What Women Really Do in the Bathroom - What Women Really Do in the Bathroom Throughout the ages, mankind has been troubled by a multitude of questions. Through perseverance and great intellectual curiosity, many of these questions have answers. Long have they pondered questions such as “Why is the sky blue?” “Why is grass green?” “Is the sky falling?” “What is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything?” and “What is the average velocity of an unladen swallow?” Thus far, we have been successful in compiling answers. However, there are other questions such as “Where do all the socks in laundry go?” “Why are gooses geese but mooses not meese?” and “What would we do without any hypothetical questions?” that have yet to be answered....   [tags: Papers] 336 words

Use of Bathroom Scenes in the Film Pulp Fiction - Bathrooms are filthy. They are grimy, soiled porcelain wastelands swarming with harmful bacteria and human waste. And they’re one of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite tools to use on the big screen. If one were to study the history of American media, he or she may notice that bathrooms are scarcely pictured. In fact, it wasn’t until the 1960 release of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho that a toilet was shown in cinema. The featured toilet caused quite a stir among critics, and became a symbol of American ethics....   [tags: Quentin Tarantino] 1654 words

Dorm or Home? - Dorm or Home One of the first major decisions that a student preparing for college must address is if a dormitory is best for them or if it would be better for them to live at home. Dorm live has much less structure than living at home so students must quickly learn to develop their own guidelines that will allow them to be successful in a more camp like environment. Living at home can stifle the growth process that is a normal part of maturing into an adult.

My Classroom Management Plan - Many of us tend to equate classroom management with discipline (and for that matter, to equate discipline with punishment, but that's another story). I see classroom management as the processes and procedures that are in place to mitigate the need for punishment, leaving discipline to cleave to its roots of "to follow." Anything else is not classroom management. It’s damage control. Classroom management starts, for me, with very clear expectations, and firmly established procedures. I begin the year (or semester) with a more formal, regulated tone, and have so far been able to end each year and semester with an atmosphere of relaxed mutual respect....   [tags: Classroom Management 2014]
