Why does Mary Rowlandson reveal a conflicted sensibility toward native Americans and to what extent is that conflict rooted in puritans values? Mary Rowlandson’s reading about her captivity by Native Americans reveals her brutal experience of slavery put in relation to God and the Bible. She sees her capture as a proof from God that she must endure with faith; only in doing so would she survive and remain a true Christian woman suitable for Puritan society. She has to resist to hunger and violence and cold and frustration just because of God and in order to join salvation through pain and redemption from all of her sins; because God is the only One who can save Christians’ believers or punish them through endless pain. There are a lot of continual references depict the good of God allowing for her capture; “it was easy for me to see how righteous it was with God to cut off the thread of my life and cast me out of His presence forever. Yet the Lord still showed mercy to me”. Rowlandson as puritan woman never could cast in doubt the benevolence of God, so everything happened to her, it was a Divine’s drawing and she had to overcome all the difficulties as well as she could. Even when the Americans were close behind the Natives whom she was with, the Americans not crossing the river to follow them was viewed by Rowlandson as intentional and good by God‘s will: “God did not give them courage or activity to go over after us. We were not ready for so great a mercy as victory and deliverance”. She also wrote about the Sabbath Day: “when the Sabbath came they bade me go to work. I told them it was the Sabbath day, and desired them to let me rest, and told them I would do as much more tomorrow; to which they answered me they would break my face. And here I cannot but take notice of the strange providence of God in preserving the heathen”. She describes Native Americans as wild people with no care of others, as sinner, as non-believers.

Failure to State a Claim

...sufficient 10 foundation for such an award.   1-9 Punitive Damages § 9.2 Mukeshia’s parents. Plaintiffs sought compensatory and punitive damages. Defendants answered, asserting affirmative defenses, and simultaneously moved to dismiss the complaint pursuant to G.S. § 1A-1, Rule 12(b)(6) on grounds the complaint failed to state a claim upon which relief could be granted. Plaintiffs subsequently submitted to a voluntary dismissal of their claims against defendant Brenner, moved to strike certain of the affirmative defenses asserted by the remaining defendants, and moved for partial summary judgment. N.C. Gen.Stat. 1:253 Because this appeal arises from defendant's motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim, “we treat plaintiff ['s] factual allegations as true.   The question then becomes whether the allegations of the complaint, if treated as true, are sufficient to state a claim upon which relief can be granted under some legal theory.”  Thompson v. Waters, 351 N.C. 462, 462-63, 526 S.E.2d 650, 650 (2000) (citations omitted). Dismissal under Rule 12(b)(6) is proper when one of the following three conditions is satisfied:  (1) the complaint on its face reveals that no law supports the plaintiff's claim;  (2) the complaint on its face reveals the absence of facts sufficient to make a good claim;  or (3) the complaint discloses some fact that necessarily defeats the plaintiff's claim.

Smith St.  Washington, D.C. 22222 Dear Ms. Smith, I am writing to inquire whether the Xavier Foundation would invite a proposal from the Virtual Community Group, Inc., requesting an investment of $50,000 per year over two years to support our Enterprise 2000 initiative. This grant would provide part of the funds needed for us to train at least 1200 low-income entrepreneurs in rural New Hampshire in the computer skills they need to create sustainable businesses as we enter the twenty-first century. Your literature indicates that the Xavier Foundation is searching for innovative ideas to improve the lives of the rural poor; we believe Enterprise 2000 falls well within your area of interest. We believe that broadly-implemented technical skills programs such as Enterprise 2000 have the potential to transform the lives of many struggling entrepreneurs, and change the economic landscape of impoverished rural communities. Unlike many poverty alleviation initiatives, all of the Virtual Community Group programs are predicated on the assumption that these entrepreneurs already have 90% of what it takes to compete in the marketplace -- intelligence, ambition, initiative, and talent. After two years of experimentation and program development, the Virtual Community Group has fashioned a superb, easily replicable model...

Rhonda Clark

...Overview The Smith Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to fund public awareness campaigns and research programs about eye care. The foundation was founded over forty years ago with a multimillion-dollar endowment from industrialist and philanthropist Charlie Smith. Currently the foundation is operating on an annual budget of slightly less than $1,500,000.00 (Santora, 2006, p. 362). Their newest chief executive officer (CEO) is Dr. Rhonda Clark, an organizational outsider with no work experience within the foundation. Although only offered a one-year appointment, Clark has great academic credentials in the form of a PhD in political science and policy analysis from a major U.S. West Coast university, as well as a graduate school professorship. The 54-year-old also has an enviable amount of management experience in the nonprofit and public sectors. In the last thirty years, Clark has held positions as a director or research for a major statewide political office holder, the director or planning in a large metropolitan hospital, and the director of programs at a small foundation (Santora, 2006, p. 363). Very early in her new position as head of the foundation, Clark set about quickly learning the key decision makers and stakeholders on the board and in the larger community. She also established her initiatives at a board meeting where she detailed the major elements of her latest proposal. Realizing she did not have the full support of the entire board,......

Smith manufactures electronic components and sells these products to manufacturers of cell phones, e-readers, and tablets. The Smith family founded the company, which originally manufactured components for radios, in the 1930s. The grandchildren of the founder had no interest in active management of the company, and it went public in the 1990s under different management. Your firm has audited Smith for ten years, and has always issued standard, unqualified opinions for both the financial statements and internal controls during this time. New federal regulations concerning the disposal of manufacturing byproducts will impact Smith’s manufacturing process this year by limiting Smith’s ability to sell these byproducts to other companies. Furthermore, the company will have to incur costs to implement new methods of waste disposal. In combination, these issues related to the new regulations are material. To keep up with the rapid advancement of technological developments in its industry, Smith has invested heavily in R&D over the last few years. The R&D has led to several new products that are ready to be included in the manufacturing process this year. The company believes these products......

Employement Law

...Introduction The aim of this paper is to forward legal advice to Ms Kalinda Sharma with regards to her rights in relation to her employment with Florrick Designs. It will also provide her with advice as to what action she should be in place to take, in accordance with her grievances with the employer which include discrimination on the grounds of no reasonable adjustments being made as to her disability, as well as direct discrimination on the basis that disability. Preliminary Issues Firstly it will be necessary to establish Ms Sharma as an employee. Article 3 of the Employment Rights (NI) Order 1996 defines an employee as an individual who works under a contract of employment. Although this does not give an extensive insight as to her status, it can also be inferred from her considerable employment with Florrick Designs over 12 years, that she is indeed an employee. It has already been established and is recognised that Ms Sharma is disabled within the definition of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (hereafter DDA 1995). It must also be established that the employer was aware of the disability of the claimant and that it left her at a substantial disadvantage in comparison to her non-disabled colleagues with regards to retaining employment. This should not be an issue here, due to the fact that Ms Sharma has worked at Florrick Designs for 12 years and was employed there when her accident occurred which resulted in the disability. She also had to take two years off...

Bridging the Two Worlds

...what became an even stranger story and an embarrassing episode for the major Canadian company. In November 2011, Cynthia Vanier, a Canadian woman from mount Forest, Ontario, was included in a group of people arrested in Mexico and later jailed for 18months, for allegedly trying to smuggle Saadi Gaddafi, son of Muammar Gaddafi, the President of Libya, and his family into Mexico on false passports. Authorities claimed that part of the plot included the purchase of a condo and house for the Gaddafi family by Ms. Vanier, a contractor for SNC-Lavalin. Ms. Vanier denied the charges saying that the condo was for her and her husband. She said she had been hired by the company to report on the security situation in Libya where SNCLavalin had significant investments. Saadi Gaddafi also had connections to SNC-Lavalin and to Canada. He was hosted by the company when he traveled to Canada for English classes, and he also bought a condo in Toronto. SNC-Lavalin initially denied they had hired Ms. Vanier, but later admitted they had asked her to assess whether company employees, who had been evacuated during the civil war in Libya, could return to their jobs in the country. Matters only got worse for the company when it came to light that $56 million dollars were missing and that mystery payments were made to an unnamed agent of the company. At that time, the CEO, Pierre Duhaime, abruptly resigned and the Board of Directors called in the police to investigate. The Company Chairman, Gwyn......

...Legal Memo To: Attorney John Smith, Esquire From: Paralegal Re: Westen Vs. Jane Date: March 18, 2002 This memorandum follows your recent assignment where in you requested that I contact Mr. Mark Vision, who witnessed our client Mary Jane’s accident, and determine where Mr. Vision was in association with the accident, the approximate speed of the other vehicle, the weather conditions and any other information that would be useful in either shifting liability or alleging contributory negligence on the part of plaintiff/driver. Analysis of the Interview I contacted Mr. Mark Vision on March 4, 2002. He is an African American male, very tall with a slim build. He wore business casual clothes and he seemed a little nervous, but he was very respectful and well mannered. He was very forthcoming with all of the questions he was asked in the interview. He seemed very truthful and reliable and answered every question with a matter-of- fact attitude. He remembered the entire accident very vividly. He would make a favorable witness for our case, because he feels that Ms. Jane is not guilty. Mr. Vision advised me that he was on the way to work at his part-time job Saturday March 18, 2002. The reason he did not give a statement at the time of the accident, was because he is the Manager and had to be at the company early to let the other workers in and didn’t want to keep them waiting. But Mr. Vision did give the Police his contact information. It was raining......

Virginia Pollard

...conditions of Ms. Pollard’s employment and constitute an abusive working environment. Teddy’s Supplies can be held liable for the harassment of its supervisory employees because the harassment was pervasive enough to support an inference that the employer had "knowledge, or constructive knowledge" of it; under traditional agency principles Mr. King and the other male workers were acting as the agents for Teddy’s Supplies when they committed the harassing acts. Two recent Supreme Court cases have set forth a new test for determining when an employer is vicariously liable for a hostile work environment created by a supervisor. In Burlington Industries v. Ellerth, and Faragher v. Boca Raton, the Supreme Court held that “[a]n employer is subject to vicarious liability to a victimized employee for an actionable hostile work environment created by a supervisor with immediate (or successively higher) authority over the employee.” The record establishes that Mr. King was Ms. Pollard’s supervisor and that he had immediate or successively higher authority over her. If Ms. Pollard files a claim with the EEOC and if they agree with her assertion of harassment, she can then sue for lost wages, benefits, reinstatement, and attorneys' fees. Compensatory damages (damages for wages and emotional distress) are "capped" by Title VII and the amount allowed per employee will vary depending on the size of the employer. In the case of Smith vs. Magnus, the court ruled in favor of the......
