What Is the Message of Nietzche’s Beyond Good and Evil to the Current Society?Friedrich Nietzsche’s 1886 masterpiece, Beyond Good and Evil, provides a powerful assertion of individual morality that has potent implications for the modern world of the 21st century. In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche rejects moral dogmatism, the assumption that there is a single moral truth and only one code by which to live that truth.
Sorry, but copying text is forbidden on this website!In the Prologue to Romeo and Juliet, the Chorus tells us of an “ancient grudge” between two households of equal dignity that has broken out into a “new mutiny” that will cause blood to flow in the streets of Verona and will ultimately result in the deaths of the “star-cross’d lovers.” The Chorus points to the heads of these two families as the source of the strife at hand, the rage of their parents causing the deaths of their children. We soon learn the surnames of the warring clans, Capulet and Montague, and both patriarchs (as well as their respective ladies) appear in the flesh in the play’s first scene. Although Tybalt of the Capulets is the most aggressive character on the stage, Mercutio’s twice-spoken curse, “a plague a’ both houses!” (III, i., ll.91, 106), makes it plain that the sides are equally to blame for his death, and by extension, for the tragedy that befalls the lovers.Beyond this, however, we are never told what the original cause of the war between the Capulets and Montagues was.

7.12 Smoking and mental health7.12.0 Introduction In Australia, while the prevalence of smoking is declining in the general community, it remains high among people with mental illness.1 Compared with the general population, people with mental illness have higher smoking rates, higher levels of nicotine dependence, and a disproportionate health and financial burden from smoking.2, 3 Smokers with co-occurring mental illness or substance use disorders have limited access to cessation treatment, longer durations of smoking, and lower rates of quitting. Such smokers are also far more likely to die from their smoking than as a result of their psychiatric condition.2 Australian men with mental illness live 15.9 years less and women live 12 years less than those without mental illness,4 and most of the excess morbidity and mortality is attributable to smoking-related illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease, and cancer.4, 5 The mechanisms underlying the relationship between mental health conditions and smoking are complex, and vary between disorders.6 Smokers often perceive their smoking to be helpful in relieving or managing psychiatric symptoms, such as feelings of depression, anxiety, and stress.7 Many mental health workers also believe that smoking cessation will exacerbate mental illness.8 However, recent evidence suggests that the reverse is true; quitting smoking for at least six weeks actually improves mental health, mood, and quality of life, both among the general population and among people with a psychiatric disorder.7 Smokers with mental illness are as motivated to quit as the general population, and despite lower overall success rates, can quit successfully.9 Integrating tobacco cessation interventions into routine mental health treatment, and providing more intensive intervention when required, forms an important part of reducing the large health disparities between those with and without a mental health problem.6, 7 This section includes information on: 7.12.1 Prevalence of smoking among people with mental health problems Data from the National Drug Strategy Household Survey show that in Australia in 2016, daily smokers were more than twice as likely to have high/very high levels of psychological distress compared with people who had never smoked (22% compared with 10%, respectively) and were more than twice as likely to have been diagnosed or treated for a mental health condition (29% compared with 12%).10 Smoking prevalence tends to increase alongside the severity of the psychiatric disorder.8 For example, two Australian studies conducted 10 years apart both found that among people living with psychotic disorders, about 70% of men and 60% of women are smokers.1, 11 Figure 7.12.1 shows the prevalence of smoking among people diagnosed and/or treated for mental disorders in Australia in 2016.
Your resume is extremely important in finding a job and is the biggest factor in whether you get the interview or not. Living in one state (or country) and applying for jobs out of state makes it even more vital.And one of the biggest hurdles is how to list your location on your resume when applying for jobs in a different state.A question on this topic was emailed to me by a reader last week:Hi Biron. I’m living in San Francisco and trying to move to Denver. The problem I’m running into is that I’m not receiving any interviews and I’m guessing it’s because there are local applicants that are equally qualified.
Nowadays, the college dropout rate is increasing every year. “Nationwide, only 37 per cent of students who enroll as freshmen at a four-year university earn a degree within four years” (Moore par.3). This is an alarming knowledge that encourages us to look into some of the main reasons of the college dropout.
