Miranda, I like your point that any type of plagiarism is thought of as just as severe as another. Regardless of the intent, it still comes down to that it is the taking of someone else 's work and passing it off as your own. I feel that sometimes it does happen truly unintentionally. No matter how it came about, though, it basically is thought of as a theft. I agree that the Washington Post reporter handled the situation in a good way by admitting her wrongdoing and apologizing for it.
I stand by Barbara Kingsolver’s argument that all families that have been faced with divorce are not necessarily “broken” families. Depending on the reasons for the divorce, the result will be what the family makes of it. I appreciate how the author made it a point to state that “The Prince Charming Theory of Marriage” is not comparable to a real life marriage, seeing how no one has a perfect relationship such as that. Kingsolver then compares divorce to amputating a gangrenous leg; suggesting that no one wishes for these things to happen, they just happen.
When Antigone announces, “ I am not afraid of danger”, she is confessing her dis-concern for what will happen to her if she acts upon her plan. She is not afraid of Creon or what he will do to her, she is only focused on burying Polyneices. She is very courageous to even think about defying Creon. Antigone then goes to Creon to voice her opinion him, to which he replies, “Who is the man here, She or I, if this crime goes unpunished (Source A)?”
"The Trail of Martha Carrier" explained how these "questionable things" were Martha fault. The people that they had confess against here almost made the trail seemed that they community already made up their minds about her innocence. I think you bring up a good point that she is innocent until proven
When first hearing her introduction I didn’t quite understand how that was going to tie back in with her speech, but once she finished her introduction it began to make a little more sense. In addition, in her concluding paragraph she tied her belief of not being sorry for being herself into her attention getter like her weird scarf collection, or her never killing bugs. Not apologizing if you don’t mean it, gratitude is greater than apologies, and not being sorry for who you are were three main points that struck me the most from “No Apology Living.” Megan did a good job of really persuading me to want to live a life like this. It is a way that could help turn my life into being more positive.
Most importantly it creates the idea that it is the responsibility of that person to make sure something terrible does not happen to them. This form of blaming is pervasive in our society, but in Atwood’s novel there are several examples as well. As Atwood writes, “Modesty is invisibility, said Aunt Lydia. Never forget it. To be seen… is to be… penetrated.
While still having exiled her from Corinth, the royal family shows many kindnesses to Medea that are not required, and in return Medea has them fatally poisoned. Her actions benefit no one but herself and go against everything not only motherhood stands for, but that humanity stands for. Because of these reasons, Jason should not be considered the villain of this play, but instead the murderous witch Medea should
It’s like you are punishing her for the failure of your first marriage. Didn’t you learn anything from that? “I don’t know. I never gave it any thought.” “Ester and I have some differences, but we do enjoy the company of each other so we are willing to accept imperfections in each other.
Kambili refuses to implicate her father in his own acts of violence through the formulation of her sentences. She removes the blame from her phrases and in this way power relations are depicted through the use of specific linguistic choices and language placement. I wanted to say “Yes, Papa,” because he was right, but the burning on my feet was climbing up, in swift courses of excruciating pain, to my head and lips and eyes.” (194) Her admiration and respect for him causes her to remove the blame and ignore Eugene’s abusive actions. Kambili continuously removes agency from her statements when talking about her father.
In the reading of quote 5 she says “I have done things, too, which I would not tell you, son-neither tell God, if he didn’t already know.” she admits to doing wrong in her which shows she isn’t ashamed of him. Mrs. Jones states she has done wrong in her life it’s like she is telling him that nobody is perfect therefore one human cannot simply judge another based off their actions. Mrs. Jones’ actions is what determines the theme of this short
reviewed that we had reached out several time to TPC and finally they accepted the information we provided. Insd wanted to ensure this did not happen to others and I assured him I would provide the information to our express team for coaching of our contingent workers taking the claim information to ensure all information is provided. agreed that we failed to provide the service he should have expected and based on the delays, customer service, loss of interest on his out of pocket and inconvenience I would be happy to provide customer service in the amount of $550.00 which insd accepted but stated he would have still rated the service as indicated because he wants it know it is not acceptable for information in an investigation not to be documented on a claim. This is evidence and like working a fire all evidence is critical to the investigation.
Malcolm Gladwell's writing broadened my perspective on plagiarism. In "Something Borrowed," Malcolm Gladwell thought briefly, his work was being used without giving him credit. I feel that Gladwell's three problems with plagiarism is with the why, what and how aspect. Why had his work been copied, what of his work had been copied and how was his work being used. In looking for the answers, I think Gladwell started to better understand the use of his work.
