Robert Molesworth, jeg syntes du er meget krænkende over for mit hjemland Danmark. Det værste du kan krænke er vores madkultur. Jeg syntes selv vores mad er ganske glimrende i modsætning til jeres. F.eks. spiser i ikke meget andet end brunch, derudover drikker ikke et andet end te, varmt vand med smag.
Her i Danmark har vi en smag for ordentlig mad og drikke, man skal have ordentlig mad med masser af proteiner, som kød. I Danmark har vi en masse retter, der indeholder kød, det er også derfor vi bliver kaldt vikingerne, i Danmark er vi store stærke mænd, fyldt med proteiner, i modsætning til jer, snobbede, tynde og te-drikkende englændere. Vi drikker øl som bare fanden, det er det rigtige mænd gør.
Derudover føler jeg at vi har styr på vores land i modsætning til jeres mange borgerkrige, og jeres religiøse tolerance. Bare fordi I ikke kan holde styr på jeres indbyrdes krige i England, betyder det ikke I skal bombe Danmark.
I England strejker i hele tiden til fordel for jeres fagforeninger. Igen ødelægger i jeres eget land, med mange smertefulde strejker, både arbejderne og fabriksejere.
Du mener at danskerne er nogle svin, i England har i gjort det samme, bare fordi I ikke gør det længere, betyder det ikke at I er bedre. I Danmark har vi lavet en fantastisk trekantshandel. Vi får mange ting ud af denne handel. Da vi tager til Afrika og henter slaver, som vi bytter til bedre ting, fra vores…...

...RUNNING HEAD: BAYEUX TAPESTRY LETTER 1 “ Bayeux Tapestry Letter” Tara Brown Professor Dr. Gavin HUM 111-World Cultures I December 3, 2012 This letter was instructed and taught by Professor Dr. Gavin. Dear Brown Family, The Bayeux Tapestry was one of the most unforgettable and successful encounters that I have joined in as Bishop Odo. Odo’s father was Herluin, Viscount of Conteville and Odo’s mother was Herleva whom was the mother of the Duke of Normandy. When he was only nineteen years old, William made him the Bishop of Bayeux where he built a cathedral there. He was the architect who commanded the Bayeux Tapestry. This 230-foot-long, 20-inch high embroidery was one of the most fascinating narratives commissioned by Odo. The entourage of Bishop Odo of Bayeux has successful entrepreneurs and talented scholars. It based on two groups of men who owed his triumph to his support: those who clenched the land from him in his earldom of Kent and persons whose legendary education he nurtured. At the Battle of Hastings, immediately after the English have......

What Impression Is Given Off Robert Walton in the Opening Letters?

...What Impression is given off Robert Walton in the opening letters? Frankenstein, written by Mary Shelly and published in 1818 is the revolution of literature with Science fiction. Shelly begins her novel with the introduction of Robert Walton through four consecutive letters written over the course of 8 months to his ‘darling sister’; Mrs Margaret Saville. Robert Walton is shown as a free minded pioneer who wants to discover ‘land surpassing in wonders’. Letter I, in the very first letter Shelly impresses the readers with the courage and bravery of Walton who is discarding his sisters worries ‘no disaster has accompanied….evil forebodings’. Readers are immediately intrigued as to the complexity of this danger. Walton’s love of ‘undiscovered solitudes’ and his desire to find the ‘wondrous power’ of the north pole is ironic because the novel is a science fiction genre and the idea of discovering the north pole was the same until the 1800s. In addition, Walton’s desire for discovery can be portrayed as being naïve and desperate as he wants to feed his ‘ardent curiosity’ and ‘conquer all fears of danger and death’ In addition, Walton is highlighted to be a man with dreams who wants to leave an ‘inestimable benefit’ and wants to benefit all of mankind. This could be foreshadowing Victor Frankenstein’s desire to benefit mankind which creates trouble. Robert seems to be very motivated as his ‘dream of early years’ is about to come true. Hence, he is maybe someone who......

Robert Frost

...Destiny Martin English/6th 5-22-13 Core Robert frost life in a nutshell Robert Frost, called by Robert Graves "the voice of America" is also the farmer Poet of America. He has appealed to readers worldwide with his impulsive utterances, clarity of diction, lyricism and the significance he imparted to man. Frost's poems exhibit a realistic approach-a conglomeration of the metaphysical and the symbolic. As Mark Van Doren asserts" Frost knows to say a great deal in a short space. Poems like "Mending Wall", "The Road Not Taken" , "Birches" .etc exemplify that a poem must begin in delight and end in wisdom. The very opening line of "Mending Wall" poses as a typical instance of Frost's inverted statements: "Something there is that doesn't love a wall." The poem which begins on a conversational mode proceeds to have deeper implications. At the superficial level, it appears to be a war of words between two neighbours. However it has other ramifications in that it alludes to any border, division or barrier in any walk of life. Frost also is a regional poet like Hardy, his Wessex being New England. The above said poem being regional, gives off universal evocations. Frost's social orientation is suggested by the fact that the poem was read out in 1961 as an indictment on the construction of the Berlin Wall .The tone is colloquial and has a easy manner at the surface. Nevertheless, there is an underlying satire and wry humour. Frost's poems are noted for their......

Robert Redford

...Emotional Appeal and Religious Symbolism in American Film Director/Actor, Robert Redford It can be noted that in the majority of all the films directed by Robert Redford, there is a strong resemblance between the films and the characters he creates. Redford is strongly opinionated on politics and ethical rights. Political and religious symbolism can be found in almost all of his films. One of the most notable hallmarks of Robert Redford’s work, A River Runs Through It, is a profound example of the raw emotion Redford instills within his character that resonates so well with a wide range of audiences. Within the films he directs, Robert Redford’s characters seem to harbor emotions that bleed through the screen and into the viewer’s home because—much like the filmmaker himself—Redford’s films truly wear their heart on their sleeves. The films themselves seem to creep into the audience’s minds, leaving viewers longing for more or to simply be there in that moment feeling just like the characters Redford creates on screen. Born August 18, 1936, in Santa Monica, California, Robert Redford has proved to be one of the greats in American filmmaking; starring in classics such as The Sting and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Robert Redford is also notably known for helping kick-start The Sundance Film Festival in 1978, which has since evolved into one of the film industry's most prominent affairs. However, before experiencing success within the American filmmaking community,......

...compensation are tied to a benchmark, companies must disclose where actual payments and awards fall within the targeted range and, if applicable, the reason for any compensation amounts that fall outside the targeted range. 2.4 Disclosure of Performance Targets Companies must disclose company and individual performance targets for incentive compensation and the actual achievement level against the targets if they are material elements of the company’s compensation policies and decisions, unless the disclosure would result in competitive harm to the company. 6 EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION DISCLOSURE HANDBOOK Since adoption of the rules, the SEC has consistently focused on this disclosure requirement and to date has issued more comment letters to companies on this item of disclosure than any other. The SEC has also clarified that although the general rules regarding disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures (Regulation G) do not apply to disclosure regarding performance-related target levels, a company must disclose how the target levels are calculated from its audited financial statements. Š Threshold Question Is Materiality. A company must first determine whether performance targets are a material element of the company’s compensation policies and decisions. If performance targets are not material, then the company is not required to disclose them. Whether performance targets are material is a facts-and-circumstances test, which a company must evaluate in good faith. The......

Robert Latimer

...Euthanasia and the Canadian LAW: Robert Latimer Robert Latimer, a farmer working in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan killed his 12 year old daughter Tracy in 1983. Latimer admitted he loved his daughter and killed her to the police. He said he couldn’t bear to watch Tracy suffer from a severe form of cerebral palsy. Thus causing Latimer to kill his daughter and “free her from misery”. Latimer was charged of first-degree murder and a year later convicted of second-degree murder. This case arose many legal questions including: * Should courts abide by the book or the situation of the accused? * Would a decision favorable to Latimer legalize euthanasia? * Would it put the disabled in danger? The decision of this trial would determine the fate of the disabled. Any leniency towards Latimer would suggest the disabled are regarded as second-class citizens. Other laws such as abortion were referred to the deliberation of this case. The case soon became complex as the idea of ‘compassionate homicide’ vs. ‘cold-blooded murder’ proceeded. After that idea, Latimer was later given a constitutional exception in 2008 due the case being labeled as ‘compassionate homicide’ and the fact that the accused poses no threat in society. Plus, Latimer had killed his daughter for altruistic reasons. Before Latimer’s constitutional exception, it was taken in consideration that Tracy was a relatively a merry child and her rights had been violated by her father. Although, Tracy’s......

Robert Johnson

...Robert Johnson Robert Johnson laid the foundation for blues rock. After Eric Clapton, world-renowned guitarist, heard Robert Johnson for the first time he said, “I realized that, on some level, I had found the master, and that following this man’s example would be my life’s work.” It isn’t only Clapton that believes Johnson to be one of the best guitarists of all time. Spin magazine, Rolling Stone, and Guitar.com all rate Robert Johnson as one of the greatest guitar players of all time. He has inspired legendary musicians such as Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix and others (4). If, in today’s world of hip-hop and heavy metal, a person knows of only one country blues artist, odd are it is Robert Johnson (3). Let’s explore how this young man’s life impacted blues and rock music. Robert Johnson was born on May 8, 1911. Although there are differing dates on documents, this is the date that is most commonly believed to be correct (1). He was born in Hazelhurst, Mississippi and spent much of his early life in levee camps and on plantations. In 1918 his stepfather sent him to a plantation by Robinsonville, Mississippi. This is where he started playing harmonica and meeting older blues musicians such as Willie Brown, Charley Patton and Son House. He eventually moved back to Hazelhurst and met his wife but she died rather quickly after getting married (5). After his wife passed he went back to Robinsonville and met back up with his old blues musicians and......

Robert the Bruce

...Robert I, the Bruce Born on July 11, 1274, at Turnberry Castle in Ayrshire Scotland, Robert Bruce also known as Robert the Bruce is known as Scotland’s greatest hero. Yet, the movie Brave Heart would have you think William Wallace takes that title, making Bruce out to be nothing more than a self-serving opportunist. History however, shows us that Robert Bruce was the patient and cunning leader that Scotland needed to face the King of England Edward I, and later his son Edward II, to win Scottish independence from England. Family Background Robert’s father was known as Robert de Brus, 6th Lord of Annandale, descendent of David I with a distant connection to Scottish royalty. His mother was Marjory Countess of Carrick a lady of Gaelic decent. Robert the Bruce was married to Isabella of Mar in 1295 and later Elizabeth de Burgh in 1302. He fathered five legitimate children and several bastard children between the two marriages. Early life of Robert the Bruce The struggle for control of Scotland began in 1286 when Alexander III died leaving his infant grandchild Margaret to rule. In 1292, John Balliol was selected by some Scottish auditors to be King of Scotland. This caused a dispute on who should rule and King Edward I of England was asked to settle the dispute. John Balliol was Robert the Bruce’s rival to the throne. In 1292, at the age of 18, Robert the Bruce and his father pledged loyalty to Edward I at Berwick upon Tweed. Robert the Bruce’s lands and titles......

Robert Frost

...Robert Frost’s in “The Path Not Taken,” Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path,” and Jean Rhys’s “I Used to Live Here Once, ” focus on a common theme that is “Journey.” Although these three works of literature have a similar theme, each has a different point of view. Each of these show different paths and journey’s in which life may change. Although they are different, all three literatures have a common denominator. Each of these show the reader that regardless of which path in life a person chooses to take, life will always bring hurdles, and unexpected events along the way. Each of the three literatures offers different symbolism, characters, and historical context, although the theme of the three literatures is the same. Different people symbolize the definition of journey differently. While some people perceive a journey as a form of distance that they travel, many people forget that a journey may be a measurement or a milestone of progress in the making, and advancement in completing goals. As many people focus on the journey of the destination, they forget to recognize the accomplishments they are making along the way. The elation and excitement of an unpredictable expedition allow people to learn positive and negative things of different people one may meet while travelling and exploring different places that changes their though process, perceptions and ideas which later which certainly change a person......
