Directing William Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet :: William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet

Directing Romeo and Juliet   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Being a director in a production such as Romeo and Juliet is no easy task, and I enter into this paper with that in mind. My goals are to be creative, and do things differently from the many versions of the play we have viewed in class.   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Each of those directors took the original text, written by William Shakespeare, and turned it into a unique version of their own; unique in the sense that they changed the tragedy by taking out lines, conversation or even entire scenes to better suit that particular director’s needs.   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  In a more extreme version of the play, directed by Baz Lurhmann, some of the weapons such as swords were replaced by modern day guns, but despite this he still managed to keep it all in context by cleverly placing words, or using other satire. With this paper I hope to produce my own unique version of the play.   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Before I discuss my modifications to the play and how I would go about directing my own version, the way I see the relationship between Romeo and Juliet should be looked at. In my opinion, the couple isn’t genuinely in love. They feelings they have for each other is pure lust, rather then a deep passionate love. I find it unlikely that they can know each other well enough and on such a personal level to have a lasting, meaningful relationship. One minute Romeo is entirely in love with Rosaline and the next Juliet comes in to the picture and Rosaline goes out of his mind entirely. Shakespeare made note of this, by having Friar Lawrence state a question about Romeo’s short love affair with Rosaline. ‘Holy Saint Francis, what a change is here! Is Rosaline, that thou didst love so dear, So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.’ (2, 3, 65-68)   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  The hatred between the Montagues’ and the Capulates’ are also working against the couple. While Romeo and Juliet are seemingly deeply in love, the rest of their families were continually battling it out, with death usually being the end result. How could two lovers keep a relationship together with so much violence and hated without totally abandoning their families? I feel that this is another example that the couple wasn’t deeply in love. This hate is shown with several â€Å"battle† scenes between the two families.

What It Means to Be a Pastor

â€Å"Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? † says the LORD in Isaiah 43:18-19(Holy Bible, KJV). Though these words were written thousands of years ago, they speak anew for being a pastor today. How does a person know if they are called to be a pastor? How does a person know what God is calling them to do? Why is it important to consider carefully and prayerfully one’s call, especially a call to be a pastor? I am convinced that to enter pastoral ministry without God’s call is one of the greatest deceptions of the devil. This is so because the one who is deceived and drawn into pastoral ministry apart from God’s call will not be as effective, because it takes a special anointing, and a closer relationship with God to be a pastor, but worse, the one who ventures into ministry for the wrong reasons will be powerless to prevent the desecration of God’s holy name. Here are some questions to consider for those who may be in the feeling stage of considering their call. Why is it important to consider carefully and prayerfully one’s call, especially a call to be a pastor? The non-called pastor, the non-called person in any position, is one of Satan’s most effective weapons. (See 1 Timothy 4; 2 Timothy 3-4; 2 Peter 2; Jude; and Revelation 2-3). Spiritual leadership requires the ability to listen, to respond to, and to effectively communicate God’s desire and will for a congregation Ministry is not only teaching, or being in view of congregation, but it is above all serving. It is shepherding, discipline. It is running to the hospital to sit at the beside of the sick and doing so at any time of night or day. In today’s economic times, we all have one way or another faced some difficult times, and instead of drawing closer to God, there seems to be a collective turning away from God. . According to the Western Recorder August 3, 2010 issue, the average salary for a full time Southern Baptist Pastor is $55,829; while the average pay package for a full time Southern Baptist pastor is $66,275. I don’t know about you, but these amounts sound insanely high to me. I figured that pastors made about $10,000 less than this; I make almost $28,000 less than this (God takes care of us). (http://sbcvoices. com/what-is-the-average-pay-for-a-full-time-southern-baptist-pastor-or-staff-member/#sthash. grh71N84. dpuf) Being a pastor will require a lot of your time and a whole lot of sacrifice, your wife and children will miss you every time you step out to minister and you will constantly be reminded of the cost of such a venture. Being a pastor is a continuous sacrifice, there will be times you have to choose between your ministry and your personal life, when the phone rings in the wee hours of the morning and you have to deal with your wife going through the house, cussing the dog and kicking the cat because the members don’t seem to respect the house, but you must go because the will of God must be done. Being a pastor is not something you can be trained to do, because to pastor you must have a love for God’s people. There is no other job or position in which people allow you into living rooms, hospital rooms and often the darkest places of their lives, there are very few jobs that require the amount of love and compassion it takes to truly and effectively care for God’s people, to whom much is given, much is required.

How Fast Can Humans Run

How fast can humans run? The fastest person clocked on our planet today is the Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt, who ran the 100-meter sprint at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing in a world record of 9.58 seconds, which works out to be about 37.6 kilometers per hour or 23.4 miles per hour. For a brief period during that sprint, Bolt reached an astounding 12.3 meters per second (27.51 mph or 44.28 kph).nd (27.51 mph or 44.28 kph). As a physical activity, running is qualitatively different from walking. In running, a persons legs flex and the muscles are forcibly stretched and then contracted during acceleration. The potential gravitational energy and the kinetic energy available in a persons body changes as the center of mass in the body changes. That is thought to be because of the alternating release and absorption of energy in the muscles. Elite Runners Scholars believe that the fastest runners, the elite sprinters, are those who run economically,  meaning that they use a low amount of energy per unit of distance run. The ability to do that is influenced by muscle fiber distribution, age, sex, and other anthropometric factors. The fastest of the elite runners are young men. The possible velocity of a runner is also influenced by biomechanical variables, somewhat controversially attributed to the cycle of the runners gait. Factors thought to influence a persons velocity are shorter ground contact times, lower stride frequencies, longer swing times, greater stride angles, and longer strides. In particular, sprint runners maximize their acceleration and maximum sprinting velocities by applying greater mass-specific ground forces, specifically horizontal ankle velocity, contact time, and step rate. Long-Distance Runners When considering velocity, sports researchers also look at long-distance runners, those who race distances between 5 and 42 km (3 and 26 mi). The fastest of these runners use considerable plantar pressure (the amount of pressure the foot puts on the ground) as well as changes in biomechanical parameters, movement of the legs as measured over time and space. The fastest group in marathon running  (like that of sprinters) is men aged between 25 and 29. Those men have an average velocity between 170 and 176 meters per minute, based on marathons run in Chicago and New York between 2012 and 2016.​ Because the New York City marathon runs in waves (that is to say, there are four groups of runners who begin the race at about 30-minute intervals) statistics are available for runner velocities at 5 km segments throughout the race. Lin and colleagues used that data to provide support to the notion one factor of speed is competition; runners increase speed and change positions more frequently at the end of the race. The Upper Limits So how fast could humans run? In comparison to other animals, humans are very slow; the fastest animal on record is the cheetah at 70 mph (112 kph); even Usain Bolt can only attain a fraction of that. Recent research on the most elite runners have led sports medicine specialists Peter Weyand and colleagues to suggest in  press reports that the upper limit might reach 35 to 40 mph: but no scholar has been willing to put a number on that in a peer-reviewed publication to date. Statistics According to Rankings.com, the fastest three male and three female sprinters in the world today are: Usain Bolt (Jamaica), 9.58 seconds, set at the 2008 Summer Olympic games in Beijing, 10.44 meters per secondTyson Gay (United States) 9.69, during the 2008 Olympic Trials, 10.32 m/sAsafa Powell (Jamaica) 9.72, heats at the 2007 IAAF Rieti Grand Prix 10.29 m/sFlorence Joyner Griffith (US) 10.49,  1988 Olympics in Seoul, 9.53 m/sCarmelita Jeter (US) 10.64, Shanghai Golden Grand Prix, 2009, 9.40 m/sMarion Jones (US), 10.65, IAFF World Cup, 1998, 9.39 m/s The three fastest marathon runners, male and female, are, according to Runners World: Dennis Kimetto (Kenya), 2:02:57, Berlin Marathon 2014Kenenisa Bekele (Ethiopia), 2:03:03, Berlin 2016Elud Kipchoge (Kenya), 2:03:05, London 2016Paula Radcliffe (Great Britain), 2:15:25, London, 2003Mary Keitany (Kenya) 2:17:01, London, 2017Tirunesh Dibaba (Ethiopia) 2:17:56, London, 2017 Fastest Humans on Earth Runner Mi Per Hour Km Per Hour Usain Bolt 23.350 37.578 Tyson Gay 23.085 37.152 Asafa Powell 23.014 37.037 Florence Joyner Griffith 21.324 34.318 Carmelita Jeter 21.024 33.835 Marion Jones 21.004 33.803 Dennis Kimetto 12.795 20.591 Kenenisa Bekele 12.784 20.575 Elud Kipchoge 12.781 20.569 Paula Radcliffe 11.617 18.696 Mary Keitany 11.481 18.477 Tirunesh Dibaba 11.405 18.355 Sources Lin Z, and Meng F. 2018.

Widget Production Executive Summary free essay sample

Though alternative one may have fewer workers the workers can bring productivity up from 208 to 392 units which are also more than what alternative two can produce with a few more workers than alternative one. Alternative one not only lowers labor wages per year but also has almost double the cash flow in year one and continues to raise during years two through 5. Effects on Productivity Alternative one provides a reduction in down time therefore raising the productivity. Productivity jumps from 208 to 392 units. An upgrade in equipment of $1. million in robotics and mobile storage carts is needed. These upgrades will allow company to produce more in the allotted eight hour shift. The life span of the new upgraded equipment is seven years. This will also help production to stay on track. Not only does it allow less down time from wasted motion but should also have a reduced down time for any adjustments or modifications on the new equipment. We will write a custom essay sample on Widget Production Executive Summary or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page Network Strategy There can be some benefits of using a network strategy to streamline operational procedures. Using this type of streamlining can help to keep the employees on the assembly line up to date on where numbers are with production.Management can benefit well with the network strategy as it can be immediate. They will be able to know where the assembly line is on the production numbers and how many worker’s compensations claims are active. It will help to keep communication open between the assembly line workers and management as to how the new system is working. Conclusion It has been decided that for Taylor Inc to thrive in production but minimize worker’s compensation that alternative one is the best choice. Taylor Inc will be able to maximize its production and therefore maximize the company’s profits. Spending the extra funds on updated robotics and storage carts will allow Taylor Inc to be successful and save in other areas.
