Essay736 Words / ~ pages How to find happiness by In earlier times the position in the science of psychology was to get away from being unhappy and to get into a condition of being content. In the meantime the development of the focus areas in psychology changed. Scientists found out that it is a better way for every individuum to search inside what makes one happy than just the handling of mental problems. I agree to this. I found out three quotes that describe the word „happiness“ very well: The first one is a quote by Mahatma Ghandi. He says: „Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.“ The second is a quote by Wayne Dyer. He says: „Happiness is something that you are and it comes from the way you think.“ The third one is written by Robert Ingersoll. He says: „Happiness is not a reward- it is a consequence.“ These quotes show that „happiness“…[show more]

Interpretation847 Words / ~2 pages „Barack Obama Coins a Slogan“ - Election 2008 Speech Analysis During the election campaign of 2008, after having lost the primary in New Hampshire to Senator Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama delivered his probably most famous speech. The text at hand is an extract from this speech. Obama tries to convince his audience of his belief that changing the current circumstances is possible, by referring to key events in American history, the American Dream and by using stylistic devices. In addition he tries to unite the American people and to encourage them to work and stick together as one nation. Obama uses “we” instead of “I” frequently (s. ll. 1+4+9.), because the so-called “inclusive we” gives the tended effect of unity as it addresses everyone as a whole instead of excluding someone.

Homework971 Words / ~2 pages Business in Focus Questions Inflation is the percentage change in the value of the RPI (Retail Price index) on a year-on year basis. It effectively measures the change in the prices of a basket of goods and services in a year. Inflation also means there is a fall in the purchasing power of money. One main negative impact for UK companies is that because of the rise in inflation customers are less likely to spend and they are more likely to save their money. This because peoples wage rates may go down because with the increase. This means companies will get less revenue and therefore become less profitable. This again may make there be a lower wage rate because there is less money going into a company. On top of this the price of raw materials and stock goes up, this not too much of a problem in the UK considering 80% of UK companies are in the service…[show more]

Lecture636 Words / ~ pages Speech – African Americans “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King I started my speech with a quotation from Martin Luther King. And in my opinion, he is right. Discriminatio­n against minorities, particularly African Americans, is almost a part of everyday life in the United States. It’s happen every day in many places and in different contexts. Today, the conflict between black and white people has been a little bit better, but the target from the life together isn’t reached. The ethnic composition of the African-Ameri­cans has changed over the last years. In the census of 1950, the population of African Americans had stood at about ten percent.

Discussion643 Words / ~ pages Comment- ,,Children owe their parents everything In the book ‘‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother”, published in 2012, the author, Amy Chua, wrote “ Chinese children must spend their lives by obeying them and making them proud’’.

So I want now to give my own opinion about the statement. Firstly, children and parents are independent individuals.…[show more]
