An Analysis of Neutral Tones by Thomas Hardy - An Analysis of Neutral Tones by Thomas Hardy      "We stood by a pond that winter day," (1) This line indicates a still quietness, with lack of the movement of life. There is a vast difference in appearance and movement around a pond in winter and a pond in the midst of summer. This indicates no leaves, and no visible signs of life. The poet is painting a stark and lifeless scene. "And the sun was white, as though chidden of God,"(2) This is indicative of the modernist approach to light as being too harsh and not a positive factor....   [tags: Neutral Tones Essays]

Gender-Neutral English Language - Gender-Neutral English Language The English language has evolved through history in a male-centered, patriarchal society. The male orientation of English carries two complementary implications: being male is normative and natural; and therefore, not being male is abnormal and unnatural. The shifting of our language from masculine to gender-neutral may be awkward at first, and our children may wonder what all the fuss was about. The English language is always changing and the future will hold a gender-neutral language....   [tags: Papers] 2950 words

Compare Aurora Leigh and Neutral Tones - Compare Aurora Leigh and Neutral Tones      The frenzied growth and progress of the Victorian Era had worked itself into a ferment at the birth of the Modern Age. Whereas the Victorian authors and poets seemed to attempt to hold onto themes of the Romantics, emulation of the Classical Age and the application of epic format, the Modernists used more conversational language, but similarly to Romantics, turned to introspection as an inspirational source. However, most striking, is the change of mood of the literature from that of optimism and expansion of the 19th century, to that of early 20th century's "pessimism, sadness, and gravity" (Agatucci, 2001)....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

INTRODUCTION Considerable research effort has gone into Credit Derivatives since the early 1990’s.

This premise is also the cornerstone of loan pricing and credit risk management models the world over, including J.P. Morgan’s CreditMetricsTM.

alternative dispute resolution - Alternative Dispute Resolution or ADR refers to a number of various processes that can be used to resolve legal disputes other than by litigation. Recently, methods of dispute resolution which focus on arbitration, mediation and negotiation as an alternative to adjudication have gained notoriety. This notoriety may have been caused by the public perception that ADR methods are less expensive, more efficient, and more satisfactory than the normal traditional course of litigation. The goals of establishing these processes to resolve disputes as an alternative to more formal legal processes include: 1) to make the regular court system more efficient, less costly and more responsive to the needs of the litigants; 2) to offer alternative methods of dispute resolution in addition to the regular court system; and 3) to provide public education about the available alternatives....   [tags: essays research papers] 1011 words

Scientist - Scientists and the products of their work are far from ‘neutral.’ Rather than embodying neutrality, scientists are inextricably connected to the existing distribution of interests and power. White, male scientists over the centuries have attempted to use science as a medium for all their findings, which inevitably support their personal beliefs. In my experience, scientists are extremely intelligent, but particularly one-sided. Hearing the words ‘scientist’ and ‘neutral’ in the same sentence disturbs me--after all, scientists have tried to ‘prove’ an unlimited amount of times that blacks are innately less intelligent then whites, and that women are innately weaker and possess less natural ability in math and science than men do ....   [tags: essays research papers] 656 words

My interpretation of Lankshear's position is that he supports the idea of literacy as being best understood as a concept which comes into affect by its application in day to day life. I further assess his statement as literacy being also considered as the formation of ideas which forms the uses of literacy as well as creating an image to convey its use (Lankshear, 1987, p.50). The uses of literacy may be to communicate with one another or to participate in society by working, or to help others in need....   [tags: Papers] 2253 words

Neutralisation - Neutralisation Neutralisation is a process by which acids and alkalis react together weakening each other to ph7 which is neutral. When a substance is neutral that means it contains the same amount of Hydrogen ions (H+) as Hydroxide ions (OH-). When an acid and an alkali react a salt is made, the salt made depends on the acid and alkali used, for example hydrochloric acid plus sodium hydroxide would give sodium chloride and water. In this case the sodium takes the chlorine away from the hydrogen and it leaves hydrogen and hydroxide which then bond to make water, in this case the sodium chloride is the salt produced....   [tags: Papers] 4026 words

America In World War 1 - In 1914 when war was declared in Europe, America adopted a policy of neutrality and isolation. When news of trench warfare and the horrors associated with it reached the shores of America, it confirmed to the government that they had made the right choice.

Bradford Perkins presented a short but brilliant account on the root cause of the war, by offering two thesis’s to support the claim that the land hunger, the loss of commerce, and national honor were the main causes. Right from the start Perkins argued that the war of 1812 was the product of resentment at various British actions which challenged American sovereignty on sea, and on land....   [tags: War of 1812, USA, history,] 2483 words

The Concept of Secularism: Walzer vs. Wæver - ... Walzer stresses that if secularism is to triumph, it is crucial that the state be neutral among all religious and non-religious groups. Public state ceremonies should be distinct from any religious group. All holidays recognized by the state should be rooted in political history, such as the Fourth of July. If this were the case, Christmas should be removed from the Federal calendar, as it is Christian in nature. Unless the eight days of Hanukkah, Kwanza, or Ramadan, for instance, are recognized as national holidays, neither should Christmas, since it supports one creed over another, contradicting secularism....   [tags: Philosophy]

American resentment grew during the French Revolutionary Wars (1792-1802) and the Napoleonic Wars (1803-15), in which Britain and France were the main combatants.

Casablanca: Pro-allied Elements in the War Film - Audience members, when seeing Casablanca, would associate it as a war film, and I agree with that, but to be more precise, it is a pro Allie war film.

The timing of when the film was released also supports the idea of it being an anti Axis film. Although it was set in 1940, it was made a year after Pearl Harbor and America entering the war, but it was released right before the Allies had a meeting in Casablanca, so the filmmakers seemed to have wanted the audience to empathize with the Allies....   [tags: Film] 483 words
