Liberation Theology Meets Humankind Embrace

On the latter aspect, for example, modern-day individuals who suggest that theology is superior to social science will probably consider the Scriptures a worldview manuscript that offers a guideline, rather than a blueprint, for how the Trinity expects mankind to be organized, including its crucial relationships with the Almighty (Beed and Beed 2010). Still, they believe the Biblical interpretation needs to be continually reexamined and reevaluated, bearing in mind historical, linguistic, archeological and theological developments. These inputs are seen throughout Scriptural interpretative history, for effectively and more precisely ascertaining the character of authentic, justified Scriptural knowledge. This, however, is… Continue Reading...

Analysis Of Murderers Alex and Derek King

Criminology Offenders: Alex and Derek King (12 and 13 when they killed their father) Theory: Sampson and Laub's Age-Graded Theory of Informal Social Control One basic premise of the Age-Graded criminology and informal social control theory was that, whilst experiences of childhood and personality traits are vital to comprehending behavioral stability, teenage and adulthood experiences can readdress criminal paths either more negatively or positively. Laub and Sampson discovered, particularly, that marital relationships and employment stability were a key factor in adult criminal change. With increased strength of familial and workplace bonds, deviancy and criminality in the non-delinquent control group as… Continue Reading...

Australian Curriculum

comes to the teaching of core subjects such as math, English, science and HASS. While changes that are necessary are a good thing and need to happen, there is also something to be said for changing things too much and/or too often. Having too many changes, good or bad, leads to what is known as "change fatigue" and this has been witness even when it comes to teachers that are otherwise very dedicated and enthusiastic. In short, while continual improvement in schools is something that should be strived after as much as is possible, changing things just for change's… Continue Reading...

They note that the world is rapidly changing when it comes to things to technological advancement, scientific innovation and globalization shifts. This in turn has shifted what the "average" person does or does not in terms of daily life and it has also shifted what is demanded when it comes to the educational and employment opportunities in the developed world. Given all that, the NSTA has gone so far as to say… Continue Reading...

Changing Psychological Contract Implications for Hrm

The Changing Employer-Employee Relationship and Implications on HRM Organizations now operate in a rapidly changing world. Changes in consumer behavior, increased competitive pressure, technological advancements, as well as regulatory shifts in the last few decades have generally compelled organizations to adjust their strategies, objectives, policies, and actions in an attempt to enhance organizational efficiency and profitability (Freese, Schalk & Croon, 2011; Ulen, 2015; Abu-Doleh & Hammou, 2015). In fact, the ability to accommodate change has been marked as a vital ingredient of success in the constantly evolving operational environment (Wellin, 2007).

Lecture Xx by William James

we presume some future state whereby this "unseen world" will be discovered and verified by science. Presently, we might say that these answers are represented by either fundamentalists who dogmatically assert the ultimate truth of their religious beliefs irrespective of evidence, or New Age thinkers who dogmatically assert that science and religion will ultimately be reconciled at some distant time in the future: "science of religions may not be an equivalent for living religion; and if we turn to the inner difficulties of such a science, we see that a point comes when she must drop the purely theoretic… Continue Reading...

New Generation by Solzhenitsyn Review

beings lies in their being rooted in French enlightenment and modern science. These philosophies relate and identify nature with matter. Humans are part of this nature and so is material. The central concern then is what place of the spirit and God has in such supposed set. If there is no God, then what would stop man from degenerating into basic beastly behavior and bestiality? An incomprehensible time of nightmares and delirium came around. It persisted for a long time. The ordeal started with being stripped naked and your feet being pierced. This went on in a stifling chamber… Continue Reading...

Working Women and Breastfeeding

It has been recognized that breastfeeding constitutes the best source of infant nourishment, functioning as nutrition as well as the "living fluid" imbued with a complex blend of enzymes, hormones, and antibodies, unique to the mother and her infant. Baby formula is unable to replicate the above essential substances. 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… Continue Reading...

Feminism in the Hunting Trip on Parks and Recreation

that women are less aggressive based on these biological differences. I believe that the science is important since many people attempt to justify their views based on evidence such as this. The hormonal differences that exist between genders is thought to cause significant differences in behaviors based on the biological characteristics of each gender. For example, men on average have far more testosterone which has been correlated with certain types of behaviors such as aggression and competitiveness. As a result, many people have used the biological perspective to explain why the different gender norms have developed and researchers have… Continue Reading...

Social science researchers can use a wide array of tools to gain fresh insights into the phenomenon of social change, including qualitative research tools that use various theoretical perspectives (Hansen, 2009). Most of these research tools conceptualize social construction as "how the physical aspects of the world are seen to have independent existence [and] how the world is perceived (reality)" (Hansen, 2009, p. 6). Some of the more popular research strategies for developing new insights into the social world include those that stress "human interpretation, inductive reasoning, holistic… Continue Reading...

Enlightenment

of legitimacy and authority occurred (Badger). The shift occurred against the backdrop of ideals such as science, tolerance, liberty, democracy, secularism, free will and humanism. However, the period is also scared with false starts and failures, violent schisms, world wars, imperialism, terrorism, irrational nationalism, extreme religious war, information overload, pollution and the threat of nuclear annihilation that indicate failure of the rational model promised by the Enlightenment. On the premise of this dichotomy of hope and failure, this essay critically demonstrates the failure of the Enlightenment project, especially from a social and moral perspective. The essay particularly considers how… Continue Reading...

Aristotle’s Philosophy

Preview The basic idea of Aristotle's work is to enhance our understanding about the 'good' and he describes it as something at which all things aim, which is the end in itself and therefore considered as the highest good. Aristotle describes this highest good as "happiness" which is complete in itself and that should be sought for its own sake. Contrary to Plato's concept, i.e. the source of all goodness in the universe, of whatever form or kind, is an absolute good; Aristotle holds a point-of-view that instead of a sole universal ideal, many kinds of good exist. Good, as… Continue Reading...

Systematic Review

With the rapid increase in the research conducted on health sciences, there is difficulty for researchers and clinicians to be up-to-date with the studies. Therefore, reviews that give a summary of the impact of different intervention experiments are a greatly efficient way to come up with a conclusion of what is effective and what isn't. Systematic reviews are different from the traditional kind in many ways. According to Petticrew and Roberts (2006), the systematic type of reviews normally involve a comprehensive and in depth plan along with search approach that is presumptive, with the aim of reducing partiality by finding,… Continue Reading...

Evolution Of Management Style at Galaxy Toys

Management as a discipline is generally concerned with the art and science of getting a group of people to achieve a defined goal or objective (Griffin, 2008). The discipline has evolved significantly over the last one century or so (Roth, 1998). In the first half of the 20th century, emphasis was largely placed on structure, authority, and production; with little or no attention to employees (Adetule, 2011). There has, however, been a tremendous shift of management focus from structure and authority to people (employees) over the years (Griffin, 2008). The evolution of management… Continue Reading...

Modern Corporate Social Responsibility

Disability as Diversity People who are disabled very much face an uphill climb when it comes to surviving and thriving in the workplace. Indeed, the physical and/or mental challenges faced by the disabled are compounded by the way that organizations and the people therein react to them and that includes whether they are hired, what they are hired to do and how people treat the disabled employee upon hire. While much of the overall outlook is grim, a strong organizational culture that is installed and enforced properly via the following of social justice and similar principles can be a tool… Continue Reading...

The scientific method is really a simple process -- but by following it great things can be discovered. The first step in the scientific method is to ask a question -- and you have done that by asking me about stem cells. The second step is to do background… Continue Reading...

Human Sexuality Issues and Films

...difficult, if not impossible, to clearly define "sex" because of the diversity of human sexual experiences. For some, sex is vaginal intercourse only. For others, sex includes everything from masturbation to oral sex to nude role-playing games. Because people tend to have multiple sex partners in their lifetime, sex may also mean different things to the very same person. With regards to oral sex, attitudes have changed tremendously over the years and vary throughout cultures. Saletan points out that historically, oral sex has been perceived of as "not only more intimate than intercourse but also reserved for those who were… Continue Reading...

Treatment Modalities for Act and Ipt

IPT have distinct roles, and different patients may be referred to one of these treatment modalities yet resist treatment in some way. Rather than viewing these patients as categorically "difficult," therapists would be better off repositioning and rebranding ACT and IPT to better sell their respective models. It is also helpful to understand patient reservations, recognize there may be cross-cultural variables at stake in the communication process, or other patient-centric variables impacting their attitudes toward the particular modality. Many patients naturally mistrust a treatment modality that is new or unfamiliar to them, or which they have never heard of before… Continue Reading...

The Things They Carried by Tim O’brien

It is a hotly contested idea that just one war-themed book can adequately discuss the topic of Vietnam, and this idea is properly portrayed in this book. Fellow authors like Renny Christopher have condemned Tim O'Brien's story for paying more attention to the misery of the American soldiers and less interest in the Vietnamese. However, the core of "The Things They Carried," O'Brien's work is distinct. Another author, Heberle, who wrote "A Trauma Artist," based his work on how aggression has impacted on American politics, society and culture.

Such intuitions could take the place of intuition in cases where intuitions do not agree. Neuroscience is the precise science area from which to seek answers. The brain of a human being is responsible for the abilities that are essential for personhood as identified by Locke and his successors. These properties include self-awareness, rationality, self-awareness, intelligence cognition on the future, mental states, linguistic communication, mental states about others' mental states and consciousness across the board (Farah & Heberlein, 2007). Some schools of thought have sought to suggest that the issue of abortion suffices at a stage in prenatal care… Continue Reading...

Culture and Organization

.....organisational environment can be an important source of wellbeing for individuals. This is particularly true if the environment encourages social interactions. Indeed, literature has demonstrated that social interactions in an organisation are crucial for generating positive emotions, which may in turn contribute to desirable employee outcomes such as lower cases of interpersonal conflict, reduced absenteeism, increased loyalty, and higher productivity (Biggio & Cortese, 2013). The connection between positive employee outcomes and positive organisational outcomes cannot be understated. Humans are naturally social beings, and their contact with others is as important as food and other basic needs. Since majority of adults… Continue Reading...

Criminal Justice Bias

The killing of the two black American young men Amadou Diallo and Louima were separated by about two years but Amadou's killing happened just before the trial of Louima's case. Amadou's killing drew a lot of public interest that was focused on the conduct of the New York Police. It was the only such heated debate since the Knapp commission of the 70s which disclosed corruption in the police department. Amadou was from a middle class family that migrated from Guinea. They were engaged in simple trade activities including selling items on the streets. Amadou was shot 41 times in… Continue Reading...

Literary Works Referring to the Mental Illness

mental illness is a serious condition and with an advancement of technology and modern science, the physiological issue surrounding a mental illness is not well understood. The stigma that place on people suffering from mental illness is so much making people pretending that they are not suffering from the problems. Although, many people were not born with a mental problem, however, the societal burden can make people demonstrating signs of mental disorders such as depression and irrational behaviors. The objective of this paper explores the concept of mental illness illustrated in different literary books. Literary Issues on Mental Illness… Continue Reading...

According to Driskell, social justice elements of art instruction encompass inquiry, examination, and action, with the former component being youth-driven. When posing issues, educators question children on matters stemming directly from their lives. Inquiry outcomes shift from distinct scenarios to a more generalized, society-wide context. Students personalize, deliberate on, and generalize their problems. Analysis entails observing others' complex contexts and discussing potential resolutions to their issues. Students collaboratively and critically analyze artwork in relation to the issue presented,… Continue Reading...

Drone Strikes and Politics in Movies

If drones continue to draw attention to the imbalance of power in global affairs, then it becomes potentially more likely for countries with nuclear weapons to think more seriously about using them as a last resort against a perceived global tyrant, the new "visual superpower," (Maurer 1). The long-term impacts of drones on perception of American integrity may be dire because drones also create a psychologically chilling landscape of oppression in places… Continue Reading...

Vietnam and China: Acculturation's Apparitions And Certain Realities Behind Them" The Vietnamese people have a lengthy history that dates back at least two millennia. The ancestors of modern Vietnamese people lived in the Red River delta of northern Vietnam and were subsequently conquered by the Chinese, becoming part of the early Chinese empire. By the first century CE, Vietnam succeeded in becoming a suzerainty of the Chinese empire and it remained in this capacity for the next 900 years. During these ten centuries, the Vietnamese people were heavily influenced by several aspects of Chinese culture and society, including its political… Continue Reading...

Sea Treasures – Business Model

An examination of consumer views on marine aquarium trade in fish indicates that there is need to educate and inform lobbyists and consumers towards creating demand for organisms caught sustainably. Further, there is need for such campaigns to connect the consumer information to human health effects and environmental impacts in a way that is honest and still not offending such a crucial industry. The venture in aquarium fish retailers on the online market has made 'impulsive purchases by lobbyists' a common occurrence (Mccollum, 2014). The growth of the aquarium industry has encouraged more lobbyists to emerge. The increased success of… Continue Reading...

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

Although secular authority spheres (e.g., science and government) have sometimes been differentiated and fashioned from the once-dominant spheres of religious influence, an emphatic religiosity (e.g., religious discourses of achievement, wellbeing, and affluence) has, at other times, maintained custodianship over the quotidian routines of American society and their ultimate dreams. That is, secularization is not a preordained or guaranteed aspect of contemporary America; rather, it is a sporadically- and haphazardly- realized contingency. Understandings and Take-Away The converse of ideological standpoints, the American "Wal-Marting" phenomenon offers a harsh understanding of… Continue Reading...

Investigative Psychology

Psychology Analysis of the crime scene After Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced, he was taken to the Correctional Institution of Columbia, located in Portage; a town in Wisconsin. During his first incarceration year, Dahmer was confined separately in order to keep him physically safe in case he interacted with other prisoners. With his consent, when the first solitary confinement year was over, Dahmer was taken to a unit that was less secure. Here, he was made to work for two hours each day; he used to clean the ablution block. Apparently, Dahmer adapted well to life in prison, although he had… Continue Reading...

Educational Plan for Improving Behavioural Health Amongst Older Adults

Populations in rural areas grapple with poorer health outcomes due to challenges such as greater resource constraints and shortage of health care personnel and facilities, with vulnerable populations being the most affected. This is particularly true for rural populations in North Dakota (ND) (Molmen et al., 2013). Constituting a substantial portion of the overall state population, older adults (aged 65 and above) in rural areas are particularly affected by the worrying health care situation in the state, especially in terms of smoking, alcohol consumption, and obesity. Education provides a valuable tool through which the behavioural health of older adults in… Continue Reading...

The science behind these topics has advanced significantly as brain imaging and other medical methods have started to supplant and supplement prior methods that were less precise (Nigg & Nagel, 2016). Technology has a place in the discussion for reasons other than medical screening and testing. Indeed, technology has emerged in many forms in the life of teenagers. Some are positive and upbeat about the improvement of technology but there are clearly some effects and outcomes that are at least related to the use of this technology that… Continue Reading...

Death and Faith from Existentialist Point Of View

Periechontology In order to understand the underlying concepts of faith with respect to philosophy, first it is important to understand 'philosophy' adequately. Jaspers was concerned about noting the originality and singularity of philosophy and he frames it as "to elucidate" (erhellen). As per Jaspers, this clarification or elucidation does not come to philosophers through an external agent but it happens by itself during the philosophical process and this happening is an innermost act. (Wildermuth, 2007). Philosophers understand the meaning and philosophy behind actions and things as they seek to explore hitherto mysterious, unexplained happenings and phenomenon. However, only a few… Continue Reading...

Artificial Intelligence and the Human Brain

Artificial intelligence has been at the center of many science fiction stories in the last fifty years. Some have become obsessed with proving or disproving the idea that computers can possess real minds, real consciousness. The latest take on this has been HBO's Westworld, a show about androids achieving consciousness. However, realistically many say this is an impossibility. While true artificial intelligence seems, unrealistic many have tried to actualize such a dream through AI projects and development of new, robotic technologies. However, will the goal of real consciousness derived… Continue Reading...

Cruelty and Intolerable Acts

Wanton Loss of Life A careful reading of David Livingston Smith's seminal treatise on the science of dehumanization, Less Than Human, reveals there is a fundamental relationship between the phenomena of dehumanization and that of genocide. There are countless examples which underpin this reality. Several genocides were accompanied by both thoughts and actions in which the perpetrators of these crimes against humanity seemed to consider their victims less than human. Livingston largely seizes upon this point in assembling what is his stance on the exact nature of the relationship between these two phenomenons. His central premise… Continue Reading...

They devised varied approaches to spirituality separate from traditional religions, as they wished to blend religion and science, were against the church's authoritarianism or sexism, or were better inspired and metaphysically excited with their spiritual journey and findings. SBNR adopted a political part as well, since the nation began raising questions of religious tolerance, identity, and pluralism post-9/11. To a few American Muslims, stressing the absence of traditional devotion as nominal Jews or Christians do or stressing a potentially longstanding secularity was one means to circumvent post-9/11 resentment and stereotyping.

Measured on the Ham-D scale of depression, Dawn's score will likely fall between 9-12 (Weissman, Markovitz & Klerman, 2007). However, monitoring Dawn over time will be necessary to see if the depression is recurrent. It is unclear when her "feeling stressed" about her grades began, exactly, or when her sleep patterns started to be disrupted. Therefore, if a DSM-V diagnosis is necessary, the F32.0… Continue Reading...

Failing the Bechdel Test

Still others of these reasons pertain to the function of films within society. For the most part, they are used to reinforce societal values and mores. To a lesser extent, this medium is also widely deployed as a means of introducing new societal norms which will one day become part of the social establishment. Finally, still other reasons directly correlate to the notion of gender and gender constructs in… Continue Reading...

Generalized Statement Of Purpose for Masters

do believe that the only way to help charitable organizations to thrive is through science. Evidence-based interventions are uniquely able to attract the funding they needs, because those that are rooted in faith-based organizations' chartable appeals will not have an intended effect on their communities. Instead, I see a strong need for international aid organizations to hire more epidemiologists to translate individual data sets from communities, into revealing patterns and trends. Those trends may reveal geographic-specific issues such as the way clean water access is inequitably distributed, leading to the manifestation of certain illnesses, or other geographic issues such… Continue Reading...

How Democracy Leads to Tyranny

Political Philosophy II: Theories of Freedom To answer the questions of why De Tocqueville and Mill think that democracy is a threat to the liberty of the individual and whether they are right, this paper will show that both De Tocqueville and Mill viewed democracy as a mechanism that could easily become tyrannical and thus overwhelm one's individual liberty. Considering that democracy in its various forms (direct, representative, constitutional) is capable of being corrupted (voters and/or representatives may be bribed, coerced, misinformed, misled, subjugated, harassed, mobbed, and so on), it is not difficult to see that both Tocqueville and Mill… Continue Reading...

Need for Strong Moral Character in Criminal Justice System Participants

1.  Explain how a criminal justice agency can ensure that it hires moral individuals. Criminal justice leaders are public servants responsible to their community. This responsibility, together with the huge amount of control and influence they have, necessitates that they display superior levels of ethical and moral conduct. Ethical practice guidelines remind criminal justice heads to realize the divide between integrity and friendship; corporate objectives and adeptness and client interests; between personal prejudices, interests, and views and professional values. In this respect, all law enforcement leaders are required to refrain from unethical conduct when carrying out their duties. Ethicality is… Continue Reading...

Incompatibility Between Islam and Human Rights

Human rights are the activities, freedoms and conditions that all human are entitle to enjoy, and these rights include economic, political, cultural and social rights. Putting differently, human rights are inalienable, inherent, indivisible and interdependent, which cannot be taken away, must be respected, and which the governments are to put in places the instrument to regulate laws and policies for human rights protection. Similarly, international human rights are the set of rules that guide the conducts of state's behaviors. Globally, countries enter into treaties to guarantee certain rights and refrain from violating these rights within their jurisdictions. (IJRC, 2016). The… Continue Reading...

Organizational Leadership

these makes the most valuable contribution to organizational leadership? Why? Cosmopolitanism denotes a construct emerging from social science, initially proposed by Immanuel Kant, the German philosopher, in the year 1784. This theory dealt with world citizenship, in which no individual would be identified as a specific country's citizen, but as a global citizen. Thus, cosmopolitans are simply people who don't identify only with their local environment, but with the international environment (Nicolopoulou et al., 2016). A geocentric attitude necessitates the ability to adjust to novel atmospheres and to be competent with multiple cultures. With swift economic transformations and organizations' attempts… Continue Reading...

Mixed Methods Designs

Generally, research may be quantitative or qualitative. Nonetheless, the usage of the two methods at the same time is common -- the mixed methods approach. Indeed, using both qualitative and quantitative approaches overcomes the limitations inherent in each approach, resulting in a better understanding of the research problem (Creswell & Clark, 2011). This paper identifies the major components of mixed methods research design and the strengths and weaknesses of the design. The paper also examines the relevance of the design to criminal justice agencies. The mixed methods design has a number of components. The first step is to define the… Continue Reading...

Spina Bifida

Spina Bifida is one of the many birth defects neonates are at risk of. However, this particular defect is unique because it is characterized by problems in the central nervous system (CNS) and it has a low death rate. The causes of this medical condition are quite difficult to determine as they are subject to hereditary and environmental elements. Simply put, Spina Bifida refers to a situation where the spinal cord is not fully developed. In extreme cases, the spinal vertebrae could be so badly formed that the delicate spinal cord is left unprotected. In most cases, the spinal cord… Continue Reading...

Trillium Herb Pharmacology and History

simply a bastardization of "birthroot," (Williams, 1820). Nineteenth century medical science catalogued the herb judiciously, indicating its efficacy as an astringent and cathartic and used to stop hemorrhaging even unrelated to childbirth (Williams, 1820). Writing in the New England Journal of Medicine, Williams (1820) also noted that Trillium causes fewer side effects than other astringent herbs, which can cause constipation. Moreover, Williams (1820) notes the use of Trillium for "arresting the progress of cutaneous eruptions," applying the herb in powder form topically (p. 332). Williams (1820) describes a case study in which the patient, "after using the powder a few… Continue Reading...

Using Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace

Emotional Intelligence and the Role it Plays in Project Portfolio Management One of the most important and essential qualities of leadership needed in today's multigenerational business world is Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI is a "people smart" type of intelligence -- it enables an individual to read a person and provide the right kind of emotional feedback and/or responses to that person's needs. Leaders who demonstrate strong emotional intelligence are able to improve project performance because they focus on the individuals within a team rather than simply or exclusively on goals and procedures (Cacamis & Asmar, 2014). EI allows one to… Continue Reading...

Within the last ten years, the life sciences in China have been responding to the need to infuse ethics into practice. There is some push in China toward creating official bioethics departments at the level of university and administration. China has begun to protect its intellectual property rights on its biological science resources (such as tissue samples or embryos), which has also raised important ethical questions.… Continue Reading...

An understanding of these aspects of qualitative research writing helps in enhancing the effectiveness of the research process and research findings.

These ten aspects relate to different… Continue Reading...

The Meaning Of Life

most central issues experienced by people. Tolstoy (Rowlands) claims that science is unable to provide assistance in this regard. While it can describe what life is, it is incapable of describing its meaning. It is able to explain the things in this world and what's possible; however, it is unable to explain their meaning and importance. Tolstoy states that faith provides an answer to this question. Hence, he asserts that irrespective of the answers provided by faith, it accords the finiteness of humanity's existence a sense of infiniteness, which fails to get vanquished under conditions of death, afflictions, and… Continue Reading...

Social Capital

contemporary emergence of the notion of social capital emanates from the past discussion in social science encompassing the correlation that exists between trust, social networks, and the advancement of present day industrial society. The theory of social capital has attained significance by means of the assimilation of classical sociological theory with the delineation of an intangible form of capital (Ferragina, 2010). Where it's going? The direction that social capital is taking encompasses the individualism and communitarian approaches. Through the conception of social capital, researchers have brought forth a combination between the value that is encompassed in the approaches of… Continue Reading...

That is fine -- but others have pointed out that there is a fine line between helping and hurting, and as the story of Frankenstein teaches us, we should respect the mystery of life and not be too quick to try to mimic it. Taylor's story of washing out the dead cells in a heart and putting new ones back in seemed very startling to me: it felt like something Dr. Frankenstein would have… Continue Reading...

Every action brings about a particular ending. The endings are diversified based on the action taken. Thus, the consequences of every action are founded in its ending.

New media helps advance the principles of science by helping all people have access to scientific research that would otherwise remain cordoned off in academic libraries. As Pinker (2010) points out, "scientists are never far from their e-mail, rarely touch paper and cannot lecture without PowerPoint," (p. 1). As a result of their increased connectivity and their use of digital technology, scientists more quickly share their results with peers, maximizing the time they spend on actual research and data collection. For example, a scientist who recently wrote a report about a longitudinal study… Continue Reading...

Emotional Labour and Gendered Occupational Segregation

Emotional labour is a common phenomenon, especially in service industries. Broadly speaking, emotional labour means that an individual at the workplace displays positive or organisationally-acceptable emotions regardless of their true emotional state (Hochschild, 1983). When interacting with customers, for instance, a customer service employee is required to treat customers with empathy, kindness, and calmness irrespective of how the employee is feeling or how the customer behaves or talks. Portraying negative emotions such as anger, frustration, and hostility would potentially injure the reputation of the organisation or negatively affect customer confidence in the organisation. Fundamentally, emotional labour means that while at… Continue Reading...

Fake News and Knowledge Is Power

to power given the potency of truth in eliminating superstition, bigotry, and misinformation. As problematic and troubling as the anti- science agenda of Trump presidency might be, the only way to take back power from demagogues and anti-intellectuals is through an affirmation and promotion of knowledge. As Swinton points out, "We have the power to kick fake news to the side and bring knowledge to the forefront again. We just have to utilize it." Knowledge is power for the individual and for the society. For individuals, knowledge constitutes real power in helping with self-determination, empowerment, and reaching personal goals. The… Continue Reading...

The History Of American Social Welfare

Christian conservativism as the root of the problem. The current anti-intellectual and anti- science trend has led to increased conservativism, leading also to an erosion of civil rights. The only groups that stand to benefit from a conservative Supreme Court are bigots, and the NASW Policy Statement on Civil Liberties and Justice would also agree. 15. The United States lags behind other developed countries on a lot of measures, especially health care and education. The reasons for its lagging behind center on the privatized model of healthcare and a refusal to frame healthcare as a human right. References Social Work… Continue Reading...

Digitalization to Enhance Customer Satisfaction at Apm Terminals

In business, the significance of customer satisfaction cannot be overemphasized. Indeed, with increasingly many firms providing similar goods or services, dissatisfied customers can easily look for other alternatives. Accordingly, firms do whatever it takes to retain customers and keep them happy (Kumar, 2016). With tremendous technological advancements over the years, firms are ever more relying on information technology (IT) as a valuable driver of customer satisfaction (Mithas, Krishnan and Fornell, 2005; Ryding, 2010; Deloitte, 2013; Jan and Abdullah, 2014; Meige and Schmitt, 2015).

Use Of the Scientific Method

Reliability of Eyewitness Testimony The Scientific Method The scientific method is one of the most commonly utilized mechanisms in physical science to develop and conduct experiments. This method consists of several sequential steps, which are reflections of what happens during the scientific process. The use of the scientific method in conducting experiments is influenced by its ability to help lessen experimental bias and errors, which contribute towards poor results. Through lessening bias and errors in experiments, the scientific method enhances the reliability and accuracy of the results, which in turn enhances the researcher's confidence. The sequential steps in this method contribute… 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.

Unfamiliar vocabularies relating to learning and cognition emerged in the course of Week 4's readings and research. These include "mnemonics," "mental representation," and "domain knowledge." Mnemonics may essentially be defined as the techniques an individual uses to enhance memorization. These techniques are useful for learning as they help retain crucial information in the long-term memory. When information is retained in the long-term memory, it is organized in a certain manner. This is referred to as mental representation. Mental representation plays an important role in learning as learning generally occurs when the learner has a clear picture of a given phenomenon… Continue Reading...

Causes and Consequences in American History

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

was a hallmark of the modern era, and the Progressives in America aimed to replace cronyism with science-based public policy. With rigorous scientific methodology still in its infancy, though, the effectiveness of progressive reforms would not be fully felt for another several generations. Although the movement had its weaknesses such as being led primarily by middle class white males, the Progressives did promote labor rights, eliminated child labor, and helped to create rules and regulations related to working conditions in factories. The New Deal reforms of President Roosevelt likely could not have occurred had not the Progressive movement already… Continue Reading...

Philosophy Questions

due to scientific discoveries about human behavior's causal influence. If science can show that free will is an illusion, many important elements of the society can be undermined. Theoretical philosophical questions involve the definition of free will, and if it can accommodate scientific discoveries on the causes of human behavior and how so. Questions with regards to epistemology, metaphysics and the language and mind philosophy are just as important to people's daily lives as moral and ethics of practical philosophy. However, people's free will beliefs are relevant. Empirical evidence in the last half a decade has associated increased aggression,… Continue Reading...

Social science researchers can use either qualitative or quantitative strategies to develop informed and timely answers to their research questions, but these two approaches involve analyzing fundamentally different data sets. On the one hand, qualitative researchers can use various methods such as case studies, ethnographic studies, phenomenological studies, grounded theory, narrative and/or content analyses (Neuman, 2009). On the other hand, social science researchers can use quantitative strategies such as observational studies, correlational research, experimental, quasi-experimental and survey designs (Neuman, 2009).

Here, inequalities seen in incarceration trends are partly related to unequal social factors within Black communities, linked to destitution, accommodation, employment, and familial differences[footnoteRef:17]. Besides race, there are other factors that explain crime variations across place. Blacks make up a disproportionately high proportion of individuals dwelling in poor communities and localities in which numerous socioeconomic susceptibilities lead to… Continue Reading...

Inclusion Of Evidence Based Practice in Social Work

Social Workers' Application of Social Work Evidence-based practice is defined as a process through which a practitioner combines clinical experience with well-research interventions/measures. Evidence-based practice has not only emerged as an important component in the modern healthcare sector but is also increasingly vital in social work practice. The increased significance of evidence-based practice in social work is attributable to the fact that social workers are constantly seeking well-researched studies to obtain information that enhances their knowledge base. Additionally, competent social work practitioners continue to look for a wide range of theoretical knowledge to enhance their experiences and practice. Therefore, social… Continue Reading...

Performance Based Management Synthesis

over whether it should be considered an art or a science, or whether or not it is a discipline on its own (Brudan, 2010). Also referred to as results or outcome-based management, performance management is an umbrella term which includes a number of ongoing organisational processes: setting and clarifying objectives, establishing performance indicators, gathering and analysing data, reporting outcomes, and learning from the outcomes (Woerrlein & Scheck, 2016). This means that performance measurement is an element of PBM. Brudan (2010) describes performance measurement as a sub-process of PBM, which focuses on identifying, monitoring, and communicating performance outcomes, and taking… Continue Reading...

May 16, 1904, Galton reported that, “Eugenics is the science which deals with all influences that improve the inborn qualities of a race; also with those that develop them to the utmost advantage” (1904, p. 1). Similar to other like-minded eugenicsts, Galton believed that the number of people who possessed superior traits was far less than a society’s “defectives. Indeed, in a speech delivered in 1874, Galton, a English mathematician and statistician (Smith, 2002), actually calculated the number of men with superior intellectual traits at one in 10,000 in the English population (Galton, 1874).  In 1907, Galton established the… Continue Reading...

Other authorities, though, counter that there has not been any substantive slowdown in global warming trends and assertions to the contrary have been based on incomplete or inaccurate data. In this regard, Sumner (2015) reports that, “Following decades of warming and a hot 1998, Earth's average surface temperature seemingly plateaued. This warming hiatus, as it came to be known, had climate researchers scrambling for an explanation” (p. 6). More recent studies conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration… Continue Reading...

Media Theory Essay

and solidified in the 1990s, actor-network theory views technology within a social science framework. With actor-network theory, technology and media are both viewed as extensions of social and cultural realities, which is why the theory can potentially offer solutions to the problems of cybercrime. Theoretical Framework Actor-network theory is an ideal framework for studying the causes, mechanisms, and ramifications of cybercrime, as well as offering potential solutions. The theory is “versatile and well-suited for dealing with the complex interplay of human-technological digital relationships,” (Lippicini, 2014, p. 38). Lin & Lippicini (2011) also point out that actor-network theory can be… Continue Reading...

There are indeed narrow situations where supplementing what the body does on its own can be useful. Indeed, if there are people that are deficient when it comes to HGH, testosterone or other hormones, careful replacement of those missing amounts can be very beneficial to the body.

Human Theory Of Caring

what it is to be a nurse. William K. Cody is a respected and well-known contributor to Nursing science Quarterly. In one of his articles he discusses nursing theory. Cody opens with stating how convinced he is theory guides practice. This is significant to note because some people may say that practice guides theory. But, as Cody and others before him suggested, it is the opposite. To assert the alternative, that theory arises from practice to an equal or greater extent than theory guides practice, would be a misrepresentation of the contemporary art and science of nursing theory development.

The Benefits Of Crowdsourcing Medicine

Defined as “the process of seeking a problem's solution from a wide community, often online,” crowdsourcing is common in almost every sector (Sanghavi 1). However, many patients may be unaware that they can also crowdsource their healthcare decisions. Referred to as “a second opinion writ large,” crowdsourcing medical diagnoses is now possible through many different online platforms including CrowdMed and the more artificial intelligence (AI)-driven HumanDx (Arnold 1). The way medical crowdsourcing works is a little more complicated than asking for fine dining tips in Tokyo or even asking the general public for clues to solving a crime. With crowdsourced… Continue Reading...

The Invisible Gorilla Book Review and Analysis

Blending pop psychology with cognitive science, Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons write about perceptual biases and inattentional blindness in The Invisible Gorilla. Sparked by a now-famous experiment the authors performed, The Invisible Gorilla: How Our Intuitions Deceive Us is not as much about intuition as the subtitle of the book suggests. Rather, the book describes six ways our brains are fooled by illusions. Recognizing and understanding the illusions can prevent people from making critical mistakes in judgment. Those mistakes can sometimes be egregious, as when cops presume a black man… Continue Reading...

Conflict in the Story Soldier’s Home

Analyzing Conflict Ernest Hemingway’s story titled “Soldier’s Home” features a youth, Harold Krebs who is unable to adapt and lead an ordinary life after returning from war. Akin to several fellow soldiers-turned-writers, Hemingway uses this tale to explain his own problems with adjusting to a civilian life after the war. Though Krebs does set store by the truth, circumstances and society coerce him into lying. The tale depicts, in an accurate manner, the contradiction between his personal values (which changed drastically following his experiences on the battlefield) and people’s expectations from him (he is expected to display compliance with societal… Continue Reading...

Theory Of Motivation and Maslows Hierarchy Of Needs

Both observation and experiment provided the underpinning for Abraham Maslow’s theory of human motivation. Maslow (1943) posits, “man is a perpetually wanting animal,” leading to the constant striving to fulfill goals (p. 370). If and when anything prevents the fulfillment of a goal—whether the obstacle is internal or external—discomfort or psychopathy can occur (Maslow, 1943). Although Maslow’s original research was conducted decades ago, recent research on motivation and human behavior continues to substantiate Maslow’s core claims. Researchers continue to operationalize Maslow’s definitions of needs and motivation, leading to a strengthening of the original theory and expanded applications in the social… Continue Reading...

However, it is often taken for granted how classical conditioning was introduced to the field of psychology. This article starts with a brief section about the precursors of Pavlov’s famous dog salivation response experiments. The precursor to Pavlov was Twitmyer’s knee-jerk reflexes. Like Green (2009), Clark (2004) talks a little of William James and his contributions to the early evolution of psychology. Then, Clark (2004) delves into the meat of the matter: Pavlov’s experiments. Using dogs… Continue Reading...

The telephone is yet another common medium for sales or pitching for one. These forms often tax the mind of the salesperson, often subjecting them to emotional strain and emotional challenges during and after the sales encounter. Unfortunately, there has been little done in equipping the… Continue Reading...

Behaviorism As a Separate School Of Thought

pioneers of behaviorism including Watson were important to the development of psychology as a social science (Moore, 2011). In fact, Watson deserves the most credit for being the first person to propose behaviorism as a science, using the tools of the scientific method to measure human behavior. However, human behavior is remarkably complex and Watson’s early research failed to capture the nuances of human cognitive-behavioral responses. Pavlov built upon Watson’s foundation, and is probably the most famous of all the pioneering behaviorists. Pavlov’s famous dog experiments have become part of the common vernacular (Clark, 2004). Like Pavlov, B.F. Skinner… Continue Reading...

Talk Therapy and Psychotherapy in Psychology

from traditional psychoanalysis to life coaching. Talk therapy has positively contributed to the growth of psychology as a helping science, because instead of focusing on the biological precursors to psychological problems, the individual works through problems on their own in a systematic way. Talk therapy encourages self-awareness, which is not possible if the person is given medication alone (Axelrod, 2012). Through the talk therapy model, the person can role play, seeing their interpersonal communication problems from alternative perspectives. Talk therapy can also include a gradual opening up about traumatic experiences in childhood or more recent personal history. Through talk therapy,… Continue Reading...

Introduction Digital Disease Detection, commonly referred to as digital epidemiology provided strategies and methods for allowing digital-technology users to monitor infectious disease and conduct surveillance. These strategies help in the understanding of concerns and attitudes regarding infectious diseases. The process begins with the basics, such as the availability of internet access, online sharing platforms and other digital devices. These sources offer huge amounts of data. It is important to note that while these sources collect data, they do not, do so, with public health objectives in focus (Denecke, 2017). The past few decades have seen tremendous changes in the world.… Continue Reading...

Psychotherapy remains a critical intervention because it promotes self-awareness. In fact, one of the most salient themes in the… Continue Reading...

Assessments Of Personality Types and Careers

outlook. The three that stood out include being an actuary, a forensic science technician, or an insurance underwriter. Of these three, actuaries have higher starting salaries and larger earnings potentials. Actuaries need a strong background in statistics, because their job is to analyze statistical data related to public health, mortality rates, accident rates, and any other variable that might be related to insurance or public policy. Goals include risk forecasting, or projections of liability costs. However, being an actuary is more than crunching numbers. Actuaries are responsible for making clear judgments based on the data, and need to think… Continue Reading...

An Explanation Of the Definition Of Science

science is a “way of knowing,” meaning that it is one way of ascertaining the truth about the world. Although it is not the only way of knowing, it is the most reliable way of knowing the physical universe because it is based on systematic, rigorous methods of testing, experimentation, and calculated observations. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists (2017), science yields “unbiased and verifiable information to make important decisions,” (p. 1). The scientific method is used to acquire and analyze… Continue Reading...

Psychoanalysis and the Different Types Of Research

1. Freud’s five stages of psychosocial development include the oral, anal, phallic, latency, and genital. Although Freud did not test his theories empirically, on a conceptual level, these five stages do make some sense. Progression through the five stages is impeded when a person becomes fixated, their libido or drive directed towards self-fulfillment. Tension between what the id wants (especially instant gratification of any desire), and what the superego believes it should have creates neuroses, according to Freud. The ego is positioned like a mediator between the id’s desires and the superego’s restrictions and rules, creating a sense of self… Continue Reading...

wolves represent the indigenous people and their TEK, then Tyler represents the entirety of science and academia. Their different approaches to reality need to converge for mutual understanding and social harmony. Tyler could genuinely have gotten killed either by the frigid temperatures or by the wolves, had he disrespected either. Likewise, Tyler could have died without the knowledge offered him by the Inuit. Wolves are incapable of bridging the gap between species because they cannot master human language. Yet wolves do have a language, both a verbal/aural one in their howls and growls and also a nonverbal system of… Continue Reading...

It includes instruction in wider, central disciplines like English, science, Math, and History and is centered on developing skills like critical analysis, problem-solving, and effective oral and written communication. Liberal arts skill is important to the central purpose of why higher education exists in the United States. This is primarily because it emphasizes diversity and dynamism through exposure to a broad range of topics. The exposure is crucial because higher education exists in the U.S. to provide students with a broad knowledge base and detailed understanding of the surrounding world (Conrad & Johnson, 2012). In light… Continue Reading...

Education Classroom Design and Literacy Development

constructivism both provide theoretical frameworks to guide intelligent, participative, and evidence-based classroom design. Likewise, cognitive science offers tremendous insight into ideal methods of classroom design. This vision statement of an English classroom reflects ultimate goals in a literacy-focused environment, including collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. The instructor needs to create a learning environment conducive to responsiveness, from both teacher and peers. Responsiveness is a process whereby students in the classroom can feel heard, empowered to voice their questions, and also give constructive feedback to their peers. To ensure responsiveness is built into the modeling of the classroom, the following… Continue Reading...

society is explored in the novel as well. Victor is a scientist who wants to revolutionize science. He has absorbed the teachings of the Age of Enlightenment and enshrined Reason and liberalism in his own heart. As such, he has lost his humanity and his ability to be a social person: he locks himself up in his laboratory, punishing himself be obsessing over the physics of re-animation. His Enlightenment ideology has dehumanized him—a revelation that Shelley was passing on to the reader, which she received from her own life experiences as a the wife of a Romantic-Enlightenment poet likewise… Continue Reading...

Politics There are several patterns and outcomes that are fairly common in the realm of political science. Similarly, there are some subjects and points of study that are more common than others. Just a few that come to mind include the ethics of congressional staff, whether third party candidates could or should be a viable option and the demarcation that could or should exist between federal and state authority. For each of these three major examples, there will be an example given of such a thing and an analysis of the overall paradigm and question. While there… Continue Reading...

Reflection and Research Essay on Augustine: Saint Augustine on Evil

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

Behaviorism and Neo Behaviorism Approaches

efforts to develop formal theory and returned to John Watson’s of developing science based on observation of behavior (Weidman, n.d.). Watson introduced the concept of classical behaviorism that focuses on stimulus-response behaviors on the premise that all behaviors are influenced by interactions with the environment. Watson’s classical conditioning focuses on creating a link between a naturally existing stimulus and a past neutral stimulus. On the contrary, Skinner introduced the concept of radical behaviorism, which postulates that the main aim of psychology should be to forecast and control behavior. He also introduced the concept of operant conditioning, which tries to… Continue Reading...

History Of Immigration in United States

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

Psychology Of Motivation and Oxytocin

How can Deci and Ryan's (2008) self-determination theory assist individuals in their personal or professional goals? Deci & Ryan’s (2008) self-determination theory is a theory of motivation that can help individuals set and achieve personal and professional goals. The theory can be applied to almost every area of life, including health choices or interpersonal relationships. One of the most unique features of self-determination theory is that it can be adapted to different applications. As Deci & Ryan (2008) show, self-determination theory distinguishes between different types of motivation including autonomous motivation and controlled motivation. Self-determination theory also takes into account the… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Meditation on Addiction Therapy

While numerous self-report repertoires for mindfulness evaluation have been created, they differ considerably in their factor and content structure, revealing inconsistencies in its nature and meaning. To date, scant information exists with regard to the conditions under which, and the individuals for whom, mindfulness training proves most effectual; however, one can find certain preliminary proofs indicating that its efficacy differs based on individual variances (Keng, Smoski &… Continue Reading...

Towards the end of the 1950’s he all but retired from writing about expressly political subjects, specifically anti-Communism and anti-Fascism pieces, to devote himself to these other literary arenas. A good example of this fact is a volume he produced near the end of his life in 1976, The Thirteenth Tribe, which was influential, and highly innovative, for its approach towards Semitic matters. The crux of the book is that, as demonstrated by… Continue Reading...

Quantitative Research Designs Validity

Validity, in essence, has got to do with the extent to which a given research study measures the accuracy of a specific concept – effectively meaning that a study can be said to have passed the validity test if it accurately mirrors that which the researchers set about to investigate. In quantitative research, as Polit and Beck (2012) point out, “researchers strive to design studies that are strong with respect to all four types of study validity” (p. 303). As the authors further point out, while an attempt to enhance one kind of validity may benefit another form of validity,… Continue Reading...

Is Nursing Theory Important to Profession

Although ultimately nursing is about patient care, theory is ultimately what guides best practices, ensures consistency of care across multiple modalities, and also informs how nurses view themselves, their colleagues, and their role in healthcare. Nursing theory might seem like an abstract issue, but throughout the history of the profession, nurses have consistently demonstrated the importance of clarifying their theoretical perspectives and nursing philosophies. Nursing theory is important to the nursing profession because theory undergirds practice. Research shows how important nursing theory is for nurse education. One Finnish study shows that an empathic and caring nursing theory promotes a constructive… Continue Reading...

Economic Impact Australian Mining Boom

Summary In the period between 2002 and 2012, Australia experienced a mining boom; a period in which the level of exports increased more than threefold and also the investment made in mining as a percentage of the nation’s GDP increasing from 2 percent to 8 percent. Imperatively, during the mining boom period, there was a significant increase in demand for minerals. This is because of the demand for minerals not only locally but also internationally. Therefore, this caused a rightward shift in the demand curve. This leads to the positioning of a new equilibrium price. The comparative theory best explains… Continue Reading...

Introduction An educator who possesses a biblical worldview and a Christian philosophy of education means that the instructor views life, life’s purpose, and all of history from the standpoint of the Christian religion. For such an instructor, the Incarnation is the most important moment in all of history, because it is the moment in which God became Man and the beginning of the redemption of mankind was initiated. The biblical worldview incorporates into such a teacher’s perspective the Old Testament conception of human nature: the fall of man, through the first sin; the loss of the kingdom of Heaven; the… Continue Reading...

Delays in Medicating New Admissions Leading to Discharge Against Medical Advice

Introduction Factors related to hospitals and the patient population influence incidents of discharge Against Medical Advice, also known as AMA (Karimi et al., 2014). There is a high rate of discharges against the doctor’s advice after admission into emergency units. There is a need to probe the reasons behind such a trend (Shirani et al., 2010). It should be noted with concern that AMA is a healthcare institutions’ problem across the world because, in cases where children are discharged in such a manner, the blame cannot fall on these children. Children do not contribute to such decisions (Mohseni et al.,… Continue Reading...

Police Brutality and Behaviorism

of reducing rates of police brutality for all populations. One of the founding fathers of behaviorism, B.F. Skinner, proposed a science of human behavior in which behavior could be measured and controlled using scientific methods and principles (Baum, 2011). Coinciding with radical behaviorism is research in the realm of psychobiology, which shows there are biological causes and effects of behavior. These biological causes and effects can be measured using various means such as physiological tests, blood tests for hormones, and electroencephalograms. Specifically , police brutality can be construed of as a learned response to stressful situations. The stress response is… Continue Reading...

Pathophysiology Of Gastric Acid Stimulation and Production

The digestive fluids that are secreted by the stomach glands aimed at breaking down solid food and to kill bacteria in the stomach are referred to as gastric juices. Gastric acid is produced by the gastric parietal cell located on the walls of the stomach. The region where the gastric juices are secreted into the lumen is the most acidic environment in the human body and is known as the secretory canaliculus (Schubert & Peura, 2008). The secretion of the gastric acid into the lumen occurs in response to a variety of messages from the paracrine, hormonal, and neurocrine inputs.… Continue Reading...

Common Property and Animal Testing

Animal testing has been used since the beginning of the history of science to test scientific hypotheses as well as potential treatments on humans. Those who advocate for scientific testing state that it offers unique benefits that cannot be replicated in experiments not using animals, particularly in regards to treatments that are ultimately designed to be used on humans (Hajar 2011). Before regulations were put into place mandating structured testing protocols on animals before humans, drugs such as diethylene glycol (DEG) and thalidomide, drugs which were put on the market which had negative and lasting consequences for those who… Continue Reading...

Closing the Achievement Gap

Secular humanist ethics appeals [sic] to science, reason, and experience to justify its ethical principles.”[footnoteRef:9] [8: Tom Flynn (2017). ‘Secular humanism’s unique selling proposition.’ Council for Secular Humanism. < https://www.secularhumanism.org/index.php/13#6>.] [9: Flynn (2017), p. 5.] Taken together, these attempts to provide some definitional clarity concerning secular humanism make it clear that proponents reject the worldviews held by those who believe in a higher power, but these attempts break down when it comes to the tenet of holding no belief in anything that “transcends ordinary experience.” In… Continue Reading...

Valuation Of Art

that point and so forth. It is not an exact science, but it is possible to get a good idea. Even so, it must be considered who the appraiser works for and how competent they are. The former of those two is probably the more important item to consider when it comes to the scenario posed for this short report. Indeed, a man bought a painting under the premise that it was worth $3,000 on the resale market. He thought he was getting a great deal given that he only paid a third of that stated value when it… Continue Reading...

Climate Change Evidence

there is growing resistance to the idea. Finally, there is also unfortunate evidence that there lingering disbelief in the science presented in favor of global warming by average Americans. In 2009, 57% of all Americans in Pew Research survey stated that they felt that there was evidence for global warming (“Fewer Americans”). To generate the massive societal and political changes needed to combat warming, more support is likely necessary. Only radical change can at least reduce and contain the effects of more than two centuries of industrial fossil-fuel generating growth.

Lastly, one can see obvious parallels between the “blessed” and lucky nature of children born after World War II and the millennials and Generation Z kids that are rising and failing quite a bit right now. It is indeed called the “boomerang” phenomenon for a reason and morality/lifestyle is absolutely part of the reasons for the tumult. Works Cited Douglas, Susan J.

Homelessness

Social Issue: Burgeoning Homelessness A prevalent and ever-growing social issue in my community is the problem of homelessness. According to the federal government’s annual report on homelessness, the number of homeless people in America has recently increased for the first time in eight years. The West Coast, with its warmer climates, tends to have greater homeless populations than elsewhere in America. Even though the economy in the nation is booming more acutely, the cost of housing continues to rise, and more and more people simply can’t afford a place to live (McEvers, 2017). In southern California, there isn’t a city… Continue Reading...

Mixed Methods Research and Pros and Cons

Although more time consuming and costly, mixed-methods research can also be more fruitful than either qualitative or quantitative methods alone. Mixed methods combine qualitative and quantitative in ways that are suitable for answering a complex set of research questions. Because the researcher can use more than one research design in the same study, mixed methods can “answer a broader range of research questions,” (Center for Innovation for Research and Teaching, n.d., p. 1). However, mixed methods can be like performing two separate studies at once, which does require more resources and time. Commonly used in the social sciences and in… Continue Reading...

Environmentalism and Some Positive and Negative Trends

sustainability. What Adebabola (n.d.) does not mention in his essay is how technology and science are being used to solve environmental problems. As Coleman & Jerbo (2009) point out, technological developments are gradually reducing dependence on fossil fuels, helping farmers enjoy more robust crop yields even in drought and other difficult growing conditions, and helping devise the means for more sustainable water use. Alternative energy is one of the most notable means by which science and technology are helping reduce pollution and mitigate climate change, while also making the global economy more stable and promoting global security. Even China… Continue Reading...

Narrative Design

The narrative research study area aims at engaging with the system that helps people to make sense of experiences and meaning in the greater social context and the social patterns in it (Golsteijn & Wright, 2013). Collaborating with the research subject is one of the highlights of narrative research studies. The subject in research is viewed as a collaborator as opposed to being a provider of information, as led by the researcher’s agenda, under this approach (Moen, 2006). Accounts of experience under narrative research are guided by discussion in dialogue with the subject of the research. Various data collection approaches… Continue Reading...

Britain’s Industrialization and China’s Stagnation

is obvious. China did not have a society that encouraged such experimental inventing, science or processes. Many of these inventors that “invented” valuable products and services to the industrial revolution, did so because they had the time, space and encouragement to engaged in repeated trial and error, a valuable process that allowed them to stumble upon something worthwhile. During the time of the industrial revolution, the Qing dynasty ruled China and shackled the nation’s most brilliant minds into the bureaucracy of the era that was founded in farming and the misuse of the poorest citizens.[footnoteRef:6] Furthermore, the leaders of… Continue Reading...

Grounded Theory and Ethnography in Doctoral

Introduction Qualitative research designs assume many forms, and the usefulness of each depends on the research questions and the theoretical vantage point of the researcher. Five of the main approaches to qualitative research design include narrative research, phenomenology, grounded theory, ethnography, and case studies (Creswell & Poth, 2018). This paper will focus exclusively on two of those qualitative research designs, grounded theory and ethnography, to showcase the strengths and weaknesses of each. Grounded theory and ethnography are similar designs and approaches to research questions. Even some of their methodological considerations are alike, particularly in that both grounded theory and ethnography… Continue Reading...

Personal Self Assessment and Self Awareness

The Mechanistic View The rise of empiricism and the triumphs of modern science gave rise to the view that the body itself can be treated as a discreet system. Although the mechanistic view can be traced back as far as Asclepiades, it was never fully accepted as a viable model of health and healing until the 20th century (Curtis & Gaylord, 2004, p. 8). The mechanistic view predominates throughout the Western world, but even then, traditional and religious beliefs often interact with, overlap, or interfere with the view that the physical body can or should be treated without regard for… Continue Reading...

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf Analysis

Virginia Woolf’s novel Mrs. Dalloway contains many of the hallmarks of the author’s style and thematic concerns, including a critique of gender roles and concepts of mental illness. Protagonist Clarissa, the eponymous Mrs. Dalloway, reflects on the trajectory of her life. Self-reflection is a lens through which she develops a cogent critique of the entire social system in which she lives. Clarissa’s reflections, catalyzed by her observations of men and women in her social circle, comprise a pessimistic point of view. Septimus’s suicide then highlights the fact that there is no way out of the patriarchal structure; there are only… Continue Reading...

in the sample. Both external validity and generalizability are important for applied science, to meet “demands for knowledge utilization in an evidence-based practice environment,” (Ferguson, 2004, p. 16). External validity is important for research, and enabling replication or enhancements of the existing body of evidence. Generalizability is important more for practice. Steckler & McLeroy (2008) also differentiate between different types of external validity including statistical conclusion validity, construct validity, and generalizability. Statistical conclusion validity refers to whether or not the researchers drew accurate conclusions from their statistical analyses, and whether their statistical analyses were appropriately constructed. Construct validity refers… Continue Reading...

even made a broader impact beyond the medical technology and science sectors. Themes Hughes addresses in Genentech include the business practices and processes needed to start a radical, innovative firm, particularly one with a business model based on science. Another major theme covered in Genentech is intellectual property, which is a major concern for the pharmaceutical industry, which eventually became heavily and inextricably entrenched in genetic science. Hughes also covers the theme of ethics: especially the conflicts of interest that can arise between the altruistic aims of academia and applied science and the commercial goals of a profit-driven enterprise.… Continue Reading...

Conflict Management Styles Malaysia Vs Usa

Cross-cultural conflict management According to the research of Geert Hofstede, Malaysia scores a 26 on individualism, which means that it is a collectivist country, characterized by “long-term commitment to the member group”, where loyalty is one of the most important aspects of the culture (Hofstede Insights, 2018). Because collectivist cultures place a value on long-term relationships, and loyalty to the group, these elements help define when conflict exists, and how it is resolved. Indeed, the idea of conflict itself is subject to cultural values – the American view of conflict tends to reflect when two people disagree on something, and… Continue Reading...

Healthcare Advocacy Team & Technology

The healthcare industry has widely adopted IT solutions in the development and maintenance of information systems for this sector. These information system applications will go a long way in boosting medical care goals by reducing costs significantly, increasing efficiency in the process and achieving a zero error. With this, client satisfaction will be realized. At the core of this is the electronic medical records (EHR) which is representative of all the health information of an individual that is available in a database and can be shared across healthcare service providers (Rouse, 2016). Also integral to this system are two components;… Continue Reading...

Professional Accountability and Patient Safety

Assessment 3: Professional Accountability and Patient Safety Defining the Issue: Violence from Patients towards Nurses: In this discussion, I concern myself with ‘violence from patients towards nurses.’ It is important to note, from the onset, that violence meted to nurses by patients is one of the least discussed contemporary nursing issues. In the words of Stevenson, Jack, O’Mara and LeGris (2015, p. 32), “registered nurses (RNs), compared to other healthcare providers are at a higher risk of experiencing violence in the workplace that is initiated by patients and families.” In essence, violence from patients towards nurses includes any act of… Continue Reading...

Policy Analysis Essay on Police Killings Introduction The recent police killings and other forms of abuse of authority by law enforcers in the US reinforce the critical and long-demanded need for policy reforms in the nation, a need that has too frequently been disregarded.

The Portrayal Of Asian American Women

Representation of Asian Women: American Television Sitcoms and Media Introduction American Asian women exist within a culture that is at times resistant at providing a realistic portrait of what an Oriental woman is and how she expresses herself. This can be seen in personalities like Margaret Cho, whose sitcom, All-American Girl forced her to see the reality of how America perceived Asian American women and Oriental people in general. These negative images, stereotypes of Asian American women as 'demon women', 'hookers', and submissive, are translated not just in television sitcoms, but in movies like Ghost in the Shell and force… Continue Reading...

A Sermon About the Importance Of the Covenant

The beauty of God’s covenant with us is that each and every day we have the opportunity to renew our faith and reinvigorate our lives through love. Participating in the sacraments is an act of true communion, for when we participate in the Eucharist we are engaging in a two-way dialogue with God. A covenant is a commitment, a bilateral agreement between God and each of you. Christ made it possible for us to cultivate this special relationship, for it is only through His sacrifice that it becomes possible for us to experience the power of the covenant in a… Continue Reading...

2001 Space Odyssey Film Analysis

Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey is a masterpiece in the science fiction genre. Based on a story by Arthur C. Clarke, the film epitomizes the features of science fiction, including an overarching theme questioning the role of humanity in the universe. The film could just as well be classified as an epic, given its length and breath, as it begins with the origin of human beings through a depiction of evolution from primates, through the story of a space mission occurring millions of years later.

The Relationship Between Parental Involvement and Student Success

Parental Involvement and Student Success: Article Review Although parental involvement is usually encouraged by schools, its precise effects upon student achievement remains controversial. In the article, “A New Framework for Understanding Parental Involvement: Setting the Stage for Academic Success,” published in the RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences, Harris and Robinson (2016) offer a new framework for understanding parental involvement to permit greater systematization in comparisons of studies; their framework is called stage setting, based upon the premise that, “Stage-setters create a life space—the parameters within which the actor’s performance occurs—that corresponds with the intended action”… Continue Reading...

Completed in Florence, Italy, by Dolci in 1670, the painting reflects the style of the Baroque and the typical religious-historical type of subject associated with the Counter-Reformation underway throughout Europe as part of the Council of Trent’s mission to use art to reinforce the principles and doctrines of the Church at a time when Protestantism was undermining the Church’s… Continue Reading...

While there have been other social forces responsible for the current status of women in modern society, gender essentialism is at the heart of the problem. As Boskey concludes, gender essentialism “can be used to justify the idea that jobs traditionally held by women are often accorded less respect and lower pay. Gender essentialism is both informed by gender stereotypes and reinforces them. It can have numerous effects on society” (5). Some of the numerous effects… Continue Reading...

Minimizing Bias and Student Diversity in Assessment

Abstract No teacher can entirely avoid the realities of student standardized assessment. But teachers must make informed choices in the classroom in regards to how students are instructed, based upon individual student needs and awareness of student diversity. There are significant questions regarding the potential biases of many standardized tests, particularly in regards to historically discriminated-against racial, ethnic, and socio-economic groups. Teachers must be aware of these questions and biases and act as advocates for their students on a schoolwide and statewide level to ensure fairness. Ethical Standards in Assessment: Minimizing Bias and Student Diversity in Assessment Education is supposed… Continue Reading...

Labeling Gmos Pro or Con Essay

have already eliminated GMOs and label themselves as such. Ultimately, what is needed is higher-quality, objective science to determine if GMOs are safe as they are currently being used by food companies. At present, unfortunately, there is considerable evidence that the debate on both sides has been tainted by the financial interests of food companies rather than real science. But labeling will not solve the issue or even necessarily alter consumer consumption habits. Works Cited Caplan, A. “GMO Foods Should Be Labeled, But Not For Safety.” NBC. 2016.

Book Trade Between China and France an Assessment

Western literary pieces had to be translated into Chinese. With the West being widely regarded as a beacon of science and democracy, most translations at this time largely focused on scientific articles and works. Most specifically, a variety of books translations of Western literature were for natural science genres. As a matter of fact, between 1912 and 1949, a total of 1,121 literary pieces that largely had a natural sciences bias were made available in the Chinese language and format (figure 1). This period is largely seen as having experienced a boom in Chinese language translations for scientific texts.… Continue Reading...

Monsanto and Gmos

Introduction Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) is a growing problem especially with advances via the Monsanto lobby in Congress. There are several avenues Monsanto can take to generate an environment in the United States that supports GMO crops and GMO ingredients. They can alter the GMO food labeling bill and pressure farmers to adopt use of their patented seeds, among other actions. To thwart these efforts, the American public must act quickly. They must lobby the government against Monsanto and use the evidence from countries like India and Argentina where GMO crops grow, to demonstrate the deleterious effects of GMO. Viable… Continue Reading...

William Gibson's Neuromancer on Technology and Humans

science fiction frequently portrays a dystopian reality to demonstrate the faults and failings in human nature or in human societies. Technology becomes an extension of human nature, enabling people to abuse or exploit. In William Gibson's novel Neuromancer, the author offers a bleak portrayal of the ways human beings use technology. Humans interface with technology in a way that obliterates their ability to relate to one another or experience emotions like compassion and empathy. The protagonist Henry Case is an exception, which is why the audience can relate… Continue Reading...

The alien life form presents the chance for humanity to work together and transcend differences, rather than reverting to war. Yet centuries of human experience have generated a tremendous amount of mistrust among people, so that any alien life form is automatically perceived of as a potential threat. Due to years of colonization and imperialism, it is understandable why many nations would be wary of the aliens. Louise’s challenge is therefore not just to… Continue Reading...

Gmo Food Safety

The first thing that would need to be established is the methodology by which one assesses the concept of safety. Clearly, there are no safety issues in the sense of GMO foods being poison (i.e. having immediate negative health effects). The question of GMO safety therefore is more a question of long-term impacts on human health. A major study on the safety of genetically modified foods determined that, based on the traditional human food consumption patterns, there are no… Continue Reading...

Theories Of Humanistic Psychology History

Humanistic Psychology Humanistic psychology has made a tremendous impact on the overall field of psychology and the social sciences in general. Since Rogers first introduced the concepts of unconditional positive regard, the ideals of professional competence in psychotherapy have changed towards client-centered perspectives and practices (McArthur & Cooper, 2017). However, humanistic psychology often eschews quantitative research methods, diverges considerably from the views in cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis and behaviorism, and has been occasionally perceived or portrayed of as too soft to be relevant to the social sciences (Wong, 2017). More recently, humanistic psychologists have gained ground in acquiring greater credibility for… Continue Reading...

Husserl and Heidegger’s Phenomenology

Husserl and Heidegger’s Phenomenology Phenomenology refers both to philosophical framework and to epistemological orientation. As epistemology, phenomenology has had major implications for the social sciences, providing the fundamental tenets and methods for qualitative research. Originator of the phenomenological approach, Husserl proposed that human consciousness undergirds experience, but that both must be transcended, acknowledged, and set aside in order to reach the truth of any given phenomenon. Husserl therefore favored the use of descriptive methods, which aim for objectivity as much as possible. Husserl’s student Martin Heidegger rejected the notion that it was even possible at all to ascertain some objective… Continue Reading...

Assessing the Benefits Of Marijuana

Introduction The drug, marijuana, is actually not as lethal to human beings as cigarettes or alcohol. Further, it is much less addictive, being generally consumed in far lesser quantities. It is also not strongly linked to accidents, risky sexual conduct, and violence, the way alcohol is. Lastly, one can never lose one’s life to marijuana overdose. While a small share of individuals who consume marijuana do develop addiction, this issue can be easily treated. Marijuana in the form of a medicine proves effective in dealing with various acute symptoms such as wasting diseases, nausea and vomiting. Marijuana is very commonly… Continue Reading...

Behaviorism Psychoanalysis and Hte Psychology

a richer understanding of human consciousness and the human condition. Historical context of the science and practice of psychology helps illuminate the field’s core values. Historical Context and Rationale Although inquiries into the human experience can be traced through the disciplines of philosophy and religion, the first scientific, empirical studies of human nature and behavior began more concertedly in the nineteenth century. William Wundt opened the first real laboratory dedicated exclusively to psychology in 1879, signifying the birth of the scientific study of psychology prior to its fragmentation into different empirical disciplines (Baker & Sperry, 2018). Following initial forays… Continue Reading...

Postpartum Depression and Gilman Yellow Wallpaper

Long before the term postpartum depression became part of the vernacular, Charlotte Perkins Gilman deftly and sensitively describes the complex condition in her short story “The Yellow Wallpaper.” The story describes the prevailing attitudes towards women and their narrowly defined roles in society. White, upper middle class women like the narrator 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,… Continue Reading...

Cow’s Milk and Human Consumption

everyone, it is suitable for most people. The proof, they argue, is not just in science and that milk has a proven track record of not just fighting and preventing diseases in humans. The proof is in the fact that humans have consumed cow’s milk for centuries and have continued to thrive and develop on it. Those who disagree argue that drinking milk has always been unnatural for humans, and now people are finally experiencing aggravated impacts of this. Now that there are so many alternatives to cow’s milk, these other options only highlight how unsuitable cow’s milk is… Continue Reading...

Body Mind and Soul in the Cancer Ward Wit

and says that he applies the rigor he learned in her literature classes to the science of studying cancer. But this is just a superficial rigor. Posner does not appear to have internalized the lessons inherent in Donne’s poems, including the holy sonnet, “Death Be Not Proud.” Rather he regarded discerning the meaning of the poems as kind of puzzle not something with emotional resonance or philosophical significance. Throughout the play, Posner regards the patients and any ethical standards regarding treatment of the patients as a kind of inconvenience. Posner is ultimately a parallel with his teacher. Just as… Continue Reading...

Physical Education and the Zpd

Learning in theory and practice: Vygotsky’s ZPD and physical education in primary education Introduction Age-graded schooling is one of the most common and conventional features of today’s academic environment. For younger learners in the primary education levels, this separation of young children from adolescents may seem on the face of it like a common sense approach to education—yet, as Gray and Feldman (2004) point out, separation such as this actually is more restrictive to the educative experience than it is facilitative. The reason is found in Vygotsky’s zone of proximal development (ZPD) theory. Vygotsky was an early 20th century Soviet… Continue Reading...

Bipolar and Borderline Disorders

Bipolar and Personality Disorder Introduction Approximately 20% of patients diagnosed with bipolar disorder are also found to suffer from borderline personality disorder (Zimmerman & Morgan, 2013). While some of the symptoms and characteristics of both disorders are similar, it is important, as Zimmerman and Morgan (2013) point out, to distinguish between the two, as each requires its own form of treatment in order to allow the patient to overcome the issues associated with each. This paper will discuss the treatment considerations for a person presenting with both bipolar disorder and personality disorder. Comorbid Disorders DSM-5 (2013) states that the diagnostic… Continue Reading...

The Significance Of Relational Contracts

three-part methodology aimed at covering liability protection for a supplier. Although not an exact science, it offers a potential answer to the question of quality control and management of issues or obstacles. Ultimately, how a supplier limits liability depends on various factors like kind of service or product or size of company. The first part is “limit supplier obligations to the customer”. By committing to explicit and clear obligations, a business eliminates any additional problems through uncertain or unclear responsibility to the consumer. (Pecht) For instance, one must exclude common or statutory law implied obligations by defining excuses through… Continue Reading...

In science and math, the presumption that natural and mathematical laws have a consistent and abiding existence (even with certain exceptions) and that causality can be deduced ensures that when the same cause is generated between two distinct phenomena, the same result will occur again. Knowledge may be observed in an inductive fashion, in other words, different phenomena in a variety of contexts may be observed. But deductive logic is still required to arrive at certain basic principles. “Deductive reasoning, or deduction, starts out with… Continue Reading...

Phenomenological Design

Phenomenological Design: An Overview Phenomenology is one of a multitude of different qualitative designs that a researcher can select. Other potential options include case studies, ethnographies, and grounded research. Phenomenology is one of the oldest and most flexible of all qualitative approaches. Phenomenology is a way of knowing that is focused not upon a predefined research question or even a highly specific community or individual like an ethnography or case study. It is a unique form of epistemology or way of knowing. “A paradigm is the patterning of the thinking of a person; it is a principal example among examples,… Continue Reading...

Chomsky Pinker Vs Whorf's Model

Sapir-Whorf debate is central to the study of linguistics and related areas like psycholinguistics and cognitive science. Most linguists can at least agree that humans have a “unique language capacity,” (Levinson 25). Yet the innate capacity to learn language is where the similarities between Pinker and Whorf end. Whereas Whorf radically transformed both cognitive science and linguistics by using empirical evidence to show how language shapes thought, Pinker has also been influential with a nativist, modular, and nativist understanding of human language development. Both theories have their strengths and weaknesses, but ultimately the Whorf-Sapir hypothesis remains far more compelling,… Continue Reading...

It is not surprising, then, that the belief in the existence of God can said to be as old as humankind itself.

Physiology Of Extraversion and Introversion Physiology

Research shows that some personality traits like introversion and extraversion have biological or physiological origins. Eysenck (1983) spearheaded much of the research on the physiology of introversion/extraversion, showing that introverts are essentially more aroused than extraverts. Gale (1983) and Stelmach (1990) have pointed out some methodological weaknesses in Eysenck’s work but generally the principle that extraverts can handle stimulation or distraction better than introverts has seemed to correspond to the differences in these temperaments. The results of these studies have tremendous implications for everything from classroom design to communications. For example, O’Connor, Gardiner & Watson (2016) found that introverts benefitted… Continue Reading...

Within the context of modern ethical philosophy, the normative theory of deontology involves prohibited, allowed, or ethically incumbent choices. That is, deontology is categorized under those ethical theories which drive and evaluate one’s choice of what one should do (i.e., deontic theories), as opposed to virtue/aretaic theories which drive and evaluate the type of individual one is or ought to be. In the context of ethical theories involving choice assessment, deontologists and consequentialists maintain opposite stands (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2016). Deontological Ethics or Deontology represents an… Continue Reading...

colleges as ‘Business Intelligence’. For example, a private university like University of British Columbia has the Business and Computer science Bachelor’s degree. It combines a typical business degree with background and experience in computer science. “The Business and Computer science combined major will give you the technical background and understanding to apply IT solutions in a business context and use them to develop opportunities for growth” (UBC, 2018). Each semester, students take a combination of commerce and computer science-related courses. The official degree name is Bachelor of Commerce and takes on average, 4 years to complete. This kind of… Continue Reading...

Psychology and Sociology Gender Inequality

sometimes called upon first in certain social settings, just as boys are often called upon first in math and science classes. Girls and women who speak up for themselves are considered aggressive; boys and men who do the same are considered strong and assertive. When women exhibit strong characteristics of leadership, they lose their femininity, which comes from being in stereotypical roles that involve nurturing or caring. As a result, some professions like nursing are highly gendered because of the way gender norms, roles, and stereotypes work. Again, most people do not meant to do this on a conscious… Continue Reading...

Boron and Curing Osteoporosis

Boron is a mineral that has seen some controversy in the past. Seen as a poison for bug eradication and a cleaning agent in laundry, boron is often seen as something that should not be ingested when it is called ‘Borax’. However, boron has several uses and ingesting the mineral can be beneficial for those dealing with problematic bone metabolism and osteoporosis. Several new studies have shown boron’s positive effect on bone metabolism in both human studies and rat studies. One study aimed to understand potential effects of daily boron on postmenopausal women. They saw a positive effect from daily… Continue Reading...

As a baccalaureate- prepared (Bachelor of science in Nursing (BSN)) RN, I am glad that my nurse shadowing experience was able to effectively inform me of the several valuable qualities that I need to inculcate and offer me a wealth of information which can be applied to everyday nursing practice, for benefiting patients and ensuring more effective and efficient healthcare service delivery. One example of a key NP trait is critical thinking: I need to be able to engage creatively in rational analysis through banking on latest research and… Continue Reading...

How Scientific Research Works

"The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” by Thomas Kuhn How the Reading Has Affected What I Believe about the Nature of science and What It Can Tell Us about the World science has always been a part of the world: people from the beginning of time have asked questions about nature and the world—and they have based their answers on evidence. Discovering laws or formulating theories is part of the process of science. But so too is something like building or designing or doing mathematics or making a work of art. The science of architecture, or the science of medicine—these sciences… Continue Reading...

Houdini

Daniel’s teacher Mrs. Thorpe urges him to focus on pragmatism and science, what she really meant was that Daniel should stick to the basics, the ground rules of hard work (“Show Me Impossible”). However, what Mrs. Thorpe did not understand completely was that Daniel could apply his diligence and perseverance not just to school subjects like math and science but also to loftier goals and dreams. Daniel admired Houdini because he made the impossible into something real, and Daniel also understood that Houdini did have to practice hard to perfect his tricks (“Houdini”). Indeed, Houdini did work hard, which… Continue Reading...

Improving Global Food Security and the Environment

Leverage points for improving global food security and the environment. science Magazine. Vol. 345. Issue 6194. The article centers on the leverage points for improving global food security and the environment. It is indicated that agriculture accounts for between 20% - 35% of the Green House Gasses (GHG) emission. Due to the need to produce more, agriculture is the major driving force for GHG emission, water quality degradation from soil loss and nutrient runoff as well as water use. This means there is need to have a small set of leverage points that would significantly improve efficiency and sustainability… Continue Reading...

Though Shadyac later recovered from this condition, it was an awakening call that left him with a purpose… Continue Reading...

Education and Leadership in Perioperative Nursing

Nursing Higher Education and Leadership Clinical leadership is very important because of the problems that characterize the health care sector, including workforce shortage, high rates of change, staff chaos, quality issues, and safety concerns, among others. From history, the preparation of nurses for key roles in the health care delivery system is quite important and should not be overlooked. (Joseph & Huber, 2015). I am trained both as a clinical nursing educator and perioperative nurse. Clinical nurse educators attain that title after much experience in nursing. They mainly coach nursing students and the newly graduated ones. Perioperative nurses on the… Continue Reading...

learning institutions have adopted the STEAM approach, where they nurture students around the subjects of science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. This has gained popularity with all the players in the education sector, including educators, students, parents and even the US president. STEAM is viewed as a means to create a long-lasting interest in arts and sciences right from an early age. The subjects categorized under STEAM are somewhat similar, in that they all involve creative processes in the investigation of the subject matter. It is very important to teach such skills to students so as to prepare them… Continue Reading...

Discussion Of Different Logical Fallacies

gluten, and other products that have been billed as unhealthy to the consumer when in fact science has not proven these things to be unhealthy. To strengthen the arguments for public health and safety, it would be best to simply cite meta-analyses of scientific evidence. Assignment 2 I am unfortunately guilty of using a number of different logical fallacies, but the one I use the most might be begging the question, combined with an appeal to emotion. The reason why I revert to begging the question and to emotional appeals is simple: it is easier to use tautologies and… Continue Reading...

Psychology Phenomenology Descriptive Qualitative Methods

an analysis of data. As Broome (2011) puts it, descriptive phenomenology is “an alternative epistemology for human science research,” (p. 2). Relying on the collection of subjective data from subjects, researchers have a unique way of knowing and insight into the human experience—both as it pertains to the individual construction of meaning and to the collective construction of identity and shared reality. However, the descriptive phenomenological method is different from other qualitative methods. The distinguishing feature of descriptive phenomenology is a total lack of presuppositions. Rather than starting from a premise, hypothesis, or theoretical framework regarding what the researcher… Continue Reading...

Reflection The instructional shifts I made that seemed to have the most impact on student learning was to integrate more technology into the classroom experience. Park (2015) notes that interactivity among students is facilitated by technology and in turn helps to boost learning. Personalized learning strategies that seemed most effective were redesigning the classroom to add diversity to how students were situated. This helped stimulate greater interactivity as well. The data does support my general… Continue Reading...

Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods

complement one another, and consider the role of mixed methods designs. Quantitative and qualitative social science study techniques have, for long, remained discrete, barely overlapping, spheres. But, of late, innovations have shed light on quantitative and qualitative techniques’ complementarity (Maxwell, 1998). Complementarily employing both methods offers broader understandings besides facilitating research findings’ confirmation or triangulation using different techniques, thus improving overall result validity and making the research more useful for targeted entities. However, the quest for genuinely complementary research techniques is also a greatly challenging task as it implies extra expenses, in terms of human as well as monetary resources,… Continue Reading...

Logical Positivism and Scientific Research

Response to Language, Truth and Logic by AJ Ayer The Nature of science Ayer makes the argument that empirical science must serve as the basis of all claims, as it is through empirical science—evidence obtained through the use of the five senses—that one knows reality. Ayer (1990) asks, “What valid process of reasoning can possibly lead [one] to the conception of a transcendent reality?” (p. 4). The answer he provides is that there is no valid process: “Surely from empirical premises nothing whatsoever concerning the properties, or even the existence, of anything super empirical can legitimately be inferred”… Continue Reading...

[6: Hau K. Sum and Ravichandran Moorthy. (2013, September). “The Genesis of Kashmir Dispute.” Asian Social science. 9(11), 155.] Compellence by India from Pakistan’s perspective In many ways, the dispute between India and Pakistan over Kashmir resembles a schoolyard fight between two young children with each side claiming the other struck first in an effort to justify their own subsequent compellence. In fact, and perhaps not surprisingly, even the modern scholarship concerning these issues is based on each country’s respective claims to the Kashmir territory. For example, two Pakistani researchers, Majid and Hussain (2016), argue that the Kashmiri people… Continue Reading...

Parkinson's Disease

Abstract This paper examines the impact of Parkinson’s disease on elderly (65+ years of age) Caucasian males. This is an underserved population in the U.S. 1% of all elderly persons suffer from Parkinson’s and 60% of them are of this underserved population. The paper discusses risk factors that may lead to the onset of this disease but recognizes that the etiology of Parkinson’s is still as of yet unknown. It examines some of the most common health issues of this population and identifies existing barriers to care. The key factors and social determinants of health of this population are discussed… Continue Reading...

Research in Education Qualitative Quantitative

For this reason, causation is much easier to determine in the hard sciences than in social science due to the wide range of confounding variables in settings like education. Usually, researchers can only safely determine there is a correlation between two variables. For example, if an education program intervention leads to improved average test scores within a certain school, the research must acknowledge that factors other than the program itself could be responsible for the improved scores.

called attention to the importance of rigorous standards in the social sciences. Education is not always considered a social science, and yet it is—and one with some of the most significant implications for humanity. As Lopez-Alvarado (2017) points out, education is about empowering individuals and enriching society, not just about teaching specific tasks and processes. Educational research therefore has many meaningful effects and should be taken just as seriously as research in any other applied science. While it is understandable researchers become frustrated with bureaucracy, red tape, and daunting regulations that restrict their freedom in research, those rules are… Continue Reading...

Link Between Gender and Culture

Gender and Culture Gender is an important and essential construct in human beings. Throughout generations gender has remained central to the family unit. Normative conditions have always dictated perceptions and expectation with respect to the masculinity of men and femininity of women. Authors like Butler have argued that gender is not an automatic or mechanical construct and that gender authoring should be acceptable and normal. Factually speaking gender is a huge aspect of life that determines how people are recognized and accepted. In the film Zerophilia, Luke struggles with identity due to his condition that allows him to switch between… Continue Reading...

Yin and Stake Philosophical Worldviews

all rational and justifiable statements can be verified scientifically. I hold this same belief because science is really the act of verifying reality. So if a statement or assertion is logical, rational and true, it should be able to be verified scientifically. The opinion that Yin holds is that case study research can produce legitimate, rational and logical findings that are true and thus they can also be verified scientifically. That is why he places so much emphasis on maintaining mindfulness of validity and reliability. Stake’s philosophical worldview was based more upon the ideas of existentialism and constructivism (Yazan,… Continue Reading...

Psychology Statistics T Test and Multiple Regressions

1. If I were designing my research study in the field of psychology, I would most likely use a t-test as the method of data analysis. A t-test is best used when the researcher wants to determine deviations from a normal distribution curve. If there are one or more normal distributions (bell curves), t he researcher can compare the two groups using the t-test method. The variances do not need to be known to perform a t-test either, which is another reason why I would select this method of data analysis in my particular research question. Furthermore, the researcher can… Continue Reading...

Reading Has Affected What I Believe about the Nature of science and What It Can Tell Us about the World Popper (2005) rejects the notion that inductive reasoning can lead to the identification of universals, and he uses the white swan as an example: “no matter how many instances of white swans we may have observed, this does not justify the conclusion that all swans are white” (p. 4)—no, and nor should it. However, one could legitimately analyze the swan still further, identify its species and thus conclude that this species of swan is always going to be white.… Continue Reading...

Direct to Consumer Marketing

Patients watching these ads do not have the expertise or background in medical science to make judgments about a particular medication—all they see is a drug being advertised in the public arena, just like any other product, whether Coke, Pepsi, Ford or Patagonia. Those are legitimate companies that make legitimate products; therefore, the drug companies must also be—that is the kind of cognitive process that goes on. Physicians are obliged to weigh in, however, when patients come to them asking about a drug they saw on television that looks like it will help them. As Lichtenfeld (2011) has shown,… Continue Reading...

Vaccines and the Smallpox Epidemic

that it truly was the only effective weapon against the disease. Not every individual is a firm believer in science, and not every member of the public will accept the information presented them by government agencies or medical professionals. People tend to base their beliefs on their cultural inputs, their personal experience, and sometimes their fears and irrational assumptions. Suspicion regarding vaccinations is nothing new—nor unique. Today’s anit-vax movement emerged partially in response to fears that vaccines contained heavy metals that were causing children to develop autism. Anti-vaccination fears in the past had their own bases—and not all of them… Continue Reading...

Healthcare Challenges in the United States

The Greatest Challenge to US Healthcare The role is played by the government The role played by the government in healthcare is a divisive issue. Many healthcare organizations executives do support the idea of extending healthcare coverage to the uninsured, however, who this is implemented is the cause of concern. There are numerous changes that are taking place in the healthcare industry and the government needs to catch up quickly. Policy development is the role of government and there is a need to ensure that there are timely and applicable policies in place to govern the provision of healthcare services… Continue Reading...

Positive Contributions by Veterans in the Construction Sector Essay

Statement of the Problem The integration of veterans into different business sectors is not a novel idea. Numerous sectors and organizations have been dedicated to facilitating employment of veterans. In the construction sector, different institutions such as Veterans Build America and Hire Our Heroes have made significant strides towards this endeavor. Nonetheless, regardless of the presence of such institutions and assimilation programs for coupling veterans with jobs in the construction sector, measuring their effectiveness continues to be a significant challenge, largely owing to the lack of extensive research in the area. Furthermore, a lot of these programs have faced major… Continue Reading...

Hollywood College Admissions Cheating Scheme Essay

fact that American students lag behind others in math and science or the fact that high school graduates can hardly spell, something somewhere is wrong.  What happened over the past century?  One hundred years ago an eighth grade test looked like a fourth year college exam today.  Standards have clearly fallen—but why? Why America’s Schools are Failing Their Students Maybe it’s the method.  Maybe it’s theory.  Maybe it’s the system overall, which has been dumbed down to allow as many kids as possible to be admitted.  Or maybe it’s the lack of character education.  For whatever reason, America’s schools… Continue Reading...

Nature Vs Nurture Vs Free Will

Nature vs. Nurture The nature vs. nurture argument is one that has been around for many years—especially since the behavioral sciences emerged in the 20th century with the experiments of Skinner and Bandura. It was Bandura’s (1977) theory of social learning that viewed all behavior as learned from one’s environment. Skinner (1957) likewise postulated that it was the “nurturing” side of one’s experience that shaped human activity, thought and expression. Galton (1883) on the other hand felt differently. He predated both Skinner and Bandura and was himself a student of Darwin. He thus postulated that “nature” was responsible for the… Continue Reading...

Health Psychology Social Media Trends

a seismic impact upon how humans cognitively process their environment. According to the Association for Psychological science, getting appreciation from social media in the forms of likes and comments has an addictive potential: “The same brain circuits that are activated by eating chocolate and winning money are activated when teenagers see large numbers of ‘likes’ on their own photos or the photos of peers in a social network, according to findings from a new study in which researchers scanned teens’ brains while they used social media” (“Social Media Likes,” 2018, par.1). Even on a neurological level, when monitoring teens’ brains… Continue Reading...

Difference Between Causation and Correlation

The Difference between Causation and Correlation within the Context of DBA Doctoral Research Study Introduction For growth to occur it is important to understand the concepts of correlation and causation. Correlation can be differentiated from causation in general terms in that correlation assists in the prediction of future events since it indicates what is likely to occur. Causation on the other hand makes it possible to alter the future. Understanding the difference helps ensure that business decisions are made based on measurable variables and tangible facts. When decisions are based on guesswork and assumption there is a high risk that… Continue Reading...

Avoiding Plagiarism Features Of the Apa Style

Features of the APA Style: Avoiding Plagiarism In academia, it is often said that professors and graduate students must publish or perish—in other words, writing published academic articles are very important for building an academic reputation. This means that being associated with new, important, and innovative ideas is vitally important to enhance one’s academic reputation. Out of respect for this fact, and to show professional honesty and integrity, it is important to give credit to people who have developed such new ideas. To steal ideas from an academic is to steal that academic’s livelihood. Even stealing from a graduate student… Continue Reading...

The Stages Of Childhood Development Physical Cognitive

Piaget’s Stages of Development Few theorists have had as strong an impact on developmental psychology as Jean Piaget. While the theories of Lev Vygotsky have offered compelling counterpoints to Piaget’s theories, the stages of psychosocial development Piaget proposed remain salient. In fact, it is easy to combine emerging research on childhood development from infancy to adolescence in terms of Piaget’s stages. As Lightfoot, Cole & Cole (2009) point out, evolutionary theories, information processing theories, and systems theories can all be integrated within the staged concept of development that Piaget proposed. Piaget shows how children develop physically, socially, and cognitively. Likewise,… Continue Reading...

Research Design and Methods Used in Leadership

Data Collection in Leadership As a social science, leadership research may involve any type of quantitative or qualitative data collection method. Qualitative research data collection methods include observation, participant-observation, interview, and document or content analysis (“Data Collection Methods,” n.d.). Quantitative data collection methods used in leadership research may include surveys and experiments, which allow for statistical analysis, the establishment of causality between independent and dependent variables, and the tracking of results over time. Whereas quantitative data collection methods had once been the most commonly used in the social sciences, recent trends in leadership research have… Continue Reading...

Pilot Study on Absenteeism and Achievement

A consistent class attendance is an important factor in academic success of any student. In defense to this, several studies have since quantitatively confirmed this, revealing that absenteeism negatively affects the students’ performance. This because, the students that miss classes on a given date are meaningfully more likely to give incorrect response to questions provided to them in relation to the session materials as compared to those that were present. Nevertheless, there also exist other external factors apart from absenteeism that affects the students’ performance such as, the quiz performance, academic ability and the student’s gender. Institutions should ensure that… Continue Reading...

Freudian Psychoanalytic Theory Of Personality

Personality Psych Analysis of Tony Soprano Psychodynamic Theory Freudian Psychoanalytic Theory of Personality Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory of personality makes the argument that human behavior is resultant of the interrelations amongst three constituent parts of the mind including the id, ego, and superego (Petocz, 1999). This theory of personality lays substantial significance of the manner in which conflict, more often than not unconscious, amongst the areas of the mind end up shaping an individual’s behavior and personality. The Id deals with instantaneous satisfaction of basic physical needs and desires and it functions completely unconsciously. The Superego takes into account social… Continue Reading...

Security for Mobile Devices

Security: Mobile Protection As the Internet has become the dominant means of communicating, sharing information, tending to business, storing data, and maintaining records in the Digital Age, the importance of security for the digital world has become more and more realized (Zhang et al., 2017). Not only do companies have to invest in digital security in order to safeguard against threats and risks such as hacking or malware, but individuals also have to be cognizant of the threats to their personal information and property now that all things are online. This is particularly important for people to consider given that… Continue Reading...

Acute Asthma

Asthma Asthma represents a lasting inflammatory airway condition characterized by hyper-responsiveness of the airways accompanied by repeated episodes of breathlessness, coughing, wheezing, and chest tightness. Such episodes have commonly been linked to airflow blocks which can be spontaneously reversed or sometimes require medication. Roughly three hundred million individuals worldwide suffer from asthma. Among children, boys exhibit greater asthma risk whilst among adults, women exhibit greater prevalence. A grasp of the condition’s pathophysiology (both acute and chronic forms) will facilitate an understanding of how to diagnose and treat patients suffering from it. Experts’ asthma pathogenesis knowledge has greatly evolved during the… Continue Reading...

Healthcare Nursing Patients Caring

an active role promoting healing via alterations to the care context. 2. Caring science The concept of caring has become embedded in nursing to the point where it is often taken for granted as an implied aspect of service delivery. Therefore, when caring is absent from nursing practice or patient interactions and communications, it can have an adverse impact on health outcomes or on organizational behavior. A lack of official caring practices in the healthcare institution can also lead to workplace dissatisfaction and poor morale among employees (Watson, 2009). Caring has had to be revitalized in nursing theory and education… Continue Reading...

The Relevance Of Operating Room Nurse Residency Program

Need for Operating Room Nurse Residency Program A Review of Literature Previous studies have indicated that in other specialties, nurse residency programs have been largely successful in seeking to stem nursing shortages. However, very few studies have attempted to evaluate as well as assess the effectiveness and success rate of nurse residency programs in relation to operating room nurses. It is important to note that there is a looming crisis in the horizon in relation to the shortage of operating room nurses (Brown, Belgard, Washington, and Grueso, 2017). The effects this continued shortage could have on perioperative nursing could be… Continue Reading...

Wait Times and Queuing Theory

Queuing Theory and Wait Times Queuing, otherwise known as waiting in line, is something that most people feel they know how to do, yet struggle with in practice. Efficient queuing is critical for businesses. For airlines and other businesses which provide time-dependent services, queuing is necessary to ensure efficiency. For the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), queuing is also a matter of safety. To ensure all passengers are appropriately screened, the TSA must ensure that flyers are able to wait in an orderly line and receive appropriate direction. Yet when people are forced to wait in line, they are often angry… Continue Reading...

Qualitative and Quantitative Research Differences

Discussion of the Differences Between Quantitative and Qualitative Research Q1. How does a research problem/question guide the determination to conduct a quantitative versus a qualitative research study? In general, qualitative research is exploratory in nature and seeks to understand a particular phenomenon from a particular subject’s perspective (McLeod, 2017). It is open-ended in its focus and the researcher has no predetermined conclusions before embarking upon the study. As a result, it focuses on a small rather than a large population. In stark contrast, a quantitative study seeks to understand a phenomenon in an objective fashion that is generalizable to a… Continue Reading...

It is more like learning that is of the world, that can be used to get a job, to develop a career, or to communicate more effectively with others. The balance between teachers and learners is a kind of balance between the spirit and the world. The learner who is of the spirit is indeed near to… Continue Reading...

Community Psychology Diversity and Social Action Research

The action research component of community psychology blends the best practices of social science empiricism with public policy and organizational psychology. For example, qualitative methods of data collection such as focus groups would be used to address the problems in a community experiencing anti-Semitism or anti-Islam behaviors (Dalton, Elias & Wandersman, 2012). Ultimately, the goal of community psychology will be to affect social change. The nature of that change could be the tangible reduction in incidences of bullying or oppression, to promote gender equity, or to increase overall civic pride. Of course, community psychologists also address mental health issues… Continue Reading...

offered more reliable and valid means of assessing patient symptoms through different approaches like neurochemistry and behavioral science (McGraw-Hill, 2013). For example, during the 1980s, scientific research offered a greater understanding of the role of proteins in cellular degeneration, leading to the development of the first drug ever marketed to treat the symptoms of the disease (Alzheimer’s Association, 2018). Also during the 1980s, a genetic component to Alzheimer’s was first discovered (Alzheimer’s Association, 2018). Brain imaging technologies have also revealed that the region of the brain most significantly impacted by the disease is the Hippocampus, but the disease then… Continue Reading...

Organized crime details a conspiracy among criminal elements who wish to enter into an enterprise engaged in illegal activities as a way of generating dirty money (Dirks & Snyman, 2010). An organized crime is organized as a group with a structure that is similar to some pyramid hierarchy. The groups employ bribery and violence to ensure their operations continue. They also use retribution threats to ensure they maintain external and internal control in the community,… Continue Reading...

Racism and Discrimination Impact on Civil Rights and Student Rights

How Racism and Discrimination Affects ‘Civil Rights’ and Student Rights Racism is the belief that one race is superior to another. It can result in prejudice and discrimination towards people based on their ethnicity and color. Discrimination is the treatment of people in an unfair manner based on their characteristics such as sexual orientation, age, race and gender. Racism is a type of prejudice that most countries fight, do not tolerate and hotly discuss. Countries such as Brazil had once categorized themselves as racial democracies. They allowed people who were racially indifferent to live side-by-side. Such countries are now experiencing… Continue Reading...

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis Multiple sclerosis or MS refers to an autoimmune, chronic condition which impacts physical movement, function and sensation. The problem sets in following neuron insulation destruction (i.e., myelin sheath destruction) within an individual’s central nervous system (CNS) (Cengage Learning, 2013). Symptoms of the disorder start showing up at early adulthood, greatly impacting patients’ domestic, social, and professional lives. As the absence of myelin retards action potential conduct, the disorder is manifested as performance impairment, having a potential destructive influence on patient behavior. MS often entails a relatively progressive onset of behavioral deficiencies and neurological symptoms (Hoang & Shepherd, 2010).… Continue Reading...

These, according to Huether and McCance (2017) are the cephalic phase, gastric phase, and the intestinal phase. As the authors further point out, while the cephalic phase is prompted by the smell, thought as well as taste of food, the gastric phase is prompted by stomach distention. The last phase, i.e. the intestinal phase, is prompted “by histamine and digested protein” (Huether and McCance, 2017, p. 888).

The Historical Context Of Marx Scientific Socialism

Nineteenth century ideologies emerged concurrently with the ongoing entrenchment of secular values and the principles of scientific inquiry. With empirical methods at the fore, philosophers and social scientists also grounded their theories in the prevailing political themes and realities of their time. The industrial revolution had a profound impact on political ideology and practice throughout Europe.[footnoteRef:1] When Karl Marx developed the theories that would inform his most influential works like Das Capital and the Communist Manifesto, his theories blended the methodologies used in history and political theory with those used in social sciences, most notably economics.

Theory-Guided Practice A relationship exists between theories, research, practical application, and education. The latter three, in fact, ought to be directed by the former. Further, research works inform education as well as practical application through offering evidences for nursing instruction- and care provision- related best practices. Education forms the context for learning. Educators need to base their teaching on scholarly evidences in the areas of learning/teaching, learning/teaching theories, and practice arena requirements. Practice contexts are where learners are taught, patients are provided evidence-based care, and nurses acquire experiences to aid them in formulating novel nursing theories and topics for future… Continue Reading...

Durkheim and Weber on Sociology

control society by studying objective facts, while Weber’s methodology led to a focus in the social science on why society could only be understood in terms of people’s perceptions and could only be regulated by a pure bureaucracy, which was however unlikely to ever really or truly be developed. For Durkheim, sociology was the science of society and the study of social facts. For Weber, sociology was the interpretation of the subjective understanding of social action. Weber aimed to identify the cause of social perspectives—how points of view were formed. Weber (1904) stated that “all knowledge of cultural reality...… Continue Reading...

Philosophical Inquiries and the Nature Of Science

The nature of science A number of scientists have the feeling that philosophical inquiries are well outdated. They purportedly can handle matters in a better way than their social constructivists counterparts. Philosophers and physicists are very different from each other, especially taking into account what some renown physicist recently commented on philosophy. Stephen Hawking for instance is on a campaign to tarnish philosophers. He might not be so convincing in whatever points he puts across, but he is winning the heart of the public by his jokes on philosophers. Jokes have… Continue Reading...

Yet today, it is not out of the realm of possibility that money can be made in space – and certainly we can envision a point in the future, far or near, when there is a viable business venture in space tourism, if not other activities. This raises the issue of the economics of space. When there was no monetary, capitalist incentive for space travel, the exploration of space fell to governments. The… Continue Reading...

Managerial Accounting and Business Ethics

Introduction In the business actuality of the present day, where knowledge management together with intangible assets are fundamental sources of competitive advantage, the individual action and behavior of employees ranging from first-line personnel to management can facilitate the success or downfall of an organization’s reputation. This has a substantial effect on share value, the capability to attract and sustain consumers, investors, personnel, or clients, and the risk of violating compliance (Jamshidinavid and Kamari, 2012). Addressing business ethics and responsibility issues within a business entity begins the compliance of the pertinent legislations and codes of practice.

The Problem Of Fallacies

Analyzing Arguments Part I The argument of Halevi (2019) in a recent op-ed in the Los Angeles Times is that Boycott Israel movement is misguided because it will not achieve the objective of those who, like Airbnb, are engaged in the protest of Israeli occupation of Palestinian land. The argument is deductive in the sense that it proceeds from a general set of principles and moves to a specific conclusion. The principles that the argument is derived from, however, are arguable themselves as they could very well be false premises. They and the argument will be evaluated in this paper.… Continue Reading...

The Case for the Resurrection Of Jesus by Habermas, Gary. and Michael Licona,

The authors even give a bit of advice for the reader: “If you believe that the person is not truly seeking the truth at this point,… Continue Reading...

state law enforcement officials like never before, particularly after the 9/11 attacks. Of particular importance are training, forensic science, technical support, cybercrime-related assistance, and specialized services (Davis et al., 2006). Further, state- level agencies have offered additional technical support and training to local-level security organizations. Terrorism has caused local security management to adopt multiple steps for improving preparedness, including revising and improving mutual support agreements for general crises, amending CBR (chemical, biological, radiological) incident response plans, and performing risk evaluations. These mutual support agreements are between local security managers, between local and state security systems, and between local and… Continue Reading...

Fracking

involved to find solutions. One example is the California Council on science and Technology, a “nonpartisan scientific research organization established by the state legislature to advise state officials” (Cart, 2014). The Council’s report published in 2014 paved the way for the federal government to resume fracking operations that had been halted due to safety concerns. However, the lack of data analyzed by the researchers employed by the Council indicates that researchers who are not finding evidence of contamination of well water may not be finding such evidence because they are not analyzing the appropriate sources. As Cart (2014) reports,… Continue Reading...

Discovery Of Planet Pluto

g/cm3 is 33.7% the density of the Earth [6: NASA science. 2019.] Mountains, plains, valleys, and craters are the geological landscape of Pluto. Given that the temperatures in Pluto can be as low as -375 to -400 degrees Fahrenheit, the big blocks of water ice mountains can be as tall as two to three kilometers. The plains contain 98% nitrogen ice. Some parts of the planet have 162 miles craters that have been experiencing signs of erosion suggesting resurfacing of tectonic forces in Pluto. The atmosphere in Pluto is tenuous and thin but expands and collapses depending on the… Continue Reading...

How a Personal Leadership Philosophy Works

can make informed decisions that promote the end results of the initiative. The “ science of control,” which is a key component of the ADRP 6.0 mission command protocol, involves both appropriate information and communications in leadership contexts. As a leader, I need to balance the art of team building with the strategic importance of outlining tasks and operations, delegating, and commanding. The servant leadership model is ideal for teambuilding and communications purposes because it puts everyone on the same page: with buy-in to shared mission, values, and goals. The ethical principles that undergird my leadership philosophy also remain salient… Continue Reading...

Christianity and Psychology Personal Theory

move themselves up to be mature in Jesus Christ (Kim, 2004). All the philosophies begin with pre assumptions. Even science rests on pre assumptions that can never be tested in an empirical way. Psychology is a religion inclined on humans which makes an assumption that a human being is good and he has the power to bring healing to himself but they have no proof about it. On the other hand, behavioral psychology dictates that humans can be compared to animals just that they have a highly developed form and their behavior can be changed by the external stimuli. Again,… Continue Reading...

Toxicology Testing

Toxicology Testing History in forensic science is referred to as application of science into law. The process came at a time when crime needed to be solved using sophisticated means, and institutions needed innovations in the field of science. Many techniques were adopted to determine level of toxins in people’s blood or fluids. It has helped identify harmful toxins that would otherwise not have been discovered. Toxicology testing refers to the methods used to determine toxic levels in samples. The process of toxicology testing includes collecting samples, testing the samples by use of special methods… Continue Reading...

Why Animal Testing Should Be Banned

community is largely restricted to those instances where such experimentation can contribute to potential advances in medical science that can actually save human lives. In this regard, one scientist notes that he “supports a situation where animal use is a last resort. If the testing gives a breakthrough in curing human diseases, then the testing should go ahead” (Yusuf, 2011, p. 37). This view is supported by claims that animal testing is in fact an effective strategy for ensuring the safety of medical products for humans. As Hajar (2011) points out, “The practice of using animals in biomedical research… Continue Reading...
