In 1974, he received his license to practice medicine before moving to the University of Heidelberg, where he completed his doctorate in the
Department of Anaesthetics and Emergency Medicine in 1975. He subsequently worked at the Institutes of Anatomy and Pathology. It was in
Heidelberg in 1977 where he invented the basic technologies for forced infusion of anatomical specimens with reactive plastics especially developed
for this purpose. It was also in Heidelberg where he founded BIODURâ„¢ in 1980 to market the respective polymers and equipment; finally, he
founded the Institute for Plastination in 1993. Since 1996 he has been a visiting professor at the School of Medicine in Dalian in China and Director of

Western Lowland Gorilla Essay
The Western Lowland Gorillas are critically endangered animals that require our protection and support. The Western Lowland Gorillas' greatest threat
is poaching the gorillas for food and the destruction of their natural habitat. Wildlife preserves are constructed, but the poaching continues due to
unstable governments and high price of the gorillas' meat. The governments in African countries must be stabilized to prevent poaching and destruction
of the Western Lowland Gorillas habitat or these animals will become extinct. The Western LowlandGorilla has very few natural predators in the wild.

As logging companies cut into the dense forests they open access to areas of the forests normally not accessible. This leads to increases in poaching
what has been labeled as "Bush Meat" which is then sold to villages (World of Wildlife). In an article published in the New York Times in 2012
Elizabeth L Bennett PhD Vice President forSpecies Conservation at the Wildlife Conservation Society wrote that some protected areas with arm
patrols such as the have seen increases in population. Having park rangers armed on patrol obviously works to help stop the poaching but once
again only addresses a symptom of a larger systemic problem and further more the residents of these countries require food to survive. Farming in
Africa is inadequate and inefficient. The fertility of the soil is becoming depleted and severely reducing the amount of crops from each harvest
(Ayieko). This problem is due to over farming the land and not allowing for crop rotation to replenish the nutrients in the soil. This is a practice that
is used by most farmers around the globe. Continuing on this trend will risk the land becoming barren and unable to support plant life. This will not
only affect farmers but the entire ecosystem. Plant life will not flourish which will lead to more deforestation and animals that feed on plant life, such
as the Western Lowland Gorilla, will have less plants and fruits to eat putting the Gorillas more at risk. Field rotation must be used, but due to
increased demand for food, farmers have little

The ADA Case Study
The ADA has three requirements for a disability, and employee if covered under the ADA if they meet just one of the requirements;
1.A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one of more major life actives
2.A record of such an impairment
3.Being regarded as having such an impairment
Even with this broad definition, pregnancy simply isn't a disability and a pregnant employee wouldn't be guaranteed protection. In 2008 the ADAAA
was introduced which made it easier for pregnant women who suffered pregnancy related disabilities to establish they do have disabilities and are
entitled to reasonable accommodations under the ADA (Eeoc.gov, 2017). These accommodations would cover Abby's need to have a 10lb lifting

It goes on to state that it is the burden of the employer to demonstrate a reason they cannot reasonably accommodate an employee's beliefs and practices
without undue hardships (Walsh, 2014).
Gunther would first need to establish prima facie of failure to reasonably accommodate religion.
1.The existence of a sincere religious belief or practice that conflicts with an employment requirement
2.The employer was informed of the conflicting belief or practice
3.The employee or applicant suffered an adverse employment outcome because of adhering to the religious belief or practice
Once Gunther established prima facie, Central Perk would have to show the following:
1.A reasonable accommodation was offered but not accepted
2.No reasonable accommodation without undue hardship was available" (Walsh, 2014)
The existence of a sincere religious belief or practice that conflicts with an employment requirement
Even though Kemet is not a widely known religion, Gunther has demonstrated the sincere religious belief required by the EEOC. The tattoos he has are
required by his religion and any concealment of the tattoos runs contrary to its belief system.
The employer was informed of the conflicting belief or practice
Gunther's tattoos have never been discussed with his current manager, which indicates he never informed Central Perk of the possible conflict.

Gunther Von Hagen's Plastinates
Plastination is a process of preserving tissue by embedding tissues with synthetic materials such as silicone polymers to produce dry, odorless, easy
to handle, and non hazardous specimens ideal for teaching anatomy, pathology, radiology, and surgery. They are also long lasting so less cadavers
are required for learning. It was invented by Professor Gunther Von Hagens, a German born Physician and Anatomist. He discovered this process in
1977 experimenting with kidney slices. The technique replaces blood, fat, water, and other fluids with plastic, enabling corpse tissue to be preserved
for centuries. Von Hagens displays his plastinates in a manner in which all internal organs, nerves, blood vessels, and bones can be viewed by the

Trickster In Native American Literature
Literature does not always come in a written form. Native American literature, for example, was mainly an oral form of storytelling. This form of
literature often includes certain characteristics throughout the story. These characteristics range from ways that the stories were told to what the stories
include or involve. One common characteristic is in the way the Native Americans presented the stories. The storyteller regularly used certain incidents
multipliable times (Gunther, 2016). The account of an incident would often be told over and over again for definite number of times (Gunther, 2016).
How many times the description took place generally depended on the number that was related with a sacred part of the culture (Gunther, 2016). For...

One of these motifs involve, a young man experiences a ritual initiation and ultimately he achieves an heroic act (Millisaw, n.d.). Most of the time, the
man was born with a divine background or he may have mixed parentage (Millisaw, n.d.). Another common characteristic found throughout Native
American tribes is the trickster (Millisaw, n.d.). For example, in the Lakota Tribe, a spider is used to represent the tricker (Millisaw, n.d.). While in the
Kiowa tribe, the trickster appears as a coyote (Millisaw, n.d.). However, Native American literature is not only similar throughout Native American
tribes, but it also shares characteristics with African literature as well. According to Gloria Fiero, African folklore and Native American myths share the
feature of having heroes or heroines that work to control nature (2015). Also, another feature that is shared between African and Native American
literature is that the heroes and/or trickers may be humans that have been transformed into animals or vice–versa (Fiero, 2015). I find this interesting as

Comparison Of Nibelungenlied Savagery And Good Manners
In The Nibelungenlied savagery and good manners have an integral role in the interactions between characters and the epic as a whole. Proper
etiquette is emphasized within the medieval culture, it is used as a sign of respect and admiration to one's superior or equal. However, Savagery is
often either celebrated or discounted completely. There are many instances within the epic when an event or a character's actions could be perceived as
ignoble or undignified, usually, such acts are frowned upon in medieval literature. However, in TheNibelungenlied these acts are not only acceptable,
in certain instances, they are even praised. Good manners are often used by characters within the epic in order to gain some sort of political or
strategical advantage. When Siegfried first ventures to Burgundy, he immediately rushes into kingdom and challenges kingGunther. Instead of
participating in war, Gunther decides that appeasing Siegfried and making an ally of him would be significantly more productive than battling him

German Medieval Literature: Hildebrandslied
In each text of the following German medieval literature: "Hildebranslied," "Nibelungenlied" and Tristan courtly virtues of muot, ГЄre, and triuwe are
present and have importance within the context which either make a situation acceptable or not. These virtues make characters within each text either
admirable or looked down upon. It also makes meaning of the text complex rather than one–sided. Although all virtues are present and emphasized,
equal value is not given to the virtues in all texts except for ГЄre. In "Hildebrandslied," the character that displays ГЄre in an extreme situation is
Hildebrand. The conflict of the passage is a father who knows he must battle his son in the name of triuwe and especially ГЄre. While Hildebrand has
knowledge that his opponent is his son, his son Hadubrand did not recognize Hildebrand as his father because he believes his father is dead from
battle. (27–29) Although not directly mentioned, muot is also present through the description of both Hildebrand and Hadubrand as champions. (2)
Mental strength is shown through Hadubrand calling Hildebrand "utterly cunning." (38) However in "Hildebranslied," muot is not as valued as triuwe
and particularly ГЄre. As ГЄre was most valued because although Hildebrand had knowledge of his son, he still has to fighting his opponent to guard

In the book Stiff, cadavers are used in different areas and kinds of research. As I read, I was surprised to see that there were so many unique ways
that cadavers are used. The most surprising thing that I read was that cadavers were used as art. This book was not only interesting, but enlightening
as well. It is unbelievable how useful cadavers have been in helping the living in so many different ways. After reading Stiff, it was surprising to
discover that there are so many different ways that cadavers can be used. For example, cadavers are used to see the different stages of decomposition, as

Gunther Schuller's Music For Brass Ensemble
In the second movement of his Music for Brass Quintet, Gunther Schuller utilizes unique articulations, rhythmic variance, and different combinations
of mutes resulting in tension built from the swiftly changing textures. Throughout the movement Schuller takes advantage of brass instruments ability
to double and triple tongue quickly. As seen in measure 3, he sets up thetrumpet, horn, and trombone to tongue at different speeds while raising in
dynamic. Due to the similar timbre of these instruments, the result is an unstable homophonic texture that sounds aggressive. Schuller then has the
instruments jump down to a piano dynamic. This decision is risky, due to the fact that all of the instruments are entering, and that it will be difficult...

The first instance is in measure 46, where all but the horn removes their mutes. While it would be assumed that the only muted voice would be the
foreground of the section, the opposite is presented here. The horn continues the ostinato figure from the previous figure. Overall this allows for the
rest of the ensemble to act as the solo voices collectively, and allows the rhythmic variance they have against the horn to stand out. In measure 68 we
see the opposite combination used, where everyone is muted except for the tuba. This was likely done so that the tuba would have a distinct difference
in color comparatively. This is necessary for its melodic line to cut through the ensemble. The end of the piece features the only change in the muted
horn in the movement. In measure 73 Schuller marks the horn to play half muted. This technique results in a hold unstable sound, perfect for summing
up the themes of the movement.
In Gunther Schuller's second movement of his Music for Brass Quintet, he utilizes brass instruments' range, articulations, and muting abilities to create

Sven's Swiss Miss
I let the curled shavings fall to the frozen, inky ground, creating a heap of milky white scraps. My blade easily carves through the wood, like a
knife going through soft butter. A wolf starts howling in the woods, distorts my concentration and the blade jams into my finger. "Verdammt!" I
swear under my breath. A carmine liquid seeps out of my wound. I suck on my finger in order to stop the profusive bleeding. I sigh and gaze across
the horizon. A cascade of fiery red and flamboyant orange spills out from the sides of the Matterhorn as the sun leisurely sinks below the ice–kissed
landscape. I raise to my feet and stretch out my cramped legs. I bend down to pick up my scraps and carving which I then cram into my wool coat.
I latch my skis on and grab my poles. Leaning over the edge of the cliff face, I peer down and see a ten foot drop below. There is about six feet of
snow, I estimate. I slide backward and push off, my body is flat and leaning forward. The wind whips through my hair and a burst of adrenaline
pumps through my veins. My skis land softly on the snow and I go flying down the mountain, traversing through bushes and trees. The terrain evens
out a bit and I can now see the glimmering lights of Zermatt. I turn to the left in order to follow a trail well–covered by trees. I glide, occasionally

Estrogen Therapy Essay
The idea of using large doses of estrogen to permanently seal the epiphyseal, or growth plates began in the 1940's and 1950's. It was originally used
to treat children with acromegaly, or excessive growth disorder caused by the pituitary gland producing excessive growth hormone, GH.(6) When the
growth plates are closed at an early age it can reduce a height by several inches. In 2006, the intentions of this type of treatment drastically changed.
Douglas Diekema, who was the director of education at the Treuman Katz Center for Pediatric Bioethics at the Seattle Children's Hospital, and Daniel
Gunther, a endocrinologist, announced in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine a new use of estrogen therapy. This time though, it was for

It was argued how the health care system is moving towards fully adopting evidence based medicine, yet Gunther and Deikema offered no evidence that
Ashely or any other child would actually benefit from the treatment. Estrogen therapy for growth attenuation is considered a new innovative therapy or
off–label treatment using an approved drug, but the AAIDD claims there have be no other studies to date that have tracked these outcomes, including
complications, and long term effects of its use. (7) The National Catholic Partnership on Disability put emphasis on the risks of thrombosis and
seizures associated with high estrogen levels and the lack of rigorous clinical trials testing this treatment. There is also concern for the additional health
risks related to weight gain and short stature and the effects that will come from it. Lastly, the article touched on the slippery slope of medical decision
making. Once the decision was made to start estrogen therapy and compromise growth, it then became incredibly easier for doctors and parents to
partake in an invasive hysterectomy without considering the moral and ethical objections.

anatomical structures. The second step, removal of body fat and water, is a process which water and soluble fats are dissolved from the body by

25). An explanation of this image is that you believe it is possible to shape people; you believe in them and treat them as a living person, who has
feelings and opinions. It is also believed that you can change these people through for example rewards (Palmer & Dunford, 2009, p. 25). Gunther
still has a goal, but now he believes in high turnover as a good thing. He wants to have motivated and good staff, and changed the view of failure to
success. This means he still believes in an outcome but maybe more a partially intended outcome when not all intentions with the changes are
achievable (Palmer & Dunford, 2009, p. 26). This because he acknowledged that itВґs hard
to control all people in the organization in the way you want to. This is compatible with the interpreter image. Where you do believe in a partially
intended outcome and that you can create a shared meaning of the situation for the organizational members (Palmer & Dunford, 2009, p. 31).
Conclusion
Going from a control approach on change Gunther reached a more shaping approach; that people and organization doesnВґt change exactly in the way
you want them to. From the director image of change when Gunther believed in a controlled change and a positive outcome, to a more accepting
view; that a change often does not go perfect all the way. He more reached the area of an interpreter. Where you believe in making sense for both

Oster Point By Cy Gunther: A Summary
Stories about zombies are rarely just about zombies. They often explore deeper questions of morality and the human condition. The responses of the
characters to their environment in zombie literature allows the reader to explore concepts of ethics that might otherwise be distasteful or disturbing
(Goldberg, Gould, & Meslow, 2012). It is easy at times to overlook these lessons while reveling in the gore and drama of the story, but is done so to
the reader's loss. The struggles of the characters forces the reader to question who is less human, the zombies, or those humans who have fallen to
depths of depravity that would be unimaginable to their former selves. The novella "Oster Point" by Cy Gunther is no exception to this rule. While the
story contains many descriptions about encounters with the undead, it is the events that occur around these encounters that really matter. The reader is
also forced to question themselves on how far they would go, and what morals they would compromise, to protect those they love, and their own self.
"Oster Point' derives its title from a New England town with a lighthouse that a small detachment of United States Marines find themselves securing as

Throughout this semester all of the assigned texts have relationships between characters. There was female–female,male–female,and male–male

on male–male groupings and how their relationships were written and interpreted. Since there are many different pairs to choose from I will be

Harry Gunther : A Short Story
He promised me a future better than the one I already had. With his snow–like skin and raven–colored hair, a man–who I would later find his name to
be Harry Gunther–coaxed me with a bright future and high hopes one July evening. A future that died in a slave pen, and hopes that faded when a
man crueler than the devil claimed as his own. I was drying clothes out in the Smith's front yard when Mr. Gunther approached me in a black suit and
tobacco–stained smile. Smiles like those were not easily directed towards me. Being born a black girl, I was used to having wary looks thrown my
way or a racial slur uttered through gritted teeth. The latter most especially after Momma died due to a fever five years ago when ten, and the Smiths,
compassionate and caring, took me in as one of their own in exchange for helping them around the house. When Momma got pregnant with me and
escaped the brutal South, Henry and Jenny Smith took her in, as well.
Momma used to tell me stories about how harsh and cruel those white men were, and how they used to beat her when she "disobeyed". That was all
they were–mere stories left up to the imagination. Stories that were never supposed be tangible, because she escaped to Philadelphia so I could be free.

What Are The Similarities Between Nibelungenlied And Parzival
Nibelungenlied and Parzival
Although both the Nibelungenlied and Parzival were composed around the same time (c. 1200), they are vastly different in certain respects–namely
concerning the matters of diplomacy, redemption, revenge, and deceit. Some striking similarities do exist among the two texts–concepts of honor
(ГЄre), loyalty (triuwe), moderation (mГўze) and knightly deeds (Гўventiure) are valued highly by both societies. However, each notion is
accomplished through different measures in each work. In fact, societal values are taken more to the extreme in Nibelungenlied, and deceit is often used
to obtain them.
For example, honor manifests itself similarly in each work, but is acted on to a different extent. In both ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
For this reason, Parzival is a much more Christian composition.
More specifically, consider first the incidents surrounding Siegfried's death, which stem from a loss of honor, but point out other important societal
values in the Nibelungenlied. Gunther falsely claims, with Siegfried's approval, that Siegfried is his vassal in order to impress Brunhilde. Siegfried
then helps Gunther with the cloak of invisibility to complete tasks of strength, which eventually win Brunhilde. These are deceptions number one
and two, and are especially heinous since they occur during a wooing expedition. The third deception of Brunhilde comes about when Siegfried
subdues her so that she will sleep with Gunther in the future. The concept of loyalty to one's spouse and to womankind in the world of Parzival
forbids any dishonesty in courting endeavors, or any deceit to one's wife. Moreover, nobody openly lies about rank, or social status, because it is far
too important of a concept. Gawan is perhaps the only character in Parzival who is not entirely honest about his heritage, when he overcomes the
Castle of Wonders and frees his relatives. However, his intentions are good–he simply wants to reunite King Arthur to his relatives in a sort of surprise
manner, and for that reason any wrong he causes through his silence is almost immediately ameliorated.

In the state of Texas, the phrase "bigger is better" is often used; however, that is not the case when it comes to the size of the state's government.
Texas emphasizes power within local government, allowing the voices of citizens to have a larger role in influencing state legislature. Granting
autonomy to local government has established a better relationship between citizens and the legislative body. This directly reflects Texas's political
stance against large governments due to the fact that local governments are less likely to be influenced by outside parties such as corporations that
hold more money and greater lobbying power. I feel as if the lack of influence interest groups play in Texas government compared to the national

Dr. Otto Gunther Octavius, known as Doctor Octopus, is a supervillain that has been in comic books published by Marvel Comics. He first appeared
in Amazing Spider–Man #3 which was released July, 1963 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Otto Octavius was raised in an oppressive household, with
an overprotective mother, and a harsh, abusive father. His mother encouraged the young Otto, already a good student, to push himself in school, in
the hopes that he would have a better life than his factory worker father. Otto was awarded a scholarship for university, shortly before his father died
in a workplace accident. Becoming obsessed with schoolwork after his father's death, Otto applied himself even harder to his studies in science. He
graduated and got work with an engineering firm, soon becoming a respected nuclear physicist and research consultant, as well as working as an
inventor and lecturer. He soon developed a remarkable invention– a chest harness that connected the wearer to four mechanical arms. This invention
earned him a new nickname: Doctor Octopus. Around this time, he became involved with a fellow researcher, Mary Alice Anders, to whom he

Siegfried vs Beowulf Essay examples
"Any relations in a social order will endure, if there is infused into them some of that spirit of human sympathy which qualifies life for immortality."
–George William Russell
Homer defines a hero as one who acquires and maintains honor through victory in battle while embracing a highly individualistic attitude. Homer's epic
warriors were self–interested in order to preserve their honor and to acquire fame––the currency used by the hero to achieve immortality. Heroes of this
archetype often show a neglectful disregard for the lives of their warriors and supporting cast. This is symptomatic of their obsession with acquiring
honor over building relationships (Dunkle). But how can a hero protect his fame ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Following the structure of the Homeric hero, Beowulf's only concern is becoming king and dying gloriously in battle to get into Valhalla, a heaven
reserved for the brave warriors who died fighting in combat. He is so blinded by his goals that he discounts the well–being of his men.
This is exemplified in the scene where Beowulf recounts his battle with Grendel to King Hrothgar. He fails to mention that one of his men played the
role of the sacrificial lamb, while the others assisted in defeating the beast–the whole process was a joint effort. However, for the 20 lines of his
recount, he emphasizes how "pleased" he is with Grendel writhing from pain, beaten by his bare hands (Heaney line 957–977). He is insinuating that
he alone is responsible for the creature's death. The only time the martyr is mentioned is when the chieftain gifting Beowulf's men reveals that "one
man's daring prevented the doom [of killing more of the men]" (Heaney line 1056). This episode suggests that Beowulf is indifferent to the deaths of
even those who are supposedly closest to him, as he remains emotionally undamaged while boasting about his defeat. His lack of sympathy disables
him from creating a substantial bridge between him and his men. Siegfried, on the other hand, desires human interaction. Unlike Beowulf, he has an
affinity for securing his relationships with others by developing strong loyalties

The Western Lowland Gorillas' greatest threat is poaching the gorillas for food and the destruction of their natural habitat.

Having park rangers armed on patrol obviously works to help stop the poaching but once again only addresses a symptom of a larger systemic problem and further more the residents of these countries require food to survive. Farming in Africa is inadequate and inefficient. The fertility of the soil is becoming depleted and severely reducing the amount of crops from each harvest (Ayieko). This problem is due to over farming the land and not allowing for crop rotation to replenish the nutrients in the soil. This is a practice that is used by most farmers around the globe. Continuing on this trend will risk the land becoming barren and unable to support plant life. This will not only affect farmers but the entire ecosystem. Plant life will not flourish which will lead to more deforestation and animals that feed on plant life, such as the Western Lowland Gorilla, will have less plants and fruits to eat putting the Gorillas more at risk. Field rotation must be used, but due to increased demand for food, farmers have little ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 8. Gunther Kress Summary Gunther Kress states in "Multimodal Discourse Analysis" that the goal of multimodal discourse analysis (MMDA) is to understand the actual meaning and relationship of how meaning is created (175). Discourse analysis is very broad and in order to understand MMDA, Kress divides the chapter up into subsections with questions for titles. In the first subsection Kress states how the most common issues are partiality of language, logics and affordances of modes, rhetoric, selection and design, and recognition of semiotic work (177).

  • 9. Death Be Not Proud By John Gunther Death Be Not Proud by John Gunther was an astounding book. Granted, it was a bit depressing, but it was a great book because I could relate so closely to the author. The trial of a loved one going through cancer is something I can relate to. Fortunately, my story turns out a little bit better than Johnny's did. This book took me on a roller coaster of emotions. I felt like I was connected with the book and so I naturally got really excited when Johnny got better, and really sad when his health declined. I know what it feels like to watch a loved one go through something like that.

This form of literature often includes certain characteristics throughout the story. These characteristics range from ways that the stories were told to what the stories include or involve. One common characteristic is in the way the Native Americans presented the stories. The storyteller regularly used certain incidents multipliable times (Gunther, 2016). The account of an incident would often be told over and over again for definite number of times (Gunther, 2016).

Another common characteristic found throughout Native American tribes is the trickster (Millisaw, n.d.). For example, in the Lakota Tribe, a spider is used to represent the tricker (Millisaw, n.d.). While in the Kiowa tribe, the trickster appears as a coyote (Millisaw, n.d.).

In an instant, two of his children, his wife, and their unborn child were killed in the horrific accident. In his own words, "I was ready for death. I tried to will myself to pass out; I wanted to succumb to the process of having my spirit leave my body.

Proper etiquette is emphasized within the medieval culture, it is used as a sign of respect and admiration to one's superior or equal. However, Savagery is often either celebrated or discounted completely. There are many instances within the epic when an event or a character's actions could be perceived as ignoble or undignified, usually, such acts are frowned upon in medieval literature. However, in TheNibelungenlied these acts are not only acceptable, in certain instances, they are even praised. Good manners are often used by characters within the epic in order to gain some sort of political or strategical advantage.

While it would be assumed that the only muted voice would be the foreground of the section, the opposite is presented here. The horn continues the ostinato figure from the previous figure. Overall this allows for the rest of the ensemble to act as the solo voices collectively, and allows the rhythmic variance they have against the horn to stand out. In measure 68 we see the opposite combination used, where everyone is muted except for the tuba. This was likely done so that the tuba would have a distinct difference in color comparatively. This is necessary for its melodic line to cut through the ensemble. The end of the piece features the only change in the muted horn in the movement.

An explanation of this image is that you believe it is possible to shape people; you believe in them and treat them as a living person, who has feelings and opinions. It is also believed that you can change these people through for example rewards (Palmer & Dunford, 2009, p. 25). Gunther still has a goal, but now he believes in high turnover as a good thing. He wants to have motivated and good staff, and changed the view of failure to success. This means he still believes in an outcome but maybe more a partially intended outcome when not all intentions with the changes are achievable (Palmer & Dunford, 2009, p. 26).

The responses of the characters to their environment in zombie literature allows the reader to explore concepts of ethics that might otherwise be distasteful or disturbing (Goldberg, Gould, & Meslow, 2012). It is easy at times to overlook these lessons while reveling in the gore and drama of the story, but is done so to the reader's loss.

  • 32. Harry Gunther : A Short Story He promised me a future better than the one I already had. With his snow–like skin and raven–colored hair, a man–who I would later find his name to be Harry Gunther–coaxed me with a bright future and high hopes one July evening. A future that died in a slave pen, and hopes that faded when a man crueler than the devil claimed as his own. I was drying clothes out in the Smith's front yard when Mr. Gunther approached me in a black suit and tobacco–stained smile. Smiles like those were not easily directed towards me. Being born a black girl, I was used to having wary looks thrown my way or a racial slur uttered through gritted teeth. The latter most especially after Momma died due to a fever five years ago when ten, and the Smiths, compassionate and caring, took me in as one of their own in exchange for helping them around the house. When Momma got pregnant with me and escaped the brutal South, Henry and Jenny Smith took her in, as well. Momma used to tell me stories about how harsh and cruel those white men were, and how they used to beat her when she "disobeyed". That was all they were–mere stories left up to the imagination. Stories that were never supposed be tangible, because she escaped to Philadelphia so I could be free. Mr. Gunther stood in front of me with the sun hitting his smiling face. "What's your name?" he asked. A simple question laced with wicked intentions that would lead to much devastation. I did not respond him, for I did not know how to. For the most ...

  • 33. What Are The Similarities Between Nibelungenlied And Parzival Nibelungenlied and Parzival Although both the Nibelungenlied and Parzival were composed around the same time (c. 1200), they are vastly different in certain respects–namely concerning the matters of diplomacy, redemption, revenge, and deceit. Some striking similarities do exist among the two texts–concepts of honor (ГЄre), loyalty (triuwe), moderation (mГўze) and knightly deeds (Гўventiure) are valued highly by both societies. However, each notion is accomplished through different measures in each work. In fact, societal values are taken more to the extreme in Nibelungenlied, and deceit is often used to obtain them. For example, honor manifests itself similarly in each work, but is acted on to a different extent. In both ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... For this reason, Parzival is a much more Christian composition. More specifically, consider first the incidents surrounding Siegfried's death, which stem from a loss of honor, but point out other important societal values in the Nibelungenlied. Gunther falsely claims, with Siegfried's approval, that Siegfried is his vassal in order to impress Brunhilde. Siegfried then helps Gunther with the cloak of invisibility to complete tasks of strength, which eventually win Brunhilde. These are deceptions number one and two, and are especially heinous since they occur during a wooing expedition. The third deception of Brunhilde comes about when Siegfried subdues her so that she will sleep with Gunther in the future. The concept of loyalty to one's spouse and to womankind in the world of Parzival forbids any dishonesty in courting endeavors, or any deceit to one's wife. Moreover, nobody openly lies about rank, or social status, because it is far too important of a concept. Gawan is perhaps the only character in Parzival who is not entirely honest about his heritage, when he overcomes the Castle of Wonders and frees his relatives. However, his intentions are good–he simply wants to reunite King Arthur to his relatives in a sort of surprise manner, and for that reason any wrong he causes through his silence is almost immediately ameliorated. Finally, the laws governing Гўventiure do not allow anyone who uses tricks to win a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

This quote by John Gunther, author of Inside U.S.A., reflects the pride I have for my great home state of Texas. Being a Texan means more than just saying one lives in Texas; it is the sense of opportunity and power, which promotes individualism and acts as the common identifier for all walks of life by instilling the feelings of belonging and pride. If presented with the decision to choose between being an American or Texan, one or the other, then my answer would be a quick 'Texan' as if that should even be a question.

Little government interference is what Texans seek as a whole, and I agree with that goal. I enjoy being able to have a variety of family–owned restaurants and shops to experience, and it is made possible by the Texas government respecting the rights of small business owners. Not having to eat and shop at chain businesses alone allows me to support local citizen businesses. In the state of Texas, the phrase "bigger is better" is often used; however, that is not the case when it comes to the size of the state's government. Texas emphasizes power within local government, allowing the voices of citizens to have a larger role in influencing state legislature. Granting autonomy to local government has established a better relationship between citizens and the legislative body. This directly reflects Texas's political stance against large governments due to the fact that local governments are less likely to be influenced by outside parties such as corporations that hold more money and greater lobbying power. I feel as if the lack of influence interest groups play in Texas government compared to the national government reflects a greater sense of democracy and allows the majority opinion of all citizens to be presented rather than a select group of interests. The traditionalistic influence religion has on Texas and its government is something I support and appreciate as a citizen. I am not considered to be in ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

One of the many types of censorship takes place on the airwaves. Comedians, George Carlin, Howard Stern, and Mncow Muller had an enormous effect on the ideals of censorship in this era, trying to prove that the FCC had no right to censor radio airwaves.

  • 41. Siegfried vs Beowulf Essay examples "Any relations in a social order will endure, if there is infused into them some of that spirit of human sympathy which qualifies life for immortality." –George William Russell Homer defines a hero as one who acquires and maintains honor through victory in battle while embracing a highly individualistic attitude. Homer's epic warriors were self–interested in order to preserve their honor and to acquire fame––the currency used by the hero to achieve immortality. Heroes of this archetype often show a neglectful disregard for the lives of their warriors and supporting cast. This is symptomatic of their obsession with acquiring honor over building relationships (Dunkle). But how can a hero protect his fame ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Following the structure of the Homeric hero, Beowulf's only concern is becoming king and dying gloriously in battle to get into Valhalla, a heaven reserved for the brave warriors who died fighting in combat. He is so blinded by his goals that he discounts the well–being of his men. This is exemplified in the scene where Beowulf recounts his battle with Grendel to King Hrothgar. He fails to mention that one of his men played the role of the sacrificial lamb, while the others assisted in defeating the beast–the whole process was a joint effort. However, for the 20 lines of his recount, he emphasizes how "pleased" he is with Grendel writhing from pain, beaten by his bare hands (Heaney line 957–977). He is insinuating that he alone is responsible for the creature's death. The only time the martyr is mentioned is when the chieftain gifting Beowulf's men reveals that "one man's daring prevented the doom [of killing more of the men]" (Heaney line 1056). This episode suggests that Beowulf is indifferent to the deaths of even those who are supposedly closest to him, as he remains emotionally undamaged while boasting about his defeat. His lack of sympathy disables him from creating a substantial bridge between him and his men. Siegfried, on the other hand, desires human interaction. Unlike Beowulf, he has an affinity for securing his relationships with others by developing strong loyalties ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
