  • Colonial Domination Independence of Latin America

    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.

  • Colonial Latin American Women

    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.

  • Culture, Demographics and Socioeconomics of the Black American Family

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

  • The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

    A 5 page essay that examines the principal theme of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, as it is suggested by the title. At the beginning of his novel The Sun Also Rises (1926), Ernest Hemingway includes an epigraph that consists of two quotations. The first is from Gertrude Stein, an avant-garde American poet who was the emotional center of the group of expatriate American writers living in Paris during the 1920s. This quote describes the generation that came of age during World War I as a "lost generation." The horror of the war had caused this group of young people to lose faith in traditional values, leaving them adrift, without a center, in the fluctuating current of modernism. But also included in the epigraph is a quote from the Bible, from Ecclesiastes, which states that the world endures and the sun continues to rise, which suggests that time and nature will eventually provide a new generation and new hope. Examination of this novel shows that both themes, hopelessness and the hope of rejuvenation, are integral to the structure of the text as a whole. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Aging Nursing Population/Healthcare

    A 7 page research paper that examines this issue. A predominant demographic trend in the U.S. is toward a progressively older population, as Americans live longer lives. Connie Barden, president of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN), points out that nurses are getting older along with the rest of the country (An interview, 2003). The aging nursing population has a tremendous impact on the current nursing shortage, as more and more nurses near retirement age. Furthermore, it is logical to presume that older nurses may find the stress caused by understaffing to be more problematic.

  • How Pre History Shaped America

    A 5 page paper discussing the ways in which the first to arrive in America between 20,000 and 30,000 years ago have served to shape today’s American civilization and national culture. The paper discusses the resolve that they certainly must have had in leaving everything known for everything unknown, then using in the new places only those things available to them in the new environment. Asian cultures are enigmatic in their reverence for their ancestors, and it remains a fact that Westerners often dismiss. Ancestry does direct the paths of the future, however. Our pre-history, Renaissance and colonial ancestry well serves the world’s only “mongrel” country, one made up of many ancestral strains, all of which have proven to represent magnificent stock. The paper also includes a discussion of American reaction to Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

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

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

  • Law and Race Perspectives as They Relate to American Skinheads

    10 pages in length. The closely shaved scalp and spouting white-supremacist beliefs are difficult to miss. Indeed, American skinheads have carved out a niche for their radical and very violent approach to what they deem as social and racial injustice, much the same way the Ku Klux Klan has achieved for its members throughout the twentieth century. As the world continues to spiral toward complete and utter eradication, there exists a select sector of the population that refuses to allow this to happen without at least a good fight. The writer discusses how American skinheads have long been at the forefront of controversy in their indignation toward racial intolerance. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Research Methods, Quantitative vs. Qualitative

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

  • 1920s' Sexual Revolution in America

    A 12 page contention that the 1920s did indeed spawn a sexual revolution. The industrialization which would overtake the U.S. in this time period would impact us in some very astounding ways.

    8 pages in length.

The writer discusses how Monroe effectively sought to protect the interests of every United States citizen, while at the same time flexing the country's blossoming authority.

  • The War in Iraq and Economic Ramifications

    A 4 page paper discussing the economic effects of the Iraqi war. War nearly always provides an economic boost, even if only temporarily. The war in Iraq lifted the American economy to an extent, but the benefits of the gains will not be lasting ones as the federal government seeks funds sufficient for rebuilding the country. The cost of reconstruction equates in the US to less opportunity for economic growth, for billions of dollars are being dedicated to Iraq to assist in its rebuilding from the most recent war. Though the beginning of the war increased American economic fortunes, that general effect is being negated by the staggering costs of reconstruction and conversion to a coalition government in Iraq. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Aging Nursing Population/Healthcare

    A 7 page research paper that examines this issue. A predominant demographic trend in the U.S. is toward a progressively older population, as Americans live longer lives.

  • Criminology Foundations

    This is a 3 page paper discussing the foundations of criminology in relation to contemporary developments.

While a crime is basically considered as the breaking of the criminal code, there are many other dimensions to crime which must be considered in order to understand its effect on society. The breaking of the criminal code is only the legal aspect of crime while normative, deviant, social, and basic right perspectives must also be included. Without these intensive studies in criminology, societal laws will not reflect the needs of society or the causes of ongoing criminal behavior. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Soap Operas And Language

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

  • Trio of Journal Articles Compared

    A 5 page comparison of psychological journal articles addressing extroversion and introversion.

All of the studies seem to be designed as well as they could be in their areas of investigation, but all seem to conclude that apart from neurosis of either introversion or extroversion, the existence and the description within the individual remains subjective and its definition elusive.

The extent to which tracking serves to detach students from new experiences and each other by placing them within the confines of regimented, uniform study is both grand and far-reaching; that such division not only cultivates but also perpetuates such social ills as class and racial status speaks to the impact administrators very obviously do not take into account with such a divisive program.

  • Overview of Nurse Mentors

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

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

    This is a 4 page paper discussing nurses’ burnout. Nurses’ burnout is a global problem which is considered more severe in developing countries due to the initial high patient nurse ratio and the increased number of health care workers which leave developing countries for other opportunities. While the Sultanate of Oman has a fairly large nursing population, over 70% of the nurses are foreign born leaving Oman even more vulnerable to the departure of a large portion of its nurses. The Ministry of Health within Oman has undergone several initiatives which will hopefully help to retain the current nursing population such as increasing the percentage of Omani and adopting international nursing standards, but in addition, the administrators responsible for the well being of nurses in Oman may wish to consult worldwide studies on nurses’ burnout which indicate that environmental factors such as resource availability, supervisor support, length of stay in high demand departments and overall “empowerment” within the workplace among many other factors are equally important in decreasing emotional exhaustion and stress which leads to burnout. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

The staff response was that of rebellion, and the 'new' head cook was discharged within his 90-day probationary period.

  • SWOT Analysis and Case Study of Video Concepts

    A 6 page 'SWOT' (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis of a small video store that was doing quite well until Blockbuster Video moved to town. Two years after the arrival of Blockbuster, Video Concepts was still profitable, though only marginally so. It has been said that if the giant retailers are steamships plowing through the ocean, then the small local retailers have to be the cigarette boats zipping around and through them, changing direction at any given time. Video Concepts cannot hope to compete with Blockbuster's financial resources or national name; they must become actively involved in the community, stress their local ownership in a small North Carolina town where such things are important, and operate more on creativity than cash.

  • Impact Of Video Game Violence On Children

    4 pages in length. The debate over whether video game violence serves as little more than a negative influence is a continuing argument between critics who contend such violence images and scenarios are precursors to real-life violent behavior and others who point to beneficial aspects of virtual hostility that helps enhance mental processes as well as prepare children for social encounters as adolescents and adults. That one side of the debate is more viable than the other is not so much the focus of this ongoing dispute as is the validity of studies whose findings provide conflicting data pertaining to just how detrimental video game violence truly is within the mind of an impressionable child.

  • Non Verbal Communications Learned or In Born?

    An 8 page look at non-verbal communications (i.e., gestures, motions, batting eyelashes, etc;) and the importance of realizing that different groups of people may interpret them in different ways. The primary focus of this particular report, however, is to analyze the controversy over whether most non-verbal communication activities are in-born traits or learned activities. Various issues and studies are explored to help answer this very question and arguments seem to lean strongly in favor of the 'in-born side' for certain non-verbal communications while some lean strongly in favor of the 'learned' side for other examples of non-verbal communication. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Keyboard Skills and Further Technology

    7 pages in length. There is little question that learning keyboarding skills at the third grade level does, indeed, help improve technological skills later on in school. Part of the challenge of acquiring a good, sound education is getting the student interested in the lesson plan; while some are inherently good students, others require the extra added incentive that computer access offers. However, the child's interaction with the computer is only as effective as his keyboarding skills, which, as studies have begun to note, are just as essential as is understanding the programs. The writer discusses how learning keyboarding in the third grade helps to improve technological skills later on in school. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

All of the patients are post-operative and so have the support of the controlled environment of the hospital during the worst period of withdrawal. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Article Review, Software Development Study

    A 3 page summary of a research article on software development. Research has suggested that user participation in the analysis stage of software development will be more significant to the overall success of software development than user participation in the design stage. Most of this research has focused only on project team members and not on operational users whose work will be impacted by the system being developed. Wu and Marakas designed a study that explored the “impact of operational end user participation in two important stages of the system development life cycle,” specifically, the analysis and design phrases of software development (Wu and Marakas, 2006, p. 127). No additional sources cited.

  • School Uniforms and Their Impact

    A 15 page paper. The debates and controversy about mandating students wear school uniforms have gone on for more than a decade. Proponents argue that school uniforms decrease violence, reduce crime, reduce the incidence of discipline and behavior problems and increase learning. Opponents argue that uniforms are a violation of student's right to express themselves and have no effect on discipline. Few empirical studies have been conducted to investigate this issue, instead, most of the evidence in support of uniforms is anecdotal but it is very compelling. This paper reports both anecdotal reports and empirical results regarding the impact of school uniforms. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Bone Density And Dieting: Consumers

    3 pages in length. Slick weight loss advertisements have people believing that a quick fix is better than a slow and steady success; far too few encourage regular exercise with speedy caloric reduction, which ultimately places the dieter at great risk for the loss of bone density. According to a study done in 2005 and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, people who seek weight loss by calorie reduction alone have been found to lose bone density as compared with those who ate a balanced diet and exercised away the weight. What this clearly illustrates is how the properties of calories go much further than creating energy and putting on the pounds; rather, they are instrumental in maintaining bone stability that helps to ward of osteoarthritis.

The initiation of boys into manhood is based in homosexual practices, and rituals require that boys shed their female qualities in order to progress as men.

  • Contemporary Studies of Formative Sexual Experiences

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

  • Constructing Knowledge and Feminist Theory

    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.

  • US Police Forces and Racial Integration

    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.

  • Sexual Conversion Psychotherapy and Ethics

    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”. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Harassment in the Workplace and Legal Issues

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the legal issues of harassment within the work environment.

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. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • History and Linguistics of the Jamaican Creole Language

    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. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Differential Treatment of Women Laborers in Canada

    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.

  • A Discussion of Caretakers of Our Common House by Carol Lakey Hess

    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. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Friedrich Nietzsche and Nihilism

    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. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

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 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.

  • Cultural And Gender Influences In Education And Organizations

    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.

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.

  • Cultural Influences Exerted by the Life and Art of Robert Frost

    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.

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.

  • Preschool Vision Screening Justification

    A 4 page paper containing the text of a 13-slide PowerPoint presentation. Vision screening is not currently practiced in public schools.

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.

  • Eating Pets: Research Proposal

    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. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Progress as Defined by American History from 1867 until 1909

    (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 attention.

  • History and Culture of the Cherokee

    An 8 page overview of the culture and history of this American Indian group.

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.

    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.

  • American History and the Place of Anne Hutchinson

    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.

  • Ronald Takaki's Reflections on A Different Mirror A History of Multicultural America

    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. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Independence Day/Film Review

    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. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Religious Attitudes Represented in Hollywood Films

    19 pages in length. 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. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

    This 5 page report discusses the ways in which German filmmaking has had an impact on American movies. Using the example of “M,” the 1931 thriller by Fritz Lang and starring Peter Lorre, it covers dangerous ground even by today's standards. The idea of a moody, dark, film noir combined with a psychological thriller was truly a radical concept in pre-war Hollywood. Lang’s use of lighting and sound all added to the menacing nature of the film and were soon imitated by Hollywood. The idea of telling a dark and frightening story of modern evil was also a radical concept, soon adopted by Hollywood. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Post 911 Laws

    A 10 page paper. Americans have enjoyed a degree of freedom few, if any, other countries enjoy.

  • Comparative Analysis of Latino Films Mi Vida Loca and West Side Story

    A 5 page research paper/essay that contrasts and compares the films "West Side Story" and "Mi Vida Loca." The writer argues that these films are part of the same continuum, a continuum that represents the way that Hollywood sees Latinos, which is a view that is not altogether accurate. Both films focus on barrio life and the gangs that characterize the life of so many Hispanic young people. They both picture this life as a violent and often brief, a struggle for survival. Each film presents itself as a realistic picture of this American subculture. However, while each film has much to recommend it, ultimately both films must be judged as perpetuating stereotypes regarding the Latino life that they attempt to portray.

  • Communication Barriers to Emergency Medical Services to Homeless, Transsexuals, and Prostitutes

    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. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Math Assessment, Authentic Assessment Programs, and Inconsistencies

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

  • Negative Recency and the Faulty Communications Perceptions Within the Work and Management Environments Study

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the perception of the recency effect within 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.

  • Scientific Management Theories, Motivation, and Theories

    This is a 5 page paper discussing various aspects of management including scientific management theories, the Hawthorne Experiments and other areas including an example of a social structure found within a work setting.

In addition, with the introduction of certain industrial technologies over time, manufacturing and the management of manufacturing systems and teams have been altered to accommodate new trends and technologies. Management, within an historical perspective, had little to do direct contact within the employees which was generally left to the foremen. However, Frederick Winslow Taylor in the 19th century began to think in terms of “scientific management” in which production management became important to improving the overall production of any manufacturing area. While scientific management looked mainly to efficiency in production, the Hawthorne experiments in the 1920s found that work places are very much social systems and workers reacted accordingly. Lastly, employee motivation need to be established by owners and managers in order to initiate recruitment for firms and retain employees once recruited. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Anxiety Attacks and the Analysis of Sigmund Freud

    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. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • The Holistic Dynamic Personality Theory of Abraham Maslow

    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.

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.

  • Patau's Syndrome: Trisomy 13

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

  • Cancer and Homes with Unacceptable Radon Gas Levels

    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.
