In America, we are protected by certain laws and right. We have the Bill of Rights which protects certain freedoms that other countries do not get to experience. We are very privileged in that sense. Amendment four, five, six, and eight are called the Rights of the accused. They protect those against abuse by the federal government.
Over the course of this week we read two works of writing. One is the short story “Rip Van Winkle” by Washington Irving in 1819. The other is Benjamin Franklin’s Autobiography. These two stories are pinnacle pieces of literature. One being a well known fictional work through the United States, the other is the writing of and by one of America’s Founding Fathers.
Three readings from this week, combined with the readings from last week of overarching themes, got me thinking about how I have been considering Indigenous student experiences. In fact, I have not given too much thought on the issue until I encountered it as one of the topics in a course last term. I found myself relating to Indigenous student experiences, in terms of learning needs, to a certain extent as a recent immigrant student from South Korea. That led me to enrol in this course, and I find this opportunity to be a good learning experience as each reading material presents me new insights about Indigenous student experiences. From the information presented in Pidgeon’s (2008) dissertation, I was quite frustrated how difficult
The theme of this story is one of personal freedom and trying to be true to yourself while being a part of something else, like a marriage. During the book Mrs. Mallard was in a mixed emotions with her hearing about her husband dying and her being emotional about it, her telling herself that she is finally free and then finding out he was alive when he walked through the door. In "The Story of an Hour" the central idea would be when she posits the idea that a woman's life may actually be better without a husband. It was a radical idea at the time. In the older days it was assumed that women were the lesser sex and that men needed to make the important decisions in a family.
Although the story and the film bear remarkable similarities, the differences between the decision making process in both them are trivial. In the story, Tom Walker knew that all dealings with the devil are final, he also knew exactly who Old Scratch was right from the beginning, and he was foolish enough to try and change that. Furthermore, in the story, Tom Walker and Wife harbored so much detestation for each other. That in decision making process they didn’t stand united, and as a result they both sought after wealth in their separate ways and as result it lead to the horrible nature of their deaths. Whereas, in the film the couple stood united and loved each other, however they didn’t know that after they had pressed the button
In my opinion, freedom of speech is one of our most sacred constitutional rights as Americans; therefore the role reversal that has taken place within the past few decades regarding freedom of speech does not phase me. As someone who considers themselves a fairly strong conservative I'm smart enough to realize that the Republican party is flawed and the constituents who make up the party are even more so. My view of the Constitution does not come from that of a conservative, but from someone who interprets the Constitution based off of how the founders viewed it. While Ronald Reagan was by far my favorite president by no means was he perfect. Even though I'm a Republican and strong supporter of Reagan if I was alive back in 1966
Introduction Dried blood spot cards commonly abbreviated as DBS were first shown to public in 1963. It was a simpler way to find out whether the patients were suffering from metabolic diseases.

Authors write stories sometimes based on their beliefs, despite conflicting influences like society or normalities of eras. Because of this, their themes can be quite straightforward and based on the time period. In Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper,” and Susan Glaspell's “A Jury of Her Peers,” the female protagonists have the craving for freedom from their state of living; this passion of freedom shapes their environment and influences on the people they love and on their own self. In Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour,” the main protagonist, Mrs. Mallard, suddenly realizes that she has the potential to be free after hearing the statement of her husband’s death.
Banksy is best known for his ability to impact any location with is striking graffiti and street art while maintaining a secret identity. In 2010, Time magazine added him on the list as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world (Ellsworth-Jones 1). He has had an active lifestyle within the graffiti world since the 1990s where he initially started out with graffiti crews in his hometown Bristol by the name of DryBreadZ (DBZ). Banksy started his career with freehand work but quickly adapted to using stencils because of the time urgency needed when creating street art. Some common subjects of his artwork include rats, apes, policeman, the royal family and children.
Two Different Periodic Times There are two stories that talk about American in the 20th century, and we can notice the differences and similarities between that time in America and now in Iraqi Kurdistan. The two stories that are compared to Iraqi Kurdistan’s culture and society are The Killer and Good Country People. The first story talks about two criminals who enter a lunch-room, and they are very rude.
