Section 8 Housing Pros and Cons
Section 8 is government assistance to help low-income families obtain safe, decent, and affordable housing. A perspective section 8 tenant must apply to a local Public Housing Agency. When an eligible tenant comes to the top of the Public Housing Agency’s housing choice voucher waiting list, the Public Housing Agency issues a housing choice voucher to the tenant. Tenants who receive Section 8 vouchers are responsible for finding their own rental housing. The vouchers they receive from their housing agency are to help pay the rent.
This is good for both the renter and the landlord; the amount of money section 8 pays for rent varies based on the voucher holder's qualifications. Once a voucher holder locates a property and is approved by the property manager, there is a string of events that take place. The voucher holder fills out a form that the property manager signs. The voucher holder submits this form to his/her case worker at the Public Housing Agency. The case worker executes a contract with the property manager. This contract authorizes the Public Housing Agency to make subsidy payments on behalf of the tenant. If the tenant...
...Chapter 7: Why do writers allude to the Bible?
I believe that author writers choose to allude to the Bible for easy reference that anyone could recognize. Many people use examples of character of stories to define a point like “he overcame like David over Goliath” or “That was as miraculous as Jesus walking on water” so others pickup on that recognize when used in books. By using that they found a way to sum up an idea of being miraculous, overcoming, or time of greatness by using famous sequences of the Bible. While others use symbol of the Bible to show the purpose for what they are symbolizing, an example in our book Foster tells of another book using the Four Horsemen. The Four Horsemen are the sign, according to the Bible, of Judgment Day but the book that is used as the example they are a group of men after the protagonist to kill her. The author still used a reference from Bible people may or may not have picked up on making it easy to understand their point.
Chapter 2: Choose a meal scene from any literature work or film and apply the ideas of Chapter 2.
Whenever I see meal scenes in movies a lot of drama ensues but then again my mother watches a lot romantic dramas though definitely with this genre tons of drama ensues after meals because a communion of some sort. The meal scene that I remember clearly is from a Tyler Perry movie in which when it ended someone went to the hospital. Let me first set the stage, The movie was set currently at winter retreat...
...Proposition 8 was a measure put on California’s election ballot on November 4, 2008 that gave voters the opportunity to either amend the California State Constitution or prevent a change from happening. To vote “Yes” on Prop 8, one would be in favor of adding the phrase “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California” otherwise known as the “California Marriage Protection Act”. To vote “No” on Prop 8, one would be against the initiative. Ultimately, 52.3% of California’s voters voted “Yes” on the initiative, resulting in an amendment to the California State Constitution. The history of controversial Proposition 8 includes many influential people, various groups of Californian citizens, the involvement of the California Supreme Court, and now the proposition has reached the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. This paper will discuss the various aspects and factors involved with the outcome that Proposition 8 ultimately reached.
One of the individuals that directly involved with the controversy of same-sex marriage was former Mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom. On February 12, 2004, Mayor Newsom defied the “California’s Defense of Marriage Act” of 2000 (AKA Proposition 22), by ordering the county clerk to revise the marriage forms and issue same-sex marriage licenses (Taylor 865-890). The next day two conservative groups, the Proposition 22 Legal Defense and...
During the high awareness of proposition 8 SignOnSanDiego.com published two opposing articles regarding the proposition. The first article was titled “Consequences of gay marriage already here” by Charles LiMandri. In this Article LiMandri says “Yes on 8,” he believes in the negative effects of passing the proposition and ultimately disagrees with gay marriage. The second article, “It’s about treating every couple the same” author Harry Mathis feels quit the opposite. Mathis says yes “No on 8,” and speaks to the reader on a very personal level.
Charles LiMandri describes in his article how the effects of legalized gay marriage are affecting the impression of traditional marriage and also affecting schools. LiMandri talks about how legalizing gay marriage also elevates gay couples to the highest position under the law know as a “protected class.” By doing this, anytime an individual, church, teacher or business collide with the desires of a same-sex couple, actions can be instantly defined as discrimination. LiMandi also touches base with the fact that if this proposition is passed, gay couples will not just stop there but continue on in effecting our schools and what our children are taught.
LiMandri obviously does not believe in the legalization of gay marriage, his premises support this. Firstly, he talks about a teacher took her class to see her marry her lesbian partner, and how the pictures...

← Gemini 6A Gemini 9A →
Gemini 8 (officially Gemini VIII) was the sixth manned spaceflight in NASA's Gemini program. The mission conducted the first docking of two spacecraft in orbit, but suffered the first critical in-space system failure of a U.S. spacecraft which threatened the lives of the astronauts and required immediate abort of the mission. The crew was returned to Earth safely. The only other time this happened was on the flight of Apollo 13.
It was the twelfth manned American flight and the twenty-second manned spaceflight of all time (including X-15 flights over 100 kilometers (54 nautical miles)). Command pilot Neil Armstrong's flight marked the second time a U.S. civilian flew into space (Joseph Albert Walker became the first US civilian on X-15 Flight 90). Armstrong had resigned his commission in the United States Naval Reserve in 1960. The Soviet Union had launched the first civilian, Valentina Tereshkova (also the first woman) aboard Vostok 6 on June 16, 1963.

...In the November 2008 United States election cycle, the state of California had Proposition 8 on the ballot. This was in response to the state legalizing gay marriage through the judicial system. After the legalization of the practice, opponents of gay marriage were able to put Proposition 8 on the ballot in an attempt to overturn the court ruling. Ultimately they were successful, but not without millions of dollars in campaign advertising. This paper will examine the main advertisement named, 'Gathering Storm'. This ad was shown throughout the state, and in retrospect seems to have turned the tide of the Proposition 8 battle, helping enormously to swing voters in favor of banning marriage between two members of the same sex.
The advertisement itself was, like many political ads, targeting a wide demographic of 'swing voters', voters who historically can fall on either side of an issue. It was played at prime time on regular rotation, but appeared to target a cross section of the population consisting of young to middle age professionals. The producers of the ad also seemed to be acutely aware of the wide range of diversity within California by making sure that all racial demographics had a speaking role in the ad. It is possible that this is an intentional choice by the creators of the ad as well, seeing as how the opponents of Proposition 8 often countered arguments by portraying the supporters as bigots who were...

Is Boeing 747-8 a better plane then Airbus A380
Wu Su Hong
In this essay , my topic will be Is airbus A380 a better plane than Boeing 747-8. In this time the worldwide fleet is split roughly 50/50 between Boeing models and Airbus models. As you all know , Boeing is a U.S. company and Airbus is a European company. Undeniably they are both different in their operating procedures and system architectures. If we are going into details about how different they are , then there will be a lot of boring pages to answer , so personally I am not going to wander there. Trust me , the typical readers won’t want me to go there too. Currently there’s 2 camps of people out there , with one loyally attached to Boeing and one more attached to Airbus. It is normal for people to support their own likings , it’s just as out of the dozen teams out there in the English Premier League , my favourite will always be Manchester united. It is just a case of whatever he or she is used to i believe. Recently I often asked people if their choice over aircraft manufacturers is based on “better” or “safer” , the answere I get ,once again a whole chapter of boring details , the short and acceptable answere will be a “no”. Both planes have their own “pro’s” and “con’s”.
Here, we are going to briefly talk about the history of the world’s biggest planes.
The 747 was built for long distance...
