Osborne Reynolds

- According to this image, the bunch of spheres in the first formation occupies (Square root of 2) times that of the second formation. It is interesting the fact that if a sack was filled with spheres arranged as in the first figure, it would feel loose, but a sack filled with spheres in the form of the second figure would feel rigid. Finally, Reynolds also made discoveries in the realm of ‘pure physics’. He showed that group velocities give the rate energy transmission by the wave (Gillespie, 1972, p.427)....   [tags: physical, mathematical sciences, history]

Look Back in Anger, by John Osborne

- One of the major themes that permeates throughout John Osborne’s play Look Back in Anger is the ideology of inequality among social classes.

Problem With My Team Partner Leticia Osborne

- After discussing my case scenario with my team partner Leticia Osborne she agreed that the situation is terrible and “with a smaller number of employees in your Orlando office that one would assume they would be able to handle management and scheduling even better than in the New York office that was so much bigger (Osborne)”. I loved interacting with her because I was able to get an opinion from an outsider, from someone that might be able to see the situation from another perspective.

Portrayal of Jane Osborne in Vanity Fair

- The Redundant Woman Thackeray’s portrayal of Jane Osborne in Vanity Fair is very troubling to the reader of the twentieth century. Grown to be a woman who is stuck under her tyrannical father’s roof, her life appears to be very confining and menial. Her sister snubs her, her nephew mocks her behind her back, her father mocks her to her face, and her main role in life seems to be as her father’s housekeeper. However, Thackeray’s portrayal would have had a very different effect on the Victorian reader....   [tags: Victorian Era William Thackeray]

Non-Marital Sex in John Osborne’s Inadmissible Evidence and Time Present

- In the post-war British society, there begins a tremendous revolt against authority in all domains of human life, pushing to the background the long-established and time-tested socio-ethical traditions and conventions. The conventional sexual morality that emphasizes repression and suppression of sexual instincts is replaced with new one that emphasizes expression of sexual freedom within and without wedlock. It has removed the stigma attached earlier to sex outside the marriage. What was previously considered as sin or bad thing comes to be accepted as a humanistic mode of self-expression....   [tags: healthy sexual attitude, promiscuity]

Critical Overview of Play Look Back in Anger

- Look Back in Anger Critical Overview Look Back in Anger has been recognized as a bombshell that blew up the old British theater.

The critical reaction was mixed, but many of the critics, whether or not they liked the play, acknowledged its merits and those of its young author....   [tags: John Osborne]

Class-Consciousness and Conjugal Relations in John Osborne’s Look Back in Anger (1957)

- It is generally suggested that Britain is essentially a class-conscious society where the upper classes are considerably preoccupied with the view of social position, the language and manners.

British literature throughout the Victorian period in particular and the twentieth century in general is a reflection of this manifestation of British society....   [tags: fidelity, honesty, mutual understanding, sincerity]
