  • Computer Crime - 1,151 words
    Computer Crime In todays society our most valuable commodity is not grain, steel or even technology; it is information. Because of computer networks, just about everyone can now access an astounding range of information. The Internet is international, even though 80 percent of the Internet use occurs in the United States, and a staggering amount of information on every subject imaginable is available for free. Because so many people now have access, computer crimes have become more frequent. Everyone with a computer and a modem can commit a computer crime if so inclined. Anyone, conceivably, could become a "white collar" computer criminal. When the term "white collar" crime came into wide sp ...

  • Conflict Management - 1,290 words
    Conflict Management Organizational Behavior But we cannot avoid conflict, conflict with society, other individuals and with oneself. Conflicts may be sources of defeat, lost life and a limitation of our potentiality, but they may also lead to a greater depth of living and the birth of more far-reaching unites, which flourish in the tensions that engender them. -Karl Jaspers The amount of entropy in corporate America has increased substantially because of two basic reasons. The first involves the immigration of a large and continuous population of ethnic, migrant workers from different corners of the world. These knowledge workers are products of varying, and at times diametrically opposing e ...

Box 61058, Palo Alto, CA 94306 USA 510-651-7483 The pace of scientific progress may be hindered by the tendency of our academic institutions to reward being popular, rather than being right. A market-based alternative, where scientists can more formally "stake their reputation", is presented here. It offers clear incentives to be careful and honest while contributi ...

  • Enlightenment - 618 words
    Enlightenment THE THINKING OF THE SCOTTISH ENLIGHTENMENT THINKERS? The theme of the "unintended and unanticipated consequences of social action" implies that social change occurs through social action without foreseeing the outcome. Scottish Enlightenment thinkers Adam Smith and Adam Ferguson, each provide their own theory of unanticipated effects of human action. Smith's theory is implicitly historicist; Ferguson's by contrast, is empirical and anti-historicist(Smith, 1998:30). In Adam Smith's, "Wealth of Nations", private and egoistic interests are converted into collective social good by an 'invisible hand' which advances 'the interest of society' without intending or knowing it(Smith, 19 ...

  • Founding Fathers - 452 words
    Founding Fathers? The Constitution For a majority of Americans the U.S. Constitution (w/ the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence) is viewed almost as a holy document. These pieces of wood pulp decorated with some borderline poetic text have been elevated to a level which prevents us from drastically changing them for fear of being accused of being blasphemous. While I don't question the true value of these documents, I do question our reasons for keeping them in place. Do we revere these documents because they came from such great men, or is it because we fear what might happen to our society in the event that we do drastically change them. Must the ideals be written down to ...

  • Functionalism - 876 words
    Functionalism Functionalism Functionalism is the sociological theory which holds that each part of society is necessary for the functioning of the social organism. There are several elements in the functionalist paradigm which explain how society functions to maintain the social organism and keep it alive. These elements, or tenets of functionalism are cohesion, integration, solidarity, and equilibrium. These elements explain how society is divided into its different functional parts, with each part dependent on the other, and the amassed parts adding up to the structural whole of society. According to Emile Durkheim there are two kinds of societies with one being simple and mechanic and the ...

  • Gender - 1,859 words
    Gender Definition When studying "gender," the first task is to clearly define what it is not. Gender simply can not be defined by one's anatomy. In other words, gender is not categorized as male or female. Stating this fact is of the utmost importance, because most people would define gender in such a way. In fact, some dictionaries actually define gender as "See sex." So now that I have withdrawn that determinant, I must conclude that gender is something which is determined socially. Unfortunately, the concept is far too broad to have one clear definition. It can be studied in so many different ways, and it is because of this that there are a multitude of theories about it. Learning about d ...

  • Good - 711 words
    Good Education Education is defined as acquiring skills. There are many different ways to be educated and many subjects that can be studied. A good education is one that teaches a student to think. This is proven by Edith Hamilton, Malcolm X, and Adrian Rich in their works to define what they believe about learning and its importance to our world. In Edith Hamilton's essay, The Ever-present Past, she described a good education as one that is modeled after the ancient Greek's ideas. She defines being educated as being "able to be caught up into a world of thought" (752). The Greeks were taught to think. They were cultivated on an individual level so that they knew how to conceive ideas on the ...

  • Good Country People - 1,278 words
    Good Country People Damian Carpenter Woman, Do You Ever Look Inside? There are many themes within Flannery OConnors short story Good Country People. Religion is definitely one of the more prominent themes that the story holds. Like most of OConnors works, it plays a big part in the actions or characteristics of the main characters. This is all on the surface however. The more important and less accentuated theme is the various facades the characters create for themselves. These facades prevent them from facing their true grotesque selves. These facades also hide their weaknesses that they have no wish to face ort just cant understand. People must be comfortable with every aspect of themselve ...

  • Immigration In America - 1,282 words
    Immigration In America Immigration in America Most Americans place their pride in being apart of a country where a man can start at the bottom and work his way to the top. We also stress the fact that we are "all created equal" with "certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness." (Jefferson 45) During the early 1900s white Americans picked and chose who they saw fit to live in America and become an American. "Those that separate the desirable from the undesirable citizen or neighbor are individual rather than race." (Abbott 307) In the 1900s the desired immigrant was one who spoke English and customs who were similar to ours. Whereas an undesira ...

  • Juvenile Boot Camps - 1,165 words
    Juvenile Boot Camps Juvenile Boot Camps: The Modern Alternative Juvenile delinquency is not anything new; it is a problem that has plagued our society for the past two hundred years. Juvenile delinquency is believed to have started with the emergence of industrialization and urbanization. This same phenomenon later appeared in other countries as they began to modernize as well (Bernard 6). In the past juvenile care facilities and juvenile detention centers attempted to contain the problem of juvenile delinquency. These past attempts have failed. The modern alternative, juvenile boot camps, might turn out to be an effective way of combating the problem. The Juvenile Justice System plays a maj ...

  • Juvenile Boot Camps - 1,164 words
    ... ey may prove to be more effective once improved on. Juvenile boot camps run on a short term cycle and therefore are less costly. This is another goal of juvenile justice system; to reduce the cost of incarceration by having short term cycles with boot camps. It costs around ninety-three dollars to incarcerate a juvenile in a boot camp per day (Zaehringer 2). A ninety day cycle costs right around $8,370. For a one hundred eighty day cycle it costs $16,740. Most other juvenile institutions run on one or two year cycles. This makes the cost much higher. The cost differential for a year in boot camp ($33,480), and a year of treatment at a juvenile care facility ($47,400); is about $14,000, p ...

  • Leader Leadership - 500 words
    Leader - Leadership How would you describe a leader and/or leadership? A significant part of effective leadership is the close connection between the leader and the follower, which often determines the success of the leader's mission. Unfortunately, this leader-follower relationship cannot be created according to some simple formula. Young leaders of today face special challenges as they try to communicate and interact with their followers and potential followers. By exploring global perspectives, human diversity, and ethics, young leaders can take yet another step forward in their development and preparation for twenty-first century leadership. Globalization has many implications for leader ...

  • Manhattan Project - 1,922 words
    Manhattan Project Manhattan Project In the early morning hours of July 16, 1945, the first ever nuclear explosion took place in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The explosion was the first test of the most destructive weapon ever known to man, and was the result of almost six years of research and development by some of the world's top scientists. This endeavor was known as the Manhattan Project. Less than a month after the test, which was known as Trinity, the United States dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan, three days apart, which forced the Japanese to surrender. The story of the Manhattan Project is an abysmal subject, as is the effect of the Manhattan Project on international politics, and both ...

  • Plato On Justice - 1,962 words
    Plato On Justice Plato (428-347 BC) The Greek philosopher Plato was among the most important and creative thinkers of the ancient world. His work set forth most of the important problems and concepts of Western philosophy, psychology, logic, and politics, and his influence has remained profound from ancient to modern times. Plato was born in Athens in 428 BC. Both his parents were of distinguished Athenian families, and his stepfather, an associate of Pericles, was an active participant in the political and cultural life of Periclean Athens. Plato seems as a young man to have been destined for an aristocratic political career. The excesses of Athenian political life, however, both under the ...
