I understand San Diego recently had Comic Con come to town

 

and although there were many mini-mes I recognized many of my mini avenger buddies!

Maybe you haven’t heard but I will be in one of the biggest fights of my life along side The Avengers, The Guardians of The Galaxy, Dr. Strange and some stragglers soon. Comic Con covered it all and released a play by play!

‚ÄúCut to Queens and the hairs on the arm of a young Peter Parker stand up on end.‚ÄĚ

I guess some could say I’m¬†nervous…

ANYWAYS!

It’s absolutely¬†wild to see how much of a mark I’ve made, yet again.

Heres what the New York Times have to say about all this Spidey mania:

‚ÄúHere, Spidey is eager to do a billionaire‚Äôs bidding, partly because he‚Äôs being readied to join the Avengers. The question is when Spidey really grows up, who will he fight for and why?‚ÄĚ

Good question NYTs, guess we’ll just have to see am I right? And I’m¬†not there to do his bidding! Just around to save the world and help my Avenger friends.

Keep checking in guys! Oh and don’t¬†forget to find me on social media!

Applying Post-Colonial Literary Theory

Before the multimedia aspect of this blog, I would like to mention a brief summary of my novel “The Professor and The Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity, And The Making Of The Oxford English Dictionary” written by Simon¬†Winchester.

As I mentioned in my previous blog, there are two protagonists, and each individual has their own plot line. The first character I was introduced to was Dr. W. C. Minor an American whose family often traveled, Minor himself was later sent to live with his extended family in the United Kingdom. At a young age, he was very well-educated in multiple subjects and happened to be proficient in writing and speaking several languages. When he grew to be a bit older he joined the military as a surgeon, over time he saw many things and performed acts he was not comfortable with; due to the emotionally straining field, Dr.Minor was in, he eventually found himself having night terrors. Thus he was in and out of an asylum until his night terrors caused him to kill an innocent man. Dr. Minor then spent the rest of his life in an insane asylum, until he received a calling to help with the Oxford English Dictionary.

The second protagonist in this novel is none other than Dr. James Murray. He was also proficient in several languages and he taught himself many of the subjects we learn in school; sadly his family could not afford higher education for the young man but he did fine all on his own. As he grew up his intelligence began to be recognized and in no time was James Murray apart of the Philological Society (among those who extremely appreciate literature). After a long period of time, standing by seeing many failed attempts to make a dictionary, the Philological Society decided to begin the best one yet; The Oxford English Dictionary. Murray eventually became head of the project and his life was devoted to what he loved. He sent out many slips of requests for volunteers to help with the dictionary and that is just how our two protagonists came to meet. Sadly Murray did not live to see the completed project but he was none the less important to it all

Grade 12 University level English; a requirement for entry into all university programs?

In order to get into University what are some of the precautions that need to be taken?

– Adequate grades in all required courses.

– Meeting exterior requirements.

– Often enough unique and well written entry essays.

So what makes one think that grade 12 english should not be a requirement when it really should be?

In order to be taken seriously by many universities that often have competative placements in their courses, having an above average mark in english would make the selection of candidates just slightly easier.

The quality of a well written essay would also play in the candidates favour and those who may not have had the chance to be in a grade 12 university level english may struggle to receive acceptance from the school of their choice.

The fundemental skills that a grade 12 university level english teaches you is applicable to many aspects in life. Of course the basics reside in communication such as speaking and expressing one’s self as well as writting. Yet this academic class also teaches skills in note taking for other classes and a sence of independence in yourself since you often need to indicate what information is most important for your notes and futur studying.

Grade 12 english is where you are groomed for the futur and it is understandable why it remains a requirement for so many universities. But who’s to say that these rules may change? What do those who read this blog have to say of the matter?
