A vast forest contains millions of trees, and on each tree are hundreds of leaves. A tiny single spark ignites and grows from a feeble spark, to a flickering flame to a mighty blaze. A magnificent towering inferno inhabits the entire forest, which minutes ago seemed impossible to change. A single minuscule spark can kindle an entire forest fire. Honourable judges, teachers and fellow students, my name is Talha Shaikh, and today I’m going to talk to you about how a single person, just like the spark, is capable of influencing the entire world. I am going to discuss how someone can make a difference, people who have influenced our world for the better, and evidence that proves it’s possible.

Firstly, how can someone influence the whole world? The change has to start with you, then your community and then eventually the entire Earth. Paul McCartney said “Think Globally. Act Locally.” This phrase urges people to consider the wellbeing of the entire planet and to take action in their own communities and cities. Think globally reminds us to think about the bigger picture, and act locally tells us to do something in our own neigbourhood to create positive change.

There are many ways that we can adapt to have a positive influence in the world. We can work towards being more eco-friendly and overcoming global warming by planting trees, recycling, conserving water and electricity. As well, we can raise awareness of social issues such as child labour, poverty etc. Raising funds and awareness for people suffering from various diseases, is also a great way to start making a difference. Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” To make a positive change you have to be informed about what is occurring around our planet.

Many great people in the past have contributed in shaping the world. My role model, Mahatma…...

...Digi-Sprint is the only treadmill that has a retractable integrated touch screen computer with Wi-Fi, voice reader and webcam. The screen is retractable to fit the different consumer’s different needs as some would prefer to have the screen at a distance while others prefer it to be at a close range. For consumers who do not like reading while running the voice reader would read out the required areas of the website. Another main feature of Digi-Sprint is that it is silent. It does not emit noise like other treadmills. (Refer to table 1 in the appendix for all the features of Digi-Sprint both tangible and intangible characteristics). 1.3 Brand Image and Brand Identity: “Brand identity is a combination of name, logo, and design.” (Blech, Blech, Kerr & Powell, 2009). Digi is short for digital which implies to the consumers that the treadmill is digitalised and sprint is supposed to represent the athletic factor of the treadmill. The brand image that the company wants consumers to associate with the Digi-Sprint is that it is a sophisticated, intelligent high-end brand treadmill that is revolutionary and entertaining. The sophisticated image is to be achieved through the sleek and complex design. Intelligent is accomplished through the sharp, quick and innovative interface; yet remaining user friendly. The High Definition (HD) touch screen, the modern design combined with the gloss or chrome finish, pricing, advertising and its placement in shops will attain the high-end......

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas Book Review loyalties. Bruno understands little of authority - failing to salute properly, doesn’t understand Herr Liszt’s lessons and doesn’t ‘get’ the romance of Kotler’s uniform. He only sees the brutality, and tries to help Shmuel because all he can see is the pathos of his situation. Boyne writes that he deliberately wanted to show the similarities between the two boys, making them the same age, and height, and even dressing them alike in the striped pyjamas, so that they are indistinuishable. They die, holding hands and he won’t ‘let it go’. Boyne says he wanted them to be a ‘mirror image’ of each other: what’s so different about two nine year olds, after all.  One of the most difficult aspects of the book in the view of Rabbi Benjamin Blech, is that Bruno seems not to be aware ‘of the constant presence of death’. He argues Boyne plays down the horror too much, that not even a child could have been ignorant of it - though the reader glimpses it dimly. Kathryn Hughes suggests, in Boyne’s defence, that ‘Bruno's innocence comes to stand for the willful refusal of all adult Germans to see what was going on under their noses.’ On the title page, Boyne describes his story as a ‘fable’. In an interview, he said he felt it was important not to pretend it was ‘fully based in reality’, as that would be disrespectful. He says the moral is more important. Boyne says in the blurb and in his author’s note that Bruno reaches a fence, they ‘still exist’ and he hopes we never reach......

Jazz Im Totalitarismus

...von Musikinstrumenten für eine Jazz-Band mit: Saxofon, Banjo und Schlagzeuginstrumente. Parnach selbst konnte kein Instrument spielen, aber mit Hilfe von Schallplatten, die er in Paris erstanden hatte und die hauptsächlich Tanz- Rhythmen nach amerikanischem Vorbild beinhalteten, lehrte er die Moskauer Musikanten, diese Musik zu spielen. Obwohl ihm selbst, wie Aufzeichnungen belegen, das Feingefühl für die Musik fehlte. Er selbst agierte als Tänzer, und auf plastische Weise schuf er Gestalten, die er „Giraffen- Götze“ nannte.(, Autor: V.Andrücha) „All diese Tänze entsprechen daher dem Ausdruck eines Jazzorchesters, einer Musik der Dissonnanzen, Synkopen, des Krachs, emporstrebenden Blechs, quietschender Knarren, des Pfeifens, Heulens und der Alarmsirenen, die alle zusammen wie alterniernde Stromschlüsse klingen.“ Das erste Konzert Parnachs Band „Erstes Exzentrisches Orchester der Russischen Sozialistischen Sowjetrepublik – Valentin Panarchs Jazz Band“ fand am 1. Oktober 1922 in Moskau statt. Dieser Tag wird als Geburtstag des sowjetischen bzw. russischen Jazz bezeichnet wird. Doch ist es keine leichte Geburt. Radiosender spielten die neue Musik nicht und ihre Liebhaber blieben zunächst unter sich. Unter jenen befanden sich jedoch der innovative Theaterregisseur Meierhold, der den Jazz als erster in einer seiner Inszenierungen integrierte und durch sein Tourprogramm zum ersten zarten Erfolg verhalf. Immernoch......

Greed Intro Essay

...The use of greed in short stories "Greed will always leave you dissatisfied because you'll never be able to get everything you desire. Greed never allows you to think you have enough; it always destroys you by making you strive ever harder for more." (Rabbi Benjamin Blech). This statement points to the idea that one's greed will never be satisfied because it will always keep wanting more. Greed is only achieved through an individual's selfish desires which creates conflicts in personal relationships and society. The short stories The Rocking Horse Winner, D.H. Lawrence, The Lottery Ticket, Anton Chekhov and Twins, Eric Wright illustrate this truth. These three short stories clearly portray that greed destroys relationships, fosters materialism within society, and causes betrayals. Greed can destroy relationships to a point where two people detest each other. In The Rocking Horse Winner, the relationship between a mother and her son is shattered because the mother continuously wants more money. Money makes her feel as if she is elite in comparison to others. Her need for money completely destroys the son as he feels like it is his duty to help raise money for his mother. Even with his help, she was never grateful for the $5000 that was gifted from the son. She complains that it was not enough and still wants more money. Her greed places too much stress on her son, and he passes away due to all the anxiety and pressure he feels from his mother's greed of money. "His eyes...

...Philosopher. He was a student of Socrates and a teacher to Aristotle. Plato brought forth the concept of the citizen hero. In his work The Apology he told the story of the trial of Socrates. Plato put those who read The Apology in the role of jurors, not only were they judging Socrates, but they also in turn had to judge themselves. This was the first time that people judged themselves. This is an important distinction to me because I do not believe in judging others. Perhaps Plato said it best “be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting harder battle”. In The Apology it also brought forth the concept that mystery is meaningful. This is another belief that I have: there are some things that we simply will never know, and that it is ok. Abraham-blech In the fourth module I came across several individuals who each added to my thought process on the meaning of life. St. Francis of Assisi was born circa 1181 and was an Italian catholic friar and preacher. He believed that romance was really the third pathway of conversion and through his thinking he became a pivotal figure in the development of western culture. He believed in the troubadour aspect of love. That love is person to person, not person to god. This was controversial to everything that the church stood for. St. Francis felt that romantic love could be converted to the service of Christian faith providing hope and love for the betterment of society. This was seen as a blend of the traditional hero and saint. I too......

...Bevor die Ergebnisse der Umfrage dargelegt werden, wird näher auf die Methodik der Fragebogenauswertung eingegangen. Im letzten Teil werden die Ergebnisse interpretiert und mit der Theorie abgeglichen. Den Abschluss bildet der Transfer, welcher Erklärungsansätze für die Ergebnisse der Umfrage darlegt. 2.1 Theoretische Grundlagen Mit der wachsenden Bedeutung des weiblichen Geschlechts im Vertrieb beschäftigt sich seit einigen Jahren eine Vielzahl von Experten. Sie möchten herausfinden, ob es geschlechterspezifische Unterschiede im Verkaufsprozess gibt und wo diese genau liegen. Folgt man den Aussagen zahlreicher Wissenschaftler, so lassen sich verhaltensspezifische Unterschiede der Geschlechter durch den Aufbau des Gehirns begründen (Blech, 2003). Tatsächlich konnte nachgewiesen werden, dass männliche und weibliche Gehirne unterschiedlich aufgebaut sind und demnach unterschiedlich funktionieren. Experten sehen hier beispielsweise den Grund für die ausgeprägte Systematik der Männer oder die überdurchschnittliche Empathie der Frauen. Es lässt sich vermuten, dass sich diese Verhaltensunterschiede sich auch im Verkaufsverhalten von Männern und Frauen widerspiegeln. Im Folgenden sollen die geschlechterspezifischen Unterschiede aus der Theorie dargelegt werden, gegliedert in die drei Phasen des Verkaufsprozesses: Vorbereitung, Durchführung und Nachbereitung. 2.1.1 Geschlechterspezifisches Verhalten vor dem Verkaufsgespräch Männer und Frauen unterscheiden sich in der......

Die Butter wird dann eventuell bisschen klumpig, aber das macht nichts, wenn du später Mehl reintust sieht der Teig wieder vernünftig aus). Mehl, Speisestärke und Backpulver mischen (ich siebe das immer noch, dann geht der Teig besser auf und ist was lockerer, ist aber nicht unbedingt notwendig :D). Dann das Mehl abwechselnd mit der Milch unter die Buttermischung rühren, gut verrühren zu einem glatten Teig. 2. Teig auf ein gefettetes tiefes Backblech geben (ich tue immer Backpapier auf das Backblech und fette das mit Margarine ein, dann klebt der Teig nicht so am Blech, aber vllt hast du ne bessere Idee), mit Stachelbeeren belegen. Die 4 Eiweiß mit 2 TL Zitronensaft (schneide die Zitrone in der Hälfte durch und presse den Saft mit der Hand aus sieh zu dass die Kerne nicht ins Eiweiß fallen) steif schlagen. (Jetzt kannst du schon den Ofen anschalten, damit er vorheizen kann ;) ) 200g Zucker einrieseln lassen (also Eiweiß weiter schlagen und währenddessen den Zucker da einstreuen).

...заимствования может служить болг. пароход /parax'ot/ 'пароход', пришедшее из русского языка еще в XIX в. В этом слове русская соединительная гласная передана соответственно ее живому звучанию, тогда как в других подобных словах, заимствованных болгарским языком в наши дни (трудоден, самокритика и др.), в согласии с русской орфографией пишется о, которое по-болгарски и читается как /о/. Заимствование может быть прямым или опосредованным (второй, третьей и т. д. степени), т. е. заимствованием заимствованного слова. Так, в русском языке есть прямые заимствования из немецкого, например суррогат, рейхстаг, бундестаг и т. д., а есть заимствования через посредство польского языка, например бляха (ср. польск. blacha с тем же значением и нем. Blech 'жесть'), крахмал (ср. польск. krochmal и нем. Kraftmehl с тем же значением), рынок (ср. польск. rynek 'площадь, рынок' и нем. Ring 'кольцо, круг'). В языки народов Балканского полуострова за время турецкого ига вошло много «турцизмов», но значительная часть этих слов в самом турецком языке – заимствования из арабского или персидского. Есть заимствованные слова с очень долгой и сложной историей, так называемые «странствующие слова», например лак: к нам оно пришло из немецкого или голландского, в эти языки – из итальянского, итальянцы же заимствовали его скорее всего у арабов, к которым оно попало через Иран из Индии (ср. в пали, литературном языке индийского средневековья, lakha 'лак из красной краски и какой-то смолы').

...shipment than it would to buy from other sources (p. 23). According to Matson (2013), local foods have become increasingly popular, and though it is more expensive to purchase food locally, it is also what many customers desire and one thing they are willing to pay more for (p. 23). Cohen hired ten employees. According to Mandabcha (2011), the restaurant industry is the second largest employer in the United States (p. 80). The second problem that Cohen ran into was keeping his restaurant kosher. There are very specific rules for food establishments to obtain and retain their kosher status. In the case of a kosher commissary, says Blech (2009), all processing equipment is isolated between two separate sections for meat and dairy, even with duplicate sets of equipment such as tables, dishwashers and ovens (p. 12). This equipment is color-coded, too. But Blech says restaurants have even stricter rules, and must choose a designation — either meat or dairy — known as Ba’sar b’Cholov — to serve their customers (p. 13). When a restaurant decides it wants to be kosher, Cohen said, it has to go to an organization that gives out kosher certification so their clientele know they are officially kosher. They have to pay quarterly for this $1,000. The organization has to come out and check all the restaurant’s products at random times just like a health inspector would. Restaurants must also have a supervisor of kosher food called a Mashgiach, who Cohen pays 20 dollars an hour to ensure......
