Google in China
When Google was being created, the designers had one main goal for the company. They wanted to find the best way to organize the entire world’s information in a way to make it easily accessible and useful. Google’s mantra has been “don’t be evil” since day one and continues to be at the core of their company’s business ethics. In 2000, Google decided to begin a Chinese language site for the people of China but based the operations in the United States. Chinese officials blocked the Google website in 2002 and redirected users to a state run government search engine. After one of the co-founders read several books to try to understand why the Chinese government...

Topic: Content on Internet Should Be Censored
Internet censorship is the control or suppression of the publishing of, or access to information on the Internet. It may be carried out by governments or by private organizations either at the behest of government or on their own initiative. Individuals and organizations may engage in self-censorship on their own or due to intimidation and fear. Internet censorship in India is selectively practiced by both federal and state governments. While there is no sustained government policy or strategy to block access to Internet content on a large scale, measures for removing content that is obscene or otherwise...

Google, Inc., In China (Edited) Kristen E. Martin
Tom MacLean finished watching the Senate hearing on C-Span and slumped in his chair. He had been with Google, Inc., as a director of International Business for only nine months, and it wasn’t going as well as he had hoped. The decision—to physically enter Chinese territory and, consequently, subject search results to Chinese filtering and monitoring— drew ire from non-governmental organizations academics, press and the general public, culminating in a congressional hearing. A search for Tiananmen Square on Google.com produces a list of web sites depicting the brutal suppression of demonstrators in China in June 1989. The same search on...

To what extent did the creation of the Empire in 1804 mark a significant change in Napoleon’s rule of France?
The empire was created in 1804 where Napoleon was crowned the hereditary emperor of France by the Pope. His empire consisted of the pays réunis; land ruled by France and the pays conquis, which were satellite states ruled by the French that bordered France and gave them protection and safety from invasion. Despite becoming emperor in 1804, Napoleon already had a lot of power with his role of first consul. He was the head of state and had control over France, Napoleon was able to control government appointments and appoint who he wished into the Senate which would provide him with...

How Free Is ‘Free Speech’ When Society Disagrees?
Free speech is a complicated issue, not just in the United States, but in many other countries as well. Unfortunately the freedom of speech is not as simple as saying anything at any time. While by law, everyone in the United States is entitled to the freedom to speak their minds, social expectations and mainstream culture restrict what people are able to say. However, as society has progressed many social changes have been made by people who have refused to be silenced by mainstream culture. Movements such as the Civil Rights Movement and the LBGTQ movement have been started by people who have fully used their rights to free speech. This...

Another privacy issue is hacking. Because social networks do not offer security measures for their users, many of the computers used by networkers are vulnerable to hackers. Every bit of information on a networker’s computer becomes available to those skilled in this science, often without the knowledge of the networker.
Along with the ability to hack is the ability to plant viruses. Many viruses today are passed through social networks, often undetected. Networks are a playing field for computer viruses.
Social networks are largely uncensored. While this may not seem to be an issue, some of the photos and language used by some networkers is inappropriate for children, yet it is...

The Threat of Online Publications to the Traditional Publishing Industry
The aggregate demand of published material, both online and offline, is a fixed number. Publishers in today's mass media market face fierce competition; each customer that an online publisher wins comes at the expense of its offline counterpart. To illustrate, imagine the unequal slicing of a pumpkin pie representing market shares that vary in size. The sum of all shares, or 'slices,' adds up to the total client base. Although each publisher already owns a portion of the pie, it still covets those who have a bigger slice. In this zero-sum game, with each new slice that a publisher gains, its pie becomes...

copies of Sexology were widely read in the U.S.A. 7 In particular, the Haldeman-Julius
Big and Little Blue Books were widely available and inexpensive, and many of them
were virtual best sellers, not officially, but in terms of numbers sold. The owners of
Haldeman-Julius Publications, Emanuel Haldeman and his wife, Marcet, were both
atheists and socialists whose aim was to educate working people, and they were
strongly against censorship.
Cauldwell wrote extensively on sexual behavior, especially "deviant" sexual

To what extent do you agree with the view that the Commonwealth failed because of its lack of reforms? (30 marks)
The Commonwealth lasted from the 1649-1653 and was made up of the Rump and the Nominated Assembly. At the time there were many issues that needed reform such as religious, legal, electoral, taxation and the constitution. It is fair to say that the Commonwealth did fail because of their lack of reforms to some extent; however this was not for lack of trying. The Rump did fail to reform, but the Nominated Assembly trued to reform but was dissolved by its own members before it could. However this was not the main reason why eh Commonwealth failed seeing as they were unpopular and...

Violence in Video Games
English (Tuesdays Thursdays)
97% of 12-17 year olds in the US played video games in 2008, this fueling an $11.7 billion domestic video game industry. In 2008, 10 of the top 20 best-selling video games in the US contained violence. Violent video games have been blamed for school shootings, increases in bullying, and violence towards women. Critics argue that these games desensitize players to violence, reward players for simulating violence, and teach children that violence is an acceptable way to resolve conflicts. Video game advocates contend that a majority of the research on the topic is deeply flawed and that no causal...

How does the writer present his thoughts and feelings about World War One? How far is the extract similar to and different from your wider reading in the literature of World War One? You should consider the writers choice of form, structure and language, as well as subject matter.
By the extract being from Bertrand Russell’s autobiography it should show an accurate depiction of the war at the time, due to him actually living through these events. However, autobiographies could be biased as they are based on the writers’ beliefs and opinions rather than just the truth and facts. By him also being a pacifist and refusing to fight it would also mean he hadn’t been at the front so would only...

Art is an important part of every society. It tells of the history of the people, their culture and it depicts at each phase, what the society is going through. In today's fast paced era, people are almost always preoccupied with the chores of today and the concerns of tomorrow and they hardly find time to devote in appreciating various artforms which may have been one of their several childhood interests. Also, people's interests are increasingly changing and aligning with the art attractions of the latest century like metal music over classical or carnatic, plastic decorative furniture over ancient terracota for their homes and so on. Thus, largely lack of government funding can endanger...

Violence in the Media
Some believe that violence in the media is to blame for violence in people, but that argument is undermined by the realization that violence existed long before video games and television. In fact, violence has actually been steadily decreasing since these things have been growing in popularity. Critics of violent media seem to long for the “good old days”; a time before there was violence in the media. These critics fail to acknowledge that those “good old days” were actually far more violent than today. While violence is still present in modern society, it pales in comparison to the violence that was...

Common SAT Essay Themes and Archetypes
The makers of the SAT use several themes from which they draw essay questions. By knowing these themes ahead of time, you can prepare several preplanned examples to use for each theme. For example, take Thomas Edison. He used over 6000 filaments before finding one that worked in the electric light bulb. You could use this example for essays on adversity, success, history, and progress. The following is a list of these themes and real examples of essay questions produced by the College Board. The questions have been paraphrased for simplicity, but they provide you with an idea of how the themes are recycled each year.

Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue?
Why was Socrates regarded as a man of virtue?
Socrates: Man of Virtue (470-399 B.C.E.) Socrates proposed the theory of value in which there are two sorts of good: virtue and happiness. Both are unconditional goods. But happiness is a "self-generated" good in that it "derives its value strictly from its inherent properties;" whereas virtue is an "other-generated" good in that it derives its value from happiness, precisely from its conduciveness to happiness.
Virtue is an instinct in all humanity which can be aroused through self-examination. This universal truth is accessible to everyone who thinks and question. Socrates assumes that any...

“WE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY AND JUSTICE”
After a historic election in 2001, Thaksin was the first democratically elected prime minister of Thailand to complete a full term in office and his rule is generally agreed to have been one of the most distinctive in the country's modern history. At the time, some academics called it the most open, corruption-free election in Thai history. Thai Rak Thai won 248 parliamentary seats. Not only that, he got re-elected and back in position again in 2005, winning 374 out of 500 seats in the Parliament. The election had been recorded as the highest voter turnout in Thai history. That means that the people of Thailand approved him democratically. And it’s the...

How far were the 1848 revolutions stimulated by socio-economic rather than political factors?
The revolutions of 1848 were a series of simultaneous revolutions across a number of countries, mainly in Europe. A number of different reasons brought about these revolutions but each individual country had different reasons to why they had a revolution. As a result of this we cannot fully determine whether the 1848 revolutions were driven by socioeconomic or political reasons until we have looked at each major case individually, as this will allow us to make an accurate judgement on why the revolution occurred. To look at each country and their revolutionary...

Question 1: Introduction
For this paper, I will be discussing two opposing ideologies, Confucianism and Legalism. Towards the later part of ancient China (e.g Han dynasty), states started to adopt a mixture of Confucianism and Legalistic ideology. Why did Legalism and Confucianism fall off?
In this paper I will explore and provide my own insights on the shortcomings of both ideologies; how Legalism was more persuasive in getting people to accept their ideas and more effective as an ideology and how Confucianism lost out in both aspects.
Persuasiveness of Legalism
The central idea of legalism was to provide absolute power to the person in charge and the...

What is the role of institutions according to North? How far does this theory go towards explaining the contours of world development in the pre-modern growth era?
Maddison (2006) stated that he “would characterise the whole period 1000-1820 as ‘protocapitalist’”. He believes the transition from pre-modern to modern economic growth took place at around 1820. This will set the stage for this discussion. Within that period, there were two groups of countries which were differentiated by their deviation in economic growth. They were the Group A nations, which included Western Europe, Western Offshoots and Japan, while the rest of the world made up the Group B nations. The contours of world...

A study of the effect of bribery and corruption with lack of censorship in the governmental institution
There are various reasons why corruption takes place and takes hold. Sometimes it is due to the fact that officials are simply not paid very much and so they need to supplement their salaries with money from bribes. Sometimes the bureaucratic system is set up in such a way that officials simply refuse to carry out their duties unless they are ‘encouraged’ by being offered bribes. In other cases it is actually part of the tradition and culture of a country to give and receive ‘gifts’ in order to get anything done. In some cases companies from less...

NSA Surveillance Program
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was created in 1978 as a response to past presidential abuses of massive domestic wiretapping and surveillance that were conducted by the National Security Agency (NSA) on many innocent Americans. FISA was designated to limit warrantless foreign intelligence surveillance for national security purposes and to issue the extent to which NSA could seize domestic communications. An executive power would need a warrant approved by FISA and only for the cases where the sole intention for the surveillance was to obtain foreign intelligence information (Skalski 15). ...

Children do not always need loving and supportive parents in order to grow up successful. In The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, not every child needs loving and supportive parents. Although they do love their children, Rex and Mary use very basic parental decisions; the children are very independent and raise themselves for the most part. With the right mindset, motivation and knowledge this can lead to success in life even through the hardest of times.
Jeannette was at the lower class growing up, but she learned to survive anyway she could at a very young age. Considering Jeannette’s parents were not very stable, Jeannette saw that even though she was at the lower side of things, there...

Statistics show that two-thirds of the adults in the United States are overweight or obese (Flegal et al., 2012). Obesity rates have more than doubled in both adults and children since the 1970s’ (carrielachance.com). This trend has got to stop or one’s quality of life will be greatly shortened.

Many will find that losing weight can be extremely difficult for people; if they do not make eating right and exercising a part of...
