Another reason this ad is effective is the use of players of different sports all the way from professional down to high school. As you can tell by this ad Jordan products are not only for basketball players but for two other sports Americans love as well such as baseball, and football. The third point I have for this ad is simply the use of Michael Jordan. Everyone who knows anything about sports and even people who don't know much at all about sports knows Michael Jordan. He is known as one of the best basketball players to ever play the game.
Their traditional rules, about festivals and sanctuaries, were there to be obeyed without question.” This exemplifies that the Greek gods were of high importance and held the power to determine and undermine the way Spartan society, military and religion was practised in everyday life. Their worship emphasized the attributes most relevant to the city's ideals. The Dioscuri, Castor and Polydeuces, were twin gods who play an important part in Spartan society and worship as they were known and associated as young men and their pursuits of horsemanship, athletics, warfare and protectors of guests
My personal rating for the film is an A because it depicts the Greek culture and displays how big and loud Greek families are. It was a really funny movie and it also demonstrates that cultures need to accept and have an open-mind of other cultures. I believe the intercultural message behind the film was the struggle between Gus in accepting Toula’s decision in marrying a non-Greek man. She is the first person to date someone who is not Greek, and now she is going to get married to him! The struggle would be with Gus because in the Greek culture, the father/husband is always the head of the house and makes all the decisions.
So many TV commercials or late night infomercials have a strong approach in convincing the public that their product is unlike any others and has possibilities of becoming their easy way to having the perfect body. It's becoming so common to see this among the majority of fitness ads five to ten different ones, promising extremely unrealistic results. How do these ads work so well? The numbers one reason is that they do a good job at putting credible people in the commercials such as; physicians, famous celebrities, and real-life individuals. The physicians show scans or test results explaining how this workout system differs from others and stand out on so many levels.
The Spartan King ruled supremacy over his one hundred Spartan bodyguards. In fact, being part of the Kings squad held great honor and meant that they were as what they would call a true Spartan. During a war, only one of the kings went into battle while the other stayed in Sparta. This is evidently told by Herodotus as he states that this ‘conflict between Kings Cleomenes and Demaratus is what finalized this decision in a time around 507 BC. Following on, the King would generalize and plan out military campaigns.
Having a strong leader figure and support system behind a team is another component to success because it creates respectability. Having Dr. Daniel L. Adams as the president of the Knickerbocker Club helped players and fans alike develop a deeper love for the game. Adams is known to be well preserved and “his active step and unimpaired eyesight and hearing go far to prove the value of an active interest in athletics.”5 His actions were parallel to the team’s actions, therefore creating a successful Knickerbocker
He gives a more in depth personality and one readers can relate to. Eve is in the public eye, the famous do-gooder everyone loves
Pericles continues, discussing Athenian attitude towards military security, the educational system, the city’s bravery, and its relationship with other nations. His speech can do nothing but make any citizen proud to live in Athens. There is no parallel speech about the War on Terror, but President George W. Bush’s speech from atop the rubble of the World Trade Center may have resonated with some people in a similar way to Pericles’ speech. Pericles’ funeral oration, however, has passed the test of time and remains one of the most inspiring speeches of
Beowulf's unselfishness and unfailing loyalty gave him quite a reputation and much popularity with both the Danes and Geats subjects and their kings. Reputation is what motivates thanes to be loyal to their rulers. The more courageous acts they performed for their country, the better their reputation and popularity. Therefore their rank in the social ladder would increase as well. The fact that not all thanes could be as courageous and have so many heroic achievements for their countries and rulers is why Beowulf seems so ideal and extraordinary.
Spartan Athletics Although the image of Sparta is heavily based around violence and warfare, athletics played a major leisure role in the lives of all Spartans. This included the young, old, male and females. The Spartans were the first Greeks to begin to practise athletic sports whilst being completely naked, and were the first to introduce the custom of anointing their bodies with olive oil before exercise. Spartans were so passionate about these sporting practises that a shrine was dedicated the Dioskouri (patrons of athletics) in order to assist Spartan runners whilst beginning a race. The full range of Athletic sports participated in by Spartans included stadion (running), discus, javelin, jumping and wrestling, as well as boxing in which they had invented.
