In chapter 5 of the book " Journey Into God's Word" discusses historical-cultural context. I thought it was a very interesting read. When people approach the Bible without concern for historical-cultural context the reader can get confused. The Bible was written many centuries ago to let people know what God was saying. If you read the Bible just to read it and without understanding its true meaning, you would absolutely have no clue on what is going on in the verses. So in order to have a good understanding you have to dig deep and open your mind about the time, place, and the author who was writing it. To be honest in my own life, I really have no experiences to share because I’m not a big reader. I believe in God but never really took the time to read the Bible to get very in dept with the scripture. If I had to give and example of an historical- cultural context that shed light on a biblical text it would be the Psalm 23. This scripture gives you several background descriptions that mean more than geographical features. Today we live in a microwaveable world where we want everything in an instant. We don’t want to take the time to read and think about things. Psalm 23, is the perfect biblical text to persuade people to study the discussion board topic. It covers every emotion that a person could possible go through in a day from trust, fear, confidence, and…...

Historical Narrative

...Historical Narrative Stepping off the plane my uneasy stomach started to settle. I don’t know how many times I have made the 7 hour flight, ever since I had gotten married and moved away I had never gotten use to the turbulence on the flight home to visit. This time my vacation would be different though. It was 1989 and I was traveling back to visit my family in La chorrera, Panama. In 1989 Manuel Noriega was the dictator and a former CIA spy for the United States where I now live. But somewhere down the line though doing good, was just not in Noriega sights anymore, it is said that he started laundering money through France and Drug trafficking through the United States. Since I no longer lived in Panama I only knew what my parents and sibling’s often told me. My husband on the other hand knew more mostly because he was a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I would soon learn from my visit why everyone was not pleased with Noriega. When I arrived at the house my parents lived at I was surprised how everything had changed from my visit last year. There was no government, everything was under military control. And the military was controlled by Noriega. People were dying, disappearing, and stepping down from power it seem Noriega and only the people that supported him were in high places of power. At the time I didn’t think much of it, I hadn’t seen my family in a year and nothing was going to stop us from having a good time. My husband took my family and I...

Historical Fashion

...Historical Fashion Fashion is another form of art showing a way to be creative and a way to express ourselves. This expression can be through the sketching of a design, the creation of the design, or the wearing of the design. No matter how we look at fashion, this particular art is constantly changing right before our eyes. As you watch a person walk down the street and you view their attire, you are doing the same thing walking around an art gallery viewing portraits. You are looking at someone’s passion for design. You are viewing their creation in different mediums. Using different textures in the art of fashion is like using oil or watercolor in painting. with showing the connection between fashion and architecture. The design of clothing can be compared to the designing of a sculpture. The sculpture of human figure such as a King or Pharaoh relates to that time period, or period style, just as a piece of clothing relates to and era or time period. The design of clothing varies from each of these time periods. The “casual” clothing designed in the Middle Ages 800-1200 of the Romanesque Period was of long loose garments. Just as in a vertical line on a painting they stood tall in these long gowns and extended their dress by wearing tall head dresses. The colors they would wear seem to be of a dark, dull nature being mostly of blues, greens, and browns. Both men and women dressed in garments that were almost identical to each other...

Historical Perspective

...Historical Perspective Essay NUR 518 Jane Cash Historical Perspective Essay There are many nursing theorist that have influenced the development of nursing research. Nursing Theorist have provided the interrelated frameworks of ideas which focus on nursing practice. Through clinical application and information, nursing science adds relevance to the care of patients in health and disease. Nursing theories provide guidance to researchers and educate nurses (Keefe, 2011) to look at different approaches in caring for their patients. This paper will show how one theorist most influenced the development of nursing research. The 1990's was the decade for research and expanded nursing theory. This period elevated the use of evidence-based and best practices in nursing (George, 2011). Transcultural Nursing was introduced in 1992 by Madeline Leininger. Leininger’s theory says that the goal of nursing care is to” provide care congruent with cultural values, beliefs, and practices’ (Alligood & Tomey, 2010). The cultural and sociocultural factors of each person affects how they take on factors, meanings, and expressions of health and caring systems. This theory has wide applicability in different settings. The interest is focused on nurses becoming culturally competent so they can provide appropriate nursing care to a growing culturally/ethnically diverse patient population. Nursing paradigms show a clear relationship among the existing theoretical works in nursing...

Historical Costing

...http://hbr.org/2013/03/why-fair-value-is-the-rule/ar/2 For the past two decades, fair value accounting—the practice of measuring assets and liabilities at estimates of their current value—has been on the ascent. This marks a major departure from the centuries-old tradition of keeping books at historical cost. It also has implications across the world of business, because the accounting basis—whether fair value or historical cost—affects investment choices and management decisions, with consequences for aggregate economic activity. The argument for fair value accounting is that it makes accounting information more relevant. However, historical cost accounting is considered more conservative and reliable. Fair value accounting was blamed for some dubious practices in the period leading up to the Wall Street crash of 1929, and was virtually banned by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission from the 1930s through the 1970s. The 2008 financial crisis brought it under fire again. Some scholars and practitioners have connected its proliferation in accounting-based performance metrics to the actions of bankers and other managers during the run-up to the crisis. Specifically, as asset prices rose through 2008, the fair value gains on certain securitized assets held by financial institutions were recognized as net income, and thus sometimes used to calculate executive bonuses. And after asset prices began falling, many financial executives blamed fair value markdowns for...

Historical Exploration

...1.1 Historical Exploration Digitization of Information Digitization is the representation of an object, image, sound, document or a signal by a discrete set of points or samples. The result is called digital representation. Strictly speaking, digitizing means simply capturing an analog signal in digital form. For a document the term means to trace the document image or capture the "corners" where the lines end or change direction. The term digitization is often used when diverse forms of information, such as text, sound, image or voice, are converted into a single binary code. Computers predate to the Digital Age. Prior to the 1950s, computers were analog, using vacuum tubes. Later, vacuum tubes were used in conjunction with diodes. Like the digital computers that came later, analog computers used binary logic, but instead of being directly controlled by a program consisting of 1s and 0s, the state of the vacuum tube was changed by a change in voltage. The voltage change was analogous to a 1 (power on) versus a 0 (power off). In 1956, MIT built the TX0, the first general-purpose, programmable computer to use transistors. Digitization occurs in two parts: Discretization and Quantization. Discretization is the reading of an analog signal A, and, at regular time intervals (or frequency), sampling the value of the signal at the point. Each such reading is called a sample and may be considered to have infinite precision at this stage. Quantization is when the samples are...

EXCEPTION TO THE HISTORICAL COST BASIS OF ACCOUNT REVALUATION OF PROPERTY PLANT EQUIPMENT Under IFRS it is acceptable, but not required to restate the values of property, plant and equipment to a fair value; fair value is the amount for which an asset could be exchanged or a liability settled between knowledgeable, willing partners in an arm’s length transaction. Such a policy must be applied to all asset of a particular class. It would therefore be acceptable for an entity to revolve free hold properties every three (3) years. The revaluation must be made with sufficient regularity to ensure that the carrying value does not differ materially from market value in subsequent years. A surplus on revaluation would be recovered as a reserve movement not as income. DERIVATIVE FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT Under IFRS and US GAAP derivative financial instruments are stated at fair value (mark to market) with movement recorded in the income statement.

Spreading to different sections of the population resulted in different dialects that became unrecognizable to everyone. Later in the century there were few people who were considered to be literate and they are the ones who help higher positions. RUNNING HEADER: Historical Latin language was the way of communication in the Twelfth century, having a higher demand for communication and the official language of the government, business, education and religion within Western France. With Latin being the living language of the times borrowing dialects from other areas, made it harder for locals in one area to be understood in another location. Just like with any language there are differences from one area to the next. The readings were intended and composed for a specific audience; the chivalric writing of the High Middle Ages was built on the earlier traditions, while integrating ancient roots based on the literature that was sung by the courtly bards. Latin was mainly influenced by the Greek; however Western Europe had a big influence from so far away. This was back in the Golden Age ranging from 70 BCE to 14CE, with poets and prose writers became a huge part in the heritage and the educational heritage from this time.

Historical Development

...Historical Development Response Christina Najar CJS/200 William Patton 05/18/2012 Historical Development Response In the United States people have held individuals accountable for their actions throughout history. It may have been by hanging individuals that were found guilty or some other type of punishment for the crime that seemed suitable for their actions. In today’s society the justice system does not condone to hangings and blood baths, the justice system today relies on a dual court system, the state court and the federal court. These courts decide guilt or innocence and impose sentences on the convicted. There are different levels in the United States court system and they all dispense justice and help ensure that officials in the justice system work within the law when carrying out their duties (Schmalleger, 2011). The dual court system is a result of a general agreement among the nation’s founders about the need for individual states to retain significant legislative authority and judicial autonomy separate from federal control (Schmalleger, 2011). The original American colonies each had its own system for resolving disputes. In 1629, Massachusetts Bay Colony created a General court, a governor, deputy, 18 assistants and 118 elected officials. The laws were made by legislature and the court. As the colonies grew throughout time so did the court system and by 1776 the colonies established a full functioning court system. The state court...
