Born the second son of Abe, John grew up to the realisation that he simply did not care for the responsibilities and duties that awaited his older brother Simin. Seeing all the stress that it caused his parents, John saw no logical reason why anyone would want to bear such troubles. Indeed the supposed perks of such a position often seemed to be lacking in reality compared to what was promised.
Never really growing close to his family, John instead bonded with his cousin James Bright. Despite the differences between them, the two became quick friends. Whilst James educated John on the various poliitical debates ongoing in the capital of Silvermoon, John would in turn instruct James in basic martial combat that he had himself received training for.
John was looked down upon by his older brother, who was on the path to becoming a Magister, the same as James. John was under the prospect of joining either the military or the Church of Light. Opting to join the Priesthood, John spent the next 10 years training, four of which were spent among only those of the Church. By the time of John's acceptance into the Church, James was already well on the way with his training in the arcane arts. Upon becoming a Magister he was sent to Dalaran for further instruction, whereby he took this opportunity to advance his control over the arts and observe the political landscape involving the Alliance' various kingdoms and his home of Quel'thalas. When John left the monastery and was ordained, James was still in Dalaran and the two enjoyed frequent visits between themselves, reklindling the time lost by Johns isolation.
James's training continued in Dalaran, choosing to dip into the inner politics of the city from time to time. Meanwhile John travelled frequently between Quel'thalas and the town of Hillsbrad, preaching in most if not all major cities/locations on the way. Due to how…...

...a perception that was entirely unlike the external universe. “Like art, religion is an attempt to construct meaning in the face of the relentless pain and injustice of life.” (Armstrong, p. 25) As determine and investigating individuals, humans decline freely into depression. Religion is a callous struggle. Its perception is not noticeable and has to be prepared in a similar form as an admiration of art, music, or poetry must be established. But, in Robert Thurman’s essay on “Wisdom”, he talks about Buddhism religion. Buddhism teaches one about “selflessness “and “voidness,” or “emptiness”. Some people replied differently to these words, often being they were concerned that the terms indicated they were going to perish, vanish, or go berserk in their effort to seek enlightenment. In Buddhism religion, the main focus is the mind. Buddhist helps somebody who feels they are somebody become nobody. The idea of it is to become selflessness. Some say that Religion and Wisdom go hand in hand. That one is unable to thrive without the other. In this Explanatory Synthesis I will discuss Karen Armstrong and Robert Thurman beliefs and differences about the two subjects. I am going to be using the section “Homo Religiosus” written by Armstrong and the section “Wisdom” written by Thurman to compare the author’s views. Robert Thurman is one of the first Americans to be ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist monk. He is a scholar, translator, activist, and lecturer. Thurman is the Jey......

Dragonballz ne of the was rude to her nor yelling or cursing at her to me that was really courteous of them to act in such a respectful and polite way .I also noticed that the author had a point when he mentioned that "it took only a moment to realize that this was not some stunt designed to promote a product or a movie" I thought that sends a really powerful message to the reader because it explain how people have the common sense to realize that not everything looks the way it seems people realized that she was desperate for help and was trying to give them a sign. The author was mainly focused on how some people could be affected by years of stress and they keep it inside and struggle till one day they just can't handle it no more so they go berserk. Theres one part in the story that confused me when the author said "when the police caught up to her the woman just standing there in downtown Chicago still smiling" I thought at first she was in Michigan how did she walk all the way to Chicago? In the end i think the police did the right thing by giving the lady the robe to cover herself and given her the help she desperately needed. In conclusion the story was interesting well written and the plot was well written and the theme was well organized. ...

She follows him out preparing to quarrel with him but instead he invite her on coffee and sandwiches. The man tells her that he used to work in a DHSS office and then she just got angrier than before because the DHSS are striking and then she can’t get any money for her rent or food. He asks her how many kids she has, but she won’t tell him anything, she’s still angry. Then he starts telling her how the DHSS worked with people before everything slowly went to pot.

Gun Legalization Benefits and Disadvantages in the Usa

...acquired quite easily via legalization, homicides and suicides are likely to increase significantly. Alarming statistics each year indicate that more than thirty thousand people die and this includes children, women and men (Weil and Bill 43). What is more shocking is that from the thirty thousand deaths, one thousand and five hundred people are as a result of accidental shooting (Cook, Molliconi and Cole 88). It is undeniable that precautions should be taken to ensure that citizens issued with guns are of clean record. Suppose one is issued with a gun today with sane mind, what precautions are taken to ensure such a person maintains his or her sanity? Legalization of guns is flawed in this aspect because when a person issued with a gun goes berserk in public, the result is quite disastrous was the case in the Virginia Tech incident of 2007 and the Columbine High School killings of 1999 in Colorado. Block and Block (289) say, “Lethal violence, even in self defense, only engenders more violence.” Guns and more guns in the hands of civilians are detrimental to security since they lead to a high rise in homicides, crime, violence, and suicides. Increasing the availability of guns through gun legalization, the American society can expect nothing short of more deaths and injuries (Homsher 113). Mortality has increased due to having many guns in circulation. Guns that are kept at home put children at risk because out of curiosity, children have mishandled these guns resulting......

News of the World Phone Hacking a Scandal, a Media Relations Analysis

...police force but also more than six thousand pages of evidence gathered over 650 hearings. (Sickle. 2012.). As a result Coulson, Goodman, Brooks and former chief reporter, John Kay were all charged and arrested under various counts of misconduct. (Chandrasekhar. Wardrop. Trotman. 2005.). These were certain areas explored in the inquiry, from where future implications could arise from or from which further governance of current legislations maybe applied. The areas were categorized as “Berserk & Shouty”, “Dirty Bathwater”, “More Privacy?”, “Global Trends”, and “Going Forward”. (Sickle. 2012.). The hacking scandal or ‘hackgate’ as it is now known is viewed as a media epidemic. This is in tangent with the unique competitive nature of the UK tabloid media industry. (Sickle. 2012.). This not only contributes to the “Berserk & Shouty” factor but when accompanied by a piece in the New Yorker by a Lauren Collin perfectly explains it stating that unlike in the US, print tends to come off as berserk and shouty as oppose television being a dignified affair. (Sickle. 2012). Although Rupert Murdoch tried to make this point in his own defence it was argued that the ‘Murdoch’ factor of money, power and reach had come into play hence making him immune from scrutiny due to his monopoly. (Sickle. 2012). In terms of the “Dirty Bathwater” factor it was suggested that Lord Leveson might be utterly disgusted with the findings that he would quite literally ‘throw the baby with the......

Example of Classification

...Fan Bases Fans are important for motivating their team and making it hard for opponents to play well, whether they are bandwagon fans, completely berserk, or almost non-existent. Loud, lively fans motivate their players to play better and make it a disadvantage for the opponents to play them. The Cameron Crazies of Duke Basketball are some of the most dedicated fans in basketball. For rivalry games, over a thousand Cameron Crazies camp for three months in Krzyzewskiville, or the makeshift city the fans make outside Cameron Indoor Stadium, just to get a spot for the game. They go to every game prepared with chants and have even made cheerleaders of the opposing team cry. Some television networks had to turn off the sound temporarily during the game because of the chants. Next, bandwagon fans only root for their favorite team when they are on a winning streak or have won a championship. After winning a NBA Championship in 2012, the Miami Heat was notorious for having the most bandwagon fans. It was especially obvious when fans walked out of Game Six in the 2013 NBA Finals a few minutes early and missed watching the Heat comeback for the win. With the 2013 NBA Championship win, they have the most bandwagon fans in basketball. Finally, some fans almost never attend any games. The Eastern Michigan Eagles have the lowest attendance in college football with the average of a sixth of the stadium being filled each game. More people show up to watch big time programs like LSU......

...The big question of the week, “Rudd or Howard?” I can’t go anywhere without someone mentioning Liberal or Labour. I can see why people are so interested they don’t want any idiot running their lives. They don’t want a sleazy, power thriving man, telling fibs for their living to get on top of the food chain. Good thing we have democracy them. Don’t like them, just kick them out. If this is the case politicians must be aware that they can lose their job just by deceiving or not delivering their package deal. I wish countries like Denmark and Thailand luck, that their next heir to the throne is not an absolute imbecile and lead them all to disaster, and take everything away from them. Four more days until the big election. Cass has gone berserk; she has planned a sleep out to the election. Mum has figured out who she is going to vote and I’m considering of doing a dummy vote. I can’t stop contemplating about how many people do dummy votes, imagine the whole nation doing a dummy vote. That would be funny. “No it wouldn’t!” I spoke to soon. “The whole nation will never do a dummy vote. Many of us see it as a privilege to vote, like Australian citizen immigrates and refugees from tarnished countries. To have a choice, have options open to us. No one would want to take that privilege away. A time where we are higher than the men in suits. Anyway, the whole nation will never do a dummy vote not unless I’m alive.” That last bit is very true; there will never be a time not unless......

Essay Lottery

...Paragraph 1 1. Thesis/Introduction 2. Financial advisor/lawyer 3. Money Issues Paragraph 2 1. Investments 2. Maintain income Paragraph 3 1. Family 2. Debts 3. Education 4. Conclusion We all at least thought about hitting the lottery and what we would do with all that money, but will it be the key to a promising future or a downward spiral of debt. Statistics have shown around 70 percent of lottery winners go broke after of couple years of winning. This is due to winners going berserk afterward with a lot of irrational spending and not enough planning. If I won the lottery the first thing I would do is hire a financial advisor and a lawyer. I think this is where a lot of winners make a crucial mistake by not sitting down with an advisor and make a long term and short term financial plan. My lawyer would be there to stop any scam artist, long lost relatives or convenient lawsuits that may arise. I may hire a personal accountant as well although I have trust issues with someone handling my money but it is something I’m willing to deal with to be financially successful. After I get all the initial safety precautions out of the way I would turn my attention to investing. I think investing your winnings wisely is a very big part of keeping a lottery winner from going broke. I would invest my money in mutual funds and bonds so that I got back a nice annual figure, that would then become my annual budget. With this tactic...

Journey Ti the Interior

The pairing knife and white mushrooms suggest the distraction that little experiences can cause and sidetrack the undertaker from their journey to the interior. The usage of parenthesis with the rhetorical questions (have I been walking in circles again?) reflects the composer’s and the getting lost easily in this metaphorical journey. The usage of the word danger and many and the phrase but only some have returned safely signifies the composer’s belief that everyone has been on this journey but some have never returned implying that the psychological state of some people becomes deficient and their normalcy is diminished as they go berserk on this interior....

Ragnarok Lord Knight Guide

...Contents * I. Pros and Cons of playing a Lord Knight * II. Types of Lord Knights * III. Best places to Level * IV. PvP and War of Emperium (FE,SE) * V. Final Notes I. Pros and Cons Pros Omnipotency – a Lord Knight is effective in almost all areas of the game. They can MVP, PvP, WoE, PvM. They can dish out an effective amount of damage in all these areas, they can tank, they can level solo, level in a party – they have the ability to do everything. Attack Speed – Lord Knights can achieve the highest aspd available in game probably the most easily compared to any other class. Variety – There are numerous builds related to a lord knight – Spear, One Handed Sword, Two Handed Sword, Bowling Bash, Spiral, MvP-Pierce, Berserk Build, and numerous more. Lord Knight is probably one of the most flexible classes in the game. Cons - LKs are good at everything, but not best at anything. They are able to do everything really well, but not the best in game. Lord Knight is basically “second” in everything – snipers out class Lord Knights for PvM, assassin crosses outclass Lord Knights for killing abilities, paladin outclasses Lord Knight for tanking. Gear dependant – I would say LK is one of the most gear dependant character to play with in many situations. However, I would say this is a minor con, as this may apply to other classes as well. II. Types of Lord Knights In this section, I will only present the mainstream types of Lord Knights that are deemed to be...

Murder Gene

...Murder Gene This is not a scientific or forensic expert term per se but is a term made popular by the media to refer to particular variant of the monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) gene which apparently predisposes an individual to disproportionate violence under any condition that triggers the carrier of that gene sequence to violence. As referred to in Mobley v State, "a possible genetic basis for violent and impulsive behavior in certain individuals." Also known as the rage gene and even more commonly, the warrior gene because of the theory that persons with this gene would likely have been the most efficient: berserk warriors on a field of battle. The murder gene, the theory goes, suggests that behavior and activities from infancy into childhood, and through adulthood, were not the products of free will as society defines this term because the individual lacked the ability to make non-impulsive, considered choices about his life's path.1 Authors Ishikawa and Raine suggest, in their 2002 article, that though then viewed by the courts as exotic evidence: "There are simply too many studies, in too many countries, using different methodologies that converge on the same conclusion: genes do play a role. Second, other, potentially less controversial fields of behavioral trait research have not only identified heritability in psychiatric disorders such as autism, schizophrenia and reading disability, but also in personality traits such as political conservatism. "Thus, it......

Lisa Van Houten Reversion of Parole

...stabbing Mrs. La Bianca a merely sixteen times even after realizing she had already been dead. This shows how much of little value human life means to her, because she engaged in committing a crime towards someone she’d never came into contact with prior to that night. Also, her consciousness of what she was physically doing had to be of great dominance because an average sound minded individual would not be able to commit such a heinous act without treason or motive. With her maniacal mental state being at an all time high, this leads to the fact that the minimum counseling programs assigned in state penitentiary institutions is not enough to reform a murderer of her degree back into general population. Those individuals who commit berserk acts of crime, such as those to the extent Ms. Houten participated in; “change of mind and heart” can never fully be measured, thus risking society’s safety once again. Lastly, and most importantly, Leslie Van Houten remaining in prison keeps the public a little safer and less vexed. If Houten was released into society once again, there could be a possible secrecy of continuation for the Mason Family, which could mean a feasible chance of uprise from followers both old and new. Since her imprisonment, the organization has reportedly grown in numbers by thousands all across the world. Releasing one of the original members of this organized cult could trigger those who follow the Mason Family to engage in vicious acts of crime as......
