Julia Alvarez’s In the Time of Butterflies is a work of historical fiction set in the Dominican Republic under the rule of powerful dictator known as Trujillo. Four sisters work together to resist a force greater than themselves to stand up for their beliefs and protect their family. Patria, Dede, Mate, and Minerva, “the butterflies”, experience the loss of their father and family members to the regime. They work together to retrieve them back or use their losses to drive them to overthrow their compelling government. Each of the sisters represent a larger theme of the novel such as religious importance, identity, or coming of age. Minerva Mirabal is driven by the need to escape the “cage” she is locked in by Trujillo. Therefore, the theme
He may also feel that the contact was breached and he is owed restitution. Marshall in this disagreement should first attempt to resolve this dispute without pursuing any legal action. He could use his faith and biblical teachings, to show errors of ways. He could argue the contract unenforceable due to fraud and inept execution, if he must rely on legal relief. The business relationship is best suited to be served also. The common law duty is to always act in good faith. Good faith performance is an implied agreement in nearly every contract in American common law jurisdictions (Burton, 1980). In the contract in question the promise was made, upholding an expectation of receiving the terms agreed upon in the contract. The issue is to act in good faith or to enforce the law. Marshall can secure not only supply, price, but also control of the benefits earned by his supplier. From a legal aspect, Marshall has acted in bad faith. A minor capacity to sign a contract is the bad faith act on Marshall’s part.
In 1993 Volkswagen had record low sales but by the end of 1997 the VW brand had sold 137,885 cars. That was an increase of 178% from it’s 1993 slump. It is safe to say that the the ’94 relaunch of VW on the American Market was a success. The “Drivers Wanted” campaign, developed by Arnold Communications, I believe was successful as a result of excellent market research and positioning.
On October 29th, 2015, I made the trip to small claims court at the Superior Court North County Division in Vista, California. The case I observed was a contract dispute between Michael Mendell and Ediga Narashima. The plaintiff (Mendell) was sueing the defendant (Narashima) for $4,000 over a breach of contract. Narashima had given Mendell the opportunity to build theatre system and a bookshelf for his home. They both came to an agreement that the total cost of this procedure would be $4,100. Mr. Mendell is a professor at APT College where he teaches telecommunications. Mendell claims that the full $4,100 was never paid to him. During the whole process of the build there was many setbacks and problems that arose. Mendell claimed that while he was working on this home theatre project, he missed out on work and money he could have obtained from his other job as a professor. That is the reason why he is sueing Narashima as well as the fact that Mendell claims Narashima did not pay him his final installment of $300 for the job. Ediga Narashima claims that the final installment was paid through a friend or third party named Mario Diaz. Mario was a friend of both the plaintiff and defendant. He had referred Mendell to Narashima for the job. Mendell counterclaims that he had never received the final installment from Mario. The big question is to whether Mario had payed the final installment to Mendell as they agreed in

“The creation of a structure of good and evil…[is] a function of intelligence-unquestionably the ultimate evil may [be] the destruction of conscious intelligence.”(8) In the psychoanalytical story ‘The Large Ant’, by Howard Fast, a multitude of facets portray how fear morphed history throughout time. ‘The Large Ant’ locates itself some years after the Second World war, atom bombs having been dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. With a communist regime on the rise, ‘The Large Ant’ parallels Cold War hostilities and breaks apart the intentions of a humanity through the use of theories, including classical conditioning, defence mechanisms, and group influences.
Tiller Construction Corporation entered into two contracts with Nadler, the CEO of Glenmar, where Tiller would do “the work” for Nadler at Westridge for $637,000 and the other for Tiller to do “the work” for Nadler at Cranberry for $688,800. Nadler agreed to be personally liable to Tiller for the payment of both contracts. When the job was done, Nadler refused to pay the remaining balance of $229,799.46 for the Cranberry project and a remaining balance of $264,273.85 for the Westridge project. So Tiller sued Nadler for the amount owed, plus interest, costs, and attorney’s fees.
Operation Praying Mantis, which occurred on April 16, 1987 was critical point in the history of the United States Navy because it was very instrumental in shaping American history due to it being the largest U.S. Naval action since World War 2. It changed how the United States fought and assessed naval warfare due to multiple grey areas concerning inbound vehicles and deciding when to attack. The operation was also significant to American history because it displayed military might like no other which served as a deterrent to other country’s Navies. Operation Praying Mantis was a significant battle for the United States and I support Symonds’s argument that American history was
This is an intentional tort action against a grape producer involving a breach contract between my health food products business and a grape producer and distributor. In the words of the Honorable Allen M. Linden “Tort laws have a noble mission and opportunity to help people in trouble. The injured and the bereaved desperately require tort lawyers to help them retake whatever is left of their lives that can be retaken with money” (Linden, 2005). I seek restitution for compensatory damages for loss of revenue, pain and suffering due to the broken contract. As well as, to make my company whole again and place it back in the financial position it was before the breach occurred. This intentional tort has caused harm to the economic interests of my company (Kubasek, Brennan, & Browne, 2015). The family produce company started selling my health foods products business Muscadine grapes and sales grew at a rapid rate. I have become dependent on the distributor to deliver the product and the price and rate that he has in the past. However, upon being faced with an opportunity to do business with more profitable customer, he decides that he no longer can provide produce with my company, leaving me out to find another distributor, potentially more expensive.
I have been in business with this family owned produce store that specializes in the production of anti-oxidant Muscadine grapes. We have formed a contract given the results of how popular their product was: I place regular orders to be supplied with their grapes, and in return I make my payment within 30 days. They have filled out all of my requests in a faithful manner. However, on several occasions I was 15-30 days late with my payments. The company never charged me interest or late fees. Recently, I have formed a new contract with the son of the owners of the company. It was to stipulate a guaranteed price schedule to what I have been paying. At the time the son was only 17 years old, but it has been a month since
Zoetis was my first engagement as an Associate. The Zoetis project was related to SAP Real Time Assessment and taught me wide variety of things. It helped me broaden my IT Audit and SAP deployment skill set. I did wide variety of work ranging from Operational Qualification, Performance Qualification to various User Role Mapping and Defect Management Testing. Doing a wide variety of work in my first engagement was my biggest strength. It never felt as if I was doing my first engagement. Moreover, I followed my managers guidelines for most of the work but sometimes gave my suggestions and incorporated innovate ways of doing certain things. Overall, the engagement was viewed as a quality deliverable while meeting all guidelines, deadlines and
He displayed a “requirement contract” to my son, a child if you will, who was a part-time delivery person for the family business. The contract incorporated an ensured value plan which I was already paying.
In this paper, I will discuss a play by Athenian playwright Aristophanes, The Wasps. First, I shall give a brief overview of the The Wasps. Then, I will examine the courtroom scene of the play and argue that Philocleon is not an impartial juror. Next, I will discuss generational gap in Athens. Finally, I will conclude the paper with my outcome of the investigation of the conflict between Misocleon and Philocleon.
