The story of William Shakespeare's Othello is set in 16th-century Venice and Cyprus. Othello the Moor, a noble black warrior in the Venetian army, has secretly married a beautiful white woman called Desdemona, the daughter of a prominent senator, Brabantio. When he finds out, he is outraged, and promptly disowns her.

Othello’s ensign, Iago, harbours a secret jealousy and resentment towards the Moor, partly because another soldier, lieutenant Cassio, has been promoted ahead of him, and also because he suspects that Othello has had an affair with his wife. Intent on revenge, Iago hatches a devious plan to plant suspicions in Othello’s mind that Desdemona has been unfaithful to him with Cassio. He orchestrates a street fight, for which Cassio is wrongly blamed, and is then dismissed from his post by Othello. Desdemona takes up Cassio’s case with her husband, which only further inflames his suspicions that the pair are lovers.

In the meantime, Iago manages to procure a treasured handkerchief from Desdemona that was given to her by Othello. He plants it on Cassio so that Othello sees it, then concludes that it is proof of their affair. Maddened by jealousy, he orders Iago to murder Cassio, and then he strangles Desdemona. Immediately afterwards her innocence is revealed, and Iago’s treachery exposed. In a fit of grief and remorse Othello kills himself. Iago is taken into custody by the Venetian authorities.

Written against the backdrop of the bubonic plague and the death of Queen Elizabeth I, Othello is thought to have been completed sometime in early 1604. Shakespeare appropriated the basic plot and story from Geraldi Cinthio’s popular book, Hundred Stories, the first sentence of which reads, “There was a Moor in Venice”. There were also other books that he probably used to shape the plots details,…...

Plot, Theme, and Style in Paterson’s Bridge to Terabithia

...created out of the minds of the two unforgettable child protagonists, Jess and Leslie. Through Paterson’s use of literary elements such as: plot, theme, and style, the reader comes to understand and marvel at the benevolence and devotion of youthful friendship, and the power and magic of the imagination. Bridge to Terabithia is a commendable, heartwarming, eloquently written book that well deserves the designation of “one of the most timeless and classical books ever written.” Paterson’s plot is a progressive sequence of events, mixed with several different conflicts and rise and fall action. Bridge to Terabithia’s plot begins its rise with a person vs. society conflict as Jess and Leslie quickly become best friends while trying to deal with a world that oftentimes does not understand them. Shortly after, the person vs. man is encountered as Jess and Leslie's friendship is strengthened by their encounters with a schoolyard bully.

...Steven M. Pierce Strayer University 12/09/2012 Criminal Justice Assignment 6 Johnathan James, 16, is the first juvenile to be sent to prison for computer hacking. The kind of hacking Johnathan committed is also known as “crackers” or “black hats” who work to exploit major computer systems. Johnathan professes in an anonymous interview with PBS that he was just looking around or playing around He states “what was fun for me was a challenge to see what I could pull off”. His major intrusions were high profile organizations. He installed what’s called a back door into a Defense Threat Reduction Agency server. The DTRA is an agency of the Department of Defense charged with reducing the threats to the United States. These threats include, nuclear, biological, chemical, conventional and weapons. I believe Johnathan was the underlying motive. He knew exactly what he was doing. He contented, “The code itself was crappy...certainly not worth $1.7 million like they claimed”. From reviewing the six categories in the textbook I’m torn between scamps and explorers. I would chose scamps because it did seem like Johnathan had a sense of fun in what he was doing. Then again I believe he would be categorized as an explorer because of the delight in his discoveries. The more secure it became the more excitement he had. With the extent of his crime Johnathan was very fortunate he was not an adult, he would have faced 10 years in prison. Instead he was banned from recreational......

Assessment of the Bhamra Family

...the new. Jess appears to be like a lot of other daughters of Indian immigrants, growing up in England.

On the inside, though, she is battling the constant conflict with being true to herself and being what her family and culture dictates she should be. She comes from a loving traditional family often tell her who she should be. Anything different from tradition was risky, strange, and a little scary. At first her family appears overbearing and dysfunctional, forcing everyone to fulfill certain roles and not deviate from what is considered acceptable. Ultimately, when Jess feels forced to choose between family and her love of sport, she chooses family, even when her non-Indian soccer friends tell her otherwise. In return, Jess’ family surprises her, proving that love and respect are more important to tradition.

Essay on Inner Feelings of a Main Character.

...the main character Jess Bhamra through special effects, body language and dialogue in three scenes. In the opening scene where a game is in progress between Manchester United vs Anderlecht, the director used special effects to show us what Jess felt about soccer and what her dreams are. He showed and helped us understand what Jess thought about soccer by using a special effect where Jess is added to the soccer game virtually in place of another player using technology, where she is playing the match and then Beckham passes her the ball and she scores by heading the ball into the goal. The director also shows us how Jess`s mother, Mrs Bhamra feels about Jess playing soccer by using special effects where her mother is in the news panel, again using technology where she is talking about how girls should not be running around in front of men wearing small shorts and uses gestures where she is showing her hand in reprimand and telling Jess to home straight away. The director uses body language and dialogue in the scene where Jess`s mother is praying to Guru Nanak and she is saying one thing many times “let Jess`s results be good” before letting Jess open her results. This shows that her mother really cares about Jess and wants her to pass her exams. In another scene where the director uses dialogue is when Jess`s sister is getting married. Jess`s father, Mr Bhamra can’t see Jess upset so he lets Jess go to her final match without telling her mother to make Jess happy. In the......

Some people in society stray from the norms and become gender variant.

... Media bias is the bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of events and stories that are reported and how they are covered. The idea of media is to bring awareness to the people. There has been times where the media has been accurate and times where it hasn’t. There has also been times when the media was truthful. Most journalists aren’t able to cover the whole story so they pick bits and pieces of what they believe is more important, and then it goes to their editor who wants the story to be juicy, they want it to stand out under any circumstances. So then the journalist has to take two steps back and take things out that are truthful and add things for “show” or things that make the story seem more interesting to either help it sell better or increase the ratings. There are many different reasons for media bias. Advertising bias in when the journalists have to reword things to please whomever it is they want to sell the story to. Corporate bias is more or less when you work for a company and your boss feels the need to recreate an “ideal” report, something that’s more interesting and that’ll catch the readers eye or viewers ear. Mainstream bias is what I consider monkey see monkey do, every reporter is reporting the exact same thing over and over. And sensationalism is when they make one particular even more relevant than another, such as a car wreck vs a plane crash. Plane crashes aren’t heard of or seen everyday so it then becomes...

Bend It Like Beckham

...Year 10 English Analytical Essay “Jess faces several obstacles and challenges in Bend it like Beckham. How does the director use imagery to convey this aspect of the story?” Imagine being born into a family where cultures as well as overprotective parents stop you from following your dream. The film, Bend it like Beckham gives an insight into the life of Jesminder Bhamra, a typical Indian girl with a passion for football. Being raised in a family with a strong sense of culture, Jess was unable to achieve her main goal in life which was to pursue a professional career in football, as it went against the laws and traditions of her Indian heritage. Having overprotective parents who were raised learning the ways of a typical Indian lifestyle also made it difficult for Jess to follow her dream of playing football professionally. Director Gurinder Chadha uses film techniques such as props, camera shots, costumes, and lighting effectively to help convey the many obstacles and challenges Jess is faced with. The director uses camera shots as well as props effectively to portray the clash between the worlds of football and Jess’s Indian heritage. This is evident in the scene where Jess is practicing her skills using a cabbage, whilst her mother is cooking chapattis and getting irritated at her for not being able to cook a full traditional Indian dinner. Instead of paying any attention as to how to cook a traditional meal, she uses the cabbage as a soccer ball to......

Finally, you must reserve time for a brief class discussion in the form of a question/answer session. It is...

Jess Westerley Case Study

...Jess Westerly Case Study Based upon your reading and analysis of the Jess Westerly case, what change strategy would you have used if you were Jess Westerly? For Example, would you have used a top-down rapid strategy, a high-involvement-staged strategy? Why? What would be your implementation plan? For example, what would you do first? How would you time phase it? What are the critical (pivotal) actions that must succeed? Based upon my reading and analysis of the Jess Westerly case study, I would have implemented a high-involvement, phased change strategy. Changing the software-as-a-service (SaaS) sales approach from targeting of small and medium business to large organizations is a strategic change for Kauflauf. In order for changes to be made, it is necessary to implement through phases. Key elements are leadership engagement and compensation design. In order to inform my approach with industry best practices, I interviewed a Saas sales leader. To illustrate and frame my approach, I will use Kurt Lewin’s three-phase model for change. In Phase one, we must unfreeze the system. During the first three months, the CEO of Kauflauf must champion the change to pursue SaaS contracts with large organizations (Sales Class 1-3 firms, $500,000+ annual revenue). Using Jess Westerly’s data affirming the opportunity for 30% growth, the CEO must communicate the organization’s change in client targeting; he must also indicate the implied crisis: only those SaaS......

Essay and managing individuals. Jess as a manager has shown traits as a positive manager even though she has limited experience but still has some working knowledge of her role. Jess tries to achieve the tasks albeit she has to do them herself because other employees wont. Jess hasn’t succeeded in managing team because she has tried designed to bring in monthly meetings to generate involvement from staff but staff just sits back and listen and clock watch. Jess is trying to bring the team together but she feels her team are not supportive of her decisions as they feel they have been let down, due to previous managerial decisions. Also managing the individuals isn’t correct for jess because certain employees don’t like her such as Russell who wanted her job and he refuses to work hard. To rectify this Jess has to have to talk to the employees and say what she wants and tell them to start working harder. Also try to persuade them that she is the correct person for the job. Furthermore jess should assert her authority and talk to each member individually and say what she wants the best out of them. There is some Henri Fayol principle theory as well because in Fayol theory there is a 5 plan element for management which is planning, organising, coordination, command and control. Jess has good planning structure because she plans for the long term and short term and has clear ideas and objectives for the company when she got appointed. Jess is ok at co-ordination because......
