The Manicure - A Psycho-social Experience ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s in no way like Strawberry Champagne or Park Avenue Orchids to tell the world that you need to have a fabulous time. Peppermint and Funshine Pink radiate energetic honesty while Chinese Red is out and out attractive. Dark Cherry includes a touch of genuine refinement to an effectively compelling aura. What's more, for those all the more smooth states of mind, Grand Canyon Sunset and Beach Blanket Mauve make certain to have an alleviating sway. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s valid. Nail shading can reflect the inward sentiments and feelings of the individual wearing it. Truth be told, there is a whole mental measurement to nailsÃ¢â¬mental wellbeing being an essential motivation behind why individuals get nail treatments. Scarcely any individuals will confess to completing their nails exclusively for sterile purposes. My motivation for completing my nails is two-crease. Getting a nail treatment once a month keeps my nails sound and gives my hands a gentler and cleaner look, in any event, when my nails are not cleaned. Other than that, however, itÃ¢â¬â¢s an unwinding and fun blessing I provide for myself. I figure that on the off chance that I donÃ¢â¬â¢t go through $15.00 every month on myself, who will? Individuals are continually revealing to me that getting a nail treatment is an exercise in futility and cash and that I could do my nails myself and give to noble cause the cash I Ã¢â¬Å"wasteÃ¢â¬ every month. IÃ¢â¬â¢ll give twice as much cash to noble cause, yet I will not surrender this valuable month to month custom. I am not by any means the only one liable of enjoying this custom. Alongside my individual Ã¢â¬Å"manicurees,Ã¢â¬ I have made an individual interest in a billion-dollar business that has cleared the U.S. as of late. Every day, this developing part of the individual help industry is answerable for causing many hands and individuals look and to feel essentially divine. The act of nail co... ...o me. My nails looked fine; indeed, they looked extraordinary. Be that as it may, that wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t the point. The fact of the matter was I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t feel loose, spoiled, extraordinary, and greatÃ¢â¬like I for the most part did after a nail treatment. Nail trims are tied in with looking incredible and feeling extraordinary. Base coat isn't basic, and having your arms kneaded is really an extravagance one can manage without. Manicurists are paid to give their customer a nail treatment, yet notwithstanding the nail treatment the customer gets an encounter which gives a chance to unwind, tattle, tell somebody her issues, or do whatever she wants to do. Red tips at the Indus Valley, cleaning powder in Paris, fluid nail clean in New York, Fire and Ice across America, and nail salons in rural towns all make them thing in like manner. They are tied in with accomplishing a bonus for yourself. Extraordinary looking nails arenÃ¢â¬â¢t a need; theyÃ¢â¬â¢re an extravagance.

The 1980Ã¢â¬â¢s The time of the 1980Ã¢â¬â¢s is generally known for its splendidly hued stockings, and prodded hair. Notwithstanding, the vast majority of us tend overlook the occasions that roused these generally perceived patterns. Political force, financial unsteadiness, and Sequins, trim, and tutuÃ¢â¬â¢s are simply a hallucination of what the eighties were genuinely about. The social and monetary occasions of the 1980Ã¢â¬â¢s severy affected the design decisions of American ladies during this time. The political occasions in America all through the eighties will consistently be recalled when saying one straightforward, yet very stuffed name, Ronald Reagan. In 1981 Reagan was chosen with one of the nations most elevated generally speaking acknowledgment rates. Reagan was a previous Hollywood entertainer his mystique and idealistic style wore off on individuals and America adored him. We will consistently recollect. We will consistently be pleased. We will consistently be readied, so we may consistently be free. [at the D-Day Commemoration in Normandy] Reagan had a direct, to the point that republicans adored and democrats regarded. With Reagans political race came guarantees of a splendid future for the US, similar to tax reductions and lower spending. [G]overnment's perspective on the economy could be summarized in a couple of short expressions: If it moves, charge it. On the off chance that it continues moving, control it. What's more, on the off chance that it quits moving, s ponsor it. [Reagan talking about the White House Conference on Small Business] However a little while later, military spending started to rise, causing eliminates from positions and some assessment increments. These and different decisions Ronald Reagan made in office got known as Ã¢â¬Å"Reaganomics.Ã¢â¬ The way of life was changing all through this time too, a slang term known as the Ã¢â¬Å"yuppieÃ¢â¬ was conceived. This term was usually used to portray a child of post war America, with an advanced degree, well p... ...ng an announcement any place they went and the originators of today are despite everything attempting to highlight the body and communicate sexuality. Advertisement battle plans were changed remarkably during the 1980Ã¢â¬â¢s by receiving that pitching an item with a captivating lady, home, or family would make the requirement for buyers to purchase a decent or administration exclusively with the end goal of have having a superior way of life. This publicizing thought went through the most recent couple of decades is as yet present in the American culture today. The convictions of the eighties were strengthening and gave adolescences the decision to be anything they desired to be. Regardless of whether that was a pop-symbol, an innovator, or a government official, the 1980Ã¢â¬â¢s was a period of strengthening and positive thinking. These principals are still educated to youngsters in our general public today lecturing the estimations of self-esteem and steadiness to follow thei r fantasies.

Science Fiction Short Stories to Read Online (And Where to Find Them) Were really in a second golden age of science fiction short stories, with multiple excellent outlets that not only publish these stories, but put them online for free. Heres a list of a few good stories to get you startedâ"which, trust me, is just scraping the surface of all that was excellent in 2017â"and more importantly where you can look for more! So rather than as a long list of just stories, well link you to a publication and give you a couple examples of their offerings. Please note that this list, presented in no particular order, is non-exhaustive and Ive focused mostly on places that pay their writers pro rates. Lightspeed Lightspeed is an online magazine that publishes both science fiction and fantasy short stories. Theyre also the originators of Women Destroy Science Fiction, a immensely successful project that was a reaction to jerks on the internet whinging that women were ruining science fiction with their lady something-or-others. (Which launched into other great Kickstarted special issues, Queers Destroy Science Fiction and People of Colo(u)r Destroy Science Fiction.) The Greatest One-Star Restaurant in the Whole Quadrant by Rachael K Jones Later, Lets Tear Up the Inner Sanctum by A. Merc Rustad Uncanny Uncanny is the official magazine of Space Unicorns everywhere. They publish a mix of science fiction and fantasy thats weird and meaty and always beautifully written. Theyve also taken up the Destroy mantel from Lightspeed, with their upcoming Disabled People Destroy Science Fiction successfully kickstarted in July (and about to enter its reading period for stories). Fandom for Robots by Vina Jie-Min Prasad Henosis by NK Jemisin Daily Science Fiction Daily Science Fiction not only publishes all their stories online, but if you sign up for their mailing list theyll send them directly to your email, one per weekday. Because of the frequency of publication, they mostly publish flash fiction. And it should be noted that even though science fiction is in their name, its actually a mix of scifi, fantasy, and borderline horror. Two lists discovered folded in the wallet of space explorer Jorge Finnegan after the Reliant wreckage was recovered from Tau Ceti e by Sylvia Spruck Wrigley Saudade by Cassandra Khaw Apex Magazine Apex Magazine tends toward the darker end of the science fiction and fantasy spectrum, sometimes going into borderline horror. But the darkness can be so lovely, and when they step into the light theyre delightfully strange and bitingly beautiful. Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experienceâ¢ by Rebecca Roanhorse Say, She Toy by Chesya Burke Escape Pod Escape Pod is a little different because their emphasis is on publishing audio science fiction in a free-to-download podcast. The text of each story is also available on their website, however. Red in Tooth and Cog by Cat Rambo The Wind You Touch When You Run by James Beamon Shimmer Shimmer cover, 2017 Shimmer publishes fantasy, science fiction, and some almost-unclassifiable-but-still-definitely-genre stuff, with the emphasis on it having an indefinable but still definite shimmery quantity. Feathers and Void by Charles Payseur The Atomic Hollows and the Bodies of Science by Octavia Cade Strange Horizons Strange Horizons is venerable as online magazines go and tends to look for the different, daring, and unusual. They publish a mix of science fiction, fantasy, and the occasional bit of horror that catches their ear, ranging from the deep to the sublimely ridiculous. Krace is Not a Highway by Scott Vanyur Airswimming by Aisha Phoenix These Constellations Will Be Yours by Elaine Cuyegkeng Clarkesworld Clarkesworld is another long-running magazine that has a particular stylistic twist of weirdness to its stories, both science fiction and fantasy. Back issues are easily available on the website under the appropriately named tab. Prasetyo Plastics by DA Xiaolin Spires The Secret Life of Bots by Suzanne Palmer GiGaNoToSaurus GigaNotoSaurus is a bit of an oddity because its not really short fiction as suchâ¦it tends to publish novellettes and novellas, really focusing on great fiction that tends to be a bit too long for most of the other venus. Because of the mighty length of most of the stories, they only tend to publish one per month. They publish both fantasy and science fiction. With Perfect Clarity by Wendy N. Wagner Salvage by Tracy Canfield Tor.com Tor.com has already made its name publishing SFF novellas with its imprint, but it also has a lot of great essays on its siteâ"and regular installments of science fiction short stories and fantasy as well. Theyve got the freedom to do a lot of lengths, so youll find both very short and nearly novella-length on the site. Original fiction index can be found here, labeled for ease of finding the flavor you like. The Future of Hunger in an Age of Programmable Matter by Sam J Miller Waiting on a Bright Moon by JY Yang Sanctuary by Allen Steele Fireside Fiction Fireside Fiction is a very fierce outlet with a strong point of view (check out their statement of values, which is A+) that does absolutely ferocious science fiction and fantasy. They do quite a bit of flash fiction to go along with their short stories. Also worthy of noting that since 2015 they have been commissioning yearly reports on the representation of Black authors in speculative fiction to track the very real underrepresentation problem. Caesura by Hayley Stone Regarding Your Future With The Futures Planning Consortium by Raq Winchester Fran Wilde We Who Stay Behind by Karl Dandenell Terraform Terraform is a project of Motherboard that focuses on science fiction short stories, particularly near-future work. What they publish has a broad tonal range even if its one of the most focused in terms of its genre. Dark was the night, and cold the ground by Miguel FernÃ¡ndez-Flores The Wretched and the Beautiful by E. Lily Yu If youre looking for a place to check out science fiction short story reviews (also fantasy and horror) to get recommendations or ideas on other places to look, I heartily recommend Charles Payseurs Quick Sip Reviews. Natalie Luhrs has a short fiction review series at her blog. Locus Online also does short fiction issue reviews. Also worth noting: Book Riot has a great list of science fiction short story collections by authors of color that you might want to check out!

Have you ever wondered about what a product or a medicine goes through before it gets to us on the store shelves? Products from deodorant to Viagra to weed killer go through years of tests before a regulating body decides they are safe for us to use. The FDA approves drugs and cosmetics and he EPA regulates chemicals that are used and may be harmful to the environment. However before these products are even considered by these regulatory bodies they must go through years of testing. Testing that is unfortunately done on defenseless animals. Each year 50 to 100 million vertebrate animals, such as mice, rats, rabbits, cats and dogs are used in experiments to test products such as medicines, lipstick, household cleaners and pesticides.Ã¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦This type of test is disturbing due to the fact that there are several highly sensitive non-animal tests that can be done to detect chemical-induced genetic mutations but the government still requires companies to poison a nimals to see whether or not they will develop cancer. The standard test of the kind is the Ã¢â¬Å"rodent cancer bioassay.Ã¢â¬ Mice and rats are subjected to a lifetime of chemical exposure to the chemicals in all new or reformulated pesticides, food additives, and drugs. Studies have proven that these tests are found to have more than a 70 percent false-positive rate. The final group of tests that are performed on animals is product tests. No law requires that cosmetics and household products be tested on animals however, the FDA does urge companies to conduct whatever tests are necessary to establish that their products are safe and the Consumer Safety Product Commission that regulates household products does not require animal testing yet many companies do it anyway. I have saved what I feel is the most cruel aspect of animals testing is that done on primates.

Idolatry was not the only accusation made by God against Israel and Judah. Corruption had become the norm for the priest, leaders, businessmen, and common man alike. The people of these nations cared only about what they had and wanted. They would lie, cheat, steal, and even kill to get what they wanted. Their priests would only teach if they were paid. God gave the priests a position of trust and responsibility to be the caretakers of the people. They were supposed to be the shepherds, not the oppressors, of GodÃ¢â¬â¢s people. Instead, they turned their backs on GodÃ¢â¬â¢s law and began selling themselves for money, power, and approval while they hid behind the appearance of righteousness. God warned them that all of the wealth and possessions they had prostituted themselves to get would once again be used to buy other prostitutes. This statement may be confusing to some so look at what God is saying. The people of Israel sold their integrity, morals, and beliefs for pleasure, popularity, and personal gain. God is now telling them that all of these things will be taken from them and Satan will use them to lure other people into the same type of prostitution. GodÃ¢â¬â¢s warnings and accusations that are recorded in the books of the Major and Minor Prophets are not just for these ancient Kingdoms. They apply to our world today.

Entrepreneurship is the tendency of a person to organize his own business and run it profitably, exploiting the qualities of leadership, decision making, managerial caliber, etc. Risk Talking Risk-taking In Its true sense Indicates that risk Is Ignored In taking decisions and actions. We should rightfully use the word Ã¢â¬Ërisk averseÃ¢â¬â¢ for the entrepreneurs. We will write a custom essay sample on Impact of motivation on employee performance or any similar topic only for you Order Now Risk averseness implies taking Ã¢â¬ËcalculatedÃ¢â¬â¢ risk and expecting premium for the risk taken. As the risk goes up the expected premium in return also goes up at a higher rate. Calculated risk means a few things, namely, Determining how much risk one should take. Risk taking ability of a rich person Is higher than that of a poor person. Still, two equally rich persons In equal situations may not equally perceive the risk in a given opportunity. 0 Risk assessment is equally important. 0 Risk mitigation is the final step that a risk-averse person would consider while taking calculated risk. Risk mitigation means taking steps to manage risk. For example, Insurance against non-business Is essential; Identify non-business risks and insure them. Sense of limits In every society people develop sense of limits from parents, friends and roundingÃ¢â¬â¢s. These are the limits of what we can do and what we cannot, and what we can accomplish and what we cannot. Such sense of limit Is a result of social permissiveness at a given point of time In a society. On one side, developing such sense of limit is desirable because without adhering to social norms a society cannot function as a civilized society. On the other, the same sense of limit would impose more Ã¢â¬ËdonÃ¢â¬â¢tÃ¢â¬â¢ than Ã¢â¬ËdosÃ¢â¬â¢. Entrepreneurs are different. Hem do not abide by the limits recognized by the society or they fight against these limits. CLC Locus of control There are two types of people in the world- (I) those who blame others and external situations for whatever happens with them, and those who believe that they could have done something better to avoid certain situations that happened with them. The first type of behavior of people is called Ã¢â¬Ëexternal locus of controlÃ¢â¬â¢ and the second Ã¢â¬ËInternal locus of controlÃ¢â¬â¢. It Is obvious from the definition that entrepreneurs have Ã¢â¬ËInternal locus of controlÃ¢â¬â¢. The sense of Internal locus of control gives tremendous to learn from failures rather than accepting fate. 0 Control of future Entrepreneurs are always in control of the situation. Their responses to the unfolding situations are more matured rather than like reactions. This gives them control over the current period as well as the future. Creators Entrepreneurs create ideas, businesses and organizations. Often they like businesses that are unique compared to the routine ones. They like challenges and deal with them in a unique or creative way. Entrepreneurs are good at startups. Need for achievement We would like to include one more characteristic over what Hofmann listed; and that is entrepreneurÃ¢â¬â¢s need for achievement. Entrepreneurs do not start business for making money. Money and profits are not his primary goals. Their passion, thus, is to convert their dreams into reality. 0 Ethics This is yet another characteristic that Hofmann did not discuss. Can anything substitute ethics for a successful person? Can an entrepreneur be unethical and still make long-term success and attain his need for attainment? A true entrepreneur, since he is not driven by motives of profits but needs to achieve or do something different for getting sense of satisfaction, will demonstrate high degree of business ethics. Ethical game is necessary for a long-term player in the business of innovation. Q. 2Ã¢â¬ ¦.. Business plan is a written description of the business. It is comprehensive in nature and comprises details like promoters, existing and proposed products and/or services, know-how and techniques intended to use, among others. A brief description of contents of business plan. Description of venture: For an existing business, the details like date of establishment, Journey over time with significant milestones, employee data, sales and profit data over time (if history is too long then selected period of say, five yearsÃ¢â¬â¢ tat would be enough), organization structure, operating philosophy, vision and mission statements, and details of enabling factors are important. 0 Operations plan: Several o perations have to be carried out with a view to succeed in providing products and services. The business activity must be clearly broken down into the discreet operations and details must be provided how those operations will be performed given the resources. If the operations plan fail then production plan would also automatically fail. 0 Production plan: In case of manufacturing activity, the details of technology and its ministrations, success factors, realistic assumptions regarding utilization of plant capacity supported with evidences from other businesses, processes, manpower of material and several other details that can have an impact on production would become an essential part of production plan. Organizational plan: In the absence of strong organizational backing the most lucrative business can also fail measurably. Business operates in a very dynamic environment, whether internal or external. A business organization must develop capability of capturing information regarding the changing external variable that may effect the current business or future opportunit ies of the business. Marketing plan: A business needs to define a market in terms of geographical area or demographic details of potential customers or consumers. Market feasibility report would help in identifying the scope of business opportunity, and from that canvass, a businessman has to determine the right segment of market wherein he would like to do business. Promotion plan, distribution network and other marketing policies are useful in evaluating the potential market for the goods and services offered by the business. Financial plan: The contents of the business plan are now converted into the financial numbers to present the financial plan. The financial plan gives income statements and balance-sheets for the projected period, depreciation schedule, interest payment schedule, working capital schedule, disability schedule, cash flow statements, working capital financing schedule and schedule of funds to be raised and serviced. The financial plan also includes calculation of several ratios that are useful in the evaluation of funding options. 0 Assessment of risks: The production and marketing plans are usually prepared on he most realistic scenario. If actual scenario turns out to be better than anticipated (sales price is higher, sales quality is higher, expenses are lower, among others), then there is a positive surplus profit. But what if things do not turn out as good as estimates and cost of project goes up, cost of capital is higher, enough capital is not available, sales price remain low, sales quantity is less, expenses are higher, skilled people are not available, among others. The assessment of down-side impact of risk must be assessed, if not upside reward of risk. Q. 3Ã¢â¬ ¦ AnswerÃ¢â¬ ¦.. Marketing is a function over which we can have only an influencing power but hardly any control over the outcome. Therefore, marketing function is very important especially for a new enterprise. The market analysis is done before a business plan is prepared and it is included in the business plan, I. E. , at the project phase of a proposed business. Market Assessment base, primarily aimed at checking whether there is gap between demand and supply if the product or service that will be offered by the entrepreneur is an existing product with or without modifications. In case of a new product, the market assessment at time is Just an informed evaluation of potential market. Market assessment aims at defining the market that would be most appropriate for the product and that would give strongest opportunity for the long-term growth. This involves matching the product with customer needs. This strategy of defining the market segment for you is derived from customer research and competitive analysis. 0 Impact of Market Dynamics An entrepreneur must understand the market dynamics. Conceptually, demand and supply determine the price. Demand and supply constantly change and, therefore, pricing mechanism becomes dynamic, which is called market dynamics. Several factors play a role in affecting supply and demand and thereby, the prices of products. CompetitorsÃ¢â¬â¢ price, income level, employment level, inflation, production level, government policies and a host of other factors individually and collectively affect the pricing of a product. 0 Achieving Market Acceptance The proof of success is finally in attaining the sales level at profitable conditions. The essence of it is in achieving market acceptance of products and services. Start-ups eave a greater risk in achieving market acceptance than the firms already in business. However, for the existing business too market acceptance of a new product is risky. 0 Day-to-Day Operation There are several aspects of day-to-day operations.

The Use of Force The point of view in the story The Use of Force is in first person narrative. This conveys inner the inner thoughts of the narrator as the doctor. The doctor is a reliable narrator and an observer. I feel that his personality is brought out in the doctor. So the doctors thoughts and behaviors are a reflection of the authors. As for the setting it takes place at a familys home. I think it takes place somewhere in the early 1900s. I think it would make a difference to the story if it were set somewhere else, only because if the sick girl was brought to like a hospital for xample, maybe she would have been diagnosed and helped sooner without all the hassle that occurred at the house. The diction of the story is simple. It doesnt seem too complicated and is easy to make sense of. We will write a custom essay sample on The Use of Force or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page The author makes his points, and plot of the story clear and easy to understand. The personality of the Doctor is thoughtful. He comes into the house trying to help the sick girl, but after he realizes how shes behaving his personality starts to change. He gets a lot less patient and angrier. The mothers personality is sort of frantic and nervous. Shes worried about her child, and when the doctor has to use other methods of helping her, she starts to become more worrisome and a little annoying. The fathers personality is kind of concealed but nervous too about his daughter. He doesnt seem to show much emotion. The daughters personality is concealed and aggressive. I think the doctors personality has he most dramatic change in the story. Like I said, he comes into the house ready to help someone, and after all the being shut out by the child, he starts to get angrier and his thoughts become a little more arker. The conflict in the story is trying to help this little girl. I feel like the conflict changes when the girl becomes more aggressive and wont give in to getting help. The conflict reaches a climax at the end when the doctor struggles to get the girls mouth open and she refuses. The resolution is when the wooden stick breaks, so he uses a metal spoon and he finally gets her mouth open and fgures out what was wrong with her. The effect that this plot had on the story is that it put the focus on the girl and doctor. I think the theme to the story is irony. The reason I think its irony is because of the conflict between the doctor and the girl. You would expect a doctor to be gentle and trustful. Thats the way it starts out in the story but when the girl starts refusing medical attention, the doctor must use methods of forcing her. Thats where the name The Use of Force plays in. the theme does provide insight on the human condition, it shows that under a certain amount of stress, or anger, your mindset or personality could change instantly. I dont think any of the characters experienced an epiphany. A Visit Of Charity. The point of view in the story A visit of Charity is in the third person narrative. I the little girl, Marians, point of view. I think Marian is very observant. She noticed a lot of things throughout the story. Like the relationship between the old women. The condition of the room, the way the old women spoke to each other. I dont think her personality has much effect on whats going on with the old women. The story takes place in an old womens home. Not too sure when this story takes place. It doesnt give too much detail on that. I think it would change the story a lot if he location were changed. Marian wouldnt of been able to observe or communicate with the old women if it were somewhere else, the way she did at the old womens home. I dont think it would of made sense anywhere else. The dictation Marians personality is very shy, scared, and nervous throughout the story. The first old womens personality was very outgoing, talkative and she liked to communicate. The second old women, Addie, was bitter, angry and very pessimistic. No, I dont think any of the characters personalities changed in the story. So it didnt effect the point of the story. Something that really puzzled me in the story was when the first old lady ran after Marian in the hall and sort of grabbed her by her hair and asked her for a penny. I didnt understand that point and I dont think it made much sense to the story. The conflict in the story is when Marian actually goes into the old womens room. The conflict isnt very clear, but its very obvious there is a problem. The first old women is very outgoing, and the second old women, is angry, and bitter. So theres a bit of clashing going on with them and it shows when they spoke to each other. The vents that led up to the plot are Marian going into the Old womens home, being in the room and communicating with them til finally she gets so scared she runs out. The theme of this story is also irony. Everything in the story conveyed the theme irony, only because everything seemed like the opposite of what it should have been. For instance when Marian goes to the old womens home for charity. The purpose of charity is to help people who cant help themselves, or to do something nice for someone. In the story, Marian isnt doing it to be helpful, she is only visiting the old omen for extra points for her campfire girls. Another example of the irony was the old women constantly disagreed or contradicted each other. One old women was overly optimistic and ignorant of Addles constant negativity and rudeness towards her. You would expect that since they are roommates and they have no one but each other, that they would get along more and respect each other more, but thats obviously not the case. The theme does provide insight on the human condition because I think that everyone portrays a little bit of irony in what they do. I dont think ny of the characters had an epiphany during the story. The Gift of Sweat The point of view in the story The Gift of Sweat is in first person narrative. What this adds to the story is that the author herself might Just be the character in the story. The author/character is in fact a reliable narrator, she is very descriptive and detailed. The story I think mainly takes place in Ricks apartment, although the story does period that it takes place, that is not very clear. I think changing the setting of the story would effect it. I think since it takes place at Ricks apartment, it kind of epresents a stronger relationship between the two. It gives off the sense that theres something between them, personally. If it were changed, for example like at a restauraunt or school, it wouldnt give off that vibe of the two being so close and somewhat intimate with eachother? It seems intimate only becaause of how the women goes to Ricks apartment, and at the end when he gets her a gift. The diction of the story The personality of Ricks women friend is caring and maybe somehow affectionate. Ricks personality is similar. They both are also very friendly with each other. Ricks haracter does change in the story, I think it happens when he suddenly gets sick. He becomes more weak and his personality seems like it changed also. The conflict in the story is when Rick suddenly gets sick. I didnt realize he was sick from aids, til I read the student analysis of the story in the textbook, so thats when I fgured out what was wrong with him. I main events leading up to the plot arent shown in the story, its sort of told to you. The story talks about Ricks friend Barry, who we later find out is Ricks lover. It starts from there. Barry dies from AIDS, and its nferred that Rick now has AIDS. The story reaches its climax when the lady friend comes to Ricks apartment and finds him sick. The resolution I think is when he goes to the hospital. I think the theme in this story is friendship. Im not 100% sure but im not getting any other ideas on it. The reason I think its friendship is because these two people share a close bond with eachother, and when one gets sick, the other tried to make things as easy as possible for the other friend. Like when Rick went to the hospital, the lady friend stayed behind at his apartment and cleaned for him, and
