Active usually refers to doing something to take a life. Passive refers to omitting something and allowing one to die. Don’t forget to select a paradigm (Kantianism, utilitarianism…) ANSWER:   Mercy Death versus Mercy Killing Student’s Name Institution     Mercy Death versus Mercy Killing   Many people distance themselves from the death topics and do not understand why someone may ask for help in dying or simply want to choose to die. Mercy death and mercy killing are well-known phenomena. Mercy killing happens when someone causes another person’s death based on the conviction that death is appropriate or good for the victim. It is simply terminating a person’s life without him or her asking for it. On the other hand, mercy death is the direct action to end one’s life when he or she requests for it (Moreno, 2000). This happens when opinions and facts show that death is the best solution. Neither mercy killing nor mercy...

Consider how Funes’s life in the story is affected, but also consider your own personality and circumstances (you may not necessarily do what Funes does, after all). Answer the question directly.

Operant Conditioning Paper

Operant Conditioning Paper Institution Date (1.051 Words)     Introduction   Behavioral theories are meant to enhance skills especially on children whose use will become handy later in their life. Operant conditioning is one of the behavioral theories which was pioneered by Fredrick Skinner based on the premise that reinforcing certain behavior enhances their repetition, but punishing will stop learning of the particular behavior (McLeod, 2015). Skinner dedicated his time to study human behavior and engaged in understanding the reason for people performing given behavior and their consequences. The operant condition theory focusses on the intentional actions that have an impact on the surrounding environment Staddon& Cerutti, 2003). The theory of operant conditioning explains the process which prompts certain behaviors to occurs and why others are inhibited.   Operant Conditioning The origin of the operant theory was Edwards Thorndike, a psychologist who came up with “law “of effect (Thorndike, 1898). In his theory, he stated that behavior which was proceeded by a pleasant outcome, it was likely to be repeated, while a behavior proceeded by an unpleasant outcome would be stopped or extinct (Thorndike, 1898). Skinners’ theory introduces a new concept termed as reinforcement. He stated that where behavior is reinforced, it is likely to be repeated or strengthened but the behavior which is not reinforced is doomed to stop. His theory meant that behavior is changed by the kind of reinforcements applied after the desired response has been shown (McLeod, 2015). Through his theory, he explained various types of responses succeeding...

Ceremonies and rituals among the Maasai is a very essential part of their culture and lifestyle. These rituals are very frequent in a boy and girl’s lifetime. Marriage in Maasai culture is one of the most important traditional activities ( Kesoi, 2008). Maasai weddings are a family affair and involve the combining of two lives, two families, and two communities. There are many different wedding traditions in Africa and no two are alike (Africa Guide, 2014). “ A man has to be married as soon as he undergoes the circumcision ceremony” ( Kesoi, 2008). Marriages are arranged by the fathers’ without consulting their children first.  Massai families are usually poor and aren’t able to afford formal schooling, so to protect their daughters from lives of poverty they choose to marry them off (Olekina, 2004). “The women are given to a man they do not know who is much older than themselves” (Africa Guide, 2014)....

After getting the basics about the foundation in forensics we will look at ballistics and how the specifics of ballistics started, who is the founder as well as what ballistics consist of. To the best of my ability, we will review different types of test preformed by a ballistic analyst. After gaining all of the knowledge of ballistics and forensics itself, we can then look at detailed steps in how to become a forensic ballistics analyst.

This field is one of the few areas of law enforcement where science, technology and crime-solving meet. This combination supports the Theory of Transfer: “When two objects meet, some evidence of that meeting can later be found and verified.” A few significant advances occurred in the years prior to 1800.

Pentecostalism, Provide a socio-historical analysis of chosen religion

I need an essay written with at least five hundred words on one American-born religion to analyze. Include the following: Provide a socio-historical analysis of chosen religion.

Describe whether or not the religion reflects a Christian worldview. Explain why. Include an Annotated Bibliography section with at least 10 sources, formatted in APA. (Description included as an attachment) ANSWER:   Pentecostalism   Pentecostalism was born in the second half of the nineteenth century out of the holiness revival. The revival was as a result of dissatisfaction of the lower of middle-class groups both socially and theologically. These individuals thought that the mainline denominations were not following the right order of holiness. Their allegations were that the already existing denominations were not living to their respective theological expectations. They, therefore, decided to form a new religious denomination that they thought would be more dedicated to meet the theological doctrines spelled out. The Protestants were mainly Methodists, Presbyterian, and Baptists. These believers believed that the Holy Spirit was being renewed in them and thus, it was time to heed to their calling. They wanted to be holy again and the only way possible to achieve this is by finding a denomination that they can have full control. This gave birth to “spirit baptism” which will would later give forth a denomination that was called Pentecostal. Among the reasons that gave rise to this denomination is the changing religion paradigm. Unlike the past where churches imposed rules and duties to its members, the new paradigm...

On April 18th of 1906 there were two events that can be distinctly remembered.

Essay 3: A Touchy Subject

Essay 3: A Touchy Subject (3 Pages | 760 Words)     In “A Touchy Subject,” Fussell discusses why social class is considered a sensitive topic. Fussell quotes that in the book Equality, R. H. Tawny mentions, “The word ‘class’ is fraught with unpleasing associations, so that to linger upon it is apt to be interpreted as the symptom of a perverted mind and a jaundiced spirit” (505). Social class is associated with different stereotypes and these are the factors that usually determine a person’s class. Although these stereotypes often come with a negative connotation, this is where most people have learn to distinguish different classes. Fussell mentions that people in different classes “define the thing that’s outraging you” will lead to revealing one’s class (506). This may be true because the bottom class lacks in money relative to the middle and upper class, so it is understandable that money would...

Essay 2 of The Photograph

Essay 2 of The Photograph (3 Pages | 891 Words)     The process of transcribing a memorable moment through photography can shape your understanding of the memory. In “The Photograph” by N. Scott Momaday, the photo is only mentioned in the last paragraph despite being the title of the short story. Momaday uses this strategy in order to set up the background story of what the Navajo reservation looks like and how the people that lives there behaves. Momaday’s slow and descriptive building of background information aids in his eventual discussion of the old Navajo woman and her disgusted reaction upon first seeing her own photograph. Momaday’s writing style can be used when transcribing other memories as it is universally beneficial. He describes the country as “it was wild and ending” (Paragraph 1). The descriptive scenery he uses to set up the setting of the short story is used as a precedent of what is expected of the Navajo people’s daily life and the difficulty they have to face as they live in this reserve. Momaday carefully explains, “In rainy weather the roads became channels of running water, and sometimes a flash flood would simply wash them away altogether, and we...

The Show and Tell of Safran Foer

The Show and Tell of Safran Foer (4 Pages | 1.354 Words)     The letter on page 216 in chapter, Why I’m Not Where You Are written by the father dated just about fifteen years after the past one, back in chapter 6. The abnormal thing about this passage is that numerous words and phrases are circled in a red pen, as if your least most favorite English instructor got his hands on it beforehand. Whoever did it is generally revolving around misspellings such as “actreses” and “bourgois” for example, but sometimes there are just circle phrases, “To my child:,” “Life is scarier than death,” and “I love you, Your father” (216). These red markings to me at first resembled the blood shed in the Dresdan bombing, but also Oskar’s dad used to read through the New York Times newspaper with a red pen while circling the mistakes that he would find within the articles. The red ink all over the letter written by Oskar’s grandfather not only recalls this idea, but also shows a link between these two men who, in real life, never knew each other, and yet were similar, at least in this perspective. Likewise, there’s a photograph of doorknob smack amidst the part. Grandpa’s keeping in touch with his child, Oskar’s father saying that he thinks of him a letter each day. He expounds on the night Anna let him know she was pregnant. That night, bombs fell on Dresden and everything was burned. He...
