Entitlement Programs in the United States today are much like Robin Hood of old. Taking money from those who have and giving it to those who have none. But are these programs good? In order to fully understand this question, one must first understand what an entitlement program is. An entitlement program can be defined as a governmental mechanism where public funds are given to people because they meet some kind of requirement. There has been a political firestorm over entitlement programs in the…
Oliver’s “Sleeping in the Forest” suggests that the relationship an individual has with the environment is essential to the internal landscape. Whereas, Lower Lusatia’s “Little Red Hood” demonstrates how an external landscape can harm an individuals identity. The individuals in both “Sleeping in the Forest” and “Little Red Hood” see the beauty of nature, gain a sense of belonging, and become reborn. This demonstrates how the space an individual surrounds themselves with is important, as the internal landscape…

Lying with Wolves
Fairy tales have always been designed to entertain as well as teach the essential morals of good vs. evil. One classic tale that epitomizes this theme is Little Red Riding Hood. This fairytale has endured different versions and translations over hundreds of years primarily as a children’s story. It’s a classic evil vs. innocence fairytale that’s theme is highlighted with graphic imagery and underlying symbolism. The primary…
The play opens during the day time. Jack and Red Riding Hood are hiding in the bushes outside a wolf’s home.
RH: [with a hushed voice] Look, here he comes. Are you ready?
JACK: I’m not so sure about this Red. I mean how do we even know it’s the right wolf?
RH: [Irritated] We’ve gone through this a million times. It’s not wrong to beat up the bad guys. Somebody needs to teach them a lesson. Somebody needs to stand up against these bullies. The pigs said the wolf had a white patch of hair on his…
Goldilocks and the 3 bears, originally written by Robert Southey, is a book about a girl and 3 bears. Little Red Riding Hood, written by Charles Perrault, is a story where a wolf impersonates a girl’s grandmother. These are both very good stories and are well written. There are some similarities and differences of these two great stories in the way these two girls act. Some of their decisions are good and some are bad, so let’s look at their decisions.
Goldilocks and the 3 bears is an interesting…

Case Study 10
Robin Hood and his Band of Merry Men had a successful first year. With new recruits pouring in
from the furthest outreaches of England, Robin had met his objective of strengthening in number.
Although he was satisfied with the size of the organization, he has realized necessary
preparations had not been made to accommodate the now over abundance of members of his
organization. Many challenges now face Robin such as a lack of provisions and lack of funds to…

A Conspiracy Theory
“The Little Red Riding Hood” might at first glance appear as a well-meaning morality tale stressing the importance of using caution and of not being fooled by “wolves that come in sheep's clothing.” On closer examination, however, the version authored by an anonymous writer reveals values that promote traditional but oppressive ways of viewing the world. Nestled within “The Little Red Riding Hood” lie messages…
In the Robin Hood case, we can easily apply the principles of a business organization. Robin was the CEO of the Merrymen. He made all important decisions and a few lieutenants serve in roles that have been delegated such as information gathering, discipline, finances and provisioning. These make up the top management in the organization. This is associated with the Fayolism theory developed by Henri Fayol who proposed that managers perform particular functions for the growth and success of the organization…
Ever since I’ve owned a car, I have always changed my own oil. My father, who worked as a mechanic on the side, learned how to work on cars from his dad. So naturally, when I was old enough he decided to teach me how to work on my car. One of the first lessons in do-it-yourself car maintenance is how to change the motor oil. A simple process that only requires a few tools, and is an easy way to saves money. All while having a sense of accomplishment once finished.
First, you must get the proper…
