Dangers of Hazing - "Hazing is an extraordinary activity that, when it occurs often enough, becomes perversely ordinary as those who engage in it grow desensitized to its inhumanity." (Hank Nuwer, Wrongs of Passage) This quotation is one that describes one of the numerous effects of hazing. Though hazing is becoming more and more common, it still is not being readily reported. Some reasons, of many, that hazing is not being reported are that the victims of hazing see it as a right of passage, the people who are administering the hazing have been previously hazed, and that the victims are afraid that if the actives find out that they told, the hazing will increasingly get worse....   [tags: Hazing] 593 words

Though a regular activity in the seventies, hazing, a possible dangerous act of initiation to a group, has now become an activity that is banned in thirty-nine states (Wagner 16). However, this ritual has not been stopped or become less severe. In fact it is becoming more dangerous. Since it has been banned, with many colleges imposing their own penalties against those participating in it, many fraternities and sororities have pursued this activity in an underground fashion....   [tags: College University Student Hazing Violence]

Ethical Hazing - Ethical Hazing When one hears the word "hazing," the typically first impression is that of a fraternity member with a paddle in one hand, beer in another and a young "pledge" bent over being struck by the wooden paddle. This is defiantly a case of classic hazing, however many other forms have been created and made public in the recent past. Other fields such as military, sorority, high school and athletic teams have begun to come under the same scrutiny fraternities have been for years.

Women In Corporate America - The once male dominated, corporate, "white collar" America has seen a phenomenal influx of women within the last thirty years. Although a female lawyer, physician, or CEO is no longer considered a rarity in our times, women still face quite a deal of oppression in comparison to their male counterparts. In retrospect, some professions have always been controlled by women, and men have not made a noticeable advance in these fields. In 1970, finding a female lawyer to represent you would be a difficult task, since less than five percent of the profession were women....   [tags: essays research papers] 658 words

Frederick Engels' Impact on the Conditions of Laborers - Frederick Engels' Impact on the Conditions of Laborers Life can always at times seem bad, even in the lives of some of the most prestigious, rich, popular people in the world. Bad hair, lack of sleep, abundance of homework, and an absence of money have the tendency to put a damper on some people's days, among other things. Too many times, though, in today's society things are taken for granted. Imagine not having a place to sleep, having no means of education, or having all hard-earned funds taken by the government, not even leaving enough to feed the family....   [tags: Frederick Engels Industrialization Essays] 830 words

Letter to Ms. Elizabeth Vagas - Letter to Ms. Elizabeth Vagas Dear Ms. Vagas: I saw your Broadcast piece, "The Scott Kruger Story", on ABC that was shown in September 1997 and would like to respond because I think that two key aspects were not discussed: Scott's parents and Scott himself. In my opinion, they are the only people to be held responsible for his death. Although I agree that MIT turned a blind eye on the problems because they obviously knew they existed, especially in this fraternity; it was Scott's personal and free choice to live there, to start drinking, and to continue it in the form of binging until his blood alcohol level hit .41 (Kalb, p.69)....   [tags: Papers] 1086 words

Marxism - Marxism Marxist criticism is inherently existentialist. One cannot know anything without having been exposed to it as some sort of life experience. There is no knowledge a priori, as some of the ancient philosophers would have us believe. Rather, knowledge is accumulated a posteriori, through actual experience. Therefore, there is almost nothing that is inherent and absolute in our knowledge. It can never be purely objective, as knowledge is absorbed through the grid of our own perceptions, and that grid is in turn formed through our youthful socialization within our particular culture....   [tags: Papers] 1489 words

The Pressure Brought On By College - The Pressure Brought On By College Socially, religiously, and scholastically, a person’s values are severely challenged as he enters college. A major university has many evil faces that can alter a person’s values if he or she is not careful. Fraternities and their counterpart, sororities, target freshmen mainly because they’re young, easily influenced, and lonesome. Religious organizations try their best to counter the fraternities by gathering these young scholars to spread their word. The University of Georgia itself causes turmoil in these students' beliefs by requiring classes that promote a change in merit....   [tags: University Stress Peer Pressure]

Violence in the Media - Some believe that violence in the media is to blame for violence in people, but that argument is undermined by the realization that violence existed long before video games and television. In fact, violence has actually been steadily decreasing since these things have been growing in popularity. Critics of violent media seem to long for the “good old days”; a time before there was violence in the media. These critics fail to acknowledge that those “good old days” were actually far more violent than today....   [tags: Violence] 816 words

Finding the Right Balance as a Teacher - According to Star Wars - In the movie “Star Wars” the Jedi knights were fighting to have balance in the force. Today many people are also trying to find balance, but others always lean heavy on the other side. Today teachers either try to be cool and get walked on by their students or they are not assertive enough so they do not crack down on them. Some are aggressive and mean and therefore scare their students and still do not get any respect. If teachers can have a heart for their job and subject, have a balanced of lenience and strictness, are encouraging, can be engaging, and a positive role model then they can be an effective teacher and still be cool....   [tags: Education, philosophy of education]

Kosovo's Status Legitimacy - ... Because of the continuing centralization of power of the executive branch and the overall corruption and intolerance of soldiers, law enforcement, and citizens, both the State Duma and judiciary branch proved to be helpless against the significant number of human rights violations surrounding the war (Bureau of Democracy 2007). These violations included horrific offenses by both the Russian government against civilians (such as alleged government involvement in politically motivated abductions, disappearances, and unlawful killings) and by police, soldiers, and security forces (such as hazing, torture, violence, harsh and even life threatening prison conditions, arbitrary arrest and detention and other brutal or humiliating treatment) whose behavior was encouraged (although not explicitly) by the government (Bureau of Democracy 2007)....   [tags: International Government ]

Sport, Aggression, Violence and Victimization - ... In this sense, aggression is considered an innate drive which can present itself in different ways (Berkowitz, 1993). Aggression may be direct or indirect, and can be further broken down into instrumental (goal-directed) aggression and emotional (hostile) aggression. Freud’s notion of catharsis suggests that this aggressive drive builds up over time and, if not given the opportunity to release itself, the aggression will build up and ultimately explode, potentially resulting in serious violent behavior (Goldstein, 1986)....   [tags: Violence ]

Dazed and Confused - ... The film chooses to follow a certain demographic, and this demographic listens to this music. The film would have less of an impact, and even make infinitely less sense if the kids were listening to disco music the entire time. Frith makes another interesting point when he says, “Rock Criticism depends on myth – the myth of the youth community, the myth of the creative artist. The reality is that rock, like all twentieth-century pop musics, is a commercial form, music produced as a commodity, for a profit, distributed through mass media as mass culture” (Frith, 136 – 137)....   [tags: Film Review]

Myth of the Teen Brain: An Article Review - ... Neurotransmission has also been linked to normal developmental processing and disorders (Robbins, Chatterjee & Canda 2006). At the same token, ingesting substances such as drugs (legal and illegal) can permanently change the brain’s chemistry, and ultimately, its functioning (National Institute on Drug Abuse 2011). In such case, it is important to note that the action of using a substance (environment) alters the brain, instead of the brain causing the substance use, as would be deducted from the brain scans....   [tags: Article Review]
