Barney Response

The story, written by Will Stanton born October 16 1918 american jokester  who wrote many short story’s in his time of existence but before the land of time with his writing he was a flight officer. After the war he decided to become a writer.

The beginning of the story was all about trust and relation building and starting to know the character barney the tone and format of the story is about a little help less rat that had a vision that could come to life. The format of the story is in a diary, The poison container was over turned and a trail of powder led to Barney’s dish. August 30th, Barney and the scientist were all alone. And he did not condone who tried to poison barney. The man believed  the attempt was someone under the influence of alcohol and it was a crappy job.

The end of the story is quiet funny and really unrealistic how such a small rat could kill a human being, Barney’s way of thinking he uses to his advantage and his communication skills. But when a human gets attached to their animal things can happen. If you had a pet dog for so long like 10 years you will most likely get attached and when he is gone  a part of you leaves within your mind and body. In the story the scientist says it is not worth living without Barney it seems as if.


Act 3 questions

What I really don’t understand in this act is that Romeo asks friar Lawrence for mercy but Romeos type of mercy is different from Friars Romeo wants friar to help Romeo kill himself I don’t see why he would want to die after he just gets married. while Juliet wants to commit suicide, Friar thinks Romeos philosophy is out to lunch.

What I really enjoyed in this act is it is a little more interesting than the other acts more drama and death which makes it interesting and the characters show through more in act 3 than they did in 2 and 1. Plus the tension between Romeo and him not telling his parents he got married.

I would like to know more about what motivated Romeo to get the courage to kill himself he wants friar to give him poison to assist him kill himself i just don’t see why he would  want to kill himself he just got married he could live happily very after.

A man Of constant Sorrow

(In constant sorrow through his days)

I am a man of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my day.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.
(The place where he was born and raised)

For six long years I’ve been in trouble
No pleasures here on earth I found
For in this world I’m bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now.

[chorus] He has no friends to help him now

It’s fare thee well my old lover
I never expect to see you again
For I’m bound to ride that northern railroad
Perhaps I’ll die upon this train.

[chorus] Perhaps he’ll die upon this train.

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave.

[chorus] While he is sleeping in his grave.

Maybe your friends think I’m just a stranger
My face you’ll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given
I’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.

[chorus] He’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.

Extra Credit Assignment

“This is not a whimsical idea, it is a serious plan.” Calvin Klein, New York Magazine. Ready to pass your next expository essay with flying colors? This will aid your rise to the top in the grade hierarchy. Why would you settle with a passing mark, when you can eat with the kings? We do not want to make this sound silly or fanciful, writing well is important and should be a high-priority. In our essay we will examine how to properly organize an essay, write body paragraphs, and coherently write an expository essay.
Organization is key when writing an expository essay. The first paragraph will be the introduction, capturing the reader’s’ attention in this paragraph is essential. The introduction paragraph is the first brick laid down to build the castle, without it being strong you will have no way of ever entering the promise land. To make an introduction engaging you must include: a compelling topic and thesis sentence. The topic sentence is one of the first sentence in an essay, it should briefly explain what the essay is about. Also, at the beginning of each paragraph, except the conclusion, you need to add a topic sentence stating what that particular paragraph is about. Your thesis sentences will be the last sentence in the introduction, it must be a parallel sentence and should explain what each of the body paragraphs will include and which questions each paragraph will answer. Here is an example of an incorrect thesis statement and then the same ideas reworded to make it accurate: “Now I  will examine the way Navorski, Frank and Amelia cope with waiting.I will also analyze what I believe the general message of the film is.” This example is from gevans. The problem with these sentences is that they are not in parallel form. Correctly redone it would read: “I will now examine the way Navorski copes with waiting, how other’s such as Amelia deal with situation in which they need to be patient and analyze the general message of the film”. Next you will need to include the body paragraphs. The body paragraphs are a critical part of the essay. You must have at least 3 body paragraphs in your expository piece. In these three or more paragraphs you must have a supporting idea, and at least three details explaining the facts and your opinion. All of the details must support your thesis.The information must be relevant and accurate. It is also essential to have the some of the 5 golden bricks. The 5 golden bricks consist of an anecdote, facts, quotes, statistics, and detailed descriptions. To end paragraphs, you need more than just to skip a line, you need to use a transition sentence. Transitions are sentences used to connect one idea or paragraph to the next idea. An example of a well written transition is: “Even when Amelia leaves Navorski and tells him to go and complete his destiny, Viktor reacts courteously”. That transition is from jpeterson. This sentence closes the idea of that specific paragraph and then connects it to the next idea. The next example from panderson has no connection to the paragraph that follows it, but it does complete that paragraph, “That’s how love affects Viktor, he would have done anything for her as well”. The first sentence of your concluding paragraph is a re-worded thesis statement. Second you will summarize the entire essay in this paragraph. One of the most important concepts to remember is that you don’t want to introduce any new ideas, and this paragraph will not be very long. Another important concept while writing an essay is to make sure that it the body paragraphs are well written.
In the body paragraphs of an expository essay you must be sure to answer all of the questions, but not by bluntly asking them and then stating the answer right afterwards. Instead you must write your answers in such a way that your reader can figure out what the question was when they finish the paragraph. To answer your questions, write it so that each of your topics are supported by 3-5 clear and detailed pieces of evidence, and always make sure you provide a reason why your evidence supports your subject (example figure 1.1). As you can see, the details provided are all relevant and relate to the topic. The roots of your subject sprout from the sentences inside your essay, so be sure your ideas flow well, and this way, your ideas will be clearly separated and won’t get mixed up or confused. Aside from making sure that your sentences flow, you must keep the main idea of your paragraph clear. Also make sure that you stick to your plan, if you have one (see figure 1.2 as an example of a planning page). When creating your sentences be sure to use the proper words in the right context, this also means not repeating the same words over and over. Try to use your linking lexicon, or personal army of synonyms to do this. This way you can use the most descriptive and accurate words for your piece, as well as keeping your reader interested. When asking rhetorical questions make sure you do not stray off topic and providing anecdote can expand your essay and make it more engaging. Try to restate your main ideas and supporting evidence in different and creative ways throughout your paragraph. Be sure to proofread your body paragraphs and the rest of the essay before submitting it. Plus at the end of your paragraph be try to leave some form of starter for your next paragraph, this will help make your essay flow better.


Figure 1.1

“How ever on the flip side of this, when other characters are put into a scenario where they must wait, the respond with outrage and anguish. For example, the man from Russia with the medications. Without the MPL Dixon cannot let him bring the medications in, but with Navorski having waited in the air port for so long and being as compassionate and patient as he is gives up his chance at new york for the man to take the medications. Will that ever come back to repay Navorski? Probably not. As a matter of fact he may take Navorski’s act of compassion for granted, “If Navorski didn’t tell the man to say goat then he would have been sent home without his fathers medications.”

Another critical component of writing an expository essay is that it needs to be coherent. That means that good transitions are used, repetition is limited, and a variety of sentence structures. Transitions are important because they provide a finishing touch to a paragraph, as well as opening up the main idea of the next paragraph. Transitions are used by the authors to help the reader progress from one idea to another idea. They also show the relationship within a paragraph between the main idea and the support the author gives those ideas. Different transitions serve different purposes. Developments enhance in a logical order and improve the connections between every thought. They indicate relations and patterns, whether within a sentence, paragraph, or paper. They are basically key points that lead the reader through the essay. Transitions are necessary parts of an essay that help to make a clear, organized story and to make it coherent to the audience.Transition is the last sentence in a paragraph leading the reader to what’s up next paragraph. In a movie they switch scene to scene, that is a transition to the next part in the movie. Repetitions are good ways to enforce the subject of your topic, but are commonly misused or even under utilized in most paragraphs. The typical misuse of repetitions are when words like because and other are constantly repeated throughout the essay. Instead of copying the word over and over it’s better for the writer to find alternatives that has the same meaning. Ex) “Also just simply waiting in the airport for the many months he was trapped in airport he waited through it all” from btyner.  Another misapplication of repetition is when they are not used and the reader losses the meaning of the essay. This frequently happens when the essay is long and the writer never relates back to the main idea of their story. Some sentence types work better for getting across specific details. Parallel sentences can be used at the start of paragraphs to introduce the ideas that are in the paragraph. A parallel sentence should be used as the topic sentence to tell the reader what the essay will be all about. An example of a good use of parallelism at the start of essay is, “The Terminal, directed by Steven Spielberg and written by Andrew Niccol makes me consider some of the foundations of human nature, such as waiting, compassion and characteristics of tyrants” from jpeterson. Coherence is as important as introduction and a conclusion.
If your writing skills do not grow and develope then you cannot improve, achieve or be successful. Our essay has shown examples of proper organization of your essay, how to write body paragraphs, and how to write accurately and ways for your essays to flourish. This essay is about writing a successful expository writing piece organization, explicit detail, and transitions are key. “Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” – Benjamin Franklin.
