...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...

...Outline I. Introduction a. Working for my own money during my high school year’s felt great. b. Even though it did take time from my school work, I learned how to manage my time. c. Some people may think that having a job throughout your high school year may distract you and bring your grades down; I think otherwise, because it shows students responsibility, time management, and how they can save up for their future expenses. II. Responsibility a. Getting a job at a young age shows students responsibility because they learn how hard it is to work for their own money rather than someone giving them what they ask for. b. Being punctual is a huge responsible quality that students learn when they begin working. c. A responsibility of having a job helps students prioritize their time. III. Time management a. Time management is another responsible quality that students learn from because they learn how to multi- task and make the most out of their time. b. When having a job students tend to plan out what they have to do with their free time so they can complete any task that has to be done before their deadline. c. Learning how to manage time at an early age is important because the sooner students learn how to manage time the better, because by the time students leave for college they will know how to manage time.

... less competitive. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate and, if possible,suggest possible improvements for the pawnshop business. By studying Swedish laws and legislation and examining solutions that a few Swedish pawnshops are using, a detailed description of work processes were made. These were used to create a new and improved work processes focusing on lowering manual workload, in other words reducing the demand for human input and involvement. This research shows that the processes at a pawnshop  are actually very fitted for Internet. A big portion of the manual work can be made more effective and in some cases even automatic. These mostly concern CRM (Customer Relationship Management) which is an major part of the workload. An interesting detail that appeared was that the pawnshop  business, when deconstructed into processes, was not that unique or complicated as it might seem.

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...

...Outline Structure I. Introduction A. Thesis: The use of drone strike’s is morally and ethically sound based on evidence that shows drone warfare saves American lives, are just as accurate as conventional air strikes, and save tax payers millions of dollars. II. Body Paragraph 1: The use of drone strikes has enabled the United States to neutralize thousands of terrorist targets without direct threat to American lives. B. Supporting evidence: 1. Explanation: You cannot put a dollar amount on a human life, however a U.S. military pilot has millions of dollars of training invested in them and the aircraft to make combat aviation safe. Look at the F-35 program for example it is highly experimental and has costed 1.5 Trillion Dollars. The most advanced drones such as the X-47B have only cost the United States 900 million dollars to develop and deploy due to the removal of the human element from flying the aircraft. 2. So what? If you look at all the aircraft crashes over the past decade they have killed 277 Americans. If you would have had drones in those combat areas versus manned aircraft those are 277 lives that could have been saved along with hundreds of millions of dollars in death benefits, lost training, and the cost of the aircraft.

...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.
