Justification of Documents
Building Constituencies – attracting support and supporters, moving people to act, increasing the commitment and involvement of existing supporters.

The reason I chose the 20 primary sources that I did was because I felt they represented a good timeline of how constituencies were formed from 1890-1960. These documents I chose reflect both the variety and struggle specific groups and individuals faced throughout the time period. Beginning with Ida B. Wells in the 1890, and ending with the struggles the NAACP faced in the 1950’s, the ability to build support was often met with the challenges of racism and oppression. No other person exemplified this struggle more so then Ida B. Wells. Even though Ida enjoyed a substantial following through her writings of books, and speech making, she still faced threats to her and was even exiled and forced to leave the United States, and go to England. Although dealt this major setback in her forced move to England, Ida. B. did not become discouraged and continued her work in fighting for equality for blacks in the South. In her writing of the Red Record, and Southern Horrors, Ida was able to capture the horrific climate lynching in the South. Because of this work, Ida transformed many peoples perception of the South where before her work many believed that almost all types of oppression ended with the conclusion of the Civil War. As a result of this shift in public opinion, Ida began receiving substantial funding from not only whites in the North, but also from England; whom the South depended on heavily because of their trade relations. Through these efforts, Ida was responsible for starting groups such as the anti-lynching Bureau, and the NAACP. These organizations that were formed in large part because of Ida B. Wells can be judged as perhaps the biggest reason why lynching in…...

Compare and Contrast the Ideas and Positions of Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells-Barnett and W.E.B. Dubois. Critically Evaluate the Strength and Weaknesses of Each

...22/25 “Compare and contrast the ideas and positions of Booker T. Washington, Ida B. Wells-Barnett and W.E.B. DuBois. Critically evaluate the strength and weaknesses of each.” Black History 140B Professor Katungi 3-12-03 Booker Taliaferro Washington was born a slave on a plantation in Franklin Country, Virginia in 1856. One of our nations most powerful black educators; he illustrated his belief in the dignity of work. He was very skilled in politics and influential for both black and white communities. “There was no period of my life that was devoted to play.” He expressed his concept of hard work was the cornerstone of his social philosophy. Booker T. became a principle and guiding force behind Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institution in Hampton, Alabama during 1881. He felt that industrial education was a way out from the horrible sharecropping and debt. His plan also wanted to achieve self-employment, land ownership and small businesses. “Yet one has the hand in all things essential to mutual progress”, being a personal quote from Booker T. at the Atlanta Compromise address in 1895. His major role was to influence the area of race relations and black leadership. He attacked racism and secretly founder of many anti-segregationist activities. Booker T. wanted to help black Americans rise up from the economic slavery, that had held them down long after they were legally free citizens. As being a dominant figure in black public affairs from 1895 until...

Ida Orlando

...Nursing Theory Paper Nurs/403 March 7, 2011 Jacqueline DePaulis Nursing Theory Paper Many different nursing theories have been developed by leaders in the nursing field over the past 40 years. I chose the nurse theorist, Ida Jean Orlando because of my lack of knowledge of Ms. Orlando and her theory, The Deliberative Nursing Process. She was one of the first nursing theorists to write about the nursing process based on her own research. This theory involves interpersonal processes occurring between a patient and a nurse that will identify an immediate need of that patient (Mosby, 2010). Ms. Orlando believed nurses should have more input in a patient’s care than was allowed by the constraints of policies, job description, and protocols. This theory is used in education, nursing, and nursing practice today. Similar to all theories, The Deliberative Nursing Process defines what part the environment, health, person, and nursing roles assume. Background of Ida Jean Orlando Ida Jean Orlando was born in 1926, a first generation of Italian Americans. She received a nursing diploma from New York Medical College. Her first job was at a maternity hospital. Feeling less than challenged as a nurse in her decision making, she went on to receive her Bachelor’s of Science in Pubic Health from St. John's University in Brooklyn, New York. She went into pubic health hoping to find more autonomy but was disappointed to find it consisted of policies and protocols in which the...

Study Well

...Introduction Study habits are approaches applied to learning. They are generally critical to success in school, are considered essential for acquiring good grades, and are useful for learning throughout one's life. There are arrays of study skills, which may tackle the process of organizing and taking in new information, retaining information, or dealing with assessments. They include mnemonics, which aid the retention of lists of information, effective reading and concentration techniques, as well as efficient note taking. While often left up to the student and their support network, study skills are increasingly taught at High School and University level. More broadly, any skill which boosts a person's ability to study and pass exams can be termed a study skill, and this could include time management and motivational techniques. Study habits are discrete techniques that can be learned, usually in a short time, and applied to all or most fields of study. They must therefore be distinguished from strategies that are specific to a particular field of study e.g. music or technology, and from abilities inherent in the student, such as aspects of intelligence or learning style. Background of the Study The term study habits are used for general approaches to learning, skills for specific courses of study. There are many theoretical works on the subject, and a vast number of popular books and websites. Manuals for students have been published since the 1940s. In the 1950s and...

Well

...Drilling is not only for producing pore fluids (oil, water, gas) but also for: Gaining information about the sub-surface; -Allowing injection of fluids; -Exploiting geothermal resources; -Disposing Waste (nuclear waste); -Drilling training/research wells. There are six basic reasons for drilling a well. 1. Information from sub surface is required. This may be to identify hydrocarbon reservoirs, coal seams or other mineral deposits. 2. Allow fluids to be produced from within the Earth. Hydrocarbons are a valuable resource but wells are also drilled for water in arid areas. 3. Allow fluids to be injected underground. Within an oil reservoir, it is sometimes necessary to pump in water to maintain reservoir pressure as oil is produced. 4. Where high downhole temperatures are present at reasonably shallow depths, water can be pumped in to the well to generate steam. The steam drives a turbine to generate electricity. 5. In geologically stable areas, wells may be drilled to dispose of nuclear waste which requires long term safe isolation. 6. Wells may be drilled for training. These wells allow students to practice tripping pipe or casing. Some include a facility to inject fluids at the bottom of the well to simulate a kick. Objectives of Drilling Operations -Minimize the total well cost (i.e. maximize return on investment) -Drill a useable hole (minimize formation damage) -Drill well in a safe and environmentally sound manner...

... assumes that the capacity of the new refinery will be 150 million barrels instead of the 120 million barrels assumed in the original Texago case study. (a) Formulate and solve a model to find an optimal plan for shipping 360 million barrels of crude oil per year from the oil fields to the refineries, including the new one in St. Louis, where the amount of crude oil each refinery will receive (up to its 15 hil61217_ch08_case.qxd 16 5/12/04 17:12 Page 16 ADDITIONAL CASES capacity) is based on minimizing the total annual cost for these shipments. (Hint: If you are using a spreadsheet model, you can save some time in this and subsequent parts by using the live spreadsheets for the Texago case study in this chapter’s Excel files as a starting point and then making the adjustments needed to reflect the increased capacity of the new refinery.) Compare the resulting total annual cost for these shipments with the results obtained in Fig. 4 under the original assumption of a smaller refinery in St. Louis. (b) Assume that the plan found in part (a) will be used. Since this plan specifies how much crude oil each refinery will receive, it also dictates how much final product each refinery will supply. On this basis, formulate and solve a model to find an optimal plan for shipping finished product from the refineries to the distribution centers. Compare the resulting total annual cost for these shipments with the results obtained in Fig. 8. Also...

... as a corporation is more suited to his development. Through a corporation organization, Stan has limited reliability towards the company’s responsibilities and actions. If he choose to form the business as a sole proprietor he has unlimited liability and can be held accountable for any incident that may occur possibly losing all personal assets. Forming a corporation will become more reliable financially being approved for the actual plan and given a larger loan. This organization also has possible shareholders that can invest in the company. With sole proprietor the bank has leverage over Stan and can dictate certain agreements that can give them a larger profit. He would also be liable for breaches of the contracts that are made by the company or his employees. Analyzing both business methods and the benefits both provide, operating as a business corporation is the most beneficial route for Stan to pursue his toxic waste plan.
