The Origins of the Second World War

...- Essay - The Origins of the Second World War Text 6 by A.J.P. Taylor Professor: Luciano Amaral Assistant: Duncan Simpson Francisca Ennes 11731 Mariana Ascenso 11677 Alan John Percivable Taylor was born in March 1906 in Birkdale, England. His parents held left-wing views, which he inherited; and were pacifists, which made them send his son to Quaker schools, as a way of protesting against the First World War. Taylor was described as being an “arresting, stimulating, vital personality, violently anti-bourgeois and anti-Christian” person. He attended Oxford University and made a post-graduation in history in Vienna. After that, he became a political and diplomatic historian. In 1961 he published his most controversial book, The Origins of the Second World War, where he proposed a new and uncomfortable picture of Hitler – the Chancellor and Head of State of Germany between 1933 and 1945. Likewise, Origins seems to evidence numerous inconsistencies and contradictions in his own theories. In this essay, based on “Hitler’s Foreign Policy” chapter from the previously mentioned book, we will discuss the author’s opinion on the main character, regarding historical facts. Adolf Hitler was born in 1889 in Austria. When younger he was already considered as being a resentful, discontented and of unstable temperament child. He was deeply hostile towards his authoritarian father, and strongly attached to his mother. Later on, he went to Vienna where he acquired his first......

An Essay on the Original Intent of the Second Amendment

...The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States: “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” The Second Amendment has been the subject of controversy only for roughly the last 80 years. Even though, as some argue, the Framers themselves argued over its wording, the almost universally accepted opinion was that it guaranteed an individual right. It was in 1934 that the first attempt at universal gun control on a national level occurred. In 1934, the United States was at the height of the Great Depression (Kangas, 1997). In 1933, the 18th Amendment to the Constitution had finally been repealed, marking the end of the noble experiment known as “prohibition”. The fourteen years of prohibition had nurtured an atmosphere of speakeasies, bootlegging, gangsters, and mafia. The year following the repeal of prohibition was marred by some of the worst gangster violence in American history. John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson were on the run. Bonnie and Clyde were killed in that year (1934 in the United States, 2013). The nation had just finished its war with Al Capone’s gang (Al Capone, 2013). The people were tired of the unrestrained violence and, in an apparent classic effort to obtain safety at the expense of liberty, were willing to accept limits on the right to bear arms. Although this discussion is not about the history of gun control but about the right to bear......

Thoughts

...A thought, as defined by the oxford dictionary is “An idea or opinion produced by thinking, or occurring suddenly in the mind. It is common to hear a person say that, “I had a thought about X the other day.” Thoughts are usually short lived, discrete events. Everyone experiences thoughts and have no problem identifying them. Thought can refer to the ideas or the arrangement of ideas that result from thinking, the act of producing thoughts, or the process of producing thoughts. Thoughts are the result or product of spontaneous act of thinking. Thoughts, especially in humans, are not that independent, they can be much more complicated and it can appear to be nothing as it seems. All the information received by the mind triggers a chain of thoughts. Edward Chace Tolman, a great experimentalist and a theoretician in psychology was the first to demonstrate thought influence action. After Tolman, a psychologist Roger Shepherd showed that people can actually manipulate thoughts or mental representations. Thoughts are electro-chemical reactions taking place in the brain, but the number and the complexity of these reactions makes it hard to completely understand these reactions. Because thought underlies many human actions and interactions, understanding it’s physical and metaphysical origins, processes and ......

...to hold forever. The stars and you are the same. You are beautiful but only at a distance. And kissed me like sending a thousand lightning on my spine. I tasted salt in your mouth as if you drank the waters of the ocean; good thing you didn’t drown. My skin had blood marks on because you held me so tight that winter night. But that didn’t matter because I love you. And I mean it. -End- It’s a little bit funny how I cut fringes out of my long hair And I would feel very sad every time I look at the mirror. Like I was carry kettle bells with each of my finger I thought every girl in school was perfect and not fat And I curse myself for not being alike. I wasn’t good with words spoken or written, and I was ashamed of myself every time I stood in front to say , perhaps stutter. I look above with a beaten heart. The stars at night became my mother. My father was the moon. Or so I thought. As days went by, I became even sadder. I kept on dropping hints Of sadness and they fall like nothing. As nobody noticed....

Thought Paper #2

...Dr. Radwan Cost 1610 Thought Paper #2 “Teaching and learning are inseparable parts of a single continuum of reciprocal giving and receiving.”(Christensen Pg. 621) In this quote Christensen describes the reciprocal nature of the relationship between a teacher and a student. In his essay, he describes his theories of teaching as a successful college professor at the prestigious Harvard Business School. It is important to listen to and hear his message on teaching because we all experience at least the student end of the spectrum at some point in our life. It is important to know not only what is going on in the mind of the students as a teacher, but also what is going through the mind of your teacher every day in class. After reading his essay, discussing it, and experiencing 15 years of school I can honestly say this topic is important to understand and consider from both sides of the relationship. First, I will begin by laying out the role of the teacher in Christensen’s view. Then I will go over the students’ role Christensen’s view. Finally I will wrap up with an example to illustrating the key points of the essay and conclude with a summary of my points. “No matter how factually accurate and time-tested our data, how clear cut and disciplined our analytical methods, or how practiced and skillful our pedagogical techniques, true learning emerges only when we honor the human factor.”(Christensen Pg. 631) Christensen’s first idea about the role of the teacher...

This Is My Friend's Essay, I Just Thought It Was Too Sweet Not to Share : )

...even play something cool like the drums. No, I played the Saxophone. I thought it all mattered, until one particular girl walked into my class and my life, the very first day of eighth grade. She had blonde, super-curly hair, like Shirley Temple. It was frizzy and chaotic, yet somehow she owned it. Her glasses sat awkwardly on the tip of her nose and occasionally she pushed them back up. She wore a simple t-shirt and jeans, never anything that stood out, yet something about her screamed unique. Something itched inside me, daring me to talk to this girl, so when she took a seat next to me, I took my chance. “Hey. What is your name?” “Alexis King,” she said, offering her hand to shake. I smiled, all the while wondering, What kind of name is Nederhood. “I’m Brittany.” I still wanted to get to know her. In some ways, I wanted to be like her. She carried herself with a nonchalant stride and an air that said she really did not care what anyone thought. As the first week of school progressed, I noticed more of her personality emerge. Her sense of humor teetered between borderline inappropriate and just plain wrong. In a strange way, her crudeness was endearing. As much as I wanted not to laugh, I often found myself close to tears and breathless. Most kids our age were too afraid to say things that probably should not come out of a fourteen-year-olds’ mouth. She never seemed to give it a second thought though. That was who she was. I envied her for that. She was not......

Economic Thought

...Economic Thought In this essay I plan on discussing three schools of economic thought. The first school I will be discussing is the Keynesian school of economic thought followed by, the Monetarist and concluding with the Austrian school of economic thought. Throughout this essay I will explain and discuss the key components, philosophy and history of each of the following. I also plan on discussing how each school is accepted today in society and what the future of these schools hold. To concluded the essay, I will elaborate on which school I believe is more relevant in todays society and which economic school of thought I believe is best for our society today. The Keynesian school of economic thought, is a theory based on total spending in an economy, and the potential results on inflation and input. Keynesian believe that aggregate demand is highly influenced by several economic factors and decisions. Some of those decisions include; monetary, fiscal policies as well as changes in aggregate demand. "According to Keynesian theory, changes in aggregate demand, whether anticipated or unanticipated, have their greatest short-run effect on real output and employment, not on prices". Summarizing the previous quote, Keynesians in general believe that the short run can't infer what can or shall occur in the long run. In todays society many people would agree that prices and wages increase promptly with any sudden change in supply and demand, but that is a different case......

Philosophy Second Essay

...Question ONE (to be answered as a straight-forward philosophical essay): Silenus, the satyr, is, or perhaps pretends to be, a determinist. After all, everything about the satyr, both his nature and nurture, come directly from his creator, Hench. And certainly, at the beginning of the story, Hench accepts full responsibility for the satyr’s actions. But he eventually changes his mind. How can the satyr, all of a sudden, become morally responsible for his actions? What exactly changed in Hench’s thinking? Michael Gorr is a compatibilist. Does his position make better sense than either the determinist or the libertarian? Explain. Question TWO (to be answered as a philosophical essay but with your auto-biography as illustation): “There is little wonder that Silenus, the satyr, is a determinist because everything about him, that is, both his nature as well as his nurture, were outside his control. He had absolutely no say in the matter. But, when I think about it, this is equally true of me as well. How do I, as a human being, differ from the satyr (except for the half-goat, half-man part)? After all, I am nothing more than the causal result of my nature in combination with my nurture and therefore, just like the satyr, I too am not responsible for who I am, what I do, or even what I think. If everything about me is caused and outside my control, then I cannot really be free or morally responsible. I could not have done otherwise.” Critically assess this claim utilizing......

Thoughts and Writing

...Writing Assignment #1 ENG 1050: Thoughts and Writing The essay “Trigger-Happy Birthday” written by Kiku Adatto, is about the author’s personal experience when faced with the dilemma of letting her son participate in the activities at another child’s birthday party. The mother of the birthday child had organized a birthday party at the local paintball center. The author was alarmed when she received the “Release of Liability” form in the mail. The liability form asked for a parent signature to release the paintball company from any liability if any participant was injured, permanently disabled or even died while participating in the activities provided by the paintball company. Kiku decided to visit the paintball center before the birthday to make a determination if she was going to allow her child to participate in the birthday party or if he was going to have to stay home on the day of the birthday party. While at the paintball center, she noted that the company did give a safety orientation and the children were given safety equipment to protect them. She also noted the expensive price tags that came with the hobby and that a couple of the kids had gotten some nice welts on their bodies from the paintballs. At the end of the day, she decided that she did not want her twelve year old son participating in the paintball birthday party. I connected well with the author because I think that we all come across decisions in our lives where we need to make an educated...

...bowling. I found myself being an introvert majority of the season. The second one is Intuitive. Intuitive is a person who has an insight to understand or know something without evidence. I feel I am very intuitive when it comes to my children. For example, when they are to quiet I know they are into something to keep them busy. My oldest son when he calls, I know what he wants by the way he tries to greet me on the phone by the way he says, “Hey Dad what cha doing?” That usually means he needs a ride or money. In short I am very in tune with my children. The third one is thinking. I know for a fact I do a lot of Thinking. I try to think things through all the way to the end. If someone disagrees with my way of thinking, I sometimes find myself catching an attitude. Especially when someone asks me for my two cent and they go against what I tell them. The Last one is Judging. I try not to judge many people. The impressions that people tend to give me, sometimes give me the reason to judge them. I know half the time it is wrong to do. For example, I cannot stand to see any woman in pajama pants outside the house. I think it is very nasty for a woman, to come out of the house like that straight out of the bed. My personality type consist of these types of characteristics: skeptical, often stubborn, critical, independent, and determined. Under most circumstances my day-to-day thoughts are consistent with these traits. Self-management is an important trait......

First and Second Order Cybernetics

...First and Second Order Cybernetic Approach 1. How is reality seen by each specific approach? Describing reality is a challenge as is something that is unseen and untouchable. The first order cybernetic approach talks of the system that is entirely independent to the observer, while the second order cybernetic approach talks of systems that observe themselves. Hoffman (1985) challenges the way reality is viewed in second order cybernetic as he believes that people could never be sure as to what they think they saw is actually a real or is actually there. From the first order cybernetic approach the epistemological principle view reality a something that can be learned through the process of observation and at the same time the whoever has went through that process will not influenced by the same process. Individual can observe themselves, reality is how the individual see themselves without looking at the outside world (Becvar & Becvar, 2006). According to Becvar et al (2006) the therapist in the second order cybernetic approach has to take note that their observation can be influenced by the process and reality will be a challenge as they will have to consider the perception of their clients and their own perception. Looking at both the approaches reality is seen or view as perceptions created by the individual. 2. How is health and pathology addressed by each approach? In trying to address health from the first order cybernetic a healthy family is a family......

Second Guessing Second Life

...Second Guessing Second Life We have been deluged recently with stories about the amazing virtual world of Second Life and the brave opportunities it creates for brands. It is hard to believe, but it has been little more than a year since the first major brand, US retailer American Apparel, opened its doors for virtual business on the site. The store sold virtual American Apparel clothing designed to be worn by the avatars that users create to populate Second Life. American Apparel was soon joined by other brands. In October 2006, Starwood, the owner of hotel brands such as Westin and Sheraton, premiered its Aloft hotel brand on Second Life. Starwood saw its virtual hotel as a way of generating early customer insights about its venture long before any of the hotels opened. A month later, Pontiac, the US car-maker, launched Motorati Island. According to Mark-Hans Richer, marketing director at Pontiac, it was designed to 'empower the car community in Second Life and develop with them in a unique and meaningful manner'. From April, Second Life boasted the ultimate marketing patronage when Coke launched a 'virtual thirst pavilion', where visitors could compete to create a virtual vending machine selling not Coke, but, according to the firm's website, 'the essence of Coca-Cola: refreshment, joy, unity, experience'. It all sounds pretty amazing, until you visit Second Life. Having spent last weekend walking around its virtual universe, I have to report that the......

Shared Thoughts

...SHARED THOUGHTS………….19.05.2012. =================================== As told by Robin Sharma. Richard Carrion, the CEO of Puerto Rico's top Bank, once shared a line with me that I'll never forget : " Robin, Nothing Fails like Success." Powerful Thought. You, as well as your organization, are most vulnerable when you are most successful. Success actually breeds complacency, inefficiency and - worst of all - arrogance. When people and businesses get really successful, they often fall in love with themselves. They stop innovating, working hard, taking risks and begin to rest on their laurels. They go on the defensive, spending their energy protecting their success rather than staying true to the very things that got them to the top. Whenever I share this point with a roomful of CEOs, every single one of them nods in agreement. Please let me give you a real world example from my own life. This past weekend, I took my kids to our favorite Italian restaurant. The food is incredible there. The best bresaola outside of Italy. Heavenly Pasta. Super foamy lattes that make me want to give up my job and become a barista. But the service at this place is bad. Bad, Bad, Bad ( like it is at most places ). why? Because this place is always full. And because they are doing so well, they have taken the lines out front for granted. And guess what? It's the beginning of their end. I love taking pictures. My dad taught me to record the journey of my life with photos.......

Second Chance

...I was grateful when I graduated High School. School was a social event for me, not a learning experience. I don't know how I passed anyways considering I never went and when I did I never paid much attention. Needless to say I hated reading; actually despised it! It was such a waste of time. I decided to take a year off school to relax and then enroll in college. Little did I know that one year off was going to actually going to turn into seventeen years. A series of bad choices started a downward spiral that I needed a lot of help to get out of. I never thought that I was going to get most of my help from reading and writing. For many years, I followed the path that many generations of my family had gone down. It was in my blood and I knew it but I didn't think it would happen to me. This disease was not only destructive but it was fatal. I'm talking about addiction. It started slowly at the age of thirteen. It helped me take my mind off of my life and some very traumatic events. At first it was a here and there thing. Gradually it went to weekly using; before I knew it, it was daily. I didn't even realize that weeks, months, even years were flying by me. My whole day and night was consumed with the getting and using of drugs and alcohol. If I wasn't under the influence I acted like a bear woken up from hibernation. Noone could stand to be around me. My family Swecker 2 wouldn't even step into the same room for fear of an attack. ......
