anon. 6/9/2013 Communication is Key In Kwame Appiahs’ essay “Making Conversation” and “The Primary of Practice”, he talks about “cosmopolitanism”; which is everyone together; “citizens of the cosmos” (68). In “Making Conversation” Appiah breaks it down by telling us about the cynics (68), two different strands that connect cosmopolitanism, and then he goes on to give an example of Hitler and Stalin to prove to us a history behind cosmopolitanism. “The Primary of Practice” is a little different. Appiah says “language helps shape common responses” (73).
The first metafictional device that is used in both texts is the idea of a story about a writer who creates a story. In the film Stranger than Fiction, Karen Eiffel is a writer who writes a story about a man called Harold Crick without knowing she is doing it. This is a metafictional device because the fictional movie is about a writer, Karen Eiffel, who is writing a story about a man named Harold Crick. Café Society is a metafictional text as the author of the short story imagines a number of scenarios that she writes down but are not real. Both texts are also about a story that has narrating in it as Stranger than Fiction has the writer, Karen Eiffel, narrating parts of Harold’s life as she

John F. Kennedy states, “Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there.” The deliberate use of “and” shows that when we get to space, the outcomes are limitless. Reaching space will open many new doors to new opportunities. It will have a ripple effect, one new discovery leading to another. The repetition of “and” develops a continual flow, seeming that the sentence and success and opportunities for the U.S.A. may go on for forever. In conclusion, anaphora, the use of metaphors, and asyndenton all aid in President John F. Kennedy's speech that the United of States should extend the space program.

Running head: A NARRATIVE ON HOWARD GARDNER The Road to Multiple Intelligences: A Narrative on Howard Gardner Sheila Thomas Capella University Address: 4901 Far Hills Avenue, D-1 City, State, Zip: Kettering, OH 45429 Phone: 937-626-7145 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Advisor: Heidi Kopacek Degree: PhD Abstract Although the idea of multiple intelligences is not new, some consider Howard Gardner the father of multiple intelligences (MI) theory. Through a synthesis of literature reviews, this paper narrates the profound events in Gardner’s upbringing, political, social, and educational background that helped shape his ideas, theories, and utility for MI. Outlined and discussed are the seven intelligences and the eight criteria for defining a new intelligence. Also given platform is the lack of empirical evidence for MI theory. This paper culminates with a glimpse at MI implemented in 21st century classrooms and suggestions for establishing a MI learning environment.
The Qur’an and the Expanding Universe The ‘cosmological expansion’ has within the last century become a theory that has broken considerable ground, I am thinking of the famous Sir Arthur Eddington and his classic ‘The Expanding Universe’ published by Pelican Books already in 1940 (which I am right now holding in my hand) to a number of modern works; particularly some of my favourites, like the numerous works of Stephen Hawking and the lesser known Simon Singh in his book ‘Big Bang’, to George Smoot and Keay Davidson, Wrinkles in Time: The Imprint of Creation, 1993: 42-65 and John Gibbin’s, Science: A History, 1543-2001, 2002: 572-612, to another magnificent written work: ‘The Five Stages of the Universe’ by Fred Adams and Greg Laughlin. Due to the popularity of the concept it ought not to surprise us that a range of Muslim exponents, have as usual attempted to create links between this modern concept and certain Qur’anic statements. However, these are not easily correlated. If we bother studying the scientific postulate, the ‘expansion’ includes time, space and matter expanding from an almost infinite hot cosmological state of fused matter and energy, that emerged through the time-length of a 300.000 year long process from one or possible two preliminary Big Bang type events, namely: the expansion of a highly hypothetical singularity state to another highly hypothetical inflation that evolved the present universe from its pre-conditional state of an orange size chaos state. Yet, contrary the claim of this Qur’an=Modern scientific enterprise movement, this is not the cosmological concept described in the Qur’an at all.
