Truths about Slavery Slavery the word itself engenders many feelings and thoughts. From feelings of pity and shame, to thoughts of whips and families being torn apart. Slave traders only wanted to make a buck. However one word, one thought, one feeling could suffice, one word, horror. The horrors of slavery were illustrated in many different ways. It was shown through the laws the black slaves had to follow, the conditions the slaves had to go through to get to the states on the Veloz, and the different rolls the different states played in slavery, when slavery first began, and the going price a landowner would usually have pay to get slaves. Laws made things very difficult for the black slaves, they had to follow all the laws or they would be sentenced to death. In 1734, a black slave named Marie Joseph Angelique, from Canada, objected to slavery and she revolted. She burned down her owner’s home in Montreal in protest. The fire spread more than planned and eventually destroyed 46 buildings. She was sentenced to have her hands cut off and be burned alive but the sentence was reduced on appeal to a simple hanging. The United States Constitution adopted prohibiting the importation of slaves after 1808. Approximately 250,000 slaves were imported illegally until 1860. This declared that each slave was to be at least three fifths of one white or free person. This was called the three fifths clause and demanded the return of fugitive slaves to their masters. There was also a law that stated that black slaves could not be in groups any bigger than five. If they were in a group larger than five they were thought to be planning something against their slave owners or planning to rebel. Since there was the law of not being able to gather in groups larger than five, which made church difficult.…...

...Vulnerable Populations How would you describe a vulnerable population? A vulnerable population is a group of people with certain characteristics that cause it to be at greater risk of having poor health. They include but are not limited to age, culture, disability, education, ethnicity, health insurance status, housing status, income, mental health, and race. According to Mary de Chesnay a vulnerable population can be defined “by virtue of their marginalized sociocultural status, their limited access to economic resources, or their personal characteristics such as age and gender.” Vulnerability is both an individual concept and a group concept. What barriers may prevent these groups from obtaining needed services? In the reading assignment there is an example of Samoan elderly in the United States trying to remember the old remedies for treating ailments. Thus isolating them from current treatment and possibly causing more harm by remembering wrong. What experiences have you had with vulnerable groups in your own life? I volunteer with Remote Area Medical, RAMUSA. I have been to Guyana and traveled to the Rupunini where the villages are very remote. Three days by canoe between some villages. Although the people in these villages appear very happy they do lack in basic health care such as dentistry or emergency medical attention. Although the Rupunini region missed the industrial revolution as we consider world population the same issues occur......

...Bowserguy62 Page 1 Mr.Brown Honors World History 14 April 2013 Roman and Greeks Correlations There are many differences between the Greeks and Romans. There are so many similarities between the two because Romans adopted the Greek religion and everything they did in life. One difference between them is the religion even though the Romans adopted it there are differences. Another difference is architecture like the Greeks the Romans also did gods for their architecture, but there are many differences. The last difference would have to be art while the Greeks did body the Romans did nature and power. Even though they were the same almost there are many different correlations. First one thing that was the same with the Greeks and Romans but had different attributes was architecture. One difference between their architecture was the materials. The early classical period of Greece used bronze. bowserguy62 When they started to advance they used white marble and painted it. The Romans also used white marble to make their architecture however they didn’t paint it. Another example is their styles and inspiration. Greeks often did depictions of their gods in heroic nudes and mainly the male figure was idealized. Even though the Romans did do gods they often did nobles or emperors that were naturalistic. Greeks did......

...This assignment traces the history of Human Resource Management from the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century to present times. The assignment discusses key periods and movements in this field and expands on their contribution to modern Human Resource Management. Human Resource Management can be described as "The comprehensive set of managerial activities and tasks concerned with developing and maintaining a qualified workforce - human resources - in ways that contribute to organisational effectiveness." (DeNisi and Griffin) A HISTORICAL REVIEW. The Industrial Revolution. The momentum for the industrial revolution grew through the 17th century. Agricultural methods were continually improving, creating surpluses that were used for trade. In addition, technical advances were also occurring, for example the Spinning Jenny and the Steam Engine. These advances created a need for improved work methods, productivity and quality that led to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. Adam Smith. In 1776, Adam Smith wrote about the economic advantages of the division of labour in his work The Wealth of Nations. Smith (1776) proposed that work could be made more efficient through specialisation and he suggested that work should be broken down into simple tasks. From this division he saw three advantages: - the development of skills - time saving - the possibility of using specialised tools. Smith's suggestions led to many changes in......

The History of Stem Cell Research in China

...The history of stem cell research on humans in the United States began in the 1960’s, first achieving success in the treatment of patient with severe combined immunodeficiency disorder in 1968. Since the early 1970's, adult stem cells have been successfully used for treatment of immunodeficiency and leukemia. Since the discovery, the ethics of human embryonic stem cells have been debated. As the ongoing controversy over human embryonic stem cells persists, we continue to look for alternative means of acquiring similar task-performing cells. However, many people believe embryonic stem cell research is unethical as they believe life is being taken away in the process. There are a range of opinions about human embryonic stem cell research in the community. The overwhelming issue for most people opposed to embryonic stem cell research is that obtaining inner mass cells inevitably leads to the destruction of the embryo. For those that view a fertilized egg as a human life this is most distressing, others consider the blast cyst nothing more than a ball of cells with the potential to become a human. Debate on this issue is essential. The issue of stem cell research, particularly embryonic stem cell research, became a high-profile political issue in the U.S. during the first year of President George W. Bush's term in office (2001). On August 9, 2001, Bush enacted a ban on federal spending for the purpose of deriving new embryonic stem cells from fertilized embryos. He argued that......

...representation of women over the course of the years. The feminist art movement started in the 1960’s shortly after women gained the right to vote due to the women’s suffrage movement (Feminist art movement). These artists’ purposes did not just have to be representing women in a positive way. In my opinion, this movement represented the power of women and how the suffrage movement gave them that power. One of the most-known pieces of art, during this movement, is The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago. Today, this piece of art is a part of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art in the Brooklyn Museum. It consists of a large banquet table with thirty-one different table settings. Each of these settings are reserved for famous women from history and mythology (Feminist art movement). The table settings are decorated with beautiful gold chalices and plates to represent the importance of these women. The settings are also unique to each individual woman appropriate to their achievements and views. Underneath the table are 999 tiles consisting of the names of other notable women (Feminist art movement). This piece of art was so important during the movement because its purpose was to re-discover the significant roles of these women. The Dinner Party also re-wrote the past that consisted of only successful men and recognizing that women were also just as important (Feminist art movement). Judy Chicago transformed this type of art of tiling and ceramic from women’s “low......

...Columbia, 2013). From a social standpoint, the coffee industry helps to foster positive social change through the creation of healthy economies, communities, and resources for those working in the industry, including health care and education. Culturally speaking, the art of coffee cultivation has a lengthy history in Columbia and is a way of life in much of the rural, mountainous country. Despite the earthquakes and other natural disasters which have impacted the region, the coffee growing community is typically inclined to band to together to rebuild if and when needed, in order to return as quickly as possible to their known way of life. Politically speaking, coffee is a huge economic driver for the country. Social Implications Beyond the natural emphasis on coffee generated profits, Columbia’s coffee export industry has long endeavored to create positive social change and impact. In existence since 1927, the Columbian Coffee Growers Federation (FNC) is charged with representing and defending the coffee grower’s interests and to promote social agendas desired by the farmer collective. Over the years, this has included, training and development, industry research, expansion of community and human development initiatives, with an overall emphasis on ensuring that the industry remains sustainable for those involved (Coffee in Columbia, 2013). As always, FNC’s goal has been to maintain Columbia’s position as a preferred coffee exporter so that prices can remain as......

...bronze types which were already invented in East Asia. The mirror image of each letter, rather than entire words or sentences was carved in relief on a small block. Each letter, which are easily movable were put together to form words; lines of type were formed by the blank space left after each word; and lines of type were brought together to make up a page. Letters could be arranged into any format, because of which, a countless variety of texts could be printed by reusing and resetting the type (Kreis, 2011). Gutenberg got the idea of making printing press from existing technologies: textile, papermaking, and wine presses. However, he introduced an idea of molding and casting of movable metal type, which is a remarkable work in the history. He used the idea of presses used for making wine and cheese, and modified the existing ones to make a press for transferring the image from type to the papers. An operator is needed to use the lever to increase and decrease the pressure of the block against the paper to get the image of what is on the type. It was also necessary to develop suitable inks for printing with the new printing press. By that time, there were only water-based inks used for hand lettering and for block printing, which do not stick on metal type. Thus, a viscous oil based ink that sticks on the metal type was required for the new machine. Gutenberg not only designed a movable type printing press, but he also invented suitable kind of oil-based ink for the......

What Is the History of Stem Call Research Legislation in the Us?

...What is the history of stem call research legislation in the US? How does it compare to the rest of the world? The argument for life is often one that results in two circumstances – either life will go on or life will not. Millions of families are afflicted with diseases and disorders that they would do anything in any lifetime for cures to spare their loved ones. Stem cells through argument of science can cure diseases or help heal individuals who suffer from debilitating conditions such as spinal cord injuries, strokes, heart conditions, and burns to name a few. (Reaves, 2001) The argument for stem cell research proves to be one of both moral hazard and religious conviction. (G.Fischbach, 2004) On the moral side, the idea to use terminated pregnancies in order for gain or just their cells is unfathomable. The religious conviction is that individuals who terminated their pregnancies because of the assumed small value they placed on human life only made these cells available. However, these cells before they form human life are cells that have not generated into existing diseases or degenerative conditions. (NIH, 2009) Stem Cell research can be looked at in many ways, but it personally should be viewed a progression to better lives ruined by diseases and catastrophe, not regression and immoral in the eyes of deities and those superior. In the U.S. states funding for stem cell research was prominent in early part of the 21st century by both members...

...lines of art to include influences on politics, philosophy and social theory as well. (Baroque, n.d). Surrealism visual art centered on creating images based on people’s perception of reality, imagination and dreams. The visual art of this period typically has very curvaceous lines, strange and symbolic figures and dream like surroundings which are attributed to the uninhibited, subconscious mind and the theme is typically violence and annihilation (Voorheis, n.d). Some could argue that this is carried over from the Baroque period since a majority of the themes included death and intense moments which could have been based on violence or dreams/perceptions other than reality. A majority of artists in this period looked towards Freud’s research on the subconscious and his theories of our perception as well as Karl Marx’s political impressions (Voorheis, n.d). Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory, 1931 is a very good example of the techniques and idea’s behind surrealism. It has the strange, flowing symbolic figures that are part of what one would most likely interpret to be a dream state. It is similar to the Rembrandt picture mentioned above as it has the same color scheme, background techniques and lighted foreground. On the surface, each of these periods of art seem to be at extreme opposite ends of the spectrum. One was being focused on recruiting individuals for theology reasons and the other being based on thoughts about psychological theory. Mary Ann Caw, a......
