Welcome fellow graduates and honored guests to the sixtieth anniversary of set-back for Stoll Community College. For those graduating, this day marks the culmination of a period of courage, commitment, and accomplishment. For these reasons, I am greatly honored to be chosen as student verbaliser for this outstanding class of graduates and I hope that my words leave give a measure of justice to the significant event that has brought all of you here tonight. Hopefully, we will laugh a little, perhaps cry, and give some much-deserved praise. For the class of 2012, this is our night to shine, to pat ourselves on the back, to say Well done. Good job. And as we take total stage to receive our degrees we are also going to lift the curtain and recognize the people behind the scenes. People handle the three individuals I am now going to tell you about. Though you may never have personally met any of them, I am certain you have met people like them in your careers as students. They are th e embodiment of why we are here tonight. Her name is Mary. She was born towards the end of the Great Depression and, while still actually young, she contracted polio. Now, imagine if you can, what it is like to live in the shadow of an illness that substantially impairs your ability walk without pain or climb a charge of stairs without handrails or assistance. What would you do? How would you live your life? Mary stepped out of the shadow and endeavored to live life beyond any physical limitation. When her three children had self-aggrandising and moved away, when her foster children had all found permanent homes, she enrolled in college. Reaching for what others said would be impossible, she graduated with honors from Stoll Community College 35 years ago. Two year... ... word. roughly importantly, give thanks them for the unconditional love they continue to show. Mom, thank you for everything, I love you very much. Mi esposa, mi BeBe, te quero mucho. Feliz aniversario. Later, when all of tonights excitement and nervousness has subsided, thank yourself. You have earned it. To graduate is a great accomplishment whether you started ten or two years ago matters not, what matters is the determination and hard work that brought you to this routine. Your moment to shine. And so, as you prepare to walk through a new door, as you set new and challenging goals for yourselves, remember to keep your eyes focused anterior because the future is sure to be adventurous, full of laughter, hope, achievement, gratitude, and inspiration. Congratulations to the class of 2006 on this, the sixtieth anniversary of commencement for Stoll Community College.

The Horizons of Theory Jameson, Marxism, and PoststructuralismFredric Jamesons The Political Unconscious is a work which crosses theories boundaries, which walks (or polices?) Marxisms set up on poststructuralism. It may easily be read as a refutation of poststructuralism, or as an embrace of it as a flight from Marxism (though below its own banner), or as its theoretical redemption this is not a contradiction (we might read Jameson as replying), but a dialectical, productive exploration of the tension between these philosophies. Indeed, Jamesons exposition of his Marxist hermeneutic may be taken as a reply (from within a discourse he perceives as Marxism) to the poststructuralisms of Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze, and as a conversation with the structural Marxism he c on the wholes Althusserian but Jameson attempts to reconcile these views with the Marxist tradition. We may read The Political Unconscious as positing a mode of reading which is acceptable to or which subsumes both a demystifying Marxism and the aporia or irreducible contradiction of deconstruction but in so doing, as Jameson maybe realizes, the text is drawn into the clear contradictions between these theories, and only partially resolves (or evades) them.The central thesis of The Political Unconscious is the presence of History as the untranscendable or imperious horizon of all reading and all interpretation (17). We may immediately note that this untranscendable presence apparently contradicts deconstructions mistrust of all presences within and behind texts, to put nothing of Derridas derisive references to transcendence. To look for History in the text, to find the hidden meaning of History through it, would evidently not be a sa... ...rificing the mortal text to a broader structural analysis that a Marxist cultural study can hope to play its part in political praxis, which remains, of course, what Marxism is all about (299). It is revealing (from a Marxist standpoint) that t his final aside marks the only reference to concrete political involvement in the volume perhaps more tellingly, The Political Unconscious treats this sacrifice of the traditional, individualistic literary text as a price which, however unfortunately, must be paid (in pasture to satisfy the demands of Marxism). But as a reconciliation of the poststructuralist, anti-transcendent insistence on specificity with some of the theoretical imperatives of Marxist cultural thought, The Political Unconscious remains a breakthrough and as a proposal of a newly political, poststructuralist historicism, it is undeniably persuasive.

Sexual harassment is another subject of interpersonal communication that occurs in the surveyplace. Although sexual harassment violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and as amended by the Civil Rights Act of 1991, it is still a reality in all places of employment which is why it is something that everyone should have the ability to identify, understand, and effectively answer to. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines sexual harassment as followsUnwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical bear of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individuals employment, unreasonably interferes with an individuals work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, and offensive work environment. Sexual harassment can take place between any two individuals any gender to any gender, any business, school, place of social, religious, and political organization, sureness to subordinate, subordinate to authority.The DeVito text separates this definiti...
The Play Sure Thing from David Ives examines the endless variations of boy meets girl and the prove pluck up lines. The central theme throughout the play displays a few varieties of a possible conversation that end with a ringing campana that symbolizes a fresh start and a second bump to make a good impression. The swift conversations begin in a coffee digest with the two main and only characters are Bill and Betty. From the beginning till the end of the play one can see a series of pick up lines, from a man to a woman sitting in a coffee shop reading. The lines start out short and rapid with an combining weight short response from the woman. Each line is separated by a ringing bell. All humans are critical of their fellow human?s beings. They are critical about their looks, cars and etc. broadly there is an old saying ?you never have a second chance to make a first impression.? In this play the author uses a bell as a mechanism of separating the dialogue of subsequent pick up lines, which gives the characters another chance to make a good impression. The ringing bell represents a fresh start. It is the device which allows these two characters to commence again, it is almost like the bell that is used for package matches which divides the rounds and lets the boxer rest before the next round begins. The play begins when Betty is setting down quietly reading her book when Bill walks in. The dialogue starts out genuinely short, Bill glances at Betty?s book which is The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. In Bill?s pick up line he misidentifies the author. Generally women like to meet men who are intelligent, interesting and have a funny sense of humor. On pages 845 and 846 Beatty asks where Bill went to college and he said, ?I went to Oral Roberts University. ? (Bell.) In the next round Beatty repeats the question again but Bill said he is lying about ever going to college.

Hawaiian goofball     The Branta sandvicensis, or Hawaiian goose looks similar to the CanadaGoose except only the face, cap, and hindneck are shady and Nene have buff-colored cheeks. The males and female have the same plumage. The feet of thisgoose are not completely webbed like the other geese. Lots of calls have beendescribe but the most common call is very similar to that of the Canada Goose,a resonate "honk." The goose has very strong toes long legs, decreased webbing.They are bang-up swimmers but are not found much near water. The raspberrys nest on theground and the young can fly at 1012 weeks. The adult Goose cannot fly while inmolt for 46 weeks.     Wild Nene populations can be seen in Hawaii Volcanoes theme Park,Mauna Loa, and Puu Waawaa on the island of Hawaii in Haleakala National Parkon Maui and at the Kilauea National Wildlife Refuge, along the Na Pali coastand outside Lihue on Kauai.
