Comic Book Fun Home Essay

… The same has been seen in the case of Alison, the book has mentioned that the shoes of the parents are aligned and cleaned on the daily basis by Alison to feel that both her parents are there for her. Alison has shown repetitions in kissing animals, and writing 'I think." Some of the main repetitive behaviors that are shown by her father are based on his attempts to contain his gay nature. These behaviors include taking care of the family's home, looking after the home garden, and making sure that the outlook of his daughter is increasingly feminine. In these cases, it needs to be mentioned that gender has often been defined as a repetition of certain kinds of acts in a certain style.…. [read more]


Counterterrorism in the Contemporary World Thesis

… However, we are unsure if they are chartered or equipped to provide a human analyst to specific potential segments, which would be vital (Bamford, 2003).

Analysis & Planning -- Information is necessary, but taking that information and turning into a combination of strategic and tactical goals that are legal, make sense, and can operate both in the United States and off shore makes it rather complex. Thus, three agencies would need to merge a department that would employ the best sides of the FBI (domestic), the CIA (off shore) and the State Department (foreign policy). To minimize turf wars, the combined department should report to Homeland Security, but be able to utilize the resources of the three agencies. There should be a senior level liaison…. [read more]


Ten-Year Billionaire: Mark Zuckerberg Essay

… In fact, what appears to have motivated Facebook's leadership team and employees is the fact that what they are doing is having a global impact and generating enormous revenues in the process. Moreover, it would be unfair to categorize Zuckerberg as this type of leader or that, because he has not had that much opportunity to develop a mature leadership style of his own that can be cited as a relative constant. At present, then, Zuckerberg appears to be a situational leader who combines transactional and transformational leadership techniques and who relies on his own business savvy and intuition for the big decisions, while delegating the nuts-and-bolts operations wherever possible.

How Mark Zuckerberg has made an Impact on the World through His Vision, Business, and…. [read more]


Popular Music Term Paper

… Who needed to be just a Guitar Hero when they could now be an American Idol. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Idol.) But this invitation to include everyone into the game of rock and roll surely meant that the messages would be more down-home, more personalized to the lives of many and less about challenges to whichever system.

But when this version of music and rock and roll is written, what it really sound like?

In the age of interactive digital participation, it's very difficult to tell. However, some people feel it will come in packaging that looks a lot like what is happening with the digital book industry. In a publication called Publishing in the Digital Era, consultants for the book publishing industry start by saying that their…. [read more]


Galileo Product Idea Description Essay

… Certainly, there is just not enough conventional air reconnaissance to go around at this level. Telematics can play an important role as a force multiplier by giving these lower level leaders the reconnaissance information that they need very quickly. However, given shrinking potential defense budgets, they may need to do this more cheaply that they are now doing it (Campbell 2010, 5-6). For the infantryman the philosophy is better, cheaper, faster and good enough. Turn-around time to support the infantryman in battle is critical. The central issue is the interface and if it is inter-connectable with the other soldiers and units in the area of operations (Henderson and Lyke 2010, 14).

The above reasoning is especially the case for NATO countries where defense budgets are…. [read more]


Hospitals Origin Organization and Performance Essay

… ¶ … healthcare organizations are complex bureaucracies that have one overall goal, but several different interpretations on how that goal is to be met. Within the modern hospital, there are competing stakeholders, three important influences being medical staff, board of trustees, and administration. Typically, despite their best intentions, these groups are often fraught with tension because their view of the goal of the organization is somewhat different. The medical staff, for instance, is interested in quality of care, modern technology and superior staffing -- all which are costs to the organization. The administration is interested in keeping profits up and costs down -- and tends to look at the paradigm in a fiscal way, sometimes removing the human element or the intellectual/research issue of cutting….

Globalization and Culture Thesis

… (Lieber and Weisberg, 2002, paraphrased) American is not only a point of origin according to Lieber and Weisberg but as well, it is a style. (Lieber and Weisberg, 2002) Cultural anxiety and turmoil are both a result of globalization and American primacy and this is witnessed differently in terms of outcomes in the West and in other modern societies when compared to developing countries and most particularly Muslim countries. Cultural anxiety and turmoil are stated to be a result of "two related but distinct phenomena: (1) material and economic effects of globalization and modernity; and (2) Western values which are "more tangible but often more profound in its impact. Included are such as "scientific reasoning, secularism, religious toleration, individualism, freedom of expression, political pluralism, and…. [read more]


Service Providers on Special Student Research Paper

… There is considerable evidence indicating that school characteristics such as inflexible scheduling, culturally insensitive environments, rigid instructional strategies, ineffective special student engagement, and poor curriculum design which fails to recognize cultural differences and values, inhibit academic achievement-especially among low-performing special students (Giroux, 1994; Hixson & Tinzmann, 1990; Klem & Connell, 2004; Richardson & Colfer, 1990). Unlike the environmental factors previously mentioned, educational service providers nonetheless have considerable influence over delivery of services with respect to curriculum, scheduling, text selection, and instructional strategies. Of particular interest to this researcher are instructional strategies-specifically, pedagogical practices that provide support for special students -- and how low-performing and high-performing special students might perceive them differently.

This chapter presents a synthesis of the literature as it relates to the role…. [read more]


Rousseau the Origin of Civil Society Research Paper

… Rousseau

When Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote the Origin of Civil Society, Europe was becoming enmeshed with its colonial enterprises. Ironically, this was also the time when Enlightenment philosophy and theory spread throughout Europe. The Enlightenment helped to pave the way for the French and American Revolutions and spawned interest in freedom, liberty, and individuality. Slavery -- both real and symbolic -- became the topic of conversation in philosophical circles when the French Revolution and the American Revolution were already being underwritten. The idea that government serves the people and not the other way around, was just starting to take root. Rousseau, like many other Enlightenment thinkers, proposes a humanist vision in which inequality is abolished in favor of the true civil society. The civil society, according…. [read more]

… Starting Up a Business

Start Up Business

Over the last several years, after school programs have increased in popularity. A major reason for this is a shift in demographics of the country. Where, an increasing number of children in public and private schools are: coming from backgrounds that may require them to learn English as a second language. Then, when you combine this with the increased amounts of working single parents and both parents working, increases the chances that children will spend more time alone. It is at this time that the odds increase, that a child will become involved in activities, which can get them into trouble. In the cases of Spanish speaking children, the chances for them to become involved with the wrong…. [read more]


Culturally Responsive After School Programs for Native American Youth White Paper

… Culturally Responsive Programs

Culturally-Responsive After School Programming

Native American youth are too often overlooked when social workers are crafting programs that reach "at risk" populations. While those programs are generally available to youth in need without regard to ethnicity, Native American youth may have particular challenges and needs that go unmet unless programs are specifically targeted at them. In the state of California, where the second largest population of Native Americans can be found, some innovative after-school and outdoor adventure programs have emerged. These programs were formed with Native Americans specifically in mind as a target population; as a result, they are better able to focus on specific needs and expectations associated with that population. This essay will begin with an overview of the Native…. [read more]


Genesis 50 15 21 Thesis

… Genesis 50: 15-21

When Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, "What if Joseph holds a grudge against us and pays us back for all the wrongs we did to him?" 16 So they sent word to Joseph, saying, "Your father left these instructions before he died: 17 'This is what you are to say to Joseph: I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.' Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father." When their message came to him, Joseph wept.

His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him. "We are your slaves," they said.

But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid.…. [read more]

… Managing Information Technology - Set of Four Reports

Knowledge Management in Health Care

Managing, organizing and making available to healthcare professionals the many types of content that comprise knowledge management systems require a flexible yet comprehensive content management framework as a foundation and process-based workflows at the user-level to stay continually relevant over time. Enterprise content management (ECM), and within that framework, Digital Asset Management (DAM), has lead to the development of medical knowledge management systems that deliver significant value over time. As this medical field specifically relies on both structured content in the from of patient records, and digital content in the form of x-rays, microphotography of their eye condition, and digital imagery of specific patient conditions, the need for a knowledge and content….

Racism and Racial Stigmas in Crash Thesis

… Racism and Racial Stigmas in "Crash" and Other Films

So, America's big cities are full of racial tensions, right? And the theory goes that Caucasians don't like African-Americans very well, Black folks are fed up with the white racist majority culture, and other ethnicities like Asians, Latinos, and Native Americans struggle for acceptance and fairness in a racist society - right? That's correct, if you believe what you see and hear and feel in "Crash."

And granted, life isn't really as bad - and people couldn't possibly be as rude, hateful and unbendingly racist - as one would believe if taking the film "Crash" literally. But life is bad, pretty darn bad, for a lot of people who live in greater L.A. - or in…. [read more]

Current Trends, Innovations and the Future of Corrections in the United States and Abroad

One of the unfortunate ironies of living in the "Land of the Free" today is the fact that the United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other country in the world. This paper provides a review of the relevant literature to identify current trends, innovations and the future of corrections in the United States and in foreign countries. To this end, a personal perspective and thoughts on the future of corrections in the United States is followed by an overview of the major problems in the current system. A series of recommended specific actions to resolve these major problems is followed by an assessment of some of the…. [read more]


Culture on Brand Building in the Chinese Term Paper

… ¶ … Culture on Brand Building in the Chinese Market

Recently a great deal of discussion has taken place regarding the best approach to build a successful brand in an increasingly globalized market. A globalized market is defined as including emerging markets, which are quite different from the markets found in the developed world. Prior to the influx of the globalized market place, corporations did not concern themselves with geographically distant marketplaces. (Ayala, 1996).

In today's market, a majority of the established brand names come from the Western world. (Chan, 1997). However, as these Western brands expand into the international market, and thus into new markets in developing nations, these companies have realized that foreign markets are often more attractive than their domestic counterparts. For…. [read more]


Hofstede Writes, Culture Term Paper

… Hofstede writes, "Culture is more often a source of conflict than of synergy. Cultural differences are a nuisance at best and often a disaster." (www.geert.hofstede.com) Interesting words emanating from a Professor of Culture, but ones that may resound in truth, especially for China and New Zealand.

These words by Hofstede echo in ambiguity. The dearth of precision, and the lack of a universally applicable framework for classifying cultural patterns, has been a topic of research and explorations for a plethora of academicians.

Hofstede presents the most famous and most often cited work in this area. Styled an organizational anthropologist, Hofstede structured his world-renowned "culture dimensions" analysis from examining work-related values in employees of IBM during the 1970s. In his original work he divides culture into…. [read more]


Nurses Deliver Evidence-Based Care? Term Paper

… (Beyers, 104)

It is worthwhile to extend some evidences that visualize the prevailing results of EBN. Empirical data demonstrating the efficacy of nursing intervention have been visualized to exert a crucial part in performing the distinction in patient consequences, when applied properly. One such clinical study, analyzed the efficacy of the self-management program on COPD patients. Bourbeau and Maltais, et al. during 2003 organized randomized, blinded regulated trial on 191 stable COPD patients and followed up for the whole year. About 96% were dispensed to a self-management program offered by case managers for an hour a week in the home of the patients for about seven to eight weeks, and simultaneously about 95% were offered to a regulated group. The patients in the self-management group…. [read more]


Youth Librarians and Homework Centers Developing Term Paper

… Youth Librarians and Homework Centers

Developing Homework Centers in Public Libraries

Why homework in public libraries? What are the academic needs and ramifications from the child's perspective?

There are numerous good reasons (Mediavilla, 1) as to why homework centers in public libraries are very important, and why educational and social activists pursue the development of such centers. Indeed, in the first place, children left alone after school, according to research by the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice, do not succeed academically as well as those who participate in after-school programs; this is not rocket science, this is pure, simple common sense fact.

Number two, according to Cindy Mediavilla's book, Creating the Full-Service Homework Center in Your Library, children who have…. [read more]


Leadership the Only Constant Term Paper

… In fact, it is worth noting here that one manual on military leadership states, "Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience." (Heart Quotes Center)

Leadership by example is also important to facilitate the development of people and empower them to lead themselves. In other words, a good leader is someone who is a teacher and coach rather than a director. One leadership analysis calls such a person a "Superleader." (Harris, 1993, p. 373) Business organizations are now increasingly beginning to grasp the importance of such leadership, as evidenced by the emergence of the learning organization and the emphasis on employee empowerment. Marriott Hotels, for example, empowers its employees to spend $10 at their discretion to satisfy guests. In…. [read more]


Human Cloning: The Ethical Debate Term Paper

… That would end abortion, in vitro fertilization, and many types of prenatal genetic testing in the United States.

There are many reasons why human cloning is unethical, but, in my opinion, the greatest reason is that it would destroy the way that families and children are created and built. However, looking at the issue from a scientific perspective, the possibilities for humanity outweigh the risks. Human cloning research would allow doctors to determine the cause of spontaneous abortions, give oncologists an understanding of the rapid cell growth of cancer, allow the use of stem cells to regenerate nerve tissues, and advance work on aging, genetics, and medicines (Jones, 1998).

Opponents and supporters agree that at the current time the technology is not safe enough to…. [read more]


Amy Attended the County's Administrator Term Paper

… Those who have lost jobs believe a higher degree will help them get back in the market, and those who have jobs believe a masters degree will protect them in the future. In addition as adults move through their careers they develop an interest in promotions and advances requiring master level degrees, but they do not always have the freedom to attend courses.

Many of our students are going back to school to improve themselves or for a love of learning," said Murphy. "Most come back for reasons related to their careers -- they want a promotion or a career change."

Distance learning classes have grown at an exceptional rate since 1996, when they were first offered. Currently, there are at least three million distant…. [read more]


Interaction of Characters in by Capek and the Film AI by Spielberg Book Report

… RUR and AI: More Human than Human

In both RUR by Karl Capek and, the film AI by Steven Spielberg, the strange dichotomy between creator and created is explored in both works. For both works, technology turns out to be a path not to paradise but to hell not just for humans, but also for machines who turn out to be less than content to be the alteregos of their masters and strike out, rebel or are discontent with humanity's treatment of them. While technology and the sophistication of special effects may have caught up with Karl Capek's original 1921 debut masterpiece, the central question of thinking machines, cyborgs and artificial life forms has been a part of the human consciousness.

It is the contention…. [read more]


United States Has Become Preoccupied Essay

… But, America is making its best effort to educate common people as they should understand the laws and regulations to follow and to elect the right person as their representatives (Kurth, 2009).

Military development:

The innovation in military is changing the way of war of America. As American economy is re-creating itself, the America's military has also started taking advantage of the technology. In 20th century, there was no other power to match America's military power.

United States military instruments serve several crucial purposes such as to facilitate the Beijing's integration into cooperative security oriented processes and…. [read more]


Daniel Barenboim Essay

… Daniel Barenboim: Music Is Life

Daniel Barenboim presents music as away for human beings to explain the world around them. For Daniel, music can be used as a catalyst for both positive and negative forces, as well as a way for humans to grow, heal, and further understand the human condition. The wide scope of purposes that music has and uses it can fulfill makes it one of the most wonderful agents of realization and reflection on the planet. Music can also be used to draw conclusions about what makes a society successful, and what people can do to create a better world.

Barenboim starts by acknowledging that with music, as with life, timing is very important. The tempo and timing of a piece or…. [read more]


Ethnic Entrepreneurship Personal Characteristics of Turkish Entrepreneurs in the UK Term Paper

… Ethnic Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship:

Entrepreneurship studies have consistently pointed out that opportunity recognition has been an essential characteristic of all entrepreneurs. In fact, the most commonly cited definition of entrepreneurs uses opportunity recognition as its benchmark. For instance, Bygrave and Hofer (1991:14) give the following definition of entrepreneurs:

Who perceives an opportunity and creates an organization to pursue it;" (Bygrave and Hofer 1991:14).

Similarly, Shane and Venkataraman (2000:218) in their management review also defined opportunity recognition as a benchmark of entrepreneurship. They write:

We define the field of entrepreneurship as the scholarly examination of how, by whom, and with what effects opportunities to create future goods and services are discovered, evaluated, and exploited;" (Shane and Venkataraman 2000:218).

Two distinct attributes of opportunity recognition have been the…. [read more]
