One of the less well known and appreciated genre’s of art was the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood’s style. The first The Pre-Raphaelites, like the Romantics, were great lovers of nature. They believed in showing things as they truly were. Many Romantics, and especially those that belonged to the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, did not agree with the classical beliefs being taught in art schools. These ideals required artists to beautify their subjects. For this reason many followers of this movement painted their landscapes outdoors and used real models4. They also composed their pictures with out any specific formula3. They chose not to use pyramidal constructions and other classical rules that were taught in many of the art schools. Instead of coming across as sloppy and rushed, many of their pictures appeared very realistic; as opposed to the classical compositions that were so formulaic they became boring and stiff. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was formed in 1848 by John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and William Holman Hunt2. They had all attended the Royal Academy of arts together and were trained in the classical style of painting5. This style was very routine and repetitive. The three founders wanted to do something more original, something not identical to the late painter Raphael. The origin of their organization's name stemmed from their ambition to get away from the purely Raphaelesque paintings of the day4. Unfortunately, the art critics and general public of England were not looking for originality or a new style of art. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood's paintings generally received criticism and unintentionally caused many controversies. A main and continuing dispute involved the way the member's signed their paintings. They all simply signed them "PRB," instead of using their own individual signatures3. The Brotherhood's style of…...

Anti Fed

...equally in the House, regardless of the state in which they lived—unlike the Articles of Confederation, according to which the Continental Congress equally represented the states. In other words, the proposed Constitution would make the United States a nation of one people rather than a loose confederation of states. The proposed Constitution, and the change it wrought in the nature of the American Union, spawned one of the greatest political debates of all time. In addition to the state ratifying conventions, the debates also took the form of a public conversation, mostly through newspaper editorials, with Anti-federalists on one side objecting to the Constitution, and Federalists on the other supporting it. Writers from both sides tried to persuade the public that precious liberty and self-government, hard-earned during the late Revolution, were at stake in the question. Anti-federalists such as the Federal Farmer, Centinel, and Brutus argued that the new Constitution would eventually lead to the dissolution of the state governments, the consolidation of the Union into “one great republic” under an unchecked national government, and as a result the loss of free, self-government. Brutus especially believed that in such an extensive and diverse nation, nothing short of despotism “could bind so great a country under one government.” Federalists such as James Madison (writing as Publius) countered that it was precisely a large nation, in conjunction with a......

Anti Federalism

...where the sates are supreme makes is more beneficial to the people; having a strong central government however, leaves room for domination and control. The federalist supported the constitution and wanted a strong central government. As an anti-federalist the main focus of interest is the protecting the people's rights and limiting government control. Federalist supported the constitution, and wanted immediate ratification. They favored limiting state power, and believed that a strong central government was needed to protect the country. The Federalist's response to the anti-Federalist claim that a Bill of Rights should be introduced was that it would be dangerous. If a right was not listed, what was stopping the government from violating that law? The Federalist figured it would be best if no specific law was listed. Anti-Federalists did not want to ratify the constitution. Most Anti-Federalists believed that a somewhat stronger central government was needed, but for the most part favored a federal system where the states were supreme. Anti-Federalists did not want to ratify the constitution because there was no bill of rights, they wanted the rights of the people to be documented, and limit government power to some degree. The anti-federalist also believed that congress and the executive branch held too much power, and they feared that people of wealth would have the opportunity to obtain more power than the government itself. The Federalist papers contained many......

Current Economic Outlook Positive signs, but beware! Manufacturing is expanding at its fastest past in 2 ½ years, but will that translate into economic growth and new jobs? The unemployment rate is at its lowest since December 2008. Good news? Not really, the details to the latest payroll report are not pretty. October 1 ISM Manufacturing Index What the ISM indicates Monitoring the ISM Manufacturing Index allows us to understand the current economic conditions. Financial Markets are extremely sensitive to this index. Stock markets should increase when the index increases because of higher corporate profits. In bond markets the opposite usually occurs, due to the sensitivity of potential inflation. ISM also measures the degree of change across manufacturing, and is an indicator of GDP Growth. Current vs Expected The ISM showed that its Manufacturing Index grew for the 52nd consecutive month as the PMI came in stronger than expected at 56.2% in September, versus a Bloomberg consensus estimate of 55.0%. That shows an increase from 55.7% in August and the fourth straight increase in the index. A reading above 50% indicates growth.

"Wrong Ism" Narative

...In Priestley's "Wrong Ism", he claims that nationalism is not the strength that binds a country together, but rather all of the small local areas we are all accustomed to growing up in that gives us strength. Priestley considers nationalistic ideas and movements to be headed by people who have a love of power and who have left out their regional ties. They no longer have feelings for the areas they came from and any loyalty developed over their lifetime is watered down. Priestley feels regionalism needs to be given more credit. He assumes it provides us with roots and a sense of attachment to our community which affect people's lives in such a way that it creates a unique bond that can be very hard to break. So in a sense, regionalism shapes our identities and I agree with his assumption that people view themselves more as part of their region rather than a part of their nation. Loyalty to one's region can be compromised when individuals allow national power and greed to destroy their roots. There are many examples of how nationalism tries to take over a region to destroy its people. For instance genocide, in nearly all examples, has been started by a power-hungry national figure who has an agenda in mind that never takes into account what a local area's wish might be for their future. Hitler is an example of this type of authoritarian oppressor who had a very complex national strategy in place to exterminate the Jews. He certainly did not consider or recognize regional......

Anti-Globalization

...Anti- globalization The global movement is broadly critical of the policies of economic neoliberalism, or “corporate globalization,” that has guided international trade and development since the closing decades of the 20th century. Varied communities organizing against the local and national consequences of neoliberal policies, especially in the global South, connect their actions with this wider effort. * Industries have no respect for the environment. Large companies install their factories in third world countries, where environment legislation is more lax or almost nonexistent, they don’t only endangered, irreversibly, the biodiversity of the planet but also the native populations. * Massive inflows of foreign investment in developing countries cannot be effectively absorbed, especially in regard to environmental protection and workers' rights. This is because developing countries standards and enforcement mechanisms are not as well established. * Workers are seen as having their traditional lives irreversibly disrupted by globalization and/or being treated less favorably than the same multinationals would treat those in developed countries. In this instance, it is often recognized that local political sovereignty may not be enough; global rules are needed to ensure that multinationals can't exploit workers. * Countries' individual cultures are becoming overpowered by Americanisation. Several of the largest US brands (McDonald's and Starbucks) face......

Anti-Communism and Mccarthyism Paper

...events, a more detailed look into history is needed to explain how this controversy and cultural phenomenon came to be. Understanding the Differences Is there a difference between anti-communism and McCarthyism? Despite the common belief that these two terms have the same meaning, there are indeed fundamental differences. Anti-communism can be understood as a set of beliefs, social values, or political opinions that a communist form of government is unacceptable and wrong. McCarthyism, on the other hand, was suspicious and it unfairly accused American citizens of being a communist. Lead by and named affectionately after Senator Joseph McCarthy, McCarthyism and its accusations violated American civil rights, destroyed reputations, caused employers to "blacklist" and created an era of distrust in the United States well into the late 1950's. Media Perspectives The term McCarthyism was coined by Herbert Block who first displayed it in a Washington Post cartoon, March 29, 1950. On June 18, 1950, the New York Times reported, “McCarthy, even allowing for the old fact that charges run a faster race than denials, has shown an unexpected tactical skill in keeping ahead of his antagonists in publicity, and thus in the public eye.” The media’s perspective toward Joseph McCarthy and his consequent “ism” often discredited the validity of his extreme views; the popular media of the day responded to McCarthyism disagreeably if not in out right opposition. Some media sources even......

Anti-Intellectualism

...Social Media’s Effects on Literacy and Anti-Intellectualism In 2013, thirty-two million adults in the United States did not know how to read and write, which comes to about 14 percent of adults. Twenty-one percent of adults in the United States can only read at a fifth grade level. 774 million adults in the world cannot read or write. Many adults do not know how to read and write because they did not complete high school for any number of reasons. These reasons could include being forced to stay home and work or go out and get a job to support a family; the schools may not educate past the fifth or eighth grade level; bad home life; sickness; or a family crisis. Technology and social media have aided in decreasing the rates of literacy and increasing the amount of anti-intellectualism in the United States. Social media and technology have also helped some people to learn to read and write in some cases. According to Cynthia L. Selfe in Technology and literacy in the twenty-first century: the importance of paying attention, “the access and use of technology in school-based settings is now a fundamental skill of literacy, and if such skills do help prepare graduates for the jobs they will be asked to do, these same students can expect fewer opportunities to assume high-tech and high-paying jobs, not more.”(136) However, social media and technology have increased the amount of anti-intellectualism in the places where it is used. Anti-intellectualism is the opposition to......

Anti-Federalist

...By: Normandie Lovince I am a supporter of the anti-federalist party. The anti-federalist took some of the ideas that the federalist had into consideration. Instead of abolishing or ignoring these ideas, they wanted to improve them. The anti-federalist and the federalist share two very opposing views. As you read this essay, you will gradually start to see just how my ideas are being supported as to why I've chosen to become an anti-federalist. The anti-federalist party was the first out of two political parties of the U.S. This party was led by Henry, George Mason and Samuel Adams alongside Richard Henry Lee who wanted the president and the senate to have the entire executive and 2/3 of the legislative power. As an anti-federalist, I believe that the constitution should not be ratified. I feel like the best way, that the U.S citizens should be protected is by being kept safe from the Government and the bill of rights will do that because of the freedom and liberty that it gives us. "The greatest importance for Freemen to retain themselves are the liberties given to us in the bill of rights", which is why it's so important that we'd add it to the constitution. In order to get the bill of rights to be in the constitution we'd need to sacrifice part of our natural rights, for the good of others around us. The anti-federalist believed that the constitution should have a bill of rights. The Anti-federalist opposed the constitution, while the federalist themselves......

Ism Model for Analyses

...(2013) Res. J. Management Sci. Interpretive Structural Modelling (ISM) approach: An Overview Rajesh Attri1, Nikhil Dev1 and Vivek Sharma2 2 Department of Mechanical Engineering, YMCA University of Science and Technology, Faridabad, INDIA Department of Mechanical Engineering, Advanced Institute of Technology and Management, Palwal, INDIA 1 Available online at: www.isca.in Received 27th November 2012, revised 27th January 2013, accepted 1st February 2013 Abstract Interpretive structural modelling (ISM) is a well-established methodology for identifying relationships among specific items, which define a problem or an issue. This approach has been increasingly used by various researchers to represent the interrelationships among various elements related to the issue. ISM approach starts with an identification of variables, which are relevant to the problem or issue. Then a contextually relevant subordinate relation is chosen. Having decided the contextual relation, a structural self-interaction matrix (SSIM) is developed based on pairwise comparison of variables. After this, SSIM is converted into a reachability matrix (RM) and its transitivity is checked. Once transitivity embedding is complete, a matrix model is obtained. Then, the partitioning of the elements and an extraction of the structural model called ISM is derived. In this paper, key concept of ISM approach is discussed in detail. Keywords: ISM, SSIM, RM, variable, modelling. Introduction It is......

Anti Bias

...Early childhood children can identify different color, language, gender, and physical. Children watch the how people are different and yet the same. They understand their native language and recognizes the differences of another language. An anti-bias curriculum help children to embrace as teachers nurture the development of each child’s ability respect issues of diversity and be fear in the classroom. Teachers can create an Anti-bias classroom and the classroom environment should be Multicultural friendly that implement the education which have an active approach to challenge all prejudices, stereotypes or bias. In my opinion an Anti-Bias education is relevant because it reflects on education as a whole that is not based on if people are comfortable with the topics. Educators should have a specific goal for children and give them a clear cut educational experience. It explains how teachers should allow children to talk about what is going on in their world. Even in preschool children are expose to racism and prejudice, by implementing an Anti-bias curriculum children will have an opportunity to defect discrimination. For example, a child told another child that she do not want to play with her because the other child hair wasn’t done. This situation needed to be address right away because you would not want the any child to feel bad about him or herself, because the other children do not want to play with them. Perception by children that they are not good because of......

Ism Code Influences Maritme Risk

...2. How has the ISM Code influenced maritime risk management/managers? The ISM Code was a reactive response to maritime disasters, particularly the Herald of Free Enterprise. This instrument is a regulatory device which prescribes uniform principles and rules to be applied worldwide pertaining to safety at sea. The ISM Code is incorporated within Chapter IX of SOLAS and introduces a safety orientated concept known as safety culture. The main objective of the ISM Code is to administer safe practices in ship operation within a system of reporting and audits; also, prepare for emergencies that relate to safety and environmental protection. Section 10 of the ISM Code (Maintenance of the Ship and Equipment) requires that companies establish procedures in the Safety Management System (SMS) to hold inspections of equipment and technical systems at various intervals. Pursuant to sections 1.2.2(.2) and 2.2.1(.2) of the ISM Code, maritime risk managers are subject to the construction of various risk assessments. The ISM Code has created a bureaucratic labyrinth for maritime risk management (MRM)/managers, which is laced in a plethora of written procedures and instructions for numerous onboard operations. These consist of routine activities which include cargo operations, navigation, and other repair activities such as dry-docking. Bhattacharya (2009) explains that risk assessment was recognized as the key characteristic of the SMS following a comprehensive study of......

Anti-Bullying

...bullied every single day in the United States and sometimes, it cannot be stopped effectively. Bullies are everywhere. They are in offices, at home, in the neighborhood, and many other places. It is a huge problem in schools as well. Many schools in the country have anti-bullying policies. These policies are all different and are implemented in different ways. Most of these policies are not effective though. Anti-bullying policies are not effective against all bullying because school bullying and its effects are still seen, because of the growing use of technology, and because of family influences. Anti-bullying policies are not effective because school bullying cases are still frequently happening in schools. Bullying is a major problem in the world today and it can be seen almost everywhere and it happens every day to people. It most commonly occurs in schools though. Many schools have adopted policies that they use to help prevent bullying in their establishment. However, these policies are not always effective. A study by a University of Texas in Arlington found that students at a school that had an anti-bullying policy, “were 1.2 times more likely” to be bullied than students who attended a school without an anti-bullying policy (Antoniades, pg. 1). This confirms the fact that these policies are not always effective. A school that does have a policy actually is more likely to have bullying. A student is often challenged to bully because they see that they can’t and that......

Anti-Vaccination

...Professor Perez ENGL102 8 November 2015 The Anti-Vaccination Movement Over the last 30 years, the number of vaccine-preventable diseases has increased substantially. This is due to a rising number of “anti-vaxxers” spreading misinformation “that vaccines are actually ineffective, useless, or even dangerous” (Kata 3778). The internet and other forms of mass media have steered parents to believe these claims and it has had devastating results. It has been proven by scientists for hundreds of years that the use of vaccinations greatly outweighs the risk of not getting them. The research shows that the claim that vaccines cause autism or any other disease cannot be substantiated by any scientific evidence and therefore, should not be entertained under any circumstances. The background of the anti-vaccination movement is an old one. The United Kingdom’s Vaccination Act of 1853 is a good example of this. The act required parents to vaccinate their children for small pox at three months or risk life in prison. This is a harsh punishment for the parents, but considering the millions of deaths that small pox has caused world-wide, lawmakers at the time considered it a just penalty. “The anti-vaccination movement experienced a steady decline from the turn of the century up to the 1970's” (Kasarda 548). After the 1970’s there was a resurgence in the anti-vaccination movement. This is due to research from a group of authors working at London Hospital. “M. Kulenkampf, J.S.......
