Stress and Place in Medical Sociology
Place, Neighborhoods & Networks
Stress, Coping and social supports
Stress is considered to be a health threatening circumstance that may arise from natural occurrences or the social roles (Brown, Phil. 2008: 118). The two aspects are seen to be interrelated source of stress in the sense that they cause undesirable changes in life events. The writer is concerned with the influence the resulting stress circumstance impact on the health of an individual. This leads to the determination of measures deployed to facilitate dealing with the stress. Coping and social supports are considered as the measures used to assist in dealing with the stressful situation. Coping and social supports are expected to yield positive effects against the stressful situation. The sought positive effects are however, not realized since the supports mechanisms in turn miss out on the idealistic measures to show empathy. The intricacies involved…… [Read More]
The United States is teeming with many people that are religious and/or spiritual in nature. In addition to that, many hospitals are owned and/or operated by religion-oriented groups with Jewish and Catholic hospitals being two of the more prevalent examples. These two facts in conjunction are very inter-related because many people associate healing with religion and many hospitals are beginning to actively embrace that in their operations and procedures. To be sure, not all people are religious and religious wishes and preferences, whatever they are, should be honored by a hospital caregiver irrespective of whether the beliefs of the hospital are different from the patient. However, for those where faith and healing working together are a mutual goal of the patient and the medical staff, scholarly research shows it can be embraced, if for no other reason that it keeps everyone positive and upbeat despite medical challenges. While…… [Read More]
Not only is this, but other members of the staff also had very bad behavior with the patients. The members of the staff were busy in their own issues mist of the time and no special attention and care was given to the patients. As compared with other patients like patients of cancer, tumor etc., psychiatric patients needs more attention and care because mental satisfaction and happiness is very essential for them. However, it seemed as if the psychiatric hospitals were unaware of this fact. The pseudo patients observed that the staff members had a frustrated attitude with them and they felt as if they have no value in the hospitals (osenhan, 1973).
A feeling of living in a cave developed in them while living in the hospitals' ward. The pseudo patients reported that rather than being friendly with them, the staff sometimes did unethical activities in front of them.…… [Read More]
There were squirrels there that were not scared of us the way the squirrels were at home and they would come right over to us for chips or pretzels or whatever other snacks we had. My grandmother said that our snacks were bad for them and she always gave us a bag of trail mix that had different kinds of nuts and dried fruits to give the squirrels. There were also some birds that always came around. They would stop about ten feet away from us and look at us sideways the way birds do. Then, they would take a few hops until they were a little bit closer, stop, and look at us sideways again. When they got very close to the hammock, we gave them some of the nuts and fruits too, and they would grab them and fly away for a little while before coming back for…… [Read More]
You sweep us away like a dream; we fade away suddenly like the grass" (4-5). Whites found comfort in God's sense of wrath, because they believed that God would protect them against potential slave insurrections, and act like a watch in the night, while slaves found comfort and protection in the night from God when they fled -- like the real Moses herself, Harriet Tubman. The mightiness and eternity of God dwarfed the created status of the slave-owner.
Status could be easily overturned, the Psalm warns, giving hope to slaves. Although whites might enjoy prosperity in the dwelling place of the plantation this was temporary: "In the morning it is green and flourishes; in the evening it is dried up and withered" (6). Those who show respect for God and who are truly pious will flourish in the long run, not simply Southerners who are cruel to their slaves and…… [Read More]
Carol Gillian's "omen's place in Man's Life Cycle" -- and Carol Gillian's place in modern feminism
Carol Gillian's text, "omen's place in Man's Life Cycle," excerpted from her book In a Different Voice, proposes a theory of female moral development in terms of what is often known that suggests that simply because women are different in their development from men does not mean that this uniquely female way of relating to the world in a moral fashion is lesser than the way that males have constructed the world. The interdependent way that women view the world, even if intrinsically different from men, does not mean that this aspect of female moral development should be viewed as a detriment -- this moral difference can be positive as well.
Too long, Gillian, women's sense of interdependence with others and moral sense of their duty to care can be a source of female…… [Read More]
Now, without thinking further, he would go home to his room. He would lie in the bed and finally, with daylight, he would go to sleep. After all, he said to himself, it's probably only insomnia. Many must have it.
This shows that the older waiter also needs a place to get himself through the night and experiences similar feelings as the old man. It is more though, than just the loneliness of not having a wife and someone to go home to. It is something deeper that bothers both the old man and the older waiter.
This something that bothers both the old man and the older waiter is explained by the concept of nada. As Hoffman (91) explains, "Although the old waiter is the only one to articulate the fact, all three figures actually confront nothingness in the course of the tale." The concept of nada essentially refers…… [Read More]
When Othello marries the white Desdemona, he presses his luck, and the tide of public favor turns against him. One of his most trusted friends turns against him and convinces him that Desdemona is having an affair with another of his friends. Othello is so blinded by jealousy and rage that he cannot see how his own band of men, his own "community" has turned against him and is pitting him against the people he used to trust the most. By the end of the play he is a beaten man, an outcast and a murderer, and his speech shows it. Shakespeare writes, "I am not valiant neither, / but every puny whipster gets my sword. / but why should honor outlive honesty? / Let it go all" (Shakespeare V, ii). Othello has been at the top, and he has reached the bottom, and the community no longer looks on…… [Read More]
Brewster Place in these stories thus stands at a point when change is taking place but has not yet been as thorough as it would be later.
The African-Americans now living in Brewster Place have largely migrated from the South. Indeed, Mattie Michael and several other characters arrive in Brewster Place from her parents' home in the South. hen Mattie leaves her parents' home, she is pregnant by a disreputable man named Butch Fuller. Mattie is part of the move to the North known as the Great Migration. There is no doubt that having children out of wedlock is a major cause of problems for minority women, however, as can be seen in this reference from the omen of Brewster Place:
She had gone to school until her sophomore year, when she had her first baby. And in those days you had to leave high school if you were pregnant.…… [Read More]
tourist attraction or a place of natural beauty: Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is a strange, paradoxical place. On one hand, it is a famous tourist attraction for honeymooners. Upon first glance, it is immediately obvious that the location is marketed much like the Empire State Building, the Eifel Tower, or any other sort of man-made tourist attraction. There is a gift shop near the Falls where one can buy pens, pencils, and other souvenirs. Yet all of this does not detract from the awesome power and raw beauty of nature exhibited by the Falls itself. Although the Falls is marketed and positioned like any other place designed to attract revenue to the area from tourists, it is still a worthwhile attraction.
At first glance, Niagara Falls is a sheer, overwhelming sheet of water. Even on the driest day, a visitor can feel the mist of the water on his or…… [Read More]
History has no place in the modern hospitality industry
Anachronistic Approaches to Modern Hospitality
The hospitality industry is a constantly growing and evolving trade. From one day to the next, minute changes to suit the needs of the patrons add up to become huge leaps and bounds from year to year. What was once commonplace may today be rare; what was once custom may now seem politically incorrect. The needs of the consumer change from day-to-day to reflect the fast-paced world, and if an establishment is to be successful it is vital that it grows and changes at the same pace as everyone else, if not one step ahead of the others. However, the question must be raised, does history have a place in the modern hospitality industry? Do the practices of days past have anything to offer today's managerial teams? Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question.…… [Read More]
Tablets Take Their Place in the PC Market
The invention of the personal computer (PC) has an impact on the technological progress of the world. The technology that came into force in the early 1980s began as bulky machines and has since evolved into light machines. Engineers have been trying to reshape and design personal computers to meet the needs of today's world. One has to realize that personal computers are there to stay as; long as humanity exists. The evolution of personal computers to other more powerful, lighter and potable machines relate to the evolution of the PC. Personal computers have been within the world for a long time. The very first type of PCs had their keyboards borrowed from typewriters.
However, individuals became inquisitive of the application of pens, which has been the most comfortable writing tool for long on PCs. Therefore, this led to the use of…… [Read More]
Heaven Earth Changes Places (5full pages + cover + works cited) hat effect war Vietnamese society
The Vietnam ar produced a profound impact upon the world at large, and upon the countries of the United States and of Vietnam in particular. There are several reasons why the effects of this martial encounter have reverberated for these two nations as much as they have -- the war lasted for several decades and involved numerous participants from both sides. As such, the clashing of cultures and of values that took place in this armed conflict could not help but to change the respective people and processes in both nations. For the U.S., this affair will forever be recollected as one of the few (if not the only) prolonged act of belligerence which it could not 'win'. For Vietnam, the war started the inexorable process of modernizing this quaint, simple rustic country and…… [Read More]
An individual's identity is largely shaped by the surroundings and the environment within which they were raised. It is the different aspects of an individual's surrounding that build up to determine their character. The fact that people are often raised in different places brings about some diversity in their identities. Towards this end, no two environments can be termed as being equal places, even if they are both within a single block. Lahiri (110) puts this aspect into perspective through her essay 'Rhode Island'. In her words, "the sense of environment radically shifting from mile to mile holds true throughout Rhode Island" - in which case she was making reference to the differences in social surroundings between Kingston (her family's initial place of residence) and Peace Deal (Lahiri 110). This text predominantly focuses on the relationship between 'place' and 'self', particularly the difference between space and place, the…… [Read More]
The greater the level of support and information a customer needs to make a decision on which product to buy, the more likely a retail channel will be the best approach. Conversely if a product is by nature highly commoditized or is so popular it has strong customer trust, digital channels are the best approach, as they will drop the cost per transaction (Edelman, 2010).
Companies who are excelling at bridging both strategies include Apple and BestBuy. Apple has both their walk-in stores for managing the demonstration of their latest products and also delivering excellent personalized service at their Genius Bars. They also have one of the best websites and digital channels for selling their products online as well. The balance of digital and retail or space and place, is excellent, and supports the Apple brand overall. BestBuy is another company who has successfully defined a strong mix of space…… [Read More]
However, there are also many market competitors who create colorful and inexpensive underwear with product logos. That is why Joe Boxer has made such an effort to distinguish itself through clever 'experiential' marketing techniques.
Question 3: What other strategies would be important to a company such as Joe Boxer?
Joe Boxer must define some clear market segments, and create clearer and more targeted marketing campaigns. For example, one distinct consumer demand segment is that of male college students. Promoting Joe Boxer dorm room furniture, creating arrangements with universities to create Joe Boxer school paraphernalia (such as sports sweatshirts), Joe Boxer coffee travel mugs with university Joe Boxer logos, and Joe Boxer co-branded university shower caddies are all possible items to sell to this demographic. This could be called the 'Joe U' line and would tap into school pride as well as affection for the brand.
Another possible arena for expansion…… [Read More]
This perspective gives us insight into the human condition in that it reveals that life experience is worth something and that notion is something young people simply cannot grasp fully. The young are more confident because they have not experienced as many hardships. For example, the younger waiter is "all confidence" (96) while the older waiter is not. In fact, he can relate to the old man more than he would like to. He knows there is nothing worse than going home to nothing. The younger waiter wants to hurry home while the older waiter feels as if he is doing a good deed by providing a "light for the night' (97) for the old man any anyone that might be like him. The older waiter knows why the clean and bright cafe is appealing to the people that come around at night and he does not mind keeping the…… [Read More]
In addition, I've heard a great deal of expressed frustration by the citizens of this country in regards to their rights, and the impact on their rights by the Patriot Act and regulations put in place by the Department of Homeland Security. Do these people not understand that their rights are nonexistent because of the authority of the state? Like a child and her parents, the state will do what it thinks is necessary for its people, and the people must obey."
Pretend for a moment," Augustine posed, "that the question at hand is not the sovereignty of the state, but the moral justice of the war. Do you agree that the decision to go to war was moral?" do not concern myself so much with morality," Hobbes countered, "as I do with the reason why these wars must continue to occur. Obviously, none is in favor of the death…… [Read More]
Waverley Park was designed for and reflected a demographic shift in Melbourne's population away from the inner suburbs to the south and east. Waverley Park was a symbol of, and a contributor to, the shift of the locus of power within the Victorian, later Australian, Football League from the clubs to the league, a change whose consequences are still being felt in 2000. The stadium reflected an Australian tradition of multi-sports facilities despite its genesis in Australian ules, both in its conception and subsequent development. Waverley Park played a significant role in the development of post-war Australian football, cricket and baseball. In April 2000 it was nominated for the Victorian Heritage egister by the City of Greater Dandenong (Hay et al.).
Waverley reflected also a major geographic shift, taking the game away from the traditional inner urban areas to outlying suburbs where a more affluent society with discretionary income…… [Read More]
They will go to far to hire a mercenary like Iago to pursue their goal for them. There are Othellos today as there was a shining one in Shakespeare's fiction or time. Military heroes like him have secret vulnerabilities, which reveal themselves in unguarded or trying moments. As a self-claimed victim of a foreign culture, Othello's cry of discrimination resounds in contemporary society despite his accomplishments.
Contentment in life is everyone's universal pursuit. That pursuit takes on what the present culture makes available and is most suitable at the moment. Othello perceives that his contentment goes beyond acclaim and military power. It includes having a dutiful and beautiful wife in Desdemona. He pours his weakest on him and on a scheming subordinate, Iago. Othello's credulousness is not confined to Shakespeare's time. Credulousness is universal. People living and thriving in a country with a different culture must invest in trust or…… [Read More]
Catton's descriptions of Lee and Grant are filled with respect for both men and Catton would hardly consider his work entertainment. Baker, however, has every intention of making the reader laugh (be it uncomfortable or genuine) at both Toronto and New York. but, again, where Catton seeks to elevate the two subjects of his work to a particular status, Baker is clearly wanting to take Toronto down several pegs for, perhaps, acting superior to New York.
When positively comparing Lee and Grant, Catton says, "Under everything else, they were marvelous fighters. Furthermore, their fighting qualities were really very much alike...in each man there was an indomitable quality." The language used by Baker is much less genuine and clear in intent, "The subway, on which Toronto prides itself, was a laughable imitation of the real thing. The subway cars were not only spotlessly clean, but also fully illuminated. So were the…… [Read More]
In addition, simply from observation, there were people from a vast array of lifestyles present. One way that was obvious was in the attire that people were wearing. Some were dressed in conservative clothing, while a few people were dressed in clothing that could almost be labeled "provocative." In addition, there was a couple who were clearly bikers. There were worshippers of all ages present, though the majority of people seemed to be middle-age or younger.
I can not even begin to estimate how many worshippers were present, but the former stadium was almost full to capacity, which means that there had to have been tens of thousands of worshippers there.
Like many worship services, the service began with music. However, there was no mere choir singing at Lakewood; although a choir did sing, the day also featured a performance by a Christian-music band and a singer whom appeared somewhat…… [Read More]
The reforms he underwent in communist Russia slowly offered the American Administration the hope that communication and cooperation would be possible and that an end to the communist regime was in sight. Thus, perestroika and glasnost became the tools with which the Russian leader also earned Reagan's trust. (Hyland, 1990) the Reykjavik summit, although ended with no important outcome, represented the first proof of the reevaluation of the relation between the two superpowers. It all culminated however, in the Malta summit, when the two leaders ush and Gorbachev declared the Cold War over.
Overall, it can be said that the Vietnam War was indeed an important moment in history because it offered the conditions for the U.S. To realize the change in the international political environment and the need for diplomatic cooperation more than military confrontation. From this point on, subsequent administrations worked, more or less, to reaching a peaceful…… [Read More]
Collusion, therefore, has the impact of delivering higher prices to consumers than they would otherwise experience. In the long-run, this keeps all firms in the industry in business but in the short-run it is detrimental to consumers, so most forms of collusion are not allowed by regulators. The irony is that regulators are needed to maintain the "free" nature of the market -- to keep prices competitive. This is necessary when barriers to entry are high, as few new firms will enter an oligopolistic industry that is engaging in dangerous price wars.
There are examples of collusion in the world, however. OPEC is probably the biggest one. The cartel sets its output (around 1/3 of global oil output) in order to manage the level of total global output. This has the effect of managing the prices, as long as non-OPEC nations do not change their output levels to counterbalance OPEC's…… [Read More]
Some of the best experiences I have ever had occur in a small diner downtown called Mike's Place. The diner is old and tiny but because it is what we call a hole in the wall, it is rarely busy. It sits between two other businesses on the street and, upon first glance, looks like nothing special and nowhere inviting. The words "Mike's Place" are painted in red and white letters on the glass above the door and they are very easy to miss. Mike's serves food items that many small downtown restaurants serve, including burgers, spicy fried chicken, mashed potatoes, cheese fries, huge rolls bathed in butter, and the best biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Mike's keeps short hours, meaning it is open for breakfast and lunch. Mike's is one of the most inspirational places I frequent because it has style and character.

Starbucks' 'third place' strategy derived from Howard Schultz' experience in Milan, where he saw how the coffee shop could serve this role, and how the comfortable environment attracted customers. Starbucks decided to cultivate this third place with a number of key policies. The first is that the company needed outlets with ample seating in order to facilitate a large number of customers in the establishment at any given time. The staff needed to be oriented to allowing customers to remain in place for long periods of time as well, so some training was required in order to implement this strategy.
In addition, the design and layout of the stores was important. Starbucks stores need to feel comfortable, so that people are encouraged to linger. This creates an atmosphere that other customers pick up on, and becomes part of the culture of the company's stores. The company has also supported this…… [Read More]
Mice really do like cheese, and it can be used in mousetraps for controlling a rodent population. The idea of a mouse in the house may be horrifying to some people, but in rural and farming areas it is quite common for mice to get into a house - especially a house that is quite old and may not seal up as well as a new home. Additionally, many farming communities have large barns, and mice will get into barns to keep warm and to look for grain and other things which they can eat. If there is cheese available, they will certainly consume it - and if that cheese is in a properly-baited mousetrap the rodent population will be kept under control. There are other types of mousetraps now, but for people who prefer the old-fashioned "snap traps" there are few bait foods that are more popular…… [Read More]
As a symbolic extension of the physical meaning of the word "small," the word can refer to something that is insignificant or of little importance, and this has many applications in the book. Antigua is seen as a "small place" by many in that it is of no real importance to the British or even to the other tourists that flock to the island. To these people, it is simply a quaint and picturesque place to visit, but if it disappeared the next day it wouldn't really affect them. Jamaica and the other poor, native inhabitants of the island are equally forgotten or ignored, and made to feel quite small in their lives, and all of these are possible meanings of the title -- the island and/or its people are the "small place" upon which the book focuses. Alternatively, as the book comments on the beauty and the greatness that…… [Read More]
Every act happens at some time and in some place, and in like manner every act that we do either does or may affect both ourselves and others."
till others try to rebuff these objections, clarifying self-regarding acts and other-regarding acts.
J.C. Rees is at the helm of the counter-movement of interpretations, arguing that there is a distinguishable difference between actions that affect others and those that affect others' interests; he purports that it is the protection of other's interests to which Mill meant for liberty's limitation. Rees constructs a relativistic, conservative interpretation of liberty, in which the emphasis is placed on distinguishing interests from 'arbitrary wishes, fleeting fancies, and capricious demands." In his protection of the "permanent interests of man as a progressive being," Mill demands that the limitations of liberty extend to the interference of the protection of another citizen's own right to liberty.
The freedom of choice…… [Read More]
Airs, Waters, Places
A close reading of "Airs, Waters, Places" by Hippocrates will show that it was the first instance of climatic (environmental determinism. Climatic Determinism is based on the idea that the climate, the natural resources, and the land itself determine the nature of the habitants (which includes the physical nature, the cognitive ability, the moral compass, ethnical-being, intellectual being, etc.). Climate determines the physical nature and then the intellectual being of individuals living on the land, which in turn forms the culture of the group. It has greatly contributed to the development of the "Greek vs. Barbarian Antithesis" and the development of racism. However, how would culture affect the argument? Would the culture itself also influence the characteristics of the people on the land? We will examine these questions as well as how absolute the cultural determinism is in Hippocrates and whether or not is permeable, that is…… [Read More]

Two of Milton Friedman's main points referred to the belief that all companies had the primary objective of registering profits, and also that it was normal and natural for unemployment to exist to a specific degree; it if were to be entirely eliminated, inflation would be created.
As opposed to Friedman's view, Archie Carroll believes that the primary scope of the economic agents in that of operating in a socially responsible manner. Additionally, the more modern economist states that the focus of corporate social responsibility is the natural response to the evolution in the society and the growing need of business agents to balance the needs of their multiple stakeholders (Carroll, 1991).
If one were to select the principle to implement within the workplace, this would be the emphasis on corporate social responsibility, due to the…… [Read More]

, 2010). This statement, though not explanatory, probably suggests some negative history with African-American men or a positive history with white males and provides information about her beyond mere physical desire. In fact, when reading her ad, she appears to have a jaded view about relationships. She makes it clear that she is only interested in a long-term relationship. She cautions respondents not to respond to her in overtly sexual ways prior to getting to know her, even going so far as to tell them not to send photos of their penises to her. Until reading her ad, the author had not even considered that a person would respond to a personal ad by sending a picture of his penis. The entire attitude of the ad conveys a wariness that may be the advertiser's attempt to invoke the "hard to get" effect (Kassin et al., 2010)
The final ad was…… [Read More]
crime has been taking place. Although the forms of crime have evolved, so too has the strategies used to prevent crime. This essay will compare and contrast three of most common Crime Prevention strategies, which are, environmental design, social intervention and situational intervention. Crime prevention generally refers to preventing crime and anti-social behavior before it occurs. Crime Prevention Victoria, defines crime prevention as "any public or privately based initiative or policy aimed at reducing or eliminating criminal behavior, violence and fear of crime or violence in the community" (Armstrong, 2002). This essay aims to demonstrate not only the strengths and weaknesses of these three strategies but also to identify the individual crime causation theory that each strategy is based around. These being

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]
Putin reiterated that ussia does not consider Hamas a terrorist organization, and urged the global community to work with a Hamas-led Palestinian government.
"Hamas has arrived at the doors of power through legitimate elections," Putin said. "We must respect the Palestinian people and we have to look for solutions for the Palestinian people, for the international community, and also for Israel. Contacts with Hamas must continue," he added. (Hamas not a terror organization)
The leaders of Hamas have some chance to make an alliance with Israeli leaders that would allow them to gain an unencumbered claim to some territory and gain some support from Western leaders. There has been some attempt to do this. In 2008, former President Jimmy Carter worked with Hamas leader Khaled Meshal to reach an agreement that Hamas would agree to a truce with Israel if and when the Palestinian people agreed to a Palestinian…… [Read More]
He treated the other residents with dignity as he was working. He said that while there were many residents in the shelter, none of them was alike but people insisted on treating them the same way. Often, residents will find reasons to fight and argue with one another but he wanted to be above that kind of behavior. He was sensitive to the fact that all of them had rough experiences and were just like him in that they were trying to make things better. He would comment that all the residents were citizens of the country and they all deserved the same rights as anyone else, whether they had a home or not. He would rally around residents when they suffered an injustice and try to work toward an amiable situation with them if her could.

Zeus himself, though now king of the gods, is the child of other gods who are themselves children of still greater gods -- Gaia or Mother Earth among them. Most significant for our purposes here is the fact that Zeus created four other races of man before he got to ours, meaning that again man (especially in his current form) was the last in a long line o creative outbursts. Certain other portions of the Greek creation myth necessitate the creation of animals prior to the creation of the current race of man for procreative purposes, meaning that modern man was most certainly the last species to be created according to this myth. What this says about Man's relation the animals is somewhat more obscure.
Similarities in Man's Position
Both the Greek and the Biblical creation myths leave a certain ambiguity concerning Man's relation to the animals. In the Biblical…… [Read More]
Certainly, utilizing those agencies now that there has been a crime at the premises is warranted. However, it may not have been negligent for DWI to fail to contact law enforcement when it first began receiving threats. Large corporations such as DWI routinely receive threats in the course of business. The vast majorities of those threats are harmless and represent no danger to the employees or customers of those organizations. Therefore, DWI may have been exercising due diligence by increasing its security force and not reporting the action to the police. To determine whether or not DWI was negligent, it would be necessary to see the exact language of the threats. Threats of plausible violence against customers or staff would give rise to a higher standard of care than threats against the property. Businesses cannot be held responsible for harm that occurs as the result of an unforeseeable act by…… [Read More]
He briefly outlines the argument: at one point in the story, the older waiter says "She cut him down," referring to the old man's (a customer) niece. The disputed but of dialogue is a later line that according to convention would be attributed to the older waiter: "I know. You said she cut him down." In the one existing copy of the manuscript, this line appears to be a late addition, and some scholars believe that the publishers made an error in attribution. Smith counters this by claiming that "Hemingway read carefully whatever proofs he received of the publications in 1933" (Smith, 36). Smith then reveals that a typescript had recently surfaced which bridged the gap between penciled manuscript and published page, and that this typescript also attributes the line to the older waiter, exonerating the publishers (Smith, 38). He becomes embroiled in a reflection on who could possibly have…… [Read More]
Those three activities were: educational and cultural exchange, humanitarian relief, and peace (Lyrie, 2002, 55). Of course, during that time the level, affordability and speed of modern communications was not what it is today. The early efforts in the three categories that actually serve as the basis for the global peace initiative today involved participants of the sciences, political, economic and sociological communities in problem identifying and solving conferences, meetings, and summits held around the world. Today, these same kinds of communications are being held amongst average citizens from nearly every country around the world who are finding that we all have so much in common and that our different cultures and traditions are more interesting than threatening.
It would be fantastical not to acknowledge the forces opposing world peace and the celebration of cultural exchange and traditions. Today, those forces are represented by the acts of terrorism that is…… [Read More]
Part 2: A manufacturer of computer chips has been unable to convince her dealers to give her the names and addresses of the end consumer. She understands CM and wants to implement a plan that includes both the dealers and the end users. Define an approach that the manufacturer can take to build a CM environment that provides optimal flow of all relative information in support of the company-consumer relationships. The response should take into account the company's culture, size, structure (functional, brand alignment, geographic, account management, industry category, matrix, by customer), technology, and processes.

In the case of olly Peacock's "Desire," the primal instinct of procreation lies in the separation of reason from feeling; in this context, desire becomes "but more raw / and blinder and younger and more divine, too, / than the tamed wild -- it's the drive for what is real, / deeper than the brain's detail: the drive to feel." (Desire: 11-14) Here, "what is real" is a metaphorical reference to the instinctual drive that supports and amplifies the feeling of desire; "the drive to feel" designates the innermost aspect of what makes us human.
olly Peacock's poem "Desire" focuses on the abstract notion of sexual desire, on what drives it and what its manifestations are. She does not provide an example - as in the case of Ackerman - of how sexual desire operates, and its ways of expression between two lovers but adopts the same theoretical standpoint on…… [Read More]
Since both individuals were seeking to improve
the circumstances, the question that begs to be asked is why did the male
"Male leaders received lower effectiveness ratings when expressing
sadness compared to neutrality, while female leaders received lower ratings
when expressing either sadness or anger" (Lewis, 2000, p. 221). Since
females are perceived in a different light, their emotions are also viewed
as being different as well. A response such as this does not make
cognitive sense, nor is it needs based, but it could be a fixed or a
learned behavior that would coincide with the fixed action theory.
Appealing to the audience from a needs basis might assist the young female
in achieving her goal, or she could benefit by taking a more dispassionate
approach in addressing the crowd. She could benefit from arousing the
students with application of a fixed action response especially from the
males…… [Read More]
We would arrive there around dusk, and walk along the beach till the last of the fishermen had disappeared. Then we would head to the end of the pier, just to talk about life. Every once in a while we would see boats off in the distance, and we would make up wild stories about the adventures that the people on the boats were having. One time, a fisherman had left something tied to the pier, and we were horrified to pull it up and find a baby hammerhead shark on the line, eaten up by other animals, a huge crab still attached to it as we pulled it up. Another time, we headed there during a storm, in retrospect, a very dangerous and stupid thing to do. The waves crashed high against the pier, and we could actually feel it sway beneath us. We were full of dangerous behavior…… [Read More]
What appears to explain their shared high rates of violent behavior is their increased interpersonal dependency. They are socially withdrawn and entertain a negative view of themselves. These difficulties with trust are common in the two disorders. They are thus more personally dependent on their partners. Furthermore, veterans with a major physical health problem are likelier to commit domestic violence than the other veterans surveyed. The physical problem tends to increase their irritability and dependence on their partners. Other studies found this characteristic high partner-specific dependency among physically abusive men who exhibit personal inadequacy, low social self-confidence and increased reliance on those nearest them. Many of these physically abusive men greatly fear abandonment and are anxiously attached. They are thus hypersensitive to rejection and often show anger in their intimate relationships. Veterans often display excessive coercion to which the partners respond by distancing themselves. The veterans' fear and dependencies can…… [Read More]
This view, however, fails in Limerick's mind, to adequately show how we can directly trace our current social, economic, and political order to Jamestown, Salem, and the Louisiana Purchase. "White Americans saw the acquisition of property as a cultural imperative" (Limerick, 55). How has that changed either before or after? Isn't that the justification used by the Virginia Company when establishing Jamestown? Isn't that the same as Sam Houston's justification for the subjugation and annexation of Texas? Isn't that the same as our ongoing destruction of the environment to create homes, shopping malls, and warehouses? Manifest Destiny existed in the European mindset even before the phrase was coined. Thus, Limerick observes that we have to see our history as part of that same kind of continuity of intent.
Indeed, Limerick promotes a moral significance on the history of the American West rather than a focus on specific dates and specific…… [Read More]
Orality helped bring religion to all the people of a tribe, and helped each generation appreciate and understand the importance of the tales and rituals. Many tribes used these methods of delivery, in fact, before writing was invented; they were the only way of preserving these important religious messages. The rituals themselves created spirituality and understanding of the world around the people. This is illustrated by the Native Americans, who, for the most part, had an enduring relationship with the natural world, and included many natural icons in their religions. Their orality included tales about animals and places, and how the people interact with these things on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many of them were lost when the oral traditions were lost or forgotten. Many tribes try to keep these traditions alive today, to preserve the spiritual beliefs and culture of the people.
There are many reasons writing does not…… [Read More]
The idea that Americans had the right to expand became known as Manifest Destiny that first appeared in print in 1845, but had been popular for decades prior. The idea was that American's "manifest desitiny [was] to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our multiplying millions." In other words, God granted Americans the right to move est and take whatever land possible. This was echoed in President Polk's Innagural Address in 1844, in which he put forth the idea that America was destined to expand democratic institutions, and that this was a moral right. "It is confidently believed that our system may be safely extended to the utmost bounds of our territorial limits, and that as it shall be extended to bonds of our Union, so far from being weakened, will become stronger" (Manifest Destiny, 2005).
Pressure built so much and there were so many…… [Read More]
Like there are some things I want to say but I have to think of them in Hebrew then in my mind think of it in English to see if it makes any sense.
Q. Do you have any regrets moving to the United States?
A. egrets aww... Maybe one, if regret leaving my pets behind. I had a lovely puppy her name was Sarah. I feel as though I lost part of the family. I have never seen a dog like that. Any way we can't have dogs were we live so I have lost that part of my life. Other than that I have no regrets. I really love living here.

Belonging to Family and Place
In Peter Skrzynecki's Poems and Rabbit-Proof Fence
Belonging is a powerful motivator, and can give people the strength to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks. The sense of belonging derives from warmth, love, and protection by one's family or a place that one is attached to. e belong to our communities by virtue of memory, longstanding participation in the life of a place or a group of people (Ilcan 2002). As Skrzynecki's poetry so effectively demonstrates, we can even belong to places that do not exist anymore, and we can cherish a sense of belonging for a community that has changed radically or even ceased to be. The film Rabbit-Proof Fence also illustrates the power of belonging in the family and culture of origin even when one's culture is treated as alien and unwanted by the dominant population (Read 2000). Below, I will discuss some of the…… [Read More]
demands being placed on the global transportation industry are creating unprecedented requirements for international commerce during a period when peak oil is being approached and the need for more environmentally responsible alternatives has become especially pronounced. The responses to the varied needs of the global transportation industry have included research and development of alternative energy sources as well as innovative supply chain management approaches that make global transportation more efficient and reduce energy requirements in the process. This paper provides a review of the relevant peer-reviewed and scholarly literature to develop a current overview of the global transportation industry and the challenges it faces in the future. A summary of the research and important findings are presented in the paper's conclusion.
Global Transportation Challenges

In this paper, we began with an examination of a college pub as a place where there is a culture of consumption of services and products. Like any other part of material culture, the culture of consumption is just as much a part of technology as it is any other part of material culture. The technology of alcohol goes back into human memory to a time prior to written language. In this essay, we examined alcohol as a technology of consumption in the broader context of human culture .

This is similar to third wave thinking; however, post modern feminists tend to embrace academic writing and academic feminism, and third wave feminists generally reject academic feminism (Frederick, 2004). In addition, postmodern feminists are considered more grounded in theory, and very specific with regard to their intent and vocalizations, whereas third wave are also seen as appealing more to the masses (Frederick, 2004; Tong, 1998). Postmodern feminism is also viewed as embracing the idea of 'disruptive sexuality' without analysis (Frederick, 2004).
People say that Feminism is messier today (third wave) than in the first and second wave because feminists have complicated the very nature of feminism. In the second wave women were dealing with traditional things such as basic human rights, but now most women don't know what is happening. Women already have many basic freedoms thus don't know where to turn. Feminists in the third wave still attempt to…… [Read More]
Again, this is prepared to verify that all of the debits and credits equal.
Once this has been completed, the next step would be to prepare the financial statements. Information from the adjusted trial balance is used to prepare an income statement, a statement of owner's equity, and a balance sheet. An income statement is a summary of the revenue and expense accounts for a given time period. The statement of owner's equity shows the changes of the owner's equity for a given time period. This may include additional investments as well as withdraws. The balance sheet is a listing of all assets, liabilities, and owner's equity for a given time period. The financial statements are produced in that order as information from the income statement is used to complete the statement of owner's equity and the information from the statement of owner's equity is used to complete the balance…… [Read More]
The unemployment rate is supposed to stay stable and be estimated as 5,2% in 2005, 5,1% in 2006 and stay the same in 2007, thus signaling that there will be no improvement in the employment situation in the country. As for the interest rate, the return on Treasure Bills with ten years to maturity is forecasted to be at the level of 4,7% in 2005, 5,3% in 2006 and 5,6% in 2007, thus to be growing. The housing starting is projected not to grow by the Mortgage Bakers' Association, and is forecasted at 1,958 millions units in 2005, 1,758 in 2006 and 1,730 in 2007. This forecast may be biased because of the wish to signal the tightening supply in the property market to the consumers and thus stimulate the demand for property which will lead to the increases in the real estate prices. This will give opportunity to the…… [Read More]
Conflicts and Communication at the Work Place
a) The conflict scenario as narrated in Case 10-2 has the following key elements that were important to analyze before an actual model for conflict resolution was taken:
The cause of the conflict provided in the scenario would have been the first element to be considered before any conclusions were jumped at by the conflict resolver. The paramount mode this could have been done was through giving an ear to each of the parties involved in the conflict, in this case, eese and Patel. This element would have ensured that the conflict was entirely solved other than the temporal act just to fulfill the company's and boss' objective (Borisoff, 1997).
The extent of conflict was supposed to be analyzed to help the resolver know the intensity of conflict resolution to be applied.
Time pressure for the defined job was an influence…… [Read More]

military place Zhou dynasty China? What social impact ? eference Book: A History World Societies,
Essentially, Alexander the Great incurred the displeasure of his Macedon army during the battle of Gaugamela. This battle took place in the part of Iraq that is today known as Irbil. The reason that Alexander's soldiers were displeased with their leader is because after traversing through various parts of Asia and conquering it, Alexander's contingent eventually came upon Darius' forces in the midst of the night. Alexander's army was able to tell that it was the army of the mighty Persian king, whom Alexander had a profound respect for, due to the campfires that they were able to see faintly glowing in the distance within the darkness.
A minor dispute arose between Alexander and his troops because the former were inclined to attack the Persian king in the depths of the night, hoping that…… [Read More]
