According to Napoleon Bonaparte, four hostile newspapers are to be feared more than a thousand bayonets. This statement proves that Napoleon recognised the power of the press. so powerful is the influence of the press in modern times that it is rightly called the 'Fourth Estate', that is, the fourth most powerful institution influencing social order. The press, which includes newspapers and periodicals, is righily, a sort of a mirror which reflects social occurrences and movements. It can be called the 'eyes and ears' of the world. It is indeed the chronicle of current history.
The press does not merely play the role of recording events. It plays a very active and positive role in influencing events and shaping them. Through publicity campaigns the press can make or mar the image and the fate of public men, institutions and products. It is an effective and powerful means of expressing and moulding public opinion. The press creates awareness among people on matters of public interest and thereby educates people in general.
The press serves as a means of communication between the rulers and the ruled and is an effective medium for ventilating public grievances. The press is the watchdog of democracy. In
fact, the free press is the greatest safeguard of democracy and a necessary condition for its success. That is why a dictator's first attack is usually on the freedom of the press.
In our country we have been witnessing the power of the press. We are familiar with its crusades against social evils, bad administration, and against the attempts on the part of government to curb the freedom of the press. Sensational investigations conducted by leading dailies and their campaigns have exposed persons occupying even the highest positions in society and government.
But in the power of the press lies its responsibility as well. It must not indulge in cheap sensationalism, lies, misrepresentation and slander. It should not use...

Precipitation due to turbulent ascent
There are five types of precipitation.
(1) Convective precipitation
(2) Orographic precipitation
(3) Cyclonic precipitation
(4) Frontal precipitation
(5) Precipitation due to turbulent ascent
Convectional precipitation results from the heating of the earth's surface. The warm ground heats the air over it. As the air warms, the air molecules begin to move further apart. With increased distance between molecules, the molecules are less densely packed. Thus, the air becomes “lighter” and rises rapidly into the atmosphere. As the air rises, it cools. Water vapor in the air condenses into clouds and precipitation. This type of precipitation is common in the Prairies and Ontario.

Jeremy Bentham proposed the panopticon as a circular building with an observation tower in the centre of an open space surrounded by an outer wall. This wall would contain cells for occupants. This design would increase security by facilitating more effective surveillance. Residing within cells flooded with light, occupants would be readily distinguishable and visible to an official invisibly positioned in the central tower. Conversely, occupants would be invisible to each other, with concrete walls dividing their cells. Although usually associated with prisons, the panoptic style of architecture might be used in other institutions with surveillance needs, such as schools, factories, or hospitals.
Foucault's Discipline and Punish
In Discipline and Punish, Michel Foucault builds on Bentham's conceptualization of the panopticon as he elaborates upon the function of disciplinary mechanisms in such a prison and illustrated the function of discipline as an apparatus of power. The ever-visible inmate, Foucault suggests, is always "the object of information, never a subject in communication". He adds that,
"He who is subjected to a field of visibility, and who knows it, assumes responsibility for the constraints of power; he makes them play spontaneously upon himself; he inscribes in himself the power relation in which he simultaneously plays both roles; he becomes the principle of his own subjection" (202-203).
Foucault offers still another explanation for...

September 17, 2013 – Case #1: The importance of being independent (by Deloitte) Discussion Questions
One of the key roles of the external auditor is to protect the interest of the public. To achieve this, it is important for the public to trust and have confidence in the work of an auditor. It is crucial that auditors appear independent to the public in both fact and appearance. For this reason, it is the auditor’s responsibility to ensure that there are no personal or business relationships with anyone in a position of influence within the firm they are auditing. Even though the personality of the auditor might allow him to be unbiased and the audit is independence in fact, what is important is what the public perceives. Therefore, if the auditor is assigned to the audit team of a company that his/her uncle is the controller of that company; it definitely needs to be disclosed. It is not the nature of the relationship, but more importantly the position that the person has within the firm. A controller does have influence on financial reports. External users of the information may not accept that fairness and objectivity was exercised; and the information may be deemed unreliable because the...
...Importance and Value of Trees
Since the beginning, trees have furnished us with two of life's essentials, food and oxygen. As we evolved, they provided additional necessities such as shelter, medicine, and tools. Today, their value continues to increase and more benefits of trees are being discovered as their role expands to satisfy the needs created by our modern lifestyles.
Community and Social Value
Trees are an important part of every community. Our streets, parks, playgrounds and backyards are lined with trees that create a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment. Trees increase our quality of life by bringing natural elements and wildlife habitats into urban settings. We gather under the cool shade they provide during outdoor activities with family and friends. Many neighborhoods are also the home of very old trees that serve as historic landmarks and a great source of town pride.
Using trees in cities to deflect the sunlight reduces the heat island effect caused by pavement and commercial buildings.
Ecological and Environmental Value
Trees contribute to their environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. During the process of photosynthesis, trees take in carbon dioxide and produce the oxygen we breathe. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, "One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is...
Paulo Coelho explained, “Why is patience so important?" "Because it makes us pay attention.” Being patient and attention to detail are few of many characteristics that are essential to being a proficient healthcare provider. Healthcare providers have a very important job and these characteristics correspond to one another in everyday actions. I always thought of myself as a very patient person and while working at a daycare realized that along with patience came the importance of attention to detail.
Patience is very easy to describe when telling one how to do things, but putting it into practice and living in such manner takes one’s self-control. I have always enjoyed interacting with kids and when I had to get a job in high school, I decided that a daycare would be a great opportunity. The majority of my time was spent caring for toddlers. Patience is essential when working with toddlers. I had to juggle chasing around squeamish, playful, emotional kids who were going through their first year of life and preparing to move on to their terrible twos. There were many times when three or four kids were screaming and crying, and, at times I felt overwhelmed but had to keep my composure, so that I could calm them down.
Attention to detail is important as it points out and makes one realize how to do things right. While working with toddlers, I had to learn that when chaos was going on somebody needed attention. Daily I...

Name and Identity
The importance of name and identity in this novel is far more drastic than a reader could understand. A name has so much meaning that many people are not able to fathom it. A simple name change does not alter the fabric of a person. The changing of a name symbolizes the double identity of Gogol. In Lahiri’s novel, the main character fights an identity crisis because of his highly unusual name. Gogol struggles between two cultures to try and figure out his own identity and where he belongs. He attempts to create separation between himself and his parents’ worlds, but never feels authentic as Nikhil.
When Gogol starts kindergarten, his parents want him to go by “Nikhil” at school and “Gogol” at home. Gogol is bothered by this because he feels he does not want another name. “He is afraid to be Nikhil, someone he doesn’t know. Who doesn’t know him.” (Lahiri 19). He believes changing his name will change his identity. He thinks his name came through the train accident his father had. Gogol thinks that Nikhil is someone else and doesn’t want to be two people. As soon he turns eleven he then learns how unique his name is. By the time he is fourteen, Gogol hates his name. At the college party, Gogol introduces himself to Kim as “Nikhil,” instead of Gogol. This shows that Gogol has an identity changed. . It gives him the confidence to kiss her: "It hadn't been Gogol who had...
...Importance of Characterization
How can introducing characters to the reader play an essential role in the story? There’s no doubt that the characters are important in fiction because the make events happen, so the way of introduce them to the reader surely makes a difference. Besides that, characters can be introduced to the reader not only by direct statements but also by what they do, say or think, by how other characters see them, by their names, by their appearance and also through dialogues. These are called the techniques of characterization. In order to make it clearer, we will talk about the two stories: James Joyce’s Araby and James Hurst’s The Scarlet Ibis. Araby is a short story about a guy who used to be insanely in love with a girl and then he was disappointed when he faced the reality and realized it was too good to be true, while the Scarlet Ibis is a short story about a guy whose pride has won over his love to his brother. The techniques of characterization used in these two stories and the changes that happened to the main characters (protagonists) will be discussed below.
First, let’s start analyzing the conflict in James Joyce’s Araby. As mentioned, it’s a short story narrated by an adult talking about how he was suddenly introduced to the adulthood and how it was different from his expectations. The protagonist in this story had that “confused adoration” for a girl which took him far away from reality, and this can be noticed...
