VH - Case Study Example One of the major risk factors pointed out is that the management is old and unproven. The CEO is too old, that is about 70 years, and the CTO is his son. However, as far as Telco Exchange agrees to change the CEO and appoint someone who is suggested by Valhalla, this risk is solved to a great extent. The scope of the field Telco Exchange is engaged in is evident from the Aberdeen finding that while the average profit of a Fortune 500 company is 1% of its revenue, the money the company spends on telecommunications is around 0.84% of the total amount. So, as far as Telco manages to provide highly integrated and comprehensive solutions, there will be growth, or, at least, the business will not go down. Though there is a possibility that some financially able competitors like MSS Group, Teldta Control, Profitline, and QuantumShift may try to develop software solutions, they will address only the financial part of the issue, thus failing to address inventory management and service order. So, there is no possibility of any serious threat to Telco Exchange in the near future. Hence, Art Marks can vote to invest in Telco Exchange. B. ... However, as the companies know, these are not complete solutions as they do not address the root cause of the problem. On the other hand, Telco Exchange offers a much more comprehensive and integrated solution that identifies the root causes and the unnecessary services and equipments. It also helps prevent erroneous ordering and make sure that the elements which are not needed are eliminated. In addition, it provides a holistic view of the communication infrastructure of the companies. Furthermore, Telco Exchange helps automating the ordering process, thus making the data available for all parties to work with. This helps to ensure that the corporate policies are properly followed. Thus, it becomes evident that the outsourcing approach will not provide a solution that is as effective as that of Telco Exchange, and hence not a risk. The third risk is that the present management is unproven, with a CEO aged 70. In addition, the CTO is his son. It is necessary for the company to change the existing management, however, without any effect on the existing customers and performance. C. The Valhalla due diligence is perfect in the fact that though it may fail to provide huge profit through investment based on wild assumptions, it takes maximum care on not losing the investment. Thus, investors are offered an investment that is free from risk to the maximum possible extent. The investment decision is taken after duly studying the investment memo, and to take the decision, the whole board should vote unanimously; not based on majority. This ensures that all issues and risks concerning the investment are fully analyzed and not even a

Explore the relationship between the material and the spiritual in Beowulf and The Millers Tale - Essay Example Geoffrey ChaucerÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Å"The MillerÃ¢â¬â¢s TaleÃ¢â¬ is the second part of the Canterbury Tales and narrated by the alcoholic Miller and is a vulgar fable, depicting debauchery in contrast to the heroism underlined in Beowulf. Both Beowulf and the MillerÃ¢â¬â¢s Tale have been interpreted as using biblical analogies and allegories and the focus of this paper is to explore the relationship between the material and spiritual in Beowulf and the MillerÃ¢â¬â¢s Tale. If we firstly consider Beowulf , it is evident that the recurrent themes of war, tragedy and loss and military heroism are pertinent to historic patterns human behaviour whilst simultaneously providing a clear depiction of Anglo Saxon cultural norms. Moreover, French Historian de Certeau argues that Ã¢â¬Å"history aims at calming the dead who still haunt the present, and at offering them scriptural tombsÃ¢â¬ (Certau, 1998). Additionally, Certau highlights that the various themes and use of language in Beowulf convey the notion of inevitability through Ã¢â¬Å"labor of death and a labor against deathÃ¢â¬ (Certau, 1998, p.5). This is further reflected in Beowulf by the denial of death and references to fear, loss and death. If we further consider the development of literary historicism, FoucaultÃ¢â¬â¢s vision propounds that human behaviour is innately driven by motivation for power, which is clearly mirrored in Beowulf (Foucault, 1979, p22). Furthermore, in context of the medieval period within which Beowulf is set, there is clearly a dichotomy between philology, which studies the words and new historicism, which considers the historicism context (Frantzen, 1990, p114). Moreover, Philology posits that to understand people, the literary language must be understood whereas historicism indicates that to comprehend the language, the people must be understood for example the Anglo-Saxon gift culture represented assertion of

The Role Of Alfieri in A View From A Bridge Essay This essay that I have written about is from the book A View from the Bridge. And I am going to discuss how Arthur Miller (the Author of this play) has achieved such dramatic impact by using Alfieri. In this play Alfieris role is very important. He tells us more about the characters like a narrator; he sets the scene and the environment. He is an engaged narrator, helping the audience in every way to understand the story. Arthur miller has used the characteristics in Alfieri to divide the play in different ways. The character helps us to understand the background information, which we might have missed. Alfieris role is to unfold the play to the audience. He makes the audience get involved and plays with their emotions and helps them understand the story. The audience, including me, believe Alfieri because he is a lawyer and knows the most. He creates tension and emotion for the audience and the characters. I think he has so much pressure from being told the background information about the characters. I think he is drowned in stress and needs to talk to someone. I think thats why he talks to the audience. Alfieri also gives the feeling that he is retelling the story, because he mostly speaks in the past tense. The community in this play respect Alfieri because he is a lawyer and helps the rest of the characters out. Alfieris role is like a chorus, always reminding its tragedy. He creates suspense in the audience and gets them hooked to the play. The author must have thought very hard about this. The author makes the play feel like its a cliffhanger and makes them addicted to the play and makes them want to watch more. When Rodolpho wins Catherine, Eddie feels left out and jealous. He feels betrayed by Catherine and that she has ran off and lives her own life. This could also be the reason for his fear of Catherine growing up, and that she is not a little baby anymore. Eddie thinks Rodolpho is gay because he has blond hair and does cooking and sewing. Eddie feels justice must be served. Eddie goes to Alfieri (the lawyer) and tells him about Rodolpho. Alfieri is an educated lawyer, this contrast with the characters like Eddie. Alfieris language is very high standards. His role is to be an expert adviser and represents the American law. He is Eddies advisor. Sometimes he uses imagery to describe something. He uses similes and metaphors. He is giving the audience a clearer view and to convey to the audience that this story will end tragically. He keeps the audience thinking and helps them concentrate towards the play. He also uses imagery to tell the audience about his characters. For example: He walked in the room, and his eyes were like tunnels. This is a simile, this could mean Eddie was thinking deeply and like he committed a crime or he had some passion or he was stressed, obsessed or he had a deep desire or he was not aware of whats going on. In most of Alfieris scenes he develops tension, action, he also helps us like a guide. He moves the scene on to the next one. In the first scene in Alfieris office is where the main message of the play comes to light. That is love, morality, law come to life. The way the Arthur Miller done this is very clever. At the start of each scene Alfieri introduces who is in the scene and the setting, plus he creates the time and atmosphere.

The Great Gatsby As A Tragedy A hurried read of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby can generate a tragic impression. The deaths of three of the main characters and the failure of Gatsby and Daisy's romance can be viewed as tragic. However, a deeper analysis of the book reveals a much deeper tragedy. The relentless struggles of Gatsby himself parallel Fitzgerald's apparent ideas of the struggles of all Americans. The American dream romanticized by the majority of the population is really unattainable because it is, in fact, nonexistent. Every character has an unfortunate role and could be called a tragic character. However, the main tragedy is that of the title character. Gatsby experiences nothing but tragedy in his life. He begins miserable and ends miserable. He begins his life in a poor family where he feels he truly does not belong. His parents were unsuccessful and "his imaginationÃ ¢Ã¢â ¬Ã ¦never really accepted them as his parents at all"(104). Always envisioning a better life for himself and a bigger purpose for his life, he has an amazing ability to make his dreams come true. As a child he dreams of being wealthy and living in luxury, and he attains this. When he is older he dreams of having Daisy, and for a time he achieves this dream as well. He reaches out for the green light at Daisy's dock symbolizing the embracing of his dream. Once the distance between him and this dream is removed, he has exactly what he thinks he wants. However, it is this belief in the dream that leads to his eventual downfall. Nick reflects on Gatsby's aspirations saying, "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us" (189). Gatsby has an unusual quality of persistent hope... ...is family, education, and the way he fell into his money. His name is not actually Gatsby either. Like the "Great Houdini", Gatsby can make unreal things seem real. His entire life is an illusion to everyone but Nick. It is heartbreaking that in order to be happy Gatsby feels that he must put up these false fronts and skew reality in the eyes of others to make him into something that he is not. Gatsby's struggles are very similar to those of the American society in this particular era. In one case, the contender is reaching for an unworthy dream and in the other it is the contender that is unworthy of the dream. Fitzgerald combines the two struggles to produce an overall tragic comment on society in the 1920s. The lack of heart in the old aristocracy, the death of the American dream and the falsehood of the dreams unite to form the tragedy in the novel.

GOOD IN THE MORAL CONTEXT i. e. OBJECTIVISIT, SUBJECTIVIST AND FUNCTIONALIST Ã¢â¬ËGoodÃ¢â¬â¢ can be described from three views: Ã¢â¬ ¢Objectivist Ã¢â¬ ¢Subjectivist Ã¢â¬ ¢Functionalist Objectivist point of view One main philosopher who defended the objectivist point of view was George Edward (G. E. ) Moore. In his book Principia Ethica, Moore discussed the definition of the word Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢. With this book he influenced the philosophers who came after him. The objectivist point of view is naturalism i. e. (what moral law predictates, usually from the natural law). In defining the word Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢, G. E. Moore attacks the objectivist point of view.He criticizes the naturalistic point of view. Moore, an intuitionist (meaning he is someone who decides if something is good or wrong by reflecting on his own, without anyone explaining to him) disagreed that good could be explained objectively. Moore criticised Utilitiarians as they were emotivists, i. e. depending on feelings. Thus they defined Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ according to feelings. So good = pleasure. Thus utilitarians do not judge whether an action is good or bad by the quality of the action but by the consequence of the effects. Moore also criticised Christian morality, because these reason an action is good because it pleases God.He said, something is not defined as good because it pleases someone else. Moore invented an interesting term called Ã¢â¬ËThe Naturalistic fallacyÃ¢â¬â¢. Naturalistic fallacy, according to Moore, is to define a term, in this case Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ by means of something which is a state of fact. To explain Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ in terms of pleasure, is committing a Naturalistic fallacy. His reasoning is as thus: if something gives me pleasure, and thus because of this feeling, I say it is good; I conclude, since it is good, then I ought to do it Ã¢â¬â this is a wrong conclusion. Ã¢â¬ËIsÃ¢â¬â¢ is a statement of fact, while Ã¢â¬ËoughtÃ¢â¬â¢ is a mor al statement.Moore was an intuitionist. Moore says that the word Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ is not defined by its natural qualities (the qualities which are natural to something and which describe the object e. g. a red, juicy strawberry. If someone is asked why the strawberry is good, his answer will be, Ã¢â¬Ëbecause it is red and juicyÃ¢â¬â¢ thus defining Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ by its natural qualities). For Moore, good is good and cannot be defined. The objectivists say that moral terms are explained by means of natural qualities. Objectivism is the view that the claims of ethics are objectively true. They are not relative to subject or culture.A term is defined as thus because it is as thus. So good is good not because of feelings or situations, the definition of which would be from a subjectivist point of view, giving rise to relativism. Ã¢â¬ËGoodÃ¢â¬â¢ is defined as thus, because the actions showing good are inscribed in us in the natural law. So according to objectivists, Ã¢â¬ ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ is described by its natural qualities. Naturalism, which the objectivists used, is a term which interprets the word as it is standing for natural characteristics. This may be misleading as good might stand for a quality of pleasure or for something to be desired, and this is not always right.Something pleasurable may in actual fact be wrong. One argument against naturalism, which the objectivists use, is that attribution (is) is confused with identity (ought). Ã¢â¬ËIsÃ¢â¬â¢ is a statement of fact, while Ã¢â¬ËoughtÃ¢â¬â¢ is a moral statement. These (Ã¢â¬ËisÃ¢â¬â¢ and Ã¢â¬ËoughtÃ¢â¬â¢) are sometimes confused. Thus if something is pleasurable, thus it is good, thus it ought to be done, is (1) a wrong definition of Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢, (2) a wrong assumption as not all pleasures are good. One cannot equate good with solely pleasure. Moore goes deeper. In defining a word, he tried to split it into simpler terms.According to Moore, Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ cannot be split into any simpler terms as it is already in the simplest term. So MooreÃ¢â¬â¢s philosophy states that Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ is Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢. Ã¢â¬ËGoodÃ¢â¬â¢ is indefinable. Subjectivist point of view Subjectivism means that what is right or wrong is defined from the perspective of oneÃ¢â¬â¢s attitudes, oneÃ¢â¬â¢s theories and oneÃ¢â¬â¢s emotions. Subjectivism is based on feelings, and as a result of emotivism. Subjectivism may also be called emotivism. Subjectivism is ethical values expressed in emotional values; personal emotions which can differ from one person to another.Thus there is no fixed standard, no norm, no mean. David Hume He is a basic figure in subjectivism. He was a 17th century philosopher. Hume was also an empiricist (tries to tie knowledge to experience) as he did not use rationalism (reason) but got experience from things around him. Hume said that all we know comes from around us, from our senses 9what we see, what we feel). Decante on t he other hand used rationalism. Kant tried to fuse empiricism and rationalism. Hume thus says that a person, basically, is a bunch of sense experiences. He also says that the senses can never lead us to the universal truth.We cannot say that something is right or wrong just from our senses. According to Hume, ethics is not built on reason (which is what Aristotle says) but on the senses. The universal truths (which are basically what the natural law states Ã¢â¬â do good to others, harm no one etc) are simply cut off by HumeÃ¢â¬â¢s subjective approach. Hume emptied ethics from any rational foundation Ã¢â¬â he shifted ethics based on reason (like that of Aristotle) to ethics based on emotions or feelings. Hume says not to look for reason but for sentiments Ã¢â¬â thus if something feels good Ã¢â¬â do it.He said that passion not reason is what leads us to do something Ã¢â¬â reason alone is ineffective. According to Hume, it is sentiments and not reason which are the fou ndations of morality. Hume said that statements like Ã¢â¬ËThis car is redÃ¢â¬â¢ (descriptive) and Ã¢â¬ËThis action is goodÃ¢â¬â¢ (evaluative) are statements both of the same nature. He mixed descriptive and evaluative argument. In the statement, Ã¢â¬ËThis person is goodÃ¢â¬â¢ one is not saying something about the person, but it is my reaction towards that person. Three philosophers affected by Hume were AJ Ayer, CL Stevenson and Hare.AJ Ayer According to Ayer, when we make a judgement, it can be classified as 1. empirical or factual 2. logical or analytical 3. emotive Ayer said that ethical statements are non-statements because you cannot verify them (as in analytical statements) and you cannot make them as a statement of fact (empirical statement or factual). Ethical statements such as good, just expresses oneÃ¢â¬â¢s emotions (emotivism) Ã¢â¬â a statement depending on oneÃ¢â¬â¢s feelings. For Ayer ethical statements are meaningless. Ethical concepts, such as good , cannot be analysed because they are not real oncepts at all Ã¢â¬â they are false concepts. He stated, Ã¢â¬ËThe presence of an ethical symbol (good is an ethical symbol) in a statement adds nothing to its factual content, meaning nothing is stated about the nature of the ethical symbol. Thus Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ has no value when describing someone or something Ã¢â¬â for Ayer Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ was just a way of expressing a feeling about the person/object concerned. CL Stevenson Statements such as Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ do not say anything about state of facts but says only about oneÃ¢â¬â¢s behaviour, oneÃ¢â¬â¢s attitudes and oneÃ¢â¬â¢s feelings.Ethical statements such as Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ do not express a belief, only attitudes. Beliefs are based on reason, attitudes and oneÃ¢â¬â¢s emotions (emotive). Ã¢â¬ËMoral discourses are primarily not informative but influentialÃ¢â¬â¢, says Stevenson. Thus when I say Ã¢â¬ËJohn is goodÃ¢â¬â¢, I am expressing my feeling s and at the same time influencing others by my statement. Stevenson, being emotive, says that ethical language, such as good, does not give us information about the person or object Ã¢â¬â they simply express oneÃ¢â¬â¢s emotions. They simply intent to inform, they do not say anything about the nature.Hare While Ayer and Stevenson said that ethical statements are non-rational, non-logical, Hare is introducing rationality. He says that by a statement one influences another person, if the latter accepts it, and to do so he must understand it and he has to use his reason. Another point that Hare brought up is that an ethical statement can be 1. emotive 2. action guiding To guide it involves rationality. So ethical statements are not simply giving a piece of information, but action guiding (presciptivism Ã¢â¬â moral commitment to the giving or accepting of a command).Hare says that Ã¢â¬Ëa right action is one which ought to be doneÃ¢â¬â¢ while Ã¢â¬Ëa wrong action is one that ought not to be doneÃ¢â¬â¢. The prescriptive theory holds that the words Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ or Ã¢â¬ËbadÃ¢â¬â¢ are used not simply to command but to comment (=give an advice to do or not to do). Ã¢â¬ËGoodÃ¢â¬â¢ as applied to objects. It is important to distinguish between Ã¢â¬ËmeaningÃ¢â¬â¢ and Ã¢â¬ËcriteriaÃ¢â¬â¢. Meaning always has a value, but criteria (the description) is different. Ã¢â¬ËThis marker is goodÃ¢â¬â¢ or Ã¢â¬ËThis microphone is goodÃ¢â¬â¢. The meaning is the same as the marker writes and the microphone amplifies sound. As applied to people, if I say, Ã¢â¬ËJohn is a good manÃ¢â¬â¢.If we stick to the idea of Hare, that moral discourse, ethical statements, are action guiding, am I saying that Ã¢â¬Ëif you want a good man choose JohnÃ¢â¬â¢. It does not make sense. So when we place human beings as morally good, we are not talking about use or function. Hare deals with the distinction of the function and by treating the moral sense of good , it becomes an advice for imitation rather than a choice. A weak point of Hare: he still says that moral statements (such as good) still not saying anything about the person, but simply is a matter of influencing others and telling others to imitate him.Moral discourse is not only influential but action guiding Ã¢â¬â brings in rationality. He is still an emotivist saying that if an object is good, I am action guiding you; if a person is good I am just telling you to imitate him. Functionalist approach The functionalist approach is defining good in terms of aim and purpose. Good is the fulfilment of a function. For example a marker is good because it fulfils its function Ã¢â¬â it writes. If you are saying something is good, you are saying something about the object. O am not reflecting my emotions on an object (thus not an emotivist).A functionalist approach is based on its function. An emotivist approach is based on the attitude. A person chooses the good from the bad chooses a good life, because we are aiming at a Ã¢â¬ËgoalÃ¢â¬â¢ at an Ã¢â¬ËendÃ¢â¬â¢. Aristotle is saying that there is something in-built in every object, in every person, to seek the good Ã¢â¬â the good being that at which all things aim. For a person to live a good life, he must understand the purpose of the human life. The purpose of human life is common to all humans, from a philosophical point of view Ã¢â¬â to have a good life.Aristotle defined end or purpose as Ã¢â¬Ëthat for the sake a thing is doneÃ¢â¬â¢ and good Ã¢â¬Ëas that at which all things aimÃ¢â¬â¢. Aristotle aid that God and nature do nothing in vain Ã¢â¬â that everything in the universe has been created to achieve a particular purpose. According to Aristotle the purpose of all human beings is the same. To understand the meaning of the word Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ and of the Ã¢â¬Ëgood lifeÃ¢â¬â¢, we have to understand the purpose of the human life and thus the metaphysics of the universe. In attempt ing to answer the meaning of Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢, Aristotle looked at the dynamic elements of the world around us (oak tree, chimpanzees, humans and so on).This is the general characteristics which defines AristotleÃ¢â¬â¢s philosophy (metaphysics and ethics) and teleological (the study of the ends and purpose of things). According to PlatoÃ¢â¬â¢s metaphysical views, he came with two kinds of worlds, the world of ideal and the world of reality. What we see is not the real world but an imitation of the ideal world. So substance in the ideal world is not included in the real world. Aristotle was PlatoÃ¢â¬â¢s student but he still rejected PlatoÃ¢â¬â¢s approach. Aristotle brought together the world of ideal and the world of reality.What we see is not an imitation Ã¢â¬â it is real. To explain the universe, Aristotle gave the theory of the four causes. 1. natural cause 2. formal cause 3. effective cause 4. final cause The theory of the four causes explains the dynamic nature of all the animate objects including human beings. In that way we can understand the goal, the purpose of the life of a human being, thus the meaning of a good life and the meaning of the word good. Metaphysics gives us a way of understanding reality how the human person acts and behaves, this behaviour can be living a good or a bad life.Ethics and metaphysics are distinct but interrelated. The theory of the four causes goes to explain, that if we think of an example of something which is produced by an agent such as a statue Ã¢â¬â then Material cause Ã¢â¬â that which constitutes the statue eg marble Formal cause Ã¢â¬â the pattern or blue print determining the form and the result Efficient cause Ã¢â¬â agency producing the result eg tools, sculpture Final cause Ã¢â¬â the sake for which the cause is produced ie the end towards which the production is directed In the case of humans: Material cause Ã¢â¬â genes Formal cause Ã¢â¬â humanEfficient cause Ã¢â¬â freedom, i ntention, responsibility, practical reasoning Final cause Ã¢â¬â the good life In humans the efficient cause and final cause are dependent of the formal cause Ã¢â¬â the fact that I am a human being. We are free to make choices in the efficient cause, choosing responsibility or lack of it, thus effecting the final cause. Aristotle also spoke about potency and actuality. Potency is the potentiality of something or someone Ã¢â¬â characteristics, which if cultured, become actual. Actuality means when something, which is potential, becomes actual. So we have to askÃ¢â¬ ¦what is our potentiality?We have a potential to reach our goal in life. Conclusion Having been exposed to these three views, in the definition of the word Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢, I think that subjectivism is the view which least defines well the word Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢. This view shows relativism and emotivism. To define a word well, especially one with a moral value/a virtue, there has to be a norm, a mean, a stan dard and subjectivism fails to do this. On the other hand, the functionalist definition of the word Ã¢â¬ËgoodÃ¢â¬â¢ is the best definition of all as it shows a standard Ã¢â¬â its function; so there is no relativism involved.

WOMENÃ¢â¬â¢S ROLE IN SOCIETY: DISECTING THE MISOGONY IN SHAKESPEAREÃ¢â¬â¢S OTHELLO Judging Othello from a self-proclaimed feminist Audre LordeÃ¢â¬â¢s perspective allows the reader to see the double standards women faced in the Elizabethan society. Today our society assigns gender roles to children from birth. From the baby dolls needing care and EZ Bake Oven toys, little girls are encouraged at an early onset to lead domesticated lives. Boys on the other hand, are given cars and action figures that can take rough-housing because this is considered the type of behavior that was expected of them. Although gender roles are still a part of our society, we have made great progress from where our society was hundreds of years ago. Elizabethan era gender roles were established early on and were made clear. Having little to no control over their destiny, it was normally a fatherÃ¢â¬â¢s responsibility (or another male figure) to decide when and to whom his daughter would marry. A womanÃ¢â¬â¢s place was at home taking care of the family. To reinforce this, as children women were trained in the ways of home life so when they finally married they would know their role. ShakespeareÃ¢â¬â¢s Othello illustrates LordeÃ¢â¬â¢s argument that women are among the group of people Western history has conditioned to view their differences as binary opposites: Ã¢â¬Å"dominant/subordinate, good/bad, up/down, superior/inferiorÃ¢â¬ (Lorde 845) where men are considered to be Ã¢â¬Å"dominant/superiorÃ¢â¬ and women the subordinate/inferior.
