I’m not the Indian you had in mind; a video that was written and directed by Thomas King challenges the stereotypical image that America has towards Native Americans. King is also the author of a short novel “A seat in the Garden”. This short story also challenges the established perspective that American society has towards the Native Americans. There are various stereotypes and perspectives that a majority of the public has toward a particular group. For example some of the common stereo types that are seen throughout the media are that all Asians are good at math, women are primarily sex objects, All Africans like fried chicken, and all Mexicans are gangsters. These stereo types are not completely true for an entire group, yet they can be for a part of it. There is living and walking proof of many of the minority groups subverting the dominant view.
“A Seat in the Garden” opens up with a man named Joe working on his garden, and suddenly he notices a big Indian standing in his garden. Joe becomes furious and demands the Indian to leave. As soon as this story opens up we can already see that there is negative tension that Joe has towards Native Americans. When he demands the harmless Indian to leave and the Indian just sits there, for he shouts “Get the hell out of the corn, will ya… this is private property. You people ever hear of private property” (King). Once Joe decides to start pointing fingers at the Indian and assumes that he and his “people” lack the knowledge of what private property is; he begins to label Indians as illiterate. As Joe turns to look for his shovel to shoo the Indian away he is gone. One of Joe’s friends shows up later that day and as they share coffee Joe tells his friend Red about the Indian standing in his garden. The Next day as Joe works on his garden and once again he sees the Indian. The Indian just kind of sits there and says “if you build it they will come.” Joe then calls the police and explains to them his situation...

Today it was my first time going to the New Ark garden. I left home at about 4:50pm and it took me almost an hour to find Smith Street. I wanted to make sure I was on time because I never knew there were community gardens in the South, and did not know what to look for. I went to McKinley Middle right around the corner from the garden and still passed up the street about ten times. (It made me feel so blind because I know I looked past that street sign multiple times.) My GPS would not get signal so I had to try and find a map on my phone with my extremely horrible Sprint service. I stopped literally one street over for about 15 minutes and waited for my internet to load up the map. Once I found out where the street was I then turned down Smith Street and drove straight past the small garden, not noticing it until I saw Author waving to tell me to turn around. (For some reason I thought it would be bigger.) Seeing the Garden I expected it to be in worse condition because in class it was stated that the garden owners did not have time to keep the gardens up as much due to their schedules. (It was neatly set up.) The garden had three sections for plants to be grown. Two sections were neatly squared off with cinderblocks, and the other section had a tarp looking thing on it with neatly cut holes...
...Seats! Seats! Seats!
Have you ever experienced or witnessed the unpleasant situation where you walk into a classroom, or the library, or the canteen, only to find that most of the desks have already been occupied by books, bags, or other personal belongings, while the “owners” are not present? This kind of improper behavior can easily be found in almost all the Chinese schools, particularly in universities.
To tackle this stubborn illness, we ought to sort out some of the major reasons and take specified actions to deal with them.
When the number of seats is insufficient enough to meet the need of the students, desk-occupation emerges, thus leading to the aforementioned immoral scene.
Let’s take Guixiangyuan for example. There are 150tables on the second floor, providing 600 seats, but it serves 6000 to 9000 students every day. There are 4 main teaching buildings and several dormitory buildings in the west part of our school, but there are only 2 canteens there. In rush hours, students squeeze into the canteens and tend to occupy seats as long as they see one. As we can see, occupying seats is a very serious problem in Guixiangyuan (especially on the second floor). Students are afraid of having no place of learning or eating. However, using personal belongings to occupy seats may exacerbate the scarcity of facilities. And when the seats are...
Studying can be hard and very frustrating. When I first stepped into the student lounge I noticed that there were many activities for students. There were computers for students to access the Internet, places for students to sit, and a coffee shop that put out a wonderful aroma throughout the student lounge. As I looked around, I saw people studying and reading books.
Most of them all had some sort of beverage in their hands, and they seemed very relaxed. In the student lounge, there are plenty of computers available to everyone who wishes to use them. These computers can be used to look up anything needed for class purposes or for homework. The computers can also be used for entertainment if you want to play some games to take your mind off of your busy day ahead. Students can bring their own head phones to plug into the student lounge computers. While doing this they can listen to music without bothering other students in the lounge. The student lounge offers wireless Internet in the student lounge which can be very important to a lot of students. Wireless Internet provides you many options and access for study and research.
While sitting in the lounge my eyes began to wonder they see the lights, glowing a yellow color, hanging from the ceiling. They also see the walls falling from the ceiling to surround the room. As the eyes wonder more around the lounge they see people typing on their computers while other people are deep in conversations. The...
...Rappaccini's Daughter, Hawthorne uses symbolism to create a modern day tale of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.There are two settings for this story. The first and main setting is an eye appealing garden next to Giovanni Guasconti's room which is located in Padua,. Although a large portion of his stories are allegories, Hawthorne's preference is to draw more heavily on symbolism (Pennell 13).

... Definition of Software:
Software means computer instructions or data. Anything that can be stored electronically is software, in contrast to storage devices and display devices which are called hardware.
Categories of Software:
Software is often divided into two categories.
History of System and Application Software:
Systems programmers invariably wrote in assembly language. Experiments with hardware support in high level languages in the late 1960s led to such languages as PL/S, BLISS, BCPL, and extended ALGOL for large systems. Forth also has an application as a systems language. In the 1980s, C became worldwide, aided by the growth of UNIX. More recently C++ has seen some use.
IT application development has been on an evolutionary journey since the 1960’s which was written in assembler language. But later in November 2001 it was re-enhanced by IBM Software group.
Introduction of System and Application Software:
System software is any computer software which manages and controls computer hardware so that application software can perform a task. System software deals with the architecture of a computer.
Application software is all the computer software that causes a computer to perform useful tasks (compare with computer viruses) beyond the running of the computer itself. It interacts with end users and basically does whatever end user is working on. Application software does NOT deal with the...
Birds whistled in a nice, calm and fresh garden. The fresh new air came into my lungs and refreshed my mind. Leaves fell down to the ground and the natural waterfall splashed into the mini river. I have been on a holiday for two days now and came across this wonderful garden. People talked in the background as I walked past them towards the mini river. The natural environment was very peaceful I thought in my head.
A man came towards me and had a badge on his shirt that said owner of this garden. “Hi may I help you?” he asked with a mannered voice. “No thank you,” smiled at the owner. “This garden was made a year ago,” said the owner. “This is a very peaceful and calm place to relax,” I replied. The owner walked away towards other people as I walked towards another place. As I walked past the rocky path, I noticed writings on some rocks. It said “1982- 2002” on it. This was strange. Why would a rock have years on it, I questioned myself with a suspicious look. I kept on walking towards the flower garden.
The flowers here were very colourful and bright. As I got closer towards the flowers I came across a broken face on the ground. It looked like a rock with a face on it. This got too suspicious every time I got closer to the back. I started to wonder if this place was an old cemeterary. The smell of the flowers was very nice. The bees buzzed around the flower...
