GOOD WIVES
Image and Reality in the Lives of Women in Northern New England
1650 – 1750

Good Wives sheds an illuminating light on the lives of early American women in New England. According to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, men used women both positively and negatively. From my understanding of the book “Good Wives” there were more negative then positive ways of how men used women between 1650 and 1750 in Northern New England. The true test of this book was based on the fact that their were no female diaries on record to date written until 1750; so doing a true evaluation on facts of the time required use of many different resources other than written materials. In my opinion, most of this book may be facts but a true portion of it is hearsay; however, Ulrich did write two other books on tops similar to this one so she has a reputation for being very knowledgeable on this subject. The one and only positive way men (husbands) used women (wives) were as Deputy Husbands. A Deputy Husband would stand in the place of her husband in his absence or if he were unable to perform his duties. “Some wives were servile, some were shrews, others were respected companions who shared the authority of their spouses in the management of family affairs” (p. 38). In performing her husband’s duties, a wife not only gained the respect of her husband, but she also gained his trust as well. As a consort (“a consort tuned her life to her mate’s” (p. 9)), a wife who harmonized with her husband had spirituality and sexuality but one who did not brought unrest and sometimes wound up in the courts due to their actions. Husbands respected their wives’ domain as the center or the heart of the farm and the family, whereas, the wives were expected to respect the husband’s authority and manly duties. Another negative way men used women was for the purposes of procreation. But if…...

...mentor who fails a student will inevitably be scrutinised by the examination board and therefore an accurate, clear and well-evidenced report is essential. Support from lecturing staff who are familiar with the process of writing up the clinical assessment was seen as vital by participants in the study in order that a ‘watertight’ report could be written. Another way in which lecturers provided support was being present at the final meeting of the mentor and the student. It was evident from participants in the study that this tripartite arrangement was not established in each programme. Where procedure indicated that the lecturer be present at the final assessment this was seen as supportive, as this mentor points out: ‘But the tutor was quite good, coming in as well, you know… I just remember feeling very uncomfortable and as I say, it was nice to have some support’. (Participant 4M) Not all universities appeared to have protocols that included the link lecturer’s presence at the final assessment, as one of the lecturer’s comments: ‘…if it’s a fail, and there’s very few I’ve got to say, then we would expect to be aware previously and I would expect each link person to go out for the final assessment. But, we haven't got a, got anything written that that’s the case’. (Participant 23L) As indicated in Chapter 1 the literature has advocated for some time that lecturers should have a shared role with mentors in the clinical assessment of students (Clifford 1994, May et al 1997,......

Marriage - Wives

...wrong with your spouse or what they are or aren't doing. Us wives especially seem to have this innate drive to "fix" our husbands or tell them what they are doing wrong and how they should do it. They don't need to be fixed. We need to look at ourselves and let God show us where we are wrong first or what we can change in ourselves. I'll never forget years ago when I read the book "The Power of a Praying Wife". One of the first things she said was to stop focusing on praying that your husband will change,but rather pray that YOU will change. That was so hard to hear and it challenged me. I realized that's what I was doing wrong. I really thoughtthat if my husband changed, then everything would be better because of course, I couldn't be the problem. Lol. Boy was I wrong. I came to find that I was controlling, manipulative, self-righteous and an emotional mess just to name a few. I had to take a good, hard look at ME. Now if you aren't willing to put aside that pride that can get us, then you are in for some hard knocks. Pride will tell you that you're fine and you've dealt with all your issues and the issue is your spouse. I love what my Pastor says' " If you are having issues with someone, most likely the issue "is you". Wives, we have an awesome role in our marriages and change will come when we look at ourselves and let our Heavenly Father fix US first. Only then can we learn to love like He does and be the wives we were meant to be. Change takes time so be patient. Be......

...they're a good model for the early phases. Google looked a lot like a charity in the beginning. They didn't have ads for over a year. At year 1, Google was indistinguishable from a nonprofit. If a nonprofit or government organization had started a project to index the web, Google at year 1 is the limit of what they'd have produced. Back when I was working on spam filters I thought it would be a good idea to have a web-based email service with good spam filtering. I wasn't thinking of it as a company. I just wanted to keep people from getting spammed. But as I thought more about this project, I realized it would probably have to be a company. It would cost something to run, and it would be a pain to fund with grants and donations. That was a surprising realization. Companies often claim to be benevolent, but it was surprising to realize there were purely benevolent projects that had to be embodied as companies to work. I didn't want to start another company, so I didn't do it. But if someone had, they'd probably be quite rich now. There was a window of about two years when spam was increasing rapidly but all the big email services had terrible filters. If someone had launched a new, spam-free mail service, users would have flocked to it. Notice the pattern here? From either direction we get to the same spot. If you start from successful startups, you find they often behaved like nonprofits. And if you start from ideas for nonprofits, you find they'd often make......

Goods

...Chapter 2 Goods, Products and Services Glenn Parry, Linda Newnes, and Xiaoxi Huang 2.1 Introduction Defining terminology is a useful starting point when reading or writing on the subject of service to prevent any confusion or assumptions that we all understand the terms to mean the same thing. So, what do we mean by goods, products and services? This is a book about service, but what is a ‘service’ and how is it different to ‘goods’ or ‘products’? Whilst most people intuitively know the difference between a product and service, actually defining this difference with clarity and accuracy of text is not straight forward. The terms ‘goods’ and ‘products’ appear to be used interchangeably in much of the literature, but even here we can find debate about meaning (Araujo and Spring 2006; Callon 1991, 2002). However, for the sake of brevity we will here accept that they both refer to the same thing and focus on attempts to differentiate goods and services. This quest is far from straightforward. Since the early eighteenth century academics and scholars from different domains have attempted to define these terms explicitly (Say 1803; Levitt 1981; Hill 1999; Gadrey 2000). In this chapter we will attempt to illustrate their findings in order to provide some background to the debate. 2.2 Goods In the eighteenth century Adam Smith (1776) stated that goods have exchangeable value and so a characteristic of a good is that its ownership rights can be established and......

...Define what "good" means to you. Being good does not mean only by outer goodness . You have to consider being good straight from the heart i.e purely . Ultimately, you have to decide on your own code of ethics, and what matters is that you follow through with what you believe makes you a good person. At times, this may conflict with what others believe is good, and they might even accuse you of being wrong or evil. Consider their views-either they know something you don't, in which case you may learn something from them and update your morality, or perhaps their experience is limited, meaning that you should take their views with a grain of salt. Ad Be Good Step 2.jpg 2Be good for its own sake. Don't try to be a good person because your parents told you to, because you want recognition or respect, or for any kind of reward except your own satisfaction in doing what you believe is good. Never act superior to anyone else or brag about your "goodness" or "righteousness". Your dedication to a particular creed, ideology, or set of guidelines does not make you better than anyone else. Do what you believe makes you a good person on your own terms, and remember that it's an individual journey-everyone's path is unique. Do good by stealth, and blush to find it fame.[1] Be Good Step 3.jpg 3Be proactive. It's tempting to infer that as long as you avoid doing the things you know are bad (stealing, badmouthing, lying, intentionally saying hurtful things, etc.), then that means......

Good Will

...on Kant’s views on good will and moral worth, along with some real life examples, Socrates’s discussion on differences between mere true belief and real knowledge of virtue and several other philosophers’ unique interpretations and related discussions on this topic. Kant makes a clear argument about good will in the very beginning of his book Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals. He explicitly states that: “There is no possibility of thinking anything at all in the world, or even out of it, which can be regarded as good without qualification, except a good will. (Kant 7)” Kant believes that a good will is always morally good. Therefore, what a good will does is always morally good as well. Also, he obviously takes good will as the only true standard to judge the moral worth of a certain action. He explains that everything that seems to be good by itself actually could only be good if they are driven by a good will; without a good will, these other things might be used to produce negative outcomes. Except for a good will, nothing else would be good simply on its own. For example, loyal soldiers with bravery driven by a good will protect the city and the citizens well, and some of them may even sacrifice their own lives for such honorable aims. But without a good will, bravery can be used by greedy robbers and may lead to terrible outcomes. Also, scientists may use intelligence with a good will to improve our lives in various aspects; without such good will,......

Desperate House Wives

...Name: Professor: Course: Date: How Desperate House Wives Labels the “House Wives." Desperate Housewives (2004) is a comedy drama series about the secret lives of five women female characters who reside in Wisteria Lane, an American Suburb. Although the show was created in the 21st century, it does not make an accurate representation of women in the 21st century. The show portrays stereotypical female roles that range from the perfect mother to the usual trophy wives. This, therefore, shows that it is yet another example of misrepresented house wives, and although it is a 21st-century production, it employs a wide range of old stereotypes (Trier-Bieniek, & Patricia, 34). First of all, the title of the comedy drama is pregnant with negative connotations. At one time, this caused a lot of controversy in the U.S. when the President of the Parents Television Council, Mr. Brent Bozell criticized the comedy drama’s likely negative effect on morality in U.S society. Family values campaigners were enraged by the main theme of sex. Some critics described the show as treating the issues of infidelity lightly and portraying sex as gratuitous (Ruggerio, 15). Eddie portrays women as passive members of the society because she is successful in using her body and sexuality to get what she wants. For example, in her attempt to flirt with and seduce Carlos, she slowly takes off her clothes and is left standing with nothing other than her underwear illustrates that women are......

Be Good or Be Good at It

...Tamyra Hamilton Susan LaPlant ENGL 1102 K 2 April 2015 Be Good or Be Good At It In the article “Parents Notification Policies for Underage Drinking Evolve” by Jenna Johnson she discusses the pros and cons of informing a parent about their child’s alcohol-related actions that they condone at universities. Johnson seems to be on the fence throughout the whole article on whether she agrees or disagree with informing parents on every little detail in their child’s life pertaining to consuming or even just being around alcohol. In the article, Johnson quotes the vice president of student affairs at Virginia Tech, Edward Spencer, when he states “[s]tudents are more concerned about their parents being notified than they are of the legal consequences,” which is true because parents are more terrifying than any form of law enforcement (qtd. in Johnson). Regardless of how minor a situation is parents should be notified if their child is in any situation pertaining to alcohol. It is better for parents to know and be upset for a little while with their child than it is for the parents to not know and possibly not even have a child to be upset with because their child could be taken away from them. It is always best to expect the unexpected in any case regardless of the teenager trying to gain independence. The director of student conduct at the University of Maryland, John Zacker, said it best when he stated that “[t]here is no magical line here between May of their senior......

Sloppy pencil scratchings, torn sheets of paper, trashy penmanship, and sloppy appearance will be rejected or failed. If a graph has to be done, purchase graph paper or do the graph on Lotus or Excel. The X and Y axes must be clearly labeled as to the dimensions involved, what they mean, and how they are measured. The graph should have a clear title telling the reader what message the graph is supposed to illustrate. Use a straight edge or French curve to make your graphs. Freehand drawing is for art class, not for graphical analyses. For other work: Use the spell-checker on your computer and print it on good paper. Take the time and trouble to make your submissions look like MBA level work and not that of illiterates.

...External and Internal Factors Business organizations strive to be the best at what they do; however, to be the best, organizations must have good managers who understand how internal and external factors affect business operations and adjust accordingly. Business managers consistently use the four functions of management: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, but the best managers understand how internal and external factors affect these four functions of management. Globalization, technology, innovation, diversity, and ethics are some of the internal and external factors that can and do influence routine decisions managers must make while planning, organizing, leading, and controlling their respective businesses. Managers also use delegation to manage the different internal and internal factors and the different management functions. Founded in 1976 in a garage behind a house, Apple Inc. through the visionary leadership of Stephen P. Jobs revolutionized the computer industry before his resignation in 1985 in large part because of his inability to respond to internal factors that should have affected his management decisions (Pollack, 1985). Over the next 10 years Apple struggled to maintain market share until Jobs returned and revolutionized the company again by deftly responding to external and internal factors to reinvent the Apple brand and return it to prominence by making products better (Bajarin, 2010).
