Greek influence on the Western world
It is always important to look to the past in order to move toward the future. This was done in
the formation of Western Society, and more specifically the formation of American society. The Greek
culture defiantly served as a huge frame of reference for many aspects of Western life today.
Including our government, architecture, math and the arts. Ancient Greek culture served as a very
broad base for which our society was built upon.
To start off with Ancient Greece had many developments in political science. During the age of
Pericles, the ideal form of government was

What is Greece?: Significance of Music within the Ancient Greek Culture
What is Greece? This questions can be answered in a variety of areas. The history of music in Greece plays a significant role in the history of the country. Because music played a integral role in the daily lives of the Ancient Greek citizens, it is evident that music has played a role in shaping the culture into what it is today. We live in a society where we are completely devoted and immersed in music. Whether it be a simple tune we hear on a radio or the

Athena for her help in defeating the Persians. Lord Elgin removed the relics from the temple as a way of preserving them. After all they have been described as being among the greatest of all Greek art. After the battle between the Turks and the Venetians the inside of the Parthenon had been blown out and “the residents helped themselves to the ancient marble and used it for private building material” (Babcock, p82). It is clear that if the sculptures had not been removed to Brittan they probably would have perished by now through natural elements or vandalism. The artifacts helps to culturally link Greece with other great civilizations as wells display the contributions that ancient Greece has made in helping in the development of other cultural achievements in Rome, Europe and Asia, and other parts of the world.

I firmly believe the statues should remain in Britain, the opposition might claim that the Greeks have a cultural right to them. But as Appiah argued in chapter 7, the Greeks of the 21st century are no culturally similar to the ancient Greeks than someone in the U.S. They are the descendents of the ancient Greeks after all, but that does not take history into account. The people of Greece only exist today as a result of the past good or bad. Ancient Greece is known for its militant and philosophical way of life; they gained large amounts of wealth from war; should the current Greeks return

Ancient Egypt or announcing the winners of the Olympics in ancient Greece. In the Middle Ages, pigeon post has grown rapidly as it became a favorable form of communication. However, pigeons are later used for military purposes, especially in the Franco-Prussian War which brewed from 1870-1871 and the World Wars.
Pigeons can fly for a thousand miles, while humans and horses cannot fly at all. Flying gives them an upper hand because they can see things from an elevated field of view. Also, pigeons are usually faster than horses so they can be an ancient equivalent to E-mail. Since pigeons can be ordered to fly to one place and another, they are able to cross the borders and send mail and parcels to other people living in other parts of the world, therefore spreading out. Also, if a country had received a mail sent via pigeon post but does not have that system, they might persuade the government to have that system, and if they did, it will spread out even more.

In ancient Greece and Rome many gods and goddesses were worshiped, a famous god that the Greek and Romans worshiped was the goddess Aphrodite. Aphrodite was the great Olympian, goddess of beauty, love and pleasure and procreation. Another famous god during the Greek and Roman times was Eros, the god of love. The Romans and the Greeks often used the word “Eros” as a way to express a sexual desire. The Romans and Greeks also expressed sexuality through their art, because they loved and admired the human body. Because of the Greek and Romans admiration of the human body is why their statues were usually without clothing

Many elements affected the social economic in the Renaissance. Everything began with the humanist as they revived an interest in ancient Greece and Rome to increase their understanding of their own times. During the process of this time period the society shifts from agriculture to urban in which trade is inter-regional and growing fast. The growth of trade helped the merchants to become powerful money leaders and developed a new middle class. In one hand the Renaissance effected individual scholars, writers, artists, wealth merchants and ruler could patronize the arts.

The temple of Hera, also called the Haraion, is one of the first monumental temples in Greece. It is located in the north-west corner of the blessed area of the Altis, on the south slopes of Kronios hill, secured by a powerful terrace wall. It was devoted to the Olympian sanctuary by the people of Skillous, which is an ancient city of Eleia. It has been said that the temple was built approximately eight years after Oxylos rose to the throne of Elis, which was c. 1096 BC, but in reality it is much later. Around 650 BC, the first Heraion was built, it was a small Doric temple with merely a cella and pronaos. Later in 600 BC, the opisthodomos and ptero were added. However, the theory that the

Rain Rain Go Away
"Rain Rain Go Away" is a popular English language nursery rhyme. Similar rhymes can be found in many societies, including ancient Greece. The modern English language rhyme can be dated to at least to the 17th century when James Howell in his collection of proverbs noted Rain rain go to Spain: faire weather come again.
A version very similar to the modern version was noted by John Aubrey in 1687 as used by "little children" to "charm away the Rain...":

famous theorem in geometry, the 'Pythagoras Theorem'. His mentors were Thales, Pherekydes and Anaximander, who inspired him to pursue mathematics and astronomy. Pythagoras also made important discoveries in music, astronomy and medicine. He accepted priesthood and performed the rites that were required in order to enter one of the temples in Egypt, known as Diospolis. He set up a brotherhood with some of his followers, who practiced his way of life and pursued his religious ideologies. He became one of the most distinguished teachers of religion in ancient Greece.

For most people the exchange of goods occurred through social relationships. There were also traders who bartered in the marketplaces. In Ancient Greece, where the present English word 'economy' originated, many people were bond slaves of the freeholders. Economic discussion was driven by scarcity.

The issue of nationalism is particularly complicated in a region like the Balkans due to its history and geography. The alluvial plains along the river basins and maritime coastlands fostered contacts with both the east and west, whilst communities in the rugged terrain of the Dinaric highlands have had a tendency toward cultural isolationism. Consequently, the Balkans has always been politically and culturally heterogeneous. However, the

psychology of wellbeing has roots going to ancient Greece and Rome with the belief that body and mind were separate. Descartes suggested that the body and mind, though separate, interact at the pineal gland. Although the biomedical model was powerful in explaining mental and physical illness, psychosocial variables remained largely ignored. Modern-day applications derived from general systems theory and biopsychosocial model have shown improvements in preventative health and recovery from chronic diseases.

Toynbee was a leading analyst of developments in the Middle East. His support for Greece and hostility to the Turks during the World War had gained him an appointment to the Koraes Chair of Modern Greek and Byzantine History at the University of London. However, after the war he changed to a pro-Turkish position, accusing Greece's military government in occupied Turkish territory of atrocities and massacres. This earned him the enmity of the wealthy Greeks who had endowed the chair, and in 1924 he was forced to resign the position. His stance during World War I reflected less sympathy for the Arab

Aristocracy (Greek ἀριστοκρατία aristokratía, from ἄριστος aristos "excellent," and κράτος kratos "power") is a form of government in which a few elite citizens rule. The term derives from the Greek aristokratia, meaning "rule of the best". In origin in Ancient Greece, it was conceived of as rule by the best qualified citizens, and contrasted with monarchy. In later times, aristocracy was usually seen as rule by a privileged group (the aristocratic class), and contrasted withdemocracy.

Role of Sports in Society
A. Description of the issue
The role of sport in society has been debated for many decades. Sport is a part of society as both an educational fixture and an entertainment enterprise. Sport forms part of human and social development; it can contribute to social cohesion, tolerance and integration and is an effective channel for physical and socio-economic development. As a universal language, sport can be a powerful medium for social and economic change: it can be utilized to bridge cultural gaps, resolve conflict and educate people in ways that very few activities can. The goal of the Sports Council is to examine the proposition that sport can be a powerful agent

In the recent years, there has been a tendency of multi-cultural teams becoming very common. This is because cross border mobility has become much easier and the number of people travelling from one nation to another has grown significantly (Aswathppa, 2010).

For some, once they have reached a goal in one market they make decisions to venture out into other markets. In the world of business, that venturing out is called diversifying the company. According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary, to diversify is “to increase the variety of the products of; or to engage in varied operations.” (Merriam-Webster, 2012) In a business, when you produce a variety of goods or invest in different markets it is a strategy that provides a back-up in the event that one good or investment goes south.

What is Honor?
My understanding of the term honor.
Honor is defined as a source of credit or distinction, and is associated with reverence, dignity, reputation, good name and a good sense of what is morally correct. The key part to honor is having respect for others and for you; the two must act together because without both, there is nothing. I strongly believe that reputation is hard to gain and easily lost. Think about this, every day thousands of planes fly somewhere and there is never any news about a successful landing, but if any of those flights crash, it is all over the news.

Ethical Decision Making
Understanding ethics and utilizing ethical business practices are key to the success in modern business. Traditional business organizations must take into consideration many more aspects of business today, than in the past when the focus was primarily on profits and making money for the shareholders. These ethical principles also influence non-profit and government organizations as well, taking into account the same ethical considerations that for profit organizations deal with. The modern concept of ethical organizations takes into account many issues, some of which include:
• corporate social responsibility
