I am so glad to learn that the prospective Stanford student is encouraged - welcomed - to lean into the poetry,creativity, eccentricity and unreconciled internal narrative that is the basic current of their young, electric brains when writing the personal essay. Perhaps this article should go up at the admissions website for all to see...
By the 1960s, New Orleans was one of Honduras' largest trading partners and President John F. Kennedy posed a socioeconomic initiative that resulted in the Garifuna coming to New Orleans in large numbers. Doña Zoila Martinez, in her 70s in 2009, and perhaps the most respected and renowned Garifuna elder, tradition bearer, and community leader recalls the conditions that led to her arrival, ". . . ." " . . . during the time of President Kennedy they gave all this help to people under something called the Alliance for Progress. They were seeking people who would come here to work. You understand? That is how I was able to come here to the United States."
I stand on the riverbank surveying this rippled range like some riparian cowboy—instead of chaps, I wear vinyl, thigh-high waders and a lasso of measuring tape and twine is slung over my arm.
People around the United States are trying to get professional sport teams to change their names and mascots because they feel it depicts their certain race in bad way.
Do not depend on judgmental language (words such as "beautiful," "interesting," "great," "wonderful"). In showing us something works, you imply your enthusiasm; in showing us how something doesn't work or it might have worked better, you've gone far enough. Biographical information (about the artist whose work is being discussed) can be interesting; however, for most brief papers designed to demonstrate a critical understanding of literature, the author's life remains a relatively minor consideration and remarks about his or her biography can often be omitted altogether. Consult your instructor on this matter if you have questions about it.
As three Garifuna men played instrumental music from the front of the church with two men on drums and one on acoustic guitar, the guests entered through an entrance adorned with flowers and baskets filled with ceremonial fruit typical of Garifuna culture that included yucca, plantains, and coconuts. There were also special lanterns placed among the baskets of fruit and flowers.
The onset of stress amongst people can sometimes drive them into experimenting with ways that help reduce the stress; drug use, high alcohol consumption and risk taking being a prime example.

“We often cite these kinds of papers almost without thinking about it,” says Paul Fossati, one of Grimes’s research colleagues. The same could be said for many of the methods and databases in the top 100. The list reveals just how powerfully research has been affected by computation and the analysis of large data sets. But it also serves as a reminder that the position of any particular methods paper or database at the top of the citation charts is also down to luck and circumstance.
Once guests were seated, the formal procession began with a group of women entering the church led by two young women carrying flags, followed by others singing, dancing and sometimes twirling with one hand in the air. Some women wore traditional Garifuna dresses and head scarves in bright, ethnic prints and some in solid colors. Others wore their own skirts and shirts and also accentuated these with colorful head scarves. The dancing women sang evocative songs in a call and response type manner, danced the from side to side, and moved from the back of the church towards the altar as the audience watched and swayed while the Garifuna choir encouraged them along. Leading the group was Maria Elena Zuñiga and Olga Suazo, and within this group of women dancing and singing down the aisle, all generations were represented; daughters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, and two Garifuna Catholic nuns. Some younger mothers even carried their young daughters or held their hands as they danced down the aisle past Doña Zoila who proudly looked on from her seat of importance in the front of the church. Then as the women made it to the front, many of them took their place in the choir to the left of the altar. Some even picked up instruments including maracas, a guiro, and a clave and joined the male drummers in music making.
The top-100 list is scattered with other tools essential to crystallography and structural biology. These include papers describing the HKL suite (number 23) for analysing X-ray diffraction data; the PROCHECK programs (number 71) used to analyse whether a proposed protein structure seems geometrically normal or outlandish; and two programs, used to sketch molecular structures (numbers 82 and 95). These tools are the “bricks and mortar” for determining crystal structures, says Philip Bourne, associate director for data science at the US National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.
Mitchell Stephens in “By Means of the Visible: A Picture’s Worth,” Ward Churchill in “Crimes Against Humanity,” and the director of Within These Walls, Mike Robe, concur that images such as gestures, symbols, and pictures have a widespread and profound influence....
