Canine Epilepsy Is a Chronic

Words: 1162 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 74995214

The dog may lose consciousness and fall to the ground. There may also be teeth gnashing, frantic thrashing of limbs, excessive drooling, vocalizing, paddling of feet, uncontrollable urination and defecation. The Post Ictus is the stage after the seizure when the dog may pace endlessly, appear blind and deaf and eat or drink excessively.

When a dog first experiences a seizure, it is essential to rule out causes other than true epilepsy. It is difficult to diagnose canine epilepsy because many other diseases or disorders can result in seizures Therefore, blood tests, x-rays, physical examination, and history leading up to the seizure are necessary for accurate diagnosis. If the clinician finds no identifiable cause of the seizure based on clinical evaluation, then the dog is considered to have true epilepsy. Seizures are not predictable. Some dogs appear to have seizures very regularly, while in others, the seizures appear to be…… [Read More]

Curious Incident of the Dog

Words: 688 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 32369870

His view of interactions with others and admonishments is of less importance as compared to that of animals. In my opinion, this explicates the climax of Haddon's plot. The fact that Christopher decides to dig into finding the killer of the dog to erase the predicaments implicated upon him, introduces an interesting turn of the story. To him, tracking down the legitimate killer was exponentially vital to him; a close reflection to Sherlock Holmes inspiration.

In my opinion, the insights from the book exceptionally enlightened my understanding of literature. I gained knowledge concerning fiction's correlation to reality. This is portrayed by the Christopher's brilliance that illustrates his lack of fathom in his personal emotions. Similarly, the funny incidences create a dazzling effect to my understanding as the fascinating sides of Christopher highlights a blessing in disguise nature. This has helped in satisfying the incidental perception of the world of reality.…… [Read More]

But this does not mean that this family cannot be understood as a political constellation. The family members relate to the world with violence, trying to make others conform to their desires with guns and drugs, a path that leads finally to a terrible action. This action transforms the novel from a type of ethnography and the characters from symbols of a certain kind of cultural actors into themselves, into individuals who believe they can no longer hide in the shadows of their culture and their history. The characters step out in front of the landscape, step out of the shadows of generalities, of being movers in a Great Canadian Novel.

Essential to understanding the novel and its characters is to trace the history of the family as it moves from America to Canada, from one geographical and historical site of colonization to another. In their home in British Columbia,…… [Read More]

Lady With the Pet Dog According to

Words: 1158 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 65241055

Lady ith the Pet Dog

According to Vladimir Nabokov, "The Lady with the Pet Dog" is referred to be one of the greatest stories ever written. The story was published in 1899, revealing a symbolic suitability according to the era. Chekhov, who was to die within five years, is revealed in the story as reinventing the form for the 20th century. In the context of this short tale, Gurov experiences an unfamiliar and winding course of principled and emotional growth that is not expected by most of the readers.

The author of "The Lady with the Pet Dog" is Anton Chekhov. Realizing the time, the cultures and the two continents transversely, Chekhov narrates tales of concealed love that extends deep into the lives, fears and hopes of men and women who are married. Such pairs struggle to traverse past their marriages that are fruitless and devoid of love in order…… [Read More]

His reaction is honest and real, and shows that he has emotions and feelings as well as logical reactions to his life. He also decides he cannot live with his father when he discovers his father is the one who killed Wellington. These are all emotional reactions to problems, and so he is very capable of love and other strong emotions. His reactions might not be what another person's reactions are, but they are certainly real and important.

In addition, Christopher becomes aware of a terrible hurt inside him because of his father's confession. Haddon writes, "But this hurt was inside my head. And it made me sad to think that I could never become an astronaut" (Haddon 132). That kind of hurt comes from love, and Christopher now knows the pain of loving someone and losing them. This feeling forces him to do things he would never do before,…… [Read More]

Development of Canine Behavior Genetics vs Environment

Words: 4662 Length: 15 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 91836586

Canine Behavior: Genetics vs. Environment

The debate over nature vs. nurture as it applies to learning dates back over a hundred years. Certainly, during much of the 20th century, the distinction between learned and inherited behavior appeared much clearer than it does today. The concept that any type of behavior was either learned or merely developed without learning seemed a rationale and straightforward belief. esearch based on these expectations caused some scientists to conclude that rat-killing behavior among cats, for example, is a learned behavior rather than an instinctive one, that human fears are all acquired, or that intelligence is completely the result of experience. Learning theorists were arguing at this point that most behavior is learned and that biological factors are of little or no importance. The behaviorist position that human behavior could be explained entirely in terms of reflexes, stimulus-response associations, and the effects of reinforcers upon them…… [Read More]

Gaining an Understanding of Mary Crow Dog

Words: 741 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 72685603

gaining an understanding of Mary Crow Dog, what did you find most interesting about this chapter? Be sure to explain why you found it most interesting.

This chapter provides a lot of insight into gender roles and norms in the society, beyond learning about how these norms impacted Mary Crow Dog on a personal level. The phenomenon of child marriage, and of the lack of power women had over their own destinies, is evidence from the very first sentence of Chapter 12 "Sioux and Elephants Never Forget." The first sentence is tellingly written in the passive voice, when Mary Crow Dog writes about her marriage to Crow Dog. She writes, "I became Crow Dog's wife," not "I married Crow Dog," which would be the active voice phrasing. Mary Crow Dog purposely uses the passive voice because she was not even eighteen years old when she married. And more than that,…… [Read More]

Buy Your Dog From a Pet Store

Words: 752 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 71203039

buy your dog from a pet store 'How much is that doggie in the window?' Passing by a pet store, it's easy to be tempted to buy a puppy or a kitten. However, according to the American Humane Society, it is estimated that approximately 3.7 million animals were euthanized in American shelters in 2008. "56% of dogs and 71% of cats that enter animal shelters are euthanized," according to the organization. This is despite considerable efforts of the Humane Society not to euthanize animals, unless absolutely necessary. And while some of these animals may have been unsuitable as pets because they were sickly or violent, many were not and were killed due to simple overcrowding. The most common reason people surrender their pets is that they are simply unable or unwilling to care for them. There are too many dogs for too few owners in the United States. Buying a…… [Read More]

Red Dog a Modern Application

A description of the entrance of Elmer Stark, father of Eddy and Tony, into the world of the story makes both the masculine and the feminine exotic, other, and unknowable, while at the same time igniting tensions and passions -- outright lust, in fact -- between them in a fetishization of the other. Nettie, the Stark matriarch, is described watching this stranger wash, "his naked shoulders, the gleam of his skin, and the lines of charred bronze where the sun had burned his neck and wrists, the faint red-gold of the hairs that edged from under his belt at his waist" (Lane, p. 144). This description makes it clear that Elmer is not being viewed as a human, but as an other, just as Nettie is creating her own distance and just as distances were created with the native peoples through such objectification. ith such beginnings as these, it is…… [Read More]

Embedding Elements of Functional Skills in K-9

Words: 433 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63617636

Embedding Elements of Functional Skills in K-9 Handling

Skills in individual areas become much more valuable to instructors and to learners when they are fully integrated or embedded within functional applications (Gravells, 2008). Generally, a good canine handler needs to have a command of factual knowledge about canine behavior, human psychology, criminal law and procedure, computer Internet technology, (ICT), and good writing skills. However, raw knowledge about canines, or so-called "textbook" knowledge (breed identification, history, physiology, general behavior, etc.) is comparatively useless in the field. Instead, the functional or "embedded" knowledge a canine handler must understand about dogs would include identifying predictable behaviors of various canines in specific situations. For example, knowledge about the respective lineage of the Belgian Malinois and German Shepherd is not particularly useful in the field as compared with embedded knowledge of their respective likely responses to gunshots.

Likewise, textbook knowledge of the history of the…… [Read More]

Chekhov likened his characters to a child who is just starting to understanding a new concept and meaning of love, leading him to further evaluate himself not just as a lover to Anna, but as a man and individual as he appears to Anna and other people:

He had two lives: one, open, seen and known by all who cared to know…and another life running its course in secret… everything that was essential, of interest and value to him…was hidden from other people; and all that was false in him…all that was open.

While Gurov admitted and acknowledged the hypocritical life he led by carrying on a love affair with Anna while still living with his wife, Anna remained confused and uncertain about herself and her lover in Oates' redevelopment of Chekhov's original short story. Created to complete the missing information on events surrounding Anna and her lover's affair in…… [Read More]

IONY IN BIECE'S Oil OF DOG

Ambrose Bierce's Oil of Dog is a dark, macabre and humorous, even though it is a short story it is very rich, compact and filled with irony. The irony which is the dominant and most outstanding element in Oil of Dog functions in several significant and symbolic ways. Bierce presents to the reader an inverted or upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right. He portrays his parents and their trade which is murder and thievery as honorable while at the same time presenting the righteous as guilty. The constable, a representative or law and order is described like this: "young as I was, I had learned that a constable's acts, of whatever apparent character are prompted by the most reprehensible motives" (12).

He also states that the town's people…… [Read More]

The Enron scandal sent ricochets through corporate America, causing literally thousands of people to lose their jobs and sending a major city into a deeper recession than that experienced by the rest of the country. Even seemingly minor corporate scandals have had a tremendous impact on both corporate America and on consumer confidence in corporations. One need only look at the recent media fury surrounding Martha Stewart's recent release from prison to realize that corporate misbehavior is the hot-button issue of the day.

It should also be pointed out that the Defendant, Mr. Taylor, warned the Plaintiff to not play with the dog and that Ms. Buffet openly admits that this is the case. The warning itself will not affect the issue of liability but it will impact on the measure of damages. As Ms. Buffet made no effort to play with the dog or otherwise interact with him the issue of the warning should have little impact on the case but it is something that must be considered.

In his essay, "Animal Models of Psychiatric Disorders and Their elevance to Alcoholism," Hitzemann (2000) reports that, "Both fear and anxiety are alerting signals that warn the individual against impending danger and enable the individual to take defensive measures.

Interestingly, doggie day care has become so common in some areas, that it has become "socially unacceptable" for people to leave their dogs home alone all day ("Pet Statistics"). This is true in large urban centers such as New York City and Los Angeles, which has led to a proliferation of doggie day care centers in these areas. As more pet owners become involved in every aspect of their pets' lives, it seems clear that services such as doggie day care will continue to grow and thrive. However, just about any business concerning pets seems to be on the rise today, and getting involved in the pet industry seems to be a good investment for an entrepreneur in the future, because the industry is still growing, rather than leveling out.

It demonstrated that,.".. survey respondents who experience difficulty answering questions respond differently to related subsequent questions than do those who do not experience such difficulty (JA, Effects of urvey)."

The story of animal abuse in dog fighting was one that caused polls to be taken to measure public opinion. That public opinion was in strong support of the animals that Vick had abused and used in an abusive manner. The journalistic tactic was one wherein the journalists used the opportunity for the public to speak out, to be heard, to participate in the outcome of Vick's legal proceedings as an incentive to be surveyed publicly.

Some animal lovers have attempted to deal with the problem of young people being indoctrinated into the sport of dog fighting by creating more social and legal ways to be entertained, and to compete. "Concerned by the increasing number of youths involved in dog fighting, former animal control officer Sue Sternberg decided to do something about it. In 2002, Sternberg started Lug-Nuts, a program that encourages inner-city teens to enter their dogs in weight-pulling competitions instead of fights (NG JA a Humane)."

Sternberg's efforts are interesting, and there should be research devoted to the outcomes she is experiencing in the program. "Within this context, this analysis is predominantly definitional, seeking to isolate the unique features of qualitative research (JA QRRC)."

Thomas/Updike Compare/Contrast

The Fight for Life in Dylan Thomas' "Do not go gentle into that good night" and John Updike's "Dog's Death"

Death has proven to be an inspiration for many poets and has been written about throughout history. These poets look at death from differing perspectives and many have argued that it should be fought against while others are more submissive to the concept. In "Do not go gentle into that good night," written by Dylan Thomas (1951), and "Dog's Death," by John Updike (1993), take a stance that accepting death is unnatural and that a person or any living being should fight until the end. In "Do not go gentle into that good night," Thomas argues that death is something that should be fought against and that a person should only succumb to their end when he or she is ready. On the other hand, in "Dog's Death,"…… [Read More]

U.S.C. § 48 is not aimed at specific instances of animal cruelty, but specifically at the creation and distribution of depictions of such abuse for the purposes of interstate and/or foreign commerce. This is the act that the appellant was unarguably engaging in when apprehended by law enforcement, and the fact that the law is not aimed at those participating directly in acts of animal cruelty does not in and of itself create a constitutional objection.

The statutes specific mention of interstate commerce renders the appellant's claim that the constitutionality of the statute is in question due to a dependence on state definitions also moot. Not only were the acts depicted in the videos the appellant old to law enforcement agencies unquestionably illegal in all fifty states, but the federal government has a duty to regulate interstate commerce specifically because state definitions and regulations differ. Failing to regulate the interstate…… [Read More]

The subtlety of their actions make their affair all the more romantic, because, set in the real world, who would consider the actions of two people committing adultery as romantic? Thus, a closer look at how love is given meaning by Dmitri and Anna opens the reader's eyes to the realization that one need not be verbalize or explicitly show his or her feelings in order to feel that love is present between two people. Thus, the author spared the readers any romantic words and dialogues, and provided them with incidents in the story that may seem trivial, yet significantly important to the lovers in the story. This is exemplified in the scene where the author narrates their rendezvous: "She was pale; she looked at him, and did not smile, and he had hardly come in when she fell on his breast. Their kiss was slow and prolonged, as though…… [Read More]

Conflicts Between Parents and Their Children: Amy Tan's "Two Kinds" and Mark Haddon's the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

e have all had our own squabbles with our parents, but in some cases it is a hard fight standing up against an oppressive parental force and establishing yourself as an individual. Yet, this is exactly what Jing-mei oo and Christopher Boone do. In both Amy Tan's "Two Kinds and Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the growing teenage characters are being smothered by their oppressive single parents. Each one of them is being forced to play a role that is not truly meant for them; however, when each of them make a stand against that oppressive parental force, they are truly allowed to come into their own and establish themselves as an adult.

He wants to honor his dead wife, so he takes the dog along with him just as she did. This is perhaps the only gesture the father makes toward the dog. Throughout the poem, it appears as if the father is indifferent to the dog, if anything at all.

The paradox we encounter in the poem is if a dog can actually suffer from grief with the ultimate question resting on the notion of animals missing human beings. The most ironic aspect of this poem is how the dog appears to be suffering more than the father is. The poet does not go into the father's suffering at all, except to say that he refuses counseling. The meaning and primary idea behind the poem is that all creatures suffer loss whether or not they can express it in ways that humans might be able to understand. It took death for…… [Read More]

Grooming not only helps in zeroing in on external parasites and skin wounds, and does not allow fur to fall on furnishings, it also helps in spending a good quality time establishing a quality time with the feline friend. In case of shorthaired cats, one can use a metal comb which is fine-toothed on a weekly basis and a rubber brush or natural bristle to eliminate the traces of dead hairs. ("Grooming Cats," n. d.) ii) Price:

It is important to note that quality and price are the two most vital needs of a balanced marketing mix and hence either one in the absence of the other is most definitely to fail. At the time of fixing the pricing structure it has to be ensured that one squares off his overhead, including a profit and compare with other companies offering a same dog grooming service.

Pit Bulls: The Bad ep

The American Pit Bull -- also known as the American Staffordshire Terrier -- is a descendent of the muscular fighting dogs bred by the Molossi tribe of ancient Greece. Physically powerful and possessed of an intelligence that rendered them trainable, these ancient fighting dogs fought alongside their masters in territorial warfare over tribal lands. Between the years of 50 AD and 410 AD, it is believed that the Molossi dogs were sold and traded throughout Greece and crossbred to create the first breed of bulldog -- the American Pit Bull's immediate ancestor. While the omans essentially used the dogs as canine gladiators in arena blood-sports, early Norman butchers used them to control unruly cattle. Later evolving into the horribly inhuman sport of "baiting," the dogs were trained to nip, herd, and essentially harass a bull for hours in a spectacle for the crowd.

After baiting…… [Read More]

Social Media Marketing has now become one essential ingredient of every business on fire, planning to serve community in most delicious way possible.

Like the one brilliant step taken by UK cooker brand Belling, eager to reposition its name by grabbing attention of folks socializing on Twitter who love to cook and share their fun and interest with others worldwide.

The campaign was not just all about bringing in recipes of mouth watering treats in a short recipe book bearing the name of 'tweet pie', but its outstanding aspect was to limit the length of every recipe to 140 characters. This was the most engaging feature for twitter fans and audiences (Cooking up the twecipe book, 2011)

The second type of competition is posed by the local pet care services, which -- similar to The Happy Pup Daycare Center -- are focused on small scale services, with an increased willingness and ability to customize the service offering. These local companies are however not as threatening as they all activate in an underserved market, and especially as they are geographically spread to several smaller areas, that seldom intersect.

d) Economic Analysis

The pet care services industry is expected to be influenced by the general state of the economy, with the understanding that an improved economic condition would generate an increase in the demand for pet care services, whereas an economic contraction would result in a decrease in the demand for pet care services. Today, the economy strives to revive from a recession and the demand for the pet care services would be contracted in comparison to its potential…… [Read More]

Strategic Plan

Economic: According an April 2004 American Pet Products Manufacturers Association, Inc. (APPMA) news release, pet owners are projected to spend "$2.2 billion for other [pet] services" in 2004 (Veter, 2011). That's a small portion of the more than $34 billion they will spend on all classes of pet care and product spending in 2004. The same APPMA news release reports that consumer spending on pet products has doubled from $17 billion to a projected $34 billion since 1994 when the APPMA first began tracking pet industry statistics.

Social: The sales strategy will be to develop a list of happy past customers who are willing to act as referrals for Big Dog. Once this list is developed, their names will be given out when a prospective client calls (May, 2009).

Animal Senses

Herman, Pack and Hoffman-Kuhnt performed relatively rigorous experiments to determine the source of dolphin recognition of objects; they wanted to discover, among other things, whether "dolphins attained the shape discriminations (of objects) through associative learning or direct perception" (Herman et al. 1998 292). Fukuzawa, Mills and Cooper sought to determine the mechanism by which domestic dogs responded to commands. Greenberg wanted to discover the facts about depth perception in two species of Asian rodents, the Mongolian Gerbil and two varieties of Spiny Mice.

Dolphins

The experiments run by Herman et al. involved a single dolphin, a female named Elele, and were designed to determine whether echolocation or visual cues were central to dolphin recognition of objects that appeared in their environment. The researchers were extremely rigorous in setting up each experiment, avoiding contamination between visual and echolocation fields; the objects used for the dolphin's recognition tests were never…… [Read More]

The store will have a physical location and an internet Web site where people can buy products and get information about owning and caring for large breed dogs such as great Danes, Great Pyrenees, Irish Wolfhounds and Newfound lands. The store will be called Big Dogs. The first step in developing the business is to create a vision statement and mission statement for the business and then to develop objectives, strategies, goals and programs (Planware, n.d.).

Hossenlopp v. Cannon. The case in question pertains to negligence as it pertains to dog bites and the implications that these events can have on owners when it comes to legal liability. Further, there was a differing state-to-state standard about whether it mattered or not if the owner of the dog had prior knowledge of the dog engaging in aggressive behavior. While it mattered in South Carolina as to whether prior knowledge of viciousness existed, this was not the case in California and the latter was the standard employed in the Hossenlopp case.

Varied Perspectives on Non-Surgical Sterilization Methods:

There have been varied perspectives on the use of non-surgical sterilization of the dog since these products do not entirely solve the problem of the overpopulation of dogs and cats. Additionally, the varied perspectives and arguments on the use of these methods have also been due to the fact that some people don't care since they want to breed their animals. Given that there is no secure and effective non-surgical sterilization method of the dog that has been identified and announced, the varied perspectives have continued to increase. However, there have been various approaches to identify non-surgical products though none of the products have shown tremendous results to be widely adopted and implemented (Bowen, 2006).

One of the major perspectives has been against the non-surgical sterilization of the dog since the methods that have been explored have not only been ineffective but have also…… [Read More]

Look at yourselves!" their aunt barked out. And when Joe compliments his aunt of the aroma of food cooking, she urges him not to "change the subject" (a ploy boys are quite adept at), but soon she sees Joe's skinned arm and bruised forehead and notices Frank's limp (the result of the accident), and her tone changes.

They, however, established a trend, indicating increased social behavior and decreased agitation when dogs were in the company of the respondents. This improvement in social behavior was unrelated with the severity of the respondents' dementia. Six of the 9 studies were conducted in the U.S.A., 2 in Japan and 1 in Australia on 28 respondents, all with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease or dementia (Perkins et al.).

Describe the company's supply chain

In order to differentiate itself from other similar companies, Hot Diggity Dogs has focused on the quality of its products. As a consequence, the company's management concluded that it is not enough to have a supplier deliver the hot dogs, chips, buns and soda, but that it would need to control the production process for the most important elements on its menu, namely the hotdogs, the chips and the buns.

As a consequence, Hot Diggity Dogs has expanded its supply chain to include raw materials (meat, potatoes) and the supplier manufacturing. The idea is to be involved in these processes in the quality assurance phases: personnel from Hot Diggity…… [Read More]

Words: 729 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 83986958

It was a bit frustrating. My friend actually asked me if I was feeling okay. She said I seemed distracted, so I ended up telling her about the earplug. We were going into the movie anyway then.

Because it was quiet in the cinema, I had an easy time hearing the film. A few words were lost here and there, but for the most part, it was an okay experience. Because I am used to the surround sound at the cinema, I felt like I wasn't hearing that as much and I missed the full effect of going to the movies.

Wearing the two earplugs was a completely different experience from wearing the one. I went to a cardio class at my gym and because the routines are always different, I was having a very hard time following because I couldn't hear what the instructor was saying. I had to…… [Read More]

controversy regarding cats and dogs and their place in society at the moment, as there are animal lovers who go through great efforts to control their populations and make sure that they are not ignored and as there are individuals who feel that it is wrong to keep an animal as a pet because of the problems that it brings on. Society's attitudes toward dogs and cats vary on account of factors like cultural values and personal opinions. They range from individuals who would do everything in their power to protect these animals to persons who see nothing wrong with eating them.

The estern society largely perceives dogs and cats as animals that are an active part of this community and that need to be provided with a series of rights in order for the masses to gain a more complex understanding concerning the role these beings play. The bond…… [Read More]

Marketing

Best in Show is going to face tremendous difficulty in bringing Show Circuit to market. There are a number of problems that the company faces, among them issues of targeting, promotional spending and positioning. The product is inherently high end, given the cost of production, so this must be taken into consideration when devising the marketing strategy. The market has not been adequately segmented at present, because no psychographic segmentation has been done. The research thus far merely assumes conclusions about end users -- for example that appeals like having your dog eat what you eat are actually going to be effective or that talking to consumers like this is the 1950s (find it in the freezer section of the grocery store) is going to make sense to the younger, urban consumers of 2008. These assumptions should be undone and the market understand in a more sophisticated manner if…… [Read More]

Character analysis: Buck in The Call of the ild

Jack London's novel The Call of the ild is unique because the most compelling protagonist of the book is not a human being but a dog. Buck is described as having the intelligence, strength, and capacity for loyalty comparable with a human being. Buck is tested throughout the book and finally shows himself to be the dominant dog of a pack of sled dogs and later a pack of wolves. The book follows the trajectory of a novel of enslavement: Buck is removed from his happy existence as a pet, forced to become a sled dog in the Artic, and survives a challenge by the pack leader by relying upon his wits.

Project Schedule Dependencies and Constraints

The first step of the project was feasibility analysis of the idea opening a dog day care. In this step the market research was completed and in parallel questionnaires was sent out to understand the expectations of customers. One of the biggest challenges of the project is the financial constraints. Market research and the questionnaires provided a tentative budget expectation; however, the bank loans and tax related concern slowed down the project. After having a solid idea about the budget the possible locations and size of the project could be determined. The prospective owner profiles and dog breeds are identified in regards to the location. Although it was planned to have door to door service it is feasible to serve for the customers who would deliver their dogs while they get chance to see facilities.

Business Law Case Review

Tennessee Scrap ecyclers Association v. Bredesen, the court affirmed the law in question and upheld the state's ability to set the terms under which it would allow transactions regarding scrap metal to take place. The court noted that the problem the law was designed to thwart was a local issue and thus did not violate the Fifth Amendment's Commerce Clause (State law, 2009, Cengage). Also, the additional burdens imposed upon the scrap metal dealers were so minimal it did not affect their ability to participate in interstate commerce, nor did it give additional privileges to in-state dealers. "The government did not take possession of any property; it only regulated the method in which the business is lawfully transacted" and there was a compelling law enforcement issue at stake -- to prevent transactions in stolen merchandise (State law, 2009, Cengage).

Even without any arrest, the officer could conceivably have conducted an external pat-down or Terry search of the subjects' outer garments to detect any weapons under the doctrine of officer safety (Schmalleger, 2008; Zalman, 2008).

However, even a Terry search would not have permitted to officer to further investigate or search any soft lumps or other contents of pockets not indicative of possession of a plausible weapon (Dershowitz, 2002). Furthermore, absent evidence that Terry and Kim were jointly engaged in criminal conduct, even a valid search of Terry pursuant to a valid arrest that yielded a small amount of marijuana in his pocket would not have justified a separate search of Kim (Schmalleger, 2008).

In this case, the search of both subjects was improper because it was conducted incident to an invalid arrest. Therefore, either Kim or Terry may challenge the introduction of any contraband retrieved from their personal possession.…… [Read More]

Simic in Old World it

Words: 694 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 84942623

"

Even if there is no specific audience for "Old World," the poem may have added depth and meaning to those who have left the Old World for the New. Simic is not Sicilian, and yet his imagery would especially appeal to those from Mediterranean countries. The Romans were in Serbia, though, so there is a thematic link between the forgotten empires of Italy and Simic's own Serbian lands.

In "County Fair," the audience is even more elusive than it is in "Old World." The speaker does use the first person plural, bringing the audience actively into the action of the poem. In this sense, "County Fair" speaks to the audience on an intimate personal level. The narrator includes the reader in the action, as the poet is asking the reader to determine what "County Fair" means to the individual. There are no absolute meanings embedded in the poem. Instead,…… [Read More]

Everyone Should Not Own a Pet

Words: 933 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 75140166

domestication of dogs over ten thousand years ago, companion animals have held a special place in the hearts of people. For many people, owning a companion animal is a rewarding and enjoyable affair. Pets will offer unconditional love and support that may otherwise be unobtainable to people in today's cold-hearted, "dog-eat-dog" society. However, owning a pet of any species, much like having a human child, is an endeavor that calls for a great deal of commitment and responsibility on the part of the human companion. "Even people who care about animals are often unable to recognize or meet animals' many needs." (PETA) People who are unable to provide for an animal's financial needs, are unwilling to make life-style changes for an animal, or are opposed to treating an animal with love and respect should not own a pet.

Unlike most acquisitions, adopting a pet is not a one-time "purchase." Once…… [Read More]

Words: 623 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 12682701

Nabokov's father studied criminal law at St. Petersburg University, but then channeled his legal background into political activism. He was against capital punishment, pogroms, and many tsarist practices. Nabokov explains how his father's "antidespotic" writings have gotten him into trouble (175).

In "Old World," Charles Simic celebrates a moment of contemplating eternity as he gazes on the ruins of an ancient temple in Sicily. The first line of the poem starts, "I believe in the soul," but "it hasn't made much difference." Later, the poet states that as dusk fell it was like "eternity eavesdropping on time." Motifs of soul and of timelessness permeate the poem. The imagery of ancient ruins allows Simic to examine the theme of eternity, and the potential timelessness of the human soul. Likewise, the poet engages imagery of the Sicilian shepherd way of life, which has largely remained untouched for centuries. The speaker discovers the…… [Read More]

Geology Film

Rebirth:

A Geologically Based, Imaginative Film

oday's environmentalists often tell the public about the harmful effects of our actions. Yet, despite warnings of too many carbon emissions from vehicles and deforestation woes, our society does not seem to understand just how harmful our actions can be. However, if we do not take action to alleviate these worrisome actions some way, these warnings will turn into reality, and we might not only harm, but kill the planet's most precious life. [1: Gore, Albert. Our Choice. oronto: Random House, 2009. Print. ]

he movie discussed below will therefore provide a context for the harms of our society, albeit an imaginary one. he film, titled Rebirth, will show how humanity has destroyed the Earth's environment to such an extent that humans have been forced to utilize existing means to escape current, deplorable situations on Earth. Unlike the Pixar film, Wall-E, which…… [Read More]

The humans must, again, learn how to either domesticate the dinosaurs, but most likely humans will choose to utilize various chemicals to perhaps feed the dinosaurs by placing the beneficial chemicals in water, or can choose to make dinosaurs artificially repulsed by the tastes of human and modern day animal meat, so that they can ensure that dinosaurs will not eat them.

Another fact to consider would be weather related issues. During the cretaceous period, many things were different. For example, the global temperature was about seven degrees higher than global surface temperatures today. Furthermore, there were virtually no ice sheets and subtropical plants and animals lived far towards the poles we know today. In terms of temperature fluctuations, this period knew period of warmth, so human will most likely not see any winter weather. However, extreme warmth can cause stress on marine life, which can also affect the kinds of foods that humans will be able to find. [7: "The Mid-Cretaceous Period." UW Atmospheric Sciences. Web. 07 May 2011. . ] [8: Hamilton, Jason. "Cretaceous Period." ScienceViews.com. Web. 07 May 2011. . ]

Humans would have to consider the kind of food that they would be able to find to survive. This could be alleviated by bringing some supplies so that humans can adapt from modern to ancient times, however these supplies will not last forever. These are all issues that must be examined scientifically so that we can determine whether humans will actually be able to survive in any dinosaur-based environment. At this moment, due to the fact that humans have never actually been able to have been found as having survived during dinosaur times, it will have to be quite unrealistic to place them in this context. However, science could find a way to either alter environment or place humans in a sort of bubble, in order to help them survive in a pristine Earth.

From there, our income will grow with the company to $60,000 and $100,000, figures in line with successful high-end groomers in other parts of the country. We expect to finance PetStop with money that we have saved, and from family members. We do not anticipate adding debt to our balance sheet, as we feel confident that we can raise the estimated $40,000 in startup costs and an additional $20,000 in initial working capital without bank loans. We will use the working capital to pay for regular supply and insurance costs. We will not draw a salary for the first year, possibly the first two years. We hope to buy out the family equity within three to four years.

John Berryman's "Dream Song 14"

Dream Song

This poem, friends, is boring. The entire work seeks to illustrate the idea that "life, friends, is boring." It does so by being itself tremendously boring. Though the author occasionally uses exciting or interesting words and phrases, such as "flash and yearn," he does so only in the pursuit of higher boredom by showing that even these words can be sucked into a context which ultimately yields a wish for death. There is nothing but boredom. In the poem, the narrator subsumes the conventions of interesting poetry and puts on, as it were, the form of a half-decent modern poem. However, he purposefully avoids allowing any of the sublime to slip into his work, thus leaving this form of high poetry dead and boring. By structuring his poem in a modern conventional fashion, maintaining a detached and uninterested tone throughout, and by setting…… [Read More]

These rites could weed out the weak from the strong, and eventually pointed to the best and wisest leaders among the people.

The second raid against the Crow is another step on White Man's Dog's path toward manhood. He is chosen to "count the first honor" (Welch 139) of the battle, and this shows his stature has risen in the band. He is wounded, but he kills and scalps the leader of the Crows, and his father acknowledges he is a brave. However, he finds he does not enjoy the killing, and this makes him an even greater man, because he understands the evil of fighting amongst each other, when the Natives should all be banding together to ward of the white man's advances. After the second raid, he is renamed "Fools Crow" because the tribe believes he tricked the entire Crow village, and that helped in their victory. This…… [Read More]
