Walter Benjamin emphasizes in his essay, “The Work of Art in the Age of its Technological Reproducibility” that technology used to make an artwork has changed the way it was received, and its “aura”. Aura represents the originality and authenticity of a work of art that has not been reproduced. The Sistine Chapel in the Vatican is an example of a work that has been and truly a beacon of art. It has brought a benefit and enlightenment to the art of painting, and it has an exemplary aura that cannot be replaced. A picture taken of the Sistine Chapel is just an imaged “captured”, while the painting is still original, because it is not movable, and its cult value is still intact. He asserts that

In this essay I will be looking at how the political and intellectual ideas of the enlightenment have shaped New Zealand Education. I will also be discussing the perennial tension of local control versus central control of education, and how this has been affected by the political and intellectual ideas of the enlightenment.
The enlightenment was an intellectual movement, which beginnings of were marked by the Glorious Revolution in Britain. (Kramnick, 1995). The enlightenment movement continued evolving over the following centuries. The main aim of the enlightenment was to make the world more focused on the individual rather than the authority of one person. The individual was not longer

The theory of psychological egoism is indeed plausible. The meaning of plausible in the context of this paper refers to the validity or the conceivability of the theory in question, to explain the nature and motivation of human behavior (Hinman, 2007). Human actions are motivated by the satisfaction obtained after completing a task that they are involved in. For example, Mother Teresa was satisfied by her benevolent actions and activities that she spent her life doing. As Hinman (2007) points out, she was likely to reduce in activity if she experienced any dissatisfaction in her endeavors.
Therefore, no matter how much altruism theorists try to argue about the degree of

Every family has a unique background that influences the way they live and interact with other people. My parents, who emigrated from Ireland to the States with my three brothers in 1989, brought over their own Celtic folklore and traditions that have helped shaped the way our family operates and lives. One aspect of folklore that has helped shape my family dynamic is the Celtic cross—both its background and what role it has played in our lives. The Celtic cross has an extensive history in relation to Ireland, but it has a simplistic meaning in my family. The Legend of Finn MacCoul is another piece of folklore that has a different- but no less important- meaning in my family than its origins

At a time when women were looked upon as being homemakers, wives, mothers and such the late 1850's presented a change in pace for one woman in specific. Photography was discovered in 1826 and soon after the phenomenon of photography was being experimented with and in turn brought new and different ways of photo taking not only as documenting real time, but also conceptualizing a scene in which an image would be taken. Julia Margaret Cameron will forever be recorded in the history books as one of the first female photographers to make significant contributions to a field that was ruled by the male counterpart of her time.

Objective Protein-Energy malnutrition (PEM) and inflammation are common and overlapping conditions in hemodialysis patients which are associated with increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Adiponectin is an adipocytokine which is exclusively produced by adipose tissue. Few studies in hemodialysis patients have demonstrated that serum levels of adiponectin were significantly higher in malnourished patients compared to well-nourished ones. The aim of this study was to further elucidate the association between serum adiponectin levels and the nutritional–inflammation status of hemodialysis patients.

Between 1885 and 1908, Belgium’s Leopold II ruled Congo, a region in central Africa, as his personal colony, exploiting the resources and inhabitants for his own gain. Leopold allowed and encouraged Europeans and other Westerners to enter Congo and set up companies whose primary purpose was to gather rubber, which was abundant but difficult to get to in the Congo, using the Congolese as the laborers for the Europeans. Rubber gathering in Congo brutally exploited the inhabitants of the Congo, while at the same time robbed Congo of wealth, as the rubber was “sold” to the Europeans at prices far below what the rubber was actually worth. Only when others, specifically the British and the

Usually when someone hears the word “lottery” the first thing that comes to mind is a large sum of cash that people compete against highly impractical odds to win. Shirley Jackson’s story The Lottery might imply a similar conception based on the title alone, but the story is filled with unknowns never revealing exactly when and where the story takes place, or why the lottery exists; even what the lottery is isn’t revealed until the very end. Yet despite Jackson’s omission of details in The Lottery, she manages to create an overtone of mystery that compels the reader to grasp the world of the story rather than define it in terms of the physical world and form their own opinions.

I remember when I was a young child; I would always be scared whenever there was a severe storm outside that included thunder and lightning. This was especially true in the hours of darkness, when you could really see the lightning. As I grew older this so-called fear of lightning turned into a fascination for this weather phenomena. One of my most vivid memories of lightning as a young man was when I was flying to Florida, the plane was at an altitude above a thunderstorm, that was producing heavy lightning, watching the flashing of the lightning popping off as we flew above the clouds, it was one of the most amazing and beautiful things I have ever seen.

In Harlem between the 1920’s and 1930’s the African American culture flourished, especially in areas such as music, art, literature, dance, and even in film. This soon became known as the Harlem Renaissance. With the entire positive and the negative situations of this time period the African Americans still seemed to have it all. The Harlem Renaissance came about because of the changes that had taken place in the African American community after the abolition of slavery because of World War I and the social and cultural changes in early 20th century in the United States.

On January 27, 1972, Ralph Baer introduced something magnificent to the world. This something became well known as the Magnavox Odyssey. The Magnavox Odyssey was the very first video game console that was ever created; games like Roulette, Simon Says, Table Tennis, etc. were able to be purchased for the console. The system was a complete success, being as nobody had ever seen such a thing like it before. Baer’s invention of the Magnavox Odyssey was only the beginning of the advancements made to technology. Since we live in such a competitive society, it was almost inevitable for the Magnavox Odyssey to be topped. As history continued, we were introduced to the Atari 2600 VCS, Sega Genesis

"I don't want to talk about whether or not racial profiling is legal. Racial profiling is not an effective law enforcement tool." -- Eric Holder, 82nd Attorney General of the United States
Before any argument can be made against racial profiling, it is important to understand what racial profiling is. The American Civil Liberties Union, defines racial profiling as "the discriminatory practice by law enforcement officials of targeting individuals for suspicion of crime based on the individual's race, ethnicity, religion or national origin"(Racial Profiling: Definition). Using this definition we can determine that racial profiling excludes any evidence of wrong-doing and relies solely on

whose ideas of gender roles and identity are different from other children his age, but is anyone at fault? Does Bobby dress and act this way because of his own liking for girl-typed toys and clothes, or did his mother influence him? The big question is: are the types of toys and clothing parents buy for their children meant to introduce and reinforce gender role concepts, and do these attempts actually work?
The truth is that concepts of gender identity belong on the “nurture” side of the psychological “nature vs. nurture” debate. Humans are born a definitive gender, but the way that they identify with this gender is cultivated through the environment that they grow up in. If a girl is

to view myself as both an object and subject in doing this. Mead sees it as “the ‘I’ of this moment is present in the ‘me’ of the next moment” (Mead, 1967: 174) This approach is also extremely person centred, in both accounts of self we are an individual at the present time and an individual throughout time and action.
“The self is not so much a substance as a process in which the conversation of gestures has been internalised within an organic form.” (Mead, 1967: 178). The self may then simply be a set of gestures. The individual is only such through its actions. Does this place the individual peripheral to the stage? Surely we may take this as both an affirmation and rebuttal to the

A pervasive issue in education today is the college entrance exams. There are several college exams used in the United States and around the world. These include the SAT, the ACT and many other various versions of those tests. These tests are an unfair and ineffective measure to determine a student’s acceptance into college. These tests to do not measure a student’s ability to master a subject rather they measure aptitude which is ineffective. Not only do students need to achieve academically, but they are also advised to have extracurricular activities outside of the classroom. Race and gender also play a huge role in acceptance letters to universities forcing the acceptances to be unfair

In addition to the domestic roles women played in society, they also played roles in the trade and commerce.

She had great judgment for business transactions, and when she was widowed at age 54 she took over her husband’s business to ensure her children’s future. In her memoir, Gluckel describes her marriage as a business partnership, boasting that her husband would turn only to her for business

The truth is that as of 2010, 20% of the world's population goes on about their daily activities with no access to secure forms electricity. This statistic is most disturbing not only because of the amount of electricity taken for granted and wasted on a daily basis, but because access to secure electricity has become associated as a basic human right. This right has been recognized by intergovernmental organizations such as the United Nations, as well as non-governmental organizations and several independent nations. Access

A current protest receiving national attention in our media is the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protest. The Occupy Wall Street protest, along with other Occupy branch protests are essentially ineffective protests. When compared to successful protests in the past, they are not having as much success gaining public support. There are many reasons this could be the case. There is no clearly defined goal or a specified outcome resulting from the protests. They are managing their funds inefficiently and in many cities they are creating more

The members of the management team within these businesses need to make quick and accurate decisions which will often impact the company and all of its employees, possibly for years to come. One of the worst situations for one of these decision makers to find themselves in is when they know that all of the information they need is available; but they are unable to retrieve that information in an accurate and useful way. In no field is this truer than in the manufacturing industry, where one bad decision could cost the company millions of dollars

The man is later diagnosed with oculosympathetic palsy, also known as Horner’s syndrome (Kanski, 1990, p.65). The main ocular symptoms in Horner’s are a unilateral ptosis and miosis of the effected eye. This syndrome is caused by a disruption of the sympathetic nervous system, and can arise from a multitude of etiologies (Kanski, 1990, p.65).

Imagery is a primary literary technique a poet uses to capture the readers or listeners senses. We gain comprehension of the world through the use of our sense. Therefore, how the reader perceives a poem is always the most important aspect every poet considers whilst writhing. The images of a poem have the ability to appeal of each of our senses, taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight can all be heightened by certain aspects of poetry. The imagery of a poem has the ability to transport us into a different place or time, allowing the reader to experience new observations. When used correctly, imagery has the ability to form an understanding of different emotions the poet tries to address

In the beginning of the story, Marlow states, “Sandbanks, marshes, forests, savages,—precious little to eat fit for a civilized man, nothing but Thames water to drink.” Alluding to the Congo and her uncivilized people, Marlow embarks by stating this, only to change his mind as he continues down the river. As he penetrates deeper into the heart of darkness, Marlow is confronted with the true meanings of civilized and savage. This quote is used to draw one of the first contrasts in the book between the supremacy of the Europeans and the inferiority of the savages. The

A typical story is littered with details, explaining the history of the world the story takes place in, who the characters in the story are, all the while remaining correlated to the plot and subplots that drive the story forward. The story The Lottery by Shirley Jackson however does not follow these conditions, as the reader is left to interpret a majority of the story on their own as it progresses. Jackson is not the only writer to incorporate a style of selective exposition in their work; Raymond Carver is widely recognized for his rejection of explanation and the use of characters that do not always communicate with one another, both of which are elements which Jackson incorporates into

Advertising is designed to foster a desire to purchase goods and services, yet it is much deeper than that—advertising is a system of effective manipulation that twists the mentalities of those subjected to it. It shapes people’s views of the world and warps their connections to each other. Therefore, advertising not only shapes their personal values but also distorts them until their principles no longer come from within them. Thus, in my opinion, advertising, unless deeply rooted in high ethical standards, destroys any concept of community, common morality or deep bonding.
Advertisements thrust products and services at consumers that they deem necessary in order to be loved, beautiful
