14 May, 2012 Shakespeare expresses different sorts of imagery throughout his play written play, “Macbeth.” Macbeth encounters illusions, hallucinations and apparitions throughout the play that symbolize other meaning and have an affect on later events that lead him to his downfall. He had an illusion of a dagger pointing to King Duncans’ room before he murdered him. He had a hallucination about his friend Banquo after he had murdered him. Macbeth was told three apparitions by witches about how he would die which weren’t meant to be true but happened in ways he didn’t fully expect. “Is this a dagger which I see before me/The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee/I have thee not, and yet I see thee still/Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible/ To feeling as to sight? Or art thou but/A dagger of the mind, a false creation/Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?/I see thee yet, in form as palpable/As this which now i draw/Thou marshall’st me the way that I was going/And such an instrument I was to use/Mine eyes are made the fools o’ th’ other senses/Or else worth all the rest. I see thee still/And on thy blade the dudgeon gouts of blood/Which was not so before. There’s no such thing/It is the bloody business which informs/Thus to mine eyes." (2.1.33-48).
Macbeth is getting prepared to commit the crime of murdering King Duncan. He gets so nervous and overwhelmed by the situation that he has an illusion of a dagger. He can see it but he knows it’s not real because as he tries to grab it he can’t touch it. This was the first murder he was going to commit, therefor he became so nervous and overwhelmed that caused his mind to create an illusion. As the dagger turns and points to Duncan’s room, it’s actually just his mind showing him what he’s about to do. He sees blood on it because he knows that it’s going to be used for the…...

...obtain a job at McDonald’s. H. G. Wells, a central character in the movie Time After Time (1979), finds himself transported to the modern world of a McDonald’s, where he tries to order the tea he was accustomed to drinking in Victorian England. In Sleeper (1973), Woody Allen awakens in the future only to encounter a McDonald’s. Tin Men (1987) ends with the early 1960s heroes driving off into a future represented by a huge golden arch looming in the distance. Scotland, PA (2001) brings Macbeth to the Pennsylvania of the 1970s. The famous murder scene from the Shakespeare play involves, in this case, plunging a doughnut king’s head into the boiling oil of a deep fat fryer. The McBeths then use their ill-gotten gains to transform the king’s greasy spoon café into a fast-food restaurant featuring McBeth burgers. The focus of the movie Fast Food Nation (2006) is a fictional fast-food chain (“Mickey’s”), featuring its hit hamburger (“The Big One”), the beef processor that supplies the meat, and the plight of the illegal Mexican immigrants who work there.

Essay on the Origin of Baptist Denomination

...program for children. Today, Baptist is the biggest Christian denomination. According to the Barna Group researchers, Baptists are the largest denominational groupings of born again Christians in the USA 2009. Baptists may come from different derivations, may have different views and perspectives and may treat themselves as different from each other, but what is important is that they are united in one purpose, in one aim. This one purpose, despite the differences, accord them to one duty and that is to them to all work together in expanding the kingdom of God.

...received which prompted SBC agencies to expand on borrowed money. The actual collection of the pledges proved difficult because the South experienced a recession due to drop in crop prices after World War I. Support also was affected by the notion that the funds were to be used for an Interchurch Fund which the South did not want to participate in. The Southern Baptist Convention was affected negatively when Clinton Carnes, treasurer of Home Mission Board, who embezzled $909,461. The scandal affected the image of the SBC and the confidence of its members. The recession, the scandal, and the stock market crash of 1929 further exasperated the Baptists. In response, Southern Baptist had massive cuts in areas of missions, and education. McBeth expressed the dire state: “SBC and its entire assets could probably have been thrown into bankruptcy proceedings had the creditors desired.” The dire situation provided a target for fundamentalists to attack. As pastors pressured their congregations to pay their pledges, the embarrassment of the inability to pay fueled a fear to pledge that affects Baptist financial campaigns to this day. Although the campaign put great strains on the SBC, there were several benefits. First, the SBC received three times what they normally received in the five years prior to the campaign. Second, the Baptist churches also experienced a spiritual renewal with baptisms exceeding more than any other time before which led to thousands of young......

...all assets are held (prices adjust if they are not), the tangency portfolio is the market portfolio, containing every asset there is (this leads to the SDF in the CAPM). Hence, when the market return changes consumption changes. Marginal utility of consumption was the basis of the SDF. The SDF in the CAPM can be obtained in various ways, all justify the people only care about mean and variance only. The market is a factor: there is a perfect negative correlation between marginal utility and the market portfolio. Perfect, because there is nothing you do not invest in. Negative, since the extra utility from each further unit of return (=consumption) decreases as a consequence of risk aversion (marginal utility is decreasing). Fama & McBeth Testable implications: is linear, no other factor than β should explain E(r) & > 0 because otherwise there would be no return for risk. They added non-linear terms (Taylor expansions, to test the linearity) and a factor mimicking idiosyncratic risk. When checking the estimates, not only do you want > 0, but also = intercept, and slope = market risk premium. The β’s were calculated: . (Errors-in-variables problem and β’s are not constant over time, they used portfolios to solve the second problem). Estimating risk premia: other factors. Results: both the Taylor expansion and the factor mimicking idiosyncratic risk where insignificant. Roll’s critique: Market portfolio is needed to estimate the β and the market......

...Jamie McBeth English 1010-008 February 9, 2011 Food For Thought America is one of the richest, most influential countries in the world. And as an example should it not be one of the healthiest too? Maybe it should, but the sad truth is that Americans are some of the unhealthiest people in the world. Even though we are living in a country with great economic power and technological advancement, we are also living in a country with the smallest amount of practical nutritional knowledge. We are living in a land plagued with obesity. Zinczenko offers a solution to a growing problem by advising the fast-food industry to revel the nutritional value of their products to the nation. Rather than keeping the cover over our eyes. There are numerous opinions linked to the cause of obesity, making it nearly impossible to place the blame on just one thing, which professionals seem to be trying to do! Some are making claims that the advertisers are to blame by trying to influence children from what seems like infancy to buy their products. Others are bringing up the point that nutritional information should be provided so we can make an intellectual decision. Another is saying that it is entirely the large corporations fault for making it easier to be lazy. With such stipulations the finger gets pointed in every direction without results, only a handful of people are actually taking charge of what will ultimately reduce the rise of this obesity epidemic. David Zinczenko’s......

The Contribution of Baptists in the Struggle for Religious Freedom the contributions of Baptists in the centuries long struggle to obtain religious freedom. Their struggle began not in the American colonies but rather in England a century earlier. “The freedom of religious belief and behavior which modern Baptists and others take for granted was forged in the crucible of persecution in seventeenth-century England” McBeth adds that, “No group can claim more credit for the Act of Toleration, passed by Parliament in 1689.” The struggle that began in England would later be waged again in America. Few people today realize that it is largely through the efforts of Baptists that religious freedom was granted in the Bill of Rights. The simple fact is that the religious freedom enjoyed by much of the world today could not have been achieved without the contributions of courageous Baptist leaders such as Roger Williams, Isaac Backus, John Leland, and a host of others. IN THE BEGINNING The quest for religious freedom was an essential element of the Baptist witness right from the start. Historians often attribute this fact to the persecution experienced by the earliest Baptists. According to McBeth, “Early Baptists faced severe opposition for most of the seventeenth century from a hostile governments and from religious opponents as well.” This observation is followed by the assertion that, “Baptists developed and articulated a doctrine of complete religious liberty for themselves and for all others,” and is presented in a way that seems to link......
