When you first start to read this book, you realize how much Laura has helped this young boy, Maurice, but as you continue to read, you begin to realize how much he has also helped her.
Hello and welcome to an essay that could help expand on the compare and contrast of “A Simple Act” and “An Invisible Thread”. This is a compare and contrast essay that will expand on how the two stories are the same and how they are different. The two stories that I will be comparing and contrasting are “A Simple Act” and “An Invisible Thread”. Although “A Simple Act” and “An Invisible Thread” sound the same, there are a lot of differences in the two stories. Let's get on with the body before I get into to many specifics.
When I first look at Hiroshige’s Plum Garden at Kameido, 1857, I see a grove of flowering trees, with a fence in the background to keep visitors off the lush green grass. The main focal point of this photo is the large tree branch in the foreground. This branch has several offshoots from it with dainty white flowers. Looking past this I see several other trees in the background, all with flowers blooming on them, but none with leaves. In the farthest background, there is a metal fence that is separating several people from the garden of trees. There is also a partial shack in the background on the far most right-hand side of the picture. I also see what appears to be the back of a sign, mostly hidden, in the upper left corner of the foreground. It appears to be sunset during the painting, with the horizon lighter and the higher sky a red color. There are several blocks of oriental writings, a red rectangle in the lower left corner over the body of the tree branch; then two in the top right corner in the sky, one green square and
Throughout time clothing has been an important part of individual’s lives often reflecting one’s culture and personality. People use clothing to express themselves and to help others see who they are. One particular group of people that uses dress as a way to express who they are and how they feel are black women. In the seventies black people were finally allowed to attend mostly white universities, although this was a huge step forward, black women did not feel like they fit in. Black women and men decided to turn to clothing and their appearance in order to find a sense of self in a world surrounded by whites. Tanisha Ford presented “Liberated Threads: Black Women, Style, and the Global Politics of Soul” explaining why dress matters to black
In the modern age of high-speed internet, self-driving cars and VR it’s easy to forget that some places in the world still don’t have fresh water, let alone plumbing. The average person uses between 80 and 100 gallons of water a day. If you drink the recommended 8 glasses per day that’s only 8 oz a glass, or 64 oz in total. Of those 80 to 100 gallons we use an average of 3 every time we flush the toilet, 5 gallons per minute in the shower, 36 gallons for a bath, 8-27 gallons while doing the dishes, 25 gallons for every load of laundry and another 2 gallons a minute if you’re doing any outdoor watering or filling a kiddy pool. By using a newer toilet, you can reduce the gallons per flush to about 1.6 gallons, and when using a water saving shower head you can reduce your use to about 2 gallons per minute. This may not seem like much of a difference, but it can make a big impact.

You look through the course catalog and come upon a class—Basket Weaving through Colonial Oceania. Many would question why this course even exists. Such classes are universally scorned, to the point that “underwater basket weaving” has become a euphemism for “worthless, impractical class”. Although electives are, by definition, classes that are optional, the choice of electives is still subject to peer pressure. Students normally endeavor to fill their schedules with electives that closely align with their major, lest they “waste their time” with an unprofitable course. An unrelated elective is not, actually, a waste of time. In fact, it is vital for students to take courses outside of their area of concentration.
In South between the 1830s and the 1860s social life developed with its dependence of cotton. The cotton became the king crop of agriculture and success at that point of time. It became almost half of the good that were being exported throughout the nation and any southern knew that if they wanted to become rich they were to become successful cotton farmers of their day. “But growing cotton required slaves and land, so southerners brought slaves and slavery with them into the southwestern territories of the United States.” (Schultz, n.d.). So this in turn led to a decreasing amount of need for big cities as it did for the Northerners at that time. Which in turn shows the reason why in the South most white individuals were either yeoman
National Farm And Garden, INC., Marketing problem Losing the leading position as a number one supplier of farming equipment, National Farm and Garden, Inc. or NFG is currently facing problem with the company reputation and trust.

Refillable water bottles may seem expensive, but in the long run it will be much cheaper. “On average, Americans spend about $5 a week on bottled water, this means you can save $260 per year by switching to a reusable water bottle” (Speer par. 5). This statistic shows just how much the average American (the world wide statistic was not available) can save yearly, let alone in a lifetime. This statistic also does not include the average money a year a person spends on soda pop, tea, coffee, or other drinks that could be put into the refillable bottle if they are bought in bulk. Many people say they do not have money to buy a nice refillable water bottle, but most people do have the money it would take to buy an eight dollar Contigo refillable bottle from Walmart that would do the job. Up to one fifth of Americans have tap water that is not drinkable (Karp par. 1). However, there are refillable water bottles with filters. Refillable water bottles with filters may be more expensive, but it is easy to find a cheap one at Walmart. For example someone could buy a ten dollar Brita filter water bottle. Investing in a refillable bottle will already save someone money after one month of use.

Reflections of the world and its issues can be found in the strangest of places. Take a quilt for example, a quilt creates a beautiful pattern using colorful pieces of fabric. While the pieces do touch, the vibrant colors are forever separated by a boundary, sentenced never to intertwine. However, if one were to direct their attention to the similar, yet different masterpiece known as a tapestry, another analogy will present itself. A tapestry is a story retold not with words, but with strings colorful thread woven together. Although the quilt is beautiful and it's own way, it's a mediocre compared to a tapestry. A tapestry demands hours of work and patience produce the its famously beautiful portraits, but a quilt will require minimal effort
