For money or for virtue? This is a question that many lawyers and politicians must make. For people in jobs like these, they are put in a position in which they are forced to decide either to do what they believe is right, or do what will guarantee them another paycheck. The case brief "A Life for a Life?" is about a House Member named Manny who needs to make a decision to vote for or against a bill that will get the death-penalty statute off the books in Florida (A Life for a Life). With second term elections coming up, and outside opinions clashing, Manny needs to make a firm decision. According to Virtue Ethics and Aristotle’s Philosophy, it would be unethical and, therefore, wrong for Manny to approve the bill that will get the death-penalty statute off the books in Florida because it would be going against key virtues in Manny’s life.
Yes, Pokémon is a game designed for children and it can be picked up by anyone and easily played. However, once you have finished the story mode and want more, you’ll be taking on a whole new monster.

To fully understand a piece of writing, you must look at the original message of the writing. The only way to do that accurately is to understand the social situation in which the writing was created. The social situation will influence any piece of work, as well as influence the way we understand the work. This is no different for the understanding the Bible, more specifically the Book of Revelation. Thus, to understand the Book of Revelation, we must first find the social situation that John was in when he wrote the Book of Revelation. This includes the happenings of the Church, of the Roman Empire, and of John’s own life.
John, the author of the Book of Revelation, specifically called his book a prophecy (Rev. 1:19). Since John referred to his writing as prophetic, an understanding of it must be approached as such. There are five basic ways of interpreting biblical prophecies: futuristic, historical, exhortative, idealistic, and preterite. Each approach is different and has its own strengths and weaknesses, especially when it comes to the interpretation of the Book of Revelation.
