Report - Assignment Example Any childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s right forums should relate existing human rights law to the particular circumstances of these children and develop existing laws to meet the specific needs of vulnerable children. It is the responsibility and rights of parents and educators to offer guidance in the implementation of rights of these children. They must develop an approach that, takes into account the childÃ¢â¬â¢s evolving capacities, such as age and self-realization. Self-identity can be explained as the descriptive characteristics, abilities, qualities, of a person. (Freeman, 2000) Listening to children talk about their right and rights of other, there is need to put in place more active ways of particularly identifying childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s views, mainly when it comes to conducting a research and educational practices. Children, and in particular young ones, should be allowed to express their views in any way possible even through childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s activities like drawing and orally. The meanings young ones attach to their experiences are rarely the meanings that the adults in charge of them would ascribe. (Bandman, 1999) The session will focus on the importance of understanding how children construct and develop their own sense of what their rights are and in what way they develop a sense of belonging within the community and family they come from. It will scrutinize the importance of early experiences in relation to their self-worth. The connection among the vision, belonging, and the shaping of childrenÃ¢â¬â¢s identity will be discussed, including the areas of attachment, social- cultural heritage, developing experiences and progressive relationship structure will be explored.

Ggr252 Notes Essay To gain a better understanding of the retail and commercial activity in the Toronto area, two different types of retail will be evaluated in the following report. The character, market orientation and location of a retail space all play crucial role in contributing to the success of the business. All three aspects of the retail spheres will be carefully assessed in order to make direct comparisons between the two types of retail businesses. The two retail systems that will be contrasted includes the ancillary retail system in downtown Toronto and the Retail Strip on Spadina, south of Baldwin. Part A Ã¢â¬â Ancillary Retail (First Canadian Place) The ancillary retail system in downtown Toronto is one of the most unique retail systems in the world. It is an underground shopping center that connects all the major banks and towers in the core of the city. The specific area that we investigate is called Ã¢â¬Å"First Canadian PlaceÃ¢â¬ and it is located on King Bay St. This geographic region is one of the most densely engaged regions in all of Canada and this is because of the large skyscrapers that are located on top of this retail center. Its primary customers are upper-middle class workers that are working in the surrounding banks and institutions. Most of the consumers are not wearing jackets and this suggests that they were able to access this center without going outdoors. This is a significant advantage because people are more willing to go to areas that are easily accessible. The retail center is easily accessible by many different types of transportation. There are two subway stations that are located within this area and there are also buses on the street level. As well, it is very accessible by foot because the retail center is connected to many other different shopping centers in the core of Toronto. There are many different types of stores in this retail center but they are all focused on Ã¢â¬Å"white collarsÃ¢â¬ . Most of the customers are workers in large firms and they want quick access to different types of stores. This is why there is a large amount of fast-food/food court stores that allow workers to have their lunch quickly and efficiently. The busiest time of the day for this retail center is during lunch hour and rush hours because it is very convenient for all the workers to access this center. A 15 minute pedestrian count during lunch hours (around 1:30pm) indicated that approximately 1993 people access this ancillary retail system. This systemÃ is in private property because it is under many large skyscrapers which are owned by private firms. This system is not very easy to navigate because of the complex connections of different shopping centers. Part B Ã¢â¬â Spadina, South of Baldwin (China Town) The retail strip on Spadina, south of Baldwin (known as China Town) is a completely different type of retail center. This retail is located outside and it is very easy to navigate since the arrangement of the retail stores is not complex. The streetcar track on Spadina helps people to identify the directions more easily (North Ã¢â â South). This area is accessible by public transportation as a result of the frequent availability of streetcars and subway. There are also parking spots on either side of the road that can accommodate for cars. The area surrounding this retail strip consists of schools, university, and small houses. There are a wide variety of stores within the retail strip, offering customers many selections to choose from. Most of the retail spaces consist of restaurants, fashion and accessories stores, and family health services. However, there are also other services being offered, such as banking services, furthermore, there are meat shop and supermarket. This retail space is considered to be public as the entire business strip is not managed or controlled as a whole by any rules and regulations. And most evidently, the retail strip itself is located on a public street. It is possible that the city planners may have designed the street and the retail area to accommodate for the needs of the surrounding residential area. However, the actual stores and their specific styles and characteristics that each retail business offers are mainly unplanned (there might be some planned aspects). In the pedestrian count that was conducted during lunch time (around 1:30pm), a total of 327 pedestrians were counted during the 15-minute count. Chinatown is geared toward the market segment of low to mid-income individuals. Thus, most of the pedestrians are dressed in casual wear and jackets (Note: stores are located outside Ã¢â¬â winter period). The majority of consumers in this retail strip are Asians who speak Cantonese or mandarin and large portion of them are seniors. Part C Ã¢â¬â Compare and Contrast After careful analysis of the above two retail spaces, many similarities and differences can be drawn. First and foremost, both business entities consist of multiple retail stores that offer a vast variety of goods and services. This allows customers to have and opportunity to be exposed to a great selection of goods and services, and also creates convenience for the shoppers. In considering the physical location and layout of the two retail spaces, it is evident that both are located where a large amount of traffic can be found. People arrive at these areas by cars, transit (streetcars in China Town/buses in First Canadian Place, subway, cars for both), and walk, etc. This brings more customers to the businesses, and also helps accommodate for large amounts of traffic, which may be created as a result of it. Therefore, in terms of accessibility, both locations are very convenient to customers everywhere because of public access. The Ancillary Retail System is located in one of the most important commercial centers in Canada. There is a large population working above this system and this allows the system to have many customers during the weekdays. The disadvantage is that workers do not work during weekends would cause the system to have less customers, or the stores in the system might not be even opened during the weekends. The major disadvantage to the retail strip is that since the strip is located outdoors, many people would not be willing to shop outdoors in the cold winter. It is possible that the number of customers in the summer would be greater than the numbers in the winter, but it is more likely that customers would prefer the PATH since the system would have the air conditioning turned on in the summer. In both of the retail areas, we can see their different layouts. In First Canadian Place, most of the food services are centralized in the food court, whereas in the retail strip there are no spe cific patterns or layouts. This might be because it is a public space and the retail center is unplanned. The two different types of retail vary in their composition. The PATH system has more chaining retails than those in the retail strip. The storesÃ¢â¬â¢ degree of speciality in the strip is higher, this is because the stores are independent and owned by individuals that has the freedom to decorate the store and sell as they wish, without rules and regulations. Through the evidence from my observations, I believe that the retail stripÃ is less managed than the Ancillary System, because of the nature of the area. The retail strip is located on a public road, the city planners at most are doing their jobs setting out this area as retail but not as much as planning each store and how many stores of different types for this strip to be successful. The Ancillary Retail though, is a planned center, the land is owned as private property, and therefore, the stores run under rules and regulations. Before the stores can open in this planned center, marketing would have been done to see if th e center can accommodate another such shop in there. I believe that everything that goes in the PATH is carefully monitored and managed by a department under its private owner. Although own is private and one is public, one is planned and one is unplanned, despite these differences, they also have many similarities that kept them both running; their styles and selections attract different kinds of customers. The different specialty stores on the retail strip would attract customers that are looking for uniqueness and those that are looking for Oriental-style cuisines, and the stores in the Ancillary Retail would provide customer with convenience to their everyday needs and quick services such as the fast food services to customers who work nearby. Overall, these two different retail areas have their own qualities that attract customers, and everyday there are changes in the market and changes are made in those types of retail everywhere to suit out changing needs.

utation came to her house for her taxes, Faulkner describes how the house and Ms. Emily looks. "only Miss Emily's house was left, lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps-an eyesore among eyesores", this statement explains how the house gives off such a depressing mood. "Her skeleton was small and spare;", this line shows us how her appearance showcases death also. When Ms. Emily was younger, her deceased father used to force away all the young men that was in love with her. The summer after her father death, she fell in love with a Yankee by the name of Homer Barron. Everyone in the town was whispering about their relationship and wondering if they were married. After a while they stop seeing Homer and decided that they got married. The townspeople then proceeds by saying that Ms. Emily then died a while after. They didn't know she was sick. After they buried her, they knew that there was one room that wasn't opened. So after they decently buried her they went to see upon the room. When they opened the room they was greeted by great amounts of dust. They also explain that the "room decked and furnished as for a bridal: upon the valance curtains of faded rose color, upon the rose-shaded lights, upon the dressing table, upon the delicate array of crystal and the man's toilet things backed with tarnished silver, silver so tarnished that the monogram was obscured." They also saw a man's collar, tie, suit, shoes, and discarded socks. "Then shockingly, laying right there in the bed was the man. For a long while we just stood there, looking down at the profound and fleshless grin. The body had apparently once lain in the attitude of an embrace. What was left of him, rotted beneath what was left of the nightshirt, had become inextricable from the bed in which he lay; and upon him and upon the pillow beside him lay that even coating of the patient and biding dust. Then we noticed that in the second pillow was the indentation of a head. One of us lifted something from it, and leaning forward, that faint and invisible dust dry and acrid in the nostrils, we saw a long strand of iron-gray hair." SonnyÃ¢â¬â¢s Blues by James Baldwin Frequently anthologized, James Baldwin's "Sonny's Blues" tells the story of two brothers who come to understand each other.

The man in the water makes what would normally be seen as a normal disaster, if such a thing is possible, into a story that stunned so many people. Allende and Rosenblatt both present alike themes in similar and different ways. One way that these two stories are different is that the man in Ã¢â¬Å"The Man in the WaterÃ¢â¬ tried to help as many people as he could, even when he knew the consequences could be death. But Azucena didnÃ¢â¬â¢t really help anyone. Their deaths were also different. 3. Isabel Allende used a realistic fiction story-like approach, while Roger Rosenblatt used an informative, report-like approach. 4. These stories are very similar because they are in the same genre yet still have differences. This essay will compare and contrast these two stories. More specifically, this essay will be comparing and contrasting how both stories convey the genre of magical realism through the characters, and literary devices (how they show it). 5. In the next two paragraphs I will tell you one similarity and one difference that these two writings have regarding their topic and theme. 6. In Ã¢â¬Å"The Man in WaterÃ¢â¬ and Ã¢â¬Å"And of clay are we createdÃ¢â¬ , nature is used in both. They are also both about death, a monster that takes what it wants. Many themes appear in the short stories, but there is only one that both have in common. That is, humans are not powerless against nature. 7. A difference between the short story and the article is that in The Man in the Water, the author didnÃ¢â¬â¢t seem to really exaggerate as much as Isabel Allende, the author of And of Clay are we Created. Allende used magic realism and Rosenblatt was more realistic. 8. In two specific stories, Isabel AllendeÃ¢â¬â¢s And of Clay Are We Created and Roger RosenblattÃ¢â¬â¢s The Man in the Water, disaster strikes and the people in the stories are symbols of what true human beings should be like; faithful, positive, and strong in the heart and mind.

The primary parts of an atom are protons, neutrons, and electrons. Take a closer look at what a proton is and where its found. Proton Definition A proton is a component of an atomic nucleus with a mass defined as 1 and a charge of 1. A proton is indicated by either the symbol p or p. The atomic number of an element is the number of protons an atom of that element contains. Because both protons and neutrons are found in the atomic nucleus, they are collectively known as nucleons. Protons, like neutrons, are hadrons, composed of three quarks (2 up quarks and 1 down quark). Word Origin The word proton is Greek for first. Ernest Rutherford first used the term in 1920 to describe the nucleus of hydrogen. The existence of the proton had been theorized in 1815 by William Prout. Examples of Protons The nucleus of a hydrogen atomÃ or the HÃ ionÃ is an example of a proton. Regardless of the isotope, each atom of hydrogen has 1 proton; each helium atom contains 2 protons; each lithium atom contains 3 protons and so on. Proton Properties Because opposite charges attract each other, protons and electrons are attracted. Like charges repel each other, so two protons exert repulsion on each other.Protons are stable particles that do not decay into other particles. Free protons are common, often formed when sufficient energy is available to separate protons from electrons.Free protons are found in plasma. About 90 percent of cosmic rays consist of protons.The radioactive decay of free neutrons (which are unstable) may produce protons, electrons, and antineutrinos.

In his essay titled Ã¢â¬Å"Gay Marriage: Societal Suicide,Ã¢â¬ Charles Colson talks about his reasons for opposing same-sex marriage. The essaysÃ¢â¬â¢ main argument is built around ColsonÃ¢â¬â¢s belief that legalizing same-sex marriage would lead to the decoupling of marriage, and ultimately result in what he describes as: Ã¢â¬Å"an explosive increase in family collapse, out of wedlock births - and crime.Ã¢â¬ Colson shares his personal experiences as a prison minister, various studies, statistics, and real world examples to elucidate the reasons behind his controversial stance on marital rights. Although the essay provides a variety of different types of evidence to illustrate ColsonÃ¢â¬â¢s position on the subject, it is through sharing his personal experiences fromÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦To expatiate upon the latter part of his thesis, Colson enlightens the reader by sharing the events that took place in Norway following the legalization of same-sex marriage in 1993. Prior to the imposition of same-sex marriage, Colson states that, Ã¢â¬Å"Norwegians enjoyed low out of wedlock birth rate. After the imposition of same-sex marriage, NorwayÃ¢â¬â¢s out of wedlock birth rate shot up as the link between marriage and child bearing was broken and cohabitation became the norm.Ã¢â¬ While indeed relevant to the argument, the out of wedlock birth rate statistic alone lacked the potency necessary to successfully persuade the reader of the threat imposed by legalizing same-sex marriage. The single specific statistic does not provide enough information to justify ColsonÃ¢â¬â¢s claim that legalizing same sex marriage would result in family breakdown and criminal activity as suggested by his thesis. As a result, the statistic is largely inefficacious since it does not provide any additional background information to further illustrate that the spike in out of wedlock birth rates experienced by Norway was in fact, a direct result of the legalization of same-sex marriage. Consequently, this error in procedure leaves the premise of ColsonÃ¢â¬â¢s argument vulnerable to scrutiny in addition to suggesting the presence of a post hoc fallacy, as he does not offer any reasons to rule out that the sequence of events detailed may be purely coincidental.

Search for Innocence in American Modernism American Literature from its very beginning has been centered around a theme of innocence. The Puritans wrote about abandoning the corruption of Europe to find innocence in a new world. The Romantics saw innocence and power in nature and often wrote of escaping from civilization to return to nature. After the Civil War, however, the innocence of the nation is challenged. The Realists focused on the loss of innocence and in Naturalist works innocence is mostly gone. During these periods of American Literature it seems almost as if a hole was being dug, a sort of emptying of innocence, and after World War I the Modernists called this hole the wasteland Many Modernist works focus onÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Secondly, a return to innocence is almost like a return to virtue. The example of this that comes most readily to mind is the complete turn around of Jean Valjean in Victor Hugos Les Miserables. It is remembering that the world really can be a place filled with beauty and wonder , virtue and meaning, and then acting so as to belong to that world, rather than the world of the wasteland. What does it mean to belong to the world of the wasteland? Son of man, You cannot say, or guess, for you know only A heap of broken images, where the sun beats And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief, And the dry stone no sound of water. (Eliot, 1448) Son of man refers to Ezekiel II, I where God directs Ezekiel to stand. The inhabitants of the wasteland are fallen and unenlightened, their personalities and world fragmented. There is no love in the wasteland, only alienation. The couple in Hills Like White Elephants find themselves unable to communicate, as is shown by their meaningless and shallow conversations and their inability to understand one another when they do say anything meaningful. This lack of communication is also displayed in the following lines of The Wasteland: My nerves are bad to-night. Yes, bad. Stay with me. Speak to me. Why do you never speak. Speak.
