Anzaldua Inquiry The text written by Anzaldua is a patchwork, “an assemblage, a montage, a beaded work, … a crazy dance.” To create this medley, Anzaldua uses a variety of culture-specific language, literature, and references. Throughout the whole piece she switches the language between a mixture of English and Chicano Spanish. When speaking about what her native tongue is, Anzaldua refers to the corridos that were popular, such as the ones about John F. Kennedy and his death; she tells how it was frowned upon to like the ethnic music, but she enjoyed the corridos very much. These reflect the dual cultural structures interlocking into one. Through stories, Anzaldua establishes herself as an outsider.

Today, the north end of Roanoke Island is regularly visited by historians and archaeologists hoping to uncover new evidence as to the fate of the colony. So far, none has been forthcoming. The post and the tree bearing the carvings have long since vanished, although many of the live oaks in the National Historic Site were seedlings during the colonists tenure. No archaeological clues as to the whereabouts of the Cittie of Raleigh have ever been uncovered, and the 500-acre park remains mostly an enigma, apropos to the events that unfolded here 400 years
Thesis: Anne Lamott’s essay ‘Shitty First Drafts’ is an excellent piece of work which helps amateur writers change their perspective of the writing process. Lamott disputes the misconception that successful writers simply sit down and churn out fully formed passages and chapters. Instead, she suggests that nearly every writer, no matter how successful, writes what she calls a “shitty first draft.” In fact, Lamott suggests that a shitty first draft is an almost obligatory starting point. She recalls writing restaurant reviews for California magazine. Her reviews would take shape only after she gave herself permission to write a terrible first draft.
After watching about an hour’s worth of commercials after that one, I knew that I would not be able to find a better example of propaganda. Though this commercial was a waste of about 2 minutes of my life, I can remember every last detail about it, considering that I watched it and took notes on it about 5 times, thank goodness for TiVo! As I recall the commercial started out with a couple all snuggled up on the couch watching T.V., when all of sudden a commercial for a love accuracy test came on. The girl being curious decided to text in both her name and his, which after doing so she got a immediate response

"The argument that all these young people would turn up to play video games and think, 'Oh by the way, I must borrow that book by Dostoyevsky' — it seems ludicrous to me." Others argue that reinvention is a matter of survival in an age when Google Inc. has made the reference desk almost obsolete and printed books are beginning to look more like antique collectibles. The number of books checked out by the average public library user dropped nearly 6% between 1997 and 2007, according to the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Book checkouts at the New York Public Library alone plunged by 1 million volumes in the most recent fiscal year. At the 540,000-square-foot Central Library in downtown Los Angeles — the largest public research library west of the Mississippi — few visitors wander the main floors where most of the building's 2 million books are kept.
Homer and the Trojan War Homer’s epic poem detailing the events of the Trojan War is renowned throughout the world. Homer most likely wrote the Iliad in the eighth or ninth century, B.C., several hundred years after the war is supposed to have taken place. Much of it is no doubt more fiction than fact. There is, for example, no evidence that the great warrior Achilles or even the beautiful queen Helen existed. However, most scholars agree that Troy itself was no imaginary city.
