Poetry is an art that has been passed down from generation to generation; it acts as a way to express emotion or to show a message to readers. In 2017, it is not as popular as it was in the past as many believe it is a common art left behind in the new era of technology. Although many students may call it it to be boring or something they are not interested in, it does have some relevance in today's world. Poetry can show the reader true emotional perspective, just by reading a single stanza. Today, most people are afraid to show what they are feeling. If just a few words on paper allow an individual to be free, then yes, in 2017 poetry is still relevant. Secondly, formulating poetry requires specific mental skills; skills in showing complex thoughts, using poetic devices, and many more literary techniques. This knowledge is something every student can benefit and grow from as an individual. Some may call it old school, but the benefits of learning poetry will remain relevant for a very long time.
The question is: Is poetry relevant in the year 2005? I personally feel that poetry is what a person makes of it. Some people hate poetry so they do not read it at all. Other people (like me) love poetry so in my world and theirs it is relevant. To teenagers today poetry and reading has been taken over by T.V, movies and music. Poetry is not as relevant to people today because before there was not T.V and movies, now a days people do not have to sit down and read to entertain themselves they can just flip a switch to watch T.V.
How many U.S. families are in thousands of dollars of debt due to the outrageous costs of healthcare? People are steering clear of medical attention that they know they need because they want to avoid this debt that they will inevitably get into. There is a solution for these people that need relief from their physical and financial problems. Socialized medicine is a system in which the government owns and regulates all aspects of the healthcare industry, which gives the common people a chance to get the medical attention they need.
One of the most demonized terms in American political discourse is 'socialism.' When various healthcare reform proposals are being discussed, it is common to condemn them as 'socialized medicine' if they call for greater government intervention to enable universal coverage of all Americans. However, socialized medicine refers to a very specific system of providing healthcare and virtually no American politician has dared to propose what would constitute a truly 'socialized' system of medicine. Additionally, many nations exist which provide universal coverage for all citizens without deploying a single-payer system. It is important to understand truly what socialized medicine 'is' and what it is not, as well as its benefits and detriments, when debating healthcare policy in America.
“I’m a poet and didn’t even know it,” was something an old teacher would say after he said something and it rhymed. Poetry is a great way to express yourself, it does not have to rhyme or have reason behind it, just let it flow off the tip of your tongue. When reading a poem, the author will use imagery to enable you to let your senses run wild. In the poem “The Facebook Sonnet” by Sherman Alexie, it talks about Facebook and how it has consumed our lives and the lives of the younger generation. Although it brings people together, it will also tear them apart. Figurative language was not addressed in this poem, through the authors word choice it was blunt and honest. The symbol and theme behind the whole poem is that everyone is online nowadays instead of spending personal time with their loved ones. The tone and sound is smooth and easy going. It is definitely something that everyone on social media should read. I
Besides the general purpose of providing healthcare to all, the idea of government healthcare is that there is a single-payer as opposed to multiple insurance companies as well as government payers. All citizens are considered insured and only charged based on each individual’s “ability to pay” (MacDonald, 2013). This insurance would be paid for by the single-payer, the government, though the taxation of its citizens. Examples of this type of system can be seen in countries such as Canada and Sweden, as well as our own Department of Veterans Affairs ' VA health system. The idea of a nation-wide single-payer system has remained fairly popular in the United States due to the popularity and acceptance of the government’s Medicare program. In MacDonald’s article, “Healthcare reform: Socialized medicine?”, he quotes Deborah Chollet, a senior fellow at Mathematica Policy Research in Washington, D.C.: "No matter where you move in the country, you keep your Medicare," she says. "It allows you to go to any doctor or hospital you choose, and it 's not wildly expensive given the relatively expensive population it serves." (2013) Opinions such as these are what is fueling the desire of U.S. citizens to evolve our multi-payer system into a universal single-payer system. This would eliminate competing private insurance plans and exclusion of patients from coverage due to their existing health status (Kemble, 2012). Overall, a single-payer system appears to be a more equal, streamline
Socialized Medicine and the Health Care Reform are two different types of Health Care programs. Socialized includes everything related to Health Care, where the Health Care Reform cover mainly health insurance and cutting cost. One form of socialized medicine is Great Britain National Health Service or NHS.
In his essay “Why A&E Should Put “Duck Dynasty’s” Racist Homophobe Back on the Air”, Richard Kim argues that in order to fight racism and homophobia, racist homophobic bigots like Phil Robertson from “Duck Dynasty” should get more media exposure; his exact words are “[Duck Dynasty] should show Robertson being as homophobic as he pleases, in his home, his church, his community.” (Kim 2) His opinion is that people should see “the whole picture – homophobia included” in order to fully understand that people still believe as Robertson does, and hence fight racism and homophobia. (Kim 3) I agree with Robertson that in order to fight racism and homophobia people should see the whole picture – people need to see that racism is still very much alive in order to fight it. But I also believe, that in order to fight homophobia, it would be more effective if homosexuals themselves are portrayed more on TV.
impacts the quality of life we seek to obtain and share with future generations. “If everybody became a poet, the world would be much better.” Ms. Giovanni mused, but her statement rang true.
Mainstream culture in America is constantly evolving. Family structures have changed over time with more single parent families. Support from extended family members have become minimum. Many parents are isolated with limited resources and support. This is especially true for parents who have children with behavioral problems. Parents that have children with behavior problems experience additional stress that contributes to their parenting abilities, their perceptions of their children, their relationship or bond with their children and their children’s behavior.
The United Sates’ economy has endured several periods of collapse; but periods of regrowth and prosperity as well. However, the rise of income inequality over the past decade has become a major economic issue in America, affecting 99% of working citizens. With an increasing gap in income inequality between the top 1% and bottom 99% of citizens, negative repercussions Americas health care system are becoming more prominent. Income inequality has resulted in higher health insurance premiums (the most expensive of any developed country) and a lack in the quality of health care one receives. Rising health care costs, along with a poor quality of health care being provided for low-income families is resulting in a greater increase in the income

The mass media refers to means of communicating with large numbers of people without direct personal contract. The mass media is a major source of information and ideas. Theses can shape people’s attitudes and so some degree directs their behaviour. Mass media in this modern time industrial society is a powerful instrument of social control.
First of all, the term musical poem is a bit of an oxymoron. It is trying to give lyrics a new term, but poems were never meant to be set to music. They were, and still are, meant to be a romantic way of expressing emotion. The fact that they do not have to adhere to
