- Many civilizations have come and gone throughout the history of humankind. While they each had their own unique qualities, they have all shared the need for rules and laws to govern the society. People generally follow the law of the land, but there are always those who will violate the law. To address these law breakers, also known as criminals, society has created varying levels of punishment in an effort to decrease the number of criminal incidents. As stated in the Encyclopedia of Crime and Punishment, “Deterrence is the straightforward, common-sense notion that if you do something wrong, you will be punished, and the punishment itself will prevent you from doing that wrong thing again”...   [tags: Capital punishment, Crime, Criminal law]

A Vindication Of The Rights Of Women

- In Wollstonecraft’s radical essay, A Vindication of the Rights of Women, she discusses women’s issues including marriage and the right for an education equal to that of a man’s. A part of her argument for equal education is that women should have the right to develop their own form of reason without influence from other sources. The importance of developing reason is so that women will not be overly inclined towards emotionalism and develop superficial ways of thinking (46). Since women are uneducated they, unfortunately, blindly submit to men 's power....   [tags: Feminism, Third-wave feminism]

Congressional Committees: The Workhorse of Legislature

Conference committees are also temporary panels designed to negotiate differences between House and Senate forms of legislature to compromise the exact details of a particular bill. Lastly, joint committees are similar to conference committees, except they are permanent.

- erica’s Haunting Reflection The book, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins can be deciphered in many different ways. Emily Lem and Holly Hassle’s view on this story is how The Hunger Games defy the norm by breaking down gender-related barriers. They argue that, “Katniss capitalizes patriarchal values that privilege traditionally masculine qualities…” (Lem-Hassel 118). This perception is not entirely wrong, but it’s not the main theme of the book.

The act raises questionable teaching methods and programs, increases accountability to the level that teachers only teach well out of fear, and closes an educational gap that I believe should exist.
