Sustainable Perspectives Undoubtedly, for some people, the future teems with choices, great, exciting opportunities, and enhanced comfort.

Twenty-first century kids eventually have the greatest stakes in the world's future, and will be subject to the repercussions of current environmental, economic, and social actions and decisions.

2008). Laub and Sampson's answer made use of life-course developmental principles. In specific, they discovered that, problematic children who were set right in adulthood underwent a turning point -- some life circumstance or event like marriage, a stable, respectable job, or a military post, which transformed them from delinquents to responsible, law-abiding citizens. Military service brought discipline and structure into the boys' lives. Matrimony and employment brought stability as well as a need to follow the straight course if they wished to sustain their marriage and employment.

Social Bonding Theory

can be ascertained from babyhood through early childhood, based on the lack or strength of parent-child ties. children of parents who are inattentive to them right from birth can end up being oriented into negative behavioral patterns and having an irreparably damaged mind. But how do we explain those who feel no guilt or remorse whatsoever? In psychopathic theorists' opinion, a potential biological sign exists that it is impossible for such individuals to correct their criminal propensities (Stinchcombe, 2005). Suc males will inflict violence upon their spouse and upon other human beings. Their indifference to the sorrow and agony… Continue Reading...

Australian Curriculum

are much harder for a certain child as compared to other children of the same age and country of residence, the educational needs for that special needs student will obviously be much higher just to get the same overall results and outcomes, all else equal. The verdict when it comes to how the Australian Curriculum does when it comes to these students can only be described as being full of "tension and opportunity" rather than being represented by a glowing review (Garner & Forbes, 2015). One consideration that really does have to be taken seriously when it comes to… Continue Reading...

Congress Vs the Public Library

violate the First Amendment. This ruling provided the groundwork for the children's Internet Protection Act to take full effect. In 2000, Congress passed the CIPA or the children's Internet Protect Act. This law served as the main issue for the 2003 case. In order for public libraries to qualify for and receive federal aid for internet access, they must install web filtering software.

How Does Heroin Impact a Caucasian Family

greater priority by a user, over other behaviors he/she prioritized earlier (Brown, 2004). Typically, Caucasian households greatly influence children's attitudes, behaviors, and values. However, one needs to answer the question of how family values compare with peers in case a youngster's peer group engages in drug abuse. Peer group influence, which is normally stronger during youth, can sometimes surpass family influence. One researcher found that the most common characteristic among Caucasian peer groups is their consumption of bhang. Parental and peer influence was found to be collaborative. The highest Caucasian marijuana consumption cases were adolescents whose friends and parents themselves… Continue Reading...

Analyzing Critical Criminology

a reasonable option for solving problems that they face. The researchers show that children that have close relations with violent groups increasingly accept violence as part of the problem solving strategies by constant exposure and indoctrination. children often hold leaders of the violent groups they know about in high esteem and idolize them. Such children often end up joining the violent groups. Homicide is the consequence of these trends. Thus, the subculture theories remain relevant.

Violence Against Women in Macho Paradox

understand the fight is their fight as well. If men become involved in the movement, laws will be passed, children will be raised to see violence against women is wrong and will make a much longer lasting impact than simply labeling it a women's issue. Violence against women is often described using passive language. Katz notes in a later chapter the Janet Jackson incident and the failure of reporters to include any reference to Justin Timberlake. Justin Timberlake is the other half of the reason why Janet Jackson bared her bosom to the world. "...he reached across Jackson's gladiator-type… Continue Reading...

Minimum Literacy Skills in the 21st Century

to agreeing with the major point of this report, they also agree that the way in which children are taught plays a huge part in how well a student is able to embrace and learn science facets and lessons.

However, there are things that are entirely basic and impossible to argue with and the rights of blacks as demanded by Rosa Parks and others is indeed one example. Even if there is subtlety, basic stories can teach huge lessons. References Flashinski, L. (2012). In What Light There Is: Turtles, burps and protest. Journal Times.

The Effect Of Heroin on White America

war on drugs has shifted: now, as it is their own children and family members who are being affected by the drug, they are calling for "a more forgiving approach." This indicates that effect of heroin use on Caucasian families has been to increase their awareness of the problem of drugs overall and how addiction leads to downward spirals -- how incarceration does not directly address the problem, and how better steps can be taken to help individuals hooked on heroin.

Patriarchs and Dysfunctional Families in the Bible

Biblical text. The story of Abraham's two women, the mothers of his children, has become the seed metaphor for the schism between seminal Semitic peoples. Even though it would not be for many centuries, the evolution of Islam clarified the sharp differences between the matriarchal model exemplified by Sarah's seemingly miraculous mothering of Isaac and the patriarchal model denoted by Hagar's carrying Ishmael, the symbolic patriarch of what would later become Islam. Jealousy and other petty, negative human emotions are almost celebrated in the Biblical narrative. The "traditioning" of family dysfunction also becomes a tacit approval of selfishness and… Continue Reading...

Once the recruitment base of Boko Haram has been dried, it would make the Boko Haram prisoners all the more important to them as it would be hard to replace such members (Siollun, 2015). The government could also find Boko Haram splinter groups that are disgruntled and lure them to cooperate for intelligence purposes. Such groups might facilitate negotiation. The authorities should avoid pooling all Muslims with Boko Haram. Even those perceived… Continue Reading...

degree, the absence of which such as, good looks, good descent, good children etc., can ruin the supreme happiness. Aristotle also questions the source of this happiness, which he considers to be divine. But, he also asserts that however happiness is divine, "but comes as a result of virtue and some process of learning and training" (35). Therefore, as happiness depends on excellence, it can be accessed by anyone through effort and study, whose capability for virtue is undamaged. It is rational therefore to assume that happiness is attained through this manner rather than by chance, but this kind… Continue Reading...

Still, technology is widely employed by my generation and one of the primary means of communicating with people through avenues such as social media, mobile devices, and the internet.

adopted by preschoolers. Hence, a caregiver's views of other racial and ethnic groups may shape children's attitudes towards racial/ethnic minorities. • Early childhood instructors may elicit positive attitudes among preschoolers through getting to know and promoting their pupils' diverse cultures. • Preschoolers may begin stereotyping other cultures if their elders fail to highlight the similarities among human beings (Teaching with a Multicultural Perspective Article). An issue underlying the existing emphasis of multicultural education at the preschool level is its lack of focus (or inadequate focus) on teaching kids to identify victimization of fellow human beings because of bigoted societal… Continue Reading...

The show perhaps invites people to reach for their own ideologies in life vicariously through the main characters. Althusser discusses ideologies in his piece, "Ideology and Ideological State Apparatuses" and Bell Hooks examines desire and resistance in "Eating the Other: Desire and Resistance" that can point towards a better understanding… Continue Reading...

in the areas of childbearing and raising, societal transformation, production, and community management. Reproducing, bringing children up and assuming domestic responsibilities are regarded as natural tasks for females. Even in instances where the patriarch is negligent, the wife in a Nigerian household will continue bearing child-raising responsibilities as they feel this is both their natural and cultural obligation (Chigbu, 2015).

Oswald's therapist concluded that he suffered from "personality pattern disruption, passive-aggressive behavior and schizoid features." He was also emotional and quite troubled while he was young.

unquestioned submission. In some instances, a slave was forced to whip another slave. Wives and husbands or parents and children could be made to whip one another. Some masters were so cruel they even whipped the small children of the slaves. The situation was very gross as the slaves did not have any formal channels to seek redress. [footnoteRef:12] [12: ibid, 258] Slaves' freedom of worship was not respected since 'niggers' were not allowed in churches. Preachers would come to their quarters and preach to them. Often times, the preachers only talked about obedience to masters and the need… Continue Reading...

Challenges Of Nigerian Writers in English

is the need for new literature and authors, especially in the children- and gender- focused genres, for enabling the nation to achieve an enviable global techno-literary position (Taye Awoyemi-Arayela, 2013). Though publishing is considered rather unimportant from an economic standpoint, it is highly vital to a nation's academic, cultural, and intellectual life. Further, knowledge products' creation and distribution is crucial to all civilizations. I believe it forms a central component of the emerging knowledge sector network as well, which proves highly valuable to postindustrial nations. It is, therefore, unsurprising that the WHO's (World Trade Organization's) latest trade negotiations debated… Continue Reading...

Pledge for Homeless Families in Seattle

In June of 1998, Mayor Paul Schell made a pledge that there would be no homeless families with children or homeless single women on the streets of Seattle by Christmas of 1998." (Norton, 2006). The pledge by Mayor Schell can be accomplished within six months as he indicated though there are several potential challenges that need to be overcome. This problem relates to receiving immediate funding for shelter and assistance. Moreover, homeless families may have been on the streets for a long time and they may feel uncomfortable… Continue Reading...

The NCPPC (North Country Prenatal/Prenatal Council) and North Country children's Clinic WIC situated in New York's Watertown city are fine examples of community agencies that offer services and programs for breastfeeding women. These agencies determine breastfeeding obstacles, and apply strategies for increasing women's opportunities as well as awareness of the advantages of breastfeeding. Furthermore, they teach mothers how to plan ahead, right from discussing their present situation with the organization and seeking maternity leave, to discussing their schedule change with superiors and considering child care facilities in close proximity to their workplace.… Continue Reading...

Aboriginal Perspective and the Secret River

However, the following morning the corn patch has been burnt down. To Williams this was an act not only of vandalism, but one which was designed to humiliate and degrade him, so he reacted in line with his culture and the laws he was used to; protecting his land with a gun.

Juvenile Probation

in the preferred sentence as imprisonment is considered particularly harmful to children's physical and mental wellbeing. Probation counts among the 'family of instruments', that law enforcers employ for reducing juvenile delinquency levels. History, Duties and Responsibilities of Juvenile Probation Officers The 'juvenile probation' sentence, in fact, predates the United States' very first exclusive juvenile court. The state of Massachusetts had officially begun enforcing probation as the dispositional option for juvenile delinquents, by enabling suspended sentences, in the year 1878. Law-breaking children would be let free provided they undertook to not commit offense again in the course of their probation.… Continue Reading...

Psy600 Week 2 Assignment

Psychology purposes and endeavors to elucidate the change that comes about in both children and adults in the course of time. I have decided to focus and lay emphasis on this topic as it is during this particular period when the most change takes place in the course of a person's lifespan (Mcleod, 2012). Further, the topic "Developmental changes in parent-child communication throughout adolescence," lays emphasis on the individual changes and variations in the patterns of change between the association that exists between the child and the parent in the course of adolescence. Particularly important is the fact that… Continue Reading...

Why Shelters Have More Female Volunteers

Altruism begets more altruism, which is why animal shelters would then be advised to recruit children and young adults. Arguably, children instinctually enjoy the company of animals. Cultivating a child's innate sense of caring for pets through shelter work or at-home fostering of rescue animals may help volunteer-run animal welfare societies recruit part-time or full-time volunteers throughout their lifetime and retain those unpaid employees. This research is important not just to illuminate gender differences; in fact, gender differences is secondary to the more primary significance of animal shelters and the work they do in promoting animal rights, reducing the… Continue Reading...

The Things They Carried by Tim O’brien

the war of Vietnam. Organizations in charge of recruitment into the military drafted the middle-class children into the army while their more affluent mates attended college. Most youths from affluent and famous backgrounds were left out of the recruitment and only a very small number came forward. Therefore, one of America's most disliked conflicts was fought mostly by the teenage kids of factory workers, drivers, secretaries, wood-workers etc. (Appy 252) The conventional norms of war were not followed in Vietnam, firstly the enemy didn't pose any form of danger to the Americans, the reason for the war wasn't clear… Continue Reading...

The Secret Lion by Alberto Alvaro Rios Review

their mother would ask them to "get rid of it" (Rios 1). The import of these acts is that children make decisions consciously and look up to their seniors to accept and approve them; which, unfortunately, does not usually happen. Therefore, children are forced to find alternatives. The boys tried as much as they could to keep their ball safe but somehow it vanished. The incident is symbolic and signifies the innocence that children try to treasure and keep but lose it all the same. The reader is made to observe the behavior changes that occur in the boys… Continue Reading...

This report shall explore the precise and specific reasons that these birth defects why it is more common for women beyond the line stated in this proposal. Even with the increasing propensity of women to have women at older and older ages, the problems that arise beyond a certain age for women is without question and it is statistically consistent.

Fostering a Creative Child

to raise a child that is creative. He first touches upon how many people like to focus on getting children to be good at math or having them listen to classical music at an early age. There is also the goal of instilling a foreign language in a young child. It is akin, to many parents, to "winning the lottery," as Mr. Grant puts it. Even with the focus on this, Grant asserts that very few child "prodigies" become adults that change the world, even if things go generally well for them. With that in mind, Grant focuses on… Continue Reading...

The young man re-tells that the truck driver smiles as the thieving is taking place and he himself ends up being badly beaten while attempting to stop the mob (Lau and Goldblatt 590). It is imperative to note that some of the occurrences and circumstances within the story appear to be implausible yet casually tolerable. These events can largely be associated to the Cultural Revolution in China. This short story mirrors the personal and social struggles of the people that lived during… Continue Reading...

The court was quite aware its action as a response to an appeal to pity or ad misericordiam, however, the court stated clearly that whenever such as plea is presented, the court "must clearly view all circumstances and facts, measuring rights of society and justice, avoidance of cruelty and punishment." The court made further addition "mercy, in its right place, is the characteristic of every appellate court" (Saunders,1993).

According to Durkheim, crime was a necessary evil in society. He advocated that crime should only be kept within reasonable boundaries (Seiken, 2016). One outstanding feature of sociological theories is that crime is constructed by society. Society also holds some behavior as criminal in nature but they do not cause harm to anyone. Thus such behaviors are made criminal without sufficient supporting reasons. These crimes are commonly referred to… Continue Reading...

However, higher doses up to 1000 mg will not be harmful and may be helpful in some situations, particularly for those whose immune systems could be compromised like smokers. Persons at already high risk for diseases that thrive in bodies deficient in Vitamin C like arteriosclerosis should take doses higher than the Recommended Daily Allowance too. Conclusion Research points to numerous health benefits, mainly preventative, that result from adequate intake of Vitamin C. In fact, the… Continue Reading...

Sigmund Freud & the Human Condition

Childhood facets determine how the adult behaved. He singled out various sexual stages of development as some of the aspects that are greatly influenced by the stages of child sexual development. It is a well-known fact that Freud has been critical of the Oedipus complex. His point was that the love between the child and the parents is at some point foreshadowed by the conscious adult love. He, however,… Continue Reading...

Mathematics Assessment

noted that students in the U.S. were beginning to perform a little worse in mathematics than children from other countries worldwide. Mathematical knowledge among citizens was considered a very important factor for a country to be a leading world power. Assessment activities have been a continuing focus of academic research for more than twenty-five years. In that period, there have been new tools developed. In addition, the curriculum has shifted its focus to the results of learning. The shift of focus in the theory of learning to constructivism from behaviourism has greatly influenced the learning and teaching of mathematics.… Continue Reading...

Childrens Rights and Teacher Advocacy

UNICEF have actively participated in addressing every aspect of CRE successfully in one or two places. Concerning children's rights and adequate learning, while there are widespread opportunities for children, it is still not an entitlement in most parts of the world. When programme entitlements exist, it is quite common for links to be established between the rights contained in programme and certain responsibilities, when it should actually be linked to the United Nations Convention on Rights of the Child. This increases the chances of children learning about the rights without learning about the CRC; plus, they will be able… Continue Reading...

These figures tell a totally different story to "Eye in the Sky." The movie does not only fail to explore the U.S. Coalition drone programme's actual utilitarian calculations, but its erroneous representation of the way targets are recognized actually makes this reality look impossible (Browne, 2016). "Eye in the Sky" depicts target detection as a process that is closely followed as well as extremely accurate. Colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren) says: 'I… Continue Reading...

Further, Moody-Zoet claims that it is imperative to take into consideration which kind of approach is adopted: indirect or direct. For aiding students in grasping key philosophies, theories, and abilities, educators must necessarily offer direct instruction in the form of offering students information, demonstrating specific skill-based classroom activities, demonstrating inner speech or inquiry forms linked to reflective learning, and explaining and offering corrective feedback. Meanwhile, indirect instruction entails educator engagement in directing children in undertaking investigations… Continue Reading...

A harmonious style, evidenced in the nuanced way that Mitchell and Cameron parent their child Lily, and also in the way that Claire and Phil parent their three older children. Because Alex, Haley, and Luke are either older teens or young adults, the issue of parenting styles is not as evident with them as with Mitchell and Cameron. Yet the overall trend of harmonious parenting is revealed in the way the three teens are encouraged to express their feelings, and to develop… Continue Reading...

Residential Schools in Canada for the Aborigines

many of the indigenous people were not free to let their children participate in education. The indigenous communities saw no need to have their populace access education even when it had been brought to their doorstep (Fontaine, 2010). In fact, the entire population was illiterate and hence they could not even comprehend the English language that was used to bring Christianity and education to them. In a matter of time, it became necessary that all the population of the young people is put in some place where they will be given everything including education. Education alone was not sufficient… Continue Reading...

Developmental Psychology

and moody, and their emotional rollercoaster may increase conflicts, in part, due to the fact that children's brains are yet to fully learn emotional control and expression in a mature way. Youngsters improve at understanding and handling others' emotions with age. Hence, children may show greater sensitivity to the emotions exhibited by fellow human beings. However, in the course of developing such abilities, teens may misinterpret body language or facial expressions. They will also probably exhibit increased self-consciousness, particularly with regard to their bodily transformations and look. Actual or perceived appearance generally impacts teenagers' self-image (Teens development: overview, 2011).… Continue Reading...

Vietnamese History Throughout the Centuries

late 15th century, state sponsored schools emerged because social control of children was deemed vital to the society, to promote order within a Confucian worldview. Both both male and female students were educated. Confucian law allows for a disobedient or deviant child to be disowned The strict behavior codes were designed to enforce moral codes. Marriage rites and mourning rites were also important. These codes were all about maintaining cosmic order by creating an orderly society. The law would be considered advanced by modern standards, as it accounts for ethnic minorities too. Philosophy and Religion Le Quy Don was… Continue Reading...

Idiocracy Idiocy and a Nation Full Of Idiots

democracy. Fortunately, idiocy can be resolved through education. Education is not just about imparting facts and information to children who can regurgitate that information on standardized exams. In fact, education is not just about preparing for a career path. Education is about empowering the individual to become a good citizen (Levinson, 2009). The achievement gap in public schools between whites and non-whites, or more realistically between the wealthy and the poor is meted out at the ballot box. Those students from underprivileged backgrounds with underclass status feel civically disempowered; they are therefore less likely to be active participants in the… Continue Reading...

For children, the positive impacts of technology include improved social development through better collaboration and interactions with their peers, development of multiculturalism, and better family relationships and adult-child interaction (Hsin, Li & Tsai, 2014). In addition, technology helps in learning through preparing children for schooling, improved physical and motor skills development, and language development (Kirkorian, Wartella & Anderson, 2008). However, the negative effects of technology on human development during childhood include health related issues because of less physical activity, behavioral problems, and changing social… Continue Reading...

It offers incite in Karen family literacy practices both inside and outside the home. For example, Karen refugees practice literacy through participant observation, memorization, reading texts aloud (recitation), and computer use (Quadros & Sarrob, 2016).

Unfortunately, there are not many services or safe homes for girls or women that are trafficking victims. Even more unfortunate is that there is not a single safe home in the U.S. for trafficked boys (though one is currently being built)." It seems clear from such arguments that organizations such as this are attempting to broaden the base of concerned individuals by citing the instances that are not restricted only to the female gender.

The combination of pictures and words enable the reader to grasp a better understanding of the story being told. Pictures relay information words may not relay, thereby reinforcing text. Similarly, words clarify the events leading or following to that portrayed in a picture, thereby enhancing the comprehension of the picture.

Another theme identified in the study is a conflict between a woman role in the family and work. In the Pakistani context, woman expectation is to perform the family roles with regards to the family expectation. While a woman in Pakistan might have worked long hours, the office work responsibility should not affect the childcare and domestic responsibilities. (Anwar, & Shahzad, 2011).

Although the roots of Boko Haram can be traced to global Islamic fundamentalism, in Nigeria there are a host of more salient political, social, and economic problems that have made it possible for Boko Haram to become increasingly powerful and relevant. The responses to Boko Haram have failed to address these underlying causes, instead relying on reactionary tactics including violence or simply remaining indifferent to the situation Anyadike (2013).

It is easy for these viruses to transmit between children in places in which they regularly gather, such as at schools or in recreational centers. Additionally, adults who work in these areas are also at risk for contracting these viruses simply by spending so much time with children. This population is vulnerable because children are not always as conscious of general cleanliness, which can greatly… Continue Reading...

2008). With age and change of life roles, people begin satisfying their fundamental needs in different ways. Fundamental needs of children are chiefly fulfilled by dependency on parents. Teens meet their fundamental needs by means of peer relationships, while young adults do so through intimate/spousal relationships and interactions with people they encounter in educational and workplace settings. Middle-aged people fulfill fundamental needs through workplace relations and elderly individuals do so through their relationships with close friends and spouses. While fundamental needs remain the same, a person's life roles undergo change, depending on the choices made for satisfying them (Mottern, 2008).… Continue Reading...

This means people can potentially stalk and hurt a child that they wish to follow. In the end, people have many concerns with the use of video cameras.

They also fear what people may do with the information collected from these cameras. Information from these cameras becomes public record that can be easily accessed. Should… Continue Reading...

Death and Meaning Of Life in Tuesdays with Morrie

.....deathbed, Morrie reflects on his life, and relays several messages about the meaning or purpose of life. Ironically, one of the main messages of the story is that life does not necessarily have a greater or cosmic meaning. Meaning is found in what is immediately before us, in the day-to-day existence and especially in relationships with others. Life's meaning is found in accepting life for what it is rather than wishing it could be something else. The meaning of life can therefore be best understood by appreciating what we have now instead of wishing we were different or that things… Continue Reading...

Women entrepreneurs after all, are just as diverse and skilled as men entrepreneurs and deserve to be seen as such through broad-based research initiatives. Such initiatives can help future generations of women entrepreneurs… Continue Reading...

If their schedule needs to be adjusted so the employee shows up later but also stays later, this could be arranged. If adjustments were made, but the employee continues to show up late, then the second offense might be wearing a scarlet letter T. for tardy. This would publically shame the employee but do so in a comedic fashion. After the third offence, the employee could be… Continue Reading...

Organizational Behavior and Communication Styles

As a result, Lixin has developed stronger interpersonal communication styles. Lixin and Greg both worked more independently than Yash, who was more able to learn about small group interactions. Although they are completely different work environments, with different organizational cultures and structures, the interpersonal communications are similar in that leadership is strong, supportive, and transformational in nature. Their experiences highlight the importance of what Reece &… Continue Reading...

Violence, Sex and Other Things

will exhibit violent behavior or aggression, but that care must be taken when children are exposed to violence in video games, television, or other media. When children are exposed to violence, as they inevitably will be, parents and other adult mentors need to be honest and open about the imagery. Instead of allowing the child to distort reality, mistaking what they see on the television with real life, parental engagement can help the child to distinguish between violent imagery and real violence. Some children may also be prone to aggression and violent behavior because of their personality or neurophysiology.… Continue Reading...

Pornography Child Abuse and Coersion

… Disease Control and Prevention (2016), as many as one out of every four children have experienced some type of abuse: including physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Exposure to pornography, whether accidental or not, can be harmful to children's psychological or social development. However, coerced exposure to pornography is a more extensive form of abuse that coincides with other types of abuse including psychological, physical, and sexual abuse. Coerced child pornography may in fact be one of the most harmful types of child abuse because of the multifaceted nature of the crime. The nationwide prevalence of abuse in the… Continue Reading...

Relationship Of Food and Ritual in India

Saving the Cows, Starving the children" by Sonia Faleirojune and the article entitled "Food Price Inflation in India: Causes and Cures" by Pradeep Agrawal and Durairaj Kumaraswamy in the Indian Economic Review available from JSTOR both address food issues in India. These articles appealed to me because I find India to be a fascinating country where there is so much potential for greatness yet so much inherent contradictory actions and agendas that frustrate the country's advances. Faleirojune focuses on the contradiction at the heart of India's policy towards banning beef:… Continue Reading...

Democracy or Not for Economic Development

they demand a higher standard of rights, and are better able to provide an education for their children. Over time, this results in an educated populace that is aware of concepts like human rights and freedoms, and insists upon them. As this becomes the pain point for the autocratic ruler, they either devolve some powers to the people, or they devolve largesse, as has occurred in the Gulf States. Recommendations for South Sudan There are a few recommendations for South Sudan. The firs tis to focus on the key antecedents to economic development.

Educational Psychology

television forms a source of influence on pupils' moral/ethical education in a few blue-collar households. children belonging to such households may interact more with the TV than with their educators and parents. While parenting contributes greatly to legitimating culture, TV now comes close to overshadowing it. For instance, prior to reaching age 20, an average individual typically sees about 350,000 TV commercials (i.e., about 20,000 commercials per annum or over 3 hours of TV advertisements weekly). One may safely claim that a child is considerably in the company of the consumption ethos, as the TV mirrors commodity culture (KENPRO,… Continue Reading...

There are various children development theories that are applicable in the elucidation of the ad's claim and the aforementioned general concepts made in the ad. The two development theories that will be discussed in this particular section are the Theory of Cognitive Development and Multiple Intelligences Theory. Piaget's Theory of Cognitive Development One theory is the Cognitive Development Theory. This theory was developed by Jean Piaget, and it lays emphasis on predictable cognitive stages. In particular, Piaget asserted that cognition was dissimilar in… Continue Reading...

Cognitive and Behavioral Development Of an Adolescent

and behavior. According to the Piaget's theory of development, children go through various stages in life. Theories of development reveal that when a student is in high school or the 10th grade, he or she undergoes through a period of personal development through the creation of identities. At this stage, individuals are preparing for adulthood and gaining more independence just as adolescents become experimenters in their lives. Piaget proposed a theory of development where moral reasoning for children develops from what he calls a naive understanding of morality. This naive understanding is usually based on behavior and outcomes. However,… Continue Reading...

English Protestant Clergy in Literature

reader. Goldsmith's Rev. Primrose is a family man: he is the happily married father of grown children (though they are not quite so matured that they know to avoid the pitfalls of false love, etc. -- issues the Primrose will have to deal with before the novel's conclusion). Yet, Primrose is also an ironic character -- in much the same way that Yorick and Adams are: they are educated, do understand the Protestant ethos, and are concerned about their duties as preachers, but they so often fail to do the right thing when it comes to their own persons and… Continue Reading...

The article begins by identifying Karen as an ethnic minority group in Burma that has been forced to live in exile in refugee camps in neighboring Thailand due to the protracted ethnic conflicts in Burma/Myanmar. Nursery schools in these refugee camps were established to enhance the psychosocial development of young children. The schools seek to accomplish this through creating a child-centered, innovative, and learning-friendly environment (Tanaka, 2013). Following an assessment of the psychosocial development of these children using… Continue Reading...

Indeed, it would seem that women of color being present in STEM fields raises many of the same question as are seen in other work fields, albeit in a more advanced and protracted fashion. This is obviously a problem as STEM fields and colleges will remain monolithically white and male so long as this is allowed to continue unfettered or at least unstopped. Lee, H. S., Flores, L.

How Democracy Leads to Tyranny

led by a philosopher-king, who pursues truth and views the citizens as his own children, and who makes correct decisions for them in the same manner as a father makes for his family.[footnoteRef:1] For society to function there has to be some limit as to what is permitted and what is not permitted (in terms of rightness and wrongness). Mill's standpoint is that what is permitted should be based on what is deemed to make them happiest -- i.e., the greatest good for society (a pragmatic -- or utilitarian -- consideration). For Tocqueville, the question of what is permitted… Continue Reading...

Comparing Different Cultural Views on Aging

where professionals are paid to look after them because their families (their own children) do not want to look after them or cannot do so because of work and time constraints. Aging is not something that people look forward to in our culture, and because there is no common belief in reincarnation (or even in an afterlife, except for those who are still Christian, Muslim, etc.) there is very little desire to even think about getting old or how we might help those who age. Instead, we focus on making every moment of our youths last -- which is… Continue Reading...

Feminist Perspective Of the Sex Industry

goods (in this case, one's sexuality) for one's own benefit. Sex traffickers understand this and prey on women and children who are vulnerable. Legalizing prostitution would not end sex trafficking. The questions that should be asked instead are: Why have traditional societies placed a taboo on prostitution? How should a feminist approach the issue of prostitution? Even if it were legalized, would it still be good for women, or is there something within the selling of sex that undermines the personal and social fabric? These questions may not have any clearer answers, but at least they will facilitate a… Continue Reading...

The state has a legitimate interest in outlawing such activities on the basis of their potential risk. [4: Ibid.] On the other hand, Mill always wishes to err on the side of not regulating; in a stance commensurate with his utilitarian principles articulated elsewhere, Mill is intent upon doing the greatest good for the greatest possible number of people.

In fact, the video game culture in Hong Kong is very strong and incorporates many active dance type games into its market. Choreography and dance is also a big part of the Asian experience and much of advertising of music groups depends upon this pop balance of dance and image. For children looking to be active, they will mimic these moves or find the ability to be… Continue Reading...

Global Comparisons in Workplace Discrimination

issue. The supposition that global work settings are intrinsically fair is as precarious as the supposition that children are intrinsically good. The manner in which we treat other individuals is a mirror image of the way we have been educated and taught to treat others. In particular, being misinformed and ignorant are the fundamental makings and constituents of stereotypes and prejudices. An essential part of addressing workplace discrimination is undertaking projects that propagate appropriate, equitable and honorable information to counter typecasts and motivate behavior and conduct that complies with human rights. Such education may be purposed to embolden better… Continue Reading...

way forward through tumultuous times. A new edition of Isaiah for the children of the 21st century would be a natural extension of Books 1-3. God's plan is to be honored, trusted, revered, and acknowledged even through the intense suffering that characterizes human existence. The first three books of Isaiah present Jerusalem increasingly as a spiritual and symbolic center of worship, a pilgrimage hub, and the seat of God's actual power. In fact, the city of Jerusalem has historically evolved exactly as such. A fourth book of Isaiah would highlight the prophetic power of Isaiah, anchoring the 21st century believers… Continue Reading...

At the family or individual level, parents would pray and sacrifice for their sick children. They would also appeal to the gods for journey mercies and success in school. People went to oracles to seek guidance from the gods. They would ask gods to provide answers for matters such as personal life, medicine, business, war, and philosophy (Carr). With strong adherence to religion, the society strongly believed that the gods rewarded good behaviour and punished bad behaviour (Carr). Therefore, how one behaved mattered a lot. In other words, good things happened to good people, and bad things happened to… Continue Reading...

Socrates' hero Oedipus is strong, confident and a truth-seeker even to the extent that it leads to his own ruin, while Jocasta is conniving, interested in protecting her own -- unwilling to have the truth revealed because she knows what will result.

parents would alter their own perceptions of drinking and adopt more liberal views instead of attempting to correct their children. A school-based longitudinal study sample was utilized for hypothesis testing. It was discovered that parents of teen drinkers eventually showed less opposition to adolescent drinking. Further, parents who didn't change their perceptions (i.e., those who continued to vehemently oppose teen drinking) suffered from more anxiety as compared to parents who eventually adopted more liberal views. These outcomes indicate that for getting rid of the conflict between awareness of their child engaging in drinking and their non-tolerance with regard to… Continue Reading...

It is used to explain infant development according to the sensorimotor or first stage. The theory suggests that… Continue Reading...

2012, p.12). Although official USDE guidelines specifically state that restraint policies should be uniform for children with and without disabilities, in actual practice, students with disabilities are far more likely to be restrained, "usually with those who have autism or are labeled emotionally disturbed. Sometimes the students will get upset; they might even get violent" (Shapiro 2014). There is a real risk that children who are restrained physically may get hurt. There is always a delicate balance between ensuring the safety of other students, teachers, and the student him or herself versus the risks of restraints.

Parental Authority Hobbes and Locke

Parental authority is something Hobbes believes is based on a contract. Parents take care of children in exchange for the obedience of the child. Locke believes parental authority relies on biological inheritance and the natural rights bestowed on a parent to take care of a needy creature they bring into the world. He also states, children are bound by honor to obey the parent until they reach 'an age of reason'. Such a convoluted and complex interpretation of parental authority is why Locke's perspective is wrong and Hobbes' perspective is right. Hobbes' interpretation of parental authority is simple… Continue Reading...

The contradiction between her active role as author-creator-mother and her passive role as female-subordinate-bereaved is why O'Rourke calls the 1831 introduction a "gateway into the paradoxes of the original novel," (367). Its exaggerated self-deprecation and her pandering to the publishers point to the fact that Shelley used the 1831 introduction as a way to rebrand the text, promoting the novel as a whole to a new audience capable of deciphering the… Continue Reading...

Biculturalism and How to Create Multiple Identities

heterogeneous nature of the United States. Given that 69% of Muslim children in USA attend a public school, it is also important to understand how schools and educators are responding to issues related to multiculturalism versus assimilation and how educators can help children mitigate problems personally as well as promote a more educated and culturally aware society in general (Al-Romi, 2000). The main themes that emerge in a review of literature on biculturalism in general and on Muslim-American biculturalism in specific include the nature of biculturalism, how Muslim-Americans navigate biculturalism, how problems like discrimination are dealt with personally and… Continue Reading...

It is often ascribed to children and young adults but there seem to be implications to all age spectrums, even if people that play video games are mostly younger. Indeed, violent video games are of high concern to many people. Work by Gentile (2017) in particular would seem to reveal that the effects are extensive and usually biological in nature. While mental effects are on that list, there are also ones that affect other parts of the body, in whole or in part. Gentile explains that violent… Continue Reading...

The blacks had their lives at the mercy of the masters and they had to do anything they were asked to do (Angelou, 19.). This included letting the masters sell their children into slavery (Arsenault and Freedman, 15). For example, in the poem "Our Grandmother" she says: "No angel I stretched protecting wings Above the heads of her children, Fluttering and urging the winds of reason Into the confusion of their lives.

Comic Books, Graphic Novels, and Literacy

important for including in high school curricula because as children get older, their recreational reading decreases (Snowball 43). Teenagers tend to be more interested in graphic novels and comics partly because of the multimedia world in which young people grow up with and are immersed in (Snowball 43-44). Thus, another reason why comic books are accessible is that they are essentially a multimedia format with the potential to expand into digital media too. Moeller confirms that graphic novels resemble film more than traditional text-only literature, making them especially relevant to younger generations. Because graphic novels appear in different cultures… Continue Reading...

There is no "clear national definition of what specific RTI data a local multidisciplinary team must have in hand to make a determination of" specific learning disabilities (Hauerwas, Brown & Scott, 2013, p. 102). Stahl (2016) also found that schools "were implementing RTI on their own without the support of a research team or external funding," leading to the lack of fidelity to professional standards of competency (p. 659).

citizens are enjoying benefits such as coverage for pre-existing conditions, maternal care, ambulance services and children have access to medical services. The ACA was to be replaced by a different Act commonly referred to as 'Trumpcare'. Unfortunately, the general masses and politicians seem to be divided concerning the repealing process. Only 35% feel that the Trump government should work harder to replace 'Obamacare' while the rest (majority) feel that the existing government should work harder to improve the existing system work. The former seem to be driven by contemptuous competition rather than the well-being of citizens (Lyles 2017). As… Continue Reading...

Through the early elementary grades, most students believe that effort is the same as intelligence," (p. 457). It is equally as important for Mr. Cardot to avoid attributing the students' lack of mastery to their own lack of effort on the task, and to notice when students might be growing frustrated by their lack of understanding. Just because the students have not yet mastered setting does not at all mean that they will… Continue Reading...

Issues Within Special Education

used to be standard when it came to identifying and labeling children with certain educational or physical issues. However, they have fallen by the wayside in favor of new terms. A common example would be the word "retard" or "retarded". While the creator of that term surely had no ill will, the term "retard" obviously became a pejorative . . . and insult. What has been seen with that term as well as others within the educational and clinical sphere is to soften and change the terms to help remove the negative connotations of using any term to refer… Continue Reading...

The authors of this research work developed an inventive game encompassing social interactions which offers body- and neural- based feedback directly related to both reinforced behaviour and the causal importance of trained signals. The paper's conclusion puts forward the idea that combining biofeedback and neuro feedback training might be more successful as compared to conventional approaches, and ends with describing a novel game interface developed expressly to serve this end.

the legal TV drama series. In the TV show, a woman drowned her children in a bathtub and claimed post partum illness in her defence (Cassel, 2006). Was she to blame for what happened? Ms Yates was convicted for murder. The jury in the first trial found her calling the police after murdering her children to be an act of being in full control of her faculties. In the second trial however, it was argued that since she was psychotic, she could not differentiate between right and wrong (Nau, McNiel, & Binder, 2012).

Biological Theories Of Crime

the genetic study of twins. Instead it is generally agreed that studying adopted children is a more preferable option due to the ease of studying external and genetic influences separately. A high percentage of criminal adopted children who have criminal real fathers (based on the fixed parameters) will prove that genetics has an effect on criminality. Another backing of this method is the fact that in most cases, the adopted children have no idea of their real parents and some don't even know they were adopted (MacLaughlin, John and Gordon 89) Question 4 Sociobiology refers to the interpretation of… Continue Reading...

This is actually a problem for any nation that hopes to sustain itself for generations to come.

This education was critical in creating an informed citizenry that could effectively carry out the American Revolution. Moreover, the women instilled morality and civil values that ultimately led to the aggression with which men struggled for the American Revolution (Cometti, 2011). Therefore, women played a significant role in the American Revolution without which American independence would have remained a mirage. References Byram, M. (2015).

Offer tools to educational institutions: This bill would authorize educational institutions to examine cases of bullying outside of school, develop a tip line that maintains anonymity, and enable greater educational institution latitude in penalizing pupils who engage in major cyber bullying (e.g., urging a child to kill him/herself). b. Reduce the number of victims: Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates reveal suicide to be the second main cause of adolescent deaths. c. Offer tools… Continue Reading...

"There is a legal test for judging whether commercial speech qualifies for protection under the First Amendment. Called the Central Hudson test, it says that such speech must be truthful and not 'actually or inherently misleading'" and it has been argued that much of commercial advertising targeting children takes advantage of a credulous consumer's inability to tell the difference between truth and fiction (Bittman, 2012, par.11).

The findings of this study clearly indicated that enhanced involvement of parents does indeed impact "a child's increased perception of cognitive competence." Thus, increased academic performance, it was found, resulted from increased parental involvement. This essentially means that as the child transitions to elementary school, there is need to have childhood programs that promote parental involvement in place.

[A]ccess to a public education [and] the expectations of a common educational experience [are] part of the American culture” (p. 107).

Moreover, school violence can also adversely affect others in the school system, including the adults who are responsible for preventing it in the first place (Brock, 2009). In this regard, Killam and Roland (2014) report that, “While the focus is often on violence against students, it is important to note that violence in schools can also include violence against teachers, principals, counselors and other school-based personnel” (p. 5). In fact, violence perpetrated by students against teachers has resulted in several deaths… Continue Reading...

Human Trafficking Essay

efforts by the international community, human trafficking remains a global problem today. Tens of thousands of men, women and children are routinely exploited by human traffickers each year, and the practice generates billions of dollars in criminal proceeds at home and abroad. In fact, after drugs and gun-running, sex trafficking is the largest source of money for criminal organizations in the United States. Given the enormity of the problem and the vast sums of money that are involved, it is not surprising that the international community has not been successful in eliminating this practice. To determine the facts, this… Continue Reading...

Performance Management and Maslows Hierarchy Of Needs

a non-profit charitable organization that operated schools for homeless children. I worked with the non-profit in two different regions so was able to compare the approaches of the managers at the separate schools and see which was more effective. In the first school, the management system was somewhat aloof from most of the employees and did not go out of its way to engage with workers, connect with them on a social level, assess their needs, or instill any type of motivation. Workers were expected to show up, perform their duty, and leave. There was no sense of incentive… Continue Reading...

As Carter & Rausch (2008) suggest, children’s organizations can engage with fire departments through open houses, or less formal field trips whereby the kids “see and touch fire apparatus and equipment,” (p. 103). These hands-on learning demonstrations stimulate interest in, and awareness of, the connectivity between fire departments and all other community service organizations. More importantly, the hands-on experiences open the door to learning opportunities whereby staff in those community groups, and the participants in the groups like children, learn the fundamental features of disaster prevention and disaster response.

The Origins and Types Of Behavioral Therapy

One of the reasons why behavioral therapy is effective and recommended for young clients including children is that it can help create positive habits like self-monitoring that can last a lifetime.

Swifts Modest Proposal Ending

exploiting the Irish. “A Modest Proposal” makes an outlandish case for eating children as the solution to poverty. Swift writes “A Modest Proposal” in first person, effectively making it seem that he truly believes in what he is saying. The approach can be considered ironic, in that what Swift states on the surface is not precisely what he means. The entire substantive content, and not just the ending, of “A Modest Proposal” are surprising. “A Modest Proposal” is shocking not because Swift suddenly introduces the concept of eating children at the end of the passage, but because the concept… Continue Reading...

Theory Of Motivation and Maslows Hierarchy Of Needs

theory of motivation can in part explain achievement gaps between advantaged versus disadvantaged children. Disadvantaged children have fewer opportunities than their advantaged counterparts to fulfill lower order needs or are in some ways dissatisfied or unhappy with their basic food, shelter, clothing, or sense of belongingness. The Adiele & Abraham (2013) research on students parallels the work by Gawel (1997) on stimulating employee satisfaction in order to increase motivation and measurable performance outcomes. Finally, recent research connects self-determination theory with Maslow’s theory of human motivation. Low motivation and dissatisfaction in any area of life are empirically linked to precipitating… Continue Reading...

Christian World View Ethical Dilemmas Of Pornography

2016). Further, according to May (2010), pornography is harmful to not only to the consumer, but also women, children, and other entities that do not consume it. For instance, married women may be negatively affected by their partner’s consumption of pornography. More specifically, repeated pornography consumption may lead to compulsive addiction, ultimately hindering normal sexual performance. For a man addicted to pornography, it may become difficult to get sexual arousal without pornography. A deteriorated sex life can increase the risk of divorce or separation. This is without a cost to the society – a psychological cost. Other consequences of… Continue Reading...

He has to look out for them and for himself because in this world nothing is entirely free or entirely safe. The process of looking for a political solution or a political safeguard has proved extremely faulty. The new process—that of self-realization through the local grassroots approach to life—is the way that revolution now seeks to express itself: it is about escaping the spider’s web, as Holloway has stated.

Behaviorism As a Separate School Of Thought

reinforcements are used in the ways parents raise their children, in the ways teachers respond to classroom management issues, and in the ways companies structure their human resources policies and programs. Even the criminal justice system is basically based on behaviorism. Positive reinforcement refers to offering rewards for desirable behaviors, and negative reinforcement refers to punishing undesirable behavior with the goal of eliminating it. Question 2 There were many influences and trends in research leading to the emergence of behaviorism as a separate school of thought. The most important theorists that contributed to the evolution of behaviorism as a… Continue Reading...

How European Interactions Benefitted Indigenous Women

women were responsible for taking care of households and upbringing of their children. However, indigenous women in North America during this period were mostly considered as slaves to men. Indigenous men had more visible, public roles, while indigenous women served as slaves to men. Indigenous women depended on men for decision-making and had relatively minimal control of their bodies. In this essay, I argue that indigenous women benefitted from the interactions with Europeans who arrived North America through becoming autonomous by making their own decisions or choices. Benefit from Europeans Interactions Prior to the arrival of Europeans in North… Continue Reading...

Keeping Driving Age at or Above 16 Years Old

always fair, there are reasons behind the age restriction. Analysis The first main point to consider when it comes to why children under sixteen should not be driving, at least in an unrestricted way, is insufficient brain development. The ideas and theories about the broader subject development do vary. However, there are some things that tend to be agreed up on a lot of the time. One of those would be that a good majority of brain development occurs in the very early years of life and in the womb. However, the process surely does not stop at that point. Indeed,… Continue Reading...

Why Parents Should Be Liable for Their Children's Bullying

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, between one-quarter and one-third of all American school children report being bullied in some fashion, with the highest prevalence of bullying occurring during the middle school years (Facts about bullying 2). It is inappropriate to classify every type of aggressive encounter between youths as bullying because young people are undergoing a profoundly transformative period in their lives when experimentation, peer pressure and the search for individual identity assume truly enormous significance. When some types of unwanted aggressive behaviors persist, however, they conform to the definition of bullying provided… Continue Reading...

The social groups represented in the advertisement appear to be largely from an upper-middle-class income bracket, based upon the nice, attractively-furnished homes in which they reside (even the punk family with the tattooed father has an expensive drum set and family living room). The upper-middle-class family demographic with children, residing in the suburbs, is… Continue Reading...

Compare and Contrast Childhood and Adulthood

children and adults sometimes seem like different species. Biologically, children change continually, their brains and bodies rapidly growing and developing. Those biological changes are accompanied by important changes to the mind and emotional nature, with each person exhibiting a different personality, attitude, and outlook on life. Environmental factors including wealth and social status, culture and ethnicity also play a role in how the child develops a self-concept and interacts with others. By the time children become adults, they are much different… Continue Reading...

Universal Preschool - Government Support and Financing

that the relevance of preschool programs cannot be overstated when it come to the social development of children (Swiniarski, 2007). Here, these programs have a positive impact in the enhancement of a child’s communication abilities – more so given that one of the learning goals identified encompasses communication, language, and literacy (Swiniarski, 2007). Universal preschool education has, however, been criticized on some fronts. Questions have specifically been raised on whether the rapid growth of the programs at present can sustain quality. Some, like Finn (2010), call it naïve. I am of the opinion that if the learning goals remain… Continue Reading...

The Influence Of William Shakespeare and Robert Burns

Though he died at a relatively young age, he was father to 12 children – eight with his wife and four with other women. Burns’ love for women was simply extraordinary. Nonetheless, Burns was not always a womaniser – he had respect for women at the same time. For instance, he drew a lot of inspiration from female poets of his time like Mary Wollstonecraft (BBC, 2017b). Burn’s Rise to Fame Burns’ work was first published in 1786. The publication – popularly known as the Kilmarnock Edition – mainly included poems in the Scots language (Brown, 2017). All the… Continue Reading...

Yet many children grow up without mothers and thrive, and many have distant or even abusive mothers and also learn to cope. Coping with stress due to abandonment or abuse is a complex issue.

Anthropological Observations at a Salad Bar

who work in offices nearby as well as students, parents with small children, and simply people doing their grocery shopping looking to grab a quick meal, can be seen patronizing the restaurant area. In many ways, the setting of Whole Foods and its salad bar says a great deal about America’s relationship to food and changing American society in general. First of all, the diversity encompassed within the offerings of the salad bar itself are impressive. I noticed that many diners did not actually go to eat salad at all but rather to sample the exclusive offerings of Indian,… Continue Reading...

he ended up living until age two in a children's home. Ultimately, the Tates adopted him. His adoptive parents introduced him to a miserable life full of acute emotional, sexual and physical abuse, and neglect. He eventually stood up to them and his defiance caused him to get thrown out. He then moved for a short while to a male shelter, got embroiled in a crime which killed his childhood best-friend (another abandonment, in his opinion), and finally got a job with the Navy. In the course of his sessions, he found love in Cheryl Smolley, a fellow sailor… Continue Reading...

Coming back to reality is painful, suggesting that perhaps the filmmaker wants to show how children escape to either the natural or the supernatural world when the mundane world is too painful. Mei has a hard time dealing with her mom’s setback, and it is only Totoro and his allies—not the actual human adults—who help Satsuki to find her again. 3. My Neighbor Totoro includes several references to Japanese folk culture and especially to Shinto religion and lore.

However, there are a few rites of passage that determine when children can perform major body rituals on their own and without assistance from their parents. Body rituals are gendered. Although men and women usually perform different body rituals, there are several body rituals that are universal and transcend social class status or gender in the Nacirema society.

Europe and the Modern Era

forward by Adam Smith in Wealth of Nations encouraged industry owners to exploit the labor of men, women and children. Child labor was a serious issue in the 19th and early 20th centuries and so too were workers’ rights. Workers’ unions formed as a result of exploitation and the inability of a family man to earn a decent wage to support his family. Laws were passed thanks to the protests of unions and nations’ leaders began to take more responsibility for the actions of industry owners.

Growth Vs Fixed Mindset

The growth mindset is also necessary because it gives people hope. “…maintaining a growth mindset is a prerequisite if children are to develop hope, the belief that they possess the ways and the will to achieve their desired goals.” (Sheehan and Ryan xxii) While the fixed mindset is useful for those looking to take a break or aiming to use talent or intelligence alone, the growth mindset is for those looking to work harder and aim further than what they are now. If someone for instance, wishes to become a pianist and they are not musically gifted, if they… Continue Reading...

Reminiscing on My Teens

Piaget believed that children learn through discovery and “active” learning (Siegler and Ellis, 1996, p. 211) as opposed to passively learning. Watching my father demonstrate his support for his wife and strong familial ties was a means of my discovering the values of these approaches to romantic relationships and family. Furthermore, it was interactive because I could also support my mother in her pursuits the way my father did, enabling me to… Continue Reading...

Cell Phones Can Cause Cancer

The first reason supports my position because if cell phone radiation is negatively changing the brain, it cannot be said to be good for someone. Kesari et al.

Abortion and Ethics

may seem hard to swallow because not many people want to have children today. They see children as being a lot of work and as being expensive and taking away from opportunities to do things with their own time that they would like to do.

It also educates on how to say no to drug use invitations. Some might say that DARE is a drug program and not an anti-crime program. However, this would be inaccurate on two levels. First, drug use is generally against the law. Second, people that engage in drug use commonly engage in one or more other crimes. One example would be people that steal to support their habit.

Again, it is simply no longer efficient to assume students all learn the same ways. My needs assessment indicates that I need to keep abreast in developments related to the variation of learning styles students have. For instance, some students learn best with tactile methods.

Mallett (2016) also notes that the juvenile justice system seems determined to subvert rather than promote the chances of society’s most vulnerable members to succeed. One significant statistic is that the majority of incarcerated youths are minority (68%) males, suggesting that the juvenile… Continue Reading...

Preventing School Shootings

because guns are the problem—they are just viewed as a means to an end for these children who want to lash out at society. Instead, we have to examine our method of intervening, our method of raising them, our method of giving them a reason to want to be good. Our children are lacking, in many cases, in a character education—and as they age, they themselves become adults and in turn have children and the lack of knowledge on what it means to be alive and to have a purpose in life is passed on to the next generation… Continue Reading...

This was the focus of the research study, “Implementation of Goal-Directed Therapy for children With Suspected Sepsis in the Emergency Department” by Cruz and colleagues (2011). This study particularly targeted the proper strategy for use in ERs when identifying septic shock, adding that symptoms such as slower recognition and incomplete fluid resuscitation were common. These researchers highlighted the importance of a computerized triage system, which set off an alarm whenever the vital signs of the child became abnormal. Such a technological tool can pinpoint sepsis faster and help facilitate time-sensitive interventions (Cruz et al., 2011).… Continue Reading...

Colonial Conflict in Africa

between African Identity and British Rule The British colonial administrators in Africa viewed Africans like “ children” in need of training in terms of how to be more masculine ala the Western tradition: for that reason, Oliver Bell, president of the British Film Institute, wrote “the native must be treated as we treat a ten-year-old white child, i.e….he must be shown films of action of the Western type” (Burns, 2002, p. 103). While it was true that Africans enjoyed cowboy films, in the years that followed Bell’s recommendation, there occurred among the settlers the sense that cowboy films were inspiring a… Continue Reading...

Bible Patriarchy Paul and Ephesians Metaphor

the household code partly as an opportunity to provide a “theological justification and motivation for the subordination of wives, children and slaves to the head of the household,” (MacDonald, n.d., p. 341). Yet somewhat mysteriously, Paul switches back again and states, “This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church,” (5:32). Modern readers should not take Paul’s message about marriage customs and gender roles seriously, but should pay close attention to the metaphor being made. To view the relationship between Christ and Church as a marriage union helps strengthen social ties, without the moral turpitude… Continue Reading...

Legal Precedent Constitution Religion and Education

being censured when in fact many Christians would want the same privilege of not having their children being taught different religious or moral values than they receive at home or in their community. When working in a religious educational institution, however, teachers are obliged to promote the values of that institution. A public school is by definition a secular educational institution. The invocation of 1 Peter 3:15 is ideal for this analysis. “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that… Continue Reading...

This group is also considered likely to have young children, which means that they will end up shopping at Sears for merchandise as well if it is marketed to them appropriately. The secondary target market for Sears is the 41-65 year old group of shoppers, which makes up approximately 30% of Sears’ customer based.

Women in 20th Century Canadian Society

young girls, who manifested these expectations within their games and during playtime. It is common for children to play or imitate the adults around them: in this manner, children are like little parrots, mimicking the adult world that surrounds them. The young girls in this excerpt demonstrate how they imitated the social constraints put on women by recreating them in their playtime, and essentially normalizing them. The women would lift up their skirts, most likely for two reasons: the first was to make sure the hems of their skirts didn’t get muddy or trampled when crossing the street. The… Continue Reading...

Nature Vs Nurture Essay

side of nature versus nurture. Chomsky believed human beings possess an innate ability to develop language. Although children can imitate and form habits, thus allowing nurture to provide some role in language acquisition, it is the potential predisposition to acquire competency and speech in language that makes it lean more towards nature. According to Chomsky, children can map language. There is, I believe, good evidence that a generative grammar for a human language contains a system of base rules of a highly restricted sort, a set of grammatical transformations that map the deep structures formed in accordance with base… Continue Reading...

It was comforting to people living in 1950’s America to know that they could afford independence and upward mobility. While it was something that existed in the earlier part of the 20th century, the Great Depression and the World Wars brought tough times and a harsh, economic reality. People did not have a chance to enjoy life, much less try to better themselves for the future of their families and themselves. When the shift towards economic prosperity happened in the… Continue Reading...

Juvenile Delinquency Essay

the justice system. As frightening as it is to consider, over a hundred years ago, children who committed crimes were thrown into prisons with adults and some children were even sentenced to corporal punishment or even death (Yale.edu, 2000). Reformers of the justice system were the ones who pushed for a distinct court system for the treatment of juveniles, with the underlying notion being that these young people could potentially be helped and reformed. “Central to the concept of juvenile court was the principle of parens patriae. This meant that instead of lawyers fighting to decide guilt or innocence,… Continue Reading...

King’s letter responded to the criticism that was waged at him by this biased (and presumably corrupt) clergymen, point by point. The crux of their argument was that when people want to fight social injustice, they should do so within the confines of the laws in place. The main point these clergymen attempted to highlight, was that breaking the law is never okay, even when it comes to righting a social wrong. King was able to turn this argument on its head, showing… Continue Reading...

We all have parents who let us down, children who let us down, bosses who annoy us or who do not pay us enough, or even those who have committed evil and egregious acts towards us or our loved ones. The Pentecost is a perfect time to open your heart and allow the Holy Spirit to flow freely, letting your anger and resentment dissipate because they serve no one: not you and certainly, not God. Maybe you have heard the phrase, “to err is human, to forgive is divine.” That saying is rooted… Continue Reading...

Obesity and Nursing Rates Of Care Community

financial resources do factor into obesity management and health behaviors. children in low-income households are at a far greater risk than their more privileged counterparts for becoming obese (Bomberg, Birch, Endenburg, et al., 2017). Financial disparities do not cause obesity, which is a problem across all socioeconomic groups, but financial disparities may have a strong bearing on disease treatment and health-seeking behaviors subsequent to diagnosis. Financial factors are linked to the patient’s insurance status and ability to afford interventions or necessary lifestyle changes. For example, patients without insurance may not have the ability to pay for pharmacological treatments that… Continue Reading...

Intimate Relationships in Britain

an individual constructs his or her identity, sex, relationships, marriage, children, self-fulfillment, and society will all have a value, which is informed by the effects of modernity on the individual’s sense of identity. Giddens notes that in post-traditional societies, the self is more than social interactions: the self represents a psychological construct develop to produce psychological security for the individual in the face of declining traditional social structures. In a risk society, the old world customs and institutions (such as the family and marriage) have been deconstructed and the idea of the autonomous, independent, self-serving self has been elevated.… Continue Reading...

A longitudinal approach also helps the researcher to identify risk factors at the prenatal and perinatal stages, taking into account family history as an additional variable. Therefore, this study is both unique and important in that it is comprehensive and generalizable, applicable to multiple populations and adaptable to different populations. Life course theory also shows that public health strategies need to focus on early childhood as well as… Continue Reading...

In the business sector, it is expected that the fields of marketing and advertising will explode with AR devices and applications. Marketers and advertisers are expected to embrace these devices because they provide improved capabilities for connecting with existing and new customers.  Problems in Adapting to the Technology While augmented reality will have… Continue Reading...

American Exceptionalism Debate

from a position of American power, treating foreign countries as if they were America’s misbehaving children.” In other words, if America is the defender of liberty in the world and the world’s policeman, the logical conclusion is that all nations which oppose America are evil. Americans, even American policy-makers, are often surprised to learn that the rest of the world thinks otherwise. This can make it difficult to establish dialogue with its enemies and alliances with sympathetic allies. It could also be argued excessive exceptionalism encourages an uncritical attitude to some of America’s domestic policies, including its citizen’s lack… Continue Reading...

Type 2 diabetes occurs when cells fail to respond to insulin. This subtle distinction makes a great deal of difference in terms of treating the two types of diabetes (Arcangelo & Peterson, 2006). It is also worth noting that type 2 diabetes tends to set in later in life, typically around middle age, though it can occur earlier. Moreover, 90% of all diabetes cases are type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnant… Continue Reading...

Asthma in aging adults is not easily recognized because there are other age-related changes that take place in respiratory and immune physiology. These changes mask the progression of asthma until it’s too late. There are physiological changes that occur within organs, cells, and tissues of the older adults, which result in diminished functional reserve thereby increasing the susceptibility of the individual to the disease (Hanania et al., 2011).… Continue Reading...

In fact, Blake also uses the introduction of Songs of Innocence to explain the poet’s own creative process. In a remarkably self-reflective manner, Blake provides a sort of meta-text, perhaps signaling the birth of the postmodern reflexive nature of literature. Blake writes the introduction in first person, speaking of his “piping down” the valleys, repeating the word “piping” to show its dual nature of being both about physical ambulation and also about song (Stanza 1, lines 1-2). Then, the speaker… Continue Reading...

More discord among Islamic immigrants occurred when industry became more and more modernized, and recruiting workers from the remote and rural parts of Turkey began to show more apparent drawbacks, as such workers would have more difficult acclimatizing themselves to German society at the time. Of course, Islam was one of the major factors that prevented more fluid integration among immigrants and… Continue Reading...

Autism in the United States and Canada Essay

was especially the case in the United States. One new article explains mothers were seen as cold to their children and that is why the kids developed autism. “theories about the origins of autism tended to blame mothers, for being “cold” and withholding their affections. Much has happened regarding attitudes and treatment. Most important: Autism is no longer something people have to deal with in isolation” (Angermann, 2014). Now that autism has become more commonplace, there is more research dedicated to autism and the broad spectrum of autism. The perspective has now changed from placing blame on individuals to… Continue Reading...

The Lost Boys Of Sudan Essay

Per the PBS website, about four thousand of the larger group of Sudanese orphans and otherwise displaced children ended up in the United States (PBS, 2016). When it comes to therapy-related situations with these boys, they would obviously be numerous and substantial in nature. The change in culture and surroundings alone would very much be a “fish out of water” experience for these boys. However, there are obviously other issues that will probably be present. For example, it would not be beyond the pale at all to expect that many of those kids would have post-traumatic stress disorder or… Continue Reading...

TF-CBT was the only intervention that achieved the “well-established” criteria for efficacy” (Mannarino, Cohen, & Deblinger, 2013, p. 165). Since Betty experienced severe trauma due to losing her home and unintentionally injuring her husband as a result of a tornado, she would stand to benefit greatly from this kind of intervention. While TF-CBT was originally used for children, research suggests adults have also experienced positive results from implementation of TF-CBT. One… Continue Reading...

Many more children live in poverty abject enough to spawn child labor systems, with 168 million children worldwide—almost 11 percent of all children around the world—as child laborers (Worldwide children’s Statistics, 2016). Given these alarming statistics, adoption should widely be promoted as an alternative to surrogacy, artificial insemination, fertility drugs, or even natural childbirth. Homosexual couples, both gays and lesbians, who want to start families need to look more closely… Continue Reading...

Many to most of the places involved are privately owned so that is an issue as well. Rule of Law Generally speaking, private businesses have a right to refuse service to “anyone”.

In the Pakistani context, woman expectation is to perform the family roles with regards to the family expectation.

problems in this case. Officers jumped to conclusions about the marks on the children’s bodies. While it is understandable that child safety is to be taken seriously and is a top priority, it only would have taken a visit to the family’s home to inquire about the marks and to learn about coining/cupping. As Chan (2016) points out, misconceptions about traditional medicine do lead to cases like these in which child abuse is mistakenly suspected. The school, the police department, and child protective services all had a role to play in improving their cross-cultural understanding of what is likely… Continue Reading...

However, schools face tremendous challenges in maintaining flexibility when determining appropriate prevention strategies against bullying, particularly when dealing with children who are still learning how relate appropriately. School administrators have been left to second-guess on the most appropriate bullying prevention measures, particularly in elementary and middle schools despite the standards established by existing regulations and Supreme Court rulings. In this regard, Carson Elementary School is likely to face problems on determination of the most appropriate prevention strategy against bullying. This challenge will be exacerbated by the need to ensure that policies and practices are based on collaboration between the… Continue Reading...

Human Robot Interaction

easier to trust that there were no material differences between the groups. Leite performed a study in which children wore a wireless sensor to capture their electrodermal data, as a means of capturing their reaction to the robot. The Leite study begins with a claim that "One of the main challenges in child-robot interaction is to capture children's spontaneous and genuine perceptions of the robot." There is no citation for this, but rather a tangential citation to a concept is psychology. The methodology of this study is rooted in this logic. Belpaeme et al also studied child-robot interaction. They also… Continue Reading...

Immigration in America

This rule states that “typically, younger immigrants with school-age children or older immigrants who draw on health care and pensions cost the most, while young people with no children and middle-aged households with children past education age but with members who do not yet require considerable health or pension services cost the least” (West, 2010, p. 9). In other words, immigrants who obtain health care coverage because they are poor or who receive any type of welfare package from the American government represent a cost, while older immigrants who have good jobs and earn their way represent a benefit.… Continue Reading...

high blood pressure, greater suicide levels amongst grown-up males as well as children, and increased levels of fatality and significant accidental injuries. With no essential health personnel, knowledge, and financing, rural areas might be hard-pushed to formulate extensive plans to recognize long term aspirations of health (NACCHO, 2013). In rural neighborhoods, the serious scarcity of medical care services exacerbates these issues. About 20 percent of the US populace resides in rural locations, however only 9 percent of doctors practice there. Nonetheless, by far the most severe rural health staff scarcity entails non-physician services, such as nurse practitioners, dental practitioners,… Continue Reading...

what she already knew: and this is a theme that distinguishes The Wizard of Oz from the prevalent children’s stories of the time. The fantasy genre is one that is malleable and responsive to each generation. Fantasy films made now, such as Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water continue to expand the boundaries of the genre. Because fantasy almost by definition offers filmmakers a sense of limitless wonder and creative potential, this is a genre that continues to appeal to viewers. Yet fantasy fails to have the mass appeal of action films or romantic comedies precisely because there… Continue Reading...

Mass Incarceration in Arizona Social Cultural and Legislative History

hot button issues since 1909, when a law in Arizona passed allowing schools to segregate children on a basis of their race (Whittaker, 1997). This caused much fury and controversy around the state and while the Caucasian governor, Joseph H Kibbey vetoed this legislation, the state legislature was over to override his veto, which meant that in 1912 Arizona was officially a segregationist state (Whittaker, 1997). This slice of history gives a tremendous amount of insight into the history and culture along with some of the more overwhelming though subliminal motivations that shape Arizona state law. From a historical… Continue Reading...

Charter Schools Vs Public Schools

to young people. If parents do not want their children to be educated according to the agenda of the oligarchy, they should have the option of providing alternative schooling, such as homeschooling, charter schools, and so on. I would personally favor homeschooling because I like to be in control of education myself, but having time for it can be difficult if you are already working full time, so charter schools would be another option. Finding a school that is safe where the risk of school violence is minimal would be a top concern too. Today, there are far too… Continue Reading...

rights and respect for others diminishes, slavery’s forms become worse and worse. children are sold into slavery, are beaten and abused—women, too; and men are forced to live as slaves their whole lives even though officially slavery is outlawed. In states like Sudan, Niger, Mauritania and others, slavery still exists in Africa because there is an economic incentive that comes from owning another person—free labor. The unstable governments of these regions, the civil wars, the quest for power by exploiting the earth’s resources and the nation’s people—all of this allows for slavery to be perpetuated. In order to stop… Continue Reading...

pathways to education in a proactive manner. For ADHD children, stressors can come from peers, from instruction methods that do not hold their attention or engage them effectively, or from the environment in which the child is situated. Using appropriate instruction methods in which the child is supported in focusing on aspects of the lesson that are of interest and ensuring that these are understood fully before moving on to a separate area of instruction can be facilitative, for example (Pfiffner et al., 2006). Proactive strategies can also help the teacher to provide emotional support for the student: one… Continue Reading...

The Relationship Between Parental Involvement and Student Success

and fewer resources. But it is still possible to create conditions to enable children to complete homework and seek out assistance with more challenging assignments according to the framework. A lack of stage setting also explains why some students, even if they may have involved parents, may not fully benefit from the involvement if parents do not make academics an important part of the child’s home routine. On the other hand, stage setting theory also allows the limits of parents to fully control the stage in which their children operates. Studies indicate that tracking in schools can disproportionately limit… Continue Reading...

Some are kidnapped or sold to traffickers where they begin working on farms as early as 5 years of age (FEP, 2018). This is the negative effect neocolonialism has on African nations. For example, as Langan notes tariffs on cocoa beans and powdered cocoa are starkly different, forcing African states to continue producing raw materials rather than create their own chocolate products. “EEC tariffs on 5.4% on raw cocoa beans from Africa, compared with… Continue Reading...

Thus, the Earth had a special significance and should be thought of as being the center of the Universe in order to support the notion that people were important to God. Aside from this theological tradition were the scientific or observational facts that Ptolemy had used to describe the geocentric model of the universe, accounting for the movements of the stars, sun and moon. However, as Copernicus pointed out, there was an alternate view of the movements of the stars—the heliocentric model, which could also be found among… Continue Reading...

Guiding Young children (NY: Merrill, 2010), 30.] The Problem In nations like Iran, Central African Republic and Myanmar, literacy rates among females are lower than they are among men.[footnoteRef:5] Cuba is the one exception with literacy reports reportedly equal between men and women. Nonetheless, UNICEF reports that literacy rates among youth and adults are improving as a result of globalization and the spread of universal ideals regarding education and equality: “Globally, the youth literacy rate increased from 83 per cent to 91 per cent over two decades, while… Continue Reading...

The Great Depression and White Evangelicalism

details the trials and tribulations experienced by Jordan, one of eight children, as a way of challenging the academic view of white, Southern evangelicalism as one of “politicized emotionalism, anti-intellectualism, exclusivity and intolerance” (Flynt 5). Jordan’s Baptist faith in particular is often subsumed under such a broad-brushed depiction. Flynt sees this as very much a product of contemporary conceptualizations of white, Southern evangelical movements. This is in stark contrast to how the black churches of the South are frequently viewed as vehicles of social change. Still, Flynt argues that it is mistaken to portray white evangelicalism solely in a… Continue Reading...

Women and the Day Nursery Movement

of progressive-minded women looking to help single mothers who needed someone to watch their young children while they went to work to earn a living for their families. The purpose of Durst in writing the article was to highlight Day Nursery Movement in America and show how women worked together to help one another at a critical time in Progressive America. Durst’s article is well-researched and information and sheds light on a subject that is usually off people’s radar. Durst’s main thesis is that the Day Nursery Movement held women come together for one of the first times in… Continue Reading...

Mel Gibson completed his high school and university education in the Sydney area, where he also became involved in theater. His forays into acting eventually earned him a role in Mad Max, his first major acting role. The first Mad Max movie came out in 1979; by the third sequel Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome in 1985, Gibson was earning over a million dollars for his acting performances (“Mel Gibson Biography”). In 1987, Gibson starred alongside Danny Glover… Continue Reading...

The Relevance Of Anthropology Today

investigators. For instance, Andrews and Sayers (2011) report that, “As children, we learn from watching other, usually older, children playing [and] watching our parents and comparing their behavior towards us with that of our friends' parents” (p. 4). In sum, these types of environmental influences have been consistently demonstrated as having a profound effect on the development of gender roles within a given society. As Andrews and Sayers (20110 conclude, “]This] is how we acquire our perspectives, at least initially, on gender roles and parenting, both of which we know, from sociological and anthropological research” (p. 5). An anthropological… Continue Reading...

Online Life Bane or Boon Essay

web is also counteracted by the fact that the technology enables parents to keep tabs on their children at all times. Even the sheer expense of a cellphone plan and the phone itself can be viewed as binding children to their parents more. Parents can also withhold access if the child misbehaves, and for many adolescents, the prospect of not being connected to their friends online is a greater threat than the pleasures any party could possibly bring.  This is part of a larger trend to an other-directed rather than an inner-directed self, in Turtle’s point of view.

Book Trade Between China and France an Assessment

is sufficient evidence from families to suggest that households at first instance attempted to educate their children in what was a deliberate attempt to instill some scholastic talent sufficient to succeed in examinations. Poor families could not afford this luxury. For this reason, there are those who had to quit their studies so as to contribute towards the support of their poor families. In attempting their luck in other ventures, there are those who took up book trade and ended up succeeding immensely on this front. This was the case with the orphaned Ma Quanwen whose uncle had supported… Continue Reading...

As opposed to promoting eCigs as tools to help stop smoking tobacco, the workshops may b promoting nicotine use to a large extent. Vaping devices, many of which contain nicotine, are commonly sold online. It is not easy to verify how old the consumers are (Jarmul, Aherrera & Chen, 2017). References Spector, N. (2017).

Gmo Food Safety

a reasonable opinion on the subject of feeding GMO foods to my children, I would want to defer to the best available science, and add a dash of reason. The first thing that would need to be established is the methodology by which one assesses the concept of safety. Clearly, there are no safety issues in the sense of GMO foods being poison (i.e. having immediate negative health effects). The question of GMO safety therefore is more a question of long-term impacts on human health. A major study on the safety of genetically modified foods determined that, based on… Continue Reading...

Kraft Foods Canada Targeting the Millennials

of its most iconic products, making Kraft Singles relevant to millennial moms—and their children. Kraft Singles promotes four core brand attributes overall: health, nutrition, taste, and convenience (p. 7). To retain authenticity, Kraft Singles needs to develop a new marketing campaign that is both relevant to millennial moms while also remaining rooted in these four core attributes or values. Because of the connotation of processed cheese as being less healthy than real cheese, Kraft Singles cannot necessarily position itself as a natural living product, nor one that offers any significant nutritional value. However, Kraft Singles can capitalize on the… Continue Reading...

Charlotte Perkins Gilman “the Yellow Wallpaper”

women, controlling fertility was difficult. Women often had many more children than they wanted or could raise and the feelings about the central character for motherhood are ambivalent (Anderson). The main character seems less depressed due to biological reasons than she is conflicted about her role as a woman and mother with aspirations for a life outside of the home. Although the narrator occasionally mentions the existence of her baby, it is given relatively little importance in the story. Her attitude towards motherhood may be reflective of the fact that when Gilman was writing, it was still largely unavoidable… Continue Reading...

Why Columbus Day Should Not Be Celebrated Essay

Introduction For decades, school children have been taught the misinformation that Christopher Columbus “discovered” America. As consciousness develops and society becomes more aware of the realities of history, it becomes less and less acceptable to celebrate false heroes like corrupt politicians, confederate generals and cruel explorers. Christopher Columbus fits the last category. A close examination of history demonstrates that he brought much despair and horrors to indigenous people near the Americas. The fact that The United States still has a day in his honor is… Continue Reading...

Hospital Organizational Change Nurse Consultation

Jackson Memorial Hospital, is a cluster of healthcare institutions that include teaching hospital, children’s hospital, and a range of specialized care centers. A total of 9000 employees work in the Jackson Health System, including physicians, nurses, and administrators. As a health system, Jackson recognizes the value of integrating multiple healthcare domains under one rubric: both geographic and cultural. The unified health system at Jackson depends on a hierarchical bureaucracy, but one that does also provide significant autonomy to its individual organizations or brands like the Holtz children's Hospital. Jackson’s organizational structure includes a Board of Directors and Senior Officers… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Culture on Ptsd in the Middle East

Bravova & Halper (2010) reports that higher rates of prevalence of PTSD in this region are reported among children and in areas with recent or ongoing conflict, violence, war or natural disasters. According to Afana (2012), the most common PTSD cluster in the Middle East is enhanced arousal in the aftermath of experiencing traumatic events or exposure to incidents with extreme forms of psychological distress. In light of the increased episodes of traumatic events in the Middle East, Suto (2016) argues that PTSD is and will be a public health crisis in this region and the entire Arab world.… Continue Reading...

Disparities and Diabetes Among Latinos

common in people above 45 years, healthcare experts are increasingly diagnosing children with the condition (American Heart Association, 2018). Although some factors that contribute to diabetes incidence are beyond human control, others can be mitigated and even eliminated. It has been established that people can delay or reduce the probability of developing diabetes by making some lifestyle changes. For example, obesity is a major predisposing factor of diabetes. Another modifiable human behavior is physical inactivity. When high blood pressure remains untreated it not only damages the cardiovascular system but is also noted as a possible diabetes trigger (American Heart… Continue Reading...

Social Problem and Human Services

the nation’s educational system continually fails unwanted, abused and neglected children. Also, foster children totally at society’s mercy for survival are largely ignored. As children don’t have any avenue for voicing their views and demands, and cannot finance political campaigns, protest for improved services, or lobby elected representatives in order for being heard, it is the responsibility of society’s adults to speak for this faction of society. Attempts at organizing an effective child welfare system can be traced back to the late nineteenth century, when the nation’s contemporary system of foster care was established and Charles Loring Brace initiated… Continue Reading...

The Role Media Plays in Relation to Gender Stereotypes

and eroticism. They are frequently shown to be socially inferior, submissive, helpless and widely indecisive. Since children are sensitive and respond to the portrayed image of the workings of the world, the way women are portrayed in advertising presents a dishonoring model and are harmful to the way children are taught to perceive women. Small children cannot distinguish between reality and fiction; therefore, they form contorted and rather skewed image of a woman. For instance, such presentations of women as submissive, accepting violence, and the portrayal of violence against them as a near norm could be passed from generation… Continue Reading...

As a matter of fact, as it has been pointed out elsewhere in this text, CA-MRSA prevalence is growing in the U.S. Various prevention efforts have been suggested. These include, but they are not limited to, observance of basic hygienic procedures (i.e. washing of hands with a sanitizer and not sharing towels and other personal items like braces), ensuring that wounds and scratches are covered and kept clean (especially… Continue Reading...

and distribution, thereby protecting consumers and ensuring reduced accessibility to minor children. Marijuana prohibition fails to offer the aforementioned protections (DPA). A total of 14 states have implemented regulations that permit marijuana’s utilization as a medicine for treating diseases such as cancer, AIDS, glaucoma, and multiple sclerosis. While studies focusing on the likely medicinal applications of marijuana have been prohibited in the nation, international scientific studies have proven successful in identifying an increasing number of advantages of the substance (DPA). Organizations like the American Nurses Association, American Public Health Association, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, National Association of People with… Continue Reading...

The Historical Construction Of Rape Sexuality Race

supremacy, by labeling black males as sexual predators and women as vulnerable children. Moreover, Fredman discusses how black males began to be prominently depicted—both in text and in illustrations—as “primitive” and lecherous, with white males being considered more sexually “civilized,” (467). These media portrayals were meaningful not just from a discursive standpoint but a practical one as well, with real repercussions for civil society. The rendition of black males as being sexual predators, especially of vulnerable white females, precipitated lynching, as evident in the ubiquitous mentioning of the potential for lynching used as vigilante justice for alleged rapes perpetrated… Continue Reading...

Statement of the Problem According to the most recent estimates from the U.S. government, the number of special educational needs students aged 3 to 21 years was more nearly… Continue Reading...

Supreme Court Sodomy Cases Rulings

as the records show, were against adult men who’d preyed on children, not adults having consensual sex” (Bazelon, 2012). This again demonstrates how the homophobia of the era only helped in aiding oppression against gay people. The sodomy ways were in place to protect children against pedophiles and other such people who abused children. By persecuting gay people in this manner, it created a mindset that they were comparable to pedophiles. This only helped in sculpting a society that was oppressive to gay people. White used the word “facetious” in arguing that gay people have the gall to think… Continue Reading...

We Shall Remain Geronimo

Shall Remain: Geronimo 1 The murder of Geronimo’s mother, young wife and three children turned him into a fighter: he hated the Mexicans after this attack and would attack any group of Mexicans that he encountered thereafter. He demonstrated great bravery. Following the murder of his family, he was part of the band of Apache sent to take revenge for the slaughter. The Mexican soldiers were firing at the attacking Apache, but Geronimo did not even flinch—it was as though he were possessed with an internal fury. As he assaulted them one by one with his knife, legend has it that… Continue Reading...

The new Tax Credit Scholarship program also allows district-authorized charter schools to obtain equal funding and for families of low economic status to have access to private schools. The District of Columbia uses a “foundation” or base formula for aid, with grade levels K-3, 4-8, and 5-12 all receiving roughly a fair and even weight of the percentage of distribution (Griffith, 2015). This method allows D.C. to distribute aid according to perceived need. It is different from a modified foundation, which many… Continue Reading...

Thanksgiving Essay

lore. It is important to weed the facts from the mythology of this tradition. So many school children are taught that the Pilgrims celebrated the first Thanksgiving in a peaceful meal with the native peoples, during their first November here in the Americas. For a long time in early U.S. history, Thanksgiving was just an occasional holiday that certain presidents, such as George Washington would recognize (Johnson, 2017). It was Sarah Joseph Hale who attempted to cajole several presidents into making it a national holiday and it was Abraham Lincoln who finally granted it as such (Johnson, 2017). Lincoln… Continue Reading...

Things Fall Apart Achebe Character Analysis

perpetual fear of his fiery temper, and so did his little children,” (Achebe, 1958, p. 10). Due to the patriarchal norms of his Igbo culture, the members of the tribe condone and even expect such behavior from a fierce warrior-leader. It is only when Okonkwo violates the supernatural laws that dominate the society that he is exiled from the community. Thus, Achebe shows that a patriarchal society cares more about appeasing invisible spirits than about the ethical treatment of human beings. Achebe also paints a round character who fails to change because he never changes his values, beliefs, or… Continue Reading...

Furthermore, she explained that the man who was the father of the child was not someone she would ever want to raise a child with. She also explained that her parents were deeply religious and believed abortion to be a sin. She did not share their beliefs and truly thought she had a right to chart her own destiny.

Panama and Haiti Interventions

Noriega was a ruthless dictator who was keeping presents and joy from the children. The Panamanians were shown celebrating the birth of Christ and singing Panamanian Christmas songs in the streets. The “rally ‘round the flag effect” was clearly being implemented by the media in conjunction with the U.S. government throughout the Panama intervention. The government of Noriega was overthrown, the Panama Canal re-opened, and the people liberated. The conditions of the “rally ‘round the flag effect” were all in play for the Panama invasion: there was increased support for the president (the halo effect), a methodological approach to… Continue Reading...

Collective Bargaining in Illinois Public Schools

continuing to play the game to benefit the educators and the union leaders. The taxpayers and the school children are the ones who lose out. This process should be eliminated or at least reformed so that the teachers unions can no longer take advantage of communities in this way. Conclusion The collective bargaining process is supposed to help teachers gain a fair deal when it comes to pay. However, the unions have gained an upper hand over the school boards and taxpayers in that they arrange quid pro quo agreements with the board members during the election season. Because… Continue Reading...

Behaviorism Psychoanalysis and Hte Psychology

theorists also focused on the formative years, during which children progress through psychological stages. Therefore, Freud also promoted developmental psychology. Psychoanalysis influenced many other movements within psychology, including more modern revisions of Freudian theory like psychodynamics. Finally, psychoanalysis has been critical for various therapeutic interventions based on talk therapy and therapies focusing on the client’s childhood, personality disorders, self-concept, and subconscious urges. Although they evolved at roughly the same historical period, behaviorism is wholly unlike psychoanalysis. Whereas psychoanalysis is all about the subjective experiences of the human being, behaviorism is about what is objective or observable. Behaviorists like Pavlov,… Continue Reading...

Lack of true freedom for undocumented immigrants Akin to several other migrants, José Ángel also cites financial reasons for migrating to the United States. Like a few fellow migrants, he pursued the American dream— he learnt English, worked hard, and pursued a collegiate and university education. However, he failed to achieve true freedom, which is what undocumented migrants stand to achieve via the immigration reform. But this dream is probably not one that will come true in the… Continue Reading...

Postpartum Depression and Gilman Yellow Wallpaper

to note that in “The Yellow Wallpaper,” the husband seems remarkably uninterested in his own children. The narrator’s postpartum depression invariably impacts the mother-child relationship, but need not have a corresponding impact on how the father views his role as a parent. Gender roles were so rigid and unwavering in Gilman’s time that the husband fails to ever consider how he might be able to help his wife alleviate the burdens of childcare. Although gender roles in family units are far from egalitarian, there is currently far less pressure on women to identify only through their parenthood and far… Continue Reading...

Cow’s Milk and Human Consumption

strong bones.” “Got Milk?” For decades, no one questioned the power of milk and the necessity of giving children milk. However, in the last ten or so years, the mentality has shifted and a product that was once unquestioned as a staple of human consumption, has now become controversial. This paper examines some of the pros and cons of the dairy industry and milk consumption from a strictly health perspective. The benefits of cow’s milk are examined lucidly, as are the criticisms that the dairy industry and milk consumption receive. Finally, each side’s argument is concluded succinctly, and recommendations… Continue Reading...

Eastwood then lived with actress Sandra Locke for ten years (“Clint Eastwood Biography,” 1). After he and Locke broke up, 1996 Eastwood married a television reporter named Dina Ruiz, and they divorced in 2014 (“Clint Eastwood Biography,” 1). Although Eastwood has been somewhat outspoken about his political views, he never used his celebrity status to wield power as a public servant. The only exception is that he did serve as the mayor of Carmel for two years;… Continue Reading...

Body Mind and Soul in the Cancer Ward Wit

fact her old English professor is able to provide her comfort during her dying moments by reading a children’s book provides her the greatest solace more than her philosophy and more than intellectualism. Bearin embarked upon an academic career because she was primarily interested in the life of the mind, not the body. The central irony of the play is that she is being killed by her own body with ovarian cancer. Ultimately, human beings are unable to escape the body in the form of death. The play is thus structured on a series of binaries or oppositions, including… Continue Reading...

Physical Education and the Zpd

and conventional features of today’s academic environment. For younger learners in the primary education levels, this separation of young children from adolescents may seem on the face of it like a common sense approach to education—yet, as Gray and Feldman (2004) point out, separation such as this actually is more restrictive to the educative experience than it is facilitative. The reason is found in Vygotsky’s zone of proximal development (ZPD) theory. Vygotsky was an early 20th century Soviet thinker who articulated the idea that individuals learn most effectively when they are aided by other skilled individuals who know how… Continue Reading...

Sandy Hook’s shooter took the lives of over 25 children, all between the ages of six and seven—truly the most innocent lives and an act that would devastate their parents for years to come, perhaps even for the rest of their lives. When acts of violence hurt so many people, many ask what can be done and what should be done. Arming teachers and training school personnel has long been something suggested—often by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and others who have a vested interest in getting firearms in the hands of… Continue Reading...

result of its one child policy, which as effectively curbed the number of children throughout the nation. This means that it will be harder and harder for China to maintain its current economic status as the years go by unless the population begins to regenerate more quickly. Already the economy of China is showing signs of slowing in what Xi has described as a “new normal” for China (Tung, 2016). Another challenge is the overall weakness of Chinese institutions and governance. Corruption in China is nothing new but it can be problematic if tensions rise between the West and… Continue Reading...

Vaccinations Autism and the Argument over Mandatory

Wakefield’s original claim that vaccinations are linked to autism in children “has been fully debunked,” tainted with “suspicions of fraud,” (Pierik, 2017, p. 221). Moreover, there has not been a single peer-reviewed study capable of substantiating Wakefield’s claim, which has been called “the most damaging medical hoax of the last 100 years,” (Flaherty, 2011, p. 1302). The reason why the anti-vaccination hysteria is considered a major public health crisis is because of the potential death toll that could arise from an unvaccinated public exposed to communicable diseases like measles and mumps. An unvaccinated… Continue Reading...

Working Technology for Students

Easy access to technology would help teach students how to be more comfortable with technology from an early age and could also teach them how to use technology and the Internet to provide them with the type of assistance that their parents are not always equipped to give. It will give them the foundation to succeed in college, which is the ultimate aim for all students attending Eagles Nest. My students are primarily from low-income single family… Continue Reading...

Professional Development Plan for Nursing

worked weekend nights to supplement my income and to help support my three children. A divorce, a lack of funds, and a job shift to the Nurse Recruitment Office kept me from pursuing my dream—which was to go to nursing school. However, after receiving some encouragement from other nurses and from my new husband, whom I married in 2001 (and who also happened to be an RN in the CVICU), I finally decided to go for it. After all, by then my youngest daughter was a junior in high school and I could at least begin taking pre-req’s to… Continue Reading...

What Causes Down Syndrome

U.S. and the most common cause of learning in young children. It can also lead to other health-related issues and complications such as heart as well as gastrointestinal disorders (Mayo Clinic, 2018). This paper will discuss the pathophysiology of Down Syndrome; the signs, symptoms and complications of the disorder; what current research and evidence-based practices focus on; and the most common treatment and management practices for Down Syndrome. Pathophysiology In all but 5% of cases, Down Syndrome is caused by trisomy 21—i.e., the individual has three chromosome 21 copies (Antonarakis, Lyle, Dermitzakis, Reymond & Deutsch, 2004). As human cells… Continue Reading...

Media Portrayals Of Nurses Positive or Negative

may be fueling the current nursing shortage as fewer children see nursing as a viable, rewarding, or high status profession (Muehlbauer, 2012). The ramifications of negative depictions of nurses also include a toxic work environment and unsupportive organizational culture. Positive portrayals of nurses in film and television have been emerging to counteract decades of negative stereotypes. In 2001, the Center for Nursing Advocacy developed the Golden Lamp awards, given to “the best and worst depictions of nurses,” and lobbying for change through direct activism targeting film, television, and commercial advertising producers (Cohen, 2007, p. 1). The efforts to change… Continue Reading...

The Significance Of Relational Contracts

arose. Avoiding a recall should be the chief desire of any supplier. As Mattel is a toy supplier for children’s stores and their customers are mainly children, having lead painted toys could cause serious liability issues for the company. Simply putting more effort in tracking products and their origins could result in reduced liability and reduced negative outcomes.

Bariatric Surgery Pico Question

the patient and society. A study by Ells (et al. 2015) tackled the even more controversial of whether obese children and adolescents should be prescribed gastric surgery. Finding studies which focus on children proved to be difficult and the study’s authors only could find one study of 50 participants which met their criteria. This meant that 25 were in the experimental group; 25 in the control group. Slightly less than half of the participants in the control group reported adverse events, but quality of evidence was judged to be low. The relatively small number of patients who go through… Continue Reading...

Psychology Questionnaire

supporters remove the emotional component and simply peg the parents of the illegal children as criminals that deserve such punishment for illegally crossing the border. They cease seeing illegals or asylum seekers as people, and instead, see them as deserving of such policy changes. “Such emotionally based policies can interfere with our capacity to effectively and humanely confront many problems our nation faces. The lessons of affect displacement go beyond childhood experiences of punishment” (Milburn & Conrad, 2016, p. xxiii). When there is a lack of empathy for specific groups because it feels like it is emotionally acceptable to… Continue Reading...

Teachers get feedback on their performance from other teachers even while they are acting as mentors and giving feedback to their students. Parents, by selecting different clusters and giving feedback, likewise contribute from the outside by guiding and also rewarding teachers who best suit student needs. The consistency of different feedback from all sides ensures that there will not be an imbalance of information solely coming from one source… Continue Reading...

Educational Platform Development

Community to the School The role of parents in the education of children cannot be underestimated. If teachers are the educators setting the example in the school, parents are the educators setting the example in the home. Teachers and parents have to work together and be on the same page in order to provide students with consistency of example and continuity in their educative experience. The school strives to reflect the values of the community at all times and works with parents to define those values. The Purpose or Goal of Supervision We observe and evaluate staff members to make… Continue Reading...

On one hand, in a free society, marketers have relatively free rein in terms of what they can transmit, so long as they do not outright lie. On the other hand, there have been calls to regulate advertising and marketing because of fears of its negative social impact. Companies that have violated ethical guidelines have been faced with legal sanctions and boycotts. “Nutella, a sugary hazelnut spread that was pitched as part of a nutritious breakfast for children—the company was sued,… Continue Reading...

Obesity Randomized Control Trial

Randomized Control Trial on Obesity Funding Justification The health of children is significantly, negatively affected by obesity. The effects last through to one’s adult life. Obesity prevention initiatives are, therefore, seriously regarded across the globe and remain a priority. The urge for interventions based on evidence is overwhelming in modern day healthcare practice; more so for families with obese or overweight parents. A randomized control trial is, therefore, necessary (Johansson et al. 2016). This “Early STOPP” RCT focuses on obese or overweight parents that have infants. The intervention measures are… Continue Reading...

The son who dies, Paul, represents the sacrificial lamb of the story. Likewise, Tessie in “The Lottery” is the sacrificial lamb of the story. She dies so that her husband can feel good about his ability to conform to the town’s laws. Unlike Paul, though, Tessie does seem to realize as she is dying that the entire situation is “wrong,” (Jackson 7). Paul never… Continue Reading...

Miami Beach High School Demographic Report

it is not. There are other parts of Florida that are now major retirement destinations – the percentage of children might be lower than other areas, but this is more due to high percentages of young singles, and gay couples (the ratio of men to women is unusually high). Implications The key implications of the demographics for Miami Beach Senior High are that both Spanish and English need to be accommodated. English speakers are unlikely to have Spanish fluency. The high proportion of immigrants means that many Spanish speakers are also monolingual, or have limited English competency. While Haitian… Continue Reading...

Responses to Student Posts About Education

childhood education and equal access to preschool. Closing the achievement gaps means providing all children with equitable access to preschool, and offering all parents equal access to childcare opportunities that help ultimately reduce educational disparities. By reducing disparities early in a child’s life, we can collectively create a more egalitarian society. Response to Steven The United States Department of Education is a natural first stop for an online field trip. The No Child Left Behind Act was imperfect but deserves recognition as an important step towards recognizing the needs of all children in the country. This analysis is good… Continue Reading...

Film the Help Review

The book will detail and discuss their experience helping to run the households of white women and raise white children. While this might seem well intentioned, the film gets off on a clunky premise. Hence, the Skeeter character, while well intentioned, fails to be anything more than the hero of a movie about white people trying to help black people, rather than about authentic and unfettered stories of the black experience. This is because in terms of the “Cultural Awareness and Intercultural Adjustment Skills” Skeeter figures very low in terms of her own journey. Skeeter’s time at college probably took… Continue Reading...

Even though children are not born speaking in full sentences, all children have the capacity for language development, the potential to learn verbal and written means of communication as well as non-verbal communication like gestures (Pinker). Yet linguists still grapple with whether semantics exist independently of language (the Pinker point of view) or whether semantics and linguistics co-create each other (Whorf’s perspective). As linguistics has employed more quantitative and empirical methods of data collection and analysis, it becomes increasingly possible to make more cogent arguments about the efficacy… Continue Reading...

When things devolve into hyperbole, character assassination, exaggeration or bomb-throwing, it just coarsens what is being discuss and it prevents the good work from being done. Even to this very day, that is no small thing given the current debates that exist when it come to… Continue Reading...

Virtue Ethics Responses

Yet along with all the good times also comes tremendous challenges from financial strain to the stress of children misbehaving. Parents with virtuous character are less likely to react without the “practical wisdom” that Aristotle understood to be critical to character virtue (Hursthouse, 2016, p. 1). Parenting is all about practical wisdom; there is no guidebook for perfect parenting because there is no such thing as perfection in parenting. As Sandel (2004) points out in his article, the striving for perfection in our society is undermining our ability to be happy. Instead of trying to be perfect, we can… Continue Reading...

Social factors having the potential to impact a study include socioeconomic standing, familial status (neutral or joint), number of kids, whether or not both partners work, relationship patterns, communication, sexual- life related complications and age difference. The study’s potential policy implications include enhancement of people’s EI in marriage. People may be taught to evaluate their negative feelings and emotions and manipulate them for tackling marital challenges. Marriage counselors or programs may take advantage of this study’s outcomes by… Continue Reading...

Arguments for and Against the Existence Of God

than the greatest thing imaginable.”[footnoteRef:10] In other words, like young children arguing over what number is the largest (“Infinity plus one”), the arguments against the existence of God pale when compared to his truly ubiquitous and omnipotent nature which preclude superlative comparisons. In this regard, the point is also made by Anselm’s view that, “A hypothesis that gives rise to a logical absurdity, though, must be false. The hypothesis that God does not exist, therefore, is false; God exists.” [footnoteRef:11] [10: “St Anselm’s Ontological Argument” (2018).] [11: “St Anselm’s Ontological Argument” (2018).] A form of Anselm’s ontological argument in… Continue Reading...

Two of the most important provisions of DACA included the deferral of deportation, and the creation of a pathway towards a legal work permit. However, the Trump administration effectively dismantled the program in late 2017. The current protests are related to the need to resolve this issue and promote compassionate immigration policy in the United States.

The Temperance Movement was widely supported by women’s rights activists and abolitionists throughout its existence. Yet it was largely made up of rural, native-born Protestants and there was also a strong anti-immigrant sentiment within the movement. The virulently racist Klu Klux Klan, for example, also supported Prohibition. In urban locations, the sentiment towards Prohibition was far different. In general, religion was less influential in cities, and many people profited from selling alcohol. Also, for European… Continue Reading...

Obesity Epidemic

2008). Specifically, the results of the longitudinal ALSPAC (Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents And children) study shows that fetal exposure, breastfeeding, parental impacts, school atmosphere and transition into adulthood are all critical nodes or junctures in childhood development (Reilly, Armstrong, Dorosty, et al, 2005). Fourth, in addition to applying developmental psychology theories to the epidemiology of obesity, it is effective to apply systems theory. Systems theory takes into account family and other mezzo level variables impacting population health. The Sobko, Svensson, Ek, et al (2011) research using the Early STOPP (STockholm Obesity Prevention Program) program is illustrative and provides… Continue Reading...

Attitudes Toward Physical Education in Fourth Graders

component of every child’s life. In order for maximum effect to be realized, children must have a healthy, positive attitude towards physical activity. However, with evidence to suggest that physical activity is on the decline and childhood obesity on the rise, investigating the attitudes of children towards physical education is important to understanding this phenomenon. This study will research the overall attitudes of boys and girls in the fourth grade toward physical education from three different elementary schools within one school district. Since boys typically enjoy physical activity more than girls after the age of nine years-old, the study… Continue Reading...

The HR department needs to take concerted action so that the education experience is inclusive, and that this inclusivity is reflected in the faculty. There should be equal opportunities of employment for all races, ages, genders, national origins and disability (or lack thereof).

Even people who claim to wish to allow children to be themselves are shown as engaging in reluctant resignation or using the child’s actions as affirming their liberal values in a self-congratulatory manner.

One challenge would be speaking with someone who disagrees with my perspective. To overcome this challenge, I need to practice the art of active listening, which requires empathy. Instead of shutting out the other person because I disagree with their views, I should take the time to write down or seriously consider what they are saying and the points they are raising.

that most people are unaware that they are perpetuating gender bias. For example, adults treat male and female children differently, speaking to them using different tones of voice, reacting differently to their actions, and showing subtle signs of approval or disapproval when the child does or does not conform to gender norms. Even parents who claim to be progressive and egalitarian unconsciously pass on gender norms and stereotypes because they are just reacting to children the way they have been programmed and patterned to act. Boys are expected to be more aggressive, more physical, and less sensitive or emotional… Continue Reading...

Women's Roles During World War Ii

under the community facilities act of 1942 (Yellin). There were seven centers that were built serving about 105,000 children. She also encouraged industry leaders to build model childcare facilities to be used by their workers. However, all these efforts did not meet the full childcare needs of working mothers. In conclusion, the advent of World War 2 offered American women the opportunity to join the labor market and take up different roles without being discriminated based on their gender. Women taking up male-dominated roles and performing as well as their male counterparts demonstrated that women were as capable as… Continue Reading...

cultural myth of the slave that acts as a surrogate parent to the children of their master. Southern’s slaveholding legend Mammy is not only an idealized slave but also an idealized woman. She is asexual, self-sacrificing and honorable. This particular mythical representation identifies more with her masters than her fellow slaves. She signifies a cultural emblem of romanticized fondness between slaves and masters (Adkins 44).  Additionally, Mitchell also proposes predation by the Federal cavalry man that Scarlett puts to death. Hearing the uninvited guest enter the Tara kitchen, Scarlett immediately thinks of the dinner over the fire. The thought… Continue Reading...

This has many negative implications on their health and academic performance. (McLenan, 2000) Another study showed that a quarter of American children do not drink water daily. Boys were found to be 75% more likely to be dehydrated than the girls. (Valtin, 2002) 65 % of the human body is made up of water. This water helps in a number of biochemical reactions and physiological processes. These include: metabolism, blood circulation, waste removal, body temperature regulation and… Continue Reading...

(Corbit, Bernstein, Kolodziej, & McIntyre, 2006) The above-mentioned STEAM outreach projects have made the trainees consider taking careers in science. The programs have also bridged the gap between the community and scientists. Daugherty, Carter, & Swagerty (2014) emphasized the need for teachers to prepare PSTs so as to integrate the different STEAM disciplines. In addition, Frykholm and Glasson (2005) proposed that science and mathematics teachers be taught pedagogical strategies to help them address overlapping content… Continue Reading...

Clinical Interviewing Skills and Techniques in Social Work

Ms. Smith’s daughter is still using a bottle at four years old. Most child developmental experts believe that children should give up the bottle completely at 12 months, and drink from a cup exclusively. Furthermore, we discover that the child has been suffering from tooth decay, as a result of the fact that she has continued to use a bottle for so long. These are of course distressing details. What is even more distressing is that the social worker attempts to create a sliding scale to determine how concerned Ms. Smith is regarding the state of her child’s bottle… Continue Reading...

India and Pakistan over Kashmir resembles a schoolyard fight between two young children with each side claiming the other struck first in an effort to justify their own subsequent compellence. In fact, and perhaps not surprisingly, even the modern scholarship concerning these issues is based on each country’s respective claims to the Kashmir territory. For example, two Pakistani researchers, Majid and Hussain (2016), argue that the Kashmiri people initially elected to become part of Pakistan as part of their right of self determination, and cite India’s recalcitrance as the source of today’s conflict.

The reality of the situation is that immigrants only represent 1/10th of the population in America, “so the tremendous variety of ages, life situations, and economic circumstances makes modeling their impact challenging” (West, 2010, p. 9).  It is difficult to see whether they are making a negative or positive or… Continue Reading...

Sports drinks on average add 350 extra calories to a child’s daily caloric limit. c. Obesity can bring metabolic syndrome. d. Metabolic syndrome leads to a myriad of health problems. e. Obese children tend to consume 700 to 1,000 calories extra per day. 4. Only 17% of America’s children are obese according to the study. That is a small number compared to adult obesity rates. II. 1. Reason- Sodas contribute to extra calories… Continue Reading...

Hannah Hoch

has a horrific secret at its heart—one which has something to do with innocence, children, and sexuality. It could signify, for instance, the disconnect between natural eroticism and the procreation aspect of sexual intercourse. By commercializing the erotic in cities like Weimar Berlin, through its cabarets and night clubs, expressionist dances and sexualized photography, the sex act had become something produced solely for pleasure, without any hint of its natural end—the reproduction of children. Here, in Hoch’s painting is the missing element—the forgotten child, unwanted, unraised, unholy—the future of society. Housed in a private collection, the work is important… Continue Reading...

Community or Public Health Nurse Role Interview

of preventable infections as well as dramatically reducing the number of overdoses. High risk populations like the homeless, children in foster care, the poor, and the elderly who live alone are continually assessed for health outcomes, to determine whether specific interventions have been working and are cost-effective. Collaborations and Partnerships Forming strategic partnerships with community organizations, businesses, and public institutions is one of the most important roles Lawrence fills. It is important that public health nurses “work with diverse partners and providers to address complex challenges in the community,” (Meadows, 2009, p. 19). Thus, Lawrence is continually coming up… Continue Reading...

Why Americans Should Get More Paid Maternity Leave

benefit the entire society, not just mom and baby. As Ingraham points out, having children “is a necessary condition for our biological and economic survival,” and is therefore in the best interests of the government to foster economic growth through the support of new mothers and their children (1). Among the nations that provide long periods of paid maternity leave, all are wealthy including Finland, Norway, Canada, and Japan (England 1; Ingraham 1). A person does not need to be poor to realize that insufficient paid leave will lead to the incursion of debt, decreased employee morale, and a… Continue Reading...

Effects Of Lead Exposures Among Children Under 12 Years Of Age

aspects. The study seeks to determine the effect of indoor Lead exposure to children under the age of 12 years. This study undertakes a secondary desk-review research methodology to obtain knowledge from previous researches. The study establishes that children are exposed to Lead through consumption of water at homestead or/and at the school where the drinking water is distributed through old Lead plumbing components. The reviewed literature also establishes that children under the age of 6 years exhibited a higher Blood Lead Level (BLL) compared to those above six years. Therefore children under 6 years are more susceptible to… Continue Reading...

Why Vaccinations Should Be Compulsory

Vaccination Should be Made Compulsory for children 1. Universal vaccinations should be made compulsory for children because they are essential for the maintenance of public health and the prevention of future epidemics. Example: The eradication of polio is a good example of a disease that harmed or killed tens of thousands of Americans within living memory (Five important reasons to vaccinate your child, 2018). Statistics: According to the U.S. government, during the first half of the 20th century, polio represented one of the most feared diseases in the country, accounting… Continue Reading...

American Poetry Robert Hayden Those Winter

reader and remains dedicated to revealing its main theme related to the generation gap between parents and their children. Deeper analyses and historical context also show that Hayden conveyed the intricacies of intersectionality: particularly between race, class, and gender. Imagery is central to Hayden’s delivery and to the conveyance of the main themes of “Those Winter Sundays.” The title of the poem immediately envelops the reader in the narrator’s landscape: the cold, brutal “blueback cold” of the American Midwest (Hayden line 2). Hayden was himself from the Detroit area, and given the poem’s reference to the “cracked hands” that… Continue Reading...

Logical Fallacies and False Appeals in the Media

in advertisements, particularly those that promote charitable organizations. One commercial shows malnourished children, and begs for the viewer’s money, claiming that the money can help these poor children. Appealing to pity is a variant on emotional appeals more broadly, in which the speaker manipulates audience sentiments, which can cloud rational judgment. Appeal to Fear Fear-based appeals are used constantly, particularly by politicians. For example, a mayoral candidate claimed that they were going to institute several “tough on crime” measures to make the city safer. Yet one reporter showed that crime rates had actually been going down the past several… Continue Reading...

Link Between Gender and Culture

this time women were as having no value other than bearing children and taking care of the home. The gender discrimination has been experienced in many societies especially in areas such as education, awareness and status, and the socio-economic environment. Women are still more restrained to their domestic duties that rob them of the opportunity to exercise their artistic selves. Women are not lesser than men in their artistic abilities but the problem is that women have continuously received inferior training. Women have also been perceived negatively by the society and the family and for this reason they have… Continue Reading...

Infancy and Toddler Development

Rolling over, sitting up, crawling, and then walking follow between the months of four and twelve for most children. Older infants/toddlers will began mimicking adult voices and making their first sound words as indicators. Cognitive Changes The cognitive changes associated with infancy and toddlerhood occur as a result of the child’s interaction with surroundings. At two months of age, the child should be paying attention to faces, following movement with the eyes and fussing if no new activities are provided after a while. By six months of age, the child should be bringing objects to the mouth to obtain… Continue Reading...

Goya Rodin and Modern Art

through the Ages 1. (Ch. 27) What is the interpretation of Goya's Saturn Devouring his children? The interpretation of Goya’s Saturn Devouring his children is based on the myth of Saturn who feared that his children would overthrow him, so he devoured them one by one to avoid that risk. Goya lived many centuries after this ancient myth of antiquity originated. However, his own contemporary situation reflected the old myth in terms of the way the powerful rulers of the time were frantically lashing out, trying to preserve their own power by destroying the least possible threat. The wild-eyed and… Continue Reading...

advance of closings so that families could make plans for their children accordingly. As Iverson and McPhee (2002) note, a school’s leaders must be true to the “communicative character of knowledge”—and the leaders of FBPS simply were not. Social Responsibilities and Impact on Stakeholders The social responsibilities demonstrated by FBPS were to students, parents, and investors—and the school failed on all three fronts. As a for-profit school, it had a duty to provide returns to investors—and yet by mishandling its transition period, it essentially destroyed its reputation and drove families away and back into the arms of the original… Continue Reading...

Vaccinations and the State Of Florida Identifying and Associating with Professional Coalition

Identifying and Associating With Professional Coalitions: Vaccinations and the State of Florida For school-age children, the state of Florida, according to the most recent data on its website (2018) requires a relatively standard battery of immunizations, including inoculations for diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis (Tdap), measles mumps and rubella (MMR), polio (IPV), Hepatitis B, chickenpox (Varicella). Some of these vaccinations have incurred controversy over the years, including claimed links to autism. Currently, for children medically able to be vaccinated Florida only permits religious exemptions from vaccinations. In other words, parents cannot opt their children out of vaccines purely due to personal conviction… Continue Reading...

Montreaux Chocolate Usa Case Study

demographic target of females aged 45-64, college educated, married with children, high household income, concerned about health and weight, is a strong choice of target. They have the income, because they are buying for themselves they have brand loyalty, and they are old enough to know what good chocolate is, and appreciate it. This demo, however, is not familiar with the brand name. The good news is that they are willing to experiment, so a smaller packaging size helps with that. It allows relatively risk-free experimentation, and sub-3.5 oz packaging just happens to have the highest growth. I would… Continue Reading...

Early Childhood Education and Piaget Theory

the most influential early childhood and developmental psychologists. Focusing primarily on childhood cognitive development, Piaget hypothesized that children used different logical schemas than adults, and also that children progress through stages of cognitive development as they acquire new knowledge from the world around them and incorporate that information into their mental constructs (McLeod, 2018). The four stages of cognitive development Piaget proposed include the sensorimotor stage, the preoperational stage, the concrete operational stage, and the formal operational stage. Piaget contributed tremendous understanding to how children adapt to new stimuli and changes in their environment, through the assimilation of new… Continue Reading...

The Housing Crisis and Insecurity and Poverty in America

to influence landlords (Desmond 3). Many of the single moms also need to lie to their children in order to protect them from the harsh realities of the world, or to insulate them from fear, anxiety, and pain. A few actually hide their children from landlords, who prefer not to rent to single mothers (Desmond 26). Some people effectively subvert the system in other ways, such as by “stealing electricity (Desmond 66). Tenants can sometimes pay off part of their rent via under-the-table work for landlords, a process that provides landlords with easy access to cheap or free labor… Continue Reading...

The behavioral aspect is what is alluded to in 1 John 3:18: “Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” The cognitive precedes the relational which precedes the behavioral, and yet all three flow into and out of one another so that they are mutually reinforcing. This paper will show how to know what the Christian Faith is one must first understand the cognitive aspects, then the relational aspects, and finally the behavioral aspects of the Faith.

To enhance its security, the city could provide all public transports with their own security detail. Cameras in all cars and stations could also be mounted to better give the public the impression that everything is watched. Conclusion In summation, the issue of public transportation is very important for the well-being of a city, as it helps to cut down on traffic congestion, reduces the potential… Continue Reading...

Comparing and Contrasting Dada and Surrealism

surrealist artists do with collage and assemblage. Collage and assemblage were children of these two movements: multimedia methods and means. Prior to Dada, art was neatly segregated into its constituent categories of sculpture, painting, literature, and the like. The Dada and surrealist movements gave birth to a new way of seeing potential in objects that were not used before as media in art. It was now possible to take manufactured goods and turn them into art, to paste together different types of media, or to incorporate words and other elements into art. Contemporary art in the twenty-first century owes… Continue Reading...

Issues That Affirm and Challenge My Assumptions I am challenged, however, by Popper’s insistence on the statement being subject to the criterion of falsifiability—and with good reason. I believe that Popper is correct to insist on this measure for fact must be distinguished through statement—i.e., through articulation of the idea; and I believe that Ayer and Kuhn would both agree, in spite of their different positions, whatever they may be, philosophically speaking. But what of Popper’s rejection… Continue Reading...

Direct to Consumer Marketing

industry advertising erectile-dysfunction pills in ways that would expose children to the images and products being marketed, in direct violation of the industry’s own guiding principles—which are really only there to give federal regulators the impression that the industry is policing itself and does not need federal oversight. The reality, as the researchers show, is that oversight is required because the companies are only paying lip service to the idea of ethical guidelines and are not in reality in the habit of abiding by them. How Direct to Consumer Advertising May Affect the Physician/Patient Relationship Direct to consumer advertising… Continue Reading...

Vaccines and the Smallpox Epidemic

in response to fears that vaccines contained heavy metals that were causing children to develop autism. Anti-vaccination fears in the past had their own bases—and not all of them were scientific. Some of them were cultural and legal: for example, Mariner et al. note that “the Depression had shattered the belief that individuals could always take care of themselves” (584) to such an extent that President Roosevelt felt the government should step to take make sure every citizen was being cared for. It was in a way the beginning of the welfare state in which personal responsibility was subsumed… Continue Reading...

What Did Goya Paint

Saturn Devouring His Son shows Saturn, the Roman god, who ate his children because he feared they would overthrow him. It is a cruel and grisly subject, but one that Goya felt reflected the world in which he lived where so much fighting, violence, and bloodshed was overwhelming Europe. The Protestant Revolution had led to wars (Laux); the French Revolution had led to wars (Holsti); Napoleon had invaded country after country, and the Spanish Inquisition was trying to root out crypto Jews (Elliot; Roth). In short, there was carnage everywhere, much of it being committed by those in power… Continue Reading...

Why America’s Parents are Failing Their children It’s not always the teachers’ fault that children fail to perform at a high level.  Parents also share a part in the blame.  They are the ones who set the tone at home.  They are the ones who set the example for behavior.  The problems in the world start and stop with the home life.  Parents need to step up and figure out what they can do to help their kids do better.

Student Discipline and Bullying

understood as the aggressive and unwanted traits espoused by school going children. The traits entail some perceived or real power imbalance. Some of the students will use this power (such as their physical strength, popularity, access to privileged information) to harm, blackmail or harm other students. This behavior has to be repeated or have the potential of being repeated for it to qualify as bullying (Illinois Legal Aid Online, 2018). This paper explores a bullying scenario and maps out a strategy to alleviate bullying among students. In doing so the paper quotes three cases (i.e. Goss v. Lopez, Tinker… Continue Reading...

They showed that children could be taught to respond to things (such as rats) in a positive light if the idea of fear were not associated to the creatures by others; likewise, they would pick up social behaviors the older they grew by observing the behaviors of those around them and imitating them. Social learning theory became a dominant idea in psychology and in criminology as researchers attempted to understand why individuals acted out or behaved in specific manners. Though the debate has never been solved, neither side has… Continue Reading...

Managing Change in Organizations

Introduction Protecting children bears a great deal of significance. One of the key ways of doing so is school bus safety all the way through the whole year. It is imperative to make certain that children are able to get to school and back to their homes safe and sound. Statistics indicate that in the 2018-19 school year, approximately 350,000 children across Arkansas will be getting on one of roughly 7,000 school buses on a daily basis (Times Record). When there are flashing red lights on a school bus that… Continue Reading...

from difficult situations,” Drake shows women saving themselves through education, raising children, and empowerment (Rebollo and Moras 124).     What is beautiful about the multiracial images of the women in Drake’s video is that they are working hard for what they are earning in jobs that have nothing to do with their bodies, whether they are executives, mothers, or students. The women in the video are elegantly dressed in evening gowns and work attire, rather than scantily clothed, and they are dressed for themselves, rather than the male gaze, which is notably absent in the video.

Pharmaceutical Companies and Physicians Appropriate Relationships

start sending doctors more expensive gifts such as vacations, cars, donations made to their children’s schools, bricks of gold, cash gifts that can evade reporting, or paying for repairs/renovations on physicians’ homes. Federal legislation needs to be rigorous and state that every single gift or financial token or assistance the doctors receive from pharmaceutical companies must be reported. Federal law should be as rigorous as humanly possible in this regards, but states should absolutely have the freedom to engage in more comprehensive requirements, if they so desire. As our textbook states “Vermont, for example, now bans most gifts to… Continue Reading...

For he that hath Dominion over the person of a man, hath Dominion over all that is his…”[footnoteRef:7] When looking at Rousseau’s belief that people are inherent social beings and within this belief, the social aspect underpins the political, one can see that utter nonsense of Hobbes’ idea of Dominion. What about Dominion over self? What about Dominion over property and the various definitions of property? Such an idea may be misconstrued into a means of controlling people regardless of their natural born rights. [6: Ernest… Continue Reading...

Commercials and the Media

Selling (to) Kids: Advertising, children, Youth and Commercial Culture Advertising for children and youth has always had a special appeal. Gen X’ers remember the Toys ‘R’ Us song, “I don’t want to grow up, I’m a Toys ‘R’ Us kid,” and link it to their childhood—even if they never went to a single Toys ‘R’ Us store. They invariably saw the commercials multiple times if they had a TV in their home. The commercials showed children blissfully happy because they had toys galore—and the aim of the ad campaign was to get… Continue Reading...

The Stages Of Childhood Development Physical Cognitive

and systems theories can all be integrated within the staged concept of development that Piaget proposed. Piaget shows how children develop physically, socially, and cognitively. Likewise, theories of childhood development can demonstrate how children develop self-awareness, empathy, and complex use of language. The four main stages of development include the sensorimotor, the preoperational, the concrete operational, and the formal operational. While far from being discreet stages with strong demarcations between them, empirical research in cognitive, behavioral, and biological sciences have shown that indeed children do exhibit specific features of psychosocial, cognitive, and physical development during the age brackets Piaget… Continue Reading...

He tried to shadow his children from his mob activities. Freud’s theory outlines that the human mind is categorized into three levels including the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious. The unconscious mind is considered to be a pool of emotional states, thoughts, urges and memories that are external to our conscious mindfulness. According to Freud, the unconscious goes on to impact a person’s behavior and experience, despite the fact one is oblivious of these underlying… Continue Reading...

The Relationship Of Reason to Faith

of child-like surrender to God, which has little to do with reasoning. Most children do not rationalize their way to truth. They feel it, sense it, intuit it, and gladly submit themselves to it, accepting things with a willing nature. The conversion of Mary Magdalene has aspects of this model in it, as she submitted herself fully to Christ when she wept and bathed his feet in her tears. It was a total conversion—different from the Apostles, such as Thomas, who did not even fully have faith until he felt the wounds in the side of Christ after the… Continue Reading...

Education and the Art Of Listening

of disobedience, God begins to teach them and their children in different ways. God instructs everyone in unique ways—so in that sense we are all learners and God is the ultimate teacher. For this reason I say it is more important that we be learners because that way we can hear what God is trying to tell us. Sometimes God speaks to us through others. Sometimes he uses actual teachers in a classroom, or friends, or works of art, or experience, or stories the way Christ used parables to teach His disciples. Nonetheless, we are all learners. As learners,… Continue Reading...

A grasp of the condition’s pathophysiology (both acute and chronic forms) will facilitate an understanding of how to diagnose and treat patients suffering from it. Experts’ asthma pathogenesis knowledge has greatly evolved during the past twenty-five years with scholars discovering several phenotypes of the condition (Lynn & Kushto-Reese, 2015). Pathophysiology of Acute Asthma Acute asthma intensification, or asthmatic attacks, take place through binding of inhaled antigens to mast cells performing immunoglobulin E (IgE).

Media Depictions Of Gender Role Stereotypes

to media type, such as news media versus advertisements, or children’s programming versus programming for adults. Similarly, gender stereotypes vary from culture to culture. Although gender stereotypes are always culturally embedded, the universality of patriarchal norms and institutions leads to some surprising similarities across cultures in terms of media depictions of gender. For instance, one of the methods used in the media to portray gender is through stereotypical physical appearances of characters. For example, female characters in children’s media will have features like long hair, whereas male characters will have large muscles (Knorr, 2017). Whereas big muscles immediately connote… Continue Reading...

The prevalence rates of lead poisoning readily reveal inequitable patterns, depending on sociological variables. “Over half a million children in the US today are poisoned with lead, with poorer black children living in housing built before 1950 most at risk,” (Raganathan 2016:18). Flint’s water crisis is defined by the problems directly linked to lead poisoning. As a result of government inaction, in Flint, Michigan, “all children under the age of six—nearly 9000 in total— are now being treated as if they were exposed to lead due to the contamination of the town’s water system,” (Ragnanthan 2016:18). Even trace amounts of… Continue Reading...

The TCKs are different from other children in that they have exposure to more than one culture and often know how to live in these cultures with equal comfort. The TCKs are also different from the other children since they have the ability to learn new languages different from their own first language. These factors make them unique from other children since they are prone to creating their own subcultures as a coping mechanism and protection measure. The other reason that makes them unique is that they are highly mobile as compared to… Continue Reading...

Classroom Management and Arrangement

Autism The arrangement of the classroom environment could effectively meet the individual needs of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), as the room is neatly divided, which helps ASD children delineate borders and boundaries, and bright colors are used to help convey important information—like the class schedule, vocabulary words on the board to learn, and so on. There is also plenty of space for peer interaction, which Bene, Banda and Brown (2014) note is helpful for peer-mediated instruction, as it allows students to discuss with one another and communicate more freely without obstacles getting the way. There are also several… Continue Reading...

Nursing Shortage Essay

nursing when they are still in grade school. Nursing should be presented to children as a career that is distinct from others in the healthcare field. Another way to prevent a nursing shortage is to expand and improve upon current nursing education programs. To prevent a nursing shortage, healthcare institutions need to change their organizational culture. Menial tasks need to be automated, liberating nurses to do what they were trained to do, which is to help patients or to improve the caliber of healthcare through leadership and public policy. Nurses need to be more empowered and to receive remuneration… Continue Reading...

Effects Of Potable Water on Nutrition

45 percent of global deaths and nearly 7.4 percent of the world's children are at risk of undernutrition. Malnourished children have weakened immune systems that make them more susceptible to diarrhea when they are exposed to dirty water. The lack of clean water means that individuals will be living in non-sanitized environments and this increases the risk of suffering from diarrhea. People suffering from diarrhea will eat less and they are unable to absorb the nutrients they need from the food they eat, which results in malnutrition. As Esrey and Habicht (1986) posits diarrhea can occur after a person… Continue Reading...

With fewer people paying into the system there is also the risk of there not being enough Medicare subsidies to go around. However, it is not ethical for one person to have access to more services than another. Everyone should have equal access to care—but that is an issue that will need to be decided by law maker as they… Continue Reading...

with unsanitary latrines, inadequate water and food for the children, and dilapidated classrooms. These types of problems are exacerbated by entrenched poverty in the community, leading to high dropout rates and low rates of literacy that in turn lead to lack of opportunity for self-empowerment, upward mobility, and social change. Crime, drug use, and child marriage have all resulted. Unable to accept these affairs, I raised $100,000 for Punjabi schools. I organized fundraising events that drew attention to the need for ongoing financial support, and set in motion a trend that will undoubtedly bear fruit in the near future… Continue Reading...

Policy Implementation Dietary Guidelines

in setting the standards for the National School Lunch Program, on which many children are dependent for their main source of nutritional calories for the day at low or reduced cost. Physicians are influenced by its guidelines, and ordinary Americans are influenced by the guidelines when they make decisions in the grocery store. As noted by the RWJF, a number of significant modifications were made in the most recent 2015 guidelines, including limiting the sugar added to the individual’s diet to no more than 10% of daily calories (Goldman, 2015). It should be noted that this does not apply… Continue Reading...

Health Care Policy Change

because of the poor health and loss of life for the productive young people. African children who are less than 5 years have seven times greater chances of dying than children from Europe. In similar manner people aged between 15 years and 59 years of age from Africa have a 4.5 times higher chance of dying than the people living in Europe. Maternal mortality in Africa is 16 times more than Europe (World Health Organization, 1999). Transnational trade is one of the major risks to global health. This is because globalization through transnational trading has led to increased spread of… Continue Reading...

Young Children Impact Of Television Watching

The Effects of Watching Television in Young children The current technological era has ensnared the young generation into a web of virtual reliance, making them dependent on various types of media outlets. The user – friendly components of media outlets have equipped the youngsters with the ability to customize any content into their own individual preferences.

Some of the weaknesses include teachers does not have the required knowledge to use the provided documents to teach these students. Conclusion Most teachers believe and know how important guarantying a culturally diverse student’s rights can be.

For example, some parents might deny their children to go into a swimming class with other students. These students… Continue Reading...

Rhetorical Analysis Audre Lorde the Fourth Of July

the effect of disarming the reader of prejudices or preconceived notions—for children have none of these: their eyes and ears are open with curiosity and wonder. They want to know the world. The trouble for Lorde was that, at that age—having been protected from racism by attending a Catholic school in which she was the only non-white—she had no idea that segregation existed in society. Her trip to D.C.—the nation’s capital—on the nation’s day of birth opened her eyes to the reality of Jim Crow. As a result, the essay is filled with a righteous kind of anger that… Continue Reading...

Paul and the Timothy Letters

By continuing to adhere to a model that does not work, children are not receiving the proper education they need to be able to understand the world and not buy into the false teachers of today. By adding that a possible solution is student-directed learning Gina goes back to the Timothy chapter. Saul was a student of God through his encounter with Jesus. However, he then became a teacher and passed on what he learned through his letters. However, the transition back to Paul felt as though it did not cover adequately what the chapters were about.

An Argument in Support Of Vaccination

promote the health and wellbeing of populations. In that regard, therefore, there is need to vaccinate all children against vaccine-preventable diseases so as to avoid infection. This would be the only logical move in seeking to save the lives of millions of children who are at risk of various infections. According to Whitney, Zhou, Singleton, and Schuchat (356), it is estimated that “among children born during 1994– 2013, vaccination will prevent an estimated 322 million illnesses, 21 million hospitalizations, and 732,000 deaths over the course of their lifetimes.” Next, vaccines save a lot of money and time for both… Continue Reading...

Deaf Culture

in Deaf education. Of course, Elliot is not alone among children who had been exposed to hearization in their homes and communities and later realize the importance of shifting their perspective to what could be called Deaf ethnocentrism. Humphries & Humphries (2011) note, “Deaf children from hearing parents may, and frequently do, ‘migrate’ to Deaf communities,” (p. 153). Migrating to a Deaf community might temporarily entail extricating oneself from the hearing, as if in a language immersion course. Plunged into the Deaf culture, Elliot was able for the first time to locate her soul, her true identity that could only… Continue Reading...

Addiction Treatment Alcohol Addiction

addicts themselves, but also those who are closest to them. For instance, children and spouses of addicts often bear the brunt of the destructive behaviors of alcoholics. They too need help and support. Al-Anon comes in handy in this endeavor. Thus, while the focus of AA is on the addicts themselves, Al-Anon concerns itself with family members and friends of alcoholics. When it comes to the treatment of alcoholism, there are a number of treatment options that could be adopted. Some of these include, but they are not limited to, finding help in mutual-support groups, use of medications, and… Continue Reading...

of this circumstance is that diarrhoea is generally avoidable, and the demises of 361 000 children below the age of 5 years could be evaded each year if these risk factors were taken into consideration. In the regions where water is not easily or readily accessible, people individuals may make the decision that handwashing is not an important activity, thereby adding to the probability of diarrhoea and other diseases (World Health Organization). As a nursing major and an advocate for universal health, I believe that ensuring that there is accessibility to clean and safe water for numerous populations across… Continue Reading...

They are like abandoned children—people marginalized by their own society which has essentially given free reign to the corporations to reshape the rules and manage the system in a way that benefits themselves primarily. The society has cannibalized itself under hypercapitalism and the people are left with the scraps, which are few. Thus, they revolt, as they have done in Paris, rejecting their leader’s leadership and challenging his plans to continue to further raise taxes and the economic burden they have endured thus far. In conclusion, the people want to be… Continue Reading...

Research shows that “prior exposure to abandonment, rejection, abuse, and violence in their childhood years, which may have resulted in poor coping skill development,” (Mailloux, 2014, p. 921-922). Antagonism and intense hatred of their parents led to the boys’ distorted thinking in other ways. For example, Michael claimed they “liked firearms because his parents hated them,” (Couri, 2016, p. 1).

reason that the adolescent age is quite challenging. This is because adolescent children have a part of their neurobiological system that is still under development. The brain faculties that govern judgment, self-control, and decision making are not fully developed yet for adolescent children. Adolescents are more susceptible to taking bigger risks. They are therefore more likely to dry drug use at this age. Drug Addiction Prevention Prevention of drug addiction is possible. Research outcomes have revealed that drug addiction prevention programs that involve the community, media, schools, and families are more productive in the alleviation of drug abuse, misuse,… Continue Reading...

Therefore, even females are likely to display masculine traits and values as their male colleagues do (Hofstede, 1984). A country like Sweden is more on feminism. Most of their organizations are managed through negotiation, consensus and discussions. Masculine countries are characterized to be having strong egos and achievement and money is of more importance to them. Feminist countries has got work-place flexibility and balance, there focus… Continue Reading...

Masterpiece - Seeing Yourself As God's Work Of Art Changes Everything

We have a society whereby people no longer appreciate the intrinsic value of things – instead, they are mesmerized by the price. It is for this reason that our world is in tatters. Morals and values have been thrown out of the window and replaced with materiality, which breeds immorality (Harris, 2011). The situation is likely to get worse if nothing is done, fast!

Should Schools Teach Sex Education

school students are taught about HIV/AIDS and must take a Life Management Skills course. The age at which children should be exposed to sex education topics is judged differently according to nation, state and culture. In Canada, sex education is begun as early as elementary school. In Florida, sex is taught as something that young persons need to avoid. The realities of sex are things that should be taught but ultimately the community and the families in that community will have to make the decisions on what type of lessons they want taught. Florida families may prefer that abstinence be… Continue Reading...

There are no children in the picture and the man is not keeping a great deal of distance between himself and the woman—though he is not cuddling up with her, and the glass of Schlitz beer is in between them, indicating that the beer itself can help to serve as a barrier and keep a man from becoming too effeminate or domesticated. In other words, it could be viewed as a shield. In this sense, “licensed withdrawal” is being depicted as the woman is… Continue Reading...

The fact sheets explain why and how vaccines work to empower readers with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions. By showing why vaccines are safe and effective, the APHA can help dispel misinformation like that related to the unethical anti-vaccination scare. Interestingly, the APHA avoids unnecessarily antagonistic language on their website, instead opting for the type of objectivity that can stimulate direct action. The APHA also links to media articles that comment on their action related to vaccinations, even when the articles do not portray… Continue Reading...

Single Gender Classes in Education

to go. Integration of the genders, supposedly, promoted a better sense of equality among the school children and promoted the idea that boys and girls were the same. Of course, as any social neuroscientist will tell, biological and social differences abound between boys and girls—and what educators have discovered since the integration shift is that, academically speaking, boys and girls do better when they are separated and educated in their own classrooms (Davis). Even as ideological organizations like the ACLU oppose the idea of same sex classrooms, teachers are more and more in favor of them because they notice… Continue Reading...

Evil was thus introduced into earthly paradise by way of man’s disobedience and God’s just punishment of man’s sin. Today, man must combat not only his own weak will and desire to serve self over God, but also he must combat the temptations of Satan, who seeks to… Continue Reading...

She found herself dedicated to the children of workers in the area and pushed for a redistricting of the region so that their children could receive an education. She was, like her father, a progressive who did not settle for the status quo but pushed to make things better for all those who were around her (Pryor, 2018).

Air pollution can harm children and impact their growth, lead to respiratory issues and more (Simeonova, Currie, Nilsson & Walker, 2018).  And the World Health Organization has classified air pollution as a cancer-causing agent that leads to lung and bladder cancer in people who have to breathe in air pollutants on a regular basis (Simon, 2013). Those individuals who lived in communities that are nearby airports are thus at great risk of contracting illnesses and cancer as a result of their exposure to the pollutants emitted… Continue Reading...

How Germans View the Holocaust

Holocaust Memory in East and West Germany Introduction In Bernhard Schlink’s Guilt about the Past, the author writes about it what it is like to live under the “long shadow of the past” (26). Schlink states that the Germans felt oppressed by this guilt that their soldiers committed. They are happy to forget it, for example, when the German soccer team scores a goal at the World Cup and shouts, “We are somebody again!” as though the goal erased everything, as though the German soccer team somehow brought respectability to the German nation once more. It was an instance of… Continue Reading...

Ikea and Unbonded Child Laborers

not viewed as heinously as it was in the West: on the contrary, it was socially acceptable because children worked under the guidance of their parents and learned their trade in this manner. To break ties with a supplier that was simply engaging in a traditional custom of its country could be hypocritical. This paper examines the case and provides a recommendation for IKEA to assess whether the child laborers are bonded or unbonded—and if the latter then the company should continue to source from the supplier without worry as this would actually help Indian families. Case Analysis An… Continue Reading...

Gender Status Impact Access to Social Political and Economic Resources

In spite of these tasks’ social and economic value, and their role in ensuring societal well-being, they aren’t taken into consideration in GDP (gross domestic product) calculations and labor force surveys. This care economy has been projected to possibly amount to 10-39% of GDP. Domestic care initiatives have been developed in certain settings where demands aren’t adequately… Continue Reading...

Ethical and Legal Dilemmas in Counseling

most important ethical principles in counseling is confidentiality. Clients—including children—are entitled to confidentiality. The law generally protects the client’s right to confidentiality, too, which is why counselors always need to keep confidentiality in mind when working with sensitive populations. Clients will have the right to sue counselors who breach confidentiality. Counselors could inadvertently breach confidentiality, such as neglecting to safeguard client records. For this reason, counselors need to protect client data when it is stored digitally as well as in printed formats.  The reason behind client confidentiality is clear: the counseling profession depends on the maintenance of trust. Clients… Continue Reading...

Analysing Individual Family History

maintaining some of our family traditions and cultures have been beneficial. A majority of children will follow in the footsteps of their parents, but some will create their own paths. This is demonstrated by Walker (1973) where one of the daughters has a taste for the finer things in life as compared to her mother who appreciates the little that she gets. Family narratives are the best ways for a family to create a sense of identity among its members. Storytelling has been used for generations to pass on information from the older generation to the younger generations. This… Continue Reading...

The morality of their actions is determined, according to this theory, by whether their behavior matches the duty they owe. The utilitarian perspective is a little different in that it determines the right course of action by asking what the greatest good for the greatest number of people is. So neither duty nor what might be deemed virtuous or ideal is used to determine the right behavior in… Continue Reading...

Family is probably the most important agent of socialization in the younger stages of development, but once the individual begins to have a sense of independence, that socialization process kicks over into a different direction and the individual wants to… Continue Reading...

Why the Beatles Were Loved

it was not the case in their case, as their parents gave their children “encouragement” to follow their musical ambitions (Laing 17).

worshipped as the goddess of fertility (most likely because she had so many lovers and so many love- children).

The Mis-education Of the Negro by Carter G. Woodson

cultural values that underlie racism in America. The school system effectively socializes children, as the author points out. Woodson demonstrates some of the many ways the institution of education serves to perpetuate racism. One way education perpetuates racism is by brainwashing black students into believing in their own inferiority (Wesley & Perry, n.d., p. 1). Black persons are depicted in positions of subservience rather than in positions of power, depicted as pitiful or lowly as opposed to being heroic. History is also skewed to undermine the contributions made by non-whites. In the opening chapter of Mis-Education, Woodson also claims that… Continue Reading...
