Quantitative Research

findings makes the following differences in my practice of nursing: 1) Researching and dissertation writing -- especially one that is founded on qualitative techniques -- calls for a different skill set and offers unique challenges, owing to its scope and nature. 2) I understand that I need to read thoroughly, and read some more. This is, in fact, applicable to all research undertakings. After all, a researcher, prior to embarking on his/her own study, must be aware of, and understand, existing research, as well as how other researchers have treated the topic, in order to ascertain what further research is… Continue Reading...

Occupational Health Hazards Associated with Chemicals

control occupational health hazards associated with chemicals in workplaces. Having a plan in writing, which describes how a particular manufacturing unit will execute the HCS, is mandatory for every workplace that exposes workers to dangerous chemicals. Plan preparation is no mere paper exercise. Whatever has been formulated should be put into practice for complying with the law. It is not necessary to have a complex or detailed plan. The intent is only to have a blueprint that aids program implementation -- a guarantee that every facet required has been covered. For instance, the written blueprint needs to have a list… Continue Reading...

Consider the Lobster by David Foster Wallace

is, morality is even something that can and should be applied to the cooking of lobsters). One descriptive writing pattern used in the essay is Wallace's use of rhythmic questioning in order to transcend the issues presented in the article and propel the thesis to a higher, more abstract ground. This is evident in the conclusion of the piece, where Wallace fires six questions off in a row -- over the span of 167 words -- all focusing on provoking the reader to question his own thoughts and feelings on the subject at hand. It is meant, in other words,… Continue Reading...

Book Of Acts History or Theology

is to be taken as historical fact rather than entertainment or some other form of writing. However, Powell is quick to point out that "Acts is not a work of history in the modern sense" (Powell, 1991). Indeed, Powell is quick to point out that Luke does not identify the sources of the material that he prints and he maintains a critical distance from the subject matter that is being stated. If indeed Luke's intent was to use sources to prove that what he was saying was legitimate and absolute fact, he did not do a very good job… Continue Reading...

Eason Jordan Op-ed on Iraq for Cnn

stories he heard for fear of putting his staff and Iraqi citizens in danger. By writing this piece in paragraphs, it looked more like a personal essay than an article. He kept it in the first person and included an introduction and conclusion, noting how he felt about having to hide these stories from the public. Although some of it makes it seem like a letter, the structure, and the transitions in-between paragraphs clearly denotes an essay. Some of it was written in defense of his actions, and then in the end he expressed remorse for having to keep it… Continue Reading...

I Want a Wife by Judy Brady Journal

the patriarchal system of marriage while the woman does not. The descriptive writing pattern Brady uses allows for rich detail, such as, "When I meet people at school that I like and want to entertain, I want a wife who will have the house clean, will prepare a special meal, serve it to me and my friends, and not interrupt when I talk about things that interest me and my friends." The implication is that the husband reaps the social benefits of having friends without performing the hard and behind-the-scenes work that the wife does. The essay "I Want… Continue Reading...

Self Critique Of Writing Progress

Progress My writing level at the beginning of this course was basic. In my earlier education, I had written some but not at any extensive level. I wrote short papers for school and put down my ideas without thinking about order or presentation. Some of my paragraphs and sentences would run on and I did not always complete thoughts that I started. This was because I did not really have the discipline to sit down and examine what it was I had written. I was too much in a hurry to finish… Continue Reading...

Ethical Principles and Code Of Conduct Among Psychologists

The resources in Ashford University Library and the Ashford writing Center were useful in accessing the specific topic and the field of study, and providing important information that answered the research questions effectively.

The theorist associated with behaviorism and chosen for the study is B. F. Skinner, who proposed and focused on operant conditioning. Skinner purposed on using the operant conditioning to change behavior with reinforcements given when… Continue Reading...

Biblical Scholarship Applied to the Pentateuch

Mark and Mathews Presentation Of Jesus’ Disciples

on the gospel of Mathew. Jesus has an impact on people's lives through the discipleship. The writing of the gospel is not meant to provide moral lessons, rather, it is teaching about God. The various weaknesses of the disciples are used to demonstrate Jesus' strength. The self-important feel among them is sharply posted against Christ's humility. Indeed, the gospel writing is meant for those who have accepted the gospel. it does not seek to describe the condition of being a disciple or seek to spread the word. It majorly aims at exposing to the people, the consequences of being… Continue Reading...

Rubens, Caravaggio, and Bernini Baroque Artists

-- "the merging of the real and the divine." The same is felt in the center canvas depicting Matthew writing the Gospel and being directed by the angel -- Caravaggio's reaction is very human; nothing is idealized. Caravaggio: "Death of the Virgin" In this painting, Caravaggio depicts another very spiritual scene "but brings it down to earth" so that it is in "everyday language" -- the tone of the painting is dark, dark colors overwhelm the canvas. The story being told here is the death of the Virgin Mary, mother of God -- yet Caravaggio does so in a… Continue Reading...

It does not have links like The Met site, but if one returns to the home page there are links that give more info on different subjects.

Argument Against Portuguese New World Involvement

Men Folly The work of Restall covers a lot of ground when it comes to classic literature. One of the approaches and treatments that is common in such literature is the concept of "great men." Of course, the topic is a bit silly and under-informed nowadays. This brief essay will cover why precisely this is the case and it will use Restall's work in Seven Myths as the main sources of analysis to make that case. While the use of "great men" in classic literature is to be expected and customary, an obvious modern case can and should be made… Continue Reading...

Multicultural Understanding

to kids who normally see math books exclusively featuring European-American craftsmanship and writing styles. • Educators who fail to do this will end up buying standard, always-utilized books, or books considered as "good enough" and will ultimately realize, at the end of the school year, that they were suggesting all along to their pupils that only Whites are mathematicians. This wrong message is being communicated to scores of school students today, irrespective of their ethnic/racial background. • Classroom organization and appropriate lesson plan formulation (Fish): • A key step in making kids contented with and proud of their culture… Continue Reading...

Klemperers Diaries and National Socialism

Jewish Victim Primary Source: Victor Klemperer's I Will Bear Witness Victor Klemperer was in many ways atypical of many Jewish victims of the Holocaust. He had a relatively privileged position as an academic, writer, and journalist. His identification with the Jewish community was rather tenuous. As noted by Martin Chalmers "Preface" to Klemperer's journals of the period entitled I Will Bear Witness, "Observance and the Reform Synagogue" that Klemperer attended as a child "was extremely liberal" and entailed no dietary restrictions; no bar mitzvah, and in contrast to Reform Judaism today, it was regarded as a "halfway house" between conversion… Continue Reading...

Blood Of Tyrants George Washington and the Forging Of the Presidency

cautioning against government debt (Beirne 376). All these evidences together with Beirne's style of writing that makes such historical events come to life make the interpretation significantly resounding. The author did include enough and sufficient evidence to prove his thesis as he utilizes both secondary data and primary data from George Washington himself such as his letters (Beirne 161). What is more, the argument presented throughout the book is indeed logical as it encompasses the exact historical events that took place and how they impacted the nation's leadership up until the present day. In conclusion, Blood of Tyrants is… Continue Reading...

Three reasons why the author of this response chose the Jerzee Fresh name is no GMO or other artificial processes or methods, no non-necessary antibiotics and it is not soda. Indeed, it is healthy, safe and good for the people that are drinking it and there is really no doubt about this, even if the verdict is… Continue Reading...

Role Of Deuteronomistic History in Enhancing Biblical Undertanding

within two main theological themes, an optimistic and the other is mostly pessimistic. DH incorporated various earlier sources in writing this history, especially in Joshua and Samuel. Nonetheless, using the older sources made no significant changes to the literature since most of the sources used have been uncovered through methods of criticisms by historians. In Kings, we see DH using three sources (1 Kings 11:41; 14:19, 29) and for Joshua, he adapted previous collections of the conquest stories (Joshua 2-11). Unifying techniques in the DH The unifying techniques DH employs are both structural and thematic means for this sprawling… Continue Reading...

end to the engagement), in 1941, and bolted to Berlin, Germany, where he engaged in intense writing. Why he severed ties with Regine was probably not even clear to him; the world, at least, will never know why he took such a drastic step. Nevertheless, Soren felt he possessed a personal shortcoming or impairment because of which he could never marry. He felt he couldn't confide in Regine without disclosing some big secrets of his father. He interpreted his circumstance from a religious standpoint, believing God wanted him to become an "exception," sacrificing his love and the bliss of… Continue Reading...

Challenges Of Nigerian Writers in English

Through this response paper, I will articulate my standpoint, in writing, with regard to the abovementioned article, and the values and concepts expressed in it by the writer. My aim is connecting personal experiences with the topic of the essay. It is my sincere hope that this reaction paper will offer readers a meaningful and transformative reading experience, arising from the interaction between the meanings I construed from the article and my readers' meanings (WHAT A RESPONSE PAPER IS AND IS NOT, 2016). This paper won't forthrightly refute Kehinde's views; rather, it will look into the factors contributing to… Continue Reading...

Compare and Contrast Aristotle and Plato

authors cited above, there are also some distinct differences between them. When it comes to the Divided Line, Plato is writing out a dialog that occurs between Glaucon and Socrates. It is important to note that this work immediately follows the Analogy of the Sun and the Analogy of the Cave immediately follows this work. The main point and thrust of the work is that Socrates is asking Glaucon to envision a line that separates the visible and the invisible. Put another way, he is asked to look at the visible world and the intelligible world. When it comes to… Continue Reading...

Disney Pixar Analysis

rarity, imitability, and organization. If we consider Pixar's major assets, writing talent is now the rarest and therefore most valuable commodity at Pixar. This is difficult to imitate -- they rely on one person to lead the team and always have, so it is not actually know if it can be imitated. Certainly, it is difficult to find top writing talent. Pixar is well-suited to exploiting this talent. This is a major asset to Pixar. Animation talent is next. Highly-valued, but these days there are a lot of computer animators. The big issue is that ones at the top… Continue Reading...

Treatment Modalities for Act and Ipt

elements of ACT provide a wealth of opportunities for exploration and growth. Patients can explore art, music, and writing as a means to get in touch with their thoughts and feelings, expressing and then processing what is going on without reverting to the outmoded systems of judgment that have restricted the patient's ability to change or improve. I also appreciate the 'acceptance' feature of ACT, because as Dewane (2008) points out, acceptance is sorely lacking in other modalities. I would use almost every element of ACT, as there are no techniques that I actively disagree with. However, I would… Continue Reading...

The Things They Carried by Tim O’brien

as a soldier. His words imply that though he has made a success from writing and that his outpouring of memory via storytelling has helped him cope in society, he still strongly holds the opinion that certain experiences are simply unexplainable. What he believes is that every soldier enters this setting of fear, hazard, boredom and dread a mind-set that has been developed from 18 years of education in America about the responsibility of the fighter, about success, dignity and fearlessness, education received via family tales, movies, On Air Personalities etc. (Wells). O'Brien attempts to comprehend and expose grey… Continue Reading...

to using shortcuts and abbreviations in their verbal speech, as if they are writing out a chat message. CMC has been helpful for allowing people to send photos or video to speak for themselves, rather than trying to describe something, and often we use our devices in person for this effect.

CMC has encouraged us to express our views more readily on social media or when we read the news, in comment sections. This has created a more engaged and active society, even… Continue Reading...

If my audience is hostile to my ideas, and I am writing to persuade them, I anticipate what they might say to counteract each of my points. Then, I start the process of outlining and jotting down ideas. What I used to find annoying, restrictive, and tedious I now find to be the most enjoyable aspect of writing. When outlining and brainstorming ideas, I do not need to worry about form and style,… Continue Reading...

Cross Cultural Impact Of China on Vietnam Today

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

Social Shift from Religion to Spirituality

levels, self-discovery, more peace, general "awareness," the audacity to follow one's dreams and an understanding of one's past (Lofton 611). writing occupies center stage in Oprah's self- and spirit- related commentaries. She believes writing marks the foremost step in an overall self-actualization, renewal, and change process. It forms the fundamental way by which her audience practices faith (Lofton 611). Therefore, her religious principles and renunciation of religion may be considered a sleight of hand: Oprah accepts and supports only a few theological existence modes and dislikes a large number of them. In her opinion, religion fails to justify oppression and… Continue Reading...

Failing the Bechdel Test

a speaking role, but more than one woman who speaks and has a name. Coates alludes to this point by writing her son that the very notion of the term people in this country "did not mean your mother or your grandmother" (1), partly because they were marginalized as women. There is a degree of importance associated with names in movies, as named characters frequently are imbued with the sort of characterization denoting they are significant parts of the movie's plot. Many movies fail this facet of the Bechdel test because women are not deemed important enough to warrant more… Continue Reading...

How Confucianism Impacted China

and Taoism together under an umbrella he calls Siniticism. For Shuh, writing from the perspective of the Enlightened irreligious modern thinker, religion was a roadblock for real intellectual progress, and thus Confucianism was a backwards philosophy-religion that served as an obstacle to actual advancement. It was so ingrained in Chinese life that it was to China "what Hinduism has been to India" (Chou 82). As Shuh notes, the Sinitic Age -- i.e., the age of traditional Chinese philosophy-religion (Confucianism) lasted roughly until the 4th century AD, when Buddhism became prominent in Chinese thought, displacing the more traditional Confucianism. The… Continue Reading...

If the position is for a writer, the individual who is intelligent in math but not in writing would not be a good fit. It really does depend on the needs of the department or organization. Generally, an intelligent person will be one who is capable of growing and contributing to the organization.

That person will be more interesting to work with and could stimulate the intellectual curiosity of other members of the team. Unless I just needed someone to… Continue Reading...

Relationship Of Food and Ritual in India

no matter what the celebration. In conclusion, I enjoyed reading these articles and writing this narrative as it allowed me to explore the world of food and relationships and religion in India. India is a country of so many conflicting elements that it truly is a delight to read and write about -- there are so many possible juxtapositions that can be made that serve to really bring out the flavor of Indian life. Hopefully, with this narrative I was able to touch on something truly unique about India. I wanted it to be subtle and not too dramatic --… Continue Reading...

Educational Psychology

regard to the handwriting they use. English-as-Second-Language pupils, particularly pupils whose first languages have an entirely different writing system such as Arabic, might be uncomfortable with new to cursive English script. Hence, reading cursive words, spelling them properly and jotting them down into their notebooks might prove difficult. If such pupils are present in the classroom, educators are advised to utilize block or printed letters (Ashcraft, 2006). Posing Questions and Awaiting Answers Teachers often pose questions to their pupils in the course of lessons to ensure they are engaged and to ascertain how far they have understood what's been… Continue Reading...

Unfair Treatment Of People with Privilege

to the situation, which may only be considered when the full context of being over privileged is considered. writing about a genetic happenstance that many see as an unfair advantage due to being unearned has taken a great deal of thought. writing about this subject will likely bring me ridicule and accusations of being self-pitying or insincere. After all, who wants to feel empathy for someone they think has it all. Given that, I will define why I refer to myself as over-privileged. The term is frequently used, associated with the very wealthy and comes with many assumptions regarding what… Continue Reading...

Representation and Reality Alexie on Film

humility and acceptance. Alexie demonstrates as much in his own writing as he struggles with the fact that he and his fellow tribe were so enamored of the white Indians on screen and so hateful towards the real Indian -- Tonto -- because he reflected them more accurately than the others. Alexie's admission is a humble statement of fact that he and the others really wanted to be the white hero and have the white woman. Alexie's experiences thus compare to Victor's and Thomas's in the sense that they come from a place that is real, honest, yet somewhat… Continue Reading...

Vathek Stories

in mind that the tale is over 200 years old, the style of writing is quite different from the one that we use to in the present day. Subsequent to reading Vathek, my reaction to the story is that it is odd. However, taking into account that it is set in the Gothic genre, to some extent I can say that Beckford does use his imagination remarkably. In addition, the plot thickens as the story goes on and becomes grasping. It is also satirical. It is based on Caliph Vathek, who is said to be a seeker of knowledge… Continue Reading...

Further, writing products and prompts aid pupils in concentrating on logical analysis via precise writing and language skills; thus, engaged pupils within literacy classrooms think continuously through writing, reading, and oral debates of several texts. Educators communicate their regard for diverse pupils by means of various nonverbal and verbal signs, lend a careful ear to pupils' ideas, seek elaborate explanations and clarifications, and are sensitive to their pupils' feelings. Educators' attitude is, on the surface, either unyielding or friendly. However, even underneath a stern shell, educators… Continue Reading...

Sternes Yorick in a Sentimental Journey

length to the point where it was clear that the author was writing in a stream-of-consciousness type of vein. All I could do was just let myself be carried away by the stream. Unfortunately, it was such a bumpy stream that it was almost impossible for me to remember what Yorick (the narrator) was talking about at any one given moment. He seemed so possessed of a sense of sentiment and feeling and yet bent on describing some kind of objective reality that the two impulses invariably clashed with one another. The result was a kind of duel between… Continue Reading...

of what sages "heard" from Heaven, and "manifested" in writing. • In early Confucian doctrine, sagehood is not presented as an attainable goal for all individuals. The ordinary person can work towards the more modest goal of chun-tzu, or Noble Person. • Mencius changed the concept of Sagehood, to show that all human beings have the same essential nature, which therefore means that all human beings can potentially become sages with proper practice and discipline. • Several Confucian texts outline the means by which an individual can attain sagehood. Human Condition • As with other religious traditions, Confucianism comments… Continue Reading...

Moreover, Williams (1820) notes the use of Trillium for "arresting the progress of cutaneous eruptions," applying the herb in powder form topically (p. 332).

Researchers reveal that early childhood motivation to study may be undermined by didactic institutional tactics. Kids need to be able to read for as long as they desire to ensure they identify alphabets. A few leading economists are prompting states to prioritize preschool financing via Head Start. Whenever kids acquire any skill, they will be more likely to easily acquire further skills. Also, younger children have before them a bigger horizon for recovering the fruits of their labor.

The Book Of Daniel and Apocalyptic Literature

Book of Daniel presents a clear tension between the more pragmatic books of the historical Old Testament and the visionary, apocalyptic books of scripture to come. Daniel has been called "the most peculiar and most difficult books in the Old Testament," precisely because the narrative is apocalyptic in nature and tone (Brueggeman, 2003, p. 351). Moreover, there is a historical dimension to the text as Daniel maintains his "distinctive Jewish identity in the presence of indifferent or hostile imperial power," (Brueggeman, 2003, p. 351). The book of Daniel contains within it elements of apocalyptic visionary experience that set the stage… Continue Reading...

of Persian and Greek societies. Ban Guand SimaQian, who is credited with initiating Chinese historical writing, concentrated on the Han empire's history, whilst also accommodating narratives of central Asian nomads and their interactions with the Chinese. Early cultural customs' endurance and the growing significance of intercultural relationships and communication guaranteed a form of universal vision that would endure during later eras. For instance, chroniclers of medieval Europe typically embarked on their accounts by first summarizing biblical history, inclusive of the creation of the universe and ancient Christian, Jewish and Roman experiences.[footnoteRef:3] [2:.

instrumental in laying the groundwork for and building up Athens' political framework. Plato meanwhile served a pivotal role by writing works addressing the role of government and each served to impact the other. Aeschylus, Socrates and Euripides all present heroes and heroines differently. Euripides presents them most tragically and complexly: his Medea is a sympathetic yet monstrously revengeful woman who slays her children to get back at Jason who cruelly leaves her for another woman. Socrates' hero Oedipus is strong, confident and a truth-seeker even to the extent that it leads to his own ruin, while Jocasta is conniving,… Continue Reading...

At the time of writing, the operative clause of this amendment meant that every individual is granted the right to bear and carry arms in case of confrontation. This essentially means that prohibiting handguns including an entire class of arms utilized for self-defense and prohibiting keeping functional guns in the home infringes the Second Amendment. To arrive at this decision, the majority led by Justice Scalia carried out a comprehensive review of the text and historical record of the Second Amendment. Based on their findings, the majority argued that the individual… Continue Reading...

Thus, with a deadline fast approaching I simply began writing about the first thing that came to me that I thought might be captivating enough for my audience -- a car ride that I was on with my mother that ended in a fender bender in a Subway parking lot.

Modern and Contemporary Literature and Culture

Culture English writing has taken a new evolutionary path in its development since Independence. India was observed post-colonially by English writers of Indian origin. While new ideas were being developed, emphasis was placed on religious, socio-economic, filial, and political problems as talking points; these issues captured the national movement sensation and attracted the attention of creative writers. Events like the partition and the resulting communal riots following it, coupled with the problems of caste discrimination, misogyny and the squalor in which the proletariat lived, were the… Continue Reading...

The Nature Of God According to Thomas Aquinas

God should be alive based on this reasoning. If I were writing this argument, few elements would certainly be deleted or not included within the argument. I would include some elements too. It is not comprehensive to show that there is the something else that triggers the motion does not necessarily mean that it is God. It is a force. This force should have some relation with the workings of God. It is awkward to believe that everything is a contingent being. This premise is not well articulated in terms of understanding the core elements of life and contingency. Human… Continue Reading...

their own land" is not something that warrants much sympathy; it is akin to someone writing a book about having empathy for the Bavarians supporting the Nazi party. Finally, Hochschild assumes that class conflict has something to do with the problem of conservativism and the great paradox. The class conflict theme does not make sense because the author interviews several affluent residents who are not only benefitting from the free market but also from the government they hate so much. Class conflict issues are not as important as the intersections between race and class that would have added greater… Continue Reading...

O'Rourke points out that in the 1831 edition in which the introduction appears, Shelley also amended and edited substantive elements of story itself, much to the chagrin of critics, who said that it was "a deliberate attempt on Mary Shelley's part to make a disturbing book more palatable for a conventional readership," (366). If this was the case, it was indeed her publishers pressuring Shelley for these changes, a career author made a ruthless yet strategic decision in so doing.

that Juno keeps the baby and also avoiding what could have easily become proselytizing for the anti-choice movement. The writing is one reason why Juno became relatively successful, earning Diablo Cody an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Adding liberal doses of both wet and dry comedy helps to uplift what might otherwise been a heavy film about a difficult subject. For example, when Juno breaks the news to her parents about her pregnancy, their reaction is ironic and wholly unexpected. After the dad says, "Did you see that coming?" Mom replies, "No, I was hoping she was expelled or… Continue Reading...

learning a language. Learning a language means one becomes proficient in comprehending, speaking, reading, and writing in the language. For some learners, reading may cause anxiety. Reading anxiety denotes the nervousness caused by reading tasks. Often characterized by confusion and the fear of judgment, reading anxiety can hinder learning. Reading anxiety hampers learning through mechanisms relating to classical conditioning (Jalongo, 2010). Classical conditioning is a process in which the repeated combination of a neutral stimulus and an unconditioned stimulus creates learning. The concept of classical conditioning is important for learning and cognition as it explains virtually every human behavior.… Continue Reading...

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

Margaret Atwood set out to depict a society in the future, one that in her eyes had characteristics that needed to be solved from the present. This novel is dystopian in nature which presents a dysfunctional society in the future as seen in the eyes of the author. It is however instrumental to note that most of the works of fiction that are set in the future, are actually meant to help correct the current vices or giving a precautionary note to the society.

Why the Constitution Never Should Have Been Ratified

Federalists, Anti-Federalists and the Constitution The ratification of the US Constitution was an issue that essentially divided the thirteen colonies in two: on the one hand was the push by the Federalists for ratification. Their argument was that the thirteen colonies needed a centralized, federal government to ensure that the colonies themselves did not get into any trouble (either through in-fighting or through foreign wars). The Anti-Federalists, on the other hand, saw the Constitution as a gateway to the exact type of authoritarianism that the Revolutionaries had just opposed in the Revolutionary War. The Anti-Federalists wanted each individual state to… Continue Reading...

Student Loans Essay

example, grouping information, using graphics (boxes and bullets), and writing in "chunks" rather than prose “Less is more" often remains true. Too much information can overwhelm consumers or distract their attention from key content. For example, when redesigning the disclosure box for credit cards, the disclosures quickly became focused on rates and fees. Other information that had been in the box--for example, balance calculation methods--was moved to an area below the box. In the first three rounds of testing of disclosures, furthermore, many participants misunderstood the historical payment examples in the current application disclosure.41 Many participants did not realize… Continue Reading...

Hawthorne Vs Poe Story Comparison

of the context’s natural backdrop or is integrated into the characters’ development. The aforementioned two elements of writing prove central to the styles of Hawthorne and Poe. Hawthorne regards setting to be highly vital to a tale’s comprehension and practicality. However, the author doesn’t devote much time to illustrating several of his tales’ setting, in comparison to the depth of characters’ thinking described for readers’ benefit. For instance, in the story titled “The Minister’s Black Veil”, the character of Mr. Hooper is described in the following words, “If he erred at all, it was by so painful a degree… Continue Reading...

Aristotle and Plato on Aquinas’s View Of the Soul

The Greeks believe that the soul is an essential part of the body since it gives it life. The soul thinks, feels, and chooses[footnoteRef:1]. The interaction between the body and soul influences one another giving rise to the concept of dualism. They also view the soul as a simple form without any parts. Plato postulated that the soul is separated from the body and while the body degenerates, the soul leaves to form another life at death[footnoteRef:2]. Contrastingly, Aristotle considered the soul as a ‘form’ that cannot exist without the body. The following study explicates Aquinas’s views of the soul… Continue Reading...

WHAT THIS MEANS TO ME What I learned from writing this paper was that history is very complex and while you might be able to identify certain variables and factors regarding the cause of an event or trend or change, there are always more factors that can be uncovered or examined from numerous other perspectives and theoretical frameworks. This is why it is important to define your own theoretical framework and identify any biases you might have when you approach a subject. What I knew about the topic matched… Continue Reading...

One of the key strategic lessons and tactics outlined by Sun Tzu was that the general who is successful in the battles makes numerous calculations in his temple prior to the battle whereas the one who is unsuccessful undertakes minimal calculations. Sun Tzu was well known for preparing in advance through the generation of well-established plans and the consideration of a range of tactical combinations that facilitated his success (Brim, 2013). Through adopting Sun Tzu strategy of deep calculations, General Mattis was… Continue Reading...

Lillian Hellman Biography by Kessler Harris

Kessler-Harris is most interested in the context of Hellman’s career and her popularity, both as context shaped Hellman’s own writing, and also how her audiences and critics received and reacted to Hellman. Also in the introduction, Kessler-Harris discusses her reasoning for adding yet another biography of Lillian Hellman to the already large number of books dedicated to that purpose. Answering this question, Kessler-Harris points out that Hellman has been remembered as being a “difficult woman” largely because she shunned the conventional norms of her time. Finally, the author asserts her ambitious goal of showing how Hellman represents the dichotomies… Continue Reading...

Altruism Vs Rands Selfishness

author contends that the default ethical theory for Western society during the 20th century when she was writing is altruism is because of the way it circumscribes the very field of morality. She posits the notion that altruism is the de facto form of morality because it defines values in regards to who benefits from them. As previously identified, with altruism the beneficiary is always another and never the self. Altruism, then, is responsible for reducing the field of morality simply into a matter of whether or not one is doing something for someone else. If so, one is… Continue Reading...

After digesting what they have told me, I would recommend moving onto a group meeting between just the three of us. I would serve as mediator, asking them to consider that they do not need to like each other to perform well on their team. I would then try to foster communication that transcended their individual and cultural differences. 2. Create a strong group identity. This begins with our common objectives as a workgroup.

The Universal and Inclusive Message Of Christianity

Luke would continue to focus on the fundamental principle of the entos hymon, which clearly implies that God is everywhere at once, and for all time. Perhaps somewhat surprised at the trajectory taken by the Christian community, Luke might still note that all churches remain dedicated to the common goal of outreach to the whole world. Karl Rahner’s remarkable statement, regarding the different epochs of Christian or church history, rings true. Whereas the early church was a movement… Continue Reading...

For instance, Brian is portrayed as intellectual, while his colleagues are seen to struggle with writing the essay. The environment in which individuals grow affects their social, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral development. This comes out clearly in the film.

Annotated Bibliography for Criminal Psychology

they help me save time later on when I start writing. The annotated bibliographies encourage me to summarize the literature, determine the strength or credibility of the research methods, and think critically about how that research applies to my own work. The topic I am considering for my annotated bibliography is criminal psychology. Criminal psychology addresses the psychological motivations for committing crime, including personality theories and theories that take into account biological, social, and environmental risk factors. Because I do not yet know what specific area to research, I will start with three general sources about criminal psychology. The… Continue Reading...

The Influence Of William Shakespeare and Robert Burns

26th of April, 1564 (Ellis, 2012). Shakespeare is believed to have begun his writing and acting career in London sometime between the late 1580s and the early 1590s. By 1592, Shakespeare was a popular figure in the London theatre scene. Richard III and Henry VI were some of his earliest plays. Shakespeare would later establish an acting company – Lord Chamberlain’s Men – alongside other partners. He allegedly died in 1616, leaving behind an unmatched legacy of poetry and drama (Marche, 2012). Over the course of his 20 years as a playwright, Shakespeare authored a total of 38 plays… Continue Reading...

The Gospel Of Matthew and Anti Semitism

that many of the authors of the gospels might have self-identified as Jews, or who were at least writing from a Jewish consciousness and Jewish point of view, for a largely Jewish audience. To extricate anti-Semitism from the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) seems challenging. Harrington (2009) is willing to accept the challenge by first showing that the wisdom contained in the synoptic gospels reveals “common ground” between peoples of the book (p. 2). Second, Harrington (2009) offers new frameworks for reading the synoptic gospels, so as not to impose anti-Semitism or to misinterpret the author’s original meaning.… Continue Reading...

from the other. The two writers place emphasis on specific words or ideas, which is unique to their own writing and does not reflect on the other. Yet, the two go together and show a dependency of thought that supports the notion that the two were not conceived independently of one another. The reasons that the texts appear similar and yet dissimilar at the same time are that 1) the audience of the two gospels were different; 2) the writing styles of the two differed; and 3) the context of the two gives each its own special significance that… Continue Reading...

Antwone Fisher

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

Definition Of Learning

by step processes even when one was not explicitly assigned to me. When writing an essay, I would write an outline first. When preparing for a test, I would organize the notes into thematic or chronological order. Similarly, I prefer to use Precision as a learning pattern. Given my predilection for precision, I allowed myself to be methodical in my work, taking pride in generating accurate answers and correcting errors. This helped in group learning assignments in which I was able to work well with classmates that were less oriented towards precision.

Parkland School Shooting Essay

Parkland, Florida Shooting – Rampant Gun Violence in the Nation’s Schools What started as a normal day for the teachers and students at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018, soon transformed into a scene of grisly mass murders and injuries perpetrated by 19-year-old high school student Nikolas Cruz. Unfortunately, this national tragedy was just another in a seemingly unending series of similar massacres of students and teachers in the nation’s schools in recent years and it galvanized the American public attention to the need for stricter gun control laws. Indeed, even as this paper… Continue Reading...

The downfall of Ur and other cities of ancient Mesopotamia was partly due to misuse of natural resources.

Bandura Self Efficacy and Chomsky Skinner Debate

What strategies can you use to improve your self-efficacy in your academic research and writing? Self-efficacy refers to what we believe we are capable of doing. People with high self-efficacy set challenging goals and commit to achieving them, which is what I did when I enrolled in this degree program. If I did not have a high sense of self-efficacy, I could have talked myself out of the program by claiming that it was too difficult or believing that nothing good would come from it. Instead, I believed in myself and worked through all the obstacles that I faced… Continue Reading...

While all his writing wasn’t untrue, the major part of the truth published in his articles was plagiarized. A headline article, 1,831 words long and supposedly drawn from lengthy conversations conducted with half a dozen injured army men, was dependent on the deceptive techniques exploited in several other articles of his, published in the past many months. Akin to his other pieces, he seems to have constructed the above account by partially utilizing facts published on other news companies’ databases. Take, for instance, his… Continue Reading...

The Spaniards had already heard of the writer’s fledgling literary reputation, and were bent on punishing him on the more for it. Koestler was transferred between a couple of prisons in the country and endured as many as three months in solitary confinement (McCrum). The experience was both demoralizing and morbid—some of the more prominent observations Koestler made during this period was the habitual murdering of… Continue Reading...

Religion the Theology and Teachings Of Paul

Paul’s writings are naturally cosmopolitan, his being influenced by Hellenistic culture and philosophy as well as Judaism. As a result, Paul’s contributions indelibly and significantly transformed the mode, meaning, and implications of Christ’s message. As Scholz (2013) points out, Paul penned almost half of all New Testament texts: thirteen books. Paul’s theology is “one of the cornerstones upon which the Christian Church is built,” (Zetterholm, 2009, p. 1). What also makes Pauline texts different is that unlike the synoptic gospels, Pauline letters reflect the author’s own theology. Reading and re-reading Pauline theology offers insight into how early Christian theology evolved… Continue Reading...

Preaching James and Related to Poverty

A uniquely firm and strong message, James 5:1-6 also lends itself to misinterpretation. As Pilch points out, “James does not really denounce wealth as such,” but rather, “condemns the injustice and inhumanity that so frequently accompany it,” (p. 367). James refers to atonement for labor exploitation, for example, and for unbridled greed at the expense of others. It is fully possible to preach compassion, tolerance, and inclusivity while also warning against the pitfalls of materialism. Pilch also shows how the James passage denounces social status and advocates for a true Christian community. The Pope’s writings reflect the balanced perspective related… Continue Reading...

One can find a couple of these outlets on the very same highway, attached to petrol pumps. I elected to observe the behavior of buyers along two aisles in the outlet: the baking and frozen vegetable aisles. Simply staring at buyers is weird and, thus, I selected aisles where I actually had products to buy and could discreetly observe fellow buyers. My aim was noting variations in buyer behavior for diverse goods, besides… Continue Reading...

Rose (2011) writes: The concept of deterrence is as old as war, but determining if deterrence activities and messages are having the desired effect on the adversary decision maker is challenging since the adversary will not readily admit to being deterred. Developing deterrence measures of effectiveness… Continue Reading...

It is entirely possible that the first appraiser was just trying to over-state the valuation of the painting. It is also possible that he simply did not know the proper and correct value of the painting. Regardless, whether the valuation was asserted in writing is going to determine who wins the lawsuit in this scenario. The insurance rider that the new owner the painting made is not really an issue because the stated value of the painting will determine what the cost… Continue Reading...

Ee Cummings Modernist Poet

modernist viewpoint. One of the main and most obvious ways that Cummings represents an overt representation of modernist writing is in the manner in which he subverts traditional poetic structure. Before modernism, poetry was confined to neat lines and stanzas that were identical and somewhat predictable. Cummings deconstructed the stanza into something that had literally never been seen by readers before. Consider the fourth stanza from Cummings’ poem, in Just- it\'s spring and          the                   goat-footed balloonMan          whistles (Cummings) The strategic spacing the Cummings uses creates a sense of movement for the reader. The reader feels as though he or she… Continue Reading...

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

The scenario is this: You are working as an advanced practice nurse at a community health clinic. You make an error when prescribing a drug to a patient. You do not think the patient would know that you made the error, and it certainly was not intentional. Disclosure is an ethical and legal prerogative, showing respect for the patient and… Continue Reading...

Hart (cited in Haralambos, 1995), writing from a Marxist-feminist position, traces marital conflict to changes in the capitalist economic system and their resultant effect on the roles of men and women. It is difficult to know however, how such an analysis might be translated into practical social policies. This is because the Hart program would appear to require in the first place a radical restructuring of the economic system. Whilst this may be desirable for some, it is not achievable in the present political climate. Hart is right however, to… Continue Reading...

Use Of Technology in the Special Education Classroom

& Write Gold to help the school's special needs student population graphically organize their writing (by concept, mind map or outline)” (p. 45). This application has also been found to be effective in helping students with dyslexia learn how to read and write (McCrea, 2014). In addition, other special educational needs teachers have found innovative ways to use technology in their classrooms. One elementary instructional technology coordinator in Iowa installed around 7,000 BrightLink 595Wi projectors manufactured by Epson which transform ordinary classroom walls into enormous interactive mouse pads (Zuger, 2015). This initiative was not inexpensive, though, and BrightLink 595Wi… Continue Reading...

Cultural Identity Essay

a result of the power of the dominant group: the members of the dominant group are often the ones writing dictionaries, being lauded for their accomplishments, and controlling the media through film and television (Orbe, 1998). Members of the dominant culture (who are often men) often systematically devalue members of the muted group, and often deride their methods of communication, calling it weak or nagging (Orbe, 1998). Often when members of the minority culture or women attempt to participate in the dominant culture they are still rejected (Orbe, 1998).  Thus, women and minority members must find ways to assert… Continue Reading...

Rhetorical Analysis Of Alicia Garza’s Herstory

to Garza, it is essential to draw attention specifically to Black lives. writing to an audience Garza presumes to be white, the author points out that #BlackLivesMatter “doesn’t mean your life isn’t important—it means that Black lives...are important to your liberation,” (3). Liberation, freedom, and justice are the cornerstones of American society; Garza shows that when justice is miscarried, all Americans suffer by failing to realize the potential for improving quality of life throughout the country. Garza also explains that the killing of Trayvon Martin was the precipitating event for starting the movement, precisely because the case showed how… Continue Reading...

The Counselor Client Relationship at Work

Discussion Essay Questions 1 An employer is required to provide reasonable accommodations for a disabled worker so long as it does not put undue hardship upon the employer. Reasonable accommodations refer to changes that are implemented either to the workplace environment or to the position occupied by the disabled worker. So long as the disabled worker is still qualified to do the job, the employer, under the ADA, has to accommodate the worker’s disability—so long, of course, as it does not cause the employer undue hardship (Repa, 2018). In some cases, this has made it easier for individuals with disabilities… Continue Reading...

Impact Of Mainstream Media on Perception Of Events

discovered that content analysis of a total of 89 news reports displayed only seventeen lines of writing from transcribed reports dealing with the conflict’s history. Journalists using the term ‘occupied’ failed to explain that it is a military occupation, causing certain audience groups to erroneously believe Palestinians were ‘occupiers’, as they were residing in the disputed territory (Happer & Philo, 2013). Media reactions to the 2008 financial crisis and its consequences demonstrate how contradictory ideologies fight for legitimacy. The crisis’s main instigator was: global banks gave loans of large sums to the inflated American, British and European property markets,… Continue Reading...

Postpartum Depression and Gilman Yellow Wallpaper

the narrator accomplishes an overarching goal: to suppress the individuation and self-empowerment of women through their writing and political activism (Treichler 61). Self-labeling theory and the medical model converge in Gilman’s short story, in the way the narrator self-identifies as being “sick,” while also acknowledging that she needs stimulation, excitement, and the therapeutic act of writing more than she needs the artifice of rest (Gilman 648). Interpersonal theory shows how the narrator’s identity is constructed through social interactions. In “The Yellow Wallpaper,” the narrator expresses conflicting feelings about her husband: she admits he is “careful and loving,” and might… Continue Reading...

Body Mind and Soul in the Cancer Ward Wit

body was dissected by the research scientists, all the more explicit. Bearin herself was initially attracted to writing about Donne primarily because of the poet’s difficulty, and thus her own ego may have been a factor in being drawn to Donne, not an actual love of literature. Her former student does remember Bearin as his professor, 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,… 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...

Systems Thinking in New Product Development

Holmes (2010) discuss highlight the value of systems thinking. writing in the health care context, they argue "the way we think about research, policy and practice inform and interact with each other shapes our efforts." This approach is basically systems thinking – the research and the practice are linked with each other and with policy, in order to generate superior outcomes. They describe systems thinking as a cycle where information begins in the research stage, moves to policy and then into practice. But these linkages are two-way at times, and then the practice step informs research. Conceptualized for business,… Continue Reading...

Working Technology for Students

The computer also eventually stopped working in the second quarter of the year, further depriving my hardworking students of technological support and the ability to use technology to enhance their educations. Although I have tried to persevere without one, it has been difficult. A tablet computer would be useful because students could more easily share one between themselves. The touch-based technology is also more user-friendly for young children. It is also relatively low-maintenance, unlike a traditional desktop computer. I am very proud of… Continue Reading...

Media Portrayals Of Nurses Positive or Negative

in the profession. Nurses can get involved more with the media, being active through letter- writing campaigns and reaching out to journalists. Likewise, nurses should become more proactive with serving as consultants to writers in Hollywood (Talesnik, 2015). Nurses can direct their social activism to local organizations, speaking at schools to show children a different face of the nursing profession than they might have otherwise. Alternatively, nurses may choose to become more involved in national or even global awareness campaigns using social media and blogging, or public speaking engagements. Cohen (2007) also recommends that nurses take stock of how they… Continue Reading...

The Art Of Michelangelo

Christian Artist: Michelangelo Michelangelo’s David (1501-1504) is an example of a work of sculpture by an artist who confessed Christianity and in fact took great pleasure in reading Scripture as well as other religious writings, such as those of Savonarola, a famous reformer in Italy (Vasari, 1998). Michelangelo sculpted, painted and designed architectural works during the Renaissance in Europe. He was commissioned by the Pope to paint the Sistine Chapel Ceiling as well as the sanctuary wall of the chapel where The Last Judgment can be seen. Michelangelo also sculpted the Pieta—but in this paper, his David will be discussed.… Continue Reading...

Sooner or later this should affect the population and make a huge difference’ (Chomsky & Pappe, 2015, p. 85). Thus, goal-oriented action and social change may be the ultimate objective—but, for now, activist blogging might only be a way for Palestinians and those sympathetic to their plight to feel empowered in what often seems a helpless situation amid the heavy hand of the authoritarian security apparatus and the hegemonic state-directed media apparatus. Even the recent protest against… Continue Reading...

Abortion and Public Perspectives Domestic and Global Perspectives

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

However, after researching my subject more, I came across the name Laila Shawa—the artist in the current film.

How to Cite References Properly

Learning how to cite sources properly is one of the most important and fundamental aspects of scholarly writing. Students need to learn how to properly cite sources as early as possible, so that the process becomes second nature. Moreover, students need to know what to cite and why in order to prevent plagiarism. The line between general knowledge and proprietary information can be blurry at times, and only extensive practice can perfect student research habits. Similarly, professors often give conflicting instructions, and different classes require different citation style formats. The multitude of citation styles can easily confuse students.… Continue Reading...

Ethics and Morality Among Peers

Sandy, thanks for sharing. It is great to hear that you enjoy writing poetry. I think that will help you in this class, because poetry is something that can help people reflect and meditate on life in a deeper way. Your conception of morals and ethics is interesting and indicates that you have put some thought into how actions can be related to concepts of rightness and wrongness. I view ethics and morality similarly, but I would put it this way: For me, ethics refers to one’s set of beliefs. Morality refers to the extent to which one’s actions… Continue Reading...

Biblical Issues Related to Community and Justice

What might you say in a homily after reading these materials? There are several concurrent themes in these readings, related to oneness with Christ, as well as the oneness of the Christian community. Being baptized in the name of Christ allows us to become part of the body of Christ. I would focus on this theme in a homily because of the importance of building community in a world that often seems woefully disconnected. How does this reading speak to the doing of justice in a parish? These readings speak directly to doing justice in and through a parish. Gorman… Continue Reading...

The book will detail and discuss their experience helping to run the households of white women and raise white children.

Political Ideology Libertarianism

Introduction The political ideology I align with the most is libertarianism. A lot of Americans pay lip service to liberty, but I am not one of them. The libertarian political ideology is based on the fundamental principle of human liberty: that the government should not interfere in the lives of individuals unless their actions infringe on the rights of others. I believe that the founding fathers of the United States intended for a libertarian government, which evolved out of Enlightenment values and philosophies and made their way into the writings of luminaries like Thomas Jefferson, John Locke, David Hume, and… Continue Reading...

Features Of Chinese Landscape Art Paintings

This exhibition of Chinese landscape painting shows how art functioned as a means of escape, personal empowerment, and also subtle political subversion throughout several successive dynasties. Yet the prevailing theme is even more literal than that: a genuine appreciation of the transformative power of nature. Chinese landscape painters were self-conscious in their desire to capture nature and convey what is symbolizes to the viewer. Kuo Hsi’s writings on the importance of actually going into nature show that the approach landscape artists took was essentially Daoist, and at times even bordering on the mystical (Bush & Shih). These are works that… Continue Reading...

Kublai Khan Improvements to the Chinese System and Ideals

routes. His tradition, the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), prompted the advancement of Chinese writing and structural style. In this manner, Kublai Khan affected China's economy, culture, political structure, literature and architecture amid his rule (Bordo, Taylor, & Williamson, 2003).  In different districts, Kublai Khan searched out specialists, craftsmen, and other employed people doing their civil duties. Accordingly, numerous people from various cultures moved to Yuan. A prime precedent was Marco Polo's investigation inside Kublai Khan's domain as appeared in his travel writings (Worthington, 2015). As portrayed, Polo worked under Kublai Khan's court for a long time. Be that as it… Continue Reading...

The Book Trade in Early Modern China

a war for Chinese hearts and minds. As noted by Chen, in British thought and writing, it was assumed that the Chinese regarded the British as uncultured barbarians, although this was a highly schematic view of how the Chinese actually perceived the outside world. This resulted in the establishment of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge in China (1834-1839), a society which, of course, considered useful knowledge the type that would support a highly Eurocentric worldview. A good example of the perspective of the society was its attempt to “teach the Chinese that the world was more… Continue Reading...

World War 2 and the Asian Population

piece of history in the 1940s. The author’s main purpose in writing the article was to show how Chinese American women were not left out of this dramatic shift during the wartime era but were rather at the front and center of it as it quickly became their opportunity to become respected American citizens in a land where Asians had long been socially and politically marginalized. As Zhao notes, “the war created a favorable climate for Chinese Americans to be accepted by American society” (140), though a strong anti-Asian sentiment still ran through American society following Pearl Harbor.

Europe broke apart as religious wars were followed by new doctrines and worldviews throughout the Continent. The Enlightenment and the Age of Romanticism followed.

justice at every corner and with every interaction. Emerson does not recognize his white privilege in writing “Self Reliance,” and yet would recognize in Angelou her own independence and unwillingness to succumb to the depressive and oppressive conditions of being a caged bird. Just as Angelou goes against the prevailing stereotypes and norms of black female self-empowerment, Emerson states outright, “Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist.” Emerson is more severe in his approach to non-conformity, decrying church and even belittling ordinary human relationships but Angelou also deals with the despair she feels when confronted with those… Continue Reading...

The company should immediately inform the Union Directors in writing in the case that the union affiliated to the contractor fails to forward the name of a minority person, or when the union deliberately impedes the contractor from meetings its obligations. 5. The company should offer on-the-job training opportunities for the minorities and women, for example apprenticeships, trainee programs related to construction and upgrading programs. The company should specifically endorse those programs endorsed by the Department of Labor. 6. The company’s documented EEO policy should be forwarded to the unions and training programs for perusal.

The Origins Of Fascism in Europe

rise of fascism—a power viewed by the people as sufficient to stop the spread of Bolshevism. Paxton’s purpose in writing this chapter is to provide context for the notion of fascism. It is not sufficient, he indicate, to say that Mussolini coined the term and that is all one needs to know about it. There were very real geopolitical and socio-political factors involved that led many people to support fascism and leaders who displayed a tendency towards fascism. Fascism was viewed, Paxton indicates, as the last hurrah of the Old World patriarchs—the elites who did not want to see their… Continue Reading...

The Meaning Of American Identity

Echoes of the Colonial Era in American Identity Essay The American Identity during the 1700s was still very much in development. Prior to the American Revolution in the latter half of the century, the colonists for the most part considered themselves subjects of England and the British crown. They had a king, they had local governments in their territories with members who represented the crown, but their identity as citizens of an autonomous, independent nation was not nearly as full-fledged as it is today. The American Identity really came into being thanks to writings of individuals like Ben Franklin, whose… Continue Reading...

Direct to consumer advertising thus puts pressure on physicians to respond to what is being seen in the public arena by patients who are exposed to direct to consumer advertising by health care companies in the pharmaceutical industry. This is not pressure that would ordinarily or otherwise be there were it not… Continue Reading...

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

Hip-hop and rap have often been criticized for depicting stereotypical depictions of women, particularly Black women, even while striving to offer a cultural counter-narrative of powerful black masculinity that is positive. Kanye West’s song “Gold Digger” famously criticizes women for being only interested in a man’s money, and the video crassly shows women in skimpy clothing gyrating in front of West, even being used as credit card dispensers. Although rap’s narrative may question a white world where the police are trustworthy and criminality is viewed as evil, versus a natural response to the environment, it often embraces a very negative… Continue Reading...

How Religion Works Today

illuminates the role of religion in America today. Although Durkheim was writing about the utility of rites in general as discerned through a prolonged case study featuring indigenous people in Australia, his thoughts on this subject seem to echo—if not presage—religion’s role in the 21st century United States. The author adds that not only do such rites provide the basis for how people interact with each other, but also that these rites are purposefully “destined to excite, maintain, or recreate certain mental states in these groups” (Durkheim, 1915). The diction in this passage helps clarify religion’s role in the… Continue Reading...

Avoiding Plagiarism Features Of the Apa Style

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 or a layperson, is wrong, however, given the importance of ideas in establishing… Continue Reading...

Rousseau Social Contract Theory

Introduction Several theorists have used social contract theory to understand the government’s role in taking care of the public and addressing the public’s needs. Current political issues offer further examination of social contract theory and how it may help with understanding government obligation and public participation. Rousseau's social contract theory is best and most relevant for understanding and offering solutions to contemporary political issues like mandatory vaccination, taxation, and universal healthcare because it offers a foundation from which to explain the perceived obligations of both the government and the public. Rousseau’s version of social contract theory contrasted against other theorists… Continue Reading...

As Gordon notes, the group “accused the US government of inserting provisions into the TPP that would interfere with the low-cost delivery of malaria and hiv/aids medicines to developing nations” (Gordon 20). And then on October 3rd, 2015, U.S. forces bombed the Kunduz region in Afghanistan and destroyed the trauma hospital operated by Doctors without Borders killing 42 people, including patients, volunteers and doctors who had dedicated their lives to helping the victims of the international crises ongoing in the… Continue Reading...

The Relationship Of Reason to Faith

Faith and Reason Paper Introduction Faith starts in the mind and moves to the will. Aquinas is one of the most well-known scholastics to make that argument.[footnoteRef:2] The mind must consent to the truths of the faith and the heart and mind must then act in unison to bear that faith out in one’s life. This is why the scholastics argued that faith rested on reason—for people are rational beings and need reasons to “buy into” an idea.[footnoteRef:3] Anselm’s ontological argument, for example, used reason to prove God’s existence.[footnoteRef:4] However, as others and Scripture show, faith can be obtained through… Continue Reading...

The Things They Carried

They Carried. A renowned American writer, William Timothy O’Brien became famous for writing Vietnam War centered novels. Aside from The Things They Carried, many recognize O’Brien for Going after Cacciato. (Herzog 10) Born in Austin, Minnesota on October 1, 1946, O’Brien spent most of his childhood in Worthington. Being there provided him with a chance at developing both his imagination and artistic sensibility. (Herzog 10) Furthermore, the location became a model for some of the stories in The Things They Carried. One of the main reasons he wrote this collection of short stories was due to the ignorance he… 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...

The Third Culture Kids Of Syria

The issue of Third Culture Kids (TCK) is one that can no longer be wished away. It is a phenomenon that has been in existence for decades now and generations are embroiled in the TCK issue as their preceding generation. The TCK are often referred to as people who have been raised in a culture other than that of their parents or the culture of the country mentioned in their passports. The growing number of TCKs is occasioned by a myriad of reasons in the different parts of the world where these individuals live. The most common cause of TCK… Continue Reading...

Teaching in the Digital World

facilitate their calling in life, whatever it is. So the educator can help to teach spelling or reading, writing or arithmetic, science or history. All of that is knowledge that a teacher can teach; it is different from the kind of learning that is referenced in Psalm 119. 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… Continue Reading...

Goethe and Romanticism

Goethe and Romanticism Goethe, as per the traditional German assessment, was more of a classical author, than a Romantic author. In the words of Smith (2009), “to students of German literature, it is so obvious that Goethe was un-romantic and anti-Romantic that they seldom bother to say so” (71). As per this viewpoint, his works are seen as having been influenced by diverse literary movements, i.e. Weimar Classicism and Storm and Stress. This is a viewpoint that ought to be questioned – particularly after placing his works and writings in the Romantic Movement context. This discussion argues that undeniable parallels… Continue Reading...

I can study manuals and information that is purely mechanical—such as how to change oil in a car—but I do find it to be tedious and more like a chore than something I enjoy.

Moreover, median salary for human resources managers is well over $100,000, making it a viable profession especially considering the relatively low cost outputs required for training and education (United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics,… Continue Reading...

Feminist Theory and International Relations

Introduction The Central Question How important is it that IR (International Relations) scholars reflect on the relationship between power and knowledge? From a feminist theory perspective, it is critical for IR scholars to highlight the relationship between power and knowledge in order to uncover the gender dynamics of power and knowledge in an IR setting. Feminism is more than simply a theory about women—it also provides a framework for understanding gender and gender constructs and how these constructs impact international relations.[footnoteRef:2] In order for IR scholars to excel in their work and more fully understand the parameters of IR, they… Continue Reading...

English Language Learners Action Research Proposal

English language learners experience everyday within the classroom. They have limited proficiency in English and face challenges in reading, writing, speaking, or comprehending the English language (Bell and Bogan, 2013). This proposal gives the suggestion that the use of comics is beneficial for English Language Learners. It can be argued that comics are a remarkable instrument for engaging reluctant students and not only help in appealing students in learning the English language but also in understanding literary themes (Rokhayan and Utari, 2014). Comics signify a dissimilar and exciting aspect in learning the language devoid of forfeiting plot, vocabulary, as… Continue Reading...

The interviewee should give a written consent detailing the permissions granted. Measurement reliability and measurement validity According to Drost (2011) reliability can be understood as extent to which measurements can be repeatable. Whenever different candidates conduct the measurements in differing occasions, using alternative instruments for the same thing, and under varying circumstances the consistency of the outcome is what defines measurement reliability (Drost, 2011). In summary reliability… Continue Reading...

Young Children Impact Of Television Watching

Despite the fact that some TV writing computer programs is designed for toddler advancement, inordinate TV watching can obstruct learning, trade off early youth improvement, and invigorate forceful or reserved conduct. There have been reports that TV has an unsafe impact on psychological capacities, for example, exploration. It also plays a huge role in speech delay in children. Besides, there have even been reports that there is no critical relationship between TV watching time and the semantic capacity of babies (Chonchaiya & Pruksananonda, 2008). Early youth improvement is imperative for fruitful dialect procurement. Etymological… Continue Reading...

Durkheim and Weber on Sociology

The Sociological Method The sociological method was viewed very differently by Emile Durkheim and Max Weber. One focused on objectivity, the other on subjectivity. The consequences of their different methodological principles in terms of each author’s understanding of society can be found in how people today view, discuss, think about and manage the development of society. Durkheim’s methodology helped lead to the establishment of the use of statistics in social analysis and the management of what the Frankfurt School would go on to call the culture industry, as the prime dictator of social facts. Adorno and Horkheimer were more influenced… Continue Reading...

Sartre's Existentialism Is a Humanism

linking negativity with existentialism was Sartre’s chief complaint. This could be because the existentialists were writing novels about man’s search for meaning. People who had already arrived at some goal did not appreciate this quest: they saw it as ignorant and anti-social. They viewed existentialism as pessimistic because it denied the religious truths that men had accepted and embraced for hundreds of years. Existentialists, Sartre argued on the opposite hand, were nothing more than naturalists: they did not need a God or theology to give them their essence. Their essence was determined by their experience and their own existence.… Continue Reading...

Dante: a Life by R.w.b. Lewis

mind, glaring at him for daring to include another woman in his writing—when he had made such a spectacle of himself by attempting to court her, Beatrice, in real life in Florence when she was alive. Still, there is one other poem in which Dante references another woman with whom he committed some error—Parole mei—and it shows that there is perhaps a pattern in Dante’s writing of his falling away from Beatrice, whom he identified early on life as the one for him. And yet through his works he shows himself constantly following away from the perfection devotion that… Continue Reading...

International Law and World Government

Reasoning with clear ideas and examples, what are at least two of the main justifications for the legitimacy, authority, and usefulness of the UN, and two of the main criticisms? Legitimacy means the acceptance and right of a given authority such as a law for governance, or a specified regime. Legitimacy refers to a whole set of governance system. On the other hand, authority refers to a specified position in a government. Government on its part refers to a sphere of influence. Any authority is perceived to be legitimate if it practices the mandate to use power justifiably. Legitimacy is,… Continue Reading...

The American Revolution and Enlightenment Thought

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

Nursing Burnout Issue at a Facility

imitating them. Second language acquisition is a process where an individual learns new vocabularies, writing systems, grammatical structures and phonological components of language. The role of written and spoken communication in children’s lives suggests that the individual differences in the skills in terms of psychological competence, entails both risks and benefits. A strong relationship between spoken language, behavior development and reading is supported by literature. People with limitations in the phonological processing are at a high risk of having decoding problems which later leads to reading comprehension problems. Those with listening comprehension problems, even if they can decode words,… Continue Reading...

Black Power and Black Feminism

But Collins is writing in a more modern time, when Black feminists and African Americans have indeed won more rights and the ability to be heard. She is freer to say what she thinks without fear of losing her career as a writer. Thus, her strength comes from the strength that earlier generations of African Americans showed, allowing her to… Continue Reading...

Plato’s Argument: Art Is an Imitation Of an Imitation

Abstract  Like most western philosophers, Plato focused a substantial amount of energy on aesthetics.  Aesthetics is the philosophical inquiry into beauty.  For many philosophers, the concept of beauty was synonymous with the concept of art.  However, Plato made a substantial distinction between beauty and art.  Not only did he consider art a poor imitation of beauty, in fact labeling it an imitation of an imitation, but he thought that this imitation was somehow dangerous.  It leads to one of the most interesting almost paradoxes in all of Plato’s philosophy.  While Plato appeared to consider beauty inherently good, he viewed art… Continue Reading...

Wergild for instance was a concept best described as “man-payment”—a practice among the ancient Germanic tribes prior to the establishment of Christianity. Man-payment was a law that applied to murder: When someone was killed, the murderer was forced to pay the dead individual’s family to compensate (through shillings) for the life the murderer had taken. Wergild was a form of monetary restitution.[footnoteRef:5] [5: Lisi Oliver, Beginnings of English… Continue Reading...

This opposition to kingship was heralded by the American Revolutionaries and noted in the Declaration of Independence, infused as it was with the spirit of Thomas Paine, a virulent anti-monarchist. The monarchy represented the Old World power structure and what was left it following the Protestant Reformation and the splitting apart of Christendom, which had held distinctly different ideals than the ones that Locke, Rousseau, Voltaire and others proposed.

Argument for Universal Healthcare United States

uses these statistics to claim that universal coverage proves too challenging and complex an undertaking for the American public. writing for the Kaiser Family Foundation, Altman (2016) claims that a single-payer model that epitomizes the goals of universal healthcare is not feasible in the near future but fails to identify the reasons why. In fact, universal health care coverage within the single-payer model is certainly feasible, but it will take a major shift in norms and values. The American healthcare system would benefit tremendously from a single-payer system. One of the reasons why universal coverage is financially feasible is… Continue Reading...

Why the Beatles Were Loved

The fact is that the Beatles were forerunners of the musical artists writing today, artists who have been in pop bands and who have gone on to write music for the screen, operas, symphonies and so on. The Beatles prefigured the epic works of Pink Floyd, the Smashing Pumpkins, and Radiohead. But could the Beatles have been the Beatles had it not been for the 1960s? The 1960s was a decade of upheaval. The Feminist Movement got underway in 1963, one year after the Beatles came out with their first single. Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique in 1963… Continue Reading...
