... e said, should be considered when designing any program for youth: Adolescents are fairness fanatics. Running any adolescent group care program is difficult because adolescents are very sensitive to anything they perceive as unfair, particularly anything that applies to the whole group. Adolescents reject imposed structure and assistance. Adolescents respond to encouragement, not punishment. Although they may change their behavior to avoid punishment, their attitudes and behaviors do not change in response to punishment (Andrews, 1990). The implications of these three factors are that youth will defend themselves against what they see as unfair, regardless of the motivation of the adults ...

... sonable care in hiring also applies to the selection of volunteers, since the purpose of this rule is to assign responsibility for injuries to third persons. A notable case out of Virginia deals directly with the issue of liability for the negligence of a volunteer. In "Infant C. v. Boy Scouts of America, Inc." (391 S.E. 2d 322(Va.1990)), a child and his parents sued both the national and local Boy scouts office for negligently selecting and retaining a volunteer scoutmaster with a criminal record for sexually assaulting scouts in another state, who allegedly molested the child plaintiff. The courts inquiry turned on the selection process itself and found that the evidence supported the ...

- Defoe Moll Flanders - 736 words
Defoe Moll Flanders J Johnson English Novel to 1832 7/10/00 Moll Flanders: Freedom or Fate In New Hampshire I had a Philosophy teacher that used to say, and I believe he was quoting another, People who believe in freewill are ignorant of the reasons of their actions. This quote, in the context of Defoes Moll Flanders, brings about a multitude of questions and discussion. Was Flanders free or was she predetermined to live a wicked and improper life mired in years of penitence? Was the fact that her mother a whore before her enough to dismiss the question? It is, in fact, these questions that persuaded me to abandon my philosophy major and follow my love of literature, but that is a different ...

- Discriminated Criminals - 1,103 words
Discriminated Criminals The Criminal Justice system has always had discrimination in it. Discrimination can come from the police, courts, or even from lawyers. For example, in the Gideon vs. Wainwright case the court ruled that the state must provide a public defender but it did not rule that the public defender must be good or competent. (Too Poor N.Pag.). In most cases where a public defender is provided the defendant loses the case because the lawyer is new or incompetent. Thus the criminal justice system needs reform. The Criminal Justice System discriminates against the economically challenged and minorities because of police discrimination, unbalanced sentencing and incompetent public ...

... ealth) Solutions College administrators often identify student alcohol abuse as one of the biggest challenges they face. Yet, funding for prevention programs, on the increase until 1994, has never averaged more than a few dollars per student, not counting staff salaries. Experts complain that many alcohol education programs seldom involve more than a few posters, some brochures, and an Alcohol Awareness Week, all of which students say are largely ignored. Bill DeJong, director of the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention in Boston, thinks colleges have to change the way they recruit students. If their view books show scenes of small groups socializing rather than ...

- Legalization Of Narcotics - 1,357 words
Legalization of Narcotics Narcotics, or drugs, are substances that affect the bodys functions. They can stimulate the mind, make people depressed, or make them hyper. Marijuana, heroin, LSD, PCP, cocaine, and anabolic steroids are all considered narcotics. Narcotics are illegal in the U.S. Even though drugs are illegal, about 12 million people use them anyway. Many strict laws have been passed against drugs but they seem to have little affect. People still decide to sell or use drugs for recreational purpose. This is why narcotics should be legalized. Before 1914, it was legal to make, sell, or use any type of drugs. Many of the drugs were used for medicinal use. This was before people found ...

- Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind - 533 words
Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind Out of sight, out of mind. Californias Three Strikes law is based loosely on that very philosophy. When someone is a repeat violator of the criminal justice system, the best solution is to just lock him or her away for a life term without the possibility of parole. We should disregard any of the positive accomplishments these individuals have possibly made to society, their families and their ability to change their lives. Possibly the next step is to simply execute these repeat offenders. Why continue to spend the tax money of hard working Americans to support these criminals? Unfortunately, attitudes like the one just conveyed are too common and are fueling the fi ...

- Stereotypes Analysis - 764 words
Stereotypes Analysis Stereotypes "Dumb jocks", "Women dont belong in a professional setting, they belong in the kitchen", "He must be a Jew, just look at his nose." Our society is based solely on face values where we tend to place someone in a category because of his or her actions. Prejudicial notations used to define members of a social or ethnic group are called stereotypes. We stereotype various groups of people, but none like women, different ethnic groups, and athletes. We typically stereotype women on the job. Women normally are associated with jobs such as nurses, secretaries, and tailors. These are jobs in which most people would label as a tender loving care job, which requires a w ...

... ight enhance their playing skills and performance if they lost a substantial amount of weight, the fact is they play pretty well at their current weight. The one absolute essential trait for offensive linemen in the West Coast offense is natural body girth. In addition to girth, offensive tackles in this offense must be very strong and a have a high level of agility. Agility by the linemen in this offense is needed because of the quick three and five step passing game. An offensive tackle should also have strong, long arms to facilitate those blocking tasks involving tasks involving leverage. From a blocking perceptive, however, the timing of the block itself is the critical factor. In a ...
