The haunting behavior
Flannery O’ Connor creates a fictional world in need of faith. In the book Wise Blood by Flannery O’Connor, Hazel (Haze) Motes is a young man that is driven to find Christ in the city of Taulkinham. Who I considerably believe him to be naïve person, because of his innocent, ignorant, and impulsive behavior. Flannery O’ Connor character is spiritual lean and hungry figures that reject lip services to Christianity and the insipid certainty of rationalism in the pursuit of salvation and portrays the moment of grace as an encounter with holiness and as a moment of epiphany and physical and emotional violence as an essential part of one’s transformation and growth. Hazel Motes is usually deprived economically, emotionally, or both and is dwell in a world which, in Flannery O’ Connor’s words, “the good is under construction”. Hazel is someone who dares to dream but shows no remorse towards the faith and belief that other people may have upon Jesus. Nobody seems to be impressed by the power of his words when Hazel Motes says, “Do you think I believe in Jesus?”… “Well I wouldn’t even if he existed, Even if he was on this train” (7). Hazel speaks to Mrs. Hitchcock in the train letting her know, he would never want to be redeemed; “If you’ve been redeemed, then I wouldn’t want to be” (7). His ignorant and stubbornly attitude is always against Jesus that even if he existed and had him in front of him, he still would refuse to believe. His ignorant attitude is always against god, but ironically shows remorse with the hope he might receive some kind of sign as he walks with stones in his shoes. Early in the story when Haze first arrives in Taulkinham he encounters a traffic patrolman who admonishes him for being ignorant of the meaning of red and green crossing light, “Red is to stop, green is to go- men and women, white folks and niggers, all go on…...

...Blood is very important to our bodies for many reasons; it carries oxygen to our vital organs, as well as important vitamins and minerals to other parts of the body. It also helps to regulate the PH balance as well as our bodies’ temperature. But most importantly, it carries white blood cells which are very important for our immune system. If we have problems with our blood supply, we can develop anemia or leukemia, and this may affect how our bodies function. Worse yet, if not getting it properly taken care of, it may result in a host of complications or even death. Plasma is a yellow liquid form portion of our blood that replaces easily thru out our bodies, consisting of water and proteins, and that helps control infections as well as bleeding. They are responsible for carrying oxygen thru out our body. Platelets are responsible for making our blood clot, which enables us from bleeding to death. Clotting when it dries out produces scabbing which aids in the healing process. Leukocytes or white blood cells are germ fighting cells, and there are two types: phagocytes (they help get rid of germs) and lymphocytes (which act as memory cells that can recall their last attackers). White blood cells can be found in places like the spleen, the bone marrow, and it has a sponge gel like consistency. Lily: Her poor eating habits are creating some serious health issue.

Wise at Heart

...Jonald Bondoc “Wise at Heart” In 1973, Alice Walker wrote a short story entitled “Everyday Use.” It is about the conflict between two siblings over who gets to keep an artifact of the family’s heritage. At the end of the story, it shows that the younger daughter, Maggie, gets to keep the quilts which the older daughter, Dee, wants most. Despite the fact that the older daughter’s education is superior to the younger daughter’s education, Maggie knows more about her heritage than Dee does. They may both have a liking for their heritage, but Maggie likes her heritage because it brings back memories of her loved ones, while Dee likes it because she wants to use her heritage for selfish reasons. Dee is more educated than her family but lacks the knowledge about her heritage’s true essence; she wants the artifacts of her heritage but only for her selfish reasons. She is the only one in her family that goes to school which means she is the only one in her family who receives a proper education. In the story, Dee visits her family from college because she wants to have something from them: the family’s heritage. Dee wants to have the butter churn top and dasher which were made by her uncle, and she also wants the quilts that were made by her Grandma Dee, which contains pieces of Dee’s grandparents’ and great grandfather’s clothes. What is intriguing about Dee’s action is that she never likes her heritage, and it is even mentioned in the story that Dee changes her name to Wangero...

Wise Children

...How does Carters presentation of acting and performance affect your interpretation of the novel? Angela Carter presents acting and performance in Wise Children in a very theatrical, carnivalesque way. The carnivalesque, in terms of the novel and performance, is shown partly through the several links to Shakespeare’s plays and through the main motto of the novel ‘what a joy it is to dance and sing’. The novel is structured in five parts, with a first person retrospective narrative, in the same way a Shakespeare play is structured into five acts. The Hazard and Chance families in the novel, including Dora and Nora’s ‘legitimate’ and ‘famous Shakespearian actor of a father,’ Melchior, are all performers. The appearance of twins is a particular link to Shakespeare where this is a common element. This also links to the twins in the Shakespeare play ‘twelfth night’ where Viola dresses as her bother Sebastian producing confusion and comedy for the viewer. This display of deception links to when Dora asks Nora for Nora’s boyfriend for the night and they pretend to be each other and deceive him into thinking he is with Nora. Indeed, deception is a common theme throughout performance: Melchior deceives nearly everyone into thinking that he’s a nice man who’s ‘Our greatest living Shakespearian’ when really, underneath the performance he puts on, he’s really the ‘Prince of players’ and doesn’t really care about his own daughters, only that he’s centre stage. . Dora’s narration makes......

They eventually had eight children, five boys and three girls. She was born in Cadiz, Ohio, however when she was two they moved to Wheeling, West Virginia. Her father Eli worked in the family trade of bricklaying. Her mother was very patriotic and became involved with the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization which supported the veterans of the Civil War, even serving as a state and a national president for a time. Her parents were staunchly Protestant and Rhoda grew up in the First Christian Church. There was a definite anti-Catholic bias in the family and among their friends. Rhoda often heard unkind remarks about Catholics and the Catholic Church. Nevertheless, she did have a few Catholic friends. Incidentally, when she was sixteen, Rhoda had a small encounter with Catholicism. While she was in Wheeling Hospital for an appendicitis operation, she received a visit from a Catholic Sister who gave her a St. Benedict medal. Rhoda explained to Sister that because of her parents dislike for the Catholic Church she would never be allowed to wear it, so Sister put the small medal in Rhoda's locket. Deeply touched by the Sisters kindness, Rhoda kept that hidden medal for the rest of her life. Rhoda married Ernest Wissmar, a young widower from Canton, Ohio, in November of 1915......

Blood

...May 5, 2015 Anatomy and Physiology Tell Me About Blood 1. A lower than normal hermatocrit means that a person is anemic. You may have heard your parents say, ‘I think my blood is low”. 2. Lymphopoiesis is the development of lymphocytes, which are which blood cells. Erythropoiesis is the development of erythrocytes, which are red blood cells. Myelopoiesis is the development of myelocytes, which are young blood cells. Granulopoiesis is the haematopoiesis of grandulocytes, which is also a white blood cell, but it is in the cytoplasm. Megakaryocytopoiesis is haematopoiesis of megakaryocytes, which are responsible for the production of blood platelets. 3. Erythropoiesis is the production of red blood cells. The factor that speed up and slow down erythropoiesis is when the kidneys release a factor that changes a blood protein to erythropoietin. This hormone targets the bone marrow where immature precursor cells are induced to synthesize large amounts of hemoglobin, the oxygen protein of red blood cells. Erythroblasts become reticyclocytes, immature red blood cells released into the blood stream where they mature into erythrocytes, full-fledged red blood cells, in one or two days. 4. Nothing negative will happen if a person who is blood type B is given a transfusion of the blood type O because blood type O is the universal donor and can be given to any blood type. 5.

Wise Advice

...Wise Advice Would you have liked to receive advice from previous students of a particular class that you were planning to take? We have all been new students at some point in our lives, and we know how overwhelming it can be. When students sign up for English 92 with Mr. Chapa, they most likely aren’t aware of what they signed up for. However, feeling overwhelmed so early into the semester isn’t the way to start. There are useful resources available for anyone who wants to know about courses and professors. One of many useful resources is an online website that consists of previous students stating reviews and comments about courses and professors, but the website doesn’t offer sufficient advice. I have several pieces of advice for incoming English 92 students to be able to succeed in the course. The first piece of advice for incoming English 92 students is to practice the concept that is taught. By practicing the new concepts, student will be able to develop useful skills needed throughout the semester, as well as for future college writing classes. Many students will begin the course with bad writing habits, but in English 92 they will have to let go of their bad habits to be able to replace them with good habits. The most important part of learning for English 92 will not be done in class; rather it’s done outside of class. At home or at a library the student will slowly begin to develop proper writing skills. Mr. Chapa is not a professor that will check on......

Blood

...The Rh factor (ie, Rhesus factor) is a red blood cell surface antigen that was named after the monkeys in which it was first discovered. Rh incompatibility, also known as Rh disease, is a condition that occurs when a woman with Rh-negative blood type is exposed to Rh-positive blood cells, leading to the development of Rh antibodies. Rh incompatibility can occur by 2 main mechanisms. The most common type occurs when an Rh-negative pregnant mother is exposed to Rh-positive fetal red blood cells secondary to fetomaternal hemorrhage during the course of pregnancy from spontaneous or induced abortion, trauma,[1] invasive obstetric procedures, or normal delivery. Rh incompatibility can also occur when an Rh-negative female receives an Rh-positive blood transfusion. In part, this is the reason that blood banks prefer using blood type "O negative" or "type O, Rh negative," as the universal donor type in emergency situations when there is no time to type and crossmatch blood. The most common cause of Rh incompatibility is exposure from an Rh-negative mother by Rh-positive fetal blood during pregnancy or delivery. As a consequence, blood from the fetal circulation may leak into the maternal circulation, and, after a significant exposure, sensitization occurs leading to maternal antibody production against the foreign Rh antigen. Once produced, maternal Rh immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies may cross freely from the placenta to the fetal circulation, where they form antigen-antibody......

...Wise Judgment Scenario Psy 220 Wise Judgment Scenario I chose the scenario, “A teenage girl is “in love” with her 17-year-old boyfriend. He is encouraging her to have sex with him saying that he will make sure they only have “protected” sex.” I decided to choose this scenario because I have grown up in a generation where this situation is very common and many teenage girls do not know how to react to this. Sometimes it can be hard to use wise judgment but it’s not impossible. The first way would be to take a step back and recognize the situation before it gets out of hand. For instance the 17 year old girl has to recognize that the boy is maybe becoming too pushy about the situation by saying, “they will only have protected sex.” The problem here is that he is trying to persuade her and change her thoughts on the situation by saying it will be safe. By realizing this problem she will able to sit down and actually think about the situation instead of falling to pressure and having sex. She will also be able to realize that what he’s doing is wrong and maybe even be able to sit down and talk to him about everything. Another wise judgment would be to define each problem and decide which ones are solving. The problems in this situation are number one he is encouraging her to have sex. She apparently is having a problem with that or he wouldn’t have to encourage her to do anything. This problem would be easy to solve by telling him that she is maybe not......

Wise Blood

...Flannery O'Connor was born and raised in Savannah, Georgia. After her father died of lupus erythematosus, a rare and fatal autoimmune disease, she and her mother lived alone. She received a general education at Georgia State College for Women and then continued to study creative writing at the University of Iowa. After receiving an M.F.A. degree in 1947, Flannery spent time in an artists' colony in Saratoga Springs, New York, and then with friends in Connecticut. She finished writing Wise Blood in 1950. Later that year, Flannery developed the same disease that had ended her father's life. Though crippled by lupus, Flannery was able to enjoy a modest lifestyle on her mother's ancestral farm, raising peacocks and writing. Her short stories are collected in A Good Man is Hard to Find, and Other Stories (1955), Everything That Rises Must Converge (1965), and Flannery O'Connor: The Complete Stories published posthumously in 1971. Her only other novel was The Violent Bear it Away (1960). Flannery O'Connor was a devout Catholic. She approached her work as a novelist and short story writer with a realistic understanding of her audience. The society around her had separated physical fact from spiritual reality and was left without any ground for belief. As Flannery wrote of spiritual experiences, she was careful not to "approach the divine directly," but rather to "penetrate the natural human world as it is." (O'Connor 68) She had a keen ear for common speech and used her......

...Running head: WISE JUDGEMENT Wise Judgement Crystal Davila ENG 106 Survey of Literary Masterpieces University of Phoenix Daphne Matthews May 7, 2012 Wise Judgment There is this teenage girl Michelle who states that she is “in love” with her 17-year-old boyfriend. Her boyfriend is encouraging her to have sex with him saying that he will make sure they only have “protected” sex. The questions that come to my mind is what exactly is protected sex and how does she know she really is in love. At this age, do young adults really understand the true meaning behind love? There are five components of wise judgment and they can be applied to this scenario to understand what is happening and what can be done to help her understand how serious this situation can be. The first component to wise judgment is factual knowledge about matter of life. In this situation, does Michelle really understand what is at steak? This is similar to The Death of Ivan Ilyich when he states “What is the right thing?“ (Tolstoy, 2243). If not she should understand that correct information about protected sex. Even if someone has protected sex does not mean they are one hundred percent safe. Everything that is available for protective sex has warnings printed on them. Just because someone is in love does not mean they have to have sex. On the other hand, if Michelle was not ready and understood what can happen if she does give in to having sex with her boyfriend then she......
