...Setting Our Children Up for an Unhealthy Lifestyle Raymond S. Jackson Professor: Gabriel Smith ENG 215 31 August, 2012   The United States is facing a growing obesity epidemic. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Obesity now affects 17% of all children and adolescents in the United States - triple the rate from just on generation ago” (CDC.gov 2012). Is it the children’s fault? No! The fault lies with our society, its leaders, mentors, adults, and parents. It is up to the older generation, to properly teach our children the rights and wrongs of life, and today, we are teaching them the wrong way to eat. Public School Lunch Programs are teaching them that processed foods, high sugar drinks and snacks, are part of a balanced diet, and this is setting up our children for a lifetime of health issues, and adding to an already elevated obesity problem in the United States. Our society, public school system, and parents themselves are setting up our children for an unhealthy lifestyle and a future of health problems by teaching them unhealthy eating habits and feeding them unhealthy food. The days are long gone of the “Farm to Table” cooking methods in our schools that our older generations depended on. Today, we rely on processed foods that are full of additives, fats and sugars. The National School Lunch Program was created by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), when President Harry S. Truman signed the National......

Justifying the Bill of Rights

...Justifying the Bill of Rights Professor Maria Toy, J.D. LEG107 The amendments to the United States Constitution play an important role in the history, politics and law of our country. When the Bill of Rights was originally proposed to the First Federal Congress in 1789 by James Madison, the intent was for the amendments to be integrated into the original text of the Constitution. As we now know, Madison’s idea did not prevail and Congress decided the first ten amendments and the subsequent seventeen be appended (BYU Journal of Public Law [Volume 25], January 1, 2011). The amendments are an integral part of the Constitution, the framework of the incomparable American justice system that has great impact on the legal system and political climate of the United States. Each of the amendments was written either to overrule a Supreme Court decision, to force societal change, or to revise details of the existing Constitution. The Constitution is an evolving document that some believe is “a living constitution that was written so it could adapt to a changing nation” (Huey-Burns, 2010). Additionally, many of the modern day issues we face such as same-sex marriage, healthcare and insurance policy, and immigration reform, have deep constitutional roots. Amendments are crucial because they give us a mechanism to update and reflect changes in time and public opinion. The process of amending the Constitution fulfills a crucial part of the checks and balance system of......

Website Evaluations

...WEBSITE EVALUATION Not every church will have every ministry. If they do not have a particular ministry, just indicate this in the space provided. Church #1 Name: Saddleback Community Church Church #1 Website: www.saddleback.com 1. Ministry is…praying for others. a. Does the church have a prayer ministry? What does it look like? Saddleback Community Church does have a prayer ministry that is fairly easy to get to. It is located under Care & Help and listed as Prayer Ministry. My only negative belief is that the main page has too much going on with to many other pages from it that it can be distracting and hard to find what you want if you are not sure where to look for it. Otherwise, they Prayer Ministry page itself is great as it is simple and easy to use. They have a simple message about the ministry, a number to call if you need help or to submit a request, and a Prayer request form on the page you can fill out and submit allowing for many different avenues to submit a request to them. 2. Ministry is…following Jesus’ example by practicing spiritual mentoring and multiplying. a. Does the church have a strategy for evangelism? After reviewing the website, you can tell that the ministries are built (including the training offered) around evangelism. However, there is no specific strategy layed out on the website about evangelism for the church. The closest I could find was a reference to Rick Warren’ s book “The Purpose Driven Life”. b. Does the......

Justifying War

...justifiable or unjustifiable sexual behavior. In a sexual relationship using these principles, both persons should do that which is acceptable to both persons; each person must put themselves in the shoes of the other. Also, under the Kantianism position, anything is permissible as long as both participants agree. The key concern would be whether or not the agreement is real. Therefore, one must take to issue things that would be morally objectionable. Lying, deceit, and refusal to inform another person of truths are excellent examples. It would be objectionable if a person lied about or refused to disclose his or her marital status, because this information could make a difference with the other person’s decision to participate. Sex with children would also be morally unacceptable because they cannot fully consent to it. Rape or physically forcing sexual relations is unacceptable because the victim is definitely being forced against her or his will. These and other matters are also relevant for consequential arguments regarding sexual behavior. In regards to a consequentialist point of view, decisions would be made by determining who would benefit or suffer and the type of benefits of sufferings. Also, according to this view is the better consequences would be preferred. When bad consequences outweigh good consequences, it is problematic for this view. Negative physical, psychological, or social consequences would have to be considered. A relevant physical......

Justifying Fiduciary Duties

...McGill Law Journal ~ Revue de droit de McGill JUSTIFYING FIDUCIARY DUTIES Paul B. Miller* Fiduciary duties are critical to the integrity of a remarkable variety of relationships, including those between trustee and beneficiary, director and corporation, agent and principal, lawyer and client, doctor and patient, parent and child, and guardian and ward. Notwithstanding their variety, all fiduciary relationships are presumed to enjoy common characteristics and to attract a core set of demanding legal duties, most notably a duty of loyalty. Surprisingly, however, the justification for fiduciary duties is an enigma in private law theory. It is unclear what makes a relationship fiduciary and why fiduciary relationships attract fiduciary duties. This article takes up the enigma. It assesses leading reductivist and instrumentalist analyses of the justification for fiduciary duties. Finding them wanting, it offers an alternative account of the juridical justification for fiduciary duties. The author contends that the fiduciary relationship is a distinctive kind of legal relationship in which one person (the fiduciary) exercises power over practical interests of another (the beneficiary). Fiduciary power is a form of authority derived from the legal capacity of the beneficiary or a benefactor. The duty of loyalty is justified on the basis that it secures the exclusivity of the beneficiary’s claim over fiduciary power so understood. Les obligations fiduciaires sont essentielles......

Children

...Children learn so quickly and even when they are exposed to a second language just once a week they still learn a lot. Within the first term they are able to recognise, understand and repeat what they have learnt. Three ways to support children learning a second language in the classroom: Use pictures or real objects when introducing new vocabulary words or concepts to help make connections in two different languages (example English and Spanish). Have a “show and tell” time when children bring favorite things from home. Use these opportunities to learn about what interests each child and what happens at home. Build on this knowledge to introduce new words and expand the child’s understandings. Be consistent and try to use the same words to say the same thing each time. Use a number of strategies, involving both verbal and non-verbal skills. Two ways to support the families of children learning a second language; I would assist the students in class with making flashcards to use at home. For many flashcards, visual aids such as pictures from magazines, drawings or even printed clip art can enhance comprehension and memory. Second I would get information from the community that they live in that would also support families. One example of a resource you can use to help plan for children learning a second language, with a summary and justification of your choice: ESL resources for English teachers can be found here, including printable flashcards, worksheets, lesson plan......

Because many people don’t read entire books cover to cover, you also want to have reference points and contact information in multiple places in your book. The contact points should be pared up with different free offers or resources because different offers will appeal to different people. In many cases, publishers fight you on this process of connecting with the reader and referring them to websites because they don’t want you to take them (the publisher) out of the loop. The publisher believes they have created this opportunity for you and when the time comes they may produce another book for you, which the reader will buy.

Justifying Military Intervention

...Justifying Military Intervention Some of the most difficult decisions that United States policymakers are faced with are those regarding when, where and how the United States should exercise military force. Most people feel that military force may be used if a vital interest of the United States is threatened. “The difficulty lies in getting people to agree on what constitutes a vital national interest” (Military Intervention). In addition, there will be disagreements over the costs and benefits in intervening in a particular region and what type of military or political action should be carried out on the region. From a domestic perspective, almost every United States citizen would agree that an attack by a foreign country on the United States is a direct and serious threat to national security. In addition, if an organization or country attacked a nation which the United States has a security agreement with, a retaliation from the United States military and NATO would see no disagreements from Americans and the United States friends. Where disagreements can arise is when the situation does not pose an immediate threat to U.S. security but could imperil it in the future, such as when a region becomes unstable and the instability may lead to wider conflicts. Another area of debate emerges over issues of human rights and humanitarian efforts. The United States is the most powerful democratic nation on Earth. Does that mean we always have a vital interest in promoting human......
