What is an American?America. A land of beauty and excitement, as well as a cultural melting pot for people of all shapes, sizes, colors, and languages. Of course, with this knowledge in hand and mind, a question arises, “What is an American?” Well, let’s dive into a few subjects and find out just what IS an American, shall we?
First, allow me to make a clear statement here, Americans are most certainly not lazy. This is evident in “Earth on Turtle’s Back” it shows that Americans are rather determined. Yes, the animals in the story fail many times to bring up the earth from underwater so the Skywoman can rest, but do they give up? No, they try and try again, only stopping after their success, proving that Americans are anything but lazy, need we forget, they wrote this story, so, if anything, they are determined and hard working.
As we can see, Americans aren’t lazy, what they ARE, however, is smart. Looking at “Learning English the Sinatra Way” it
Aotearoa: The Maui Cycle, Myth and Legends ContestThe demigod Maui is undoubted the most famous character in the mythology of the Maoris and as hero and “trickster” he reflects and shapes value conception of the culture of his people. In a society that grants the highest rank in the family to the first-born as well as the succession to the father, he assumes as the youngest of the family (potiki) a certain exceptional position – similar to the “nestling” in our society. He is spoilt and meets with more indulgence than his elder siblings.
It is interesting to state that the majority of the male heros in the Maori mythology are eldest sons or chiefs. But also a lot of Potikis cause a stir. They are outsiders like Maui. At the beginning they are discriminated but later on they leave the “natural” heros far behind because of their cunning and their very great particular daring.
They are the ones who violate all rules. Maui proves that orders are not irrefutable and that cunning and a good portion

The Unkind Prison Life
Jimmy Santiago Baca is a man who has endured more hardships than most ever should. And his resolve, endurance, and outlook have been tested again and again. Much of his literary education came from his own determination to learn in between his sessions of electroshock treatment. And his life in prison or his shared experiences with others who are or have been in the system are the focus of his poetic writings. “There Are Black’ focuses on the experiences and the life of the guards to the prisoners, while still explaining the system of race that has been created in the sub-culture of prison life, while the poem ‘Oppression’ focuses on the need and desire to endure the hardships of life behind bars. Both are orientated to show the life of the convict, and how prison affects both the individual’s outlook and his or her resolve to

The clouds spun together and created a blanket that covered the bright blue sky. The wind picked up speed and made the already chilly fall weather cooler. By this time the sun had already set. Luz rubbed her arms to keep herself warm, her skinny jeans and pink t-shirt barely providing her any warmth, as she along with her boyfriend, Nathan, her friend, Gabriel, and her little sister, Wendy, trekked through the small woods behind Nathan’s house. The city of Weslaco didn't have any woods, but behind Nathan’s house were a group of trees that resembled a small woods. Nathan was clothed in a plain navy blue shirt with blue jeans and tennis shoes. Gabriel wore a white jacket over a blue shirt, jeans, and black boots. Wendy had her brown hair flowing behind her and wore a long sleeved light gre
Words from a Vampire BatWords from a Vampire Bat
Why am I so different? I’ve been placed into a group, but I’m the only one who has this unique feature. Even among my own kind, I am isolated. Is it what I need to survive? Or is it my undeserved reputation? I can’t understand what I’m treated like this when there is one even worse than I. I will strive to find the answers to this mystery.
I don’t need much of it to survive. The others rely on fruit, nectar or even insects. They call me a freak, a monster, because I require the life-blood of others to live. But while they constantly hunger for more, I am satisfied with merely two teaspoons per day (is that really too much to ask for?). Besides, I don’t need to kill to survive, unlike those insect-eaters, or that...thing. My parents were willing to give up what little life-blood they could obtain for me, rather facing starvation so that I could grow. I bet they don’t even understand this belief, this value. My father los

consceince is enateConscience is innate. Discuss. (35 marks)
There are many arguments involving ideas about human conscience and whether it is something that we are born with or not; many religious figures, such as Augustine of Hippo would say that conscience is the voice of God and is therefore innate in all humans. If conscience is the voice of God, why would people sin – what if someone appeared to completely lack a conscience? Aquinas, who was also a religious figure (he was both a friar and a priest), disagreed with the idea the theory that conscience is the voice of God. In his book 'Summae Theologica' he argued that conscience was more like moral guidelines that had been placed there by God to help us work towards good and away from evil. Some psychologists, such as Jean Piaget, would disagree with this and say that conscience has absolutely nothing to do with God and that it is simply something that develops during childhood and stays with us throughout our lives.
