Music Essay

The Beatles' changed our world by introducing a new musical style and sense of creativity in popular culture in the 1960s.This band formed by four youngh men, John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals) started their carrer playing in small places such us The Cavern , now known as a legendary place in the city.

Final Fantasy Captures Lara Croft: Acquisitions and Alliances in Electronic Games

...FINAL FANTASY CAPTURES LARA CROFT: ACQUISITIONS AND ALLIANCES IN ELECTRONIC GAMES Square Enix chose to make alliance in some occasions and acquisitions in others depending upon the needs and the situation of the game developer company. It is based on the environmental conditions in which the CEO thinks will work for the company best. In the presence of a stiff competition, it is a high urgency to expand since Square Enix’s goals could not be reached by focusing only in the current market. The easiest and better way is by acquisition. It’s not difficult to take control an acquired entity unlike in alliances. Acquisition of British Eidos Group Company enables Square to expand market internationally. In the other hand, valuation for acquisition on tangible asset like Eidos Group studio is easy. Moreover, it expands more markets outside Japan. Because of high level of uncertainty present in the new markets for instance in the US, it’s wiser to make ally with a stronger partner than to acquire the company and take the whole risk. Through this, Square may possibly attract and expand a new market with more confidence. Square Enix can also benefit by having access to different game markets from the allied companies. Depending upon the situation, sometimes acquisition let companies gain a wider access to geographical markets greater than alliance or do-it-yourself strategy. In some other instances alliance enables companies to share the potential risk and minimizes any......

Generally, state regulations parallel or exceed federal regulations and have different methods of surveying, inspecting, investigating, and enforcing action (Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, 2001-2014). Long-term care facilities in Michigan are licensed and also regulated by the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) (Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, 2001-2014). LARA is responsible for licensing and certifying long-term care facilities in Michigan (Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, 2001-2014). LARA also establishes a bed capacity, policy of patient rights and responsibilities, and procedures to implement patient rights and responsibilities (Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, 2001-2014). Complaints may also be directed to LARA for analysis, investigation, and recommendation for compliance to be met, if necessary (Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, 2001-2014).

...Famous people and works Ancient Greek society placed considerable emphasis on literature and, according to many, the whole Western literary tradition began there, with the epic poems of Homer. In addition to the invention of the epic and lyric forms of poetry, though, the Greeks were also essentially responsible for the invention of drama, and they produced masterpieces of both tragedy and comedy that are still reckoned among the crowning achievements of drama to this day. Indeed, there is scarcely an idea discussed today that has not already been debated and embroidered on by the writers of ancient Greece. The epic poems attributed to Homer are usually considered the first extant work of Western literature, and they remain giants in the literary canon for their skillful and vivid depictions of war and peace, honor and disgrace, love and hatred. Hesiod was another very early Greek poet and his didactic poems give us a systematic account of Greek mythology, the creation myths and the gods, as well as an insight into the day-to-day lives of Greek farmers of the time. The fables of Aesop represent a separate genre of literature, unrelated to any other, and probably developed out of an oral tradition going back many centuries. Sappho and, later, Pindar, represent, in their different ways, the apotheosis of Greek lyric poetry. The earliest known Greek dramatist was Thespis, the winner of the first theatrical contest held at Athens in the 6th Century BCE. Choerilus,......

Gender and Video Games

...Valency of Lara Croft”. In her essay, Mikula accuses video games of poor portrayals of gender and being extraneously violent. She writes, “Her body is excessively feminine-her breasts are massive and very pert, her waist is tiny, her hips are rounded and she wears extremely tight clothing (9)… she is clearly shaped by the desire to embody male sexual fantasies… (15)”, questioning whether “Lara Croft is a (genuine) feminist icon or (mere) sexist fantasy” (181). On the flip side, Lara is also depicted as intelligent, articulate, strong, and defeats enemies who are largely male, and many video games enthusiasts would argue that Lara Croft is actually a symbol of strong independent women and a role model for women. To begin let’s first take a quick and brief overview of who Lara Croft is. Lara Croft is the protagonist of the video game franchise Tomb Raider. As hinted on before, she is portrayed as an intelligent, beautiful, independent, and resourceful acclaimed English archeologist and adventurer who enjoys exploring tombs and ruins around the world. To many people, these attributes qualifies her as the pioneer of the non-stereotyped heroines in the industry of video games. However, whether Lara Croft is a symbol of feminism to be admired by female gamers or a sex object crafted to quench the male sexual fantasy often raises debates amongst gamers and feminists. As much as the concerned parties would love a straightforward unequivocal answer, the distasteful reality is that......

Week 8 - Making Ethical Decisions in Business

...The following is a script of "Chairman Ma" which aired on Sept. 28, 2014. Lara Logan is the correspondent. Howard Rosenberg, producer. By now you've probably heard of Alibaba, the Chinese Internet giant that's able to reach millions upon millions of previously unreachable Chinese consumers. The company went public this month on the New York Stock Exchange and became one of the most valuable in the world and Alibaba is just getting started. Everything about the Alibaba story is unconventional. Beginning with its founder, Jack Ma, who gained global celebrity status these past 10 days, as his image became ubiquitous on business news channels and media outlets across America. We got to know Jack Ma before the onslaught, beginning over a year ago in China, where he talked with us about his relationship with the Chinese government, and his unorthodox business philosophy, which surprisingly, gives shareholders almost no say over how he runs the company. Jack Ma: If you want to invest in us, we believe customer number one, employee number two, shareholder number three. If they don't want to buy that, that's fine. If they regret, they can sell us. Lara Logan: In the U.S., the shareholder is usually first. Jack Ma: Yeah. And I think they were wrong. The shareholder, good. I respect them. But they're the third. Because you've take care of the customer, take care of the employees, shareholder will be taken care of. Ma's unconventional view didn't stop Wall Street from......

Women and Media

...from a presidential candidate to a nurse (Boomen, 2009). Barbie does not engage in domestic duties and as stated by Lord, motherhood definitely wasn’t Barbie’s area of interest (Boomen, 2009). Subsequently in the late 1990s, Lara Croft emerged as the first main female character in video games. Prior to this, women only played supporting roles. As a female warrior, Lara was “eroticized as a woman and masculinized as action heroine” (Smelik, 2009). Lara embodied attributes commonly associated with the male persona: strong, independent, determined and ‘kick-ass attitude’. Analogous to Barbie’s, Lara’s figure is the idealistic female form, “eroticized on screen” (Smelik, 2009). Despite their sexualized image, the absence of permanent male companions in the lives of both Barbie and Lara emphasizes their narcissistic independence (Smelik, 2009; Boomen, 2009). In the later years, 2003 and 2004, the female action heroine character took on a whole new form when Beatrix Kiddo from the movie Kill Bill egressed as a highly complex heroine. The shift from Lara’s one-dimensional character to Kiddo’s multi dimensional character exhibits the increase in dimensions and depth of female personality portrayed by media figures. Apart from the traits embodied by Lara, Kiddo is not submissive, stands up for herself, is an assassin and at the same time, a mother (Smelik, 2009). A remarkable difference is that unlike Lara’s, Kiddo’s physique is never sexualized (Smelik, 2009). On the......
