...blues" in the black community. We have been taught, at least in the past, and, to a certain extent even now, to shrug off this mental state. For many of us, it is not just a fact of life; it is a way of life. When bluesmen used to sing, "Every day I have the blues" or "It ain't nothing but the blues" or similar words from hundreds of songs, they do more than mouth lyrics. They voice a cultural attitude. They state an accepted truth at the heart of their music: Having the blues goes along with being black in America. In addition, from the time we are young boys, black males have ingrained into us an idea of manhood that requires a silence about feelings, a withholding of emotion, and ability to bear burdens alone, and a refusal to appear "weak." The internal pressure to adhere to this concept of masculinity only increases as we sometimes experience various forms of racism in a society that historically has sought to deny us our manhood.  The internal wall that often keeps black men away from psychotherapy goes along with external barriers built just as high, if not higher. Mental health practitioners are overwhelmingly white, with the proportion of black psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychoanalysts estimated at less than three percent of the nation's total. This would mean that even if black men were to break through the self-imposed barriers and seek professional help for mental issues, it may be difficult to find someone with whom they can build a rapport, and whom......

The Naked and the Nude

...The Naked and the Nude Essay Tolulope Olatunbosun The naked and the nude. Separate yet linked terms. Why then are these terms ‘separate’ when they are so often linked? In his poem, “The Naked and the Nude,” Robert Graves illustrates extreme distinction between these terms and their use while he develops his composition. Incorporating poetic devices, diction, and insight, Graves effectively manipulates the definitions and shows the reader how extremely different these terms are, despite their common substitutions. The diction Graves utilizes throughout the poem emphasizes the marked differences between the distinctive terms ‘naked’ and ‘nude’. “As synonyms should express, the same deficiency of dress or shelter, stand as wide apart as love from lies, or truth from art,” (lines 3 -6). Immediately, Graves demonstrates his interpretation of naked and nude by juxtaposing these terms being as different as “love from lies, or truth from art.” Nakedness is intimacy, nakedness is privacy, as love may be. In contrast, nudeness is secretive, nudeness suggests dishonorable behavior as lying always ensures. Love is uncompromising, pure and honest, while lies are the byproduct of poor virtues. Truth is firm, objective, and unyielding whereas art is opinionated, subjective, and dependent on user interpretation. Graves opposes the terms naked and nude as polar opposites, as he does concepts of love to lies, and truth from art. The speaker demonstrates an abrupt......

...with each client, we are able to develop creative solutions to transform the brand. We would like to thank Naked Juice for inviting our advertising agency to design an advertising campaign. We are confident that our advertising ideas will put some mojo into the way consumers see your juice products. 2 INTRODUCTION Executive Summary Naked Juice presents an affordable and unique way for consumers to maintain healthy eating habits in an on-the-go environment. The brand has relied on its healthy share of the market along the West Coast since its inception in 1983 and has recently become the sales leader. However, Naked Juice does not enjoy the same market share nationally.

...highly regret the time I delivered a speech on the holiday of Halloween and passed around candy for my audience, because people were more interested in finding red Starburst than what I had to say. Recently, for my Leisure and Lifestyle Development class I brought a Frisbee as my visual aid when telling people of what I liked to do for leisure. My teacher promptly asked me to show off my skill in Frisbee and I almost broke someone’s nose. That was a poor visual aid to choose. In my recent speech about junk food, I could have included more comical and humorous subject matter to keep my peers focused and make them life while learning about a rather boring or depressing topic. I could have said many, many speeches throughout my high school career better, if I had just rehearsed them more to an actual audience, because I know that I have written some pretty intriguing speeches that haven’t have been as successful as I hoped due to lack of preparedness. I could have brought a, if not multiple visual aids for my speech on junk food to help my audience better understand what sorts of foods were healthy and unhealthy to eat when trying to prevent disease....

...and supplies to aid armies encouraged by Hitler fighting in Eastern Europe and the Ukraine as late as the early 1950s as part of the "roll-back strategy" made official in NSC-68 (April 1950).9 Soviet support for armies encouraged by Hitler fighting in the Rockies in 1952 might have elicited a different reaction.10 Examples are legion. One of the most notorious is the example regularly offered as the ultimate proof that Communists cannot be relied upon to live up to agreements: the 1973 Paris Peace treaty concerning Vietnam and its aftermath. The truth is that the U.S. announced at once that it would reject every term of the scrap of paper it had been compelled to sign, and proceeded to do so, while the media, in a display of servility that goes beyond the norm, accepted the U.S. version of the treaty (violating every essential element of-it) as the actual text, so that U.S. violations were "in accord" with the treaty while the Communist reaction to these violations proved their innate treachery. This example is now regularly offered as justification for the U.S. rejection of a negotiated political settlement in Central America, demonstrating the usefulness of a well-run propaganda system.11 As noted, "international terrorism" (in the specific Western sense) was placed in the central focus of attention by the Reagan Administration as it came into office in 1981.12 The reasons were not difficult to discern, though they were - and remain - inexpressible within the doctrinal......

Chef as a Career in India

...the not-so-appreciated skill of cooking? Well, if in case you did master your culinary skills like the famous chef and the culinary author Tarla Dalal, the dream may not seem far-fetched. Cooking in India is an art every home maker excels in, right from the age where she/he begins with the process of making the magical chai for the guests till the age where it becomes a roz ka kaam to cook the 3-meals-per day for the family. This scenario has prevailed in the Indian kitchens for ages. But from the past few years, cooking is beginning to be considered as a serious job! Let us find out why. The *Masaale Daar* Beginning Unlike any other field, it is not hard to find if you actually have an interest in cooking or not. The moment the neighborhood Aunty asks for an extra bowl of Dal (which you cooked last night and made an effort to offer it to her), it is but obvious, ki beta kuchh to baat hai..! Try and explore as much as you can and keep inventing things for yourself. If people around you genuinely appreciate the food you make, if you find pleasure in what you are dishing out, you definitely have a case. So don’t wait – try and turn this interest into a profession! If all else fails, try auditioning for Master Chef and hear it from the Maestros themselves! ;) S.C.O.P.E One begins as a subordinate in the beginning and gradually rises to become a Chef. The Chef is the master of the kitchen who has absolute control over the junior staff and oversees the entire......

Naked Economics

...perverse incentives because there was another idea of conservation officials capturing the rhinos so they can saw off their horn and then releasing them into the wild. The idea being that they are less likely to be killed by poachers. This evidence proved to not be so true because poachers would still kill them anyways whether it would be to save them from tracking the same animals again or also because there are still possibilities of making money from the stump of the horn. The authors explanation of the black rhino conservation story shows how exactly incentives work and how they affect our society. Perverse incentives are incentives that have an undesirable and unintended effect, producing negative consequences. An example from a high school student’s life is a teenager doesn’t like someone he/her best friend’s hanging out with so they go ahead and talk badly about the person or make up something about the person so their friend won’t want to hang out with them anymore. It could work out that way or it could blow up in the friend’s face and then lose their best friend. 3.) In this chapter, the author explains without government, a free economy would be impossible. Without protections on property, adjudication of contracts, police and military security, etc., the free market would disintegrate into a band of Barbary pirates, local warlords, a scatter of fiefdoms, tribal conflagrations and a hoot of witch doctors.

The Naked Citadel

...The Naked Citadel reveals a life, hidden behind the walls of a Men's world. This essay is a revelation of the relations between men as men, as humans and as fighters. These are the three major aspects of the life behind the walls of the Citadel, the manly world. Susan Faludi paints a beautiful picture of this world and the interrelations within its boundaries by putting a woman in the center of her story. Another major aspect of the essay is the tradition as a social value and as a limit. The essay gives an excellent example of how, sometimes, especially in the past centuries, traditions shaped people's life and narrowed the scope of people's dreams. It also shows how difficult it is to change traditions. The Citadel is a public military college established in 1822. It is a high-ranking institution with well-established traditions. All of the cadets are men, because army is, or used to be only men's universe, and not just men's universe, but the strongest and most brave men's universe. The academy is an institution in which men looking to serve their country and be given a top rate education seek interest. It is a place where young man are taught how to act and communicate like man, how to be prepared to the real world and face difficulties-"To bravely face difficulties, not to complain, and not to give up  are some of the rules in Citadel's code. In the Citadel a boy is remolded "into the whole man  with his identity "stripped . A place where young men go to grow......

On my birthday, Oct. 8, 2010, I woke up that morning and decided that I was going back to school.
