The existence of every human being is defined by the fact that people are social creatures. Those, who surround us, whom we see everyday at our college, working place, at home or on the TV screens and pages of fashion magazines are actually our mirrors, our measuring criteria. Every day looking at other people we ask themselves “Am I good enough?”. And this is inevitable, as it is in the nature of humans to compare themselves to other people, to let them become a criterion one should look at. But the results one gets from this comparison depend mostly on the attitudes these mirrors share towards her. If they perceive this person as an equal, her self-appreciation is quite high, but when their attitudes are contemptuous or indulgent the picture individual gets about herself, and the surrounding world is strained and artificial.read more
With All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque has written what is arguably the best, most true-to-life war novel ever published. The book is particularly interesting from the point of view of the allied countries because, instead of being told by an American or English soldier as many war stories are, it is told from the point of view of an enemy soldier: Paul Bäumer, a nineteen-year-old volunteer in the German Army during World War I(Remarque 5).read more
Kenneth Blanchard, author of the book “Whale Done!” believes that human relationships is now more that ever, in need of high attention from the society as it remains to be the sole binder of the whole human community all around the world. Obviously, increasingly there is economic interdependency among nations. A global communications network, like a gigantic central nervous system, links every nation of the earth. As ideas, information, and technology are exchanged, cultures merge and adapt to one another. Throughout the world, people dress more alike than ever before. Cities of the world share much in common—police, luxury hotels, traffic, stores, banks, pollution. Thus, as the peoples of the world come together, we witness what some describe as an emerging world culture.read more
Courtly love is never meant to empower women. It institutionalizes women as objects of noble men like kings and princes who have the power to do whatever they want of their women. Courtly love has not elevated women into a higher status where they can live as happily and as freely as they wish. It has instead imprisoned women as they are forced into marrying men that they do not love at all. In “Yonec” Marie de Francis illustrated how a woman became a victim of courtly love. She had to suffer as she was imprisoned in the tower by his jealous husband. Marie de Francis however, reveals in her poem too that women when they become sick and tired and angered of the system and the structure where they have to be enslaved by the whims and caprices of men have the power to go against whatever rule. The lady in “Yonec” betrayed his husband for a handsome man whom she learned to love and even bore him a son. It shows how women can be strong even to disobey the commandments of God not to commit adulterous act. It shows how angry women can be as manipulative in their desire to seek justice for the oppression and for the betrayal that they have suffered. In “Yonec”, the lady was avenged of her pains and the death of her lover even when she was already dead. Her child killed his stepfather.read more
A story about a high school football team’s journey not only through an undefeated season but also through the breaking down of barriers between black and white people, Walt Disney Pictures’ Remember the Titans is a perfect picture of how people view themselves and those around them through what we now can call ‘schemas’ and ‘stereotypes’.

Patient Satisfaction Surveys for hospital institutions had been further pursued to increase the performance competencies of the different healthcare organizations in the society today. As technology advances, the head officers in the federal state had found a more imperative way of motivating hospital institutions in providing service to their patients today. The surveys gathered from the surveys are then posted in the internet to help patients decide on which healthcare institutions are they supposed trust their medical needs with. The question though is the implication of such surveys on the decisions of the patients in reality; are they actually affected by the said survey reports? The four major studies that are to be reviewed herein actually pertain to the response to the said inquiry of survey effectiveness.read more

Samuel Barclay Beckett (12 April 1906 to 22 December1989) was an Irish dramatist, novelist and poet. Beckett's work is stark, fundamentally minimalist, and, according to some interpretations, deeply pessimistic about the human condition. The perceived pessimism is mitigated both by a great and often wicked sense of humour, and by the sense, for some readers, that Beckett's portrayal of life's obstacles serves to demonstrate that the journey, while difficult, is ultimately worth the effort. Similarly, many posit that Beckett's expressed "pessimism" is not so much for the human condition but for that of an established cultural and societal structure which imposes its stultifying will upon otherwise hopeful individuals; it is the inherent optimism of the human condition, therefore, that is at tension with the oppressive world. His later work explores his themes in an increasingly cryptic and attenuated style. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1969 "for his writing, which—in new forms for the novel and drama—in the destitution of modern man acquires its elevation".read more
Very often, literature studies in the primary level always allude to Edgar Allan Poe’s Annabel Lee and The Bells as childhood experiences. Nonetheless, Poe’s life story, undoubtedly often do not mention such experiences in his childhood. Many sources agreed however, that Poe experienced death or loss of the women he cared for in his lifetime. It is safe to conclude then that some of these experiences contributed to and had inspired the contents of his poems and stories.read more
