The story begins from the description of the school life. Each Friday pupils must write a little composition where they could comment events, occurred in school, criticized their teachers, headmaster; they could express their dissatisfaction about any subject and other. The headmaster considered it as an advantage, because in such way teachers had to know what want the pupils and they could to know each other better.

...Дія роману відбувається в 1915-1918 рр.. на італо-австрійському фронті. Американець Фредерік Генрі - лейтенант санітарних військ італійської армії (італійської - тому що США ще не вступили у війну, а Генрі пішов добровольцем). Перед наступом у містечку на плавнях, де стоять санітарні частини, - затишшя. Офіцери проводять час хто як вміє - п'ють, грають у більярд, ходять в публічний будинок і вганяють у фарбу полкового священика, обговорюючи при ньому різні інтимні речі. У розташований по сусідству англійська госпіталь приїжджає молода медсестра Кетрін Барклі, у якої у Франції загинув наречений. Вона шкодує, що не вийшла за нього заміж раніше, не подарувала йому хоч трохи щастя. За військам проноситься слух, що треба чекати швидкого настання. Треба терміново розбити перев'язувальний пункт для поранених. Австрійські частини знаходяться близько від італійців - на іншій стороні річки. Генрі скрашує напруга очікування залицянням за Кетрін, хоча його бентежать деякі дивацтва її поведінки. Спочатку після спроби її поцілувати він отримує ляпаса, потім дівчина сама цілує його, схвильовано питаючи, чи завжди він буде добрий до неї. Генрі не виключає, що вона злегка божевільна, але дівчина дуже гарна, і зустрічатися з нею краще, ніж проводити вечори в офіцерському публічному домі. На чергове побачення Генрі приходить грунтовно п'яним і до того ж сильно спізнюється - втім, побачення не відбудеться: Кетрін не зовсім здорова. Несподівано лейтенант відчуває себе незвично самотнім, на......

Chivalrous Ideal and Courtly Love in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

...The Chivalrous Ideal and Courtly love in Medieval England Dobrea Andrada-Cristina Anul III Engleză-Japoneză As contoured by the pages of time and history, each and every Era of our evolutionary process has offered the next one the privilege of witnessing a fascinating world, jewelled in magnificent ideals and a specific behaviour, beautiful even in its flaws. Among these, a haunting and mesmerizing Era captures the thought of literary critics – the Medieval Period. A period marked by powerful beliefs, conflict and self-knowledge, and inhabited by a spirit torn between Christianity and paganism, between virtue and sin, between light and utter darkness. An Era portraying a country trying to adapt to drastic changes brought on by the Norman Conquest of 1066, a country fighting to establish its own history in order to gain independence. A Period of knights and ladies, of valour and good faith, which gives life to some of the highest ideals mankind has ever known. It has introduced us to concepts such as chivalry and courtly love, pure expressions of spiritual essence. Of these ideals poets and authors wrote with lively passion, embroidering them in poems such as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, or The Wife of Bath. Although its poet remains unknown, the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight remains instilled in our minds as one of the prime examples of chivalry, Gawain representing the chivalrous ideal of the period. His story begins at New Year, in a court......

Sir Rupert

...Oral Presentation on Sir Rupert ‘King Swallow’ Philo By Shenez Hall Sir Rupert Philo known to many as ‘King Swallow’ was born on the 14th February, 1942 in the village of Willikies situated in the Parish of St. Phillip right here in this beautiful nation of Antigua. From birth he was destined to be a singer. Nurtured by church and encouraged by friends, He began competing in the calypso art form, which is and will always be an important part of our ancestral heritage, in 1961. One by one his songs became great hits as he brought music, song and dance to Antigua and even further the Caribbean by relying upon a calypso that lives on today. Swallow’s philosophical and enlightened outlook was expressed in One Love One Destiny, Dawn of a New Day, Man To Man, We Marching and a plethora of other songs which were written by him. He was as good a writer as he was a thinker and singer. Swallow’s calypso also broke through a barrier by making calypso conquerable . He loved the calypso art form and he mastered it. Not surprisingly, he penned other calypsos that were intended solely to entertain and to enable dancing.  He also manifested strong messages in his songs including the unfairness of mistreatment as well as historical messages. He was able to connect on a deep and somewhat emotional level through his music to the many listeners. In multiple ways, Swallow created appeal for his music by moving it across the spectrum, capturing thoughtfulness and playfulness in their......

To Sir with Love Summary

...In the dining hall, Mr. Braithwaite observes the students having dinner. It is a very organized affair, with the students seated in groups of eight. Two students are assigned to be the servers for the day, and perform their duties quickly and efficiently. When the meal is over, the students are allowed to use the hall for an informal mid-day dance session, and Mr. Braithwaite, who passes through the dancers with Miss Blanchard on his way to meet with the headmaster, is impressed with their skill and a little discomfitted with the earthy suggestiveness in their movements. Mr. Florian wastes no time in getting to the point when Mr. Braithwaite comes into his office. In answer to the headmaster's query about if he would like the job, Mr. Braithwaite responds, "I'll have a shot at it." Pleased, Mr. Florian outlines his policy for the school. He says that the majority of the students have had problems with authority in the past and might be classified as "difficult," but he believes that authority based on fear is bound to fail. Mr. Florian points out that the students, for the most part, come from an environment of poverty, and thus do not show much interest in abstract learning. The goal of the school is to establish an atmosphere of disciplined freedom in which the students will learn to speak up for themselves and become prepared to take their places in the working world. Mr. Braithwaite is at first irritated that Mr. Florian is making such a big issue of the students'......

...In this factsheet: The Facts on Tuberculosis Causes of Tuberculosis Symptoms and Complications of Tuberculosis Diagnosing Tuberculosis Treating and Preventing Tuberculosis The Facts on Tuberculosis Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most common infections in the world. About 2 billion people are infected with TB and nearly 3 million people are killed by it each year. In Canada, there are about 1,600 new cases of TB every year. The bacterium that causes TB is called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Someone can become infected and yet not have any symptoms of the active disease - this is called inactive TB. For someone with a healthy immune system, there's only a 10% lifetime chance of the TB bacteria reactivating and causing the active symptoms of TB. If the immune system has been weakened because of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) or other illnesses, the risk of moving from an inactive infection to an active symptomatic disease increases to 10% per year. Babies, preschool children, and seniors are also at greater risk due to weaker immune systems Causes of Tuberculosis Only people who have active TB infections can spread the TB bacteria. Coughing, sneezing, even talking can release the bacteria into the surrounding air, and people breathing this air can then become infected. This is more likely to happen if you're living in close quarters with someone who has TB or if a room isn't well ventilated. Once a person is infected, the bacteria will settle in......

To Sir, with Love

...Dr. Edward Ricardo Braithwaite's story, " To   Sir ,  with   love " is a story about a teacher who begins teaching at a reform school in London. The author bases the main plot of the story on his own life when he was a teacher in a rough section of London. The plot and characters are believable throughout the story, their actions show them as normal students who rebel for different reasons, much like students do in the United States today. Braithwaite kept the story believable and interesting. The students at the reform school had been kicked out of their other schools due to behavior. Most of the students were from broken homes. They either only had one parent or none at all.  The narration here is rather simple and going from the point of view of the teacher, the text is rather easy to understand and feel. The text can be logically divided into a two parts. The key in the first part of the text is rather dry and unemotional. From the very beginning of the extract we see the description of the Friday morning, the “pre-recess” period. The author gives the headmaster a nickname – Old man. To describe the principal’s program our narrator uses such metaphor as “pet scheme”. From his next words we see the description of this “scheme” as a program in which “Each child would review the events of his school week in his own words, in his own way; he was free to comment, to criticise, to agree or disagree, with any person, subject or method”. From his next words can be seen a little......

The IE verb-stem had the following structure: consonant-vowel-consonant. The sounding of the vowel in the root was dependent on the conditions of the stress falling upon it. This vowel-variation, termed Ablaut, was primarily a phonetic process in IE. In Germanic languages it was widely employed as a grammatical means.

Analysis to Sir, with Love

...Analysis of the text “To Sir, with love” By Eustace Braithwaite The text I’m going to comment on is entitled “To Sir, with love”, written by Eustace Braithwaite, a Guyanese novelist, writer, teacher and diplomat, best known for his stories of social conditions and racial discrimination. The passage under study is an excerpt from hid well-known novel “To Sir, with love”, that is an excellent autobiographical work, as it is based on his personal experience of teaching at a school in London’s East End. First, I would like to speak about the title of the text, because very often it can give you a hint about the content of the text. In this very case the first thought that came to my mind was that in the text may be a sir that receives a letter from somebody who loves him. After the first lecture of the text, I realized I wasn’t quite right, just partially right. Speaking about the structure of the title, I can say that it is expressed in a syntagm consisting of elements from human reality (sir) and from the spiritual one (love). The title has an expressive function, for it is realized by means of intention and emotionality. Also, it has a positive emotional status. The text tells the story of a teacher who came in a school in which every Friday morning the pupils were writing a Weekly Review – the headmaster’s pet scheme. The children were free to comment and criticize anything, as long as it was somehow linked with the school. The headmaster found advantages in......
