Describe in detail the arguments presented by James Jackson and William Loughton Smith in support of slavery.

What were the proposals for gradual emancipation? According to Ellis, could gradual emancipation have been feasible? This would mean riding both sides on the argument of slavery.

Why did Washington decide to retire? Consider private, public, political concerns.

Western Studies Emphasizes on the Following Two. The first topic takes into account the Renaissance era and the artists produced during it where as the second focuses on how the British monarchy was established and what were the perils that were faced in establishing it.

This paper also highlights certain quotes. The Europeans regard the Renaissance as an era that completely transformed their feudal society of the middle ages into a society dominated by political institutions, in which education was pursued and liberty was the right of all the citizens.

This charismatic era gave birth to many philosophers, artists, scientists and thinkers who worked to present to their people a completely new perspective of life. Many artists concentrated upon human philosophy, which became the central movement during the Renaissance. Ray Kroc's organizational process of 'McDonaldization' and the birth of the American franchise One of the great ironies of McDonald's is that a company whose name is synonymous with standardization was actually quite a unique invention when it was born in the mind of the great innovator and entrepreneur Ray Kroc.

Kroc was so successful at patenting his formula for creating cheap, predictable burgers, fries and milkshakes that his company's golden arches became an icon of Americana. The word McDonaldization has come to refer to the extent to which "the principles of the fast-food restaurant are coming to dominate more and more sectors of American society as well as the rest of the world," in the words of sociologist George Ritzer Waters Rationalization, efficiency, predictability, calculability, and control, according to Ritzer, are…… [Read More].

Arafat's Images Examined Arafat's Origins. The est may even become addicted to you and your PLO Pacepa , 25 The above conversation occurred in the early Carter administration, although the Romanian dictator first began advising and consorting with Arafat in ibid, Ceau-escu was not a prophet.

Rather, he was just a shrewd dictatorial leader who knew how to use image, propaganda and the repetition of the same information over and over again until his viewpoint became the accepted one. In Pacepa's narrative, Ceau-escu and Arafat were very close. Arafat saw Ceau-escu as a model and this model set the tone for the next more than two decades of Arafat's leadership of the PLO after their secret March, meeting in Bucharest. This meeting is so very important to understanding the development and history of the PLO and the Palestinian Authority from Oslo to the leader's death in Carthage and Rome Comparing Carthage and Rome One of the greatest wars Rome ever fought was against Carthage -- and it was actually a war that happened three times.

Called the Punic Wars Punic another name for Phoenician -- the nationality of the men who founded Carthage , the contests revealed much about both nations, and created heroes and legends for all antiquity to marvel over.

This paper will compare and contrast the two civilizations of Rome and Carthage from the standpoint of "persons within the community," showing just how such persons helped both powers came to be and how they went on to fare when they both began to war with one another.

Beginnings Started near Tunis at around the end of the ninth century BC, Carthage took over the rule of "leader" amongst the colonies of Phoenicia nearly three hundred years later when in the sixth century BC Tyre…… [Read More].

Critics see this achievement as proceeding both from his destiny and his own actions. He is the son of the Trojan mortal, Anchises, and the goddess of beauty and love, Venus, and as such, enjoys special protection, while remaining mortal.

His most outstanding quality is his respect and fidelity to prophecy. Ever aware of his destiny and role in the founding of a nation, he always takes this into consideration in taking every action. This awareness and devotion to his noble destiny enable him to endure much suffering and difficulty, from the defeat at Troy to his final duel with Turnus in Italy. His ability and decision to keep his focus on that destiny give his the power to ward off the weakening effects of frustration…… [Read More].

Culture Behind Americans at War. American Way of War The history of the American Way of War is a transitional one, as Weigley shows in his landmark work of the same name. The strategy of war went from, under Washington, a small scale, elude and survive set of tactics practiced by what seem today to be relatively "quaint" militias, to -- in the 20th century -- a full-scale operation known as "total war.

The North eventually practiced "total war" against the Confederates when Sherman's campaign left utter destruction of civilian territory in its wake. The ancient Romans practiced it when, under the direction of Cato, they destroyed Carthage because its mere existence, they felt, posed a threat to their prosperity.

In the 20th century, however, "total war" received an enormous boost of technical support when the inventors of the atom…… [Read More]. Relationships of Family Members Who Work in. A significant percentage of the private sector is comprised of family business. Family business has its own dynamic propelled by a shared family history, personal values, and intimate knowledge of their own concerns amongst other factors. Given that the family operates harmoniously, they have an ease of communication, which propels their business, but, most importantly, they are unanimously committed to long-term goals and are highly motivated to succeed.

The harmonious family imbues the family business with shared objective and vibrancy enabling success. Conflict, on the other hand, has a tendency to creep into the business and, ultimately, dissolve that too.

As reverse, conflict, originated by business concerns, can dissolve the harmonious glue of the family structure. It is, therefore, important for both family and business, and, ultimately, for the importance…… [Read More].

Politics Money and Branding. Jamie arner takes the position that while politicians use branding techniques they learned in the commercial marketplace -- to basically drown out viewpoints that aren't their own -- some scholars insist that diverse, rational points-of-view should be allowed to be heard.

One of the key arguments in this article is that the dynamics that democracy depend on an open dialogue on important issues and concerns seem to be of little concern to "political elites and their consultants" arner, Moreover, those elite politicians that arner refers to prefer to use the power of the media and their propaganda to "crowd out" other voices so their own political agenda can dominate the airwaves.

Among the pivotal points that arner makes is that in response to the political branding techniques used by "elite politicians," there is now a push-back against that rhetoric and propaganda called "culture jamming" arner, Among the tactics…… [Read More]. Anthony the Great Why St. Anthony is recognized as the head of the monastic family.

His date of birth was in and somewhere in Egypt. His parents died when he was only sixteen years old. He remained to be the guardian of his younger sibling, Dious. Six months after the demise of his parents, he went to the church to hear the word of our lord. From the fortune his family left behind, he sold acres land that was fertile and the proceeds he gave the poor remaining with a little for taking care of his sister.

He left the sister to be taken care of by the community of virgins. This allowed him to be free and…… [Read More]. Important Events in Fredrick Douglass' Life. Abolitionist Frederick Douglass, one among the leading personalities in civil rights history, escaped a life of slavery and went on to become a social justice advocate; he is counted among prominent personalities like President Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, Susan rownell Anthony and William Lloyd Garrison.

The historic 13th Amendment was the fruit of Douglass' and others' efforts towards civil rights; but Douglass knew well that African-Americans had a long way to go in gaining complete freedom. Douglass, in , was sent away from the city, to Thomas Auld's plantation. Thomas Hugh Auld's brother sent Frederick to Edward Covey, the infamous "slave-driver and negro-breaker" who was known for crushing the resistance of any slave.

Here, Douglass was beaten severely. Once, the year-old Douglass retaliated, physically besting Covey; hereafter, he was never whipped again. In , Douglass got acquainted with William Lloyd Garrison a highly outspoken abolitionist and founder of abolitionist…… [Read More].

Even in the midst of the most violent clashes, secret talks were held between leaders of the PIA and the British State, with the political face of epublican beliefs Sinn Fein gaining popular support over the years and to some degree undermining the aims, objectives and capacity of the PIA to operate effectively O'Brien, ; Tonge, The PIA's strategic effectiveness, however, was also complicated by its own inability to overcome specific problematic features of its own organization -- such as the factors of security and territoriality.

Likewise, the British State had enacted a program of using informants and infiltrators to undermine the PIA from within. Niebuhr Christ and Culture. Niebuhr Material Niebuhr, H. Harper and Row, The author of Christ and Culture Richard Niebuhr is today largely remembered as one-half a famous pair of siblings.

Clare of Assisi Saint Clare of Assisi was not a feminist in the modern sense, but then again no such ideas existed at all in the 13th Century.

By all accounts, though, she was a formidable and powerful woman who was the first in history to found a religious order. In the society in which she was born, women were politically, socially and economically powerless, and quite literally the property of their fathers and husbands. This was a feudal, authoritarian and patriarchal society, and even aristocratic women like Clare and her friend St. Agnes of Prague were forced into arranged marriages by their fathers.

Indeed, both Clare and Agnes defied their fathers when they insisted on entering religious life as followers of St. Francis of Assisi, and Clare's family disowned her. She was not a political rebel or revolutionary, but she did have a utopian vision of society that was…… [Read More].

Universal Human Rights Federal Criminal. In addition, many human rights activists believe that the death penalty is a de facto violation of human rights, regardless of the guilt or innocence of the person to be executed and the nature of the crime committed by that person. However, the Bible clearly endorses the application of the death penalty. Moreover, the Bible endorses the use of the death penalty in areas where most of the modern world has determined its use to be inappropriate.

However, the ability to criticize and gain depth into a subject was the key factors involved in qualitative research. In order for qualitative research methods to be applied to qualitative research, these methods had to undergo some form of transformation to make them acceptable to the empirical mindset.

He argues that one cannot have criticism and validity at the same time. However, this is a difficult viewpoint to accept and if one examines the method to be employed in this research, the presence of validity and controls does not limit the ability to criticize the results.

Increasing validity and reliability in the qualitative research means the development of criteria on the data collection. This may be a hindrance in the traditional sociological setting, such as field…… [Read More]. Old Testament Genesis 1: The first, foundational book of the Old Testament, defining the relationship between the creator and the creation. It defines that God and one God alone is the creator of the world.

Defines the relationship of God to humanity. Humanity is lionized as superior to the other animals. Adam is given the task of naming all of the animals.

Eve is portrayed as coming 'from' Adam, suggesting an inferior position of women in the eyes of many readers in successive generations. Eve's sin of eating from the Tree of Knowledge is deemed greater because of her influence over Adam. Her condemnation to bear children as well as being expelled from the Garden of Eden after being tempted by the Serpent further underlines the inferior position of women in the eyes of many readers.

Protestants often read this first major narrative as defining Original…… [Read More]. America was finding its footing, Americans were finding their identity. The spark of revolution trickled down the vine where three men decided to take arms. One took arms by defending the country against the British and securing the role of president of a new country.

A second took pen and wrote to inspire the reluctant to declare independence from an unfair Britain. A third took brush and art to establish a painted history of the American revolution along with the first museums to showcase them in. Three notable figures, George Washington, Charles Willson Peale, and Thomas Paine became some of the most influential men of their time. George Washington was born on February 22, or February 11, and died December 14, He was alive during the time of the American evolution and played a pivotal role in America's victory over Great Britain.

He became the first President of the…… [Read More]. Persistence of Bonnie and Clyde. Bonnie and Clyde hat accounts for the persistence of the legend of Bonnie and Clyde? For two not particularly distinguished criminals from a bygone era in American history, the staying power in the collective consciousness of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker is nothing short of remarkable. In part, the media has played a substantial role, with the epochal Arthur Penn film having been succeeded in by a television miniseries about the duo and their gang.

I hope to demonstrate through an examination of the historical source material that the reason for Bonnie and Clyde's persistence is explainable in one single word: Although certain other aspects of their short career -- particularly their…… [Read More].

Women First Wave Susan B. She is the daughter of Alice Walker, who wrote the Color Purple. She took her mother's maiden name at the age of Rebecca graduated cum laude from Yale University in , and moved on to co-found the Third Wave Foundation.

She is considered to be one of the founding leaders of third-wave feminism. In addition to her contributing editorship for Ms. Her relationship with her mother has been strained because of various public indictments the younger Walker made against her. Nevertheless, some believe that Rebecca might not have been as famous or powerful today without her ties to the illustrious Alice Walker. Jennifer Baumgardner is a prominent voice for women and girls. She works as a writer, speaker and activist.

During , she worked as the youngest editor at Ms. Even "Porter Alexander, Lee's ordnance chief and one of the most perceptive contemporary observers of Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia, called his decision to stand at Antietam 'the greatest military blunder that Gen. Lee ever made'" Owens Historians are divided as to the real purpose behind the Maryland campaign, which seems like an "isolated maneuver, another manifestation of Lee's innate aggressiveness as a commander.

Some have gone so far as to suggest that Lee's forays into Union territory were undertaken primarily to maintain his claim on scarce Confederate resources that might have been used to greater strategic purpose in the est" Owens Thus, even if Lee acted unwisely, he was clearly 'in control,'…… [Read More]. Ethnic Entrepreneurship Entrepreneurship Entrepreneurship Studies.

Timmons in his study presents a three-dimensional model of practical application of a good idea: Comprehensive evaluation of the opportunity; Comprehensive evaluation of one's own expertise and inclination; and Comprehensive evaluation of the resources gathering process to maintain the launch of business venture.

Long and McMullan propose that application of a good idea depends on two processes; namely, elaboration and evaluation. Singh found that those entrepreneurs who spend more time studying the pros and cons of an idea before embarking on its application tend to set up fewer businesses than those who spend less time in the elaboration and evaluation phase. However, Singh points out that higher majority of successful entrepreneurs are those who spend more time in elaboration and evaluation.

Mormonism the Religious Faith of. According to the Mormon website, there are six key points that believers must adhere to in the Mormon Church: As recent events in the Middle East have clearly demonstrated, Facebook is more on the side of the politically disadvantaged and the poor as they have increasingly embraced Facebook and other social media while the governments in the region tried to ban them.

Many governments such as that of China do not allow Facebook primarily because they want to avert scenarios they have seen in the Middle East. Facebook revolutions It was in the wake of when Oscar Morales, a young man in Columbia, decided that he had had enough of FARC Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia , a Marxist group which routinely kidnaps people, keeping them as hostages for months or years, while many of the hostages die in captivity.

Angry and depressed by the actions of FARC, one night he turned to Facebook which he had been using to connect with his friends and high school classmates.

Sociology Prospectus How America Came. It also makes note of the fact that the census of marked the first time that it was possible for a respondent to choose more than one race. This article is particularly interesting as it speculates on a future when it is no longer possible to separate people into minorities on the basis of race, simply because of cross culturalism.

This short article states there is an automatic prejudice against Asians within the United tates, laughing at the idea of any kind of homogeneity of the Asian-Americans and referring to both near and far history in which Asians have been discriminated against in the United tates. The author deals with the stereotype of Asians as the "model minority" and decries the change of something once considered to be exotic into a "plain American pie" the author is strong…… [Read More].

Patrick Henry the Man Who Started the American evolution On December 1, a young relatively unknown lawyer stood in public for the first time and openly defended in court the rights of the American colonies to be free. He started his speech by stuttering and stammering, but that did not last long.

And when he was done speaking, cries of treason went up from the crowd, however, his argument was so persuasive, that the jury sided with him on the legal case. The young lawyer's name was Patrick Henry, and while he may have started his speech roughly, by the time he had finished speaking, he had become one of the founding fathers of the United States of America. Patrick Henry is not known as a great warrior, but while he did fight a few battles with muskets and cannons, words were his most effective weapons.

And his words,…… [Read More]. Hidden Revolution In his analysis of the American Revolution, Nash refers to the "enshrined, mythic form" the event has taken on in human consciousness Like the creation myths of religion, the story of the founding of the United States of America has become what Nash calls a "sacralized story" that nearly deifies the founding fathers Taught to children in schools and propagated beyond the borders of the Untied States, this version of the American Revolution in which a unified group of colonists rose up together against the mean British tyrants is little more than a "fable," Nash The real story behind the American Revolution is far more complex and nuanced, testimony to the already diverse and heterogeneous population dwelling throughout the colonies.

The story skips over the most dramatic part, because of its disputability, to which it will return later. Hamilton is hit with one of two shots fired. The wound is fatal and both Dr. Hosack and Hamilton know it.

Burr is escorted off the scene by Van Ness to protect him legally, though he wants to aid Hamilton. The funeral in two days is a very big event in the city. The people and media came to a consensus that Burr murdered Hamilton in cold blood. They portray him as an awful criminal and completely destroy his political career.

The four or five seconds that were skipped are still highly debated. The Hamiltonian story is that Burr fired first, Hamilton who was hit instinctively flinched and fired into the air. The Hamiltonian version, though, which almost certainly was wrong, would dominate the history books at the time. But why had Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel? On June 18, there a verbal exchange between Hamilton and Burr, which was started by the latter party.

Burr called attention to an article published in the Albany Register that reminded people of how Hamilton insulted Burr a few years earlier. It is not known what Hamilton said about Burr, though.
