LEVY, TAL BERGMAN, et al. "Attitudes Towards Euthanasia And Assisted Suicide: A Comparison Between Psychiatrists And Other Physicians." Bioethics 27.7 (2013): 402-408. Academic Search Premier. Web. 5 Apr. 2014.
This article by Tal Bergman talks about euthanasia and physician assisted-suicide. are terms used to describe the process in which a doctor of a sick or disabled individual engages in an activity which directly or indirectly leads to their death. This behavior is engaged by the healthcare provider based on their humanistic desire to end suffering and pain. The psychiatrist's involvement may be requested in several distinct situations including evaluation of patient capacity when an appeal for euthanasia is requested on grounds of terminal somatic illness or when the patient is requesting euthanasia due to mental suffering. We compare attitudes of 49 psychiatrists towards euthanasia and assisted suicide with a group of 54 other physicians by means of a questionnaire describing different patients, who either requested physician-assisted suicide or in whom euthanasia as a treatment option was considered, followed by a set of questions relating to euthanasia implementation. When controlled for religious practice, psychiatrists expressed more conservative views regarding euthanasia than did physicians from other medical specialties. Similarly female physicians and orthodox physicians indicated more conservative views. Differences may be due to factors inherent in subspecialty education. We suggest that in light of the unique complexity and context of patient euthanasia requests, based on their training and professional expertise psychiatrists are well suited to take a prominent role in evaluating such requests to die and making a decision as to the relative importance of competing…...

Content: Background of the Problem When you adopt overseas you are indeed changing not only your life but the life of the adopted children. You are showing them what it is like to have a lovely home and a family that takes care about you. But why do some of these children still have a hard time adapting to it?

Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, & Neonatal Nursing, 40: 817–818. doi: 10.1111/j.1552-6909.2011.01300.x An official postion statement of the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric & Neonatal Nursing, Retrieved February 15, 2013 at The article deals with the incarceration and shackling of pregnant women. The majority of time pregnant women aren’t shackled down unless the prison officials feel that they will harm themselves, or present themselves as a legitimate flight risk. Nine times out of ten when pregnant women enter the criminal justice system they are less likely to receive prenatal care, and are more likely to experience intimate partner violence, poor nutrition, chronic disease, infectious diseases, mental illness, and drug and alcohol abuse. These are all things that could put the fetus at risk when it comes to birth defects and many other potential damages to the child. The reason for shackling incarcerated pregnant women is to prevent them from harming correctional officers, and/or harming themselves. In the event there is an emergency, shackles may cause unnecessary delays in the administration of potentially lifesaving measures. In conclusion, it’s best that pregnant women are on their best behavior while incarcerated,......

Jennifer gave her knowledge on how hip hop will fail if what is going on continues. The women grew up negative environments, and they don’t tear down the quality of men as they do to them.bbrown During the article, Mclune gives the audience multiple reasons why hip-hop has become so negative over the years. Also explained is how some women do not make the terrible situation any better to the culture in some cases. A ‘socio-economic” explanation is given y Kevin Powell, author of “Notes of a Hip-Hop Head.” Within a few statements, the article begins to give very descriptive issues. Hip-Hop has progressed overtime by using hatred towards women as a way of entertainment. Occasionally, women will show that there must not be any caring about the hatred. Jennifer Mclune provides and example saying “Hip-Hop owes it success to the ideology of women hating.”(Mclune 5) by saying that , she is letting the audience know that the only reason Hip-Hop has made it so far is because of their women hating lyrics. How does one top such a problem? Hip-Hop has came a long way from the way it was first begun. You would think that these “so-called conscious artists” would care about their acceptance into the music industry enough to not be so crucial. The......

Everyone uses water daily, in homes, in businesses, on lawns, and for consumption. Water is an essential part of all of our lives, without it we would not survive. Our water sources however, cannot say the same. Water that was once plentiful is now in short supply and no one ever stops to think why. We just continue to use and use like our water is limitless. We never think as much as we should about the affects we have on our supply of water. What happens if we continue to waste away the most precious resource we have? Allen, L., & Woelfle-Erskine, C.

...Manipulation. (n.d.). Retrieved September 8, 2014, from The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) define manipulation as, “Manipulation is intentional conduct designed to deceive investors by controlling or artificially affecting the market for a security. Manipulation can involve a number of techniques to affect the supply of, or demand for, a stock. They include: spreading false or misleading information about a company; improperly limiting the number of publicly-available shares; or rigging quotes, prices or trades to create a false or deceptive picture of the demand for a security. Those who engage in manipulation are subject to various civil and criminal sanctions.” This definition is the foundation of how manipulation of any sort in business is not only unethical, but is also illegal. Following the definition given by the SEC, one can learn about manipulation in business and the problems it can cause. Goldstein, J. (1992).

...Prof. McCart-Brown – Ethics PHI445 Assignment 1- 09/09/2014 Annotated Bibliography Challenges and Barriers Facing Minorities in Librarianship Diversity is an important challenge for the field of librarianship as the profession does not reflect or represent the United States population and the communities served. Many barriers exist with improvement needed in the areas of recruitment and retention, cultural programs, LIS curriculum, and more career advancement opportunities for ethic minority groups. In its 2007 report Diversity Counts, the American Library Association (ALA) stated 86.5% of its membership as Caucasian and that “credentialed and non-credentialed librarians…are predominately….white”. The recent statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau clearly indicate the demographic changes in the nation will continue to impact librarianship. In order for the profession to remain relevant to the communities they serve, more work is needed to bring minorities into the workforce. The references listed are beneficial for those interested to learn more about the challenges facing minorities and some proactive steps to help increase diversity in the profession.

Public Integrity, 12(2), 161-172. doi:10.2753/PIN1099-9922120204 Gifting, a private act of friendship and charity among individuals that has deep cross-cultural roots, is increasingly seen as a morally problematic practice in many professions. Gifting done within the context of employment is now the subject of regulation in many professions as part of a broader effort to promote independence, impartiality, and objectivity. Based upon a survey of more than twenty professional associations and fields of employment, this commentary examines the historical roots of gifting, why it poses an ethical problem, and how many organizations across the public, private, and nonprofit sectors are adopting policies to address this practice. Overall, three conclusions are reached. First, because gifting......
