The Hindus believed that Untouchables were insignificant beings that were being punished for having been sinful or faulty in a former life, a mixture of ideas dealing with bad karma as well as reincarnation.

Achieving Synergy In Small Groups - Synergy comes from the Greek word sunergos which means “working together” (Morris, 1981). Synergy results from two or more people working together, sharing ideas with open minds and mutual respect, and managing conflict in ways that empower all members. This is the advantage of working in a group: the whole group is greater than the sum of its parts. (Harris and Sherblom, 2005, p.11) Synergy consists of two aspects: problem solving and interpersonal relations. (Adult Learners Guide, p.13) An in-class exercise served to illustrate the concept of synergy and how sharing other peoples ideas and working together produces better ideas to those of any one group member working alone....   [tags: Teamwork Synergy, Small Group Performance]

Winesburg, Ohio: The Struggles of a Small Town - Winesburg Ohio is a moving, intriguing book of short stories about the lives of people in a small town in Ohio.  Although each story seems to have  a different theme and meaning, with the only connection being time, place and George Williard, all the stories seem to  come together to a common, general  theme as well. This characteristic of this work has lead some critics to say it is a novel, but one without a clear joining thread. Literary criticism about this work by Sherwood Anderson seem to center around the debate as to whether Winesburg, Ohio is a novel or a book of short stories(Miller,1999)....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Sociality of the Neotropical Small Carpenter Bees - Abstract The origin of eusociality from solitary antecedents is one of the major transitions in evolution. Studies on highly eusocial insects such as ants and honeybees (i.e., those with obligate sterile and reproductive castes) offer limited insights to understanding this transition because all females are phenotypically differentiated into castes with no reversion to solitary life. Conversely, totipotent, flexible species capable of both solitary and social reproduction offer the comparative material to evaluate the relative roles of intrinsic genetic underpinnings versus extrinsic ecological conditions facilitating or impeding cooperative living....   [tags: Animal Science ]

In A Small Place, Knowledge and Power are Codependent - Knowledge and power are considered two of the most important assets of a society. In the context of Jamaica Kincaid’s A Small Place knowledge could be defined as a set of proficiencies or expertise attained through experience and education and power as a control of one’s own circumstances. While knowledge and power are individually definable, they do not exist in isolation. Knowledge and power are mutually constitutive to one another. In her aggressive and expository essay, Kincaid successfully demonstrates through the use of several examples, that knowledge, which is a necessary precursor to power, is severely lacking in Antigua, which in turn limits the power Antiguans hold over their own society....   [tags: Literature Analysis] 1844 words
