We are all familiar with Robin Hood and his band of "merry men." Their creed to "rob the rich and give to the poor" was heroic and honorable during a time when the poor in England were being taxed beyond their means and suffering in squalor.
Nevertheless, Robin Hood's infamy has created a series of problems for his band of 'bandits' as well as himself. "The increasing size of the band was a source of satisfaction for Robin, but also a source of concern" (Thompson & Strickland, 2003).
It is no surprise either, as people are drawn to the honor of helping the poor and taking their own revenge on the Sheriff of Nottingham. Still, Robin Hood's growing concern is valid.
The band of "merry men" worked in the past because it was a 'band' and now that they are growing in numbers, their source of refuge and work: the forest, is….
In many ways, one could argue that this film is about self-determination and equality.
Would you recommend this film to someone attempting to understand the culture or event under consideration? Why or why not?
Yes and no. The reason why both answers were selected is because the film can provide an accurate historical backdrop of events and issues that England was wrestling with in the 1200's. Where, many kings and aristocrats would exercise tremendous amounts of influence over the average person. This is significant, because the overall brutality that was faced and the oppression that they would feel (from these regimes), would create a desire in people wanting to control their own destiny. In this aspect, this film would provide a good background of the emotions and violence that was faced by the average person (as they were forced conform to the system or face persecution). This would help an individual….

Moving on to the means of generating revenue and controlling the inventory of goods and supplies, we should mention that the first step consists of rationing the supplies in the forest. Due to the increased number of Merrymen living within the Sherwood Forest, the supplies gathered are insufficient in liaison to their needs. We can consider the supply of products (the loot) as being roughly constant. An augmented demand confronted with a constant supply leads to a shortage of products. In order to deal with this matter, Robin could keep a tighter control over the supplies and allocate them more strictly.
However, if the number of men decreases as a result of the intense controls, the demand will also decrease and, thus, the products will be enough. It is up to Robin to decide how much level of control he wishes to impose and also how many men he needs in….
Robin Hood's decision has become increasingly complex, as he now has a large number of stakeholders to consider. These include his men, the townsfolk and farmers, the barons, the prince, the sheriff and his most loyal followers. Each has a specific stake in Hood's decision. The most important stakeholder is himself, but beyond that Robin needs a vision for what he wants to be. This vision will help him clarify who the other major stakeholders are -- the townspeople and farmers, or his most loyal men. Robin's vision is either going to be for an exit strategy from the banditry industry or to transition the business to a national-level political model.
There is also an implicit social contract among the merry men, and also between the merry men and the community. One of Hood's options -- a fixed tax -- explicitly violates the social contract that he has with the community.….

e. Sets in The Adventures of Robin Hood are brilliant and range from natural forest scenes to dark dungeons. The medieval mood is captured well on the big screen because of costumes, too. Peasants wear tattered rags, while Prince John's henchman all have metal hats. Props ranging from weaponry to food establish The Adventures of Robin Hood within the time period of the Dark Ages. The use of horses also helps capture the legendary tale. Art direction is particularly good during the archery tournament, such as when Robin Hood's arrow splits his opponents.
3. The directors announce their style in two main ways. First, they include a plethora of swashbuckling scenes that reveal a predilection for action. Second, they appreciate the power of large crowds, which are used at several points in the film both for Robin Hood and for the Prince. The directors also take advantage of many different cinematographic techniques that change the pace and mood of the movie well. For example, close-up shots of Robin Hood and Maid Marian are interspersed with long shots of the castle. Michael Curtiz and William Keightley are especially effective during scenes like the royal banquet, the archery tournament, and especially the fight and chase scenes in which the overall visual effect is more important than any of the details. However, The Adventures of Robin Hood is far from being a monotonous directorial project. The directors alternate between shooting styles and change the pace of the movie regularly.
4. The Adventures of Robin Hood captures adventure and excitement especially well for a film produced in 1938 without any special effects. The directors impart a message of social justice into what has become a cliche legend. Depicting Robin Hood as a political leader and not a rebel without a cause was especially effective. Making the movie a fun comedic swashbuckler also helps bring the legend alive. Robin Hood is romanticized, as any legendary hero should be. His character is rather simple, and Robin Hood has no dark side whatsoever. The film has a happy and predictable ending, but still manages to be entertaining.
Robin should first establish different departments to fulfill the varied needs of the organization in a systematic and efficient manner. In that regard, Robin should immediately appoint department heads in the following areas: shelter facilities, food storage and distribution, recruitment and hiring, training, and field operations.
The head of shelter facilities must solve the problem of ensuring that employees in the field have safe accommodations in remote areas of operation. Ideally, this will be accomplished by recruiting carpenters and other tradesmen who can develop processes for quickly assembling, disassembling, and transporting shelters while traveling remote forests. Similarly, the heads of food supply and human resource departments must immediately develop methods of supplying field operations and of hiring and training employees who will contribute to the future success of the organization.

The character of Robin of Locksley in Kevin Reynolds' film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves goes through a complex set of events as he tries to discover his personal identity. In his journey he realizes that it is essential for him to get actively involved in taking on a hero-like attitude in order to save numerous individuals from falling victims to an oppressive system. As a nobleman, one would expect Robin to react differently in the face of danger, taking into account that it was characteristic for people during the era to put across attitudes that had nothing to do with the general public's well-being.
In contrast to how most would expect, Robin takes on a rebellious nature and practically….

One of the key Robin-hood rules, when it comes to philanthropy, is Relentless Monetization. Relentless Monetization or “RM” concentrates on mutual expressions for inner deliberations, interaction with grantees, openness, examination, position grants or loans, and calculating the overall performance of the financier (as well as the grant) (Weinstein & Bradburd, 2013). Disclosing grant-making to the rigor of RM alters the type of grant-making considerations. Instead of loosely discussing inspiring professional company directors or innovative quests, employees depend on a mutual language that focuses on results-oriented facts. Furthermore, RM enables funders to create the sets of rules it utilizes to designate objective-appropriate valuation to interventions designed for outside examination.
Social networking is allowing people to produce, sign up for, and develop organizations surrounding problems they are concerned about and beyond their control. Whether its flash activists or even fundraisers like Twestival, pursuits like these are rising. As non-profits start to participate their….
Public Health Then and Now
I consider Fitzhugh Mullan's article "Public Health Then and Now: Don Quixote, Machiavelli, and Robin Hood: Public Health Practice, Past and Present" a very provocative yet utmost informative and challenging article for the health practitioner and interested layman alike that provides its reader with precious information about the qualities a health worker will have to have and the relationships he will have to entertain at the various stages of his work if he wants to meet his manifold professional responsibilities. Both the title of the article and its abstract (Mullan, 2000, 702) clearly describe the research problem the scope of which the author has appropriately delimited.
I think that the whole article is of eminent importance for the entire public health profession because it covers two areas that do not seem to have caught much attention in the scholarly literature: Dynamic political involvement of public health….
"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." This adage takes on various meanings according to context -- in the early twenty-first century, it will most likely be used to imply too much seriousness about schoolwork. But in the consideration of children's literature in the nineteenth century, we face the prospect of a society where child labor was actually a fact of life. e are familiar with the stereotypes that still linger on in the collective imagination, of young boys forced to work as chimney-sweeps or girls forced to labor in textile factories. But the simple fact is that between the present day and the emergence of children's literature as a category of its own, largely during the nineteenth century, there has been a widespread reform in labor practices and social mores which has altered the meaning of what "work" might mean for young Jack, or indeed….

Jews in "Ivanhoe"
Sir Walter Scott's novel Ivanhoe makes Jews central to the plot, but it is not an anti-Semitic book. Despite the inclusion of some traditional stereotypes which -- given the largely "antiquarian" nature of Scott's interests (to recall the word he uses) in telling this tale -- are aimed above all else at historical accuracy for the time period of the book and are not intended to be offensive, Scott writes as though some tenet of Christian chivalry entails tolerance and open-mindedness towards the Jewish population in England in the Middle Ages. In this paper I will suggest that a thorough examination of the novel's portrayal of twelfth-century Judaism reveals that Scott is really writing from a deep understanding of what life is like at the margins -- perhaps because he is writing as a Scotsman and as a physically disabled person (Scott famously had a club-foot) --….
movie industry in America has been controlled by some of the monolithic companies which not only provided a place for making the movies, but also made the movies themselves and then distributed it throughout the entire country. These are movie companies and their entire image revolved around the number of participants of their films. People who wanted to see the movies being made had to go to the studios in order to see them. They made movies in a profitable manner for the sake of the studios, but placed the entire industry under their control and dominated over it. The discussion here is about some of those famous studios inclusive of that of names like Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Culver, RKO, Paramount Studios, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, Raleigh Studio, Hollywood Center Studio, Sunset Gower Studio, Ren-Mar Studios, Charlie Chaplin Studios and now, Manhattan Beach….

In this regard, when wage levels fell in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, the standard of living for laborers and cottagers in England declined precipitously and they were compelled to use the majority of their cash, garden crops, and milk just to buy bread and clothing (Kulikoff 2000:19). Not surprisingly, many of these workers found it almost impossible in some cases to even survive, even with the entire family - including young children - working as hard as possible (Kulikoff 19).
In some cases, laborers (but not their families) were paid in food and drink as part of their wages and some likely kept fowl or a pig, and cottagers, of course, produced much of their own food; nevertheless, poor landless families ate bread and porridge, on occasion supplemented by milk, ale, cheese, eggs, or cheap meat, a diet that was far removed from the same level enjoyed….

shifting seas of global social consciousness and worldwide political hierarchy have only recently brought the word 'terrorism' to the quotidian mind of Americans, it has long enjoyed a cemented place in the construct of civilization. Daily associations between the word terrorism and the frightening images of gore and destruction rampant on the 24-hour news networks affirm the complicated understanding of terrorism in the modern world; bombings on an Israeli bus, explosions outside a Pakistani supermarket, and subway atrocities mingle with recent memories of the World Trade center and recollections of the bloody IRA, Black Liberation Army, and Basque independence movements. Personal reaction and affiliation to the events, movement, and goals of each group's paradigm resonates inside a loose definition of political violence, while governmental response is chiseled, monochromatic, and decisive. While the motives and end-results always differ, the path to terrorism is marked by similar goal posts. These similarities….
