How Lucky You Are

...How Lucky You Are Forbidden love is one of the hardest things, you can ever experience, as a human being. The fact that you love someone, and they love you back, but you can and will never be together, because of religion, culture or other sorts of factors. This is what Max and Ishraqi is experiencing, but they will never be together, because of their different backgrounds. Forbidden love, is truly one of the worst things that can ever happen to you. Have you ever thought about, or considered how lucky you are? You live in a free country. You have the right to be with anyone you’d like. Not everybody have that privilege. That’s the main theme of the text. The writer, Debi Alper, is trying to put focus on the problem, or taboo, which is forbidden love. Ishraqi and Max obviously care for each other, even though they’ve only known each other for a very short period of time. But they can’t be together, because Ishraqi is in England illegally. Another theme, which Debi Alper focuses on, is illegal immigration. Ishraqi is an illegal immigrant, who has lived in London alone for a year and a half, and she is applying for asylum, but instead they ship back to Iran. Max and Ishraqi are two very different people. Max is born and raised, I presume, in London. And Ishraqi was born in Iran, and then she emigrated from Iran to England. Max lives at home with his mom. He is 16. His dad left them a year ago, and went backpacking in Thailand. He hates his father for having left his......

How Lucky You Are

...How Lucky You Are Whenever I hear the word lucky, the first thing that comes to my mind is winning the lottery. Winning in the lottery would mean a life filled with luxury. It would mean that I could live in a big fancy house with ocean view. I could drive my Ferrari to work, if I actually bothered to work. I never think of how lucky I already am, even though I never have won the lottery. I live in a country where I am safe. I wake up every day and know that I will get food and be able to wear some nice cloths. This is not the case for everyone. In some countries, you never know what to expect when you wake up. You could be shot because there is war, or you could starve because your family cannot afford food. Some of the people who live under these conditions try to immigrate to another country. Sometimes the immigrant is completely alone without any family, because the family is unable to run away from the country. If the immigrant then succeeds their immigration they do not know anything about their family anymore. For all they know they could be dead. This is what the story “How Lucky You Are” from 2010 by Depi Alper is about. The story takes place in the urban environment of South London in Corydon where the main character named Max lives. Max is a troubled teenager who lives with his mom. Max’ father left to find himself. Max hates him for this mainly because he could hear his mother cry weeks after the father left: “Yeah right, Dad. That's why I heard her crying......

How Lucky You Are

...First; sorry if the english isn't completely right. English is not my native language, so I've done my best. How Lucky You Are is a short story written by Debi Alper in 2010. The story takes place in Britain, more precisely in the southern part of London . In the beginning of the short story the main character, Max, is in his room. He is thinking back to the day his father left Max and his mother and back to the day he met Ishraqi – an Iranian girl who in a few hours changes Max’ life. This part of the story takes place at the UK Borders Agency. This place is an important part of the story because it is here he meets Ishraqi, who has an appointment there, and it is here his life changes. The short story is written in past tense, and the narrator is a third person that is all knowing, because the narrator knows what Max is thinking . The short story consists of three parts; the first part is where Max is home and is thinking back to when his father left him and his mother. The second part is where Max is thinking back to the day he met Ishraqi and the third part is where Max comes home to his mother and is completely changed because of Ishraqi. Max is a 16-year-old boy who did not care about school. He wanted to take as few exams as possible. He goes to a school named The Brit School. It is a school for performing arts and technology. It was the ideal school for Max, but he found it boring with subjects like Maths and English . He did admit though that The Brit School...

How Lucky You Are Analysis

...Analysis and Interpret of “How lucky you are” We all do it. We look at the glass as half empty, we complain about school, and we hate our parents for telling us to be home at a certain time. Until something - an insightful person, a news item or the voice of reason inside our own heads - puts things into perspective. We realize the glass could in fact be viewed as half full, being able to attend school is a privilege, and we should be happy to have parents, who worry about us. We realize just how lucky we are. As its title reveals, Depi Alper’s short story “How lucky you are,” deals with this theme of appreciation. The story is a typical “boy meets girl”-story with a twist. The twist being that the meeting with the teenage girl, Ishraqi, becomes an eye-opening experience to the teenage boy, Max. The story has an atypical structure, in which the opening is written in the present tense as flow of Max’ thoughts. In these thoughts we are being sent back to the flashback of his father leaving him and his mother, in addition to being presented to Max’ world. The narrator of the story is a limited omniscient 3rd person narrator from the protagonist, Max’, point of view, which lets us follow his thoughts and feelings, whilst making the story subjective with only his version and view of things. This also becomes clear in the usage of the story, which involves a lot of slang. In the end of this opening flow of thoughts, Max closes his eyes and drifts back into the......

How Lucky You Are

...Terminsprøve - Delprøve 2 ”And know always how lucky you are”. That was what the woman, Alexsa, told Max, the main character in the short story “How Lucky You Are” written by Debi Alper in 2010, after they had realized that Ishraqi, an Iran girl, who Max has just meet, and felt in love with, was going back to Iran, where her life would be in danger, and she is in ignorance if her parents are alive, or where they are to be found. But what does Alexsa mean when she say, that Max will have to always know how lucky he is? And I wonder how it would fell when someone you love is reluctant leaving you forever and there are nothing you can do about it? The story presents a tense, but exciting relationship between two young teenagers; Max and Ishraqi. Common to both of them, is that they seem to be outgoing persons, smiling and obliges to new acquaintances. Ishraqi seems to be a mental strong character; “I do not even know where my parents are or if they are still alive”. Clearly she is moved by the ignorance about her parents, but she has managed to live on, and she is trying to build a new future, far away from Iran, in which her future looks dark and are not existing. She can still smile, enjoy and express love although the things she has been through has left vestige inside her. She too seems to be willing to open up, tell her personal story to somebody she just met, tells that she is an outgoing, trusting person. Max kind of has more, different types of......

But forbidden love is one of the most horrible things that you can imagine. “How Lucky You Are”, written by Debi Alper, is about two young adults, Max and Ishraqi, have only known each other for a short amount of time, but that is time enough for the two to fall in love. They want to be together, but Ishraqi is an illegal immigrant and is forced to go back to Iran, which leaves Max heartbroken. The story begins in Corydon, London in the UK. At first, the reader has no idea what or who the story is about, because it begins with in media res. You could say that the story is divided in four parts. The first is a very short introduction about what situation Max is in. After that, follows a short flashback, which has taken place a year ago. It describes how Max’s father walked out on him and his mother. Next comes an insight in how Max is as a person and how he behaves around his friends and mother. The last part is where he meets Ishraqi and her support teacher, Alexsa, at the Borders Agency, because Ishraqi is there to apply for asylum. Max wants to show Ishraqi around.

How Lucky You Are

...How lucky you are. ”And know always how lucky you are” This short story written by Debi Alper and published in 2010, the widest theme in this story is that you should appreciate what you have, that is what the main character Max does not, and how he during one day with an Iranian girl he had never met before slowly begin to realize the importance of doing so. A characterizing of Max would be that he, behind the outer, is a merciful and good boy. He is what we call a dynamic ‘’round character’’, that he is able to change. On the outside, he seems like a tough person, smokes his own homemade “fags”, and skips school, not even interested in it or his future, especially subjects like math and English. He is unware with other people unless they made a direct impact to him (it is shown that it is wrong after he meets Ishraqi.) He starts with a selfish, ‘’do not care’’, arrogant personality to being a grown-up. This story only takes places in one day, but it is enough for him to make a difference; ‘’He did not care that he was crying or that people might be watching. He did not care…’’ Line 196, page 12. Max has a very complicated relationship with his parents, his dad left, and he resents him for it “Fuck off then and if you do manage to find yourself in Thailand or wherever you are give yourself a kick in the bollocks from me.” Line 17-18 page 8. In addition, his mom does not appear to be a very great parent either, “Max’s mom was always telling him his imagination was......

The " Lucky" One

...The “Lucky” One In Shirley Jackson’s short story “The Lottery”, the evils of humanity and the strong roots of tradition dominate the behaviors of the community as a whole. The characters in this story represent the different evils of this barbaric tradition help in this small community. The tradition itself overrides the basic moral that killing someone is wrong in all situations. Robert Heilman says that Jackson, “has taken the ancient ritual of the scapegoat—the sacrificing of an individual on whom evils of the community are ceremonially laid, and plunged it into an otherwise realistic account of contemporary American life” (222). The story takes place in a small village with about 300 people. “The morning of June 27th was clear and sunny, with fresh warmth of a full-summer day” (Jackson 681). Lenemaja Friedman says, “The village appears to have holiday atmosphere…readers expectations are that the lottery is a joyous occasion, ending with a happy surprise for some lucky individual” (191). The lottery drawing is held at the town square where the school, post office, grocery store, and school are located. The children have just been dismissed from school for summer break and are eager to play. The boys begin to gather up stones and making piles. Readers at first see nothing wrong or symbolic about the gathering of these stones. According to Friedman, “The gathering of the stones in one corner of the square is part of the ceremony , performed by the......

Lucky Prawn Farms

...23 Maureen G. Mangaring CASE 1: LUCKY PRAWN FARM I. Point of View It is recommended to hire and take the point of view of a third party business consultant to avoid any form of bias or familial misunderstanding in the process of identifying the pertinent issues in the business together with the corresponding proposed solutions. II. Statement of the Problem How can the non-resident partners achieve active management control over the prawn farm’s operations? III. Analysis Based on the composition of the members of the partnership, it could be inferred that it is a general partnership, specifically a family partnership, as all of them are related. There were no formal or clear delineation of each partners’ roles and responsibilities in the venture, aside from the fact that Ben Torres acts as the operations manager and the other member are the non-resident partners based in Cebu, who contributed Php 25,000 each. Because the farm is located in Zamboanga, the other three members rely on Ben for the necessary updates and financial reports. However, instead of updating his partners and consulting them for decision making, Ben took the liberty of deciding and making transactions without the knowledge and approval of his partners. Probing the financial reports, Ben’s decisions clearly did not bring profits to the business, but entailed additional financing from the other partners. With this set-up, the non-resident partners bear much of the risk of the business,......

Lucky Prawn Farm

... Lucky Prawn Farm CASE CONTEXT The aquaculture industry in the Philippines is a major livelihood and employment opportunity, banking on the country’s rich supply of consumable marine life from its aquatic resources. Giant Fresh Prawn farming makes up a portion of the aquaculture industry. The Giant Freshwater Prawn locally known as ulang in the Philippines, is valued for its nutrition content and considered a promising aquaculture species for their high survival rate. Freshwater prawn can now give large ireturns with small investment. Prawn farming has started as an incidental harvest in milkfish water ponds. It was popular during the mid-1970’s in Japan and this gave way to prawn exports in 1975. Prawn farming was first introduced to the Philippines before the 1980’s. The real boom in production began in the mid-1980’s as rich families in the Visayas region started converting their sugar plantations into aquaculture business. They saw prawn farming as a more profitable alternative to sugar. In 1992, the prawn industry had its peak, earning approximately US$ 300 000 000 and became the top marine product export from the Philippines. However, certain diseases from marine products in the early 1990s caused significant decline in production. Prawns are typically cultivated in freshwater. A female prawn lays thousands to millions of eggs, which hatch after about a day. The hatched prawn are fed and develop into young prawn after about 12 days. Then, the post larvae are put either...

Yunnan Lucky Air

...Luck Air had a great business model, and that was to follow the same model as Southwest Airlines in the United States. Because Luck Air is considered a domestic airline in China they operate on a small scale compared to major competitors and so it made economical sense to offer low-cost, high-efficiency to their customers. In 2007 Lucky Air was able to more than double the amount of passengers from the year before by using a low-cost tactic. However other airlines have also caught on to offering low-cost fares for domestic routes to their passengers. With more competitors Lucky Air has decided to look at the possibility of taking a risk and to focus on e-commerce. Backed by their parent company Hainan Airlines, Luck Air has access to one of the most advanced web portals in the Chinese airline industry. But is e-commerce a good and viable option to compete with other airlines? Taking a look at what exactly e-commerce is important to grasp the understanding of how a business can operate, stay competitive and obtain a profit in a digital world. E-commerce involves digitally enabled transactions between and among organizations and individuals. Digitally enabled transactions include all those mediated by digital technology such as over the Internet, the Web and or via mobile apps. (Laudon & Traver, 2013, p. 55). Currently Airlines in China have high distribution costs which are fees paid to travel agents, the cost of staffing offices for direct offline......
