The One Against the Many
---- Jane Eyre, a woman who resisted her times

It is a sustaining social problem that the statues of women has remained to be lower than that of men. Although in the late 20th century feminist movements have begun to overspread in some countries, it is hard to change the fact that throughout history, women do not receive as much rights as men do, say nothing of the Victorian times. However, in such an era, there was an outstanding woman who betrayed the times she lived in ----Jane Eyre. All through her life, Jane has been fighting. She fought against her aunt and cousin when she was a little girl; she fought for true love and equality in the face of Mr. Rochester; and she fought to survive on her own as an independent individual. Unlike most of the so-called “ideal” woman of the Victorian era, she is a woman with conceptions of adamancy, equality and liberty, which were not features that a woman was supposed to have.
Adamancy
Childhood experiences as an orphan living under other’s roof had affected Jane a lot. It was at Gateshead that Jane learnt to hit back. It can be found at the very beginning of the novel that Jane Eyre had a soul of strong resistance. She fought back when John, who was much older and stronger, scolded her and hit her. She never gave in even when facing with her aunt Mrs. Reed. After Jane saw Helen was punished unfairly, she said “I must dislike those who, whatever I do to please them, persist in disliking me; I must resist those who punish me unjustly. It is as natural as that I should love those who show me affection, or submit to punishment when I feel it is deserved.” These words show us a rebellious and firm girl who never yielded to the arbitrariness in the world. Jane Eyre was such an adamancy girl. Unlike most Victorian women who clung to their families, she dared to say no to people around her. She…...

1. After Exploring the Sociological Literature on Death and Dying, Explore and Argue for or Against One of the Following Statements: B. Death and Dying Are Subjected to and Defined by the Clinical Gaze.

...1. After exploring the sociological literature on death and dying, explore and argue for or against one of the following statements: b. Death and dying are subjected to and defined by the clinical gaze. Euphemism and grandiloquence are core mechanisms employed in the theoretical and authoritative discourses surrounding the issues and definitions of death, as seen with the propositions put forward by the British Medical Association (BMA 2003). The BMA’s ideas allude to a suggestion that death could be redefined and that ‘Elective Ventilation’ (a prohibited medical procedure on the outer frontiers of legality and morality) might become a ‘new’ status of the dead and dying. Other articles take this presumption further, by questioning whether as individuals, society should legally be bound to ‘opt out’ rather than ‘opt in’ of this innovative condition; meaning if our bodies befall fatal injuries there is a presumption that they instantly become the assets of the medical institution (Wilkinson 2012). An alternative belief is being presented, that our ethical and moral concerns should lay with the future recipient of our assumedly ‘redundant’ organs. Already some European states such as Wales are considering backing such a proposal (Wales News 2012). Actively delaying death or maintaining a body to increase organ donation is illegal as the interests of the patient are not paramount. Is the idea of Elective ventilation the ultimate scenario in defining death through a......

One Censor Too Many

...from something like a high school curriculum. For Example, Ken Kesey’s One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest should not be censored in high school curriculums. Critics argue that One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest should be censored because it encourages acts of violence. One of the main characters, McMurphy, is known for “fight[ing] too much” (Kesey 19) which shows on his knuckles that are “covered with scars and cuts, old and new” (Kesey 28). The cuts are proof of his violent nature which doesn’t change throughout the novel. Another cause for concern is when McMurphy shatters the nurses window for the third time, pins down Big Nurse, rips her blouse open, and pries his “heavy red fingers [into] the white flesh of her throat as if they were her neck bones” (Kesey 268). This almost kills Big Nurse and is a very violent act that critics don’t want children to imitate. However, the notion that reading about violent acts will make students want to commit violent acts is a faulty analytical assumption. McMurphy doesn’t attack Big Nurse simply to be violent; it was the other patients’ “need that was making him push himself slowly up from sitting” (Kesey 268) to commit the crime. McMurphy, a stable minded man in a mental institution, put himself on the line to help the other patients who were being manipulated by Big Nurse and her regime. Critics also argue that the novel is too sexual for a high school curriculum. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is riddled with sexual innuendo. As......

With and Against the Grain

...Brian Kopp 10/8/08 Expository Writing Shelby Brenn With and Against the Grain In Robert Jensen’s “Being Colorblind Does Not Offset Innate Advantages of White Privilege,” he says that despite “progression” of anti-racism in America, our society is still racist. He states that the very method, “colorblindness,” is racist. He argues that being colorblind is a privilege only whites can have. He states that whites are privileged because they do not have to worry about how they are judged by the people they encounter. Jensen explains more in depth this statement by showing how racism affects non-white people, but not white people. Jensen does, however, propose a solution. He suggests that instead of de-racing people, Americans need to acknowledge differences in cultures, and also understand the obstacles different people face due to racial and social norms. Jensen makes his final claim that despite the perception of America as being a level playing field, non-whites are still constrained by social barriers. With the Grain For most of my life, I have lived in places with little diversity. I grew up in a small town called Smithville, which had very little diversity. There were only one or two black families who lived in Smithville. There were even less Asian and Hispanic families there. The vast majority of people were white. All the teachers in my elementary school and high school were white. I did not encounter much diversity in Smithville, but the lack of......

Many Many Sops

...Here is a collection of lots of sops of lots of seniors. Browse. According to whacko. (Addressed to our batch) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As for SOPs, don't worry too much. All of you have good writing skills. Anyway, my advice on this matter is: [1] Have a look at some SOPs *now* or early next SEM. [2] When it's time to write your own SOP, do it *fully* by yourself. Do not look at anybody else's SOP. [3] Having made version 1.0 of your SOP, *now* take a look at as many SOPs as you can of guys in your area. Borrow points from then which you think are good. [4] Your SOP does not have to be too big. We at IITB tend to write long SOPs (1.5 to 2 pages) whereas IITM guys (who get better schools!)Usually write 0.75 page (max. 1 page). Basically, their SOPs are much more direct and to-the-point than ours. [5] REMEMBER THAT A SOP *MUST* BE ORIGINAL.

Many Faiths, One Purpose

...In the article “Many Faiths, One Purpose,” published by the Boston Globe on Monday, September 12, 2011, the author is discussing an interfaith service which was held on September 11, 2011 in Wayland, Massachusetts. The main idea of this article illustrates how people of different faiths gathered at a Muslim mosque on the ten-year anniversary of the terror attacks to show unity as a community, rather than division by their religions. One point the article made is in the days following the terrorist attacks of 10 years ago, many citizens of the American Muslim community were subjected to suspicion and hostility by the non-Muslim community. Insofar as many Americans placed blame for the attacks on all Muslims, there were still many Americans who did not. In this Massachusetts community, members of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths gathered as one body, sharing a unified belief: that we can live in peace, can hope that justice will be granted to all, and that we will show compassion for each other. ¬¬¬¬The second point made by the article is that those who gathered at the mosque reflected on those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The victims of the terrorist attacks were of all faiths, one of whom belonged to the hosting mosque itself. The prayerful within the welcoming hall shared messages of inspiration, visions of tolerance and acceptance, and a unified body of faithful believers. I chose this article for Journal I as I am encouraged by reading......

...difficult situation in life. And I am going to explain my going to explain my life changing experience. Nowadays, skiing is one of the most popular winter sports. In Wisconsin, people have such great opportunities to ski, especially at famous Wilmot Mountain. Many people enjoy skiing because it is challenging and it gives them a sense of excitement and freedom. When I came in Chicago few months ago I went to ski trips with my friends was a very important part of my life because it was exciting, it gave me a lot of confidence and it helped me to develop confidence. I was so ecstatic when I heard that we would be going on a ski trip in next week. I had never been to any ski mountain nor had I ever seen any before. I went to a sports equipment store almost immediately and bought skies, boots, poles and a whole outfit. I was very excited about the trip and wished it could come earlier. It was a very long night the day before my ski trip. I was checking over and over again to see if everything was in the right place because I wanted to be well prepared for this trip. Finally, we left for the place as place is located at 60 miles from my house and .The car took almost one and half hour to get us to Wilmot Mountain. Once we got there I just get out of the car and look around the place and I see too many people was skiing and I surprise when I see 5 years old kids skie very well but this is even scary too because they rolling over the......

Implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998 Has Impacted Upon Many Areas of Tort Law. Choose One of These Areas and Assess the Act’s Impact. 

...Implementation of the Human Rights Act 1998 has impacted upon many areas of tort law. Choose one of these areas and assess the Act’s impact.  Traditionally, up to the Human Rights Act 1998 (HRA) for the Convention and the all the individuals living in the United Kingdom had no domestic law.This resulted them to go to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in order for them to correct the breach of their Convention rights. Thus the domestic law needs to respect the settlement that has been made by the European Court. Surprisingly, the relationship between the Human Right issues and within Tort Liabilities, there is no exact proof that the domestic court has carried out these issues. In the case Reynolds v Times Newspaper Ltd [1999], the plaintiff, a well known public figure in Ireland, began for deformation against the Defendant. This was surrounded with the issue regarding an article being published by the Sunday Times. The article was based on Mr Reynolds  that he had hidden important information about his colleague, Mr Whelenhan’s in order for him to become president of the High Court. The main issue that needs to be considered in this case, is whether the courts should identify if it is countable of holding the announcement by a newspaper of political matters. The House of Lords identified that the media’s announcement can be safe by these situation, providing a test of public right. This considers the freedom of expression under the Article 10.

Against "Against Utilitarianism

...Against “Against Utilitarianism” Utilitarianism, a form of consequentialism, is one of the most notable and influential moral theories. The basic concept behind utilitarianism is that the morality of an action is based solely on the consequences it produces. People possessing utilitarian views believe that a person’s actions should be chosen to maximize utility for the greater good of all people. In the article “Against Utilitarianism,” British philosopher Bernard Williams aims to discredit the validity of the utilitarian argument. He supports his argument through examples of moral dilemmas and working definitions of utilitarian terms. Although Williams presents a compelling case against utilitarianism, such a prominent theory in philosophy cannot be reproached so quickly. Utilitarianism enhances overall happiness and utility without disparaging individual integrity. The concepts making up utilitarianism are extensive, however two of the most fundamental concepts include negative responsibility and integrity. Negative responsibility is the belief that a person is as responsible for the consequences of an action that they failed to prevent as they are for the actions they carry out. The idea of negative responsibility is directly related to utilitarianism because it deals with the concept that a person is responsible for consequences brought about by their being. This includes a person’s lack of action which, in itself, is considered an action to a utilitarian. Based on......

...Interdependence and Conflict: An Introduction Edward D. Mansfield and Brian M. Pollins Over the past few decades, there has been a surge of interest in the relationship between economic interdependence and political con›ict. One view that has gained considerable popularity and empirical support is that heightened interdependence fosters cooperative political relations. Voiced with increasing regularity in both academic and policy circles, this claim has been used to help justify the formation of the European Economic Community, Richard Nixon’s opening to China, Willy Brandt’s Ostpolitik, and Henry Kissinger’s conception of détente with the Soviet Union. Nonetheless, critics of this argument have not been stilled. Some observers maintain that, rather than fostering cooperation, increased interdependence generates political discord. Even more widespread is the argument that economic exchange has no strong bearing on the high politics of national security. This debate is hardly new. For centuries, the nature and strength of the links between interdependence and con›ict have been the subject of heated disagreement. Until lately, however, these links remained the subject of remarkably little systematic scrutiny. In recent years, a growing number of studies have attempted to ‹ll this gap in the literature, but they have yet to resolve various crucial questions. Most important, how and to what extent does interdependence in›uence political antagonism? What are the......

...Methods that use the polymerase chain reaction to detect the parasite's DNA have been developed, but are not widely used in areas where malaria is common due to their cost and complexity.[3] The risk of disease can be reduced by preventing mosquito bites by using mosquito nets and insect repellents, or with mosquito-control measures such as spraying insecticides and draining standing water.[2] Several medications are available to prevent malaria in travellers to areas where the disease is common. Occasional doses of the medication sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine are recommended in infants and after the first trimester of pregnancy in areas with high rates of malaria. Despite a need, no effective vaccine exists, although efforts to develop one are ongoing.[1] The recommended treatment for malaria is a combination of antimalarial medications that includes an artemisinin.[1][2] The second medication may be either mefloquine, lumefantrine, or sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine.[4] Quinine along with doxycycline may be used if an artemisinin is not available.[4] It is recommended that in areas where the disease is common, malaria is confirmed if possible before treatment is started due to concerns of increasing drug resistance. Resistance among the parasites has developed to several antimalarial medications; for example, chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum has spread to most malarial areas, and resistance to artemisinin has become a problem in some parts of Southeast......

...I am against at early marriage because at very young age early marriage can destroy our lives and it gives us big responsibility and many problems. Responsibility has to be shouldered at a very young age. One has to take on household responsibilities, child rearing responsibility. There is no adult to guide or help out. Missing out on the fun of teenage life and being young. The hard of married life can get to you. They deprive you of your youth. Health also can get affected as early pregnancy can have a negative impact on overall health. Breakdown of marriage is possible. Often the young couple is immature to shoulder major responsibility and end up fighting with each other. Adjustment problems may arise. Education also gets affected. The young couple may not be able to pursue higher education as they have to take on the responsibilities of family budget. Work opportunities are limited for the youngsters. Since their education levels are low, they cannot get highly paid jobs. Bringing up children may be difficult. Their knowledge of child care may be limited and parental guidance is also not there. They may not be able to provide the appropriate care for their child. When your young your not yet mature, and haven't had the chance to live life, and at a young age, you haven't always finished school or secured a good job, your not financially ready and this causes many young marriages to end prematurely. At a young age, you really don't know what u want from life until your......

Discuss the strategies that Mountain Bank should implement to achieve a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Mountain Bank should implement a variety of different strategies to achieve competitive advantage in the market place. Mountain Bank is active in many different business lines within the northwest United States. “Traditionally, Mountain Bank has had a strong presence in the retail banking line, with only a limited present in the other lines” (Stewart, G., & Brown, K. (2008). Human resource management: 2010 custom edition (1st ed.). Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons.p.69, para.2). The company also about 50 percent of retail accounts, 25 percent of consumer lending accounts, 10 percent of real estate and mortgage banking, and less than 5 percent of corporate banking within the area (p.69, para.2). With this company owning at least half of the retail accounts in comparison to their competition, there is an evident reason that majority of the neighborhood chooses to use this bank for this specific resource. It would be in the best interest of Mountain Bank to use the corporate level strategy to emphasize the great products it offers while reminding......
