Introduction The present paper deals with metaphors in political speeches. As public speakers should be men of character and know their subject, the focus of the work is on the analysis of metaphors used in speeches of the present American President George Walker Bush. Throughout history the art of public speaking has been a vital means of communication. Leader Pericles said nearly 2500 years ago: "One who forms a judgement on any point but cannot explain" it clearly "might as well never have thought at all on the subject." The forenamed leader does not only know how to explain his point of view clearly but also form the public opinion and influence the minds and stereotypes of common people so that they start considering them their own. The aim of this paper is to analyze how Bush's speeches have further shaped the general public's view and its life-style concepts and how metaphors make political speeches appealing, interesting, and memorable; how metaphors used political speeches direct our vision, thinking, and action. While they give new insight into an understanding of some things, they can blind people to other aspects of the situation. The whole paper is supposed to introduce a thorough picture of political metaphors, taking into consideration speakers' background, his nationality and the history of the country. It consists of three chapters, the first two of
Literature Essay on Hamlet's Revenge through Branagh and the BBC Tormented by the implications of righting his father's murder, Hamlet, the hero of William Shakespeare's 'The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark' has been presented on film, stage and television in many different ways.As a man of action, in the 1990 film by Franco Zeffirelli, as a member of staff for a corporation called 'Denmark', in the 2000 film of Michael Almereyda and in Laurance Olivier's production in 1948 as 'a man who could not make up his mind'. In all these different styles of character, Hamlet, most renowned for the 'to be or not to be' soliloquy on life, is characterised by indecision. However, the long speeches of Hamlet and his indecision, are what make him a tragic revenge hero and why the play, in all its different adaptations fits into the category of revenge tragedy. Revenge tragedy has been around for centuries. An example of ancient Greek revenge tragedy that survives is Aeschylus' 'Oresteia'. In this play, the tragic hero, like Hamlet, must avenge his Father's death. The 1600's in England were a popular time for the revenge play. Many of them were based on Seneca's revenge plays and contained a 'pay-back' type of theme. Shakespeare may not have read any Greek tragedy but may have had access to Seneca.Revenge as a theme may be the motivation for a comic text, to right a social slight,

Why was Bletchley Park able to break the German Enigma codes? Bletchley Park was able to break German Enigma codes because of the technology that existed such as the Bombes and the Colossus, because of individuals such as Alan Turing and Rejewski, due to the German errors and the aid of the Poles. The most important reason however, was the assistance of the Poles. As Germany invaded Poland, Polish officials met up with the British and gave them all they knew about the Enigma which they had been trying to crack previously. This not only told the British as to what the Germans were using to code their communications, but also gave them a solid head start in order to go about decoding them. The Bombe machine was developed from a Polish concept (The Bomba) and then significantly enhanced by an employee at Bletchley Park (Alan Turing) was invented and became the main machine used by the British to break the German Enigma codes. Many of these machines were built and were produced throughout the war.The Poles also directly helped Bletchley Park crack "Green Code" and were also the foundation for helping the employees of Bletchley Park crack other German Enigma codes such as Green Code. You can link Poles to individuals because the Poles (Rejewski) helped certain individuals (Turing) a great deal and their help led the individuals to succeed in breaking "Green Code". Overall, the
How Does the Director Paul Greengrass Create Tension in the Film United 93? On Tuesday September 11th 2001, four planes were hijacked. Three hit their targets, one did not; this plane was United Airlines Flight 93. Flight 93 was a scheduled United States domestic passenger flight from Newark International Airport, New Jersey, to San Francisco International Airport that was hijacked by four Islamic terrorists. These terrorists were called; Ziad Jarrah, Ahmed al-Nami, Ahmed al-Haznawi and Saeed al-Ghamdi. United Airlines Flight 93 aircraft was a Boeing 757-200, and had a capacity of 182 passengers, but the September 11 flight carried only 37 passengers and seven crew members. The flight was scheduled to depart at 08.00, but there was a delay and did not depart until 08.42; due to airport congestion. By the time Flight 93 became airborne, Flight 11 had already been commandeered and Flight 175 was being hijacked. The target that was intended for Flight 93 to hit was, according to the film, The White House. At approximately 08.45, American Airline Flight 11 hit the North Tower of the World Trade Centre. Another attack, United Airline Flight 175; at 09.03; hit the South Tower of the World Trade Centre. At 09.43, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, sending a huge plume of smoke.

God is working in America today. As America becomes increasingly urban, there is a great need for urban church planting. New strategies and ideas are coming out each year as urban ministries are becoming more popular in cities around the U.S. With this move toward the city, we must be careful that urban ministry does not become a mere fad. Instead, it is important to have in mind "the desires of the poor."1 In planning for the future of urban churches Larry McSwain says, "if we want to talk about the future of mission and ministry in the city, we need to focus on the entity that is at the heart of what urban mission is about, namely, the congregation."2 In this paper, I will examine six basic principles for starting an urban church in New Brunswick, NJ.3 I have chosen New Brunswick, NJ because I am leading a team of ten graduates from Harding University to plant a church New Brunswick.4 After describing each principle I will site an example of how each will change the dynamics of a church plant in the northeast and then describe each principle in my own context.5 The first basic principle for doing an urban ministry church plant is prayer. Every church plant and church planter should keep in mind that God is the one who builds his church. Any project is doomed to failure unless God is in it. All of our church planting efforts must be based solidly on a commitment
BEM3002 Assignment 2003-4 Does I.T help or hinder us in achieving work life balance? Student Number: 510006084 Candidate Number: 020332 Does I.T help or hinder us in achieving work-life balance? A Literature Review Work life balance has always been a concern of those interested in the quality of working life and its relation to a broader quality of life. Yet recently it has come to the fore in contemporary debates because excessive demands of work are perceived to present a distinctive issue that needs to be addressed. Individuals and organisations are beginning to realise that achieving a suitable work-life balance is a further-reaching issue than many first thought. Advances in information technology provide new opportunities. For technology to assist in achieving work-life balance it is crucial that the existing social structures in which they are introduced are considered. This literature review intends on looking at and analysing various documents predominantly found on the World Wide Web. Books tend to go out of date as soon as they are published due to constant developments of technology. It will interpret what has been written and gain an understanding into what technology has done to the work-life balance - helped or hindered. Categorising divisions of works under review will allow the synthesis of information and provide a valid understanding of the
Act 3 scene 3 is a pivotal scene in the play Othello. How does it build on previous events and foreshadow events still to come?
Act 3 scene 3 is a pivotal scene in the play Othello. How does it build on previous events and foreshadow events still to come? I have been studying the play Othello, written by William Shakespeare. As part of my coursework, I intend to analyze Act 3 scene 3 of the play as a pivotal scene. This lengthy scene is the most significant throughout the play, as it builds on previous events, and foreshadows events still to come. The leading characters within this spectacular and well written play are Othello: who is also known as "the Moor", a black African prince living in a European, colour-prejudiced society, who is lead by Iago into thinking that his wife is unfaithful to him. Desdemona: Othello's white Venetian devoted wife, however due to a cunning Iago, is suspected of infidelity and killed by her husband. Iago: Othello's ensign (standard bearer), who deviously plants suspicion in Othello's mind against his faithful wife. Cassio: Othello's lieutenant, who is also manipulated by Iago, who wished for the position of "the Moor's" lieutenant. Emilia: Desdemona's maid and Iago's wife, who is loyal to both her mistress and husband, however she is also killed due to her loyalty to her husband. Roderigo: A Venetian, who is also in love with Desdemona, but is systematically cheated by Iago, and Brabantio: Desdemona's father, who is outraged when he hears of his daughter's

Critically explore the relevance and application of the concept of 'Wellbeing' -in your setting with reference to specific examples and a selection of appropriate literature. "We often measure wellbeing as happiness or satisfaction with life. The search for happiness is often confused with the pursuit of pleasure, but wellbeing is about more than living 'the good life'; it is about having meaning in life, about fulfilling our potential and feeling that our lives are worthwhile." Eckersley, R. 2005. Well & Good: Morality, Meaning and Happiness, 2nd edition There are many constituent elements to a person's wellbeing; it is an intricate combination of a person's emotional, social, physical and mental health factors. This includes relationships, money, goals and opportunities. Wellbeing is linked to how a person feels about themselves and their life. It is believed that the factors that influence wellbeing are interrelated. A job provides not just money but purpose and goals, an education provides a means to better finances and a sense of achievement, relationships can contribute to a sense of belonging. Some factors also make up for the lack of others, a good marriage can counterbalance a lack of friendships, while religious beliefs may comfort a person and assist them in coming to terms with physical illness and their emotional wellbeing. The concept of 'Wellbeing' has
Othello Coursework "Discuss the dramatic irony in act 1 scene 3" Shakespeare's tragedy Othello is initially first set in Venice and then moves to Cyprus due to the possible invasion of the Ottoman Empire. The play explores the universal feeling that both men and women experience in a relationship. Othello, a black moor and former slave, secretly marries Desdemona, an elegant young lady and daughter of a Venetian Senator named Brabantio. At the time the play was written many people would think that the marriage is bad, as does Brabantio, calling it an "unnatural marriage". Iago is the villain of the play and he claims he will pour poison in Othello's ear and does this by corrupting his mind and using trickery to persuade him that Desdemona is unfaithful. Iago finally convinces Othello that his wife is unfaithful by planting Desdemona's handkerchief on Cassio, a young handsome soldier. Iago fools Roderigo, a rich and idiotic aristocrat, that he can win over Desdemona. Roderigo is convinced and pays Iago to try to win over Desdemona to marry Roderigo; despite this Iago does nothing to win over Desdemona throughout the whole play. Iago is constantly plotting to ruin Othello; they then team up to kill Desdemona and Cassio. Iago injures Cassio and cruelly stabs Roderigo, leading to his death. Othello strangles Desdemona at the end of the play and Emilia reveals Iago's cunning
