...Thomas Dang Professor Decker English 1B 21 November 2012 Outline 1. Introduction: One of the biggest concerns in America in the past and in today’s time is what the required and appropriate drinking age should be in the United States. There has been statistics showing that the drinking has been lowered before and in that time period there were more accidents occurring more than when the drinking age were set at twenty-one. 1. Background: The twenty first amendment in 1933, it gave individual states to legalize, regulate, or prohibit alcohol which was known as repeal of prohibition. The repeal of prohibition act was what changed the drinking age to twenty-one to eighteen, not all fifty states lowered it but about over thirty states did. The act Mothers Against Drunk Driving was what set the drinking age back to twenty-one. 2. Argument: We should not lower the drinking age to eighteen because of the fact that the earlier the teenager get to drink the earlier they are risking their development of their brain and the health of their body. Not only that it affects their health but it also affects their academic in school and their safety while driving under the influence. a) Reason 1: Keep the drinking age at twenty-one because it keeps the highways and streets safer. b) Reason 2: A better chance in better academic progression, due to the fact that the brain still develops until the age of twenty-five. c) Young adults are more mature at the...

...Eating Disorder Outline I. What is an eating disorder A. Disturbance in Eating B. Has Psychiatric Classification in Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV-R) C. Coping Mechanism II. Coping III. Eating Continuum IV. Normal Eating Normal Eating is being able to eat when you are hungry and continue eating until you are satisfied. Normal eating is being able to use some moderate constraint on your food selection to get the right food, but not being so restrictive that you miss out on pleasurable foods. Normal eating is giving yourself permission to eat sometimes because you are happy, sad or bored, or just because it feels good Normal eating is three meals a day, or it can be choosing to munch along. It is leaving some cookies on the plate because you know you can have some again tomorrow, or it is eating more now because they taste so wonderful when they are fresh. Normal eating is overeating at times: feeling stuffed and uncomfortable. It is also under-eating at times and wishing you had more. Normal eating is trusting your body to make up for your mistakes in eating. Normal eating takes up some of your time and attention, but keeps its place as only one important area of your life. In short, normal eating is flexible. It varies in response to your emotions, your schedule, your hunger and your proximity to food. V. Chronic Dieters 1. 2. 3. VI. Types of eating disorders a.......

Even in today’s time reviews of formal international and national documents on religion suggests that governments and the international community recognize the position of religious freedoms in the constellation of human rights. The protection of fundamental human rights was a foundation stone in the establishment of the United States around 200 years ago. Since then, the central goal of U.S. foreign policy has been the promotion of respect for human rights, as embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The U.S understands that the existence of human rights helps secure the peace, deter aggression, promote the rule of law, combat crime and corruption, strengthen democracies, and prevent humanitarian......

...MGMT 341 - Ethics in Business Professor Gini Fall 2014 Final Study Guide Prompt #2 • What is leadership? • How would you define a leader? • In your estimation, what are the five key jobs, tasks, and/or responsibilities of being a leader. • Besides B. Clinton, A. Lincoln, G. Washington, or your parents give me a personal example of a good leader. • Why is the Enron case a bad example of leadership? • Why is the Malden Mills case a good example of leadership? Outline What Is Leadership? • Leadership is about inspiring others with confidence to accomplish the vision of the leader, organization, and community. • There is no correct definition of leadership. Leadership is a concept that we are fascinated by yet it is one of the least understood phenomenas of humanity. • Leadership is a trait that can be learned and enhanced with experience, however it is not something that can be just given, otherwise it will lead to failure. Leadership is a talent, like playing the piano, it takes time to cultivate leadership to become effective at inspiring others, much like it takes time for a pianist to be able to stroke the keys perfectly to Mozart’s Requiem. • “Putting a man in charge and calling him a leader is like giving a man a Bible and calling him a preacher. Bestowing the title, doesn't bestow the talent.” - Price Pritchett How would you define a leader? • Leaders have an ability to influence their followers with confidence through effective communication. • Leaders are teachers that...

...Outlining Method The outlining method is perhaps the most common form of note taking used by college students; an outline naturally organizes the information in a highly structured, logical manner, forming a skeleton of the textbook chapter or lecture subject that serves as an excellent study guide when preparing for tests. This method of note taking is extremely useful in most instances; however, in classes, such as math or chemistry, where a lot of formulas, graphs, or structures must be drawn, the outline method should be replaced with a better note-taking system. How to Use Write points in an organized manner based on space indentation. Place major points farthest to the left. Indent each more specific point farther to the right (level of importance is indicated by distance away from left margin). Advantages The outlining method emphasizes content as well as relationships between the material. Also, it reduces the time needed for editing and allows for easy reviewing. Disadvantages This method requires more thought for accurate, understandable organization and, therefore, cannot be used during lectures that move too quickly. Example How to study from an outline:    I. Read through one line at a time          A. Explain the information and connect the idea to others presented    II. Check the accuracy of the information    III. Add clue words          A. Jot down keywords or details that you didn’t originally include in the outline          B. Use...

...Paper 1 Outline and Notes The Selling of Joseph Thesis: During the age of Samuel Sewall, a time where both slavery and religion were prevalent aspects of an everyday society, Sewall outlined within a three page pamphlet titled “The Selling of Joseph”, the great differences between Sewall’s views, opinions, and even contradictions of natural rights as well as slavery, where he uses scripture and his own developed worldview pertaining to racism, and the general population’s. I. Sewall’s devotion to his religion and to the Bible is what backs his opinions and his view of slavery a. public positions address specific concerns about the rights of Native Americans and of African-Americans brought as slaves to the colonies b. “The Selling of Joseph” addresses his position on some of the inhumanities of his “fellow sons of Adam” c. His somewhat literal interpretation of the Bible is what leads him to his opinion about slaves d. What sets Sewall apart from other anti-slave sympathizers is his public opinion II. His views of natural rights can be contrasted to those of the early explorer Christopher Columbus e. Both exaggerated as most did during this time f. Sewall may have exaggerated in asserting that slave resistance had caused “many” to begin thinking about the value of maintaining the institution III. Sewall was a living contradiction in his beliefs g. He wrote the first anti-slavery piece of literary but was he...

...I. Learning how to study A. Effective study skills take time to develop. Luckily, there are many strategies you can try to see which work best for you and which do not. B. Of the many strategies I have learned and tried, taking breaks in reading and study time has been unsuccessful for me. Taking breaks gives me the chance to become distracted by something else.

Studying strategies are important techniques you need to utilize in order to earn good grades while mastering the material in your courses. II. Study techniques that work A. Reading and highlighting 1. I read the entire chapter in my textbook then go back to the beginning and highlight the main points in each section. 2. This works by allowing me to focus on understanding the material first then absorbing it while identifying the main points. B. Outlining 1. After identifying the important points in the textbook, I take those points and create an outline. 2. Doing this helps with studying and test taking.
