Q&A: I am going to new york for nine days. Does anyone have a good daily itinerary that I can follow?More is better?

Question by New Yorkie: I am going to new york for nine days. Does anyone have a good daily itinerary that I can follow?More is better?
I am going to new york for nine days. First time. I want to do as much as possible. I was wondering if anybody has a good daily itinerary that I could follow? I want to do things close together in one day and so forth. Some of the major things I want to hit are Ground Zero, China Town, Times Square, Broadway, Central Park and it’s museums, greenwich village, sighttseeing cruises, empire state building, wax museum, manhatten mall, museum of modern art, nbc studio tour, skyride, rockefeller center, statue of liberty and ellis island, century 21, frozzen hot chocolate at serendipity, brooklyn bridge, and any other ideas that you think would be awesome. I have Phantom of the opera tickets already and I have a new york pass. We are staying right in Times Square if that helps any, and I would prefer to take the subway or other cheap ways of travel.

Just 3 things
If you can then change your hotel reservation from TS to the Upper West Side
Doing that will save you money and place you in a much better and non-touristy neighborhood
I mean you’re gonna be in town for 9 days you’ll feel better coming home to a neighborhood where real NY’ers actually live
NYC is a 24/7 city >use that to your advantage
Do the things that have got to be done before 5:00PM before 5:00PM
Go back to your hotel , take a nap for a couple of hours ,freshen up and then go out and play with the City at night
Lastly NYC is the greatest food city on the planet
On the things that NYers worship list Food is always on the top 3 .Take advantage of that by not using any chain restaurants x/c Dunkin Donuts and eating at local ethnic restaurants and getting authentic gourmet ethnic groceries at any one of the hundreds of such places scattered throughout the City and it’s boroughs.

Anyone want to play a BNG?

Question by Addison L: Anyone want to play a BNG?
All right!

1. You’re fresh out of college at 22, have a job offer and meet “the one.” What’s his name?

2. At 24, you’re pregnant with a little baby boy! Your boyfriend proposes and you happily consider your baby name… he wants to name him after his grandfather: Hubert. You hate this name and must come up with a way to fix it! (Tough one!)

3. You’re little baby boy is adorable and you’re wedding went perfectly! You get back from your honeymoon and PRESTO! A month later you find out you’re having twins! Two beautiful little girls: you decide to name their first names color names, and their middle names must start with R.

4. Your beautiful family is growing, and your husband has a great job, but you miss the little babies. You adopt a little girl from India and a little boy from China! You want to keep their heritage in their names… how do you do it?

5. Your husband gets a job offer in _______ (pick a place!), so your whole family picks up and moves. Your little boy is 7, your little twins are 5, and you’re adopted kids are 2. But guess what? You’re pregnant again! The baby comes out a month early and he’s so frail and tiny but he makes it. His first and middle names must mean fighter or warrior, or something along those lines.

6. Your littlest one is now 3, and you want another kid. You try, and it’s easy! You’re pregnant with triplets! Two girls and one boy: their first names must be related to either winter or your winter holiday (Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.). And their middle names must all start with the same letter.

7. Whew! Those triplets are tough! But (accidentally this time!) you get pregnant. Yet again! This time, it’s only one! She is born on a cruise in _______ (you pick a place, but it has to be tropical!) and decide to name her a name that represents the place you lived in.

Your kids are beautiful and healthy…

Now let’s see what you named ’em!!

Best answer:

Answer by astudyingstudent
I have just a few comments. It costs about $ 25 per person to take the boat to Alcatraz, and I doubt it’s worth it unless you’re really into Alcatraz. Winchester mystery house is in San Jose, which is about an hour drive from SF. Similarly, Stanford and Yosemite are not actually in SF and would probably require a car to get there. Actually, going to Napa and Big Sur would require a car too.

Since you’re only going to be in SF for a weekend, it would be best spent actually in the city. I would suggest Fisherman’s Wharf/Pier 39, Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Lombard Street, and Union Square. They are all roughly in the same area of SF and accessible by the Muni bus system. Experiencing all these things is free for the most part. You will have a blast!

Edit: To the person who attempted to debunk my information, nowhere is Golden Gate Park or UC Berkeley in my list of faraway places. Also, when I referred to the places to go, “roughly” indicates that they aren’t exactly next door to each other, but they are in about the same part of SF, namely, the northern part.

Can anyone give some insight into the poem Sow by Sylvia Plath? Maybe themes present, or analysis of the poem?

Question by Lisa: Can anyone give some insight into the poem Sow by Sylvia Plath? Maybe themes present, or analysis of the poem?
I’ve read it through a few times and can identify the literary terms, etc, but cannot get anywhere in interpreting the meaning or the themes in the poem. Any help would be great. Thanks!.

The poem is below:

Sow

God knows how our neighbor managed to breed
His great sow:
Whatever his shrewd secret, he kept it hid

In the same way
He kept the sow–impounded from public stare,
Prize ribbon and pig show.

But one dusk our questions commended us to a tour
Through his lantern-lit
Maze of barns to the lintel of the sunk sty door

To gape at it:
This was no rose-and-larkspurred china suckling
With a penny slot

For thrift children, nor dolt pig ripe for heckling,
About to be
Glorified for prime flesh and golden crackling

In a parsley halo;
Nor even one of the common barnyard sows,
Mire-smirched, blowzy,

Maunching thistle and knotweed on her snout-
cruise–
Bloat tun of milk
On the move, hedged by a litter of feat-foot ninnies

Shrilling her hulk
To halt for a swig at the pink teats. No. This vast
Brobdingnag bulk

Of a sow lounged belly-bedded on that black
compost,
Fat-rutted eyes
Dream-filmed. What a vision of ancient hoghood
must

Thus wholly engross
The great grandam!–our marvel blazoned a knight,
Helmed, in cuirass,

Unhorsed and shredded in the grove of combat
By a grisly-bristled
Boar, fabulous enough to straddle that sow’s heat.

But our farmer whistled,
Then, with a jocular fist thwacked the barrel nape,
And the green-copse-castled

Pig hove, letting legend like dried mud drop,
Slowly, grunt
On grunt, up in the flickering light to shape

A monument
Prodigious in gluttonies as that hog whose want
Made lean Lent

Of kitchen slops and, stomaching no constraint,
Proceeded to swill
The seven troughed seas and every earthquaking
continent.

Anyone want to edit my english paper?

Question by Steve B: Anyone want to edit my english paper?
I did a research paper on the Nanking Massacre. If you could correct any spelling or grammatical mistakes. Thanks!

Nanking Massacre
My research paper is about the Nanking Massacre. Sometimes refered to the Rape of Nanking. It occurred in the year of 1937. The duration of this massacre is still undetermined but the violence consisted of six weeks. There were over 300,000 people killed and over 20,000 women raped. It is a true devastation to the Chinese people
In this massacre the aggressor was the Imperial Japanese Army or just Japan and the Victim was the Chinese people of Nanking. The reason for this massacre was word domination. Japan wanted to control the world, Quite similar to Germany in WWII. All Japanese children raised in the 1900s were raised to hate China and the people that live there. It was a Japs duty to obey their emperor who was declared the son of heaven. Every citizen was raised to fight! Their first step of world domination was to take over China so that’s how the Naking Massacre got started.
People were not just simply killed in this Massacre, they were extremely tortured in sick, twisted ways! The Chinese were shot, gassed, raped, looted, burned, and the city was vandalized. Gasoline was poured on large groups of Chinese soldiers and set of fire. As well as people being set on fire so were buildings. Poison gas was used on anyone who appeared to be a Chinese soldier. Peopled were looted of everything! The loot included jewelry, coins, domesticated animals, food, clothes, antiques, and even inexpensive items such as cigarettes, eggs, fountain pens, and buttons.
The most disturbing things I’ve learned from this is the way they went about raping the women of Nanking. They raped girls of ages 10 and younger, women 70 and older. They even made sons rape their daughters and sons rape their mothers. If anyone resisted or refused they were killed immediately.
One particular even in this massacre were a lot of people were killed was the “Tragedy at Yangtze River”. On December 13, 1937 50,000 people died trying to escaped from the Japanese by crossing the Yangtze River.
You can imagine the survivors lives were deeply traumatized as any survivor would be after such a horrific experience. Seeing your own people being killed and tortured in sickening ways would take its toll on you. Some survivors managed to write books and other pieces of what they saw and experienced such as Li Xiuying, Mu Xifu, Xia Shuqin, and many others.
After this genocide the Japanese tried to deny it ever happen, but with such terrifying evidence that would not hold up. Japanese class A war criminals were tried in court for war crimes. Twenty five of them were found guilty, seven sentenced to the death penalty, sixteen to life in prison, and two to lesser terms.

The massacre’s aggressor was was the Imperial Japanese army, or just Japan, and the victims were the people of Naking. The reason for the massacre was for world domination.

People were not just simply killed-They were tortured in sick, twisted ways! The Chinese were shot, gassed, raped, looted, burned, and their city was also vandalized. Gasoline was poured on large groups of solders, and they were then set on fire. Buildings were also set on fire. Poison gas was used when someone was suspected of being Chinese. People were also looted! Things that were looted included jewelry, coins, domestic animals, food, clothes, antiques, and even inexpensive items such as cigarettes, eggs, fountain pens, and buttons.

The most disturbing thing I’ve learned from this is the way they went about raping the women. They raped girls from ages younger than 10, to ages older than 70. They even made sons rape their daughters and mothers. If anyone resisted or refused, they were instantly killed.
