It was raining the day Mark Turner died. On a dark, rainy summer night, he foolishly got in the passenger side of a 1998 midnight blue Eclipse. His 19 year old cousin Sam, was the driver, and Sam had a little too much to drink that night. At about three in the morning, they were leaving a party that one of Sam's friends threw.

Mybestfriend, a descriptive essay
When I first met Josh I wasn't overly impressed. I had walked into a Hooters restaurant to dine with friends, and sitting at the table that greeted me was Josh. I didn't notice his rugged good looks. I didn't pause to gaze down upon his broad shoulders, and thick chest. I hardly noticed the caramel color of his eyes, nor his nicely manicured goatee.
What I saw, was a broken tooth. A very tiny, short, yellowing, broken upper lateral tooth. Nice tooth, I remember thinking. Who could have known that tinyVIEW DOCUMENT

One of the most hotly debated topics between pet owners has been the differences between cats and dogs. This is because each of these pets offers its own unique qualities that millions of people love. As someone who has owned both cats and dogs for many years, I appreciate many of the different qualities of these two animals. Both exhibit their own unique qualities that people need to take into account when choosing between them; however, I believe dogs are the better pet because they are more sociable, smarter, and more loyal to their owners.
The first reason dogs are more superior than cats is because the dog is a more sociable animal. A dog’s natural tendency is to be aVIEW DOCUMENT

The Shakespearean drama Hamlet shows much deception and crime. Few friendships in the play survive till the end. But Hamlet and Horatio, best of friends, are not even separated by the hero’s death. This essay will elaborate on this relationship.
A.C. Bradley in Shakespearean Tragedy notes a problem involving Horatio in Shakespeare’s Hamlet:
When Horatio, at the end of the soliloquy, enters and greets Hamlet, it is evident that he and Hamlet have not recently met at Elsinore. Yet Horatio came to Elsinore for the funeral (I.ii. 176). Now even if the funeral took place some three weeks ago, it seems rather strange that HamletVIEW DOCUMENT

way back in time before dogs existed. Now, wolves gradually evolved into dogs. A wolf and a dog
are the same species. They also have the same DNA. Hunting dogs are more related to wolves.
Some people long ago tried to breed dogs by changing their features. For example, a doberman
pinscher got most of its tail cut off. Now they have such small tails! A corgi has a natural tail. A great
dane has surgically cut ears so that they are standing up. A scottish terrier looks like it has a beard but

As a result, I began to appreciate the behavior of dogs.My curiosity has changed my attitude towards dogs. Like humans not all dogs are perfect. Watching the love that one dog gives to another human being has given me a positive outlook on dogs. For example, a blind man was rescued from the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001. His dog guided him out of the tower during a tragic event. The trust and relationship that one dog has given to a human being is incredible. What more can one ask for?

There are many reasons why dogs are a great choice for man’s bestfriend. Dogs provide
many benefits to mankind. For example, they have been trained to provide valuable services to

These qualities can be found in people through different types of cultures, races, and countries. However, they can also be found in animals, and most commonly in the dog.

Background and rationale: Dogs as a man’s bestfriend has been a prevalent view point among modern day humans, and some even accept it as fact. However, the genetics behind what makes dogs so compatible with mankind, and the history of domestication are not well known to most. The time of divergence, and geographic origin of dog domestication has been greatly debated, though many firmly believe they are of Asian origin (research article).

The Johari Window
The Johari Window is a mode that maps our personality; Figure 1 shows the mapping of my personality. When we talk about relationship communication we need to be aware that we give our 1st priority to God and communicate with him more than anyone else in our life because we know that he is the author of our life and he died to save us. After God we need to give our 2nd priority to relationships that are most important to us like spouse, parents, siblings and best friends. This means that I might give my 2nd priority to friend who I know for 5 years or probably myfriend might be my 3rd priority.
