Unit 7 Project Part 3: Opposing Sides
My initial position Euthanasia is wrong and should never be legalized

Laws against euthanasia and assisted suicide are in place to prevent abuse and to protect people from unscrupulous doctors and others. They are not, and never have been, intended to make anyone suffer. Activists often claim that laws against euthanasia and assisted suicide are government mandated suffering. This claim would be similar to saying that laws against selling contaminated food are government mandated starvation. In a society as obsessed with the costs of health care and the principle of utility, the dangers of the slippery slope are far from fantasy. Assisted suicide is like a half-way house, or a stop on the way to other forms of direct euthanasia. If terminating life is a benefit, the reasoning goes, why should euthanasia be limited only to those who can give consent? Why do we need to ask for consent? In cases like Schiavo's touch on basic constitutional rights, such as the right to live and the right to due process, and consequently there could very well be a legitimate role for the federal government to play. There's a precedent as a result of the highly publicized deaths of infants with disabilities in the 1980s. The federal government enacted 'Baby Doe Legislation, which would withhold federal funds from hospitals that kept lifesaving treatment from newborns based on the expectation of disability. The medical community has to have restrictions on what it may do to people with disabilities. What would happen if some members of that community are willing to do anything when no restrictions are in place?
Savings to governments could become a consideration. Drugs for assisted suicide cost about $35 to $45, making them far less expensive than providing medical care. This could fill the void from cutbacks for treatment and care with the…...

...For this assignment I have chosen 3 different tattoo shops. I have chosen these three shops because I love all different types of art work and I could see myself working at a shop just so that I could see the different types of art every day. I don’t want body art to define a person or what they do. Not everyone that has a tattoo is a druggie, someone who is in and out of jail all the time or a no job loser. I see that as a marketing manager for any of these three shops I could change some things that could help out the businesses out by getting more clients into the doors and no just have a word of mouth reputation but have a good community reputation and known to be the most helpful tattoo shop around if you are thinking about getting that first tattoo. Some of the things that could be done range from being really simple and easily fixed to some more out there plans and ways to be involved with the community and other business around. Some of the things are fixing the already up and running websites, making sure that the shop is considered clean and not a dive place to receive a tattoo. From that we get into hiring more help around the shop and minor fixes to insure that the shop has its best foot forward no one wants a tattoo parlor to seem off in anyway most of all those first time customers. They need to be informed and know all the pros and cons of the type of tattoo and its placement. This leads to the big steps and being more involved in the community by......

...American Intercontinental University Topics in Cultural Studies- Cultural Syncretism Unit 3 Project Jenifer A. Jones If cultural syncretism had taken root in China or India, things would be as they are today. Syncretism is the integration or amalgamation of contradictory religious beliefs which then forms a new religious philosophy. Syncretism mostly takes place when foreign beliefs are introduced to an indigenous belief system and the teachings are blended. There are so many variations of religion today; people are divided. First things first, not all religions are equally open to economic or environmental change. Depending on how language and text is interpreted or translated, it could be a measurable plain to the adaptability of a religious tradition. This is not the case with Buddhism, Confucianism or Hinduism; India does not have a structured religion under Hinduism. It’s actually under a loosely structured belief causing it to be resilient and tenacious enough to survive and expand. China on the other hand is opposite of this. The Confucian belief and/or tradition were established to be the source of value and modernization for material gain. As there were various interpretations for one religious belief, no counter opposing philosophy ever existed. Buddhism and Hinduism concentrated on the work culture as part of the religious paradigm. Indian and Chinese thought and culture were divided by more than religion; it was divided by language, graphics, intellect......

...started. I got myself into therapy and decided until I was completely mentally healthy, I would not date anyone. I started researching my education and where I would go to college, got enrolled and began a goal I had wanted for most of my life, Getting my degree in Psychology. Seek contexts that support personal change-I had given up the bar scene many years ago when I had my children, so staying away from these outside influences is not hard. I did change my phone numbers so my ex could not contact me and I began really focusing on my education. I also started spending more time with my mother who is honest with me about how the world might view me. I always ask for her opinion and she gives me open and honest communication. 3. If you applied these guidelines, how might you be more effective if you attempted to create the same change in your self-concept today? I wish I could have taken this class in high school. I think my life would have turned out much different. I am glad to see however it looks like I was able to start on the right path finally by myself. This certainly reinforced my thoughts that I was finally doing the right thing! 4. What is the most significant thing you have learned from this assignment? I have learned that I am indeed on the right path to making my own personal self-concept the way I have forced it to appear to the world for many years. I am happy to see that I am on the right path and I will use the skills I......

En1420 Project Part 3

...Project Part 3 Michael Sherman EN1420 For a working woman, maternity leave is a standard part of giving birth. Physically, the new mother needs that time to recover from the birthing process, but there is an emotional reason, too. Experts preach over and over that for those first few weeks of a baby’s life, it needs the interaction and touch of its mother to help with bonding to start their development on the right track. Shouldn’t the father be part of that process as well? Shouldn’t the father of the new child be able to take paternity leave from work? I believe they should, not only to bond with the child, but to help the mother with her recovery and to coordinate visitors, appointments and any errands that may be needed. Some people have a stigma that the mother is the one responsible for raising the child from birth. I respectfully disagree. I believe the father should be as much a part of a baby’s first weeks as the mother. Why should a father be robbed of the intimate bonding time with his child just because he didn’t physically give birth to them? I feel this would help the father take better care of the child when the mother returns to work, especially if the father is home at different times than the mother. Having time at home bonding with their father will help the child recognize him when their mother is not around and put them at ease. Studies have also shown that fathers who are home on paternity leave are more likely to be directly involved......

Antivirus software prevents infiltration and/or stops an attack completely. It will check a set of coding against a database of virus codes. It is important to use a well stocked virus database source. Strong passwords are typically ten to fourteen characters in length, a mix of numbers, symbols, upper, and lower cases lettering. Patterns, names, and identifiable information should be avoided (HostingHelpers, 2008). Critical updates include receiving security updates from an online source. These are done in forms of patches and/or updates that will correct coding, fix exploitable code, and a wealth of other things. These are vital to working with several applications. Firewalls are able to block unwanted traffic. These can help with security and keep random connection attempts form using up server and system resources (HostingHelpers, 2008). Firewalls Firewalls are very resourceful. Depending on the size of the company and users, choosing the correct firewall can be critical. There are many firewalls out there and companies that produce them both freely and paid. You...

Tasks You need to: Make recommendations whether the organization should use a custom kernel, compile stock kernels from sources, or use a vendor-supplied kernel. Explain the pros and cons of each of the kernel options and support your recommendations with a valid rationale. Submission Requirements Format: Microsoft Word Font: Arial, Size 12, Double-Space Citation Style: Chicago Manual of Style Length: 1–2 pages Due By: Unit 8 Self-Assessment Checklist I have recommended the appropriate kernel that can be used by the organization. I have explained the advantages and disadvantages of using each of the kernel options with a valid rationale. The recommendation for First World Bank Savings and Loan’s Linux-based infrastructure in to use a vendor supplied kernel. The reason for this is two-fold; Security & Support. Both of which are essential to the daily inter-workings of the bank industry. With the choices of vendors available (Red Hat, Novell, or Canonical/Unbuntu), there are only two that do a great job regarding the customization for enterprise-ready systems; Red Hat and Unbutu. With these distribution-specific kernels, security issues that are related to them vary.

Project Part 3 - Executive Summary

...Summary of the Project part 3 is regarding the use of a Kernel & Recommended Software Management Plan for Linux, the need to install anti-virus software on Linux servers, & how to manage critical and noncritical security-related updates. Regarding the Kernel used to support the Linux based infrastructure is to use one of the vendors available (Red Hat, Novell, or Canonical/Unbuntu). Of these there were only two (Red Hat & Unbuntu) that are ready for enterprise systems and do a great job with customization. No matter what is chosen (open-source or vendor distribution), the first thing that needs to be done is to update the security. It cannot be stress enough that you must not implement security updates to a “live” network. Any security updates that are sent out by authorized personnel to use on the live network, must first be thoroughly tested inside a virtual “test’ environment. It is mentioned that the stock kernel option (open-source) is not recommended due to the amount of information that is needed to sort through in order for the specific needs of the industry (organization). Because of the work-load involved in sorting through system software that is used, and not all of the system software that is used will be listed. This is a complete waste of time and resources. The second thing mentioned is for a software management plan. It is recommended to use RPM as the software management tool, which forms the core of administration on most systems. The...

...identifying his emotions. “…I finally realized nothing I did mattered.” “I’m going to lose everything. I feel bad, but I can’t do anything about it.” “I’ve just felt too hopeless to talk to anyone.” 2. Identify and explain, using concepts from the text, at least one example of an obstacle to communicating emotions in the situation. Bryce spoke in very general terms when he was describing how he felt. When asked how he was feeling he said that he was “not feeling much of anything.” Our text describes this as speaking in generalities. While we get an idea of how Bryce is feeling we don’t really get the exact feeling. Speaking in generalities doesn’t clearly express feelings because the statements are so vague (Wood, 2011. P180.). 3. Identify and explain at least two examples of irrational beliefs that Bryce holds. Irrational beliefs make it harder to express emotions effectively (Woods, 2011. P186). Bryce has several irrational beliefs that not only affect Todd’s understanding but could also affect his ability to function in his career search. One of these was mentioned when he was describing his employment search. He told Todd that he gave up looking for work because nothing he did mattered and no one wanted him. Our text describes this as helplessness. Having feelings like this can lead to depression (Wood, 2011. P186.). Another irrational feeling that Bryce mentioned was that he was going to lose everything. This is described as “fear of catastrophic......

Humanities Unit 7 Project

...Unit 7 Revolution Era Project I chose to send Bob Marley back to the Revolutionary Era. He was an inspirational Jamaican musician. He advocated for social change. ("Bob Marley Official Site — Life & Legacy — History," n.d.) He never received a Grammy, even though he should have, but in 2001 he was acknowledged with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. He was still a ten when he returned to Trench Town in Jamaica where his musical talent was nurtured. He made his way to the States in 1966. ("Bob Marley Official Site — Life & Legacy — History," n.d.) Bob Marley was a sort of revolutionist in the fact that his music was mostly about stopping racism and colonialism. In his song “One Drop” he say “fighting against ism and scism”. ("Bob Marley Official Site — Life & Legacy — History," n.d.) A monument in Siberia has an inscription that reads “Bob Marley Fighter For Freedom Armed With A Guitar”. ("Bob Marley Official Site — Life & Legacy — History," n.d.) He promoted peace and tolerance. He also believed in smoking marijuana and the good health benefits of it but that is for another time. Part II It is hard to say which role that Bob Marley should play as I see him as a leader, rebel, supporter, and artist. I do believe that I will put him as a rebel and artist. I think that suits Bob Marley best. The first event that Bob Marley will visit is the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The signing of the Declaration of Independence happened on July 4th, 1776. (Sayre,......

The main thing that cannot be stress enough (with both vendor –specific distributions & stock kernels) is that updates need to be thoroughly tested within a “test” environment. Prior to testing, a plan needs to be written up and discussed so that all possible threats are exposed to the system, so that these can be confirmed as mitigated. The key is to test, test, & test the updates prior to rolling them out to a production environment. Stock kernel would be the other choice, but it is not recommended due to the amount of information needed to be sorted through for the specific needs of the banking infrastructure, when doing a security update. This would be extremely time-consuming as not all updates are security specific. The individual would need to sort......

Written Analysis Project Part 3

...The first time he walks in he sees 7 of these violent teens at the Oak Hill Youth juvenile detention facility glued to a TV playing “Grand Theft Auto”. He says that as he watched them play this video game they seemed to be in another world (Moten, 2014). He goes on to describe the interaction with these kids on 3 separate visits, claiming that one kid admitted to him that he would have never gotten into stealing had it not been for the video games. This author, who by the way is a co-founder of a company called Peaceoholics, then describes his child hood and his overcoming of the violent media that surrounded him. One of his friends growing up would quote Tony Montana, Al Pacino’s character in Scarface, right before he committed violent acts, then goes on to say that the media is to blame for glorifying the violence in that movie. The fact that this guy quoted Tony Montana does not mean the movie is why he committed these crimes. He committed these crimes because he is a criminal and not because of a movie he watched. Who you choose to idolize is your choice and you can’t blame others for choices you make. Maybe in the movie “Scarface” Tony Montana is glorified a little and you want to be like him because he has everything, you still know it’s wrong. Also as much as you can argue that his life in the movie is glorified in parts, he still dies in the end because of his choice in life. I don’t see any glory in death. People picking the parts they want to emulate rather......

Ge273 Project Part 2/3

...GE273 Micro Economics Project Part 2 and 3: The Debt Ceiling I would like to start by saying thank you that you would take the time to truly listen to your constituents and hear our concerns and ideas about the economy that we live in everyday. The debt ceiling is something that we must take very seriously. It seems that we are constantly raising our credit limit in order to justify our current spending habits. But is that a good idea? If my credit card company keeps raising my credit limit in order to allow me to continue spending more money, but I never pay down my balance, am I ever truly getting out of debt? During a time when I can financially afford to take on a high balance, raising the limit helps me attain the things that I want and/or need during that time. However, raising the limit is not a permanent solution. At a certain point, I may reach a debt level that I can no longer afford to pay back. That is becoming my concern with the current debt crisis. I fear that we are continuing to raise our credit limit but are not adequately paying back the debt we are accumulating. I feel what is needed for our country is the same thing that any normal family would need to do in order to address overspending; address current overspending habits and begin to implement a better savings strategy. These may be the most effective steps to take in order to truly attack the raising debt problem that may plague this country for generations to come. Life in America......
