In her take for A literary works of Their Own, Showalter attempts to rediscover the lost Atlantis of womanish make-upfrom the archives of British literary fib, for which she tries to assemble womens piece of music of that completion into a linear organic evolutional process dividing it into three sorts depending upon their unique characteristics, that is, the Feminine, feminist and Fe anthropoid contour which thereby establishes the existence of a feminine usage in the history of literature. In this taste, I shall elaborate the three shapes as propounded by Showalter while critically evaluating the boundaries of these said categories. The latter half of this essay shall deal with the complexities of Showalters formation and classification of British women novelists literary genealogy.Showalter classifies the first stage of female literary history as the feminine phase referring to literature produced during the season blockage of 1840 to 1880.She proposes that w omen wrote during this flow rate of time as imitator of governing gray standards conforming to the nonions of high-brow literature and internalised masculine standard of art and their lieu on favorable roles, thereby developing an internalized feminine self-hatred. The suppress interpreted up by female authors through the use of male pseudonyms as seen in the case of the Bronte sisters, George Eliot, and so forth is a perfect poser of the constant rejection that women practised with regards to their masculine nature, while at the same succession signals a loss of innocence for women as they subtly grapple with the belief of role playing required by their gender.Certain areas of experience and familiarity such as sexuality, passion, ambition and male transcendence (as propounded in Simone De Beauvoirs theory) lied beyond the ambits of the Victorian angel in the house or the Perfect doll and therefore were suppressed by women in their piece of composing through practi ces of displacement (as seen in Lydias case in rob and Prejudice), splitting of self (as seen in Jane Eyre through the figures of Jane and Bertha) or even penalty (as seen in the character of Maggie in The Mill On The Floss) to uphold the thirst of womanliness in their writing. Therefore, it seemed that women novelists were compensating for their will to write by preaching complaisance and self-sacrifice, leaning at home and denouncing female self-assertiveness.However women did not but conform to the pattern of guilds concept of work for others and challenged the patriarchal reception of womens writing in their own subtle ways. Emily Bronte in her novel Wuthering Heights finds release to explore the fenced territories of dark passion, madness, ruth slight believe and its politics through the character of Heathcliff as he would be less scrutinised by male critics. This defend became a site of anxiety for women writers as the act of writing in itself represented the wis h to transcend the delimitate feminine boundaries of their society, and therefore reconstructed the semi governmental and public spheres for women. As Showalter states, the women writers of this time period often grappled with the question, where did obedience to her father and husband end and the responsibility of self-fulfilment became prevalent?Another vital aspect of this phase is the carving of dummy for womenin the literary circle as done by feminine writers for women to follow against the detestation and critiques they received from their male competitors and society at large. G. H. Lewes in his 1852 review The Lady Novelist proposed that womens literature had fallen short of their task owning to their natural impuissance of imitation. Many male critics called womens novel bland, didactic and senseless carry on not taking into direct the antagonism women received at the hold of male critics whenever they tried to transgress into the male domains of knowledge and lang uage of politics, power and desire. The damns in Jane Eyre or the dialect in Wuthering Heights or the slangs of Rhoda Broughtons heroine termed as vulgar, unholy and termed by Victorian readers as coarseness.On the one hand, this double bind that paralysed women writers made them feel humiliated by the condescension received from male critics making them obsess over the desire to avoid special treatment and achieve genuine excellence and on the other hand,it made them anxious about appearing unwomanly in their works too. Despite all such obstacles, women overcame the hurdles placed upon them by patriarchal conditioning of repression, concealment and self-censorship and participated in the literary process thereby creating a quadriceps femoris for their sex which was earlier not availed to them. The major division of the novelists of this phase to the female tradition to follow was the enabling of a cultural exchange that had a special eccentricl significance for women at l arge. succeeding(a) this comes the feminist phase spanning from 1880 to 1920 which comes to aculmination by-line the winning of the vote for women. This period was pronounced by protest and struggle for ones rights, oppositional equation that the female author developed with their male critics, advocacy of minority rights and values, including a request for autonomy and seems to stand in opposition to the earlier feminine phase as it defined by an ardent feminist masturbation. As against the casing of issues as practiced by earlier writers, women writers of the feminist period acknowledged their sexuality, passions and desire publically without any sense of patriarchal sin or shame. Since this period in addition overlaps with womens suffragette movement in Britain and America, they had excessively become policy-makingly assertive and this literally was translated into literature as the involution of the two sexes. The impetus provided to womens writing by such political acti vism can be seen in the works of Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Robins, etc.The influence of the political movement gave rise to the development of an array of new characters such as men who were effeminate fops by day and fearless heroes by iniquity. In contrast to earlier women writers who saw male characters as a means to escape patriarchal domination, not realising that they were exchanging one perform of irons for the other female writers of this period use male figure to progress their own emancipation and re-examine the stereotypes placed upon them by their patriarchal society as done by the Sensationalist women writers in their novels. An example of this would be Florence Marryats Loves Conflict where she holistically examines the exploitative throttle set for women by patriarchal societys conception of love.Such awakening resulted into a complete rejection of the notion of femininity and attacked the figure of the self-sacrificing woman in exchange for agency and self-expre ssion.Fidelity and chastity on mens part became a contested issue in the literature of this period and thereby reversed the question of female faithfulness to question male loyalty. The politics of pseudonym similarly changed during this period as Sarah Grand the persona taken up by Frances Elizabeth Bellenden McFall expressed a feminist pride. either these trends amalgamated into the creation of an Amazon Utopia which rejected all notions femininity in exchange for intense female solidarity derived from a complete rejection of the then schematic notion of womanhood and femininity.Another major contribution of the writers of this phase is the professionalism they introduced with regards to female constitution. Just as the transition from self-hatred to feminist withdrawal was an essential shift in the two phases, similarly equality in terms of monetary payments to women writers as against the disparate differences in terms of profits of male and female writers (a characteri stic of the previous phase) was challenged and overhauled which provided women writes of this period further incentive to take up writing as a profession earlier than an activity of leisure as practised by their predecessors.As Showalter argues, women by 1860s had started to retain their copyrights, work with printers on the commission basis and geld their own magazine. This did not lonesome(prenominal) offer women with an alternative space for securing financial support and fortifying independence from patriarchal commercialism but too provided them with themuch required artistic and ideological freedom to explore issues concerning their lives and experiences. Women by apprehensive over judgements of their day to day concerns actively participated into reviewing ideas of established Femininity and thereby providing the foundation for future women writers to develop and completely deconstruct the notion of gender and its attributes.This was followed by the last stage,that is, the female phase beginning in 1920 and act to the present, which according to Showalter from 1960 onwards has entered a new era of self-awareness. This phase is the to the lowest degree theorised and developed by her as it is moreover to meet a conclusion. The writers of this phase carry the dual cultural baggage of the history of female authorship in the form of feminine self-hatred and feminist withdrawal, yet have initiated the task of insistent self-exploration backed by rejection of male cultivation moving towards separationist literature focusing on inner space and psychological interrogation rather than being socially focused so as to escape the materialistic, harsh realities of the patriarchal world.The metaphor explored by galore(postnominal) female writers for this motif was the enclosed and secret room which extended the fantasies of inclosure in the form of secret rooms, hideaway attics and suffragette cells as represented in the works of Mrs Molesworths The Ta pestry Room or Virginia Woolfs A Room Of ones Own. The application of this female aestheticism by writers of that period transformed itself into the fragmentation of the self through a feminist cultural analysis of words, language and ideology in their novels.This self-destructive rite of womens aestheticism and receptivity leading to suicidal vulnerability is exemplified in the careers of Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath.Paradoxically, the furthering of female aestheticism also led to an apparent fringing from sexuality and its politics, where the site of the body wasveiled, disguised or denied for insistence of artistic freedom and autonomy, leading Showalter to state that even though womens writing was erotically charged and drenched with sexual symbolism, female aestheticism is nonetheless oddly sexless in its content. This leads to the popularization of the idea of androgyny in women literature of this period (Bloomsbury group being a major contributor to this ideology).Showalte rfurther develops this phase stating that the literature of the female phaseentered a new, dynamic stage in 1960 to incorporate and develop itself on Marxist, Feminist and psychoanalytical theories and therefore helped women to both deconstruct and reconstruct their identities while providing society with womens view of life, experience, originality and individuality as demanded by G. H. Lewis and J. S. Mill. Continuing with the conflicts of the feminist phase, novelists of this period continue to struggle with the binaries of art and love, between self-fulfilment and duty, but work by consolidating the gains of the past while working with a new draw of language and experience converting sexuality and anger (earlier treated only as attributes of realistic characters) into sources of female creative powers. In this light, women writers have tried to unify their fragmented experience through artistic vision which Showalter states will lastly leadthem to make a choice between as similation and separation into literary mainstream in the near future.The assembly of the lineage of women novelists as done by Showalter through the construction of the above mentioned three phases in her book has significantly contributed to the establishment of a Female Literary Tradition and has helped to unearth the vast expanse of womens literature, previously ignored. However, it appears to me that there are certain foundational impediments in her work. A major premise for her work remains the construction of womens literary history through the genre of novel writing alone(predicate) which thereby excludes the colossal mass of literature that women wrote in the forms of drama, poetry, diaries, social tracts, autobiographies, etc. To formulate any kind of literary history for womens writing without taking into account all these genres will necessarily provide us with a fractional and restrictive imagine thereby to a lower placemining the profundity and versatility of womens imagination, creativity and intellectual labour.To see novel writing as the only path through which women entered and created a space for themselves in literary matter is not just a reductionist interrogation of the history of writing but is also an injustice done to the massive proportion of women writers who were not fortunate enough to enter this particular field and instead worked ever to carve out a space for women in other genres as done by figures of Elizabeth Barrett Browning andAlice Meynell (poetess), Alice James (diarist), Hannah More (dramatist), Florence Nightingale and bloody shame Carpenter (social Tracts) etc. Similarly, many novelists also attempted other genres of writing and deflating their efforts outside novel writing is also playing into the patriarchal trap of reducing the toils of women writers to a singularly defined category for purposes of convenience.Similarly, Showalter in her book advances a certain dimension of universality into the category of 19th cytosine British women novelist, pedestrianizing her struggles and triumphs over many others. Though she mentions that her foundation for the historical re-evaluation of womens writing is the 19th century British novelist, her disregard for the categories of third world, post-colonial womens literature is apparent in her vocabulary. Within the foundation of her work, she fails to take into account the pivotal issue of class based Marxist evaluation of the development of womens writing movement.To not take into account the economic constraints under which women had to work to enter the field of literature will blemish the perspicacity and shared experience of a particular class of women writers and will also deter us from analysing their works as repositories of class strained social realism of that age.The absence of any class based differential paradigm for reviewing the works of British women novelists is an immense undercutting of the forces of patriarchy and capitalism a nd the role they play in obstructing womens path to literacy emancipation.Therefore, even though she challenges the notion of the legislation by re-evaluating the exclusion of women from its centre, Showalter nonetheless, never deconstructs the canon itself but works alone to readjust it to the requirements of a specific group of 21st century female British academician. Her stating that the sensation novelists of the late 19th century did not add significantly to the intellectual issues of that age but rather contributed to womens cause byacquiring public literary space exemplifies the same.Nonetheless, despite all such complexities, Showalters assertion of the value of the lost works of women writers and their role in history initiates a process of questioning and subverting of the patriarchal edifice of the history of literature. Feminine, Feminist and Female writers all had to contend with the cultural and political forces of their age and the epistemological classification of these three stages themselves reveals the developmental process that has taken place with regards to womens writing.The Female Tradition is a record of the conditions and struggle that women breathed through to gain agency andchoice for their sex. Therefore even though Showalter does not pursue the full scope of her questions, she nevertheless opens the opportunity for individuals following her to further her theory and critically analyse the homogenizing politics of literary history, from not just the perspective of gender but also from a class, wash and linguistic perspective. Here, Louise Bernikows comment becomes extremely crucial and exemplaryWhat is unremarkably called literary history is actually a record of choices. Which writers have survived their time and which have not depends upon who noticed them and chose to record the notice.BibliographyElaine Showalters A Literature of Their Own.

Compare the ways in which the authors present the main characters “Growing Up” and “Flight” as learning something new
The two stories argon very similar in many modal values. some(prenominal) are around learning new issues and the changing attitudes between the elderly and the young. Also the main learners in both stories are the older generation. In flight of stairs it is the Grandfather period in outflow it is Robert busy. Also in both stories the secondary learners are the younger generation jenny ass in Growing Up and the mother of the younger generations come out to yield already learned and accepted the lessons. However there is a slight departure I feel that in Flight it is more about pass judgment new concepts than about learning.In flight the first thing Quick enlightens is that his daughters have grown up, he realizes this due to their wishing of response to him and their lack of affection. This is how in lines 4 to 6 He had hoped indeed that they might, as lots before, been waiting at the corner of the road and in line 25 to 26 He shouted Hullo, hullo, children. There was no reply. And he stopped, in surprise. He delivers the children to be the like as they were when they were younger on the button they have changed. This is also shown from lines 34 to 49 where the children are very unresponsive towards their father, jenny ass answers by having peered at him through her hair and a slight joggle of her behind and Kate answers him only by faint, muffled Hullo.The Grandfather in Flight learns that his noble-mindeddaughter has grown up as well in lines 116 and in lines 119 to 122 what makes him realize this is their grown up seriousness. The author shows this by contrasting the grand father be shut-out by their grown up seriousness eon they are tumbling like puppies on the grass. This contrast shows that although they surface to be the same the grandfather has learnt that inside his granddaughter has changed. Mr. Quick also learns that his daughters send away be deleterious and learns non to have frigid expectations of them. He learns of the ir hurtful ness in lines 75 to 105 when the girls first torture shuttle and because begin to attack him. But he then learns not to have fixed expectations of them when shortly after that in lines 125 to 136 they then begin to take care of him and nurse his wounds. A similar thing happens in Flight when the granddaughter first taunts her grandfather in lines 47 to 51, precisely then later 103 to 105 bring him a present as a peace tallyering showing him not to have fixed expectations either. some(prenominal) the granddaughter in Flight and Jenny in Growing Up also learn something new by the end of the stories. The granddaughter realizes that her grandfather does not wish to spite her (as it seems in lines25 to 39) and is only trying to prevent her from get married because he truly loves her, and he does not wish her to be unhappy. The author has presented this at the very end of the play, so that it has a stay effect on the reader. Doris Lessing shows this not by any words but b y an action, namely when the grandfather releases the birds (which have been made to symbolize the granddaughter) free people in lines126 to 145, symbolizing setting his granddaughter free to do as she pleases.In turn she realizes this and reacts to it and is said to be having tears run shivering off her face showing the profound impact it has on her. Joyce Cary author of development up also shows Jennys new understanding at the end of the story. He leaves the reader with a sense of uncertainty concerning Jenny, unsure as to what exactly she is thinking, leaving it at she also was struck by something new and unthought. I believe that Jenny gained a new understanding of Quick, perhaps one of vulnerability. This is perhaps due to the fact that quick towards the end is shown as fearing his children. In lines 174 to 175 he is shown as unsure what to think of what Jenny was doing, which may be the base of her new understandingAnother law of similarity between the stories upon compariso n is the resemblance in the roles of the Daughter in Flight and Mrs. Quick in Growing Up. The authors of both stories show them as being superior and show them as already understanding what the other characters are yet to learn. In Growing Up when Mr. Quick tells Mrs. Quick about the events of the day which have shocked him she merely replies All you children- amusing her selves while we run the world. As if the events were perfectly normal and natural, because she already knows to expect it. The same is accepted for the Daughter in Flight she too shows that she understands both sides and knows what to expect when she converses with her father in lines 75 to 100 when she appears to have al the answers to the grandfathers questions.Both stories have a lot in common in the way the authors present the way in which the characters learn new things. This is especially true in terms of structure where the layout is close to identical. Though both stories seem to be about different themes they are very similar in comparison.
Chapter 10The n matchlesssuch and I had been watching a movie active Moses. Raziel was angry because in that location were no angels in it. No one in the movie numerateed akin any Egyptian I always met.Did Moses find like that? I asked Raziel, who was worrying the crust off of a ass cheese pizza in between spitting vitriol at the screen.No, tell Raziel, save that other fellow looks like Pharaoh.Re alone(prenominal)(prenominal)y?Yep, express Raziel. He slurped the last of a Coke finished a shuck making a rude racket, and therefore tossed the paper loving cup across the suck on into the wastebasket.So you were in that location, during the Exodus? sound in advance. I was in focus of locusts.How was that?Didnt care for it. I exigencyed the hassle of captures. I like frogs.I like frogs too.You wouldnt march on liked the plague of frogs. Stephan was in charge. A seraphim. He shook his head as if I should go to sleep almost no-count inside fact ab prohibited seraphim. We lost a lot of frogs.I suppose its for the stovepipe, though, Raziel give tongue to with a sigh. You cant project a someone who likes frogs exact a plague of frogs. If Id done it, it would bring on been more of a fond gathering of frogs.That wouldnt direct worked, I express.Well, it didnt work any focus, did it? I mean, Moses, a Jew, popular opinion it up. Frogs were aerifybl flip out to the Jews. To the Jews it was a plague. To the Egyptians it was like having a big feast of frog legs drop from the sky. Moses missed it on that one. Im effective glad we didnt listen to him on the plague of pork.Really, he involveed to bring down a plague of pork? Pigs falling from the sky?Pig pieces. Ribs, hams, feet. He wanted everything crosscurrenty. You know, unclean pork and unclean blood. The Egyptians would have eaten the pork. We talked him into incisively the blood.Are you consecrateing that Moses was a dimwit? I wasnt being ironic when I asked this, I was awa ke that I was asking the eternal dimwit of them all. StillNo, he amendful(prenominal) wasnt concerned with results, tell the angel. The lord had voicelessened Pharaohs heart against letting the Jews go. We could have dropped oxen from the sky and he wouldnt have changed his mind.That would have been something to see, I said.I suggested that it come down fire, the angel said.Howd that go?It was pretty. We precisely had it rain on the stone palaces and monu ments. Burning up all of the Jews would sort of defeated the purpose.Good thinking, I said.Well, Im advantageously with weather, said the angel.Yeah, I know, I said. Then I popular opinion astir(predicate)(predicate) it a instant, ab expose how Raziel well wore turn up our poor room service waiter Jesus delivering orders of ribs the day they were the special.You didnt suggest fire, initially, did you? You just suggested that it rain barbecued pork, didnt you?That twat doesnt look anything like Moses, the angel said. That day, thrashing in the sea, trying to swim to take care the merchant embark that plowed through the water at a lower place full sail, I basic aphorism that Raziel was, as he claimed, true with weather. joshua was leaning oer the aftrail of the ship, sh protrudeing alternately to me, then to Titus. It was pretty intelligible that purge infra the light wind that day, I would neer catch the ship, and when I looked in the direction of shore I could see nonhing exactly water. Strange, the things you think of at times like that. What I thought first was What an incredibly stupid way to die. coterminous I thought, jollyua will never make it without me. And with that, I began to pray, not for my own salvation scarce for Joshua. I prayed for the Lord to concur him safe, then I prayed for Maggies safety and happiness. Then, as I shrugged off my shirt and fell into a slow crawl in the direction of the shore define, which I knew I would never see, the wind stopped. Just stop ped. The sea flattened and the only sound I could hear was the frightened cries of the crew of Tituss ship, which had stopped in the water as if it had dropped anchor.Biff, this way Joshua called.I turned in the water to see my star gesture to me from the stern of the becalmed ship. Beside him, Titus cowered like a frightened child. On the mast above them sat a winged figure, who after I swam to the ship and was hoisted out by a very frightened bunch of watermans, I recognized as the angel Raziel. Unlike the times when we had seen him before, he wore robes as black as pitch, and the feathers in his move shone the blue-black of the sea under moonlight. As I joined Joshua on the raised poop dramatise at the stern of the ship, the angel took wing and gently landed on the deck beside us. Titus was shielding his head with his arms, as if to ward off an attacker, and he looked as if he were trying to dissolve between the deck boards.You, Raziel said to the Phoenician, and Titus looke d up between his arms. No harm is to come to these 2.Titus nodded, tried to presuppose something, then gave up when his voice broke under the weight of his fear. I was a little frightened myself. Decked out in black, the angel was a fearsome sight, even if he was on our side. Joshua, on the other hand, seemed in all at ease.Thank you, Josh said to the angel. Hes a cur, merely hes my best friend.Im good with weather, the angel said. And as if that explained everything, he flapped his massive black wings and lifted off the deck. The sea was dead calm until the angel was out of sight oer the horizon, then the line picked up, the sails filled, and waves began to lap at the bow. Titus ventured a peek from his cowed position, then stood up slowly and took one of the steering oars under his arm.Im acquittance to need a new shirt, I said.You can have mine, Titus said.We should sail closer along the coast, dont you think? I said.On the way, good master, Titus said. On the way.Your moth er eats the fungus from the feet of lepers, I said.Ive been meaning to discourse to her about that, Titus said.So we insure each other, I said.Absolutely, Titus said.Crap, Joshua said. I forgot to ask the angel about knowing women again.For the rest of the journey Titus was much more agreeable, and peculiarly enough, we didnt have to man any of the huge oars when we pulled into port, nor did we have to help release or load any cargo. The crew avoided us altogether, and tended the pigs for us without our even asking. My fear of sailing subsided after a day, and as the steady breeze carried us north, Joshua and I would watch the dolphins that came to ride the ships bow wave, or roost on the deck at shadow, breathing in the smell of cedar tree coming off the ships timbers, listening to the creaking of rope and rigging, and trying to create kindly aloud what it would be like when we found Balthasar. If it hadnt been for Joshuas constant badgering about what sex was like, it wou ld have been a pleasant journey indeed.Fornication isnt the only sin, Josh, I tried to explain. Im happy to help out, but are you outlet to have me steal so I can explain it to you? result you have me kill someone next so you can under sustain it?No, the difference is that I dont want to kill anyone.Okay, Ill tell you again. You got your loins, and shes got her loins. And even though you call them both loins, theyre different I understand the mechanics of it. What I dont understand is the feeling of it.Well, it feels good, I t superannuated you that.But that doesnt seem right. Why would the Lord make sin feel good, then condemn man for it?Look, why dont you try it? I said. It would be cheaper that way. Or better yet, get married, then it wouldnt even be sin.Then it wouldnt be the self analogous(prenominal), would it? Josh asked.How would I know, Ive never been married.Is it always the same for you?Well, in some ways, yes.In what ways?Well, so far, it seems to be moist.Moist?Yeah , but I cant say its always that way, just in my experience. Maybe we should ask a harlot?Better yet, Joshua said, face roughly, Ill ask Titus. Hes older, and he looks as if hes sinned a lot.Yeah, well, if you count throwing Jews in the sea, Id say hes an expert, but that doesnt mean Joshua had run to the stern of the ship, up a split up to the raised poop deck, and to a small, open-sided populate that acted as the captains quarters. Under the tent Titus reclined on a pile of rugs, drinking from a wineskin, which I saw him hand to Joshua.By the time I caught up with him Titus was saying, So you want to know about fucking? Well, son, you have come to the right place. Ive fucked a thousand women, fractional again as many boys, some sheep, pigs, a few chickens, and the odd polo-neck. What is it you want to know?Stand aside from him, Josh, I said, taking the wineskin and handing it tush to Titus as I pushed Joshua tooshie. The wrath of God could total him at any moment. Jeez, a turtle, thats got to be an abomination. Titus flinched when I mentioned the wrath of God, as if the angel skill call tolerate to perch on his mast any second.Joshua stood his ground. Right now lets just stick with the women part of it, if thats all right. Joshua patted Tituss arm to reassure him. I knew how that touch felt Titus would feel the fear run out of him like water.Ive fucked every kind of charwomanhood there is. Ive fucked Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Jews, Ethiopians, and women from places that havent even been named yet. Ive fucked gamey ones, skinny ones, women with no legs, women with Are you married? Joshua interrupted before the sailor started into how he had fucked them in a box, with a fox, in a house, with a mouseI have a wife in Rome.Is it the same with your wife and, say, a harlot?What, fucking? No, its not the same at all.Its moist, I said. Right?Well, yes, its moist. But thats not I grabbed Joshuas tunic and started to clout him away. There you have it. Lets go, Josh. Now you know, sin is moist. Make a mental note. Lets get some supper.Titus was laughing. You Jews and your sin. You know if you had more gods you wouldnt have to be so worried about making one angry?Right, I said, Im going to take spiritual advice from a guy who fucks turtles.You shouldnt be so judgmental, Biff, Joshua said. Youre not without sin yourself.Oh, you and your holier-than-thou attitude. You can just do your own break from now on if thats how you feel. You think I enjoy bedding harlots night after night, describing the whole process to you over and over?Well, yeah, Joshua said.Thats not the dose. The point is, wellthe point iswell. Guilt. I mean turtles. I mean So I was flustered. Sue me. Id never look at a turtle again without imagining it being molested by a scruffy Phoenician sailor. Thats not disturbing to you? Imagine it right now. Ill wait. See?Hes at rest(p) mad, Titus said.You shut up, you depleted viper, Joshua said.What about not being judgmental? Titus said.Thats him, Josh said. Its different for me. And suddenly, having said that, Joshua looked as sad as I had ever seen him. He slouched away toward the pigpen, where he sat down and cradled his head in his hands as if hed just been crowned with the weight of all the worries of mankind. He kept to himself until we left hand hand the ship.The Silk Road, the main vein of trade and custom and culture from the Roman conception to the Far East, terminated where it met the sea at the port city of Selucia Pieria, the admit city and naval stronghold that had fed and guarded Antioch since the time of Alexander. As we left the ship with the rest of the crew, Captain Titus stopped us at the gangplank. He held his hands, palm down. Joshua and I reached out and Titus dropped the coins wed paid for passage into our palms. I might have been holding a brace of scorpions, but you two reached out without a thought.It was a fair price to pay, Joshua said. You dont have to return our money.I almost drowned your friend. Im sorry.You asked if he could swim before you threw him in. He had a chance.I looked at Joshuas eyes to see if he was joking, but it was obvious he wasnt.Still, Titus said.So perhaps you will be given a chance someday as well, Joshua said.A slim fucking chance, I added.Titus grinned at me. Follow the shore of the harbor until it becomes a river. Thats the Onrontes. Follow its left bank and youll be in Antioch by nightfall. In the market there will be an old woman who sells herbs and charms. I dont remember her name, but she has only one eye and she wears a tunic of Tyran purple. If there is a magician in Antioch she will know where to find him.How do you know this old woman? I asked.I buy my tiger genus Phallus powder from her.Joshua looked at me for explanation. What? I said. Ive had a couple of harlots, I didnt alternate recipes. Then I looked to Titus. Should I have?Its for my knees, the sailor said. They hurt when it rains.Joshua took my articulatio humeri and started to lead me away. Go with God, Titus, he said.Put in a good word with the black-winged one for me, Titus said.Once we were into the wash of merchants and sailors around the harbor, I said, He gave us the money blanket because the angel scared him, you know that?So his kindness allayed his fear as well as benefiting us, Joshua said. wholly the better. Do you think the priests sacrifice the lambs at Passover for better reasons?Oh, right, I said, having no report what one had to do with the other, wondering mute if tigers didnt object to having their penises powdered. (Keeps them from chafing, I guess, but thats got to be a dangerous job.) Lets go find this old beldame, I said.The shore of the Onrontes was a stream of life and alter, textures and smells, from the harbor all the way into the marketplace at Antioch. There were people of every size and color that I had ever imagined, some shoeless and dressed in rags, others wear expensive silks and the purple linen from Tyre, said to be dyed with the blood of a poisonous snail. There were ox carts, litters, and sedan chairs carried by as many as eight slaves. Roman soldiers on horseback and on foot policed the crowd, while sailors from a dozen nations reveled in drink and noise and the feel of land beneath their feet. Merchants and beggars and traders and whores scurried for the turn of a coin, while unauthorized prophets spouted get acrossma from atop the mooring posts where ships tied off along the river dedicated men lined up and preaching like a line of noisy Greek columns. Smoke rose fragrant and blue over the streaming crowd, carrying the smell of spice and grease from braziers in the food booths where men and women hawked their fare in rhythmic, haunting songs that all ran together as you walked along as if one passed his song to the next so you might never experience a second of silence.The only thing I had ever seen that approached this was the line of pilgrims leading into Jerusalem on the feast days, but there we never saw so much color, heard so much noise, felt so much excitement.We stopped at a stand and bought a hot black drink from a wrinkled old man wearing a tanned bird carcass as a hat. He showed us how he made the drink from the seeds of berries that were first roasted, then ground into powder, then mixed with boiling water. We got this whole humbug by way of pantomime, as the man spoke none of the languages we were well-known(prenominal) with. He mixed the drink with honey and gave it to us, but when I tasted it, it still didnt seem to taste right. It seemed, I dont know, too dark. I saw a woman leading a nanny goat nearby, and I took Joshuas cup from him and ran after the woman. With the womans permission, I squirted a bit of milk from the nanny goats bag onto the top of each of our cups. The old man protested, making it seem as if wed committed some sort of sacrilege, but the milk had come out warm and frothy and it served to take away the bitterness of the black drink. Joshua downed his, then asked the old man for two more, as well as handing the woman with the goat a small brass coin for her trouble. Josh gave the second drink back to the old man to taste, and after much grimacing, he took a sip. A smile crossed his toothless mouth and before we left he seemed to be striking some sort of deal with the woman with the goat. I watched the old man grind beans in a copper cylinder while the woman milked her goat into a fertile clay bowl. There was a spice vendor next admission and I could smell the cinnamon, cloves, and allspice that lay loose in baskets on the ground.You know, I said to the woman in Latin, when you two get this all figured out, try sprinkling a little ground cinnamon on it. It just might make it perfect.Youre losing your friend, she said.I turned and looked around, sleuthing the top of Joshuas head just as he turned a corner into the Antioch market and a new push of people. I ran t o catch up to him.Joshua was bumping people in the crowd as he passed, evidently on purpose, and murmuring just loud enough so I could hear him each time he stool someone with a shoulder or an elbow. Healed that guy. Healed her. Stopped her suffering. Healed him. solace him. Ooo, that guy was just stinky. Healed her. Whoops, missed. Healed. Healed. Comforted. Calmed.People were turning to look back at Josh, the way one will when a stranger travel on ones foot, except these people all seemed to be either rejoicing or baffled, not annoyed as I expected.What are you doing? I asked.Practicing, Joshua said. Whoa, bad toe-jam. He spun on his heel, nearly turning his foot out of his sandal, and smacked a short bald man on the back of the head. All better now.The bald guy turned and looked back to see who had hit him. Josh was backing down the street. Hows your toe? Joshua asked in Latin.Good, the bald guy said, and he smiled, sorta goofy and dreamy, like his toe had just sent him a me ssage that all was right with the world.Go with God, and Josh spun, jumped, came down with each hand on a strangers shoulder and shouted, Yes Double healing Go with God, friends, two timesI was getting sort of uncomfortable. People had started to come after us through the crowd. Not a lot of people, but a few. Maybe five or six, each of them with that dreamy smile on his face.Joshua, maybe you should, uh, calm down a little.Can you believe all of these people need healing? Healed him. Josh leaned back and whisper in my ear. That guy had the pox. Hell pee without pain for the first time in years. Scuse me. He turned back into the crowd. Healed, healed, calmed, comforted.Were strangers here, Josh. Youre attracting attention to us. This might not be safeIts not like theyre blind or missing limbs. Well have to stop if we run into something serious. Healed God bless you. Oh, you no speak Latin? Uh Greek? Hebrew? No?Hell figure it out, Josh, I said. We should look for the old woman.Oh , right. Healed Josh slapped the pretty woman very hard in the face. Her maintain, a large man in a lash tunic, didnt look pleased. He pulled a dagger from his belt and started to advance on Joshua. Sorry, sir, Joshua said, not backing up. Couldnt be helped. Small demon, had to be banished from her. Sent it into that dog over there. Go with God. Thank you, thank you very much.The woman grabbed her husband by the arm and swung him around. She still had Joshuas handprint on her face, but she was smiling. Im back she said to her husband. Im back. She shook him and the anger seemed to drain out of him. He looked back at Joshua with an expression of such dismay that I thought he might faint. He dropped his knife and threw his arms around his wife. Joshua ran forward and threw his arms around them both.Would you stop it please? I pleaded.But I love these people, Josh said.You do, dont you?Yeah.He was going to kill you.It happens. He just didnt understand. He does now. refulgent he caugh t on. Lets find the old lady.Yes, then lets go back and get another one of those hot drinks, Joshua said.We found the slime eels selling a bouquet of monkey feet to a round trader dressed in striped silks and a wide conical hat woven from some sort of tough grass.But these are all back feet, the trader protested.Same magic, better price, said the hag, pulling back a shawl she wore over one side of her face to reveal a milky smock eye. This was obviously her intimidation move.The trader wasnt having it. It is a well-known fact that the reckon paw of a monkey is the best talisman for telling the future, but the back Youd think the monkey would see something coming, I said, and they both looked at me as if Id just sneezed on their falafel. The old woman drew back as if to cast a spell, or maybe a rock, at me. If that were true, I continued, I mean about telling the future with a monkey paw I mean because he would have quartet of them paws, that is and, uh never mind.How muc h are these? said Joshua, holding up a handful of dried newts from the hags baskets. The old woman turned to Josh.You cant use that many, the hag said.I cant? asked Joshua.These are useless, said the merchant, waving the hind legs and feet of two and a half former monkeys, which looked like tiny people feet, except that they were hirsute and the toes were longer.If youre a monkey Ill bet they come in handy to keep your butt from dragging on the ground, I said, ever the peacemaker.Well, how many do I need? Joshua asked, wondering how his diversion to save me had turned into a negotiation for newt crispies.How many of your camels are constipated? asked the crone.Joshua dropped the dried newts back into their basket. Well, uhDo those work? asked the merchant. For plugged-up camels, I mean.Never fails.The merchant scratched his pointed beard with a monkey foot. Ill meet your price on these worthless monkey feet if you throw in a handful of newts.Deal, said the crone.The merchant opened a satchel he had slung around his shoulder and dropped in his monkey feet, then followed them with a handful of newts. So how do these work? Make them into tea and have the camel drink it?Other end, said the crone. They go in whole. Count to one hundred and step back.The merchants eyes went wide, then narrowed into a squinch and he turned to me. Kid, he said, if you can count to a hundred, Ive got a job for you.Hed love to work for you, sir, Joshua said, but we have to find Balthasar the magus.The crone hissed and backed to the corner of her booth, covering all of her face but her milky eye. How do you know of Balthasar? She held her hands in front of her like claws and I could see her trembling.Balthasar I shouted at her, and the old woman nearly jumped through the wall behind her. I snickered and was ready to Balthasar her again when Josh interrupted.Balthasar came from here to Bethlehem to witness my birth, said Joshua. Im seeking his counsel. His wisdom.You would hail the dark ness, you would consort with demons and fly with the wretched Djinn like Balthasar? I wont have you near my booth, be gone from here. She made the sign of the evil eye, which in her case was redundant.No, no, no, I said. none of that. The magus left some, uh, frankincense at Joshuas house. We need to return it to him.The old woman regarded me with her good eye. Youre lying.Yes, he is, said Josh.BALTHASAR I screamed in her face. It didnt have the same effect as the first time around and I was a little disappointed.Stop that, she said.Joshua reached out to take her craggy hand. Grandmother, he said, our ships captain, Titus Inventius, said you would know where to find Balthasar. Please help us.The old woman seemed to relax, and just when I thought she was going to smile, she raked her nails across Joshuas hand and leapt back. Titus Inventius is a scalawag, she shouted.Joshua stared at the blood welling up in the scratches on the back of his hand and I thought for a second that he mig ht faint. He never understood it when someone was violent or unkind. Id probably be half a day explaining to him why the old woman scratched him, but right then I was furious.You know what? You know what? You know what? I was waving my finger under her nose. You scratched the Son of God. Thats your ass, thats what.The magus is gone from Antioch, and good riddance to him, screeched the crone.The fat trader had been watching this the whole time without saying a word, but now he began laughing so hard that I could simply hear the old woman wheezing out curses. So you want to find Balthasar, do you, Gods Son?Joshua came out of the stunned contemplation of his wounds and looked at the trader. Yes, sir, do you know him?Who do you think the monkeys feet are for? Follow me. He whirled on his heel and sauntered away without another word.As we followed the trader into an lane so narrow that his shoulders nearly touched the sides, I turned back to the old crone and shouted, Your ass, hag Mar k my words.She hissed and made the sign of the evil eye again.She was a little creepy, Joshua said, looking at the scratches on his hand again.Dont be judgmental, Josh, youre not without creepiness yourself.Where do you think this guy is leading us?Probably somewhere where he can murder and kill us.Yeah, at least one of those.

1. What argon few of the advantages that a strong Brazilian currency does for its population, and what are some of the challenges of having a strong currency relative to another currency? orbiculate economic forces have served Brazil well in recent age. As a leading exporter of raw materials such as Soya and entreat ore, the South American nation has benefited from the Chinese-fueled commodities boom. The instability in exchange evaluate between currencies creates difficulties for international mass and investment, for business planning, and for national economies, with impacts on prices and inflation.2. let out why the Brazilian government is concerned about its balance of trade with China? They are concerned because more Brazilians are buying in China now which could damage businesses in Brazil. Brazil remains a complicated place to do business for foreign-based companies. Challenges include a extremely complex and expensive tax and labor environment, burdensome bureaucra cy, costly credit, gradual corruption and deep social imbalances.3. What does a higher external pick up for goods and services in a country do for the standard of sustenance of its citizens? This would help them have a better standard of living so that they are able to buy their own homes.1. Explain the role of capitalism in the 100-year growth of Nederlander concerts. Individual industry growth differ from all(prenominal) other in many ways. Indeed, no two are on the andton alike. Some industries are dominated by booms. After a gyp recession, there is a rapid recovery that leads to a prolonged boom. over a 100-year life of such a cycle, there might be twenty years of recession and depression followed by eighty years of prosperity accompanied by lesser fluctuations. The Nederlanders have managed to bear on in business for over 100 years which shows that being a small business with a well grounded foundation could be the observe to success.2. Why is Nederlander able to cha rge higher prices for small theater performances when audiences could gift less at stadium concerts? Because the space has limited seating but big name entertainment they are able to monopolize off of the consumer by charging higher prices to see a big name entertainer. As a consumer I would pay the higher prices so that I am able to be in a smaller concert environment in my opinion less people mean less problems.3. Would you remain the current slump in the U.S economy to affect Nedelanders just the slate sales? Why or Why Not? I wearyt think it would have any affect on ticket sales, because even though the economy is in a slump we hushed crave entertainment, and socialization therefore people would find the money to do something that they would enjoy.

Ethan Frome Tragic figure that functions as an withall of the distress of others ay cache1897 unit Four Ethan Frome In the novella Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, important character Ethan Frome is a man that faces mevery disappointments as well no self-assurance. Ethan Frome is definitely a tragic flgure that functions as an Instrument of the suffering of others In the novel. Ethan Frome overall is a very tragic tale of misery and suffering, and any of the main characters involved give the bounce be connected to that suffering.Wharton makes Ethan not and the victim, but the function of all the other characters suffering to ruly start up In depth with the flaws that Ethan possesses. Zeena, Ethan FromeS married woman experiences much suffering due to Ethan. Ethan fatigued his whole flavour never being able to stand up for himself. He chose to marry Zeena for the sole reason that she would end his loneliness. It could have also been the fact that he felt bad that she dedicated her life to winning care of Ethans mom. Next, Ethan decided to give Zeena a loveless relationship.Never in the schoolbook does Ethan show any sort of emotion toward his wife, nor does she show any towards him. Ethan is omewhat solemn towards the one in which he personally chose to be his wife. He chooses to go to work rather than drive her to the doctor, he decides to pursue another cleaning woman who Is his wifes cousin, and lastly, he chooses to kill himself for the sake of his own independence and his love for Mattie. Zeena however, can be aggravating at times which causes Ethan to act certain ways. Zeena tragically has hypochondria which brings out the cold, unhappy, domineering woman who whines and complains incessantly.Ethan lets Zeena dominate him which shows his flaw of eing subordinate. These mistakes ultimately lead to his fall. It Is clearly seen that Zeena uses Illness to get Ethans attention and love he hasnt been giving. Zeena makes it hard for Ethan to show how h e feels about Mattie in his heart, because when she comes around, Ethan Is blindsided by her thoughts in his head. but there was only one thought in my take heed the fact that, for the first time since Mattie had come to live with them, Zeena was to be extraneous for the night.He wondered if the girl were thinking of it too (40). Another main character is Mattie Silver, who is he desired women Ethan wants to be with rather than his wife. From early descriptions of Mattie, she appears to be the silvery first whose arrival Into Ethan Fromes desperate life provides love and hope. Wharton describes Mattie as being a lively and happy young woman, before her suicide attempt that leaves her an disable and a former shadow of herself. Her name, Mattie Silver, symbolizes the glistening and sweetie of a effectuate of sterling silver.Wharton also advances The pure air, and the long summer hours In the open, gave life and elasticity to Mattie (Wharton 60). Thls quote give Mattie the ima ge of someone with great beauty and personality. Ethan has strong feelings for Mattie and it turns out that the maiden has mutual feelings. Because she has feelings for him, and the sweetness of spirit to stake him in return, the resulting tragedies occur. She develops a catastrophic attitude. She had the mindset that if she couldnt be with Ethan, and be happy, and so she doesnt want 1 OF2 sne tnen encourages Etnan to take tne slea down ana commit sulc10e wltn her.Her spontaneous and forceful emotions that are tied up with Ethan lead to much uffering. The fact that Ethan cursorily agrees to commit suicide shows that he isnt really self-reliant and doesnt think for himself. Wharton shows a flaw that Ethan possesses which in turns cause much suffering for him and Mattie. Ethan Frome is definitely multicolored as a tragic figure in his crippled state of misery. His tragic flaw could be that he is too indebted to family, and feels too much obligation to them. This brings him home to care for his parents, and wont allow him to leave his wife to seek happiness.Its a good trait, loyalty, but in this case it eeps him hold in a miserable situation, that, because he wont resolve it in a different way, leads to his tragic and spontaneous decision on the day he decides to go sledding with the women he truly desired. Although Ethan may have suffered, his suffering impacted the people around him. Ethan and his wife represent a upturned relationship. It is very ironic how the sight dish Zeena cherishes is broken. The fact that Zeenas cat breaks the pickle dish is significant. The cat is already symbolically linked with Zeena.
Following the death of Lenin on 22nd January 1924, Stalin, man of steel, rose to the top of the USSR with a combination of luck and by apply his semipolitical skills. Therefore by Stalins fiftieth birthday he had outright achieved for himself complete manage over the USSR.Stalins rise to indicant can be disgorge down to his ruthlessness he would non befuddle gained author had it not been for his brutal nature, however there were many factors that contri entirelyed to Stalins success. Stalin had the characteristics of a dictator from childhood, in the sense that he was unable to cope with defeat or admit that he was wrong. This definitely assisted him in his quest to fetch ruler of the USSR.Stalin number 1 became noticed in 1905 after he first joined the communists and helped to raise funds by robbing banks and looting trains. During the cultured contend Stalin stayed loyal and during this m he forcibly seized grain from farmers in the siemens in order to feed the wor kers in the North. As a recompense for this Lenin consequently do him responsible for the Red Army in the sulfur during the Civil War. This brought him into conflict with Trotsky. This meant that already Stalin had made a name for himself and had been recognized by Lenin as someone who was reliable and who had impressive dictatorship skills, this is why Lenin gave him a job as Commander in Chief during the civil war.Later on in 1922 Stalin and so achieved promotion to General Secretary, this was a fairly boring job, however it was still within the politburo and it keep Stalin invade every day. As this was not re whollyy a position of authorization using his manipulative skills Stalin makes the job have a greater political influence, which thus wins himself a good level of authority. Stalin wanted to do all of the poor organisations jobs that everyone else sentiment were boring, this was the first manipulative move that Stalin similarlyk and by having base jobs and by maki ng them sound better Stalin was instantaneously becoming more than noticed by the wad and he was getting some respect, which he finally used to help him rise to power.If Stalin was to be leader of the USSR then this meant that Lenin would have to be out the way. Lenin suffered several strokes in 1922 and 1923 that left him paralysed and eventually in 1924 he died. If Stalin was to become leader he had to overcome his briny opposition for power, which was Trotsky. The funeral of Lenin was organised by Stalin and he also lead the mourning. This was to pee an image to the humankind that Stalin was close to the deceased however in hindsight we dwell that he only did this to boost his chance of becoming the adjacent leader.Trotsky was nowhere to be seen at Lenins funeral and had nothing to do with the preparations and many raft saw this move by Trotsky as a sign of offense and the public now saw Stalin as the better of the two. barely Stalin was scene to have told Trotsky the wrong while for the funeral and Trotsky said that he was away at his holiday home recovering from an illness. Whether this was true or not any way it was a strange move by Trotsky not to subprogram up, as that now put Stalin in the driving seat for the power of the USSR.Before Lenin died, he wrote a letter to the Party Congress that draw his vagarys for the future. In this letter he also gave his opinions on the members of the Politburo including Stalin and Trotsky, the two primary(prenominal) contenders for the leadership of the USSR. After Lenin had died, the letter became know as Lenins Testament. Had it been made public at the time it had the potential to destroy Stalins cause over to power as this document showed exactly what Lenin thought of Stalin. At the time Lenin obviously felt that Trotsky was the most suitable successor for the reign as in his testament Lenin described Trotsky as a man with large ability and he also thought Trotsky was perhaps the most depende nt man in the Central Committee. Lenin saw Stalin as too rude and he wanted Stalin to be removed from his post as General Secretary.Meanwhile Stalin must have been shaken when he heard about what Lenin had to say about him. What Lenin thought of these two candidates was crucial, as the public would not want an enemy of Lenins to be the bordering leader. This is why Stalin appeared to be very close to Lenin and stand by him. However in spite of these comments the Testament was not made public. The Leftists Zinoviev and Kanenev protested that it was out of date and so a visibly disturbed Stalin was rescued and the truth did not reach the Soviet people. Because the public did not know what Lenin really thought of Stalin, they still saw Stalin as a commendable replacement to Lenin. What Zinoviev and Kanenev did was an big part of Stalins pursuit to get to power because had the testament been released, the public would have disliked Stalin as they worshiped Lenin.The two main contende rs for the leadership of the USSR, Stalin and Trotsky were now involved in a feud with each other. This help Stalin deal power in the way that now the public were on his view and Trotsky now frightened many people in the USSR. Trotsky had the idea of feast socialism across the realism he argued that the future security of the USSR pose in trying to give permanent revolution across the world until the whole globe was Communist. Many people in the USSR believed that Trotsky would involve them in future wars and conflicts.Stalin emerged as Lenins successor because of his policies, these were met with greater approval than Trotskys ideas, as Stalin argued that in future, the Party should try to establish Socialism in One Country rather than Trotskys idea which was to try to spread revolution worldwide, this was very popular. Socialism in one country was the idea that communism shouldnt be spread across the world but that the politburo should concentrate on just having it in Russia . As the Soviet people were scared of years of war and revolution Stalin seemed to be the man who dumb their feeling and did what the public wanted. In 1925, Trotsky gave up his only symbol of power when he resigned from his position as Commissar for War. He now had nothing and because the war was over, the future was looking bleaker for him. Stalin, because of this, was now the favourite to become the next controller of the USSR.With Trotsky now out of the way, Stalin was now on course to take the leadership of the USSR, he uses his relationship and his positions of authority with other members of the Politburo extremely well. Stalin successfully played both the leftists and the rightist in the Politburo he did this by using his friends who owed him favours. In 1927 Stalin first joined the rightists and attacked the left removing all the important members from the office, then a year later he joined the leftists and attacked the right, forcing out his opponents and bringing in so me of his own allies who would support him. By doing this Stalin was now the most senior member of the Politburo. This was a huge step towards his bring and put him in pole position to become the next dictator.In conclusion I believe that Stalin achieved total power over the USSR through a combination of political scheming, luck, the mistakes of his opponents and the clever way in which he built up his power base. Each event that leads up to Stalins dictatorship was just as important as the next he got to power through a combination of all of these. If any of the step to his reign had been missing, there is no doubt that he would not have been in control of the USSR and been able to cause the damage he did.

Technologies such as WAP, 3G , NTT Do COMO will spread crossways the whole reality to enable cheap and faster modes of wireless services. Blootooth Revolution, will enable possibilities for establishing profligate ad-hoc links, and enable mobility during a cordless connection, which is not offered by infrared enabled products. The Blootooth semiconductors revenues unsocial might surpass $3 billion, and the bluetooth-enabled devices might exceed 250 million units by the year 2005.As the technology market will be evolving beyond 2005, many new technologi es and e- business models will progress.Impact on industries contrasted today, where an explosion of technology companies compete for venture capital, I predict that the internet economy by 2005 will be a network of established businesses whose influence comes from stretches around the world. Number of players will shrink and several enlarged companies dominate each segment of the Internet.However, Internet forces business models to change by the year 2005, great changes will be made in many industries. The Book Industry will fully adapt the digital revolution and many publishers will sell their electronic-books on the Internet.Newspaper industry will experience a great change by 2005 most of its customers buy and read their daily newspaper online. The industry will be fully digital compatible and will sell newspaper on the arse of subscriptions. Readers will buy monthly or yearly subscriptions and read online.By the year 2005 I see great changes in the travel industry and there will be a great impact of digital technology on this industry. Most of the airline companies will be selling flight tickets and deals directly online to the customers. The travel industry will make alliances vertically with the related industries such as Hotel industry, Transport industry Amusement and lay etc., and will directly sell the Holiday Packages and deals to their customers. As the airline lodge itself sells flight tickets online and travel agents will evolve themselves as e-travel agent or virtual travel agent and normally sell holiday package deals to the customers.The digital effect is more uncovered and will broaden By 2005 almost every modern, traditional small, large, private and public sector industries will implement some level of digital technology.Impact on leisure, travel, etc.The digital impact on leisure and travel is massive, unlike the present people by 2005 will mostly depend on e- travel agents and airline industry for planning there holiday. People sear ch Internet for their holiday spots and will book all necessary hotel accommodation and travel online. As there will be massive changes in the travel industry the touristry departments of various countries will put their tourism and local festival information online to enable people scattered across the world to know. Planning a holiday in 2005 is more kindle and lively.Conclusion Internet considerably shrinks the size of our Universe and we will see a High Tech digital world by the year 2005 and beyond. The world as I see it 2005 Author Bhaskar Kolluru Page 3 of 11

Three sidereal day Diet Analysis According to the forage pyramid, my diet is horrible considering what I fool consumed in these 3 days. It shows that I convey to climb up alimentation more, and better quality foods. My sugar intake is too high and should be reconsidered. Possibly I could swap out processed sugars for internal sugars much(prenominal) as in fruit. It is obvious from the records I have provided that I do not take in as much (if all) fruit that 1 should be consuming on a daily basis. Thus, not just now am I depriving myself of vitamins, I am also depriving myself of the fiber call for in order for my digestive system and metabolism to construct as necessary.I will have to incorporate more consentaneous elements with fruit and vegetables to motivate as roughage, as going to the bathroom proves difficult for me- most potential this is why. I was astonished by how many carbohydrates I take in too. Eating a lot of carbs can add to the blockage/ dally in the bowels so I need to consider decreasing the cause of carbohydrates that I eat, cutting out white and processed breads and grains, replacing them for whole grains and wheat products. The only milk I intake is with my coffee and tea.Although I have four hot beverages a day with around 2 tablespoons of dairy, I am aw atomic number 18 that this is no-where near the recommended 2 cups a day. On a good note however, I do not beverage many sugary drinks at all- if any. Coffee, tea and water are my staple fibre liquids therefore the sugar that I eat equals out to the sugars that I gaint drink. Drinking 2-3 glasses of water per day are slight than the 6-8 glasses recommended however I do make a aware effort to drink more on the days that I work out. I do not take in nice calories, as I burn on average 800calories and eat on any given day from 1200-1800.The meat and beans intake was at 3. 5 oz which I do not eat meat much so this is not a surprise its suppose to be 6oz intake. With the Vegetables this is an favourable one(a) I love any kind of vegetable and was short these 3 days I had 1 cups intake when it says I should do 3 cups. Fruit intake was 0 cup when it says 2 cups recommended. Grains intake was 3. 5oz tribute is 7oz. All in all I would say I need to work on virtuallythings but I am towering to say I will be working on ever-changing my lifestyle. I have made a sensible effort to start a meal forge in conjunction with a 60 day workout called insanity.I have done this before and the results have been outstanding. I was at the peak of physical condition as well as health. With eating correctly my mind was clear and vivid. My memory was better and I had no expressionings of sluggishness or feisty behavior. Joining this meal send off will help me jump-start my metabolism by keeping me on a strict guideline on times to eat (since this seems to be a problem with me), portions- since I dont eat enough and balanced diet as it has proven as of now I am eat ing more protien and carbohydrates than anything else.Some of the ways I can work on these things is make sure I eat more in all the areas of the pyramid, with the grains I will eat more pastas, whole grain breads, crackers and just anything that has grain in it. Also more vegetables, this is easy because I do love them but need to go obtain more. I definitely have to make a more conscious effort to eat more fruit as they seem to be the last thing I want to pick up for some reason. Oranges, Grapefruit, apples, kiwis etc is good for me and I plan to eat them more.Milk will be knockout since I am not a huge fan. I have an issue with eating WHITE liquid ingredients I. e milk, sour cream, mayonnaise, alfredo sauce. This doesnt bother me much as most white things seem to be pure fat, usually. Oils, I do consume a lot of natural oils such as in avocados, olive oil and some nuts. some other thing I need to eat more of and that I LOVE, are legumes. They provide nutrients, fiber and hunge r control all while cosmos delicious. I do take a superfood supplement called Spirulina.If there is a single food in this world that I feel spate should take every-day, it is this product. What is spiraling Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is being unquestionable as the food of the future because of its amazing ability to synthesize high-quality concentrated food more efficiently than any other algae. Most notably, Spirulina is 65 to 71 percent complete protein, with all essential amino acids in perfect balance. In comparison, beef is only 22 percent protein.Spirulina has a photosynthetic conversion rate of 8 to 10 percent, compared to only 3 percent in such land-growing plants as soybeans. Nutritional Properties of Spirulina Contains high concentrations of 18 Vitamins and Minerals recondite in Chlorophyll Contains ALL essential amino acids 65% of Spirulina is Protein Rich in gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) an anti-inflammatory Omega 6 roly-poly pudding Acid 100x the Vitamin A of Carrots 50x the Iron of Spinach 10x the Beta Carotene of Carrots 7x the calcium of Milk 6x the Protein of Eggs x More Iron Than Beef Rich in Phytonutrients and antioxidants Over-all, I feel that this three day meal plan was extremely beneficial as it got me to become re-conscious of the food that I am putting in my body. For someone that is so conscious of exercise, I am surprised at the way I have let myself slip, food wise. I am taking step towards fixing this immediately and feel that I should continue doing a food log at least every three months, not only as a indigence technique but as a means of continuing a certain lifestyle.

Governments can affect tourism development in a number of different ways and at three scales, national, regional and local
At a depicted object scale the g e reallyplacenment sets a genuinely b pathway agenda for phaetonry, they define primary goals for emergence and strike polices with broad strategies for their implementation. The main aim at this level is to back up frugal using, especially in LEDCs as both local anaesthetic and international tourism can be very makeable. National tourism plans designate tourism development regions to sponsor redistribute wealth, to create employment and to channel development into zones that do the appropriate attractions and infrastructure.This broad planning and concentration on stinting development is very clear in the case study of Ireland. IN 1993 1. 25 million state visited Northern Ireland and 10,000 were directly employed in the tourism assiduity. In Ireland there were ab come out 3. 5 million visitors and over 90,000 plurality were employed in tourism. Then in December 1994 the British and Irish governments announced national tourism plans to market Ireland as a whole rather than two separate areas. In 1995 i??6. 8 million tourism incentive attracted 92,000 to a greater extent visitors to the area, which in turn generated a and i??4 million in international aid.This should help Ireland to develop stintingally and should create 30,000 new jobs. Such promotion has increase the confidence of private investors e. g. Hilton International strengthened a i??17 million luxury hotel along the lagan river in Belfast, as divulge of a i??130 million enthronement scheme. At a regional scale the government has a much greater bewitch on specific tourism development issues. at that place is usually a greater level of concern over potential environmental impacts of tourism development, so and and then the government whitethorn constrain tourism development rather than totally encouraging it to protect the environment.Also a more detailed consideration of the type and situation of visitor attractions, together with funding ser vices much(prenominal) as accommodation are considered. Regional plans practically provide strategies aimed at the concentration or dispersal of visitors, the planning of tourist information services, the designation of tourist routes and strategic placement of key attractions. wherefore the government may encourage a new, up and coming regional attraction or they may attempt to discourage use such as in the region of North Devon, where for example Braunton burrows is being discourage from tourists, as it is a very fragile area.This is done by constricting use to the car parks, placing ministry of defence signs and promoting the area of Saunton Sands, which will draw tourists out of the fragile location. Another example is the south west of England where the tourist boards of England and Wales (although they fork out no legally enforceable status) provide important frameworks for co-ordinating private and cosmos sector development of tourism. They have to manage problems such as over-crowding and poor accessibility.Local scale planning policies are focused on the natural organisation of tourism resources and facilities (accommodation, local, transport, catering and local attractions), the control of physical development (such as hotel construction) and counselling of visitors. These are broadly short-term plans and mostly deal with preventing or reducing conflicts in tourism and encouraging its development. The management of tourism is vital to the continued success of the industry.The main aim of tourism is to be sustainable, because all tourism developments have the potential to damage the environment, the mixer structure or the economic stability of an area. The environment is oddly undemanding to damage if the carrying capacity of a tourist attraction is exceeded. This will unravel to a series of problems, which will decrease the quality of the attraction and therefore discourage visitors from coming, which will then destroy the industry. So management is particularly important with environmental attractions with the main aim of keeping the number of lot below the carrying capacity.An example of this kind of management is Watersmeet in North Devon. here(predicate) there is careful management to prevent lots of visitors from coming to the location. There is a very limited car park, which requires a fee found on the length of time propitiateed. The lodge of Watersmeet is located away from the road and is not easily accessible to wheelchairs, elderly or buggies due to squeeze steep paths and bridges. It is withal deliberately badly signposted so that is difficult to find unless you specifically look for it. There are also no signs to encourage strolls along the footpaths to the surrounding villages to preserve the paths and bridges.The finale and heritage of a location can also be damaged by tourism. Clovelly best illustrates this, as it is a honey pot attraction in North Devon. This village was very popular with to urists and because of its size was overrun by the increase in numbers. This could have lead to the construction of new buildings such as hotels and restraints that werent in try-on with the existing ending and may have even replaced existing tralatitious shops. To prevent this kind of social damage the area is managed to restrict visitors and is shut to all traffic.Development is also restricted in Clovelly to preserve the culture and traditional crafts of the area. All over North Devon there is a smooth culture that many tourists come to experience. To protect this especially in the National Park areas, it is managed so that any conflicts always favour the solutions that protect the environment, culture and heritage of the location. Surprisingly tourism can also damage the economic stability of an area, which at first sight is not thought of, as tourism is a profitable industry.It requires a vast quantity of investment to set up a tourist attraction and then unless the brook i s cautiously managed the attraction will loose money and either the owners or the local area will have to pay back the loan, upset the economy. Tourism also requires a lot of extra money to defend the attractions, which can be redundant unless it is carefully managed and spent wisely. If the money is wasted and doesnt properly restore the facility then it will loose line of credit and the tourism industry will suffer.Another problem with tourism is that the jobs it provides for the local economy are seasonal and not full time. This doesnt help fix money into the local economy as many of the residents require more permanent jobs and so seek employment elsewhere. The jobs provided are also very much given to outsiders who then take their profits out of the location, not aiding the economy. Management, especially in the National Park and Heritage Coast of North Devon, ensures that those who profit from tourism are either from the immediate area, or are people who will use the mon ey to help maintain or further tourist development.This includes large companies such as the National Trust who turn over profits back into the economy, this keeps the tourist industry afloat while also creating a stable economy. A big problem for the tourist industry is the infrastructure of the location and whether it can deal with the high numbers of visitors or not. It has to be carefully managed so that the tourists can get to the facilities and enjoy their stay without damaging the environment, or the cultural heritage of the attraction.For example tourists need roads and accommodation to enjoy their trip, yet if this involves buildings a huge bypass then this will damage the environment and decrease the environmental quality of the area, this may lead to a decrease in visitors and a decline in the industry. Also a new hotel complex may be built for tourists yet this may replace a traditional shop or craft centre, which was originally a tourist attraction, so management is v ery important. Overall it is clear to see that unless a tourist area is carefully managed then it will be damaged which will mean les people visit the area and so the tourist industry will fail.

Solomon Garber BPL 5100 Prof. LaManna Individual Case Study Case 275 Interboro, at a time a small manufacturer of scalpels and other surgical equipment, became the worlds best-known maker of prosthetic limbs and surgical implants under the leadership of shit Dodson. The structure of the caller, under Dodson, was precise unique. As chief operating officer, Dodson would routinely conceive sensitive product ideas, go at present to his R&D department and see the product through from inception to completion. In the quest incident study analyses, I will analyze what went wrong with Interboro, as easily as advise Ms.Francesca Fortas on the appropriate direction to take the corporation as she takes over from Mr. Dodson. Interboros weaknesses under Dodsons leadership were very apparent. For starters, Jack would completely bypass his senior team on peeled product initiatives and how those products would fit into the broader scheme of the caller. From this, we can infer that the company had a very passionate chief operating officer who prided himself on product innovations, while simultaneously neglected other crucial areas necessary for continued success. Marketing was by chance the companys biggest incompetency.Soon thereafter, the company lost its innovating edge, one of its major initial strengths. Interboros external environment started to become a serious threat. Competitors were developing products that went beyond Interboros patents and designs. The competition within the industry was growing and their products outperformed the incumbents. found on my analysis of the companies strengths, weaknesses and external environment, I can confidently place that the company was in dire need of a savior and could no longer operate the way it was.I have illustrated the situation below on that point is a very unique correlation between the companys strengths, weaknesses and external environment. The lack of communication between Jack and his team, a wea kness, directly leads to the company falling behind the competition, its external environment. The companys bodied level strategy is in shambles. When the CEO secludes himself from the rest of his team and totally focuses on one aspect of melody level strategy, product innovation, the company will not operate at full capacity.Interboros business level strategy can be summed up in the following quote by its head of production, Frank Tambor he didnt have untold faith that anyone in the company could come up with ideas, so he didnt really develop the capability. When analyzing this quote, we can conclude that their was close to zero employee intimacy in Interboros day to day operations. My biggest recommendation to Francesca Fortas, the new CEO set to take over the reigns from a deceased Jack Dodson, is to run the Jack Dodson pose of strong eadership. Francesca must adopt a crisscross model, one that uses Jacks confidence as CEO, and his efficiency to work new products to ma rket, while also getting employees involved and actually implementing employee suggestions. agree to Ernesto Poza, a leading business consultant, making the employees involvement is a stylemark of good business. Making a larger percentage of managers compensation based on sales and profits is the first strategy that should be adopted. It is easy to institute and drives immediate action and results.Francesca is not worthy to oversee an holy reorganization of the company, rather, by utilizing her technological skills and business savvy, and adopting this loanblend model of strong leadership by employee involvement, she will likely assistant Interboro into a new era of profitability. It is possible to adopt this hybrid model it has been done before, most notably by Jack Welch, former CEO of GE. Mr. Welch was going to quit his first engineering position at full general Electric because he was dissatisfied with the bureaucratic ways in which the company operated.He was persuaded t o stay and eventually was promoted to VP. He used his new position to simplify the management structure while at the same time vouching to be 1 or 2 in the industries GE participated in. This is precisely what Francesca must accomplish. Simplify the management structure, as opposed to an entire reorganization, while world as aggressive as Mr. Dodson was at getting products to market. The bottom stock certificate is that more people need to be involved in the entire operation, from product brainstorming and design to manufacturing and market.

If I were in charge of the Asiatic trading operations for McCain I would recommend starting a joint endanger with an existing, established, intimately known Chinese potato company, for a year or so, or until McCain has the recognition and ability to stand on its own. Creating a Joint venture with an established Chinese company would fork over McCain the entry It needs into the Asian potato market. McCain would be able to learn the ways that companies handle byplay deals In China, as they most likely defer from business deals in other parts of the world, and will also Introduce McCain to future customers.A nonher testimonial would be to purchase a small, well known, Chinese potato company. This would give McCain access to the Chinese market through a company that Is already know, and has already created a name for Itself. I would make sure that McCain abides by all Chinese laws, and all customs, to the best of my ability. 2. When interacting with Chinese business colleagues, Mc Cain susceptibility face challenges with most, if not all, of Hypotheses culture dimensions.For example, when looking at condition outdistance, Canadian managers at McCain could face challenges cause Canada has a much tear down power distance than China, and workers may not feel comfortable with this power dynamic. A Canadian manager may try to get workers to work harder so they can achieve greater success, but Chinese power distance doesnt allow this in China, one works and does not have aspirations that pass along ones position within the company.When it comes to individualism and collectivism, China has a much lower score than Canada (http//greet-hefted. Com/china. HTML). This might create challenges for Canadian managers because Chinese workers generally stick with together. If a Canadian manager promotes one person from a collective group, that could create problems, so the manager must take that into shape before making any decisions.Canadian managers may also face chal lenges with quantify orientation. China has very long term orientation (http//www. Acculturated. Com/greet-hefted-cultural- dimensions/long-term-orientation/), while compass north America has very short term orientation. This could created challenges for Canadian managers because they are apply to workers wanting quick results, but In China It Is the opposite, and managers may not know how to handle that.

Abraham capital of Nebraska, the 16th President of the joined States, gave the now-famous Gettysburg Address run-in on November 9, 1863 during the the Statesn courtly War. The Gettysburg Address, only two-hundred and seventy-two (272) words and estimated to look at lasted only two-three minutes, was capital of Nebraskas way of encouraging the American sight to maintain their stake for the well-mannered War. The speech was, however, about much much than war. capital of Nebraska delivered the speech to emphasize American ideals of freedom, safeice and par for solely people tenets funda mental to Americas origins, development and future.This essay will provide the pursuit 1. ) the American Revolutionary War, the Declaration of Independence and their influence on the Gettysburg Address, 2. ) the splendor of the Gettysburg Address during the Civil War era, and 3. ) the relevance of the Gettysburg Address during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. While the Gettysburg A ddress was short in length, it refers to Americas immense history base on the struggle for civil liberties. For example, some European explorers traveled to the Americas in search of wealth in the 1500s, 1600s and 1700s while others seek religious and political freedoms.By the 1700s, long dozen British colonies were established in North America. In 1770s, colonists rebelled against British rule and started the American Revolutionary War. In 1776, colonial leaders drafted the Declaration of Independence. This document declared the original thirteen states free from British rule. It as well emphasized the colonial beliefs in private rights and the equality of men with following We hold these truths to be self-evident, that each men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.That to secure these rights, Goernments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers fr om the consent of the governed. Lincoln referred to the Declaration of Independence in the Gettysburg Address. He employ it to explain that the United States of America was created based on the principles of equality and freedom. Because of Americas origins, Lincoln argued that all people were created equal, and that the government of the United States existed to defend the rights of all Americans.Lincoln stated, Four score and seven years past our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and employ to the proposition that all men are created equal. In that statement, Lincoln compared the Civil War to the American Revolutionary War. He suggested that the two wars were both based on the pursuit of freedom and equality for all, and that the Civil War was needful because of that. He also emphasizes here the importance of preserving the United States Government, which exists to hold dear the rights of all Americans.Lincolns referral to the Dec laration of Independence in his speech was non only a reference to the importance of Americas history. It was also a plea to his audience during the Civil War Era. The Civil War, begun in 1861 with South Carolinas secession from the Union, was primarily a battle over the right to continue the practice of slavery. American slavery forced people of African origin to provide free labor. It also denied people of African origins basic rights.Slavery was the basis for the economy in most Confederate states. In m all northern states, slavery had been outlawed and was seen as unjust. Thus, the affair of slavery divided the United States. As a result, Lincoln utilize the Gettysburg Address to encourage Americans to fight to preserve the united States. According to Lincoln, the United States was based upon freedom and equality, and that our government was created to protect the rights of its citizens, regardless of their rush or religion.He stated in the Gettysburg Address Now we are em ployed in a swell civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedomand that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Lincoln also used the Gettysburg Address to encourage proceed support of the Civil War when the American public was exhausted by the horrors of war.Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania at the dedication of the Soldiers discipline Cemetery. This ceremony commemorated the Battle at Gettysburg, which occurred in July 1863 and resulted in more than than 7,000 deaths, more casualties than any other Civil War skirmish. The Battle at Gettysburg was a turning point in the war, weakening the Confederacy. Because of the large number of deaths, Lincoln also utilized the Gettysburg Address as a way to put down those who had lost their lives. He stated We are met on a great battle-field of th at war.We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might liveIt is or else for us to be here dedicated to the great task stay before usthat from these honored dead we take increased fear to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotionthat we here extremely resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain Thus, Lincoln appealed to the American public, asking them to support the Civil War to protect private freedoms, to preserve the nation, and also in remembrance of the men who lost their lives during and as a result of the war.Lincolns Gettysburg Address had origins in the American Revolutionary War in the 1770s, was created to gain public support of the Civil War in the 1860s. It has also been used repeatedly in the 20th and 21st centuries to promote American ideals of freedom and equality. One of the most noted examples of this is Rev. Dr. Martin Luther index, Jr. s I H ave a Dream speech. force was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, which was designed to give blacks the same rights as whites like the right to vote, the right to go to different public places, etc.King gave his I Have a Dream speech in 1963 in Washington, DC before more than two hundred thousand (200,000) people, and referred to President Abraham Lincoln and his Gettysburg Address speech. King stated Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation In conclusion, Lincolns Gettysburg Address was not only important historically, nevertheless it is relevant today. His speech was about two concepts. First, he promoted the belief that all people were created equal and deserve the same rights and freedoms.Second, he promoted the idea that our government, and therefore our country, is worth preserving because both exist to protect those rights and freedoms we all deserve. The fight for equal ity in our country still exists while it is less about race and more about simple economics. Lincolns speech summed it up it doesnt matter what you look like, how much money you have, or your educational level all people are created equal. And, our government exists simply to protect that concept.
