STRANGE IS UNIQUE

I’m Damian, a simple guy with brown eyes, brown hair, white skin and tall but just a little strange. I didn’t ask for too much I just needed someone to care but no one did, I started doing sport to keep my mind out of it but nothing work, then I started doing music and writing songs but she keep getting into my head. I still remember how we started, we started just like best friends, her name was Emma she was beautiful, she had brown and really long hair, brown eyes with glasses and a clean white smile. Every friend that I had started saying that is better to never get involved with her because she wasn’t “OKAY” but I don’t listen and fall in love with Emma.at first everything was nice and romantic but after 3 months I started seeing what everybody told edema started acting weird, I ask her but she said that nothing was wrong but I don’t know what to think so when Emma was taking a shower I started searching for weird stuff around the apartment, to my surprise I found 3 blades covered In blood, a picture of a women with a big “X” on the middle and behind everything else was a colt Wiley clapp.at first I have to admit I was scared but then I was fascinated with everything I found, when Emma got out of the shower I confronted her and she told me what was happening she told me that she was cutting herself and then told me who the women in the picture was, she told me that the women of the picture was her mother but suddenly she got angry and sad started by saying that her mother raped his little brother and the same week kill her little sister just because she was on drug and told me that she swear to make her mother suffer, torture her and then maybe just maybe kill her. She keep telling me her plan and suddenly stop talking and ask me if I was going to tell the police about her plan, I started smiling and she told me that my smile was creepy I just said that I wasn’t all honest. I was fascinated by how the people reacted to pain, suffer and dispare.my mind was on black the only thing that came out of my mouth was that I wanted to help her with everything, she started smiling and went to sleep, but I started thinking how the insides of a human body look like, I’ve seen the insides of an animal before is something that makes me feel good, taking the knife and putting it slowly on the chest of the animal an pull it down slowly seeing the liver, the stomach and the lungs fall out,je je je… I had to admit it felt amazing. Next day we wake up and Emma explains the plan she told me that my jobs is just to get everything we need and her job is to take care of the victim, before she went out she told me that this is the only chance to make this happen we can’t mess this up.so as she goes and takes care of the victim I went and buy the stuff we need I buy one big box,2 or 3 scorpions,3 tarantulas,4 army knife,1 colt just like the one in the TV show supernatural and gasoline. I wanted to surprise Emma so I buy an old farm far from any city or any house and send her the directions, suddenly I got a call from Emma telling me that ‘she is on the way and asking if everything is ready’ I said yes and hung up I knew before Emma gets to the farm I went in and found an old record player an on the left side we’re some old vinyl records so I put one on and “Queen “started playing then I started reading “Red Dragon” when I was reading a lot of ideas came to my head but none of the we’re good enough, suddenly I see an SUV coming to the farm a beautiful women was getting out of the SUV it was Emma dragging a women by the hair but the women looks unconscious. I help Emma getting the body inside and then I tied the women to the table suddenly the women wake up and started screaming, then Emma ask me to let her alone with her mother so I went outside and started hearing screams so I begin to read and go back inside when I didn’t heard scream no more.ema smiled and said “let’s begin with the fun” she started by cutting of her fingers one by one you can only hear the screams of pain, I couldn’t help it and started laughing then I took two knife and started to sharp them more in front of her and ask her in which part she didn’t feel more pain, the victim started smiling and told me that nothing I’m going to do is going to hurt her, I got real mad Emma look at my eyes and said that she never seen me like that she said I look creepy, I just started smiling like a Psychopath and took the smallest knife and stab her in the chest and really slow pull it down opening her by the stomach you could see her liver, her lungs I just started smiling more like a psychopath and laughing hard. Emma came and give me a hug from the back and kiss me on the neck she got close to my ear and said that she haven’t love anyone more than me In her live. Then Emma took another knife and started cutting her mother head, before Emma could open in two the head we stop at the same time and stare at each other maybe thinking the same thing, I started smiling and said that I had another surprise and pull a rope that was on the wall a sheet came down of the ceiling revealing a mirror on top of the table. Emma started laughing and said “it looks beautiful but there’s something missing”. Real quick I go and get the 3 tarantulas and the 3 scorpions I put them in the stomach of Emma mother and we started betting on which one was going to win, you could only hear the screams of mother, the music and our laugh. I bet on the tarantulas but I lost so Emma have the honor to open the head in two, her mother was screaming her lungs out(literally).Emma knew that the body won’t another cut so she took the colt and got close to her mother and said “I won’t forgive everything you did to my brothers even if it meant saving my life ”Emma put the colt on the left eye and shot then Emma shot the right one and last put the colt on the middle of the head and shots. We are covered in blood, so we started cleaning I took the body and put it inside the box put it outside and got the gasoline begin to poor gasoline all over the box and put it on fire, then Emma told me she wanted to be alone so I kiss her and go outside an started playing guitar 2 hours passed and she haven’t come out but when I came in Emma wasn’t there I started searching for her but I didn’t find here the SUV wasn’t there either….2 years has pass since I last saw Emma,2 years since she disappeared every now and then I go to the farm and play the song I dedicated to her “Here and now” by Luther Vandross hoping she comes back. Some people move on but I just can’t, I still kill people for money or just for fun, like I said at the beginning “always been a fan with pain, suffering”. Now I just stay home and write song for here, she still keeps getting into my head but I still think maybe she would come back and sit right beside meshed always said that she don’t know why I was with here, ja ja ja ja…I wish you were by my side so I could tell you why I started playing “like I’m going to lose you” by Meghan trainor and john legend. I just stop playing because I felt some one behind me when I turn around it was her the beautiful women I loved crying so I started saying what she wanted to know all this time “I’m with you because your special, just because of your bipolarity and your selfishness, etc… and all of that its what make you only special to me all that make Emma just Emma”.…...

The Shang Dynasty

...The Shang dynasty, also known as Yin, was in power approximately from the years 1765 - 1027 B.C. According to the Chinese, the start of the Shang dynasty began when Tang, a man of great virtue and wisdom, overthrew the decadent emperor Kie. Kie was known to be the last man in the Hsia dynasty. The Shang Dynasty was the second hereditary dynasty in China. It lasted almost six hundred years with thirty-one kings and seventeen generations. The Shang used to be an old tribe that lived in the lower reach of the Yellow River. A very important part about the shang dynasty is their artifacts. The artifacts that go along with the history tell a story, and it is very close to their religions. One of their designs, have been in their dynasty for as long as it could be. The t’ao design, also known as that taotie design, is a historic piece of their spiritual virtues. The taotie characteristically consists of a zoomorphic mask in full face that may be divided, through the nose ridge at the center, into profile views of two one-legged beasts, or dragons, confronting each other. A ground pattern of squared spirals, the “thunder pattern” often serves as a design filler between and around the larger features of the design. The Shang taotie is a very popular design. Another culture that has very popular designs is the Pueblo Indian. Their pottery has made use of the market for ethnic art to express their artistic, religious and economic values. One remarkable thing about the interactions......

Collaboration & Argument Paper

...Collaboration and Argument Paper Kelly Barnes, Jill Sanders and Estela Yanes ENG/215 January 28, 2013 Sophia Hsia Collaboration and Argument Paper Collaboration is defined as working cooperatively with others or simultaneously to achieve a goal. Especially, in a creatively endeavor to put together the right elements of success to accomplish their objective. Argument is defined as a debate or the implication of expression through opinions for an effort to persuade the ideas that provides support or is a contrast. Robert Ennis defines an argument as “an attempt to support a conclusion by giving reasons for it.” (Critical Thinking, 1996). Collaboration changes the research process because it is a group idea instead of an individual idea. Collaboration also gives each individual in a group or team the ability to share their original ideas along with interacting with others by sharing thoughts through a critical thinking process. Collaboration can be motivation for the better prepared students to help provide support and reassurance to the team who might not meet their goal or objective. The students who are not prepared are likely to work harder to try and not disappoint the team. Having a team leader shares the responsibility for student’s success through frequent use of collaboration as an approach to improving directions for an effective use of planning time.

The Mongols

...army was the most influential institution. All except “physicians, undertakers and priests” were expected to go for military training after the age of fourteen. A soldier was responsible for making sure his equipment was kept up to standard and was regularly inspected by officers. Failing to look after one’s equipment usually meant being sent home from the regiment. (Marshall 37). Military exercises transformed the nomadic horsemen into professional soldiers. (Marshall 40). After putting down all internal resistance, Genghis Khan started building his own empire. Genghis Khan’s troops raided the rich but peaceful Hsi-Hsia kingdom of western China, which lay on the far side of the Gobi desert. Genghis’s army forced the Hsi-Hsia king to “recognize the overlordship” of Genghis Khan. Genghis made peace with the king of Hsi-Hsia and as a good will gesture, the king had to give his daughter’s hand in marriage to Genghis. (Nicolle 21). Genghis preferred that his neighbors would surrender to him without going to war. The invasion of Chin was a very harsh experience for Genghis. The campaign started in 1211 and ended in 1215. Genghis was not present when finally the Chin commanders abandoned the city and the Mongols entered unopposed. (Marshall 48). He also invaded many Muslim powers. (Nicolle 22). His empire extended from the Black Sea to Korea. (47). Genghis Khan died in August 1227, “his death was kept a secret” and......

Introduction and General Remarks for Ancient China

...discussion on customs there will be a discussion on an important festival connected to this great waterway. During the course of many centuries the various rulers gradually pushed the frontier outward in all directions and China was welded into a strong and united empire. The Division of Chinese History into Dynasties and the Cohesion and Continuity of Chinese History Chinese history is divided into dynasties like ancient Egypt, but with names not numbers. A particular dynasty was a family that stayed in power for a few to many centuries. With only a couple of exceptions, China was 3 ruled by dynasties for 4000 years. Names of the various dynasties are spelled differently, but the following ones will be discussed in this lecture: Hsia, Shang, Chou or Zhou, Chin, and Han. Compared to the discontinuity and change of Ancient Indian and Ancient Mesopotamian civilizations, China is characterized by cohesion and continuity. While there were numerous invasions of China over the centuries, the Chinese were not forced to adopt the language or customs of their invaders. Rather invaders invariably became Chinese. All Chinese are mongoloids like their nomadic invaders. The Chinese enjoyed racial and cultural homogeneity throughout their history. Later this homogeneity was further cemented by the standardization of their writing system, which enables speakers of widely differing dialects to communicate with each other. In contrast look at the sub-continent of India......

What would a SWOT analysis of HP and Compaq reveal? The main takeaway from this analysis is that the macro environment was tough, especially after the 9/11 attack and the technology industry was getting increasingly competitive and ever-changing. Therefore, even though both companies had their strengths, management was aware that the same business model would not last much longer. They were both clinging from very weak businesses: HP from the imaging and printing solutions that was already threatened by other brands and was evolving into digital solutions. Compaq was relying on a PC distribution model that was already showing signs of decay, especially shown by the negative operating margins they had even though they were the leaders in the market. Clearly they both needed a profound change and understood that combining with a company with opposite strengths could be a viable solution to ensure continued growth and the needed skills to adapt their model for the future, where enterprise 2 FGV15-303: Mergers and Acquisitions Case 1: The merger between Hewlett Packard and Compaq services was developing fast (as shown by IBM......

It is because when memory distortion occurs, we may learn incorrectly.(Sveiby,1997) Knowledge components is a process which a people is using it alone or in combination with other knowledge component. There are a few kinds of knowledge components which are domain knowledge, prerequisite knowledge, integrative knowledge and metacognitive knowledge. Domain knowledge is including concepts, facts, rules, principles and so on. Prerequisite knowledge is defined as the basic knowledge we must have. Integrative knowledge is including steps that link to other knowledge components. Metacognitive knowledge is about understanding of how the knowledge is used(Anonymous,2016). According to Chun-Yao Tseng, Da Chang Pai, Chi-Hsia Hung (2011,p.971), knowledge is the main ability and internal resources of the company and the company can uses knowledge to generate new ideas and to create unique product or services which are different from the competitors to gain competitive advantages. According to Yen-Ku Kuo Tsung-Hsien Kuo Li-An Ho( 2014,p.698), if the employees not willing to share the knowledge, then the company cannot create new ideas through knowledge sharing. Therefore, the company need knowledge to create new ideas and innovate. According to Alice H.Y.Hon, Steven S.

Vulnerable Population

...Vulnerable Population Laura Nelli Nur 440 11/27/2011 Annette Guinther Vulnerable Population January 19, 2011 — Access to trauma care is limited for many vulnerable patients, according to the results of a cross-sectional analysis reported in the January issue of the Archives of Surgery. "Associated with the increasing closures of trauma centers is the growing concern regarding disparity in trauma access," write Renee Hsia, MD, MSc, from the Department of Emergency Medicine, University of California–San Francisco, and San Francisco General Hospital; and Yu-Chu Shen, PhD, from the Graduate School of Business and Public Policy, Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. "Several studies have highlighted that access to trauma centers is not even for all populations, especially rural and urban groups. Another important aspect of access that has been less studied but suggested as a possible area for intervention is that of socioeconomic disparities in system-level access to care, specifically, race/ethnicity, income, and age." The study goal was to compare geographic access to trauma centers among various populations, including those that are traditionally vulnerable. Data from the American Hospital Association Annual Survey from 2005 were linked with Zip code–level data from the US Census in rural and urban communities, and a multinomial logit model allowed assessment of the odds of having difficult vs easy access to trauma centers for a given subgroup of......

Childhood Obesity

...keeping then in touch with their cultural roots, as well has creating a healthy lifestyle. Students spend around 682.5 days, if a child goes to school for 13 years, for about 7 hours a day, and 180 days of school. Students spend majority of their day at school. Most students eat breakfast, lunch and snacks that school system provides. Children also participate in physical education classes, which require children to be well nourished, in order to have the physical energy to expend during these activities. The number of overweight children aged 6 to 17 years in the United States nearly tripled between 1976 (6%) and 2004 (17%). In Europe, nearly 22 million children are overweight, with this number expected to reach 2.3 million by 2011 (Pi-Hsia, Hsiang-Ru, Yu-Hua, Lu-I, & Wen-Ying, 2009). These numbers are devastating and prove that childhood obesity is on the rise. Rees, Richards and Gregory (2008), agree that “With the rising prevalence of obesity in children causing concern in society, government and media attention has recently focused on school food, especially the nutritional composition of school meals. Food-based standards for school meals have been in place since 2001, but these have not been effective at improving nutrient intake (Nelson et al., 2007). A national survey conducted in primary schools (Nelson et al., 2006) showed that schools were failing to meet the food-based standards. Of 146 schools, only 23% met all the compulsory standards at the start of......
