    BIG PUN: THE MOST INFLUENTIAL LATINO RAPPER Based on his achievements, I believe that Christopher Lee Rios, a.k.a. Big Pun, was the most influential Latino Rapper of all time. Rios deserves this title because he was the first Latin-American Rapper to: (1) Become a hip hop star, (2) Achieve platinum status, and (3) Be nominated for a Grammy Award. Due to his contributions he implemented in the hip hop industry, he was able to make Latino rap mainstream. This is significant because it has been claimed that rap and hip hop was dominated by African-American artists. Big Pun was a big influence in getting more Latinos interested in this genre. Rios was born in the Bronx, New York City by his two Puerto Rican parents. He grew up in the South Bronx…

    In her article “The Mechanics of Modern-Day Brand Affinity” author Christine Birkner observes Ford’s marketing strategy of attempting to appeal to children before they are even able to legally drive. She says Ford is trying to build up its brand image among children so that when the time comes for them to choose a vehicle to purchase, Ford is already the front runner. Birkner says that Ford’s focus (no pun intended) is on Generation Z. She quotes Forrester Research Inc.’s definition of…

    "Yes boss, it is the same signature. No, I am still looking into it." "I understand, a report will be ready when you return. Have a safe trip." She hung up and placed the phone into her lab coat's pocket before she slid on a new pair of rubber gloves, prepared for another long night in the cold autopsy room. No pun intended, but the cold never bothered her anyway. Securing the procedure mask over her tall nose and thin lips, she focused on the lifeless body that lay face up on the large…

    • 5 Pages

    developed characters whose significance is subtly enforced through the use of language as well as tone and metaphors. Donne’s greatest strength in “The Flea” is his structure as well as the tone he uses, his use of metaphor, and language, which is often in a sexual connotation. The speaker uses the word “deniest” within the first two lines to establish that the person he is speaking to is the guilty party, refusing something the speaker claims to need. It is made clear by his wording that that…

    Wrist and upper-arm blood pressure monitors are mainstays of the blood pressure monitor industry, but some people find them a little bit too bulky or intimidating to be of any use. Finger blood pressure monitors provide a welcome and handy (no pun intended) alternative to these more popular models. A lot of people are suspicious of finger blood pressure monitors and believe them to be unreliable and ineffective when it comes to delivering a reliable reading of one’s blood levels. While it is…

    tired. Also, from far away I think people didn’t notice I didn’t have shoes on and a couple of them, once they passed by me, had a weird look on their face, but didn’t look at me too long. Another reason they probably didn’t think anything of it was because nowadays people come to grocery stores, or stores in general, not dressed presentable, maybe wearing pajamas and slippers. So, they probably thought I was one of those types of people. Most people at least have shoes on whether they are…

    Examples CMT In Book II, Chapter 3 (342.30–32), Joyce employs the portmanteau word “swapstick”, combining the words “swap”, “stick”, “slapstick” and “swastika”: “This eeridreme has being effered to you by Bett and Tipp. Tipp and Bett, our swapstick quackchancers, in From Topphole to Bottom of The Irish Race and World.” Donaldo Schüler’s (2002, p. 303) translation of this passage retains the concept of “slapstick” with the term “fragorosos farsantes” [rackety masqueraders], but omits any…

    Pun-Chi complains about the treatment of Chinese immigrants in California. He tells us many ways in which the Chinese were not treated right. His criticism is valid, the Chinese were treated very badly, they should have all been treated the same, they are all human and people did not have any right to treat them differently just because they were Chinese. They were never welcomed the right way in other countries, they could not defend themselves because they did not speak the language and even…

    meaning it wasn’t just one certain person or group of people, it was everything the community created over the years. Also, in the article Hip-Hop is for everybody... it says “Hip-Hop does not belong to a specific race, gender, or type of people. It belongs to anyone who partakes in the culture” (Flores1). Basically that is saying if you are someone who chooses to be a part of this culture/community you deserve to say it belongs to the people. Although some people say certain groups of people…
