Hospitality Law Essay

Redskin Trademark Facts Many sports teams use Indian logos and names as their moniker. One such team is the Washington Redskins. There are many people, both Indians and non-Indians, that say that the use of such logos is wrong and that the word “redskin” is racist. However, not all people (even including many Indians) agree on this matter (Cox et al, 2017). Issue The issue to address is whether the trademark/patent and other offices have the right to impose a rule or guideline based on the presumption that “redskin” is racist. There is, of course, the question of whether there Continue Reading...

Covenantal Nomism

The author of this report has been charged with exploring the topic of what is known as covenantal nomism. To be a little more specific, the thesis offered and argued by J.D.G. Dunn is that the book of Galatians is Paul's first "sustained attempt" to address the subject of nomism as mentioned above. Essentially, the idea of nomism is that one has to be born into grace and into God's people. It is the opposite of legalism, which is the idea that one can choose to obey God's commandments and join others in being among other people that are likewise… Continue Reading...

Liberation Theology Meets Humankind Embrace

scientists tend to overstate the inventiveness of their findings. For example, an oligarchic "iron law," as an inclination towards mass apathy among all human institutions is no social scientific discovery (1991). In fact, it is an experiential reflection of individuals who have participated in mass social institutions; this common knowledge, common sense, deduction was subsequently validated by social scientific scholars. If social theologians endeavored in this direction, they too would be equally likely to make this observation. On the other hand, assessment of social scientific input against theological input has been employed by Granfield and others. This broaches a… Continue Reading...

Aristotle and Confucius on Virtue

Comparison between Aristotle and Confucius on Virtue, Good Ethical Character and Conduct Yu (1998) says that the word 'virtue' is derived from the Latin word 'virtus'. 'Vir' means manhood in literal translation from Latin. Consequently, Latin authors used it to translate 'arete'' from Greek, which referred to the perfect qualities of man. Any human action that completes and undertakes its function flawlessly can be said to be a virtue. Virtue is therefore an important human attribute that is necessary in our daily lives. This paper seeks to explore virtue by comparing how the two philosophers: Confucius and Aristotle viewed virtues… Continue Reading...

Ecologising Education Now and in the Future

Value of Ecologising Education and Teaching Sustainable Perspectives Undoubtedly, for some people, the future teems with choices, great, exciting opportunities, and enhanced comfort. But the children of today, even those hailing from affluent homes, already face a world characterized chiefly by environmental destruction, shocking ill-health, and societal inequality, where the modern lifestyle and current actions obstruct future options geared at leading just, sustainable and healthy lives (Scott and Gough, 2003). Twenty-first century kids eventually have the greatest stakes in the world's future, and will be subject to the repercussions of current environmental, economic, and social actions and decisions. Consequently, equipping… Continue Reading...

Thus, all patient health-related information must be discussed in private with patients. Coworkers must only be communicated such information when appropriate. 6. Doctors must maintain records clearly explaining the treatment administered and time of administration. It is imperative for them to show that they overlooked no aspect of patient care and fully fulfilled legal standards. Conclusion All hospital, state, and federal practice regulations and guidelines, and AAMA's ethical code, must be followed when administering everyday care. A key role of… Continue Reading...

Are Labor Unions Good or Bad

to benefit or wages. At the same time, unions have taken full advantage of the empowerment that the law has allowed them and it has gone to excessive lengths. Just as one example, many people decry the fact that there is too much money in politics and the common targets of that argument are the rich and corporations. However, the fact that unions can and do the same thing combined with the fact that they give the political action part of the union dues they collect almost entirely (north of 90%) to one party is unseemly even if the… Continue Reading...

Occupational Health Hazards Associated with Chemicals

formulated should be put into practice for complying with the law. It is not necessary to have a complex or detailed plan. The intent is only to have a blueprint that aids program implementation -- a guarantee that every facet required has been covered. For instance, the written blueprint needs to have a list of chemicals currently on site, indicating their availability and safety materials' availability to workers. Another aspect the plan can cover is who is in charge of the program's many aspects, in one's workplace (OSHA, 2000). When an OSHA inspector visits a facility for checking HCS… Continue Reading...

Political Structures in the Sui, Tang, and Song Dynasties

In Ahmed's (2015) view, from an economic and social standpoint, Emperor Wendi chose Chang'an as his capital; the city is counted among the era's finest cities worldwide. He also initiated the Great Canal's construction. This was a waterway connecting the nation's north and south, facilitating easy bidirectional transport of soldiers from north to south and agricultural produce from south to north, thereby reinforcing the dynasty's might and prosperity.

Analysis Of Murderers Alex and Derek King

a longitudinal research of Boston's disturbed teenaged boys, who had already broken the law and were attending reform school. The researchers gathered comprehensive information on the boys, looking carefully at them through their teenage years. This research was ignored until it was discovered by Laub and Sampson in a Harvard Library box. The two reconstructed the Glucks' data, following-up with their study subjects, who had now reached their late 50s. Some subjects (i.e., troubled Boston boys) remained law breakers even into adulthood, whereas others led highly ordinary lives and did not have any legal issues (Wright, 2008). Laub and… Continue Reading...

Social Bonding Theory

formulating and enforcing laws. However, the two theories arrive at contradictory conclusions. The feminist theory asserts that the law overpowers females by not protecting them as objects of male abuse. A patriarchal society protects the offenders. Meanwhile, according to the gender inequality theory, females are given differential treatment by criminal justice authorities and laws, but this difference is actually to their advantage (Stinchcombe, 2005; Gosselin, 2005). Lastly, considerable evidence exists of the fact that crime has potentially heterogeneous, and not homogeneous, causes, and the heterogeneity depends on population type, unit used for comparison, and crime type. The ideal model… Continue Reading...

The Cost Of Freedom

supporting the notion that freedom is not free. "Government uses threat of law to extract taxes, to diminish property rights, and to coerce compliance with regulations. It can't function like free enterprise because it can't permit free choice to participate- the very premise of government is coercion" (Balyeat, 2014). Going back to the definition of freedom and liberty, Franklin D. Roosevelt defined freedom in his famous Four Freedoms speech in 1941. From this speech, he proposed four essential freedoms each person in the world should enjoy. These are: 1. Freedom of worship 2. Freedom from want 3. Freedom of… Continue Reading...

Relationship Between Effective Communication and Productivity

The purpose of effective communication is to co-ordinate efforts towards achieving team goals, enhancing quality of meetings for information to be shared, decisions collectively made, and for there to be shared understanding about the tasks to be performed. A necessary component of team work is establishing shared meaning of the work, and appropriate means of delivering high quality consumer care (Borrill et.al, 2000). Effective healthcare centers heavily rely on effective communication for them to live up to their missions. Productivity at the workplace improves when information flawlessly flows from one level to another. It leads to more tasks completed, consequently… Continue Reading...

Guns in the Workplace

weapon, in opposition to the owner's wishes. As has been rightly stated by a professor of law at Harvard University, Mark Tushnet, a person who forbids another from bringing a weapon into his/her house wouldn't be violating the latter's rights. Consequently, the American Bar Association supports corporate owners and approves of private owners' time-honored property rights to bar anyone who bears arms (Shaw). A Jacksonville-based construction firm's president, Steve Halverson, acknowledges that employers must be free to choose whether or not to permit guns into their car parks. One should think practically and imagine one is going to somebody… Continue Reading...

10th Amendment and the Supremacy Clause

In addition, the Judges within each State must be bound thus, any Thing in the Laws/Constitution of any State to the opposing all the same. When seeing how these two laws work not in conflict of each other, but together, it can be hard to choose which one to strike down. This is because through these laws, the Constitution lists powers the United States federal government has. With regards to the Tenth Amendment, anything not on the list… Continue Reading...

Congress Vs the Public Library

Act to take full effect. In 2000, Congress passed the CIPA or the Children's Internet Protect Act. This law served as the main issue for the 2003 case. In order for public libraries to qualify for and receive federal aid for internet access, they must install web filtering software. The software disabled access to pornographic/obscene images including other material deemed potentially dangerous for minors. The law was not met with acceptance. The American Library Association along with library patrons sought to challenge the law and claimed it restricted library patrons First Amendment rights (Caristi & Davie, 2015). Library patrons felt… Continue Reading...

How Does Heroin Impact a Caucasian Family

Heroin Impact on Caucasian Family? A large number of Caucasian families are plagued with the issue of heroin use, mostly consumed via injections. This is a major public health issue. Viral hepatitis, HIV and other dangers associated with heroin dependence, as well as social harm resulting from accompanying poverty and crime, exceed those of almost all other drugs used. A majority of Caucasian households are indirectly as well as directly impacted by the aforementioned diseases. Increased pureness and decreased drug costs are potential factors contributing to the trend of decreased age of first-time consumption and increased initiation into habitual consumption… Continue Reading...

Analyzing Critical Criminology

hand, the junior worker is likely to experience the full wrath of the law. His act of criminal deviance is also likely to receive a lot of publicity. Since social conflict theory is focused on inequality issues, a significant element in this narrative is that the punishment meted out in this case is disproportionate, despite the similarity of the crime committed. In a similar scenario, figure out a situation in which such a factory worker is involved in a vandalism incident on a local business. On the other hand, the CEO is involved in a fraudulent act in an… Continue Reading...

Violence Against Women in Macho Paradox

a male-dominated social set-up, more often men are involved in decision and law making, management and administration where the role of women is confined to obey the rules and regulations." (Rodriguez and Wejnert 42) Male dominance and the need for men to show dominance over women creates the tension that inevitably leads for some to violence. When a man rapes a woman, according to Katz, it is not simply because he cannot control his sexual urges, it is because he has a desire to dominate, possess, and conquer someone. This also leads to discussion of women and their role… Continue Reading...

Changing a Pattern Of Behavior

Personality Be Changed When it comes to personality and psychology, not to mention other fields, there is the ever-present question about whether and to what extent personality can be changed to a significant degree. More to the point, the question has become mostly two fold. First, there is the question of nature versus nurture whereby what is environmental (nurture) and what is predisposed from genetics and such (nature) is responsible for how people develop and why. The second prong of the debate centers on how much can be changed once the proverbial pathways are set. While making a broad-based and… Continue Reading...

At-will Employment and the Law

in the common good of stakeholders. Nevada At-Will Policy In Nevada, the at-will employment law is the same as elsewhere: thus, an employer may not fire an employee for discriminatory reasons or for reasons such as sharing disparaging information about the company on social media -- or for adhering to federally protected whistleblower laws, which is the case for Maclean, a former TSA air marshal employee who was essentially fired for blowing the whistle on the Department of Homeland Security. As the Nevada legislature makes clear, "At-will employment is a legal doctrine that defines an employment relationship in which either the… Continue Reading...

Profound Lessons from Childrens Stories

that black people are not segregated by matter of law and so forth. However, the other side of the coin is that some bigots engage in the same behavior. Indeed, many schools would actively resist and block black people from attending their schools and it took the force of the government to overcome that form of civil disobedience. Anyhow, the parallels between Rosa Parks and Yertle are easy to see. One parallel is that there was a turtle in Yertle named Mack that "decided he had taken enough." Indeed, Rosa Parks and those that were of the same mind… Continue Reading...

Lecture Xx by William James

inner communion with the spirit thereof, be that spirit God or law, is a process wherein work is really done and spiritual energy flows in and produces effects, psychologically or material within the phenomenal world" (485). When it comes to the individuality of the human nature and whether lives of all men should show identical religious elements, James openly states "No. And my reason is that I do not see how it is possible that creatures in such different positions and with such different powers as human individuals are, should have exactly the same functions and the same duties"… Continue Reading...

Discrimination Case Analysis

Case Statement This case involved a white woman and a black man who had an encounter in a parking lot and there was controversy if discriminatory action ensued. The two, Hope and Dillon, gave two different versions of the encounter. At its very core, the conflict in the case is about racial discrimination. Legal advocates and scholars have given various definitions to racism and have focused on disparate impact and differential treatment. Their definitions can be crystallized into differential treatment occurring when individuals are accorded unequal treatment because of their race and disparate impact occurring when individuals are subject to… Continue Reading...

Open Source Software

The term "open source software" has been used to refer to computer software whose source code is available for public use, either exactly the way it is, or after certain alterations are made to it. Such software normally requires no license fee.

exist in the workforce. Institutional racism is an outline of social organizations -- for example, governmental organizations, schools, courts of law and banks, -- contributing negative treatment to a group of individuals instituted on their race. It can exist in the workplace when it comes to a job promotion. The supervisor can choose to pick another employee because of their race over somebody else. It also involves disparate treatment which means that a boss treats an employee in a different way than other staffs who were in the same circumstances. This can be illegal, depending on the conditions. An example… Continue Reading...

Covenant Of Exodus and How to Preach It

covenant also differs from Hittite and other ancient Near Eastern covenants in its ability to permeate common law and not simply remain within the province of priests. The Pentateuch becomes law under the new covenant, solidifying Jewish cultural and political identity. Preaching to Christians about the covenant outlined in Exodus can be tricky, but essentially entails contextualization. Far from being negative, the original Sinai covenant singularly expresses God's commitment to upholding His end of the bargain. Moreover, the covenant in Exodus shows how human beings can come to accept boundaries and rules as being beneficial for spiritual, social, and… Continue Reading...

Circumcision was mandatory for babies, eight days after birth -- this requirement confirmed in ritual law and here, was another exilic/postexilic indication (Blenkinsopp, 2009). Another teaching apparent in the fifth chapter, "The Purchase of a Burial Plot," revolves around Sarah's death. The tale's crux is the persistence to completely and thoroughly legalize the plot acquisition. Purchase proceedings develop in the following three stages; first, after confirming his status as an individual dwelling among the Hittites, Abraham explains his need for burial land. Reluctant to get separated from their patrimonial dominion, the request is initially deflected… Continue Reading...

Meanwhile, professionals normally pursue certifications for self-promotion, as well as with an aim at distinguishing between different practitioners. Certification is not compulsory, and if an individual loses his/her certification recognition, or fails to obtain one altogether, he/she will not be liable to governmental fines. This constitutes one difference between certification and licensure (Licensure vs. Certification, n.d). A second difference existing between licensure and certification in case of a number of healthcare professions deals with the organization administering the qualification.

Week 5: Discussion In the American judicial system, the Supreme Court reviews very few cases most of whom are appeals from lower courts. It should not be mandatory for the Supreme Court to review more cases despite having appellate jurisdiction.

Thomas Aqunias

1) What is the nature of the universe? According to Thomas Aquinas, the great theologian and author of Summa Theologica, the nature of the universe may be explained using the following five aspects, namely, motion, an order of efficient cause, necessity and possibility, gradation among things, and governance by the intelligent Almighty. As stated in the text, "In the world some things are in motion." And "...whatever is in motion is put in motion by another." The author's claim here is that for things that are in motion to be transformed to a state of actuality from one of potentiality,… Continue Reading...

Large Corporations Engage in Dishonest Business Practices

Is Current Business Immoral? Current business is immoral in one way or another. It is clear that the top rich people in the society strive as much as they can to avoid situations where regulations or laws are applicable (Lippencott, 2011). This means that they use their financial power to make sure that decisions are made to favor them and not against them. Tax evasion is one of the major issues that make the current business immoral because such corporations find ways of circumventing the system. Large corporations across the globe do not want to pay the taxes that they… Continue Reading...

California Drought

grass into health is not allowed for under the law. Something that makes the proverbial knife go deeper with the California water restrictions is that while agriculture is exempt from the cutbacks despite them using 80% of the state's water, the revenue from those agricultural efforts makes up only two percent of the state's economic dollar flow. In other words, the agricultural people are using eighty percent of the water yet they only account for two percent of the revenue. There is a factor of forty in between those two numbers (Vice, 2016). Not only are the methods with… Continue Reading...

Captain Preston Guilty or Innocent

was that John Adams put on a proverbial clinic when it came to the law and how he presented the case. In comparison, the prosecution did a rather shoddy job given the conflicting statements of the witnesses, the mishandling of the evidence involved and the handling of the jury. Indeed, Adams made it a point to not antagonize or otherwise provoke people in the jury given the support that at least some of them had for the Sons of Liberty, who would obviously not support any idea of the soldiers acting properly [footnoteRef:4].

Enlightenment

17th century and our contemporary world began with an early, optimistic outlook of hope and promise of a better future, exemplified by movements like the Enlightenment, the Scientific and Industrial Revolutions, culminating in the Information Age, environmental awareness and globalisation. It is during this period that a paradigm shift from faith (religion) to reason as the principal source of legitimacy and authority occurred (Badger). The shift occurred against the backdrop of ideals such as science, tolerance, liberty, democracy, secularism, free will and humanism. However, the period is also scared with false starts and failures, violent schisms, world wars, imperialism, terrorism,… Continue Reading...

Mcardie Estate Vs Cox

are perhaps the aspects most carefully covered by healthcare policymakers. Healthcare law may be considered distinctive in the legal sphere, as it is one subdivision that affords numerous scholarship approaches a chance to succeed (Jocelyn, et.al, 2002). Healthcare law is an interdisciplinary and dynamic domain, with numerous legal, scientific, economic, social, political and philosophical grounds for its dynamism. Case Summary McArdie Estate v. Cox was an appellate court case. Gastroplasty reversal surgery was performed on the deceased patient on 26th June, 1995. Gastroplasty refers to a weight-loss tactic of stapling the stomach; the patient in question had two staple… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Brown Vs Board Of Education

much a game-changer when it came to the liberty and rights of minorities. While the law can only go so far, the Civil Rights Act was effective and necessary in that it laid down the gauntlet when it came to racism. Up to that point, the laws and rules about racial discrimination were ambiguous at worst and implied at best. The Civil Rights Act changed all that in that it made it abundantly clear that discrimination based on race, gender, etc. was all illegal and would not be tolerated. The effects that this has had in the half century… Continue Reading...

Role Of the Fda with Prescription Drugs

with the company before the legal storm hit. Indeed, the process whereby Compcare skirted the law and got a bad drug (or at least a bad version of the drug) on the market happened while it was owned by Pharmacare. The two prior-related companies also skirted the law when it came to the ban on compounding pharmacies selling in bulk for general use. Indeed, that is not what compounding pharmacies are supposed to be doing as a matter of law but Pharmacare/Compcare pushed forward so as to maximize revenue. To be honest, they were trying to have their cake… Continue Reading...

Exclusionary Rule in Terry Vs Ohio

that the person searched was about to violate the law: the officer would have to be able to point to a specific characteristic that made him suspect the individual in question. However, this Supreme Court case eventually led to the allowance of the detainment of persons -- of searches and seizures such as traffic stops -- or the kinds of searches that one must undergo when flying. The Terry frisk initiated a snowball effect of more and more leeway on the part of law enforcement and security personnel to be able to detain persons, search them and their belongings,… Continue Reading...

The law is obviously an awesome tool to set high-level standards about discrimination and the treatment of people from differing background including along racial, ethnic and religious lines, just to name a few. Further, the disabled should absolutely be included in the scope of this question and the wider discussion about diversity and so forth.

Problems Unsolved and a Nation Divided

SWOT Analysis of the U.S. Economy economy has historically been the strongest economy in the world. The economy boasts leadership in areas such as innovation, entrepreneurship, higher education, communications infrastructure, capital markets, and business management (Porter et al., 2016). These aspects make the U.S. economy an envy of many countries around the world. In addition, the economy has demonstrated quite impressive recovery since the devastating 2008/2009 recession. Despite these strengths, the economy has been deteriorating in the last one decade or so, with many of the economic indicators declining to disturbing levels. Indeed, the competitiveness of the economy has been… Continue Reading...

period of loss that Charlie's life begins to change -- but not without a cost. Charlie's sister-in- law Marion cannot forgive Charlie for what he did to her sister, his wife: he locked her out of their home in the middle of winter after he saw her kiss another man.

Modern Problems in Nigeria

STAKEHOLDERS There is a multitude of stakeholders in the case study of Boko Haram in the counterterrorism in Africa movement. The main stakeholder is the Christian government in Nigeria that is systematically losing territory to this terrorist organization. Another prominent stakeholder is the lawful citizens of that government. These citizens are routinely losing family members to instances of kidnapping at the hands of this organization (Burke, 2016). They are also being injured and murdered by the terrorist efforts of this organization (Urmacher and Sheridan, 2016). Finally, Boko Haram itself is a stakeholder in this case study.

Blood Of Tyrants George Washington and the Forging Of the Presidency

the letters of George Washington discussing torture, a description from a witness of the military court of law that undertook the execution of Major Andre, and letters of the nation's founders, cautioning against government debt (Beirne 376). All these evidences together with Beirne's style of writing that makes such historical events come to life make the interpretation significantly resounding. The author did include enough and sufficient evidence to prove his thesis as he utilizes both secondary data and primary data from George Washington himself such as his letters (Beirne 161). What is more, the argument presented throughout the book… Continue Reading...

According to J.

Mitigating Lawless African Acts Problem Definition and Intervention Description Boko Haram is a militant Islamist organization that it terrorizing large portions of Nigeria, since at least 2011 (Uhrmacher and Sheridan, 2106). Their methods are fairly typical of terrorists. These include suicide bombings, kidnappings, and attacks on everyday civilians. The crux of their methodology is that they are targeting civilians since they do not have the means to battle the largely Christian government via conventional warfare. Therefore, they have resorted to terrorist attacks to cause residents to flee and to attempt to gain territory in such a manner. The principle means… Continue Reading...

This showed that he had severe impulse control problems, triggered especially by anger. He also portrayed symptoms of Oppositional Defiant and Conduct Disorders (Diamond, 2013). By the age of seventeen, Oswald had lived in over twenty cities, having attended many different schools. Living with a self-involved mother gave him limited support, structure and stability. Oswald, not surprisingly, probably in search of better structure and transition into a man, joined the Marine Corps of the U.S. when… Continue Reading...

They include clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners.

Hence, existence denotes attaining self-possession within spiritually -guided and -defined life. Supporting the above, the philosopher crystallizes the three primary stages of religion, ethics and aesthetics in the self-realization and existence process (Obinyan, 2014). Stronger reflection will prove that in today's world, all of humanity is some or other stage, based on how far they have attained their life goals.

History Of Government Intervention in Tobacco Markets

Tobacco industry has seen significant government intervention since at least the New Deal. Tobacco farmers have typically received subsidies for their crops and the benefits of marijuana prohibition but in more decent decades they have also faced increasingly strict controls on the sale of tobacco products. Prior to the era of restrictive cigarette sales, and buoyed by subsidies, tobacco was one of the more lucrative products to farm in the United States, a situation that has changed of late. The most recent move on the part of the government was the Transitional Tobacco Payment Program, which as the name implies… Continue Reading...

It is a prime instrument for reducing the risk of convictions resting on factual error," ("In Re Winship"). Given… Continue Reading...

In 2011, the NY police force used the frisk policy rule to stop approximately 685,724 people, however, the number reduced to 22,939 in 2015. The policy has become a controversial issue because over 5 million people were frisked during the first decade after introducing the policy. In 2002, the numbers of the reported cases were 685,724 in 2011 before slashing down to 533,042 in 2012.

In short, the mindset about the Jews changed and they went so far as to change the… Continue Reading...

Current Federal Law Related to Marijuana

Marijuana as a Medical Option In my opinion, a federal rule that bars doctors from easing severely-ill patients' pain through marijuana administration/prescription is an appalling, unwise, and heavy-handed one. Federal lawmakers must revoke their ban on marijuana for clinical application, in case of acutely ailing individuals, and leave it to doctors to decide whom to administer/prescribe this drug to. The government ought to alter marijuana's current schedule 1 (potentially addictive without existing medical utility) status, to schedule 2 status (possibly addictive but having accepted clinical utility) and correspondingly regulate it (Should marijuana be a medical option?). Medical cannabis has effectively… Continue Reading...

Police Vehicle Pursuits

Police Pursuit The law enforcement system's need of pursuing suspected lawbreakers has, perhaps, existed ever since the very first laws to tackle crime have been written. Right from the era of human traveling on foot to horse-riding to today's motorized transport, it is highly evident that police pursuits may be highly dangerous. The year 2003 witnessed approximately 35,000 pursuits of criminals across America, with 14,000 (i.e. almost 40% of these pursuits) ending in car crashes. No less than 50% of these 14,000 crashes gave rise to injuries. Furthermore, fatalities linked… Continue Reading...

Mcmahon (2016) defines 'juvenile probation' as a type of juvenile sentence wherein a juvenile lawbreaker is allowed to reside within his/her communities, instead of being sent to a new home or to prison. Numerous reasons may be cited as to why juvenile lawbreakers are allowed such leniency. It is up to the court to decide whether any juvenile offender is entitled to probation or not, as well as the probation terms. Probation as a whole, forms a rather critical area of criminal… Continue Reading...

A good illustration is in the sense that health communication promotions provide education and encourage people… Continue Reading...

The clause allowing for inflation will allow the real value of the fines to be retained if the law is not revised for some time. The compulsory IID is moved to the second office from the third offence, as this demonstrated that the initial punishment and deterrent was not sufficient. This may help to increase safety and reduce accidents, and may prevent further reoffending.  Works Cited  Fell, J C, and R B Voas.… Continue Reading...

Obtaining Informed Consent in Ontario

Latha (2010) notes, "Legally, treatment without consent is permissible only where common law or statute provides such authority" (p. 96) and in the case of the schizophrenic patient who refuses to take the prescribed medication the question comes down to whether the person is legally capable of making a decision. If so, then he has every right to refuse treatment; if not, treatment may be given him. This is the essence of the Health Care Consent Act, which is used to determine whether such a person as the schizophrenic patient is capable of deciding… Continue Reading...

Of course, firms that manufacture anything rely on suppliers even more and GSK is certainly in this realm. There are the drug components and such that they need, the materials for their bottles, the supplies and such for keeping up their machines and the supplies they need to keep their back office working well. Regardless of what is being supplied to GSK, it is… Continue Reading...

Central to the evolution of Confucian orthodoxy, the teachings of Zhu Xi understood the transmission of the dao, the daotong, in terms of the natural ordering and hierarchy of the universe, and of universal laws. Daotong is conceptualized as a flow, a transmission of actual energy from a source higher on the cosmological hierarchy, or from the principle of Heaven, tianli (Adler 143).

Ethics and Moral Guidelines Criminal Justice

person towards ethical actions ("Six Ethical Theories Rough Overview," n.d.). Week 2 -- Discussion 2 The law sometimes, and perhaps usually, reflects ethical codes. However, many laws remain unethical. Often, pragmatism and/or fear guide public policy in criminal justice more than ethics. The law usually reflects the difficulty balancing different ethical frameworks. A good example is drug laws. Drugs can cause addiction, which can cause personal harm. Drug prohibition is designed to "protect" the individual by restricting his or her freedom to act. However, the greater ethical principle of freedom as well as privacy also needs to be respected. Criminalizing drug… Continue Reading...

for the management. Unionisation may also pose a challenge to the management when an organisation lacks in-house expertise on labour law (Dhal, 2015). Today's labour landscape is characterised by a complex string of rules and regulations that employers must adhere to in dealing with employees. This is further complicated by unions, which place their own demands on employers. These demands may result in sophisticated labour-management issues, which an organisation may not have the expertise to handle on its own. To address this challenge, most organisations employ labour law or labour relations specialists. In spite of their disadvantages, unions play an… Continue Reading...

While arguing for the American law to be applied and for the case to be heard by an American court, the plaintiff made a plea concerning the risk the medical incompetence of the medical personnel attached to the ship posed to the American passengers aboard. The court however, turned down the plaintiff's plea citing ad populum since the victim was not an American passenger (Saunders,1993). Argumentum ignoratum The… Continue Reading...

Islam Developing Trade Routes in Africa and Asia

Spread of Islam in Africa and Asia Along Trade Routes The Islam religion spread in Asia and Africa mainly due to trade of such goods as spices, gold, as also due to slaves. The advantages of proximity with the greatly profitable and powerful traders of the Islam religion triggered the conversions of merchants and rulers' into Muslims. Islam spread slowly; it took centuries, but in most places where the conversion took place, people still hold on to the religion (Debrouse). This paper explores the reasons of spread of Islam religion along Asian and African trade routes, particularly centering on the… Continue Reading...

An Indepth Analysis Of Diversity Management

marked by less importance to cultural identity; the justification for diversification was adherence to law and reduced liability against personnel discrimination. The approach deems the dominant culture to be superior and sound and expects every staff member to adapt him/herself to that culture (Mor Barak, 2014). Individual approaches originate from how far practices or policies are applied in recognizing and supporting personnel diversity. Workplace diversity generates chances for individual growth of workers. Exposure of individuals to novel ideas, standpoints and cultures aids them in intellectually reaching out and better understanding their standing within their immediate, and the external global,… Continue Reading...

Criminal Justice Bias

according to this view, the entire society is engaged in the act of breaking the law at one point or another. One possible policy from sociological grounding would be to decriminalize the victimless crimes, if not drastically reducing their penalties (Schur, 1965). The Biases and Assumptions that Influenced Participants in the Case Process Investigators There was a federal organized investigation launched to probe the tactics of the aggressive tactics applied by the street crimes unit. Proponents of the unit claimed that the unit had helped New York to get rid of thousands of guns from the streets. They pointed… Continue Reading...

Unlike the direct approach John Gotti -- the press's gangster star -- took during the eighties, the present-day mafia has gone back to its original approach, attempting at maximum invisibility, according to research scholars and law enforcement personnel. For example, the Genovese household, traditionally recognized as the biggest, most secretive and strongest crime family, currently probably utilizes a rotating leadership panel for its everyday operations, for preventing specific boss from becoming the targets of prosecutors.

Racialized Violence and Police Brutality in Usa

brutality against visible minorities also erodes public trust in the institution of the law and the system of law enforcement. Those effects are palpable not only at the community level but also at the individual level of perceptions of police, as one study shows a substantial number of Americans have evolved contempt for law enforcement, suspicion of law enforcement, or "perceive law enforcement as agents of brutality," (Chaney and Robertson 480). Community policing models cannot take root or hope to mitigate or reverse the effects of these results unless there is a nationwide policy change to law enforcement organizational… Continue Reading...

Ford Motor Company External Threats Analysis

Ford faces many threats. In terms of operational/strategic threats, the company faces intense competition in all of its markets. There is no product or geography where Ford does not face intense competition. This drives down margins and exposes Ford to the possibility of declining sales.

Ford is under threat from electric cars and self-driving cars, both of which threaten to completely transform the landscape for personal transportation in the coming years. Thus, Ford's position in the marketplace is… Continue Reading...

Role Of Confucianism in Art in China

principles of Daoism and Buddhism, the Confucian themes of law, order, structure, and hierarchy become salient. Moral rectitude in the Confucian model means ascription to a patriarchal social order, and obedience to authority. Perhaps the most obvious way Confucian moral precepts are depicted in art is through the careful ordering of the world evident in Chinese scroll paintings. "Admonitions of the Instructions to the Court Ladies" is a horizontal scroll painting that accompanies a literary tale with themes related to "wifely virtue," a prime Confucian moral precept (Kleiner, 2016b, p. 473). Yet is more than just wifely virtue that… Continue Reading...

Choosing a Corporation over a Sole Proprietorship

Business Organization When determining which form of business organization to adopt for one's business, it is important to consider a number of variables before making a decision. These factors can include: the level of control the owner wishes to have, the structure of the company, the company's level of vulnerability to lawsuit, expectations of profit/loss, and whether there is a need for re-investment of capital back into the company. These considerations can greatly impact the form of organization one chooses. For the case of West Casing, these factors when addressed point to an S Corporation being the best option for… Continue Reading...

will examine this tension further, as it continues to manifest to this day. Brief Historical Overview During Ottoman times, religious law co-existed with civil law. Ataturk, after founding the Republic of Turkey, denied Islam status as the state religion in 1928 as the culmination of reforms that started in 1919 after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in the First World War. The state is not irreligious, but rather takes a view of religious neutrality. The first two articles of the Turkish Constitution establish the republic as the form of government, and that "the Republic of Turkey is a democratic, secular… Continue Reading...

Ramayana Mahabharata Divine Incarnation

human history -- when there is some crisis point where chaos reigns over law, order, or morality. "Whenever negative energies are rampant and the world is in great peril, in danger of imminent destruction or chaos, Vishnu is said to return. He comes to guide humanity back to righteous living (dharma) in order to preserve the harmonious order of the universe," (Halligan, n.d., p. 89). Both the Ramayana and the Mahabharata show the core function of avatara, as Vishnu incarnates specifically to restore order and "rejuvenate" the society, lifting it up and redeeming it from its wayward ways (Woods,… Continue Reading...

International Law on Overt and Covert Interventions

The international law is the universal rules and principles guiding the conducts and relations between nation-states, and international organizations. The modern concept of international law started in the 17th century, and has been accepted as the rules and conducts guiding the relations among nation states. In the contemporary international environment, rules and principles guiding the states' conducts have become critically important to maintain international peace and security, and preventing violation and aggression. However, the principle of the international law prohibits the use of force… Continue Reading...

Cruelty and Intolerable Acts

depending on the political climate at the time, "encased in law and custom," and "has often licensed slavery, genocide, and countless other cruelties" (Berreby, 2011). Livingston himself refers to a "hierarcy of value" in which people have a different esteem for all of the things in existence including the theological, the sentient, non-sentient, people, animals, and others. It is because of this hierarchy that people are able to reduce the value of humans -- because there are already other things in this hierarchy that are both lower and higher than humans are. When one is able to place people… Continue Reading...

Video Cameras and Public Safety

some may see this as an invasion of privacy, those working in law enforcement know the advantages of having proof of traffic violations. Furthermore, video cameras may be used to potentially spot other kinds of crimes that can lead to breakthroughs in major criminal cases. Therefore, countries like England have added video cameras to airports, public areas, and intersections to promote safety in these areas through constant surveillance (The Telegraph, 2016). Still, video cameras can be costly to implement, maintain, and monitor. Citizens may also feel their privacy invaded without their consent. Is having video cameras as part of… Continue Reading...

Global Governance Human Security

complaint. In domestic societies, the internalization of human rights standards, by means of law and culture is of paramount significance for the agreements to become universally effective. According to Hirschmann, the reporting mechanism and awareness-raising drives of NGOs and transnational organizations, for instance, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights continues to be significant because of the lack of international enforcement methods. Lastly, I am also interested in addressing the execution gap in global leadership. There should be a sanction to nations that are unwilling to instigate treaties, while the presidency over significant global human rights… Continue Reading...

Should the Government Ban Assault Rifles

be $325 per resident (Webster, et al., 2012). The researchers summarise that programs laid by law are stronger than "gun laws." They analyse that the most effective plans incorporated punitive and supportive plans to reduce the violence. It's important to note that research findings are more than theoretical. Supreme Court Justice, Stephen Brever, and America Court of Appeals Judge, Richard Posner, are leading jurists in the country, who recently made a review of relevant academic work and combined it into their own opinion on rifle restriction connected cases. As stated in New York Times, the jurists concluded that the… Continue Reading...

Social Shift from Religion to Spirituality

Religion and Spirituality in a Broad Sense Spirituality and religion are two terms that have rather unstable, historically changing definitions, characterized by numerous implied and explicit theological considerations. Further, the general contention is that these definitions are either overly specific or overly generic. A more astonishing fact is, possibly, these researches' level of concurrence that spirituality represents a private, budding, personal and emotional sphere, whilst religion is more public, group-based and fairly stable. Interviews and questionnaire tools arising out of these definitions characteristically undertake measurements of the spirituality element by posing questions with regard to people's self-identity, psychological experiences, and… Continue Reading...

Oath Horatii

from Albano city, Curatii, which also happened to be their brother in- law. Jacques painting is depicted in two parts. On one side, the left, the men are portrayed in patriotic mood and valour while the other side shows these men seeming to have resigned to their fate. Such a scenario is in contrast with the code of unity expected. Further, it is clear that the composition isn't centrally placed. David decides to go liberal and ignore some of the traditional rules of art and design. Consequently, with the painting, David emerged as a founder of a new school of… Continue Reading...

Businesses Run by Women

most of their money in three sectors: retail; professional services such as consulting, accounting or law; and fashion" (Petrilla, 2016). Two of these areas, retail and fashion are women dominated areas due to shopping practices of women versus men. For equality to truly emerge, women entrepreneurs must excel in more areas, especially presently male-dominated areas. A decade ago, Ahl wrote a research article explaining the results of research in women entrepreneurship. The researcher discovered despite "intentions to the contrary and in spite of inconclusive research results, a tendency to recreate the idea of women as being secondary to men… Continue Reading...

Psychology, Financial Decision-making, and Management Of Household

ambiguous expense, classification of expenses into different categories and psychology of belief in Islamic law, have a positive relationship with the level of spending and financial decision-making. Secondly, classification of expenses into different categories influences the level of spending and financial decision-making. Another expected result is that the psychology of belief in Islamic law and lack of extensive Islamic banking abroad have a positive correlation with spending and financial decision-making. Introduction The aspect of financial education and understanding has become a contentious and significant issue. Its importance has been realized largely because there is increasing intricacy of financial products… Continue Reading...

Discrimination and Harassment at the Workplace

to Prevent or End Harassment The starting point for any programme is an equality policy. It does not require a law to clarify it and is an integral part of a business strategy. Employees should be given a harassment-free working environment to be able to give their best (ACAS, 2005). There should be an action plan to complement the equality policy and it should be in tandem with key tasks regarding what should be done and who should do it. It should be monitored as any other managerial task, and most importantly, be among the objectives and responsibilities of individuals… Continue Reading...

Interpreting Biblical Text

help prevent the man's lineage and name from being extinguished as stated in Mosaic law in Deuteronomy 25:5-6. Onan was greedy and selfish because he wanted inheritance for himself and the family, which made him to spill semen on the ground when having intercourse with his brother's wife. On this basis, Onan was wicked before God's sight because of his selfish and greedy ambitions. Therefore, this Scripture has nothing to do with masturbation, but focuses on Onan's greed and selfishness. 3. Exodus 21:22-23 This verse has been used as a proof-text to prohibit abortion. Based on the text itself,… Continue Reading...

Psychological Case Study Using Ipt

Dawn's presenting problems, such as a sleep-related disorder and anxiety symptoms, it is possible that she may be diagnosed with a mild depression, or to use the DSM-V code, F32.0 Major depressive disorder, single episode, mild. Measured on the Ham-D scale of depression, Dawn's score will likely fall between 9-12 (Weissman, Markovitz & Klerman, 2007). However, monitoring Dawn over time will be necessary to see if the depression is recurrent. It is unclear when her "feeling stressed" about her grades began, exactly, or when her sleep patterns started to be disrupted. Therefore, if a DSM-V diagnosis is necessary, the F32.0… Continue Reading...

Japan and Confucianism in Art and Society

The depiction has symbolic meaning: the poet represents the rules and strict adherence of law that is Confucianism; the Buddhist represents Buddhism and renunciation, and the Taoist represents the Tao. Figure 3. Three Laughers at Tiger Ravine by Chuan Shinko -- (mid +15C). Tokyo Nat'l Museum. http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/japanese-confucianism.html The bridge represents the "way" to the other shore of life and the three walking the bridge together represents the idea that no one philosophy alone is sufficient to get to the other side -- but instead the three have to go together.

How Confucianism Impacted China

laws or fear of punishment: one could know the law and recognize the letter of the law but still think up ways to get around it. Virtue, however, would be a concept that would be higher than any manmade law and there would be no way to "get around" virtue -- so it should be the ideal that should guide men. Moreover, this ideal was already present or planted in men's minds and all they had to do was yield to it and strive to uphold it. Thus, Confucianism taught virtue leadership and this is one of the main… Continue Reading...

Business Organization Questions

.....ethical dilemma you know of, and how it was dealt with by management. Recently, Harvard Business School itself was involved in an ethical scandal when it turned out its dean might be involved in a gross case of conflict of interest (Galani, 2016). Conflicts of interest similar to this one at HBS happen often in organizations of all sizes. I was recently made aware of a case in which a local organization experienced an ethical dilemma involving a conflict of interest. One member of the board of directors had previously served on the city council, and still retained strong connections… Continue Reading...

Nigeria Boko Haram and African Terrorism

through poor governance, weak institutions, and systematic corruption. Boko Haram has evolved beyond an agenda of Islamic fundamentalism and Sharia law towards a complete platform promising socio-economic empowerment to Nigeria's most vulnerable populations. Understanding Boko Haram requires acknowledgment of the socio-economic and political forces that impacted its initial development and ensure its ongoing success in securing new recruits. Government responses have neglected to frame Boko Haram in terms of root causes and conflict theory. Conflict theory, deprivation theory, and gender theory will become the most fruitful methods of analyzing Boko Haram with an ultimate goal of offering sensible and implementable… Continue Reading...

How Supreme Court Justices Are Appointed

the Supreme Court, its purpose as the final court to determine the constitutionality of local, state, and federal law. The Supreme Court needs to remain distinct from the other branches of government and not subject to temperamental swings in the electorate. The social norms and values that change more gradually over time are, however, reflected in the Supreme Court. Supreme Court decisions reflect these generational changes, as when Brown v. Board of Education overturned Plessy v. Ferguson from the previous generation. Although the public might prefer a swifter response to social change, some changes may be unwanted, such as… Continue Reading...

Violence, Sex and Other Things

rather than sex education," and in fact it is a law that this course must be taught in the primary school. The core principles of the Dutch model of sexuality education include "sexual diversity and sexual assertiveness...respect for all sexual preferences and...skills to protect against sexual coercion, intimidation and abuse." It is hard to argue against this kind of comprehensive preparation for a young person's membership in the civil society, which is why this is exactly what should happen in the United States. Parents should not be able to opt out of a program like this, because doing so… Continue Reading...

Darwinism and Evolution in Woodlanders

the character of Edgar Fitzpiers. On the surface, Fitzpiers is everything a father could want for a son-in- law, and therefore ideal for the propagation of the species through his daughter: the propagation of the family bloodline. Through the process of "natural" selection in a patriarchal society, the father selects the socially appropriate mate for his daughter based on the same superficial characteristics attractive mates might have in the wild: more impressive plumage, or being plumper and therefore perceived of as being healthier. In the case of a human being in Hardy's society, a desirable mate for the process of… Continue Reading...

Pornography Child Abuse and Coersion

essential to preventing the next stage: coerced participation in pornography. Unfortunately, child pornography is a global industry and law enforcement often faces great difficulty tracking down the black market sources for child pornographic material, human traffickers, and other perpetrators. The sex trafficking on minors is a major global industry, integrated with organized crime, and recent research is emerging with alarming statistics revealing the extent of the problem with 5,544 reported cases in the United States alone in 2015 (Mcpherson, 2016). These are just the reported cases; it is likely that the majority of incidents have not yet been reported.… Continue Reading...

Democracy or Not for Economic Development

More than that, South Sudan needs to pay attention to the long run. Whether or not it is able to exploit its oil resources, it has youth. Like most of Africa, South Sudan is young. Its median age is 17.That sets it up for a run of economic growth when those young people come of age -- demographic bubbles are associated with strong economic growth. The African Union… Continue Reading...

Gothic Literature in 18th Century England

Relationship of "The Old English Baron" and "Vathek" to 18th Century English Gothic Fiction The rise of Gothic fiction in English literature coincided with the advent of the Romantic Era at the end of the 18th century and beginning of the 19th century. Gothic masterpieces such as Shelley's Frankenstein, Lewis's The Monk, and Stoker's Dracula would capture the imagination by fueling it with the flames of horror, suspense, other-worldliness and mystery. These elements are significant because the Age of Enlightenment had been characterized by a cold, objective, analytical focus on nature and humankind. It had been based on the concept… Continue Reading...

Personal Versus Professional Values

is abuse and should never be happening. Regardless, a social worker has to go by what the law is and that is generally the idea that spanking is legally permissible so long as the child is not being struck in the head or face, no marks are being given and no weapons/switches are being used (Reamer, 2013). Anyhow, the question becomes how all of this can be used and employed when it comes to the untimely and unplanned pregnancy of Eboni. As noted in the case parameters, she herself is spiritual but not overly religious while her parents are… Continue Reading...

Moral Issues with Internet Privacy

Firstly, one needs to examine the chief element of guidance provided by the law on the matter of internet privacy. Possibly the most straightforward moral problem under the 'internet privacy breach' umbrella is malicious software (e.g., spyware) utilization for perpetrating cybercrime and stealing private data. A number of cybercrimes are made illegal by the governments of nations like the United States, European nations, etc., thus echoing unanimity with the fact that it is wrong to steal. In America, in specific, federal governmental regulations against cybercrime encompass: Dishonest practices and acts; Providing fake information and IDs; Credit card frauds; Computer-related… Continue Reading...

19th Amendment

of inhabitants based on gender. In other words, females ought to demand the Congress to enact a law forbidding gender discrimination by states. This would afford voting rights to females, if the law was incorporated into the Constitution. Further, Anthony cites various failed female attempts at gaining suffrage. She claims their pleas were simply overlooked and stacked amid National archives. She argues that the government would be unable to overlook a large petition and the petitioners' cause. Lastly, she draws attention to African-American males' voting rights and raises the logical question of whether Black men and women are actually… Continue Reading...

Unfair Treatment Of People with Privilege

associated with privileges. For example, if I got into trouble with the law, I can afford the best lawyers to help to get me out of trouble. This gives the impression that I am not subject to the usual rules. In the same context, knowing other people who wield power may also be beneficial. Indeed, they may use influence to help me. This is influence that I can only access due to my social standing, which is also related to wealth. This creates privileges that may be seen by some as unfair. This has the potential to create a… Continue Reading...

Pnac the Osp and Iraqs Wmds

Intelligence in War: Iraq, WMDS, and the Rise of the Policymakers In 2003, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell testified before the UN Security Council that Iraq had mobile weapons labs and was in possession of uranium, which was being used in the country's WMD program. His testimony was based on faulty U.S. and British Intelligence: the invasion of Iraq that followed found no evidence of such labs or of such a program. Joe Wilson, husband of CIA operations officer Valerie Plame and former U.S. Ambassador to Gabon penned an op-ed for The New York Times entitled "What I Didn't… Continue Reading...

Research and Theory in Criminal Justice

order to effectively explore nuances of the issues that face the society with regards to law enforcement, criminal justice researchers tend to rely on empirical data, which is considered useful. The dependence on empirical data in criminal justice is evident in the fact that most of the existing criminology journals are quantitative as compared to qualitative studies (Jacques, 2014). Empirical research data is data obtained from direct and indirect observation of a complex social issue whereas anecdotal data is data obtained from someone else's observation or experience of an issue. In the criminal justice field, empirical research data is… Continue Reading...

False Confession Phenomena

counterpoint reveals that there are certain circumstances in which law enforcement have taken active measures to determine the truth without the presupposition of guilt or the outcome of a jury trial. Finally, the paper deconstructs those specific circumstances prior to concluding they are largely inapplicable to the vast majority of interrogations relevant to the court cases examined within this document. Broad Discussion of the Literature in a Funnel Format False confessions do not occur infrequently within the criminal justice system. There are a variety of reasons explicating this reality, ranging the gamut in scope and focus. On the one… Continue Reading...

Chesapeake Middle Colonies Georgia and the Carolinas

idealistic principles dissolved when the state began struggling for self-sufficiency. The law prohibiting slavery and liquor were commonly overlooked and ultimately totally abandoned. Georgia attained royal colony status in the year 1754. It progressed gradually in the course of the next ten years; however, after the year 1763, it witnessed swift growth. Almost unconsciously, it became a slave-based community with a thriving economy. The Carolinas -- this southern-most settlement in mainland America comprised of two extensively disjointed regions, the South and North. The latter area (called Albemarle) began to be colonized by about the 1650s. The chief occupation here… Continue Reading...

Marshall further stated that the courts were especially duty-bound to safeguard citizens' rights -- even if it was against the nation's president himself. At that time, his ill-disguised reprimanding of President Thomas Jefferson regarding the rule of law proved a lot more controversial compared to his proclamation regarding judicial review (a doctrine that was commonly accepted). When it came to resolving the last question (i.e., was it the right remedy for the US Supreme Court to issue the 'mandamus' writ?), the Chief Justice tackled the… Continue Reading...

How Democracy Leads to Tyranny

Liberty of the press, for instance, could be seen as a safeguard against tyranny and authoritarianism by giving voice to the opinion of just men and women -- but it could also give way to the base and/or false opinions of an individual suddenly becoming adopted by the whole, which would be bad in an altogether different way (there would be liberty but error would reign).[footnoteRef:2] With error reigning over the minds of men, liberty would not last long in turn, for… Continue Reading...

In the same context knowing other people who wield power may also be beneficial, as they may use influence to help me, influence that I can only access due to my social standing which is also related to wealth.

Feminist Perspective Of the Sex Industry

Prostitution and Feminism: Questions for a Modern Society In answer to the question of whether prostitution is just another line of work, the most comprehensive and simplest answer is to say, no, it is not. The reason for this is that there are too many complexities associated with prostitution -- not just ethical and moral issues -- but also social, legal, economic, political, safety, and theoretical issues that color the sex industry. True, one could argue that any field of labor or industry could be discussed using the same terms, but the issue with prostitution is that it is a… Continue Reading...

John Stuart Mill’s on Liberty

ability to make a choice is constrained and the law arguably has an obligation to protect her and also to protect society from supporting an inequitable relationship between husbands and wives. A similar argument could be made in regards to suicide. A strict observance of Mill's harm principle would suggest that self-harm (either suicidal or suicidal behaviors) is an acceptable but tragic liberty because it only harms the self, not others. Mill only suggests that individuals who are not competent such as children and the insane cannot make choices in regards to their future. But not all persons who… Continue Reading...

Health Services Internships at Langone Medical

Internship at NYU At the NYU Langone Medical Center where I interned for 15 weeks from September 19th, 2016, to December 31st, 2016, I undertook several duties. While these duties varied and introduced me to a number of different activities connected to the internship process, the work environment at the medical center, laws that pertain to volunteering and more, my overall experience provided me with insight not only of the responsibilities of an intern at the Langone center but also of complexities faced by such an institution. This paper will provide an assessment and reflection on my internship at Langone… Continue Reading...

Uk Trade Policy and Its Departure from the Eu

national sovereignty by placing multi-national corporations above the rule of law in the countries where they do business. The potential advantages of the UK leaving the EU are evident in the fact that Britain will be in a position to negotiate its own trade agreements. While these may take time, the positive side of this type of situation is that the UK is no longer represented by a foreign body but rather by its own national leaders who can put forward the type of nationalist interests that have become popular in recent years. Thus, outside the EU, the UK… Continue Reading...

Global Comparisons in Workplace Discrimination

another owing to his or her age. This has even instigated a law proscribing the discrimination of employees over the age of 40 years. Another form of discrimination across the world is that of ethnic and racial discrimination. For instance, in the Americas and European region, discrimination can be centered on race, for instance, African-Americans getting less work prospects compared to Whites. On the other hand, in expanses such as Africa, there are several instances of ethnic discrimination with people favoring individuals from their respective ethnic community (Darity Jr. and Mason, 2004). Other forms of discrimination are based on… Continue Reading...

Need for Strong Moral Character in Criminal Justice System Participants

objectives and adeptness and client interests; between personal prejudices, interests, and views and professional values. In this respect, all law enforcement leaders are required to refrain from unethical conduct when carrying out their duties. Ethicality is crucial, considering their job involves making life-altering decisions targeted at involved individuals (both victims and offenders). For instance, policemen who put legislation into force and work within societal settings are empowered to snatch away citizens' freedom, undertake investigations, issue tickets and engage in covert operations. Arbitrariness may arise if police officials, who are criminal justice agents, aren't bound by ethical rules. The end… Continue Reading...

Solow Growth Model and Unemployment

The concept of the business cycle is that the rate of growth in an economy will shift over time, but in a more or less repeatable pattern. The structure of the pattern is, roughly, that economies will grow quickly, then a turning point will occur and the economy will turn into recession. After a trough, the business cycle will begin anew with a fresh period of growth. For most Western economies, characterized by rising populations, intensive resource exploitation and continuous technological improvements, are on a long-run growth trend in their GDP. The business cycle should be identifiable outside of that… Continue Reading...

Annotated Bibliography on False Confessions

is tremendously helpful in my research because it shows not only that false confessions occur due to bad law enforcement procedures, but also that there is a widespread misperception of how pervasive the problem has become. Garrett, B.L. (2010). The substance of false confessions. Stanford law Review 62(4): 1051-1118. This article examines the content of interrogations, including what was said by the interviewer and by the suspect. Garrett (2010) also shows how the text of the confession is used during key moments in the criminal justice procedure, leading to what the author calls "confession contamination," (p. 1051). Because the… Continue Reading...

Minority Women in the Oil and Gas Industry

for many South Africans. When I was born, apartheid was still the law of the land in South Africa and I was classified as "colored" (i.e., neither white nor black) and commonly referred to as "hotnots" (i.e., bastards). As a result, our family was forced to first live in a tiny apartment on the outskirts of Cape Town called Woodstock, or more commonly the "mixed slums." When Woodstock became overcrowded, our family was forcibly relocated to the desert-like Cape Flats, 25 miles further from Cape Town. Because these actions were sanctioned by the government and were therefore "legal," I… Continue Reading...

Social Psychology

and am fascinated by the ways people behave under pressure from authority figures, particularly law enforcement. I am also interested in scenario three related to the psychological aspects of disaster preparedness, but am more interested and concerned with criminal justice generally. Therefore, I narrowed down my selection of the scenarios mainly because of personal interest and curiosity about the subject matter, which motivates my desire to conduct the research necessary to write a proposal and complete the report. Scenario Two described involving false confessions raises several points about the ethics of criminal justice, and how officers lie in order… Continue Reading...

Incompatibility Between Islam and Human Rights

this document is to explore the incompatibility between Islam and Human Rights. Statement of Problem The Islamic law has been identified as one of the multifaceted, complex and misunderstood law guiding the human conducts in the international systems. The Sharia law is complex because it is grossly over-generalized and understudied. Regretfully, the Islamic laws are often linked with a discriminatory and inhuman treatments having no respect for the human rights. The debate that remains unsolved is about whether Islamic law is compatible with the universal human right standards. Incompatibility between Islam and Human Rights The UDHR is recognized as the foundation… Continue Reading...

Globalisation and Business Cultures and Practices

Globalisation Led to a Convergence of Business Cultures and Practices? Globalisation, generally defined as the economic, political, and cultural convergence of the world, is undoubtedly a major hallmark of the modern world (French, 2010). The world has increasingly become interconnected in terms of economic activities, communication, technology, social aspects, as well as politics. Indeed, the once diversified and distanced world has converged into a small global village because of globalisation. Globalisation has led to the interdependence of not only politics and economic activities, but also culture (Grewal, 2008). Cultural convergence is now a widely-recognised phenomenon (Cojocaru, 2011). Owing to increased… Continue Reading...

Sentimental Journey Q1: How did you react to A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy, on its own, or in comparison to previous works on the course? (eg. I enjoyed reading...) I enjoyed reading Sterne's A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy and found it to be altogether very humorous. Yorick is the kind of person I sometimes imagine myself to be so I could very easily identify with him -- from his initial reaction to the monk begging for donations (Sterne 16) -- Yorick refuses and then instantly regrets being so discourteous to the monk -- to the way… Continue Reading...

Role Of Inclusive Leadership in Strengthening Organizational Culture

The trend of a global marketplace has given rise to needs for multinational companies. Literature on global business, HR development and management, social problems, etc. has, of late, greatly focused on the key subject of global leadership efficacy (Caligiuri & Tarique, 2012). Leadership represents a central element of every firm. However, leadership ability and function is increasing in complexity with enhanced engagement in technological development and globalization (Ulrich & Smallwood, 2012). People hailing from diverse cultures may have different ideas regarding, and expectations from, corporate leaders. Hence, this paper aims at determining an inclusive leadership approach's contribution to reinforcing corporate… Continue Reading...

From information collected using a number of investigation methods, law enforcement officials were able to procure a warrant which authorized attaching a GPS tracker to Jones' wife's Jeep (which was never driven by anyone but Jones). However, the law enforcers didn't adhere to the deadline stipulated in the warrant and attached the tracker after the deadline lapsed, employing it for tracking the Jeep's movements (United States v. Jones | Case Brief Summary). The satellite-guided tracker established the Jeep's whereabouts within 50-100 feet, conveying it to a governmental computer via cell phone and transmitting over two… Continue Reading...

California Vs Greenwood

of the Fourth Amendment. The case under review touched on the protections extended by the law in the 4th Amendment including the exclusionary limits. The question arises on what exactly the limit of an individual's privacy penumbra is. There is a question as to how an individual's trash content becomes public property. Is trash that has been removed from a person's house and prepared for collection property that can be subjected to public scrutiny? Does one's right to privacy extend all the way to the garbage dump? Should one expect privacy even after it has been exposed to public view… Continue Reading...

Religion Of Ancient Rome

The Roman people regarded themselves as highly religious. They linked their success as a powerful force in the world to their cordial relations with the gods. The victory by the Romans was essentially a religious occasion in which the generals exhibited their piety and zeal to serve society by dedicating a fraction of their fortunes to the gods. Jupiter was particularly called to attention in such circumstances because he was the god of justice in leadership. Following the Punic wars fought between 264 BC and 146 BC in which Rome fought hard to assert its power as a dominating authority,… Continue Reading...

Katz V United States

tap? The Supreme Court argued that Amendment IV’s privacy rights safeguard individuals, not places. According to prior case law, privacy rights would be violated only if tangible property was encroached on (Katz v. United States | Case Brief Summary). For instance, in the 1967 Warden v. Hayden case, the Supreme Court shunned its “trespass doctrine”. This doctrine maintained that governmental search-and-seizure authority was no longer regulated by property interests. The government argued that Katz utilized a payphone in a transparent booth – he was equally visible both inside and outside the booth. But the Supreme Court allowed that he… Continue Reading...

Supply and Demand

at any given price over a given period of time. The law of demand asserts that ceteris paribus the lower the price of a commodity, the greater the quantity demanded by the individual and vice versa. The inverse relationship between price and quantity is reflected in the negative slope of the demand curve as indicated above. An increase in the price of the commodity gives rise to the decrease in the level of demand. This can be perceived in the prices of gasoline in the 10 different gas stations. For instance, as the price increases from $1.82 to $1.89,… Continue Reading...

Even after the passing of the law, the activists still had to rally support to make sure that the required number of states (36) ratified the amendment for it to be adopted at the national level. Following this predicament, activism was increased in Tennessee[footnoteRef:16]. The notion that activists stepped down their efforts, at some point in the struggle because the success guaranteed, was unfounded. The point at which activism seemed to decelerate coincided with WWI. This was because all attention was focused on the war. [16: Ibid]… Continue Reading...

Justice Ethics and Political Philosophy Rawls

presented as an ethical goal. Religion and other sources of rigid moral codes have been common bases for law and order in non-democratic, non-secular societies. In constitutional democracies, individual differences are acknowledged and avowed but those differences do not preclude universal consideration based on humanitarian aims. Identity is connected more with personhood than with ethnicity, religion, or personal beliefs. To further clarify the essential nature and identity of people, Rawls distinguishes between private and public selves. The public self, the individual in the eye of the society, has access to and is deserving of fairness, justice, and equitable treatment under… Continue Reading...

What's challenging about the above explanation of life's meaning is: it is impossible to successfully oppose Tolstoy by raising the following arguments: 'How can we be sure of the presence of a Lord who has established for humanity a purpose in life?'

President Trump\'s First Day

President Trump Trump had a busy first day as President, with inaugural parties, oath of office and "big league" activities he planned under his first day's agenda, which would set his Presidency's tone. New presidents usually establish high goals for day 1, often with mixed outcomes ensuing (Shaw, 2017). Obama pledged, at his Presidency's commencement, to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility down. However, it still survives, although its internees have diminished greatly in number. Similarly, Trump's promises may differ from his end accomplishments. Amy Walter believes there was a consistent element in Trump's first day; his inaugural address corresponded… Continue Reading...

Civil society may make up a place for democratization, owing to its ability to enable individuals to decide on living their public life and resolving common issues.

The complainant in the Mapp v. Ohio case, DollreeMapp, was detained following a law enforcement search of her house to find an outlaw she was supposedly giving refuge to. After a number of entry refusals by the complainant, Cleveland’s Police Department apparently forged a warrant to inspect her home and forced their way into it. While they couldn’t find any outlaw hidden there, they did stumble upon lascivious and lewd material (books, to be precise) in the house (Mapp V Ohio - Cases | Laws.com). This discovery led to Mapp’s detention, though she wasn’t charged. Nevertheless, the complainant claimed… Continue Reading...

Short and Long Term Causes Of the American Revolution

The Short-Term Causes of the American Revolution Essayist Colin Bonwick writes that a short-term cause from the British perspective was the loss of revenue from taxes generated by American businesses and trading companies. And the short-term legislative measures by the British government were called the "Intolerable Acts" (Bonwick, 2002). More on the Intolerable Acts later on this page, but from the prospective of the colonists, their short-term causes included their rage at the " . . . indebtedness to rapacious British merchants and of navigations acts requiring them to trade through Britain" (Bonwick, 70). On the subject of the Intolerable… Continue Reading...

There are profound political, social, economic and religious implications to whether man should follow nature or follow order and law. The Greeks tended to view women as representative of physis -- emotional, strong-willed, passionate; while philosophers promoted nomos -- a way of life dedicated towards achieving the one, the good, the beautiful, the true. In modern times, philosophers like Rousseau and Nietzsche shifted society away from nomos towards physis and nomos… Continue Reading...

The Peloponnesian War

How do we know about this war? Thucydides may be counted among the foremost historians of the West to utilize a rigorous chronological standard. He recorded events based on their year of occurrence, and every year was divided into two seasons: a campaign-filled summer and a relatively inactive winter. The historian documented the Peloponnesian War in great detail. In spite of hailing from Athens and having taken part in the war, Thucydides is commonly believed to have provided an overall neutral narrative of it with regard to the parties involved. The foremost volume in Thucydides 'History of the Peloponnesian War… Continue Reading...

Cause Of Us Revolution

American Revolution There were a number of causes of the American Revolution, both short-term and long-term. The colonists were mainly of British descent, and so they had roughly the same culture as the ruling English, but over time there were enough differences and disagreements that ultimately would lead to the Revolutionary War. At the core of the disagreement was the economic status of the colonies and the people that lived in them. This was the primary long-run tension that led to the revolution. Great Britain was the world's most powerful nation at the time, and was in the process of… Continue Reading...

Therefore, using a systems perspective in addressing the needs of Lester would entail engaging his family and religious community to provide necessary resources and support.

Actually, his children should not be considered as a system that… Continue Reading...

Security Leader in a Military Organization

leadership may be appropriate in a technology organization, but may not be effective in a law enforcement organization. Equally, authoritarian leadership may work during normal periods, but may not work during periods of organizational change. In essence, situational leadership requires that leaders must be adaptive, flexible, and agile. The relevance of situational leadership within the context of military is immense. Military organizations exist in an ever more complex and ambiguous operational environment -- technological shifts, greater availability of information, increased downsizing, constantly changing security threats, increasingly complex battlefields, and so forth. These uncertainties mean that a single style of… Continue Reading...

Restorative Justice

an offense constitutes a violation of not only the law, but also individuals and relationships (Stamatakis & Vandeviver, 2013). Restorative justice, therefore, seeks to mend this violation. It provides an opportunity for the victim, the offender, and the community to talk about the offense and work together in finding some form of consensus about appropriate recompense. This process involves a number of important elements: voluntariness, one-on-one encounter in a secure setting (often outside typical criminal justice institutions), dialogue, openness and honesty, acceptance of responsibility on the part of the offender, and, most importantly, mutual satisfaction between the offender and… Continue Reading...

In accordance to Pearson and Simpson (2001), an auteur is delineated as a film director that generates a distinguishing and unique way to film creation by means of visual autograph and thematic and storyline constancy. The auteur theory was instigated in the 1950s in France by directors such as Francis Truffaut who promoted an emphasis on the input made by directors with respect to their style and type of film.

As Boozer points out, "the sexual seductress of Hollywood cinema has a long and varied international lineage" (20) -- meaning the type played by Stanwyck was not of strictly American genealogy.

Initial Public Safety Response Local law enforcement agencies, in conjunction with the Fire Department and emergency services, are usually the first responders to major incidents such as shooting incidents (TriData Division, 2014). In the event of such incidents, quick and well-coordinated response is crucial for saving victims, arresting the perpetrator, as well as effective management of the crisis (Bjelopera et al., 2013). For first responders, however, responding to emergencies is often a challenging undertaking, in large part, due to the lack of complete information about the incident. Broadly speaking, response… Continue Reading...

Nonetheless, operating in the global scene is usually not a straightforward undertaking.

One of the major complexities MNCs face relate to human resource management (HRM). Indeed, managing human resources in the international context can be a daunting task.

Book Strangers in Their Own Land

Strangers in Their Own Land, Arlie Hochschild presents what she calls the "great paradox" of American society: why ultra conservatives vote against their best interests. By almost all accounts, red states are poorer economically, have much poorer health and educational outcomes, and a lower quality of life overall than blue states. That being the case, why would the reds continue to vote for the same platforms, even going so far as to make their situation potentially worse by voting in Tea Party candidates or the likes of Trump? The answer, according to Hochschild, is that conservatives tend to vote for… Continue Reading...

Activity Based Costing

Activity-based costing (ABC) employs numerous cost groups, organized by activity, in the allocation of overhead costs. The conception is that activities are necessitated to generate products, basically activities, such as procuring materials, setting up machinery, assembling products, and scrutinizing finished products. It is imperative to note that these activities can be expenses and therefore the cost of activities ought to be apportioned to products on the basis of how the products use the activities. The costs are placed on the products on the basis of the use of individual products for every activity (Hansen et al., 2007). In the traditional… Continue Reading...

Unfortunate attempts at propagandizing through history curricula and pedagogy perpetuates a hegemonic narrative focused on the myth of American exceptionalism. Both Kupperman (2002) and VanSledright (2008) decry the "exceptionalist position" that many scholars and teachers have been effectively "forced" into based of laws like those in Florida and social pressures to never diverge from the common story (p. 104).

However, because Norway is a small country, with a small, fairly homogenous population, the police force operates in a decentralized way (Walgrave, 2003). The same goes for its investigative efforts. This means government agencies are not split into local, state, or federal, but act free from geographical or district limitations. England/Wales acts within the United Kingdom but has a tiered system for handling… Continue Reading...

Federalism and States Rights Regarding Drugs

Adler (2014) points out, "So many Republicans who believe it's federal overreach when federal law regulates health insurance or power plant emissions think its just fine when the federal government prohibits the possession of a plant, even where authorized under state law," (p. 1). The federal government has not fully clarified its position on the clash between states' rights and federalism regarding cannabis laws. However, the federal government has affirmed that it would defer to state law enforcement except in situations in which the drug is being transported for sale in another state (Baude, et al., 2014). In 2014,… Continue Reading...

Legalizing Sale Of Organs

a shortage of donors. This goes against the grain (not to mention the law) that is commonly in place. For example, selling an organ (at all) is an illegal act and encouraging any sort of payment or "donation" as part of a donor situation is also illegal. As seen with Da Silva in the earlier article, a major qualm that people have about people at large being able to sell organs is that the poor would be lining up in inordinate numbers to do so. A more high-level concern is that allowing the sales or organs would lead to… Continue Reading...

Informal and Formal Powers Of the President

laid out by the President. The President also has veto power. Congress passes bills, but they must be signed into law by the President. As such, the President has veto power over any law the Congress creates. For example, when Republicans repeatedly passed bills to repeal the Affordable Care Act, President Obama simply vetoed them. If Congress wishes to pass, change or abolish a law, it must do so with the approval of the President. As such, the President holds considerable influence over what laws will be passed, and what spending priorities will be reflected in those laws (Hudak, 2014).… Continue Reading...

Licensure and Discipline Of Nurses

Nursing Licensure Why is it important Every nursing practice has to be accompanied by rightful acceptance to be part of the nursing processes and activities in any society. The nursing licensure is a document that gives a right for the nursing activities to be done, not just for progression, but also for the same of improving life and health in any human setting. Certification is a necessity for any commercial activity today. Nursing is not exempted from such regulations. The licensure enables nursing to be seen as a professional body with credentials that must be met just like other professions.… Continue Reading...

Architecture in Columbus Ohio Churches

Street in Columbus, Ohio, the humbly named Broad Street Presbyterian Church was built in 1887, but has had several additional architectural elements added since then, including structural and functional spaces beyond the main apse and nave, ranging from a large north side parking area to the multiple annexes and entryways. The Broad Street Presbyterian Church occupies a relatively large footprint, spanning about four acres of urban land. On the south side of the street, the Broad Street Presbyterian Church receives an ample amount of sunlight throughout the day, which gleams and glows as it reflects on its flagstone finish. On… Continue Reading...

Parental Authority Hobbes and Locke

patriarchal society and government. "The social contract replaces the law of the father with impartial, public laws. However, the unconscious law remains patriarchal" (207).[footnoteRef:7] This suggests that socialisation dictates perceived responsibilities. Children for example, perceive the need to obey because they are at the mercy of their parents. Parental authority thus becomes a natural right to those like Locke because children cannot fend for themselves, and thus must rely on the parents. Overall, does socialisation dictate a person's responsibilities to others, in the bigger scheme, will social constructs define personal and interpersonal duties? [7: David Boucher and Paul Kelly,… Continue Reading...

Locke Vs Hume on Consent

to which man made the better argument. Political obligation, of course, is the general rule that the law must be obeyed. Consent, on the other hand, is much more nebulous in terms of definition and concept and that will be covered in this report. While both men have very informed and erudite opinions about the role of consent in political obligation, one of them clearly stands out from the other. Analysis Locke Locke's view on consent is pretty basic. Locke speaks to a symbiotic relationship between government and the people. The people consent to the government, their law and… Continue Reading...

Camden New Jersey and Corruption Exploitation

Camden, New Jersey is a city that symbolizes racial segregation and embodies the worst of American capitalism. In Camden, "poverty is a business," (Hedges and Sacco 88). George Norcross, aka "King George" -- is the de facto big man of Camden. Only, Norcross does not live in Camden, has no official elected position, and is white -- unlike the vast majority of Camden residents. Camden is not the typical white flight story, either. The history of Camden reveals potent trends in American urban geography, particularly the theme of how intersections between race, class, gender, and power entrench corruption in American… Continue Reading...

Fundamentalism and Evolution at the Scopes Trial

less about a teacher's violation of an arcane Southern law regarding the teaching of evolution in the classroom and more about the place of Christian culture, doctrine and ethics in the modern world. The trial came down to William Jennings Bryan (who had run for president a quarter century earlier) on the side of Christian culture and the atheist Clarence Darrow as Bryan's political, social and cultural antagonist. While ostensibly there to prosecute and defend John Scopes respectively, the spectacle that the trial quickly became revealed the underlying purpose of the courtroom scene: like the trials at Nuremberg that… Continue Reading...

Redskin Illegal or Racist

whether there are violations of Title VII, hate speech laws, etc. (Cox et al., 2017). Rule of law Even if the trademark office has yanked Redskin as a usable name, there is not a clear violation of the law and there is rampant disagreement about whether redskin is a racist term. It would seem to come down to political ideology versus an unwillingness to change the mascot on the part of Dan Snyder (owner of the Redskins) (Cox et al., 2017) Application of law Until or unless the use of "racist" terms and mascots is banned, it is unlikely that… Continue Reading...

Film Juno Analysis

Jason Reitman's 2007 film Juno addresses a difficult and potentially controversial topic: unwanted pregnancy and the challenges of deciding whether to terminate the pregnancy or carry it to term. Braha and Bryne describe Juno as a "comedy-drama," but it is also a young adult film because its protagonist is a teenager and because it frankly addresses coming-of-age issues linked to uniquely adolescent sexuality and gender identity. The film focuses on titular character Juno MacGuff (Ellen Page) and her decision to carry the pregnancy to term and give up the baby for adoption. Focusing on Juno empowers the protagonist and shows… Continue Reading...

The New Mobile Commerce Revolution

Home Goods M-Commerce During the earlier parts of the internet and technological revolution that began in the 1990's with the emergence of the World Wide Web was what eventually came to be known as E-Commerce. Indeed, there was the shift whereby what was done in brick and mortar stores was increasingly done online. Thus, regular commerce became electronic commerce, or e-commerce for short. Nowadays, there has been yet another shift to a subset of electronic commerce, that being on mobile devices like cellular phones, tablets and personal data assistants, or PDA's. Mobile commerce has become prominent enough that it should… Continue Reading...

Public Sector Performance Measurement

For the public sector, performance management is a valuable process. Organizations increasingly rely on performance data to make decisions relating to various organizational processes, including strategic planning, internal management, resource allocation, reporting, as well as monitoring and evaluation. This is what performance management is all about -- continuous measurement of performance, definition of performance objectives and outcomes, communication of the outcomes, and taking action based on those outcomes. As demonstrated by literature, implementing PBM can be viewed as implementing organizational change: it requires assessment of the status quo, defining the organization's desired future state, and undertaking action to achieve that… Continue Reading...

Temporary Reassignment, Scope Of Practice, and Patients Rights in Nursing

Patient rights are protected by law and it is the mandate of the nurse to ensure that they are upheld at all times. Observing these rights ensures that the nurses feel respected and appreciated, which raises their self-esteem a factor that contributes immensely towards the recovery process of the employees. Respect and dignity should be upheld at all time, which means that the nurse has to provide… Continue Reading...

Key Characteristics Of a Whistleblower

other stipulations that are directly pertinent to protection of whistleblowers. To begin with, the law necessitates that all publicly traded companies generate internal and autonomous audit committees. To a certain degree of the authorized audit committee function, these publicly traded companies are obligated to set up processes for employees to report whistleblower complaints, and practices which would safeguard the privacy of employees who report accusations with the audit committee (Kohn, 2004). Secondly, the Act lays out new ethical standards for advocates who practice before the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This regulation, in tandem with the execution of regulations… Continue Reading...

Miscarriage Of Justice in Gideon V Wainwright

to take up the case and represent Gideon based on the clear chances of success in repealing the law. The Supreme Court ruled in his favor and determined that he was entitled to a lawyer. The lasting impact is that everyone in America is entitled to a counsel regardless of the offense that he or she has committed. The aim is to ensure that justice is attained by providing the defendants with a good hearing (Owens et al., 45). A poorer defendant does not get the justice that he or she deserves based on the underrepresentation that is evident… Continue Reading...

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). Nooshin Erfani-Ghadimi claims that prisons in the nation are often overpopulated, thereby overburdening their ventilation, sanitation, and healthcare facilities. Single cells may be used to house three inmates while the communal cells that are meant to house forty inmates may be packed with twice that amount of inmates, forcing them to sleep in triple or double bunks (Smith-Spark, 2014).… Continue Reading...

Debt Versus Equity for Start Up

.....debt and equity has a number of different implications, including some significant tax implications. Debt is repaid from earnings prior to taxation, where equity payouts typically occur on an after-tax basis. This is because debt repayments take priority over the payment of dividends or even to stock buybacks or retained earnings. Debt capital is thus repaid before the company is taxed -- debt lowers taxable income. Thus, debt will also lower the total tax burden that the company faces (FindLaw, 2017). If the company opts for equity financing, it will face a higher tax burden. The taxable income will be… Continue Reading...

Healthy Meals Delivered to Elderly

An opportunity has been identified in a growing niche that has been largely untapped to date. The opportunity further can be described as being at a crossroads that exists where many factors come together in an intersection in which many social changes are present.

Impact Of the Rise and Spread Of Christianity

life. Constantine, in the year 325 CE, issued a law forbidding gladiatorial fights during peacetime. While the government continually attempted at regulating this sport and decreasing its dimensions, this was supposedly the earliest move to abolish it. Eusebius suggests that this decision of Constantine was perhaps influenced by Christ's teachings[footnoteRef:10]. However, one ought to bear in mind the fact that the initial fathers didn't criticize only gladiatorial fights, specifically, but public shows and theatrical performances, generally. In their opinion, the key offending factor was the materialism, immorality, and especially the paganism suggested by the performances, rather than the brutality… Continue Reading...

Trumpcare Vs Obamacare an Ill Advised Move

supports Obama and therefore voting for President Trump's bill into law would seem disloyal. These silent political wars are not in line with ethics because the main purpose of repealing ACA is not just to ensure citizens have access to appropriate services but also to prove a point. The idea is to show that the existing government is better than the previous ones. This kind of political competition ignores the rights of citizens (entitled to proper health care) while at the same time disregarding the ethical considerations of government officials. However, a leader has a responsibility of ensuring that… Continue Reading...

Causes and Consequences in American History

.....eras are too complex to reduce to a simple set of proximal causes and immediate effects. The main reason why historians disagree on critical issues like the causes of the American Civil War or the causes of the Great Depression is that there is no one cause or even one simple set of causes. It depends on point of view, theoretical viewpoint, and a host of issues related to the intersection between different causes. Historical knowledge also evolves as new facts emerge and new theories come to light. For example, Tyrrell argues that the United States was more connected to… Continue Reading...

American History During Early 20th Century

The progressive era in American political culture set the stage for President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. Starting in the 1890s, the Progressive Era drew upon Marxist theory of labor exploitation to help balance unbridled capitalist growth during the Gilded Age of industrial development. Progressivism welcomed social and technological progress both by suggesting reforms in both government and business to reduce corruption and ensure a higher quality of life for all Americans. Two of the progressive political party movements during the turn of the century included the Populist Party and the Bull Moose Party. Progressive values then later became embedded in… Continue Reading...

Philosophy Questions

central maxim of reality and presumed to be an undisputable, general, and essential law of reality. Nonetheless, Hume postulates that causation is not based on any sensible, a priori argument and that it is completely baseless. Hume makes the argument that there is no foundation in occurrence of one event succeeding essentially upon another and therefore causation or causality cannot be reasonably vindicated. In simple terms, no incongruity is encompassed in repudiating the presumed necessity of causality; however, a statement's repudiation is what demonstrates it as necessary, in case the repudiation gives rise to a noticeable incongruity (Hutchings, 1998).… Continue Reading...

Martha Stewart Omnimedia Corporate Governance Case Study

Martha Stewart Stewart's control of shareholder voting rights disrupted the functioning of the board because Stewart was able to exercise control over the board. She put her hairdresser on the board, and clashed with the board over her compensation.

In the Enron case, the macroenvironment and pesky things like law means little if those laws and regulations are irregularly enforced, for example, or if it is easy for executives to get away with white collar crimes as it was for Enron. The filmmakers do imply some degree of governmental collusion if not outright cover-ups to promote an unethical type of organizational culture in both the private and public sectors. Likewise, laws and regulations mean little when there are loopholes and other means by which executives can circumvent the law. An organization's culture is much… Continue Reading...

However, judges have skirted the law, and instead of offering life sentences, they are now offering long sentences without a chance of parole, which in a real sense is similar to a life sentence.

Before the introduction of POP, policing was mainly incident driven and reactive.

The model was not fully implemented until Scanning, Analysis, Response, and Assessment (SARA model) was… Continue Reading...

Should Audiences Be Quiet in the Theater

Jim Crow What I liked about this was the author's attempt to get at the spirit of Jim Crow by examining the work of T. D. Rice, known as Daddy Rice, the most famous "blackface" actor of the 19th century. It prompted questions in my mind, like, "Why did Rice think it would be a good idea to perform this way?" and, "What did his famous performances say about the audiences who watched them and their obvious demand for such entertainment?" Indeed, what I found most interesting was that Rice conceived Jim Crow in a way that was based on… Continue Reading...

The rule places the burden of proof on the defendant (The Insanity Defense Among the States, 2017). The rule gives the legislative authorities the freedom to choose between wrongfulness and criminality language options. Thus, the legislative bodies have the liberty to use more legalistic view of right… Continue Reading...

Retrieved 24 May 2017, from http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/10/us/18-charged-in-inquiry-into-los-angeles-sheriffs-office.html Per a single 2013 story, nearly twenty people were charged with offenses relating to misconduct and direct abuse of prisoners. I do agree with the general sentiment that jail should "feel" like punishment when it comes to restriction of freedom, activities and so forth. At the same time, prisoners should not be mistreated and assaulted just by virtue of being there. If they initiate a fight or otherwise engage in violence, they should indeed be subdued.

Young Drivers Speeding Intentions and Behaviors

within the first three years of obtaining their driving license.

The American Prohibition Era

less strict enforcement of Prohibition nationally. However, a loophole in the law allowed families in most states to make 200 gallons of 'fruit juice' or wine for their own personal consumption. In addition, national prohibition was largely unenforceable. Bootlegging, organized crime, and smuggling supplied alcohol to those who wanted it. (Engs 263) Because states and local counties were the ones that had to enforce prohibition, some states had stricter consequences for alcohol consumption and selling than others. For example, Arkansas at present day has 'dry' counties (35 of 75) where alcohol sales and consumption are illegal and has a statewide… Continue Reading...

Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility Csr

The activities of businesses affect different stakeholders within the communities they operate in. They affect customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers, financiers, regulatory authorities, and communities. Accordingly, in their pursuit of economic objectives, business organizations have a responsibility to satisfy the concerns of stakeholders affected by their operations. This is the core of corporate social responsibility (CSR). CSR theory asserts that business organizations exist for not only profit motives, but also social and environmental objectives (Schwartz, 2011). Indeed, CSR has become so that important governments in most countries around the world have enacted laws and regulations that businesses must adhere to so… Continue Reading...

Conflict Management

Whether at work, school, home, or in our own life, conflict is inevitable. We are bound to experience situations in which we are disappointed by or disagree with others. While some conflict situations end well, others turn out to be bad experiences. Personally, I have had a number of bad experiences with conflict. One situation that comes to mind occurred during my first job. At some point, my supervisor and I had a miscommunication regarding an assignment that involved a new client. The assignment turned out to be more complex than I anticipated. I requested for more time to work… Continue Reading...

Several upper class and middle class blacks lived and worked in the area with the town generating high black economic activity (Rogers, 2010). What began as a journey to Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa as servants, led the pioneering business owners to turn inward and produce their own society where most of the capital spent went back into the community.

Morality then and Now

deviance from that standard is not acceptable unless one is talking about common sense, or rule of law or something else like that. There is a minimum code that everyone should have to follow but there should be no oppression or force behind that other than what is necessary to instill basic justice and fairness. After all, using the rape victim example, society should go after and charge the rapist but not intimidate, jail or even kill the victim (e.g. honor killing). Being hands off about the whole situation would be wrong as well. It is true that societies… Continue Reading...

Understanding Voter Behavior Patterns

Campaigns (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2008), 74.] Popkin also discussed Gresham's law of Information, which posits that a small amount of personal information can drive out prior impersonal information (political information). President Trump had no real past political experience. Yet, because people know him as a successful businessman, that information erased his lack of political experience, and made him a viable candidate in the eyes of voters. This way of reasoning further distances the American citizen from the ideal citizen. Idealism marks many theories. Like performing an experiment, theories rely on ideal conditions to achieve a certain result. The… Continue Reading...

Attributed to Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu between 500 and 400 BCE, the teachings contained within the Tao de Ching have become collectively known as Taoism. The term "tao" or "dao" is usually translated straightforwardly as "the way," but the entire title of the text Tao de Ching may refer to a cluster of concepts including "the way of integrity" (Walter 1) or the "way and its power," ("Lao Tzu: The Father of Taoism," 1).

Why Music Matters and the History Of Slavery

.....music is important for "processes of personal and social integration," (1). This statement seems strange until we consider how music does affect our emotions, and also the way music plays a role in social settings. Therefore, music is more than just an abstract sonic art form. Music can serve symbolic roles, as in national anthems. Likewise, music can be used as a personal tool as when people wear headphones on the subway to create a sense of personal space and isolation. Music is also a social event, as when friends get together to form a band or when friends go… Continue Reading...

One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest by Ken Kesey

Ken Kesey's novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest offers an ironic portrayal of mental health and mental illness. The story of Randle McMurphy, told through the eyes and ears of Chief Bromden, shows how restrictive social norms and behavioral constraints are what cause mental illness. Mental illness and deviance are socially constructed. The men in the institution have been labeled as deviants, many of them as criminals too. Yet Kesey shows how the institution is the real problem, not mental illness. Nurse Ratched symbolizes oppression and social control, with Randle McMurphy as her foil. McMurphy is no angel, but… Continue Reading...

Patient Negligence and Nursing Malpractice

negligence have shaped how nurses view their career. The nurses fear to conflict with the law when they compromise with rights of the patients. Often, the high rates of patient readmission risk the reputations of the healthcare. Patient negligence is one of the malpractices in healthcare that call for discipline. In the past, negligence causes the loss of life and long procedure of lawsuit because of the death (Walsh, 2015). The existence of patient negligence and the laws that govern the rights of the patients help to promote discipline and accountability in the healthcare. The nurses are equipped with… Continue Reading...

Criminal Justice System Issues

to carry out daily responsibilities by themselves (Finkelhor, 2011). The criminal justice system responds to the victimization through law enforcement, arresting and prosecuting perpetrators, and encouraging reporting of such crimes. However, a holistic plan for offering restitution to child and elder abuse victims would help enhance effectiveness of the criminal justice system in dealing with the problem. A proposed restitution plan is for criminal justice professionals to ensure that perpetrators do not offer compensation for their crimes but instead pay for the kind of damages they cause on the child or senior adult. Week 5 -- Discussion 1 School… Continue Reading...

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… Continue Reading...

Reflection on Holistic Victim Restitution Plan

of policies that seek to lessen victimization and enforcing the law. Additionally, the administration of justice and law enforcement in the criminal justice system has involved prioritizing the safety of victims in order to help reduce crime victimization. This process has involved ensuring that criminals are punished for their crimes based on the law. While these approaches have helped in dealing with victimization, they are inadequate to resolve the increased vulnerabilities of individuals and groups to crime victimization. These approaches seemingly focus on protecting victims after the occurrence of a crime rather than before the crime is conducted. Therefore,… Continue Reading...

Classroom Observation

Introduction It is easy to assume that a comprehensive decision making theory gives a reliable basis for an observation scheme for a classroom. However, it is apparent that even though the practical and theoretical ventures overlap in many respects the core of the theoretical tenets are fundamentally variant. They are broader in some respects and narrow in others. The deterrents of real time implementation are significant and thus the scheme of analysis is fundamentally different from the theory frames that led to (Schoenfeld, 2013. At the onset, I believed that teaching was about spending 8 hours teaching and having a… Continue Reading...

Social Work and Political Advocacy

Social workers' involvement in political advocacy is usually influenced by the impact of politics on… Continue Reading...

World and Native Music

.....music?" is similar to the question "what is art?" As the author points out, talking about music is actually an ethnocentric activity because historically, most cultures did not think of their own music as "music," just as they might not have considered their art as "art." In the 21st century, most cultures are familiar with the concept of "music," as well as the concept of "art." However, music has historically been an extension of human culture and even religious activity and not viewed as being something that is distinct from religion and society. Even when musical traditions are deep, historical,… Continue Reading...

Marbury V Madison Impact

on the daily lives of American citizens In 1803, Marbury v. Madison made the US Constitution as the supreme law, affirming the authority of the Court over judicial review. The U.S. Supreme Court concluded that the federal courts are allowed to overturn the decisions of the other arms of government in the event that they act contrary to the Constitution (GROSSMAN). This is one of those "checks and balances" that are the core of the national government's function. In 1800, Thomas Jefferson, a Democratic-Republican, beat John Adams, a Federalist in becoming America's third president. Right before Adam's retirement, he introduced… Continue Reading...

Nursing Problems

The family members of the patients require the health records of their patients to arrange for better treatments.

Muslims As an Ethnicity in the United States

A small population by percentage (American-Muslims are only 1% of the U.S. population) (Besheer, 2016), Muslims nonetheless received the vast bulk of negative attention and backlash following the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. As an ethnic group, Muslims were well-connected both domestically and internationally -- and many Muslims reached out to the U.S. government post-9/11 in an effort to work with federal agencies to help address the issues arising from the climate of terror (Mantri, 2011).

No high-achieving nation tests every child, every year, in the way we're currently doing. They have much more intellectually ambitious assessments [or measuring not just memory but what students can do with knowledge]. -- Ed Finkel, 2010 As the epigraph above emphasizes, during an era when critical thinking skills have assumed new importance, young people's academic and professional careers are still being controlled by high-stakes standardized testing regimes and teachers are increasingly being held accountable for student performance. As a result, it is little wonder that there has been a growing tendency on the part of many educators to "teach… Continue Reading...

Questions About Police Community Relations

Describe how police-community relations originated as a separate operational concept. Surely because of the idea that the police nor the community acts in a vacuum. What the police do (or are perceived as doing) or are not doing (or perceived as not doing) affects the community. Similarly, what the community is or is not doing will affect how the police responds. As such, any community/police paradigm has to keep all of this in mind. For example, if a police officer shoots and kills someone that and that person is black, justified by the circumstances or not, there will almost certainly… Continue Reading...

other citizens. Was his decision correct? It is hard to decide whether the New Orleans law enforcer's choice was right or wrong. He took the action he felt was right. He admits his choice was made with little thought. But according to his official pledge as a police force member, neglecting his responsibility was a mistake. What penalties, if any, should he face? The law enforcers charged with abandoning their duty were classified on the basis of how far they transgressed. Officials who acted extremely egregiously received the sack whereas the remaining received a 4-month unpaid suspension. On the whole, 51… Continue Reading...

Instead of remembering law enforcement's public safety efforts, they remember the speeding tickets law enforcers impose on them. For instance, if policemen ended up saving one's life, this would greatly impact one's perception of them (Cubbage). When not on duty, the police feel alienated in society owing to the masses' present views regarding them. Their job isn't simple, but it has to be performed by somebody. law enforcement circles fare better in societies that hold… Continue Reading...

Community Policing and Justice

arguments. A discourse on its many connotations offers dynamic players on opposite sides of law enforcement lines a peaceful way to promote fairness via exchanges and interface. The requisite interface transcends the "no justice, no peace" principle. However, defining the term 'justice' would be a fine way to begin (Walton 10). State and federal level regulation safeguards citizens of the nation against abuse as well as other similar violations on the part of law enforcers and other governmental authorities. Police abuse victims may individually sue both policemen and the local governmental bodies employing those officials (Advice Company Staff 3).… Continue Reading...

Managing Reforming Drug Addicts and Ex Convicts

"Addicts Need Help. Jails Could Have the Answer." Article Response In this article, the author shows the desperation that many drug addicts have in their lives and the way addiction has destroyed the lives of the addicts. For a long time, conventional drug treatment has often been used as a means of helping the drug addicts to recover from the addiction. The method of treatment and recovery assumes that addicts come to a point when they seek help for recovery. Hover, this is impractical considering the addictive nature of the drugs. I like the article as it explores very pertinent… Continue Reading...

Concept Of Judicial Philosophy, Social Security, and Political Realism in the U.s.

that refers to the way judges understand and interpret the law in relation to the specific cases they are handling. This concept emerges from the fact that while laws are universal and broad, they need to be applied to specific cases based on the judge's understanding and interpretation of the law as well as the unique circumstances surrounding the case. The two most common judicial philosophies of the Supreme Court are judicial activism and judicial restraint, which have influenced various cases including Gore vs. Bush (2000) and Obergefell vs. Hodges (2015). Judicial activism refers to a philosophy in which… Continue Reading...

Anti-bullying Bill in Texas

of children’s rights (CAIR Texas, 2017). If enacted, the law would: a. Offer tools to educational institutions: This bill would authorize educational institutions to examine cases of bullying outside of school, develop a tip line that maintains anonymity, and enable greater educational institution latitude in penalizing pupils who engage in major cyber bullying (e.g., urging a child to kill him/herself). b. Reduce the number of victims: Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates reveal suicide to be the second main cause of adolescent deaths. c. Offer tools to law enforcers: law enforcers can, by means of summonses, increasingly expose anonymous… Continue Reading...

First Amendment and Broadcasting Content

First Amendment rights are not absolute, particularly in regards to advertising. For example, there has been a great deal of pressure to regulate advertising directed at children that promotes unhealthy junk food. "There is a legal test for judging whether commercial speech qualifies for protection under the First Amendment. Called the Central Hudson test, it says that such speech must be truthful and not 'actually or inherently misleading'" and it has been argued that much of commercial advertising targeting children takes advantage of a credulous consumer's inability to tell the difference between truth and fiction (Bittman, 2012, par.11). In this… Continue Reading...

The Birth Of Jazz in New Orleans

Still, Buddy's story is sad because he ended up going insane -- and his story reflects the larger story of New Orleans, a city that essentially has fallen apart. The whole soul of the city seems to be carrying this weight of sadness and I think Buddy was part of that for a period and helped to express it in a way that… Continue Reading...

Two Greatest and Two Worst Presidents in Us History

signing onto the bill may elevate prospects of the bill successfully being passed into law. However, the bill needs to first progress across every official procedural obstacle within both Houses prior to reaching the president and being enacted as a law. Following its introduction, the presiding official of each chamber refers the bill to the established committee with jurisdiction over the theme (e.g., homeland security or energy) (Sullivan, 2008). This is followed by a vote requiring the participation of all committee members to ascertain whether or not the bill is to be reported (i.e., sent forward for discussion in… Continue Reading...

Gun Fu and Hong Kong Cinema

not really revenge but rather justice. As Kit represents law and order, his sanctioning of the killing could indicate that it is blind justice being delivered at last. At the same time, Ho acknowledges that Kit must also arrest Ho, even if the charges against Ho are baseless (Ho is falsely accused of murdering the villain's father). Ho accepts the punishment that awaits him in a scene that resembles self-sacrifice, which echoes the sacrificial nature of Mark (who dies in an attempt to reconcile Ho and Kit) and the sacrificial nature of the Christian cross that is seen earlier… Continue Reading...

Polluter pays principle - the Polluter Pays Principle is a law which states that the polluter/polluting group is financially responsible for whatever damage they cause on the environment. Bringing it down to the sector of waste management, what this means is that any party which generates waste must be financially prepared to ensure their wastes are properly disposed (Johannes, 2006).

The new EVP has some of the same ideas as Bill but the time horizon for change is immediate rather than gradual. It would also seem that age discrimination might be at issue given the propensity for the new EVP to hire younger people with the attrition that is about to occur quite likely affecting older and more experienced workers much more significantly. While being ambitious and bold is typically a good thing, being… Continue Reading...

He believes that these laws can be changed and he does prove this by his accomplished creation of his monster. Nonetheless, though he attains a level and power reserved to God, his conduct shows that he has no form of experience, knowledge or responsibility like God does.

court ought to have considered that fact by the time it made the ruling. This application of the law that did not consider Miss Manning's special case has contributed to her frustrations and hence the attempted suicide. Moreover, the length of imprisonment in the sentence she received must have contributed in making Miss Manning desperate to the point of attempted suicide. In my opinion, the court has had a great influence on Miss Manning's frustrations and consequent suicide attempts. I think Miss Manning does not deserve a second prosecution because of the attempted suicide. Any person in her conditions… Continue Reading...

The Trouble with Innocence Article Analysis

made against Cook. Another distinctive lesson is that Cook was not treated fairly. In accordance to the law, one is innocent until proven guilty. In the same manner, it is said that justice delayed is justice denied. Cook is currently 60 years old and is yet to receive complete justice that is within his own civil right and liberty. Under no standard or benchmark was Kerry Cook treated with fairness and equity. Moreover, psychologist Landrum gave testimony asserting that Cook was an austere psychopath and a deviant pan sexual. In addition, he insisted that Cook was an enormously severe threat… Continue Reading...

Expanded economical and enhanced care alternatives Obamacare encompasses provisions ensuring ex-servicemen enjoy more alternatives to reasonable, superior-quality care. It enables VA healthcare beneficiaries to sign up for insurance plans via healthcare insurance exchanges as well. In case of moderate-income users, once again, the decision regarding moving from VA to a health insurance exchange plan may trigger expenditure-sharing comparisons (Boscarino et al., 2015). Servicemen suffering from non-service-related health problems, who thus pay steep VA co-payments, may find the latter more beneficial. iii.… Continue Reading...

Another risk that can be faced in the course of the merger is the vague and imprecise alignment with the corporate cultures of the firms. For instance, if one of the firms has a high performance organizational culture, then it is able to afford a stringent performance management practice and have a procedure of setting tough goal and objectives. The goals can be excessively difficult, but they have to be attainable. This can clash with merging with… Continue Reading...

Proposed Legislation in Nursing

How a Bill Becomes a law In Chapter 17, we learned that after a member of the Congress proposes a bill, it is gazetted and then passed through the three stages of reading before being becoming a law. The time required for a bill to pass through these stages varies depending on whether it is controversial or complex. In the first reading, the bill is introduced to the Congress, which signals that the legislative process has started. At this stage, there nothing much is done; the bill is just read out to… Continue Reading...

A succession of psychologist interviews clearly established that Kuklinski was both aggressive and unemotional. He did not show the mental and emotional stability typical of normal people. Indeed, he admitted to frequently feeling nothing when murdering people and simply experiencing curiosity regarding the extent he could go to. At the end of the interview sessions, he was diagnosed as having APD, which explains his overall… Continue Reading...

Norway and Germany Compared to Us in Incarceration

prison system is run like a concentration camp. In Norway, the approach to law and order is much different: there is no death penalty in Norway, no life sentences, no armed police. An interview with Norway's State Philosopher is also very revealing: he shows that the country is forward-looking instead of consumed with the present, with the here-and-now, with the Me Generation. Norway wants to conserve its resources (it will spend its surplus but preserve its capital) so that future generations will benefit -- and this mentality is also realized in the country's approach to corrections. Those who break… Continue Reading...

Hierarchy and Culture Reflection

The plumber shown out of the art museum because of his clothes and the public outcry that resulted (followed by the museum's defense) is one example of this conflict. 2 Because America is so different and so diverse with so many different people and ethnic communities, it is difficult to gauge its actual culture. It often seems, as the reading in Order, Hierarchy and Culture shows, that there are many… Continue Reading...

Social, Legal, and Ethical Issues in Marketing

There have been numerous sicknesses, deaths, and persistent disabilities associated to various energy drinks ( law Info, 2017). An additional legal issue surrounding the company and its products is marketing and advertisement. In particular, energy drink companies more often than not market their products with the proclamations that they boost and enhance psychological functioning, offering transitory boost to both mood and performance. Nonetheless, from a legal perspective, these companies face the risks of facing lawsuits from the general public and also other organizations because they rarely address the prospective longstanding effects that consuming their products may have (Richards and Smith,… Continue Reading...

Eugenics Movement

Organized Psychology’s Involvement in the Eugenics Movement The eugenics movement that began in the United States during the 1920s reached a brutal extreme with the Nazis’ experimentation with improving the racial stock of human beings through controlled breeding, and this movement would have significant implications well into the 21st century (Sutton, 2015). Many practitioners today, though, may be unaware of organized psychology’s role in contributing to the eugenics movement during the 20th century (Newhouse, 2016). To gain some new insights into this issue, this paper reviews the relevant primary and secondary literature concerning organized psychology’s long involvement in the eugenics… Continue Reading...

As a result, the increase in buyer power has fueled a number of the changes that have taken place in the legal industry in recent years (Smith, 2015). In this regard, Smith advises that, “Price sensitivity, discounting and alternative fee arrangements is the strongest evidence of the power of clients but it is accompanied by lower client loyalty and willingness to change firms,… Continue Reading...

To determine the validity of these criticisms, this paper provides a review of Case 1.1, “Made… Continue Reading...

The debate over the most appropriate responses to increased violence in American society has also extended to the nation’s schools.

reasoning through artificial intelligence may only be a matter of developing sufficient computer processing speed. Given that Moore’s law has largely held true since its formulation in 1965 and Church’s theory suggests that it is possible (Churchland & Churchland, 1990), it is certainly conceivable that within a few years artificial intelligence will have advanced to the point where human reasoning can be successfully simulated, and that these applications can “learn” over time and become even more proficient at this type of simulation. There has been some progress made in this area already, with artificial intelligence applications demonstrating “phenomenological equivalence”… Continue Reading...

Torture and Interrogation Essay

torture can be truly regarded as being effective. Despite the assertions by law enforcement authorities and the federal government that the coercive interrogation methods used on terrorist suspects have produced actionable information that prevented terrorist attacks at home and abroad, the fact remains that this information may have been available elsewhere and the use of torture to obtain it means that the practice cannot be regarded as being effective. For example, in response to the question of whether or not he thought ‘enhanced interrogation’ had saved lives former Vice President Dick Cheney told a CNN interviewer:  “I think those… Continue Reading...

Harlem Renaissance Poems

African-American culture flourished during the Harlem Renaissance. Although often characterized by and punctuated with the “double consciousness” of being both black and an American, the work of Harlem Renaissance writers and poets was variable and diverse. Countee Cullen is unique among Harlem Renaissance poets. Many of his works reflect the English poetic traditions, even more so than American or African-American ones. “Cullen considered the Anglo-American poetic heritage to belong as much to him as to any white American of his age,” (“Harlem Renaissance: American Literature and Art”). Implicit in Cullen’s poetic styles and formats was the belief in a blended… Continue Reading...

Change Framework to Lateral Violence in Nursing Practice

Introduction Lateral violence includes all acts of intimidation, humiliation bullying, unwarranted criticism and angry outbursts among other forms from a worker directed to another working (Clarke, 2014). In my current practice, most experienced nurses often feel superior to their inexperienced junior nurses. Therefore, they treat them with contempt as they feel they are more knowledgeable than them. For instance, one nurse may respond with an outburst on anyone enquiring of something that a colleague may have already have explained or considered it a too obvious. In some instances, one nurse may be disrespectful to others and refuse to engage another… Continue Reading...

The Challenges Of Legalizing Prostitution

The Acceptance of Prostitution in the US and Internationally Sex is a topic very controversial because many communities consider it as a taboo to discuss it in public. The situation even worsens when the money equation is involved. Perhaps, this explains why commercial sex is considered as an illegal activity. In the past decade, prostitution has been contested as policies, laws, and enforcement practices are repressive because of the ascendancy of interest groups committed to abolishing the whole sex industry. At the same time, some nations have decriminalized the act of prostitution. The book “Legalizing Prostitution” has been able to… Continue Reading...

U.s. Presidents 1789 to 1840

The presidents that served between 1789 and 1840 helped shape the nation during its formative years. During this critical period in American history, statesmen laid the foundations for political culture, philosophy, and institutions. Although all the presidents during this fifty-year period had some influence on the early republic, several left a more outstanding mark and legacy. As a Founding Father and author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson undoubtedly deserves recognition as one of the most important presidents in the entire history of the country. As a slave owner who believed in a small central government, Jefferson also set… Continue Reading...

Gaap and Ifrs Convergence Pros and Cons

they are – but this is where the role of culture comes into play. Securities law is the provenance of the SEC and it is easier for the SEC to adjudicate the financial system if its values and systems are aligned with the rules by which companies report their financial condition.

By allowing GAAP to remain, there will be no need to make… Continue Reading...

Gospel Of John Vs Synoptic Gospels

(Jn 15:6). It is upon this admonition that the law of the Church is established, meaning that there can be no salvation outside the Church, which Christ forms with His followers. What is it that holds this Church and Its members together? The answer is clear, as John shows: it is the Love of Christ that flows through them and unites them and keeps them as One. This is what truly sets John’s Gospel apart from the others: it is positioned squarely in this spiritual, mystical Love of God: “If you abide in me, and if my words abide… Continue Reading...

The Right to Privacy

population at large. The social contract that is reinforced by the government is for citizens to obey the law. So long as they do so, the government has measures to punish those who impinge on the law. In doing so it is effectively protecting those citizens who obey the law. Those who choose to obey the law should thus have the right to privacy. Again, if what they are doing in their private laws is infringing any sort of legal codes, then the government is at liberty to take action against them. But if they are not breaking any laws,… Continue Reading...

Kant and the Question Of Murder

in reconciling objectivity and subjectivity, and therefore any objective sense of moral law in universal terms, stems from his disposition towards a moral order that can be perceived by man through his use of the intellect—i.e., the combination of the five senses informing the mind of reality. In Prolegomena to any future metaphysics, Kant indicates that applying a universal label to anything is a mistake because all judgments are based on personal experience; he states: “I passed off as universally valid that which was a condition for the intuition of things…because I referred it to the things in themselves… Continue Reading...

Unfortunately, Obamacare has not promoted the ultimate goal of providing affordable healthcare for all Americans. Mandating healthcare insurance does help reduce disparities in access to affordable and necessary interventions, tests, and treatments. As idealistic as Obamacare is, the policy has not reduced the costs of healthcare but it does represent a step in the right direction towards distinguishing between the profit motive in… Continue Reading...

sign a false confession. Overall, more than 81% of participants ended up falsely confessing, with tremendous implications for law enforcement practice. This article ties in with the body of literature on psychological variables involved in false confessions. It can be used to better inform police policy and practice. Another feature of this article is that the authors differentiate between types of false confession. For example, Forrest, Wadkins & Larson (2006) refer to the role of real or imagined pressure laced during the interrogation, the fact that many people are trying to protect someone else by falsely confessing, and finally,… Continue Reading...

Prosecution Of Andrew Fastow

Thus, whenever that financial information was transacted via elements of the wire fraud law, that law was deliberately infringed. Wire fraud involves using federal communication devices for purposeful misrepresentations, including media such as telephones and email. The offender’s behavior that violated the law There were several things which Fastow did to repeatedly commit both wire fraud and securities fraud. Perhaps his actions to commit wire fraud were more pervasive than those to commit the former crime. One of the primary ways that Fastow committed wire fraud was by communicating with a number of banks to hide Enron’s mounting debt… Continue Reading...

Gold Smuggling and the Gold Black Market

Gold has had fans in many places since the dawn of civilization. From the pre-Columbian Americas to Greece, from China to India, gold has served as a symbol of status and also as a tangible means of accumulating and exchanging wealth. In a world in which speculation and virtual currencies reign, gold occupies a more unique position than it has ever before. In Wages of Crime, Naylor reveals the dark underbelly of the world’s most popular precious metal. The chapter “The Underworld of Gold” addresses everything from how gold is mined nefariously in both black and grey market ways, and… Continue Reading...

The Role Of Sarbanes Oxley Act in Curbing Corporate Fraud

owned companies. Consequently, reviews of private firms are not covered under the law. This subjects them to inspection by the board but excluded from disciplinary action in this regard. The segregation between private and public companies is unnecessary since when fraud happens in business, its nature is always notwithstanding (Young, 2013). As such, it is important to design an equivalent process for both private and public companies with similar standards. While SOX has made significant strides in improving corporate focus on a healthy ethical culture in publicly owned businesses, so much more can be done to integrate private companies… Continue Reading...

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

organizing their country into a liberal world where states are law regulated (Carothers, 1997). The sanguine nature of Kant concerning the prospects of peace looks at the ultimate goal for nations is an unachievable idea. Human beings are naturally antagonistic. Their existence in intelligible and sensuous worlds predisposes them to engage in wars to prove their might. However, they should apply the laws of reason, but it should be noted that the reason in question is not common to all humans. Therefore, some people may choose to disobey the law to the detriment of invoking war, and this confirms… Continue Reading...

Why Parents Should Be Liable for Their Children\'s Bullying

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

Super Size Me Documentary Review

Super Size Me is a documentary film from 2004 by Morgan Spurlock. It focuses on what it would be like to consume nothing but McDonald’s fast food for an entire month. That is the outlandish premise of the film—and it is more than likely to appeal to two types of people: 1) the health-nutritionist type of person who will approach the film with type of confirmation bias, expecting his or her point of view about how bad for one’s health fast food is to be fully validated, and 2) the extreme spectator type of individual—i.e., a person who is interested… Continue Reading...

Strategic Management and Its Influence on Stakeholders

of effective strategic management. Strategic management is particularly important within the context of law enforcement. law enforcement organizations must have a specified vision and mission as well as goals and objectives. For a police department, the goals and objectives must be informed by both internal and external factors, such as available financial resources and personnel, crime rates, and socio-cultural setup. During strategic planning, the department must, for example, consider whether it has the resources and personnel needed to respond to crime, prevent crime, and to enhance public safety. An important aspect of strategic management relates to stakeholder involvement. As… Continue Reading...

In this case, the tool enables the organization to compare its performance with… Continue Reading...

Public Funding and the Police

law Enforcement and the Budget The most important stakeholders in the public finance of law enforcement organizations are the tax payers. Without taxes collected, the government could not afford to fund organizations. Municipal taxes, bonds, grants and more all go to fund law enforcement organizations. State and local taxes pay salaries and pensions for retiring officers, and yet still many municipal, state and federal level law enforcement agencies are required to borrow in order to meet structural requirements. Many cities run a continual budgetary deficit,… Continue Reading...

Criminal psychology is not just about theories of personality and motivations for crime, but about how psychology can help law enforcement prevent crimes by using more effective profiling. Profiling can also help officers to improve their interviewing techniques. This book is also helpful because of the way it discusses the different profiling methods and the empirical research used to justify them. Continue Reading...

Sexual Assault and Legal Standards

According to Pennsylvania law, rape may occur either by “forcible compulsion” or the threat of forcible compulsion which “would prevent resistance by a person of reasonable resolution” (“Commonwealth v. Berkowitz”). The Pennsylvania court interpreted this wording as meaning that direct, extrinsic force or the threat of such force was required for an act to constitute sexual assault. Q2. LIST all the facts relevant to deciding whether Roberts Berkowitz’s actions satisfy the extrinsic force requirement. Berkowitz pushed the victim down on his bed, straddled… Continue Reading...

Reforms Needed for Three Strikes Law

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 v. California”, 2017). There is also the concern that some people are being thrown in jail even though they will soon “age out”… Continue Reading...

Natural World My awareness of the natural world began early on. I remember the seasons and in particular my first experience with snow. It was a winter when I was 5 or 6. I recall seeing snow and going out and playing in it in the yard with my family. We made snowmen and snowballs and went sled riding. I developed a love of nature and the way it could change and send you something wonderful out of nowhere. However, that same season, I remember the roads being terrible because of all the snow, and it was my first experience… Continue Reading...

The Influence Of William Shakespeare and Robert Burns

Introduction William Shakespeare and Robert Burns are both iconic figures in the UK. Also known as the Bard of Avon, Shakespeare is often regarded as England’s national poet. Shakespeare is also considered the world’s greatest English writer and dramatist. During his time, Shakespeare authored tens of plays, over a hundred sonnets, and several narrative poems and verses (Marche, 2012). Shakespeare’s work has been translated into virtually all major languages of the world. Also, his work is performed more regularly than any other work. Robert Burns, born close to one and a half centuries after the death of Shakespeare, was also… Continue Reading...

Judges Code Of Conduct Improvement Strategies

of appointing judges. The American Constitution has provided recourse for a judge who violates the constitution and the rule of law. For instance, a person who fails to obtain justice from a court of law has the right to seek redress at the Court of Appeal and ultimately at the Supreme Court. This systematic system enables one to seek equality when he or she feels that the lower court has violated the provisions of the constitution and the existing law (Sharpe, 2010). Secondly, judges who violate the provisions of the constitution in their judgment and overall conduct must face prosecution.… Continue Reading...

Preaching the Bible to a Modern Audience

The prophetic text of Ezekiel offers important clues to the meaning of the ministry of Jesus. Ezekiel presents one of the central metaphors that Jesus would later use, particularly that of the shepherd leading the flock of the righteous to salvation. Ezekiel discusses the role of the shepherd in two different ways. First, the shepherd is responsible for searching for flock that has scattered or for flock in need of rescue. “I look after my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered on a day of clouds and darkness,” (Ezekiel 34:12). Second, Ezekiel refers… Continue Reading...

The British government and its political culture are not bereft of formal documents, either. Tracing its heritage to groundbreaking documents like the Magna Carta of 1215 Magna Carta and the 1689 Bill of Rights, the British parliamentary system remains a model of liberal democracy around the world. Also… Continue Reading...

The Gospel Of Matthew and Anti Semitism

covenant model, also known as supersessionism. Supersessionism refers to the Christian belief that Christ rendered Jewish law, custom, and tradition as irrelevant and even sacrilegious. Christ’s Church superseded the Jewish religion. Therefore, denying Christ is effectively denying God, from Matthew’s point of view. In this sense, Matthew is more evangelical and radical than he is specifically anti-Semitic. Yet Matthew does direct his wrath towards the Jewish religion and the social and political structures that defined it in his time. Matthew’s audience would have responded in different ways, depending on their backgrounds. For those who followed Christ, they would have… Continue Reading...

Leadership philosophy denotes the values, beliefs, and principles that define or influence how a leader leads their followers. There are many different leadership philosophies, but one philosophy that particularly resonates with the author’s leadership philosophy is servant leadership.

As demonstrated in this paper, servant leadership is a leadership philosophy that is applicable at the workplace as well as in one’s personal life. Servant leadership is crucial for building strong relationships, trust, respect, and collaboration between the leader and their followers. In spite of some shortcomings, servant leadership –… Continue Reading...

Retrieved from: https://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/26/opinion/linda-greenhouse- the-supreme-court-justices-have-cellphones-too.html This article suggests that while the US Supreme Court justices are sworn to uphold the law, their own personal biases and experiences may influence them.

Virginity Definition and Differences in Cultures

The textbook definition of virginity presumes a guy is no longer a virgin once he has inserted his penis into a woman's vagina and ejaculates or a woman is no longer a virgin once they have taken a man's penis inside their vagina, which results in the breaking of the hymen (Bearman & Brückner, 2015). This definition is flawed in that it presumes that we live in a perfect society where sex only takes place between men and women. However, we have lesbians and gays and the also have sex, which means that they would be virgins even if they… Continue Reading...

Antwone Fisher

The heart-rending autobiographical, Antwone Fisher, portrays Fisher’s (who is the movie’s scriptwriter) obsession for a family life, and spells of extreme melancholy and loneliness. The character of Antwone Fisher, an African-American sailor, is portrayed as volatile and uncontrollable. This nature makes way for compulsory psychiatric sessions with Dr. Davenport, after Fisher has a violent spell, leaving a peer bearing the brunt of his temper. Initially, Fisher doesn’t cooperate and remains silent for several weeks; the two clash. According to naval rules, three therapeutic sessions are imperative, beginning from when the client starts speaking. However, ultimately, the real reasons underlying Fisher’s… Continue Reading...

Yet actions do beget reactions. Inaction is a type of action. 3. In Chapter 3, Arjuna asks Krishna again why fighting would be an appropriate action. This is where Krishna explains in more detail about karma. Arjuna has been taught to be passive, and that fighting is wrong because it could lead to killing. Yet Krishna also teaches him that each person also has a sacred… Continue Reading...

That is why he is going to jail. And while I am sorry for his time that he will have to serve… Continue Reading...

Trends in Healthcare Management Industry

In the recent years, trends have emerged in the healthcare management industry, which includes patient protection, social media in healthcare, and drug shortages. Patient protection has largely been influenced by laws and policies in different nations. In the United States, the enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has resulted in the lowering of overall healthcare costs, whereby millions of individuals have access to insurance, thereby guaranteeing free preventative care. Social media in healthcare has stemmed from the increased use and adoption of the technology for health-related reasons by patients as well as healthcare practitioners.

Law Enforcement Abuses in Investigations

Times This article is disturbing because it represents what appears to be a clear case of law enforcement officers disregarding evidence because it does not fit their narrative of what happened at a crime scene. The defense lawyers clearly have a good case on their side (which is no doubt why the first trial ended in a mistrial). The prosecution’s side is weak and does not explain motive or the evidence that the defense says was left at the home—such as the missing hair, the bent fireplace tools, and the gashes in the wall. The defense also has offered a… Continue Reading...

Self Defense Laws and Castle Doctrine

like England do should have no bearing on American law. Gun proliferation is already a problem in the United States, and the Castle Doctrine in no way contributes to a culture of violence. If anything, stand your ground laws may discourage would-be perpetrators from inciting or provoking use of force. For example, a person who is about to commit a mugging or robbery might think twice if they believe their intended victim could be carrying a deadly weapon that they are fully prepared to wield. Use of force in self-defense is both a Constitutional right and an affirmation of… Continue Reading...

He also came to the attention of the Florida Department of Children and Families” (Murphy Cautious after Parkland Shooting, 2018, p. A4).

Europe and the Modern Era

The European Historical Perspective, Social Issues and Educational Issues The European historical perspective has changed from era to era. Europe, which is often called The West, had its foundations laid by the classical philosophers—Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle—who defined the concept of the Transcendentals and gave future generations the ideas of what it meant to live a good and happy life. These philosophers were Greek, but many nations for centuries after their deaths pondered their thoughts on education, on social issues and on life itself. The Romans, the Jews, the Christians (who later led Europe for more than a millennium) all… Continue Reading...

Taken together, these two documents from FEMA serve as a helpful framework for measuring the adequacy of the State of Florida’s Terrorism Incident Response Index. Firstly, Florida’s Annex is structured and displays a systematic and coordinated approach to assessing the situation and embarking on a procedure to address the situation—so it fits in line with FEMA’s (2004) recommendations for being systematic, structured and coordinated. It details the Response Process by breaking it down… Continue Reading...

I grew up on the edge of the city. It's hard to imagine today, but across the road was all farmland. Our block was the last one with houses, at least for a few years. But those were the years when I was first allowed to go out exploring. There was this large pond. It's a church now, but when I was little it was a pond, and my brother Martin and I would go down there to catch tadpoles. He showed me how to catch them, and once I got the hang of it, I think I must have… Continue Reading...

Political Science

that is not the case as most Congress members, from what is really known, do not break the law. Even so, some members of Congress (current or former) seem to break (or bend) the law without being prosecuted. One example that many would cite is Hillary Clinton. To be fair, there are plenty of Republicans that are charged with similar crimes, if not worse. The current eruption of sexual harassment and assault charges is a good example. Both Republicans and Democrats are being ensnared by such accusations. Just a few names of candidates or current elected officials include Al… 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...

Reflection and Research Essay on Augustine: Saint Augustine on Evil

Origin of Evil The origin of evil has been a controversial issue not only in the contemporary Christian circles but also among the ancient Greek Christians. The point of contention in the discussion about the origin of evil is why a good God would have created evil. The Judeo-Christians struggled to understand how a good, powerful, and all-knowing God could allow evil to exist. The logical conclusions were that either God did not exist or God was not good[footnoteRef:1]. However, Augustine sought to clarify this erroneous notion about the existence of God.

Information technology specialists will help our department retain strong communications connections with law enforcement, hospitals, emergency medical technicians, and other first responders. Also, the information technology will help our own first responders more efficiently respond to fire and other disaster calls, deploying exactly the service personnel and equipment necessary. In a suburban fire department such as this, links with other departments will be crucial. When determining the organization’s needs, we need to consult with other leaders in the community. Training technicians and training specialists need to be available at all time, both for training new personnel and also for… Continue Reading...

A Historical Comparison Of Christianity and Buddhism

both Christianity and Buddhism, exemplifies the ways that religion, politics, and the law have always been fused. Each sect of Buddhism will have its own religious or spiritual leaders, who often serve in de facto political positions like the Dalai Lama, just as various branches of Christianity have their religious leaders who serve in quasi-political roles like the Pope. Buddhism is more a philosophy and system of practice than it is a religion, as it is absent of any reference to a deity. Unlike Christianity, Buddhism is more about personal practice, the nature of consciousness, and improving the human… Continue Reading...

Thematic Analysis the Things They Carried and Slaughterhouse Five

set up for the optometry business having been funded by his father in law where he succeeds. Analysis Despite the differences in "The Things They Carried" and "Slaughterhouse Five,” the stories seem to point to several similar themes. For instance, both books point to the theme of the destructiveness of war for the soldiers involved. It is often assumed the soldiers who engage in war are well prepared both physically and psychologically for the effects of such war. However, this apparent preparedness does not immune the soldiers to the aftermath war experience. Most soldiers suffer the effect of the… Continue Reading...

Patient and Affordable Care Act

the Patient and Affordable Care Act were enacted into law. It is worth noting that one person in particular (my neighbor) was in perfect health, had no pre-existing conditions, and had not even utilized his health care plan the previous year. Yet, because of the full implementation of the Affordable Care Act, his insurance premiums tripled. Point One: The primary reason the Patient and Affordable Care Act should be repealed is because it functions as a justification for insurance companies to exorbitantly raise their insurance premiums (Wahowiak, 2015, p. 2). There was a point in time in which only… Continue Reading...

Religion in Plato Euthyphro

Even in a secular society like ours, it is important to conceptualize a set of universal values that can be codified in doctrines of human rights and freedoms. These universal human values and ethics can therefore undergird social norms and laws, preventing recourse to superstition and religion as excuses for human rights abuses. As modern society shifts towards a new moral order based on secular values rather than on religious doctrine, the concept of piety as it is elucidated in Plato’s Euthyphro is the most important concept to be integrated into the Socratic Citizenship Initiative. In Plato’s Euthyphro, both Socrates… Continue Reading...

Bin Laden Al Qaeda Financing Crime

R.T. Naylor has a unique, and some might say even rogue, interpretation of bin Laden and al Qaeda. While Naylor spends the entire Wages of Crime focusing on the flows of black market and blood money, he does so within a morally relativist framework. Chapter Seven of Wages of Crime is an addendum, new to the most recent edition of the book that was originally published prior to September 11. Responding to the pressing push to apply the economist’s approach to terrorist financing, Naylor understandably adds this chapter as part of his ongoing narrative on the wages of crime. Given… Continue Reading...

Abortion and Ethics

be supported—which means that a woman should not choose to have an abortion because this violates moral law. What is abortion? Abortion is the deliberate termination of life in the womb. Life begins at conception, with the fertilization of the egg. Cells begin dividing and growing rapidly: a new human life is developing. Women’s rights advocates attempt to get around the fact that a new human life is developing by referring to the child at his stage as a fetus and compartmentalizing its development into stages: in the early stages, it is just a fetus and not yet a… Continue Reading...

Waist to Hip Ratio Article Review

Introduction The following paper is a review on an article titled “Men’s ratings of female attractiveness are influenced more by changes in female waist size compared with changes in hip size” by Malgorzata Rozmus-Wrzesinska and Boguslaw Pawlowski. The purpose of the review is to analyze the aspect of waist to hip ratio in females. Article Summary In line with the study undertaken by the authors, researchers have observed a negative correlation between the attractiveness of women and their waist-to-hip ratio. Nonetheless, two elements of the waist-to-hip ratio have dissimilar indications for a prospective mate. On the one hand, size of… Continue Reading...

How Important Is the Idea Of Equality to Each Theorist

one side, nor disability on the other (pg. 388-389).” Mill witnessed an age in which cultures and even the law supported and mandated female subordination. Marriage, child-rearing and domestic tasks were meant to be their sole focus. They were largely denied the ability to request divorce from a bad marriage, formal education, wealth/property ownership, voting rights, jury or business involvement, or solo travelling rights. Their husbands were considered their masters to all intents and purposes. “The adoption of this system of inequality never was the result of deliberation, or forethought, or any social ideas, or any notion whatever of what… Continue Reading...

and demonstrating his own laxity when it comes to governance and instilling the rule of law. Instead of standing up to the families, he lets them off with a warning. Yet by going easy on them all this time, he is showing a dangerous passive-aggressive streak, so that when death does occur (Mercutio killed by Tybalt and then Tybalt killed by Romeo), the Prince refuses to hear any talk of peace or mercy. He goes from being soft, soft, soft to being hard and cruel—which only further exacerbates the problems and the tension. Of course, the fathers of the… Continue Reading...

Precisely, the information filed in the bankruptcy court of law, recognized that the issues took place when ALF had stemmed out as an independent firm from its parent company Freightliner, its prior owner. Of the transition, ALF outsourced manufacturing, payroll, inventory, and accounting process services to its prior owner. As component of the transition, ALF created a separate ERP system to give support to the company subsequent to the separation from Freightliner (Bhagwani, 2009). Regardless of the excessive complications experienced by ALF, they made an effort to figure out… Continue Reading...

Akin to law enforcement and financial organizations, all news companies expect and believe that their workers abide by key journalism rules. The investigation into the Jayson Blair case revealed repeated violations of the core journalism doctrine, which is merely to state the truth under all circumstances. Blair blurred his actual location using his laptop and mobile phone as instruments of deception, in addition to 24-hour access to news databases (para3). Blair’s article ‘A NATION AT WAR: RECUPERATION; Former P.O.W. Returns Home For Treatment at Army Hospital’ states that “as… Continue Reading...

Obama’s First Year in Office

had signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act into law. This stimulus package was designed to help get companies producing again, help get them hiring again, and help American consumers to start consuming again. Whether one opposed the stimulus plan or embraced it, the fact is that Obama got the stimulus signed and into effect in relatively short order. This was, therefore, a major and early success for Obama. Obama continued his run of success by signing into law within his first 100 days in office the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Play Act, which lengthened the time in which individuals… Continue Reading...

History Of Immigration in United States

American immigration policy and population patterns have changed in response to labor demands and economic forces, as well as shifts in American identity and social norms. Global forces have also shaped immigration patterns over the past hundred years. Anti-immigration sentiments have also strongly influenced immigration policies, with the most notable examples from a century ago being the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 and the Nativist movement of the 1920s (Young 1). Similar Nativist sentiments bubbled to the surface during the Trump administration, clouding constructive discourse on the role and status of immigrants in the United States, and the fundamental functions… Continue Reading...

Michigan Community Child Watch Programs

crime. Administered as a joint effort by school districts and local law enforcement agencies, the Community Child Watch Program owes its long-running success to volunteers that are trained to recognize, observe, report, and record any suspicious persons and activities. Every trained volunteer gains a handbook for reference and a poster to display on their door or window to show he or she has completed the program and is informed on what steps are needed to prevent crime regarding minors. Window posters have acted to deter would-be criminals like child molesters, but has also deterred overall crime. The more posters… Continue Reading...

Fracking Policy Analysis

1) More organized, sustained scientific research; 2) taking into account a more robust federal or state law; 3) reviewing hydrocarbons’ (including methane’s) likely impacts on health if they enter drinking water supplies; and 4) industry- specific strategies for the development of securer, more consistent techniques of extraction. 2. Introduction Fracking or hydraulic fracturing constitutes a major issue plaguing America’s energy industry over the last ten years (Clark et al., 2012). It may be described as a way to increase natural gas and oil well production by opening or breaking rock formations through the utilization of high- pressure fluid injections… Continue Reading...

Proposed Immigration Bill

Introduction A lot gets lost in the current debates over immigration in the United States. When we regurgitate what we hear on the news or on Facebook, we fail to think deeply or critically about the issues. This nation is a settler nation; of that there is no doubt. European settlers displaced, forcibly removed, betrayed, and in many cases killed indigenous people whose land this was for centuries before. Those same Europeans cultivated a sense of entitlement to these lands, pushing farther and farther west until they hit yet another ocean. And they did not even stop there. They pressed… Continue Reading...

Friedman pointed out specifically that business had to operate within the bounds of the law: “to make as much money as possible while con­forming to the basic rules of the society, both those embodied in law and those embodied in ethical custom” (Friedman, 1970). Thus, the shareholder argument not only dictates that businesses uphold the law in pursuit of profits, but also ethical custom. The stakeholder argument holds that businesses impact a number of different stakeholders, and therefore should take the needs of those different stakeholder groups into account – workers, the environment, and others… Continue Reading...

The Trump Travel Ban

government did this to maintain ‘stability’ in the American economy. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 demonstrated the first major law that restricted immigration into the country. Those living in the West Coast saw the Chinese workers as direct competitors and attributed economic ills and declining wages to their immigration. The act placated worker demands and allowed satisfaction for those wishing to maintain white ‘racial purity’. (Gyory) The motives behind the exclusion were deeply seeded in racism and demonstrates the ugly side of the American government. The same was done to the Japanese in WWI, but not for the idea… Continue Reading...

School Crime Prevention Programs

this would be inaccurate on two levels. First, drug use is generally against the law. Second, people that engage in drug use commonly engage in one or more other crimes. One example would be people that steal to support their habit. The dealing of drugs and trafficking are other behaviors that are clearly illegal and that relate to drugs. As such, educating children to stay from the use or other exposure to drugs is obviously a good idea. The pros of the program is that it has a strong foundation in reality and the facets of the program are… Continue Reading...

The Trump Travel Ban

Not many things in recent history have brought as much controversy as the Trump Administration travel ban. Some have seen this ban as unfair and demonstrating the ugly side of the United States and its Government. There are reasons for this. The travel ban is cruel and inhumane, the Government should not support a travel ban because no one should be profiled due to race or religion, travel is a human right, and the U.S. is a safe place for refugees. The travel ban provides much cause for concern because of the potential legality of such an extreme measure. Half… Continue Reading...

Universal Religions and the History Of the World

Universal religions have grandiose political and social schemes. Unlike smaller-scale spiritual faiths, universal religions are those that seek to expand their locus of power and control over larger areas, such as through proselytizing or linking with political rulers. Universal religions also extended deeper into more areas of individual, family and community lives. For example, universal religions propagated specific social norms, morals, and ethics, and became one of the fundamental means of establishing laws. Universal religions also became linked with culture and ethnicity, providing a means by which people forged collective and individual identities. Yet unlike ancient religions, universal religions did… Continue Reading...

salvation. Ultimately, Hugo shows the reader how formal systems of justice and institutions of law and order cannot accurately determine moral polarities; the human heart is far too complex. Using imagery of light and darkness, Hugo shows that most of life manifests in various shades of grey. The Bishop is the first major symbol of light in Les Miserables, and is an overt representative of religious fortitude and spiritual salvation. “He gazed incessantly beyond this world through these fatal breaches, and beheld only darkness. The Bishop made him see light,” (Chapter 4). This line directly shows how Jean “beheld… Continue Reading...

The Ethical Issues Of Criminal Justice

due to factors such as wrong identity and selective application of law is alarming. There is an urgent need to improve the criminal justice system with an objective of alleviating wrongful convictions and enhancing the innocence program. This will minimize the chances of convictions and subversion of justice for convicts. Political ramifications Criminal justice system: it is said that it’s better to allow 100 guilty suspects to go free than to have an innocent man convicted. From a political stand point the criminal justice system works when criminals are convicted. The ethical dilemma in this context is the likelihood… Continue Reading...

Deepak Chopra Book Path Of Love

The Path to Love encapsulates Deepak Chopra’s self-help philosophy, although it is focused specifically on the concept of love. “In spirit you are unbounded by time and space, untouched by experience. In spirit you are true love,” (Chopra 2). The book is about different types of love, including self-love, but also romance and familial love. Although the book comes across as being new age fluff, it is nevertheless useful in engaging the reader and inspiring a positive mindset. The author does a good job of linking together various types of love, starting with the fundamental features of universal and self-love,… Continue Reading...

International Trade and Nafta

Reflection Paper – International Trade There has been a lot of talk lately about NAFTA being put at risk – either the US wanting to pull out of the deal or to significantly re-negotiate its terms. Industries that either benefit from NAFTA or feel that they do not benefit are lining up to express their positions – the latest being the auto industry, which has generally benefited significantly from NAFTA's country of origin rules (Shepardson, 2018). This discussion makes one reflect on the objectives of trade policy in general. The entire point of trade policy is to expand the economy… Continue Reading...

Religion the Theology and Teachings Of Paul

out, faith and grace were not absent from Jewish theology and worldview. The fact that adherence to the law, merit, and works were all part of Jewish custom and tradition did not preclude the importance of faith in solidifying the covenant between God and His people. Second, there is a panoply of modern interpretations of Paul. Some modern interpretations can be contradictory. For instance, some have suggested that Paul believed there were two separate covenants, one for Jews and one for Gentiles (Scholz, 2013, p. 25). Third, it is important to treat all Pauline letters with equal weight rather… Continue Reading...

Characteristics Of an Effective Nurse Administrator

Introduction A philosophy of caring and compassion is necessary but not sufficient for effective nurse administration. Nurse administrators assume additional duties and responsibilities when they manage health care facilities. In addition to understanding the regulations affecting day to day operations, nurse administrators need to have a firm command of financial management and human resources management expertise. Nurse administrators also need to know about how to form strategic alliances with partners in the community, government, and private sector. Essentially, nurse administrators tend to be relatively far removed from the job of actual nursing and provision of care, while also keeping in… Continue Reading...

The above section to be invoked by the chief of the hospital does not change any rights of guardianship.… Continue Reading...

Police Brutality and Behaviorism

brutality is an ethical problem because it constitutes abuse of power, and also leads to mistrust of law enforcement. Mistrust of law enforcement in turn undermines the authority and legitimacy of the police and prevents cooperative measures of stopping crime like community policing models. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (2015), 44 million people on average each year in the United States have some kind of face-to-face contact with police and of those 44 million, just under two percent experience use of threatening or nonfatal force. While this number may seem small, on the ground the high rate… Continue Reading...

Following His law to become all that He calls us to be in the fullness of our humanity requires both faith and works. We can develop deep spiritual values and still maintain our commitment to learning and secular social and intellectual development. God never intended for there to be a conflict between our spiritual lives and any other part of our existence. Paul expands and retranslates God’s covenant, just as Jesus renegotiated it. Zetterholm (2009) shows how Paul’s teachings conflict less with Judaism than… Continue Reading...

How Obesity Affects Epidemiology

Egger et al. have come up with a unified obesity prevention and epidemiology -connected strategy labeled ‘obesity ecological model’ (OEM) (Egger, Swinburn & Rossner, 2003). Host elements encompass individual mindsets and opinions, conduct, and physiological modifications (Mela, 2005). From a social standpoint, modern lifestyle supports reduced everyday physical exercise, which constitutes a key obesity driver. Leisure time is largely devoted to TV-viewing and personal computer, laptop or smartphone use. The above distinct influences contribute to the decreased expenditure of energy, having overt repercussions for leftover energy. This steady physical exercise reduction, perhaps, serves as a key factor for the growing… Continue Reading...

In today’s digital age, it is important that health care providers,… Continue Reading...

Workplace Safety

Q1. The Gauley Bridge disaster took place in the 1920s, before appropriate health and safety requirements were imposed upon industries to protect workers. Workers were often forced to tolerate such conditions because they had no other options by which to make a living. Furthermore, a certain degree of physical risk to workers was acceptable in the eyes of employers. To some extent, this is also true in many developing world nations such as India, where the Bhopal gas tragedy took place. If there was a sudden absence of federal and state mandates in the United States, workers would still bring… Continue Reading...

The Impact Of Using Bilingual Call Compared to Family Interpreters Research Paper

are hardly adhered to. The impunity with respect to this law is as a result of the feasibility and the costs involved with respect to the size and capacity of the health facility. The patient mix of a health organization and the size of the population which they attend to vary and thus LEP patient’s requirements differ which makes the blanket policies stipulated in the civil rights act as well as legal requirements by states hardly feasible in some health facilities. The health facilities, therefore, dispute this mandate since public and private insurers barely reimburses these service. The health… Continue Reading...

Ethics and Morality

sorts of ethical standards; for instance, one might have a sense of a natural law, or one might hold an ethical standard that is based on a philosophy, or one might adopt an ethical position based on one’s religious beliefs. Morality, for me, is more focused on actions: one’s actions may appear moral or immoral, but even here, they might appear moral to some but immoral to others because of the different approaches that people take to ethics and what constitutes rightness and wrongness. For me, ethics is such a big question mark because in today’s day and age,… Continue Reading...

Mongols History

Medieval Source Book: A literary History of Persia (45-46) The author Browne (2009) describes an encounter so vicious and so ruthless under the hands of some people from the East. These people invaded Asia with only one purpose, to kill. The author reiterates that there is a good chance that there has never been another calamity as vicious as the one encountered by the Persians during this period. According to him even the affliction that was meted on the children of Israel by Nebuchadnezzar was nothing compared to what he encountered. He says that the number of people massacred by… Continue Reading...

Serial Killers and the Media

their behavior, keeping track of serial killers can empower law enforcement to more effectively profile their psychology. Although this is not nearly as easy as it has been portrayed in Hollywood films, given the motiveless nature of the crime, it can be extremely useful (Winerman 2004). Profiling is not a replacement for effective investigation but it can enhance it. Serial killers will likely continue to attract the public’s attention in the future. But media coverage must err on the side of being responsible and informative, versus focusing on sensational details that could potentially inspire copycat actions. The media must… Continue Reading...

The Leadership Of Moses

In the Old Testament, Moses emerges as an unlikely leader of the captive Hebrews. Raised by the Egyptians like a son, he finds that he is actually a Hebrew and his relationship with the God of the Hebrews grows so that he is chosen to send a message to Pharaoh that God wants the Hebrews to be freed. Moses was an ethical leader from the beginning who practiced both ethical leadership and transformational leadership skills to bring the Hebrews to the Promised Land. He killed a slave master for cruelly whipping a Hebrew, fled, met an angel of God, and… Continue Reading...

Conclusion In conclusion, having an ethical framework is important when being a leader and in this case, our nurse manager was not operating within the ethical framework that was promoted in our community. She was… Continue Reading...

The Oj Simpson Case Analysis

US laws; influential entities include even 19th-century governmental authorities and political leaders. The system, which comprises law enforcement bodies like local police forces, correctional facilities and criminal courts, was primarily created for ensuring American citizens’ safety. It constitutes a structural framework that facilitates the maintenance of law and order in American society (Zedner & Ashworth, 2012; "Justice, Western Theories", 2018; Baldwin, 1912).  According to Mueller (1996), the structuring of the US criminal justice system has gone through several modifications after historic events occurred within the criminal law context that uncovered the system’s shortcomings (Mueller, 1996). These events, perhaps, influenced… Continue Reading...

Private Security Vs National Security

Antiterrorism Assistance (ATA) oversees the process of training civilian security and law enforcement personnel in routine police procedures involving terrorism issues, Department of State officials often work with foreign countries to construct a policy that will better enable the effective means of readying personnel in addressing bomb threats, investigations, security (airport, building and maritime), and VIP security. This kind of direct involvement between state security apparatuses and private security forces further blurs the line between private and national. However, the perception that private security forces are somehow inferior to national security forces should be eradicated by the fact that… Continue Reading...

Health Information Systems Assessment

1. How does or can HIT influence costs, quality, or access? Health information technology (HIT) utilization, in the words of Shekelle, Morton, and Keeler (2006), “has been promoted as having tremendous promise in improving the efficiency, cost-effectiveness, quality, and safety of medical care delivery…” With regard to quality, the authors point out that thanks to the integration of tools of knowledge acquisition and automated decision making, HIT comes in handy in medical error reduction. HIT also reduces redundancy, thus effectively bringing down costs associated with obtaining healthcare. This is more so the case with centralized medical records made possible by… Continue Reading...

Diversity in the Workplace

This paper will discuss the necessary pillars in place that will allow diversity to blossom and succeed within the workforce. Implementing educational programs within… Continue Reading...

While secular humanists espouse a nebulous ethical doctrine and draw on the various sciences listed above (as well as others),[footnoteRef:13] secular humanism as a worldview cannot be regarded as a religion because it fails to include the fundamental concepts of transcendence, the existence of supernatural explanations for otherwise seemingly natural events, or the need for subjugation to a quid pro quo relationship with one or more higher powers.

The last of those might be hard to define as different people have different ethical worldviews.

There are always going to be people that criticize what firms like Amazon does. There are always people that throw around words like “monopoly” or “oligopoly” when it comes… Continue Reading...

Death Penalty As a Deterrent for Murder

The death penalty acts as a forceful and compelling consequence for those who should choose to violate the law and commit murder. For that reason it can be said to be a deterrent. This paper also examines the opposing arguments and shows that those would say it is not an effective deterrent cannot offer any quantitative proof for this argument because no measurements exist that could possibly render such a claim factual or provable. The paper concludes by showing that the death penalty should only… Continue Reading...

When it comes to real property such as vehicles and land/real estate, there is usually a much more precise set of values, expectations and market factors that can help establish what something is worth. Cars and real estate in particular can be valued fairly precisely based on the age of the item and the demand that is present for the same. Further, an appraisal that is clearly out of line with reality can be easier to spot when such things are in place. However, there other items that are… Continue Reading...

Will Brazil Become a Global Trade Partner

1. Substitute strategy or substitution strategy was put in place by Brazil’s government following the 1930’s Great Depression because of the disastrous turn of events in its economy. With coffee being its main exporter at the time, Brazil had to change its economy. It did so during this time by creating an import substation strategy where the government would invest a massive amount of money and targeted key industries. Along with the investments and focus in other areas, Brazil’s government also safeguarded against competition using high tariff walls. The article notes that the strategy worked for four decades. Brazil saw… Continue Reading...

Exegesis Of Psalm 1

stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, 2but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. 3That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither— whatever they do prospers. 4Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. 6For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but… Continue Reading...

Domestic Violence and the Effect on Children

a lifetime’s worth of troubles which have run them afoul of the law. Instead of viewing convicts like this as enemies of society who deliberately violate society’s laws, it is important to understand what has caused the person to act out in this way in the first place. Giordano et al. (2016) point out that for many persons who are substance abusers there is typically an incident of childhood trauma at the bottom of their troubles. They have usually experienced some form of trauma commonly due to a domestic violence situation and they have turned to drugs and alcohol… Continue Reading...

Texas Constitution

over others. The sheer size of the document means that voters don’t bother to learn their rights within the law, but rather just vote for new amendments. Lawmakers keep adding more amendments to promote their own favor. Furthermore, one of the problems that begs for constitutional change is not simply the length of the document, but how many minute details are included. The excessive details make the document hard for the average individual to both comprehend and absorb. All the added details should be put in smaller statutory laws that could be forwarded by a legislature, later ratified by… Continue Reading...

Donald Trump 2018 Political Issues

where he was the boss and his word was pretty much law. The problem is that democracies do not quite work that way. In a democracy, such as the U.S., the need for consultations, shared goals, give-and-take, etc., cannot be overstated. It is important to note that while the president has demonstrated signs of incompetency since he took over the reins of power, complaining will not take us anywhere as a nation. It has been said, in the past, that complaining is never a strategy. It is either we decisively institute legal and constitutional measures of removing the president… Continue Reading...

Super Highway 8 Descriptive

Super Highway 8: A Simple Country Road in Virginia The image shows a charming country road composed of grass and dirt along a homemade wooden fence that is rustic and somewhat shabby, though in an aesthetically pleasing way. The road curves invitingly and along either side of the road is a row of trees that appear to have buds on them, not fully bloomed, giving the impression that the photograph captures the springtime. The qualities of the image are so perfect and so hyper-real, they look painted. The country road at times appears too perfect and tranquil, and the colors… Continue Reading...

The Morality Of Dropping Atomic Bomb on Japan

Anscombe and Truman’s Decision to Drop the Bomb As G.E.M. Anscombe notes in his essay criticizing Truman’s decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the intention was “to kill the innocent as a means to an end” (3)—the end being the unconditional surrender of the Japanese and the termination of WWII in terms favorable to the West. The question of whether those means were moral meets with another question: whether the desired end of the West could have been achieved by any other means. Anscombe points out that Truman’s policy to make war on the innocent stood… Continue Reading...

The New Nation Jackson and Beyond

What were the challenges of starting a new government? Although in the United States today the American Revolution is considered a noble effort, in the view of Great Britain at the time of the revolt it was seen as treason or the greatest crime possible against a legitimate government. Beginning a new government in an era where the divine right of kings and heredity was the primary source of legitimacy for most monarchs was an undeniable challenge for the colonists. This was particularly the case in the colonies given the fact that the American Revolution had focused upon separating the… Continue Reading...

Social Construction Theories on Serial Killers

Criminology researchers usually draw on multiple sociological theories for understanding crime and offenders. Certain elements of serial-killing research continue to be a subject of speculation and exploration, on account of the numerous preconceptions and myths surrounding the crime. The significance of establishing a theoretic basis to explain sociological factors proves crucial to distinguishing between fact and fiction (Hickey, 2013). Social Structure Theory This class of theories concentrates on the socioeconomic status of a person and suggests that the poor perpetrate more offenses owing to their struggle to achieve social or monetary success. They are, particularly owing to their subcultural, racial,… Continue Reading...

The Impact Of Social Media on Teenage Girls

Social Media on Adolescent Girls One current issue in society that has long been pervasive throughout the decades has been the power of the media and the negative impact it has wielded on adolescent girls. MTV videos, the fashion and modeling industries, commercials, film and television all show unrealistic portrayals of women with perfect appearances and hard to achieve bodies. Young people have engaged in the process of comparing themselves to what they see in the media for a while now; this is an issue that has been both recorded and researched. Social media, however, is a different form of… Continue Reading...

Of course, the Qur’an, which is “foundation of Islamic law,” left by Muhammad for the Muslims, serves as a guide in terms of laying down the principles and teachings that Muslims should follow so as to please Allah.[footnoteRef:17] [14: Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Islam: Religion, History and Civilization (NY: HarperCollins, 2003), 47.] [15: Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Islam: Religion, History and Civilization (NY: HarperCollins, 2003), 47-48.] [16: Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Islam: Religion, History and Civilization (NY: HarperCollins, 2003), 48.] [17: Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Islam: Religion, History and Civilization (NY: HarperCollins, 2003), 48.] The verses… Continue Reading...

Confronting the Problem Of Truancy

Attendance is a critical factor in school performance. But while poor attendance and truancy have been problems for schools virtually ever since anti-truancy laws were passed, as noted by Tomal, Schilling, & Trybus (2013), finding reliable data can be a challenge to accurately evaluate the extent of the problem, the specific groups most severely impacted by the issue of truancy, and thus solving the problem has been vexing for many educators. This paper will offer a literature review of different previous researchers’ perceptions of the issue in different contexts, the data they used, and the solutions they derived as a… Continue Reading...

Sustainable Construction and Structural Insulated Panels

Introduction Sustainability, a word most often discussed, yet least understood is a topic of interest in today’s growing society. With various interpretations offered, some treat sustainability in a superficial way. However, for many businesses, nations, and individuals that believe in the future sustainability has to offer, the word is a serious one aimed at promoting efficient use of resources, a chance at stable economic growth, and continued social progress. In modern society, construction plays a part in how one lives, goes to work, and buys and purchases services/products. If sustainable construction can provide a chance for less consumption, less use… Continue Reading...

Steps Of Economic Growth in Usa China and Germany

A fundamental economic concept of global commerce is, that in a marketplace with reduced hindrances towards the global movement of goods, nations can find it lucrative to focus on the creation of products that have a relative benefit in manufacturing (Wolak, 2011). This paper offers an evaluation of economic development methods and both, relative and absolute, benefit in global trade as it pertains to the USA, China as well as Germany. USA By having a great quantity of low-priced work crews compared to the United States, it is no wonder that China as well as other developing nations, around the… Continue Reading...

Constitutional Law and the Rowan County V Lund Case

of the Constitution, particularly the Establishment Clause. The Establishment Clause states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” (“Introduction to the Establishment Clause,” (n.d.). Even a cursory reading of the Establishment Clause shows that prohibiting commissioners from praying during the public meetings violates the First Amendment by “prohibiting the free exercise” of religion. Therefore, when the Supreme Court finally makes its deliberations in Rowan County v. Lund, it should rule in favor of Rowan County. The Rowan County practices have been grossly misunderstood and misrepresented. Thus far, federal courts have… Continue Reading...

Religion Bible and Paul and Story Of a Rabbi

them. 3. Remen’s story of the Great Rabbi and the Rabbi father beholden to a strict interpretation of Orthodox law offers a telling story. It is easier to rigidly adhere to a set of rules than it is to be flexible: at once committed deeply to one’s community and traditions while at the same time respectful of the infinite nuances life presents us. The Great Rabbi’s reaction to the story of Shoshana does reflect the teachings of Paul in the New Testament, particularly when it comes to freedom. Paul states outright that it is “for freedom that Christ has set… Continue Reading...

Police Culture

Description law enforcement has a distinct professional culture that is comprised of both formal and informal elements. Formal elements are ensconced in rules and regulations. For example, training, hours of work, how to fill out paperwork, and wearing a uniform according to an individual’s status in the organization are formal elements of the culture. Informal elements are unspoken, including norms of behavior and the jargon used between officers. For example, informal cultural norms are what have a direct bearing on “how to… Continue Reading...

Automatics Stays for Chapter 7 Bankruptcies

A woman by the name of Ann Elk is filing bankruptcy. She ostensibly owes about $5,000 to a creditor by the name of Orbit Bank. Orbit Bank has contracted with InMotion Debt Collectors to retrieve that debt. Concurrent to this, Ann starts to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. An automatic stay, thus, is then issued to help keep the creditors at bay and regulate what they are allowed to do. Despite this, InMotion initially demands that she pay $1,000, which Ann does. Subsequent to this, InMotion files a lawsuit demanding the entire amount due. While InMotion is being aggressive, Ann’s… Continue Reading...

Bus599 Slp 2 Pricing Strategy

Background This discussion continues with the analysis of how Module Price adjustments impact the total profits and market share of SunPower vis-à-vis industry-wide performance. Further, the discussion highlights how improvements in processes yield unit costs reduction. Like was the case with the previous exercise (SLP1), four major decision points will be taken into consideration in the current exercise, i.e. SLP2. A more conservative pricing approach will, however, be adopted in SLP2. Discussion Decision 1: Beginning of Year 1: 2007 (See Appendix 1) SLP1 Module Price: $0.15 SLP2 Module Price: $0.13 It is important to note, from the onset, that in… Continue Reading...

Multicultural Leadership Diversity in the Workplace

Being a job coach is an honor, a privilege, and even a necessity in today’s workplace environment. Based on evidence highlighting the effectiveness of coaching, more and more companies are “opting for team coaching as a more effective way to improve team capability and performance, while at the same time saving on costs,” (Stout-Rostron, 2016, p. 238). The friend in question should absolutely insert herself as a coach to help manage and leverage diversity in the organization and promote an organizational climate of inclusivity. In fact, someone with an international background is perfectly poised to guide organizational policy and practice… Continue Reading...

Things Fall Apart Novel Analysis

and it serves as a quasi-legal system. No one is above the religious law. Even if the religion is also replete with superstitions, at least it does provide an umbrella of universal norms that all must submit to no matter what their status in the community may be. After breaking the sacred Week of Peace, Okonkwo’s reputation suffers considerably but he is still given the benefit of the doubt as he already has an established role in the community. Okonkwo has lost sight of the ultimate purpose in his life, though. His image of fatherhood is so completely distorted… Continue Reading...

 innocence Of Bruno Hauptmann

It was called the “Trial of the Century,” after which Bruno Hauptmann was executed in the electric chair in April, 1936, having been convicted of the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh’s infant son (Cornwell 1). Lindbergh’s fame as one of Americans aviation heroes made Hauptmann’s a high profile case, one that might have also been tried in haste. Subsequent analyses of the Hauptmann trial indicate that the prosecution’s case rested on circumstantial evidence alone, and Hauptmann’s widow continued to publically proclaim her husband’s innocence until her own death (Blackman 1). Hauptmann himself was offered the opportunity to save his… Continue Reading...

The Relevance Of Business Ethics

business. In a globalized environment, utilitarian ethics also provide a universal framework rather than imposing a type of moral law that is dependent on culture, tradition, religion, or regional laws. Libertarian Ethics Libertarian ethics can help businesses understand the importance of respecting the rights of individuals, respecting and valuing diversity, and honoring the need for autonomy. Rooted in virtue ethics, libertarian ethics also focus on the development of good moral character within an organization’s leadership as well as its entire staff (Powell, 2013). Like utilitarian ethics, libertarian ethics are not predisposed to rules but nevertheless realize the importance of… Continue Reading...

Advance Practice Nursing Ethics Disclosure

Introduction An estimated 1.5 million “preventable adverse drug events” occur each year in the United States alone; the number of medication errors that did not lead to adverse effects but remained undisclosed is unknown (Jenkins & Vaida, 2007, p. 41). The scenario is this: You are working as an advanced practice nurse at a community health clinic. You make an error when prescribing a drug to a patient. You do not think the patient would know that you made the error, and it certainly was not intentional. Disclosure is an ethical and legal prerogative, showing respect for the patient and… Continue Reading...

Lemon Law and Spot Delivery Law in Maryland

the number of attempts allowed by the consumer by following the guidelines of Maryland’s lemon law. As the Council of Better Business Bureaus (2009) shows, “the lemon law covers any defect or condition that is covered by the warranty, presently exists, and substantially impairs the use and market value of the motor vehicle to the consumer” (p. 1). Moreover, there is legal precedent for these parameters, set by Laing v. Volkswagen of America, Inc., 180 Md. App. 136 (2008), Zitterbart v. American Suzuki Motor Corp., 495 A.2d 372 (Md. Ct. Spec. App. 2008), and Evans v. General Motors Corp.,… Continue Reading...

Preventing School Shootings

factor. Family life, drug usage, and even other elements—such as the inability of federal and local law enforcement agents to act on tips to prevent a situation from worsening (Benner, Mazzei, Goldman; Brown). The fact of the matter is that there are many variables and factors involved in every school shooting, and no two cases are alike—so establishing a plan to prevent them is much more complex than simply passing a new law or condemning one side of the argument. The Adam Lanza shooting, for example, involved a teenager whose family life had deteriorated to a dangerous low: his… Continue Reading...

Warehouse Management Information Systems and Technology

1. Privacy laws are continually in flux. The most recent blow to consumer privacy was the 2017 Congressional overturning of Internet privacy protections. According to the ACLU, those pro-privacy laws “would have prevented ISPs from sharing our browsing history with advertisers, forced ISPs to be clear about what information they’re collecting, and required ISPs to take reasonable steps to protect our data from hackers,” (ACLU, 2018). Several states, including Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and most of the Northeast have since begun the difficult process of working to reinstate Internet privacy laws (ACLU, 2018). The decision made in Washington, supported by… Continue Reading...

Colonial Conflict in Africa

Colonial Authorities in Africa and Their Attempts to Curb Leisure Activities through the law: The Conflict between African Identity and British Rule The British colonial administrators in Africa viewed Africans like “children” in need of training in terms of how to be more masculine ala the Western tradition: for that reason, Oliver Bell, president of the British Film Institute, wrote “the native must be treated as we treat a ten-year-old white child, i.e….he must be shown films of action of the Western type” (Burns, 2002, p. 103). While it was true that Africans enjoyed cowboy films,… Continue Reading...

Legal Precedent Constitution Religion and Education

Original Post Blackstone initially set the precedent, so to speak, for English common law. English common law became the foundation for American common law, which values judicial precedent over statutes. Many European countries in fact use statutes over legal precedents as the means by which to determine legality, distinguishing the Anglo-American system from others. Blackstone indicated, “that precedents and rules be followed, unless flatly absurd or unjust; for though their reason be not obvious at first view, yet we owe such a deference to former times,” something that has become so entrenched in American… Continue Reading...

The dealer gave the buyer the impression that Americredit was the financier and that impression lasted well beyond the initial four days—and yet as the plaintiff makes clear in the previous facts, the contract was signed on January 13 and title was given on February 12 and it was not until March 17 that the dealer requested the car back saying it was unable to find financing. The dealer was beyond the four days… Continue Reading...

Conflict Management in the Workplace

Workplace Conflict Management The modern business environment comprises individuals from different nationalities, racial and ethnic backgrounds because of increased globalization and rapid technological advancements. As a result, human resource management practices in today’s business atmosphere have incorporated diversity as a crucial component towards promoting the wellbeing and success of the workforce. Diversity is seen as an important factor in enhancing the contributions of the workforce toward achievement of organizational goals and objectives. However, organizations are faced with the need to handle conflicts effectively because of the diverse nature of the workplace and workforce (Oni-Ojo, Iyiola & Osibanjo, 2014). Therefore, workplace… Continue Reading...

Issues Relating to Taxation

Oprah Case In one of her television shows, Oprah Winfrey decided to give away Pontiac G6 Sedans to her audience. From an accounting perspective, its important to determine whether the value of these cars was taxable. Following a comprehensive analysis of taxable and nontaxable income, the cars awarded to the TV audience should have been included in their gross income and subject to federal taxation. According to federal taxation prizes and awards in the form of goods and services must be included in an individual’s income at their fair market value (Bureau of Internal Revenue, 2009). Federal taxation laws stipulate… Continue Reading...

Women in 20th Century Canadian Society

Five, responded to the social constraints of women in politics and in law.  These particular letters show that Emily Murphy and the Famous Five were against the fact that the Canadian government did not recognize a woman as a “person.” This group of five women was able to achieve this immense rectification of injustice through the writing of letters, as a means of response to damaging social conventions. Emily Murphy wrote to Stuart Edwards, the deputy minister of justice in Ottawa, Canada. She wrote to him to engage in a line of questioning to determine if a woman might… Continue Reading...
