“The true test of the greatness of a work of art is its ability to be understood by the masses.”

- “The true test of the greatness of a work of art is its ability to be understood by the masses.” The statement "The true test of the greatness of a work of art is its ability to be understood by the masses;" is highly problematic. Art in itself has an ambiguous definition that combines concepts of aesthetics and personal emotion. When one thinks of art, it becomes clear that the definition of art is too abstract. Art can be anything from cavepaintings to heiroglypics and pottery. Does this mean that art as it is defined is too broad....   [tags: Art]

- Introversion has the greatest chance of negatively affecting SLA. Students that are afraid of embarrassing themselves by speaking incorrectly or by not being able to speak at all may try to avoid opportunities that would otherwise aid their learning (Zhang, 2008). Since 1960, personality has emerged as major field of specialization among doctoral candidates (Vance & Macphail, 1964). Many investigations have been accomplished followed by literature on a variety of theories of personality.

William Faulkner's Speech Put to Test in a Rose for Emily

- On December 10, 1950, William Faulkner won a Nobel Prize and gave an acceptance speech in Stockholm Sweden. In his speech he explained his trust and advice for future writers, and mentioned the importance to put their soul, sweat, agony, and heart into their work, only then can true work come about. As Faulkner spoke of this, it can only be wondered how this applies to his very dark short story, A Rose for Emily. This creepy text could be automatically by cast out as a depressing story about a woman who could never let go, but once put into deep physiological thought, it could be seen as an excellent example for Faulkner’s speech....   [tags: crazy, courage, heroic]

Education Reform : The State Of The Nation 's Attention, It 's Never A Good Sign

- ... The number of tests students must take each year is increasing, taking away from actual learning time and putting increasing pressure on student performance. Some teachers have had their curriculum and instruction time restricted by state-mandated tests, and students find themselves encountering high-stakes assessments on a yearly basis, where a single week or even day’s performance will determine whether or not they can advance or graduate. Many educators and parents are beginning to oppose this system, although Indiana policy is only beginning to reflect their concerns, first of which is the fact that any test quantifying intelligence is not a 100% reliable indicator of the true intell...   [tags: Education, Standardized test, School, Teacher]

The Twix Advertisement Issue

- Professional persuasion straddles many lines of ethicality. For Twix, the ethical dilemma came in the form of a candy bar in the hand of a cheating boyfriend. A bite of Twix pauses time long enough for the boyfriend to concoct a lie about the incriminating text message his girlfriend found on his phone. Based on the results of the TARES moral consequences test, it is unethical for Mars, Inc., to run this advertisement. The first measure of ethicality verifies the truthfulness of the message. As Bivins describes, “The communication should be factually accurate.” The Twix advertisement uses humor rather than deception to exaggerate the effects of the candy bar....   [tags: twix, candy bar, tares test]

Lewis's detailing of Satan's various images gives a strong image of the deterioration of character, but also a picture of the “loss of poetic energy or resonance”7 which was once applied liberally to his character.

A Flexible Gene-Based Test for Genome-Wide Association Studies

- Gene-based tests for association are increasingly being seen as a useful complement to genome-wide association studies (GWAS) [1]. A gene-based approach considers association between a trait and all markers (usually SNPs) within a gene rather than each marker individually. Depending on the underlying genetic architecture, gene-based approaches can be more powerful than traditional individual-SNP based GWAS. For example, if a gene contains more than one causative variant, then several SNPs within that gene may show marginal levels of significance that are often indistinguishable from random noise in the initial GWAS results....   [tags: Genetics]
