Good characters in Macbeth are less in number, and also seem to be characteristically less deeply constructed than the evil or corrupted ones. Everybody has a seed of corruption planted deeply in them, ready to spurt into blossom. Those who let their evil side win, the becoming the true villains acts on these dark drives and commits something morally wrong, like our man character, firstly portrayed as a dashing military genius, Macbeth. When he first receives the prophecies, he is not bothered by the fact that it was spoken by three mysterious, ugly and seemingly evil witches, he actually considered the words of the prophecy.. "Two truths are told,... but what is not" (line 137-152,
Beowulf’s ability to accept Unferth’s apology instead of holding a grudge shows he is forgiving and humble about others. Thorin does a similar thing but in reverse. In The Hobbit, Thorin demonstrates his ability to apologize to others after Bilbo bravely saves Thorin from being killed from his battle with Azog. When they are finally safe from danger, Thorin, realizing his misjudgments, immediately apologizes to Bilbo, stating he was wrong for saying and thinking such negative things about him. Thorin is willing to admit his wrongs and correct them, which is incredibly noble and heroic for a dwarf as Gandalf tells Bilbo they are very prideful and stubborn.
The hero is one of the quintessential literary archetypes, found in nearly every work from The Epic of Gilgamesh to Harry Potter. Sometimes they are a paragon of human virtue, a shining and unattainable ideal. Sometimes they are broken and bitter. The latter's journeys assure us that even the most flawed person can better themselves, yet the standards we hold heroism to indicate society’s bias in our view of the ideal person. The classical traits of a hero are honesty and courage, and so a bias towards independence over obedience can be seen.
What makes him an anti-hero is he got his wealth from illegal businesses. He also kept pursuing Daisy even though she was married. He was a “central character who lacked heroic attributes” (Ray). Un heroes often goof up as a hero but somehow everything works out and they are given the credit. “They are never thought of or are questioned.
Proctor is a perfect example of a tragic hero. Aristotle’s second point states that although the tragic hero is great he or she is not perfect. The hero is human just like the rest of us, but has a higher position in society.
Even though action research is gaining popularity in the research arena, it has been challenged if it is “a legitimate form of inquiry” (Stringer, 2014, p. 41). There are a variety of reasons why this is so. Cohen and Manion (1985) point out the main drawback in action research that it lack what is commonly understood to be scientific rigor, related to the validity, reliability and replicability of research. Nunan (2006) and Burns (1999) both identify that researcher faces problems when conducting action research: the teacher/researcher may find it difficult to critically reflect on their own teaching practice at the same time, and may lacks expertise in carrying out such a project. There can be also difficulties in identifying participants,
We often base our assumptions off of hypothesizing how someone else might feel or react in a certain situation. Yet we do not have the same point of view, or the same feelings which makes assumptions a dangerous thing. The Golden Rule might work in a certain situation and that will give you respect and confidence towards that person. However, you cannot always know what that person feels or want. People constantly “help” others in the way that they themselves would want to be helped, but the other person does not feel helped at all, because it is not the way that they want to be
I was confused by the number of roles described and did not see how this complexity contributed to simplifying conflict resolution. As a helping professional, I need to be convinced that I have a key role to play and this long list of roles made me feel like I cannot contribute in a significant way. My confusion increased when Barsky (2014) described the role of penalizer and stated that some helping professions would prefer not to penalize their clients. Does this mean that my use of grades as a teacher is somehow bad professional practice? Barsky (2014) also suggested that penalties may be morally wrong in some cases and that professionals must decide “whether the ends justify the means” (p. 14).
Sense perception is the understanding of something with the use of one’s senses, which are, sight, taste, smell, touch, and hearing. In Volleyball we tend to use our sight, touch, and hearing senses the most. Volleyball is a sport that requires constant physical contact with the ball, but it’s important to know how and where you must touch the ball in each play to ensure accuracy. Something I constantly struggled with in Volleyball was setting, I would always slap the ball with my palms which would only smack the ball up a little then have it fall down to the ground. I had to learn to set the ball with my fingertips in order to give my set power and accuracy.
In my opinion, helping several of them won’t be a solution to the refugee problem. Maybe helping some of them might fasten the progress, but it won’t be the best and most accurate solution. I believe there are tons of NGOs where they can get help. They got the biggest responsibility. Also, governments should help to find the solutions too!
Mia Hamm has played goalkeeper in one of her games because the U.S. team used all their substitutes, so Hamm knows how pressured goalies feel during games. The goalkeeper’s reaction to a flying ball can determine the outcome of the game. Goalkeepers must always have concentration and be good with their eyes and mouth. An important quote that caught my eye is when Hamm says,
There may be questions on whether West is qualified to relay this information since he is an ‘outsider’ considering his background on the topic. Contrary to that aspect of ethos, the other angle is in the values that the video renders: the worth placed on the ‘underdogs’ of society, for they may have the resilience to continue
These these three topics were heavily discuss in the reading “Privilege, Power, and Difference,” by Allan G. Johnson. The most compelling subject about this reading is about how having awareness is the key to becoming part of the solution. Power, privilege, and oppression exists, but people don’t really acknowledge it. Anybody can help, but people do not feel obliged
For some, this may be impossible. One must be willing to ask if something is bothering that other individual, and if so, to have the courage to temporarily abandon one 's space until he or she is able to complete objectives. Lastly, a critical thinker must have high motivation to be able to succeed. The only way one can overcome the lack of essential knowledge on a subject is study to reach a sufficient level of understanding before making judgments. This may require the critical thinker to ask many questions, which can be unsettling to those asked to respond.
A person who is a good leader may have many different qualities. First, if you’re a leader you must accept that not everyone will agree with your stance on issues, and you may not even get credit for all your accomplishments as a leader. A good leader is someone who leads by example, not force. Set a good example for those following you. Instead of forcing them to do things the way you think it should be done, show them that you are doing the right thing and that they are capable of making moral decisions too.
