Discussion Response - Essay Example Government machinery was deployed in both cases to ensure that the leadersÃ¢â¬â¢ ideologies were implemented. This took the form of mass violence, the establishment of concentration camps, and strict control of every aspect of the peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s lives as you rightly state. I have learnt from you one main difference between Hitler and Stalin that never was on my mind; the faÃ §ades they presented in public. I like the way you put it; StalinÃ¢â¬â¢s speech and presentation in public light was positive while the actions he did or oversaw were quite the opposite, unlike Hitler who never minded what others thought of him. That said, I will like to add a point to your post in relation to the differences of the two regimes. While both regimes were oriented toward the good of the state as opposed to the individual, they were different in the sense that the Nazi movement focused on eliminating inferior races and people from the country while the Soviet regime was focused on eliminating class differences as noted by Kershaw and MoshÃ © (1997). In some sense, therefore, the two regimes used the same means (violence and strict controls) to meet different ends (establishing a pure Aryan state versus eliminating class

Comparing two Cds Essay Nelly produced 2 CDs called Sweat and Suit. He then made the combination of the two using both CD covers to make one. On the Sweat Cd he portrays himself as a cool gangster. Hes wearing a white beeney hat and a white vest, giving him the image of a sexy, muscular and strong man. The shades and jewellery is giving us an idea that maybe he is an expensive person and loves his money. Also he comes across as if you ever put him on an auction block he wouldnt be sold because he is priceless. The clouds behind him give him the impression that maybe his music does have much of a meaning to him, or it could be implying that during the day he is more of a chilled and relaxed sort of person. Unlike the Sweat CD the Suit backdrop seems to be of a street, which could be implying that maybe his music is more down to earth, and has a lot of meaning, and maybe this is when he gets in his zone and feels the happiest. I also get this impression from his clothes. He is looks more sophisticated, important and in control of everything, just because he is wearing a smart but casual black suit. He still keeps the bling and the hat though as though image is still one of the moist important things to him. These two images of him give us the idea that he might have a split personality, depending on who is around. The neon Nelly attracts your attention almost immediately because of the colour used. This I think is a tactic so his name can get stuck in you head. It also gives the cover a look of a casino or club, giving the cover a welcoming feel. This is different from the Sweat cover because his face grabs your attention first not his name and, his name blends more into the background and is of the same sort of colours. His facial expression on both CD covers and the main one, comes across as mean and serious, as though he is some one that shouldnt be messed with. I think it is a good idea that he has joined both CD covers because instead of just seeing one side of him you can see him as one. This way you can find out whether your assumptions were right or wrong, or whether you can find out anything more about him. The Sweat Suit is very clever as they have brought both the Sweat and the Suit faces to make one. The composition is cunning as well because they have made the face the centre, and main feature of the CD instead of making it smaller and shunting it to one side like they did on the other two albums. This is good because it grabs your attention immediately and stands out. The typography on his hat is like someone who has maybe graffito it and has also made it look gangster. Compared to the Nelly, Prince comes across very differently. Instead of having to guess what he meant by his title he basically spelt it out for you on the CD cover. Everything about it is different; the colours, the graphology and typography. On his Controversy CD he has made himself the centre of attention, but he has made himself small enough so you can see the background, which ties in with the title. He is wearing very 80s style clothing with a marching jacket, a bow tie, a shirt and waistcoat. The colours are very bland and not very exciting, although there are some studs and a brooch attached to the jacket. This shows that maybe they didnt have as much money in those days to spend lavishly or that coloured peoples music wasnt as recognised as it is today. The background is made up of newspaper clippings to do with god and whether you should believe in him or not. This was, and still is going on. Everyone says that you should believe in one type of god and if it isnt his or her god then you are a non-believer. I think this is one of the things he uses as an icon for himself, because it shows that maybe he does a lot towards spreading gods word, or showing everyone that god exists or not. The typography is in big bold writing so it stands out and you can read it easily. Prince is coloured in pink, and is positioned away from the image of him in the top right hand corner, right out of the way. His Emancipation Cd however is very different. It was only made ten yrs later but it is more alive and colourful. The composition is set out in a very clever and crafty way. In the centre of the CD cover is a picture of an elaborate male sex sign surrounded by chains. At the bottom of the cover there are two fists held up in the air. These could be symbolising either someone punching their fists up in the air because they know that they are now free, or they could be putting them up as if to get arrested. The fiery colours in the background could be expressing the persons feeling of anger or stress. During the last 30 decades I think the popularity of black solo artists has increased no matter what style of music it is. I also think that focus of black artists back then was not just on them but what the music is about. Unlike today where it just seems to be about the person and how cool and great they look.

HalleyÃ¢â¬â¢sComet Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Comets have amazed, interested, and driven scientists to study them often. Comets like the Hale-Bopp have been seen by millions of people. Since the discovery of comets, scientists, astrologers, or and even your next door neighbor have been interested in discovering or studying comets. Like HalleyÃ¢â¬â¢s Comet which has had a real impact on the history of comets. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã HalleyÃ¢â¬â¢s comet put on bright shows for the planet Earth ever since 204 BC, maybe even 1059 BC. Its most famous appearance was in 1066 AD, right before the battle of Hastings. It was named after Edmund Halley, who found out its orbit. He predicted that the appearances in 1531 and 1607 were the same comet that made a 76-year orbit. Halley died in 1742, never to see if his prediction should come true, which it did in 1758. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Only three comets were ever studied by a spacecraft. Comet Giacobini-Zinner was studied in 1985, Comet Halley in 1986, and Comet Grigg-Skijellup on July 10th, 1992. HalleyÃ¢â¬â¢s comet made appearances in 1835and then in 1910. Then after in 1984 and 1985, five spacecrafts from Russia, Japan, and Europe were launched to make rendezvous with the comet in 1985.

James C. Peterson, author of Why DonÃ¢â¬â¢t We Listen Better? Communicating & Connecting in Relationships, through trial and error learned the value of communication balancing in which he found that the counselor must listen awhile, talk until the other person stops hearing and then listen until the person calms enough to hear again. (Peterson, 2007 Pg. 5) This concept is enlarged into a process in which Peterson calls the flat-brain syndrome. The purpose of the writing of this book according to Peterson was to assist couples in gaining the communication skills needed to improve their relationship. In this book Peterson says to make personal connection with people communication skills need to involve the stomach, which puts our feelings into words, the heart which makes clear that we are putting our own feelings into words and the head which puts our thoughts into words. (Peterson, 2007 Pg. 16) Peterson says that he uses the flat-brain syndrome to understand the problem of failed communication. Peterson explains Ã¢â¬Å"communication is the lubrication designed to keep our functions of stomach, heart, and head working separately and togetherÃ¢â¬ (Peterson 2007, Pg. 6). The gifted Peterson also takes the concept of the flat brain syndrome a step further by relating to the reader what happens when our systems (stomach, heart and head) get out of whack. (Peterson 2007, Pg. 23) In this scenario Peterson uses these parts to show what happens to communication, for example stomach overloads, hearts might turn bricklike, brains can go flat, and hearing is altered. These things of course alter the way we hear and feel. These things then set us up to fall into the flat-brain syndrome. Peterson 2007 35-48) In part two Peterson explains the Ã¢â¬Å"talker-listenerÃ¢â¬ process or what he refers to as TLC which exhibits his feelings about the whole counseling process. Part three explains the techniques Peterson uses in listening and the traps one can fall into in the process. The process used by Peterson in this book relates things that he has tested and that work for the counselor. In closing Peterson makes clear that to Ã¢â¬Å"put wheels on your technique,Ã¢â¬ the counselor must exhibit warmth, genuineness and empathy. Why DonÃ¢â¬â¢t We Listen Better?Ã Communicating & Connecting in Relationships is a book written from the human counselor perspective. Peterson uses examples of everyday objects to relate positive plans for the counselor to put into action to achieve really positive results. Where many writers fail at connecting with their readers, Peterson brings a high level of understanding and process explanation simply by being down to earth in his communication. The whole goal of the book seemed to be to make a progressive and positive change in the process the non-professional counselor could use to aid and assist his counselee. From reading the title of the book one might think that listening is the key to the whole process but Peterson adds to the process by incorporating the qualities that pastor counselors should strive to achieve. Those qualities are caring for the counselee, genuine concern for them and the desire to point them at the real counselor. Reflection In reflecting upon the teachings of Dr. Peterson in Why DonÃ¢â¬â¢t We Listen Better? Communicating & Connecting in Relationships, I am reminded of a conversation I had with my middle son and his wife just recently. In particular this book has taught me that I need to listen better and that my boys and their wives are not children anymore. I serve as a missionary to the Navajo in Thoreau, NM. The area is desolate, dry, high and poor. My wife and I had provided a house for our son and daughter-in-law on the property of the church but the time came when they decided they needed to be in a big town where they could both work and do the things young people do. For my wife and I it was a terrible time. We love our kids and we have always been very close. My son tried to explain to me that he needed to find a good job and there were none in Thoreau and that they wanted to be independent. As I look back I realize how bad I was at listening to people that I love. I said it will cost you more than here and I am not going to support you so you can live in Albuquerque. As I think back I realize that I should have listened much better. All the things I told him came true and they came to me for help over and over. Some would say Ã¢â¬Å"well then why do you think that the listening thing was so important? The answer is a beautiful oneÃ¢â¬ ¦just the other day I offered to help him work on his car and he said to me Ã¢â¬Å"ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s O. K. dad I have saved up the money to get a mechanic. Ã¢â¬ Small thing to others I would say but to me he was showing me that he really had grown up. Investigation I must say that I enjoyed reading Why DonÃ¢â¬â¢t We Listen Better? Communicating & Connecting in Relationships. The book helped me to look at several realities about my life as well as my feelings compared to my reactions. I learned that the best way to have a positive relationship is to communicate. For many years the most important thing I feel that I have learned is the art of communication. Peterson has written theories that are effective and have been proven over time. Peterson has given himself to the problem of effective communication, to assisting others and to repairing and building relationships. The book was so easy to understand that I felt like I knew a lot about what Peterson was saying but I learned lots of new things as well. The talker-listener card strategy and the flat-brain theory are things that I will use in the future. It has been hard for me to listen attentively when the communication involves my kids especially when emotions are high but according to the flat-brain theory this is an area that I can work to improve upon. Peterson gives an excellent explanation about how the talker-listener card can work for me and my sons when issues like the one described above come about. Peterson has developed his processes from experiences he has had as a pastoral counselor. Why DonÃ¢â¬â¢t We Listen Better? Communicating & Connecting in Relationships has taught me to be a better listener and how to speak only when the counselee is actively listening to me. This is really a great book for those that want to learn to communicate with others better and to connect with the other party. Application As mentioned before I found this book to be very useful not only in my relationships with my family but also in dealing with the Navajo people in general. One of the things peculiar to many of the Navajo people is that they have specific ways of saying things that to the novice might not mean a whole lot but the talker-listener card methodology will help me in reaching out for their inner feelings, thoughts and desires. After reading this book I find many things that I can do to improve myself. When combined with the 7 Spiritual Gifts with 4 (DISC) Personality Types I have discovered some important information that will help me in my ministry. For example the spiritual gifts and behavioral blends specific to me are that my Primary Spiritual Gifts are Encouraging/Exhorting (58/60), Mercy (58/60) and Serving/Ministry/Helps (57/60). My behavioral blends say that what is expected of me is S/D but I am really C/S. My primary spiritual gifts were found to be: Encouraging / Exhorting, Mercy and Serving / Ministry / Helps. I plan to take the profile to heart mainly because some of the people that know me best have said that the profile was me exactly and I agree. I plan to use the suggested scripture to help me work on my weaknesses and to improve on my strengths. I have made a promise to myself and will ask God to help me to listen to what others have to say. I will incorporate a check system to improve my listening technique. I will actively try to listen to the problems of those seeking my advice. I will also attempt to share my thoughts and feelings without labeling, accusing or judging.

On November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted to divide the Middle Eastern land called Palestine into two independent nations, one Arab and one Jewish. On May 14, 1948, a new nation was born: Israel. The Jews of Israel and the world celebrated with joy and gladness, because for over two thousand years, they had hoped to return to the land of their heritage. (Silverman, 1) However with Jews from all around the world returning to Israel, the Arabs residing in this land were forced into exile. The rebirth of Israel marked the beginning of conflict, violence, and peace treaties between the Arabs and the Jews of the Middle East. Tensions between Jews and Arabs have been present since biblical times in the Middle East. In 132 AD, when IsraelÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦They attacked Jewish farm settlements, villages and cities. The British troops occupying Palestine did not intervene between the Arabs and the Jews. Instead the British supported the Arabs against the Jews, and the Jews against the Arabs. (Silverman, 61-67) As more Jews arrived, the economy grew and attracted Arabs to immigrate to Palestine. However, while the Jews were returning to their homeland, Arab nationalism was growing. PalestineÃ¢â¬â¢s Arabs rejected the Balfour Declaration, even though they themselves had little interest in a state of their own at the time. Before long, the Arabs opposed the establishment of any Jewish State in the Middle East. (Goldschmidt, 158) After 1945 and the Holocaust, which left 6 million Jewish men, women and children dead, the cause for a Jewish homeland, where Jews could be free of persecution gained momentum. In 1947, the United Nations voted to divide the Middle East between Jews and Arabs. The Jews agreed to this plan, while the Arabs rejected it. The Arabs would not recognize a Jewish State. Jordan and Syria also wanted Palestine to belong to them, and the Arabs of Palestine didnt see themselves as Palestinian, but instead as Arabs and wanted to be part of another Arab country.

Questionable Popularity of Euthanasia/Assisted Suicide A survey of U.S. oncologists suggests that support for euthanasia and assisted suicide in this profession has declined dramatically in recent years. The survey polled 3299 members of the American Society of Clinical Oncology in 1998. It found 22.5% support for physician-assisted suicide for a terminally ill patient with prostate cancer in unremitting pain, compared to 45.5% support in 1994. Euthanasia in this situation was supported by 6.5%, compared to 22.7% in 1994. Surgical oncologists were more likely to support these practices; Catholics, those who view themselves as religious, and those who say they have sufficient time to talk to dying patients about end-of-life care were less likely to do so. Those who oppose euthanasia and assisted suicide are also less willing to increase the dose of morphine for a patient who has unremitting pain despite previous pain relief efforts. This reticence, they note, probably reflects fear that increasing opioid dose increases the risks for respiratory depression and death and might be construed as a form of euthanasia. This view may be encouraged by proponents of euthanasia who have argued that there is no difference between increasing morphine for pain relief and euthanasia. The authors urge increased efforts to educate physicians on the ethical and legal acceptability of increasing narcotics for pain control, even at the risk of respiratory depression andShow MoreRelatedLgbt19540 Words Ã |Ã 79 PagesHeteronormativity * LGBT stereotypes * Queer * Religion and homosexuality * Religion and transgender | Prejudice / Violence | * AIDS stigma * Biphobia * Genderism * Heterosexism * Homophobia * Lesbophobia * Binarism * Sexualism * Suicide among LGBT youth * Transphobia * Violence against LGBT people * LGBT trafficking | Academic fields and discourse | * LGBT/Queer studies * Lesbian feminism * Queer theory * Transfeminism * Lavender linguistics | LGBT portal

Their father-in-law suggested they build their own company since both men had useful trades- Procter was a candle maker, Gamble a soap maker. The two officially became business partners in 1837 with the founding of Procter amp; Gamble. 2012 celebrates Ã¢â¬Å"175 years of innovationÃ¢â¬ and seven generations of providing the some of the most well known productsÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦The surge in revenues and development of product lines resulted in Pfizer moving to Manhatten in 1868 to support its rapid growth; the headquarters remained there for nearly a century. In 1880 Pfizer created citric acid and quickly becomes the leading product as Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola gain popularity and demand more of it. This marks another turning point in growth for Pfizer as citric acid launches this company into another market. 1899 marks the 50th anniversary of Pfizer Inc producing high-quality products in an efficient manner while consistently striving to produce greater products. A leader in the chemical business, Pfizer is anchored by the industrial and pharmacological industries. In 1919, research in citric acid allows Pfizer to develop it without having to depend on European citrus growers; this invention spurs chemist Jasper Kane to begin the process for unlocking the key for large-scale production of penicillin. 1939 marks the year that Pfizer is recognized for being the leading company in fermentation technology. 1941 to 1944 are pivotal years for Pfizer as they invest millions of dollars to produce over five times more penicillin than originally anticipated- a feat that earns Pfizer the Army-Navy Ã¢â¬Å"EÃ¢â¬ Award for being the worldÃ¢â¬â¢s largest producer of the Ã¢â¬Å"miracle drugÃ¢â¬ .
