The International Literature and Culture Exhibition
0 The Ministry of Culture organised a two-day exhibition of International Literature and Culture. The government sponsored this idea to promote international knowledge and understanding. Three societies focused on researching and collecting examples of world culture and literature with particular reference to traditional folktales. The chosen countries were India, China and Indonesia. The three societies had to research information about the designated country (climate, geography, history and traditions), prepare an exhibition booth and give an oral presentation about it. 0 The event or the three exhibitions took place at the University of Balamand. One of the three societies that participated was called ‘’A Journey to India’’. The team members talked about the food (Biryani, Muruku, Chekkalu), geography, religions and traditions. The second society was called ‘’The Chinese Cultural Society’’. They mentioned China’s climate, history and festivals (Dragon festival). The last society was ‘’The Heritage Society of Indonesia’’. They talked about Indonesia’s national language which is Banasa. They also said that Indonesia is an Island stretching along the equator in South East Asia. 0 Secondly, the three societies were invited to participate in the popular event by exhibiting a three dimensional display. The display of ‘’A journey to India’’ was clear and simple. For instance, there were few items. The colors of the display helped to set moods. They put Indian music as a background to the exhibition. The display of the “The Chinese Cultural Society’’ was attractive and well-organised. For example, each topic…...

Commerical Essay

...Commercial Essay Assignment As consumers in our society, many of us are almost immune to the constant barrage of assorted advertisements bombarding us via billboards, television, radio, the Internet, email, and snail mail. Some of these ads are trivial--which cola to drink or which deodorant to use. Some deal with important issues like feeding the hungry or preservation of the rain forests. Although we're exposed to all types of ads daily, we have effectively trained ourselves to filter them out. Who doesn't grab the remote when the television commercial comes on? However, as annoying as they may be, all these ads speak volumes about the nature of our society. Although this situation is the "norm" for us, have you ever thought about how confusing all these different advertisements might be for beings from another planet? Are deodorant soaps or dandruff shampoos as important as feeding starving children? What effect might such ads have on their opinions about our society? Would visitors from outer space have a positive or negative overall image of us from the ads? For this assignment, you'll need to spend 2 hours watching television, but you’re ONLY going to watch the commercials! First, record which channel you're watching. Pick the local affiliate of one of the major television stations only: CBS, NBC, or ABC. If you live in Odessa or Midland, you can watch KOSA, KMID, or KWES. No cable or PBS stations. Then spend two hours watching commercials: Keep......

...two other managers, as well as some of his market research interns to both do research and to type the book while they're at work. Because they are often busy doing his book, people from the other departments are finding they can't get their work-related business done. The secretary and interns feel they have to do what Daryl says because he is their direct supervisor. You are Daryl's peer in another department and you also have outside work you need to have typed. You're annoyed at Daryl's actions, but would rather not inform your boss (who is also Daryl's boss) about what's going on because you want to maintain a friendly working relationship with Daryl. Besides, you never know how the boss is going to react. Sometimes you begin to think that if Daryl can get away with using company equipment, personnel, and time for his personal projects why can't you? Discuss what you believe are the ethical issues in this situation, and determine how you would handle this situation. Answer these two questions in an essay format in at least 250-500 words: Identify what you consider to be potentially unethical. Why do you think it is not ethical? Using the three ethics check questions on pages 93-94 of the Understanding Business text, describe how you would handle this situation....

Sire defines a worldview as . . . “a commitment, a fundamental orientation of the heart, that can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions (assumptions which may be true, partially true or entirely false) that we hold (consciously or subconsciously, consistently or inconsistently) about the basic constitution of reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and move and have our being.” Stated more succinctly, “ . . . a worldview is simply the total set of beliefs that a person has about the biggest questions in life.” F.

Fullbright Essay

...The Fulbright Essays Two essays are required: The Personal Statement and the Study/Research Proposal. These essays serve very different but complementary purposes. Unless noted, the following information comes straight from the Fulbright Web site. THE PERSONAL STATEMENT (1 Page) The following information is applicable to both Study/Research and ETA applicants: The Personal Statement should be a narrative giving a picture of you as an individual.  Remember, applicants are not interviewed on the national level. The Personal Statement is your opportunity to “talk” about yourself and to tell the committee more about how you came to this point in your life and where you see yourself in the future.  There is no single “right way” to approach the Statement; rather candidates will consider what they think is important for people reviewing the application to know about them. The Statement can deal with your personal history, family background, influences on your intellectual development, the educational and cultural opportunities (or lack of them) to which you have been exposed, and the ways in which these experiences have affected you.  Also, you may include your special interests and abilities, career plans, and life goals, etc. It should not be a recording of facts already listed on the application or an elaboration of your Statement of Grant Purpose.   It is more of an autobiography, and specifically related to you and your aspirations.

Who am I? Where am I? How can I tell right from wrong? Is there life after death? What should I and what can I do about guilt? How can I deal with my inner pain?" Life's biggest, inescapable questions relate to whether there is a God, human origins, identity, purpose, and the hereafter, just to mention a few. Satisfying answers to the "inescapable questions of life" are provided by the Holy Scriptures. The Holy Scriptures, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, form the starting point and foundation for the biblical worldview. More specifically related to our......

Reflection Essay

...When I was first told to find a topic for my academic research essay, I was perplexed since there were a large number of topics to consider. At first, I decided to think about global warming which had always been a popular topic. However, without much academic background on it, I found it quite difficult for me to write. Therefore, I made a decision to search for something in sociology, in which I’ve been always interested. Suddenly, a hotly debated issue came into my mind: Should death penalty be abolished in China? Then I determined to take a look at this. To begin with, I typed in “death penalty” on Google and a plenty of results appeared. Unfortunately there was too much information to read, so I tried to look for “death penalty” under One Search which is a web page of PolyU’s library at http://onesearch.lib.polyu.edu.hk. Also, all kinds of materials including videos and books, which I do not require, were displayed, so I returned to the search bar and clicked on Articles to narrow down the range and searched again. All articles related to death penalty were shown on the screen. I clicked on the first article which was released in 2014. Nevertheless, this article was not really good as it was filled with personal opinions. As a result, I had to go back to the former page. I noticed an article marked with Peer Reviewed Journal, so I clicked on it. After reading, I found that it was indeed a suitable essay with good structure. Then, when I tried to save that one as my...

...A Guide to Writing the Literary Analysis Essay I. INTRODUCTION: the first paragraph in your essay. It begins creatively in order to catch your reader’s interest, provides essential background about the literary work, and prepares the reader for your major thesis. The introduction must include the author and title of the work as well as an explanation of the theme to be discussed. Other essential background may include setting, an introduction of main characters, etc. The major thesis goes in this paragraph usually at the end. Because the major thesis sometimes sounds tacked on, make special attempts to link it to the sentence that precedes it by building on a key word or idea. A) Creative Opening/Hook: the beginning sentences of the introduction that catch the reader’s interest. Ways of beginning creatively include the following: 1) A startling fact or bit of information  Example: Nearly two hundred citizens were arrested as witches during the Salem witch scare of 1692. Eventually nineteen were hanged, and another was pressed to death (Marks 65). 2) A snatch of dialogue between two characters  Example: “It is another thing. You [Frederic Henry] cannot know about it unless you have it.” “ Well,” I said. “If I ever get it I will tell you [priest].” (Hemingway 72). With these words, the priest in Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms sends the hero, Frederic, in search of the ambiguous “it” in his life. 3) A meaningful quotation (from the book you are......

Assesment Essay

...Assessment Essay William Raspberry is from a small segregated town in Mississippi, he left this small town to take a job as a reporter. I do believe that his home town plays a big factor in how he feels about the black Americans being referred to as “black”. He has some really great points of view on the subject and how it affects the black children. There are certain images that come to mind when a person refers to a person as black. As I reflect on the article “The Handicap of Definition”, I am reminded of the town where I grew up, it was a small hick town but over half the population was black Americans. There are several statements made in this article that would make any person rethink calling a person “black” and in this paper I will discuss the most important ones to me. The first statement discusses how “black Americans carry one of the heaviest burden and even black children in particular, have to bare the question what it is meant to be black”. (Raspberry, 1982). A part of me agrees with this statement but another part of me feels that black Americans use this burden as a crutch. People make what they want to make out of their lives, if they want to us it as a crutch not to succeed then they will never succeed. It is all about a person’s desire to be an achiever. On the other hand I do feel that many times a person is labeled by their race. If this is the case the person might have to work harder to prove that they are not to be stereo typed. Where I......
