trip to the snow. When the salesclerk in the store approached Tom, this following conversation occurred:
Salesclerk: Do you need any help.
Tom: Yeah, I do. Some friends are going camping next week. I need a sleeping bag that is waterproof and good to -10 degrees. I also need new hiking boots to go hiking in the snow.
Salesclerk: Okay, We have two waterproof sleeping bags in stock. The temp 300 and the fortitude 9.3. The temp 300 is made from a tech material with polyester filling and the fortitude 9.3 has down filling. The temp 300 is $400 and the fortitude 9.3 is $800. It is a luxury product.
Tom: That is a bit more than I was looking to spend.
Salesclerk: I have one more, it’s a display item. It’s going cheap for $200. Let’s have a look at it.
They go over to look at the sleeping bag. Tom is pretty happy with it and agrees to buy it.
A week later, after a very cold trip in the mountain, Tom returns to the store very angry. As it turns out the sleeping bad was not waterproof. In fact, he spends most of the week very wet and had to share a sleeping bag with a friend. He has also done some research online and discovered that the sleeping bag is not good to -10 degrees.

Metaphor in The Author to Her Book

The Author to Her Book by Anne Bradstreet is a perfect representation of the author’s feelings towards her book following its publication and criticism for being an unfinished piece. Bradstreet uses the controlling metaphor in the poem to illustrate an author’s dissatisfaction with her book. In essence, she uses the leading metaphor entailing Bradstreet and her book to the association of a caring mother and her kid so as to demonstrate the complicated attitude of the author, which changes in the entire process of the work. The controlling metaphor represents the poem’s part that expresses the faults characterizing her book, which shows the author’s conflicting tone. Thus, Bradstreet uses metaphor in the poem to clearly communicate her emotions towards the publication of her works.

While Bradstreet applies extended metaphor in the poem, The Author to Her Book to stress her displeasure with the works, she demonstrates an unwillingness to abandon her original piece. In the first line, Bradstreet offers the overall description regarding her view of her own creation. For instance, she says “ill-formed offspring” to illustrate that the book is her own making and that it is flawed (Bradstreet 1). Additionally, the author expresses her feeling of embarrassment concerning the publication of her private pieces without her approval. Bradstreet feels disappointed that the works were published before they were corrected and edited. From line six to nine, the author compares the humiliation from her unperfected work to the shame that a parent experiences because of their irritable child. Moreover, Bradstreet shows her intention to delete errors in line 10 through 14 of the poem. However, she notices that it is impossible to erase errors since the poem is already printed. Line 9 through 10 demonstrates that Bradstreet is not the finest mother (Shmoop 1). The author attempts to renounce the work since it is “irksome”, meaning that the book is irritating and frustrating.

In The Author to Her Book, Bradstreet demonstrates her shame, which is manifested throughout the poem. She struggles with the aspect of her piece’s publication before perfection. In her skillful usage of extended metaphor, the author piles a complex series of parallels entailing parent and author as well as book and child, which are both creator to creation associations. As a result, the reader is emotionally connected to the author’s condition (eNotes 1). Furthermore, Bradstreet equates herself to an imperfect parent or mother through metaphor. In line 17 through 18, Bradstreet contends, “In better dress to trim thee was my mind, / But nought save homespun cloth I’th’ house I find” (Bradstreet 1). Bradstreet maintains that despite her intentions to perfect the text, she could only manage to “dress it” using homely cloth. Metaphorically, the concept implies that Bradstreet uses what is at his disposal while she recognizes that the flaws in the texts were as result of homeliness as well as her individual brain shortfalls. Overall, it can be said that the “child”/texts are flawed because of the defective mind of the creator, who is Bradstreet in this case. Bradstreet instructs the “child” in the final lines. Generally, she maintains that the “child” only has a missing mother, which is the reason why she is unable to dress in a better cloth despite her desire.

Other metaphors exist within the extended metaphor. Bradstreet illustrates that she “washed” the book’s face to suggest that she attempted to enhance the content and appearance of the book. However, Bradstreet says “And rubbing off a spot still made a flaw” to mean that she committed other blunders in the process of correcting the errors in the book (Bradstreet 1). The metaphors to illustrate Bradstreet’s activities on the work are responsible for the personification of the book as a “child”. She also uses metaphor in the last line as sending the book out of the door implies that the book is released for publication. In conclusion, extended metaphor is used in The Author to Her Book to precisely demonstrate Bradstreet’s displeasure with her book, which is released while still imperfect.

Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis

It may seem to you that healthcare has been a national topic of debate among political leaders for as long as you can remember.

Healthcare has been a policy item and a topic of debate not only in recent times but as far back as the administration of the second U.S. president, John Adams. In 1798, Adams signed legislation requiring that 20 cents per month of a sailor’s paycheck be set aside for covering their medical bills. This represented the first major piece of U.S. healthcare legislation, and the topic of healthcare has been woven into presidential agendas and political debate ever since.

As a healthcare professional, you may be called upon to provide expertise, guidance and/or opinions on healthcare matters as they are debated for inclusion into new policy. You may also be involved in planning new organizational policy and responses to changes in legislation. For all of these reasons you should be prepared to speak to national healthcare issues making the news.

In this Assignment, you will analyze recent presidential healthcare agendas. You also will prepare a fact sheet to communicate the importance of a healthcare issue and the impact on this issue of recent or proposed policy.

To Prepare:

  • Review the agenda priorities of the current/sitting U.S. president and the two previous presidential administrations.
  • Select an issue related to healthcare that was addressed by each of the last three U.S. presidential administrations.
  • Reflect on the focus of their respective agendas, including the allocation of financial resources for addressing the healthcare issue you selected.
  • Consider how you would communicate the importance of a healthcare issue to a legislator/policymaker or a member of their staff for inclusion on an agenda.

The Assignment: (1- to 2-page Comparison Grid, 1-Page Analysis, and 1-page Fact Sheet)

Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid

Use the Agenda Comparison Grid Template found in the Learning Resources and complete the Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid based on the current/sitting U.S. president and the two previous presidential administrations and their agendas related to the public health concern you selected. Be sure to address the following:

  • Identify and provide a brief description of the population health concern you selected and the factors that contribute to it.
  • Describe the administrative agenda focus related to the issue you selected.
  • Identify the allocations of financial and other resources that the current and two previous presidents dedicated to this issue.
  • Explain how each of the presidential administrations approached the issue.

(A draft of Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid should be posted to the Module 1 Discussion Board by Day 3 of Week 1.)

Part 2: Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis

Using the information you recorded in Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid on the template, complete the Part 2: Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis portion of the template, by addressing the following:

  • Which administrative agency would most likely be responsible for helping you address the healthcare issue you selected?
  • How do you think your selected healthcare issue might get on the agenda for the current and two previous presidents? How does it stay there?
  • Who would you choose to be the entrepreneur/ champion/sponsor of the healthcare issue you selected for the current and two previous presidents?

Part 3: Fact Sheet or Talking Points Brief

Based on the feedback that you received from your colleagues in the Discussion, revise Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid and Part 2: Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis.

Then, using the information recorded on the template in Parts 1 and 2, develop a 1-page Fact Sheet or Talking Points Brief that you could use to communicate with a policymaker/legislator or a member of their staff for this healthcare issue. You can use Microsoft Word or PowerPoint to create your Fact Sheet or Talking Point Brief. Be sure to address the following:

  • Summarize why this healthcare issue is important and should be included in the agenda for legislation.
  • Justify the role of the nurse in agenda setting for healthcare issues.
