Waverly’s restrained childhood years shaped her into the assertive person she later transformed into as an adult. These characteristics came from major points described in The Joy Luck Club written by Amy Tan. Waverly’s experiences in the limelight as a child chess prodigy; an insufficient relationship with her mother; and her developing rivalry with Jing-Mei all lead to her independent, competitive, stubborn, snobby, and forceful personality. Waverly isn’t entirely self-centered, however, as she proves to love her daughter, Shoshana, unconditionally. Winning chess tournaments as a child and eventually building a profitable career as a tax attorney, Waverly has always been a model of success.

This is perfectly normal in a courtroom and brings back some order for the reader. However as the reader carries on, it is clear that Carroll is juxtaposing the formality of the courtroom, “all the jurors were writing down 'Stupid things!'”. Here Carroll is using eccentricity to present to the audience how literal and formal the jurors usually are and how it can make them become confused if they don’t relax a little. Carroll is also bringing up the issue of identity again in this chapter, “for fear they should forget them before the end of the trial”, showing that it is not only Alice who struggles with finding her identity in Wonderland. By doing this, Carroll also provides a link back to the beginning of the book and carries on the theme running throughout of identity.
It just depends on how the rest of the cards fall. What starts out as a strong hand, could easily be turned into the weakest with the turn of the flop (the first three cards turned on the table). The announcers at the World Poker Tour (WPT) are very helpful to the spectators. As Texas Hold’em is played, the announcers use a lot of the poker jargon, explaining each round of betting as the game progresses. To begin with, you are dealt two cards, your pocket hand, and the pre-flop betting begins.

The Power of Lara Croft: Feminist Figure or Sex Object? “Lara is everything that is bad about representations of women in culture, and everything good…” (182). This is ultimately the response that Maja Mikula gives in her essay Gender and Videogames: the Political Valency of Lara Croft to the question pertaining Lara Croft being either a feminist icon or sexist fantasy in the video game Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. An answer similar to what her creator, Toby Gard, held in his interview with The Face magazine: “Neither and a bit of both.” For the feminists, Lara has potential to project a positive image and a role model aura; yet she is limited to being a sex symbol. It is a question that is often reduced to trying to decide whether she is a positive role model for young girls or just a perfect and artificial embodiment of a male sexual fantasy for the boys.

ETHICAL ISSUES In the movie HER, Samantha is a fictional operating system. Sam, that’s her nickname, she organizes your emails and calendar for you, she proof reads your letters and she completes that book proposal you’ve always been meaning to finish. She really became a good companion for the lonely Theodore Thombly and supplies a romantic music composition for him. This is the idea that a super-intelligent bodiless computer would seek romance with a squishy glorified primate seems sort of odd. Would an AI really be able to make a deep emotional connection with a being who thinks millions of times more slowly than it does, and who lives such a radically different existence from its unbounded, silicon and fiber-optic universe?
