sexuality: Scholarly vs. popular media source comparison
According to Roberts (et al. 2010), sexuality is becoming increasingly viewed as a commodity in the discourse of the western urban economy. Various terms that have been applied to this new emerging culture include 'striptease culture' and a 'pleasure-saturated culture' in which highly sexualized services and images such as lap-dancing have become mainstreamed and common (Roberts et al. 2010). Contrary to stereotypes that only lower-class women participate in the sex trade out of desperation, there has been a growing trend towards normalizing exotic dancing and other once-fringe aspects of the sex industry. For example, some students are resorting to sex work as a way of paying off exorbitant student loans. Previous studies have found that mitigating factors to students entering the sex industry include "family support, boyfriends, body image, self-confidence, and a lack of knowledge of (how to enter) the sex…… [Read More]
Scholars must use reliable information to build new conclusions and arguments of their own. If the information they use to build an argument is in any way flawed or unreliable, their entire conclusion can thus be in jeopardy. As such, one way to ensure that the information a scholar compiles is valid enough is to use peer reviewed articles from reliable academic journals. Peer reviewed articles have the their advantages, as well as some disadvantages, but in the end are the best choice for scholarly research.
In this exercise, a peer reviewed article was chosen to be used as a source of analysis for the peer review process. Leung (2013) wrote the article "Generational Differences in Content Generation in Social Media: The oles of the Gratifications Sought and of Narcissism" for the scholarly journal Computers and Human Behavior that was accessed through the Elsevier database.

Graham, M. (2007). Art, ecology and art education: locating art education in a critical place-Based pedagogy. Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research, 48(4): 375-391.
This study situates place-based education in the context of critical pedagogy in order to provide a framework for art education with a focus on ecology. The study asserts that the local places are marginalized and undermined by the emphasis on consumption in the global sense. Ecological issues, such as destroyed habitats, deteriorating wilderness, alienation, homelessness, and detachment are all the felt effects of global economies. The study uses a critical place-based pedagogical framework to show how ecology can be supported in art education and why it is important to do so for both society and the environment, and why art education is a suitable vehicle for this approach.
The study is loosely constructed and lacks a definite approach to its subject. The…… [Read More]

Driving nowadays has become a relatively common aspect of every day life. More and more people are inseparable from their cars, motorcycles or other private means of transportation. As the number of people using private vehicles increases, so does the number of serious accidents on the motorways. One of the reasons for these accidents is drunk driving which has become a serious concern not only for the authorities but also for the civil society. There are a lot of aspects that can be taken into account when discussing possible means through which the number of fatal casualties as well as injuries can be reduced. Given that the civil society and the population at large has an immense role…… [Read More]
Franklin was a natural scientist, one who was fascinated with the natural world and who was also dedicated to documenting and understanding its workings. Morgan notes that Franklin was "continually designing experiments" and "had the same curiosity about the world that drives today's scientists," (8; 9). Franklin was, therefore, ahead of his time, and as Morgan states, felt he was "born too soon," (ix).
Morgan's biography is well-organized and straightforward but is not strictly chronological. hile he attempts to offer a basically linear account of Franklin's life in the context of his many achievements, Morgan presents Franklin's life more in terms of overarching themes than of how the man proceeded from childhood through old age. For example, Morgan begins by describing Franklin's fascination with the oceanic world, which led him to investigate other scientific processes and manifestations including lightening. Moreover, Franklin's spirituality and religiosity followed him throughout his career, influencing…… [Read More]

Alfred Adler: A short literature review
Alfred Alder is one of the most noteworthy early psychologists to break from the Freudian model and to provide a new way of conceptualizing the human consciousness beyond the Freudian model of repression. Alfred's psychoanalytic theory developed as a "reaction to Freud's theories on the development of the self. Adler split with Freud over the centrality of sexuality in the formation of personality (Dewey, 1991). In contrast to Freud, Adler expressed the view that human behavior is holistic (nonreductive), ideological (goal-driven), and socially oriented" (Peluso et al. 2004). Adler believed that based on family relationships, by the time a child is 6, he or she has developed a 'style of life' through which he or she interacts with the world. Key to developing normally was developing a social interest, or way of relating to others in a manner…… [Read More]
But it may be that there lurked in them some trace of the impatient contempt with which the medical profession of an earlier day regarded the neuroses, seeing in them the unnecessary results of invisible lesions." (Freud, 1937, p. 373)This is to say that, from Freud's perspective, it had been historically the presumption of the therapy process that the speed with which one was treated and addressed was to a high priority. To this point, it had previously been seen that those who defied treatment with this level of expediency were beyond the reach of therapeutic methods. Freud discounted this position, instead making the primary argument that the length of time for some patients could be seen as necessarily prolonged. Indeed, Freud even points to the likelihood that some subjects would benefit from an interminable course of therapy in which regular consultation could help to alleviate the pressures of one's…… [Read More]

Critically evaluating leadership theories
Defining what makes great leadership often seems like trying to capture lightning on camera: everyone agrees it is spectacular, but it is very difficult to encapsulate and define what it clearly is in a manner that is truly representative of its power. That is why so many people say that great leaders are born, not made. However, throughout the ages, various theorists have attempted to define what makes a great leader in a reasoned and analytical fashion.
One of the most common views of leadership can be summed up as the 'great man' concept of leadership -- the idea that leaders must be charismatic and motivate with their personalities as well as give directives. This concept still…… [Read More]
The scholarly website on organizational culture that is being reviewed is the Harvard Business eview, which produces content on a variety of business issues, among them organizational culture and mentoring. Within this website there are a number of articles, some of which were written for publication in the Harvard Business eview itself, and others of which were produced for the HB.org blog network. The blogs are produced by experts from both industry and academia in order to inform readers and stimulate discussion on these business topics.
An example of how the site works is found in a blog post by Watkins (2013). This post discusses the author's attempts to spark a discussion about the subject on LinkedIn, and the responses that this discussion generated. This is an interesting post because it gathers a wide variety of opinions about organizational culture and uses quotes from different site users as…… [Read More]

academic or scholarly writing. The biggest thing is the professionalism that goes into the work.. A good piece of scholarly writing requires that the researcher has developed genuine scholarship in the field. It is the knowledge and quality of the research that determines whether something is scholarly writing or not, not the quality of writing. So basically, you need to start by learning as much as you can about the subject, approaching your research from a number of different angles. That also means using the best sources.
Source are important. Generally, sources are academic in nature themselves. You can make exceptions where data are concerned -- an economist or archaeologist will use primary source data for example, but you must build everything around research and scholarly work that has been peer reviewed. The key to the peer review system is that the author of the work has it reviewed by…… [Read More]
copying the ideas of the other writers in your works without acknowledging the sources. In other words, plagiarism is the act of taking the written works of others writers with the intention of transferring the contents as your own works without citing the references. A paraphrasing is the method that writers can employ to avoid plagiarism, and one of the challenges that many writers face when completing their course works is the method of paraphrasing without falling into plagiarism.
Objective of this paper is to discuss the strategy of presenting the scholarly writing without falling into plagiarism. The paper also paraphrases part of the contents from the paper of O'Conner, (2003).

The article deals with a phenomenon -- the increase in obesity -- in a manner supported by much of the current scientific coverage on the topic. It specifically deals with how obesity may be caused by environmental factors, such as overeating, lack of activity, and stress. The article takes a scientific approach to understanding the complex causal relationship between these factors.

All three articles are scholarly because they were written by professional educators, mostly professors at the university level, who carried out statistical studies of the reading abilities of students. One of these studies used a control group, another compared males and females, and the third compared highly-motivated and less-motivated learners. In "Solving the Problem of Summer eading Loss" (2011), James S. Kim and Thomas G. White studied four groups of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students to determine the efficacy of summer reading programs. Kim was a professor at the Harvard School of Education and White a research scientist at the University of Virginia, and the focus of their research in was the well-known discrepancy in reading levels between low-income and middle-income students and between whites and minorities.

She also emphasizes the fact that "…the pervasiveness of social prejudice and institutionalized discrimination against lesbians and gay men" presents a powerful influence in psychological research (160). The attack on gay and lesbian parenting research is amazingly similar to the attack on climate change by the right wing (conservatives say the scientific research is biased); and it is similar to attacks on laws prohibiting lead bullets in California Condor habitat (the NRA insists the research is biased against gun owners). The pattern is clear: if a group or political party disagrees with a policy, then they attack the research as biased.

The author of this brief essay has been asked to conduct a review of a set of articles and then offer a response to a few questions. These questions include what a review of the literature is meant to do, how this literature review relates to the predefined problems and questions identified by the researcher and what other hypotheses and questions might arise while looking at the provided articles. Indeed, it can be very useful to engage in a literature review, either as the main way a research program is executed or as part of a primary study. While literature reviews can be botched and mishandled if done incorrectly, they can be a very positive thing for good research and scholarly when done correctly.
As explained by the commentary for the second module, the goal and reason to engage in a proper literature review is clear. Indeed, it serves…… [Read More]
Looking at the challenges that much human race face are in one way or another related to global warming and thus cannot be ignored. Thus connecting the two, family matters and environmental issues can help in making viable decision-making with considerations on the importance of the eventual effects as well as details at all levels; from individual to global levels (Houghton, 2004, p. 229).
Though imposing changes in our lifestyles can prove difficult, gradual progress to connect family matters and environment is crucial. The practical costs of recycling have more benefits in the long-term considerations compared to short-term costs. In addition, the choice to use public transport can be a costly sacrifice despite being a vital decision to saving the environment. Therefore, it is our obligation to remain realistic and considerate to our own selves and gradually bring eco-friendly reasoning in our lifestyles. In addition, extreme environmental actions like violent…… [Read More]
grants work increase one's chances of receiving grants?
No definite answer can be given on that. Funding services linked to school is one complicated issue everyone has been avoiding to talk about (Chavkin, 1997). There are no definite methods. Multiple streams of both new and existing funding have been used by different experiments. A number of initiatives are funded by states such as New Jersey, California, Missouri, Florida, and Kentucky, initiatives funded by organizations and foundations such as Annie E. Casey Foundation and the Hogg Foundation and some federal grants like Service Integration Facilitation and the National Center for Service Integration grants. One major problem faced by new grant seekers is how best to separate the solution from the need. For instance, a school (a social working organization) might be in need of a van with which they can transport students to school and from school after school activities. The…… [Read More]
Longitudinal Effects of Violent Media Usage on Aggressive Behavior -- The Significance of Empathy by Mossle, T., Kliem, S. & ehbein, F.
This research work by Kliem, ehbein, and Mossle (2014) was aimed at scrutinizing, in detail, the association of aggressive behavior with exposure to media violence. The study employed a sizeable longitudinal sample of students to ascertain, in particular, empathy's contribution as a potential mediator in this link.
(1) Does a longitudinal association of significance exist between aggressiveness and violent media usage?
(2) Does empathy significantly mediate the association between aggressive behavior and violent media usage? (p. 108)

country's public schools are experiencing dwindling state education budgets and increased unfunded mandates from the federal government, the search for optimal approaches to providing high quality educational services for students with learning disabilities has assumed new importance and relevance. In an attempt to satisfy the mandates of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, a growing number of special educators agree that full inclusion is the optimal approach for providing the individualized services needed by young learners with special needs. Known as "mainstreaming" in the past, full inclusion means integrating students with special physical, cognitive or emotional needs into traditional classroom setting. Practices that promote full inclusion for students with special needs assist educators in focusing instruction in innovative ways to help meet the educational needs of an increasingly diverse student population with a wide array of specialized needs. Critics of full inclusion argue that in many if not…… [Read More]
drug use and abuse in the United States and presents differing approaches that are used (or proposed) to get a handle on the problem. There is no doubt that the drug abuse issue is not new and it is not being reduced by any significant amount. This paper presents statistics and scholarly research articles that delve into various aspects of the drug abuse issue in the United States, with particular emphasis on drugs that are abused in eastern Kentucky and generally in the Appalachian communities.
History of Drug Use & Availability
The history of illegal drug use in the United States goes back to the 19th Century, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). The DEA has a Museum in Arlington, Virginia, that illustrates the history of drug discoveries, drug use, and drug abuse through the years. The DEA reports that morphine, heroin, and cocaine were "discovered" in the…… [Read More]

He concludes that although the said policy has contributed significantly to the country's economic growth, it has also been…… [Read More]
There needed to be a much greater level of coordination, communication and collaboration for the full benefits of project management initiatives and strategies to succeed. One of the best practices that emerged from the shift to a leadership and organizational basis of project management is the essential role of Emotional Intelligence (EI) as a galvanizing factor of making projects more relevant and accomplished in complex organizations (Clarke, 2010).
Where authoritarian and transactional management leadership had been sufficient for managing projects during the systems perspective era (Kioppenborg, Opfer, 2002) those leadership skill sets were not sufficient for the era of leadership and organizational behavior (Keegan, Hartog, 2004). This fundamental shift in project management perspective also corresponded to a shift in the expectations, need and requirements of a subsequent generation of knowledge workers as well (Keller, 2006). No longer would be authoritarian and transactional work. The entire culture of how projects were…… [Read More]
Today, China owns the majority of U.S. debt, thereby inflating the Yuan and further downgrading the security of the dollar across the globe. These trends mean that American taxpayer money will increasingly be used to benefit foreign governments, leaving even fewer resources available for American citizens. A smaller, more efficient government is clearly needed, but in order to reduce government growth, a grassroots effort needs to be created to encourage term limits and eliminate wasteful and redundant government bureaucracies. In order to be successful, though, this effort must be embraced across all political party lines but the payoff will be worth it. By curbing government growth and control in business and Americans' private lives today, the country will be able to regain its financial security and maintain America's fundamental constitutional liberties.

letter of recommendation which I, as being a graduate of interpersonal communication measures, have dealt with to a recently wedded pair - Lara and Jack Sawyer. The main objective of this document has been to focus on a few of the primary interpersonal communication problems that emerge in freshly married partners accompanied by guidance, based on pertinent scholarly documents, which will help them get around these communication problems.
Just before the problem of communication is explained in depth, it is actually essential to figure out what plays a role in relationship fulfillment to be able to position communication inside a theoretical framework. Scientific studies in this field seem to have largely been led by an essential theory of relationship quality and steadiness produced by Lewis and Spanier (1979). These scientists specify relationship quality as being the subjective assessment related to the connection on numerous interpersonal relationship designs as well as…… [Read More]

And institutions that are non-profit and would say that these seem to be less hegemony-imbued than those that others and I have attended in the U..A. From what I have heard and experienced, problems of hegemony particularly seem to exist in the online for-profit universities that are notorious for offering degraded syllabus and programs, being more of a diploma mill and requesting money than offering education.
All universities and institutions that I have attended have slanted their education according to the politics of their country with curriculum heavily slanting to their specific country and criticizing those that opposed their country.

Financial Measures and Management Practices
New business leaders, aspiring entrepreneurs and even experienced professionals are all confronted with a bewildering array of financial measures that are commonly used to reflect how well companies are performing. Moreover, there are a number of management tools that are available that can be used to evaluate these financial measures provided that the practitioner understands what they mean and how they can be used. To this end, this paper provides a review of the relevant juried and scholarly literature concerning various financial measures and management practices, followed by a summary of the research and important findings in the conclusion.

The Tampa Bay Times recently reported on the standoff between school administrators, who claim the offending passages have been taken out of context, and protestors who have cried foul over what they perceive to be ideological indoctrination, stating that "the concerns raise the specter of textbook wars in other states, especially Texas, where ideological camps have long locked horns over everything from the validity of evolution to how much the Founding Fathers were guided by Christianity" (Matus & Solochek, 2011).
The inclusion of biased statements within textbooks which are widely regarded by students as unimpeachable records of factual statement is startling to say the least.

The general field of human resources has become more and more difficult as well as more perilous. That is not just a simple generalized statement made for dramatic effect and just for the purpose of setting up the introduction of this paper. Indeed, there are some questions that can and should be posed by human resources professionals that do not have clear answers because of how complicated and how contradictory the field's body of work has become. The ethical implications and obligations pertaining to human resources have been made very muddled by contradicting laws and guidelines thus making real compliance beyond a reasonable doubt very hard to pull off.
The hypothesis that underlies this report comes down to one main statement, and that is as follows:
The different ethics, laws and vagueness that exists in both has made it possible to become completely and reliably compliant with the…… [Read More]
commendation and for improvement in the paragraph regarding the availability of computers. The author has a fairly transparent degree of verve and enthusiasm for the subject, which is sometimes a key component of an insightful article (Turnquist, 2009, 437). However, he or she has the tendency to make some emotional appeals instead of relying on empirical evidence to make points. Doing so is a crucial component of scholarly writing, and one of the areas in which the author could use some improvement.
The primary strength associated with this article is the author's logic. The author elucidates a number of crucial points that reinforces the paper's thesis: that computers enjoy a current degree of availability that they previously did not. However, in attempting to demonstrate his or her enthusiasm about this subject, the author has actually written about this issue from a decidedly biased viewpoint.

This article is of extreme importance in this research study. It adds to the other articles mentioned by discussing the importance of protective factors in detail and urging caution when espousing a correlative relationship between cause and effect in divorce and the reaction of children.

Divorce: A Review of the Research. Family Relations, 52(3), pp.258-270.
In this article, eon (2003) attempts to address a gap in the research of divorce's affects on children by examining divorce's affects on small children. Citing Amato (2001), eon points out that research has previously shown children to face hardship because of divorce, although they "adjust well" (pg. 258), however, he suggests that these results generally take into account older children. eon (2003) looks primarily at the variable of early childhood development as it is impacted by divorce.

Then again, even the sites that allow for such commentary often don't receive any. PwC IFS hasn't received any comments in the past month on any of its articles, for instance, though it does provide accurate and fairly up-to-date information. Part of the reason for this could be the fact that this blog, like many others in the accounting world, are run by large firms -- Price Waterhouse Coopers, in this case. Though this does not mean there is necessarily a bias at work in the blog, and indeed certain differing opinions are allowed, the fact that the information on such blogs is so directly under the control of a single for-profit entity means it must be regarded as at least slightly suspect. As these resources are also free, however, there is no harm in regularly browsing them.

They then proceed to detail their selected sample (76 NYSE firms that reported at least three annual losses in period's 1980-1985 and that reduced cash dividends. They then implemented various conditions to test their hypothesis that it is the troubled firm's aim to retain preservation of their company, rather than to make a bonus, that causes them to select a certain accountancy plan.
In section 2, the authors describe their methods used in selecting a sampled population and their bias controls. There is a great deal of numerical data, and the material is dense particularly when they elaborate on the earnings and cash flow performance of the various firms. Each unit is broken up into subunits. Scholarly tables condensed with data that for instance report accrual levels and changes for the 76 firms support their written text and the Tables are alluded to in the text. Statistical analysis of these…… [Read More]
There are many way to approach the concept (or movement) known as romanticism, and over the many years romanticism has been perceived and defined in wildly different ways. Scholars and historians have spent tens of thousands of words dissecting, describing, and trying to come to terms with what romanticism really means. The truth is there are many ways to approach romanticism, and this paper looks into scholarly approaches to romanticism in 1925, 1949, and 1990. How is the approach to romanticism in 1925 different -- but also similar -- to another approach in 1990? That question and others that are germane to this topic will be presented in this paper. The three scholarly articles that will be critiqued in this paper are: Paul Kaufman's "Defining Romanticism" (1925); Morse Peckham's "Theory of Romanticism" (1951); and David Perkins' "The Romantic Movement" (1990).
Three scholarly articles from three periods in the twentieth…… [Read More]
In 1985, New runswick's government amended the Medical Act such that any physician performing an abortion not in a hospital, would be guilty of professional misconduct. In 1994, this provision was found to be unconstitutional.
However, New runswick still refuses to pay for abortions performed in privately operated clinics.
Doctor Morgentaler is quoted by Moulton (2003) as accusing the New runswick provincial government of not only being sexist and chauvinistic, but also of oppressing women. He relates the money that has been saved by not paying for these abortions to be in direct relation to the misery of women. However, Dr. Ed Schollenberg notes that there are more factors than just the debate over abortion that factor into this issue. There is also a general reluctance to provide funding for any private medical services, in New runswick. Although other areas of Canada enjoy a variety of private services, many of…… [Read More]

absorb them and regurgitate them at face value. To the contrary, part of conducting research is scrutinizing our research sources to determine their scholarly credibility. The importance of this ability is demonstrated in the discussion here, which considers two articles which are drawn from scholarly journals but which differ considerably in their scholarly credentials.
A study by Anderson & Keller (2002), published in the estern Journal of Nursing Research, concerns the therapeutic implications of smoking cessation. The primary objective of the study by Anderson & Keller is to draw a direct correlation between the transtheoretical model of health behavior and the variables associated with smoking cessation. The purpose is to promote an improvement of existing smoking cessation programs by finding ways to hone in on determinant independent variables. The transtheoretical model employed in the study is important to our discussion because, as the researchers acknowledge, this is a commonly employed…… [Read More]
In the context of online research and analysis, it is important to determine the credibility of sources whether they are scholarly or not. This is especially important when research is compiled and synthesized into new studies or academic, scholarly, or philosophic proposals or insights. It is important to recognize the validity of sources, especially when so many online sources and sites claim to be able to provide insight, and sometimes complete assignments, into ongoing discussions among students and professors at an undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral level.
One of the sites most frequently cited for a lack of credibility is Wikipedia.org. While Wikipedia may attract students due to its ease of use and the information contained on the site, it is often not considered a credible source due to its aggregate nature and because many of its entries are written, edited, and submitted by its users. While many educators…… [Read More]
Although the research tools provided by the ISO 14001 framework are both qualitative and quantitative, this approach is consistent with the guidance provided by Neuman (2003) who points out that, "Both qualitative and quantitative research use several specific research techniques (e.g., survey, interview, and historical analysis), yet there is much overlap between the type of data and the style of research. Most qualitative-style researchers examine qualitative data and vice versa" (p. 16). Indeed, researchers have used qualitative and quantitative surveys to assess consumer reactions to proposed environmental initiatives at the local level (Neuman, 2003).
In fact, quantitative and qualitative research methods are characterized by a number of similarities that lend themselves to environmental systems analyses and development (as well as some differences) (Neuman, 2003). The distinct differences in the qualitative and quantitative research suggest that the use of quantitative data for environmental system development is highly appropriate, but that such…… [Read More]
Articles on the History of Christianity
Christopher J. Haas' article "Imperial Religious Policy and Valerian's Persecution of the Church, A.D. 257 -- 260" was published within the scholarly journal Church History in 1983, and the author focuses his attention on the persecution of Christians by the Roman Emperor Valerian. According to Haas, one of the most compelling aspects of Valerian's persecution of Christians was the sudden shift in his official religious policy in the year 257 A.D. Haas asks in the article, "prior to that time the church was largely undisturbed, but the years 257 -- 258 witnessed a series of increasingly severe imperial edicts directed against Christianity. What prompted this sudden reversal of imperial religious policy in 257?,"1 and it is this question which forms the foundation of his subsequent scholarly inquiry. y reading this article, one learns that Valerian actually launched his campaign of persecution against Christians in…… [Read More]
Duties of a Correctional Psychologist
An increasing rate of violation of crimes characterizes the current global environment. Different forms of violence and aggression, including drug trafficking and abuse, robbery, and rape cases among other forms of violence necessitates the need for analyzing the roles of a correctional psychologist. he special roles played by the correctional psychologists such as providing environments that improve the safety of the staff and inmates, psychological services, inmate management, and conducting an evaluation of the inmate/prison population and its influence on inmates' health necessitated the study into the topic. In addition, the fact that the correctional psychology has numerous ethical dilemmas and conflicts makes it wanting to study the topic.
he working environment, professional and personal experiences made me interested in studying the duties and challenges facing correctional psychologist. he fact that correctional psychologists work in a simulative and challenging environment attracts my interests…… [Read More]
It may be that these 'poor' people inherited one or that their children are using the computer provided by the local library.
7. The author needs to define her constructs (iddell, 2007). What does the term' poor' mean. Or at least what does she have in mind when she says this. The word' poor' is relative and straddles a huge spectrum. When defining her constructs, the author, too, needs to quote an authoritative source for basis of her measure.
8. The argument would have benefited from a pro and con slant where the author not only presents evidence conducive to her claim but also presents also opposing arguments and evidence and then proceeds to deal with them (Ward, 2006).

The article summarizes the herbal medicine also known as botanical medicine to refer to the usage of plant seeds, roots, leaves and berries for the medicinal purposes. The article also indicates that use of herbal is today becoming more mainstream as improvements in the quality control with the advances in a clinical research shows the significance of the herbal medicine in treating and prevention of diseases (Herbal medicine, 2011).
How Herbs work and used
The herb contains ingredients that work together in producing a beneficial effect. For instance, the type of the environments in which the herbs plants grow may affect the herb. The use of the herbs has drastically increased over the past 40 years. Presently, the medicines are categorized as the dietary supplements by the people of United States of America (USA). This therefore means that, herbal supplements can be sold before being tested to prove that they…… [Read More]

Santa Anna Dictatorship
In his self-described revisionist biography Santa Anna of Mexico (2007), Will Fowler has courageously taken up the defense of the Mexico caudillo, fully aware that he is all but universally reviled in the historiography of the United States and Mexico. From the beginning, he made his intention clear to vindicate the reputation of a dictator whose "vilification has been so thorough and effective that the process of deconstructing the numerous lies that have been told and retold" is almost impossible.[footnoteRef:1] Timothy J. Henderson asserted that he had a great talent for exploiting and manipulating political divisions but none for governing a country. In U.S. history and popular culture, he has always been portrayed as a corrupt megalomaniac, the 'Napoleon of the West', responsible for the massacres at the Alamo and Goliad. As John Chasteen and James Wood put it, even his autobiography was an "extraordinary work of…… [Read More]

I. MY QUESTION
The topic of religious revolution interests me because much of history has been shaped by religious revolution. Consider the history of the West. The rise of Constantine to the seat of the Emperor in the early 4th century allowed Christianity to flourish. The Roman Catholic Church became deeply influential some 400 years later with Charlemagne, who was crowned Holy Roman Emperor by the Pope in 800. Religious revolution broke out in Europe with the Protestants, led by Luther, Zwingli, Knox, Calvin and Henry VIII. Their actions led to a revolution in the West that changed the nature of society. Today’s society has very much been impacted the Protestant Revolution, as strains of Puritanism are still seen in American society, for example, as authors like Hawthorne and Melville have shown.
What I hope to learn from the research is how religious revolution unfolded in Europe and what its…… [Read More]

Evidence of this can be seen with the company being slow to provide information, on the total amounts of oil that are leaking into the ocean and the various restrictions that they have placed on media coverage. (Lack of Transparency Afflicts Oil Spill Response 2010) This problematic, because when there are restrictions and the company is slow to release information, it appears as if they have something to hide. At which point, the public will become furious with the company, from their perceived unwillingness to cooperate. This could have negative political fallout, as various Congressional Committees and regulators will demand all documents relating to the spill. Once this take place, it sets the stage for an ugly showdown with Congress and the White House. Where, they could seek to force the company to disclose more documents and engage in criminal investigations, as these actions give the appearance that executives are…… [Read More]
In this piece van der Weyden depicts the words of blessing from low to high and rightward toward Christ, and the words of damnation are high and move downward toward those that have been damned. The rise and fall of the verbal decisions of the traditional locations of those that have been blessed and those that have been cursed. The artist even went so far as to use color to support the words, which was uncommon at the time; helping to make the distinction in a very visual way.
Acres maintains that although some conclude that a significant amount of modern interpretation of the work of 15th century Netherlandish paintings has been misguided, the most prevalent lesson is a reminder that images' meanings were and are able to "circulate well beyond the purview of contracts and other remnants of early documentation" (p. 109).
