* Good morning, Miss. * Good morning. * Your passport please. How long are you planning to stay in the country. * For about a month. I have a boyfriend here, he is fantastic. We started dating through the Internet and he said… * I’m sorry for interrupting you. These details are irrelevant. Can you put your bag on the table? * Sure. And here is my customs form. I hope my luggage is not too heavy, because I don’t have enough money for unplanned payments. * Nothing to worry about, lady, it weights only 3 kilos. * Thanks God. May I be off now? * Not yet. Do you have anything to declare? * Well… I want to declare that I love my boyfriend more than life, but… * You didn’t understand me. I am asking if you are taking something like alcohol, cigarettes, fresh fruit and so on. * Why are you asking? Do I look like a drunkard or a smoker? What a tactless question! I will sue youI want to see your employer! * Please calm down, miss. This is a standard question we ask every customer. I need you to give me a straight answer. So do you have anything like this? * Only five bottles of beer and five blocks of cigarettes, nothing more. * And you wanted to sue me?! Eh… I’m sorry. You may not bring in more than two bottles of alcohol and two blocks of cigarettes. * Really? That’s too bad! What shall I do with the rest? * I don’t know. Probably you have a friend nearby who can accept it. * I don’t have friends. Friends are for losers. Alright. I will just drink and smoke it right now. * It is prohibited to go aboard being drunk! * Ah, you have so many rules! I will simply throw it away, it is useless. * Wait, give it to me.

Dialogue – Visit to the Doctor / Medicine Labels

...Dialogue – visit to the doctor / medicine labels P - Good morning, Doctor. I decided to make an appointment with you because yesterday I had persistent cough and I also felt sick and giddy after taking the drug for stomach upset. D - Good morning. Did I write out the prescription for you? P - Yes, here it is. D - This drug is very strong. It is supposed to trigger such symptoms as drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, persistent cough and even rash. Let me check you up. I’ll measure your blood pressure, but firstly put a thermometer into your armpit. (After a while) D - Your temperature is in the normal range, but your blood pressure and pulse are low. Did you read medicine label before taking that medicine? P - No. I thought that your prescription and recommendations were enough to use it correctly. D - What dose did you take at once and in 24 hours? P - I took 2 pills after meals 3 times a day. D - So everything should have been all right then. You told me you had no serious diseases and allergies. What's wrong then? P - Just a few days ago I had thyroid enlargement (увеличение щитовидной железы) but I went on taking hat drug.

Great Dialogues for Plato-Phaedo

...Great dialogues of Plato—Crito In this chapter, Plato talked about the dialogues between Socrates and Criton, Socrates’ best friend in his whole life. In this time, Socrates had already been put into prison by the unfair adjudgement in the court and he was waiting for the death penalty. When a Greek ship from Delos came back, he needed to get the death penalty. Before this time, Criton had visited Socrates for a few times, and tried to persuade him escape from this prison, but it was not worked. In the beginning of this dialogue, Socrates asked Criton, “Why have you come at this time of day”? He was sleeping and even forgot the time. Criton wanted to convince him leave the prison, and he had already found someone to help Socrates if he could escape. It must be the last time to get out from this prison, because the ship would come soon. However, Socrates refused his suggestion depending on his own opinion about moral and law. Then they began to debate by several aspects. Criton thought that he should leave the prison because he was guiltless. And he used a few ways to persuade him, just like, he let Socrates think of his sons and said “It is your power to bring them up and educate them, and now you will go off and leave them, and so far as you are concerned, they must take their life as they find it”. And they would be in orphan, if you leave them. He appealed by emotion to persuade him not giving up his life. On the other hand, Criton illustrated their friendship. If......

...A Dialogue between a Rabbi and an Atheist about the Problem of Evil (On a sunny Monday morning in Ukraine, Rabbi Samuel Goldfarb is taking a leisurely walk through the town marketplace. The Rabbi is well loved and respected in the community, always exchanging greeting with the townspeople.

I would like to welcome you to town. What is your name? What brings you to this lovely town in Ukraine? Radislav: Nice to meet you Rabbi and good morning to you as well. My name is Radislav Venchkin. I just emigrated here from Poland. I was looking for a fresh start so I’m here trying the town out and trying to get a feel for the town and its culture. Rabbi: Radislav, you made an excellent choice. This town is a diverse town with a tight knit community. There is a close relationship between everyone in town even though it looks as if everyone is all over the place. I’m sure you will find it quite nice here. Radislav: Well Rabbi, I would love to hear more in detail about the community and what it has to offer. May I speak with you in a more formal setting? Rabbi: It would be my pleasure Radislav.

Philosophical Dialogue

...Philosophical Dialogue (from Philosophy Pages) Verbal discussion of serious topics is in no way tangential to the practice of philosophy. From Socratic gatherings to the philosophical conventions of today, thinking things through out loud—and in the presence of others—has always been of the essence of the philosophical method. (Most philosophical texts embody this give-and-take, either in explicit use of dialogue form or by a more subtle alteration of proposal, objection, and reply in expository prose.) Your philosophical education demands that you enter into the great conversation of Western thought. A few suggestions may help: Be prepared Productive dialogue presupposes informed participants. This means that during every class session, each of us will have read the material assigned for the day, we will pay careful attention to what others have already said, and we will think carefully before speaking. Of course, each of us will often be mistaken, but none of us should ever speak randomly. Respect others Joint participants in dialogue show a deep, personal respect for each other. We owe it to each other to listen well and to give each other the benefit of doubt in interpreting charitably what has been said, trying always to see the worthwhile point. Although we will rarely find ourselves in total agreement on the issues at stake, we will never attack or make fun of each other personally. Expect conflict Disagreement with an expressed opinion and criticism of its...

When Storytelling Becomes Dialogue

...When storytelling becomes dialogue Starbucks has decided to try to capture some of the stories about people who has met their future wives and husbands at starbucks or people who had gotten married at starbucks, and then they will celebrate them as a part of a valentine’s day push. Starbucks believes that sharing some stories about people who has met their future wives and husbands at starbucks or people who had gotten married at starbucks, would reinforce the idea that starbucks is a great destination for a date or a chance meeting. Before moving forward with the idea, starbucks sponsored a telephone survey that included a lot of singles, and where most of the adults believed that a couple that met in a coffee-house has a better chance of succeeding in love than a couple that met in a bar. The reason is that bars tend to be noisy and expensive, where a coffee-house is more safe and affordable. With the match made over coffee contest, starbucks hoped to highlight the emotional dimension of the brand. The third place is the place between work and home where people congregate to find a sense of community, a place where you can be yourself and hang out – alone or with friends and family. starbucks is more than just coffee, it’s a certain experience and a good atmosphere. By tapping these stories, starbucks invites their customers to become a part of the brand, which is more appealing than anything they could do through traditional advertising. These new......

Dialogue Between Aristotle and Plato

...Joseph Nixon PHI/105 Dialogue between Plato and Aristotle Assignment P: Given the soul is imperishable, souls gather knowledge throughout their existence. Souls carry this knowledge in every earth-bound body they inhabit. The soul has learned everything during its prior worldly interactions as well as it’s time in the other world. It can be assumed a man’s soul has learned how the art of blacksmithing. This man’s soul, when reborn might not have the given knowledge to blacksmith an adequate sword, yet we should not be alarmed should he recall this knowledge. We must assume his soul learned the art of blacksmithing in a former life. A: I understand your argument, but submit the man you describe could learn the art of blacksmithing by simply seeing weapons and swords that have been created. The man can use the swords he has seen in creating one for himself. The man uses “similarity” to form his sword to the sword that has already been created. The man simply learns the art of blacksmithing through previously created weapons. P: How can you assume the man learned the art of blacksmithing? Is it not possible that his soul could have been a blacksmith in a former life. If this man was to create an exemplary sword, how can it be assumed he learned to create such perfection with it being his first time practicing the art of blacksmithing? A: Imagine you had no knowledge of geometry and namely circles. If I drew a circle and asked you to create a circle......

Plato Five Dialogues

...Abdulaziz Alkhars 12016972 Phil 334W Euthyphro had a struggle explaining his definition of what is the pious and the impious to Socrates in Plato, Five Dialogues. Although Euthyphro was confident to say that he was in well knowledge and accurate of the pious and what is not. Socrates asked a simple and general question “what is the pious and what is the impious?” expecting a clear and logic answer, Euthyphro explained that the pious is to prosecute the wrongdoer whether it was a relative or a stranger. Clearly Euthyphro answered the question in a very deep manner rather than a clear logic definition. Socrates immediately knew that Euthyphro did not answer his question in the form he desired. The question asked, “what is the pious and what is the impious?” should be approached in a broad manner. For example, if person A asks “what is philosophy?” person B answers “what you are doing now is considered philosophy” instead of giving a complete or exact definition of philosophy, he metaphorically suggested that person's A act of asking questions is what philosophy is all about, i.e. thinking, asking questions about the unknown granted that acknowledgment of ignorance and asking questions to gain knowledge is wisdom, the goal or telos of philosophy. Socrates continues to ask more questions to clarify Euthyphro’s mind about his ideology of the pious and impious. Euthyphro then claimed that what is pious is what is dear to the gods and Socrates ironically agrees that......

Organisational Dialogue

...Introduction “Changes happen by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you do not believe is right.” – Jane Goodall. There are lots of critiques who argue that dialogue can precisely transform the organisational culture and learning methods. Dialogue is a mutual understanding among the people and empowering them by letting speak and hear (Senge et al. 1999). Dialogue is a controversial subject that generally covers entire communication channel of an organisation (Schein 1993). However, dialogue has been an argumentative communication method that is least comparable to traditional approach of communication. Therefore, Schien (1993) suggest that in order to balance communication and exchange information, ‘dialogue is not only different form of many techniques that have been proposed before, but also that it has considerable promise as problem solving and problem formulating.’ Communication is integrated with an organisation to flow messages and information from top to bottom and vice versa (Tourish, D & Hargie, O 2009) where dialogue acts as a part of bringing up information, frustrations, ideas, present scenario that highly influence firm’s active participation for positive change. According to the Eisenberg, E.M., Goodall, H.L. and Trethewey, A (2010:33) communication plays a role of ‘moment to moment working out of tensions’ in an organisation. Basically to achieve targets and objectives that has been vision and paved by a......

Dialogue of Jason and Papiscus

...mentions the Dialogue twice. In Commentary on Galatians, in connection with he who is hanged on a tree is accursed of God (Commentary on Galatians, 2.3.13) and the Dialogue mis-citing Genesis 1:1 as "In the Son," (instead of "In the Beginning"), "God created the heaven and the earth." (Questions in Genesis, 2.507). "I Remember in the Dispute between Jason and Papiscus, which is composed in Greek, to have found it written: `The execration of God is he that is hanged.'" (Commentary on Galatians 3:13) "In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. The majority believe, as it is affirmed also in the Dispute between Jason and Papiscus, and as Tertullian in his book Against Praxeas contends, and as Hilarius too, in his exposition of one of the Psalms, declares, that in the Hebrew it is: `In the Son, God made the heaven and the earth.' But that this is false, the nature of the case itself proves." (Questions in Genesis)[3] The third source is a letter (mistakenly included in the works of Cyprian) to a certain "Bishop Vigilius" (not Vigilius of Thapsus) describing a translation from Greek to Latin by an otherwise unknown Celsus, (given the sobriquet Celsus Africanus by scholars), which also describes the Dialogue, including the information that Jason himself was a convert from Judaism, and the ending - that Papiscus is convinced and asks for baptism.[4][5] A recent discovery in St. Catherine's monastery at Mount Sinai provides more text quoted from the......

Dialogue Shakesphere

...cmbusch English III Segment 1 Module 3.07 Dialogue of what could have happened after the story (revision) Underlined the differences between 3.06 and 3.07 “I know why you felt offended by Fortunato” said Luchesi. “You could not begin to understand how he chuckled and made of my family prominence in our quaint town,” replied Montressor. He had this tight lip grin while he snickered, “he insulted the importance of my family throughout the years. History has been made by my family and all carcasses left in the town’s famous crypts shows affirmation of the strength of my family. The coat of arms is influential and Fortunato laughed at it”. Luchesi chortled and harshly replied, “Strength comes from within and your belief of how important your family is comes from within. Arrogantly deceiving a man, then killing him only shows that you are vulnerable and weak. You carry disbelief in yourself and your family. Silence shows strength, that is why I have such little to speak about”, confessed Luchesi. Dialogue of what could have happened after the story Module 3.06 “I know why you felt offended by Fortunato” said Luchesi. “You could not begin to understand how he made fun of my family status,” replied Montressor. “He mocked me and did not believe how important my family has been throughout the years.

Beckett's Three Dialogues

...Beckett’s Three Dialogues the key to his oeuvre In 1949, Samuel Beckett wrote a series of conversations between himself and a friend, George Duthuit. In these conversations, named Three Dialogues, Beckett and Duthuit discuss the works of three contemporary artists, Pierre Tal Coat, Andre Masson, and Bram van Velde. Three Dialogues was published in the second Transition, an experimental literary journal, and was written by Beckett and edited by George Duthuit. The history of the Three Dialogues is very important because prior to 1965, Three Dialogues was only ever published in fragments, aside from the original publication. These fragments were often placed out of context and looked as though they had been written in support of artist Bram van Velde. This lack of full publication lead to the piece being under examined and sometimes not fully understood. Over the years many critics have suggested that the Three Dialogues offers a special access to Beckett’s work, that they act as a key to his oeuvre. Some critics view the dialogues as the end of Beckett’s aesthetic development, some view it as a blue print for his following works, while others see it as a credo or manifesto like piece. Overall, weather you view it as the key, or merely another work, Three Dialogues definitely hints at, and sets up the future for Beckett’s collection of works. Three Dialogues foreshadows future structures, makes a template for character duos and dialogue, and most importantly sets up the......
