Luke 1:26-38 FEAR NOT
Intro: Fear has been a part of the human existence since the fall of man in Genesis 3:8-10. Everyone, regardless of how brave they seem, is afraid of something. I, personally, am afraid of heights. Not so much afraid of being of there, because the views are incredible. Not afraid of the fall, because free fall is an exhilarating experience. If I had to define my fear, I would have to say that my fear of heights is really a fear of the sudden stop that awaits me at the bottom of my fall. I say again, everyone is afraid of something. (Snakes, Spiders, Disease, Financial Setbacks, Old Age, Gray Hair, Rejection, Disappointment, Exposure, Being Forgotten, Etc.) Even in the...

There are many influential documents for which the United States of America was founded on; the Declaration of Independence, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the United States Constitution are three well known documents that ensure the rights of the people of the United States. The Pledge of Allegiance states that we are “One Nation” and the Declaration of Independence states that “all men are created equal.” The term “Hate Crime” defined by Public Law #103-322A, a 1994 federal law, defines a hate crime as: “a crime in which the defendant intentionally selects a victim, or in the case of...

Strategies for Learning from Failure – Amy C. Edmondson – Strategy
Failure is being looked at the wrong way (Edmondson, 2011). Failure can be an important learning tool for organizations around the globe. If analyzed correctly and quickly, but also implemented effectively, failure can transform negative situations into positive growth. Failure is generally discouraged and instinctively passed onto someone else if possible; this is called the Blame Game (Edmondson, 2011).
The Blame Game (discovered at childhood) discourages people from taking the blame for a mistake or failure. It leads to unsolved problems and...

Phobias and Addictions Paper
As organic beings grow and adapt to our environments we are able to experience and learn many things. As soon as we are born we start to experiment with various mediums for pleasure and for survival. The ways in which we learn have been studied and reviewed many times by many social researchers. The two most prominent forms of learning styles are labeled as Classical and Operant Conditioning. Both Styles allow individuals to perform experiments in which we find out what works, why it works, and the possible changes and outcomes that may be applied as a result. In classical conditioning, a stimulus that already leads to a response is replaced by a different...

Point Of View
The Nazis viewed killing the Jews as “justice”. They though that the Jews existing was a mistake and that they must carry on what Christ could not. They assumed that in order to give Christ proper justice, they must kill the ones who persecuted him in the first place and those are the Jews. A quote from Joseph Goebells on November 16, 1941 explained their intentions and why they were doing what they were doing.
“ By reason of their birth and race, all Jews are part of a conspiracy against National Socialist Germany[…] The treatment we give them does them no wrong. They have more than deserved it.”
One reason the Jews continued to be slaughtered like animals is because...

Our response to stimuli constructs our human condition and furthermore who we are as an individual. Whether it is positive or negative forces, our responses to these things influence how we are perceived by people. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Hamlet seeks out revenge on Claudius, his uncle turned step-father who killed his father and is now trying to act innocent. Although the characters believe in Claudius’ innocence and furthermore that Hamlet is crazy, it is in the final interaction between Hamlet and Claudius that all can see Claudius’ guilt. It is a natural response for some to react in fear with violence, as it is part of our human nature which can be seen through Hamlet’s driving desire...

In “A Barred Owl” by Richard Wilbur and “The History Teacher” by Billy Collins, adults attempt to explain the unknown to children by lying. In both poems, literary devices are used to convey exactly how the adults manipulate the children to believe everything other than the truth, mainly to keep them in a state of calm and ignorance. Devices such as rhyme scheme and juxtaposition are used in Wilbur’s poem to demonstrate the effectiveness of lying to calm one’s fears while other devices such as tone and metaphors are used in Collins’ to show the effects of misinformation on the actions of the youth, as well as the ignorance of the individuals who spread it.
Wilbur utilizes the rhyming...

Symbol of Rain in A Farewell to Arms
In A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, Hemingway expresses the struggle of letting go through the theme of rain. It seems as if whenever there is the slightest bit of hope for Catherine and Henry’s relationship, it is destroyed by a disaster. In several instances, including the trip to Milan and Henry’s walk back to the hotel, rain haunts the characters and predicts misfortune. Throughout A Farewell to Arms, rain tends to destroy any happiness felt between Catherine and Henry, as it foreshadows tragedy to come.
One night, while Catherine and Henry are enjoying their time together in Milan, Catherine confesses that she is...

Phobias and Addictions
In order to effectively examine any relationship between phobias, addictions and types of conditioning, it is important to first define and examine the differences between classical conditioning and operant conditioning. According to the Free Dictionary (2014), classical conditioning is defined as “A process of behavior modification by which a subject comes to respond in a desired manner to a previously neutral stimulus that has been repeatedly presented along with an unconditioned stimulus that elicits the desired response.” Operant conditioning however is defined by...

The purpose of this research study was to examine gender differences with regard to domestic violence and if having been a victim of domestic violence or witnessing it at a young age has any influence on the probability of becoming a perpetrator of domestic violence or a victim of it later in life. Previous research has narrowly identified males as aggressors of domestic violence and has failed to identify females as a domestic violence perpetrator outside of the realm of self-defense (Kernsmith, 2006). The study seeks to discover if having been a female victim of abuse or a witness thereof has any influence on the propensity to behave violently in familial or dating relationships.

Nat Turner was a very intelligent man based upon his confession. He claimed to have been born with a special ability given to him by the Lord to know of events from before his birth. He also believed that he was being used by the Lord for a greater purpose in his life. When he could have escaped, he felt compelled by the Spirit to return to his master and continue his work there. Upon reading the first couple of pages in his confession, Nat Turner seemed like a very respectful and innocent man. What was surprising was the lack of remorse or fear in his confession about the things he had witnessed and participated in. It felt as though he was telling a made up horror story of men, women and...

Coming back to school after 40 years
Starting a new job
Meeting new people, male or female

3) I try and tell myself that everything is going to be ok, you’ll be fine, don’t worry....

“Marisol” is about a young, naïve woman who relatively has her life figured out. She goes to work, keeps her head down, and goes home. Her current reality is a place where apples and coffee are extinct while cows produce salty milk. She tries to hide her religion and culture from the people in her life so that she can fit in. Then suddenly, she was attacked by some supposedly crazy man with a golf club on a subway train who is going on and on about angels and the end of the world. She manages to escape but not without being infected with the mass hysteria. I believe this is when Marisol begins to slip through a different reality.

Light vs. Dark
In the epic poem Beowulf, a battle between light and dark arises throughout Heorot, and even though it looked as if darkness had fallen over society, light broke through the darkness, ultimately shining back onto civilization. This darkness that has fallen over Heorot follows Grendel, the monster from Hell, with every step he takes. Only coming out at night to terrorize the people, this darkness seems to be unbeatable, and all hope seems lost. But, Beowulf, a warrior who “swam in the blackness of night, hunting monsters out of the ocean, and killing them one by one” (Beowulf 417-422) has come to Heorot with the intention of driving out this darkness. This epic battle...

For the worst crimes, life without parole is better, for many reasons. I’m against the death penalty not because of sympathy for criminals but because it isn’t effective in reducing crime, prolongs the anguish of families of murder victims, costs a whole lot more than life in prison, and, worst of all, risks executions of innocent people.
The death penalty keeps the population safe by providing a deterrent for crime. Without the death penalty, the consequences for committing murder are not as feared. According to an essay by Professor Jeffrey A. Fagan, “executions [do] not only...

How can anyone be afraid of an insect that is smaller than them? My fear of spiders started when I was seven years old. Every year during summer break I would go out to the country to visit my godparents on their farm. I was always told not to play outdoors in my bare feet because of the insects, snakes, and small rodents. Being an adventurous child I did the total opposite of what I was being told. While playing in the barn one summer day I decided to take my shoes off, which led to me getting bit by a spider, becoming terribly ill, and having to spend several days in the...

The incident took place on a Friday afternoon, and the perpetrator subsequently died in the hospital two days later. My family and friends were there to help me through the ordeal but life soon returned to normal for them. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about my own life. My immediate reaction was a combination of sadness, anger, guilt, fear, and shock about what had happened.

A 37 year old state representative, Carlos Henriquez, was sentenced to six months in prison after a jury had convicted him of punching a woman in the chest after she had refused to have sex with him.

It is something that has stayed with me and that I deal with and fear on a daily basis. It wasn’t until years later that I sought professional help and found out how common this very personal, ground-shattering experience actually was. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia.

Through the use of metaphors, analogies, and other rhetorical devices, the author further conveys a scientist’s tedious process to reveal a newfound truth.
Barry begins by contrasting the strength and conviction of certainty with the weakness and fear of uncertainty. He uses clear, definitive language to convey broad ideas. He establishes direction in his second paragraph as he lists the qualities an ideal scientist should have. He emphasizes that a scientist must have “the...
