labels because Brown and West had acquired a recording studio in May 2004. Compass Records might spend between $15,000 and $25,000 to

That singing, dancing Tevye was originally a poor milkman from a Yiddish novella, and both of these Tevyes have their adherence to tradition tested in several ways.

In both stories, society all around Tevye is changing, but a huge discrepancy is seen that Tevye the Dairyman must stick to his tradition to prove something to external members of society, whereas Tevye from Fiddler is so adamant in his traditions because internally he cannot fathom going against everything he has believed in his entire life. A common phrase in Tevye the Dairyman's running monologue is "What would my enemies think?" Who exactly does he mean by enemies? Tevye sees his enemies as anybody trying to impose change upon his shtetl and his lifestyle. This includes the Czar, those performing the pogroms, or anyone else who is upsetting the once–peaceful balance he saw between the Jews and the rest of the world. When Tevye from Fiddler argues the pros and cons of Chava marrying Fyedka, he thinks to himself "Can I deny everything I believe in? How can I turn my back on my faith? If I try to bend that far I will break. On the other hand...No! There is no other hand!" He comes to this realization because of what he has known his whole life, not because he feels the need to prove anything to anyone except God. Both Tevyes prioritize their values in the following manner: religion first, then family values, and finally tradition.

Essay on A Long Way Down Suicide and humor are two words not often associated with each other, but Nick Hornby takes the pair on in his novel A Long Way Down, a dark comedy about suicide and life after a failed attempt. The book is narrated by four characters taking turns telling the story in their voice. The resulting hodgepodge gang includes Martin, a quasi celebrity who loses everything after an affair with a fifteen–year old girl; Maureen, the middle–aged mother of a severely disabled son; Jess, an obnoxious teenager living recklessly to avoid her reality of a missing sister; and JJ, the American and aspiring musician who's found himself lonely and alone in England.

Reaching the roof on their Valentine's reunion, Maureen observes that with the end of daylight savings time "even though it seemed dark when we were down on the street, up on the roof it felt as though there were some light left somewhere in the city" (Hornby 330). From the point in the novel when the group first descends from the roof, every aspect of the story is building towards this end, in which the hopeful theme is fully realized. Late in the night in which the group first meet, Martin jokes, "A trouble shared is a trouble halved, and because there are four of us, it's actually been quartered" (Hornby 102). Although said mockingly, Jess agrees and even with just hours of time together, this adage rings true for the desperate four. The importance of camaraderie and community in finding hope is persistent through the end of the story. After witnessing the man actually jump from the tower block, it is Martin who honestly says, "I'm not, you know. Ready to go solo just yet. It's funny because I don't actually like any of you very much. But you seem to be, I don't know What I need" (Hornby 240).

This coupled with her being used sexually by the Frenchman, who claimed to have "...fucked ahcahk, [her] spirit" (174), out of lustful capitalism creates a perfect storm of familiarity with the human condition within her. Niska realizes that the man–made society of the whites further pronounces the flaws of the human spirit, thereby differentiating between her culture and that of the wemistikoshiw. She explains this difference early on in the novel, by way of her epileptic visions: "No one is safe in such times, not even the Cree of the Mushkegowuk.

Children are welcome in public space as long as an adult controls how the child interacts. For instance, an adult of teacher is in control of how a child interacts in the sandbox, the playground and during recess. Once the child enters middle school and teen years, some autonomy develops which puts adults on edge as they want to control how youth behave in these spaces.

Employers conduct background checks on job applicants for several reasons. One reason may be to confirm their moral character. Another reason may be the desire to assess their risk of committing crimes that could cause somatic, monetary, and reputational damage to the company.

Pre–Qualified to get Disqualified Background checks hinder many qualified people from getting the positions they deserve. Many people have made mistakes in their youthful past but have since turned themselves around and now live a respectful life (BLUMSTEIN & NAKAMURA, 2009). Everyone has made a mistake in the past but after learning from their mistakes many have redeemed themselves and become better people. Criminal background checks reveal the individual's old criminal record and highlight that fact, which overshadows a law–abiding life led since (BLUMSTEIN & NAKAMURA, 2009). People have started families and want to set examples for their children. Many of these people have earned college degrees hoper for a better future. Degrees are the same no matter where you get them or who gets them. A degree doesn't reflect a hard worked education that you have succeeded not a pass that you are haunted by. A person with a past has to put forth the same amount of effort to get a degree as someone with no criminal history. If they've worked to obtain the degree then they should have the same opportunity regardless of their past.

During the middle of the song, this line sets the mood for the story and the presumed expectations of a teenage relationship. "The words are hushed, let's not get busted.

The townspeople uphold the tradition: young girls are match–maked and married off to men, often without choice. The play shows the resistance of Reb Tevye's three daughters to the tradition.

Fiddler on the Roof is a favorite among many musical theatre lovers because of its humor, inspiring plot, and underlying theme of faith and tradition. Fiddler on the Roof is set in a Jewish community in pre–revolutionary Russia, where every decision made by the residents of Anatevka, Ukraine, is centered in community and religious tradition. For poor dairy farmer Tevye and his wife Golde, these traditions include getting the town matchmaker, Yente, to find their five daughters suitable and wealthy husbands. Tzeitel, who is not yet twenty, doesn't like that Yente only sets her up with old men, and is secretly in love with a poor tailor named Motel. Motel doesn't believe Tevye would approve of a union between him and Tzeitel due to the economic status of both families, and because their union had not been arranged by the matchmaker. Another daughter, Hodel, understands the importance of these traditions better than her older sister Tzeitel.

Thus began a decades–long campaign against recorded music, sponsored by a succession of music critics, social theorists, and musicians. As one of those social theorists has argued, the real significance of the early phonograph was that it transformed the way people listened to music.

Most human Wendigos mostly retain their human features, and instead only experience the desire for loneliness and a craving for human flesh. Also common to stories, both in legend and those recorded by persons studying native tribes, was the belief that a person transforming into a Wendigo had lost permanent control over their own actions and that the only possible solution is death (Ridington 108).

The Polyphonic HMI Company is a subsidiary of Barcelona based Grupo AIA and was established in 2002 to market a tool that uses a process to "number crunch" music into its constituent mathematical characteristics, such as tempo, harmony, etc. Based on these, a dotted visual representation is created where songs with similar characteristics are positioned close to each other, thereby creating a mapping of known hit songs, that they call hit clusters (see Exhibit I). The extent to which new releases "fit" those clusters should indicate their hit potential.

Years later, when Plumb was at a restaurant, a man came up and said, "You're Charles Plumb! You flew jet fighters in Vietnam from the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. You were shot down! "How in the world did you know that?" questioned Plumb. "I packed your parachute," the man replied. Plumb was taken ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... How many leaders today are like Branson, sharing their 'limelight' with the team? Branson has developed a level of trust with his team by showing gratitude. Branson knows "who packs his parachutes" and makes time to acknowledge and recognise his employees. He shares that the secret to ensuring you continually show gratitude to your employees is by being a good listener, lavishing praise to your "parachute packers" for a job well done constantly and never openly criticising people. He adds, "To be a good leader, you've got to concentrate on bringing out the best in your people. People are no different than flowers – they need to be cared for and watered all the time if not they will shrivel and die. This is true whether it's a switchboard operator or the chairman." Do you really care about the people that 'pack your parachute'? Or do you only care to the extent that they deliver on the workload entrusted to them. Employees aren't just resources working in the business; they are the business. An effective business is not the product, service, supply chain or its magnificent business plan. It ultimately boils down to the group of enthusiastic and passionate people called employees who carry out your well–designed business plan.

  • 69. Medical Professionals Should Always Value A Patient 's... Medical professionals should always value a patient's ethical right to privacy and confidentiality. Under the HIPPA law, there are still concerns with the protection of patient privacy; therefore, healthcare professionals must confront the growing technological environment and find ways to increase access security, as well as discipline employees that violate a patient's privacy. Electronic health records can be beneficial to providers from a cost and efficiency standpoint, but are patients really better off with a paperless system?5 Privacy relates to people; confidentiality relates to data.

Healthcare providers are able to communicate easier via electronic medical records and under the HIPPA law it is illegal to release patient information to other non–healthcare professional parties. HIPPA states, "covered entities are required to protect the confidentiality or integrity of medical information stored in electric records.5 Confidentiality extends past privacy and protects identifiable data. So, what is considered confidential patient information? Confidential patient information consists of Protected Health Information (PHI). The PHI contains the patient's demographic information, social security number, diagnoses codes, medical record number, name of doctors, conversations between healthcare providers, billing information, images of the patient, and medications. Confidential information is seen electronically in a patient's medical record everyday and sometimes employees forget how important it is to keep a patient's information confidential. Mental and physical conditions, treatment plans and daily notes are documented in electronic medical records. The healthcare industry benefits from Electronic Medical Records (EMR). Electronic software is used to store and transfer patient health records. The advances in technology allow healthcare professionals to access and share patient medical history. Such a system may decrease health care costs, increase the quality of patient care, facilitate better departmental communication, create less paper confusion, ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 73. Fiddler On The Roof Sparknotes In Fiddler on the Roof, changing religious traditions affects how people find their soulmates because instead of the typical arranged marriage, people are looking for love. Yet, traditional religious arranged marriages could also sprout love. Fiddler on the Roof is a musical set in Russia, in a small Jewish town called Anatevka, in 1905, Tevye is the guide and narrator of his story of living in the town of Anatevka. His family and the entire town are Orthodox Jews and follow strict traditions. While, at the time, it was a Jewish custom for a matchmaker and parents to choose husbands for all of the daughters, Tevey's daughters have other ideas in mind. Three of the five daughters fall in love with men who do not quite fit the image that Tevye and his wife, Golde, (who were brought together by an arranged marriage) had in mind. While love wins in the end, watching the changing traditions and accepting them is very hard for Tevye. Throughout Fiddler on the Roof, Tevye examines his Jewish beliefs and questions how he can walk the pathway of his faith when the world around him is changing. Fiddler on the Roof uses the soulmate trope, exemplified by the idea ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

  • 75. Three Day Road Wandering Windigo of the Wemistikoshiw The novel Three Day Road can be viewed as an explicit indicator as to the importance of sustaining cultural identity, and the consequences associated with its absence from any aspect of human life. The tale provides a salient setting through which this spiritual malfeasance is brought about, with much of its content consisting of the supremacy of the wemistikoshiw, or white man, over the Aboriginals in World War 1. The novel's European setting manifests the primary cause for the spiritual bankruptcy of Elijah Weesacheejak, one of the story's central figures and the novel's primary thematic microcosm. Influenced deeply by Western ideals, he is said to be a windigo which, as explained by the aboriginal ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... An objectivist to the core, Niska represents an archetype of cultural wisdom, as described by Joseph Boyden: "I wanted her to be a strong woman who was doing this [being a woman of the bush] despite what everyone says about her and the toughness of her existence..." (Wylie 229). Niska is exposed to the horrors of the world at an early age, witnessing events such as her father's murder of one of her fellow Cree gone windigo (Boyden 45). This coupled with her being used sexually by the Frenchman, who claimed to have "...fucked ahcahk, [her] spirit" (174), out of lustful capitalism creates a perfect storm of familiarity with the human condition within her. Niska realizes that the man–made society of the whites further pronounces the flaws of the human spirit, thereby differentiating between her culture and that of the wemistikoshiw. She explains this difference early on in the novel, by way of her epileptic visions: "No one is safe in such times, not even the Cree of the Mushkegowuk. War touches everyone, and windigos spring from the earth" (49). In order to prevent the mingling of Aboriginal and European lifestyles, she completely refuses to submit to the will of the wemistikoshiw, even when forced to live in one of their residential schools as a young girl.

  • 77. Fiddler On The Roof Analysis Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick, and Joseph Stein's 1964 classic Fiddler on the Roof, previewed by Wright State University on November 1, 2017 under the direction of W. Stuart McDowell, highlighted the balancing act one family has with their time–honored traditions. With not only the encroachment of Russian influence, the small Ukrainian village of Anatevka had to learn how to keep their Jewish faith strong in the midst of changing times, power, and the whims of the lead's daughters. Inspired by the French painter Marc Chagall, the overall design supported the themes of the show and abstract style. Produced in a more presentational style, the lighting, costume, and set design were essential and effective in clarifying the focus of the production and worked well in conjunction. Matthew P. Benjamin's lighting gave focus to the production and supported the mood in each moment. Being the driving character for the show, focus was often given to Tevye, especially during his monologues. Even when other characters were on stage, including members of his family, the lights came down and Tevye would be under a tight focus during these moments like when Tzeitel and Motel express their intentions to get married in Act 1 and subsequently Perchik and Hodel's same wish in Act 2. Another time focus was given to the characters in a scene rather than the overall setting was during the Fruma– Sarah sequence.
