Jack the Ripper was in his prime at a time when the media had a strong control over society and society had as a whole was becoming much more literate. Jack started his killing campaign at a time of political controversy between the liberals and social reformers along with the Irish Home rule partisans. The reports of Jack the Ripper were collected and reported by the police, but then the different newspapers with their political influences slightly distorted the stories to give them their own effect. It has been more the one hundred years since the last murder and there is no longer any more original evidence, and the "facts" about the stories have changed over time due to different writers or differing sources. The press changed Jack the Ripper from being a depressed killer of prostitutes to one of the most romantic figures seen throughout history. One fact that most sources agreed upon was that the Ripper was a killer who wanted nothing more than to strike fear into the entire city by horribly mutilating his victims and then leaving them in locations where they were sure to be seen. Jack was the type of killer that wants fame and loved the fact that his "name" was on everyone's lips and was able to strike fear into anyone and everyone's heart. In the late 1800's "Jack the......

Jack and Jill

...Jill v. Jack Facts: Jill asks Jack to give her an estimate in the price of building a fence around her orchard. Jack inspects and measures Jill’s apple orchard and gives Jill an estimate of $1,000. Jill agrees to the price and they sign a contract. Jill, however, had in mind a fence around her peach orchard that is much larger. Jack says he cannot build a fence around the peach orchard for $1,000, but Jill wants to hold Jack to the $1,000 for a fence around the peach orchard, and sues Jack for breach of contract. Issue: Can Jill sue Jack for breach of contract? Rule: Breach of contract states “A failure of a party to a contract to perform his or her obligations as agreed to within the contract”. Contract law allows for judicial intervention in the event of a breach that is substantial, that goes to the root of the contract, also stated to be fundamental, by relieving the non-breaching party of his or her obligations and exposing the breaching party to damages or, if appropriate, an order for performance of the breached contractual obligation. Application: In Order for a contract to exist you have to have five elements: 1) Offer 2) Acceptance 3) Consideration 4) Legality 5) Capacity Under the common law, the offer had to be definite enough to establish the material terms of the contract. If material terms of the contract were not present in the offer, than a contract would not be found to exist. So the first element was not covered due...

...15% Title of essay: On 8 August 2014, Khazanah National announced plans to privatise Malaysia Airlines (MAS) in an attempt to revive the national carrier as it was struggling financially. Without doubt, the twin aviation disasters, MH370 and MH17, have also further contributed negatively towards MAS financials. The former prime minister of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the national flag carrier should be privatised as it is running at a loss. The Malaysia Airlines System Employees Union (Maseu), on the other hand, strongly stated that they will only support the privatisation of MAS if there is to be a new management team. In the past 12 years, MAS has undertaken about half-a-dozen restructuring exercises. Considering its current situation, the idea to privatise is seen as a necessity. In your opinion, can MAS turn itself around if it is now to be privatised? Why or why not? Justify your stand and support your arguments with reasons and examples. You should write between 600 and 650 words.

He grew up during China’s cultural revolution and did not have the privilege to learn English. However, as China was opening up to the West, he saw an opportunity to learn English from the tourists who were visiting China. Every morning Jack Ma rode his bike for Forty minutes to get to the nearest tourist spot, so that he could learn English from the foreigners in exchange for a city tour. His dedication to learn English paid off, when he finally became an English teacher, after being rejected from KFC and dozens of other jobs (Stone & D’onfro, 2014).

...Jack Kerouac's Rejection of Traditional Values in On the Road One of the most notable aspects of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, is the author’s willingness todescribe his own behaviors and attitudes in ways that reject traditional values, but enable himto make observations about America. These range from things like excessive drinking, whichwould always be viewed negatively, to an interest in jazz and racial mixing, which would have been viewed negatively in the 1950’s but not today. Also, Kerouac was part of a literarymovement – the Beats – whose rejection of traditional values was well known. BecauseKerouac rejected traditional values, On the Road was very controversial, but it was alsoinfluential.On the Road is a clearly autobiographical book, in which “Kerouac makes no attempt toseparate himself from his narrator” (Bartlett 125). On the Road is based on Kerouac’s actualexperiences, and the characters are based on actual people who he knew. (Bartlett 120;Latham; Charters 410-411). Therefore, Kerouac admits to doing anything that the narrator, SalParadise, did.One form of behavior that would be always be viewed negatively is excessive drinking. Saloften admits to drinking, but Kerouac uses this to make some interesting observations. For example, there is the time when Sal is with his friend Terry, and her brother Rickey andRickey’s friend Ponzo. Since Ponzo is in the business of buying and selling manure, they planto spend the say looking for manure, but they end up spending......

Management Jack Ma

...1. What did Jack Ma do that was so different from other company leaders? In what ways is he a revolutionary? The difference between Jack Ma and the other companies’ leaders is Jack Ma focus more to the customers compared to the shareholders, bank and partners. His philosophy shows that customer is placed at No.1, major owner are No 2 while shareholders are No 3. He also states that an IPO was never have been their goal. As he said “We will continue to adhere to the principle of customer first, employees second, shareholders third”. Even Alibaba have become one of the greatest companies after they made a new IPO record in the history of New York Stock Exchange, but they will continue with their principle which is to protect the benefit of customers and shareholders and also to support their employees. Another difference between Jack Ma with other company leaders is Jack Ma only owns 7.8% of Alibaba’s shares that is surprisingly low for an owner of a big successful company which is less than 10%. The reasons why Jack Ma doing that is because he needed a large amount of capitals from external environment especially powerful foreign partners to help the growth of his company. Due to the shares that shareholders holding, Masayoshi Son’s Softbank owns 36% of Alibaba’s shares while Yahoo owns 24% of Alibaba’s shares which are larger than the shares hold by Jack Ma which was only 7.8% of the total shares. Jack Ma probably will be losing the ownership table if Alibaba goes public...

...Despite the many murders that occurred frequently in Eastend in the 1880’s, Ripper’s murders were said to be ‘singular’ and ‘peculiar’ which suggests that it was unique and that the method of murder was very different. The phrases ‘extraordinary violence’ and ‘excess of effort’ infers that Jack the Ripper was vicious, brutal and went over the top. The victims were the ‘poorest of poor’ so the murderer was not trying to rob the victims. Since there was ‘no adequate motive in the shape of plunder’ it suggests that Jack the Ripper committed these crimes because he or she enjoyed killing. However the source describes the work of Jack the Ripper as the ‘work of a demented being’ which suggests that Jack the Ripper was mad. 2. Study Sources A, B and C Does the evidence of Source C support the evidence of Sources A and B about the Ripper murders? Explain your answer. (8) Sources A and C comment on how the victims were poor so money was not the murderer’s motive. Also the details of how the victim was murdered in source C supports the fact, in source A, that the murder was peculiar and had extra-ordinary violence. However source C is more detailed on the method of murder whereas source A is general describing the murder but not the method. Source C supports source A to a very little extent. Sources B and C agree on the fact that the murder was committed with the use of a knife – ‘In the neck there was a long incision’ ‘cutting the...
