Guns in the Workplace

manufacturer, Weyerhaeuser, based in Seattle, sacked a number of its Oklahoma factory workers for violating the company-stipulated prohibition against keeping arms in their automobiles. This mass firing elicited a sharp outcry from gun-rights supporters such as the NRA (National Rifle Association). These groups assert that individuals bearing a firearms license must be able to access their guns in the event they are really needed, while traveling back and forth between their homes and workplaces. According to the NRA's executive VP, Wayne Lapierre, the fact that organizations can prohibit firearms in employee automobiles represents a serious blow to the Constitutional… Continue Reading...

Mcardie Estate Vs Cox

Mcardie Estate v. Cox case, by providing a case summary, comparison of exclusive professional practice scope and right to health care professionals' title, and protections for healthcare workings abiding by practice standards. Malpractice and neglect are perhaps the aspects most carefully covered by healthcare policymakers. Healthcare law may be considered distinctive in the legal sphere, as it is one subdivision that affords numerous scholarship approaches a chance to succeed (Jocelyn, et.al, 2002). Healthcare law is an interdisciplinary and dynamic domain, with numerous legal, scientific, economic, social, political and philosophical grounds for its dynamism. Case Summary McArdie Estate v. Cox was… Continue Reading...

History Of Government Intervention in Tobacco Markets

subsidies for their crops and the benefits of marijuana prohibition but in more decent decades they have also faced increasingly strict controls on the sale of tobacco products. Prior to the era of restrictive cigarette sales, and buoyed by subsidies, tobacco was one of the more lucrative products to farm in the United States, a situation that has changed of late. The most recent move on the part of the government was the Transitional Tobacco Payment Program, which as the name implies was intended to provide incentive for farmers to transition to other crops (Mccord, 2014). The moves on… Continue Reading...

Ethics and Moral Guidelines Criminal Justice

example is drug laws. Drugs can cause addiction, which can cause personal harm. Drug prohibition is designed to "protect" the individual by restricting his or her freedom to act. However, the greater ethical principle of freedom as well as privacy also needs to be respected. Criminalizing drug users by placing them in prison is more unethical than the use of drugs itself, which can be considered a morally neutral act. Week 3 -- Discussion 1 Policy is often drafted using general language, so that it can be applied to different situations. Using generalized language allows the policy to cover… Continue Reading...

Illinois V Rodriguez Case

Amendment forbids warrantless entry into an individual's home for arrest or search purposes, the prohibition is not applicable to situations where the police have obtained consent (Samaha, 2012). In Schneckloth v. Bustamonte (1973), the consent is regardless of whether it's from a person whose property is searched or from a third-party with common authority over the property as shown in U.S. v. Matlock (1974). Common authority essentially means mutual use of the premises by people with joint control or authority. Reference Samaha, J. (2012). Criminal procedure (8th ed.).

Medical Marijuana Growing in Butte County

purposes because of its strong fibrous tissue.1  It was not until the prohibition Era of the 1920s that marijuana began to be prohibited by law in the U.S.—and within a decade, it was regulated among most states under the Uniform State Narcotic Act.2  Thus, from its very first days as a crop grown by the Virginia Company for exporting to England by decree of James I—and in fact from the days of the first President of the U.S. George Washington growing hemp as one of his main farming crops—to now, whereupon marijuana is making a resurgence (if not for… Continue Reading...

Community Planning Methods That Involve Legalization Of Recreational Marijuana

any other activities surrounding its production and distribution. Despite the CSA prohibition staying in place, the Obama administration has taken steps to downscale prosecution of marijuana offenders at the federal level if they have complied with the state requirements. The federal government seems to be gradually listening to the intentions of the states that have intentions to legalize marijuana and, indeed those that have already instituted legal mechanisms to regulate the marijuana industry. It is possible that future administrations will change policy while ignoring the important question of federal enforcement unresolved. Implications of Policy Change The legalization of marijuana… Continue Reading...

Biblical Prophetic Literature and Hosea

of idolatry, specifically that of the "calf" at which the inhabitants of Samaria "tremble" despite the explicit prohibition of worshipping graven images in Exodus; the calf specifically recalls the idolatry of the golden calf while the Israelites were in exile in the deserts.[footnoteRef:1] The priests that "wail" over it are said to be idolatrous themselves, specifically underlining their worship of graven images but also the sense of despair reflected in Hosea as a text. The fact that the calf will be taken to Assyria may be read as a symbolic warning of Israel being conquered by that nation in… Continue Reading...

19th Amendment

Protestant and Catholic German constituencies. An operational model to suggest prohibition's superior significance as a dominant variable in comparison to turnout or partisanship among the general public explains sources of indirect and direct suffrage support, whilst also demonstrating educational commitment's impact in defining suffrage voting trends. With the exception of the West, suffrage resistance was stronger among the common people as compared to legislative elites. Amendment XIX's eventual success has been covered within the state-level voting context, in addition to America's transformed political atmosphere following its WWI entry and state governments' pioneering attempts at granting "presidential" suffrage, thus evading the… Continue Reading...

Feminist Perspective Of the Sex Industry

no longer an issue. [2: Scott A. Anderson, "Prostitution and Sexual Autonomy: Making Sense of the prohibition of Prostitution." Ethics, vol. 112, no. 4 (July, 2002), 749.] This conception of prostitution, however, is somewhat simplistic. To believe that the taboo is the only negative variable attendant with prostitution is to miss an entire range of issues that attend the industry and can potentially harm women in more ways than that of social stigmatization. Hallie Rose Liberto argues that Anderson's sense of prostitution is incomplete and that there are actually two types of prostitution: "sexual-rights-alienating prostitution and sexual-rights-preserving prostitution."[footnoteRef:3] [3:… Continue Reading...

John Stuart Mill’s on Liberty

of objections to his harm principle. One example he notes is that of the prohibition to the consumption of pork in Muslim countries. According to the harm principle, Mill asserts that this merely restricts liberty and forces individuals to conform to religious dictates. "It is, in the first place, an offence against their religion . . . that peculiar character, resembling an instinctive antipathy, which [is] the idea of uncleanness . . . "[footnoteRef:8] For Mill, the prohibition of pork is solely rooted in religious prejudice and thus cannot be defensible. The result is merely the restriction of liberty… Continue Reading...

Consumer Protection Memo

in the 1960s, alongside other policy measures such as prohibition of smoking in public and cigarette taxes, the prevalence of smoking in the U.S. has reduced to 16.8% in 2014 from 42.4% in 1965 (Robinson, Viscusi & Zeckhauser, 2016). Nonetheless, if consumer warning labels are to be of more benefit to consumers, they must properly convey the severity or risk level posed by each product as risk severity tends to differ from product to product (Purmehdi et al., 2016). For instance, both cigarettes and processed foods have materials that may cause cancer. Nonetheless, cigarettes present a greater risk factor… Continue Reading...

Main Themes in the Film Yentl

film "Yentl" "Yentl" is a tale set in 19th century Poland, portraying a vivacious, independent little girl called Yentl from the Polish Jewish community, who was doggedly determined to follow her dreams despite knockbacks. Yentl obstinately wishes to pursue education in a community where academics, particularly Jewish religious learning, is strictly reserved for males only and is forbidden for girls. Posing as a youth, Yentl, however, flouts all societal rules and prohibitions with the strength of character that goes well with the personality of Barbra Streisand, who is the director, producer and co-writer of this remarkable movie. Although the film… Continue Reading...

Religion in Ancient Greece

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 important for individuals and the society as a whole to please the gods as wronging or angering the gods would attract misfortunes such as illness, drought, and earthquakes.… Continue Reading...

Supreme Court Second Amendment Case

bear arms and the requirement for registration of handguns, prohibition on guns in the home without a registration certificate, and requiring trigger-locks for legitimate guns in the home violated the amendment. The lawsuit was dismissed by the district court but reversed by the District of Columbia Circuit on the premise that the Second Amendment protects individual's right to bear arms. The U.S. Supreme Court later granted certiorari (U.S. Supreme Court, 2007). Issue: The issue in this case is whether the provisions of the District of Columbia Code violate the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In essence, the question… Continue Reading...

Supreme Court

Amendment VI's Clause of Jury Trial. He was staunchly against the prohibition of capital punishment by extending the Clause of unusual and cruel punishment outlined in Amendment VIII (Slattery, et.al, 2016). Clear references of the long-established capital punishment rule are evident in the Constitution, and judges shall not bank on evolving decency norms for undermining the death sentence's historical and textual justification. He asserted that fervent ingrained standpoints against capital punishment were a poor excuse to read them into the American Constitution, which didn't hold them, especially as this would force the standpoint of a minority upon America. In… Continue Reading...

Federalism and States Rights Regarding Drugs

Drug Enforcement Administration, the Controlled Substances Act, and the War on Drugs all show that drug prohibition has been framed as a federal issue. Recent state-by-state legalization of cannabis (marijuana) has challenged and undermined the efficacy of federal drug laws and anti-drug policies. Almost half the states have now legalized marijuana for either medical or recreational use (Hill, 2015). The state-by-state legalization scheme creates legal and ethical conundrums. For example, Hill points out that federal anti-drug legislation prohibits legal marijuana businesses operating in states like Colorado to use national financial institutions for banking. Without access to… Continue Reading...

American History During Early 20th Century

cities. One of the failed projects initiated by the Progressives was prohibition, which was proposed partly as a fix to perceived detrimental social effects of too much alcohol consumption. prohibition and the temperance movement tended also to be closely linked with women's suffrage campaigns. Both women's suffrage and prohibition became Constitutional Amendments, showing the power of the Progressive movement in influencing politics. The direct election of senators was also a Progressive era Constitutional Amendment that increased the participatory nature of American democracy. Another cornerstone of progressivism was a real attempt to reform government through evidence-based practices. Relying on empiricism… Continue Reading...

The American Prohibition Era

prohibition is a chapter in the history of the United States where the government implemented a nationwide ban on the consumption and sale of alcohol. Although it seems archaic and nonsensical now since most countries allow alcohol consumption, back then, for thirteen years it was considered illegal to buy, sell, and consume alcohol in the United States. A time of bootleggers and social 'Progressives' the prohibition Era of the United Sates shocked the nation, revealing how important the need was for people to drink.… Continue Reading...

Torture and Interrogation Essay

Each State party shall take effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture. The prohibition against torture shall be absolute and shall be upheld also in a state of war and in other exceptional circumstances (article 2);      (ii)  No State party may expel or extradite a person to a State where there are substantial grounds for believing that he would be in danger of being subjected to torture (article 3);      (iii) Each State party shall ensure that acts of torture are serious criminal offences within its legal system (article 4);      (iv) Each… Continue Reading...

National Security Impact Of Immigration Policy

tourists, refugees and migrants for ensuring the nation is free of threats. These measures include narcotics prohibition, preventing terrorists and felons from entering, and detaining illegal immigrants. American immigration organizations engage in intelligence sharing, collaborate with several security organizations and law enforcers on the local, national, and international levels, and undertake real- time analyses of countless details on travelers, vessels, and cargo.  The nation requires reasonable workable immigration strategies for improving national security and simultaneously balancing its contribution to other major national interests. Migration systems and policies greatly impact promotion of a more comprehensive US security agenda; reforms in the future aimed at… Continue Reading...

Unreasonable Searches and Seizures Article Reviews

found such practices personally distasteful and intrusive—and thus were motivated to see such actions as a violation against the prohibition against unreasonable searches and seizures. Similarly, a ban against the warrantless search of cellphones was found to be overly intrusive, given that the justices likely have such devices themselves. However, Greenhouse also suggests that interactions with police more common to persons of color, such as that of a man who ran away from the sight of police cars in broad daylight are less apt to be viewed as benign given that they do not conform to the justices’ framework… Continue Reading...

Obama’s First Year in Office

Introduction With the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s swearing-in as President of the United States, comparisons between his first year and office and his predecessor’s first year in office are bound to be made. Therefore, it is a useful exercise to re-examine the first year in office of Barack Obama following his swearing-in as President of the United States in 2009. This paper will examine Obama’s inaugural year in order to answer the question: Did Obama have a successful first year in office? As the evidence shows, Obama’s first year in the White House was indeed very successful. Methodology The… Continue Reading...

Fracking Policy Analysis

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

Iran Bioethics and Biotechnology Issues

that a governmental law which refers to transforming God's creation does not support a prohibition on genetic experiments or transformation. These scholars concluded that genetic research, development as well as engineering is legal and morally correct (Shahraz, 2002). Nevertheless, Serour restricts the fairness of genetic engineering would entail a difference in the development of God's creation, that would bring about imbalance in the human race and even the universe. ii. Shia As stated before, Shia is actually an Islamic school of thought. Although approximately 20 percent of Iranians abide by the Sunni school of thought, Shia had become the… Continue Reading...

Death Penalty As a Deterrent for Murder

outcome of individual decisions (Weaver, 1984). If legislation is passed that prohibits certain acts but the prohibition of these acts is only executed sloppily or at best inconsistently, whatever deterrents might be utilized as consequences for breaking the law will be scorned by the general public. Indeed, history offers a perfect example of this principle with the Era of prohibition in the U.S. during the 1920s when alcohol was outlawed and scofflaws (so-named because they scoffed at a law that was both despised by the public and ineffectively enforced by law enforcement officers). Individuals violated the laws of prohibitionContinue Reading...

Preventing School Shootings

rid of guns because the black market thrives when products are made illegal—just look at what happened during the prohibition Era. What needs to be done, instead, is for society to take a good, hard look at itself: why are we failing our youths? Why are they turning increasingly aggressive, hostile and violent towards their peers? It is not because guns are the problem—they are just viewed as a means to an end for these children who want to lash out at society. Instead, we have to examine our method of intervening, our method of raising them, our method… Continue Reading...

Colonial Conflict in Africa

were of less appealing character to Africans—such as cricket—were not included in this prohibition, as there was no real incentive among Africans to rally around these less attractive games. Football—like the cinema—became a way for Africans to use their leisure time to develop themselves according to their own natural and national self-interests. What the British had hoped—that these leisure activities spawn gentlemanly, submissive, pro-Western attitudes—had not come to pass. Instead, the Africans were filled with a sense of confidence and self-worth manifested in strong ethnic and nationalistic terms. For Africans in Zanzibar, football was like a rite through which… Continue Reading...

Criminal Justice System Essay

In nearly nine out of 10 searches, police find nothing. Likewise, excessive force by police persists despite Constitution’s prohibition on unreasonable searches/seizures” (Natarajan, 2014). Not only is it a wasteful action, leading to potential problems with the public and unnecessary arrests, it perpetuates the fear culture brought on by police officers and their, at times, unfair treatment of people of color. Many accounts exist that highlight the use of such a program to lead to arrests of people that otherwise would not face legal consequences. A simple act of walking away could be seen as combative and police may charge… Continue Reading...

Security at Bay Street Shopping Mall

been put in place. One of the key measures that have been instituted within the mall is the prohibition of photography by individuals within the vicinity and also the amassing of huge group gatherings without any previous notification. More often than not, terrorists have been able to accomplish their attempts owing to the fact that they previously visited the malls and took photos of the area and understood the approach of attack. In addition, the mall security personnel partakes in the profiling of the different behaviors perceptible through the real-time CCTVs. In addition, the security staff is keen on… Continue Reading...

“the Flea” by John Donne Close Textual Analysis

Close Textual Analysis: “The Flea” by John Donne The British poet John Donne is one of the best-known and most often-quoted of the metaphysical poets. Donne was a devout Christian but often used strange, arresting metaphors to convey theological truths. This can be seen quite clearly in “The Flea,” in which the small, biting insect that is apparently a mere annoyance becomes a metaphor for the joining of the poet and his beloved. “It sucked me first, and now sucks thee, / And in this flea our two bloods mingled be,” writes Donne (3-4). Even though the poet and his… Continue Reading...

Assessing the Benefits Of Marijuana

to preparation, packaging and distribution, thereby protecting consumers and ensuring reduced accessibility to minor children. Marijuana prohibition fails to offer the aforementioned protections (DPA). A total of 14 states have implemented regulations that permit marijuana’s utilization as a medicine for treating diseases such as cancer, AIDS, glaucoma, and multiple sclerosis. While studies focusing on the likely medicinal applications of marijuana have been prohibited in the nation, international scientific studies have proven successful in identifying an increasing number of advantages of the substance (DPA). Organizations like the American Nurses Association, American Public Health Association, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, National Association… Continue Reading...

Abortion and Public Perspectives Domestic and Global Perspectives

of this writing, Chile has had and continues to have, a very explicit prohibition to abortion. This is particularly noteworthy, as there does not exist any clear legal exceptions to abortion in that nation at this time. In such a country, getting the legislation changed would require a change of attitude in society as a whole and the researchers attempted to determine how difficult that would be in a place like Chile. One aspect of the finding did show a more nuanced take on the results, indicating that public opinion and current politics may diverge when it comes to… Continue Reading...

Palestine Her Story Documentary

way the Burns’ documentaries do, but I did want to include aspects of his films’ style, like prohibition, into my own. For instance, prohibition uses a lot of archival footage—especially pictures, and blends these with voice over narration. I realized I could combine the story telling as provided by my interviewees with this visual style of placing the voice over narration overtop of the old pictures. In terms of genre, my film is really a film about raising awareness about a social issue—but it is also meant to be an immersive experience. I did not want to simply tell… Continue Reading...

Civil Rights and Social Change

Q3. What was the purpose of prohibition? Which groups and areas generally supported the movement? Why? The purpose of prohibition was ostensibly to reduce alcohol-related crimes and the suffering perpetrated by alcoholism on individuals, families (particularly women and children), and society as a whole. The Temperance Movement was widely supported by women’s rights activists and abolitionists throughout its existence. Yet it was largely made up of rural, native-born Protestants and there was also a strong anti-immigrant sentiment within the movement. The virulently racist Klu Klux Klan, for… Continue Reading...

Philips Academy Andover Human Resources Plan

given the school’s vocal stance and reputation. Finally, we have already touched upon the prohibition of inappropriate contact with minors. The faculty and staff need to know without a doubt that these things are not at all permissible and even a single violation of the smallest act against protocol will result in dismissal. If faculty and staff members refuse to consider the safety of the entire community that is a negligence that the school will be on the line for. Hence, there need to be protocols in place to ensure that the teachers and administrators are all well kept in… Continue Reading...

A Biblical Worldview in Finance

Pritchard (2016) points out, “Congress has never enacted a prohibition against insider trading, much less defined it. Instead, the SEC has led in defining insider trading, albeit without the formality of rulemaking, and subject to varying degrees of oversight by the courts” (p. 55). Many individuals in government are often accused of insider trading, which shows how unethical the Justice System is, or, as Gerald Celente calls it, the “Just Us System” as in the ones running the show are typically exempt from all accountability. Hillary Clinton’s stock trading history for instance involving cattle futures which allowed her to… Continue Reading...

State Vs Federal Crime

Federal vs. State Crime While some crimes are deemed to be state crimes, others are considered to be federal crimes. In essence, a vast majority of crimes are heard and determined in state courts as they happen to be state crimes. In seeking to distinguish between federal and state jurisdiction in prosecutions of a criminal nature, and in reference to crimes against persons, this text will concern itself with kidnapping. Kidnapping, in basic terms, has got to do with the illegitimate or illegal restraint/imprisonment and transfer of an individual from a specified place to another against his or her will… Continue Reading...

Racism and Discrimination Impact on Civil Rights and Student Rights

The complaint is investigated accordingly and the school constantly reminded of the prohibition of harassment based on racism in government funded schools. If the investigation proves that discrimination actually took place at the school, the Office for the Civil Rights makes sure that the school adopts a fully enforced anti-harassment policy. Enforcement failure can cause the Office for Civil Rights to revoke government funding or fine the school for each incident. DaShanne Stokes quotes, “It speaks volumes when people who are discriminated against go on to discriminate against others.” If the harassed student has suffered serious emotional, mental or… Continue Reading...

Nationwide Marijuana Legalization

usage in the U.S. shows that the plant was always legal up until the era of prohibition and that from that time onward, it never again regained status as a plant with health values or with recreational positives (Deitch).  Today, however, many researchers and advocates are out to show that marijuana has medicinal benefits and is socially acceptable.  The problem remains that the federal government so far refuses to budge on the issue of marijuana.  This is a problem that needs to be addressed because as several states show, legalizing marijuana can increase tax revenues and decrease the amount… Continue Reading...

phase of investments, fair and equitable treatment, observance of obligation, prohibition of performance requirements, conditions for expropriation and compensation, freedom of transfers, and procedures for dispute settlements. (Japan-United Arab Emirates Investment Agreement, 2018, para. 5) The results of these and the other efforts to strengthen relations between the UAE and Japan have included the blossoming of Japanese businesses in the UAE, increasing from just three in 1967to more than 300 Japanese companies today (Japan-United Arab Emirates Investment Agreement, 2018).The implications of these trends together with the formal Japan-UAE Investment Agreement will include helping ensure the stability of Japanese business… Continue Reading...

Israel S Human Rights Violations

[7: Goodhart, Michael E. (2016). Human rights: politics and practice] The explicit prohibition of forced displacement aims to prevent civilians from becoming refugees. On the other hand, international humanitarian law is relatively indifferent to the specific needs of refugees who are in the territory of a party to an armed conflict. What do you suggest should be done to effectively address the issue? Racism is a learned concept within society. Many studies have been conducted on how and why racism occurs; within human nature it has been seen that people are prejudice to ‘outsiders’. There are a variety of methods in… Continue Reading...

Ethical Decision Making

Introduction Ethical dilemmas take place when a circumstance necessitates one to choose amongst alternatives that generates a values conflict amongst the various organizational stakeholders. One of the major contemporary ethical dilemmas is the use of social media. In the present-day organizational setting and the advancement of technology, social media has become a significant business marketing tool, and it a fundamental part in the lives of personnel (Massotte, 2017). The progressing nature of social media implies that it is becoming more challenging to make a distinction between personal and professional within the organization in terms of a social media setting. This… Continue Reading...

The Great Gatsby and Jazz

a time of easy credit and flowing cash. It was a time of prohibition, when alcohol had been outlawed and people looking for a good time had to go underground to the speakeasies, where they drank their liquor in hiding. To be human meant to be a criminal, and thus everyone who wanted to have a drink became a scofflaw. The 1920s was the decade of the scofflaw, the decade of excess and the decade of the nouveau riche—the ones who, like Jay Gatsby, made their millions from bootlegging or from the stock market or from both. Nothing captured… Continue Reading...

What Makes Venice Beach Unique

and the pier was destroyed by fire about that time. prohibition had also come into effect, which threatened the revenues of the city—but the Kinney family restored the pier and constructed new amusements for the people—roller coasters, a racing derby, a fun house and much more. It was a top-notch attraction for tourists year round (Stanton). It was generally a destination of innocent fun that fit right in with the culture of pre-1960s America. Americans were generally jubilant throughout the 1920s, depressed throughout the 1930s, energized by the 1940s, and exultant during the 1950s. Transformation Venice in its original… Continue Reading...

Why Marijuana Should Be Legalized

and general stores in America without any problem. But once prohibition hit, marijuana was banned along with alcohol—and both went underground to be purchased by American scofflaws who did not care what the law said. Weed is Making a Comeback in a Big Way Today, there is a resurgence of interest in the positive effects of marijuana and in the utility of hemp. Part of it is because the American public is finally learning that Big Pharma cannot be trusted—not after the opioid epidemic debacle and the willingness with which doctors were prescribing drugs like Oxycontin and getting people… Continue Reading...
