Self Incrimination and Right to Counsel Approach

The idea of remaining silent when faced with accusation has historical religious and legal roots. Moses teachings', transformed to written form by the ancient Talmudic law had a complete ban on self-incrimination.

Modern and Contemporary Literature and Culture

Culture English writing has taken a new evolutionary path in its development since Independence. India was observed post-colonially by English writers of Indian origin. While new ideas were being developed, emphasis was placed on religious, socio-economic, filial, and political problems as talking points; these issues captured the national movement sensation and attracted the attention of creative writers. Events like the partition and the resulting communal riots following it, coupled with the problems of caste discrimination, misogyny and the squalor in which the proletariat lived, were the major issues of the time. The clamour raised over these issues is massive, with… Continue Reading...

Legalizing Sale Of Organs

the attention of even some scholars in the West is that of iran. A study was done about the subject in a 2008 academic journal article. It is openly suggested in the headline of the journal that iran's pattern of paying kidney donors should perhaps become the norm in other parts of the world. As noted before, donors are commonly not compensated. However, this leads to people only giving organs upon their death or in the case that they can do so for a person they are aware of and that does not kill themselves in the process, such… Continue Reading...

The Trump Travel Ban and Why It Is Bad

stopped accepting refugees from Syria. The affected countries included iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya. Several months after the original executive order, the Trump administration removed Iraq from the list of banned countries. The executive order created a legal fiasco, a social miasma, and certain economic downturn not just for the affected nations but for the United States, too. On its legal merits alone, the executive order has been challenged several times. Initial confusion was related to whether or not existing Green Card holders and tourist visa holders from the Muslim nations would still be permitted entry… Continue Reading...

Caliban and Prospero in the Tempest

Caliban One of the most striking characters in The Tempest is that of Caliban, the other mythical being in the play who plays a dominant role in its narrative. Unlike Prospero's servant Ariel, Caliban is portrayed as a savage and adversarial figure. On the other hand, he is capable of speaking some of the most beautiful and stirring poetry of the entire play. Caliban thus illustrates many of the ambiguities of colonization. On one hand, the island is more rightfully his than Prospero's, yet the play conspires to suggest that because of Prospero's more civilized, European behavior, Prospero somehow has… Continue Reading...

Creative Expressions in Films

total control on his spouse and kids. Furthermore, family takes precedence over any other institution in iran and children are often well taken care of. They are nurtured and loved to the fullest. The Iranians see the relationship between a parent and their offspring as more deserving of attention that that between a husband and his wife (Sreekumar & Balasubramanian, 2007). Traditions, family and culture are the major themes you would expect to find in Iranian films. Severally in "Children of Heaven" by Majid Majidi, the story and actors showcase these common elements of Iranian culture (Sreekumar & Balasubramanian,… Continue Reading...

Kant’s Notion Of ‘perpetual Peace’ in Managing Peace

Advanced Nursing Practice and Treatment Of Vein Artery Disorders

Comparison of pathophysiology of CVI and DVT The pathogenesis of CVI is not completely understood; however, it's based on both venous reflux and obstruction; or an amalgamation of the two. Though venous reflux is actually based on a number of mechanisms, the key elements are venous valve ineffectiveness, vessel wall swelling, hemodynamic elements and additionally venous hypertension. These systems could be further exasperated by dysfunctional pumping devices (vascular and/or muscle pump), for example, in inert patients or even individuals with stiff joints (Goerge and Santler, 2017). Similarly, Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) is actually blood clotting in a deep vein of… Continue Reading...

Israeli-palestinian Conflict

and the US has clearly staked itself against the main Shiite country, iran, which is labeled a member of the Axis of Evil. Some, but not all Sunni, would consider that a reason to target the US. The US also props up the corrupt Gulf Arab regimes, and is engaged in extended conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The US backs other conflicts in which Muslims suffer. In the end, it is that Muslim suffering that drives the desire to do harm to US citizens and interests. The Israel-Palestine conflict makes for great messaging in recruiting videos, and it definitely… Continue Reading...

Proper Supply Chain Management

Resource Allocation & Expenses Maintaining proper expense and inventory levels in a business is not terribly complex. However, it is not the easiest thing to do either. Simply having enough of a resource in stock is not enough. It should get there soon enough to be useful. However, it should not arrive too soon and there should not be too much of it. Further, managing the supply and structure of the relevant supply chain is also important. Depending on the size and scope of an operation or department, this can be quite complex. It can literally come down to the… Continue Reading...

The Fund for Peace tracks its Fragile States Index, and on that measure Myanmar scores 95.7 out of 120, ranking it 25th in the world. It is the most fragile state in East Asia, other than North Korea. This measure implies a high degree of internal conflict, relatively low degree… Continue Reading...

The Yemen Conflict Between Saudi and the Houthis

Saudi border, drawing Saudi Arabia into the conflict. This became a front in the Saudi- iran proxy war, as the Houthi rebels are predominantly Shia. Western powers have traditionally backed Saudi Arabia in this conflict (BBC, 2018). In recent months, the conflict appears to have spiralled out of control, and may be contributing to a rift between Saudi Arabia and the UAE. While they have been allies for much of this conflict, each is using the conflict as a means of extending influence and power in the region, but there are longstanding tensions at play in this conflict that have… Continue Reading...

Turkey, Russia, Kurds, iran, Saudi Arabia, ISIS, Israel, the U.S.—all have been on the scene for a number of years, and the stories told about what is happening there are as wide ranging and conflicting as the players and parties involved themselves. For many, understanding what is going on on the ground depends on seeing images of attacks, atrocities, war torn regions, and heroics, captured on camera by photojournalists. President Trump, for instance, is on record saying that he was moved to strike a… Continue Reading...

to and from six predominantly Muslim countries (Newton, 2017). The targeted countries were iran, Yemen, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, and iran (Newton, 2017). Critics of the ban believed the move was unconstitutional and the courts eventually removed the ban. This was regarded by many in the government and media as the most extreme act of anti-immigration in American history. Although the Chinese Exclusion Act was roughly the same in limiting certain people from entering the country, Trump’s executive order demonstrated the kind of fear and anger the American public feels because of immigration in a society that has supposedly freed itself… Continue Reading...

By the 1980s, the price of gold had risen some 300% from its 1970s high of $200 per ounce. Throughout the 80s and 90s, gold would ride a channel around $400 before dipping prior to a stratospheric launch in the 200s to more than $1800. All of this was courtesy of the inflationary practices of the Fed’s interest rate manipulation practices, bond bubble, its money printing (devaluation of the dollar),… Continue Reading...

Death Penalty Essay

According to a 2011 study published in The Guardian: “China, together with iran, North Korea, Yemen and the US (the only G7 country to still execute people) carried out the most executions last year” (“Death penalty statistics by country,” 2017). The US is in a poor position to criticize other nations when it carries out similar policies in regards to its prisoners. The United States should stand as a beacon of moral light to other nations in regards to its policies versus engage in troubling practices in terms of the ways in which it treats its own prisoners. Conclusion… Continue Reading...

Islamic Terrorism Essay

implications of a Sunni group controlling parts of Syria and Iraq, while an equally militant Shia group largely controls iran are alarming and fighting between radicalized Muslims and non-radicalized citizens could have very alarming consequences and has made much of the Western world very aware of concerns about nuclear weapons in Muslim-controlled countries like Pakistan and iran.  It has also helped drive xenophobia in many nations, because they fear that Muslim immigrants will bring radical Islam to their countries.  This fear is reasonable, but greatly overstated; the refugees are fleeing the radical Islamists, but it is still possible for… Continue Reading...

The Federal Reserve and the Gold Standard

countries who make other arrangements for oil in order to bypass the USD—nations like Russia, China, iran and so on. Plus, it does not place a limit on the money supply. The Fed, for instance, has been acting like a printing machine—and since 2008 with QE 1, 2 and 3, the money supply has increased dramatically, which has led to inflation (i.e., the devaluation of the dollar and the rising cost of just about everything). Ending the Fed, as Ron Paul puts it, would be one step in addressing the issue of inflation and the erosion of the value… Continue Reading...

Negotiating Peace in the Middle East

However, now that Russia and iran have emerged as defenders of Assad and have helped to drive back ISIS and the U.S.-supported rebels, the game has changed substantially and regime change no longer seems possible save for an all-out war between world powers U.S. and Russia. In order to get these various countries to the table, hammering out what each side wants and how likely that is to be possible has been the subject of numerous talks. Currently, the 8th round of negotiations has taken… Continue Reading...

Literacy Rates Among Females in Developing Countries

allowed female literacy to be a focus within its developmental strategy. In the Central African Republic, iran and Myanmar, for example, female literacy rates are lower compared to male literacy rates—though there are differences that emerge when these rates are compared among one another. High levels of female literacy have been found to have a particularly dramatic impact upon a nation’s social and economic development, given the link between female literacy and lower birth rates, lower poverty rates (as a result of smaller family sizes), and improved health outcomes.[footnoteRef:2] This paper will compare the literacy rates of Cuba, the… Continue Reading...

Women Empowerment in Iran

In order to understand the position of women in iran as far as their roles, rights and empowerment is concerned, it is significant to understand the wider picture of the prevailing condition in the Middle East and the contrast that there is in the West. These two represent different polarities in the context of culture, perspective on women, roles assigned, rights granted and the positions that women hold in these two societies. There is a still not an in depth understanding of the lives of women in the Middle East and the roles… Continue Reading...

Will Congress End the War on Terror

on terror rhetoric out of the White House has continued unabated, with sights now set on regime change in iran, a nation that Trump has singled out as being the biggest supporter of terrorism in the world. During his campaign, Trump identified Saudi Arabia as the “world’s biggest funder of terrorism” (Williams, 2018)—and the shift indicates a new alliance between the Saudis and the White House and the potential likelihood of an escalation of conflict in the region, just as the ISIS threat in Syria appears to be mitigated (Colling, 2016). So while some voters and politicians want the… Continue Reading...

America and the Cold War Mentality

clearly Israel and Saudi Arabia, and toppling regimes (Iraq, Libya, Syria, iran) is what they desire. Since the start of the Cold War, regime change has been America’s bread and butter all over the world. From Italy to iran to Guatemala to Laos to Cuba to Vietnam and so on, the U.S.’s track record speaks for itself. Recent events in the Middle East show as much, as do earlier incidents like the Bay of Pigs and Gulf of Tonkin just to name a few of the more egregious examples (Paul, 2008). America had become the world’s superpower in the… Continue Reading...

Gender equality is not likely to be especially high as an ideal among any of the four new members but other issues like a sense of individualism vs. collectivism is more likely to be strongly felt by the Asian member… Continue Reading...

Muslim Women in Eastern and Western Literature

text should be viewed as one woman’s experience of iran, the entire text can be viewed as offering women in the middle east a means of resistance. Nafisi’s memoir offers women the resistance of the imagination, something that some scholars dismiss, but that others celebrate (Clemens, 584). British and American literature continue to further the trope that Islamic women suffer from oppression—a blanket stereotype that does nothing but perpetuation harmful ideas about the culture.

The Effects of War and Peace on Foreign Aid on iran Prior to 9/11 and the invasion of the Middle East by the U.S., the countries in this region, from Afghanistan to Pakistan to Iraq, Egypt and Libya, had used foreign aid and investment to stabilize their governments and build up their economies. In the wake of 9/11 and with the threat of war and revolution, upheavals have occurred, governments have been toppled, and societies have been decimated. As Scott and Carter (2015) point out, “no region in the world has received… Continue Reading...

Investing in China

alliance with Russia of late as well as its friendships with iran and Syria, which aim to assist with and benefit from China’s New Silk Road. With so many partners eager to help, China’s entrepreneurs at home may have many more options today in terms of investment than they did previously. This could limit the extent to which a Western company has access to the market. Recommendation Because the Chinese market represents such a substantial size of the global marketplace, and because English is a global language (meaning that there is a suitable market for English language products, particularly… Continue Reading...

The Communist Manifesto Summary

bad precedence as it was heavily used in the Iraq- iran war of the 1980, with Iraq, having the backing of the west, using it wantonly to pulverize both soldiers and civilians. The use of airplane as bombers also gained notoriety during the WWII and the wars that came after and was used in terrorizing civilians particularly in the WWII. Notably, the only technological weapon that had profound effect on warfare in WWI was the submarine. The central aspect of war is that it makes the nations involved weaker and susceptible in the coming years. For instance, Germany which was… Continue Reading...

Mission-based Management

A review of Mission-based management: Leading your nonprofit in the 21st century, by Brinckerhoff. Introduction World-famous writer, consultant, and trainer Peter Brinckerhoff’s whole career has been focused on working around, for, and in nonprofit organizations. The University of Pennsylvania (graduation) and Tulane University (post-graduate degree in the Public Health Administration) alumnus swears by the principle that nonprofit firms are mission-based in nature; their business is: to carry out their mission. Ever since 1982, when he established his own consulting company, Corporate Alternatives, Brinckerhoff has aided innumerable firms in increasing their mission-capability (Brinckerhoff, 2009, xv-xiv). His award-winning works include Mission-Based Marketing, Second Edition; Mission-Based… Continue Reading...

The Challenge Of Doctors Without Borders

East—whether it is Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, or iran. As the bombs continue to fall on Afghanistan, nearly 20 years after 9/11—think about that—the U.S. appears no closer to completing its mission than when it started. Doctors without Borders, however, continues to serve these war-torn and ravaged communities. The organization has even recently re-opened its doors in Kunduz, though its office is now just a shadow of what it was prior to its attack in 2015. Still, it is there, back to help the people of Afghanistan, just as it is doing in 80 other countries around the… Continue Reading...

Sociology Feminism and the Symbolism Of the Hejab

critically examines all types of social controls on women, but focuses on laws related to the hejab in iran. Neghibi (1999) claims that the Shah’s law that forbade the hejab and the Ayatollah’s mandatory hejab law had an ironically similar overall effect of controlling women’s bodies through a patriarchal state. The main difference is that the former aligned national identities in iran with Western norms, and the Ayatollah/revolutionary approach created a national identity based on anti-Western and fundamentalist Muslim norms. Theories and Concepts The author works within several related theoretical frameworks: namely feminism, post-colonialism, and critical theory. Related concepts… Continue Reading...

Healthcare Nursing Patients Caring

1. Nursing Theorist Overview Theory guides nursing practice and provides a framework for nurse leadership and healthcare management (McKenna, Pajnikar & Murphy, 2014). All prominent nursing theorists like the individuals covered in the multimedia presentation have influenced nursing practice in some way or another, and all do resonate with me on a personal and professional level. I will incorporate elements of all theorists into my practice in terms of interpersonal communications and attitudes towards health and healing. Of the theorists covered in the presentation, those of Florence Nightingale resonate the most because of her inclusion of environmental factors implicated in… Continue Reading...

Communism in Latin America

and scandal—from the Bay of Pigs incident in which the CIA tried to assassinate Castro to the iran-Contra affair in which the CIA was running guns to the contras in Latin America to overthrow an elected leader. It is no surprise that the Latin American Left is suspicious of the U.S. and even outright harboring of animosity towards the U.S. In a sense, the U.S. has adopted a Machiavellian approach to dealing with the Latin American Left. As Machiavelli explains, governing in regions that have long been administered by corrupt leaders requires a skillful approach: When Cesare occupied the… Continue Reading...

Uae and Japan Relations

relatively smaller mounts from the rest of the world including most especially iran and Russia (Lind, 2014). This heavy reliance on crude oil and gas imports from the UAE has already had some profound implications for these two countries’ future relations. For example, most recently in April 2018, Japan and its top trade partner in the Middle East, the United Arab Emirates, agreed to continue to expand economic, political and defense partnerships as well as an investment protection agreement that resulted from Prime Minister Abe’s visit to the UAE (Kyodo, 2018). It is particularly noteworthy that Japan and the… Continue Reading...

Military Tribunals or Federal Courts Terrorism

Background of Terrorist Trials in the United States Terrorism occupies a unique liminal position, somewhere between acts of war and criminal acts. Because of this, jurisdiction, the rights of terrorist suspects, and other ethical and legal conundrums have lent themselves to an inconsistent and ambiguous terrorist trial system in the United States. Historically, as now, terrorist trials in the United States have taken place in several different jurisdictions, and prosecutorial discretion can be based on factors like circumstantial and situational variables or on political whim. Whether or not the terrorist incident was allegedly perpetrated by a domestic or an international… Continue Reading...
