motivated to involve themselves with what is mainstream so they can fit in and thrive.
Majority group– an ethnic/racial group that has the largest population and usually the greatest
economic and political power in a society.
Marcel Mauss– introduced the qualities of gift giving, author of The Gift. Mauss was also a French
sociologist, his work often bounced between sociology and anthropology.
Marxism– the political and economic theories of Karl Marx, later developed by their followers to
form the basis for the theory and practice of communism.
Masculinity– qualities that are typically associated with men. Masculinity can be used as a negative
term towards women. If a woman enjoys an activity that is generally correlated with men, such as
playing football, then they are called masculine.
Mediascape– another term defined by Arjun Appadurai, mediascape refers to the electronic and print
media in "global cultural flows".
Migration– specifically speaking about human migration, it is defined as the movement by people
from one place to another and settling in a new location.

In Favor of a More Liberal Drug Policy Essay
In Favor of a More Liberal Drug Policy In William J. Bennett's address entitled "Drug Policy and
the Intellectuals," Bennett maintains that the drug problem in America can be ultimately solved. In
my opinion, the drug problem in America is one that cannot be completely resolved to the point
where drug use no longer exists in America, but drug abuse can be alleviated. One effective way to
do this would be to legalize the personal use of drugs that are more common and less potent (like
marijuana), and to stop wasting time and tax dollars punishing minor offenders. Legalizing the use
of soft drugs would help bolster the U.S. economy, partially because the government would have the
ability to tax these drugs. This includes ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
A policy that focuses on imprisoning all drug users and dealers is the type of policy that is prone to
hurt America economically.
Drug prohibition may be a factor that is actually encouraging the spread of harder drugs. As
government officials and police officers become more skilled in capturing drug smugglers and
dealers, the pushers find more efficient ways to transport and conceal drugs, creating a larger supply
and often making hard drugs more accessible and affordable to the common user. Although the
government has succeeded in raising marijuana prices from $20 and ounce in the 1960's to $200 an
ounce today, the price of cocaine has fallen from $50,000 a kilo in the 1970's to $10,000 a kilo
today. Also, the potency and composition of these drugs is often unpredictable. If the government
legalized these more minor drugs, as Milton Friedman pointed out in his essay "There's No Justice
in the War on Drugs," they'd have the ability to regulate them and make them less dangerous than
they would have been if they'd been sold on the street.
Bennett's arguments against the legalization of drugs are somewhat one–sided. This may have been
why I was more convinced by Friedman's essay, which relied more on concrete facts than on the
pretense that the opposing argument was trivial. In "Drug Policy and the Intellectuals," Bennett says,
"To call it a 'debate' suggests that the arguments in favor of drug legalization are rigorous,
substantial,

Ethics of Deception in Advertising
Ethics of deception in advertising: Why is deceptive advertising morally objectionable? 1.
Introduction In the world of today, the role of marketing within the business community has
increased exponentially. Nowadays' consumers are presented with countless purchase opportunities,
numerous providers and various points of value. In order to attract and retain their buyers, economic
agents devise and implement a wide array of strategic efforts, including the creation of strong and
aggressive marketing campaigns. Marketing today is virtually present in all aspects of life and it
addresses virtually anybody, from young children to senior consumers, and selling anything from
toys and diapers to medicine. And in ensuring an increase in the demand for the advertised product,
often times marketers use deception in their campaigns. The specialized literature on the aspect of
deception in advertising is rather scarce and its primary shortage is that of not having coined a
universally accepted definition of deceptive advertising. Additionally, another problem is raised by
the fact that deceptive advertising is often accepted as unethical, yet evidence lacks in this sense. In
such a context then, the current project sets out to establish a more thorough understanding of the
concept of deceptive advertising and to assess its ethical dimension. 2. Deceptive advertising
defined As it has been mentioned throughout the previous section, the specialized literature has not

  • 7. Facial Expressions A History on Universal Facial Expressions: The Works of Lamarck, Izard and Russell Kathleen Coyne–Boyles From the time of the ancient Greeks through to the modern age, understanding and interpreting man's emotions and body language have been a source of both fasicnation and a point of intellectual debate. The ancient philosophers, such as Aristotle, proposed the idea that the face takes on varying appearances which are characteristic of each of the passions (or emotions) of humankind. The famous Greek masks of the theatre embody exaggerated facial expressions in order to dramatize the great joys and tragedies of human existence. Artists throughout history have worked to capture facial expression while philosophers have debated about ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In this way, the son inherits this soft characteristic and the facial expression becomes a feature of soft inheritance. In Use and Disuse Theory, adaptation in a species occurs because complex force drives organisms further up a ladder of increasing complexity. Then, environmental force adapts organisms to their local environment. Adaptation evolves by using some characteristics more than others based upon differing environments. Those characteristics not used or needed as much drop off and those needed to suit a particular environment are passed on. In some ways, the so–called Ghost of Lamarck left its impressions upon Darwin and sparked a debate among evolutionary theorists as to whether characteristics like facial expressions are socially learned skills which can be inherited by the next generation or if they are universal and slowly evolving, purely biologically programmed responses to basic human survival. Universality of Facial Expressions Darwinian thought holds that facial expressions are universal in nature and evolved in man alongside his basic struggle for survival. These facial expressions developed in order to protect and keep the species alive. One example would be that a tribe watches a woman take a bite out of a poisonous plant and observes her face as she shows disgust or pain.

  • 9. Essay on Defining Voluntarism 1. (652) In the reading of The Sources of Normativity, Christine Korsgaard discusses four basic theories for the justification of morality: Voluntarism, Realism, Reflective Endorsement, and the Appeal to Autonomy. For the purpose of this essay, I will be defining Voluntarism, outlining the argument that Korsgaard presents for Voluntarism, and explain her criticism for why it fails. First of all, let me start off by defining the meaning of Voluntarism. Voluntarism is the theory that God or the ultimate nature of reality is to be conceived as some form of will (or conation). This theory is contrasted to intellectualism, which gives primacy to God's reason. (Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy) The will, as referred to in the ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Christine Korsgaard's criticism for the reason why the theory of Voluntarism fails reflects upon the fact that the authority or divine power making the laws can make anything right or wrong. Korsgaard goes on to explain a situation in which you are a student in her department and are thereby required to take a particular course, in this case, a logic course in order to receive your degree. If you are in her department and she, having authority over you, requires you to take the course and you fail to do so, then you are at risk of not receiving your degree. On the other hand, if you are not a student in her department, she can give several reasons as to why the logic course is needed but you are not required to take the course and can hereby make a decision as to whether or not you wish to take the course, which Korsgaard goes on to explain, is why authority is needed in order to enforce the laws. You can take the course because you realize the importance, out of fear of not receiving your degree, or just for the simple fact that it is a required course. Even if the obligation was removed, the question lies among whether or not the moral agent will continue to perform the duty. It is Korsgaard's theory that a governing body is needed to enforce the obligation in order for the action to take place and that governing body is, in what she believes, our own self. We "command ourselves" to do what is morally right, good, and just. For example, prior to the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Technical advancements were made in environments, lighting, and simulation of physical effects and integration of CG characters in a real environment. This movie was a true success through the use of well–known actors, and by using proper voice over acting throughout this film. Actors such as Tyrese Gibson (SGT Epps), Magan Fox (Mikaela Banes), and John Keller (John Turturro) just to name a few of the actors that made this movie a huge success. The reason acting played a significant role in the accomplishment of this movie was because they had to act without having the most significant actors being present, the Transformers themselves.

By the use of editing the theatrical scenes were superimposed into the background of the acting conducted. It took a team of editors and computer programmers in order to accomplish this mission.

Literary Themes and Symbols of the Holocaust Literary Themes and Symbols of the Holocaust Although Holocaust literature focuses on a specific period in world history, it also contains some common themes and symbols that help to define this era. The butterfly, for instance, is a symbol for the ephemeral lives of Holocaust children. A child, Pavel Friedman, wrote a poem titled "The Butterfly" during his time in a concentration camp. Since then, the butterfly has been a Holocaust theme for the large number of children who did not survive. A book,I Never Saw Another Butterfly, compiled by Inge Auerbacher, a Holocaust survivor at Terezín, features artwork, poems (including Friedman's poem), and words from many of the young children who died inside Terezín's walls. Patricia Polacco'sThe Butterfly also connects to this symbol as a butterfly gets crushed in a fist, helping show young children the horrors that occurred during the Holocaust in ways that could easily be understood. The theme of voice is also prevalent in many works. Some literary pieces, likeThe Diary of a Young Girl, explore how the absence of a voice keeps families safe; others show the power of the voice as they speak out against the atrocities of the time.

In the documentary, Capturing the Friedmans, former computer students who had once attended Arnold's classes were interviewed about the situation.

This just goes to show that using memories is inaccurate and repression are sometimes used to deny these accusations. However, even if these people were not using repression, they may be experiencing amnesia due to the traumatic occurrences of these horrendous events that happened during their childhood. Nonetheless, whether the former computer students did lie or truthfully forgot about it, these memories should still not be used to convict people wrongfully without hardcore evidence. To sum up, courts should not use memories of witnesses as a way to imprison those who are charged with a crime. This is because memories tend to be easily influenced and can also contain concealed lies within it. As a result, there is inaccurate information told in the witnesses' statements.

It seems that Jarecki is more concerned about telling a compelling story than uncovering the truth behind the case. In addition, one questions whether the filmmaker was in fact neutral or did he employ "dramatic liberties (to) distort actuality?" (Arthur 5) In the documentary we see Jessie stating that it is "not appropriate to have to answer for the sins of my Father," which hints at Jarecki's belief that Jessie is in fact innocent and wrongly convicted.

Eldewak 4 Reem Eldewak Justin Williams Freshman Composition 5 October 2015 As time progresses in our technologically propelled era and the internet continues to provide as the largest network source of information, our intellectual perception of information takes on a more distinctive and less analytical approach than before. The use of the internet has seized control over the vast connection of neural pathways in our minds, influencing our experiences and essentially hindering our natural ability to apply cognitive thinking. Although its intention was to nourish our minds with an instant unlimited source of valuable information, the internet has caused some people to lose their appreciation for long texts and their ability to concentrate. Within the essay, "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" by Nicholas Carr, the author feels that someone has been tinkering with his brain and that he can no longer enjoy reading a book of any length because he cannot sustain concentration on the book (Carr 1). This is a result of the fact that when people use the internet to find information, they habituate themselves to skim along the lines to quickly allocate their answers and once they have gotten what they needed, they close the browser without any further analysis of the information. According to his text, Carr asserts that he is not the only person who feels that his ability to concentrate has diminished.

While living in Vermont, Jackson continued to write. One of her earliest times in Vermont later became material for her first book about the family, "Life Among the Savages." Between 1945 and 1947, Jackson was occupied with her first novel, "The Road Through the Wall." But it was in 1948 that her greatest success was achieved. The publication of the short story, "The Lottery", brought fame, as well as letters from readers all over the country. But more often there were abusive letters from people who did not understand her motives or what she was trying to do. A year later a book entitled, "The Lottery", was published containing an assortment of short stories including "The Lottery."

When she returned, Paris was a completely different place. However, the demand for her art had not changed. Vigee Le Brun is considered a painter of the rococo period. Rococo is best described as an eighteenth century art style that places importance on the carefree life rather than grand heroes. Originally the rococo fashion started in Paris, where Vigee Le Brun was born. It changed the way people looked at art and the world in general (Bleiberg). Vigee Le Brun not only used the rococo style in her art, but also to influence fashion, persuading women to wear simple, high waist shifts, which would be an important stepping stone in changing fashion forever.

  • 54. Benefits Of A Sugar Tax Compare & Contrast Essay: Sugar Tax Just last year, Berkeley's and San Francisco's ballots included measure that would tax sugary drinks one or two cents per ounce because of their high sugar content. Berkley, less than thirty minutes away from San Francisco, became the first city in the United states to adopt the tax while San Francisco became the thirty–first city to oppose it (Knight). As the tax and its ideas gain popularity, more cities are including the measure for the tax in their elections. The issue is that America's obesity rates have skyrocketed over the past twenty years and have cost our country about $147 billion dollars in health expenses a year (Reinberg). One of the proposed ways to fix this problem is a sugar tax. It is a tax targeted at hydro processed overbought snacks with a high sugar content that have been proven to cause health risks. This would be similar to alcohol and tobacco. We can still buy these products but warning labels are placed on them and a tax is levied to offset the costs of what could happen to a person 's health after over consumption of these items. Proponents of this tax argue that sugar is one of the main causes of obesity to surge and a tax will be a useful deterrent when buying overly sugared items. Opponents of the tax argue that taxation is an ineffective way to get consumers to stop buying sugary items and it will most directly impact poorer families.

For a few decades now the idea of legalizing marijuana has been met with fierce opposition and seen as being nearly impossible to accomplish. The current state of our economy and criminal corrections system have actually made the option of legalizing marijuana for financial aid as not only a viable option but a prudent one (Cohen, 2009).

It is no longer seen as being a desperate plea from stoned out hippies. This idea has reached some of the highest offices in our land. States have already begun to ratify and reform laws based on marijuana (Cohen, 2009). The only issue that I can see is the culture shock that the country would feel. It would be a radical difference from what we have been used to. "What 's that you say? You can buy rolled joints at the Exxon?" These types of questions will be the tip of the iceberg. After a little bit of time, people will become comfortable with the idea and a new page will be turned in the American history books.

To do so, Andrew Jarecki portrays a sense of innocence and ambiguity from the alleged perpetrators, and victims.. One of the most profunding ways in which a sense of ambiguity is portrayed within this work is the absence of recollection. Within the film Arnold Friedman confesses to the fact that as a child, he sexaully assaulted his younger brother while in bed. However, when his brother is asked about this instance, he denies it all and claims it never happened. These moments are then paired with other instances of ambiguity such as the montage of interviews where former students will speak upon an instance of sexual assault within the computer classes, only to then have another former student deny every claim previously made. This absence of a universal truth works to make viewers question whether or not the assault happened. This ambiguity is then accompanied by home videos of the family dealing with infighting, denial, and total frustration with the entire process: in effect humanizing the men. Through this humanization its becomes increasingly harder for an audience to find guilt in the men. This process of reflexivity, allows audiences to view the stories of these two men from a different standpoint, and come to a different conclusion in regards to guilt of these men, than of before.
