Adoption Gay Term Paper

… Gay Adoption

Adoption is an important social and legal process whereby children without parents are placed in homes and given full status as members of a family. Adoption goes beyond the sort of temporary placement that is common in foster homes and is seen to serve the needs of the children, to benefit the adoptive parents, and to strengthen society. Adoption for many people stands as the only viable option they have to become parents because they cannot conceive on their own, and yet there are usually far more children in need of adoptive parents than there are parents. Some children are harder to place than others, usually because they are older, and adoptive parents prefer small children as a rule. Children who have certain…. [read more]

Reasons for Active Community Participation of Successful Companies

Interest Rate Risk Management Term Paper

… The management of interest rates is more than managing inflation -- through interest rate manipulation, the Federal Reserve controls outcomes such as mergers, bankruptcies, overcapacity, relocation abroad, state and federal subsidies, competition, taxes, and many other business needs and trends. When businesses need to borrow money, the Federal Reserve's actions are paramount to the overall process.

The risk associated with interest in both the public and the private sector is controlled by these banking institutions including the Federal Reserve Bank. Consider that there are both banks and non-banks that participate in the United States. Banks are made up of commercial banks, savings & loan associations, mutual savings banks, and credit unions. The majority of the lending and credit surprisingly is not handled by banks.

South Korea and the United States Term Paper

… South Korea and the United States

South Korea and North Korea, the two parts of the peninsular nation called Korea who shared identities for more than 5,000 years, have still not recovered completely from the fight for the division of the borders between them, fifty years after the War that took place called the 'Korean War' that started in June 1950. However, it has been noticed, in recent months, that the tensions between the two sides are in fact subsiding to a certain extent, and a series of historic incidents point towards this fact.

Italy Is a Cultural Hub Term Paper

… As society becomes more secular in nature however, one would assume that the traditional religious associations with masculinity and femininity would fall away, leaving room for growth and expansion. This has not necessarily however, been the case in Italy and its European counterparts, where religion perhaps still has more of an influence on society.

Interestingly, concupiscence was often coded as feminine. Lansing cited previous studies on the Bible that explained original sin in terms of the psychological difference between men and women: "Adam because of his rational nature would not have listened to the serpent alone. It was Eve who was moved by concupiscence and acted as intermediary" (Lansing, 1997). This idea points to the notion that that feminism in Italy is associated with the…. [read more]

Private and Legal Issues Term Paper

… Beyond that some information brokers provide their databases for a fee on Internet websites. Therefore, legal and privacy issues have become so common that more employers are conducting background checks on their employees without their permission.

It might be considered useful that the public can access government records easily via the Internet. But these open records can create havoc from the hands…. [read more]

Corporate Governance Term Paper

… Time Warner had gotten big slowly, and by trading on things people had known and loved since the beginning of time, news and entertainment.

AOL, on the other hand, had gotten big when those who built Time Warner were dead or dying, and when the upper echelons in management were too old to have had computers when they were in college. Literally, Steve Case was almost that old, but had managed to keep his boyish outlook and adopt the new technology like a Gen Xer. His company was divorced from the necessity of building on past successes; its motto became, by 1996, Get Big Fast.

No one, apparently, mentioned that big is not always better. Executives roamed the halls talking on cell phones at AOL…. [read more]

Africa's Political Crisis Most African Term Paper

… Africa is in need of improved political leadership, but not a stronger or bigger state. For Africa to succeed in its post-independent state, it needs leaders who can rise above their ethnic origins and who will create a sense of fair play and rules that apply to all ethnic and socioeconomic groups. Democratic processes would accommodate the development of this sense of fairness.

The government has a key role to play in building a stable, democratic nation, as does the international community. The government must invest in education and health to populate the civil society with independent and activist citizens. It must also create a safe and impartial judicial system to protect private property and contracts, as well as develop effective rules for private competition…. [read more]
