Little No Horse

... Townsend 1 Evelyn Townsend Professor Anne Vial Women in Literature 3 December 2012 A Contextual Analysis of the Spiritual and Sensual Significance of Flesh in The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse Following tradition is a monumental aspect of Catholicism. While young Catholics are encouraged to grow in faith, they are taught to be cautioned by anything that contradicts that specific form of faith. Anything that contradicts the traditions enforced by the Catholic Church is faulted and therefore is not a topic of discussion. The authority held by Catholic priests, nuns, saints, cardinals, and other laity intimidates and inspires those who lack power. The individuals who feel distanced from power in the Catholic Church are the same individuals who are awestruck by the learnedness of the very same people that hold them back. Should those people of power in the Catholic Church be held to such high esteem? As an author, Louise Erdrich enjoys taking a conversational approach to how much the representatives of the church should model virtue. Her work constantly challenges how people of faith conduct themselves behind what society assumes them to be. Erdrich’s novel The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse listens to that very conversation in addition to uncovering what is behind the “flesh” of those who supposedly strictly follow the traditional morality that is thought to embody the Catholic Church. Purity in the sense of the church......

Secondly, I will describe the reasoning behind the meat scandal as it pertains to the business world. In the third part I will evaluate the consequences as well as its economic impact. And last but not least I will criticise the actions and decisions of the businesses and political leaders involved. As well I will recommend action steps for business leaders impacted by this scandal. Definition The word “scandal” is defined as an offense caused by a fault misdeed.(Modern Language Association (MLA), 2013). Besides it is often a disgraceful or discreditable action. The term “meat scandal” cannot be defined exactly. Nevertheless you can define how a meat scandal developed and why it became a scandal. Generally a meat scandal emerged from the illegal act of putting incompatible meat in circulation for the human consumption (e.g. Rotten meat). Due to the fact that the intermixed beef was compatible for the human consumption, the recent meat scandal was more about the falsely declared meat. Progress In the following section I will analyse and describe the process of the meat scandal. For simplicity reasons I would like to please every reader to have a look on the following map. It is much easier to follow the complex progress of the meat scandal by having an overview at first. 1: French food producer makes......

Feral Horses in the

...Feral Horses in the U.S. – Indigenous or Invasive Feral horse (mustang) herds roaming the Great American Plains are a well-known symbol of American history. Yet few are acquainted with their convoluted history and the socio-political and environmental conflicts they are involved in. The horses of today originated in North America but went extinct in prehistoric times due to unclear reasons. They disseminated to other continents and were reintroduced to North America by Columbus’ men. The period of the horses’ historical absence from North America has sparked debates as to their official status. Some horse advocates and environmentalists argue that feral horses are native to the continent and as such should be protected and given free space to roam. Their main arguments are that horses originated on and inhabited the continent long before humans started populating it, and that the feral horses of the Wild West are a national symbol of history and pride. Others, mainly farmers and agriculturalists, push for population control and limiting the mustangs’ area because they are an invasive non-native species that harms natural ecosystems and competes with livestock for resources. The U.S. Bureau of Land Management is responsible for implementing policies concerning feral horses. Currently, following the Wild and Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, the Bureau captures feral horses and gives them away for adoption. The main issue facing the Bureau is the legal and......

Scandal bank scenario. If Enron’s customers were willing to continue and use the company’s service, Enron would have been able to avoid bankruptcy. Enron might have had large debts and obligation but they had also large revenue, once Enron lost their credibility they also lost their customers, as they were not willing to continue to use their services. Andersen was a large and established firm, and losing a company like Enron, as their client would not had led to their end, but the company lost their credibility in the eyes of their clients. As a result of that, many clients decided to terminate their contracts Andersen. Following the scandal with Enron, Andersen lost a huge amount of customers, which led the to declare bankruptcy. There are different reasons why so many companies fired Andersen. A strong opinion is that once the scale of the scandal was known, the clients felt betrayed; it is sort of un-American to do such thing. Clients did not want to be involved with a company that causes so many people to loss their job, and causes much harm to many more. Lack of integrity was linked to both Enron and Andersen. Once a perceived lack of integrity is attached to a person, it is really hard to recover from that; it causes irreparable damage. If a lack of integrity is linked to a person, all of his actions will be looked over with suspicions. For example if a tax accountant is caught filling his own taxes unlawfully, any other tax return that he will work on will be......

Fjord Horse

...Fjord Horses The Norwegian Fjord Horse or Fjord Horse for short is normally small but is a very strong horse breed from the mountainous regions of Western Norway. It is a very agile breed with a light draft horse build. All Fjord horses have dun color, with five color variations recognized by their breed registration. It is one of the world’s oldest breeds, and has been used for a farm horse for hundreds of years in Norway, and in modern times they are popular for their normally good temperament. They are used both as a saddle and harness horse. Some characteristics are that at maturity they range between 900 and 1200 pounds, and are usually brown dun in color. The (Norwegian) Fjord Horse is one of the world’s purest and oldest breeds, being first domesticated 4,000 years ago. According to “herds of wild Fjord horses existed in Norway after the last ice age. Excavations at Viking burial sites indicate that the Fjord horse has been selectively bred for at least 2,000 years.” According to “Rune stone carvings in Norway, many of fighting stallions, show images of horses recognizable as Fjords. The Vikings took their Fjords, which they used as war mounts, in their travels to Scotland, Iceland, and elsewhere. In these lands the Fjord influenced the Highland Pony and the Icelandic Horse. From the Vikings’ horses of war, the Fjord evolved into a working farm horse for......

Horse Epm

...Equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) is a common neurologic disease of horses in the Americas; it has been reported in most of the contiguous 48 states of the USA, southern Canada, Mexico, and several countries in Central and South America. In other countries, EPM is seen sporadically in horses that previously have spent time in the Americas. Etiology and Epidemiology Most cases of EPM are caused by an Apicomplexan protozoan, Sarcocystis neurona. Horses are infected by ingestion of S neurona sporocysts in contaminated feed or water. The organism undergoes early asexual multiplication (schizogony) in extraneural tissues before parasitizing the CNS. Because infectious sarcocysts are only rarely formed, the horse is considered an aberrant, dead-end host for S neurona. Like other Sarcocystis spp, S neurona has an obligate predator-prey life cycle. The definitive (predator) host for S neurona in the USA is the opossum (Didelphis virginiana). Opossums are infected by eating sarcocyst-containing muscle tissue from an infected intermediate (prey) host and, after a brief prepatent period (probably 2–4 wk), infectious sporocysts are passed in the feces. Nine-banded armadillos, striped skunks, raccoons, sea otters, Pacific harbor seals, and domestic cats have all been implicated as intermediate hosts; however, the importance in nature of each of these species is unknown. Sporadic cases of EPM are associated with Neospora hughesi, an organism closely related to S neurona. The......

...was “a healthy product” that was merely mislabeled (Mintz, 1987). In court, when Hoyvald was asked why he didn’t immediately order a product recall upon first learning of possible adulteration, he replied, “And I could have called up Switzerland and told them I had just closed the company down. Because that is what would have been the result of it” (Traub, 1988). Hoyvald first claimed to have known nothing of the adulterated juice concentrate, then later said he had no proof of adulteration, and in any case he had been acting on the advice of Nestlé attorney Thomas J. Ward (who, by the way, had been involved in Nestlé’s response to the boycott against its infant formula marketing practices and, more recently, the Guinness financial scandal in Great Britain). Lavery claimed that he knew of allegations that the concentrate was adulterated, but had no proof. Nestlé attorneys, who defended the two, claimed that the blame belonged solely on the shoulders of lower-level employees (Welles, 1988). The Trial Ends The New York State case against Beech-Nut came to an end in March 1988, when the company paid a $250,000 fine in restitution for the crime of selling adulterated apple juice. The company was fined another $2 million by federal courts for the violations of federal food and drug laws to which it had pleaded guilty in the fall of 1987 (“Beech-Nut Pays,” 1988: D10). The final sanction levied against Beech-Nut came in April 1989, when it was barred from doing......

Healing Horses

...primarily focus on improvement and behavior modification. While medication is prescribed to control severe symptoms such as hyperactivity or seizures, there are no known cures for autism. (Therapeutic) There are only methods aimed towards lessening symptoms. However, research into a fairly new treatment called equine assisted therapy, is beginning to show signs of promise. Equine assisted therapy is a type of animal assisted therapy, a field of mental health that acknowledges the bond between horses and humans. It acknowledges the potential for mental healing that can occur when a relationship is formed between the two species, among other benefits as well (Therapeutic). It involves equine activities organized and facilitated by a licensed mental health professional, often with the assistance of a horse professional. These activities are most often completed on the ground and include such things as grooming, feeding, haltering and leading the horse. During the therapy session with the horse, the therapist and participant partake in talk psychotherapy, processing emotions, behaviors and repetitions. The fundamental objective for the child is to build skills including personal accountability, assertiveness, non-verbal communication, confidence, and self-control (ET) With more studies arising, there has been a growing general consensus that equine assisted therapy is highly beneficial to cognitive, psychological, and social domains (ET). Nevertheless, while some......

...Community-oriented policing is a system that addresses the top concerns of the community which implies there would need to be more communication between members of the community and police officers. The article Policing on Bicycles and Horses by Sam Swindell focuses on two types of community-oriented policing. The two types being bicycle and mounted patrol of C.O.P. Bicycle patrol is a type of community policing patrol serves well in that the police have the opportunity to encounter more citizens and extend their contacts in the community. Many police departments have been adapting bicycle patrols into their community policing programs due to the positive response given by the community and the officers. Mounted patrol has been around for centuries and will continue to be around as there is always a positive response from the community. Police on bicycles seem more approachable and attractive to citizens especially the youth. The officers tend to dress informal so they can be better recieved by the community. These officers have the same advatages as those on foot patrol have, but they are able to get move faster. They can hear, see and smell the community around them. The bicycles can go where cars can not. In the Los Angeles Police Department they enhanced mobility crowd control when bicycle patrol was first deployed in 2000. The article also states that bicycle patrol is quieter than any car. The article tells about the disadvatages of bicycle patrol. It states that......
