“Benko and Strohmeyer, 1997 G. Benko, U. Strohmeyer (Eds.), Space and Social Theory: Interpreting Modernity and Postmodernity, Blackwell, Oxford (1997)”. I have chosen this reference from the first class to help my group on our project about women being trafficked from Nigeria. I hope the journal can help us understand how Modernity and Postmodernity can explain the changing society and how we can apply it to our project in terms of understanding how the Nigerian society has responded to different periods of change, also how these women feel in these societies.

“Foucault and Young, 1981, M. Foucault, The order of discourse, R. Young (Ed.), Untying the text: A post-structuralist reader, Routledge, London (1981), pp. 48–79.” I have chosen the reference above as my group project will use Foucault’s discourse. We intend on using discourse to understand the EU and Nigerian governments stance on women trafficking and what they have done to prevent it from happening, by reviewing the different policy documents.

A. SUMMARY: The text focuses on desertification in Ghana and northern Burkina Faso. It’s focus is on the droughts and floodings that happen in the region due to climate change, also how these issues are interlinked. The main argument in the text is concerned with, which of the two, droughts or floods, is the greater issue. The empirical case mainly focuses on desertification related issues. drought has the upper hand in the battle of discourse in the regions, as that seems to be more of a problem that they can solve compared to flooding which is usually associated with a religious connotation i.e. “act of God”. The government and NGO’s also find it problematic and expensive to apply methods to tackle flooding.The concept that is used is discourse, to get a sense of the public opinion on the matter. They also noticed that people were just repeating what others…...

...Annotated Bibliography You Have Been Caught, What Now? Abstract The police have arrived and there is nowhere to run. Even if one did, they know a crime was committed and who has done it. Where does one go from here and what is going to happen? This will give the resources to follow the procedural justice process from beginning to end under normal and under unusual procedures. Regardless of the verdict there will be options along the way that may result in different outcomes throughout the process and some are unexpected. It all depends on the individual and how each case is handled by the police, the prosecutors, and the judges. Perhaps this will shed some light on the procedural process of the criminal justice system and how it really works. Introduction: What happens now? This annotated bibliography shows the procedural process of justice and how it progresses under normal circumstances for some and unusual circumstances for others. In the United States the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty. In a felony criminal case, the accused is “normally” investigated, arrested and booked, placed in a jail cell until the accused can be brought before a magistrate judge for the initial hearing called an arraignment, where the Miranda rights as well as the charges against the accused are read. Bond is discussed and granted or denied at this hearing. There is a Grand Jury hearing to discuss the merits of the case and it is “true billed” or dismissed. If it is......

...Annotated Bibliography: What the Literature Says About Juvenile Sex Offenders The following articles, factsheets, and studies have been compiled to assist attorneys and individuals working on behalf of youth charged with sexual offending. The information contained in these resources aim to help others realize the fundamental differences between adult sex offenders and juvenile sex offenders, which include positive responses of juveniles to treatment, low recidivism rates of juveniles and negative impact of registries on youth development. It is our hope that this information will be used to improve legal outcomes for juvenile sex offenders, and uphold the purpose of the juvenile justice system as a rehabilitative, not punitive, system. PUBLICATIONS BY TOPIC Recidivism Rates/Amenability to Treatment Judith V. Becker, What We Know About the Characteristics and Treatment of Adolescents Who have Committed Sexual Offenses, 3 CHILD MALTREATMENT 317, (1998). The author states that comprehensive data does not exist to support the notion that if adolescents commit one sexual offense, they will go on to develop a pattern of sexual-offending behaviors or develop a psychosocial disorder.

If you are laughing loudly so it is actually that you are laughing. This would be the stupid and pointless. There are many problems in text speak. The other disadvantage is that many people having the different acronym for different words i.e. some people take out the meaning of lol as laugh out a lot or some take out the learning on low. This situation will give the headache to user Audience There are number of people that use the short form of the words. And there are different peoples of different views.

Research in Higher Education 51(2),154-174. doi: 10.1007/s11162-009-9149-4. Associates with Research in Higher Education conducted a study in collaboration with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to test a hypothesis that higher education degree attainment was based on many factors beyond the institution where the program originated, the primary category assessed by the Student Right to Know Act (SRK). Conducting their study over a six-year period, with the help of the NSC database and its 93 million student records, the researchers found that demographics, pervious academic ability, social integration, financial contribution, and gender all strongly affected student persistence. The singular focus of assessing degree attainment based solely on the originating institution was thusly challenged. The data supported a similar finding by the Higher Education Research Institute whose 2005 study indicated race, gender and type of learning institution were all contributing factors for degree attainment (Astin & Oseguera, 2005). Evaluating collective data, it appears multiple factors must be assessed to determine graduation attainment for students in higher learning institutes.......

...Annotated Bibliography Drugs in Sport Calum Thouless Legend 2154980 (Kumar Neeraj, 2011) Spelling - Red Grammar - Green Sentence construction - Yellow Incorrect reference - Blue In this article Kumar Neeraj, Paul Maman and Sandhu J.S perform a survey to increase their knowledge and insight as to why the supporting factors of psychological and social could potentially lead players towards using drug abuse substances. The authors gained primary data by conducting surveys which 303 players participated in, with the questions consisting of performance enhancing attitudes, perfectionism and motivation among other factors. Their research focuses on reviewing the player’s answers to their surveys and their opinions on the different factors which could lead to drug abuse. This article is helpful to me as it indulges into the players own personal opinions on what factors lead to drug abuse in sports and there are multiple surveys in which these opinions are portrayed. The main limitation of the article is that the 303 participants were all in the age group of 18 to 35 which limits the opinions to older/former players or athletes. The authors of this article mention how much of this research is restricted to an individual’s perception rather than a whole team’s perception and that more in depth research needs to be conducted in order for this entire subject to be concluded.

Business Ethics Quarterly, 23(2), 171-205. doi:10.5840/beq201323214 The history of the field of business ethics in the U.S. remains understudied and misunderstood. In this article I begin to remedy this oversight about the past, and I suggest how it can be beneficial in the present. Using both published and unpublished primary sources, I argue that the business ethics field emerged in the early twentieth century, against the backdrop of the establishment of business schools in major universities. I bring to light four important developments: business ethics lectures at the University of California and Yale University, Leon Marshall's curriculum at the College of Commerce of the University of Chicago, and the William A. Vawter Foundation on Business Ethics at Northwestern University. Conflict resolution [electronic resource] Team Publications. (n.d). Amherst, Mass. HRD Press c2002.
