The author first arouses our sympathy for Mr. Andrew, Miss Annie’s late husband. Mr. Andrew was Miss Annie’s first husband. He loved Miss Annie and treated her very well. Miss Annie was very beautiful. This led caused Mr. Andrew to be very jealous, so jealous that he made Miss Annie promise not to remarry if he died before her. Unfortunately, Mr. Andrew was the first to die. Miss Annie, however, did not keep her promise.

...MS-13 final MS-13 History and Origins The Mara Salvatrucha gang originated in Los Angeles, in the 1980s by Salvadoran immigrants in the neighborhood between Pico and Wilshire also know as the city's Pico-Union neighborhood. They immigrated to the United States Due to a 12-year civil war in El Salvador, which resulted in over 100,000 deaths and over a million refugees(www.ms13gang.com). The Salvadorian refugees and immigrants predominantly settled in southern California and Washington, D.C. Some of the refugees and immigrants had ties with La Mara, a violent street gang from El Salvador. Others had been members the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMNL) during the El Salvadorian civil war(Rimmer, 2009). FMNL was made up of Salvadorian peasants who were trained as guerilla fighters. Many were adept at using guerilla tactics and working with explosives, firearms, and booby traps. Salvadorians were not accepted into the Los Angeles Hispanic community, and were frequently targeted by local Hispanic and African American gangs notably the 18th street gang. Due to this suffering, in the late 1980s, some refugee members of La Mara and FMNL formed what is now known as the Mara Salvatrucha (MS) street gang. Like many other street gangs, MS initially formed for protection, but quickly developed a reputation for being organized and extremely violent criminal enterprise. The gang’s rivals took note. One, known as the Mexican Mafia, or “la eme” for short, and is one of...

Annie Proulx Essay

...Academic essay on Annie Proulx's "Job Story" Choices are something we all make. Not necessarily important choices, but there will always be a time to make them. It's not always good choices, but they have to be made. There will always be consequences, whether it's bad or good. Throughout the story, Leeland Lee has to make a lot of choices. Where to live, where to work and when to work. All the different choices he made, put him in the position he is now. Leeland Lee is an awkward-looking young boy. His face is heavily boned, which he has gotten from his mom, his neck is quite thick and he has red-gold hair. His eyes are as pouchy as a middle-aged alcoholic. His nose is broad and lays close to his face. Lori Bovee is Leeland Lee's wife. She has an undistinguished oval face, and hair of medium length. Leeland Lee is the protagonist of the story, because he is the main character. I would say Leeland is a flat and static character as he is an endless optimist. He doesn't give up when it comes to finding a new job, and despite his wife dying he still gets a job at Unique Eats. The reason he is a static character is because he doesn't change at all. After getting several different jobs he doesn't change anything, after his mom and wife dies he doesn't change one single thing except the fact he isn't listening to the radio anymore, but since that have been an important factor of the story all along, it can also show a lot about how he has changed. The story starts......

I could be in any sort of jam some as thick as tar, still he would never be that far. We used to fight all the time when we were young, then, well then I pierced my tongue. That’s when he went away, he’s never even come back for like a day. It’s okay now I don’t mind, because my brother I can always find. I love him more then a lot things, and it’s not only because we’re siblings. Where ever he is I still see his face, he’s my one and only brother, I love you Ace.

Annie Mac

...Friday, the weekend officially starts on Radio 1 with Annie Mac. No pre party would be complete without an Annie Mac set blaring through the speakers and whatever problems you faced during the week, now seem irrelevant after that first drink. Now imagine seeing Annie and special guests work their magic in a sellout party of 2700 people in the o2 academy Leeds. I was lucky enough to attend this musical soiree on Friday and had the chance to see some of this year’s hottest talent with my own eyes. True to form, my friends and I managed to push our way to the front – yes, we are those annoying people who barge past you at gigs – just in time for the party to begin. First to grace the stage were Disclosure, who got the crowd going with chart toppers “Control” and “Latch”; Annie Mac even tweeted at this point saying “Arrived in Leeds O2 to hear 2,700 people sing ‘Latch’ at the top of their voices. Go Disclosure!..” so as you can imagine, it was an intense start to the night! Arguably one of the most anticipated songs of the night was Feel The Love – Rudimental. The combination of the strobe lights, the saxophonist and the amazing voice of John Newman was enough to send shivers down your spine and led to 2700 people screaming the lyrics at the top of their lungs – I’m still singing it in my head 3 days later! Shortly after Rudimental had made my hairs stand on end, the moment we’d been waiting for had finally arrived – Annie Mac. She stood behind the somewhat makeshift DJ......

...Identifying Resources available for Children with Multiple Sclerosis and their Families Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disorder of the central nervous system. Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body, through its immune system, launches a defensive attack against its own tissues and can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating as contact between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted. MS affects the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other effectively. The initial symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis are often blurred or double vision, poor contrast, eye pain, red-green color distortion, or even blindness in one eye. Most people with MS experience muscle weakness in their extremities and difficulty with coordination and balance. These symptoms may be severe enough to impair walking or standing. The worst cases of MS can produce partial or complete paralysis. Most people with MS also show par aesthesis, transitory abnormal sensory feelings such as numbness, prickling, or “pins and needles” sensations. Some people may also experience tremors, pain, dizziness, hearing loss and speech impediments. Many people with MS experience cognitive impairments such as difficulties with concentration, attention, memory, and poor judgment but such symptoms are usually mild and are frequently overlooked. Depression and anxiety is another common feature of multiple sclerosis. ......

Ms and Diet

...Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the Central Nervous System. There are multiple ways to treat the symptoms of MS but none more important than diet. Paying close attention to one’s diet plays a major role in improving living with MS. When I was diagnosed with MS making changes to my diet made noticeable improvements in daily functions.               Multiple Sclerosis(MS) is a disease that attacks the Central Nervous System(brain and spinal cord). The cause of MS is unknown but it is believed that environmental factors along with being genetically predisposed may trigger the disease. MS impedes signals to and from the brain which affects many bodily functions. MS is known as a immune- mediated disease, meaning that it is part of a group of diseases that don't have a “trigger” but go through inflammatory passages and lead to inflammation. More specifically MS causes the immune system to attack the myelin sheath around the nerves and the nerves themselves. The bodies T- cells, white blood cell that plays a central role in searching out and destroying objects marked as harmful to the body, carry out the destruction of the myelin sheath. Myelin is a protective fatty coating around the nerves in the Central Nervous System. Once the myelin sheath or nerve is damaged the disrupted signals lead to symptoms. There are various symptoms for MS which include any of the following: Fatigue, numbness/ tingling, weakness, vertigo, sexual dysfunction, pain,......

Ms and Pregnancy

...MS and pregnancy The diagnosis of MS should not prevent you from becoming a parent but for this purpose it is very important to consult your doctor and your family. MS affects people who have or are planning to start a family, but more often women than men. This raises many questions about causal relationship between MS and pregnancy. Although, many years ago, women with multiple sclerosis are advised to avoid pregnancy that their condition would not worsened, but today we access different insights. Studies conducted over the past few decades have shown that the symptoms of multiple sclerosis can be alleviated or even disappear during pregnancy. The analysis of works that report about 13 144 women with MS revealed the following data: * MS has no effect on pregnancy. * No increase in negative symptoms nor for mother nor for the child. * Woman with MS can expect a normal pregnancy and normal delivery. For all these reasons, women with MS, especially those with mild neurological deficits, should be encouraged to become pregnant as soon as possible due to the progressive flow of the disease. It is important to break down some of the prejudices that exist and women provide the necessary information: 1. Does MS affect on the fertility of women? 2. Does MS affect on pregnancy and the baby's health? 3. Is it possible to apply spinal or epidural anesthesia during childbirth? 4. Is it recommended breastfeeding and is it safe? 5. Does......

Ms Project

...MS Project Familiarization Ida Casey Dr. Kimberly Malone-Haddox BUS 375: Project Management October 18th, 2015 At first, I thought the MS Project is very difficult from a user standpoint. I felt that using the MS Project is very time consuming. As I was trying to navigate them the system, I found that I was focusing more on the actual system them inputting information. Considering that I do have a lot of experience with man of the MS office programs, I thought this program would be similar to that. I feel that if I had more tutorials where I am taught then have a quiz or even a step-by-step guide then I would feel more comfortable using it. Overall, it is a great program, but it still think that I would be able to use MS Excel to perform these tasks in MS Excel instead of MS Project. I do feel that with a little more that MS Projects is very easy and simple to use. You just have to get used to the program and take your time. I’m actually very excited about using the program now because this would help me gain some experience on implementing practice and assessments so I would be more confidence using it. But after doing a little research, I did find its purpose and why it was created for the business professional world. Two challenges that I foresee using MS Project in this course would be doing the projects accurate and actually navigating through it. When it comes to navigating through the program, it is difficult due to the extra steps when in the other MS office......

In Annie Hall Allen talks to the audience as if they are sitting in on a therapy session. In this film Woody Allen plays Alvy Singer, Alvy is a psychotherapy patient who is trying to figure out his romantic relationships in life and have a better understanding of human behaviors, and the way humans think (Lee 35).

In this film the audience witnesses the romantic relationship that evolves between Annie and Alvy. The audience also watches the falling out of this relationship. Woody Allen exposes a whole different side of himself in this film. The question that Allen leaves the audience with is, why name the film Annie Hall, “ What brought about Allen’s decision to shift our attention from his own character and make Annie the film’s central figure (Lee 36)?”This is an example of how Allen leaves us questioning and gives us only a little insight to a deeper meaning in his films and morals of life. This film is the first time we witness Woody Allen as person who is going through relatable real life situations, and as a audience we have a chance to observe how Allen goes about dealing with obstacles that he my encounter in his life time. This film introduces “many of the most important......

...The general economic decline for most Mississippi blacks since the 1960s has been accompanied by the resurrection of white racist terrorism and political violence. The tortured body of one unidentified black man was found floating down the river in Cleveland, MS. The man’s sex organs had been hacked off and the coroner later reported finding his penis in his stomach. On January 11, 1981, the body of 45-year-old Lloyd Douglas Gray was found hanging from a tree in Tallahatchie County, MS. The coroner pronounced Gray’s death as a suicide, and no autopsy was performed. A month later, the body of 32 year old Roy Washington was found in Cypress Creek, in Holmes County, MS. Washington was badly beaten in the head and face. His hands were bounded behind him and then he was shot in the head at point-blank range. The corpse was weighed down with a car jack and wrapped by barbed wire. Scars around his neck indicated that he had also been lynched. Local white newspapers were quiet about the murder. Holmes County police did not aggressively pursue leads in the case and even followed a black reporter around while he conducted his own investigation. The majority of the other black men who were found beaten or hanging in MS have also been officially labeled suicides. Familiar with the pattern of racial violence, one black resident of Tallahatchie County declares, “If they say it was suicide, it was probably a lynching.”[2] The Case of Eddie Carthan Eddie Carthan......

500 Days of Annie Hall

...500 Days of Annie Hall Romantic Comedy contains the favorable elements of both romance and comedy genres. Some notables are funny jokes and humorous plots, which surround a love story or the search of a true love. Woody Allen’s Annie Hall (1977) and Marc Webb’s 500 Days of Summer (2009) are both movies that fall under the genre “Romantic Comedy”. These two movies are connected in many ways, for each film contains relatable characters and effective narrative techniques to portray a realistic relationship. Each film is also able to portray the differences between the reality and expectations of a relationship in humorous ways that allow them to be called a romantic comedy. Alvy and Tom are two different characters with separate mindsets. In 500 Days of Summer, Tom Hansen, despite his passion to be an architect is an unmotivated greeting card writer who deeply believes in the concept of true love and soul mates. Whereas in Annie Hall, Alvy Singer is a pessimistic comedian and control freak that is seen changing things to benefit him. Both characters due to their attitudes on life and relationships bring forth different aspects that make them such unique and likable characters. Tom strongly believes that he will never be happy until he meets the person that he believes is ‘the one’ for him. Whereas with Alvy he pushes Annie and doesn’t fully accept either Annie’s insecurities or support her as she finds ways to work through them. Summer and Annie, like their male......
