Comparing Monuments
A monument is a statue of famous or notable persons, building or a place that is made to keep alive the memory of people or events. Florida Capital building is a monument that has a rich history which began in 1824 with the creation of Tallahassee as the new capital city. The Integration Statue at Florida State University is celebrated for playing attribute to young men and women who contributed in making FSU rich in diversity.
The Historical Capitol is located in Tallahassee in Florida capital city, at the intersection of Apalachee Parkway. And the Integration Statue at Florida State University is it located on the oldest continuous site of higher education in the state of Florida. The visual elements that are found in the Historical Capitol are the 22 floors and a height of 345 feet. While the Integration Statue at Florida State University is a three figured statue of people standing and is approximately nine feet tall.
The Historical Capitol building has encouraged people to come because it contains a museum, which is always open to the public and has a great historical background. Nevertheless, the Statue at Florida State University encourages people from different background and country to join the university, because as elaborated it symbolizes social unity. Grandeur and permanence are coined when a material like a rock is used in a sculpture or building. This is because the rock is strong and elegant; on the other hand, it is smooth as glass in some places and also rough. Another thing that contributes to a building or sculpture permanence is that it is too heavy to be carried around and strong.
The difference between the Integration Statue at Florida State University consists of images of people on a circular brick pedestal and is established on the idea of beauty, bats and books. While the…...

Dr. King Monument Analysis

...standing and speaking does convey the great orator King was. It also aides our understanding of King as a leader, standing tall, passionate, and willing to fight for his rights. However, it lacks the specific important events that define King’s life. The sculpture chosen by the university does everything the pervious sculpture does but also provides those specific images that highlight King’s life. Dr. King will always be remembered for his “I have a dream” speech. The only piece which contains a direct quote and reference to the speech is the chosen one. We also forever remember King’s struggles, the physical pain, and his imprisonment. The chosen sculpture contains images relating to all of those obstacles King was able to overcome. This monument deepens our understanding of who King was as a person and also provides the key images will we forever associate with his life. This statues ability to entail all the details of King’s life made it the obvious choice for the university. Clearly, I believe the university made the correct decision. The chosen sculpture is the one which most completely represents our understanding of Dr. King. It provides everything the other pieces do and more. The four images on the sides simply put it head and shoulders above the rest due to its attention to detail. It is the only sculpture which clearly illustrates the struggles Dr. King had to overcome throughout his renowned life. This sculpture contains all the qualities of Dr. King which......

Comparing Classes

...Thesis: When choosing classes for college comparing and contrasting the classes is very helpful. Online class vs. Traditional class is a common decision many college students have to make. I. Location -Workplace -Home -School II. Interaction -Friends -Teacher -Discussion III. Accessibility -online -In Classroom Comparing online classes to traditional classes’ people generally pick traditional, because that’s all they have ever known. These days, there are many different ways to access higher education. One can enroll in a traditional program, attending classes and accessing educational resources on campus. Someone can also enroll in an all-online program, in which the majority of your schoolwork and communications are completed via the Internet. Or there's the in-between option: Blended learning environments that combine on-campus and online coursework. Online courses typically allow students to work together, which means that they can complete their coursework at the time and place of their choosing. This is often ideal for working students or single parents who need a flexible schedule. However, students who struggle to be self-motivated may find that they quickly fall behind (Cooper).Of course; the primary reason you're in class is to learn and develop new skills. For some students, this can be very difficult without the direct, face to face input of an instructor. If a person doesn't learn well from books and other written material one may......

Veteran Monument

...TO: Families of Fallen United States Military Service members and Corporate Sponsors FROM: Doris Straight, Marketing Director Military Veterans Foundation DATE: 11 November 2013 SUBJECT: Donations for Fallen Heroes Monument in Virginia As the marketing director and for a military veteran’s foundation I take great honor in representing our military here in Virginia. When providing marketing communications to our sponsors and military families to discuss getting sponsorship or donations to our organization it is important to look at demographics and psychographics in order to be able to target the correct audience. Demographics and psychographics affect the way consumers buy in to products. The demographics I am appealing to for our organization is location and age. There are a lot of Virginia residents that are have an affiliation with the military either by having served, serving now or as a retiree. Building this monument for Virginia residents gives them a symbol of something meaningful that honors their families and it is right outside their front door. Another demographic would be age. I am appealing to the age range of 15 years old and up. Fifteen year olds are in high school and some of them may be a part of their Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at their school. Some may be in the class just to get a credit but most times their parents or a family member served or is currently serving in the military. When dealing with psychographics I would try......

The Monuments Men, an Analysis

...Danny Meiselman Intro to Art 08/30/14 The Monuments Men: A Post Viewing Analysis The story of the Monuments men has been called the greatest treasure hunt in history. It is a story of a World War II platoon made up entirely of 7 art experts, who president Roosevelt assigned to be in charge of rescuing the countless priceless pieces of art stolen by the Nazis, and return them to their rightful owners or Museums. The president was convinced to do so by a man named Frank Stokes, who learned that Hitler was stealing are great works of art in order to store them in his personal museum. In the movie, Frank Stokes (George Clooney) is the leader of the troop they call the Monuments Men. He convinces President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to let him and his men try to save the thousands of years of culture that was at risk of being lost forever. His argument was that if you take away a culture’s greatest achievements, then that culture will be forgotten forever, and it will be as if it never existed. As Clooney elegantly puts it in the movie, “While we must win this war, we should also remember the high price that will be paid if the very foundation of modern society is destroyed.” It is the task of Stokes to recruit six more men, all museum curators and art historians, to accompany him in this dangerous mission across enemy lines. After he gets his team together, they are put through basic training with the rest of the infantry. When they were in training, they did not have......

I Am a Monument

...I am a type of structure that was explicitly created to commemorate a person or important event, or which has become important to a social group as a part of their remembrance of historic times or cultural heritage, or as an example of historic architecture. I am a 'monument' which is often applied to buildings or structures that are considered examples of important architectural and/or cultural heritage. In English the word "monumental" is often used in reference to something of extraordinary size and power, as in monumental sculpture, but also to mean simply anything made to commemorate the dead, as a funerary monument or other example of funerary art. I have been created for thousands of years, and are often the most durable and famous symbols of ancient civilizations. As societies became organized on a larger scale, we have become symbols of their civilizations. In more recent times, monumental structures such as the Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower have become iconic emblems of modern nation-states. The term monumentality relates to the symbolic status and physical presence of a monument. I am a major tourist attraction across the world. Slowly but surely, extreme weather is weakening me as well as my friends across the globe. Commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the remains of his cherished wife,I, the Taj Mahal stand on the southern bank of the Yamuna River in Agra, India.

Monument to the Heroes of the Air

...Monument to the Heroes of the Air The Aviators' Monument is located in the Aviators' Square, on Aviators’ Boulevard, Bucharest, Romania. It was built between 1930 and 1935 by the architect and sculptress Lidia Kotzebuie and by Iosif Fekete. The structure, 20 m high, is made up of bronze sculptures resting on an obelisk -shaped stone pedestal, which in turn stands atop four trapezoidal prisms linked to each other by arcs. Beneath this entire complex is a circular stone base. Attached to the top of the obelisk, which reaches 15 meters, is a 5-meter and 5-tones statue representing a flying man, with his wings outstretched. The folds of a shawl fall from his waist onto the obelisk. Three aviators, each in a different stage of flight attempt, are depicted around the base of the obelisk. On the pedestal are the aviators' insignia, helmets and equipments, as well as engraved plaques with the names of Romanian airmen who had crashed by the time the monument was built. These men died pursuing various goals: skill development, performance, adventure and fighting in First World War. In July 1927, the committee formed for the construction on the monument asked Kotzebuie to execute a model with the size of one quarter from the overall dimensions of the planned monument. In 1930, with the help of the Air Force Ministry, material from Argeş River was brought to the Malaxa Factory, where the statue was to be produced. There, in May 1930, in the architect’s......

...Your goal is to write an essay showing how two subjects are either similar or different (not both). When comparing subjects, show how they are similar. When contrasting them, show how they are different. In a comparison/contrast paper, be sure to develop a thesis that includes words that signal comparisons, such as “although,” “even though,” “in spite of,” “except for,” “not withstanding,” or “but.” Also, use appropriate transitions to signal comparisons and link paragraphs within the body of your paper, such as “on the other hand,” “in contrast,” “similarly,” “also,” “both,” “even though,” and “in the same way.” In order for two things to be worth comparing, the two things should initially appear to be different. In order for two things to be worth contrasting, the two things should initially appear to be similar. Comparing and contrasting are ways of exploring the similarities and differences between two things. 'Compare and contrast' is often used as a development strategy for essay assignments but it's a helpful strategy for any important decisions you have to make. Generally speaking, comparing is showing the similarities, and contrasting is showing differences between two things that are related in some way. For example, you wouldn't compare/contrast reading a book to driving a car, but you would compare reading a book to reading with an e-reader.

Comparing Stats

...Comparing Populations Using Statistical Inference Sunday, September 20, 2015 MBA 6018 | Capella University Practical Application Scenario 1 You are the manager of the Gander Mountain store in Frogtown, Illinois. Recently, a customer mentioned they believed your prices for ammunition were lower than the prices of Gander Mountain's primary competitor in hunting equipment, Cabela's. You would like to include that statement in a forthcoming print advertisement, so you need statistical evidence to support this assertion. * Identify the null and alternative hypotheses needed to test the contention. The null hypothesis is that Gander Mountain’s prices for ammunition are lower than those of their top competitor, Cabela’s. The alternative hypothesis is that Gander Mountain’s prices for ammunition are not lower than Cabela’s. * Then, identify the most appropriate sample selection technique to gather data for testing the hypotheses. The best sample selection technique to use in this scenario would be random probability sampling. * What statistical test should you use to accept or reject this hypothesis using the data you will collect? I think that finding the average or mean prices of Gander Mountain’s ammunition would suffice. Practical Application Scenario 2 Your love of golf has brought you back to the range as the new product manager for UniDun's Straight Flight (SF) line of golf balls.

Joe Paterno Monument Removal

...More than just a Coach Angelo Di Maria’s use of differing elements in Joe Paterno’s monument suggests the man was not just an exceptional coach, but also an exceptional human being. The seven-foot tall, bronze monument on the east side of Beaver Stadium was dedicated to the success of the long-time coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions football program. Centered in the monument, Joe Paterno was displayed smiling and running, presumably onto the field, with a bas-relief of players following behind him. The action of the coach pointing his hand and index-finger up toward the crowd reflected his will to win and dominance throughout the years. Illustrating how Paterno led his players onto the field year after year, in culmination with the career list of the games he coached engraved on the right side of the monument, Maria made it apparent that Paterno was mainly a successful coach. Yet, through the use of Paterno’s iconic quote and three bold adjectives located to the left of Paterno’s statue, the sculptor showcased that Paterno was much more than that. Written as an, “Educator, Coach, (and) Humanitarian”, the words outshadow Joe as just a coach. Backed by the legend’s quote of, “They ask me what I’d like written about me when I’m gone. I hope they write I made Penn State a better place, not just that I was a good football coach”, emphasis is placed on the coach as a caring and loyal individual, whom helped Penn State grow, both on and off the field. Going back to the four......

History J. Fithian Morgan Gentry Fithian. MW 5-615 Architectural History 14 December 2015 The Gateway Arch and the Washington Monument Two mesmerizing architectural pieces that Americans and tourists from around the world visit each year: the Gateway Arch and the Washington Monument. Four minds behind the wonders of the buildings that reside in top cities of the United Sates. Both constructed to perfection to represent important aspects of history, these monuments help represent the United States through architectural aspects. Born in Finland, but educated in America, Eero Saarinen is the architect responsible for the ideas resulting in the Gateway Arch, also known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. Wanting to steer away from working with his father, Saarinen, with fresh architectural ideas, wished to compete in a competition to design an outstanding piece to remember the spirit of the western pioneers. He won the competition in 1947-48. Tragically, Saarinen passed away to a brain tumor and, therefore, did not live to see the day when his famous arch would be built. Hoping to expand the city of St. Louis and increase population size, construction of the 630-foot-high, upside-down “U”......

Artistic Monuments of the High Italian Renaissance

...Artistic Monuments The Age of Pericles refers to the period in Greek history that spans from the Persian Wars in 448 BCE to the death of Pericles 429 BCE or the Peloponnesian War in 404 BCE. Pericles was an Athenian general, politician and orator known for his noteworthy achievements. He gave Athens an unmatched splendor. Hence, his name denotes the Athenian Golden Age. High Italian Renaissance peaked in the 15th century. The Renaissance is known for numerous cultural achievements. Works of art by Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci and architectural structures such as The Duomo and St. Peter's Basilica were created during this time. On the Greek side, the Age of Pericles also produced various works of arts known for perfection. The works were religious such as Temple of Olympian Zeus, Temple of Apollo in Delphi, the massive project Acropolis of Athens which was built by the best architects, sculptors and workers during their time. The Acropolis was considered the most perfect monument in Greek art. During the High Italian Renaissance, Italy's condition was less than perfect but it somehow inspired the citizens to build the best architectural structures. The Age of Pericles saw an era of progress for the Greeks and through the financial aid of the Delian League, Greek art and sculptures also flourished during this time. High Italian Renaissance plunged Italy into turmoil was wars and invasions spread. In sharp contrast, Age of Pericles saw relative......

Comparing Colonies charge of and it soon became the life support of this colony and also made Jamestown money. So it’s evident that money was the driving force of this colony. In the colony of Maryland things were a bit different being that the people mostly held its attention to freedom of religion and not so much on money. It wasn’t until 1649 when restless Protestants adopted the “Act Concerning Religion” that this religious freedom came about. Maryland and Virginia were similar when it came to their work ethic. Like Virginia, Maryland also grew their tobacco and made their money on it but this colony wasn’t entirely base on or known for their riches because religious freedom is really what they sought and what was most important to them. In comparing these two colonies it’s apparent in what ways they differ from one another although they shared a common ground in the need of money for survival, but it’s in the importance of it and the priorities of religion that made them different....

...Pascal Debowiak Mrs. Morse Comparing/Contrast Essay 02/03/16 The Environmental benefits of bicycling There are numerous reasons to own a car. Every day people drive a car to get to work, visit friends, buy groceries and complete many other chores. We are, like it or not, dependent on automobiles. However, bicycles are often a useful alternative and are more environmentally friendly. A car is but also costly and often difficult to pay for. To begin with, buying a two-year old car is smarter than purchasing a new one. After a new car depreciates a couple years, it can be purchased for thousands of dollars less. But whether buying new or used, the car’s cost is only part of the expense. Paying for insurance, maintenance, gas, and repairs adds significantly to the expense. Being able to repair a car yourself helps keep costs down, but there still is an expense. Costs of purchase, maintenance and repair aside, automobiles have an adverse effect on the environment that bicycles do not. Even before a car is driven it consumes energy. Automotive production leaves a giant footprint because materials such as steel, rubber, paints, plastics, and glass must be created before a new ride is ready to roll. But that’s not all; air quality suffers because vehicles are America’s biggest air quality compromisers, producing about one-third of all U.S air pollution. The also contribute to global warming. These findings have caused engineers to develop more eco-friendly cars for the future.......

...Comparing Oedipus and Othello For Oedipus and Othello “duty” should have their first priority. Othello’s duty was supposed to be the importance of his marriage, but he listened to Iago, ignored Desdemona, didn’t believe his own conscience, and his own heart. Oedipus’ duty was to defeat the Sphinx(which he does) free Thebes from heavy taxes(which he does) be a great king of Thebes and be a good husband, but instead he offends Creon, his brother-in-law and uncle; insults his friend, Tiresias the blind prophet; kills his father; and destroys Jocasta, his mother and his queen. Fatal flaws demolished the lives of both Oedipus and Othello. Othello was so proud of his honor and bravery that he didn’t recognize his violent temper and Iago’s mind tricks. Oedipus was so proud of his cleverness that he tried so hard to escape his own fate. With all that said, these were honestly just a couple of comparable traits between Oedipus and Othello. When looking for a great leader that would lead your city through anything and everything it is not hard to tell that both Oedipus and Othello could be those leaders. Both had great gifts in leadership. They stood up in what they believed in. Each held exceptional accomplishments and both possessed the ability to be an all-around leader. Othello was a respectable citizen who was usually known for his fighting or war success. He knew how and what the goal was to succeed. Not all leaders knew that. Oedipus was also somewhat the same. He,......
