Examine how Miller creates dramatic tension in the Ã¢â¬Ëyellow birdÃ¢â¬â¢ scene of The Crucible and consider how an audience might react Arthur MillerÃ¢â¬â¢s play, Ã¢â¬ËThe CrucibleÃ¢â¬â¢, is set in Massachusetts in 1692, where mass hysteria led to the Salem witchcraft trials. The same kind of situation occurred in the1950s resulting in the Anti-Communist frenzy of that time known as McCarthyism. In my essay I intend to examine how Miller creates tension in the Yellow Bird scene by using dramatic effects to engage the audience in the play and keep them engrossed, involved and on the edge of their seats. At the beginning of act three, the mood is set by the stage directions and descriptions. It says, Ã¢â¬Å"the room is empty but for sunlight pouring in through two high windows in the black wall. Ã¢â¬ It gives the impression of solemnity and depression, and also makes the small room seem claustrophobic so the girls have nowhere to escape. This reflects the stifling society and the situation that the girls have got themselves into. The scene starts after Elizabeth has just lied to the court in order to protect her husband, which is a quiet scene. When the court starts accusing the Proctors, Hale stands up and shifts the blame on to Abigail, as he is the only person except for John Proctor who can see what is going on, apart from the audience who would now start to become a little frustrated. Abigail then creates a diversion by screaming and looking up towards the rafters. The stage directions say, Ã¢â¬Å"with a weird, wild, chilling cry, screams up to the ceiling. Ã¢â¬ She knows that she is in danger of the truth being exposed and tries to divert the attention from herself. Everyone is now staring at Abigail, the characters and audience not knowing what is going on. Gradually, the other girls join in as they understand what Abigail is doing and they put on a very convincing act to Danforth and the audience, which is very frustrating, as we know that she is guilty and now trying to get away with it. A yellow bird is mentioned and the girls pretend that they can see it on the beams and behind the rafters, while Proctor shouts that there is no yellow bird. Abigail starts to talk to the bird, to ask why it has come, to keep up the pretence of the dramatic situation. MaryÃ¢â¬â¢s name is mentioned, Abigail pretending that Mary is possessing the yellow bird as the devil and she screams, Ã¢â¬Å"My face? My faceÃ¢â¬ to the ceiling, making it seem that she is the victim. Mary immediately springs to her feet and protests in shock, pleading Abigail to stop with the deception and to tell the truth. Abigail says that she cannot stop because it is GodÃ¢â¬â¢s work that she does and this creates even more frustration and hatred towards Abigail from the audience because we know that Mary is innocent and Abigail is such a convincing liar. The other girls pick on the a trance and Mary gets more and more agitated as she cannot defend herself against the large cluster of girls in hysteria. They act like bullies, ganging up on her because she is weak and the tension builds up, as Mary gets more and more distressed. The girls start mimicking Mary, which is a typical playground-bullying device, which is guaranteed to undermine her. Abigail targeted her as she chose to confess and she will do anything to get her way, as she is frightened that Mary would reveal the truth. They then advance further to imitating MaryÃ¢â¬â¢s actions Ã¢â¬â stamping feet and shaking fists, strengthening the tension, and maddening the audience even more with aggravation. When the other girls copy Mary WarrenÃ¢â¬â¢s actions, there is a lot of movement involved, which intensifies the frustration that the audience are feeling and the girls cannot go back on their decision to follow Abigail as they are all trapped in their own deceit. The audience are unsure whether Mary will give in or not as she is so weak and we already know how manipulating Abigail is. Mary protests and eventually weakens and starts whimpering like a wounded animal as she is overwhelmed by the conviction that she was being possessed by the devil in the form of the yellow bird Abigail conjured up. Danforth bullies Mary into speaking, Ã¢â¬Å"Speak! Will you speak! Ã¢â¬ and Proctor and Hale try to reveal the truth as the voice of sense. The whole scene climaxes with Mary out screaming all the other girls in pure desperation of them imitating her. This makes all the girls stop in astonishment creating a silence, which contrasts the noisiness with the quietness. Mary goes over to Abigail, who gives a look of triumph, as she finally succeeds in what she set out to do, by manipulating the situation to her advantage. Proctor loses his temper as Mary sides with the other girls in order to get herself out of the troubling situation and she claims John Proctor is the Ã¢â¬ËDevils ManÃ¢â¬â¢. The audience are in dismay, as we know that Proctor is one of the only decent men and that he is in fact innocent. The scene ends with Proctor losing his temper and chaos starts as Hale tries to make Danforth see sense that Proctor is blameless and Abigail is the malicious one. Hale leaves the court and the scene ends with Danforth shouting to him to come back, leaving a cliffhanger into Act 4. Danforth became hysterical towards the end as a result of the chaos occurring. The continued action through the scene keeps the audience on the edges of their seats and feeling like they are part of the play, which keeps them interested and involved, because they are feeling the emotion and distress as Proctor and Hale are so they feel as though they are going through the dramatic situation with them. The vast amount of action keeps the scene moving and there is always something happening as when ever the situation is diverted, Abigail steps in and takes the Yellow bird to another level. The short, sharp sentences during the scene also contribute largely to the tension building up and everyone is cutting over each otherÃ¢â¬â¢s sentences, which creates the idea of more chaotic occurrence. The negative words that are used by Abigail and against her create a negative atmosphere, for example. Ã¢â¬Å"I cannot stop! She sees nothing, mustnÃ¢â¬â¢t, never, donÃ¢â¬â¢t donÃ¢â¬â¢t. Ã¢â¬ Also John Proctor makes references to biblical allusions to stick with religion on the good side to help him get people to believe his innocence, Ã¢â¬Å"God damns all liarsÃ¢â¬ , and Ã¢â¬Å"Angel RaphaelÃ¢â¬ even though he is the one person least likely to be involved in organised religion. Watching this scene made me frustrated and agitated as the situation becomes so out of hand as Abigail puts on such a brilliant act to ensure that the attention is not on Proctor and Hale who are trying to reveal that she was behind all the accusations right from the beginning. This is also how I feel an audience would react as I reacted in that way every time Abigail took the situation to another level and manipulating everyone until she reaches her target of getting Mary Warren on her side and against John Proctor. I really enjoyed the play even though it was a sad ending.

There is a major divide between two political parties, that has shaped the modern government today. One fights for a strong central government while the other wants a small central government and strong military. These two differences in ideals have always been a powerful movement throughout the American history. Even as the Constitution was ratified on the 21st of June in 1788, federalists, and antifederalists fought against the opponentÃ¢â¬â¢s ideals. One side wanted the new country to have a strong centralized government (federalists), and the other side (antifederalists) believed in a smaller central government, and state sovereignty. Many states didnÃ¢â¬â¢t ratify the Constitution unless a Ã¢â¬Å"Bill of RightsÃ¢â¬ was added guaranteeing unalienable rights the new federal government cannot take away. Two documents that were written during the time of the ratification of the Constitution: The Federalist Papers: No 45 , and Farewell Address provide a basis of ideals that t he new republic had to face. One provides new advantages that the new Constitution provides, and the other addresses potential threats that may arise in the latter future. These products show the radical ideas adopted from the enlightenment era, being put in place as the experiment of the United States.

As a social worker an individual must understand that diversity characterize and shape human experience. In diversity the key words that a social worker should pay attention to is cultural awareness, self-awareness, ethno-conscious practice and sensitivity. Having cultural awareness is being aware of individualÃ¢â¬â¢s cultural and values. Self-awareness is being aware of personal biases and values when working with diverse groups. Ethno-conscious practice is being concern with social justice and equality. Sensitivity is understanding the difference in assessment, intervention and evaluation when working with diverse groups.

Ronald McDonald House Charities I chose to do my I-search paper on Ronald McDonald House Charities because I have a personal interest in this charity. My interest comes from the birth of my first grandchild. My son and daughter-in-law learned that their child would be born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. The doctorÃ¢â¬â¢s explained that one in twenty-seven hundred babies are born with this. CDH is where there is a hole in the diaphragm and as the baby develops its organs, such as stomach spleen, intestines, and liver move up into the chest cavity putting pressure on the lungs. This causes the lungs to be under developed. They were told that the baby would be hospitalized for about three months.

It was a large four story house with a huge backyard that had a privacy fence around it.

The kitchen is huge with tables at both ends and counters on both side walls with sinks and dishwashers, coffee makers, toasters, and microwaves. In the middle is a huge island with stools on both ends and stoves on both sides of the island. There are always two or three bowls on the island filled with quick snacks. There is a huge deck off of the kitchen with a gas grill and tables and chairs. There is a quiet room off of the kitchen, it consists of a real fireplace and a computer, and it is so much like a home living-room.

For instance, by returning low quality items to a provider, presenting stricter wellbeing and security strategies or managing troubled staff (Jorge, Frascara, 60) The problem originated from poor working personnel who made the product very poor. Poor training of employees brought this about. They did not consider training the customers first before letting them into the manufactory. For the company to recover from this, it has to do the following: It should be set up to state This does not add up to an affirmation of blame but rather will show that one consider the obligations important. It can likewise defuse a circumstance before it escapes on hand. Knowing about the incredible speed at which data spreads, particularly by means of long-range informal communication locales, and make fast move to counter awful news (Paul, 30). This would enhance your technique by looking to different organizations who have effectively dealt with a comparable emergency. Keeping individuals educated. Remaining noiseless about one circumstance is not probably going to help anyone, so keep your representatives, clients and providers up and coming. This will profit everybody by clearing up any misguided judgments about your company's situation (Kumu, 20). Neutralize mistakes. For instance, in the event that you know about a Twitter battle against you, 'tweet' your rendition of the story. Contact editors if off base data is distributed, and utilize one particular site and web-based social networking nearness to disperse misinterpretations. 'No remarks' infers you are concealing something. Assign a representative and guarantee the majority of your staff realizes that they should guide media enquiries to that individual. This ought to be some person who can remain quiet even with weight and potentially clumsy inquiries (Jamieson, 57). Offer a composed explanation if it is proper. Ask what due dates writers face and attempt in any event to offer a holding proclamation until the point that a more full clarification is prepared. Comprehend the media's requirement for a story. You might have the capacity to divert awful attention by pointing out a greater story somewhere else. You could likewise balance terrible attention by pointing out, for instance, what number of fulfilled clients you have. Consider employing a PR firm. Because of genuine catastrophe for an instance a flawed item that could be perilous, a representative claim, or even a casualty - you may require proficient offer assistance. At the point when the tidy has settled, audit all occurrences and consider ways you could have acted distinctively which would have prompted a superior result (Kenneth, Louis, 40) Reconstruct your company's notoriety by creating great PR For instance, through supporting philanthropy or advancing positive news stories. Fabricate relations with writers, so if there is a 'next time' they will have some earlier comprehension of you and your business. References Kenneth Louis Smith (2015).

During the past decade nurse theorists and educationalists have been attempting to establish nursing as an academic discipline Nurse education is rapidly moving away from a single scientific or technical colleges of nursing into institutes of higher education. In this paper I had the privilege to discuss how Nursing has evolved from being an occupation to being a profession and an academic discipline. According to the Collins English Dictionary, An occupation isa persons regular work or profession; job or principal activity, any activity on which time is spent by a person, the act of occupying or the state of being occupied, the control of a country by a foreign military and the period of time that a nation, place, or position is occupied. Occupation is an activity or task with which one occupies oneself; usually specifically the productive activity, service, trade, or craft for which one is regularly paid. One way to promote development is to clarify the professional role. We will write a custom essay sample on Nursing Has Evolved from Being an Occupation or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page The Oxford English Dictionary defines a profession as a paid occupation, especially one that involves prolonged training and a formal qualification and in its definition of a professional; the dictionary uses the words competent, skillful, or assured. Professional competence and skills are learnt through specialized training, maintained through continuing professional development and embedded in the notion of behaving ethically, in the interest of the client or patient, the public or society. Professions play a role in every part of human society, and we all rely on professionals at multiple points in our daily lives from dentists to teachers, from pension managers to careers advisors, from town planners to paramedics. We rely on professionals to be experts, to know what to do when we need them to, and to act in our best interests. Back in the nineteenth century, the professions were seen to be law, religion, and medicine. Nowadays, the number of professions is ever-increasing, as occupations become more specialized in nature and more professionalized in terms of requiring certain standards of initial and ongoing education so that anything from automotive technicians to web designers can be defined as professionals. The words occupation and profession are interchangeable. Profession and occupation are almost the same, with only minor differences between them. The difference between occupation and profession can be stated with a simple example: Designing a building would be called a profession, whereas, constructing a building is an occupation. A profession needs extensive training and specialized knowledge. On the other hand, an occupation does not need any extensive training. A person with an occupation need not have specialized knowledge of his trade. A profession can be called an occupation when a person is paid for his particular skills, and his deep knowledge. Doctors, engineers, advocates, journalists, scientists, and many others, fall under the professional category. On the other hand, persons engaged in an occupation are not paid for their knowledge, but only for what they produce. Drivers, clerks and technicians fall under the category of occupation. Unlike a person engaged in an occupation, a professional has to undergo higher education. It is noticeable that a profession tends to be autonomous. When considering responsibilities, a profession demands that the responsibility lies with the individual. Moreover, only a professional will be able to assess fellow professionals. In regards to an occupation, no one has autonomous power; he or she is supervised by another person. Moreover, any person can make assessments, as this type of work does not require high degrees of knowledge and skill. Well, professionals enjoy a higher social status than a person engaged in an occupation. Another difference that can be seen between profession and occupation is that the former is guided through certain ethical codes, and is regulated by a certain statute. The term discipline originates from the Latin words discipulus, whichmeans pupil, and disciplina, which means teaching (noun). Related to it is also the word disciple as in the disciples of Jesus. A dictionary definition will give a whole range of quite different meanings of the term from training to submission to an authority to the control and self-control of behavior. As a verb it means training someone to follow a rigorous set of instructions, but also punishing and enforcing obedience. The medical meaning of discipline is a medical regimen imposed by a doctor on a patient to the patientÃ¢â¬â¢s benefit. It follows that the academic discipline can be seen as a form of specific and rigorous scientific training that will turn out practitioners who have been disciplined by their discipline for their own ood. In addition, discipline also means policing certain behaviors or ways of thinking. Individuals who have deviated from their discipline can be brought back in line or excluded. As a result, there is an important moral dimension to discipline that defines how people should behave or think. As previously mentioned, the term academic discipline certainly incorporates many el ements of the meaning of discipline. At the same time, it has also become a technical term for the organization of learning and the systematic production of new knowledge. Often disciplines are identified with taught subjects, but clearly not every subject taught at university can be called a discipline. There is more to disciplines than the fact that something is a subject taught in an academic setting. In fact, there is a whole list of criteria and characteristics, which indicate whether a subject is indeed a distinct discipline. A general list of characteristics would include disciplines have a particular object of research (e. g. aw, society, politics), though the object of research maybe shared with another discipline, disciplines have a body of accumulated specialist knowledge referring to their object of research, which is specific to them and not generally shared with another discipline, disciplines have theories and concepts that can organizethe accumulated specialist knowledge effectively, disciplines use specific terminologies or a specific technical language adjusted to their research object, disciplines have developed specific research met hods according to their specific research requirements and maybe most crucially, disciplines must have some institutional manifestation in the form of subjects taught at universities or colleges, respective academic departments and professional associations connected to it. Only through institutionalization are disciplines able to reproduce themselves from one generation to the next by means of specific educational preparation. A new discipline is therefore usually founded by the way of creating a professional leader devoted to it at an established university. Some disciplines would be considered to be more useful, more rigorous, more difficult, or more important than others. Nurses have specialized education and training validated by professional licensure. Nurses have a code of ethics and established practice standards, they are bound to adhere to, a violation of which can result in their license being revoked or sanctioned. They have their own body of ongoing research that shapes and governs our practice. Nurses work autonomously within their scope of practice. They formulate and carry out their own plan of care for clients when applicable; they apply judgment, use critical thinking skills, and make nursing diagnoses. Nurses use their specialized knowledge, experience, and skill set to initiate live-saving measures, improve and promote the health and well-being of the planet, and ease pain, suffering, and loss. They are all united in that common mission regardless of where they work, their position title, or whether they are employed, unemployed, or self-employed. Nursing has evolved from being an occupation to being a profession and an academic discipline. Nursing is variously described as a profession, a discipline, an occupation. The meanings assigned to such words and the expectations, demands, and responsibilities that each reveals to and or exacts from those privileged to call themselves registered nurse provides a splendid arena for viewing the struggle of nursing as an intellectual endeavor embedded in its own distinctive knowledge base, experiences, purposes, and values. Currently, pressure exerted within and without nursing to adopt the self-limiting potential and subordinated position that a professional discipline orientation and applied degree education talk on nursing is increasing. Nurses roles and mission, ideals, and ethical and practice standards are one a profession and also the attributes of an academic discipline.
