Comnena used her ability of literature to write a work showing readers the truth behind her father, and his actions. She was determined to bring out to the world the truth behind her father, and tell his story of victories, emotions, and charity. Although she tried to keep her opinion to a minimum it seemed to seep through her words. Alexius I was a victorious emperor, who was militarily successful and wise. Anna Comnena showed her fathers military success in the battles, and described his powerful character through his ‘new formation’, the founding of the orphanage and the illness that lead to his death.
He sent a messenger to his own ‘folk’ to state that the Roman army was heading their way, following the messenger were his own men dressed in the armor of the Romans holding up the heads of the defeated. When Alexius’s folk saw this they were overflowing with fear and panic, although Palaeologus knew the emperor’s inventive genius was not fooled by the joke. When the folk realized that it was a misleading joke they became furious, although they did not see that this was the emperor’s way of building fear in them so that they are ready to be faced with anything that comes their way. The genius behind Alexius’s thinking technique was to plant fear and promptness in his soldiers and inhabitants. This was his way of keeping them prepared for anything that may come unexpected.
Anna Comnena continues book eight in her work with the promise of a marriage. The marriage between the emperors’ daughter and Theodore Gabras’s son Gregory was a mere promise; for the two were still underage, although Gregory was to be taken under the wing of the emperor until the two were legal of age. Soon Gabras’s wife passed and he married a second time to a woman of noble blood, although she and the sebastocrator’s wife were daughters of two brothers. This eliminated any chances of the marriage continuing, for the law and the canons of the church forbad the marriage of being...

He took a voluntary retirement from the Army services in the year1978.
Clad in a white dhoti, and a white Gandhian cap, he has emerged as one of the most influential non political leader this nation has witnessed since independence. In 1991 Anna started his campaign against corruption. The first case disclosed was that of irregularities done by 42 Forest Officers who duped the government.

Nonsense! Giving up life! O my god! Don’t want to live! Assist a suicide simple as that? How stupid? Though it’s hard to live, full of tension, sufferings, illness there is no excuse for it, however you need to and must live a life. But practically a life of hundreds of death is better than the death of a day, a suicide. There is nothing better idea than living a life which is full of sadness, isn’t it?
What else is better than ending a life rather than having a stressful, worried and worthless life? Firstly, in my opinion, I think that, if someone is having an unhappy life and wants not to live it more than he should be allowed to do whatever he wants, because it’s his life, he should be given a chance to live up his life or give up his life in the way he wants. I know it may be illegal in some countries but is it legal to persuade people to live a worried and worthless life? No its not. For example, if a man is suffering from severe disease, as a result he will die one day. So, why not today? Let him go for a mercy death. It should be allowed to suicide if a person wants, without any objection. In addition, I further state that-‘is it good to bear an unbearable pain which has already made us dead?’ Is it better to die every day and every hour? Would it not be better to stop all those pain in a single minute? Of course, then why don’t we give up if we wish to and if it has become an obligation?
However, some people would also argue that life is precious. God...

Anna in the Tropics Theme
The production of Anna in the Tropics generated many different themes throughout the play, however there was one theme that caught my attention and was supported much throughout the play. The theme identified most was the decision to solve issues with reason or to lower oneself to react in a violent matter, and allow evil to prevail. With many themes being prevalent, violence versus reason was communicated by the lighting of the play. The lighting designer, Mary Keegan, was able to use different lighting effects to help the audience better understand the message that was being delivered on stage. I don’t think I ever realized before how essential lighting was in theater, until I put my attention on it. When reason was occurring, the lighting was more whitish-blueish tint, and when the violence took place, the lighting changed to a more darkening of the stage. From the opening scene, with the lights coming on, till the last scene, when the stage went dark, lighting was important to help clarify the theme.
Prior to this performance I viewed lighting as a tool for making the stage visible for the audience to see and guy with a headset standing on a balcony maintaining a spotlight on the main character. However, after seeing Anna in the Tropics and becoming a more active audience member, I realized that my previous view was wrong....
What is this constant need for more in life? Can’t we just be happy with what we have? Curiosity and a desire to push the limits stunt the worthwhile goal of a lasting contentment. In Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, Anna’s life is spiritually empty, and so she fills it with earthly pleasures (such as adultery) to fill the void. Levin, the other protagonist, also feels throughout the story as though something is missing in his life, but ends up actually discovering what will maintain his happiness in the long run. A main theme in the book is whether or not it is possible to preserve a happy life in a healthy way. Both characters, Anna and Levin, demonstrate how and how not to accomplish this. Filled with despair and hopelessness, as well as completeness and awareness, Anna Karenina shows what an effect, whether positive or negative, people can impose upon themselves.
We begin with Anna, who sets herself up to be unhappy when she marries Alexei Alexandrovich. She never loved him, and never felt complete with him. In19th century Russia, an uninspired marriage such as this was not uncommon. Women are loving creatures though, and need to be loved in return. Anna’s affair with Vronsky was mere infatuation, but because love was absent from her married life, she at least wanted to feel some flame of passion. She justifies her actions by saying, “They don’t know how [Alexei] has been stifling my life for...
...Anna Sui (born August 4, 1964) is an American fashion designer. Her luxury brand retails globally in the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Her clothing, fragrance, cosmetic, and accessories lines sell at Anna Sui stores in over 50 countries and are also widely distributed at leading department stores worldwide. Sui is known for her timeless designs and ability to transcend eras with her historical and culturally inspired collections.
After leaving Parsons, she worked for a variety of junior sportswear companies. During this time she began designing clothing out of her apartment. With the encouragement of friends Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista, Sui launched her first runway show in 1991. "That those professional beauties were then at the height of their fame helped stoke the reception Sui got from buyers and the news media," and helped launch the timeless and unique style that Sui's has developed over the past two decades.
In 1991, Sui opened her first retail location at 113 Greene Street in New York City's Soho District. This shop, with its lavender walls, red floors, antique black furniture, and signature dolly head mannequins has become a staple of SOHO fashion and has guided the aesthetic of Anna Sui stores worldwide. Evoking the Anna Sui lifestyle, "the stores have come to emphasize the epitome of culture in a continually shifting fashion world." Over her career, Sui has also grown...
1. On the 21st of October 1995, Anna Wood took an ecstasy tablet at a dance party and died three days later. At such a young and thriving age, Anna Wood was just 15 years old with a loving family, many friends and a new job. On the night of the event that had taken place a series of risk behaviours were undertaken. Firstly by wanting to take an ecstasy tablet to get high as well as not having any knowledge on the actual drug. By having a broader knowledge on the drug she may have been still alive as she would’ve only had taken half due to knowing a whole tablet would be too much.
Another risk behaviour, was going around the corner to take the “E” and being too egger to take the pill. If she had waited for her friend George, who had further experience, as he quoted “I have taken ecstasy about fifteen times” she as well would’ve been alive. First signs of her being ill and still staying at the club at early hours of the morning would definitely be major risk behaviour. As the night progressed her condition was worsening and she collapsed after vomiting which is yet risk behaviour.
Anna’s friends taking Anna to her friend’s house was the wrong thing to do, as she should have been taken to her house where her parents could see her condition and may have used protective measures straight away like phoning an ambulance. Or even straight to the hospital if it was closer than a forty minute drive to Belrose. Anna’s...

Anna In The Tropics
By Nilo Cruz
It has become common today for somebody to dismiss the dramatic world of
a play. In Elinor Fuch’s Essay ‘Visit To A Small Planet’ she explains how a play is
constructed and the different elements that are contributed to make up the dramatic
world. She tells the reader that nothing is an accident and everything has meaning.
While taking the knowledge taught by Fuch, I applied it to the reading of Anne In The
Tropics . Anna In The Tropics is a play set in Florida in a Cuban American cigar
factory, with the lower class making the cigars, it shows the social aspect of
relationships, and the tradition of a Lector reading to everybody while they work.
While the tradition and relationships get intertwined, nothing will break their
ongoing passion for cigar rolling. In Anna In The Tropics the element that I was
intrigued with the most was time.
The ongoing theme of time is shown through the time of year, as in winter or
summer. The book is set in the summer, which in Tampa is both hot and humid. The
climate during the summer represents the ongoing tension and stress in the book.
This is shown through the dialogue when Ofelia says, “ there is nothing like reading
a winter book in the middle of summer. It’s like having a fan or an icebox by your
side to relieve the heat and caloric...
