Jumbled Popcorn - Jumbled Popcorn In writing a paper I often start out full of ideas and methods of analysis about the topic or issue at hand. However, I find it tedious to have to connect those ideas; yet, I want my paper to be cohesive and organized. My rough draft paper often seems as if someone crumpled it up and threw it in a blender. I always know what I want to say and feel that I have a good development of ideas, but often struggle in drawing out my main points.

Shakespeare, Popcorn and a Soda - The goal of this piece of writing is to make a comparative study of the various works of Shakespeare, but not as they are presented in their written form. Rather, I am choosing to explore and compare his works as they have been presented and adapted for contemporary audiences through the medium of film. What is lost in adaptation. What is gained. Do contemporary accoutrements lend themselves to a deeper understanding of the original works; does the "magic" of editing and special effects lend itself to a similar deeper understanding, or does it instead make the work seem too "real?" Rather than seek out various adaptations based upon their critical merits or demerits, I chose to instead focus only on the most recent adaptations of any given work....   [tags: European Literature] 2144 words

Although the primed group under pseudo-words took longer than the control group, this difference is not significant enough, based on their result ranges, to conclude that the participants perceived the primed message.

This is a familiar piece of music sung by Brooks and Dunn that is regularly heard at my favorite place, "Boot Scootin' Thursday" at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds. Many people believe that country music is just singers whining about their divorce, the death of their dog, etc. In reality, however, it is much more than that.
