Values Clarification - 1,631 words
The corruption of Americas youth is a popular topic today in the media, among lawmakers, and with concerned parents. Often the good old days of generations past are looked upon with longing because of their simpler ways. Decades ago the largest problems in schools were talking out in class, not paying attention, and forgetting to do homework. Todays problems are violence, teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse, and delinquency in general. Everyone believes these issues are a result of something different: bad home lives, lack of religious ideals, the media, the wrong education or no education at all. Throughout the years, moral education has been looked to as both an answer and cause. School ...

Hemingways Man - 1,451 words
Hemingway's exploration of Man in The Sun Also Rises 'It's really an awfully simple operation, Jig,' the man said. 'It's not really an operation at all.' Much of Hemingway's body of work grows from issues of male morality. In his concise, "Hills Like White Elephants," a couple discusses getting an abortion while waiting for a train in a Spanish rail station bar. Years before Roe v. Wade, before the issues of abortion rights, mothers' rights, and unborn children's rights splashed across the American mass consciousness, Ernest Hemingway assessed the effects of abortion on a relationship, and, more specifically, he examined a man's role in determining the necessity of the procedure and its impa ...

Meuseargonne Offensive - 1,269 words
Even as Pershing had been preparing and launching this first big American attack, Foch's original plan had been growing by bounds. No longer was the offensive to be confined to a British strike along the Somme and an American drive on Mzires. The new plan also included a Belgian-British-French attack along the Lys and French attacks in between British and Americans. It was to be a grand assault all along the frontsaid Foch: "Tout le monde la bataille!". The aim was to cut the enemy's rail line at Mzires and Aulnoye, the latter in front of the British, and thereby force the Germans to retire inside their frontier before winter set in. For the offensive Foch had 220 divisions160 in line, 60 i ...

Contract Law - 1,185 words
England's contract law is consisted of several laws and they can not be written or at least explained in a student's assignment, which is consisted of 1000 words. Despite that I will try to outline the main points of the contact law and explain briefly what each means. On the second point I will explain the little difference between the English contact law with the equivalent contract law of my home country which is Cyprus. I wrote "little differences " because, Cyprus is following the English system concerning laws. There are three basic essentials to the creation of contract which will be recognised and enforced by the courts. These are: contractual intention, agreement and consideration. ...

Justice Served - 1,209 words
What is the relation of the state to the individual? Should obedience be paid to the will of the state, or to the justice with which it conflicts? If loyalty is required, is it conditional; necessary only part of the time? And, given that the state and the individual will inevitably disagree on some issues, who suffers in the end? Through their writings, Plato and Sophocles outline two sides of this issue. In Euthyphro, The Apology, and Crito Plato expresses a view of the state as flawed but necessary, never straying from the logical analysis performed by his main character, Socrates. However, in Antigone, Sophocles offers a tragic, gut-wrenching story that also looks seriously at the same i ...

Descartes Vs Hume - 1,641 words
Exploring the Epistemologys of Rene Descartes and David Hume Beginning in the 17th century, traditional ideas were being questioned by the new beginnings of science. Although many of the accomplishments during this scientific revolution were in astronomy and mechanics, very important advances along the whole borders of knowledge were also taking place. The revival of skepticism, brought about by these new concepts, had many philosophers seeking answers to questions such as: Do we know anything at all, and do the sciences give us knowledge of reality? Rene Descartes, whom many consider to be the father of modern philosophy, sought to kill skepticism for good. He gave his Cartesian quest for c ...

Why A Planner Is Important - 1,063 words
To: City Council of Town, State Re: Adding a Town Planner to Your Staff Planning in any town is an important part of the growth, development and sustainability of the citizens and businesses in that town. I believe that your town council could greatly benefit from adding a planner to your staff. Planning suggests a systematic attempt to shape the future. It attempts to link scientific and technical knowledge to actions in the public domain, and processes of societal guidance and of social transformation. Planning entails making decisions and informing actions in ways that are socially rational. Planning serves a public or general purpose, such as ensuring the stability and growth of the econ ...

C S Lewis And Natural Law - 2,281 words
THE HUMAN RACE is haunted by the idea of doing whatis right. In the first five chapters of Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewisdiscusses the fact that people are always referring to some standard ofbehavior that they expect other people to know about. People are alwaysdefending themselves by arguing that what they have been doing does notreally go against that standard, or that they have some special excuse forviolating it. What they have in mind is a law of fair play or a rule of decent behavior.Different people use different labels for this law--traditional moralityor the Moral Law, the knowledge of right and wrong, or Virtue, or the Way.We choose to call it the Natural Law.

This act of balance may also lead to a positive student-student discussion which will promote higher levels of cognition and more student interaction because of a volunteers desire to add or reflect on another students response. That opportunity in the classroom would be optimum for total class learning. Through observation, other students will be actively engaged in the discussion as well. This leads to my next topic of building upon other students responses. Often, a response will be somewhat correct, but not cover all the information intended. Or, in another example, some students may be anxious and unable to form a clear response, instead offering a disjointed collection of inf ...

Throughout history, men and women have struggled to understand each other. Society has struggled to meld their complex differences while embracing the wonder of individuality. Biologist attempt to explain why men and women are different yet comes from the very similar genetic make-up. Psychologists have made grand strides in understanding how the mind works in the dynamics of relationships between men and women. And in a society that is governed by economics, the realm of social status and money can often determine whom one will couple with. Gender relationships are currently defined in American society by historical classifications. Historical representations of gender roles have been carri ...

Group Climate And Achieving Goals - 1,213 words
The climate in a group is very important. It greatly influences the outcome of the situation and the outcome of the problem. The amount of support, the type of messages, and the degree of cohesiveness are the defining factors which determine the climate of the group. The film Waking Ned Devine shows all these factors throughout the movie, especially in the church scene. A defensive climate evolves when a member of the group focuses more on his own needs rather than on those of the group. This person is primarily concerned with his own benefit, even at the his groups cost (Cartwright & Zander, 1960). This type of climate appears when the person attacks another person instead of the issue, tri ...

Being a cadet in Campbell Battalion has been a very rewarding experience but there are a few things that I would change. I think that the first thing I would do is to devise a more calibrated evaluation system like an ARTEP style system. We would still do blue cards but this would help evaluators in the evaluating process as well as give cadets a standard for training. The second thing I would do is to allow the less experienced cadets the chance to lead more often in military labs. Last year I thought this was not done enough. The last thing I would change would be to have remedial PT sessions to help cadets to strengthen themselves in their weak PT testing areas. These would be scheduled a ...

Nike - 917 words
Nike Student Monitoring Report: Korea March 7th and March 10th, I visited four factories, three in Seoul, Korea and one in Pusan, Korea. The sizes of the factories ranged from 35 to 100 workers, and women above the age of 35 made up the majority of the factories' laborers. At each of the factories, two PriceWaterhouse Coopers (PWC) employees from Korea audited the factories while I observed. These audits consisted of inspecting the factories, reviewing time sheets and cards, and interviewing 25 factory workers. The two PWC employees divided the work, so that one interviewed the workers and the other reviewed paperwork verifying employees' age, payroll, and compensation. Overall, I had a posi ...

Natural Law - 1,224 words
Alasdair MacIntyre, in his .. has argued forcefully that the West has lost whatever common ethical grammar it once possessed. In the wake of this collapse, moral philosophers and theologians have offered a variety of proposals to resurrect ethics. Moral theologians insist that ethics be rooted in theological truth, though there are wide differences about what this means. On the one side, Stanley Hauerwas has encouraged Christians to abandon misleading universalisms and live out of their particular tradition and story. Christianitys answer to relativism, Hauerwas argues, is a Christian community arguing its moral convictions on explicitly Christian, indeed Biblical grounds. I acknowledge the ...

... arch, yet the well-defined methodological component of the discipline. The steps involved are establishing rapport in a new community, learning to act so that people go about their business as usual, and removing oneself from the everyday cultural immersion in order to intellectualize what one has learned, to put it into perspective, and write about it accordingly. There is a fine line between participant observation and field research, although the results of both show distinct differences. Bernard proposes to think of participant observation independently of time. He further states that it is the only method that can truly yield understanding of social change, through very long-term pa ...
