Учителю, с любовью

Эдвард Рикардо Брейтуэйт

Гвианский дипломат Юстас Брейтуэйт родился в 1912 г. в Британской Гвиане. В военные годы он был в Вооруженных силах Великобритании. После войны темный оттенок кожи мешает получить ему заниматься научной деятельностью, что была ему близка С 1950 по 1957 работает школьным учителем. В 60-е он стал Постоянным Представителем Гвинеи в ООН. В 1959 году Брейтуэйт выиграл литературную премию Ainsfield Wolff за книгу «Учителю, с любовью», в которой он пишет о своих годах преподавания в Лондонской школе Ист-Енда. Есть другие книги, вышедшие из-под его пера, такие как «Возвращение»(1961), «Слуга за монету» (1962), «Какую соломинку выбрать?» (1965) «Нежелательные соседи» (1972).

Каждое утро пятницы на уроке перед большой переменой все ученики писали «Еженедельный обзор событий». Это была одна из излюбленных программ Старичка[1]: та часть, в которой он не потерпел бы каких-либо возражений. Каждый ребенок должен был описывать события прошедшей недели в школе своими словами; он мог свободно комментировать, критиковать, соглашаться или не соглашаться с любым человеком, предметом или методом преподавания, до тех пор, пока это каким-либо образом было связанно со школой. Никто и ничто не было под запретом, включая самого директора, более того, детям не грозило никакого наказания. «Посмотрите на это с такой стороны, - говорил мистер Флориан, - Это выгодно как детям, так и учителям. Если ребёнок хочет написать о чём-то, что имеет значение для него, он приложит все усилия, чтобы записать это как можно более тщательно и подробно; это, в некотором роде, улучшит его письменные навыки, построение предложений, стиля в целом. Каждую неделю благодаря его обзору мы можем отслеживать прогресс в этих навыках. А что касается учителя, мы получим довольно хорошее представление о том, что думают о нас дети, и насколько мы с…...

(b) If the company disposed of one of its two subsidiaries that had been included in its consolidated statements for prior years, no comment as to consistency needs to be made in the CPA’s audit report.

To Sir, with Love

...Dr. Edward Ricardo Braithwaite's story, " To   Sir ,  with   love " is a story about a teacher who begins teaching at a reform school in London. The author bases the main plot of the story on his own life when he was a teacher in a rough section of London. The plot and characters are believable throughout the story, their actions show them as normal students who rebel for different reasons, much like students do in the United States today. Braithwaite kept the story believable and interesting. The students at the reform school had been kicked out of their other schools due to behavior. Most of the students were from broken homes. They either only had one parent or none at all.  The narration here is rather simple and going from the point of view of the teacher, the text is rather easy to understand and feel. The text can be logically divided into a two parts. The key in the first part of the text is rather dry and unemotional. From the very beginning of the extract we see the description of the Friday morning, the “pre-recess” period. The author gives the headmaster a nickname – Old man. To describe the principal’s program our narrator uses such metaphor as “pet scheme”. From his next words we see the description of this “scheme” as a program in which “Each child would review the events of his school week in his own words, in his own way; he was free to comment, to criticise, to agree or disagree, with any person, subject or method”. From his next words can be seen a little......

Love Chapter

...Bible's "Love Chapter" Printer-friendly version article by Good News Editor One Bible chapter—1 Corinthians 13—is aptly known as the love chapter since it gives us a beautiful description of what godly love is like! The rest of this letter from the apostle Paul shows that some Corinthian church members sought certain spiritual gifts with a wrong motive—to gain superior status. In 1 Corinthians:12:31 (NIV), Paul said, "And now I will show you the most excellent way"—the right motive and approach for exercising all spiritual gifts—the way of love. In 1 Corinthians:13:1-3, Paul mentions several impressive gifts. No matter which gift we have, if we are lacking love, then in God's sight we are nothing! Without love, the gift is tarnished, the results are ineffectual and God is displeased. Verse 3 shows that even self-sacrificing, charitable works can be done with motives other than true love. Verses 4 through 7 tell us some of the characteristics of true love: Love is not selfish or self-centered. It is kind, humble, forgiving, courteous, not easily angered, respectful, trusting, positive and hopeful. It also gives us spiritual resilience and patience so that it willingly "endures all things" to obey and serve God. Envy and competition create division, as was the case in the Corinthian church. Love is the great unifier. Verse 11 points out that emotional and spiritual maturity is best summed up by love. We may tend to rank faith and hope alongside love,......

...Solutions to Questions 8-1 Activity-based costing differs from tradi-tional costing systems in a number of ways. In activity-based costing, nonmanufacturing as well as manufacturing costs may be assigned to products. And, some manufacturing costs—including the costs of idle capacity—may be excluded from prod-uct costs. An activity-based costing system typically includes a number of activity cost pools, each of which has its unique measure of activity. These measures of activity often differ from the allocation bases used in traditional costing systems. 8-2 When direct labor is used as an allocation base for overhead, it is implicitly assumed that overhead cost is directly proportional to direct labor. When cost systems were originally devel-oped in the 1800s, this assumption may have been reasonably accurate. However, direct labor has declined in importance over the years while overhead has been increasing. This suggests that there is no longer a direct link between the level of direct labor and overhead. Indeed, when a company automates, direct labor is replaced by machines; a decrease in direct labor is accompa-nied by an increase in overhead. This violates the assumption that overhead cost is directly propor-tional to direct labor. Overhead cost appears to be driven by factors such as product diversity and complexity as well as by volume, for which direct labor has served as a convenient measure. 8-3 Top managers provide leadership that is needed to properly motivate...

Analysis to Sir, with Love

...Analysis of the text “To Sir, with love” By Eustace Braithwaite The text I’m going to comment on is entitled “To Sir, with love”, written by Eustace Braithwaite, a Guyanese novelist, writer, teacher and diplomat, best known for his stories of social conditions and racial discrimination. The passage under study is an excerpt from hid well-known novel “To Sir, with love”, that is an excellent autobiographical work, as it is based on his personal experience of teaching at a school in London’s East End. First, I would like to speak about the title of the text, because very often it can give you a hint about the content of the text. In this very case the first thought that came to my mind was that in the text may be a sir that receives a letter from somebody who loves him. After the first lecture of the text, I realized I wasn’t quite right, just partially right. Speaking about the structure of the title, I can say that it is expressed in a syntagm consisting of elements from human reality (sir) and from the spiritual one (love). The title has an expressive function, for it is realized by means of intention and emotionality. Also, it has a positive emotional status. The text tells the story of a teacher who came in a school in which every Friday morning the pupils were writing a Weekly Review – the headmaster’s pet scheme. The children were free to comment and criticize anything, as long as it was somehow linked with the school. The headmaster found advantages in......

One of the first women to become a Fortune 500 CEO. She is characterized as a screaming, combative, ruthless taskmaster known for humiliating employees in front of their peers. Her simple motto: "You can't run a company efficiently with a 'bunch of babies.' If you don't like it, leave. This is not a prison." Advice to other senior managers, be tough. Wachner is known for being smart and a good manager--and one who rewards only performance. Her record at Warnaco has been nothing short of stellar. Since leading a leveraged......
