An Amphora From The Past

A very well preserved Amphora with the Birth of Athena and a four Horse Chariot, Greek, 560-540BC, Group E, Attic, Terracota black figure painting, is available for view at the Yale University Art Gallery. The amphora stands in a glass case that allows the viewer to observe each detail of the amphora at a very close proximity. At simple glance you can see an oval shape Greek pottery vase with handles at each side. The amphora is made of clay with internal details seemed to be accentuated into the bodies to make certain parts stand out. The amphora is done with figures in silhouette all in black with hints of red and white. At first glance in the front of the amphora you see five figures done very delicate and grateful patterns in profile. In the center of the vase there is a figure that stands out from the rest of the figures on the frontal view of the vase.

As you go around the vase four horses seem to be pulling a chariot that gives the impression of coming towards the viewer. The chariot is being commanded by a person dressed in white also in a frontal view. Also there is the presence of some geometric designs at the top and bottom of the amphora. Underneath the throne there is another small figure with a robe elegantly wrapped around the robe. At a closer view we see leaping from the top of the head of the central figure a very small person fully dressed in black and red ready to jump into action. In the center of the vase seating in a throne is Zeus with feet close together but one in front of the other floating in the air. The throne is done in black wit a hint of white and ends with a head in the shape of a duck done on brown colors. The legs of the throne seem to be hanging in the middle with a very thin string. He is clearly in command but you can sense the presence of complete harmony among the other human…...

Birth Control

...Birth control is an issue that has puzzled our morality for years. When younger adults, teenagers begin to use it, it becomes an even larger controversy. Through this our human nature must comprehend the problem, act upon it, and therefore take a stand that might occasionally conflict with our personal beliefs. Yet, birth control continues to strive during a period where people of the world neglect to analyze their own actions and accepting the fact that personal dealings seem to reflect their true inner beliefs. Teenagers are the target groups that focus on birth control the most. With all the risk factors in the world today I think birth control should not be given to teenager because of promiscuousness, non-communication and un-healthiness. Although I’m against teen birth control, other has their reasons for it, such as, pregnancy, education, and abortion. Allowing teen’s access to birth control may help decrease the amount of teen pregnancies taking place each year. There are now instances of thirteen and fourteen year old girls having babies, teens that are completely unprepared to give birth and raise a child. Another reason is that it gives teens the choice to continue education. When a teenager becomes a mother or pregnant, its hard to finish school which causes some to drop out. Last reason someone might be for teen birth control is to prevent abortions. Access to birth control can help reduce the number of teen abortions that take place each year. Although...

...Business Strategy Case 3 The O-Fold Kyle Huffman Olds College Submission Date: February 14 2013 O-Fold Business Opportunity Introduction Alex Richards was a 4.0 GPA student, double majoring in finance and accounting. Before taking a trip to Colorado, Alex was faced with a problem: whether or not to take a suit on the plane, he did not want to wear it on the plane nor pack a suit case due to having the clothing wrinkle. He came up with the idea of the O-Fold, a cylindrical tube that clothes could be wrapped around, secured with straps, packed into tight spaces, and arrive wrinkle free. After completing a preliminary patent search online and finding nothing similar to his idea, Alex had to make a choice whether or not to start a company. He came up with four options, sell the idea, license the idea, outsource production, or use a crawl-walk-run strategy.

He served as organizer and head of the Freedmen’s Bureau in (1865-72) and founder of Howard University.

When she was a little girl one of the fairs loved and cared for her so much that the fairy was known as Pallas who became Athena playmate. As a brave and playful child Athena accidentally killed Pallas, as a symbol of Athena’s sadness she place the name of the fairy Palls before her own name. This causes others to know her as Pallas Athena which is not her name given at birth.

Birth Defects

... Birth defects About one in every 33 babies (about 3%) is born with a birth defect. Birth defects are structural or functional abnormalities present at birth that cause physical or mental disability. There are two types of birth defects structure and functional. Structural birth defects are related to a problem with body parts. Some physical problems include cleft lip or cleft palate, heart defects, such as missing or misshaped valves, and abnormal limbs, such as a club foot. Functional birth defects are related to a problem with how a body part or body system works. No one is immune to birth defects, yet not everyone is equally susceptible. Birth defects are not merely a medical problem. They have profound effects on the social and psychological well being of their family and friends. In the normal course of fetal development, a cell migrates to their appropriate destination so that organs and limbs form where they should. Usually, the genes perform flawlessly, but mistakes can and do occur. Some of the most common birth defects results from the interaction between one or two abnormal genes out of 100,000 that make up who we are. This is caused by the genes parents pass on or affected by drugs and alcohol upon the fetus of a new born child. Down’s syndrome, the most common genetic disease formerly known as mongolism, "occurs one in every six hundred births throughout the world" ( Storm 102). It is caused by chromosomal error, where there is an extra chromosome 21. Instead......

Birth Control

...WORLD ARGUMENTS FOR AND AGAINST BIRTH CONTROL Argument 1 for Birth Control: Birth control paves the way for responsible family planning. In today’s hard times, it is but a couple’s due diligence to properly plan for family life. Planned pregnancies ensure that both the soon-to-be father and mother are ready for the daunting task of taking care of a child. Planning for a family entails not just financial investment but emotional investment as well. Until the couple is ready to face the realities and hardships of parenthood, birth control must be practiced. It may be accomplished via 100% abstinence from sex or thru other medically acceptable means. Birth control helps any couple to engage in sexual relations while controlling the timing of when they would start a family together. Argument 2 for Birth Control: Birth control saves lives and reduces abortion. The conscious decision of birth control and the access to various methods have proven effective in the prevention of unwanted pregnancies. There is an extremely large possibility that unwanted pregnancies lead to abortion, especially for countries that are non-Catholic. It is also a fact that during childbirth, there is a high risk of death as well. If birth control is practiced, you prevent unwanted and untimely pregnancy and you do not only save the unborn child but the mother as well. Argument 3 for Birth Control: Birth control prevents destitution or utter poverty. Providing quality of life to...

Athena: Goddess of War

...Ἀθηνᾶ Goddess magazine presents an exclusive interview with the ever-elusive Athena, goddess of wisdom, war and invention. She has been revered and worshipped for over three thousand years, is the daughter of the mightiest god, Zeus, and is the patron deity of Athens. She has counselled warriors and heroes as well as punished many mortals. Her power and beauty was renowned as was her purity and wisdom. She speaks today about her fantastical birth, her decision to remain chaste and her semi-feud with Aphrodite. T he first thing I noticed about the infamous goddess of wisdom was her undeniable beauty. Her very essence had fascinated me for years. The fact that she remained faithful to herself and her beliefs as well as the fact that she wielded her power with such grace and elegance made her my favourite deity by far. Goddess: Let’s start out first with your incredible birth. Unlike any other mortal or immortal, you were born from your father’s head. Do you think that gave you a closer relationship with him? Athena: [Nods] Certainly. I never knew my mother. He was everything to me. I believe the fact that I was born from his head allowed my father to feel a closer connection to me than any of my many other siblings. That being said, my father did initially swallow my mother, Metis, to prevent my birth. [Laughs] “I never knew my mother. He was everything to me. I believe the fact that I was born from his head allowed my father to feel a closer connection to me than...

"O Me! O Life" Analysis

...Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring, Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish, Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?) Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d, Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me, Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined, The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life? Answer. That you are here—that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. Abstract Meaning In his poem “O Me, O Life,” Walt Whitman questions the futility of life. Whitman ponders on the rapid advancement of our world through economy’s eyes. Though he admits to the disappointment that can be felt through human achievement, he also conducts an argument through a powerful metaphor at the end of his poem recognizing the importance of human purpose, “Answer… That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.” Whitman argues that every person is contributing to human existence because they are living and breathing. He connects this idea to the rest of his poem by using a question and answer format. At the beginning of his poem he introduces his final argument, “Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,/ Of the endless trains of...

Black Athena

...History 101 World Civilization November, 23, 2015 David Cordis Black Athena In 1987 Martin Bernal published Black Athena, Bernal, a professor of political science and an expert on China uses a wide range of arguments to call into question not only generally accepted views on the origins of Greek civilization but also the very methodological assumptions of the discipline. Bernal’s position, in brief, is that ancient Greece was colonized in the second millennium b.c.e. by Egyptians and Phoenicians and that ancient Greek culture was essentially Levantine, a mixture of Egyptian and Semitic influences. Martin Bernal challenges Eurocentric attitudes by calling into question two of the longest-established explanations for the origins of classical civilization. The Aryan Model, which is current today, claims that Greek culture arose as the result of the conquest from the north by Indo-European speakers, or "Aryans," of the native "pre-Hellenes." The Ancient Model, which was maintained in Classical Greece, held that the native population of Greece had initially been civilized by Egyptian and Phoenician colonists and that additional Near Eastern culture had been introduced to Greece by Greeks studying in Egypt and Southwest Asia. Moving beyond these prevailing models, Bernal proposes a Revised Ancient Model, which suggests that classical civilization in fact had deep roots in Afroasiatic......

Birth Control

...Birth Control 11/18/14 History21 Emma Goldman was one of the first one to speak to speak out on the topic of birth control. Goldman recognized that without birth control a woman, either married or single could not really enjoy sexual freedom and pleasure without the fear and worry of unwanted pregnancy. Few birth controls were available to women in the 1920’s, women were to used condoms, douching and withdrawal, and the most common practiced for birth control was illegal abortion. Also many women died from the effects such as is bleeding and infections and improperly performed abortions. If a woman was wealthy she was most likely to be able to afford an abortion, but if a woman was poor she would not it not be able to afford for this kind of procedure done, so she would make home remedies using herbs or using other methods such as inserting hangers, hooks and knitting needles inside themselves. Emma Goldman, hoped that birth control would helped woman to control their own sexuality and to have an alternative to abortion. Today, we have many safe and a number of effective birth control methods available to us, and not only for women but choices for men as well. There is also a lot of information available to learn which method is best for our body and to fit our needs. Birth control comes in different options from pills that needs to be taken everyday, to injections that are due every 90 days to implants, to Intra-uterine devices that are placed into a women’s......
