Recording of Othello

I read from Othello 1.3.229-240 where I was the Duke. I learned that impact, tone, inflection, volume and pacing affects how you hear Shakespeare and understand the true meaning of what he wrote.  Tone contributed to the emotions meaning if you use a soft tone, the audience perceives it as peaceful. You can use volume to draw attention to thing […]

Oh Othello

Duke 1.3.229-240 Paraphrase Let me say something, as you have, That may help you forgive these lovers, In your favor. When there is nothing you can do, There is no point in being upset over it. You’ve seen the worst outcome for your former hopes, To be sad over what happened only makes it worse. When something is taken away […]

E.T.

Certainly, if you ask me if there I believe in alien life beyond Earth, I would respond with yes.  The possibility of extraterrestrial life is very likely considering the vastness of our Galaxy.  The announcement that there is life somewhere other than Earth would be very exciting to me and I would react in a very positive way.  Obviously, I […]

Aliens and UFOs

Not everyone is optimistic about life beyond Earth.  Enrico Fermi is attributed to Fermi’s paradox which questions if there is alien life why haven’t they made contact with us if they are so advanced. A mealtime conversation in the 1950’s lead Enrico Fermi to realize that if there is extraterrestrial societies with an amount of rocket intelligence then the possibility […]

To Infinity and Beyond

People have been contemplating extraterrestrial life long before I have.  The ancient Greek considered the possibility of civilizations in our infinite universe. Later, Copernicus’ model opened that door to extraterrestrial babble.  During the space age in the 1950’s, the question of alien life became more popular as the Russians sent satellites into Earth’s orbit. We sent machines farther than we […]

The Hunt For Life Beyond Earth

The sky twinkles on a starry night, filling the pure darkness with tiny specks of light, looking up I wonder, “Is there life beyond Earth?”  Millions of miles away huge gas stars burn and even bigger planets rotate the sun just like ours.  We are bothered with this concept as Earth is constantly rotating around the sun and as soon […]

Legalization of Marijuana

Is Marijuana a medicine?  Twenty-eight states say that marijuana is a medicine, but the Utah lawmakers insist that it shouldn’t be legal, except for cases of severe epilepsy.  Some say the use of marijuana can help treat chronic pain, while other push that the legalization will help further research on dosage, effectiveness, and driver impairment. In Into the weed: What […]

Government Knows Too Much

Our nation, a beacon of freedom, should still be able to protect Americans as well as others, while still affirming the values of privacy and liberty. This delicate balance questions how much the government should know about its people.  The National Security Agency helps keep Americans safe from terrorist threats.  Although safety is important, having our civil liberties protected is […]

The Ride

Unsophisticated Love Influenced by the Lyric “Unsophisticated Love” by Matt Burton   Messes with my feelings, but I’m down for the ride. Hot bodies pile in, The engines ignites, Music connects and gears shift to drive. We stay lonely together.   Gone within the same day, Frigid wind hits my face as sheets of glass roll down slowly, With same […]

Formation of Desires

Money, Happiness, Freedom, Peace are frequently mentioned when you are asked, “What do you most desire in life”, and I often ask myself “Where does that feeling come from?”  Desires provide a motivational force in pursuing our goals.  With these strong feelings of wanting toward a specific object there is promise in personal pleasure or gain.  Understanding where these desires […]

WANTED: Humans

If humans disappeared, our footprints would slowly diminish.  Buildings would slowly crumble, nature would take over and become fruitful.  Animals would take our place as keepers of the land and would fight over the territory.  Pollution would not be nearly as harmful to the environment as it is now because there would be less of it.  Without us, many species […]
