I could not help thinking ofthe wild ritual of this work, and of its probable influence upon the hypochondriac, when, one evening, having informed me abruptly that the lady Madeline was no more, he stated his intention of preserving her corpse for a fortnight, (previously to its final interment,) in one ofthe numerous vaults within the main walls ofthe building. The worldly reason, however, assigned for this singular proceeding, was one which I did not feel at liberty to dispute. The brother had been led to his resolution (so he told me) by consideration ofthe unusual character ofthe malady ofthe deceased, of certain obtrusive and eager inquiries on the part of her medical men, and ofthe remote and exposed situation ofthe burial-ground ofthe family. I will not deny that when I called to mind the sinister countenance ofthe person whom I met upon the stair case, on the day of my arrival at thehouse, I had no desire to oppose what I regarded as at best but a harmless, and by no means an unnatural, precaution. At the request ofUsher, I personally aided him in the arrangements for the temporary entombment. The body having been encoffined, we two alone bore it to its rest. The vault in which we placed it (and which had been so long unopened that our torches, half smothered in its oppressive atmosphere, gave us little opportunity for investigation) was small, damp, and entirely without means of admission for light; lying, at great depth, immediately beneath that portion ofthe building in which was my own sleeping apartment. It had been used, apparently, in remote feudal times, for the worst purposes of a donjon-keep, and, in later days, as a place of deposit for powder, or some other highly combustible substance, as a portion of its floor, and the whole interior of a long archway through which we reached it, were carefully sheathed with copper. The door, of massive iron, had been, also, similarly protected. Its immense weight caused an unusually sharp grating sound, as it moved upon its hinges.
The research belongs to the descriptive qualitative research. The reserch uses Stylistic approach and the concept of melancholy by Markus Treichler (2008). The data are collected through the technique of close reading in order to see each word, phrase, and sentence from the short stories. The data are taken from the sentences that utilized figurative language and express melancholy.
Edgar Allan Poe was a famous American poet, short story writer, journalist, and literary critic who lived in 1809-1849. As the saddest and the strangest figure in American literary history, he had unique style in expressing his works. Death played a major part in many of his writings. He blended the sorrow, despair, anger and suffer from loss, as in his short stories TheFallofTheHouseofUsher, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Black Cat. The death in the three short stories brings the reader to a mystery. This is interesting to be analyzed. In the three short stories there are some questions, full of secrets, and have surprise endings. Mystery gives reader uncertainty about the conclusion ofthe story. In some stories the reader may guess the conclusion before they even finish reading them, but when author adds mystery into their masterpieces, the stories become far more interesting and keeps the reader wondering whether the conclusion ofthe story would end like they thought and therefore keeps the reader wanting to read more.
1. I stopped my horse beside the building, on the edge of a dark and quiet lake. There, I could see reflected in the water a clear picture ofthe dead trees, and ofthehouse and its empty eye-like windows. I was now going to spend several weeks in this houseof sadness — this houseof gloom. Its owner was named Roderick Usher. We had been friends when we were boys; but many years had passed since our last meeting. A letter from him had reached me, a wild letter which demanded that I reply by coming to see him. He wrote of an illness ofthe body — of a sickness ofthe mind — and of a desire to see me — his best and indeed his only friend. It was the manner in which all this was said — it was the heart in it — which did not allow me to say no.
Soon afterward the miners’ terraces began, superior to the farm cottages but still ungainly and monotonous to an eye such as Ethel’s, spoiled by the perfect proportions of Tŷ Gwyn’s windows and doorways and roofs. The people out here had cheap clothes that quickly became shapeless and worn, and were colored with dyes that faded, so that all the men were in grayish suits and all the women brownish dresses. Ethel’s maid’s outfit was envied for its warm wool skirt and crisp cotton blouse, for all that some ofthe girls liked to say they would never lower themselves to be servants. But the biggest difference was in the people themselves. Out here they had blemished skin, dirty hair, and black fingernails. The men coughed, the women sniffed, and the children all had runny noses. The poor shambled and limped along roads where the rich strode confidently.
The target audiences are internal (the employee or staff in a company), local (the local communities such as society, local media and local government), influence groups (the activities of group that influences into the planning of Public Relations), governments (the local and nation government that responsibility into the company on their region), the media (the local media), financial (bank or institution that relates into planning in economy ofthe company), trade, customers (the receiver of goods or services), and general public (everyone that is related to the company).
Willie has a series of incidents in the mall in between his time spent with the Kid and Sue. During one of his lunch breaks, he yells at a mother and son after Marcus insults him. Marcus is continually disgusted by how unreliable Willie has become. Gin, meanwhile, discovers the history of Marcus and Willie and he demands half ofthe money and merchandise they plan to steal, creating further friction between Willie and Marcus. Willie goes to the mall drunk the next day and destroys a reindeer display in a drunken rage, shocking the customers. Marcus and Gin try to cover it up, but get into an argument. The next day, Willie tries to commit suicide, giving the Kid a letter to give to the police when they would come to collect his corpse, explaining the mall robbery. He is motivated to live when he sees how the bullies have blackened the Kid's eye. He beats up the lead bully (Max Van Ville) as his friends run away and then gives the Kid a very unsuccessful boxing lesson.
coordinates the interests of dominant class. We are presented with a straightfor- ward binary opposition between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat. However, Marx also advanced a second view, notably in two other works, the Class Struggles in France, written in 1850, and The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte, written in 1852. In these works, he outlines a plurality of classes and details how the state is far more than just a simple coordinator ofthe interests ofthe dominant class. Marx also argued, in this second view, that the state itself has some auton- omy. This second view ofthe state has become the dominant view in contem- porary Marxist scholarship and Carnoy has written that: ‘The State is not regarded simply as an instrument ofthe ruling class. ... Who rules the State is an impor- tant issue, but few, if any, current writers claim that the ruling class controls the State directly.’ 17 However, we must not lose sight ofthe fact that Marx did not
According to the myth, Sibayak Barus Jahe (SBJ) came originally from Barus, a Malay kingdom on the west coast of Sumatra. The inclusion of Urung Sinembah into the domain of Deli is relevant for the position of Ajinembah in a trade network involving the Barus and Deli Malay kingdoms. It points at the camphor-benzoic routes that existed between the eight and fourteenth centuries, connecting the interior Batak domains to the ports of Barus on the west coast and Kota Cina in Deli on the east coast, from where the goods were exported to China (Andaya 1995: 387). From the fifteenth century onwards the port of Deli rose in importance due to the production of black pepper that was cultivated at Upstream Deli by Karo farmers. The Karo consider Upstream Deli as Downstream Karo. The myth indicates how Si Pitu Kuta Urung became included within this larger network.
This paper explores how a computer-generated reconstruction of a church can be adapted to create a panoramic film that is presented in a panoramic viewer and also on a wrap-around projection system. It focuses on the fundamental principles of creating 360º films, not only in 3D modelling software, but also presents how to record 360º video using panoramic cameras inside the heritage sit e. These issues are explored in a case study of Charles Church in Plymouth, UK that was bombed in 1941 and has never been rebuilt. The generation of a 3D model ofthe bombed church started from the creation of five spherical panoramas and through the use of Autodesk ImageModeler software. The processed files were imported and merged together in Autodesk 3ds Max where a visualisation ofthe ruin was produced. A number of historical images were found and this collection enabled the process of a virtual reconstruction ofthe site. The aspect of merging two still or two video panoramas (one from 3D modelling software, the other one recorded on the site) from the same locations or with the same trajectories is also discussed. The prototype of 360º non-linear film tells a narrative of a wartime wedding that occurred in this church. Thefilm was prese nted on two 360º screens w here members ofthe audience could make decisions on whether to continue the ceremony or whether to run away when the bombing ofthe church starts. 3D modelling software made this possible to render a number of different alternati ves (360º images and 360º video). Immersive environments empower the visitor to imagine the building before it was destroyed.

The table above displays the impacts ofthe strategies to the quality ofthe translation especially the accuracy and the acceptability. The transference strategy produces high accuracy level (3 of 4 data are considered to be accurate translation) and high acceptability level (2 of 4 data are considered to be acceptable). The transference strategy gives high accuracy and acceptability result because this strategy maintaining the word ofthe SL to the TL, in order to keep the local color atmosphere ofthe SL to the TL and give respect for the SL country’s culture. The substitution strategy produces low accuracy level (2 of 2 data are considered to be inaccurate translation), but it produces high level of acceptability (2 of 2 data are considered to be acceptable) because this strategy substitutes the SL into the TL in different meaning but more appropriate in the TL culture. The deletion strategy shows low level of accuracy (66 of 71 data are considered to be inaccurate translation), while for acceptability, it shows high result (55 of 71 data are considered to be acceptable). This strategy shows low level of accuracy because it deletes the second-person address in the SL. The deletion diminishes the strategy built by the speaker but it becomes more appropriate in the TL culture. The similar meaning strategy produces the highest level of accuracy (249 from 277 data are considered to be accurate translation) and high level of acceptability (236 from 277 data are considered to be acceptable)

Pandangan Knight ini menjadi pokok perdebatan yang intensif di kalangan tradisionalis dan hierarkis di satu sisi dan kaum egalitarian atau “egalitarian-injili” di sisi lain. Bagi Giles, perdebatan hingga waktu Knight menulis buku itu masih cukup sehat, dengan berpusat pada apa yang Alkitab ajarkan mengenai hubungan antara laki-laki dan perempuan. Trinitas tidak menjadi landasan pemikiran yang utama pada masa itu, sampai penandatanganan Danvers Statement (1987) bahkan penerbitan bunga rampai Recovering Biblical Manhood of Womanhood yang disunting oleh John Piper dan Wayne Grudem (1991), buku yang pertama kali memperkenalkan istilah “komplementarian.” 5
Then this morning there was a car parked across our driveway. I figured it must have been someone from the party and so went down to knock on their door. I knocked and knocked but no one came. I figured they were hung-over and sleeping so I kept on banging really loudly – door, window, everything within reach. Finally this guy crawled out of bed and opened the window. I explained the problem but it turned out it wasn’t his party. Thehouse was divided into flats and it was the people out ofthe back.
Macbeth is excessively ambitious and too easily tempted to get the things he wishes by any means he thinks possible whether fair or foul, so that when he hears the witches' prophecies, evil intentions come into his mind. Thus the witches are meant to tempt Macbeth, but they are never intended to have a compulsive influence. They prophesy that Macbeth will be Thane of Glamis, Thane of Cawdor, and king of Scotland, but they never say how Macbeth is supposed to reach his kingship, nor do they say that the only possible way for Macbeth to get the throne is through the assassination of Duncan. When Macbeth kills Duncan, the witches cannot be held responsible for the crime. Macbeth's own evil ambition is much stronger than the witches ‟ influence. Now compare Macbeth‟s reaction with that of Banquo when they first hear the witches' prophecies. When Macbeth finds out that he has been appointed Thane of Glamis and Thane of Cawdor, he begins to think ofthe possibility of murdering Duncan. This can be deduced from an aside after Rosse and Angus have given the message from the king in which Macbeth speaks his thoughts aloud.
Banquo suggests that Macbeth should not believe everything the witches have said right to the end because if Macbeth does so, he might be consumed by his own ambition. He also reminds him that something given to us frequently makes us unaware of other things which follow. Thus Banquo warns Macbeth that the witches' words which promise him the crown must not be trusted fully, notwithstanding the fact that parts of them have proved to be true, i.e. he has received the titles Thane of Glamis and Thane of Cawdor in accordance with the prophecies. Therefore, it is unreasonable to believe that the witches are responsible for the murder of Duncan. The crime is prompted by Macbeth's own wickedness and uncontrollable ambition. As a matter of fact, Shakespeare already gives a clue that Macbeth is virtually wicked; his wickedness is revealed through the witches’ remark at the beginning ofthe play:‘by the pricking of my thumbs / Something wicked this way comes’ (Act I Scene i).
Alice Walker was born and raised in Georgia. When Walker was eight years old, her brother accidentally shot her with a gun, made her blind in one eye. This injury played a great role on building her self-conscious, and she started writing poetry. In Georgia where people would call a girl ― womanish ‖ , Alice Walker captures the spirit ofthe ― womanist ‖— the term she created herself, where she reflects it through her fictional characters. She defines her own black feminism and use the color purple to symbolize her feminism, which is depicted on her novel The Color Purple. In the 1965, after graduating, she went to Mississippi and joined the Civil Rights Movement. Her participation in the Civil Rights Movement more or less influenced her political and social views which she expresses it through her literary works. This does not only influence her thoughts on racial issues, but also develop her interest of her root in Africa, which is well reflected through Nettie ‘ s description in The Color Purple. Alice Walker ‘ s first novel was published in 1970 and her second one in 1976. Both books dealt with the Civil Rights Movement. The Color Purple which is published in 1982 is her most successful work and made her an important American writer.
