Elizabethian time was the Era of superstition to say the least. In the most the common setting, superstition played a factor in civilian’s everyday lives. Elizabethians believed that physically saying “god bless you” following a sneeze would prevent the devil from entering your body when opening your mouth. Other superstitions such as having your shoes on a table, having hold of a peacock feather, passing by a black cat, and spilling table salt or pepper were also considered to be bad luck. Women in the kitchen believed it was unlucky to stir the pot counterclockwise while cooking.
In the short story, “Bluebeard” by Charles Perrault, curiosity gets Bluebeard’s wife in a great deal of trouble. Bluebeard gives his wife all of the keys to the house that would allow her access to all rooms but he has one stipulation and that is that she is not to enter the forbidden closet. Eventually Bluebeard’s wife gives in to her own curiosity and opens the room to find a room full of dead women. This short story is an example of curiosity used foolishly. First of all, Bluebeard’s wife is forewarned that if she disobeys his order he will be full of anger and resentment.
As children, the Party brainwashed females so they believed that a way to obtain loyalty towards the Party happened through chastity. If loyalty did not occur through chastity, the consequence that one would face lays in the Ministry of Truth. Julia faces these consequences, only to realize "Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling. … Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship.” (Orwell 272). Although Julia took advantage of her freedom to love, the Party quickly took it away because procreation remains a duty for the Party only.

Running head: Check Your Perception Jamie Schee Module 3, Assignment Grand Canyon University Com 101 Instructor: Calvin Habig September 20, 2009 Check Your Perception Many of us go through our life going on our first interpretation of another individual(s), and there are times when our assumptions are accurate, but there are also some instances when these assumptions are wrong as well. In the text book ‘Looking Out looking in,’ Ronald B. Adler and Russell F. Proctor give their readers a great insight on how we perceive others and ways or steps we as communicators can use these techniques to a greater advantage. Perception checking is a great technique and tool we can use to progress our communication skills. I want to begin with the three steps of perception checking. According to Ronald Adler and Russell Proctor, “A complete perception check has three parts: A description of the behavior you noticed At least two possible interpretations of the behavior A request for clarification about how to interpret the behavior” (page.106).
That’s why it was so hard for her to keep the secret of the died teacher from her family. (“Sue why don’t you eat you’ve been acting strange lately?” asked sues mother. “May I be excused please?” sue said as she raced up the stairs preventing the conversation to continue.) After a while sue wanted to just tell the truth and do the right thing, but her friends who were also responsible for the murder had threatened sue with her life if she told the cops what really happened. So out of fear she kept her mouth shut for as long as she could.
Playing with Pestilence Imagine waking up in the morning knowing that this may be the last time you ever wake up. Your whole family has died except for your precious daughter, whom you isolate in a room to prevent her from getting sick. The Black Death is not all to blame, as the typhoid fever is also making a hit. Your daughter hollers that she is thirsty, so you run to the water pump to appeal to her need. Little do you know that you just gave her the water that would soon kill her.
Young children are the ones who are most on social media and they see so many advertisements it is unbelievable. Companies target children because they are too young to know the truth about what they are really eating. Children don’t care about how many calories or how much sugar s in a bowl of Lucky Charms cereal, for example. But, there is only one group that can make their children stop them from eating this, the parents. Parents have the power to not make their children eat junk food and to decrease the chances of their child ending up with a long term illness.
There are many different ways to discipline a young child. Most parents know that distraction is one of the first things you learn to do as a parent of a mobile child. If your baby is touching something dangerous you say “no that will hurt you”, or “you don’t touch that, how about this train it’s yours.” When that baby turns into a toddler, and is swinging from the racks at the store after you repeatedly tell them not
