some nations have adopted laws prohibiting interfaith marriage, especially
in contexts where theocracy rules, others yet are simple obstruction in
unity by social and cultural barriers. Marriage is surely one way to
undermine the perceived meaning of such barriers.
To this extent, "the first problem to be confronted by anyone
interested in bringing about a Hindu-Muslim theological dialogue would be
to motivate both sides to enter into such dialogue with openness and
seriousness. To have such a dialogue in a estern setting where dialogues
are in fashion nowadays is one thing; to have it in India, Pakistan, or
Bangladesh is quite another, and to bring it -about would require much
talent and commitment." (Swidler, 270) Here though, is presented something
of a remarkable challenge and simultaneous opportunity for those who have
chosen an interfaith marriage. In such contexts, where sometimes dangerous
hostility is likely to exist toward such a…

Pastoral counseling: An overview
Pastoral counselors today will inevitably come into contact with persons of widely varying cultural traditions. For example, when counseling someone regarding how to care for an elderly parent with whom the family is now residing, the counselor must be aware that different cultures view the elderly in different ways. For some people, taking care of older parents is considered to be a necessary obligation -- the extended family rather than the nuclear family is prioritized. The counselor will not necessarily alter his advice, but it should be nuanced and informed with cultural awareness.
In other matters, such as dealing with diverse religious groups and matters of sexual orientation, personal desire may seem to come into conflict with scripture. The counselor may state the position of his faith, but still approaches the client with a loving and open…

The police or law enforcement officers act as the initial contact between criminals and the criminal justice system. The main function of these law enforcement officers and agencies is to maintain law and order and protect the community from crime. One of the essential elements that enable the police to achieve their objectives, which is also considered as the backbone of policing, is patrol. As the central feature of police operations, majority of the law enforcement officers are assigned to patrol in order to deliver numerous police services to the public. The importance of patrol in police operations is also evident in the fact that patrol officers and patrol cars are the most visible symbols of law enforcement. The other aspects include the fact that patrol officers are the most significant decision makers in policing and the experience of patrol being a formative portion of an officer's career. The…

To efficiently exercise ethical group therapy a therapist should internalize the morals, values, and behavioral make-up of each person within the group. Whereas group therapy has the tendency to attend to interactional and interpersonal, specific therapy generally looks at the intra-psychic. Group therapy has actually been shown to have efficient treatment advantages in the treatment with different mental and individual issues.
Principles in Counseling
Principles in counseling can be specified as: "the concepts of conduct regulating a specific individual or a group."

Another Country: Navigating the Emotional Terrain of Our Elders
Aging is one of the most important social, political, and economic issues in America at the moment.
People are living longer, but they are not necessarily living better.
It is important to have new models of aging that bring families together rather than condone or enable isolation and alienation.
There are cultural differences in attitudes toward the elderly.
Generation gaps also reveal points of divergence and reveal fractures in inter-generational communication.
Structure: Book is divided into three main parts comprising ten chapters, plus a prelude, an introduction, and a conclusion.
Part I. "Landscape of Age"
Chapter 1. "Another Country"
The author uses visiting another country as a metaphor for aging.
Example: When we try to communicate with someone from another country, there are cultural and language barriers. It is the same way when we speak to someone of…
Education Advocacy Issues
Massive institutional racism and structural inequalities still exist in the United States, especially in housing, public education and the criminal justice system in inner city areas. In every urban area, the quality of education available to poor and minority students is demonstrably worse by any measure than that of their white peers in the suburbs. This type of institutional discrimination is not caused by genetic or cultural deprivation but by the fact that the U.S. has always been and remains a highly segregated and unequal society based on race and social class. Of course, this violates the liberal, egalitarian and meritocratic ideals on which the nation was (supposedly), but after all, the U.S. managed to survive with slavery for almost a hundred years after its founding, and with legal segregation and disenfranchisement of blacks for a hundred years after that.

Health Care eform
Since his presidential campaign, President Obama has placed a priority on health care reform. He has consistently restated his intention to increase the public's access to quality health care, reduce overall costs, and improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery. The potential outcome would be public insurance options and new legal requirements for insurance companies. For example, companies would not be able to refuse or discontinue an individual's coverage based on preexisting conditions. The estimated cost for these health care reforms could be anywhere from $1 trillion to 1.2 trillion dollars over the next ten years. Clearly, many of these proposed changes can be viewed as positive, especially for Americans who do not have adequate health coverage or have lost coverage due to medical conditions. The major change resulting from this process is that public money, some from taxes, would be used underwrite the cost of…

Unfortunately, the scenario in which there are absentee fathers in a family has occurred far too frequently in contemporary society. This issue is more prevalent among certain social groups than among others. For instance, in communities in which there is poverty, substance abuse, high incidences of crime, and accordantly high rates of teenage pregnancy, there is a systematic destruction of the nuclear family. As such, the occurrence of absentee fathers is prevalent in these conditions, which do not infrequently affect African-Americans and other historic minority groups. There are several issues that absentee fathers create. Some of these include the fact that women have to take on the role that was traditionally assigned to men -- acting as the provider -- and become saddled with the responsibility of behaving as both the mother and a father. Additionally, children grow up with a lack of stable male presences in their…

Project management is a systematic methodology of attaining aims and objectives in a given criteria for instance time and budget spread on number of years. Project management has been behind every major project for instance man landing on the moon to polio campaigns throughout a country (Gray C and Larson, 2008).
The subject of project management has grown and blossomed over a number of years. It dates back to cavemen. The cavemen would hunt in groups for a successful hunt. The Egyptians used some form of project management to construct the pyramids of Giza we see today. This is a clear instance of how viably project management has been used during the past centuries (Gray C and Larson, 2008).
In case of modern era, the project management has been monumental in development of industries and other fields. It makes sure that a project is completed under a given deadline. This…

Acceptance of Jews in 18th Century Europe
ACCEPTANCE OF JEWS IN EIGHTEENTH CENTURY EUROPE
The eighteenth century brought a sea change to philosophical, scientific, cultural, and social thought. This era, termed the Enlightenment, signaled a step toward freedom from dogmatic ignorance. When the floodgates opened in central and western Europe, England, and the Colonies, social norms and governance were critically examined, questioned, and often rejected.[footnoteRef:1] The thrust was toward rationality and it invited unprecedented consideration of religion and governance. Of the many groups who stood to be impacted by the Age of Reason, none were so visibly marginalized and stigmatized as European Jews. [1: C.W. Routledge, "The Status of Jewry in Europe," Chapter 41 [companion pdf], in Routledge: Taylor & Francis Group, UK, accessed March 11, 2011, http://cw.routledge.com/textbooks/0415236614/companion/pdf/41.pdf.]

Aviation at the College Level
The purpose of this paper is to examine a business, other than a federal business, that is involved with aviation. Further to examine the training, certification and funding and to identify the issues faced in those areas as well as identify the sources of funding.
According to recent reports the aviation industry is in a slump. Dr. Mike arker, associate dean of the School of Aeronautics recently stated that:
Typically, when the industry rebounds, it comes on even stronger."
arker also said that:
The industry will need more people than ever before. Airport management and aviation planning will continue to be a vital field."
According to the report which was located on Florida Technology University:
An airport is one of the top two or three economic engines in a community in terms of jobs, tax revenues and dollars it brings into that area."

Faculty is Remote, but not Detached," published on the web by The New York Times, opportunities for online teachers are booming at universities across the country. Improvements in technology like Web streaming and Internet bulletin boards have made the Internet experience of learning more rewarding, effective, and popular than ever for undergraduates and graduate students alike. According to the most recent data available: "nearly 3.5 million students were taking online courses in the fall of 2006" (Tahmincioglu 2008).
This has brought individuals from outside the traditional university community and widened the range of professors students are exposed to in an educational setting. For example, a former marketing executive who "never dreamed she would be able to teach at a college" but who has "fallen in love with teaching" can continue her regular work, post her lessons online, and hold virtual office hours (Tahmincioglu 2008). This is also a reduced cost…
clergy psychotherapists are noted by Haug (1999) to encounter a complex mix of ethical dilemmas as a result of their dual roles. The pastoral counselors deal with several boundary issues as well as potential roles conflicts in the professional life. In this paper we evaluate these boundary issues as well as the potential role conflicts that the pastoral counselors face in their professional capacities.
The boundary issues and role conflict faced by clergy psychotherapists
The work of Haug (1999) has indicated that the acknowledgement of power as authority as well as the maintenance of clear as well as safe professional boundaries appears to be very complex issues facing the clergy psychotherapists. The boundary issues as well as role conflicts are noted to be rampant in a legacy that is marked with dual training, lack of sufficient attention to the necessary professional ethics and differing levels of role expectations as well…

Raymond Carver has a tradition of creating stories centered on isolation, helplessness, and trust. The short story "Fever" is no different in this regard. Both isolation and trust are common themes throughout this short story. More importantly, Carver reiterates the importance of resolving the problem of isolation before it becomes a contentious issue in regards to an individual's behavior.
"Fever," is a very interesting short story as it depicts real world situations within the context of a fictional story. The story centers around an individual named Carlyle who has recently been abandoned by his former love, Eileen. Both Eileen and Carlyle had two children together during their relationship. What is interesting is that Eileen abandoned many of her responsibilities and duties as a parent, while leaving Carlyle to do most of the parenting on his own. Furthermore, Eileen left Carlyle with a former colleague of his to pursue an…
Healthcare Workers and Disasters
Disasters due to extreme environmental conditions, technology, or mass violence often necessitate intervention by healthcare workers. Therefore, it is important that healthcare workers are adequately prepared for the potential of disaster through appropriate training and education. This preparedness allows healthcare workers to approach and deal with any emerging issues effectively and adapt to drastically changing situations and demands. Furthermore, the roles of healthcare workers also often significantly change during or after disasters.
One of the most important issues with regards to healthcare workers in the context of disasters is preparedness. Hsu et al. (2006) recognized that there is a critical need for disaster training for all levels of healthcare training that is effective and evidence based. This training should include the development of specific guidelines and standards in training health care workers to respond to major events (Hsu et al., 2006). In response to this need…

credentialing and regulatory problems encountered by Advanced Practice Nursing professionals (APNs). Further, it will explore the regulatory obstacles they come across, together with historical aspects that played a role in APN development to the level they are, at present.
The major issues identified are education, specialty practice, practice scope, reimbursement, regulation, credentialing issues, titling, legal status, and prescriptive authority. The similarity between all the above-listed issues is that all are entrenched in regulatory terms, making it hard for advanced practice nurses to take advantage of nursing role development (Knight, 2010). Differences arise if one fails to integrate and deal with the aforementioned issues collectively, and support a collaborative bond with the remaining regulated disciplines in healthcare, at state as well as national levels. Further, these issues remain critical to APN nursing practice. Unlike ever before, APNs' profession has evolved in a new era where several diverse challenges and…

Jesus learn from John the Baptist? How is the movement of Jesus different from John's?
According to Rausch, John the Baptist is "clearly a historical figure" who was not necessarily preaching anything new or revelatory (p. 1). John the Baptist works within the prophetic tradition and his teachings were rooted in Jewish Old Testament philosophy, eschatology, and theology. When Jesus went to see and meet with John the Baptist, the event "changed his life," according to Rausch (p. 4). John the Baptist may have so strongly influenced and impacted the young Jesus because of the content of his teachings: the emphasis on impending judgment and/or doom for a sinful and unrepentant humanity. Rausch also claims that there is historical and textual evidence linking Jesus's own ministry with the teachings of John. There are five main similarities between the core elements of John's teachings and Jesus's preaching, according to Rausch. The…
One of the most significant issues in correctional management is the effectiveness of juvenile correctional facilities. Generally, juvenile correctional facilities were established to provide effective treatment and rehabilitation of juveniles. In the past few years, the ability of these facilities to achieve their primary objective has been an issue of major concern to correctional administrators and management. Actually, correctional administrators currently agree that effective treatment and rehabilitation of juveniles will not be achievable in an environment that does not guarantee the security and safety of juveniles being served. As a major issue in correctional management and administration, the importance of this issue has been the subject of increased study by various researchers. Examples of these research initiatives include studies by Darryl Olson and Michael Baglivio as well as Patrick Bayer and David E. Pozen's work.

Public Health Emergencies
When it comes to public health, there are two main issues: basic control of general public health concerns, and what takes place during an emergency. The United States and other countries have recently made some changes in how public health emergencies are handled, mostly in response to disasters that have been seen on their home soil or in other areas of the world. A public health emergency can come from a natural disaster, a terrorist act, or in other ways, but being prepared for it is important. It can also be difficult, because it is unpredictable and cannot be accurately planned for in many cases.

Challenges of Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) to law enforcement
Law enforcement agencies view the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) the most harmful street gang in the U.S. The aggressive nature of MS-13 members have led to a variety of killings and terrible beatings. Various trials held in New York and Maryland have led to significant jail terms even extending to life imprisonment for MS-13 members. The FBI was first attracted by violence, but proof of the gang's escalating level of organization has drawn public attention. Organization is an indicator of a future where MS-13 is will be a transnational network of criminals extending from the United States to suburban communities in a multitude of U.S. towns (Mandel, 2013).
Despite functions of violence, it is worrying to note that MS-13 movement is improving its structure and organization. Many major security experts are comparing it to the illegal groups of the 50s…

Federal laws and regulations provide a framework for addressing the needs of special education students. In addition to these laws and regulations, how has literature shaped the education communities' practice of special education in schools? Support your response with a theoretical perspective.
When it comes to any matter of major compliance, there is seemingly two different realms to what happens in the field after new guidelines shape out. Indeed, there is simple compliance with the law. At the bare minimum, this is something that all teachers and administrators must follow. Anything less than that is a clear violation and thus must be remediated. However, anyone that knows about such situations knows that simple compliance with the law is not enough. There are also the ethical and evidence-based practice guidelines that are (or are not) put in force by those same teachers and administrators (Teach-Nology, 2017).

.....neuroscience is one of the most common scientific field of study that basically involves study of the nervous system. Most of the jobs in neuroscience involves dealing with some problems that do not necessarily involve working in the lab. An example of such jobs that interests me is neuropsychology, which is an area in neuroscience that focuses on the science of brain-behavior relationships. I find clinical neuropsychology as an interesting field of neuroscience since it combines concepts of psychology in the study of the nervous system, particularly brain-behavior relationships. Given the combination of neuroscience and psychology, clinical neuropsychology will enable me to feel empathy for my patients/clients when addressing their issues (Ogden, 2012). In light of my passion for this field, brain functions and neuroscience that I find interesting are neurobiological theories that explain dysfunctions in language, behavior networks, vision, memory, and emotion. These brain functions and neuroscience are interesting…
In one of her television shows, Oprah Winfrey decided to give away Pontiac G6 Sedans to her audience. From an accounting perspective, its important to determine whether the value of these cars was taxable. Following a comprehensive analysis of taxable and nontaxable income, the cars awarded to the TV audience should have been included in their gross income and subject to federal taxation. According to federal taxation prizes and awards in the form of goods and services must be included in an individual’s income at their fair market value (Bureau of Internal Revenue, 2009). Federal taxation laws stipulate that if an individual wins a prize in a television program, radio quiz program, lucky number drawing, beauty contest or any other event, he/she must incorporate it in his/her income. Based on these taxation regulations, the TV audience should have included the Pontiac G6 Sedans in their gross income and…
1. Is this a customer service problem? Why or why not?
A well designed customer service that is satisfactory is essential in business progress. Customers are driven by the satisfaction of their need from the market. In the scenario, indeed, there is a customer service problem. For the first reason that the customers are not supplied with homogenous products across the market of the Handy Andy company. Some customers are charged more for similar products sold at lesser prices in different states. This can bring customer-company mistrust which is not good for success of business.
The second issue is that the personnel handed the responsibility of installing the acquired compactor by the customers are very impolite and unprofessional in the manner that they conduct their duties. It is the realm of their role to satisfactorily make the customers aware of how to operate the compactor to avoid any…
Operational esponse and Management
The Tokyo subway Sarin gas attack in 1995 elicited a critical incident response based on immediate public safety. There were nearly 700 people taken to the hospital by ambulance, and five thousand more arrived at hospitals through other means (Ogawa, Yamamura, & Ando, et al., 2000). Most of those individuals were actually well but frightened, which made it difficult to distinguish who was truly sick. Still, 17 patients were found to be critical, with nearly 40 more deemed serious (Ogawa, Yamamura, & Ando, et al., 2000). Additionally, almost 1000 more were moderately or minimally ill, and were experiencing problems with their vision. Those who were mildly affected were released later in the day because they had sufficiently recovered from their vision problems by that time. Most other patients went home the next day, with a few remaining hospitalized for a week. Eight people died on the…

team consists of a group of individuals who share a common goal or a common reason for joining the group (Chapter 9 p.2). A college classroom resembles a formal group more than a team because the individual group members do not necessarily share a common goal and typically, they are all interested in their own individual goals and the benefits they hope to achieve by their participation rather than sharing an common interest or goal that they hope to pursue for the benefit of the group (Chapter 10 p.5).
There are only very loose parallels between work teams and college classroom groups. For example, college classrooms may evolve through a forming stage (Chapter 9 p.6); and individual members of the class may establish roles and identities (Chapter 9 pp. 8-9) such as contributors and non-contributors to discussions. Otherwise, college classrooms share little with traditional teams, mainly because teams tend to…
technology s-curve analysis is useful to assess the developmental lifecycle stage of technology. The term s-curve refers to the share that the progress of the lifecycle will be seen as on a graph where the x axis is time and the y axis is performance White & Bruton, 201). The line resembles an s, as shown in figure 1 below
Figure 1; the Technology S-Curve
The curve is useful as it will help to assess where technology is in the life cycle, and whether there are likely to be major improvements, or if the product is moving towards maturity if it will be vulnerable to substitute technology White & Bruton, 2010). New technology that will be come a substitute is likely to start its lifecycle during the accelerated growth period of the exiting technology, so it is ready to become the substitute when the current technology reaches maturity. Understanding the…
(a) Key issues to remember in managing technology substitution include the way in which the consumers that buy the technology use it, and how the new products may be perceived in terms of acceptability (White & Bruton, 2010). This means looking not only at current needs, but at potential future consumer needs in order to ensure that the technology meets with market needs. Firms need to ensure potential substitutions will include the ability to satisfy needs and offer sufficient additional, but desired or useful benefits that will justify the consumer switching for a product that is likely to have a higher cost, and may include some inconvenience in terms of adapting to the changes in the technology (Kotler & Keller, 2011).
(b) When a firm manages technology substitution the process should begin before the technology is needed, so there is time for it to undergo the slower development stages before it is needed and can present with the enhanced performance the point the technology needs to be used as a substitution. The process should include focus on the market needs and forecasting consumer demand, as well as the technological capabilities and developments (White & Bruton, 2010). The process should also be undertaken in a manner that will protect the developments with patents etc...
(c) Managing technological substitution is important as now product will last forever; even lifecycle extension strategies will only prolong the lifecycle for a limited period of time. In technology where there is a highly competitive environment this is especially true. If the firm wishes to survive they will need to have product in place to act as substitutes, if they do not they will loose their customers to
Environmental Issues in eusing Cleaning Solvents
Solvent recycling depicts the process of taking dirty and used solvents, cleaning them to return a pure form of the solvent or any other acceptable form. It encompasses fractionating and distillation of the used solvents placed in a solvent recycler (Shen, 2013). Nationwide pollution prevention program have focused on reducing solvent wastes. The use of solvents occurs as a vital element in water and air pollution, making it a prominent contributor of hazardous waste. Depletion of the ozone layer has depicted the impact of chlorinated solvents. Increased awareness and calls for environmental protection have stimulated the adoption of ways in reducing solvent wastes.
Environmental conservation and cost reduction emanate as the significant benefits of this technique. Organizations can take advantage of the recovery of solvents through the distillation processes. Solvent recycling also poses various disadvantages that include required capital for purchasing recycling equipment and…

moking is a hazardous habit that has the ability to greatly affect the health of the smoker and those that are close to them. The purpose of this discussion is to investigate smoking and lung disease. The discussion will focus on possible community health nursing interventions/teaching strategies. We will also use Orem's nursing model to describe the community, its health issue/problem, and proposed interventions.

The Gun Control Debate & Gun Control Legislation
With reference to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees the right to the lawful possession of firearms to private citizens as well as with reference to law & economic journals, the paper will explore the gun control debate and the network of related issues. People who are not in favor of the use of guns and favor austere gun control legislation often argue that guns do not kill people; people kill people. People who are law abiding and moral have guns because it is their right; people who are of weak character and lack ethics have guns because it is their right. Gun possession is a fact of life making gun control legislation and regulation an absolute necessity; it is not the job of the law to judge a citizen's character, but rather it is the job of the law…

economic downturn which has gripped the United States since 2008 has greatly affected my life as well as the lives of those around me, and does not appear to be improving very soon. To make things worse, the most badly injured Americans in this crisis have been young people ages 18-30, those just entering the workforce. My community has seen its own crisis, with local government unable to sustain itself with so many stores closing and fewer property taxes paid. Despite the joy of finishing high school and moving on to college next year, I often worry about the state of America's economy and I wonder when a sense of stability for my generation will be found.

Race After the Civil War
lack or white, which is the color of your skin?
Some time in history, the color of a person's skin had been an essential element in his life's journey. To be socially accepted, people sees to it that you have the right skin color. ut which is the right color? Does there exist a right color of skin? This issue seems to be a very narrow and senseless matter that our ancestors were implicated centuries and years ago. Especially after the Civil War, the element of race became an issue in every aspect of their daily lives.
Unfortunate to the discrimination of race in the society of man in America after the Civil War are the black colored people. They were considered and grouped among the minorities who were prohibited with equal rights, not by law, but by human nature of men. lack colored people…

Starting a New Business
There are several issues that one need to consider in starting a new business. These issues relate to marketing research, competitive analysis, and financial matters. Below, we define some of these issues on detail.
To finish my projects I contacted over ten professors at our university and other institutions, and have obtained valuable advice from them. I was fortunate enough to receive the valuable advise from two of my family friends, who I interviewed about the issues of opening a new business. One of the family friends that I interviewed is Mr. Arshadi, who is self-employed and the other family friend, Mr. Ghomeshi, is a manager at a company. I also looked at several Internet resources to find the useful information about opening a new business.
Based on the research, I was able to find the following issues that are important in opening a new business.…

Over the past 3 decades, crime has continued to be a major issue that has attracted huge public concern characterized with discussion and action that are usually unbalanced and not likely to lessen crime rates. The public concern has also been accompanied by political action and major public expenditure to reduce such incidents. Political discussion and actions as well as public expenditure have played a major role in the reduction of crime rates in the recent past. ecent reports have indicated that crime rates have sharply declined despite the lack of consensus on how to deal with criminal activity. Actually, by the beginning of the 20th Century, crime rates had declined to their lowest possible levels in a generation.
The recent declines in crime rates indicate that law enforcement organizations are at important junctures in their initiatives to deal with criminal activity and further reduce crime rates. Despite the…

Sociological Issues of Our Times
Self compassion can actually play an integral role in stress management. Self compassion involves considering one's self and dealing with it in such a way that one is able to make allowances, and to treat one's self in an advantageous way. To that end self-compassion certainly decreases stress while bolstering physical health. People who take the time to treat themselves well are able to be compassionate and kind to themselves. Therefore, when things go awry or when they make mistakes, they do not indulge in lengthy negative feelings of guilt or melancholy that function as punishments. Instead, they are able to react in a way that is more positive, and which helps to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. There is a definite correlation between such negative emotions and physical health. People who work or live in stressful environment typically incur physical…

Ethics in the Helping Professions
egardless of what specific profession a practitioner is engaged in, there are certain malpractice vulnerabilities that are germane to industries in which people seek the help of others. One of the most eminent of such vulnerabilities, and possibly the one that most frequently results in litigation, is miscommunication, which is an integral component of customer service and is at the heart of every practitioner's business. Far too often, practitioners leave themselves vulnerable to claims of malpractice by failing to communicate effectively with customers. This simple mistake can lead to a variety of exacerbating situations including the formation of unrealistic expectations to misunderstandings regarding the results and manner of treatment and may lead to customers believing that practitioners have deliberately mistreated them (No author, 2010).

Change Management for WalMart
The commercial environment in which firms compete is forever changing. Internal and external forces stimulate a need for change; firms that fail to change and adapt are likely to stagnate and suffer as a result of their resistance to change. The aim of this paper is to look at an organization which needs to change, considering what change is needed, the lifecycle of change, including consideration of continuous and discontinuous change, and different types of change agents.
The Need for Change at WalMart
WalMart is the largest retailer in the U.S.; it is also the largest private employer with an estimated 1.3 million employees (Workplacefairness.org, 2014). The firm places a high level of reliance in the employees, but despite this the firm appears to have ongoing problems with its employee relations; the firm is regularly accused of discrimination, excessively low wages, and unfair practices (Halkias,…

Civilization and its Discontents
ritten in 1929 and published in 1930, Civilization, and its Discontents offers a somewhat pessimistic view of human nature and human society. Freud extends his theory of the individual's intra-psychic conflicts, such as between ego and id, and between the conscious and the unconscious mind, to the public arena of civil society. In this way, Freud comes to define human civilization as the cause of intense conflict, both between the individuals within the social community and between the individual and society. According to Freud, the claims of the individual and the claims of the community are always in conflict and, in order for civilization to exist, "civilized man has exchanged a portion of his possibilities of happiness for a portion of security" (63). The result, for the individual is the surrendering of most of their instinctual drives and urges for sexual and personal freedom in…

It is an unfortunate fact that many Supreme Court Judges have proven themselves to be somewhat lacking in ethical conduct, creating a conflict between their office as guardians of justice and fairness and their own interests to promote their own agendas for greater power and wealth. (Cheberenchick, 2013). Although many of the misconduct cases that have recently seen the light are personal in nature, some are also driven by financial and political pressures, as in the case of Alabama. In this state, judges are required to raise large sums of money to compete in judicial campaigns. Significantly, political pressure is also particularly prevalent during judicial campaigns to overrule jury decisions and upholding capital punishment. One might therefore question the entire system for its disproportionate focus on pleasing those with wealth and power rather than upholding justice for those who are most desperately in need. (Cheberenchick, 2013). Clearly, reforms are…

Five Questions on International Business
What are the approaches international managers seek to understand when instituting change in the international arena?
Change in the international arena may be more complex than in the home nations due to the wider variety of influences and variables that may be present. When looking at the different approaches that international managers may seek to understand in order to institute change, the managers will benefit from understanding different models or frameworks that provide a way of examining the differences that exist and assessing the way in which they may impact on the way change is determined and implemented at an organizational and local level.
One of the first models that may be useful is Hofstede's Cultural Dimensions. This is a model which provides a framework that facilitates an understanding of the cultural differences that exist between people of different regions and nations (Dellner,…

estitution for Henry Stewart
Henry Stewart is one of the most valued clients for the company since he is a renowned real estate agent who has referred many clients to this company. Stewart recently has trees and shrubs in his home sprayed for insects by the two new company staff you assigned to work in his residence. However the assigned workers killed over $2,000 in prize fish since they did not cover the pond when spraying trees and shrubs for insects. Stewart has since written letter in which he is terminating his service and threatens legal action if he does not receive restitution for his dead fish. Moreover, he has posted a scathing commentary on the company's blog in which he requested for remuneration publicly.
The accident at Stewart's residence was probably fueled by the fact that you sent new workers alone,…

Paternity leave has emerged as one of the debatable issues in today's society, especially because of the changing nature of the modern workplace. Generally, many new fathers tend to return to work after celebrating the birth of their newborns. Fathers barely take time off after the birth of their children despite of the need to take paternity leave. Actually, based on the findings of a survey on working fathers by the Center for Work and Family at Boston College, fathers rarely take time off after the birth of their children (Hall, 2013). Even in situations where men are offered paid paternity leave, most of them won't take it mainly because of the stigma associated with such measures. The issue of paternity leave has generated numerous arguments and counter-arguments between proponents and opponents respectively. An analysis of these arguments demonstrates that paternity leave is vital to promote the involvement of both…

EMS single-tier response (ST) or a multi-Tier response (MT) is optimal for a community?
While EMS are present in every community, each community has different needs and the response of the EMS should be tailored in a community-specific fashion. For example, some communities are far more dependent upon EMS to provide critical services because of their demographics. A large city such as New York will often have more critical incidents due to violence or safety hazards. Also, the logistics of mobility within a city can mean that a single-tiered response (ST) is more appropriate. At the other extreme, a rural area, because of a lack of medical resources such as nearby hospitals, can also benefit from a ST, given that aspects of primary care and treatment may need to be given immediately on the scene due to the lack of available resources at point of care. In terms of a…

Human resource issues in health care
In a more dynamic modern day environment, the pressure onto the health care sector grows exponentially, and this is the result of countless factors, such as changing life styles with direct impacts upon the quality of health, or the advancement of technology which also impacts life, health and the provision of health care.
In order for the health care sector to be able to respond to the multiple and rapid changes in the environment, it has to be a solid sector within. And an essential component to this strong sector is represented by the quality of the people within the system. In this order of ideas, a question is being posed relative to the human resource aspects which raise issues within the current system, and which also have the potential to raise issues in the future.
At the most basic level, the human resource…

Contractual Factors for Verbal Promises
In the case pertaining to the employee of the firm Addum, Upp & Paymee, it does not appear that Maurice legally enforce the promise of his superior. In ascertaining whether or not it is possible for him to do so, it is vital to denote the express language of the promise that Maurice's boss made to him. Specifically, Maurice's superior told him, "If you stay with us, I promise that next year you will receive a promotion with a 50% raise, and a 5-year contract." The language of this statement is so important to its legality because the very definition of the term contract is a legally enforceable exchange of a promise for an act. By this definition, it would appear that Maurice's boss had issued what would have amounted to a verbal contract, since he issued a promise for the act of giving Maurice…
Gun violence in America has always been a great concern to communities, families and law enforcement officials. But in recent years gun violence has received a great deal more publicity and public concern because of the mass shootings -- particularly in schools -- that the media focuses on in great detail. In other words, a law-abiding family living in a quiet small town in Vermont is impacted emotionally when a gunman enters a school in California or Connecticut and murders innocent children. This paper identifies recent trends in mass shootings, potential laws that would attempt to keep guns out of the hands of mentally disturbed and violent individuals, and how the National Rifle Association (NRA) uses unethical tactics to promote its paranoid obsession that government is out to take guns away from law-abiding gun owners.

International Law on Terrorism
The purpose of this essay is to highlight and discuss pertinent issues regarding international law and its lack of ability to administer without shortcomings. Specifically, the impact of terrorism will be discussed to highlight the holes in international law and how it ultimately fails to fully practice in a just and fair manner. To support this argument, the definition of terrorism will be discussed. The difficulty in assigning a proper quality to this word stands at the root of many of the legal problems associated with its principles. This essay will then discuss the United Nations and its role in international law. Finally the issues of global culture and evolution will be highlighted to demonstrate the impossibility of a global law that can justly decide on what is and what is not terrorism.

Employers' ole During Union Organization Campaigns
Union organizing has become a major issue in today's working environment because of increased efforts by workers to promote suitable conditions in the workplace and obtain compensation that suits their contributions to the organization. Even though the number of unionized employees or membership of labor unions has declined significantly in the past few years, unionization is still an important component of today's labor force. As employees continue to join labor unions to advocate for their welfare in the workplace, the role of employers during union organization campaigns has been a slightly controversial issue. The controversy relating to this issue is attributable to the tendency by company management to attempt undertaking measures that defeat the union during union organization campaigns. However, the National Labor elations Act defines the role employers should play during union organization campaigns. This paper examines whether employers should sack their employees…

Issue: Retailers going global
For United States together with European retailers within a still-troubled economic climate, the key to develop could be as difficult to attain as it can be difficult to disregard. Money-strapped consumers are, even now, not opening their own wallets, as confirmed by the decline in American retail product sales this past year. Simultaneously, lifestyle standards all over the world have already been increasing for a long time. Certain countries and parts that, at one time, functioned primarily as suppliers of cheap-labor together with raw materials within the global economic climate now feature engaging national marketplaces with powerful sales of the products created by United states, British, as well as other Western retailers. Within this atmosphere, increasingly more retailers of all sizes and shapes happen to be going overseas to maintain their expansion. And it is an open playing area. Besides the typical suspects, retailers have found…
Ethical Issues Surrounding Abortion
Notwithstanding the laws being passed in various states against a woman's right to chose to terminate her pregnancy, the position of this paper is that Roe v. ade is the law of the land and a woman has the ethical and moral right to decide to have an abortion. There are many positions for and against Roe v. ade, and there are many ethical issues that may be (and in many cases are) embraced on both sides of the issue. But the law of the land vis-a-vis a woman's right to the privacy -- regarding her own values -- when it comes to terminating a pregnancy has been determined by the High Court. As a nurse committed to fairness and ethics in healthcare issues, while I respect the rights of others to practice their own values in opposition to Roe v. ade, I am in support…

Current events of the environmental ethics
Some of the major current events concerning the environmental ethics are the issue of global warming. One of the leading researchers (in the causes and effects of climate change; and in the field of allergies) in Europe has discovered that the burning of the fossil fuel that has increased over the recent past has resulted into the increase of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide facilitates the growth of the ragweed- an invasive plant- moreover; the hay fever is triggered of by this plant's pollen grains. Both early and long seasons of allergy are caused by the bloom of the birch trees as a result of the warmer temperatures (White, 1967).

Utilitarian Abortion Considerations:
The utilitarian perspective applied to the abortion issue would focus on whether
permitting or prohibiting elective abortion would contribute more positively the interests of society Mill, 2003 p160). The principal difference between the utilitarian and deontological perspectives is that utilitarianism is wholly unconcerned with the underlying motivation for decisions. Whereas deontological formalism values the state of mind of the individual, utilitarianism focuses on the ultimate consequences of the act, irrespective of motivation Russell, 2002 p 99).
Within the utilitarian ethical perspective, rule utilitarianism would promote the choice associated with the overall benefit to others and to society if it were adhered to religiously in all circumstances, irrespective of isolated cases in which the rule produced a negative result Russell, 2002 p101-2). For example, in a society where relative birth and death rates were such that the continuation of society were in jeopardy, the utilitarian perspective might require…
(Dershowitz, 2002 p112).
Therefore, the contemporary utilitarian approach to morality in human life is to consider other definitions of "goodness" and "benefit" rather than equating morality with the interests of the greatest number. In many respects, that is the perspective exemplified by the modern American justice system (Dershowitz, 2002 p112). Under that view, the moral rightness or wrongness of elective abortion would seek to weigh the manner in which permitting abortions might benefit society and how that decision would affect all of the individuals directly involved in specific situations. If the initial assumption is that society is benefited by the respect for the autonomous rights of individuals to make personal decisions about abortion without interference from the state, utilitarianism would support the freedom to make that decision.
Under the act utilitarianism perspective, therefore, certain types of abortions (such as in cases of rape, incest, or medical necessity for the life of the mother)
