THOSE THIRTY MINUTES

Those Thirty Minutes is a thought -provoking story. It leaves us with a question in our mind, that do we live our lives for others, and forget to live it for ourselves.
The story is about a man named Kashar who is running away from fate he has set to come upon him. Kashar is a very steadfast man who loves his country. He has fallen in love with Mogri, the daughter of Kashar’s enemy. He is smitten by her beauty. It is the source of arousal for him, it makes him ooze out passion. He describes her as the girl with sparkling eyes and lips red as ambers. He feels that she is as beautiful as apple blossoms, and her laughter cascaded like blossoms from apple trees. He would slyly meet her in the Gadiali forest. He was so familiar with the forest that even the inhabitant animals could not match up with him in knowing the intricacies of the forest.
The story goes deep into describing us the overflowing sentiments with which he describes Mogri’s treachery. He feels betrayed, because inspite of the fact that she was the daughter of his enemy he had loved her truly, but she had never been loyal for she had always hidden her true identity from him. She had feigned her love for him all this while, she had come close to Kashar in order to spy and lead to the fall of Kashar and his village.
Kashar is completely broken when he comes to know of the betrayal. He resolutely goes to her village and on the day of finding an opportunity he gets into her house. On looking at her all his emotions surface and he is not able to hold himself, he kisses her so that this last kiss remains with him forever. He thinks of her as a woman who has to endure all sorts of kisses because of the dangerous life she has chosen to live. When she kissed him back he knew from the kiss that it was only he whom she offered her kisses and to the rest her cold lifeless lips. When he…...

The Thirty Years War

...INTRODUCTION The Thirty Years’ War was a religious and political war. The first half of the war could be characterized by the religious color and the last half of the war could be characterized by the political color. First of all, it was a religious war between the Catholic and the Protestant on the stage of Germany. Religious interest of both parties surpassed the gravity of the Great Commandment by their LORD. Second, it was a political war between not a few parties. Especially on the latter stage of the Thirty Years’ War, many countries involved drove it into international war. The primary property of the Thirty Years’ War was the long term itself of the war. At first, nobody might have expected that the war would keep going so long a way. If they had known just half of the result of the long period war, many of the participants would have changed their minds. The long term of the Thirty Years’ War left Germany devastated: both the German territory and the life of the German people. It also made foreign participants tired and hurt. As Fletcher indicated, Germany was a miniature of Europe, and the both Europe and Germany were divided into many at the end of the war. And what was worse, the latter was totally devastated: Germany was a rich country when the war began, but she was a desert when the war ended. Here we need to retrospect and ask a question: What was the reason of the war-participants and what did they accomplish? What is the Thirty Years’ War......

Church Minutes

...they would say……...our ancestors that is… I can’t imagine how they’d feel… (Silence falls upon the conversation of ladies as they sat pondering over their discussion and the revelation that something must be done. Stage lights dim) Narrator (Heather): At a table off to the right three old women had been sitting quietly listening to the conversation the other women were having. Drawn in by the conversation, and drawn in by the time…they knew that THIS WAS IT. No longer, could they sit in the shadows of history—they had work to do. They also knew it would take an army of women to combat the problem—the cycle of despair and despondency and shed the light of hope on the future. They had to make the call. They called those that stood in the gap. They called on those that paved the way known and unknown. All four women agreed that it was time to send out the call. Sojourner Truth (Mae Etta Brown): “When in Akron, Ohio, May 1851, I spoke, and I recollect that folks must have heard what I had to say, and I will say it again. ‘If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down, these women together ought to be able to turn it right again.’ It is time. Yes, it is time. I am in agreement. Send out the call!” Harriet Tubman (Shae Allen): “Yes, send out the call. ‘I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can’t say; I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger. I had reasoned......

Thirty One Gifts Overview

...Three Approaches Differentiation: Thirty-One Gifts is a company that has substantially grown and continues to grow. They have found ways to differentiate themselves from other direct sellers with in multiple ways. The ways that stand out to me are its focus on women, tie to a biblical passage, hours of operation, and product. Its focus on women also ties to the company’s biblical connection. As stated in an article, “the very name of Thirty-One comes from the Bible. The company’s official materials say that Proverbs 31 ‘celebrates hard working women who are compassionate, gracious and inspiring to their families and the people around them” (Feran, 2011). The bags and goods sold from Thirty-One are all sold as direct-sales where the sales consultant typically sells at hosted parties; however, it also includes sales online. This allows for all hours shopping which was an intentional reason for starting the company; the CEO was in Atlanta before the company existed, attempting to shop at gift stores and “when she realized that the shops selling those products all closed at 6pm, something clicked” (Feran, 2011). Lastly, their product itself is differentiated, and one main way is that the bags and most items can be monogrammed. Cost Effectiveness: Krispy Kreme is my example for cost effectiveness. First, Krispy Kreme significantly outperformed the market estimates for earnings per share for yearend 2011 by posting $2.01 EPS while the estimate averaged at $0.06 EPS. This,......
