Both stories depend upon illusions, or possible illusions. Does Young Goodman Brown really encounter the devil in his walk through the woods? Or is the man a creature of his imagination? Does Jane really see a woman behind the wallpaper? Or is she hallucinating? In each case the author is ambiguous on the point to involve the reader more firmly in the dilemma of the main character.

Both stories depend upon repressed sexuality. Faith wants Brown to remain with her and have relations. Brown rejects her and goes to fulfill his "evil purpose." Jane both desires and resents John and has no satisfactory outlet for her sexual needs.

Both stories end with the protagonist rejecting the world. Young Goodman Brown becomes an embittered, sour, cynical, standoffish man. Jane descends into madness.

However, Brown manages to live in the world, albeit in an emotionally cramped, pushed-away fashion. He and Faith must have had intercourse—how Brown must have cringed!—because there are plenty of children and grandchildren by the end of "Young Goodman Brown." Jane, on the other hand, is unable to deal with her feelings. One has the feeling that there can be no reconciliation between her and her doctor husband. The note of despair is carried through differently

The portrayal of the masquerade ball foreshadows the similar setting of the carnival in “The Cask of Amontillado,” which appeared less than a year after “The Masque of the Red Death.” Whereas the carnival in “The Cask of Amontillado” associates drunken revelry with an open-air Italian celebration, the masquerade functions in this story as a celebratory retreat from the air itself, which has become infected by the plague. The masquerade, however, dispels the sense of claustrophobia within the palace by liberating the inner demons of the guests.…...

They also used pottery as an important form of expression and storytelling. This showed different aspects of their culture throughout the ages.

Tax Saving Schemes - India 2009 (Analysis & Comparision)

...INTERIM REPORT TAX SAVING SCHEMES (ANALYSIS AND COMPARISION) ICFAI BUSINESS SCHOOL HYDERABAD MUTUAL FUNDS AT A GLANCE Mutual Fund is an instrument of investing money. Nowadays, bank rates have fallen down and are generally below the inflation rate. Therefore, keeping large amounts of money in bank is not a wise option, as in real terms the value of money decreases over a period of time. One of the options is to invest the money in stock market. But a common investor is not informed and competent enough to understand the intricacies of stock market. This is where mutual funds come to the rescue. A mutual fund is a group of investors operating through a fund manager to purchase a diverse portfolio of stocks or bonds. Mutual funds are highly cost efficient and very easy to invest in. By pooling money together in a mutual fund, investors can purchase stocks or bonds with much lower trading costs than if they tried to do it on their own. Also, one doesn't have to figure out which stocks or bonds to buy. But the biggest advantage of mutual funds is diversification. Diversification means spreading out money across many different types of investments. When one investment is down another might be up. Diversification of investment holdings reduces the risk tremendously. On the basis of their structure and objective, mutual funds can be classified into following major types: • Closed-end funds •......

Many similarities and differences exist concerning the two roles of public policing and private security.

Linux vs. Windows: A Comparison of Application and Platform Innovation Incentives for Open Source and Proprietary Software Platforms Nicholas Economides and Evangelos Katsamakas ABSTRACT The chapter analyzes and compares the investment incentives of platform and application developers for Linux and Windows. We find that the level of investment in applications is larger when the operating system is open source rather than proprietary. The comparison of the levels of investment in the operating systems depends, among others, on reputation effects and the number of developers.

Job Comparision

...Having a job and having a career means two different things to me. For the last three years I have held a job as a customer service rep. For me in this field I really don’t see much growth unless you are willing to be a very extreme and repetitive person. I have learned in the last two in a half years of being in this profession that it is not something I would continue to do. To compare what I am in school to do and what I have done over the last two in half years is a big difference. Far as the customer service field I can say that it is job security and that I have benefits but not much more. I don’t have leadership that is really driven for the best other than meeting quotas and stats. I have the repetitive and simplicity of the job and the same atmosphere. I have given my all and best to my current job and everyday grow to hate it more. For the most part the atmosphere is very open to any type of person to work in the field. There is not much that goes into screening for a customer service position. Which for me I feel makes for a not to safe environment. I have meet some great people who work at my current job but they are not happy with the overall working conditions either. The pay is not the best and not may incentives that are given to strive to be better. The opportunity for promotion is given not because of your job performance but more for if management feels that you are a good candidate or not. So for me this is not a good job or working situation for me at......

...Freshwater and Saltwater Fishing Fishing is a sport enjoyed by many outdoor enthusiast. There is nothing like hearing the sharp, high pitched whining of the reel as your line gets pulled into the depths of the glistening, crystal clear, salty water. There are two types of fishing; saltwater and freshwater. Many people do not realize the vast differences in the two types of fishing, or even the obvious similarities. Selecting the right equipment for the different fishing styles, such as tackle and bait, can make or break an anglers day. Any fisherman needs some basic gear to be successful on the water. Whether it is saltwater or freshwater fishing, there are three essential parts to a fishing setup. The first would be a fishing pole. This is used to string your line and allow you to reel it back in once you have hooked a fish. The second would be your line which is used to cast out into the water. The last vital component to any fishing setup would be the hook. With any luck, the fish will latch onto your hook and you can reel it in. The main differences in freshwater and saltwater fishing is the type of tackle that is used. Lakes and ponds are usually the main spots for freshwater fishing, whereas saltwater fishing is done in the massive ocean. These size differences in the water holes has a drastic affect on the size of your catch. Freshwater fish are typically smaller, usually around 10 pounds, while saltwater fish can be as big as a car.

...Comparison of theory Krystal Williams Grand Canyon University February 25, 2015 It is important to get a full understanding on biopsychosocial model of addiction. Within the biopsychosocial model, there psychological theories and biological theories. In this paper there will be a summary that will describe a psychological theory of addiction and a biological theory of addiction. It will also discuss whether or not these theories will be used in the future practice and why. Neurobehavioral theory Neurobehavioral theory is a biological theory that overlaps with biological determinists and is the Neurobehavioral School of thoughts. What that means is, neurobehavioral theory has an attraction through the individual neurological pathways and the environment. The neurons of the body must work together to reinforce the neuro-chemical bonds and the neurons so they will function. As stated in the book, “Concepts of Chemical Dependency” “If the neurons fire in sequence in response to the same stimuli a neural network is formed. For instance, if you smoke a cigarette and each time the smoke is inhaled the neural connection between smoking and stress relief will be reinforced. When the neurons do not function right it is because the brain is not functioning though to the chemicals that is being intake, like the nicotine from the inhale of smoke. It will then cause the brain to over learn. When repeating the activation of the reward cascade, the over learning process is intended.......

Dollhouse Comparision

...‘‘Love vs. Hate relationship” After watching the film “A Dollhouse” by Hendrik Ibsen, I seen that there is was a love and hate relationship between the characters Mrs. Linde and Nora. A contrasting difference in the characters, are shown not in the characters themselves, but the role that they play in their marriages. These two women have different relationships with their husbands. Torvald and Nora have a relationship where there is no fairness. She plays the submissive role in a society where the lady plays the passive role. Her most important duty is to please her husband, Torvald, making her role similar to a slave. Torvald also considers himself to be superior to her. Nora was raised in such a way that her role in their day and time required her to do whatever her husband said to do. It all started when she was younger and her father never gave her the opportunity to think for herself and to be independent. That lead her to being so submissive and the results was her not being able to have her own mind. As for Cristine and Krogstad their relationship is much more open to us. It is clear that if Cristine and Krogstad were to engage in an argument, it is more likely that they would come to an agreement soon after. When Mrs. Linde and Nora are put in comparison, both are willing to sacrifice themselves for other things that are dear to them. Mrs. Linde shows her loyalty to her family when she knew that she had the right......
