Video Games, Violence and Parenting - The ignorance of people who argue against this shows their one-minded views on this topic. This leads to three obvious conclusions. One: Parents refuse to take responsibility to teach their children right from wrong. If a parent teaches them what is and what isn’t okay, then the majority of those kids are not going to grow up and think that it’s cool and awesome to run around imitating things they see on the T.v. or in video games. Parents who refuse to take this responsibility should also refuse to buy the games in the first place – Most if not all violent games get at least a ‘’Ages 15+’’ rating on them....   [tags: Media, Violent] 629 words

My Best Job: Licensed Practical Nurse for a Rehabilitation Facility - The best job I ever had happens to be my current one, which is a Licensed Practical Nurse, for a sub-acute rehabilitation facility. There are so many lives I have been fortunate enough to touch. The gratitude my patient’s demonstrate for my devotion towards their plan of care is the most rewarding. Now I would be somewhat dishonest if I said every day was a good day, however it seems as though the good days outweigh the bad days.

Holiday Shopping Nightmare - Holiday shopping, for me, is a nightmare because of the abundance of crowds, all of the fighting and competitiveness.

Canterbury Tales - Linking Griselda of The Clerk's Tale to the Biblical Sacrifice of Abraham - Linking Griselda of The Clerk's Tale and the Biblical Sacrifice of Abraham       The Clerk's Tale seems to strike most readers as a distasteful representation of corrupt sovereignty and emotional sadism; few can find any value in Walter's incessant urge to test his wife's constancy, and the sense that woman is built for suffering is fairly revolting to most modern sensibilities. Nevill Coghill, for instance, described the tale as "too cruel, too incredible a story," and he notes that "even Chaucer could not stand it and had to write his marvelously versified ironic disclaimer" (104-5)....   [tags: Clerk's Tale Essays]
