The Legend of Robin Hood

- The best-known feature of the legend of Robin Hood is the so-called ‘Robin Hood shot’. Robin is said to have been able to shoot an arrow at another one already sticking in the target, which he thereby split in half. A shot like this has definitively never occurred, simply because Robin Hood never existed. This does not mean that such a shot is not possible. To the contrary, this can be seen quite often and usually happens just by accident. Therefore, a ‘Robin Hood shot’ only makes an impression if it has been done intentionally and the archer announces it beforehand....   [tags: robin hood, arrows, hobbehod]

Robin Hood: A Thief or a Hero?

- ... Robin Hood was not a thief. He was simply taking what was stolen from the common people and giving it back to them. The leader of the country was the true thief. He charged outrageous taxes that the people could barely pay, and oppressed them when they could not pay it. (“Robin Hood: The Folk Hero” 2). This is what makes him a thief. Charging outrageous taxes that almost no one can pay is unnecessarily and maliciously taking something that belongs to someone else for your own benefit.

However, this method appears to be viewed more as an indisputable true evaluation of an organization, as opposed to an approximate gauge of an organization’s success. Weinstein himself has denounced the notion that the BC method is beyond reproach stating that the BC ratio should be taken, “as a ‘metaphor’, warning against taking the estimated numbers too seriously, and noting that one needed to exercise judgment with metrics as guideposts.” It seems as though some aspects of the credibility and validity of the BC method are being lost in...   [tags: Decision making, Critical thinking]

It officially ended de jure legal inequality, so it was no longer legal for employers, for landlords, or for any public institution or accommodations to discriminate based on race.
