This category is for best archetypal theme. Our winner by 5% of the vote is Athena!! There are many different themes for stories such as Appearance vs Reality. Themes help the reader understand the story and make it entertaining to read. Athena can represent the theme Good vs Evil. She represents good by helping others and going out of her way to make life easier for those around her. Athena also goes against other Gods just to help humans. For example when Poseidon turned a river into salt water which was not helpful for people, Athena turns it into an olive tree so people can have food resources. Evil is represented by the characters in the story that only think of the benefits for themselves like Poseidon did.
Our next award goes to best archetypal situation. It was close but the winner is Demeter and Persephone!! In stories there are many different situations that take place such as Death and re-birth. These situations help make the story interesting to the reader. Demeter and Persephone is an excellent example of ‘the quest’. It best represents ‘the quest’ because after Zeus handed his daughter over to Hades to be married Demeter grew depressed and would not come out of her temple or grow any fruit on earth. However after Persephone was found and brought back fertility was restored to the land. That is similar to the description of ‘the quest’ where there is a search for someone and once they are found it brings fertility to a wasted…...

...referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) after the successful passing of Resolution 1593, which required that Sudan “cooperate fully with and provide any necessary assistance to the Court and the Prosecutor pursuant to the resolution”. Four years later, in March of 2009, the Prosecutor of the Court, Luis Moreno-Ocampo issued the first arrest warrant for the sitting Sudanese President, Omar al-Bashir. He was charged with multiple counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes that included rape, murder and intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population. Warrants were also delivered to the leader of the Janjaweed, Ali Kushayb and former Minister of the Interior, Ahmed Haroun. Al-Bashir was served another warrant in July of 2010 that included charges of genocide. Criticism came soon after as many observers, including the African Union (AU) and the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) pointed out that Sudan, under the direction of al-Bashir, signed but did not ratify the Rome Statute, thus rejecting the jurisdiction of the Court. They claimed that the referral by the UNSC and the subsequent warrant are breaches of Sudan’s national sovereignty, a violation of al-Bashir’s’ personal immunity, and that Sudan is perfectly capable of trying the perpetrators in the Darfur conflict by its own judicial system. They cited Article 98 of the Rome Statute, which refers to the protection of personal immunity of......

What Is the Evidence That Smoking Cannabis Can Contribute to Developing Schizophrenia? Critically Discuss with Reference to Recent Scientific Studies.

...version of normal late post-natal brain maturation. This distortion can be attributed to alterations in glutamates transmission which is involved in the brains synaptic plasticity and long term potenciation, which has the effect of affecting pre-frontal neurocircutry. They state that THC exposure in adolescents disturbs the endocannabinoid systems control over glutamate and GABA release, resulting in changed neural circutry within prefrontal cortical areas. Dose, duration of use and exact time frame are factors which determine whether or not schizophrenia will develop (Bossong, 2010). CARE program Haroun used a Cognitive Assessment and Risk Evaluation (CARE) Program to investigate the rate of cannabis misuse among participants who are at risk of developing a psychotic illness, based on their family history and symptoms indicating psychotic characteristics may develop. (Haroun, 2006) They found that high risk individuals had an increased likelihood of developing psychosis within a year if they had been exposed to cannabis use. An analogous study was carried out by Yung, also using high risk individuals, and his results appeared to contradict Haroun's, as they failed to locate a link between development of psychotic symptoms and cannabis use. However, it is possible that this discrepancy may have arisen from the fact that Yung use a relativity low base rate of cannabis, i.e at levels which are not reflective of those used by cannabis smokers in the real world.

...2014 In Salman Rushdie's excellent book Haroun and the Sea of Stories, there's a striking scene near the beginning where Haroun, the child of a famous storyteller, confronts his father by repeating a line that was previously parroted by a narrow-minded neighbour: What's the use of stories that aren't even true? Haroun spends much of the story (which I gather might be imagined rather than true) making up for this mistake, through fantastic adventures in a universe where two factions are at war: those who tell stories, and those who want all stories to end and silence to reign. For this is where fiction is so much better: at the telling not of factual truths that anyone can observe, but of greater Truths about life, about what it means, what it's about, how to live it, how to enjoy it and be happy and find a purpose. To observe these Truths, one needs very good eyes indeed, and telling them directly is almost impossible. Instead, a great author must tell a story that illustrates the Truth that they experienced and observed. If they do it extremely well, it becomes a kind of distilled life experience that the reader assimilates and which changes their understanding of life in subtle and important ways. The plot concerns a boy who all but curses his father in a moment of despair by saying, cynically, ''What's the use of stories that aren't even true?'' As a consequence, the father becomes heartbroken, and loses his storytelling mojo. Haroun then embarks on a fantastic......

Haroun and the Sea of Stories Study Questions

...of speech and loose talk can get you into trouble with the law. I don't think we need to know Rushdie's personal history for the story to make sense, this story has also told me to know the laws of other countries, be sensitive to other race and religion and although you can't take back what you have said, you can try to make amends. In certain point of view, Rushdie might have been, in a way, talking about what was happening in his life at the time. Rushdie might have been trying to tell the world that stories have love and hate in them, but what's important is to help keep people happy and entertained, and criticizing them is pointless. 4. If you are familiar with the classic Arab collection of stories Arabian Nights, the names of Haroun and Rashid may sound familiar to you. Their last name is Khalifa. What do you think the author meant by creating such a connection? The author might want to keep the readers interest on the Middle Eastern setting of this culture as he is trying to make amends for his book and it is the government of Iran that is hunting him down. It would have a different setting to have English names like John and Peter for this story....

Romeo and Juliet

...March 29th, 2014 Leadership in Haroun and the sea of stories It can be said that great leaders have the qualities that make for exceptional leadership. This is main focus in the story Haroun And The Sea Of Stories, by Salman Rushdie. Many people who have a spark of the qualities needed, can develop and show great power of leadership in certain situations. Such as the protagonist Haroun Khalifa. But what makes a good leader? The story demonstrates that intelligence is a key ingredient for leadership. This is indicated through communication, decisiveness, and the power of conflict resolution. The first form of intelligence that a good leader has, is the ability to communicate with others. In this story Salman Rushdie, shows that expressing your thoughts and feelings freely is crucial and will bring you success in life. Rushdie portrays this through General Kitab and his army. The author shows the Guppees ability to communicate through the quote, "The black-nosed Chupwala Army, whose menacing silence hung over it like a fog, looked too frightening to lose. Meanwhile the Guppees were still busily arguing over every little detail. Every order sent down from the command hill had to be debated fully, with all its pro's and con's..." (Rushdie, 184). This quote shows that expressing your ideas and thoughts leads to victory. Rashid Khalifa was confused that, with all of the Guppees chatter, how it was possible to fight a battle. To Rashids surprise, the......

...Pinto spent years in detention in the struggle for Kenya’s freedom. Pio Pinto, over the 35 years since his assassination, remains a major influence and national role model for Kenyans. Joseph Murumbi was the voice in exile of a silenced Kenya during the Emergency, and later Foreign Minister and second Vice-President. In law, advocates such as A.R. Kapila, Fitz de Souza, and Jaswant Singh defended Bildad Kaggia, Jomo Kenyatta, Paul Ngei, Fred Kubai, Achieng Oneko and Kungu Karumba at their trial at Kapenguria (1952-53). They and others such as Chanan Singh defended in hundreds of Mau Mau Causes and appeals. In the struggle for the freedom of the Press, Asian African journalists and publishers also played a critical part . These included Haroun Ahamed, Editor, The Colonial Times, D.K. Sharda, Sitaram Achariar (The Democrat). N.S. Thakur, and four generations of the Vidyarthi family. Achariar also printed the Gikuyu newspaper Muigwithania, (1928) the Kikuyu Central Association (KCA) paper edited by Achieng Oneko.

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

...Haroun and the Sea of Stories SALMAN RUSHDIE Novel, 1990. Summary. In this story we encounter storytelling as a means of saving your identity, your relationship with your family, and perhaps even your life—which means that, in a sense, you are saving a world. The British-Indian author Salman Rushdie (b. 1947) had to go underground after the publication of his novel The Satanic Verses in 1988. The book was considered blasphemous to Islam by the fundamentalist government of Iran, which issued a death warrant against him. He says that he reached a point where he was so distressed he wasn’t able to think of any stories to tell. But he worked himself out of his depression, and Haroun and the Sea of Stories, a book for children and other people who have a natural love for stories, is the result. This modern fairy tale has many surprising elements, but here we will focus just on the core issue: why stories have value. Haroun’s father Rashid is a professional storyteller and a very popular one. He usually tells cheerful stories, even though they live in a very sad city. Haroun is beginning to ask questions about his father’s storytelling: Where do the stories come from? From the great Story Sea, says Rashid, and you have to be a subscriber to the water, which comes from a tap installed by one of the Water-Genies. But Haroun doesn’t believe him. And now a sad thing happens in their lives: Haroun’s mother Soraya with the beautiful voice leaves her husband and child for another......

The Three Ghost Stories

...Master B.’s room. I had the smoothest of faces and the shortest of legs, and I had taken another creature like myself, also with the smoothest of faces and the shortest of legs, behind a door, and was confiding to him a proposition of the most astounding nature. This proposition was, that we should have a Seraglio. The other creature assented warmly. He had no notion of respectability, neither had I. It was the custom of the East, it was the way of the good Caliph Haroun Alraschid (let me have the corrupted name again for once, it is so scented with sweet memories!), the usage was highly laudable, and most worthy of imitation. ‘O, yes! Let us,’ said the other creature with a jump, ‘have a Seraglio.’ It was not because we entertained the faintest doubts of the meritorious character of the Oriental establishment we proposed to import, that we perceived it must be kept a secret from Miss Griffin. It was because we knew Miss Griffin to be bereft of human sympathies, and incapable of appreciating the greatness of the great Haroun. Mystery impenetrably shrouded from Miss Griffin then, let us entrust it to Miss Bule. We were ten in Miss Griffin’s establishment by Hampstead Ponds; eight ladies and two gentlemen. Miss 66 of 97 Three Ghost Stories Bule, whom I judge to have attained the ripe age of eight or nine, took the lead in society.

Haroun and the Sea of Stories

... Being too outspoken may get you into trouble at times. I feel as though it would be nice to know about Rushdie’s past in order to better understand him as a person, but we don’t necessarily need to know his past in order to figure out what he is trying to get across to us. The broader application is that stories are wonderful. Children grow up reading stories, telling stories, hearing stories from their parents. Taking that away from them would only hurt them. Allow children to enjoy being young and susceptible to fairy tales and monsters. Even though this story is nothing like what I was reading as a child, who are we to poke fun at it? That is what what Haroun was trying to get across and fight for. 4. If you are familiar with the classic Arab collection of stories Arabian Nights, the names of Haroun and Rashid may sound familiar to you. Their last name is Khalifa. What do you think the author meant by creating such a connection? I’m not entirely sure of what the connection would be. Id be lying if I said I knew any form of Middle Eastern books. Maybe he is just trying to keep his traditions and views alive within his family and the traditions that they have grown accustomed to sharing with one another. That would be my best guess....

...Famous) "The best soundtrack music by-passes your mind and goes straight to your soul. It sort of trips something in your brain, you know you're being transported." Lewis Gilbert (Reach for the Sky, Alfie, Educating Rita) "Film music is another weapon in the armoury of the director. The score should inevitably have a strong theme which reflects the mood of the film either in a leading character or the action of the film. Thus any form of music from symphonies through pop to synthesiser can be used. Music is more powerful when it is used sparingly and should never be used when it is thought to enhance a poorly written or badly played scene. This is something to be avoided. Sometimes natural sounds are more effective than music." Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (Abouna) "For me, music is very important. I think about it when I write the script. It's a part of the movie...so, we have to use it very carefully, as part of the story, and not only in a artificial way...Music must bring something more, something that you can't express only by images and words. It must let us feel the rhythm that the characters have inside themselves." Arthur Hiller (Silver Streak, Love Story) "Music enhances a film by joining the other creative juices helping, indeed sometimes making the audience not only see the film but feel the film with their emotions. I'm always indebted to my composers and to the other creative juices that pour into the pot," Dennis Hopper (Hot Spot, Colors) "Colors (1988) was the......

...n the country of Alifbay, where Haroun Khalifa lives with his father, a famous storyteller, and his mother. One day, Haroun arrives home from school to learn that his mother has run off with his upstairs neighbor. This neighbor had often been critical of Haroun's father, Rashid, because he did not understand the usefulness of stories. In anger, Haroun assails his father for the uselessness of his stories. This crushes his father. Haroun finds it difficult to concentrate on schoolwork and so his father decides to take him on a storytelling job he is performing for some politicos in the Land of G and the Valley of K. When Rashid attempts to tell his stories, however, no words come out, and the politicos get very mad. Haroun and Rashid board a mail bus bound for the Valley of K. It is driven by a parrot-looking man named Butt who stutters and speaks in riddles. Rashid makes a deal with Butt to drive them on the dangerous road between the Land of G and the Valley of K. Butt drives dangerously and Haroun is worried that he will die. When they reach the beautiful sights of the Valley of K, Rashid tells Haroun that it all reminds him of "khattam-shud," an ancient concept that means silence. When they reach K, Haroun and Rashid meet Mr. Buttoo, the politician, who takes them to his boat on the Dull Lake. As they depart on the lake, they are engulfed in a thick mist. The mist smells very bad and Haroun realizes that it is a Mist of Misery brought on by his father's foul mood.......

Aesthetics of Representing Cultural Paradigms in Rushdie

...Midnight’s Children also where Saleem recalls a ditty sung by Mary Periera long ago Anything you want to be, you kin be You kin be just what-all you want. (Midnight’s Children 457) Rushdie also toys with the nature of mother-son relationships in Indian and Pakistani societies, emphasizing the perversion of their closeness. The hoopoe in Haroun and Sea of Stories comes to represent both the ancient tradition of Sanskrit storytelling from which Attar has taken him and the value of the narrative arts in which he is adept. Through this novel, Rushdie establishes a univocal interpretation of culture, and the story sea is a living embodiment of heteroglossia and polyphony. When Haroun asks why he hates stories so much, given that stories are such fun, Khattam Shud replies: “The world, however, is not for Fun. . . .The world is for Controlling.” “Which world?” Haroun made himself ask. “Your world, my world, all worlds,” came the reply. “They are all to be Ruled. And inside every single story, inside every Stream in the Ocean, there lies a world, a story-world, that I cannot Rule at all. . . .” (161) This “free” society is represented in Haroun by the Guppees who defend the story sea because it reflects the diversity of their own community, a multicultural utopia. A free society in which there are no limits to what can be said and what can be told, Rushdie is suggesting, will always prove stronger than a society that is superficially bound by imposed government policy and......

The study will discuss and analyze several factors of the animal feed industry. This industry, TFI are facing a few difficulties in operational and human resource management. Which later on will be further discussed and elaborated. One obstacle the company’s facing is balancing the plant’s production load, due to the plant producing different feeds which takes time and to set up and change over feeds for different animal and variants. Another issue is the shortage supply of quality raw materials and reliability of the adequate quality of raw materials. Orders of raw materials in bulk isn’t really advisable for that the animal feeds have a limited shelf life. Lastly is the need to pre-empt the entry of a disruptive labor organization into the company. Although resolving this issue will be costly and grim, the company has a few opportunities to even out this concern. And they are: customers are loyal and they do not like to switch from one brand to another for the sme batch of animal feeds, the company demands for goods are always high, the companies distribution chain is high and strong within the region, livestock farmers do not like to switch from one brand to another for the same batch of animals.
