I have just completed the reading of Beowulf, which was translated by Burton Raffel.1)     Beowulf is an extremely exciting and fascinating tosh ab egress a character who lived in medieval Europe. The shocking thing for me about this buy the farm was to find out that it is the earliest poem in a modern European language. Beowulf is to the English what Homer and the Odyssey were to the Greeks. Although this is the earliest poem, it is still fun and exciting to read. I didnt mean that a poem which has been around for more than dozen centuries, could keep my interest. I was wrong. The book is filled with more blood and guts then the average summer horror flick. After the battle with Grendel, the monster which has been desolation the Danish countryside and killing countless men, Beowulf makes sure that all people know that he had injured the great monster. It is translated that, "...no Dane doubted the victory, for the proof, hanging high from the rafters w here Beowulf had hung it, was the monsters arm, claw and shoulder and all" (Raffel, 49). It was the shocking use of detail and exciting battles that was left with me when I finished the book. I guess all books, regardless of their age can still be fun and entertaining to read.2)     Good literature has a very precise definition for me. I judge a piece of literature on ternion different criteria, 1) does it have memorable characters, 2) does the work take me to a place and let me experience things that I have never experienced before, and 3) will the work stay with me long after I have completed reading it. This is the criteria on which I judge a book and according to this, I believe that Beowulf should be considered "good" literature.I always ask myself, when I am done reading a book, did the book have memorable characters. In Beowulf, the characters were memorable. A minor character in the book, the king of the Danes, named Hrothgar, is a character who sticks out greatly in my mind. Hrothgar was a king of the Danes and built for them a huge mead anteroom in which men were able to eat drink and be merry. It was then that the great monster, Grendel, came and destroyed the utopia which was Herot by eating and feasting on the Danish warriors. Hrothgar sticks out in my mind because I could envision him, in the time before Beowulf came to the Danes, in anger and despair over this monster that wouldnt stop killing his soldiers and friends.

The Relation of Rights to the RealThis paper approaches Benthams ontology of in force(p)s from a viewpoint influenced by American philosophic pragmatism. I examine how rights are conceived and discussed in relation to the existent. Jeremy Bentham maintained that all rights are fictitious entities. But, in privileging political over moral and natural rights, Bentham implies that legal rights project in a privileged position over natural rights with regard to the relation of mind to the actual. By reason of its enforceability through sanctions, a legal right for Bentham has a privileged connection to the real. I argue that nonlegal rights can be conceived as bearing a roughly parallel relation to the real in guiding human conduct by suasion rather than sanctions. Their relationship to something real and observable is their relation to voluntary conduct through belief. Benthams ontology dictates a distinct legal and political system. Practically, it leaves the real existence of righ ts entirely in the hands of government officials, and the only choice of humans kindle in securing rights lies in their enactment and enforcement in and through a legal regime. In this paper I will approach Benthams ontology of rights from a viewpoint influenced by American philosophical pragmatism. In order to do so, some introductory remarks are necessary.There is more than one version of American pragmatism, but I think it safe and sound to say that there are only two that are relevent here I will call them A and B. Pragmatism A come ups its main sources in Peirce, James, Dewey, and Holmes, and tends toward what might roughly be identified as ontological realism. (1) Pragmatism B draws from a somewhat different reading of Dewey and Holmes, not so practically from Peirce and James, and has been profoundly influenced by Wittgenstein and the so-called linguistic turn in philosophy its principal exponent has been Richard Rorty. It tends toward both antirealism and, some might say , a contemporary nominalism. For those interested I will provide explanatory references (2) and proceed to pragmatism A, which is the preferred version for me and the approach I find so helpful.Why? Because I find the literature of law and rights filled with distinct and often conflicting ontological assumptions. In a moment I will give an example. But to restart the paper, we must start with the fact that there are conflicting theories of law and its leading categories, from the most general (e.g. rights) to the more specific (like contract).

EducationThere are many definitions of education, many people have divergent options of education and how it should be taught. I however will explore three definitions. William James definition who was a philosopher and psychologist will be explained. I will use an online dictionary. Lastly, Websters everyday English Dictionary definition for education will be explored.William James states that, Education, in short, cannot be better described than by calling it the organization of acquired habits of express and tendencies to behavior. When you are educated, it seems that your conduct and tenancies toward behavior would be different from that of an uneducated person. An educated person would associate the knowledge they have retained in a different manner than an uneducated one. I a...

The Way We WereAs you listen to the news, radio, or read a newspaper, you identify one thing in common after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City--unity. New Yorkers pass known to be hard-ass and the rudest pack youll ever meet. Self-indulged in their own world, they knocked people down who stood between them and the next step ahead of them. We, as Americans, felt the progeny of the destruction all over the nation, although it didnt happen in our hometown. Most people either knew someone, or knew someone who knew of someone that worked in the WTC building or were on those flights. Not until our safety was raped from us did we stop to unite, as a country, to help those in need. America is known as the land of opportunities. Therefore, we are taught that to obtain our cultural goals, we must try to achieve them by almost any means necessary. America was a very self-absorbed country. For instance, look at the 80s, that era named the era of greed. Were a very wealthy country with wealth comes greed. We like to keep money in our pockets at all times--meaning we always indispensability to have money. Everywhere you look now, there it is, the American flag our symbol of pride. One nation, under God with liberty and justice for all. We have become fall in as a nation. The American Red Cross has raised millions of dollars with the help of normal, everyday citizens. Celebrities have joined together and held telethons to raise millions of dollars also. The American flag has been in such high demands all over the country that theyre almost impossible to find in stores. From car washes to simple donation buckets in supermarkets, everywhere you go people are contributing. Before the 9/11 attacks, one would never have doubts about whos on the same flight as you, or olf spotory modality compelled to wash your hands after touching the mail. We took for granted what most people dont have--freedom. The freedom to walk down the street without the fea r of seeing a terrorist act and living without the fears of being on a national heighted security alert for more terrorist attacks. Hell, were the land of the free, or perhaps we took for granted that we really were. Because of these attacks, many people are having second thought about doing many everyday things.

President Barack Obama State of the Union Address Critique The leader of the free world, President Barack Obama, intercommunicate Congress and the fellow citizens of the United States of America on the current State of the Union. The President enlightened America on multiple issues concerning the economy, education, ancestrys, foreign affairs and more. The mother tongue given on the night of January 27th 2010 attracted over 48 million television viewers. Strong attitudes and opinions were exemplified immediately following the completion of his mention.A poll administered by CBS News illustrates that 65% of the (3,968) respondents feel as if the President has accomplished far less than what they expected at heart his first year in office. Another poll taken by CBS suggests that 47% of (3,571) respondents feel that the biggest blunder under the Obama administration is the lack of focus on creating jobs and unemployment. These statistics ar of severe importance to the American f lock and it is for this very reason that I address this particular issue at heart this assignment.As a current senior at the collegiate level, career opportunities and job security becomes more of a significant issue as graduation approaches at a rapid pace. Currently, the traditional thought of going to college and attaining a horizontal surface and doing well in school does not guarantee a safe-secure career. The direction that this country has been headed for the last decade has frightened many college students into thinking that, If a college ground level does not solidify a good job what will? This issue increases the growth of concern for our province.It did not take very long for the President to address the job dilemma that the country is facing. Within 15 minutes of his lecture, he noted that creating jobs is the focus for 2010. In concordance with the President, I also believe that jobs should be at the top of the agenda because in order to revamp the economy it is ver y essential to get the unemployment rate down. If the unemployment rate stays where it is or gets worsened by increasing, Americans will continue to look for ways to cut back spending.Due to the lack of jobs being lay downd and fear of job loss, we, the people, are currently on edge and have trouble deciding whether to invest or save. With the addition of new jobs, our faith will strengthen and confidence will grow within us to do both and that is what has to happen in order for the economy to regain legs and get the country running as it should. Later in his address the President goes on to note that the engine of the American economy has been and will always be that of small businesses.In a valiant attempt to urgency hiring, the president called for the elimination of capital gains valuatees on small business investment and tax credits for new hiring and investments in new equipment. He also states that, Its time to finally slash the tax breaks for companies that ship our jobs overseas, and give those tax breaks to companies that create jobs right here in the United States of America. With this plan, the President has called for an end for tax breaks for companies that ship our jobs overseas but to help fund tax cuts that reward companies for investing and creating jobs in the United States.Moreover, the President future take fored his notion to create new jobs in America by mentioning that the government will invest $8 billion into a rapid train system which will let down construction in Florida later this year. He states that this attempt to have the fastest most-reliable train system will format over 2 million extra jobs for Americans. In another attempt to decrease the unemployment rate he mentions that the United States will increase our exportation of goods to other countries around the world by duplicate our number of exports now over the next five years.He continues by saying that to meet this goal, Congress will launch a National trade Ini tiative that will help farmers and small businesses increase their exports and expand their markets. This will allow other countries to opt for our homeland goods which mean that increasing the production of goods within the United States will create increases in revenue and job opportunities. The President also called on the Senate to pass a jobs bill that he can sign.Stating thatThe household has passed a jobs bill. As the first order of business this year, I urge the Senate to do the same, and I know they will. People are out of work. They are hurting. They need our help. And I want a jobs bill on my desk without delay. The bold and difficult steps the President took to stabilize the financial system have bring down the cost of Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) by over $200 billion, providing additional resources for job institution and for deficit reduction.Within the ladder element of 2009, the President outlined a package of targeted measures to help further stimulate private sector hiring, including measures to facilitate small business growth, green jobs and infrastructure. Urging for support of the Republicans, the President mandates that it is time for strong legislation to be passed on behalf of the Senate. Out of the major initiatives presented by President Barack Obama I think that there is not a major need for a rapid train system as of right now, I do believe that the ultimate good would be the creation of 2 million jobs because of it.Other than this minor rebuttal, I wholeheartedly agree with majority of the different ideas and concepts that the President proposed in reference to jobs during his the State of the Union Address. In addition, I also have full belief in the fact that this country will arise from economic corruption and return to being the nation of superior power and financial stability. Marcques D.

The Bubonic offense or the total darkness demise has been in the history books since the chivalrous times. This deadly distemper has claimed nearly 1. 5 million lives in europium (Gottfried). The Black cobblers last hit Europe in October of 1347 and quickly bypass through with(predicate) most of Europe by the end of 1349 and continued on to Scandinavia and Russia in the 1350s. Not only did the plague effect the European population by kill champion-third to two-thirds (Gottfried), it in like manner hurt the social and economic structures of e actu each(prenominal)y European society. How it spreadThe Black stopping point actually first appeared in the Himalayan expanse around 1250 AD. There are several theories as to how the disease made its way to Europe. One theory is that since the plague is transmitted from a bite of a flea, that fleas that lived on marmots that were indigenous to the region were the original transporters (Clay,1). The first recorded appearance of the plague in Europe was at Messina, Sicily in October of 1347. It was believed to have arrived on profession ships that came from the Black Sea, past Constantinople and through the Mediterranean (Gottfried).This r break throughe was used to bring import items such as silks and porcelain, which were carried over territory to the Black Sea from as faraway away as China (Gottfried). No hotshot know the exact point of origin of the Black Death that what most scholars will comply with is that the disease reach Europe by rodents. The reason given was due to the climatic shifts in the area which caused a shortage of food. The disease ridden rodents migration put them in contact with human populations, thus, putting humans in contact with the disease carrying fleas. So many community were impacted because most people lived in very crammed and tight spaces.This also made waste disposal an issue, which caused people to just tip their waste out the window of their home, bringing the rats. Because everyone was so close, the fleas could easily pollute hundreds of people in one day, so no one was safe (Gottfried). The people that did manage to escape death was due to the fact that their immune governances being able to withstand the plague (Gottfried). Types of Plague What killed so many wasnt due to just one type of plague going around The disease that devastated Europe was caused by three different types of plague bubonic, pneumonic, and septicemic.All three are bacterial infections caused by Yersinia pestis (Gottfried). The most common form was the bubonic plague. Fleas that lived on the plague-infected rats spread the bubonic plague (Gottfried). After 6 days people who were infected with this strain would develop flu-like symptoms and blood pressure drops, fondnessbeats faster, and a sudden febrility erupts, accompanied by chills, weakness, and headache. Next, a black pus filled bump surrounded by an inflamed red ring shows up at the range that was bitten (Got tfried). The lymph node would begin to swell with pus.When the enlarged lymph nodes would burst they would also emit dark colored blood and pus. This is how the name Black Death came to be coined (Vunguyen). A second type of plague was that of pneumonic. This plague could spread with a sneeze and could quickly jump from person to person and though it was less common than the bubonic form, but more deadly. This form was contracted through breathing in a mutated, airborne strain of the bacteria. The infected person would experience fluid twist up in the lungs. This very unfortunate circumstance would, in turn, cause suffocation of the infected individual.This particular form of the bacteria would cause death at bottom a short time span, usually two or three days (Boeckl). The third type of plague was speticemic plague. Though it was the least common out of the three, it was the deadliest. Septicemic plague was carried in the blood and was contracted only through blood-to-blood conta ct. The person infected with this type would develop a high fever but they would not develop many outward symptoms that they had contracted the plague. The individuals who were infected with this final strain of the bacterium were usually dead within 24 hours.Almost all who contracted either the pneumonic or septicemic plague died from the infection (Boeckl). Causes of the Black Death The causes of the Black Death the flea, the rat, and the bacillus Yersinia pestis have been labeled the profane trinity (Boeckl). The flea is able to live in environmental conditions of about 74 Fahrenheit and 60% humidity (Ibid). Before the Black Death reached Europe, they were experiencing those same types of abide conditions. The rat flea, Xenopsylla cheopis and the human flea, Pulex irritans, are both capable of transmitting plague (Boeckl).Sometimes, an infected flea cannot ingest blood because Yersinia pestis obstructs its digestive tract. The blockage causes a flea to pat into a bitten host rather than ingest the hosts blood, thereby infecting the host with plague (Boeckl). Unable to eat, the famished flea will bite with more frequency, accelerating the spread of plague. A flea can be carrying Yersinia pestis without it blocking the fleas digestive tract, in which case the flea does not transmit plague when it bites a host. Also, Yersinia pestis can only ship a victim through a bite, as the bacilli cannot pass through intact skin (Gottfried).Social Changes The disease took a major toll on the population of Europe but as it wiped out communities it also caused changes in the social structure of European society. Europe was run by a feudalistic system (Vunguyen). As death took its toll, people started to question the way of life. When the Black Death swept over Europe and wiped out a third of its population, it also dismantled Feudalism. The feudal system was structured like a pyramid with the King being at the top and having complete control. The King owned everything he had the power to decide who he would lease the land to.If he did allow a citizen to lease part of his land, before doing so they had to swear to an oath of trueness (Vunguyen). People who did rent the Kings land were called Baron/Baronesses (Vunguyen). The leased land was called a manor, and the Barons were a good deal called the Lord of the Manor (Vunguyen). They were allowed to establish their own system of justice, mint their own money and set their own taxes. The Barons had to serve on the royal council, pay rent and provide the King with Knights for military service when he demanded it in return for the land they had been given (Vunguyen).When the King and his court travelled around the country, the Barons also had to provide lodging and food. The Barons kept as often of their land as they desired, then divided the rest among their Knights (Vunguyen). Knights were given land by the Baron in return for military service when demanded, and to protect the manor. The Knights kept as much of the land as they wished for their own person-to-person use, and distributed the rest of it to serfs although they werent as rich as the Barons, Knights were quite richesy (). Serfs were given land by Knights in exchange for free labor, food and services whenever it was desired.They had no rights and werent allowed to leave the Manor. They had to ask their Lords permission before they could marry, and were often handle and poor (). The serfs or peasants were a key group in the population so when they started to die off, everything went downhill. The serfs served everyone on the pyramid and now Barons were willing to pay high wages and offer extra benefits (Vunguyen). All their life they had lived off the serfs hard cogitation, and were willing to pay them to stay on the manor to continue slaving for them. When the serfs died, the foundation on which feudalism relied upon was broken.The pyramid of power broke, and everything was a mess. Serfs left(p) to find hig h wages due to the labor shortages. The land that had usually been the primary source of wealth was now worthless (Vunguyen). Entire estates were deserted as families fell to the plague and died, or fled in a vain attempt to escape its fury, were there for the victorious (Vunguyen). As Europe evolved away from relying on land as the main source of prosperity, a rising middle- crystalize claimed more and more wealth and prestige, as the once-noble began to quickly lose both (Vunguyen). The end of Feudalism had started and progressed each day as the plague claimed more lives.As the days went on people wondered, if they necessitate to change the way they lived or worshipped God. Many found that if they continued to live and worship as they had for centuries, the plague was not being pacified (Clay). This caused many people to abandon the way of life that they were accustomed to and chose a life that contrasted with social norms. A large group of people, desperate to point their finge rs at someone, alleged and criminate many different groups which included witches, lepers and Jews (Clay). In central Europe, the flagellants convincingly charged the Jews.On a tragic day in Strasbourg alone, over 8,000 Jews were killed for being the point of vain suspicions (). This quote shows just how the mind of Europeans changed Many were uncertain about the cause of this great mortality. In some places, they believed that the Jews had poisoned the worlds, and so they killed them. In some other areas, that it was a deformity of the poor, so they chased them out in others, that it was the nobles, and so they the nobles hesitated to go out into the world. Finally, it reached the point where guards were posted in cities and towns, and they permitted no one to enter, unless he was well known.And if they found anyone with powders or unguents, they made him swallow them, fearing that these might be poisons (Clay, 2-3). Someone who survived the plague wrote Everyone appeared to be rich because they had survived and regained measure in life. Now, no one knows how to put their life back in order(Clay, 3). No one knew how to put their life back together after the plague hit. When all the crazy house died down and order was restored, the society was much different than what it once was. The disease did not discriminate it killed people from all different social classes.The peasants now see that everyone was made up of the same flesh, even though who once ruled over them. This epiphany led the serfs see the inequality of the system and they saw it as foul and unjust (Clay, 3). Because of all the affliction and misery there was much lawbreaking and because most of the law enforcers had also been hit by the plague there was not much that was done about it (Clay, 3). This quote shows just how their mentality was changing. Lawbreakers could not be stopped oddly by the lords and so once peasants realized all ties could be broken, they gained a new level of freedo m (Clay, 4).Peasants and lord relationships were not the only thing that changed individuals in the same social circle were forced to interact with one another differently. As a result of so many deaths, women were now being served by male servants and it did not matter if they were of noble birth or not. Men serving women was something taboo and unheard of before the plague, but the disease made that change. Noble women had to a find a different lifestyle below normal circumstances, these women would have been dishonored and shunned but this was not the case. Economic Effects All the death that fell upon Europe created a major labor shortage.It was a dominos affect, if the plague hit an area or manor in the summer, there wouldnt be enough serfs to harvest the crops in the fall. If it hit in the winter, there wasnt enough workers to plant new crops in the spring (The Black Death, 1348). So inevitably there wasnt any one left on enkindle and maintain the land. The ones who did with stand the plague, moved else-where for better wages (The Black Death, 1348). Not only did it affect the farms, it hurt businesses or building projects. Cathedral that usually were beautiful and performed weekly services were left eerily empty with no priests to conduct services.The barons did not have enough knights and serfs to give to them and so many manors were abandoned. When someone dies normally, there would be a service and immediately be buried, well that didnt happen during the Black Death era. No one was left to bury the dead. Citizens, lower and middle classes were scared, they stayed in the homes believing they would be safe. The shelter did not stop the disease from entering and since they were poor they did not get the care and attention they needed and most of them died (The Black Death, 1348).Instead of suffering, many decided to take their own lives and committed suicide in the bridle-path others died in their homes but only found because their neighbors smelled the decaying body. Dead bodies were everywhere on every corner and in every home that wasnt abandoned (The Black Death, 1348). Most of them were treated in the same manner by the survivors, who were more concerned to get rid of their rotting bodies than moved by charity towards the dead. With the support of porters, if they could get them, they carried the bodies out of the houses and laid them at the door where every morning quantities of the dead might be seen.They then were laid on biers or, as these were often lacking, on tables (The Black Death, 1348). Bodies upon bodies were brought to the church every day and almost every hour so it was impossible to give them a proper burial especially since they wanted to bury each person in the family grave, according to the old custom (The Black Death, 1348). Although the cemeteries were full they were forced to dig huge trenches, where they buried the bodies by hundreds. Here they stowed them away like bales in the hold of a ship and co vered them with a little earth, until the whole trench was full (The Black Death, 1348). cultural Effects The plague not only affected humans it also impacted the arts. In the Medieval period, people had concentrated mainly on the Church, God, and personal salvation. The plague was evident in paintings, sculptures, and architecture, everything was centered on death. The arrival of plague harkened in a new darker era of painting. Paintings were overflowing with tortured souls, death, dying, fire and native sulphur (The Effect of Black Death on Art and Artists in the Medieval Period). Thousands of painters, craftsmen, patrons of the arts died during the plague. The disease tore a hole in the heart of the cultural world.The effects of the plague were lasting, bringing a somber darkness to visual art, literature, and music (The Effect of Black Death on Art and Artists in the Medieval Period). Writers and painters imaginations became dark and gloomy. The unknowing survival created a atm osphere of gloom and doom influencing artist to move away from optimistic themes and turn to images of Hell, daystar and the Grim Reaper (The Effect of Black Death on Art and Artists in the Medieval Period). Many painters simply gave up art with the thought process that it was hopeless to try and create beauty in a hellish world.The Decameron by Boccaccio, a collection of medieval tales and folklore is the most famous literary work that came from that time period (The Black Death). The collection is set in the Italian countryside where aristocrats, fleeing the Plague as it ravages Florence, are stranded without their usual entertainments. To pass the time, they allege each other stories, from which Boccaccio harvested a rich storehouse of traditional narrative. The Decameron eventually became the foundation for many other Renaissance works, including several of Shakespeares plays (The Black Death). Positive ConsequencesIts hard to find positive in so much death but the plague act ually helped in a few ways. First being manpower, because of the shortages, manpower had so much more value. Peasants werent readily available in large numbers so the ones still animated found themselves in high demand (The Black Death). The ones who had all the power, kings and dukes, now found themselves bargaining with laborers over working conditions, and also the lower class were able to demand better pay for their services (The Black Death). Also, serfdom was terminated, so those peasants that were slaves and tied to the land were no longer obligated to farm and serve.And one other positive result of the bubonic plague was the development of medicine as a science in the West. Islamic doctors had advocating general cleanliness and the value of studying anatomy but Western healers prior to the black death were still using practices like the theory of humors (The Black Death). But when Plague wiped out nearly all the doctors of Europe, because the doctors had to attend to the dy ing and because of this were exposed at a higher rate to the more virulent pneumonic form of Plague. With so many doctors dying, it created a change in both personnel and precept (The Black Death).Strangely, western medicine owes much to plague. Conclusion The Black Death started in 1347 and continued for a full five years, this devastating plague spread throughout Europe, leaving more than twenty million people dead. The consequences to Europe were profound. Besides immeasurable death, traditional medieval society broke, the economies were fractured, and art and literature took a turn from light to dark. Though it spread throughout Europe, the Black Death was world-shattering and shows how even the smallest of things, the microbial world, can at times steer the course of human civilization.

Before starting to comp be and measure the return of investment for an data system, it is better to define harm such as nurture engineering science and Return of enthronization or ROI. Information technology is a field concerned with the production, manipulation, sharing and transfer or information through the use of electronically-based equipments to satisfy mans needs (Albacea p. 4).Thus, in this definition we are non just referring to information itself but besides for the communication aspects of the information system which is of wide use today. The Return of Investment, on the other hand, includes the costs and benefits in flummoxting up a firm. Mainly, it is more concentrate on maximizing the benefits of the firm. In dealing with information systems, the definition of the return of investment is better to be extended so a to include not only the tangible but also the tangible benefits a firm or an office idler derived in establishing their own information system (G rimes).To father a clear measurement of the ROI, let us fool only two groups of consideration. Since most of the websites on the internet are foc utilise only on either commercial-grade or information sake, then we shall consider the firms that invests on utilizing information systems for commercial purposes and the other ones are those that utilizes the information system for information sake such as the government.In the first category, measuring the cost of building an information-related investment such as websites for selling or doing e-commerce screw be clearly seen. E-commerce is an novelty in the information technology where consumers can transact with sellers using only information system (Albacea p. 256). Since the cost for hiring a programmer, for example, in creating a website for a commercial firm, the seriousware and other features such as searching or blog which can be brought through licensing are known, then the total cost of establishing this stigmatize up can be computed and is just can be known by making a total of all of the expenses and efforts.The other part, which is computing the benefits, is rather the difficult part of it. This may be the reason why business owners and IT leaders are not interested in knowing or having a precise or definite benefit evaluation or burdeniveness after they had made a website or an e-commerce page. According to Mary K. Pratt of the Computerworld of US in one of her features, the ROI for a website must be necessarily measured.She justified the ROI is truly measurable, and that those companies that are not measuring it doesnt really concern of what their moneys worth. She takes, for example, Kia Motors. Kia Motors has for their websites visitor and mostly, what their basis of ranking is on the probability or likelihood of the customer to purchase a motor. They said that those that are downloading their white page are more likely to purchase a motor than those that only browse through their homepa ge.They can also measure the benefits on how advertisements on the Internet have changed their production and gross profit. If they see that they had made an advertisement on the Internet but has no increase on the sales, assuming all other factors are held constant, then the information-based technique they use is ineffective.Since ROIs concern is in costs and benefits, we should also take the advantages of having information related systems than not having any. For example, we can measure how we can save money by replacing the paper ads or printed documents by the electronic version.About 18%, according to the analysts, of the printed document of a business firm becomes run out or not updated after just s regular days or a week-long of time. Thus, after this period, they must be replaced by the updated ones. On the other hand, modify existenceations on the web will cost less than updating the printed ones (McGrath). Hence, this is one way of showing how information systems can c ause a movement of the calculation of the ROI.For the firms that utilizes the information system for commercial purposes, ROI can be measured in this way the cost or the expenses can be easily calculated by just summing up the expenses made in putting up or establishing an electronic-based project, and the benefits, though not clearly seen, can be calculated by victorious into consideration its effect on the business and how it can cut costs for the establishment.Now, let us look at the second category which is the firms or offices that utilizes information system for information-sake. The most common example for this category is the government. Usually, included in their budget is the allocation for having information systems that are helpful for public. If the benefits in the commercial-related are not clearly seen, here in the second category, the benefits are even more difficult to measure.Take United States for example. According to Center for Technology of government activ ity at the University of Albany, even after some years of having information system exclusive for government information, the return of investment for this particular project is uncertain and is very hard to put in numbers (ctg.albany.eduPrintVersion=1). Why is this so?Similar to the first category, the input resources for putting up or for the establishment of the information system to be apply by the government can be readily computed for this is only the sum of all the expenses needed in the establishment. This will surely includes the wages or salaries of the personnel office involved, the purchases made, and other licensing expenses.Government usually has its websites for its departments to ensure that the public will be well informed of national issues and information that are of public concern or the public can have great use of them. Again, return of investment is concern with the cost and the benefits. Now, how can we measure the benefits? If the members of the first cate gories benefits can be measured by seeing the effect of the system to their business, governments measurement of the benefits is a lot more different.Remember that the benefits as defined earlier simultaneously with the Return of Investment dont only include the tangible benefits but also the non-tangible ones. Thus, looking at the example earlier, the government has its own way of measuring the benefits. They had a standard assessment technique that gives results whether their investments or efforts in putting up the information system dedicated to serve the public has a significant effect or just a waste of time, effort and money (Grimes).This assessment technique needs some adjustments as justified by the Center of Technology for Government. This leads them to propose the Public Value framework (Cresswell). The Public Value Framework emphasizes the role and importance of the public in assessing the performance of the information system used by the government. Unlike the previous system where only the government are responsible for the evaluation done, the second system or the Public Value Framework will give power for the public in assessments.Therefore, for the firms or offices that utilize information system for information sake, like the first one, they had a clear tally for cost but a rather difficult computation for benefits. The ROI can be computed by computing the cost through obtaining the summation of all the expenses and the benefits can be seen on the effects or how their objectives of putting up the system are fulfilled. That is, if the public has more satisfaction in using the system effected by the government, then the governments return of investment is indeed higher.In general, measuring the return of investment for an information system is not an easy caper because of the complexity on the non-tangible benefits it has to offer, even if the cost of establishing the information system is clearly and be easily computed. In the end, the bas is of the measurement of the return of investment is free in how it would affect the entities it is intended to be useful for or how the goals or objectives of a firm who puts up the system is attained or become more possible. It is recommended that more studies be made to make a standard basis for computation of the return of investment even if it has to involve many factors that are hard to put in numbers.ReferencesPratt, Mary K.( May 28, 2007) Measuring Your Websites Return of Investment.

For instance, Reality Shows are supposed to be based on real life situations and experiences. Reality Shows are construct upon showing and exposing human emotions. In this aspect reality television has successfully portrayed an image that many viewers can now relate to. In reality the characters of reality television are somewhat like celebrities.There is no doubt, that reality television provides viewers with such e ntertainment that does not exemplify family values. In fact, reality television has influenced our society in different ways by showing loud and rambunctious behavior. These types of shows exhibit plenty of profanity, sexual content, force out and drugs. In todays age, nearly every home has at least one television, it is easy imagine how the idea of what is real and what is fiction can become misinterpreted.The cultivation theory essentially holds that television viewing is a primary factor in cultivating a particular cultures beliefs some the everyday world (Infante, Rancer, & Womack, 1997). George Gerbner knew that television was becoming an important part of the average citizens life and suspected that it was quickly replacing the importance institutions like family, school, and church service in the enculturation process (Gerbner & Gross, 1976).In 1973 PBS released the first reality television show an unintentionally breathtaking series called An American Family. The show pr omoted a family, the Louds, who volunteered to let PBS film their lives for seven months. During the time the show was aired the Louds, faced marital breakup of the parents, Bill and Pat and the confession of their son fishgigs sexuality. Many American viewers enjoyed viewing this reality show, in spite of the family falling apart.Referencehttp//www.uky.edu/drlane/capstone/mass/cultivation.htm

Our founding Fathers had a vision in mind when writing the report to ensure every last(predicate) citizens of the United States were case-hardened affectly and fairly. The Constitution was also to place rules and guidelines in place so that not one person or government politician would have full control. It was to be a country for the citizens where they have a voice in what takes place and in the way it is managed. There were many items that influenced the Constitution and had a significance that contri furthered to it. Ill start with the Magna Carta.The Magna Carta was an English Charter that was issued in 1215. Its purpose was to limit government authority. It is considered one of the approximately important documents in the composition of democracy its influence is clearly seen in the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights. (GCU, 2012) The Magna Carta also represented several ideas, one in which is the significant innocent until proven guilty. Others allow right o f individuals to know the charges filed against them, right to judgment by peers before imprisonment, and right to be represented by an attorney. The Magna Carta is evident in the Constitution by the limiting of government authority. It was the founding Fathers purpose to not let any one person or political group have complete control. But, to include the citizens in the say of how things worked and were ran.Second, is the Mayflower Compact which was issued in 1620. It was the first off governing document that was passed because settlers agreed to abide by the rules of the government. It consisted of two essential elements it reveals the promise that America, as it develops, is to be built upon Christian principles and a government of law, not men. It enjoins upon the government to enact constitutionally equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most just and convenient for the general good of the people. (Digest, 1951) The Mayf lower Compact came about by the settlers coming over on the Mayflower, when they realized that the earlier settlers had failed when it came to guiding their developments. The settlers cherished to be successful in their developments and be fair to everyone by treating everyone equally.Its part to the Constitution is the Christian faith and the equality of all people. Without this, we may be treated differently by the amount of money we make or even because of our race. This ensured everyone the same opportunities in our country and rules to live by. Third, is the Declaration of Independence. It was passed in 1776 adapting resolutions of endorsing independence. It all started from the french and Indian War, the British Parliament wanted the colonists to pay for the war. The colonists however believed that they should not have to pay taxes in which they did not believe in. The colonists wanted to voice their concerns but were denied by the British Parliament. From this, came the r evolutionary cry No Taxation without Representation. This is when a committee of 5 was formed and the Declaration was formed.It declared all colonies free from the British Parliament and declared all colonies to be free and independent states. The most radical idea advanced by the American Revolutionaries was the proposition set forrard in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. (Mintz, 2012) Its contribution to the Constitution is the free and independent states along with the separation from British Parliament. Without this, we probably would not have our 50 different states. We would more than likely still be running and operating with the British Parliament as one big nation. This allowed colonists to be individualized, independent, and free to set their own government rules and regulations.Fourth, is the Articles of C onfederation. It was signed in 1777 and was the first governing document of the newly formed nation. This turned the colonies into a confederation. The articles explained individual states rights defined the rights of the central government and declared the Articles could only be changed with ratification of all state legislatures. (GCU, 2012) It also specifies how the national government is to operate. Under the Articles the states were more powerful than the central government, which consisted only of a Congress. Each state had one vote in Congress, with that vote determined by a delegation of from two to seven representatives.Though the Congress had the authority to regulate foreign affairs, wage war, and maintain the postal system, it had no power to levy and collect taxes or regulate interstate commerce. (West 2005) The contribution to the Constitution is defining the rules and regulations of the government. Without rules and regulations, many states would have been run not equ al or even without any rules. This would cause many states to be a mess and not have regulation. These articles compete a huge part in how our government runs today by giving different members of Congress votes and not having a certain group where they can run everything.Last, is the Federalist Papers. These were papers written among 1787 and 1788 arguing for the ratification of the Constitution that was published in newspapers. There were approximately 85 papers written by John Jay, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. entirely three of the authors drew from their extensive experience in national politics and the military and diplomatic struggle for independence.Their purpose was to clarify and explain the provisions of the Constitution, exposit its benefits over the existing system of government under the articles of confederation. (West, 2005) There were 3 influential articles that included strong republic and addresses how to guard against factions, establishes separation of powers and introduces the idea of checks and balances, and verbalised opposition to what eventually became the Bill of Rights. The contribution to the Constitution is probably the most influential from these papers. All of them were influential and resulted in the 9th and 10th amendments to the Constitution.There were many factors that played a major role in the development of our nations Constitution. These listed above were only a few but many were the most influential. I personally am thankful to live in a country that has rules and guidelines and allows us as citizens to be a part of the voting process. It is our right to vote and have a say in how we think our money should spent or how things are ran in our state. Regardless of which law passes or fails, we are all treated equally in the eyes of the law and are all here because our founding Fathers took the time out to create a document that laid out guidelines for us and many generations to come to live by. In the words of Washington, Let us Raise to the standard to which the wise and honest can repair the rest is in the hands of God. (Digest, 1951)REFERENCESGrand Canyon University. (2012).

Lewis once said, l believe In Charlatanry as I believe that the solarize has risen not only because I see It, hardly because by It I see boththing else. I think this Is an extremely insightful quote to break by, especi everyy if you are of the Catholic or Christian religious belief. I think what Lewis is trying to say is that we all know the sun exists because we see it rise every mean solar day, but because of the sun it is possible to see everything else on Earth. This relates back to Christianity because for Lewis he is saying that he can look t life in a different way than some people because he has the opinion of God inside him.For example, I know some maven who is completely immersed in their Catholic assent and to me they honestly seem to enjoy life every single day. Sure they have some bad days when some things dont go right, but eventide then they say that God has a reason for what has happened. When I think back to my friend and how they observe about life, and t hen compare that to my own faith and feelings, there Is a complete difference. I am not proud to say this but I bequeath I have lost my faith throughout the years and moieties life Is Just a bleak thing I have to go through some days.After reading this quote I seriously considered how my life would be different if I had full faith in the Lord, and I think it would be more optimistic than how I feel now. There is a show on television called 19 kids and counting and they are a very religious family who puts the Lord before anything else. One day while watching the show the older children were talking about a topic and then they proceeded to say how if you cant be happy even with God, how can you be happy without him? This is an other(a) statement I believe makes sense and goes along with Lewis quote.For many, God is the one who lights the path for them to walk, and I really do believe existence religious makes a person happier. Some may say that it Is the congregation of people and friends that gather In a church and share the same beliefs, but I think It Is the knowing and believing In a higher power always being there and never leaving your side that makes one happier than someone who does not believe in God. Christianity affects ones worldview significantly. A worldview is the framework from which we view reality and make sense of life and the world. Its any ideology, philosophy, theology, movement or organized religion that provides an overarching approach to understanding God, the world and mans relations to God and the world, says David Nobel, author of Understanding the Times. For example, a 2-year-old is egocentric and believes theyre the center of his or her own world, a secular military manitarian believes that the material world is all that exists, and a Buddhist believes he can be liberated from suffering by self-purification. Someone with a biblical worldview believes their pristine reason for existence Is to love and serve God.Whether they know It or not, every person has some type of worldview. A personal worldview Is a combination of all you believe to be true, and what you believe becomes the driving force behind every emotion, decision and action. Therefore, it affects your response to every area of life from everything. A biblical worldview is establish on the Word of God. When you believe the Bible is entirely true, then you allow it to be the foundation of everything you say and o. There is a problem though apolitical worldview ideas bombard us constantly from television, film, music, newspapers, magazines, and books.For example, most Christians would agree with 1 Thessalonians 43 and other Scriptures that command us to avoid sexual impurity, but how oftentimes do Christians fall into lust or premarital sexual sin? If we dont really believe the truth of God and live it, then our witness will be confusing and misleading. Most of us go through life not recognizing that our personal worldviews have been deeply affec ted by the world. Through the media and other influences, the secularists American view of history, law, politics, science, God and man affects our thinking more than we realize.We then are taken captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ (Colombians 28). However, by learning, applying and trusting Gods truths in all area of our lives -? whether its watching a movie, divergence to school, raising a family or working at the office -? we can egging to develop a deep comprehensive faith that will stand against the repulsiveness of our cultures nonpolitical ideas (Wordsmith. Mom). If we embrace more of Gods worldview and trust it with unquestioning faith, then we begin to make the right decisions and form the appropriate responses to questions on abortion, same-sex marriage, cloning, stem-cell research and even media choices. Because, in the end, it is our decisions and actions that rev eal what we really believe. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

John and Alice, for your exemplary performance in your year-end examinations, we are going for a little family holiday. said James Brown, make of John and Alice Brown. Where? Where? asked the children excitedly. Were going to a place that offers unlimited peace and quiet. That place is Bermuda. And while youre on that point James spoke at duration about proper etiquette and how it would affect them. Although it was quite boring, it would piss benefitted them if they had paid attention instead of playing rock-paper-scissors.On the ship en route to Bermuda, the children lived like there was no tomorrow. They piled food on their plates with a lot of everything they liked. Sure enough, they couldnt finish it. So they quietly poured the remnants of their unfinished food overboard. As they did this, a clipping of their fathers speech came back to them. When there is a lot of food, take only a little. If it isnt enough, go back and take round more. This is much mitigate than taking a lot and then throwing it away just because you push asidet finish it. Its not like we are going to do this for the rest of our lives, reasoned the children. Its only the first time. Dad doesnt have to know. Sadly, this wasnt the only misconduct the children committed. They also took things offered by polite stewards and stewardesses without saying thank you. Laden with food and drink, the children were too lazy to properly dispose of the plastic wrappers from their snacks. Instead, the two irresponsible children burned those wrappers. Dont ever burn things, especially plastic. Plastic is extremely toxic.Whatever you do, dont burn it. Were actually saving space and helping people, estimation the children. Dont they burn plastic in incinerators? If we dont burn them, these plastic is going to end up in landfills, which take up a lot of space. Yes, were doing a dear(p) thing. And soon after doing this, the two children fell asleep. The two children soon woke up to terrible h eat on the island. Hey Why is the sun so hot all of a sudden? , wondered the children. Being clever children, they had the answer in no time. Its global thaw said Alice. The ozone is thinning because people burn plastic and.. she stopped in mid-sentence. Oh dear, we just did it on the ship said John. Oh, never mind John. Whats through is done. Why dont we explore the island? On their way, they saw a small lake full of dead fish. Curious, the two children decided to investigate. The pond was saturated with frill It wasnt only rubbish but with bits of rotten food. Look at the rubbish Wasnt that the fried chicken we couldnt finish? And arent those the bits of salad? What have we done? Shortly after that, they saw some gulls.Instead of white and grey, the gulls were black and some kind of liquid dripped from them. As the children came closer for a better look, they saw that the patch of sea that the gulls have previously risen from had a thick layer of oil above it. It was the las t straw for the two. Enough We cant take anymore cried the children. From now on, well follow our fathers advice and never be wasteful And that was when they woke up. Still thinking the terrible discovery was true, the children ran to their parents, confessed and apologized to them. What nonsensical said James Brown. We are still on the ship, not an island You two must be having a bad dream. Something to do with your overeating, I shouldnt wonder. merely it was a very good thing you two summoned up the courage to own up. Remember your dream so that you will never go wrong. And so the Brown siblings learnt their lesson and changed their mindset towards the environment once and for all. Mother Nature is not infinite, the children learnt. Although she may be all-powerful, she still needs help. Let us take good care of the environment.

Being iodine of the nigh soci bothy developed and multicultural countries in the world everyone probably sees Canada as a Utopian country. Unfortunately Canada isnt as perfect as everyone thinks it is, and a major persisting issue is racialism. Being a multicultural there ar human beingy minorities and this usually results in racism, isolation, and unequal treatment amongst everyone. Unfortunately, racism gets more unspoilt and turns into hate crime and that is a federal offence.Racisms not only affects adults at work or on the streets but also affects electric razorren in schools and dayc argon centers as kids ar treated differently based on their uncase color. We can all imagine that racism has disappeared but in reality we know that it bequeath never leave. Racism is defined as a belief that inherent differences among human race, does that mean that all of us throw off to be one race in order to eliminate racism in our society? Practically, it is impossible to get rid of racial prejudice.Racism is viridity amongst the streets of Canada and especially Toronto as we are the most diverse city in Canada. Racism occurs everywhere from schools to workplaces. Even where I volunteer the quat who runs is racist, he is known for only hiring white people as his staff and Hispanic people to do the cleaning. Everywhere we turn we see racism. When a lady crosses the street and sees a person of African caudex she will either take a different road or being to walk really fast. This is because we are all racist by habit now. We have been influenced by movies, TV shows, and the media.We are ever so bombarded by 20-year old scurrilous male wanted for robbery or 32 year-old male black wanted for murder in the media that everyone has come to a conclusion that all black people are criminals and that is wrong. To make matters worth parents will tell their kids not to hang out with African people and when that one African child gets secluded he will do anything to be part of the group and this is when the child starts to befriend the wrong people and he is now in a gang.He gets into unnecessary bickering and now is the top news on CTV and all of this was because one arent was racist and told his/her child not to be friends with a black person. A more severe case of racism is hate crime, and that is very common in Canada. Statistics Canada has released the numbers and it states that there have been 1473 hate-motivated crimes in 2009 and 52% was because of race/ethnicity, which means there have been 766 racist crimes. To be more specific almost 300 incidents were intended toward black people, 95 towards southwest Asians, and 75 towards Arabs. Even in the 21st century we are still witnessing violence toward people because of their skin color.Just by viewing these statistics you can conclude that Canada is still racist. To be more precise Canada has change magnitude in hate crimes toward race from 2006-2009 by roughly 61%. Racial discrimination must burst immediately it is not progressing society forward it is pulling us backward. At the end of the day we are all humans and we are all one race and this prejudice towards others because of the color of their skin is barbaric. Canada is most definitely still racist, we might seem like the perfect country to the eyes of others but we are far from a utopian society.Regardless of the fact you are Caucasian, African, Sri Lankan, Arab, and Chinese we are all humans, and racism just degrades us. Abraham Joshua Herschel, a Polish-born American rabbi once said Racism is mans gravest threat to man the maximum hatred for a minimum of reason. Racism was once the reason WWII had started and it was the reason we went through a terrifying era of slaves in North America. Both Canada and the global society are frequently video display racial animosity and this should not be tolerated.

Now you can show everyone that electrical get-up-and-go or electrical energy can be made from air and acetum. After all, vinegar are freely forthcoming everywhere. Battery is a device that converts chemical energy directly to electrical energy.It consists of a number of galvanising cellular telephones distributively voltaic cell consists of twohalf-cellsconnected in series by a conductive electrolyte containing anions and cations. unitary half-cell includes electrolyte and the electrode to whichanions(negatively aerated ions) migrate, i. e. , theanodeor negative electrode the other half-cell includes electrolyte and the electrode to whichcations(positively charged ions) migrate, i. e. , the cathodeor po sitive electrode. In theredox response that powers the outpouring, cations are reduced (electrons are added) at the cathode, while anions are oxidized (electrons are removed) at the anode.The electrodes do non touch each other but are electrically connected by theelectrolyte. nigh cells drill two half-cells with different electrolytes. A separator between half-cells allows ions to flow, but prevents mixing of the electrolytes. Vinegar is a termination of acetic acidulated and water. Acids donate H+ ions into a solution. The concentration of these ions is what determines whether a solution is a fuddled electrolyte (conductor) or a weak one. Since vinegar has a low concentration of acetic acid(about 5%) it only(prenominal) has a pH of only 2. 4 and so is a weak acid.Review of Related literary works match to Doctor Sergey stated that vinegar eat up lots of electronic magnet cells that can because electrical energy depart humiliated megabytes. During the experimentation, the researchers found out that 4 pieces of calamodins are enough to light a definite bulb. It is withal found out that a coin which is hot copper and copper fits are not the catch materials in making the experiment. Instead of the materials mentioned use the copper coin and alligator wire. The galvanized smash up as well affair in lightning the bulb. Use the 1. inches galvanized peg down to balanced the flow of the current. Statement of the Problem The researchers aimed to answer the future(a) 1. How practically summate of vinegar that can deport a leak the light emitting diode bulb light? 2. wad vinegar bean alternative stamp battery?

Now you can show everyone that electrical energy or electricity can be made from air and vinegar. After all, vinegar are freely available everywhere. Battery is a device that converts chemical energy directly to electrical energy.It consists of a number of voltaic cells each voltaic cell consists of twohalf-cellsconnected in series by a conductive electrolyte containing anions and cations. One half-cell includes electrolyte and the electrode to whichanions(negatively charged ions) migrate, i. e. , theanodeor negative electrode the other half-cell includes electrolyte and the electrode to whichcations(positively charged ions) migrate, i. e. , the cathodeor po sitive electrode. In theredoxreaction that powers the battery, cations are reduced (electrons are added) at the cathode, while anions are oxidized (electrons are removed) at the anode.The electrodes do not touch each other but are electrically connected by theelectrolyte. Some cells use two half-cells with different electrolytes. A separator between half-cells allows ions to flow, but prevents mixing of the electrolytes. Vinegar is a solution of acetic acid and water. Acids donate H+ ions into a solution. The concentration of these ions is what determines whether a solution is a strong electrolyte (conductor) or a weak one. Since vinegar has a low concentration of acetic acid(about 5%) it only has a pH of only 2. 4 and so is a weak acid.Review of Related Literature According to Doctor Sergey stated that vinegar have lots of electronic magnet cells that can because electricity will small megabytes. During the experimentation, the researchers found out that 4 pieces of calamodins are enough to light a certain bulb. It is also found out that a coin which is hot copper and copper wires are not the appropriate materials in making the experiment. Instead of the materials mentioned used the copper coin and alligator wire. The galvanized nail also matter in lightning the bulb. Use the 1. inches galvanized nail to balanced the flow of the current. Statement of the Problem The researchers aimed to answer the following 1. How much amount of vinegar that can make the light emitting diode bulb light? 2. Can vinegar bean alternative battery?

Being involved in my community wasnt a priority in my schedule, I in reality had overlooked the importance of really being involved in my community and the beneficial aspects that it impart have on me rather then I would have on my community. Community service latterly has be fill in a big consumption of my weekends, which have had multiple positive effects on me and just has it brought hope and happiness to people, but it also lead to spiritual and personal growth. It is an pay back that cannot be bought with every amount of money. A volunteer benefits himself or herself because they get to see how their contribution has made a difference. This experience contributes to personal development especially in areas such as self-fulfillment, self-confidence, and self-esteem that often flourish in the midst of volunteering experiences.The contributions that I have made to my community, volunteering countless hours at the local two general hours during weekends and summers has really impacted me as a person. I now am more involved with my community then ever through a club that I have joined at school (California learning foundation) and have started the year off by volunteering with AIDs walk Los Angeles and many more to come over the year. I now dont see volunteering as a sacrifice of my quantify rather an opportunity to become a better person through community outreach.

Religion and Irish nightclub Ireland has long been recognised as a country whose culture, laws and counseling of life be predominantly influenced by its heavy Catholic ethos. The move of both the civil partnerships bill and the divorce referendum, the growing number of non denominational educate together schools and the ready availability of contraception in recent years are all excellent examples of how our country is evolving to suffer on a par with our international counterparts.There can be no argueing that our generation are growing up in a much more diverse and open minded society that that of our parents. However, the arguably oppressive values of the Catholic Church are still widely enforced and adhered to in many aspects of our society. At the tender age of four it is thus that as a child nourishment in Ireland, one would be enrolled into a catholic national school.With educate together schools only speckled around the country, making up on 58 of the 3300 primary sch ools this is largely due to the fact that in that location is no other convinient or in fact possible option for parents. Having attended a catholic national school from 1996 until 2004, my experience of the teaching of religion was not one which explained to me the wide range of religions that reserve worldwide, or indeed the possibility of choosing not to follow one. Class masses and visits from the parish priest were regular.The control that the Catholic Church has over what is and isnt taught in secondary school is however something I feel to be a more serious and pressing issue. It is only in recent years that health genteelness classes have been allowed to address the issue of contraception with teens, an issue of the upmost importance concerning health. It is still required that teachers put to work it clear that the roman catholic church does not allow protected excite or sex prior to marriage.The divorce referendum which took place in Ireland in 1995 was subject to wor ldwide media coverage. Having been so famous for its gem solid catholic values, the idea that we would allow the religious sacrament of marriage to be reverted was one that not everyone could grasp. The rejection of this bill in the tenth amendment of the constitution in 1986 made this all the more controversial. This was not supple to forthside of our borders either with the bill passing by a miniscule margin of only 9,114 votes out of 1. 62 million cast, 50. 3% for versus 49. % against. The passing of this bill was enormous a clear indication of skillful how many people were becoming increasingly comfortable with turning away from their catholic upbringing in favour of what they themselves considered to be a pro-people constitution. So whilst there can be no doubt that Ireland has enter on in leaps and bounds in recent time, we still have a long way to if we are truly determined to instil an open mind upon this country, making sure that we allow our world to grow and devel op in its own right, Independent from.

A hero is a person, whom no matter what the state of affairs is, always seems to be able to approach situation with a fearless and courageous attitude, and can is often admired by many. The novel Daisy Miller by Henry James is a fictional business relationship about the action of an American girl in Europe and the situations that she experiences. Daisy reacts to these situations with a fearless and courageous approach. Her actions seem to affect e very character in the story and are misperceived by many.Daisy consistently had the courage to stand up to the other Americans, the characters who adapted to the European refining, hitherto though they continued to pressure her, and prevai conduct by not conforming to European society. Daisy is a hero in this story because of the way she approached and handled situations. A major conflict in the story is the clash of American culture and European culture. Daisy is constantly thrown into situations where she is pressured to conform to s ome traditional European way of doing things.Daisy does not allow this pressure get to her. She instead continues to act without fear of what might happen to her. The text shows many examples of this. A major cultural conflict that happened in the novel is when Daisy is walking around the Pinchio with Mr. Winterbourne and Mr. Giovanelli. Mrs. Walker comes up in her carriage and begs Daisy to get in because of what her reputation might become since she was walking around with two custody ( ). After Daisy refuses, Mrs. Walker says should you prefer world thought a very reckless girls? and even gets Mr Winterbourne winding by having him expire his opinion which lined up with Mrs. Walkers( ). After examining the text, the reader sees that Daisy responds with a very fearless and courageous way, which in a way can also be compared to a mention from Emersons Self Reliance, to be great, is to be misunderstood. If this is improper, Mrs Walker, she persued, then I am all improper, and you must give me up is a quote that beautifully illustrates Daisys heroic personally by not being intimidated from the pressures of society.Another conflict in the novel was that at certain places at certain times, the chances of get malaria were very high. While many of the locals decided to stay away from these areas, Daisy chose to not live fear. This fearlessness that Daisy displayed, led to Mr. Winterbourne confronting her and Mr. Giovanelli at the coliseum late at night about her catching the Roman fever (). Giovanelli responded to Winterbourne by locution he informed Daisy it was a grave indiscretion which Daisy responded with prudence ().Even now that Daisy was staidly warned about the disease she still showed no fear and showed how she could be an inspiration to other women by saying she had a lovely time seeing the coliseum by moonlight and if she felt any danger she would take some pills (). I dont care, said Daisy in a little hostile tone, whether I have Roman fever or not shows how Daisy would not let fear enjoin her life( ). Daisy Miller was a hero because of the fearless qualities that she displayed in the novel Daisy Miller.She may not display the customary stereotypes of other fictionalized heroes such as flying or x-ray vision, but she does have influence on bulk, especially women, on how they can act regardless of what culture they are from. This view on life is very important because it shows young women, that they are empowered to handle situations anyway they like. Even when she died, many people showed up to her funeral and admired her. Giovanelli even stated at her funeral that out of all the women she was the most innocent ( ).
