Because naming rights not only generate huge revenue annually, but also selling naming rights barely cost

The following excerpt from the book explains Hepzibah’s reaction to Clifford telling her they must leave: ” Hepzibah had reached this point. Unaccustomed to action or responsibility,--full of horror at what she had seen, and afraid to inquire, or almost to imagine, how it had come to pass,--affrighted at the fatality which seemed to pursue her brother,--stupefied by the dim, thick, stifling atmosphere of dread, which filled the house as with a death-smell, and obliterated all definiteness of thought,--she yielded without a question, and on the instant, to the will which Clifford expressed. ” (Hawthorne, chapter 16) Although she is overcome with fear and anxiety Hepzibah does leave the house with Clifford as she loves him and trusts his decision. In conclusion, there were many ways in which Hepzibah experienced significant life changes.
This demonstrates how Catherine changed throughout the book, because there is a change of tone between the two quotes. In the beginning of the book, Catherine is reluctant to write in the journal, and she constantly complains about her situation. Her account is also pretty selfish, as she thinks of no one but herself. However, by the second quote, it is obvious that Catherine has changed. She compares herself to the Jews that stopped by her manor, meaning that she is also thinking of others.

Differences between people have been around since the begin of mankind, they have started great disasters such as every war ever started, deaths, and sometimes disappears. In the nonfiction passage Confetti Girl, by Diana Lopez, and the nonfiction text from Tortilla Sun, by Jennifer Cervantes, both the narrator's point of views differ from those of their parents, therefore creating conflict between each other.

In Tortilla Sun the other little girl feels her mother cares only about getting her degree and is not concerned about the needs of the girl. In Diana’s story the tension is created when the girl is not treated the way she was used to, and when her father is not listening to her conversation, in Jennifer’s story tension rises when things don't go the right way, and when bad news is given.
Reasons for Founding The reason for the founding of Interstate Battery System International, Inc. would all appear to have occurred based on John Searcy’s natural ability and talents to work in the battery industry. “One day a fella came in with a battery under his arm, saying he had a ‘bird’s nest on the ground’ while Mr. Searcy was working as an aviation underwriter (“Humble Beginnings,” 2007).

I don’ like Curley.” (pg. 89 Steinbeck) With this Curley 's wife attempts to explain for the first time her unhappy marriage to Curley. In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton Cherry Valance 's relationship with Bob is portrayed similarly: Bob is always drinking and Cherry hates Bob 's personality and impulsive actions, but she seems too scared to break up with him because she might lose her status in the gang.
