action in the “outside the Gates” scene takes place on Easter Morning. There are lots of people walking by and talking to each other and taking in the scenes. There are various classes of townspeople that are congregating but they don’t seem to be doing religious things on this religious morning, like going to church or acting in a pious manner. In fact the apprentices are discussing getting the prettiest girls and the strongest beers. There is a student who is trying to pick up a common girl who he considers to be easy to get. He also feels that he would have a great day and all that is needed is “a beer with a head, tobacco that bites, and a girl like that”. Even the more elite in the society have other ideas in their minds that are not Christian or religious. The Burgher’s daughter is gossiping about the good looking boys who could have the best in their class yet choose to go after housemaids. Other girls who are approached by a witch, state that they can’t be seen with her yet speak of how the witch had looked into the crystal and foretold their futures and their future lovers ( who they are actively looking for). The Burghers are out and about also. One of them is complaining on the politics of the area while another is talking of war and foreign politics. Basically, this must be just an ordinary day of the townsfolk, yet Faust knows that it is Easter Morning and there should be a difference in everyone. Faust when he mingles with the folks does comment on the celebration going on and compares it to the spring that is awakening around him. When the townspeople see Faust they revere him and praise him. They offer up a drink to quench his thirst along with a toast to the great doctor. He politely accepts the drink yet states that they should give the honor to God not him. He does not feel spiritually worthy of this praise. He does not feel…...

...About a week ago after driving my Mini Cooper for a short distance the EML light in the car would come on and the car would hesitate. The car then would loose pressure dropping the speed from normal speed limit to no more than 5 – 10 mph. After parking the car, I noticed that the fan would come on and remain on for an extended period. When I lifted the hood of the car, I noticed that the coolant supply would be low. Replacing the coolant supply did not seem to fix the problem. I attempted to figure out the problem with an experiment. I drove the same speed around the block multiple times. The third or fourth time I noticed a difference. When I drove the car approximately a mile, the temperature gage would increase activating the EML. Then the car would hesitate, loose pressure, and decrease in mph. It seemed to be a direct correlation with an increase in temperature, the EML light coming on, losing pressure, and the decrease in mph. So to make sure there were not any confounding variables, I drove the car slowly to ensure speed was not a factor. Decreasing the speed did not change anything. I was able to make the same observation. I took the car to the auto repair shop. The repair person informed me that there was a leak in the coolant system. The leak caused an increase in the cars temperature. The increase in the cars temperature activated the EML light. The car would loose pressure. When the car lost pressure, the protection mechanism would activate to prevent any real...

...Mini Case BUS 401: Principles of Finance Chapter 11 Mini Case A. Due to flows being an item that the firm obtains and can reinvest, Caledonia should concentrate on cash flows verses accounting profits. When cash flows are being evaluated, the firm’s benefits and costs can be reviewed in a better manner. Since firms are more interested in benefits for the shareholders, they are only interested in the cash flows after-tax. Incremental cash flows are reviewed the most because firms are more concerned with their increased values when the project’s marginal benefits are being evaluated. B. When reviewing cash flow items, depreciation is not one of them. But depreciation to play a role in the differential cash flows of the project because of its effect on taxes. Overall expenses are increased by the expense of depreciation. Depreciation reduces accounting profits which also impacts cash flow by reducing taxes. C. Since firms are more concerned with incremental after-tax cash flows only, sink costs are typically ignored. Regardless of the results in regards to a project, sink costs have happened and are not considered incremental cash flows. J. Because the NPV is greater than zero and the IRR is greater than the rate of return, than the project should be accepted. K.

...In The Colour Purple we see how the theme of separation can help someone leads back into wholeness .The main plot concludes to a series of reunions including Celie and her biological children and Albert. Albert has completely transformed himself from a cruel, cold, sexually abusing and unloving man into a loving, understanding and kind friend. The key from this transformation was their separation; Albert became depressed, isolated himself and reflected on himself. The separation helped him gain a sense of clarity as to what is most important in his life. He realized he followed his father’s judgement, since he first felt real love with Shug but his father disapproved since his father only believed women was good for cooking and cleaning. He then married Celie for this purpose “Took me long enough to notice you such good company, he say. And he laugh. He ain't Shug, but he begin to be somebody I can talk to." (pg.284) From his transformation he realizes how following his father’s judgment all those years caused him from enjoying the new Celie when they were married. The reunion of Celie and her children demonstrates and symbolizes the theme of separation can lead to wholeness.

...which shows that the job is not only affecting the main character physically, but also psychotically. It is interrupting his mind in his every-day, which indicates that the annoyance really is a problem for him. The short story is written as a 1st person narrator, where we mainly follow the main characters thoughts in the factory, and not so much about his real life. What we do get to hear about his personal life, is that he drives a white Mini Cooper, which is not a cheap car. He does not have a girlfriend and does not seem interested in any of the girls at work; in fact he seems to abhor one of the ladies and her attire. He even admits that he has “[..] zero confidence with women anyway” (p. 4, l.96). We do not read about him even attending any guys either and in general, he seems to be a very introverted person. One thing that is quite funny about him is that he is very in to the English punk rock band, Joy Division. There is now three things that opposes each other. His very boring, low paid factory job, his classy white Mini Cooper and his love for the dirty, gritty, English punk rock band, Joy Division. The reason for his taste in music is that he can let himself loose to it and get all of his anger from work out, just by listening to this music, consisting of fast drums, loud guitar, yelling vocals and a pumping bass. It gets his pulse moving, which is does not at work or in his spare time. The main reason the main character dislikes this factory so......

Faust

... Faust Wendy S Piper World Literature 3 Faust shows successfully our want for power and knowledge. You basically get a spoiled kid with every advantage, seeks out the devil, signs away his soul without serious contemplation, harasses various kings and religious types, then gets hacked to death when his contract expires. He explores the territory of longing for lost youth (or maybe how youth is squandered on the young), public shaming of a fallen woman, a somewhat deeper look at the question of "why be a brilliant scholar if I do not have as much power as God?" and does so eloquently. As I read Faust, I was pondering what the purpose of the characters in this book was. All of the characters seem to appear in the writing and play their part and then they are gone. We follow Faust and Mephistopheles through their journey and as they meet people we become intrigued by them only to never find out what has happened to them. The one character that we follow to the end is Gretchen. We see her life when she meets Faust and follow her until her death. I felt like we had been left to ponder the other characters and their purpose in the book. This happens with Faust as well. We never find out what happens to him. I felt like this was a story almost centered on Gretchen. I believe Faust will triumph in the end because he realizes that Mephistopheles is only messing everything up for him, and realize that having a fulfilling life isn't the same as what he......

...Mini Case #2 JetBlue: losing the Magic Touch?   1. What type of generic business strategy is JetBlue pursuing: cost leadership, differentiation, or integration? A differentiation strategy seeks to create higher value for customers than the value that competitors create, by delivering products or services with unique features while keeping cost at the same or similar levels. A cost-leadership strategy, in contrast, seeks to create the same or similar value for customers by delivering products or services at a lower cost than competitors, enabling the firm to offer lower prices to its customers. And integration strategy is a combination of differentiation and cost-leadership strategy. In this case, JetBlue is pursuing integration strategy because JetBlue reproduced many of SWA’s cost-reducing activities such as flying point-to-point to directly connect city pairs. It also predominantly uses one type of airplane, the Airbus A320, to lower its maintenance costs. And in addition, it flies longer distances and transports more passengers per flight per than SWA, further driving down its costs. So far, all these strategies have to do with cost-leadership. JetBlue also incorporated the differentiation strategy in their model. They executed the differentiation strategy by offering value-enhancing features include high-end 100-seat Embraer regional jets with regional jets with leather seats, individual TV screen with movies, Live TV, Fox TV, and Direct TV programming, 100 channels of...

...BE ORIGINAL Introducing the New BMW MINI Cooper Hardtop, “The New Original”. MINI is known for its quirky campaigns over the years, the launch of the new model brought about MINI’s biggest campaign yet, with the slogan: “The New MINI. The New Original.” Spring 2014 announced the arrival of BMW’s new MINI Cooper Hardtop. The car that was first launched in 1959 has been entirely redesigned from bonnet to boot. Bigger and better than ever, the new MINI focuses on the things that make it undeniably different from all its competitors. With new engines, technologies and design, the MINI is faster, safer and more connected than a switchboard. It is completely different from any other car. BMW in collaboration with their respective advertising agencies worldwide, have used all possible forms of media and creative new ways to engage their target audience in the launch of their iconic MINI. MINI uses brand promotion tools including advertising and sales promotions. Back To Spike/ Spike The Bulldog/ Bullheaded/MINI Cooper Dog Lovers BMW decided to keep Mini’s iconic bull-dog stance in their first ad, “Bullheaded” which features Spike the Bulldog.

Case: the Mini

...while at the same time penetrating new markets with new models,” (Crawford & Di Benedetto, 2011). After the Beetle captured attention, it was evident that reviving the Mini would fit BMW’s mission; thus it recreated the Mini. 2. Looking back at the Mini in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, I think that BMW skillfully recreated the Mini with tremendous improvements in the design, particularly the interior. In addition, BMW has attracted many customers to the Mini since it is a retro sport car. 3. BMW witnessed many modern automobiles resembling beloved retro cars. The launch of Z3 was very successful yet different from BMW’s prestigious sedans. After acquisitioning Rover Group Ltd., BMW had the right to recreate the Mini; thus the Mini was recreated to revive an old favorite as well as targeting a different segment. 4. I believe that BMW avoided the perception they were cheapening their brand by supporting their corporate identity in the Mini. Even though Mini looks nothing like other BMW cars, it still has the quality and excellence of BMW cars. The Mini’s controlling and feel reflects BMW’s high standards and thus it supports its identity. 5. I think that some arguments might occur during the Mini’s new product process, especially in the development phase. Considering the fact that the Mini has a British look but being manufactured by a German automobile company, I assume that designers and engineers will have their differences. Moreover, there might be......

Faust and Devil's Advocate

...Michael Erobu Professor Vickey Daley English 236 8 October 2014 Vanity and Greed Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s literary work of the story “Faust” can easily be compared and contrasted to the film The Devil’s Advocate. Though there may be a large time span between the two works they both are able to convey the same main theme. By dealing with the ever present vanity and greed of human nature, both works are able to have the same major plot and theme though almost two centuries apart. Both have just about the same character relationship, the main character of the story is brought vain success by the antagonist and thus the antagonist is tries to make a deal to the protagonist to sell their souls. The first comparison between the story of “Faust” and the film The Devil’s advocate are the similarities between the two protagonists. They are both men who want more in life. In “Faust”, Faust is a scholar who wants to know the purpose of life. He is in despair about his life thus far and in search of purpose, love and power. He has had so many scholastic achievements he feels there is nothing more for him to learn from books. “Faust has studied all of the major subjects in which a Renaissance scholar could receive a degree, so can be understood to have exhausted traditional learning” (Brians 2). In The Devil’s advocate, Kevin Lomax is a vain lawyer in the small town of Gainesville, Florida. Though he is very successful as a lawyer there he isn’t doing or making as much as he......

Impressionism - Mini Essay

...The expression "Impressionist" was initially begat in the mid-1870s, as a discriminatingly disparaging term, of the light- and shading centered canvases of a little band of Paris-based craftsmen, the alleged "Salon des Refusés" (Salon of the Can't) - among them Manet, Renoir, Degas, and particularly Monet, whose "Impression, soleil levant" propelled the name. The usage of the term to music, from the 1880s, was a somewhat unsurprising extension, however most writers to whom it was connected disavowed its application - specifically Claude Debussy, whose music are "imbeciles", and that rather he is just attempting to do "something other than what's expected”. A characteristic of the “Impressionist” was the medieval modes, as they were alluring to writers who tried to escape the "oppression" of the significant/minor sound. Stressed were essential interims - octaves, fourths, and fifths - in parallel movement. This looked like a medieval technique known as "organum", where a tune was fit by an alternate which ran parallel to it at a separation of a fourth or fifth. The harmony and melody of The Prelude to an Evening of a Faun gives the melody a dreamlike and improvisatory feeling. The opening woodwind solo of the piece comprises of a chromatic plunge to a triton underneath the first piece. (Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, 2013). Chromaticism is a musical method joining the essential diatonic pitches with different pitches of the chromatic scale.Debussy likewise uses expanded...
