Should College Athletes Be Paid Essay

College athletes devote a lot of time and energy to athletic competition—so much so, in fact, that they are routinely considered athletes first and students second (especially since for parts of the year their role in sports actually obliges them to miss classes).  And because college sports is a huge industry today, college athletes provide an extraordinary source of revenue for these universities.  Yet for all the work and time and energy that student athletes put into their game, whether it is basketball or football, these athletes do not receive any pay for the services and entertainment they provide to Continue Reading...

Book Of Acts History or Theology

Indeed, Luke has much the same advocates and detractors when it comes to the veracity and quality of what is written by Luke. Powell gets to the point, so to speak, about Luke when he says that "though it is appropriate today to think of Luke as a historian, theologian and literature artists, it must be noted that the middle term predominates" (Powell). Indeed, Powell is rather emphatic when he says that… Continue Reading...

East Asian History Questions

Masao (72). Long into the Tokugawa period, the dynasty enjoyed a tight relationship with Confucian scholarship, which enabled the systems of power to predominate in Japan. Yet the samurai position was hailed as a morally righteous one, leading to serious ethical dilemmas. When the samuri honorably requested that their deed be legally and ethically evaluated, the scholars struggled with how to define and situate the conflict. On the one hand, the integrity and stability of the state was at stake; on the other hand, the morals and ethics undergirding Confucian philosophy and perhaps more importantly, Japanese custom and social… Continue Reading...

Mathematics Assessment

compartmentalized recurrence of the things offered to them, but a combined scholarship connecting their learning based in other subjects and presented in a situation that matches that where the learning may be potentially most significant (Tanner, 1997). Authentic assessment may entail a combination of authentic assessment and authentic learning experiences. First, one needs to come up with activities which need students to integrate, synthesize and apply skill and knowledge in a way that shows the actual world and goes beyond the classroom. Job study programs and apprenticeships are types of techniques that vocational teachers have applied that are found… Continue Reading...

Role Of Confucianism in Art in China

century, Ma Yuan painted "Scholar Viewing a Waterfall." This painting not only shows how important scholarship and learning is to Confucian morality, but also how important learning is to maintaining the order and structure of the universe. A major feature of Confucian doctrine is social order and hierarchy, but that hierarchy is important insofar as it reflects the cosmic order of the universe. In "Luohan in a Garden Setting," from the Ming dynasty, the artist clearly renders human and cosmic life as an ordered hierarchy. Finally, twelve centuries after Gu's "Admonitions," Tang Yin produced "The Thatched Hut of Dreaming… Continue Reading...

Cross Cultural Impact Of China on Vietnam Today

tasked with two responsibilities: (a) identifying and obtaining the most recent works of Chinese scholarship and (b) to engage in poetry-writing competitions with Korean and Chinese scholars. Vietnamese envoys that performed especially well in these competitions were regarded as national heroes and these competitions (termed "letters trap" by the Vietnamese) also promoted amiable diplomatic relations (p. 115). The teams of envoys that were periodically dispatched to China enjoyed a great deal of latitude in their choices of which Chinese books were most relevant for Vietnam. In this regard, the author notes that, "Scholarly envoys to China justified their selection… Continue Reading...

Their success caused the growth of classical scholarship (meaning Confucianism), and also Chan (Zen Buddhism) During the 13-14th centuries there was increasing integration between the Dai Viet and Champa (which is now Southern Vietnam) under Tran leadership. This was achieved under the rubric of Buddhism and their shared goals to defeat the Mongols By the mid 14th century, there was trouble from the western mountain Tai people. Gradually the official doctrine of the kingdom shifted from Buddhism to Confucianism. Also at this time, Southern customs started to overtake the Northern customs, and Champa started to erode… Continue Reading...

Book Review Of Bethany Moreton’s “to Serve God and Walmart

Bethany Moreton's "To serve God and Walmart: The making of Christian free enterprise." (Harvard University Press, 2009) Author Bethany Moreton's work provides an insight into Walmart's corporate history and its swift climb, within 50 years, from a little discount retail chain opened up by Sam Walton to an international retailing giant. The author goes beyond readers' expectations to include Walmart Country's religious, social, and cultural history (the term 'Walmart Country' would refer to its politically charged birthplace and surroundings of East Oklahoma, north-western Arkansas, and south Missouri). It is a place where the retailer's customers, supervisors and staff collaborate with… Continue Reading...

Ramayana Mahabharata Divine Incarnation

Ramayana and the Mahabharata offer a cohesive explanation of the Hindu concept of the avatar, the manifestation of divinity in various forms. The god that practices avatara most is Vishnu, the Lord of Preservation whose intervention in the world has a direct impact on the lives of human beings and the outcomes of human civilization itself. Vishnu practices avatara in order to promote dharma, which refers to ethical duty and right action. The avatar concept is explored most deftly and explicitly in the two Hindu epics comprising the Itihasa, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Both narratives demonstrate that divine avatars… Continue Reading...

Muslim Youth Identity in Biculturalism America

way identity itself is conceptualized. For example, as Joshanloo (2013) points out, Western scholarship on identity construction is built on Western values and concepts integral to Western personality theory and worldview. When considering the unique elements of Muslim identity construction, or any other non-Western identity construction, it may be necessary to reconsider issues such as how happiness and other psychological variables are defined (Joshanloo, 2013). Identity and culture are both structural elements in sociology and psychology. As structures they are "mutually sustaining cultural schemas and sets of resources that empower and constrain social action and tend to be reproduced… Continue Reading...

World History

representation, mainly of Euro-American and European peoples, world history scholarship has frequently used a Western lens to look at the past. It may even be argued that the very nature of world history examinations reflects scholarly imperialism.[footnoteRef:6] [6:. Ibid.] The world history discipline has gone above individual achievements and created professional analysis organizations. American secondary schools and higher education institutions, in addition to educational institutions in several other nations, have greatly expanded world history teaching. In the meantime, the nature of examination of world history has undergone a transformation, moving towards a more interactive and interdisciplinary approach. Whilst understanding… Continue Reading...

College Student Development Theory

The student development theory is a body of the educational scholarship and psychology that demonstrates the strategy higher educational students gain knowledge. The theory also guides students in their educational affairs. College students are categories as students in the higher education especially in the formal setting such as colleges, universities, polytechnic and other institutions of higher learning. On the other hand, development is defined as a "process of increasing complex." (Patton, et al. 2016 p 5). With reference to the students' affair, the theory is a useful tool in answering the cogent question that students might encounter… Continue Reading...

What Is Christology

to Christology is one that is based on historical scholarship and divorced somewhat from faith. Rausch refers to the "historical-critical approach" to refer to the elevation of historical fact over idealization and mythology (p. 5). As ideal as a historical-critical approach to Christology would be to elucidating the historical personage of Jesus of Nazareth, there are several drawbacks to the critical approach that Rausch addresses. Those drawbacks include the insufficiency or inability of historical methods to discuss the resurrection and other spiritual issues, and also the tendency for the historical-critical methods to be inherently biased towards secular worldviews. Christology… Continue Reading...

Special Education Theory and Intervention

intervention (RTI) like targeted individualized interventions and regular progress monitoring are occasionally missed due to the lack of fidelity to best practices and recommended guidelines based on evidence-based instructional strategies. As a future director of special education, I would ensure that RTI is responsive and responsible, first by developing standard procedures for progress monitoring. Research on specific learning disability shows that the tiered structure of RTI can be especially helpful but only when RTI is defined specifically because vagueness leads to inconsistent and unreliable results with children (Hauerwas, Brown & Scott, 2013). There is no "clear national definition of what… Continue Reading...

College Debt

The problem Of late, an alarming hike is being witnessed in college tuition fees. This, coupled with books, housing, supplies, transport and food expenses, leads to unmanageable debt for college students. A majority of financial experts suggest maximum borrowing to amount to one’s anticipated earnings during one’s first year following graduation. But the hike in tuition fees renders this suggestion hard to follow. Nearly 50% of collegegoers today consider quitting college midway owing to debt incurred. Unable to meet these expenses, an increasing number of pupils are actually quitting college. Meanwhile, other pupils have no option but to seek full-time… Continue Reading...

Cultural Diversity Issues

From WWMT.com comes the news story of Western Michigan University Bronson School of Nursing receiving $2 million in grant money for scholarships to students who are from different cultural backgrounds so that a more diverse culture of student nurses can be achieved (VanTimmeren, 2017). As Bryan (2014) points out, culture is very important in this day and age because it informs people’s perspectives and values about what is good and bad regarding others in society. If people have a very narrow and poorly conceived viewpoint or perspective on other cultures, there is going to be tension in the field. To… Continue Reading...
