1. After seven years of ever-lurking silence Ann does something she soon regrets. At the end of the story Ann says, “If you knew him though- John would try” (p. 7). So did Ann really know John? I think Ann did know John and she knew that he would come home like he always did. But I think she let herself believe what Steven continued to say which was no one would risk coming home in such a bad storm. Ann always had feelings for Steven, but they were all for the wrong reasons. So I think her act with Steven was her defiance of seven years of ‘ever-lurking silence’ with John. Ann always felt alone with John and I think she thought Steven could give her more than what John had given her, but soon after her act with Steven she realized she was wrong. Ann realized John was a man and there was nothing Steven could give her that John wouldn’t, but by the time Ann realized this it was too late.
2. John was a victim of his wife’s betrayal. He was able to fight his way through the storm only because of his love and devotion for Ann. But little did John know that Ann had surrendered to the storm while he was trying to fight the storm only to come home, to see what was happening while he was gone. Before John left for his fathers, he said to Ann, “Twice a week before we were married I never missed and there were bad blizzards that winter” (p. 1). John truly loved Ann but she betrayed him which led to his death the night of the terrible storm. It was Ann’s disappointing love and actions that made John think that he was a bad husband. Which led to John going back out into the storm, he thought that with him out of the picture Ann and Steven could be happy together. Due to Ann’s and Steven’s actions John died. John was a victim- not of the snow, but of his wife’s betrayal.
3. The story is told in a third-person omniscience point of view, and at the beginning of the story there is a shared omniscience where both Ann’s and John’s perspectives are given. But when John...
...Santiago Nasar leaving his front door early on a rainy Monday morning to see the Bishop at the docks. Only an hour later he is “carved up like a pig” on the very stoop of the door he had left from. Throughout the rest of the novel the story as to why and who killed Santiago is revealed. Garcia uses many motifs and symbols through the course of this story, including doors/architecture. Doors and architecture provide a connection to the rest of society, and through that, doors are a gateway for characterization, destiny, and social commentary.
“The door to the square was quoted several times with a dime-novel title: “The Fatal Door.”” Santiago Nasar can be characterized by the doors he walks through as they also portray his destiny and social commentary. Although the main narrative is focused on him, Santiago remains much of a mystery through the novel. All that is really said is that he was a child of a marriage of convenience, he was handsome and rich, innocent of the crime he was accused of, and because of his deceased father he appreciated bravery, guns, and hunting. Santiago’s father’s house, “a former two story warehouse, with two stories, walls of rough planks, and a peaking tin roof,” (pg. 10) was redone as an open, sociable home with its large windows and many rooms. However, despite his father’s vision of the house, Santiago can be characterized as a...
Steel Door is a privately owned regional manufacturer of residential and commercial garage doors. It operates in 150 markets in 11 Western and Rocky Mountain States and parts of North and West Texas. Steel Door has recorded sales gains in each of the past 10 years that exceeded the industry growth rate, and in 2002, recorded net sales of $9.2 million Impressive gains, but the total sales volume in 2002 only represents a 2.6% share of the market in which they operate. In order to preserve its buying position with suppliers, particularly with respect to raw materials for its garage doors, it needs to attain a larger critical mass of sales volume. To make this happen, the sales target for 2003 was set at $12.5 million, which represents a 36% increase from 2002 sales, and about a 1% increase in market share. It is November 2002, and an action plan needs to be determined quickly in order to allow for a January implementation.
Growth rate has exceeded that of the industry in each of the past 10 years.
Great relationship with exclusive dealers, who produce 70% of the company's sales.
Only controls 2.6% of the share of the markets in which it operates.
Appears to be the third brand in its non-exclusive dealer stores, which accounts for only 10% of individual dealer sales volume of garage doors
...During the late 1960's bands sang of love and peace while drugs were passed out at every moment. But for The Doors it was different, because they could get a person high by just listening to songs of mystery and intenseness. The nights belonged to the gods of revelry and rebirth, and the songs invoked their potent passions, the Oedipal nightmare of "The End," the breathless gallop of "Not to Touch the Earth," the doom of "Hyacinth House," the ecstasy of "Light My Fire," the dark uneasy undertones of "Can't See Your Face in My Mind," and the alluring loss of consciousness in "Crystal Ship." And like rituals, The Doors willingly offered themselves as a sacrifice to be torn apart, to bleed, to die, to be reborn for people to listen to their music.
In 1965 m Morrison had met Ray Manzarek at the UCLA Graduate School of Film. They were on the beach in Southern California where Morrison recited his poem, Moonlight Drive, to Manzarek. At which point Manzarek insisted on collaborating to make songs. His brothers, Rick and Jim, were the original guitarists for a brief amount of time until Ray met Robby Krieger and John Densmore through yoga and meditation class.
Ray Manzarek, a classically trained pianist, with a deep love for the blues and jazz, wrote the themes for many of the songs and played not only the keyboard parts but simultaneously propelled the band with melodic driving bass lines. John Densmore, a jazz drummer known for shamanism rhythm...
Significance of doors and windows in Wuthering Heights
In literature we can come across many expressions where the word door or window is used either to picture the scene or situation; or where the doors and windows are used metaphorically. The door and window are generally considered to be not only something what keeps warm inside the house and does not let anyone unwanted in.
Metaphorically the meaning of the door can reach much wider range. ‘Door’ has strong link the soul of a man. When expressions containing door are used to describe man’s behaviour or feelings its use bears various values such as open door – an open mind or open heart; close door – detached behaviour and others. Moreover the depicturing of someone’s door can be meant by the author on one side and received by the reader on the other side as description of the owner of the door. The front door of his house was not often used – he was a loner, the front door was armoured and well protect – the owner is either afraid of his house and insides or paranoid.
Another use of doors we can observe in description of places and situations. The state of a door somehow sets the scene in a literature work. This comes from our everyday experience for we judge i.e. houses...

Steel Door Technologies, Inc. (SDT) is experiencing growing pains. This privately held corporation is regionally based and moderately sized. SDT has recorded sales gains in each of the past ten years that exceeded the industry growth rate and have added 50 dealers in the past decade. This growth has catapulted SDT to the brink of becoming a large corporation with an ever increasing geographical footprint. On one hand, SDT has enjoyed a better than average growth rate. However, on the other hand, they have neglected to grow their manufacturing and distribution infrastructure to maintain a competitive position within the larger market place they have grown into. In order to increase its buying position with suppliers, senior executives believe that SDT has to attain a larger critical mass of sales volume.
SDT manufactures and sells steel garage doors to the residential and commercial markets. The doors are sold through a distribution chain of 350 dealers located in 11 states that represent 150 different markets. The primary purchase of new doors from SDT is for replacement of old doors and the remainder of the purchases are broken down between new home construction and commercial use. Currently, SDT has 50 exclusive dealers and 300 non-exclusive dealers that represent $9.2 M in sales for 2002 fiscal year. The 50 exclusive dealers represent 70% of the total sales or...
...Opening Doors Sociology Report
A. Identify Problem
We chose to do our research on the reaction people would give to us us holding a door open for them when they were not that close. This experiment was chosen because we thought that people might feel pressured to get to the door. For what we did to test this was to go into public places,and do it ourselves. We went to the Mall and held the door open for people when they were not very close, and recorded their reaction.
B. Review the Literature
Article 1: On Chivalry, Opening Doors, and Basic Humanity by Libby Anne
