Background and the Rising:

William Butler Yeats was an Irish author, who participated in the Irish freedom´s movement. He is considered to be one of the most important authors of the seen victoria time. He studied poetry in both Dublin and London. Around 1916 the nationalism was widespread in Ireland, because England settled Ireland with dominance and made them to one of their many colonies. A lot of Yeats poetry was about the complicated present or uncertain future, as well as freedom form oppression and social division. We see in Yeats poetry “Easter, 1916” how he has captured the conflict of a nation with a social and political poem. It expresses Yeats’ feelings for the War of Irish Independence, through imagery, symbols and themes. – This should be a part of your analysis, as you are, in fact, analyzing.

In The Rising, the Irish people aim at creating a home rule parliament, as a kind of an even regime. I august 1914 the war begins, the nationalist leaders by Ireland, John Redmond and hos colleagues in the Irish party, encouraged their supports to follow them in the war of effort. A lot of people join, more than 200.000 and upon 50.000 lost their life, but in effort to challenge the British imperium’s regime in Ireland. On Easter Monday 1916, they capture buildings, and declared an independent Irish Republic. The rebels stood in 6 days before they surrendered to the British army, because they were considerably superior them. After the restlessness, the leaders of the Rising were executed and so on the “dark time” for Ireland came.

Easter, 1916:
The poem, Easter, 1916, starts in a traditional tone, “I have met them at close of day, Coming with vivid faces, From counter or desk among grey, Eighteenth-century houses.” It shows how Yeats, before their death, had known many of the ones that participated in the conflicts, the Rising. Yeats…...

...5 Things You May Not Know About Jesus and the Bible Next » Did you know … by Rob Kerby, Senior Editor     Here are five truths you probably don’t know about Jesus and the Bible!   1. The Old Testament is about Jesus. “Consider what Jesus Himself said about the Scriptures,” writes author Frank Viola. “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me!”“It is for this reason,” writes Viola “that statements such as ‘according to the prophets,’ ‘as it is written,’ ‘according to the Scriptures,’ ‘that the Scripture might be fulfilled,’ and ‘in all the Scriptures’” are peppered throughout the entire New Testament.   “What is more,” writes Viola, who prefers to use the terms First Testament and Second Testament for the Old and New Testaments, “the Second Testament authors consistently interpreted the First Testament writings in the light of Christ. Many believe that the Second Testament writers simply used parts of the First Testament as proof texts to show that Jesus of Nazareth was the promised Messiah of Israel and Lord of the world. But this is not the case. The Second Testament writers consistently quoted or cited large sections of the First Testament, using them to unfold the Jesus story.” 2. The New Testament authors used the sameOld Testament textsindependently of one another. “But that’s not all,” writes Viola in his book Jesus: A Theography from Thomas Nelson Publishers. “They interpreted them in exactly the...

Easter Island

...Rapa Nui, or Easter Island is a tiny speck of land secluded in the southeastern part of the Pacific Ocean. "Ancient voyaging from the central islands of eastern Polynesia would have normally gone against the prevailing trade winds, with the island forming only a small target, although westerly winds associated with periodic ENSO may have carried Polynesian colonists to the island (Anderson, Caveides and Walden, Finney)". Volcanoes constitute the three rims of Rapa Nui. In addition to the cones of three dominant volcanoes (Rano Kao, Poike, and Maunga Terevaka), Easter Island's landscape is also dotted with nearly 70 subsidiary cones. The most ancient stones are 500,000 year old alkali basalt/hawaiite lava flows constructing the Poike composite volcano at the island's eastern edge. Poike, which was formerly an island that eventually became joined to Terevaka by basalt flows emitted from Terevaka, has been seriously crumbled by the sea on each and every edge. The southwest flank of Rapa Nui was created by the Kao volcano. The Rano Kao lake inside the volcano's crater is one of Easter Island's only three pure chunks of crisp water. The water from the exceedingly submerged crater, which is approximately 3,000 feet in width, is carried to Easter Island's capital, Hanga Roa. The crater is roughly a mile in diameter and features a unique microclimate protected from winds. The lake has an abundance of climbing plants. The interior declivity was the spot of the most recent wild......

Analysis: Essays from "Leaders and Men of the Easter Rising"

...Analysis: Essays from "Leaders and Men of the Easter Rising" Leaders and Men of the Easter Rising is a compilation of essays that were originally part of the Thomas Davis lecture series broadcasted on Radio Telefis Eirann (Irish Public Radio) in 1965. The lectures have been edited for print by F.X. Martin, who also produced the original radio series. In the editor’s words, “The contributions are intended to cover as many aspects as possible of the events of Easter Week, 1916.” Martin considers his compilation “…the first attempt at a cool appraisal of the Easter Rising in the context of the Ireland of its time.” The essays are organized loosely by topic. The first few chapters review Ireland’s governmental structure of the time, how its current leaders came to be, and how their predecessors had ruled Ireland. It goes on to the members of parliament and their history, and then the remainder of the book details the movements of the men and their followers who started Ireland on the path to independence from England The essays do cover many aspects of the events leading up to the rebellion, so in that way the book accomplishes what it sets out to. However, the lectures do not convert well to print, and tend to be repetitive, making the timeline somewhat confusing. Also, since the lectures are meant for an Irish audience, some details are left unexplained. For example, the editor assumes I know what Radio Telefis Eirann is . . . I have to guess that it’s Irish Public......

Easter Island Research Paper

...EASTER ISLAND Stony sentry’s, carved years ago by Polynesian craftsmen, gaze over one of the most remote places in the world. With their land enlarged by overuse, islanders now draw on a revival of their culture to attract visitors. I intend to tell about this small island off the coast of Chile named Easter Island. Easter Island, submerged volcanic mountain range in the eastern Pacific Ocean, is located 500 miles South of the Tropic of Capricorn, and 2,200 miles West of Chile. This area is located were it is swept by strong trade winds. Because of his, the island remains warm through out the year. As you know, Easter Island is small. To be exact it has an area of 64 square miles about the size of Washington D.C. Easter Island’s population as grown a lot since diseases spread to most of the island in1877. Some of the remaining people left for South America, and the island was left 110 people. The population grew throughout the years in 1955 it was 990, in 1980 it was 1,842 and in 1989 it was 2,095. As many people have traditions, at parties and other celebrations, Easter Island has its own. They paint their bodies, the chant, they dance and the sing songs of their forbears. Each September, flocks of sooty terns come to nest on tiny islets about a mile off the shore. Since ancient times, there have been ceremonies to celebrate the birds’ arrival and to choose the birdman. The birdman competition is where each clan selected a representative to swim to the islets...

The PMBOK focuses on Earned Value Management for measuring and controlling a project’s costs. Earned Value Management is a broad and powerful tool; as such, we recommend that all project managers take some formal courses in Earned Value Management. In this section you should detail how you will measure the project costs. What Earned Value measurements will be captured and reported upon. Will you use any tools, such as project management software, to assist in capturing Earned Value metrics? How will you forecast future project costs? Will you review cost performance over time, across work packages or schedule activities? Our example in this section measures four Earned Value measurements; Schedule Variance (SV), Cost Variance (CV), Schedule Performance Index (SPI) and Cost Performance Index (CPI). For most typical projects these four measurements can provide enough insight for effective management without overburdening the Project Manager with Earned Value calculations and measurements. Schedule Variance (SV) is a measurement of the schedule performance for a project. It’s calculated by taking the Earned Value (EV) and subtracting the Planned Value (PV). Since EV is the actual value earned in the project and the PV is the value our project plan says we should have earned at this point, when we subtract what we planned from......

...Easter is major holiday in Poland, and Easter celebrations are not limited to Easter Sunday. Easter-related traditions take place for more than a week in Poland. From Palm Sunday to Wet Monday, this period is marked with religious rites and practices with their origins in pagan times. It is important to note that Easter in Poland is celebrated Western Roman Catholic calendar. Holy Week lasts from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. Palm Sunday, the week before Easter Sunday, is marked by church attendance with palm-leaf substitutes in the form of willow branches or handmade bouquets of dried flowers. On Easter Saturday, baskets of Easter food are taken to church to be blessed; the food that is blessed is eaten as a part of the Easter Sunday meal. The Easter breakfast consists of hard-boiled eggs, cold meats, babka and other dishes, including a cake in the form of a lamb to symbolize Christ. Pisanki are Easter eggs from Poland, handcrafted in traditional designs that recall pagan symbols of fertility and spring. While there is plenty to do in Poland before and after the Easter holidays, it is important for visitors to keep in mind that Easter and Easter Monday are holidays in Poland, which means that shops, banks, and some restaurants will be closed. Easter in Krakow is celebrated with a market and related events. The Beethoven Easter Festival in Warsaw and other cities is an annual program of classical music concerts that always takes place during Holy Week. Easter foods,......

Origin of Easter

...After all, it is one of the most important religious holidays of the year. Easter, right? No! This is a description of an ancient Babylonian family—2,000 years before Christ—honoring the resurrection of their god, Tammuz, who was brought back from the underworld by his mother/wife, Ishtar (after whom the festival was named). As Ishtar was actually pronounced “Easter” in most Semitic dialects, it could be said that the event portrayed here is, in a sense, Easter. Of course, the occasion could easily have been a Phrygian family honoring Attis and Cybele, or perhaps a Phoenician family worshipping Adonis and Astarte. Also fitting the description well would be a heretic Israelite family honoring the Canaanite Baal and Ashtoreth. Or this depiction could just as easily represent any number of other immoral, pagan fertility celebrations of death and resurrection—including the modern Easter celebration as it has come to us through the Anglo-Saxon fertility rites of the goddess Eostre or Ostara. These are all the same festivals, separated only by time and culture. If Easter is not found in the Bible, then where did it come from? The vast majority of ecclesiastical and secular historians agree that the name of Easter and the traditions surrounding it are deeply rooted in pagan religion. Now notice the following powerful quotes that demonstrate more about the true origin of how the modern Easter celebration got its name: “Since Bede the Venerable (De ratione temporum......

The Easter Rising

...The Easter Rising In Ireland 1916, there was an event known as The Easter Rising. The roots of the Rising lie in the ‘new nationalism’ which emerged in Ireland from the 1890s. Its most significant outcome was the rejuvenation of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB). This small, underground, revolutionary body planned and directed the insurrection in 1916. The truly dynamic element was a tiny minority within this organization; they were acting on the old republican principle: ‘England’s difficulty is Ireland’s opportunity’. In August 1915, this group formed the IRB Military Council. It was eventually composed of seven members – Thomas Clarke, Sean MacDermott, Patrick Pearse, Eamonn Ceannt, Joseph Plunkett, James Connolly, and Thomas MacDonagh. All seven approved and signed the Proclamation, and together they declared themselves to be the ‘Provisional Government’ of the Irish Republic when the Rising began. They were aided throughout by an Irish-American organization, Clan na Gael, which shared their aims and provided virtually the only channel of contact between the insurgents and Germany, from whom they hoped to receive military backing. The IRB was too small in number and covert in operation to precipitate a full-scale rising. For this purpose, it hoped to use the Irish Volunteer Force (IVF). This organization had been formed in 1913 by moderate nationalists, impressed by the impact of the Ulster Volunteer Force and frustrated by the delay in Britain......

Easter Sunday in United States

...------------------------------------------------- Easter Sunday in United States ------------------------------------------------- Easter Sunday is an important day in the Christian church calendar because it celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection, according to Christian belief. Many Christians celebrate Jesus Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday. The Easter date depends on the ecclesiastical approximation of the March equinox. ------------------------------------------------- What do people do? Many churches hold special services on Easter Sunday, which celebrate the Jesus Christ's resurrection after his crucifixion. Many people also decorate eggs. These can be hard boiled eggs that can be eaten later, but may also be model eggs made of plastic, chocolate, candy or other materials. It is also common to organize Easter egg hunts. Eggs of some form are hidden, supposedly by a rabbit or hare. People, especially children, then search for them. In some areas, Easter egg hunts are a popular way for local businesses to promote themselves or may even be organized by churches. Easter Sunday is not a federal holiday but a number of stores are closed in many parts of the US and if they are open, they may have limited trading hours. In some cities, public transit systems usually run their regular Sunday schedule, but it is best to check with the local transport authorities if any changes will be implemented during Easter Sunday.

How Far Do the Sources Suggest That the British Authorities Responded to the 1916 Easter Rising with Excessive Force?

...How far do the sources suggest that the British authorities responded to the 1916 Easter rising with excessive force? Source 1 portrays the view of George Bernard Shaw, through the form of a letter written to the Daily News within this he shows his dislike towards the British Government for not raising their ‘voice’ at the punishments handed to the leaders of the rising. He shows that he feels the force was excessive when explaining that the ‘Government shot first’ and ‘told the public second’ voicing his anger that they had no time to protest against the punishment that was to be handed to them. He further goes on to portray the force as excessive by explain that he believed them to be ‘prisoners of war’ and therefore he believed it was incorrect to slaughter them’ which further supports the view that it was an excessive use of force. This view although not entirely voiced is also supported in source 3. The Source however does not state that the use of force was excessive however implies it, ‘stating that Asquith went to Dublin to prevent further risings’. It is surprising that the source does not condemn the actions of the government as it quite clearly states that there was ‘bitterness’ surrounding it. Also considering the letter was sent by an Irish Nationalist MP, you would assume that his opinion on the matter would be outrage as the country they are fighting to break union with has murdered some of his own. Although they don’t come from the same party they share......

Easter Rising

...1 On Easter Monday, April 24, 1916, a group of Irish nationalists also known as the Easter Rebellion proclaimed the establishment of the Irish Republic and, along with 1,600 followers, staged a rebellion against the British government in Ireland. The rebels seized prominent buildings in Dublin and clashed with British troops. Within a week, the insurrection had been suppressed and over 450 people including civilians had died. The leaders of the rebellion soon were executed. Initially, there was little support from the Irish people for the Easter Rising; however, public opinion later shifted and the executed leaders were hailed as martyrs, as this brave act would lead the way towards Irish independence. In 1921, a treaty was signed that in 1922 established the Irish Free State, which eventually became the modern-day Republic of Ireland. 2 With the Act of Union in 1800, Ireland (which had been under some form of English control since the 12th century) merged with Great Britain to form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. As a result, Ireland lost its parliament in Dublin and was governed by a united parliament from Westminster in London. During the 19th century, groups of Irish nationalists opposed this arrangement in varying degrees. Some moderate nationalists advocated for home rule, under which Ireland would remain part of the United Kingdom but also have some form of self-government. Several home rule bills were defeated in Parliament in the late 1800s......

Microeconomic Theory on Easter Eggs

...1) The price and quantity of Easter eggs is established by bringing the concepts of both supply and demand together to see how the households differentiate in buying decisions and the selling of Easter eggs to achieve market equilibrium. Market equilibrium is the price at which the quantity supplied equals to the quantity demanded. In the hypothetical market model below, the equilibrium price meets at $3 and the quantity is 7,000 Easter eggs of the demand and supply curves. S4 S4 S2 S2 Copyright 2007 McGraw-Hill Australia Pty Ltd, PTs t/a Microeconomics 8e, by Jackson & McIver, By Muni Perumal, University of Canberra, Australia At equilibrium or market-clearing price, the position in which the market is cleared originates from the equilibrating process; there is neither a surplus nor is there a shortage in Easter eggs. At the current price at $3 and demand at 7,000, neither buyers (households) nor sellers can do business at a better price, as consumers pay the highest price they are willing to pay for the last unit bought, and producers receive the lowest price at which they are willing to supply the last unit sold. If supply decreased to S2 in the market model, at this point, the quantity of Easter eggs supplied is 4,000 eggs and the price would decrease to $2 each. As the price has decreased, consumers would want to purchase more at this price, which creates a change in quantity demanded but producers will not produce more eggs at......

The Devasation of Easter Island

...The Devastation of Easter Island Easter Island was a remote island in the French Polynesia covered by trees and considered a paradise by its inhabitants. It came to ruin by deforestation. Deforestation took place as a result of a combination of events. First, by building Moai, in honor of their gods, the Polynesians removed trees. The Moai weighed approximately 27-250 tons. Palm trees were also used to build seafaring boats to transport the Moai. Some of these trees were over one hundred feet in height were cut down for this very purpose. Secondly, the deforestation led to elimination of food supply. Since the trees were no longer available for protection of the soil and the tradewinds that were prevalent on the island gave way to more erosion it was impossible to grow crops. This eliminated part of the food chain. Also, since canoes could no longer be built the fisherman were limited to fishing along the coral reef. The porpoises, part of their main food supply, disappeared from this coast. They eventually over fished this area so that only small fish, without nutritional value, were available. Thus, this part of the food chain was eliminated. The elimination of the major parts of the food chain led to the practice of cannibalism, the third factor in the devastation of Easter Island. As the tribal warfare broke out, many sought refuge in the coastal caves that were hidden. The refugees waited in hopes that food would wash into their areas. If food did not then the......
