How to kill a lion

The business world can be a resilient place. There are very many obstacles, challenges, potential hardships and downfalls lurking around every corner.
Hence, without meticulous strategic plans, preparation and a well structured internal system, companies and organizations alike, will either find themselves on top of the ladder, like brave warriors; or slain and completely dead, like defeated lions.

To prove our value, both in everyday life and in the corporate world, we are forced to face immense challenges, which will test the very core of our beings. To prosper, we have to face these challenges with patience and intelligence; analyze our surroundings (close and distant alike) and develop well-thought out strategies that are well within industry regulations.

Small, start-up companies and organizations are but a fleck of dust in a “lion’s” path; which he will toss aside without even a minimal amount of effort. Very many multinational companies and organizations barely and rarely pay attention to smaller businesses, since they know that these companies cannot really have a menacing impact on them.

However, as these small businesses gain experience and move toward having a foothold, we realize that the corporate world too, can be compared to a hunting ground.

It is of absolute importance to be continuously aware of our surroundings and work toward portraying an image of bravery, rather than pose as a target. To do so we have to closely and periodically analyze our competitors and gather as much information about them as possible.
It will also be within our favour to be at least one step ahead of them at all times; yet all the while staying as distanced as we possibly can. It will only benefit us to be aware of our competitors’ strengths and weaknesses and figure out where we can find a window of opportunity and which elements would…...

How Does Harper Lee Show the Significance of the Title to Kill a Mockingbird

...Write about the ways that Harper Lee shows the significance of the title To Kill a Mockingbird The title of a novel is a significant asset for the writer to express his/her emotions and how they think the novel should be summed up. However Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” isn’t about “mockingbirds”. The word mockingbird is a metaphorical symbolization of the concept of innocence. This essay will be a critical analysis of the significance of the title “To Kill a Mockingbird”. Firstly Boo Radley is a character who exploits the true meaning of the title. Harper Lee presents Boo as a very controversial character due to him being locked in his house for 25 years, also because of his lack of speech and involvement throughout the whole novel. Through Lee’s vivid descriptions and Scouts narrations the reader firstly acknowledges Boo as a monster that is “six and a half feet tall”. Scout personifies Boo as a very intimidating individual through Lee’s vivid descriptions and linguistic imagery. The words “six and a half” are adjectives that describe the physical stature of Boo. The reader may feel Boo is the complete opposite of the titles reference however other readers may feel that Scout’s lack of education and maturity are the culprit of Boo’s false identifications. However throughout the novel the reader acknowledges the true qualities of Boo as does Scout as well. Lee establishes Boo as a peaceful individual whose love for children never stops. In modern society many......

How to Kill a Mocking Bird - Analysis

...To Kill a Mockingbird To Kill a Mockingbird is Harvey Lee’s only novel to this date, it was published in 1960 but set in the 1930s in America’s deep south. The novel won the famous Pulitzer Prize and was quickly made into a successful film. The popularity that the novel immediately attracted endures to modern times and it is still read among High School students. The story concerns the trial of an innocent black man -Tom Robinson has been accused of raping a white woman, Mayella Ewell. The novel also manages to weave another central drama into the story, which reveals the appalling nature of prejudice in many forms, not just that of color, as her ‘mocking birds’ which must not be harmed because they do none, suffer from the cruelty and ignorance of those around them. The story is told through the eyes of the child narrator, Scout, who lives along with her brother, Jem and with their father, Atticus, the town lawyer and destined to represent Tom Robinson. They also have a housekeeper named Calpurnia, to whom they have a very close relationship. In his attitude to Calpurnia, as to much in his life, Atticus challenges the contemporary view because though Calpurnia is black, she is treated as a member of the family, much to the annoyance of his sister, Alexandra. Atticus is in fact the means by which Lee examines much that is wrong with Maycomb society, from his lack of prejudice, to his defense of Mrs. Dubose and Boo Radley and his skillful means of challenging the......

how does harper lee present prejudices in the novel to kill a mockingbird

...How does Harper Lee present the theme of Prejudice in the novel? ‘To Kill a Mockingbird.’? In the novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ Harper Lee presents the theme of prejudice in a number of different ways. She shows that prejudice is present throughout all levels of society in Maycomb. She directs her attention to groups and individuals. ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ was set in the mid 1930’s and although slavery was abolished by the North in 1865 throughout America, the South still treated blacks as inferior, as the slaves they once were and the residents of Maycomb County typify this. The main theme of prejudice in this book is that of racial prejudice. The whole trial of Tom Robinson is full of prejudice against him. Before the trial even commences Reverend Sykes invites the children to sit in the coloured balcony – (Pg 181). Even the black and white public must sit separately! Extreme racial prejudice is shown to us by Harper Lee when she tells us of the colour segregation. In Maycomb there is segregation between black and white people. This is emphasised by the way blacks file in last and are seated in the balcony. Their politeness to the children is shown when four black people give up their front row seats for them. This shows white children also have authority over black adults. It is ironic that the children will have the same viewpoint as the black people attending the trial – in terms of where they see it from. At the time black people could not show their......

Whaling; to Kill or Not to Kill

...Environmental Issue Project – Whaling; to kill or not to kill Larry Baker Rasmussen College Authors note: This assignment is being submitted on August 22, 2014 for Ms. Jaime Farrow’s Section 05 Human Uses of the Environment class. We have all seen, or most of us anyway, the classic movie Moby Dick written by Herman Melville, about the obsessed Captain Ahab who is determined to kill the whale or die trying. Now this is a work of fiction but people have been hunting whales for tens of thousands of years. It only took America about ten years to kill 50 – 60 million buffalo; it makes it hard to believe there are many whales left after thousands of years hunting them. This paper is about the Whaling Debate on whether countries should be allowed to continue to hunt whales or should we leave them protected and my beliefs on the subject. This debate has also focused on issues of sustainability and conservation as well as ownership and national sovereignty. Some of the issues included in these debates is the question of cetacean intelligence this refers to the Cetacea order of mammals, which includes whales, porpoises, and dolphins; and the level of suffering which the animals undergo when caught and killed (The Whale Debate: Whale Wars, 2014). Another hot topic in the debate right now is the right to kill a certain amount of whales for scientific research, Japan kills 1000 minke whales a year and about 100 endangered fin and humpback whales. Whales are mammals the same...

Sea Lions

...For my issues paper I am going to talk about the problems at Bonneville dam, with specifically the salmon munching Sea lions. Since 2002 Bonneville began to have sea lion sightings and at the time there were less than half a dozen of them so they were looked upon as a novelty. Something that was a surprise to see this animal at this particular location since they are native to the coast, a few years went by and the lions numbers increased. By 2004 there were over 100, so the biologists started to see a decrease in salmon numbers, so there started to be irritation instead of interest in the sea lions. This meant now that the people that were trying to increase fish numbers now had another rival, so a question started to be raised about the sea lions and what to do to get them out of the area. In 2008 there started to be rumblings about shooting a few of the animals, although they started with other things such as rubber bullets and empty shells. When this didn’t work they have now began shooting and to the present time there has been 70 confirmed kills, now leading to the question whether or not there should be regulated seasons. Last year research has shown that one third of the spring salmon didn’t make it past the dam, so now there is no doubt that the reason salmon numbers are down is due to the sea lions. So now it basically comes down to how many animals need to be taken out or do all of them need to go? In my opinion they really do need to take care to......

Lion King vs. Hamlet

...mother says to her young child, “Honey, come downstairs and watch Hamlet!” A statement which might sound ludicrous at first, is in reality, more sensible than one might think. Since 1994, The Lion King has been a must-see film for children all around the world. Its 8.5 rating on IMDB lists it alongside of some of the greatest movies ever made. Children’s movies that were released around this time were all shallow and simplistic. The reason why The Lion King was so successful is because it was an unexpected and pleasant anomaly. The Lion King is a story of responsibility and revenge, masked by a setting that is known to be appealing to children. However, this is not the first time something with this same story line has been told. In fact, William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, one of the most popular pieces of literature of all time, parallels The Lion King in many more ways than one. The Lion King and Hamlet are best compared through the actions of the secondary characters, the exploration of the theme of death, and the striking similarities present in each works’ protagonist. Obviously, all plot events are not exactly the same, however the differences are insignificant to the point that the majority of the storyline and major characters still remain the same. The reflections of Hamlet in The Lion King are so strong that there are 3 sets of secondary characters that bear a striking resemblance to one another: Mufasa and King Hamlet, Claudius and Scar, as well as Rosencrantz and......

Four Lions

...Four Lions The movie ”Four Lions” is a British dark comedy from 2010. It is about a group of radicalized young men, who are under the impression that if you die fulfilling a religious commandment, you will enter paradise and be rewarded with 72 vir-gins. The group consists of Omar, the leader, who is disillusioned about the treatment of Muslims around the world and is determined to become a martyr. The easily manipulated and confused Waj, who is intrigued by the idea, jumps on the wag-on. Faisal, the odd man out, but a respected member of the group. Then there is Barry, who also goes by the name Azzam al-Britanni, a white Islamic convert and self-appointed leader (in his own world). While Omar and Waj are participating in a terrorist training camp in Pakistan, Barry recruits a fifth member to their group, Hassan: A young and fun teenager, who seeks to become a part of some-thing greater. The trip to Pakistan ends in disaster and Omar and Waj return to England. As the pieces start falling in to place, and their competing ideologies clash, a human side of them appears and they begin to doubt and regret their in-tentions and actions. But perhaps it is too late? The relationship between the characters changes from person to person as they are all ranked differently in the group. At the top of the hierarchy is Omar, and Waj is his follower. The relationship between Waj and Omar is special because they depend on each other, and their strong bond is evident. Omar......

The Lion King

...excited cub found Scar sunning himself on a rock. “Hey, Uncle Scar!” Simba cried. “My dad just showed me the whole kingdom, and I’m gonna rule it all!” Scar scowled. Then, slowly, he began to smile. “So your father showed you the whole kingdom, did he? Did he show you what’s beyond that rise at the border?” “No,” said Simba. “He said I can’t go there.” “And he’s absolutely right,” Scar replied. “It’s far too dangerous. Only the bravest of lions go there. An elephant graveyard is no place for a young prince.” “An elephant what?” said Simba. “Wow!” “Oh, dear, I’ve said too much,” said Scar, grinning slyly. “Just do me one favor?” he added. “Promise me that you’ll never visit that dreadful place. And remember, it’s our little secret.” As Scar backed away, Simba stared at the distant spot on the horizon. He had no idea that Scar had cleverly set a trap to rid himself of the future king…forever. Simba knew that he would be disobeying his father if he went into the elephant graveyard. But hadn’t Uncle Scar said that only the bravest of lions dared venture there? Wouldn’t Dad be proud of such a brave cub? thought Simba. Soon after, Simba went in search of his best friend Nala. He was happy to find Nala with her mother, Sarafina, and Queen Sarabi. “Mom,” he said to Sarabi, “I just heard about this great place! Can Nala and I go?” “Where is this place, Simba?” his mother asked. “Oh…near the waterhole!” the cub fibbed. Uncle Scar had said it was a secret. “All right,”......

How to Kill a Mockingbird

...To kill a Mockingbird Journal entry #1 “Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it. In rainy weather the streets turned to red slop…” Pg: 5 This quotation on chapter one is Scout’s introductory description of Maycomb. Scout emphasizes the slow pace, Alabama heat, and old fashioned values of the town. She writes of time when she “first knew” Maycomb, indicating that she embarks upon this recollection of her childhood much later in life, as an adult. It makes reference to the widespread poverty of the town, implying that Maycomb is in the midst of the great depression. As stated in the quote “There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with.” As been specified above Maycomb county was a ghost town. In the text on page six it clarifies how mysterious it was, “Maycomb County had recently been told that it had nothing to fear but fear itself.” To kill a Mockingbird Journal entry #2 “I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read.

How Guilt Is Portrayed in Macbeth and to Kill a Mockingbird

...How Guilt is Portrayed in To Kill a Mockingbird and Macbeth In 1623 William Shakespeare wrote his play Macbeth, 337 years later Harper Lee wrote her novel To Kill a Mockingbird. Although the texts were written in entirely different eras and settings, both texts are similar in the theme of guilt. Guilt is a self-critical emotion that humans feel that compromises their sense of moral integrity. Guilt allows whoever is feeling this emotion to know that they have wronged another person or themselves and gone against their sense of responsibility or moral standards. In both Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the lead villains follow parallel paths with regard to their guilt, undertaking ill advised courses of actions which result not only in the undoing of the women in their lives, but also ultimately their own demise. Early on in William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth the lead character Macbeth is at war with himself over what the correct course of action is, burdened by the Weird Sisters’ stating “All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!” (I.iii.51), which leaves Shakespeare with the choice of taking Macbeth down the path of letting life play it’s course or taking matters into his own hands. Macbeth ultimately chooses to take matters into his own hands and kills King Duncan. This allows the play to follow the action plan of Macbeth instantly becoming king of Scotland, causing him to spend the rest of the play covering up his tracks. Similarly, in......

Lion King

...The Lion King and Hamlet Essay The Lion King & Hamlet - Comparative Essay “All it takes for Evil to prevail in this world is for good men to do nothing.” Disney’s The Lion King placed a children’s façade on a very serious story of responsibility and revenge. This theme, however, is one of the oldest in history, and while it is not the most apparent, it does exist by William Shakespeare. The Lion King seems not to be based on a fairytale, but rather on the Tragedy of Hamlet by William Shakespeare. The basic character archetypes are concealed, and the storyline is simplified for children. But with a closer inspection of the characters themselves and the storyline, we the seasoned readers, can see just how apparent these similarities are.  The story of The Lion King closely parallels that of Hamlet. It is about the jealousy of an uncle named Scar towards his nephew, Simba, who is the son of the king, and rightful heir to the throne. This jealousy drives him to take drastic action to secure himself to the throne. The only way he can do this is to kill his brother, King Mufasa and Simba. He accomplishes this by killing Mufasa and goes on to become the King of the Pride Lands and leader of the pack, thus “marrying” Simba’s mother, Sarobi. After the plan that Scar puts into action is completed, Scar finds his plan was only half successful; Simba survives. However, the clever, smooth talking uncle tricks the young and susceptible Simba into thinking that he is responsible......
