Essay490 Words / ~1 page Universität Leipzig Multi - ethnic Britain Great Britain is a country with a big history. In the 19 century it had so much colonies, that it covered over one quarter of the whole world! Now they all get independent, but English is still a language that is spoken in a lot of colonies. So there are a lot of people who can speak English in a good way. They know that in Great Britain is high standard of living. So a lot of people from the colonies want to move to the mother country. There are a lot of other reasons to move to Great Britain. Some families want to start a new live. They think they can get a new and good work and become rich. This is mostly not the case. An other reason is to live in a city with a low crime rate, because for example in India there are a lot of ghettos which are very dangerous.

Essay1.135 Words / ~ pages Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz - KFU Why is English so important? “The limits of my language mean the limits of my world” Ludwig Wittgenstein The question students of foreign languages should ask is whether English is the language with the most promising future and how the English language we know is going to change in the face of the fast-paced globalisation­. No one questions the fact that English plays an important role as a world-wide trading language and that English has obtained a considerable status regarding the communication between people who do not share the same mother tongue. There are numerous countries which carry out their international business transactions almost exclusively in English (even if it is not their own mother tongue). So, what made English to what it is today? The question is whether English possesses certain features that make the…[show more]
Essay785 Words / ~ pages Gymnasium Köln Analysis of Obama’s speech This text is an extract from Obama’s speech, which he delivered at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington on the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s speech, on 28 August 2013 and deals with the equal treatment of every American. Obama’s ambition is the people to get a feeling of togetherness and so this speech is addressed to the whole America. Throughout the text you can found a neutral writing style. There are no difficult technical terms and also the syntax does not reveal any complexity so everyone can follow the words and Obama condescend to his nation. With short and simple but very expressive phrases he appeals to the listeners feelings and wants to create a emotional basic to get “liberty and justice for all” (l. 80). So the tone of the speech is not just emotional but also optimistic and positive.…[show more]
Essay675 Words / ~ pages Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz - KFU A future for American Studies (Chapter I) In the first chapter it is generally argued that the American Studies have to transform in order to address how America signifies in the new global issues such as politic, environment and so forth. Further it is very important for the New American Studies to become more comparative which can be achieved by rethinking and improving the current methods of American Studies. One of the main things that has to be achieved is to get the current, influential scholars to learn from non-U.S-schol­ars in order to broaden their horizon and maybe get some insights that wouldn’t be possible otherwise. Further it is suggested that people and also scholars should overcome their prejudices and fears in order to create a New American Study where all nations and minorities, no matter how small they are, are…[show more]
Essay710 Words / ~ pages NMS Wien My dear class! A little while ago I realised, that I actually don’t know much about you! About who you are or what your life looks like. That sort of made me sad. So I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me to make a start, and perhaps you want to tell me a bit more about yourselves after that as well. I am 36 years old and I was born in Vienna. My mum and dad were Viennese too. Mostly I grew up with my mother, as my parents got divorced when I was only three months old. I have four siblings. My two elder siblings are called Nora, who is 39, and Roman, who is 43 years old. The three of us have the same father. My two younger brothers, René (24 years) and Enric (20 years), are my half-brothers­, so they are the sons of my mum’s second husband, my stepfather.

Essay1.557 Words / ~3 pages Gymnasium Hannover , Year 13 English Internal 3.2 Much Ado about Nothing, Shakespeare Much Ado about Nothing was written by Shakespeare around 1598, which makes it one of his later comedies. Unlike his early comedies the humour in Much Ado about Nothing does not depend upon funny situations, it derives from comic characters in the play and through their confused manner and speech. However, comedy in Shakespearean times and its Elizabethan usage had a very different meaning from modern comedy we are use to today. Whatever happens along the way in a dramatic or even tragic comedy it will offer an image of happiness in the end, often through marriage between unmarried characters (Hero & Claudio; Benedict & Beatrice). Shakespeare uses comic characters, like the Watch, Dogberry and Verges in Much Ado about Nothing, to balance near-tragic events they…[show more]
Essay517 Words / ~ pages IGS Landau „The right of privacy is more important than the public’s right to be informed“ Is this statement really correct? There are Arguments for and against this statemant. In this essay I explain arguments in favour for and against the work of paparazi. The first argument is to lead that the Celebrity have chosen this life in the public. The public is part of her career. Moreover they present themselves to their fans what makes they even famous. The career of an actress, for example, is not only in front of the camera but also on the red carpet or in interviews. They are role model and Celebrity. My second argument is that the Stars get public and fame without the privacy. By headlines and rumors, which are mostly self-invented by the stars bring they to the public and arouse the curiosity of the people. For example, a mounted image showing a new…[show more]

In the beginning of the movie is written “[.] Truman Burbank [.] created by Christof”. So there is the first indication of such a relationship. The second one is the names of them: Christof which comes from Christophorus who is one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. Christophorus is responsible for example for rescuing from any danger and storm and he helps every sailor. These three duties are the most important for us. The first one Christof tries to fulfil Truman´s whole life and that is also the reason why he has adopted Truman. The two last duties he does not fulfil completely because in two situations of Truman ´s life Truman gets in real danger on the sea because of Christof. Christof gave Truman his name;…[show more]
Essay915 Words / ~2 pages Maria-Wächtler-Gymnasium Essen The Influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the past and present The term ‘Ku Klux Klan’ is probably derived from the Greek word kuklos which means circle, so the Ku Klux Klan was meant to be a circle of brothers with the same objective. The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) was founded on 24th of December 1865 in Pulaski, Tennessee, USA by Calvin E. Jones, John B. Kennedy, Frank O. McCord, John C. Lester, Richard R. Reed and James R Crowe as an organization without a political target. The Klan grew especially from people of the southern states which do not accepted the laws adopted by the northern states about the equality of the rights of black and white people. In 1867 the founder lost their leadership and control about the Klan, so they organized a meeting in Nashville, Tennessee to elect a leader of this brotherhood.

The mayor is Michael Müller, the chancellor Angela Merkel and the federal president Joachim Gauck. Albrecht Den Bären founded Berlin in 1237. His surname is the reason the coat of arms has a bear on it. It’s white with a red streak below and above. In the centre you can see a black bear standing and screaming. Now I will tell you something about the history: During the Second World War, Berlin as the capital was a very important place for Hitler and his supporter.

Essay1.797 Words / ~6 pages Universität Duisburg-Essen - UDE “Till Death Do Us Part - Or The Impacts Of The Sun” The Discussion Of Marriage In Byron’s Don Juan Love and marriage have always been central topics in literary works. Thus, it is not surprising that they are also dominant themes in Byron’s works, especially in his most prominent work, the epic poem Don Juan, in which the reader encounters a rather negative and cynical view on the institution of marriage. Applying a biographical reading, I will illustrate that Byron expresses his own ideas of love and marriage through the voice of his narrator(s). This will become clear by taking closer look at Canto I and III. In the beginning of Canto I, the narrator introduces a negative example of a married couple, namely that of Don Juan’s parents, Don Jóse and his wife Donna Inez, who were unhappily married. Describing their marriage, the narrator…[show more]

Haaeim was written on the 22 April, 1839 at the Middle Point in Illinois. It is addressed to Bishop Jacob Neumann. The author describes his journey with other Norwegians from Norway to America and tells the addressee the disappointmen­t about the country. At the beginning of the Letter he promises to be honest about everything he will say. Most of them left Norway in 1836 to travel to America without any information except some letters of Gjert Gregoriussen Hovland, who was very impressed by the country. Therefore the author and other Norwegians were excited to travel to America. But all what they had expected, turned out quite different. Instead of big houses they found small huts, the homes of half-naked people. So Haaeim and the others also had to build some of those huts for…[show more]
Essay896 Words / ~2 pages Gymnasium Bruck Opinion essay about home schooling I would like to begin with the question ´´what is homeschooling ?´´ First of all I will mention some facts about home schooling. Home school is a school where a child is educating at home by parents and / or teacher and usually done inside the home rather than at public or private schools.

Essay2.455 Words / ~6 pages High School in America, Chewelah American Literaturepoe­try Period: 3Date: 3-5-13 Essay: Deciding The poem “Deciding”, written by Wendy Wilder Larsen and Tran Thi Nga takes place in the city “Hadong”. The city is in the north-east of Vietnam. The tone in the poem is sad and oppressive. It changes for three stanzas, beginning at line 21 when the protagonist starts talking about his or her past, the tone is getting happier and lighter, but it changes back for the last stanza, which makes the overall impression really sad. The poem “Deciding” does not have a constant rhythm that goes through the whole poem, the stanzas have different lengths. Every stanza ends with either a period or a question mark after each stanza which shows that the poet ended his or her thought. The lines in the poem don’t rhyme as in many other poems; they are “independent” from each other. The first…[show more]

Essay2.517 Words / ~8 pages Ruhr-Universität Bochum - RUB Ruhr-Universi­tät Bochum Englisches Seminar Essay on John Keats’s “To Autumn” “To Autumn” was written in 1819 by the Romantic poet John Keats who is known as the “poet of ‘aesthetic experience’” (Byron 6) due to the form and structure as well as the imagery and figurative language of his poems. He is considered to be the “forerunner of the art for art’s sake movement” (ibid.), i.e. art including poetry has no moral or political meaning as it just needs to be aesthetically pleasing. The poem itself is regarded as one of the “most ‘perfect’ and ‘flawless’” (ibid. 54) poems in Romantic poetry and is part of Keats’s ode sequence (Strachan 173).1 Keats’s odes are composed of three ten-line stanzas and are written in iambic pentameter. Each Stanza combines a Shakespearean quatrain, arranged in a cross rhyme (abab), with a Petrarchan sestet,…[show more]

After the victory of the northern states the fiat became obligatory and about four million blacks were manumitted from their brutal lifelong imprisonment and finally were US citizens. Thus, they were conceded all the rights like their fellow beings. However the Southern States depended on inexpensive workers and tried to tighten the special laws, the so-called «Black Codes» to reintroduce the slavery unofficially. Nevertheless the Republicans were successfully able to prevent the enforcement of the «Black Codes» in the Southern States and passed the «slave-friend­ly» civil rights laws of 1866.

Anna definitely loved her sister Kate who had leukemia in her blood cells but Anna was born in a test tube and made to match her sisters cells, so her parents could use her umbilical cord blood to help her sister.

He did this to show the english how mean they are regarding the english rule that no scottish man is allowed to be a newscaster. Therefore the aim of the poet is to show the bigotry of the English people. In the next paragraphs I will be following the “Exploding a Poem” guidelines. The Author talks to the english, trying to make them clear about their bigotry and inconsequent actions, this is proved by words like, “wia voice like wanna yo scruff” (1).

So, google is the worlds largest web search engine. When you start writing something into google it starts suggesting you the most searched terms. But Google has many functions like a calculator or a spell check. In my opinion the question is really hard to answer. I think that there is always more then just one point of view. To start with the fact that google is suggesting you things while typing in, shows me how lazy and spoilt we are that we do not even need write a word or a sentence till the end. From my personal viewpoint I feel like people lose their will of learning something and the excitement of finding out anything that they did not know before. I mean if…[show more]

We are poor just like most families from India. My name is Jamil. Life was never easy for me. From the age of seven, I was forced to collect old bottles, wires or other junk from the surrounding junkyards to support my family with some extra pennies. When I became nine years old I started work at a shoe factory. I was therefore always used to a life with just enough money to prevent my family and I from starving. Still, I must say that I did indeed have a very pleasant childhood. My parents were happily married, my brothers and I were always cared for. This included taking us to the doctors when necessary. Certainly, not because we had the money but due to the fact that my father was friends with the local doctor, Patel, since…[show more]
Essay860 Words / ~2 pages Gymnasium London Essay about the nature in “La belle dame sans merci” by John Keat and “The Tyger” by William Blake. My Essay is about the nature in “La belle dame sans merci” by John Keat and “The tyger” by William Blake. “La belle dame sans merci” is written in the form of a traditional folk ballad. Keats uses the so-called ballad stanza, a quatrain in alternating iambic tetrameter and trimeter lines. The shortening of the fourth line in each stanza of Keats poem makes the stanza seem a self-containe­d unit, that gives the ballad a deliberate and slow movement “The Tyger” by William Blake is a lyric poem.” The Tyger” has six quatrains and “la belle dame sans merci” has twelve quatrains. So with the repetition of “Tyger Tyger, burning bright, in the forests of the night: What immortal hand or eye, dare thy fearful symmetry?” William Blake wants to show the…[show more]

In my opinion, none of the forecasts in this book have already occurred nor are they close to coming true. We may live in a world which is cruel and ruled by money and the internet, but humanity still hasnt left this society, despite atrocious wars and dreadful terror attacks. No matter how hard I try, I simply can’t image a world, where one will never want to be a mother or father freely. The idea of breeding babies and psychological­ly manipulate them, so they already have an identity assigned and absolutely no choice of „finding themselves“ seems downright ridiculous to me. No loving parent, nor, more or less happy, child would want to imagine…[show more]

This quotation applys to both offenders who are imprisoned and sentenced to death because of their crimes and people who want to keep capital punishment and protect it. Also the UN-Charta of human rigths guarantees everyone the right to life. Therefore capital punishment should be prohibted in every state and country. One argument often used by institutions and people supporting death penalty is deterrence. Firstly, it is immoral and gruesome to use the equal way to deter offenders from committing murder. This is a method introduced before the birth of Christ by Babylonian king Hammurabi. Secondly, the argument is wrong, as official crimerates show. The rate of murder is constant or even increasing in states applying capital punishment, such as Texas, Alabama or Florida. Intrestingly…[show more]

The definition of procrastinati­on is “tendency to put off or completely avoid an activity under one’s control” (Tuckman,1991­, p. 474). It seems strange that people choose to delay things that they have ability to do. At first, I simply own procrastinati­on to laziness. After learning psychology, I know the process that I analyze the cause of procrastinati­on is illogical. This is because the study of psychology should be scientific and empirical. I just simply connect laziness with procrastinati­on for some presentation of them are similar. Judging from presentation make me overlook many important underlay differences. In addition, diverse factors may lead to similar presentation. The result I get…[show more]

Commercial surrogacy refers to a contractual relationship where a surrogate provides gestational services and money will be paid to the surrogate or her agency as compensation (Drabiak, Wegner, Fredland, & Helft, 2007). With the increasing concern about eliminating exploitation and promoting gender equality, legalization of commercial surrogacy causes considerable arguments worldwide. The reasons why Indian commercial surrogacy market receives many attentions are its large scope and surrogates’ poor financial conditions. Indian commercial surrogacy market is estimated to create up to 2 billion dollars profits every year (Vincent & Aftandilian, 2013). Moreover, most Indian surrogates are in poor financial circumstances and it may lead scholars to consider…[show more]
