    To put it in perspective, in the first quarter of fiscal 2015, comparable sales increased by 12%. The recent growth comes on top of an impressive fiscal 2015, wherein comparable sales grew by 20% for the full year" (Schlossberg). This may indicate that perhaps women actually like seeing somewhat accurate representations of themselves in advertising. However, there have been many opposing opinions throughout history on what stereotype would accurately describe what beautiful looks like. During a 20-year period that spanned the late 19th and early 20th century in the United States and Canada, The Gibson Girl was the personification of the feminine ideal of physical attractiveness as portrayed by the illustrations of artist Charles Dana Gibson. From the 1890s until World War I, the glamorous Gibson Girl set the standard for beauty, fashion, and manners (Library of Congress). The Gibson Girl embodies the same concept as modern day super models. It is also compared to today's “Girl Next Door”, both of these stereotypes limit what the appearance of an everyday women is expected to be like. The hope for future generations is for these beauty stereotypes to be diminished and for any body type to be celebrated. Media should reflect life, life should not reflect media.

    Vacation Mission Statement

    • 1044 Words
    • 5 Pages

    A vacation without a prior plan, a pilot without a map, or a family without a mission statement, leads to chaos rather than a destination. A sense of direction and a common purpose to work toward is what a vacation, pilot, and family need to function fully and vibrantly. A vacation without some sort of planning will result in wasting the vacation time because of undecided decisions that need to be made upon arrival. A pilot without a map becomes aimless flying; a family with no mission statement…

This seemed very genuine, he takes a break from his “mad” rant, in which he constantly repeats “get thee to a nunnery.” He pauses and takes the time to show his love for Ophelia. This pause reveals to Ophelia there is sanity behind his madness, and that he is putting on a show. Because of the sudden break, the audience may be confused on…
