In Elisabeth Bergmann's case it is just the opposite: she saw her passion for dancing as the opportunity to get to know new worlds, to teach others how to express themselves through dance and how to know others through their dance and finally, she went at bringing diverse worlds together by using a common language that does not need translation: the dance.
Bergmann took her passion for dance, mixed with her love of teaching and traveling and gave the world the opportunity to see and feel differently. he population of rinidad and obago was just happening to help her in her undertaking to see the world through its diversity.
Bergmann counts herself among those fortunate ones that benefited form having a dance teacher that not only convinced her of his own genuine passion for dance, but also encouraged her to put all her energy into a passion for this kind…… [Read More]
Both emotions and gods must be respected, according to Racine's overall dramatic conception. Neither reason nor passion is 'bad' merely an excess or an imbalance of one at the expense of the other. Similarly, Swift's dry, droll tone suggests his love of reason, wit, and his arch view of social niceties and conventions for which people have a great deal of emotional affection. But Swift is not advocating a triumph of reason over emotion or emotion over reason because he is satirizing people who do not take a compassionate view of the starving Irish. Rather, Swift suggests that it is equally irrational to cling to reason, and say it is economically rational to ignore people in need. The 'rational' extension of this logic would be to view human beings as nothing but animals, to be eaten as food. Despite living in vastly different time periods and deploying entirely different literary…… [Read More]
The character Ahab's pursuit for Moby Dick is similar to society's pursuit for Hester's as a symbol of their passion for (and against) sinfulness. For Ahab, Moby Dick is a desire that has turned into a passion because its elusiveness; his not being able to capture the great whale became a source of frustration from him. Passion eventually develops as a result, where Ahab does not care anymore whether he lives or not, just as long as he lives long enough to capture Moby Dick. As Ahab tells Starbuck, his pursuit for Moby Dick is guided by his own passion, claiming that he is "Fates' lieutenant."
Poe in the Imp of the Perverse is perhaps the perfect example of Hawthorne's and Melville's interpretation of the "great blackness" embedded within works of literature. In Imp, the narrator talks about his passion for secrecy, death, and insanity, forbidden concepts and behavior that…… [Read More]
Passion and Reasoning
Reason is defined as the (human) capacity for logical, rational or analytic thought, inference of discrimination. It makes the information available in the intellect for the will to act on. The use of reason in forming conclusions, inferences or judgments, which are used in thinking, is called reasoning. And passion is a strong, powerful emotion, or a state of mind, which is powerfully influenced by something external. Passion is also described as a state of uncontrollable excitement, or extreme and inordinate desire. ut passion is not opposed to reason, as many believe. Rather, passion results from the absence of reason that ought to direct it.
oth Tartuffe by Jean aptiste Moliere and Phaedra by Jean Racine are plays about passion and the momentary defeat of reason.
Tartuffe is as much a tale of hypocrisy as of passion and a suspension of reason. Orgon is so taken by…… [Read More]

1, What role, if any, does McGregor's Theory Y play at Patagonia? Explain.
McGregor's Theory Y plays a critically important role in the formation and continual strengthening of the Patagonia culture. It underscores a belief, in fact a core attribute of the company culture, that autonomy, mastery and purpose are critically important for employees to take ownership and thrive in their jobs (Camps, odriguez, 2011). Theory Y also brings a very high level of participative management into any culture. In the case of Patagonia, the focus on how to create more trust so collaborative workflows are created and maintained is achieved through participative management (Kim, 2002).
How does Patagonia build human and social capital?
Patagonia takes the mindset that creating a more open, collaborative culture will over time lead to greater levels of human and social capital being generated, accumulated and available for initiatives and strategies…… [Read More]
As a daughter to two traditional Chinese parents, I have consistently struggled with maintaining my individual identity while respecting my heritage. Part of this struggle is evident in my pursuit of a higher education. Since I have been exposed to the Western educational system, I have endeavored to attain mastery of the language as well as of the foundation of knowledge available. Because I worked hard, I was able to maintain a high grade point average and prove my abilities. However, this was all accomplished with significant personal conflict. Because my parents feel that women should be primarily caregivers, mothers and housewives, my education carries a low priority to my family. They feel that I should focus more on traditional female roles, whereas I realize that education is important regardless of one's station in life. Although life is a struggle, I continue to chase my dreams and hope…… [Read More]
I am a better believer, Christian, and individual because of these experiences.
I have the enthusiasm, drive, passion, and motivation to, one day, become a nurse. I know that in order to get there, I will need to acquire the appropriate skills in an appropriate environment. I chose Chamberlain because its nursing school is rated as being one of the best in the world, and more specifically, because it bears some semblance to an actual hospital setting. I also admire the convenient design of its courses, the small class size, and the intimate professional relationships between lecturers and students. My best friend undertook her nursing course at Chamberlain, and judging from the content of her speech on graduating from the institution, professional work ethic, and knowledge base, I am confident that Chamberlain is the place for people like me who have the vision and determination to succeed in the nursing…… [Read More]
H. crushes the bug which was crawling on the door of the wardrobe. However, the cockroach doesn't die immediately, and continues to crawl despite its injuries. The impression produced by this image of the wounded cockroach that tries to crawl despite the pain and despite its ugliness is what actually brings about her revelation G.H. feels that she must overcome her disgust and make a gesture of supreme communion: kiss the leper: "I am going to overcome my disgust, and I am going to go as far as the gesture of supreme communion. I am going to kiss the leper."(Lispector, 31) the Christian symbolism here is obvious: self-revelation can only be achieved, paradoxically, through self-effacement in front of the Other. The Christian communion requires the deliberate humiliation and annihilation of the self, so as to attain a heightened understanding of the self.
Immediately after this revelatory encounter, G.H. feels that…… [Read More]
My horizons significantly expanded while on this job and with the aid of gas chromatography and mass spectrometry experience, my areas of research and development base work increased exponentially. Finally, the jobs took me to the Northrop Grumman, where I came to perform next generation testing and method development. Given the continuous opportunities to learn more and with the current access to vast instrumentation, ranging from vapor delivery systems to DART-MS, I became further intrigued by the benefits of research. Consequently, I reached the conclusion that I am in the best position in my life to start the courses of a PhD program.
The PhD program would allow me to dedicate more time and intense efforts to researching and even trying to find solution to the security issues facing our nation. To better explain, the terrorist attacks of September 11, combined with a multifaceted array of international issues, such as…… [Read More]
My success in those challenging courses also contributed to my growing sense of confidence in my academic abilities to pursue this highly-competitive area of study in the future.
As an Asian-American, I am most interested in liver research projects such as those of Dr. Tong and Dr. Corey, because so many Asian-Americans are afflicted with hepatic problems, including some of my very close family members. Likewise, I am interested in molecular pathology research, such as that of Dr. Imam, in relation to the identification and accurate diagnosis of cancer and other diseases through molecular markers. These areas are especially meaningful to me because of the experiences of some of my close friends and family members who have been diagnosed with various forms of cancer.
More particularly, I hope to explore and eventually contribute to areas such as Hepatitis B treatment algorithms (including screening for viral mutants), the epidemiology of Hepatitis…… [Read More]
Mel Gibson's 2004 film The Passion of the Christ contains universal and timeless motifs, symbols, and themes. Among the themes that most viewers will easily relate to are the love between mother and child, the nature of human suffering, and the nature of devotion. However, one of the most poignant topics addressed in the film that also pertains to the modern era deals with the nature of government, the ways politicians function in their public and private lives, and the interface between religion and politics.
In the film's depicted time period as well as in the modern era, politics cannot be separated from many business or judicial decisions. Jesus of Nazareth was deemed to be a threat to the existing state and religious hierarchies. His teachings undermined the authority of the Jewish priests, who were in informal collusion with the Roman government. Although no exact parallel can be drawn between…… [Read More]
I am most passionate about people. I enjoy helping people, and see this as my life's work. I am an empathetic person who feels strongly about the value of support for others. I have seen first hand the value of helping and being helped. People in their time of need rely on others to help them, not just with physical issues but with the emotional side of things as well.
I can pursue helping people each and every day. In the present, it is important that I always take the time to listen and to be available for people. By practicing caring every day, I can also be better for the future. I see nursing as being a combination of having empathy, of caring and of being competent. Thus, for the future I can incorporate my passion for caring for others.
This means building my career in nursing. I…… [Read More]
Passion for more knowledge and personal growth has created the strong and determined person that I am today. I am determined to make a positive impact in my life and the lives of others. I am also determined to learn as much as I possibly can, never forgetting that the learning process is one that will continue until I cease to exists on this earth. Recognizing that true passion in any aspect of ones life builds strength and determination that is indestructible. I have never taken no for an answer and will not start that process today. I create my destiny and the future is limitless, for only I can place limits on my abilities through self-doubt and negativity. With faith in my abilities and in me, all things…… [Read More]
Passion: overwhelming erotic love. Passion: zeal, intense interest in a thought, ideal, belief, person, or activity. Passion: anger, rage, fury. Passion: suffering. Perhaps most commonly used in reference to romantic, erotic love in modern culture, the word passion actually evokes any strong, overpowering emotion. Mel Gibson's recent film The Passion of the Christ reminds viewers that in Christian thought, passion refers explicitly to Jesus's suffering. Christian passion is frequently depicted in the visual arts, but so too is the passion of romantic love, the inexplicable force drawing one person to another. Often mythological figures are employed to convey the archetype of passion; mythic figures suggest that passion is immutable, universal, and timeless. That which the gods can feel is by definition divine in nature. Titian's "Venus and Adonis" especially exemplifies a painter's rendering of archetypal passion onto the canvas. A Renaissance-era artist, Titian uses imagery from classical mythology to invoke…… [Read More]
Passion of the Christ
Director Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ, has had a tremendous impact on New Testament studies and culture at large. The movie's violent nature has created a great deal of controversy, but the movie has largely been seen as an accurate portrayal. In terms of New Testament studies, the movie's reach is limited, as it contains a relatively restricted look at Jesus' teachings, and the movie has been criticized as anti-Semitic. Perhaps the movie's greatest impact has been on culture at large, as it has increased interest in Christ's resurrection. Religious groups have taken this opportunity to use the movie as an outreach opportunity, while internationally The Passion of the Christ has generated a great deal of controversy, and met mixed reactions.
Much has been made of the violent nature of Gibson's film. Noted film critic Roger Ebert wrote unflinchingly, "This is the most…… [Read More]
Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ
For most of its duration, Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ lingers horrifyingly on a mostly-naked male body in pain; as a result, the rest of the film seems exceptionally anxious otherwise about the issue of homoeroticism. Gibson claimed in interviews that the principal source for the film's screenplay (credited to Gibson and Benedict Fitzgerald) besides the New Testament came in the recorded vision of a Roman Catholic mystic, the Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. Yet The Passion of the Christ offers inadvertent proof of the auteur theory of cinema, because Gibson's role as director entails a host of interpretive decisions. I hope by examining the ways in which The Passion of the Christ variously depicts Judas, Satan and Herod in ways that seem to nervously invoke issues of homoeroticism or androgyny, suggesting that the film's original source material may be the Gospels,…… [Read More]
Christianism passion "Atala" Chateaubriand. cites vivid examples .
Christianism and Passion in "Atala"
Francois-Rene de Chateaubriand's novella "Atala" is meant to emphasize the contrast between Christian communities and Native communities in North America during the eighteenth century. The text contains a great deal of Romantic narratives concerning the American background and practically turns the scenery into a heaven-like location. Even with the fact it is, at times, difficult to determine whether Chateaubriand wants readers to understand that Native American cultural values need to be respected or whether they need to be condemned, the truth is that the writer actually intends to highlight that Christianity is, to a certain degree, the only viable solution to a society that is unable to accept its destiny.
"Atala" relates to how primitive societies have a tendency to promote pious attitudes in spite of the fact that people are typically accustomed to associating them with…… [Read More]
Jewish leaders, rather than a teacher of a profound ideology that changed the world. The martyring of Jesus is a significant part of his legacy, true, but it is not the only aspect of Jesus' legacy of significance that is highlighted in the gospel narratives. The bloody nature of the death of Jesus also shifts the emphasis from Jesus' mind to Jesus' body. Even in the gospels, although the suffering of Jesus is highlighted when the passion is discussed, the bloody and horrific nature is less at the forefront, than the Roman soldier's cruelty and taunting of Jesus as king of the Jews, unlike in the film, where the torture of Christ, rather than his worldly humiliation commands the viewer's visual attention. This may be an unfortunate aspect of any film that focuses on the passion of Jesus alone, because film is a visual rather than a verbal medium, and…… [Read More]
Is there a clear relationship between reading, family, and religion? Most people might not see it immediately. However, there is actually a definite relationship between these three aspects of life. This fact becomes all the more clear when they are considered in an academic context. Reading, family and religion are all things that I can become passionate about. The truth is that when one such as myself is passionate about reading texts for religion, one will inevitably read about the value of family. Therefore, passion about reading about religion actually reinforces family values.
One of the best examples of the preceding thesis statement is found in the passion that I and others exhibit for reading the bible. The bible is arguably the most popular book of all time. It has been translated into so many different languages, and has a number of different versions and editions. There are people who…… [Read More]
Second, he must attempt to present good doctrine. Contrary to what some may suggest, these first two goals are not identical -- merely by translating from the page to the screen what the gospels describe happening would not explain the theological significance of the events, as Jesus is rather too busy being executed to have much time to explain his purpose of salvation in those chapters -- this purpose is clarified at other points before and after his death, and must somehow be worked into this narrative without making it overly ahistorical. Finally, in order to function as a film, the film must function on an artistic level and be coherent both to the viewer and within the tradition of Christological art. It would not reflect well on Christ to be presented within the context of a shoddily film -- many people would refrain from belief for no other reason…… [Read More]
Mel Gibson's film, "The Passion of the Christ," has evoked a number of different responses from viewers and critics. It appears that, like the topic of religion itself, the one certain thing is that it is impossible to remain untouched after seeing the film. Perhaps then a study of the scholarly and cultural ramifications of Gibson's work would be profitable. First then, the impact of the film on New Testament studies will be considered, after which the general cultural ramifications of the film will be considered.
Impact on New Testament Studies
Any film concerning Christ's passion is a combination of the four Gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Gibson's film is no exception, yet there are some points of emphasis in this particular work that may impact New Testament studies significantly. The first of these is the emphasis on the Jewish nation as sinners, rejecters of Christ and…… [Read More]
3. My initial career objectives are to graduate and then take the HICPA in December. After that comes the process of building a long-term career. I want to come into KPMG and be able to make a contribution immediately. I wish to build my auditing knowledge and learn about business communication and how to be a professional. There is much to learn about professional standards of behavior, auditing skills and learning how to be a leader in my field.
I see myself as learning these basic things in order to propel myself into a career in accounting, consulting and eventually corporate finance. I wish to help companies to become better, to realize their objectives. In performing this service, I will realize my objectives as I take on progressively more complex role, perhaps eventually leading to a partnership or a small finance startup of my own, following in my father's entrepreneurial…… [Read More]
Thus, God represents a loving, kind, and good man, but He is also a just man, and therefore, his chosen people must be just and fair as well. They also saw great meaning in all the happenings around them, and felt God was sending them a message to act justly and if they did not, they would pay the price. Justice and morality ensured their stability and so, they maintained the standard of justice and gave it premier meaning in their lives. They understood they must be merciful and just, and that they must suffer, as well. To be the chosen people is not easy, they have to live up to the task, and their meaning and belief in God and justice helped them feel worthy.
Perhaps the thing that most sets the Jews apart and helps indicate their faith is their long-standing reverence for tradition. They have created historic…… [Read More]
Reason vs Passion: Comparing Aristotle and Plato
It must be well known among all students and scholars of philosophy that both Plato and Aristotle have a high regard for reason. But what is their view on passion? It might be surprising to learn that neither philosopher holds a negative view of passion in and of itself—what both do, however, point out is that passion should be subservient to reason. Passion that is governed by reason is certainly not a bad thing, for either philosopher, and what is more important is that some passions or emotions should be promoted over others (Urmson; Taylor).
The problem that most moderns have when it comes to understanding what passion means is that they are defining the term according to all-or-nothing terms, applying a kind of either/or approach to the issue of whether one should live one’s life by using the head or the…… [Read More]

the passion in synoptic gospels vs john'S GOSPEL
The Synoptic Gospels, which are the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke, are called "Synoptic" because their patterns and stories show similar themes as well as differences. Placing them side by side, which has been done many times, can give a quick "historical" synopsis of Jesus' life. hile the Synoptic Gospels use many of the same patterns and stories, each author stresses his own themes, particularly in describing Jesus' Passion: his suffering and death. Mark emphasizes Jesus' suffering. Matthew focuses on Jesus' kingship and the jealous plotting against him. Luke stresses Jesus' innocence and its recognition by several of Jesus' key oppressors. The Synoptic Gospels use common historical patterns and stories to convey their messages.
In contrast to the Synoptic Gospels, John's Gospel is less historical and more poetically, theologically developed. John's Gospel does not use the same patterns…… [Read More]
There is a strange close relationship between Satan and Jesus in this movie. Satan is the only one who cares what is going on with Jesus, other than the women. Satan walks parallel to Mary when they are mourning Jesus. Lucifer temps Jesus in the garden of Gethsemene in this movie, but in this Bible this does not happen. Jesus, in the Bible, had been tempted by Satan much earlier when he was first starting his ministry, but in the Bible by this point in his life he was no longer feeling that temptation. Satan is portrayed as almost being a part of Christ in this movie.
There is a lot more to Jesus than the fact that he died. "The Passion of the Christ" subtly implies that the most important thing about Jesus was that he died, not that he had a message. He had a very important message,…… [Read More]
Shi Jianqiao became a media sensation in Nationalist China during the 1930s for shooting the ex-warlord Sun Chuanfang, a leading member of the Tianjin Qingxiu lay-Buddhist society (jushilin). She shot Sun three times on November 13, 1935 in prayer hall (congregation site) on Nanma Road. Although she was prosecuted for murder, the courts returned a controversial final verdict of judicial leniency, and the Nationalist (Guomindang) regime overturned this final verdict by issuing a state pardon. These events led to a public debate on the merits and demerits of filial revenge, although contemporary accounts do not examine the larger sociopolitical implications the case may have had. Shi Jianqiao represented the female assassin's singular and violent expression of filial sentiment (xiao), as well as the female warrior code of "chivalrous virtue" (xia), and helped give rise to a new communal form of ethical sentiment - "public sympathy" (tongqing). For liberal…… [Read More]
Reading Between the Historical Lines
Perhaps the most important thing that a reader can learn from reading Scott Martelle's recounting of a bloody conflict between coal miners and coal mine owners (and the groups that they represented both directly and indirectly) is that history is as much about what is left out as it is about what is included. While this may be rather obvious in terms of large-scale wars, it is far less so for minor historical events, although Martelle demonstrates that what constitutes a "minor" as opposed to a more important historical event can itself be a part of the erasure that occurs in history when the victors get to write the authoritative accounts. One of the spoils that go to the victors is the chance to paint the other side as evil as possible and themselves as white as driven snow. By telling the stories…… [Read More]
Thus, Shakespeare's poems have shown that they deal with timeless topics, topics that have proved their worth over time, such as love, passion, and writing. Throughout time, however, Shakespeare's reputation of a writer did, indeed, change. hile he was known as a businessman and patron of the arts during his life, it is suspected that he was not celebrated for his masterful writing until after his death ("Shakespeare Biography"). Today, however, Shakespeare is recognized as the premiere master of creativity and language who wrote in English. Indeed, Pressley and the Shakespeare Resource Center argue that "illiam Shakespeare's legacy is a body of work that will never again be equaled in estern civilization," suggesting that his works "still reach across the centuries as powerfully as ever." Indeed, Shakespeare is not only remembered for the plays and poetry that have changed the scope of English literature, but he is today remembered as…… [Read More]
Her selflessness was obvious many times over. In the eighties, during the grip of the AIDS panic, Diana was one of the first celebrities to be photographed holding the hand of a man who was dying of AIDS. At a time when children who were infected were shunned and people were afraid to help them, Diana took a stand and comforted a dying man. The sort of personal integrity it takes for someone to act as Diana did in that case defined her as a human being.
Princess Diana should not be remembered as the beautiful celebrity in the glowing white gown. She should be remembered at the bedside of the sick, and on the battlefields where she spoke out against land mines. There, where she was without the clothes and accoutrements of fame, she was truly her most beautiful. That beauty -- the beauty of a human being who…… [Read More]

When I was five. I took to it right away
When did it start getting serious for you?
When I had the chance to play for the city or county and then with middle and high school. My parents saw that I took to it really well and they enrolled me in lessons.
Do you think they pushed you too hard at all or were you entirely into it?
Oh, I love it. I had a passion for it right away. They stressed several times that I didn't have to play tennis if I didn't want to. But I always told them I loved it.
Do you think they could have spoiled it for you, in theory?
Yea…but it never came to that. They know better than to force that on me or anyone else.

This approach is significant because it proves how grassroots efforts gain momentum and affect change when passion is followed by commitment. Liz Fusco said the group's philosophy rested on the pillars of "education and the emphasis on black radicalism" (Sturkey). Education was essential to overcoming inequality and one result from this mindset was the Freedom School, which sought to educate African-Americans about their history and "emphasis on traditions of black Resistance"(Sturkey). The school's curriculum "emphasized the importance of historical knowledge in the formation of social identity. But they could also serve as a source of motivation for social activism" (Sturkey). The school is a direct result of what happens when people band together at a grassroots level and fight to make change.
The grassroots effort spread with Freedom Rides, the Mississippi Summer Project and the Freedom Ballot. The Freedom Ballot in 1963 is significant because it was an election the…… [Read More]
nature of war is noted to be persistent and widely remains the same over time; it is violent and leads to conflicts due to clashing political perspectives, claims casualties most of whom are innocent civilians and also disrupts the societal fabric at the end of the war. Clausewitz formulated a trinity in a bid to explain what war is hinged on and why conflicts often lead to war.
Clausewitz (2006) pointed out at Passion (people), Policy (government), and Probability (Army) as the three pillars upon which war is hinged. He calls these 'the paradoxical trinity' and that they are the three magnets on which war is hinged. His emphasis was more on the romance and stressed on how the different aspects of the paradoxical trinity interact with each other.
The trinity is an interactive set of three forces that drive wars in the actual world. According to Clausewitz (2006) the…… [Read More]
272). There were great changes taking place during that period in history, and not all of those changes had to do specifically with science. Some of them stemmed from science in other ways, and were encouraged to develop because they had a better framework during that time.
Philosophy during that time also had a "momentous transfer of allegiance from religion to science" (Tarnas, 1993; p. 272). That deeply affected how people felt about themselves and their world, and it changed the way many of them thought. Those who embraced science did so willingly, and those who embraced religion were also afforded that right. In other words, whether a person focused on science or religion, that person had a choice. Things were no longer all about the Church, and what the Church had always taught people. During that time in history, many people were afraid of the Church and thought that…… [Read More]
In La Ley del Deseo (Law of Desire), Pedro Almodovar explores complex gender and sexuality issues within the broader context of the theme of desire. Pablo Quintero (played by Eusebio Poncela) is an object of desire whose sexual power over Antonio (played by Antonio Banderas) leads to a string of unfortunate events. Antonio is madly in love with Pablo, a Madrileno filmmaker who happens to be also -- albeit less madly -- in love with the emotionally distant and unavailable Juan. Complicating the love triangle is Tina (played by Carmen Muara) who falls in love with Antonio by the end of the film. However, Tina is trans-gender and trans-sexual. Her gender performativity is one of the highlights and features of the film, which explores desire explicitly through the lens of homosexuality. Almodovar's film does, however, depict human desire in a more general and universal way. Desire is a force…… [Read More]
motivation." To pursue my passion for chiropractics in my homeland I have had to be supremely motivated. Currently, there is no chiropractic college of any kind in my country of Taiwan. I hope to bring my interest, dedication, and belief in chiropractics back to Taiwan, after grounding my knowledge base of this medicinal science and art at Cleveland Chiropractic College.
At present, I believe I have exhausted the full potential of study in my country for the discipline of chiropractics. While studying SCUHS, I learned a great deal about the body, and received something of a foundation in chiropractics in some of basic science courses. But to become a true chiropractor a student must learn the philosophy behind the history and practice of chiropractics and the full diversity of its techniques.
One reason I am so strongly motivated to come to Cleveland Chiropractic College is that SCUHS only teaches the…… [Read More]
passion and commitment to give something useful in everyday live distinguishes you as a teacher," says Professor Greenfield. Everyday, she tries to breathe the life of that mantra into her classes, where she seeks to infuse her students not only with the in-depth knowledge of the course they are in, but also the ability and desire to sit down on the weekends with a copy of The New York Times Science section. Greenfield is not alone; according to the American Psychological Society's "Those Who Can, Teach," other pedagogues like Satinoff and Buskist have found that their position as teachers is a unique one, where they can do more than merely instilling knowledge in their students, but also the interminable rapture of learning. The ability to do that -- to truly teach -- is the secret, and as researchers and lecturers alike, they have spent years investigating, learning, compiling, and now…… [Read More]
passion for the Biomedical Engineering field and wish to pursue it as my career. What separates my interest of Biomedical Engineering apart from the rest of the engineering field is its focus on medicine, and therefore, people. The ever changing medical field allows for the constant challenge that I thrive for in a work environment.
I originally became interested in the Biomedical Engineering field when participating in a project in my junior high school health class. Before that moment, I was unaware of the possibilities I might have for such a field. After initially learning about the field, I studiously read books and magazines about what advancements had been made in Biomedical Engineering until I was finally able to be accepted for and complete my internship with an MRI division of a hospital.

Ross (1988) notes the development of Romanticism in the late eighteenth century and indicates that it was essentially a masculine phenomenon:
Romantic poetizing is not just what women cannot do because they are not expected to; it is also what some men do in order to reconfirm their capacity to influence the world in ways socio-historically determined as masculine. The categories of gender, both in their lives and in their work, help the Romantics establish rites of passage toward poetic identity and toward masculine empowerment. Even when the women themselves are writers, they become anchors for the male poets' own pursuit for masculine self-possession. (Ross, 1988, 29)

This was achieved by the fact that college has allowed me to take 5 courses that are totally different from one another in each semester.
One of the essential aspects in personal development and eventual self-fulfillment is individual freedom. College promotes the achievement of personal development and fulfillment through providing freedom that is quite liberating. In essence, the student has to make decisions independently regarding significant aspects of his/her education. This contributes to personal development since the person is taught how to make smart choices and concentrate on what is best for him/her. As there are numerous opportunities to explore, the individual must learn to make decisions without increased supervision from parents or teachers. As a result, the ability of a person to make decisions is tested through analysis of the effectiveness of these decisions, which results in individual growth and ability to determine self-fulfillment.

Passion Home Health is a provider of home health care services in Camarillo, CA. The company`s challenge typically revolves around a shortage of care workers given the number of clients. There are two sides to this issue - one is the demand side. That challenge can be addressed in a different ways, but ultimately the goal of management is to have as many clients as possible for the capacity that it has. Thus for this task, the challenge will be on the supply side, for labor. It will be assumed that there will be sufficient demand for whatever the optimal labor configuration is going to be.

They were not informed of the reason for the code. They were asked "(a) How similar do you think this person is to you? (1 _ not at all similar to 11 _ very similar) and (b) How much do you think this person will like you? (1 _ not at all to 11 _ very much)" and other like preliminary questions to see if subliminal likes were noticed and present (Jones, p. 672).
Students were then asked to remember their "partner's" code number and dismissed.
First, the birthday-association manipulation was modestly associated with anticipated liking, _ _.15, t (107) _ 1.64, p _.10.

Finally, the same regression analysis showed that the birthday-association effect was eliminated after controlling for anticipated liking, _ _.04,…… [Read More]
To say that McCollum's resources were limited in this case is an understatement.
"Working on busts is not only capturing a protege's face; a lot of it has to do with hair, beard, look in the eyes, clothes, etc.," McCollum says. The goal, he argues, is that, "You want the people looking at a bust or a sculpture to be able to recognize the protege." Part of the victory of the artist is for the audience to know who the subject is; the rest is to give the bust some expression. This is the real challenge, McCollum says.
To achieve these goals and win these victories requires passion and motive, McCollum says. He argues that if an artist doesn't feel inspired, then it is very difficult to create a work of art that is attractive or conveys any feeling. Even beginning the process requires "that you have been inspired and…… [Read More]
Interestingly, the Politics of Passion proves that just the opposite is true. Women who reject traditional paradigms also reject Western idealisms about sexuality, marriage, families, desire and identity. Through their sexual activities, the mati women described by Wekker embody each of these elements, and liberate themselves sexuality, which in turn leads to greater power, greater autonomy and greater independence. Women are encouraged in this environment to rely on their own instincts, knowledge and expertise to do what they feel is best for them. They are encouraged, contrary to what most women experience, to do what makes them feel good. In this way they escape the chains that bind and subordinate many women living in other cultures who are brought up to believe gender distinctions exist and women have certain responsibilities and places.
If one were to adopt the mati perspective and apply it to their life, they would find that…… [Read More]
4) Wheelworks offers a few different forms of financial compensation. They pay wages that they describe as "the highest possible." This meets the safety needs of their employees, which is key in the retail business. It was stated that many of the employees have good educations, so if they could not meet their safety needs at Wheelworks, they would be forced to do so elsewhere.
Wheelworks does not offer commission. This is good practice, since their staff are more motivated by higher-level needs such as achievement and competition. Commission is insufficient and does not support Wheelworks' attempt to differentiate themselves with their high level of customer service. There are also profit sharing plans, which motivate the employees but also foster teamwork. This is also true of the seasonal bonuses. These also reinforce the belonging needs. In this way, these types of incentives reinforce the higher order needs, while de-emphasizing the…… [Read More]
The life and death of Jesus Christ especially him being the founder of the Christian faith should always have a universal appeal to all peoples from all walks of life and all ages. This has always been the foundational precept of the establishment of the Christian faith. However, in Gibson's The Passion, the universality was not adhered to especially when it was given an R-rating as a result of the violent scenes portrayed in the movie. Thus, younger viewers were not able to watch this contemporary interpretation in visual form of the Gospels. The film was a little over two hours long and the violent scenes seem to have emphasized further than what is necessary. Particular amongst the scene were during the flogging of Jesus and his crucifixion. Gibson went through the most graphical portrayal of which and some audience who are not accustomed to such may feel unease. This…… [Read More]
Adorno's theories on mass culture and commoditization were one of the fundamentals of postmodernism as it appeared in the 20th century. Even if rejected by many, nevertheless, his theories help explain some of the cultural phenomenon, such as the success of the American type culture, with its Hollywood movies and McDonald culture, against the traditional European one.
The tango dance is one of the most representative forms of manifestation of the Argentinean spirit and people. orn in the mid-1800s, tango was quickly exported to Europe and became a true success story, until its downfall in 1955. It was reborn in 1983 and has been a success ever since.
Investigating Adorno's theories and applying them in the case of tango, we may wonder whether this is the best example we may choose to argument the truth in Adorno's statements. Indeed, while on one hand, tango can be considered an element of…… [Read More]
Indeed, they are both supporter of Communism and here we are already talking about the mature period of Communist in its fight against the Imperialists (certainly, these are the same imperialists that would have paid Rivera for painting Rockefeller Centre) and the meeting between the couple and Trotsky is defining for the late phase of their relationship.
Artistic practices and values
Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath and Frida and Diego are extremely relevant for this category. First of all, Frida and Diego are members of the artistic community of Mexico and not only (and we are referring here to their presence in France during a time of artistic effervescence, as well as to their trip in the United States), this is the community that influences them and from where they draw their identity as artists. Additionally, it is their art that pulls them together each time the fall apart on…… [Read More]
The human race has been face-to-face with inequality and injustice since the beginning of time. First there was the inequality of religion, than there was the inequality of gender, the inequality of social status and most recently the inequality of color. All of these inequalities have been eliminated one by one with the belief in freedom. Looking over all of the events that eliminated inequality such as the French revolution and Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech a question comes to the mind. A question asking whether there is a "secret" to justice and if there is one what is it?
If there is a secret to justice, perhaps poets will be the first to tell. Maya Angelou, one of America's foremost poets, talks about the spiritual secrets of African-Americans in her essay "Graduation." At the close of the autobiographical essay, Angelou states, "If we were a…… [Read More]
The only thing that is missing is the freedom to make that choice, the freedom to do it without pain or sacrifice. But freedom always comes with a price, especially for women. In the process of gaining her choice, Ada loses a finger, loses her piano, and almost loses her life.
We have to also look at history in the film. The Piano seems historically correct because women didn't have the right to choose their mates during this time. Love almost always came at some price. Ada chose to express her love the only way she knew how -- through her piano. But she is not making the right choice, because in the process she is sacrificing herself. She is unable to stand up for what is right because the pain is too great and too lonely to bear.

My ability to communicate and convey my passion to other people has sprouted through my work with LiNK.
Having worked closely with the Cornell University chapter, I witnessed the development of leadership skills within me, skills that were both derived and discovered by my peers. Being an active member of various NGO's and other organizations has opened social doors for me, enabling me to share why I am in LiNK and making connections that will help us manifest our common goals. And because of the new discoveries about myself as an innate leader, I was able to gather together the knowledge and materials needed to hold a public forum at my previous university: Syracuse, where discussions and debates took place concerning the issues of North Korea. My confidence level increased a great deal as a result of these experiences and my willingness to share my passion with others. I have…… [Read More]
Detail Five-Year Plan for Career, Including Jobs You Want, How Leverage Education and How Prepare Yourself for This Path.
Experience has taught me that despite one's best intentions sometimes the unexpected evolves. Taking this into consideration I gladly outline my five-year goals understanding that unexpected events or circumstances may change my path slightly, but ultimately not interfere with my primary purpose, which is to develop and manage my own company.
In the next five years I plan to acquire the professional skills and experience needed to start my own information-systems business in the global economic market. To facilitate this dream I intend on seeking employment with Wall Street in a position that will endow me with practical knowledge in product development within the international finance market. I plan to acquire a position that will teach me how to market products successfully so I can translate these skills into solid business…… [Read More]
" As the reader soon discovers, this heart trouble wasn't physical; rather, her trouble was related to personal unhappiness in her marriage. The heart disease as not being a physical condition is once again reinforced at the very end of the story when the author writes, "When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease -- of joy that kills." However, the reader is well aware by this time that she is experiencing despair knowing that her husband is still alive rather than joy upon his return to her life.
Likewise, "The Storm" involves a character vs. society conflict. This time the conflict deals with the loss of passion in marriage and is perhaps indicative of Chopin's own extramarital affair. For the reminder of a lost passion, Calixta is visited by an old lover while her lover is away as illustrated by the lines, "The contact of…… [Read More]
Like many teenagers would, my beliefs swung radically in the other direction. While I had no intention of parting with my gemstones, because the harm done in the mining of them could not be undone, I decided to stop collecting them. I began to speak out about alternatives, and even chastised a cousin who chose diamond instead of a synthetic jewel for his fiance's engagement ring. I gave a presentation to my high school about the detriments of the jewelry industry and considered lobbying to enact stricter laws about gems and rare metal imports, so that any products would be certified fair labor and fair trade complaint.
However, that attitude could not last long. The more research I did, the more ambiguous the situation became. Yes, the circumstances in mines are horrible, and I would never want anyone in my family exposed to them. However, my family does not live…… [Read More]
intended major? Discuss how your interest in the subject developed and describe any experience you have had in the field -- such as volunteer work, internships and employment, participation in student organizations and activities -- and what you have gained from your involvement.
Until I volunteered at the MRI center with my sister, where she works as a technician, I never thought I would ever be enthusiastic about any academic subject. Having always done fairly well in school, I simply understood how to study and get by on exams. Yet nothing made me thrilled, or made me want to stay up all night reading just for pleasure. I kept waiting for the right subject to hit me on the head and then, suddenly it happened. When I was looking at images of bones in the MRI lab, a synapse flew in my brain. That synapse connected that magnetic resonance image…… [Read More]
Small & Medium Enterprises (SME)
Can Gain the Strategic Benefits of EP
Agility, time-to-market and insights into market dynamics are a few of the many benefits of standardizing the operations of an organization on an Enterprise esource Planning (EP) system. Up until about a decade ago, the economics of enterprise software relegated these systems to larger, more diverse and well-capitalized enterprises, with the majority of EP systems being installed and customized in Fortune 1,000 corporations (Velcu, 2010). These EP implementations began to be pervasively supported by Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) during the later 1990s and continue throughout today. As SOA architectures have permeated organizations, the lessons learned from a business process re-engineering (BP), distributed order management and software engineering gains have contributed to the success of Cloud computing in general and Software-as-a-Service specifically (Moore, 2002). In addition, Open Source Software (OSS), Cloud- and SaaS-based EP systems (Passion for esearch, 2012b)…… [Read More]
Christie's Education Application
Ultimately, there are so many reasons for applying to Christie's Education. After all, it is a chance of a lifetime. First and foremost, the program is definitely unparalleled, with some of the best academic programs and faculty. Christie's is located in the vibrant cultural hub of London, which I hope will be a very fruitful environment for my own talents and inspirations to flourish.

Additionally, I have a deep…… [Read More]
Ed Gold Scholarship
As might be expected of the eldest child of two Nigerian immigrants, I possess an abiding entrepreneurial spirit and drive to succeed. I joined the New York Investment Banking Consulting team at FactSet Research Systems in September 2001 and was quickly promoted to Senior Consultant and Account Executive. I simultaneously enrolled in an evening statistics classes at NYU and joined Weichert Realtors as a real estate agent. These varied commitments forced me to learn how to multitask and set priorities. I fell in love with real estate and enrolled in the graduate program at Cornell.
The real estate program brought opportunities to travel to and study emerging real estate markets in Nigeria and China. During this time, I earned the title of second runner-up in the Miss Nigeria in America Beauty Pageant. I used my platform to raise awareness about Nigerian issues in America. In 2008, I…… [Read More]
Indolence is the record of the century. Introductory pages to Yahoo, for instance, minutely discuss an individual's fashion as groundbreaking news (the individual, incidentally, can be one 'star' amongst many), various ways to loose weight, or the latest toys on the market. Instruments devised to further communication from reality become increasingly more complex. Whilst supposedly linking us to people, Facebook, Twitter and ilk create a 'virtual space' reality, and virtual space has become the order of the day. TV, itself, is an undistinguished conglomeration of surreal images, which, although allegedly based on reality, are, with the inclusion of news documentaries, quite distinct. It is for this reason that this age has been called the post modernistic era with the term 'modernism' being insufficient. Ours is a collage of impressions, with concepts such as Truth, Fulfillment, and Meaning, being, as Foucault, Derrida, and Habermas amongst a host of other deconstructionists, post…… [Read More]
This was due to the fact that defense attorneys often attempted to prove consent by showing that a victim did not resist the assault or had a sexual history suggesting that she would have consented to the sexual contact. Now, N.J.S.2C:14-2 no longer contains a requirement that the perpetrator overcame a resisting victim. Instead, in cases of forcible rape, the Code simply requires that the defendant: committed the assault during the course of certain specified felonies (N.J.S.2C:14-2(a)(3); was armed or seemed to be armed (N.J.S.2C:14-2(a)(4); acted with another and used physical force or coercion N.J.S.2C:14-2(a)(5); used physical force or coercion N.J.S.2C:14-2(a)(5) and -(1); the victim is physically or mentally incapacitated N.J.S.2C:14-2(a)(7). Therefore, the Code names a variety of situations where sexual intercourse between a victim and a defendant is rape, without evidence of any type of coercion.
