The role of women in Ancient Rome is reflected perfectly through Calpurnia and Portia in Ancient Rome history. In Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Portia and Calpurnia, the only women roles in the play, display a woman’s role in Ancient Rome of women being inferior to their husbands and under their authority.
In Act II Scene I, Brutus leaves his bed at night to join Casca, Decius, Cinna, Metellus, Trebonius, and Cassius on a conspiracy plan. His wife, Portia becomes worried. She does not know what is going on but curiously wants to know. She is worried about her husband because she can tell something has been going on with him. However, he still refuses to tell her, even as much as she urges him to. Women were to respect their husbands and under his authority she was not obligated to force him to tell her what is going on. This is exhibited in scene 2 when Portia said, “Nor for yours either. Y’ have urgently, Brutus, stole from my bed; and yesternight at supper you suddenly arose and walked about musing and sighing, with your arm across and when I asked you what the matter was you stared upon me with ungentle looks” (II.i.237-242) This statement relates the fact of women not having control on their husband’s actions because just as Brutus left from the bed a women could not do so and also as Portia asked Brutus what was the matter he sighed, fussed, and looked at her harshly. He didn’t tell her anything, because he wasn’t obligated to do so.
Portia urges Brutus to tell her the matters in which are causing him to be down. She is worried and wants to know why he will not tell her. Brutus becomes frustrated from the curiosity of his wife as she pressures him to know the issue. He doesn’t want her to know but she really wants to know. She finally accepted his refusal, but even though he still didn’t tell her. In scene 2, Brutus still is refusing to tell Portia the issue so…...

Vocal Performances in American Stand-Up Comedy

...Ekke Kanda English 112 Vocal Performances in American Stand-Up Comedy In “Sounding Gendered: Vocal Performances”, Tom Delph-Janiurek argues that peoples voices are mediated by discourse (Giltrow 277). He explains that voices are interpreted through attribution to recognizable performances of roles and gendered and sexualized performances (Giltrow 276). According to Delph-Janiurek, voices are limited within the confines of certain societal hegemonic norms. He explains that the relationship between voices and bodies is not necessarily physiological; voices are vocal “performances”. There exists a pre-established gender duality within society, in which masculinity and the “male” voice is associated with the male body, and femininity and the “female” voice is associated with the female body. Thus, what is considered to be a “natural” voice is merely a choice made by an individual as to which of the two sides of duality they identify with more (Gamson). This choice is a representation of a gendered and sexualized identity that is influenced by discourse. Gender norms dictate that males identify with the more masculine voice, with a lower pitch and only slight increases in intonation. The stereotypical female voice, on the other hand, is more high pitched, with more variation in intonation (Bonds-Raacke). With this in consideration, Delph Janiurek’s thesis is that voices have a “geography”, and that they can be authored in a certain way within certain societal “spaces”......

Fans in the Stands

...Mylon Richard Mr. Joubert English 101G1 16 October 2012 Fans in the Stands Professional sports have become one of the most popular industries in the world today. The media spends billions of dollars on advertisements with billboards, commercial, and merchandise. Teams spend millions of dollars on professional athletes all for one reason, the fans because if the fans are happy then the owners are happy. The fans ticket sales and merchandise purchases are what keeps all the sport teams around and prevents professional athletes from losing their jobs. Fans are the most crucial part of any franchise. There are three types of fans in the sports world, average fans, fanatics, and fair-weather fans. A diehard’s favorite team is basically their second religion. The diehard fan would be the one who knows the team like the back of their hand. They are the persons that know the name, number, position, and maybe the height and weight of every play on the field for their team. They could win an argument against the world’s greatest lawyer, being that the argument is about their team. They will wear their team’s colors with great pride whether the team is winning or losing. They are so dedicated to their team to point of sitting through a hurricane, blizzard, or the blazing heat just because of their love for the team. Diehards are the one fan that bought their season ticket passes for the next season five years in advance to make sure they get seats with the best view. They make......

Stand and Deliver

...Stand and Deliver Stand and Deliver (1988) is a film about a teacher and a group of students who went above the expectations of everyone around them and all passed the AP exam. The concept of self-concept is very evident in this film. Self-concept is the “sum total of everything that encompasses the self- referential term ‘me’” (42). A person cannot isolate themselves and develop a self-concept. It is built around social communication; it has to grow from interpersonal communication. The film is based in East Los Angeles, not a place where you want to walk in the streets alone. There, all of the students live and go to school at Garfield High School. Because they live in such an under-privilege neighborhood and go to a school in that neighborhood, they aren’t seen to be as intelligent as someone who lives in Beverly Hills. There was a part of the film during a teacher meeting when Mr. Escalante brought up that he wanted to teach calculus to his students the next school year. This was when the principal laughed and sarcastically said “Boy, that’s a jump.” Because self-concept is developed through interpersonal communication, the fact that even the principal of their school doesn’t believe they could do such a feat like pass the AP exam, they haven’t thought much about their education. School was a joke to them so they focused on their own personal lives at home and with their friends. That is, until Mr. Escalante became their new math teacher. Self-concept can......

The United States continued search for stronger prosperity continues to grow. Each business wants to grow stronger and to do so they need to continue to produce more goods and service. By utilizing their various financial statements they will be able to develop an Economic Profit report which will show them how they are failing or growing. The Economic Profit Report takes information from a variety of sources in the business’ paperwork to give the owner an idea of where they stand. This report is made up of explicit revenue and expenses and implicit revenue and expenses. The explicit expenses are clear cut costs that a business pays to outsiders that reduce the bottom line profit of a company. Implicit expenses are those costs that are within the business such as hours worked. Both sets of expenses are added together and both sets of revenues are added together to give the totals for each section. Expenses are then subtracted from revenues to give the business their Economic Profit. To determine the implicit expenses of the lemonade stand for the three seasons was a matter of figuring the amount of hours that were spent working each of the 6 days for each of the seasons. This total number of hours was then multiplied by a wage for each of the seasons. This expense is necessary for any business to run as......

Taking a Stand

...Taking a Stand Barbara De Groot, RN Walden University NURS 6053, Inter-professional Organizational And Systems Leadership Barbara De Groot, RN November 14, 2014 Introduction Patient advocacy extends back to Florence Nightingale and remains relevant today. While Nightingale did not explicitly address advocacy in nursing, she did demonstrate advocacy in many ways (Selanders and Crane, 2012). Today advocacy extends beyond the individual patient to local and global populations, and nationally and globally to the nursing profession itself. The purpose of this paper is to describe this author’s role as a moral agent or advocate for a specific issue in this author’s work, and explain one or more negative outcomes that may result if this role is not fulfilled. This paper will also analyze the skills, dispositions, and strategies necessary to help this author fulfill this role, and explain this author’s motivation for taking a stand. Role as an Advocate Advocacy has been described in ethical and legal frameworks, and as a philosophical foundation for practice (Negarandeh et al., 2007). Malik (1997) states that “the core condition which demands advocacy action is the vulnerability of a patient, either personal vulnerability due to illness and/or the vulnerability to risks inherent in the institutional processes to which the patient is exposed in the health care system.” As a nurse discharge planner case manager, part of this author’s job is to identify......

Lemonade stand (DGLs) accounting summary is a quantitative snapshot of financial transactions that have occurred during the first season of operation of DGLs. This accounting summary report has two aspects: to generate common accepted financial statements that reflect the health of the business and to provide concise but insightful interpretations and necessary recommendations deduced from the data (Larson, 2008). Financial Position Summary Appendix I: Daily Seasonal Data * The seasonal data was used as an “ad hoc” journal or daily receipts record to build each of the financial worksheets. Appendix II: Financial Journal The DGLs Financial Journal is the formal recording of five aspects of a transaction that is found in the Daily Seasonal Data: (1) its date, (2) brief description of the transaction, (3) ledger account to be debited and amount, (4) ledger account to be credited and amount, and its (5) cross-reference title for other financial reports. It also includes additional data entries such as the weather condition on that day and number of hours the stand was open to help “flush out” the other factors affecting the DGLs. This approach provides an audit trail and a means of analyzing the effects of daily transactions on DGLs’s financial position. * The DGLs first......

Stand by Me

...“Stand By Me” is a film directed by Rob Reiner, which is based on the novella “The Body” by Stephen King. Stand By Me is the story of four twelve year olds living in a small town in the year 1959, whose lives were changed by a chance adventure that they embarked on at the end of an indolent summer. The four boys were Gordie Lachance (Wil Wheaton), Chris Chambers (River Phoenix), Teddy Duchamp (Corey Feldman), and Vern Tessio (Jerry O'Connell). It fits into the film genre coming of age. This genre is outlines as a small group of individuals who have a life changing experience in the natural world. They are usually are the same sex, If not the opposing character would be more masculine/feminine and clearly more suited to hanging round with the group of the opposite sex. The director of the film is keen to show a very strong message, which is apparent though out the film. We are alone in this long journey to adulthood. He expresses this in a variety of ways. One method is cinematography. He frequently uses perspective and panoramic shots, which charts their long, eventful but beautiful journey to the back Harlow Road. The incoming train is another way Reiner shows the boys fear of adulthood. The train is a large, opposing and fast moving object; the threat is objective rather than impersonal. It is one of the imagery factors used he uses to add to his message. Other references to the adult world are seen as enclosed and often hazy,......

The expectation for my team has been to provide a family friendly atmosphere and service with a smile. In my opinion, we have done just that, Lottie's Lemonade has been in business now for a little over a year and every month since we opened our doors we have seen double digit growth in our profit percentages. It is now time for me to start focusing on expansion and employee growth. BRANDING STRATEGY Lottie's started out using the "Free and Freemium" pricing strategy. After a couple of months the customer demand increased and we were able to switch to a different pricing strategy and were able to raise our prices to keep up with the demand. Due to the increase in demand, we have had longer lines, so we created a website for our customers to place their orders online and have it ready for them upon their arrival. I have also implemented a rewards program for our customers. If they order 10 glasses of lemonade, they will receive a free 32oz glass in a specially designed mug that they can take home with them, of course with Lottie's logo on it.

...QINGBO FENG SALES MANAGEMENT FRESH FRUIT STAND BACKGROUND Tulane students typically eat little fresh fruit, and after some research, I conclude it into several basic reasons. First, this is a food culture thing in American hospitality industry. Sometimes people simply don’t like fruits and vegetables, but often American diet is simply not fruit or veggie-centric. If you look at most menus posted in LBC in front of each food counter, you will notice that the entrees are primarily meat or grain based: “BEEF STEAK”, “ROSTED CHICKEN”, “PASTA DISH””SAUSAGE PIZZA””SANWADGE””STEAMED RICE””HAMBURGER”… Salad served in LBC tends to consist of some vegetables and fruit, but the amount of fruit is really limited. Usually, Fruit is only an after-thought in most dishes, or people tend to enjoy fruit during the break in afternoon. But existing cup-fruit is standardized and is not flexible for the preference of different fruits. it’s disappointing for some people because of the limited varieties there. Different people have different appetite for fruit. For example, Apple is known as the “king of fruit”, but I still keep on hearing some people’ complains about the bad taste of apple. Furthermore, fruits and vegetables also haven’t been extensively packaged in ready-to-eat forms. There are rows and rows of “open and eat” lunch meats, cheeses, cereals, granola bars, crackers, but just a handful of easy to consume, fresh fruit options. Most fruits require washing and peeling, perhaps......
