E-commerce an Introduction E-commerce an Introduction In the broadest sense, electronic commerce (e-commerce), is the buying and selling of products and services over the Internet. It has included the handling of purchase transactions and funds transfers over computer networks. According to the Forrester Research Study Sizing Intercompany Commerce, total U.S business-to-business Internet trade in 1998 is $7.7 billion, compared to a total global e-commerce of $21.8 billion, dramatically increasin
Cultural Differences This paper outlines the differences in the cultures of the United States versus Asian Indian and Vietnamese cultures. I will look at these countries and make not only a comparison based on cultures, but also comparisons from a business perspective. Although there are many differences in general societies, some issues such as women in the workplace, and images in the media, stand across many borders. Using the United States as my comparison culture I will first discuss the cu
Pro Same-Sex Marriage When it comes to marriage, I feel everyone should have that right. Marriage is a very important decision, which no one should interfere with. For instance, here is a passage from Patricia Nell Warren\'s essay entitled Homosexuality Is a Legitimate Choice. Today some radical-right church leaders wish to bend APA[i] policy [which denies that homosexuality is not a disorder] to their belief that homosexuality is a crime, no different than murder and theft-as per some passages

The 14 stars represent the 14 administrative divisions. The total area of Burma is 678,500 sq km. Burma is slightly smaller than Texas. The climate in Burma consists of

File Sharing…Simply No Right Answer 2/3/04 English Comp 102 Essay 2 Over the past few years the concept of file sharing has exploded into not only popularity, but also into controversy as record labels started to experience a decline in their sales. I download songs almost everyday, and it never crosses my mind that it is illegal, or that I would ever consider an alternative to the way that I do it now. It is simply that it is the way I’ve grown up; I discovered the first popular program that al
Freedom in the United States No other democratic society in the world permits personal freedoms to the degree of the United States of America. Within the last sixty years, American courts, especially the Supreme Court, have developed a set of legal doctrines that thoroughly protect all forms of the freedom of expression. When it comes to evaluating the degree to which we take advantage of the opportunity to express our opinions, some members of society may be guilty of violating the bounds of th

THE MAN I SHOULD HAVE MARRIED 2003 The man I should have married is not a classic romance, but is instead a journey of self-discovery told in the first-person. Even though it has a love story at its backbone, the book is really about a woman´s reclamation of the woman she used to be, while she tries to find the enough strength to move forward with hope. It is an exhilarating, funny, sad and poignant story about how to live with the choices you make, how to deal with the consequences of your acti
A Modest Proposal The first impression that I have from reading this poem of “A Modest Proposal” is that the author must be sick or unstable to propose the selling of one-year-old children for the purpose of being cooked and eaten by the rich. However, a more in-dept analysis of the tone and style of the writer reveal a specific purpose behind this outrageous proposal. In effect, it seems that Swift’s intent is to address some very hot issues being faced by the citizens of his “kingdom” at the t
Ethical Relativism Standards of right and wrong are the mere products of time and culture. Morality is a neutral concept - there is no such thing as an absolute right or wrong. Instead, morality is defined by what is \'good\' or \'bad\' in a given society, by the social norms. What held true twenty thousand, two thousand or even two hundred years ago may or may not hold true now. The human race has grown and continues to expand; our technology, culture, customs, and laws constantly change and ev
Chapter 12: Interpenetration of International National Systems: International Protection of Human Rights by States ABSTRACT There are two sections mentioned in this chapter, section A- the Spread of State Constitutions in the Liberal Model and section B- Human Rights Treaties within States’ Legal and Political Orders. The first section describes the constitutions supported by liberal political foundation and often describes the adoption of human rights and constitutionalism by many states during
The “Frisky” Bachelor, and the Moral Ramifications A response to Scenario #1 December 9, 2003 Dr. Devine The “Frisky” Bachelor, and the Moral Ramifications Abortion is one of the most passionately argued contemporary moral issues at hand. Very accomplished intellectuals have supported conflicting ideas, each with convincing evidence. There are many points of view toward abortion but the only two fine distinctions are pro-choice and pro-life . A pro-choicer would feel that the decision to abort
Domestic Partnership and the Same-sex Marriage Debate 9939105 Phil 102 A Homework 3 It is fair to say that the continued discussion of homosexuality’s role in American culture has brought about many positive changes in the way homosexuals are treated and represented in society. It is also fair to say that those changes are merely baby-steps in the right direction. For years, same-sex couples have fought against great odds to achieve equality in the eyes of the law, especially on the issue of mar
Aboriginal Injustice Social justice is grounded in the practical, day-to-day realities of life. It’s about waking up in a house with running water and proper sanitation; offering one’s children an education that helps them develop their potential and respect their culture. It is the prospect of satisfying employment and good health. However, this is not the case for indigenous Australians. They continue today to be disadvantaged. It is these aspects which will be addressed in our presentation to
If only God had made Adam Steve, instead of Adam Eve… Comp-II, Sec-003 06/17/04 In “Let Gays Marry,” Andrew Sullivan responds to conservative objections to same-sex marriages, by arguing that allowing such unions would actually promote traditional values, such as fidelity, monogamy, and love. It should logically appeal to straight conservatives, who deplore gay male promiscuity, that the declaration of Supreme Court: “A state cannot deem a class of persons a stranger to its laws,” now assigns eq
Government’s Regulation on Gun Control Argumentative Essay December 12, 2003 Americans are confronted with growing acts of violence. Our streets have become a place where the elderly are picked on, women are attacked and raped, where teenage gangsters shoot it out for a patch of turf to sell their illegal drugs, and where innocent children are caught in the crossfire of driveby shootings. We cannot ignore the harm that these criminals are doing to our society, and we must take actions to stop
Community Building with Suicidal Behavior MBA Organizational Behaviour and Design Community Building with Suicidal Behaviour Paper on: Introduction: Human beings have psychological, ethical, and spiritual needs that transcend the normal liberal agenda. Liberals have tended to focus exclusively on economic entitlements and political rights. But most people need something more: We need to be part of loving families and ethically and spiritually grounded communities that provide a meaning for our
Parliament Parliament, Britain\'s legislature, is made up of the House of Commons, the House of Lords and the Queen in her constitutional role. They meet together only on occasions of symbolic importance such as the state opening of parliament, when the Commons are summoned by the Queen to the House of Lords. The agreement of all three elements is normally required for legislation, but that of the Queen is given as a matter of course to Bills sent to her. Parliament can legislate for Britain as
What do feminists find to be objectionable in patriarchy, and are they right to be critical of it? The above illustration is one of many that are used on a daily basis in order to make the understanding and also the highlighting of patriarchy an everyday issue in the daily conflict of gender issues. Western female thought through the centuries has identified the relationship between patriarchy and gender as crucial to the women’s subordinate position. For two hundred
What are Psychopaths and How do they exist in a corporate world? The media may portray the psychopath as a crazed serial killer - the stuff of nightmares and horror films - but the reality is chillingly different. Not all psychopaths are violent criminals and fewer still have a desire to eat you for dinner. Many are highly successful businessmen and women, lawyers, academics, politicians, doctors and teachers. Psychopaths wear suits too... The Mental Health Act 1983 (HMSO 1983) described psychop
CATHOLICISM AND ZEN BUDDHISM WEDDING CEREMONIES Christianity and Buddhism are worldwide recognised and respected religions. Both are similar yet different in religious significance through ritual and practical aspects and have different symbolic realms for material structures. Ninian Smart’s seven dimensions help characterise the similarities and differences in all five major religions. This approach outlines the various aspects or dimensions of the religions. Both the ritual and practical and m
Introduction to Islam Allah (God) Islam is the complete submission and obedience to Allah (God). The name Allah (God) in Islam never refers to Muhammad (pbuh), as many Christians may think; Allah is the personal name of God. What do Muslims believe about Allah? 1. He is the one God, Who has no partner. 2. Nothing is like Him. He is the Creator, not created, nor a part of His creation. 3. He is All-Powerful, absolutely Just. 4. There is no other entity in the entire universe worthy of worship bes

The Sixth Commandment and its Unwritten Rules: Should the Church Compromise to the Modern World? Roman Catholics all over the world refer to the Holy Bible as their guide to how they live. Written in there are parables, chronicles, and “natural” laws that could lead its faithful devotees their way to the promised “eternal life with God”. The Holy Bible’s Ten Commandments is similar to the U.S. Constitution. Like how the Ten Commandments lead the lives of faithful Roman Catholics, the U.S. Consti
Carnivalesque Resistance to Global Spectacle: A Critical Postmodern Theory of Public Administration April 12, 2001; Revised April 30, 2001 Pre-publication draft of article published in: Administrative Theory Praxis, Vol 23 (3): 431-458. Abstract I propose a critical postmodern application of Debord’s Spectacle and the carnivalesque of Bakhtin to the theatrics I see happening in city streets, on college campuses, and Internet resisting the new globalized economy. In the past decade pubic administ
The Latham Seafoods Case Introduction Attracted by the low labour costs and economic growth in the Southeast Asia, more and more developed Western businesses are shifting business to Southeast Asian countries in order to maintain a competitive position in international market.

What are the limits of Genetic Engineering? 3rd Quarter Seminar 25 March 2004 What is genetic engineering? Genetic engineering is the alteration of an organism\'s DNA, or genetic, material to eliminate undesirable characteristics or to produce desirable new ones. The most controversial form of genetic engineering, by far, is cloning. Cloning is another technology that has evolved out of genetic research. While genetic engineering usually adds or removes just one or two genes, cloning involves re

BLACK VS. BLACK Psychology of Racism Racism If you\'re White you\'re alright, if you\'re brown, stick around, if you\'re Black, stay back. You may not have ever heard that old saying, but many believe the feeling behind it is still as popular as the rhyme was generations ago; positive character traits are associated with light skin, while negative attributes and problems are connected to darker skin color. Many people believe that African Americans receive a great amount of discrimination from C
Argue for and against the merits of changing the laws in the Caribbean to replace the British Privy Council as the final Court of Appeal FD13A: Caribbean Society, Government Law November 3rd, 2003 In recent years there has been much debate and discussion concerning the issue of the Caribbean’s final court of appeal. Currently the British Privy Council is the highest court of appeal, both in Britain and the English speaking Caribbean. Before independence, the judicial systems of the Commonwealth
Death Penalty Reviewing a topic as controversial as the death penalty can be a difficult. Many facts and opinions can be presented on both sides of the argument that are compelling; however, after reviewing and analyzing the following data and arguments; a clear case can be made for the revamping of the death penalty in America today. This paper concentrates the reasoning to three very distinct aspects of the death penalty, all of which will contribute to its ineffectiveness in the American lega
Education, Software Piracy, and the Law Abstract This paper is intended as a primer for copyright law in the form of a short story. An elementary school teacher illegitimately copies a piece of software for educational purposes and is discovered. Issues such as the fair use doctrine, copyright law, and cyberlaw are covered. The analytical section provides a realistic legal defense for the fictional situation that drives the paper. My name is ___ and I teach 6th grade mathematics at Hightstown Mi
Families Looking at lone parent families is like looking at a hologram picture: holding it one way you see one thing, holding it a other way, you see another thing. This can be profoundly disorienting. In order to avoid vertigo, I shall start by looking at the picture from different angles, turning it slowly, noting the shifting patterns. All of these angles are informed by the basic lens used here: what are meaningful concepts for social policy formation? It is dangerous to identify problems –
:ISLAM AND WOMEN’S SEXUALITY: A RESEARCH REPORT FROM TURKEY The control over women’s sexuality through restriction, coercion, violence or more complicated forms of political and social manipulation remains the most powerful tool of patriarchy in the majority of societies. Religion is often misused, both as an instrument of this control mechanism and as a cultural system, to legitimize the violation of women’s human rights. However, concentrating on the role of religion in constructing women’s sex
The Challenge of Being a Foster Parent Literature Review February 29, 2004 Abstract This review discusses the commonly overlooked issue of how adults should deal with foster children with behavioral problems. It will explain how foster parents can help foster children properly adapt to their new homes, how foster parents can contribute to maladjustment, and what can be done by foster parents to correct pre-existing problems. This review will help others understand the process of fostering childr
Abortion Is there a dilemma in your life where you can’t come up with a straight answer? In today’s society there are many controversial issues. One such issue that affects many people is abortion. Some people are pro-choice (supporters of abortion) others are pro-life (against abortion). This has been a hot topic for a very long time. There are many reasons why abortion should be illegal. Abortion is defined as the termination of a pregnancy before the fetus is capable of independent life. Acco
Abortion In Roe et al. v. Wade District Attorney of Dallas County (1973), one of the most controversial cases in recent history, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down all state laws that limit a woman\'s right to an abortion during the first three months of pregnancy. Justices Rehnquist and White dissented. Mr. Justice Blackmun delivered the opinion of the Court.... This Texas federal appeal and its Georgia companion, Doe v. Bolton, post, p. 179, present constitutional challenges to state criminal
The Government In 1997 when the current Government was elected into power one of their aims was to tackle the inequalities that existed within health and social care. Since then we have seen the publication of many policy documents which planned the way forward for health care, particularly in the way that care is delivered. Modern and Dependable (DOH, 1997), set out ways for national improvement in healthcare. Modernising Mental health Services (DOH, 1998a), set out the way on which mental heal
Reform Party Per. 6, 9/19/03 Reform Party Essay The reform party views on the “C.H.E.E.S.I.E.” issues are what I would call generally conservative, but certainly not overtly right wing. They are fairly clear cut in saying that they believe in a government that is very principled and just and as democratic as possible. The American Reform Party believes that the liberty and freedom we enjoy is not void of responsibility that goes along with it, and that Americans must live up to that in order to
Dalits the untouchables A Dalit is not considered to be part of the human society, but something, which is beyond that. Dalits are seen as polluting for higher caste people. If a higher caste Hindu is touched by an untouchable or even had a Dalit\'s shadow across them, they consider themselves to be polluted and have to go through a rigorous series of rituals to be cleansed. In India there are approximately 240 million Dalits. This means that nearly 25% of the population is Dalit. It also means
Twelve Locations in Huck Finn St. Petersburg As the story opens, Huck Finn has been adopted by the Widow Douglas who wants to make him conform to the way and views of society. It is with this forced learning that Huck finds that he is not comfortable with the situation. Huck Finn, a boy of approximately 12 years, is the son of the town drunk. Widow Douglas adopts him so that she can civilize him and raise him to be a gentleman. Huck does not like the dull ways of the Widow. Though she is nurturi
Discuss the issues of publishing pictures that have been altered using a computer. Picture and subject manipulations have been a part of photography since it was first invented. But because of computer technology, digital manipulations are relatively easy to accomplish, hard to detect and perhaps more alarming, alter the original image so that checking the authenticity of the picture is impossible. Some critics have predicted that in a few years, images -- whether still or moving -- will not be
Abortion: Birth Control or Murder? Approximately 1.6 million murders are committed legally each year. With the exception of laws in few states, the mutilated bodies of the victims are thrown into dumpsters like pieces of rotten meat. While these victims lay waiting in the infested dumpsters to be hauled off to a landfill, the murderers are in their offices waiting for their next patient--the accomplice to the murder. This is the murder of an innocent child by a procedure known as abortion. Abort
The Values of the Invisible Man I awoke, there was a crash on the upper deck. I heard a thunderous crackling from my head above. I ran up the stairs and what I saw devastated me. The small wooden boat was completely coated in billowy flames. Help, help, somebody please! I slowly moved towards the sound being careful to dodge flames as much as possible. The smoke was choking me. I could see a faint outline of a face across the deck. It was Tom, my lifelong friend and companion. He was completely
Inherit The Wind English 214 March 31, 2004 It would be very hard to imagine that the world would accept any change with ease. That could be any process in which something passes by degrees to a different stage especially a more advanced or mature stage. Some are afraid of dealing with the change, whatever that change may be, and that is why one does not even bother interpreting it, not to say accepting it. Inherit the Wind has all the components of a fantastic movie, one that illustrates that s
MANAGING GLOBAL HUMAN RESOURCES The environment in which business competes is rapidly becoming globalized. More and more companies are entering international markets by exporting their products overseas, building plants in other countries, and entering into alliances with foreign companies.
