Short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, “The Birth-Mark”, is one of the best from the entire Hawthorne’s short stories collection “Mosses from an Old Manse”. The two main protagonists of this story are the beautiful young woman called Georgiana, and her husband Aylmer, the scientist, “proficient in every branch of natural philosophy,” as ironically written by author. On her cheek Georgiana has a single crimson birthmark, which many find quite attractive, but her husband is not one of them, and on the contrary, believes that this is the only flaw that spoils the perfect beauty.
This idea took hold of him more and more, and he could not adequately react to the sight of the birthmark. Finally, Georgiana with Aylmer decided to remove the birthmark. To do that, they came to the Aylmer’s laboratory, where he was working with his assistant, Aminadab, who helped him with preparations, meanwhile thinking that if Georgiana were his wife, he would not remove the birthmark.
Steve Jobs is a co-founder of the multimillion international corporation Apple. He is known in the business world not only as an American magnate and inventor of the one of the most popular computing products in the world. Many works and articles were written to analyse and examine the way Steve Jobs is conducting business and his visionary on the development of the corporation.
One could argue that the strategy to beat strong and established Microsoft Corporation on the market with more than fifty percent share should be exceptional in order to turn to success. By entering the segment with completely new, more capital intensive and more expensive on the outcome product is almost insane, as some of the critics and economists were arguing, when Steve boosted Apple production to compete with Microsoft and further concluded that it was Steve’s genius. What makes the corporation a success is the question that can never be answered entirely. Apple was born and brought to the top lines of the business world by the innovations and inventions along with initial investments and right marketing strategy that was developed under Steve Jobs’ leadership.
Animal rights are an aspect of the environmental law and an extremely interesting subject to talk about. First of all, because understanding of animal rights vary a lot from country to country. Secondly, we often talk about right or wrong treatment of animals, but do not really understand what the real legal aspects that should be considered in this case are. Many non-for-profit organizations care and try to participate in the animal rights initiatives and spread the knowledge about needs and rights of those, who cannot protect themselves from dominant and often cruel human behaviour. In spite of these efforts, legal interpretation of animal rights and the way we see them are at times two completely different things.
I would like to look at two countries, Armenia, Brazil and the UK and the way these governmental structures and social communities understand and implement animal rights on the example of the homeless dogs. These countries, from my perspective, are ideal to compare and contrast as for the levels of
Bermuda Triangle is widely known as the Devil’s Triangle and the place where mysterious and unpredictable events make people believe in the strength and power nature still has over its inhabitants. These beliefs and live myths have certain grounds and are kept being fed by numerous incidents happening in the Bermuda Triangle in the Atlantic Ocean. A lot of airplanes and large-tonnage vessels disappeared or broke down, passing through this area, and scientists cannot find any theory and sensible explanations that could cover all the doubts and questions related to the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle.
There are, however, several most legitimate theories that try to give purely scientific explanations to the disappearance of ships and airplanes in this area. Some of them simply deny any unusual nature of this place and claim that the level of incidents in this place is just as high as at any other point of the Atlantic Ocean, the others try to involve magnetic fields that affect mechanical elements of the ships and airplanes. One of the most interesting is the “river effect” of the Gulf Stream that takes away the objects due to its strong current nearby the Bermuda Triangle.
