English Vs. Math Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã To most people English or Language Arts is a creative course and math is just a logical, you get it or you donÃ¢â¬â¢t class. My purpose writing this paper is to change your mind. I believe that Math is just as, or more creative than English. I will demonstrate this through a couple of examples. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã First, we must understand what is behind the creative aspect in English. Most people consider that English is the, Ã¢â¬Ëcreative,Ã¢â¬â¢ subject because of titles such as Ã¢â¬Ëcreative writingÃ¢â¬â¢ and Ã¢â¬Ëcreative thinkingÃ¢â¬â¢ and in contrast there is no creative something in math. In English when we are, letÃ¢â¬â¢s say, going to write a creative short story we use our imaginations and there are no limits. Now on the other hand in math when faced with a problem such as; if you have 300 meters of fence and have to enclose a rectangular field. What would be the dimensions of the field that would yield the largest area? When mathematicians go to solve one of these they have to be creative in their problem solving. Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Perhaps, one of the best ways to demonstrate creativity in math is through an identity question. An identity question is where you have an equation and you try to manipulate each side individually without touching the other side and get them to be equal. We start off with something like sin squared theta over cos theta plus cos and the objective here is to prove that it is identical to sec theta. At...

Intro: Fairy tales are things we know to be true. We are believed that if we have a hard life to grow into, a Ã¢â¬Å"princeÃ¢â¬ one day will come and give us a kiss and make it all better. Ã¢â¬Å"bring us back to lifeÃ¢â¬ if you will, as we grow up we open our eyes to the possibility of landing flat on our face and throwing up a poisonous apple and dealing with life on our own before our Ã¢â¬Å"princeÃ¢â¬ comes to save us. Thesis: Betrayal and Jealousy may throw a pity party for the step-mother. The betrayal of a husband and insecurities in yourself will bring out the worst in you.Meaning of the poem: The poem Ã¢â¬Å"The Envious HeartÃ¢â¬ was written by Helane Levine Keating, was written in inspiration by the quote portraying the tale of Snow White, by the Brothers Grimm, Ã¢â¬Å"Then her envious heart had rest, so far as an envious heart can have rest. Ã¢â¬ written by the Brothers Grimm. This poem is how negativity ruins us all. How broken promises and wanting to be en ough of something or perfect at anything will destroy our once kind hearts. As betrayal was showed in the quote Ã¢â¬Å"He said he rarely saw her, although she was his daughter. Giving a fair meaning of how she thought it would just be her king and her and no one would interfere, her jealousy was shown when she stated Ã¢â¬Å"When they're together she's his queen, the black-eyed slut, calling him daddy. Ã¢â¬ letting the worse of her become her words. The mirror held great representation throughout the poem, she said that the mirror made her feel invincible; all she sees in the mirror is Ã¢â¬Å"her sneering face, her wide lips mimicking mine. Ã¢â¬ No matter how pretty the step mother may have been she never acknowledged herself but rather the step daughter.She felt disrespected and less then what the king had promised her. She was a step mother coming into a new family and her insecurities ate at her until it became her. To better understand where she is coming from, IÃ¢â¬â¢ll tell you about the Brothers Grimm version of Snow White. The Brothers Grimm story of Ã¢â¬Å"Snow WhiteÃ¢â¬ tells a tale about a queenÃ¢â¬â¢s wish for blood red lips, black as ebony hair and white as snow skin. Sadly after her wish was granted, the Queen and newly mother passed away. Her kind married a new queen after a year of her death. The new queen who could not tolerate anyone else who might rival her beautyÃ¢â¬ . The story shows a mirror which claimed to be magical. Ã¢â¬Å"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who in this realm is the fairest of them all. Ã¢â¬ which would make her so happy when the mirror replied with Ã¢â¬Å"You, my queen are the fairest of them all. Ã¢â¬ The Brothers Grimm, Snow White's step mother grew so much hate towards her step daughter and the envy in her heart Ã¢â¬Å"grew so dense that she no longer had any peace, day or nightÃ¢â¬ , she hired a huntsman to kill her, and that huntsman who didn't want to kill, let Snow White go as she promised to nev er go home.That's where in the tale the seven dwarfs come in. Snow White found their home and stayed in the seventh dwarfÃ¢â¬â¢s bed. When they found her they were stunned by her beauty, Snow White told them about the huntsman trying to kill her and of her step mother. So the dwarfs told her to be their house lady, doing all their chores (Cooking and cleaning) the secrets of her life was kept. Until her step mother asked her Ã¢â¬Å"Magical mirrorÃ¢â¬ , if she was pretty and it replied Ã¢â¬Å"Ã¢â¬ ¦ eyond the mountains, where the seven dwarfs swell, Snow White is thriving, and this I must tell: Within this realm, she's still a thousand times more fairÃ¢â¬ leading the step mother to set out to kill Snow White once and for all. She disguised herself and sold a lace to Snow White, and then tied the lace around Snow White; she tied it so tight Snow White fell down as if dead. When the dwarfs found her later on, they untied her lace and Snow White began to breathe again.The queen found out from her Ã¢â¬Å"Magical mirrorÃ¢â¬ that Snow White recovered and thought of another plan to rid of her. She got a combed and made it poisonous. She went out to the house once more and set out to comb Snow White's hair. Snow White fell unconscious. When the dwarfs came back and saw her they removed the comb from her hair and Snow White lived. Once again the queen asked her mirror and once again Snow White was the fairest. Finally, leading to the famous poisonous apple.Leading to Snow White's death and her Magical Mirror finally said Ã¢â¬Å"You, my queen are the fairest of them all. Ã¢â¬ The dwarfs set up a grave above the ground. Clear so, that everyone could see and her name in gold with Ã¢â¬Å"princessÃ¢â¬ written on it, the placed it at the top of the mountain. Many years passed and it looked like Snow White was only sleeping. Later a prince found her, saw her beauty and had to have her. While his servants were transporting her back to his kingdom the piece of a pple stuck in her throat fell out and she was unpoisioned, and alive.The prince rushed by her side and told her his love for her. They got married and at their wedding, the step mother put on these shoes that made her dance until she fell down dead. The Brothers Grimm's version of Snow White starts off so similar in comparison to Snow White the Walt Disney adaptation. I mean it sounds familiar right? Snow White and the 7 dwarfs, step mother obsessed with being the Ã¢â¬Å"fairest of them allÃ¢â¬ , there's a difference between the Ã¢â¬Å"love will solve everythingÃ¢â¬ we were all told to believe in and the story written by the Brothers Grimm.In Disney, the prince kisses her and they all live happily ever after. This poem is a representation on the story, but in a different point of view, see; the story that has always been told weather it's the Grimm Brothers or the Walt Disney story the step mother is the villain. Yet in this poem you see more than the one sentence of Ã¢â¬Å"a y ear later, the king married a new queenÃ¢â¬ . You see the jealousy for Snow White in a different light and betrayal from the king.

Spartacus (approximately 100Ã¢â¬â71 BCE), was a gladiator from Thrace who led a major revolt against Rome. Little is known about this fighting slave from Thrace beyond his role in the spectacular revolt that became known as the Third Servile War (73Ã¢â¬â71 BCE). Sources agree, however, that Spartacus had once fought for Rome as a legionnaire and was enslaved and sold to become a gladiator. In 73 BCE, he and a group of fellow gladiators rioted and escaped. The 78 men who followed him swelled to an army of more than 70,000, which terrified the citizens of Rome as it plundered Italy from Rome to Thurii in present-day Calabria. Fast Facts: Spartacus Known For: Leading a slave revolt against the Roman governmentBorn: Exact date unknown but believed around 100 BCE in ThraceEducation: Gladiatorial school in Capua, north of NaplesDied: Believed in 71 BCE at Rhenium Early Life While little is known about Spartacuss early life, it is believed that he was born in Thrace (in the Balkans). It is likely that he actually served in the Roman Army, though it is unclear why he left. Spartacus, perhaps a captive of a Roman legion and perhaps a former auxiliary himself, was sold in 73 BCE into the service of Lentulus Batiates, a man who taught at a ludus for gladiators in Capua, 20 miles from Mount Vesuvius in Campania. Spartacus trained at the gladiatorial school in Capua. Spartacus the Gladiator In the same year that he was sold, Spartacus and two Gallic gladiators led a riot at the school. Of the 200 slaves at the ludus, 78 men escaped, using kitchen tools as weapons. In the streets, they found wagons of gladiatorial weapons and confiscated them. Now armed, they easily defeated the soldiers who tried stopping them. Stealing military-grade weapons, they set out south to Mount Vesuvius. Three Gallic slavesÃ¢â¬âCrixus, Oenomaus, and CastusÃ¢â¬âbecame, along with Spartacus, the leaders of the band. Seizing a defensive position in the mountains near Vesuvius, they attracted thousands of slaves from the countrysideÃ¢â¬â70,000 men, with another 50,000 women and children in tow. Early Success The slave rebellion happened at a moment when Romes legions were abroad. Her greatest generals, the consuls Lucius Licinius Lucullus and Marcus Aurelius Cotta, were attending to the subjugation of the Eastern kingdom of Bithynia, a recent addition to the republic. The raids carried out in the Campanian countryside by Spartacus men fell to local officials to mediate. These praetors, including Gaius Claudius Glaber and Publius Varinius, underestimated the training and ingenuity of the slave fighters. Glaber thought he could lay siege to the slave redoubt at Vesuvius, but the slaves dramatically rappelled down the mountainside with ropes fashioned from vines, outflanked Glabers force, and destroyed it. By the winter of 72 BCE, the successes of the slave army alarmed Rome to the degree that consular armies were raised to deal with the threat. Crassus Assumes Control Marcus Licinius Crassus was elected praetor and headed to Picenum to put an end to the Spartacan revolt with 10 legions, some 32,000 to 48,000 trained Roman fighters, plus auxiliary units. Crassus correctly assumed the slaves would head north to the Alps and positioned most of his men to block this escape. Meanwhile, he sent his lieutenant Mummius and two new legions south to pressure the slaves to move north. Mummius had been explicitly instructed not to fight a pitched battle. He had ideas of his own, however, and when he engaged the slaves in battle, he suffered defeat. Spartacus routed Mummius and his legions. They lost not only men and their arms, but later, when they returned to their commander, the survivors suffered the ultimate Roman military punishmentÃ¢â¬âdecimation, by order of Crassus. The men were divided into groups of 10 and then drew lots. The unlucky one in 10 was then killed. Meanwhile, Spartacus turned around and headed toward Sicily, planning to escape on pirate ships, not knowing that the pirates had already sailed away. At the Isthmus of Bruttium, Crassus built a wall to block Spartacus escape. When the slaves tried to break through, the Romans fought back and killed about 12,000 of the slaves. Death Spartacus learned that Crassus troops were to be reinforced by another Roman army under Pompey, brought back from Spain. In desperation, he and his slaves fled north, with Crassus at their heels. Spartacus escape route was blocked at Brundisium by a third Roman force recalled from Macedonia. There was nothing left for Spartacus to do but to try to beat Crassus army in battle. The Spartacans were quickly surrounded and butchered, although many men escaped into the mountains. Only 1,000 Romans died. Six thousand of the fleeing slaves were captured by Crassus troops and crucified along the Appian Way, from Capua to Rome. Spartacus body was not found. Because Pompey performed the mopping-up operations, he, and not Crassus, got credit for suppressing the rebellion. The Third Servile War would become a chapter in the struggle between these two great Romans. Both returned to Rome and refused to disband their armies; the two were elected consul in 70 BCE. Legacy Popular culture, including the 1960 film by Stanley Kubrick, has cast the revolt led by Spartacus in political tones as a rebuke to slavery in the Roman republic. There is no historical material to support this interpretation, nor is it known whether Spartacus intended for his force to escape Italy for freedom in their homelands, as Plutarch maintains. The historians Appian and Florian wrote that Spartacus intended to march on the capital itself. Despite the atrocities committed by Spartacus forces and the splintering of his host after disagreements among the leaders, the Third Servile War inspired revolutions successful and unsuccessful throughout history, including Toussaint Louvertures march for Haitian independence.

Media is not a new concept and has been in existence since spoken word. The evolution of media has changed greatly and is currently in the golden age of televised, printed, and internet based consumer interaction. These new forms of media allow near instant interaction with a channelÃ¢â¬â¢s staff of actors, anchors, journalists, meteorologists, news experts, and models. Recently, news stations have been under intense scrutiny for their continued inadequate role in the advancement of women in the workforce and their disregard for how women are over-sexualized. Televised news has been traditionally a male dominated career in the United States since the introduction of radio news casts in August of 1920. While women worked as small stories journalists, editors, receptionists, and clerks for these media companies women had very limited opportunities for advancement in their careers while working for a fraction of the salary and hourly pay as their male counterparts. The struggle for the progression of women has been a constant topic in the field of news media as women have traditionally been locked out of leadership positions in companies. This thought process is now referred to as the glass ceiling, which still remains an issue for the progressive movements of women advancement today in 2015.

Hyde-ing In Plain Sight: The Duality of Dr. Jekyll Robert Louis Stevenson s initial notoriety came as an avatar of expansive adventure fiction, most famously through 1883 s Treasure Island. Just three years later, however, he would cement his status as one of the 19th century s most popular and versatile writers by releasing the horror suspense novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It s a testament to Stevenson s concept of the duality of man-- the pious intellectual and the wanton savage can coexist in the same body--that the book and its characters are still almost universally recognized in the 21st century. As a result, in Stevenson s Jekyll and Mr. Hyde we get an exemplar of 19th century horror-suspense literature, that not only proved popular and influential in its day, but continues to stand spine-to-spine with Bram Stoker s Dracula, and Mary Shelley s Frankenstein as enduring genre classics. By centering his tale in the seething cultural hotpot of Soho in the 1800 s Stevenson was able to seize on the popular fears of well-to-do English readers all too aware of the dichotomy of violence and squalor in the district. In fact, the novel stands as a playful repudiation of polite Victorian society by acknowledging the stench and grime just below the facade. With its complex labyrinth of dark alleyways and teeming, muddy streets, Soho presents the perfect milieu of urban terror for Stevenson s novel.

Question: Is change management best implemented with the involvement of staff? Answer: Introduction Change management process is considered to be most important for the evaluation of the growth of any organization. Employees are the one who contributes their best efforts in bringing out the desired positive results for the organization. The trends are changing throughout the world and thus, the change management process has become more crucial for the execution of the business process in a more suitable way. This essay will help in understanding the role of the staff or the employees of any organization in the change management process (Fabozzi and Markowitz, 2011). Cooperation, as well as the collaboration in the desired working styles of the staff, is very important in order to make the change management process, an effective process. In order to manage the process within an organization, awareness and knowledge are two of the most important elements that provide complete information regarding the execution of the business processes (Heagney, 2012). The employees needs to have pr oper knowledge related to the change management process as this will help to execute the business process of the concerned organization in a more systematic way. Main context There is no surprise in the fact that the employees are the most important part of any organization. Trends throughout the market segments have increased the competition level for the different organization to a great extent (Hung and Tu, 2011). The fact arises whether the staffs are responsible for the execution process of the organization or not. The most important are to understand the actual definition of the change management process. It is the desired process which helps in achieving the goals of the business with the use of effective strategies. Skills of the staff members of the organization are considered to be the most crucial as it helps to identify the desired requirements of the business process. According to (Jacobs, 2009) the changing trends have changed the demands of the customers; therefore, there is a crucial need to enhance the growth of the organization with the help of the staff of the concerned firm. The leaders play the most important in taking the organizatio n towards the right direction and helps in implementing the effective strategies for the change management process. The involvement of the staff members helps in bringing out different ideas related to the implementation of the change management process. It is argued that the involvement of the sometimes affects the growth of the organization negatively and sometimes it brings out the positive results for the organization (Markel, 2012). It is to be noted carefully that the different organizations do not changes but the people within the organization changes their view or they are themselves changed with the help of the change management process. The creative ideas of the employees or the staff help in bringing out the positive results for the concerned organization. Kotters eight step change model helps in bringing the desired ideas related to the implementation of the concerned change management process. Planning and the implementation of the effective strategies within the organization are important and this can be done with the involvement of the respective staff of the organization. In the change management process, firstly, the strategy is defined and then the management team is prepared for adapting the change to the organization. This signifies that the staffs of the organization play the most significant role in bringing out the desired change to the organization. In developing the plans the staff of the org anization put forward their own opinion regarding the change management process and after formulation of the plans, the action is taken and implemented this evacuates the desired fact that change management process requires the involvement of the staff. As per the model proposed by Kotter, the change management process compromises of eight of the important steps which include creating urgency between the employees in order to develop a motivation between the employees to bring out the desired change. Next is the formation of the powerful coalition in which the people needs to be convinced that a particular change is very important in order to enhance the growth of the organization. The staffs need to take the active part in order to bring out the positive results for the concerned organization. The next is the creating the desired vision for the change (Vakoch, 2011). This vision needs to be communicative with the employees or the staff in order to maintain efficiency and effectiveness of the concerned organization. It is argued that removing of the obstacles becomes very important and this is done by hiring the successful leaders within the organization. As per the model, the sixth step comprises of creating the short-term wins, wh ich will be helpful for the employees of the organization to achieve the desired goals of the business. According to (Reddy, 2013), the employees needs proper means of training regarding the business process of the organization as it will provide them the desired regarding the implementation of the change management process within the organization. Building the change is important; therefore, the employees should help in the development of the change within the workplace (Organization Development, 2009). It is argued that who takes the responsibility for anchoring the change, the employees and staff need to take responsibility for the change management process within the organization. Each of the staff within the organization should understand the importance of the change management process as it helps to improve the overall performance of the organization. Communication has been considered to be most important for the development of the effective change management process. According to (Richeri, Zhang and Jiang, 2013), there are three of the most important and effective components of the communication process. These are, the subject matter which is communicated, the audience to which it is communicated and the time of communicating. Effective means of the communication system between the employees or the staff helps in understanding the situation in a better way and it will also help in implementing the change within the concerned organization (Seethaler, 2009).

Inner Conflict Essay I have written this piece in order to demonstrate that Inner conflict is often underestimated and the wars that are within some individuals can be much worse than physical or external conflict between people. We Interact with people on a daily basis that may seem in good shape on the outside but are dealing with an Immense hostility within them. This concept Is portrayed In The Quiet American where Fowler Is deliberating privately whether or not to give the go ahead for Pyle essentially to be assassinated. The conflict between Fowler and Pyle seems contained but the contemplation Inside Fowlers head Is far more serious. The book My sisters keeper by Jodie Piccolo was another motive for this piece as It highlights the discord between a family whiffs second daughter refuses to continue donating parts of her body In order to save the eldest daughter whom Is dying of cancer. The emotional and psychological conflict experienced by everyone in the book highlights that behind a strong demeanor there are often immense interpersonal battles being fought. Hoping to bring to readers attention that everyone is dealing with some sort of dissension that we probably dont know about and thus should always consider how our actions could cause others to feel and react; realizing that one hurtful deed could be the tip of the iceberg for some; leading to things far greater than we couldve imagined.

My head hurts and I can feel the rings under my eyes grow darker as the hours of the night tick away. I like this time of evening, not having to smile and pretend that everything is okay, meaningless conversation with people who pretend to be interested in what you have to say. The cool air that runs underneath the window brushes against my skin and the wounds along my arms and legs sting a little, this familiar feeling has a comforting edge to it. This is one thing I can actually control, I think to myself. I know what Im doing Is wrong, mother made me read that book about the girl who drinks herself Into a momma every night in order to forget about her abusive father, arent you glad we are a normal family she used to say when discussing the book with me; If only you knew I thought to myself. I hear Alice rolling around In her bed, she always seems so fulfilled with things, helping mum around the house, chatting to her friends, singing In the shower, how does she do It? Always has the boys at school looking at her, not a negative bone In her body. Maybe thats how It works though, all the good genes modeled Into one child and a polar opposite created In the second. Perhaps If I were a little more Like Alice; he wouldnt see the need to try and get rid of me. So I never could tell where you Put your foot, your root, I never could talk to you. The tongue stuck in my Jaw. Staring at the family photo hung above the fireplace, these words of Sylvia Plate reminisce through my thoughts. Is this a common thing? Fathers finding the need to batter their daughters in order to live a balanced life, I dont blame him though, even I find the practice of harming myself to be an essential, its Just the way it is. As long s Alice and Mum are kept from it, Id rather it be me than one of them, for this reason the nights he rages his anger and frustration upon me I seek comfort in the fact that theyre being spared of it. His drunken breath leaves a sense of discomposure in the air, one I wish I could simply blow away or lighten with some incense; his facial discontent when looking into my eyes is something I will always remember. Those are they eyes that follow me around, always watching, Judging my every move. Suppressing thoughts of better days I try to remind myself that this is who I am, Hess qualities are what define me, Im Just a nobody that needs to get through this mundane life. Could it be better though? Seeing the girls in magazines and in movies, life looks like it could be different. My eyes are heavy and I start to think about all the unfinished deadlines creeping upon me, it all seems too much. Sometimes I wonder if anyone would even miss me if I were to Just disappear, in fact I think some might even find pleasure in not having me here anymore. The only reason dad would miss me is because he wouldnt have a punching bag to carry out his weekly frustrations, Alice probably wouldnt even notice and Mom, well sometimes I think she cares slightly but even so she might be relieved that there is one less person to worry about. I see it as being a favor to them, if I were to silently depart, even more so a favor to myself, my pitiful body shouldnt have to endure this any longer. It would be so easy I think, being able to finally be at rest. No longer having to deal with the voices inside my head, the battles within my conscience, if that were at rest, it would be bliss. The torment of the lashes and physical struggles of the world would vanish and I could be untied from all this at last. I can almost feel a smile draw itself across my face as the thought of serenity settles in this imaginary world I sometimes manage to create. Just like that I am back to reality, hearing Alice get up to go to the bathroom brings me back to the present. How foolish of me to think that I could escape this for more than a minute, these inner representatives wont let me go, or is it me that is afraid of detaching myself from them?
