Analysis of Puteri Santubong and Puteri Sejinjang based on Vladimir Propp’s Seven Spheres of Action and the Binary Oppositions

The legend of Puteri Santubong and Puteri Sejinjang started when they were sent down to earth by Raja Kayangan to resolve the conflict in Sarawak between Pasir Kuning and Pasir Putih. The arrival of the two princesses who were equipped with their own unique talent, Puteri Santubong with her weaving skills and Puteri Sejinjang with her rice pounding skills, helped both the villages prosper. However, the appearance of Putera Serapi made the princesses love struck. The prince asked both of them to marry him but they refused to share. The princesses quarreled over the prince which also caused the villagers to fight amongst each other. Puteri Sejinjang hit Puteri Santubong on the cheek with her rice pounder and Puteri Santubong countered by striking her with her belidak, the tool she uses for weaving. Both princesses died and were cursed to become mountains, Gunung Santubong and Gunung Sejinjang. Based on Vladimir Propp’s seven spheres of action, seeing that Raja Kayangan had sent the two princesses to aid the people of the villages, he acts as the Dispatcher and by granting them special abilities he is also the Donor and the Helper. This in turn makes the princesses Heroes. The Princess, or in this folklore’s case, the Prince is the one that Puteri Santubong and Puteri Sejinjang wants to marry; Putera Serapi. But by ending the peace between the two villages also causes the princesses to become False Heroes ergo the Villains. The only binary opposition that can be found in the story is the time which the princesses chose to do their work. Puteri Santubong preferred to weave cloth at night time because the air was cooler while Puteri Sejinjang liked to pound rice during the day when the air was…...

Such chars and figures are reviewed next. 2.2.1 Review on Process Chart: A process chart (Meyers & Stewart 2002) is a chart on which are graphically shown in sequence the separate details that make up a complete process, the charting of work flows and working processes. Process Charts are one of the simpler forms of workflow charting and are still in regular usage but are less common than they once were; this is unfortunate since it was the ubiquitous nature of the process chart that made it a common language between different groups of people and across different industries. A variety of process charts has been designed to meet the needs of a particular level or stage of analysis they can be used at a detailed level but also at the wider system process or procedure level. The different kinds of process chart share a common set of symbols though some have additional symbols for specific and specialized process steps. The common symbols were first promulgated by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and have become known as the ASME symbols. These symbols are illustrated in table 2.1: Table 2.1 process chart symbols | Process Symbol | Process Name | | Operation | | Inspection | | Transport | | Storage | | Delay | These symbols are simply linked together in a vertical chart representing the key stages in a process, it is usual to place a column recording observations......

Team Based Health Care Analysis

...Team Based Health Care Delivery Oliver Solis Grand Canyon University Analysis of Contemporary Health Care Models HCA-515-0101 March 5, 2014 Team Based Health Care Delivery Introduction The paper that I will be presenting will discuss the latest model in health care delivery that was developed by researchers and medical professionals to come up to a better quality health service delivery to all. This is called the “Team based health care delivery” which simply defines as the collaboration between hospitals, physicians and other medical professionals that will work as a team to provide a quality and excellent care to the patient (American Hospital Association, “n.d.”, p. 2-8) Patients Case This case that I will be presenting is a case of a seventy year old man with hypertension that was admitted at the emergency room for CVA (Cerebro Vascular Accident). Upon arrival of the patient at the hospital ER stroke neurologist and the ER physician are the front liners that will see the patient. A nurse should be attending too to administer any medication and apply intravenous solution and of course take all the vital signs of the patient. .The patient must be evaluated within 45 minutes and the first 15 minutes is the most crucial in this case. Increased pressure in the brain should be monitored closely. Blood sugar is also a big factor and should not be neglected because it plays a special role too. Body temperature is another indicator that should not be forgotten to......

Activity Based Costing Analysis

...Critically discuss: a) Why Cambridge Hospital Community Health Network embarked on the ABC study? There are two main reasons why the Cambridge Hospital Community Health Network (the Network) embarked on the Activity Based Costing (ABC) study. Firstly, the Network needed to gain a better understanding of its unit-of-service costs, which had been rising at a rate of 10% per year. In fact it had recently been rated the third-highest cost hospital in the state of Massachusetts. Being a high cost provider could make the Network uncompetitive for Medicaid and other public contracts. Secondly, the Network’s new operating budget required a $14 million reduction, which represented 15% of the total hospital network’s operating budget, in expenditures during the next two fiscal years. This was largely due to the downward pressure on hospital revenues by the government reform and managed care forced providers to cope with conditions that were constantly changing, while continuing to provide quality health care services in a time of intense competition. The Network's traditional method of analysing costs is the Medicare step-down costing system. It gave little information about the cost at the unit of service level. It gave only aggregate costing information (i.e. information about the departmental or global costs) but it does not provide the costs at the patient or procedure level that is needed in order to push cost reduction and also price their services......

Increasing Cross-Cultural Analysis and Action Skills

...Increasing cross-cultural analysis and action skills Jones International University September 15, 2013 Situation An American Manager asks one of his subordinates who was recently transferred from Russia if it was possible for him to start the next day one hour earlier so they could finish a special account analysis before the team meeting at noon. The Russian employee responded affirmatively but next day he arrived at his usual start time. Cultural analysis United States: According to Hofstede’s dimensions, United States has a low uncertainty avoidance index (46); therefore American society accepts ambiguous situations and handles well risk. There is a great level of acceptance for new ideas, innovative products and an inclination to try new ways. At the same time, Americans are less expressive and don’t mind ideas or opinions from others since are firm believers of the freedom of speech. Russia: Russia scores at 95 in uncertainty avoidance which means they feel threatened by uncertain or confusing situations. Russians prefer detailing planning and briefing for new ventures. They prefer to have perspective and circumstantial information before involving in any business. A high index in uncertainty avoidance also impact on the way instructions and directions in the workplace are handled and noticed. Russians expect explicit instructions and direction for any task and also will give very detailed...

Covert Action Analysis

...25 April 2011 The Intelligence Authorization Act of 1991 defines covert action as "an activity or activities of a government to influence political, economic, or military conditions abroad, where it is intended that the government’s role will not be apparent or acknowledged publicly.” Simply put, covert action allows governments or organized groups to secretly influence and manipulate events abroad allowing them to fulfill their objectives without any parties knowing who sponsored or carried out these activities. This not only conceals the identity of the sponsor but also opens up the option of plausible denial if they were ever suspected. Covert action is a third option when “soft” exercises of national power such as diplomacy, economic sanctions, or informational power are ineffective in influencing conditions abroad on one hand, while the use of overt military force is undesirable or not feasible on the other.1 Covert action is traditionally divided into three categories: propaganda, paramilitary operations, and political action. Propaganda involves disseminating specific message or viewpoints to a target audience. As an example, in the late 1940’s, the U.S. covertly used propaganda to assist anti-communist political parties in Italy and France during close elections. Paramilitary operations involve training, equipping, and supporting paramilitary groups in target countries. A successful example was when the U.S. supported the Afghan guerrilla fighters during......

Choice Based Conjoint Analysis

...CHOICE BASED CONJOINT ANALYSIS SUBMISSION: JAYAJIT (JAY) DASH Concept: Pursuant to our Group Project (the evaluation of means to sustain the growth of Bose® - a successful, mature business), this exercise was a multinomial logit simulation: collecting consumer preferences for the objective determination of characteristics for a profit maximizing new-product. Our envisioned product is a modular speaker system from the house of Bose®. These are speakers and amplifiers that one can develop a collection of over time, that operate wirelessly and communicate with each other, that can be used at home (as part of a hi-fi unit), or can be detached and taken as a self-powered wireless companion to a party outdoors. Description of Design: As a group we first defined the attributes that we wanted to understand customer preference around. Some immediate questions were: “What price point?” “Would a classic design aesthetic be preferred over modern, edgy lines?” “How exceptional must sound quality be?” “How important will interoperability and connectivity be for consumers as we increasingly move into an internet-of-things world?” And finally, “Can we get a sense of the kind of names that might resonate better?” From an experimental design perspective, we were conscious that we should rather have more attributes than levels. We get more bang-for-buck this way, as adding levels is multiplicative, but adding factors can be exponential. Accordingly, we zeroed in on 5 attributes......

...Children’s Literature on Folklore Folklore originated as stories told around the campfire and passed down by word of mouth. Because these stories originated orally, many times they have no known authors. These stories were almost always fantasy and involved magic or animals that talked. There are six subcategories that fall under Folklore in Children’s Literature. These subcategories are: folktales, tall tales, fables, myths, epics/ballads/legends and religious stories. One subcategory that falls under Folklore is Folk tales. A folk tale is a tale or legend originating among a people or folk, especially one forming part of an oral tradition. Folk tales are often part of the oral tradition of a group and are usually told rather than read. They are passed down from one generation to the next. They may be stories that grew out of the lives and imaginations of people. Folk tales can take on the personality of the storyteller and the story can take on the characteristics of the time and place in which the story is told. The themes are universal and timeless and may contain supernatural elements, imaginative characters, focus on action, have a simple sense of justice, have happy endings and contain fundamental wisdom (Chen, 2009). There are seven types of folk tales, each with their own characteristics to set them apart from one another. Anansi the Spider: A Tale from the Ashanti by Gerald McDermott is a beast tale. It is a beautifully illustrated folk tale from......

Philippine Folklore

...PHILIPPINE FOLKLORE: ENGKANTO BELIEFS HISTORICAL BACKGROUND: Philippine mythology is derived from Philippine folk literature, which is the traditional oral literature of the Filipino people. This refers to a wide range of material due to the ethnic mix of the Philippines. Each unique ethnic group has its own stories and myths to tell. While the oral and thus changeable aspect of folk literature is an important defining characteristic, much of this oral tradition had been written into a print format. University of the Philippines professor, Damiana Eugenio, classified Philippines Folk Literature into three major groups: folk narratives, folk speech, and folk songs. Folk narratives can either be in prose: the myth, the alamat (legend), and the kuwentong bayan (folktale), or in verse, as in the case of the folk epic. Folk speech includes the bugtong (riddle) and the salawikain (proverbs). Folk songs that can be sub-classified into those that tell a story (folk ballads) are a relative rarity in Philippine folk literature.[1] Before the coming of Christianity, the people of these lands had some kind of religion. For no people however primitive is ever devoid of religion. This religion might have been animism. Like any other religion, this one was a complex of religious phenomena. It consisted of myths, legends, rituals and sacrifices, beliefs in the high gods as well as low; noble concepts and practices as well as degenerate ones; worship and...

Competency-Based Job Analysis

...people were tested based on some conventional tests of abilities and intelligence. But those tests were unable to predict one’s job performance or success in life as well as his career. Even, sometimes it is seen that the selection was biased. So, the term competency has introduced to overcome these defects, suggesting that it made possible the development of valid and unbiased predictors of performance. Competency is the combination of someone’s abilities, skills, knowledge, values and interest. Knowledge is defined variously as expertise, and skills are the practice of understanding through experience and education. So, competency based job analysis become one of the vital factors in today’s HR practices in modern organizations. Competency-based job analysis means describing a particular job in terms of the measurable, observable and behavioral competencies that an employee doing the job must exhibit to the job perfectly. DISCUSSIONS Job analysis Job analysis is the basic and important part of human resource management.

Team Based Analysis

...Team-Based Approach to Health Delivery in a Hospital Ian Overstreet Grand Canyon University: HCA-515 August 19, 2015 Team-Based Approach to Health Delivery in a Hospital Often problems become easier to solve when there are multiple individuals collaborating together. Attacking a problem from different sides can lead to new ideas that can ultimately lead to the solution of whatever problem is at hand. This is especially true in hospitals when the lives of patients are in the very hands of those who care for them. Everything that comes through the doors of a hospital, a team of people is involved in making sure that they treat that individual with the best care. Nurses, technicians, physicians, surgeons, and specialist all play a vital role in ensuring the well-being of each individual patient. Though there are extenuating factors that can limit the amount and type of treatment a patient may receive, like insurance and overall ability to pay, the team in a hospital will do what they can to send a patient home in good health. Case Description A Middle Eastern woman in the United States, in good health, and in her late thirties notices a lump on her breast and proceeds to have it looked at by her gynecologist.

Outline the Fundamental Essentials of an Action Based on Judicial Review

...Outline the fundamental essentials of an action based on judicial review Judicial review is a type of court proceeding in which a judge reviews the lawfulness of a decision or action made by a public body. It is a challenge to the way in which a decision has been made. It is not really concerned with the conclusions of that process, as long as the right procedures have been followed. The types of decision which may fall within the range of judicial review include decisions of local authorities in the exercise of their duties to provide various welfare benefits and special education for children in need of such education, certain decisions of the immigration authorities and immigration appellate authority, decisions of regulatory bodies and decisions relating to prisoner's rights. Judicial review may be very useful for example it gives room for constitutional bills that is needed by the country to be created even when the judicial branch do not think so and therefore preventing a flawed system. However, judicial review may not be best when arguing that a decision was incorrect. There are alternative remedies, such as appealing against the decision to a higher court. According to Lord Diplock, the grounds for judicial review are illegality, irritationality and procedural impropriety. This therefore means some fundamental essentials of an action based on judicial review is for the existing decision to be illegal or unreasonable. Illegality and irritationality are......

Analysis of Web Based Malware

...The Ghost In The Browser Analysis of Web-based Malware Niels Provos, Dean McNamee, Panayiotis Mavrommatis, Ke Wang and Nagendra Modadugu Google, Inc. {niels, deanm, panayiotis, kewang, ngm} Abstract As more users are connected to the Internet and conduct their daily activities electronically, computer users have become the target of an underground economy that infects hosts with malware or adware for financial gain. Unfortunately, even a single visit to an infected web site enables the attacker to detect vulnerabilities in the user’s applications and force the download a multitude of malware binaries. Frequently, this malware allows the adversary to gain full control of the compromised systems leading to the ex-filtration of sensitive information or installation of utilities that facilitate remote control of the host. We believe that such behavior is similar to our traditional understanding of botnets. However, the main difference is that web-based malware infections are pull-based and that the resulting command feedback loop is looser. To characterize the nature of this rising thread, we identify the four prevalent mechanisms used to inject malicious content on popular web sites: web server security, user contributed content, advertising and third-party widgets. For each of these areas, we present examples of abuse found on the Internet. Our aim is to present the state of malware on the Web and emphasize the importance of this rising threat. ...
