I wasn’t thinking of planning to kill anyone when I was a ten year old girl. Why would I? In 1994 I was in school and during the summer I would hang out with my friends till it got dark and my parents called me to come in. I was playing softball with a travel team back then as well. I wasn’t thinking of planning to kill anyone when I was a ten year old girl. I also have a good conscience unfortunately, that if I ever murdered anyone even if it was someone I didn’t like I would probably be one of those kids that would tell their mother right away and face the music. That however, was not the case with Little Mary Bell. In this paper I will Summarize three key aspects of the juvenile case study that you selected, highlight at least three factors that you believe are important for one to understand the origins of the juvenile’s delinquent behavior, apply at least two concepts from the theory that you chose from the text that would help explain the juvenile’s behavior, Identify one appropriate strategy geared toward preventing delinquency that is consistent with the theory you chose. Mary knew at age ten how to kill someone and how to do it right. “She now claimed that Mary told her she killed Brian, and brought her to see his body at the blocks. Mary told Norma "I squeezed his neck and pushed up his lungs that's how you kill them. Keep your nose dry and don't tell anybody." When she saw Brian, Norma knew he was dead. "His lips were purple. Mary ran her fingers along his lips. She said she had enjoyed it.” She is an incredible liar "I have reason to believe that when you were near the blocks with Norma," said Dobson. "A man shouted at some children who were nearby and you both ran away from where Brian was lying in the grass. This man will probably know you.” "He would have to have good eyesight," she…...

Taco Bell

...why Taco Bell restaurants should be an investment. This report is designed for Ms. Yolanda Yorbon, the current boss at Yolanda’s Yummy Restaurant. She has asked me and my research team to do some investigative work and present it in a long formal report. This will help her to determine which fast food franchise she should make an investment in between McDonald’s, Taco Bell, and Burger King. I will be examining the background behind the business, start-up costs, commitment, locations, requirements to work, requirements to franchise, and the ongoing fees for Taco Bell. Ms. Yolanda’s expertise is in the area of Mexican food. She really wants to be successful in other restaurant business ventures, and this is the way to provide the answers. Taco Bell Corp., based in Irvine, California, is the nation's leading Mexican-style chain. Taco Bell was founded by Glen Bell who first opened a hot dog stand in 1946 when he was 23 years old. Six years later, he sold the stand and opened a new one two years later, this time selling tacos under the name of Taco-Tia. Bell sold the El Tacos to his partner and built the first Taco Bell in Downey in 1962. Taco Bell Corp. started franchising in 1964. In 1970, Taco Bell went public with 325 restaurants. In 1978, PepsiCo purchased Taco Bell from Glen Bell. Taco Bell sells tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and many other Mexican foods. This would be great for Ms. Yolanda because her expertise is in Mexican food. Before starting up a Taco Bell......

...Specific Purpose: This is to inform my audience of the life of Alexander Graham Bell and his contributions to the field of Communications. Introduction: In 1876, at the age of 29, Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. In 1877, he formed the Bell Telephone Company. He would continue to test out new ideas through a long and productive life. He would explore the realm of communications as well as engage in a great variety of scientific activities involving kites, airplanes, structures, sheep-breeding, artificial respiration, and water distillation. There are many topics of interest that should be discussed, but for this presentation I will focus on three main points which are: A. Early years and education B. Invention of the telephone C. Contributions and effect the telephone had on the ease to communicate Body: 1. During his youth, Alexander Graham Bell experienced significant influences that would carry into his adult life. One was his hometown of Edinburgh, Scotland, known as the "Athens of the North," for its rich culture of arts and science. Another was his grandfather, Alexander Bell, a well-known professor. Alexander's mother also had a profound influence on him, being a proficient pianist despite her deafness. This taught Alexander to look past people's disadvantages and find solutions to help them. 2. In the 1870s, two inventors Elisha Gray and Alexander Graham Bell both independently designed devices that could transmit speech......

Liberty Bell

...Sound of the Freedom- The Liberty Bell Figure 1 Liberty Bell Forever Stamp Figure 1 Liberty Bell Forever Stamp Meaning can be found even in the most mundane of objects. For instance, consider the USA First Class stamp. On its upper left corner, the number 2008 shows that this stamp was produced in year 2008. The right side of the stamp says “USA FIRST-CLASSS FOREVER”, meaning that this postage stamp is valid for First-Class postage in the United States no matter when it is used. There is an extraordinary metal bell is in the middle of the stamp – the Liberty Bell, a venerable historic relic that I am going to analyze in the rest of this research paper. The bell was first known by the world as a metal musical instrument in ancient China. Tuned bells in that age were created and played to be performed only for imperial families and noblemen, as a symbol of power and status. Later on, bells became widely used in different religions. For example, bells played an important role in the Eastern world of Buddhism and Hinduism as temple bells. In western world, bells were commonly used as church bells or town bells for gathering people together. In 1752, the Quaker William Penn, legislator and founder of the Pennsylvania colony in 1682, had decided and commissioned the bell to be cast in London, and brought to North America to hang in the State House of the colony of Pennsylvania. “They had ordered very......

...Global Operations Taco Bell Case TACO BELL CASE 1. Draw a diagram of the process using the format in Exhibit 7.3. 2. Consider a base case where a customer arrives every 40 seconds and the Customer Service Champion can handle 120 customers per hour. There are two Food Champions, each capable of handling 100 orders per hour. How long should it take to be served by the restaurant (from the time a customer enters the kiosk queue until her food is delivered)? Use queuing models to estimate this. λ=Arrival Rate μ=Service Rate Based on M/M/1 Model So, λ=360040=90 Customers per hour μS (Service Champion)= 120 Customers per hour μF (Food Champion)= 200 Customers per hour Now, we need to calculate Average Total Time spent by customer in complete system: Ls (Service Champion) =λμ-λ Ls = 90120-90=3 Customers Ws (Service Champion) = Lsλrnote Ws = 390=0.033 hour or 2 min or 120 sec Ls (Food Champion) =λμ-λ Ls = 90200-90=0.82 customer Ws (Food Champion) = Lsλ Ws = 0.8290=0.009 hour or 0.54minor32.72sec ∴Total Average Time=WService+ WFood =120+32.72=152.72 seconds 3.

Bells Palsy

...Bells Palsy Bell’s palsy is a condition that causes the facial muscles to weaken or become paralyzed. It's caused by trauma to the seventh cranial nerve, and is not permanent (There have been cases where the patient has not recovered). Bell's Palsy is not as uncommon as one might think. Worldwide statistics set the frequency at just over .02% of the population. Statistically this is one of every 5000 people over the course of a lifetime and 40,000 Americans every year [1]. Diabetics are more than four times more likely to develop Bell's palsy than the general population and the last trimester of pregnancy is considered to be a time of increased risk for Bell's palsy [2]. In 2004 I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy and it was at this point I decided that I needed to do all necessary research to make sure I would make a full recovery. Soon after diagnosis I learned that a number of factors not limited to but including; Herpes Simplex One, stress, insufficient sleep, upper respiratory infections, Rubella, Mumps, and Lyme disease could potentially cause Bells Palsy. Treatment usually consists of a physician prescribing an antiviral or steroid medication as this is thought to speed up recovery time. Symptoms usually last for less than 3 months but can last longer in extreme cases. In addition to antiviral or steroidal medication, there are alternate treatment options for someone looking to make as full a recovery as possible. One treatment, although controversial is......

Liberty Bell

...Liberty Bell Authorizing the Liberty Bell Therefore, the Pennsylvania Assembly ordered the purchase of a new bell. The Assembly authorized Robert Charles, the Assembly’s London agent, to commission the casting of a bell weighing about 2,000 pounds with inscription instructons provided by the Assembly. On November 1, 1751, Mr. Charles comissioned the White Chapel Bell Foundry to cast the bell. The colony paid about $300 for the bell. In 1732 constructon began on the State House (now called Independence Hall) to house Pennsylvania’s government body—the Pennsylvania Assembly. The bell tower, complete with a bell, was completed in 1751. However, the bell was not audible throughout Philadelphia. Cracking the Original Bell The bell arrived in August 1752—ten months after it was commissioned. The assembly members wanted to test the bell before installing it. However, the bell cracked upon being rung because the metal was extremely brittle. Casting another Bell John Pass and John Stow, two of Philadelphia’s founders, were commissioned to recast and solidify the bell. They broke down the original bell, added more metals to strengthen it, and recast. The new bell was installed in the State House bell tower in March 1753. However, Philadelphians were displeased with its sound. Therefore, Pass and Stow recast the bell once again. The new—and third version—of the Old State House Bell was installed in June 1753. The Old State House Bell became known as the Liberty Bell in 1839 by......

...Accession of Mary Mary’s accession generally accepted and favoured by the English people, most likely because she was a legitimate successor There was the issue with Lady Jane Grey – Northumberland attempted to make his daughter-in-law, Lady Jane Grey, the successor after Edward. She was Queen for nine days, but was deposed and Mary carried on as legitimate successor. Faction Mary was determined to fill the council with loyal people, but she couldn’t prevent all rivalries! = Gardiner vs. Paget. The rivalry emerged over Mary’s marriage issue. Gardiner proposed that Mary should marry Courtnay, and Paget argued she should marry Phillip of Spain Some were also sceptical of some of her policies, such as the effectiveness of the burning of protestants. However, despite some disagreements with her policies, she managed to obtain agreement for 3 major steps: the full return to Rome in religion, her marriage to the heir of the Spanish throne and the declaration of war on France Faction was much less of a problem in Mary’s reign than her predecessors, with a greater sense of continuity and solidarity among most councillors. Marriage The first question on everybody’s lips was “Who should marry Mary?” Edward Courtney vs. Phillip of Spain Why Phillip? He was a Catholic He was Spanish, and Mary was half Spanish after all! He had more political experience as he had already been regent in the Netherlands Spain has money and owns most of Europe and the Americas It would......

The Bell

...The Bell Jar like one of Mrs Guinea's novels is 'crammed from beginning to end with long, suspenseful questions'. It examines the character of feminism and, in so doing, begs the question of the relationship between men and women. It looks at the nature of insanity and enquires as to its causes and cure. It questions literature, novelists, suicide, medical practice, American society and so on and so forth. But are these questions ever answered? 'What I hate is being under a man's thumb'. This is a feminist statement if ever there were one, but is The Bell Jar a feminist novel? There are some feminist innuendoes. Jay Cee is a heroic feminist figure, named by her initials in the American business fashion and in her 'strict business suit' and 'luncheon ticket hat'. She has 'brains' to make up for her 'plug-ugly' looks in comparison with the archetypal male Buddy Willard who is 'stupid' although he can 'get good marks all right'. And there is an implied resentment that men have certain privileges denied to women. Only a boy baby may have the privilege of peeing in a doctor's face. Teresa, Dr Quinn and Dr Nolan can be doctors and Joan can aspire to be a psychiatrist but only Dr Gordon can charge twenty-five dollars an hour. Esther could have taken a medical degree if she had not 'dodged chemistry' but her degree in English is of no value without a knowledge of shorthand to enable her to be an acolyte of a man. Esther would have liked to have been a translator but her......

Bell Jar

...Period D English The Theme of “Identity” In The Bell Jar Humans’ lives are shaped by success and failure within their personal life, and their relationships with one another. This is expressed in The Bell Jar, a novel written by Sylvia Plath. Plath is concerned almost entirely with the education and maturation of the novel’s main character, Esther Greenwood. The Bell Jar uses a chronological structure to constantly keep Esther in focus. Though significant, the other characters are secondary to Esther and her developing character. As Esther’s character develops, she becomes more central and relatable to the reader. The reader tends to sympathize with Esther’s character. We all at one time have felt that we just did not quite fit in. Esther tries to adjust herself to those that surround her by observing different personalities and trying to find the right one for her. We lose respect for ourselves if we allow others to determine who we are and who we ought to be. Esther’s dive into depression has made her unsure and unsatisfied with the world around her. This leads her thoughts to become dark and eventually attempt suicide. But this novel is much more than a story about suicide, it is a journey that inspires a new beginning, mentally and spiritually. In The Bell Jar, Esther Greenwood’s struggle to deal with the pressures of social and personal life lead her into a dark place full of negative thoughts and depression. Esther feels trapped in her own mind with no escape......

Taco Bell

...Taco Bell is an American chain of fast-food restaurants based in Irvine, California. A subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc., they serve a variety of Tex-Mex foods including tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, other specialty items, and a variety of "value menu" items. Taco Bell serves more than 2 billion customers each year in more than 6,500 restaurants mostly in the U.S., more than 80 percent of which are owned and operated by independent franchisees. History Founding and growth Taco Bell was founded by Glen Bell, who first opened a hot dog stand called Bell's Drive-In in San Bernardino, California Bell began eating there regularly, attempting to reverse-engineer the recipe, and eventually won the confidence of the proprietors such that they allowed him to see how the tacos and other foods were prepared. Several locations in the Midwestern United States were converted from Zantigo, a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Mexican chain which PepsiCo acquired in 1986. Concepts In 1991, Taco Bell opened the first Taco Bell Express in San Francisco. This concept is a reduced-size restaurant with a limited menu, meant to emphasize volume. Taco Bell Express locations operate primarily inside convenience stores, truck stops, shopping malls, and airports. Taco Bell began co-branding with KFC in 1995, when the first such co-brand opened in Clayton, North Carolina. The chain has since co-branded with Pizza Hut and Long John Silver's as well. In 1997, PepsiCo experimented with a......

Taco Bell

...Taco Bell Strategy: Martin launched what he called the "four-by-four strategy," a bold plan that meant increasing the number of achieving companywide sales of $4 billion by the end of 1991. To accomplish this there had to be a key change in corporate thinking. The company had to understand it was not competing with other Mexican restaurants, but rather fast-food in general. This meant going head-to-head with well-established fast-food restaurants like McDonalds. To accomplish this, the mindset and capabilities of the company had to be changed. 1983 – 1988: The Company set about modernizing the company’s physical units. This included remodeling existing restaurants, increasing seating capacity, and adding drive-through windows. New signs were installed with an updated company logo and employees were outfitted with more contemporary uniforms. In addition the company experienced a 23% increase in growth by expanding into new regions in the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast. New electronic Point of Sales systems were added enabling a more efficient ordering system within the restaurant as well as allowing the company to track sales, product mix and inventory. New menu items were also introduced which allowed for more choices for the customer. 1988 – 1991: Strategy shifted to customer value (lower prices while preserving quality). Cost reduction was the focus which required a radical redefinition of the business. K-Minus was implemented where processes were transferred to......

An Analysis of Mary Bell

...An Analysis Of Mary Bell Strayer University CRJ 180 Professor Abreu At such a young age of eleven years, Mary Bell had nearly perfected the intricate, deceptive and disturbing superior intelligence outlining the characteristics of a psychopath. Her actions to rule her in such a category included the murders of two young boys, Martin Brown, age 4, and Brian Howe, age 3. Also uncovered throughout the investigation into her, it became known that, even before Martin’s death, Mary had physically hurt several other children. One of these incidences, she later admitted to pushing her cousin, a three-year-old boy, off a ledge several feet above the ground. The disturbingly keen wit Mary had developed sparked her to show initiative to find this boy behind some empty sheds near a pub, bleeding from the head. Incidentally, where she “found” him was right where she had left him. After murdering Brian Howe, Mary insistently wanted Brian’s older sister, Pat, to discover his lifeless body in order to shock her. Mary led his sister to the industrial area where many of the kids in the town often played among the construction materials, old cars, and dangerous wreckage. Mary even pointed out some large concrete blocks to Pat, encouraging her that that’s where her brother might be playing. Sure enough, later that night, the Newcastle Police found Brian’s body between the rocks, covered with grass and purple weeds. Brian Howe had been strangled; his thighs appeared to have puncture marks...
