The Deadly Date
The Deadly Debate
Gun Control has been at the forefront of many debates due to the increase of deadly shootings. Over the past several years, there have been multiple mass casualty shootings, and as the number of shootings increased, United States citizens began the debate of whether tighter gun control laws would prevent these shootings. In this debate, we will address the reasons supporting gun control and the reasons opposing gun control. Americans have a choice and this choice will be debated below.
America was founded on the principle of freedom and the rights of an individual to live in a nation built by the people, for the people. The government has begun...

The libertarian view is that “by right every individual is in charge of his or her own life. We all have the right to live as we choose, as long as we don’t infringe on the rights of others to live as they choose. In particular, we have rights to life, liberty and property, and each of these rights serves as a “no trespassing” signs against interference by governments as well as others individuals. The only role of the government is to protect those rights.” (John Hospers)
These civil rights are strongly supported by libertarians that argue gun regulations are unconstitutional. The libertarian argument against gun control is simple; the government is infringing us of our rights. As the...

Dr. Rockel Etienne
Unfortunately there was a terrible tragedy that occurred on December 14th 2012 that would change the world forever. This wasn’t any school shooting that could compare to ones in the past but labeled more as a mass murder. It had taken place at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newton, Connecticut where twenty children and six adults were fatally shot (Karl, Dwyer, & Bruce, 2013). The 20 year old man, Adam Lanza was help responsible for the shooting and killings when he then turned the gun on himself (Karl, Dwyer, & Bruce, 2013). This event has left out country weeping, broken, and frightened for such a...

Downside to Gun Control
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could no longer protect your family, yourself, and help in being part of the militia? Well that’s the direction some of our politicians are trying to go towards. I am talking about the negative results that imposing harsh gun control laws and regulations would bring if the government passes gun control laws. I am going to talk about three reasons why. First, crime rates would go up. Second, it is in the second amendment where it says we have the right to protect our rights and families. Thirdly, the second amendment protects us against our own government.
In today’s society there are people who obey the law and...

The Controversy of the Second Amendment of the Constitution
997 words (2.8 double-spaced pages)
The Second Amendment to the Constitution(Second Amendment) of the United States of America(USA) is one of the most controversial. The Second Amendment specifically grants that, "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed"
The way that an individual interprets the wording of the Second Amendment influences their point of view on who has the right to "keep and bear arms" (Amendment 2). The controversy brought on by the Second Amendment is because the Second Amendment does not clearly define whom "the people" are. This ambiguity has...

The second amendment states that we as citizens have the legal right to bear arms and protect our families .Our current gun laws should not be made more strict because ,gun control laws only keeps ‘the good guys from purchasing firearms, bad guys will always have ways of getting weapons , whether it be from the black market , across borders or even on the street; new gun laws won’t do much in stopping them; and no legitimate study in the us has ever shown that gun control has any positive impact on crimeThree robbers entered a Commerce City, Colo., residence, one of them pulled a knife, according to officials.

“Five myths about gun control”
By Robert J. Spitzer, December 21, 2012
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...

In this article, the special interest group, known as the National Riffle Associates (NRA) is regarded by its critics as a lobbying force. “NRA and bad law block a way to catch killers.” (Amitai) The criticism the NRA receives in the article is warranted. The special interests group was known to have been vitally involved with activities that could have immediate impacts on universal “public interest” for the safety of our family and children. The platform the NRA takes for its activities is most alarming.

One December 9, 2011, Officer Larry and Officer Byron pulled up next to each other talking when they noticed a black window tinted Tahoe approaching them. The vehicle appeared as if it was going to head straight until it noticed the two officer’s cars on a side street, which it then slowed down, and turned around. This of course made Officer Larry and Officer Byron very suspicious. It was approximately 3:10 AM, which made it even more suspicious as they were on a side street. The officers, both driving separate vehicles, went to follow the black vehicle. However, it rapidly accelerated in speed, turning the next corner and again accelerating. At this point, the officers then turned on their...

US v. Lopez (1995)
Is the Gun Free School Zones Act an unconstitutional exercise of Congress’s power? This case was based on the commerce clause. Alfonso Lopez walked into his San Antonio high school carrying a concealed weapon, violating a Texas law that banned firearms in schools. But the next day those charges were dropped and he was then charged with offending a federal law: The Gun Free School Zones Act. He was indicted and found guilty, and sentenced to six months in jail. He challenged his conviction saying that the federal government had no control in education, but the federal government said that it had the authority to ban guns in schools under the commerce...

Materials and Processes in Design
Chapter 15 Case Problem 1: Welding Thin Materials
I have to disagree with both, the experienced welder and the production supervisor. Arc welding is not the ideal process for thin metals. It takes many years for a welder to acquire the skills to arc weld thin metal and ever the most experienced welders mess up and ruin product. TIG welding would work with the thin metal but will take a lot longer and cost a lot more. It also takes the longest to master. Gas MIG (GMAW) is the process I recommend for the thin metal. I will explain the three processes in the following paragraphs.

“Bowling for Columbine” Film Analysis
On April 20, 1999, many people’s lives drastically changed. An incident that occurred in Littleton, Colorado created a jaw dropping event that disrupted all of America. It also stopped Michael Moore right in his tracks. Not long after the incident, Michael Moore decided to make a documentary called “Bowling for Columbine,” a film that acknowledged many important points that are usually ignored and overlooked. This documentary focused on a school shooting that never should have happened. This tragic incident lead Moore to ponder many questions and create an extremely interesting documentary.

There is no doubt that various books and experts can give us many theories as to the
causes of juvenile delinquency, including one's economic background, substance abuse, peer
groups, repeated exposure to violence through the family circit, increased availability of firearms
and media violence, however, I feel that the number one cause of juvenile delinquency is the
breakdown of families, including lack of parental control over children. It is ironic that
one must have a driver's license to operate a car, a permit to own a gun and even a license
to own a pet such as a cat or a dog, but one does not have to have training or a license in order to
become a parent. Without...

The Civil War
By: Anthony Green
I chose to do a picture of the American Civil War. The picture I chose is of a battle between the union and the confederacy or north and south. The picture shows how severe the war truly was between the two sides. The north is running up a hill while the south is running down. Both sides have guns and swords drawn, and gun smoke everywhere, people dying on both sides. Horses getting shot, flags waving, and everybody seems to be yelling and screaming....

The first world war began in the year 1914. There are several factors believed to have triggered the war. The assassination of the Austrian archduke and his wife immediately triggered the war. He was assassinated by the Bosnian Gavrilo Princip an irredentist serb on 28th June 1914. The world war began on august the same year.
This event just triggered the war. The actual factors leading to the war are complicated. Some of this factors are:
Mutual defence alliances. Throughout Europe countries made alliances. The alliance in countries was to give each other help if needed. Thus if, a country is attacked, the allied countries were supposed to protect them. The alliances that existed...

Ethics and integrity are very important for any law enforcement official. It is what is expected of these officials to perform the highest level of integrity in their everyday work. Integrity is the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. In the Code of Conduct: Article 2: it's states, " In the performance of their duty, law enforcement officials shall respect and protect human dignity and maintain and uphold the human rights of all persons." With that being said; I can't fathom why so many law enforcement officials get away with so much brutality daily. Everyone has morals and ethics, no matter if they are good or bad, you still have them....

Hedda is a character of many qualities, she proves to be very intelligent and also confident with the ability to intimidate most of the characters within the play. She is also tricky in her motives, and in dire need of entertainment to rid her boredom; which has accrued due to the fact that she is a woman in a time that constrained them to the home.

The Western Front was the name applied to the fighting zone, where the British, French, Belgian and later American Armies confronted Germany military powers. The Western Front of World War I opened in 1914, with the German army invading first Belgium, then gaining military control of important industrial regions in France, according to von Schlieffen proposal, which was a breathtaking plan that would defeat both of long-term enemies such as Russia and French. It was considered that Russia would be slow to mobilize it's armies, giving time for Germany to attack France so France would need to be quickly defeated, allowing Germany to pay it's attentions to the Russian forces.

In fact, Jim O’Neill wrote a paper titled, “Building Better Global Economic BRICs”, which is about the emerging economies in the world. The acronym BRIC represents: Brazil, Russia, India, and China (Smith). These global leaders have lived up to expectations and have grown at a much faster rate than the rest of the world. They have been able to lift millions of people out of poverty, including 40 million in Brazil alone.
Will Brazil continue to be part of the BRIC in years to come? A 2010 Goldman Sachs report predicted by the year 2030 the BRIC countries would account...

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...

LIVING WITH PTSD: THE WOUND THAT NEVER HEALS
by C. J.
On a cool September day in 2007, my entire life changed. That day I shot and killed a young man as he attempted to break into my home. The incident took place on a Friday afternoon, and the perpetrator subsequently died in the hospital two days later. My family and friends were there to help me through the ordeal but life soon returned to normal for them. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about my own life. My immediate reaction was a combination of sadness, anger, guilt, fear, and shock about what had happened. Being a US Air Force veteran, I took part in Desert Shield/Desert Storm and never had to pull a gun on anyone. I never...

Interest Groups and Politics
The “interest industry” or Interest Groups is often pointed out as one of the unusual features of the American political system. A structurally weak state is seen as being penetrated by wealthy and vigorous lobbying groups, raising the questions of to whom. Elected politicians are in practice accountable, and how real political power is allocated. While these interest groups are sometimes effective in achieving their own aims, the bias towards business groups suggests that, far from improving policymaking, the influence of interest groups actually worsens it.

since it is very affordable, yet is so misused by the majority such as food giants that use it in
order to hook consumers, the reason for this is that sugar is cheap, sugar tastes good and sugar

With a diverse climate, Liberia’s coastal plains, tropical rainforests, plateaus, as well as low mountains provide...

Managers can use a variety of carrots and sticks to encourage people to work together and accomplish change. Their ability to get results depends on selecting tools that match the circumstances they face.
the primary task of management is to get people to work together in a systematic way. Like orchestra conductors, managers direct the talents and actions of various players to produce a desired result. It’s a complicated job, and it becomes much more so when managers are trying to get people to change, rather than continue with the status quo.

How to Become an Effective Sales Manager

If your business has a strong and achievable sales plan, your sales staff (whether that's you as a small business owner or your employees) will be able to focus on selling to the plan. As a manager of sales people, it's your responsibility to build the sales plan.
Building the sales plan means more than just in-putting numbers into a spreadsheet; and that's why many small business owners and sales managers get stumped and why sales plans are often far from reality. Most sales plans are created with only the sales numbers in mind. But to build an effective sales plan, you need to consider more than the...

The Easter Rising
In Ireland 1916, there was an event known as The Easter Rising. The roots of the Rising lie in the ‘new nationalism’ which emerged in Ireland from the 1890s. Its most significant outcome was the rejuvenation of the Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB). This small, underground, revolutionary body planned and directed the insurrection in 1916. The truly dynamic element was a tiny minority within this organization; they were acting on the old republican principle: ‘England’s difficulty is Ireland’s opportunity’. In August 1915, this group formed the IRB Military Council. It was eventually composed of seven members – Thomas Clarke, Sean MacDermott, Patrick Pearse, Eamonn...

There were many definitions given on what really art means. Some of them defined art as a “skill” and was derived from the Latin word “ars”. Over the years, the actual meaning of Art has changed. In medieval times, it was used to refer only to “liberal arts” as a field of education for free men. But then, no one of this really gives the exact definition of art.
We will try to define art in our own way and understanding. Art is a complex ad effective means of expression of thoughts and emotions of people in a society. We say it complex because it is actual nor it is abstract. Art is a way of...

Reflection Paper: Importance of 180o Rule or Action Axis in TV and Film Production
180o Rule or Action Axis is a basic guideline in film making that states that two characters (or other elements) in the same scene should always have the same left/right relationship to each other. If the camera passes over the imaginary axis connecting the subjects, it is called crossing the line. The new shot from the opposite side is known as reverse angle.1
Below is diagram how the 180o Rule or Action Axis looks like:
The said principle is also based on the exchange of looks between the actors, either from left to right (of camera) or right to left (of camera).

If a man is born blind, he may not appreciate what it means to see the light, but ones his sight is recovered he would definitely not want to be thrown back into perpetual darkness. Darkness, blindness or ignorance are terms that could be interchangeably used to describe the state of Nigeria before the advent of western education. No matter how beautiful or promising an environment may be, it would neither be seen nor appreciated in darkness. Light is needed to appreciate anything good, amend anything that is not good enough or throw away anything that is bad outright. Western education came with light appreciating...

The Good Shepherd is an archetypal model for the priest.

“Indeed, the priest, by virtue of the consecration which he receives in the sacrament of orders, is sent forth
by the Father through the mediatorship of Jesus Christ, to whom he is configured in a special way as head and shepherd of his people, in order to live and work by the power of the Holy Spirit in service of the Church and for the salvation of the world”
This affirmation shows a genuine and deep understanding of the specific ontological link which draws...
