Why does Mary Rowlandson reveal a conflicted sensibility toward native Americans and to what extent is that conflict rooted in puritans values? Mary Rowlandson’s reading about her captivity by Native Americans reveals her brutal experience of slavery put in relation to God and the Bible. She sees her capture as a proof from God that she must endure with faith; only in doing so would she survive and remain a true Christian woman suitable for Puritan society. She has to resist to hunger and violence and cold and frustration just because of God and in order to join salvation through pain and redemption from all of her sins; because God is the only One who can save Christians’ believers or punish them through endless pain. There are a lot of continual references depict the good of God allowing for her capture; “it was easy for me to see how righteous it was with God to cut off the thread of my life and cast me out of His presence forever. Yet the Lord still showed mercy to me”. Rowlandson as puritan woman never could cast in doubt the benevolence of God, so everything happened to her, it was a Divine’s drawing and she had to overcome all the difficulties as well as she could. Even when the Americans were close behind the Natives whom she was with, the Americans not crossing the river to follow them was viewed by Rowlandson as intentional and good by God‘s will: “God did not give them courage or activity to go over after us. We were not ready for so great a mercy as victory and deliverance”. She also wrote about the Sabbath Day: “when the Sabbath came they bade me go to work. I told them it was the Sabbath day, and desired them to let me rest, and told them I would do as much more tomorrow; to which they answered me they would break my face. And here I cannot but take notice of the strange providence of God in preserving the heathen”. She describes Native Americans as wild people with no care of others, as sinner, as non-believers.

Bridging the Two Worlds

...Improbable Plot Casts Unflattering Light on SNC-Lavalin In October of 2012, one of Canada’s largest engineering companies, which was also one of the world’s five largest, hired a new CEO in what looked like the next chapter of an ongoing attempt to put a series of revelations about unethical and potentially illegal dealings around the world behind them. While the company had fired some key people who were connected with the scandals, there were those who publicly mused that the reported unethical and illegal dealings weren’t just the work of a rogue international VP, Riadh Ben Aissa, but that Mr. Ben Aissa’s way of doing business was well-understood within SNC. While Mr. Ban Aissa was detained in jail in Switzerland on suspicion of paying bribes in order to get contracts in North Africa, including Libya, the new CEO, Robert Card, stated that sorting out the payments scandal would be the job of the company’s Board of Directors and his job would be to reassure investors by growing the business. At that time, investor concerns had caused the stock price to fall to $35 from $60 18 months earlier. Over the past three years the company had reported strong financial results. In 2010, SNC-Lavalin’s revenues had been $6.0 billion and profit reached a record $477 million. In 2011, revenues had grown to $7.2 billion but profit declined to $379 million, partly as a result of the pullout from Libya, but still the second highest in company history. In 2012, the revenues were again......

...Legal Memo To: Attorney John Smith, Esquire From: Paralegal Re: Westen Vs. Jane Date: March 18, 2002 This memorandum follows your recent assignment where in you requested that I contact Mr. Mark Vision, who witnessed our client Mary Jane’s accident, and determine where Mr. Vision was in association with the accident, the approximate speed of the other vehicle, the weather conditions and any other information that would be useful in either shifting liability or alleging contributory negligence on the part of plaintiff/driver. Analysis of the Interview I contacted Mr. Mark Vision on March 4, 2002. He is an African American male, very tall with a slim build. He wore business casual clothes and he seemed a little nervous, but he was very respectful and well mannered. He was very forthcoming with all of the questions he was asked in the interview. He seemed very truthful and reliable and answered every question with a matter-of- fact attitude. He remembered the entire accident very vividly. He would make a favorable witness for our case, because he feels that Ms. Jane is not guilty. Mr. Vision advised me that he was on the way to work at his part-time job Saturday March 18, 2002. The reason he did not give a statement at the time of the accident, was because he is the Manager and had to be at the company early to let the other workers in and didn’t want to keep them waiting. But Mr. Vision did give the Police his contact information. It was raining......

Research Proposal

...Name: Lauren Agustin Date: 3/2/14 Instructor: Ms. Tara Andrews Course: SOCL 101 Proposed Topic: Cyberbullying Definition of the Problem: This topic was chosen because nowadays, the Internet has been our daily need. Ever since social networking started, more and more people are getting involved with the use of Internet. Between cellphones, social networking sites and online gaming, today's youth have more outlets for interacting with each other virtually than they do for interacting with each other in person. However, with all of the good social interaction that is done using these technological advances also comes the bad. In addition to the physical and verbal bullying that may take place at school, one unfortunate issue that society is strongly facing is Cyberbullying, also referred to as "electronic bullying." Both can be defined as "An aggressive, intentional act carried out by a group or individual using electronic forms of contact, repeatedly and over time against a victim who cannot easily defend him or herself" (Smith et al., 2008). This topic is relevant because cyberbullying is a growing menace in today's society, especially among teenagers. Cyberbullying can be detrimental to a person’s mental and physical health. The victims of cyberbullying can experience social isolation, fear and feel unsafe. It can lead to emotional and physical harm, feelings of shame and anxiety, low or loss of self-esteem, concentration and learning difficulties.......

The number of the date is pronounced as an ordinal figure, though the endings st, nd, rd, th, are often omitted in writing. The article before the number of the day is pronounced but not written. In the body of the letter, however, the article is written when the name of the month is not mentioned with the day. * The Inside Address - In a business or formal letter you should give the address of the recipient after your own address. Include the recipient's name, company, address and postal code. Add job title if appropriate. Separate the recipient's name and title with a comma. Double check that you have the correct spelling of the recipient 's name. The Inside Address is always on the left margin. If an 8 1/2" x 11" paper is folded in thirds to fit in a standard 9" business envelope, the inside address can appear through the window in the envelope. * The Greeting - Also called the salutation. The type of salutation depends on your relationship with the recipient.

Positive Social Interaction Ms. Smith’s homework policy has some positive ideas within it in order to develop the students and parents social and interaction skills. For example by providing handouts for students to review and give to their parents allows the parents to get involved in the child’s education and provide guidance for them in regards to homework requirements. Also, by writing the assignments on the board it forces students to get into the classroom mindset prior to the beginning of class (Akalin, 2015). Furthermore by allowing students to appeal their homework grade after an assignment is completed lets them have a voice within the classroom and challenge the decisions of others when they feel as though they are correct. I hope to teach in the fifth grade and this type of policy would open a line of communication between myself and the students as well as between myself and the parents. A2. Self-Motivation This policy extensively promotes each student to take personal responsibility for their own completion of all assignments as well as encourages parents to get involved in their child’s educational requirements. Ms. Smith provides the guidance by issuing handouts as well as daily details on the whiteboard for the students to reference. After that, the students must ensure the homework is complete, turned in and picked up on time in order to obtain the proper grades for the......

Employment Law Chart

...Employment Law Description and Requirement of Law Court Case Influential to Establishment of Law Importance of Law Workplace Application Civil Rights Act of 1964 “Prohibits discrimination in all employment decisions on basis of race, religion, ethnicity, sex, and national origin.” (DeCenzo, Robbins, & Verhulst 2013). In Griggs v. Duke Power Co., the Supreme Court ruled that Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits not only intentional job discrimination, but also employer practices that have a discriminatory effect on minorities and women. The Court held that tests and other employment practices that disproportionately screened out African American applicants for jobs at the Duke Power Company were prohibited when the tests were not shown to be job-related This law is important because it gives every person applying for a job equal rights. An employee cannot be discriminated against for being Catholic. An employee has the right to choose their religion and to not be discriminated against. Equal Employment Opportunity Act The Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972 is the act which gives the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) authority to sue in federal courts when it finds reasonable cause to believe that there has been employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. In the case of public employment, the EEOC refers the matter to the United States Attorney General to bring the lawsuit. McDonnell......

Everywhere you look, you see a plethora of cultures that range from Hispanic and African to Asian and American Indian. The varied traditions and beliefs of a multicultural country impact how nurses implement patient-centered care. The best way to provide optimal care in nursing is to become better informed in how different cultures view health maintenance, protection, and restoration. The Heritage Assessment is a wonderful tool to obtain information that can be used to evaluate the needs of the whole person. The Heritage Assessment is a list of twenty nine questions that identify a person’s county of origin, native language, religious beliefs, education, and birth place of parents and grandparents information. These questions reveal cultural information that can help the nurse assess the needs of the whole patient, not just the diagnosis, and to plan their care accordingly. The heritage assessment can also build communication by fostering interest and openings for other important health related questions. The information provided can break down stereotyping by informing the nurse of where individuals derive their feelings about illness, and heath care. (Smith) This nurse’s cultural heritage is Hispanic-Mexican American; their family is Protestant......
