...I have selected an externship with â€śExtern Organization Nameâ€ť because the sponsor is the Head of Litigation at a large law firm. As I stated above, law is an area that I am interested in but, unfortunately, have not had much first-hand exposure to. My parents studied biology and engineering in college and we have no lawyers in the family. By shadowing this sponsor, I would, first of all, be able to see up-close what law is all about, specifically litigation, and also see the day-to-day functioning of a prominent NYC law firm. Since this is a very large law firm, I imagine I would also have the opportunity to interact with lawyers with other specializations as well. In addition, I am curious to know why the sponsor thinks the practice of law is a splendid way to spend oneâ€™s working life.
I see an externship as a quick and clever way to experience life as a lawyer without actually going to law school. Law is a long and difficult path and while I am interested in it, I do not want to take the path unless I have seen for myself what the result is like. By shadowing a real lawyer and speaking to him about his experiences, I would get an insiderâ€™s edge to help me make my decision. I feel that this is much more valuable than anything I could learn from books. This experience would help me decide whether this area of law, or even law itself, is what I truly want to do for a living.
In addition to personally observing the practice of law, I would also be able to ask my...
...Born with Kavasam and Kundalam (Armour and ear-rings), and bequeathed as a gift from the Sun God to an unwed Kunti (M. V. Rajamma), Karnan is abandoned so as to prevent embarrassment for her. He is set afloat in the Ganga, rescued and adopted by a charioteer, who is employed withDhritarashtra, the blind king. Years later, the now-grown up Karnan (Sivaji Ganesan) realizes that the charioteer is his foster father only, thus heartbroken. He however masters archery and challenges Arjun (R. Muthuraman) at a contest. When Karnan is insulted on account of his birth,Duryodhan (S. A. Ashokan) defends him and accepts him as his partner. Karnan is eventually crowned the king of Anga.
At one time, Lord Indra, the rain god and king of heavens, disguised as an old Brahmin, goes to Karnan and asks for his Kavasam and Kundalam indaanam (donation). Indra was apprehensive that Karnan, by virtue of his phenomenal skills as a warrior, may be able to overwhelm Arjun. He therefore asked for this gift so as to reduce his strength. Karnan had been cautioned by the Sun God that Lord Indra was going to make some such move. But Karna is so large hearted that he cannot refuse anyone. Knowing fully well, that Indra was playing a trick on him disguised as a Brahmin, he yet parts with his Kavasam and Kundalam, which were parts of his body since birth and which made him invincible. Lord Indra is taken aback at Karnan's capacity to give away anything asked for. He tells that what Karnan has done today,...
...ď»żBertolt Brecht Xhesi Geshteja
Brecht was both playwright and producer/director of his own and other peoples plays. He also wrote on dramatic theory. The theory describes theatre as Brecht wished it to become. This theory is only partly realised in his own work. Brecht would say that this is the result of the theatre's and society's not being ready yet for the final, perfected version of epic theatre. Modern theatre critics might say that Brecht's practical sense of what works in the theatre has happily overruled the more extreme applications of his theory.
His plays are humorous and present social and political questions. The fourth wallÂ is rejected, stories are improbable, settings exotic, songs serve as commentary on action.
Brecht's view is that actor shouldÂ not impersonate, but narrateÂ actions of another person, as if quoting facial gesture and movement.
â€śThe Brechtian style of acting is acting in quotation marks.â€ť
Brecht uses the example of an accident-eyewitness. To show bystanders what happened, he may imitate, say, the victim's gait but will only quote what is relevant and necessary to his explanation.
The Gestus: This is Brecht's term for basic human attitudes - department, intonation, facial expression. The Stanislavskian actor works at identifying with the character he or she portrays. The Brechtian actor works at expressing social attitudes in clear and stylized ways.
Brecht believed the stage should beÂ brightly litÂ at all times, special effects...

...terrorizes people, like poor Onew.
His vocal control is commendable, though control of his voice is insignificant due to the fact that he sounds like a cat getting raped. We donâ€™t know how many of you people have heard this happen, maybe outside of your house, or to your own cat, but it is offensive. His dancing is average, nothing special. But his eternally angry face makes any attempt at dancing scary.
Â Technically, his ability to control his voice and range would make him about a 7. But the sound of his voice drastically drops the score.
Heâ€™s mean. Heâ€™s very mean. You shouldnâ€™t treat people the way he treats people. Especially Onew. Onew is his elder, and the leader. Jonghyun should treat him with respect and dignity. But because of his Napoleon complex, he finds the need to belittle and overall, just piss off, Onew.

...the fetus can be removed. All of these procedures have their side effects and dangers, of course. A few common side effects are nausea, bleeding and cramping, and less common but more serious additional risks may include damage to uterine lining, cervix, and uterus, and blood clots (americanpregnancy.org).
Over the course of the past several decades, there have been a few influential court cases that have played a key role in the furtherance of developing the case for abortion, beginning in 1964 with Griswold vs. Connecticut, which was a simple stepping stone to later developing cases. This case stated that it was â€śunconstitutional to outlaw contraceptives of any sortâ€ť (abortionfacts.com). This may not seem like a big deal, but it was in fact a cultural and societal milestone. The case ruled that contraceptives are allowed, and some cultures view the use of birth control as unethical, because it prevents the creation of life. Griswold vs. Connecticut eventually led to Roe vs. Wade in 1972, which is known as an extremely influential and relevant case still today, especially after the update in the Doe vs. Bolton case. Roe vs. Wade â€śprovided that abortions should be legal if there was a convincing reason to have oneâ€ť (abortionfacts.com). This made sense, in that women needed to have a good reason to go through with the procedure. A more recent case concerning the topic of abortion is Planned Parenthood vs. Casey, 1992, which simply delves deeper into the...

Is Financial Aid Distributed Fairly to Every Social Class?
In a society where a college education is necessary to attain a job, people will pay any price to get a degree. Since 1965 government assistance programs such as FAFSA have made attending college much more simple for the working class. However, such programs focus much of their efforts on assisting lower income students and fail to contribute to students from middle class families. Middle class students or their parents are caught in a situation in which they must pay for all of their college funds, or they are put into debt from the outrageous amount of loans. Financial aid is based off of the parentâ€™s income until the age of 25, but there are situations in which not parents are able or willing to pay for their childâ€™s education due to the high cost of tuition. Complications of financial aid arise due to the lack of focus in financial assistance for students who come from middle class families. Due to the complications of the financial aid system students from the middle class are forced to choose cheaper schools, go into debt, or enter the work force, yet prices of getting an education are only getting higher. For middle class families options to pay for school are very limited, without financial aid or the funds to pay, a life of debt and worry surely waits.
Due to the high price of college, over the years several programs have been established in order to...
