NATURAL LAW, INTERPRETATIVISM AND REALISM: NEW LEGAL REALISM Michael Yee Introduction Miles and Sunstein's article describes the emergence of empirical studies of judicial behaviour in the last decade indicating the rise of a new movement that they call "New Legal Realism". Miles and Sunstein argues the growth and relevance of this movement by discussing the distinction of "movements" in law, furthering Llewellyn's attempts to capture the “empirical goals of legal realists” by abstraction of reported cases to make large scale quantitative studies of facts and outcome.  In this essay I will argue that whilst Miles and Sunstein conduct a compelling investigation, supported by interesting methodology, their claims often displace our focus on some plausible differences while ignoring many important similarities between these movements. Considering this, it is unclear if the differences are really significant enough to justify the label, and thus invokes an argument with an underlying hindsight bias. I will then attempt to form a more thorough argument through drawing similarities between judicial interpretations of conventional semantic meanings of statutory and constitutional texts, linking them back to an understanding of systematic differences in existing legal topography.
Introduction The aim of this thesis is to examine the experimental devices in the work of Angela Carter, one of the most inventive British authors. The importance of this author can be seen in Stephen´s Benson review essay “Angela Carter and the Literary Märchen”, where he describes the “legend of the Carter effect ..´St. Angela of the campus´”. From 1992 - 1993, there were more than forty applicants wanting to do doctorates on Carter, making her by far the most fashionable twentieth century topic and the most read contemporary author on English University campuses. Another essay, “Teaching Improprieties: The Bloody Chamber and the Irreverent Classroom,” by Bruhl and Garner, bring a different point of view –
Prof. Helen Roulston ENG 313: History of Cinema 3. Explain why one or more films have been important in the development of the cinema. Griffith Is to Film as Plato Is to Philosophy In my second week’s journal entry, I wrote out a commentary and reflection to our watching Birth of a Nation. It really struck me how much of an effect this film had on both its culture and on the history of cinema. Both factors are incredible to fathom.
José Alejandro Méndez Blanch History and Culture of Other English–Speaking Countries II Academic year 2012–2013 * * * * * History and Politics of the United States through Citizen Kane, The Front Page, and Network With its unparalleled capacity for realism, cinema seems uniquely positioned to bring history to life for a mass audience. Whether retelling stories about past events or reflecting more contemporary issues, cinema has been arguably the primary source of historical knowledge for many people from its earliest years right up to the present day. The following written paper purports to explore a given number of key historical and political issues that happened in the United States of America and overseas during the 20th century. The task will be made through three noteworthy films: Citizen Kane, The Front Page, and Network. Although every film seems to be political and/or historical, inasmuch as they are determined by the ideology which produces it, the three abovementioned fiction movies have been selected by being reliable sources of historical knowledge related to the governments, public and private affairs, culture or ideology.
Her background was interdisciplinary and included a thorough grounding in linguistics, ethnology, and the history of religions, which was unusual for an archaeologist. In 1949, she moved to the United States, where she would remain until her death four decades later. With her extensive knowledge of European languages, Marija Gimbutas was employed by Harvard University in 1950. She was assigned the task of conducting research and writing texts regarding European prehistory. Gimbutas was able to read and translate the archaeological reports from Eastern Europe, which opened the American to new ideas on archeology.
The idea of Advanced Nursing Practice (ANP) is reported to have commenced in the USA in the early parts of the 20th century (Mantzoukas, 2006) and its development has been well recorded in the literature (Ketefian, Redman, Hanucharurnkul, Masterson & Neves, 2001; Furlong & Smith, 2005). But lack of clear definitions for the concept, its scope of practice and standards has resulted in a great diversity in practice (Woods, 1999; Pearson & Peels, 2002; Daly and Carnwell, 2003). Furlong and Smith (2005) identifies that several attempts have been made to conceptualise advanced nursing practice. This has resulted in some form of agreements in the core concepts that underpin ANP such as clinical autonomy, professional and clinical leadership, research capabilities, application of theory and research to practice and graduate level education requirement (Ketefian et al., 2001; Furlong & Smith, 2005; Mantzoukas, 2006). Several models including that of Calkin (1984) and ‘from novice to expert' model by Benner (1984) were developed but none of these analysed contextual influences on advanced nursing practice.

ENRICHING GOAL-SETTING THEORY WITH TIME: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH YITZHAK FRIED LINDA HAYNES SLOWIK Wayne State University We examine the overlooked role of time in goal-setting theory and demonstrate how the integration of time into this theory adds to its dynamism and validity in the increasingly complex, constantly changing work environment. Following a brief discussion of developments in the scientific understanding of time, we discuss and illustrate how these new understandings enhance the utility and theoretical soundness of the theory and how time can be integrated into the theory’s main components: goal difficulty, goal attainability, and goal specificity.
Selecia Pugh Group 2 Presentation 3/25/2010 Gender Criticism Feminism became a dominant force in Western literary studies in the late 1970s while Namoi Schor estimated that around 1985 feminism gave way to the term “gender studies” (Schor275). 1. She chose that day because it marked the publication of Between Men, a book that articulates the insights of feminist criticism onto those of gay-male studies. 2. Today gay and lesbian criticism is so much a part of gender criticism that it be equivalent to “sexualities criticism”.
The Effects of Patriarchy in Renaissance History A. Renaissance History The term Renaissance, literally means “rebirth” and is the period in European civilization immediately following the Middle Ages, conventionally held to have been characterized by a surge of interest in classical learning and values. To the scholars and thinkers of the day, however, it was primarily a time of the revival of classical learning and wisdom after a long period of cultural decline and stagnation. (history-world.org/renaissance.htm). In the Renaissance period, women played several roles in their families depending on their age and marital status.
According to Bogdon and Biklen (2007), qualitative data take a narrative form, representing perspectives or interaction that is naturalistic or context-driven. Qualitative research has actual settings as the direct source of data and the researcher is the key instrument. He goes to the particular setting under study because he is concerned with context. Qualitative research is descriptive, the data collected take a form of words/pictures rather than numbers. The data include interview transcripts, fieldnotes, photographs, videotapes, personal documents, memos, and official records.
