Absolute Monarchy Paragraphs
What would it be like to be the queen and rule an absolute monarchy? I feel it would be the best to be the queen and have all the say. An absolute monarchy would be best as no elections have to take place. Being the leader of an absolute monarchy means you have no one to answer to. Lastly, an absolute monarchy would be best because the leader can charge as much tax as you want because you are in charge.
Being the leader of an absolute monarchy means I don't have to call for an election because there is no such thing. Elections take a long time to arrange and process the votes but when I am in charge we would never need an election. Many monarchies have been...

To reform the U.S. electoral system, the government should eliminate the Electoral College and allow the citizens to choose the president in order to make the system more democratic. The function of the Electoral College is described in Article II Section 2 of the constitution, the constitution “does not provide that all US citizens may vote for presidential electors. Rather, it provides only that the electors shall be appointed as the state legislatures direct. Once a state determines that electors shall be chosen by popular vote it has wide latitude to determine eligibility to vote” (Hardaway 106). The electors are chosen based on the amount of House of Representatives and Senators each...

Organised Retail Industry – India
Indian organised retail market is only about 8% of the total domestic retail market. It is expected that this sector will grow to about 20% in the next 8 to 10 years. This is a huge opportunity area for any company with a good financial capacity and market knowledge.
Major portion of the existing market share is with Indian companies with a few Joint Ventures of global giants. FDI policies of India have not been very conducive to the entry of global retailers like TESCO & Wal-Mart. While the current government has increased FDI investment to 51%, it has also put in conditions of minimum $100 million investment and split of investment in front...

The State Judicial Process
The State Judicial Selection Process
Have you ever wondered how the judges within your state are chosen? The way a judge
is chosen for the state varies from state to state, and there are a few ways they are put on the
bench. One way for a judge to be put on the bench is to be appointed by the Governor or state
legislature (FindLaw, 2012). A second way to choose a judge is through a merit selection. A
merit selection is where a judge is chosen by a legislative committee based on each of the
potential judge's performance in the past (FindLaw, 2012). A third way to get a judge on the
bench is by a partisan election; in which a judge is selected through...

The country has a history of being one step ahead of the rest in terms of technology, being the first country in the world to use online voting for the national parliamentary elections. In addition to that, they have impressive statistics showing that the country is producing more technology start-ups per capita than any other EU country. One of the more famous start-ups is of course Skype, and to ensure this trend is maintained, the Estonian government is now...

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.

During the mid-20th century, political and military tensions arose between world powers – the United States and its allies versus the Soviet Union and theirs. The Soviet Union’s desire to build a communist regime was problematic for the United States who wanted to spread the idea of democracy. Upon his election into office in 1953, President Eisenhower’s leadership style was decisive to many Americans as this was the beginning of the early stages of the Cold War. Succeeding Eisenhower, President John F. Kennedy also had to uphold a high level of responsibility especially regarding Vietnam where communist China and Russia sought control.
In the 19th century, France annexed Indo-China....

The question now is does mass media such as newspapers, television, and the internet affect the voting trends of the voters? The ownership of the media (Djankov, Nenova, McLiesh, & Shleifer, 2003), targeting specific demographics (Clinton & Lapinski, 2004), the implications of the internet (DiMaggio, Hargittai, Neuman, & Robinson, 2003) and how candidates use media (Aarts & Semetko, 2003) are all important aspects in determining whether a potential bias...

“Five myths about gun control”

1. I like this article because it states specific facts about gun control and not just opinions. It talks about all the myths about gun control, one myth is that gun control is a losing battle for Democrats. But, that is false because many democrats have voiced their opinion on the topic. Another myth is that guns are deadliest as murder weapons which has been also proven false because statistics show that gun suicide is more common than gun homocide. Another myth is that American schools have become shooting galleries. Horrible incidents like Sandy Hook and Columbine...

I did not know the language, how to apply for a job or where to look for help and support to make my life easier. After a couple of years, I found a small but very important Hispanic organization that helped me to succeed through the services that they provided. There are many people who still do not know about it, and I think people should be aware and take advantage of the different services that the...

Most Americans are probably not aware that European’s are concerned with the U.S. Presidential elections. After all, Europeans will not have a vote coming this November. Numerous poles of different European citizens show an overwhelming support for the current president, Barrack Obama, over his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney. "If Europeans could vote in November's election, 75% would vote for Obama while only 8% would vote for Romney" (World views). While many ideas and opinions are given for the overwhelming support of President Obama it is mostly due to cultural, historical, and foreign policy views of European.

Welcome back to Washington
Polls before the mid-term elections on November 4th suggested Barack Obama’s party would be beaten, but this was a thrashing. Republicans captured the Senate easily and their majority in the House of Representatives is now the biggest it has been in most Americans’ lifetimes. A Republican candidate in New York was indicted for 20 counts of fraud, but won anyway.
Close-up, the results are even worse for Democrats. They thought they could bin a bunch of tax-cutting, union-bashing Republican governors, but nearly all survived. Instead, Republicans captured governorships in solidly Democratic states like Maryland and Massachusetts. Mr Obama cannot escape the...

This paper outlines a plausible scenario in which the Eurozone fractures in 2012. Events are unlikely to follow
the path precisely as described, given the complexity of the problem and the number of variables which are
continually changing. That said, we feel 2012 is unlikely to end with all the current members still being part of
the Eurozone. Mapping a ‘break-up’ scenario should help readers understand how fragmentation could occur
and therefore assist businesses’ contingency planning. To this end the paper highlights some key events and
when they are due to take place. It also identifies some key...

The right-wing Conservative leader thought to remain prime mister, expecting public gratitude. However, the English vote for parties, not people. There was a demographic impact within Britain that led to the swing of leadership from a more capitalist based party to a more socialist based party.

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...

Reconstruction was a time era, 1863 to 1877, in American history where there was an attempt to resolve issues from the Civil War. It was a period of putting back the pieces. The Confederacy and slavery were demolished and the development of the Constitution strengthened the rights of citizens. The movement tackled the return of southern states that had estranged, the status of previous confederate leaders, and the Constitutional status of the African-Americans. Controversy on how to handle the situations and by the 1870s Reconstruction had been considered a failure for the lack of equally integrating the recently...

Why CSR is Essential in the Real World of Business
By Thomas Lyon
Created 2010-09-20 03:30
In a recent op-ed piece in The Wall Street Journal, my colleague Professor Aneel Karnani explained why he thinks corporate social responsibility (CSR) is at best irrelevant and probably socially damaging.
The heart of his argument lies in the assumption of a neat separation between markets and politics. In this idealized world, politics can be counted on to deliver the regulations needed to rein in corporate greed and malfeasance. Then corporations can safely be left in the hands of managers whose sole interest is maximizing...

Lowering the Legal Drinking Age
There are many controversial topics in today’s news involving the younger generation. One of the most talked about topics is lowering the legal drinking age in the United States. Lowering the drinking age could have a really good impact on society as a whole. Although there are people that believe that lowering the age limit will have a really bad effect on the US, the good outweigh the bad. The drinking age being at 21, makes those underage look at alcohol sort of like the “forbidden fruit,” making them want to drink even more, sort of as a rite of passage.
Lowering the drinking age to 18 seems almost undeniable...

In the day and age we live in, it almost seems like celebrities run our world at times. Social media is to blame for that I believe, as it has become an everyday necessity. Naturally on these social media sites like Twitter and Facebook we like to follow our favorite actors, musicians, athletes, etc. and their opinions, while they may not matter to us, are without a doubt at least seen due to the sheer number of followers. Is it right for us to blindly follow the opinions of someone based of social status? Of course not. In fact, Ignacio Gatti, the author of the article “Celebrities: Why Do They Have So Much Influence?”, went as...

To What Extent Are Caucuses an Appropriate Means of Selecting Candidates
Although most states hold primaries, caucuses are another way political parties nominate candidates for election. Caucuses are a series of meetings held across a state. At these meetings, party members discuss the candidates, and then openly vote for state delegates who represent the candidate they support. Those state delegates, in turn, choose delegates to attend the national convention, where they are expected to support the candidate whom they had pledged to support.
One reason why caucuses are an appropriate means of selecting a candidate are that caucuses could reinvigorate interest in the nominating...
