… John 5:13-21

Passage -- John 5:13-21 "Closing Exhortations"

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 and if we know that he hears us -- whatever we ask -- we know that we have what we asked of him.

If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I…. [read more]

What is wrong with Gas Prices?

I am afraid, not many Americans will agree with my point-of-view, when I submit that what is wrong with gas prices is that we have become used to low gas prices. I believe that higher energy prices will benefit United States and our planet in many ways, and I for one would be willing to accept the sharp shock that high energy prices will deal to the gas guzzling ways we, the Americans have taken far granted. (Ferguson, 2006) in an article in the Telegraph joked that if gasoline reached $3 per gallon in United Kingdom, people would be queuing from Beaconsfield to Brighton to buy it. When the price of gasoline hit $3 per gallon…. [read more]

The Great Depression: The Great Crash of 1929 and its fallout

Even today, the causes of the Great Depression are hotly debated by historians. Yet certain facts about the era cannot be denied. During the so-called 'Roaring 20s' more than half of the nation lived at or below the poverty line. This was during an era where there were few available social support structures to help individuals who were struggling or destitute (Johnson 1997: 661). Demand for consumer goods was not keeping pace with supply. Fewer and fewer people had the monetary resources to buy the fruits…. [read more]

… Global Economics

What has caused the U.S. To run a merchandise trade deficit since the early 1980s?

In 2006, the ratio was 1.788.

Imports grew 659% from 1982 to 2006.

Among import categories, the largest gainer in terms of raw numbers is Industrial Supplies and Materials. However, the percentage growth in that category was actually less than the growth of Imports overall. Two import categories dramatically outpaced Imports as a whole. They were Capital Goods (except….

Government expenditure is one of the measures to trigger GDP growth if the expenditure is targeted at investment rather than spending money with…. [read more]

In the Washington Post, an article was published by John Schwartz in which was stated though most paelontoligist feel that the fierce Tynasourus Rex looks like a chicken, because of the anatomical similarities seen between this ancient reptile and the modern bird. But researchers have come to realize that the fossils of some particular creatures found in China resemble the ancestors of the modern bird. These help us to give us critical clues about the structure, function and evolution of the modern birds and their intricate appendages.Several reports of feathers and feather-like structures in various theropod dinosaurs from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning province in northeastern China have been found in recent….

Battle of the Bulge Thesis

… ¶ … Battle of the Bulge

The Second World War has given birth to numerous impressive battles in which the Allies and the Russians were struggling to push the Nazi war machine back. Europe had been in a state of crisis ever since Hitler's attack on Poland in 1939. Matters seemed to get better as the Allies entered the war and the Nazis had encountered difficulties for the first time in the war. However, Hitler would not quit so easily and he decided to launch the Ardennes Offensive (also known as the Battle of the Bulge).

Europe had been a warzone with almost every country on the continent being involved in the fighting. Germany appeared to be invincible as it went on attacking every major…. [read more]


Organization Behavior Case Study

… Organization Behavior

Over the last several decades, the airline industry has been undergoing major transformations. This is because globalization is leading to changes in how firms are competing with each other over routes and passengers. At the heart of these shifts, is a focus on competitors who have lower cost structures and are flying the most profitable routes. For different legacy carriers, this is challenging as their business models must be readjusted to reflect these new realities. The problem is that many of these transformations will result in existing staff members facing the possibility of layoffs and lower wages / benefits. This is a controversial move, as many of these individuals are highly skilled and play a vital role in the well-being of the airline.…. [read more]


Unresolved Issues That Need Case Study

… ¶ … unresolved issues that need to be addressed within the VideoTek company. It appears that the first problems arose with the arrival of outside "big company types" to take control of the company's growth and management. In fact, this element, rather than the growth of the company, appears to have escalated out of control. The first symptoms of the problem lies in the rumors that began spreading throughout the company, that all was not well in management's commitment to the company's originally ethical paradigm. Another symptom is the lack of growth after Jeremy Campbell's appointment as manager. Under his management, new products did not seem to have the attracting power that the company's products did before.

These are all symptomatic of deeper-rooted problems, such…. [read more]


Seven Important Plays in Review Essay

… Tilford actually worries that people can catch lesbianism; clearly the playwright has written this play with the knowledge that society in the Scotland was very suspicious and ignorant about gay people. The tragic ending is made even more outrageous when it is clear that not all of the girls who left Karen and Martha's school were able to get into other girls' schools. The reason was a naive fear that the girls' knowledge of lesbianism could somehow cause an outbreak at other schools.

I really enjoyed the play when I originally saw it, and reading it again reminded me of how difficult it was in the early part of the 20th century to come out and tell the world that you were gay. In fact,…. [read more]


Character Struggle: An Analysis Essay

… " In short, the character of The Comedian is central to both the plot and the underlying message of The Watchmen as he embodies the authors argument that establishing a utopia is impossible.

In Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward: 2000-1887, the character of Julian West serves an opposite function to The Watchmen's Comedian. After being hypnotized for more than a century he awakes in the year 2000 to find the world transformed into a socialist utopia where the problems of economic difficult, human hunger and gender inequality have been resolved. This transition along with his newfound relationships with Dr. Lette and Edith forces West to reflect on his own character and biases and in so doing to change for the better.

Silent Film and How Critical Research Paper

… A good example of the first movement would be Robert Wiene's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari." (Blakeney, 2009) Blakeney write that the films' atmosphere and plot are through visual means almost entirely revealed through use of sets that are "wildly abstract and dramatically exaggerated makeup." (Blakeney, 2009) The film is reported to unfold "in an enthralling completely artificial environment where even the movements of the actors echo the distorted angular shapes of their setting." (Blakeney, 2009)

According to Blakeney (2009), Bazin is correct in the statement that films such as the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari are "an entirely separate art form. The story is conveyed through the intricate interactions between images, lighting, composition, and movement. If The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari was suddenly flooded with…. [read more]


Real Test for Any Proposed Essay

… He writes: "Clever people can always come up with distinctions that put their cases on the prohibited side of the line and other people's cases on the permitted side of the line" (Dershowitz 1). What he means by this is that even though quite a few people would agree that what these people say is offensive, they are important because it creates discussion on an important political issue. People should not be silenced just because the things they have to say are controversial or uncomfortable to hear.

Dershowitz makes a very valid point in this essay. The things that Paulin and Baraka are extremely offensive and often people have the inclination to silence those kinds of people. Yet, this is a slippery slope because once…. [read more]

Anti-Realism (or Constructive Realism) Essay

… The contextual factor may influence which event a person wants explained, but van Fraasen sees this in a tighter way. To him, an explanation "is an answer... To a why question." In other words, you can have just one factor that results in the answer to the problem. Every why question has a topic and one explanatory which posits itself as best solution to that question. Van Fraasen says that these are contextual in origin, but Musgrave shows that the examples that van Frassen gives do not contain any contextual content.

Musgrave continues to demolish various other pieces of arguments that Van Fraasen gives against the realist approach of science showing that many of them are contradictory or confused and when investigated up close lack…. [read more]


Marijuana Essay

… On top of that, marijuana also contains cancer containing components within it and also causes bronchitis and other lung issues even more quickly than normal tobacco cigarettes. Even for AIDS, although marijuana does effectively cause immunity to a certain extent, it still decreases the immune system's positive workings on other terms. Cannabis is not the only plant that has pain relieving elements. Moreover, legalizing marijuana for one use only makes way for further legalization in other aspects as well as over the counter techniques to access the drugs without medical backing. (Bock)

People in favor of legalizing marijuana have their own claims to make, however, it is better to keep marijuana illegal because of the long-term adverse effects it can have on the population. Intoxicants…. [read more]

Constitutional Authority Term Paper

… ¶ … 13th Amendment, Reconstruction, and Circumscription of Federal Constitutional Authority: the Black Codes and the Ku Klux Klan

Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence (1776) that "all men are created equal" under United States law. Throughout U.S. history, however, and especially during Reconstruction from 1863-1877 (see Johnson 1-15) African-Americans have enjoyed lesser rights and protections under federal law than other Americans, especially whites. Part of the "Great Compromise" of 1787 was that blacks (then still slaves) counted as three-fifths of a person in determining numbers of representatives states sent to the House of Representatives (Ratification Debate 2).

Dick / Garreau / Lanier Term Paper

… Dick / Garreau / Lanier / EEG REVISED

Both Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? And Joel Garreau's Radical Evolution explore the questions of what it would mean for technology to create a "post-human" being, to use the term Garreau borrows from Francis Fukuyama (236). Yet the creation of the post-human being would do little to settle the matter of what created the human being, an issue traditionally handled by conceptions of religion and of God. I propose -- through an examination of Dick and Garreau, with additional reference to Jaron Lanier and to the neurological science of electroencephalography -- to approach Dick's and Garreau's vision of post-humanity through the central issue of religion, and more particularly empathy. I hope to demonstrate…. [read more]


Second Language Learning Essay

… On the same English tests, Swedish-speaking Finns consistently did better than Finnish speakers. Because the students came from similar backgrounds, one likely explanation was that, when completing the English tasks, the Swedish speakers get more help from their L1 than Finnish speakers, as Swedish, but not Finnish, is related to English.

Supporting this view is Robert & Williams, (2009) finding that Swedish children already knew a lot of English words when they started instruction in English because of the cognates in Swedish and English. However, it is also possible that some readers are not aware of cognates and cannot exploit this source of information to facilitate their reading comprehension (Cook, 2001). In a recent study, we focused on the English reading comprehension of upper elementary…. [read more]


Operations and IT Management Term Paper

… Cameron Balloons' business process is a complex one. Their goal is to manufacture hot air balloons in the most timely and cost efficient way possible.

They use many resources from many different suppliers. The lead times vary greatly. Some fabric can be available in three days while other, specialty fabrics, can take 8 weeks to arrive. This greatly impacts the turnaround time on manufacturing a balloon. To construct a balloon, many people have to work together. The designers use a special CAD software program that was created in house. Three components to design are: envelope design, airworthiness, and hardware. A balloon with a…. [read more]


Run Lola Term Paper

… Whether or not one imagines Lola considering these three possible futures before setting off (with far more detail than the average human is capable of) is irrelevant, because the film itself, unlike humans, is able to stop, rewind, and start again (indeed, Lola even seems to initiate this process after the first sequence by saying "stop" aloud).

Film's defining ability to segment and rearrange temporal sequences in this fashion allows Run Lola Run to imitate a facet of human experience while simultaneously making a statement about the medium of film itself, revealing that Run Lola Run "has the qualities of a manifesto," in that its argument about film's relationship to the human experience of reality is performative (Revesz 109). This can be seen in the…. [read more]


Right Stuff the Mercury Seven Astronauts Essay

… Right Stuff

The Mercury Seven astronauts are familiar to most. These astronauts were chosen among many to participate in the NASA's Mercury Project and are who Tom Wolfe's book titled the Right Stuff is based on. There are probably several causal arguments which can be found in this book. In order to focus on one such argument for the purpose of this paper, the term causal argument must first be defined. A simple definition of a causal argument is that one event causes another event to happen.

An example of this would be if a woman wears high heels and walks in them all day, the soles of her feet will hurt. So, walking in high heels all day would be the cause of the…. [read more]

There are several risks apparent when investigating issues relating to human subjects. One risk is that the study may have a detrimental impact on the subjects. Further risks are that the study may be skewed by human subjectivity. If questions are asked of the subjects, the answers may not be entirely honest, particularly if the subject is sensitive. Related to this risk is the potential that the study will be impacted by bias on the part of the researcher. This bias can find its way into the design of the research itself and guide the responses of the subjects.

There are no specific ethical issues regarding my study. The subjects are all adults from non-vulnerable groups. The study concerns their professional careers,…. [read more]
