Halos in Christianity

...The halo was incorporated into Christian art sometime in the 4th century[citation needed] with the earliest iconic images of Christ, initially the only figure shown with one (together with his symbol, the Lamb of God). Initially the halo was regarded by many as a representation of the Logos of Christ, his divine nature, and therefore in very early (before 500) depictions of Christ before his Baptism by John he tends not to be shown with a halo, it being a matter of debate whether his Logos was innate from birth (the Orthodox view), or acquired at Baptism (the Nestorian view). At this period he is also shown as a child or youth in Baptisms, though this may be a hieratic rather than age-related representation [20] Nativity and Transfiguration of Christ, with cross haloes; the apostles, angels and prophets have plain ones. (1025-50, Cologne). A cruciform halo, that is to say a cross within, or extending beyond, a halo is used to represent the persons of the Holy Trinity, especially Jesus, and especially in medieval art. In Byzantine and Orthodox images, inside each of the bars of the cross in Christ's halo is one of the Greek letters Ο Ω Ν, making up ὁ ὢν — "ho ōn", literally, "the Existing One" — indicating the divinity of Jesus.[21] At least in later Orthodox images, each bar of this cross is composed of three lines, symbolising the dogmas of the Trinity, the oneness of God and the two natures of Christ. In mosaics in Santa Maria Maggiore (432-40) the juvenile Christ has...

Intro to Meteorology Week 4

...Violet is refracted the greatest. 2) What is a mirage and why does it always disappear as the observer gets closer?  A mirage is a naturally occurring optical phenomenon in which light rays are bent to produce a displaced image of distant objects or the sky. Mirages appear at very low viewing angles, when you are far away. As you approach, the viewing angle increases and the mirage disappears, or moves farther away. The reflection of heat dissipates in the human eye causing the mirage or blur to vanish. 3) If you were looking for a rainbow in the morning, which direction (N, S, E, W) would you face and why?  It is best to look towards the west. Rainbows always appear in the opposite side of the sky away from the sun. 4) What is a halo?  A Halo is a burst of light produced by ice crystals creating colored or white arcs and spots in the sky. Many are near the sun or moon but others are elsewhere and even in the opposite part of the sky. They can also form around artificial lights in very cold weather when ice crystals called diamond dust are floating in the nearby air. 5) Why is the sky blue?  The sky is blue because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light on a cloudless day.  When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colors because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight. 6) Why are sunrises and sunsets red/orange?  Because the light from the sun has passed a......

...1. 子貢問友(交友之道)。子曰:“(朋友有錯的時候)忠告(勸告)而善道(引導)之,不可(不聽從,不聽取)則止,毋自辱(自取其辱)焉。” 子貢問交友之道。先生說:“朋友有過錯,要忠心勸告,善於引導,若不聽從,也就算了。可別自取其辱。” 2. 子曰:“群居(聚集;湊在一起)終日(成天),言不及義(治國之道,為人處事之類的正經的事),好行小慧,難矣哉!” 先生說:“天天呆在一起,不談正經事,喜歡玩弄小聰明,這就難辦了。” 3. 孔子曰:“益者三友,損者三友。友直(正直),友諒(誠實),友多聞(見多識廣),益矣。友便辟(虛偽,做門面功夫),友善柔(圓滑奉承),友便佞(巧言善辯),損矣。” 孔先生說:“三種朋友是有益的,三種朋友是有害的。跟正直的人、誠實的人、見多識廣的人交朋友,是有益的。跟諂媚偽飾的人、圓滑奉承的人、巧言善辯的人交朋友,就有害了。” 子女篇: 1. 子游問孝,子曰:“今之孝者,是謂能養。至於犬馬,皆能有養(養活)。不敬(發自內心的關心敬愛),何以別(與養活犬馬有什麼區別)乎?” 子游問先生:“孝是怎樣的?(什麼是孝?)”先生說:“今天人們所謂的孝,指的只是養活父母。可是,這和養狗養馬有什麼區別呢?只有對父母充滿內心的敬愛,才稱得上真正的孝啊!” 2. 子曰:“事(侍奉)父母,(父母有錯)幾(多次)諫(規勸),見志不從(聽從),又敬(恭敬)不違(逆反),勞(擔心)而不怨。” 先生說:“侍奉父母,若發現父母有錯,要委婉地規勸,表達自己看法,父母如不聽從,也常要恭敬他們,不違逆他們,雖然為父母擔憂,卻不怨恨他們。” 3. 子曰:“父母在,不遠遊(遠行)。遊必有方。” 先生說:“父母在時,不遠行。如果遠行,也要有一定的方向。” 4. 子曰:“父母之年(年齡),不可不知也。一則以喜,一則以。” 孔子說:“父母的年齡,不可不清楚。既為他們仍然健在而歡喜,也為他們正在衰老而憂愁。” 2) 敬愛父母,哪怕是小事父母也會很開心,重視父母…… 3) 善良、幽默、有話題、關心… 1) “馬腳”指破綻。低級有趣的人雖然沒有學問但有常識,並且幽默,足以掩蓋他的無知。 2) 朋友像風,容易得到,卻又容易失去。 友情像沙,握得越緊,越容易流失。 1) 描寫了江邊的楊柳,垂著綠色的枝條;江中流水,平如鏡面。 2) “道是無晴還有晴”是一個雙關語,“晴”和“情”同音,表面上寫的是梅雨時節陰晴不定的天氣,實際上表達了少女矛盾不定、忐忑不安的心情。 1) 蘇軾19歲時與16歲的王弗結婚。王弗年輕貌美,溫柔賢惠,二人恩愛情深。可惜王弗27歲時就逝世了,蘇軾悲痛的心情,實在難以言說。十年後,身在密州的蘇軾夢見王氏,編寫下了這首悼亡詞,抒發他對王氏逝世之痛,以及對王氏的懷念之情。 2) 對妻子的思念之情:“不思量,自難忘”分離十年了,不用刻意去想你,也自是難以忘懷兩人往日的美好時光。“無處話淒涼”這句話表達了作者思念妻子和有話想對她說但又不能對她說的感覺。“相顧無言,唯有淚千行”就算和妻子見了面,也因為有千言萬語不知從何說起,而變的沒話說,一行行淚就代表了(說盡了)兩人相隔十年的辛酸與思念。 悲傷之情:“縱使相逢應不識,塵滿面,鬢如霜。”告訴亡妻現在兩人若見面,恐怕應該不認識了,因為他遭到政治迫害,飽嘗官場風波,臉色蒼老了不少,也開始有白頭發了。 1)......

...The combinations of outputs that lie on the PPF illustrate the concept of production efficiency. These points are the maximum production points possible and are attained only by producing the goods and services at the lowest possible cost. Any point inside the frontier reflects production where one or both outputs may be increased without decreasing the other output level. Clearly, such points cannot be production efficient. 3. How does the production possibilities frontier show that every choice involves a tradeoff? Movements along the PPF frontier illustrate that producing more of one good requires producing less of other good. This observation reflects the result that a tradeoff must be made when producing output efficiently. 4. How does the production possibilities frontier illustrate opportunity cost? The negative slope of the production possibility curve illustrates the concept of opportunity cost. Moving along the production possibility frontier, producing additional units of a good requires that the output of another good must fall. This sacrifice is the opportunity cost of producing more of the first good. 6. Why does the PPF bow outward and what does that imply about the relationship between opportunity cost and the quantity produced? Some resources are better suited to produce one type of good or service, like pizza. Other resources are better suited to produce other goods or services, like DVDs. If society allocates......

Halo Error

...Saari 08 Fall Halo Errors in Performance Management Systems - Anita Rajendran Performance Appraisals are the backbone of Human Resources and a crucial aspect of the entire Performance Management System (PMS) but also the most difficult to implement. The effectiveness of a Performance Appraisal can be seriously impacted by the common errors that raters make. Halo is one such error and can be defined as "the influence of a global evaluation on individual attributes of a person" (Nisbett & Wilson, 1977, p. 250) or "the influence of a rater's general impression on ratings of specific ratee qualities" (Lance, LaPointe, & Stewart, 1994, p. 339). The article tries to understand the background and research done into halo error and whether there is clear evidence to suggest that there is a positive or negative link to rating accuracy due to Halo error. It attempts to see if there are ways in which an organization can effectively utilize these research findings to counter halo error or whether any experiments done are effective only in a laboratory setting. Finally review on whether this aspect of the performance appraisal can be incorporated into an actual performance appraisal system.

...and $494 billion in 2008 and 2009, respectively. The firm closed 475 stores in the U.S. in 2009 to reduce costs. But more recently, sales revenues rebounded to $11.2 billion in 2011, and profits reached a record $1.2 billion. Still, the Starbucks name and image connect with millions of consumers around the globe. Up until recently, it was one of the fastest-growing brands in annual BusinessWeek surveys of the top 100 global brands. On Wall Street, Starbucks was one of the last great growth stories. Its stock, including four splits, soared more than 2,200 percent over a decade, surpassing Walmart, General Electric, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, and IBM in total returns. In 2006 the stock price peaked at over $40, after which it fell to just $4, and then again rebounded to more than $50 per share. Schultz’s team is hard-pressed to grind out new profits in a home market that is quickly becoming saturated. The firm’s 12,000 locations in the United States are mostly in big cities, affluent suburbs, and shopping malls. In coffee-crazed Seattle, there is a Starbucks outlet for every 9,400 people, and the company considers that the upper limit of coffee-shop saturation. In Manhattan’s 24 square miles, Starbucks has 124 cafés, with more on the way. That’s one for every 12,000 people—meaning that there could be room for even more stores. Given such concentration, it is likely to take annual same-store sales increases of 10 percent or more if the company is going to match its historic......

...Running Head: LITERATURE REVIEW: HALO EFFECT   1 Literature Review: HALO EFFECT NO NAME GIVEN HERE Liberty University BUSI 600-B04 21 January 2013 LITERATURE REVIEW: HALO EFFECT Abstract 2 The term “Halo Effect” has several definitions. In conducting business research, it is important to understand which definition is to be used and apply that definition to the problem at hand. In this paper, we will attempt to define the correct version of the halo effect as it applies to this literature review. This paper will then look at the history of the halo effect in business and define how it is being used today. During the writing, examples and studies regarding the halo effect that have already been completed will also be reviewed to see if the halo effect can genuinely and repeatedly be used in business to increase profits or generate revenues. LITERATURE REVIEW: HALO EFFECT Literature Review: Halo Effect Introduction Definition When discussing and researching the term “Halo Effect” the various definitions of the 3 phrase must be reviewed. Once reviewed, the researcher then has the responsibility to determine which definition best fits their research question at hand in order to best formulate the research design and subsequent answer. One of the definitions of halo effect is from the textbook Business research methods by Donald Cooper. It is defined as “error caused when prior observations influence perceptions of current observations” (Cooper &......

Halo Effect

...The halo effect refers to a bias whereby the perception of a positive trait in a person or product positively influences further judgments about traits of that person or products by the same manufacturer. One of the more common halo effects is the judgment that a good looking person is intelligent and amiable. There is also a reverse halo effect whereby perception of a negative or undesirable trait in individuals, brands, or other things influences further negative judgments about the traits of that individual, brand, etc. If a person "looks evil" or "looks guilty" you may judge anything he says or does with suspicion; eventually you may feel confident that you have confirmed your first impression with solid evidence when, in fact, your evidence is completely tainted and conditioned by your first impression. The hope that the halo effect will influence a judge or jury is one reason some criminal lawyers might like their clients to be clean-shaven and dressed neatly when they appear at trial. The phrase was coined by psychologist Edward Thorndike in 1920 to describe the way commanding officers rated their soldiers. He found that officers usually judged their men as being either good or bad "right across the board. There was little mixing of traits; few people were said to be good in one respect but bad in another."* The old saying that first impressions make lasting impressions is at the heart of the halo effect. If a soldier made a good (or bad) first impression on his...

Halo Effect

... The Halo effect Mr. Yegrrrrn Dennohrr Sasha College 24/05/2014 The halo effect The phenomenon which occurs when an individual judges a person and decides on his likability based on his specific traits. The occurrence of the halo effect is best described in an instance where a movie star or a musician often portrayed not only as being attractive but also likable. An so based on these qualities, most individuals tend to think that they also are friendly, cheerful, have a good personality and so on and so forth. (Thorndike, 1920, p. 25-29). In trying to find an explanation to this phenomenon, theorists identified the socio-cultural theory which plays a major role in explaining this phenomenon. The socio-cultural theory provides an explanation on how social interaction and cultural interaction affects what the mind perceives. It is clear that the mind plays a very important role in the halo effect since it is the one that determines likability. (Efran, 1974, p. 45–54) In this document, in-depth discussions on halo effect are going to be looked into, from the writers opinion, the concept of the halo effect can be generally categorized under the attribute of likability. In other words people make judgments based on the qualities one is attracted to for example people like people who are intelligent, skillful, attractive, among others. Basically it is all about likability of a person, a product or a service. Some of the personal experiences on the halo effect are discussed......

Case 4-4

...Case 04-4 Three Little Pigs, Inc. Three Little Pigs, Inc. (PIGS), a public entity, is a vertically-integrated provider of pork products to the wholesale and retail food service and institutional markets in the United States. The Company produces approximately 4.1 million hogs per year and processes the majority of the hogs in its own facilities. The Company also sells a portion of the hogs produced (live hogs) to outside third parties. PIGS does not have any firm commitments to sell live hogs to third parties, nor does it hedge its live hogs through commodity futures contracts. There are essentially three major categories of hog inventory—live hogs ready for sale, developing animals, and processed pork products. Farmer Joe, CEO of the Company, has represented that the processed pork product prices are sufficient to cover the costs of producing such products, i.e., the wholesale prices of processed pork products, such as loins, hams, and bacon exceed the cost to bring such products to market. As a result, management believes that there is no lower of cost or market issue related to live hogs ready for sale or developing animals that will be internally processed and sold as processed pork products. However, there are live hogs in other locations that cannot be easily transported and processed at the Company’s main processing plants. As a result, these live hogs must be sold to third parties at spot market prices, which have declined, as further discussed below. During the......
