THIS ESSAY IS BASED ON THE SHINING FILM, NOT THE BOOK
Connect Jack’s breakdown to his inner darkness. We are focusing on the concept of the double in the horror genre — the darker self, which turns a human being into a monster when the principles of morality are abandoned.
2. Start each paragraph by identifying and explaining Jack’s specific moral problems, which lead to his self-destruction — alcoholism, violence/anger, lust/adultery, racism, misogyny, greed/envy, laziness, etc.
For example, explain laziness makes Jack bored to death. He reads The Playgirl magazine before the interview; he types that “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”; he is angry at his wife. So his imagination manifests a playgirl in room 237

Develop persuasive paper in which you take a specific position on a debatable to

Develop persuasive paper in which you take a specific position on a debatable topic important to society today and try to convince others to join you. It will be easy to offer an initial opinion, but a more inventive and insightful essay will go beyond a favorable or unfavorable opinion of the topic; it will also call readers into a fresh perspective. Integrate at least three secondary sources (periodicals, books, or websites) for your argument. At least one should be an academic source. Remember that sources need not only confirm your position. In fact, when we seek out only sources for confirmation, we limit the scope of ideas.

Annotated Bibliography 100 pts At a MINIMUM, your annotated bibliography must in

Annotated Bibliography 100 pts
At a MINIMUM, your annotated bibliography must include the 5 required resources for your paper. These are:
1 source from CQ Researcher
2 sources from periodicals–magazines, journals, or newspapers, obtained from print, an online version of a source, or through PCC library’s electronic databases
1 source that originally came from a book—Opposing Viewpoints database is great for these
1 relevant web site
If you have already found additional resources that you are planning on using in your paper, by all means include them on your annotated bibliography. To maximize your point-earning potential you must make sure that you have included AT LEAST your required resources.
Your next step in the building of your research project is the preparation of an annotated bibliography. The annotated bibliography is one of the more useful tools in conducting and preparing to present research. An annotated bibliography combines the citations found on the Works Cited list at the end of your research paper with annotations about each of the sources.
For this assignment, you will construct an annotated bibliography based upon the sources that you will be using for your research paper.
Purpose: An annotated bibliography is an organizing tool that is helpful when working on a research project. An effective annotated bibliography is used to compile research sources in one location and provide the researcher with quick access to the information contained in each source.
Annotations vs. Abstracts
Abstracts are the descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in subscription databases. Annotations, on the other hand, are descriptive and critical; they discuss the author’s point of view, clarity, appropriateness of expression, authority, and how you will work this source into your project.
IMPORTANT: Credit will not be given for descriptive/evaluative information copied from another source. In other words, if you find a book review and copy this review to serve as your annotation, you will not receive credit. This is plagiarism, and your instructor will follow the guidelines indicated in your syllabus for plagiarism. Your citations MUST be in MLA format to earn credit.
Audience: This assignment should be directed toward your peers in this course, and you may assume that they have only a casual familiarity with your topic or issue.
Content/Subject: Your annotated bibliography will consist of the sources that you have deemed relevant to completion of your research paper. While you may have no doubt encountered many sources that are not relevant or do not fit the scope of your project, for the purposes of this assignment, you will include only those sources that you find useful, relevant, and that you are planning on integrating into your research paper.
How To Complete this Assignment:
Cite the source in proper MLA format. The citations should be organized in alphabetical order by author just as on an MLA Works Cited page.
Begin your annotation by summarizing the source using at least three sentences. Do not copy and paste the abstract. With the exception of the quotes that you choose, see #4 below, the entire annotation should be in your own words.
In 2-6 sentences, explain the source’s relevance and importance to your paper.
4. Type up any material that you plan on quoting from your source, include your
parenthetical citation. Frequently, we want to quote material that our sources’
authors are quoting from a source that they read! This is called an indirect
source. Indirect sources are cited using “qtd. in” at the beginning of the parenthetical citation (qtd. in Jones).
Keep in Mind: Your citations must adhere to MLA format. This will be one of the central components of the grade for this assignment. Failure to follow MLA format exactly will harm your grade.
The annotations for each source should follow an academic style. This means that you must construct grammatically correct sentences that effectively summarize what each source has to say. Additionally, you should explain how each source is relevant to the issue that you have selected and what it adds to your knowledge about your issue.
Specific guidelines to follow when completing this assignment are:
Use your five required resources plus any additional sources you plan to use
Sources focused around your thesis statement
Adherence to MLA format for all citations.
Sources in alphabetical order according to author / first word of bibliographic citation
Thoughtful and complete annotations of 100-150 words.
Correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling

At nightfall the autumn woods cry out With deadly weapons, and the golden plains

At nightfall the autumn woods cry out
With deadly weapons, and the golden plains
The deep blue lakes, above which more darkly
Rolls the sun; the night embraces
Dying warriors, the wild lament
Of their broken mouths.
But quietly there in the pastureland
Red clouds in which an angry god resides,
The shed blood gathers, lunar coolness.
All the roads lead to the blackest carrion.
Under golden twigs of the night and stars
The sister’s shade now sways through the silent copse
To greet the ghosts of the heroes, the bleeding heads;
And softly the dark flutes of autumn sound in the reeds.
O prouder grief! You brazen altars,
Today a great pain feeds the hot flame of the spirit,
The grandsons yet unborn.
‘Grodek’ was written by the Austro-Hungarian poet Georg Trakl. (1887-1914)
Battlefield
Yielding clod lulls iron off to sleep
bloods clot the patches where they oozed
rusts crumble
fleshes slime
sucking lusts around decay. (5)
Murder on murder
blinks
in childish eyes.
“Battlefield” was written by the German poet August Stramm (1874 – 1915)
Gala
Skyrocket burst of hardened steel
A charming light on this fair place
These technicians’ tricks appeal
Mixing with courage a little grace
Two star shells first
In rose pink burst
Two breasts you lay bare with a laugh
Offer their insolent tips
…………HERE LIES
ONE WHO COULD LOVE
………………some epitaph
A poet in the forest sees
Indifferent able to cope
His revolver catch at safe
Roses dying of their hope
Thinks of Saadi’s roses then
Bows his head draws down his lip
As a rose reminds him of
The softer curving of a hip
The air is full of a terrible
Liquor from half shut stars distilled
Projectiles stroke the soft nocturnal
Perfume with your image filled
Where the roses all are killed
The poem was written by the French poet Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918).
Leaving For The Front
Before I die I must just find this rhyme.
Be quiet, my friends, and do not waste my time.
We’re marching off in company with death.
I only wish my girl would hold her breath.
There’s nothing wrong with me. I’m glad to leave.
Now mother’s crying too. There’s no reprieve.
And now look how the sun’s begun to set.
A nice mass-grave is all that I shall get.
Once more the good old sunset’s glowing red.
In thirteen days I’ll probably be dead.
The poem was written by the German poet Alfred Lichtenstein (1889-1914)
Farewell
(another translation of “Leaving for the Front”)
Before dying I am making my poem.
Quiet, comrades, don’t disturb me.
We are going off to war. Death is our cement.
If only my beloved did not shed these tears for me.
What am I doing. I go gladly.
Mother is crying. One must be made of iron.
The sun sinks to the horizon.
Soon I shall be tossed into a gentle mass grave.
In the sky the fine red of evening is burning.
Perhaps in thirteendays I’ll be dead.
Breaking Camp
Once before, fanfares tore to blood my impatient heart
So, like a rearing horse that bit its mouth apart.
Then, the march of drumbeats drove the storm along the ways,
And most wonderful music of the earth sent us bullet sprays.
Then, suddenly, life stood still. Paths led between old trees. (5)
Rooms beckoned. It was sweet, to stay awhile and be at ease,
The body from reality released as from dusty armour freed,
To lie voluptuously in the feather down of soft dreams’ bed.
But one morning through mist air the echo of signals rolled
Hard, sharp, a singing sword-thrust. As if fingers of light in the dark took hold.
It was as when trumpets’ blare through dawn bivouacs sound,
Sleepers spring to action, camp is broken, horses paw the ground.
I was lined in ranks that pushed into the dawn, fire over helmet and saddle
Forwards, in the eyes and in the blood, with stiff-held reins, the battle.
At day’s end, perhaps, paeans for us would play, (15)
Perhaps under the dead somewhere stretched out we lay.
Yet before the stir to arms and before to earth we sink
Full and gleaming our eyes would of the world and sunlight drink.
The poem was written by the German poet Ernst Stadler(1883-1914).
Present the thesis in the location of the writer’s choice – introduction is a common choice, but a delayed thesis works, too
Use one or two of the WWI poem(s) read in the course as the primary support for the thesis: British or French/German/Austrian

The thesis that needs to be proven: The speaker in John Donne’s poem “The Flea”

The thesis that needs to be proven: The speaker in John Donne’s poem “The Flea” mixes flirtation and crude humor to seduce a woman, while simultaneously rejecting the 17th century’s religious and conservative views on sex through the use of diction and metaphysical language. *THIS THESIS IS NOT SET IN STONE; IT CAN BE REWORDED OR CHANGED*
introductory paragraph:
– engaging hook
– transition sentences
– thesis: The speaker in John Donne’s poem “The Flea” mixes flirtation and crude humor to seduce a woman, while simultaneously rejecting the 17th century’s religious and conservative views on sex through the use of diction and metaphysical language.
paragraph 1: DICTION
– the diction is perverse and crude; elicits the physical nature of sex AND demonstrates how witty the speaker is
– it is a battle of wits between the man and the woman
– very much not a love poem; no extravagant flowery language, much the opposite
diction to use:
1. “enjoys” (Donne, line 7)
2. “swells with” (Donne, line 8)
3. “sucked” (Donne, line 22)
– each diction should have a separate analysis
– the analysis includes what the quote means in the context of the text AND how it is relevant to the thesis
paragraph 2: METAPHYSICAL LANGUAGE
– metaphysical means pushing a metaphor to its highest degree, so the speaker uses the metaphor of a flea and pushes it so outrageously far to make the argument for the women to sleep with him
– at the same time, he makes fun of the sacred and religious views of sex and virginity in that time period
quotations on metaphysical language to use:
1. “Thou know’st that this cannot be said/ A sin, nor shame, nor loss of maidenhead” (Donne, lines 5-6)
2. “This flea is you and I, and this/ Our marriage bed, and marriage temple is” (Donne, lines 12-13)
3. “Just so much honor, when thou yield’st to me,/ Will waste, as this flea’s death took life from thee” (Donne, lines 26-27)
– each quotation should have a separate analysis
– the analysis includes what the quote means in the context of the text AND how it is relevant to the thesis
conclusion
– rewriting the thesis
– transition sentences
– a general statement that is impactful and is related to the topic
ADDITIONAL THINGS FOR THE ANALYSIS PORTION OF THE ESSAY
– mention that Donne was a promiscuous man himself (the biographical context of the poem – how it relates to Donne as a person) ALSO distinctly separate Donne from the speaker of the poem
– The Flea was written not for publication, but for Donne’s circle of friends (and maybe that’s why he wasn’t afraid to use such crude language and metaphors)
– it was published in the late Victorian era when society was extremely rigid in its views around sex and virginity – which makes Donne seem even more perverse when the speaker of his poem infers that virginity is of little importance to the woman

I need an essay talking about how Overpopulation is Underrated (or if you choose, misunderstood). Sources should be reliable. At least one quote should be in the essay too. I have a rubric attached regarding how the essay needs to be written, so if I brought out anything major (which I probably did) then the rubric will be there. This essay isn’t technically due tomorrow, however as we’re required to bring in a complete publish, I just might as well bring in the complete paper if possible. Also please, no plagiarism!

Recommended Solution Paper: 2250-2550 words (excluding references), minimum of

Recommended Solution Paper: 2250-2550 words (excluding references), minimum of 8 scholarly sources
Having identified a problem, established its significance, researched the literature surrounding the issue, and articulated a relevant research question, you can now begin the “Recommended Solution” paper. The purpose of the paper is to analyze potential solution options, and develop and argue a recommendation to address the problem. The students identify, explain, exemplify and evaluate the effectiveness of solutions used by other case examples (e.g. countries, organizations, programs) that have tried to address the problem in different contexts (you need a minimum of 4 solutions, each to be developed in a separate paragraph). You can organize the paper in the following way, beginning each paragraph with a topic sentence that refers to the main idea of the paragraph:
Conceptual Framework: The purpose of the conceptual framework paragraph is to define the concept of ‘sustainable development’ in order to determine the necessary principles for a sustainable solution for your problem. The concept of sustainable development frames the way you think about solutions. Use strong scholarly sources that define the concept, integrate and quote good definitions, interpreting and highlighting the principles of sustainability in each quotation. You may use Emas, Harrington, Simonis and/or any other scholarly source to help you define the concept of ‘sustainable development,’ as relevant to your topic. The principles of sustainable development you identify would be used to determine how sustainable your solutions are. End your paragraph with a strong thesis statement that outlines the solutions you propose.
Method: The purpose of this paragraph is to tell the reader what research method you are using in your paper. You are not using an interview, a survey, an experiment, or an observation method. In this assignment, we are using ‘the case analysis method’ to identify solutions. State your research method and mention the particular cases you will be analyzing to develop the solutions in your paragraphs.
Solution Analysis: This section consists of a minimum of 4 paragraphs, each revolving around 1 solution which you have extracted from your case analysis.
Body paragraph 1:
Articulate the successful solution/strategy in a topic sentence.
Explain the solution in your words; categorize the main idea into sub-ideas, if possible, developing each in turn.
Analyze examples from multiple cases (e.g. countries, programs, organizations, schools – whatever is appropriate for your topic) to demonstrate how the solution was successfully implemented.
Some questions that may guide your case analysis include:
Why was the solution(s) adopted by X country/organization/program successful?
What was the internal and external environment within which the solution worked?
Was the solution costly? Was this a challenge? How was this challenge overcome?
What was the size/scope of success achieved?
Argue for the effectiveness of the solution, using relevant theories/research studies from scholarly literature, and addressing the counter-positions, if necessary.
Body paragraph 2: Repeated structure for the second solution/strategy
Body paragraph 3: Repeated structure for the third solution/strategy
Body paragraph 4: Repeated structure for the fourth solution/strategy
Recommendation: Focusing on the country (Egypt in our case) you developed evidence that the problem exists within (in the Problem Analysis),
synthesize an overall recommendation, arguing for successful implementation of the solutions. Your implementation plan has to be:
feasible within the country’s context and challenges you identified in the Problem Analysis (e.g. stigma, socio-economic gaps, political conflict, lack of governmental funding, mindset, worldview, traditions, gender roles, etc.), and
sustainable, based on the principles of sustainability which you have identified in the conceptual framework.
Here are some guiding questions:
What would be the process to implement your solutions/strategies? Would they be implemented together or are there phases of implementation?
How would the solutions address the challenges you mentioned in the PA?
Why does the recommended solution fit Egypt in particular?
How would your recommendation work towards fair and equitable structures (e.g. across generations, gender, socio-economic level, religion, power status)?
How would your recommendation ensure ‘long-term’ positive impact?
How would your recommendation recognize the integration of all dimensions of sustainability? Is there any harm caused by your solutions?
How would your recommendation benefit from partnerships across sectors (e.g. businesses, schools, government, NGOs, industry, etc.)?
How would your recommendation abide by ethical constraints? Are there any gray zones or conflicts of interest?
Conclusion for both papers (PA & RS):
Mention the problem/topic your PA paper examined.
Briefly summarize the definition, the reasons, effects and challenges of the problem.
Briefly summarize the four cases that you analyzed.
Mention the recommended plan for Egypt.
Connect the solution to the SDGs and call to action.
Check that you have written coherently and grammatically, citing your sources correctly and completely in APA style. Make sure your paraphrase of ideas is in your own words and that you cite the source for any ideas or words quoted, paraphrased or summarized from external sources.
That is the paper outline. Please. I will attach the Problem Analysis paper so that you can take a look on it when writing the conclusion or the paper as a whole
