Ã¢â¬Å"Man is a wolf to man.Ã¢â¬ This Latin proverb starts the reader on a harrowing journey into the disturbing world of human trafficking. John Bowe speaks to the typical American as he investigates the often hidden and dangerous side of globalization. Humans have a natural desire to get ahead in life, even if sometimes others have to suffer as a result. This attitude is the catalyst for what is known as modern day slavery. The author sums up his book perfectly when he says, Ã¢â¬Å"We all seek control. Control equals power. Power corrupts. Corruption makes us blind, tyrannical and desperate to justify our behavior.Ã¢â¬ Indeed he proves that statement true throughout the book. First we are introduced to Immokalee, Florida. Florida has approximately forty four Thousand farms and two hundred and eighty different crops including: tobacco, peppers, peanuts, radishes, sweet corn, snap peas, cucumbers and more. Two of the largest crops are oranges and tomatoes. Forty miles inland from Fort Myers Beach, you will find Immokalee. There we meet the large number of underpaid migrant workers who pick the produce all of us Nobodies: A Literary Review 3 consume through such companies as Tropicana. Many workers report being forced to live in poor conditions and threatened with violence by a labor contractor known as Ã¢â¬ËEl DiabloÃ¢â¬â¢. He was infamous for his extreme cruelty.

Ã¢â¬Å"A Discussion and Analysis of Same-Sex Marriage in the United StatesÃ¢â¬ Tranard J. Harvin Dr. Yousuf PLJS 301 - American Government Claflin University November 13, 2015 A Discussion and Analysis of Same-Sex Marriage in the United States Tranard J. Harvin, Claflin University Introduction The notion of same-sex love is as ancient as human love and the question of how it is recognized and understood has bedeviled every human civilization. This institution has existed since the date of PlatoÃ¢â¬â¢s Symposium and has even been evident in seventeenth-century China and nineteenth century Africa where it was identical to opposite-sex marriage (Sullivan, 2004). Until the fourteenth-century of the Common Era, same-sex unions existed and wereÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦This debate is evitable across religious practices and is based on the morale of a number of religious books including the Torah and the Holy Bible. In each of these widely used religious books, the institution of marriage is between a man and woman and any other union is considered an abomination. The purpose of this paper is to discuss and analyze Same-Sex Marriage in the United States based on the arguments in favor of and against this recently legalized institution. The recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of Same-Sex Marriage has caused great controversy in the United States. People from both sides of this argument are still feeling the backfire from this decision. It is not easy to justify same-sex marriage, an institution that some same-sex couples consider to be a political act (Kimport, 2013). Despite the contemporary understandings of marriage as a personal union based on love, this implicit collective identity can easily be misinterpreted as a dislike for such unions. In fact, it is the exact opposite. Statement of the Problem Same-sex marriage has been both supported and not supported on the basis of several clusters of variables. These variables, according to Kimport, include symbolic politics, moral and religious attitudes and

The Jarrett family was referred to family counseling by Dr. Berger, to address the familyÃ¢â¬â¢s breakdown in communication brought on by grief, after losing the oldest son in a tragic accident and the events that followed. The JarrettÃ¢â¬â¢s are an upper-middle-class white family that live-in Forest Hills, Illinois. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Calvin, the father, age 41, is an attorney in a well-established law firm in Chicago. He has been acting as the mediator between Beth and Conrad. He was emotional about the loss of his son, Buck, and is concerned about ConradÃ¢â¬â¢s mental health after his suicide attempt. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Beth, the mother, age 40, seems to be the leader although, she is a stay-at-home mother. Beth is socially active and is adamant about keeping up appearances.Ã¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Throughout the marriage Beth has decreed who Calvin will be as a husband and father; on the day of BuckÃ¢â¬â¢s funeral she criticized CalvinÃ¢â¬â¢s choice of shoes he was wearing and demanded that he change them. Calvin also has a poorly differentiated Ã¢â¬Å"selfÃ¢â¬ ; he will quickly conform to BethÃ¢â¬â¢s demands because he also craves approval. She demands that her children be and act perfect. When Buck was little, before Conrad was born, Beth formed a very tight bond with Buck, that seemed to push Calvin out of the happy little triangle that was their family. BethÃ¢â¬â¢s pregnancy with Conrad was difficult; morning sickness, high blood pressure and a difficult labor and delivery. Beth does not have the same bond with Conrad as she did with Buck. Since Bucks death, Beth has withdrawn from any connect she might have had with Conrad; at times ignoring him when they are in the same room together, being irritated if Calvin wants to share his concerns about their sonÃ¢â¬â¢s emotional state and refusing to even be in a picture with Conrad. CalvinÃ¢â¬â¢s alliance with Beth begins to shift when he begins to realize that Beth is not the person he thought she was. He wonders if she cannot not even find a little compassion for their son, who is hurting so much; can she even love. As Calvin and Conrad begin to form a stronger bond Beth becomes stauncher in her beliefs that Conrad is the cause of the turmoil in the family.

Question: Discuss about the Listening And Its Importance In Shaping Up The Analytical Skills. Answer: The art of listening is different from the art of hearing (Goodman, 2017). The following essay aims is based on the video of Julian Treasure who has provided his opinion on listening and its importance in shaping up the analytical skills. The essay begins with highlighting the reason behind the selection of video followed by important points highlighted in the video, personal realization and contradiction with personal philosophies of beliefs. Finally the essay sums up with the important message shared in the video. Video Taken: https://www.ted.com/talks/julian_treasure_5_ways_to_listen_better#t-445882 Reason for selection of this video Listening is defined as a mental process or a process of extraction of information via auditory impulses (Bond, 2012). However, according to Turner (2013), people are gradually losing their ability to listen. Julian Treasure in the video has opined that people spent roughly 60% of the communication time in listening. However, even in this 60%, people are not listening attentively, they are only hearing. As a result, they can retain only 25% of what they have listened during the conversation. Moreover, decay in the art of listening is making it difficult for people to pay attention to something subtle, quiet and something which is understated. According to the recent reports published in The Hindu (2015), human have two ears and one mouth and here comes the importance of listening over speaking. Bond (2012) is of the opinion that when one is hearing and not listening, the words fall on the deaf ears and fails to reach the brain. Thus in the juxtaposition of listening and hearing, the live flow of information between the people is getting stagnant and thus there is decreasing the quality of effective communication. This different between listening and hearing along with the importance of listening has been highlighted in the video of Julian Treasure, making it a topic of interest. Moreover, the video also discussed the different strategies employed for listening along the practises that must be undertaken in order to increase the power of listening and thus further making it a topic of interest. Important points emphasized The points highlighted in the video of Julian Treasure is the importance of listening, its difference between the hearing and different examples of listening. According to Julian Treasure, one of the important examples of listening is pattern recognition. The concept proposed by Julian Treasure goes in sync with the findings of Turner (2013). According to Turner (2013) pattern recognition is an important aspect of listening as it helps in the definition of relation of speech perception towards the perception of the non-verbal auditory patterns. Julian Treasure further stated that there is a whole range of filters like culture, language, values, beliefs, attitudes, expectations and it is these filters we pay attention to and thus listen to the conversation that encompass these filters. Julian Treasure further opined the listening means understanding and it helps in refining the analytical skills of the person. According to Yang (2013), listening is a thinking function and demands anal ytical skills. Under the listeners hear the speaker carefully; they will not be able to make accurate analysis. Hearing on the other hand is prerequisite of active listening. However, the majority of people fail here, as the data that are being delivered by other person fail to reach a meaningful conclusion until they focus on the words pronounced by other persons. In the video, Julian highlighted that listening promotes understanding. According to Noddings (2012), the sense of understanding comes from reading or listening, when one listens carefully, he or she feeds the data inside the brain through the input devices (ear). The focus on the words refines the art of listening and thereby increasing the skill of understanding and analysis. Personal level realization I completely agree with the message shared in the video. At present people is more important in personal broadcasting and this is hampering the listening capability. When they are not engrossed in personal broadcasting, they are immersed inside their smart phones and listening to music or surfing social media sites. While taking part in a scientific seminar I have visualised that people are pretending that they listening but are not mentally present within the conversation. Perhaps, he or she is only hearing and not listening to the sentences. As per my understanding, the people are so mugged up with their own thoughts or ideas that fail to pay attention to the words of the speaker. I think they all cared about remembering their own speech and thus are not bothered enough to listen to the speech of the co-speakers. Moreover, Julian Treasure have highlighted that the advent of the concept of recording has disrupted the art of listening. I completely agree with this statement. This is because, with the advent of the facility of recording, people have developed a tendency that they will listen to it afterwards as per their convenience. However, there is sharp difference between the live listening and listening to any recorded audio files in a fast forwarded or rewind manner. So as a whole I truly agree with the reasons highlighted as the importance of listening by Julian Treasure and this proposed approaches to practise the art of listening. Philosophies of believes Viewing this topic has challenged my own philosophy related to listening. As per my understanding, listening creates fatigue and this goes against the concept proposed by Julian Treasure that listening is increases the analytical skills. My mode of understanding is derived from the findings of the McGarrigle et al. (2014). According to McGarrigle et al. (2014), for normal hearing population, everyday listening is effortless job but listening in the midst of the noisy environments creates a stress over the brain. This is because, brain is required to carry out all the necessary backstage operations that enables selective processing of definite sound and simultaneous filtering out of irrelevant sound. However, the concept proposed by Julian Treasure says that listening is a feel of joy under every condition for example in an environment filled with cacophony. Julian Treasure further opined that understanding the difference in tempo of two sounds under a crowed environment like in a mus ic bar helps to increase the listening skills of a person. Thus my mode of understanding of listening and brain stress is contradicted with importance of exercise of listening. The message The main message provided in the video is the practising the art of listening. This is because according to Julian Treasure, active listening creates understanding. Julian Treasure proposed three approach to practise the art of listening and these includes Silence of at least 3 minutes of per day, listening to the mixer in order to detect how many sounds one can hear, enjoyment of the mundane sounds which Julian has described as hidden choir or savouring and different listening positions. Here the importance of silence per day, is symbolised as the importance of practising medication which helps to increase the concentration skills. Julian also proposed an acronym that can be helpful for practising listening and this is RASA. RASA is a Sanskrit term meaning juice or extract and Julian abbreviated as R: receive A: appreciate S: summarise A: ask Via indicating RASA, Julian meant that the best approach to listening is carefully conceptualise the speech of the other person (receive) and then via analysing the same either contradict or agree with the speaker (appreciate) and they try to cast you own approach based on the listening (summarise) and at the question the speaker if you encounter any query (ask). Another important message that is given in this video is importance of practising listening among the school children. This message opined by Julian scores immense importance in the domain of skills of primary school children. According to Davies (2017), practice of listening helps to increase the analytical skills of the children. The message is indeed powerful and will help to increase the awareness in the domain of active listening. Thus from the above discussion it can be concluded that art of listening is gradually dying among the present day population. They are getting more engrossed in their self-thoughts or their mind is getting so much pre-occupied with other activities or information that they are failing to cast attention to others words. Decline in the art of listening in turn is hampering the analytical skills of a person thereby causing a drop in intellect. Therefore, proper practise of art of listening is crucial in order to sustain the concept of attentive hearing or listening. References Bhardwaj. S., Listening as a dying Art. (2015). The Hindu.

Major American Writers Major American Writers The honored title of Major American Writer tends to be ambiguous and ill defined in part because each individual reader holds preconceived notions about what characteristics a writer should possess to be classified as a major author. Every work an author creates combines with the others to form a body of material on which the writer is judged. This class on Major American Writers studied five authors with completely different genres, writing styles, and general appeal. The choice for these particular authors was based on criteria unique to the instructor. Since every reader requires different characteristics, this paper will outline my specific criteria for a Major American Writer and apply those to Robert Frost and Henry James. Frost is a perfect example as defined by my characteristics of a major writer. His work embodies all the features necessary to categorize him as such. While James's work is well critiqued and studied, he does not meet my criteria for a major writer. His work falls short in some of the fundamental requirements. There are four specific criteria by which I define a Major American Writer. The most important for the significance of an author is the relevance of the writings to human nature. Timeless works of literature or poetry connect with the audiences' innermost emotions. The nature of the world is constant change and if the work of an author is not able to transcend the change it will be forgotten or obsolete. One thing constant enough to be the focus of the work is the human condition. Another criterion for a Major American Writer is that the substance of the work must also engage the reader. Writing cannot be effective without an audience. If the author has no impact on people the material written accomplished nothing. Engagement may come about through the entertainment value or intellectual interest, neither being of greater importance. Style as well as substance is necessary when discussing criteria for an author to be a Major American Writer. The technical aspects of a work, such as n arrator and form, are important in a work because they are ways to distinguish a superb writer from a mediocre writer. The last criterion for a Major American Writer is the overall impact on literature. Major authors should have the ability to reshape or redefine literature or public thought in some manner. Considerations of the author's contributions to the genre as well as the world of literature are consequential when deciding to include the writer in the category of a major writer. Not every author who is considered as a major writer needs to totally fulfill all the criteria set forth. There are many other considerations that could qualify an author for this honor. These four conditions are simply a starting point for qualification. The first writer I chose to examine is Robert Frost. He expressly fulfills all four criteria for qualification as a Major American Writer. Many of his poems deal with the innermost workings of the human experience. He beautifully illustrates difficult to explain emotions with prose and poetry. His poem The Road Not Taken reveals the conflict between choices made and choices passed. This is not something easily expressed in words, but Frost eloquently makes his point. The second criterion Frost meets is the engagement of the reader. The excellence in his work lies in the fact that anyone can read and enjoy his writings. There are levels of meaning that can be read in a very basic, literal manner or studied for complexity of meaning so as to engage lay readers or scholars. After Apple-Picking is as much about picking apples as it is about life and death. Frost's writing style also helps his writing to be accessible and to engage the reader. This writing form fulfills the third criterio n for a Major American Writer. His style of blank verse and unrhymed lines give the poetry a tone of normal conversation. The technique is followed almost continually throughout his poetry revealing his dedication to the technical aspect of writing as well as the artistic. Metaphors are present in his work but not dominating to the point of convolution. They relate to the actual events in the

Ezzz Essays - Logic Families, Digital Electronics, Free Essays Ezzz Discussion: A logic gate performs a logical operation on one or more logic inputs and produces a single logic output. The logic is called Boolean logic and is most commonly found indigital circuits. Logic gates are primarily implemented electronically using diodes or transistors, but can also be constructed using electromagnetic relays (relay logic), fluidic logic, pneumatic logic, optics, molecules, or even mechanical elements. The simplest form of electronic logic is diode logic. A Digital Logic Gate is an electronic device that makes logical decisions based on the different combinations of digital signals present on its inputs. A digital logic gate may have more than one input but only has one digital output. Standard commercially available digital logic gates are available in two basic families or forms, TTL which stands for Transistor-Transistor Logic such as the 7400 series, andCMOS which stands for Complementary Metal-Oxide-Silicon which is the 4000 series of chips. This notation of TTL o r CMOS refers to the logic technology used to manufacture the integrated circuit, (IC) or a "chip" as it is more commonly called.

Process Analysis on the Language of Mordovia - Essay Example This paper was also able to explain important aspects and developments which now seem to impact on the preservation and use of the Mordovian language. These details formulate part of this paperÃ¢â¬â¢s critical analysis. Such details provide links between societal changes and their impact on the language. The explanation of the writer is orderly and detailed. The essay was able to present a structured paper as it discusses the Mordovian language based on the contribution of their society and the Russian historical developments. The paper is highly substantive. In evaluating the content and substance of this paper, it has been noted that the author has concentrated his analysis on a historical context. Although this analysis process is helpful in evaluating the development of the language, it does not provide details in relation to development milestones which would also have impacted on the growth or the decline of the language. The content of the paper is also lacking in more speci fic details in terms of the Russian influence and in terms of the peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s acceptance of their language and changes in such language. The materials, as well as the discussions of the references chosen to support this study, are very much relevant and appropriate for this paper. They help provide support for the contents and for the substance of this topic, as well as provide clarity for some vague aspects of the subject matter. In effect, the topic for this essay is very much relevant because there are various changes being seen in the development of this language Ã¢â¬â changes which are contributing to the decline of this languageÃ¢â¬â¢s usage in Mordovian society. The essay is highly informative in terms of presenting important aspects of the Mordovian language, its people, and its history. The discussion is not based on a unidimensional discussion, it is based on a dynamic and diverse perspective on the Mordovian language. The essay even made a clear pitch towards its discussion on the future of the language and its current prospects based on the contemporary global situation. The author tried to ensure that the paper was plagiarism free, however, there are gaps in the paper which seem to indicate that the statement being made are of the authorÃ¢â¬â¢s own words, when in fact they come from a resource material. The paper needs to be improved in terms of summarization and paraphrasing in order to avoid plagiarism and to ensure that the authorÃ¢â¬â¢s own words are not used as personal words for this paper. It would have been more appropriate for the student to use more words like Ã¢â¬Å"according to,Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬Å"in the book by,Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬Å"based on,Ã¢â¬ and similar words which indicate that the statement is not of the studentÃ¢â¬â¢s own opinion or analysis. This essay is based on the APA format and the student made use of proper APA formatting. The reference page however is not properly formatted. The APA format is not supposed to be n umbered and the references must be placed on a hanging indent. The indents for each paragraph are also not based on the APA format. The flow of ideas from one paragraph to the other is mostly logical. For the most part, the links for the different paragraphs are based on the logical movement of ideas. However, there are some gaps in the flow with some of the paragraphs failing to provide links to the next paragraph.
