July Multiplex

...From this case, there are two types of errors, which the consortium can make. A Type I Error is referred to as a “false positive.” A Type I error would be made when the null hypothesis is rejected when it should be accepted. This error may occur if the consortium defends any lawsuit against them if they are using 6% (6/100) as their surveying result. The results of the sample size of 100 people indicate that the percentage range is from 1.35% to 10.65%. The test results can be higher than 10%, but actually it is lower. Therefore, if the consortium defends any lawsuit against them it is possible that a Type I Error can be made. The second type of error is a Type II Error, which is also known as “false negative.” A Type II error would be made when the alternative hypothesis is rejected when it should be accepted. For this to occur, the consortium must make a decision to settle the case when the survey result shows a lower percentage than 10% but in reality it is actually higher than 10%. The only error the consortium should make is a Type II error because the alternative hypothesis was rejected. As previously stated, using a sample size of 100 shows that we would not reject the null hypothesis, in other words, this would mean to settle with Tommy. If we did not create a second hypothesis test using a sample size of 300, we would not have defended against Tommy in court and a Type II error would have been made. Size of simple | Defend lawsuit | Settlement | 100 | Type II......

July 19, 2000

...Krissy Thomas Jessica Slovak English 070 August 23, 2013 July 19, 2000 It was a blazing hot summer day at work and the sun was blinding my eyes. I remember that day like it was yesterday; it was a Wednesday, July 19, 2000. Three days of work down and two more to go. I loved my job, I was always very “hands on”, but the last few weeks at work seemed to go by slower than they had in the past. I felt like I had a cold, or maybe a touch of the flu, I just hadn’t been feeling myself lately. All I had been wanting to do every minute of the day was sleep or puke! I wasn’t sure if it was because of my cold/flu-like symptoms or maybe I’d just been working too much. The only thing I wanted to eat that tasted good, that kept my nauseousness down was grape popsicles. I think I was eating a box a day, it seemed to be the only thing that helped my stomach feel better. My employer and some of her clients were cigarette smokers, and the smell seemed to linger in the air, on their clothes, and on their hands and it made me sick to my stomach even more. Sometimes even the aroma of my favorite foods made me want to throw up! During this time in my life, I was engaged and in the planning stages of a big beautiful wedding, I was very happy with my life. So, even though I was always feeling sick, I went to work. I worked at a home daycare and the owner suggested maybe I was pregnant and that I should take a test to be sure. Of course, I thought she was nuts, I wasn’t pregnant,......

The Fourth of July

...The fourth of July I remember when I came to America it was the first time in my life that I felt different from the people around me and I felt out of place in my surroundings. I believe that’s how Audre Lorde felt grown up as African American in the 1930s and 1940s. At this time in American history racism against African Americans was very common. In Adre Lordes story “ The fourth of July” she expresses her frustration and anger towards American society and also her parents for ignoring obvious racism and not properly expresses what was happing to her family and why. She seems to be irony to expresses this anger she feels toward American society. Adre Lordes story is a about her family's trip to Washington DC, during the summer after her 8th grade graduation audre lorde thought that Washington DC as a capital would be different from how it was. She was not expecting to find racism in the capital of a country that’s stands for liberty, freedom and equality. But still her and her family felt discriminate. In her story she writes, “The waitress was white, and the counter was white, and the ice cream I never ate in Washington D.C., that summer I left childhood was white, and the white heat and white pavement and the white stone monuments of my first Washington summer made me sick to my stomach for the whole rest of that trip and it wasn’t much of a graduation present after all” she uses the word “white” a lot in her story to describe......

4th of July

...Born on the Fourth of July (film) Born of the Fourth of July is an American drama war film based on the best-selling autobiography of the Vietnamese War veteran Ron Kovic. In the film, the actor Tom Cruise plays Ron Kovic. The film is actually directed by Oliver Stone who is, in fact, a Vietnamese War veteran. The film is about a young boy, Ron, who is full of enthusiasm and wants to go to Vietnam and fight for his country. He is very patriotic at first, but he is later tormented by physically and mentally wounds, which he got from the war, from which he suffers. Ron is developing throughout the film and you could easily say that the first phase is before the war, the second is during the war and the third is after the war. The film is not only trying to tell the viewer the personal development of Ron Kovic but also the director, Oliver Stone, wanted to show what is was like to be a part of the Vietnam War, seen from a war veteran´s point of view. Ron Kovic is born of the 4th of July - the day The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, which to the Americans is a symbol of freedom and nationalism. The film is opening with a scene that shows Ron Kovic, whom is celebrating his 13th birthday and New York celebrating Independence Day with a parade of World War 2 veteran. His family is very caught up by the patriotic theme of the day, and they are very proud to have a son who is born on the 4th of July.

Fourth of July

...Makayla Cowles Professor Snow History 100 04 February 2015 The Meaning of the Fourth of July The Fourth of July is a national holiday celebrating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, which declared the United States free from England’s control. This day gives Americans the great opportunity to renew our dedication to the principles of liberty and equality. It speaks to all who strive for liberty and seek to show the principles of self-government. Unfortunately, not everyone living in America felt the same American pride on the Fourth of July. The freedmen and slaves living in America has different views about the United States and the documents securing freedom and equality. One man, Frederick Douglass, spoke out for the slaves and freedmen in his speech “The Meaning of Fourth of July for the Negro”. In 1852, Frederick Douglass was invited to speak about what the Fourth of July means for America’s black population. In his speech, Douglass questions what the Fourth of July means to a slave. His answer: the Fourth of July is, “a day that reveals to him … the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim”. Douglass continues by saying, “your celebration [is] a shame, a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages”. Douglass states there is no other nation on Earth guilty of the bloody and crimes made by Americans during this time. Douglass makes it known that equality is not within America. The high......

The Fourth of July

...In “The Fourth of July”, Audre Lorde express her anger toward American society. Her angry was caused by discrimination and racism in our Nation. I agree with Lorde, during this period in our nation’s history racism was treated differently. Lorde describes the excitement she felt before her family trip, her reaction to the first encounter of racism while on the trip, and how her parents did or did not deal with racism. To begin, I feel that Lorde was excited to receive a trip to Washington D.C. as a graduation gift. Lorde believed the trip was a gift of accomplishment for graduating the eighth grade, which turned out to be a train wreck. She didn’t understand what people meant by “it’s time to grow up” until her trip that summer in 1947. Her eyes were opened to what her parents had been hiding from her during childhood. The trip that was to celebrate her achievements and the beginning of her journey into adulthood turned into an abrupt experience that would change her aspect of our nation. Conclusion: Lorde provided a personal experience on how cruel our racial society could be. …….. I grew up in a mostly white neighborhood with only a few African Americans that went to my school, so racism was not an issue in my childhood. From the history books, movies, and articles like “The Fourth of July”, it helps me understand what it must have been like. With the Civil Rights Laws in place today, people are supposed to be treated equal, but unfortunately , that does not always......

Fourth of July

...Sydni Craig 000108021 Professor Bailey T and TR April 6, 2016 The Fourth of July In the story, the Fourth of July, by Audre Lorde the little girl is telling the story of a graduation present of going to Washington D.C. As a graduation present from graduating from the eighth and older sister from graduating from high school. And it says that she received the best graduation present but I agree to disagree with the people, who would say she received the best graduation present. I agree with going to Washington D.C. was the best graduation gift the eighth grader could receive. I agree because at a young age especially since she will be going to high school, it is great for her to see everything at firsthand of what the world was like during that time. It gives her an idea of how the world looks like in 1947, were as she is always being hidden from it and not telling what has been going on. But I can also disagree because her parents should explain to her in detail of what was going on, and I also disagree with that being a graduation present and it being the best present she will ever receive. She went through the process of seeing how and what life really is at her age and how it will be for the next couple of years. The world at the year if 1947 was full of racism and discrimination in which it is bad in some states, but also horrible in others. The young girl in the story witnesses her family and not be treated right at firsthand. The thing that was messed up about......

What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?

...In Frederick Douglass’ “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” Douglass gives a well written empathetic speech on the ignored truth and irony about the celebration of Independence Day. His descriptive and impactful retellings of the inhumane practices used in the slave trade gave listeners a revelation that slaves were more than items and laborers but were people just like them. His description of the slaves’ trials and tribulations as families, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters gave a relative point for listeners to second guess the trusted idea that slavery was only a business practice akin to selling cattle. He finally made slaves look like people in the eyes of the American citizen Douglass’ history as a former slave further pushes his point of how terrible slavery can be. Being a part of it firsthand gives a sense of surrealism to the situation since Douglass is not only speaking of slavery from things he’s only seen but situations he has experienced. If he was a man that had never gone through slavery I doubt his words would have made as much as an impact. Being an ex-slave Douglass can give the ugly but necessary truth of what slavery does to people. Douglass’ overall tone of the essay, to me, does seem angry. He puts down the unjust celebration of freedom by the American citizens all the while recalling the atrocities of slavery that exist alongside it. It’s impossible for to see his speech come off as anything but angry. To summarize, Frederick Douglass’......
