To begin public policy has many different definitions than just one. It is largely based on what it is that the public wants. Reading Birkland has taught me that it is also based off of what the government decides to do or not do, and it is largely made...

...f new policies” (Birkland, 2011, p.61).The judiciary, legislative, executive branches are the three branches of government that are regulated by the system that based on the ideas presented in federalism in that no one branch has the same or more power than the other, and in the constitution this system is known as checks and balances. The main impact that the federalist structure has on the federalist structure is that it “impede[s] rapid and radical policy change” (Birkland, 2011, p.61) by intentionally slowing down the process. The evidence of the impact of the federalist system is something that you can clearly see when you look at how our country has struggled to make changes in policy that keep up with the times. Meaning that the policy making process often takes years to have a new policy be adopted because of the use of policy restraint of the constitution.

- The past twenty five years have been brutal in regards to public opinion polls and the attention given to our public officials and their ethical standards. “Several have expressed the belief that our leaders are, at best, self-interested or, at worst, corrupt, thereby contributing to the problem. In addressing the public’s concern, some officials have attempted to explain this “unfortunate situation” by attributing it to a general decline in personal ethics, the inevitable result of increased power and luxury....

- Following the Group speech that was given on November 15, 2013, I have been asked to write this reflection paper to address the nature of the speech and how I can improve. Upon reading the peer review sheets we received from the class following our speech I believe that we all improved since our last speech. Everyone seems to state the most important area for improvement was using filler words too much. I think we as a group seemed to have improved as far as talking towards the audience and using less filler words.... [tags: reflection paper and nature of the speech]

- The perception of a culture from outside is important for it influences the culture itself as well as economic and political decisions: money is spent on the representation of countries abroad. For example, China is present everywhere through the Confucius Institutes, so is Germany with the Goethe Institutes and Spain with the Institutos Cervantes. However, in everyday life, the perception of a country from abroad is closer to a bundle of stereotypes usually corroborated in popular culture references: Americans eat burgers and drink coke, Brazilians dance on the beach, Japaneses work round the clock, Australians surf all the time, Spaniards are lazy, and so on....

I recall talking with the advisor about the requirements for my General Education credits as well my need to take a preparatory class for algebra because I scored to low on the placement exam to be allowed to take the full college level math....

- Over the years I have been a faithful fan of anything crime related; the anatomy of a crime, from the crime itself, to the investigation, and finally the court for trial and sentencing. I enjoyed the process. The internet became an interesting tool for me to learn all the different things I wanted to know about the subject of crime. I would see something in the media or on television but kept a neutral point of view about technology that was used on a program. Logically speaking, if a crime could be solved in 47 minutes and DNA results took weeks or months, not minutes to process than would it not make sense that real life crimes would be solved far quicker in the name of swift justice....

- Intern Reflection Paper The internship that I acquired during the summer of 2010 at the Greenwood Sports and Industrial Rehabilitation Center (GSIRC), allowed me to gain an immeasurable amount of experience during my tenure at this facility.

This can include areas affected by natural disasters and those that have been the sites of military action, terrorist attacks, or other forms of violence. The requirement that no harm come to survey participants is particularly important in these circumstances.... [tags: Opinion poll, Sampling]

- The focus today on America's modern icons can be ridiculous. Our icons are no longer people who have done anything touchable. Florence Nightingale saved our country from future disease. Harriet Tubman helped to free slaves. Francis Scott Key wrote our beloved national anthem. Now, in the 21st century, we have Britney Spears, sexpot. We're proud to say that we are the home of the raunchy Christina Aguilera. And Kurt Cobain. We can't forget Kurt, can we. At the mere mention of any of these names, curiosity and conversation run rampant.... [tags: Sociology]
