At first I had to really determine between two: consensus and conflict but I would say that consensus paradigms describes our criminal justice system, in the United States, the best. Consensus, “expresses what society truly is.” The way it is explained, in regular terms, is that under law everyone has the right to speak and have their own voice in what they believe in and what they feel. Not only does this pertain to the law but coming together as a whole and each being individually equal under the law comes to play, a role in consensus paradigms. Another reason for choosing consensus is because it states, “vote, pay taxes, demand the passage of laws, and reap benefits from the social contract (everyone gives up some measure of their rights and freedom for the benefit of all). I feel that this describes our criminal justice system in the United States because we all have our individual rights of freedom but along with that we also have to give up certain things to be United as one. To describe the “justice” received by Cameron Todd Willingham I would say that pluralist paradigm best describes it. My reasoning for this is because after he was sentenced for execution and time had passed, most people started to really question whether the fire was started accidentally or purposely. Pluralist paradigm states that, “Law arises from multiple interest groups whose power is in flux, always changing.” It also states, “With changing times, people are open to new ideas.” With this case I feel that people were open to the idea that he was wrongly convicted and with that I feel that is where justice was received for him. To lose your kids and then be wrongly accused, I could imagine, would be beyond difficult. Therefore, I think it was right t...

1. In my opinion I believe that Walmart has many issues. In spite of their competitive prices and the convenient locations they oppose many problems to different communities. The Managerial philosophy in Walmart is corrupted the number of men holding manager positions over shadows the number of women.

The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) was created in 1946, right after the conclusion of World War II. The GATT emerged as the means of promoting "free trade", which was deemed to be essential to peace. Its purpose was to persuade countries to dismantle their protectionist systems by reducing and eventually eliminating tariffs for member states. Many argue that trade between states who produce base on the idea of comparative advantages would increase global interdependence and raise the price of aggression. Thus, interdependence forces states to be cooperative with each other’s. Economic self-sufficiency is considered the cause of war.
More often than not, this leads to extreme bias toward or against a topic being discussed and with so little legitimate, factual evidence to back a person’s claim up; making it difficult or even impossible to sway someone to understand or consider a different perspectives about said topic. Which is why, as stated earlier, we must be cautious of where we get our information from, who said it, when, where, and why. All these seemingly insignificant details do greatly influence how the information is displayed to individuals.
1. Explain the difference between academic English and social English. Think of the way the CALLA book describes these two types of language like how long it takes to learn and what level of cognition is required for each one. Also, think of the situations in which each is used. Tell why is important to know academic English and how a teacher can teach academic English.
Like many Americans I initially grouped all Native Americans into one melting pot. During the Haskell Indian Nations cultural day, on June 21,st 2010, the speakers talked about how different tribes are not the same; they have different beliefs...
Stereotypes dictate a certain group in either a good or bad way, however more than not they give others a false interpretation of a group. They focus on one factor a certain group has and emphasize it drastically to the point that any other aspect of that group becomes lost. Media is one of the largest factors to but on blame for the misinterpretation of groups in society. In Ten Little Indians, there are many stereotypes of Native Americans in the short story “What You Pawn I Will Redeem”. The story as a whole brings about stereotypes of how a Native American in general lives and what activities they partake in. By doing so the author, Alexie Sherman, shows that although stereotypes maybe true in certain situations, that stereotype is only
