In Charles Handy's 2002 article, What's a Business For?, he essentially argues, like McMurtry, for a social economy built from businesses that see themselves as communities with a higher purpose (Handy, 2002; McMurtry). McMurtry defines a social economy as one in which "economic activity is neither controlled directly by the state nor by the profit logic of the market, activity that prioritizes the social well-being of communities and marginalized individuals over partisan political directives or individual gain" (McMurtry).

Handy has come to his conclusion -- favoring a social economy -- based on the recent decline of the American economy and demise of the capitalist corporate image (Handy, 2002). As Handy notes, there are rules and laws in a market economy, but even those rules and laws depend upon some basic trust…… [Read More]

RECIPE WRITING

For many years, recipes have been handed down through generations, so that the great cooking of beloved family members can be preserved and shared throughout time. We come to anticipate certain dishes on holidays and others on special occasions through the year based, on these recipes. In addition, we find new and tasty recipes every day online, at a friend's, in a magazine and in cookbooks. Perhaps the most exciting recipe, however, is the one that is recently invented. One who cooks up a new dish that has not been tried creates a recipe never before seen.

The right to get justice and to self-determine their politico-social life is the main issues that political philosophy is confronted with (Kabeer, 2002).

Danielle Ofri's "Living Will" -- response essay

Danielle Ofri's "Living Will" deals with the idea of hospice care attitudes in the situation of individuals who are terminally ill and who lost all will to live. Ofri apparently wants to provide her readers with the chance to get a more complex understanding of these people in order to determine whether or not society is right in promoting life in situations when it is pointless. The writer relates to a patient called Wilbur Reston with the purpose of exemplifying a situation when a person who has very little chances to survive is kept alive artificially. The fact that society pays a significant amount of money to keep such people alive is certainly intriguing.

Ofri is in charge of treating Wilbur and her job as a doctor makes it mandatory for her to…… [Read More]

Fortune 500 Company: Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart is known as a "super store" and a place to engage in one-stop shopping for the home and individual. For example, the store sells groceries and pet supplies, health and beauty items, crafts and school supplies, home repair tools and products, electronics, furniture for the home and yard, health and beauty supplies and has an in-store pharmacy, among many other products. However, the perspective of Sam Walton might be slightly different. Sam Walton might feel as though the goal and overall objective of Wal-Mart is to give the customer exactly what they want. As Walton said, "The secret of successful retailing is to give your customers what they want. And really, if you think about it from your point-of-view as a customer, you want everything: a wide assortment of good-quality merchandise; the lowest possible prices; guaranteed satisfaction with what you buy; friendly, knowledgeable service; convenient…… [Read More]

(Snyder & Deono quoted in Kjeldal 2003, Introduction section, ¶ 6).

The results from the study Kjeldal (2003) conducted with 70 participants in two stages suggest that the word association responses high self-monitors (HSMs) produce reflect selective activation of a personally meaningful, experiential, system. The responses low self-monitors (LSMs) produce, on the other hand, indicate an intellective factual system.

According to Halpern-Felsher, determinations of definitions for a competent decision, the process of how the decision was made, differ dramatically.

According to the article, which was compiled by the Associated Press (AP), Apple Inc. And its proprietary iPad tablet computing device is poised to alter the English lexicon through its supremacy within a particular market segment. Like the Band-Aid and Kleenex before it, the iPad has become so synonymous with a niche product that consumers invariably refer to competitor's offerings by the same name, and Apple Inc.'s executive management structure must now wade through the quagmire of intellectual property rights and trademark protection law to determine the course of action that preserves the company's duly earned domination of the market.

First, it changed how Australia was viewed by the global community; Australia was recognized as having the location, size, and resources to make it a global power, while lacking the size or might that would turn it into a threatening superpower. This resulted in Australia having a different diplomatic role after World War II. More significantly, World War II changed the domestic face of Australia. David Malouf uses World War II's transformation of Australia as a major element in his novel the Great World.

David Malouf's images of Australia and Australians prior to World War II help portray the image of Australia as a frontier. Prior to the war, the novel's two protagonists, Digger Keen and Vic Curran lead very different lives. Digger grew up in a home with strong feminine and masculine influences. The fact that Digger's mother is portrayed as a strong feminine force is interesting because women…… [Read More]

Bob Herbert believes America social, economic political issues require discussion change. Select issues Herbert discusses, essay 500 words, explain issue discuss agree diagree Herbert America handle issue.

In his essay "A Fire in the Basement," Bob Herbert talks about his frustrations with the state of the country today. He illuminates particularly that "public schools [are] swarming with students but starved of books and supplies" (qtd. In Graff, Birkenstein, and Durst 396). Herbert's assertion that public education in America is in trouble is correct: The resources are too taxed, the school systems too apathetic, and the students lack motivation. The best way to solve this problem is to take a closer look at how schooling is structured and make drastic reforms both on a commercial and philosophical level.

As it stands now, public education, with all of its downfalls, is still prized by Americans. In a 1999 poll, "more than 70%…… [Read More]

Miami's Jerry Herman Ring Theater Performance of South Pacific

Words: 599 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 94222977

miami./theatrearts/ring.html performance south pacific write a concise 500-word critical response

Students of the University of Miami's Jerry Herman Ring Theater Alvin Sherman family stage put on a very credible performance of South Pacific, which is running through the month of April. This work of drama is, of course, a musical. Therefore, it was highly significant that some of the most important actions that the audience witnessed during the performance were related to the singing, dancing, and music involved in this production.

It certainly helps that, since this musical was a Pulitzer Prize for Drama winner in 1950, many of the songs performed within the musical are classics, very famous, and were carried out in a polished manner. The two best numbers of the evening included I'm Going to Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair and Some Enchanted Evening. Andrew Leonard was involved in the latter, whereas the former utilized…… [Read More]

"South Pacific" explores a fairly crucial theme, one that was particularly relevant for the time in which the play was initially performed (in 1949). In those pivotal postwar years, this drama explores what ultimately resulted as the shrinking of the world as globalization began in earnest following the conclusion of World War II. However, the play deals with this thematic issue from a decidedly personal point-of-view, as it chronicles a pair of love stories in which there are significant cultural differences between the lovers. Therefore, the major theme of the play is to determine if conventional notions of prejudice still apply in the newly developing world, especially when they are involved in something as crucial to human feeling as love.

The intentions of the director, Michaeljohn McGann, seemed to be fairly clear. I believe the director was attempting to utilize as many different mediums and components of theater to convey the sense that true love is stronger than tradition or racial prejudice. This hypothesis is supported by the full-on, multimedia package that South Pacific encompassed. The production was not only powered by acting, but also by the three-dimensional aspect of music in the dances of the performers, their singing, and in the craftsmanship of the musicians who accompanied the singers. There were also a number of disparate elements of theater that largely entangled the director to accomplish this goal. These included, most saliently, the background scenery, which routinely changed during different acts and scenes to reflect an accurate visual depiction of the various physical locations the play took place in. The acting and directing were believable, and the actors seemed to bring a new vivacity to 60-year-old characters that helped to modernize the work. David Upton did a great job with the lighting, to present subdued and dramatic moments.

Ultimately, the enduring nature of the theme of the play helped to ensure that it is still socially relevant in contemporary society. Imperialist developments in our own world virtually ensure that cultural meshing will still take place. It is nice to know that in doing so, timeless values of love and romance can take center stage. Also, the imperialist tendencies of the United States imply that situations that occurred in South Pacific, such as romantic involvement between people of respective cultures, is still a part of today's society.

Criminal Justice Administration. The question ."How augmented reality unmanned aerial vehicles/systems function incorporated a law enforcement agency?." 500 words APA format 3 references

The contemporary society has reached a particularly advanced level when considering technology today and more and more domains start to depend on new technologies. In the current environment, law enforcement agencies need to be effectively prepared to deal with criminals and this means that they need to focus on adopting a series of technologies in order to achieve success in their field of work. Augmented reality and unmanned aerial vehicles/systems are especially intriguing when regarding the use of technology in the context of law enforcement and by considering these two concepts, law enforcement agencies are probable to significantly decrease crime rates.

Augmented reality can be particularly effective when coupled with facial recognition, as these two would provide law enforcement with the ability to rapidly detect criminals. y…… [Read More]

Initiating joint attention related to activity in the frontal-cortical system, especially the left hemisphere and responding to joint attention to the parietal lobes. Heimann et al.

Deferred imitation at nine months was the strongest of the predictors of nonverbal communication at 14 months, but the predictive power increased significantly in situations when deferred imitation and joint attention were used together.

controversial than a person could ever imagine. Historical interpretations must be questioned so that faulty historical thinking can be identified. One of the most complicated aspects in historical interpretations is that they are precisely that -- interpretations. This means that people cannot help but look back at history through the lens of today's history; this affects interpretation and today's interpretation will be different than yesterday or tomorrow's interpretation because it will be a completely different time. Historians have a very difficult job because they must be able to take in information and interpret it in responsible ways. Historians need the humility to listen and trust others and the courage to interpret (Cathcart 1995, p. 16)

The modern day business society is extremely dynamic and competitive. In the context of increasing forces of globalization, economic agents transcend boundaries and strengthen their competitive positions. This virtually means that the companies are presented with two different situations. For once, within the global community, they become able to access wider consumer markets and enhance their sales levels. On the other hand however, within the domestic community, they encounter increased competition as more foreign players enter the local market.

The business community as such becomes more and more competitive. But the complexities of the economic climate do not end with globalization, as these are enhanced by other elements as well. For instance, the demands of the customers exponentially increase…… [Read More]

Unphysical Act There Is No Sweat Running

Words: 959 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 45399100

unphysical act: there is no sweat running down the brow; no racing heart; no expending of significant calories or building bulky muscles. Writers can be as sedentary as they wish; in fact, they usually work sitting down. Writers can get fat or as drunk as possible without impeding a natural flow of words. There is nothing inherent in the act of putting pen to paper (or typing) that requires physical exertion. The wheelchair-bound can savor the fruits of their literary creations as robustly as can the athlete. Yet writing can be one of the most exhausting stationary activities. It requires concentration and attention on par with that of a hockey goaltender, and after a long session of creative or analytical endeavors, rest and a good stretch are most appreciated.

Writing is not usually a team sport, although it can be. Most often it is a solo performance, a choreographed expression…… [Read More]

Reciprocal Teaching

Words: 3956 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 24498527

eciprocal Teaching

In recent times, researchers and practitioners are focusing more and more in understanding the role of meta-cognition in reading. This is evidenced by the opinions proposed by researchers like Brown and Palinscar and Gracia and Pearson. As there exists dissimilarity between teachings of distinct expertise and making learners conscious of the inner processes that are carried on in the mind through meta-cognition, this field of research is significant on the whole. Individual readers, more frequently, encounter trouble in gathering together the right tactics to acquire holistic comprehension of text even though they may be able to carry out distinct abilities such as skimming and scanning, tolerating ambiguity, finding meanings from context and drawing inferences. eciprocal Teaching is one technique that has established to counteract this trouble and internalize the process of comprehension.

Compact Theory: The compact theory holds that the formation of the Union of the United States was through a "compact" of all the States individually and the creation of the national government was believed to be a creation of the states. Hence the states were the final judge of whether the national government had overstepped the boundaries of the "compact." One of the versions of the compact theory (the unilateral compact theory) was used by the Confederate secessionists to declare their secession from the Union, which signaled the start of the Civil ar (Lind, para 11).

There is another alternative method of determining how to assist students with reading known as the fluency scale developed by Aulls. This scale is an excellent means of complementing the other methodology advocated in the study. Aulls incorporates elements of expression and phrasing.

1. Using the language of possible worlds, explain what it means to say that ‘p is consistent with q.’
The idea that p is consistent with q is a logical premise that supposes there is a world in which p and q can both be true. This premise contrasts with the premise that p is contradictory of q, which states that if p is true, q must be false and there can be no possible world in which both are true and neither can there be one in which both are false. The idea here is that when p is consistent with q, the world in which such a premise could be true is one in which there may be a conjunctive proposition underlying the concept or there may simply be a nullification of the linguistic theory of necessary truth.

While these changes may well have been necessary and important, it also highlights the complicated rules and procedures those dealing with juveniles must follow. Meanwhile, individual municipalities and states, such as St. Louis and Texas, grapple with the practicalities of making juvenile probation do its job of rehabilitating youth and protecting society. It seems likely that Texas will not find the funds necessary to provide the type of program offered in St. Louis, since St. Louis can only accommodate 28 youth at a time. In addition, their approach still does not reach 35% of participants, so it is not the entire answer. Perhaps good research can suggest a way to offer rehabilitative probation to youth in a way that is financially feasible…… [Read More]

Q1. The mind-body problem in psychology has been discussed consistently since Plato. Discuss Dewey’s approach to understanding experience using Heidegger’s conception of mind and body and any relation to Heidegger’s approach to ontology? In what way does Husserl’s concept of ontology relate to the ideas of Dewey and Heidegger?
 
According to Neill (2005), the educational philosopher John Dewey attempted to overcome the deficits of both traditional and progressive education by stressing that experience is a product of a dialogue between continuity, defined as the individual’s concept of the past, and interaction, defined as the immediate experience of the individual’s environment. Therefore, two students may be experiencing the same phenomenon but react very differently, based upon their past experiences. Similarly, two individuals with the same past may become quite different, if they have different, later environmental influences.

Dewey’s education philosophy may be seen as reflective of the German philosopher Heidegger’s approach to…… [Read More]

Jonathan Edwards gives us a perfect example of the Calvinist beliefs of the Puritan settlers in early New England. Edwards studied theology at Yale University -- where today there is still a dormitory named after him -- but then became a noteworthy preacher in the Great Awakening, which exhorted an entire generation to renew their Christian faith. Edwards' skill in preaching lies in using literary imagery to get across abstract theological concepts. Calvinist theology believes in "total depravity" -- in other words, because of Adam and Eve eating the apple, human beings are fallen, and stained with "original sin."

Occupational Health and Safety in Catering Industry in Hong Kong

Occupational Safety and Health

The incidence rate of workplace accidents in the catering industry in Hong Kong is higher than that of other sectors, even those associated with inherently high risk to workers. Despite corrective action within the catering industry, the accident rate remains stubbornly high. This research identifies causal factors in occupational accidents in catering companies and delineates effective strategies that can be emulated by catering businesses in Hong Kong in efforts to reduce their accident rates and worker injuries.

Hong Kong is known for its international cuisine and, characteristically, a high number of restaurants -- many offering catering services -- exist in the city. Yet, the polished environments of the dining areas of world-class restaurants contrast greatly with the restaurant kitchen and backroom workspaces. The catering industry in Hong Kong attains extraordinarily high rates of accidents and has,…… [Read More]

Balanced Spelling Program

Unique spellings are created by the children as they are developing their skills of spelling development referred to as invented spellings. Based on the knowledge of phonology that the children have, spelling creation is a unique phenomenon in the children. In most of the cases, it is seen that the children use letters for spelling words and consonants rather consistent usage of sounds. Some of the main examples include night (NIT), girl (GL) and TIG (tiger). There are five main stages of spelling development in children. 1st stage, emergent spelling, is known for the scribbling of letters, letter like forms, and scribbles and children do no associate marks with phonemes (Tompkins, Campbell, and Green, 2011), p. 168). This stage represents a more natural expression of alphabets along with many language related concepts.

The world balks at the idea of gender discrimination, but the fact remains that gender differences are biological and there is no other way to deal with gender issues than to address them openly and seek better understanding.

As far as the linguistic capacity and the nature and cadence of conversations are concerned, women and men have been found to have various differences. Acknowledging these and working with them can allow better communication between the two genders so that the ubiquitous issue of men saying "we can't understand women' and women saying that 'men don't listen' can be alleviated.

There is no hope of resurrection in the death of the soldier in his poem. Compared to the image of the soldier who joins the army to help protecting his country against the evil, acclaimed after his death, brought out of anonymity, honored by his country and admired internationally, when chosen as a hero of a story by a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner, the soldier in the poem dies alone and calls for no parade. His death has no significance and it does not contribute to anything. No one benefits from it, no one cares. War is thus seen as a useless action causing losses like this that serve for nothing.

Thomas Paine & the American Crisis

Thomas Paine and the American Crisis

Thomas Paine was a brilliant political propagandist. He devoted his life to the causes of freedom, liberty, and justice and believed in the essential rights and liberties of all human beings, including the right to resist tyrannical authority. These beliefs are evident in The American Crisis, written at the height of the revolution to rally American forces. After its publication, it was very difficult for colonists not to be convinced that separation from British rule was the correct course of action.

Paine's work was directed toward erasing political and social injustices rather than creating new political systems. He argued for the natural rights of man and that the state existed to serve man, not the reverse. "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the…… [Read More]

Cashew fruit Maranon.

Cashews (also known as Maranon) are fruits from the cashew tree and originate in tropical America. It is easy to confuse the actual cashew fruit as a result of its appearance, as it has a peduncle uniting it to the tree. Some people experience trouble eating this fruit because they either believe that they should eat the peduncle or that they can eat the fruit itself without roasting it first. Trying to bite on the shell results in a very bitter taste and the fruit is actually poisonous in its raw version (Blake, 2009, p. 105). The peduncle is similar to a paprika while the nut is smaller, tough, and it is positioned outside of the paprika-like peduncle.

The peduncle separating the seed from the tree can be dried and it tastes like a combination between a prune and a fig. Its color varies and it can…… [Read More]

System of Checks and Balances and Separation of Powers Under the US Constitution

Words: 654 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 11214126

System of Checks and Balances

Power

The concept of Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances is more or less the same thing. Both of these ideas were introduced into the government to ensure that one branch of the government does not have all the power. Another reason it was introduced was so that the responsibilities and duties are distributed among different areas to ensure that the government is doing its job perfectly. Separation of Powers is basically a model of government in which various parts of the government have different tasks. The three different branches of the United States government are Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Before we get into the history of separation of powers, it is only necessary to tell which branch is in charge of what activities.

The legislative branch is basically the Congress and its major responsibility is to approve acts and make them into laws.…… [Read More]

How a Bill Becomes Law

How a Bill Becomes a Law

The Constitution of the United States divides the federal government into three separate, but equal branches. The legislative branch is responsible for the drafting and passage of legislation, or in other words, the Congress creates bills that can ultimately become laws. Since the Congress is divided into two chambers, the Senate and the House of epresentatives, legislation can originate from wither of the two, with some exceptions for bills related to the collection of revenue which must originate in the House of epresentatives. However, regardless of the origin of the legislation, a bill must pass both chambers of Congress before it can be sent to the Executive branch for ratification. But there are a number of hurdles that bills must overcome before this can happen.

A bill must be introduced by a member of Congress, which…… [Read More]

Tom Robbins was on a family tip; a fiend of mine lent me his copy of Half Asleep in Fog Pajamas and the title intigued me.

It took a good fifty pages fo me to get used to his style of witing, which defies conventions and genes. Sot of a combination of smut and high liteatue, Tom's tone neve fails to titillate the poetic senses. His witing is filled with metaphos and meanings that lay behind wacky plots.

references, both subtle and overt, to such matters. His characters walk in a world filled with magic. But politics and history also play an important role in Robbins books; perhaps Tom and I could discuss such sensitive issues as the crisis in the Middle East and his view on the "war on terrorism." I'm sure Tom would open my mind more on these subjects, as well as many others. Hopefully after a full day spent with Robbins, perhaps culminating in a shared bottle of wine or two, the two of us could remain in contact, at least until his next novel comes out.

Renaissance Humanism by Nature Humanists Believed That

Renaissance Humanism

y nature, Humanists believed that the ancient teachings of Greeks and Romans were a solid foundation for intellectual pursuits and social philosophy.

During the Renaissance the average man found himself turning away from a life that was governed by medieval Christian restrictions, and welcoming classical literature and paganistic views that paved the way to a more secular life and view.

The return to favor of the pagan classics stimulated the philosophy of secularism, the appreciation of worldly pleasures, and above all intensified the assertion of personal independence and individual expression.... Expansion of trade, growth of prosperity and luxury, and widening social contacts generated interest in worldly pleasures, in spite of formal allegiance to ascetic Christian doctrine (Kreis, 2002)."

The Renaissance was a time where many great humanists, like Desiderius Erasmus, and Niccolo Machiavelli encouraged their fellow man to embrace the classics and venture into intellectual independence. Erasmus was…… [Read More]

Perhaps they're put off by the cracked floor tiles or the cobwebs on the headless, foam-rubber mannequins. Whatever the reason, the store's rock-bottom prices and helpful service clearly aren't pulling in many shoppers" (Fairlamb and Cohn, 2003).

After nearly a decade of trying to penetrate the German market, Wal-Mart counted its losses and exited Germany. A Wal-Mart spokesman argued that, despite the million dollar losses, the experience was a positive one as it represented a turning point and a lesson for the future. The lesson was that in spite of its national success, Wal-Mart is vulnerable in the international context (Lander and Barbaro, 2006). Similar situations are also encountered in Asia, and the question that is being posed here refers to the future strategies Wal-Mart could implement in order to reduce its vulnerability and increase its position in the global context.

Childhood Obesity and Its Affects on Self-Esteem, Learning and Development

Childhood obesity has reached alarming proportions in developed nations of the world and its prevalence is continuously rising from 1971. In the Scandinavian countries, childhood obesity is less than compared to the Mediterranean countries; yet, the amount of obese children is increasing in both cases. Even though the highest rates of childhood obesity have been seen in developed countries, and at the same time, obesity is increasing in developing countries as well. Childhood obesity is at increased levels in the Middle East and Central and Eastern Europe as well. As an example, in 1998, The World Health Organization project assessing of cardiovascular diseases had showed that Iran was one among the seven countries, which had the highest rates of childhood obesity.

This particular aspect is what most medical trainers miss when dealing with interns or newly appointed nurses. They found that oxygen use, if below the necessary requirement can be damaging, so can its overuse. In another study, it has been found that using oxygen below the prescribed level can instigate damage in the organs, respiratory structures and can be especially damaging for patients who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (Danchin et al., 2009). Hence, the training and instructions that are given must follow be thorough enough to let the health caretakers realize that the monitoring is not merely a game of reading and recording, but it can have serious repercussions if handled carelessly.

Some of the common mistakes, which can be avoided through proper and accurate transference of instructions and training, occur in different medical circumstances. Sometimes nurses tend to miss the monitoring deadline. For instance, if a patient is…… [Read More]

Education research can benefit from the quantitative paradigm precisely because it is so often a subjective field. Teachers and lecturers tend to take a subjective approach when working with their students. This is logical, as any field where human beings are involved will necessarily be subjective. However, the field of education should particularly be standardized, because it focuses on preparing the labor force of the future (Thomas, 1998). Future employers would therefore wish for a particular standard in their employees. This standard should be quantified. This quantification process can be achieved by applying quantitative research principles in education. The general subjectivity of the field can therefore be balanced by a more standardized logical approach. Logical facts discovered by these methods can then be used as a basis for personalized, subjective, and individual teaching approaches that each teacher considers appropriate for his or her classroom. The correlational approach involves the consideration of data to determine the degree to which two or more quantifiable variables relate to each other (Johnson, 2001).

This relationship is then used as a basis for further quantitative study. This is particularly useful in studies such as those focusing on education, as students' performance can be correlated with other influencing factors such as previous performance throughout the year. This can then be used in order to establish methodologies that would be more effective for future practice.

An advantage of this method is that it forms a good initial basis for further research. It provides the researcher with a sound springboard for further study. It can also produce useful data for retrospective analysis. A good correlation between variables can for

(Steamboats, incidentally, did even better.)

Due to the heavy emphasis on steam transportation, especially by rail the government was better equipped to man and supply vast areas of the nation in combat. The train also traveled at a far greater speed than other more traditional forms of transport, as much as 5 times faster than the mule-drawn wagons of the day. Therefore fewer vehicles were needed and supplies and people arrived in far better condition than they had in the past.

Troops traveling by train rather than on foot experienced less fatigue and fewer instances of straggling and desertion, even though the freight cars used for most troop movements were anything but comfortable. Supplies hauled by rail were more likely to reach the troops in useable condition, owing both to the speed of delivery and to the shelter afforded by enclosed railroad cars.

There are countless examples of the alterations…… [Read More]

A further crucial aspect is the way in which the media covered the war. Media coverage was extensive and brought the horror and the reality of war into the ordinary American home as never before. Another aspect was the emergence of the " new left" element in the country which was critical not only of the war but of the way that the society was being run and administered in general. The site provides some insightful background on this aspect. "The Vietnam War was unprecedented for the intensity of media coverage -- it has been called the first television war -- as well as for the stridency of opposition to the war by the so-called "New Left."
