...status”. J.D. Salinger created a book that will continue to stun the readers of many generations to come, and maybe eventually it will be removed from the banned books list. This is definitely a story that should be handed down, and although it is hard to decipher why this was the motive to shoot the famous Beatles singer, John Lennon, parents shouldn't be afraid when their child picks up this book at the library. Holden Caulfield, the unusual protagonist, is able to teach the people who read his story that being lonely is almost always self-inflicted; there is always someone around the corner waiting to enter your life, you just need to look up.

- Bystander Intervention Imagine an innocent teen walking home from school, when a bully appears and begins relentlessly taunting, pushing, and calling the teen harsh names. The teen is defenseless and hopeless because he/she is intimidated by the bully and no one around is stopping the interaction. There is one solution to this situation that can help teens when they are in that position, and it is bystander intervention. The University of Texas’ Bystander Intervention initiative defines bystander intervention as “recognizing a potentially harmful situation or interaction and choosing to respond in a way that could positively influence the outcome” (qtd in Mangan)....

- Being a loner does not necessarily mean wanting to be alone, or avoiding the company of other people like the dictionary defines it. My definition of a loner is an outcast or a person who people don’t want to be around. A loner could also be a widower or a widow, a psychic. A loner could also be a person that doesn’t have the opportunity to be around people. Psychologist Arthur Ashe uses his quote to support my definition which says I accepted the face that as much as I want to lead others, and love to be around people, in some essential way, I am something of a loner....

- Much recent discourse surrounding humanitarian intervention has focused on the responsibility to protect (R2P). Prevention is a key component for good international relations and few would say it is not important, but as evidence to date would show prevention is very ineffective, the legality of military intervention still needs to be debated, as to date there is no consensus. For any intervention to be legitimate, whether unilateral or multilateral, it must comply with international law. So as not to cause any confusion, any situation in which an “intervention” is done with the permission or by request of the state being intervened, should be considered humanitarian assistance as state sove...

- Humanitarian intervention after the post-cold war has been one of the main discussions in the International Relation theories. The term intervention generally brings a negative connotation as it defines as the coercive interference by the outside parties to a sovereign state that belongs in the community. The humanitarian intervention carried out by international institutions and individual sovereign states has often been related to the usage of military force. Therefore, it is often perceived intervention as a means of ways to stop sovereign states committing human rights abuse to its people.... [tags: Humanitarian Intervention, military, sociology,]

- The most viable way to demonstrate the effects of an intervention is by conducting an experiment that is randomized and controlled. In order to evaluate the impact of this intervention, one must be able to ensure that the change in the target population is brought on by the intervention itself and not by external forces. Forces such as threats to internal validity can dilute the impact of the intervention and thus need to be controlled as best as possible. Attempting to control factors such as research environment threats (e.g., expectancy effects), between-cases threats (e.g., treatment contamination), and longitudinal threats (e.g., history) will need to be considered in order to strengthe...

- According to the Student Success Initiative (SSI) 2012-2013 manual, the 81st Texas Legislature in 2009 made changes to their 1999 policy, requiring 5th and 8th grade students to “demonstrate proficiency” on the reading and mathematics section of their tests by their third administration. Additionally, the Grade Placement Committee (GPC) can approve advancement based on grades, standardized test scores and teacher recommendation. With this in mind, the 2013-14 sixth grade students at an elementary school in Ector County Independent School District (ECISD) recently completed their fifth grade SSI mandated assessments....

- In the following essay I will discuss aspects of international relations relating to humanitarian intervention and how they affect a nation’s responsibilities in the international arena. I will be drawing parallels to historical examples of intervention and to recent world events. I will inspect the classical realist notion of non-intervention and sovereignty and another newer line of thought, more adapted to the modern system. What I hope to bring forth in this paper is a clearer understanding of the situation and the responsibilities of the actors in current international relations in regard to humanitarian rights and intervention....

- ... Led by Public Health, stakeholders such as education, child welfare, public health and the healthcare system would need to collaborate to identify all resources in the local support system, plotting availability using geo-mapping technology to identify access gaps. Once gaps are identified, braided funding methodologies would maximize available No Child Left Behind, public health programming, and healthcare dollars (with all encounter information reported through the healthcare system much like described in last week’s Complete for purposes of “Coordination of Benefits” to avoid waste and assist in stratification of the population)....

- Introduction Arguments for government intervention in international trade take two paths: political and economic (Hill 2011, p205). Political intervention is concerned with protection of certain groups within the nation. These groups are usually the producers who have a lot to gain at the expense of consumers. On the other hand, economic arguments for intervention are concerned with increasing the wealth of the nation to the benefit of all i.e. producers and consumers. This paper discusses the arguments for the protectionist measures and the instruments governments apply in controlling trade and foreign direct investments....
