- dealing with nerves
First of all, Iâ€™ll talk about stage fright and nervousness. One of the major concerns of students in any speech class is stage fright. If you are worried about it, you â€˜ll feel better if you know that you â€˜re not alone. Actually, most people tend to be anxious before doing something important in public. Actors are nervous before a play, politicians are nervous before a campaign speech, athletes are nervous before a big game. Even I, actually said, now I feel very very trembled. It â€˜s a n...

The Great Gatsby
The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines the word ‘better’ as “greater than half; more attractive, favorable, or commendable”; but what really determines someone ‘better’ than the rest of society? Is it their wealth, their clothes, their personality, or their friends? Fitzgerald portrays Jay Gatsby as someone reaching the America Dream. “‘If he’d lived he’d of been a great man. A man like James J. Hill. He’d of helped build up the country [, said Henry Gatz]’” (176). Jay Gatsby’...

- Crime Popular
It’s widely known that crime literature is among the most popular forms of literature in existence. There a number of reasons to support the popularity of crime literature. It is the same reason that crime is popular in other forms of media, such as film and television shows. The primary reason for the popularity of crime is because readers get caught up in the suspense of crime. This can branch out to the exhilaration of the “chase” in catching a suspect, the belief that justice can and must pr...

Good vs. Evil in “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?”
JJ Dewey says in his writings that the basic difference between good and evil is this: Good is that which takes us forward on the path of spiritual evolution toward greater freedom, livingness, intelligence, light and love. Evil is that which takes us back into the past to lesser freedom, lesser livingness, lesser intelligence, light and love. Joyce Carol Oate’s short story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” is a religious...
- Fahrenheit 451
faithful adaptation of the original, Hamilton's comics version conveys the social commentary of the novel, while using the images to develop the tone. He uses grainy, static colors and images obscured by heavy black shadows and textures to portray the oppressive nature of this world where firemen start fires instead of putting them out. Malevolent forces and danger lurk in the shadows pervading the suburban home of fireman Montag and his wife, Mildred. Montag questions the happiness of his mund...

The waitress and the manager who both tended to the table had great personalities, showed knowledge of the menu, and adapted well to every individual table, which was noticeable. Also the food came out a...
