War in Defense of the Status Quo
The ironic thing about the Korean War is that it was begun (by North Korea) in an attempt to change a status quo that no party involved was particularly satisfied with, in search of an end result that all parties agreed would be ideal (the unification of Korea), and millions of deaths later ended by reestablishing the same static situation it had originate to eliminate. The war was begun, modern perspective tells the historian, because North Korea desperately wanted to reunite the nation under a single "people's government." The irony of the situation is that South Korea also wanted to unite the nation under a single "government of the people" -- the only difference was the question of which regime supported by which superpower should rule the people. North Korea very nearly managed to unite the nation under communist rule within a matter of….

No doubt, when Columbus first set foot on the shores of the West Indies, he felt foreign. No matter how courageous he was, Columbus was only human and therefore had to have been afraid. Likewise, I questioned myself when I first made the decision to transfer.
Like Columbus, I thrive on healthy risk-taking and the excitement of new situations and surroundings. I enjoyed moving, in spite of my fear of new circumstances. There are several reasons why I enjoy the high level of stimulation of change. First, I have learned how adaptable I am, how welcoming I am to the changes that inevitably follow human beings around. The people who cling to stability are more likely to be shaken up by radical changes than those who have weathered a few twists and turns on their own. Second, I have learned that I am an independent and forward thinker. While not….
Mass Shootings Acceptable?My opinion on this issue is that mass shootings are not something we have to accept. This opinion is rooted in data, as recent surveys have shown that the majority of Americans oppose mass shootings and believe that more should be done to prevent them. My opinion is also stable and unwavering, as I firmly believe that mass shootings cannot and should not be accepted under any circumstances: after all, why should we as a civilized society accept such a brutal pre-conditioning? We should be able to do something to prevent mass shootingslike address the underlying factors that cause them.In fact, I believe that it is our responsibility to do everything we can to prevent mass shootings from occurring and to ensure that the victims of these tragedies receive justice. T90 shrug them off as inevitable is to show the kind of calloused thinking that leads to the….
Civic EngagementThe right to vote is a constitutional one in the US and it was passed by Congress in 1869: it ensured that everyone had the right, regardless of race, creed or color. Yet nearly a century later in the US, people were still being segregated and discriminated against because of race, creed and color. Why? The reason is that the power structure in the US did not want certain types of people voting or having influence or power of their own. It is why many immigrant communities were broken up by federal plans to create new interstate roads. It is why there have only been two Catholic presidents and one black one in the nations more than 200-year history. The US has always been a fundamentally WASP-driven affair, with help from elite (often Jewish) families that dominate banking, finance, and media. There is no room in that paradigm for….
Puerto ico became a possession of the United States after the Spanish-American War in 1898, but has never been fully incorporated into the Union (Pantojas-Garcia, 2013). It later became a Commonwealth in 1952, a status it maintains to this day. The subject of the status of Puerto ico has, since that time, been controversial. There have been multiple referendums on the subject, the latest in 2012, but as yet there has not been a change in the status of Puerto ico. The 2012 referendum indicated a majority of Puerto icans want the status of their territory changed, with most preferring full statehood. Yet this number is not sufficient to break what is essentially a stalemate, and there are other options as yet on the table. This paper will look at the issue of the stalemate, its causes, and will explore the ideas of solutions.

Leadership development is one of the most fundamental concepts in nursing practice. Nursing management should be more than issuing orders and ensuring that things are done in the right way. Leadership development in nursing ensures that nurses develop leadership qualities, which include innovativeness, flexibility, dynamism, the ability to inspire others and challenge them to think beyond the norms, and the ability to challenge the status quo and dare to be different (Kerridge, 2012).
Equally important is Magnet Hospital ecognition Program. According to the American Nurses Credential Center (ANCC), Magnet is, intended to promote quality in a milieu that supports professional practice, identify excellence in the delivery of nursing services to patients/residents. Magnet is also….

Gender is often considered an immutable trait, linked inextricably to the biological sex one was born with. However, research over the past several decades in a multitude of fields including anthropology, psychology, and sociology shows that gender is socially constructed and not innate. Gender is projected onto children before they are fully cognizant of their surroundings, dressed in gendered clothes and channeled into gendered activities. A child is rarely free to construct his or her own gender. While it is rare for a person to be born hermaphroditic, it is not rare at all for someone to dis-identify with their socially prescribed gender and therefore deviate from the norm. Some forms of gender-bending are considered normative, but only in certain contexts. For example, a young girl can be a tomboy without serious social consequences but if she continues to subvert traditional gender norms, she risks social stigma. The level of….

The presentation of propaganda is one of the ways political agendas are advanced using the educational system. Historically, educational systems are used to teach ideas that are often scientifically false. An example of this would be the teaching of the inferiority of blacks as a way to shape the argument on race relations during the slavery period. A more recent example of that practice would be the attempt to change the content of text books to shape the concerns relating to the evolution and creation debate. The pro-creation side of the debate would like text books to not contain statements that support evolution. The debate for civil rights and in particular gay rights required educational changes to advance the movement. The gay rights movement while political is supported by having an educational system that suggests gays should have rights. This approach uses education to shape the ideas of future generations….

The greater product focus will eliminate a key weakness of not being strong at any one market. Professionals and consumers have distinctly different needs, and Palm needs to figure out which of these it is more likely to meet and then pursue that to the detriment of the other. Pursuing both has left it vulnerable. The only real opportunity in smartphones is with innovation, as the market has tended to always reward the most technologically innovative firms. Thus, HP needs to focus on building the innovation level at Palm. This still subjects it to threat, especially in the direct competition with three very powerful entities. However, HP is accustomed to competing vigorously against firms the size of Microsoft, Google and Apple and succeeding, so Palm provides the company with just another opportunity to do this, and to do it with the benefits of the HP warchest and customer base.

Gender, Sexuality, and Identity -- Question 2 "So, is the category bisexuality less or more threatening to the status quo than is homosexuality?"
The passage suggests that in fact, rather than presenting patriarchic constructs of identity with less threatening formulation of human sexual identity, bisexuality does the exact opposite -- it presents common social norms with the more threatening notion that human sexuality is not an either/or 'Chinese menu' option of stable choices. The practice of homosexuality, even when it is deemed taboo and beyond the pale of the human sexual order is still a 'comfort' to the heterosexual norm. The construct of homosexuality suggests that human sexuality exists in an either/or dichotomy. So long as one is attracted to the opposite gender one is, in essence, safe from the presumably aberrant, even pathological orientation of homosexuality.
However, bisexuality presents a potentially fluid rendering of human sexual desire, whereby even the presence….
Lastly, the sixth issue is that the hospital has no relationship with an HMO. They have not been able to come to an agreement with Kaiser Permanente. This reduces revenues, reduces traffic flow and creates a problem where Kaiser is building a new hospital in the area that will directly compete with EMC.
3. Perform a financial analysis of EMC. Based on the analysis, where is the company strong and where is it weak?
EMC's financial position is weak. The company is faced with a steep decline in its cash position, which makes it difficult to invest in the future. The company is also relying on its investments for cash flow, and the current investment climate makes this a challenge. EMC has seen a strong increase in net patient revenue in 2002, reversing a flatlining trend. However, operating expenses have been a long-term increasing trend, and ballooned in 2002. Salaries and….
Civic Values in the U.S.
estoring democracy and civic virtue in the United States will require major reforms that reduce the power of corporations, elites and special interests in the whole political process. ight now, there is a radical disconnect between the political and economic elites and the needs and interests of the ordinary voters. Most people today realize that the country is in its worse crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s, but government and the political system seem dysfunctional and incapable of dealing with it. emoving the power and control of big money from the political process forever would be the most important step in revitalizing American democracy and making the system more representative and accountable. So would eliminating the Electoral College and electing the president and vice president by a majority of the popular vote. Despite the protests of small states, only this type of reform might….

Leaders Can Effectively Manage Change in an Organization
It has often been said that a manager is what one does and a leader is who one is. The differences between management and leadership transcend difference sin perception of how an organization and emanate from how a management professional chooses to gain support and cooperation in the attainment of objectives. Managers often are given the task of maintaining the status quo and minimizing variation in performance over time. Leaders are by definition the visionaries of an organization that set a compelling long-term goal or objective and then orchestrate an enterprise to their achievement. Implicit in this definition of a leader is also the ability to discern strategies issues, opportunities and risks, and also clearly communicate an organizations' strategy to the departmental or work unit level. Most of all, a leader can infuse any organization with a strong sense of purpose, energy….
