Gene Aiello EN 101-23 February 7, 2013 The Art of Eating Spaghetti After reading “The Art of Eating Spaghetti,” by Russell Baker who writes about his experience with English courses and how most of the assignments seemed like very boring and laborious tasks. Relating to Baker was very easy, for I too found English and its assignments very brutal, especially in high school. The dry, boring teachers the out dated reads, and the assignments associated to those readings. All of those turned me off to writing, but I like Baker had a hidden knack and a passion to express myself in written form. When I read the title to this reading I made an assumption that the whole story would be on “The Art of Eating Spaghetti”.
The first thing I notices with the design is the colors are neutral which the viewer for having eye strain trying to maneuver their way through the website. In many cases most website are way too busy and can make navigate much harder than it has to be adding more time and no site maps with a confusing layout. The usability of Kudler food is great just because user interface is clean and to the point with no flashy graphic of effects that take away from the information that is being presented. But the website could do better if various types of brands they carry where listed giving more promoting to the products they have with adding links into the website where use can inquire more information. The draw backs to Kudler foods are in the most unlikely places with not displaying the same great quality and severs throughout the whole company in planning for financial control and human resources that contributes to high payroll costs and lack of financial know how will be the down fall of Kudler foods because there is no management or real focus to ones duties as a whole team
Next morning when Jim finds out that Alena is an extremist vegetarian, he does not hesitate to lie about being a vegetarian also. The author uses verbal irony to show his desire to identify with her. “I don’t eat meat myself, […] or actually, not anymore’ – since the pastrami sandwich, that is- […]” (Boyle 573). Jim surprises not only the reader, but also himself when he finds himself marching down the street with a placard and even later gets knocked out by a former kick boxer chauffeur. Jim’s actions are exactly the opposite with what the reader is led to expect from the description of Jim and his fondness of meat.
He scoffed at us. The whole experience, volunteering at the Kiss-A-Pig Auction, was rewarding in that I learned much more about the disorder. It was not so much the statistics, numbers that I heard from the people who gave speeches, it was hearing first-hand accounts that taught me how much of an issue diabetes is to Americans today. Seeing numbers and hearing experiences are two different
Luis takes each and every opportunity to teach Ramon about the way of life and hard work. Marta wants to bring Ramon to Disneyland, but Luis believes that it is much too expensive and would not teach Ramon another than cartoons. They notice a commercial for A&W Root Beer being filmed on the pier and Marta insists on watching even though Luis is uncomfortable by the actors. Luis then takes Ramon to buy a hotdog, but when the fry cook asks what he would like on the hot dog in English, Luis is not able to communicate because he only knows Spanish. After a few frustrating moments, Ramon answers the fry cook in English.
I believe that Atwood ends story B with “and everything continues as in A” because most of us want a happy ending to stories, especially if the title is “Happy Endings”. As soon as you read the second paragraph you look back at the first paragraph and compare. Both paragraphs are pretty straight forward; the characterization is very under developed. John and Mary are stereotypes of the American dream in the first paragraph and in the second it reads like a script for “days of our lives”. In the second paragraph she writes in third person the all of sudden switches to second person and say “you’ll notice he doesn’t even consider her worth the price of a dinner out”(Atwood 445).
The beef noodle that my friend cooked was nowhere near the pho that a lot of Americans can enjoy. It was bun bo Hue which was a very spicy kind noodle that we were also very proud of but cannot introduce much to the world because it had much of shrimp sauce in it. When you put shrimp sauce into the pot of boiling broth, the vaporizing steam brings out the smell of the sauce so strongly and fiercely that when you invite friends for home cooked bun bo Hue, you don’t have to give them the address, just tell them the street name and they will find your house correctly. My foxy friend put a very generous amount of shrimp sauce into his cunning plan and his poor next door neighbor raised up a sign of home for sale in no longer than a few month
However, Adams remarks that he (the pizza dude) is on a journey and everyone should let him pass safely to deliver his pizzas to the many that have ordered. The second topic Sarah Adams gave is empathy, Sarah states that everyone has taken a job that they are not fond of or were respected at because they need money. This is a very good point; many young people work at gas stations and earn very little money and work hard. Sarah says that since the pizza dude has a bad job, he shouldn’t be blamed for it rather looked at with empathy. The third topic goes into honor, she remarks about how some big important businessmen are corrupt.
I missed the sweet aroma of French fries from McDonalds and longed to hear the sound of the fries being dropped in the sizzling oil. The only thing hindering me from living the life of a normal student was my Arrhythmia. It had gone undiagnosed until my fateful experience at the soccer field. My heart condition was the only thing holding me back from living life to the fullest. Eating fast food would be unhealthy and cause complications, but what was even worse was my love for the game of soccer was forced to end because extraneous activities could trigger a heart
During my trip to Greece, I familiarized myself with the culture, history, and food so that I could navigate the country efficiently. As I packed for my trip to Greece last week, I realized that I knew nothing about these three key things. I did a little bit of research, but realized that I would not be able to truly understand until I experienced it. I assumed stereotypes for Greeks: they used to believe in mythological gods, they built great architectural wonders, and they loved varieties of food and drink. Walking into the country, I realized that I must throw aside those assumptions and get my hands dirty to find out the roots and truths of the country.
