When Kids Kill

Recently the number of murders committed by children increased dramatically. This issue is spreading at a fast rate and is touching families, friends and civilians. Children are becoming more sophisticated and are dealing with new, bigger problems at a younger age. Combined with a violent surrounding, dealing with these problems may cause a more disturbed and brutal
“solution” that will be executed by the child. Nothing still shocks as much as a child killing an innocent person or even a parent. Dealing with these children is another problem. Should they be treated as adults or as normal kids and just blame their acts on a childish explanation?
With such a serious and alarming concern, an effective solution is desperately required. A child must be taught what’s good and what’s bad. In these conditions, it is best to put these children in a non-violent juvenile prison where they will face a rehabilitation that will hopefully prevent the recurrence of similar future crimes.

To begin with, there are several reasons that push children to commit such crimes. According to
Heide (2009) a child usually has a tremendous difficulty in accepting that his actions lead to an irreversible result. Many factors may come into place that will cause such behaviors. The psychological side is a major reason in this issue. Children will become dangerous and will most likely commit crimes when they experience difficult and hard conditions in their home places. The problem is that these children who are suffering cannot leave their homes because it is now illegal to do such acts. Plus, if they manage to run away they will face harder conditions due to their shortage of survival skills and necessities like money and experience.
Heide classifies the teenagers who might commit crimes into three types. First, the abused child, who isn’t…...

The Lessons of Life The Lesson by Toni Cade Bambara is a novella set in the projects of New York City in the 1970’s. Sylvia is a street wise kid living in the projects being mentored by a well educated woman named Miss Moore. Sylvia seems to be proud, and smart and is acutely aware of the surrounding in which she lives in. Miss Moore is considered to be a well educated woman in the neighborhood. She feels as if she is obligated to show Sylvia, along with the other children a different way of living. Miss Moore becomes a mentor for the children and decides to take them out on an excursion. The language of the narrative lets the reader become familiar with what kind of neighborhood in which "The Lesson" is taking place. Bambara does not give details on what kind of neighborhood this is but the reader is able to get a picture of it through the language. Even though the story seems to start off very light hearted it takes on and gives very valuable life lessons that can be understood today. Bambara shows the reader that equal opportunity still does not exist in America.   She shows, through Miss Moore and the students, when they realize the bigger lesson, the......

English Term Paper Hamlet

...N V Professor Bayer English 1202 AO 25 April 2011 Revenge and Forgiveness Revenge and forgiveness are the two underlying factors that are present throughout the entirety of William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet: Prince of Denmark. The play is begun with the death of Hamlet’s father, which Hamlet finds to be unsettling from the start. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius then takes over the throne while Hamlet’s mother then marries his uncle. It is then that the ghost of his father, tells Hamlet that the very man who had become king murdered him in cold blood; the ghost brings the idea of revenge to Hamlet’s mind (Shakespeare 1547). While revenge is constantly on his mind throughout the play, there is also the idea that Hamlet must forgive those who have done wrongs to him or his family; this is shown through his dedication to religion. But in the end, Hamlet’s internal need to seek revenge for his father’s death is so great that he is ultimately unable to forgive his uncle. The play begins with the sudden death of Hamlet’s father, and his uncle Claudius, his father’s brother, taking the throne (Shakespeare 1550). Hamlet’s mother chooses to marry Claudius just days after the death of Hamlet’s father, and Prince Hamlet expresses his disgust through his soliloquies, where he exclaims, “Frailty, thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare 1553). After some time, Hamlet is brought out to a forest by two guards who have claimed to see the ghost of his father. After some deliberation, the ghost of......

It was written for internal use in the Artificial Intelligence Center. However, other science departments may find it helpful. You are encouraged to share it with colleagues. 1 What is a term paper or thesis? In the Middle Ages, in order to be admitted to a trade guild, a craftsman had to demonstrate his ability by producing a piece of work, called his masterpiece, for examination by the officers of the guild. He was then granted the title of Master of his trade. When universities were founded, they immediately emulated this practice and began to grant the degrees of Master and Doctor to people who had proved their ability to do scholarly work. A thesis or dissertation today serves the same purpose as a medieval craftsman’s masterpiece. It is proof of ability to do a certain kind of work. Specifically: • To get a doctor’s degree, you must become familiar with current scientific knowledge of your subject, add to this knowledge by making an original discovery, and then report the results in a dissertation. 1 • To get a master’s degree, it is sufficient to make a new synthesis or application of knowledge already available, and report the results in a thesis. • To pass certain courses, you must write a term paper,......

...English 101 “Dreams Converted to Reality” In “The Symbolic Language of Dreams”, Stephen King speaks in depth about his writing process. King has written over fifty novels and sold over three hundred and fifty thousand copies worldwide. Most of us cringe at the thought of re-living some of our worst nightmares, but that’s not the case for novelist Stephen King. He uses his dreams and nightmares to sculpt his stories to his liking. King believes that dreams are the way our minds translate the nature or solution to our problems, and speaks in depth about this connection with his writing process. In “The Symbolic Language of Dreams”, Stephen King reveals that writing and dreaming are closely correlated, and writers prefer routine to achieve a semi-dreaming state. King uses dreams extensively in his writing process. He believes that dreams have a precognitive effect on the story and uses those experiences to bring the eerie feelings to life in his novels. When he was writing “IT”, King reveals that he came to a halt in writing, and needed to come up with something. He fell asleep and had a very scary nightmare; he awoke terrified and delighted, all at the same time. It would be safe to say that we’ve all had dreams reflecting on a current situation or problem, especially ones that weigh on us the heaviest. We can draw a conclusion to our problems from dreams, which is also what he relates to his readers. King describes the writing process similar to digging...

...Social Media, Do They Really Make Us More Social? In today's society, many people of all ages use social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Instagram, and many more through their phones and computers. These social networking sites allow people to find, connect, and have relationships with just about anyone, from a classmate in your English 101 class to the pretty girl or boy you just met in last night's party. Browsing these sites can make you feel connected with others, but such easy, casual connection in an electronic environment has its downside. These social networking sites do not improve the social lives of people, but instead, these sites ruin the social lives of people by creating false sense of connection, bullying, having less privacy, and decreasing people's productivity from the real-world. Ironically, social media sites do not make the social lives of people better. They isolate people from society and causes people to have difficulty communicating with others in the real-world. It is because the bonds that people have online are fake which creates false sense of connection or relationship causing people to struggle communicating with others in the real-world. "It’s true that by eliminating barriers like geography, time of the day, and physical availability for a conversation, these social media make it easier and quicker for people to remain in contact and have relationships with other people"("All this social media might be making...

...In this book and play “The Death of a Salesman”, The main character Willy Loman, is having problems getting and holding onto a job. His whole life has always been a failure and still is proceeding as one. As this story proceeds, Willy is having some inside thoughts about life, and how things are going when it is not really happening at all, it is just all in his head. In the story “The Death of a Salesman”, I do think that the characters are very believable. They all have a personality like no one would think of. They all have very unique characteristics like: stealing, lying, going crazy, and always being miserable. I can relate to all of the characters. There are times when I think that I am in real life, but then snap out of it and come back to reality. Like Willy Loman, I also have tendencies to fail on a daily bases, and to not do my best because of what might have happened earlier in the day. Also, unlike Willy Loman, I do not go crazy, or think up some outrageous thoughts that I always believe to be real. I do fail on a daily basis on things, but as well as Willy, I do not end up failing at jobs or little interviews for small jobs. I do stay sane and get what I need done, unlike Willy Loman, he ends up not realizing things, or he forgets a lot, or he just cannot get down how to do things right.

Term Paper

...A term paper is a research paper written by students over an academic term, accounting for a large part of a grade. Term papers are generally intended to describe an event, a concept, or argue a point. A term paper is a written original work discussing a topic in detail, usually several typed pages in length and is often due at the end of a semester. Origin and clarity of the word[edit] There is much overlap between the terms research paper and term paper. The phrase term paper was originally used to describe a written assignment (usually a research based paper) that was due at the end of the "term" - either a semester or quarter, depending on which unit of measure a school used. However, not all term papers involve academic research, and not all research papers are term papers. History[edit] Term papers date back to the beginning of the 19th century when print could be reproduced cheaply and written texts of all types (reports, memoranda, specifications, and scholarly articles) could be easily produced and disseminated. Moulton and Holmes (2003) write that during the years from 1870 to 1900 "American education was transformed as writing became a method of discourse and research the hallmark of learning."[1] Russell (1991) writes that in the 1910s, "the research paper began to harden into its familiar form" adding that plagiarism and the sale of research papers both became a problem during this time.[2] Plagiarism in the computer era[edit] In the present day an...

...hours on end are nothing but negative. Long term damage is more prevalent in the recent studies than ever before. Researchers are finding that many parents are using the internet and other form of technology to “raise” their children. Thus children are suffering academically in many ways. Technology is taking away from learning skills that are necessary to survive in society. Teachers are seeing more kids without the ability to control themselves, if they do not receive the answers that they want they have a meltdown on a temper tantrum. A large number of children are unable to have a normal conversation that have logged so many hours online, having conversations that they are unable to converse on a normal setting. School administrators are finding that young students are carrying attitude of invisibility. The way that some talk online is completely different from reality, they are “tough” behind a keyboard, but without being taught respect, and the skills to have an educated conversation, we are doing nothing but a disservice to our children. Parents need to realize these harmful effects of technology and make it a priority that their children learn proper socialization skills. Many teachers are seeing a decline on children’s writing and reading skills. (Gee, 2013) In our society today, students are becoming more focused on technological gadgets that they are unable to value their education. Students are easily distracted in class when their phones vibrate or ring. They......

...Money, in and of itself, is nothing. It can be a shell, a metal coin, or a piece of paper with a historic image on it, but the value that people place on it has nothing to do with the physical value of the money. Money derives its value by being a medium of exchange, a unit of measurement and a storehouse for wealth. Money allows people to trade goods and services indirectly, understand the price of goods (prices written in dollar and cents correspond with an amount in your wallet) and gives us a way to save for larger purchases in the future. Money is valuable merely because everyone knows everyone else will accept it as a form of payment - so let's take a look at where it has been, how it evolved and how it is used today. Money, in some form, has been part of human history for at least the last 3,000 years. Before that time, it is assumed that a system of bartering was likely used. Bartering is a direct trade of goods and services - I'll give you a stone axe if you help me kill a mammoth - but such arrangements take time. You have to find someone who thinks an axe is a fair trade for having to face the 12-foot tusks on a beast that doesn't take kindly to being hunted. If that didn't work, you would have to alter the deal until someone agreed to the terms. One of the great achievements of money was increasing the speed at which business, whether mammoth slaying or monument building, could be done. Slowly, a type of prehistoric currency involving easily traded goods......

However Danticat was blessed to have two fathers who loved and taught her the essence of strength. While reading the book “Brother, I’m Dying” Danticat tells a story about her life in Haiti, being raised by her uncle, and her father who lived in America. She later reunited with her father and joined him in the United States. The story shows how two different influences ignited her passion for writing. Uncle Joseph was a man who exemplified courage. Miracin was a man who fought through his sickness. Both men had their own struggles, however, they were able to persevere through them and teach Danticat how to be a fighter, and how to proclaim courage despite adversity. Next Danticat saw her uncle Joseph go to the ends of the earth for a child he raised as his own in hopes to save Marie from the hands of death from another man.
