Condoms do not, of course, affect the rate of transmission by other means, such as intravenous drug use or transfusions. But they do lower the rate of transmission because a lot of AIDS and… Continue Reading...

on that of the buyer and consumer; since the State might just as well forbid him to drink wine, as purposely make it impossible for him to obtain it."[footnoteRef:10] The prohibition of alcohol is done in the name of limiting social disorder but there is also harm done to the liberty of those who wish to drink.

Consumer Protection Memo

Consumer Protection Memo: Consumer Protection In their article in the Harvard Business Review, Robinson, Viscusi & Zeckhauser (2016) argue that consumer warning labels are not effective.

Most of the consumer warning labels place the same emphasis on both small and huge risks. Such a warning system, according to the authors of the article, is of… Continue Reading...

Alcohol Use and Sex Crimes

Social science researchers can use either qualitative or quantitative strategies to develop informed and timely answers to their research questions, but these two approaches involve analyzing fundamentally different data sets. On the one hand, qualitative researchers can use various methods such as case studies, ethnographic studies, phenomenological studies, grounded theory, narrative and/or content analyses (Neuman, 2009). On the other hand, social science researchers can use quantitative strategies such as observational studies, correlational research, experimental, quasi-experimental and survey designs (Neuman, 2009). While both qualitative and quantitative research questions seek to gain new insights into a given phenomenon, there are also basic… Continue Reading...

Laws on Rape, Murder, Aggravated Assault, and Robbery

Crimes Committed Against Persons in the United States The United States is one of the world's super powers. Like any other country, it experiences the challenge of crimes committed against people too. The FBI has shown that the rate of violent crimes committed in the US has been declining for the past two decades. Violent crimes can be classified into types that include rape, murder, aggravated assault, and robbery. Statistically, the rate of crimes committed to people in 2016 decreased by 1.1% when it is compared with those reported in 2015. The rates of crimes against people vary across regions.… Continue Reading...

Importance Of Being Tentative

example, if a waiter is told by a patron that they want to drink Pepsi, they will often recite back that they want Pepsi, just to confirm that the patron was heard or to verify that the patron was heard correctly (Patterson, 2013). Consensus is the final point that will be covered and this one is fairly basic, even if the path to the same can sometimes be circuitous and problematic. A consensus becomes necessary when there is a problem and there are disparate views on how to resolve said problem. A consensus is found when there is a… Continue Reading...

If we'd all stuck with our first dream, the world would be overrun with cowboys and princesses. – Stephen Colbert Many young people have a general idea about what they “want to be when they grow up,” but as the epigraph above makes clear, these ideas tend to change over time as they learn more about the world and what types of occupations are available to them. To this end, career counselors can facilitate this process by helping students learn more about their viable career choices… Continue Reading...

Torture and Interrogation Essay

Deprivation of sleep: Pending their interrogations, depriving the detainees of sleep. * Deprivation of food and drink:  Subjecting the detainees to a reduced diet during their stay at the center and pending interrogations.60 “These "carefully chosen and measured techniques” are designed to evoke extreme physical, mental, and psychological suffering on the part of detainees, but they also cause a concomitant negative social and political impact on nations, including the United States, that continue to employ torture methods regardless of the justification.61 There are some fundamental differences between the types of interrogation methods that are used by law enforcement agencies and… Continue Reading...

Keeping Driving Age at or Above 16 Years Old

Young Drivers Perhaps it is unfair to label all younger drivers as reckless and dangerous. At the very least, they are most certainly less experienced and adept at driving, on average. Since a firm and enforced age is the best way to regulate who can drive for the first time, that is the method that should remain. On average, teen drivers are restricted or banned from driving for several reasons. Those reasons include insufficient brain development, lack of responsibility and a propensity to not pay proper attention. While typecasting people based on age is not always fair, there are reasons… Continue Reading...

Reforms Needed for Three Strikes Law

Define the Problem The defined and existing problem is going to vary in scope and definition depending on who is doing the defining. However, there are some clear and obvious problems with the “three strikes” law. The policy itself was meant to address a problem. However, that policy has created a new set of problems. Indeed, there are situations where three-time violent felons are justifiably put away for twenty-five years to life. However, the major problem with the policy are the human and budgetary costs that are created by people being thrown in jail for life for minor offenses (“Ewing… Continue Reading...

Healthcare Transcultural and the Amish Community

A largely insular community since their initial settlement in the United States, the Amish community presents unique challenges for healthcare workers. The Amish eschew modern technology, including many of the tools and techniques used in modern medicine. In fact, the Amish community also forbids higher education (Adams & Leverland, 1986). Misconceptions and misunderstandings about the Amish further complicate healthcare decisions and relationships between healthcare providers and Amish patients. For example, it is commonly assumed that the Amish “lack the preventive practices of immunizations and prenatal care,” (Adams & Leverland, 1986, p. 58). While the rates of immunizations are relatively low… Continue Reading...

Anthropological Observations at a Salad Bar

Salad bars have come a long way from places that sell iceberg lettuce and tomato slices under fluorescent lights and sneeze guards. The salad bar I visited was located within a Whole Foods, once of the most expensive grocery stores in the area. It is a popular place for lunchtime dining and many busy professionals 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… Continue Reading...

Law Enforcement Abuses in Investigations

1 Times and Trayvon The police unit that responded to the Trayvon Martin killing did not do a thorough inspection. They did not even know that Zimmerman’s car was there until his wife attempted to move it. They did not thoroughly canvas the neighborhood and knock and doors—otherwise they would have probably learned that Trayvon was a guest there at his father’s girlfriend’s place. The unit did not even have a homicide division because there were so few murders in the region. For that reason, it may be understood that there were gaps in the procedural work: they were simply… Continue Reading...

Reminiscing on My Teens

The traditional adage is that it takes an entire village to raise a child. In my case, this expression has a certain degree of validity. As I reminisce about my adolescence, there are a number of different experiences I have had which are directly related to my environment or surrounding ecosystem at the time. The best way to categorize this environment is in accordance to Bronfenbrenner’s ecological systems theory, which includes a number of different stratifications for a child’s milieu. Contextualizing my teenage years through this psychological lens, as well as others such as social learning theory andPiaget’s childhood cognitive… Continue Reading...

Fracking Policy Analysis

1. Executive summary While the extraction of natural gas by means of hydraulic fracturing is a decade- long practice, of late, it has witnessed immense development owing to advancements in the area of horizontal drilling which enables gas and oil operators to now harness earlier- unprofitable natural gas reserves within rock formations. Extant extraction- related policies combine state-federal alliances and voluntary endeavors by private organizations. More unprejudiced, scientific studies providing details on how fracturing and extraction potentially affect environmental media like water and air are essential, in addition to those focusing on natural gas surges’ long- term effects on local… Continue Reading...

College Debt

The problem Of late, an alarming hike is being witnessed in college tuition fees. This, coupled with books, housing, supplies, transport and food expenses, leads to unmanageable debt for college students. A majority of financial experts suggest maximum borrowing to amount to one’s anticipated earnings during one’s first year following graduation. But the hike in tuition fees renders this suggestion hard to follow. Nearly 50% of collegegoers today consider quitting college midway owing to debt incurred. Unable to meet these expenses, an increasing number of pupils are actually quitting college. Meanwhile, other pupils have no option but to seek full-time… Continue Reading...

Water Conservation

A) The water from my hometown in the Greater Cincinnati region is produced by the Miller Treatment Plant, which takes surface water from the Ohio River and is responsible for providing almost all of the region’s drinking water. Water is first tested before entering the treatment plant and the region has a number of alerts in place to allow it to proactively monitor the water situation. For example, there is a detection system used on the Ohio River that “warns treatment plants downstream about spills so that measures can be taken before the spill reaches water intakes” (GCWW, 2017).

Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink the Power Of Thinking Without Thinking

Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking suggests that there is great power in the intuitive leaps or insights the human mind is capable of generating, that the “smallest components of our everyday lives—the content and origin of those instantaneous impressions and conclusions that spontaneously arise whenever we meet a new person or confront a complex situation or have to make a decision under conditions of stress” are often what matters more than logic (Gladwell, 2005, p.16). Even something as simple as an ordinary conversation can yield insights about something as complex as a marriage. Gladwell uses examples… Continue Reading...

How Obesity Affects Epidemiology

consumption. A shifting trend has been witnessed in kinds of consumed food and drink as well (e.g., the growth in carbonated beverages and other refined carbohydrates’ consumption that offsets lower fat ingestion). Food accessibility and cost influencers such as commercial policies impact individual choices with regard to unhealthy and nutritious foods. Calorie-packed meals are typically priced cheap as compared to bulky foods low on calories. Once again, applying Egger and coworkers’ epidemiologic triad, food-linked vectors work together with cultural trends and obesity settings for creating obesity within the host. Progressive obesity-fostering environments and agents combine to give rise to… Continue Reading...

Crime and Punishment in the American Colonies

What crime existed in the colonies? How was this different or the same as in the lands from where colonists came? Although the early colonists clearly brought with them vestiges of their previous culture and country, living in the New World produced new social and economic factors that gave rise to new worldviews and also new forms of crime. But initially, there was relatively little crime. For many early colonists, religious cohesion, the lack of diversity within their society, and above all a desire for survival meant that crimes such as murder and robbery were scarce, particularly in Puritan New… Continue Reading...

Utilitarianism and Environmentalism in Ethics

Introduction Is utilitarianism an effective approach to environmental ethics? Behaviors that demonstrate personal and collective responsibility to the environment can lead to tangible short-term and long-term objectives that benefit a large number of people. Reducing pollution, limiting deforestation, preserving natural resources, protecting sensitive ecosystems, and mitigating climate change bring about the greatest good for the greatest number, what John Stuart Mill (2017) refers to as summum bonum, the fundamental principle of utilitarianism (p. 1). Therefore, most environmentally conscious policies, business practices, and personal behaviors can be viewed in utilitarian terms. Explanation of Theory Utilitarianism is a consequentialist ethical theory, which… Continue Reading...

to abstain from alcohol entirely, but simply not binge drink or drink excessively to the point of ruining their health. Temperance and magnanimity also enable the virtuous person to be a good listener, and hear all sides of every story. Instead of judging others for their religious or political beliefs, a temperate and magnanimous person cultivates a balanced point of view that takes into account why other people think, feel, and act the way they do. The people who insist that their position is the only right one can be considered extremists, and therefore lack the virtues of temperance… Continue Reading...

be fully realized. It is a clear desire for all Christians to “ drink together from the same chalice, and to eat together the bread that is the Lord himself,” (Allen, 2006, p. 1). Communion ecclesiology envisions a church that is divinely guided towards a unitary purpose, even in world of nine billion souls. “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus,” (Galatians 3:28). The Bible offers strong theological foundations and scriptural support for a corpus Christi that can accommodate for the diverse needs of its people. Jesus’s… Continue Reading...

My Papa’s Waltz Poem Analysis

that the father has a hard life, leading him to drink too heavily: “the whiskey on your breath / could make a small boy dizzy,” (lines 1-2). While not fully excusing the father, the speaker does want to convey his empathy and understanding. For example, the father has a “palm caked hard by dirt,” representing manual labor (line 14). It is ambiguous whether the father’s “battered” knuckle is a result of his beating his child or from his work (line 10). Although the speaker’s clinging to his father seems like complicity in domestic violence, there is a tone of… Continue Reading...

Global Ecological Civilization Essay

Introduction The global ecological crisis is the largest challenge which humanity has ever had to face (Gare, 2017). Besides, abusing the natural resources, our present method of consumption and production of goods, all modeled on economic production and not based on bio-capability, is jeopardizing the living conditions of humans, yet simultaneously changing the social foundations of human beings. International threats and dangers evolved when the social fabric of the ecological and social system exceeds and supersedes its environmental counterpart. Global environmental or ecological threats and dangers are not just social-psycho constructs created for promoting a new method of social regulation on the people.… Continue Reading...

Juvenile Delinquency Essay

Introduction In the past, there was no such term as “juvenile delinquent” or “juvenile delinquency” within 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… Continue Reading...

Bartleby the Scrivener Analysis Essay

to the most. He is akin to the straw stirring the metaphorical “ drink” of the short story. Turkey Turkey is a supporting character that is one of the narrator’s original copyists. The narrator describes him as short and around the same age as himself. The narrator suggests that Turkey is reasonably productive before noon but then drinks too much at lunch, which makes him sloppy and disruptive for the rest of the day. He drops things, is messy with his inkstand, leaves blots on all the papers. The narrator constantly compares his ruddy complexion to that of a heap… Continue Reading...

My Papa's Waltz Analysis Essay

the Papa in the title of the poem. The fact that whiskey is traditionally a masculine drink only furthers this association. The mere mention of whiskey creates a sense of imbalanced foreboding, as most readers are well aware that alcohol can fuel child-abuse-centered rages, particularly among parents who are in poor control of themselves. The following line, “Could make a small boy dizzy;/” only confirms that the person in the poem has consumed an ungodly amount of whiskey and is so drunk, just being in the mere vantage point of this adult’s breath could have disorienting impact on a… Continue Reading...

King David

Introduction King David is a significant character in the Bible because he foreshadows the coming of Christ, Who was foretold to be a descendant of the House of David. David’s faith also foreshadows the faith that Christ sought among His people (yet in most cases failed to find). While the Bible is the only historical source of information for King David, other than the Tel Dan Stele in the archeological field, an analysis of the person of David is revealing as it sheds much light on the character of God and the merciful nature of the Divine Being Who represents… Continue Reading...

Trade and International Business

China Unit 5 A neo-mercantilist trade policy is defined as a situation where the state plays an active role in shaping trade, building a close relationship with the country's businesses. In doing this, the state will take steps to encourage exports, discourage imports, and generally seek to create the conditions where the nation's producers can thrive (Thoma, 2009). Based on this definition, it is hard to argue against the idea that China is employing a neomercantilist policy. The PRC exerts strong control over imports, while providing a wide range of support to exporters. These supports include currency manipulation – not… Continue Reading...

Tammany Hall in New York City

The History of Crime and Punishment in the United States The crime of Edward Lawless—false registration—was an election crime that was as much an issue in 1904 as it is today in 2018 (and one could argue that it is even worse today than it was back then). Essentially, election fraud had been a huge problem in New York, what with the Tammany Hall government attempting to get its Irish Catholic supporters to register at multiple locations in order to vote early and vote often (and thus keep Tammany Hall in power). Teddy Roosevelt, as a member of the Police… Continue Reading...

My Papa's Waltz The poem My Papa's Waltz is about the relationship between an abusive father and his child, who is the narrator and the point of perspective.

He is trying to hold onto the love for his father, despite his father being an abusive alcoholic. The waltz in the poem is of course not relating to a dance. The waltz is the metaphor for the father's movements… Continue Reading...

We would also talk: I would first start by talking about myself, where I come from, how old I am, what I was doing there, why I was doing it, and what I wanted to do with my life. Then I would ask the patients questions about their lives to get them to begin talking. In most cases, I learned quite a lot about the patients and saw that they enjoyed sharing this information… Continue Reading...

Rebranding Diet Coke

Coke needs to reach out to influential snapchatters and instagram stars and pay them to drink the product on camera and in their shots. It has to be done in a manner that looks organic, and that is clearly not a paid promotion. This is important because so many millenials are sensitive to advertising and what is and is not authentic. Thus, if diet coke is presented in a way that looks like all these major influencers are naturally gravitating to it, then it is likely that these millenials will also naturally gravitate to it. Millenials often don’t trust… Continue Reading...

Supreme Court Sodomy Cases Rulings

Right to Privacy and Consenting Adults: Examining the Sodomy Cases The 1986 case of Bowers v. Hardwick represents the continued legacy of homophobia of the era. This case demonstrates how homophobia has amounted to longstanding oppression for gay people, and has continually thwarted justice from protecting them or ever serving them. Michael Hardwick was in his late 20s when he was bartending at a gay bar in Georgia. He threw a beer bottle into an outdoor trash can and was written up by the police for public drinking (Bazelon, 2012). The terms of this citation come under suspicion as its… Continue Reading...

Thanksgiving Essay

Introduction Turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and pumpkin pie. These are the things that come to the mind of most people when they think about Thanksgiving—and that’s fine. Many major holidays and cultural traditions do revolve around food as a form of significance and celebration.

Food is a major human biological event; it sustains life and health, is enjoyable and is a massive part of major economies. However, thanksgiving is so much more than a rich meal and expressing fleeting sentiments of gratitude. The… Continue Reading...

Cow’s Milk and Human Consumption

recent years, because more and more adults are refusing to drink milk. A glass of milk contains “…acidic animal protein that leeches calcium from the bones, pus cells, bovine growth hormone, feces, antibiotics, and a whole lot of unnecessary fat, cholesterol and calories — all of which create a terrible imbalance in the body” (Verma, 2014). More and more adults have been discovering issues in their tolerance of milk. Cow’s milk is loaded with protein—three times the amount of protein of human milk. This overload of protein means that it creates proven metabolic disturbances in humans as well as discovered detrimental… Continue Reading...

Interstitial Cystitis (ic) Treatment Using Cam Modalities

Abstract The prevalence of interstitial cystitis (IC) has seen different treatment methods that have been aimed at reducing the level of pain and ensuring that the patients are comfortable. However, the continued failure of most of the conventional methods to treat the condition has necessitated physicians to recommend complementary and alternative methods of managing the condition. An analysis of the complementary and alternative methods (CAM) modalities is therefore, critical in understanding the different conceptual attributes that are significant in addressing the problem. IC is a condition that is characterized by chronic pain or discomfort in the bladder and the surrounding… Continue Reading...

However, the continued failure of most of the conventional methods to treat the condition has necessitated physicians to recommend complementary and alternative methods of managing the condition. An analysis of the complementary and alternative methods (CAM) modalities is therefore, critical in understanding the different conceptual attributes that are significant in addressing the problem. IC is a condition that is characterized by chronic pain or discomfort in the bladder and the surrounding… Continue Reading...

Natural Disasters Terrorist Events and Technological Disasters

Natural Disasters Natural disasters are incidents caused by the forces of nature and occur independently of human intervention, including geophysical events like earthquakes and weather events like storms. The main types of natural disasters include those caused by geophysical activity like earthquakes and volcanoes, hydrological events like floods and avalanches, climatological or meteorological events like hurricanes, and biological disasters such as diseases spread by animals (IRFC, 2018). Some natural disasters can also have multiple causes, such as landslides or mudslides, which can be caused by hydrological, climatological, and/or geophysical activity (CDC, 2018). Wildfires are another type of natural disaster that… Continue Reading...

The Outbreak Cdc Exercises and Quiz Responses

The exercises (6.1 to 6.9) address the core principles of investigating an outbreak using epidemiological methods including statistical analysis. Outbreaks are defined as “unexpected events,” which often receive sufficient media attention to warrant rapid public relations or action responses (Lesson 6: Investigating an Outbreak). Therefore, it is important to understand the principles of epidemiological methods like those offered in the exercises. In addition to the exercises (6.1 to 6.9) the CDC also offers the self-assessment quiz. The exercises and the quiz collectively summarize the main issues related to outbreaks and how an epidemiologist would address different types of outbreaks in… Continue Reading...

Employee Monitoring and Communication

(Work) Employee Communication and Monitoring According to Miller and Hollowell (2016), “the emergence of Facebook and other social networking sites has created a number of legal and ethical issues for businesses” (p. 98). In the recent past, there have been instances of people being fired because of posts or utterances made on their social media accounts. This is more so the case given that the line between professional life and personal life is increasingly being blurred, thanks to the prevalence of social media. One such instance involved Ashley Payne. Summary of the Case Payne, a high school teacher, was forced… Continue Reading...

Devising a Documentary Project

Devising a Documentary Project PART 1  1. I would like to make a documentary about working in a busy movie theater. It will show what it is like for employees working behind the scenes of the movie-going experience: from the people running the projections booths, to the concessionists serving popcorn and cold drinks, to the ushers cleaning up after patrons when the movie is over. The documentary will highlight the more humorous sequences and areas that result from working in the service-related area and often being invisible to the public. 2. This mode will be a combination of direct cinema… Continue Reading...

Social and Environmental Challenges Facing Megacities

Overcrowding in Megacities Cities are increasingly getting larger, which results in the increased emergence of megacities worldwide. Megacities are increasingly emerging in developing nations due to mass urbanization. One of the major contributors to the rise of megacities worldwide is globalization and rapid technological advancements. By increasing connectivity, globalization has contributed to mass urbanization as people look for better environments for their socioeconomic growth and development. Globalization has transformed the nature of urbanization by making people’s movement to become global rather than intra-national rural-urban migration. According to Heyzer et al. (2016) the rise of megacities worldwide is an indicator that… Continue Reading...

Organizational Communication and Culture

The learning schedule has also been designed to allow socialization by providing time when students are free from curriculum and can engage in work… Continue Reading...

Alice Walker’s “everyday Use” and Individual Identity

‘black momma’ media image.  A beautiful, demure, light brown woman, she didn't drink, smoke, curse, or say things like ‘Lawd Jesus’ or ‘hallelujah,’ nor did she cook chitlins or gumbo” (Kelley 5). Instead, Kelley writes, her mother was a vegetarian who did yoga. As a half-Hispanic, half-European career member of the U.S. Navy and a former military brat, I similarly defy such conventional categories and seek to make my own new ones. My identity categories do not define me, but nor do I shun them like Dee did when she was younger. I feel confident of who I am,… Continue Reading...

The Value Of Having Brand Equity

manager to present the arguments for and against extending the Coke brand to a new cola drink. What would be the arguments for and against extending the Coke brand to a new cola drink? The arguments for extending the Coke brand to a new cola drink would be that Coke has great brand equity so would automatically give consumers an incentive to purchase the new beverage if the Coke name were applied to it in some manner. People who love Coke tend to love other Coke products and become loyal consumers of Coke sodas. If given the option, they’ll… Continue Reading...

Unhealthy Behavior Drinking Inadequate Water

Drinking Inadequate water One must drink enough pure water on a daily basis for good health. However, many people forego water and concentrate on other fluids which have additional ingredients. These cannot be compared to water when it comes to health benefits. (McLennan, 2000) Take the example of young kids, who mostly prefer sweet drinks such artificial juice and sodas. Likewise, teens go for energy drinks and sports drinks in lieu of water. (Simpson, & Mazzeo, 2017) A recent Havard study found out that over half of the… Continue Reading...

Clinical Interviewing Skills and Techniques in Social Work

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 usage: 0 represents not at all worried, and 10 represents extremely concerned and… Continue Reading...

How Modern Medicine Was Developed

The Development of Modern Medicine How did Greek and Galenic notions of health and disease differ from the work of Morgagni and the practitioners of French Clinical medicine? The Greek and Galenic notions of health and disease differed from the Morgagni in that they viewed disease as being caused by an imbalance in the body. Galenic notions were intertwined with philosophy, which was aimed at answering the Socratic question "How should a person live a good life?" Therefore, the Galenic physicians were required to have mastered philosophy and this meant that they employed more of philosophy on their diagnosis, prognosis,… Continue Reading...

Natural Disasters Emergency Management Preparedness

Natural disasters have the potential to dramatically alter life in local communities. The loss of human life reverberates through the generations, as does the loss of local businesses and the generalized economic and psychosocial strain. Yet there are also larger impacts from localized events, such as changes to public policy and political philosophies resulting from major natural disasters. One of the most impactful natural disasters in recent American history is undoubtedly Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina showed Americans the many shortcomings of federal disaster relief response programs like the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which was restructured after the event (Zimmerman,… Continue Reading...

Differences in Two Distinct Product Categories

and distribution methods applied to the two categories. Market Differences Regarding Consumers and Competitors For the soft drink category, a majority of consumers tend to pick a particular soda and will generally ignore the other flavors. This has nothing to do with the taste of the particular drink, but rather due to the subtle marketing that accompanies the soft drink. Competition in the category might be fierce since each brand is fighting to increase its market share. However, the most effective method for reaching out to consumers is by calibrating every aspect of marketing a particular brand in order to create… Continue Reading...

Key Resources Critical Infrastructure

Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources NIPP (National Infrastructure Protection Plan) offers the necessary structure for coordination, synchronization and integration of activities originating from different pertinent statutes, presidential directives and national strategies for the creation of a combined countrywide approach for the implementation of the protection mission of CIKR (Moteff & Parfomak, 2004). The continuity and protection of CIKR is fundamental for national security, safety, vitality, lifestyle and public health. Critical infrastructure can be understood as the systems, networks and assets, virtual or physical (Fisher & Norman 2010). Critical infrastructure is quite fundamental to a nation to the extent that their… Continue Reading...

A Biblical Worldview in Finance

then demonstrate through my actions—my refusal to gamble or drink to drunkenness—that I am committed to being with the Lord. Actions speak louder than words and people know that. That is why I would not start preaching, as people hear preaching all the time and they are not moved by it. But when they see an individual live the words that have been preached, it is a different story. Therefore, my polemic would be a polemic of action—and when the drunken gambler loses all his money because he is drunk, I will take him in and show charity to… Continue Reading...

The physician in charge of her at this extended care facility had indicated that she would not thrive with that condition. The granddaughter to this ailing patient was the power of attorney. To make matters worse, the elderly patient had no advanced directive. The patient’s family had earlier been directed to send her to the emergency… Continue Reading...

Health Care and Obesity

Message for Target Population: Health Education and Diet 1 The message for my target population—adults at a behavioral health clinic—is the following statement: It is important to maintain a healthy diet, low in sugar—especially high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), as the latter has been linked with the onset of heart disease, liver disease, obesity and diabetes (Bocarsely, Powell, Avena & Hoebel, 2010; Malik et al., 2010; Stanhope et al., 2015). This means, primarily, adults should take efforts to eliminate soft drinks and soda pop from their diets—as these are among the primary beverages high in HFCS. The four domains of… Continue Reading...

Education and the Art Of Listening

State to the point where they charged him with corruption of the youth and ordered him to drink the Hemlock juice. He defended himself by saying that he was not teaching but rather trying to learn. He was trying to show the Oracle of Delphi that he was not the wisest man alive (Plato, 2007). He believed himself to be a student and with his students he would strike up conversations that would get everyone in the room thinking. Socrates, if he was anything, was simply a guide—like Virgil is to Dante (n.d.) in the Divine Comedy. God is… Continue Reading...

Media Depictions Of Gender Role Stereotypes

Gender stereotyping is a pernicious and pervasive practice. The media reinforces already existing gender norms, thereby perpetuating structural inequalities and gender inequity. However, the media can also be instrumental in transforming gender norms by combatting stereotypes and depicting gender in unconventional ways. Gender stereotypes can confirm unconscious biases and beliefs about the role and status of men and women. Likewise, the portrayals of gender in the media reinforce behavioral norms. Research shows that “constant exposure to the same dated concepts in the media” can lead to adverse effects that can “last a lifetime,” (Knorr, 2017, p. 1). Therefore, it is… Continue Reading...

Flint Water Crisis

The Flint, Michigan water crisis has become a poster child for environmental injustice, environmental racism, and inequitable resource distribution in the United States. It has also represented a case of bleak mismanagement of precious natural resources and the inability of the United States to adequately respond to the most basic human needs. The water crisis was but a grim manifestation of decades of racist land use policies and political realities, which can be traced back to periods of segregation and the white flight to the suburban sprawl. Moreover, the Flint water crisis showcases the role government plays in colluding with… Continue Reading...

While Socrates was a real person, it is important to realize that much of what is known about Socrates is derived from Plato’s descriptions of Socrates.  Therefore, what people think of as Socratic philosophy might better be described as Plato’s take on Socratic philosophy.… Continue Reading...

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Overview Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) happens to be the most common of all the other kinds of sleep apnea – with the other types of OSA being mixed sleep apnea and central sleep apnea. Garvey, Pengo, Drakatos and Kent (2015) point out that as a matter of fact, there is evidence to suggest that it is the most common respiratory disorder. This, in the words of the authors, is more so the case given “recent data from the United States and Europe suggesting that between 14% and 49% of middle-aged men have clinically significant OSA” (Garvey, Pengo,… Continue Reading...

The 1920s was the decade of the scofflaw, the decade of excess and the decade of the nouveau riche—the ones who, like Jay Gatsby, made their millions from bootlegging or from the stock market or from both. Nothing captured the essence of the post-war 1920s like jazz, which was a new kind of music in America—a music that was fast and loose and flowing: it had no care or concern for the old world culture and was primarily its own thing—good for dancing (ragtime)… Continue Reading...

The analytical methodology that Starbucks used to solve the problem was to obtain “data from several consumer-research firms in shaping its new grocery product line” (Whitten). Data analytics in consumer research are helpful for “categorization, abstraction, comparison, dimensionalization, integration, iteration, and refutation” (Spiggle 491). The… Continue Reading...

How Socrates Argues Against Crito

Crito In this paper, I will show that Socrates’ argument concerning staying to drink the hemlock juice as ordered by the State is a successful argument. First, I will reconstruct the argument, and discuss why it is significant. Then, I will show that the argument is successful, and why. I will then consider possible objections to what I have said, and how I would reply to them. Finally, I will summarize the contents of the paper, showing what has been accomplished by my analysis. Socrates begins his argument from generalized principles that are accepted as true and then moves to… Continue Reading...

The Authoritarian Regime and Animal Farm

Analyzing Animal Farm An authoritarian regime is defined as a form of government controlled by one individual or a small group of people who are able to wield control over the state (Authoritarian Regimes, n.d.)—i.e., over the “bundle of specialized political institutions serving as the primary authority over a particular territory and the people who live there” (Origins and Transformations of the State, n.d.). The authoritarian regime may have present a constitution—a set of rules or laws—to the people, but the regime is not held accountable to the same rules or laws and is not responsible for adhering to the… Continue Reading...

Fracking

Fracking and Ethics Introduction While “fracking”—the term applied to the practice of hydraulic fracturing of rock to gain access to the oil or gas underground—has been hailed as a revolutionary way for the oil industry to draw oil from previously hard to reach places, there are a variety of ethical issues surrounding the practice (Evensen & Stedman, 2018). Stakeholders in the issue of fracking go beyond those in the oil/gas industry, however. They include people in communities, whose water supply has been contaminated as a result of fracking. They include people whose lives have been changed by fracking due to… Continue Reading...
