The main topic proposal for my research project will focus on Mary Karr’s The Liars’ Club events and how they are based on a true story as far as she can recall. Mary Karr’s The Liars’ Club deals with rape, alcoholism and a mother that is nervous in East Texas with list of seven husbands. The human mind’s memory is delicate and can change (Simply). A first-hand account such as a memoir gives me a chance to analyze the truth behind the stories. Eyewitness accounts are highly inaccurate and several witnesses in the same place and time can have many different accounts of the same scene (Eyewitnes).
Throughout Mary Rowlandson's captivity, her personality seems to change, both by gaining a sense of self-preservation and by becoming more calloused and cold to regular human emotion. This newfound sense of self-preservation is seen when Mary takes a horse's foot from an English child being held captive and feeling no shame for having taken it. One sees she has become cold and calloused when her mistress's baby dies, and Mary is almost happy about it because the baby's death means that Mary can sleep in the tent. At the beginning of the narrative, Mary cares about others and feels normal human emotions, but her personality makes a drastic change because she has to cope with being held

Pamela Meyer I could not think of a speech off of the top of my head so I chose one of the presentations in this module. I chose to listen to Pamela Meyer speak on "How to spot a liar". Pamela Meyer is the CEO of the social networking company Simpatico Networks as well as Calibrate, a leading deception detection-training program. She worked with researchers and studied all of the published research that she could find on deception "from such fields as law-enforcement, military, psychology and espionage" (Meyer, 2011). She then became an expert herself on this subject and received advanced training in several areas such as interrogation, microexpression analysis and behavior and body language (Meyer, 2011).
I went to the Monroe Civic Center and saw “The Art of Deception”. When my friends and I first got there the hall was slightly pack and it was actually difficult trying to find a seat. The fist I noticed on stage was that he had 5 laptops set up on a table and he also had one phone. After we found a seat the light dimmed and a video started to play.

Goldilocks and the Four Luthers It would be most odd for there to be a comparison between a professionally written book and a fictional fairytale. Incidentally, that is exactly what occurs between the stories of “Where The Lilies Bloom”, by Vera and Bill Cleaver, and “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”. In the book, “Where the Lilies Bloom”, a young girl named Mary Call Luther and her siblings, Romey, Ima Dean, and Devola Luther, struggle to support themselves through a harsh winter while striving to conceal the secret of their father’s death. However, the comparisons to be noted between these two articles do not include death, but speak on manners such as intrusion of space, the unpermitted taking of goods, and the ridding of unwanted visitors. Their may happen to be more similarities than is first realized.
