“Stop!” the boy shouted at the stranger to whom he had lent his phone but he was already lost in the crowd. He stood at the pedestrian crossing unable to cross to trial the stranger who took his phone. As he stood there he felt fear consuming his body and water filled his eyes. He was so angry with himself for being for being so kind. As the stop light went on red he decided to continue looking for him. When he crossed the road everyone who was dressed in a red shirt looked as if they were the stranger who took the phone. He had reached so far but wasn’t able to find the stranger. He stood there thinking of what he was going to tell his mother about what happen with his phone. He then walked to the hair store to buy the products that his mother sent him to buy. “Good evening Mrs. Pet, I’ll like a shampoo and a conditioner for my mother please,” He ordered as he stepped into the shop. As Mrs. Pet looked at him she knew something was wrong but he told her nothing. She then gave him the shampoo and conditioner and told him he’ll be alright. He then walked out and headed off to his mother’s hair salon. By that time his mother started to call his phone the stranger then answered it and told his mother about what happened. “Miss I can see that this is your son’s phone, but I borrowed it for a call and got lost in the crowd at the pedestrian crossing,” The stranger said.
The boy’s mother then told him that he could bring the phone to her hair salon. When the boy reached the salon he didn’t know how to tell his mother about the phone. As he was about to open his mouth he saw the stranger who took the phone. The stranger then apologized to him about the misunderstanding and then handed him his phone. As the phone reached his hand he wondered how the stranger knew where he was, he smiled and then thanked the…...

... People who work in the public relations industry are generally known as flacks, public relations specialists, communications specialists, or media specialists. Their primary function is to serve as advocates for their employers—businesses, hospitals, universities, nonprofit associations, and other organizations that wish to build and maintain positive relationships with the public.

...Story of a father and a little boy who had a bad temper There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily, gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said “you have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.” You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there. Moral for the story: Make sure you control your temper the next time you are tempted to say something you will regret later....

...workers and consumers) have to stand together. For example, Chavez quotes “what we do know absolutely is that human lives are worth more than grapes and that innocent looking grapes on the table may disguise poisonous residues hidden deep inside where washing cannot reach.” (par. 6) Consumers are now not the only ones getting poisoned, but consumers are paying money to eat poison. Chavez connecting the audience through pathos allows both consumers and immigrants to be one; both are dying from this poison. Chavez shares personal stories that he witnesses because of the pesticides. He shared the story of Amalia Larios who will not walk because while her mother was pregnant she was exposed to pesticides while working in the fields harvesting the grapes. He continued with Adrian Espinoza a 7 year old, who is dying of cancer along will 8 other children because their only source of water was polluted with pesticides. He continues with several stories of the lives lost or ruined so farmers can used the pesticides. Our government full aware of the use of the poisonous chemicals and does nothing about it.

The film portrays the story of a boy named Salvatore “ToTo” di Vita, and the way he grows up with the story of the cinema from a town called Giancaldo in the province of Sicily. The boy bonds with a man named Alfredo who worked at the local theater, Alfredo teaches everything he knows to Salvatore until one day Alfredo has an accident and goes blind. Salvatore later fall’s in love with Elena and soon has to leave his town in order to follow his career. He returns to Giancaldo 30 years later in order to learn the lesson of letting go. The score is very beautiful and very touching throughout the film and it depicts the emotions going on very accurately. It was played during the shooting of the film, which I think makes all the difference for the actors in really feeling every scene. There was a lot of inspiration and artistry during the making of this film. From the beginning of the movie, we get to know and fall for little Salvatore and that reminds us of how we were when we were little kids. From then on we start to feel related to him and how he grows up. There are lots of emotions all throughout the film because he goes through every stage of life with the cinema at his side and how the cinema also changes. It shows you how at first even kisses were......

...the famous Welwitschia mirabilis, a plant that can live for up to five hundred years. Although its tenacity and longevity are remarkable, the fact that it has the appearance of a heap of garden refuse means that instead of an earth-shattering visual experience you may want to concentrate on its remarkable age when taking pictures! The “Sheltering” Desert: At the start of the Second World War, German Henno Martin and his colleague and friend Hermann Korn, feared internment in a camp for Nazi’s. Consequently, they escaped into the Namib Desert. For two and a half years they eked out a living in this harsh environment. In later years, Martin published his account of this experience, titling his book, The Sheltering Desert and later their story was also made into a film. As you drive along, or when setting up camp, imagine trying to survive here without the luxuries offered to you on this trip. You may see the Namib in a different light! * The Diamond Desert: The discovery of diamonds in 1908 around Kolmanskuppe initiated an uncontrolled rush of prospectors into the region. The German Government was forced to establish the so-called “Spergebiet” between 26° latitude south and Namibia’s southern border, stretching 100-kilometres inland. As a result, independent prospectors were forced to turn northwards beyond this area. This resulted in the discovery of diamonds at Spencer Bay and between Meob and the Conception Bay area (Spergebiet 2) during December 1908. This area became......

...an evil presence inside of the story, to get the reader to assume that within all the happiness and good times, a demonic evil presence is still there waiting for its moment to make its grand appearance. There are three different types of American gothic literature: old American gothic literature, New American gothic literature, and southern American gothic literature. The story, “The Raven” by Edgar Allen Poe, it talks about a man who is apparently talking to a raven as it wakes him up in the middle of the night. This is a prime example of American Gothic Literature because the story starts off as a man waking up from his sleep and hearing a knocking on his door, but as the story progresses, the demonic side of gothic literature begins to unravel itself. The raven in this story speaks to the man with one word,” nevermore”, but that one word was all it took for the man to go mad and talk back to the bird. In the story, “The Tell-Tale Heart” the man could not stand the old mad and his eye, so he kills the old man and rejoices when the deed is done. Later on in the story when policemen come to the house to check and see if everyone is alright, he is so confident that they won’t find the body or find out that he killed the old man in the first place, as the story continues he starts going insane with the guilt that is brewing inside of him to the point where he yells and tells the policemen where the old man’s body is. In both of these stories both men go insane because......

...1. The Gift of the Magi "The Gift of the Magi" is a short story written by O. Henry (a pen name for William Sydney Porter), about a young married couple and how they deal with the challenge of buying secret Christmas gifts for each other with very little money. As a sentimental story with a moral lesson about gift-giving, it has been a popular one for adaptation, especially for presentation during the Christmas season. The plot and its "twist ending" are well-known, and the ending is generally considered an example of situational irony. It was allegedly written at Pete's Tavern[2][3] on Irving Place in New York City. Plot Mr. James Dillingham Young ("Jim") and his wife, Della, are a couple living in a modest flat. They each have one possession in which they take pride: Della's beautiful long, flowing hair and Jim's gold watch, which had belonged to his father and grandfather. On Christmas Eve, with only $1.87 in hand, and desperate to find a gift for Jim, Della sells her hair for $20, and eventually finds a platinum fob chain for Jim's watch for $21. Happy to have found the perfect gift at last, she runs home and begins to prepare dinner. When Jim comes home, he looks at Della with an expression “that she could not read, and it terrified her.” Della then admits to Jim that she sold her hair to buy him his present. Jim gives Della her present — an array of expensive combs for her hair (referred to as “The Combs”). Della then shows Jim the chain she bought for him,......

...Risk Management 1990 – Organisation culture - Mine Health and Safety Act - HIRA / FRM 2000 – Self assessment - Risk Based Safety ARTICLE An electric gondola used on the exterior of a high-rise construction in the Makati business district of the capital Manila collapsed on January 27. It fell 21 stories and landed on protruding metal rods. Ten construction workers died; one survived but is now in the hospital with numerous fractures and injuries. The tragic death of these workers was completely avoidable. The accident reveals the appalling working conditions of the construction industry in the Philippines. The accident occurred at Eton Property Group’s luxury condominium construction, Eton Residences. Eton Residences is a 39-story complex scheduled for completion this year. The workers had been installing glass windows on the 32nd floor. News reports vary, but the suspended electric lift had a maximum carrying capacity of five or six people. There were 11 men crowded into the gondola. At shortly after 11 am, the ropes on which the gondola were suspended gave way and it collapsed, falling 21 stories and landing on a safety net that was perforated at numerous points by twisted metal bars. REASONS WHY IT HAPPENED The investigation into the causes of the accident revealed a scandalous disregard for the safety of the workers on the part of Eton Property Group and its subcontractors. There were no safety harnesses or lifelines......
