Censoring The Free Press - 1,059 words
Throughout the history of the United States of America, the Constitution has always been put to the test. The first amendment, which guarantees freedom of speech and the press, comes from William Blackstone of England who wrote, "The liberty of the press is indeed essential to the nature of a free state, but this consists in laying no previous restraint upon publications, and not from censure . . . when published" (qtd. in Bain, par. 22). The founders of this great country originally created the first amendment to enable colonists to speak out against the British. The press in the 17th century was accurate and informative with little competition among journalists, but today in the 21st centu ...

Models For Predicting Corporate Financial Distress - 2,245 words
... ntly, logit analysis has been compared to a more advanced analytical tool, neural networks. Research has found that the approaches perform similarly and should be used in combination (Altman, Marco, and Varetto 1994). Based on multiple discriminate analysis (MDA), the model predicts a company's financial health based on a discriminant function of the form: Z=0.012X1+0.014X2+0.033X3+0.006X4+0.999X5 X3=earnings before interest and taxes/total assets X4=market value of equity/book value of total liabilities The Z-Score model (developed in 1968) was based on a sample composed of 66 manufacturing companies with 33 firms in each of two matched-pair groups. The bankruptcy group consisted of com ...

Explanation of the theoretical concept The theoretical concept of Human resource management is based around the strategy of initiating the composition and implementation of working practices that, as well as being conducive to promoting the organisations business objectives, also seeks to plan in a strategic manner for issues that may arise to affect the business. As opposed to being an agent that reacts to internal and external changes after the fact, this is a defining characteristic that separates it from the concept of personnel management. Human resource management can also encompass the development and fostering of an appropriate culture within the organisation and, ideally, examples o ...

What Really Happened - 1,660 words
When someone views this picture for the first time there is usually a feeling of shock at what they see. This feeling is clearly understandable if you are just shown the picture by itself with no caption or background information. It is the lack of facts and truths that have caused this very photograph to be the center of so much controversy and debate. When this photo was taken from a video clip filmed at the bombing of Trang Bang in June of 1972 the correct version of the story was reported. Since then and in other journalist's stories the truth has become distorted over time and this photo has become an icon for the anti-war movement. Although this photo actually had very little impact on ...

From the moment she stepped foot outside, Princess Diana of Whales had camera lenses and microphones pushed in her face. She was constantly pursued and for this reason she sometimes had to hide or disguise herself in order to avoid the unyielding persistence and constant harassment of the press. Eugene Robinson, a journalist in England said, "For the tabloids, day in and day out, no story is bigger than the royal family. All the tabloids employ royal-watching reporters, some of whom have become celebrities in their own right. The story of Princess Diana of Whales was the biggest story Princess Diana could not even stay out of the public eye when she was behind the walls of the royal estate. ...

Stephen Lacy, acting director of Michigan State University's School of Journalism in East Lansing said through the coverage of the Kennedy tragedy, he saw, "a bigger disconnect between the press and the public. It was a bit of overkill, especially on television." He went on to say that "The media have not quite realized that overplaying does not help their credibility, but continues to show examples of the news industry exploiting a tragedy in a push to stem a 20-year slide in ratings, readers, and credibility ...

Recognizing that this was no time for constitutional purism, the president yielded to his friends, while strict constructionist arguments were taken up ineffectually by the New England Federalists. Nearly everybody else enthusiastically approved of the acquisition. In May 1801 the Pasha of the piratical state of Tripoli, dissatisfied with his tribute, declared war on the United States.

Sierra Leone - 1,680 words
The British established a colony at Freetown in 1787 for slaves returning to Africa from Great Britain and the United States and for slaves rescued from shipwrecks. The land of original settlement, where the city later developed, was purchased from local chiefs. The Sierra Leone Company, formed in 1791, administered the settlement until 1808, when it became a crown colony. Britain set up a protectorate over the hinterland of Freetown in 1896. The British were relatively nice towards the people of Sierra Leone. While they provided what they could for the colony, they also illegally smuggled the nations diamonds to other countries. The first elections for the legislative council were held unde ...

Because of the consistency of Abercrombie's communication messages, Abercrombie's advisements and promotions are easily identified. Furthermore, the opposition to Abercrombie's communications strategy and associated materials has actually enhanced the effectiveness of Abercrombie's marketing communications. Abercrombie has come to be seen as more exclusive and cool because of the rebellion and controversy. Despite Abercrombie's well-integrated and highly publicized marketing campaign, Abercrombie may reconsider the magazines in which it advertises. For example, the av ...

Patti Smith - 1,883 words
Born in Chicago and raised in Woodbury, New Jersey, just across the state line from Philadelphia, Patti's mother, Beverly, was a jazz singer cum waitress. Her father, Grant, worked at the Honeywell plant; she was the oldest of four siblings: her sisters Linda and Kimberly (the latter plays mandolin on Gone Again's "Ravens,"), and brother Todd. Unable to find her place in high school society, she took refuge in the images of Rimbaud, Bob Dylan, James Brown, and the Rolling Stones. Dropping out of Glassboro State Teacher's College, she headed for the bright -lights-big-city of New York. When she arrived in town, she met an art student named Robert Mapplethorpe and they moved in together. Patti ...

Robeson, alongside Robinson, stated (something to the effect) that, it would be unthinkable for black Americans to fight in a war against Russia because blacks were treated better in Russia than they were in the United States (Scott 227). In retaliation, the House Un-American Activities Committee assembled hearings in which they subpoenaed other prominent African Americans to testify about Robesons statement. The first one they called was Jackie Robinson. Not eager to testify, but knowing full well that refusing to cooperate with the HUAC might result in the termination of his athletic career, Jackie, with encouragement by the Dodger organization, agree ...

The Progression Of Female Athletes - 1,367 words
Women throughout history have made extreme progress in expanding their rights and freedoms. They have also made it a point to prove that they are as equal as men through their careers, lives, and their athletic abilities. Women have come a long way in becoming well- rounded athletes, but the discrimination is still present. Although they have substantiated themselves in many ways, women are still viewed as inferior to men, especially as athletes. Women have always participated in extracurricular activities, and some even in sports. However, because women were the members in the households who cooked, cleaned, and took care of the family, they were limited to their activities. Women were to b ...

Middle East - 1,966 words
In December 1985, the Canadian press reported the death by suicide of hundreds of field mice in the Middle East. In an apparently instinctive reaction to a problem of over-population, the mice wilfully plunged to their doom off the cliffs of the Golan Heights. This bizarre story was the subject not only of straight news coverage in the Canadian press, but also of an editorial in the Globe and Mail on December 20. On November 1, 1985, the Globe and Mail also ran a photograph of a visiting Roman Catholic priest from Brazil, saying prayers on the banks of the Jordan River at the site where Christ is said to have been baptized. Standing alertly near the priest was an Israeli soldier with a rifle ...

McNeil shows us how teachers are affected in ways that are extremely difficult to observe.12 The teachers she presents to us are bright, intelligent professionals with a great deal of expertise in their areas. McNeils question when she began her project was why course content so often is shallow, simplistic, and disconnected from authentic scholarship. The common hypothesis is that teachers are the least intellectually sophisticated of the professionals (if they are professionals at all). Since they have relatively low GRE scores and GPAs as undergraduates, it is often suggested that teachers do not know th ...
