Answer All 6 Questions Below;
Different Buddhist Traditions
Smith identifies Theravadian Buddhism as closest to the original form associated with the Buddha. What then explains the development of Mahayana and/or Vajrayana?
Distinguishing Buddhism From Hinduism
How does Buddhism part ways from Hinduism, most fundamentally?
Moksha And Nirvana
Should moksha be distinguished from nirvana? How?
Intellectualism and Myth
How does Armstrong’s account of Paleolithic myth differ from the “intellectualism” of theorists such as Tylor and Frazer?
The Point of the Legends
The details of Gautama’s life are entirely enshrouded in legend, and legend characteristically heavy with tendentious interpretation. Thus, for instance, the Four Passing Sights are rather spectacular, if somewhat obvious interpolations of doctrine. Similarly one might wonder the significance of the Gautama’s activities between the Great Going Forth and the Awakening. What’s the point, would you say?
Harris and Eastern Religions
Apparently Sam Harris’ critique of religion is meant to be more harshly directed toward Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, than against Hinduism and Buddhism, true? How do you account for the fact that he seems so much more sympathetic to those “Eastern” religions, than to the great ‘Western” monotheisms
Nine Theories of Religion by Daniel L. Pals(earlier edition is “Eight Theories” also acceptable.)
The World’s Religions: Our Great Wisdom Traditions by Huston Smith
The End of Faith by Sam Harris
A Short History of Myth by Karen Armstrong

Create a media strategy to help realign the client’s public image. Business Finance Assignment Help
Task 2: Analysis/Strategy Presentation
In order to successfully complete this activity:
- Review what we’ve discussed about media strategy and media analysis last week.
- Select a “celebrity in crisis” to work for in this job simulation.
- Perform a media analysis of the client’s image after their most recent crisis.
- Create a media strategy to help realign the client’s public image.
- Present the analysis and strategy using a web based presentation tool.
This is the first of three job simulation projects you will complete during this course. These projects are meant to simulate some of the basic types of task you could face in the media communications industry.
For this project, imagine that you have been contracted to deliver a media analysis and strategy report to a high profile client. In this job simulation, your hypothetical client is a real “celebrity in crisis.”
You are free to select any high profile celebrity, actor, sports star, or musician who made a huge, image altering, public blunder in the last year or two. Use search engines or your own knowledge of current events to select a “celebrity in crisis” who made a costly public mistake. This will be the client you are working for. Examples might include Miley Cyrus dancing in the Grammys or Jameis Winston stealing crab legs.
People who make a living due to their high profile image pay other people to help them protect it. When embarrassing and damaging mistakes are made public, these “celebrities in crisis” work hard to control the story and spin the media buzz in their favor. It is possible to lose millions of dollars from big mistakes and save millions of dollars with clever media strategies.
Research the client that you choose. Learn as much as you can about their public image before the crisis occurred. Then research the crisis itself, and finally, the aftermath. This will give you the material you need to form the media analysis.
Then, based on what you learned about the crisis, create a media strategy that will help alter/fix/correct the public’s opinion of your client. You can’t change who your client is, but as a media strategist, you can suggest different approaches to changing how the public and the media perceive them.
Using PowToons, Prezi, SoundCloud, or a video recorder, create a 3-5 minute presentation that (1) presents your media analysis of “where the client is” because of the crisis and (2) your media strategy for fixing the damage done to the client’s public image. This presentation can take almost any form as long as the analysis and strategy are clearly communicated to the client.
In most cases a media analysis and strategy proposal is a written document. In this case your client is asking you to take your ideas and boil them down to the important points and share them in a 3-5 minute audio/videoor audio-only presentation.

And thus he continued on, while my color came and went several times with indignation to hear our noble country, the mistress of arts and arms, the scourge of France, the arbitress of Europe, the seat of virtue, piety, honor, and truth, the pride and envy of the world, so contemptuously treated…”
“The King was struck with horror at the description I had given of those terrible engines and the proposal I had made.”
“He was perfectly astonished with the historical account I gave him of our affairs during the last century, protesting it was only a heap of conspiracies, rebellions, murders, massacres, revolutions, banishments, the very worst effects that avarice, faction, hypocrisy, perfidiousness, cruelty, rage, madness, hatred, envy, lust, malice, and ambition could produce.”
“He acted every part of an orator; and I could observe many periods of threatening and others of promises, pity, and kindness.”
Which passage best describes the cause of six bloody revolutions among the Liliputians?

“However, they have now equipped a numerous fleet and are just preparing to make a descent upon us…”
“It is computed that eleven thousand persons have, at several times, suffered death rather than submit to break their eggs at the smaller end.”
“Now, in the midst of these intestine disquiets, we are threatened with an invasion from the island of Blefuscu…”
How do the Lilliputians explain Gulliver’s sudden appearance in their kingdom?
”But, I confess, that after I had been a little too copious in talking of my own beloved country…”
“Besides, our histories of six thousand moons make no mention of any other regions than the two great empires of Lilliput and Blefuscu…”
“His most sublime Majesty proposeth to the Man-Mountain, lately arrived at our celestial dominions, the following articles, which by a solemn oath he shall be obliged to perform.”
“Our philosophers are in much doubt and would rather conjecture that you dropped from the moon or one of the stars.”

“There have been two struggling parties in this empire…from the high and low heels of their shoes, by which they distinguish themselves.”
“These civil commotions were constantly fomented by the monarchs of Blefuscu…”
“This prince took a pleasure in conversing with me, inquiring into the manners, religion, laws, government, and learning of Europe; wherein I gave him the best account I was able.”
“And yet,” said he, “I dare engage, those creatures have their titles and distinctions of honor…”
Which passage contains an allusion to historical events that were taking place at the time?
“I lay down on the grass, which was very short and soft, where I slept sounder than ever I remember to have done in my life, and, as I reckoned, above nine hours…”
“And besides, they shot another flight into the air, as we do bombs in Europe.”
“I had reason to believe I might be a match for the greatest armies they could bring against me…”
“Given at our Palace at Belfaborac the twelfth day of the ninety-first moon of our reign.”“Gulliver’s Travels” by Jonathan Swift

Anaphora work Humanities Assignment Help
Explain in two to three sentences each the meaning, effect, and effectiveness of the following chiasmus examples:
“I wasted time, and now time doth waste me,”—William Shakespeare, Richard II
“Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.”—John F. Kennedy, speech to the United Nations General Assembly
“Bad men live that they may eat and drink, whereas good men eat and drink that they may live.”—Socrates
Explain in two to three sentences each the meaning, effect, and effectiveness of the following anaphora examples:
“Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley’d and thunder’d;”—Lord Alfred Tennyson, from “The Charge of the Light Brigade”
“We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills.”—Winston Churchill, Speech to the House of Commons
“But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate – we cannot hallow – this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”—Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address
Now, it is your turn! Write a well-developed paragraph of at least 6–8 sentences in which your purpose is to move your audience to action or challenge them to think differently about something. Choose any topic that is school-appropriate, and use your diction and syntax to create either a humorous tone or serious tone. Use chiasmus and anaphora to help you achieve your purpose.
In a brief reflection, identify your purpose, your tone, and where you used chiasmus and anaphora. Discuss the effects you were hoping to achieve with each technique and comment on your effectiveness.

Role: Assistant Manager, Seattle Marriott Waterfront
Your Assignment: Using the A Plan Strategy, write a formal business letter formatted in full block style to Jill McCracken, Director of Sales and Marketing. Jill works for Natural Decoration, Inc. in Brewton, Alabama.
Scenario: You just received a phone call from Jill McCracken, who was a guest at your hotel last week. She attended a conference hosted by the Artificial Flower Association. This is the third year that the Association has hosted the conference in Seattle. During the call, Jill advised that she checked out without carefully reviewing her bill, so she didn’t realize that not only had she been charged for her use of the hotel’s Wi-Fi but also for a breakfast that she did not eat. As an attendee of the conference, she was entitled to the free use of internet, but apparently, she had clicked on the wrong connection option each time she used it. She has requested a refund of $84 for the Wi-Fi as well as $18.34 for the breakfast. You have checked your records and confirmed what she said.
BE CREATIVE! How would you respond to Jill to satisfy her needs and keep her as a future Marriott customer?
