PASTILLAS CONTRA EL DOLOR AJENO DE MÉDICOS SIN FRONTERAS Imanol Egusquiza Martínez Guillermo López Mota Kerman Simón Bolado Tutora: Covadonga Aldamiz-echevarría González de Durana Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Empresariales UPV-EHU (España) RESUMEN: La institución de la que vamos a tratar en las sucesivas páginas es Médicos Sin Fronteras, una organización internacional que presta ayuda médica y humanitaria en aquellas zonas necesitadas en las que faltan recursos. La acción humanitaria y social que realiza es bien conocida por todos, pero nosotros nos ocuparemos de una reciente acción de marketing que realizan para recaudar fondos de manera que da la posibilidad de participar a la vez que busca sensibilizar a la población sobre el dolor que sufren muchos enfermos olvidados. Nos referimos a las Pastillas contra el dolor ajeno, unos caramelos que han sido producidos conjuntamente por varias empresas que han participado de forma desinteresada con el proyecto y que se distribuyen exclusivamente en farmacias. Al comprar estos caramelos, que no contienen ningún tipo de fármaco, colaboramos para que MSF disponga de más fondos para realizar su labor.

ABSTRACT: The institution that we analyse in the following pages is Medicins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders, an international organization that provides medical and humanitarian assistance in areas where there is lack of resources. The humanitarian and social action this NGO performs is well known to all. However, we will focus on the recent marketing efforts carried out by the organization to raise funds so as to engage the public and raise their awareness about the pain suffered by many “forgotten” patients. We are referring to “Pills against another’s pain”, candies that have been produced by several companies without…...

The Sin Bin

...The Sin Bin or Lucy’s Heart It is not and has never been easy being a teenager. With teenage life, comes confusion, overwhelming feelings, a new self-awareness and search for one’s identity and path of life. This is exactly what we see in Lucy Cross’s short story “The Sin Bin or Lucy’s Heart”, where we meet a teenage girl, who is very unsure of what she wants and therefor only strives to please her surroundings in her search for acceptance. She is at a breaking point, where she has to choose her way, identity, and which type of friends she wants to be related to. Which way will she go? Through a first-person narrator we are able to know what Lucy is thinking. This gives us greater insight into what goes on in her mind. Lucy is an A-grade student, but it is not all fun and games. She is a teenage girl struggling to find herself and way in life. She is at that stage where you have to decide, who you want to be and which is something your surroundings has a great impact on. The first thing we learn from the story is that she is in detention and therefore the reader immediately gets the impression that the main character is a “bad girl”. But we are soon proven wrong. The reaction of her old teacher to her detention, clearly shoes how unusual it is for Lucy to behave this way. “What on earth are you doing in here, Lucy?”She was given detention because she hit Penny Jones. “Penny Jones is very thin. When I hit her, I thought she just might fall over.” “… I didn’t know......

Deadly Sins

...first murder, they think it’s just another big city murder was committed for no reason. The next day is the murder of a wealthy defense lawyer found dead in his office. The word greed is written in blood beside his body. Mills and Somerset finds out, that this serial killer finds his inspiration in religion. The murder has certainly no connection to the victims. There are no questions of revenge. Somerset and Mills begins to investigate deadly sins in historical writings as an example – Dante, The Divine Comedy. They indentify the seven deadly sins, pride, envy, wrath, sloth, greed, gluttony and lust. The killer, John Doe will commit a murder for every mortal sin and back are basically only waiting for him the strike. The seven deadly sins included in the movie in the way that six out of seven appears as murder. It turns out that the last murder hasn’t been executed. John Doe’s idea is to hit Mills so hard with the murder of his wife, so he turns out killing John Doe. Committed with the sin wrath. I think the reason for the seven deadly sins is a part of the movie, is because serial killers are psychopathic. He built up his lifework based on something religious. In the end of the movie, William says to Mills: if you kill him, he’ll win! He would finish up his lifework! It’s not only the light there causes the movie. It’s all the details, impression and of course the light, there is forming the atmosphere. The entire amount of ignorance. Seven is a combination of crime,......

Original Sin

...Judaism’s Rejection of the Original Sin In the bible, the story of Adam and Eve in the book of Genesis serves as scriptural evidence of humankind’s first transgression of God’s command resulting in the expulsion from paradise. Christians claim that humans are tainted from the fall and many scholars reinforce the idea of a recovery narrative, which depicts the bible as following a pattern of decline and recovery, thereby reinforcing the belief that something was once lost and must be recovered. After mankind’s fall from the state of perfection, Christians believed that Jesus was their savior and would consequently sacrifice himself in order to redeem man. Through the act of disobedience in Genesis emerged the concept of the original sin, which stipulates that humans are born sinners and that sins pass from parent to child as an inherited characteristic. Jewish believers, however, often criticize this notion and although they acknowledge that the human race came under the dominion of sin, which would affect their subsequent environment, Judaism, unlike Christianity denies that man is born into this world in a state of sin. Judaism affirms that the act of sinning is not part of the human condition but rather represents a conflict between two opposing inclinations (a good and an evil tendency) and that man has the ability to resist sin and can overcome the evil inclination by willing himself to become a righteous person. Therefore, Jewish people believe that man is......

Sin Nombre

...Sin Nombre, loosely translated as “without name”, is an independent film released in 2009 under the skillful direction of Cary Fukunaga. Fukunaga, a film graduate from New York University, also attended a French university and carries a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of California at Santa Cruz. During his studies and New York University, he made a short film titled Victoria Para Chino, a film about a group of immigrants who died in a refrigerated trailer when immigrating to America; The inspiration behind Sin Nombre came from that short film. In his first major production, Fukunaga continued his interest in the topic of immigration, and came up with the creation of Sin Nombre. The film follows both a young gangster of the Mara Salvatrucha gang, Casper, and young girl from Honduras, Sayra, on their difficult journey to America. Fukunaga’s overall reason for the film was to express the hardships Central American people face on their journey to America, in hopes that people could see immigration from a different light. The film is directed mainly towards citizens of America, Central America, and Mexico although it can spread to any area with controversial opinions of immigration. The constraints of the film include time, as the film lasted just 96 minutes, rating, the limited budget of an independent film, the dangerous filming locations in Central America and Mexico, and language— the film is spoken completely in spanish with english subtitles.

Social Sin

...Cordova, Heshie Niña C. IV – BS BAM T-104 WF 1:30-3:00 Social Sin: Graft and corruption Brief History: Philippines suffers from widespread corruption which are manifested in many various forms including bribery, kickbacks, embezzlement, vote buying, cronyism, and nepotism. The Marcos regime, which has been described as a kleptocracy, literally “rule by thieves,” made the Guinness Book of World Records in the late 1980s as the most corrupt government of all time.. According to a World Bank study in 2008, corruption in the Philippines is considered to be the worst among East Asia’s leading economies and the country has sunk even lower among those seen to be lagging in governance reforms. The 2009 Corruption Perceptions Index published by global watchdog Transparency International, showed that the situation in the country had improved slightly but still remained serious. The Philippines ranked 3rd among 180 countries included in the index, up from its previous 141st ranking in 2008. The nation scored 2.4 in the TI index, compared to 2.3 in 2008. Corruption exists in all levels of the government, especially among high-level civil servants, according to the US Department of State Investment Climate Statement 2013. Companies generally have little confidence in the Philippine judicial system, and this is due to the allegedly incompetent court personnel, corruption and long delays of court cases. Expatriate businessmen in Asia perceive the Philippines as......

Masturbation Is a Sin

...Below is a Bold topic for the family... Please read it... You can use it to counsel who r addicted to this Bad Habit or Can be helpful to clear your own doubt's & to come out of it... IS MASTURBATION A SIN? To start with,masturbation is self service by which one derives pleasure;it's a sexual stimulation of the genitals, usually to the point of orgasm, it's usually performed using the hands, fingers, everyday objects, or dedicated sex toys. So the question: Is it sinful for a child of God to masturbate? The sincere and simple answer is that, it is biblically sinful based on these three points: (1) IT'S DISHONORING YOUR BODY. Pastors and preachers who claim that masturbation is not a sin are the same people who say a godly woman can dress any how; their base is that God's is not concern about what you do with your body, watch out! Such people believe God is only after your mind or your heart, and your body is none of His business, you can dress half naked as a woman, you can wear earrings as a man, perm your hair like woman; you can smoke, drink, it is your body, normal habit, and none of God's business. Such teaching of your body is not God's business is satanic and unbiblical. God is interested in your body as well as your soul, God wants you to keep your heart holy as well as your body. Romans 12:1, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service."......

Gensis and Sin

...The book of Genesis chapters one through eleven show us the absolute beginning of the natural world as we know it. In all his magnificent glory God created objects with sense awareness, self-awareness and finally man, which had God awareness. What God made was good; however, whenever there is good, the enemy seeks to destroy it. Here enters sin, “the corruption of the human race, and the long, difficult history of fallen humanity” (Hindson and Yates 2012:2) From the moment sin entered this equation we call existence, humans struggled to find their true identity with God. What was so clear in the Garden of Eden was now a jumbled mess of sin and mistakes. Even through disobedience, God loved us enough to offer a solution, a savior. In Genesis we see only the tip of God’s love for his people, not just the Jews but the entire human race. Although God never gave an exact time table, the search for this savior began immediately. From the birth of Cain, Eve began expecting that he was the promised one. The bible states “she conceived and bore Cain and said I have acquired a man from the LORD” (Genesis 4: 1 NKJV). This search for an identity with God continued throughout the Old Testament until finally Jesus Christ came on the scene which fulfilled the promise of God. Even though we have victory through Jesus Christ today, many are still lost and searching for their identity and a meaning. Without Christ in one’s life, one is lost. Like a ship without a sail, those who do not...

The Origin of Sin

...CHAPTER 8 The Origin Of Sin--Part 1 We live in a world that is filled with evil and wrong.  Are the daily newspapers filled only with nice stories about people loving and helping each other? Does the news on television show a world in which everything is happy and peaceful? We live in a world that has a very real need for policemen, soldiers, judges, and prisons. Every car is equipped with locks on the doors. Homes are built so that doors and windows can be locked. All the evidence points to the unmistakable fact that we live in a world that has been spoiled and polluted and defiled by SIN. Where and when did sin ORIGINATE (see Chapter 1 for the meaning of the words "origin" and "originate")? Where did sin first begin? When did sin first begin? When did sin first begin on planet earth?  Who was the first sinner? Was there ever a time when there was no sin? Today God’s sinful creatures (men and angels) are at war with God. They rebel against God, disobey God, dishonor God, and turn aside from God’s ways. Was there ever a time when God’s creatures were in perfect HARMONY with God, and, enjoying perfect FELLOWSHIP with Him? How did sin first originate? Where did it all begin?  Complete the following sentence by circling the correct answer: SIN FIRST BEGAN . . . a. With Eve who ate the forbidden fruit. b. With Adam who ate the forbidden fruit. c. With Satan who deceived Eve in the garden of Eden. d. With Cain, who murdered his brother Abel. The correct......

Sin Nombre

...Carlos F. Salazar 11/11/14 LAST 1010: Introduction to Latin American Studies I Instructor: Corinne Boudreaux Sin Nombre – Response Paper The most shocking scene for me happens at the end of the film when Sayra and Willy (Casper) reach a river that represents the border between Mexico and the United States. As they get there, a coyote or people smuggler agrees to take them across one by one. Casper pays the man with his stolen digital camera containing the prized pictures of his murdered girlfriend and lets Sayra go first. Just as she is half way through, the gang finds Casper. After a desperate chase, Smiley encounters him on the riverbank. Thereupon, Smiley, with tears in his eyes, shoots Casper three times, the last bullet piercing his head. This allows time for the other maras to catch up. They then all proceed to empty their magazines and clips into Casper in an execution style killing, while Sayra struggles to hold on to the raft and screams horrified. From my point of view, it’s ironic that Smiley is the one who kills Casper. Smiley, a young 12-year-old kid, recruited and initiated by Casper himself was the one in charge of ending his life, no one else. Casper was the one who brought him up in the gang and taught him about the tasks, responsibilities, and sense of comradeship of MS-13. I think part of the movie’s a message with this scene is that “who that lives by the sword, dies by the sword”. This means that if you use violence, or other harsh means,......

Sin Nombre

...Abby Salinas Professor Ruiz LAST 1020 18 February 2016 Fools Without Borders: A Conversation in Transnational Identity Politics Sin Nombre confronts its viewers with more than the harsh realities of crime and violence in Latin America. Cary Fukunaga intertwines the lives of Sayra – a young Honduran immigrant looking to reach the United States – and Willy – a Mexican gangster whose cognitive understanding of community has shattered and turned into his worst nightmare. The result is a potent exposition of the effects of globalization on transnational interactions, community identity, and urban space. Paired with Zilberg’s ethnographic study of Maras and Marreros across borders, Sin Nombre suggests that forced trans-nationality and the associated evolution of multifaceted identity politics are propelling modern society away from an identification of individuals based on nationality (where they live) and instead by Benedict Anderson’s concept of imagined communities (who and what they live with). The characters presented in both the movie and Zilberg’s study represent threats to their respective social orders and are therefore confronted with a forced separation from their communities and homes. Willy (the gangster in Sin Nombre) threatened the hierarchical structure of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS) by killing his superior. His options were to attempt exile or to accept death. Weasel (a subject in Zilberg’s study), proved to hold a disregard for American laws by ending up......

Sin Stocks

...scientists believe that social norms are important in shaping economic behavior and market outcomes, overriding at times even the profit motive. The authors find that a societal norm exists against funding operations that promote vice and that some investors are willing to pay a financial cost to abstain from these stocks. Consequently, sin stocks are less widely held and tend to be relatively cheap when benchmarked against comparables. A key issue in the literature on socially responsible investing is whether it causes corporations to change their behavior. The authors show that for sin stocks, the neglect by large institutions significantly affects their cost of capital. The Price of Sin: The Effects of Social Norms on Markets I. Introduction In this paper, Harrison Hong and Marcin Kacperczyk analyze the effects of social norms on markets by studying sin stocks i.e. publicly traded companies engaged in producing alcohol, tobacco and gaming. Due to the societal norm against funding operations that promote human vice, many investors steer away from supporting these companies by investing in their stocks. II. Background on and Selection of Sin Stocks The authors deduce that the three products namely tobacco, alcohol and gaming are viewed as sinful by individuals and social groups owing to their addictive qualities and unfavorable social consequences when consumed extremely. III. Data The authors illustrate their data collected of these stocks. A. Variables in......
