The Way It All Ends There I was, in my apartment, panicking, scrambling to get my things together. A backpack full of twinkies and hot pockets. Of course being a 19 year old residing in the suburbs of Detroit, I had a whole room full of guns….with no ammunition. PERFECT! I normally pack a .44 colt with me, but that’s for standard use, not against a horde of zombies. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, ZOMBIES. I’ve had confrontations with them for 2 years. However these zombies are unlike any I’ve ever seen. These zombies could run….fast. it was almost like they had been given an extra dose of human flesh for their daily meal today. I wasn’t thinking I would ever have to use the other guns I had in my trap door basement.
“My god! Where is my ammo?” I said in a very, unusual tone.
“I don’t know, so don’t ask me!” I had almost forgotten my girlfriend was in the other room. By that time, she had made her way to my part of the house and was just staring at me.
“Jesus Jessica, don’t creep up on me like that. You know I scare easily!” I said in a hyperventilating tone.
“Well how was I supposed to know that you forgot about me?” she asked in an angry and upset tone. You see, I was never the one to act quite right in front of girls, let alone in a world full of flesh eating freaks. After that statement was said, we both fell silent for a while.
“Im sorry Jess, I didn’t mean to sound mad at you, it just gets frustrating living in this world now.”
“Its fine John” she said in a blunt tone of voice. One thing I forgot to mention. My name. John Huntsfield, I’m from Saskatchewan up in Canada. I may be Canada native, but I don’t have that accent.
“If there’s one thing I know about you, Jess, when you say that, it’s the complete opposite. What’s wrong?”
“Leave me alone for a little bit. I’m tired and can’t think straight so please don’t talk to me.” Wow, see what…...

Paving the Way for Us All

...Through the years, the voices of numerous amounts of “normal” people emerged from the shadows to pave the way for us all. Those specific people had to fight through oppression and pain, in order to be heard by those in the present, as well as the future. At the turn of the century, the voices of the Native-Americans, African-Americans and females of all colors, were struggling to be heard by society. A strong Native-American warrior known as Black Elk, grew up striving for and succeeding in receiving the vision of life. Although it was a difficult task, he decided to “tell you the story of my life . . . if it were only the story of my life, I think I would not tell it”(Niehardt 1). Telling their story is very important for most people because it has the ability to be heard and utilized in the future. Black’s vision for telling his story was not to be just heard, but to help a young man, who embodies the same story, succeed in life. The struggle for the African-American has been on going since 1619 at the start of slavery. Although the 13th Amendment technically ended slavery. It was not until the early 1900s when W.E.B. DuBois realized that “the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line, ---the relation of the darker to the lighter races of men in Asia, Africa, in America and the Islands of the sea”(DuBois13). By DuBois acknowledging the problem that is evident at this time, opens the door for the people in the future. Females had a......

...that connects us and that breathes life into all things. Without love we are nothing. Love is the most mysterious thing that no one can unravel. There are two kinds of love, Human Love and Divine Love. Human love has expectations and is limited. Love from humanity is like to-love and to-be-loved. You need to love your neighbor so they can love you back. On the other hand, human love has its worst part: withdrawal. Not everyone we love will love us back. But with divine love, love is pure and sincere. God’s love is unconditional and constant. His love is never selfish and proud. It is kind and humble. Our God created the world for he wants to share his life to us. God loves us much more than himself. Even though we commit sins, he will never turn his back to us but instead he will love us more whereas his love is eternal. God give us what he has and what he is. He made mankind by his own form. He created the heavens, mountains, plants and oceans just for us to have a perfect life. God does not want us to suffer from any consequences. He does not want us to be hurt. That is how God loves us. Even though we are neglecting him, God’s love will never lose nor vanish but instead it will still be the same. In John 3:16, it is stated that “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. For me, John 3:16 is the most inspiring bible verse of all in such a way that it clearly depicts God’s......

Should Businese Help Society in All the Way They Can?

...When asked whether businesses are responsible for helping society in all the way they can, in my own perspective, the answer YES is more convincing. Helping society can let businesses enjoy many benefits likewise it is not difficult for them to do. By lending a helping hand to society, businesses can enjoy several advantages. Good reputation can be gained while positive company image can be built. The success is attributable to the responsible behaviors of firms. This increases consumers’ confidence, helps retain quality staff, attracts potential investors. Obviously, it is much more powerful than thinking of wonderful slogans. Besides, we also tend to see a chain effect as a result of providing good examples for other firms to follow. A business can be an originator of charity campaigns and make good use of their influences to help society. For example, McDonalds organized a charity Matterhorn on 3rd November, 2012 in Hong Kong. The event attracted many organizations in the business sector to come and support such as The Links and Commercial Radio. Ronald McDonalds House raised HK$5 million in the activity this time. Apart from that if firms can take initiative to help society, there will be less intense in government policies which force companies to comply with the social responsibility guidelines. For example, government may levy heavier taxes in order to obtain resources from businesses for helping society. This provides more freedom for businesses to run their......

...The End by Charles Olaleye It was January 1st 2015 when millions of people were shocked to hear about the death of Harry Styles. Police found him dead in the kitchen of his house. There was no murder weapon found on the scene of the death. When other members of One Direction were asked about the death of their former friend. They said they knew nothing of what could have happened to him. They said “he seemed like totally fine” What they did know was that he said he had to meet someone in a cemetery 10 minutes before he died. No one knows if that could have been the reason of his death. One month later police think they have a lead on the semi-recent shocking death of Harry Styles. A knife was found next to the dead body of Harry Styles. His body for some reason was found next to a tombstone that said Niall Horan on it. A little weird? The knife had no fingerprints on it and the body had no blood on it and looked completely fine. Then what could have caused this mysterious death? The grave under the tombstone that said Niall Horan on it was dug up by investigators and another clue was found. A hammer was inside the grave with a dent on it and the initials Z.M which could have stood for Zayn Malik. No one knows why that would be. Two months after the death of Harry Styles investigators have another lead on the investigation. Behind the tombstone that had the name Niall Horan on it was a gun that had the name Liam Payne on it ironically. Investigators asked Liam if......

All Good Things Must Come to an End: a Course Review

...LITR221 January 26, 2014 All Good Things Must Come to an End A Course Review of 2013-2014 Winter Semester of LITR 221 The amazing thing about literature is that it can be interrupted differently by each person who reads it. Which means that while one piece of writing is amazing, creative, and witty to one person to another person it could be the most boring, uninteresting, and redundant piece of literature they have ever read. In this semester of Literature 221, I was given the opportunity to read works from many different genres, time periods, and styles of writing. Some of which, like Emily Dickinson’s Life I and Life XLIII, Joyce Carol Oates’ Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?, and Sherman Alexie’s What You Pawn I Will Redeem I thoroughly enjoyed and learned from. While others such as Ernest Hemingway’s Big Two-Hearted River, Mark Twain’s excerpt When The Buffalo Climbed a Tree from Roughing It, and the excerpt from Sula by Toni Morrison weren’t exactly my cup of tea. Emily Dickinson is a remarkable poet who often writes from a very emotional and self-examining perspective. This is why I really enjoyed the two selections of her work we had to read this semester. In her first poem Life I, the very first two lines make you stop and think, “I’M nobody! Who are you? Are you nobody, too?” (Dickinson 2) Bam! I was hit in the face with self-reflection. Am I somebody? Or am I a nobody? Emily Dickinson continues by saying “how dreary to be somebody!”......

Justifying Reforms in the Ways States Selects Jurors to Insure Fairness to All.

...Justifying Reforms in the Ways States Selects Jurors to Insure Fairness to All. Joanne, Bartlett AIU Online   Justifying Reforms in the Ways States Selects Jurors to Insure Fairness to All. The Supreme Court has always defended it law that a defendant is not entitle to a jury composed in whole or in part of persons of his or her own race. But they do not stop states from doing so on their own. Some law maker has suggested that names of majority races jurors be removed from the jury list and others that a certain number of seats on jury are set aside for racial minorities. The only way to justify the use of removing the names of majority race jurors from the jury list might be to have them to really take a good look at how the jurors are selected so they can see that under current law it is impossible for African American, Latinos, and Asian American to really be judged by juries of their peers because of the way that the jurors are selected. A nonprofit law organization by the name of Equal Justice Initiative took a close look at jury selection procedures in about ten states and found out that African American is underrepresented in jury pool in 75% of the counties in the United States Latinos and Asian Americans are barred in 90% of counties (Equal Justice Initiative). This lack of racial diversity and the law in the selecting of jurors make it impossible for racial minorities in places like Cumming Ga... Which have been an all-white county for decades (Los......

...However it should be highlighted that Hobsons use of the term ‘financial kings’ did not denote the Rothschilds alone, but rather financing firms and financiers worldwide, J.P Morgan and John D. Rockerfeller in the United States being just a few of them. Then again Hobsons reference to the Rothschilds is an indictment to the family’s notoriety in world finance and politics, least of all in the intellectual sphere of economics. The relationship between Rhodes and Rothschild can be traced to a loan issued by Rothschild of £750,000 plus £250,000 in debentures in 1888, in order for De Beers to purchase several leading mining companies in the Kimberley mining district, at the time the richest area for diamond cultivation2. De Beers was seeking monopoly over diamond mining in the area; the only way to do this was through the acquisition of rival diamond mines, naturally this required capital. An extra £300,000 was forwarded by Rothschild to the company the same year, allowing De Beers to purchase shares in Kimberley Central, the only competing mining consolidate in Kimberley, and the main obstacle in the way of monopoly. In 1889 Kimberley Central - via the insistence of Rothschild to the managing 1 2 John Atkinson Hobson, Imperialism, A Study (1902) Pg. 64 Gardner Frederick Williams, The Diamonds Mines of South Africa (1904) 1 The significance of Cecil Rhodes on the British Empire directors of the company3 - liquidated and was naturally swallowed up by De Beers, hence......

...angle. After generating all of these solutions it is then time to decide on a plan of action. This next step is very important and also very difficult. Deciding a course of action from the numerous solutions that were generated can prove to be difficult, many of the solutions may appear to be the best and correct solution to the problem. Many solutions may work, but decision analysis may rule out some solutions after deciding potential problems that could arise. Determining what might go wrong is vital and will help to produce preventive actions to keep from developing an additional problem. Once a course of action is in place it is time to implement that solution. Implementing the solution requires a lot of organization and planning. Managing time and resources is very important during this step. This step has the largest potential of problems due to unforeseen events or new problems arising. Finally evaluate the solution to the problem, making sure every step was covered and the real problem was solved. The evaluation step should not only be the last step, but also used during each and every step along the way to solving a problem. This step may also return you back to any of the previous steps if the real problem was not defined, the best solution was not used, or poor management of time and resources. The problem-solving heuristic is a great tool and guide to coming up with a solution to the problem. Using and implementing all five steps will greatly......

It Didnt End the Way I Planned

...Wasif Nawed Kevin Watson Writing Seminar 16 February 2015 IT DIDN’T END THE WAY I PLANNED IT WOULD “HELP!” I shouted as my vision started to get blurry. I was drowning and everything was turning black. But suddenly I started seeing everything clearly which made me stand straight up on my bed while I fought to get out of a temporary shock. “It was a dream” I scoffed. Then I heard my sister, “got…!!” she could hardly speak because she was busy laughing. I saw a glass in her hand and realized that she must’ve poured that water in the glass on my face to wake me up. It was a perfect morning with a perfectly fine weather and the birds were singing. I thought, ‘nothing could go wrong today’. Today, it was a week after my birthday, so my father decided to make it up to me because last week everyone had a busy schedule. Hence, my birthday wasn’t celebrated at all. I got out of my bed and walked straight into the bathroom to take a shower. I then heard my father. “Wasif come out soon, we got to leave in an hour,” he said. I hurried myself in the shower wondering where we are going to go. Anyways, I put my clothes on went down for the breakfast. The moment I came down I saw my father waiting for me already.

In the End...

...Djenaba O’Connor Potter STS-900 20 April 2015 In The End… In the Heaven Scenario, all life on Earth will be subject to what technology wants to happen to it. Technology has progressed to the point of total control, but there is nothing to worry about. The technology is safe and everyone loves it. They use it to focus on the beauty and culture and the other fine things in life. Ideas that weren’t possible have come to existence. In the Hell Scenario, the technology that was supposed to safe us ends up condemning us. We will fight with one another, nation against nation, to gain control of the fast growing power of the technologies we built. But we will be so helpless, no type of agreement can be reached. Just like in the Heaven Scenario, things that were impossible before will come to pass. Only this time, they will be horrid things. In the Prevail Scenario, we humans begin to slowly take back the world we created for ourselves. Though technology will always be a part of who we are, what we do, and how we do it, we will control the technology. Not the other way around. As James Lanier put it, “Humans have an uncanny history of muddling through.” In other words, we will find a way to become relevant once more. We will find a way to come back from the corner we let technology back us into, and we will come out strong on the other side. No, it will not be easy, but it can be done. I am very much a people person and do not care so much for the many technological......

My big life decision came to me when I turned twenty one and I bought a brand new car. A side note the brand of the car is a Chevy Cruze. When buying a new car there comes responsibility with that came a long process but here I will describe it in a shorter way.

All Shakespearean Comedies End in Marriage. “as You Like It” Ends in Four. Does This Mean Shakespeare Has Presented an Idealistic View of Marriage?

...extent, today) marriage had a large role when trying to achieve a stable, happy life. However, debate arises when discussing whether or not ‘love’ plays an important part in an ideal marriage. ‘As You Like It’ encourages audiences to recognize marriage in many different and unconventional ways. For example, Phebe and Silvius have a marriage based on unrequited love. Phebe and Silvius have a partnership that can be interpreted as a more pessimistic view on marriage; thus, opposing the idea of idealistic marriage. Much alike Romeo from Romeo and Juliet, Silvius is written as a “Petrarchan lover,” – a man who is hopelessly in love with a woman who does not share the same feelings. This can be shown through quotations such as, “Say that you love me not, but say not so in bitterness.” Their marriage is, in many ways, far from ideal. Silvius is destined to spend the rest of his days with a woman who does not love him, while Phebe is destined to spend the rest of hers with a man whom she does not love herself. Their pairing seems to be the most negative of all the marriages as Phebe only agrees to marry him due to having to reject Ganymede. Rosalind also says, “Sell when you can: you are not for all markets,” implying Phebe has little choice when selecting a husband. This highlights a fundamental problem with the idea of marriage: settling out of fear of being left unmarried. Shakespeare brings an interesting problem to the spotlight, questioning our reasons for getting married......

From the Street Cart All the Way Up to the Exquisite Dining Table…

...From the Street Cart all the way up to the exquisite Dining Table… Based on the infamous common saying of “You are what you eat”; some may argue that they do not possess the freedom of choice in what they choose to eat on a daily basis throughout their life due to the external factors that affect their decision making. With limited income and resources, many people from the lower social backgrounds tend to have a restricted culinary menu of which they can opt to eat from. Investigating the other end of the scale of where the wealthier level of the social ladder are looked at closely; you will find the inverse of this trend where the range of eating preferences are limitless and not bound by any spending power restrictions, thus giving them the liberty to indulge in an abundance of edible choices. I am thoroughly interested in studying the eating habits of the wealthy and the un-wealthy classes in Egypt. My objective behind this research is to gain an understanding of the differences in terms of eating behavior according to their social background. My aim was to identify their likes, dislikes, thoughts, perceptions and motivations behind certain choices. By studying those factors closely, the motives behind consumption of different classes based on their economic circumstances were revealed. The reason behind this study was to yield significantly valuable information and insight into the eating habits of the rich and poor segments in Egypt. By doing this, I was able to......

If the number is a whole number (ie. no decimal), add a decimal point to the end of the number. Add zeroes to empty spaces on the right to line up the columns. Ads by Google Math Worksheets  Free Math Worksheets K-8 Math Practice 2. 2 Starting on the right, add the numbers in that column and put the answer directly under the column. If the answer is greater than 10, place the last number under the column and any remaining numbers above the column directly to the left (commonly referred to as "carry over"). 3. 3 Add all columns in the same manner as step 2, being careful to remember any numbers that carried over from the previous column. 4. 4 Place a decimal point in the answer directly below the decimal point in the numbers above. Counting from the decimal point to the left, put a comma after every third digit. Adding by Regrouping One of the wonderful things about addition is that the order doesn't matter --- assuming you're adding only positive numbers, of course! This flexibility allows you to rearrange your addition problems to suit yourself. Some examples: 27 + 19 can become (27 + 3) + 16 which then becomes 30 + 16 for a final answer of 46 54 + 38 can become (50 + 30) + (4 + 8) which then becomes 80 + 12 for a final answer of 92 125 + 16 can become 125 + 5 + 11 or possibly 125 + 10 + 6, for a total of......
