In the novel “Animal Farm” there were seven commandments that the animals had to
know. The animals knew and had to abide by these commandments. In life, we have a lot of
unwritten “commandments” that we should abide to as well. A few of those commandments are:
1.) Speak when entering a room. 2.) Respect your elders. 3.) Treat others how you wish to be
treated. 4.) Cover your mouth when coughing, sneezing, etc. 5.) Don’t be in people’s personal
space. 6.) Put your phone down when you’re supposed to be doing more important things. 7.)
Get it in writing. Those are just a few unwritten rules of life, but they are also very important. A
lot of our youth don’t think that these rules are important, but in all actuality, they are.
“Speak when you enter a room” is a very important rule because, first it’s extremely rude
not to do that. If you have a family like mines, and you enter anybody’s house without speaking,
they will make you walk back outside and try it again. I have a lot of cousins that don’t like to
come to my house because if they enter and not speak my mom will make them step right back
outside until they figure out what they did. When we were younger we thought that she was just
being mean, but she was teaching us that when they were younger, the elders said that when
people do that, it means that they’re invisible to you. Trust you me, none of that will be going on
in my families’ houses!
“Respect your elders” is another rule of life. I…

One of the newest songs by Katy Perry is Rise. This song has many meanings and is completely different from her other songs. Katy’s other songs are fun, and meant for parties. This song in particular has a very deep meaning to it; to rise above your fears. ” I know that together we can rise above the fear – in our country, and around the world.” – Katy Perry (McCreesh). Katy has been working on this song since her last album in 2013, and decided to finish this year. This is the first song she…
Did you miss me.....the way his deep and smooth voice said that made my legs feel like they were jelly as I grab a hold of Lysander. I felt my foot step ahead one after the other as I realize I was running towards him, arms wide apart reaching forward to him. I launched myself to him arms wrapping around his throat and the feeling of his strong arms wrapping themselves around my body. I left my head up grabbing a hold of cheeks, I look down at him into his warm brown eyes that gaze back at me…
That is a scene from the movie wolf creek. It is based on the murders committed by Ivan Milat with that scene in particular being inspired by the paralysing spinal wounds that each of his victims were found with. Milat is serving 7 consecutive life sentences at the Goulbourn Supermax prison, for the torture and murder of 7 backpackers found in the Belangalo state forest between 1992 and 1993.
Since Milat went to prison he hasn’t been any better behaved. He has attempted to escape but failed as…
Steven Berkoff, born Leslie Steven Berks in Stepney, London, on 3 August 1937, is arguably the most influential figures in shaping modern theatre. The actor, author, playwright and theatre director belonged to a family of Russian-Jewish background, and therefore added the ‘off’ back to the end of his name and opted to go by his middle name. Berkoff had a troubled childhood and often felt like he didn’t get what he wanted and in 1952 he was sentenced to a stint in borstal for stealing a…
In this paper, I aim to examine the similarities and the differences between the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 of the U.S. and the Thailand Labor Protection Act of 1998, amended 2008. Although I will not go into every section of each law, I will discuss the major provisions of each law and then analyze how the two laws play significant roles in determining the labor rights between the U.S. and Thailand. From the selected provisions of each law, I will attempt to draw a conclusion on how,…
Following our discussion, I am providing you with the below research information that I used to assist me in the drafting of a suggested bereavement leave policy. It meets the provincial regulations regarding non-paid days, paid days, eligibility, and length of service for employees working in British Columbia, Manitoba, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Employees in British Columbia take three unpaid days of leave from their job when there has been a death of a family member. The definition of…
I believe there are cases where the worker or employee has taken advantage of their FMLA and caused undue burden on their employers. First, let us list the reasons why an employee can take a Family and Medical Leave Act absence.
An employee is entitled to FMLA for the following reasons:
• The birth of a son or daughter, and to care for the new baby; or
• The placement of a child for adoption or foster care and for the worker to care for that newly placed child; or
• To tend for an…

Additionally, FMLA states employees will continue to have access to their group life insurance (Department of Labor, n.d-a). FMLA could be used for the…
