In the article, “Parting at the Crossroads: The Development of Health Insurance in Canada and the United States” the author Antonia Maioni argues various points as to why Canada and the United States of America have such different approaches to targeting the healthcare system. The topics covered by Maioni included, “Health Reform in Canada: The Role of the CCF-NDP”. Here Maioni discuses in great detail, the historical background to how Canada got to where they are in the health system through the ups and downs that occurred in Parliament due to “the public demand for action on medical insurance” which was influenced by the highly successful medical insurance program that existed in Saskatchewan post-world war.

Three women sit in a room and idly chat about their love lives. One wears a mini skirt with a low-cut blouse and ruby-red lipstick. She places her heels on top of the table and speaks of the many men she has loved. Another dons golden hair that falls in soft waves against her rosy-pink cheeks and blue eyes. She speaks in a low voice and gushes about how much attention she receives from the opposite sex and her particular affection for one young man. The third wears faded layered garments with unkempt grey locks loosely fitted into a braid. She describes the life of an old woman knitting needles and still waiting on the right man to knock on her door. These three distinct women can all be found in society today.

The cadets are steadfast men who are ready to fight, but the firemen are a bunch of goofy adults that really have no clue to what they are doing. Roxanne?s astronomer hobby and job gives her the air of being intelligent and intellectual just like Rostand?s Roxanne has. Le Bret and Raganeau morphed into the more modern character, Dixie. She takes on the role of being Charlie Bales? confident and most trusted friend. In this story, Dixie plays a key role to the plot by giving Roxanne the letter Charlie wrote. She slyly put Charlie?s name on the back so that Roxanne would finally figure out it was Charlie, not Chris, who is an intellectual mastermind. Giving the characters and setting a modern angle helps the present society relate to the masterpiece by Rostand.

The Victorian period marked the first traces of progress in the feminist movement, and poet Christina Rossetti embraced the advancement as her own long-established principles slowly became publicly acceptable. Her poem "Goblin Market" comments on the institutions in Victorian society that she and her feminist contemporaries wished to see altered, creating modern female heroines to carry out its messages. The goblins serve as malicious male figures to tempt the innocent heroines, sisters Laura and Lizzie, to corruption.

It adds obstacles to her life which might lead to them drifting apart in their friendship, even complete separation.

They still have old connections, though being from Bohemia did change Antonia’s life and where it could have gone.
There are a lot of barriers that existence within human nature. The most profound barrier that exists is the language barrier. As human, we are met to communicate with one another.
