Paper Discussing the Impact of the End of the Cold War on US Foreign Policy

The destruction of the Berlin Wall in late 1989 marked the start of the end of the Cold War. The Cold War is defined as an ideological and geopolitical struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union. But what its end means to the United States and people around the world? Some people say that without the conflict between these two powers the world would be more peaceful because undoubtedly the United States would be in charge of the whole world. However, some people argue that the collapse of the Soviet Unions marks a shift in the global balance of power so that the world actually was put in a more danger environment than before.

Discussing the Rapidly Growing Tradition of Islam in the United States

During the past four decades, the religious landscape of the United States has undergone radical changes. In the 1950s, sociologist Will Herberg claimed that “the three religious communities – Protestant, Catholic, Jewish – are America.” Today there are over 1,313 different religious groups in the U.S. (Melton 1985). Christianity, until very recently, was considered the only significant religion with which African Americans generally identified. The story is now changing. Today, Islam is a rapidly growing religious tradition in America. In 1980, the number of Muslims in the United States was estimated at 3.3 million; by 1986, that number rose to four million. More recently, estimates range from anywhere between five and eight million. African Americans account for about 42 percent of the Muslim population in the U.S., which is somewhere between four and six million people. Islam is indeed presenting a challenge to the African American communities and the African American Protestant Churches want to know why?

Methods of Interrogation at a US Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay Cuba Deemed as Torture

Torture is defined as anguish of the body or mind, and is looked down upon in many cultures – so why do the people of the United States allow it to happen at a U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba? The methods of interrogation used at this detention camp are inhumane and the people administering and practicing them should cease these tactics and seek a new way of attaining information from detainees.

The Real Benefits of Meditation - A Report on Meditation and the Effects It Has on Humans

The Real Benefits of Meditation - A Report on Meditation and the Effects It Has on Humans

Introduction
The practice known as meditation dates back to over five thousand years ago. Being depicted in Indian scriptures discovered many years later, and very popular amongst the Eastern cultures, it was obvious to the Asian civilization that meditation could truly change a person for the better. Meditation was first developed as a way of “going within yourself” to discover the meaning of life, and was more for religious purposes than anything else (Ayammie 1). While in this meditative state, people started to take note of a feeling of awareness that brought happiness and calmness to those who could successfully achieve this level. What was evident to the East, did not seem so important to people on the other side of the world. Meditation did not spread to the West until thousands of years later, finally making its mark in America in the mid-twentieth century. Though meditation finally did catch on to the West, it is still doubted by many if any actual benefits can come from this practice.

Paper on the Suggestion that Character Desdemona From Othello Suffers at the Hands of a Patriarchal, Male Dominated Society. Or is She a Temptress?

Paper on the Suggestion that Character Desdemona From Othello Suffers at the Hands of a Patriarchal, Male Dominated Society. Or is She a Temptress?

Desdemona is one of the most important characters in ‘Othello,’ not because of what she has done, but what she hasn’t. The simple fact of Desdemona’s innocence from the supposed ‘crime’ (5.2.26) she committed provides a compelling argument for her position as a ‘victim’ of a patriarchal society – she is punished symbolically, when Othello ‘smothers her voice’ according to Ania Loomba, the loss of her voice demonstrating the devastating, inevitable effects of simply being a woman in a man’s society. Certain scenes give the impression of Desdemona playing the ‘strumpet’ with Iago and Cassio, but these, as Loomba suggest, represent merely the ‘contradictions imposed upon her by a racist, patriarchal and bourgeouis society,’ which has a clear definition of the woman’s place in the world and any threat to the man’s rule is extinguished by whatever damning basis it may concoct.

People Should Relinquish Their Right to Privacy to Thwart Criminals or Terrorists : A Con-Argument Paper

Airport x-ray scanners, GPS trackers, and wiretaps, the answers to my sleepless nights! Privacy has become a four-lettered word in America. In the wake of 9/11, the heightened fear of terrorist attacks trumped all ethical and deserved rights of American’s privacy it seems. While I believe this heightened fear continues years after the devastation, and warrants the need to relinquish our right to privacy, some may disagree with me. Some argue it is unconstitutional, it promotes racial profiling and in our judicial system people are innocent until proven guilty. I respect the need to protect the rights of Americans as I sit here an exercise my 1st Amendment right and wave good-bye to my neighbor deploying for Iraq. However, if a terrorist bombs my neighbors, brothers and sisters, then who will be around to read this assignment? So let me address the arguments people may have to relinquishing their right to privacy.

Mexico's Dual System of Private and Public Healthcare Coverage

Mexico's Dual System of Private and Public Healthcare Coverage

Abstract
Most countries have a system in place to care for the sick and injured. Like the United States, Mexico has dual systems of both private and public healthcare coverage, however, Mexico provides for all of its citizens. While there are similarities in health care facilities in the larger cities in Mexico, the smaller, more economically downtrodden areas, lack many sufficient services. What healthcare costs there are, they have been shown to be significantly less than those in the United States, being funded by federal and state level programs but with out of pocket costs still possible for those not participating in either a public or private health plan. With people living longer and in more concentrated groups, there is a need for a sound public health system in place. The public health system provides the citizens with protection from disease through prevention and care. Working together, public and private health sectors in Mexico can effectively manage a majority of the population’s health problems while working towards preventing future harms.

The Familial Dimension of Muslim Women: Survey of Middle Eastern History- Long Research Essay

The Familial Dimension of Muslim Women: Survey of Middle Eastern History- Long Research Essay

To much of the Western world, Middle Eastern society may seem very backward. This is rightfully so in the eyes of the United States, for example, whose culture is much different from theirs. Keeping this in mind, many stereotypes have been developed as a result. For example, Muslim women (esp. those residing in the United States) tend to be thought of as second-class citizens in terms of their rights, privileges, roles, and status. Where the developers of these stereotypes are a bit off is in how they are developed with little or no understanding of the Muslim culture. This essay seeks to, with any luck, quell some of those stereotypes and myths. Before we enter the world of Muslim women, one thing must be understood and proven. The rights of Muslim women in the familial dimension are equal to that of men but not their roles and statuses are a bit different in three main ways.

Essay on the Novel On Lying by Sissela Bok

Essay on the Novel On Lying by Sissela Bok

The most dangerous and damaging weapon in society is not a blunt object or automatic firearm; but rather its origin lies within each and every one of us. When they are released into the world they have the potential to form daggers that penetrate straight to the heart, even though one may not realize it until much later. Lies are the source of immeasurable pain, corruption, crime and even injustice. Sissela Bok’s “On Lying,” examines the dangers that lies inflict on society. While the majority of the time lying is reprehensible, there is always an exception to every rule. Lies that are spoken with intention to cause harm are malicious and evil, where as certain situations require lying .

Persuasive Essay on Same Sex Marriage

There has been a lot of conflict concerning the topic of same sex marriage. Most states have ruled it unconstitutional, and some have disagreed. But what really is the solution to this problem?

Argument Driven Analysis of the Article American Space, Chinese Place

Argument Driven Analysis of the Article American Space, Chinese Place

Tuan talks about Chinese people’s rootedness as a comparison to American people’s pursuit of freedom in his article "American Space, Chinese place". As a Chinese student who studies abroad in America, I am really interested in what Tuan talks about. People here in America love to decorate their gardens outside their houses while Chinese do not pay that much attention to things like this because what they value is the environment inside their homes. I cannot help asking myself what causes this interesting phenomenon. While Tuan points out that it is the different cultures that shape the discrepancy between American and Chinese concept of "home". I agree with him on this part, however, I must contend that as of recent Chinese have in fact travelled and experienced life in other places, they learn to explore the world without disobeying their traditions and values.

Risk in Chinese Word Being Viewed as a Combination of Two Characters: Danger and Opportunity

Risk in Chinese word can be viewed as a combination of two characters: danger and opportunity, representing the coupling of risk and reward lies at the core of the risk definition. In other words, risk brings uncertainty of challenge with real possibility of rewards or loss.

I come from a family that successfully demonstrated risk can bring rewards. My grandfather, like thousands of other intellectuals, was forbidden to study during Cultural Revolution but he took risks by insisting studying at every night, although farm work already exhausted him in day time. He later became the chief economist in Bank of China and led negotiation on some of China’s greatest foreign investment projects because of his strong English and rich knowledge in finance. My mother quitted her stable job in state-owned enterprise to start her desktop sales business when few Chinese even knew what computer is. She later was recognized as a national top seller and her clients covered half of mainland China.

That was their generation. And now I keep the legacy in my life, which is quite different from my family’s but brings more challenges.
