While the intent was to encourage students to delve into new fields of research, the overall diversity of the fair declined, as students assumed that if their projects did not completely fit into one of the given categories, then it was an ill

The theme of women’s and more specifically, her own right to pursue an education and a secular life runs throughout her response. The meat of the nun’s argument is easily identified when she states, “I do not study to write, even less to teach—which in only like myself were unseemly pride—but only to the end that if I study, I will be ignorant of less” (213). Essentially, she is stating that there are benefits of knowledge—that academia is vital in everyday life as well as in theological learning. By displaying her extensive knowledge about the Scriptures through the use of numerous quotes from the Bible, Sister Juana de la Cruz successfully demonstrates how important her scholarly background is to her understanding of the Word.

What does it mean?
As one of Shakespeare's all-time famous quotes, Hamlet's words have stood the test of time and are often quoted even today in both academia and pop culture. In the beginning of his fourth, and best known, soliloquy Hamlet muses about the conundrum of suicide. He wonders if one route is "nobler" than the next. At this point in the play, Hamlet has been unable to act upon his motives for personal revenge, and this frustrates him. Which is better, suffering as he has been

I am a firm believer in lifelong learning. I have been in academia since I was 4 years old and that is something that I simply enjoy. From a professional perspective and especially in the field of health and social care I do feel it is important to ensure that you are continually improving your knowledge, skills and practice. The field is quite dynamic, often changing as legislation and government initiative change. It is therefore essential for all who are working in this field to keep abreast with changes in practice and legislation. There is also an

advances and a perception of a possible future. This allows me to discuss the issues

From the beginning of recorded history, possibly before then, humans have found a necessity for classifying and categorizing every aspect of life. This need for order has been used to efficiently organize and clarify the endless details on Earth. This arrangement of objects in groups has also created a very sinister and volatile mindset that some people live by. This associative manner of classification has lead to the formation of beliefs in race identities, stereotypes, and superiority in the form of racism.

Naturally, there are three main points offered, when analyzing the role of Bethmann-Holloweg in the July Crisis. One of them, the sympathetic viewpoint, describes the German Imperial Chancellor as a victim of circumstance, rather weak, but totally guilt-free. The more critical viewpoint assigns him the characteristics of an aggressive expansionist and finally the neutral point balances out the two. It claims that Holloweg lost control, and desired no more than a limited war. Nonetheless, it is never certain how far the Chancellor was a crucial figure.To begin with, the sympathetic, and possibly very naive view is that the Chancellor did his best to avoid war and was a peace-loving statesman

This is always true for his tragic heroes, but what about his minor characters? They usually suffer just as much as the main characters. They usually exhibit character flaws. The difference is that they are rarely responsible for their own downfall; their circumstances come about from things outside of their control.
