fisherman's daughter's stated name, being changed from one common to her culture to Maha. Instead of God, as written in the original version, the reference notes "Allah. Technology Presentation Information Technology Cannot.
We agree that people still purchase books. The reason is that today the author gets paid upfront and if people do not read the book, the publisher has to bear the loss. Secondly publishers are able to 'sell the books' to the bookstores' based on 'consignment system', whereby the 'book store' is able to return the books which are unsold against a 'full refund'. Grossman, Jeanie Comstock says that some of the changes that became mandatory include the quality, readability and accessibility of documents.
The changes in publishing technology have also called for changes in the roles for technical workers, communicators and even writers. Thus the intervention and role of the technical communicator has changed so that the matter or book published to day is readable, articulate, and navigable both in the printed and in the electronic media.
The composite problem is also to keep up the author…… [Read More]. Fandom Was Born When the. The fandom of Harry Potter is maybe the most important due to its rapid growth over a short period of time and to the huge number of "followers" it gained even among adults. One of the most relevant television series in support of the idea that on one hand, a TV show sets trends is "Sex and the City" Carrie Bradshaw sands for the intellectual modern women in the big cities all over the world.
It is a reciprocal that operates here in the influencing and trend setting. The fandom is clearly impossible to be left out nowadays when it comes to considering the follow up of a television show and the show leaves an unmistakeable mark on its most devout audience on a bigger scale than ever.
Listening We've all had encounters with people like Miranda Priestly in the workplace. Leaders like her certainly have strong visions and the self-confidence with which to execute their goals. Miranda Priestly does not always communicate ineffectively. At times the domineering facade falls away to reveal a more sensitive side as she confides in Andrea on a few occasions.
In one scene towards the end of the film, Miranda speaks with an uncharacteristically soft tone of voice and does not interrupt as she usually does. However, Miranda hears -- she does not listen. She does not care about what Andrea or anyone else actually has to say because frankly, Miranda Priestly does not have to care. Her role as chief editor of…… [Read More]. Business Overview of Coke and.
As obesity became a hot top, outcry from parents, educators and government institutions began to criticize these arrangements. Coca-Cola has also been rebuked for its Harry Potter promotional advertising campaign, the costliest movie tie-in ever, that promotes children's literacy while simultaneously pushing Coke sales aue, The independent environmental group said it had found no pesticides in tests of Coke and Pepsi soft drink brands sold in the United States and attributed India's high pesticide residues to the soft drink and bottled water industry's use of an enormous amount of ground water as the basic raw material.

Teaching the fundamentals does not necessarily mean stripping the fun out of learning, however. In fact, the best educators know how to balance the wishes of students with core concepts. For example, teaching Homers Odyssey could include both a close reading of the primary text, an analysis of the text using literary criticism, plus an analysis of modern manifestations of the work, such as the Coen brothers' film O Brother here Art Thou.
Developing a broad-based curriculum can extend fundamental knowledge about literature, making that knowledge applicable to a wide range of literary works. Students who can apply themes and philosophies to works beyond that which they encounter in the classroom have really learned something. However, by simply mimicking popular culture, the educator deprives students of the ability to think critically. E-Books vs Traditional Books.
A number of small, independent bookstores as well as the major bookstore chain Borders have gone out of business. The Internet has superseded many of the traditional functions of print and reading online does not entail additional costs to readers.

In contrast to the flashy, urbane, womanizing Bond of film, Fleming's secret agent seems much more subdued. Bond is first shown at a firing range -- although Bond is a crack shot, his prowess with a pistol seems very tame compared with the fantastic gadgets he has been saddled with in various films.
When he meets with M, there is no flirtatious banter with Miss Moneypenny. Pedagogic Model to the Teaching of Technology to Special Education Students Almost thirty years ago, the American federal government passed an act mandating the availability of a free and appropriate public education for all handicapped children.
In , this act was updated and reformed as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, which itself was reformed in At each step, the goal was to make education more equitable and more accessible to those with special educational needs. During the last presidential term, the "No Child Left Behind" Act attempted to assure that individuals with disabilities were increasingly mainstreamed and assured of high educational results.
All of these legislative mandates were aimed at insuring that children with disabilities were not defrauded of the public education which has become the birthright of all American children. The latest reforms to IDEA, for example, provided sweeping reforms which not only expanded the classification of…… [Read More]. Industrial evolution rearranged the nature of business and society during the turn of the 20th century, the definition of success also changed.
Today, the general conception of "success" has evolved to mean an income of millions of dollars as a result of a highly usable product that itself evolves with time. Some of the most common icons of success today live and work in the computer, electronic, and information industry. Examples of these include Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook. Others have accomplished themselves in the entertainment industry and sports, gaining wild success in terms of fame and money.
It is tempting to shape one's personal definition of success according to these accomplishments. Warriors into the Wild. Into the Wild is the first novel by Erin Hunter in the Warriors series.

Social Focus on the Jobless. Already educated, she had the resources to -- and indeed did find - employment opportunities. Sociologically, she belonged in the lower middle classes. Both individuals had intelligence, courage and grits. But both also possessed existent privileges with which they could pull themselves up.
Critics of the work-it-hard perspective omit these facts. Perhaps they do so because focusing on the ordeals of the working class would suck us in a web of responsibility. The unfortunate fact is that individuals belonging to the working class castigate themselves unfairly for conditions that are beyond their control.
An example in Newman's book is illustrated by 'Jarvis' who, despite his experience, unable to find a job in a restaurant is still seeking employment. Yet 'Jarvis' still holds himself accountable for his lack of success "Some people are willing to try hard and therefore they can make it, regardless if the deck is stacked against them…… [Read More].

We have seen that the demographics of the wizarding world resembles pre-industrial Britain between the late middle ages and the early modern period. I have discussed the burden of infectious diseases on wizarding society but traditionally disease is not the only problem facing pre-industrial societies. In previous essays, I have explored how infectious disease can create high death rates in wizarding society. This does not just effect the population structure, it has huge consequences on how society functions and how the wizarding world approaches family planning.
