Two Great Activists “There has to be some form of punishment.” That is what Donald Trump said in a recent interview when he was asked if he would punish women from having an abortion in case he becomes president and makes abortions illegal.
Abortion should be kept legal because women should have the right to choose, women may face more economic difficulties, and legal abortions are safer than illegal ones. If a woman wants to abort, she should have the right to do an abortion because it is her body and her decision. At the end of the day, laws should not be an impediment to a woman from having an abortion. Many pregnant women did not wanted to become pregnant. In consequence, the majority of these women do not want to have a child and there is no point into bringing an unwanted child to the world. Woman who are denied of an abortion are more likely to suffer an economic disadvantage. Many pregnant women, especially teenage girls, who are not supported by their partner, are more likely to live at a poverty level and to receive governmental aid. Woman who are negated an abortion tend to do an illegal abortion instead risking her own health. Nowadays advancements in technology offer a secure and affective way to do an abortion without risking the health of a woman. On countries where abortion is illegal, woman try to get an abortion resulting in catastrophic health problems even losing their…...

Two Great Comedians

...Two Great Comedians Tyler Perry and Steve Harvey are two iconic comedians that have soared to great heights in the world of comedy. They are comedians, singers, authors and have appeared on stage and television. These two men have one thing in common; they love to make people laugh. Both of these comedians have struggled in order to find their true calling in life. Steve Harvey lost all his money because of past mistakes and slept in his car for two years. The same can be said for Tyler Perry who took all his money and made a bad investment which left him penniless and he also had to sleep in his car. These two men had the courage to bounce back after living homeless, sleeping in their cars, and have now become world- renowned icons in the comedy world. Tyler Perry is a better comedian than Steve Harvey because Tyler Perry does not use profanity and his style of comedy is acceptable to all ages. During a performance on television Steve Harvey was preparing to come onto the stage. The room was dark, full of cigarette smoke, people drinking, looking around at each other. Suddenly a light shined on the stage. Displayed was a big flashy sign with his signature in bright colors. The master of ceremonies ran out on the stage and yells “Ladies and gentlemen, put ya hands together and show ya love for Steveeeeee Harvaaaaaaay”. Harvey walked out on the stage and immediately began to start talking about some” crazy fool” who cut him off on the freeway, calling him names, and......

...497–513 Synergies between Australian indigenous tourism and ecotourism: possibilities and problems for future development Jeremy Buultjensa , Deborah Galeb and Nadine Elizabeth Whitea∗ a Downloaded by [UNIVERSITY OF ADELAIDE LIBRARY] at 20:20 10 May 2012 Regional Futures Institute, School of Commerce and Management, Southern Cross University, Lismore, Australia; b School of Tourism and Hospitality Management, Southern Cross University, Lismore, Australia (Received 10 December 2008; final version received 19 January 2010) This paper examines and finds synergies between indigenous tourism and ecotourism in Australia. Both were recognised in the 2003 Tourism White Paper as drawcards for international tourists; Tourism Australia markets both as two of the country’s seven key visitor experiences. Despite this, and the proven need to assist indigenous peoples’ socio-economic position, the indigenous tourism sector remains relatively immature. The paper, using a mixed-methods approach, including in-depth discussions with 26 indigenous tourism businesses, examines this problem and suggests ways forward. The results indicate that between 50% and 70% of indigenous tourism businesses are located in remote or very remote areas and utilise the environment to a substantial degree. Communities, couples and families dominate ownership patterns. Only 25% operate on a full-time basis. However, indigenous operators do not necessarily see themselves as being “ecotourism” businesses, despite......

Two Great Renaissance Artists

...Two Great Renaissance Artists The Renaissance period is known as a period of the rebirth of Greek ideas. The works of this time were more individualized and the artists had more artistic freedom then were allowed in the Medieval or middle Ages. Two of the greatest individuals of the Renaissance time period were Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. Not only was Da Vinci a great artist, he was also the best in many fields other than art. “Leonardo is often viewed as the archetype of the "Renaissance Man" because of his expertise and interest in many different areas, including art, science, music, mechanics, the arts of war, politics, philosophy, and nearly every other subject that mattered” (Wikibooks, 2010). Michelangelo Buonarroti is arguably one of the most inspired creators in the history of art and the most potent force in the Italian High Renaissance. As a sculptor, architect, painter, and poet, he exerted a tremendous influence on his contemporaries and on subsequent Western art in general. Both artists had multiple pieces of great art in this time period. Michelangelo had plenty of influences. When he was young he would sketch things on his way to art class. He soon had lessons from a local artist who was also his art teacher named Francesco Granacci. Granacci worked with him for the next couple of years (Harris). He was amazed at how fast Michelangelo learned and how much he excelled compared to Granacci's other students (Ryan). Around age thirteen......

...Great Barrier Reef loses half its coral in less than 30 years The Great Barrier Reef has lost half of its coral cover in the last 27 years, according to a new study released today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Based on over 2,000 surveys from 1985 to this year the study links the alarming loss to three impacts: tropical cyclone damage, outbreaks crown-of-thorns starfish that devour corals, and coral bleaching. "We can't stop the storms, and ocean warming (the primary cause of coral bleaching) is one of the critical impacts of the global climate change. However, we can act to reduce the impact of crown of thorns," says John Gunn, the head of the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), which conducted the research. Crown-of-thorns starfish (Acanthaster planci), the world's second largest seastar and a renowned predator of coral, have seen several outbreaks in the Great Barrier Reef during the past few decades. Outbreaks of the coral-chomping invertebrates are believed to have increased from one every 50-80 years to one every 15 years, which scientists have linked in part to fertilizer and chemical runoff from the mainland. In total, the researchers found that 42 percent of coral loss could be linked the crown-of-thorns outbreaks, 48 percent to tropical cyclones, and 10 percent to coral bleaching. The annual loss of coral cover has sped up as well, averaging 1.45 percent annually since 2006. This pummeling, occurring too quickly......

Two Women, Great Differences

...------ February 24, 2014 ENG 102/Prof. ------ Two Women, Great Differences The story “Girl” written by Jamaica Kincaid and “The Story of an Hour” written by Kate Chopin are both about women. The tone of both stories are cold and there is a minimal amount of other characters in them but most of the comparisons end there. “Girl” was written by Elaine Potter Richardson who was raised in poverty by her mother and stepfather in Antigua. She was sent to the United States to take care of herself at 17 and worked as an au pair and receptionist. She took the name of Jamaica Kincaid from a character in a George Bernard Shaw Play which was an act in part out of resentment toward her mother who did not agree with her career choice. She states that her stories written are part in truth and we can see some proof of that in the story. The story “Girl” is about a girl whose Mother is giving her daughter advice. The point of view is from that of the daughter. The tone is very pessimistic and semicolons are used but no periods. Her Mother is very specific and condescending in her tone. She repeatedly refers to her daughter as a slut. An example of this is her telling her daughter not to “walk like a slut” on Sunday even though she is “bent on becoming” one. Her Mother tells her how to hem a skirt so he doesn’t “look like the slut”. And a third time, when telling her how to behave around men she doesn’t really know. The daughter only interrupts twice during the whole spiel. When...

Great Expectations: the Two Endings

...Great Expectations: The two endings. There is more to the ending of Great Expectations than one would gather from simply reading the book. The published ending of Great Expectations was in fact Dickens’ second attempt at an ending for the novel. The original ending of Great Expectations takes place two years after Pip’s conversation with Biddy in which he confides that he has “forgotten nothing” about Estella. Before the dialogue between the pair begins, Pip tells us Drummle treated Estella with “great cruelty” throughout their marriage however they are now separated due to Drummle’s death. We also discover that she has remarried to a country doctor in Shropshire. The “interview” takes place whilst Pip is “walking along Piccadilly with little Pip”; they shake hands and converse briefly of their current situations. Estella thinks Pip has moved on after assuming Joe and Biddy’s child is Pip’s and tells that she is “greatly changed”. Pip sees that for Estella “suffering had been stronger than Miss Havisham’s teaching and had given her a heart to understand” what his heart used to be. Dickens changed this originally conceived ending after a fellow novelist and friend argued the ending was too disappointing for the reader who would want a ‘happy ending’. To satisfy the reader Dickens changed the ending and it was now situated at Satis house when “the moon was coming, and the evening was not dark”. There Pip sees the silhouette of a woman and later discovers that it is......

Compare and Contrast Two of the Great Educators

...Compare and Contrast Two of the Great Educators Roger Greene Northcentral University Compare and Contrast Two Great Educators In todays society we try to instill in others the importance of a good education and how it builds self-esteem. I am a firm believer that one’s development is often dictated by a sound education, combined with an environment that encourages and support educational growth. In this paper I will briefly compare two of the great educators, Paulo Freire and William Brickman. Discuss their contribution, similarities and differences and factors impacting their success. Paulo Freire Contribution Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Freire’s view of education came about when his family had to move from their current status of living to a status of poverty due to the market crash of 1929. Freire learned through education all things are possible; how you live, where you live and your societal status. By having the opportunity to grow up in poverty Freire got to see how those who were educated suppressed those who were not. He saw how education was used as a mechanism to control the weak minded, where as the oppressed lives with one understanding and one reality. In order for change to take place in the oppressed they must discover alternatives. It is only then they can begin to transform their own world and experiences (Flanagan, 2005). William Brickman Contribution William Brickman found his calling in education as he traveled the United States and......

...Some employers may have a few ideas on how to improve the company, but unless they’re brought in to share their thoughts, they may never have a chance to express themselves. It also let employers know you value their opinions. By helping the employers understand that the business needs and values them is important for building a strong working relationship. Employees should be involved in most decision making but some are better left to management. I knew of a guy that worked at a previous job. He was at that job for over 5 years. He knew how to work and run every department. An assistant position came available and everyone thought he would be perfect for the position, because he had more knowledge of the different areas and he was great at his job. He always wore a smile and greeting everyone. The customers loved him. He interviewed for the position, but he didn’t get it, because of sex-based discrimination. He was gay, but I don’t agree that he should have not got the position due to his sexual belief. A girl out of another department got the job and had to do a full 2 weeks of training and still was slow catching on. She eventually got fired and he quit. If I was manager, I would have given him the position....

Comparison of the Two Great Awakenings

...The Great Awakening and the Second Awakening were less of a rebellion and more of a mind shift for Christians. These two events caused people to rely on their faith. In previous centuries people relied on their religion. The two Awakenings were similar in their goals but very different in the way they came about and the individual tasks that were accomplished. The first movement, the Great Awakening, was focused on people. In the past preachers would read a sermon to the crowd of believers which often took hours. In the Great Awakening a preacher named George Whitefield got down from his pulpit and into the crowd. He preached from court steps, street corners and tree stumps. He brought the message down to the people. It was often said that he could be heard from a great distance due to his incredible blast of a voice. Benjamin Franklin even tested this. (Franklin) He talked to the people rather than at the people, an act unheard of and not always well accepted. George was determined to help bring God down out of the rafters and into the hands of the believers. Another change in the way we worship came about with Jonathan Edwards. He changed the way the Lord’s Supper was taken. Rather than waiting an entire year to partake of the Lord’s blood and body, he offered it on a regulatory basis. He also offered it to non church members. This was a great coop in a time when religion and regimen were synonymous. The Second Awakening was most......

...When the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect in 1994, the treaty specified that by 2000 trucks from each nation would be allowed to cross each other's borders and deliver goods to their ultimate destination. The argument was that such a policy would lead to great efficiencies. Before NAFTA, Mexican trucks stopped at the border, and goods had to be unloaded and reloaded onto American trucks, a process that took time and cost money. It was also argued that greater competition from Mexican trucking firms would lower the price of road transportation within NAFTA. Given that two-thirds of cross-border trade within NAFTA goes by road, supporters argued that the savings could be significant. This provision was vigorously opposed by the Teamsters union in the United States, which represents truck drivers. The union argued that Mexican truck drivers had poor safety records, and that Mexican trucks did not adhere to the strict safety and environmental standards of the United States. To quote James Hoffa, the president of the Teamsters: Mexican trucks are older, dirtier, and more dangerous than American trucks. American truck drivers are taken off the road if they commit a serious traffic violation in their personal vehicle. That's not so in Mexico. Limits on the hours a driver can spend behind the wheel are ignored in Mexico. Under pressure from the Teamsters, the United States dragged its feet on implementation of the......

Two Theories About the Constrction of the Great Pyramids

...Two Theories behind the Construction of the Pyramids of Giza Introduction The Egyptian empire which has been identified to have developed over the last three millennia BCE (Sayre, 2012), is known for several contributions to modern society to include: a formal irrigation system, a form of writing called hieroglyphics, their art and their architecture. The most significant of architectural structures are the Great Pyramids. The basis of the pyramid was the mastaba or mortuary compartment that was customary during the First Dynasty (Ruiz, 2001). Although the Egyptians were architectural geniuses when it came to the Great Pyramids, they did not put the same time and durability into the very homes they lived in. Although pyramids and temples from ancient Egypt still impress us thousands of years after they were built, all that remains of the homes where people were born, grew to adulthood and died are occasional low mounds of mud outlines. Temples and tombs endure because Egyptians made a sharp distinction between their religious architecture, constructed of permanent stone for eternity, and all other buildings, even palaces and fortresses, which were built of less durable adobe (Brier & Hobbs, 2008). Because a significant portion of the pyramids continue to stand today, the mystery behind how the Great Pyramids were actually constructed continues to be a significant topic of discussion for modern society aerologists, architects, engineers, and historians. Since......

The Two Great Speaches

...The Two Great Speeches Throughout history many speeches have astonished humanity, two specifically, are very much alike and served the same purpose yet they occurred at different times in history. Pericles’ Funeral Oration, which happened between 431-404 BC, and Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, which took place on November 19 1863, share several common aspects. Both speeches pertained to honor the fallen heroes of the Peloponnesian War and the United States Civil War. Due to the fact that both Pericles and Lincoln were politicians we can infer that they were experts in getting their point across to the masses. Pericles’ Funeral Oration happened thousands of years before Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, however the fact that both of them were meant to redefine war and its purpose made them very comparable. There is a reason these two speeches can be compared; by looking at the bigger picture, analyzing the similarities, and meaning of the dialogue it can be said the speeches were intended to portray both wars as a necessary method to reestablish the pillars for which each nation and/or city was founded upon. Both of these speeches are without a doubt, an important piece of history, as they tell the story of the aftermath of the battles that had taken place and the ones that were yet to come. The Funeral Oration by Pericles displays the difference those who had died in the battles made and how much Athenians valued them, enough to publicly honor them. According......

... Successes of the First Great Awakening In the 1730’s and 1740’s the British American Colonies embarked on a revitalized religious piety called “The Great Awakening” which had a plethora of positive effects that strengthened the colonies at that present time and has remnants today in modern day America. Two extremely brilliant pastors by the names of Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield operating as separate entities led a mission through British America exhorting colonists to repent of sins! “As The Great Awakening” begins to ignite, these two pastors will have made footprints in America that will shape the way of Christianity forever. Jonathan Edwards was known for having one of the deepest theological minds ever. He proclaimed a burning desire for righteousness, and depending whole heartedly on God’s saving and loving grace. Preaching boldly with much conviction! On the contrary George Whitefield was effective! But, had a different preaching style. Four years into “The Great Awakening” English parson George Whitefield appeared on the scene, he was a great orator, spiritually led his voice boomed and was able to reach the masses. How did these two pastors Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield effect America? What evolved from “The Great Awakening?” We are going to dissect “The Great Awakening” by following events that led to spiritual success for British America after returning to a sound walk with God. Additionally, we will......

Analysis of Two Great Coaches

...Analysis of Two Great Coaches Donna M. Rothenberger Grand Canyon University LDR 600 September 2, 2015 Mike Krzyzewski (aka Coach K) and Coach Bobby Knight (aka The General) are the most colorful basketball coaches in American collegiate history. Their similarities are striking. They have shared the same arenas as coach and player at West Point; they are coaching contemporaries; they are competitors, highest winning coaches, and lifelong friends. And, Coach K and Coach Knight have both achieved brilliant success during their college coaching careers. But that’s where their similarities end. Their leadership styles have been the subject of debate around coffee tables, pizza places and beer joints for years. For the curious, there are models of management, though, that can give us yet some more insight into their methods and madness. Robert Katz identified a leadership leaning that made simple the behaviors of leaders based on people and results: Task and Human Skills Approach. The Task Approach favors task and production foremost, while the Human Approach favors relationship and people foremost (Northouse, 2012). Embracing this model, we can understand these coaches a little more by looking at the Katz approach. Coach K was all about the people-relationship skills as priority for......
