A 4 page paper discussing typical family relationships in 16th century Latin America, during the early colonial period. It uses as its beginning Cook and Cook’s “Good Faith and Truthful Ignorance: A Case of Transatlantic Bigamy.” Today’s Latin American families have many more options open to them, but the attitudes and perceptions of the colonial period persist in the form of tradition. Today’s Latin American families are not as bound to their families – either those of birth or those married into – in practice, but tradition remains as the ideal. Bibliography lists 1 source.

3 pages in length. Postcolonial Latin America yearned for the ability to break out from the oppressive constraints of the dictatorship that precluded its people's opportunity for freedom. It can be argued that autocratic rule was part and parcel of Latin America's existence all the way up to the point of its self-independence that was finally realized by those who had been held down for so long. Instrumental to the overall conquest of independence was the coupling of social realities and intellectual developments, as well as issues surrounding the economic and political stability of Spain and Portugal. While many of the motivating factors for freedom were the result of external forces, there were also some internal elements that helped to assist the eventual move toward Latin American independence. The writer discusses Latin America's self-independence. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
a 6 page research paper which examines the role of women in colonial Latin America. The colonial world of Latin America was intrinsically different from that of North America and this difference had a tremendous impact on the women of Latin America at that time. Although North America was rich in natural resources, the natives of North America did not have the gold of the Incas or the Aztecs. Consequently, the Europeans that came to North America's shores came to colonize-they brought women with them. Those early Europeans, specifically the Spanish, that came to Latin America did so solely for the purposes of exploitation, not for colonization. Because of this, the Spanish conquerors typically did not bring women with them from Europe. The writer argues that the native women in colonial Latin America were viewed by Europeans as simply one more resources that they could exploit. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

5 pages in length. Considered the master of magic realism, Gabriel Garcia Marquez sets the example for all others to follow. His work represents the very excellence that is magic realism in that it effectively captures the middle ground in a world that has its foundation in reality but escapes off into one of magical fantasy. A perfect example of this is with Garcia Marquez’s masterpiece entitled 'One Hundred Years of Solitude,' which causes one to posit the creation of such a magnificent work of literature. The writer discusses how this richly composed imaginary world is strikingly similar to ordinary existence yet it is also so drastically removed from it. In this world, reality and fantasy come together in such as way as to push away all limitations between the two entities, establishing one of the most peculiar and fantastic styles of Latin-American writing: magic realism.

5 pages in length. Historical literary accounts of Latin America's quest for freedom delve deeply into the social and cultural foundation of discrimination and oppression during the nation's formative years, effectively illustrating the extent to which the Americas suffered gross indignities at the hands of those who were in control, with primary emphasis upon the oppressive nature of European colonization. Andrea & Overfield's The Human Record : Sources of Global History and Bulliet et al's Earth and Its Peoples : A Global History Since 1750 are instrumental in illustrating the detrimental impact of colonization, as well as concentrating upon the significant quest for independence that Latin America ultimately realized as a nation. No additional sources cited.
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.

Sheehan's "The Arabs, Israelis, And Kissinger : A Secret History of American Diplomacy in the Middle East," one can readily surmise that while Kissinger may have lived up to his own political doctrine, the manner by which it was manifested included the elements of secrecy and deal making unbeknownst to the American people until agreements were well underway.

A 3 page film review that discusses how the 1983 film The Right Stuff portrays how Americans view technology. The film reports historical events accurately and creatively, but it also demonstrates, as did the book by Tom Wolfe, America's relationship with the concept of technology.

No additional sources cited.
A 7 page research paper that discusses the controversy surround the film The Passion of the Christ, produced and directed by Mel Gibson. This movie presents the last twelve hours of Jesus' life, that is, his suffering and crucifixion in a manner that demonizes Jewish authorities of the time. Particularly since all dialogue in the movie is spoken in either Latin or Aramaic (with English subtitles), the film has the "feel" of a documentary and it is likely that many viewers will regard it as an accurate dramatization of the gospel story of Christ's death. This paper compares Gibson's film to accounts of the crucifixion recorded in the Gospels. This comparison shows that Gibson added a great deal more violence than is actually portrayed in the Bible. The theological and racial implications of Gibson's film are then discussed in light of his personal history and background. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

A 6 page paper assessing one author’s view of racial and ethnic unfairness in the American system of criminal justice. Author and Georgetown law professor David Cole argues in his book, “No Equal Justice: Race and Class in the American Criminal Justice System,” that the inequality inherent in our legal system originates not with those who enforce and carry out the laws, but rather with the decisions that emanate from the Supreme Court. Cole’s system of criminal justice is fair in its methods after an individual enters into it; it is the method of entry that preserves its inherent unfairness. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

This is a 5 page paper discussing transcendental and liberation theologies in relation to Bernard Lonergan and Hans Urs von Balthasar. Transcendental and liberation theologies have recently been developed within the paradigms of the Catholic Church and both can be seen to be culturally and historically based. Traditional teachings in the Catholic Church tended to have “onesidedness” in which man was “allowed” to partake of God’s glory and God’s truth and goodness were seen as the purpose for following Him. In light of recent historical and cultural events, this onesidedness was becoming more and more difficult to understand because of the horrific treatment of individuals. Liberation theology was developed in Latin America and the ideas of sin and grace were understood more on a social level where God did not place individual sins and grace on those less fortunate but instead provided empathy. Transcendental theology was developed more as a study not on God’s effect on man but more so based on man’s development of religion working on an understanding of “man towards God” and not on the traditional “God towards man”.

This is a 5 page paper discussing the effects of exercise in middle aged women. The paper includes a short literature review and possible outline for a proposed study. Studies investigating the effects of exercise in middle aged women have been positive in their findings. Research has ranged from studying aerobic or non-aerobic exercise in regards to lipid concentrations as well as those which study weight training in regards to overall body fat and body weight among other factors. It would seem that in all cases, middle aged women have shown improvements in regards to overall health from exercise in addition to reducing their risk for heart disease by reducing lipid concentrations, cholesterol levels and blood pressure among other variables. While some studies involves thousands of subjects over many years, most studies involve a relatively small number of subjects, randomly assigned to controlled short-term exercise programs after which the results are compared from pre- and post-measurements.

This is a 3 page review of R.D. Lawrence’s “In Praise of Wolves”. Spanish born R.D. Lawrence lives on a 100-acre wilderness farm in Haliburton Highlands, 170 km north of Toronto, Ontario and has written over 29 books on nature and wildlife. In the spring of 1983, Lawrence and his wife traveled to Ishpeming in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan to study an untamed but captive pack of wild wolves and compared their behavior to those he had previously studied in the wild and with the two wolf cubs which he himself had raised. During the study and his use of other studies he has conducted on packs in the wild, Lawrence often contradicts other scientific theories in that he proposes that in many ways, wolves in the wild provide a much closer study and comparison to human behavior than do many studies on primates, considered humans’ closest natural relatives. In addition, Lawrence through the use of biological, sociological and psychological comparisons is not afraid to apply human terms to wolves in the text. Instead, Lawrence has found that in many ways, humans could learn from wolf behavior in terms of their handling of aggression (as opposed to the human emotion of anger) and stress in the wild.

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.
A 7 page research paper that takes the form of a study. This study consists of a literature review to ascertain the legitimacy of the Western perception that geishas are prostitutes. This examination of literature is based on the hypothesis that this prevalent Western assumption pertaining to geishas is false. While sexuality is undoubtedly a part of the lives of these women, this private part of their lives in not a part of their role as geisha. This study explores what does constitute the appeal of the geisha, the history of the profession and why the West has this fundamental misconception about the geisha’s art. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
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.

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.
A 6 page review of an article appearing in the December 2000 issue of Western Journal of Nursing Research.

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.

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.
A 17 page paper that presents a dissertation proposal. Schools have changed and so has the principalship.

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.

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.

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.

This is a 10 page paper discussing the history of public education in the United States. Since the 17th century, the Americans have been concerned with the support of public education in the United States. Many public schools which opened, the first reported in Boston in 1642, were still mainly for the education of those in the middle and upper classes as the lower classes were dependent upon the income brought in by their children. Through the support of advocates for the importance of public education, such Horace Mann and later, the Philadelphia Working Men’s Committee, the idea of public education funded by the state became more of a reality with stipulations which would allow for children to work and attend school at the same time. Many discriminatory aspects were still to be overcome however as the education of women, racial minorities and Catholics were highly restricted. Several innovators and centuries later, the development of public education was expanded to include women, African Americans and other minorities aided by laws of desegregation in the Fourteenth Amendment. Today, public education is still a controversial issue since the voucher system has been introduced to allow individuals to apply their public education taxes to tuition to private institutions which may provide more suitable and specific educational needs for those who do not wish to educate their children in the state and federal based curriculum. Regardless of the results of this latest controversial issue, public education will always remain an important part of the American society in their efforts to educate all Americans without fear of financial loss or discrimination.

A 5 page book review of C.K. Barrett's The New Testament Background: Selected Documents (1956). For the theology student, the study of New Testament scriptures also involves consideration of the wealth of collected wisdom and experience that is recorded in ancient literature, as these works describe the "history and thought of the world in which the Church was born" (Barrett xvii). Theology students hear constant references to this compendium of knowledge from their professors without usually encountering these works first hand, as most students never read these works themselves. Considering these facts, C.K. Barrett concluded that theology students need a guide to ancient world literature that aids them in regards to New Testament studies. Consequently, Barrett compiled such a text, which cites a variety of ancient documents that--collectively--offer a comprehensive picture for the modern student of the ancient world.

A 3 page research paper that discusses the American system. According to an online dictionary, www.businessdictionary.com, a "health care system" is defined as a "Complex of facilities, organizations, and trained personnel engaged in providing health care within a geographical area." If one considers only this extremely broad definition of a "health care system," then, yes, the manner in which health care is delivered in the U.S. is a "system." However, there are scholars who express an evaluation of the way that health care delivery functions in the US that is so negative that one can also easily make the argument that the delivery of health care in America is too dysfunctional to be considered to be a "system," as the term "system" implies organization and comprehensive service. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
An 8 page research paper that investigates the relationship between big sports and big money. Sports of any variety, high school, amateur, collegiate or professional, have obtained the cultural equivalent of religion among the majority of Americans. Presumably, athletic competition is about skill, endurance and the perseverance of the athlete. However, even a brief overview of sports shows that while these qualities are present in the background, sports today is all about the money. Sports economics are based on profit, which depends on winning and winning is frequently based on who has the most money. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
11 pages in length. With two-thirds of the American adult population overweight and just over thirty percent of them considered obese, there is no question as to the critical nature of weight management in the United States today. The influencing factors - which are mildly persuasive for some and wholly overwhelming for others – run the gamut from a thin-crazed culture to nutritionally-void fast food to an altogether uneducated society when it comes to eating a healthy diet. People have reached the point of being utterly confused and frustrated when it comes to making informed nutritional decisions, given the fact that they have been spoon-fed conflicting – albeit well-meaning – advice from myriad sources that keeps them in a perpetual state of obesity. Far too many people never gain the upper hand on their weight problem, with about 300,000 ultimately succumbing to the fatal aspects of unhealthy dietary habits and physical inactivity inherent to obesity. Bibliography lists 17 sources.
An 8 page research paper that discusses the nursing shortage and how it relates to a similar shortage of nursing educators. In order make-up for the tremendous nursing shortage that is evidence across the country, universities and colleges are offering a greater number of accelerated baccalaureate nursing programs, according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (Martin 5). Yet despite the increasing number of such programs, shortfalls in the number of nurses needed to fill vacancies still exist. Exacerbating the problem of the nursing shortage is the fact that is also a shortage of nursing faculty. Examination of this problem shows that the first, and perhaps the most crucial step, in solving the nursing shortage is to increase the number of number of nursing faculty members in order to break a negative cycle that is powering this national healthcare crisis. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
An 8 page research paper that examines the topic of male nursing. According to the American Nurses Association, the number of male student nurses has substantially increased, as male enrollment in nursing schools doubled between 1980 and 1992 (Hawke 56). Nevertheless, the problem typically encountered by males in a female-dominated profession continue to plague some male nurses and the overall number of male nurses in the profession remains low. Examining literature pertaining to men in nursing shows both the progress of male nurses in the profession, as well as what remains to be done in opening up nursing to all candidates, regardless of gender or ethnicity. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
A 5 page paper reviewing three position statements. The American Nurses Association has issued three documents designed to both define and direct nursing practice as it currently exists and as it is likely to continue to evolve. Together, these documents define the scope of nursing practice; the roles and responsibilities of nurse administrators; and clearly state nursing’s social policy. Taken together, these three documents define nursing practice as it exists today, as well as glimpses into nursing practice as it is likely to evolve in the future. Each of the documents is strong enough to stand alone, but taken together, they define current nursing practice well. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Bibliography lists 6 sources.
3 pages in length. The nursing shortage of late has exacerbated an already limited healthcare workforce; that extra hands are a significant help even though they might not be accompanied by a licensed practitioner has long been at the forefront of ethical and legal concerns. While the American Nursing Association recognizes the inherent value of unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) as being instrumental in providing nurses with much-needed support, the ANA also stresses the fundamental dangers of allowing UAPs to engage in functions – such as administering medications - that only a licensed nurse should be undertaking, a far too common reality that stands to erode the nursing profession.

A 4 page research paper that summarizes and discusses the nursing shortage in America. The current U.S. nursing shortage began in 1998 and resulted from a combination of social and economic factors, which included the “little growth in RN (registered nurse) wages, demographic changes in the RN workforce that decreased the supply of working RNs and a stressful hospital workplace environment” (Buerhaus, et al, 2007, p. 853). Currently, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services predicted that by 2010, there the nursing shortage will have reach the level of 29 percent, which translates to more than 800,000 nurses (Chandra and Willis, 2005). This examination of literature briefly summarizes this situation and the negative impact that it has on the American healthcare system. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
A 5 page research paper that discusses nursing retention rates. A consistent challenge for nurse managers today is to control staff nurse turnover rates, which average as high as 21 percent in some areas (Kleinman, 2004). According to the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), in 2002, the national average turnover rates for nurses working in the US was 21.3 percent (Kleinman, 2004). This high rate is not only costly to hospitals, but seriously impairs the quality of patient care that these institutions can offer. This examination of this problem does so within the context of a hypothetical case scenario. First of all, however, background information on this issue is presented in order to identity the parameters of this problem, provide analysis and present a rationale for its solution. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

A 7 page research paper that looks at this topic. There is an old saying that "You are what you eat," which refers, of course, that it is what we consume that provides the nutritional building blocks for the body. Considering the truth of this statement, a corollary would necessarily follow that what we eat, and therefore how the body and brain are constructed, necessarily affects the way we act. Researchers are, therefore, exploring the various ways in which nutrition impacts behavior. This body of data indicates that nutrition affects behavior in a profound manner. The writer particularly focuses on studies that examine the effect of nutrition on childhood development and behavior. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

10 pages in length. The correlation between child abuse and subsequent emotional trauma is well documented; that the abusive cycle remains with the child into adulthood illustrates the deep-seated impact such an invasion has upon the individual. Also studied to a certain degree is the risk factors involved with therapeutic treatment applied to address post-traumatic impact. By the same token, child abuse has a tendency to encourage the same behavior in those who suffer the mistreatment, inasmuch as learned influence carries over and ultimately compels the abused adult to use violence to solve problems in his family. Bibliography lists 15 sources.
A 5 page paper discussing the work of Filippo Brunelleschi, Andrea Palladio and Arnolfo di Cambio as being representative of Italian Renaissance architecture. A hallmark of the Renaissance was that it broke with the traditions of the Middle Ages in form and culture. Whereas the focus of the Middle Ages and the source of all knowledge had been in theology, the study of humanity was the focus of the Renaissance. Theological matters still were of great importance, but they were expressed in different terms. During the Renaissance, beauty came to be acceptable in its own right. Italian Renaissance architecture follows this progression of thought throughout the Renaissance period. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
6 pages in length. The process of learning is comprised of myriad components over and above the conventional book approach that - studies have found - has a tendency to alienate certain types of students. Clearly, the collective population of learners can no longer be lumped into a single category for reaching academic achievement given the proven fact that people absorb information in a number of different ways; as such, today's teaching methods are utilizing alternative tools by which to reach students on all levels of comprehension, not the least of which includes the surprisingly beneficial aspect of video games. Dubbed as the 'joystick generation,' contemporary high school and college students have come to academically expand from using video games as a learning tool. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

5 pages in length. There was a time when students had to rely upon the traditional - and archaic - educational methods of attending class, abiding by the pre-established schedules of instructors, following a curriculum upon which they had little time to focus, as well as rearranging their lives to accommodate their schooling. This is no longer the case with the advent of telecommunications technology in the classroom -- the classroom being the privacy of the student's own home. Indeed, it is impossible to overlook the many benefits inherent to such programs as distance learning, video conferencing, interactive multimedia, knowledge-based systems and the Internet as they relate to education. Contemporary students have been given an opportunity unlike any who have studied before them: the chance to mold their educational needs to fit their individual lifestyles. However, along with the good comes the not-so-good in terms of technological frustrations that impede upon their progress. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

The paper focuses on UK secondary schools (years 7 – 13), but would be applicable to other countries and other areas of education. The bibliography cites 34 sources.
A 5 page paper analyzing Neitzsche’s view of the study of history. Neitzsche indicates that there is value in being able to be “unhistorical,” that is, being able to forget portions of history that do nothing to add value to the present, but he also states that the “super-historical” is the preferred state. This is the perspective that calls on art and religion to inform conclusions about past events and their applicability to the present time. It is one that considers more than only one narrow view of any point or time in history. Bibliography lists 1 source.
A 6 page book review of A History of the Modern Middle East by William Cleveland (1994). This is a complex and scholarly work, designed to present Middle Eastern history to both students and general readers who have not previously studied this subject. The Middle East plays a prominent role in the daily news. In many cases, commentators and policymakers appear mystified by Middle Eastern attitudes and, particularly, by their stance towards the West and the US. Cleveland's history not only explains past events, but also places them within cultural and geographic context that aids the reader in seeing how the region evolved to its present state. No additional sources cited.
A 6 page review of Eye on the Future: Business People in Calgary and the Bow Valley, 1870-1900 by Henry C. Klassen (University of Calgary Press, 2002).

A 10 page research paper that addresses this topic. Canada is currently experiencing a huge influx of new immigrants. This factor not only affects the Canadian economy and work market, but also it impacts the health care system. The question arises, however, as to precisely what the impact on the health care system will be as this involves determining the needs of this demographic group. The framework for this literature review addresses this question specifically in regards to the topic of mental heath and incidence of depression among new immigrants to Canada. As immigration necessarily implies a period of transition, in which cultural and psychological adjustment is required, it seems logical that depression could be a serious problem among new immigrant groups. The following literature review explores what research has to say on this hypothesis and also what studies reveal about the factors that affect depression among new immigrants, as well as the prevalence of depression. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Conclusions are then drawn concerning the efficacy of these proposed treatments and/or programs and how the literature suggests that childhood obesity should be addressed in light of this data. The review concludes by discussing the implications of this research in regards to possible future studies that will add to this body of knowledge and contribute to the goal of effectively coping with this societal problem. Bibliography lists 19 sources.
A 9 page literature review that addresses the use of assistive devices by the elderly. There has been a major paradigm shift that has transferred the focus of society from "disability to ability and from professional power to patient empowerment" (Wressle and Samuelsson, 2004, p. 143). This necessarily influences the field of rehabilitation and occupational therapy, as assistive devices empower patients to keep control of their lives. This literature review explores whether empirical research studies support the concept that assistive devices contribute significantly to the goal of maintaining independence in old age. The writer concludes that it does. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

A 4 page essay that explicates 2 carpe diem poems. Carpe diem, a Latin phrase meaning “cease the day,” is a favorite theme found in seventeenth century poetry. Two of the most famous carpe diem poems from this era are Robert Herrick’s “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time” and Andrew Marvell’s “To His Coy Mistress.” An examination of these poems indicates that while Herrick makes effective use of imagery in order to argue his carpe diem seduction theme, Marvell’s poem is the most effective. No additional sources cited.

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.

In America, one person succumbs to the fatal aspects of the disease every three minutes; sixteen million Americans have been diagnosed, while another five point four million will continue on with their lives without knowing they have the disease. Leading to fatal kidney failure, adult blindness, nerve damage and limb amputations, diabetes is truly a silent killer. Additionally, heart attacks stokes occur two to four times more often in those with diabetes than in those without it. Those who have caught their disease in time can still count on dying an average of fifteen years earlier than what is otherwise expected. Infants who are born from mothers with diabetes are two to three times more likely to die than their disease-free counterparts. Ninety-eight billion dollars is spent every year in the United States in order to treat diabetes. Medicare, which foots a significant amount of that annual bill, pays out no less than one of every five dollars to support those with the disease. Bibliography lists 18 sources.
8 pages in length. Lorraine Code's 'What Can She Know?' is a celebration of gender, with particular emphasis upon issues of feminism and patriarchal control. Indeed, Code portrays the perpetuation of feminism; not only are her writings a solid reflection of her sentiments of a lacking Anglo-American epistemology but so is the manner in which she reflects the female reawakening. Code displays her craft well and does not hesitate to apply her talent as more of a social statement than one of mere entertainment. Thus is the case with her ongoing assertion that there was truly no separation of the sexes in reality, short of the obvious physical differences; rather, her perpetual argument clearly makes the point that the female gender -- no matter how seemingly fragile and delicate -- is indeed just as much an emotionally strong and self-reliant individual as her socially-accepted male counterpart. The writer discusses Code's book as it relates to feminism and patriarchy. No additional sources cited.
An 8 page paper. Is the phrase "ethical marketing" an oxymoron? Ethics in marketing have evolved over decades but it was not until the 1980s that an emphasis on ethics began to appear in the literature. The literature notes that from the 1940s until the 1980s, the rule of thumb in marketing was caveat emptor. It still is in many ways but there are more marketers trying to follow ethical practices in today's society. This paper provides examples of unethical practices, a brief overview of the evolution of ethics in marketing and discusses the American Marketing Association's Code of Ethics. Ethics are discussed in terms of marketing research, advertisements, pricing and availability, among other things. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

A 20 page research paper that offers a nursing concept analysis on aging. As the percentage of the American population that is over the age of 65 increases with each passing year, there is more and more attention being paid to geriatric health care needs; and, in keeping with this trend, successful aging is a concept that is also garnering more attention.

This concept analysis of aging endeavors to accomplish this purpose, as it describes how literature addresses the aging process and its implications. Bibliography lists 26 sources.

A 5 page review of the Cold War years. The author of this paper emphasizes that the intent of the Cold War was to stabilize world politics and to maintain peace. In reality, it could be contended that the real outcome of this political approach was anything but a peaceful and secure world order. Indeed, the Cold War itself was a kind of warfare. Even in recognition of the fact that no actual warfare between the two main players, the Soviet Union and the United States erupted during the Cold War years, it was a period of intense hostility. This hostility is no better imprinted on the American psyche than through literature and movies. Two books in particular have added to our understanding of the Cold War. These books, both by author Tom Clancy, are “The Hunt for Red October” and “Red Storm Rising”. Each offers significant insight to the tensions which existed between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War years. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

4 pages in length. Looking back at the social and political debacle of McCarthyism makes one consider just how far the "defenders of the faith" should be allowed to go to protect America's system of government? When one examines what, if any, limits should be placed upon the methods and actions taken against those who are perceived not to "believe as we do," it is important to consider the current state of foreign affairs and the extent to which America has been force to defend its very existence. McCarthyism represented a perceived threat to what it means to be an American; the devastating impact of recent terrorist activities against this country illustrates, by comparison, a decidedly more tangible threat that calls for drastic measures of protection.

In this 40 page paper the UK organic dairy sector is examined. The development of the sector may be seen as a response for both environmental and consumer concerns. This market was once one that was buoyant providing a premium for organic farmers. However, the supply has now exceeds the demand. The result is that farmers in this sector need to adapt and change in order to retain the market and develop it so that they can survive as organic farmers. The current situation is that of a crossroads, depending on how the market develops and the way the dairy farmers influence that development will determine the future of the organic dairy farming and its’ produce. This paper argues that the farmers need to change the culture of producing and marketing organic dairy produce, looking at ways of developing the value chain, to add value and increase the demand for the product overall as well as reducing the level that is satisfied by the import market. Beginning with consideration of the dairy market and organic dairy farming in the UK, the history of the development of milk marketing is outlined to show how the current culture of lack of marketing or value adding exercises has developed. The paper then looks at the different influences that may impact on this, how value may be added and the different actions that both farmers and retail can and are taking to stimulate demand for organic products and a whole and also for that demand to be satisfied locally.

A 9 page proposal for an experimental design to test the impacts of secondary smoke in the workplace utilizing a sample base of male non-smokers who do not live with a smoker. Relies on the utilization of salivary testing for cotinine, a metabolite of nicotine, to quantify the degree of smoking which an individual is exposed to in the workplace. 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.

9 pages in length. As a result of the changing demography of Latino students within California's school system, it has become apparent that other changes have also taken place due to this shift in population that adversely affect the academic needs of the Chicano/Latino population at the elementary, secondary and post secondary segments of the educational pipeline. Humanity has been enduring an ongoing battle for centuries: the strained relations among the races. Despite efforts to put the past behind, signs remain at nearly every juncture that there still exists a strong sense of racial dissension. While many Caucasians do not see the problem being as severe as it is represented, Latinos angrily reply that the lighter skinned race has not had to endure such prejudice and, therefore, cannot begin to identify with the situation. Caucasian Americans do not interpret racism as a big problem, therefore, they do not see a need for government intervention. Similarly other United States minorities believe they often receive unfair treatment, as well, because of their race. However, assimilation into the California school system presents yet another obstacle for the growing Latino population. The writer discusses issues of academic interference, as well as addresses potential solutions. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
This is an 8 page paper on the learning disability dyscalculia. Dyscalculia is a developmental mathematical learning disability which is often considered part of or the same as dyslexia, the developmental reading and writing disability. While dyslexia has been known to cause some dysfunction in the understanding of mathematical elements, dyscalculia is much more complex in that it also includes over fifty different distinct classes of mathematical disabilities which include elements of confusion of abstract and strategic thought, an inability to properly construct time, schedules, or visual representations of places and directions as well as a person’s inability to conduct many tasks necessary in the running of a household such as financial planning, balancing checkbooks and credit cards, and may also include instances of people being habitually late, lost or unable to locate objects among other factors. Researchers in special education feel that the disability of dyscalculia is not being addressed in the educational systems because largely Americans are more accepting of being mathematically deficient but find that being deficient in reading and writing is not socially acceptable.

This is a 3 page paper discussing the history of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. The women’s suffrage movement within the United States began in earnest in 1848. Reflecting the sentiments of women around the world, organizers of a national convention that year began the process to fight for the right to vote (suffrage) and enfranchisement (the end of slavery) for women. The suffrage movement had two organizations, the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) headed by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the American Women Suffrage Association (AWSA) organized by Lucy Stone and others. The two organizations merged in 1890 which was also the year which also saw women’s rights to vote gradually being accepted across many of the Western states. After a long struggle and witnessing the enfranchisement of women occurring in many other countries, the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution giving women the right to vote was finally passed in 1920.

This is a 7 page paper discussing the ethical arguments in relation to sexual conversion psychotherapy. It is unethical to attempt to modify sexual orientation through psychotherapy due to the fact that homosexuality is not a mental illness and using therapies designed for mental illness are not only detrimental for the client but are also misrepresenting homosexuality as a mental illness. Despite the fact that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has deemed sexual conversion therapies as unethical practice, many therapists still offer this “treatment” to clients based on their feelings that it is unethical to disregard patient wishes. However, since there is no scientific or historical treatments which have shown any success in sexual conversion therapy, psychotherapists who “treat” clients for their sexual preferences are not only unethical because they are providing therapy which they know is ineffective but they are also taking payment for failed therapy. Rather than support clients in their sexual preferences and offer counseling in regards to handling stresses and pressures from society, psychotherapists who attempt sexual conversion therapy leave their clients with lower self-esteem and self-identification issues than when they first came to the therapists because they perceive that they have failed “treatment”.

This is a 10 page paper discussing the legal issues of harassment within the work environment. Despite the well established legislative acts which exist in the United States and other countries which prohibit harassment within the work place, there are still many instances which still exist. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces Title VII of the Civil Rights Act which prohibits harassment based on race, color, sex, religion, or national origin. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits harassment based on age and the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits harassment based on a disability. In addition to the enforcement of these regulations in the work place, the EEOC also provides guidelines to employers as how to prevent and correct harassment by establishing written procedures, educating their managers and employees as to the policies and reporting procedures and immediate attention to any complaints registered among other measures. Despite these regulations and guidelines, corporations are still charged with many cases of harassment each year resulting in great monetary and reputation losses.

3 pages in length. The undeniable impact of television upon rising juvenile violence is felt in myriad forms, not the least of which is within the school setting. With children completely desensitized to death and injury due to constant exposure through television, it comes as no surprise that they take such influences and apply them to real-life situations to the point where guns and other weapons have become a great cause for concern on school grounds.

This is a 12 page paper discussing wage and labor differentials for women in Canada. Within Canada today, women in the labor force generally make 70 to 80 cents for every dollar men make. This “wage gap” has actually decreased greatly over the years but still has a long way to go for total equity in the work place despite positive legislation in the 1970s and 1980s. Historically, women within Canada have been “crowded” into certain female-dominated professions such as clerical positions, nursing, teaching, domestic work, social work and sales and services. While clerical work once was comparable with male blue-collar jobs in regards to pay, the increase in unionization in many blue-collar trades left most of the female-dominated positions as those which were lower paid. As women shifted away from clerical positions and proceeded to attain degrees in higher education, the wage gap began to decrease but then women encountered the “glass ceiling” in which women held a disproportionate number of positions in the lowest quartile in large corporations. Today, women still have lower average salaries than men despite the gain in higher education. One of the reasons found within studies by Statistics Canada and others is that women who choose to have and raise children lose experience during their absence; experience men continue to gain which in turn leads to more promotions. Another reason believed for the continue wage gap is discrimination which still exists within employers, co-workers and the general population somewhat who still categorize some professions as “female” (such as teaching) and some as “male” (such as the trades) and in essence this restricts female workers from opportunities within the blue collar and higher executive markets.

This is an 8 page paper discussing the Jamaican Creole language. The Jamaican Creole language, also known as Western Caribbean English, has been a unique language since the beginning of the 19th century although is it still only officially linguistically classified along with Creole and Pidgin languages as “language isolate, unclassified” with the International Linguistics Center in Dallas, Texas. Because of its unique elements which differentiate it from Standard English in the areas of linguistic phonology, morphology, semantics and pragmatics, linguists believe that it should not be considered a “dialect” but should be reclassified as a “nation-language”. Not only spoken in Jamaica, Jamaican Creole is also spoken in Columbia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama. Jamaican is also influencing cultures and societies around the globe as large communities of West Indians who reside in countries such as Canada and the United States not only bring their language to the culture but also elements of their music, mannerism and lifestyle which are being adopted by neighboring communities. The Jamaican language is considered an excellent example of the many languages which are participating in the “Latinization” of the English language and are important in the linguistic study of the evolution of language. Includes an outline.

This is a 6 page paper discussing Hess’ “Caretakers of Our Common House”. Carol Lakey Hess’ “Caretakers of Our Common House: Women’s Development in Communities of Faith” studies not only areas connected with faith, theology and women’s experience but also the various aspects in the difference of female socialization in regards to “caring and connection” and how this relates to theological interpretation. The idea of the practice of faith within communities relates to Hess’ argument that separation and connection is obtained through “hard dialogues and deep connections” in which girls and women care be nurtured to be caretakers of their “own house” (self) as well as the “common house” (the community of faith). Women, through conversational education and strong leadership in the religious community can overcome the generations of gender socialization which have largely led to men as powerful and women as servile, caring, and supportive which has resulted in women “losing themselves” to societal roles.

This 10 page paper discusses religious beliefs and cultural customs regarding death and dying among the African American population. First, it would be wrong to lump all African Americans together and assume they all share the same religious and cultural beliefs and use the same procedures when it comes to death and dying. That would be a gross stereotypical conclusion. There are a multitude of variables that influence any family's beliefs and customs. This essay reports the comments and discussions of a number of persons who belong to this racial community and/or who have studied the topics. There are some core beliefs that may be practiced by many of the black population, such as spirituality, the circle of life and the collective decision making process. These are explained and discussed. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
20 pages in length. Education is becoming an elusive entity for many students who are not equipped to learn the 'American' way. The underpinning of socioeconomic, gender, racial and cultural components often erects barriers that prevent certain populations from engaging in the learning process with their Caucasian counterparts. Indeed, the extent to which the academic process is skewed toward American teaching ideals is both grand and far-reaching; that such marginalizing aspects as language deficiency, gender construct, stereotype vulnerability and standardized testing serve to segregate some student populations from receiving an equal education speaks to the manner by which different backgrounds may cause students difficulty in fitting in with a particular classroom culture, often instigating negative influence upon the self-esteem, perceived abilities as well as how they approach their studies and career choices. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

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.

An 8 page paper discussing the true level of integration—that of attitude—within the nation's police forces. In large cities, the police force is more likely to be organized along racial lines rather than simply being 'blue.' Such is not the case in smaller towns, however, and the populations of all those towns add up. Small-town America appears to have a much more workable grasp on the issue of race, and the combined population is much greater than are the combined populations of the three or four largest of American cities where police-department racism is a greater issue. In sum, the collective police force of the nation taken as a whole can be said to be more 'blue' than any other color. Considering the racial generation gap of public opinion polls, we should be able to expect that blue hue to grow deeper and more discernible in coming years. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

A 3 page essay that discusses the life of Robert Frost in connection with his poetry. Three poems are briefly analyzed and the writer relates what has been learned by this assignment. One of twentieth century America's greatest poets, Robert Frost (1874-1963), wrote verse that was not initially popular with the American public. For the first several decades of his adult life, Frost worked at a variety of jobs, and his family existed on the edge of poverty. He did not obtain financial stability and success as a poet until he was forty years old (Baym, et al 1762). Frost was a conservative poet who adhered to traditional forms and continued to write in the twentieth century the "kind of traditional poetry that modernists thought could no longer be written" (Baym, et al 1762). Through his remarkable use of imagery and also through his use of rhythm, which mirrors that of colloquial speech, Frost's poems often draw on the natural world to express complex meanings and nuances of understanding concerning life's major issues. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

A 7 page paper discussing the effects of managed care on buyers, sellers, the community and the doctor-patient relationship. Nearly everyone decries the cost of health care and health insurance; millions of Americans are uninsured and their numbers are growing. A generation ago managed care appeared to be the cure that the industry needed, and for a time the managed care approach to cost containment worked well enough that by the 1990s it had managed to reduce the rate of increase in total costs. That trend did not continue, however, and as managed care sought to regain results of the past the situation only deteriorated in terms of relationships. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
A 4 page paper containing the text of a 13-slide PowerPoint presentation. Vision screening is not currently practiced in public schools. There is evidence that treatment of amblyopia becomes more difficult with age and that the most effective ages for treatment occur during preschool years. Clearly, it is not possible to treat something that has not been identified. Amblyopia leads to both near- and far-sightedness (myopia and hyperopia), which in turn can create a number of learning problems for children as they enter school. The presentation provides recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force urging vision screenings for children under the age of 5. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
10 pages in length. Nothing can be considered a definite wrong when it exists within the confines of a cultural or religious reality. Despite the fact that other cultures or religions do not condone the particular practice - sometimes even condemning it to barbaric behavior as in the case of cannibalism - this incongruity in lifestyle does not automatically make it wrong. Distasteful, loathsome or regrettable perhaps but not inherently wrong by the standards under which it exists. Such is the case with eating pets - typically defined as dogs and cats - and the uproar it creates in countries like the United States where such activity is considered abominable; for others like the Pilipino, consuming dog is as commonplace as it is for Americans to eat livestock. India, with its universal reverence toward cows, is repulsed by the thought of devouring such a sacred animal. In short, the reason it is acceptable to eat animals like cows and sheep in some countries yet consisted wrong to eat dogs or cats in others is because the same animal is not given the same value in all cultures or religions.

(5 pp) In the last portion of the nineteenth
century Americans progressed at an uneven gait.
In the West, men took giant steps across the
country as they explored and claimed land;
often walking over others such as the Native
Peoples in the process. These same men "brought
their" women with them through incredible
difficulties, but then saw no reason to give them
any political allowances. Children were "owned"
as much as women were. Racial differences,
although somewhat equal on paper made little
progress. In the East labor and management
systems, political patronage, and social reform
began to demand attention, and progressive

A 5 page paper discussing the development of the current US system of currency and legal tender. In Colonial days, the formal currency was that of Britain and was based on silver. The shortage of silver combined with the need to trade with the native Americans who preferred wampum resulted in wampum being the currency of choice for decades until a New Jersey factory became so efficient in its production that it became hyperinflated. The paper discusses the influences of greenbacks and the role filled by the 1848 California gold rush in directing the US away from bimetallism and toward a gold standard, which eventually was abandoned in the 1930s. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
An 8 page overview of the culture and history of this American Indian group. The author emphasizes that today the Cherokee, in many ways, are little different from mainstream While culture in the United States. They have, in fact, assimilated almost completely into that culture. At the time of contact with non-Natives, however, there were often substantial differences between Cherokee and White culture. These differences translated into rocky relationships between the Cherokee and the United States government, relationships which eventually resulted in the forced removal of most of the Cherokee from their homelands, the establishment of a government reservation for the people, and the separation of the nation into two distinctly different political units.

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.

5 pages in length. According to Avi Shlaim's "War and Peace in the Middle East: A Concise History," ignorance of human rights and a tendency toward political oppression were the consequences of the post-war settlement of 1918-1922, clearly reflecting the consequential elements of imperialism for American policy in the Middle East. At the turn of the twentieth century, the United States was on the verge of becoming one of the world's most important imperial powers. The combination of public pressure, foreign policy elite and agricultural/industrial capitalism clearly signaled a massive global change of significant proportions. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
A 10 page paper discussing the troublesome maverick of the religious community of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Anne Hutchinson (1591-1643) was outspoken and opinionated at a time when such attitudes were unseemly (if not outright scandalous) and when women were paid little more respect than were children. She was excommunicated from the church and banished from the colony, but she never relinquished her convictions or determination. Recognized early on as America’s first female preacher, it has been only in relatively recent years that she also has been recognized as a champion not only of women’s rights, but of human rights as well. Bibliography lists 10 sources in 19 footnotes.
A 10 page paper discussing concepts of the 19th century raised by the book by Ronald Takaki. Jews, Blacks, Irish Catholics, Hispanics, Orientals and Native Americans have all been marginalized in US history, and the paper concludes that materialism, rather than race or ethnicity, has been the determining factor in the ability of these groups to succeed despite the discrimination levied toward them. Takaki in many instances is shallow and fails to think through his pontifications, but there is no debate possible in his charge that all of these groups were ill-treated. 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.

A 5 page film review of Independence Day (1996, directed by Roland Emmerich), which is a film made in the tradition of the grade B science fiction thriller, which is an exemplary film genre that never deserved the derogatory term "grade B" when one considers the pathos, drama, and ability of these adventures to draw in the audience and offer them a glimpse of another reality. In the 1950s and early 60s, Americans watched visions of flying saucers flicker across movie screens in darkened theaters and contemplated the vulnerable position of humanity in a tremendously huge and unknown universe. If known scientific facts did not quite jab with the film's action, no one cared because this was not the point. The point was to become emotionally caught up in the defense of the Earth, which is a cathartic and highly enjoyable experience, and this is what Independence Day offers.

The coming of age in the motion picture industry would have its inventors turning in their graves; their wildest dreams could never conjure up what has come to reflect reality in today's religiously-saturated medium of entertainment. Indeed, times have changed since what began back in the late eighteen hundreds as a basis for documentaries; even – and sometimes in spite of – criticism to the contrary, Hollywood movies have been extremely successful in incorporating the concept of religion on both a conscious and subliminal level as a means by which to generate and maintain attitudes toward religion with far-reaching effects on American social and political life.

Many theories have been proposed to explain the cognitive development of the human mind and the distinctions between the stages of development as well as the types of processing and modes of perception. In recent years, a number of researchers have considered the distinction memory as a component of cognition, and have made distinct delineations between iconic and echoic (or auditory sensory) store and their relationship to precategorical and categorical stages in development. 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.

Nowhere is this more evident than when one studies the events of the 1980's in comparison to that of the contemporary oil market. There is virtually no way for such a vacillating industry to conform to forecaster predictions, as its inherent nature is to change with great regularity. Inasmuch as industry experts attempt to rein in some modicum of knowledgeable prediction, they have routinely been met with disappointment. The writer discusses how such was the case with the 1980 oil market, noting that the same has continued forward into the 1990's. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
A 10 page research paper exploring the history, government, economy, education, health, and nutritional status of Peru. Great improvements have been made in the country since 1990, however, due to the fact that nearly half the population live in poverty Peru is a long way from being a nation with equal access to its benefits. Politically, it is also a long way from being a democracy since its president appoints so many members of the governmental structure. Bibliography is included.

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.
A 6 page essay on the establishment of Israel. The writer states that the will of the nomadic Israelites was to settle in a rich valley and establish a settlement, and shows how the political cannot be separated from the religious in the story of Israelite settlement. To keep up their vision, they relied on prophets to guide them, but in the end, King David, a warrior, saw to the actualization of their dream, although they attribute his presence to the will of God. Biblical passages studied include passages from Samuel I and II. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
This 45 page paper explores the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, the prospective payment system instituted, and the effect on Medicare beneficiaries. Specifically, the writer offers a proposal for a study focusing on the increased costs for seniors as a result of the BBA and the PPS. An extensive literature review explains the changes in Medicare benefits as a result of the BBA, including the Medicare+Choice option now given to seniors. The PPS has had a dramatic impact on nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities. The caps placed on rehab services and the changes in federal Medicaid benefits have all combined to result in a greater proportion of out-of-pocket expenses for the Medicare beneficiary. Bibliography lists 22 sources.

A 7 page paper discussing information presented in Harvard Business School Case 9-595-102 (1995). CEO Phil Knight stated in 1990 that Nike's focus for the 1990s should be that of athletic shoes and clothing, later refining that focus to one of marketing, rather than production. By 1993, the company had opened tourist-attraction stores, founded a professional athlete career management business and entered into an alliance with a large Hollywood talent agency, all the while bemoaning that European managers could not comprehend the Nike "spirit and message." The company failed to understand that its arrogance toward consumers and focus on activities unrelated to marketing athletic shoes and clothing masked any "spirit and message" that may have existed. The paper recommends that Nike return to focusing on its core business. Bibliography lists 1 source.

A 6 page paper discussing the characteristics of some of the "100 best places to work" identified by Working Mother and Fortune. Organizations have always known that treating employees well is morally right, but too many have seen employee programs as too costly for them to supply. Studies such as the several conducted by Chubb Group yield empirical evidence that corporate performance improves when they provide employees with environments conducive to the ability to give their full attention to the job. Families carry the cost of some of these organizations' programs; other companies assume full costs with the view that program costs are less than the consequences of not having family-friendly programs in place.

From the beginning of time man has studied the stars, imagining pictures in the sky and relying on the fact that they will always be there to guide and direct. We all know the importance of the North Star in discerning direction. Trees have been used in the same way. Navigational tools in themselves, trees are known to have been read in order to help plot a course when maps were not an option. This interesting paper compares and contrasts astronomy and trees and the roles they play in the history of man. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
5 pages in length. The comedic stylings of Aristophanes, Plautus and Terence have long been studied as representing the most innovative work of the period. While Greek
Aristophanic and Plautus’ Roman comedies bear considerable resemblance to Terence’s approach, there exist minutely distinctive differences that serve to establish each writer as being unique. The writer discusses that when one considers the humorous texts of “Hecyra,” “Miles Gloriosus,” “Birds” and “Frogs,” it is relatively simple to ascertain these contrarieties and similarities as they are compared and contrasted against one another. No additional sources cited.
In 9 pages, the author discusses school violence. School children are becoming increasingly violent. They are waging a virtual war with teachers and other students, and many injuries and deaths have resulted from this catastrophe. Conversely, school violence and the ensuing discipline problems related to the violence are serious problem across not only this nation, but also across the world. In order to assess what should be done, different techniques from authorities on the subject should be studied and discussed, and a recommendation should be made for the problem of school violence.

5 pages in length. When sociologists speak about social construction of reality, it can readily be argued that their meaning is attributed to the aftermath of man’s action when associated with social conduct. The vast importance of this concept helps one to effectively determine what is to be expected in any given social situation, particularly when applying W.I. Thomas’ statement: "If men define a situation as real it is real in its consequences." In essence, Thomas is merely pointing out that reality is based solely upon the consequences of one’s actions, which are in turn what ultimately shape one’s reality. The writer discusses how the significance of such philosophy greatly lends itself to the study of human and social behavior, in that without prior understanding of how reality is perceived, there would be little if any ability to comprehend one’s existence at all.

Even from the beginning, when the company was in its infancy, the owners demonstrated an inherent ability to overcome whatever marketing boundaries stood in their way to effectively conquered their share -- and more -- of the foam industry. Indeed, there was an ever-growing demand for such specialized products that Scottish Foam Limited initially provided, ultimately expanding into areas even the original owners never anticipated becoming involved with. The writer discusses that although their initial aim was to supply the packing industry with the highest quality product, it was not all too long before the company was reassessing its primary objectives.

This 17 page paper considers the problematic area of the cost an provision of the welfare system by various countries. To give a greater understanding the pensions system is examined as an example of the most sweeping of welfare schemes. The universal problems of an increase in the ageing population and life spans in conjunction with the falling birth rate is considered. A possible solution is then discussed; the privatisation of the welfare system, Chile is used as a model to illustrate this idea. The advantages and disadvantages are discussed and the suitability of the model for adoption by other countries is examined. The writer of this paper holds profession qualifications in the study of pensions. The bibliography cites 15 sources.

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.

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. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Both research articles -  Davidson et al's (2006) "Adolescent Body Image and Psychosocial Functioning" and  McCabe et al's (2003) "Sociocultural Influences on Body Image and Body Changes Among Adolescent Boys and Girls" from The Journal of Social Psychology focus their respective studies upon how body image impacts the manner by which teens perceive themselves and how they believe they are perceived by their others in their age group. Each article submitted questionnaires to a random sampling of the target adolescent group in order to generate response to the following hypotheses:  To what extent poor body image influences peer interaction with adolescent boys and girls, and  the extent to which sociocultural influences forecast how/why adolescent boys and girls alter their bodies (i.e. lose weight) in order to be accepted. No additional sources cited.
This is an 11 page paper discussing Nietzsche and the concept of nihilism within his work. German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) is probably best known for his works on nihilism; the belief that all values, truths and morals which have been constructed by man are baseless including those within the Bible. Nietzsche did not originally begin his work in the area in nihilism but throughout his own study and questioning of the theories of truth found in theology, the classics and philosophy which had always been readily accepted for centuries, he concluded that the eventual course of man would be that of nihilism. As man demands more answers through the field of science, many of the traditional theories and religious beliefs will be stripped away. At the same time, humans will begin to realize that they cannot meet the ideals of the invented truth and will not be able to transcend into that “higher world”. Despair follows and man must return to nature and a time of humanity where the invented concepts of “good” versus “evil” are no longer relevant. Beliefs are then based on the singular concepts of each person living each day. However, these ideas are contrary to societal beliefs and the basic structure of society and therefore society as we know it will be destroyed.

A 48 page paper presenting a comprehensive overview of human trafficking, particularly of women for the purpose of sexual exploitation. The introduction provides a general overview and insight into the extent of this crime. Human trafficking is reported to be the third most profitable illegal business in the world. The second section of the paper offers a feminist perspective on trafficking of women and girls into prostitution. Data include numbers from many different regions in the world. Estimates run as high as 2 million women and girls trafficked every year. Data support the premise that human trafficking is a gendered business, a backlash against feminism, according to one well-known author. The impact of globalization on sex trafficking is then explored. Countries are categorized as origin points, transition points or destination points. The classifications of numerous countries are reported, some of which fit into all three categories. International and national laws and agreements regarding human trafficking and particularly sex trafficking are reported in the next section. Two case studies are then reported: Ukraine and the Philippines. A summary and conclusions end the essay. Bibliography lists 50 sources.
This is a 6 page paper with added tutorial language discussing the emergency medical services communication barriers which exist in the special populations of prostitutes, transsexuals and homeless populations. Although various emergency and health care services are offered in Toronto and the province of Ontario, the populations of homeless people, prostitutes and transsexuals are reluctant to use these services. All three of these populations have reported harassment, and “treat ‘em and street ‘em” minimal services from emergency health care services. This adds to the reluctance to contact these services in addition to the fear of contacting official agencies because of the legal implications. Incidence of drug and alcohol abuse and underage prostitution in addition to the high degree of violence associated with prostitution lead to an obvious initial degree of reluctance to contact authorities in regards to emergency assistance. Unfortunately, these populations have a higher need of emergency services than most due to the increase risk of substance abuse, exposure to disease and in the case of transsexuals, complications due to the administration of hormones. Despite the findings from most studies, initial examination of services offered in homeless shelters in the Toronto area show that these first contact agencies do not include access to emergency and health care services. In order to improve communication to these populations first contact should perhaps be instigated through these initial services.

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).

6 pages. The BMW M3 has been the subject of many articles and consumer report studies recently. Rating cars is not only just an annual task for automotive journalists but it is also a subject which auto enthusiasts look forward to eagerly each season. Did their favorite car make it to the top? What did the critics have to say about it? And do these opinions agree with those who actually own these cars? This paper focuses on the BMW M3 in the sports car class. For those who own the BMW M3 it is likely they will claim that hands down it is the best sports car they have ever driven. Although not all of the auto magazines rated the BMW M3 as number one, most owners will disagree. The BMW M3 has everything a driver wants in a sporty car. By looking at several magazine articles and talking to drivers of these well-made and handsome cars, it is easy to conduct our own survey. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
This is a 10 page paper discussing the perception of the recency effect within the work environment. Recency in which the most recent information received by an individual seems to be given the most weight in decision making has a great deal of importance in the field of management and the work environment. Managers within the business environment are used to dealing with recency plans within a business sense in that recency in business is a measurement of customers who have purchased merchandise “recently” or within an advertising perspective it is the psychological effect in which customers remember the “most recent” merchandizing when purchasing products. Despite management knowing about business recency, few if any are aware of the psychological recency effect within their own decision making process and the perceptual errors which can be made. In fact, the recency effect within the work environment can lead to poor judgment, poor or inconsistent management and poor communication skills throughout administration.

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.

This is a 4 page paper discussing how Freud would analyze anxiety attacks. Anxiety attacks, panic attacks and anxiety disorders in general have been studied in medicine and psychology for over a century. 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.

This is a 9 page paper including abstract that discusses Maslow’s holistic-dynamic theory of personality. Personality has been studied in regards to various psychological approaches including psychoanalytical theories, learning theories, dispositional theories and humanistic psychology theories among others. Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) developed theories of personality from a humanistic psychological standpoint. His holistic-dynamic theory of personality advocates that individuals require the fulfillment of certain fundamental needs in order to develop their personality and use their intelligence efficiently, acquire higher functioning and problem solving proficiently. Basic needs consisted of safety, love and respect. A more complex hierarchy of needs addressed the more comprehensive concepts of belongingness, esteem, self-esteem and self-actualization among others. Without the gratification of having these fundamental needs met, individuals will suffer frustration and eventually psychological “sickness”. Within the work environment, individuals experience boredom, lack of energy, low self-esteem and personal and professional problems seems insurmountable.

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.

From anti-Semitism to homophobia to Holocaust denial, the ADL's ongoing mission is to fortify the presence of these groups by infusing the younger, more impressionable members of society with a healthy dose of tolerance education. Similar to the ADL, the ADC's mission is to undo centuries' worth of bias toward people of all faiths, races and backgrounds; however, the grassroots civil rights organization's primary focus is upon Arab heritage in the United States.

This is a 3 page paper discussing Gram-positive bacteria. In the study of microbiology, common Gram-positive bacteria cells are Straphlyococcus aureus or Streptococcus cremoris often used in dairy production. Gram-positive bacteria are considered distinct in their multiple layered cell walls almost made up entirely of peptidoglycan. Gram-positive bacteria have four associated families which include Bacillaceae, Micrococcaceae, Mycobacteriaceae, and Peptococcaceae all of which vary in their growth rates, motility, and the media on which they grow. In addition, some Gram-positive bacteria have the ability to produce specific biochemical activities and/or specific toxins. Because of this, Gram-positive bacteria are sometimes used for fermentation, the reduction of nitrate or the production of coagulase or catalase among other uses.

This is a 7 page paper discussing indoor radon exposure as a leading cause of lung cancer. In the U.S., it is estimated that 1 out of every 15 homes has an “unacceptable” level of radon gas (higher than 4 pCi/l). Within the last 15 years, radon has been found to be the second leading cause of lung cancer within the U.S. claiming over 14,000 deaths each year. While studies are still being conducting in several countries and populations, it seems that radon is linked primarily with causing lung cancer and has not been linked with any other types of cancer at this point. This is primarily due to the fact that alpha radiation released by the radon progeny atoms which adhere to the lungs has little capacity to travel distances and therefore concentrates its damage to the lungs. While certain aspects of reducing radon exposure are still being debated, such as what can be considered “safe” levels, most scientists and state and federal health agencies agree that there is little doubt that radon is one of the leading causes of lung cancer and humans receive their radon exposure from indoor environments such as homes, school and work environments where the radon levels are considerably higher than outdoors.

(5pp) Common Ground: covering a great deal more
than its subtitle suggests, is a huge non-fiction
study of Boston in the 1970's, when it was under
the pressure of court-ordered busing to achieve
school desegregation. The three families J. Anthony
Lukas focuses on include only a handful of the
hundreds of people in a multilayered account of the
moral fabric of a city and the vastly different
social universes of its neighborhoods. Eventually
the turmoil surrounding the desegregation efforts
is seen in the context of history, not just
national history, or that of Boston, but the
history of the little villages cities are made up
of, and in many cases even the histories of
Client Centered Nursing Home Care. (12 pp). On any
given day, nursing homes are caring for about one
in twenty Americans over the age of 65. Almost half
of all Americans turning 65 this year will be
admitted into a nursing home at least once. One
fifth of those people admitted into nursing homes
stay at least one year-one tenth stay three years
or more. It is projected that in 2020, 40 percent
of Americans will die in nursing homes. This
paper examines what is necessary for
client-centered care programs in nursing homes.

3 pages in length. The American mindset toward mental illness, mental retardation and addiction has historically been an attitude of disdain and weakness; those who suffered from these conditions have long been considered undesirable fringe of society and best kept at arm's length. In short, Americans want something done about such individuals so they are dealt with and kept out of mainstream society, however, they do not necessarily want to be the ones handed the responsibility. This is a perplexing reaction in today's world given the propensity of mental health problems that exist - both diagnosed and undetected - in what is often heralded as the world's most prosperous and progressive of societies. A significant reason for this mindset is because Americans are vastly undereducated about mental illness, mental retardation and addiction, and too often draw erroneous conclusions about the social value of these struggling individuals.

A 20 page paper research proposal seeking to discover ways to increase job longevity among bank tellers. The teller line employees are the first employees customers meet and also interact with during their banking relationship, qualifying tellers as the “front line” employees about whom so much has been written. Front line employees are those with whom customers have the greatest degree of direct contact and in many respects, they define the organization for the customer. Continuity and longevity in that position provide a pleasant experience for customers and retention of the customer base. The problem is that employees see that position as a stepping stone, a temporary stop on individuals’ career paths. This study will examine the reasons why employees view the teller positions as stepping stones and will investigate what would provide the incentive for employees to look at tellering as a long term career. This study will address financial institutions with $50M or less in assets or fewer than 25 employees. Bibliography lists 21 sources.
