  • African American Stereotypes and Cinematic Semiotics

    This is a 7 page paper discussing the semiotics of the black film genre. Certain cinematic codes are used in films to portray semiotics or symbolism to the cinematic audience. Some of the most significant of these can be found in the African American film genre which has changed significantly in its symbolic representation over the years. Originally, blacks in films were stereotyped blatantly and retained the status of the servant to the white man, similar to a Mammy’s role in “Gone With the Wind”. After the cultural revolution took place in the 1960s, Blaxploitation evolved as a black film genre which symbolized the new empowerment felt by the black American population. Blaxploitation, although popular with black audiences, did not have a long life span however and African Americans in films in the 1980s were once again relegated to “buddy” or comic relief roles as support to white actors who retained the leading roles. The black film genre changed again in the 1990s when many films were released showing the urban blight, violence and discrimination experienced by blacks. Again, the genre was filled heavily with stereotypes and the symbolic roles of blacks in American society although the stereotype has changed. Recently, film makers have decided to use more subtle approaches to symbolize the African American in today’s society. This approach has lead to films such as “Devil in a Blue Dress” which explores the subtle cultural differences found in African Americans rather than blatant stereotypes and also new films which spoof the previous stereotypes depicted which in effect erases cinematic coding of black roles.

  • Contemporary Studies of Formative Sexual Experiences

    This is a 15 page paper discussing formative sexual experiences. Formative sexual experiences are those which relate to initial sexual intercourse and in most social science investigations are based on heterosexual relations. Chapter 9: Formative Sexual Experiences in “The Social Organization of Sexuality: Sexual Practices in the United States” by Laumann et al in 1994, reports the trends found in a national survey done in the United States. Generally, it was found by the investigators that there has been a steady decline in age over the past forty years in regards to first intercourse and this is consistent with other studies. Other results of the study found that men’s motive for their first sexual experience is largely that of sexual curiosity while women motivations are more emotionally based. Other results found that one in twenty women reported being forced for her first sexual intercourse and a substantial proportion of men and women reported preadolescent sexual conduct with adults. In relation to other studies conducted, Laumann’s results are consistent with those reported in the United States but some factors differ from studies conducted in other areas of the world such as New Zealand, Norway, and Thailand to name a few. While all studies reported that the age of initial sexual experience is declining, the long lasting effects on relationships are not always considered to be negative as reported in a New Zealand study and females and males differ in their sexual motivations in Nordic society. The differences in the studies are often based on the differences on the social norms and structures of each society and because of this Laumann’s report can only be taken in the context of American society in the early 1990s.

This movement was meant as a rebuttal for the largely popular film “The Birth of a Nation” (1915) which glorified the Ku Klux Klan. The actors who starred in the race films were soon integrated into Hollywood films in the 1930s to 1950s but received largely supporting and stereotyped roles as mammies as seen in “Gone With the Wind”. The 1970s brought about another era of race films inspired by the civil rights movement and again a decade of films were released which were made, starred and intended for African Americans. The 1980s saw another era of supporting roles and black/white buddy movies for black actors until the most recent movement in black film making began in the late 1980s. Black directors such as Spike Lee showed the political and economic climate of the urban African American situation which resulted in another boom of race films.

  • Slavery as Presented in Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe

    In 5 pages, the author discusses Harriett Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin or Life Among the Lowly. 'When considering the institution of slavery in America, one must look to one specific text in order to understand what happened during that horrific time in America's past. That work is Uncle Tom's Cabin or Life Among the Lowly, which exemplifies the injustices faced by the Black American in the 1800s. This book was written by Harriett Beecher Stowe and published in 1852. From this tome, one is able to examine how the institution of slavery and a condoning society conspired to destroy the souls of the enslaved Black Americans. As an author, Stowe appears to want the reader to comprehend those realities so that he/she can better understand how to become a human being instead of a virtual animal. Her thesis appears to be that slavery equals destruction, evil, and lack of humanity. Slavery has negative ethical, moral, and religious implications.' No other sources are cited.

Notes that much of what we know of the impacts of secondary smoke relates to specific pulmonary function but little has been done in regard to correlating this knowledge with employee absenteeism. Because of the susceptibility of employees to this environmental contaminant, and its suspected impact of necessitating time off work due to related illnesses, it is imperative that these risk be quantified. This quantification could prove particularly useful in deciding workplace smoking policy. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Mixed Method And Quantitative Research

    10 pages in length. Research is the lifeblood of any industry; to have the capacity to evaluate a certain aspect of a given sector in order to better approach business is paramount to standing toe-to-toe with one's competitors. In order to glean the most effective data pertaining to one's objective, however, it is critical to choose the most appropriate methodology. Ever since the concept of scientific research has existed, there has been a clear understanding that one - and only one - type of method was used for any given study; to veer off this convention track and incorporate more than one approach was to cast a shadow of doubt upon the ultimate findings and brand the researcher unfit to uphold the title. Times have changed to such an extent in the twenty-first century that not only is a mixed method approach acceptable over and above the singular use of a quantitative application, but it is fast becoming the methodology of choice by any researcher worth his or her reputation. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Tyson Foods Case Study

    8 pages in length. The moral dilemma in this particular text addresses the issue of business ethics and integrity. Is it wrong to receive special treatment when it is nothing more veiled bribery? From an outsider's point of view, Tyson Foods was attempting to cover up issues the company did not want brought into the public eye, and Espy was more than willing to accommodate their compromised position. Determining what constitutes values is the fundamental purpose of corporate social responsibility. Given the fact that all of humanity must coexist on the same planet, there has to be a modicum of consideration with regard to business values. If not, then there would be no sense of tolerance or respect for individual life. People have to abide by an ethical code as a means by which to ensure proper behavior among the world’s population. According to Tyson and Espy's behavior, however, one must question who is to determine just what this corporate ethical code will represent, and who is to say that all commerce must follow it? The writer discusses that defining ethics is to define man’s proper values and interests, a concept that must exist within the framework of all business infrastructures. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Smoking Level Increases and Increased Stress on the Job

    A 70 page expanded version of a much smaller paper researching the hypothesis that smokers in high-stress jobs tend to smoke more in response to stress than do smokers in jobs with lower stress levels. Though there was no existing research with which to guide the study, it still obtains solid and statistically valid results that unquestioningly prove that a smoker's response to a high-stress job is that of smoking more than usual. Existing literature emphasizes the relationship between stress and depression, and also that between smoking and depression. Biochemical and psychological research has concluded that there is a strong relationship between smoking and clinical depression, though it is unclear which contributes to the other. This survey does not specifically address depression, but it does give valuable insight to the relationship of stress-related smoking and workplace stress. Includes 4 charts and 4 tables. Bibliography lists 72 sources.

This 5 page paper supports the contention that auditory sensory store (echoic) is precategorical and considers the implication of this theory. In addition, the researcher also provides an overview of studies that could be conducted to evaluate this theory and to assist in clarifying this issue. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Achievement in Web-Based Courses

    A 6 page research paper that offers a critique of a study on web-based learning. Bell (2007) conducted a study that investigated the effects of self-regulated learning (SRL) and epistemological beliefs (EB) on the achievement of individual learners involved in courses that included web-based learning environments. The researcher points out that while online learning has been praised as creating greater access to higher education, it is questionable as to whether or not all students in their late adolescence/early adult years can benefit from this experience, as the online learning environment requires a high degree of self-regulation, as well as “higher levels of intellectual development” (Bell, 2007, p. 523). This critique of this study focuses on the methodology that was employed. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Social History and Sexuality

    A 6 page paper discussing the use of the study of sex and scandal in defining a society or culture of the past. The study of attitudes toward sex and scandal in any society can help inform social definition, but it also needs to be undertaken with some caveats. Using the study of sex and scandal to help further define any society of the past is a valid pursuit. However, those choosing that route must make allowances for the social and linguistic customs and patterns in which events not only occurred, but also in which they were recorded. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Depression And Diabetes: Article Reviews

    10 pages in length. The relationship between diabetes and depression is an unmistakable - and perhaps unavoidable - occurrence of comorbidity. Each of these articles illustrates the importance of patient self-care and appropriate life choices as a means by which to offset the prevalence toward the comorbidity of depression and diabetes. While one study seeks to determine the most provoking factors that draw out the tendency toward both major and minor depression, another finds no more correlation between depression and diabetes than there is with those who do not have diabetes. Similarly, a third study sought to determine if those with either major depression or diabetes were more or less functionally disabled than those with diabetes and comorbid major depression. Another study examines how different locale and ethic composition impacts comorbidity, while the final article provides a broad overview of how depression and diabetes are often misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Qualitative Study Death Sentence' to 'Good Cancer' Couples' Transformation of a Prostate Cancer Reviewed

    A 6 page paper assessing this qualitative study undertaken to assist in informing nursing practice. The focus of this study by Maliski, Heilemann & McCorkle (2002) was to gain insight on how couples coped with the diagnosis of prostate cancer and how they navigated through the decision-making process to prostatectomy and beyond. The investigation and design are sound, but the lack of previous research leaves the current researchers with little guidance in their own study. The paper concludes that the effort is a good one, but is not generalizable to the larger population in that its sample consisted only of a rather homogeneous group in terms of ethnic, socioeconomic and educational backgrounds. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

The evaluation phase of this proposed study is offered in kheeoc5.rtf. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Effectiveness of Sex Education in Teen HIV Prevention

    A 14 page research paper that offers a research study proposal. The hypothesis for the proposed study is that a sex education program that significantly affects the attitudes and norms of participant adolescents and creates positive cognition toward abstinence and delayed sexual behavior can be termed to be effective, as this result can logically be assumed to have a positive effect on the incidence of HIV among adolescents/young adults. The proposal outlines the parameters of the problem and provides background information on the issues, which states the purpose of the proposed study. A literature review provides context, as it summarizes previous research on this topic. The proposed methodology, data collection and analysis are then summarized. Samples of a parental/guardian consent form and a participant asset form are also included. The proposal also includes a 1 page abstract. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Student Motivation Study Proposal

    An 8 page research paper that offers the outline for a proposed research study into motivational factors for high school students. There is an old saying that you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. Likewise, high school teachers constantly try to offer the curriculum in a manner that engages their students minds, but fail to connect with many of the adolescents that they are trying to reach. In 1984 and 1989 a Gallup/Phi Delta Kappa national poll of educators found that lack of student motivation was a top concern of all public school teachers surveyed (Gonzalez, 2002). The question that these teachers ask, that is, "what is the key to unlocking student motivation," is the principal question to be addressed by this proposed study. The paper consists primarily of a review of literature on this topic before discussing possible ways to complete the proposed research study. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Accountability and School Principals Proposal

    A 17 page paper that presents a dissertation proposal. Schools have changed and so has the principalship. Accountability is not the focus word and principals are required to be accountable not only for the smooth operation of the school but also for student achievement. Many experienced principals are saying the multitude of tasks and responsibilities are simply not 'doable' and are retiring early. How are novice/beginning principals dealing with the challenges of expanded demands on the principal? This paper includes these sections: introduction, problem statement, purpose of study, significance of study, literature review and methodology. Standards for principals as published by two organizations are reported along with some of their many responsibilities. 2 Appendices reflect the surveys to be sent to new principals for this study. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Style of Teaching and Gender Impact

    A 12 page paper. An individual's sex is a biological factor but gender is developed through culture and socialization. This paper addresses the question of whether or not gender affects a teacher's instructional approach in the classroom. Some studies have found specific gender-related differences in teaching style while other studies conclude there are no dramatic differences between the approaches used by men and women teachers. As one researcher said: teachers are teachers first and gendered persons second, although even this investigator did find some differences. Another study is reported that compared classroom approaches of experienced and inexperienced teachers; result are reported according to male and female teachers. 5 Tables included. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • Analyzing Suicide A Study in Sociology by Emile Durkheim

    This is a 10 page paper discussing Emile Durkheim’s text “Suicide: A Study in Sociology”. Emile Durkheim’s text “Suicide: A Study in Sociology” (1897) was considered one of the first studies in the social sciences which used a purely scientific and methodological approach to study a social phenomenon. Suicide, for the large part, previously was considered an individual act focused upon mainly by psychologists. Durkheim however related the individual act of suicide to the cohesiveness or imbalance within society. According to Durkheim, during the age of industrialization throughout the 1800s, the incidence of suicides increased as a result of the demise of the traditional social institutions such as the church and social guilds which could not be replaced by the goals of wealth and the division of labor. Suicides were the result of an imbalance of two major social forces: social integration and moral regulation. Durkheim’s focus on the influence of social forces on the individual was highly controversial during his time as it undermined the concepts of “free will and individual moral agency”. Nevertheless, Durkheim managed to establish sociology and the social sciences as one of the major areas of study within France and his theories and methods are still considered significant in contemporary sociology, more than a century later. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • 17th and 18th Century America and White Slaves

    An 8 page consideration of an often overlooked component of American history. While it is impossible to assign a precise number to the percentage of slaves that were white, suffice it to say that this number was significant and that these slaves served in the same capacity as blacks. As a consequence, they began to identify more with blacks in some instances than the did with whites. As white slaves interchanged both culture and genes with blacks, the previously strictly separate ideas of Caucasian verses African began to somewhat blur. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • An Analysis of Conde's, I,Tituba, Black Witch of Salem.

    3 pages in length. Tituba, the only black woman to be accused of witchery, had many conflicting issues in her life, not the least of which were trying to distinguish a balance between suffering and happiness in order to construct a meaningful life. In her attempt to achieve this elusive balance, she must often make a choice between freedom and love. By having to make this choice, one might readily surmise that while freedom, love and happiness were of paramount importance to her, none of them could be achieved without suffering. The writer discusses this topic as it relates to Maryse Conde's "I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem." No additional sources cited.

  • Sibling Rivalry Literature Review

    This is a 7 page review of the literature on the issue of sibling rivalry which has uncovered several trends and several areas which obviously need more study. Several disciplines research sibling rivalry most especially psychology, sociology, communications and pediatrics.

  • Emile Durkheim's Suicide and the Response of Anthony Giddens

    This is a 6 page paper discussing Giddens’ response to Durkheim’s suicide. Anthony Giddens is a modern day sociologist who has proposed a new theory of “structuration” which he considers as his “concern to develop an ontological framework for the study of human social activities”. In doing this, Giddens offers a more expansive and open method in the study of society and institutions in which he hopes will offer an alternative to many of the traditional sociological methods used. Emile Durkheim in his study on “Suicide” provided one of the first systematic presentations of suicide as a sociological phenomenon. Consistent with the functionalist theories however, Durkheim offered three definitions of suicide, egoistic, altruistic and anomic, which were all functional aspects of society. Giddens believed that the functionalist argument could not possibly account for the various factors influencing suicide and within his argument and general dismisses much of Durkheim’s definitions. He also presents other misunderstandings and controversies which surrounded Durkheim’s study on suicide which somewhat validate his claim that the functionalist perspective is not complete in its relation to the discussion of suicide. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • An Anorexia Nervosa Qualitative Study of Family Therapy vs. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

    This is a 9 page paper using a qualitative approach to study cognitive behavioral therapy versus family therapy for treatment of anorexia nervosa. A qualitative study of cognitive behavioral therapy versus family therapy for treatment of anorexia nervosa includes various non-experimental components.

The statement of the problem is then followed by the purpose for the study, if any assumptions can be made and a qualitative review of the current methods of therapies. Several therapies have been used in the treatment of patients with anorexia which includes cognitive behavioral therapy, individual and group therapy, family therapy and pharmacotherapy as well as nutritional counseling. In this study, an assessment of the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy and that of family therapy are examined through a comparative view of current literature.

  • Research Methods, Quantitative vs. Qualitative

    This is a 20 page paper comparing and contrasting qualitative and quantitative research methods. Qualitative research methods are considerably different from those of quantitative research methods. Qualitative research methods are considered to be more dynamic, interactive and holistic in their approach than quantitative methods which are considered more deductive in their reasoning, objective in their observations, more defined and static in their collection, analysis and reporting. While qualitative methods provide for more narrative and detailed reports of certain phenomenon, quantitative methods allow for the study of larger populations and therefore can allow for more generalizations about a phenomenon. Whichever method is used for a particular study, researchers agree that the method should be appropriate for the subject being studied. Largely, quantitative methods are used in the physical sciences whereas studies in the social sciences lean toward qualitative methods or a combination of both research methods. Both methods are also supported by different aspects of quality, credibility, reliability and validity throughout their methodology. Bibliography lists 22 sources.

  • Love in Geoffrey Chaucer's 'Parliament of Fowles' and 'The Book of the Duchesse'

    A 14 page research paper that argues that love plays a pivotal thematic role in two of Geoffrey Chaucer's greatest poems, The Book of the Duchesse and The Parliament of Fowles. While Chaucer is acknowledged as one of the greatest and most eloquent advocates of love in English literature, in these poems, he qualified his endorsement and dedication to love by placing it within certain institutional and societal boundaries. In The Book of the Duchesse, his elegy of consolation over the death of the Black Knight's lady is couched within the parameters established by the conventions of courtly love. Likewise, while the Parliament of Fowles is a love poem, Chaucer pictures love as susceptible to certain natural laws that should be meticulously followed. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

The investigators were successful in outlining their assumptions for the study, participants, methods, assessment and measurements, results and conclusion in addition to including the limitations of their study. Using 271 participants aged 18-70 years old from a deprived ethnically mixed inner city area, the investigators conducted brief individual behavioral counseling sessions with groups based on the stage of change model as opposed to time matched nutrition education counseling. Assessment of self reported number of portions of fruit and vegetables as well as plasma carotene, tocopherol, ascorbic acid concentrations and urinary potassium excretion levels were taken at baseline, eight weeks and 12 months after the counseling sessions. Overall, it was found that consumption of fruit and vegetables increased in the behavioral (by 1.5 portions) and nutrition (by 0.9 portions) groups as well as an increase in the plasma carotene and tocopherol concentrations but the carotene levels were has a significantly higher increase in the behavioral group. The percentage of persons eating five or more portions per day increased by 42% in the behavioral group and 27% in the nutrition group. The investigators were able to surmise from these results that “brief individual counseling in primary care can elicit sustained increases in consumption of fruit and vegetables in low income adults in the general population” (Steptoe et al, 2003, p. 855).

  • Soccer and Sports Psychological Motivation

    This is a 7 page paper discussing motivation in sport with examples from soccer. Motivation in sport is unique in regards to the study of motivation in psychology as many factors which seem to motivate athletes to increase perceived competence and performance are not the same as those recorded in other studies outside of the sport environment. Researchers A.V. Carron and R.H. Cox have compiled collections of motivational models which can be applied within the sport setting. While much of the research can be applied to athletes who compete on an individual level, much of it has also been applied to the team environment. Several research studies in the area of junior soccer have revealed that expectations of others and perceived self-control are high motivators in relation to perceived competence and performance. While many factors such as intrinsic self-confidence are required for high anxiety level components of the game, such as penalty shots, several other components related to expectations of others such as audience support are more consistent indicators of motivation in the sport of soccer. Bibliography list 6 sources.

  • Adaptation Research and Developmental Psychology

    This is an 8 page paper discussing research on adaptation in developmental psychology. Within the field of psychology, adaptation describes “the process of change in organisms or species to accommodate to a particular environment, enabling their survival”. From a developmental, biological and sociological level, there are considered to be two main types of adaptive behavior: closed programs which basically are transmitted from generation to generation and remain relatively unchanged; and, open genetic programs which are greatly influenced from environmental factors (Gale, 2001). In addition, adaptation can be discussed in terms of individuals or in terms of how groups adapt to new environments. Often individual adaptation is studied in regards to the biological or physiological components which are carried from generation to generation and largely these factors are inflexible and remain relatively unchanged. However, there are many studies which examine how social or environmental factors can also affect adaptive behavior and increase the survival in new situations. These studies examine the cultural, family and socioeconomic relationships in groups and individuals and indicate that while initially some individuals may not be flexible or adaptive to new environments, positive adaptation factors such as strong culture bonds, strong family relationships and resilience can increase adaptability in individuals suggesting that individuals are flexible and can be highly adaptive in new environments; factors which increase their chance of survival.

  • Hermeneutics, Theology, and David Tracy

    This is a 12 page paper discussing David Tracy’s understanding of hermeneutics and its application to theology. As a representative of the Chicago School of theology, David Tracy along with his colleagues has challenged the traditional approach to theology with one which is considered more “correlational”. In other words, the Scriptures along with all classic texts cannot be interpreted without taking into account their contextual influences. Correlational theology studies not only the classical theological interpretation of religious texts but also depends a great deal upon the cooperation between “other interpreters of the human condition” including anthropologists, philosophers, sociologists, psychologists and literary scholars among many others (Jeanrond, 1998). This approach also reflects some of the basic concepts of nonfoundationalism as proposed by Thiel (1994) which has fundamental problems with the traditional Christian assumptions which are readily accepted in the interpretation of the Scriptures and also advocates the inclusion of contextual influences on theological study. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Canada and Hockey's Culture of Violence

    This is a 6 page paper discussing the culture of hockey in Canada despite its violent aspects. Canadians are introduced into the world of hockey at a very young age. Young players are drafted into the Canadian National Hockey League during their mid-teens and leave their homes to be billeted across the country in the hopes that they will one day be drafted further into the professional level National Hockey League. Although violence in the game has been studied back three decades, Canadians and players seem to accept violence as a natural part of the game. Violence has been shown to increase depending on the level of play and the “winning at all costs” attitude which has been accepted as the priority. Recent studies have unveiled some violent aspects of the sport which have occurred not only on the ice but also off the ice between the coaches and the players. Despite the level of violence throughout the sport however, Canadians continue to embrace the sport within their own culture which has attained levels of mythical proportions.

  • History, Human Nature, and Psychology

    This is a 5 page paper discussing psychology and human nature over history. The development of psychology and the study of human nature evolved over two thousand years of philosophical theory. During the period of enlightenment scientific thought was beginning to be examined toward the field of the human mind in what was later termed the field of psychology. David Hume in the 1700s and his studies into human nature as a combination of sentimentalism and intellectualism were later revisited and refined by James and Wendt in the 1800s and discussed in relation to human will and conscious thought over actions by Dewey in the 1900s. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Culture, Demographics and Socioeconomics of the Black American Family

    This is a 6 page paper discussing the demographic, socio-economic and cultural characteristics of African American families. Studies of demographic, socio-economic and cultural characteristics of African American families and communities have shown that overall, African Americans report lower incomes, lower education, higher unemployment and poverty rates, and higher mortality and suicide rates than most White communities in the United States. All of these factors have improved over the last decade and unemployment was reported at an all time low in the last U.S. Census. Despite these adversities however, a large percentage of African American families have succeeded in their educational and professional careers. It is believed that this “resilience” is enhanced by several cultural support characteristics which exist within the African American families and their communities. Most African Americans have reported that their most difficult challenges are based on racism and oppressive factors rather than factors which relate to their family or socio-economic status. Racism, oppression, and segregation are also believed to be some of the primary differences in the mortality and suicide rates in the African American population from the white population. In social science studies and in relation to agencies which wish to establish social support groups to help African American families, all of the cultural, socio-economic, and demographic differences must be taken into account. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Criminology Foundations

    This is a 3 page paper discussing the foundations of criminology in relation to contemporary developments. The study of criminology is important in contemporary society because crime affects everyone within society either directly or indirectly. Criminology uses expertise from a variety of disciplines such as law, sociology, psychology, anthropology and economics among others to try and understand the societal processes of the making of collective laws, the breaking of these laws, and society’s reaction to the breaking of the laws. While a crime is basically considered as the breaking of the criminal code, there are many other dimensions to crime which must be considered in order to understand its effect on society. The breaking of the criminal code is only the legal aspect of crime while normative, deviant, social, and basic right perspectives must also be included. Without these intensive studies in criminology, societal laws will not reflect the needs of society or the causes of ongoing criminal behavior. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Nursing Practice Improvement and Qualitative Research's Importance

    This is a 5 page paper discussing the concept that qualitative research is more valuable than quantitative research for improving nursing practice. Quantitative research involving large scale surveys and methods of accumulating cost and performance data in the annual process of health care management is traditionally the most widely used research method and provides for relatively large-scale low-cost studies. However, in today’s environment in which health care has become patient-centered and indicators in health care are based on quality assurance and quality improvement, qualitative research methods are now the preferred measure of effectiveness of health care, most notably in the area of nursing practice. Qualitative studies in nursing practice which involve subjective and interactive interviews and assessments include not only those involved with direct patient contact but patient perception as well. Patient satisfaction and perception has become essential to the determination of areas of concern in the health care system and allow for immediate action in improvement in nursing care. Qualitative research which also involves nursing input and interactive discussions also gives the nursing staff opportunity to comment on the impact of changes within the organization; an interaction which in itself has shown directly impacts and improves nursing practice. Despite the need for large-scale quantitative reporting, qualitative research methods are not only preferred in regards to quality improvement but also provide direct, subjective and immediate opportunities for improving nursing practice and patient care. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Soap Operas And Language

    10 pages in length. Most people watch a television program without any knowledge of how their visual/auditory senses are being manipulated by myriad signs and symbols; in other words, viewers are led down a pathway that instructs how, when and to what extent they will react depending upon the stimulus. Soap operas present some of the most appropriate examples of this type of communicative process whereby language blends with other visual and auditory cues to create an interactive premise that establishes the extent of viewers' role and involvement. This inherent connection between semiotic language and social psychology in relation to media study helps to facilitate an understanding of corresponding developments that have come about over the past several decades in response to soap opera connotation.

  • Erik Erikson: Biography and Theory

    20 pages in length. Erik Homberger Erikson, born near Frankfort, Germany in 1902, was the son of Danish parents whose collective aspirations amounted to a tremendous impact upon better understanding human behavior. The foundation of Erikson's prolific influence upon mankind's developmental activities began in an unconventional manner by virtue of art and language courses when one might readily expect him to be immersed within the bounty of science studies more indicative of his ultimate contributions. His distaste for conventional education compelled him to glean a more worldly instruction as only life experiences can provide; as such, he eschewed formal schooling and went to Europe. Erikson's intersection with psychology arrived when he began as an art instructor for American children whose parents traveled to obtain Freud's enlightenment in Vienna. From there he attended the Vienna Psychoanalytic Institute, which led the way for his entrance into America and ultimate status as the first child analyst of Boston; a position at Harvard Medical School soon followed with others at Berkeley, Yale and the Menninger Foundation.

  • History and Societal Effects of Opium

    8 pages in length. Opium was the drug of choice during eighteenth- and nineteenth-century America.

The study of five terrorist groups, the Action Directe (AD), the North Korean Communist Group, the Islamic Jamiat-i-Talaba (IJT), the Dashmesh Regiment, and the Red Army Fraction (RAF) shows the extent extremists will go to further their causes in both the domestic and international arena. The Action Directe (AD) in France and the Red Army Fraction (RAF) in Germany were mostly active in the 1970s and 1980s when many of their leading members were imprisoned. Although not directly linked with any recent terrorist actions, the members of the AD and RAF are still actively associated with radical or political groups today. The North Korean Communist Group is considered one of the most viable terrorist threats of today as they are large, well-funded, still torture political prisoners and are believed to still manufacture nuclear, chemical and biological weaponry contrary to international agreements. The Islamic Jamiat-i-Talaba (IJT) as the student based affiliated of the political party Jamiat-i-Islami (JI) in Pakistan wish for the education of Islamic youth and for the formation of an Islamic state free of all Western deviant and capitalist influences and continue violent protests to promote this ideal. The recent war on terrorism against the Taliban in Afghanistan has led the IJT to believe that the increase in martyrs for their cause will only increase their recruitment for their group. Finally, the Dashmesh Regiment or 10th Regiment in Pakistan and India wish for a separate Sikh state called Khalistan which is currently on land in India. They have formed alliances with other national and international terrorist groups with the intent of getting their cause well known and have been responsible for several international acts of terrorism. Although their group was diminished when the Indian forces captured many of their leaders, international Sikh supported organizations have been formed in their place to continue their cause.

  • Patau's Syndrome: Trisomy 13

    19 pages in length. One infant in approximately every ten thousand live births will suffer from trisomy 13 chromosome defect, a genetic condition that is often not properly diagnosed until after the child has died just months after birth. This circumstance stems from the fact that an additional – and unwanted – chromosome has attached itself to the fetus’s forming DNA, throwing off the delicate balance required for normal development. Typically, the human body is comprised of millions of microscopic cells that each house many chromosomes, classified as the tiny particles which carry the blueprint for all the characteristics that we inherit. What becomes modified in a Patau’s Syndrome (trisomy 13 chromosome defect) infant is that either the father or the mother is carrying an extra chromosome that goes one over the usual limit; the excessive chromosome is what is responsible for the alteration in the baby’s growth and development, effectively creating physical and mental abnormalities. This additional chromosome occurs as a direct result of genetic mishap at the origin of the egg or sperm or at the first indication of cell division subsequent to conception. In one particular study, trisomy 13 was found as being most common in seventeen out of one hundred twenty-seven infants who were diagnosed with chromosomal syndromes. The writer offers an overview of trisomy 13. Bibliography lists 25 sources.

  • Math Assessment, Authentic Assessment Programs, and Inconsistencies

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the interpretative and inconsistent nature of math assessment and possible authentic assessment programs. Several issues relate to the inconsistent and interpretative nature of math assessment within the educational curricula today. Firstly, on a national basis, studies reveal the range in attitudes in regards to importance math assessment has in the overall educational curriculum. While math assessment is often mentioned, its importance does not seem as highly weighted as other aspects of assessment of school performance. Secondly, within the school systems themselves, teachers in mathematics vary a great deal in their teaching practices which can affect assessment; perception of their students’ abilities based on social factors and past performance; perception of the importance of national and consistent assessment; and desired learning outcomes. There are many educational assessment tools which are available. However, assessment tools vary in regards to their expense, time, and curriculum considerations which can affect whether or not the tool can be usefully applied. One of the goals of the U.S. educational system is be “the first in the world in mathematics and science achievement” and some educational programs are trying to fulfill this goal by not only developing consistent national education and assessment programs but programs which are comparative on an international scale, such as that found within the International Baccalaureate Program (IB).

On the other hand, there are aspects of the film that moralize in a decidedly Christian, conservative, family-values type manner, only to abandon the Christian-context in order to encompass the theme of revenge. Is it a romantic comedy, drama, social commentary on divorce or a revenge narrative? The filmmakers cannot quite decide, so, ultimately, the film viewer is left in a similar quandary. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

The paradox is that even though they were the ones ill-treated, it was the rest of us who bore the greater cost. They have always been assured within themselves of their own worth and did not depend on our ability to recognize that worth. In the process, it was the Euro-centered ones who missed out.

Three of its chapters are about the views of the white women's social welfare network, the black women's social welfare network (excluded from the white women's groups mostly by raw segregation), and the white male social insurance reformer network. Gordon argues that contemporary welfare programs for single mothers were shaped by the ideas and the decisions that went into state aid programs created between 1910 and 1920, programs that were variously called mothers' pensions, widows' pensions and mothers' aid. Various sociopolitical points and arguments presented by Gordon are analytically presented. No other sources cited.

  • Validity or Bigotry in Rap Music Criticisms

    In this well-prepared 5 page essay, the writer argues that there exists a great societal irony in the fact that lyrically-violent rap music is critiqued as destructive to a specific culture and at the same time praised by ‘hip-hop advocates' for its realistic contributions to the social advancement of today's inner city Black youths. It is asserted that critics of rap music fail to recognize it for its redeeming social value. And more importantly, we should be struggling to correct the very real problems that rap describes in its lyrics and not trying to hide or bury them even deeper by attacking the music itself. No Bibliography.

  • The Nature Of Visual Perception

    11 pages in length. People may have eyes with which to see, however, the manner by which they actually visualize is comprised of significantly more than merely gazing at an image. Human visual perception encompasses myriad components that, when working synergistically, create visual awareness. Some of these aspects are strictly physiological in composition (black/white, color, object/motion/depth/multimodal perception, achromatopsia, Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome, color blindness) while others are theoretical in nature (unconscious inference, Gestalt theory, ecological psychology), all of which allows man to visually perceive his world from a diverse perspective. The extent to which visual perception reflects even the most subtle nuances of many disciplines is both grand and far-reaching; that 'seeing' something equates with embracing its imagery through so many variations speaks to the greater complexities of visual perception than most people realize. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • World War I and the East African Conflict Between the British and the Germans

    The "WWI Bush Ghost" of German East Africa.

Its borders ranged from Kenya-Uganda and Lake Victoria in the north; to the Congo, Rhodesia and Lake Tanganyika in the west; to Nyasaland (with Lake Nyasa) and Portuguese Mozambique in the south. The Indian Ocean presented a natural border in the east.)

  • Michael K. Honey's Southern Labor and Black Civil Rights Organizing Memphis Workers

    A 6 page review of the book by Author Michael K. Honey. Honey outlines the societal conditions which were at play in 1930s Memphis Tennessee in comparison to the various laws which were on the books to protect black rights.

This was the case in Memphis but the arrival of the Civil Rights movement and such efforts as the labor movement was soon to turn the tides more in favor of the severely disadvantaged classes in this southern community. The societal move towards unionization of the workplace was particularly advantageous. No additional sources are listed.

  • The Bluest Eye & The Color Purple

    A 5 page essay that discusses Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye and Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, which are similar in that both authors use the structure of their novels as a tool that facilitates the achievement of their thematic purposes. In The Bluest Eye, Morrison’s references to the Dick-and-Jane reading primer aids Morrison in contrasting the mainstream cultural ideal, that is, the world represented in the Dick-and-Jane stories, against the violence of her protagonist’s world. This contrast also serves to underscore the way in which mainstream white ideals are assimilated by black Americans and contribute to their dysfunction and unhappiness. Similarly, in The Color Purple, Walker uses her novel’s epistolary format to dramatize her protagonist’s evolution from an insecure, brutalized girl toward an independent, secure woman with her own voice. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • How Can Today's Society Solve The Problem Of Discrimination?

    3 pages in length. Discrimination is a multifaceted component of contemporary society that has placed a tremendous black mark upon the character of a nation allegedly inhabited by civilized beings. To dissect the overwhelming presence of discrimination is to find it in virtually every social subgroup, not the least of which includes gender, race, religious, workplace, age, economic, social status, sexual orientation and education. Solving discrimination - a prolific problem that perpetually feeds upon itself - people need only reach back to their roots when multiculturalism reflected a rich and rewarding integration whereby everyone benefited from such an alliance, unlike today where cultural ownership has taken form. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Social Effects of Hip Hop

    A 6 page paper discussing positive aspects of hip-hop’s influence on society. At present, at least the “clean” versions of much of today’s rap is beneficial to society in that it diminishes the effects of racial prejudice, as predicted by Lewin’s theory. It has the ability to overturn the typical power pattern common in the US in all other areas of life in that rappers overwhelmingly are African-American, being followed by legions of white teens. They are followed by black teens as well; the surprising factor is that millions of whites fall so easily into the step called by the music industry in general and hip-hop specifically. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Civil Rights' Struggles of African American Women

Robnett recognized that women were instrumental in many aspects of the Black Power Movement, but that they were not recognized as leaders of a movement that was lead by men and seemed inherently sexist.

  • Shattered Dreams in Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

    6 pages in length. The shattering of dreams, goals and ambitions in Ralph Ellison's 'Invisible Man' speak to the false hope and often complete disillusionment the black community experienced throughout the early to mid part of the twentieth century. While the author may attempt to convey a sense of accomplishment in some aspects, one can easily surmise that what is primarily portrayed in this one-time published novelist's account is that of a shattering relationship with racism. The writer discusses how Ellison masterfully succeeds achieving this perceived perspective by way of his protagonist's adventure, carefully illustrating the vast and varied intricacies that accompany racially intolerant attitudes of that time. No additional sources cited.

The writer reviews the author's book, as well as dicusses how Larsen is able to convey a significant sense of urgency in relation to Robeson's desire to break free from the oppressive chains of prejudice.

  • Business Applicability and Common Morality

    6 pages in length. The concepts of right and wrong seem so simple on the surface. Webster's defines morality as adherence to a standard of "right human conduct." Superficially, that definition would be easy for the "simple" to understand. When the focus is narrowed, however, it seems that the concept of morality grays in its boundaries. Morality is not only the black and white that the "simple" so seemingly effortlessly can see, with that clear line of demarcation between it and immorality. Focus is increasingly narrowed in our harried lives of today, but all of us are charged with keeping vigilance on the level of standard we will tolerate. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Studies and Recommendations on Burnout of Nurses in Oman and Other Countries

    This is a 4 page paper discussing nurses’ burnout. Nurses’ burnout is a global problem which is considered more severe in developing countries due to the initial high patient nurse ratio and the increased number of health care workers which leave developing countries for other opportunities.

  • Overview of Nurse Mentors

    A 7 page paper discussing how mentoring and networking can enable nurses to achieve desired career paths.

  • Scientific Management Theories, Motivation, and Theories

    This is a 5 page paper discussing various aspects of management including scientific management theories, the Hawthorne Experiments and other areas including an example of a social structure found within a work setting. Over the course of history, work, mainly manufactured work, has been studied in terms of the various elements required needed for the production of an item and the time it would take workers to complete this task. In addition, with the introduction of certain industrial technologies over time, manufacturing and the management of manufacturing systems and teams have been altered to accommodate new trends and technologies. Management, within an historical perspective, had little to do direct contact within the employees which was generally left to the foremen. However, Frederick Winslow Taylor in the 19th century began to think in terms of “scientific management” in which production management became important to improving the overall production of any manufacturing area. While scientific management looked mainly to efficiency in production, the Hawthorne experiments in the 1920s found that work places are very much social systems and workers reacted accordingly. Lastly, employee motivation need to be established by owners and managers in order to initiate recruitment for firms and retain employees once recruited. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Anxiety Attacks and the Analysis of Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) considered the father of psychoanalysis believed that “anxiety neurosis” and anxiety attacks experienced by individuals resulted from individuals no longer being able to repress impulses which were in conflict or not satisfied during the childhood psychosexual developmental stages. Freud found that anxiety and panic attacks resembled greatly people’s reactions when they were confronted with danger except there would seem to be no danger present. Therefore, Freud would conclude, the danger must be internal and resulting from “failure of repression” in which an individual would be overwhelmed with panic or a phobia. Through psychoanalysis, Freud would attempt with the patient to discover the area of conflict from their past in which their needs were not nurtured or gratified or which had instilled a fear which they had repressed; a repression which could no longer be contained and resulting in anxiety attacks.
