Kennedy’s Domestic and Foreign Policies
President Kennedy was partly successful in accomplishing his vision of a ‘New Frontier’ both domestically and abroad.
President Kennedy introduced Civil Rights Act, to further the Civil Rights movement; due to his assassination, Kennedy never lived to see this act pass (which happened, during the Johnson administration, in 1963). Kennedy strived to develop the nation’s economy in a way that would benefit employers and employees; when Big Steel broke part of an informal bargain (by sharply raising prices), Kennedy called for an investigation and redirected governmental steel purchases to the smaller companies that had not raised prices (Davisson-Gienapp-Heyrman-Lytle-Stoff, 2005). Additionally, President Kennedy created the Peace Corps, initiated the ‘space race’ (which put a man on the moon in 1969), advocated on mental health issues, and worked with Congress on affordable housing, equal pay for women, and a host of other agendas.
President Kennedy was in office at the height of the Cold War, and though there was much to do in the United States, there were many conflicts that added foreign agenda. The covert invasion at the Bay of Pigs resulted in a “mismanaged disaster” and the same covert approach taken in Vietnam left the United States in the middle of a “Vietnamese civil war”. In 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis left the United States in the “peril of nuclear confrontation” when spy planes discovered Soviet offensive missile sites in Cuba. The end of this crisis came when the exchange agreement was reached with Russia to remove the sites in Cuba and the United States would not invade Russia’s ally (Davisson-Gienapp-Heyrman-Lytle-Stoff,…...

Sony's event was more of a teaser than an unveiling, though: The company never actually showed the new console or named a price. But what we did see was enough to stoke our excitement. We always expect the next generation of gaming consoles to be smarter, stronger, and faster than the previous one. The PlayStation 4 certainly looks ready to deliver in that regard. The visuals were stunning on the game demos we were shown, and Sony claims that we will be able to download and update games in the background while playing. That's huge for anyone who has ever sat down to play a brand-new game, only to have to wait a half an hour for updates. While we didn't see the PS4 itself, we did get a glimpse of its new...

Women’s Health: the Final Frontier

...Women’s Health: the Final Frontier Throughout history women have typically been stereotyped as being the child-bearers, and have not received much medical care or medical research beyond the reproductive organs and their functions. A woman’s body contains more than just her ovaries and uterus, but since men are predominantly in the fields of healthcare and research, this stereotype that only the reproductive organs matter continues to perpetuate and plague American women. Women account for 42% of all deaths related to heart disease and heart attacks; deaths caused by cancers have increased exponentially since the beginning of the twentieth century (Kaiser Foundation online). Although these facts are frightening, more frightening is the lack of understanding and treatment. Each year thousands of women live without the necessary healthcare and treatment in order to stay healthy; and most treatment and awareness education for women is geared towards reproduction. The U.S Department of Health and Human Services came out with a report entitled “Women’s Health Issues: An Overview” back in May of 2001. This overview states that “until recently, medical research has largely ignored many health issues important to women, and women have long been under-represented in clinical trials.” The result of this under-representation in clinical trials is that medical doctors give treatments to women as they would to men. This can potentially harm the woman, because women and...

Emerging from the Frontier

...Summary of the Case: According to the article we are able to know that the year of 2013 is the turning point for South Africa because of their economic growth. They believe that 2013 is the year of continent becomes a destination of choice for global choice. We have come to know that South Africa’s economies grown very strongly. On the other hand sub-Saharan economies such as Nigeria, Ethiopia, Angola, Ghana, Cote d’ivoire, Kenya, Uganda; while countries of developing world facing economic uncertainty.The economic growth of South Africa is not only by its wealth of natural resources but also by its investments in agriculture and manufacturing. There are lots of opportunities for private sectors now in Africa. As because of Asia’s economies growth is slow and their labor wages rise therefore Africa will become the next preferred destination for labours intensive manufacturing of products such as garments sector. They are attracted by people for their low-cost and light manufacturing though it’s still important to need to work on their humanitarian interventions. Africa will emerge in a respected member of global community in few years. Their new mission will be how to do the work in development aid to attract more private sectors. Suddenly, Africa’s economies changed for their three reasons. First of all, global uncertainty continues to be the norm in 2013, trade and investment flows between Africa and BRIC (BRAZIL, RUSSIA, INDIA, and CHINA). The second reason is Africa...

Space: the Final Frontier

...SPACE: The Final Frontier Space, the final frontier. For years man has been fascinated with the vast, boundless, emptiness that surrounds and cradles our miniscule planet. Although it’s difficult to determine exactly what got me hooked on space exploration, I know it’s mainly about the discovery of things past-unknown to myself, or even the world. The technological and mechanical aspects very much intrigue me as well, in addition to it’s ability to bring many rivals together at a temporary truce for the sake of discovering something for all of mankind. Every kid has spend at least one day of their life looking up at the sky and thinking “I wonder what it’s like up there.” Maybe even wishing you could one day go up there and see for yourself. I had these childhood days, and still occasionally do. I ask myself, “What have we not discovered yet?” and “When will we make the next breakthrough of discovery, and how will that affect us as mankind?” I may think to myself and get lost in the concept that there is so much yet undiscovered to humans. Science has always been a strong-point of mine, as it is a subject built around, and constructed upon the basis of discovery. It comes as a surprise to many why we know so little about something that is so vast and limitless, not to mention something we are completely surrounded by! Space is incredibly , for lack of a better word, alien, to us. Some may argue that we know a lot about the universe outside the bounds of our earth’s...

Neuromarketing: the New Frontier of Marketing

...Neuromarketing: The New Frontier of Marketing Throughout our class discussions and papers written, we have debated opposing arguments about the ethical repercussions of marketing to children. In this paper I have decided to take it to an alternative level and evaluate the forefront of marketing, where it is heading, how it works, and attempt to bridge the gap on how this form of research affect children of various ages. Along with all of this, another debatable topic is the moral and ethical issues faced with this expanding sect of marketing. Neuromarketing: What is it? Neuromarketing is a new field of marketing research that studies consumers' sensorimotor, cognitive, and affective response to marketing stimuli. According to some, neuromarketing will change market research and marketing fundamentally. This new form of research is derived from the argument that people don't and can't really know what motivates them, because much of our mental processes are unconscious. However, the truth is that most decisions do involve both automatic, instinctive reactions, and elements of control and consideration. Tools of Neuromarketing: There are many tools used in the study of neuroscience to determine specific chemical changes as well as neurological changes in the human brain. It is the understanding that the researcher’s use of these tools can measure various levels of change in the human body when visually confronted with images and/or video clips. The results of...

Development of the Western Frontier

...Name: Tutor: Course: Date: Development of the Western Frontier Frederick Jackson turner developed a thesis called the frontier thesis where he conquers that the democracy of America was established by the Western frontier. He also stated that the democracy of America resulted from violence and the absence of interests in high culture. He continued to state that the Frontier land was acquired, and there was no need to establish institutions to attain it. His insistence on the frontier’s need to shape the country led to a pool of responses found in many articles. His works led to the use of social history as the underlying grounds for all socio-economic and political progress in the history of America. When Turner died, history departments were teaching frontier history based on his approach. For a long time, the history of America has been largely tied to the colonization history of the Great west. The presence of free land and the settlement of Americans to the west explain the progress of America. American institutions have been required to change with the increase of the diversity and population of people and facilitate the transformation from backward political and economic ways to civilization. Development in some nations has only taken place in some areas, but in America, development has been widespread. However, there is a frontier line still facing primitive conditions along the western part. Nevertheless, the history of America is not based on the western...

The Frontier Myth

...Essay The Frontier Myth ------------------------------------------------- “Up to our own day American history has been in a large degree the history of the colonization of the Great West. The existence of an area of free land, its continuous recession, and the advance of American settlement westward explain American development. (…)American social development has been continually beginning over again on the frontier. This perennial rebirth, this fluidity of American life, this expansion westward with its new opportunities, its continuous touch with the simplicity of primitive society, furnish the forces dominating American character.” Source: http://www.learner.org/workshops/primarysources/corporations/docs/turner.html Frederick Jackson Turner The Frontier is a prominent symbol of American culture. Although it intimidated the colonists and later Americans, it did not prevent them from spreading. What drove them was “the idea of unlimited free land, a sense of unlimited opportunity and optimism”1. The idea of the frontier was significant in American culture between 1860 and 1893 because it was considered by many to be “the last frontier.” “Since the beginning of the European settlements, westward expansion had always served as an inspiration to those dreaming to start a new life.”1 With the last of the frontier being absorbed into civilization, its importance to the American people rose more than ever. Frederick Jackson Turner said that this closing of the frontier...

The New Marketing Frontier

...The changing media landscape of the 21st century is requiring marketers and media organizations to rethink their forms of media planning. This paper reviews the development of marketing communication planning and moves into the current and future multimedia marketplace. The New Marketing Frontier Sundeep Kumar Mohanty PGDM 13-15 IBA, Bangalore The New Marketing Frontier Over the last 20 years, there have been advances in marketing media outlets and strategies. One of the more recent forms is referred to as Social Media Marketing. This method can be defined in a number of ways, but one of the best descriptions came from a marketing professor at The University of Cincinnati, Ric Sweeny, “Social media marketing is the ability to use nontraditional communication and connection to build a brand.” Social media is one of today’s biggest forms of communication and it has not only changed the way people interact everyday but also the way companies communicate. Today's marketers have adapted the various forms of social media to perform a business purpose. As a result the adaptation of social media has taken been a focus of innovation and ideas for the marketing world. Contemporary forms of social media are found in two very popular websites, Facebook and Twitter. Together, these sites are defining the platform for social media in the digital world, and continue to adapt and evolve with advances in technology and consumer preferences. The big debate over social media marketing...

American Frontier History

... development of the steers business influenced area possession in the southwest, to the impediment of Mexican Americans. The United States had made a guarantee to Mexico to secure the flexibility and property of Mexicans who stayed in the range ceded to the United States, yet American farmers and different pilgrims took control of regional governments and constrained Hispanic pioneers off their territory. Animosity and brutality, in addition, invested much of Western life. Threats flared in the middle of pioneers and Native Americans, as well as in the middle of farmers and agriculturists, sheepherders and cows farmers, Mormons and non-Mormons, and work and administration. Notwithstanding all these strains, Americans and new migrants put into the West suffered ethnic hostility. Pioneers who made homesteads in the plains in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas confronted troublesome and separated lives. They likewise lost much of their autonomy. Conclusion The frontier was a piece of American national character. The frontier had spoken to a kind of break instrument for Americans. The likelihood of break into the wild to make another life and even another personality disappeared too, and individuals felt just as their energy to make their lives after the disappearance of the frontier. A large portion of the pilgrims on the frontier crossed from eastern ranches or more seasoned frontiers. Of city occupants, the frontier tricked the adolescent,......

Production Possibilities Frontier (Ppf)

...Dr. Mohammed Alwosabi Econ 140 – Ch.2 Notes on Chapter 2 PRODUCTION POSSIBILITIES FRONTIER This chapter reinforces the central themes of Chapter one by laying out the core economic model, the PPF, and using it to illustrate the concepts of scarcity, tradeoff and opportunity cost. It explains, with a model, the concepts of marginal cost and marginal benefit, introduces efficiency, and explains how we can expand production by accumulating capital and improving technology. The economic problem of allocating resources (making choices) in a situation of scarcity can be illustrated by explaining the concept of the production possibilities frontier (PPF). Production Possibilities Frontier (PPF) refers to the maximum combinations of goods and services an economy can produce efficiently using its available resources and technology within a given period of time. It is the boundary between the goods and services that can be produced from those that cannot. The PPF model is a graphical illustration with the following assumptions 1. The society has a fixed amount of available common resources. i.e., the same limited resources can be used to produce either of the goods. 2. The society has a fixed amount of technology 3. Full employment of resources 4. The choice is between producing two goods: Machines and Food. All other goods and services are assumed being the same (ceteris paribus). This assumption is to allow the use of simple graphical analysis. Note that these assumptions...

The Israeli Frontier by Banksy

...The artist Banksy is an anonymous artist known for the severals graffiti he made around the world. He could be from Bristol in England. He mostly uses the stencil technique to achieve his work. His graffitis are sometimes accompagned of text. Thanks to his art, he criticizes the modern society and give strong messages. He started in Street art towards 1992-1994. His age might be around 30 years (he was born in 1974) The context Since Israel creation in 1948, a lot of conflicts took place between Israel and Palestine and some others Middle East countries. In 2002, Israel decided to build a wall to protect the country from the Palestinian attacks. The aim was to separate Israeli and Palestinian population. The wall became the symbol of a closed and militarized frontier. Description This graffti represents two children playing as if they were on a beach, with sceau and pelles. We can see that these two characters have been stenciled on the wall. They seem happy to be playing on the sand. They are represented in black and white in contrast with the sceau which is yellow. The two children are shirtless, but we don’t know if it is to evoke heat or poverty. Above the 2 children, we see like a hole, in which there is a paradisiac and sunny landscape, with palmiers, cocotiers, turquoise water, white sand and a beach. The wall seems broken. Interpretation Through this graffiti, Bansky tries to criticize war stupidity. It is why he decided to paint on this......

The New Frontier: Data Analytics

...Assignment 1: The New Frontier: Data Analytics xxxxxx Professor xxxx CIS500: Information System Decision Making April 17, 20xx Strayer University The New Frontier: Data Analytics Abstract The word “tweet” was first defined as “a chirping noise” whose origin dated back to 1768. Since 2011, Merriam Webster dictionary extends that definition to mean “a post made on the Twitter online messaging service”. Mention of the adoption of “tweet” into the Merriam Webster Dictionary is designed to illustrate two main points; that information can be ambiguous and that technology can reweave the very fabric of human culture. According to research done by Zikopoulos, Eaton, Deroos, Deutsch, & Lapis (2012), there exists 800,000 petabytes (PB) of data stored in the world in the year 2000. By their estimates, that number could reach 35 zettabytes (ZB) by the year 2020 (p. 39). The ability to analyze and process the enormous amount of data is a costly undertaking for companies that are behind the curve and a lucrative business for those that are ahead of the game. Each tweet and post contribution from the users that share the web space further buries the proverbial haystack. It is the ability to sift through the data that determines whether a company can gain traction in their respective industry or if they are simply spinning their wheels. This research paper, centered on Capital Cube and their parent company analytixinsight, will aim to discuss how data analytics is paramount to...

The New West Frontier

... usually only interpret the traces of the “white imperialist”. However, starting in the 1960’s a new wave of American historians sought to uncover the “untold” immigrant and minority past as well as exposing the truth of the “American Experience”. These “New West” historians refer to Slotkin and others as part of the "consensus school" because their narratives of American westward expansion are so tidy. For instance, in contrast the so-called virgin land of opportunity “that was relatively unsettled”, Limerick takes a more proactive stance on the symbols of the American West in her book: The Legacy of Conquest: the Unbroken Past of the American West. She describes the land as much more urbanized-“ there is very little rural, wild west, land left” and as an exploitive place for minorities, women and immigrants. She details that women were very present in the frontier and often took the roles of their male-counterparts. Additionally, because these ‘New West” historians approach history in a complex manner, they cannot simply replace minority mythic characters like Joaquin Murrieta in place of Daniel Boone. Instead, they analyze the characters, environment and agents at play for who and what they are. For instance, director John Sayles creates a mythic relationship between the recently deceased, Sherriff Buddy Deeds and the town, in his movie Lone Star. However, he does not keep Sherriff Buddy Deed’s character static, despite his death. We learn about Buddy and his......

Cis 500 - the New Frontier-Data Analytics

...The New Frontier: Data Analytics CIS 500: Information Systems For Decision-Making Anywhere we travel on the internet we have been bombarded with seemingly codependent requests to, “Like US!”, “Follow US!”, “Watch US!”, “Share US!” from businesses of all types. If you think about it, this is exactly the dynamic. Businesses are in a dependent relationship, relying on the consumers for their survival. If a business wants to engage and remain in a viable relationship, it has to have a product/service the consumer desires and be able to deliver it in a manner that the consumer perceives as valuable. Even if a business has the “next greatest thing”, the consumer will not engage/continue in the relationship if the business does not or cannot provide it in a valuable way to the consumer. Amazon is one company that has been able to successfully develop this dynamic relationship. So then how does a business become and remain successful in the relationship? They need a better understanding of what the consumer wants by improving their Business Intelligence (BI). For decades, businesses have used statistics to analyze data to obtain information and insights for improving BI. With the advent of the computer, data analysis moved from statistical based inferences about the data to a more scientific method based on empirical results. This was the foundational begins of Data Analytics. Data Analytics, as defined in our course text is, specialized software, capabilities...
