I sometimes imagine the picture of my funeral, our whole town came to my funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for me, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of my house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at least ten years. It was a big, squarish frame house that had once been white, decorated with cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies in the heavily lightsome style of the seventies, set on what had once been our most select street. But garages and cotton gins had encroached and obliterated even the august names of that neighborhood; only my house was left, lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps-an eyesore among eyesores. I’ve always been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town, dating from that day in 1894 when Colonel Sartoris, the mayor--he who fathered the edict that no Negro woman should appear on the streets without an apron-remitted my taxes, the dispensation dating from the death of my father on into perpetuity. Not that I would have accepted charity. Colonel Sartoris invented an involved tale to the effect that my father had loaned money to the town, which the town, as a matter of business, preferred this way of repaying. When the next generation, with its more modern ideas, became mayors and aldermen, this arrangement created some little dissatisfaction. On the first of the year they mailed me a tax notice. February came, and there was no reply. They wrote me a formal letter, asking me to call at the sheriff's office at my convenience. A week later the mayor wrote me himself, offering to call or to send his car for me, but I gave him in reply a note on paper of an archaic shape, in a thin, flowing calligraphy in faded ink, to the effect that I no longer went out…...

...flowers makes the air pleasant to breathe. The scent of flowers is extracted and preserved as perfume. People apply it on their clothes to make them sweet smelling. Water of certain flowers is sprinkled in gatherings. Flowers are used in making sweet smelling hair oil. They are strung into garlands and with certain people it is a fashion to wear sweet smelling garlands in the evening. Flowers are offered to gods and goddesses. Some rich people spread them near about their bed at night. A lover offers flowers to his beloved as a token of his sweet and pure love for her. Women love to hang them in their coiffeurs to look more attractive. Some gentlemen hung them in the button-holes of their coats. The late Pt.

A bridegroom garlands his bride and she also does so in return at the time of their first meeting just before the actual marriage ceremony. We shower petals of flowers upon our revered leaders when they happen to visit our city. When a great man dies, his dead body is laden with wreaths of flowers. People shower flowers upon his bier as it is carried through the bazars and streets as a mark of their love and respect for him.

Outline II. Introduction A. Opening Statement B. Author Information III. Body A. Section One B. Section Two C. Section Three D. Section Four E. Section Five IV. Conclusion V. Works Cited OPENING STATEMENT William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” is the story of an eccentric spinster, Emily Grierson. Emily lived a luxurious life in a poor southern state, obeying her overbearing father until her ultimate death. “A Rose for Emily” begins with the death of Miss Emily Grierson and proceeds to tell the story of her life in the years leading up to her death and the horrible secret she has kept hidden. The story is told from the point of view of a nameless narrator and a longtime citizen of Jefferson, Mississippi. He notes that while the men attend the funeral out of obligation, the women go primarily because no one has been in, nor seen the inside of Emily’s house for years. It should also be noted that Jefferson is a critical setting in much of Faulkner’s fiction. The story is told in five sections, and opens in section one with an unnamed narrator describing the funeral of Miss Emily Grierson. The narrator not only speaks for himself but also represents the community at large. The story continues on through section five where the narrator describes......

... Ecuadorian Roses William Hardy International Business Professor Alexia Priest Post University July 6, 2013 INTRODUCTION On special occasions or just because, we send rose to our loved ones, have you ever wonder where those roses came from? Did they come from the United States or from another country? What is the process for growing these beautiful flowers that so many people love? This research will answer many of those questions. What is the basis of Ecuador’s comparative advantage in the production of roses? Ecuador has a comparative advantage when it comes to the production of roses. Ecuador not only has plenty of workers to help cut the rose stems at the farm, but also the landscape and climate in Ecuador is beneficial to the growth. The bushes are protected by 20-foot-high canopies of plastic sheeting. The combination of intense sunlight, fertile volcanic soil, an equatorial location, and high altitude makes for ideal growing conditions, allowing roses to flower almost year-round. This farmland produces prime roses. They have he heads and unusually vibrant colors, including ten different reds, from bleeding heart crimson to rosy lover’s blush. This helps Ecuador’s because since they have such a great production of roses they are able to sell them for premium prices in stores from New York to London. Most Ecuadorean roses are sold in the United States or Europe. Who in these countries benefits from the importation of Ecuadorean roses, and how do they benefit? Who...

...A Rose by Any Other Name Case Study Case One The Dilemma: Rose Partyware has been working towards creating its own brand of party ware supplies to give it a competitive edge in an industry of generic party supply manufacturers. Recently, Rose Partyware was presented with the opportunity to produce a private-label brand of party goods. This alternative would provide Rose with a stable revenue source as well as opportunities to create private-labels for other retailers. However, pursuing this option would drain Rose’s resources and prevent them from launching their own branded goods. Additionally private-labels would make Rose into a manufacturer-only role and limit its long-term prospects, but having its own brand is very costly to promote and comes with many short-term risks. Possible Solutions: 1. Proceed with Rose Partyware branded party supplies.   * Retain loyalty of small independent retailers (35% of sales)   * Brand advantage in party supplies versus other generic suppliers   * Positive long-term returns   * Control over pricing, branding, and distribution of goods   * Short-term technological advantage 2. Pursue manufacturing private-label goods for retailers.   * Retain largest Rose customer (20% of sales)   * Supplier of choice in private-label manufacturing   * Lowest short-term risk   * Cheapest option in terms of change to company structure & spending The Decision: If I were in Tom Roses’ position I would choose to proceed with Rose......

...Section: HBR CASE STUDY Rose Partyware's largest retail customer has decided to create a private-label line of party goods-and wants Rose to manufacture it. Should Rose put its efforts behind its own brand instead? TOM ROSE hated to go to a meeting with ice cream on his pants. But Rose Partyware's after-school party-a monthly gesture of goodwill to the local community and, not incidentally, a field trial for products the company was developing- had confirmed his suspicions that one of the new ice-cream bowls was just too shallow. The five-year-old who had demonstrated that fact had been sitting right next to him. So here he was getting ready to listen to a major presentation, with paper towels in his hands. "Go ahead, Cassie," Tom said to his marketing director. "It'll dry or harden--or something. Thankfully, it's my last meeting of the day!" He could tell that Cassie Martin was excited about the presentation she was going to make to the top management team. Tom had personally recruited her about a year ago to spearhead the biggest strategic initiative in Rose's history: the launch of a branded line of party ware. In fact, it was the first time a company in the party goods industry had contemplated a branding effort, at least in the 30 years Rose had been in business. Party Lines Rose manufactured a wide variety of paper goods- plates, bowls, cups, napkins, tablecloths, favors, crepe-paper streamers, and so forth- for birthday and holiday parties and other social...

A Rose for Emily

...A Rose for Emily A symbol is a person, character or a object in a story used to represent an idea. In the short story, A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner, the symbols reinforce the themes of tradition vs. progress, decay and the passage of time, and love that is not returned. Emily Grierson, her father, Colonel Grierson and Colonel Sartoris, now deceased, represent the Old South. They contrast with the new middle class that is represented by the new Board of Alderman, coming to collect disputed taxes. Homer Barron also symbolizes change and the middle class of society. The themes of change and decay are seen through Emily's stubborn ways and her deteriorating mental and physical character as well as through her possessions and through her relationships. Emily is one of the last "traces" left of the Old South. In fact, Emily is deceased at the beginning of the story and the story is a flashback of her tragic life. Emily's house represents Emily's changing lifestyle, while indirectly representing the Old South. Both Emily and the house were once bright, beautiful and dignified, symbols of the Old Order. Her father was overly protective of Emily, keeping her in the house, while the world outside was changing rapidly. "It was a big, squarish frame house that had once been white, decorated with cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies in the heavily lightsome style of the seventies, set on what had once been a select street.

...The first step in strategy implementation process is to define the actual strategy. The major strategy that the Rose Company is trying to pursue is to switch from a highly centralized type of manufacturing organization to a decentralized system, in which the general manager will coordinate activities at the actual production sight. The company decided to build a new plant, where it can implement new processes and methods. However, the major concern in this case is not strategy evaluation but its implementation. When implementing a defined strategy there are numerous considerations that must be taken into account by general manager. First of all, implementing strategy requires that the general manager become involved in assuring that both the broad and detailed functional policies reflect the strategy that is being pursued. In other words, which functional policies needed to be implemented to achieve the restructuring strategy in our case? Given the assignment to make a decentralized operation to function properly, James Pierce will be dealing with a set of changed relationships. Instead of reporting to their functional counterparts in the home office, the heads of the departments will be under the authority of the general plant manager. James Pierce will be responsible for the management and administration of all functions and personnel, except sales, at Jackson plant. Although, the new policies are in accordance with the current strategy, there is a potential threat of......

A Rose for Emily

...elements of “A Rose for Emily” Gothic can be defined as “literature dealing with the strange, mysterious, and supernatural designed to invoke suspense and terror in the reader.” (Pickering, 2004, p. 1425) Gothic literature generally presents the same themes and motifs: love lost, hidden secrets, love and death hand in hand, beauty, youth, grotesque characters, macabre eroticism, etc. Gothic literature also explores taboo subjects such as murder, suicide and incest. “A Rose for Emily”, by William Faulkner, is representative of the Southern Gothic stories since the themes of love lost, death, and murder are present in it. There are many elements that hint at the Gothic nature of the story: Emily’s description, her house, the poison she bought, and finally the ending. Emily, the protagonist, used to be the perfect young and rich lady living with her father, but now she is an old woman living alone in her crumbling house. However, the inhabitants of the city she where she lives respect her. Throughout the story, the author describes her as being weird and lonely. “She looked bloated, like a body long submerged in motionless water, and of that pallid hue. Her eyes, lost in the fatty ridges of her face, looked like two small pieces of coal pressed into a lump of dough.” She is described as a living death. This description creates suspense for the readers. Then, later on in the story, Emily denies her father’s death and refuses to let people come in her house to......

Rose for Emily

... September 8, 2011 Gothic Elements in “A Rose for Emily” Novelist, William Faulkner, in his short story “A Rose for Emily” Illustrates several Southern Gothic Elements. This particular story has a moody and forbidding atmosphere. Throughout the short story Faulkner depicts images of a cold dark neighbor and a dilapidated mansion. Through these elements this creates a dark and ominous feeling throughout the story. The story begins describing the funeral of Miss Emily. Miss Emily and her family had once been the center of the town and now Miss Emily’s reputation had died right along with the rest of the old men and women of the town. The narrator explains that the men attended her funeral out of obligation while the women came because no one had seen the inside of her house in years. Miss. Emily lived a very shelter life. Miss Emily was always alone and eventually the neighborhood starts to make rude comments about her. They begin to connote her as” crazy” but she was really not use to living on her own and was still morning the lost of her father. The story goes on to illustrate Emily’s house as “an eyesore among eyesores”. This house had once been white “the best looking house in the neighborhood” but is still decorated with the style of the seventies. She lived in a neighborhood that once was the best neighborhood in town, now deserted. The only house that was left was the one of Miss Emily. This particular house was ragged from many years of misuse and......

...stipules; the leaflets usually have a serrated margin, and often a few small prickles on the underside of the stem. Most roses are deciduous but a few (particularly from South east Asia) are evergreen or nearly so. The hybrid garden rose "Amber Flush" The flowers of most species have five petals, with the exception of Rosa sericea, which usually has only four. Each petal is divided into two distinct lobes and is usually white or pink, though in a few species yellow or red. Beneath the petals are five sepals (or in the case of some Rosa sericea, four). These may be long enough to be visible when viewed from above and appear as green points alternating with the rounded petals. There are multiple superior ovaries that develop into achenes.[4] Roses are insect-pollinated in nature. The aggregate fruit of the rose is a berry-like structure called a rose hip. Many of the domestic cultivars do not produce hips, as the flowers are so tightly petalled that they do not provide access for pollination. The hips of most species are red, but a few (e.g. Rosa pimpinellifolia) have dark purple to black hips. Each hip comprises an outer fleshy layer, the hypanthium, which contains 5–160 "seeds" (technically dry single-seeded fruits called achenes) embedded in a matrix of fine, but stiff, hairs. Rose hips of some species, especially the dog rose (Rosa canina) and rugosa rose (Rosa rugosa), are very rich in vitamin C, among the richest sources of any plant. The hips are eaten by......
