General Electric's Corporate Social Responsability - I chose to look into General Electric for this project because they are an energy supplier and multi-national company.

It is easy for a person to assume that a corporation of GE’s size, money would be its only concern.

The company has been working to make the people of the planet more Earth friendly by creating technology that has higher efficiency with fewer emissions and lower resource demands....   [tags: energy supplier, general electric, csr]

Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - Concept of Charity in the General Prologue - The Concept of Charity in the General Prologue   In the "General Prologue," Chaucer presents an array of characters from the 1400's in order to paint portraits of human dishonesty and stupidity as well as virtue.  Out of these twenty-nine character portraits three of them are especially interesting because they deal with charity.  Charity during the 1400's, was a virtue of both religious and human traits.  One character, the Parson, exemplifies Chaucer's idea of charity, and two characters, Prioress, and Friar, to satirize the idea of charity and show that they are using charity for either devious reasons or out of convention or habit....   [tags: General Prologue Essays]

Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - The Wife of Bath as Depicted in the General Prologue - The Wife of Bath Depicted in the General Prologue       At the first reading of the "General Prologue" to the Canterbury Tales, the Wife of Bath seems to be a fairly straightforward character.  However, the second time through, the ironies and insinuations surface and show the Wife's bold personality.  For example, she is rather opinionated.  The second line in the passage, "But she was somdel deef, and that was scathe," seems only to indicate that she is a little hard of hearing.  However, coupled with a line from the end of the passage noting that she liked to talk, this deafness could mean either that she is really deaf and talks because she cannot hear what others say to her or that s...   [tags: General Prologue Essays]

General Gouglas Haig - "A general who wears down 180,000 of the enemy by expending 400,000 men...has something to answer for." This idea from military historian C.E.W Bean is the main line of argument from traditionalist historians. They represent General Douglas Haig, British Commander-in-Chief of the BEF from 1915 to the end of the war in 1918, in a critical, damning light: a hopelessly incompetent general with a willingness to sacrifice the men of Britain for a few metres of muddy ground. On the converse of this interpretation is a revisionist perspective of Haig as a caring ‘architect of victory’, bringing long-term achievements with his perceptive strategies....   [tags: Britain, Commander in Chief, War] 1867 words

General Douglas Haig - Within this assessment I will be responding to the question ‘Does General Douglas Haig deserve his reputation as the “Butcher of the Somme?” as a plentiful amount of historians criticise him for why multitudinous soldiers died during the battle of the Somme, essentially due to his poor battle plan, but alongside every event there is two sides to what has happened. The battle of the Somme arose because the British and French armies were required to relive German pressure off the French town of Verdun as well as gaining an expansion of territory....   [tags: The Butcher of the Somme]

Price’s quote elaborates the importance of public opinion within politics especially within a liberal democracy.

Othello: the General - Othello: the General     The character of the Moor in William Shakespeare’s tragic drama Othello is noble to the point of heroism, but unfortunately also gullible and susceptible to the sinister, destructive genius of his ancient Iago. The most radical change during the course of the drama is undergone by the protagonist, the Moor. Robert Di Yanni in “Character Revealed Through Dialogue” states that the deteriorated transformation which Othello undergoes is noticeable in his speech: Othello’s language, like Iago’s, reveals his character and his decline from a courageous and confident leader to a jealous lover distracted to madness by Iago’s insinuations about his wife’s infidelity....   [tags: Othello essays]

Before we can begin to answer this question firstly we have to understand the exact meaning of the word conservative.
