The Morality Of Punishment for Actions

According to Hoskins (2010), the legal foundation of punishment is morally challenging as it usually involves harsh treatment, sometimes morally unacceptable, to the offender. What makes it acceptable to subject an offender to such kind of punishment is a big moral question. Customarily, the rationale behind punishment is either retributivist or consequentialist. Consquensialists argue that punishment is necessary towards achieving a noteworthy purpose, an example of which is crime reduction. Retributivists, on the other hand, argue that punishment is a basic or natural response for doing something wrong. However, abolitionists argue that punishment is morally unacceptable and thus both defenses… Continue Reading...

Discrimination and Harassment at the Workplace

discriminations and others never tell about it just because they might be isolated from their colleagues or lose their employment altogether. Another reason is that even when they disclose it, no measures would be taken even though laws against it do exist. To make the situation worse, the employers prefer people who never disclose such harassments just because in such a case they need to deal with the issue first hand. The Impact of Discrimination on Individual Workers and Society Workplace discrimination is a violation of federal and state laws and Title VII of The Civil Rights Act, 1964,… Continue Reading...

Muslim Americans and the Impact Of September 11th

that America was thriving as a culture and a place where immigrants could find employment. The notion of immigration was not tied to security or to threats against American safety. It was united to the notion that immigrants helped make America a better place. [15: Mary Williams, Immigration (CT: Greenhaven, 2004), 69.] [16: Plummer Alston Jones, Still Struggling for Equality (CT: Libraries Unlimited, 2004), 153.] In 2001, that notion underwent a major and sweeping change as immigration was suddenly tied to ideas of terrorism. No new immigration policies have been created separate from terrorism policies since 9/11. This is… Continue Reading...

Historical, food shortage has been one of the major factors causing the political riots, which subsequently affects the political institution. Brinkman and Hendrix, (2011) establish a direct relationship between a rise in food prices and violent riots and social unrest.

Macroeconomics and Gas Stations

buy a gas station. First, higher rates are likely because the economy is nearing full employment and thus inflation is going to be more of a concern going forward (Matthews, 2016). Second, high rates affect the cost of debt. If inflation is a risk, higher rates will arrive, and they will serve to put a cooling on the U.S. economy. Yet, growth is not that high, so this cooling effect could be quite negative, especially in regions that are not yet growing strongly. It matters where these gas stations are. Furthermore, if Edgar is thinking about borrowing to finance… 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...

How to Grow the Economy

on what happens with things like aggregate demand, gross domestic product and employment. While predicting the outcome of economic efforts and policy can sometimes be hard to pin down, there are best practices that are generally held to be better than others when economic expansion is the desired outcome. Analysis The typical reason for economic expansionary policies is when an economy is emerging out of a recession. A good and recent example of this was the years during and after the Great Recession. Indeed, that massive financial valley started in roughly 2007 and the recession did not "end" until… Continue Reading...

Boko Haram and Diffusion Of Innovation

regards to economic diversification, infrastructure improvements, and expansion of employment and other opportunities. We have already questioned whether Nigeria can better diversify its economy to render Boko Haram irrelevant, and encourage the evolution of economic sectors other than oil. Second, we can apply diffusion of innovation theory to the second research question related to deprivation theory. Diffusion of innovation theory can be used to highlight patterns of acceptance of radicalism in specific communities to answer the question of whether there is a threshold of unemployment rates, income rates, or GINI index points that accurately predicts the entrenchment of Boko… Continue Reading...

The Distribution of Power Power and authority are distributed through the medical center in a hierarchical fashion, yet there is a sense both of a centralized authority that oversees various departments and independent authority within various operations and units, where smaller teams and workgroups focus on specific activities. I observed that these teams and workgroups were highly motivated and accountable to a team leader, who was mostly… Continue Reading...

Global Comparisons in Workplace Discrimination

According to the Institute for Women's Policy Research (2015), full-time working female employees 80 cents on every dollar earned by male employees. In most nations across the globe, there continues to be a glass ceiling and wage differences. Another form of discrimination is based on age. In the present day workforce, there is a wrong perspective that older employees have enjoyed their time and therefore should leave and make room for young employees. It is imperative… Continue Reading...

Solow Growth Model and Unemployment

So technological advancements that affect productivity will influence wages, but conversely so will trade unions and employment protections. Those affect worker markups and the reservation wage differential. When examining Europe's higher unemployment, there are a number of institutional factors that have had an influence. European workers -- especially in relation to workers in the US -- have stronger worker protections. These include unemployment insurance, legal protections and other elements that drive up the price of wages in Europe. These labour market institutions have been proposed as contributing to higher unemployment. Essentially, the costs that such protections place on business… Continue Reading...

Incompatibility Between Islam and Human Rights

emphasize on the right to work. Men and women have the right to work and seek for a gainful employment. However, percentages of women who are gainfully employed in the Muslim countries are very low since women are at a disadvantage in education. Moreover, man and woman are created by God, and the Quranic description of marriage shows women "are your garments/ And you are their garments" (Surah 2: Al-Baqarah: 187) implying mutuality, closeness, and equality. However, Muslim cultures have relegated women to a position of slave-like creatures and puppets. Assadollahi, (2016) argue women have no rights under the… Continue Reading...

Why 2017 May Be a Good Time to Buy Gold

this traces back to Trump's incentives for voters -- i.e., to bring back jobs and restore employment. With middle class wealth dropping 30% over the past 16 years, as Collum (2016) points out, Trump's appeal to voters is directly related to the dour economic feeling that many have and the real unemployment rate that Collum identifies. With the economic principles identified above and these macroeconomic indices used to assess the state of the economy in the U.S. -- as well as the global economy (Collum discusses China's Yuan devaluation and credit problem, Japan's Central Bank asset-purchasing program, and the… Continue Reading...

Using Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace

Boomers have significantly different outlooks on a variety of issues -- such as employment, debt, finances, education, social justice, and more (Cutler, 2015). Bringing these groups together in projects can be difficult, especially if the project portfolio manager fails to recognize the power that EI can have in building relationships (Cacamis & Asmar, 2014). A study on nursing turnover serves as a sufficient example of the generational problem at root in organizations where disconnect between managers and employees results in frustrated ranks and low retention rates. Meretoja, Numminen, Isoaho & Leino-Kilpi (2015) conducted a cross-sectional survey of interventions in… Continue Reading...

Key Concepts in Economics

(2016), the United States unemployment rate crossed the 5% mark. In particular, owing to a steady decrease in employment and having healthy employment, the rate of wages substantially increase, which is an indication that the job market might be tightening substantially to compensate more to attract and retain workers. Secondly, the unemployment rate declined to its lowest of 4.9% in the past eight years (Schwartz, 2016). The past half-year have been the paramount protracted period for employee remunerations from the time when the recovery started six-and-a-half years ago.

Kuwaiti Public and Private Sector Job Market

the financial burden brought by government and public sector employment of Kuwaiti nationals. Third, this labor market is characterized by incompatibility between employment requirements and the professional capabilities of locals. This incompatibility is evident in the significantly low contribution of local workforce to the private sector and Kuwaitis' reluctance to hold private sector jobs. Kuwaiti nationals are increasingly employed by the government without consideration of their professional capabilities and economic implications. This trend increases the incompatibility between job-related requirements and professional abilities of Kuwaiti nationals.

industries would be better placed to expand their operations locally, regionally, and internationally. However, this may increase competition for employment between natives and refugees, ultimately causing antagonism between the two groups. This has the potential to fuel social unrest, which may be bad for business. Businesses can also benefit from a larger market for their products. When making marketing decisions, businesses must consider the size of the target market and other demographic aspects (Mullins & Walker, 2013).

Non Credit Programs on Workforce Education

patterns, institutional demands, and requirements of businesses and industry. Future employment and workforce training are significantly impacted by these programs. The overall college planning system or a funding structure involving an admission strategy for credit are also factors that can affect some of these outcomes. The development of a viable funding mechanism providing support for non-credit education is highly crucial and essential. The documented learning outcomes from enrolling in non-credit programs differ and achieve various needs since non-credit workforce education is not subject to the same academic guidelines that direct credit education.

Emotional Labour and Gendered Occupational Segregation

has affected the workplace by influencing how organisations make employment decisions. In the service sector, it is not difficult to see how one gender dominates certain jobs (Huppatz, 2012). From hospitality firms and airlines to schools, women and men tend to perform different roles, with most frontline and interactive jobs such as cashiering, reception, checking-in, cleaning, and teaching being undertaken by women. According to Pilcher (2007), interactive service work tends to be significantly gendered-segregated in the sense that most service organisations disproportionately select women for roles that require emotional labour. This segregation is basically denoted as gendered occupational segregation.… Continue Reading...

The fundamental logic of these pillars is that the VA essentially serves as a coordinating body. Its strengths lie in a) its ability to identify at-risk and homeless veterans, through its various programs that serve them and b) its extensive reach and connections with other bodies. Some other basic facts that contribute to the types of strategies used are that homeless veterans are disproportionately African-American or Hispanic, that younger veterans are… Continue Reading...

Juvenile Justice

The historic year of 1910, which was marked by South Africa's unification, saw an attempt to develop a national prison and punitive policy. This goal was encapsulated within the 13th Act of 1911 (Prisons and Reformatories Act) as well as within the establishment of a Prisons Department. The Act served to revoke, partially or completely, every penal system-related law in place within the country's four colonies prior to its unification (i.e., laws implemented between 1902 and 1910) (Singh, 2005).

sours when corporate interests undermine the ethos and aesthetics of original art-driven community-oriented progress. Because artists have higher rates of self- employment versus other urban denizens, they can potentially boost community empowerment and self-reliance overall. With spillover effects to the non-artist residents of the same community, artists generate their own products and services to prosper not corporate entities but local ones. From a Marxist perspective, artists own their own means of production, are not alienated from their labor, and subvert the capitalist labor system. Artists work in ways that deliberately, overtly, and consciously breaks down social, economic, and political barriers of… Continue Reading...

Labor Laws and Employment Contracts

employment-at-will doctrine is a law that requires both the employer and the employee to either enter into a contract of employment willfully or terminate such a contract willfully. Under this law, an employer may employ an employee if the employer is willing to employ specific employees willing to accept the job under the given terms and conditions.

The goal of the latter networking and collaboration is to provide and administer affordable housing solutions as well as expand employment opportunities for veterans that need and want the assistance.

Nursing Problems

facility. How Will Limited Nurse Staff Change My Practice? Every employee has a job expectation. Often, during the employment procedures, the employers indicate the job descriptions for every employee. As a result, the employee has specific expectation from the job. The limited number of staff means the days are busy because the numbers of clients admitted in the healthcare are more than the number of nurses expected to provide the service. The limited number of staff will influence my personal life schedule. For example, in some days when the amount of work to perform overpowers my capacity, there will be a… Continue Reading...

Change Management Done Wrong

given the changes involved. However, merit or something other than age must be the basis for employment decisions. If tenure is used, it will not favor the young. The other alternatives are to leave things as is (which is not workable) and to only avoid the age discrimination implications. On the whole, taking a gradual but business-wise approach is best. Taking a jarring and immediate approach will be disruptive and the productivity lost from that will sap (if not wipe out) any gains made, at least in the short-term (EEOC, 2017). When it comes to implementation, the reviews of… Continue Reading...

Performance Management Review

that may be going along. In addition, if at any given point the new firm plans to terminate the employment of some of the personnel, it is imperative for them to be given notice. This is largely because it hands the personnel an opportunity to provide significant feedback before a decision is made (Grimshaw & Co., 2016). Another way of mitigating risks is through undertaking early integration planning processes, which lead to better chances of succeeding. The pre-planning process is purposed to making certain that an examination of the compatibility of performance management systems of the companies take place.… Continue Reading...

Social Discrimination in the 21st Century

about the new person is primarily a background check on their level of education, their employment status, place, and role, their marriage status, and the neighbourhood they live in. It is no wonder the typical social media requires such attributes for display on an individual's profile. Such social attributes will therefore determine the language to use, the choice of language, and conversation topic and direction, among others. However, this image is temporary and open to challenged or be fully anchored, a process that happens in the first few minutes when you meet the new person. In cases where these… Continue Reading...

Criminology in America

societal development is very crucial and it is measured via the condition of education, social wealth and employment among others. With a basis in simple human thinking and general opinion, a connection can be proved to exist between crime and per capita income in a city. As the per capita income rises, normally, there should be an increase in the financial stability of the city's people and thus the reasons for criminal acts are highly lessened. Analysis of data has showed that robberies have been mostly instigated by poverty. The biggest data backing of this trend, derived from the… Continue Reading...

Three different ancient epochs describing the Victims' position inside methods of justice were reviewed by some foremost Researchers including Moriarty and Jerin. The Epochs are the Golden Age, the Reemergence of the Victim and the Dark Age. There is a proposition that the Golden Age has been before the time when laws were documented and governments founded and when ethnic law was in power. In most of the ethnic law, victims' position in defining the penalty for the criminal dealings that another person… Continue Reading...

Women-centric sponsorship initiatives facilitate their promotions on the basis of performance and ability, especially in mid-career where competition for promotions intensifies. But not all sponsorship programs can increase efficiency and promote fairness in the company and top management needs to be careful about their sponsorship program strategy.

American Corrections and Sentencing Trends

problems broached by Blumstein's line of attack is: the employment of apprehension records to reflect criminal participation is perhaps more precise in case of serious crimes as compared to less serious ones. In case of the latter, authorities can exert more discretion during apprehension. Studies into causes for sentencing demonstrate that in case of relatively minor offences, judges may deviate from legal constraints, enabling the entry of other factors into their decisions[footnoteRef:8]. Such factors may include types of racial prejudice associated with sensed racial threat. In spite of the potential of not accounting for all variations, researches which depend… Continue Reading...

Likewise, by 1950, the psychological community remained actively involved in identifying individuals differences between people for norming purposes in an effort to improve humanity Nyborg, 2011). With the Nazi’s final solution still fresh in the minds of the world’s population, though, eugenics-minded psychologists and their body of science became the target of increasing criticism.

In sum, even though Snowden may have been trying to actually make the world a better place, his approach was inappropriate and the government’s response did not violate this contractor’s constitutional rights.

who argue that sex work is a socially acceptable practice that satisfies a need while providing gainful employment to millions of women worldwide. For instance, Brock advises that, “Sex work is a malleable and fluid, yet constituent, element of the material reality of people's lives, rather than an aberrant feature of social order.” From this perspective, in those cases where the sex worker is an adult and is exercising free will, prostitution is a free market exchange that takes place between consenting adults who are aware of the implications and risks. This view treats prostitution within a country as… Continue Reading...

Another advantage is that unions are able to attain increased employment steadiness and constancy for the membership, skills advancement, a superior say in making decisions, and augmented employability of union members (Kennedy, 1999). There is also the advantage of easing of tensions. In particular, the interest based bargaining model is one that is responsive.

the last two years have seen household incomes grow, with the number of Americans in gainful employment having increased in 2016. Despite this, many Americans, as the author observes, still feel left behind; with one of the underlying reasons being sustained decline in lifetime earnings from the late 1960s – with young men ending up with less than their older counterparts “because they started earning less than their counterparts in previous years, and saw little growth in their early years” (Cohen, 2017).

Greece Economic Problems Analysis

Economic Environment The economic environment of Greece is that of a capitalist economy, but with significant public sector contribution – about 40% of total GDP is from government activity. This speaks more to the relatively small size of the Greek private sector than to excessive government ownership of industry. Tourism is one of the major drivers of the Greek economy, accounting for 18% of GDP (CIA World Factbook, 2017). Thus Greece would be characterized as a mixed economy with some government-owned entities. Greece is a member of the EU, but has also received several bailouts in recent years, and struggles… Continue Reading...

Companies should perform rigorous background checks including the history of past employment, verification of education, driver license violation, civil history, and criminal history (Smith, 2016). A credit check of potential workers is also important to determine whether they have had any financial difficulties that may increase their vulnerability to performing fraud. The corporation should also clearly state to its employs that it does not tolerate theft and also put stringent measures in place and ensure that they follow them to the latter (Young, 2013). The company may outline all actions considered as theft… Continue Reading...

Likewise, the initiatives that have been implemented by the Department of Homeland Security to identify potential terrorist threats is an important addition to… Continue Reading...

Probability Of Inflation or Deflation

the US economy is on the verge of full employment, which contributed to the Fed’s decision to increased rates in December 2016 and March 2017 and two other hikes before the end of the year (BISC, 2017). However, US inflation faced upward pressure in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election as president and his plan for loose fiscal policy.

No federal requisites are in place to mandate disclosure of fracking fluid contents, but the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) has put forward a regulation which necessitates disclosing these fluids’ contents if they are to be utilized on lands that its manages. Further, no less than two congressional bills have been put forward, delegating authority to state governments… Continue Reading...

Meanwhile, other pupils have no option but to seek full-time employment, besides attending college full-time. Hardly any student graduates without being burdened by debt. In this paper, the issue of college campus debt, its prevention, and potential solutions if one cannot escape it, will be addressed. Normally, the highest-risk group isn’t that of pupils having the biggest debt; rather, it is non-Whites, first-generation pupils, and those from low-income backgrounds, particularly if they are enrolled in not-so-prestigious colleges as this decreases their likelihood of landing a job immediately after graduation and effectively repaying their debt. Certain students apply for college… Continue Reading...

compared to other services. According to some economists, swiftly increasing healthcare expenditure increases inflation but decreases overall employment and gross domestic product (GDP). Healthcare expenditure impacts on rate of interest and the comparative effect on industry-wide economic performance is reliant on funding source for federal healthcare expenditure. The findings of a research that relied on econometric models suggested that deficit funding had a disproportionate adverse impact on the capital goods and export sector; further, payroll tax funding had a disproportionate negative impact on the consumer service sector (Folland et al., 2016). But one must bear in mind the fact that… Continue Reading...

General Mills Business Strategy

The Five Forces model provides a means of assessing the overall profitability of an industry. General Mills operates in the processed food industry, focusing on sales to grocery outlets. The bargaining power of buyers is often quite strong, because there are only a handful of major players in any one area. The industry is becoming increasingly concentrated. In fact, Wal-Mart now controls 21.5% of the US grocery market, giving it tremendous bargaining power over a supplier like General Mills (Daniels, 2017). Balancing this is the fact that as a major buyer of agricultural products, General Mills can exert pressure down… Continue Reading...

Each employment position should be linked to specific organizational needs. This is followed up by training and monitoring that evaluates the candidate’s performance over time based on those needs. Presumably the performance markers are also linked to financial solvency (for example, in the case of a nonprofit, soliciting a certain amount of donations from givers through effective marketing campaigns with strong ROI) but again solvency is not the sole objective. Financial soundness of a nonprofit is assessed slightly differently than… Continue Reading...

Of course, the ownership, executives and managers of the firm will have ultimate command and control of the business.

employees have rich social and family lives outside of their place of employment, they also observe religious practices that coincide with their personal beliefs or their cultural background. While religiosity and spirituality usually do not conflict with the workplace environment, holidays are a potential source of conflict. A hegemonic Christian culture has enabled the celebration of some holidays as if they were universal. Failure to formally acknowledge non-Christian holidays sends “a subtle yet powerful ethnocentric message concerning which holidays are worth knowing about, and which ones are not,” (Schlosser & Sedlacek, 2003, p. 31).

Furthermore, it also meant they could increase their skillset, making them a more competitive worker when and if they returned to their native countries.

maternity leave is that “paid leave raises the probability that mothers return to employment later, and then work more hours and earn higher wages”—a point which is actually beneficial for the whole economy (Miller, 2015).

Immigration in America: The Benefits and Costs of a Polarizing Problem Introduction As Suarez-Orozco, Rhodes and Milburn (2009) point out, immigrants need “supportive relationships” in order to succeed in the foreign country that they move to (p. 151). However, when that foreign country is determined to address immigration issues—not only illegal immigration but also legal immigration—it can become a difficult problem for both sides of the political aisle. For a nation like the United States, that is especially true. After all, America was founded by immigrants. The early Spanish and French missionaries came in the 16th century seeking converts to… Continue Reading...

Strategic ambiguity can have some ironic benefits, such as promoting greater flexibility in leadership decisions, and even… Continue Reading...

In such an instance, an organization could lose some of its most gifted and talented employees, a move that could negatively affect performance. Employee stress could also increase absenteeism rates.

Money Economics and the Banking System

major cost input for businesses producing things. The Fed notes that there is a trade-off between inflation and employment because an economy in full employment will naturally see higher inflation, due to higher demand. An economy with higher unemployment, which results in lower buying power for its citizens, will have lower inflation rates ("Central Banking", 2018). This trade-off is known as the Phillips Curve, and argues that there is a trade-off in the short run (Pettinger, 2017). Inflation has a number of different impacts. The biggest is that buying power declines, because wages are stickier than prices. As buying… Continue Reading...

Background During the colonial era, vast regions of Africa and Asia were taken over and subsequently dominated by the more powerful western nations. In essence, the main agenda of colonialism was exploitative – with economically stronger nations seeking to exert control over weaker and less developed countries so as to exploit both their human and natural resources. Also, colonial powers deemed their colonies as viable markets for their products. The cultural and social aspects of the subjugated countries were affected and adapted in significant ways, with the said countries being… Continue Reading...

of this can be seen in one of my former places of employment, where there were strict controls in regards to employees coming in on time, meeting specific productivity goals, and not wasting time at work (for example, it was prohibited to use company Internet and phones for any personal purposes). These controls were put into place based upon the assumption that employees should be following the rules very strictly. On the other hand, it was not researched adequately why these specific productivity goals were needed; they were rather arbitrarily determined, based upon the assumption that increasing productivity would… Continue Reading...

Social Problem and Human Services

Social Problem Related to Human Services Social justice implies citizens’ equal entitlement to the self-same services and rights. In this paper, the inequalities in providing various human services to different societal groups in the nation will be addressed.

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… Continue Reading...

Just as a prison and schoolyard code exists that discourages anyone from reporting instances of bullying (“snitches get stitches”), however, so too is the workplace characterized by such a code of silence. This means that workplace bullying can be insidious and persistent, creating a toxic work environment for victims whose performance is invariably adversely affected (Weidmer, 2010). Although relatively minor in impact compared to some other forms of workplace bullying, one personal incident that is relevant to… Continue Reading...

Like all institutions, they must make do with scarce resources and budget them accordingly. In fact, given that nonprofits often are short of funds if donations and other sources of funds are… Continue Reading...

Differences in Competencies Between the Adn Versus the Bsn Nurse

Students will likely exit no more adept at wielding needles and tubes, but be better prepared for hospital employment nonetheless” (Nursinglicensure.org).

Thus, the real-life learning curve will be smaller. This is a competency that so many people overlook when making the distinction between ADN and BSN. The reason that it is… Continue Reading...

How Immigrants Deal with Discrimination

the rights of new migrants as well as their social service and employment access and increasing surveillance on them. Undocumented or irregular immigrants form the main target populations of such efforts. Still, an emphasis on the legal difficulties of migrants might cause one to underestimate the contribution of aspects like ethnic/racial background in shaping their experiences in the US. Therefore, researches conducted in the U.S have noted that racialization projects as well as immigration policies usually frame groups that share a similar background into one single “other,” overlooking key within-group disparities (e.g., Latinos within the US). Further, studies reveal… Continue Reading...

Discrimination could also potentially impact perceptions of the candidate’s competency, impacting salary negotiations. Therefore, social media… Continue Reading...

Government Intervention Essay

exact opposite of Henry Ford’s argument:  “independence means self-dependence.  Dependence on some one else for employment in busy times may too easily become dependence on some one else for support in slack times.”6  Ford’s argument was based on experience and the philosophy of American Transcendentalism:  self-reliance.  Ford stated he had always had to work, whether anyone would hire him or not.  When no one else would employ him, he would employ himself.  He did not like the idea of government handing out jobs to others just for the sake of them having jobs.  If there were no jobs to… Continue Reading...

Introduction to Economics and Global Capitalism

My impressions of the debate Listening the debate one cannot fail to see that there are major differences in perception of how socialism should work and if, addressing the primary question of the debate, socialism has failed. In general, my impressions on the debate is that, while socialism has proven to be a failure, we cannot in the modern day society, avoid the incorporation of some aspects of socialism. For example, the tax scheme all over the globe is oriented to a socialism idea of wealth distribution, and with particular reference to the United States, the welfare scheme is oriented… Continue Reading...

Capitalism and Economic Surplus

be fair, there are some people that certainly do need help. For example, “full employment” is considered to be 4-5 percent because there are always people that are between jobs for one reason or another. However, the workforce participation rate in this country is rather low as compared to the past and it is hard to discern why. This leads to the question as to whether there is some truth to the idea that at least some people are gaming the system as a means to not work and support themselves even when they have the ability to do… Continue Reading...

Increased diversity in the areas of recruitment, employment and development has challenged conventional armed forces organizational principles, standards, outlooks, and beliefs. It has led to the modification and revision of HR models, practices, policies, and initiatives (Pinch, 2006). Pinch (2006) states that several entities consider diversity a key value of multicultural, egalitarian societies; corporations ought to, therefore, seek diversity irrespective of its link to performance measures. From the standpoint of HR management, diversity has largely been examined in terms of how it affects factors such as group dynamics which influence corporate performance.

In the final analysis, the decision demonstrates that at the turn of the 20th century, gender as well as physical differenced had greater sway in the determination and enforcement of labor contracts.

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.

Minimum Wage and Aggregate Demand

Introduction to Economics and Global Capitalism The idea that minimum wage, even though it has risen, has not kept pace with real wages, according to the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (2013). The issue of course is one of inflation. So if Sen. Harkin wants to grow the middle class, which he calls the backbone of the economy, he should simply get on the Fed to stop printing trillions and increasing the money supply so that everyone’s dollars are devalued. No one’s wages are keeping track with the rate of inflation, and while raising minimum wage… Continue Reading...

in the song, he encounter’s some kind of buyer’s remorse. By his own narration, freedom, travel and employment just happen to him without much volition on his part. He, however, deliberately decided to exchange his freedom for the paternalism he alleges to have suffered in slavery. As anywhere in the narrative, Mitchell ventriloquizes her support of slavery via ex-slaves that act as the tale’s strongest advocates of human slavery (Adkins 49).  Pseudo-histories that recycled principles of pro-slavery and novels such as Gone with the Wind romanticized a mutual, nearly familial fondness between the slave and master. Related from the… Continue Reading...

America's Failed Economy Analysis

unemployment is nine years old, unemployment is still a major issue in the United States, especially regarding obtaining full-time employment. Now that the undiagnosed bubble has burst, the true riskiness of supposedly safe assets has been revealed and the financial system has demonstrated its fragility. U.S. households have seen $13 trillion in wealth evaporate. More than six million jobs have been lost, and the unemployment rate appears headed for its highest level since 1940 (Krugman, 2009). Such efforts to inject money into the economy through ‘regulation’ and so forth have only resulted in companies making huge profits and not… Continue Reading...

Public Health Models and Sdoh in Childhood Obesity

Aiken, Cheung & Olds (2009) state that employment opportunities in the health sector are expected to grow for registered nurses in comparison to other occupations.

Therefore, nurses are the at-risk population in relation to health education since the health education complexities affect their academic preparation. Objectives This paper seeks to examine how the Health Belief Model can be used to address the issue of health education at a time when nursing… Continue Reading...

Illegal Immigration Essay

of the world, leaving American workers stranded without work, employment, or consistent income.  With so few jobs available today, more immigration can seem like a problem—after all, where are all the immigrants going to work if the people who are already here cannot find employment? Another con is that of education.  Education in America is already suffering considerably.  As Despress (2018) points out, many immigrants from Latin America fall into the achievement gap in the U.S. because they simply cannot keep up with what their English-speaking classmates are doing.  To give support to the immigrant students, schools attempt to… Continue Reading...

Most remarkably, Alexander claims in The New Jim Crow that the creation of a racial caste system is deliberate, part of a grand scheme machinated by the same demographic that would have supported Jim Crow several generations earlier.

Proper PEEP (positive end-expiratory pressure) employment proves very useful in supporting oxygenation; furthermore, even elevated levels prove safe following CABG surgery. In fact, some information indicates that elevated PEEP levels immediately after surgery (10 cm H2O versus 8 or 5 cm H2O) enhances pulmonary compliance; but whether or not regular employment of elevated PEEP levels has any significant clinical advantages is still not clear. In case of hypoxemia and persistent atelectasis, RMs (recruitment maneuvers) can offer some advantages. However, adverse effects like hypotension, barotrauma, desaturation, and arrhythmias also commonly occur. RMs carried… Continue Reading...

Positive Contributions by Veterans in the Construction Sector Essay

In the construction sector, different institutions such as Veterans Build America and Hire Our Heroes have made significant strides towards this endeavor. Nonetheless, regardless of the presence of such institutions and assimilation programs for coupling veterans with jobs in the construction sector, measuring their effectiveness continues to be a significant challenge, largely owing to the lack of extensive research in the area.

In addition, the act specified that employees would get only half of their normal normal salary increase. The other half would be shared among the top performers. Thus some employees benefited with this new system whereas others were disadvantaged by receiving less pay.

In other words, learners have to do more than demonstrate knowledge which is comparable to mere memorization; they must be able to demonstrate understanding. Measuring understanding requires evaluating “performance over time” (Carling, Reilly & Williams, 2009, p. 25). It is expected, however, that with time performance should improve—therefore where a student ends at the end of an agreed upon time will likely be different from where the student began. This is why… Continue Reading...

Fitness and Health Insurance Reform

Medicare for all, or health insurance that an individual could access, regardless of income or employment status, would ensure more comprehensive coverage, versus forcing people to purchase insurance from state-based exchanges that often have widely disparate rates, based upon location. Evidence-based results suggest that offering subsidies did increase the number of Americans with health insurance coverage after the passage of the ACA (Obama, 2016). But not all national reform initiatives have shown equal promise. For example, the lack of electronic health records (EHR) is often cited as a reason for poorer quality health outcomes. But while hospital with completely… Continue Reading...

African American producers, through the employment of noir conventions, have been able to sensitize the viewers on the social injustices deeply rooted in the American Society, and also give them insight into how such ills can be fought (Flory, 2000, p. 28). Film noir can be criticized in two major perspectives, either formalist or content-based. Formalist criticism normally dwells on the formal bits of film noir, the sexualization of brutality, the non-realistic lighting, the characterization of intelligence agents, the crooked elements and femmes fatales, so as to portray stabilization of… Continue Reading...

This happens because private enterprises are really and have always been intertwined with government.
