Otto 1, Emperor: Grant of a Market at Bremen, 965
Otto 1 the Great was considered to be a ruler very similar to Charlemagne. He followed Charlemagne’s legacy of becoming a Roman emperor, he was crowned emperor by the Pope. He remained in control by appointing family members to duchies which brought their subjects under his authority. Otto forced the dukes to recognize his lordship and dominance over them. The places that he could not bring under his control, he conquered. Otto I made important reforms which resulted in the bringing together of the state and church. Following these reforms, Otto I brought a more centralized power to himself and strengthened his own right to rule.
For Adaldagus to establish a market in Bremen, it was very important to have the approval and support of Otto the Great. Successful approval by Otto Emperor Augustus came with several benefits. Otto would benefit by being in charge of the local operations and administering the commerce activities in that area. He would have local authority, rights and protection for himself and the local merchants in the name of Otto Emperor Augustus over the marketplace. This would also have included collecting fees and in general making him the locally appointed boss over the marketplace. Otto Emperor Augustus would also benefit by having an appointed leader in place in the market of Bremen to carry out his orders.
Additionally, this petition request and approval was accepted as the "religious right thing to do" and would bring blessings and rewards from God. Often people would try to buy their way into heaven by giving in to the Christian religion. Becoming a Christian meant eternal reward, which was to get into the afterlife. Otto’s power was strengthened through the close alliance between the church and the state and it improved the empire.…...

...“ecotourism” appear to restrict the capacity for indigenous Australians to participate in accredited ecotourism. This indicates a need for the development of a new definition of ecotourism. Furthermore, the specific and narrow criteria of the NEAP may be too restrictive to encompass the market- and export-ready indigenous tourism product as identified in the National Indigenous Tourism Product Manual. The accommodation of consumptive behaviour under the ecotourism label would require a substantial shift in thinking from accreditation bodies as well as ecotourism consumers. There is no doubt that a number of ecotourism consumers would find it very difficult to accept the harvesting of certain species, and this situation would have to be handled with great care and sensitivity. Additionally, the burning of bush-land, which is common in indigenous land management (Latz, 1995; Rose, 1995), may cause distress and confusion amongst ecotourists. Clearly, differences between indigenous people and ecotourists may result in frustration for both groups (Hinch, 1998). In order to reduce frustration, there would need to be a substantial educational component to such experiences before, during and after the activity, for example, educating tourists as to the importance of Aboriginal mosaic burning techniques to plant reproduction and securing optimum food production (Latz, 1995). As well as alleviating the concerns of ecotourists and promoting cultural awareness, such educational activity would......

Otto Dix

...Otto Dix He was the great German Expressionist, was famous for his unique and grotesque style. Dix always balanced his inclination toward realism with an equal tendency toward the fantastic and the allegorical. Having experimented with Expressionism, Futurism and even Dada, Dix finally opted for a realist language that allowed him to present a critical view of the society that surrounded him and which led him to become one of the leading representatives of New Objectivity. His profound knowledge and admiration for the Old Masters, particularly the German Renaissance painters, led him to base his new style on a technique that revived their working methods. This included the use of panel rather than canvas as a support and a mixed technique of tempera and oil; his painstaking preparation of the support; his way of using the pigments and glazes, and even his signature in the form of a monogram in the manner of Lucas Cranach. These technical resources also provided him with a way to emphasize form over color and to convey the critical objectivity that he desired, accentuating the realism of his style and endowing it with the critical, ironic and mordant tone that is so typical of his work. Dix’s revival of old techniques and styles, combined with this “return to order” on the part of a realist artist in opposition to the language of the contemporary avant-garde movements, was accompanied in his by an interest in rediscovering signs of national identity,......

The Great War

...America and the Great War Jerry Bryant Devry University United States History Morgan Deane June 23, 2013 The nineteenth and twentieth centuries were a time of colonization of Asia and Africa by European powers. England was in control of most of Africa and India; the Belgians controlled Congo; Germany, France, and Italy also inhabited African lands. These colonies were responsible for the economical statues and even the foreign business of European products, and therefore expansion became necessary. To add to the fire, land available was quickly sought after due to Germany, France, England, Italy, and Belgium occupying most. Border disputes broke out between colonists of different nationalities; the Boer War in South Africa between the Dutch and the English and the Middle East, the crumbling Ottoman Empire was tempt to Austria-Hungary, the Balkans and Russia. Germany set an example in military organization and efficiency; Europe was similar with large reserves and detailed planning of the Prussian system. Technological and organizational developments led to general staffs with accurate plans for mobilization and attacks that could not be reversed. The German von Schlieffen Plan was to attack with Russia which drew more countries into war than France before Russia. By 1889, the British had a new principle; in order to maintain naval superiority in the event of war, they would have to have a navy two and a half times as large as the second-largest navy; which......

Otto Advertising

...Otto Advertising has recently signed on Angela’s Secret Lingerie, a new client that represents a very large account for the company. Although we feel very confident in our abilities to market and influence consumers into buying their lingerie, this client places our company in a difficult situation. They are requesting we direct our advertising towards girls aged 8-10 years old which raises grave ethical concerns. Marketing can lead to ethical dilemmas due to the content and methodology used to pursue market growth and revenue. Many techniques that we ourselves have utilized have included heavily targeting the youth because of their susceptibility to marketing tactics. Targeting children is treading in dangerous waters and can have negative repercussions on all parties involved. Ethical theories represent important guidelines for better, more sustainable decision making. I have provided an analysis through the Utilitarian, Kantian and Virtue Ethics perspectives in order for Otto Advertising to make a sound decision for all parties affected. Utilitarian ethics is associated with Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill and represents the utilitarian principle to provide the greatest good for the greatest number of people. This is to be followed by looking at the consequences of an action not the means employed to deem if it is morally right or not (ET 85-88). Marketing is essentially based on the utilitarian principle because our whole purpose as a business is to try and......

...Great Barrier Reef loses half its coral in less than 30 years The Great Barrier Reef has lost half of its coral cover in the last 27 years, according to a new study released today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Based on over 2,000 surveys from 1985 to this year the study links the alarming loss to three impacts: tropical cyclone damage, outbreaks crown-of-thorns starfish that devour corals, and coral bleaching. "We can't stop the storms, and ocean warming (the primary cause of coral bleaching) is one of the critical impacts of the global climate change. However, we can act to reduce the impact of crown of thorns," says John Gunn, the head of the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), which conducted the research. Crown-of-thorns starfish (Acanthaster planci), the world's second largest seastar and a renowned predator of coral, have seen several outbreaks in the Great Barrier Reef during the past few decades. Outbreaks of the coral-chomping invertebrates are believed to have increased from one every 50-80 years to one every 15 years, which scientists have linked in part to fertilizer and chemical runoff from the mainland. In total, the researchers found that 42 percent of coral loss could be linked the crown-of-thorns outbreaks, 48 percent to tropical cyclones, and 10 percent to coral bleaching. The annual loss of coral cover has sped up as well, averaging 1.45 percent annually since 2006. This pummeling, occurring too quickly......

Interpretation of War by Otto Dix

...Dix, Otto. The War. 1929-1932. Staatliche Kunstsammlungen, Gemaldegalerie Neue Meiste, Dresden. A Graphic Narrative Interpreted The piece the war by Otto Dix creates an ominous depiction of what a war may look like. Divided into four different pictures, the painting creates a narrative about war. Beginning with an image that displays soldiers going off to war, then the combat area, a mass coffin, and ending with a ghostly figure reaping the battle ground. From the images provided the viewer can interpret that war is very gruesome and negative. At a first glance the viewer is drawn to the center of the painting, as their eyes move around, they begin to decipher the painting and the heaviness of the painting is felt. The grim war zone overwhelms the viewer and displays an aftermath of evil. Otto Dix effects the reader with confusion through a variety of chaos inducing techniques, and ultimately shares his opinions on war. The narrative begins with an image that displays pre-war activities. The battle has not begun yet and the soldiers do not know what to expect. The first panel displays what looks like a group of soldiers hiking off to war. In the left portion of the painting there are soldiers rising out of the fog, the viewer can only see every thing above the soldiers’ shoulders’. They sky is filled with various types of clouds, and red, almost orange tints. In the corner, there is a small piece of dark sky filled with stars. The soldiers are ready for battle with......

The Great

...Some employers may have a few ideas on how to improve the company, but unless they’re brought in to share their thoughts, they may never have a chance to express themselves. It also let employers know you value their opinions. By helping the employers understand that the business needs and values them is important for building a strong working relationship. Employees should be involved in most decision making but some are better left to management. I knew of a guy that worked at a previous job. He was at that job for over 5 years. He knew how to work and run every department. An assistant position came available and everyone thought he would be perfect for the position, because he had more knowledge of the different areas and he was great at his job. He always wore a smile and greeting everyone. The customers loved him. He interviewed for the position, but he didn’t get it, because of sex-based discrimination. He was gay, but I don’t agree that he should have not got the position due to his sexual belief. A girl out of another department got the job and had to do a full 2 weeks of training and still was slow catching on. She eventually got fired and he quit. If I was manager, I would have given him the position....

...When the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect in 1994, the treaty specified that by 2000 trucks from each nation would be allowed to cross each other's borders and deliver goods to their ultimate destination. The argument was that such a policy would lead to great efficiencies. Before NAFTA, Mexican trucks stopped at the border, and goods had to be unloaded and reloaded onto American trucks, a process that took time and cost money. It was also argued that greater competition from Mexican trucking firms would lower the price of road transportation within NAFTA. Given that two-thirds of cross-border trade within NAFTA goes by road, supporters argued that the savings could be significant. This provision was vigorously opposed by the Teamsters union in the United States, which represents truck drivers. The union argued that Mexican truck drivers had poor safety records, and that Mexican trucks did not adhere to the strict safety and environmental standards of the United States. To quote James Hoffa, the president of the Teamsters: Mexican trucks are older, dirtier, and more dangerous than American trucks. American truck drivers are taken off the road if they commit a serious traffic violation in their personal vehicle. That's not so in Mexico. Limits on the hours a driver can spend behind the wheel are ignored in Mexico. Under pressure from the Teamsters, the United States dragged its feet on implementation of the......

Great Flood

...The Great Flood Everyone has a place where they grew up, where they spent most of their life. Most people call it their hometown. Specifically, the hometown I’m talking about is Fulton, Illinois. Every hometown has a different story of how the town got to where it is today because every town started somewhere. This town started like any normal town, but flooding nearly destroyed it. Families were broken up and separated by the flooding. This brought the town together to build a stronger foundation. A “mountain” had to be built to stop flooding from occurring again. A flood can truly bring out a town’s heritage. This story depicts a series of pictures of what a few struggles can really do to a town and bring out the best from it. Looking at the first photograph, the audience gets a sense that it’s a body of water. This river is the Mississippi River and it separates Illinois and Iowa. Another name for the river is the Big Muddy. It is the largest river in North America. It flows from Minnesota all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. The Mississippi is 2,340 miles from top to the bottom and is truly one of the nation’s most important assets ("Fun Facts - Experience Mississippi River."). It is a dominant feature in the Midwest. It has the fourth largest drainage watershed in the world. The river has a long history as well, and it has touched the lives of many people. The Mississippi River has many uses and purposes like boating and tubing as well as industrial reasons such as,...

... Successes of the First Great Awakening In the 1730’s and 1740’s the British American Colonies embarked on a revitalized religious piety called “The Great Awakening” which had a plethora of positive effects that strengthened the colonies at that present time and has remnants today in modern day America. Two extremely brilliant pastors by the names of Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield operating as separate entities led a mission through British America exhorting colonists to repent of sins! “As The Great Awakening” begins to ignite, these two pastors will have made footprints in America that will shape the way of Christianity forever. Jonathan Edwards was known for having one of the deepest theological minds ever. He proclaimed a burning desire for righteousness, and depending whole heartedly on God’s saving and loving grace. Preaching boldly with much conviction! On the contrary George Whitefield was effective! But, had a different preaching style. Four years into “The Great Awakening” English parson George Whitefield appeared on the scene, he was a great orator, spiritually led his voice boomed and was able to reach the masses. How did these two pastors Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield effect America? What evolved from “The Great Awakening?” We are going to dissect “The Great Awakening” by following events that led to spiritual success for British America after returning to a sound walk with God.

Otto Von Bismarck

...background: When born/died, basic life overview, personality). -My guided leader is Otto Von Bismarck (1815-1898). Otto Von Bismarck was conservative Prussian statesman, and was later the Prime Minister of Prussia, appointed by King Wilhelm I. He dominated German and European affairs from the 1860s until 1890. Early on in his political career, promised to promulgate a constitution, agreed that Prussia and other German states should merge into a single nation-state in 1848. In 1849, he opposed the unification of Germany, arguing that Prussia would lose its independence in the process. He grew up representing the land-owning nobility.

Perform an analysis of the social/demographic, technological, economic, environmental/geographic, and political/legal/governmental segments to understand the general environment facing Great Lakes. Describe how Great Lakes will be affected by each of these external factors. Corporate social responsibility is defined as a business’s concern for society’s welfare (Lambi, Hair & McDaniel, 2011). Corporations want to become more sustainable and remain sustainable by allowing management to focus on both long-range best interests of the company and the relationship to the society it operates in (Lambi, Hair & McDaniel, 2011). In the case of Great Lakes, the division manager Ellie Shannon was faced with making the recommendation to the company’s board of directors on which of three policy options she felt the company should pursue (Hitt, Hoskisson & Ireland, 2011). The pyramid of corporate social responsibility is an excellent standard to measure the outcome. Great Lakes, according to text is in an excellent position economically to “wash its hands of the leaded gasoline business and its repercussions” (Hitt, Hoskisson & Ireland, 2011).
