THE DEVELOPING CHILD As a child develops throughout his or her life, there are distinct stages, which are milestones in which they are observed as developmental stages. The stages are broken down into certain age groups, one of which is early childhood. Early childhood is the ages between two and six. I will focus on the ages of three to four. With three and four year old children, there are many different development stages. Those stages are physical, the outside appearance of the development,

The Effect of The McGufey Readers had on Homogenizing America "McGuffey\'s Homogenized America" The McGuffey Readers helped to shape the young minds of millions of children. Used as a learning tool, they could be found in school rooms everywhere, especially in the Midwest. For some people, they were the only source of reading material available. They were very widely published, second only to the King James Bible in printed volumes. About 50 to 100 million copies were published between 1836 and
The Emperors of Chocolate In The Emperors of Chocolate, Joël Glenn Brenner reveals the bitter legal and marketing fights, espionage, deception, obsessive secrecy, and personality clashes that dominate Hershey and Mars - and the candy industry as a whole. Milton Hershey and Forrest Mars Sr. were both great business men. They ran their businesses in a high degree of opposition. They each had their own strong and weak point in the companies. Many national and local corporations have modeled their o
The fall of western man The Fall of Western Civilization A new revolution is required-- a Western revolution. The values of Western civilization are lost, it\'s morals murdered and it\'s society turned sour. Something has changed. Currently, man is absorbing empty, worthless material. This idea of "pop culture" has been injected into the Western man. His values and morals have depreciated greatly. He has entered a black hole filled with expendable amounts of junk. In it, he is so severely sedate
The Iliad By Homer He Wore Honor on His Sleeve The poem The Iliad written by Homer is the story of the tenth year of the Trojan War. It depicts the nobility and honor given to a slayer in warfare and the humanity that warriors show to the slain. It also illustrates the Greek code of ethics, that was in that time honor. Warriors fought for honor to insure a reputation that would outlive them. Honor is given to the great warriors through gifts, rank, and valor. Ultimately, a hero\'s honor depended
The Joys Of Contriving Literature WHy ayn rands theories dont hold water No thinker, perhaps, has had more influence upon contemporary libertarians than the novelist and non-academic philosopher, Ayn Rand. For that reason alone, she deserves attention; however, many of her arguments have been misunderstood, misrepresented or ignored. As George Smith has commented, “there has appeared relatively little in the way of competent reflection of Ayn Rand as a philosopher. Accounts…written by [her] admi
the literary style of TS Eliot The Literary Style of T.S. Eliot A writer’s interpretation of the world strictly influences his literary performance. T.S. Eliot literary style was exceedingly melancholy because the era that he was living in was filled with anguish and depression. His works of literature vary from his use of traditional dramatic structure to mythical method. Eliot\'s perception of life as nothing more than a struggle is expressed in his literary works by his use of realistic theme
The Medias Effect on Underage Alcohol Abuse Barbara Duskey John Howrey English 112, Section 096 March 27, 2000 The Effects of the Media on Underage Alcohol Abuse It is a major aspect of our culture and many others, being used in religious ceremonies, for celebration, and during common socialization, its presence is seen everywhere. “It” is alcohol. Alcohol is the broad term that society gives to such drinks as wine, beer, and hard liquor because it contains ethyl alcohol. Despite the fact that i
The right not to summer Taking a person’s life is a serious matter. Some people think that a person who is in great pain should be made to suffer through it. People with serious illnesses, however, should be able to decide if they want to live through the pain of a slow agonizing death or die a quick, painless death. Euthanasia should not be deemed a crime. If a person is in great pain and is going to die soon, that person should have the right to die without enduring pain if he/she chooses to.
The Wind Are You A Man or A Monkey ? A Disturbing Movement of Anti-Intellectualism in America “It’s more valuable to see with the eye in one’s heart, rather than see with the eye in one’s head.” The epic crusade of science and technology versus theology, both religions of sorts dating back in time more years than any of us can begin to comprehend. Maybe that is why, as a whole, we have such a difficult time discerning between the two, or rather, why we fail to see clearly the true meaning that l
The World of Photography The world of photography, especially in journalism, is a complex weave of structure, sight, composition, light, and texture. So there is no wonder that some photographers must face a very important decisionstaging versus fate. While both illustrate the skills involved in taking pictures, these directors must often choose their style (fate/staged) for both shots, no matter how hard one tries, will still be able to be broken down. Meaning, many viewers will deconstruct
this and that When I first constructed this web site three years ago, I had no idea how much controversy it would cause. Honestly, I just wanted to post some of my own writing here. Soon, hundreds of students were e-mailing me their essays to add to my list. Along with essays, I received tons of mail from students who said they really appreciated my site, and that it helped them more than I could ever know. I received no complaints from teachers, just praise from students. I suspected students w

Tobacco Companies and thier ethics The Ethnicity of Tobacco Companies Tobacco Companies actively market a highly addictive and lethal product, and have done so for many years here in the United States and abroad. Their lack of ethics and social responsibility in the business world are apparent in documentation brought to light during lawsuits against them in recent years. The desire for profit and expansion, rather than a concern for societal health, has dictated big tobacco company operations.
training The History of Kodokan Judo Judo had its origin in the ancient Japanese art of jujutsu, a system of hand-to-hand combat. The bushi of feudal Japan (samurai) are usually credited for developing jujutsu (at their time the art was known as Yoroi kumi-uchi, a grappling method for fighters fully clad in Japanese armor). However, the Nihon Shoki (the Chronicle of the Japanese nation) documents public unarmed competitions (hikara-kurabe) dating back to 230 B.C. Jujutsu has been known by severa
Trojan Condoms Get It On? Advertisements use misleading words and sexual content to sell products. A majority of these advertisements are targeted towards teenagers, which lowers the standards and basic morals of society and creates more problems than any product can solve. Trojan Condoms deliberately target their advertisements towards teenagers and college students by suggesting sexual intercourse simply for pleasure. Their advertisement campaign centers on the physical pleasures of sexual int
true human nature True Human Nature Reading Lord of the Flies, one gets quite an impression of Golding’s view on human nature. Whether this view is right or wrong, true or not, is a point to be debated. This image Golding paints for the reader, that of humans being inherently bad, is a perspective not all people share. This opinion, in fact, is a point that many have disagreed with when reading his work. There are many instances throughout Lord of the Flies that state Golding’s opinion suggestin
TV Censorship During the past quarter century, abortion has joined race and war as one of the most debatable subject of controversy in the United States. It discusses human interaction where ethics, emotions and law come together. Abortion poses a moral, social and medical dilemma that faces many individuals to create an emotional and violent atmosphere. There are many points of view toward abortion but the only two fine distinctions are "pro-choice" and "pro-life". A pro-choicer would feel that
Unleashing Human Potential Unleashing Human Potential The essence of studia humanitatis is akin to that of the Renaissance in general. The beginning of studies in the humane arts was in many ways a new birth of education, thinking and social structure, but it was also a rebirth of the lost enlightenment of antiquity. The idea was to educate from classical works, which were much lost in the Dark Ages, but also to educate in a way never before seen or attempted. The combination of physical and men
utilitarianism Mill In Utilitarianism, J.S. Mill was trying to show that "actions and institutions should increase the overall amount of happiness in the world" , and stressed the importance of utilitarianism as the first principle in ethics, to which any ambiguities with second principles such as \'do not kill\' may appeal. In this discussion, it is first of all necessary to examine what Mill meant by each of these statements in isolation, before going on to explore how he attempts to reconcile
Verbal Bullets Verbal Bullets Most people pay attention to the apparent violence that we see on the six o’clock news. Here atrocities such as death, rape, and war are brought to our awareness and displayed in front of us, but the less visible violence is never shown. A news brief about the father who is constantly yelling at his son will never take place. This type of verbal violence is not visibly seen like physical abuse, and that is why there is much controversy over its ambiguity. Some argue
wage differences as robert hall Wage Differences at Robert Hall I. Problem The Robert Hall Clothes, Inc. in Wilmington, Delaware are paying men and women different wages for essentially the same job. This is morally wrong because it is gender discrimination. II. Analysis A. The management of Robert Hall learned in 1973 that it was entirely legal for them to pay male salespersons more than female salespersons. Management feels that it is okay to pay women clerks less, because the commodities that

What is Shin Buddhism Shin Buddhism was the creation of Shinran Shonin, who lived in Japan around 800 years ago. He saw, as did Buddha, that what stands in the way of our awakening to the Dharma is really only us. Specifically, it is our ego, or that illusion we have that we are a fixed and separate entity apart from everything else. Thus, Shin Buddhism starts by getting us to see our egocentric, arrogant and self-centered nature. Shin Buddhism "attacks" our ego-self. When we awaken to the falla
Whistleblowing WhistleBlowing Whistle blowing is informing on illegal and unethical practices in the work place is becoming increasingly common as employees speak out about their ethical concerns at work. It can have disastrous consequences for the individual, as well as threatening the survival of the organization that is being complained about. This paper aims to provide a balanced approach to this topic, which has generated much controversy and debate. I would like to first explain what whist
Whos Who Have you ever heard the saying, “no two people are alike”? Well what if that statement was to be made false? Imagine you are walking down the street and you accidentally bump into some body and you look up to you realize that you are apologizing to yourself. How would you feel if you were looking at yourself with no mirror? If we leave it up to the government you could very well be put into that situation. Is cloning ethical or unethical? I believe that cloning is unethical and should b
Why the H is Everything Censored Have you ever sat down on a Wednesday night with a hot buttery bowl of popcorn and a cold soda to watch your favorite movie in its television debut? Watching closely with anticipation you prepare yourself for the great action and drama that captured your imagination when you originally saw it in the theater, only to find that every swear word and potentially offending scene has been dubbed over or removed. Don\'t you love it when badly mimicked mouth movements an
Why the Martin Luther King Jr Holiday Should Be Repealed Removing the King\'s Crown Introduction It is generally believed that Martin Luther King, Jr., was an intelligent African-American who promoted harmony between the races. Numerous books-all of which talk about his deeds of valor to promote good-will between both blacks and whites during a time when riots and strife regularly occurred in America-have been written about his life. He is generally regarded as a man of ethics, a man who fought
Women military issue By: Jery Carr In this report, I will present the information I\'ve discovered concerning whether allowing women to serve in combat units will reduce a units effectiveness. Women in today\'s military serve in more jobs and constitute the largest percent of women in the military they ever have. Four years ago women only made up 12 percent of the military, this has climbed from 1.6 percent in 1973 (Armed Forces and Society, 1996, p. 17). They also hold more jobs than ever befor
Work Ethics November 5, 1999 English 5 Mrs. Hawkins In the book, How to Tell When You’re Tired, Reg Theriault discussed the various aspects of working and how they impact different kinds of people. In chapter six Theriault specifically focuses on the relationship between younger and older workers. _________Although he states that older workers accept work as their fate, younger workers have their heads stuck in dream clouds and education is viewed as the vaccination against them he implies somet
youth and values BIBLIOYouth and Values In an attempt to challenge societal values, youth cultures, in the form of rebellion, act and dress radically and form groups in protest. These dissident actions against the structure of existing society promotes the beginning of new small groups which reflect their own rules, structures, class, gender and ethnic ideologies. So, the youth culture, in challenging societal values, at the same time is reflecting them. In comparing Margaret Mead\'s young adult
One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest Randle Patrick McMurphy, the main character in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, is the perfect example of a hero. He is committed to a mental institution after faking insanity to get out of a work camp. From the beginning of his presence on the ward, things start to change. He brings in laughter, gambling, profanity and he begins to get the other patients to open up. All of this, however, clashes with the head nurse, Nurse Ratched,
star trek INTRODUCTION: Television programs provide one of the most popular forms of entertainment today. From The Simpsons to The X-Files, television shows amuse, shock, sadden, and excite us by turns. Television does more, however, than simply entertain. Television shows are cultural products, and as such, they reflect, reinforce, and challenge cultural ideas. It acts as a mirror and a model for society. In examining and understanding those cultural messages and popular appeal of certain telev
Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson: Pushing the 1st Amendment Marilyn Manson is a name that has been a thorn in the side of society as a moral and ethical issue for the parents and kids of the generation “X”. He is one of the most controversial artists in the world today, one who chooses to express himself in a way that provokes in the most extreme methods possible. His methods are bizarre and shunned by most of society, as it cannot fathom what he is trying to accomplish. However, further research i
American Heroes John Wayne vs Billy the Kid John Wayne was viewed as the embodiment of America’s spirit. He and the fictitious land he roamed is, says Louis Owens, “The greatest dream of all,” (La Puerta 109). The man was always trying to correct some wrong, avenge a moral crime, save a damsel in distress, or capture the “bad guy.” He followed his own path, made his own rules, strove for personal justice, and always came out on top (and usually ‘got the girl’). Women wanted him; men wanted to be
Aphrodite and Hephaestus HEPHAESTUS AND APHRODITE APHRODITE Aphrodite is one of the most famous figures of Greek mythology. Because Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and sexual rapture,1 she was desired by nearly all of the Greek gods. Aphrodite was one of the twelve main gods on Mt. Olympus,2 and she was the most powerful goddess when it came to members of the opposite sex. THE BIRTH OF APHRODITE There are many origins to Aphrodite\'s birth. Some of them are: 1) She arose full-gr
conf FOUNDERS Confucius is the founder of Confucianism. The name "Confucius" is the Latin name for Kong Qiu-zi. Confucius was born in the village of Zou in the country of Lu in 551 BC. He was a poor descendant of a disposed noble family. As a child, he held fake temple rituals; as a young adult, quickly earned a reputation for fairness, politeness, and love of learning, and he was reputed to be quite tall. When he was 35 years old, Duke Zhao of Lu led his country to war, this was routed and fled
Greek Mythology1 No matter what you think the ancient Greeks were not on drugs. The people of ancient Greece had an extremely intelligent society. They had sophisticated architecture and a very high level of mathematics in their culture. These areas of life dealt with real things that could be controlled. When it came to natural phenomena the Greeks had certain explanations that might look eccentric now, but were reasonable 3000 years ago. In Greece’s history there are several themes that contri
homer the iliad Barbarians & Bureaucrats Mycenae No other texts in the Western imagination occupy as central a position in the self-definition of Western culture as the two epic poems of Homer, the Iliad and the Odyssey . They both concern the great defining moment of Greek culture, the Trojan War. Whether or not this war really occurred, or occurred as the Greeks narrate it, is a relatively unanswerable question. We know that such a war did take place around a city that quite likely was Troy, t
Odysseus1 Constructing the Hero Most individuals have a conceived concept of the ideals in which one highly values or desires to acquire. These ideals generally make up the mannerisms of a person one considers a true champion, whom can be existent or imaginary. This relatively immaculate code of ethics is also accompanied by achievements one finds admirable. This person is usually goes through a series of tests or hardships that prove their importance. This is what one considers a hero. Giving t

Absolutism vs Relativism Absolutism vs. Relativism Absolutism and relativism are two extreme ethical approaches to reality. While they are both valid and supported by facts, they are very contrasting in their views. Values are what a person cares about and thinks is worthwhile. For example, values can include life, love, religious faith, freedom, relationships, health, justice, education, family and many other things. Usually these values are what provides the passion in a person\'s life, and gi
Adler Overcrowded New York public schools’ authoritative figures relieved the congestion of the school by allowing more intelligent children to skip grades. On several occasions, Adler benefited from this policy. At age twelve and a half, he graduated from P.S. 186 in upper Manhattan and selected to attend De Witt Clinton High School, one of Manhattan\'s liberal arts secondary schools. During the first year of Adler\'s attendance, only one teacher really held his undivided attention. The instruc

Whether it is road rage experienced when driving during rush hour traffic or the feeling of outrage associated with learning of social injustices half way across the world, anger is a part of our daily practice.

animal rights Animal Rights Every year an estimated 25-35 million animals are subjected to painful and cruel testing in laboratory experiments. These experiments are performed to better the health of human beings by means of research. Many of these non-human animals are put through tests that you would not wish on your worst enemy. Many wonder if the means justify the ends in these particular experiments. Controversy occurs when there is a perception that the animals being used in the experiment
