Comparing "Taming of the Shrew" to "Deliver us from Eva"
In Taming of the Shrew we are introduced to Katherine; a shrew or a ill tempered woman that needs to be tamed or managed by the character Petruchio. She puts up a fight but eventually gives in. In the 2003 movie “ Deliver us from Eva” Eva is the oldest sister of the Dandridge sister. All sisters except Eva are in relationships and Eva always meddles in their love lives. The Sisters partners are tired of having Eva always in their business so they set her up with the local playboy in order to get Eva out of the way so they can have better relationships with the other sisters. They pay so he can make Eva fall for him and move away then dump her in some far away place so she can be out of their lives. She falls for him and they end up together. Both "Taming of the Shrew" and "Deliver us from Eva" show that a relationship can only work if the one person can have complete dominance over the other.
Now, by my mother's son, and that's myself,
It shall be moon, or star, or what I list,
Or ere I journey to your father's house.
Go on, and fetch our horses back again.
Evermore cross'd and cross'd; nothing but cross'd!
Say as he says, or we shall never go.
Forward, I pray, since we have come so far,
And be it moon, or sun, or what you please:
An if you please to call it a rush-candle,
Henceforth I vow it shall be so for me.
(Page 187, Act 4, Scene 5, line 15)
In this part of the book Katherine, Petruchio and Hortensio; Petruchio servant are on there way to Katherine's sister wedding. Petruchio says that the moon is out and Katherine says that the sun is out and Petruchio gives her an ultimatum and she submits and goes along with what he says. The sun is actually out This scene in the book shows how Petruchio has control over Katherine and that's how he was able to get her to summit so that not only he can get his way, but so they can get to their destination. It takes having complete dominance over someone to have the kind of power that Petruchio does; to get his wife to submit and give in so quick. They both were able to get what they wanted just by her giving in.
Ray plays mind game with Eva Just like Petruchio but it was more to get her attention and make her want him then to get her to be completely submissive.
Ray tells Eva that he has a girlfriend,when in fact he doesn’t have a girlfriend hes just wants her to want him even more. It ends up working because after this she is all he thinks about and the next time they see each other, he asks her on a date and she ask about his girlfriend but he tells her that he doesn't have one anymore and she buys it. Eva just like Katherine gives in because of the tacit that Ray used on her. He was able to have complete control over to the point of her being jealous and only thinking about him. This lead to being able to take her on a date later on.
Now looking another quote from the book we are introduced to about tacit used by Petruchio to have dominance over Katharine.
First kiss me, Kate, and we will.
What, in the midst of the street?
What, art thou ashamed of me?
No, sir, God forbid; but ashamed to kiss.
Why, then let's home again. Come, sirrah, let's away.
Nay, I will give thee a kiss: now pray thee, love, stay.
(Page 205,Act 5, Scene 2, line 145-154)
Just like the quote from the book before you see Petruchio giving Kate ( Katharine) a ultamadem. She submits to this one again, so she doesn’t have to go home and be able to stay for the wedding. This shows the control Petruchio has over her,to get her to do what he says. They both get what they want as well.
The next scene in the movie Ray arrives late to the date with Eva on purpose.
Ray arrives late to his date with Eva, which makes eva mad but then he he hands her flowers and she is putty in his hands in a way. He used the tacit of arriving late to make her want him even more. She wouldn't say no to him since one he gets flowers to woo her and take over and plus she has been waiting this long to be with he couldn’t possibly give to up. He knows this and that's why he arrives late; knowing the control he has over her.
In conclusion, Ray and Petruchio use mind games and other tactics to have complete control over their woman. What they do work Kate ends to be calm a well behaved woman to the end and the same happens to Eva. Even though Ray admits the plan that the sisters partners had in the beginning and also falling in love with her, he still ends up changing her and making her less of an ill tempered woman. Both the movie and the book show that in order for the relationship work one partner needs to have dominance or full control over the other person
“Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl, lives with her father, Wink, in the Bathtub, a southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink's tough love prepares her for the unraveling of the universe; for a time when he's no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, nature flies out of whack, temperatures rise, and the ice caps melt, unleashing an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs. With the waters rising, the aurochs coming, and Wink's health fading, Hushpuppy goes in search of her lost mother.” -- Written by Sundance Film Festival
The Mako Mori test:
a) At least one female character
b) Who gets her own narrative arc
She is the main character and the movie is about her.
c) That is not about supporting a man's story.
Her father more so supports her story arc and all the people around support her story arc as well being as though she is the main chacher.
My Film test review
My film test review will be called … It will have more than one person of color, that has their own plot line and is not looked at as the token black friend or token ethnic friend. They are not to be overly loud and deemed angry at the world. I want them to be curious about the world and live in a loving community. They will not act as the stereotypes that are placed on them by the world.
“Dear Diary, I started skipping meals again. I feel fat and ugly and I just want to die. I am worthless. I don’t deserve to live, I take up space that could be used for someone who is pretty and a better person. I think if I died today the world be better off without me…”
This is a diary entry I wrote. I never told anyone about this and I had never planned to. I guess it’s because I thought no one would understand. Now it’s time to try and make them understand.
Let me start by saying that the worst feeling in life is that death is the only way to rid yourself of pain. Once death resonates in your mind it never leaves. It followed me wherever I went and living with that burden is extremely hard to deal with. Constant questions swarmed my head. “When does the feeling go away? What did I do to deserve this punishment?”
I know these feelings all too well. I live through this nauseating pain of feeling like death is my only way out of the constant darkness I’m feeling. For a very long time, I wanted to hide from what I was feeling. I thought all the scary thoughts would go away and I would get better over time. Ignoring how I felt is something I did regularly. I didn’t want to acknowledge that something could be wrong with me. Thinking that there was something wrong with my mind made me on the edge and I thought I wasn’t normal. I am now a 16 year old junior in high school struggling to find reasons to live. My existence is something I constantly question. I always ask myself whether my life was worth living.
I recently tried to commit suicide and that lead to me being in a mental hospital. I have attempted suicide twice in my life and I never told anybody about the first one, until the second attempt happen. It was a normal day for some but for me, life was becoming a burden that I couldn’t carry around any longer. I took my brother to school and the whole time I had this empty feeling. I felt that I didn’t belong and overall, I was so exhausted with all the mixed emotions I had going on in my mind. I tried to jump in the train tracks but there was too many people around so I stopped myself. I was completely zoned out for the remainder of the day. I couldn’t focus in school and I didn’t know how to just come out and say I tried to kill myself. How do you do just tell someone, hey I feel like dying or I tried to kill myself today. I was a danger to myself and needed medical attention. I wanted to hide from these feelings and ignore them. Last thing I thought about doing was explaining it.
I remember saying to my mentor Mr.Kay “I’m really scared of myself and I don't trust myself anymore. I’m afraid that I’ll do something to harm myself again…”
I mustered up enough courage and told Mr.Kay, who then told Ms. Siswick, which lead to me being placed in a mental hospital. Going into the hospital I had no idea how to explain to my mom what was going on in my head, who was just hearing about my suicidal thoughts. I couldn't find the right words to describe my constant loneliness. Our conversation did no justice for me or her. It was something like
“ Why do you feel like this?”
“ I just don’t feel important in life, like the world doesn’t need me.”
“I don’t understand why… like what made you feel this way?”
Frankly, I couldn’t explain what I was going through enough to where she would understand. I came to the conclusion that no one will understand how feel. I started feeling angry with myself, because I couldn’t explain the thoughts that lead to my suicide attempts. Even now I don’t ever think I can come up with the right words to describe what my thought process was during my suicide attempt. In the hospital I thought maybe I could learn to better explain my feelings.
There's this stigma related to mental hospitals and it’s nothing like the movies say. There are no straight jackets or padded rooms. It’s like being in a college dorm that you can’t leave from. My first day there was a wave of questions.
“Why are you here?”
“ How are you feeling today?”
“ How come you feel suicidal?”
“ Why don’t you like the way you look?”
“ You don’t feel important, why?”
Questions after question, no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t seem to answer any. There were kids there my ages, some younger and some older. The children in there were either there for anger or because they were suscial themselves. The suicidal ones understood my reasoning and I didn’t need to explain myself for them. They just knew the battle I was fighting. We were all fighting a battle with our minds. Nothing about it was like jail like people make it seem. You go to school you can have play time. There are groups that help with coping techniques. Being there was nothing like I expected it to be and I wasn’t going to hide being there from anyone.
Coming out of the hospital I tried so hard to explain what it’s like in a mental hospital and my reasoning for being there. Once again I realized that I could explain that process enough for them to understand. I felt like I just got done war and now I had to answer all these questions about it. How do people from war explain their experiences to others who have not gone through it. Reminds me of a book called “The Things They Carried.” The main character Tim and another character names Bartle go through something similar as me. Bartle has been through a lot and seen some pretty horrendous things and one doesn't want to talk about it and doesn’t know how to talk about. Tim has a hard time trying to explain what happen in the war and why it’s happening to people who don’t understand it. I feel like a war soilder who has fought a bloody and gruesome war, a war with oneself, and now has to talk about the details.
Just like these men I can’t seem to find the words to explain it to people who don’t understand death. I came to the conclusion that death becomes apart of everyone's life and in some extent we will all be connected by that. For people like myself, death becomes your best friend and your worst enemy. It follows you and haunts you every single day. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to find the words to explain to people how my depression and suicidal thoughts take over me. I’m not sure, I have to though. I realized I was doing it all wrong. I don’t need for people to understand my situation. It was more so accepting it as being apart of me and knowing that yes,I am going through this and damn right it’s extremely difficult. No one knows what it’s like until they go through it. They can only sympathize with you and give you support. I realized I was looking for support from others and not for them to understand my situation.
Many Americans have expressed negative feelings towards illegal immigration.These groups feel feel as though immigrants are getting freedom and benefits for free, and that these immigrants don’t give their fare share of contributions to the United States. In reality, however, Illegal immigrants bring endless opportunities and hard work to America. Illegal immigrants should be accepted in America because they work as much, if not harder, than the average American citizen to be considered a part of the society in America.
For the longest time, illegal immigrants have come and done the jobs that many Americans won’t do and will do. They have gotten jobs ranging from janitors and store owners to lawyers and doctors. There is an endless amount of jobs that illegal immigrants have here in America, that contribute to the well being of this country. The Bipartisan Policy Center estimates that immigration would increase U.S. employment and raise wages. Illegal immigrants bring nothing but skill and opportunity. Illegal Immigrants contribute to the unemployment rate, which is at 5.0 % according to the Bureau of labor Statistics. Having Illegal Immigrants come to America helps America financially.
Another financial benefit of immigrants is that they create new businessness for America. These new businesses help America in a very big way economic and financial aspect. A study put out by National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) found that venture-backed companies with at least one foreign-born founder are responsible for an increasing amount of IPOs and subsequent job creation (Fast company). Huffington post shows you companies such as google, at&t and ebay, that are run by immigrants. These Immigrants that own these billion and trillion dollar companies are working ten times hard than natives of America to be successful in this country.
Contrary to popular belief, illegal immigrants also pay taxes. Many Americans believe that while illegal immigrants are here, they are living off the government for free. The Fiscal times says “The 50-state analysis by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy released on Thursday found that roughly 8.1 million of 11.4 million undocumented immigrants who work paid more than $11.8 billion in state and local taxes in 2012, even while they were living illegally in the country.” Since a lot of people believe that illegal immigrants are living in America for free, they feel as if they have not earned their stay and should pay as much as a citizen does to live here. The statistic proves those people wrong and that even though these immigrants are illegal they still follow the same regimen as a person who is legal and are not trying to live here for free. They are giving their hard owned money just like the natives of America.
All in all, Illegal immigrants are earning their way in America like anyone else. There is no difference between the natives of America and illegal immigrants except of for the fact that they are illegal. Illegal immigrants work so hard to escape hardships unknown from their countries. They come to America, for a better chance at life and for more opportunities. They are willing to show how much they want to be in America and are not taking it for granted like some Americans do. They want to be here and they are putting in countless day and nights and working harder that most Americans. It’s time they are showed the respect they have deserve.

Melting and Gone
( waking up for morning time) I can't believe papa hasn't come back from his hunting trip. He said we were going to play our favorite game “ walk like a penguin” but he hasn't been back since the last full moon, and that was 5 days ago mama says. I wonder why momma prays to the spirit gods at night every night, this must mean papa is in trouble. I really hope papa comes home tomorrow. My 12 birthday is coming up I’m becoming a woman soon papa has to be here he just has to be. ( walks outside) Finally the men are back from the hunting trip, but where’s papa and what are they carrying. It’s look like a big seal or body. “mama what's that’s, what are they carrying where is papa.” “I don't want to be quite where is papa.” “ Papa ! ....Papa ! …. Papa !. “Where is my dad !” “ He’s what he can’t be I just …. You're lying stop Lying please wheres my dad ( starts crying). Why does this have to happen to me , I have been good I pray to the spirit gods everyday, I feed the dogs, I help mama around the house this is not fair. Papa can't be dead he can't we didn't sing our favorite song for my birthday. He always called me his sweet Etenia right before I blew the candles out. I bet this because of all the ice melting. He promised he would stay away from that ice. I just wanna blame somebody … This is all the stupid Americans fault they have everything to do with this. With their big smoke houses blowing gas in the air and the way they throw dirt and stuff on the ground is horrible. Now my beautiful Alaska is melting and my papa is dead, who knows what else could happen. Momma may be right after all. These Americans have angered the spirited gods for to long and now they have really done it destroying our beautiful world and taking lives. They are going to pay, their all are going to pay.
Your Are now Leaving Colorado
( watching the trees) Still till this day I don't understand why the spirit gods gave me the name Napayshni. For crying out loud the name means courageous. As I watch the colors of amber oranges and lust reds cover my friends head to toe I think am I next. For one thing I know I am not courageous, watching my friends fall bark by bark, leaf by leaf, and branch by branch I think Napayshni in no way are you courageous enough to save any of them. These colors seem to spread fast, I wonder what they are ? All I know is that they do something to my friends. It looks so painful. I want to stop hearing the screams of my friends as the colors swarm them swallowing them whole. There’s another life, soul even air taken away. My friends are what make up this place we are everywhere. We blend so well with the mountains and rivers. Why would anyone want to get rid of such a beautiful place that we helped create. These colors smell of the black clouds coming out from the big brick houses. Factories I believe thats what the humans call them I really don’t know, can't really trust those humans. They make the strange midnight clouds that cover me from leaves to roots. Now that I think about it, just yesterday a bunch of humans came out and started creating these colors. They never put it out, they just left it there and then the colors started to move upwards. I didn't know those colors could run so fast the way they did. I also wonder if the humans have to do with the temperature going up. The hotter it is the more colors you see, everything always has to do with humans they made these colors. They are killing off anyone now and soon they're going to kill off their self soon. The colors are getting closer to me now. This is all to scary I don't know what to do. I wish I could move but I’m stuck to the ground. “Your are now leaving Colorado” what a strange sign. The colors are close to me. I really wish my friend would stop calling my name. Courageous he calls, courageous he keeps saying but courageous I am not. The colors are swarming me now, they are turning me to the dust like they do my friends. This hurts really bad. Its killing me. “Your are now leaving Colorado.” I guess that sign is right, I really am now.
No More Fight Left
( walking to find food) “ Naga , Naga all the time she calls me.” I wish my mother would stop calling me. I know don't go near the sharp ice or don't go near the small ice. Stay away from the water. Sessh I’m old enough to walk on my own mama I don't need you babying me. I wonder what's so wrong with playing with the ice. Its so small and looks fun I just wanna touch it. the ice does stick to my white fur we can match, so why stay away from something that matches me.Mhmm when mama doesn't look I’ll go play over there. All I know is i'm so hungry I wish we didn't have to walk so far for food. Since the ice becomes smaller we walk long distances. All this walking isn't good for mama. It takes away all her energy and now she says my baby brother went to the spirit gods to fast because she has no energy. I really don't understand why all this is happening to Alaska. Momma say because of the temperature rising or because the earth is warming. I guess when it gets hot the the ice melts a lot . Its been shrinking a lot lately we haven’t been able to catch any seals for food. I haven’t had any food and 3 days thats to long for a me to go. I think mama hurts more than me though. When we do find some food, mama gives it to me. She is becoming more weak and frail by the second. Somebody has to to help my momma she can't walk any longer, the ice needs to get bigger again momma can't give anymore babies to the spirit gods any longer she needs rest. She needs somebody to save her. I always compare my momma to the earth. They both hurt , they both cry and they both are broken. The earth just has a little more fight then momma. Soon the earth and mamma are not going to have anything left to fight , then were really going to be in trouble.
A. What is negative space (explain this concept to a fourth grader that has never heard of it)
Negative space is the background of an object in a picture.
B. Explain how you found negative space in 1. your cut out?, 2. in your stool drawing?
I found negative space in my cut because I had two different colors and the purple was the space in the background. In the stool drawing the white space surrounding the table,stool and plant.
C. Why does it help an artist to see in negative space?
If you can get rid of the object in the picture or look around the object you can find the negative space.
D. How is negative space useful in creating art?
It helps to see where your drawing will go or the right size for the object.
a. What is one thing that your learned specifically that you did not know before?
One thing that I learned that I didn't know before was if your lines don’t connect to the middle point then your lines will become messed and in the end making your all drawing become messed up as well.
b. How did leaning this thing make your drawings better?
I believe that learning about one point perspective makes my drawings better becasue it allows me to draw neater and my lines will also be neat as well.It causes your drawing to have order to show that you not only can follow steps but your good at being creative,
c. If you did this assignment again, what would you do differently?
If I could do this assignment again I think I would try to complete a different wall and also try to not not make as many mistakes as I did.
d. What is your advice to someone who has never drawn a one point perspective drawing before?
My advice is that you have to have a lot of patience and willingness to never give up. I know that drawing is very hard and for someone who is not the best at it may feel as though giving up is the answer but you if you just ask for help and keep trying you'll get the hang of it.
e. What resource helped you the most and why?
I had a couple of resources that help me through this process of drawing. I had the link that Ms.Hull put up to show step by step how to draw one side of the room. I had some of my classmates who helped me fix the mistakes I had and also I had my dad who is very good at teaching art help me along the way.

My slide describes that I can't live without music basically saying that i was lost now im found because i have music in my life. When i visited the design slide website I found one thing to be very interesting. The quote said “ My slides are not designed for people who didn't see the talk in person. They're designed to support my words, not some online audience”. I believe that this information is telling me that you should try to please yourself not everyone else because it only matters what you want to say. This project is about expressing yourself and telling people what makes you, you. The reason i made my slide the way i did is because when I visited the slide design page i found out that the key points are colors that stand out, bold print and less words to get my point across. So I followed these steps to describe myself in this slide.
During this slide making unit I learned about about contrast, design, color and size. I used these rules to my advantage when creating my slide. For example, I learned that bigger text draws the audience more than medium or small words would on a slide. Another thing I learned was that your should have colors that contrast but they don't have to match all the way.One more thing that I learned is how to space my words on my slide as well as centering them so that it can be more easy for the audience.For my slide my writing was on a slant and some letters were to small and just one color also. I decided to change the color of music and soul to contrast with the galaxy background more so I choose a mustard kind of color and also I centered my words so they can be easy to read and changed the front sized for the words “saved” and “my” to draw the audience in more . Ms.Hull set me to fail because i never done this project before and had no idea how to create a slide the way she described. I was going to make mistakes on this project since it was my first time doing a project like this. During our class discussions I learned more about what could make my project better like making my words a similar size and color so that they not only contrast but stand out in my slide
