AIDS on South African Development Research Paper

… Mobility per se can encourage or make people vulnerable to high-risk sexual behaviour;

2. Mobility makes people more difficult to reach, whether for prevention education, condom provision, HIV testing, or post-infection treatment and care;

3. Migrants' multi-local social networks create opportunities for sexual networking; and,

4. There is a higher rate of HIV infection in "communities of the mobile," which often include socially, economically and politically marginalized people (Boe and Crush 22).

Taken together, it is clear that the high degree of mobility of South African mining workers combined with a modern transportation infrastructure combine to create a number of obstacles to combating the spread of this disease. Indeed, Boe and Crush emphasize that, "The current geography of the HIV epidemic is also the clue…. [read more]

Bias Motivation Capstone Project

… Bias

Motivation is a vital part of any company's work. Without motivation, performance will necessarily suffer. A high level of motivation provides individuals and companies with the energy to not only perform their required tasks well, but also to perform beyond the call of duty. In this way, outputs become truly excellent rather than merely adequate. The same is particularly true for the university environment, where highly motivated personnel will affect the excellence of outputs directly. There are a number of variables that interact to affect motivation and outputs. These can be applied to Strayer University to determine the level of their outputs and the motivation that underscores these.

The first variable is structure. Strayer University consists of various components. Top management is made up…. [read more]


French Renaissance Essay

… Architecture of the French Renaissance

The Renaissance would be a convergence of social, economic and artistic forces in the middle centuries of the last millennium. A period of time which can be characterized by a refinement and mainstreaming of the classical artistic impulses which preceded it, the Renaissance is said to have largely initiated in parts of Italy such as Florence and Venice. Indeed, it would be in such contexts that many of the greatest works of modern European art would forged. During the time of the Italian renaissance, a torrent of artistic inspiration resulted in countless groundbreaking pieces of iconic imagery which would break the mold both technically and creatively. Particularly in terms of compositional depth, artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo…. [read more]


Comparison of the Sarcophagi Research Paper

… However, there is a strong and pronounced sense of celebration and triumph, as this truly magnificent burial item is decorated with battle scenes among soldiers and Amazons (warrior women of the ancient world). "The standing figures are soldiers, wearing helmets, short tunics, and plates of body armor. The soldiers are armed with swords and protect themselves with round shields. The Amazons ride horses; their fallen sisters lay dead on the ground" (mfah.org). There is a pervasive sense of movement and progress. The sarcophagus definitively depicts a scene which is indeed mid-battle and which points to an outcome which is indeed imminent: this outcome is one which will no doubt be triumphant and this is the send off that the vanquished military leader will be given….

Health of a Community Essay

… Free and unbiased health insurance counseling is provided at many occasions through a dedicated team of volunteers (Lundy & Janes, 2009).

Ethnicity, race and immigration status are also influencing attributes that creates an unconstructive impact on to the members of the community on a broad spectrum. Historical facts and figures elucidate the piece of information that Gainesville has been dominated by the majority racial communities, thus it is imperative to note that racial and ethnic discrimination has been present within the city and its dwellers. Furthermore, the discrimination existed for the people with reference to their ethnicity, race and immigration status when the access to health care was concerned (Lundy & Janes, 2009).

Finally, exploring the socio-demographic factors that take account of income, educational level…. [read more]


Substance Abuse Treatment Analysis Essay

… The symptom of preoccupation is marked by an individual's tendency to spend a considerable amount of time thinking about, consuming, and recovering from the effects of the substance(s) of abuse.

Linguistics Ebonics Term Paper

… Ebonics may borrow or take on words from Standard American English, but there are grammatical dissimilarities. In fact, there is substantiation suggesting that African-American speech has roots similar to that of Niger-Congo Africans. Ebonics shares African morphology and lacks certain phonemes. These phonemes play an important role in the syntax and comprehension of Standard American English. However since Ebonics lacks them, it affects the connotation and grammatical structure of Ebonics. Even though many will carry on to question the spirit of Ebonics, there is sufficient evidence supporting the notion that it is without a doubt a separate language (Obasaju, Stewart, Jackson & Timberlake, n.d.).

Traditional testing of cognitive ability, written and oral language, and reading skills have been reported as not giving exact results for…. [read more]


Criminal Justice/Forensics Undercover Thesis

… Criminal Justice/Forensics

Undercover" is a term that has made its way into the public vernacular, thanks in large part to movies and television programs. Undercover, at its fundamental level, means pretending to be someone else- the construction and portrayal of a false identity for an ulterior purpose. In the case of undercover police investigations, this ulterior purpose is to enforce the law. This is done by using a false identity to infiltrate a criminal group in order to gather evidence and build a case. This can be a long-term project- some cases have had an undercover operative on assignments that lasted for years. The purpose of this research paper is to show that undercover police officers are more likely to commit criminal acts than police…. [read more]


Early 20th Century Photograph Essay

… The author expresses the notion that photographers have a responsibility to portray things as they actually are, not as they appear to the subject taking them. Thus, he was a staunch supporter of objectivism. However, what is interesting about this viewpoint is that it actually demonstrates a concern for the medium of photography in general. The author sees it as a way of correcting the problems that people might have viewing things. Those problems pertain to their particular vantage point, their angle for a specific object, etcetera. In this regard there is a definite social function or social purpose that is important to the author.
The main concern of Alexander Rodchenko was innovation as it took place in photography. His article evinces a desire to…. [read more]


Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)



One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]


Sound Technologies and Sound Design Thesis

… The synchronization of sound films was experimented during 1912 to 1914. These developments underlined the importance of technology and innovation in coming years of film industry. The history of film music also does not provide a coherent record of its developments as Lumiere brothers are also reported as introducing their film with music in 1895. However the confirmation of such records is a trivial task due to unclear documentation.

Phonographic sound and films were among the early films with music. It is also stated that a number of cinemas in Europe were dedicated for phonographic sounds. The introduction of phonographic and these cinemas throughout the world have influenced sound and music in films. It is reported that these cinemas showcased short films with operatic performances.….

Assembling Culture Assembling Southern Appalachian Term Paper

These beliefs bring comfort and promise a better life for most, but they also protect the believer in this world and the one to come.

The Christian adherents seek the wisdom written in their Bible which is divided into two major sections, the Old Testament and the New Testament, and 66 books scattered amongst the two (39 in the Old and 27 in the New). In the gospels of the New Testament is the book of Mark. From this book, the Christians in some Southern Appalachian churches have selected a verse that tells them to what extent they are….

Magiciens de la Terre

Musee du Quai Branly

Art has always had the ability to influence and shape many of the cultural ideas and norms that have been present throughout the history of humanity. However, at the same time, art is also influenced by the society and the environmental factors that have led the artists to develop their individual interpretations of issues related to life, reality, love, truth, and other such themes that is reflected in an artist's….

Historiography on Sallust the Concern Thesis

… Historiography on Sallust

The concern of all serious historians has been to collect and record facts about the human past and often to discover new facts"

Historiography Introduction section).

Instead of qualifying as an accurate account of what happened in the past, history may more accurately relate what the historian records about the known past; about the past as he/she knows it to be. "Historiography is the written record of what is known of human lives and societies in the past and how historians have attempted to understand them" (Historiography Introduction section). In line with this understanding, along with relating a synopsis of the historian Sallust, this paper also relates perceptions other historians recorded about this Roman historian.

Competitiveness of Sustenance Lithographic Printing Case Study

… Both were right. The reasons are not far to seek. The swing of the pendulum for one, lithographs had been almost too popular.

This overreliance on lithography to the exclusion of other alternative printing methods such as the introduction of photography almost spelled the end of lithography in Europe. For example, according to Beaujon (1936, p. 60), "French lithographers, warned to be serious like the Germans, began to copy pictures which they did, though with distinction, at the sacrifice of original design."

There was also a sacrifice of quality involved when these early photographic processes were used instead of lithography but the preference for the new technology was clear. As Beaujon (1936, p. 60) points out, "Photography became a serious rival in all countries, bringing…. [read more]


Virginia Woolf's View on Women Research Paper

… Virginia Woolf's View of Women in a Room of One's Own and its relevance today"

The issue of women in literature dates back to the earliest written word. Perspectives change over time and across cultures. Literature and the roles of women are no different. There are many challenges that have faced women throughout our existence, but perhaps more so in the last couple centuries. Virginia Woolf, the author of a Room of One's Own, felt that literature was "impoverished beyond our counting by the doors that have been shut upon women" (Woolf 59)*

That was the sentiment of many women just a century ago, but as the roles of women within societies have evolved so have the societies themselves -- perhaps in part to accommodate…. [read more]


Intended for a Quantitative Public Essay

… Many believe it is hard to use financial innovation in the places where its application is sought, the places where its application is desired or the places where its application is needed. Financial innovation has traditionally been part of education policy. The individuals who seek to practically implement a financial innovative policy find it too difficult within an educational structure. These types of individuals are actually quite a few and varied across different posts in institutions, which range from schools to teachers to the policy makers themselves. These individuals think it is hard to help make the necessary changes in reaction to financial innovation or investment. There's a general opinion that these financial innovations lead to failure more regularly than they do to success. But…. [read more]


East/West an Analysis of Eastern Research Paper

… Chen goes on to lay out every single reference and cross-reference he can find in the film, linking the Guzheng assassins to The Six-Fingered Lord of the Lute; Landlady's "Lion's Roar" to Jin Yong's Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre; and Sing's swollen lips to "Tony Leung Chiu-Wai's famous 'sausage lips' look from The Eagle Shooting Heroes."

Interestingly, Chow's influence is often romantic, affectionate and spiritual. CJ7, for example, allows for a resurrection, the likes of which haven't been seen since Shakespeare's Winter's Tale. Shaolin Soccer showed what perseverance and spiritual affiliation could do. But it is Kung Fu Hustle, a collaboration between Eastern and Western producers in a sort of East-meets-West ultra-homage to both Hong Kong and American cinema (in a cross-pollination of ideals), that….

Adult Education Programs and Activities in the United States Toward a Balanced History Thesis

… Adult Education Programs and Activities in the United States: Toward a Balanced History

What 'should' be included in adult education histories?

The historical field continues to be looked at in a less favourable way as its purpose is not understood well, but also because historians often fail to present all elements and sides to a historical event. In this order of ideas, the adult education histories should contain vast references to all participants to an event, recollections from various sides, a wider coverage of the occurred events, and most importantly, all these must be presented in an unbiased manner. In other words, the adult educational histories should contain more than the "big trees."

How is the purpose behind writing a history related to ideas about…. [read more]


Privatization of Healthcare Services Dissertation

… With this reality check and overall change in approach permissions were granted to individuals for setting up and running private hospitals with government regulations. This revived the private sector and many public institutions were privatized over night. Both types of institutions private and public still co-exist in China but number of private hospitals and clinics remain far greater.

Earlier to 1980 there were four groups who were allowed to setup and run private practice; First group was individual practitioners with a license prior to the Cultural…. [read more]


French New Wave and Its Influence on Modern Film Directors Term Paper

… French New Wave and Modern American Cinema

Just as France had been the site for extensive evolution in the medium in the earliest part of the twentieth century, it was also an ignition point for the New Wave of film craftsmanship which began in the late 1950's. This movement was predisposed to an intermingling of neo-realistic proclivities with a seemingly antithetical suspension of conventions within the world of film in order to propose the notion that film was of unparalleled importance in the formulation of reality. This ambition underscores the comment by French New Wave director Francois Truffaut, who reportedly commented once, "I still ask myself the question that has tormented me since I was thirty years old: Is cinema more important than life?" (Douchet…. [read more]

Compare and Contrast of Democracy From the Viewpoints of Pericles Plato and Aristotle Term Paper

… Democracy

The classical features of Greek democratic tradition was an emphasis on disbursing political power among all citizens, and the participation of all citizens was seen as essential both to the well-being of the state and the citizen himself. This tradition is embodied in aspects of the political philosophies of Plato and Aristotle, as will be indicated in an exploration of certain of the themes that recur in Greek political philosophy, such as the question of justice and the nature and meaning of citizenship. Democracy was more immediate and direct in the Greek context, with the relatively smaller population better able to meet to debate and decide issues and so to have a clearer tie to the democratic process. As Lakoff (1996) writes,

The Athenians,…. [read more]

… Frederick the Great Book Review

Luvaas, Jay (Editor). Frederick the Great on the Art of War. New York; Da Capo Press:

First Da Capo Press Edition, 1999.

Germany is such a powerful nation-state today, and played such a decisive role in shaping the map of Europe during the 20th century, it is easy to forget that it is a land with a fairly recent birth date. Germany was forged, over the course of the late 18th and early 19th century, as the result of the mighty nature of the Prussian military regime. At the helm of these forces during the conception of Prussia, the region that was to give birth to the men who created the core, military backbone of modern German regime, the Prussian….

Humanities and Other Modes Essay

… • List a current example of each type of the following humanities and explain why each example you give reflects current developments in politics, socioeconomics, and technology:

Art is a result of a human expression that maybe created by the mind and the social setting in which the mind explores its emotions. Thus artistic expressions are the key to the human emotions. Thus the study of human behavior and humanity as a whole can begin with artistic expressions and the modern art-based research -- ABR has now become a part of the general social science research.

K-12 Curriculum and Instruction: Changing Research Proposal

… From what? Boring stuff." (2011)

Robinson states that the instance of ADHD "has risen in parallel with the growth of standardized testing. And these kids are being given Ritalin and Adderall and all manner of things. Often quite dangerous drugs to get them focused and calm them down. But according to this attention deficit disorder increases as you travel east across the country. People start losing interest in Oklahoma. They can hardly think straight in Arkansas. And by the time they get to Washington they've lost it completely."

Machine Translation and Horizons Seminar Paper

… Also, newspapers are relatively standard, simply-written documents that are not analogous to complex legal and business documents, and they lack the subtleties and complexities of literature.

The opponents of these enthusiastic supporters of machine translation contend that all forms of machine translation are inherently useless and produce nothing but humorous nonsense. "As they expect nearly perfect speech, they will find themselves largely disappointed."[footnoteRef:2] It is very easy to find examples of humorous mistranslations that leave the reader scratching his or her head at best, or, at worst leave the reader dangerously misled. But this dismissive view belies the fact that there is a serious need for effective machine translation, and real and sustained efforts are being made to ensure that the process can become a….
