Gericaults Raftas Legacy In Art And Politics - 1,011 words
Theodore Gericault's greatest legacy as an artist is undoubtedly his Raft of the Medusa, completed in 1819. The painting is the comprehensive result of experiments with a variety of forms and styles; it marks the apogee of Gericault's career. Beautiful and horrible, incidental and ubiquitous, monumental without a specific hero, The Raft of the Medusa was to the Salon of 1819 a complete paradox. The painting's first critics were divided in their assessments by their political and artistic ideologies. Some critics at the painting's initial exposition desired a picture more blatant in social criticism while others felt that the painting derided the very patriotism they felt needed protection. A ...

... y requirements of its growing brain continues to devote roughly 70% of its growth potential to increasing this fat deposit, reaching peak adiposity of around 25% of its body mass by the age of nine months. These facts would not be predicted. either as part of the inheritance from early arboreal ancestors nor as adaptations to a life on the plains of Africa. One suggested explanation stressed the need of storing energy against possible food shortages, as in hibernating mammals. But the fat in humans is not seasonal, and it is hard to see why natural selection in the hominids would have given priority to food storage in a savanna habitat where speed seems to have been the prime requiremen ...

Influence Of Alcohol And Drug Addiction On Political Socialization In America - 1,151 words
... his or her family members, become far to overwhelming to allow enough freedom for the individual to focus on issues outside ones own personal life. These issues alone can take up to a lifetime resurrecting and rebuilding, and any peer-involvement is sure to be, and best, invested in these areas. Let alone to say that a small portion (2 percent) of persons either afflicted or related to the addict ever even begin this process, let alone complete it through its successful consummation into a broader expanse containing political socialization. Very few recovering people make it, even with the broad array of treatment available and the huge network of support that exists. Of those that do r ...

The Potential For A U.n. Peacekeeping Force In Kosovo - 2,082 words
I. Introduction The bombing of Kosovo by NATO forces may finally come to an end. While the excuses for bombing the troubled region have been challenged, for the most part the world concurs that the atrocities gong on in that nation warranted international action. In any event, the bombing did start and it continues, despite the accidental hits on pedestrian villages and buildings which were not targets in the first place. They have been explained away as unavoidable during such a mission. Casualties must be expected. While the mission continues, talks of peace are in the air and even Milosevic seems hopeful. Yet, he remains stubborn, unwilling to comply with mandates which would essentially ...

... munications. APEC members include not only the industrialized economies of Japan, Singapore, the United States, and Canada, but also countries with much greater gaps in their infrastructure, such as China, Thailand, and the Philippines. Gill: Promise or hype? Against this background, why all the hyperbole about electronic superhighways? Several themes recur in these information infrastructure initiatives. There are dual assumptions that converging technologies will result in information services with both social and economic benefits, and that both public and private sectors must be engaged to ensure the installation of national broadband networks. Yet these assumptions need to be carefu ...

The General Strike Of 1926 - 1,211 words
ter> Why did the General Strike of 1926 fail and what were the effects the strike had upon industrial relations in Britain? The General Strike of 1926 lasted only nine days and directly involved around 1.8 million workers. It was the short but ultimate outbreak of a much longer conflict in the mining industry, which lasted from the privatisation of the mines after the First World War until their renewed nationalisation after the Second. The roots of the General Strike in Britain, unlike in France or other continental countries, did not lie in ideological conceptions such as syndicalism but in the slowly changing character of trade union organisation and tactics. On the one hand, unskilled a ...

Daniel Pearl - 1,329 words
... that his newspaper is opinionated and holds a personal view. Which immediately throws out journalistic ethics as it is not an objective reading but more opinionated. Thus it is very crucial to understand, that Mindich infuses opinion with journalism rather than being objective like a daily paper. In the WBURs broadcast of The Connection, Steven begins to voice his opinion about the need for people to be reminded about the war. He strives, with his right to freedom of speech, to get people disturbed and aware about what kind of threat terrorism is. This immediately shows how journalism is not always a social and moral responsibility because it can be one-sided and biased. On the other han ...

Richard Iii: Devil, Beast Or Human? - 1,556 words
THE ESSAY QUESTION: Anne: No beast so fierce but knows some of pity. Richard: But I know none, and therefore am no beast. Anne: O wonderful, when devils tell the truth! To what extent is the character of Richard in Richard III presented as devil, beast or human? MY ESSAY: In Shakespeares presentation of the character of Richard III, we can clearly identify beastly, savage, [and] devilish qualities and characteristics. Indeed, Richard can be described as an amalgam of both the Vice and the Machiavel figures, traditional dramatic representations of evil and monstrosity. However, some critics disagree, instead arguing that Shakespeare introduces a psychological dimension to Richards character, ...

A History Of Avro Arrow In The Cold War - 1,258 words
... as been delayed or cancelled, but a closer examination shows that the decision is pretty consistent with the rest of the affair. Cold War paranoia was a very real thing, and unless a sensitive piece of technology could be thoroughly protected, it couldnt just be left lying around. While the Arrow was clearly an advanced project, it seemed to have been conspicuously bereft of any friends who would be willing to spend the necessary sums on its maintenance. Its name, it appears, was mud. The torturous tale of the Arrow is ultimately a story about men making decisions. With the hindsight of history, the observer is left with the distinct impression that many of these decisions were ill-infor ...

Arguments On Gun Control - 1,715 words
With the Second Amendment giving American citizens the right to bear arms, and approximately fifty percent of Americans owning some form of a firearm, issues involving the ownership and possession of guns have led to heated debates in American society. Most notably is the issue of gun control. Many feel that the some form of gun regulation is necessary in order to lower the level of gun related violence in the country. On the other hand, the opponents of gun control feel that it would be an infringement on their second amendment rights. The outcome and extent of gun control has strong political implications because it basically determines the present day meaning of the Second Amendment. Whil ...

Winston Churchill In World War Ii - 987 words

Indeed, Churchill was always will to send reinforcements. He truly believed that he would meet both Germany and Italy in the Middle East. Part of Churchills plan against Germany was to attack them peripherally, through its weakest link, Italy. Italy was very interested in taking over Libya.

World Capitalism And Third World Urbanization - 1,312 words
Urbanization has been a leading characteristic of the development of the Third World in the Twentieth Century. As developing countries entered the international economic stage, and as they industrialized, urban populations and areas began to increase and develop. Bryan Roberts' article, "Urbanization, Migration and Development" examines Third World urbanization, and explains how it relates to the new international economic order. Roberts discusses the Third World's experience with import substitution industrialization, and the new international division of labor, concluding that the newly interconnected world economy directly contributes to urbanization. It is important to have an understand ...

... it mean that the report is essentially objective. It is a complex task, which is in need of on-going and sophisticated refinement by the individual and the profession. Every policy choice represents a trade off among differing individuals preferences, and possibly among alternative consequences, regardless of whether the policy makers see it that way or not. In this sense, Accounting policy choices can never be neutral (Committee on Social Consequences, 1978, pg. 24). Users of information expect a high level or 'reliability and objectivity' in regards to these financial reports. Interestingly, accountants often see themselves as engaged in an objective, value-free, technical enterprise, ...

My Job At E-dak - 714 words
Coming to E-Dak, for me, meant leaving a comfortable 'big-six' accounting position to work for a 30-person start-up. It was a tremendous gamble, but my choice came down to whether I wanted to continue performing repetitive audits or face new challenges at E-Dak Dynamics, and in the process help to change the world. Working for E-Dak places me at the epicenter of one of the world's most dynamic industries: telecommunications/ networking. Although I knew little about E- Dak's domain of fiber-optics, I felt strongly that my fate rested in the trenches of Silicon Valley, in an industry where only the paranoid survive, at a company with a business model in defiance of Moore's Law. At the time the ...
