  • Global Branding - 1,519 words
    Global Branding When corporations market a product globally choosing a brand name is a major factor in the success of that product. Handi-Wrap is a very well known brand in the United States, but in other parts of the world like the United Kingdom and Australia, the brand's name is considered funny but still effective, but what about in other countries like: Germany, Sweden or Japan?

  • In Favor Of Capital Punishment - 887 words
    In Favor of Capital Punishment I believe that the death penalty is the best and fairest punishment for people who have taken other peoples lives. Here are some interesting facts about the death penalty. Did you know that 70% of all Americans support the death penalty? Murder rates have also been down since the death penalty was reinforced. And rehab techniques are so underdeveloped that no one is ever certain that a murderer can be rehabilitated (supporting capital). First of all, if someone has taken someone elses life, in most cases their life should be taken also. If a person is so imcompassionate for human beings and just doesnt care what happens to anyone; if they are sick enough to tak ...

  • Cubism - 1,057 words
    Cubism Before the twentieth century, art was recognized as an imitation of nature. Paintings and portraits were made to look as realistic and three-dimensional as possible, as if seen through a window. Artists were painting in a flamboyant style. French postimpressionist Paul Czannes flattened still lives, and African sculptures gained in popularity in Western Europe when artists went looking for a new way of showing their ideas and expressing their views. In 1907 Pablo Picasso created the painting Les Damsoilles dAvignon, depicting five women whose bodies are constructed of geometric shapes and heads of African masks rather then faces. This new image grew to be known as cubism. The name ori ...

    Mans Journey into Self in Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now English Mans Journey into Self in Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now Hu240 Inherent inside every human soul is a savage evil side that remains repressed by society. Often this evil side breaks out during times of isolation from our culture, and whenever one culture confronts another. History is loaded with examples of atrocities that have occurred when one culture comes into contact with another. Whenever fundamentally different cultures meet, there is often a fear of contamination and loss of self that leads us to discover more about our true selves, often causing perceived madness by those who have yet to discover.

  • Theater - 507 words
    Theater Theater Greek Theater Although theaters developed in many parts of Greece, it was in Athens, where the most dramatic styles the world has known was formed. Ancient Greek theaters were built in natural open air sites on conveniently shaped hills. This allowed a great mass of people to enjoy a show at one time(The Ephesus could hold 56,000 people) Unlike later dramas, which could be endlessly duplicated, Greek manuscripts existed as a single, fragile piece. Many of them have been destroyed over time, and the few that have survived are treasured, and said to be priceless. Due to the immense size of the audience, actors placed emphasis on exaggerated action and speech. And, colourful sym ...

  • Mate Preference - 960 words
    Mate Preference His main area of study has been human desires, what people want when they are looking for a husband or wife. To research this, he surveyed over ten thousand people in thirty-seven cultures on six continents. What his findings show is that men tend to choose mates more on physical attractiveness and youth. While women seek men with more financial power. Now this may come as no surprise to us in America, because men here have always wanted women who were more physically attractive, and women have always wanted to marry a rich man, like a doctor or a lawyer.
