Styles of Non-Fiction: Literary Criticism

Literary criticism is a huge part of the academia that surrounds literature. Beyond enjoyment by the masses, a lot of literature is analyzed at a deeper level for its symbolism, meaning, references and more. Commonly defined, literary criticism is the study and interpretation of literature. Literary criticism has existed for nearly as long as literature, though it has developed more and more over time as literature in academia has grown. These days, you can find entire collections of literary criticisms, as well as articles published in literary journals devoted to this analysis. Literary criticisms can be incredibly useful for a few reasons: First, you can learn about the author's style and purpose when writing the piece. Second, you can begin to understand what the piece really means. Third, you can relate it to other pieces that employ similar techniques.

@timeturnerjones Precisely--I understand that it can be frustrating to read the lengthy opinions that are often annoying but really they add perspective that you might not consider otherwise.
I get so tired of reading literary critiques, but really you're right in saying that they can help teach us a lot more about a text than we might get from it after an initial read. @greggr

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sautΓ© means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
Why My Anxiety Makes Me Braver Then You.
Okay, so maybe not braver, sorry. My anxiety is pounding my skull knowing that people will get upset, think that my title is me calling them cowards, that they know I'm not brave. Don't be mad at me its not what I meant, I'm sorry. Let me start over. My anxiety makes me braver then you think; after you call me a worrier, after you deem me too "inside my head." My anxiety doesn't just clog my vision, it fogs yours to the fact that everything I do is a big deal, while flashes of "but what if the worse happens" shoot though your head in my voice. What you don't understand is that it is so very hard to live a life of spontaneity, of breathing in the air and wishing I was the wind, when my mind makes me think that every second someone I love will die because of some arbitrary decision that I chose wrong. It's hard to live a life when your brain only focuses on destruction. So, what I want you to understand is that if I had to describe myself in one word its brave. And not in the valiant knight, stand in front of an armed man to stop is bullet brave. I'm talking about how every day when I come home I check the closets, under the bed, and behind the shower curtain because I always think someone broke in. You never do that because you aren't afraid of that, you aren't anxious. But through the tight grip my anxiety has on my stomach I look. Every day. My anxiety makes me afraid of almost every situation, yet in every single one, I swallow and search out my fear; I push forward. My anxiety makes me braver then you.

Computer programming language
The computer programming language is a set of detailed instruction for a digital computer. And these instruction can be directly executed. And these codes are made to fullfill the desired aim of the programmer and with the help of the language computer devices get direction and for doing the task. We have known such language as machine language. There are so many languages made of computer platform by which we perform several tasks. Although there are many computer languages, relatively few are widely used. Machine and assembly languages are known as low level in which programmers need to manage all the computer’s idiosyncratic feature of the data storage and operation. But apart from this in the high-level language, the programmer doesn't need to worry about such feature and this language provide a notation that can be easily written and read by the programmers. You can know more about this topic by following assignment help. And you can resolve all your queries related to this topic. Types of languages Machine and assembly languages Machine language comprises of the numeric codes for the activities that a specific for a computer that can execute straightforwardly. The codes are series of 1s, or two or a binary digits ("bits"). Which can be used for frequently conversation both from and to hexa decimal. Machine language guidelines ordinarily utilize a few bits to speak to activities, for example, addition. Machine language is slightly hard to read and write since it doesn't look like traditional scientific documentation or human language. It consists of some code and instruction which follows the mathematical computation by achieving the desired goal Assembly language is lit bit hard and one level above the machine language. It uses short mnemonic codes which are specially meant for instruction and allow the programmer to provide a name for the block of the memory which hold the data. Algorithmic languages Algorithmic is intended to express scientific or mathematical calculations. They can express arithmetic operations in documentation like science and permit the utilization of subprograms that package generally utilized activities for reuse. They were the primary high-level language. Well, the computer programming languages are not just limited to these two from of language. these two from of language are just basic information of the computer programming language and there are a lot of programming languages such as phyton, c++, Java and many more. With the help of these languages, we create a set of protocol and instruction by which we perform several tasks.
