A.1 I believe Bill Bailey would best served to use the two-factor theory of motivation in
order to support the merger between the Utah Symphony and the Utah Opera. The two-factor theory distinguishes between motivators and hygiene factors. Under this theory, motivators are considered to be challenging work, recognition, and responsibility which provide positive satisfaction within the job itself. Hygiene factors are status, job security, salary, fringe benefits, and working conditions. Hygiene factors do not provide a direct positive satisfaction, however, dissatisfaction results from their absence. The theory which was developed by Frederick Herzberg basically states that hygiene

and also repeated by the echo. The progression of notes in the main vocal line rise from a B flat to a D and descend down to a G sharp and when looking at the definition of a wail, it is a high pitch cry of grief and pain which can be interpreted as corresponding with the progression of notes. There is often dissonance within the progression such as in measure 302 where an F# diminished chord tonicizes a G minor chord. Also, in the chorus section of Carissimi’s piece, the chords tend to remain within the sharp system which brings out the pain and sadness that is held within the story of Jephte and having to sacrifice his only daughter.

means arts is a part of culture and have various forms in different societies, can be give different meanings by different people. By comparison the established theories and principles of science would hardly alter and always be applied to the whole world. So, arts is subjective and can promote people’s creativity and imagination.
Moreover, arts can enrich individual’s cultural life. This is because science and technology enhance the social productivity and enrich material wealth, only arts can satisfy their spiritual and emotional needs. For example, the Chinese traditional art forms Beijing Opera and cross-talk have been welcomed by lots of people and brought enjoyment of spirit to them

La Boheme presents consumption as a social commentary and features new characters to opera, street artist living with poverty and disease. The opera was fashioned from a book by Louis-Henri Murger, a young writer who also died of consumption (Morens, 2002). The heroine, Mimi, is based on Murger’s lover Lucile Louvet. A seamstress portrayed as a fevered beauty whose allure heightened by physical decline. Mimi falls for a poor poet named Rodolfo, her neighbor. He first loves her in return but then abandons her, fearing he cannot provide for her and possibly fearing contamination (Puccini, 1896, p. 3). Later in the opera Mimi is rejoined with Rodolfo and she dies beside him. In one of the

The poem starts with the model telling the reader that she is posing naked for the painting in which Georges is creating, ‘They call it Art’. The model mocks Georges and the art because we see that she doesn’t view his work with any interest. The ‘Art’ that she creates is very much different to Georges as her profession is prostitution, a profession that is not respected by the higher class. We see that her opinion again is not asked by others because ‘they’ told her that it was ‘art’. This shows

Ashley Reed was born on a warm Texas morning in June 1984. This blue eyed little girl was a huge surprise to everyone because they were all expecting a little boy. Named after an actress from a soap opera, this bundle of joy grew up as an only child, but shared a lot of time with cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Raised in the country, Reed had a passion for animals and getting dirty. There wasn’t anything that could stop this little tom- boy from jumping in a puddle of mud, climbing trees, or capturing wild horses.

musician. In 1893, a group of black artists, offended that the Chicago World’s Fair of that year had acknowledged black people only with a troop of Dahomeans performing “savage” dances, organized a “Colored American Day” concert within the fairgrounds. Cook played a leading role in bringing it about. The concert featured classical singing and poetry recitals and included excerpts from an Uncle Tom’s Cabin opera that Cook had composed. The opera is lost; if it had survived, it would provide a glimpse of the Bach-Beethoven-Brahms mind-set that Cook was about to leave behind.
The shift began when Cook moved to New York to study at the National Conservatory of Music under Antonín Dvorák. Dvorák

The sacraments efficacious signs of grace, by Christ and entrusted to the Church, by which divine life is distributed to us. The visible rites by which the sacraments are celebrated signify and make present the graces proper to each sacrament (McGrath). An important principle is that grace is received ex opera operato (Latin:”from the work done’), that is, irrespective of the virtue or those who direct to receive the sacraments. For this

An important aspect of entertainment is the audience, which turns a private recreation or leisure activity into entertainment. The audience may have a passive role, as in the case of persons watching a play, opera, television show, or film; or the audience role may be active, as in the case of games, where the participant/audience roles may be routinely reversed.

One of the main responsibilities of a jail is to give the officers the correct “Police Correspondence” courses. This is because these courses give the officers the effective basic training that they need to do things such as; Writing of Memoranda, Police Reports, and Civilian Letters. What needs to be done first is make sure that there are NO errors. This means in spelling, punctuation, price, and grammar. These should be thoroughly, and constantly, edited. Another thing is conciseness; this means it should be brief or limited in words. Although, concision does not mean deleting words that count just to make
