A Dinner to Remember

My dinner party will be hosted in Calitri, Italy. I chose Calitri, Italy because it was named after one of my ancestors. My dinner party will be on top of an old castle while watching the sunset. At the table, along with myself, I will have Elizabeth I, Socrates, Christopher Columbus, Galileo, and Leonardo Da Vinci. We will be seated at a round table so that everyone can be facing each other, and it will be during the summertime. The food we will eat will be all Italian. For the meal, we will have a traditional four course meal, just like my grandmother makes. First, we will start off with the antipasto, also known as an appetizer. We will have sparkling wine and an assortment of different cheeses, breads, and meats. Next we will have the first course, or the primo. This will consist of pasta with homemade sauce. Third, we will have our second course, or the secondo. We will eat chicken and have vegetables that are freshly picked from a garden. And lastly, we will have dolce, or dessert. We will be served homemade cannolis and mascarpone. When everyone is done with their meals, we will sit around the table and drink coffee. The first person I would choose for my dinner party would be Elizabeth I. Elizabeth I was born in Greenwich, an estate near London. She lived during the Golden Age. She accomplished many things in her lifetime such as, Made the first Church of England a protestant power, had the first theatre built while she was under rule, and ruled England as a woman for forty years. Making the first church Protestant meant that normally reject the Catholic and Orthodox. Elizabeth I also said that she would never marry and she kept her word and never got married. At the table, I would have her next to me. I chose this because I think it would be an interesting…...

She told me her name was Amanda and her son’s name is Will. Will had leukemia. He had dark brown hair that was half way gone and giant sparkly blue eyes. I told Amanda that my mom was coming home soon so they could get a ride with them. Amanda called a tow truck while i played with Will. Will was strong. Stronger than anyone i ever knew. My mom finally got home and drove them to the hospital. About 4 months later i found out that Will got surgery and is at the hospital. Amanda called saying i could see Will. I left at about 3 in the morning to see him. When i got there i saw those sparkly blue eyes watching me. He told me about the kids who played with him and how all the nurses would compliment him on his hair. I was surprised at how happy he was.

...Lauren Hillstrom MW 2:30 12/17/12 Option A Final Paper: Remember “Remember” by Christina Rossetti is a sonnet written in iambic pentameter. Her poem follows the structure of an Italian sonnet, one divided into an octave and sestet. The author’s thought process is portrayed through the rhythmic divide of her poem. The octave rhyming ABBAABBA directly pleads a loved one to remember her when she is gone. Then the following sestet rhyming CDDECE creates a shift in atmosphere, where she realizes the mortality of memory and would rather her love one be happy than mourn in the misery of her death. The fourteen lines altogether portray themes of love, fear, and death. With dark and sad undertones, the words “you” and “I” are used frequently showing that the poem is a dialogue speaking directly to a loved one. Throughout the poem she uses anaphora, such as repeating ‘remember’ at the beginning of several sentences. In the first line “Remember me when I am gone away”, she is speaking to someone in a direct form asking to be remembered when she is no longer here. Thus, the idea of separation is introduced here. At this point, we cannot tell if she is embarking on a journey, leaving a relationship behind or what calls for this separation between her and the person she is speaking to. Following, in the second line, “Gone away into the silent land”, the word ‘gone’ is used as a euphemism for death by using silent land as a metaphor for heaven. This imagery of heaven reveals the......

Dinner for the Boss

...snoring and since her room was next to where dinner would be served, the guests would know about her presence. He was very anxious to please his boss. He turned round and looked at his mother’s room. Her room opened onto the veranda. As his gaze swept over the veranda, a thought flashed through his mind. He went to his mother’s room. Since morning his mother had been nervous at the goings -on in the house. She seemed to be very anxious because she knew that the big boss from her son’s office was coming to their house and she wished everything should go well. When Shamnath told his mother to finish her meal early that evening, she reminded her son that she would have to skip dinner because meat was cooked in the house. Mr. Shamnath had fixed everything. But he still felt anxious. He arranged his mother like a puppet or a rag doll in a chair in the Veranda. He told her not to snore, not to sit with her feet lifted up. As time passed, mother’s heart started pounding heavily. If the boss came to her and asked her some question, what would she say? She was scared of English Sahibs. She felt like going away to her widow-friend, but she lacked the courage to defy her son’s orders. She kept sitting there, dangling her legs from the chair. Mr. Shamnath’s dinner had reached a crescendo of success. Everything was going superbly. The Sahib liked the Indian dishes and the Memsahib the curtains, the sofa covers, the decor. After dinner, they came out of the drawing room. When......

...Gloria Bicolli Remember the Titans HRD 363 Midterm Tuckman and Jensen 1977 Tuckman and Jensen model focuses on the development of internal relations among the team members. There are 5 stages, Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing and Adjourning. The movie Remember the Titans was very inspiring especially because it is based on a true story. This movie showed all of Tuckman’s 5 stages. Stages of Group Development The first stage is forming; this is when members get to know one another. This is one of the most important stages. In the movie, this occurs when all of the football players are in the gym ready to meet Coach Boone. All the different race groups were together. In this interaction, the athletes have come together for the first time, they are unsure of their roles on the team, and they are also unsure what to expect from each other and the coach. Coach Boone asks Petey whether or not he likes football. The coach is very directive he tells the team “This is no democracy”. (YouTube) After they went to Gettysburg College for Camp, the coach made them sit in the same positions they had on the way to camp. This was one of his ways to form the team. The team walks to camp together, this is the first time we see them grouped whites and blacks together as a team, which signifies they have finished the forming stage. The second stage is storming; this is where all the conflicts and disagreements happen although the majority of the movie conflict occurs......

This change affected the whole community, school as well as the students in the football team. We as organizational development consultants job was to oversee the change that happened in this community and to manage this change to help the people that are going through this change.

Organisational development can also be defined as a theory and practice of planned, systematic change in the attitudes, beliefs, and values of the employees through creation and reinforcement of long-term training programs.

Remember the Titans

...Remember the Titans Jessica Valentine SOC 318 Sociology of Sport Dr. Marnie Carroll May 18, 2015 Remember the Titans Our general public has truly and still right up 'til today managed a large number of issues that significantly separates societies, organizations, associations and all the more essentially individuals. Sports can in a flash be put in this classification when matters identified with isolation, race and ethnicity are interrelated. I have chosen the film "Remember the Titans" to examine the effects of the previously stated as they relate to sports all through this paper. In 2000, Remember the Titans was an American sports film focused upon fanciful African American football mentor Herman Boone who was depicted by super star Denzel Washington. This motion picture was not just one of the top rated and enthralling films of its year, however offered groups of onlookers a complete representation of mutual activities and leads in the lives of individuals like themselves. Using our text to break down and thoroughly describe the movie in regards to realistic conflict theory, cultural theory and racism all of which plays into the factor of sociology of sport. Prejudice is the amazing conviction that races have unmistakable attributes and inherited variables, and, likewise, certain races are better than others. The realistic conflict theory suggests that contentions between two distinct gatherings will emit as the gatherings contend over the same constrained assets...

Remember the Ttians

...Remember the Titans Organization: T.C. Williams High School Football Team (Alexandria Virginia 1971) * Organizational Environment: Consisted of the school board, the coaches, the team and the community. * Org. Structure: Due to desegregation, the structural norm of an all-white high school, coaching staff and football team, soon changed when a new head coach was appointed. * Org. Culture: In the beginning, everyone was out for their own self interests. The school board was trying to sabotage Coach Boone. Both coaches were out to make a name for themselves (Boone: Up and Coming/Yoast: Hall of Fame). The team members had their own initiatives (to get their desired positions). While white members of the community were waiting for failure, the black members longed for a figurehead. The coaches, team, and the community struggled to understand and except one another.The mentality was “This is how we do things around here”, but that was all about to change. * Org. Climate: At first everyone lacked motivation to put forth the effort of trying to work together. For example: Boone took offense & Yoast took defense. The team captains weren’t showing any leadership and the community members were extremely divided. Racism and football was the backdrop for the clash of leadership styles and personal perspectives that each man had to learn and understand from each other because they all shared one common goal, to become a winning team. * Team Building: At camp when...

Writing to Remember

...April Horrocks EN2010 November 10th, 2014 Angels September 5th, 2011. I still remember it like it was yesterday. The weather was calm; it wasn’t hot, and it wasn’t cold. The wind wasn’t even blowing. Yet, somehow, it was still very yucky out. I didn’t realize this at the time, but it was the perfect weather for death. My phone rang at 5:14 AM, and it was a number I did not recognize so suddenly out of my sleep. I decided to ignore the call. Then seconds later, my phone rang again. This time I picked up, not knowing the moment I answered my life would be forever changed. At first I could not recognize the person on the other end of the line, because of all the pain and crying in her voice, but shortly I realized the person on the other end was the mother of my best friend. Burton Thomas Brown, also known as BT, was found dead on his parent’s couch. He overdosed on what we now know to be Xanax and painkillers. His heart just stopped. The instant I heard those words come out of his mother’s mouth, I think my heart stopped as well. I felt it shatter into five million tiny pieces, build itself back up, and shatter again five million more times. “Why would God, my God, allow for such a horrific thing to happen to such a beautiful person?” is the question that kept running through my confused mind. “Why BT?” I thought to myself, “Why now?” In the days that followed, I experienced a pain I had never knew existed. In comparison to child birth, it was much, much worse. This...
