The movies itself is reliable to see how the tribunal was held, and what the trial was like, but it is not as reliable for cold hard facts. There are many strong themes in this powerful film, and it is in the themes where Abby embeds his argument. Perhaps the most important theme is excuses were used as a scapegoat. One of the excuses was that people claimed that they were “just following orders.” Everyone used this excuse, from the witnesses being questioned, to the judges on trial. During cross examination, the defendants’ judge, Hans Rolf, ask the witness Dr. Wiek questions in which his only answers is “everyone was forced to”.
Hale starts to question the courts ethics and when he hears of john Procter and Mary’s deposition, and he fully backs them up and believes that the girls are faking. The court listens to him, knowing he has a great voice of reason, speak out against the girls. It was very respectable of him to leave the court (as in his position in helping with the trials) when John is arrested. As a man of God, rev. Hale is very intelligent and probably reads a lot of books (36), esp.
The other reflections of history provided, such as how Delaware did not repeal their corporal punishment laws until 1972, were colorful and interesting but were too abundant for such a short composition. Americans are selfish content readers; they want to know: “What does that have to do with me?” Although dusting off the roots of an argument is always intriguing, the thesis would be more compelling if more facts, resources and statistics were provided on how a move toward corporal punishment would affect us now. Flogging has some hit and miss moments throughout the piece. Jacoby constructed some compelling lines in his essay. For example, pointing out “Imprisonment has become our penalty of choice…for crimes violent and nonviolent…” is a brilliant
DISCUSSION Richard Branson has been labelled something of a “rogue maverick”. Throughout his long business career he has exhibited great independence in thought and action along with exceptional calculated risk-taking in the successful building of his Virgin brand. Branson has also been tagged as a "transformational leader" in the management dictionary, with his maverick strategies and his stress on the Virgin Group as an organisation driven on informality and information, one that is bottom-heavy rather than strangled by top-level management. His portfolio of companies cut across many vertical and horizontal industries, most of which have particularly high barriers to entry either in terms of initial capital expenditure and/or heavy legal compliance with Government regulatory frameworks. Looking at Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Trains these are two examples of very successful private sector attempts at breaking into otherwise Government monopolistic businesses.
Quiet deserves a very large readership.” —CHRISTOPHER LANE, author of Shyness: How Normal Behavior Became a Sickness 4/929 “Susan Cain’s quest to understand introversion, a beautifully wrought journey from the lab bench to the motivational speaker’s hall, offers convincing evidence for valuing substance over style, steak over sizzle, and qualities that are, in America, often derided. This book is brilliant, profound, full of feeling and brimming with insights.” —SHERI FINK, M.D., author of War Hospital “Brilliant, illuminating, empowering! Quiet gives not only a voice, but a path to homecoming for so many who’ve walked through the better part of their lives thinking the way they engage with the world is something in need of fixing.” 5/929 —JONATHAN FIELDS, author of Uncertainty:
Tanya Tucker v. State of Confusion Willie B. Douglas University of Phoenix Law/415 October 30, 2011 Monika Arvelo Tanya Tucker v. State of Confusion With the numerous sources of law created to regulate individuals, businesses, and organizations within and outside the United States, companies are finding it not only costly, but risky to operate. Nevertheless, “the United States’ legal system is one of the most comprehensive, fair, and democratic system of law ever developed and enforced.” (Cheeseman, H, 2010 pg. 3) With the evolvement of businesses, technology, economics, and international trades today, businesses have an even greater moral, ethical, and social responsibility to be fair in its dealings. However, we find that some businesses are only concentrating on the bottom line and that is, to make a profit for its shareholders. The following will briefly summarize a case scenario of a Statute enacted by the State of Confusion which Tanya Tucker, an owner of a trucking company is unhappy about.
Whenever the phrase “greatest writer of all time” is uttered, Mark Twain is always in the discussion. Perhaps for his ability to allude to issues that are still relevant today; or maybe it’s because he’s so very controversial. Though his work has called for censorship, it can’t be denied that Twain has made an impact on the world, and it’s because of his radically advanced thinking and racially derogatory pieces. Nevertheless, Twain is one of the greatest writers of all time, and a lot can be learned from the tension he creates. If the reader takes Twains’ writings too literally, then clearly he would come off as somewhat offensive.
