• link between artists and the regime - the nature of his observation of Dreyman means he is immersed in their alternative culture, which makes him aware of his own shortcomings and become disillusioned with communism

• has a metamorphosis which shows how art can have a positive effect on anyone - how it can change characters and beliefs for the better
• lurking, observing, menacing presence symbolises the action of the Stasi - a shadow behind everyone's life
• always wears Stasi uniform - shows how dedicated he is, how he clings to the communist ideal, even when the regime has rejected him (after his betrayal) and finally collapsed
• monotonal colours show the social isolation in which he lives, e.g. he lives in a typical, empty Stasi flat - shows contrast between homely artistic atmosphere and cold communist existence
• lack of dialogue - unwilling (or forbidden) to express emotion, he is reserved and tight-lipped, reflecting the repression of the regime
Key Quotes
• "Bei Verhören arbeiten Sie mit den Feinden des Sozialismus. Vergessen Sie das nie." - When teaching in the Stasi-Schule, this quote shows what a convinced socialist he is at the start, before he has changed due to Dreyman's artistic influence
• "Ein Wort zu irgendwem, und ihre Marscha verliert morgen ihren Medizin-Studienplatz. Verstehen Sie?" - After bugging Dreyman's flat, this quote shows how ruthless the Stasi were and how commited he was to his cause
• "Irgendwo muss der Sozialismus doch beginnen" - In the cantine with Grübitz, this quote shows what a loyal socialist he is, and therefore how commited he is to the regime. However, this quote also shows that he, as a 'true' socialist, is aware that the 'communist' regime is rotten to the core - literally - as communism has no place within the heart of the regime itself
• "Zeit für bittere Wahrheiten!" - When making…...

...Messrs, Fonatine, Guadin, Hauptmann, and Zinnser are using the “individualistic” or “distributive bargaining” approaches, which are the most commonly used approach to legal negotiations. It focuses on “winning” in the sense of maximizing the likelihood the client will prevail and what the client receives upon prevailing (Herman, 2001). In December of 1984, Fontaine and Gaudin sat down to their traditional end-of-year review of all existing chemical contracts. As a matter of course, the Reliant VCM contract came under review. Although everything had been proceeding very smoothly, the prospects for the near and long-term future were obviously less clear because Reliant had serious reservations about committing the company to a five-year contract extension. He cited the rapid fluctuations in the demand, pricing structure, and competition of Reliant’s various product lines, particularly in the construction industry, as well as what appeared to be a changing perspective in the overall supply of VCM. Quite frankly, Hauptmann said, Reliant didn’t want to be caught in a long-term commitment to Pacific if the market price of VCM was likely to drop in the foreseeable future. As a result, Reliant wanted to make a commitment for only a two-year contract renewal. Pacific Oil replied by willing to make adjustments in other parts of the contract to ensure protection against dramatic changes in either the market price or the demand for Reliant’s product lines. Hauptmann was adamant and......

...addition, pharmacologic agents such as progesterone-containing medications (birth control pills), narcotics, benzodiazepines, calcium-channel blockers and theophylline may decrease the pressure of LES. The relationship of H. pylori and GERD   has been one of controversy. Some early studies suggested that eradication of H. pylori infection in the setting of duodenal ulcer disease would result in an increase in erosive esophagitis and GERD symptoms. Although there are several studies to support this, the weight of the evidence suggests strongly that eradication of H. pylori has no effect on the development of heartburn and in fact does not exacerbate GERD symptoms when they are present at baseline. Symptoms/Clinical Manifestations Most common clinical manifestations are heartburn which is a burning feeling rising from the stomach or lower chest and radiating toward the neck, throat and occasionally back, regurgitation, chest pain, dysphagia.   Symptoms occur after eating large meals, or after ingesting spicy foods, citrus products, fats, chocolates, caffeine   and alcohol. These symptoms are related to   reflux esophagitis or inflammation of the esophagus which is due to highly acidic reflux stomach contents. Persistent GERD causes complications which includes esophageal strictures, Barrett esophagus (columnar tissue replacing the normal squamous epithelium of the distal esophagus, which is a significant risk for esophageal cancer). Pulmonary symptoms......

...regulated herbal product Aloe Cure, two products advertised as options in the management of gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Advertisement of just about anything is just about everywhere and with the rapid expansion of technology our society is currently immersed in, getting the word out, whether by print, broadcast, or electronic media, has never been easier. In a country where it is estimated that in 2005 133 million people (1 out of every 2) suffered from a chronic condition it is not surprising that the pharmaceutical companies are taking advantage of technology driven advertisement advancements for product promotion (Center for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2013). Direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertisement, a type of advertisement directed to the public by a pharmaceutical company on the premise that the health of the general public benefits when patients are better educated, is a common practice in the United States PhARM (2008). Through FDA regulation, pharmaceutical companies can create approved drug advertisements geared towards the public. And while an official regulating body is lacking in the fast growing over-the-counter and herbal pharmaceutical market, the advertisement of these non-FDA regulated products is also very much present. Characterized by heartburn and acid regurgitation, gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), is estimated to affect 25-40% of Americans at some point in their lifespan, with 7-10% suffering from daily......

...Using Anti-fungal Agents to Reduce Fungal Contamination for Micropropagation in the Classroom Jason Okazaki Mentor: Roger Shane Gold Department of Biology, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, 55-220 Kulanui St., Laie Hawaii Introduction Micropropagation is a method used for the multiplication of tissue culture in vitro. Fungal contamination is a major problem during explant micropropagation, as fungal growths greatly reduces survival and shoot proliferation. Fungal contamination is especially a problem in undergraduate teaching labs where inexperience and suboptimal culturing conditions tend to amplify the problem. The use of antifungal agents in culture may help alleviate these problems (Brown et al. 1982, Sheilds et al. 1984, Hauptmann et al. 1985, Tynan et al. 1993) . The purpose of this study was to explore the use of antifungal chemicals on Saintpaulia ionantha (African Violet), Daucas carota (Carrot), and Passiflora edulis (Passionfruit) by testing the efficacy of five commonly used antifungal compounds (Miconazole, PPM, Amphotericin B, Benomyl, Nystatin) as gauged by monitoring rates of fungal contamination and explant survival during in vitro micropropagation. Results There was a significant difference between the different antifungals used when comparing explant survival (p=0.011). PPM at 1.5 ml/L showed the best result with 75.0% of P. edulis explants surviving. Conclusions All explants of D. carota were contaminated throughout the experiment. This may......

...Reliant’s requests back to Pacific officials, each time they return they are basically agreeing with whatever Reliant asked for. The relationship they had with Reliant was put first and making the negotiations fair for both sides was not top on the list. . PACIFIC OIL While reading the case study, it was noted that Hauptmann was a relatively new employee to Reliant Chemical Company. Since he is relatively new to Reliant, it means that he knows very little about the working relationship Pacific has with Reliant. It also means that most of what he knows is based on what his co-workers have said. When he approaches the negotiation table he is relatively unprepared and carries a similar mind set that Fontaine and Gaudin do. Hauptmann does not bring any new ideas to the table but just exemplifies what Fontaine and Gaudin feel. Zinnser is the only negotiator who brings some task-oriented ideas to the table. He does some research on fair market prices of VCM and he also talks with other VCM producers. This difference in negotiation tactics helped to define the type of outcome that was seen during the negotiations between Pacific and Reliant. While Zinnser and Hauptmann were negotiating they often got what they asked for and set some sort of boundaries for Reliant. Zinnser makes his demands based on what he has determined he wants and what the company needs. He has little regard for the past relationship that Reliant and Pacific have had in the past. These demands made the......

Pacific Oil Case Study

...for Pacific Oil, and Paul Gaudin began to re-examine the company’s chemical contracts. Upon examination of the Reliant contract, they realized the demand for VCM was rising, and that a new contract could be re-negotiated for a better price. Gaudin contacted Frederich Hauptmann, the senior purchasing manager for Reliant in Europe. From this point, negotiations began. When they first found out about the increased demand for VCM, Fontaine and Gaudin decided to use the two company’s long history together as a leverage point. This point ended up hurting them because Hauptmann asked for a little more concession wise each time the parties met based off the history the two companies had together. Each time, Fontaine and Gaudin agreed to provide these while thinking the negotiation would end with a contract extension like the previous deal with the company. Because of inadequate planning, Fontaine and Gaudin did little to use the power they had over Reliant to secure a more beneficial outcome for Pacific Oil. Because Fontaine and Gaudin were so concerned with the future, they were ready to accept any terms presented by Reliant in order to keep and expand a contract long before the time for negotiation was at hand. Hauptmann and Zinnser approached the contract wanting to win by getting exactly what they wanted. Reliant knew of the changes in supply and demand of VCM and were in the power position to negotiate a contract that met their needs, as well as knowing of competitors to......

Proc 5840 Pacific Oil Case Study

...The Reliant Chemical negotiating team (Zinnser and Hauptmann) utilized a minimum of four out of the ten tactics against Pacific Oil. These tactics seemed to continually keep the Pacific Oil team off balance. In fact, Pacific Oil was astonished by Reliant Chemical’s positions and never realized that their positions were actually tactics. Pacific Oil failed to recognize the overall Reliant course of action was incorporate numerous tactics and techniques to gain concessions from Pacific Oil. Reliant Chemical utilized the tactic of salami or “incrementalism”, which is the art of taking the negotiation and dividing it up into increments or slices. This tactic is especially useful in negotiations that can be divided up into negotiable elements, i.e., a contract. (Lewicki et al. 2010) The VCM contract negotiable elements were: price, quantity, product quality, contract duration, delivery point and credit terms. This coupled with Pacific Oil’s “overconfidence” and “escalation of commitment” would prove to be a very effective use of the “salami” tactic. Pacific Oil was completely unaware of Reliant Chemical’s use of the tactic. (Lewicki et al. 2010) For example, there were six separate uses of the “salami” tactic beginning in March 1985, when Pacific Oil’s negotiating team met with the Reliant negotiating team to discuss the VCM “price” formula. This was followed up in May 1985, when Reliant Chemical negotiator, Hauptmann, met with Pacific Oil negotiator, Gaudin, to......

What Really Happened to the Lindbergh Baby

...all of the investigations, they came down with one principle suspect. A Bronx carpenter by the name of Bruno Richard Hauptmann. He passed a $10 gold certificate at a gas station from the ransom money and this led to his subsequent arrest, trial and finally the death penalty. Ultimately, the police found about $14,000 or more of the ransom money at the suspect’s home. “In newspapers, the case appeared open-and-shut. Hauptmann had entered the United States as a stowaway, with a prison record in Germany for robberies.” ( With no fingerprints that linked Hauptmann to the crime, nothing but circumstantial evidence in the case and the handwriting expert said that Hauptmann was not a match to the ransom note, one would ask how in the world he was convicted in the first place. Attorney General Wilentz had many times tried to persuade witness testimonies. Both of the witnesses that placed Hauptmann at or near the scene of the crime were discredited and paid very nicely for their time. One witness that was called was partially blind but the jury was not told of this. There were people that confirmed the whereabouts of Bruno Hauptmann at the exact time of the kidnapping but were later threatened with arrest and given an offer of money to change their testimony. The Attorney General demanded the death penalty calling Hauptmann “a fellow that had ice water in his veins, not blood…an animal lower than the lowest form in the animal......

New York City Bureau received information from a bank assistant manager that a bank teller received one of the ten dollar bill gold certificate (which was used in the ransom note) which lead to another attendant where the same identical man from the previous place, stop at a local gas station to get gas and was also paid with a ten dollar gold certificate. The attendant wrote down valuable information concerning the suspect license number which populated back to a Bruno Hauptmann who government officials kept a close eye on and took him in custody. Investigators knew what they had to do, and knew they had the right suspect in questioned. They presumed with asking Bruno Hauptmann to write; where there would be a comparison of in handwriting from the ransom note to now, and the comparison was “unbelievable”. The similarities of strokes it takes to make that word or letter was amazing, gave investigator the evidence they needed to hold against him. Another component is the courts where substantial evidence will be used to hold Bruno Hauptmann with the crime. A preliminary hearing would proceed in which will show the court and jury the evidence that is brought before him. The case was taken to trial where Bruno Hauptmann was denied bail but was found guilty and was charged with extortion in September 1943 by the Supreme......

... Although the police did not have much evidence in the beginning they eventually complied a significant about of forensic evidence against Mr. Hauptmann. According to the most important piece of evidence was the wooden ladder that was examined by numerous wood experts. The case was then turned over to the courts to conduct a fair trial. This case highly publicized because Hauptmann’s defense was paid for by the New York Journal in exchange for the rights to the story. Some would say that the trial was not fair because it was based solely on circumstantial evidence and there were also violations of handwriting analysis protocol. Mr. Hauptmann was instructed by the police to write more statements and told him the spelling of certain words. During this process they also had him to copy copies of the ransom notes. In my personal opinion the courts were extremely flawed in this case. Hauptmann’s lead counsel Edward J Reilly, publicly announced that he thought Hauptmann was guilty. He had also been consuming alcohol at lunch during the trial (Ramsland 2009, FBI 2013).The corrections agencies now has the duty to carry out the sentencing executed by the courts which was death. During Hauptmann’s arraignment he was advised of his charges of murder. At that time he plead not guilty and was denied bail. At some point Hauptmann asked to be allowed to undertake a polygraph test but his legal counsel saw no significance in doing so. The federal appeals court had already...

Unit 6 easy and suitable to exit through the rectum. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid flows back into your esophagus, the reflux irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD. GERD symptoms include a burning sensation in your chest, sometimes spreads to the throat, chest pain, difficulty swallowing, dry cough, hoarseness or sore throat. If you have to take heartburn meds more than twice a week or experience frequent GERD symptoms, then you need to see a doctor. “When you swallow, the lower esophageal sphincter relaxes to allow food and liquid to flow down into your stomach” (Staff, 2013). Is this is weakened, stomach acid can flow back up into the esophagus causing heartburn. Diagnosis of GERD is based on your symptoms, a test to monitor the amount of acid in your esophagus, an X-ray of your upper digestive system, a flexible tube to look inside your esophagus, or a test to measure the movement of the esophagus. Treatment usually begins with over-the-counter meds such as antacids and H-2-receptor blockers. Sometimes you may need a prescription strength H-2-receptor blockers, if neither works then surgery is recommended. Living with GERD can affect your everyday life a whole lot. You will have to watch what you eat, make sure you’re not eating too fast.

Lindberg Baby Kidnapping

...Upon questioning the suspects the Lindbergh family, the Household staff, and Bruno Richard Hauptmann, the police discovered the serial number from the ransom money had surfaced only a few days after it was paid to the kidnappers. On 15 September 1934, in New York City, a service station attendant had taken a gold certificate in payment for five gallons of gas but recorded the registration number of the vehicle.  This vehicle was registered to Bruno Richard Hauptmann (FBI 2016). However, the physical descriptions matched the ‘John’ provided by Condon of whom he paid the ransom and the description by the service station attendant matched Hauptmann, so he was taken into custody (FBI 2016). Hauptmann was searched by police and a gold certificate linked to the ransom was found in his wallet but claimed, Isador Fisch, had given him the money before leaving the USA for Germany where Fisch had died soon after arrival. Investigators had probable cause to search Hauptmann’s garage and found $14,000 in gold certificates that was part of the paid ransom (FBI 2016). When compared with other samples of his writing, words that were misspelled in the writings were correctly spelt in his writings. The knottiness with the script comparing did not catch with the incorrect practice of investigators, another handwriting expert concluded from Fisch’s handwriting that he had written the ransom notes. Hauptmann gave evidence within his defense, it was not his voice that was heard by Condon,......
