The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue. – Antisthenes We as a civilization have grown and advanced in technology, and with the knowledge that we have acquired through countless experiments. We learned more as we experimented through the centuries, mistakes are bound to be made along the way and some theories and “facts” of the world were ultimately found to be untrue. Scientist had to unlearn what they thought to be true and restart from the beginning. In the past people had to unlearn their old traditions of false “facts”. Like the belief of the earth being flat instead of round. This was eventually proven wrong, through observations, experiments, and finally adoption of the earth being round, and the “fact” that the world was flat was thrown away.
There are plenty of other examples as well; Pluto not being a planet, the earth being the center of the universe, humans not being able to fly. These were all thought to be “facts” of our universe. Yet through experiments and through trials we eventually found ways to prove these “facts wrong. Either by showing proof, inventing new technology that allowed facts to be changed or through newly made theories.
This quote has even more of an emphasis in today’s day and age as our knowledge is advancing at a greater rate than ever before. Hundreds of theories are being made every single day, some are being found to be true others to be untrue. Ultimately though we will not really be able to know if the theories are true or aren’t until technology and our knowledge have advanced to the state were we can truly test some of these theories. This very well might change in the future. In final, being able to unlearn is required to move forward, not everything we learn in our life is bound to be true in a hundred years let alone ten years. We must be able to adapt to the endless…...

...T E C H N I C A L TECHNICAL The Greeks are coming STEVE JAY RELEVANT TO PAPER 3.7 The new Paper 3.7 Syllabus includes far more detail on options than the old Paper 14. This article looks at the areas involved in the ‘scope and benefits of financial engineering’ section of the syllabus. The reference to Greeks will become clear as we proceed. WHAT IS AN OPTION? The definition in finance is quite similar to that in every day language, i.e. an option is the right but not the obligation to perform a certain action. More specifically in finance it means that if we buy a call option we have the right but not the obligation to buy: • a fixed amount; • at a fixed time; • at a fixed price; • of the underlying instrument. On the other hand if we buy a put option we have the right but not the obligation to sell: • a fixed amount; • at a fixed time; • at a fixed price; • of the underlying instrument. TABLE 1: OPTION TERMINOLOGY Call option Put option Exercise price/Strike price In the money Out of the money American Option European Option Premium Traded Option Over the counter option Let us commence with a summary of the terminology surrounding options. This is given in Table 1 and many of the terms should be familiar from the foreign exchange and interest rate exposure sections of the syllabus. USES OF OPTIONS Options have two major uses on financial markets, speculation and hedging. Figure 1 gives an example of how speculators can use options to gamble on share price......

...Abstract This paper will be using sculptural and ceramic illustrations provided by Soltes, explain the evolution from Geometric Greek art into Classical Greek art, culminating with the construction and decoration of the Parthenon (The Temple of Athena). It will discuss what social, cultural/historic events accompanied and promoted this evolution. Greek art and sculpture has had a profound effect throughout the ages. Many of the styles have been reproduced and copied by some of what the modern day audiences would class as some of the finest artists to have ever lived. The Greeks used many different types of materials in their sculptures including stone, marble and limestone as these were abundant in Greece. Other materials such as clay were also used but due to their brittle nature very few have survived. Greek sculptures are very important as the vast majority of them tell us a story about Gods, Heroes, Events, Mythical Creatures and Greek culture in general. Many of the statues that have survived are actually of Roman origin. Like many people today the Romans had a deep respect for Greek sculptures and many were copied. If the Romans had not made these copies, many of the Greek Legends and stories that we know today would have been lost to antiquity. Geometric Art was a dramatic transformation that led to the establishment of primary Greek institutions such as the Greek city and the Greek alphabet. Although primarily visual, transformation is a......

This Paper Is About Greek Mythology and Its Connection with Astronomy

...Greek Mythology in Astronomy The creatures and deities in Greek mythology are said to have connection with the astronomy and the star constellations. In this fragment of Hesiod's poem “Nymphs like the Graces, Phaesyle and Coronis and rich-crowned Cleeia and lovely Phaeo and long-robed Eudora, whom the tribes of men upon the earth call Hyades.” (Hesiod, Homeric Hymns, Epic Cycle, Homerica.  1922) titled Astronomy, he mentioned and catalogued many of the constellations based on creatures and gods in greek mythology. Mythological aspect of the astronomy are mostly covered on the northern hemisphere, which includes the 12 zodiac constellations and some other constellations. The zodiac constellations formed an imaginary circle which the sun, moon, and seven of the nine planets orbited in the space, for example the Taurus which symbolizes the bull which describe zeus, and the form he took when he carried off the phoenician maiden, Europa. The other constellations are the constellations located out of the imaginary circle or the "zodiac circle". One example of the constellations are the Canis Major or "Great Dog" which describe several dogs that appeared in many classical myths. One of the story about it is from the book written by Hyginus titled Poetica Astronomica: "He is said to have been given by Jove as a guardian for Europa, and later to have come to Minos. When Minos was ill, Procris, wife of Cephalus, is said to have cured him, and received the dog as a......

The Greeks

...Hail them who fought for glory and honour by the use of their bravery and intelligence that brought them to excellence. The movie Odyssey showed many Greek qualities perfectly. It also manifested and gave more colors and meanings to their mythology. The bravery of Odysseus mirrored how the Greeks stood for their own civilization. His intelligence manifested the Greek’s intelligence – their culture, their artworks and how they worked for their society’s growth were the products of this. Same as Odysseus, the Greeks loved their own society that they’re ready to sacrifice even their own lives. They had their very strong faith to their gods as their foundation in living. Greek’s unity leads them to excellence that no one could ever surpass. Odyssey tried to prove to their gods that he could achieve victory and honour without their help but he got it wrong. He then realized that without Poseidon, he can’t cross island from island; without Athena, he can never have his wisdom to conquer challenges; without Ionnus, he can’t have air to breath and so sail across oceans; wholly, without their gods, his life would never exist – the Greeks had this belief in their lives. They also can’t have their very well-known civilization without gods. Greeks had their unsurpassable love for their society as well as Odyssey. They had their lives that they’ve wanted and worked hard for. They accomplished many incomparable things and they became supreme in every artwork that had ever......

...1. Quotations (how he engages his young audience + rhetorical devices and message) – do not write the paragraphs – just decide what point you want to make (with that quotation) He gets his audience involved by using the word sexy: ‘’ let me further point out how ubiquitously the word ‘sexy’ is used to describe late-model gadgets’’ he makes this whole thing easier for us to understand, by using words we use and say. Another quote that appeals to us as a young audience is: ‘’It’s all one big endless loop. We lie the mirror and the mirror likes us. To friend a person is merely to include the person in our private hall of flattering mirrors.’’ This is one of the issues the youth have, to look good and be liked. And by this quote he light up this. The message of this essay is that.. 2. Write a funnel introduction a. Write an alternative introduction, where you begin with a quotation from Franzen’s essay ‘’Alongside their built-in eagerness (of consumer technology products) to be liked is a built-in eagerness to reflect well on us. Our lives look a lot more interesting when they’re filtered through the sexy Facebook interface. We star in our own movies, we photograph ourselves incessantly, we click the mouse and a machine confirms our sense of sense of mastery.’’ Here he addresses his young self-centred audience. He shows us how the new technology has its effect on them. How it makes them more and more selfish and anti-social. Anti-social in a way, that they......

...INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY GREEK PHILOSOPHERS SOCRATES Socrates, perhaps the most famous of all philosophers, lived his entire life in Athens. Unlike Thales and other early thinkers, Socrates was more concerned with the health of the soul, than the nature of reality. Socrates spent his days in the streets of Athens, questioning people about their values. He termed himself a "gadfly" (horsefly) who ceasely irritated his fellow citizens into investigating their beliefs. Making many powerful enemies in the course of his life, Socrates was sentenced to death by the Athenian Assembly in 399 BC. One of Socrates' wonders is that he invented rigorous, ethical investigation. His conversations with his fellow Athenians, as recorded by Plato, are the first records we have of an individual, by his own careful reasoning, trying to discover the guiding principles of moral choices. METAPHYSICS Because Socrates always claimed that his only wisdom was that he knew nothing, it is difficult to determine his metaphysics, his view of reality. However, in some accounts of his conversations, like Plato’s EUTHYPHRO, we may catch glimpse of his beliefs. Socrates seemed to hold that individual entities, like holy actions, have universal characteristics, like Holiness, which can be discovered by the mind after careful investigation. This may mean that he anticipate Plato’s metaphysics that thee is higher, eternal world of truths (like Holiness) which exists independently of this......

Sun Tsu Quote Paper

...Quote Paper Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted. - Sun Tzu * Interpretation as it Pertained to Ancient Military Strategy In the Art of War, Sun Tzu begins his chapter Weak Points and Strong with this quote, and elaborates with: “Therefore the clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy’s will to be imposed on him. By holding out advantages to him, he can cause the enemy to approach of his own accord; or, by inflicting damage, he can make it impossible for the enemy to draw near. In ancient times, military movements were made by foot or horse and were excruciatingly slow, exhausting, and logistically intensive. Therefore, an army that arrived at the battlefield first had time to settle (rest), survey the surrounding area, and pick a strategic position. As the enemy army approached, the army that was established beforehand could choose to harass the enemy as they arrived or simply hold their advantageous position. When the enemy army finally arrived at the field, they would be at a disadvantage – exhausted from marching and attacking a fortified enemy. An effective general in ancient times either fought on his own terms or did not fight at all. This applies to modern day business managers as well. * Interpretation as it Relates to Modern Business Strategy First Mover Advantage ...

Greeks Paper

...In all honesty I thought most of the essay was kind of unnecessary. She was just saying a lot of big words and using a lot of complicated sentences to talk about a pretty simple thing; how men and women were portrayed in ancient Greek plays. The only thing I really took away from it is that in order to be true to the original text, you have to clearly show the intense misogyny that Pentheus had and also show how that ultimately lead to his downfall. They talked a lot about how even being perceived as having “female emotions” would be really bad for men in that time. So it’s imperative for us to have our Pentheus to really get into when he has to be a woman because that’s what ultimately causes his demise, which is kind of a cool hidden meaning. I mean up to this point we had only been discussing the fact that Pentheus wasn’t reverencing Dionysus and that's why gets ripped to shreds, but what I took away from the essay was that in fact it was because he wasn't reverencing the women and trying to have complete control over them. Other than that, I didn’t really glean anything about how to do physical stuff like scenes or costuming. Except for maybe the part about when men walk into their homes they don’t normally either come back to it after leaving or don’t leave. Maybe we could play around with that a little....

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Refletion Paper

...May 18, 2016 After Watching “My Big Greek Wedding” The movie “My Big Greek Wedding” is about the wedding between Tula, who is a Greek-American and was wearing out of fashion style and Ian who is local American white man. Even if now she is in her early thirties, her mother and father want to find a husband in hoping of sending her to Greece. At this time, she meets a perfect guy who is American. The major conflict in this movie came out after she met him. In this movie, there are a lot of cultural things that have learned in this class. For example, dominant culture, a minority group, oppression, culture difference, and collectivism. Here are the reasons why I thought of many those concepts. First of all, this movie showed the family living in America with Greek culture, showing dominant culture and a minority group. At the start of this movie, it illustrated how this girl had grown up in America. Since this Greek family immigrated to America, the dominant culture is American culture. So, Tula was illustrated adjusting in American culture was hard, avoiding other American girls. However, her family was different. Even if they are in American, they didn’t remove their own culture, especially their house. In the movie, they lived in normal Chicago town. Whereas other houses are similar with American traditional style house, her family houses are similar with the temple of the Parthenon. Indeed, they always have their meal with Greek food. In this point, even if they......
