...The Reoccurring Theme Of Death Abhi Jain 4th hour Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, written by Jonathan Foer, portrays the struggles of a blossoming boy dealing with his father’s death, a victim of the cataclysmal attacks on September 11th, 2001. To readers this may seem like a novel about the September 11th attacks. However Foer does a meritorious job with the novel, depicting the emotion and confusion going on in nine-year-old Oskar Schell head. Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is a wonderful example of a novel that deals with the many facets of life after a tragic event. Death is a major reoccurring them in the novel, perceptible not only in Oskar’s loss of his father, but also in his grandparents’ loss of Anna. To anyone, loosing a loved one is a tragic event in someone’s life. Imagine what nine-year-old Oskar is going through when loosing his father, role model, and best friend for no reason. Oskar dynamic emotional changes began to affect the love ones around him. Oskar becomes more violent at home by throwing tantrums, yelling at his mother, and frequently giving he bruises.

...with rents in the Asheville area [continuing] to be above fair-market value [and] difficult to attain. “Ten years ago, a younger adult who didn't have other family support or resources could get a job, even if it was a fairly low-wage job, and still figure out how to make housing work. That's becoming more and more difficult to do,” (Forbes, 2013). There are many reasons one could fall victim to homelessness; job loss, addiction, and/or mental illness, among others. According to the Asheville-Buncombe Homeless Initiative (ABHI), the population of homelessness has seen a steady increase, with the 18- to 24-year-olds spiked 10 percent in the past year (Forbes, 2013). However, homelessness does not discriminate; single mothers who have escaped domestic violence; veterans, chronic substance abuse users and young adults who have aged out of the foster care system and have little guidance on how to sustain in life, are prone to finding themselves homeless (ABHI, 2012). According to an article in Mountain Xpress by David Forbes, in Asheville, about 500 people experience homelessness on any given night, and more than 3,000 people experience it throughout the course of a year; 38% of them are veterans and 11% are children (Forbes, 2008). The Housing Urban Department (HUD) defines homeless as any “individual in emergency shelter, including domestic violence shelters, in transitional housing for homeless persons who originally came from the streets, emergency shelters, or any places......

...A Beautiful Place     I think we all have a beautiful place in our mind. I have a wonderful place that made me happy a lot of times, many years ago. But sometimes I think that I am the only person who likes this place and I'm asking myself if this place will be as beautiful as I thought when I will go back to visit it again. Perhaps I made it beautiful in my mind.     This place is meaningful to me because it is part of the county I loved, is part of the county where I grew up and is part of my childhood. This place is in the country in an old region named Appalachia, a small piece of the Appalachian Mountains, in a town named Pikeville.     Pikeville is a polluted town because of the coal industry. People live in apartment or condominium buildings because of its little space available. I grew up in one of the many buildings in Pikeville admiring from my bedroom window the beauty of the mountains, always exploring with my eyes the forest or the meadows, looking for a clean and quiet place. And, I found one on a hill in the back of the town. It is about 100 feet square, it has seven old trees, wild flowers and a lot of bugs and ants during summer time.     I used to go there to sit down on a rock and watch the town and my trees. There was a very old tree, a maple tree, with a huge trunk. The others were smaller, three in the back, three on my left side and the old maple tree on my right. There were flowers, many kinds, white, yellow, purple and blue. It...

...companies as far as brand promotion is concerned. The primary objective of advertisements is not to sell the product/service but to make the potential customer base aware of its existence and its uniqueness. But with changing times it becomes necessary for the companies to modify their approaches they use in their advertisements to reach out to the masses. Thousands of campaigns go live every year but only few stay in our mind. Ever wondered what made those ads stay in our minds forever and how companies change their marketing campaigns over years and more over why they do so? Your task is to do a comparative analysis between the ads (any one of the following pairs) and make a presentation of max 5 slides (excluding the cover slide). 1. ‘Oh Yes Abhi’ Pepsi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tq7VBfNN0vY) V/s ‘Yeh dil maange more’ Pepsi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_kBbImdA98) Presents 2. ‘Mehendi’ Cadbury (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KIqDAijbS8) V/s ‘Mithaas jo banae dosti ko khaas’ Cadbury (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_K8JNDqwaQ) 3. ‘Stay by my side’ Vodafone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4s1uS1ZDPN4) V/s ‘Zoo Zoo’ Vodafone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GFr_GSjYPI) 4. ‘Go back to mountain’ Bisleri (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fN0eIk7pa4c) V/s ‘Kiss to drink’ Bisleri (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImcUsXaXkLs) 5. ‘Dhak Dhak’ Hero Honda (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pvLwVBb0Ao) V/s ‘Hum mein hain Hero’ Hero Honda......

...Modulo Arithmetic Problem: If we line up the students in this class in 2 rows, there is one student left. If we line up them in 3 rows, there are two left. If we line up them in 5 rows, there are 3 left. How many number of students in this class? Definition. Given a, b are integers and n is a positive integer, a[pic]b (mod n) , or a and b are congruent modulo n, if n|(a-b). Example. 3 [pic]0 (mod 3), 4[pic] 1 (mod 3), 5 [pic]2 (mod 3), 6[pic] 0 (mod 3), -1[pic] 2 (mod 3), -2[pic] 1 (mod 3), … Now, we can collect all integers that are congruent in the same set, called the congruent class, as defined in the following: Definition. The set of integers congruent to r (mod n) is called the congruence class of r (mod n), is the set [r]={ r + kn | k[pic] Z} The collection of [0], [1], .., [n-1] is denoted by Zn. Definition. The Integers modulo n, or Zn , is defined as Zn ={[0], [1], [2], …, [n-1]} Theorem. The following are equivalent: i) a[pic]b (mod n) ii) [a]=[b] iii) There are exactly n congruence classes (mod n), i.e., [0], [1], [2], …, [n-1] The modulo arithmetic + and * do not depend on the representation, as in the following: Theorem. If a, b, c, and d are integers, a[pic]b (mod n) and c[pic]d (mod n) i) a +c[pic]b +d (mod n) ii) ac[pic]bd (mod n) Definition. If [r] and [s] are congruence classes (mod n), then [r]+[s]=[r+s] [r][s]=[rs] Example. In Z4 ={[0], [1], [2], [3]} [1]+[1]=[2], [1]+[2]=[3],......

As mentioned earlier, the Government may obtain external loans from the World Bank, IMF etc. The individual on the other hand is not as fortunate as such.

...social networking sites should be permanently banned, i am with this topic? I'll suggest a couple of possible reasons for arguing that social networking websites should be banned: Social networking sites bring privacy into the public doman. There are things abouteach of us that are best kept private and for good reason. We would generally reveal ourselves in the ways that we choose to those that we choose, except when it comes to the online world. It has been said that you can almost build up an entire profile of someone by their online habits. People are often naive about the dangers of identity theft, they stick to the same username from one site to the next, they post little snippets of information in various places without realising that each is like a piece of a jigsaw. If you find one common thread, such as a username, then it is relatively simple to find several pieces of one jigsaw, put them together, and you start to establish a comprehensive profile of that person. You might find out what they do for a living, the area in which they live, the names of their loved ones, their pets, their email address, their likes and dislikes, the list is endless. More and more people are becoming the victims of identity theft, if not for financial gain then for malicious purposes. Celebrities have had people pretend to be them on websites such as Twitter and Facebook, causing them a great deal of embarrassment. Everyday folk have been slandered, cyber bullied and impersonated...
