Essay on Symbolism on the Great Gatsby - 1179 Words

In novels, the use of symbols makes the story interesting and essential to the readers. Symbols are messages that the author uses to communicate with the reader for a deeper understanding, although sometimes it can only be discovered if analyzed. Fitzgerald connects the different symbols throughout the novel to pinpoint an elaborate meaning towards the story yet it does indicate a pleasant meaning. A symbol such as â€Å"color† or â€Å"money† can be less complex than it seems. Whereas a symbol as complicated as the â€Å"eye† can mean more than it’s suggested for. Throughout The Great Gatsby symbolism represent color, the existence of eyes and money. The color symbolism is repetitive throughout the novel. The colors represent the different†¦show more content†¦It represents war and love yet, it’s also the color of blood. Another important symbol which isn’t mentioned as much in the novel is the color blue. It represents a lost tim e and a fantasy of a different world. T.J. Eckleburgs eyes – which are painted upon the billboard across Wilson’s auto shop-, are blue, perhaps symbolizing a higher world from which God looks down upon the scene. The many color symbols that are present throughout the novel can be confusing and often missed if the reader does not look for them. Eyes are symbols that Fitzgerald uses to expose the constant watchful and different perspective of the people in the Great Gatsby. Owl-eyes is the only one that realized that Gatsby was putting on a show, the first time they met in the library. He was in complete disbelief of Gatsby’s â€Å"real books† in his library, which made it even more fascinating. The nickname Owl-eyes is ironic for this drunken man, but in his clear insight, he is wise. Fitzgerald introduced Owl-eyes in a way that the readers are immediately critical, but then changes after using a positive attitude toward the drunken man. Like Nick, Owl- eyes is imperfect, but they are the only two characters Fitzgerald portrays as moral and the only two friends who attended Gatsbys funeral. Owl Eyes represents the human form of the T.J. Eckelburg sign in the Valley of Ashes, across from Wilsons auto shop.

Katniss And Rue Friendship Analysis - 1203 Words

Katniss and Rue: Friendship Analysis Suzanne Collins’ character, Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games, is a determined young woman who knows that life is not as easy and happy as the Capitol would like everyone to believe. This is partly why she is so untrusting of everyone’s motives; she does not truly believe anyone could be interested in her just for her, they always have ulterior motives in her mind. The one thing she does know how to do however is to protect. She has been protecting her family since her father died and while in the Hunger Games arena she finds herself wanting to protect Rue, a young girl who reminds her so much of her younger sister. Katniss and Rue only know one another for the short time during the Games, but in that time they build a friendship; the question however is: What kind of friendship do they have? Would they have been friends if they knew each other outside of the Games? If they both managed to survive the Games would they continue to be friends? Although these questions can only be speculated through analysis of their interactions the responses could give further insights on their characters. Familiarity is what brought Katniss to notice Rue, a familiarity that ultimately fueled her need to protect and befriend her. From the time Katniss saw Rue’s reaping on the train ride to the Capitol she sees her as â€Å"†¦very like Prim in size and demeanor.† (Collins 45).

Global warming and climate change has the potential to be a serious issue in the world today. Global warming is a global temperature rise. With the ice caps melting many animals are going extinct or having to adapt to different places of the world. Leaders of the world are also starting to realize that global warming is starting to lead to climate change. Climate change is classified when average temperatures raise 2 degrees. Climate change is an effect of global warming. Greenhouse gasses are raising temperatures temperatures. Greenhouse gasses include- carbon dioxide, methane, nitro-us oxide, ozone. these gasses have a serious effect on the environment and heat up the atmosphere rapidly. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenhouse_gas) Greenhouse gasses are emitted through cars, pollution, and factories. The gasses trap heat the sun gives off, causing global temperature to rise. Greenhouse gasses are also destroying the ozone layer. The ozone layer protects the Earth from the suns harmful U.V rays.

Economics for Business Equity and Marketisation

Question: Discuss about theEconomics for Business for Equity and Marketisation. Answer: The importance of the education sector in Australia cannot be overstated. It comes as no new fact that the education sector of Australia plays an important role, as apart from serving the Australian students, the country has come to be known for offering a great variety of study options to the international students as well. Australia being a center of education for so many students, the Australian government has been introducing a variety of reforms to ensure the bright future of the students studying in Australia. From establishing different training packages, to funding the education of the less privileged students, the Australian education industry has come a long way in the last few years (Sullivan et al. 2013). Education plays an important role in the economy of the Australian government, as Australia is slowly emerging as an important destination for the international students, who contribute an average of $ 15.6 per year. Keeping in consideration, the higher demand of skilled education, the Australian government has been introducing various reforms to help the students become industry ready, and to equip them with the necessary professional skills as well (Savage et al. 2013). The Australian government plays an important role in the school education sector of the country. The government has introduced the Students First Package of reforms, which focuses on four important factors, to ensure the growth of high quality education in the schools: Improvement in the quality of the teacher Engagement of the parents in the academic matters Autonomy of the schools Strengthening the Australian curriculum Besides, based on the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians, the Australian government has aimed to achieve the equity and excellence in terms of the education delivered to the school students of Australia (Zajda 2013). The Australian government helps in the achievement of this goal, buy finding the government as well as non-government schools of Australia. Besides, the Council of Australian Government, Early Childhood Development Committee are some of the advisory bodies, which supervise, and make the necessary recommendations on the school education sector of Australia. Australia has also introduced Australias Aid Program and Education for All, whereby the country has shown its commitment to create an all-inclusive approach to the issue of education, so that every child and each youth can get access to high quality education. The aid policy of the Australian government has made a commendable change as during the year of 2013-14, the policy has helped 1.4 million children to gain admission in different government schools. With the admission of new education, were also introduced highly qualified and professionally trained 100000 new teachers, and 450 Australian scholarships (Zink 2014). Vocational Education and Training ( VET) system has been introduced by the Australian government. Since 1960 the VET policy has been in vogue in Australia, and yet it has undergone much radical changes in the last few years. The VET system is governed jointly by the government and the independent bodies. The aim of the VET is to assist the students earn sufficient skill, knowledge, expertise and competency required to be employed in a professional field (Hill et al. 2016). Further, it has also been observed that a huge number of immigrants coming to Australia for the completion of studies,are unable to communicate fluently in English. Hence, the VET sector also caters to the needs of the communication skill needs of the indigenous and immigrant section of the population as well. The VET organization helps the students become industry-ready, and enhance their employability skills, and as such around 1.7 million students got enrolled in the public VET system, as opposed to a mere 9,50, 000 students in the Australian universities in the year 2007. VET is largely funded by the Australian government, and the state and tertiary government of Australia that enables the Australian students get government subsidies, for the completion of short duration technical courses, such as cabinet marketing, mortuary studies, fashion designing, and many more (Stehlic 2013). The Australian government also pays sufficient attention to the quality of the professional training imparted to the Australian students; hence, the trainers firstrequireto comply with the national set of compliance standards of the Australian Quality Training Framework, before their service as trainers is approved by the government. The establishment of the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC), was another important reformatory step undertaken by the Australian government. Established in the year 2015, the committee consists of some of the great industrial leaders of Australia, who are responsible for providing guidance and leadership to the VET system (Li and Powdthavee 2015). The Bradley Review committee was established in 2007, that based on its findings, reported that the students from low-socio economic classesare not being encouraged enough to pursue higher education, due to lack of money. Hence, in the year 2009, the Australian government responded to the review co mmittee, by introducing educational reforms according to which the government will be responsible for providing subsidies to the students pursuing tertiary education in Australia. The federal government of Australia has endorsed the policy of the Australian students entitlement to tertiary education. A student accordingly receives guaranteed funding assistance from the Australian government for the pursuit of higher education. The students can also gain easy access to the income contingent loans offered by the government (Mathews 2013). Needless to say the Australian government has gone a long way in achieving high quality education, with the help of the introduction of significant educational reforms and policies. However, as the Melbourne Declaration also noted, there is an increasing need for the government to improve the educational condition of the Aboriginal population of the Torres Strait, as these students from the low socio-economic backgrounds do not enjoy an equitable access to the educational resources. Again, although the Australian students are expected to enjoy the right to government funds for the completion of higher education, the entitlement policy currently applies to a limited number of institutions. Similarly, some VET diplomas are funded by the government in some limited states of Australia, and not in all states. Thus, there is an increasing inequitable distribution of education, which must be taken care of by the government.

Redox Titration Lab Report Essay Example

Redox Titration Lab Report Paper Cry H2O This equation can be used to convert moles of the dichloride ion to moles of the unknown iron to determine the percent of iron contained in the sample, To prepare the acid mixture add 125 ml of both concentrated phosphoric acid ND sulfuric acid to 500 ml of denizens water and mix well. To prepare the potassium dichloride solution dissolve about I . 25 g of potassium dichloride in denizens avatar and dilute to 250 ml. To standardize the potassium dichloride weigh out about 0. G of ferrous ammonium sulfate, hexameter into a 250 ml flask and dissolve in 50 ml Of denizens water and mix for two minutes. Then add 50 ml of the acid mixture previously made and add three to four drops Of p;Diophantine sultanate indicator to the solution. Then titrate with the potassium dichloride until a hanged in color from green to purple occurs. Repeat these steps for three more trials. To titrate the unknown sample of Fee weigh out about 0. G of the unknown into a 250 ml flask and dissolve the sam ple in SO ml of denizens water and mix for two minutes, As before ass 50 ml of the previously made acid mixture and three to four drops of p-Diophantine sultanate and titrate with the potassium dichloride. Then use this information to calculate the percent iron in the unknown sample. The only obvious observations that could be made in the experiment was the lour change of the solution from green to purple due to the indicator p- Diophantine sultanate and also titrating the solution with potassium dichloride.
