He worked in an office as a lawyer, an occupation that didn’t raise interest or admiration of others. All he did was sit in an office all day. On top of all that, he wore glasses and was practically blind in his left eye. When Scout asked Miss Maudie what Atticus could do, Miss Maudie told her that he was the best checker player in town and that he could play the Jews harp, which didn’t impress Scout. Although, when Atticus shot Tim Johnson, the mad dog, Jem and Scout were beaming with pride and after learning that he used to be the best shot in Maycomb and of his nickname “Ol’ One Shot”, they admired Atticus more than ever.
You could not find a soul purer than the one of our lumbering friend Lennie’s. It is always clear to the reader, that whenever Lennie causes harm, he either doesn’t recognize it for what it is, or he is deeply sorry for his actions. Lennie is the least dynamic character in the book. He undergoes no changes, and the characteristics that apply to him when we first encounter him can be used throughout the whole book. George is not as flat a character as Lennie.
For many, English is not their primary language. Barry is ServSafe® certified and tries his best to keep up with food safety issues in the kitchen but he admits it’s not easy. Employees receive “on the job training” about food safety basics (for example, appropriate hygiene and hand washing, time/temperature, and cleaning and sanitizing). But with high turnover of employees, training is often rushed and some new employees are put right into the job without training if it is a busy day. Eventually, most employees get some kind of food safety training.

Herman Melville is the author responsible to writing Bartleby the Scrivener; a story about a copyist whose former employer is responsible for his lack of communication toward not only his boss and co-workers but society as whole. When Bartleby is first hired the lawyer is ecstatic about the great job Bartleby is doing and is happy that he causes no trouble at all. This excitement begins to disappear when Bartleby starts to answer most of the lawyers request with a simple “I’d prefer not”. Melville does a tremendous job at showing the readers how Bartleby’s past employer is affecting his current job and life choices without introducing exactly what it was that Bartleby did at his former job. Bartleby is the key to this story.
The collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008 was not an event that happened overnight, but a culmination of ethical lapses and corporate greed over the course of a few years. Richard Fuld, CEO, was known to be stubborn and ambitious. He created a cult-like culture1 within the business whereby he expects absolute loyalty from employees with a ‘no questions asked’ attitude. Risk-takers were often lauded and rewarded handsomely. There was no checks in place to manage the risk undertook.
ENG 1D1-04 14 October 2014 A Proper Role Model Character Analysis of Atticus Finch In Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus Finch is empathetic and respectful towards others’ privacy, resulting in him being a positive role model as Scout matures. Atticus Finch is a lawyer who lives in Maycomb County, and is also Jem and Scout’s widower father. His morals and values are much more different than the other citizens in Maycomb, making him very unique in the town. After a not so good first day at school, with contradicting her teacher, Miss Caroline Fisher’s every word and getting punished, Scout does not want to go to school. After Atticus comes home later that day, he teaches her a lesson about empathy.
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view…Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,” Atticus (Lee 30). Likewise, when Bob Ewell spat into Atticus’ face, Atticus considered that by doing nothing, he can save the Ewell children from another beating. In short, Atticus considers all factors before making a decision. Moreover, Atticus is wise because he has a clever mind and tongue. For example, during the Tom Robinson trial, Atticus worded his speech so well that it took the juries a few hours to decide a verdict.
The novel ’Boy’ written by Roald Dahl is in relation to the different stages throughout his childhood. Roald Dahl exaggerates “an autobiography is regarding boring details throughout there life and I would never write such boring details about myself.” (Introduction Page) I strongly disagree that all the adults in this book are portrayed as ogres. An ogre is described as an unpleasant and horrible person by Roald Dahl. I strongly disagree because the adults throughout the stages of his childhood including his mother (Sophie Magdalene Hesselberg) and Dr Dunbar are very pleasant and easy going people. Although I agree that some adults like Mrs Pratchett and Mr Coombes are portrayed as ogres because they are very horrible and they do not respect Dahl and his friends.
He starts the book with an example of how a boss converted his 314 employees who were having a horrible time with their jobs to good hard working employees who love to come to the office everyday and give their best performance. Dale Carnegie has based his whole book into a major 30 principles which help us in understanding more about how to communicate effectively.
