- CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM – CEREBELLAR SYSTEM Though many books include cerebellar examination as part of the motor exam, it is discussed as a separate category in view of its importance. As children with cerebellar diseases are not frequently seen in routine clinical practice, candidates tend to neglect this system in their preparation and hence find it difficult in the exam. Cerebellar assessment involves examination of the gait and co-ordination, which tests both cerebellar midline and hemispheric function....   [tags: Medical Science]

Analysis Of The Poem ' Woman At Point Zero '

- Throughout Woman at Point Zero, Saadawi furthers the character development of the protagonist, Firdaus, by frequently repeating noteworthy phrases that grabs the reader’s attention. Though this seemingly overused literary technique may seem like lethargic writing, Saadawi’s purposeful reiteration of thematic concepts reveals a subtle attempt to depict Firdaus as a strong feminine character that is stuck in a vicious cycle of pain that is forced onto her by society. This underlying conflict helps illustrate the juxtaposition between Firdaus’ strong character and the oppression she faces, allowing Saadawi to delve into a deeper, more politically driven theme in her book....   [tags: Free will, Determinism, Middle East, Woman]

Woman At Point Zero And Pillars Of Salt

- The female body is simply a vessel that a patriarchal society makes use of or suppresses for their own agenda in the race to obtaining power. Unlike a man, a woman occupies her appropriate place in a patriarchal society with the predetermined notion that her sexual services are appropriately reserved in obedience to the patriarchal prerogative. Her virtue lies in what she does and does not do. In the two novels, Woman at Point Zero and Pillars of Salt, the female characters seek to expose and condemn the ideological trappings which pacify patriarchal societies....   [tags: Sociology, Gender, Patriarchy, Gender role]

The Great Turning Point Was A Pre Reformers

- In the course of the hundred and fifty years preceding the Reformation, the Church strengthened its temporal authority and, through the expedient of Indulgences, monopolized a power which, it believed, was its God given prerogative. Even more than the rifts opened up by the great schism in the West, the work of the Englishman John Wycliffe and the Czech John Hus gave clear warning of the upheavals of the sixteenth century. All things considered, the great turning point was the combination of changes from which Latin Christendom had emerged....   [tags: Catholic Church, Protestant Reformation, Pope]

The Yellow Wallpaper from the Point of View of a Doctor's Wife

- The Yellow Wallpaper from the Point of View of a Doctor's Wife "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, is a story told from the first person point of view of a doctor's wife who has nervous condition. The first person standpoint gives the reader access only to the woman’s thoughts, and thus, is limited.

The point of view is also limited in that the story takes places in the present, and as a result the wife has no benefit of hindsight, and is never able to actually see that the men in her life are part of the reason she never gets well....   [tags: Papers]

The Central Part of Berkeley's Metaphysics

- The Central Part of Berkeley's Metaphysics The central part of Berkeley’s metaphysics seems paradoxical or even absurd. Its claim is that what we call solid, and indeed everything else that we find laid out in the three-dimensional physical word that is apparently around us, is only fictional. It appears to be there, but it does not really have an independent existence. The physical world is, according to Berkeley, dependent on and only perceived through a mental state. In Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous, Berkeley tried to explain how a seemingly noncommonsensical theory can actually consist of commonsensical characteristics....   [tags: Papers]

Many of the differences of opinion will never be resolved by some unifying theory, as power is an ‘essentially contested concept’ (Lukes 1974, 2005: 137).
