John Davison Rockefeller has been accused by many as being a Robber Baron over the past century. He created the most powerful corporation the United States had ever seen: The Standard Oil Company. He began Standard Oil in 1865 and by 1881, it was comprised of more than forty other companies. In 1882 Rockefeller created the Standard Oil Trusts, and his company had become the most efficient corporation, producing the highest quality products as well as charging the lowest prices. Unlike Jay Gould, who used the judicial system to acquire companies, make a profit, and then leave that company in bankruptcy, Rockefeller was philanthropic in his endeavors, incorporating his acquired companies into ...

Jungle - 375 words
The Jungle, written by Upton Sinclair in 1905, the author supports Socialism over Capitalism and used the struggle to keep the house in order to portray the evils of Capitalism on the family and the society in General. The struggle to buy the house and to try keeping it is a symbol of unity in the family represented by the house, which they battle against Capitalism to try to keep it. It takes virtually all their money to get the house, and it will take almost all to keep it. Jurgis worked in Durhams earning about one dollar and nineteen cents a day. The rest of the family worked in other similar jobs to support each other and the house. The industries and bosses who ran them took their toll ...

Tobacco Industry - 1,146 words
Tobacco has been used for enjoyment for thousands of years. Native Americans are believed to be the first to use tobacco. Over the years the use of tobacco has become so widespread that is can be found in nearly every country. The tobacco industries have provided a very harmful product to the public. The US Government should regulate the tobacco industry because tobacco is hazardous to the American public and because they have conducted their business practices in an unethical and immoral fashion. The tobacco industries argue that they have their legal rights and they have only been providing a product enjoyed by millions of Americans for years. Christopher Proctor, of British American Tobac ...

Speech Health Care - 1,880 words
Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to believe the United States should have a health care insurance program, which eliminates private health insurance. Thesis: The United States needs a national health care insurance program because the development of private health care insurance and the lack of a national plan throughout history have lead to a deficiency in proper health care for many Americans. In the United States costs for health care are being shifted to individuals instead of the government. As professor Allen Jedlicka of UNI states, "The United States is one of the only first world countries that does not have a national health care plan." The United States needs a national he ...

Tobacco - 344 words
How is it possible for something that kills so many people to be legal in a country that boasts the supreme protection of its citizens? Tobacco is literally destroying thousands of lives everyday, and all attempts toward putting the tobacco problem to an end have been unsuccessful. Something must be done effectively to stop the rapid growth of tobacco abusers and victims. In the following paragraphs, I will provide strong points of support which ultimately favor the illegalization of tobacco in the U.S. I will first start with the lighter side of the problem, which is the economic loss the individuals Curiosity may arise from the statement of economic loss being the lighter side of the probl ...

Seniors And The Internet - 1,030 words
Introduction Think about Seniors in Cyberspace...what comes into your mind? Perhaps the words, yeah, right? If so, you are not alone. Many people, including the elderly themselves, believe that seniors are technophobics, defined as those who can't even program their VCRs, much less use a computer or even begin to understand how to navigate the World Wide Web. However, times are changing. More and more elderly people are using the Internet. In fact, they are the fastest growing Internet user group (Sorenson 1997). There are many different reasons for the rapid expansion of this group, as I will discuss later in this paper. But one that seemed to be extremely prevalent was to keep in touch wit ...

Use Anti-Harassment to Shelter Yourself from Suits In the magazine article Use Anti-Harassment to Shelter yourself from Suit (HR Magazine, 1999), Majorie A. Johnson discusses the importance of training supervisors and employees on dealing with and preventing sexual harassment and other forms of harassment in the workplace. The article begins with references to recent U.S Supreme Court rulings on liability for punitive damages under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These rulings affect lawsuits that are filed against companies for sexual harassment. In the past companies were automatically liable for sexual harassment by their supervisors when it resulted in tangible harm to the emp ...

Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned - 620 words
Running Head: ILLUSTRATION OF A PENNY SAVED This paper is an illustration of the phrase A Penny Saved is A Penny Earned. The paper has been critiqued by several of my peers in order to present a finished copy to the instructor. Penny pinchers have been around since the first time money was used. This was a frequent saying in the household where I grew up. Ever since I can remember, my grandmother used this phrase whenever she gave me any money. The idea behind it was that I would save the money and someday be able to use it for something I really needed as opposed to buying the candy and toys I was going to spend it on. The thought of me spending the money foolishly instead of saving it, she ...

Genetic Engineering - 1,921 words
Science is a creature that continues to evolve at an ever-increasing rate. The transformation from tree shrew, to ape, to human far exceeds the time for the transformation time from an analytical machine, to a calculator, to a computer. However, science, in the past, has always remained distant. Science has allowed advances in production, transportation, and even entertainment; but never in history will science have an affect on our lives, as genetic engineering will undoubtedly do. For the last decade, science has made vast improvements in genetics, monitored by the Human Genome Project. The goal of this organization is to identify and understand the entire genetic constitution. "They have ...

... th the integration of each individual culture that exists in various groups. Three methods can facilitate this. The assimilation process is the act of adopting a set of values that is most prominent in the organization. In this process, one takes on the values and norms of another culture, and leaves their own behind. The pluralism process consists of adopting values and norms from each other. The third process, cultural separatism, exists with very little adaptation by either side (Cox, Jr. 353-366).

The Electronic Scarecrow is designed to rid gardens of pesky animals, which damage flowers or crops. It can deter animals from mice and cats to deer and other large animals. I have chosen to do this for my study because I have read many articles in The Mirror that say that people are fed up with animals eating their flowers and crops. So I decided to develop a scarecrow type device that will deter any intruding animal whilst also being aesthetically pleasing to the public. I have decided that my company will develop custom scarecrows because not everybody would like a traditional scarecrow anyway so I decided it would be fun to produce a custom made scarecrow. The consumers can have it model ...

Health Insurance In The U.s. - 1,265 words
... 002, 11.7 percent of all children in the United States were uninsured (Bergman). These children, who are notoriously rambunctious and susceptible to injuries and germs, are among the large group of uninsured Americans. What is perhaps most upsetting about this statistic is that they are children, and they have no control over their lack of insurance. It could be said that these are some of the citizens who need coverage the most. However, if their parents cannot afford it for themselves, how will they get this safety for their children? There are some states that offer coverage programs to children of uninsured parents. Studies have shown, however, that states that expanded Medicaid to c ...

Animal Testing In The Cosmetic Industry - 1,044 words
Dr. Frank Meehan picked up Charlie, the frail brown monkey and placed him into what would soon be his coffin. Charlie was screaming hysterically almost knowing that his time had come in the small research laboratory for a common cleaner product. Charlie had seen many of the other animals die the same agonizing death that he envisioned himself to be receiving soon. What would it be this time? Pumping the cleaner into his stomach or pouring it directly on his skin to study the burning of tissue? Perhaps it will be dripped into his eyes to test the blinding effects. All Charlie knew was that he was going to be dying a slow and painful death just like all the other animals in the lab. This is ju ...

Mainstream advertising does not impact a specific target market but rather generalizes every subgroup to encompass the entire market. Secondly, proper understanding, use and translation of material into Spanish is critically important. Finally, understanding that the Hispanic community, while part of mainstream society, isn't necessarily best reached through mainstream messages. (1987) At its current pace, the Hispanic community will become the dominant minority in the United States within fifteen years and generational segmentation will continue to grow in the coming decades.
