Although both works are book-length they do not cover Thatcher’s whole life instead only certain periods of her life. The Autobiography despite containing The Downing Street Years and The Path to Power is nonetheless an autobiographical book however only because of one change the publisher made. The difference is that the single-volume edition reversed the orders of the works. Narratively, The Downing Street Years the work published first is about Margaret Thatcher’s political career as British prime minister while The Path to Power the second deals with her life prior to 1979. Reversing the order of the two works in The Autobiography creates a narration of events in chronological order thus fulfilling the previously missing requirement of an
Instead, she inquired about events that elicited a narrative response. Most of Anguiano’s testimony relied on her perceptions, interpretations, and judgments of events like the Watts Riots, the War on Poverty, etc. Although it was clear that the women had developeded a relationship based on mutual respect, the listener is left wondering if the dynamics of the relationship would have been different if the narrator did not have Anguiano’s education and leadership skills. How could Espino effectively communicate and build this same trust with a different kind of narrator? Espino would perhaps have to go to extra measures to ensure she and the interviewer could establish shared authority.
In “Choices” and “The Veldt” the comparison in what led to the betrayals is very similar, along with who betrayed the characters. In “Choices” Peggy, the main character, has a decision to make, and she ends up making one that is not in her best interest. Perhaps the wrong decision was made because “[She] only [has] a little while to make up her mind.” Similarly, in “The Veldt” the parents of George and Lydia, decided to raise their kids to grow up in a modern and technology based home because “Nothing is to good for [their] children.”
Cullington after summarizing her research and having said both sides of opinions about texting affecting writing, she used the results as evidence of why Cullington disagreed that texting has no effect in writing. “On the basis of my own research, experts research, and personal observations, I can confidently state that texting is not interfering with student’s use of standards written English…” (Cullington 370). As you can see she used the strategy of disagreeing but with an explanation and summarized what her discoveries were. Cullington also agreed that texting is used on an everyday basis and at every moment that is possible. To agree to this Cullington included her own personal experience as a reference that texting effectively is used anywhere at any
When looking at how that was accomplished, it seems that the statement of intent theme, the author sharing their interpretation of or intention for the text with its reader, was used. This is a good idea because it ensures that the reader has a good understanding of the thought that was put into the text and the author’s intentions. It will indeed, guarantee that the reader walks away with an understanding of the purpose. Now the purpose and the process for the paratexts that make up chapter 1 are completely different.
My mentor turned to me after Sean had moved and explained that it wasn’t the rules that triggered her to ask for the removal of the hat, but rather the fact that the hat disgusted her. I didn’t push for an explanation from her as to why she didn’t like the hat, but simply settled with the idea that it wasn’t allowed because of the district dress code. However, I did think that dress code was a necessary thing that is implemented in schools. Essex made a relative point in his article StudeNt DreSS CodeS USiNg Zero ToLeraNce? , stating that, “Sound judgement by school officials should guide decisions regarding dress code violations.
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.
While reading the book, it is very clear that the reader is supposed to understand that we only know Margo through Q’s eyes. As the book progresses, it is obvious that Q does not really know Margo, but he sees her as perfect; “Margo’s beauty was a kind of sealed vessel of perfection – uncracked and uncrackable” (Green 47). When he makes the journey to solve her clues, he begins to learn about who Margo really is as a person. The moment that Q finds Margo in Agloe, and she tells him the reason she will not return with him, he starts to realize that no one is perfect. Not even Margo.
She made it seem like everything was normal up until this point. The author uses red herring by having Sissy actually be Teresa. This resulted in us wondering what was going on, and what would happen next. She made it seem like the answer to what she was looking for was somewhere else, and that maybe another event happened that she didn’t want the readers to think could happen. But really the answer was right in front of Ali the whole time.
In the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot, the author demonstrates the harsh realities that many African Americans faced in the medical and scientific field during the mid 20th century. The author shows the unjust practices of this time period through interviews with the Lacks family and medical professionals. These harsh realities are proven when Skloot talks to Henrietta’s family. Henrietta’s husband, Day, explains how they took samples from Henrietta’s body without consent when Skloot writes, “Day clenched his remaining three teeth. "I didn't sign no papers," he said.
Henrietta Lacks was thirty years old and found a ‘knot’ on her cervix, which led to her going to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer and treated with radium and x-ray therapy. Some of the tissue was removed from her tumor and sent to George Gey’s lab to be grown in test tubes. Gey was in charge of the Tissue Culture Department at Hopkins and had been researching and experimenting to attempt to make cells to divide so they could have an unlimited supply of cells to experiment on. Henrietta nor her family knew about the tissue sample and neither Gey or Hopkins informed them.
The primary ethical issue is that doctors took Henrietta Lacks’ cells without permission. Doctor Gey forgot the patient and focused his attention on the research. Doctor Gey’s self- interest and quest for recognition allowed him to cross ethical boundaries. He took advantage of Henrietta Lacks when she was sick, vulnerable and in need of medical attention therefore, one must question his moral judgment.
I first heard about Henrietta Lacks story after noticing and advertisement of Oprah Winfrey directing or possibly playing the role of Ms. Lacks. Reading the caption underneath the picture posted I decided to inquire more about the Henrietta Lacks. Ms. Lacks was an African American woman who found out in 1951 after a biopsy, Lacks was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The manifestation of the tumor was unlike anything that had ever been seen by the examining gynecologist Dr. Howard Jones. Henrietta Lacks was treated at the segregated John Hopkins Hospital with radium tube inserted and sewn into her body, a standard treatment at that time sewn in her body.
