The Girl Child in India:
The sex ratio in India stands at 914 females to 1000 males. What is perhaps even scarier than this number is that the ratio has actually fallen from 927 in the last ten years. The nation’s girls are indeed at risk and the subject of neglect and discrimination. Millions of girl children in India face challenges every step of the way and many of their rights are not upheld be it – health, nutrition, education, protection or simply a space to be heard. Communities in India are still largely patriarchal and girls always end up taking the second place to the male members in their families. The female literacy rate for women in the country which hovers around 65% as compared to the male literacy rate which is over 80% - is a direct reflection of this situation. Lack of proper health care and immunizations, malnourishment, child labor, no access to education, early marriages leading to early pregnancies and health issues and a total lack of voice or opinion on their own lives– are some of the many issues that girls in India face today.

Campaign requirement:
While CRY has always worked with children as a whole, the girl child given her special vulnerable status has always received extra attention within this structure. Over the months of April–June, however CRY is looking at running a campaign which would specifically bring to fore the issues the girl child faces and generate funds for the same.

Problem Statement:
‘Champion a fundraising campaign for cause of the girl child amongst youth from mini-metros with limited resources.’
In the movement to change the…...

Aladdin, a Marxist View

...he attempts to become the new most powerful ruler, but Aladdin still has the ring, in which he summons the less powerful genie. Aladdin has the genie transport him to where the sorcerer has built his own palace, and recovers the lamp, as well as saves his wife. The actual battle that takes place between the two is transparent of the economic and political struggle that goes on between members of all classes on a daily basis, and through centuries of history. Aladdin is full of symbolism that can be analyzed through a Marxist lens in literature. Some symbols are upfront and obvious, and some the reader must analyze and dive deeper into its meanings. Everyone in the story has a different place in the class structure from slavery with the genies, to poverty with Aladdin, to the upper class with the sorcerer, and finally the royals with the emperor and the princess. This story depicts how classes affect daily life, even as far back as a thousand years ago when this piece was estimated to be written. Aladdin is in fact much more than just a myth, it is a depiction of the differences in class, and how it affects everyone from the proletariat to the bourgeoisie. References Kendall, D. (2008).

Genie Wild Child

...repeat some part of it back to them. Like when they got her to say “doctor”. In order to make sure she was able to form special bonds with people, the researchers gave her a derogate parent who was with her during times a parent would normally be with a child. 3. They found that there was not really a way for the both of them to get their way entirely. If they wanted to preform good research on her, then some of Genie’s interests were going to put second. While if her interests were all a priority, they would not be able to fully study her. 4. When the researchers first started to teach Genie how to talk, things looked promising; so promising in fact, that they thought they were going to disprove the critical period theory. However, Genies progress soon started to dwindle. She was not able to express messages through sensible English sentences. The message she was trying to get out was clear, just not through words. So the case of Genie supports the theory that there is, in fact, a critical period for learning language. 5. They should continue testing her, without being moved around because she was getting proper care. I think she would eventually get smart enough to be on her own at least function on her own with minimal aid....

Tabii Hukuk

...doğuştan bir takım haklara sahipti ve yasakoyucu bunlara saygı göstermek zorundaydı. Bir başka deyişle, yola insan tabiatından çıkılıyor ve böylece, insana ait olan ve pozitif hukukun kabul etmek zorunda olduğu temel haklar çıkarsanıyordu. Bu kuram XIX. yy. sonuna kadar maddeci doktrinle çatıştı. Günümüzde üç tür tabii hukuk yaklaşımından söz edilebilir: Bunlardan en yaygın olanına göre, tabii hukuk ideal ve örnek bir yasamaya denk düşer; yasakoyucular girişimlerinde buna uymaya çalışmak zorundadırlar. Daha dar bir yaklaşıma göre de, tabii hukuk birkaç üstün ve esnetilemez ilkeye indirgenmiş, evrensel ve değişmez bir hukuktur: Örneğin, her durumda verilmiş söze uyulmalı ve başkasına yapılmış haksızlık mutlaka giderilmelidir (François Gény). Son olarak da içeriği dönemsel olarak değişse de bir tabii hukuk, dolayısıyla da üstün bir ideal hukuk vardır (Rudolf Stammler; XIX. yy.)....

...(Generation Y members) do well with the internet, but struggle with applied software. Zeithaml, Parasuraman and Malhotra (2000) developed service quality measures for service encounters in an electronic environment (e.g.SITEQUAL). This preliminary study measures the gap between GenY students’ expectation of and satisfaction with SPSS software. Altogether, n=43 students participated in the experiment. The results suggest that GenY students seek functionality and not fancy gimmicks in application software. While overall reporting satisfaction with SPSS, some criteria do not meet very high expectations and companies should note and address these gaps. Keywords: Service Quality, Applied Software, GenY Students Published by ScholarWorks@UMass Amherst, 2010 1 International CHRIE Conference-Refereed Track, Event 8 [2010] BACKGROUND This study has been inspired by anecdotal evidence from hospitality educators that their students are efficient and creative in the use of online games and presentation software, but feel challenged when asked to use applied software programs, particularly mathematical or statistical applications. The objective of this study is to establish preliminary insights into what GenY students expect from software and how they assess the quality of one particular statistical software package. Service quality studies go back to Parasuraman, Zeithaml and Berry (1985) and their work with SERVQUAL in physical service encounters focusing on possible gaps......

Gen Me

...the latest Egyptian generations are the most highly criticized ones because of the huge differences of attitudes between Baby Boomers and them. But are they like the American GenMe that author Jean M. Twenge described in her book "GenMe: An Army Of One"? Looking upon the different parenting styles, schools, education systems, and the 25th of January revolution, that had a great impact on the Egyptian society, American GenMe is so unlikely to be put in comparison with Egyptian GenY. In Egypt, Parents act as barriers for their children not to pursue their goals. They always force them to study for a certain major just because they want them to carry a certain title (Hashish). Egyptian parents undermine their children's ambitions as if they don't deserve to follow them. Such reason contradicts what Twenge says about the American GenMe who believe that everyone should follow his/her dream and that one must do what makes him/her happy and do what is best for him/her (Army of One 8). Moreover, Egyptian GenY may choose to study a certain major rather than the one they prefer because the idea of unemployment is hunting them. They are not always free to choose because they are uncertain of what could happen. Unlike them, American GenMe take anything for granted, they put themselves on the top of the list and it does not matter what could happen (Army of One 9). Parents in Egypt get caught up with their career and neglect their children, meanwhile American GenMe parents encourage......

Family Furniture

...Therefore, Family furniture should have different strategies for different competitor, which should be made by identifying their weakness. Some of the steps that Family Furniture can take are: ➢ Giving a larger part of promotional budget to Sales Promotion rather than advertising. Because it was seen from focus group summary that the purchase of furniture is impulse purchase if any kind of sales promotion is available. ➢ It should use nontraditional media targeted towards GenY and young professionals such as redesigned website and purchasing words from Google. This because GenY uses internet for most of the prepurchase search. ➢ It should change the products (in terms of style) that it keeps, and make the products more appealing to GenY. ➢ It can start a loyalty program for its customers. ➢ It provide home delivery of furniture (if presently not there) to take on the competitors having online presence. This and similar marketing efforts targeted towards GenY and Young professionals could help Family Furniture better respond to its competitors. Q4. WHAT PROMOTIONAL STRATEGY AND MEDIA DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR FAMILY FURNITURE? As can be seen from the research given in the case majority of the people considered some sort of monetary benefits as a driver for selecting a particular store and most of the purchases that were made were impulsive in nature. The following strategies can be implemented taking into consideration the above......

Manipulation in Arabian Nights and Days

...The Power of Manipulation In Naguib Mahfouz’s Arabian Nights & Days he addresses the dark shadow of one’s self. In the novel, Mahfouz uses the influence of evil genies to show that a man can be manipulated into corruption. He expresses this through multiple characters that all have the same influence and the same outcome. The result is an exploration of the dark side of identity focusing on the corrupt nature of all mankind. This is shown through characters such as Sanaan al- Gamali, Gamasa al- Bulti and Fadil Sanaan. ​Sanaan al- Gamali’s will is manipulated into corruption by the power of an evil genie names QumQam. The genie told al-Gamali that he must kill Ali al- Salouli, who is the governor of the quarter, or be killed himself. Al-Gamali agrees out of fear not knowing what he is getting himself into. By agreeing to commit such a crime he reveals his dark side in which cannot be handled. “He went deeper and deeper into a state that became difficult to control” (Mahfouz 17). The mind state that he remains in is almost unrecognizable because it is the opposite of what Sanaan’s usual persona is. “His nature deteriorated as though he were being created anew in a form that was at variance with his old deep-rooted gentleness” (Mahfouz 15). Mahfouz uses the work “anew” to express the extent of the change in Sanaan’s life and “his old deep rooted gentleness” to explain his transformation from his normal self. The new Sanaan is portrayed as the dark and evil side and to what...

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

...distressed he wasn’t able to think of any stories to tell. But he worked himself out of his depression, and Haroun and the Sea of Stories, a book for children and other people who have a natural love for stories, is the result. This modern fairy tale has many surprising elements, but here we will focus just on the core issue: why stories have value. Haroun’s father Rashid is a professional storyteller and a very popular one. He usually tells cheerful stories, even though they live in a very sad city. Haroun is beginning to ask questions about his father’s storytelling: Where do the stories come from? From the great Story Sea, says Rashid, and you have to be a subscriber to the water, which comes from a tap installed by one of the Water-Genies. But Haroun doesn’t believe him. And now a sad thing happens in their lives: Haroun’s mother Soraya with the beautiful voice leaves her husband and child for another tenant in their apartment building, Mr. Sengupta, who once told Haroun, What’s the use of stories that aren’t even true? Rashid is at a loss for what to do, because all he knows is storytelling, and now Haroun himself shouts the terrible words at his father, What’s the use of stories that aren’t even true? Soon after, in front of a huge audience in a city in the mountains, Rashid finds that he has lost the gift of gab: He has run out of stories. His stories are finito, khattam-shud (which means over and done with, the words all stories end with in Haroun’s......

Bottom of Form Shatakshi kalki Bill Rubinstine Writers Workshop 1 GH101 Claim on MICHELANGELO philosophy to that of PLATO According to Michelangelo, beauty of life lies within the virtue of nature. His art work always depicted the perfection of culture and time. For him it was all about deep knowledge of specific sense of human behavior and discipline, he was highly drawn towards Christianity which can be clearly seen in his all work for example : Moses, Bound Slave, David, Peta etc. Michelangelo was a divinely inspired genies he always focused on the importance of idea and freedom to break rules. In his sculpture Bound Slave we can see Michelangelo’s neoplatonic believes , not only soul needs to struggle to escape from this immortal body but also his work gives a feeling as if soul is struggling to escape from stone, which can be termed as pagan perfection merge with Christian faith. According to Plato, average person is not able to see the reality and truth of living and life because he is living in his own world of possibilities. Plato’s writings cannot be easily assimilated rather he wrote in such a way that human can reach to their own conclusions of life and destination. Plato believed that human can achieve whatever they wants only if he/she can go through the process of learning which is ......

...Alaa Elsayed Intro to Theater Professor- Roxane Revon Aladdin Review Aladdin is a musical based on the 1992 Disney animated film of the same name with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and Chad Beguelin. Beguelin also wrote the book. The musical includes three songs written for the film by Ashman but not used there and four new songs written by Menken and Beguelin. The story follows the familiar tale of how a poor young man discovers a genie in a lamp and uses his wishes to marry the princess that he loves and to thwart the Sultan's evil Grand Vizier. If you’re granted three wishes to make during Disney’s “Aladdin” you’ll definitely want to use one to discover how the musical’s creative genies pull off the magic-carpet ride in the second act. Seriously, it’s amazing. Hands down one of the best Broadway shows I've seen. The theater itself is majestic and as soon as the show starts, you are whisked away to another world. All the costumes, light displays, scene props were of beautiful colors and saying that the magic carpet ride scene blew me away would be an understatement. The theater itself is absolutely gorgeous and beautifully timeless. The details of the theater and especially its ceiling are just fascinating and transported me back to when it was first built in the late 1800s to early 1900s... I almost felt like I would see Abraham Lincoln when I looked up at the balconies! Historical and stunning! My only real "complaints" was that I......

From the time of the existence of the mythical beings, animals and birds in birds have always been common in most of the ancient medieval and ancient arts (Nepali art 71). For instance, the flying dragons, unicorns, phoenix, genies, monsters continued to remain regular features in several architectures and arts in both west and east. However, in most cases, the artifacts has been derived from the native animals and birds that are found around the place where they were created implying that the artist creates some forms of objects on the creatures that they are familiar with and those that are strange were never used. How the thesis statement is supported by the arguments and major points (Bring some evidence and examples) In the Nepali art, the presence of the Graaha or the Makars has a rich content of the mythical creatures. Some of these arts are still available today such as the famous hybrid man where an upper half is a man while the lower half is the serpent which is described as the Nagaraja. This was only found in the selected places. In addition to this, there is also a mythical lion in the hybrid creature. The crocodile is in the upper part while it is repleted by the two bird-like legs having decorative wings. The upper half that is the head of the crocodile retains the character of the aquatic animals. This describes The Makar and Graaha in...

...had two other siblings that died at the hands of her parents (one locked in a garage for crying and the other died from RH-blood poisoning right after being born). Genie however was left with her parents and began to suffer mentally and physically. Her behavior was not of a normal 12-13 year old child. She was strapped to an infant’s potty seat during the day and at night she was put in a confined sleeping bag. Her father felt she had special needs and felt restraining Genie was the solution so others would not pick on her or exploit her. How her father handled Genie’s condition did not help her, it only hindered her and made her abnormal. When she would speak, she was beaten so Genie stayed silent in fear of punishment from her father. Genies father felt she would die young, but agreed to get Genie help if she made it to the age of thirteen. The father reneged on his promise and later committed suicide the day he was supposed to appear in court for abuse charges against him. Her father took a coward way out of paying for his crimes and in my eyes justice was not served for the horrific abuse he placed upon this child. People who encountered Genie thought she had autism when she went into the social services office with her blind mother on November 4, 1970. Due to the social workers report to his supervisor, Genie was transferred to the Children’s hospital in Los Angeles where she could receive the help she needed. Despite Genie's relative success, the National Institute of......
