Act as a critic for one of the various subjects under the umbrella of the subject Humanities. Through a series of critiques, you will be demonstrating your background knowledge on these subjects and the themes studied in the Humanities. In general, a critic evaluates a work or piece based on a common language of a subject. For example, certain terminology is used in the film industry for aesthetic, whereas other terminology is used in architecture. Aside from a common language of art, each subject usually includes a history of influence-how a work was influenced by other works and how a work influence aspects of today’s art and culture. Critics use this common body of history and aesthetic to offer critiques, or judgements on the validity of the importance of aesthetic (it’s representation of beauty).
You will act as a critic for some of the main subjects covered in the humanities. You will conduct a series of short, evaluative critiques of film, philosophy, literature, music, and myth. You will respond to five different prompts, and each response should include an analysis of the topics using terminology unique to that subject area and should include an evaluation as to why the topic stands the test of time. The five prompts are as follows
- Choose a film and offer an analysis of why it is an important film, and discuss it in terms of film as art. Your response should be more than a summary of the film.
- Imagine you had known Plato and Aristotle and you had a conversation about how we fall in love. Provide an overview of how Plato would explain falling in love, and then provide an overview of how Aristotle might explain falling in love.
- Compare and contrast the two poems below:
I find no peace, and all my war is done;
I fear and hope, I burn and freeze likewise
I fly above the wind, yet cannot rise;
And nought I have, yet all the world I seize on;
That looseth, nor locketh, holdeth me in prison, And holds me not, yet can I ’scape no wise;
Nor lets me live, nor die, at my devise,
And yet of death it giveth none occasion.
Without eyes I see, and without tongue I plain;
I wish to perish, yet I ask for health;
I love another, and yet I hate myself;
I feed in sorrow, and laugh in all my pain;
Lo, thus displeaseth me both death and life,
And my delight is causer of my grief.
Petrarch After great pain a formal feeling comes—
The nerves sit ceremonious like tombs;
The stiff Heart questions—was it He that bore?
And yesterday—or centuries before?
The feet mechanical go round
A wooden way
Of ground or air or ought
A quartz contentment like a stone.
This is the hour of lead
Remembered if outlived
As freezing persons recollect
First chill, then stupor, then
The letting go
- Compare and contrast these two pieces of music:
Beethoven’s Violin Romance No. 2
Scott Joplin’s Maple Leaf Rag
Explain in classical terms why a modern character is a hero. Choose from either Luke Skywalker, Indiana Jones, Bilbo Baggins, Harry Potter, Katniss Everdeen, or Ender Wiggins.
This study focuses on the overall performance of two companies pre merger and post merger. The analysis of the performance of the company before and after the merger enables us to draw a conclusion whether the merger has been favourable to the company or not. Mergers and Acquisitions are a topic of global significance nowadays. Mergers and Acquisitions have become a common corporate strategy in the recent past enabling the organizations to achieve synergy benefit and sustainable development. They are spoken about so much all over the globe in recent times. These Mergers and Acquisitions are not of a recent origin but have been in practice since 18th century. This project gives an insight on Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) through a comparative study on the pre merger and post merger analysis of Arcelor and Mittal Steel from a finance perspective. Mittal Steel merged its operations with Arcelor in 2006 and it was regarded as the biggest merger in the world steel industry. For the purpose of our study we have considered Mittal Steel’s acquisition of Arcelor and have made the pre merger and post merger analysis of the same to arrive at conclusions. The objective of this study is to arrive at a conclusion whether the merger has been successful or not in terms of both profit as well as wealth maximization. This study will take into consideration the merger of Arcelor and Mittal Steel and analyse their performances before and after the merger and decide whether they have been able to achieve success after the merger and also whether the companies have been able to achieve synergy benefit which is one of the primary reasons for a merger to take place. This study also analyses the success of the merger in terms of market share and the capacity utilization. This project has made use of secondary data and the facts and figures are reliable to the best of our knowledge. The various financial techniques used in this study are trend analysis, ratio analysis, cash flow statement and fund flow statement. The conclusions of this study cannot be used to generalize regarding the fate of Mergers and Acquisitions. This study strongly recommends further research on this topic in the >GET ANSWER
