Restoration project at Bennett Auto Sales and Services (BASS) Bennett Auto Sales and Services (BASS) consists of three car dealerships that sell and service several makes of American and Japanese cars, two auto part stores, a large body shop and car painting business, and an auto salvage yard. David Bennett, owner of BASS, went into the car business when he inherited a Ford dealership from her father. He was able to capitalize on her knowledge and experience to build her business into the diversified and successful mini-empire it is today. Her motto “Sell ‘em today, repair ‘em tomorrow!” reflects a strategy that he refers to in private as “Get ‘em coming and going”. Bennett has always retained a soft spot in her heart for a high-performance Mustangs and just acquired 1965 Shelby Mustang GT 350 that needs a lot of restoration. He also notes the public’s going interest in the restoration of vintage automobiles. Bennett is thinking of expanding into the vintage car restoration business and needs help in accessing the feasibility of such a move. He wants restore her 1965 Shelby Mustang to mint condition, or as close to mint condition as possible. If he decides to go into the car restoring business, he can use the Mustang as an exhibit in sales and advertising and take it to auto shows to attract business for the new shop.

Bennett believes that many people want the thrill of restoring an old car themselves, but they do not have time to run down all the old parts. Still, others just want to own a vintage auto because it is different and many of them have plenty of money to pay someone to restore an auto for them. Bennett wants the new business to appear to both types of people. For the first group, he envisions serving as parts broker for NOS (“new old stock”), new parts that were manufactured few years ago and still packaged in their original cartons. It can be a tie…...

The Sense of Sadness and Loss Expressed in the Two Poems, on My First Sonne and Refugee Mother and Child

...The two poems successfully bring about the emotions of sadness and loss by conflicting feelings dealing with death. Both the poems are narrated from the parent’s view addressing his or her child that has died or is about to, and this brings about emotions of grief in the reader as well. The two poems set the mood and atmosphere in the first stanza. In “Refugee mother and child” Chinua Achebe says “for a son she would soon have to forget” brings about sadness and loss because she cannot do anything about it and tells the reader the poem is about a dying son she cannot save. The reader can imagine what she is going through as a mother watching her child knowing he is about to die soon. In the poem “On my first sonne” the first thing the father says is the word “farewell” and from this the reader can tell the poem is about the father bidding farewell to his treasured son. In the same way Chinua Achebe tries to bring about sadness so does Ben Johnson as they both watch what they have lost or are about to loose. ‘On my first sonne’ and ‘Refugee mother and child’ both have many bib... ... middle of paper ... ...ild” does not have much punctuation which is effective because it makes the reader think about the meanings behind these lines.

Compare and Contrast Poetry

...the two poems are fundamentally unlike each other. The poetic devices, structures, tones and themes of these two poems can be compared and contrasted. Although both poets use similar poetic devices such as imagery and similes, the two poems vary greatly in meaning. For example, two very contrasting applications of imagery in “Sad Child” are the description of the lawn party (stanza 3) and death (stanza 4 & 5). The lawn party gives a very optimistic and cheerful feeling amongst all the sadness in the poem; however, it is immediately contrasted by the author’s statement, “I am not the favorite child” (line 20). As for death, the last two stanzas focus on opposite ways of dying. One is a peaceful form of death in a bed, (“blanket” [25], “pillow” [28]); while the other is losing life in a car crash (“ burning car” [25], “tarmac” [27]). A profound simile can be found in line 4: “or hug your sadness like an eyeless doll”, urging us to find comfort in, and accept the inevitable sadness. In “A Sad Child”, Ondaatje uses imagery as well in the first 5 lines stanza 3. He suggests that his daughter will always have support in her life, “swimming beside [her] ship”, and should listen to others’ advice, the “siren”. If she does not, she will not move forward in life. The two poems also have a similar structure, although “To a Sad Daughter” is much more extensive than “A Sad Child”. The work of Michael Ondaatje consists of 6 stanzas, with the following pattern of number of lines:...

Argument of Definition

...Hannah Wolf Brandon Brook Michalik English 102 25 March 2014 Sadness/Depression Sadness and depression may seem similar in a lot of people’s eyes, however they both have a very different meaning. Sadness is the feeling of sorrow or grief. Being sad is more of a mood while depression is a clinical problem. Depression has a deeper meaning than sadness. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition, categorizes depression as someone who is in a depressed mood and has a loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities for more than two weeks. People who are depressed often feel like there is no way out and that is why depression can often lead to suicide. Some people may mistake sadness and depression for the same thing because they do have similarities. Sadness is often how depression starts out. Sadness can also be associated with grief. Grief is the response to a loss of someone and is associated with sadness. More people should look at sadness and grief as the same instead of sadness and depression. To know if you have depression, a diagnostic needs to be made by pointing out symptoms. Dr. Kramer believes that there are nine symptoms; if you have five out of those nine then you are depressed. The symptoms include: depressed mood, hard time having fun, no energy, can’t sleep, eating a lot, no desire for physical activity, feeling worthless, can’t concentrate, suicidal thoughts (Valiunas). All of those may seem like signs of just being...

How to Be a Good Parent

... ʘ In the Pacific Ocean there is an island composed by two mountains. It is as if someone had placed together two big handfuls of earth and stones in the heart of the sea. The bigger one is called Sadness and the smaller one Joy. ʘ Mythology tells us that many centuries ago Joy was larger and higher than Sadness, but, due to an earthquake, part of it fell in the sea, shaping the mountain the way we find it today. No one knows if that is really the truth. ʘ ʘ The fact is that where those two geological accidents meet live a girl named Aletheia and her grandmother. Aletheia and her grandma are like the mountains: two persons who are always together. ʘ Today the girl is shorter and smaller than her grandmother; but some day, nobody knows when, Aletheia will wake and she will be taller than her grandma. Aletheia is going to grow up and I think that when this day comes, they will still be together, just like the mountains of the island. One day this girl asked: “Grandma, who made the world?”. To what her grandmother replied, “God”. - “All of it?”. - “Yes, all of it”. - “By himself?”. - “Yes”. ʘ Aletheia left the room with that conversation on her mind. She was not convinced. She thought about this for a few days. In order to digest her thoughts she went for a walk through the island. Alone she thought. Aloud she though and she began to share her thoughts with whatever crossed her way: leaves, trees, stones, ants, crickets, etc. Had God......

In Poe

...First, in Poe’s literary works, the tone can be often described as melancholy or sadness of the spirit. Poe had a number of experiences in his life, that caused him to feel sad. His melancholy is reflected in the tone of his works. One such work, The Raven, was written during the time his wife named Virginia was dying. “That I scarce was sure I heard you- here I opened wide the door;- Darkness there, and nothing more.” (The Raven). The poem is about a man who is grieving for his dead lover. This poem could be said to be written by Poe to express his sadness in the fact that Virginia’s time to die was nearing. This gives a depressing appeal to the reader and gives them a sense of Poe’s thoughts while writing The Raven. Another kind of sadness can be expressed in one of Poe’s short poems, Eldorado. “Fell as he found No spot of ground That looked like Eldorado.”(Eldorado) Throughout his life, Poe had always been searching for something, but he never found it. Poe suffered financial issues, he was gambling to earn money but ended up in deeper debt. This poem could have been written to show Poe’s desire and want to have a family, to be successful in his lifetime. Yet, he never got any of that. Eldorado has a more upbeat tone than to say, The Raven, but there still is a feeling of sadness. Wanting to reach something you always just seem to can’t, and yet never reaching it. Poe had a fascination with death, as depicted in his stories. Most likely because everyone around him was......

..."Dover Beach" by Matthew Arnold The sea is calm tonight,  The tide is full, the moon lies fair  Upon the straits; on the French coast the light  Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,  Glimmering and vast,(1) out in the tranquil bay.  Come to the window, sweet is the night air! Only, from the long line of spray  Where the sea meets the moon-blanched land,  Listen! you hear the grating roar  Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,  At their return, up the high strand, (2) Begin, and cease, and then again begin,  With tremulous cadence slow, and bring  The eternal note of sadness in.(3) Sophocles long ago  Heard it on the Aegean, and it brought  Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow  Of human misery; we  Find also in the sound a thought,  Hearing it by this distant northern sea.(4) The Sea of Faith  Was once, too, at the full, and round earth's shore  Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.  But now I only hear  Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,  Retreating, to the breath  (5) ...

Sad Music Make You Sad

...University of Jyvaskyla ¨ ¨ The present study addressed music’s disputed ability to induce genuine sadness in listeners by investigating whether listening to sad music can induce sadness-related effects on memory and judgment. Related aims were to explore how the different mechanisms of music-induced emotions are involved in sadness induced by familiar, self-selected music and unfamiliar, experimenter-selected music, and whether the susceptibility to music-induced sadness is associated with trait empathy. One hundred twenty participants were randomly assigned into four conditions with different tasks: listening to unfamiliar sad or neutral music, or to self-selected sad music, or recalling a sad autobiographical event and writing about it. The induced affective states were measured indirectly using a word recall task and a judgment task where participants rated the emotions expressed by pictures depicting facial expressions. The results indicate that listening to sad music can indeed induce changes in emotion-related memory and judgment. However, this effect depends, to some extent, on the music’s relevance to the listener, as well as on the personality attributes of the listener. Trait empathy contributed to the susceptibility to sadness induced by unfamiliar music, while autobiographical memories contributed to sadness induced by self-selected music.

...figure that resembles the shape of a star, Sadness; shown as a blue character that resembles the shape of a tear-drop, Anger; the red fellow in the shape of a box, Fear; the purple figure that resembles the shape of a question-mark & Disgust; shown as a green character that resembles the shape of a broccoli. The plot of the story was as simple as it was intricate. It was about the struggle of a young girl, named Riley Andersen, as her emotions meet a dilemma that almost dealt her her biggest disaster. The conflict started when Riley’s Family had to move to San Francisco. Riley, being just the young girl that she was, had to face mountains of adjustment to fit into the new life that she had to live. In her judgment, the big move to San Franco wasn’t so good of an idea. Their new house turned out to be disastrous evidenced by hellish stench given off by a dead rat lying by the wall. When she ran to her bedroom, she saw that it was far smaller than what she had back in Minnesota. To top it all up, their luggage and furniture had some mishap on their way to San Francisco which meant that they’ll be arriving a couple of days later than expected. In Riley’s mind, nothing could be worse than the predicament that she was in. The opening of school gave her hope. The opportunity of having new friends in her new school motivated her to push through her day. Unfortunately, the five characters of her conscious mind met an accident. Sadness touched some of Riley’s “core......

Sadness and Tragedy in Antigone and the Things They Carried

...Dani Kaiser December 3, 2015 3rd period Sadness and Tragedy in Antigone and The Things They Carried Tinged with sadness and tragedy, both Antigone by Sophocles and The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien show reactions of characters to tragedies. These great moments of sadness in both books reveal the inner traits of many characters. In Antigone, Antigone reacts to her tragic life. In The Things They Carried, supporting character Mary Anne Bell reacts to the tragedy of war. The way the aforementioned characters acted after these events affirms their real identity. A large part of background needed to understand Antigone can be found in Oedipus Rex. In Antigone, the main character Antigone lives what most would consider a very tragic life. Antigone and her sister are the daughters of Oedipus. Banished from Thebes, Oedipus never got to see his daughters again. Oedipus’ son and Antigone’s brother, Eteocles, takes control of Thebes, and, bitter and angry, his brother Polynices raises an army to march against the city. Both are slain in the ensuing battle. This is where the story of Antigone picks up. Creon, Oedipus’ brother in law and uncle is now King of Thebes. He issues a decree to give funeral honors to Eteocles, but not Polynices. Creon leaves Polynices out as food for animals. As their sister, Antigone feels obligated to bury both of her brothers, and she does so. Antigone’s criminal actions cause Creon to sentence her to the death penalty. Antigone’s......

Emotions

...female facial expression provided. Seven different emotions were rated which included disgust, anger, fear, happiness, neutral, sadness and surprise, on a seven-point Likert-type scale. After data was collected, perceived emotional intensity was measured and analyzed using a total feminine emotion score. Results showed that there was no difference in perceived emotional intensity based occupation level or gender of participant. These findings suggest that social roles are not a factor in perceived emotion level within a target; however future research should use a measure that equally describes both masculine stereotyped emotions and feminine stereotyped emotions. Keywords: perception, facial expressions, stereotypes, emotional expressions. The Effect of Social Role on Gender Specific Emotion Perception Facial expressions and the emotions they incite are the most powerful form of nonverbal communication (Algoe, Buswell & DeLameter, 2000). Emotions such as happiness, sadness, fear, anger and disgust are interpreted through our facial expressions and relate to others our degree of approachability, confidence, and nurturance. Research suggests that gender specific stereotypes affect the interpretation of emotion through facial expressions (Plant, Hyde, Keltner & Devine, 2000). For example, emotions such as sympathy and sadness are expressed more frequently by women, and are therefore deemed stereotypic feminine expressions. Conversely, emotions such......
