Themes From Chapter One of "A History of God" - ... To Christian Europe the radically different Muslim way of worship and lifestyle was seen as undomesticated. The Islamic view of God was perceived by the west as a completely different entity, when (according to Armstrong) it is in fact the same deity. Imagery depicting vicious battles between men in turbans and wild animals was extremely popular. In the mid-19th century Europeans were obsessed with Middle Eastern imagery, considering it exotic and exciting. The fact that it was so far away made it seem like another world: they treated this culture as a commodity....   [tags: Religion] 895 words

The Politicization of Intelligence History - ... According to Betts (1978) optimal decisions in defence policy depend on the use of strategic intelligence; the acquisition, analysis and appreciation of relevant data. Betts (1978, p. 61) argues that in the best known cases of intelligence failure, the most crucial mistakes have rarely been made by ‘collectors of raw information, occasionally by professionals who produced finished analyses, but most often by the decision makers who consume the products of intelligence services’. Nevertheless, a close relationship between analysts and policymakers is necessary to overcome barriers in communication and intelligence acceptance....   [tags: National Intelligence]

Body Art - ... Piercing has almost as long of a history as tattooing. It was practiced by Egyptian pharaohs, Mayans, and Romans (Armstrong, 1996). Body piercing is sometimes studied along with tattooing, partly because people with tattoos often have piercings (Buhrich, 1983; Frederick & Bradley, 2000). For women, ear piercing has come to be viewed as a mainstream practice but piercing eyebrows, nose, cheeks, or other areas appears to symbolize one’s disaffection from society, much like tattooing (Sanders, 1988)....   [tags: Social Issues, Tattooing] 884 words

How The Brain Works - ... Linking the mind to the brain would invalidate Searle's (1980) explanation that artificial intelligence is impossible because the brain is irrelevant when the mind is concerned. In other words, programs require machines to run, but the mind is independent of the brain. Recent findings suggest that the brain is directly linked to the mind, so even creating AI machines will be possible in the future because the mind is obviously linked to the body through the brain and the nervous system. Although new theories on human consciousness will obviously assist AI engineers, those theories will question the reliability of Dualism because they suggest that mind is a material substance that takes a certain space and creates certain manifestations in the body....   [tags: Anatomy, Nervous System] 1321 words

Value Delivery Network - Value Delivery Network A value delivery network allows many companies to create customer value that cannot be created by use of the company’s own value chain.

Agatha Christie And Deception - Deception is viewed as a negative term in society. However, in the genre of mystery novels, it is the essential key to its success. For the reader to want to continue on, he/she must be supplied with numerous possibilities for an ending. The only way one could provide such an abundant selection is with the use of deception.
