Chasing the nanny
My name is Elena. I am twenty years old. I have a dog named Bella. She is a police dog. Bella can do a lot of things. She can chase everyone just by smelling something they own. She understands everything you say to her, and the best part of having her is that she is working with me. Together we have solved a lot of cases.
One day my phone rang. “Hello?” the only thing I heard was a really loud noise. I tried one more time, “Hello? Are you there?” “Oh, yes my darling. I’m here” it was my boss. “Why did you call, sir?” he answered “I have a very important job for you. You need to find a lost boy, he got kidnapped by his nanny.” I can’t believe it. A little boy got kidnapped by his own nanny. “I’m on my way, boss.” I ran outside to my car. “Oh no, I forgot Bella inside! Bella, come here!” I screamed. When she finally came, we drove to the police station. “Good morning sir, where should we go looking?” everybody was staring at us. “Good morning darling, you can start with the place the little boy last was seen. We are talking to his parents now.” How could I know where he was last seen? I started talking to one of the employed. “Do you know where the little boy was last seen?” “Yes and his name is James. He was last seen in the church. His parents said that he was just going to the toilet and then he got kidnapped.” I either can’t believe that his own parents let him go to the toilet all alone. Bella and I was going to find little James and his nanny. We drove over to his house and went looking for clues. After a while I got a little mad, because I didn’t found anything. Bella started barking. “What is it? What have you found?” Bella took her nose down to the floor. It was a room under us, hidden under a blanket. I opened the hatch under the blanket. It was dark, but it was light in the end of the stairs. It smelled like candles. I told Bella to stay where she was.
Page 1/2 At the end of the stars was a little door. I opened the door, and there he was. “Are you ok, James?” I asked. “Yes but I am very tired, do you know why she brought me here?” he looked at me with a sad face. “She kidnapped you, but I am going to get you out of here.” His hair was wet, and on the table beside him was a hair coloring bottle. “Did she color your hair, James?” “No, she was going to, but she forgot the towel upstairs.” Oh no, that means that she knows that we are here. “Did she say anything about why she kidnapped you?” “Yes or no, she was talking about how much she wanted a son. And that soon she will take me on a trip to Spain.” She wanted him to be his son. “Come James, we need to get out of this house!” We climbed up the stairs and out of the dark room. But Bella wasn’t there. We went outside, and there she was. Between the nanny’s feet’s. “Do you want your dog back, maybe?” I didn’t know how to get Bella back, but I answered “Yes please.” “Too bad, want to trade the dog with the kid?” there is the catch I was looking for. “No, I want the dog and the kid.” I didn’t think I was going to get both of them, so I sent James to the car. “You have to choose one of them I am not giving you both.” I gave Bella a look, and she understood what she had to do. Bella bite her in the foot. She was screaming loud. Bella ran to the car, and James opened the door for here. You are under arrest for trying to kidnap James.

When we came back to the police station, everybody was happy. We brought James to his parents and the nanny to our boss. “Thank you Elena, catching nannies can be hard.” It was a little hard to catch her, but we made it. “I am going to promote you and Bella, you deserve it!” I can’t believe it, we got a promotion.
Bella and I bought us a new house for the money we got from the job. And we are ready every day to chasing criminals.…...

...willing to hire them. At that time there were many positions to be taken, such as housekeepers, nannies, seamstresses, and so on. (Why Immigrants Come to America, Braceros, Indocumentados, and the migra P.15, 18, 23, 157). Throughout the years we’ve had millions of illegal immigrants coming into America, whether crossing the border or people coming here legally and overstaying with their visas. According to the Department of Human Services (DHS), the Department of Labor, and several think tanks estimate that 60 percent of unauthorized immigrants come across the borders, mostly with Mexico, without proper papers, and that about 40 percent enter legally but overstay their visas. (Illegal Immigration P. 37.) Now that we have over 12 millions of illegal immigrants Congress needs to take care of this issue, we also need to take care of our borders, many plans have been discussed in the last two years, but nothing has been resolved yet. Democratic sponsors of legalization argue that it will bring undocumented immigrants out of the shadows of an underground economy and into the light of accountability and greater cooperation in our fight against terrorism. They argue that legalization would decrease illegal immigration and aid the homeland security effort by allowing law enforcement agencies to concentrate on border security and tracking down criminals and potential terrorists instead of chasing after millions or ordinary undocumented aliens, especially Hispanics, who are here......

Interpretations of the Civil War in Early Film

...daughter of a former slave owner, whose cotton business had been ruined by the war, is stalked by a menacing looking black soldier, named Gus. He is shown with his shirt wide open and bare-chested. Flora, the stereotypical southern belle, notices the voyeur and is visibly shaken. Flora tries to hide from Gus, but Gus corners her and tells her that he wants her and that he is not married. Since the end of the Civil War, Flora has noticed several black soldiers in the area in the past few months harassing her family and other upstanding families. Gus forces Flora closer and tries to kiss her. In a panic, Flora slaps him and pushes him away. Flora flees into the woods. The ensuing pursuit shows Gus as a sex-crazed maniacal troll chasing down the seemingly innocent virginal fairy. Gus follows her absorbedly intent on raping her. Flora winds up on a cliff overlooking a series of jagged rocks. She stares at Gus and motions for him to leave her alone. In a silent ultimatum, she gesticulates that if he doesn’t leave then she’ll leap from the cliff to the rocks below. Gus is exposed as a beast, sweating and pulsating lustful desires. He moves closer to Flora to stop her from leaping. Unwilling to give herself to a black man and death being the only alternative, Flora jumps from the cliff. Thus, the quintessential portrayal of the black man was born into the psyche of American culture. The Birth of a Nation was just but one movie of the early era of Hollywood......

...My mind tormented and briefly captured … Caught in this “one day it’ll happen thought … Chasing pavements so frequently consistently I run out of breath, I think to myself ‘where is my place?’ will I ever look my love in the face? Will my heart keep this pace or will this lack of patience I contain be the cause of a deep crate resulting in an in depth hole of hopelessness and an angry soul … Eyes that only see red and feet damaged from cold pavements that failed to lead me home but surely left me cold. A mind accustomed to lies and deception a heart full of desperation to look my love in the eyes. I throw my hands to the skies, the words I speak are not lies, can’t you see my honesty? ,… I wear no disguise. Sharp needles of pain being aimed and shot seeping hate into my blood stream, penetrating my heart and ripping my soul... should I give up? No, I keep fighting with an arm extended and one knee to the ground. My battle is not over though my mind frowns. Tomorrow I will wear all black because joy is what I lack. Tomorrow you will wear all black because you are the thief who has stolen my mind, my body, my soul… Please let it go. Please just let it free. Allow my vocals to laugh... allow my lungs to breath.

Nanny Mcphee

...Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang (Critiquing) The movie based on Nurse Matilda books by Christianna Brand was set in Buckinghamshire, Hascombe, and University of London and in London’s roads. The setting indicates that the story happened during the World War II. It was in a farm where a simple family lived. The father was away at war so the mother of three Green children has to keep the farm while she ran a job in the village shop. The overall atmosphere of the setting was cheerful. It was a family movie that is why most of the scenes were happy. There were no symbolic elements in the scenery because the main focuses of the story were the characters and the lessons of Nanny McPhee. Given the storyline of the movie, the actors and the actresses conveyed their roles well especially Emma Thompson who played Nanny McPhee. She looked wicked in her first appearance but behind that was a kind, good-natured lady. She was very good in controlling her emotion. I also liked Oscar Steer who played as Vincent Green. He was a cute little boy. Despite his age he was excellent in acting. He acts natural like he was just playing around. Eros Vlahos suits his role as a spoiled brat. He exhibited real emotions of a rich kid who seeks attention and a real friend to his cousin, Norman Green. He was Cyril Gray in the movie. The characters relate to each other. They express their lines well and put themselves into the roles that they have. There was the emotion, the attitudes, and the......

Fin and Management

...ChinaZenaide Muneton is a nanny in New York City. Last year, she made more than $200,000, Planet Money reports. Yes, with five zeros. How in the world can Manhattan nannies be worth $200,000 a year? One answer is that they're more talented than your typical babysitter. The highest-paid nannies can cook four-course macrobiotic meals and know their way around a Zamboni (those are actual examples of nanny skills). But the number-one reason why nannies in Manhattan can get paid $200,000 is very simple. Rich families can afford it. And in the market for locally-delivered services, like caring for a child, prices rise as high as the clientele can afford to pay. What $200,000 nannies have to do with the price of tea in Six-figure nannies don't rule the world, but they help explain the world of prices. On a global scale, the price of locally-delivered services, such as nannies and barbers, fluctuate wildly from country to country. A simple haircut in Uzbekistan is much, much cheaper than a simple haircut in Beverly Hills. But lots of goods can be bought and enjoyed thousands of miles away from where they're made, like automobiles and paintings. If you're in the market for an original Picasso, it won't matter whether you buy the painting in China or in the United States. It will cost the same price anywhere, because the painting can be "consumed" anywhere. So, some prices vary wildly from country to country, and some prices don't. What's the difference?

Chasing a Dream

...Samuel Scheuer Karen Levy English 1A 14 April 2014 Chasing a Dream Almost everybody has dreams. One person’s could be to become a researcher while another’s could be to become a professional athlete. However, my dream is to become a You-Tuber, or someone who gets paid to make You-Tube videos. You-Tube is a huge social media website where people can post anything from amateur home-made videos, to professional Hollywood quality videos for the people on the internet to view and enjoy. In a recent toll, You-Tube found that there are currently over one billion You-Tube accounts worldwide, making it one of the biggest social media websites in the world. Therefore, it is not hard to imagine how difficult it might be to stand out above the millions of people making videos to become well known on the site. Luckily, I found one of those people that not only live in the Sacramento area, but that is also a third year student at Sacramento State University. His name is Brian Nguyen, or better known as Bigbeedoh on You-Tube, and he currently has around fifty thousand subscribers on the site, which is a decent amount. We met at a Starbucks in Elk Grove, his home town. We sat outside on some heavy iron chairs around a table made of the same material. The wind chilled my bare arms as I asked Brian why he decided to make a You-Tube channel. He adjusted his baseball cap as he responded in a deep voice, “Back in high school I took this media class that I wasn’t supposed to be in, because...

Chasing the Leaves of Fall

...My alarm sounds as I open my bright, blue eyes to begin this extraordinary Saturday in the middle of October. I hear the birds chirping outside which makes me smile, and I notice that the windows appear a little foggy and damp. It is a beautiful day in the Fall which is my favorite season, of course! I yawn as I step forth onto the cozy carpet and pleasantly smell my mom baking something downstairs. As I start walking down the stairs, I wonder what she is making. The aroma is divine. When I enter the kitchen, I am handed a soft, warm chocolate chip cookie shaped like a pumpkin and a glass of milk. “Thank you,” I reply with a smile. As I look out the window near the kitchen table, it is enjoyable to see all of the colorful leaves scattered throughout the yard. The leaves are of different shades of yellow, crimson red, orange, or a mix of the colors together. The shapes are unique as well. It is such a gorgeous time of the year I think to myself. Finishing every morsel of the cookie, I rinse my glass and put it in the dishwasher. After taking a shower and getting dressed, I walk into the garage that is filled with cool air. “I am going outside, mother, to rake the leaves!” I told her with excitement in my voice. I run outside onto the dewy, wet grass and begin to rake and try to form a big enough pile to jump into. The air is crisp and a few neighbors are gathering up the colorful leaves to burn. One of my favorite smells, as well chocolate chip cookies, is the smell of......

The Shock of the Fall (N. Filer)

...the police were there somewhere. And Simon was dead. My brother was dead.                                I couldn’t hold onto any of it though. I wouldn’t get to hold it again for a very long time. I can’t talk about it yet either. I have one chance to get this right. I need to be careful. To unfold everything neatly, so that I know how to fold it away again if it all gets too much. And everyone knows, the best way to fold something neatly is to follow the folds that are already there. My grandmother (Mum’s mum, the one we call Nanny Noo) reads books by Danielle Steel and Catherine Cookson, and whenever she gets a new one the first thing she does is flip straight to the back to read the last page. She always does that. I went to stay with her for a bit. Just for the first week or so. It was a very sad week, and probably the most lonely of my life. I don’t think it is even possible to feel more lonely, even if you didn’t have your granddad and your Nanny Noo to keep you company. You’ve probably never met my granddad, but if you have then you will know that he is a keen gardener. Only he doesn’t have a garden. That’s kind of funny if you think about it. But it isn’t that funny because he rents a small allotment a short drive from their flat, where he is able to grow vegetables and a few herbs like rosemary and some others that I always forget. That week we spent ages there. Sometimes I would help with the weeding, or sometimes I would sit at the edge of his patch of allotment......

Their Eyes Analysis

...her fantasy of a blossoming marriage represents an epiphany, a coming of age moment in which Janie’s childhood dreams are realized as unrealistic and naïve, as the true, destructive disposition of nature is unleashed. The most driving force in Janie’s early teenage years is the need for attainment of the ideal marriage filled with love and equality, which she was introduced to by a pear tree in full blossom filled with sexual images such as “dust-bearing bees sink[ing] into the sanctum of a bloom” (Hurston 11). She became obsessed with the spring and “attempts to harmonize her daily life with her ideal image derived from the pear tree” (Kubitschek 22). The first step in her search was her marriage to Logan Killicks, which happened after Nanny persuaded her that marriage grows into true love, which was all the Janie wanted. However, “the vision of Logan Killicks descrat[ed] the pear tree,” so when Joe (Jody) Stark appeared in her life, she took a chance and leapt into a new quest and a new marriage in hope that she would find the perfect marriage she longed for (Hurston 14). As Janie traveled to Eatonville with Jody and began to get to know him more, she realized that “he did not represent sun-up and pollen and blooming trees,” but she was still one step closer to her dream through him because “he spoke for change and chance” (Hurston 29). So her search for the blossom to the pear tree continued. As Jody grew more and more powerful in the town, nature imagery almost altogether...

Nanny Community

...specifically being a nanny. Being a nanny is a very great responsibility and it requires lots of time and being able to care for the child at all times. By becoming a nanny not only do you help the children but you also show them a great role model figure that they can look up to. Sometimes children don't have great role model figures to look up to so it's important that you show the children that you can care for them and be an inspiration to them. As a member of this community I believe that you need to be a very caring person to fulfil the needs of the children and their parents. I question how the other nannies are when they are around the children. Its very easy to become a nanny, there are many different places you can go to become one. There are multiple websites you can go on to sign up such as care.com, or the parents just hire you because you are a relative or neighbor. It is also very important to CPR certified and trained in first aide in case of any emergency that happens. Its very difficult being a nanny sometimes because a lot of the time the children will think since their parents are gone they can get rowdy around strangers and have them do things they are usually not allowed to do. Because I know I am a nanny in the babysitting community I wonder about why children behave so erratic when their parents are gone and what aggravates them to do so. Therefore the purpose of this study is to focus on the children's psychological behaviors around the nannies when......
