S. citizens.

Despite all of the destruction and chaos that had crippled the South as a result of the war and his surrender to Grant, Lee was considered "the symbol of everything for which (the Confederate soldiers) had been willing to die." Thus, "if the Lost Cause," being the loss of the Old South and its aristocratic/slavery system, "sanctified by so much heroism and so many deaths, had a living justification," it was obert E. Lee (Catton, 2003, 632).

In contrast, Ulysses S. Grant "was everything Lee was not," for instead of being raised in a rather well-to-do family with close and important ties to a number of wealthy and prominent Southern political figures and leaders, Grant, the son of a skin tanner of the Western American frontier, had been raised "the hard way" and symbolized the "eternal toughness" and sinewy fiber" of the great mountain men, those who had…

He focused on tariff reform in the Underwood-Simmons Act by arguing that high tariffs created monopolies and hurt consumers, pushed to end certain child labor practices, and above all tried to engender a fairer distribution of public funds for housing, utilities, and public projects (Wilson, 2011).

However, looking back at his pre-World War I policies, it was his adamant work on currency and banking reform that seemed to have the greatest impact on American society. The Federal eserve's Monetary Policy is the most important function of the Fed and is probably the most used policy in macroeconomics. Monetary policy refers to the actions undertaken by a central bank, such as the Federal eserve, to influence the availability and cost of money and credit to help promote national economic goals. The Federal eserve Act of 1913 gave the Federal eserve responsibility for setting monetary policy. The Federal eserve controls the three…

Grant and Lee: A Study in Contracts

Why do the differences between Grant and Lee receive more extended treatment than the similarities? Why are the similarities discussed last?

The United States, at Appomattox, had just suffered a profound rend in its history because of the Civil War, culturally and personally. For the duration of the war, the nation's regional and political differences rather than its similarities had come to the forefront. The personages, political views, and upbringings of Grant and Lee are used to emphasize this, as "they were two strong men these oddly different generals, and they represented the strengths of two conflicting currents that through them, had come into final collision. As North and South was in contrast, so the generals at the head of the army represented this contrast. But ultimately, these generals were forced to come to peace, and thus their similarities are discussed at the…

Grant and ilson

I propose that doing a comparison of Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and oodrow ilson would allow for a comprehensive understanding of how the leadership styles of these two men shaped the United States of America during their respective administrations. They will be compared in terms of their public and political leadership, how they functioned as Chief Executive and the leader of the Executive Branch, and how they functioned as Chief Legislator including their relationship with Congress.

Public and Political Leader:

During his initial run for office, Grant was a very popular man with the American public. He was considered a hero of the Civil ar. His accomplishments included expansion of Republicanism into the south which yielded the first elections of black Congressmen. However, his administration was marred by corruption and he has gone down in history as one of the least effective presidents politically (ilentz 2010).

For example, if one case study is presented per week in the curriculum, this could be "dosed up" by presenting two or three case studies per week to the classes in the intervention group. This could have the desired effect of increasing the expected effect size.

Attrition rates must be accounted for when determining sample size. If there was a 30% attrition rate, the determined sample size would remain realistic, since 88 nursing schools is still a considerable number of schools to work with as long as the numbers of schools that do and do not use case studies in the study are relatively equal.

Collecting a sample of this size would not take a large amount of time. The recruitment process would involve identifying BSN and ADN programs who are HESI clients and either do or do not use standardized case studies. Enough programs would have to be identified…

Many people do not understand this distinction in school, but when they get into the 'real world' they will often discover it. I liked this essay a lot because it was very true to life, and because Baker was not afraid to say what he thought about the issue instead of trying to make sure that he kept everyone who read the essay happy with his beliefs. Since he was not trying to please everyone, his honesty came through and was quite valuable.

intervention used to address the program outcome, school and community leadership in its application to improving Hispanic 8th grade females is a creation of a community/school task force, or focus group to address these issues.

To make this decision I used mostly my intuition as it guided me towards this answer. Its simple and the research suggests it can be effectively and economically put into place.

This intervention is superior because it does not exist in the current school's system. Its superiority is measured by the amount of effort that is being placed in the intervention.

This intervention will draw upon selected members of the school's faculty extra time. This task force may need to replenish this resource.

Grant ood

The best possible introduction to Grant ood's American Gothic is the fact that it was listed by The ashington Times as one of the most important icons of the 1930's in America: "Hardship at home and conflict abroad...the Great Depression. Dust bowl farmers sought a harvest of hope...labored to lift the countries spirits...Pitchfork Picture: Grant ood paints American Gothic." (The ashington Times, May, 1999)

Created in 1930, American Gothic captured the public imagination and shifted the attention of American painting from the cosmopolitan to the rural: "Grant ood's 'American Gothic' caused a stir in 1930 when it was exhibited for the first time at the Art Institute of Chicago.... Newspapers across the country carried the story and the painting of a farm couple posed before a white house...." (The Art Institute of Chicago eb site)

In addition to utilizing the ELMO system as a lesson presentation tool, we intend to incorporate it as a motivational device, such as by rewarding both improvement and superior performance with the opportunity to have their work presented to the class.

Including the ELMO system in our Accelerated Reading Program and Florida Reading Initiative present additional avenues for more extensive incorporation of the equipment.

4. Proposed Evaluation of Objectives:

The proposed evaluation objectives consists of conducting comprehensive objective reading skills diagnoses before the introduction of the ELMO system into the classroom environment. A subsequent series of objective diagnostic evaluation will provide a method of measuring the beneficial effect of incorporating the ELMO system into the lesson plan.

Similarly, analysis and comparison of standardized achievement tests results will provide a direct measurement of the success of this initiative at achieving the educational goals that the system is intended to accomplish.

Drunken Decision Made Hugh Grant a Profit of £11 Million

Imagine buying a painting for £2 million and selling it a few years later for £13 million. Such a stunt would require a lot of sobriety. Grant pulled it off…and he was not sober.

Hugh Grant, in what one would call a sobering confession, says he was drunk when he made a decision to purchase a painting that would six years later net him a profit of £11 million. The painting in question was that of Elizabeth Taylor by Andy Warhol.

The star, best known for his appearance in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral bought the painting back in 2001 for £2 million and offered it for sale less than a decade later for £13 million.

Although the transaction earned him the reputation of a talented art collector, Grant says the purchase decision in this case was not…

4 trillion and $3.6 trillion, an impressive boost to the U.S. economy in those years, the IPC explains. A study conducted by Arizona State University determined that when a person has a bachelor's degree that person earns about $750,000 more over the course of a lifetime of earning than a person with just a high school diploma earns.

The data from that study indicates that as of 2006, those working without a high school diploma earned approximately $419 per week and had an unemployment rate of 6.8%, the IPC explains. Those with a bachelor's degree earned approximately $962 per seek and their rate of unemployment was only 2.3%; over their careers college graduates earn "in excels of 60% more than a high school graduate, and workers with advanced degrees earn two to three times as much as high school graduates" (IPC, p. 2).

HEALTH -- RESEARCH SITE'S PERSPECTIVE ON FUNDING - ESSAY

As the CRA of a large orthopedic clinic specializing in advanced joint reconstructive techniques for athletes, I occasionally recommend funding streams that might be pursued for research. A principal investigator at the clinic is interested in some promising new research that could lead to an improvement in patient recovery times. The question is whether a federal grant or a research contract from a pharmaceutical company should be pursued as the funding stream for the new research.

As a CRA administering clinical trials for a large orthopedic clinic, I would recommend obtaining a federal grant for the promising new research. The key differences between a federal grant -- or any grant, and a private contract -- or any contract, are in the concept and consequences of default (DeMaio, 2015).

The writer of the grant proposal introduces adaptation theory for the English literature review related to dance. Writer notes how dance has been used to capture literature. However, what has not been explored is dance becoming literature. Meaning notable American modern dance choreographers and their memoirs, how-to guides, autobiographies, and criticisms.

Therefore, the writer aims to explore choreographic memoirs and autobiographies and how they should be considered their own literary genre to allow future generations to better understand dance in a literary sense.

As noted, this is an interesting book. However, an introduction to the subject as well as concluding remarks by Crockett would have been helpful. The reader is left in limbo at the end without any concluding comments. The introduction could have provided more information as a foundation of Christianity and the notion of hell and perhaps even how other religions view this. In addition to these four perspectives, there are other Christian views on hell and they could have been noted here. For example, universalism is the theological doctrine that all souls will ultimately be saved and that there are no torments of hell.

Grant Proposal for Strengthening the Family Unit

Program Design and Implementation

The overall design and structure of the program will orbit around multiple activities and methodologies which are designed to fortify the overall family unit, most notably the parental unit. Parenting is an extremely challenging endeavor and one which can put a considerable strain on a marriage -- even the strongest marriage. Thus, one of the foremost aspects of the program in general will consist of a parenting skills training program to minimize behavior problems in young children (particularly when these children are at the most difficult age) by bolstering the level of parent self-efficacy through beneficial parenting behaviors and overall child discipline strategies (NEPP, 2012).

Many of the strategies used in this case will be modeled after the Chicago Parent Program (CPP), which is an extremely well organized program that is founded in the notion that parents play the…

Grant Proposal for Women's Wellness Center

This proposal is for a grant of $125,000 for the operation of an inner-city Women's Center. These funds will be used for staffing and operating the center and for supplying guidance, informative literature, and assistance to women seeking an alternative to abortion.

Women's Wellness Center and History

In 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released data regarding the number of abortions performed three years prior in 2008. Considering that an epidemic is defined as a "widespread occurrence of an infectious disease in a community at a particular time," or in meningococcal terms, a rate of attack that is more than 15 cases for every 100,000 people (Green, Swartz, Mayshar, Lev, Levanthal, Slater, Shemer, 2002), it may be appropriate to state that abortion in America has reached beyond epidemic proportions. In 2008 alone, CDC reports that 825,564 abortions were performed, at a…

Multiple Medications

Project Title: Examining the Effects of Multiple Medications

Project Description and Background

Seniors in New Brunswick long-term care facilities are often prescribed multiple different drugs. This polypharmacy comes with particular risks. The drugs treat different conditions. Each drug comes with contraindications . Some contraindications indicate that the drugs should not be used together at all, but in other instances the situation is less serious, and caution must be used. The question at hand is how often do such contraindications result in difficulties for the patient. There are situations where a patient will need to be prescribed multiple drugs to manage different conditions, and it is better medically to do so than to avoid potentially dangerous combinations. Medical staff are advised under such circumstances to be aware of the contraindications, and have a plan in place to manage any adverse effects that might occur.

This study will examine the…

Florida, the United tates and the broader world in particular is facing an energy crisis. Indeed, it is a battle and one with many fronts. There are a number of good reasons out there to find alternative energy. They include the increasing world population, the pervasive use of fossil fuels, concerns about those fossil fuels running out, pollution associated with those fossil fuels and access to energy for everyone. Indeed, there is an increased need for energy that departs from the dirty energy sources like coal and petroleum. Beyond that, these new sources need to be sustainable. This grant proposal covers precisely such an energy source and it is a source that can greatly improve the quality of life and energy costs of people in the southwestern part of Florida much like it is already doing for people around the rest of the…

Teaching in America

Grant and Murray's Teaching in America: The Slow Revolution is a book with two faces. On one hand it is a book of history, covering the developments in education in general over the past century; here it is at times fascinating, at times tedious, but always informative. On the other hand, the book points to one overruling "Slow Revolution" which the authors describe as the solution to our nation's (and the world's) educational problems. While the former topic is simply a recounting of established history, the latter requires evidence and argument in support of the authors' claim; this evidence comes primarily from interviews with teachers. Hence, this book spans two realms of academia: as the researchers themselves state, "Our research is both sociological and historical" (8). This paper will investigate the credibility of the authors' latter claim, which is based on a rather isolated set of evidence,…

They were first organized 144 years ago and have been concentrating on delivering ground breaking educational services to stakeholders. ("Annual Financial eport," 2011) To determine if the university is fiscally sound requires carefully examining their financial statement and audit reports. This will be accomplished by studying the employee pension plan, analyzing how economic conditions will impact future growth, reviewing the treatment of federal grants and comparing how endowments are calculated. Together, these different elements will highlight the financial strength of the university and the way this is impacting the quality of services that are provided.

There are several different areas of the budget that would need further explanation to include: more detailed information on the payroll costs, professional services, operating costs, overtime hours and capital outlays.

Daughter of Time

"Everybody knows that Richard III, the last of the Plantagenet kings, murdered his two nephews. But everybody could be wrong -- according to Scotland Yard's Inspector Grant, who studies 500-year-old evidence to try to determine who really killed these two heirs to the British throne…"

(Harris, 2001, p. 1).

On the initial page of author Josephine Tey's book, The Daughter of Time, the author (whose real name is Elizabeth MacKintosh and who also uses the name Gordon Daviot) embraces the quote, "Truth is the Daughter of Time." That is an appropriate use of the proverb because much of the discussion of Tey's fictitious historical novel centers on the concepts of truth and perception when it comes to King Richard III.

Summary of the Book

One of Tey's characters that she uses in this novel, and in several of her other books, Alan Grant, is an inspector with…

Judge roderick concluded that the Compulsory Process Clause of the Sixth Amendment does not give a defendant the right to require immunization of a witness, but that such a right is "probably" contained in the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment. Id. However, he declined to accord the defendants the benefit of this "probable" Fifth Amendment right to defense witness immunity for two reasons. First, he ruled that the defendants' motion was untimely, since it should properly have been made at the beginning of the trial. Second, he concluded that defense witness immunity would be available only to secure testimony that was material and exculpatory and that the defendants had not shown that any of the witnesses for whom they sought immunity would give material, exculpatory testimony."

Emma serves as a support for Tante Lou and she is the one that provides Grant with the compelling image of a hog when she declares that they want them to "kill a hog...

She has provided the Guidry's with years of service, which seems to be a motivating factor in Guidry's decision. Emma's influence cannot be overlooked because she is person that wants Grant to begin removing the racial oppression that has existed in the community.

Grant believes at this point that dignity is something he can only find -- and is supposed to find -- outside of his community and away from the relationships and ties that he has there, including his maternal bond to his aunt.

As the novel progresses, however, Grant begins to realize how necessary the community is to his own happiness, if not his very survival. This transformation is not complete by the end of the novel, but Grant has begun to change or at least question many of his beliefs, including his attitude towards God and religion, and certainly in his attitude, hopes, and feelings for Jefferson. Perhaps most telling in Grant's search for dignity and identity within his community is his relationship with Vivian. Though she is still married and the relationship is therefore…

Welfare Reform Act of 1996

Welfare Reform Act of 1996 was signed into law by President Clinton on August 22, 1996. This law changes how government financial assistance is administered including: changing federal funding to states from an open-ended entitlement to a series of capped block grants allocations; sets time limits on entitlements and cash assistance to welfare recipients; requires more welfare recipients to engage in job programs, and enforces collection of unpaid child support, and denies legal immigrants from collecting SSI and food stamps. The legislative goals of the Welfare Reform Act of 1996 was to reduce dependence, to reduce child poverty, and to reduce illegitimacy and strengthen marriage. This reform has been effective in meeting each of these goals.

The attempt at objective judgments seeps through -- IQ tests, grades, all require certain practices. Of course, some professors deviate from this formula, and may require portfolios or independent research in defiance of such conventions. But most methods of assessment suggest a certain kind of intelligence is required to succeed in university, and by implication, succeed in life. Most universities do not reward musical intelligence, kinesthetic intelligence, and even spatial intelligence to the degree they do quantitative ability and verbal ability. Even before entering the university, through secondary school and the admissions process, students likely feel pigeonholed and 'tracked.'

Ultimately, Grant may be remembered as one of America's best generals. He is still the only general in history to capture three separate armies, and he presided over Lee's surrender at Appomattox in April 1865. He was also a fair man who treated the Confederates well during their surrender. He was simply determined not to allow the South to be victorious. He sometimes misjudged his generals, and perhaps left some in power longer than they should have been, but ultimately he led the Army to victory, and was responsible for the final battles that laid waste to the Confederacy and led to the end of the war.
