Role as a Nurse/Life Helper Term Paper

… All things are connected.

With that basis, a look at some of the approaches one might take to proving nursing as a world-changing, life-enhancing profession are in order. This is particularly true regarding long-term care. Why? Because with nursing in a hospital or clinic setting, there is the expectation that the patients will recover and leave to go home, or not recover and die, or possibly recover only enough to enter a long-term care facility.

While there are recoveries in long-term care facilities, it is much more likely that a patient who enters such a facility will, as the metaphysicians say, make his or her transition. Because of this, caring for this population is frightful for many, but yet it is essential. Because of the…. [read more]

Latin American Politics United States Term Paper

… The corporatist system is one that can be beneficial to commercial farmers, while detrimental to rural farmers. Commercial farmers can remain in control of agriculture under this system, monopolizing the industry.

Over the years, many changes have occurred recently concerning the numbers and types of interest groups. Now interest groups are not just the army, the church, and the oligarchy, but also the middle class, workers, peasants, women, indigenous groups, university students, government entities, and international groups.

Even with these new interest groups, pluralism in Latin America is still a limited pluralism as the majority of the new groups are unorganized and inarticulate, and the political bias still leans toward the privileged rather than the mass. Because of its corporatist roots, Latin America mainly consists…. [read more]

Willa Cather's O Pioneers and the Frontier Female Roles Term Paper

… ¶ … woman who has the qualities and merits that enable her to break the fence of gender roles in her society. This woman is a character from a novel, but she exemplifies all the groundbreaking steps that women took in the late nineteenth century, in order to pave the way for suffrage and women's equality. It is important to study the framework of women during this time in American history, because it helps to illuminate the patterns that constructed the first real human rights movement for gender equality, which had express, expedient, and unequivocal political goals. Furthermore, this analysis reveals the specific ways that historical context and social milieu converge, as the character under analysis was a lone female pioneer in the American West.…. [read more]

Politics of Gender and Sexuality in Aristophanes Lysistrata Term Paper

… Gender and Sexuality

New Criticism: Gender and Sexuality in Aristophanes' Lysistrata

Aristophanes' Lysistrata is one of the eleven plays penned by the playwright that has survived over time. The original performance of this production occurred in classical Athens reportedly in 411 BC

Lysistrata is considered a comedy; an account of one woman's unique goal and desire to end the Peloponnesian War. During the course of the play, Lysistrata is able to persuade the women of Greece to withhold any form of sexual satisfaction from their lovers and husbands as a tool designed to force the men to negotiate peace

This suggested strategy, however, incites the battle between the men and women. Because of the use of sex, issues raised with regard to gender, and addressing…. [read more]

Jane Austen's Emma Term Paper

… Furthermore, Austen believed that the domestic sphere was important, not merely secondary to the public sphere. For Austen, a knowledge of manners and raising polite, well-mannered children were crucial in a society were not women's occupations merely because they suited feminine sensibilities. Rather, manners were an integral part of society, a task Austen thus assigned to the hands of her capable heroines.

The English Gentleman Ideal

Emma is a novel concerned with gender re-definition. First, the character of Emma Woodhouse herself employs many traditionally "masculine" traits. Unlike the Bennetts and the Dashwoods before her, Emma is not bound by the law of primogeniture and will therefore not be stripped of her property when her father dies. Though Emma may seem like a weak character compared…. [read more]

Role of Intelligence Agencies Essay

… Although MI5 were vaguely aware of the presence of another 'great illegal', Arnold Deutsch, in Britain during the 1930s, there was no conception of the sophistication of his recruitment propaganda, or the tradecraft on which his agents were trained" (Thurlow, 2004, p.611)

One of the means through which the identification of students and in general foreign nations in the UK during this period was an increased control over the identity cards and the activities undergone by such individuals. Students and workers in particular were most vulnerable to propaganda. This is largely due to the fact that while students lacked the experience of the previous war, the beliefs and concepts promoted by Socialists had notions that would appeal to the younger generations. At the same time,…. [read more]

21st Century American 'Democracy Term Paper

… What made these early Americans so different from 21st century ones was (1) the relatively tiny size and homogeneity of their group, and (2) their commitment to a single common cause (Tocqueville). Further, John Winthrop's "A Model of Christian Charity" (1630), originally delivered as a sermon onboard the Arbella bound for the New World, suggests how "every man might have need of the other, and from hence they might all be knit more nearly together in the bonds of brotherly affection" (p. 215). However, as America has expanded over time and space, individual citizens have become more distant from and indifferent toward one another; more spread out geographically, and perhaps too autonomous, to the point of near total self-interest.

Moreover, all of that was accurately…. [read more]

Bilateral and Multilateral Diplomacy Normally Term Paper

… (Multilateral Diplomacy offers way to pursue national interest while making common cause with others, Secretary General says)

Multilateral diplomacy is viewed as a mode of articulation and pursuance of one's national interest while entailing common cause with others. He reiterated the problems of addressing more general issues like pollution, the drug trade or terrorism etc. never regard the national sovereignty or national boundaries. He revealed, diplomacy however, has had its shameful moments in the past and it has its defective practitioners.

Fascism Is a Totalitarian Philosophy of Governments Essay

… Fascism is a totalitarian philosophy of governments which glorifies a state and nation and assigns control over every aspect of national life to the state. Fascism takes the form of radical authoritarian nationalism; fascists often seek the unification of a nation through a sate that is totalitarian and seeks mass mobilization of the national community through discipline, indoctrination as well as physical training. Fascism takes the view of direct action that includes political violence as well as wars as a means of achieving a nation's rejuvenation, spirit and vitality. Fascism therefore recognizes that class conflicts occur and goes ahead to advocate a resolution that will see an end of class divisions within a nation and hence secure solidarity within a nation. Fascism is therefore characterized…. [read more]

Subversion: The Role of Politics Term Paper

… 71). The youth of Thalburg were so enamored with the Nazis that they were "painting swastikas and slogans on sidewalks and walls and distributing leaflets and pamphlets, (p. 72). Thus the perpetuation of Nazi propaganda was complete. They had successfully embedded Nazism into the German, and therefore Thalburg, psyche. The Nazis were also learning the power of the scapegoat. Uniting in a common cause against socialism, and later against the Jews, the Nazis garnered even an even more fervent following.

But it was clear that the Nazis were gaining votes due to the inadequacies of the other political parties that could not provide an attractive alternative. "Most Thalburgers had little idea what the Nazis would really do after they achieved power. Even the Jews had…. [read more]

Future of Cuba Term Paper

… Cuba After Castro

Cuba is an island nation some 90 miles from Florida, and proximity alone gives this country great importance in the thinking of American leaders. More than this, however, Cuba represents a major loss in the Western Hemisphere, a country that is Communist-led and that has therefore been viewed as a major security threat to the United States. At times, that threat has been given even more weight, as it was during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. At other times, the threat has been less specific and often derives largely from antipathy to the leadership and to the very idea of Communism. In addition, Cuba holds a place of importance because of the many exiles from Cuba who have come to the…. [read more]

Price Beauty? Term Paper

… These ideas provide an excellent overview of that Age's understanding of the subject. In the second edition of his Enquiry (1759),

Burke addressed the idea of Beauty, by which he meant "that quality or those qualities in bodies by which they cause love, or some passion similar to it." Burke's goal of identifying the physiological relationship between external objects and their emotional apprehension is most apparent in Part Four [of the Enquiry], where he hoped to "discover what affections of the mind produce certain emotions of the body; and what distinct feelings and qualities of body shall produce certain determinate passions in the mind."

Physical beauty, therefore, was seen as inspiring an emotional response; specifically a feeling of love and affection on the part of…. [read more]

Critical Thinking on Included Editorial Term Paper

… Buchanan Op-Ed

An Analysis of Buchanan's Op-Ed

The neo-conservative agenda has never been more apparent than it is today, and Pat Buchanan's op-ed from 23 August 2011 plainly exposes it in no uncertain terms. Buchanan quotes Lindsey Graham, the Senator from South Carolina who recently likened America to a "battlefield" in his support of the National Defense Authorization Act (Anders), as saying that "Russia's invasion of Georgian land in 2008 was an act of aggression, not only to Georgia but to all new democracies" (Buchanan). Graham's statement is a blatant misrepresentation of the facts. Like Buchanan, we of the Libertarian Lobby must conclude that Graham's assessment is pure "neocon propaganda" (Buchanan). This paper will show exactly why and how the neocons are dominating our Senate…. [read more]

Gender in the 19Th Century Novel Essay

… Similarly too Emily Bronte's Heathcliff "forgets" or is made to forget who and what he was; Mary Shelley's monster is "born" without either a memory or a family history…what all these characters and their authors really fear they have forgotten is precisely that aspect of their lives which has been kept from them by patriarchal poetics: their matrilineal heritage of literary strength, their "female power" which…is important to them because of (not in spite of) their mothers. (Gilbert and Gubar 59)

Gilbert and Gubar are certainly right here, that to a certain extent what is central in a feminist conception of the "matrilineal heritage" of literary genealogies is the prospect of identifying with one's precursor. (It might be worth noting that Mary Shelley conducted her…. [read more]

Fashion and Identity Fashion, Culture, and Personal Essay

… Fashion and Identity

Fashion, Culture, and Personal Identity

Culture is a complex phenomenon. Any gathering of human beings develops its own culture given enough time; this can be observed on both macro and micro levels. In the study of history and art, scholars speak of Roman culture or Western culture as a way of referring to the broad and generalized values -- both moralistic and aesthetic -- that typify a given society in a certain period of history. On a smaller level, different localities have their own cultures that can be markedly different reflections of the dominant super-culture present in society at large -- the cultures of both San Diego, California and Bangor, Maine will in some ways reflect the larger United States and Western….

Fashion and Appearance Central to the Construction Essay


The objective of this work is to answer the question of how is fashion and appearance central to the construction of social identities and to present a discussion that includes reference to specific examples.

The literature examined in this study clearly indicates that fashion and appearance are central to the construction of social identities. For example, the work of Christopher Breward (1999) entitled; "The Hidden Consumer: Masculinities, Fashion and City Life in 1860-1914" states that the study of "...masculinities, fashion and urban culture is rarely addressed in the same work since the dominant wisdom has long held that consumption was a feminine enterprise and that pre-War British and American men were reluctant consumers….

Suturing in Film Theory Term Paper

… The text's agenda throughout the film remains uncertain. The oblique, disturbing and often apparently unrelated images that pass before the camera's and the viewers gaze serves to reinforce notions that there is no 'master' narrative. Always there is a sense that the film's images have been compiled and constructed, and that the gazer is not always privy to the internal subjectivity of the man being observed by the camera.

Suturing is thus not an inevitable narrative process of film, although the visual nature of the filmed medium as it has evolved within our own cultural context makes it a difficult process to subvert. Furthermore, one might ask if its continual subversion does not become a cliche and an act of subverting suturing itself does not…. [read more]

Global Refugee Regime Term Paper

… There are those who manage to get away from their native lands but do not attempt to cross their national borders and such people are termed "internal refugees." The UNHCR tries to cope with such refugees too, for instance, those who had to leave, due to the tension in 1992, from Transdniesteria. The UNHCR indulges in other activities too. Besides providing a secure place and help to such people it joins hands with the many aid agencies and non-governmental organizations to bring to the attention of the world the hindrances and problems faced by internal and international refugees.

The UNHCR supports and helps millions of refugees. The number of refugees keeps increasing by the day and the various crises have done nothing but to add…. [read more]

Sociology and Feminist Theories Term Paper

… Of particular interest to the casual observer are the differences in relational dynamics and social interaction and perception between African-Americans and white Americans. African-American societies are by far one of the most dominant societies in the U.S., and have also been subject to different stereotypes and stigmas that have been existing for many years.

In fact, racial and gender differences are the most common forms of stratification that society tends to look in an individual. In the case of the American experience, African-American males are perceived differently by society as compared to white American males and females, as well as African-American females. In Myra and David Sadker's article entitled, "The Miseducation of Boys: Changing the Script," the authors discuss the significance of race and gender…. [read more]

… [endnoteRef:4] A loosely connected but historically viable group of local tribes throughout Central Asia also precludes the potential for centralized institutions that could have usurped the power of warlords. The illicit economy holds together loose federations, which perceive outside interventions on the part of even the most well-meaning of international actors who operate under the presumptions of democratic peace theory.

English Sexism and Misogyny Term Paper

… ¶ … Love Got to Do With it?

I'd like to start this essay out by saying that I agree with Bell Hook's critical examination of the Piano. I agree that misogyny and sexism are the central themes in the movie, although I have to say that the movie relies on these ideas to keep it alive and of interest to women because it's the very most thing they are familiar with. The movie has received rave reviews because of its sexuality and expression, although I do not think the average person sees the misogyny present. I believe this is because it has become so mainstream and accepted that it's hardly recognizable anymore. The following paragraphs will detail the film's themes and the advantages and…. [read more]

Victorian Lit Labor Issues the Key Concern A2 Outline Answer

… Victorian Lit

Labor Issues

The key concern is with the ethics, rights, and politics of labor and especially with working conditions in factories.

Dawn of Industrial Age

Modernized capitalist system, division of labor

"The Song of the Shirt," Thomas Hood: comments on textile mills and especially on their effect on the women that work in them. From the very first verse, Hood makes known his political stance. "In poverty, hunger, and dirt, / And still with a voice of dolorous pitch / She sang the 'Song of the Shirt.'" There is a clear literalism in Hood's approach to discussing labor issues, and how they impact the poor and disenfranchised.

Although less literal, in its approach, Tennyson's "Lady of Shalott" likewise critiques the gendered labor of…. [read more]

Depictions of Guinevere in Medieval Texts: From Silent Companion to Active Adultery in the Span of a Century

The Arthurian legends have been a subject of intense fascination and inspection by readers and scholars alike since they first appeared towards the end of the eighth century or perhaps the beginning of the ninth century BCE (Bruce, 319). Appearing to refer to events of the sixth century BCE, and without any clarity as to the actual existence of the hero or his true connection to the literary character introduced in the horribly inaccurate historical writings of the Welsh monk Nennius, it cannot be said with certainty whether Arthur -- if existed -- was truly a king or more of a general, though it appears certain….

World Civilization from 1500 AD to Present

Worldwide trade from 1500 to 1800 AD: the Rise and Implications

Europe was expanding its boundaries at the end of the medieval world: Spain and Portugal had navigated the globe. The Crusades had opened roads to the East, and the sea lanes had given way to a new world in which nations sought God, gold, and glory. The world has always become smaller with the advent of new technology -- and the new technology in 1500 was navigational and nautical; by 1800 that technology had become increasingly more "scientific" and even militaristic. America had been colonized and the trade routes from East to West to East and back again were flourishing.

Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison and Abolition

The economic, social and ideological underpinnings of the American southland during the nation's formative decades were provided by the myriad assumptions which enabled the 'peculiar institution' of slavery. A functionality and permissiveness to the system that predisposed the nation's transplanted African population to servitude and obsequiousness was based not simply on the brutal enforcement of labor and inferiority, but even more fundamentally on the fostering of a sophisticated psychological conditioning centered on a drastic deviation from natural conceptions of that which defines a man and his inherent humanity. To create a reality in which the ownership of one many by another many could serve to promote a relative harmony for white dominance, it was incumbent upon…. [read more]

Nationalism vs. Globalization in Taiwan Term Paper

Once an ostracized island confederation, Taiwan has embraced the power of globalization and allowed itself to become of the growing number of success stories of the East Asian economic region. The question of how globalization emerged within our modern world and specifically within East Asia is a complicated one. It was the result of economic, political, social and cultural circumstances that were all perfectly in tune over the last quarter of a century. The Western conquest of the Asian region through Japan, Korea, Vietnam and other East Asian countries resulted in an influx of foreign capital…. [read more]

American President Research Paper

… ¶ … history of this country, efforts have been made to expand the power of the presidency, both intentional and unintentional. In 1798, for example, Congress enacted, and President John Adams signed, a series of laws that, together, became known as the Alien and Sedition Acts. Among other things, these acts gave the president the power to deport alien individuals during peacetime and, in an affront to the First Amendment, define treason, including in certain writings. Later, President Lincoln seized on fear generated by the U.S. Civil War to three times suspend the writ of habeas corpus. Twentieth Century presidents have been even more willing to expand their power. Presidents Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Nixon, and Reagan all took steps to broaden the role of the…. [read more]

Colbert Report and a Theory Term Paper

… ¶ … Colbert Report has been on the air a little less than two years. The program was an immediate hit, following the Daily Show on Comedy Central and carrying the pretense of the Daily Show into a new realm. Together, the shows represent both a comment on the politics of the day and a satire on television itself, specifically on television news and television commentary. The shows are related, with Colbert himself having spent some time as a correspondent on the Daily Show before creating the Colbert Report, and the two shows at times work together to show different aspects of the news of the day and to comment on the news from what seem to be different political perspectives. Of the two, though,…. [read more]

Minor's "Understanding Faculty Senates: Moving From Mystery Thesis

… Minor's "Understanding Faculty Senates: Moving From Mystery to Models": A Critique

Presentation, Style, and Substance

In the article, "Understanding faculty senates: Moving from mystery to models," J.T Minor presents four models of faculty senates, addressing how they operate within a university's system of governance. The article is presented with the higher education community in mind. Thus, the author's intended audience is most likely the faculty and staff of universities, with an emphasis on the faculty and administration of such universities. Furthermore, the author's stated purpose is to provide some clarity within the topic of faculty senates' role in university governance. That is, the author argues that a great deal of work has been completed regarding faculty participation in governance and decision making, but that the…. [read more]

Austen, Eliot, Besant, Browning: 19Th Century Views of Marriage and Property Essay

… ¶ … Marriage in 19th c English lit

To a certain extent, England owes its national identity in the modern period to issues of marriage: it was over marriage policy that Henry VIII would break with Rome and establish his own church in the sixteenth century, and the Church of England's denial of sacramental status to marriage led to a large-scale literary attempt (whose results are evident in works as disparate as Spenser's "Epithalamion" to Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing") to find a cultural meaning for marriage when the religious meaning had been radically redefined. By the nineteenth century, however, the religious debate over marriage had largely been subsumed by a legal one (with extensive parliamentary wrangling over the status of married women's property rights,….
