  • 3 Sociological Views on the Shortage of Nurses

    5 pages in length. The nursing industry of years gone by saw beyond society's brusque and compassionless approach to medicine by providing humanistic care beyond the traditional way. The lack of humanistic care made glaringly apparent by the medical community's unemotional arms-length attitude was precisely what nurses like Florence Nightingale sought to correct, believing that a world without the ability to touch – along with treating the disease – is not a world where actual healing occurs. Under her wing, Nightingale took care of the soldiers while at the same time training other women to "nurse" them back to health. Indeed, one can readily contend that her efforts as a means to humanize the medical industry have often struggled to continue in contemporary practice. Examining today's nursing shortage finds several sociological perspectives under consideration as they relate to Nightingale's original approach, with the tenets of conflict theory, functional analysis and symbolic interactionism employed as a means by which to seek out a more humane and holistic approach to medicine. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Legal and Medical Issues Associated with a Patient's 'Right to Die'

    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. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Are Physicians' Professionalism Sacrificing Humanity?

    6 pages in length. One would automatically surmise that those who enter into the medical field as a doctor would understand the inherent connection between mind and body health.

Adams refused to sacrifice his humanity for the profession he had come to respect and enjoy, partly because he believed he had a great deal of healing to offer, as well as the fact that he saw a significant amount of non-medicinal oversight within the business of mental and physical restoration. Why was Adams’ desire to inspire happiness and frivolity looked upon so disdainfully by his medical associates?

The publication of “History on Trial: Culture Wars and the Teaching of the Past” which describes the heated controversy surrounding the formation of the National History Standards in the mid-1990s, has in itself several controversial issues which makes it a useful tool in discussion forums in the social sciences. The authors of the text, Gary B. Nash, Charlotte Crabtree and Ross E. Dunn were involved in the selection of the committee working on the standards and have provided a background look at the events which took place during the development of the standards. Different issues discussed were the fact that while several historians approved of the constant updating and reinterpretation of historical events in the past and the inclusion of addition of multicultural issues while others believe that history as it has traditionally been taught should not be altered to any extent. The authors provide criticism of their own critics but their close proximity to the situation also provides additional limitations to the work which is provided to the reader as highly subjective in its context.

  • 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.

  • 1920 and 1992 Cinematic Adaptations of James Fenimore Cooper's Last of the Mohicans

    A 6 page research paper/essay that examines 2 film adaptations of James Fenimore Cooper's classic novel of early America The Last of the Mohicans. The two most memorable film adaptations to Cooper's text are widely considered to be the silent 1920 film directed by Maurice Tourneur and the 1992 version directed by Michael Mann. An examination of both films shows that the 1992 version is a worthy successor to the glorious cinematography displayed in Tourneur's film. However, an examination of both films also shows that Mann and his script co-writer, Christopher Crowe, made a number of changes that depart from Cooper's narrative. These changes pertain to details that make the earlier film not only more authentic in regards to Cooper's novel, but they also mean that the latter film avoids issues of racial controversial that the earlier film does not hesitate to address. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Kubrick/The Shining

    A 7 page essay that discusses the 1980 film, The Shining. In this film, director Stanley Kubrick added fresh dimension to the horror film by reinventing many of the conventions of that genre.

For example, Kubrick filmed many of his film's most terrifying scenes in bright daylight or scenes that were brightly lit (Dirks). Unforgettable images build tension as the narrative portrays a man's descent into insanity. The psychological disintegration of the protagonist, Jack Torrance, is portrayed via Kubrick's use of camera angles and effects, as well as the cumulative effect of the other cinematic characteristics of the film. While the writer primarily discusses Kubrick's use of the camera, thematic issues are also discussed. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

This essay discusses the issues and presents the literature. The writer does comment on the practice of using standardized tests with four-year-olds. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Black Literature and Violence

    A 15 page research paper/essay that examines the theme of violence in Frederick Douglass' Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl and W.E.B. Du Bois' The Souls of Black Folk. The writer argues that the violence regularly perpetrated against people of African descent is a common thread connecting these works. While, naturally, these authors address other issues and complications of the institution of slavery, violence provides a background theme that serves to underscore all else. It is the coercive and pervasive element that white mainstream culture uses to keep blacks "in their place" during the antebellum era, and long after African Americans theoretically were free. In regards to the slave narratives of Douglass and Jacobs, the writer focuses on the differences between male and female slave experience. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Math Classrooms and Cultural Sensitivity

    A 12 page paper. As schools become even more diversified, teachers face daunting challenges in creating a classroom that meets the needs of all students. Math is typically viewed as the subject area in which culturally and linguistically diverse students would have the fewest problems. This is not true. Upon more careful review, we find that mathematics has its own language and includes terminology that can easily cause confusion to culturally diverse students. This essay begins with general comments about teaching linguistically and culturally diverse students and provides suggestions within that discussion. The essay then discusses issues concerning classroom environment and then, language and materials in the teaching of math. Suggestions for improving math instruction for students from different cultures are included. There are also specific discussions about African-American and Hispanic students.

  • 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.

  • Email Laws and Relevant Literature

    4 pages in length. The tremendous impact computers have had upon today's global community represents the staggering progress contemporary society is experiencing. That business is conducted from opposite ends of the planet, people forge lifelong relationships without ever having met and employees work from the comfort and convenience of home via telecommuting speaks to the reality of what was once only far off aspirations. Indeed, the benefit of computers far outweighs the inherent drawbacks, however, those negative aspects are not so insignificant that they can be ignored; rather, the extent to which such concerns as email laws are necessary to address issues pertaining to personal privacy, unsolicited correspondence/advertisements and hacking. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Multiculturalism And Literature In The Classroom

  • Environmental Scientific Principles and the Hunting Issue

    5 pages in length. By the inherent rights of being human, man believes he has the privilege to impose dominion over the animal world. Nowhere is this more evident than with the sport of hunting. However, there are myriad implications with what many consider to be an innocent pastime; inasmuch as recreational hunters upset the natural progression of species and their predators, they place the delicate balance of nature in grave danger. In reviewing this article, it is clear to see that there is a definite injustice going on in the name of fun. The writer discusses how the principles of environmental science that apply to the issue of hunting reach significantly deeper into the fundamental framework than most people realize. No additional sources cited.

  • Answering 4 Operations Management Questioins

    This 15 page paper responds to four questions that address how certain environmental events or conditions would affect operations management in corporations. The first question discuses the effects of an increase or decrease in tariffs. The beef industry and the higher tariff in Japan is used as an example. Second, what effect would more stringent air and water quality laws have on operations. The Kodak company's problems with the EPA are explained in this discussion. The next issue has to do with the expectation for greater employee empowerment in the workplace. FedEx is the example used in this discussion. 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.

  • Formation of Security Management Policy and Risk Management Effects

    An 18 page paper discussing issues that need to be addressed when forming security risk management policy. The very essence of developing an effective security policy is dependent in great extent to the level of risk that exists. It has been demonstrated repeatedly that network and computer administrators face the threat of security breach each day. Building security is less predictable, particularly as groups of fanaticals place their energies into dreaming up increasingly grand plans for murdering innocents by the thousands. Those responsible for forming and implementing security management policy must be aware of the types of risk faced by the organization and then control for contributing factors. The paper discusses management of risks that are both physical and informational. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

  • Facilities Management and Advanced Organizational Modeling

    This 12 page report discusses the application of organizational modeling in the improvement of facilities maintenance teams and departments. The realm of facilities management may include processing maintenance work orders; scheduling equipment maintenance; tracking and ordering parts; keeping up with warranties; and making sure that facilities and workers adhere to safety, environmental and other workplace regulations. In other circumstances it may be tracking and monitoring the qualifications of the workers to ensure that they are qualified to do their jobs. It still other situations, “facilities management” is likely to mean keeping the organization’s physical structures and their components. Regardless of how it is defined overall, the essential issue is that people work together to facilitate innovation and improvement on behalf of the entire organization. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Advertising and Marketing in Health Care

    An 18 page paper discussing the growing acceptance of marketing and advertising within the health care industry. There are three ways that health systems can build their bottom lines. One is by raising rates, which has been resisted and condemned by nearly every aspect of health care. Another is to cut costs. Cost-cutting efforts have been in place for years, to the extent that employee morale has been decimated in many organizations and patient care has been known to suffer. The final method of increasing the bottom line is to build volume, which health care systems are actively embracing as average marketing expenditures have risen by nearly $500,000 annually in a single decade. The paper discusses current marketing issues, marketing communications and advertising, decision-making techniques and considerations in developing marketing plans. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Flaubert's Parrot by Julian Barnes

    A 5 page research paper that examines Julian Barnes' novel Flaubert's Parrot. Towards the end of this work, the protagonist, Dr. Geoffrey Braithwaite concedes that he has failed in his purpose to write an account that would make sense out of his life. Despite his ramblings and investigations throughout the narrative, Braithwaite closes his observations without stating anything unequivocally concerning his own life, his late wife, or his investigations into the life of the famous author Gustave Flaubert. While this suggests that the novel concludes with issues unresolved, an examination of the structure of this work reveals how the reader perceives a story that is different from the one that Braithwaite believes he is telling. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Southern California's Organic Farming Pros and Cons

    6 pages in length. Contemporary society is clamoring for organic foods in light of all the reports revealing the level of pesticide contamination and herbicide degradation that has appeared in recent food supplies. Southern California farmers are no different in their desire to please the rest of the country, which is why many distributors are incorporating organic farming into their techniques. In order to meet such a demand, however, some farmers throughout southern California are jumping on the organic bandwagon without first applying the concepts of organic farming, which inevitably precludes them from addressing pertinent issues in a proactive way, such as pesticides and water supply. Securing a labor force willing to engage in the physical demands of organic farming is yet another problem faced by southern California organic farmers, inasmuch as immigrant workers are, for the most part, not educated in relation to alternative growing methods. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Fathers, Sons, and the Bonding Created by Sports

    16 pages in length. Fathers and sons share many experiences that help to fortify their relationship; however, there is perhaps no better bonding agent than the shared experience of sports. Indeed, fathers dream of the day they can teach their sons how to play catch, hit a softball or go long for a pass, which clearly illustrates the bonding powers inherent to sporting activities. For boys who may have tenuous associations with their fathers, the very act of engaging in some type of sports often has a cathartic effect upon the issue that stands between them, ultimately affording the father and son to bridge whatever gaps might exist between them. Sports is also an excellent way for boys to work off the growing trend towards childhood stress, while at the same time have fun and further solidify the bond with their fathers. As well, father/son sports activities are a great way to draw out an individual with an otherwise low self-image and help bolster a strong and healthy dose of self-esteem. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

What remains at present is to ensure that current suppliers will be able to meet anticipated volume increases, and to design the new business goals in such a manner that they do not adversely affect existing customers. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Plasma Lipids and Nutritional Impacts

    5 pages in length. Proper nutrition is, quite literally, the lifeblood of existence. Provide the body with the appropriate food sources and the body will respond by remaining healthy and full of energy; inundate it with poor choices or an overabundance of any given food category and it will rebel the only way it knows how: with disease. Therefore, the phrase 'you are what you eat' is not merely a meaningless cliché; instead, it reflects the various eating patterns found in any given culture and the corresponding health issues directly associated with such dietary choices. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • The U.S. Civil War: Causes and Implications

    A 5 page paper. Slavery is most often cited as the cause of the American Civil War but like any war, there were a number of underlying causes besides the issue of slavery.

  • 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.

  • California State Department Of Mental Health: Infant Preschool Family Mental Health Initiative Delivery Of Services

    7 pages in length. Maintaining stable mental health is a critical component to being able to live within a civilized society; those whose mental health is compromised for any number of reasons are often without appropriate resources to help them function at an adequate cognitive level. As a direct result, these individuals may gravitate toward fringe communities whereby the challenge of meeting basic human needs is greater than they can achieve. Indeed, adults with mental health problems are difficult enough to assist through limited state services, but when the individual in question is an infant or young child, it becomes critical for the state to intervene in the effort to fend off a lifetime of mental instability. The California Infant Preschool Family Mental Health Initiative (IPFMHI), conceived as a way in which to develop and expand "infant and early mental health services for children age birth to five and their families" (Knapp, 2006). Prevention, however, is as much a part of this service as is addressing existing problems, being that the Initiative - as part of the overall California State Department of Mental Health - is rooted as much in avoiding mental health issues as it is in intervention. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • The Patriot Act

    A 10 page research paper that examines The Patriot Act. On March 9, 2006, the Patriot Act was renewed after a year of proposals, counterproposals, two extensions and extensive negotiations (Pike 1). Despite numerous compromises and revisions that are intended to safeguard the civil liberties of American citizens, the Patriot Act and its implementation continue to be a source of hot debate and contention.

Or is the Act being used within an ethical, focused manner that targets only national security threats? This examination of literature on the Patriot Act attempts to answer these questions and present the facts pertaining to this controversial legislation. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Individual Rights Usurped by the U.S. Supreme Court

    A 5 page paper that argues the following: over the years, individual rights have been denied by the Supreme Court. In the criminal justice system, this has lead to the relaxing of laws to the extent that our Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights have been seriously infringed upon. All rights to personal freedoms in the workplace have been taken away by the Supreme Court, and women's rights to abortion have been substantially reduced. The remaining issue for many of us is the Supreme Court's decision on First Amendment rights in regards to imposed decency on the Internet. This decision is expected within the next month. We can only hope it is not their desire to usurp further rights from United States citizenry. The affect on global Internet business is inestimable. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Copies of sources included.

  • Was Monica Lewinsky's Testimony a Lie?

    This 10 page report discusses whether or not Monica Lewinsky lied in her testimony regarding her relationship with President Bill Clinton. The larger issues of Lewinsky’s truthfulness or lies have become what role did President Clinton (or his advisors) play in telling her what to say, how to say it, and when to say it. When called to give an affidavit under oath, was she entirely truthful? And then, was she truthful when she said she lied? Such questions have been the basis for obsessive speculation for months and the one truth that does remain is the fact that the American people will never know the truth! Annotated bibliography lists 5 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. This examination of this topic addresses literature and what it reveals about the extent of the problem, as well as proposed solutions. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Mental Health Counseling: Child Abuse And Neglect

    7 pages in length. Antisocial behavior is considered one of the many consequences adolescents and adults harbor from childhood abuse/neglect, as are issues of intimate bonding and repeating the harmful behavior inflicted upon the child.

Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Religions of Ancient Egypt

    This 8 page paper provides an overview of this issue. The communities of Ancient Egypt from the 1st to the 18th dynasties were highly defined by an emerging sense of public representations of religion. Prior to the 1st dynasty, approximately 4000 B. C., religion was not an imperative component of the public administration of communities, but this changed around 3050 BC, and resulted in the progression of established religious practices and religious ideals that were prevalent for the next 17 dynasties. Though substantial changes occurred over the span of the time between the 1st and 18th dynasties, the resulting views of religion relative to the progression of Egyptian society demonstrates the importance of the base of religion in the 1st dynasty. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Liberal Democracy of Japan

    8 pages in length.

Looking at various entities -- including political institutions and practices, participation of the public in the political system and protest movements, effects of the media, effects of the bureaucracy and local government, dominance of the Liberal Democratic Party, as well as the 1993 election results -- one is bound to gain a clearer perspective upon the issue of Japan's move toward liberal democracy.

The path to well being could not be more different between Eastern and Western philosophies; through man's successes in technological advancement, allopathic methods have virtually overshadowed consumer knowledge of or interest in ancient Eastern holism. That Western health care is based within a foundation of surgery and pharmacology while Eastern approaches it from an unadulterated, holistic approach speaks to a tremendous rift in how both entities perceive the path to wellness. This is not to say, however, that allopathic medicine is either inappropriate as a treatment method but rather that it is unsuitable as the only option when Eastern medicine is rooted in proven healing for the past 2,500 years. Taking a pill to ride the body and mind of anxiety, depression and insomnia of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is merely treating the symptom rather than addressing the issues that have ultimately manifested in these ailments. Utilizing such holistic modalities as auricular acupuncture serves to unblock the trapped energy inherent to trauma response so it begins to channel through the body and mind continuum restoring both mental and physical well being.

  • Erik Erikson: Biography and Theory

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

  • Piety, the Bible, Sophocles, and Plato

    A 4 page essay that contrasts and compares Plato's Euthyphro, Sophocles' Oedipus and the Book of Genesis, chapter 22. The writer points out that all of these works concern the perspective of ancient peoples on issues of piety, justice and the manner in which these issues intersect with religion. Examination of these texts shows that Sophocles and the author of Genesis agree that divine authority demands and deserves unquestioning obedience. However, Plato, in representing the philosophy of Socrates, presents a more ambiguous picture that emphasizes the unreliability of a purely religious foundation for issues of justice. Analysis of these positions shows that Plato's stance in Euthyphro is the most logical-- and just-- by modern standards. No additional sources cited.

  • 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.

  • Western English Society and Male and Female Suicidal Behavior

    15 pages in length. Suicide: The quest to end one's life by means other than natural death. That a person would want to commit suicide is clearly indicative of a severe mental disorder that leads to feelings of hopelessness and despair; that men are far and away more prone to taking their own lives is indicative of pressures inherent to the male gender in a civilized society. Indeed, living in today's world requires a strong mental and emotional stamina in order to deal with the myriad issues and concerns with which people are bombarded on a regular basis. For the most part, people deal with these periodic problems in typical fashion by addressing the issue and seeking resolution; for others, however, even seemingly insignificant problems are blown up into catastrophic circumstances where the individual is unable to cope. When things begin to reach a breaking point and the person believes there is no end in sight, the most attractive lure by which to escape this torment is suicide. Both Canada and the United States, two western English speaking societies, have high statistical findings in relation to national suicide that indicate a significantly higher rate among men than women.

    A 5 page paper discussing differences in management considerations of professionals as opposed to hourly service workers, such as the employees of a fast food restaurant.

They also need to have the means to ensure accountability. Most social workers are committed to their jobs in terms of ideology and personal conviction, however. They are unlikely to require much if any supervision for the purposes of ensuring productivity. Adherence to procedure and creative solutions to administrative problems are of greater issue for social worker supervisors. Bibliography lists 5 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.

  • 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.

Rather, the author carefully yet quite effectively touches upon marriage, its meaning within the social backdrop, as well as the requirements necessary to maintain its existence; however, this tale delves much deeper into the aspect of marriage than what merely resides upon the surface. It is through intense character examination in Act IV, Scene V that the reader is able to see beyond the marital façade to a more realistic place where the Congreve's protagonist inevitably dwells.

  • The Artwork of Artemisia Gentileschi

    7 pages in length. The artwork of Artemisia Gentileschi is a celebration of gender, with particular emphasis upon issues of feminism and patriarchal control. Indeed, the young Gentileschi portrays the perpetuation of feminism; not only are her artistic endeavors a solid reflection of her sentiments but so is the manner in which she reflects the outward quest for female reawakening. Gentileschi displays her craft well and does not hesitate to apply her talent as more of a social statement than one of mere visual appreciation. The writer discusses how thus is the case with her ongoing artistic assertion that there is 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.

  • Marshall Berman's All That is Solid Melts Into Air and David Harvey's The Condition Of Postmodernity

    5 pages in length. With tremendous literary eloquence and startling authenticity, David Harvey's "The Condition of Postmodernity" and Marshall Berman's "All That is Solid Melts Into Air" address the notion of modernity and all that it has produced. Both Harvey and Berman approach the topic in a somewhat variant manner than others who have attempted to tackle the same issues, in that they strive to achieve a more spiritual basis for what has transpired due to modernistic events with regard to culture, architecture, art and society. The common denominator of imagery utilized by the two authors enables the reader to gain a significantly better understanding of just how critical the periods of modernity and postmodernity have been to the overall existence of society.

  • 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.

  • An Overview of Child Development Issues

It is not only one area of science or social science. The topic is broad and can be overwhelming if one does not keep in mind the simple concept of nurture verses nature. A child must be nurtured. He/she should not be abused or thrown away. A child is a human being after all, and as such has not only the right to develop but also the right to develop in a manner that is acceptable, normal, healthy, and good for the child.

  • Anxiety Attacks and the Analysis of Sigmund Freud

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

  • Censorship and Utilitarianism Memo

    8 pages in length. The objective of this memo is to demonstrate the relationship between utilitarianism and censorship, if there is indeed one that truly exists. At issue is whether or not utilitarianism has a place in the framework of censorship and if it does, to what extent is this association deemed beneficial or disadvantageous. When assessing these concerns, it is important to consider the fact that utilitarianism represents the belief that what serves the greatest number serves the greater good, rather than what is favorable for a few; similarly, censorship has to do with forbidding people to express themselves in the manner best suited to their needs. With that in mind, one can easily see how censorship and utilitarianism may not have the most harmonious relationship. The writer discusses utilitarianism as it relates to censorship. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

The writer discusses just how liable the service industry can be with regard to patrons who leave the establishment after consuming alcoholic beverages and ultimately cause a deadly accident. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Genders, Cultures, and Communication

Considering the multitude of cultural variance that exists throughout the world, it is quite easy to understand the inherent difficulties when one society attempts to communicate with another when there is only a minimum of comprehension of the other's language. The same holds true for gender differences when it comes to communication, inasmuch as men and women are taught distinctive and sometimes opposing interaction techniques as early as childhood. The writer discusses the difficulties and alternatives in relation to cultural and gender differences. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • Job Satisfaction and Various Contributing Factors

    An 18 page research paper investigating positive factors of job satisfaction among public-sector administrators. Job satisfaction typically has been seen as being uniform among workers, whether those workers are employed in the public or private sectors.

Findings of this research indicate that in addition, those factors also vary between levels of responsibility in the public sector. Also, other issues not related to actual job duties can affect job satisfaction, such as the ability to more comfortably combine work and family life. There were time constraints on this work; the paper recommends that the research methods be modified in the future in order to allow more time for respondents' to participate and that public-service agencies simply ask their employees what would make their work lives both easier and more rewarding so that conditions can better be tailored to the needs of employees of individual government agencies. Bibliography lists 39 sources.

  • International Business Issues and Contracts in the Marketplace

    A 19 page paper discussing cultural, political, ethical and currency issues in international business.

Overall growth has been much greater than that, but expansion of the domestic market for manufactured goods is much lower than the overall rate of growth. It still is the world's emerging markets that offer the greatest hope for the mid-range future. Those emerging markets offer so much promise that it is worthwhile for US multinationals to overcome cultural, linguistic and political differences while managing for currency risks, but it is still imperative to set contracts with those factors in mind. Bibliography lists 31 sources.

  • Facilities Management and Advanced Organizational Modeling

Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Taking Chances in The Stand, Desperation, and Insomnia by Stephen King

While racism enters the story in as much as it is a constant leit motif in all aspects Western humanity journeying to the “dark continent” of Africa. It is simple to dismiss questions of racism as a normal reaction of the age in which Conrad was writing. However, what must also be noted is that in Conrad’s constant yet subtle ways, his style and narrative technique disguises his distorted portrayal of Africa, to the extent that the reader may unconsciously accept what Marlow says without questioning the validity of his allegations. No secondary sources.

Both texts are examined before relating this issue's practical application to current ministry. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Social Change is Not Reflected by Statutory Law

    Brown v. Board of Education passed into law in 1954, Miranda v. Arizona in 1966, and the Warren court has been out of existence for decades. New laws passed in the U.S. include all kinds of dictatorial aspects including the issue of Homeland Security where the Privacy Act has usurped all rights to an individual’s privacy. This is similar to reasoning behind the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which requires public corporations to keep an electronic copy of every type of correspondence ever passing in or out of a company (including email and post it notes) so that a companies records are complete in case the company investigated by the Federal government. As this shows, statutory controls have gotten out of hand, not the least of which includes an ancient criminal justice system. 4 works cited. jvStatut.rtf

  • Critique of The Inefficiency of Honesty by Stephen L. Carter

    5 pages in length. Stephen L. Carter's "The Inefficiency of Honesty" is a quest to differentiate the meaning of honesty and integrity. To be sure, society has come to equate each one with the other to the point that one can be utilized interchangeably with the other when applying their inherent principles. However, Carter effectively demonstrates how, while both words appear to hold the same significance with regard to meaning, they are quite diverse in their purpose. Indeed, anyone can be honest, as Carter points out, but that honesty does always not have to be accompanied by integrity in order to hold its value. Inasmuch as honesty relates to truth and integrity relates to the issues of what is morally right and wrong, it is clear to see that one has something to do with the other but the two are most assuredly singular entities. The writer offers a critique of Carter's article. No additional sources cited.

  • Issues of Emergency Response Disaster Management

    A 20 page paper discussing issues surrounding emergency response as it relates to disaster management. The paper discusses emergency response resulting from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, but it also discusses events such as Hurricane Fran in 1996, centering on the coast of North Carolina where the category 3 storm made landfall. The key to effective emergency response - excluding the training that can be seen as being a constant value – lies in the quality of communication between diverse teams and agencies responding to the event that has generated a crisis. The purpose here is to address two primary questions: “Are emergency responders equipped to communicate with others outside of their departments in time of crisis? [and] What are strategies to improve communications?” The paper concludes that emergency response in urban areas is highly effective, but that the same efforts in rural areas can be hindered by communication deficiencies. Bibliography lists 11 sources. A companion 16-slide Power Point presentation is available.

  • Overview of Engineering Ethics

    This 12 page paper provides an overview of this issue. William LeMessurier's decision to withhold information from the public regarding the structural defects of the Citicorp building in New York City, and to later expose his knowledge about the flaws, has often been viewed as a very ethical way of dealing with a difficult situation. LeMessurier has been touted as one example of an ethical respondent in a situation that seemed to almost warrant unethical behavior. Closer examination, though, of both his choices and his actions demonstrate that LeMessurier was playing a kind of engineering "god," and that his choices threatened the life and safety of tens of thousands of people.

  • The Need for Hard-Back Books

    A 3 page essay that discusses why hard-back books are better than reading books online. Reading a book is not the same as reading text on a computer screen. This is true for several reasons. First of all, there is the immediacy of hard-back book, as everything the reader needs is there, at the fingertips. There is also the factor of portability, that is, not everyone has a laptop or a book reader. Also, there is the problem of copyright and issues pertaining to access, which seem likely to continue to constitute obstacles to Internet access to recent books. Taking these points individually, the value of hard-back books is self-evident. Bibliography lists 1 source.

  • Human Behavior: Conditioned Responses

    9 pages in length. The prevalence of conditioned response within the fundamental basis of human behavior illustrates how the concept of reward/punishment is integral to the way in which people act. To understand the connection between stimulus and learned behavior is to realize the strong motivational factor that draws an association between the two; that behaviorists like Pavlov and Skinner have clearly demonstrated the extent to which behavior in all species is prompted by reward/punishment outcome speaks to the straightforwardness of rescripting undesirable behaviors into desirable ones. The inherent value of such knowledge lends itself to addressing issues in criminality, education and a whole host of other areas where conduct plays an important role in a civilized society. Moreover, understanding the cues of behavior and how they are manipulated provides psychologists with the opportunity to restructure destructive thought processes. In short, Pavlov and Skinner set the precedent for proving how the components of human behavior are both simple and finite. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Conflict Resolution & Iran

    A 10 page research paper that argues that there are alternatives to military intervention in regards to US policy towards Iran.

Is the US headed toward an other military conflict, or can this situation be handled through diplomatic means, specifically through implementation of conflict resolution principles? This examination of this issue argues that conflict resolution offers a viable alternative to military intervention. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

A decade ago, the United Nations issued a proclamation stating that all children of the world have the right to expect a life in which they have decent clothing and shelter, and have enough food to sustain life. The proclamation also made rather vague statements regarding their rights to safety and basic human rights as well. It may not have produced results for the children, but did serve to set off heated debates around the world as to any further or hidden meaning that the statements may have been designed to convey. The paper discusses implications of children’s rights in terms of general, legal, civil, “life” and medical issues, including discussions of research that has been done in each. Bibliography lists 24 sources.

  • Providing Comfort in the Emergency Room

    As an ER nurse, it is easy to get caught up in the fast pace of the environment, to focus on the technical and critical nature of nursing in the ER and to forget that patients are people with hopes and fears and dreams rather than just people exhibiting illnesses and crying out in pain for immediate release. It is even easier in a rush to forget that these patients have families that care deeply for the welfare of their loved ones in need of urgent medical care and what that implies. For this reason, I sometimes repeat the hospital mission to myself like a mantra to help bring me out of my single-minded focus on the medical well-being of patients and be open to dealing with their immediate emotional well-being as well, as required by the necessity for providing comfort as well. 5 references. jvERexpe.rtf

  • Career Objectives and Philosophy of Nursing

    3 pages in length. Nursing, a profession that was decidedly more of the female persuasion in the mid-eighteen hundreds, has long been considered an extension of a woman's natural ability to nurture. Had it not been for Florence Nightingale's attempts to humanize the medical profession in the nineteenth century, there is no telling where contemporary society would be with regard to humane and appropriate medical care. Fast forward to the twenty-first century and it is clear how nurses play an integral role in the overall development and application of standards of care, the transmission of scientific and humanistic caring, professional performance, ethics, as well as the level of competency expected from the industry.

  • Personal Philosophy of Nursing

    A 3 page essay that offers a template for a student nurse to use in writing about his/her personal nursing philosophy. A nurse’s beliefs “regarding humanity, values, the nature of nursing, the focus of nursing, the goals of practice and the focus of nursing research and education” collectively formulate a personal philosophy of nursing that informs and shapes that particular nurse’s practice behaviors (Courier, 2008). As a medical profession, nursing knowledge draws upon the related scientific fields (CSUB, 2006). However, nursing also goes beyond the medical model of healthcare delivery to stress humanistic, caring qualities that address the emotional, psychological side of human experience, as well as physiological needs. The purpose of the following essay is to provide a guide to a nursing student that can aid that student in describing his or her own personal philosophy of nursing. Bibliography lists 3 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.

  • First Respondents and Handling Critical Incident Stress

    6 pages in length. Reaction to critical incidents, such as tragedies, deaths, serious injuries, hostage and/or threatening situations, require the human being to respond in a way that intensifies the inherent stress related to Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Those within the rescue field are prone to inordinate levels of stress over and above many other professions; as a result, extremely traumatic or overwhelming situations sometimes spawn a damaging psychological reaction called Critical Incident Stress. Those who are involved with events that are far more serious than others will attend Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) as a means by which to diffuse some of the internal emotional buildup caused by post-traumatic stress, but sometimes that is not enough to address the extent to which an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or firefighter is suffering. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Contemporary Nursing Ethics

    A 5 page research paper that discusses a case scenario and the ethical issues involved. Due to medical innovation and advancement, more patients are living longer with chronic diseases. But while these innovations can prolong life, death is eventually inevitable for everyone and, therefore, it seems logical that the majority of nurses will be called upon at some point in their roles to provide palliative care. Therefore, this writer/tutor chose to focus this exploration of a nursing ethics situation on a case recounted by LaDuke (2004) that describes her feelings and decision-making process concerning palliative care for a patient whom LaDuke cared for during the 1990s. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Two Classical Era Ethical Theorists on Animal Experimentation

    6 pages in length. The ethical nature of animal experimentation has long been debated as to whether or not it stands as a necessary element for humanity. After all, the primary -- if not only -- reason animals are utilized in laboratory tests is to further the interests of mankind, often without the least bit of concern for the animals who forfeit their lives in exchange for medical, cosmetic and household product advancements. Classical ethics theorists Emile Durkheim and Immanual Kant may have had similar viewpoints on some issues, but when it came to concerns over the ethical fortitude of animal experimentation, the writer discusses how Durkheim would have befriended the animals' plight long before Kant would have, who adopted a utilitarian concept. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Relationship Between Patient and Doctor and the Process of Building Trust

    A 10 page proposal for a qualitative research work. There have been relatively limited efforts at defining and studying the relationship of trust between physician and patient that not only is desirable, but some believe is critical for attaining the best patient outcomes. Some have attempted to treat the issue as a sociological, rather than a medical, discipline, but then lost the point of the sociological study in layers of statistical analysis. This paper proposes using focus group discussions to identify specific physician behaviors that contribute to building patient trust, using groups of diverse physical as well as ethnic makeup. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Electrical Stimulation For Chronic, Non-healing Wounds Literature Review

    Chronic wound care is considerably more difficult to manage than it seems; a single ulcer or open sore can have a tremendous impact upon an individual's personal and professional life to the point of disrupting it entirely. From high health care costs to job loss to compromised quality of life, what may otherwise seem to laypeople as an innocuous medical issue is in truth quite impacting upon the patient's entire life, not the least of which includes impaired mobility, chronic pain and social isolation (Ly & Poole-Warren (2008). Utilizing the ever-growing technological options for this particular problem has rendered some benefit to accelerated wound care, however, the speed with which such methods as electrical fields like POSiFECT and Dermapulse depends upon the severity of the wound. the delayed and sometimes ineffective nature of conventional wound treatment has rendered the need for more advanced options that while not perfect are showing great promise as a viable and better alternative.

  • Possible Barriers for MSN Pursuit by Registered Nurses

    17 pages in length. Furthering one's education within the nursing field is advantageous to both the patient and the nurse; however, there are situations where attaining this higher education is fraught with perceived barriers. In the instance of registered nurses considering returning to school for a Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN), the perceived barriers include issues directly related to time, money and confidence. How these RNs attempt to overcome the perceived barriers inherently associated with attaining an MSN is paramount to the need for better-educated nurses throughout the industry. Several issues are raised when research seeks to find and address the perceived barriers of registered nurses considering returning to school for an MSN, not the least of which include the impact upon the severe nursing shortage, distance learning, decreased costs associated with higher education, as well as compressing the overall time required to attain the degree.

  • Family Violence and Nursing Intervention

    A 9 page paper discussing issues affecting nurses’ ability to intervene in domestic violence issues. As those who are trained in physical needs and spend the greatest amount of time in direct contact with patients, nurses occupy perhaps the best associated position from which to intervene in domestic violence.

There still is a fine ethical line in that nurses cannot blatantly violate confidentiality. Nurses can, however, become proficient at collecting samples, taking notes and asking the right questions of the right people, always keeping the good of the patient as the uppermost goal. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Discrimination Because of Age

    5 pages in length. Age discrimination has become more than a minor inconvenience throughout the twentieth century; indeed, the issue has become such a hot potato within the workplace that laws have been forced into existence as a means by which to address the problem.

  • War and Censorship of the Press

    7 pages in length.

No bibliography.

  • 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.

  • Personal Conflict, Neutrality, and The Mediation Process

    6 pages in length. A significant issue at hand within any given group where interaction and decision-making are essential components is that of interpersonal conflict. Indeed, it is unreasonable to believe that a collection of independent thinkers would not -- at some time or another -- be faced with discord. An effective leader recognizes when these situations arise and extinguishes them with the help of a mediator long before they are allowed to fester. However, there are those leaders who are intimidated by issues of conflict and choose to look the other way, ultimately creating an ever-hostile atmosphere where it is most unnecessary. The group’s success hinges on its members’ ability to work as a team, which means employing a neutral individual who is responsible for mediating any and all conflicts. The writer discusses neutrality in mediation. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Rural Community Fire Prevention and Master Planning

    6 pages in length. There was a time when small rural communities dominated the landscape, with individual houses dotted all throughout the inside and outskirts of town.

  • Career Objectives and the Impact of Changing Work Requirements

    5 pages in length. Determining one's future career endeavors is no longer as easy as merely deciding what path would like to pursue. In these contemporary times, there are a number of variables that help -- and also hinder -- a person's ultimate career choice, particularly with regard to issues from one's past. The present and future also hold other considerations that must be addressed when attempting to discern which direction to head for career fulfillment. Another primary factor in determining a career path is whether or not the chosen vocation will provide sufficient mental and physical stimulation for years to come. To put forth considerable time, effort and money into obtaining a particular career goal, only to find that it was not truly the correct path to follow, is an issue that must be given significant consideration.

  • Achievements of Roger Wolcott Sperry

    15 pages in length.

  • Women and Telecommunications II

Various other relevant ethical issues are discussed and it is ultimately concluded that women have very little to gain in today's workplace. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • 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.

Instrumental to the overall conquest of independence was the coupling of social realities and intellectual developments, as well as issues surrounding the economic and political stability of Spain and Portugal. While many of the motivating factors for freedom were the result of external forces, there were also some internal elements that helped to assist the eventual move toward Latin American independence. The writer discusses Latin America's self-independence. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Comparing Characters in Ghosts and Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen

    5 pages in length. Henrik Ibsen's talent for delving deeply into social composition is characteristically synonymous with the level of cultural implication the author incorporates into his works. 'Hedda Gabler' and 'Ghosts' are but two selections of Ibsen's writing that represent how a patriarchal society helps to eat away at the female characters' very existence. Caught within the never-ending web of gender bias, both Hedda and Mrs. Alving are forced to proceed with their lives as though they were merely extensions of other's, uneasily precluded from advancing their own interests. Also intertwined within the frame work of 'Hedda Gabler' and 'Ghosts' stands the issues of self-worth and the deflated value that each woman places upon her own importance as a result of male dominance. The writer compares and contrasts the characters of Hedda and Mrs. Alving. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Memory's Precategorical and Categorical Distinctions

    Many theories have been proposed to explain the cognitive development of the human mind and the distinctions between the stages of development as well as the types of processing and modes of perception.

In addition, the researcher also provides an overview of studies that could be conducted to evaluate this theory and to assist in clarifying this issue. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Though the most common opinion is that there is nothing 'wrong' with living together either instead of, or before marriage, there is increasing evidence that there is indeed something 'wrong' with it, to the extent that it is listed as a risk factor against the success of subsequent marriage between the same partners. Bibliography lists 5 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.

These documents indicate that how the natural world is perceived and conceptualized within the boundaries of the human imagination is crucial to human interaction with the natural world. Bibliography lists 12 sources taken from this 1 text.

  • Ethics and Human Resource Management

    6 pages in length. Because society is fundamentally based upon performance and profit, it is not unusual to find that it is necessary to impart a sense of corporate social responsibility with regard to contemporary commerce. The ethical approaches of purpose, principle and consequence are integral components of business social performance; itemizing these contributions finds one incorporating the interests of ethics and morality within the corporate structure, essential concepts that are often absent from a Human Resources standpoint. It is important for the student to realize that the very issues of corporate social responsibility should rightly exist within every company's infrastructure; however, one can readily realize that social integrity is not something that is often at the forefront of modern day Human Resource Management. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Animal Testing In Cosmetic Labs

    8 pages in length. Human vanity - a most distasteful characteristic of mankind - is only surpassed in its enormity by the level of insensitivity required to inflict painful "safety" tests on defenseless animals to make sure cosmetic products are not dangerous for people to use. The irony of such reality is quite telling, inasmuch as man - who holds the position of steward over the animal kingdom - is meant to protect and oversee rather than maim and torture. Add to this the fact that researchers continue to use archaic methods for cosmetic testing when viable alternatives to live animal usage currently exists illustrates how some of the human race must harbor latent power issues if they choose to continue inflicting such unnecessary suffering. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

These arguments state that (1) animal testing is often simply an entrenched procedure, which is continued due to tradition and law, rather than its efficacy; (2) successful alternative methods for testing have been discovered, which makes it logical to assume that further alternatives could be formulated; (3) animal testing is expensive as compared to alternative methods; (4) alternative methods are produce faster results, and (5) animal testing is cruel and, therefore, immoral.

  • The Entertainment Industry and Animal Cruelty

    11 pages in length. Animals provide a significant supply of goods for human beings, not the least of which supports man's entertainment needs. However, in spite of all the various ways animals serve mankind, there has historically been little thought given to their own right to existence, having always been considered little more than a disposable commodity. Whether it is the issue of hunting, circuses, zoos or racing, animals have long provided -- and will likely continue to provide -- humanity with some of its most basic requirements, all at the cost of the animal's own life. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Cybercrime, Privacy, and Security

    A 14 page paper. Cybercrime is increasing every year. The costs are staggering, as much as hundreds of millions of dollars each year plus the cost to human dignity and morale. The crooks have had more tools to use than our law enforcement agencies and law enforcement has been consistently thwarted in their attempts to gain authority to use the kinds of programs and strategies that could result in capturing the criminals. That changed on September 11. The Attack on America woke up the public and the Congress and resulted in a number of new laws that give expanded authority to specific agencies to "listen" in on the Internet. This essay discusses Cybercrime and then, the issue of security versus privacy. The writer takes the position that more security is worth less privacy. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Origen/Early Christian Exegete

    A 6 page essay that examines the writing of Origen, an early Christian scholar and theologian, who the writer argues is remarkably relevant to the way in which many modern Christians interpret the Bible. It is interesting that this second century exegete would undoubtedly take issue with fundamentalist Christians who insist that a literal interpretation of scripture is the only legitimate viewpoint. While certainly as a Church Father, Origen's theological positions are conservative in nature, his exegesis indicates Origen's objections to scriptural interpretation that focused on what he considered to be insignificant or trivial detail in favor of digging deeper and discerning the hidden spiritual truths scriptural writers were trying to convey. No bibliography is offered.

  • Psychology and Self Esteem in Child Development

    10 pages in length. The psychological twists and turns that children face in their maturation years can be both thrilling and traumatic at the same time. In her book entitled "The Magic Years : Understanding and Handling the Problems of Early Childhood," Selma Fraiberg's approach to first recognizing and then addressing these stressful yet magical years is quite refreshing from a reader's perspective.

  • The Environmental Writer Alice Walker

    15 pages in length. When one thinks of an environmental writer, the first thing that comes to mind is one whose prose sing the praises of trees, animals, the ocean along with the rest of the natural world. While that is the case in many instances of environmental writing, there is also another facet of this particular literary approach that addresses the environmental capacity of social issues, not the least of which includes racial and gender injustice. Alice Walker, considered to be one of the most identifiable of all environmental writers, gleans her environmental prose from a combination of personal experience and historical circumstances that have served to compromise the very nature of equitable existence between and among the races. Moreover, the way in which she employs a certain type of character to compensate for this gross lack of environmental equity speaks to the author's intrinsic desire to revise the entire premise of racial relations much the same way a writer submits revisions to a literary work-in-progress. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Nicaragua State Analysis

    11 pages in length. Nicaragua, which borders the Caribbean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean, has long struggled to obtain its own significant notion of existence, a quest that has been fraught with revolution, political upheaval and economic turmoil. The concepts found in relation to Nicaragua's revolution are based upon the fundamental aspects of economics, politics and history; without these integral elements, such astute determinations with regard to humanity's struggles for democracy and socialism would not have been achieved. By addressing relevant issues from both the past and present, geopolitical historians are able to formulate impressions of Nicaragua's future that prove revolutionary. Analyzing the manner by which the state has overcome such overwhelming challenges leads the student to examine specific components of its composition, not the least of which include demographic considerations, economy, government and military. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Homosexuality and Family Acceptance

    A 6 page essay/research paper that looks at Gloria Feliciano's play "Between Blessings," which is a poignant account of a twenty-eight year old Puerto Rican son, Diego, finally telling his proud, macho, traditionalist father that he is gay. In this work, Feliciano's use of language and dramatic devices serves to expand the scope of the play beyond the immediate domestic situation between father and son and, in so doing, brings up issues of culture and religiosity, specifically the stand of the Roman Catholic Church on homosexuality. This factor of the play is achieved by framing the confrontation between Diego and his father within scenes that feature a family friend, Father David, a priest who is also homosexual. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Imogene King: Theory Of Goal Attainment

    6 pages in length. An individual's physical and/or emotional recovery is not left to happenstance or the sole responsibility of nurse practitioners; rather, convalescence comes from the proactive efforts of both patient and caregiver, a synergistic interchange that thrives because of equal output. Imogene King fully appreciated the value of patient involvement with regard to healing process and shared this vision through her theory of goal attainment. The extent to which personal goal setting empowers the patient to reach individual milestones of progress is both grand and far-reaching; to remove or withhold this internal power because of political or economic issues only serves to delay the healing process when the patient loses the ability to proactively target specific recovery goals. The impact such a concept as King's has made upon the nursing profession illustrates how the industry as a whole believes patients oftentimes have a greater influence over their journey back to health than anyone else does; additionally, King's perspective was instrumental in facilitating theoretical approaches overall. Bibliography lists 7 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.

  • Jewish History and Spain's 'Golden Age'

    7 pages in length.

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.
