Security and discipline Essay Discipline normalizes; it fixes the process of training and permanent control. An optimal model will be the one that gives a certain result. Disciplinary normalization consists in trying to get people and their actions to conform this model and norm. Example of smallpox: they developed a mechanism of security with a double integration: rationalization of chance and probabilities. On typical practices of security we see a number of elements emerging that are absolutely important for later extension of apparatuses of security: 1) practice of inoculation: supervision of those inoculated: observing the risks of dying from inoculation or from smallpox. Here appears in the text the term on Ã¢â¬Å"prevailing diseaseÃ¢â¬ which is a kind of disease that unites a country or climate. Integrating individual phenomena within a collective field 2) the disease is accessible to a group, it is then accessible to individuals 3) risk is not the same for all individuals, of all ages, or conditions CRISIS: phenomena of sudden worsening and increase of the disease. The phenomenom of sudden, circular bolting that can only be checked either by a higher natural mechanism or by and artificial mechanism. The apparatus that appears with variolisation vaccination consists not in the division of those who are sick and those who are not. It identifies the coefficient of probable morbidity, the normal expectation of population of being affected by the disease. Foucault thinks we have a system exatly the opposite to the one we have seen with the disciplines. In the disciplenes one started from a norm. Here we have a plotting of the normal and the abnormal, of different curves od normality, and the operation of normality consists in stablishing an interplay between different distributions of normality. Points out the problem of contagion. AS A CONCLUSION: Foucault thinks that the integration of the town within central mechanisms of power, or better, the inversion that made the town the primary problem, even before the problem of the territory, is a phenomenom, a reversal, typical of what took place between the seventeenth and the beginning of the eighteenth century. It was a problem to which it really was necessary to respond with new mechanisms of power whose form in no doubt found is what he calls mecanisms of security. Another problem for him is: circulation, exchange and contact. He links this to the idea of sovereignty. SOOO.. the mechanism of security does nt function on the axis of the sovereign subjects relationship, ensuring the total and as it were passive obedicence of individuals to their sovereign. In the following pages the author says that population can only be the basis of the stateÃ¢â¬â¢s wealth and power if it its framed by a regulatory apparatus. Here appears the term of desire: every individual has one. The sovereign is the person who can say no ti an individuals desire, the problem is how to legitimize this Ã¢â¬Å"noÃ¢â¬ opposed to individuals desire and found it on the will of these same individuals.

The mind and mental processes can affect and shape human behavior. Some of the subtlest actions are outcomes of a personÃ¢â¬â¢s emotion, treatment, and provide underlying messages unknowingly exhibited and communicated. This occurs internally and is exposed through accidental or unintentional conduct. Hedda Gabler is an affluent European woman living a life of nobility and service. Pampered and easily neglected by her companions, she is unfulfilled by the amount of praise she receives in her household. Her strange and awkward behavior reveals the lack of foundation in her marriage. In Hedda Gabler, Henrik Ibsen uses stage directions to portray Hedda as a furtively vexatious, manipulative, and discontented woman trapped in marriage and in doing so, he presents the restrictive lifestyle of wealthy Victorian women.

Callie Dahlhauser Lora Devereaux Composition II April 3, 2013 A Picaresque Novel The picaresque novel is an early type of novel originating from the Spanish word picaro. Picaro means a rogue or an adventurer. This type of novel describes the journeys that the main character or Ã¢â¬Å"picaroÃ¢â¬ take part in. The main character is usually of low social class and manipulates their way through life instead of working for what they want.The main point of the picaresque novel is to present the main character and reveal his/her adventures (Murfin). There are seven key qualities that determine if a novel is picaresque or not. First, the novel will tell of the rogueÃ¢â¬â¢s life usually in first person. Second, the rogue comes from low social class and is very basic. Third, the novel is made up of Ã¢â¬Å"episodesÃ¢â¬ that are put together to create the whole. Forth, the main character will not change personality throughout this story. Fifth, the novel is going to portray realism. Sixt h, the picaro does not engage in criminal activities.Seventh, there is a variety of social classes thrown in throughout the novel (Harmon). Picaresque novels are told in first-person point of view and discuss thoroughly the social class of the characters. The picaresque novel is very much discontinuous and structureless. The point of this type of novel is to address the life story of the mischievous main character. This character relies on his intellects to get him far in life rather than hard labor. This adventurous character participates in escapades where he barely succeeds to escape ( Harmon).In a picaresque novel, the central character does not develop into someone else. They start of being a picaro in the beginning and end the same way. They describe the life of the rogue or even just part of their lives. Their qualities stay the same as does the main characters social status. As mentioned before, these types of novels lack structure and usually involve unrelated parts that co me together as a whole (Murfin). Many classify picaresque novels to be romantic because of the adventurous storyline.The picaresque novel however is actually marked as being realistic. Because of the fact that the settings in these stories are very life-like, it gives the novel a realistic texture. The novel is presented with simplicity of language also. It can also be considered realistic because of the in depth detail that is portrayed throughout the novels (Bloom). The rogue in these novels usually does not involve themselves in criminal mischief. They lack virtue which means they rely on tricks and pranks to get them what they want.Many times if the picaro is employed they do tedious work and do not fully apply themselves. In these novels, there is no plot. The story is made up of loosely connected adventures and stories (Harmon). One example of a picaresque novel is Mark TwainÃ¢â¬â¢s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck Finn is the picaro in the story and the novel tells of h is adventures. He was born of the low social status and wandered into danger during his adventures. Huck fits the definition of a rogue because of the fact that he is a loner.He feels more comfortable on his own and away from societyÃ¢â¬â¢s cruel judgments (Bloom). Another great example of a picaresque novel is The Unfortunate Traveller, or, The Life of Jack Wilton. This is considered the first English example of a Picaresque novel. The narrator, Jack Wilton, tells of his adventures throughout the wars against the French. He describes the dangers he encounters and the tragedy that he witnesses. Another way that makes this novel picaresque is because of the fact that Jack Wilton travels and comes into contact with many different societies (Bloom).Another example of a picaresque novel is One Flew over the CuckooÃ¢â¬â¢s Nest by Ken Kesey. It is considered picaresque because of the corrupt society and the humor seen throughout the novel by the picaro. Randle McMurphy is the novels m ain character and picaro. During the novel, he is faced with many different challenges. One Flew over the CuckooÃ¢â¬â¢s Nest tells of his adventures of being in the mental institute and describes his carefree personality ( Bloom). Although picaresque novels came about in the 16th century, the picaresque genre is still used frequently today.Picaresque novels have greatly influenced literature (Bloom). Works Cited Bloom, Harold.

Stores across America have established themselves as Christian businesses and refuse to cater to gay marriages. They do this based on their belief that gay marriage is wrong, and against their faith, and because of this they canÃ¢â¬â¢t provide their services or they would be supporting it. In Indiana, a small town pizzeria was asked what their position was on the Religious Restoration Freedom act, and stated that they were a Christian establishment and could not cater to gay marriages. However they would serve gay people and couples in their store. The gay community and supporters immediately bashed at the pizzeria, saying they discriminated the gays, causing them to close down, possibly having to leave town. Religious freedom has been a bigÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Much commotion has risen from both sides of these laws, and it is important to see as to what the laws protect/define. The Religious Freedom Restoration act laws that have been passed by some of the states gives th e rights for people to deny service based on religious belief. The RFRAÃ¢â¬â¢s ensure that the interests in religious freedom are protected. Many states have adapted their own form of the RFRAÃ¢â¬â¢s. On the other side, some states provide LGBT protection that illegalizes discrimination in public places. These rights are aimed towards the protection of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, etc. to protect them from public discrimination. However one must view how or if discrimination is occurring. There is a difference between not wanting to serve someone because they are gay, and not being able to cater (support) to a same-sex wedding due to religious beliefs. Yes there is discrimination in society today that undermines and demeans the gay community. However the religious community does not look to discriminate people that are homosexual. Religious doctrine denies that a sacred marriage can be between two of the same sex, and because of this, a religious person, group, business, e tc. cannot support a gay marriage with their services. The question now is whether Religious freedom can deny a person of their freedoms. This is something that can really go both ways. Christians are merely expressing their religious

The Problem of Evil in Philosophy What is the classic problem of evil in the Western philosophical/theological tradition (the trilemma)? The problem of evil is the question of how to reconcile the existence of evil with that of a deity who is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent. The trilemma was stated by the Greek philosopher Epicurus during antiquity and was restated during the modern period by David Hume. Epicurus poses a trilemma in order to refute the notion of an omnipotent and omnibenevolent God. He first argues that if God is unable to prevent evil, he is not omnipotent. If, alternatively, God is not willing to prevent evil, he is not good. How then, Epicurus asks, can evil exists if God is both willing and able to prevent evil? Epicurus trilemma exposes a logical contradiction in the Judeo-Christian conception of God and his creation of the world. He attempts to force his opponents to either admit that God is not omnipotent or not omnibenevolent. In order to escapes this trilemma, one would either have to deny the existence of evil in the world or come up with an explanation for how evil can exist when God is both willing and able to prevent such evil. What does Immanuel Kant mean by radical evil? Radical evil refers to a source of misbehavior that is caused by unfaithfulness, hypocrisy, and delusion in a person who aims to be moral or good. Kant believes that this unfaithfulness stems from a perversity of heart rather than a desire to beShow MoreRelatedThe Existence Of God : Evil1293 Words Ã |Ã 6 Pagesthat we are surrounded everywhere by evil.

Ideas and information consists of the segmentation criteria, target market, organization buyers and consumers, factors that influence purchasing decisions, and the current competition. The company Gentle Life is in the market of a pain free product that will make life easier for those people whom are in need of breast examinations. The company will present product to Konica Minolta Imaging, which is one of the leading imaging digital companies in America. The equipment for mammograms designs have remained the same. The segmentation idea of the product we created derives from the other version of mammogram equipment. The equipment currently used in hospitals, clinics, and medical facilities consists of a flat surface that the breast is pulled into and then pressed down by another flat surface to keep the breast in place, followed by a scanner that scans just a portion of the breast at a time.

With our product improvement it will be in the same market for the breast, however with a different tactic to decreasing the pain and the coldness of plastic and also the long procedure of time used. Instead of a flat surface that pulls the chest, the breast mammogram cup will fit onto any breast or chest for males or females. The word cup is important because the purpose is gently to cup the area without pulling, yanking or tugging. The market we are trying to impact is those individuals who are need of mammogram examinations but feel embarrassed, shy or even skeptical of the procedure. For those who have had the examination before know how the process works, but for those who have never had one which is required after age 40 to do so or if medical history of breast cancer exists should be encouraged to have one done.
