Jane Austins Pride and Prejudice Attitudes to love and marriage in the nineteenth century was very different from the comparatively liberal approach of today, and strict codes of etiquette were applied to Courtship for all but the lower classes of society. At the time of Pride and Prejudice, womens role was firmly in the home and the young ladies portrayed in this middle and upper class, occupied themselves with singing, playing the piano, sewing and other such accomplishments that would enhance their prospects of suitable marriage.

Finally we see marriage of propriety between Charlotte Locus and Mr Collins. Jane Austen uses humour to present her views by satirising many of her characters especially Mrs Bennet. In Chapter 1 we are introduced to her business, which is the basis of the novel: The business of her life was getting her daughters married; its solace was visiting and news. We laugh at Mrs Bennet because her stupidity is shown during every crisis in the book. When Jane receives an invitation to dine at Netherfield, Mrs Bennet works out a way to enable Jane to spend the night there and saw her off with many a cheerful prognostics of a bad day(Ch.7 p.24) Similarly, when Jane and Elizabeth wished to return earlier than expected from Netherfield, Mrs Bennet is so obsessed with the daughters courtship that she could not bring herself to receive then with pleasure before, the week was over despite the fact that Elizabeth had written begging that the carriage be sent forShow MoreRelated Jane AustinÃ¢â¬â¢s Pride and Prejudice1216 Words Ã |Ã 5 PagesJane AustinÃ¢â¬â¢s Pride and Prejudice Jane Austin was and English writer who wrote during the early 1800Ã¢â¬â¢s.

How does caffeine affect our body? Caffeine is the most common thing in those kinds of beverages, such as Coca-Cola, Mountain Dew, Gatorade, coffee, etc. Drink too much will affect our body. It will cheer you up, but somehow still will destroy your body. Addicted to caffeine may cause blood glucose, Insulin Resistance and Muscle, Skeletal disease. Caffeine is a xanthine alkaloid compound, but also a central nervous system stimulant, and can be very beneficial to human health if ingested, appropriately. However, if excessive intake of caffeine, not only would not play its fundamental role, but will cause health problem, also affect our teeth and bone. If one-time excessive intake of caffeine, it is likely to occur caffeine intoxicationÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦If the one-time continuous drinking 2-3 cups of coffee, it would lead to central nervous system hyper-excitability.

Question: Explain software development methodology. Answer: Software development is a process of making computer programming, documenting the programs, testing the software and bug fixing the application to meet the requirement of the user (Fioravanti, 2006). It is a process through which an application is developed for support the use of hardware. It includes creation and development of frameworks and these frameworks includes software release life cycle that finally results into creation of a software product. Software development includes several types of methodologies (Kumiega and Van Vliet, 2008). Choosing an appropriate methodology depends on the requirement of the software. There are several types of methodologies used in developing software. They are basically waterfall method, incremental method, prototype model, agile software development etc. (Sillitti, 2010). In most cases the first type of methodology is used, i.e. the waterfall method is used because it is an easier process of software development system and it makes the work of the software developer easier to be conducted (Khoury, n.d.). It is a sequential process of software development in which each task is followed by another task to complete the entire development process. In this report the waterfall method is used because it suites the requirement of the software development process. The processes involved in waterfall methodology of software development are as follows:- 1. Requirements: For developing software the first and foremost step that must be taken by the software developer is to check and know the requirement of the software that the software must fulfill after development. To know this the developing team makes the market survey and survey of the requirements of the software. It is important to check the requirements of the software to design its development process. 2. Design: The creation of the design of the software development process that is done by the software developing company. The design serves as the blueprint of the system that is to be developed in the entire process. It is a method of planning and deciding the objective of the developing project. 3. Implementation: After the completion of the design the project is conducted and the software is developed by the developers by using coding and other methods for creating the software (Mathaisel, Manary and Criscimagna, 2012). This is a process of documenting the design into a real system. 4. Testing: After the creation of the software system, the software is checked by the test analyst to see whether the software meets the requirement of the producing company for whom the software is been developed (Lewis, 2008). Is the software capable to run the automatic vehicles? If the software passes the test, a final projection is made and the software is launched in the app market for sale. 5. Deployment: This process comes after the completion of the development process of the software. During this step the software is made available in the market for the customers to be used. The available software is used by the user and a feedback is collected on the performance of the software. For example, how much is the software capable of running the automatic robotic vehicles. 6. Maintenance: As per the feedback of the market necessary changes are made and new updates are created for making the software more useful for the users. References Fioravanti, F.

Ludwig Van Beethoven BEETHOVEN 1770-1827 Life of Beethoven I. Education in general and in music Beethoven came from a musical family, and his early musical training was under his father's guidance. His father taught him piano and violin. His general education was not continued beyond the elementary school. He was practically illiterate in math. II. Self assertion As a youth of 19, in 1789, Beethoven took legal steps to have himself placed at the head of his family. He petitioned for half his father's salary to support his brothers. This act of self-assertion is an indication of his character. III. Studies with Haydn A. The first contact On one of Haydn's trips to London, he met the young Beethoven. Beethoven showed Haydn a cantata and he received Haydn's commendation. The Elector of Bonn paid for Beethoven's lessons and expences in to study with Haydn in Vienna. B. The studies Beethoven arrived in Vienna in 1792 and studied with Haydn for about one year. The arrangement proved to be a dissappointment to Beethoven. C. The relationship Outwardly in public the two were cordial, but there were troubles with the relationship--maybe professional jealousy caused the problems. D. Other teachers Beethoven turned to other teachers when Haydn went to London for the second time. He studied with Albrechtsberger, famous as a choir director at St. Stephens in Vienna and the best-known counterpoint teacher in Vienna. He then studied Salieri, famous in Mozart's biography. Salieri helped Beethoven in setting Italian words to music. IV. Establishment as pianist and composer His first task in Vienna was to establish himself as pianist and composer. He achieved both rapidly. A. Aristocracy He had worked for a court in Bonn so his first contacts were in aristocratic circles. He needed financial support from them. B. Public concerts Public concerts were not yet the way of life in Vienna, but Beethoven did begin a series of charity concerts. Later in 1800 he gave his first concert for his own benefit. C. Opus 1 His opus 1, Trios for Piano Violin and Cello, were designed to impress Viennese society. Each trio is in 4 movements. Beethoven created parity among the instruments in these trios. V. Brothers and Nephew A. Fighting with brothers All three brothers lived in Vienna and they often came to blows in the street. B. Fighting for nephew After his brother Carl died in 1815 Beethoven felt responsible for his nephew Karl. He had little difficulty in persuading himself that his sister-in-law was unfit to care for Karl. He went to court requesting guardianship (he won). VI. Deafness A. The secret It is not known for sure when he began to go deaf, but he kept the fact a secret until 1801 when he wrote a Bonn friend about his miserably life. B. Heiligenstadt Testament Having moved out of the city for medical reasons he wrote the Heiligenstadt Testament. C. Total deafness He was totally deaf by 1818. He continued to compose until the year of his death in 1827.
