...EU coursework 14th January 2013 ‘The courts direct effect decisions transformed the whole nature of the European Union from International organization to something like a federal union.’ (Shapiro) Discuss… The Phrase international organisation can be commonly defined as entities established by formal political agreements between their members that have the status of international treaties; their existence is recognised by law in their member countries; they are not treated as resident institutional units of the countries in which they are located. This definition is what the vast majority of people would class the European union as; an international organisation. ‘International organisations’, those that include the UN (united nations), tend to leave their decision making processes to the executives and those who are higher up in the organisation, which can leave the public, the legislation the organisation is designed to protect, feeling disillusioned from the organisation and not feel as if they get a say. This is something that the EU attempted to prevent and made some progress with the Lisbon treaty, ‘representing the culmination of decades of Treaty reform, to create a closer relationship between the institutions and public’. In contrast, a federal union is a political entity that is characterised by a union of partially self-governing states or regions united by a central government. An example of a federal union is the United states of America. As it has so many...

Twelfth Night as Coursework

...Twelfth Night Coursework Introduction Q. ‘Comedy, like all drama depends on conflicts, in particular between weak and strong characters’. Explore how far you agree that Shakespeare uses conflict to create comedy in twelfth night? Shakespeare’s use of conflict to create comedy for the reader is very effective, as he makes the arguments themselves be based on misunderstandings and manipulation, providing humour for the reader because they are not really caused by any actual wrong doing by any of the characters. This shows that the characters that have been manipulated in this way, such as Sir Andrew, when Sir Toby gets him to fight Viola/Cesario, are weak characters, because as with Sir Andrew, he has allowed Sir Toby to cloud his judgment and cause him to believe that he has a good reason to fight Viola. In this situation, there is more humour because we learn that Sir Andrew dresses very well and has a respectful position, he seems at first like he should be a stronger man, but Sir Toby’s easy manipulation of him shows the reader that Sir Andrew is in fact more like an unsure, naïve child. Because of this we get the impression that Sir Andrew is one of the weaker characters, but we know that Viola is a stronger character, because although she is afraid to fight Sir Andrew when he challenges her, she tries her best, and stands up to fight despite being innocent and being a woman. This could be humorous for the reader too, because we see how Sir Andrew is afraid to fight......

...Sociology Coursework 2 In the contemporary world, one of the most important concept of sociology of work is alienation. “The sense that our own abilities, as human beings, are taken over by other entities”(Anthony Giddens ,1989:224). The more people transform the world themselves, the more the world becomes strange for them and the more people experience themselves as aliens in that contemporary world. The world faced a rapid technological process. On the contrary, people experience of uneasiness about our technological being in the world. Some sociologists maintain that work technology has an important impact on the level of job satisfaction or dissatisfaction of industrial workers in their workplace behaviour. Many people become alienated by doing their repetitive as well as boring job. An oversimplifying example of alienation is when worker attaches tires onto a car in a auto manufacturing plant. This essay will examine Karl Marx's contribution on alienation as well as contribution of Robert Blauner. Initially, Karl Marx claimed that alienation exists whenever and wherever there is Capitalism(Kennett, 2004). Marx maintains that alienation is interior part of the capitalist labour process, and that is why he considers that alienation is an objective state where all workers find themselves(Noon, 2007). He argues that there are four manifestations of alienation under industrial capitalism. The first manifestation is “product alienation”, it occurs when workers see......

Labour Market Coursework

...Labour market policy coursework It has been suggested that lowering the UK’s statutory minimum wage would reduce unemployment and “get Britain working”. Discuss the merits of this statement referring to appropriate academic research/evidence. The national minimum wage (NMW) introduced in 1999 is the minimum amount the government expects employers to pay their employees per hour at work. At the present time (2012) the UK’s NMW is £6.19 per hour for employees over the age of 21 years. It sets a price floor in order to balance out the fairness of the work carried out and to ensure there is pay equality between staff. Unemployment involves people who are not currently in a job but are actively looking for work. There has been a high amount of unemployment in the UK with % of people out of work. It has been suggested that there is a link between the NWM and unemployment levels. This is that lowering the NMW would lead to more employment and get people into work. This is on the basis that the NMW is fixed under the equilibrium wage which labour supply and labour demand meet. However with the NMW posed over this equilibrium this leads to a decrease in employment. The graph (Smith 2003) shows that if the NMW is above the equilibrium then there is a surplus of labour demand. This is because firms decrease employment and demand for labour increases. Therefore, lowering the NMW below the equilibrium would lead to an increase in demand for labour with firms hiring more......

Lean and Agile Concepts: the Pd Aquarium Case Study.

...Lean and Agile Concepts: The PD Aquarium Case Study. Analyze the methodology used to understand the processes at the firm The methodology used in identifying the workflow at PD Aquarium [PDA] is process mapping. The authors have successfully provided a pictorial view of the process through flow charts and the activity maps Process Mapping helps in analysis of process flow, by differentiating how a process is and how it should be. What functions are performed, how they are performed and how they should be performed. It depicts the activities, information flow and interconnections in a process. Their effectiveness in identifying problems, According to process mapping and analysis (2004), it offers a simple, yet powerful method of looking beyond functional activities and rediscovering your core, key and supporting processes. one of the key aspects of mapping is flow charts which gives a picturesque image of the entire process thus aiding in identify the problems in the task and modifying the process therein. A flow chart looks at a task from every angle. For instance Graham’s Process mapping talks about analyising the “What” documents are used for the process, “where” is the task performed, “who” is carrying out the task, “when and where” is the maximum process time spent, “who” are the decision makers, “where” do the controls lie, and last and most importantly the “where are the “Value Additions” In case of PDA there are 3 problems that have been identified; 1.......

The formula for the reaction is: HCl(aq) + Na2S2O3(aq) NaCl(aq) + SO2(g) + S(s) + H2O(l). The formula shows us that the sulphur precipitate is formed along with water, sodium chloride and sulphur dioxide. Sulphur dioxide is a poisonous gas and so extra care will be taken not to inhale any. Figure 1 [18] Variables The Variables that affect the reaction rate......

...5.1.16 ! ROWING! ! PE COURSEWORK D SHAM Section B- AA1- Sculling Strokes - Inconsistent hand heights on recovery! B2 - Technical Model! ! ! ! Elite Technical Model of Performer- Mahe Drysdale! ! In a competitive situation, the consistency of hand heights is important as it is an important factor in determining whether a boat will be sat or not. The most important factor in having a balanced boat through the recovery phase is to have consistent hand heights through the boat. Especially in a competitive situation where the rate per minute is typically high. Mahe Drysdale is a very experienced sculler from New Zealand, who is a current olympic champion with 5 word champion titles in a single scull. Despite Mahe’s age of 34 at that time, he is still a world champion not just because of his experience and amount of training, but also due to the fact that he is very consistent on the water. His consistent blade heights allows him for an early catch, which allows him to take full advantage of a stroke. In the 2012 olympics, Mahe finished first with a close 3/4 length lead to 30 year old Czech Republic single sculler Ondřej Synek. ! ! ! Preparation! To prepare going up the slide, the performer should be sat at the finish with both legs extended, body slightly leaning back. Both oars should be drawn into the chest feathered. ! ! ! Execution! Blade height can only be judged during the recovery phase. Therefore the recovery phase......

Pendulum Coursework

...Pendulum coursework The year 10 extended group is investigating a pendulum; each one of us is going to change something to it, to make the investigation more interesting. The things that we could change are: * The length of the string (20,40,60,80,100,120,140,160,180,200; in cm) * The weight of the plasticine (55 grams) * Shape of the object, aerodinamicity (ball, sphere) * The angle of where you started to throw the plasticine, (45º) The things that we could measure or observe are: * Amounts of laps in a given time (10 laps) * In how much time it stops * Its speed/ acceleration * Time to do certain amount of laps I decided that I will change (independent) the length of the string of the pendulum (measurements: 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140, 160, 180, 200; in cm) and I will measure/observe (dependent) time to do certain amount of laps. (10 laps.) My question is: How much time it takes to do 10 laps? What I will keep the same is: * The weight of the plasticine (55g) * The shape of the object (sphere) * The angle of where I started to throw the plasticine (45º) My prediction is: When I change the length of the string of the pendulum I think what will happen to the laps of the pendulum is that as longer the string the less laps will the pendulum do. This is because the pendulum will take more time to return to its initial point, for the reason that it is a longer distance to travel so it will take longer. Method 1. Make......

Othello Coursework Essay

...Othello Coursework Question 1: 'I took you for that cunning whore of Venice/ that married with Othello'. Looking again at Act 4 Scene 2 and Act 5 Scene 2 consider to what extent the presentation of Desdemona is that of a sufficiently convincing tragic heroine? William Shakespeare's ''Othello'' is a complex tragedy, with many conflicting desires, jealousy and memorable characters. As the audience, we are able to see the changes the characters face throughout the play. These differences can turn the entire play from romantic to a disastrous ending. The main female protagonist Desdemona lives through these changes in Shakespeare's ''Othello'', we as the audience are able to acknowledge her feelings and how she goes from a confident, brave young woman who doesn't think twice on what other's think about her and has the audacity to go against her father's wishes and marries the husband of her choice, Othello, to a broken betrayed and murdered girl. Throughout the play we are able to notice that Desdemona's character slowly breaks, her confidence begins to shatter as her husband begins to lose his trust towards her and slowly the audience is able to see their relationship disintegrate. Furthermore, the confidence she had from the beginning of the play is gone and replaced by the feelings of betrayal and lose of trust. Throughout the play she has been targeted by jealousy and tragic forces. I think Desdemona in some sense is a tragic heroine, looking at Shakespeare’s and......
