THE LOSS OF THE CREATURE EVERY EXPLORER NAMES his island Formosa, beautiful. To him it is beautiful because, being first, he has access to it and can see it for what it is. But to no one else is it ever as beautiful--except the rare man who manages to recover it, who knows that it has to be recovered. Garcia Lopez de Cardenas discovered the Grand Canyon and was amazed at the sight. It can be imagined: One crosses miles of desert, breaks through the mesquite, and there it is at one's feet. Later the government set the place aside as a national park, hoping to pass along to millions the experience of Cardenas. Does not one see the same sight from the Bright Angel Lodge that Cardenas saw? The assumption is that the Grand Canyon is a remarkably interesting and beautiful place and that if it had a certain value P for Cardenas, the same value P may be transmitted to any number of sightseers-just as Banting's discovery of insulin can be transmitted to any number of diabetics. A counterinfluence is at work, how- ever, and it would be nearer the truth to say that if the place is see? by a million sightseers, a single sightseer does not receive value p but a millionth part of value P . It is assumed that since the Grand Canyon has the fixed interest value P, tours can be organized for any number of people. A man in Boston decides to spend his vacation at the Grand Canyon. He-- visits his travel bureau, looks at the folder, signs up for a two-week tour. He and his family take the tour, see the Grand Canyon, and return to Boston. May we say that this man has seen the Grand Canyon? Possibly he has. But it is more likely that what he has done is the one sure way not to see the canyon. Why is it almost impossible to gaze directly at the Grand Canyon , under these circumstances and see it for what it is-as one picks up a strange object from one's back yard and gazes directly at…...

Han V. Roman Empire

...Michael Miranda 12-20-10 The Han and Romans were very large empires that existed from 200 B.C.E through 200 C.E. Technology was key to both empires but they both had different views on technology. Both empires used water to their advantage but the way they used it was different, for example the Han used water to benefit the everyday man while the Romans built the aqueducts, which only benefitted people that had homes. The way they treated the people was different because the Han followed Confucius’ teachings while the Romans were selfish towards the people. The Romans and Han had a huge thing in common which was that they felt superior to the rest of the world. These two empires had many similarities but the way they viewed things was different. A thing that was very vital to both empires was water because without it they probably would have not been the empires that they were. The Romans had aqueducts, which benefitted any landowners, and they were very proud of according to Frontinus who said “The abundance of water is sufficient not only for public and private uses and applications but truly even for pleasure”. According to Huan Tan the Han used the water to make inventions because he said, “Water power was also applied (pestle and mortar)”. Although they both used water to build inventions the Romans built their inventions on a large scale while the Han built theirs on a small scale. The Han treated the lower class with respect while the......

Differences in Ancient Rome and Han China

...Han China and Classical Rome When comparing Han China and Classical Rome, many political, geographical, and religious similarities can be found, though many differences are also prevalent. Though Roman and Han political structures both emphasized bureaucracies, they came to them quite differently. Through copious amounts of expansion, both societies spread culture and earned money, though expansion was eventually their downfalls. Their religions differed immensely, with Rome emphasizing polytheism and Han China focusing on Confucianism. The differences and similarities between these two civilizations are to be discussed in this essay. Though both Rome and the Han dynasty were bureaucracies, both respective bureaucracies were quite different. For example, Han China had a centralized emperor (best know was Wu Ti) who set forth a certain curriculum that each bureaucrat would have to adhere to to become a leader. This curriculum was taught at specialized schools for the rich, though sometimes poor, and talented young men that one day wanted to become a bureaucrat. These bureaucrats carried out the laws of the emperor, so the people had very little say so. On the other hand, Classical Rome had a quite different system. Starting out as a local monarchy, Rome changed to a republic quite early in its expansion. they had a Senate of aristocrats that would make laws. From this Senate, two consuls were elected to be its leader. A dictator of Rome was only elected during times of......

(20%) * Set in 1909 * Repression, dreams, fantasy- all part of the case * Mother and child relationship-Infantile sexuality * He was attempting to negotiate Castration and Oedipal complex. * When he tried to negotiate the Oedipus complex, it led to his outbreak of phobia. * Generally, the father’s role is to take up the position of authority and oedipal prohibitor between the mother and son. However, Hans’s father was unable to do so in this case. * What is necessary is that the father must intervene in the mother child relation? – to establish the incest prohibition and establish the “promise” the ego ideal. * Father is the No and the Promise! * So Hans difficulties arise from number of sources; * The mother is overly attached to him and will not allow him to separate * The father cannot take up his position as authority and intervene effectively * The mother – does not listen to/support the father role – continues to take Hans into bed with her regardless of what the father says * At three years of age, he is at the phallic stage- pre-occupied by his widger. * Hans asks his mother if she possess a widger- she affirms Yes. Constant conflict about what he thinks/sees/is told. * Hans not only interested in widdlers but also touching his penis – infantile masturbation * Before his phobia mother threatens Hans that she will call Dr.A to cut it off at 3 ½.However he doesn’t care,......

Hans Og Grete

...der en fattig brændehugger med sin kone og sine to børn. Drengen hed Hans og pigen bed Grete. De havde kun lidt at bide og brænde og engang, da der var dyrtid i landet, vidste manden slet ikke, hvordan han skulle skaffe det daglige brød. Om aftenen, da han var kommet i seng og lå og tænkte over sin ulykke, sukkede han og sagde til sin kone: "Hvad skal der dog blive af os. Vi har slet ingen mad til børnene, knap nok til os selv." - "Ved du hvad," sagde konen, "i morgen tidlig følger vi børnene ind i den tætte skov, og tænder et bål der. Vi giver dem hver et stykke brød, og så går vi på arbejde. De kan ikke finde hjem igen, og så er vi af med dem." - "Nej, det gør jeg ikke," sagde manden, "jeg kan virkelig ikke nænne at lade mine børn blive ganske alene i den store skov. De bliver jo ædt af de vilde dyr." - "Du er et rigtigt tossehovede," sagde hans kone vredt, "vi dør jo allesammen af sult. Du kan såmænd godt begynde at tømre kisterne sammen." Hun blev ved at plage ham, til han gav efter. "Men det gør mig dog skrækkelig ondt for de stakkels børn," sagde han. De to børn havde ikke kunnet sove af sult og havde hørt, hvad deres mor havde sagt. Grete græd og sagde til Hans: "Nu er det ude med os." - "Vær stille, Grete," svarede han, "jeg skal nok finde på råd." Da de gamle var faldet i søvn, stod han op og listede sig ud. Månen skinnede klart, og de hvide kiselstene, der lå udenfor på vejen, lyste som sølv. Han stoppede sine lommer fulde af dem og gik hjem igen og sagde til......

Eysenck fought hard against the trend that personality involves biology and the environment. He figured out that all human traits can be broken down into two different categories- Neuroticism and Introversion-Extroversion. Neuroticism ranges from normal and fairly calm to people that are very nervous. This doesn't mean that someone is neurotic but people who fall into this category are more likely to develop neurotic disorders later in life. Extraversion-introversion, this term means shy, or quiet people versus outgoing or loud......

Prof Renato Constantino

...THE MISEDUCATION OF THE FILIPINO Prof. Renato Constantino Education is a vital weapon of a people striving for economic emancipation, political independence and cultural renaissance. We are such a people. Philippine education therefore must produce Filipinos who are aware of their country's problems, who understand the basic solution to these problems, and who care enough to have courage to work and sacrifice for their country's salvation. Nationalism in Education In recent years, in various sectors of our society, there have been nationalist stirrings which were crystallized and articulated by the late Claro M. Recto, There were jealous demands for the recognition of Philippine sovereignty on the Bases question. There were appeals for the correction of the iniquitous economic relations between the Philippines and the United States. For a time, Filipino businessmen and industrialists rallied around the banner of the FILIPINO FIRST policy, and various scholars and economists proposed economic emancipation as an intermediate goal for the nation. In the field of art, there have been signs of a new appreciation for our own culture. Indeed, there has been much nationalist activity in many areas of endeavor, but we have yet to hear of a well-organized campaign on the part of our educational leaders for nationalism in education. Although most of our educators are engaged in the lively debate on techniques and tools for the improved instructions, not one major educational leader......

...Beitrag aus ProFirma Professional Vom Controller zum CFO: Der Weg an die Spitze / 1 Controlling heute Schon seit längerer Zeit hält die Diskussion an um die Fragen: "Was wird aus den Controllern?" oder "Benötigt man das Controlling noch?" Daneben stehen Aussagen wie "Die Number-Cruncher werden durch die Management Accountants ersetzt" oder die Aufforderung von Prof. Weber, WHU Koblenz, zum Rollenwandel des Controllers: "Vom Bremser zum Innovator". Aus den Fragen lässt sich bereits ersehen, wie kontrovers die Diskussion geführt wird. Wenn wir uns die letzten Jahre anschauen, stellen wir fest, dass mehrere "Stürme" über die Controlling-Landschaft hinweggefegt sind. Dazu zählen z. B.: Globalisierung der Märkte, IFRS/US-GAAP, verbunden mit der Notwendigkeit der Einführung des Umsatzkostenverfahrens, Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Ausbau des Risk Management, Corporate Governance, Einstampfen der langfristigen Strategien und Umschwenken auf Businesspläne mit konkreten strategischen und operativen Inhalten, wertorientierte Unternehmensführung, Wissensbilanzen und zunehmende Bedeutung der Intangible Assets, Beyond Budgeting, verbunden mit der Entrümpelung der Prozesse, kontinuierliche Verbesserungsprozesse (KVP), Immer mehr neue Produkte bei deutlich verkürzten Produktlebenszyklen, Entwicklung der Märkte vom Hersteller- zum Käufermarkt und damit verbunden die Notwendigkeit, die Profit-Marge pro Kunden (Kundenwertbeitrag) zu kennen, steigende Bedeutung des Working......

Complexity and Individualism in Hans Christian Andersen’s “the Little Mermaid”

...Dustin Hingley Complexity and Individualism in Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” “The Little Mermaid” is a fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen about a young mermaid (girl) who longs to be part of another world; the result of having fallen in love with a prince and learning how to attain an immortal soul. Fairy tales like those by the Brothers Grimm or Charles Perrault tend to be quite simple, in the sense that they focus on general messages and lessons surrounding common initiations, or stages of life, that we all go through as human beings. “The Little Mermaid” is far more complex than any of the Grimms’ or Perrault’s tales. Andersen Provides the reader with a more individualized, realistic experience of life and its hardships, something not typically found in other tales. Through his highly refined detail and imagery, the symbol of a voiceless woman, and the little mermaid’s decision to sacrifice her happiness for the sake of the prince’s, Andersen shows us what it means to struggle in order to understand one’s identity. Andersen utilizes extensive detail to describe everything from gross manifestations of scenery to the subtleties of the young mermaid’s thoughts. By providing such detail Andersen allows the reader to see through the eyes of the little mermaid as she moves along on her quest. When we are introduced to the princess, whom the prince marries, she is described as having “delicate and glowing” skin and “long dark lashes”......

...SRTP Essay 1: A Statistical Analysis Report on the Seismic Appraisal of Classroom Buildings in Primary and High Schools Located in Shapingba . Zhou Shuyi, Meng Fei, Guo Han (College of Civil Engineering, Chongqing University, Chongqing, 401331) Abstract: This paper statistically analyses the earthquake resistance capacities of 107 Classroom Buildings in 107 primary and high schools located in Chongqing's Shapingba District; it further makes an analysis of various indicators, summarizes the most serious hidden risks of the buildings, and finally provides a statistical basis for seismic design. Key Words: Classroom Buildings, Seismic Appraisal, Reinforcement . Introduction In the 2008 Sichuan Earthquake, numerous buildings in the stricken area fell down, and many people died. As primary and high schools were generally located in heavily traveled high populated areas, Classroom Buildings in them were public ones with very high population density. So if a building collapsed, a considerable number of students and teachers would die and a large amount of property would be damaged. After the Earthquake, the State Council and the Ministry of Education immediately orders local governments to undertake an earthquake resistance appraisal of each building in each primary and each high school, and to take corrective measures with regard to the buildings that failed to meet the earthquake resistance standards correspondingly. In response thereto, in September 2009, the...

Hans Holbein the Younger

...My initial thoughts about Hans Holbein the Younger’s, The Ambassadors, is that it is a rich piece of art that has an important story to tell. The two stoic young men, seemingly dressed of royalty, stand with an indication of pride by a table of items. The painting gives the feeling that these items help to represent the importance of those standing next to them. The fabrics shown in the painting appear luxuriously heavy and to be of great quality, from the dark green curtain in the background to the fur and velvet-like coats donned by the men. The one aspect of work that most interests me in this piece are the finely arranged objects and the wonder of what they represent. On the table in this painting, the objects on display appear to be globes, musical instruments, books, a hymnal, and devices for measurement. Of all the objects in this art piece, the one that creates the most wonder and interest is the small and slightly hidden crucifix in the upper left portion of the painting and the large, distorted, skull-like object lying on the ground between the two men. With the abundance of material, fine detail, and symbolism this painting sparks curiosity of the meaning standing behind it all. The Ambassadors, by Hans Holbein the Younger is a painting created during the Renaissance Period in 1533. Historically, this time period is defined as a rebirth. It is a time of revival for literature, philosophy, architecture, Classical art, and learning (Mind Edge, Inc., 2015). The......

Han and Rome

...Jonathan Cano period 3 11/26/11 So what were the views of the Han and roman on technology how were they similar? how did they differ? There are many different ways to approach this theme. the government officials of china and Rome have their own views on this idea as the philosophers. These "powerhouses" also have another very important similarity they both were constructed at around the same time but had very little if any at all contact with each other. The way both places think is also a contributing factor on their view toward technology. Han china has philosophers and upperclassmen who don't necessarily advise the emperor but where pro-technology. The Romans also had philosophers and upperclassmen who played a part in describing the technology of this time and were not in the government. But both Rome and Han also had both upperclassmen or philosophers who were in the government that were either pro- or anti-technology. The Han’s view of technology was predominantly self-glorifying; with good reason as the Chinese invented everything from paper to acupuncture. The Han seemed to feel that technology was about helping the people. As demonstrated in the letter in document 1, the first goal of technology is to ward off disaster, in this case a flood. This demonstrates a concern for the people giving the impression that technology is there to aid the Chinese. This impression is increased by the obvious concern shown by Huan Guan in the second document, where......
