What was McDonald’s duty to its customer?

Part 2:
<
<
In January 2001 a New York man attended a family birthday party at a Benihana restaurant, where chefs, while cooking at the table, routinely throw pieces of food for diners to catch with their mouths. The New York man wrenched his neck while ducking a piece of flying shrimp, requiring treatment by several doctors. By that summer, doctors determined surgery was necessary to treat numbness in his arm. Five months after surgery, he checked into the hospital with a high fever and died. The family sued Benihana for $10 million in damages, claiming that the fever was the result of surgery, which in turn was the result of the chef’s actions in throwing food at diners.

What do they represent?

Assignement 2
After reading Bulgakov’s novel “Heart of a Dog” answer the following questions. Make sure to reference specific examples from the text (using quotes with page numbers would be the most effective but not mandatory) – minimum 15 sentences total.
The novel : https://archive.org/details/MikhailBulgakovTheHeartOfADogAndOtherStories/page/n1/mode/2up
NOTE: Be specific in your posts and comments and reference specific details from the text. I deduct points for vague answers.
Questions:
-Find the examples of satirical portrayal of Bolsheviks in the novel. What do they say about Bulgakov’s attitude toward the October Revolution of 1917? How did you figure out the satirical nature of these examples?
-Find examples of symbolism. What do they represent? – If nothing else, you should start with the analysis of the title. Why is the novel titled “Heart of a Dog” and not, for example, “Brain of a human” which would be true as well? What constitutes the major attributes of Sharikov’s personality and why? How much is it a responsibility of the doctors? What about other factors? Why did transformation fail? What does this failed transformation represent symbolically? What symbols from the novel can be applied to our times, in your opinion?
-Who narrates the story and why did Bulgakov choose such a style of narration? – From whose point of view is the story narrated in the beginning and why? How does it change and when?
Thank you ^-^

Would you please read and write a brief response/replay for the following short article?
<
The Christian’s Responsibility to the Geopolitical World
<
<
It is certainly no secret that the world is becoming more globally connected than it has ever been. Because of this, it only makes sense that Christians should evaluate their responsibility to the geopolitics and reconcile those responsibilities to the mandates of the gospel. According to Jeremy Black in his work Geopolitics and the Quest for Dominance, the term “geopolitics” is an “amorphous concept.”[1] No exact definition has been agreed up, although nearly all scholars agree that it implies a relationship between politics and geographical features. According to researcher Ola Tunander, the term was originally coined by political analysts Rudolf Kjellén and Fredrick Ratzel, who together founded the German geopolitical school.[2] Ratzel actually coined the word lebensraum, although he was never a member of the NAZI Party or a follower of Hitler. Kjellen envisioned a political alliance that was similar to what NATO is today.

The assigned video this week discusses themes in the book City of God by Augustine of Hippo.[3] This insightful work offers the reader a thoughtful view of two cities, one of which is on earth and the other, as Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress calls it, is the “Celestial City” in heaven. Augustine argues that the Christians who live in the earthly city must maintain an eternal perspective. They must keep their eyes on the celestial city and work to bring its values into the tangible world in which they live.
<
<
Augustine’s admonishment nicely sums up the responsibility of Christians to the geopolitical world. In many ways, the Christian’s responsibility to their own country is not vastly different from their responsibility to other countries around the globe. In a perfect world, all nations would live in harmony with one another. They would work together to create an enjoyable life for all citizens everywhere. However, the world is far from perfect, and many nations of the world live in a perpetual state of conflict. Many factors contribute to these problems, including cultural, linguistic, and religious barriers. Economic ideologies such as Marxism have also created profound divisions. Because of this, Christians are inadvertently placed in the middle of political struggles. They can choose to take a position and stand for what they believe to be right. However, they might also choose to pray and allow the sovereign Lord to fight the battle. They might also choose to do nothing. Out of these three options, prayer seems to be the logical course of action This is because the Bible states that the Lord is the one who raises up and removes kings. Christians must trust that God is working out his will and way in all circumstances, including those in the geopolitical world. The Bible states in 1 Timothy 2:1-2, “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” While it may seem a little cliché to pray for world peace, it sounds like that is exactly what believers are instructed to do. While it may not be realized this side of heaven, it is certainly something to look forward to.

What do you think is the role of “mysticism” or a more spiritual approach when considering environmental issues? Do you think these elements are useful when formulating a theoretical approach to the issues confronting the environment? Can you explain why the environmental movement escalated in the 1960s—coinciding, by the way, with other cultural awakenings? Define “environmental ethics; what role do ethics play in environmental activism? Or do you think that a rigorous, scientific, fact-based approach is the only truly appropriate way to proceed?
