Explain why it is important in moving today’s economy forward, and provide at least two real examples of the chosen core function being changed by blockchain technology today. Then think of three questions you’d like to ask other students and add these to the end of your thread. (block chain revolution text book)- Attached are the core functions – you can write the answer from attached Describe the use case that aligns most closely with your current job role, including how blockchain technology would change things that you currently do in your job. If you are not working in a job role that aligns nicely with a use case presented in chapter 1, describe a job role that you would like to hold after finishing your degree program, and how blockchain technology may affect those job functions.
Frankenstein. Indeed, the creature commits several horrid acts, which drives Frankenstein to pursue him into the Arctic. Yet the creature does not inspire the same fear or revulsion in the reader; instead he garners sympathy. While Frankenstein may beg to differ, the reader connects with the monster because he is isolated from the world and-surprisingly-has a gentle heart. The monster is certainly not blameless. He kills William, Clerval and Elizabeth - people who are dear to Frankenstein - within a short period of time. These deaths drive Frankenstein to near-madness. He calls on the "spirits of the dead" and "wandering ministers" so that the "cursed and hellish monster drink deep of agony" and feel "the despair that now torments me" (179). The monster is also capable of wanton destruction when he burns down the DeLaceys' house and dances "with fury around the devoted cottage" (123) like a savage. Finally, the monster seems to enjoy the pain he causes Frankenstein: "your sufferings will satisfy my everlasting hatred" (181) he writes to Victor. Were these pieces of evidence taken out of context, the reader would surely side with Frankenstein. But Shelley prevents such one-sidedness by letting the monster tell his version of the story. The monster's first-person narrative draws the reader in and one learns that the creature is not the abomination his creator claims. The creature first gains the reader's sympathy because he is utterly isolated. While articulate and emotional, the creature has no one with whom to interact. Alone from birth, Victor flees at first sight of him, the creature's first memories are painful. "I was a poor, helpless, miserable wretch; I knew, and could distinguish, nothing; but feeling pain invade me on all sides, I sat down and wept," he says (92). Were he human, the creature would likely benefit from the "hearts of men" which De Lacey says are capable of "brotherly love and charity" (119). Unfortunately, regardless of where the creature goes, his grotesque features inspire only fear and revulsion. His first interaction with humans is violent: in search of food, the creature enters a village and soon finds himself "grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons" (95). Likewise, the De Laceys, whom the monster admires for their "grace, beauty, and delicate complexions" (102) assault the creature when he is discovered in their home; Felix strikes him "violently with a stick" (120). Notably, the monster does not retaliate against these actions. He admits he could have torn Felix "limb from limb as the lion rends the antelope" but his "heart sank . . . with bitter sickness and [he] refrained" (120). Indeed, the monster feels disgusted just by looking at himself. When he sees his reflection in a pool of water he is "filled with the bitterest sensations of despondence and mortification" (102). Abhorred at his appearance and shunned by humanity, the creature seeks out the only person with whom he has a connection - his creator. The creature's isolation from Victor is especially painful to read. Since no other human will interact with him, the monster is forced to seek out the man who "endowed [him] with perceptions and passions, and then cast [him] abroad an object for the scorn and horror of mankind" (124). When they first meet, the creature does not ask much from Victor. "I was benevolent and good; misery made me a fiend. Make me happy, and I shall again be virtuous," (89) he implores Frankenstein. He even offers to be "mild and docile to [his] natural lord and king" (89) if Victor were only to stop his suffering and create a female companion. For a brief moment, Victor feels sympathy for his creation - he admits he is "moved" by the creature's tale and understands that "the feelings [the monster] now expressed, proved him to be a creature of fine sensations" (13
