Birman Orignally from Burma, where it was held as a sacred animal, the Birman is a large, stocky animal with long hair. The coat of the Birman is not prone to matting, making it easier to care for than some other breeds. The personality of the Birman is considered nearly ideal by many cat owners and cat breeders: at once sweet, quiet, playful, and energetic. The long coat is tipped and is generally a light color with a golden glow. The eyes of this breed are very round and blue.
Mia North Mrs. Asselin Language Arts 6/7 10 Mar, 2016 Respect Your Heart The article “Joyas Voladoras” by Brian Doyle is about the hearts of hummingbirds, whales and people. He talks about how our hearts and lives are beautiful and unique. You should respect your life because you only have one so live to the fullest. Right off the bat, Doyle talks about how beautiful and unique hummingbirds are, “Joyas Voladoras, flying jewel… for hummingbirds came into the world only in the Americas…”(p.29, l.5-8). In saying that hummingbirds only came to the Americas is pretty much saying that hummingbirds are unique and we should respect their lives.
Because this Scandinavian liked her voice, he encouraged his friends to hear her as well;they liked her voice too and she became very famous and popular in the Scandinavian territories. Another big achievement was when she performed in the Salzburg festival! She was not only famous in Europe, her fame and popularity grew over seas and was considered “the best singer in the world”. The reason why all these achievements are so clear, is because of the good diction and tone that Hughes uses. The tone in this passage sounds very biographical and very formal.
The skeletal system of the Northern Pintail has many advantages over some of the dabbling ducks the Pintail co-exist with. The bird has hollow bones all over its body to reduce weight, in return helping with flight. On the note of flight, the hinged wing bones are some of the least dense bones
Girls have always wished for a prince charming: that’s Gatsby. Gatsby is like the sprinkles to an ice cream, bright and colorful, like a lion who protects who he loves, and like a hungry eagle that doesn’t stop chasing what it wants. Jay Gatsby shows love and loyalty by making everything he does beneficial for himself and the ones he really cares about. He admits who he was and where he came from, but he did whatever it took to have the future he wanted with his love, Daisy. He is perhaps not loyal to many, but he is loyal to himself and the goals he wants to accomplish.
Flyboys is a movie which is fairly accurate for the most part but there are still few inaccuracies which are why it is considered only fairly accurate. Flyboys does a good job in an accurate portrayal of the Lafayette Escadrille and the other fighter pilots values, beliefs, training and the toll of tragedies on them mentally, but when it comes down to their military strategy, airplanes and different modes of transportation, it begins to become somewhat inaccurate. From the beginning of the movie you can begin to see the men’s values and the heavy drinking did and also promoted. This is very accurate as alcoholism was a very big problem throughout WW1. Every evening after the men had been out fighting they would all go to the bar and drink
Then, more quietly, wut”. This vivid description of the joyful sounds of the birds composes a beautiful melody that is reminiscent of Jim’s time back home. This helps to distract Jim from the reality of war and places him in a peaceful moment all to himself.

In Part I, Chapter 5, Chapter 5 ends with an almost Romantic view because it shows how Alexandra felt the future stirring before her because of the land. It says, “She looked at the stars which glittered so keenly through the frost autumn air. It fortified to reflect upon the great operators of nature and she felt a sense of personal security. The chirping of the insects down in the long grass had been like the sweetest music. She had felt as if her heart was somewhere with the quail and the plover and all the little whild things that crooned or buzzed in the sun.” In Part II, Chapter 5, Marie has a Romantic view of the birds.
Sometimes I see families flying kites or riding bike, the blue sky is just the best canvas for the colorful kites to decorate with. Sometimes I can hear the busker singing songs; it is really nice to listen to the songs in a quiet park instead of the crowded city.

I usually forget about time while staying here, being here just charges me up for the upcoming
