The Role of the Gods in the Iliad
In the era of Homer, divine intervention was thought to be typical, and one of his foremost works, The Iliad, reflects this. Nearly all of the Greek gods are involved in the outcome of the Trojan War, which happens to be the background story of this epic poem. The gods are used by Homer to add twists on an otherwise standard plot of war. Evidently, the gods will be a powerful source of divine intervention and their actions certainly have significant outcomes on the Trojan War, and more importantly, the story of The Iliad. Zeus, very untypical of a Greek god in his lack of involvement in the Trojan War for selfish reasons, was portrayed as the father figure,...

The Character of Achilles
The Iliad by Homer is an epic poem that tells us about the famous Trojan War. Throughout this poem, Homer presented every character with their specific characteristics such as the role they played in each other lives, their flaws, and strengths and emotions that they evoked at particular settings in the course of this tremendous story. Achilles, the great Greek Warrior and principal character of this epic all along said things, did things and made choices that essentially took the story to a different direction. However, the question that still remains is if any of those choices changed Achilles himself. An analysis of books one, nine, sixteen, eighteen and twenty...

According to Karen Hunter, in 1949, Joseph Campbell published “The Hero With A Thousand Faces” which is a book that introduces his creation of the monomyth (Hunter). A monomyth is the concept of a single tale or story. The tale or story represents a mythological adventure being magnified in the rites of passage. Also, the myth goes around in a cycle and is repeated with different social and cultural references throughout the world. Furthermore, Leeming explains that, “the monomyth itself is an expression of the journey of the hero figure, of our journey through physical and psychic life, and of the evolutionary path of humanity to full consciousness” (Leeming). Homer’s use of Joseph...

Artistic Themes from Ancient Cultures: Greece and Rome
In this paper Christian suffering through religious expression is discussed as it pertains to ancient cultures through early Greek and Roman times.

Romans held their practical and traditional morality in high esteem, and appeared over confident in their military, ability to organize.
Looking at “culture” Romans usually seem obsessed with humanities in the form of music, dance, theater, art, literature and philosophy. In...

G.I. Joe has been a brand in the market for toys since its launch in 1964 with $3 billion in sales over the last 20 years, with 16% of the market share. Despite the brands success the GI Joe is positioned as a physical product, as appose to an all-encompassing brand and the toy market has volatile sales depending upon trends created by consumer demand. Hasbro is now challenged to take the G.I. Joe brand to the next level and market it in such a way that will allow the brand continues to thrive while preserving the brands legacy.
One major issue facing G.I. Joe besides their competitor Barbie (Mattel) is that the industry has changed drastically in the last decade. The target customer for...

African American music changed drastically during the film Dreamgirls. The film portrayed how African American music was centered on the feelings and emotions of the artist, with references to religion as well. R&B star Jimmy "Thunder" Early mentions early in the film that if is a part of a song, then the song must have some “soul.” This was a belief of African American artists at the time, which is the reason why the artists were only deemed successful within the African American community. Also, sex appeal was not deemed as necessary for the success of music in the African American community because music was viewed as a form of expression, not just a product to make music.

Negotiation is a fact of everyday life and each day in one form or another we are negotiating something.
In both our personal and professional day-to-day life we are negotiating, and what is to be noted is that most of the times we are not even aware of it.
Every day we are negotiating at work, starting with the job offer details and later on for any development opportunities, salary increases, training support, taking ownership of new tasks or processes or simply by handling work- related conflicts.
In the same way, our personal life is a result of our constant negotiation skills and this translates into obtaining better loan rates, longer payment terms, reassigning household tasks,...

Journal Assignment (Oil Market)
Throughout the past decade there has been constant discussion about the United States attaining most of its oil from the Middle East. In fact, many journalists and news feeds have theorized how the majority of American oil has been imported by the Middle Eastern countries, and have even gone to the extent to claim that the American “War on Terror” in Iraq was simply to attain more oil. Whether these conspiracy theories are true or not, import data on oil to the United States has proven otherwise. Peter Kiernan’s (2008) article “America is Not as Dependent on Persian Gulf Oil as Some Might Think” illustrates what his proposed title claims by...

Consensual Relationship Agreements Case Study
According to the text, a Consensual Relationship Agreement is a written contract to protect against employees who are involved in relationships in the workplace. (Hellriegel & John W. Slocum, Jr., 2011). For example, once two employees stop dating, one person may believe that the former partner no longer treats them fairly or ignores them when a promotion should be considered. It is at this point that the less senior employee could claim that a hostile work environment...

1) What could account for the reversal against expectation?
Answer: size of the mainland pool of species, lack of differences in dispersal ability among the mainland species, and competition between species.
2) Why aren’t all species equal in the larger context?
Answer: Some species live in much greater jeopardy of extinction than others. The rare species, the highly specialized species, the less competitive species, and the species having low aptitude for dispersal and colonization, all these species might be missing from a reserve system if the reserves were numerous but small.
3) Why should the number of extinctions be inversely related to reverse size?

Is asexuality a lack of sexual orientation and analogous to other sexual orientations and identities?
One of the most inescapable social assumptions is that all humans possess sexual desire (Cole, 1993; 192). A related assumption is that sexuality is not only something one does, but an identity or something one is (Weeks, 1986; Foucault, 1978, cited in Scherrer, 2008; 621).
Most inquiries into asexuality have approached it as either behaviour (lack of sexual acts) or a lack of desire for sexual acts. However, Scherrer argues that the complexity and variability of asexuality also encompasses those who are interested in romantic attachment but with limited or no physical contact,...

The view that working class children cultural deprivation is the reason of their underachievement can be very rightly true. Cultural deprivation is the lack of certain rules of behavior in social situations, values, belief that something is a worthwhile, attitude and skills these are all of what society calls “normal”. Working class children are less likely to succeed in life because they are less likely to be found in nursery schools, less likely to go to university and more likely to be poor readers when they start school, more likely to be in lower sets and streams in secondary school, more likely to leave school early, more likely to underachieve at GCSEs and a level, more likely to be...

No matter whether the discourse is of corporate social responsibility or of sustainability there exists a high degree of scepticism about the reality of corporate activity. Accusations of greenwashing – presenting a false picture – abound.
We argue that this is a legacy of past behaviour when such an accusation could reasonably be made about many organisations. Our argument is the CSR is a developmental process and changes as organisations mature in their behaviour and attitude towards both their stakeholders and their ideas concerning social responsibility. Of course we also acknowledge that there is a growing body of evidence to show that social responsibility behaviour becomes reflected...

Ye’s piece on the foreign policy in relation to the United States depicts the transmigration from President Bush to Clinton, and the “bad cards” which Bush passed on to him. The failure of Bush’s and Reagan’s “Reagonomic blueprint” resulted in a tripling of the federal budget deficit and government borrowing in excess of $3 trillion. Ye hopes that Clinton, as the head of the only superpower currently in existence in the world,...

Although modern-day humans have existed for what seems like a second in the evolutionary timetable, it is amazing to think that lactose tolerance has only existed for ~7,000 years at best. Most Americans regard lactose as being very crucial in their well-beings and work hard to incorporate lactose intake into their diets; this is the same lactose that is absent in the diets of millions upon millions of people around the world; this isn’t true because lactose doesn’t cater to those people’s tastes, but rather because lactose isn’t tolerated amongst all those...
