First response paper

The photograph titled the black and white kiss can be analyzed usingthe two different messages that are described by Barthes. Barthesdifferentiated photographs from pictures by saying that pictures arenot altered and they do not have texts to describe them. Forinstance, the photograph of a person is simply that person. Barthesstated that the message from the picture is normally clear andeveryone can easily get meaning from it by just looking at thephotograph. Barthes states that the photograph and the object that isrepresents cannot be separated and therefore there is message codebetween the two (Barthes and Stephen 18). In other words, the partsof the photograph cannot be considered as signs with coded message. Aphotograph is a perfect analogon of the object. Therefore, the mainmessage in a photograph is denoted. However, Barthes has identifiedthat photographs have a second message, the connoted.

The photograph in question can clearly be identified as of a manwearing black clothes kissing a lady with white clothes. It is clearthat theirs is a deep kiss and it is in an open space in the middleof numerous buildings. There are numerous other people in thephotograph. Some of the people seem to be surprised by the kissingand are looking at the two people surprisingly. Buildings can be seenin the background which indicate that the photograph was taken in atown setting or an urban setting. Although the faces of the twopeople kissing are not cleared, it is evident that the photograph isa perfect reflection of the objects. An impartial observer willeasily tell that the two people are a male ad a female. Thephotograph is in black and white mode. This implies that the colorsof the clothes might be different from the colors in the photograph.

The connoted message in the photograph can be assessed in terms ofthe setting, background, style and the pose. It is, however, worthnoting that the connoted message does not in any way represent themessage or the meaning of the photograph (Barthes and Stephen 22).More often than not, there are some things that are edited in orderto have a connoted message. The pose by the people kissing in thepicture has a connoted message. It is clear that the people areleaning and this is an indication that these people are in love.Additionally, the public display of a passionate kiss in the middleof the city is indicative of the love the two having. The appearanceof the photograph is also notable. The focus of the photographer wason the two people kissing since they appear closer than any otherobject in the photograph. All other objects in the photograph seem tobe behind the two lovers.

The background of the photograph can also be used as a connotedmessage. The background of the photograph comprises of numerouspeople and buildings who appear to be congested. This implies thatthe photographer created space for the photograph. This implies thefocus that the photograph has. It is not easy to focus on only twopeople in a busy town comprising of numerous people and buildings.The setting of the photograph is in an urban center. Thephotographer chose the style of black and white in order to make thephotograph simple and easy to understand. It is clear that thephotograph does not have numerous colors and this makes it simple andeasy to understand. Additionally, the photographer used varying sizesof the objects in the photograph. When one looks keenly, it isevident that the two people kissing appear bigger than the rest ofthe objects. This is aimed at having a central focus on the objectsthat the photographer wants the audience to see.

Another aspect that appears clear in the picture is the uniform wornby the man. It appears that the uniform is that of a navy. It isevident that the kiss is that of a reunion. Looking at the photographfrom a neutral view, it is easier to tell that the two have not beentogether for a long and their embrace is that of a reunion.Additionally, the people surrounding the couple are celebrating. Thisis an indication of the appreciation that the people have for thecouple.

In conclusion, Barthes analysis for the photography is special andapplicable. It is in no doubt that the photography is an indicationand a representative of the object. There is no way a photograph canbe interpreted differently. It is, however, worth noting that thereare software that can be used to change aspects such as resolutionand the contrast hence making changes to the photograph.

The two messages described for a photograph by Barthes are clearlyidentified in this photograph. It is, however, evident that thedenoted message is clear in a photograph than in other forms of artsuch as drawings.

CurrentEvent Assignment – Global Warming

The paper willfocus on two articles that oppose the relevance and scientific proofabout Global Warming. These articles, &quotGlobal Warming is a Hoax&quot(http://www.newsmax.com/surveys/GlobalWarmingHoax/Is-Global-Warming-a-Hoax-/id/174/kw/default/?dkt_nbr=sh3tbvym)and &quotThe False Alert of Global Warming&quot(http://www.newsmax.com/surveys/GlobalWarmingHoax/Is-Global-Warming-a-Hoax-/id/174/kw/default/?dkt_nbr=sh3tbvym)

The first article disregards Global Warming bandwagon every time lonepolar bear is floating or when heat waves emerge. The articlediscusses how the idea of Global Warming has been weakened followingthe argument that the ice cap in North Polar continues to increase insize (Newsmax.com 3). Some of the scientists have also disregardedthis issue as a sham through leaked exchange of emails between them.

The secondarticle questions the facts backing up the issue of global warming.In the early 1980s, the article shade light on the environmentalistsissuing a warning about the cooling trend recorded in Polar Regions(Bethell 4). Today, the article argues that the facts are based ontemperature measurements of cooling preceded by warming terming theissue as a false alert in today`s world.

A close look atthe first article shows shortcomings regarding Global Warming. Forexample, McCutcheon (23) argues that the issue is a sham merelybecause of leaked emails by the scientists and the idea of heat wavesrecorded now and then. A look at the second article shows biases inits argument over the issue of global warming. Scientists andenvironmentalist argue that the emissions of gases over the last 25years are debatable (Tomecek 9). Here, the article fails to engagecritical thinking that results in an increase of gases.

My thoughts onthe topic of Global Warming on logical fallacies and criticalthinking strategies are based on critical reasoning aboutdisregarding Global Warming alarmists who fail to look at the facts,which include rising ocean levels and receding snow and ice. Mythoughts on logical fallacies over the issue of Global Warming renderthe whole idea of it being a sham and as an invalid argument. Oncritical thinking, Global Warming, according to my thoughts, is not asham, and neither is it a false alert in today`s world. GlobalWarming is a global issue, which demands exceptional attention.

My opinion onGlobal Warming is that it is true based on the evidence provided byscientists. For example, the average temperature recorded on Earthindicates that it has been growing over the last two decadesfollowing an increase in greenhouse gases. Again, my opinion is basedon the fact that the last few decades have seen an increase in humanactivities, which have destroyed the environment and release gasesinto the atmosphere. My opinion is not influenced by the logicalfallacies and critical thinking strategies discussed above on theissue of Global Warming.

To clarify theissue of Global Warming, scientific research that would help isgreening transportation. This scientific research will help improvethe mode of transport efficiency, embracing low-carbon fuel use,applying smart growth through reducing the number of miles intransport. Tomecek (12) cautioned that emission gases in the energysector worsen the issue. Additionally, emission from fossil fuelswill be reduced substantially when this scientific research isemphasized globally. The research is based on sustainable transport,and is measured on the systems put in place. The systems are coupledwith both short-term and long-term activity targeted at havingalternatives to energy use.

Community Resource Project – Final Reflection

Over the span ofclose to a month, my first meeting with the club being on 30thJanuary 2016 and with the last one taking place on a Saturday, 20thFebruary, exciting things has happened. First, getting acquitted withthe club members was a bit difficult considering I joined it after ithad already been formed. However, I was first introduced to othermembers by the secretary. Secondly, the first few meetings afterintroductions were followed by prayers, reading of the previousmeetings, and then going directly to the order of the day.

At first, Ifelt elated at joining a new club, new members, and getting to meetdifferent people whom I was informed are from Saudi Arabia and theUnited States. Looking back at all the meetings, I had a mixedreactions and feelings over the place and what was carried out. Forexample, I was anxious at first, but excitement took over once I gotused to the group. Some of the interesting things I noticed in themeetings were the how the location of the meeting that was adjacentto the Green mall, the enthusiasm of the group leader, vibrantdiscussions from the members, and the dynamism of ideas shot from allcorners of the meeting.

Reflecting onthe meetings I have attended, I learnt about how I would integrate mypersonal and professional life to get best out of me. I learnt how tointeract with people, which has transformed me and my personality forthe better. I learnt that my hidden leadership qualities would enableme to handle and lead bigger forums. These experiences would allow meto control future participants in a better way, which in turn wouldimprove my facilitating abilities in a face-to-face scenario. Havinglearnt about my personality and leadership skills, what I would dodifferently in the future is have the capacity to interact and askthe right questions at the right time. This way, I will be in abetter position to learn how to elicit deeper meaningful responsesfrom the group members for better forums.

A Profile Feature Article forAlameer

Thereis always what motivates any human being in life and makes anindividual to assume certain life style , standard of living orprofession. In the tender age of Alameer, he had great desire andanticipation to know what is it that motivate, drives or empowers many people to seek expertise knowledge, to go to school locally, oreven abroad to further their studies. Alameer in his dream tobecoming an engineer made him to be curious to know what it all takesto become a competent employee in the job market.

Afterworking in the oil field for several years, Alameercomes to the United States to further his studies, really eager todisapprove his workmates back home who treated him in a way that toldhim to pull up his socks. “I have always treated fellow workmatesthe way I wanted to be treated by anyone”, he says”. “Contraryto my expectation, I have always been treated as lesser, not up tothe standard and below average, despite my high performance in myline of duty”.

Suchmere treatment and intimidation from his workmates and neighboursmade him make the decision to further his engineering career. Alameersettles in another country with his family that he knows nobody, andnobody knows him with the purpose of pursuing his career. To him,this is a life marking mission and it is like no other. “To succeedin this matter, I have to be passionate, focused and extrahardworking, he points out. Expensive as it is, He is more than readyto settle down in books, and get the knowledge once and for good. Tohim, the sky is the lower limit and nothing will stand in his way,neither resources, hardship of any kind or the distance from home.The man has admirable traits all the same. It is the sort of thepersonal life experience that endears this man to people from allwalks of life, neighbors and friends alike. Alameer admits that hehas come to know and make many friends in the United States over avery short of time of his study. One can describe him as not onlyhardworking but one who is determined, resolute and selfless.

“Ithas always been good to appreciate the fact that in the work place,all does not end at receiving the salary”, he says”. “Fullsatisfaction in the work place goes beyond that as there are otherkey things needed like respect from the fellow workers”.Identifying the university was big win for him. “It is a dream cometrue and I was ready to overcome with great joy when I spotted theschool”, says the father of one daughter” West VirginiaUniversity is one of the world’s leading institution in the worldof science.Working among engineers in the oil companies was really giving themhectic time .

Asit is explained, his coming to the United States to seek furtherstudies was triggered by the work place colleagues that look at himas less superior. Reason, not because he was not delivering in hisline of duty but because they felt that he was not equal to them whenit comes to the professional experience. To these professionals, hehas to drive a point home .He will not only carry a degree, but onefrom the United States. This will be one of the most fulfillingthings in his life. Alameer believes that by the time he is goingback home, it will not be business as usual.

Comingto the United States to study mechanical engineering is the wisestdecision he ever made. Saudi Arabia is one of the leading oilproducing nations. This is a value addition issue. Taking this courseprepares him not only for efficiency in his work places but also puthim at per with his work mates. He qualifies for promotions just likethem, and if one has to hold the degree to be respected, then he willcommands the respect that he deserves. A former classmate sited that,this is an all round man. Studying in Virginia gave him a chance tointeract with people from different backgrounds, different culturesfrom the Arabic and Islamic home country. One cannot tell of thedifference between this man and others apart from the mother tongueascent.

Nevertheless,for Alameer coming to study in the United States comes with manychallenges. First is the cost factor. The scholar is not onlyexpected to pay the school fees but the maintenance of the wholefamily in the United States remains entirely his responsibility. Lifein the United States is quite hard for a student. Besides that, thereare some social matters that he has to deal with. Settling in a newenvironment was not an easy thing for Alameer but he remained focusedin his goal.

Makingnew friends for Alameer with people he can trust or even trust himtook time. Identifying the people he share some cultural values likereligion does not came by, so easy. The student is left with verylittle time to interact with the family. “It is normally hard tosee how my daughter misses me”, as I look at her helplessly”,”I will leave the house very early when she is asleep and come backlate just to find her deep asleep”. The only time he has is devotedto completing the assignment.” It is not easy as he has to copewith very tight schedule that I was not used to, but I am determinedto fight to the end, says Alameer the mechanical engineering student

Despiteall these challenges, there is one thing that gives this manstrength- his family. Amidst all these waves, the wife offers thebest moral support, something that tells him that he is not alone,not fighting alone or doing it in vain. The wife has never forgottenthat he is doing all these for the present and future common good forthe family.

Inconclusion, Alameer had to go back home which is located in SaudiArabia after achieving his academic goal. As the saying goes thatEast or West home is always the best, Alameer was now ready to goback home show himself a workman approved, one that does not need tobe despised, or questions that he does not have a mechanicalengineering. This time with much confident to face everybody and tobring the broad knowledge that he has gathered from the University tothe oil field. “From then hence forth, University of Virginiaremained to be a home away from home because of the competentknowledge that he gained and enabled him to be outstanding in theeconomic system of his country”, he points out”.

Patchesthe Horse

Patchesis a super intelligent horse born and bred on a ranch in NorthernFlorida. He has the instincts like of a human being. Herbert Thompsonthe owner had observed patches for some time and had noted that hewas different from the other horses. He always wanted to accompanythe owner for a ride in his vehicle that prompted him to modify thevehicle to accommodate him. Thompson trained Patch how to sit on themodified space on his vehicle, where he observed that Patches lovedto learn new things.

Patchesis taken for a ride and enjoys eating cheese burger, where he has theability to hear the conversation from George only that he cannot beable to respond verbally on it. The horse would attract the attentionof everyone who would see him ride on the vehicle. He would learn howto stay with his owner in the living room performing some chores likepulling a beer from a fridge for Thompson after being ordered to.Likewise, he could help out on picking up the phone and would mumbleover the phone though he cannot speak.

Patcheswould sleep on the bed and live in the house like any human being. Hehad leant how to perfectly interact with the human kind. His talentsare amazing and he would learn and take in most of the things that hewould be taught. Thompson loved Patches talent and would love totrain him new to perform different tasks.

Spanish political history

The coup attempt in Spain which happened on the 23rdFebruary 1981 was informed or caused by tensions and discontentamongst a section of the army which felt that the country was notready to transition to democracy from the authoritarian rule ofFrancisco Franco (Newton, Michael andPeter 154). Francisco was a dictator whoauthoritarian form of leadership came to an end five years before thecoup attempt. His death marked the transition of the country from anauthoritarian form of leadership to a democratic form of leadership.Before the coup in 1981, Spain was just but a young democracy thatwas struggling to establish democratic institutions, as well asinstalling a new democratically elected prime minister (Ávila105). The government that was in placewas viewed as having been democratically elected. In fact, the coupoccurred when congress was preparing to vote for the new primeminister. It is clear from research that the democracy of the countryhad not taken root and the transition from authoritarian rule todemocracy was proving to be hard and violent.

According to the film and various information sources such as booksand online articles, the democracy of Spain between 1975 and 1981 wasunder transition. This implies that it was extremely weak and thepossibility of returning to the authoritarian rule was easy. It isclear that majority of the people and especially the army and thosein leadership were still stack in the past and were wondering how thecountry would have law and order without authoritarian leadership.

The coup was organized and conspired by the Guardia Group and theywere led by Antonio Tejero. Tejero was accompanied by Major RicardoSaenz Ynestrillas, with whom they were the major conspirators of thecoup. It is essential to note that the group believed that Tejero wasreceiving orders from the King Juan Carlos and therefore they thoughtthey were acting on behalf of the king who was the son of the formerdictator Francisco. Tejero was leading an army of 200 soldiers whohad submachine guns (Ávila95). The film has actually pointed tothe involvement of the king in the coup and asserts that thegovernment was indeed behind the coup. This is due to the fact thatthe king seemed apologetic to the army for conducting the coup.Additionally, the king seemed to be denouncing his involvement in thecoup which was a testament that he was initially involved (Roy 38).Many critics have cited the involvement of the government in thecoup. Another conspirator of the coup was&nbspJaimeMilans Del Bosch.Bosch was tasked with the responsibility of declaring a state ofemergency in the country and also requesting the other army leadersto join in the coup. It is essential to note that the king onlyordered for the stop of the coup 17 hours later the congress was heldhostage by the Guardia group (Ávila112). It was considered that the coup wasalready over when the king declared his position. Some blame was alsodirected towards the then Prime Minister Adolfo Suarez who wasconsidered as a weak leader. Suarez had failed to involve themilitary and address their concerns regarding maintenance of law,discipline and order in the country under democratic rule.

King Juan had a major role to play before,during and after the coup attempt by the Guardia group. King Juan wasthe heir from his father Dictator Francisco. Many people would havethought that king Juan would have gone ahead with the dictatorialform of leadership. However, Juan led the country through atransition to democracy. The close relationship between the King andthe leader of the Guardia group made many people think that he wasbehind the coup. The 200 soldiers under Antonio Tejero thought thattheir leader was acting on behalf of the king. This motivated thesoldiers who attacked the congress on 23rdFebruary 1981. From this perspective, it is clear that the king had arole to play towards the coup (Newton, Michael and Peter 109).Additionally, considering that his father was a dictator, there was afeeling that the king would not support any form of democracy inSpain and therefore the Guardia believed that he was behind the coup.However, when the king publicly disowned the coup attempt and orderthe military to maintain law and let the country be ruled by thedemocratically elected leaders, the perception and the role of theking in the coup changed. The king was responsible for ending theattempted coup by ordering the soldiers to maintain law and orderaccording the constitution (Newton, Michael and Peter 82).His public address to the nation hours after the congress was heldhostage led to the end of the attack. The king has been credited withthe growth of democracy in Spain today and for ending the coup.

There are numerous lessons that can be learntfrom the occurrences that occurred in Spain during the coup and evenafter the coup. The first lesson is that it is difficult for acountry under dictatorship to transition smoothly to a democracy.This transition is expected to be rough and sometimes it may turnviolent. There are people who hold the status quo and they are theones who revolt the new form of leadership (Conversi 54).The role of the military in a young democracy has also clearly beenbrought out. It is essential for every young democracy to involve themilitary in its operations and listen to their concerns. It is clearfrom the events and occurrences in Spain that the military hasabsolute power and the government must work hand in hand with themilitary to ensure that there is a smooth transition into democracy.

The events of February 23rd1981 in Spain will remain engraved in the hearts of the Spaniards formany years to come. This was a time when the democracy of the countrywas shaped. The fruits of that day are still evident today andSpaniards are now enjoying democracy. It has been established thattransitioning from an authoritarian rule to a democracy can be toughand sometimes violent. Authoritative leadership ensures that there isorder and discipline in a country. On the contrary, a democracy givespeople freedom of choice and therefore many dictators fear that ademocracy will lead a country into chaos. The issue of Spain was as aresult the dissatisfaction that the army had in the leadership ofSuarez (Ávila 233).They considered the prime minister as a weak leader and one wouldnever lead a nation. Additionally, the coup attempt was done at atime when the members of parliament were electing the new primeminister. This is an indication that the coup was timed to ensurethat there was no new democratic government in Spain.

Spanish political history

The coup attempt in Spain which happened on the 23rdFebruary 1981 was informed or caused by tensions and discontentamongst a section of the army which felt that the country was notready to transition to democracy from the authoritarian rule ofFrancisco Franco (Newton, Michael andPeter 154). Francisco was a dictator whoauthoritarian form of leadership came to an end five years before thecoup attempt. His death marked the transition of the country from anauthoritarian form of leadership to a democratic form of leadership.Before the coup in 1981, Spain was just but a young democracy thatwas struggling to establish democratic institutions, as well asinstalling a new democratically elected prime minister (Ávila105). The government that was in placewas viewed as having been democratically elected. In fact, the coupoccurred when congress was preparing to vote for the new primeminister. It is clear from research that the democracy of the countryhad not taken root and the transition from authoritarian rule todemocracy was proving to be hard and violent.

LegalResearch Problem

Under theCalifornia law, I may face legal liability to the Briyate family andthose whose property were damaged.

The CaliforniaCivil Code Section 1234 provides that no person, and for thisinstance a person holding a person and serving drinks, acting onsomething towards others, shall indirectly or directly, and knowinglyor unknowingly deface, damage, or destroy another person`s propertyfor interfering or intimidating free enjoyment or exercise, forexample, alcohol.

OtherCalifornia statutes also impose legal liability for businesses, whichserves alcohol, for example, the California Penal Code AB 2428. Thelaw states that a person or business that interferes with anotherperson`s freedom of enjoyment shall face preliminary injunction whoseviolation of this order is punishable under section 42277 of thepenal code.

As a matter offact, the California law is harsher towards those individuals thatserve alcohol to underage individuals. The law strictly prohibitsyoung persons under the age of 18 years to engage in drinking oralcohol, and anyone found selling them alcohol could face the lawunder the section of 1234 of the Civil Code.

In the case forthe California Supreme Court Case Skywalker v. Vader (2011) 57Cal.4th 1039, the Appellate Court moved swiftly to stop theaggression of what was to be conflicts and quarrels over freedom toconduct business. The court held that Vader would face liabilitycharges for damages.

Another Californian case, Jabba v. Solo (2010) 44 Cal.App.4th 539of the penal code 3525 held that the accused, about damages of thepersonal product, would face legal liability changes for refusing toallow freedom to own property, for instance, in the Jabba v. Solocase.

Determinationof liability draws several key questions, which must be answered,including to determine individuals` age before serving them drinks,the location of the party, business gathering, company get together,or at central business premises regulated by the state laws. Legalliability can only be determined after these questions are answered.

Whether anindividual is defined or not by law as a law abider, one can facelegal liability case without his or her being aware of his/heractions. Legal liability cuts across all scenarios that involvedsituations beyond a person`s control, for example, having parties onapartment premises.

Furthermore,the Supreme Court in the state of California accepted to review thelegal liability case of Howard v. Briyate family under theCalifornia Civil Code Section 1234. This means that private personsthat serve alcohol and charge admission fees that defray the cost ofthe alcohol would be held accountable. As a matter of fact, the hostserving alcohol parties to the guest would later cause damages, andwould be liable for that.

Therefore, the cause with the Briyate family over legal liabilitywould land me in trouble due to damages caused their family membersfor serving him alcohol.

PoeticTechniques employed to convey the Experience and Human Cost of War

AlfredTennyson`s poem &quotThe Charge of the Light Brigade,&quot focuseson war experiences, battles, and deaths of soldiers. The poemcelebrates the success of war despite the judgment error made by aperson that resulted in more than six hundred soldiers killed (Hedin25). The poem uses the kind of language that is understandable to bemilitary: soldiers, guns, cannon, gun scenes, and sabres, whichsuccessfully applies sound effects, imagery, and other poetictechniques. The paper, therefore, will consider poetic techniquesemployed in the poems to convey experiences and human cost of war intwo poems, Tennyson`s &quotThe Charge of the Light Brigade&quot andKomunyakaa`s &quotFacing it.&quot

In Tennyson`s&quotThe Charge of the Light Brigade,&quot some of the poetictechniques used include the repetition, imagery, personification,rhyming, symbolism, and allegory. The first imagery in the poem isthe valley of death, which haunts the entire poem. The Valleypresents the setting where the changes take place. According toDiYanni (21), the poet, Tennyson, uses the term &quotshadow ofdeath&quot severally, which becomes a kind of refrain in the earlystages of the poem. The imagery focuses the reader`s attention to thesoldiers` courage and their level of fearlessness.

Personification, as a poetic technique, is applied when human andanimal features are given to ideas like death and life, for examplein lines 24 and 46. This technique is important because it gives acharacter to death. In one of the lines, the poet even capitalizesthe word &quotdeath&quot as a way of emphasizing its importance.Others include the &quotmouth of hell,&quot and the &quotlightbrigade&quot (Tennyson 15). The poem uses Sabres as part of thesymbolism technique to refer to power and heroism. Others are theguns, cannons, and soldiers, which could also be a representation ofsomething crazy or noble about war.

The use of sound gives the poem highly placed sound effects. The useof alliteration, according to Tennyson (14), is applied in the poemto express the real sounds of war and battle, for example, as thebullet sounds are used in line 22. Again, the poem uses biblicalallusion, which enables the poet to have the freedom to express theimportance of the events.

On the other hand, &quotFacing it&quot as a poem is immediatelycandid and intimate. The poet, Komunyakaa, starts with &quotMy&quotas the first word, which immediately orients its reader to a morepersonal nature of a display of emotions, which he finds itdifficult. The poem is about war, and the poet is unapologetic aboutthe choice of words, which gives the poem life and a nostalgic feel(Komunyakaa &amp Shirley 9). One of the main poetic techniquesemployed in the poem is imagery. Komunyakaa uses moving descriptionsand graphics of the consequences of war. The imagery of the poem isquite intimate and frightening, as the reader is dragged by thespeaker in the heart of the Vietnam`s Memorial Veterans.

Again, what gives &quotFacing it&quot depth is the precise focus onthe use of detail, voice, and tone, which places all the crucialdevices. Komunyakaa &amp Shirley (12) noted that the title, &quotFacingit,&quot gives the poem the depth it deserves, by bringing out thefigurative meaning it deserves. One of the meanings is to face thewall. Other figurative means could be to face the demons of the dayswent by and the pain the speaker could be experiencing when hereturns. Examples of imagery in the poem are in lines 6 to 8, whenthe speaker says, &quotmy blurred reflection eyes/like the birds ofprey, the night`s profile slanted against the dawn&quot (Komunyakaa&amp Shirley 17).

The two poems are about war, but one of them better describes andconveys the experiences of the way. Tennyson`s &quotThe Charge ofthe Light Brigade,&quot is the poem which conveys these experiencesbetter than Komunyakaa`s &quotFacing it.&quot One of the reasons isbecause Tennyson`s poem takes a more intimate and personal poeticapproach (Hedin 13). The poem is a more close-up and personal, whichprovides its readers with an appeal to feeling the experiences ofwar.

The poem, &quotFacing it,&quot according to DiYanni (23), fails todescribe the war experiences the way &quotThe Change of the LightBrigade&quot since it appears to be withdrawn, slightly removed, andless poignant. Additionally, the poem &quotThe Charge of the LightBrigade&quot has a better choice of words. The words used betterdescribe the extent of the war with words such as cannons, guns,sabres, and soldiers all used. The tone is also that of brevity andsadness, which explains the reason for taking part in the war whilethe level of depression because of the many deaths experienced.

Komunyakaa`s &quotFacing it,&quot compared to Tennyson`s &quotTheCharge of the Light Brigade,&quot better conveys the level of humansuffering it involves. For instance, the speaker goes through a lossof identity, which reminds him of the pain when he stares at thememorial. The poem`s choice of words such as &quotcloudedreflection,&quot according to Komunyakaa &amp Shirley (19), remindshim (speaker) of the dark, painful past. He says &quotI turned, andI am inside the Vietnam`s memorial.&quot Here, it illustrates thepoem`s ability to demonstrate the level of human suffering he had toundergo following thousands of soldiers that had been killed.

Therole of any responsible government is to ensure that the rights aswell as freedom of all individuals are jealously guarded, thuspromoting social justice and fairness in all sectors of the economy.&nbspAlthough there have been numerous challenges, the US has beenable to attain this both at national and county levels, a factorwhich has helped the country remain global power house in varioussectors. This paper will keenly look at the current leaders ofHernando County in the state of Florida as well as their futurepolitical ambitions.

Itis notable that, the United States has 435 congressional districtswhich elect one representative to the house for a two year term.Richard Nugent a Republican represents the 11thdistrict of Florida in Hernando County. Bill Nelson, a democrat, isthe senior senator, while Marco Rubio is the junior senator with thenext election being 2016. Richard was previously a representative for5thcongressional district from 2011 to 2012, and he sits on differentcommittees such as house committee dealing with armed service, membersubcommittee on readiness and joint committee on printing amongothers. Some of the notable bills that he has sponsored include,Soldier Act, Student Debt Repayment Fairness Act, the Act onLieutenant Osvaldo Albarati Correctional officer Self-protectiondrafted in 2015, Veterans Eagle Park Pass Act, Justice and MentalHealth Collaboration Act of 2015, Congress Is Not A Career Act andNational Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015 among other bills.Nugent majorly sponsors bills touching on armed forces and nationalsecurity, crime and law enforcement, taxation, public lands andnatural resource, science, technology and communication. Further, heis known to be a keen reformer, especially when it comes to the issueof spending. For instance, he opposed the bail out which had beenoffered to Bush, the immediate former president of the US. He hasalso openly opposed the ObamaCare, as well as those legislationswhich aim to increase taxation resulting from global warminglegislations.

Rubio sits on various senate committees such assubcommittee on oceans, senate committee on commerce, science andtransportation among other committees. Senator Rubio sponsors billsthat major on health, taxation, international affairs, technology andcommunications, crime and law enforcement, economics and publicfinance among others. Some of his recent bills include the CubanImmigrant Work opportunity Act of 2016, Foreign Aid Transparency andAccountability Act of 2015.

SeniorSenator Clarence William Bill Nelson is Florida senator and a memberof Democratic Party in the United States. Born in September 29 1942in Miami Florida, he attended Yale University in 1965 and Universityof Virginia in 1968. He has previously worked as a representative for9thDistrict between1979 to 1982and 11thDistrict between1983 to 1990.The bills that the senator has sponsoredand co-sponsored give credence to the kind of personality he reallyholds. Nelson’s interests majors on health, international affairs,armed forces and national security, taxation, science, technology,communications, environmental protection, law and commerce. Some ofthese bills include, Lithium Battery and safety Act of 2016,Everglades for the Next Generation Act, Protecting American Jobs act,Emergency Citrus Disease Response Act, a resolution welcoming KingFelipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain, Caribbean Oil SpillIntervention, prevention and preparedness Act among other bills. Itis worth noting that, Nelson has been a keen supporter of programsaimed at space exploration. For instance, in 2010, he had proposedcommercial ventures to space among other space related proposals. Hehas also fought for the rights of the minority groups as supportingthe Don`t Ask, Don`t Tell Repeal Act in 2010. He also no longeropposes the same sex marriage, a factor which has strengthenedvarious communities living in Florida.

RichardLynn Scott is an American business man and the 45thGovernor of the State of Florida since 2011 on a Republican Partyticket. Scott served as a member of United States Navy beforestarting his career in business. He co-founded Columbia HospitalCorporation together with his business associates which he wouldlater resign as chief executive of a merger between the former andHospital Corporation due to the company business and Medicarebilling. The goals for the company were to reduce the cost of healthas it improves the care for patients in the hospitals across thecountry.Rick Scott current agendas involve taxation and jobs. He hasmanaged to cut taxes by 50 times and this made the revenues growtremendously turning the economy around.

Thegovernor is currently serving his second and final term having beenelected first term on January 4 2011 and his final term on January 62015. The congress works in two year sessions which are tied to theelection period. Senator Bill Nelson is on his final year and thusnot eligible for re-election. Senator Marco Rubio is on his firstsession and therefore is legible for re-election this year. RichardNugent is too on his second term in the congress and thus illegiblefor re-election this year in the house of congress.

Theleader I would support for re-election is Marco Rubio. Although heis currently seeking the seat of US president, I would openly supporthis bid for the senator seat should he seek re-election in 2016.First, he is a keen advocator of human rights in the US. Forinstance, since 2011, the senator has been in the forefront ofadvocating for the rights of human right abuses in countries such asCuba and other Latin American Countries where these vices arecurrently taking place (Carmichael1).Further, he is a part of the foreign relations committee in thesenate and this has impacted his views towards the voiceless acrossthe globe. He has also participated in tax reforms, thus improvingthe living conditions of US citizens. For instance, hisEconomicGrowth and Family Fairness Tax Planaims to lower taxes, thus creating a level playing field, andspecifically focusing on strengthening families and businesses(Carmichael1).He is also well known in tackling hard issues touching on education.For example, the senator has proposed the setting up of anindependent board that would accredit online courses as well as lookat the ability of workers to obtain academic certificates outside thetraditional education systems. This will go a long way in shaping theeducation system in the US, especially for those in the workingclass.

HealthCare in the United States

  1. In the United States, when it comes to improving health care, most discussions are about quality and costs. Health care is very costly in the United States compared to other developed countries. It is estimated at 50% to 200% per capita more. However, with higher costs in health care expenditure, it is ranked as low as 26th regarding life expectancy and also other quality indicators compared to other developed countries.

  2. The health care finance system is comprised of three parties, the first, second, and third parties. The first party is made up of the public. The system considers them the primary stakeholders as the ones consuming the health care services. The second party is the employees, and the third party is the health care professionals.

  3. Over the course of history, the patient-physician role has changed considerably. Many years back, the role depended entirely on the physicians to provide care for the patients. This role remained liked that for a while until there was a shift. Today, the responsibility is square between the two, the patient and the physician.

  4. The different stages in the natural history of a disease are a preclinical stage, clinical stage, the disease outcome. They are characterized by the disease onset, appearance of symptoms, and the start of therapy.

  5. Primary prevention in healthcare is aimed at preventing injury or disease before it occurs through prevention of exposure to hazards, disease causes, or injury. Examples include education about health and immunization against the diseases. Secondary prevention is targeted at reducing the disease impact or injury that has occurred already. Examples include regular examination and screening, and giving medical doses. Tertiary prevention is aimed at softening the impact or an injury or ongoing illness. Examples include stroke rehabilitation and vocational rehabilitation.

  6. The increased use of complementary and alternative healthcare affects insurance companies by increasing the insurance responsibilities. This is because complementary and alternative health care are viewed to be non-standard regarding replacing the insurance services. Insurance companies are therefore tasked with giving more coverage.

  7. Major stakeholders in healthcare include physicians, patients, pharmaceutical firms, health care insurance firms, and the government. The identified stakeholders are influential in the sense that they are all involved in the activities and entities of the healthcare system and its operations.

  8. The older, seriously ill Americans suffer a crucial challenge to receive health care because of the inadequate health care services and cover in the country that does not entirely met the demands of ever increasing the population of these people. Again, there are also few health care providers and financial limitations to cater for all.

  9. The Affordable Care Act tries to prevent conflicts of interest by providing access to quality and reliable medical care while ensuring the physicians works under advanced programs to minimize costs. The physicians are offered insurance subsidies, while the patients are protected, and, therefore, minimal conflicts of interest.

  10. Problematic health indicators in the United States include high health care costs, increasing perinatal health difficulties, increasing health complications, and increased the number of patients. These indicators show the deteriorating quality of health in the country. Additionally, these health indicators include insufficient sleep recorded by most Americans and is estimated that more than 40 million Americans have a problem with sleep and sleeping patterns.
