Homosexual Marriage Does Not Pose Term Paper

… We live by a double standard, allowing media expression of heterosexual freedom of expression, but insist upon "public suppression of the lesbian or gay person's sexuality." For example in the television show Melrose Place several outrageous heterosexual characters freely indulge in wild abandoned sex, while the "discreet homosexual" Matt, never even comes close to an on camera kiss. "The purpose and effect of this double standard," says Eskridge, "is the public suppression of the lesbian or gay person's sexuality." Such suppression is both mentally and politically "unhealthy" (Eskridge 183-188). I would in fact go farther toward stating that this double standard is extremely debilitating to the American psyche and would suggest how illuminating and mind-stretching it might prove if American's were offered a new and….

Nineteenth Century Physiologist Claude Bernard Term Paper

… " The experiments involved cruel and heartbreaking methods to obtain results. Experiments like these are fundamentally wrong. It can be equated to the Nazi's during the Second World War conducting experiments on humans to improve the life of other humans. (Newton & Lyons, 2001) These experiments are sadistic and they should be stopped as quickly as possible.

There are better ways for finding the effect of lifestyle even on animals. Better records can be kept of veterinary visits or medical treatments that are conducted for the benefit of animals. This data can be then synthesized to obtain any trends and observations in the data collected.

The John Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing was set up 20 years ago in the U.S. It is…. [read more]

Teacher Perceptions of Student Achievement Based on Student Appearance Research Paper

… Teacher Perceptions of Student Achievement Based on Appearance

Perception is around us at all times; it was integral in our evolutionary behavior from ape to man; it allowed us to make judgments based on values, prior knowledge, and cultural norms. Perception is really two types of consciousness: phenomenal (observable) and psychological. However, the reality is that both types are often subjective. We may observe something and take away a variety of messages that may or may not be correct about the event; or psychologically, we may have such a bundle of preconceptions that we are unable to get past the historical and act on the present and potential. Our cognitive selves, though, have evolved to make these judgments and search for ways to categorize new…. [read more]

… BELONGING, WEB 2.0 AND INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

This work reports a study in which 24 international students were interviewed in a research initiative that seeks to understand how international students adjust to the host culture and specifically how use of the Internet or Web assist them with this integration process. This work conducts an extensive review of literature in this area of study and examines the theoretical framework of what it means to 'belong' to a country or location. Research questions asked in this study are those of: (1) What role does Internet technology (Web 2.0) play in the international student's development and maintenance of a sense of belonging in a new home country? (2) What role does length of residence play in the international student's…. [read more]

… Ohio Corrections

Corrections Through Just Desserts: A Multi-Agency Collaborative Approach

The orientation of our government is essentially a composite of agencies whose capacity to function both independently and in concert with one another serves as a key determinant of the effectiveness of the policy implementation of our public officials, the dexterity of the government in engaging criminal pattern and the ability of the people to access the policy realities of their elected representatives. Any negative connotation appended to such bureaucracy as manner of conduct, policy or procedure may find its roots in the elected leadership by which it is oriented or the sway of public opinion. Still, this is a form which ultimately enables the high level of coordination that will emerge between government agencies…. [read more]


Education Review Term Paper

… Education Review

It is now understood that the traditional form of education needs to be changed. First, students will face a completely different environment when they go on their own into a fast-paced and global world. Second, more studies are recognizing that children learn very differently, and the teacher-lecture approach does not provide the best education for everyone. Third, in today's environment, knowledge is the main product for sale. To develop this product, students need a high-quality specialized learning situation. Increasingly, schools will have to offer well-rounded education to successfully prepare the next generations of students to meet a wide variety of experiences and face many different challenges.

The Industrial Age required more workers than thinkers, so in most respects school was available for learning…. [read more]


Schlosser: Fast Food Nation Term Paper

… It is to be traced out whether the advertisers be allowed to aim the children who are deprived of the sophistication to make informed conclusions and are necessarily allured to consume fat, high calorie food through toys and cute corporate mascots. It is to be investigated whether the fast food companies like tobacco companies are engaging younger consumers so as to assure a persistent consumer base while their older consumers die of heart diseases, diabetes and other obesity-related disorders. (Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal by Eric Schlosser)

The Jungle of Upton Sinclair is considered to be the first ever book to protest against the appalling abuses inherent in mass-produced beef. In the decades ever since its publication, the state of…. [read more]


Johnson and Johnson the Fundamental Term Paper

… The constant fear of inflation continues to provide cause for stocks to become overvalued and has become an almost daily trend for announcements from the Fed and their efforts to not overvalue the Dow, NASDAQ and other markets. Investors have to grasp that stocks are only inflation proof when the underlying companies are profitable in spite of the effects of the economy.

Globalization

A real trend in the healthcare industry has been the continued migrations of industry players into developed and newly emerging markets. The twenty-first century's new world order appears to have been founded on a single, global, technologically advanced, highly competitive economic market place. This single global market is also being serviced by fewer industrialized powers that are teaming together to form free…. [read more]


Anthropology Andean Indigenous Interest Term Paper

… The largest concentrations of native peoples are found in Mesoamerica and the Andean region. The greatest territorial dispersion is found in the Amazon Basin. They speak more than 400 different languages, display a wide range of lifestyles, and have achieved different levels of development. They occupy diverse ecosystems and maintain differing relationships with the countries and societies within which they live. A large percentage of the inhabitants of high-lands are peasant farmers and herders; while in the tropical forests, they are mostly farmers, hunters and fishermen. Those who live in the highlands have a long tradition of contact and involvement with the societies and economies within which they live. People living in the tropical forest regions, however remained relatively isolated until the 1950s and are…. [read more]


English Comp How Pornography Promotes Term Paper

… Morally objectionable content is not peculiar to pornography; it can also be found in non-pornographic books, films, advertisements, and so on. The question is whether morally objectionable content is necessary to pornography." (Copp et al.) So can an argument be made that pornography does not increase sexual violence against women? Most who feel that there is a direct link think this is preposterous. "The analysis of the estimates of the usage of sexual practices revealed that massively exposed (male) subjects grossly overestimated the popularity of sadomasochistic activities. Moreover, massively exposed men were more approving and supportive of pornography than were others. Such findings can be taken as suggesting that, along with all other elements of pornography, the exhibition of sexual-aggressive behaviors becomes more acceptable with…. [read more]


Analyzing Gender Wage Gap Research Paper

… ¶ … Gender Wage Gap and the dynamics around it at the work place. It is an attempt to cross-examine the issue from both work and societal standpoints.

The gender wage gap is interwoven with several factors within the U.S. There are factors that are specific to gender such as qualification, overall wage structure, discrimination, rewards for services and skills and employment in the various sectors. The closing gap between gender wage differentials in the United States compared to other places can be attributed to factors associated with gender (Blau and Kahn, 2000). That notwithstanding, the relatively large gender wage gap in the U.S. compared to the situation in other countries is attributed to high inequality in wages. This paper seeks to demonstrate how gender…. [read more]

Knowledge Management in Accenture Thesis

… Accenture Knowledge Management

Knowledge Management at Accenture

To the extent that Accenture excels at knowledge management is the extent to which it this globally-based consultancy can attain its long-term revenue and profit objectives. Critical to Accenture's day-to-day fulfillment of clients' projects is the need for managing knowledge as a strategic asset (Paik, Choi, 2005), creating taxonomies that are process-based rather than reflecting the tight, often insular silos that typically the Accenture culture during the time period of the case study (Terjessen, 2003). Accenture has many impediments to being able to use knowledge management as a competitive asset, with the most significant being a lack of shared ownership of the data within the organization and a resulting proliferation of portals, some more fully populated with data….

… Placier, M.; Walker, M.; Foster, B.; (2002) Writing the 'show-me' standards: Teacher professionalism and political control in the U.S. state curriculum policy, Curriculum Inquiry, Vol. 32, Issue 3, pp. 281 -- 310

This is an interesting article in that it examined the process used to write Missouri's assessment of student writing capabilities. The study determined that even though a teacher's group was assigned to write the initial standard's report, that politics (as usual) got their grubby fingers involved and the result was a watered-down version of what could have been. The proposed study will necessarily have to compare what and how California requires from its students as compared to what other states require. Therefore, understanding how those other states initiated assessments will allow the researcher…. [read more]

Raymond Chandler (1888 -- 1959)

(Columbia World, 1996).

Methodology's Primary Purpose

The research methodology constitutes a paradigm or theory that relates how the researcher approaches his/her study, as well as how he/she undertakes the research effort. In the study, "Using the 'power of the data' within indigenous research practice," Maggie Walter (2005), a lecturer in sociology at the University of Tasmania, explains that methodology, albeit, differs from method. Method compliments the methodology as it consists of the techniques; the means and procedures the researcher utilizes. As methodology traditionally recounts the specific course of action the researcher utilizes to complete the research project, its primary purpose purports to denote how the research materialized, as well as what the….

The island of Cyprus is located at a very important geo-strategic position in the Mediterranean region. It is situated in the northeastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea and is the third largest island in that area (approximately 3,572 square miles) subsequent to Sicily and Sardinia. "Cyprus is an island located in the northeastern corner of the Mediterranean Sea 40 miles, south of Turkey, 60 miles west of Syria and Lebanon, 240 miles north of Egypt, and about 500 miles from the Greek mainland.

The total population of the island at the end of 1971 was estimated to be 640,000, of which 78% were Greek Cypriots and…. [read more]


Creating Opportunities for Sustainable Marketing Research Paper

… For instance, Von Glinow and Mohrman emphasize that, "The paradoxical implication for marketers is that, although they have to know more about technologies and applications, the useful life of their knowledge and experience is growing shorter, making it extremely difficult to develop a sustainable marketing advantage over competitors" (1999, p. 124). Given the accelerating pace of information availability, identifying opportunities for creating a competitive advantage using sustainable marketing methods represents a timely and valuable enterprise.

Research question

This study was guided by the following research question: "How can sustainable marketing be used to create a competitive advantage?"

Research methodology

This study used a mixed methodology consisting of a literature review (Neuman 2003) that examines the tenets of sustainable marketing to identify opportunities for creating competitive…. [read more]


George W. Bush Presidency Research Proposal

… Bush Christian

The Bush Administration's Politicization of Christianity

State and Church are, by constitutional law, intended to remain separate. And yet, where America's electoral patterns are concerned, it is quite clear that voters tend to respond in one way or another to the presence and invocation of religion or issues related to religious value systems. So would this be proven in 2004, when President George W. Bush sought and gained reelection against challenger and Massachusetts Senator John Kerry by focusing primarily on the religious value system which he claimed to share with many of his supporters. To the point, the Bush Administration would, more than most every late 20th century president before him, place a great and continuing emphasis on his Christianity as a defining…. [read more]


Corporal Punishment Term Paper

… ¶ … corporal punishment as it is used in classroom management. It is a concern that has plagued educators for some time because there are many different beliefs about it and there are many different suggestions about how it should be undertaken, or whether it should be undertaken at all. In this thesis, the issue will be thoroughly discussed and analyzed in order to better understand why it is so important for the future of the student population in this country - and for the educators as well.

The first section, the Introduction, examines the statement of the problem and the background of the study. Without sufficient backgrounding, there will be difficulties in understanding why the study is so important and what the real concern…. [read more]


Sociocognitive Metaphors Constraints Essay

… Sociocognitive Metaphors

Constraints on Sociocognitive Metaphors

What prompts people to describe aspects of their interpersonal relationships with terms such as "warm" and "close" and others as "cold" and "distant"? Why are individuals inclined to place "more powerful others higher and less powerful others lower in hierarchical structures?" (IJzerman & Koole, 2011). What is meant when individuals engage in a "heavy" discussion? And why do individuals refer to behavior determined to be morally reprehensible as "dirty"? Are these just figures of speech or is there a greater psychological significance to the connectivity between perceptual dimensions, such as temperature, weight, cleanliness, verticality, and abstract constructs?

Inquiries regarding the grounding of social cognition in sensorimotor systems have become the focus of increased theoretical and empirical efforts over the…. [read more]


Factors Predicting Marital Success or Failure Research Paper

… ¶ … Predicting Marital Success or Failure

Marriage and marital success is an issue that has dominated debate in the counseling and research field for quite a long period of time. For a while now, researchers and counselors have sought answers to questions that seek to establish the reason why some marriages are successful while others are not. In that regard, it can be noted that there are many factors that impact on the success or failure of relationships and marriages. In this text, I highlight some of the factors that are deemed to be predictors of marital success or failure.

Hillary Clinton and Leadership Term Paper

… By making the remark, she further alienated herself from many women.

Already, many people saw her as a person outside the First Lady mold. Many reacted to her as people did in Arkansas, though now, the reaction was on a national scale.

Though Clinton's refusal to confirm to a traditional, socially defined role as First Lady is, in fact, a sign of intelligence, integrity and determination, it was also in strong conflict with what many in the public then expected. The fact that she tried to make concessions -- including changing her name from Rodham to Clinton -- shows willingness to compromise. Unfortunately, she once again slipped in later interviews, remarking that she should have "stayed home and baked cookies" further served to remind many…. [read more]


NYPD Stop-and-Frisk Policy Alternatives Research Paper

Criteria for Choosing the Policy Alternative


Social Effects

The social effects look at how the policy would impact the community and its unity. Community is based on respect, appreciation for diversity, and sense of purpose. If a community is robbed of its identity because of a perception of oppression on the part of the police, the community can become antagonistic. From a Christian worldview perspective, peace is preferred state, and this is true in other religions as well, such as Islam. The greeting of peace in Islam is also a staple of the religion and helps to express the culture of peace that the religion seeks to groom. This is really no different from the culture of peace that can be found in Christianity…. [read more]


concise Analysis of Alexander the Great Research Paper

… They were proud of themselves and could not submit to Alexander's ideas. To this day, people who live in that area are still proud; no wonder that the national authority is finding it difficult to maintain national authority in that part of the world.

Alexander the Great opted to relocate his troops to the northern part of the mountain as they were directed by the locals. His attempt to move the catapults in strategic places was hindered by the steep ravine. To fill the gap, an earthen was constructed so as to allow easy movement of the machines within the area. This was countered by the defenders who instead rolled large stones down the mountain so as to slow down the construction work that was…. [read more]


Role of Land Settlement Cooperative in the Kingdom of Thailand and Its Business Performance Term Paper

… Role of Land Settlement Cooperative in the Kingdom of Thailand and Its Business Performance

Prior to the Cooperative Crisis

Agriculture is a mark of civilization for the mankind.

It is beyond economy.

It is a part of our society, and a part of our culture." (Kittiampon)

Interview: Thailand...," 2000)

Cooperative Contentions

This researcher contends that in Thailand, an agricultural cooperative's business duties, when dealing with farmers may be divided into two primary scopes:

The first "scope" consists of the original idea founding the agricultural cooperative, focusing on money, in the realms of either savings or loans.

Another "scope," marketing needs to cover the dual aspects of marketing agricultural products, such as providing pertinent agricultural input to members and gathering members' products to resell.

The primary…. [read more]


Legacy Board Members and District Literature Review

… ¶ … Legacy Board Members and District Culture

From a theoretical and scientific perspective, there are compelling reasons for appreciating the role of organizational culture in shaping organizational processes and leadership. Since science seeks to develop universally valuable theories, principles and laws, there is a growing demand for organizational and leadership theories transcending cultures. Theories encounter inherent limitations as leaders seek to apply them across cultures. One tends to work in one culture does not work in a different culture. While focusing on cross-cultural issues, this study will help researchers reveal the new association by incorporating a wider range of factors regularly not considered in contemporary theories like political systems. Therefore, a review of literature on cross-cultural studies has helped expound on theories of organizational…. [read more]
