According to 5/4th century norms and values, Euphiletus presents himself as a both to a good husband and good citizen up to a point where it was considered he made mistakes which lead to Eratosthenes seducing his young wife.

Firstly, Euphiletus presented himself as a good husband from the very start of their marriage, where he didn’t want to ‘annoy her’ so he had left her to herself however he ‘kept an eye on her,’ so she was unable to ‘have her own way’. This showed the Euphiletus was caring, treating her to standard expected behaviour in 5/4th century Athens by allowing her to settle down but also keeping her in her place. Secondly, Euphiletus explains how he had trusted his after the birth of their first child by showing affection by putting her in charge of his property and later Euphiletus describes as her as the best of women. This presents him as good husband as he judges her to be good at running the female counterpart of the Oikos, which in turn presents Euphiletus as a good husband as he’s making sure his Oikos is running correctly . This also presents him as a good citizen as running a good Oikos shows that Athens is also good. However, Euphiletus does present himself as a flawed husband by having no suspicions about her chastity, tolerating her locking him in a room, and wearing makeup after the death of her brother. All these imply he was too trusting which lead her to being succumbed to Eratosthenes's wishes.

Also, Euphiletus also presents himself as good citizen. From the account Euphiletus gives, one can see that he must have belonged to a higher social class in Athens. He mentions that his house is made up of two floors, with the women residing on the top floor and the men on the bottom. The family must have been fairly well off to have the servants and maids Euphiletus mentions in his story, as well as the loyal friends willing to come…...

To What Extent Do You Agree with the View That the Commonwealth Failed Because of Its Lack of Reforms? (30 Marks)

...To what extent do you agree with the view that the Commonwealth failed because of its lack of reforms? (30 marks) The Commonwealth lasted from the 1649-1653 and was made up of the Rump and the Nominated Assembly. At the time there were many issues that needed reform such as religious, legal, electoral, taxation and the constitution. It is fair to say that the Commonwealth did fail because of their lack of reforms to some extent; however this was not for lack of trying. The Rump did fail to reform, but the Nominated Assembly trued to reform but was dissolved by its own members before it could. However this was not the main reason why eh Commonwealth failed seeing as they were unpopular and seen as illegitimate. The failure of the two branches of the Commonwealth was confirmed in the Rump when Cromwell walked into Parliament in April 1653 and ejected the Rump. The failure of the Nominated Assembly was confirmed when Cromwell accepted the resignation of the moderates and became Lord Protector in 1653. It is fair to say that the Commonwealth failed due to lack of reform as shown by the Rump. Here there was no legal reform as the Hale Commission was ignored and furthermore, 20% of the Rump were lawyers by profession and therefore weren’t willing to offer their services for free. Furthermore, there was no religious toleration as shown by the reintroduction of a form of censorship with the Blasphemy and Adultery Acts; in 1650 this shows the Commonwealth’s preference of tradition...

Joe Decided to Change His Sole Trader Status to That of a Partnership with Saskia as a Partner. to What Extent Do You Agree with This Decision? Justify Your Answer.

...change his sole trader status to that of a partnership with Saskia as a partner. To what extent do you agree with this decision? Justify your answer. (15) A sole trader is people who sets up in business by themselves and assumes all responsibility for the decision-making and liabilities of the business. Joe enjoyed the opportunity to be his own boss as a sole trader and had developed a successful business where he made all the decisions on what foods to sell. However with this came a significant amount of pressure and a lack of flexibility, which is highlighted when he had to close the store when he was ill. In addition, with nobody to share problems with, he put a lot of pressure on himself and worried about the consequences should he not pay suppliers or the bank on time. As a sole trader, he had unlimited liability which meant that in the event of the business failing, the creditors could pursue him personally for the debts of the business. Saskia’s offer to join the business on a 50/50 basis would mean that he would then have somebody to share the workload with which would relieve some of the pressure that he was under. It would however mean that he would no longer be making all the decisions himself. Unlimited liability was something that Joe was concerned about and although the business would be stronger with Saskia’s capital injection, if they created a partnership, it would not resolve the problem of unlimited liability. The only way he could do this......

It Is Obvious from the Opening Scenes That Bennett Has Created Hector as the Play’s Comic Protagonist. to What Extent Do You Agree with This View?

...It is obvious from the opening scenes that Bennett has created Hector as the play’s comic protagonist. To what extent do you agree with this view? The language choice Bennett uses does create the image of Hector being the play’s comic protagonist however; on closer inspection it is evident that Bennett means to create deeper meaning. Bennett does this in several ways. When we are first introduced to Hector’s character the boys remove Hector’s motor-cycle leathers. A particular feature to note at this stage is the fact that Bennett has chosen for the boys to speak in French whilst removing the aforementioned leathers. This adds to the element of the comic as it could be said the removal of clothing is ceremonial. This shows that the boys are used to the activity and that it is simply part of a daily routine. Notice, during this ‘ceremony’ each boy removes one item from the leather uniform. It is clear the boys see this ‘ceremony’ as merely harmless fun: they are happy to participate. However; it does make the reader question Hector’s motives. Also, it makes the reader question the relationship between Hector and the boys; as there appears to be a lack of boundaries. Bennett does, however, create meaning with regards to the ‘ceremonial undressing’. The removal of clothing could be seen as a way off stripping off the surface of Hector. The audience question: is he the same person in leathers and when he is not in leathers? Is Hector the same person he is in school as he is...

Good Speech

...Each orator has his own way of going about the business of delivering a talk. Whatever the method, the audience will want to discover it. In general, the audience will find out whether the speech is delivered from memory, from manuscript, or extempore; and, if the latter, whether the man spoke with or without notes. The orator’s notes, when obtainable, also throw light upon the total portrait of a speaker. They give some hint as to the way in which ideas are integrated; how effectively the orator controls the details; and how he adapts a previously prepared plan to the exigencies of a particular audience situation. The orator’s own reflections on his method, when obtainable, are of real service. Some orators, for instance, use extempore method of delivery; they neither write the speech in full nor commit it to memory. However, they frequently write out and memorize their introductions and conclusions, as well as selected illustrations in the body of certain speeches. A second inquiry which may yield interesting information on the ways of an orator is: Do the speaker’s physical characteristics contribute to his effectiveness? There has been some disposition to build up a stereotype of the orator as a large, imposing-looking person. Presumably it is felt that a man of majestic mien has a better chance of success with the fluctuating behavior of audiences than a man of less attractive bearing. Thus certain orators “looked their part”; prominently mentioned among them are......

To What Extent Do You Agree That Angelou’s Poetry Presents the Female Struggle for Identity More Effectively Than the Male Struggle?

...To what extent do you agree that Angelou’s poetry presents the female struggle for identity more effectively than the male struggle? Angelou writes from many different viewpoints, the main one tending to be from a female perspective. The poem ‘men’ focuses on the admiration and vulnerability a woman may feel towards a man – ‘they knew I was there. Fifteen years old and starving for them.’ By saying ‘they knew I was there’ shows the reader that everywhere the young girl goes men are constantly watching her, looking for her even with the age that she is at. ‘Starving’ is a sense of desperation for something, in this case the young girl may want sexual experience this links to a later line ‘it is your juice’ this is also a simile, which may connote to the physical point, referring to a sexual encounter. However, with the sentence being short it shows us that a lack of detachment was there this also relates back to the young girl wanting experience. Angelou portrayed to us the image of a young girl struggling for identity due to want of a man’s touch, making the female struggle more effective than a man’s struggle. Whereas, in the poem ‘Willie’ Angelou shows the struggle for a man’s identity in a more negative view than the girl in ‘men’. During the poem it states that people call him ‘uncle’ ‘boy’ and ‘hey’ this shows us that Willie does not have a true identity to anybody – meaning nobody actually knows him, suggesting to the reader that he is on his own and has no body. ......

Do You Agree with the View That the Main Reason for Wolsey’s Fall from Power Was His Failure to Secure the Annulment of the King’s Marriage to Catherine?

...Do you agree with the view that the main reason for Wolsey’s fall from power was his failure to secure the annulment of the king’s marriage to Catherine? 1)Failed to secure annulment 2)Factions against him-Aristocrats and anne boleyn out to get him 3)Combination of factors Thomas Wolsey’s rapid rise to power following the first French war is often overshadowed by his even faster downfall by 1529. The third source heavily implies that Wolsey’s downfall was due to factions in particular the Boleyn faction, but it also subtly suggests Wolsey’s previous failures i.e. the amicable grant “fiasco” made him much more susceptible to criticism and helped sow doubt into Henrys mind. Source 4 supports the third source and also brings to attention the role played by another group of people- the aristocrats- who despised Wolsey and as Loades claims Wolsey was a “victim of factional intrigues organised by leading aristocrats”. However the final source totally disagrees with the theory that it was purely factions that resulted in Wolsey’s downfall and instead supports the statement given to an extent, but believes it was a combination of factors that resulted in his downfall, something which the evidence tends to support. There is no doubt that Wolsey’s inability to secure an annulment of Henrys marriage to Catherine infuriated Henry and Wolsey’s sacking was a direct response to this failure. By 1529 the pope was under the control of Charles V after the latter’s victory at the......

Good vs Bad Speech

...Good vs Bad Speech A good speech consists of two major things; good aesthetics and strong organization and knowledge. Having these two things will help you deliver your speech and make you look better when you deliver your speech. If you give a speech that you know absolutely nothing about, you’re going to look like a fool. Ronald Reagan’s speech was good because he had good posture, he made direct eye contact, he was well-dressed and he had knowledge of what he was talking about. If you want to have a good speech, you should make sure that you use these important things. Using good aesthetics will improve your performance or score on your speech. You should make sure that you keep eye contact with the audience. Keeping eye contact with your audience will ensure you that they are interested in your speech (“Using Eye”). It can also give you feedback. When you are delivering a speech, you want to move around a little. But, you should know your environment and your audience to know how much you can move around without getting them distracted or running into something. Before you deliver your speech, you should make sure that you are dressed correctly for your environment. Knowing and using these thing will help you understand how you’re performing during your speech, allow interaction with the audience, and gain you appearance points (“How To”). Strong organization and knowledge is another important thing to keep in mind when you deliver a speech. Make sure you speak at......

Countries at Very Low Levels of Economic Development Face Such Huge Challenges That They Cannot Hope to Address Them Without Assistance from the Rest of the World’. to What Extent Do You Agree with This View?

...‘Countries at very low levels of economic development face such huge challenges that they cannot hope to address them without assistance from the rest of the world’. To what extent do you agree with this view? Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which is the total value of goods and services produced by a country in a year, along with Gross National Product (GNP). This measures the total economic output of a country. These are two major indicators that help gauge a countries economic development. Several countries around the world have GDP’s less than $750, accompanied by populations earning roughly $1 a day. Life expectancies can also be as low as 40 years old in such areas. Poor levels of health care, literacy rates and schooling do not help an already disastrous cause, income too small to accommodate basic needs and resources, exemplify these issues. These are often defining signs of low developing countries (LDC’S). Within the 50 countries worldwide recognized as LDC’s a staggering 33 of these countries are situated in Africa, with 374 million Africans earning and having to live off $2 each day. LDC’s will continue to struggle economically due to factors that withdraw them from making development advances. Over the last 5 years Niger has accumulated roughly $965.5 Million in external debt. This is borrowing money from countries, IMF, World Bank and other multilateral agencies. This debt of Niger and other LDC’s has been amplified by factors beyond their control.......

‘Countries at Very Low Levels of Economic Development Face Such Huge Challenges That They Cannot Hope to Address Them Without Assistance from the Rest of the World’. to What Extent Do You Agree with This View?

...such huge challenges that they cannot hope to address them without assistance from the rest of the world’. To what extent do you agree with this view? The UN classifies a country as a LDC if it meets the three criteria, low income (three year average income of less than US $750), human resource weakness and economic vulnerability (instability of imports, exports, agricultural production etc.). There are 49 LDCs in the world, 33 are in Africa, 15 in Asia and the Pacific and 1 in Latin America. The UN describes them as ‘the poorest and most economically weak of the developing countries with formidable economic, institutional and human resource problems which are compounded by geographical handicaps and natural and man-made disasters’. These countries face huge challenges such as the quality of life within them, recourses when distributed in many countries are not enough to provide for the needs of people on a sustainable basis. In 2005 it was estimated that 227 million people within LDCs were living on less than US $1 per day. As of 2013 there were 1.2 billion people living of less than US $1.25 a day. In some cases the population has been falling, but high population growth means that the actual numbers have increased in the long term. Poverty is much higher in places such as Africa 374 million people are living on less than US $2 a day compared to 203 million people in Asia. Another problem these countries face is debt, from the 1970s onwards many of these countries had......
