  • Commonwealth Caribbean Jurisprudence, Natural Justice, and Fairness

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the concept of fairness and natural justice in regards to the jurisprudence of the Commonwealth Caribbean. The concept of fairness adds to the law of natural justice especially in its application of the jurisprudence of the Commonwealth Caribbean. The Commonwealth Caribbean, comprised of over 15 island and mainland nations in the Caribbean, has a system of law based primarily on that of the United Kingdom and on each nation’s colonial history. Some nations have components of the colonial Dutch and French systems as well because of historical ties. Regardless of the nation however, the Commonwealth Caribbean was considered one of the areas of the world in which basic laws of human rights, natural justice and natural law, were not being followed in regards to fairness, justice and equality within the judicial system. Prisoners unable to afford representation were not always provided with legal aid and were therefore not offered fair trials, decisions or appeals. With an international push for fairness in judicial systems, organizations were formed providing representation for criminals in the Commonwealth Caribbean in the mid-1990s and more recently constitutional amendments have been included providing for legal aid representation in all cases. Several amendments have been enforced within the judicial system as well to follow constitutional law to provide fair and just representation in regards to decisions pertaining to court justices and despite the power of the Chief Justice within the judicial system, he must also follow the concept of fairness in his application of justice within the judicial system itself.

  • Cinematic Examples of the Model of Due Process and the Roles Played by Community and the Law

    This is a 6 page paper discussing the concepts of the role of law in a community and the due process model as found in examples in film. Tutorial language appears in square brackets throughout the text to assist in the writing process. Several factors which are relevant to the law and crime are often well depicted within the cinema. In many cases within films which center on a community’s involvement in a local legal trial evidence can be found as to the understanding of the role of law within a community and within society. Basically, the law is meant to reflect society’s attitudes and values. While mostly, this role of law is beneficial to individuals within those communities as found in the films “Brother’s Keeper” and “Erin Brockovich”, in the case of conflicting communities within the same area, often one community can override the needs of another as seen in “To Kill a Mockingbird”. Other elements which are revealed within films dealing with legal cases are those which explore the criminal models of crime control and due process. Historically, due process may be difficult to find or non-existent such as in Henry VIII’s treatment of Sir Thomas More in “A Man for All Seasons” or the idea of completing the trials with expediency in “Judgment at Nuremberg”. More recent films, however, such as “The Verdict” try to show the benefits of due process within the legal system. Bibliography lists 11 sources

  • Criminology Foundations

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

  • The Importance of Forensic Psychology

    5 pages in length. The field of psychology is comprised of many subcategories in order to address various and distinct aspects in a more appropriate way. Forensic psychology is somewhat different from other sectors of the field by virtue of its intrinsic connection to the criminal justice system, an alliance that provides for better understanding of "the vast psychological perspectives" (Diviny et al, 2000) inherent to the law. More than that, however, is the fact that forensic psychology deals in myriad aspects of the legal component, not the least of which include helping to set policy and create laws, determining offender competency, establishing a defendant's mental condition at the time when the crime was committed, criminal profiling, attorney consultation for jury selection, treating mentally unstable offenders, acting as expert witness in court and "analyzing a criminal's mind and intent" (Diviny et al, 2000).

  • The Netherlands and the Law's Role in the Development of Social Attitudes Regarding Euthanasia and Gay Rights

    This is a 9 page paper discussing how the homosexual right laws and euthanasia laws in The Netherlands reflect society’s attitudes. Two basic perspectives are considered in regards to the role of the law in society. One is that the role of the law is to reflect society’s attitudes and throughout the process of social change through history, so too will the law reflect these changes. On the other hand, some governments or countries believe that the role of the law is to force or control social change. In the latter case, the law may or may not change through the process of social change. In today’s society, laws generally reflect society’s attitudes and social change as can be seen in the constantly changing, amending, updating and reversal of many of the laws which used to be enforced. These transitions in the law as a reflection of social change can be seen in some of the recent changes in laws pertaining to homosexual partnerships and euthanasia in The Netherlands. Changes in the law reflect societal attitudes to the extent where countries which have changed their laws to suit society’s changing attitudes are seen as more open and accepting of societal changes than those which do not. There are also some countries in which the law remains a controlling force for social change as seen in the one child policy in China. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

  • Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare and the Association Between Nature and Law

    This is a 5 page paper discussing the relationship between law and nature in Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure”. William Shakespeare’s play “Measure for Measure” examines the constantly shifting relationship between law and nature within the setting of Vienna. The law that no man must lay with a woman who is not his wife had long been established yet not enforced until Angelo the Lord Deputy decides to sentence Claudio, a young gentleman for impregnating his lover. Claudio shifts the relationships between nature and law, and natural law several times in his arguments to save his life. He sees man’s laws as flexible and man’s nature as virtuous. At the same time, Claudio views death and nature as lawless; which terrifies him. Angelo, on the other hand, has little sense of the natural lust and love which can occur in man and has little problem applying the law forbidding such encounters. After meeting Isabella however, Claudio’s virtuous sister, Angelo’s faith in the law alters as he readily breaks the law he is so willing to enforce on others. Isabella is virtuous and sees sinning as against natural law and devises ways in which she can save her virtue, condemn Angelo for his own lawlessness and sin while at the same time saving her brother.

  • 1820s' Appalachia Laws

    9 pages in length. The presence of law intends to create a more civilized society, one in which citizens can expect social enlightenment to guide their every action. While this may represent the concept of law, it only does so in theory due to the extraordinarily interpretive nature of judicial procedure, a reality that evaporates any semblance of equity to the notion of law. Applying this sentiment to Appalachian laws at the turn of the nineteenth century finds the separation of social classes to be one of the most incriminating elements of fair proceedings; inasmuch as the Celts and the English stood at odds over myriad societal issues, one of the most apparent was that of applying the law in whatever form necessary. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Effective Law Enforcement Tool Known as Foot Patrol

    5 pages in length. Enforcing the law is difficult enough without the added distraction of sidewalks, housing developments, industrial parks and just about every other impediment that makes patrol cars a less effective law enforcement tool. Utilizing foot patrol, on the other hand, provides for greater maneuverability through areas that a car simply cannot traverse, as well as keeps law enforcement visible for citizens and potential perpetrators alike to see. In contrast, foot patrol is not as effective as bicycle patrol, where law enforcement officers are trained to maneuver upon different types of bikes depending upon the terrain they will be covering. The agility and speed of bike patrol lends itself to crowded areas where cars are impractical and foot patrol is futile. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

    This is an 8 page paper discussing the medical and legal issues involved with a patient’s “right to die”. The “right to die” for a patient has long been considered an ethical issue and was not considered feasible until modern medicine and laws allowed for the possibility of patients to consider physician assisted suicide. Supporters of physician assisted suicide believe that patients have the right to make their own informed decisions about their medical treatment which may include physician assisted suicide if they are suffering and have a terminal illness. Opponents believe that to legally allow for physician assisted suicide begins the path down a slippery slope and in cases where comatose patients are considered does not protect the most vulnerable members of society when family members and physicians decide their fate where other factors not for the sake of the patient, such as financial concerns, are weighed against what is considered an acceptable level of life. Physician assisted suicide does exist however and in all cases, several issues must be addressed to respect the patient’s medical options, informed decision making, psychological well being, and in some cases the right to chose death over circumstance which should not be denied by the courts.

  • Bobby Joe Long

    3 pages in length. Bobby Joe Long may well have faded away into the chasm of undiscovered serial killers were it not for the blazing trail of evidence he inadvertently left behind the many scenes of his brutal crimes.

For Long, it was a long and intricate road that finally led the law to his door, a culmination that occurred only after ten women were viciously raped and murdered, and two hundred more lived to remember their ordeal. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Implications of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

    5 pages in length. One might readily argue how Maria is confusing sexual harassment with gender/racial discrimination, a distinction that may ultimately cost her the suit. Being that sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature – verbal, visual or physical - Maria may have great difficultly proving that any of this occurred during which time she was compelled to take on the role of menial servant. Situations can arise when a person is forced against her will to participate in an act of sexual harassment that threatens one's employment, no matter if it was done overtly or merely by inference, however, the circumstances upon which Maria's suit is filed are clearly not of a sexual nature as defined by law and may be construed as pushing the boundaries of current formulations of sexual harassment laws. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • The Computer In Criminalistics

    3 pages in length. Staying one step ahead of the criminal has long been the first line of defense for law enforcement officers; when intelligence is gathered that precludes the ability for the offender to actually commit the crime, it serves to establish a pattern by which subsequent foils can also be utilized. However, technology has created quite a significant challenge for law enforcement to maintain that critical step ahead of criminal activity by virtue of the wholly comprehensive nature of cyber crime. As such, the entire criminal justice field has come to incorporate the very instrument that has facilitated so many crimes as part of its arsenal for thwarting those offenses and ultimately catching the lawbreakers. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Anti-Drug Legislation On A Federal And State Level

    5 pages in length. America's massive efforts to quell the presence of illegal substances have proven historically ineffective; any beneficial outcome of the war on drugs has been dubious at best and an undeniable failure at worst. Despite attempts from both a state and federal perspective, it can readily be argued how the legislative tactics used for addressing the country's rampant drug problem has created more setbacks than any progress that can be attributed. Early federal laws like the 1914 Harrison Act and 1937 Marijuana Tax Act, while implemented for the explicit purpose of curbing drug use, were clearly not enforced due to a much more liberal social attitude about drug use. Shifting opinions, however, served to provide greater support for the 1970 Comprehensive Drug Abuse and Prevention and Control Act whereby previously weak legislation was combined and bolstered into a single, more powerful law that enabled drug offenders to be federally prosecuted. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Legal Implications Involving a Hypothetical Land Owner and Pollution Issues

  • Bolman and Deal's Theories as they relate to School Systems

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the primary management practices within the school system in the context of Bolman and Deal’s four organizational frames. Bolman and Deal’s text “Reframing Organizations” (2003) deals with the concepts of frames within the workplace which employs the “usable knowledge” available from a management perspective and also addresses the failures within organizations “due to lack of imagination”. Organizations are broken into the four conceptual “frames” of structural, human resources, political and symbolic which account for the various aspects of planning, staffing, organizing, directing and controlling within any organization. The management functions within school systems can also work within these frames as they include all of the same vital components which must be managed and maintained as within corporations. A study published by Souchet (2001) is used to show the management practices within the school system in regards to the role of a principal within a small urban setting in the Mid-Western United States. The school principal within the school setting is “also known as the middle manager and the site administrator” in organizational terms and is considered as the major managerial influence within the school as he or she must determine “whether the education is effective or ineffective, whether morale is high or low, whether the school climate is positive or negative; whether personnel are satisfied or dissatisfied; whether students achieve or don’t achieve; whether parents and the public are cooperative or uncooperative; and whether there is effective or ineffective management and leadership”.

It also discusses the findings that a person's social status determines their level of care. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • US Public Education

    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.

  • The History of Judaism in China

    This 10 page report discusses the history of the Jews in China. Approximately 1,000 years ago, of Jewish traders from the Middle East who settled in the Sung dynasty's imperial capital of Kaifeng along the Yellow River in east central China. They openly prayed in Hebrew, observed Jewish dietary laws, circumcised their newborn sons and built a synagogue facing Jerusalem in which to worship. They lived in peace for centuries, eventually establishing a Jewish society and culture that has been estimated to range in numbers between 5,000 to 9,000 people. In the 1930s and 1940’s, there were an estimated 30,000-40,000 Jews in China. Most of whom left after the end of World War II or during the Cultural Revolution. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Film Noir, Complexity And Gangsters

    3 pages in length. The intrigue of living outside the law serves as a basis upon which gangsters films harbor a certain complexity. A criminal element coupled with dark, seductive and intelligent antagonists whose sole purpose in life is to get something for nothing leads viewers on a nonstop chase whereby the gangster usually has the upper hand; it is rare for this social nonconformist to be outwitted as he exists within a covert infrastructure that allows for easy movement into and out of his targets. Classic films like High Sierra, White Heat and The Killers embody a significant change to the gangster/criminal film after 1940 with a distinctive move toward the mysterious complexity of film noir. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Professional Sports and Collective Bargaining

    This 15 page report discusses the various issues associated with collective bargaining in the professional sports world. Issues that have been of concern to Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, the National Football League, and the National Basketball Association and the players associated with each organization are discussed. Labor law and related regulatory constraints exist side by side in either the non-union of the union workplace. It is important to understand that basic federal labor policy favors, where appropriate, organized efforts at collective bargaining for terms and conditions of employment, regardless if the employer is a welder on an automobile production line or a power forward for a top NBA team. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

  • Disability and Recruitment Discrimination and Canadian Employment Law

  • Nursing Philosophy for Professional Practice

    A 7 page research paper that discusses a student-formulated professional philosophy of nursing practice, which is that making clinical judgment decisions in nursing care should be comfort based and founded on an understanding and knowledge of the patient’s continuous evolving physical and mental state. This examination of literature discusses how this philosophy can be applied to the four nursing domains of person, environment, health/illness and the nurse. Then, a broader perspective is given that takes into account the expectations of ANA standards of practice, the requirements of law and JCAHO standards. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • The Bible, Koran, And Divine Comedy

    A 5 page paper. Each work is discussed separately in terms of their contribution to modern society. The influence and impact of the Bible itself can be found across life from culture to law to literature and so on. The contribution of the Koran itself is more difficult to determine although many individual Muslims contributed significantly to areas like medicine, math and architecture. Dante's Divine Comedy greatly influenced several different areas of life. The writer comments on which book contributed the most and why. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

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

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

  • Euthanasia

    A 9 page research paper that examines the ethical issues associated with the issue of euthanasia, which are frequently addressed in contemporary society due to the fact that modern medical innovation has made it possible to prolong life in situations where, in previous eras, death would have been swift and inevitable. As this suggests, euthanasia debates are often associated with the discussions of the legality and morality of physician-assisted suicide. The following discussion of the ethics of euthanasia will consider both sides of this debate, pro and con, as well as how this issue can be regarded from various ethical perspectives, with a particular emphasis on Australian experience and law. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Issues Associated with Rape

    20 pages in length. The issues of gender, patriarchy and sexual violence are inextricably intertwined within the complexities of social existence. That women have always had to confirm their worth as human beings serves as a significant indicator to the overwhelming oppression thrust upon the female gender by means of physical and emotional abuse. Examining the extent to which women have been the recipients of such barbaric treatment at the hands of their male counterparts enables one to gain a better understanding of how the progression of sexual violence has perpetrated through the ages; only within the last few decades of the twentieth century have women been able to find any solace through crisis counseling, protective legislation and the enlightenment of law enforcement authorities. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

  • History of Judaism in China

  • Rome and Pax Romana

    (5 pp) " Civilized man from Scotland to Persia paid his taxes into the same treasury, was tried by the same law, was protected by the same armies, and enjoyed a profound and real peace-the PAX ROMANA- more than at any other time. This achievement was made possible on one hand by geography and on the other hand by able diplomacy, generalship, organization, government, and character." Those who had known Rome intimately were not so rational either in their praise or in the lament of her decline. We will look at some of those comments in this discussion. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • McDonald's and Obesity; A Case Study

    This 4 page paper looks at the problems faced by McDonald's and its’ association with unhealthy food and obesity. Answering questions set by the student paper discusses the problems of using a cartoon character to advertise to children, the potential of a law banning fast food advertising to children, whether or not advertising should be banned even if obesity rates in children are not falling in countries which have a ban in place and the problem is that the company has faced in the UK trying to overcome its unhealthy image. The paper ends with some commendations for a short-term and long-term strategy. The paper is based on a case study provided by the student

  • Nursing Home Management Interview Summary

    A 6 page paper discussing a meeting with nursing home management to discuss the development of an in-service educational program addressing the use of physical and chemical restraints. The facility received two state-level citations and seeks to heighten staff's awareness of both restraint use and state laws, but its primary purpose is to pursue continuous improvement in patient care. The meeting between a Master's student and the nursing home administrator, director of nursing and director of staff development results in plans for the student to develop and present a two-hour staff development program addressing the use of physical and chemical restraints. Bibliography lists 1 source.

  • Digital And Psychological Profiling Of Cyber Crime

    10 pages in length. Witnesses are often the single most important elements of securing a conviction or realizing an acquittal; without these observers to testify as to what they saw, heard or know, myriad court cases would either go unsolved or erroneously resolved. With the technological age, however, has come an entirely different type of witness who - by virtue of its unique position to collect incriminating data - does not have the capacity to lie. Computers have become some of the most critical tools law enforcement agencies have encountered, inasmuch as they provide a clear-cut path to criminals who use them as cyber weapons. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • State Statutes and Civil Monetary Penalties

    A 3 page paper discussing the Office of Inspector General (OIG)'s apparent reversal of itself in gainsharing arrangements between hospitals and physicians that strive to hold the line on spiraling health care costs. The paper demonstrates that OIG has not been inconsistent, that its initial rulings addressed treatment of individuals and that its subsequent agreement addressed treatment of entire groups of patients. The paper discusses Florida statute 456.053 in the same light. This law prevents physicians from referring patients to other physicians with whom the original could have a monetary link. Thus one doctor in a large practice cannot refer a patient to another in the same practice. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Overview of Information Security Management

    A 10 page paper. In today's electronic world securing information is difficult and complex. There are so many ways in which security can be breached. This essay discusses why it is important for information managers to understand the many ways information can be compromised. The essay provides some specific examples and how to prevent these types of incidents. The writer also discusses the laws that are in place regarding computer abuse. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Literature Review of Probation and Policing Fields Discriminating Against Women

    20 pages in length. The female gender is no stranger among the various ranks of America's police force, inasmuch as their presence has been an integral component of law enforcement since 1913; however, the capacity in which they have served these past ninety years has long been a bone of contention with regard to issues of gender inequity. House (1993) notes how it was not until the 1970s that women were upgraded to more expansive roles within the department, representing a significant departure from the standard social and administrative work to which they were relegated. With the 1972 graduation of the nation's first female FBI agents came an altogether different perspective of women on the police force; however, House (1993) points out that even though this precedence-setting event helped to increase the number of policewomen from just over three thousand to approximately twenty-eight hundred between 1971 and 1990, it has done little to improve promotions or decrease discrimination worldwide. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Workplace Sexual Harassment Court Decision Process

    A 6 page paper which examines the real-life Meritor v. Vinson sexual harassment case to cast a hypothetical deciding Supreme Court vote to determine who should win; whether harassment can occur if sex was consensual; the responsibility of employers and whether or not they should be liable for episodes for which they have not been notified; discusses if Ms. Vinson was using sex to get ahead, should her supervisor be convicted or be considered the victim; and evaluates the ethical issues from absolutist, relativist, utilitarian and rationalist viewpoints, then concludes with decision and recommended ethical perspective. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Articles 28 through 30 and the European Union's Free Movement of Goods Law

    This 4 page paper looks at different scenarios where one member state has restrictions on goods which may or may not be seen as restrictive. The paper considers a company tat wants to export chocolate with a sugar content over that allowed by the importing country, the requirements for specific packaging of another country, issue such as morality applied to chocolate made in erotic shapes, and a ban on advertising in children’s comics and magazines in another state. The paper is written concisely and cites numerous cases to illustrate points raised. The bibliography cites 5 sources.

  • Triage and its Medical and Military History

    This is a 5 page paper discussing the history of triage in medicine and its use in the military and civilian health care. Triage, a medical term to mean a sorting or classification of patients based on their levels of medical urgency was first developed as a military term and used in wartime. The French used “triage” to decide who would be taken from the battlefields to be treated and who would be left behind. Soon afterward, from World War II until present day, triage was not only used in Army field hospitals but is also now used in emergency departments to classify the large number of patients who enter each day. Nurses have been involved in the triage process from the beginning and recently the nursing associations have broadened the original three level triage classifications of emergent, urgent and non-urgent, to one of a four level priority system in the United States and one of five level priorities in Australia, Canada and Great Britain. Regardless of the number of levels, triage has become an important and efficient system to evaluate a patient’s urgency as well as analyze the effectiveness of the health care given in emergency departments. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Scientific Management Theories, Motivation, and Theories

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

  • 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). Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Political Power, Supernatural Rituals and Anthropology

    This is a 4 page paper discussing supernatural rituals and political power, misunderstanding and civilization, and individualism within American culture. Three central ideas within modern day anthropology are discussed, namely: the political functions of supernatural rituals; the misunderstanding of civilization; and, the core values of American culture in relation to the unequal distribution of wealth and the public education system. Supernatural rituals have a political function which can be twofold: those who are influential within the religious structure in society carry that power beyond the ritual itself; and, politically, those who wish the support of a large population within society can align themselves with a religious group. Misunderstanding and illusions for truth are part of the realizations of a young daughter in Barbara Kingsolver’s novel “The Poisonwood Bible” but these ideas are applied to anyone’s idea of his or her own civilization which becomes wholly dependent and built on one society but is inapplicable to another. Finally, the idea of “individualism” within the United States has become so profound that those who are wealthy within the U.S. (including the government itself) have done little for those who are less fortunate. This is well reflected in the high poverty rates in the country and the public school system which is unable to meet the basic needs of its citizens. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Fundamental Theories/Nursing Faculty Shortage

    A 15 page research paper that looks at the nursing faculty shortage and relates this to a literature review which examines scholarly sources that pertain to fundamental theories that affect nursing leadership. While responsible leadership is necessary to the success of any industry, Spinelli stipulates that "Leadership in the healthcare environment today is essential and mandated if our healthcare system is to survive" (Spinelli, 2006, p. 11). The writer examines macroeconomic theory (supply and demand), transformational leadership, servant leadership, situational leadership and role theory. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress

    This 6 page paper is a memo put together from material supplied by the student concerning a fictitious case where there is a potential claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress. The memo outlines the facts, considers the relevant legislation and cases including Christensen v. Superior Court (1991) and Saari v. Jongordon Corp. (1992).

  • Humanistic And Psychodynamic Psychology: Comparative Analysis

    11 pages in length. The fundamental composition of psychology encompasses such a vast array of components to address a specific situation that it is sometimes necessary to borrow from more than one application in order to realize holistic healing. At the same time, however, there are systems that already incorporate holism as a way in which to delve deeply within the human mind and fully achieve the desired objective, with humanistic and psychodynamic therapies occupying the top of the list. While Freud and Jung are directly related to the concept of psychodynamic psychology, Rogerian and Gestalt therapies represent two of the approaches most associated with humanistic psychology. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • New England and English Puritans

    This is a 5 page paper discussing the Puritans in England and New England. The Puritans were originally known as non-conformists to the Church of England (or the Anglican Church in America) in that they stripped away much of the administrative hierarchy, “popery”, religious symbols and icons to the basic belief that only God could make religious ministers and that the Bible was the “Lord’s revealed word”. Because much of their religion was based on the interpretation and understanding of the Bible, Puritan leaders were well educated scholars and also promoted education in their communities. While many Puritans came over from England in the early 1600s with the Pilgrims, more joined the new communities when the Act of Uniformity was passed in England in 1662 which dismissed and punished any ministers not conforming to the guidelines of the Church of England and using the Book of Common Prayer. Once in New England the Puritans began to established authoritarian communities under their leaders and also established many of the educational school systems still in existence today. Bibliography lists 2 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. One of these ways was the advent of the sexual revolution, a revolution in which the mores and social behavior of the newly-named “flapper” would usurp those of the traditional American housewife. The flapper would come to epitomize the liberation of American women from the rigidly-defined patriarchal system which had kept them and their female ancestors bound practically since the beginning of mankind’s reign on earth. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Race Concept and its History

    14 pages in length. Drawing upon the work of David Goldberg's "Racist Culture: Philosophy and the Politics of Meaning," one can readily argue that idea of race has always combined references to what is seen as natural (fixed) and social construct, suggesting that very divergent discourses have been implemented over time as a means by which to account for human diversity within the colonial context of European and non-European differences. Furthermore, the notion of race is not inherent to biology, but rather it is a social and cultural classification that has been erroneously attributed to biological implication. The writer discusses the concept of race from the Puritan colonization to present-day criminal justice system. Bibliography lists 9 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.

  • Management Perspectives of the United States,Japan, and Germany

    A 19 page paper evaluating the thought that US businesses make more business decisions based on short-term performance than do businesses in Germany or Japan. Companies in other parts of the world seem not to be quite so quick to act on the basis of short-term results, but rather to build for the long term. Germany’s BMW and Japan’s Mitsubishi provide distinct counterpoints to the system that has developed in the United States. There are indications, however, that such attention to longevity is changing in today’s business environment. The paper describes some of those changes and points to the influence of long-standing cultural traditions that continue to provide direction in both Germany and Japan. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

  • Article X, Section Four of the Homestead Protection Laws of Florida

    This 8 page paper considers the protection granted to homesteads under Article X section 4. The writer argues that the constitutional protection is providing immoral protection for individuals who are committing fraud and avoiding meeting their obligations. Numerous cases are cited to illustrate the points raised. The bibliography cites 5 sources.

  • Four-Blocks Literacy Framework: Literature Review

    15 pages in length. Reaching and teaching all students in today's troubled academic climate - no matter their (in)capacity to learn - has presented quite a challenge for educators who are often faced with the responsibility of instructing many different types of students within a single classroom. Various methods have been introduced as a means by which to address a system whereby at-risk students fall through the cracks because of not being taught in a way they understand, however, not all have demonstrated a true ability to overcome the struggle. Drs. Dorothy Hall and Patricia Cunningham recognize how all children do not learn alike and therefore require "substantial instruction to support the learning personalities of all students" (Hall et al, 2001), which is why they developed the Four-Blocks Literacy Model. As a "multilevel, balanced literacy framework" (Hall et al, 2001), Four-Blocks incorporates four separate components into each day's lesson plans that instruct children as to how they can read, write and spell better, an approach that focuses upon the academic diversity found in today's schools. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Role of Nurse Educator

    An 8 page research paper that addresses the field of nursing education. Nursing education is a dynamic field that has been challenged in recent years by the issues entailed in the national nursing shortage, as well as the related faculty shortage, while also addressing the innovations presented in increasingly sophisticated technologies (Nurse educator, 2008). This discussion of the nurse educator role looks at various issues associated with this pivotal cog in the nation's healthcare system and the responsibilities involved in being a nurse educator. The final 2 pages on the paper offer an appendix that identifies 5 Internet sites related to nurse educators and discusses these sites. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Knowledge Management

    An 8 page paper. Despite the volumes that have been written about knowledge management, confusion and debate continue about exactly what that means. The writer comments on this fact and explains why this confusion may still exist. The discussion includes the identification of the three areas that need to work together for a firm to develop an effective knowledge management system. The characteristics of the industrial enterprise are compared to those of the knowledge enterprise. The writer then reports the type of leadership style, transactional or transformational, that would seem to be more effective for each of the three components, creating, sharing and exploiting knowledge. 1 Table included. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Personal Home Information and Risk Management

    An 11 page paper discussing the risk to which personal information is subjected at home. Home is the primary repository for personal information for most people. The paper provides an inventory of the types of personal information held in a single home that also houses a business and a graduate student, followed by assessment of the risks to that information and a security plan intended to control those risks. The plan follows that of the “Risk Management Guide for Information Technology Systems,” Special Publication 800-30 of the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NISTA), identifying information assets; assigning a loss value to each; and identifying vulnerabilities and the likelihood of each to arrive at a risk-rating factor for each item. The paper concludes with a security plan for those items at greatest risk. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Medical Doctors and Nurse Practitioners Conflict Management

    A 10 page paper using the Kolb model to examine conflict assessment and management. As health care changes and patients increasingly take active roles in their own health care, they care less about hierarchy than they do results and practical application rather than medical theory. Though the struggle is between nurse practitioners and physicians, it is the patient ultimately most affected. In today’s health care system as it currently exists, nurses not only have “more time” for direct patient interaction than do MDs, they also generally have greater motivation. The model presented here stresses communication and experimentation. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Bone Cancer Case Study and Nursing Interventions

    An 8 page research paper that addresses a specific case scenario, which deal with nursing interventions for a 52-year-old woman who has been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, which is metastasized to the left hip and involves the lymphatic system. She presents to the oncology nursing unit with severe bone pain in her left hip. She has already undergone external radiation therapy (palliative) and is suffering from severe nausea and vomiting. The patient and her family are having difficulty coping, both with the patient's current health status and with the terminal prognosis. This investigation examines three aspects of this patient's care and possible nursing interventions: bone pain; nausea and vomiting; and psychosocial interaction with the patient and her family in regards to coping. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Angina Pectoris From a Nursing Perspective

    An 11 page paper discussing angina from a nursing perspective. Angina pectoris can be regarded as an 'early warning system' heralding cardiovascular disease, but it also is a condition that itself needs to be managed. Treated angina results in far fewer occurrences of myocardial infarction (MI) than untreated angina. Patients know that the possibility of MI is great after they are diagnosed with angina, and nurse-led care programs are highly effective in providing quality patient education as well as alleviating patients' fears. This paper reviews the condition and discusses nurse-led management of it. Includes a 3-page outline and an abstract. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Theories of Leadership and Nursing

    A 7 page research paper that discusses leadership theories. Healthcare today faces numerous and complicated challenges that must be overcome in order to maintain the viability of healthcare organizations. To meet and overcome these difficulties, effective leadership in the contemporary healthcare system is essential. Therefore, examination of leadership theories and models in order to determine their effectiveness is highly salient to meeting the needs of nursing both now and in the immediate future. This examination will specifically examine three leadership theories, transformational, transactional and participative, before discussing the contribution of such theoretical models to nursing and drawing relevant conclusions and showing that nursing leadership should be a combination of all three approaches, with an emphasis on the participative leadership model. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Nursing Shortage In The United States: Causes, Effects And Solutions

    8 pages in length. The health care industry is fraught with struggles that keep people from obtaining the medical attention they need in a system where patients often pay the price for social and political agendas. One area in which this fall down of services is felt especially hard is with regard to nationwide nursing shortages that place patients in a highly vulnerable situation when they are admitted to a facility where one trained nurse must oversee three times the number of people than is safely or ethically acceptable. The variables that have constructed this national problems are such that it is becoming uncertain what type of care one will find from one hospital visit to the next. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Nursing Homes and the Financial Crisis Confronting Them

    This 20 page report discusses the state of the nursing home industry in the United States and the many problems and challenges it has face and continues to face. Even though Congress restored nearly $3 billion to skilled nursing facilities in 1999, it still wasn’t enough to keep many of the facilities operating. In general, the government’s payment system and the ever-increasing costs of doing business and providing services has resulted in financial disasters throughout the nursing home industry, especially for the most financially leveraged nursing home chains. Issues associated with nursing homes’ financial, regulatory, and administrative problems are discussed. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Tulving/Episodic Memory

    A 3 page article review that summarizes the main points of “Episodic Memory: from mind to brain” by Endel Tulving (2002), published in the Annual Review of Psychology, which presents a thorough discussion of this neurocognitive system that includes the history of this concept; what is known today; criticism of the concept; its biological reality and the current state functional neuroimaging in regards to memory. In so doing, Tulving proves his hypothesis, which is that “episodic memory is a true, even if as yet generally unappreciated, marvel of nature” (Tulving, 2002, p. 1). No additional sources cited.

  • Sexual Abuse as a Cause of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

    15 pages in length. The preponderance of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) being caused by neglect and abuse – most frequently sexual abuse - during childhood has given researchers a significantly greater understanding of how and why people develop BPD. Historically, the connection between borderline personality disorder and general abuse has been duly noted, however, the specific component of sexual abuse has been discovered more and more frequently in contemporary research findings that indicate how sexual abuse may serve to modify or sensitize the stress system in a detrimental manner. Moreover, it has been suggested that the brain's central area may undergo trauma that, when experienced during childhood, can impair emotional memories. Self-esteem, ego and the fundamental ability to like oneself – as well as relate to others on an even platform of emotional stability – play a synergistic role in the extent to which people with BPD are ultimately molded by the sexual abuse they experienced during childhood.

  • Railroads of Guatemala and Their Economic History

    16 pages in length. The economic history of Guatemala's railroads has been one of significant upheaval with regard to its status, structure and overall existence. It has, indeed, been a long and winding road for Guatemala's railway system in that it has experienced quite a metamorphosis within the past several years.

The writer discusses the economic history of Guatemala's railroads. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Management and Airport Security

    A 16 page paper. Airport security has changed in the United States and other countries since the September 11 attacks. Had certain technology, like face recognition, been installed, at least two of the hijacker may never have boarded the plane. Many different systems have been proposed and some have been initiated. For example, the airport in Amsterdam installed iris scanning technology for passengers who fly a great deal. A similar pilot program was installed in one terminal at JFK is using iris scanning for employees. This paper discusses the types of biometric devices that are being considered and/or that have been installed and where they are being used to improve airport security. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Failures at the Passport Office; The Summer of 1999

    In the summer of 1999 the passport agency and the United Kingdom faced a crisis. The implementation of the new computer system resulted in lengthy delays in the issuing of passports. This 10 page paper is written in two parts. The first part of the paper looks at the reasons why projects fail looking at a range of models that encompass a broad-spectrum of potential causes of failure. The second part of the paper examines the case of the passport agency in the context of the potential reasons failure identified in the first part of the paper. The bibliography cites 12 sources.

  • Nursing and Employment Satisfaction

    An 8 page paper addressing the problem of stress and job satisfaction in the nursing profession. The paper includes a literature review and a proposed intervention that ultimately is taken over by the nurses themselves. A facilitator initiates the intervention and conducts a two-hour training overview, but then the nurses themselves meet later to discuss those issues important to them at the time. Underlying theory is that of the Neuman Systems Model, except in this case it is the nurse being focused on, rather than the patient. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Reflection Process Recording

    3 pages in length. Much of life's attempts at communication is fraught with misunderstanding or misconstrue. In the field of nursing, this reality can be deadly. One of the many ways to uphold a working system of checks and balances is through the practice called process recording. Nursing - more than virtually all other profession - relies upon the mastery of the health caregiver to maintain open communication with the patient; as such, it is a daunting task to verify each and every process without the help of creating a record of interaction. Behind the overall concept of process recording is to provide an opportunity for self-reflection in relation to the way in which interpersonal communication is approached. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • New Nursing Theory Formulation

    A 10 page paper constructing a new nursing theory. “Theory” is not merely some nebulous entity arising from ruminations far removed from nursing practice and patient outcome. Rather, it can be a tool for devising the optimal treatment plan for patients in a variety of areas. The one focused on here is the struggle against alcoholism. The patient used as example in this paper, Mr. Walker, is a 42-year-old man with a history of noncompliance recovering from alcohol hepatitis with jaundice. The relational statement providing a foundation for a new theory is that the greater number of variables contained in a system, the greater the chances that a patient can negotiate through them and maintain higher numbers of subsystems in equilibrium. Included in the discussion are the topics of the nature of theory; the central propositional statement and underlying assumptions; concepts on which to build the theory; and translating the new theory into practice. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • U.S. Nursing Shortage

    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.

  • President George W. Bush's 'No Child Left Behind' Act and Its Implementation

    5 pages in length. Contemporary society has a significant challenge on its hands: to provide students with a strong enough education to meet the ever-growing standards imposed by society. As a means by which to address this tremendous need, President Bush instituted the No Child Left Behind Act, which calls for the implementation of solutions to what he deems as the ten most important concerns within the nation's school system: Achieving Excellence Through High Standards and Accountability; Improving Literacy by Putting Reading First; Improving Teacher Quality; Improving Math and Science Instruction; Moving Limited English Proficient Students to English Fluency; Promoting Parental Options and Innovative Programs; Encouraging Safe Schools for the 21st Century; Enhancing Education Through Technology; Providing Impact Aid; and Encouraging Freedom and Accountability. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Literature for Young Adults and Homosexuality

    This 6 page personal essay discusses homosexuality and the fact that it should be presented in young adult literature along with any other issue that will have an impact on a young person’s life. The author points out that there are people who think of it as a the most heinous of sins “against nature” and others who believe it is of no more relevance than the color of one’s eyes. And, of course, there are others who are convinced that they “aren’t bothered” by gays and lesbians but don’t understand why “they can’t just keep to themselves.” Each of these attitudes are attitudes which have evolved as the result of personal experience and belief systems, most of which were established before a person reached adulthood. What an adolescent or teen reads serves as an important component in shaping his or her beliefs. To deny that homosexuality exists r to declare it as a perversion or sin only serves to negate the existence of an entire group of people. No sources listed.

  • Sexual Orientation Discrimination and Laws of the United Kingdom

    This 8 page paper considers the cases of R v Ministry of Defence ex parte Smith, [1996] IRLR 347 as well as Lustig-Prean and Beckett v United Kingdom (1999) [Application Nos 31417/96 and 32377/96] and compares the findings of the national court with that of the European court. These cases involved serving remembers of the armed forces that were administratively discharged as they were found to be homosexual. The bibliography cites 7 sources.

  • Overview of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award

    This is a 5 page paper discussing the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA): its history and application in a health care setting. The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) was first introduced in 1987 as a national award for quality in manufacturing in the United States. In 1998, the award was extended to include the health care and education industries. The award is not only meant to award industries for their current quality but to also provide support and guidance for future quality. Regardless of discipline, the award includes certain categories which must be met in regards to establishing and maintaining industry quality which include leadership, strategic planning, human resource development, information analysis, process quality, operational results and customer satisfaction. In physician offices as part of the health care system, a patient-centered focus also creates more of a concentration on patient satisfaction, staff education, and innovation in regards to constant communication with the rest of the health care community. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Sauce Making and Stocks

    6 pages in length. Nature has not always been kind to humans with regard to food quality; ancient man often ate fetid morsels; as time progressed, the quality of meats did not necessarily improve. The British are some of history's favorite representations of how sauces were used as a means by which to cover up the taste of less-than-tasty meats. Then the French took things several steps further by perfecting the sauce making process and turning it into an art, with nineteenth century French chef, Antonin Crème credited with developing the technique into a system that boasted hundreds of sauces categorized into several major sauce groups. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Thin Blue Line

    A 3 page research paper that discusses the film The Thin Blue Line, which is a compelling and significant documentary directed by Errol Morris (Miramax Films, 1988). It tells the story of Randall Adams, who in 1976 was arrested and tried for a murder that he did not commit. This film uncovered evidence that eventually led to Adams' release. In providing this insightful look into how the U.S. judicial system can go awry, the film also demonstrates the awful consequences that can result from the arbitrary labeling of conduct. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Zuger's "Defining A Doctor, With A Tear, A Shrug And A Schedule" - Analysis

    4 pages in length. Zuger's (2004) thesis strives to illustrate the inadequacies of medicine in its historic, contemporary and future state; by chronicling the wholly diverse approaches of two otherwise dedicated doctors, the author provides readers with a significantly greater understanding of how a career in medicine is not one-size-fits-all but rather a result of each individual's perception of what health care should be. Both interns, Zuger (2004) duly points out, reflect opposite ends of the same system, one that does not work to its fullest - and safest - capacity when based upon such extremes. No additional sources cited.

  • Community and Corrections Nursing

    A 7 page paper discussing how the correctional facility nurse can have effect in the local community. The US penal system guarantees appropriate health care to prison inmates. US Supreme Court decisions have determined that withholding any medical treatment where there is urgent need constitutes "cruel and unusual punishment," which of course is not allowed by the Eighth Amendment to the US Constitution or by the American character. Providing nursing service within the prison community offers distinct challenges, but it also offers opportunities that otherwise might never be available to health care providers. Prisons often hold individuals that public health professionals have difficulty locating; extending public health screening to the correctional setting can have direct benefit both within the prison and in the local community when individual inmates are released. Includes an outline. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • GM's Hybrid Car Crown Victoria and Marketing

    A 5 page paper discussing external issues in marketing a hybrid car resulting from a fictitious alliance between Ford and GM. Here, Ford and GM have collaborated in an alliance to produce and market a hybrid car, one that has been a standby in the Ford product line for decades. In past years, Ford has been highly successful in profitably producing and selling trucks of all types, including its popular sports utility vehicle (SUV) lines. It has performed dismally in selling passenger cars, however. GM’s hybrid fuel system will be used in the new product, giving it fuel efficiency not possible in SUVs yet providing families with enough space for children and all their sports gear too. The alliance can present the hybrid as providing the best of all conditions for the traveling family, whether they are traveling across the country or across town. The alliance should focus on greater perceived safety; greater fuel efficiency and environmental responsibility; and the ability for the family to take only one vehicle when traveling together. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Nursing Leadership & Groups

    A 7 page research paper that discusses nursing leadership, which, under any circumstances, is a complicated subject. According to one estimate, there are over 100 accepted academic definitions of leadership (Manz, Bastien and Hostager, 1991). At present, issues of leadership are particularly crucial to nursing as the nursing shortage constitutes a crisis situation for many healthcare institutions and the profession in general. Never has nursing needed effective leadership more; never has the healthcare system depended as greatly as it does at present on nursing leaders. This examination looks at five themes evident in literature pertaining to nursing leadership and how these themes interrelate. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Elements of Psychiatric Nursing Practice

    A 4 page research paper that draws on the nursing model of Hildegarde Peplau, as she is acknowledged to be one of nursing's leading theorists, as she was one of the first to emphasize the importance of the nurse/patient relationship. Peplau's model specifies three phrases in this relationship: orientation (meeting the patient, establishing a relationship), exploitation (the patient takes advantage of the nurse's expertise) and termination (discharge plan is initiated). When Peplau formulated her model of psychiatric nursing, Interpersonal Relations in Nursing, the routines of mental institutes tended to reinforce illness (Sills, 1999). Peplau taught nurses to nurture mental health, to conduct research and seek methods for interrupting the illness maintenance systems (Sills, 1999). This examination of psychiatric nursing practice looks briefly at research literature in order to demonstrate how Peplau's model remains applicable today. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • New York City and Asian American High School Students

Cram schools in NYC are discussed. The writer comments on the effects of stereotyping. The education system in Japan, China and Korea are described to illustrate the effects of culture on learning and achievement. Immigrants from these countries transferred the focus on education from their home countries to America. Statistical data included. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • The Impact of Airport Security Measures on Management Operations

    7 pages in length. The extent to which the airport industry environment is different now than prior to September 11, 2001 illustrates the significant lengths to which the nation's security system has been augmented. This vast development in the wake of America's worst terrorist attack in history is, however, said to be just as inefficient and incapable of averting another 911 episode as what existed before the fateful day; that the airport industry has strategically bolstered itself has made all personnel more keenly aware of the potential for a repeat performance, yet the ultimate performance of these presidential instituted mandates and the Transportation Security Administration role continues to leave gapping holes in the overall objective toward national protection. On a smaller scale, however, advancement is being made in certain areas where tremendous sweeps are not expected to occur – such as onboard – where a smaller cluster of people is able to make a bigger, more immediately visible and overall impact. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Foreign Registered Nurses Recruitment and Nursing Shortage

    A 5 page research paper that discusses foreign recruitment of nurses as a solution to the nursing shortage. Proponents say that it is a practice that benefits the organization and offers benefits to the nurses involved. Opponents to this practice argue that it is robbing the health systems of Third World countries in order to service First World needs. The debate is contentious because both sides have viable points. The writer discusses both sides of the debate, but indicates that the opponents of this practice have the better position. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Effects of Violence in the Media

  • Media Law and People v. Larry Flynt Film

    (5 pp) "If the First Amendment will protect a scumbag like me, then it will protect all of you. Because I'm the worst." Shocking? Perverted? Or - just the every day words of porno king and owner, of Hustler Magazine, Larry Flynt? Are we to believe that the "worst" has brought new meaning to the "First?" Bibliography lists two sources.

  • Jewish History and Spain's 'Golden Age'

    7 pages in length. Major changes occurred in the 11th century when the Umayyads steadily lost power as the Berbers rose in influence after capturing Cordoba in 1013 CE; the passing decades served as their barometer of progressing power. Cultural and commercial prominence became their focus as capitals and other cities were transformed into Meccas for the two very important elements. As these significant changes were taking place, one more addition would serve to establish an entire population as being both welcomed and honored: the Jews. Indeed, these individuals did not come empty-handed into their newfound environment; rather, they brought with them such important endowments as financial aptitude, politics, economic advisory, as well as a vast amount of humanities-related knowledge in the form of literature, academia and science. The blending of art, linguistics, philosophy, science and medicine rounded out a society that was heretofore underdeveloped in many of these areas. As such, the influence of so many learned Jews soon saw intellectuals and doctors alike holding some of the most important social/legal/political positions in the land. No bibliography.

  • 'The End of History?' by Francis Fukuyama

    A 17 page paper that presents an outline and explanation of Fukuyama's thesis about the end of history and the last man. The essay "The End of History?" published in 1989 and the book, The End of History and the Last Man, published in 1992 are still being discussed and analyzed in today's literature. Fukuyama's works created a great deal of furor and criticism in some circles and were applauded in other circles. This paper reports the interpretations of these two works by numerous scholars and also presents the criticisms levied against the thesis by other scholars. The thesis is that liberal democracy has won as the preferred system; this was evidenced by the end of the Cold War and this constitutes the end of history. One question asked by a number of authors is whether Fukuyama means this is the end of history or the end of historical thinking? The thesis is much more complex than this statement would imply and the complexities are discussed and reflected upon. The writer includes their own reflections. Bibliography lists 21 sources.

Finally, what would be the effect on operations management if there was an outbreak of a serious disease. For this question, the essay first comments on the SARS epidemic and the effects on two companies in Asia. Ebola is used as an example, also. The anthrax attack and the change in operations with the U.S. postal service is also discussed. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • How Exercise Delays Onset Of Dementia In Alzheimer's Patients: Literature Review

    20 pages in length. The natural course of aging takes its toll on both the body and mind; as much significant progress medical technology has made, there are still some aspects of human existence it cannot stop or reverse. Multimodal exercise has long been a highly recommended component of the geriatric health protocol as a method by which to tone muscles, strengthen bones stronger and keep all the bodily systems in good function. Why is it, therefore, that exercise is only just recently being associated with the delay onset of dementia when it has such dramatically positive impact upon the rest of the physiological makeup? Second only to the skin, the human brain is the largest organ in the body that responds to stimuli no differently than others, however, it is also vastly complex when compared to the liver or heart; because medical science still has a very long way to go before the mind's holistic function and capacity is known, new realizations of the mind/body connection will continue to be made, not the least of which includes the growing association between physical activity and staving off dementia. Bibliography lists 19 sources.

  • Nursing Practice Improvement and Qualitative Research's Importance

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

  • Pakistan's Miniature Painting

    This is an 8 page paper discussing the history, influences and contemporary issues in miniature painting in Pakistan and India. The art of miniature painting was first known to exist in Persia where it was imported from into India during the 1500s at the beginning of the Mughal dynasties. In the Mughal schools of artistry, the art of miniature painting was given a more intense and dynamic feel which differentiated it from the formal structures used by the Persians. The technique is very specific in its use of wasli paper, squirrel hair brushes and vivid water based paint applied in multiple layers to earn it a silky finish. When the Mughal dynasty was displaced, so too were many of the artists who then had to earn livings applying their craft to other objects such as walls and furniture. During the late 1800s, when Indian nationalism began to take place, a revival of the traditional arts led to the re-introduction of miniature painting into the educational system where artists could earn specialties in it. Today, the art of miniature painting is one of the more popular and traditional methods of art especially found in the graduates of the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistan, the only school in the world offering a specialty in miniature painting. Modern miniature artists apply traditional Mughal methods in their depictions of the contemporary world and the political and lifestyle issues in Pakistan. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
