If the character is in the play, what other things can the character do than act and be apart of the play. The dialogue assists the character into what he or she should be doing. The place and timing on when and where the characters appear is very important. Not only does settings sets the place and time for the play, it also shows the characters background information on where they come from. Friedrich Durrenmatt uses both these literary techniques to help understand the characters. The word ‘minor’ refers to something or it could also be someone that is not as important but when having to take the word ‘minor’ and put it in front of the word ‘character’ we would have minor characters. Thus, if labeling the characters minor and major would it have an affect on how we as reader see the characters and if the character is a minor character, would it make any difference if the character were taken out of the play? Usually when thinking about the significance of a character, the main character is more significant than any other characters. However, some minor characters could also hold a significant role. In many television series the killer or the guilty ones are always the ones who watches from the sidewalks or the ones that seems to be too innocent to do it, but don’t let their behavior fool you.

Federal Sentencing Guidelines Overall Fairness Defendant #1: Judge, I believe the sentence of Manny Ramirez serves the interest of justice because it is enough time being in jail to pay the consequences for his actions. Ramirez was given multiple chances of shortened sentences and more probation time for minor offenses. Obviously, Mr. Ramirez did not learn his lesson the first time and he eventually got caught at the wrong time with his current offense. Based on the following actions, judge, the sentence of 21-27 months is fair enough to me and serves justice for what crimes he committed. Defendant #2: Judge, the sentence of Martha Stewart definitely serves the interest of justice based upon the seriousness......

After driving around looking for the courthouse; I find a parking spot, and enter the Caddo Parish Courthouse just before 9 a.m. Through the security check point I went, and on to the information desk, where I was told to head upstairs and talk with the bailiffs. Upon discussing with the bailiffs which court room would provide the most interesting cases; they informed me to try court room H. When asked why that particular room, the bailiff insisted that they would all be similar, and court room H was to start shortly. As I entered court room H and looked around and then took a seat. At this time there were only two other people sitting in the gallery. Behind the bar stood the prosecutors, defense attorneys, bailiff, court reporter, and a female police officer there to testify. Not long after I sat down, the female prosecutor turned around and asked me what I was here for. When I told her I was a student there to observe for class, she quickly turned around and went back to her paperwork. Nine o‘clock rolled by and it appeared as court would not be starting anytime soon. So as I sat there and waited, I couldn’t help but ease drop in on what the two prosecutors were talking about.

...system of courts seeks to resolve conflict arising out of the operation of laws; this involves the application of remedies and the retribution of offenders. Trinidad and Tobago operates by a traditional common law legal system based on that of the United Kingdom. The concept of precedent applies and the judgements of the Supreme Court and Judicial Committee of the Privy Council are requisite; those of the United Kindgom and Commonwealth are highly persuasive.

The Magistrates’ court is a lower court handling both civil and criminal matters. Some civil matters are decided here but all criminal proceedings begin in a Magistrates’ court and most will end there. This lower court also facilitates preliminary enquiries into severe criminal matters to determine whether a prima facie case has been formed against the accused for indictment in the High Court. Civil matters heard in the Magistrates’ court have a monetary value limit of $15,000, claims for more than this must be heard in the High Court.

...Xinghua Huang Adrian Gaskins BWS 151 Section A October 5, 2015 Visit museum I visited the art museum with my classmates and professor on Wednesday in order to understand better about the black world cultures. It was my first time to go there in campus. The moment I arrived there, I found that the building was special. When we walked into it, there was a big painting in front of us. And then there were several rooms to show different kinds objects. There was an area for collecting paintings. There was another area to store camera in the old times. In a word, all the things in it had a long history. After a short Introduction, we are separated to three groups. My group needed to analysis a big painting which had two cycles. The two cycles contained a sentence, that is, “Just as in the Anatomy of Man, Every Nation Must Have Its Hind Part”. There are few red stars and four different colors in the center. The background of the painting was black and it had a big title “Alabama”. I discussed with my groups. Then I thought that the stars in the center insinuated some places. The sentence in the cycles may stand for freedom spirt of black people. Finally, I learned many things from professions. I knew that most people watch each artwork in 7 seconds. We should watch it longer time and then think deeply. This is the most significant thing I learned in this amazon class....

...Study of Manufacturing of Turbine Blades A Summer Internship Project Report Abstract Steam Turbine is a prime mover which converts the energy associated with the steam into mechanical energy which results in the rotation of the turbine rotor. It is nearly an ideal working device among all heat engines and prime movers and widely used in Power plants and in all industries to generate power because of its greater thermal efficiency and higher power-to-weight ratio. Presently, 80% of all electricity is generated by using steam turbines alone. In this project report, I have mainly concentrated on the turbine-rotor-blades. Because, the rotor is the heart of the turbine and it affects (i.e. blading of rotor) the efficiency of the steam turbine. In this manufacturing of blades is widely focused.

...Court Management Executive Summary Larry Garcia, Stephanie Saucedo, Erick Orozco, Alfred Grayson CJA/394 Jan-24-2012 Barry Boggle The traditional and “problem-solving” roles of the judge may be at odds philosophically, ethically, managerially, and Procedurally Communities expect more from courts for example, rehabilitation, reform, and control/cure of substance abuse and other behaviors and conditions. But some social problems cannot be solved. For example, mental health courts have proliferated as a result of federal funding. However, advocates point out that mental illness is not a crime and, in some instances, may be treatable but not curable. Likewise, domestic violence issues are complex; while courts can address some aspects and implement practices that will not exacerbate the problems; the general dynamics of domestic violence make the problem difficult for courts to solve. Long-term monitoring of substance abusers and sex offenders may be unworkable or unconstitutional (Chris Woodworth). “While the Purposes and Responsibilities of Courts Core Competency requires knowledge of and reflection upon theoretic concepts, their history and development over time, this competency is practical. The Purposes and Responsibilities Competency gives meaning to, in fact properly grounds, day-to-day judicial administration and the other nine Core Competencies.
