The scarlet letter
1. Did you like this book? why or why not?
It was a bit hard to read this book, the sentences can be confusing and they made me read every single sentence over and over.However,Even though I didn't love this book, I kind of could relate to the book. We live in a world where everyone's opinnion are important, where society can say if something is acceptable or unaceptable.I kind of liked this book, but the tittle called me attention so I read it, and I can tell that the things that happen in the book, actually happens in the actuality, maybe not in this country, but other countries. The book tell us that what people think, it doesn't matter, what it really matters is what we think and it's really true because we are influeced by people, by society because we are afraid of being judged.
2. Could you relate to the story? How did it connect to your life?
I can relate this book to the society, by mentioning how at school kids care about what other kids wear, and who they hang out with as well as many other things. And these kids allow that to affect their performance and happiness at school. The opinions of others should not be allowed to consume anyone's lives. It should only be used for beneficial reasons. That's how I connect it to this society we live in.
3.How does the tittle relate to the book?
I had to investigate about it a little bit more to really understand and answer this question but here it goes.When religion and law were inseparable,when a women cheated on her husband, even if the husband had been missing for two years,she had to be punished by law, by having to wear a big red "A" on her dress.In the book, Hester does wear the letter "A" on her dress, meaning "adultery". So scarlet letter, that's what the book talks about.
4.Which character in the book was your favorite and why?
Hester of course, even thought she comitted…...

Management theories are implemented to help increase organizational productivity and service quality. Not many managers use a singular theory or concept when implementing strategies in the workplace: They commonly use a combination of a number of theories, depending on the workplace, purpose and workforce. Classical Management As shown in the figure below there are three classical management approaches: (1) scientific management, (2) administrative principles, and (3) bureaucratic organization. Scientific Management Scientific approach was found in 1911 by Frederic W. Taylor and includes four guiding action principles. 1. Develop for every job a “science” that includes rules of motion, standardized work implements, and proper working conditions. 2. Carefully select workers with the right abilities for the job. 3.

David Trobisch and David Parker on the Origin of the New Testament the Historical Jesus, and How Manuscripts Can Reveal What Texts Conceal

...David Trobisch and David Parker on the Origin of the New Testament, the Historical Jesus, and How Manuscripts Can Reveal What Texts Conceal Tom Dykstra I grew up with a picture of Paul traveling through Asia and Europe, founding congregations, counseling and teaching the men and women who had given their life to Jesus. If he could not visit them, he sent letters. When Paul died, his letters were kept as treasures. Each church that had received one of his letters saved it, had it read during worship services, and exchanged copies of the letter with other congregations close by. Later the congregations tried to complete their collection. But this view does not match the uniformity of manuscript evidence. --David Trobisch 1 It is even more remarkable that attempts to reconstruct the supposed document 'Q' (the lost collection used by both Matthew and Luke postulated by those who argue that Matthew and Luke are independent) use text-critical terminology to describe their activities. However, since all they are doing is making selections from a twentieth-century printed text, which does not even presume to provide confidently the text of the four-Gospel collection, never mind that of the independent first-century texts, this use of language must be dismissed as illusory. --David Parker 2 Modern scholarship has produced detailed biographies of Paul, massive multi-volume inquiries into “the historical Jesus,” and mountains of exegetical literature that claims to extract the......

What the Water Reveals

...everyone in the United States will always remember. During the Hurricane there was so much water that was produced that the levees around New Orleans could not withstand the pressure and the levees broke. Was it Hurricane Katrina that caused all the damage in New Orleans or was it the fact that the levees could not hold all the water, thus making the levees brake. Jim Wallis shed light to the truth that most Americans were not aware, and the media did not cover. Hurricane Katrina did not only destroy homes, businesses it also destroyed lives of thousands of people who lived in New Orleans. The essay reflects on our society's reluctance to admit how poverty and race correlates to our American society. (Lamm & Everett, 2007) Jim Wallis reveals the ethos argument by using his background as a veteran of the Civil War rights antiwar movements of 1960s and his years of experience in fighting for social justice..He uses his knowledge as a civil rights supporter to make several points about poverty in the United States. He gains the respect of his audience by expressing the importance of poverty in the United States and his passion for wanting to help the millions stricken by poverty in the United States. The way he approaches the topic of poverty with all the information he knows about the topic the audience believes he knows what he is writing about. When he states “The poor have been near the bottom of our priority list, if they on the list at all.” (Lamm & Everett, 2007) This......

Owen’s Poems Reveal Tenderness and Compassion

...Owen’s poems reveal tenderness and compassion towards those whose lives have been destroyed by the war. Discuss. Owen, in his war poetry reveals the awful reality of war and its effect on the young men involved. Given that these men are suffering in treacherous conditions, Owen expresses empathy towards the wretched soldiers who are fighting in a battle which they have little hope of surviving. Owen discloses his sympathy towards these young men by revealing the harsh conditions they live in and exposing their suffering both physical and mental. He exposes the reality of the war in an attempt to reveal the lives shattered to the unknowing public who do not know the true war conditions. Owen at times shows the brutal reality of the war without showing any sympathy for their pain. The personal misery and suffering of the soldiers in “Dulce et Decorum Est” is made vivid through powerful metaphors. They are “drunk with fatigue” indicating that because of sheer exhaustion they are unsteady on their feet. The young are not seen as unified in an impeccably dressed troop of men, instead, they are now viewed as “beggars under sacks.” They are portrayed as old sick women: “coughing like hags.” Further, here is no dignity in death, the copses of the soldiers are “flung in[to a wagon].” They are likened to animals and are the fodder of war. Owen has described the stark reality of the moral of the men and the inhumanity of their treatment even in death. They are the victims of war and......

Magic Trick Reveals Gaze Direction and Attention Aren’t Always Linked.

...Magic trick reveals Gaze Direction and Attention aren’t always linked. Psychologist Gustav Khun focuses particularly on the attention and awareness of the human mind, especially how attention and eye movements are influenced by social factors. Kuhn and his colleagues created a laboratory style experiment, where they played a clip of a short magic trick to some university students, (who were gathered together through a volunteer sampling method request), in which the magician appears to make a cigarette and lighter disappear. The cigarette "disappears" when the magician drops it into his lap while directing the audience's attention to his other hand. Recordings that were taken of the students' eye movements showed that whether or not they spotted the cigarette drop, and therefore realised how the trick was done, had nothing to do with their eye position at the moment of the drop. In contrast to this, the students' eye position after the cigarette drop was associated with whether they saw it. Specifically, those students who, after the drop, moved their eyes more quickly to the now empty cigarette hand were more likely to report having seen the cigarette fall. The likely explanation is that those students who, post drop, made the faster glance to the cigarette hand had already shifted their attentional spotlight (The experience of ‘looking out of the corner of the eye’, but not yet focussing with their actual eyes) to the cigarette, in time to see it drop. This would be...

What Do Kume Kunitake’s Observations of the West During His Travels with the Iwakura Embassy Reveal About Japan in the 1870s?

...WHAT DO KUME KUNITAKE’S OBSERVATIONS OF THE WEST DURING HIS TRAVELS WITH THE IWAKURA EMBASSY REVEAL ABOUT JAPAN IN THE 1870S? In December 1871 the prominent Japanese minister Iwakura Tomomi led almost half of the new Meiji government (“the government”) on an embassy around the Western world. Travelling with the ‘Iwakura Embassy’ was Kume Kunitake, a Neo-Confucian scholar and historian. Employed as both Iwakura’s personal secretary and the Embassy’s recorder, Kume along with his assistant Sugiura Kozo (later Hatakeyama Yoshinari) were instructed to record what the Embassy witnessed in the West. The record they produced was to form the basis for Kume’s ‘True Account’ (‘Jikki’) of the Embassy’s ‘Journey of Observations’ (‘Kairan’). Clearly set aside from the Jikki’s narrative in indented sections are Kume’s ‘personal views and observations’ (“Kume’s observations”). Yet these are much more than mere observations. Indeed, before Kume could publish his work he required the approval of Iwakura. While this presumably encouraged Kume to toe the government line, it also gave Iwakura considerable influence over Kume. Considering that the Jikki was revised over ten times before it was approved, it seems that Iwakura fully exercised this influence. Indeed, as Kume’s observations often appear to digress from the main narrative it suggests that they were imposed into Jikki at a late stage of compilation, presumably during these revisions. This suggests that these observations were......

What Does This Contract Reveal to You About the Nature of Sharecropping? Was This System a Good One for Both the Sharecropper and the Landowner?

...What does this contract reveal to you about the nature of sharecropping? Was this system a good one for both the sharecropper and the landowner?  Explain.  I believe what the contract reveals about the nature of sharecropping is that it was set up to set the “freed” African American for failure and to put them in such debit that they basically became slaves to the landowner once again. The landowner has left a lot of responsibility to the sharecropper obviously I think a good example of this in this contract is that the landowner has agreed to provide the team but the sharecropper has to feed the team Saturday nights, and every other day morning night a day and if he fails to provide the meal he will then owe the landowner 5 cents, which was a lot of money at the time especially for a poor sharecropper. He also has to pay for his half of the manure which the landowner designates as enough of the crops. This system is so beneficial to the landowner but only allows the sharecropper enough to thrive to live. I don’t believe this system was good for both the sharecropper and the landowner. I believe as earlier stated it was one sided to the landowner. The sharecropper had a lot of responsibility while all the landowner did was provided the land and horses for the sharecropper and then reaped all the benefit finically. He got a low cost of labor and once the debit piled up from the landowners harsh expectations basically free labor out of this. This landowner even went as......

Study Reveals

...STUDY reveals 20 million internet subscribers by 2020 A study reveals that, given the right conditions for growth, Bangladesh could have nearly 20 million Internet subscribers by 2020. The study titled “Towards a Connected Bangladesh: Socio-economic Impact of Internet in Bangladesh Economy,” was released with a press conference organized on the sidelines on the last day of the on-going GSMA Conference on Thursday, 21 January 2010. According to the findings of the report, “with the appropriate initiatives and policy frameworks in place, analysis suggest 18.3 million Internet subscribers in Bangladesh by 2020, equaling approximately 10 subscribers per 100 inhabitants.” These figures translate to a household internet penetration level of 32%, and business adoption of around 66%. Internet penetration has become a major indicator of social/economic development as countries are using Internet to participate in the international economy and to exploit emerging technologies for the betterment of citizens’ life, modernizing both institutions and markets. The internet study was conducted by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) on behalf of the Telenor Group, the majority shareholder of Bangladesh mobile operator Grameenphone. The BCG report was part of an in-depth research into the adoption rate of Internet and its impact in the emerging economies with special focus on Bangladesh, Thailand and Serbia. Currently about 5 million people in Bangladesh use Internet services offered by......
