How Does Heroin Impact a Caucasian Family

being physically and emotionally sustained by females. A majority of substance abusers may be emotionally attached to their mother figures and mothers. Hence, the recognition and successful involvement of Caucasian mothers (and other influential women in the family) as key resources for the treatment and prevention of drug abuse is crucial. A Caucasian male drug addict can negatively impact his non-drug dependent spouse's life by subjecting her to a strained interpersonal relationship, physical abuse, child abuse, emotional instability, economic insecurity, increased risks of contracting STDs, and denial of child education (United Nations Drug Control Programme, 1995).   Physiological and… Continue Reading...

Violence Against Women in Macho Paradox

all angels, men are not all monsters, and making men realize the important ties they have to women ( mother, daughter) they can then understand the fight is their fight as well. If men become involved in the movement, laws will be passed, children will be raised to see violence against women is wrong and will make a much longer lasting impact than simply labeling it a women's issue. Violence against women is often described using passive language. Katz notes in a later chapter the Janet Jackson incident and the failure of reporters to include any reference to Justin Timberlake.… Continue Reading...

Is Globalization a Good Thing

Globalization & Mexico Much has been made of the fact that world has gotten much smaller due to globalization. There has also been an associated shift in regardless to where products for sales in retail stores around the world, the West in particular, are made. Indeed, many of the items that were previously made in the United States are now made in Latin America and Asia with Mexico in particular being one of the ubiquitous countries that are involved. When it comes to globalization, many are prone to point out the positive outcomes and attributes that are developing. However, neither… Continue Reading...

Children Of Divorce and How They Can Be Helped

or sisters and with minimal contact with the outside world, Adam was mainly raised by his mother, who felt increasingly "at her wit's end," uncertain about how to "protect" him from both the outside world and from his more frequent fits of hysteria whenever it came time to leave his room (Stone, 2015; Wachtel, Shorter, 2013). The fact that Adam had essentially been denied a dual-parenting familial system only served to exacerbate his condition: as Rice and Hoffman (2014) note, such violent outbursts by "post-adolescent young manles must be understood from a developmental perspective...such killings occur as the result… Continue Reading...

Ethnicity

What is meant be the term ethnicity The term ethnicity encompasses the culture of a certain group of people or individuals in a certain geographical expanse taking into account their customs, language, religion and birthright. In order to be deemed a member of an ethnic group, one must conform to either all or a number of such aforementioned practices.

When she's finally forced by her mother to learn to make a traditional Punjabi meal, we can see her play keep-up with vegetables. It is only after Jess gets close to her coach, Joe, that she starts becoming conscious of her femininity, and changes (as depicted in the scene set in Hamburg, where she's dressed up like a typical girl for a party, with her hair done up by Jules) (KIRKUP, 2003).

Working Women and Breastfeeding

As breastfeeding is recognized as the superior mode of feeding infants, it must be protected, promoted and supported even among working mothers, after they return to their jobs. The WHO (World Health Organization) recommendation is that babies ought to be given nothing but breast milk until six months of age, with some amount of breastfeeding to be continued, at least till they reach two years of age (Deirdre Desmond & Sarah… Continue Reading...

Treatment and Counseling for Low Self Esteem

and thought of her father as a good person while her mother was something of a controlling one. She reported that her parents, sometimes, had a difficult relationship. She also reported feeling as if she was playing the middle man role in her parents' relationship. CBT has long been applied to treat depression. It has lately expanded the scope of the problems it is applied to treat including panic, anxiety sexual problems, difficulty in relationships problems to do with eating, drug dependency, post-traumatic stress and panic disorders (Fennell, 1999, p. 23). CBT offers me tried and tested solutions for… Continue Reading...

Patriarchs and Dysfunctional Families in the Bible

The stories of patriarchs reveal differential customs and social norms, creating problematic and marginalized modern interpretations. In what Breuggeman (2003) calls the "traditioning process," it has become customary to manufacture meaning within the Biblical texts in order to perpetuate their relevance. The political, social, and theological messages contained within patriarchal narratives are therefore similar to those located in other Biblical texts and depend on faith for their renewed value. Boadt (1984) points out also the means by which patriarchal figures and their corresponding social norms are codified in Biblical texts. The process of canonization and "traditioning" depends on acceptance of… Continue Reading...

Renaissance and Rise Of Humanism in Painting

wood with gold ground, the crucifixion of Christ. At the foot of the cross, is the Virgin Mary, His mother, collapsed and supported by sainted mourners on the ground. Angels collect the drops of Jesus' blood as mortal men/soldiers look up at the grisly scene that is both full of realism and symbolism. The mystery inherent in the scene is evident throughout -- the Virgin Mary is a mother; the Godhead is hung on a cross; the spiritual angels collect his very corporal and real blood. Two worlds essentially are thrust together in the spotlight in this painting --… Continue Reading...

Mark and Mathews Presentation Of Jesus’ Disciples

attend to the house of Israel. These disciples were closer to Christ that Jesus' own brothers and even mother (12:49). They always sought direction from him in private and public arena (13:10; 20:17; 24:3). When Jesus first commissions disciples in Mathew, he instructs them not to enter any Samaritan town or mingle with the Gentiles. He pointedly insists that they go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.[footnoteRef:19] [19: J. Park] In addition, the calling, of the disciples, points to the need of companionship that people have. Jesus could teach the 12 disciples deeply and even draw… Continue Reading...

Rubens, Caravaggio, and Bernini Baroque Artists

colors overwhelm the canvas. The story being told here is the death of the Virgin Mary, mother of God -- yet Caravaggio does so in a way that "rejects the elegance of the High Renaissance" and places the story firmly in "our world," emphasizing the lowly aspects of the Apostles (their bald heads, their poverty) and painting the Virgin in a way that she resembled (at least to the monks at the time) a drowned prostitute pulled from the river. The video does a very good job of pointing out how Caravaggio's composition leads the eye from the hanging… Continue Reading...

As of now, Eliza is not taking any mental health medication.  Psychosocial assessment forms a key component of all nursing evaluation, as it aids nursing professionals by informing the disorder management and patient care plan. Individuals usually display diverse kinds of surgical or medical issues. Further, social or psychological aspects might impact their adherence to therapy and their recovery (Conducting a Page 85 Psychosocial Assessment). The rationale behind conducting a psychosocial evaluation is: explicitly articulating distinct issues in the individual’s life which may affect his/her psychological… Continue Reading...

Byzantine Art from the Middle Ages

1290 and 1295. It tells the age-old story of the mother of God serving as the mediatrix of all graces and is styled in the familiar Byzantine mold, yet with an incomparable richness and attention to detail that firmly places it at the end the 13th century. It is tempera with gold leaf on a panel; the gold flashes and brilliantly announces the majesty of the Queen of Heaven whose Son is the Savior of the World. At a time when kings and princes viewed for power across the world, this work of art reminds the Christians of that… Continue Reading...

Parent and Child Communication Article Review

This did not take account of the likelihood to test for the father- mother variances in forms of communication. In turn, it fails to give a resolve on the issues as to whether gender dissimilarities are perhaps impacted by father-mother variances. Utilizing parental accounts of the similar behaviors may offer a dissimilar perception on these practices. Another limitation is that the study utilized an equally identical sample of adolescents generally from European-Canadian origin and emanating from a distinct geographical region. The present conclusions should be replicated with more culturally and financially varied samples. Possible Contemporary Application of Results The possible… Continue Reading...

Cultural Phenomenon Of Stranger Things

Things is a television show on Netflix that recounts the story of a missing boy, a frantic mother, and three friends looking for an answer. The show is a pastiche of popular 80's movies and television shows that featured monsters like E.T. and telekinetic children like Charlie in Firestarter. While the show does not hit on anything original, it does manage to hit a nerve among fans and has swept the nation with its sweet whispers of nostalgia. The show perhaps invites people to reach for their own ideologies in life vicariously through the main characters. Althusser discusses ideologies… Continue Reading...

Oswald was fixated on getting what he desired. There are so many similar case histories in prison files. Oswald developed hate for the world while he was still very young. He also believed that he had to succeed on his own. In addition, he realized the reality that he needed to grow without the maternal warmth he should have acquired from his mother.

Trust Within a Marriage

Conflict Management Resolving of conflicts between two people is usually simple. However, in many situations, resolution of conflicts can be made more difficult. This is true when it comes to workplace situations, per chance conflicts that arise with strangers and so forth. However, when family or friendship is in the mix and a conflict is present, resolution and solutions can be fleeting and hard to come by. Not only are there personal feelings and a lot of history involved, there can also be a lot of bogging down and movement away from clean solutions as there can be a focus… Continue Reading...

Advanced Practice Nursing

American Healthcare System: Implications for Advanced Practice Nursing Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) is the group of health care professionals on whom stakeholders and lawmakers depend to deliver most of America's health care. APRNs refer to registered nurses who've attained advanced clinical and educational practice requirements. They include clinical nurse specialists, nurse anesthetists, certified nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners. Experts project that the demand for APRNs is bound to increase as hospitals pay more attention to the most unstable and sickest patients and move most of health services to homes, nurse-managed clinics, birthing centers, schools, community health centers, and other centers… Continue Reading...

Soren Aabye Kierkegaard

already expecting the couple's first baby. The last of seven siblings, Soren, was born when his father and mother were 56 and 45 years of age, respectively (Evans, n.d.). Just like his father, Soren was "melancholic" and guilt-ridden throughout his life. His relationship with his father was probably the greatest influence during the most decisive phase of his life: his failed relationship with fiancee, Regine Olsen. Although Kierkegaard fell in love and got engaged to Ms. Olsen in the year 1840, he almost immediately felt he had committed a serious mistake, and following a painful spell wherein he acted… Continue Reading...

Hiv, Aids, and Hp2020 Initiative

Healthy People 2020' initiative (HP2020) greatly emphasizes social health determinants, health inequity factors, and income and educational goals. Further, it adopts a broader perspective of the health effects of natural and manmade environments. The National Prevention and Health Promotion Council, by building on this initiative, offers a new means to implement a government-wide 'health in every policy' approach. Several NPS (National Prevention Strategy) interventions will extend across sectors and departments, influencing various health results (Fielding, Teutsch, & Koh, 2012). Numerous HIV / AIDS-linked clinical characteristics may be attributed to the intense immune deficiency developing among infected individuals. Immune system breakdown… Continue Reading...

Genetic Testing

prenatal genetic testing as the procedure can be unsafe for the fetus and mother and is not entirely accurate. Ethos means persuading a person through the persuader's credibility or character. Prenatal genetic testing is performed by a qualified doctor who has experience, and a history of formal education. By having a qualified doctor perform the procedure, it may result in a positive outcome in terms of understanding what genetic conditions the baby may have. Logos appeals to logic and so prenatal genetic testing may be useful to those inherited an illness or have family members with an inherited illness.… Continue Reading...

Pro Slavery in the Antebellum Period

Proslavery arguments were the justifications proslavery propagators used to justify the institution of slavery. The period that saw the rise of these arguments was the 1830s through to the 1860s as the abolitionist movement gained ground and made their concerns more visible to the nation. This essay examines the theories proslavery propagators used to justify the institution of slavery and also slaves' view of the practice. All factors considered, the South's position on slavery was mainly for self-preservation and to protect their economic interests that were mainly supported by slave labor. Slavery Theories Proslavery theorists were champions of a contemporary,… Continue Reading...

Working Women Breastfeeding

of and accept breastfeeding's positive effects on health for the baby and his/her mother. Studies suggest that macro- and micro-level economic advantages, organizational ROI (returns on investment) and environmental benefits represent breastfeeding's key secondary benefits. With regard to economic advantages at the micro level, reduced formulaic expenditures alone can generate savings from $1k to $4k a year for individual families. Added savings on indirect expenses include reduced medical bills linked to babies falling ill, and reduced working mothers' absenteeism from work for sick babies' doctor appointments. Macro-level advantages include a convenient to reducing healthcare spending across the nation. Breastfeeding… Continue Reading...

Indians Influence Founding Fathers

Native American Influence on the Constitution The event or issue discussed in this document is the influence of Native Americans on the U.S. Constitution. There is a fairly lengthy history of research that contends that Native Americans actually played a considerable role in the founding of the U.S. Constitution. Moreover, there is also evidence that supports that certain members of the founding fathers were directly impacted by Native Americans. In fact, there are specific Native American tribes and political representations of these tribes that are alleged to have contributed to the U.S. Constitution. A good amount of this evidence is… Continue Reading...

Aboriginal Perspective and the Secret River

A key element is the perception of land as a mother, with aboriginals having a responsibility to care for the health of the land and water on that land (Pettit, 2015). When aboriginal people, with a strong spiritual connection to the loan, see it being taken, and then altered by settlers, there is a natural desire to protect that land. The aboriginal people had existed for generations without the need to cultivate land, the process of cultivation invariably resulted in destruction of the natural environment. While to the western eyes the cultivation of land may have been an improvement,… 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...

The Secret Lion by Alberto Alvaro Rios Review

similar change that is observed on the grinding ball because after safely hiding it from their mother, it disappears. Hiding the ball from their mother is inspired by the fact that their mother would ask them to "get rid of it" (Rios 1). The import of these acts is that children make decisions consciously and look up to their seniors to accept and approve them; which, unfortunately, does not usually happen. Therefore, children are forced to find alternatives. The boys tried as much as they could to keep their ball safe but somehow it vanished. The incident is symbolic… Continue Reading...

Legal Status Of the Fetus

slogans and rhetoric. Pro-Life Arguments • Antiabortionists argue that life begins at conception. Thus abortion is murder. • The mother is ultimately responsible for allowing a pregnancy to occur. Thus, she must take responsibility for her failure to prevent the pregnancy from occurring if her mate does not desire pregnancy • If abortion is legalized, people will use it as a birth control method. • All babies are potentially very important members of society. An aborted fetus could have been stopped from becoming a positively life changing person in real life (Sexinfo, 2014). Pro-Choice Arguments • A child should only be brought… Continue Reading...

Sources Of Birth Defects in Older Mothers

High-Risk Pregnancies Having a baby is a dream that many families have. Women in particular are associated with the idea and "dream" of having a child but men are pretty excited about it to when it comes, albeit also nervous. However, there is a danger when it comes to waiting too long before starting a family in terms of age. Whether it is career concerns, finding the right, the delaying of the marriage or what have you, there are multiple reasons that are common in today's society whereby women put off having families. An unfortunate byproduct of this pattern is… Continue Reading...

East Asian History Questions

install their preferred successor -- one faction siding with the deceased king's mother's choice and the other favouring the choice of Hyojong. This struggle is played out in a debate over imperial mourning ritual -- should the empress dowager mourn her son's death as a mother or as a subject? As the court official responsible for ritual, you have been charged to make a decision -- what is it? The Choson depended on ritual to a large degree, as it reinforced systems of power and authority. Moreover, Choson Korea was dominated by Neo-Confucian norms related to all social hierarchies,… Continue Reading...

The hearing court refused to grant the recovery, and rejected the theory that claim a recovery should be awarded when there is a predictable injury on a relationship that is legally established.

Since an action taken in consideration of all such relatives of the victim of the accident would not have been allowed, there was a need for the court to come up with a policy decision as to… Continue Reading...

In 1976, when she was age nineteen, Wang egam publishing her stories. Indeed, this came after the Cultural Revolution and the fall of what was known as the "Gang of Four" (Encyclopedia).

Childrens Rights and Teacher Advocacy

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

African Slave Trade

Resistance and Complicity It is impossible to understand or write about Africa's history without considering its relationship with continents like Europe and America. It is imperative that a discussion of the subject concentrate on Africans' pivotal shaping of world history (Lindsay, 2007). Europeans (i.e., Englishmen, Dutchmen, the Portuguese, and the French) contributed only superficially to shaping Africa's history during the Atlantic era's first two centuries, engaging in merchandizing and goods transportation between sea coasts. Only after 1640 did the Europeans, in what is known as the 2nd Atlantic Era (1640-1800s), begin demanding slaves and raw materials, commencing their cruel influence… Continue Reading...

Myelodysplastic Syndrome

Myelodysplastic Syndromes, which were previously considered rare, are currently known as some of the most frequently occurring hematological neoplasms, perhaps affecting over 30,000 patients each year within the U.S. The nation's regulatory permission of lenalidomide, azacitidine and decitabine, from 2004 to 2006 appeared to indicate a new age in the improvement of therapy for disease modification for these disorders. However, no indications of drugs being approved for MDS appear to be present in the U.S. for the past 8 years. There are no curative drugs available so far. However, some compounds under development may be approved soon. Consequently, diagnoses of… Continue Reading...

Cross Cultural Impact Of China on Vietnam Today

it was merely an instance of a fruit ripening and dropping from its mother tree in order to begin a related but geographically separate life" (p. 8). The author makes the point that the degree to which Vietnam was acculturated to China during any given period in its history remains a timely and relevant issue today: "The question is important to Vietnamese history because Vietnamese emperors and bureaucrats privately hardly ever ceased asking it" (p. 8). The point is also made that despite the uniqueness of the Vietnamese experience vis a vis China, it shared a common feature with… Continue Reading...

Escobedo eventually confessed. However, the confession was annulled because it was made without Escobedo's lawyer's presence. In view of the court, when police investigation focuses on particular suspects, the criminal prosecution starts; and thus, the right to counsel must be respected. It points out that if the accused do not have a right to an attorney until they are presented for trial, and they make confessions before trial that with… Continue Reading...

8 Issues Regarding Public Health in Brazil

Developing Country and Health: Enhancing Public Health in Brazil In Brazil, public health issues are similar to those in other developing and developed countries. For instance, just as obesity and diabetes is a problem of epidemic proportions in the U.S., so too is it in Brazil. Brazil's health care structure, however, is significantly different, with free health care for all citizens being available (the finer details of this policy are not as alluring as they may seem on the surface, as long wait times for health care can often be the result) (Fleury, 2011). Nonetheless, this paper will highlight eight… Continue Reading...

Hiv Aids Infrastructures Around the World

HIV / AIDS were being treated with medicines that are designed to prevent the disease's transmission from mother to infant by year-end 2015 (HIV / AIDS, 2016). Despite this progress, there were still 2.1 million new cases of HIV / AIDS and 1.1 million people died from the disease in 2015 (HIV / AIDS, 2016). In the case of South Africa where infection rates are inordinately high, a sustained lack of resources has caused the national government to increasingly rely on nongovernmental organizations for surveillance and treatment assistance (Powers, 2016). Likewise, HIV / AIDS sufferers in Vietnam are generally… Continue Reading...

preceding semester, and as a result, my grades suffered. My mother, a sickle cell patient became very ill in the middle of the first semester, which sadly led to her demise. Whilst my mother was ill, I found it very difficult to find ample time to work.

I had to attend home routines and domestic tasks. These forced undertakings left me with little time for studying… Continue Reading...

I never thought anything of it until he began to use extensively the things he sold. At first, he experimented with the marijuana and then he moved up to the cocaine. I never saw him snort the cocaine outright. But his nose eventually started having a faint sprinkling of powder on it whenever he left to the bathroom.

Main Systems Of Human Body

similarly as well as in conjunction. For instance, during postpartum milk release, when babies suck the mother's nipple, the nipple's sensory cells transmit signals to the brain's hypothalmus, which releases posterior-pituitary oxytocin which enters the blood stream, reaches the target mammary gland, and eventually results in milk release from the nipple (Ader et al., 1995). The two systems also impact each other. The nerve cells regulate adrenal medulla whilst the human endocrine system controls nervous system development. Differentiation The chief area where the nervous and endocrine systems differ from one another may be explained as follows. The human nervous… Continue Reading...

that she wants to "get over" the physical abuse she was subjected to her from her mother's ex-husband (her stepfather). In the third therapy session with Jen, she abruptly claims that she may not be continuing with therapy because she is just "therapist shopping." Also in this session, Jen mentioned for the first time that she works as an exotic dancer. She asks with a belligerent tone, "You don't have a problem with that, do you?" Even though there was no response, Jen quickly defends herself, saying, "I love my work. I make so much money. There is nothing… Continue Reading...

Death and Meaning Of Life in Tuesdays with Morrie

like Mitch in "Tuesdays with Morrie," watches someone she loves die. In "My mother is not a Bird," Grey points out that she does not believe in Heaven, which seems to shock a lot of people. Similarly, Grey's mom was also uncomfortable with the concept of heaven. "All she wanted was an endless, soundless sleep," (Grey p. 2). One of the ways that Grey and her mom cope with the fear of death is through humor, which creates small, seemingly meaningless little memories, tidbits of conversation that actually turn out to be remarkably instructive and instrumental for growth. The… Continue Reading...

Treating Depression with Act

Acceptance and Commitment Theory It largely appears as though Jacob is experiencing signs of depression. There are a number of telltale signs which point to this assessment. One of these signs is he has recently experienced a life-altering event with the loss of his business. Such a loss is especially devastating for this individual because it was his sole source of income, which lends a degree of pragmatism to the sort of anxiety which can rapidly lead to depression (Cadigan and Skinner, 2015, p.293). This notion is compounded by the reality that he seems somewhat unilateral in his interests, claiming… Continue Reading...

Failing the Bechdel Test

the term people in this country "did not mean your mother or your grandmother" (1), partly because they were marginalized as women. There is a degree of importance associated with names in movies, as named characters frequently are imbued with the sort of characterization denoting they are significant parts of the movie's plot. Many movies fail this facet of the Bechdel test because women are not deemed important enough to warrant more than one character with a name in it by today's society. Another important characteristic of the Bechdel test which many movies fail, and which corroborates the fact… Continue Reading...

In her memoirs, Hernandez presents a poignant picture of living in a bilingual world where she must help her parents with English while sorting out the day-to-day challenges that life presents all young people.

Nurse Advocacy and Patient Autonomy

have. I might even suggest that the patient ask his mother to remain at his side, because she is a nurse and could provide the multiple levels of care he needs at this time. If that were not possible, I would locate a nurse specialist who was familiar with the specific type of insulin pump the patient has and likes. If patient safety and his wishes were in provable and immediate conflict, the best way to approach it is by explaining the issue in detail. The patient is already well-informed about what diabetes is, and what it can mean… Continue Reading...

Relationship Of Food and Ritual in India

the other side of the wall, was a hunched over mother wearing a sari and a small girl who looked to be her daughter. They were sitting on the corner of the road at the intersection across the ways. Eric could not tell if they were begging or not. So little of India made sense to him -- and many Indians looked to him like beggars. At any rate, the mother and the daughter looked very hungry. There was hunger in their eyes, in their brows which were folded down as though from years of hardship. Nearby them a… Continue Reading...

Personal Versus Professional Values

Perhaps the lack of a religious bias helps predict that both Eboni's mother wants the pregnancy terminated. Incidentally, her boyfriend wants the pregnancy terminated as well. There are also the concerns about the roommates at the house. The social worker should only include religion and spirituality to the extent that it is present and a factor in the life of Eboni. Meaning, Eboni needs to make up her own mind based on the circumstances and details in play. To avoid any manifestation of bias, the social worker should explain that Eboni could and should make the decision that is… Continue Reading...

Vathek Stories

a lot of blood as also sexual aspects but towards the end delineates how Vathek and Carithis, his mother, wind up in the underworld owing to their actions, a gory ending. The representations of hell and the underworld do bring about a sense of horror and dread. He does this combining various representations of exotic sceneries, supernatural events, and measured luxury of event, personality, behavior, sentiment, and speech (Beckford 374). The use of evil ambience, spirits, and djinns shows just how well Beckford combines the two aspects and in turn generating a fantasy story tale that has magic, horror,… Continue Reading...

Now, although I try to remedy this insufficiency with my mother, it is difficult to create a relationship when we do not have a strong foundation based on care and nurture. I also fear the impact this will have on myself as I mature, and have a family of my own. If I was not the recipient of close parenting, how can I provide it, and if I am provided, how will I know I'm doing it correctly? The answer is I cannot know that I am unless I bring another… Continue Reading...

Incompatibility Between Islam and Human Rights

human beings are brothers to one another. They all are the descendants of one father and one mother. "And we set you up as nations and tribes so that you may be able to recognize each other" (Quran 49:13). Despite the stipulated Quranic teaching, men and women are not equal in the Islamic countries. Women are not allowed to acquire education in the Islamic countries. It is essential to realize that Quran plays highest emphasize in the acquisition of knowledge, and Quran does not discriminate between men and women with regards to knowledge acquisition.

Kraft Foods Canada Targeting Of the Millennials

Situation Analysis Marketing to Millennials is important. The problem has been that they have been ignored and instead, their parents were the ones that were a market to for many years. This is significant since parenthood is altering the way millennials have been interacting with products and how they pick the products. Before they had children, millennials were particularly more likely to purchase brands that they looked at as having amazing quality. This was regardless of the value. They now put a greater stress on convenience and price in comparison to other features when ordering for themselves. Kraft Canada wants… Continue Reading...

Enactment Of the 19th Amendment Xix

Juvenile Offenders in St Louis

Steele, representing Nathan, discussed his background including physical and sexual abuse and having a mother addicted to crack cocaine. He endured times where he was homeless and had to fend for himself and while Steele did not represent such information as an excuse, it sheds light on why some juvenile offenders may commit crimes. The rest of the closing arguments involved the firefighter citing substance abuse problems after the incident and the off-duty police officer losing her job. The case seemed emotional and heated because it involved several layers of suffering from both sides. Ultimately, Nathan will remain in… Continue Reading...

Religion in Ancient Greece

One of the most notable flaws exhibited by Zeus was his unquenchable desire for sex (Atsma). Indeed, Zeus' mother forbade him from marrying, fearing that his voracious lust would create problems for himself and his wife or wives. Zeus, however, defied his mother's prohibition, making his own mother the first victim of his lust. Zeus had sexual intercourse with not only his mother, but also female deities as well as his aunts, sister, and cousin. For ancient Greeks, the gods, albeit invisible, always lived with the people. They watched everything people did. To succeed in life, therefore, it was… Continue Reading...

Research Paper Topic and Annotated Bibliography

Selection of Research Paper Topic An analysis of the link between hopefulness, quality of life (QOL) and internalized stigma among autistic kids' parents is the objective of the current research. Autism impacts the patient as well as their parents, who require wide-ranging support services. The entire family of autism patients gets distressed during its attempts at raising the patient/child, potentially leading to diverse psychological and social problems among family members. Therefore, when catering to special needs kids and developing interventions and initiatives for autism-diagnosed kids, mental healthcare providers and social workers need to consider parental mental health status.

Culture and Identity in Everyday Use

this story was very funny and very simply told from a mother's perspective as she sees her daughter return home from the college she sacrificed so much to send her to -- only to see that her daughter has taken on a pseudo-identity in order to "tap into" the heritage and culture of her "people". Ironically, her daughter misses the point of heritage and culture and people completely -- by politicizing it, she neglects the human element and dismisses her own family in her pursuit of her so-called heritage. It is a very ironic story yet it is also… Continue Reading...

Figurative Language and Imagery in Poetry

that makes the pans shake to the frown of the mother to the waltzing off to bed, the child still clinging tightly for dear life to the father's shirt. Rhythm is one poetic device used in the poem, which marks time and keeps the beat flowing. Another is rhyme and the poem has an ABAB rhyme structure. These poetic devices contribute to the poem's message by making it playful (the rhyming gives it an innocent feel) and the rhythm makes the reader feel like he is keeping time with the father and child as they waltz. My listening experience… Continue Reading...

According to Chen Jirong, the theme "Shame, Amah!" portrayed Ah Xiao as a colonized woman who lacked education and basic knowledge to survive in the society. According to Chang, Ah Xiao was silenced woman although neither a socially degenerated and a pitiful creature. By… Continue Reading...

Abortion

and not simply a right not to have his/her life taken. Consequently, any mother who resolves to terminate her unborn baby's life justly has not violated the baby's right to live. The major part of Thomson's work serves to outline a few scenarios wherein an individual may be justly taking a life. One scenario would be that of music fans attaching an individual's circulatory system with an unconscious musician's system for saving his life. While the former individual had not given permission to carry this out, he is now told that if the musician is unplugged, he would die.… Continue Reading...

Cause Of Us Revolution

Both Crown and Parliament felt that the colonies were tremendous sources of wealth for the mother country, and viewed the resources of those lands as their own. The people who lived in those lands, however, did not agree with this view. They saw themselves as having effective control over the lands and felt that they were not being granted enough power over those lands. That included the power to make laws and the power of taxation. This created tension between the colonists and the mother country, as the colonists increasingly saw themselves more as American than British, but just… Continue Reading...

When I began writing it, I thought that the fender bender would be the climax of the story -- but once I arrived there I realized how anti-climactic it was and that no one reading the narrative would be impressed by it or particularly jolted by it. In my young experience, I had remembered the incident well -- but I could not convey the impressions I had at the time… Continue Reading...

According to Rausch, John the Baptist is "clearly a historical figure" who was not necessarily preaching anything new or revelatory (p. 1).

When Jesus went to see and meet with John the Baptist, the event "changed his life," according to Rausch (p. 4).

Robert Hayden Those Winter Sundays

in the home environment. Notably absent from the poem is the speaker's mentioning of a mother, suggesting possibly that the father was a single father raising his son. Robert Hayden's "Those Winter Sundays" comments on masculinity as well as social class, thereby as the poet reveals the intersection between gender and class. One of the prevailing themes of "Those Winter Sundays" is how the relationships between fathers and sons become strained when the fathers are conscripted to work in the capitalist model of labor exploitation. As Hiraldo points out, literature like Hayden's "Those Winter Sundays" and Miller's Death of… Continue Reading...

He then continues by adding, because the mother nourishes the infant, she possess the primary parental right.

Locke believed dominion should not be forced, except within the family. "The authority parents wield over their children… Continue Reading...

Feminism in Frankenstein Introduction

children. Shelley "overemphasizes her passivity," living vicariously through Dr. Frankenstein (Knoepflmacher 97). The contradiction between her active role as author-creator- mother and her passive role as female-subordinate-bereaved is why O'Rourke calls the 1831 introduction a "gateway into the paradoxes of the original novel," (367). Its exaggerated self-deprecation and her pandering to the publishers point to the fact that Shelley used the 1831 introduction as a way to rebrand the text, promoting the novel as a whole to a new audience capable of deciphering the subtextual arguments against patriarchy. Shelley's Frankenstein veils feminist discourse and autobiographical fact without deviating from the… Continue Reading...

African American Culture

The social structure often takes on a matriarchal tone although both mother and father can make decisions for the family (Dimensions of Culture, 2017). African-American women are also more college-educated than African-American men and may remain unmarried (Dimensions of Culture, 2017). In general, there is a respect for elders amongst the African-American population and there may be a more traditional perspective regarding gender roles. Interracial dating and marriage may be frowned upon. Often elders take care of their grandchildren and avoidance of institutionalization for African-American elders is common. While not all African-American people live in disadvantaged neighborhoods, those that… Continue Reading...

The Various Ways to Learn

Learning something can be difficult. The human brain is a complex structure that science and research has just begun to understand. When students attempt to learn something new, they may have trouble understanding concepts and linking them together.

That is why it is important to attempt to understand what the human brain is and ways to integrate information more effectively in the minds of students aiming to learn. From neuroscience, socio-cognition, literacy and language development, diversity and culture, and connectionism, there are a… Continue Reading...

Social Control As Displayed in the Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood set out to depict a society in the future, one that in her eyes had characteristics that needed to be solved from the present. This novel is dystopian in nature which presents a dysfunctional society in the future as seen in the eyes of the author. It is however instrumental to note that most of the works of fiction that are set in the future, are actually meant to help correct the current vices or giving a precautionary note to the society. Here, the republic of Gilead, fictitiously described represents the regions where women suffer under male dominance… Continue Reading...

As her mother Mrs. Hopewell puts it to Manley Pointer, the Bible salesman, "My daughter is an atheist and won't let me keep the Bible in the parlor" (O'Connor 278). Manley turns out to be both Joy's double and foil -- atheistic like herself, but also seeking to seduce her for her false leg (he is a collector of oddities), even as she seeks to seduce him to show that she does not believe in sin.

It was as though Christ were stepping out of hiding for one of the first times since His childhood and revealing His power at this marriage celebration, uniting His own glory to that of the sacrament of matrimony. If the wedding sacrament symbolizes new life generationally speaking (marriage leads to procreation), the Last Supper sacrament symbolizes new life spiritually speaking (Christ explains that the… Continue Reading...

History and Context Of the Tao De Ching Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu was "conceived at the moment that his mother glimpsed a falling star," and another that he was "born at the age of 62 when his mother stopped to rest beneath a plum tree," ("History of the Tao de Ching," 1). The former motif of his being conceived in conjunction with a falling star implies a cosmic coincidence, and also parallels the core teachings of Taoism as reflecting harmonious concordance with the universe. The concept of Lao Tzu being born at age 62 reflects the belief in the sage's innate and inborn wisdom and his being predestined to… Continue Reading...

Theme Of Revenge in Hamlet

Hamlet does eventually strike out in the scene in his mother's closet, but accidentally kills Polonius, rather than the king. Scholars have endlessly debated why Hamlet takes so long to kill Claudius and one obvious explanation is that he simply does not want to and is aware of the fact that if he kills Claudius, more deaths will simply follow. Revenge does not end the cycle of death, it only begins it. Hamlet's feelings about the pointlessness of violence are further illustrated when he sees Fortinbras, the Norwegian leader fighting for a contested piece of territory. In the words… Continue Reading...

At the end of Act 1 he is not, however, completely insane. As further scenes reveal, he is struggling with his mind and attempting to find some support. Horatio is some support, but Horatio's own rationalistic bent is not what Hamlet needs. Hamlet has no problem using reason to justify a position; his problem is that reasons are insufficient. He seeks love's supports, but Ophelia is in the… Continue Reading...

In other words, he will try to perfect a solution or fix a problem right away and will not wait until there is a major crisis or problem.

Presentation Of Gender in Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein

born, Frankenstein's dream showed Elizabeth changing into "the corpse of [his] dead mother" (Shelley, 84) and this gives a clear representation of the way the abnormal birth of the monster points to a real and supernatural demise of women. Despite this, this embarrassment of females is subtly shown to be baseless as Frankenstein himself relates the absolutely negative effects attached to that sort of reality. (2) The real "monster" of the novel: Viktor Frankenstein or his Creature. Thesis Statement Victor Frankenstein would have never converted his creature into a monster if he knew how to love and take responsibility… Continue Reading...

Parent Involvement and Student Academic Performance

Parent Involvement and Student Academic Performance: A Multiple Mediational Analysis David R. Topor, Susan P. Keane, Terri L. Shelton, and Susan D. Calkins Numerous studies have shown a clear positive relationship between the involvement of a parent in a child's education, and the academic performance of the child. This particular study seeks to explore the mechanisms of the said association. On that front, only two potential mechanisms are taken into consideration. These, according to the authors, include; 1) the quality of the relationship between the teacher and the student, and 2) the child's perception of cognitive competence.

Discrimination and Social Justice Issues Today

Representative X: As healthcare legislation continues to be debated in the House and Senate, I would like to express my support for the continuation of one, significant policy that was instituted under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), namely the idea that young people under the age of 26 should be permitted to remain on their family's health insurance policies. The current generation of young people is graduating with more college debt than ever before and many new graduates are forced to take jobs that do not offer full benefits. The rise of freelance employment also means that many young persons… Continue Reading...

Applying Criminology Theory in Iceman

a railroad brakeman (father) and a meat-packing factory worker ( mother), Kuklinski demonstrated a preposterous degree of nastiness towards animals, right from his childhood. He enjoyed tying cats together by their tails, throwing them onto clotheslines and witnessing them tearing one another apart. He also frequently put felines in his building's incinerator and watched them burn to death. His cruelty also extended to canines: He would throw dogs off rooftops or dangle them from bus bumpers. He quit studying after grade 8. In his young adulthood, he grew into a recognized face among pool hustlers and street toughs. At 25… Continue Reading...

Norway and Germany Compared to Us in Incarceration

the Netherlands (Subramanian, Shames, 2013, p. 7). At the same time, Germany makes use of mother-child units that support women who are pregnant so that they may obtain custody of their child post-release (Subramanian, Shames, 2013, p. 16). This is another example of the humane approach to incarceration that the European nations take, which is not really found in the American approach. Sentences are much lower in terms of number of years in Europe than they are in America, where one can be sentenced for decades for a non-violent crime such as selling marijuana. Recommendations for the US are… Continue Reading...

A Good Man Is Hard to Find Flannery O'connor

climax, the Misfit claims that his parents were fine people: “God never made a finer woman than my mother and my daddy's heart was pure gold,” (O’Connor 147). Indeed, they probably were. The Misfit’s evil nature is not attributable to anything logical except perhaps frustration at the current state of society symbolized by the ignorant grandmother. If he did not experience childhood trauma to get him where he is now, then the Misfit is a killer simply for the pleasure of it, rendering him a pure sociopath. However, the final line of the short story is uttered by the… Continue Reading...

Poem Analysis the Very End by Tom Sleigh

The poem that is reviewed in this brief essay is The Very End, as written by Tom Sleigh. As is indicated by the essay assignment prompt, the poem is about Sleigh’s grandmother. This is made quite clear on the page with the poem. Indeed, there is the text “For my grandmother” just below the title of the essay. What follows is a poem that is not terribly long. However, there is obviously a lot going on and the verbiage on display is both profound and nebulous at the same time. This is true in terms of what is said about… Continue Reading...

Improving Health Care for Native Americans

Underserved Populations One of the most underserved populations in America with respect to health care is Native Americans. This community has a higher burden of illness, injury and premature death, and the health care needs of this population are seldom part of policy discussions because of its relatively small population (Katz, 2004). More are uninsured than most other groups as well, which creates problems with respect to access to care. Katz (2004) notes that almost half of low-income Native Americans are uninsured (prior to the ACA), and that over half of this group has incomes more than 200% below the… Continue Reading...

National Security Impact Of Immigration Policy

Immigration Policies as a Tool for National Security Of late, societal apprehension towards immigrants, criminal behavior, and terrorism have intensified, giving rise to concerns regarding the American migrant system’s efficacy in maintaining the safety of the nation’s people. Recent events revolving around crimes, weaponry crossing national boundaries and foreign- born people has triggered a series of reactions with the most intense ones demanding a sealing of borders, barring migration for individuals hailing from high- risk foreign territories, and putting a stop to refugee resettlement. Theory of Migration Migration represents mankind’s story from the outset to the current age. It has its roots in… Continue Reading...

Confidentiality Breaches & Informed Consent when Testing New Drugs

For instance, while explaining to the family the reason a mother who is lactating is not breastfeeding, it is almost impossible not to disclose her status to her significant others. Mark Siegler, Chicago physician-ethicists wrote an essay ‘Confidentiality in medicine-a decrepit concept” highlighting that patient confidentiality that has been taught from the Hippocrates era is dead. The battle is significantly between providing quality care and ensuring the patient’s confidentiality. In the current medical scene, the best care is provided in teaching highly staffed hospitals and necessitates role-playing by a significant number of nonmedical hospital… Continue Reading...

Parents Sexuality and the Psychoanalysis or Psychodynamic

From a modern day vantage point, the psychodynamic approach is only partly true. Of course the mother has a tremendous impact on the development of the child. Yet many children grow up without mothers and thrive, and many have distant or even abusive mothers and also learn to cope. Coping with stress due to abandonment or abuse is a complex issue. Psychological resilience depends on personality factors, and the presence of positive role models or resources that can help the individual to process the experience instead of developing any type of neurosis or mental illness. The role of the… Continue Reading...

Anthropological Observations at a Salad Bar

The people I spoke with suggested that people are aware of these contradictions and there is a certain amount of guilt inherent to eating at Whole Foods in the first place. There is guilt about spending so much money on food and also guilt about the exclusive image of Whole Foods and its obsession with very high-end, luxury commodities. However, the number of advantages conveyed by eating at the salad bar, both socially… Continue Reading...

Ultimately, the Tates adopted him. His adoptive parents introduced him to a miserable life full of acute emotional, sexual and physical abuse, and neglect. He eventually stood up to them and his defiance caused him to get thrown out. He then moved for a short while to a male shelter, got embroiled in a crime which killed his childhood best-friend (another abandonment, in his opinion), and… Continue Reading...

Educational Leadership and the Wisdom Of Proverbs

phrases intended to encourage the reader to honor his or her father and mother and to place wisdom over riches and worldly success. The book as a whole is a reminder to cherish the important, simple lessons of life. The lessons conveyed by the book are both religious and ethical in nature. One idea which comes to mind when reading the book is that rather than talent, sometimes simply the willingness to be kind, to show up on time, and to behave in an estimable manner is more important. From an educator’s perspective, all of the lessons of the… Continue Reading...

Reminiscing on My Teens

I learned from my father. He was always supportive of my mother in almost all of her pursuits. For instance, if she tried a new hairstyle, put on or lost weight, or tried a new occupation, he was always encouraging and supportive. In relationships in which I care about the other person, I try to do the same. Actually, this trait which I developed from my family during my adolescence is demonstrative of some of the concepts Piaget advanced regarding cognitive development theory. Although this theory is applicable to children before they are teenagers, there are still some core… Continue Reading...

Deepak Chopra Book Path Of Love

not just individuals, but whole communities. Love is far beyond romance, even beyond the connection between mother and child. In The Path to Love, Chopra helps readers distinguish between the superficialities of human relationships and the deeper, underlying love that translates to compassion, kindness, and selflessness Love that is selfish and tied to conditions is not true love at all: something that most readers understand on an intellectual level. Chopra shows genuine love is something that is utterly simple but transcendent: a sense of reconnection with one’s spiritual self. Connecting with one’s own spiritual nature makes it possible to recognize… Continue Reading...

Snapping Beans by Lisa Parker

Q1. How does the grandmother’s world differ from the speaker's at school? What details especially reveal those differences? The poem “Snapping Beans” by Lisa Parker draws a distinct contrast between the world of the speaker’s grandmother and her life in school. The poem focuses on a very physical image, that of the speaker helping her grandmother snap beans into a silver bowl after she has come home to her southern, childhood home after going to school in the North. Her grandmother’s world is focused on faith and a very uncritical form of Christianity, as can be seen in her grandmother’s… Continue Reading...

Margaret Newman's Theory Of Health

by a disease. She drew on her own personal experiences (for instance, her care for her mother) to find the answer. What she found was that while “health” in a physical sense might be impossible, “health” in a mental sense was entirely possible. This served as the basis for her concept of “health” as the expansion of consciousness—i.e., the idea of being healthy in the mind if not in the body (Newman, 1994). Newman’s theory brought simplicity to the concept of health and has allowed patients to come to grips with their condition in the sense that they can… Continue Reading...

Crime and Punishment in the American Colonies

American colonies began to gain a reputation as dangerous places filled with wanton violence, far more so than the mother Country. However, it is worthy to reflect that one of the greatest crimes of the colonial period in the eyes of modernity was not actually treated as a crime at all, namely the existence of slavery. During the earlier colonial era, slavery was a relatively transient state, and there were what could be considered legal white slaves in the form of indentured servants. During the late colonial period, slavery became a racialized category and Black African slaves became a… Continue Reading...

In other words, human kind is taking more than it is giving back from mother Nature, and this will have a destabilizing effect on the environment that can be dangerous for all life on the planet—plants, animals and humans alike. However, Lomborg (2001) takes the opposing position and asserts that human kind is not dangerously impacting the environment—though he once believed it was. In his article, Lomborg addresses the main points raised by Brown—namely that natural resources are running out, the population is growing too rapidly and consuming too much, the natural balance off… Continue Reading...

Social Construction Theories on Serial Killers

greatly offended after discovering his ‘supposed’ elder sister was, in truth, his mother. This negative familial attachment led to him becoming one among the most infamous serial murderers in America (Hickey, 2013). Labelling Theory In labeling theory, aberrant conduct is considered a process whereby an individual progresses from primary to secondary deviancy. Labeling theorists label the initial aberrant act, whose origins differ significantly, as primary deviance. This labeling as a ‘deviant’ carries the delinquent along a social process involving negative exchanges with society, ultimately engendering aggression and bitterness in the criminal. Consequently, the criminal act against society by reacting… Continue Reading...

Alfred Hitchcock Film Psycho Analysis

The “ mother” of all other horror movies, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho transformed the directorial, cinematographic, and narrative style of cinema (“Psycho - How Alfred Hitchcock Manipulates An Audience”). Especially in the way Hitchcock attempted to involve the audience directly by creating a subjective, unreliable narrator, it was possible to generate the intense suspense and tension that permeates the film. As a result, viewers place themselves into Marian’s shoes. Even though Hitchcock uses editorial cuts at the beginning the viewer is led into it as one long scene, as… Continue Reading...

Babies Born from Transplanted Uteruses Ethics

suffering many women feel when they are unable to become a biological mother. Both utilitarian and deontological arguments support the use of transplanted uteruses as a viable assisted reproductive technology. Deontology promotes the duty of the healthcare worker to support patient autonomy and individual choice. Utilitarian ethics show how the technology creates the greatest good for the greatest number, and maximizes the happiness of the patient and the patient’s family. In sum, the rewards outweigh the risks. Against The first argument against uterine transplant births is safety. To host the transplanted uterus, the mother must take immunosuppressant drugs, which… Continue Reading...

Her lack of sleep or difficulty sleeping and a general lack of interest in life are her body\'s adaptive responses (Morey et al., 2010).

My Papa’s Waltz Poem Analysis

and then “waltz me off to bed,” (lines 13; 15). The mother is only mentioned once, in the second stanza of the poem. Like the speaker, she is totally disempowered. She can only stand around and watch while her son and her husband “romped until the pans / Slid from the kitchen shelf,” (lines 5-6). In this scene, Roethke clearly segregates the male and female domains: the mother is mentioned in the same space as the kitchen because the kitchen is the wife’s domain. Although the wife serves in her domestic duties, she defers to the will of the… Continue Reading...

Preventing School Shootings

family life had deteriorated to a dangerous low: his father had left, his mother was incapable of providing the son with the guidance he needed; Adam resented his parents because of their divorce and was increasingly alienated and prescribed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) to help his mood. In many shootings, the shooters themselves have a history of being prescribed SSRIs, and it should be worth looking into as to whether or not these drugs themselves have a risk in destabilizing a person’s mind. Not much is yet known about the high school shooter in Florida—but the details that… Continue Reading...

Intimate Relationships in Britain

basic bond between two people—the bond that allows them to become a mother and father, husband and wife, “two in one flesh”—is reduced to nothing. In other words, a culture that is completely materialistic and narcissistic will reject matrimony and monogamy as the only authentic form of intimacy—and the end result will be the decay of civilization. Bauman’s (2003) is very useful in showing why modern relationships tend to be stagnant: they are engendered by individuals who are materialistic and self-seeking.

as early as the fetal stage, with maternal dietary and lifestyle choices impacting the development of the fetus. The mother’s dietary and lifestyle choices also impact the infant’s feeding and later, the child’s overall nutritional and exercise regime. The results of this study show that it is not just behaviorism and modeling that can influence children; the physiological responses of a child will vary depending on parental feeding and lifestyle habits. Genetic factors may also predispose some children for obesity, making it essential that parents are aware of what they can do to prevent their children from becoming overweight.… Continue Reading...

Style and Effect in Movie Get out

helpless state. Chris is made to feel guilty for not doing anything to help his dying mother (though there was nothing he could have done). Using this leverage, the white villainess cudgels the black hero into a state of psychological submission that mirrors the submissive state of the other black characters in the film who have had their minds replaced by the brains of white people. The scene is emblematic of the film as a whole because it pits antagonist against protagonist in a one-on-one that reveals specific traits about each one. Underneath Missy’s calm and collected demeanor is… Continue Reading...

The Godfather Trilogy Analysis

daughter Mary whose name carries a spiritual significance, as Mary is the mother of God in the Catholic religion, which is Michael’s religion. The film’s narrative suggests that in losing his own daughter Mary, he is now better positioned to be with his spiritual mother Mary, who had to suffer the death of her Son that people like Michael might find forgiveness and be redeemed. It is a complex allegorically stunning ending to the trilogy that weaves violence, religion, honor, redemption, and suffering all into one final climactic scene on the staircase—itself a symbol of movement from one stage… Continue Reading...

Should Businesses Offer Paid Maternity Leave

role in society, especially in the early days of when a child is born: the mother is the nurturer, the consoler, the shelter, and the provider. The mother’s bond with the newborn is effected over the first few weeks that the child is alive and this bond plays a significant role in the development of the child over the course of time. As society is always dependent upon well developed persons for the sake of its own future, the benefits of maternity leave can easily be premised upon this point. Paid maternity leave allows the mother to take care… Continue Reading...

Especially when the child is from a different cultural background or who has already established a mother tongue, homosexual couples who adopt expand their cross-cultural awareness and that of their communities too. Gay and lesbian couples who adopt from international agencies have the opportunity to engage in cross-cultural communication throughout their lives, which may inspire their friends to do the same. The adoption process brings together couples from around the world to engage in community service, as when a couple adopts they may also forge bonds with orphanages and other organizations in developing countries.

he says that he tries to avoid relying on necessity to be the mother of invention. In other words, he will try to perfect a solution or fix a problem right away and will not wait until there is a major crisis or problem. He feels that this is a competitive advantage for him given that he acts when there is the chance rather than waiting for a problem and he is in an industry and business size realm that allows for quick adjustments and changes (Radovic, 2013).

To Kill a Mockingbird Essay

Atticus needs her the most, during the middle. She is a replacement for the Finch family’s mother figure. Calpurnia was the mother figure, however, Aunt Alexandra’s arrival marked a change, especially for Scout. Unlike Calpurnia, who allows Scout to be a tomboy and express herself how she wants, Aunt Alexandra wants Scout to be more feminine and adhere to the expectations of society. “Aunt Alexandra's great passions include maintaining the Finch family reputation and presiding at missionary teas where the society ladies of Maycomb fret over the native Mruna tribe and other unfortunates.” (Meyer 91) Still, as difficult the… Continue Reading...

Antimicrobial Agents

Introduction: Antimicrobial Agents Although they are often over-prescribed, antimicrobial agents are a critical defense against microbial infections. The sources of microbial infections include bacteria, viruses, funguses, and parasites. Therefore, the key categories of antimicrobial pharmaceutical agents are antibiotics, antifungals, antiprotozoal, and antiviral drugs. Sometimes the terms antibiotic, antimicrobial, and anti-infective are used interchangeably, but it is crucial to differentiate between the type of infection in order to choose the appropriate antimicrobial agent (Leekha, Terrell, & Edson, 2011, p. 156). Incorrect treatment can lead to deleterious results including resistance. There are several different ways to classify antimicrobial agents, and likewise, different… Continue Reading...

China Mao and the Cultural Revolution

the book; the first two sections are devoted to telling the story of her grandmother Yu-Fang and her mother Bao Qin. Instead of writing a straight autobiography, Chang chose to begin her story two generations back—the purpose being to provide not only personal historical context but also a sense of the cultural historical context in which her family came into being. By beginning the book with the statement that her grandmother “became the concubine of a warlord general” at the age of fifteen, Chang immediately gives her story a sweeping, grand epic backdrop: she is no mere commoner of… Continue Reading...

Health Concerns Involving Breast Cancer

Breast cancer forms the second largest cause of deaths from cancer in American women. In the year 2015, roughly 232,000 women, mostly between 55 and 64 years of age, showed positive cancer diagnoses, with 40,000 succumbing to the disease. The median breast cancer-linked mortality age is 68 years. The US PSTF (Preventive Services Task Force) advises all females aged between 50 and 74 years to undergo screening mammography once every two years. Women may individually even decide to commence screening mammography before turning fifty. Those who set greater store by the potential advantages as compared to disadvantages of screening can… Continue Reading...

Dolci and the Counter Reformation

told her he would give her whatever she wanted; then, at the urging of her mother who had been condemned by St. John for her incestuous relationship with Herod, Salome asked for St. John’s head on a platter. Thus, her story is encapsulated in Dolci’s use of lighting: he reminds his contemporaries (who undoubtedly would have been very familiar with her story) of her charms. Her gown is low cut and her shoulders are bare—a symbol of lasciviousness. Her alabaster neck shines like a light and her soft face and cheeks check the total disinterest seen in her eyes.… Continue Reading...

The purpose of Durst in writing the article was to highlight Day Nursery Movement in America and show how women worked together to help one another at a critical time in Progressive America.… Continue Reading...

The Relevance Of Anthropology Today

The Usefulness of Anthropology in a Globalized Society In his seminal text, The Naked Ape, Desmond Morris examines the biological basis for modern human behaviors in urban settings, and makes the point that some of the more baffling ways that people act today can be traced to evolutionary responses to the exigencies of the prehistoric environment. Since its publication in 1967, this anthropological analysis has been followed by a growing body of scholarship concerning evolution and ecological principles and their implications for modern society (Dunaif-Harris, 1987). Today, the concept of gender is undergoing increased scrutiny and notions such as pansexuality… Continue Reading...

Symbolism in My Papa's Waltz

imagery is that of a young family that was struggling with this violence – mentioning the pans and the mother brings up a cliché of a woman grabbing a weapon to defend herself against the drunk man beating her. Words like beat, knuckles and buckle all directly conjur up the images of abuse, but are used in more of an indirect context here. But they are symbols of abuse, which combined with the metaphor of the dance, convey the narrator's pain. The thematic message is the struggled that the boy has to still live his father, even when the… Continue Reading...

Women Empowerment in Iran

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

a wealthy woman. She is potentially vulnerable to both of their advances as she has no brothers or mother to protect her, but at the beginning of the story, it is implied that Crane is more likely to be successful because of his status as schoolmaster. A schoolmaster is deemed to have “vastly superior taste and accomplishments to the rough country swains, and, indeed, inferior in learning only to the parson” (Irving). On the other hand, Crane lacks the strength and cleverness of Van Brunt and at the end of the fateful story, Crane is dejected because he must… Continue Reading...

Kraft Foods Canada Targeting the Millennials

Problem Definition Until now, Kraft has rested its marketing strategy for its processed cheese slices on the traditional demographic of Canadian families. As the millennial market grew, the need to reposition Kraft singles became immediately apparent. Moreover, the market for processed cheese itself had been falling and millennials tended towards products that reflected wellness and healthy food—the antithesis of what processed cheese offers. Kraft therefore finds itself in a position of needing to rebrand one of its most iconic products, making Kraft Singles relevant to millennial moms—and their children. Kraft Singles promotes four core brand attributes overall: health, nutrition, taste,… Continue Reading...

Charlotte Perkins Gilman “the Yellow Wallpaper”

reasons than she is conflicted about her role as a woman and mother with aspirations for a life outside of the home. Although the narrator occasionally mentions the existence of her baby, it is given relatively little importance in the story. Her attitude towards motherhood may be reflective of the fact that when Gilman was writing, it was still largely unavoidable for most married women, given that birth control methods other than abstinence were largely ineffective (Anderson). Although there were options for women who wished to have pain-free childbirth, giving birth was still a very risky proposition for many… Continue Reading...

Algeria France and the Mersault Investigtion

were not for The Stranger, Harun would not have the opportunity to tell his brother’s story that of his mother, or that of his people. Allusions to The Stranger are therefore straightforward and earnest, even if they seem contradictory or paradoxical. For Harun, it is not only possible but also necessary to engage with The Stranger and all it represents for Algerian society because only through this challenging discourse is it possible to rectify the mistakes of the past and contend with the difficulties of constructing a new postcolonial identity. The facts of the case, that “a Frenchman kills… Continue Reading...

The Role Media Plays in Relation to Gender Stereotypes

Introduction By being born a man or a woman signals to bearing certain clear sexual characteristics. Socialization takes individuals through a path that inculcates certain norms and codes of conduct depending on whether one is born a male or a female. In other words, the rules that one adopts and follows are guided by whether they are biologically male or female. Therefore, one’s communication, expression and behavior is shaped by the preexisting cultural and social norms including non-verbal language. Consequently, people’s behavior may differ because they are shaped by cultural and social norms from varying socio-ethnic and cultural setups. All… Continue Reading...

Muslim Women in Eastern and Western Literature

husbands or the primacy they put on being a mother. This is a lucid example of the traditional dogma towards women and femininity as it appears in Middle eastern literature. Most notably, in the Qur’an, Aisha who was one of the wives of the prophet Mohammad encompasses a truly powerful and independent role of much influence. Aisha was highly visible and took on a very influential role during her time in Muhammad’s life. Aisha accompanied Muhammad to the early Islamic battles, and following Muhammad’s death she opposed Ali’s rise to the caliphate” (Ujayli, 18). It’s also important to note… Continue Reading...

Nyong’o has both the Mexican and Kenyan influences in her life and spent time growing up in both nations, though she did attend college in the United States. Thus, one could argue that the forces of Mexican, Kenyan and American cultures have helped to shape her cultural identity. One could posit that this is in part why she’s been able to so effortlessly able to play characters that have such rich cultural heritages and diverse backgrounds.  Cultural Identity Theory Cultural identity theories… Continue Reading...

Satire in Knox's Chicken Bucket

on a crash course with destiny—which, in Knox’s takedown of modern America, is marriage to her mother’s boyfriend Rick. Cassie trades the traditional, modest and mainly innocent culture of the 4-H for the whirlwind lifestyle of a modern teen straight out of an MTV-style Real World catastrophe where the main starlets are undoubtedly bound for a Jerry Springer type of denouement by the time they hit age 17. Cassie is just embarking on her life as a young adult—but not in a way that would be recognizably suitable if judged by any traditional mores or standards. For this reason,… Continue Reading...

He demonstrated great bravery. Following the murder of his family, he was part of the band of Apache sent to take revenge for the slaughter. The Mexican soldiers were firing at the attacking Apache, but Geronimo did not even flinch—it was as though he were possessed with an internal fury.

Digital Culture

Digital Culture 1 How do information and information sharing impact the digital culture of today’s world? This question can best be answered by understanding the ways in which today’s digital culture uses information. Grassegger and Krogerus note that Big Data is the big elephant in the digital room: this is the collection of information on every Internet user on the planet, stored and provided so that today’s advertisers can market their organization’s products exclusively to Internet browsers. Those ads that pop up everywhere you go, no matter what type of site you’re on, that seem to know exactly what type… Continue Reading...

How Immigrants Deal with Discrimination

Race, Class, and the Immigrant Experience Introduction Jose Angel N.’s “Illegal: Reflections of an Undocumented Immigrant” is a tale of an undocumented migrant whose circumstances typify the influence of the migration policy issue in shaping illegal migrants’ lives. Though the author earns upward economic and social mobility by doggedly pursuing education, his life is characterized by a shaky personal and legal limbo which serves to eclipse his occupational and academic successes. This stance definitely doesn’t convince all audiences of the need for a more empathetic immigration policy. In the end, the book might best function as a fine accompaniment to… Continue Reading...

Postpartum Depression and Gilman Yellow Wallpaper

of “The Yellow Wallpaper” could not easily express discontent with their position as wife and mother. The narrator’s husband—a physician—believes there is “nothing the matter” with his wife except “temporary nervous depression” and “a slight hysterical tendency,” (Gilman 648). Noting her brother is also a physician, the narrator exclaims, “But what is one to do,” when one is just a woman, and therefore a subordinate whose total financial and social dependency on their male counterparts precludes their self-determination (Gilman 649). To address her “hysteria,” the narrator’s husband and brother confine her to a pleasant enough country home, but restrict… Continue Reading...

link such teams to the priorities and the resources of the mother organization. There are several challenges spanning from figuring out and planning how the tasks can be accomplished to identifying who will carry out the said tasks. One of the options that can help clarify the course of action and the layout of the action plan is an organizational chart. It is evident that when there is a structure, it offers a clear direction whenever there is confusion as a result of overlapping functions and closely interrelated setups that are subtly distinct (Cowen, et al., 2008, p. 417).… Continue Reading...

Body Mind and Soul in the Cancer Ward Wit

Body, Mind, and Soul in the Cancer Ward Margaret Edson’s Wit dramatizes the death of a literature professor from cancer. The play is designed to show the limits of the intellect to fully understand human tragedy and existence. Although the central protagonist Professor Vivian Bearin was a rigorous academic fluent in the works of John Donne when she was healthy, ultimately the fact her old English professor is able to provide her comfort during her dying moments by reading a children’s book provides her the greatest solace more than her philosophy and more than intellectualism. Bearin embarked upon an academic… Continue Reading...

The Tom Story in Mudbound

The Tom Story Both Mudbound (2017) and Detroit (2017) seem to mobilize “the Tom story” in ways that seem significantly interesting and different to me. Neither film, for instance, really makes the viewer feel a kind of self-righteousness from a distance—at least not in the way that Williams describes occurs in To Kill a Mockingbird. In the novel, the reader can comfortably shake the head at the treatment of the innocent black man. In the film Mudbound and the film Detroit, the viewer is really too caught up in the horror and the nightmare of what is happening in the… Continue Reading...

Effective Treatment for Veterans with Ptsd

If there is one at-risk population that goes underserved it is the veteran population suffering from PTSD. As the most recent VA study shows, every day up to 20 veterans commit suicide because they are not finding the help they need to deal with their trauma-related issues (Military Times, 2016). Helping veterans to receive treatment is not easy, however, as there are a number of obstacles that get in the way—from the stigma of being seen as one suffering from a mental or emotional disorder to the problem of isolation, or PTSD being masked by other symptoms such as alcoholism… Continue Reading...

Down Syndrome is caused by a disruption in the 21st chromosome: the cell of this chromosome abnormally divides; the result is that more genetic material is developed than is needed and that can negatively impact the features of the child and the development of the child’s cognitive abilities in some cases. While Trisomy 21, or three full copies of chromosome 21, is most commonly the cause… Continue Reading...

Sue Monk Kidd's Invention Of Wings Literary Analysis

activist. To tell the story, Kidd uses the black triangles that Handful’s mother stitches into her quilts to symbolize flight and freedom; likewise, the feathers that Handful and her mother collect to stuff the quilt symbolize the spiritual wings with which one can fly to freedom. Kidd also applies the theme of power in both positive and negative terms: Sarah’s trauma at witnessing the brutality of slavery causes her to develop a stutter, which gives her a degree of powerlessness in terms of speaking her mind; likewise, her youth as a child prevents her from having much power in… Continue Reading...

Performance Management and Non Profit Boards

members are diversely wild, for instance, one of the staff members is the mother of the board’s chair and reports to the director. Additionally, the board is both an advisory and governing body (Wash, 2002). Just as Nazareth Enterprise, Citizens of Conservation – an activity based not-for profit firm – is also well placed to benefit from cost control for each of their activities. Though an audit, the firm would establish processes that should be improved on and their priorities. It is also noted that Citizens of Conservation do not have a clear mission, which complicates their performance management.… Continue Reading...

The mother in “The Rocking Horse Winner” is like Bill Hutchinson in “The Lottery,” even though the latter could have prevented his wife’s death. B. Tessie and Paul are both sacrificial lambs, although Tessie does realize the stupidity of the social rules governing the community. III. The authors use irony to anchor the theme, and make their short stories more poignant. A. “The Lottery” is ironic in the way rigidity is juxtaposed with a desire to change. B. “The Rocking Horse Winner” is ironic in that Paul rides a fake… Continue Reading...

Phenomenological Design

For example, “Phenomenological research would ask a question such as, ‘What is it like for a mother to live with a teenage child who is dying of cancer?’” versus a quantitative research study which would use evidence-based data to determine the most effective treatment (or a different qualitative approach such as an ethnography, which might examine a cultural approach to death and dying) (Nieswiadomy & Bailey, 2017, p.173). However, phenomenological study can be applied to fields outside of healthcare. A good example of phenomenological study in business might be examining different consumers’ perceptions of marketing or… Continue Reading...

Muller V Oregon 1908

Muller v. Oregon In Muller v. Oregon (1908), the Supreme Court of the United States “upheld an Oregon law limiting the workday for female wage earners to ten hours” (The Oregon Encyclopedia, 2018). The issue under consideration was whether the passage of laws by states to protect workers was permitted by the Constitution. The evidence presented by Brandeis, a lawyer acting for the state, clearly demonstrated that women’s health was negatively affected by long hours of work. On this basis, “the court concurred on the grounds that society had an interest in protecting the bodies of potential mothers, whom the… Continue Reading...

Introduction Rosada “Rose” Faust is my 91 year-old grandmother who was born in Lexington, Georgia in 1927 to Aron Huff and Jhonnie Huff. Rose readily agreed to participate in the life review interview, an opportunity that offered both of us a time to reflect on her legacy.

The life review process also illuminates the different concepts of legacy. For Rose, her legacy has clearly been her family and the love she shares with… Continue Reading...

Concept Map Of a Nursing Ethical Dilemma

responsibility for the care and health of the patient as their loved on. For instance, a mother will feel responsible for making sure her child is well. A second reason is the failure to understand the prevailing medical procedures required by the patient. More often than not, families do not believe that some medical situations cannot be solved. They always anticipate a medical miracle for the doctors and therefore when given the option of providing palliative care at the patient’s end of life, it become a difficult thing to accept. Third, there is also the endeavor of not losing… Continue Reading...

Crew advertisement showing a boy’s nails being painted pink, a mother blogging about her gender-nonconforming son, and even a sister who simply had a brother who liked to use her Easy Bake Oven, quite often these cases still affirm gender norms in the manner in which they are presented. Even people who claim to wish to allow children to be themselves are shown as engaging in reluctant resignation or using the child’s actions as affirming their liberal values in a self-congratulatory manner. Actions such as boys choosing to wear dresses, pink, or… Continue Reading...

Amy Tan and Maxine Hong Kingston

most famous work is likely The Joy Luck Club, which focuses on mother-daughter relationships within the Chinese American subculture. The emphasis on mother-daughter relationships stresses the significance of gender to identity construction. Likewise, Maxine Hong Kingston focuses mainly on gender issues in The Woman Warrior. Both Tan and Kingston show how patriarchal norms impact identity and demonstrate different ways Asian women subvert or challenge those patriarchal norms. Tan is especially cognizant of the role that generational differences play, as the characters in The Joy Luck Club change their attitudes and outlooks to reflect corresponding shifts in American society. In… Continue Reading...

Women's Roles During World War Ii

World War 2 Women World War 2 offered unprecedented opportunities for American women to take up jobs that were previously reserved for men, especially in the defense industry. Before 1940, women were only allowed to work in traditionally female professions like typing or sewing, and they were expected to leave when they gave birth or got married (Anderson). However, World War 2 changed all this and women were allowed to enter into the labor force. Women were mainly taking up the positions that were left vacant by the departing soldiers. World War 2 resulted in many women taking jobs in… Continue Reading...

I also learned about the congenital Hirschsprung’s disease – a condition in which the intestines’ ganglion cells don’t migrate fully throughout the person’s gut, leading to obstruction and evacuation issues (Hopkins et.al 2017). This congenitally- determined ailment is diagnosed using samples taken from the patient’s rectum, where the illness begins. The patient I witnessed suffering from this… Continue Reading...

Alice Walker’s “everyday Use” and Individual Identity

Mama is a woman who has grown up poor, tough, but also very deferential to white people, because of the profound societal injustices she has endured. “Who can even imagine me looking a strange white man in the eye? It seems to me I have talked to them always with one foot raised in flight, with my head fumed in whichever way is farthest from them” (Walker 1). In contrast, her other daughter Dee is brave, goes away to… Continue Reading...

The Culture Of Minority Tribes Of Bangladesh

The Bangladesh culture and minority affairs The minority tribes of Bangladesh have over the years faced numerous systemic and traditional challenges. These minority tribes have been scattered on the hilly parts of Bangladesh particularly in the districts of Rangpur, Dinajpur, Rajshahi, Mymensigh, Sylhet and Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHTs). The known groups under this minority category are the Chakmas, marmas, Marungs, Chaks, Bowns, Pankoos among other tribes. The basic human rights of these groups are violated often. These violations are perpetrated by private companies and even the government agencies and if not then state agencies fail to conclusively investigate the violations.… Continue Reading...

Bangladesh and Its Connection to the World

Bangladeshis’ identity during that era included a focus on the significance of Bangla, the people’s mother tongue, as well as the uniqueness of the lifestyle and culture associated with the region’s floodplains (Bangladesh, 2018). Bangla constitutes the most salient symbol of Bangladeshi national identity. Its flag, dark green with an off-center red circle, holds the following meaning: green stands for the country’s fields and trees whereas red is symbolic of sun rise and the martyrs of the 1971 independence struggle. The Bangladeshi national anthem, derived from Bengali Nobel prize-winning writer, Rabindranath Tagore’s poem, connects the love for the land… Continue Reading...

Peer Responses on Different Subjects

Assignment 1 Reply to Guy I have met someone who believed that the moon landing was fake, and yet I did not listen to their arguments. Reading these specific arguments now clarifies why some people might believe that the moon landing was fake. If these people did not believe the photographic evidence, they are actually thinking critically. Ironically, though, too much skepticism can be as irrational as too little. Personally I think that it would be impossible to have manufactured a fake moon landing without any reporter or government spy having noticed. The moon landing did take place during the… Continue Reading...

Clinical Interviewing Skills and Techniques in Social Work

Clinical Interviewing as a Social Worker Part A The importance of effective clinical interviewing revolves around being able to establish a certain level of trust with the client. Essentially, the goal of the social worker is to get to the heart of the problem and to elucidate truth. It’s very difficult to get people to share honestly if they feel guarded or feel as though they are being judged. A presentation given at Minnesota State University at Moorhead found that the following personality traits are most crucial to clients when it comes to having a social worker: understanding, compassionate, pleasant,… Continue Reading...

The Artistic Appeal Of a Clock

Mahogany Edwardian Mantel Clock Purpose My mother’s mahogany Edwardian mantel clock, which is a real antique, exhibits the artistic purpose of aesthetic communication, as described by Sporre (2014). The clock is constructed in the Edwardian style and thus communicates the aesthetic that was popular during the Edwardian Era—i.e., the first decade of the 20th century. Its rounded, elegant features and symmetrical design communicate a harmonious sense of time and its fullness. The clock hearkens back to an era when the world seemed a calmer place full of creativity, order, elegance and charm. Looking at the clock,… Continue Reading...

Why Americans Should Get More Paid Maternity Leave

opportunity to work from home. Contract and temporary positions that fill the role of the new mother can easily be filled. Yet major American corporations, from Walmart to Starkbucks, have unjust and irrational policies that provide zero paid maternity leave days for new mothers (or fathers) who work as baristas and other lower-paid positions, even though its white collar workers in senior management receive between twelve and eighteen weeks of paid leave (May 1). Even for senior management moms, eighteen weeks is insufficient to address all the needs new moms and babies have: from the all-important emotional bonding to… Continue Reading...

It is important to note, from the onset, that breast cancer has been identified as one of the leading causes of death amongst women across the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – CDC (2018), without taking into consideration some skin cancer types, breast cancer is not only “the most common cancer in women” in the United States, but also “the second most common cause of death from cancer among white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and the American Indian/Alaska Native women.” The… Continue Reading...

Infancy and Toddler Development

is the child’s immediate social and physical environment. The mother tends to be the child’s source of security and the child grows in confidence through connection to the mother. Between the ages of one and two the child is like a “young scientist,” according to Piaget in the sense that the child explores and demonstrates cognitive development (Thomas, Warner & Foster, 2000). According to Freud, the child is developing a sense of pleasure, first through oral stimulation which is connected to feeding initially but also through relief by way of bowel movements and urination. According to Erickson, the child… Continue Reading...

He learned that everybody is trying to survive, you know? That’s just how it is—why hurt somebody intentionally? Just let it go and make do.” Her awareness of this deep level of empathy impressed me and I considered that her understanding of the character, the problems of the novel, and the vocabulary words all indicated that she was a very advanced reader. I next conducted a miscue analysis using oral reading… Continue Reading...

The Housing Crisis and Insecurity and Poverty in America

Matthew Desmond addresses the intersection between race, class, and gender in Evicted. The case studies Desmond uses take place in Wisconsin, which serves effectively as a microcosm for the United States. While the overarching issues Desmond discusses can be one of the book’s main draws, it is the details in each of the stories that compels readers to take action or learn more about issues like institutionalized poverty, institutionalized racism, the perpetuation of the housing crisis, and systematic economic exploitation. The people Desmond profiles lack the power to stimulate change, and yet through collective action and self-empowerment it becomes possible… Continue Reading...

Bronson’s mother stands up in Pastor Moss’s church and reads a letter that her son sent home to her: the contents of the letter reveal the story of a young black man who has learned to fend for himself and serve as a soldier in the U.S. Army. Bronson is depicted on film as living the true American life, fighting for the country, playing sports, meeting a woman, firing weapons, and doing all things patriotic. In the film, he serves as… Continue Reading...

Cabg Surgery Plan Of Care

Interdisciplinary Care Providers CABG or coronary artery bypass graft surgery is advised for individuals suffering from CHD (coronary heart disease), for alleviating symptoms, prolonging lifespan, and improving QOL (quality of life) (Bayoumi, 2015). Improvements in mechanical ventilation-supported cardiac operation patient management continues to be a major focus area for better optimizing clinical results. The FTE (fast-track extubation) theory applied in case of cardiac operation patients is growing in popularity, in a bid to offer more economical and superior-quality healthcare. A large number of research works have established that prompt extubation (i.e., between 6 and 8 hours after surgery) may be a safe… Continue Reading...

Nazi Literature Pre Oppression Subordination

In me magical fluids are flowing. / The giant has touched his mother again, / And new powers in him are growing,” (Heine Chapter 1). The protagonist is making fun of the exaggerated, hyperbolic love of the Fatherland that permeates and pervades the trend towards Nazi, Teutonic, Germanic self-love. Heine’s speaker uses metaphors and imagery laden with symbolism and meaning, like the “scissors of amputation,” (Chapter 26). The increasingly self-expressive and flamboyant hero of “Berlin Diary” speaks of the “mysterious totem devices” and the “heroic semi-nudity” of the gay street culture in the titular city (Isherwood 304). Likewise, the… Continue Reading...

explains that she was not made, but “…plucked by her mother off the bush of wild roses that grew by the prison-door” (Hawthorne, 167), at face value this just seems to embody the wild and uncanny nature that is Pearl. However, the issue with this statement is we don’t know where Pearl came up with it: she may have come up with it on her own, or it may be something that Hester told her symbolically—or it might be something that she just sensed and inferred. This notion speaks to the spiritual core of humanity and the existence of… Continue Reading...

Hip-hop and Misogyny: Rewriting the Narrative Of Hip-hop Essay

Drake shows the ability of women seek an education, mother a child, run a company, and even dress in an elegant rather than sexually provocative manner as attractive rather than antithetical to Black male empowerment. The legacy of artists like Missy Elliot show that hip-hop as a method of cultural subversion for Black women as well as Black men can be the new reality. Old scripts can be reconfigured and rewritten. Getting Your Freak On: Elliot’s Challenge     One of the most notable concepts in hip-hop, dating back to the 1970s is that of freakiness.

Infancy and Toddlerhood S Developmental Stage Age Group

(Levinson, 1986). Especially important at this point (i.e. infancy) is the mother- baby relationship – the very first social bond one forms. Receptive mothers sensitive to the distinctive requirements of their baby will help cultivate a sound sense of self- worth within the baby, facilitating the development of a sound, all- round physical, emotional and psychological constitution, which happens between 0 and 18 months (Thomas et.al 2000). Babies experience a feeling of uncertainty/insecurity when it comes to the world they are born into. For resolving this insecurity, they rely on their mother (primary caregiver) to acquire stable, consistent care.… Continue Reading...

The family was not also aware of the fact that terminally ill patients refuse to eat and drink just as they are about to pass on. (Dreyer, Forde, & Nortvedt, 2009). Thus, the feeding tube idea was not at all a practical solution, but it just served to cool down the family. Emotions normally get out of hand during such moments, and so the family should be handled… Continue Reading...

Thus, the child would be absorbed into the world of commercialization at a young age, uniting childhood innocence and happiness not with any type of spiritual joy but rather with materialism. The child in the 80s toy commercial lived in a room surrounded by Toys ‘R’ Us products and rode a giant toy train… Continue Reading...

Media Depictions Of Gender Role Stereotypes

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

However, Mr. Swanson should have… Continue Reading...

New Media and Social Media

more noise. 2 I think the fact that Ross’s tragedy was made public so quickly as it happened was because Ross’s mother was used to being on social media. Her private life was her public life—there was no division. That is one of the problematic aspects of social media. It blurs the line between private and public. As Baym (2010) points out, “building new online relationships has been both touted and decried as a way for a person to ‘assemble his or her own electronic neighborhood’” (p. 35). Ross was simply assembling her electronic neighborhood, asking for prayers and then informing… Continue Reading...

Global health means the health issues that are not geographically contained and that no one country can handle them alone (Bradbury-Jones & Clark, 2017). As an answer to the global issues of health and globalization itself nurses have had to practice their profession in the context of emerging and new transnational situations (Bradbury-Jones… Continue Reading...

Young Children Impact Of Television Watching

to develop language abilities. More often than not, this requires slight changes in how the mother composes phrases and uses language. This is because they have to come down to be on the same level of understanding with the toddlers. Constant rephrasing by caregivers of any words uttered by children instills a language pattern in the memories of children, thus they are able to remember how to utter correct phrases in future. These techniques enhance proper language development in toddlers (Schmidt et al, 2008). The presence of TV in homes has been found to affect not only the quantity… Continue Reading...

examined religion, both discussed the influence of religious culture—but neither had a mystical sense. The Calvinist influence of Weber’s mother can be seen in his fascination with the bureaucracy. The Jewish influence of Durkheim’s family can be seen in his outside and “objective” view on society. Their own methodologies were not unimpacted by their own perspectives and experiences, a point Weber surely should have and no doubt did appreciate to some extent. Yet, in the end, both were negatively affected by WWI, and both were shattered by it and died within years of one another, Durkheim after losing a… Continue Reading...

Clean Water Crisis Introduction Every human being on earth necessitates at least 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water on an everyday basis for the purposes of drinking, cooking, and basically maintaining themselves to be clean. However, there is a significant need for clean water in countries. In the contemporary setting, statistics indicate that 1 in 9 individuals lack accessibility to clean and safe water (Water.org). There are 844 million people across the globe that are presently living without access to clean water. This lack of clean water has resulted in a health crisis as it causes diseases.

Interestingly, the brothers had ordered guns and ammunition “to be delivered to their home the day after their family was killed,” (Couri, 2016, p. 1). The brothers had, however, been plotting to kill their parents long before, with Robert apparently “planning to kill his parents since he was 13,” using weapons like… Continue Reading...

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

The Cbd Oil Craze

Abstract Cannabis contains more than one hundred and twenty distinct chemical compounds known collectively as cannabinoids. One of those canabinoids is cannabidol, commonly abbreviated and referred to as CBD. While CBD has no psychoactive properties, it may be beneficial for treating specific medical conditions including chronic pain. CBD can be used orally or topically. In its topical form, CBD is typically added to a carrier oil. Topical applications of CBD oils include the management of pain due to arthritis and inflammation. Research continues to mount suggesting the additional benefits of oral administration of CBD to treat epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, chronic… Continue Reading...

The American Revolution and Enlightenment Thought

Revolution, Constitution and Enlightenment The American Revolution and the ensuing U.S. Constitution put forward by the Federalists were both products of and directly informed by the European Enlightenment. The Founding Fathers were considerably influenced by thinkers like Locke, Voltaire, Rousseau and Montesquieu (whose separation of powers served as the model of the three-branched government of the U.S.). This paper will explain how the European Enlightenment set the stage for the American Revolution and U.S. Constitution by putting out the ideas that the Americans would use as the basis of the political and social foundation. The Enlightenment aka the Age of… Continue Reading...

Black Power and Black Feminism

Power, Inequality and Conflict The two theorists used in this paper to explore the theme of “power, inequality and conflict” are W. E. B. Du Bois and Patricia Hill Collins. The theme is one that gets to the heart of the struggle within the American Experience. The great attraction of the American Dream has always been that people are created equal and are endowed with a natural right to pursue life, liberty and happiness. For many minorities and marginalized persons in America, however, the Dream has a way of turning into a nightmare. Whether because of segregation, Jim Crow laws,… Continue Reading...

Neurofibromatosis

Introduction According to Gutmann et al. (2017) neurofibromatosis is a group of three conditions whereby tumors grow in the nervous system. These conditions are neurofibromatosis type I (NF1), neurofibromatosis type II (NF2), and schwannomatosis. It is considered to be a genetic disorder of the nervous system. Neurofibromatosis mainly affects the development and growth of nerve cell tissue. The tumors can develop anywhere in the nervous systems including spinal cord, brain, and nerves.

Schwannomatosis is the most recent and it… Continue Reading...

Romantic Love in Hamlet

Hamlet out of Love When Hamlet arrives home from school, he finds his father dead and his mother remarried to his uncle. Hamlet caustically remarks that “the funeral baked meats / Did coldly furnish forth the marriage tables” (1.2.87-88) to express his displeasure with his mother’s hasty re-marriage: Hamlet loved his father and believed his mother had as well. He expected there to be a longer period of grieving and was disappointed not to find one. A sense of his mother’s own fickleness and infidelity leads Hamlet to reject romantic love in general and to spurn his betrothed… Continue Reading...
