Narrative Essay: A Day in the Life

I have decided to become a flesh made female, or better say a young lady, who lived with her family in the house or better say the room during Tudor times in England. I have chosen 16th century England for my paper, as I consider this country as well as the period to be very important to the Renaissance epoch and to all changes that occurred later. It was the period of changes in almost all aspects of people’s lives- economical, religious, cultural and political. Entrepreneurship was developing, as well as mechanisms of commerce. But still there were many poor people, and that was a great problem of that time.

May, 1532

I woke up just when the sun came up. My younger brother was sleeping next to me. I was so happy to see him alive as two my younger sisters and little brother died last year. Sisters died of hunger and brother had some disease that was incompatible with life, as my mother told me. Continue reading

Theory of Dream Interpretation Essay

The problem of the legacy of the Enlightenment traditionally attracted the attention of many specialists, including the most significant ones which made a great contribution in the development of modern science. One of such specialists is Sigmund Freud who could not ignore the legacy of the Enlightenment in his works, even though it was not the main goal of his researches. In this respect, it is worthy of mention his theory of dream interpretation which seems to be the most closely related to Freud’s views on the legacy of the Enlightenment and, at the same time, represents a profound work on the problem of dream and its perception by human beings.

On analyzing his theory of dream interpretation, it is primarily necessary to point out that Sigmund Freud has developed his theory of dream interpretation at the epoch when such concepts as superego and id have not been clearly defined yet and which, nonetheless, could be found in his work dedicated to the problem of dream research. Moreover, the concepts of superego and id are directly linked to Freud’s views on the Enlightenment. Continue reading

Essay on Americanism

While anti-Americanism has deep roots in the Arab world, the situation is quite unusual in Iran, where the United States has in last several years become extremely popular. Of all the governments in the Middle East, the Iranian administration remains the most firm in confronting the United States. Not only does Iran not receive U.S. aid, but its regime is an enemy of America. However, this country, according to the recent opinion palls, has a significant amount of pro-Americanism.

The countries of Iran and America have a long history together. The political relations between them started when the Shah of Persia, Nassereddin Shah Qajar, sent a first ambassador to Washington D.C. in the 1800s. Until 1979, the countries remained political allies, sharing understanding and trust. However, the trust was broken due to the British led and series of other conflicts and incidents between the two nations. That caused the tension to develop in their relationship and the trust vanished. Nevertheless, the trust and friendship just shaded, not vanished completely. Continue reading

Essay on My Passions

Each person has his/her own passion. In fact, we can be even unconscious that we have some passion but it gradually invades our soul and defines our development. At the same time, it is due to passion we can progress because our passion stimulates us to achieve new objectives and cope with new challenges we could have never even thought about if there were no passions. As for me, my passion is the communication with other people.

At first glance, it seems to be a normal need of an individual to communicate with another individual, but it is just a superficial view on the process of the communication. I strongly believe that the communication is one of the main advantages humans have compared to other species inhabiting our planet. Continue reading

Open Systems Critical Essay

Having decently earned her weight as one of the leading contemporary curators for post-WWII art, Donna DeSalvo’s essay on Open Systems: Rethinking Art c. 1970 (Tate Modern, London 2005) is an important contribution for the exhibition and its magnitude. The scope of DeSalvo’s account is rather wide, providing not only the essentials of the exhibition, but also the contextual framework of the works. Although DeSalvo herself warns from “the danger that one can promote only one reading” of the 1970s art, her approach is extremely holistic, ranging from the work and the artist to potential sources of influence on a single or a group of objects. Continue reading

Just-In-Time Production Essay

Just-in-time production as compared to the more traditional just-in-case stock system have several important advantages and disadvantages. Starting with a brief historical excursus, just-in-time paradigm of delivering inventory was first introduced by Japanese manufacturers. This system is based on the arrival of materials and components at the production facility exactly when it is needed. In the 1980s, several U.S. manufacturing firms have decided to adopt the system, which has proven to be of great utility.

Nowadays this system is used by many firms in the West and beyond. As a result, the “inventories of both raw materials and finished goods have been dramatically reduced for these organizations, thus making capital available for more profitable uses” (Griffy-Brown, 2008, para. 2). It is very clear that the old paradigm of warehousing does not work anymore because of mounting costs. One of the biggest advantages of just-in-time system is that inventory can be held in an incomplete state until there is actual customer demand. Continue reading
