Now that the semester has come to a close and that we have concluded the Brothers Karamazov, my opinion has not changed and I still find Alyosha Karamazov extremely riveting and engaging. I believe that Alyosha is the embodiment of the Church teaching that everyone’s first vocation is to love, serve, and know God. No matter where Alyosha finds himself, living at the monastery or in the world, he remains faithful to his faith traditions and to God. Mitya explains it best during the chapters on his confession when he calls Alyosha an “angel on earth” (105.) Mitya is recognizing that Alyosha has a special mission that he is assigned to while sojourning on this earth and that is to bring the message of God to all people. Alyosha may fall at

It takes years to build things up, but only seconds to tear it down. At the world’s fair, a place for exhibiting America’s innovation in technology and education, called the Pan American Exposition, in Buffalo, New York, on September 6, 1901 this is exactly what happened. Leon Czolgosz decided to take his hatred for politics and love for anarchy into his own hands and shot President William McKinley two times at close range, killing him a week later. America changed in that very instant; the country went from being optimistic of the new 20th century to reliving the horror and pain of the dreadful 19th all because of one man’s radical actions. Leon Czolgosz was a regular middle class worker, and he, like many others, was angered by the widening
Agent Jerry Argovitz was in negotiations with the Detroit Lions over player Billy Sims. At the time, there was a competing franchise for the United States Football League, The Houston Gamblers, who Argovitz was in a bid for the franchise. The bid was approved and Argovitz became a part owner for the Houston Gamblers. Argovitz lessened the offer to the Lions, in order for the Lions to consider taking him or not. Argovitz was actually just making it seem like the Lions were not interested in Sims to be a part of their team, but Argovitz was ultimately attempting to have Sims join his team, the Gamblers. Sims’ pride and ego was hurt by the Lions not wanting him because of Argovitz’s mischievous ways. Argovitz was hiding a lot of information from Sims and being sneaky about the negotiation process. Eventually, Sims filed to invalidate the contract with Argovitz’s team because Sims believed that Argovitz breached his fiduciary obligations. The Lions even called Argovitz, but he refused to answer their calls, also he never called the Detroit Lions back to seek a counter-offer after he offered a Gamblers contract with Sims and once Sims found out about that, he wanted to see if there was going to be a better
Vladek went through the various Nazi genocide stages as brought out by Raul Hilberg. According to Hilberg, the four distinct phases of the Holocaust were identification, economic discrimination, and separation, concentration, and extermination. Although Vladek was not eventually exterminated, his close relatives and friends did not survive the lethal last stage through the various sugar-coated tactics employed by the Germans. The essay will scrutinize these Holocaust stages and relate them to the life events of the Vladek, the main character in Maus 1 and 2 written by Art Spiegelman. The works of other scholars in predicting the impacts of the Holocaust will also be looked at.

The psychology theorists of the past have shaped the classrooms of the present. There are many theorists that have affected the teaching styles of today and a theorist that has had a major impact is Lev Vygotsky. Vygotsky’s work interests me much because his concepts and ideas encompass many of the ways in which teachers teach in today’s classrooms. The ideas he presented have contoured the strategies of teachers. It is interesting to look into the reasons why teachers have adopted some of the strategies they use and many of those reasons are formed from the original ideas of Vygotsky.

ANATOMY OF A FAILED ALLIANCE—GENERAL MOTORS AND DAEWOO In June 1984, General Motors and the Daewoo Group of Korea signed an agreement that called for each to invest $100 million in a South Korean-based 50/50 joint venture, Daewoo Motor Company, that would manufacture a subcompact car, the Pontiac LeMans, based on GM's popular German-designed Opel-Kadett (Opel is a wholly owned German subsidiary of GM). Much of the day-to-day management of the alliance was to be placed in the hands of Daewoo executives, with managerial and technical advice being provided by a limited number of GM executives. At the time, many hailed the alliance as a smart move for both companies. GM doubted that a small car could be built profitably in the United
