History final

Modernity is the break from tradition, which assumes progress to be made. The concept of the present time has changed the ways in which humans understand the world they live in by economic structures, government, technology, culture and the environment.

Modernity has brought new forms of expression in terms of knowledge. Varied communication strategies bring in a fundamental shift in understanding the world. The change took a lot of time to be done, and the main catalyst was to realize that human beings have place in the world (Modernity P.1).

Case Study

The number of young people dropping out of schools has continued to increase in the past years for various reasons. Consequently, most of these young people become disengaged causing them to engage in destructive behavior such as joining gangs, dealing and abusing drugs. Crimes such as break-ins, burglary and thefts have also increased since most of this youngster are not employed and require money to sustain their habits. These events have not gone unnoticed, and a group of like-minded young entrepreneurs in the community have come together with the aim of using social justice precepts and offer assistance. They have integrated the concepts of just practice framework that include meaning, context, power, history and possibility in their work.


Titanic Review

Undoubtedly, James Cameron’s movie, Titanic is regarded as one of the best pieces of work in the 20th century. Starring renowned actors like Kate Winslet and Leonardo Dicaprio, Cameron presents his viewers with an amalgamate of romance, division in social class, conflict, as well as tragedy. The inclusion of such diversity in the film avoids boredom or rather monotony. Playing as Jack Dawson, Dicaprio is painted as a con artist, who maneuvers his way through gambling and stealing from his opponents.

Trace the developments leading to the outbreak of the Civil War

Human diversity in race, tribe, class and religion has caused division which has often resulted in war. Over the last five hundred years, people have witnessed more wars than there have been in any other period. While small kingdoms sought to control regions, the bigger, kingdoms and established countries sought to control the world. Among the greatest wars in history are World War 1 and 2, the cold war, the Gulf War, and recently, the Anti-terror wars in the Middle East.

The author of the article, Christin Kasper, highlights the background information of the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) among the military and soldiers since the ancient times when war began. The study aims at assessing the causes of the penetrating and concussive TBI during war, and how progressive medical treatment and research have prevented resulting deaths.

Privacy in the Workplace

An employee's right to privacy in the workplace is becoming an increasingly controversial issue, considering that today’s duties are so much dependent on the internet. The issue of privacy has even become a legal topic, with questions bordering on the extent to which an employer is allowed to monitor his employees. The question is no longer whether it is proper to monitor employees, but rather, to what extent should the monitoring be allowed. Although employees may feel that monitoring infringes their right to privacy, the law provides for particular circumstances when employers are allowed to monitor their employees.

The two have previously worked together in the experimental mathematics.


The cost of any item of PPE only qualifies as an asset if its cost can reliably be measured, and it is probable that the economic benefits associated with it will flow to the entity. The total costs of PPE include the initial acquisition costs or construction costs and subsequent significant costs incurred in bringing them in their usable condition and position (New Zealand Accounting Standard Board, 2005).

Poor dieting and physical inactivity

It is not possible to mention inferior dieting and leave out physical dormancy while discussing behavioral health risk factors. The vitality of appropriate nutrition and body exercise in reducing most of the chronic diseases is a well-instituted fact (Kovner & Knickman, 2011). In the US, 310, 000 to 580,000 deaths result from the typical conditions arising from unfortunate dieting and bodily inoperativeness such as diabetes, stroke and osteoporosis (Tengland, 2010). Poor dieting involves inadequacy in eating and unbalanced diet that constitutes excessive consumption of one particular type of food. The essay will examine the interventions to poor dieting and physical inactivity using the population-based intervention model offering a response at each of the following stages downstream, midstream and upstream.

Public Health

Botulinum toxin is a biological toxin that has several benefits. It is defined as a neurotoxic protein that is produced by a bacterium. The bacterium species responsible for producing botulinum is known as clostridium botulinum. The toxin is produced for purposes such as medical, cosmetic and research. For proper functioning of the toxin, it is produced in two commercial types botulinum toxin type A and botulinum toxin type B (Pickett). However, the toxin can be dangerous to one’s health whereby an infection of the bacterium results to botulism. This means that the toxin is a lethal toxin that must be used in doses.

Public Policy Options and Strategic Planning

Traditionally, the policies and strategic planning of EMS have focused on implementing approaches based on making tradeoffs. The approach is informed by economic argument in the health sector where resources are scarce and demands are unlimited. The observation calls for sound policies and strategic plans that address needs with the most significant impacts if not resolved. Policy makers must thus be able to rank the interventions as well alternatives. The perspective is a cost-benefit model that focuses on getting the best from resources utilized as well as reducing wastage.
