1. What are the stages of development in Grusche’s relationship with Michael? At what point does she accept him as her own? Who do you think should get the child?
a. At first, Grusche shows pity towards Michael as he is a baby who has been easily forgotten and unwanted by his own mother. She is reluctant to take care of him as she tries to hide him under a blanket but out of sympathy, she eventually takes him with her. She soon abandons him at a doorstep with hopes of leaving him in the care of another person. She feels unsettled about it and returns to take Michael back as she becomes to accept him as her own. Gradually she becomes attached to Michael as she even risks her life for him. I believe Grusche should get the child because unlike the original mother, she genuinely loves and cares for him. She risked her life and took the time to raise the child unlike the original mother who was too preoccupied with her dresses than to care about her son.
2. Is Azdak just a judge?
a. As a judge of the law, one must act respectfully and honorably, however, Azdak does not do either. He uses the sacred law book as a pillow to sit on, accepts bribes and does not respect the parties that come before him to be judged. He passes nonsensical judgment and favors those who are powerless such as the poor, the oppressed and criminals who are good at heart. Instead of listening to one case at a time, he hears different cases at once and mixes up the facts pertaining to each of them. In the end of the play, it is because of the mixed up facts, that he passes a judgment of which he did not intend on doing. Although he does not intend on being an entirely just judge, his judgment lets everyone get what they really deserve.
3. What elements of this play and production are typical of epic theatre?
a. A typical epic theatre includes techniques of fragmentation, contrast and…...

Business Circle

...BUSINESS CIRCLE THEORY INTRODUCTION. The term business cycle (or economic cycle or boom-bust cycle) refers to economy-wide fluctuations in production, trade and economic activity in general over several months or years in an economy organized on free-enterprise principles. The business cycle is the upward and downward movements of levels of GDP (gross domestic product) and refers to the period of expansions and contractions in the level of economic activities (business fluctuations) around its long-term growth trend. These fluctuations occur around a long-term growth trend, and typically involve shifts over time between periods of relatively rapid economic growth (an expansion or boom), and periods of relative stagnation or decline (a contraction or recession).Business cycles are usually measured by considering the growth rate of real gross domestic product. Despite being termed cycles, these fluctuations in economic activity can prove unpredictable. History A BASIC ILLUSTRATION OF ECONOMY/BUSINESS CIRCLE. Theory The first systematic exposition of periodic economic crises, in opposition to the existing theory of economic equilibrium, was the 1819 Nouveaux Principes d'économie politique by Jean Charles Léonard de Sismondi. Prior to that point classical economics had either denied the existence of business cycles, blamed them on external factors, notably war, or only studied the long term. Sismondi found vindication in the Panic of 1825, which was the first unarguably......

Circle of Life

...R. BARON CIRCLE OF LIFE In his quote, Ogala Sioux Holy Man: Black Elk, discusses the concept that may be referred to as “the Circle of Life”. This concept speaks of how much of the Sioux culture, both religious and practical, attribute great importance to the concept and universality of “the circle.” This is both a cultural and religious worldview of many primary indigenous peoples, who observe the ongoing theme that much of life and our physical world is circular in both appearance and ideology. Everything from the earth, planets, and stars, are physically in essence, a circle. Likewise, nature both conceptually and physically adheres to this principle, from the revolving of the seasons, to the life cycle of birth to death. ( ) In this paper, I will look at the circle and cyclic importance in relation to most Primal peoples understanding and perception of reality. I will then contrast this with modern western cultural and religious ideas, of linear time, space and identity. Lastly, I will compare Black Elk’s ideas with that found in Contemporary Christian views of nature and creation. For the Primal or Indigenous people, religion and culture, the concept of the world, universe and nature, is based on the image of the circle. People and life correspond to two interrelated circles and cyclic events. The first is the great circle of life and the second is regarded as the “Annual circle. “( ) The big circle of life......

Cartesian Circle

...philosophers immersed himself in many aspects of life including both art and science. One major topic he addressed in great deal regarding philosophy was whether or not we could have absolute knowledge, including that of the external world. He is considered by many people to be a foundational rationalist. He used both the aspects of foundationalism and reason to prove it was possible to possess true knowledge. After finishing his meditations he felt he had indeed accomplished this task. However, many philosophers have found problems with his reasoning. One philosopher in particular, Antoine Arnauld, felt one of his most important proofs employed the use of circular reasoning to prove his argument. This has become known as “The Cartesian Circle”, and it has given rise to great debates over the years. This paper will set out to prove Descartes does in fact commit the error of circularity. Using foundationalism as a starting point Descartes starts with the most basic intuition anyone can have, “I think, therefore I exist”. This is a self-evident truth which is true because he clearly and distinctly perceives it, and it is impossible to doubt. Throughout the rest of his meditations he uses a series of intuitions to reason the truth of the external world. Once he has nearly proved its existence he was forced to prove God exists and God was not a deceiver in order to rid the skeptical argument of an evil demon constantly deceiving us. Eventually Descartes is able to......

Circle of Life

...Angel Batton Int.244 The Circle of Life Dec. 7, 2014 In this essay I will be talking about several things one will be the thoughtful and insights the American Indians have in their spirituality. The second would be the contrast of more undeviating time, universe, also ideas of current ethnic religions. I wish to attempt to associate Black Elk's impressions with the Christian sight of nature and intention of Creation. In his younger days, Black Elk was an Oglala, Lakota faith healer. Farther along now in his lifetime, a committed Classical Catholic. Black Elks quotation “the Circle of life” is an explanation of in what way the circle or sacred ring held important control and defense for the Lakota people. Next demonstrates just how Black Elks Primal spiritual worldview and later his Christian worldview have directed him through his life. The harmony of the Lakota people was evident in their use of circle arrangement. The circle is an emblematic of unity and social solidarity, as in the formation of their teepees and Lakota camp. The camp circle or sacred hoop is a place where everything is harmless, well-informed, and Oglala. Outdoor the circle, it is a world filled with enemies, evil spirits and the white man. Just as then, as it is today, societies have the same unity and social harmony as the Lakota people did. (DeSersa, Esther Black Elk,) The Black Elk made statements such as “So I used to lead two lives: one, Indian religion, and one as a Christian.” For the......

Four Circles Model

...The Four Circles Model The Four Circles Model Merriam-Webster defines belief as the acceptance or assurance that something is true. Belief takes faith, because sometimes there is no evidence to support what a person believes. In every successful career you will find someone who first believed; in every successful career that was challenging, you will find someone who had faith. This paper will focus on the Four Circles Model that is founded on what a person believes. It will identify how the Four Circles Model is reflected in my present school, recognize improvements in each of the areas, and how curriculum changes can affect those improvements. The Four Circles Model The Four Circles Model is made up of four segments: what we believe, what we want, what we know, and what we do. The first section, what we believe, is one of the most important sections because of the influence that it has on the other three sections. What we believe as educators can determine what we want for our schools and students; what we know can influence what we believe, and they all ultimately end up influencing what we end up doing. At Edward W. Bok Academy, the Four Circles Model is evident in the school’s culture. Beginning with the first segment of the Four Circles Model (what we believe) we believe that all students have the right to education and ensuring high-level learning is ingrained in our system. Once you enter Bok Academy’s campus, it is obvious what we want to......

Piece of Chalk

...A PIECE OF CHALK Q-What was the controversy between the old woman and writer on the brown paper? In the summer holidays he went into the kitchen (which along with the rest of the house) by putting six very bright colored chalks in his pocket. He asked the owner of the kitchen if she had any brown paper. She mistook the purpose and the rationale of the existence of brown paper. She seemed to have an idea that if a person wanted brown paper he must be waiting to tie up parcels, which was the last thing he wanted to do indeed. Hence she dwelt very much on the varying qualities of toughness and endurance in the material. He explained to her that he only wanted to draw pictures on it, and he did not want them to endure in the least; and that from his point of view, therefore, it was a question not of tough consistency but of responsive surface, a thing comparatively irrelevant in a parcel. When she understood that he wanted to draw she offered to overwhelm him with notepaper, apparently supposing that he did his notes and correspondence on old brown paper wrappers from motives of economy. He then tried to explain the rather delicate logical shade, that he not only liked brown paper, but quality of brownness in paper. After that he put that brown paper in his pocket and other things and went out on to the great downs. Q- What type of drawing did the writer do in the story? Discuss his thoughts about nature. When he went on to the great downs, he crawled across those colossal......

...the Greeks by pretending to be Achilles and thus frightening the Trojans. Leading Achilles’ men, the Myrmidons, into battle, Patroclus fights valiantly but is killed by Hector’s spear. Achilles grieves terribly and decides to return to battle to avenge this death. Thetis, seeing she can no longer hold her son back, gives him armor made by Hephaestus himself. The Trojans soon retreat inside their impenetrable walls through the huge Scaean gates. Only Hector remains outside, clad in Achilles’ own armor taken from Patroclus’s corpse. Hector and Achilles, the two greatest warriors of the Trojan War, finally face one another. When Hector sees that Athena stands by Achilles’ side while Apollo has left his own, he runs away from Achilles. They circle around and around the city of Troy until Athena disguises herself as Hector’s brother and makes him stop. Achilles catches up with Hector, who realizes the deception. They fight, and Achilles, aided by Athena, kills Hector with his spear. Achilles is still so filled with rage over Patroclus’s death that he drags Hector’s body over the ground, mutilating it. He takes it back to the Greek camp and leaves it beside Patroclus’s funeral pyre for dogs to devour. Such disrespect for a great warrior greatly displeases the gods, who convince Priam to visit Achilles and retrieve Hector’s body. Priam speaks to Achilles, who sees the error of his ways. The Iliad ends with Hector’s funeral.......... The war itself does not end with Hector’s......

Story About the Chalk

...Can you imagine that everything around us is alive? Pen, book, toy, everything and even a chalk. Imagine that they have their own world with love, hatred, happiness, disappointment, injustice and many other human's feelings. When I was a little girl I believed that my toys were alive, and when I went to bed they started behave like people and did their own business. That is why I have never offended them and spoiled. I believe that they are alive and feel even a pain. I want to share with you with one very instructive story. I do not know is it a real story or not, maybe it is happening right now. Who knows... It was a bright sunny day, aroma of the blossomed flowers soared in air, birds chirped so loudly that it seemed you are in a thicket but not in the center of the noisy city. There were many elegant children with flowers in their hands on the streets. It was the 1st of September. - I'm so excited. It is my first work. I don't know how I should behave- the vase very quickly told. - Just stay without moving and stop talking! It irritates.- the blackboard muttered. Everything in the classroom were talking, they discussed an interesting theme for them. It was about new 3 pieces of chalk. Why they discussed them? Because chalk it was like an authority so was always. But always there was only one piece of chalk, and now them was 3. All were perplexed. How it is possible to have three rulers in the same time. - I guess there is nothing to discuss, I will be the only......

Circle of Influence

...Circle of Influence Building a circle of influence is an essential tool in growing into a leader and life changer. My interpretation of circle of influence = positive energy. When you have a team of positive people in your life at school, home, work and within your family and friends… It contributes to not only a healthier lifestyle, but a lifestyle of purpose. There is nothing like going through this world knowing who you are, what you want, where you are going and having a support system to see you through. What captured my attention with this article is the tagline paraphrased: The key element to building a circle of influence starts with trust. You have to first trust God. God centers you around people, places, things and situations to put you in position for what he has in store for you. Even when the going gets rough, you still have to trust that if God brings you to it, he will bring you through it. Secondly, you have to trust yourself, you have to trust the intuition that God gave you and you also have to trust your judgment, by using discernment. When you trust yourself, you tend to go first, with your gut. Usually, if something doesn’t seem right, it usually isn’t. However, I believe that everyone deserves a 1st and 2nd chance. The article continues is a professional advertisement for a sales coach. He stated that leadership is failing for lack of trust. He stated that most leaders say what people want to hear, instead of how what they truly stand......

The Circle Flow

...The Circle Flow By Leanne Hall ECON224-1203A-06 Edward Hale American InterContinental University June 14, 2012 Abstract In this I will explain and define what open and closed systems are. I will be examples of both. I will also explain the inner and outer flows of both systems. In an open system there are injections, leakages, and I will explain, define them, and I will also give examples of both an injection, and a leakage. Economics is a very interesting subject to learn about. Learning about how the economy works, being able to understand how to depict the graphs. For most people they do not know the meanings of open and closed systems. These systems are the heart of how money flows through a circular flow system. Within the flow system there are loop holes that are what they call injections, leakages. With the flow system it is easy to understand once a person knows and is able to define what open, and closed systems means in the economic world. There are two economic models that show how the flow of money goes in our economy. According to our text book a closed system only counts the domestic trades within our country. They do not count any of the foreign goods or exports that are brought in (Macroeconomics, 2012). When a person needs to go buy groceries they enter the goods market to get that product. Companies enter the factor market. When looking at a chart there is a large circle then a smaller circle in the middle. The outer circle......
