Provisions Table

Use the table below to organize information about the USA PATRIOT ACT. From the Electronic Reserve Reading article Update: USA Patriot Act, identify and classify characteristics of PATRIOT ACT provisions. Describe how each provision either poses potential risks to civil liberties, aids the War on Terror, or possibly both. While completing the table, consider what each provision means to you on a personal level. For example, Section 218 makes it easier for federal agents to open a criminal case on you or other citizens, should there be significant purpose to do so; yet, the same provision makes it easier for federal agents to gather information on a terrorist, and possibly prevent that terrorist from committing future crimes.

|Provision |Risks to Civil Liberties |Aids the War on Terror |

Secondhand smoke has been linked to heart and respiratory disease; lung, breast, cervical, and nasal sinus cancers; strokes and miscarriages. In children, dangers include sudden infant death syndrome, fetal growth impairment, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma and middle-ear disease. People who smoke subject themselves to deadly diseases, as well as long- and short-term health problems. Non-smokers should not have to live with the consequences of smokers' actions. Many surveys, studies and scientific research has proved that smoking is injurious to health. Smoke is unhealthy and suffocating. It pollutes the environment. There are two types of smokers - active and passive. The person who smokes is active and other who are near to him and inhale the smoke are passive smokers. Both are equally affected by the ill effects of smoking. Smokers and non-smokers meet at many places like offices, buses, hotels, etc. So, considering the bad effects of smoking on individual's health, environment as well as individual rights, it should be banned in public places. A person who wants to smoke can do so by keeping himself in isolation. The smoking of cigarette is glamorized through advertisements. More and more young boys and girls are attracted by this. Even the 'statutory warning' on the cigarette packets does not stop them. The young generation think......

People” take place during that time. For our purposes, salient events are events that we consciously notice. They might be novel in some way, either by being different and new, or by being exciting. You can see this is true if you consider that a year backpacking abroad will seem in retrospect to have been a whole lifetime. So many new and exciting things happened during that year, that when your brain recreates the experience it feels subjectively “longer” than if you sat in a cubical filling out TPS reports the whole time. When you’re a kid, time crawls by because every day you’re experiencing new and exciting things. As you age, you settle into routine and soon nothing much is new or exciting, and time is flying by. When we are bored, we become aware of each passing second. Each agonizing moment becomes a salient event because we’re aware of them as they pass, and so time passes in a trickle. Later that day we sink four hours into World of Warcraft without a second thought. 3. To be a new and better person means to have new and better experiences—events that shape who you are, and color your perception. Each new experience can potentially be the event horizon of being “young and dumb.” On one side of the horizon you see your young self, and on this side you find your new, better self. The key ingredient to growth and the perception of a full and meaningful life is those salient events. Don’t sink into routine; seek out new ideas and new people, and new......

...this thesis will be the matter of the choice of target group. The first analysis will be done according to the Minerva model on the basis of a questionnaire conducted. The Minerva model divides people into 5 different lifestyle segments based on their values and each of these segments is designated a colour; blue, green, rose, violet and the grey segment in the middle. Furthermore the model consists of a horizontal axis and a vertical axis. By using the Minerva model it will be established that it is difficult to place the target customers of respectively the landline telephone and the mobile telephone due to the fact that the model does not provide an opportunity to blend two or more of the coloured segments. The Mosaic model will be used to provide another possibility to determine the target customers of respectively the landline telephone and the mobile telephone. It is based on geodemographic values i.e. it combines the study of people with where they live. In this thesis the results of the model will, as the Minerva model, be based on the questionnaire conducted. On the basis of the descriptions and the responses it will be concluded that the mobile telephone tends to be preferred by people living in the centre of Aarhus whereas the landline telephone tends to be preferred by people living in a suburb of Aarhus. With the theoretical explanation and the analysis’ a framework of exemplifying how market segmentation can determine the right target customers, in this case......

The Isthmos game were staged every two years at the Isthmos of Corinth. The Pythian games took place every four years near Delphi. The most famous games held at Olympia, South- West of Greece, which took place every four years. 2 ACROPOLIS The Athenian Acropolis History Acropolis history is difficult to pin down in its early years, as it disappears into myth and legend. Originally an acropolis was an easily defensible position and was usually the home of the local king or ruler. Although not as important as the centres of Mycenae and Tiryns during the 2C BC, Athens became more important as they lost their influence. The word 'acropolis' means 'high city' or 'upper part of the city'. Many ancient Greek cities had them, so there is an acropolis at Lindos in Rhodes, for example. But the term has become almost exclusively associated with Athens, so when people say 'the acropolis', you can be sure they are referring to the one at Athens. 3 PLATO Plato was a classical Greek philosopher born 428-7 B.C.E and died in 348-7 B.C.E at the age of 80-81.

...People People as part of the marketing mix People are the most important element of any service or experience. Services tend to be produced and consumed at the same moment, and aspects of the customer experience are altered to meet the individual needs of the person consuming it. Most of us can think of a situation where the personal service offered by individuals has made or tainted a tour, vacation or restaurant meal. Remember, people buy from people that they like, so the attitude, skills and appearance of all staff need to be first class. People have an important role in service delivery, they are relied upon to deliver and maintain transactional marketing and people play an important part in the customer relationship. People deliver services in all sorts of settings. It is an important element of the services marketing mix. If you go to an organized event such as the Olympics then everything about the experience is underpinned by people. Behind-the-scenes there are project managers, chefs and accountants. The people deliver the service and this is the same for restaurants, hairdressers and auto mechanics. People are the transactional interface between the company and its customers so people deliver the service and they collect money i.e. get paid on behalf the company for the service.

...developed industries assisted the growth of the economy. Construction was a part of the economic growth, as people began to merge to other cities residential construction doubled. “Construction stimulated other business too: steel, concrete, lumber, home mortgages and insurance” (Davidson, Gienapp, & Heyrman, Ch24 p.684, 2006). In the 1920’s there was no industry that progressed like the auto manufacturing. In the late nineteen century the economy had progressively grew, but most of its growth went to non consumers goods. The industrial networks have grasped enough of the country to create a mass of markets. However if the consumer would purchase more good the production would increase, but at the same time it is bringing down the costs (Davidson, Gienapp, & Heyrman, 2006). When production is low this would call for lower prices in which it also will increase employment. The emergence mass society influenced change because “mass marketing and mass distribution led not simply to a higher standard of living but to a life that’s less diverse” (Davidson, Gienapp, & Heyrman, Ch24 p.689, 2006). The morals that were set by the surrounding communities and churches provided modern fashions and attitudes that were spread by the new mass media of movies, radios, and magazines (Davidson, Gienapp, & Heyrman, 2006).

People who had been primarily songwriters, notably Carole King, Townes Van Zandtand Neil Diamond, also began releasing work as performers. In contrast to the storytelling approach of most prior country and folk music, these performers typically wrote songs from a highly personal (often first-person), introspective point of view. The adjectives "confessional" and "sensitive" were often used (sometimes derisively) to describe this early singer-songwriter style. While the members of rock bands of the era were not technically singer-songwriters as solo acts, many were singer-songwriters who created songs with other band members including Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Jerry Garcia and Bob......
