How did Capitalisim Undermine Traditional Social Systems in Nations?

To What Extent Did Capitalism Undermine Tradional Social Systems in Industrially Developed and Undeveloped Nations?

In European society, there were 3 classes that were based on a person’s job, education, and financial status. “The wealthy elite constituted only 5 percent of the population but controlled between 30 and 40 percent of its wealth. (Duiker – 7) “Common bonds were created between the wealthy and the aristocrats. The sons of wealthy bourgeois families were admitted to the elite schools dominated by the children of the aristocracy. This educated elite assumed leadership roles in the government and the armed forces. Marriage also served to unite the two groups. Daughters of tycoons gained titles, and aristocratic heirs gained new sources of cash. When the American heiress Consuelo Vanderbilt married the Duke of Marlborough, the new duchess brought $ 2 million (European = approximately $10 million American) to her husband.” (Duiker – 7)

Defining and Researching Globalization

In this paper I will discuss Globalization. First, I will properly define the term Globalization, then I will analyze research of Globalization; the power of Globalization in our world, the advantages and dis-advantages of Globalization.

Globalization is defined as an, “international free market”. It is a tool to keep us all connected in trade markets around the globe. Goods and services are often able to reach places in terms of exports, imports and manufacturing through Globalization (Infed). Globalization has allowed economies to grow rapidly, whereas before Globalization it wouldn’t have. Globalization is essentially a force that marketing uses to push goods and services (Infed). Throughout my research, I learned while Globalization has often leaded to growth and prosper for some economies; it has also hindered many economies. No one can deny how Globalization has revolutionized the market by expanding it. However, in developing countries they don’t seem to gain much but the minimum income earned from manufacturing these goods and services (2003, Brookings).

Discussing the Relationship between Nursing and Technology

Relationship Between Nursing and Technology

To date, nurses have rarely been “at the table” in regard to developing much of the biomedical technology that affects their practice. Nursing most often inherits or receives technology developed by other discipline. Medical technology is NOT nursing technology, and yet it is most often imposed on nurses. At point of patient care, nurses use technology to improve the quality/client care and generate data about nursing outcomes. The need for nursing informatics is clear, as is the need for nurses to embrace technology and care.

Despite such developments there are several factors that may be contributing to a technology lag:

Italian Music - Music and Politics Under Fascism

Paper on Italian Music

What was the relationship between music and politics under fascism?

The political culture of fascism was very contradictory: on one hand the regime seemed to tolerate the modern view and yet on the other hand they were extremely strict and kept a tight control on all artistic aspects. Historians of culture, have come to recognize that fascism encouraged both modern as well as anti -modern trends. In Italy, fascism forced that idealized expressions of national traditions be safely immunized from foreign or avant-garde influences. The self-policing of the musical community was more important than ideological pronouncements of party officials. In Italy it was more artists and critics who sought to mobilize the regime to enforce their own rivalries. The fascist regime was scared to be criticized and so music became filtered and censured. They utilized music to mobilized the population, a good example was the fascist song “ Facetta Nera”. Music was a form of social control, and because of that a lot of music was rejected especially American music as Jazz.

The global financial crisis which triggered by the fall of the investment bank Lehman brother has passed more than a year.

Blood Lines by Rendell Ruth - Topic and Theme Discussion

Blood Lines by Rendell Ruth

Main Topics/Themes in the Story:

Looking for something to live for. We can definitely see that the main character's behavior is influenced and derived from the fact that she is in a search for meaning. She (Angela) is looking for the excitement, for reasons to get up in the morning and go to work.

Trust. The idea of trust is presented in the story when referring to Angela. She is considered to be trustworthy by her surroundings, but the narrator shows us that she is not as honest and trustworthy as everyone expected and considered her to be.

Morality. The issues regarding trust generate issues regarding morality. How do we handle this contradiction between the real Angela, and the Angela everyone believes in? How can she live with this dissonance? What makes us question Angela's morality?

Discussion of the topics:

I think that the two most important topics in this story are the issue of looking for meaning, and the ideas regarding trust. I believe that "trust" and "morality" have many aspects in common and are strongly related to one another, as I elaborated in part 1, and this is why I will refer to both as "trust issues".

More Than Just Another 'Whodunit'

How has your Family History, Culture, or Environment Influenced Who you Are?

How has your Family History, Culture, or Environment Influenced Who you are?

I remember vividly the day I spent picking strawberries with my grandfather. I was twelve years old and my family had just moved back to Florida after living in Iceland for three and a half years. My Pappy was a tall, tattooed, skinny old sailor with wispy white once red-blonde hair that, in his youth, had suggested his Scotch-Irish temper. He loved beer and baseball and wouldn’t hesitate to light a fire under a wayward male cousin of mine, but that fiery temper never fell on me, I was his favorite grandchild. “Bridgette,” he’d say, “I love all my grandbabies, but from the day you were born you’ve always been my girl.” I’d always blush fiercely in response and hug him tightly. I’d missed him terribly during our tour in the land of fire and ice.

Personal Characteristics and Motivating Factors that Led you to Pursue the Profession of Physical Therapy

Essay Topic: Which personal characteristics and motivating factors have led you to pursue the profession of physical therapy?

My sneakers echoed off the linoleum as I jogged down the hallway at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. As a military dependent and high school volunteer I bounced from department to department in the largest military hospital outside of the United States, a wonderful opportunity for an undifferentiated youth interested in helping people. I was returning from a supply run as I rounded a corner and nearly toppled into somebody walking gingerly down the ramp. I hit the breaks hard, and landed in an unceremonious heap on the linoleum. The young GI, I had just narrowly avoided, had been walking down the ramp with a crutch in one hand and his IV pole in the other, he was now bent over in laughter.

Together We Can Stop Human Trafficking

Human trafficking starts at about 12-14 years of age and about two children are kidnapped every two minutes. Some of these children are brainwashed into becoming child soldiers. Sadly, there are 1.39 million victims of human trafficking with only one to two percent of the victims ever being rescued and only one in 100,000 of the traffickers ever convicted. Victims are drugged to obey, serve 40-110 customers a day, and if they don’t obey on the drugs, they are usually killed. Not only are they forced into sex for money they also have to deal with rape, beatings, constantly being threatened, malnutrition, sleep deprivation, Hepatitis B and C, AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases. One fourth of the victims are from Southern and Eastern Europe with Greece being called “the center of trafficking in Europe”. Human trafficking is the second largest global organized crime of today and brings in $12 billion/US each year.
