...T E C H N I C A L TECHNICAL The Greeks are coming STEVE JAY RELEVANT TO PAPER 3.7 The new Paper 3.7 Syllabus includes far more detail on options than the old Paper 14. This article looks at the areas involved in the ‘scope and benefits of financial engineering’ section of the syllabus. The reference to Greeks will become clear as we proceed. WHAT IS AN OPTION? The definition in finance is quite similar to that in every day language, i.e. an option is the right but not the obligation to perform a certain action. More specifically in finance it means that if we buy a call option we have the right but not the obligation to buy: • a fixed amount; • at a fixed time; • at a fixed price; • of the underlying instrument. On the other hand if we buy a put option we have the right but not the obligation to sell: • a fixed amount; • at a fixed time; • at a fixed price; • of the underlying instrument.

The Greeks

...innovation of the Greek phalanx, it was also the first time cavalry was intertwined with the combination of light infantry, slingers, archers, and javelin men. Phillip also built an admirable corps of engineers, which conducted research alongside sieges—produced weapons such as catapults and “ram tortoises,” battery rams mounted on protected carriers. The diversity of all these forces especially the coordination between infantry and horsemen was far beyond tactical capacity during their time. According to Parker, for more than twenty years (359-338) Phillip crafted a grand new army, supply, led, and organized quite differently from anything in past Greek practice. This was a unique military force that will eventually dominate the Greek city-states and later confronted the current superpower, the Persians. While the new face of the military is being forged, it is now being sustained and improved by logistical planning. According to Parker, soldiers during one summer campaign were ordered to carry thirty days’ provisions on his back. Well supplied soldiers with food, equipment, etc., is the only way to advance such a speedy conquest throughout the world. These bolster the long range of road marches that soldiers had to endure while fighting in multiple battles. The prolong Peloponnesian War severely weakened the Greek city-states. The vulnerability of the Greek city-states was the perfect timing for King Phillip to invade and conquer all of the Greek......

The List

...The List Story by 10/16/2013 I find myself on the ledge of a building with two of his thugs grabbing me. I think to myself how did I get here? Should I have done what I did? Is this the end? I should start from the beginning. I grew up in a wealthy house hold. My father was well known for breakthroughs in the technology field. He was working on many projects but the one that made him a multi-millionaire was the work in self-sustaining energy. When I was eighteen, my father and I went on a trip to China, a trip that would change our lives forever. It was a pretty quiet plane ride. Dad was working on his laptop and I was listening to music. I noticed there was a very bad storm out of the window. The plane was shaking. Suddenly the lights went out and the oxygen masks deployed. Something hit my head. The next thing I know we are in the water and my dad is yelling my name. I see him in the distance swimming towards me. He gets to me and gives me his life vest. He tells me that I have to survive, that his company isn’t what I thought it was. He gives me a book with a list of names and tells me that everyone on that list has done terrible things to stay rich, and that he is no different. He told me stories of how he and the people on this list got wealthy by stepping on the necks of the poor. That he has had people hurt or killed to keep his company on top. He stayed with me as long as he could but as time went by he got weaker. He couldn’t......

The Greeks

...Hail them who fought for glory and honour by the use of their bravery and intelligence that brought them to excellence. The movie Odyssey showed many Greek qualities perfectly. It also manifested and gave more colors and meanings to their mythology. The bravery of Odysseus mirrored how the Greeks stood for their own civilization. His intelligence manifested the Greek’s intelligence – their culture, their artworks and how they worked for their society’s growth were the products of this. Same as Odysseus, the Greeks loved their own society that they’re ready to sacrifice even their own lives. They had their very strong faith to their gods as their foundation in living. Greek’s unity leads them to excellence that no one could ever surpass. Odyssey tried to prove to their gods that he could achieve victory and honour without their help but he got it wrong. He then realized that without Poseidon, he can’t cross island from island; without Athena, he can never have his wisdom to conquer challenges; without Ionnus, he can’t have air to breath and so sail across oceans; wholly, without their gods, his life would never exist – the Greeks had this belief in their lives. They also can’t have their very well-known civilization without gods. Greeks had their unsurpassable love for their society as well as Odyssey. They had their lives that they’ve wanted and worked hard for. They accomplished many incomparable things and they became supreme in every artwork that had ever......

...INTRODUCTION TO PHILOSOPHY GREEK PHILOSOPHERS SOCRATES Socrates, perhaps the most famous of all philosophers, lived his entire life in Athens. Unlike Thales and other early thinkers, Socrates was more concerned with the health of the soul, than the nature of reality. Socrates spent his days in the streets of Athens, questioning people about their values. He termed himself a "gadfly" (horsefly) who ceasely irritated his fellow citizens into investigating their beliefs. Making many powerful enemies in the course of his life, Socrates was sentenced to death by the Athenian Assembly in 399 BC. One of Socrates' wonders is that he invented rigorous, ethical investigation. His conversations with his fellow Athenians, as recorded by Plato, are the first records we have of an individual, by his own careful reasoning, trying to discover the guiding principles of moral choices. METAPHYSICS Because Socrates always claimed that his only wisdom was that he knew nothing, it is difficult to determine his metaphysics, his view of reality. However, in some accounts of his conversations, like Plato’s EUTHYPHRO, we may catch glimpse of his beliefs. Socrates seemed to hold that individual entities, like holy actions, have universal characteristics, like Holiness, which can be discovered by the mind after careful investigation. This may mean that he anticipate Plato’s metaphysics that thee is higher, eternal world of truths (like Holiness) which exists independently of this......

Greek Crisis

...GREEK ECONOMIC CRISIS: CAUSES & EFFECTS Objective: To study the factors that lead to the Greek Economic Crisis and its effects on other other countries including India. A. IMPORTANCE Greece is normally known for mythology and coliseums, but for the past year, and probably well in to the future, Greece is making headlines for less mythical reasons. Greece has earned the reputation of being that family member who can't seem to get out of money trouble and, in turn, is always asking for a loan. Also, like that same family member, the chances of getting that money back isn't high. Greece is on the brink of bankruptcy and many economists believe that they are already bankrupt. Greece's debt has reached 160% of their gross domestic product. When debt reaches 100% of gross domestic product, it is cause for major concern. What's worse, they don't have the capacity to do much about it. Greece can't artificially change the buying power of their currency because they are part of the eurozone, and they can't easily raise taxes because they don't have an efficient or well-developed system of collecting taxes. If all of that isn't enough, the citizens of Greece are growing increasingly upset with their government, which is causing political turmoil as well as economic. Greece owes so much money to other countries that each citizen owes $40,000! 1. We Live in a Global World The world is no longer a collection of countries, many of which have little......

...start building in the 7th century BC. Historical meaning and its function The Parthenon is built on religious purpose while the Great Wall is built on military purpose. The former was dedicated to the goddess Athena Pallas or Parthenos (virgin). The Greeks had just defeated the Persians, and they were feeling very confident. They built the Parthenon to show their dominance and strength. The temple’s main function was to shelter the monumental statue of Athena. The key purpose of the Parthenon was to show their gratitude to Athena for helping them conquer the Persians. As for the Great Wall, it was to protect the Chinese against intrusions by various nomadic groups or military incursions. Other purposes of the Great Wall have included border controls, allowing the imposition of duties on goods transported along the Silk Road, regulation or encouragement of trade and the control of immigration and emigration. Symbolism The Parthenon is an enduring symbol of ancient Greece and of Athenian democracy, and is regarded as one of the world's greatest cultural monuments. The stunning appearance of the Parthenon and the use of precise calculation in architecture stems from the belief that perfection is so important since Greeks saw themselves as rising to the level of the gods and nearing perfection. The magnificent Great Wall marks the great wisdom of the ancient China. It has created one of the wonders of the world, the history of human civilization is also a monument.......

...3/13/2013 Humanities Dionysus, in Greek mythology is a god of wine and vegetation, who showed mortals how to cultivate grapevines and make wine. He was good and gentle to those who honored him, but he brought madness and destruction upon those who spurned him or the orgiastic rituals of his cult. The yearly rites in honor of the resurrection of Dionysus gradually evolved into the structured form of the Greek drama, and important festivals were held in honor of the god, during which great dramatic competitions were conducted. The most important festival, the greater Dionysia, was held in Athens for five days each spring. It was for this celebration that the Greek dramatists Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides wrote their great tragedies. Also, after the 5th century B.C. Dionysus was known to the Greeks as Bacchus. Dionysus is the son of Zeus and Semele. He is the only god to have a mortal parent. The birth of Dionysus began when Zeus came to Semele in the night, invisible felt only as a divine presence. Semele was pleased to be a lover of a god, even though she did not know which one. Word soon got around and Hera quickly assumed who was responsible. Hera went to Semele in disguise and convinced her that she should see her lover as he really was. When Zeus visited her again, she made him promise to grant her one wish. She went so far as to make him swear on the River Syx that he would grant her request. Zeus was madly in love and agreed. She then asked him to show her his......
