Multiregionalism Vs Out Of Africa - 1,033 words
Anthropologists today are debating two sides to the story of the evolution of the modern human Homosapian sapian. The sides agree on two different theories called the Out of Africa theory and the Multiregional (or Candelabra) theory. The debate, which some may call a slanderous argument, is far from being resolved on either side. Both evolutionist sides have strong evidence, however, this evidence does have its flaws and is not accurate enough to prove one side over another. However, the arguments for the Out of Africa theory seem to be flawed far more than those of the Multiregional theory. The Multiregional theory states that the hominid H. erectus. Migrated out of Africa through the north ...

Effects Of Free Agency In Sports - 1,866 words
Professional baseball is in a state of turmoil. While the National Basketball Association and the National Football League are prospering, America's "favorite" pastime is faltering. It is no coincidence that this downward spiral began in 1976. That year the court decided in favor of Andy Messersmith and Dave McNally, two pitchers fighting for their own free agency (Burns and Ward, Art. 10). Free agency grants players the ability to choose what team they want to play for once their contract expires. Prior to this case players were confined to stay with their original team. They only changed teams if they were traded (Worsnop, Art. 83). Once Messersmith and McNally won their case, twenty-four ...

Reaction Paper # 3 is based on the Article, Labor Economics and Labor Relations, by Loyd Reynolds, Stanley Masters, & Colletta Moser. This article offers a number of economical viewpoints, which although justifiable and scientifically proven, are still subject to debate. The first disagreeable point made by the authors was their belief that an employee seeks an overall employment package, apart from wage, in determining their future employer. According to the article, the employee does not seek the highest wage available in their particular market. Instead, they search for the job that will offer the greatest net advantage such as fringe benefits and a pleasant working environment. This is n ...
