Being a teenager is really tough. It's the where you have to deal and cope with the most changes, in your whole life. This transition from childhood to adulthood is smooth for some, but rough for others. The most important thing about being a teenager is responsibility. When you're a teenager, you get blamed for anything wrong you do, get grounded, punished, unlike before when you were a child, and you could get away with murder, and nobody could do anything about it! You can say goodbye to those days now!It's all not so bad about being a teenager though. Now you don't have to have your parents take you to somewhere you want to go, and somewhere you couldn't go before. You can go with friends and have fun, which you couldn't because all of you were too little to know what fun is! You can now go to amusement parks, parties etc. with friends, or even alone. It's a very enjoyable time of life, if you do the right stuff, and put thought into what you are doing. But with all good things, must come the bad. During this age, you are old and hopefully smart enough to understand what is good for you, and make decisions without consulting others. But with that comes risk, and nowadays, fun stuff are usually bad stuff.With the society turning for the bad as days pass, the teens are getting into all sorts of trouble with drugs and alcohol. Thirty years ago, drugs were something that older people never talked about and nor did they ever see. Alcohol was small thing that the good people such as churchgoers never touched, but they preached about it. Every town has a town drunk. In today's society teens see alcohol and drugs at least once a day or more. Thirty years ago drugs were a little harder to find, teenagers did not have access at the time. So, today they face more peer pressure to where now it is illegal and thirty years ago it was legal and not a problem. Also, teenagers…...

Chickens of the Sea

...CHICKENS OF THE SEA Not long ago, a friend once told me that he heard Jessica Simpson say on television, that a brand of canned tuna called “Chicken of the Sea” literally means, chickens that live in the sea. As we all know chickens cannot naturally live in the sea due to their physical deficiencies in water. In other words, the only way chickens could live under the sea is if the company invested billions into undersea chicken farms. For example, They could build giant undersea domes just like Sandy Peaches, in the hit kids television show “Spongebob Squarepants”. Furthermore the labeling itself states quite clearly that the food product contained in the tin is in fact tuna. Now, if the label didn’t say anything about tuna on the front It would be very easy to confuse the product with chicken, but that is not the case for this specific brand. In addition, tuna in general is very different from chicken in so many aspects, that it is really hard to confuse tuna with chicken. The textures, colors, and taste are so different that anyone who has ever eaten both tuna and chicken, could easily differentiate between the two products. Jessica Simpson’s statement is a falsehood that can be proven wrong with simple observation. First, chickens cannot live in the sea due to the fact that they have evolved on land for millions of years. Everything about their bodies have been finely tuned for living life on the surface of the world. Resulting in different organs compared to marine...

The Dead Sea

...Dead Sea Vacation! One of my favorite things! I’m pretty sure that most of you, if not all of you, love vacation too! Yet, every one has different ideas of what they like vacation to be. • Some people like to go away to a place with a cold climate and a lot of snow. They like to ski, snowboard, and relax in a cabin sitting by the fireplace. • Others prefer going to a place with a warm climate where they can just lazy around, sit outdoors, swim, and bask in the sun. Personally, I like the warm climate much more. One such place that I’ve been to and is a vacation spot for people all around the world is the Dead Sea. Although we know that there’s a history behind the Dead Sea, that is not what makes it such a hot vacation spot. What draws people from all over are, the benefits the Dead Sea has to offer. Today I’m going to share with you a couple of these benefits. The Dead Sea is often referred to as the Living Dead Sea. (The Living Dead Sea you might ask?) Isn’t that an oxymoron? It’s called the Living Dead Sea due to the ways it can treat and sometimes even cure certain diseases. It can definitely help improve the quality of ones life. Around the world many health spas have benefits relating to climate, water, and air. The Dead Sea is the only place that combines them all.

Sea Scrolls

...Sam Guinto Mrs. Hellmuth 9/7/11 Per. 5 The Scrolls of the Dead Seas The Dead Sea Scrolls, what exactly are they? Well, in this essay I shall be explaining and educating you on this subject exactly. You probably have more questions other than this, well, let us begin this journey of learning about the Dead Sea Scrolls. So what are the Dead Sea Scrolls. Well first off lets start with the legend. Legend says one day Sheppard were walking by a stream, threw a walk, they heard a shattering, found a cave full of treasure, and in that treasure was a set of decayed scrolls. These scrolls are called the Dead Sea Scrolls. These Scrolls were a copy of the biblical book of Isaiah. These Scrolls were most likely placed there by the same people at the time of the Great Revolt against Rome in CE 68-70, when Jerusalem was besieged and finally destroyed by the Romans. One other manuscript find also prepared the way for the Dead Sea Scrolls. A small scrap, now known as the Nash Papyrus, was discovered in the 1920's in Israel. On it was a copy of the Ten Commandments as found in the book of Deuteronomy. There were scripts found in the library of Qumran and they had 200 manuscripts on them. The theory is that the library was made and or found by a Jewish sect known as the Essences , and the scrolls were put there to keep the knowledge hidden. Now, there is much more information about the Dead Sea Scrolls but this is just a overall summary of it. I hope I have helped you and......

From Sea to Shining Sea

...Drugs in AMerica | From Sea to Shining Sea | Patricia Diaz | 000348122 | GLT 1 111.6.2 | 2/5/2014 | | “Drugs in America from sea to shining sea” Drug use in the United States has been on a steady rise. This is largely due to the increasing popularity of Marijuana. Marijuana was on the decline from the 1990s to mid to late 2000s but has been on a steady increase since then. This is due to the changing perception and attitudes towards marijuana. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2013, 7.0 percent of 8th graders, and 22.7 percent of 12th graders used marijuana in the last month. Why this sharp increase? This is related to state’s passing of legislation for the legalization of marijuana. This cannot help in the war on drugs. The use of marijuana has been shown to be the gateway to other more illicit drugs. Medical Marijuana has been in use for many years in the United States. It has been touted as the new miracle drug. While there are benefits to this drug the long term effects are still being analyzed. It has been said to help prevent blindness from Glaucoma; an appetite stimulant in Aids patients; and helps controls muscle spasms in Multiple Sclerosis patients. It can also have negative side effects such as paranoia, feeling of panic, hallucinations, and anxiety. People also have complained to short term memory loss, mood swings, perceptions and information processing. Why are there two different spectrum of the......

Sea Story

...Love indubitably unites as much as it divides. This story is very much an example of the inconsistency between the personifications of the sea and the land, and the heartache this causes. The short-story is called “Sea Story” and is written by A.S. Byatt in 2012. Its’ main event is partially set in Filey, which is east of the Yorkshire coast and partially in Oxford. Although this is where the main events unfold, we follow a bottle from England and through the world’s vast oceans. The short story’s maincharacter is Harold, a sensitive poet with the ocean in his blood. The story follows him, trying to win his love back, as she studies eels in the Caribbean. Harold was born close to the sea and raised by parents whose love for the waves and the marine life were eternal. His father was an oceanograph, as was his grandfather, and Harold’s mother was an English teacher who wrote “fierce little poems about the waves and weather”. (p. 1, ll. 8-9) It was through his mother that Harold decided to become a student in English literature and this is the distinct difference between him and Laura. Harold chose life on land. Although he carries the sea at heart, he chooses to stay on land and become a graduate in English literature, whereas Laura chooses life in the sea among the waves and the nurdles. She is in ways the opposite of Harold; A “marine Goddess” (p. 4, l. 127) who rises from the deeps of the ocean and steals Harold’s heart. With her long and white-gold hair she......

Wide Sea

...Wide Sargasso Sea is a post colonial novel by Jean Rye. It is a typical subversive manoeuvre characteristic of post-colonial texts,which employs the strategy that the writer takes up a character or characters and uncovers its colonialist assumptions,subverting the text for post-colonial purposes. The novel acts as a prequel to Charlotte Brontë's famous 1847 novel Jane Eyre. It is the story of Antoinette Cosway (known as Bertha Mason in Jane Eyre), a white Creole heiress, from the time of her youth in the Caribbean to her unhappy marriage with Mr Rochester and relocation to England. Caught in an oppressive patriarchal society in which she belongs neither to the white Europeans nor the black Jamaicans, Rhys's novel re-imagines Brontë's devilish madwoman in the attic. As with many postcolonial works, the novel deals largely with the themes of racial inequality and the harshness of displacement and assimilation. For the main character in the novel,the character of Antoinette derives from Charlotte Brontë's repellent ,disgusting and gloomy wife of Mr’s Rochester. Rhys creates a prehistory for Bronte's character, tracing her development from a young solitary girl in Jamaica to a thoughtless and impertinent lunatic wife.By fleshing out Brontë's one-dimensional madwoman, Rhys enables us to sympathize with the mental and emotional decline of a human being. Antoinette is a far cry from the conventional female heroines of nineteenth- and even twentieth-century novels, who are often......

Chicken of the Sea

...________________________________________________________________________________________ Chicken of the Sea International The Jessica Simpson Spokesperson Decision [pic] _______________________________________________________________________________________ This case was written by Professor George E. Belch and Michael A. Belch. It is intended to be used as the basis for class discussion rather than to illustrate either effective or ineffective handling of a management situation. Introduction Chicken of the Sea International (COSI) is one of the oldest seafood companies in the United States. The company processes and markets a variety of seafood items under the Chicken of the Sea brand name including canned tuna, salmon, sardines, mackerel, crab, and clam products. The original company was founded in 1914 by Frank Van Camp and his son who bought the California Tuna Canning Company to can albacore tuna and changed the name to the Van Camp Seafood Company. However, the company began using the Chicken of the Sea trademark and brand name as a way to describe the taste of its tuna to consumers. Van Camp was the first company to can "light" tuna. So consumers would know to expect a mild-flavored white fish – that tasted similar to chicken – the company marketed it under the brand name Chicken of the Sea. It was such a success that the company eventually adopted the product name. The company operated under the Van Camp Seafood...

Star of the Sea

...THIS is a brave and artful novel disguised to appear safe and conventional. One can read on for some time as if it were simply a ''terror stalks the high seas'' thriller, but one would be an uncommon fool to do so for very long. Joseph O'Connor, an Irish critic and playwright who is also the author of several previous novels, lures us into an easy read that, before we know it, becomes a chilling indictment not of a murderer but of us. As a London publisher says midway through the book, advising a writer unsuccessfully peddling his fiction, this is ''a good old thumping yarn,'' the sort of thing a reader can ''sink his tusks into.'' But ''Star of the Sea'' is also an agonizing inquiry into the nature of abandonment and the difficulty of finding anyone who will truly care about the fate of others. How large does suffering have to loom before we take notice? O'Connor suggests that we can tolerate mountains of misery, sipping our coffee and reading our newspapers as the corpses pile up beneath the headlines. The Star of the Sea is a leaky old tub sailing from Ireland to New York in the terrible winter of 1847, carrying in its staterooms a reluctantly intertwined collection of characters. The most noteworthy is an Irish aristocrat, David Merridith, Lord Kingscourt, whose Oxford training has shown him ''how to put on like a cheerful idiot'' while he's got his ''hands sliding around your neck.'' Merridith and his family are being stalked by a man named Pius Mulvey, who has......

It was because of his mother that Harold decided to become a student in English literature. Harold chose the life on land.

She is a “marine Goddess” who rises from the deep to steal Harold’s heart. Harold describes her as a “seal”, because of her long and beautiful hair. By describing their relationship, you can say in fact that she is the ocean and he is the land. He chose life on land, studying English literature and she chose life in the water.

Sea Story

...Sea Story Write an analytical essay (800-1200 words) in which you analyse and interpret A.S. Byatt’s short story “Sea Story”. Part of your essay must focus on the writer’s use of literary quotations and on the role of nature in the story. Love cannot overcome every obstacle. This story serves as an example of how the ocean can be ruthless and unforgiving, and how people cannot best the ocean. The story is written by A.S. Byatt in 2012 and is set in Filey, a town east of Yorkshire. The plot of the story is the main character Harold, meeting a woman, Laura. In the beginning, he moves very slowly and carefully when interacting with her. They start spending more and more time together, but before they really get to know one another, Laura has to move to the Caribbean to study eels. The main character of the story is Harold, who was born into an ocean-loving family by a father who was an oceanographer and a mother who was an English teacher who wrote ”fierce little poems about waves and weather” p. 1 l. 8. He spent a lot of his youth around the ocean, either walking along or fishing. Despite his enormous love for the ocean, Harold chose a life as an English literature graduate at Oxford University.

Sea Story

...Sea Story There are two sides to love, love can bring people together and break some apart. This story is a good example of how this can happen. ‘Sea Story* is written by A.S. Bayatt and it is from 2012. The story takes place mainly east of Yorkshire in Oxford. However the story takes place on oceans that cover the world. We follow Harold in his poetic ways. The main character Harold was conceived close to the sea and was taken care by his parents. We get to know that the parents love the ocean and marine life. Harold’s mother was an English teacher and author of ‘Fierce little poems about the waves and weather’. His father was an oceanograph, just like his father before him. Harold’s love for the ocean is not the same as his parents, although he cares for it, he decides on living on the land to study. Laura is an opposite of Harold. Harold describes her as a seal, and a sea goddess that arises from the deep ocean, who comes and takes Harold’s heart away. While the two are opposites of each other, they are incomplete without each other. She is the ocean while he is the land, while she is in the ocean, studying eels; Harold sits by the shore studying English literature. This is also how they meat for the first time. It was by Harold’s boat where they saw each other for the first, but not the last. They were almost made to fall in love and be together. Time goes by and Harold sends letter to her, where she has moved to in the Caribbean. Laura does not get the letters...

Sea Story

...Sea story Being in love is one of the most difficult things, especially if you haven’t been it before. Love is such a powerful thing, and if you find your one true love, it can be hard to focus on other things. And sometimes our illusion of love might not last for long. Often we have an ideal of how our “perfect” soul mate should be or look, which is hard for us to find. But in this short story called “Sea story” written by A.S. Byatt, the main character, Harold, has finally found his one true love, and she is the perfect picture of his dream girl. But unfortunately she has to only be an illusion to him. All the way through the text is there a very poetic feeling. The text is marked by poetic language, which creates a uniform atmosphere throughout the whole text. Harold is raised with famous poets, which makes Harold think like a poet himself. When he is in Oxford studying and he misses home he then starts thinking about that time when his mother read poetry for him, “The wind would blast them or wrap itself round them, and his mother would quote Masefield. “I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky.”” (Page 1, lines 18-20). His use of literary quotations is making the reader relate to Harold. We understand his feelings and his thoughts; he is expressing them throughout these quotations. When he was at the pub with Laura and her friends he felt like their love was improving slowly, “He felt, unlike Marvell’s lover, that he had world enough and time to...

Sea Captain

...The Log of the Skipper's Wife by James W. Balano. This journal was originally written during the early 1900's by a young woman from Minnesota. It was later on compiled by her son (James Balano), and published. There are many topics that this book covers, the struggles of a young woman with a man's job in the early 1900's, marital conflicts, unhappy with her figure, eating habits, and the every day tortures of being a woman. Perhaps the biggest issues in this book was Dorothea's sex life. She was smart, quick witted, and had an amazing sense of humor. Her husband was a lady's man and knew nothing besides being a captain, which he did well at. Dorothea and her husband Fred were so different that it really caused a strain on their marriage. At times the only thing they seemed to share in common was the bed. Dorothea appeared to love sex, however her husband seemed like a bit of a nymphomaniac from what I gathered. She noted several times how he acted differently around other women, his collection of pornography, and how he was continually boasting of his conquests of women. It was all very degrading to Dorothea and she vented much of this in her journal. Fred also felt the need to tell Dorothea that she was not up to par at sexual positions. He claimed that other women he had been with were more flexible, and urged Dorothea to become more like them. He treated Dora more like a slave then he did a wife. I don't think he ever really knew how......
