Music and Mood Music has the potential to enhance the mood in a personal relationship. The popularity of different music shows how much it is a part of our culture. Music is found in the past and present widely, between times and places. All people in the world, including tribal groups, have some form of music. Music is played for ceremonial purposes, recreation, expression, and healing in these different tribal groups. The tribal groups also use music to invoke spirts, ask for rain, or used to heal the sick. They also use music as part of a method of passing down oral traditions and history. These different songs were in the range from public songs, to sometimes historical; to be kept as part of their history. Tribal groups do this to keep their culture and history intact forever. They do this by using vocals. Tribal groups may seem to not be in harmony but they are very passionate singers. Different kinds of music can make or break your mood. Music is important to our emotional state. It can have on our overall feelings and focus. It has been used for years to change our energy levels, improve our mood and help people when they are ill or suffering from an emotional trauma. One example is Blues Music when you’re feeling nervous or anxious. This may sound different but the rhythm of blue music can bring your heart rate down and calm you. Also there are rock and punk types of music. The beats of these types of music can give you an energy boost and pump up your adrenaline. If you have anger issues, try listening to Reggae to calm you down. You also have dance music, if you want to feel good fast, the beats of dance music will make you want to shake your booty in no time, because of the high energy levels. Classical music has a power to uplift or calm a person. Mainstream pop/rock can…...

Comparing Classes

...Thesis: When choosing classes for college comparing and contrasting the classes is very helpful. Online class vs. Traditional class is a common decision many college students have to make. I. Location -Workplace -Home -School II. Interaction -Friends -Teacher -Discussion III. Accessibility -online -In Classroom Comparing online classes to traditional classes’ people generally pick traditional, because that’s all they have ever known. These days, there are many different ways to access higher education. One can enroll in a traditional program, attending classes and accessing educational resources on campus. Someone can also enroll in an all-online program, in which the majority of your schoolwork and communications are completed via the Internet. Or there's the in-between option: Blended learning environments that combine on-campus and online coursework. Online courses typically allow students to work together, which means that they can complete their coursework at the time and place of their choosing. This is often ideal for working students or single parents who need a flexible schedule. However, students who struggle to be self-motivated may find that they quickly fall behind (Cooper).Of course; the primary reason you're in class is to learn and develop new skills. For some students, this can be very difficult without the direct, face to face input of an instructor. If a person doesn't learn well from books and other written material one may......

...find that their hypotheses were all confirmed, proving that females in prime-time television remain playing more interpersonal roles while men continue to play more work-related roles. When it comes to the content of this article, the wording and the structure of the paragraphs is very complicated for a normal reader. A good example would be when the authors quote, “Prior research has examined how fulfillment of these roles signals predispositions toward communal versus agentic goals” (qtd. in Lauzen et. al. 201). Within this article, there are many sentences, like the one quoted, that would likely make a reader stop and re-read the sentence. It’s not just that the words themselves are hard to understand, it’s also of the flow of the paper. The authors use so many sources, some new and some old, which may lead to the reader being confused about what exact topic they are trying to cover. For example, in the section on “Building Gender Stereotypes Based on Social Roles,” (Lauzen et. al. 201) the authors bring up at least 15 different references or citations to other sources, making it very hard to follow the overall discussion. Just like the complicated wording, the examples and many of the sources the authors use in this article have many flaws. When first reading this article, a reader may think they are reading about the different gender stereotypes in prime-time television, but later will realize that this is a very biased article due to the fact that the authors are......

Comparing Endings

...Comparing Endings In ancient Greece plays were a big part of society. They had festivals to celebrate these plays and crown the best at each of these festivals. Many plays were written and, thus, many different types of endings were created for them. Sometimes this would entail a technique known as Deus ex Machina. This would involve a god coming in at the end of the play and settling all of the issues. To act this out they would have the actor come down from a crane like machine. Other playwrights chose to end the play with characters settling all of issues but leaving room for interpretation. Both of these styles have been used in the plays we have read in the second half of this class. In Philoctetes Sophocles chooses to use Deus ex Machina to end it while he chose to end it with his characters in Oedipus Rex. In this paper I will analyze the endings of both Philoctetes and Oedipus Rex and how effectively they close out their respective plays. In Philoctetes Odysseus and Neoptolemos are charged with the task of retrieving Philoctetes from the island he was left on by the Greek army. Once they get there they attempt to trick Philoctetes into giving them his bow, thinking this was all they needed to end the Trojan War. However after Philoctetes realizes it is Odysseus that is trying to trick him into going with them he refuses to go with them. Philoctetes tells them to go on without him and then begins to mope about his life. After arguing with Neoptolemos about going to...

Comparing Ifrs to Gaap Paper

...Comparing IFRS to GAAP Paper There are several differences between the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and the U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The IFRS is considered more of a "principles based" accounting standard in contrast to U.S. GAAP which is considered more "rules based." By being more "principles based", IFRS, arguably, represents and captures the economics of a transaction better than U.S. GAAP. As a team me collaborated to answer the following seven questions. IFRS 2-1: In what ways does the format of a statement of financial of position under IFRS often differ from a balance sheet presented under GAAP? IFRS does not mandate a specific order or classification of accounts on the statement of financial position. In most cases, companies report assets in reverse order of liquidity. An example of the order of accounts on the statement of financial position is as follows: Long Term Assets Current Assets Shareholder Equity Long Term Liabilities Current Liabilities GAAP specifically requires that all accounts be ordered based on their degree of liquidity. Therefore, cash is usually reported first and non-current assets will be reported last. Below is an example of the order typically found on a GAAP balance sheet: Current Assets Long Term Assets Current Liabilities Long Term Liabilities Shareholder Equity IFRS 2-2: Do the IFRS and GAAP conceptual frameworks differ in terms of the objective of financial reporting?......

...• Decreases in economic benefits during the accounting period in the form of outflows or depletions of assets or incurrences of liabilities that result in decreases in equity other than those relating to distributions to shareholders. • Note that under IFRS expenses include both those costs incurred in the normal course of operations, as well as losses that are not part of normal operations. This is in contrast to GAAP, which defines each separately. • • • IFRS 7-1: Some people argue that the internal control requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) of 2002 put U.S. companies at a competitive disadvantage to companies outside the United States. Discuss the competitive implications (both pros and cons) of SOX. • Pro: Since the implementation of the SOX legislation it is very obvious that investors and stock buyers have gained trust in the openly and publicly traded companies. This is not a bad thing in any way. By mandating that the publicly traded companies participate in more external and internal audits along with keep a strong and organized internal system, this brings much more confidence in the companies as it makes them transparent. If only our government had to do the same thing!!! • • Con: We all know that by implementing new rules, regulations and legislation, it will always cost the company who it is being forced upon. Then the cost is past on to the consumer of the products, US! Even if there is rules stating that the company can not past the cost......

...Comparing IFRS to GAAP Paper ACC/291 Comparing IFRS to GAAP Essay RECONCILING FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Different assets, liabilities, and equity instruments are measured at fair value. The standards in U.S. GAAP and IFRS that require or permit fair value measurements are different. As a consequence, an asset, liability, or equity instrument that is measured at fair value in U.S. GAAP might not be measured at fair value in IFRS and vice versa. The Boards have separate projects to address the measurement basis in other standards (for example, the projects to address the accounting for financial instruments and leases). There will be different accounting requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRS for measuring the fair value of investments in investment company entities. Some the disclosures about fair value measurements will be different for U.S. GAAP and IFRS. For example, IFRS do not distinguish between recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements. In addition, because IFRS generally do not allow net presentation for derivatives, the amounts disclosed for fair value measurements categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy might differ. COMPONENT DEPRECIATION Component depreciation happens when an asset has fundamentally different parts that should be......

...Comparing IFRS to GAAP Paper In this paper, I will be talking about what the International Financial Accounting Standards (IFRS) is, and General Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) are and what differences as well as similarities. IFRS is a set of international accounting standards that regulate what type of events and transactions should be reported in a financial statement. GAAP is accounting rules that keep a detailed logistical account of what is declared by the company. FRS 2-1: In what ways does the format of a statement of financial or position under IFRS often differ from a balance sheet presented under GAAP? Although the IFRS does not have a specific order that it must be listed on the statement, companies tend to report in reverse order of liquidity such as: Long Term Assets Current Assets Shareholder Equity Long Term Liabilities Current Liabilities GAAP requires that accounts are ordered based on the degree of liquidity which report cash first and non-current assets last such as: Current Assets Long Term Assets Current Liabilities Long Term Liabilities Shareholder Equity IFRS 2-2: Do the IFRS and GAAP conceptual frameworks differ in terms of the objective of financial reporting?

Comparing/Contrasting

...Your goal is to write an essay showing how two subjects are either similar or different (not both). When comparing subjects, show how they are similar. When contrasting them, show how they are different. In a comparison/contrast paper, be sure to develop a thesis that includes words that signal comparisons, such as “although,” “even though,” “in spite of,” “except for,” “not withstanding,” or “but.” Also, use appropriate transitions to signal comparisons and link paragraphs within the body of your paper, such as “on the other hand,” “in contrast,” “similarly,” “also,” “both,” “even though,” and “in the same way.” In order for two things to be worth comparing, the two things should initially appear to be different. In order for two things to be worth contrasting, the two things should initially appear to be similar. Comparing and contrasting are ways of exploring the similarities and differences between two things. 'Compare and contrast' is often used as a development strategy for essay assignments but it's a helpful strategy for any important decisions you have to make. Generally speaking, comparing is showing the similarities, and contrasting is showing differences between two things that are related in some way. For example, you wouldn't compare/contrast reading a book to driving a car, but you would compare reading a book to reading with an e-reader.

...Comparing IFRS to GAAP Essay ACC/291 10/12/15 James Ferguson Comparing IFRS to GAAP Essay The International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) have some similarities and differences when it comes to accounting for liabilities. There are steps that are taken by both the FASB and IASB to move to fair value measurement for financial instruments. There are some differences between these approaches. IFRS 8-1 What are some steps taken by both the FASB and IASB to move to fair value measurement for financial instruments? In what ways have some approaches differed? It doesn’t matter if the FASB or IASB is followed; the steps taken to move to fair value measurement for financial instruments are to be noted in the financial statements regarding fair value measurement practices. Under each system, a company must report the assets at book value or fair value situational depending. Every asset in the same class of assets must get the same valuation. When valuing receivables, the IFRS operates under a two-tiered method that will analyze individual receivables first then takes a look at receivables as a whole to see if there is any impairment. IFRS 9-1 What component depreciation, and when must it be used? Component depreciation should be used when parts of the assets are fundamentally different. It is when the asset has different components with varying lifespans. Under IFRS, companies are required to use component......

Comparing Colonies

...in charge of and it soon became the life support of this colony and also made Jamestown money. So it’s evident that money was the driving force of this colony. In the colony of Maryland things were a bit different being that the people mostly held its attention to freedom of religion and not so much on money. It wasn’t until 1649 when restless Protestants adopted the “Act Concerning Religion” that this religious freedom came about. Maryland and Virginia were similar when it came to their work ethic. Like Virginia, Maryland also grew their tobacco and made their money on it but this colony wasn’t entirely base on or known for their riches because religious freedom is really what they sought and what was most important to them. In comparing these two colonies it’s apparent in what ways they differ from one another although they shared a common ground in the need of money for survival, but it’s in the importance of it and the priorities of religion that made them different....

...Pascal Debowiak Mrs. Morse Comparing/Contrast Essay 02/03/16 The Environmental benefits of bicycling There are numerous reasons to own a car. Every day people drive a car to get to work, visit friends, buy groceries and complete many other chores. We are, like it or not, dependent on automobiles. However, bicycles are often a useful alternative and are more environmentally friendly. A car is but also costly and often difficult to pay for. To begin with, buying a two-year old car is smarter than purchasing a new one. After a new car depreciates a couple years, it can be purchased for thousands of dollars less. But whether buying new or used, the car’s cost is only part of the expense. Paying for insurance, maintenance, gas, and repairs adds significantly to the expense. Being able to repair a car yourself helps keep costs down, but there still is an expense. Costs of purchase, maintenance and repair aside, automobiles have an adverse effect on the environment that bicycles do not. Even before a car is driven it consumes energy. Automotive production leaves a giant footprint because materials such as steel, rubber, paints, plastics, and glass must be created before a new ride is ready to roll. But that’s not all; air quality suffers because vehicles are America’s biggest air quality compromisers, producing about one-third of all U.S air pollution. The also contribute to global warming. These findings have caused engineers to develop more eco-friendly cars for the future.......

Comparing Commercials

...Comparing Commercials One advertisement I chose to consider is the puppy monkey baby commercial that aired during super bowl 50. This advertisement was for Mountain Dew. I was horrified by this commercial. Another advertisement I chose to consider is an ad for Nissan. In the commercial they are advertising the Nissan Rogue. This commercial really grabbed my attention. I had actually said in the past that this was my favorite commercial because now-a-days most commercials are just ridiculous. Because it was such a good advertisement, it affected me in a good way as I still remember it since it last aired in 2015. In the Mountain Dew commercial, there is a hybrid which consists of a pug head, a monkey’s body, and a baby’s legs. The hybrid enters the room with a bucket of Mountain Dew’s new drink, kick start. The hybrid then starts dancing and handing out the drinks to three teenagers sitting on the couch. It seems as if they are targeting the younger generation. This commercial does not use logos to persuade the audience. The puppy monkey baby is not logical or realistic. This commercial does not use ethos to persuade the audience either. I did not get the impression the person behind the commercial had any good sense because I don’t believe there is such a thing as the puppy monkey baby. This commercial does use pathos to persuade the audience. If I had to guess, they are trying to appeal to the audience’s sense of humor. Perhaps I didn’t find it funny because I was......

...Comparing IFRS to GAAP ACC/290 June 5, 2016 Arin Smith Comparing IFRS to GAAP As international business increase those with financial responsibilities should be well versed in the two primary accounting methods: GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) and IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards). The Financial Accounting Standards Board set the GAAP which is primarily used in the United States and the IFRS is used in several other countries. It has been reported that the United States Security and Exchange Commission is planning to switch to IFRS in 2015 (Logue, 2011). While the two accounting methods share some similarities, there are some differences that could result in different reporting. Having a good understanding of both methods will allow companies to make business decisions that are effective and compliant. IFRS 2-1: In what ways does the format of a statement of financial or position under IFRS often differ from a balance sheet presented under GAAP? In my understanding, the IFRS does not give any specific order for the statement of financial position. If anything the, IFRS requires separation of current and noncurrent assets and liabilities. For a lot of the companies today they just report their assets in reverse order based off their liquidity. Now, the GAAP recommends separation of current and noncurrent assets and liabilities and also. require that all the accounts be in a specific ordered based on the liquidities hierarchy. IFRS......

...Comparing Oedipus and Othello For Oedipus and Othello “duty” should have their first priority. Othello’s duty was supposed to be the importance of his marriage, but he listened to Iago, ignored Desdemona, didn’t believe his own conscience, and his own heart. Oedipus’ duty was to defeat the Sphinx(which he does) free Thebes from heavy taxes(which he does) be a great king of Thebes and be a good husband, but instead he offends Creon, his brother-in-law and uncle; insults his friend, Tiresias the blind prophet; kills his father; and destroys Jocasta, his mother and his queen. Fatal flaws demolished the lives of both Oedipus and Othello. Othello was so proud of his honor and bravery that he didn’t recognize his violent temper and Iago’s mind tricks. Oedipus was so proud of his cleverness that he tried so hard to escape his own fate. With all that said, these were honestly just a couple of comparable traits between Oedipus and Othello. When looking for a great leader that would lead your city through anything and everything it is not hard to tell that both Oedipus and Othello could be those leaders. Both had great gifts in leadership. They stood up in what they believed in. Each held exceptional accomplishments and both possessed the ability to be an all-around leader. Othello was a respectable citizen who was usually known for his fighting or war success. He knew how and what the goal was to succeed. Not all leaders knew that. Oedipus was also somewhat the same. He,......
