The 1964 Philadelphia Phillies will always be known as the team that suffered one of the great collapses in sports history. They let a huge division lead slip away by losing ten games in a row at the end of the season. Despite the collapse, the Phillies season had its share of memorable moments, including a perfect game and a ninth-inning home run by a Phillie to win the All-Star Game.
But the most remarkable moment of the entire season occurred after a game, not during it. Clay Dalrymple, a Phillie pitcher, was asked to help a blind girl who had requested a chance to walk out on the field. Dalrymple took the girl to home plate where she reached down and felt the plate. Then they walked to first base, second base, and third base before ending up at home plate once again.
While Dalrymple was showing the girl around the bases, he never noticed that the fans remaining in the stadium had stopped to watch him and his companion. He just assumed that the silence in the stands meant the fans had gone home. But when the two of them finally reached home plate, the ballpark erupted. Dalrymple was shocked by the applause. When he looked up, he saw thousands of fans giving him a standing ovation. Dalrymple later told a Sports Illustrated reporter, “It was the biggest ovation I ever got.”
I am convinced that we take so many things for granted in life. Sight is one of those things. For those of us who have been blessed with the ability to see, we don’t know what it is like not to see. It is not until moments like the story that was just shared that we realize the blessings of life that we have and that we take for granted. Listen to what Max Lucado writes about one particular man who was blind:
For 51 years Bob Edens was blind. He couldn’t see a thing. His world was a black hall of sounds and smells. He felt his way through five decades of darkness. And then, he could see. A…...

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......

...a construction detail during the summer. In both cases, the work is short term and the wages are set. The operative word in this question is "friend." The nature of the relationship is important. If the person is more of an acquaintance, hiring the person would probably be acceptable. 8. Why do certain professionals -- bankers, accountants, lawyers, physicians, clergy -- have fiduciary responsibilities? Certain professions have fiduciary responsibilities, because they are known as "trust" professions. All of these professions have access to personal, confidential information about finances, health, or other highly private matters and therefore, they must exercise a higher standard of care regarding their clients' confidentiality. 9. What would you do if a former subordinate asked you to write him/her a letter of reference on corporate letterhead? As is stated in the text, you should get your company’s permission to do so. It is almost always better (safer) to write a personal letter on your personal letterhead and attach a business card. That way, the reference represents your “personal opinion” and is not likely to be taken as a “corporate” position. 10. Do employers have a responsibility to alert other employers to an employee's wrongdoing by supplying an unfavorable reference? Why or why not? Discuss the conflict between community responsibility and self-protection. There has been some publicity lately about the ethical responsibility of employers to......

... 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 her as well. Annotated Bibliography Yao, Tianyuan Ben. "A Test of Faith: Analysis on “A Good Man is Hard to Find”." A Journal of Academic Writing (2013): 10. Yao explores, summarizes, and annotates the relationships between the Grandmother and the Roman Catholic Faith. She identifies that the grandmother puts herself and her life before that of anyone else’s which directly contradicts Christian beliefs. The grandmother continuously shows her lack of true Christian faith as she attempts to use God to save her life and as soon as she realizes it is not working she reverts to bribing the misfit. “The grandmother is also shown to care more for her life than her family’s wellbeing. Instead of speaking up for her young grandchildren, she begs to The Misfit, “You wouldn't shoot a lady, would you?” (587). Her concern for her family seems to diminish at this critical point. These traits are far from Christian teachings (see Isaiah 1:17, Psalm 82:3, John 15:13). In the desperation of begging for her life, the grandmother even uses God. The......

...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. 1 Most recently, Richard Bauckham has weighed in on this debate in his landmark volume Jesus and the 1. Thomas: James H. Charlesworth, The Beloved Disciple: Whose Witness Validates the Gospel of John? (Valley Forge, PA: Trinity Press International, 1995), 414–21. He lists and evaluates 22 proposals made by other scholars (pp. 127–224). Mary Magdalene: Joseph A. Grassi, The Secret Identity of the Beloved Disciple (Mahwah, NJ:......

John Doe

...John Doe is sometimes used to refer to a typical male in other contexts as well, in a similar manner to John Q. Public in the United States or Joe Public, John Smith or Joe Bloggs in Britain. For example, the first name listed on a form might be John Doe, along with a fictional address or other fictional information to provide an example of how to fill in the form. The name is also used frequently in US popular culture, for example in the Frank Capra film Meet John Doe. John Doe was also the name of a 2002 American television series. Similarly, a child or baby whose identity is unknown may be referred to as Baby Doe. A notorious murder case in Kansas City, Missouri, referred to the baby victim as Precious Doe.[3] Other unidentified female murder victims have also been nicknamed by the public or investigators as "Cali Doe" and "Princess Doe". Additional persons may be called James Doe, Judy Doe, etc. However, to avoid possible confusion, if two anonymous or unknown parties are cited in a specific case or action, the surnames Doe and Roe may be used simultaneously; for example, "John Doe v. Jane Roe". If several anonymous parties are referenced, they may simply be labelled John Doe #1, John Doe #2, etc. (the U.S. Operation Delego cited 21 (numbered) "John Doe"s) or labelled with other variants of Doe / Roe / Poe / etc. Other early alternatives such as John Stiles and Richard Miles are now rarely used, and Mary Major has been used in some American federal cases.[4] The Doe...

...          John the Baptist Prepares the Way 1 ( what good news?)The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, 2 as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way” 3 “a voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’”(is this the good news?, what does it mean by sending a messenger is it john?) 4 And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. (was john a chosen one to baptize people by god?) 5 The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Where was this located? Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. 6 John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. 7 And this was his message (why does it matter what john wore?) when Jesus was baptizing did john baptized to at the same time?  “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”(after him comes someone more porwerful? Does that mean that he is considering himself someone powerful also? What does it mean by baptizing with the holy spirit? Baptized with the spirit of god? (NIV)   ...
