I have just learned about Everyman’s departure from this world and I would like to offer some instructions on how to correctly handle his corpse during your time of grieving. I understand that beauty couldn’t follow him into heaven, but we can keep it with him on earth for as long as possible through a proper process of embalming. I understand that the loss of a family member can be difficult, but this process will retain his beauty for the funeral and preserve a beautiful image of him in everyone’s minds. If you prepare his body, set his features, embalm his arteries, embalm his cavity, and casket his body according to my instructions, you will be able to preserve Everyman’s beauty even though he is dead.
Before you can start the actual embalming process, you must first prepare his body. Lay Everyman face up so that his blood doesn’t flood into his face and take off any clothing that he is wearing. By removing his clothes, you will be able to tell that the procedure is working correctly, so he must remain naked until the final step. Next, use strong disinfectant to cleanse his eyes, nose, mouth, and any other hole in his body. At this point, you can shave his face to give him a sense of neatness and freshness. The final step of preparing his body, and the most time consuming, is to massage his body. You must massage his muscles to avoid rigor mortis, which is the stiffening of the joints and muscles after death. That stiffness prohibits the embalming process by hindering the movement of the embalming fluid, which will later be injected into his body.
Now it is time to arrange his features to represent his natural face position. Try to close his eyes and place them in a natural position, but if his eyelids look unnaturally sunken, place a small piece of cotton underneath his eyelids to create the normal round appearance. If his eyes refuse to stay closed, you can glue them shut, but never stitch them closed. The next step is to set his mouth in a proper position. His mouth should be closed and held shut by string or a mouth form. You can sew his mouth shut with a curved needle and suture string, but this method is prone to error because the mouth can be sewn too tight, causing an unnatural jawline. Instead, you can use an injector gun and a mouth form, which can keep his jaw together using his natural bite and jaw alignment, causing a natural jawline appearance. Finally, you must moisturize his facial features to stop them from drying out and becoming unlifelike.
The next step begins the genuine embalming task, starting with the arteries. Before you begin embalming Everyman’s body, you must choose a place for the initial incisions, which will allow the embalming fluid, which is a mixture of formaldehyde, chemicals, and water, into his body and drain his blood out. The most common incision site is at the base of the SCM muscle and the clavicle because there is an artery for the fluid and a vein for the blood close to each other. Once the site is picked, sterilize the vein and cut an entrance point. You should place a drain tube towards the heart to allow the blood to flow out of the body and tie a ligature around the end of the tube. Then, you should clean the artery and cut an entrance point. Position a cannula, which is a tube used for administering the embalming fluid, in the artery and lock it in place by using cannula forceps. Use smaller forceps to fasten the upper part of the artery and restrict the flow of the fluid. Then, turn on the embalming machine that is connected to the cannula and distribute the embalming fluid throughout Everyman’s body.
The fluid will create pressure in his veins while it is moving throughout his body, so untie the ligature at the end of the drain tube periodically to release the pressure. While the machine is embalming his arteries, wash Everyman with antibacterial soap and massage his limbs to help move blood out and embalming fluid in. Over time, slowly lower the pressure of the machine and when you only have about twenty percent of the embalming fluid left, turn the machine completely off. Take the cannula and insert it in the other side of the artery that was previously closed by the small forceps. That will embalm the right side of his head, which was cut off from embalming circulation before. Turn the machine back on, but only with low pressure because the fluid doesn’t have to go very far in this case. Once the embalming process is complete in the arteries, turn off the machine, remove the tubes, tie off the vein and artery that you cut, and sew the incisions closed. Cover the cut with sealing powder to make sure that the body doesn’t leak any fluid.
The next embalming task is to embalm his cavity. You must first use a trocar to remove bodily fluids and gases from his organs so that they don’t build up and escape his body through his nose or mouth. Insert the trocar into his chest cavity two inches above and two inches to the right of his belly button. Use it to clean out the hollow organs in his chest, such as the stomach or the pancreas and then move the trocar to his lower cavity. Insert the trocar in his lower cavity around his belly button and aspirate his large intestines and bladder. You can also place cotton in his anus to prevent any leakage from that area. Remove the trocar and place it back into the chest cavity and use it to inject thirty percent formaldehyde embalming fluid into the cavity. Gravity will push the fluid into the hollow organs and the fluid will preserve and clean them. Then, move the trocar into the lower cavity and inject embalming fluid into the organs down there to sterilize and preserve them.
Make sure to embalm all the organs in the upper and lower cavity so that his body doesn’t “purge” or push the fluids out through any holes in his body. The final step in this embalming process is to remove the trocar once and for all and close the punctures made in Everyman’s body with trocar screws. The last step of embalming Everyman’s body is called casketing the body. First, thoroughly wash his body with disinfectant to remove any excess blood or chemicals left on the body during the process. Make sure to wash him carefully and gently. Next, apply makeup to his face to give him a likelike appearance and normal coloration. Cut his nails to touch up his features and comb his hair neatly. Dress Everyman carefully with your desired clothing or what you would like him to be buried in, and if his body is very leaky, you can dress him with plastic underwear. Finally, place his body in his casket and arrange the body to look peaceful and comfortable.
If you have preferences on how he is placed in the casket, you can change them at this time, such as having his hands folded on his chest or having them lay by his sides. The final choices are up to you. I understand that his process probably seemed overly complicated and unnecessary, but I assure you that embalming Everyman’s body is the best choice for him. As long as you follow the five main steps of the process in order, everything should be fine and his body should be perfect for his funeral service. Make sure to prepare his body, set his features to look natural, embalm his arteries, embalm his cavities, and properly casket his body. If you follow my instructions, you can retrieve what was left behind when Everyman went to heaven. You can preserve his worldly beauty for all to see.
What Makes A Good Sitcom
Webster’s dictionary defines a sitcom as “a radio or television comedy series that involves a continuing cast of characters in a succession of episodes”. A sitcom is a television show which is focused on funny situations over a plot, however structure still matters. A good sitcom should have the protagonists choice to pursue a goal cause the events of the story. WHAT IS A SITCOMS STRUCTURE The structure of a sitcom is as follows, you introduce what the characters want, an obstacle obstructs his ability to get to what he wants and he reacts to it how his character would. After confronted with the obstacle the character makes a plan to get rid of obstacle. After making the plan the character tries the plan but it leads to more sub obstacles. Confronted with new obstacles the character makes a plan to get rid of the sub obstacles and tries it with some success.
Then character wins or loses and it is shown how failure or success affected them. HOW DO YOU MAKE A GOOD CHARACTERS You can’t make a sitcom without interesting and funny characters but how do you make an interesting and funny character. To make a character funny you have to make him have flaws. For example Kramer from seinfeld is funny because he is oblivious and stupid, these can both be funny flaws. Most characters in sitcoms are either a wisecrack, everyman, nerd, joker, or a bully. To make a compelling character you have they have to have a fear of something that drives them to succeed . WHEN WAS FIRST LAUGH TRACK MADE HOW DOES IT AFFECT COMEDY The laugh track was used in many successful shows like seinfeld and friends. The laugh track was first used on the Hank Mcree show, because they only had one camera and had 3 takes so the sound of audience would be inconsistent. Soon after laugh tracks became every sitcom implemented tried to implement laugh tracks.
The laugh track was extremely popular until the late 90s. The laugh track was then considered unsophisticated this can be shown in shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm,The Office. Picture of a laugh box HOW IS A SITCOM MADE It starts of with brainstorming in the writers room, everybody will share ideas about episodes. The best ideas from the writers room are made into drafts by the writers. After the drafts are made there is a table read with all of the actors, after little changes are made depending on how the table read went. The shows locations are then planned and the sitcom itself is filmed. After being filmed it is edited and sent to the director who makes a director’s cut, The director then sends it to the network where they make a final cut and it is broadcasted.
The Women’s Suffrage Campaign
The journey for women achieving the right to vote has been very long and certainly not easy. “A total of 131 years after the initial implementation of the United States Constitution, women were at last explicitly included in ‘We the People.’ That is indeed something to celebrate.” The work of thousands of women and men finally came to a reality. A new dawn has come, and women can look to a brighter future and feel their voices were heard. Women will no longer have to feel trapped with the title of wife and the task of caring for their children and household duties only. And single women would not be stuck with the “old maid” title and becoming teachers or working in a factory for a career choice. They will now have the ability to participate in voting and feel a self-accomplishment.
There are not man pros to list for the 19th amendment because the right itself is a great achievement. Women can now feel a part of society and feel their rights of equality have been granted. They now can feel join in own issues concerning politics and they can run for politics. They can feel comfortable about furthering their education and career path. Going to college, becoming a doctor, working in law and sciences may now become a reality. The would be able to vote on issues to help their families: better schools, work conditions, and food conditions.
Although, the passing of the 19th was a great accomplishment there are still some cons to this law. Not all women and men would still have the ability to vote. Even with the abolishment of slavery, some black men and women cannot vote due to the “Jim Crow laws.”
Some blacks have had to endure violence for trying to vote. There are cases where they have been threatened, beaten, houses have been burned down and some have lost their jobs for trying to vote. Also, some states require literacy test and property test. Test to see if you can read and write making sure you understand what you are voting for and the requirement of owning land. Not only are some blacks not able to vote but, certain classes of people can face restrictions with voting. An example of this would be the poll tax law. “This tax of one to two dollars has to be paid prior to voting and in some cases states nine months prior to voting”. This would make it difficult for those who are unable to pay the tax and preventing them to meet the voting requirements. These examples sad and cruel and takes away some of the feeling of celebration for the women’s accomplishment. Yet with the cons there can still be some hope and with this amendment this can open the doors to more opportunities for everyone having the ability to vote.
In conclusion, just as change came for women after enduring a long struggle for their voices to be heard, change can happen for the right for everyone to be able to freely vote without pressure or consequences. Maybe using the same tactics, the women did by the organizing, campaigning, rallying, protesting, and last but not least not giving up which paid off in the end.
Now women can feel they are no lesser to men with regards to help shaping the plans and goals of the nation. And it is good to know that men were also part of the fight for them to vote. I am sure they thought about their mothers, daughters, sisters and wives too knowing they should have a say in their future and the future of the country. Thank you, men, for helping with the fight.
