Comparing the Lives of Athenian

Athen and Sparta were two great city-states of Greece Empire. The two city-states were located far from each other. Athen located in Attica, a peninsula with a number of islands and rocky soil; this location enabled Athenain people to choose trading as their economic life. Sparta, which was a capital of Lacinia and also city-state in ancient Greece, located on the right bank of the Evrétas River that stretch 32.5 km from the sea. Athen from the name of goodness Athena, who won the competition with the sea god named Poseidon. Around 800 BC, the aristocracy in Athens replaced the king as the head of government; and ruled the city-state toward democracy. The Athenian men became the citizens after two years of military training. The young men learned between the age of 8 and 18 of several subjects such as grammar, music, and art of public speaking. Spartan was one of the divisions of inhabitants of Laconia, and the Spartan was well-known as the highest class in the society, they were the governors, rulers and soldiers. The system of Sparta government was a monarchy. The life in Sparta was similar to that of other city-state of the Greek cities, and art and poetry. From the 6th century BC, the Spartan regarded themselves as the military garrison, and the discipline is the war. The men of Spartan were expected to train in the military drill at the age of 7 and enter the army at 20. They were forced to live in the barrack, and subsequently permitted to get married at the age 30 and maintained their duty as hoplites and to eat at the phidita. Under their serious discipline, the Spartan became the greatest warriors in the ancient Greece, as shown as the greatest devote and sacrifice of 300 heroes. As above briefing of the two city-state of Greece Empire on the location, system of government, and, especially, the duties of men around their age, we have found some differences. How about the women in their city-state? Were they also different through the system of government or not? The most important thing is that we will focus on the way that Athenian and Spartan treated and viewed their women through the differences and similarities. The differences based on women’s education, to which social Athens and Sparta provided; women’s marriage life, which family and society in Athens and Sparta expected and prepared; beauty judgment, which was valued based on artificial and natural beauty; freedom in society, which was related to public participation; and property owning, which was the right for buying and selling on property. Similarities based on requirement of getting married, requirement of giving birth to healthy sons, and assembly forbidden. Furthermore, we will subsequently regard the good and the bad points of both Athenian and Spartan women at that period; and compare their life to the majority of women in the present. Differences Education At an early age, Spartan women were taught to defend themselves, and, in addition, how to read and write so as to manage the family’s property in case their husband was gone. However, they did not get much knowledge of house-duties as Athenian women had because education in Spartan society was thought of highly and women were given the same teachings as men. Moreover, the women could even take roles in any kind of test that used strength as the men could. That’s why, Spartan women were generally recognized as athletes who had enough ability to fight against others, spending a lot of time joining in such sporting events as wrestling, running, javelin throwing, riding horseback, and others while household works were regarded as the responsibilities of the vanquished people, called Helots, and slaves in Sparta. Besides, they received some education related to their own culture which included social and traditional, religious songs, dancing and music. As a result, Spartan women were provided with both academic and physical education. Athenian women, on the other hand, were taught only how to write and read and essential household jobs, which mostly was conducted at home such as weaving, spinning, sewing, cooking, and others which their families had. They were not only allowed to participate, but also to be spectators in most athletic events. They were expected only to be good at domestic duty management. Beauty judgments As Spartan women endured strict discipline and learned to defend Sparta in the same way as men did, women in Sparta did not care much of their artificial beauty. They gave much value to their native beauty; that’s why; they were famous for their natural beauty. They were not allowed to use creams, or powders, even jewelry. Athenian, in the contrary, could use any type of cosmetics or make-up, nice clothes, particularly valuable and elaborate jewelry, for being attractive and charming. Consequently, they gave high score to non-native beauty. Marriage Life Athenian Women Regarding their marriage lives, Athenian and Spartan women were also destined to be different from each other according to their societies. Athenian women were regarded as a lot weaker than men; they had to be protected at home and were not allowed to go out of the house without the companion of their male relatives. At their very young age, mostly during their 13 or 14, they were arranged to get married by their fathers. Mostly Athenian women get married to a man whom she had never met or known before as they usually had to be kept and protected at home. Their groom usually came from prominent families at the age of around 30 years old. The bride’s father had to pay a dowry to the groom and also arrange a marriage ceremony which was called “gamos”. The marriage ceremony started after the dark. The bride wore a veil and traveled from her home to her groom’s home by standing in a chariot. Her family, friends, and relatives traveled on foot and carrying torches to light the way. They also played music to scare the evil spirits away. The marriage ceremony was complicated and took very long time to finish. The ceremony also included music, dancing, singing, and feasting. Moreover, Athenian brides were not supposed to meet their grooms before the contract had already been approved. And after marriage, they had to move from their houses to live with their husbands’ families. Yet they were not considered to be a member of their husbands’ families until they gave birth to their first child. Furthermore, Athenian women were not allowed to control of money worth more than a bushel of grain. They were not the one who controlled the budget of the family. Athenian wives were supposed to give birth to strong and healthy sons. Therefore, Athenian thought that women had to be protected at home, not allowed to take parts in sport, military training, or any athletic competitions, or even do exercise. Women in Athens had the rights to initiate a divorce but the percentage of their success was very low which means they had to provide a lot of evidences and reasons to public official and they also needed the agreement from their husbands. And after the divorced, they did not have rights to have their children with them. Their children were supposed to stay with their husbands. Spartan Women On the other hand, if we look at the marriage life of Spartan women, we can see the differences between the two. Spartan women usually get married at the age of 18 and their marriages were never to a stranger. They knew the bachelors all by names and reputations. And if their fathers chose a suitable husband for them, they have always had the rights to discuss it. Nothing in Spartan law or custom prevented them from rejecting their father’s offer. Unlike Athenian society, the bride’s father did not have to pay a dowry to the groom. And there was no ceremony of Spartan marriage. The bride just had to shave her hair like a boy, wear man’s clothes and waited for the groom alone in the dark. Then the groom also came alone to abduct her in the night. Then the groom had to return back to barrack (where Spartan men between the age of 21 and 30 had to stay there collectively for military training). We can see that, unlike Athenian society that couples stayed with each other after marriage, Spartans couples first had to live separately until the husband reach 30 that he could leave barrack and live with their own families. Moreover, Spartan wives could take control of an estate, household, and the family finances. And in order to give birth to a strong and healthy son, Spartan women were allowed to do exercise, join athletic competitions, and also in military training to make their bodies strong and healthy which were completely different from Athenian practice. Moreover, women in Sparta could divorce their husband without losing their properties and their rights to their children. Freedom in Society Regarding women’s status in society, Athenian women had very less freedom and rights. In Athens, women had a secluded life since their place was in the home. They were required to be at home most of the time in order to bear and educate their children, order the slaves to do the household, and prepare the food, etc. Their status would be lost if they did not do so. Usually, the amount of slaves a family had determined the work of a woman. In other words, the household duties of women depended on whether or not the family was rich or poor. In rich family, women would distribute jobs to the slaves. In contrast, women from poor family had more duties than those from rich family. As poor, they had no slaves to help their work. Then, there were additional tasks for them such as shopping for food and making the families clothing. However, women from poorer classes could go outdoor much more than rich women and acquire a job to help their finances such as being wet-nurse, mid wives, market seller. In the opposite, wealthy women could not do so. Furthermore, they were always protected by their slaves or male relatives when they went out,but they should not stay or talk closely with men in order to maintain their own reputation. Generally, Athenian women were not allowed to answer the door of the home or stay in the same room with other male guests. Their house even made a separation between men and women as well. The wives, daughters, and female slaves lived upstairs, in rooms that were away from the windows and streets. Though Athens was a democracy city-state, Athenians women still could not participate in public activities such as voting or joining politics. They could neither watch nor participate in the Olympic Games, athletic competition, and military training. They were allowed to join religious festival only. On the other hand, Spartan women were famous for their independence compared to other Greek women. They could live freely and leave the house whenever they wanted. Of course, Spartan women’s primary role was also bearing and raising their children. However, the Spartan believed that if a woman remained healthy and strong, she would better perform her job. Although Spartan girls did not go through military training, they were educated. Spartan women were being taught to be very capable athletes through the physical training. There were regular competitions such as running and wresting, and Spartan women were allowed to take part in these sporting events. Moreover, Spartan women were strongly encouraged to speak in public, and they could join group discussion in public. Although women were not allowed to participate and express their voice at the public assembly, Spartan women still had the influence in the community and often express their opinions about political issues. They believed that their husbands would bring their voices to the assembly for them. Thus, compared to other women in ancient Greek city-states, Sparta women were luckier, they were free to move outside and they could involve in education, military and also politics. In short, women in Sparta enjoyed more rights and better status while women in Athens were forced to be at home most of the time. Property holding/owning Women in Sparta had more rights than women in Athens as well. Spartan women could inherit property while Athenian women had no such rights. Spartan women had the rights to own wealth and property. In Sparta, normally, when a person died, the land would be inherited by the owner’s children. Because of the flexibility of Spartan law, the daughters had equal rights to inherit as the sons did. Spartan daughters were expected to inherit half of what a son would inherit. Furthermore, after married, Spartan women could own both her husband’s land and hers, but her land couldn’t become her husband land. According to Aristotle report, Spartan women totally owned forty percent of the land in Sparta. Of course, Sparta women also had authority on their land. They could control, manage, and abandon their land whenever they wanted. In addition, Spartan women could gain income from their land as well. In contrary to Spartan, Athenian women could not own property in their own right. In Athens, the law stated that all inheritances were passed through the male line, only limited property could be owned by women. Even though women in Athens could not own property such as Spartan women, they still had right to own jewelry, clothes, and other inexpensive things. In addition, they could own slaves as well, but they were not able to buy anything. In short, Athenian women didn’t have financial independence compared to Spartan women. Religion All Greeks worshiped the same gods. However, they emphasize on different gods. Warrior gods were highly respected by Spartans. Usually, god of beauty, fitness, health and childbirth were adored by Spartan women. Moreover, they were freely allowed to join in cults centered on local heroes or myths. For example, the cultof Helen of Sparta and the cult of Cynisca were generally practiced all among Spartans. Cynisca, a well-known Spartan chariot racer, the princess, is the first woman who won the Ancient Olympic Games. Thus, Spartan women enjoy chariot racing and horse races. Similarly, in Athens, religion was considered as the aspect of their daily life which women could worship freely. In Athens, the priestess of Athena are regarded as the city goddess, and held much honor. Whenever Athens needs to make decisions, they always go to consult with the priestess because people respect her. Every year, the anniversary of Athena is celebrated in Panathenaea festival. In that ceremony, Athens chose virgins girls, which were nobles’ daughters, to carry holy baskets in the procession. There are some doubts that, since only daughters of nobles were chosen, Athens girls who were not chosen were insult because of the concerning of her reputation. However, every four year, Athens women enjoyed making new peplos or robe for the Athena effigy. In that ceremony, two women, who was between seventh and eleventh, begun the program and other chosen women ended the program. Furthermore, Athens women could participate in every cult. For example, only women were freely joint Thesmophoria, the most mysterious and celebrated festival, a fertility ritual for Demeter. In that rite, women spent three days on Demeter’s hilltop sanctuary in order to perform rites and celebrating. While staying on that hilltop, they collected rotten remains from the pits on that hill and they spread it around their crops for a good harvest. Later, many foreigners immigrated to Athens and they brought along their cults. Similarities Although there are massive differences between Athenian and Sparta women, still there are some similarities among these two women group since they are both Greek. One of the other similarities is that all Athenian and Sparta women have to get married. Even though Athenian women mostly get married by the age of fourteen to sixteen while Sparta women marry at the age of eighteen, both Athenian and Sparta’s marriage were arranged by their fathers. Another point is that they were expected to give birth to strong and healthy sons. In Athens and Sparta, the main duties of women were to bear children, manage their home and slaves. Lastly, Athenian and Sparta women are not allowed to join assembly. In fact, women in Sparta had more right than women in Athens. Spartan women endured strict discipline and learn to defend Sparta. They can participate in public group exercise, military drill and gymnastics. However, like Athenian women, they have no right to attend in assembly. Conclusion According to the clarifications of each part, Athenian and Spartan women in ancient Greece were much different from each other. As we can see, education of Spartan women was almost the same as men’s. Athenian women, in contrary, were required to study the household chores. Furthermore, Athenian women got married at the early age and the process of the ceremony was complicated while women in Sparta got more rights before and after married,. Athenian women were evaluated on the appearance decoration; anyway, the natural beauty of Spartan women was more attractive than artificial materials. Moreover, Spartan women were provided more rights than Athenian women on the public participation, family and the right for owning property. Compared to women in the present time, we can regard that Sparta city-state evaluated their women by giving many rights that were equal to men. It exhibited what call gender at the present time although the women were not allowed to hold the official work in the assembly and government like the women in the 21st century. To sum up, the valuable provision to women’s right is the brilliant opinion not only for the past and present, but also every time in the future for every place and everywhere around the world.

Flash Nonfiction: “Settling on Structure” (3 chapters); “The Singular Moment” (3 chapters)—pp. 113-156Craft Group prompts should be discussion starters that explore some specific quote from The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Writing Flash Nonfiction chapters assigned for this week. Your one prompt is due by Sunday at 11:59 pm. This assignment will not show up on the calendar because the Week 1 Craft Group doesn’t close until Wednesday at 11:59 pm when the responses are due. Late prompts or responses will receive no credit. This is your chance to grapple with the notions that Moore and other writers suggest about writing in general or the flash nonfiction specifically. Think of craft as the deliberate choices writers make when creating their work. Be sure to(1) introduce and include a quotation from the chapter, video, or podcast you’re discussing that exemplifies the craft element you want to explore.(2) Tell us what you think about the quote, then(3) ask an open-ended question that refers to it. You’ll need all three elements to get full credit. These prompts should be ideas that get us started thinking and discussing. They should not be questions that can be answered with a fact or with a yes or no. Make sure you read all the prompts that have been submitted before yours. Do not repeat a prompt that someone has already submitted. This would be plagiarism. Example: In The Rose Metal Press Field Guild to Writing Flash Nonfiction, Dinty Moore writes, “The brief essay, in other words, needs to be hot from the first sentence, and the heat must remain the entire time.” He goes on to explain that “the heat might come from language, from image, from voice or point-of-view, from revelation or suspense, but there must always be a burning urgency of some sort, translating through each sentence, starting with the first.” All this heat is a daunting imperative, but I think it’s important for writers to get adept at finding the heat of their ideas and stories in order to write engaging prose. Where do you find heat in Lia Purpura’s essay “Augury,” which we had to read for this week? Does the heat come from more than one source?2.

Information Systems In Banking Industry. INFORMATION SYSTEMS IN BANKING INDUSTRY Executive Summary: Information systems are extremely vital for the growth and survival of business organizations in today’s world. All sectors of the industry are entirely dependent on these for the management of important information and data. Small organizations to large, powerful businesses such as high street banks and central and local government are taking the help of information systems to regulate their data. In this paper, we will discuss the various advantages of the use of information systems in the banking industry. We will thoroughly analyze the requirements of information systems at the various different levels and review the security needs for these purposes. Use and Benefits of Information Systems in the Banking Industry: The advent of computers has given rise to information systems being used as a business tool on a large scale. Computers and more specifically information systems are being used on a large scale by almost all businesses. The application of the capabilities of Information systems and technologies brings out improvement in business processes (Davenport and Short, 1990). One of the major sectors to reap the benefits of computers and information systems is the banks. The nature of the banking industry along with other financial industries involves information and trust. Being in the service industry, banks are in the most need of information. Technologies like cloud computing and other internet based information storage systems have allowed banks to deliver state of the art customer services to its customers while maintain the market competitiveness required for gaining business. The following paper analyzes the information needs of the banks at various departmental levels and compares the security levels used by banks with those in other sectors. At the end of the paper, one should be able to understand the most commonly used technologies in banks, the security measures currently used in banks and whether or not there is scope for further improvement. Information Needs in Banks: The need of information was first realized in the banking industry. Being in the service sector, banks needed to store information to better their services and gain a competitive edge over their competitors. Basic services include the book keeping records of the customers while the luxurious ones include the facility of an IVR (Interactive Voice Recording) through which customers can get answers to their F.A.Q’s. However, developing an information system needs huge investments, responsibility of non-leakage of information (robustness of the system), and various other security measures. Banks therefore need information at every stage possible. The benefits of information are many. Today, decision making systems are also used by banks for purposes of marketing newer loan schemes. Typically, banks might need information at the following levels. Basic or Level 1: This is the most basic level. Information at this level might be used purely for administrative purposes. Tasks include book keeping, account handling of customers etc. The revolution of internet banking has made the basic level much more attractive to customers than it used to be. Moreover the concept of phone banking through IVRs has further proved to be a major technological step towards the progress of banks and IT systems. Advanced or Level 2: At this level, information is crucial and is used at the managerial level. Managers use certain information like stock listings, annual general meetings etc in databases that is to be kept secure. This information is supposed to be secret and cannot be distributed without consent and proper authoritative power. Information at this level is hardly for customer use. However, in cases of fraud and cheating, banks can use this as a safety measure to ensure their reputation does not lose. Evaluation of Information Systems: Majority of the banks in the western countries and more recently in Asian countries to use the advent of information systems to bolster their business. Decision making tools, account management systems, and internet based systems are widely used by banks to lure customers in the quest to attract them. Since the sector they operate is the service sector, banks need to realize that they can ill afford to let their customer service affect due to the technological advances. To evaluate the information systems used by banks, one needs to realize the general nature of information systems used by banks currently. Nature of Information systems currently used by banks: A variety of information systems are being used by banks. Currently, most banks operate with multiple legacy systems that operate on a single mainframe computer (Lenard ML, Ferran C 1997). With times, this basic concept has not changed much. The concept of object oriented programming has given rise to the use of multiple servers thereby reducing the load on a single PC. Moreover, the internet has evolved as a complete source of secure technology that acts as a useful resource to the banks. The advent of internet based systems (popularly known as web based systems) has allowed banks to be more precise and keep a hassle free record system. However, the internet based systems have led to many security issues. The next section describes them. Security: The main problem of internet based applications is the level of security provided. There have been a number of cases with the most famous ones being the ATM card duplication and credit card faults have all arisen due to information system vulnerability. Therefore, banks need to provide a level of security that cannot be breached. It is tough to say that the system is “foolproof” since programming involves coding and decoding. Therefore what can be coded can also be decoded. However, many security measures have been taken by bank authorities in accordance with the IT professionals to allow smooth hassle free banking through the use of computers and information systems. Some of the common security features include the secure server technology (SSL technology), Enforcement of laws like the Data protection act enables for more careful banking by the banks. The law enables anyone the use the information provided over the internet with due care and only with the consent of the provider of that information. This law has worked wonders in that it has made the owners of websites more responsible to such mishaps. Information flooded over the internet can only be used for purposes said and described prior to collection of it. Law thus acts as one of the barriers to those who want to breach it. Apart from law, security levels include password remembrance systems, additional information provision and providing passwords to specific phone numbers only. By doing this, the internet has taken help of other acquisitions of humans into consideration. The logic is that a human cannot lose all at a time and hence is a good measure to reduce the security threats. Cloud Computing? Cloud computing is the term given to applications which operate over the web and are accessible to everyone who has an access to the internet. Intranet, knowledge based systems and websites are all examples of cloud computing. Cloud computing takes help of a third party service provider to rent the applications. With cloud computing, users need to have little expertise over the computer and its working. This calls for major security threats since it can be accessible by anyone who has access to a computer. Computer literacy is also little required. However, for our chosen organization cloud computing is not suitable. Although in other service sectors, cloud computing has worked wonders to attract customer base, banks cannot afford to use such systems. In fact, banks can operate with secure systems and yet gain an advantage by stating their expertise and care they take for their customers. To conclude, the use and benefits of information systems in banks are many. Along with these come many challenges which the banks need to take care of. However, with the wonderful invention, banks have certainly been revolutionized. References: C. Ferran and M.L Lenard, “An Object Oriented Approach to Banking Information Systems”, 1997, pp. 1-7.

A Mexican American Cultural Experience Essay

America is the melting pot of the world. One can encounter many different cultures within a community. As a result, there are several options for cultural experiences available. One particular event that occurred within my community was a Mexican American Festival. This was a festival acknowledging the Day of Dead which was celebrated throughout Mexico on November 1. At first, I thought it was another Halloween party, but it turned out to be something completely different. In Mexico, the Day of Dead (Día de Muertos) is a traditional holiday to remember all of one’s family members and friends who have passed away. As tradition goes, families will visit the cemetery and decorate the graves with colorful flowers, candles, and other little adornments. At home, the memorial continues as the families create an alter with a picture of the person who has passed away and they decorate this alter with things that were of interest to the deceased when they were alive. This is followed by a huge family gathering including music, food, and fun for everyone. The belief is that during the Day of the Dead, the deceased love will return and visit their alter. There were several people from the Mexican culture at the Mexican American Festival. There were several families with many children, seniors, and groups of friends. Many of the Hispanic people were dressed in authentic Mexican clothes including sombreros and boots for the men and large colorful, flowing dresses for the women. Others were dressed like the current fad. There was a mixture of different clothing, but one could tell it was a Mexican celebration because many had authentic wear or things one would not normally see in the American culture. The entire hall was decorated with skeletons and skulls which is a traditional Day of the Dead decoration in Mexico. There were also piñatas hanging from the ceiling and the lights were lowered with some disco lights. Each table was nicely decorated with small skulls of many different colors. Get your 100% original paper on any topic done in as little as 3 hours Learn More There was a huge dance floor in the middle of the hall and a food buffet in the back of the hall. All of the deco rations were symbolistic of the Mexican culture and were very colorful and festive. It was hard to believe that this was a celebration of death. On the largest wall in the hall was a huge piece of while bulletin board paper with some pens where many of the Mexican people wrote the names of the their deceased family members and friends. This paper was full of name. A form of Mariachi music or salsa music was playing and many people were dancing and having a good time. For awhile, they had a live Mexican band and other times, they had a DJ who played discs. The form of dance was very different from the American way of dancing. It seemed that all of the couples were dancing in a similar 1-2 step fashion. At times it was a salsa dance and other times it was a cumbia or a bachata dance. Some were dancing as a couple and others were dancing in a circle of friends. The music upbeat and lively throughout the entire party. There was also a lot of traditional Mexican food that would be eaten during the Day of the Dead in Mexico. One thing that stood out were the sugar skulls. There were little skulls made out of marzipan. In addition, there were also several skulls shaped cookies and cakes. All of the pastries were in the form of skeleton and skulls just as it is done in Mexico. Dinner was also available for those who were hungry. The menu consisted of tamales, tacos, beans, rice, chicken mole, pozole, and corn on the cob. All meals were served with warm corn tortillas. The food was free with paid admission and there was more than plenty to go around. Plenty of hot sauce was also available. As for drinks, there were Coca Colas, fruit juices, tea, and of course, Corona, the most famous beer of Mexico. Even though people were drinking alcohol, it was a family event and all was very well-controlled. The Day of the Day is a very festive day that is celebrated in all parts of Mexico. The Mexican people who live here in the United States continue to celebrate their tradition. I enjoyed the festival and I learned a lot about the Mexican culture. The food, the dance, the decorations and the symbolism behind the reason for the festival was very culturally oriented, educational, and entertaining. We will write a custom Essay on A Mexican American Cultural Experience specifically for you! Get your first paper with 15% OFF Learn More It gave me an entire new respect in the Mexican culture. By attending festivals such as this one, I feel that I better understand a small part of the Mexican culture and it was an honor to be apart of such a sentimental memorial. It was a very important event for each and every participant and their Mexican pride was very evident. I believe that if more people could attend festivals such as this one; not only from the Mexican culture, but also from other cultures, much of the world’s racism might be eliminated. Racism stems from a lack of understand, and when one is offered opportunities such as this one, an opportunity for understanding the culture is available. Although I did not understand the language, I still had fun and for the most part, understood everything that was going on. Viva Mexico!
