Race and Ethnic Relations Term Paper

… Race and Ethnic Relations

History and location play a pivotal role in defining race and ethnic relations. Through the course of man's history, it has been made clear that there were already differences and seemingly unresolved disputes between some countries. These disputes may be in the form of variation in religion, race and/or social status. That is why until now, there seems to be the most-favored race, the highly criticized religion or the unaccepted slave-master relationship. In relation to this historic disputes, difference in geographical location added weight, particularly in racial conflicts. The Western part of the world is considered the most powerful while the others parts are not. The people in this West side are seen as mighty and clean while others are either…. [read more]

… Keeping Up With the Kardashians

Since its debut in 2007, E! Entertainment's reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians has become one of the most successful ongoing reality series, resulting in seven seasons and at least three successful spin-off series. As a result, it represents one of the most prominent representations of Armenians in America, and can offer some insight into the representation of Armenians in general.

Effect of Single Child Family Structure on the Communication Process Research Proposal

… ¶ … Child Family Structure on the Communication Process

"the family is an extraordinarily rich context or gathering information on human social behavior"

(Floyd & Haynes, 2005, p. 79).

During a hard-line speech in 1979, Deng Xiaoping initially stressed that China's one child policy be put into practice, Steven W. Mosher (2006), president of the Population Research Institute in Front Royal, Virginia, reports in the publication, "China's one-child policy: Twenty-five years later." By 1981, the one child policy had been implemented throughout China. The "technical policy on family planning," which followed two years later, is still in force today. The "technical policy" requires:

IUDs for women of childbearing age with one child, sterilization for couples with two children (usually performed on the woman), and abortions…. [read more]


Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller Essay

… Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller

Willy Loman, the Tragic Hero in Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller

Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman chronicles the life of its protagonist, Willy Loman, a salesman who is portrayed as a product of capitalist America but still subsisting to the beliefs and values of traditional American society. In the play, Willy is identified as a "tragic hero," the protagonist or main character of what would be a tragic story of dreams unfulfilled and disillusionment. While the story centered on Willy as the tragic hero, conflicts between Willy and his family, particularly with his son Biff, set the sad and tense mood of the play. Another perspective shown in the story is the relationship between Willy…. [read more]


Exile II Passing Term Paper

… Bliss Broyard's One Drop

Many people today try to deny that race has continues to play an important and central role in American society. They like to suggest that Americans have moved beyond race, and that it is important only because of the physical differences it dictates. Even those who recognize that race continues to play a dramatic role in the political and social landscapes of this country, like to pretend that some groups have moved beyond racial issues. These groups generally include those that are considered "intellectuals," as if academic pursuits place one beyond the taint of racism and prejudice, as if the basic human drive towards stereotype can be entirely eliminated by education. However, most people know this to be false; America continues…. [read more]


1939, John Steinbeck Published Term Paper

… In the months before the crash, there was widespread speculation. Some economists warned that this boom could not last and pointed out that the price of stocks no longer had any relation to the earning power of the corporations issuing them. Most Americans refused to listen and kept on buying. The market started to fall apart in Autumn of 1929 as prices began to drop. Some bankers purchased more stocks to keep up public confidence, but a panic developed on "Black Tuesday" and produced the crash as stocks in many companies became completely worthless:

By 1929 the market had entered a fantasy world. Conservative financiers and brokers who counseled caution were ignored... On Tuesday, October 29, the most devastating single day in the market's history,…. [read more]


Advertising and Public Relations Serve Case Study

… Clinton was successful by almost every measure except the one that counted, the delegate votes. So the case study allows the student to look at a highly successful advertising and PR campaign that failed. The second thing that stands out is that the campaign was well-structured according to traditional primary campaigns, but failed to take into account changes in the technological environment, even from the 2004 primary campaigns. This case therefore highlights the importance of adaptability and knowing one's audience. Clinton's campaign was lost on tactics, not strategy, and not money. Sometimes in marketing, the subtle nuances make all the difference between success and failure, and the Clinton primary campaign is a perfect illustration of that.

Death of Ivan Ilych Research Paper

… Her husband's focus on the hereafter made life in the present extremely difficult for Sofia Tolstoy. Tolstoy forced his wife to breastfeed all of the couple's thirteen children as a point of principle to be 'natural' like the peasants and demanded that she life in the style of his Christian aestheticism (Flood 2009).

Tolstoy's spiritual writings, as seen in "Ivan Ilych" advance the notion that all is meaningless in life except for faith. "Only in faith can we find for life a meaning and a possibility," writes Tolstoy A Confession (Tolstoy 15). Those who find pleasure in frivolous things are seen as ignorant or in denial, but sadly this point-of-view made the famous Russian author very difficult to live with 'in real life,' given the….

In her book Borderlands: The New Mestiza (1999), author Gloria Anzaldua, a self-proclaimed "borderland Chicana," writes about her experiences living on the border between Texas and Mexico. She describes the experience as being challenging and frustrating because of the conflict of the borderland. She refers to this way of living as being a "marginal person," existing in a perpetual state of transition and ambivalence. She expresses the frustration of what it is like to have the steady influence of different cultures while lacking the ability or the security to claim one of those cultures for herself. She infuses her expression with…. [read more]


Star Power the Influence of Actors and Directors Essay

… Star Power: Influence of Actors & Directors

As an actress, Meryl Streep has chosen not only complex characters to portray, but she has also chosen films with very real and complex social issues at their centers. With such a diverse range of characters she has personified, Streep has a very significant place in not only American pop culture and society -- but worldwide as well. The ubiquitous nature of the media in the last forty to fifty years has given people the ability to become acquainted with stars such as Streep in a very particular way. Streep is viewed in an entirely different way than Marilyn Monroe was in her time for example, because the audience has changed in modern times. Streep's roles in such…. [read more]


Public Relation Is One Marketing Term Paper

… Instead, they aim to deliver a resolution to the issue by promoting new food menu lines that promote and support health concerns of the people. The company even launched a pro-health campaign advertisement. Philips Maddocks, in his article

What Brand is Your Parachute? mentioned information on this stating that 'Last week McDonald's launched its "Go Active! American Challenge," a conceptual advertising campaign if there ever was one. In it McDonald's challenges Americans to fight obesity by eating healthily and exercising without, presumably, thinking about the likely long-term consequences of eating almost anything offered on the McDonald's menu.

Only in an ad campaign could a company that sells many of the foods linked to obesity and unhealthy eating attempt, in all earnestness, to "rebrand" itself as…. [read more]


3g Mobile Technologies on Teenagers Essay

… Persson (2001) said that 3G cell phone use signals a kind of inaccessibility and erects a communicative barrier between your caller and also the other people who are physically near. Gergen (2002) contended that individuals grew to become absent-minded for individuals that are in the proximity while using their 3G cell phone. He recommended a perception of "absent presence," the situation by which everyone was psychologically present somewhere but additionally was absent simultaneously. Gergen (2003) contended the 3G cell phone could provide individuals with more social connectivity simply because they permitted participants in face-to-face groups to connect with other remote groups simultaneously. However, Gergen (2002) also said the same situation could possibly isolate the members in the face-to-face groups.

Emerging and contested designs of 3G…. [read more]


Intergenerational Relationships in Identity Construction Every Night Thesis

Every night, I have the same nightmare.

I search through a crowd of people on an endless expanse of green lawn, pushing past bow-tied waiters in white uniforms who carry trays piled high with biscuits, sandwiches, and tea. [….] Beyond the garden, there is a pavilion trimmed in teak, furnished with cane-backed chairs where the pale, white ghosts of British officers and their wives, the founders of this place, whose names are still etched on the plaques at the front entrance, congregate to laugh at the antics of the natives, swirling their gin and scotch, clinking their glasses.

Chinese-American History the Exclusion Act Research Paper

… Chinese exclusion forced society to redefine what it meant by citizenship. Power distribution in the United States was unequal. The power between the immigrants and the immigration official could not even be called on the same level. Ti was almost as if America was working on a caste system based on the color of the skin. Those that were anything but Caucasian were automatically reduced to a lower caste.

Identity Crisis

Research into the Chinese Exclusion Act is can be divided into a number of disciplines. The most prominent area of Historiography on the subject is examining how the act came about. There is little legal evidence on the development of the Act. Legal historian have had to fill in the missing gaps. The Chinese…. [read more]


American Dream" in Arthur Miller Term Paper

… Finally, Henry Thoreau's first chapter in his book, "Walden," entitled Economy, Thoreau treats economic success and prosperity as a negative element in the society. While Twain had fairly provided the good and bad effects of industrial advancement, Thoreau had disagreed outright and directly about the ill effects of economic prosperity. In Economy, Thoreau criticizes man's eternal need for economic success and prosperity, and he proposes in his treatise that private property ownership (especially assets), acquisition of food, shelter, and clothing, and man's need for education are unimportant activities and goals that man eternally seek. Thoreau proposes to us, the readers, that economic prosperity is not needed for man to survive. In fact, simple living makes a man survive living, without the eternal enslavement that man….

Saudi Arabia vs. American Business Case Study

… Moreover, "academic development rather than social development is of primary concern" (Chaney & Martin, 2012, p. 94).

Social Organization: In the U.S., people separate work from family, and would often choose work over family, when forced to make such choices (Chaney & Martin, 2012). The Saudi culture, on the other hand, places work below family. This explains why businesses, in this case, are mostly family affairs, and why nepotism is seen as an indicator of healthy business, rather than one of corruption (Chaney & Martin, 2012). Saudi people value collectivism; they prefer working with others to working individually. Americans, on the other hand, are often jealous of others' success, and love doing their activities alone, for their own benefit (Chaney & Martin, 2012).

… John Updike Short Stories

Twice the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, before his death John Updike was one of America's preeminent writers and for more than fifty years has portrayed life in America through his stories, essays, and poetry.

Human Resources Labor/Management Relations Which Events Case Study

… Human Resources

Labor/Management Relations

Which events do you feel were most important in shaping the labor relations system? Do you feel that earlier events from the nineteenth-century still have an impact today, or are the current system more of a product of the twentieth-century?

Modifications in labor markets and employment relations in the United States have received substantial attention over the years. The opening position for recounting these changes is usually the institutional construction of labor relations of the postwar era of 1945 to 1975. This era was distinguished by normal full time positions and open ended, long time employment associations that were frequently ordered inside solid inner employment markets. Employees characteristically played out their careers with one company who often treated them like family,…. [read more]


Health Weight and Society the Stress Research Paper

… Health

Weight and Society

The stress on women to appear and act in particular ways is so intensely embedded in their psyches that it's simple to miss the force that mass culture has on how they feel about themselves and their bodies. TV, magazines and newspapers, even surfing the Net, bombard women all the time with airbrushed imagery of ideal beauty and thinness. Inevitably they tend to take in the unrelenting communication that such beauty is the standard, and is attainable, if they could only be thin (Women, Websites and Body Image, 2008). This idea perpetuated by mainstream media that women need to be super thin in order to beautiful often leads to eating disorders. The purpose of this paper is to explore the ways…. [read more]


Newfoundlandese Essay

… Deagle's analysis mirrored the fact that intolerance for sick individuals stems from society's tolerance of practicing euthanasia.

Deagle's discussion of euthanasia presented me with a refreshing analysis of the possible implications that could happen if euthanasia would be generally legalized in most states or countries. The implication that legalized euthanasia would result to the reduced support and budget for palliative care is a strong argument that Deagle presented, threatening the future of healthcare of human society for years to come. Reduced support for the care of the sick would mean that society in general can no longer tolerate people who are incapable of caring for themselves. Similarly, as was pointed out by Deagle in her essay, legalized euthanasia would make it easier for people other…. [read more]


Mbuti Culture of the Congo Research Paper

… ¶ … Mbuti Culture of the Congo

The Mbuti society of central Africa is a sub-category of an ethnic group known to Westerners as "African Pygmies." Since the colonization of Africa by Europeans several centuries ago, the Pygmies have taken root in the Western imagination as a mysterious tribe of tiny, uncivilized forest-dwellers. For a time they were even considered not fully human, being labeled "the missing link" between men and apes (Green, 1995). While it is true that they are small in stature (the average male is only 4' 8" tall), the Mbuti are wholly human and far from uncivilized. They are in fact a sophisticated and ancient culture with an egalitarian social structure that prefigured current ideas of human and civil rights by…. [read more]


Dyskolos the Play's Genre Plays Term Paper

… Dyskolos

The Play's Genre

Plays written after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C. were generally termed as the New Comedy. Menander's Dyskolos, having been written and played in 317-316 B.C. may therefore belong to the New Comedy genre. However, there are particular factors of this genre that identify Dyskolos in this field. The prominence of a prologue is one of the most obvious features of this highly acclaimed play of Menander. The prologue's function was to basically inform the audience about the situation when the action begins. The play was composed of five acts that were divided by interludes which were performed by a chorus with whom do not play any part in the play proper, unlike other comic genres. Dialogues in….

Elder Abuse Phenomenon Correlating Relationship to Elder Mortality Term Paper

… Elder Abuse Phenomenon Correlating Relationship to Elder Mortality

Elder abuse has received increased scrutiny from the law enforcement and healthcare community in recent years. This increased attention is due in part to the increasing number of elderly in the United States and the passage of various laws designed to improve the reporting of such episodes of abuse as well as the prosecution of those who abuse the elderly. Unfortunately, elder abuse is particularly difficult to detect in some cases and studies have shown time and again that many elderly people are highly reluctant to admit to such abuse for fear of reprisals from the abuser or the possibility of being institutionalized if existing domestic living arrangements are disrupted. The purpose of this study was to…. [read more]


Postwar America in Hitchcock Films Research Paper

… One wonders, then, the degree to which scriptwriters' prevailed and Hitchcock subverted for the sake of box office sales.

Regardless of the Hollywood stories, Hitchcock was a master at depicting the exigencies and angst of the several eras in which he produced films. For those films made in post-war America, Hitchcock represented the subtle undercurrents of social change that were just beginning to be felt in the 1950s. The tensions between the sexes as they navigated the tensions engendered by the multiple roles that men and women were seizing or shunning. These gender tensions are exquisitely portrayed in The Man Who Knew Too Much and Strangers on a Train. Moreover, Hitchcock exemplified the public's preoccupation with homosexual stereotypes, and this theme is addressed in a…. [read more]


Media on the U.S. Society Research Paper

… A person's looks may mean nothing if the morals, values and beliefs of that person are not intact or if the person is a failure at leading life to benefit others and be sincere in what he or she does.

In the same way, the TV shows are promoting a culture which surrounds the freedom of these younger generations, giving them the power to do what they want and not be questioned for any of their actions. This reckless kind of life is increasingly becoming the subject of the TV commercials, serials and movies and this creates an urge in the young generations especially the teenagers to go ahead leading an adventurous life where everything seems like a mystery to them and they fail to….

American Dream Throughout U.S. History Essay

… American Dream

Throughout U.S. history, the American dream has been an ideal cornerstone for an individual to start out with nothing. And become even more successful than they ever imagined. This is because America was founded based on a culture of immigrants who arrived and built a life for themselves. Over the course of time, this allowed many families to accumulate tremendous amounts of wealth (by having the perseverance to overcome various challenges).

Evidence of this can be seen with observations from Cullen (2003) who said, "The American dream has long moved beyond the relatively musty domain of print culture into the incandescent glow of the mass media (where it is enshrined as our national motto). Jubilant athletes declaim it following championship games. Aspiring politicians…. [read more]


Housing Discrimination Term Paper

… Legalize Gay Marriage

Legalizing gay marriage

Marriage in the early days was a way for people to create an economically secure unit of a society where children were brought up as good hardworking human beings. Now, in the present times, marriage has become more complicated, or, in other words, the reason for two people to get married has diversified. Now people don't only want to get married for the purpose of reproduction, in fact, there are many that don't want children after marriage, but only get married for the purpose of love, security, or sexual satisfaction (Homer, 1987).

Marriage not only brings two people closer in their personal relationship but is the pathway for better-off, healthier and economically secure lives. It is, however, a surprise…. [read more]


Authenticity in Multicultural Narratives Term Paper

… Although she may not have been a direct witness, the holistic picture of army atrocities she presented was accurate to the interviewer and anthropologist who transcribed her data. Other observers corroborate that the level of the atrocities perpetuated against the subject's people, such as author and independently affirmed eyewitness such as Victor Perera. (1993)

Stoll said that Menchu had no insidious purpose in telling her story the way she did. Rather, her concept of collectivization enabled her to focus international condemnation on the institutional abuses of the Guatemalan army and government as well as merely expressed her point-of-view of herself as a representative of her people. Rigoberta Menchu later 'wrote' again in an oral tradition, an introduction to the text by the anthropologist Margaret Hooks,…. [read more]
