However, globalization has come to change how people perceive those from other races. There is more appreciation nowadays that people irrespective of race are just but human beings and can live in peace as brothers as sisters. For a society to grow racial tolerance is essential. This paper looks into various influences of race in my community in Phoenix, Arizona. Discussion Working in a copper mining company in Phoenix has helped me to develop the way I perceive people from different racial backgrounds. It is however not easy to intermingle freely with people from other races. There are still minor tensions that exist which get eroded as people work together more and share experiences. I work as a clerk whereby I attend to all people irrespective of their position in the company. I have come to disregard the popular belief that people exhibit differences based on their racial affiliations. It is however true that people from different races normally behave and perceive things differently. My analysis on this issue is that this happens based not on their race but their background or environment. The basic issue is that all people be they Caucasians, Hispanics, Asians or African Americans, exhibit similarities in their values and beliefs. <strong>Term Paper - Nebraka state government | Subjects: Miscellaneous - College</strong>Essay - How will augmented reality (AR) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) function, and how might | Subjects: Miscellaneous - Ph.D.

Unoka’s actions made him popular in his community where they looked down on him as a weak individual giving the name, agbala, a term to resemble a woman’s weakness. Despite his father’s actions, Okonkwo is determined to outshine him and gain enough respect and wealth from the community. He develops an ambitious and character that makes him insensitive and dominating especially to his children and wives. Unlike his father, Okonkwo gains positive fame in his community by winning a wrestling match. The story takes another twist when Okonkwo is given Ikemefuna to take care of being a community leader. The boy is used in the text to symbolize the desire for Mbaino, the adjacent village to keep the peace with Umuofia. Okonkwo, full of ambition and desire to express his egoistic issues, dictates his opinions to his family and communities mostly through actions. From breaking the peace week rules to killing Ikemefuna, he demonstrates his character as stubborn and insecure. He wants to distance himself from his father’s doings and is acutely sensitive, especially when it comes down to proving how powerful he could be. The story tells of the tragic incidences that follow Okonkwo’s every action that makes all of his plans to succeed fail. itler, it is clear that the urge to establish peace and salvage Germany at a moment of crisis drove him to perpetrate the crimes that jeopardized his good reputation as an intelligent leader. In reality, his main aim was to streamline the economy of the country and make Germany a super power. In this effect, Adolf Hitler was an evil but not a monstrous leader.The evil side of Hitler is more pronounced than his good side in regard to his use of power within the time he led in Germany. Roberts notes that Adolf Hitler was an evil leader who fled the war that would span across the whole world and end in the worst suffering of human beings. Robert terms the First World War as “… one of the worst crimes mankind has ever committed, the Holocaust” (7). In this war, over ten million of human beings lost their lives and many more became victims of suffering. His role as an army in the war depicts him as one of the most evil persons who was pleased with the suffering of the human beings. It is during the period of the war that Hitler started his anti-Semitism movement, which culminated into the suffering of the Jews. From this angle, it is clear that Hitler was a man who did not fear participating in evil.When Hitler gained political power in Germany, he perpetrated a lot of evil against human kind. His discrimination of the Jews depicts him as one the most evil leaders that could do anything to pursue his goals. Over the history of Germany, the people had a presumption that the Jews backstabbed the country and that they were the unloyal lot that betrayed the country. Roberts notes that “the idea that Jews had stabbed Germany in the back…. Was a lie” (14). However, Hitler’s reaction to this rumor was severe and especially on the part of the Jews. He formed concentration camps where he ordered the torture of Jews in a situation that was worse than any prison. In these camps, the Jews were starved and the quantity of food that they ate was just enough for

They wanted some one to talk to them and address other aspects like taking them to church or asking some dear one to meet them, etc. However, the wards were full and nurses could not spend much time with each patient. They were working mechanically with no emotional aspect in their care. The ward incharge who realized this suggested an increase in staff to the management. However, in my opinion, what the ward needed was different case management and not just increase in staff. According to Smith (2003), "case management involves an approach and an organizational attitude to achieving these ends, not simply a team of nurses." Schifalacqua et al (2004) opined that in order to realize individual fiscal and clinical outcomes, it is very important to implement community-based advance case management program. This is because, one of the keys for self-management outcomes appears to be a personalised partnership. References MacKinnon-Schifalacqua, M., O'Hearn-Ulch, P., & Schmidt, M. (2004).

This is to be able to truly care for the sick in different communities. Without cultural competency, it is extremely difficult to offer fair and equal nursing care to all. There are two models that were used to describe culture and diversity. They are the theory of culture care: Diversity and Universality and Purnell model of nursing. The theory of culture care: Diversity and Universality focus on nursing and consequences of health care services. It also put emphasis on culture and care relationship as it focus on individuals. Finally, the theory acknowledges that caring is a universal concept that vary across different cultures. Purnell model brings communication, bio-cultural, high-risk behaviors, nutrition, workforce issues, pregnancy and childbearing practices, death rituals, health care practices and health care providers to explain culture more explicitly.

Term Paper - Framework for Assessing the UK Toy and Game Industry. | Subjects: Marketing - Undergraduate Individual nations require embracing a common culture for mutual understanding.Many cultures exist across the globe. The individual nations have a tendency to practice unique customs. The complexity of the cultures can be a huge barrier to the quest to realize a common culture. Some cultures with strong ideologies are associated with the global conflicts. In fact, the link of certain cultures with wars has been a major concern by powerful nations such as the United States (Dittmer 78). In this respect, a number of complex relations influence the comprehension of the contemporary culture. The media, interculturalism, and globalization have endeavored to promote the mutual cultural understanding. In this regard, the media has continued to portray the values embraced by different cultures. Similarly, globalization has attempted to bring nations with varying cultures together with the intent of shaping the economic and political agendas. However, the efforts to enhance cultural awareness face tremendous challenges. Communication barriers hamper the comprehension and incorporation of cultures of different nations.Communication barrier is a major drawback to the realization of a common culture. Different cultures have their way of communicating and interpreting of the messages. Notably, the organizations that operate overseas face the challenge of miscommunication. Consequently, the miscommunication tends to jeopardize cohesion, trust, and teams that outsource. Essentially, the cultural barriers amount to communication challenges in both written and verbal forms. In fact, the communication challenges prompt organizations to invest a lot of effort in decoding and encoding messages. The investment aims at increasing the slow interaction between the multinational companies and the locals. The extent of how the employees in virtual teams reveal their intentions through explicit verbal communication is greatly

His belief was that Christianity was the best form of religion practiced amongst all others and the Lutheran sect of Christianity was of a higher form when compared to Catholic, Puritan or Anglican sects.The main idea of Hegels dialectic is that all things and notions have internal contradictions. From Hegels point of view, understanding a thing or a notion will show that beneath the facade of an apparently simple view lies an inner contradiction. This inner contradiction would dissolve the simple form to a higher level, complex thing or idea that would properly withhold the contradiction. The triadic form of Hegel (being-nothingness-becoming/ immediate-mediate-concrete/ abstract-negative-concrete) describes this movement from inner contradiction to higher-level integration or unification ultimately gaining self realization which is the “absolute idea or knowledge” of mind and spirit or the closest, one can come to God. Hegel had given the need for dialectics and stated it is required to study things as they are and from there to show the bounds of partial classes of understanding. He referred to his dialectic as “the experience of consciousness” and its phenomenology as “the science of the experience of consciousness” (qtd. in Beiser 20). At the time of German idealism which was started by Hegel along with Fichte and Schelling he borrowed Kants theory of immanent ism and made it more radical or fundamental. Kant had modified enlightenments dogmatic emphasis on the world that is empirical and Hegel approved of it. However Kant had progressed till the “idealism of the finite” and according to Hegel it was not enough. Hegel wanted to develop idealism further so that faith and knowledge are inter-related and gelled together in the Absolute. He said that the traditional age old evidences of Gods existence were the Essay - Marketing Plan for AUP Coffee | Subjects: Miscellaneous - College This paper stresses that substance abuse can highly affect human behavior. Domestic violence is one of the implications of substance abuse. Due to its involvement in domestic violence the substance abuse can highly affect the daily life and the behavioral characteristics of women, as wives, and children within families worldwide. In practice, it has been proved that domestic violence incidents are not always reported, under the fear that such initiative would lead to the increase of the frequency of these incidents. The author talks that since no personal data will be involved in the research the ethical considerations that the study could cause are limited. In fact, the primary data used in the study could not set any ethical problem since there is no case of unpublished information. The statistics and other primary data employed for the study will be available to the public and there would be no risk of violation of privacy.This paper makes a conclusion that the victims, mostly women and children, have not the power to protect themselves against domestic violence while the legal measures for the prevention of this activity can take a lot of time in order to be ordered. Identifying the actual consequences of domestic violence, as caused by substance abuse, on women and children could help to understand the criteria on which the measures for controlling domestic violence should be based. The proposed study responds to the need for locating and establishing effective measures for protecting the most vulnerable members of the population, i.e. women and children, from domestic violence.Essay - Environmental and strategic analysis | Subjects: Miscellaneous - Ph.D.

UNIX is mostly opted by technical people as it is more secure and flexible whereas Windows is for the common people.UNIX and Windows are two major classes of operating systems who have enjoyed a competitive history and will enjoy a competitive future. Windows came into competition with UNIX in 1980’s when it came with Intel-Microprocessors that had increased the power of micro-computers. Then onwards their comparison began.An operating system is system software which is the life of a computer system and acts as an interface between the lower level hardware and the higher level software. It is the resource manager of any computer system. Hence, end users expect an operating system to be user friendly and expect it to achieve tasks for them in a less complex manner. (Gopalan & Sivaselvan, 2009, p. 1).UNIX was developed at AT&T’s Bell Laboratories in the early 1970’s by Dennis Ritchie, Ken Thompson, and others. At those times, a computer user was not a common person, he was a programmer himself and wrote program code that would be punched into a computer card along with the data and read by the computer so that it processes it and performs the desired task. These computer cards were fed into the computer as a bunch of cards which was called batch processing. In 1960’s, time-sharing which was a new way of using computers was being developed. Time-sharing allowed multiple users to interact directly with the computer, that is, it allowed multiple tasks to get processed. Multics was a time-sharing computer system that was being worked on by MIT and GE in 1969 but it was too complex. Ritchie, Thompson and others worked on their own time-sharing system which they called UNIX and it was simpler and an efficient operating system at that time. (Moritsugu, 2000, p. 14).At that time, every computer manufacturer

Lercanidipine: is a dihydropyridine calcium-channel blocker. Mode of Action (MOA): In deforming the channel, preventing the ion-control gating mechanisms, and/or interfering with the release of calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum, this drug prevents the influx of extracellular calcium within the myocardial and vascular smooth muscle cell membranes. The reduction in the intracellular calcium prevents the contraction of processes of the myocardial smooth muscle cells, leading to the dilation of the coronary and systemic arteries, leading to improved oxygen delivery to the myocardial tissues and decreased after load (1). Pharmacokinetic (PK): Completely absorbed after oral administration with bio-availability of 10%. Distribution: protein binding is 99%. Metabolised by CYP3A4, and 50% of the drug is excreted in the urine unchanged. The therapeutic activity lasts for 24 hours due to binding to lipid membrane. In severe renal dysfunction or dialysis-dependent patient - plasma level increases (2). Therefore, this drug should be contraindicated in severe renal impairment as in our patient’s case.

And it has been observed that it is the contemporary media that is playing the most significant role in the development of this “global compassion” (Hoijer, 2004, p.513). This is so according to Hoijer (2004) because, “the media expose pictures of distant victims of civil wars, genocide, massacres and other violence against civil populations, and play a basic role in giving publicity to human suffering” (p.513). But the question is how this media exposure of “distant suffering” impacts people’s minds and it is in this context that Hoijer (2004) had set out searching an answer to “how do people react to the emotional engagement that media offers by focusing on innocent victims of political conflicts, war and other violence?” (p.513). Answer that he (Hoijer, 2004) has arrived at, describes the development of a “global discourse of compassion”, having positive humanitarian consequences as well as inherent complexities and paradoxes (p.27). According to Hoijer (2004), the first stage of the process of development of “global compassion” is the “images of distant suffering” getting assimilated into “ordinary citizens’ perceptions of conflicts and crises in the world” (p.514). An example for this is cited by Hoijer (2004) when he pointed to the television visuals of people “queuing for bread in Sarajevo” getting shelled and killed, which led to the UN imposing sanctions against Serbia (p.514).

Research Paper - Morning warm-up, QA and QC procedures for Varian Linear Accelerator System. | Subjects: Family & Consumer Science - High school The Moral Dilemma a. Secularism vs. Religious Belief b. Violent & Non-violent Offences c. Love Research Paper: Abstract The teachings of Jesus Christ on non-violence, love for one’s neighbor, and forgiveness of sins pose a moral dilemma particularly for judges who are required to pass sentence on criminals convicted of crimes, as society may demand legal punishment for criminal offences but the Bible counsels one to forgive those who trespass against moral standards. Research Paper: There is a general misconception popularly that Christians are associated with deeply conservative political values and support public policies such as “tough on crime” campaigns, tougher sentencing laws for criminals, and even foreign wars in American politics. It is difficult in many ways to understand how Christians became associated with these political ideas because practically they would seem to conflict directly with the teachings of the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus counseled the practice of non-violence, love, and forgiveness to all his disciples. In considering what it means to be Christian, there are undoubtedly as many varieties of faith as there are individuals, for God and faith are very personal.

Research Paper - The Fall (of man) in Genesis | Subjects: Religion and Theology - Ph.D. Panic is one outcome of a stressful situation that numbs down any feasible accurate responses and overcoming it can be a challenge in itself. I was to catch a local flight from Bali to Jakarta and then fly back home through an international one. I arrived at the airport on time and since there was time left for the boarding side to open, I ended up reading a book on a nearby bench. Time went by and I was so consumed in the book that the boarding opened and I could not check in on time. I kept looking at the desk side but since there was no sign put up, I missed my chance to get the boarding pass. When I noticed that an awful lot of time had passed by and I checked with the main counter, I was told that the flights boarding was now closed and I had n option but to wait for the next flight available.I panicked and my heart beat went up. My stomach started to churn in an uncomfortable manner and I had no idea what to do. Even in an air conditioned airport, I felt like I was sweating and my palms were wet. My breathing was high and being clueless, I felt miserable. I gathered enough courage to have some water and calm my nerves. After settling down, I went to the help center to ask for the list of flights but unfortunately there were none available since it was a weekend and the flights were full. My immediate response was to inform my family back home and then to prepare myself for the delay.I managed to email my father about what had happened and then I kept checking the help desk to see if any flights had seats available. I managed to catch a flight to Jakarta but the situation that was created at that time was an unforgettable one. The stress that I faced during that time when the lady at the help desk informed me that there were no available seats for the next two days was unexplainable. After panicking for a while, I ended up thinking clearly and behaving accordingly instead of giving up and taking an incorrect

Additionally, peer support will contribute to enthusiasm and buy-in for the implementation process. Administrative support is equally important because it will influence the degree to which institutions will implement the program. Below is the process of obtaining informal approval:Formal approval will require the submission of the program implementation plan to Site Based Research Review. SBR will review the proposal to assess the validity and legality of the contents of the plan. Afterward, the SBR will assign a director who will then forward the proposal to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for review. The implementation will then commence after the approval of the IRB.Research studies reveal that health associated infections (HAIs) are some of the most common complications that healthcare organizations and practitioners face. For instance, a new research study reveals that more than two million people develop HAIs every year. The infections result in approximately 1,000 deaths every year. HAIs are also responsible for health care costs in excess of 30 billion dollars. Thus, addressing the issue of HAIs is critical in reducing healthcare costs and enhance patient safety. One of the approaches to addressing the problem of HAIs is reducing the prevalence of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) among patients. CAUTIs are the most typical examples of HAIs, and they account for more than 35 percent of infections. The U.S. Department of Health estimates the total annual cost of CAUTI to be 565 million dollars, and the annual rate of deaths from CAUTI is 8,205 (). Additionally, approximately six hundred thousand patients develop urinary tract infections from hospitals and cases of CAUTI are approximately 75 percent. However, the good news is that researchers have revealed that healthcare systems can prevent CAUTIs and that approximately 70 percent of CAUTI episodes can be prevented.Additional research studies reveal that patients

Even the most prepared businesses or organizations are prone to the adverse effects of disasters. In case of disasters, various agencies aid small businesses in disaster recovery. Such agencies include U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Farm Services Agency (FSA), Small Business Development Centers (SBDC), and other state agencies (Haddow, Bullock, & Coppola, 2011). The Federal Emergency Management Agency aids small businesses in disaster recovery through the provision of food, rescue services, water, housing, electrical power, and other basic resources (Federal Emergency Management Agency, 2015). Indeed, FEMA provides temporary housing for small businesses like the gymnasium for a limited period. The agency also offers financial support to repair the damages caused by the disaster on small businesses not covered by the insurance (Wells Fargo Bank, 2013). FEMA also replaces destroyed buildings if such buildings were not under any insurance cover (Federal Emergency Management Agency, 2015). The agency can also provide direct assistance to support a permanent or semi-permanent construction of businesses affected by disasters (Wells Fargo Bank, 2013). Ultimately, the agency offers financial support for other expenses and severe basic or business needs emanating from the disaster. Other services covered by FEMA include crisis counseling, disaster unemployment assistance, legal services, and special tax considerations for affected small businesses (Haddow, Bullock, & Coppola, 2011).The Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) also aid small businesses in disaster recovery. Indeed, SBDC offers confidential assistance to affected businesses after a disaster (Haddow, Bullock, & Coppola, 2011).

This essay declares that the basic theory says that microprocessors can be embedded in everyday objects with the intention that they could be able to communicate information. Basically, these objects communicate with each other to carry out operations in support of the user. In fact, one of the basic goals of pervasive computing is to fade away from human observation- however the applications embedded in electronic devices must be down to business. In other words, they must be able to guess the requirements of the users in an attempt to provide them with anytime, anywhere desired information. In addition, both the terms pervasive and ubiquitous stand for "existing everywhere."This paper stresses that the target of scholars and researchers researching on pervasive computing is to build stylish products that can be used to communicate inconspicuously. Furthermore, these products are connected to the Internet and the data they produce is without problems accessible. There are many advantages of such technology based systems. This research will assess such advantages and will also outline some of the major issues in pervasive computing. This paper will also discuss some of the possible application areas of pervasive computing along with some ethical issues of pervasive computing. The pervasive computing can be implemented in a wide variety of departments, yet some of them still have not been identified. Some of the major applications of pervasive computing can be for healthcare, healthcare, environmental, transport monitoring and a lot of others.

United States is home to different cultures (Hofstede 50-100). The white Americans comprise the largest group based in America. These white Americans are themselves divided into various sub groups and ethnicities. The next largest group in America is of the Hispanic Americans, who comprise of around 17 percent of the total population of America (American Community Survey 5-25). The current study aims to analyze the United States based networks targeting the US Hispanic Market. The objective of the project is to analyze the current trends of programming and advertisement across various Hispanic oriented television networks in order to identify their trends, strategies and opportunities for audiences. Hispanics have been dwelling on the American soil for generations. Three generations of Hispanics have been identified. As a result of the changing consumer environment, the preferences and likes of most of the Hispanics have changed (Parangimalil 420-425). Now, most of the Hispanics prefer English language over Spanish. Use of social media sites have also increased. The overall Hispanic viewership is increasing at a fast phase.

Thus, in examining gender inequality issues such as access to valuable resources need to be considered. (Giddens, 2006, p 468)Functionalists’ theorists view on gender inequalityFunctionalists’ theorists hold the view that gender inequality in society in terms of the division of labor between men and women is biologically based. Thus, men and women perform tasks that they feel they are biologically suited to. George Murdock an anthropologist concludes in her survey that sexual division of labour exists in all societies and thus sees it as both convenient and practical for women to concentrate on domestic and family roles. Talcolt Persons, a functionalist theorist asserts that the family as a social unit operates best when there is a clear division of labour among the genders with women performing the emotional and expressive role, that is, providing care and security to family and the men performing instrumental roles, that is, being the for family needs. (Giddens, 2006, p 468)Conflicts theories view on gender inequalityConflicts theories ideas on inequality are found in ideologies of to Karl Max and Fredrich Engels who viewed the cause of domination of women by men, as being rooted in class inequality. According to Engel, men gained control over women during the traditional subsistence days when societies produced more produce than required for family use. As a result of the surplus production, men gained control of the economic surplus. The male gender came up with strategies to ensure the dominance continued. The male gender devised two methods.

Kotler describes ‘product positioning’ as an essential marketing tool to carve a suitable niche as the company cannot hope to serve all segments of the market simultaneously.Product positioning will also help decide advertising campaign and brand positioning keeping in mind the targeted class of customers using scarce resources most judiciously.As Kotler emphasizes that the company needs to shift its focus on buyer wants rather than its needs. Product differentiation is a key strategy that the Roast needs to adopt in its services, product offerings with numerous varieties in its menu so that customers have several options to choose from. Thus, distinguishing company’s product line from the competition is a key marketing strategy that can play a pivotal role to attract targeted customers. Services also play an important role in differentiating with the competition so the company must focus on it as an integral part of the product differentiation strategy.Employees are considered the biggest asset in any organization and they play a pivotal role in success or failure of any organization (Schofield, 2006).

The case was mainly orchestrated by Homer Plessy, and on 7 June 1892, he bought a first class ticket at the Press State Depot and boarded the car that was reserved for only white people on the East Louisiana Railroad. The railroad company, which opposed the law on the grounds that it would require the purchase of more railcars, had been informed already as to Plessy's racial lineage. Plessy was asked to vacate the seat when he took it on the train bound to Covington and he refused to do so and was immediately arrested. The train was then stopped and Plessy was remanded for a trial in Orleans. He then argued that his rights as per the Thirteenth and the Fourteenth Amendment had been violated and that he had been discriminated against. Legal issues: Upholding of the constitutionality of state laws requiring racial segregation in public facilities under the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’. Majority opinions: Decision handed by a vote of 7 to 1 with the majority opinion written by Justice Henry Billings Brown. Plessy’s arguments were rejected which were based on the Fourteenth Amendment with a decision that the state of Louisiana did not violate racial laws and a view was rejected stating that the state implied blacks to be inferior and merely contended that under the purview of public policy, the two races should be separated.

In this speech, I shall be covering bullying in schools in regards to the different forms of the habit, negative repercussions and the prevention measures.Bullying among students takes various forms, such as physical, emotional, verbal or cyber harassment. This implies that the victims may experience harassment in any form that is prevalent within their schools. I would like to tell the audience here that the physical and verbal forms are common with the boys while girls normally use the emotional and verbal tendencies (Langan, 2013). The cyber bullying aspect is also on the rise because of the advent of the social media networks where students interact with their peers and strangers. Similarly, both girls and boys can still apply the other forms of bullying that they like and depends on environmental and background factors. Let me also add that bullies are always known individuals, especially the popular students (Langan, 2013). They take advantage of their popularity and seniority within the school to harass others for their own personal interests. This also takes place in the presence of other students who might influence the action to proceed or be prevalent in their school. The parents should try to mold their children to embrace good manners and know how to relate with others. It is also appropriate for the teachers to encourage the students to speak out whenever something like bullying happens (Langan, 2013).Bullying poses negative consequences in schools and affects the bullies and the victims in similar measures. For instance, bullying can derail a student’s academic performance due to the psychological effects and physical injuries (Pepler, Rigby & Smith, 2004). The mental well being of a student is vital for academics and socialization since he or she feels comfortable learning in that environment.
