Lord of the Flies
19 November, 2012
Good or Evil Humans are born both good and evil. Some believe humans are born evil and some think it depends on your morals. William Golding, the author of Lord of the Flies believes humans are born evil but society keeps us from showing it. He believes all humans are born innately evil. Golding shows the reader this through examples in Lord of the Flies. Jeffery Kluger, the author of Time magazine article “What Makes Us Moral” believes it depends on how you are raised. William Golding and Jeffery Kluger have different opinions on if people are born innately good or innately evil.
William Golding, the author of Lord of the Flies, believes humans are born innately evil through Lord of the Flies. Golding shows humans are evil through this quote "Roger stooped, picked up a stone, aimed, and threw it at Henry-threw it to miss" (Golding 62). This shows humans are evil because Roger is devolving from civilization and society is the only thing keeping him from Henry. Roger’s arm is controlled by civilization which is stopping him from throwing the rock at Henry. Another example is when the boys kill Simon. "A thing was crawling out of the forest. It came darkly, uncertainly. The shrill screaming that rose before the beast was like a pain. The beast stumbled into the horseshoe." (Golding 152). This shows humans are evil because the boys kill Simon even though they know he will be the only one to emerge from the forest. Simon’s death is showing the boys are devolving from civilization to somewhat of bad humans in their own microcosm on the island. Another example is when the boys kill the female pig. "Here, struck down by the heat, the sow fell and the hunters hurled themselves at her. This dreadful eruption from an unknown world made her frantic; she squealed and bucked and the air was full of sweat and…...

Ferrari F355 - Can I Afford It?

...Speed, force, high performance, style and luxury are all the things you dream of in a car. In fact, that is exactly what comes to mind when you think about a Ferrari. One of the greatest models created by Ferrari is the F355. The sound this car makes is incredible, that makes you fall deeply in love with. No other model in the Ferrari line can make such an awesome sound when driving, like the F355. But of course this comes with a heavy price. The maintenance of this vehicle can run from 5,000 to $8,500.00 for a 15,000-mile service, compare to $329.00 on a 2004 C5 corvette per corvetteactioncenter.com. Now imagine you owning a F355, what would you do? What kind of people do you think it will attract? Will you keep the car for a long time? If I owned a F355, I would probably sleep in it on the first day of purchase. I’m sure it would not be the most comfortable place to sleep in, but it would give me such a satisfaction to know I actually own a Ferrari. Plus, I would not want to step out of the car for one moment for at least the first couple of days. It would be my special place to go to when I’m having a bad day. In addition, I would probably take it to the racetracks, or the desert just to drive it as fast as I can, and to hear the sound of the engine. But my ultimate goal would be to out run a police officer minus being on the ten o’clock news being chased by a gang of police officers. Owning a F355 would be the best toy ever. It would be the ultimate swag-up, in......

Owning a Ferrari means that you have arrived in style. Only the very rich can even dream of owning a Ferrari. The Ferrari motorcar company is the brainchild of Enzo Ferrari, an Italian who started his career as a small carmaker. The 125 Sport was the first ever Ferrari motorcar. Enzo Ferrari did not intend to build road cars, when he formed the Scuderia Ferrari in 1929. After World War I, Ferrari became a driver on the Alfa-Romeo team. Following a victory at Ravenna, the family of Francesco Baracca, presented him with a small charred plaque. Baracca had died in combat and the plaque was one of the parts of the Ferrari emblem. The Ferrari emblem with a yellow shield with a black horse in the middle is recognized across the world of automobile fanatics. This prancing horse became the symbol of Ferrari and it appeared on all the cars he drove. Ferrari automobiles have been featured in many films and television shows.

My Favorite Car

...The history of Ferrari In my opinion, Ferrari is one of the greatest auto company in the world. Ferrari was established in 1929 by Enzo Ferrari. At first, Enzo Ferrari was not interested in the idea of producing road cars when he formed Scuderia Ferrari. It is very difficult in the first few years. After the second war of the world. In 1947, Ferrari built its own automobile factory to produce the first car for general road driving--Ferrari 125s. And a lot of cars are produced in the next few years. Ferrari got many champions in car contests by these cars. It made Ferrari to be a great auto company. Most of the Ferrari car are handmade, so the production is very low. Unfortunately, the low production and sale are difficult to support the huge overhead of racing team, Ferrari often get in economic problems. However, due to the high reputation of Ferrari, many times to win honors for Italian, Ferrari has become a representative image of the Italian automotive industry. So Ferrari got the help from FIAT. Ford Motor Company was interested in buying Ferrari. But Enzo Ferrari refused. In 1969 Ferrari agreed to be bought by FIAT, and the condition is FIAT shall not influence its racing activities in the future. As a comparison Rolls-Royce and Lamborghini both be sold to Germany. Ferrari insisted on and become the pride of Italy. The philosophy of Ferrari Enzo Ferrari said the best car of Ferrari always be the next one. Constant pursuit of success is Ferrari’s philosophy.......

...Ferrari A powerful brand with millions of fans is an awesome start, but reaching the select few actually interested in purchasing a Ferrari requires some special sauce. Reaching Ferrari's extremely targeted consumer is no easy feat, but as the digital agency for Ferrari, we know what to look for. Before we start creating the right solution, we take the time to ask the right questions. We conducted keyword research, examined competitor tactics and results, and even uncovered where serious customers were landing when they searched for Ferrari (usually dealership sites). With all of this research in mind, we determined the best digital marketing strategies and crafted several tactics to hit the mark. Retargeting Ferrari's website receives a staggering amount of traffic every day. Using advanced tracking methods, we identify which visitors' behaviors reflect that of a targeted consumer. We show banner ads to these visitors (to the tune of more than half a million a month) when they visit other websites to drive them back to Ferrari. Direct Mail Sometimes conveying a sense of luxury is best accomplished with something physical. A select list of potential consumers received a direct mailer that reflected the quality and personalization of the Ferrari experience (which we used to track the effectiveness of each individual print piece). Search Marketing If they're searching, they're interested. That's why when someone looks for information on one of Ferrari's automotive......

Ferrari: a Story of Dedication, Distinction, and Really, Really Fast Cars

...Ferrari: A Story of Dedication, Distinction and Really, Really Fast Cars. Speed, power and beauty, these are the words that come to mind when you think of one of the greatest names in automobiles, Ferrari, Manufacturing outstanding cars since 1947, Ferrari has stayed ahead of the majority of its competitors tand built a global luxury brand that includes more than sports cars.

...a classier service. Both types of companies reach their segments. Ferrari vs Renault Clio 3. The main thing is they both meet up the expectations. A Ferrari is a car which you dream about. Every little teenage boy would look at the poster of a Ferrari and says, when I grow up, I’ll buy one for myself. No one would ever say oh look a Renault Cliio, that’s my dream car. But this does not mean that Clio is bad, - both cars serve their purpose. Ferrari is a classed a supercar, therefore it has to be completely different from the little economic hatchback Clio. Thus, the operations are different as well. For example let’s take production: Ferrari is still mostly hand built, which means every single Ferrari built in the Maranello factory is not exactly the same as others and it takes a lot of time to hand-build a supercar with every detail made in outstanding quality. As for Renault Clio, it is made to be compact, pretty and economical, so they try to minimize costs to keep their product running against competitors. Clios are assembled on the assembly lines and almost all of it is automatized, probably a new car is made every other minute. Sales are different too. You can’t just walk in and buy a new model Ferrari. After the announcement of a new model, it usually takes more than a year of waiting in the queue to get yours. As for Clio, you can get one any time you want and you cant expect that a 300,000 Ferrari sales in quantities are as much as the Clio’s. 6. Every......

Ferrari

...Company background: Ferrari S.p.A. is an Italian sports car manufacturer based in Maranello, Italy. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929, as Scuderia Ferrari, the company sponsored drivers and manufactured race cars before moving into production of street-legal vehicles as Ferrari S.p.A. in 1947. Throughout its history, the company has been noted for its continued participation in racing, especially in Formula One, where it has had great success. Ferrari road cars are generally seen as a symbol of luxury and wealth. Enzo Ferrari wasn't initially interested in the idea of producing road cars when he formed Scuderia Ferrari (literally "Ferrari Stable", and usually used to mean "Team Ferrari", it is correctly pronounced [skudeˈriːa]) in 1928 as a sponsor for amateur drivers headquartered in Modena. Ferrari prepared, and successfully raced, various drivers in Alfa Romeo cars until 1938, when he was hired by Alfa Romeo to head their motor racing department. In 1941, Alfa Romeo was confiscated by the fascist government of Benito Mussolini as part of the Axis Powers' war effort. Enzo Ferrari's division was small enough to be unaffected by this. Because he was prohibited by contract from racing for four years, the Scuderia briefly became Auto Avio Costruzioni Ferrari, which ostensibly produced machine tools and aircraft accessories. Also known as SEFAC (Scuderia Enzo Ferrari Auto Corse), Ferrari did in fact produce one race car, the Tipo 815, in the non-competition period. It was the......

...company ranks compared to their competitors creates the foundation of any search engine optimization strategy and gives the company a baseline to measure its results. There is no other vehicle out like the Ferrari; lambo and Toyota motors are in the works of making a similar vehicle. After a careful SWOTT analysis, a competitive landscape has been implemented to ensure the ferrari stays ahead of any other vehicle that may hit the market. Ferrari will soon be known as the low-cost supplier simply by under-pricing the competition. Ferrari volume can increase, which can drive costs down even further by an economic boost, and supply and demand. It is important to still maintain a healthy profit margin, of course, so it is key to lower not only prices, but costs too. Motors will achieve product or service quality differentiation. There are hundreds of companies that have achieved such differentiation for themselves. What is the difference between 7-up and Sprite, or between Ritz and Townhouse crackers? Why do people keep returning to the same Valvoline to have their car serviced? Why do many people follow their favorite artist or athlete if they move to another team, or different record label? The answers lie in how different people perceive different things. Ferrari will also strive to achieve supply or distribution leverage. Take for example Microsoft, when the company wrote the DOS operating system, it almost instantly became somewhat of a monopoly because no other......

...Available online at www.sciencedirect.com Physics Procedia 20 (2011) 404–419 Space, Propulsion & Energy Sciences International Forum - 2011 Conventional physics can explain cold fusion excess heat S. R. Chubb* Infinite Energy Magazine, 9822 Pebble Weigh Ct, Burke, VA 22015-3378 Abstract In 1989, when Fleischmann, Pons and Hawkins (FP), claimed they had created room temperature, nuclear fusion in a solid, a firestorm of controversy erupted. Beginning in 1991, the Office of Naval Research began a decade-long study of the FP excess heat effect. This effort documented the fact that the excess heat that FP observed is the result of a form of nuclear fusion that can occur in solids at reduced temperature, dynamically, through a deuteron (d)+d 4He reaction, without high-energy particles or rays. A key reason this fact has not been accepted is the lack of a cogent argument, based on fundamental physical ideas, justifying it. In the paper, this question is re-examined, based on a generalization of conventional energy band theory that applies to finite, periodic solids, in which d’s are allowed to occupy wave-like, ion band states, similar to the kinds of states that electrons occupy in ordinary metals. Prior to being experimentally observed, the Ion Band State Theory (IBST) of cold fusion predicted a potential d+d 4He reaction, without high energy particles, would explain the excess heat, the 4He would be found in an unexpected place (outside heat-producing electrodes),......
