...Dreams can be both fascinating and baffling, which is why they have garnered attention from philosophers, artists, writers and poets for thousands of years. Only fairly recently in history have researchers began to scientifically study the dreaming process. While people still disagree about the exact purpose of dreams and the possible interpretations of dream content, this area remains a topic of interest for both psychologists, researchers, students and anyone who wonders about the reasons behind their dreams. Dream Meanings and Interpretation: Do you often find yourself exactly why you dreamed what you did, especially after having particularly strange dreams? Despite the research and interest in dreaming, no one yet fully understands how to interpret dream meanings. Sigmund Freud’s theory of dreams contributed a great deal to the general interest in dream interpretation. Books and dream dictionaries have helped ensure that the topic remains popular today. Dreams can be mysterious, but understanding the meaning of our dreams can be downright baffling. The content of our dreams can shift suddenly, feature bizarre elements or frighten us with terrifying imagery. The fact that dreams can be so rich and compelling is what causes many to believe that there must be some meaning to our dreams. Theories about Dreams: While many theories exist to explain why we dream, no one yet fully understands their purpose, let alone how to interpret the meaning of dreams. In fact, some......

Court of Star Chamber

...Court of Star Chamber – A royal law court that could be used by the King’s subject to get justice. An Ancient high court of England, controlled by the monarch, which was abolished in 1641 by Parliament for abuses of power. Wolsey was the head of the Star Chamber Origin of Star Chamber * The court took its name from the "Star Chamber" or "Starred Chamber" which was built during the reign of King Edward II specifically for the meetings of the King's Council. * The room at the royal palace of Westminster, where the court would sit had stars painted on the ceiling, hence the name "Star Chamber." * The ceiling of the chamber in which the court convened was supposedly painted with a representation of the night sky, including stars, so that the accused could gaze upon the decorated ceiling and contemplate his place in the universe. Purpose of the Star Chamber: * To oversee the operations of lower courts and to hear cases by direct appeal. * The court as structured under Henry VII had a mandate to hear petitions of redress. * Initially the court only heard cases on appeal, Thomas Wolsey and, later, Thomas Cranmer encouraged suitors to appeal to it straight away, and not wait until the case had been heard in the common-law courts. Types of Cases Dealt with in the Star Chamber: * Involved with property rights, trade, government administration and public corruption * Tudors were also concerned with matters of public order * Wolsey used the......

Round in the Chamber or Not

...Running head: LETHAL WEAPON Round in the chamber or not James Hardy SECR 5010 Lethal Weapon Today’s question facing the United States Armed Forces is, “Should Military Police (MP) carry a weapon that has a round in the chamber, with a full magazine, while performing law enforcement duties on installations?” I will analyze this question by giving facts to support my legal and ethical arguments, then I will take a opposing opinion that is supported with legal and ethical arguments, and final I will close by reassessing my initial response and indicate whether I have changed my opinion or not. I Support rounds in the chamber I believe that MP should be authorized to carry a loaded weapon. We are authorized to carry a weapon with loaded magazines and the logic of a reasonable person should say that the rationale we are carrying the weapon is to be able to use it if all other means of nonlethal tactics fail (like verbal judo). But, without the round in the chamber, doesn’t my weapon (firearm) becomes synonymous to being nonlethal? And if a MP draws his weapon, isn’t it because he is trying to ward off deadly force to defend himself or the public against those rare situations, such as threats of death or serious bodily injury? So why are we as leaders, standing for MP to carry a lethal weapon that does not have a round in the chamber? The time it takes to load a round in the chamber of a empty weapon may cost that MP or innocent bystander their life. I feel that......

The Masque of Red Death

...The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe 1. Plot. The story takes place at the castellated abbey of the "happy and dauntless and sagacious" Prince Prospero. Prospero and one thousand other nobles have taken refuge in this walled abbey to escape the Red Death, a terrible plague with gruesome symptoms that has swept over the land. Victims are overcome by convulsions and sweat blood. The plague is said to kill within half an hour. Prospero and his court are indifferent to the sufferings of the population at large. They intend to await the end of the plague in luxury and safety behind the walls of their secure refuge, having welded the doors shut. One night, Prospero holds a masquerade ball to entertain his guests in seven colored rooms of the abbey. Each of the first six rooms is decorated and illuminated in a specific color: blue, purple, green, orange, white, and violet. The last room is decorated in black and is illuminated by a scarlet light, "a deep blood color". Because of this chilling pairing of colors, very few guests are brave enough to venture into the seventh room. The same room is the location of a large ebony clock that ominously clangs at each hour, upon which everyone stops talking or dancing and the orchestra stops playing. Once the chiming stops, everyone immediately resumes the masquerade. At the chiming of midnight, the revelers and Prospero notice a figure in a dark, blood-splattered robe resembling a funeral shroud. The figure's face......

...Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.[1] The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, though they have been a topic of scientific speculation, as well as a subject of philosophical and religious interest, throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is called oneirology.[2] Dreams mainly occur in the rapid-eye movement (REM) stage of sleep—when brain activity is high and resembles that of being awake. REM sleep is revealed by continuous movements of the eyes during sleep. At times, dreams may occur during other stages of sleep. However, these dreams tend to be much less vivid or memorable.[3] The length of a dream can vary; they may last for a few seconds, or approximately 20–30 minutes.[3] People are more likely to remember the dream if they are awakened during the REM phase. The average person has three to five dreams per night, but some may have up to seven dreams in one night.[4] The dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full eight-hour night sleep, most dreams occur in the typical two hours of REM.[5] In modern times, dreams have been seen as a connection to the unconscious mind. They range from normal and ordinary to overly surreal and bizarre. Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. The events in dreams are generally outside the control of the...

Se podría argumentar, que se había colocado en esa posición al no participar más en el proceso desde el principio. Sin embargo, la política desempeñó un papel importante en este escenario, ya que Lassiter y Kovecki necesitaban trabajar estrechamente durante este proceso y que no fue posible debido a la animosidad que se había acumulado entre ellos, y entre Kovecki y la organización debido a que habían puesto a otra persona claramente más calificada para realizar el trabajo. Como Kovecki se apartó de su posición y de la CSMM, los sistemas de información de la organización comenzaron a desmoronarse. 4.

...Dreams are very different from waking life, but it is extremely difficult clearly to define in what the difference consists. When we are dreaming, we are nearly always convinced that we are awake, and in some cases real experiences have been mistaken for dreams. The latter mistake forms the subject of a celebrated Spanish play called Life a Dream, and of an amusing story in the Arabian Nights, in which a poor man is for a jest treated as a mighty monarch, and it is contrived that he should afterwards think that all the honourable treatment he had actually received was merely a vivid dream. Sometimes even after waking, we may be doubtful whether our dream was a reality or not, especially if we happen to fall asleep in our chair and do not remember the circumstance of having fallen to sleep. Of course this doubt can only arise when there has been nothing in our dream that seems impossible to our wakened mind. It is, however, only in rare cases that a dream exactly copies the experience of our waking hours. As a rule, in our sleep all kinds of events seem to happen which in our waking hours we should know to be impossible. In our dreams we see and converse with friends who are at the other side of the world or have been long dead. We may even meet historical or fictitious characters that we have read about in books. We often lose our identity and dreams that we are someone else, and in the course of a single dream may be in turn several different persons. Space and time to the......

Dream of Red Chamber

...Journal on Chapter 73-80 Through the last nine chapters, we can clearly see Bao-yu’s rebellious attitude towards the feudal Chinese system. From the previous chapters, we know that Bao-yu is very talented at poetry things, however, he stands aloof from worldly success. He doesn’t want to like his father. All he wants to do is to stay out of the officialdom. As Cao writes in chapter 73, “He had always detested this style of writing in any case. The Sage himself didn’t write that way, he argued, so how could one hope to expound the inner meaning of his teachings through such a medium” (Cao, 437). From this excerpt, we know that Bao-yu really despises the traditional test system. He thinks all the tests are mediocre. They are not comparable to those Sages’ works. Also, as Cao writes, “Before he left, Jia Zheng had selected a hundred of these essays for him to read; but Bao-yu had only glanced at them occasionally, reading a paragraph here and a paragraph there as some particularly felicitous expression or the extravagance. He had never settled down to the serious analytical examination of even a single essay” (Cao, 147). In ancient China, the writing test for official selection is really vital, but Bao-yu seems to be reluctant on it. Bao-yu wants to be whom he is instead of imitate other people. Moving onto chapter 74, lots of things take place in this chapter. Wang Shan-bao and his wife are not happy with Skybright. So they decide to set up a trap in order to kick......

The Masque of the Red Death

...The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe The "Red Death" had long devastated the country. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal--the redness and the horror of blood. There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores, with dissolution. The scarlet stains upon the body and especially upon the face of the victim, were the pest ban which shut him out from the aid and from the sympathy of his fellow-men. And the whole seizure, progress and termination of the disease, were the incidents of half an hour. But the Prince Prospero was happy and dauntless and sagacious. When his dominions were half depopulated, he summoned to his presence a thousand hale and light-hearted friends from among the knights and dames of his court, and with these retired to the deep seclusion of one of his castellated abbeys. This was an extensive and magnificent structure, the creation of the prince's own eccentric yet august taste. A strong and lofty wall girdled it in. This wall had gates of iron. The courtiers, having entered, brought furnaces and massy hammers and welded the bolts. They resolved to leave means neither of ingress nor egress to the sudden impulses of despair or of frenzy from within. The abbey was amply provisioned. With such precautions the courtiers might bid defiance to contagion. The external world could take care of itself. In the meantime it......

The Bloody Chamber

...Empowering is when someone shows traits of being stronger and more confident because they are able to take control over their life and fight for what they want. Capability is when someone obtains the ability to do something for themselves. Carter’s The Bloody Chamber presents some female characters, such as the mother, to have characteristics of positivity and empowerment; whilst other characters such as the young girl have been portrayed as naïve and vulnerable. The novel centres on a seventeen year old girl who is exploring sexual experiences for the first time with her new older husband who is the “richest man in France”, which soon leads to her changing for the worst. The statement that “Carter shows a positive and empowering image of female capability in her stores” could be argued as being correct. This is because at the climax of the novel, the young girl’s mother is identified as a hero because she killed the Marquis in order to save her daughter, who was moments away from being beheaded by him. “Now, without a moment’s hesitation, she raised my father’s gun, took aim and put a single, irreproachable bullet through my husband’s head”. This illustrates how up until this point, the Marquis’ plan was going how he wanted it to but the mother interrupts this with her independence and capability. Traditionally, women are seen as weak and unable to fight for themselves, however Carter reverses the character roles and a theme of female empowerment became noticeable. In......

...still has problems with her parent thanks to the car accident her brother was in. Kathy, she has short black hair with a belly button ring, which surprises her, but not in a good way. The only thing that every time set has in common is this guy named Luke, who’s following her during this realities, that feel like dreams to both of them. Her movement within dimensions started with a tragic event of her brother’s death during a car crash. She kept shifting through every set, she was confused because every time she woke up, Kathleen wasn’t sure who she was, or which version of herself she woke up into. Dreams are real,we have times of deja vu’s when we walk or talk to someone during our daily life, we know that we have seen certain things somewhere but we don’t recall where, maybe we saw that in another dimension but don’t fully understand because we believe it’s all a dream. In a personal experience, there was this time in which i was walking in the beach, i picked up a shell but it seemed so familiar as if i had previously picked it up. It’s weird having those kinds of experiences because it confused our brain and deceives us to believe it was a dream. Dreams can be real experiences, let’s use the space vs earth analogy. On earth we can all agree that if you try to jump from a bridge or a mountain, with the intentions of flying like a bird with no flying apparatus, you wouldn't really like to know what’s waiting for you at the bottom. We can also agree that on earth it...

The Impact of Dream of the Res Chamber

...believed that this novel was not only talking about salaciousness, it was also insulting the nobles’ life. However, the government’s decisions cannot change the reputation of the novel among the readers. In the late Qing dynasty, there were already studiers of the novel who were discovering the allusions of the novel, the real end of the story and the true identity of the author. Till today, there are more than five different categories of the studiers who held different views and opinions of this novel. After three hundred years, the secret of Dream of the Red Chamber has yet to be found. The government could not ban its fame and the fire of war could not burn its reputation (Encyclopedia). How can a novel be so well know and so undestroable? Not only this novel has its unique way of writing, it also contains new idea and implied history. Despite its disapproval and banish of the government, the impact of Cao Xueqin’s novel Dream of the Red Chamber has impacted literature, sociology and historical of the old Chinese society....
