Child That Gives You Joy Every Person Research Proposal

… ¶ … Child That Gives You Joy

Every person has a thing in life towards one feels that it has fulfilled one's existence. It can be a dream partner, a dream job, a new house or an exotic holiday. Whatever makes one happy, it is a thing that makes one smile, become motivated, enjoy life and, at the same time, it is a thing one could never live without.

For me as a grown up and as a woman, the moment that significantly changed my life and gave me new perspectives was fifteen years ago, the moment that marked the birth of my boy.

My world has spun around him ever since. I personally believe that a parent's greatest achievement consists in his offspring. Therefore,…. [read more]


Career Aspirations, My Educational Plans Essay

… " I was appalled to realize that that when translated to English the essence of the name became "School for Retards." On a personal level I loathed the implications of the name, and found it demeaning to both the students and their parents. I felt compelled to act.

My intentions were never to embarrass the school administrators, only to make them aware of the demeaning sense that the name infers. My parents taught me that every individual in this world deserves respect and reverence no matter what their circumstances. With this in mind I sought out the appropriate authority and argued my case. To make a long story short I was pleased that after much debate and effort I was finally able to make the…. [read more]


Taiwan I Was Born Term Paper

… The upcoming World Series will be exciting too. I am also surprised to see how much time is spent on the Presidential elections. Because of all the different countries and governments that have been in Taiwan over our history and what is happening in China today, we do not have many good memories about politics. During the next elections in four years, I hope that I can become very involved and work on a campaign for one of the candidates.

I still write to my friends who are living in Taipei. I hope to go back there and visit them in a couple of years. Even though there are so many wonderful things here in the U.S. I do miss many of the traditions of…. [read more]


Reflecting on Family Essay

… Family

Like most parents, mine only want the best for me. They believed that an American education would afford me the greatest opportunities and therefore when I was fifteen sent me to live in Canada. At first I was scared. I was to live at a home stay, in a complete immersion experience while attending an international school. I did not speak a word of English when I left Taiwan. Therefore, I felt a strange mixture of feelings when my parents saw me off at the airport. On the one hand, I knew they loved me and cared deeply about my future. On the other hand, I felt a tinge of resentment. Being their child meant sacrificing my immediate desires to stay home with my…. [read more]


How Watching TV Outside the Classroom Affects Children's Education Development Brain Behavior Thesis

… Television's Effects Outside The Classroom On Children's Education And Development

In a world where children have access to hundreds of channels of television, 24-hours per day, there has been a concern raised that all of this commercialized media is rotting a generation of brains. Children's television has evolved from a handful of educational programs on PBS and a few hours of Saturday morning cartoons, to a constant stream of multiple channels dedicated solely to children's programming. In America, the average youth spends 900 hours per year in school, and 1,500 hours per year in front of the television (Herr, n.d.). The Kaiser Family Foundation notes that two-thirds of infants and toddlers watch 2 hours of television each day. Kids between the ages of 8 and…. [read more]


Independence of Individual and Separation From Family Across Cultures Term Paper

… Family Independence Across Cultures

Independence of Individual and Separation from Family across Cultures

Different cultures have different perceptions about independence. When a child is born it is dependent to the parent for most basic things. As it grows, he or she discovers and develops his or her own personality. Developments happen in all aspects, emotionally, mentally and physically. These aspects are responsible in differentiating an individual's personality in the society. A person achieves independence when he or she can make decisions on his life without depending on anyone to decide for him or her. Different cultures have different views on independence depending on factors such as age and gender. Several factors are considered in understanding the issue of independence in a culture in order to…. [read more]


Organizational Accountability Review of Taiwan Peer-Reviewed Journal

… Ironically enough, the word "typhoon" means the deadly storm of Taiwan. The most recent typhoon in Taiwan, Morakot, is historically the most damaging.

The impacts of the typhoon are incommensurable in the short-term. In the Morakot Monsoon, there was a loss of over 600 lives and the loss of homes and of entire villages buried in the land or mudslides. Aside from the social aspect of the tragedy, the country faces the long-term economic impacts. The tourist industry, for example, is one of the most important generators of income to the state budget. The Morakot Monsoon caused losses of approximately $500 million (National Disaster Prevention and Protection Commission, 2009). These losses accounted for both destructions within the tourist industry as well as associated losses from…. [read more]


Taiwan Originally, Where Things Are Much Different Research Proposal

… ¶ … Taiwan originally, where things are much different than in the United States. My parents only went as far as middle school. Although they graduated from there they did not go on to high school. My father, instead, took over the pig farm that was run by his family. It has grown a lot since he took it over, and he and my mother have turned it into a very successful business enterprise. Now it includes a large scale and very modern pig farm and other businesses that are associated with it.

My parents have worked very hard -- my father on the pig farm and my mother as a housewife. She has never worked outside of the home, but that doesn't mean that…. [read more]

… Langer, E.J. Rodin, J.(1976) the effects of choice and enhance personal responsibility for the age: A field experiment in an institutional setting. J Pers Soc Psychol. 34(2):191-8.

The literature presented in this article evaluates the effects of enhanced personal responsibility and choice on a group of nursing home residents. The authors hypothesized that the reason why many of the older residents were debilitated was a result of living in an environment where they didn't have the power or ability to make decisions. The researcher also believed that the debilitating effects of the decision-free environment could be reversed if residents were given choices. To prove this hypothesis the researchers evaluated Residents who were in the experimental group. They were presented with a communication that detailed the…. [read more]


Physical Activity in Contemporary Society Term Paper

… Physical Activity in Contemporary Society

In the cartoon "The Answer to Youth Obesity," the artist makes an obvious statement regarding the nature of one America's biggest problems. He portrays an extremely overweight child sitting at his kitchen table with his skinny mother. He has a distressed look on his face signaling his annoyance at the healthy foods which sit in front of him. His mother is attempting to soothe his distress by explaining that "so you'll make a smaller target at school." This represents the idea of curbing unhealthy ways of raising our children, not for their health, but for social acceptance. It is an ugly truth that obese youth have to deal with being ostracized by their peers.

The problem of youth obesity can…. [read more]


Breastfeeding Among South Asian Immigrant Women Term Paper

… Breastfeeding Among South Asian Immigrant Women

"Their Future is Now: Healthy Choices for Canada's Children & Youth" states: "More women are now starting to breastfeed their babies (85 per cent in 2003 compared to 75 per cent in 1995) which contributes to healthier babies and strengthens the important bond between mother and child. However, in 2003, only 19 per cent of recent mothers reported breastfeeding exclusively for at least six months, as recommended by the World Health Organization and the Canadian Pediatric Society. This highlights the need for more support for women to breastfeed, and more information on the factors that prevent women from breastfeeding." (2006) the work of the World Health Organization entitled: "Exclusive Breastfeeding" states that breastfeeding is an "unequalled way of providing…. [read more]


Parent Caregiving: The Emotional Term Paper

… Socialization and social learning theory are alternative models that stress how parents condition, teach, and set examples for their kids. In the matter of intergenerational assistance, these theories intimate that a generation that assists and supports its parents serves as a role model for the following generation. (Ribar, 2003)

Separating these paradigms is critically integral for the following three reasons. First, exchange theory has not been subjected to a level of testing commensurate with its prominence as a paradigm for intergenerational assistance; few studies discuss alternative explications or submit the paradigm to possible falsification. Second, because coresidence and financial assistance are important familial responses to poverty among the elderly (Rendall and Speare 1995), understanding which paradigm undergirds the willingness to help older parents is critical….

Ethnic Studies Gangs Term Paper

… Ethnic Studies - Gangs

Today's diverse groupings of ethnic youth in the United States are individuals of a wide range of characteristics and never has this group been quite so diverse. These groups are comprised of individuals who do not understand the ideology of what the 'American Dream' is truly composed of and it is likely that due to non-engagement of these youth in positive civic activities and alternatively viewing them as 'gangs' that they will never understand that the 'American Dream' includes safe neighborhoods for children to grow up in and that this lack of understanding will perpetuate this framework of thought in society.

The rationale for the following study is the dissemination of the literature reporting ethnic case studies on the gangs in…. [read more]

Negative Effects of Social Networking on Teenagers Term Paper

… Negative Effects of Social Networking on Teenagers

All over the world, social networks are known to bear many negative effects when compared to the positive effects that they bring to the society. These problems come from the increasing popularity of social networks coupled with the little knowledge that teenagers bear regarding the use of these social networks and how it affects them. Teenagers are unaware of the privacy issues concerning their use of social networks as well as the negative influence that these social networks have on their academics as a result of the addictive nature of these social networks that make them neglect their studies. There are also other negative consequences such as cyber bullying and introverting of teenagers as a result of them…. [read more]

Child in Taiwan Term Paper

… Some people might find some of these characteristics unpleasant or stressful, but because of my experience discussed below in my family's restaurant, I have learned that these things are not problems or drawbacks for me, leaving me to consider the positive aspects of being a pharmacist, and whether I am suited for the profession.

Because of the experience I have had in the hospital pharmacy, I have had an opportunity to evaluate the demands of this career well. I have also talked with the registered pharmacists at some length about what they do, and what they like and don't like about the job. The things they object to most, the paperwork and the pressure, are things I have learned to not bother me. I know…. [read more]

Parents Are Both Health Care Workers Essay

… ¶ … parents are both health care workers who created a free clinic in a rural part of Taiwan with a few of their friends. It lacked all but the most basic medical supplies, but the free clinic strived to provide a better environment for the inhabitant Aborigines. Having learned how to take blood pressure with a mercury sphygmomanometer, I asked my parents to take me with them in order to help take care of the simpler tasks. They agreed and took me with them on the trip, but there were many times where there was nothing for me to contribute to their patients.

I decided to make the best and most productive possible use of my spare time by teaching English to the town's…. [read more]


Benjamin Disraeli Once Stated That Courage Research Proposal

… Benjamin Disraeli once stated that courage is the rarest of all qualities to be found in public life. As I look into my future, and seek out what kind of man I hope to become in the public arena, I hope to be among those rare few who display the courage of their convictions and the willingness to live according to their own deeply felt principles.

… ¶ … listening to everyone's stories, the prejudice powerpoint tour and reflecting on your own behavior and attitudes.

Discrimination is something all people come across during their lives and its intensity varies depending on the environment one lives in. Being part of a single parent family, from an Ecuadorian one living in the U.S., from an Asian community in the U.S., and basically having any kind of features associated with a group in particular are elements which can predispose a person's differentiation. Nonetheless, the fact that a person is discriminated does not exempt the respective person for displaying a biased behavior toward other individuals.

Society teaches people that it is likely for other people to behave similar to those in the community they frequent. People…. [read more]

World/asia/07shaman.html?tntemaill=y&_r=1&emc=tnt&pagewanted=all

Asian culture has always been oriented towards nature and the spiritual. These two issues often combine in the shamanistic tradition, which allows enlightened individuals to channel spirits and attempt to contact the living. Chang Yin is one such individual, practicing her shamanistic rituals in the heart of urban Taipei. During the last part of the 20th and certainly the 21st century, many of Taiwan's traditional links with the past have eroded. To rectify this, some modern shamans are bringing their traditions to area where people work -- all in the guise of helping people solve problems. It is interesting to note the Asian…. [read more]


Culture Conflict Research Paper

… Culture Conflict

The conflict that I have chosen is the ongoing issue with the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. A few days ago, China unilaterally claimed an air protection zone around the islands, informing airlines that they would need authorization from China to fly over the islands. This move is another attempt by China to claim sovereignty over these islands, which have belonged to Japan since the 19th century and were uninhabited prior that. The response of the U.S. was declare China's actions a provocation that challenges the status quo in the area and threatens to destabilize the region (Branigan, 2013). Further response has come in the form of Japanese and American bombers flying over the islands, and China's response of sending its…. [read more]

Consequences of Cultural Conflicts Book Report

… This is especially true when the cultural and racial differences are dramatic. Economic exploitation is not uncommon and in the United States many consider the undocumented worker problem a specious argument because the U.S. benefits considerably from a cheap labor source.

Historically, the cultural norms that developed in Europe and America became distinct from the rest of the world. These cultures focused on creativity and a free market, leading to significant advances in the arts and sciences, agriculture, management, communications, literature, and complex social institutions. The result was a culture that valued individualistic progress over a collectivist ideal. Myers (2010) points out that "individualism's benefits can come at the cost of more loneliness, more divorce, more homicide, and more stress-related disease (Popenoe, 1993; Triandis et….

Parent's Selection for Supplementary Tutoring Dissertation

… Diversity can also be discovered in the ages and experiences of tutors. In a lot settings, secondary school students were able to learn a little money by tutoring primary school children, and likewise university students tutor would do the same for those for the secondary students. A lot of the parents in Hong Kong approve of that fact of getting tutored by older people, many of tutors were retirees that had wished that they still to contribute to society and earn some extra money. Among these two excesses of age are others who deliver tutoring on a full-time or part-time foundation, and who may or may not have official training.

An Empirical Study of CPAs Moral Development and Ethical Decision-Making: A Selected Group of Taiwanese CPAs

As a result of such public accounting scandals involving the world's largest public accounting firm, Arthur Anderson, and its unethical mishandling of such corporate accounts as Enron, WorldCom, Merck and Xerox, the public has a low level of confidence in the ethical makeup of Certified Public Accountants. (Coleman, Kreuze, and Langsam: 2004). At the foundation of this ethical disintegration of the profession are cases of poor moral judgments and simply bad decision making. Thus, based off of this finding, a question as to the ethical standards of the profession today have been raised, essentially asking what is, or should be, the ethical code governing Certified Public Accountants?

… Ricardo also argued that consumers would have more purchasing power because they would be able to purchase foreign goods at a lower cost. Ricardo's philosophy became known as the "classical school" of economics and development economists that favor trade are referred to as "neo-classical economists."

This argument is made today. Proponents argue that if third world countries produces goods in which it maintains proficiencies, that these countries will benefit tremendously from the lower cost of production. This has already transformed the economies of Southeast Asia. According to the Economist, "In 1950, the typical East Asian woman had six children. Today she has two.

Bicycle riding has gained new cache as a mode of transportation in the United States. A number of cultural factors influence this trend: firstly, the spike in gas prices, and secondly, an increased interest in green transportation. Finally, bicycles have become trendy fashion accessories, used to convey the healthy and environmentally conscious attitudes of the rider.
