Title The properties and characteristics that constitute a tragedy have evolved since the time of the Greeks. Recently, in the 20th century, Arthur Miller published an essay that gives a modern definition of what a tragedy is and lists the properties and characteristics that a play must contain to actually be considered a tragedy. Miller states that a play is recognized as a tragedy when it presents a character that is willing to “lay down his life, if need be, to secure one thing–his sense of personal dignity.” This character is trying to find his “‘rightful’ position in society,” but is eventually destroyed by shame that is caused by what is perceived as unfair treatment. Therefore, according to Miller, tragedy is the consequence of a man’s need to evaluate himself fairly (Miller “Tragedy”). The three dramas being evaluated, The Tragedy of Othello, Oedipus Rex, and Death of a Salesman, all fit this definition of a tragedy to some degree. The degree to which the parameters of dramatic tragedy are fulfilled in each play increases from The Tragedy of Othello to Oedipus Rex to Death of a Salesman. Out of the plays being analyzed, The Tragedy of Othello is the least tragic of the three. Othello, as a character, is a tragic hero that does actually give his own life in order to secure his sense of personal dignity (Shakespeare 1542). Othello feels that, despite the influence of Iago, he himself caused Desdemona's death as well as much of the other damage and tragedy that has occurred, and the only way to redeem his dignity is by killing himself. On the other hand, though, Othello had never really lost his rightful position in society, so the tragic events that occur are not implicated by shame or indignation. Instead, the tragic events that occur are implicated by trickery and dishonesty from one character and the foolishness and gullibility of other…...

...Introduction Despite the unpredictable economy in the Philippines in the past few years, the food industry manages to keep afloat and even manifest a remarkable growth. Blame it on Filipino’s love for food; people in the Philippines love to eat. Food dominates their lives and has become the basis of their social life. They eat three meals a day and two snacks in between. As a matter of fact, there are seven official meals known as breakfast, snacks, lunch, merienda, pica-pica, dinner and pulutan. And when it comes to taste, if other Asian countries prefer it spicy, Filipinos love it sweet. They always have a fondness for something sweeter than usual. Filipinos like sweet style spaghetti and not the sour taste like the Italian one. They love the sweetness of banana ketchup in the pasta recipe. Above all, pork or chicken barbeque is marinated in soy sauce, sugar, ketchup. And of course the sweeter the taste the better – sweet is the taste of love in the Philippines. It is trendy to eat foods that are creating a big buzz in the country, like hamburgers, siomai, frozen yogurt, take out noodles, scramble, sisig and chicken barbeque. Mainly, Filipinos are known as rice eaters, meals are never complete without eating rice. Despite that, Filipinos are still keen in eating Western burgers, sandwiches and pasta. But the important place of rice remains irreplaceable. These days, young brands like Burger Project, Crave Burger, Brothers Burger or its cheaper......

Pica disorder is an eating disorder where people have an appetite for non-nutritive, inedible materials and become addicted to eating items such as clay, nail polish, drywall, light bulbs and much more. This disorder causes victims to eat unimaginable things and causes many medical problems in the process. Some doctors believe that this disorder is just complication of the mental psyche, but there is more underlying issues that cause this disorder. Thus, Pica disorder is caused by a combination of biochemical, environmental and psychological factors. Biochemical factors are located in the brain and are chemical or mineral that control our brians health. A patient can have an abundance or a shortage of certain chemical or mineral, which can cause serious problems within the brains processes. Many victims that have pica disorder, have severe iron and zinc deficiency. Therefore patients begin to crave certain item that one would not normally desire such as magnets, light bulbs, nail polish, and much more that contain high amounts of iron and zinc in there make up.

Importance of Physical Education in Preschoolers

...a few questions about the rationale behind preschool physical education. Initially we seek to discover what the overall benefit of physical education to pre-schoolers is in general? Secondly we must understand what educational benefits physical education in pre-schoolers provides, in regards to further development of Bahamian children in high levels of education? Finally we must broaden the category of benefit to highlight the most prevalent one, the need of good physical education ethics to be instilled in generally unfit, and unhealthy country. It is impossible to understand the finer details of the logic behind preschool education until one understands what this class does for the young child in overall. According to an article by (Pica 2008) “First, habits are formed early in life. We don't wait until children are in elementary school to teach them to brush their teeth, bathe or eat the right foods. So why should children wait until they're school-aged to learn about physical activity?”As previously mentioned the years of preschool education are a critical time in the developmental stage of a child’s life. Therefore it is safe to assume that physical education in pre-schoolers is responsible for development of a mass majority of basic bodily functions. Physical education imparts basic skills, such as improving motor skills, coordination skills, body part identification and spatial awareness.It’s no secret, we all must start somewhere. Let’s face it, if someone didn’t...

Her daughter says she can’t get her mother to stop chewing the foil from the wine bottles, and the mother says she likes the metallic feel on her teeth. If you were the physician, what might you suggest to control her lead poisoning? -Since Pica is often associated with a dietary iron-deficiency, I would suggest adding more iron into the mother’s diet.

Oblast Ekoloske odrzivosti u PepsiCo kompaniji mozemo podeliti u 4 zasebne celine koje cemo u daljem tekstu i opisati sagledavajuci kako ostvarene tako i planirane ciljeve: * Voda * Zemljiste i pakovanje * Klimatske promene * Zajednice VODA * Unaprediti upotrebnu efikasnost koriscenja nase vode po jedinici proizvoda za 20% do 2015. godine. Efikasnost koriscenja vode je vec dugo fokus u vezi zivotne sredine PepsiCo kompanije. Tokom treceg kvartala 2010. godine, nas globalni biznis u sektoru hrane i pica smanjio je stepen koriscenja vode za 19,5% u odnosu na 2006. godinu. I mi smo na putu da ostvarimo ciljeve nase kompanije za 2015. godinu. Unapredjenjem postrojenja novim tehnologijama je jedan od nasih glavnih nacina postizanja zadatih ciljeva. Na primer, nas Frito-Lay objekat u Casa Grande u Arizoni je snabdeven sa najmodernijom opremom za preciscavanje vode i obogacivanje vode koji moze reciklirati i ponovo koristiti cak do 75% koriscenje vode u proizvodnji.

Pica

...2015 Pica Millions of people have to deal with inner demons on a daily basis, some more serious than others but one that is severe, is Pica disorder. Pica is a feeding disorder characterized by the persistent eating of nonnutritive substances. Some of the substances ingested are chalk, glass, cigarettes, toy parts, thread, hair, foam, clay, and feces. Although some people with DD seem to consume nonfood items rather indiscriminately, others tend to “specialize” by regularly ingesting one or two particular preferred items (Stiegler, 2005). The type of substance ingested tends to vary by age (Reel, 2013). The most cases of pica occur in children between 2 and 3 years old. It is very rare for adults to have pica, usually it is due to a developmental disability or a mental disorder (e.g. autism and schizophrenia). The eating of nonnutritive, nonfood substances may also manifest in pregnancy, when specific cravings might occur (American Psychiatric Association, 2013). Pica is not classified in to main eating disorder section of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Rather, it is categorized within feeding and eating disorders or infancy or early childhood due to the fact that its highest frequency of occurrence is among children (Reel, 2013). This non-food cravings eating disorder can be found in 10 percent to 32 percent of children between the ages of 1 and 6, according to the National Library of Medicine. There is no single known etiology for pica. Risk...

Case Study - the Children with Lead Poisoning

...pulverized paint chips. Analysis of the paint chips and dust reveals a high lead content. Lead and other heavy metals are also found in soil samples taken around the factory yard. Suspicious of lead poisoning, the physician initiates a broader campaign of medical examination. Among children under 16 living in the area she finds a very high prevalence of lead poisoning. Specifically, of the 112 children examined during the course of the study, over 70 show at least some signs and symptoms. By contrast, she finds relatively little evidence of lead poisoning among adults 25 years and older. The only adult with significant indications of lead poisoning is an elderly woman with pica – a compulsive habit of chewing on nonnutritive substances, in this case, the lead foil wrapped around wine bottle corks. Pica is often associated with a dietary iron deficiency and with iron deficiency anemia. The physician treats the affected patients for lead poisoning, and the CDC enlists the EPA to demolish the old factory and decontaminate the soil Based on the above case study and other information (which may involve some personal research) answer the following questions 1. What is the etiology of the mental and physiological signs shown by these patients? (1) 2. What risk factors for lead poisoning can you identify in the case study? (3) 3. Is lead a toxin?

Autism: It's Time to Listen

...repetitive behaviors (Autism Speaks, 2012). Autism can be connected to intellectual disabilities, problems with motor skills development, attention deficits, sleep issues, and gastrointestinal disorders (Autism Speaks, 2012). Autism is believed to originate in early brain development. While this is believed to be true most signs of Autism do not surface until the child is 2 to 3 years old. Other than the characteristics mentioned already ASD or Autism symptoms may include difficulty regulating emotion, tendency to lose control (sometimes labeled as a meltdown), self-injurious behavior such as head banging, hair pulling or self-biting. Other problems can range from sensory issues to Pica. Sensory issues can include problems with processing sensory information such as noise, smells, tastes and sights. Pica is the tendency to eat things other than food (Autism Speaks. 2012) In an effort to recognize the symptoms every parent should be knowledgeable of the normal limestone’s a child should be capable of at different stages. If a child is not making these milestones then a parent should have the child screened to determine if ASD or Autism is an explanation or perhaps another issue is present ( Autism Speaks, 2012). A Treatment plan for a child diagnosed with ASD or Autism can vary according to that child’s needs. It is extremely important to know that every individual on the spectrum is unique therefore every intervention plan will need to be customized to fit that child’s......
