A Message to Garcia by Elbert HUBBARD 1899 Apologia HORSE SENSE If you work for a man, in Heaven's name work for him. If he pays wages that supply you your bread and butter, work for him, speak well of him, think well of him, and stand by him, and stand by the institution he represents. I think if I worked for a man, I would work for him. I would not work for him a part of his time, but all of his time. I would give an undivided service or none. If put to the pinch, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. If you must vilify, condemn, and eternally disparage, why, resign your position, and when you are outside, damn to your heart's content. But, I pray you, so long as you are a part of an institution, do not condemn

This letter is to provide potential verification that Martha Chavez may have had attendance in our adult education program at Visalia Adult School in December 2000. We do not have attendance records for that period of time as our system has been replaced with an updated version. However, when I review Ms. Chavez’ transcript, I see that I provided a grade and credit for a math course in April 2001. This suggests that she may have had attendance that spanned from November 13, 2000 (her entry date) through April 2001 and beyond.
Guadalupe Quintanilla was 12 years old, her and her family moved from Mexico to Brownsville, Texas and she was enrolled into school there. She was labeled retarded because she took an IQ test in English and could not understand the English language. After months of humiliation, her grandfather agreed to let Lupe stay home and help him be his eyes. As time passed, she married at 16 to a Mexican-American and gave birth to three children years later. Once her children were enrolled in school, they told Lupe that her children were slow learners. She didn’t understand how they were slow learners when at home, they were so smart. This inspired Lupe to take an English course at a university in which would help her teach her children at home. This

A quilombo is a settlement founded by runaway slaves of African descent, the most famous of these communities was Palmares. This free territory was established in the 1600s and lasted about eighty-nine years, which is longer than any other quilombo in Brazil. In 1984, the director Carlos Diegues brought this overlooked history back into mainstream consciousness with his film Quilombo. The main historical topic covered in this film is the spirit and resistance of African people once they were separated from their homeland and subjected into slavery. History often portrays these kidnapped Africans as helpless and submissive but they did not give up their freedom quickly or silently. Diegues created this film not just to highlight the
On Sunday October 2nd at 7:00pm in Weill Hall, I watched Omara Portuondo with special guests Roberto Fonseca, Anat Cohen, and Regina Carter. Omara Portuondo was the only female in the Buena Vista Social Club. The Buena Vista Social Club consisted of the most famous Cuban musicians at that time. The Club hosted dances and musical events. Omara’s special guest Roberto Fonsea is known for being a multi-instrumentalist. While Anat Cohen is known for unique playing of the clarinet because she fuses Latin jazz styles together. Regina Carter is known for being a talented jazz violinist. All the music that was song that night was in Spanish.
Sue Kim 29 October 2012 Honors Literature Don Quixote Essay “With these word and phrases the poor gentleman lost his mind,” (Cervantes 20). In the beginning of Don Quixote, the reader is introduced to a man engulfed in chivalric books, who soon loses his mind in the stories of knighthood. Don Quixote is labeled as an insane man by the narrator who soon proves this statement through Don Quixote’s delusions and eccentric behaviors. As the narrator describes the delusions, the narrator’s tone is overly mocking towards Don Quixote’s delusional acts. However, ignoring the narrator’s mocking tone, Don Quixote’s foolish acts can be judged reasonable by comparing Don Quixote’s delusions to the actual situation. In Cervantes’ Don Quixote, Don
