Schizophrenia: Is Recovery a Viable Option?
Schizophrenia is a mental illness of chronic nature that affects people of all walks of life. It is estimated that about 1% of Americans suffer from this disease. Though it ranks high in the consciousness of the public very little is known about the illness. The concept of Schizophrenia has caused much mass confusion due to the influence of pharmaceutical companies, media, government, and mental health professionals who have shaped the perception of the public in a negative way. Schizophrenia is not an imposed death sentence in which patients are shackled and placed behind bars for the protection of society, it is a treatable disorder that can be controlled and kept at bay. The motive of this paper is to explain the phenomenon of Schizophrenia and to tackle the two main views associated with the potential satisfactory recovery of the illness.
Mental illnesses have existed for many years. Long ago, the people who suffered from mental illnesses, deformities, and mental retardation were all classified into one group; abnormal. Early theories speculated that these people had acquired these “abnormalities” due to their bodies being possessed by evil spirits. These evil spirits would ultimately be exorcised by various methods ranging from submitting the patient to various types of music to dangerously drilling a hole in their skull to free them from evil possession. The act of attributing any form of psychopathology to the spiritual world might seem too far-fetched for the average person, but can disgruntled deities and supernatural forces play a pivotal role in the manifestation of mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia? We hold true the fact that no sin shall go unpunished before the presence of God. However is there not a limit to his mercy? In 1911, the…...

...Qiyana Wallace Ms. Garrett Composition II Sec. 35 March 13, 2013 Domestic Terrorism in 9/11 Attacks For my research paper this semester, I would like to narrow my topic to domestic terrorism involvement in the series of attack that occurred on 9/11. There are many academic journals, live interviews, newspaper articles, books, and numerous websites that can help me do my paper. Even though this may be tedious, I am very interested in government affairs and domestic tragedies. I have always felt a close tie to the 9/11 attacks. I was a resident of New York, New York in 2001. During the attack of the Twin Towers in Manhattan, I witnessed the whole thing as I went to work with my mom at the JP Morgan Chase Headquarters. Even though I was only six at the time, I understood the significance of the attack. So from a young age I have been interested on the topic. A few years ago, while watching a 9/11 documentary, several times they had mentioned domestic terrorists’ role in the events that occurred that day. Now that I have the chance to do a thorough research on the topic, I would like to. While researching, I hope to find a stand in the argument. In reading numerous amount of credible sources I think I would find how big domestic terrorism really is in America. I believe I will strengthen my knowledge in the government and its policies. In researching the 9/11 attacks, I think many sources will show how propaganda may have played a factor. Lastly, I think I will see......

The topic I chose is “Should changes be made to the regulations for foods that are served in public schools”. My audience is everyone who has kids attending public schools. Meals served in school not all makes children in the USA overweight or obese but also makes them less involved in physical activities. The thesis statement for this is to improve the quality of meals keeping in mind nutrition standards that has been served in public schools. School meals should include fruits and vegetables foods rich in whole grains in their menu. • Explain the reason for selecting topic two, identify the audience, and provide a preliminary thesis statement. The second topic I chose is “Should children of parents who do not allow them to be vaccinated be allowed to attend public school". My audience is parents of children who are attending public schools. All vaccines are regulated by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for safety and effectiveness. Children’s’ who are not vaccinated are prone to serious illness and can cause health risk to other children’s who are vaccinated. Therefore, children who are not vaccinated should not be allowed to attend the public school. The thesis statement for this is that vaccination is safe and prevents illness, including rubella, diphtheria, and whooping cough and all children’s should be vaccinated. • Explain the reason for...

Examples of high-level EI are self-managed work teams, peer-review dispute resolution panels (with authority to issues binding decisions), a formal joint plant committee that meets on a regular basis to review operations and performance, a companywide “people council,” employee representatives on the board of directors, and some types of ESOPS (employee stock ownership plans). Some form of gain sharing is also frequently used. More so than other companies, high-level EI organizations make employee involvement a key part of their corporate culture and strategy for competitive advantage. Although a large literature exists on employee involvement, case studies of the structure and performance of high-level EI programs at individual (nonunion) companies are very rare. To a significant degree, therefore, EI programs remain a “black box” in the academic literature—a subject of numerous workplace surveys (e.g., Osterman, 2000), a topic theorized about and described in numerous books (e.g., Cloke and Goldsmith, 2002), and an independent variable in numerous regression equations (e.g., Cappelli and Neumark, 2001) but one which we know relatively little about in terms of actual practice and implementation in real-life companies. This omission is particularly surprising given the burgeoning literature...

...Grief & Loss Topic Reflection: Diane Lewis Topic Reflection: Diane Lewis I am always amazed by the strength these women encompass as they discuss the tragic events that led to the death of their loved one. Although I do realize that Diane is in a place in her bereavement where she could recall her story without emotional breaking down, I still feel like a person has to overcome so many obstacles before they get there which takes a substantial amount of strength and resilience. Further, Diane was able to provide great tips not just as a survivor of a great loss but also as a hospice provider, which I felt, was very valuable to a future clinician such as myself. Diane discussed having her clients sit in the guilt and their current emotions, as she says this could be helpful in certain situations. This was so powerful because many times I find myself wanting to move my clients from this guilt space into a more forgiving and peaceful state of mind. I never thought that sitting in this guilt space with them as they navigate towards the next stage in their grief could be helpful because at times it can be very uncomfortable. Further, she discussed how she found peace, which was also a pivotal point in her discussion speech for me. When Diane stated that her current self, had to give her prior self, grace for the things that had happened, something clicked inside of me. Many times, especially in situations such as hers, we tend to really tear ourselves down about...

..., historical, political, cultural or ethnic. An example of research in the humanities is historical research, which is embodied in historical method. Historians use primary sources and other evidence to systematically investigate a topic, and then to write histories in the form of accounts of the past. Artistic research, also seen as 'practice-based research', can take form when creative works are considered both the research and the object of research itself. It is the debatable body of thought which offers an alternative to purely scientific methods in research in its search for knowledge and truth. Etymology[edit] Aristotle, 384 BC – 322 BC, - one of the early figures in the development of the scientific method.[3]The word research is derived from the Middle French "recherche", which means "to go about seeking", the term itself being derived from the Old French term "recerchier" a compound word from "re-" + "cerchier", or "sercher", meaning 'search'.[4] The earliest recorded use of the term was in 1577.[4] Definitions[edit]Research has been defined in a number of different ways. A broad definition of research is given by Martyn Shuttleworth - "In the broadest sense of the word, the definition of research includes any gathering of data, information and facts for the advancement of knowledge."[5] Another definition of research is given by Creswell who states that - "Research is a process of steps used to collect and analyze information to increase our...

...Leroy Thomas HIS 211 Topic A Jimmy Hampton June 2, 2014 Jonathan Edwards evoked vivid, terrifying images of the utter corruption of human nature and the terrors awaiting the unrepentant in hell. Jonathan Edwards’s famous description of the sinner as a loathsome spider suspended by a slender thread over a pit of seething brimstone in his best known sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.”(1741) The First Great Awakening also gained impetus from the wide-ranging American travels of an English preacher, George Whitefield. Although Whitefield had been ordained as a minister in the Church of England, he later allied with other Anglican clergymen who shared his evangelical bent, most notably John and Charles Wesley. Together they led a movement to reform the Church of England (much as the Puritans had attempted earlier to reform that church) which resulted in the founding of the Methodist Church late in the eighteenth century. During his several trips across the Atlantic after 1739, Whitefield preached everywhere in the American colonies, often drawing audiences so large that he was obliged to preach outdoors. What Whitefield preached was nothing more than what other Calvinists had been proclaiming for centuries that sinful men and women were totally dependent for salvation on the mercy of a pure, all-powerful God. But Whitefield and many American preachers who eagerly imitated his style presented that message in novel ways. Gesturing dramatically, sometimes...

...Course Project: Topic Selection Topic: Coca-Cola and Pepsi Cola – Marketing Strategies and the effects these changes have made on consumer consumption Over the years, rival soda companies Coca-Cola and Pepsi Cola, have tried an array of marketing strategies to entice the consumer. Changes surrounding marketing strategies include various techniques that include but are not limited to: product labeling, slogans, pricing, and product innovation and additions to their primary cold drinks – Coca-Cola and Pepsi. These changes were designed to attract more consumers and in turn, convince individuals to buy their product over the other’s. No one can argue that the longstanding histories of both companies are of significance and elicit interest among the general public, with Coca-Cola consistently holding the title of symbolizing the traditional values of a diverse group of people, and in holding with those “traditional” values has ensured that its primary cold drink has the term “Classic” clearly stamped on it; whereas, Pepsi Cola leans toward symbolizing innovation, a younger generation or one of “youth” regardless of age, what is in the “here and now” or “hip, and thus, has slogans that represent such. More recently and in response to a more health-conscious America, both have taken on the task of getting involved in the processing and distribution of more “health conscious” beverages, which include water and fruit drinks, in order to appeal to more consumers via......

...To: From: Date: April 9, 2015 Subject: ENG 114 Research Topic I intend to research the different career opportunities in nursing. Nursing is one of the fastest growing industries, not just in the US, but worldwide. Nurses promote health, prevent disease, and help patients cope with illness. They have a unique scope of practice and can practice independently. The field has a wide range of career opportunities, ranging from entry-level practitioner to doctoral-level researcher. Not only is the industry in need of new and experienced general nurses, the job outlook is diverse and interesting. A person can choose to take their career path as a nurse in hundreds of different directions and create an individual path that works with their own lifestyle. Becoming a registered nurse requires a longer school commitment- usually four years. However, some of the nation’s top nurses are earning more than $100,000 annually, and the average annual income for a RN in North Carolina is $60,030, as of May 2014. Through my research, I intend to show the many rewarding career opportunities that nursing has to offer; with the right education, proper training and determination, nursing can be the perfect career choice.

"Reference list at the end of a journal article provides the information necessary to identify and retrieve each source" (APA, 2010). And this information needs to be accurate, complete and consistent to provide a clear picture to the reader referring you work, so that he/she can refer the list without confusion. If the author fails to do so then his/her credibility will affect badly. "Another most common use of reference citations is to give credit to the original author of work you use" ("Political science department," 2006). This will help the writer to keep his/her work fair and avoid plagiarism.

...Trent Rowser Topic Essay Assignment Obesity in American Adults November 6, 2014 According to the American Diabetes Association, almost two-thirds of American adults are obese or over weight. (Marks, 2004) With the most obvious cause being poor eating habits and lack of physical activity, inactive adults in the US eat on average 500-800 calories more than needed. Given this, these Americans will gain a pound to a pound and a half a week. (Marks, 2004) Obesity is becoming a severe matter in America and it needs to be addressed within reason. Should the government be doing more to challenge the problem or is it up to the individual? First, what is obesity? Obesity is defined on Harvard’s School of Public Health by stating that obesity is being overweight and having too much body fat, most commonly measured by the body mass index (BMI). Being overweight is defined as a body mass index of 25 or higher. Obesity is defined as a BMI of 30 or higher. BMI uses one person’s height and weight to estimate one person’s “fatness”. (Obesity Prevention Source, 2014). What are the effects of obesity? There are many life altering effects that come along with obesity including coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, many types of cancer, as well as strokes. Social and emotional effects of obesity, including discrimination, lower wages, lower quality of life and a likely susceptibility to depression are no less effecting as well.

Music is the passion and it inspires everything from design of the stores to the hiring of an employee. According to www.merriam-webster.com passion is defined as "a strong liking or desire for concept." If hiring people with a passion for music and we know our passions help us thrive and excite us, this alone speaks about the company on a larger scale. They offer a great working environment where they feel they can fit in and feel appreciated for what they contribute to the company. "[They also] value collaboration, open communication, and empowerment, and is perpetuated by a lack of walls and doors in the headquarters." In order to produce consistent success for as many years as they have they have to have an environment that encourages and celebrates innovation and creativity. Their flow and need for communication is also a basis for their success. If they continue to hire passionate people, success will be continuous because being passionate is being invested.

...Topic 1: What career would you like to choose after leaving school Model answer: Today, it is not easy to choose a career. Hundreds of students pass various examinations every year and compete with one another for positions in the various professions which are not so many as there are applicants. I would, however, like to choose teaching as my career. Teaching is an interesting career for several reasons. As a teacher I can learn many things, especially if I teach to an udder-secondary school. If I teach History or English, for example, I have to read many books to make my teaching lessons more interesting to my pupils. Thus, I can acquire more knowledge of the subjects that I teach than what I can learn from the class text books. It is indeed a fact that a teacher learns a lot from the class text books; but that is hardly enough to make the teacher's lessons interesting to pupils. A good teacher must therefore read many other books. Again, as a teacher, I have to speak well so that my pupils will be able to understand my instructions well. In this way I can improve my powers of expression. Even my pronunciation of words will improve to great extent. Further, as a teacher, I shall have enough leisure to read and prepare for various examinations. It is possible today to sit for many important examinations by studying entirely at home. Thus, I can acquire important qualifications. Finally, as a teacher I will be respected as an educated person. People will...
