Intro Sample...


The sounds of blaring sirens and heavy traffic were muffled inside the Osaka Boxing Center, where all that could be heard were the heavy outcries from the audience. The grand finals to determine the Middleweight California State Champion was about to commence. The two fighters were longtime rival and friends Damon and Alfonso. Both fighters were known for their sense of compassion and nobility, especially being boxers, but recent tabloids claiming that Damon would triumph contaminated Alfonso with a sinister state. As the two boxers approached the ring, both were met with a swarm of interviewers. Despite the abundance of interviewers, they all happened to have the same question; “What are your thoughts going into this fight?”

Damon rushed towards Alfonso and proceeded to ram his right fist deep into Alfonso’s body. Gasping for air, Alfonso began to tumble over. A sharp creek produced, between Alfonso’s shoes and the ground, as he maintained his footing and prevented his second knockdown.
“Damon you Scum,” Alfonso panted as he took his right fist and swung straight towards Damon’s face. Damon barely tilted his head to avoid the straight and raised his fist to counterpunch. Damon’s swing suddenly stopped as he became paralyzed and a sharp pain grew within him. A deafening ringing roared inside Damon’s head as he began to collapse. As Damon fell backwards, he felt something on the back of his head. Alfonso’s clenched fist.
Damon’s mind began to race, That’s illegal! He struck me in the back of the head with a rabbit punch. Alfonso, why? Damon began to slip in and out consciousness. Before the darkness completely consumed him, Damon used his remaining strength to utter a few words to his former friend. “Damn you… Alfonso.”
The referee began to wave his hands and cry out, “He’s down for the count!” The bell rang, signaling Damon’s defeat. The referee raised Alfonso’s arm high into the air and stated, “The winner is Alfonso.” His declaration, however, was hardly audible due to the loud boos among the audience members. Alfonso looked down at the defeated Damon, who was still unconscious, with a menacing grin.
Hours later, Damon woke up in the middle of the night in a hospital head. There was a throbbing pain in his head, his body felt drained, and everything felt blurry. Damon did his best to ...

    Wedding Power Film Analysis

    As the theorist Michel Foucault examines history to explore the layers of structure of power, I find the history of wedding tradition to be fascinating. “He uses history to dispel the sort of routine, instituted self-assurance people have about reality of such entities as the mental disorders they fear they may be suffering from, or the inner sexual needs they believe they have to release. Foucault has examined various kinds of systems of thought through which people have come to identify themselves as subjects.”(Rajchman) And then another good quote about Michel Foucault is “For more than a d

    Network Topologies The bus topology is probably one of the most simple network topologies. It is a network architecture in which clients are all connected through a shared communication line. All of the devices are on a network and connected to a common central cable known as a bus or backbone. Some of the major advantages to using a bus topology is that it is relatively inexpensive and it has the capability to add new devices to the network by simply connecting them to the bus, making this an easy network to work with. However, if the main cable fails, the entire network will shut down. Then

    After the loss of the Crimean war in 1856, Tsar Alexander II of Russia, his people, and its surrounding major powers realized the true conditions of un-industrialized Russia. The strength of its military ended up being an illusion, and now the country faced both an incredible backwardness and a lack of credibility in its own potential in protecting itself against competitive and rival countries, bringing into question some of the very basic structures of Russian politics and society. Russia’s backwardness in all key institutions compared to surrounding great powers was massive, and the loss of

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (
