Abstract: Asian economic miracle refers to three groups of East Asian countries making miracle in transforming their economies from the third world to the first world ranking. There are three generations of Asian miracle. Starting with Japan, the first generation of what called Asian miracle, following with the second generation including South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan, and final generation consists of some Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia. This paper is going to talk about the second generation of Asian economic miracle. By showing their economic achievement, illustrating their economic policies, and analyzing how the economic trend of 20th century reflected on those policies, this paper will argue that Asian miracle was the result of the wise choices of how to manage an economy. Furthermore, developing countries should learn the lessons of how to choose the right economic policies to make economic miracle.

Asian Economic Miracle: The Wisely Chosen Economic Policies and The Economic Trend of 20th Century Introduction According to the East Asian Miracle (EAM, World Bank, 1993), “East Asia has a remarkable record of high and sustained economic growth. From 1965 to 1990 the twenty-three economies of East Asia grew faster than all other regions of the world.” The eight Asian economies: Japan, the “Four Tigers” including Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore, and the newly industrializing countries (NICs) of Southeast Asia including Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia, contributed mostly to the above achievement (EAM, World Bank, 1993). Moreover, since 1960, those eight economies had achieved the growth of…...

...Sign Miracles Paper | BIBL 323 D17 201240 | Rev. Abdue L. Knox, I L22937066 | And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. John 20:30-31 NKJV Everywhere Jesus went people were amazed at His miraculous powers. The Apostle John uses Jesus miracles as an organizing principle in his gospel. He calls them semeia, or “signs” indicating that each miracle was a concrete demonstration of Jesus’ divinity and messiah ship. The purpose of the signs were to produce belief as they did for the disciples at the wedding at Cana (John 2:11) and the household of the Nobleman (John 4:53). But these same miracles would incite anger and violence as in the case of healing the man born blind in John 11. (Earl D. Radmacher 1997) The first sign miracle Jesus performed in John’s Gospel was changing water into wine found in John 2:1-12. Jesus and His new disciples arrived at a wedding celebration that had already begun. Mary the mother of Jesus came to Him and told Him that the wine had run out. “Mary was simply informing him of the need, not ordering Him. Her statement is in fact much like a prayer made to Jesus. She knew he could do something.” (Towns 2002) Jesus directed the servants to fill six water pots, which he then turned into wine. “The changing of water into wine is surely meant...

Why! who makes much of a miracle?
As to me, I know of nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or wade with naked feet along the beach, just in the edge of the
Or stand under trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with any one I love--or sleep in the bed at night with
any one I love,
Or sit at table at dinner with my mother,
Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,
Or watch honey-bees busy around the hive, of a summer forenoon, 10
Or animals feeding in the fields,
Or birds--or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,
Or the wonderfulness of the sun-down--or of stars shining so quiet
and bright,
Or the exquisite, delicate, thin curve of the new moon in spring;
Or whether I go among those I like best, and that like me best--
mechanics, boatmen, farmers,
Or among the savans--or to the soiree--or to the opera,
Or stand a long while looking at the movements of machinery,
Or behold children at their sports,
Or the admirable sight of the perfect old man, or the perfect old
Or the sick in hospitals, or the dead carried to burial, 20
Or my own eyes and figure in the glass;
These, with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles,
The whole referring--yet each distinct, and in its place.

To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the
Every foot of the interior swarms...

...Historical Film Prompt: Miracle The film Miracle is about the U.S men’s ice hockey team winning the 1980 gold metal for the Winter Olympics, led by head coach Herb Brooks. Miracle was fairly accurate with its historic content during the course of the movie. The director Gavin O’Connor did a good job tying in historical and political background that brought the film together, which made it unique to other sport films. In the beginning of the film there was a sequence highlighting the historical events that lead up to the 1980 Winter Olympics. Miracle specifically opened up with the historical footage against the Vietnam War in the 1960s. Our country endured the time where it was divided because of the support of the Vietnam War. To make things worst, the 1970’s was also a hard time for the United States. The United States had to deal President Richard Nixon’s Watergate Scandal during the year of 1974. A scene in the movie showed a headline saying “5 were arrested in connection to GOP.” Later stating that President Richard Nixon had resigned from office, making him the first president to step down. And the following years lead up to another problem known as the hostage crisis in Iran during 1979 to the 80’s. The film also accurately portrayed the oil crises in the film multiple times. The oil crisis was mentioned early on in the film and in the middle when the coaches were at a gas station filling up their bus. At the gas station there was a sign that announced that the gas......

...Miracle Miracle Introduction The movie that I have chosen to write about was the movie “Miracle”. The movie miracle has many different types of cultural differences that are not that easily seen at a first glance. However, when you watch the movie more than once you can begin to see the cultural differences that occur in the movie. The cultural differences that I was able to see from this movie were Jim Craig’s miscommunication with coach, Jim Craig’s father’s miscommunication, the different styles of play between the Soviet’s and the US, and the difference between USA and Soviets players. The first cultural difference that occurred in the movie was easy to see and hear. Jim Craig, who was the goaltender, had his mother pass away leaving just his father to support him. In the opening scene in the movie, the hockey committee is having tryouts to form together a hockey to team to compete in the Olympics. When Herb Brooks, the head coach of team USA, is scouting his players, the assistant coach says, “Why is Craig starting over Janacek, his mother died and his game has been off ever since” (O’Connor)? Herb then replies, “Have you ever seen him when his game is on” (O’Connor). As the movie goes on, Jim Craig makes the team and Herb Brooks has everyone take a test, to see how hard he can push them. However, Craig does not take the test. When Herb goes to Craig’s room to ask him why he didn’t take the test, Herb could tell that something wasn’t......

Miracle Economies

...Miracle Economies Introduction: India’s record GDP growth of 8.49% per year in the five-year period 2004-09 is a case of improved productivity and | growth in states trickling up and aggregating into rapid growth at the national level. The acceleration did not originate in New Delhi. It originated in the states, especially the large, poor ones, and then trickled up. We have long viewed some states like Gujarat and Maharashtra as naturally fast-growing, and others like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh as irredeemable failures. We are used to thinking of Kerala as having good social welfare without growth, and of Punjab as the main economic dynamo north of the Vindhyas. Growth of Miracle economies: India achieved record annual GDP growth, averaging 8.45%, in the five years, 2004-05 to 2008-09. Historically, the chronically poor states were Orissa plus the BIMARU quartet (Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh), of which three have been sub-divided. These eight poor states participated in India’s boom. Indeed, five of India’s eight ultra-poor states have become miracle economies, defined internationally as those with over 7% growth. The best news comes from Bihar, historically the biggest failure. From 2004-05 to2008-09, Bihar averaged 11.03% growth annually. It was virtually India’s fastest growing state, on par with Gujarat (11.05%). That represents a sensational turnaround. Other poor states have done very well too. Uttrakhand (9.31%), Orissa (8.74%), Jharkhand......

...During my first encounter with Miracle in Cell No. 7, I burst out into laughter because of Lee Yong Goo, the father of Yea Song, because he’s like a kid. I admire him because every sacrifices he’s doing is all for the sake of her child’s happiness. Even thought he’s childish, he never fail to take good care of his daughter. I am also glad with Yea Song, because even though her father acts like a kid, she always manages to wear a smile at all times and he loves her father extremely. But when Lee Yong Goo had been accused with the crime he never did, the joy in my face faded and replaced with a sad expression. I got pissed because Lee Yong Goo didn’t got the justice he deserves. Authority accused him directly without even asking what was really happened. Tears came rushing from my eyes when the moment Yea Song saw his father being pushed on a police vehicle. She’s crying so hard, because she isn’t aware of what was happening. All that she knows is, he’s father is not in a good situation. I also got annoyed with Lee Yong Goo because all he’s saying in that very moment is only the name of her daughter. Not clarifying everything unto Yea Song. I pity them because I know that it’s hard to be apart with the ones you love, most especially with those who’s always there by your side.

East Asian Miracle

...International Political Science 8 October, 2013 World Bank: The East Asian Miracle The East Asian Miracle is described as a historic series of events and policies that led to the economic growth of twenty-three East-Asian economies from the 1960s to the 1990s. Each economy was impacted differently thus the most important due to the degree of change would be: Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, China, Malaysia and Thailand. A combination of many policies and government turned these developing nations into industrial leaders of the world. These changes didn’t occur without government stimulation and policy changes, some of which were directed towards market and some towards state. Each policy had to be tailored to a country’s specific dilemma, many of these countries suffered from different problems and had to be addressed as such. Eventually, each of these led to many outcomes which together became the rapid growth of the Eastern Asian economies such as: increase of real income per capita, balancing the margin between income inequalities, human welfare, and more. Government intervention and actions are usually a good thing depending on what the desired outcome is, but too much of it can be detrimental to the welfare of the economy. A balanced amount of stimulation was needed in order to get the economy going, such as limited government spending to limit deficits. A statement from the book that directly relates to the focus of these reforms is “The......

...Hume defines miracles as ‘violations of the laws of nature’ which leads him to reject their existence, as by definition, they are beyond the realms of reasonable belief. In defence of miracles, Swinburne challenges some of Hume’s practical arguments. Hume claims miracles only occur among uneducated and ignorant people, suggesting a lack of convincing testimony. Swinburne questions how you define when people are educated and what level of education is required to give ‘reliable’ testimony of a miracle, underlining Hume’s vagueness. It could mean that people lack a familiarity with science as Hume suggests, but this fails to explain why many people who are clearly educated still attest to experiencing miracles. However, historical evidence is used to support Hume’s case. It is evident that as the nation develops and becomes more educated, the number of reported miracles disappear. Swinburne also criticises Hume’s proposition that contradictory reports of miracles occurring in different religions cancel each other out. Swinburne condemns the view that miracles in any religion prove the truth of one religious belief correct over another. He points out the majority of reported miracles by theists involve God helping someone, for instance through healing. Instead of this being contradictory, they perhaps simultaneously verify the belief in a common benevolent God, validating miracles. Furthermore, Hume’s definition of a miracle is criticised as he places emphasis on the fixed...

...(a) Outline the key concepts of miracle and examine the main reasons to believe in miracles The world miracle derive from the Latin word ‘miror’ which means I wonder at. Miracles is a posterior and inductive argument. There are three key concepts of miracles which are it should break the law of nature, it must have purpose and significance and it should be open to religious and spiritual understanding. The definition associated with miracles comes from David Hume stating “a miracle is a transgression of a law of nature by a particular violation of the deity”. One key concept of miracles comes from Thomas Aquinas a 13th century philosopher whom believed in a realist view of miracles and states “things that are done occasionally by divine power apart from the order generally followed in things”. He proposed three categories, the first rank which are events done by god that nature and humans can logically not do such as Jesus walking on water. The second rank are events done by god that nature could do but not in that order for example the resurrection of Jesus. The third ranks are events done by god that nature can do but god does without the use of natural laws such as the healing of Peter’s mother-in-law in the chapter of Nark in the bible. This is one of the key concepts of miracles as Aquinas ranks are consistent with religious tradition. There are two concepts of miracles one of which is a realist view where miracles actual do have to have happened to be meaningful and......

They are milder in flavor than the bulbs,[3] and are most often consumed while immature and still tender. Immature garlic is sometimes pulled, rather like a scallion, and sold as "green garlic".[22] When green garlic is allowed to grow past the "scallion" stage, but not permitted to fully mature, it may produce a garlic "round", a bulb like a boiling onion, but not separated into cloves like a mature bulb.[23] It imparts a garlic flavor and aroma in food, minus the spiciness. Green garlic is often chopped and stir-fried or cooked in soup or hotpot in Southeast Asian (ie. Vietnamese, Thai, Lao, Cambodian,Singaporean) and Chinese cookery, and is very abundant and low-priced.

Sign Miracles

...Liberty University BIBL 323 The Eight Sign Miracles of Jesus There are four Gospels in the New Testament, and each seemingly written to a different audience base that show different aspects to deity. There are a total of 37 different miracles attributed to Jesus during his years of ministry on earth; although, there are only eight miracles detailed in the Gospel of John. John is considered to be more sectarian and exclusive than the other three gospels. This book was written to convey and convince all those who read it of the Deity of Jesus. The author tells us in John 20, “And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name”. So, it is in this Gospel of John where depictions of extraordinary events that cannot be explained by natural or scientific laws is articulated in written form to beautifully show forth the divine nature of Jesus the Christ. The first sign miracle that John uses takes place at a wedding in Cana. Jesus was attending a wedding along with his disciples and mother. This was possibly a wedding for one of his family members because his mother was overseeing the duties of the caterers. According to John, a problem arose when the party had run out of wine to serve, and Mary the mother of Jesus, came to him for help. At this point, Jesus seemingly......

...Pedro Mccalley Miracle Final Assignment I actually remember this when it happened not the importance to the country but the energy and excitement at the time. To start the movie Herb Brooks is setting goals before he even gets the job. After all the years of embarassment play by the U.S.A he felt a new strategy and outlook was needed. He wanted to implement a hybrid of the Russians and Canada to change the way they played. Goal setting is important even for a coach so they challenge themselves as well as the team. Coach Brooks in the beginning had to overcome the doubters to show the committee he was not just another coach and wanted to do it all his way. He chose the team and set his roster without the approval of the council. He took the players he wanted and worked them harder than ever before. From the beginning there was a lot of sport socialization were players from same universities stuck together. You had rival universities from Minnesota, North Dakota Boston University and UMass. Coach Brooks chose his team without consulting any advisors and explained to his assistant as “I’m not looking for the best just the right ones’. This was one of the ways he was looking to change the team. Two rivals on the team get into a fight. Before this you could see how this affected one of the top stars who had the issue. You can see how the fight early on between the two rivals helped to end the disparity and let them get back to the hockey. This helped their team building so......
