The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring Film Review
The Lord of the Rings film series are a trilogy and one of the best epic fantasy mythological films. The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring, directed by Peter Jackson, is a movie based on the novel written by J.R.R.Tolkien. My goal in this paper is to review the heroics of the fictional protagonist Frodo Baggins, describe how his experiences are universal to the humankind, and how Frodo is considered a model by which people can comprehend their experience and cope with enormous and often mysterious task of being human.
Hobbits are usually not considered humans; however they are known to be relatives of the human race of men. They are very timid creatures, and never considered to have great courage to perform amazing achievements under any appropriate situations; however, the heroics demonstrated by the good- hearted Frodo Baggins, the hobbit is remarkable, who ventures out of the Shire for the first time in his life along with his friend Sam, and takes up the responsibility to carry the mystical ring to the fire pits of Mordor and destroy it and its magical powers, on his perilous quest to save the middle earth from Sauron, the Dark Lord. Though, Frodo being a hobbit, and without any mystic powers, he is gifted to withstand the power of the ring better than others. Frodo takes up the initiative and volunteers for the quest that forms the fellowship of the ring. Frodo and the fellowship of heroes encounter many death threatening obstacles during their quest to Mordor; Frodo exhibits his patience and the willingness to face all the problems as he is determined to do away with the ring. As Frodo understands that the negative power of the ring is increasing by the passing time, and it will have corrupt influences…...

... megabits per second. Very briefly, here is how it works: Empty information frames are continuously circulated on the ring. When a computer has a message to send, it inserts a token in an empty frame (this may consist of simply changing a 0 to a 1 in the token bit part of the frame) and inserts a message and a destination identifier in the frame. The frame is then examined by each successive workstation. If the workstation sees that it is the destination for the message, it copies the message from the frame and changes the token back to 0. When the frame gets back to the originator, it sees that the token has been changed to 0 and that the message has been copied and received. It removes the message from the frame. The frame continues to circulate as an "empty" frame, ready to be taken by a workstation when it has a message to send. The token scheme can also be used with bus[->12] topology LANs. The standard for the Token Ring protocol is Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE[->13]) 802.5. The Fiber Distributed-Data Interface (FDDI[->14]) also uses a Token Ring protocol.

Lord Stow

...Lord Stow’s Bakery A Case Analysis May 5, 2012 ATENEO GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS Submitted by: Ryan Buenafe Sonny Carlos Melissa San Juan CASE BACKGROUND AND SYNTHESIS An English man named Andrew Stow and his wife opened the Lord Stow’s Bakery in the 1980s in Coloane Village in Macau. It was a modest small village shop wherein the pastries are supposed to catering hotels in Macau however neighbours insist to buy the good smelling goodies baked in the store. Lord Stow’s Bakery suddenly became famous for one item – Andrew’s egg tart. Macanesians and tourist alike won’t mind going to Coloane just to get a taste of the egg tart and bring some home for their family and friends. The bakery became Macau’s tourist attraction and even can be considered as the country’s trademark. As for Lord Stow’s, the egg tart sales comprise about 60% of the bakery’s revenue. Lord Stow’s business philosophy is to ensure that his produce is always fresh, healthy, natural, and of the highest possible quality. He refused to allow his range to include additives and preservatives which is common to other bakeries. Although reluctant to go international, there were a lot of offers to franchise from people around the globe. The first franchise store opens in Mongkok, Hong Kong in 1997, in Taiwan in 1998, Japan in 1999 and also in the Philippines later that year. Thailand in 2000, South Korea in 2001. There were a lot of hesitations as there were a lot of copy cats of the egg...

Piston Ring

...Advances in Piston Ring Technology Piston rings have one of the toughest jobs inside an engine. They’re slammed up and down between the ring lands thousands of times a minute, they’re subjected to searing temperatures and extreme pressures, and they’re constantly scraping back and forth against the cylinder walls. In spite of all of this, the rings are expected to seal combustion and vacuum, prevent blowby, control oil consumption, keep the cylinder walls lubricated, cool the pistons, and last but certainly not least, last almost forever (150,000 miles plus in a passenger car/light truck engine or up to 1 million miles in a heavy-duty over-the-road diesel)! It’s a demanding list, yet most rings are up to the task and hold up pretty well — assuming the “right” rings are used for the application, the cylinders are finished properly and the rings are installed on the pistons correctly. Obviously, the ring sealing requirements of a high-revving racing engine or a hard-working diesel engine are much more demanding than those of a mild stock engine. So with that in mind, let’s look at some of the latest thinking as it applies to piston ring designs, materials and coatings. Stock Rings With so many late-model engines running thinner, low-tension moly-faced ductile iron and steel rings, one might think cast iron rings are fading into history. They are at the OEM level, but it looks like cast iron rings will be around for a long, long time in the aftermarket. According to...

Right Hand Ring

... be harmful to the women who do not feel that their femininity is attached to their role as wife or mother, but to their work and contributions. Noticing this gap in target audience between actual jewelry owners and workingwomen, De Beers set out to reach the unfamiliar or naive female buyer. A message to the ladies of the world: Right hand rings are not a new invention. Believe it or not, you can wear any ring on any finger on both your hands… I know, crazy! Having said that, the strategic way De Beers speaks about the right hand ring would lead you to believe that this is the birth of a new style. De Beers is saying that it is acceptable for women to by their own jewelry and wear it proudly as a sign of independence and self-reliance, but when some women get so excited to go and purchase a diamond ring, they soon come to reality and say to themselves, “Wait, I work in a cubicle asking people to take a survey over the phone. I CAN’T AFFORD TO BUY DIAMOND JEWLRY!” While this campaign is uplifting and powerful, it’s a bit off from reality. Especially in this economy we live in today. With jobs being scarcer than ever before, more and more are losing incomes and can barely afford bills and necessity items. Maybe it should read: “Women who make over $100k a year and live in a penthouse in Manhattan, RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND.” Thank you De Beers, for drawing the attention to the idea of female financial independence, especially in the jewelry industry. A field that usually targets......

Fellowship of the Ring Essay

...Stefan Palylyk Mr. McDougal English II H 12/3/12 Important Themes in Fellowship of the Ring: Religion’s Impact on Imagination Throughout history, religion has hugely impacted such things as art, science, literature, etc. J.R.R. Tolkien, author of the Fellowship of the Ring, is a person who represents his Catholic beliefs within his writing at numerous times. Since his religious beliefs had a profound impact on his life, Tolkien alludes to many things in the novel. He symbolizes Catholic figures such as Jesus, the apostles, and themes such as the genealogy mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew. Since the Catholic faith is mostly centered around Jesus Christ, Tolkien finds a way to represent Jesus in certain characters in the story. The most notable character that fits the role of the Lord and Savior is Frodo. One of the first aspects of Frodo as the Christ figure is his journey from his home in the Shire throughout middle-earth. Frodo’s mission is to protect the ring from evil and carry it to Mordor and only when he leaves his home is he able to show who he really is. This is much like Jesus’ mission to leave his home village of Nazareth to proclaim the word of God and express the connection between God and people. Frodo also has supernatural power in the form of the ring like Jesus’ power inherited from God. Frodo’s power from the ring is undoubtedly an extreme capability. The power of the ring is described by Gandalf when he says, "A mortal, Frodo, who keeps one of the...

Gyges’ Ring

...GYGES’ RING Glaucon's initial speech in Plato’s book II of the Republic tells “The story of Gyges the Lydian”. Glaucon steps in when Thrasymachus has been silenced by Socrates and uses the story to defend the opinion that people don't practice justice for itself, but only because they fear what would happen to them if they don't. On this paper I will provide an example of a situation in which a just person may choose to do the unjust in order to get what he/she desires, if he/she would not be punished for doing so. Maya was a great high school volleyball player, during her junior year she was invited to spend a summer in California playing volleyball with girls from all around the world. All the girls in this program were very skilled and talented, so Maya did not stand out as much as she used to. During her stay, she made a lot of friends, but she had become extremely close friends with one girl in particular, Joy. Joy was by far the most athletic girl in the program. Although her technique was not so unique, she had amazing reflexes and she could out jump and out run everyone else. Joy had no plans to play for any Division I Universities in the U.S. ; she already had a contract coming up the following year to play for a professional team in Europe, and the purpose of this program for her was only to achieve more playing time and experience, not recruitment. Maya had become amazed by how well Joy performed every day, so one day she talked to Joy about her dreams of...

Mantra Ring

...Thumb Rings: The thumbs in palmistry are about self-control. On the active hand (the right hand if a person’s right-handed) a folded-in thumb shows hesitation in applying oneself to worldly ambitions. On the passive hand, on a more personal level, a bent-inward thumb shows inner conflicts.  If you’re engaged in personal trans-formation, wear a narrow, silver ring (for higher guidance and strength) with a milled surface (for industry and effort) on the passive hand’s thumb. This will strengthen your resolve and induce greater powers of self-mastery. Any new challenge, be it losing weight or sticking to your morning yoga class will be easier.  Index finger: The index finger is known to palmists as the ‘mirror’ finger. It’s ruler is Jupiter and it’s about self-reflection. A big ring on the active index finger shows self-esteem issues, and a frustrated need for power and recognition. This is particularly true if there’s a large gemstone. In portraits of powerful, ruling figures, like Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and Napoleon, large rings are visible on both index fingers.  Tin is the metal of Jupiter, so if you lack self-confidence, wear a ring of base metal on the index finger of your active hand to reinforce and enhance the sense of self. Ensure the ring has no gems and has flat, faceted sides (for modesty, humility and all-round recognition). You’ll feel better immediately. Visualize the kind of personal qualities you want frequently while turning the ring slowly with the...

Ethernet Token Ring

...[Ethernet or Token Ring] [Ricky Clark] [IT/242] Due: [6/20/2014] [Sokly Vann] Saguaro Federal has mainframes for all of its banks and businesses. Must the company use the Ethernet or Token Ring protocol? Explain your choice. Why is this choice appropriate? In this particular situation I would have to say that the token ring protocol should be used for its banks and businesses and the reason that I say this is because the banks and business seem to not all be located in the same building they are spread out. In Token Ring LAN’s each station is connected to a wiring concentrator called a multistation access unit using UTP or STP. The access method which is used on a Token Ring is called token which is a special data packet that is generated by the first computer that comes online in a token ring network With this being said this seems the most reasonable and secure because the computers cannot operate without a token from the other. XYZ Technology Consultants has offices on the second, third, and fourth floors of the office building it occupies. Must the company use the Ethernet or Token Ring protocol? Explain your choice. Why is this choice appropriate? In the XYZ technology consultants situation I would suggest an Ethernet protocol. The reason that I came to this conclusion was due in part of the company being located in one building on various floors so everything is central. Ethernet is the most used networking that is available because of the pricing......

Lord Shang

...The Legalists and their influence on Qin administration During the Warring States period, seven dominant states were in consistent struggles to take power over the others. Even though they all put much emphasis on military and warfare, the state of Qin was the one who concluded the period with the wars of conquest, annexing other contender states through exceptionally cruel administration. On the background of the rise of Qin existed the two most eminent administrators, Lord Shang and Han Fei zi, whose philosophies are demonstrated as Legalism. The Legalists emphasized an establishment of effective institutional structures based on impersonal and objective norms and standards: “laws, administrative regulations, clearly defined rules of promotion and demotion, and the like” (Watkins). Through the strict legislation, the Legalists “sought to attain a ‘rich [and empowered] state with powerful army’” (Pines). Adopting their philosophies and practicing them through reformation, the Qin administration could conquer its competitors; we can recognize the influence of Legalism on the state administration by analyzing the laws of Qin before the empire and comparing them to the philosophies of the two prominent Legalists. During the regime of Duke Xiao, the state of Qin went through a series of reforms successfully conducted by Lord Shang, and the characteristics of the reformation are well reflected on the laws of the state. First and foremost, Lord Shang emphasized on a powerful...
