Non-Renewable Energy Data Analysis

There were 143 respondents to the survey. They were 52.45% female (75) and 47.55% male (68). The survey respondents skewed older than the national average. The median age in the UK is 40.5, and 54.17% of survey respondents were over the age of forty. So the age skews only slightly older than the total UK population. Children were underrepresented in the survey. 17.44% of UK citizens are aged 15 or under, but in the survey only 9.03% were 17 or younger. Some 59.03% of respondents reported themselves to be married, with 25% reporting "never married." A relatively low number reported cohabitation or domestic partnership.

Most of the survey respondents were employed, at 59.03%. A total of 4.86% reported that they are unemployed and looking for work, slightly lower than the national unemployment rate of 5.4%. While 10.42% of respondents are over the age of 60, only…… [Read More]

Reform of the International Monetary System

Words: 1054 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 88730573

Reform of the International Monetary System

The proposal for international reform that is most important is the International Lender of Last Resort. An international lender of last resort might have the ability to preclude contagion, in which an efficacious speculative attack on one emerging market currency gives rise to attacks on other emerging market currencies, propagating financial and economic disorder as it goes. Taking into consideration that a lender of last resort for emerging market nations is necessitated at times, and bearing in mind it cannot be provided locally, there is a significant justification for an international institution to occupy this role. This can be linked to Mexico's financial crisis of 1994, where the IMF took the role of lender of last resort and offered emergency lending to nations facing financial instability. On the other hand, an international lender of last resort generates risks of its own, particularly the risk…… [Read More]

The Impact of Queer as Folk on GLBTQ Acceptance

Words: 1935 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 25085164

Cultural Representations of GLBTQ Peoples and Communities in the Mainstream Media

Attitudes and laws in American society concerning the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and queer (GLBTQ) communities have changed in substantive ways in recent years, and many observers credit the cultural representations of these communities in the mainstream media as contributing to this progress. Notwithstanding the progress to date, though, some observers suggest that the status of the GLBTQ communities today is still comparable to the status of women and blacks a half century ago and there is clearly a need for greater understanding of these alternative lifestyles communities by the general American public. To this end, this paper provides a review of the literature concerning current GLBTQ issues in American culture followed by a discussion concerning the manner in which interpretation of mainstream media content such as films, television shows, books, plays or events can provide fresh insights into…… [Read More]

Constructive Learning and Cognitive Learning

Words: 1037 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Paper #: 25045615

Learning

My professional goals with regard to the development of students with whom I work is to enable them to develop a better grasp of the English language and to advance their English language skills in reading, speaking and comprehension. In a sense, my goals are intertwined with their academic success. However, on another level, I can identify professional goals that are independent of my students' outcomes. These are to come to class prepared, enthusiastic about what I am teaching, and always in a positive mood. If I can meet these three goals, I can effect an atmosphere in my classroom that facilitates constructive learning, that promotes engagement, and that supports everyone's desire to want to be there. A teacher who projects surliness and lack of preparation is more than likely to develop an environment in which negativity is the result. It is better to promote positivity in the classroom…… [Read More]

Rising from the Plains

Words: 1815 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Book Review Paper #: 56336464

Rising From the Plains

John Mcphee, a writer of creative nonfiction books, started writing about the earth in 1985. He described the structure and movement of the earth's crust and mantle based on geology. He focused on the theory called plate tectonics which describes the earth's crust as several plates that bump with each other while gliding over the mantle. That theory was accepted only in the latter part of 1960's (decades after this idea was put forward for consideration), based upon geologic beliefs (Quammen, 1998). Rising from the Plains is a good book in itself but can be seen as a sequel to his two earlier books namely In Suspect Terrainand Basin and Range. The book revolves around the Rocky Mountains' geology and an adjacent terrain in Wyoming, both of which are near Interstate 80. The life story of David Love, a Rocky Mountain geologist, and his household was…… [Read More]

Dream Vacation Project

Planning a vacation may not be as easy as one may think. In fact, without proper planning, the vacation may not be a success. One must decide when to travel, where to travel, where to stay, what to see and experience, how much to spend, and so forth. It is actually a process that requires meticulous preparation. This paper provides a plan for a dream vacation in Puerto Rico. The paper particularly pays attention to the schedule, cost, and scope of the vacation.

Time is an important element in vacation planning (Matt, 2013). One must define when to travel and for what period of time. It is not enough for one to just say they are going to Puerto Rico. Saying they are going to Puerto Rico for a certain number of days at a certain time of the year would be more ideal. For instance, instead…… [Read More]

Strategic Thinking Reaction

Words: 1433 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Article Review Paper #: 48754936

strategy came up in my mind: What is strategy? Why is strategy important for an organization? I strongly agree with Rich Horwath in his article "The Strategic Thinking Manifesto" that strategy is all about creating a competitive advantage in the marketplace (Horwath, 2012). It entails knowing what to do in order to be a winner in a stiffly competitive business environment. Strategy can in fact be likened to a sailing race in an athletic competition. Winning the race is dependent on knowing not only the direction of the wind, but also your competitor's moves. It is also influenced by the degree to which members of your team are committed to make the boat remains ahead of the rest. Are they consolidating their efforts to win the race, or are they competing with one another? In essence, strategy is about creating a roadmap to reach a certain desired end, clearly taking…… [Read More]

Carcinoid tumors

Words: 582 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Paper #: 92556461

carcinoid is no longer rare as previously deemed, but rather is accidentally missed or not analyzed in the course of removing the appendix, this has a major prevalence than most current proportion of reported diagnoses.

Carcinoid tumors are relatively unusual, malignant tumors, typically of the digestive track and/or lung. They grow and develop slowly and as a result have a very minimal probability of disseminating across the body. Remarkably, these tumors are abnormal in the sense that they generate hormones, which if let into the bloodstream can cause symptoms such as flushing of the face and/or chest wheezing (Hodgson, 1992). Every so often, owing to the fact that symptoms might be minimal or even lacking, the diagnosis made for carcinoid tumors is usually unplanned, similar to the instances of an appendectomy. The treatment options for carcinoid tumors include radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Surgery is also a treatment option if the tumor…… [Read More]

The Aeneid

Words: 1001 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 96228224

Gods in the Aeneid?

Viewed from Virgil's Aeneid perspective, gods are central to human existence and fate. They determine the fate of all mortals; Aeneid is included in the category of mortals; and is particularly interesting because his mother is a goddess. Jupiter is the supreme god and controls all other gods. Jupiter controls destiny. Thus, other gods are at his mercy. The other gods have their altercations among themselves and often drag humans into these discordances. They may, therefore either help or harm (Christos, 2012).

The fate of Aeneid is beyond the control of the gods. They make attempts to create short-lived diversions or even alter the manner that the fate comes to pass. Venus, Aeneid's mother, and the senior-most cheerleader is Aeneid's mother. She helps Aeneid to navigate the difficulties of life. She has practically protected him against Juno. She gives him sound advice on the direction he…… [Read More]

Speaking Truth to Health Policy: Helping Veterans Readjust

Every day, at least 20 combat veterans commit suicide in the United States, or one veteran every 65 seconds (Shane & Kime, 2016). This alarming trend is attributable in large part to the symptoms that many people suffer from after experiencing traumatic episodes in their lives. Drawing on the sources of power enumerated by Mason, Gardner, Hopkins Outlaw and O'Grady (2016).This paper provides a current description concerning the health policy adopted by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in response to this nation-wide problem to determine how the situation could benefit from having nurses speak truth to power. Finally, a summary of the research and important findings concerning this issue are presented in the conclusion.

Healthcare Philosophies of Christians and Shinto Followers

Healthcare Philosophies of Christians and Shinto Followers

Christianity approaches healthcare from a rather different perspective as compared to Shintoism. The contemporary Western worldview is generally termed 'dualism', which incorporates the idea that evil and good are eternally and continuously locked in combat. Human advancement progresses via rhythms occurring within continuous environment-individual interaction. That is, nurses acquire knowledge of best caregiving practices by working with and understanding fellow human beings, engaging in honest communications with them, and viewing every patient as unique, from a biological, social, psychological, emotional, spiritual and cultural perspective. Christianity claims the Universe and its Creator ought to be considered the principal reality. Mankind views its surroundings using its respective cultural lens, experiences, and worldview. The world is not all evil and unethical; the existence of continuous aggression and brutality around us does not and, definitely, must not influence our worldview. Humanity is a biological specimen encountering immense…… [Read More]

Air Mass

The Texas A&M University (1996-2007) claims that the Continental Tropical air mass is probably what's developing in the state of Arizona. These represent dry, hot air masses being created over southwest U.S. and north Mexico. The air mass makes its way into the U.S. via western Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, and typically moves in the east to northeast direction, carrying dry, hot air to the state of Texas. The precipitation direly needed in summer months is often brought by the thunderstorms and rain showers that form.

Thunderstorms

As per the Texas A&M University's (1996-2007) explanation, a majority of thunderstorms take place during the evenings or late afternoons, following maximum warming by radiation. During late afternoons, instability will probably be at its peak, on account of daytime heating, which increases the PBL (planetary boundary layer)-middle layer temperature gradient. With occurrence of daytime heating, the capacity of…… [Read More]

Song of Myself by Walt Whitman Poetry

Words: 683 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 41474607

Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" continues to evoke strong emotions because of the paradox inherent in the juxtaposition between egotism on the one hand and selfless idealism on the other. The poem therefore encapsulates what it means to be an American, which is why other American poets -- and indeed poets from around the world -- have responded to "Song of Myself" poignantly. When Whitman penned "Song of Myself," the poet was imbuing verse with powerful social commentary that belies the relatively simple diction, tone, and style used. The poet reacts to the troubles in 19th century America, including but not limited to slavery and racism, urbanization and capitalism. Whitman draws attention to the fact that the United States has built itself as an ideal: "the hand of God is the promise of my own." Yet that ideal has been stymied by the struggle for equality, epitomized most noticeably and…… [Read More]

Why Utilitarianism Does Not Work as a Governing Principle

Words: 2662 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 30119650

Utilitarianism: Weighing the Balance

The common good is often spoken of as a principle for social justice: that which benefits the whole should be promoted. Or, that which is universally good should have the highest support. It could be said that this is a utilitarian concept -- yet in modern terms of justice where egalitarianism can appear to be at odds with the "common good," the role of minority voices and diversity present an obstacle in the appeal to universalism. What is good for one set or cultural group may not be good for another. Thus, the question may be raised: Is it just to maximize the happiness for the greatest number of people as the utilitarian approach argues? The answer depends on one's viewpoint. If one believes the democratic principle is the highest principle of all, then might (or strength in numbers) makes right. If, on the other hand,…… [Read More]

President's Address

The counter-terrorism speech given by president Obama came with a couple of messages. His first address touched on the restrictive policy strikes using drones; of course this was not new or restrictive according to prior experience. His second focus was directed at the need to close down Guantanamo Bay detention center. The latter was also not a new stand taken by the president but it surely opposed a long standing position by the powers that be. Here are the major highlights of President Obama's speech.

Sex has not been so lucky though as there is still a cloud of mystery and deliberate misrepresentation, perception and near-superstitious handling of the phenomenon. Sex is the most emotionally involving aspect of human existence. It is not a wonder then, that there is so much confusion directed at it.

Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina

Words: 1940 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 58474787

Hurricane Katrina - Emergency Management

All discussions regarding the Hurricane Katrina need to acknowledge the fact that the primary reason for Katrina having a great impact was task scope and size, rather than human failure. While effective management is capable of modifying disasters, one cannot expect it to eliminate them. Still, it is evident that an increased sense of urgency, enhanced coordination among responder groups, and more efficient management of communication tools and information (intelligence) could have minimized losses brought about by the disaster (Moynihan, 2009).

Nature and extent of the disaster

Hurricane Katrina represented a significant natural calamity that caused human life and material loss. It marked the most devastating of natural catastrophes in the history of the U.S., wrecking no less than ninety thousand square miles of the nation -- an area equal to UK's size. A powerful storm surge destroyed the coastal regions of Mississippi, leaving thousands…… [Read More]

Roosevelt S New Deal and Its Impact on the Great Depression

Great Depression and the New Deal

The Great Depression

The Great Depression was caused by the stock market crash of 1929. The 1920s had been a roaring good time for Americans: credit was easy and investments were going up. In the 1920s, it was known as the Installment Plan -- and "enjoy while you pay" was a popular expression used to lure buyers into the market who could not otherwise afford to be consumers. Credit was used for everything -- including stock. However, when credit expands in the form of shoddy loans, a credit bubble is created. The bubble, in this case, popped in 1929 when the market realized no more credit was going to be pumped in as a result of too many loans to undeserving customers were being made (i.e., customers who could not pay them back). With the market correction came the margin calls and accounts had…… [Read More]

Persistent Threats

One of the biggest risks that companies face is advanced persistent threats.

Advanced persistent threats can be very harmful to a company and can come in various forms as hackers have a variety of methods in their tool belt; however, on the receiving end, companies should be prepared for cyber attacks -- and yet they often are not, because of carelessness, neglect, lack of oversight, regulation, accountability, transparency, review, and an ability to conduct proper assessment. APTs are happening all the time and can be traced to origin locations all over the world (Norse, 2016). Cyber security should be therefore a number priority for any and all businesses that utilize information systems software and hardware. As the Norse Map shows, countries in both the East and the West are waging cyber war against one another; cyber security is therefore a real going concern for all (Norse, 2016).
