Envision a life where you are constantly cursed for something that isn’t your fault. John Ball has demonstrated the intense discrimination of 1960s America through his novel, In the Heat of the Night. Virgil Tibbs, a primary character in the novel, is a respected homicide detective from Pasadena, California. And during a stopover to his trip to Washington, Vigil Tibbs was involuntarily involved in solving the murder of the wealthy conductor, Enrico Mantoli. Despite the obstacles of determining the true killer and consistent discrimination towards his dark skin, Virgil Tibbs has proven himself in the narrow-minded town of Wells, Carolina.
Co-sleeping is a hotly debated topic between mothers and scholars alike. Should children and infants sleep with their parents or should they sleep in their own space? Many people believe that co-sleeping is vastly superior and has numerous benefits, short-term and long-term, while others believe that co-sleeping is dangerous. A large divide between those who are for co-sleeping and those who are against it comes from cultural differences in the Western world and everywhere else. I will be arguing that co-sleeping is natural and that parents should be encouraged to co-sleep with their children by pediatricians and parent educators.
Howard Hawk’s The Big Sleep is one of many films that has taken the crown for best film noir genre. The story is about a private investigator who’s hired by General Sternwood to deal with a blackmailer.

This is just the beginning for the Marlowe as he is being led deeper into shadows of Los Angeles.
The book The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler is seen as the archetype of a Hard Boiled Fiction book. This genre describes unsentimental stories that are heavy in violence, corruption, and flippant humor. In The Big Sleep private detective Philip Marlowe is hired by the wealthy General Sternwood to stop a blackmailer while also finding the whereabouts of Rusty Reagan. Film Noir was derived from Hard Boiled Fiction with many of the same characteristics such as a femme fatale, a conflicted hero, and a variety of new characteristics like shadows and use of guns. The movie Casablanca directed by Michael Curtiz is a Film Noir and in the movie a wealthy bar owner named Rick Blaine, gets his world flipped upside down when his past lover Ilsa Lund shows

In the novel The Big Sleep, by Raymond Chandler, there are many conflicts between two characters that are subtle and do not feel like conflicts, but it is evident they are through his use of similes and metaphors. The scene when Carmen sneaks into Marlow’s apartment and waits for him naked is one of the better examples of these scenes when a subtext battle exists. Chandler first sets up the idea that Marlow is meant to be the knight in shining armor by echoing the earlier scene when Marlow first steps into General Sternwood’s home. The scene Marlow walks into when he enters his home is Carmen lying under his covers, her “tawny wave of hair…spread out on the pillow as if by a careful and artificial hand” (Chandler, 154).

There are millions of reasons one prefers not to spend their valuable time at Yosemite. No internet, no cellular connection, treacherous drive, very limited civilization, and very unpredictable weather are few of the many excuses I have heard. However, there is one reason why everyone would go. It is the serene beauty Yosemite has to offer that is a getaway from the stressful lives we all endure. It is so generously picturesque, it stays in our mental cameras forever.

In this series, it is not detectives who solve the crime, rather it is a group of attorneys and students getting together to prove their client is innocent. It does not necessarily matter if this client is innocent, the main goal to make it seem like they are. In process with steps of deduction and evidence they come to the root of what really happened to figure out if their client is indeed innocent, hence why it can easily be mistaken for crime-fiction. However, ‘The Twenty Rules for Crime Fiction’ states that ‘The detective novel must have a detective in it; and a detective is not a detective unless he detects. His function is to gather clues that will eventually lead to the person who did the dirty work in the first chapter’(Van Dine 1928: para.7).
Sleep Journal and Reflection Paper Amber Ivy American Public University System Before, during, and after the logging of my sleep journal, I learned an abundance of information about myself in accordance to the dreams I had been having. The last ten days I logged what I was eating, when I went to bed, how many times I woke up during the night, and when I woke up for the day. As soon as I woke up for the day, I wrote as much as I could remember about the dream/ s I had.
H. Auden, in an essay The Guilty Vicarage, describes how the detective novels depict not just one guilty criminal, but, by putting the of suspicion on each and every member of the closed society, marks each and every member as such. The detective, by identifying the criminal and purging them from the society absolves the guilt of the entire society. According to Auden, the detective absolves not just the suspects of their guilt, but provides the same absolution/salvation to the readers of detective fiction also. Auden thus, points out some of the more unwitting functions of detective fiction, that is, to work as a literary embodiment of a mechanism which assumes everybody to be guilty and thereby the need of subjecting all to confession. In The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, once the confessions from all major characters is extracted, the most significant of all confessions still remains -- that of the murderer.
The Cambridge Dictionaries Online defines sleepaway camp as “a place where children can go to stay without their parents and do activities”. As someone who never gone to sleepaway camp, I have a somewhat biased view of sleepaway camps as something that is not healthy for children, but as a writer, I have done research on sleepaway topics to see how people today in the 21st century view it. When a child goes to sleepaway camp, they have a chance to meet kids who are different from friends in their hometown, but on the other hand, they miss valuable time with their parents that they don’t get during the school year especially if at least one of the parents don’t work at a full-time job. Parents can do as much research as they want to the camp they could be sending their children to but they there
Detective fiction is one of the most popular forms of fiction in America. In his article, “American Detective Fiction,” Robin W. Winks addresses the fact that in spite of this popularity, the genre has received little critical attention that studies the work for itself. He explains the two types of errors that critics have made when looking at detective fiction: the high road, where critics claim classic works were detective fiction all along, and the low road, where critics poorly execute their analysis and simply give detailed plot summaries. Winks then goes on to describe how American detective fiction has something to offer because it reflects how the society of the time sees itself. This article is mostly effective in proving its claims
2 Sleep Deprivation in the Nursing Profession Sleep deprivation is known as a condition of not getting enough sleep that can affect the brain and cognitive functions. "It occurs when a person sleeps for fewer hours than necessary over multiple days or week" (Eanes, 2015). When we think of nurses we are reminded of people who promote the health of others. However, many are unknowingly compromising their own health by working those 12-hour shifts. Many times, its more than 12 hours when they are finally able to go home.
The authors of the Golden Age shows their faith and belief in the detectives (emphatically vulnerable detectives). The detectives in these stories dominate the plot and solve the mystery case by influencing the perspective of the reader. The detectives mostly are self-conscious and Golden Age does not expect the reader to solve the crime ahead of the detective. They are decidedly unaggressive, non-god like, nondominant and do not exude ‘macho-like’ qualities of a ‘real he-man’. In the Detective Fiction, detectives fall into three broad categories; amateurs, private investigators, and the professional police.
