Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action “The state shall not discriminate, or grant preferential treatment to any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.” The previous statement is the unedited text of the operative part of Proposition 209, the California Civil Rights Initiative (CCRI), that passed November fifth by a percentage of 54 to 46. Though the initiative does not actually mention affi

Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action Thesis: Although many people believe that affirmative Action is a form of racism, it is actually used to help minorities find employment in an otherwise racist world. “In the United States, equality is a recurring theme. It has flared into a fervent moral issue at crucial stages of American history: The revolutionary and Jacksonian Period, and the New Deal. In each era, the legitimacy of American society is challenged by some set of people unhappy with the degree of equality”
Commercial Vices
Commercial Vices
Commercial Vices The commercial vices are gambling, prostitution, and drugs. The appeals of the commercial vices are so strong and widespread that attempts to prohibit them in western countries have always failed. The evils of these vices are threefold: Those who practice them suffer, the criminals who sell them prosper, and the enforcement organizations are expensive, unsuccessful, and often corrupt. Two commercial vices have been accepted as unstoppable, but there evils have been minimized by

Fraud What is a Fraud? A fraud is when one party deceives or takes unfair advantage of another. A fraud includes any act, omission, or concealment, involving a breach of legal or equitable duty or trust, which results in disadvantage or injury to another. In a court of law it is necessary to prove that a false representation was made as a statement of fact, that was made with the intent to deceive and to induce the other party to act upon it. It must be proven that the person who has been defrau

Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action Affirmative Action as defined by the Meriam Webster's Dictionary is an active effort to improve the employment or educational opportunities of members of minority groups or women. In 1961 John F.Kennedy issued an executive order calling for Affirmative Action as a means to promote equal opportunity for racial minorities, in hiring by federal contractors. This was the first official use of the term by the Federal Government. Eight years later Nixon as President beefed up the Of

Margaret Hilda Thatcher Margaret Hilda Thatcher's overwhelming sense of self-confidence and ambition ruled her life from the time she was a small child in Grantham, though her Oxford years and during her early years in politics. It led her to become the first female Prime Minister of Great Britain, and also helped through her difficult political years as Attila the Hun. Britain's first female Prime Minister was born on October 13, 1925 in a small room over a grocer's shop in Grandham, England.

Yet as every second of the day passes, more and more of my money and yours is being allotted to this growing epidemic called welfare. The Personal Responsibility Act, signed by the President, was a monumental change in welfare as we know, or used to know it. The welfare system is still in need or more strict and stringent policy refor

Poverty is a lack of goods and services necessary to maintain a minima
Poverty is a lack of goods and services necessary to maintain a minimal adequate standard of living. The definition of the term adequate varies, however, with the general standard of living in a society and with public attitudes toward deprivation. No university accepted definition of basic needs exists because poverty is a relative concept. In poorer countries it means living at the brink of subsistence, while in our country few improvised families confront starvation, although many suffer fro

Sex Education: Does it Really Work? Forty percent of today's fourteen year old girls will become pregnant by the time they are nineteen (qtd. in The Effects 632). This statistic may indicate that the sex education programs in the United States are not controlling the effects of sex by teens. The United States has the highest teen pregnancy rate of developed countries (The Effects 632). I believe that the people of this nation need to look at the current sex education programs and see if

There are many problems facing today's society. One of the problems is the violent condition that surrounds the lives of children in America. We are awarded of the violence among our juveniles because we read, hear and see it. The newspapers, magazines, news media, and our neighborhoods testify the living proof of the chaos. Everyone tries to find explanations of the causes and consequences of street violence and other aspects of the turbulent lives of young people. Yet, the problem facing our

Why is violence becoming and everyday common happening in our society? When you flip on the tele and tune into the news, the highlight of every show is somehow directly related or connected to violence.

LABOR IN AMERICA By Ira Peck (Scholastic Inc.) The Industrial Revolution was dawning in the United States. At Lowell, Massachusetts, the construction of a big cotton mill began in 1821. It was the first of several that would be built there in the next 10 years. The machinery to spin and weave cotton into cloth would be driven by water power. All that the factory owners needed was a dependable supply of labor to tend the machines. As most jobs in cotton factories required neither great strength n

Motivation MOTIVATING EMPLOYEES I believe that every person is motivated about something; the challenge is to find out how to create a work environment that enables people to express that motivation at work. So how do you motivate employees? The answer to this question seems like is would be simple but it is actually quite complex. In order for employees to become and remain self-motivated, they need to have a reason. In fact, the word motivation means having a motive or reason. In my research I

1960’s FRQ After World War II, many beliefs and ideals were called into question in the United States. In particular, the span of years between 1954 and 1974 were years of doubt and turmoil. The conditions were ripe for a revolution. Socially, a counterculture was developed in opposition to a conformist mentality. Judicially, the Civil Rights Movement brought about changes in outdated laws that promoted racism and violence. Politically, however, things largely remained sung to the tune of conta

Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action Discrimination means to make distinctions on the basis of preference or prejudice[i]. Although many laws were established to fight discrimination affirmative action was created to help fix the damage that had been created by the oppression of certain races and sexes. When it came to hiring new employees in companies and the enrollment of students in college a lot of minorities were being discriminated against. Although slavery ended, in the 1960s there was still evidence of di

The word capital in capital punishment refers to a person's head. In the past, people were often executed by severing their head from their body. Today, in the U.S., most prisoners are murdered by lethal injection. Capital Punishment has been a major issue in today's society; seventy-f

Abortion Few problems in history have divided our people as deeply as the issue of abortion. Pro-Choice advocates fight to keep laws that legalize abortion. They say a woman's right to make that choice freely is fundamental. While, an equally passionate pro-life movement has proclaimed that abortion is the ultimate human rights issue. Each side is deeply convinced of the rightness and importance of its cause. Voices are raised, often heatedly; debates and demonstrations continue. Too often overl

For one to make a decision on where they stand on this issue it is imperative to look over the history, facts, and issues at hand. When looking over this information I would have to conclude that I support affirmative action. According to Marquita Sykes from the National Organization of Women, August, 1995 newsl

A military type boot camp was created to alter offenders’ behavior and deter them from any future criminal activity.

The Shock Incarceration Program meets those needs and at the same time meets its goals which are reduc

Teenage Homosexuality Of the many emotions a gay man or woman feel, perhaps the most powerfully pervasive is fear. The fear of being found out is real enough, but the worry does not end there. There also lurks the fear of being called names, being assaulted, perhaps even killed. For adults these fears are horrible enough. For a lesbian and gay teenager, who lack experience and life skills to cope with them, such fears can be overwhelming. Lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth face many problems as th

The media may portray the psychopath as a crazed serial killer - the stuff of nightmares and horror films - but the reality is chillingly different. Not all psychopaths are violent criminals and fewer still have a desire to eat you for dinner. Many are highly successful businessmen and women, lawyers, academics, politicians, doctors and teachers.

All of these angles are informed by the basic lens used here: what are meaningful concepts for social policy formation? It is dangerous to identify problems –
