Yet by the end, we read about women’s prisons coming into effect and a brutal push for the right to have an abortion. This kind of juxtaposition, seen in only a dozen pages, tells of decades of history and the never-ending struggle for equality, and it made me proud to say that this is where my kind has started to believe in themselves.

Case No. 1: Countrywide Loan Officer convicted of Mortgage Fraud charges Summary Between January 2005 and December 2007, Paige Kinney, aka Jamie Lee Lawler, a mortgage loan officer for Countrywide Home Loans, played a major role in a mortgage fraud scheme that amounted to $40 million in fraudulent loans and targeted both the company she worked for and other several lenders. The way the scheme would process consisted of gathering straw buyers to purchase the intended properties, in which they did not have any intention to live in or be responsible for the loan payment. Kinney would then obtain mortgage financing for the buyers and properties, by forging and modifying their documents, for which the lenders would attribute loans that exceeded the sales prices of the homes. That excess between sales price and loan amount, called “cash-back” would then be redirected to Kinney’s bank account, and would be used for personal expenses, make mortgage payments, and compensate the “buyers,” among other things.
Cleante’s ideological views, while enlightening, are often ignored by those who are directly in conflict with Tartuffe’s character, thus Cleante must exercise rationality at every chance he gets. Molière’s inclusion of Cleante, along with Dorine, eventually creates a foundation upon which Orgon’s family, as a whole, views Tartuffe as a hypocrite. This foundation is critical to the exposure to Tartuffe’s true nature. Cleante’s firm stance on reason can be attributed to his desire to avoid violence at all costs. Not only does Cleante assume it his duty to avoid conflict, he also attempts to persuade the other characters to view the situation from his neutral standpoint – one of which allows him to judge without bias.
Topic Analysis - The Taming of the Shrew The Taming of the Shrew, a comical, romantic play by William Shakespeare, brings an element of submission that was quite common in the 18th and 19th centuries. The Taming of the Shrew focuses "on the battle between the sexes and on the process by which a strong-willed woman is made to submit to the control of her husband” (Greenblatt et al). There are many opinions when it comes to whether Kate, the shrew, simply just submitted to Petruccio’s control or whether she successfully resisted his control. This paper will seek to prove that Kate submitted to Petruccio’s control as he sought to tame her into the woman she eventually becomes. Kate, who does not want to marry Petruccio, goes from an ill tempered, stubborn woman who does not like to be controlled, to a woman who is loyal and obedient to her husband.
