The thesis of this chapter states that in certain situations, it is crucial to listen to a medical professional, however, in others, it is very important to listen to yourself and also to do what you feel is right. The author of Complications," Atul Gawane, has written this specific chapter to persuade the reader of his thesis. If the choice you make is incorrect, then it could potentially be a matter of life and death. Atul Gawande gives multiple examples of patients that have made wrong and right decisions to prove his point. He uses the personal anecdotes of four different people, with four decisions to prove his point.
He had seen firsthand how African Americans experienced brutality growing up. He had seen this when Jess Alexander Helms a police officer brutalized a black woman, and dragged her to the jail house. He had explained it as “the way a caveman would club and drag his sexual prey”. This shows how little rights African Americans had in these days because he was unable to do anything. All of this happened while other African American individuals walked away hurriedly.
Have you ever thought it was you against the world? Out of control? No purpose? This is nothing compared to the force and horror the African slaves in both Ghana and America felt. Gyasi’s characters James, Abena, and Ness were forced and manipulated into situations they never intended to be in.
Figurative language is sometimes used to make events have certain moods such as happiness, sadness, mystery, and suspense. The book focuses on a deadly virus that is highly contagious and is very oppressive. The virus had originated from the central rainforests of Africa, then had suddenly appeared in Germany. The book describes how Charles Monet bled out from the disease in the Nairobi Hospital waiting room, how monkeys contributed to spreading the disease, the effects the virus has on the body, and how the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, or USAMRIID tested the virus on monkeys and tried to find a cure for the virus. In The Hot Zone, by Richard Preston, the author uses figurative language such as foreshadowing
The burden of the black man is the time in the lives of the Africans where they have to defend themselves from the colonizers, or to them, the white westerners. In the poem The Black Man’s Burden, by H.T. Johnson in 1899 as a reply to The White Man’s Burden, Johnson says “Pile on the Black Man’s Burden/ His wail with laughter drown/You’ve sealed the Red Man’s problem/And will take up the Brown.” (Johnson 9-12) This excerpt shows readers exactly what the Africans were forced to go through.
In both texts there are a lot of crime. “American skin” could refer to the little black kid who was shot by the police, because the text says “41 shots” and “you can get killed just for living” which fits well for the little black kid who got shot in the text “The Baddest Dog in Harlem” The message in this text, is to show the problem of insulting black people, not only do they have to live with the fear of gangs and gunmen but they also have to live with the prejudices from cops and white people, so I think the message is to show how things really are in the real world, and to stop
Gyasi wrote this book because she wanted to show how African Americans were treated and how the tribes in Ghana were part of the slave trade. She talks about how, even after slavery ended, African Americans struggled to have a good life and to give their children a good life as well because of the way other people treated them. She also wanted to show the different
Diphtheria was a very serious disease that was discovered in 1921. In the short story “Use of Force”, a young girl struggles with being honest to her parents. She had a serious disease and thought that if she pretended it wasn’t there, then no one will know. She feared the consequences of what could happen if her parents found out the truth. The fear of death is shown throughout the story by the authors use of descriptive language and metaphors.
In “The Use of Force” of William Carlos Williams, I agree with the way that the doctor treats Mathilda for two reasons. Firstly, there’s no other appropriate way to treat Mathilda. In order to treat Mathilda, the doctor has to examine the patient’s throat, but the patient doesn’t open the mouth. The doctor has tried every appropriate ways to examine her, but she still refuses the examination. Thus, the doctor has to use his strength to force the patient in order to treat her.
3.2 Industry conditions (Porter 's Five Forces Analysis) Five forces which would impact an organization 's behavior in the market. Understanding the nature of these forces provides organizations the required insights to enable them to formulate the appropriate strategies to be successful in their market (Thurlby, 1998). 3.2.1 Threat of new entrants (high entry barriers) High capital investment for competitor entry into telecommunication industry.

Thus the reader is once again let down, and left wondering whether there is anyone in Africa who can fit the mold of the leader required. Midway throughout Stephen Kumalo’s journey, the reader is told about a young man named Arthur Jarvis, a staunch opponent of South Africa’s racial injustices who was shot and killed.

In spite of the fact that Disney is included in a wide range of commercial ventures, the industry it fits in with in this particular case is the film distribution industry. As a first stride to assessing Disney 's present situation in the business, we conducted the Porter 's 5 Forces Analysis demonstrated below. •Power of Buyers: The customers in the film distribution industry allude to theaters and retailers that help movies through showings, DVDs, Blu-ray, and so forth. Despite the fact that retailers and theatres settle on a definitive choice of which motion pictures they should to buy, because of the distributor’s size, brand acknowledgment, high client loyalty, bargaining power for retailers and theatres are limited.

The poem Christmas Carol by DJ Opperman was originally an Afrikaans poem. It was translated in to English by Anthony Delius. The fact that they went through all the trouble to translate it from Afrikaans to English, shows the significance of the poem for South African History.
