Imagine being a child and having your own father or mother hitting or burning your body, making sexual advances towards you, or just never being there for you when you need them. Becca, who decided to keep her last name anonymous, told about her experiences with being abused as a child in the Admit to Child Abuse web page. She told of her story by saying that she was "the victim of child sexual abuse and was abused for approximately 7 years by my father. Even at my age (22) now it is hard to put what happened to me into words" (Admit to Child Abuse). Well, more abuse like Becca's happens to children in today's society and they are victims of just those things. Many people may not realize this but child abuse has become prevalent in the United States throughout these past couple of years. Not only are children being physically abused but they are also being sexual abused, emotionally abused and neglected by people that are suppose to be the closest to them. There are many signs and effects of abuse, depending on the child that is being abused. Throughout this paper, each form of abuse will be addressed and those forms will be analyzed to find a proper treatment for these problems. Under law, a physically abused child means "a child less than 18 years of age whose parents responsible for the child care... inflicts physical injury by other than accidental means which causes substantial risk of death" (Safe Child Abuse). In other words, physical abuse is when a person physically touches a child and harms them in some way. This is something that is not being done by accident. It is also considered to be physical abuse when a caregiver, which does not have to be the parent, creates or allows certain situations to happen that would cause the child to be in danger. A physically abused child is easier to spot out then an emotionally or sexually abused child. This is because there are usually physical indicators, like bruises, cuts, and burns on the children's body that are being abused. Some more physical indicators would be bite marks, swelling on any parts of the body, and fractures in awkward places. Behavioral indicators from the child to look out for when determining if someone is being physically abused is if the child avoids physical contact with others, gives inconsistent versions about injuries that they have, does not seem to want to go home after school, seems frightened of parents and there are also many more.
The Midwest region of the United States consists of Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Indiana. A major source of the Midwest region of the United States is agriculture. The biggest issue the Midwest faces due to climate change is the effect of flooding on agriculture. Without agriculture the Midwest would not be what it is today. Over the years as flooding has increased planting and crop establishment has been delayed (US Global Change Research Program). Also flooding has changed the types of crops that can now be planted in the Midwest (Ben Chou). The extreme rainfalls and flooding have become more common over the past century and are expected to keep on increasing causing many harms for the Midwest including hurting agriculture (University of Michigan).
One major scene occurs moments before the bonfire of books. A series of events trigger recollections of Liesel’s past family which causes her to construe the reason why her family is separated. Liesel finally asks Hans, “Is my mother a communist?” (115). This question acts as Liesel’s confirmation of her thought that the Nazis has indeed taken her mother away just like how they took her father for being a communist. Liesel is perplexed because she knows her mother is not a bad person at all, yet, her personal experiences with her mother contradicts with the ideals she has been taught; her mother is a criminal for believing in a utopia different than Hitler’s. In the following scene, Liesel is slapped by Hans Hubermann right before he said, “You can say that in our house… But you never say it on the street, at school, at the BDM, never!” (115). It pained him to punish Liesel and he longs to embrace and comfort her, but he was forced to take drastic actions to protect Liesel from being taken away by the Gestapo. Hans understands that he is Liesel’s sole protector and he shall act as a shield along Liesel’s journey to find her truth. Hans’ actions acts as an example for Liesel to follow. He tells Liesel to never admit her thoughts in public but he tells her that she can in private when she is safe from prying eyes and ears. Hans himself is hiding his insurgent activities behind closed doors. He hides a Jew in his basement, fully knowing it could very well kill him and his
The power of words comfort and connect the characters. (Point) When Liesel is haunted by nightmares of her brother’s death, Hans delivers comfort by teaching her how to read, and playing his accordion to soothe her; this connects them. (Proof) ‘…she hauled the words in and breathed them out. A voice played the notes inside her. This, it said, is your accordion.’ (Pg. 381) (Comment) Death explains previously in the novel that Liesel also wants to learn how to play the accordion from Hans, but instead doesn’t ask because she thinks it’ll never sounds the way Hans plays it. Hans way of comforting people is by playing his accordion. This quote demonstrates how Liesel now ...
Fitzgerald, Milton, Rowling, and Shakespeare. Homer, Mitchell, Cervantes, and Byron. Though the word was only coined in 1714, the use of the antihero spans millennia, and it never really went out of fashion. Perhaps the reason for this can be found its definition: the antihero can be defined as any character having opposing ideals to those of the hero. While typical villains are usually excluded from this definition, it's a very broad definition, and it seems like it would be applicable to most stories; there's no story if there's only a hero, and there's not much of a story if there's only a hero and a villain. And it's true; it is applicable to most stories throughout history and present day. But strangely enough, most antiheroes are never classified as such. It seems that literary critics are almost universally reluctant to use the word antihero unless the book they're critiquing can be considered a literary masterpiece. Literary critics will be talking about an antihero in a relatively unknown book and will call this character a "bully-turned-hero," for example, when their epithet almost precisely fits the definition of a 'developing hero' – a character who starts off as a bad person and becomes a hero. All of this is to say that there are far more antiheroes that can be found in novels than we are aware of, as this 'developing hero' subcategory, like many others, are further subcategories of the three main branches of the antihero: the Byronic Hero, the Satanic Hero, and the antihero.

Atwood’s “Happy Endings” retells the same characters stories several times over, never deviating from clichéd gender roles while detailing the pursuit of love and life and a happy ending in the middle class. The predictability of each story and the actions each character carries out in response to specific events is an outline for how most of us carry on with our lives. We’re all looking for the house, the dog, the kids, the white picket fence, and we’d all like to die happy.

The ability to communicate effectively is an essential skill that plays a crucial role in the profession of nursing. Through ineffective communication, language and attitudes, the video entitled “effective communication in nursing” suggests that correct professional nursing practice positively affects health outcomes and patient care. The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council (ANMC) National Competency Standards for the Registered Nurse, under the domain of Collaborative and Therapeutic Care, closely relate to the issues presented in the clip. From the perspective of the nurse, patient and health outcomes, Competency 9.1, 9.2 and 9.4 are examined to support the importance of suitable nursing practice and patient-centred care.
Communication plays a crucial, central part to any and all nursing care. It is what develops a relationship between nurse and patient through both verbal and non-verbal interactions. Communication is included in the NMBA's competency standards because of its high level of importance to effective nursing care. Without therapeutic communication nurses would be unable to discover important and often crucial information about patients. Therefore effective interpersonal communication is what drives nursing care and decisions made about patients and their individual care plans. There are many different skills needed and available to nurses to communicate with their patients in the best way possible. In order to communicating appropriately with patients
Happy Endings is an oddly structured, metafictional story; a series of possible scenarios all leading the characters to the same ending. Atwood uses humour and practical wisdom to critique both romantic fiction and contemporary society, and to make the point that it is not the end that is important, it is the journey that truly matters in both life and writing.
