John Paul

...A few months after his election, Pope John Paul II began his worldwide travels. Unlike the previous Popes, who preferred to stay near the Vatican, he was the first Pope in the history of the pontificate to travel throughout the world (“Pope,” 2006). In an interview with reporters early in his reign as Pope, John Paul announced the goal of his papacy, "The Pope cannot remain a prisoner of the Vatican. I want to go to everybody...from the nomads of the steppes to the monks and nuns in their convents...I want to cross the threshold of every home” (“Indepth: His Own Words,” 2005). Because of this announcement, his trips were groundbreaking news. His first stops were in the Dominican Republic and Mexico, then on to his native Poland. The main theme of his speeches emphasized human rights. Worldwide news coverage of his travels allowed television viewers of all faiths, including me, to see how many hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions, of people would gather for his visits. It was during these international visits, particularly to the countries under Communist rule, that the Pope would focus his speeches on freedom and human rights. As the people came, they slowly began to realize they would not be punished for gathering to see him or for listening to his speeches. Crowds of followers began to build as they came to realize that they had a right to be free citizens (Papal Years, 2000). As a result of this realization, the Pope’s popularity grew to immense proportions. He...

...John is an37 year old out of work alcoholic, who recently lost his wife and kids from divorce. John is a 5 foot 11 inches slender man with slick black hair and a musty looking beard as if he hadn’t shaved in a few weeks. Thick black leather jacket and blue jeans and brown boots. One night while driving out and about he pulls into a small town local bar about 10 miles east of his home in San Antonio, TX. He pulled up in his 1989 ford pickup truck with rusty body and bent bumper and smoke filled the air with black smoke from the tucks tailpipe. The bar is an old style bar with the A in the word BAR flickering on and off as to indicate the light is close to going out. John walks into the bar and asks the un-polite bartender for the best scotch he has. The bartender pulls out a glass puts some scotch in the glass, looks at John and says “Here you go” he mumbled. John sat there continuing drinking heavily. “What’s your problem fellow” a low voiced asked from a couple stools down said a man. “Who wants to know” said john “Im Jim just trying to help out” “Well Jim life right now is just going down the hole.” “Like what...” “Well I just got canned from my law firm my wife left me and took my kid and im an alcoholic.

John Dalton

...Kyle Warmuth Physics 2010 Research Paper John Dalton John Dalton contributed a lot towards advancing in chemistry and in physics. His most well known accomplishment was his work on atomic theory. This theory was based on his studies with gases and their reactions with each other. This theory was the most important discovery of its time, leading the way to what we know chemistry to be today. Dalton also is known for Law of Multiple Proportions, and Law of Partial Pressures. Chemistry was not Dalton’s first interest though; he was first interested in the weather and color blindness, after considering law and medicine (wikipedia). John Dalton was born in Eaglesfield, Cumberland, England, on September 6 1766. His family was Quaker; he was a son of a weaver. He joined his older brother Jonathan and ran a Quaker school in Kendal at the age of 15 (wikipedia). The school taught languages, 21 mathematics, and science courses, at one point they had 60 students. Though the school was popular they did not make any money, so for extra income Dalton wrote answers to “ladies questions” in magazines (Blamire). After teaching for a while he considered taking up medicine or law but his relatives did not show enthusiasm for either subject. He then moved to Manchester where he became a teacher of mathematics and natural philosophy at the “New College.” He got this position through a blind philosopher and polymath John Gough; Dalton owes much of his scientific knowledge...

John Lennon

...To start with I’ll talk about John Lennon as a member of the Beatles. Then I’ll move on to his solo career, his political and peace activism and after getting the general idea of his work I would like us to have a look on his influence upon his generation and maybe ours too. John Lennon became famous as a member and founder of the widely known band: The Beatles. Together with Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they managed to become the most commercially successful band of the 20th century. During the 1960s, there was even a term used to describe their fans’ intense frenzy towards them: The Beatlemania (photos). All members contributed to the band. But at the time, Paul overshadowed the rest of the members. According to the fans, Paul was the cute one, Ringo was the funny one, George was the quite one and finally John was the intelligent one. The Beatles achieved mainstream success in the UK during the beginning of 1963 and in 1965 they received recognition from the British Establishment when they were appointed Members of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours. The USA VS John Lennon: By that time John and the rest of the Beatles had already become idols due to their musical geniuses. But being an idol is not only being adored but also being hated by people. I don’t think is possible for any idol to only be adored. When your face, your ideology is exposed to the world you are vulnerable to criticism, therefore to love but also...

John Updike

...Conformity vs. Individualism The short story by John Updike, A & P, is about a young man named Sammy. Throughout the story, Sammy is trying to determine where he belongs in society by using his family and the individuals shopping at his work to figure out what he wants out of life and what he doesn’t want out of life. Sammy works as a cashier at a small town grocery store called A & P somewhere in New England. From the start of the story he comes off as a sarcastic teenager who observes and analyzes everything and everybody. The whole story starts when three girls walk into the grocery store in nothing but their bathing suits. Right away, Sammy is obsessed with these girls, going into detail with what they are wearing, how they are walking, and even by the way they wear their hair. It seems purely sexual at first. For example, he goes into extreme detail about the chunky ones ‘cans’ and Queenie’s breast. He describes all three of them but really focuses on their leader, Queenie. He illustrates her as a very attractive and confident girl who has no problem walking against the crowd and convincing her friends that it is completely acceptable to go into a small town grocery store in their bathing suits. As the story progresses you get this sense that he envies her and the confidence she has to go against the social norms that the society has put there. His jealously becomes even clearer when his manager, Lengel, approaches the girls regarding their attire. He...

John

...Christian Alonzo English 1302 Professor Duncan 16 June 2015 Topic Proposal: Religious affairs in A good Man Is Hard to find In Flannery O Connors southern gothic short story, “a good man is hard to find” the protagonists that are presented seem to be in a gloomy and fragile relationship in what seems to be your cliché American family. The family as you would expect from O’Connor’s writing is in its own way corrupt and what many catholic enthusiasts would say, need Jesus. The Grandmother being the worst case of them all and in the story shows examples of gluttony and lust, two major sins in the Roman Catholic faith. These sins are the eventual downfall of the entire family. This essay will view the repercussions that occur for lathering in a life of sin and argue that salvation can be disguised in many ways even as malicious at times. It will utilize research directly from the psychoanalytic concept, traumas, and realizations of the few characters who get passed they’re own demons and come to a self-religious realization. Additionally, the essay will pursue the relationships between the grandmother, the misfit, and the son, John Wesley and his Mother and their last minute, virtuous moments right before Gods jurisdiction is handed upon them. John Wesley realizes that his actions anytime before that moment were inexcusable towards his mother, but now it is too late as he is murdered in the woods and the grandmother’s having her salvation just before the Misfit eradicates...

...00-BBR_18.2.book Page 209 Friday, September 12, 2008 12:00 PM Bulletin for Biblical Research 18.2 (2008) 209–231 “The Disciple Jesus Loved”: Witness, Author, Apostle— A Response to Richard Bauckham’s Jesus and the Eyewitnesses andreas j. köstenberger and stephen o. stout southeastern baptist theological seminary Richard Bauckham’s Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2006) makes a persuasive argument that the Gospels display eyewitness testimony and thus renews the quest for the identity of the Beloved Disciple as the author of the Fourth Gospel. While Bauckham attributes this Gospel to “the presbyter John” mentioned by Papias, the authors of this study show that the patristic evidence more likely seems to support the authorship of John the apostle and that the literary device of inclusio in the Fourth Gospel, astutely observed by Bauckham, also favors the authorship of John the son of Zebedee. Key Words: Fourth Gospel, Beloved Disciple, John, authorship, apostle, Zebedee, John the Elder, Papias, Eusebius, Muratorian Fragment, Polycrates, Irenaeus, Bauckham Introduction Recent years have witnessed a significant number of publications on the identity of “the disciple Jesus loved” in John’s Gospel. The ever more daring proposals have included identifications of this figure as diverse as the apostle Thomas, Mary Magdalene, Lazarus, James the son of Zebedee, and even the Samaritan woman, among others...

John Deere

...In the John Deere case Scott Nolan has faced a challenge when he accepted the job. His supervisor has requested him to identify and justify which suppliers to integrate in the product development phase, and specify how to construct the interactions with the chosen suppliers. The target of Scott Nolan is to have the new plant up and running smoothly by the target date of July 1998. The market was growing about 15-20% per year and was projected to reach $1.2 billion, or 60,000 units by year 2000-2001. In 1995-1996, John Deere had been outsourcing their manufacturing to Holland, although New Holland produced their own competing skid loaders. New Holland had agreed to sell only the excess capacity to manufacture the same product. Since the market demand was increasing John Deere needed to make more Skid Loaders, although New Holland refused to do so, in return, John Deere had decided to design and manufacture their own skid loaders directly, and become the leading manufacture of Skid Loaders. A solution for John Deere to manufacture directly is to build a new building in Knoxville, TN. In April of 1996 JD in invested in a $35 million site to directly design and manufacture the Skid Loader. By taking back the manufacturing and design of the skid loader, John Deere can really take control of their costs and profits. Since New Holland was a main competitor, John Deere can now differentiate their product from others in the market. John will be able to make their design......

John Lock

.... Locke states that natural law simply demands that punishment fit the crime--a person in the state of nature can redress any crime to discourage the offender from repeating it. Locke concludes by noting that all people are in a state of nature until a special compact or agreement between them (which he promises to describe later) makes them members of a political society. Commentary In the Second Treatise, Locke rises above the specifics of the political situation described in the Introduction to outline a coherent theory of liberal political government, based on the sanctity of individual property and the state of nature. In Locke's state of nature, no person has control over another, natural law governs and renders all people equal, and every individual holds the executive power of natural law. Locke's theory includes many assumptions. First is the assumption of a system of morality--the natural law derives from a theory of justice, a set of rights. No one would have any "rights" at all in the absence of a moral code applicable to human actions, nor would there be any standard of "just" punishment. Locke frequently uses the term "rights" and appeals to conscience and "calm reason", all of which reflect his assumptions about justice and morality. Since this is our first encounter with the text, let's take this as an entry-point to talking a bit about Locke's writing itself, his syntax, word choice, and so on. Oddly enough, John Locke, the great Treatise writer and...

John Locke

...John Locke John locke was a English liberalist, believing that no man is without liberty or equality. He also supported the rights to which a man could have. His philosophy was to believe that man could not be controlled by another man; only you can control yourself and the power of nature. Locke was born in august 29, 1632. In 1647, he attended the Westminster school of London, later earning his bachelor’s degree and master’s degree. In oxford he had earned a bachelor of medicine in 1674. One day a man named Anthony Ashley Cooper, 1st earl of Shaftesbury to get his liver treated. He apparently met Locke and was thoroughly impressed at his skill in medicine, asking John to later become an attendant for the earl, earning his right to be called a doctor of sorts to Cooper. Later Locke had performed surgery with several others and saved Cooper from a life-threatening liver infection. This later influenced his life as “thinker”. Shaftesbury later became lord chancellor in 1672, After that John Locke spent a lot of years traveling around Europe and came back to England in 1679, and having written the Two Treatises of government, which argued that absolute monarchy is unjust and wrong, but these views and ideas of his proved to be revolutionary. Later being spied and questioned for the assassination attempt of the current king – King Charles II of England, he fled to the Netherlands in 1683 and then continued his writings and revised quite a large sum of it, including the......
