A brief history about Julian of Norwich
As the history is a treasure trove with interesting and fascinating descriptions of the people, who has done a great service to the world, unfortunately some great people were not written or mentioned anywhere, yet their great devotion and the service can be enjoyed even today. Julian of Norwich was one such character; fortunately the world has many important facts and information about this wonderful person,
The Christian church will never forget the name of this great anchoress, who was born in Norfolk in 1342 and died in Norwich in 1416. Julian has been venerated in the Anglican and Lutheran chapters, as one of their most important mystics. Though her writings have done a great deal of impact on the Christianity, Roman Catholic Church did not give her full recognition.
The Christian world has a little knowledge about this great lady. Even her name was not known even today. The name “Julian” has been given to her, because her living place or the cell was fixed to the wall of the famous church, the St. Julian in Norwich. Her date of birth and other details are merely suggested and it is believed that she was from a wealthy family of the city. There was a plague in her city, and lots of people had to die as a result of a deadly outbreak of a certain disease. Some scholars argue that Julian was an orphan. They further argue that she had to become an anchoress as a result of those hardships.
The historical event was started, when she was about 30 years old, she was suffering from a certain illness and it was very critical. Julian was at her death bed with only god beside her as her sole survivor. On her…...

Norwich Memorandum

...Memorandum TO: Senior Management FROM: Mario Jackson DATE: February 13, 2013 RE: Lathe A and B A review of lathes A and B was made for the Norwich Tool Company. This analysis was conducted by Mr. Mario Jackson, to determine the incremental benefits between lathe A and B. After closely analyzing the data from lathe A and lathe B it has been determined that Lathe B should be chosen for this project. Lathe B has a comparative advantage over lathe A due to the fact that it has a payback of 3.65 years and Lathe A has a has a payback of 4.04 years. In the long run it is a faster payoff. After doing an overview of the net present value is 58,132.88 for lathe A and an Internal Rate of Return of 15.95 percent. Lathe B has a net present value of 43,483.24 and an Internal Rate of Return of 17.34. Both options offer a Net present value greater than zero, which means they are both acceptable. The Internal Rate of Return for both Lathes is greater than 13% which is the minimum required expectation for Norwich Tool Company. The option of lathe B continues to be the better choice. The rankings in the two options are not conflicting since there is still an advantage of Lathe B over Lathe A. Both options are Greater than zero for the net present value and the Internal Rate of Return is greater than 13 percent, yet the investment for lathe B is less than lathe A, which indicates that the risk of return trade off again makes lathe B the top prospect since it has a......

Characterisics of Mediealism

...Old Saxon poem thought to have been lost until a fragment from it was found late in the nineteenth century in the Vatican Library. Germanic mythology and legend preserved in Old Icelandic literature centuries later than Beowulf provide us with better insights into stories known to the poet than anything in ancient Greek and Roman epic poetry. "Estates and Orders" samples ideas about medieval society and some of its members and institutions. Particular attention is given to religious orders and to the ascetic ideals that were supposed to rule the lives of men and women living in religious communities (such as Chaucer's Prioress, Monk, and Friar, who honor those rules more in the breach than in the observance) and anchorites (such as Julian of Norwich) living apart. The Rule of Saint Benedict, written for a sixth-century religious community, can serve the modern reader as a guidebook to the ideals and daily practices of monastic life. The mutual influence of those ideals and new aristocratic ideals of chivalry is evident in the selection from the Ancrene Riwle(Rule for Anchoresses, NAEL 8, [1.157–159]) and The Book of the Order of Chivalry. Though medieval social theory has little to say about women, women were sometimes treated satirically as if they constituted their own estate and profession in rebellion against the divinely ordained rule of men. An outstanding instance is the "Old Woman" from the Romance of the Rose, whom Chaucer reinvented as the Wife of Bath. The......

Is Julian Casablancas Awesome?

...When his big frame fills the doorway, heads turn and folks mutter. On a weekday evening none of the New Yorkers in the International Bar on 3rd and 7th in Manhattan expected to be sipping their drinks next to "the coolest man in rock". Doe-eyed, floppy-haired Julian Casablancas takes his place in as unassuming way as you can when you have been told so often that your music represents this very city. But perhaps the frisson of cool abates a little when he opens his mouth. You see, Casablancas doesn't sound like the ultimate hipster. He has slipped in at 6pm for an early-evening drink after a photo shoot and he orders a Coke in a distinctly nerdy nasal tone. On record with his band, The Strokes, Casablancas's vocals often sound as if they were recorded down an ancient, buzzing telephone line. It comes as quite a shock to realise that these are not special studio effects. This is what he sounds like in real life. "I'm trying to shrug off a cold I think," he says. He's ordering "soft" because of this but also because he no longer likes boozing it up. Also, his wife, Acacia, is expecting their first child within four weeks. Besides, Casablancas famously got into his rock 'n' roll meltdown quite early. He was 13 when he first got drunk, and his father John Casablancas, the founder of the Elite modelling agency, sent him for counselling and then packed him off to his own former private school, Le Rosey in Switzerland. "Ah, they thought I had an issue but I did it because I......

Limited Effects Theory

...Global Environmental Change 17 (2007) 445–459 Barriers perceived to engaging with climate change among the UK public and their policy implications Irene Lorenzonia,b,������, Sophie Nicholson-Coleb, Lorraine Whitmarshb a School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ, UK b Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ, UK Received 25 August 2006; received in revised form 12 January 2007; accepted 17 January 2007 Abstract This paper reports on the barriers that members of the UK public perceive to engaging with climate change. It draws upon three mixed-method studies, with an emphasis on the qualitative data which offer an in-depth insight into how people make sense of climate change. The paper defines engagement as an individual’s state, comprising three elements: cognitive, affective and behavioural. A number of common barriers emerge from the three studies, which operate broadly at ‘individual’ and ‘social’ levels. These major constraints to individual engagement with climate change have implications for achieving significant reductions in greenhouse gases in the UK. We argue that targeted and tailored information provision should be supported by wider structural change to enable citizens and communities to reduce their carbon dependency. Policy implications for effective engagement are discussed. r 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Keywords:......

...times to wring out the very last of your energy. With sharp corners like Sirens, I’m not the only man to have cycled up the final hill using one arm and leg as the other bleeds profusely over the ground. But that’s what entrants to this race prepare themselves for. Pain. Lots of pain. There’s no pulling out. The crowds gather for the fun and games and gorge on the homemade cakes sold from the small café, torturing the injured and energy-depleted further. The final run leg is pure survival. To finish the race entitles you to hold your head high; to win it puts you amongst legends.

The answer is simple: geography. Bala is a beautiful setting for a triathlon but the downside of being located within Snowdonia National Park is that any race set there has to go up and down the same mountains. Even pancake-flat middledistance events are hard, so throw in a few hills and things get tougher. While poor weather conditions can affect any race, the geography of Bala means the effects of the wind and rain are multiplied the higher you climb. I overheard a marshal voicing their confusion, as everyone who finished the race seemed to be displaying signs of sunburn. This reddening of the skin wasn’t caused by the sun – it was from the intensity of the wind and rain! Although it......

Billy Kee's goal will almost certainly tie up a play-off place if it stays the same. 15:48: GOAL- Cardiff 0-1 Stoke - Marko Arnautovic (penalty, 45 mins) Terrible news for Cardiff as Marko Arnautovic keeps his cool to send David Marshall the wrong way and put Stoke ahead. It is harsh on Cardiff who have performed well in the opening 45 minutes, but find themselves behind. 15:48: HALF-TIME- Newcastle 1-1 Swansea How is that half-time cup of tea tasting? 15:47: MOTD's John Motson at Upton Park HALF-TIME- West Ham 0-0 Crystal Palace "Julian Speroni's save from Andy Carroll's header was the closest either side have come to a goal after the poignant pre-kick-off commemorations of the life of young striker Dylan Tombides." 15:47: PENALTY to Stoke Controversy here at the Cardiff City Stadium as Peter Odemwingie is adjudged to have been fouled by Kim Bo-Kyung. 15:46: MOTD's Steve Bower at Villa Park HALF-TIME- Aston Villa 0-0 Southampton "Southampton have had nearly 75% possession in this first half and for an away team that really encapsulates the mood around Villa Park at the moment.

Evil and Good

...be finite, if you are made by a good God and can accept your finitude. To me, Adams's near collapse of the categories of finitude and sin seems a dramatic move. Making it would require a good many changes at other points in standard Christian theology, and at minimum Adams needs to say a good bit more, I think, to make that all seem like a good idea. On the face of it, I would say that our inability to face God's holiness derives more from how we have misused what we were given than from how we were made, and Adams did not persuade me of her contrary view. Second worry: Adams puts little emphasis on the distinctions between the victims and the perpetrators of horrendous evils. Both suffer affliction, and sin is, for Adams as for Julian of Norwich, a form of suffering (163). One of Adams's criticisms of liberation theology is that it too sharply divides people into victims to be comforted and oppressors to be punished. She sees everyone trapped together in horrendous evil and in need of God's mercy. In this I think she captures something Christians need to say. When we see the relatives of the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing, and then see young Timothy McVeigh, who did this horrible thing out of motives and a life experience we cannot understand and now may never know, our prayer must surely be, `God have mercy on them all'. Adams and I both, I gather, at least hope for universal salvation, so I do not mean to insist that perpetrators have to get eternal punishment.......

My Hometown and Norwich

...very deep feeling with Beijing. In order to obtain more choices and opportunities for the future life, I chose to come to Norwich to continue learning from a month ago. As we all known, the world is a vast and varied place,and every place has different customs. And I found some similarities and differences between Beijing and Norwich. I would explore only a few of the most important ones here. I will talking about the similarities between the two city. Firstly, let’s start from the city transport. Beijing and Norwich are one of the most important and biggest city in their country. So the transport is a important part in their city. Both Norwich and Beijing have convenient transportation and well-developed transport. Secondly, both cities are located of the east in their countries. Thirdly, both two cities have similar public facilities, for instance, two cities both have prefect hospital system, education system and recreational facilities. Now let's have a quick and short look at differences between Beijing and Norwich. First of all, Beijing is much bigger than Norwich. Beijing covers an area of more than 6336 square miles. Moreover, Beijing has a population of 14.93 million people, and Norwich has 3 million people. In addition, two cities have different climate. Beijing is a city with four distinct seasons. Affected by latitude and longitude, Norwich has greater temperature than Beijing. In my opinion, two cities have more differences than similarities. The reason......

Financing Alternatives - Julian Eistheimer & Co

...Case 2 - Financing Alternatives - Rationale 1) Boudior's Inc - Leasing Arrangement - they cannot use their real estate to acquire loan since it is already under mortage - same with inventory which is already under chattel mortgage - they can negotiate for a lease-to-own arrangement "wikipedia" These contracts are commonly used where a buyer wants to purchase a home, or building but due to credit issues would not qualify for a conventional mortgage and does not wish to, or would not qualify, for other financing. A lease-to-own purchase (also "rent-to-own purchase" or "lease purchase") is a lease combined with an option to purchase the property within a specified period, usually 3 years or less, at an agreed-upon price. The borrower pays an option fee, 1% to 5% of the price, which is credited to the purchase price. The borrower pays rent, and an additional rent premium that is also credited to the purchase price. If the purchase option is not exercised, the buyer loses both the option fee and the rent premium. 2) Timberland Power & Light - Long Term Bonds $900 m long term debt = 60% $75 m preferred stock = 5% $ 525 m common equity = 35% ttl current asset = $ 1.5b...

‘I Have Had a Religious Experience’ Explain What This Means to the Believer (30 Marks)

...this stage. A religious experience is a non-empirical event in which a person can gain knowledge and understanding, they come in a range of forms including, visions, conversion and mystical experiences. They are spontaneous events in which it can be voluntary or not. They are always unique to the individual experiencing it and is always a positive event and they have a religious element to them. A believer can have a vision a vision is an image or event in which there is a message and are always non-empirical, this could mean a number of different things depending on the believer however most are numinous this is what Otto described as a feeling of fear and fascination. A vision could gain understanding, an example of this is Julian of Norwich who determined that God is a mother she had this feeling of sudden understanding this can also be described noetic quality. An effect on the believer could also be that it reinforces faith, for example in Genesis Jacob has an imaginary vision in which he sees a stairway to heaven with angels ascending and descending and at the top sat God, this reinforced his belief and when he awoke he felt God’s presence in the place. A result of a vision could also be a social influence, this could be by discovering a healing spring such as St Bernadette who had 18 corporeal visions in which she saw the Virgin Mary who told her to dig and she found a healing spring, this had huge impacts to Lourdes bringing in hundreds of pilgrims.

Julian Laws

...Julius Caesar’s rise to power was implemented by a series of strategic sometimes risk taking moves. He was a smart and savvy businessman who played his cards carefully and was elected to Consul of Rome in 59 B.C through his factio with Pompey and Crassus. His first order of business was fulfill his obligations to Pompey by initiating the land bill; this bill allowed the settlement of Pompey’s veterans to the Centuriate Assembly. After much deliberation and vetoing it was passed and put into order, this was the key bill that allowed Caesar to carry out his entire legislative package with efficiency and came to be known at the “Julian Laws”. The first order of business was to distribution of Campanian public lands among 20,000 needy citizens, the only obligation was that they were to have a minimum of three children. This was important to Romans because it allowed the poor and suffering to obtain and finally own their own land, it also insured that the Roman population would remain strong for generation to come. The law en bloc ratified all of Pompey’s settlements in the East. A law to help ease the treasury in Rome, Caesar remitted 1/3 of the payments that the tax collectors of Asia. Julian’s Laws were also favorable to Caesar, a bill was passed in legislature through a tribune that allowed him to be proconsular imperium for five years over the provinces of Cisalpine Gual and Illyricum. The law also gave Caesar command of three legions in Aquileia. This law allowed Caesar......
