    In all of her ideas, only one of them stood out to her and probably was the most realistic idea of them all. That idea was to make machines that would eventually be distributed all across the globe. She would call them “Equalizer”. There would be different types of Equalizers with different purposes. For a young girl, she is amazing at programming, which will help her create the Equalizers. She might have gotten this talent from her parents since they work for a company that produces electronics. In order to start making the Equalizers, Diana had to list different types of Equalizers. This is what she got: People who are smarter, people who are stronger, people who are handsome or pretty, people with better eyesight, and people who are shorter. She thought that making the Equalizer for the people who are smarter is interesting. She started on it right away. This type of Equalizer’s purpose was to make people lose their train of thought by making loud and sounds that will capture one’s attention. Think back to her parents, her parents made a lot of electronics for the company, such as phones, headphones, earphones, and computers. That would give her a head start. When she got one of these electronics, she would already have a model that…

    “The Equalizer” directed by Antoine Fuqua is a unique Action- Thriller. It is unique in the way certain aspects of “Mise-en-scene” are used. This film is different from those you usual see in this genre because, in the beginning, it doesn’t jump right into the action. The Director takes his time showing us what type of characters the main characters are like, especially the lead character. He makes sure to show us that he is a meticulous and calculated person from the way he shaves his head, to…

    From the beginning of Frederick Douglass's Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass, Douglass faces racial segregation, especially in education. Douglass isn't allowed basic information, like who is his father, because he is born a slave "the means of knowing was withheld from me" (1).

    or the “bottom of the hill.” Low-income students, however, do not have access to the same resources that enable for them to become successful. Most do not have academic help sessions, rigorous SAT prep, or even a support system in their schools. Even those that do have a successful high school trajectory have to worry about the burdens of college tuition afterwards. Most cannot afford to go to their ideal colleges due to a lack of networks or resources. This is a lamentable reality that…

    (p.92). He saw education as the cure or equalizer, which allowed the lower class to obtain their own property. Mann’s assertion is that when this happens there will be less moral decay and hatred in society. Mann wrote that “for the existence of a wealthy people and a wealthy nation intelligence is the grand condition” (p. 94). A nation of republicans is also depended upon education according to Mann. A people who is educated in their government is more likely to keep that government healthy and…

    Given the title of the Great Equalizer, the education system is expected to close the economic gap. The system is shaped by the very things it is expected to fix; both educational and economic inequalities. Yet when we look at our society, we see that an economic gap persists, leading scholars to questions whether education is undermining equality or facilitating it. In order to explore education as the Great Equalizer, aspects of social mobility, educational resources, and college must first be…

    the understanding of cause and effect. In the classroom, I have seen the educational benefits of using technology as a means to help autistic students connect with other persons around them. Proloquo allows non-verbal students to select pictures, or a sequence of pictures, to create sentences to communicate wants and needs. But, I have also seen it used as a pacifier. The quote by David Warlick, that heads the beginning of this section, has caused me to see technology in a more positive light.…

    School uniforms are more forced on poor student population in public schools. Forcing uniforms on the poor population is not an equalizer, it emphasizes a clearer class division distinction. This day and age class distinction cannot be distinguished by clothing because there are too many factors that go into indicating status (Wilkins 5-6). In schools where students are only required to wear certain colors, there is no doubt that kids will have some sort of indicator that distinguishes groups.…

    “We All End Up in the Same Ground” “3 Messages from Elegy” People spend their whole lives figuring out who they are and what kind of a person they will end up. We think about what is going to be said once we die, and whether or not it’s going to be good or bad things. In Elegy, he talks about what people really search in life, and it kind of turns on him where he thinks about his life and what will be said on his headstone. The three messages from his poem are; death is the great equalizer,…
