Exploring the Use Literary Techniques in Bossypants’s feelings while also playing to the reader’s emotions. In Tina Fey’s Bossypants, several techniques applied help successfully create a notable work of literature. Her use of literary devices proves to be effective as shown through the irony, humour and flashbacks. Irony is often used by authors to add an element of humour to a simple narrative; Tina Fey’s use of verbal irony helps effectively convey her story. An example of this is when she says: “…I took a personal inventory of all my healthy body parts for which I am grateful: wide German hips that look like somebody wrapped Pillsbury dough around a case of soda” (Fey 25). This is verbal irony as Tina Fey expresses an opinion that is opposite of what she actually means; wide hips are not considered healthy. Her use of irony adds interest to the plot while also making the text more human to readers. By proving that she is not perfect, her story becomes more relatable. A successful story is one that is easy to connect to. Situational irony also contributes to effectively conveying her story. This is evident when Tina and her husband go on a cruise to avoid planes but end up having to fly home anyways due to several problems aboard the ship. Situational irony adds a comedic feel to the story, which breaks down barriers between the reader and the author. The readers feel they can better relate to the story, and more thoroughly understand the author’s message. Tina Fey’s use of both verbal and situational irony are......

...PM on Thursday, September 14th, a sentinel event occurred that involved a potential child abduction. Tina, a 3 year old child, was scheduled for a routine, same-day surgery at Nightingale Community Hospital to have ear tubes put in both ears. Tina was brought to the hospital by her mother, who had recently been divorced from Tina’s biological father; Tina’s mother has full custody of the children, including Tina. After Tina was registered and taken to the pre-op area of the hospital, the pre-op nurse informed Tina’s mother that the actual surgery would take approximately 45 minutes, and then Tina would need to stay in recovery for at least an additional hour. Tina’s mother informed the pre-op nurse that once Tina had gone to the operating room, she would be leaving the facility to run an older sibling on an errand, but she would be back to pick up Tina after she was released from recovery. The mother gave her cell phone number to the pre-op nurse, who wrote the phone number down on a note-pad the nurse carries in her pocket. Tina’s mother asked for the nurse to call her on her cell phone if Tina’s procedure was completed sooner than expected. When Tina was taken into surgery, the mother left the facility to run her errand. After the surgery was completed, Tina was taken to post-op to recover. The recovery nurse paged Tina’s mother, but did not receive a response. Tina was transferred to the Ambulatory Care nurse to prepare for discharge. The discharge nurse also......

Tina Bruce Play Theory

...Tina Bruce was born on Tina Bruce is known as a social learning theorist whose work has been greatly influenced by Frederich Froebel. Bruce originally trained and worked as a teacher at the Froebel institute then went on to become Head of the Froebel nursery school. She is a leading figure in early childhood education and an expert in children’s learning. Bruce links the three aspects of the curriculum to the ten principles of early childhood education - The child The context - the people and places The content - what the child knows and wants and needs to know Children are whole people who have feelings, ideas and relationships with others, and who need to be physically, mentally, morally and spiritually healthy. Young children learn in an integrated way and not in neat tidy compartments. Children learn best when they are given appropriate responsibility, allowed to make errors, decisions and choices, and respected as autonomous learners. Self-discipline is emphasised. Indeed, this is the only kind of discipline worth having. Reward systems are very short-term and do not work in the long-term. Children need their efforts to be valued. There are times when children are especially able to learn particular things. What children can do rather than what they cannot do, is the starting point of a child’s education. Imagination, creativity and all kinds of symbolic behaviour [reading, writing, drawing, dancing, music, mathematical numbers, algebra, role play......

...are talking to, family, friends and co-works/ professional world. I feel that the way someone speaks determines the way people think about them. It is important because no one wants their co-workers to think they are not smart or friends to think they are arrogant. I took the time to go and observed two people in their daily lives. I followed Mark and Tina around for six hours each- two at work, two with their family, and two with their friends. Mark is 50 years old and has 3 children; he has been working in the same factory as Tina for the last 30 years. Tina has been working in this plant for the last 7 years and is 30 years old. She also has 2 children. I chose to follow Mark and Tina because they work at the same factory, went to the same high school, and grew up in the same area. I did this because I felt like this would make my observations close to each other, therefore if there are any changes in the way they talk between family, friends, and co-workers it would reduce the chances that it could be from outside influences. The first time I went to observe I went to a factory in Findlay, Ohio to see both Tina and Mark at the same time. I sat and observed them without asking them any questions. I did not want to ask them any questions because I did not want to influence the way that they would interact with people at work. All they knew was that I was observing them for an English research paper. To look at the personalities and the way people talk and......

Tina Exercise

...Joe Barnes. Tina Assignment Tina was dealing with a dilemmatic problem as she didn’t know whether she should work for money from her unethical work or actually take some ethical actions instead. In my point of view, it would be important if she could ask herself a question: “which option will produce the most good, and do the least harm?” In this case, if Tina accepted doing the job, customers would be hurt the most. Since Tina wanted to act on her value instead of being a hypocrite, it would be reasonable for her to quit the job and continuingly look for other job opportunities. However, Tina’s situation was more complicated because she was in a hard time financing her living expenses like rents, school supplies, or even foods. Living independently is not easy, especially for Tina since she did not even have a job. Thus, Tina had better keep doing her job for another short amount of time. While working as an intern there, she should actively continue looking for other internships and job opportunities. She also might want to do job researches at home to avoid her coworkers or her boss to see because that could cause trouble for herself. Obviously, Tina’s job doesn’t make her a bad person, it is just a matter of time. She knew what she was doing, but she just needed more time to financially balance her life. If she did not balance well with her life, her study and her living expenses, she could hurt herself, and her situation could get even worse. In short, Tina should......

...This can be caused by an individual's psychological and environmental factors. Tina's study case is an example of that. Tina is a 45 year old single mother of three adult children. She is divorced, but is in a relationship with a man that is the same age as she is. She is currently having problems with her adult son that has had run ins with the law and is currently participating in a rehab program. Her son resides in her home but is not motivated to look for work or contribute in any way. Tina spends most of her time working out at the gym. Tina cannot see the harm she is causing to herself and those around her. As mentioned before, Tina is divorced. Her husband left her for much younger and attractive females. She has become self conscience about her appearance that she is obsessed with exercising. What Tina does not realize, is that she is spending all of her time working out at the gym so she is not dividing her attention evenly to the people around her that need her. Tina's relationship with her children is almost nonexistent, especially with her son Jackson. Jackson needs her support now more than anyone because he is going through such a tough transition to become sober. Jackson can relapse and return to his bad habits since he has no one by his side to encourage him to stay on the right path in becoming a productive citizen. Tina also does not have time for her relationship with Michael. Michael would like to take the next step in their relationship......

Essays Tina

...Anna Chamandy BMGT321 Professor Cheng February 24 2016 Wilkerson Case Currently, Wilkerson operates under a simple job-costing accounting system. It accounts for distinct cost objects. For example, it produces unique and different products for its customers such as valves, pumps and flow controllers. Direct material and labor are directly charged to the product (based on production units) and indirect overhead costs are allocated using one cost pool, direct labor production run time at 300%. The problem with this simple cost accounting system is that the products they make consume a different amount of indirect resources. For example, the flow controllers require more components and more labor and there is more variety in the types of flow controllers used in the industry. So we would expect unit costs for this product to be the highest among valves, pumps and flow controllers but in Exhibit 2 the standard unit cost is $62 compared to $70 for the pump. The pumps are a commodity product and produced in high volume. Pumps are subject to price competition, which is why Wilkerson has no choice, but to lower its prices for pumps leading to decreased margins of 3%. In order to change reported income, Wilkerson should use more a more accurate costing system, also known as Activity Based Costing (ABC). Under an ABC costing system, Wilkerson will have several indirect cost pools that will be traced to each product rather than one. ABC will improve the accuracy of pricing......
