Criminal Profile Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Introduction
Besides many concerns that trouble the Government of United States of America, the exponentially increasing crime rate remains the most alarming. The Government has taken several necessary steps to control the law and order situation in many violent states and cities. However, the Government has ignored the fact that some of these cities face issues that are a little more unique in nature. One of such cities is Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The violent events and incidents are not new for the city. Such events are an “everyday” routine for the citizens of Baton Rouge. Moreover, situation in the city is only worsening with the passage of time.

Thesis Statement Baton Rouge, Louisiana is declared as one of the most violent and aggressive cities in the United States of America. Unemployment, deprivation of labor rights and interracial conflicts are the contributing factors towards the increasing crime rate. The law and order situation will only get worse if the Government does not take useful steps to control the crime rate.

Louisiana Purchase

...Louisiana Purchase I/Background The city of New Orleans controlled the Mississippi River through its location; other locations for ports had been tried and had not succeeded. New Orleans was already important for shipping agricultural goods to and from the parts of the United States west of the Appalachian Mountains. Pinckney's Treaty, signed with Spain on October 27, 1795, gave American merchants "right of deposit" in New Orleans, meaning they could use the port to store goods for export. Americans used this right to transport products such as flour, tobacco, pork, bacon, lard, feathers, cider, butter, and cheese. The treaty also recognized American rights to navigate the entire Mississippi River, which had become vital to the growing trade of their western territories. In 1798 Spain revoked this treaty, which greatly upset Americans. In 1801, Spanish Governor Don Juan Manuel de Salcedo took over for Governor Marquess of Casa Calvo, and the right to deposit goods from the United States was fully restored. Napoleon Bonaparte returned Louisiana to French control from Spain in 1800, under the Treaty of San Ildefonso (Louisiana had been a Spanish colony since 1762.) However, the treaty was kept secret, and Louisiana remained under Spanish control until a transfer of power to France on November 30, 1803, just three weeks before the cession to the United States. James Monroe and Robert R. Livingston traveled to Paris to negotiate the purchase in 1802. Their interest was only in...

Khmer Rouge Research Paper

...not be counted on to act in any positive way for the benefit of US aims and policies’”, the United States conflict in neighboring Vietnam brought about incredible changes to an unsuspecting people (qted. in Dunlop 70). The countryside was bombed by the United States in order to uproot suspected North Vietnamese holdouts and supply routes starting in 1969. These bombing raids, which devastated the people of Cambodia and left the country with absolute political instability, allowed for the seizure of government control led by a group of students of communist ideology. This group was called the Khmer Rouge, and in 1975 their guerilla armies seized the capital of Phonm Pehn and gained control of the country of Cambodia. They renamed the country Democratic Kampuchea and began the process of restructuring the government and country according to their ideals. These ideals led the Khmer Rouge to commit a purging of their own people and the “deadliest democide of the 20th century” (Rummel 4). They reigned with absolute authority over Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. At the end of their height of power, they had taken over two million lives in the name of their revolution. Their bloody revolution clearly shows the danger of a population that lives in a state of constant fear, giving up their rights and freedoms to a small group of extremely idealistic people. The rise of the killing fields also showcases the consequences of a superpower’s actions in a country when no thought is put towards......

Louisiana Tax Reform

...Louisiana Tax Reform: Eliminating Corporate and Franchise Taxes The relationship between tax policies and economic growth is a topic that has been frequently debated. For decades, economists have developed studies exploring this relationship and analyzing its effects. These studies concluded that a negative relationship exists between taxes and economic growth. Taxes have a negative impact on economic growth because of how they influence the activities individuals and firms choose to engage in. Businesses and individuals often base their decisions on the overall tax burden, which creates a disincentive to engage in activities taxed at a higher rate. The Tax Foundation evaluates each state’s business tax climate every year in order to indicate which states’ tax systems are the most attractive to business and economic growth. According to the Tax Foundation’s 2013 State Business Tax Climate Index, Louisiana’s tax system is currently ranked 32nd, far below the rankings of progressive southern states such as Florida and Texas. In addition, Louisiana’s tax structure is poorly perceived because of its complexity. Therefore, in order to create a competitive advantage, the Louisiana tax system must be reformed. Several of the states that rank highest in the 2013 State Business Tax Climate Index do not levy a tax on corporations. Furthermore, the average annual growth rates for those states without a corporate income tax exceeded the growth rate of all other states...

Louisiana Purchase-Fur Trader

...In 1803 President Thomas Jefferson purchased the Louisiana territory from France. After the Louisiana Purchase Treaty was made, Jefferson decided an exploration of the newly purchased land and the territory beyond the "great rocky mountains" was needed. His reasons for the exploration were simple. He hoped to establish trade with the Native American people of the West. He also hoped to discover a water route to the Pacific Ocean. Jefferson also believed we could learn a lot about the geography of the West, the lives of the Native Americans, the plants and animals, the weather, and how they were different from the East. To lead this journey President Jefferson chose his personal secretary, Meriwether Lewis, a man who had previous skills as a frontiersman. Lewis then chose William Clark, who was known as a great draftsman and frontiersman. Lewis chose Clark as co-commanding captain of the Expedition, even though Clark was never recognized as such by the government. Together they collected a diverse military Corps of Discovery that would be able to undertake a two-year journey to the great ocean. A total of 33 men comprised this group of Explorers. Accompanying the men on this trip was also William Clark's personal slave, York and a female Indian named Sacagawea. The Lewis and Clark expedition started in St. Louis, Missouri. On May 14, 1804 they started up the Missouri River on the Corps of Discovery. They would travel up the river. Near Sioux City, Iowa, the expedition......

Ford Rouge Plant

...Henry Mai GSC 3600 Kevin Ketels Fall 2013 Ford Rouge Plant Visit Located in Dearborn, Michigan, the Ford Rouge Plant was a mile-and-a-half wide and more than a mile long. The multiplex of 93 buildings totaled 15,767,708 square feet of floor area crisscrossed by 120 miles of conveyors. Henry Ford’s ultimate goal was to achieve total self-sufficiency by owning, operating and coordinating all the resources needed to produce complete automobiles. Eventually, the Rouge produced virtually every Model T component, but assembly of the Model T remained at Highland Park. According to Henry Ford: The principles of assembly are these: (1) Place the tools and the men in the sequence of the operation so that each component part shall travel the least possible distance while in the process of finishing. (2) Use work slides or some other form of carrier so that when a workman completes his operation, he drops the part always in the same place—which place must always be the most convenient place to his hand—and if possible have gravity carry the part to the next workman for his operation. (3) Use sliding assembling lines by which the parts to be assembled are delivered at convenient distances. Also, what did I found most interesting about my visit was back in the 1930s, more than 100,000 people worked at the Rouge. To accommodate them required a multi-station fire department, a modern police force, a fully staffed hospital and a maintenance crew 5,000 strong. One new car......

Analysis of Moulin Rouge

...Analysis of Moulin Rouge Deidra Lyyski ENG 225 Introduction to Film Instructor Kenneth Newton April 10, 2013 Analysis of Moulin Rouge Many films use a stylistic system to structure a narrative around a main thematic idea. Baz Luhrman’s 2001 Oscar winning masterpiece Moulin Rouge (Luhrman, 2001) is one such film that contains each of these narrative elements: sound, cinematography, mise-en-scene, and editing. A more in-depth analysis requires that mise-en-scene to be broken down into the categories of setting, color usage, costume, makeup and hairstyle, and props. Through these elements, the movie’s theme of Bohemian inspired ideals of beauty, freedom, truth, and above all things: love is illustrated. Along with highlighting the prominent themes and symbols evident in the film, I will analyze how each of the above mentioned are used. The film is set in the village of Montmarte, Paris during the pre-war era between 1899 and 1900. Christian (Ewan McGregor), an impoverished poet, comes to Paris and falls in with a group of Bohemians who want to sell a musical number to Harold Zidler (Jim Broadbent), the owner of the Moulin Rouge. Zidler needs a financial backer to transform the bordello into a modern theater; the rich Duke of Worcester (Richard Roxburgh) is persuaded to back the renovations as well as a spectacular new show, written primarily by Christian, in return for Zidler’s guarantee that the Duke retains the exclusive favors of Satine (Nicole Kidman), the club’s......

Khmer Rouge Modern History Concepts

...political regime known as the Khmer Rouge took control of the country. During this time it is estimated that around 2 million people perished, over a quarter of the population, from torture and execution or from starvation and untreated illness (Fawthrop & Jarvis, 2005). Although the regime ended with defeat by the Vietnamese over 30 years ago, the effects from this reign of terror continues to have an impact on Cambodia. The countries social coexistence, peace building process and the aftermath of the annihilation of so many of its people has affected the current population make up in terms of age, gender ratios and has left many with mental health problems (Bockers, Stammel & Knaevelsrud, 2011). There is some international debate as to whether the deaths are considered to be genocide, and why the men responsible for these senseless mass murders have not been brought to justice. The definition of genocide is the deliberate killing of people who belong to a particular racial, political, or cultural group. This definition clearly explains the mass murders undertaken under the direction of pol pot and the Khmer rouge party. It is a very difficult task to prosecute people under genocide charges as they are usually protected by a government of group of followers. Cambodians believe it would somehow diminish the offence if the term “genocide” was not used to explain the mass murders of their people (Fawthrop & Jarvis, 2005). Khmer Rouge or the People's Revolutionary......

Use of Short Takes in Moulin Rouge

...Anarchy of Moulin Rouge Moulin Rouge is a film that is noted for its non-traditional use of cinematography its, shot durations, and its special effects, in order to convey certain themes or tones throughout its run. One of these themes is disorientation, which sees usage in multiple key scenes of the film. In an early scene, Christian helps Toulouse-Lautrec’s group rehearse Spectacular Spectacular, a play the group is developing. The artistic differences between the group’s members are rendered with very short takes. Each of the characters’ suggestions is given one take, interspersed with even shorter takes of Christian and Audrey’s reactions. As the characters start talking over one another, close ups of them are rendered with even quicker shots than before. This usage of short takes helps accentuate the groups’ disparity. This lack of direction disorientates both the audience and Christian, who serves as the film’s narrator. As such, third person shots of Christian are used to showcase him trying to gain the groups’ attention. When he finally sings out his lyrics for the play, shot durations become noticeably longer, showing that the situation is slowly coming to order thanks to his suggestion. In the next scene, we get our first glimpse of the Moulin Rouge. The audience is quickly treated to a wide variety of spectacular characters, shown mostly in medium long and close up shots. Short takes of are used to depict most of the scene, as the characters practically flash......

In words from the film: ‘ It’s astory about beauty, about freedom but above all these things it’s astory about love’ (Moulin Rouge, 2001). The content of the film isabout how a penniless English writer met Moulin Rouge’s star Satinewho was also a courtesan. Having both fallen in love they then haveto overcome many obstacles to be together, the biggest challengewas to overcome the Cabaret’s investor, the Duke, who ‘bought’ Satine exclusively to himself. To make connections between thestory and the way the film was constructed few facts about thestory type need to be discussed.Defining story’s type as well as the genre in which it will beproduced defines how the film has to be constructed. This story is aperfect example of external conflict between main characters andthe society. What it means is opposing points of view are meetingfor example; lovers and their thirst to be free to express the feelingversus society and its restricting rules.

Burbery Baton Rouge Discussion

...1) Burby described Baton Rouge initially as a “sleepy southern town” (Burby, 161). Baton Rouge began as most other cities began, clean, unpolluted, and most importantly, unaffected by the many common problems associated with industrialization. This small city in Louisiana became one of the nations leading petrochemical complexes and the devastation that came along with this transition was quite grand. The aftermath of all this industrialization fell onto the lives of ethnic minorities and the poor, and for the longest time it seemed like no one cared. It wasn’t until 1993 in an environmental justice hearing that citizens demanded “environmentally friendly ‘green’ businesses” (Burby, 176). Personally, from my understanding of the reading, Baton Rouge was not sustainable in anyway. Throughout the early half of the century people treated the place as if it had an infinite capacity to support heavy industrialization. As the reading states, “planners, government, and the legal system have done little to right these wrongs.” (Burby, 161). Essentially, no one cared about the environmental aspects of industrialization and simply carried forth with expansion, hence sustainability of the city is in my opinion, non-existent. On an ethical standpoint, this city wasn’t sustainable what so ever, the minorities, mostly the low-income black neighborhoods suffered greatly as a result of these factories that would dump waste in or near by. Additionally, residents began to move into marshlands...

Rouge Trader Case Study

...mempertanyakan mengapa Barings meminjamkan lebih dari USD 500 juta ke nasabahnya untuk bertransaksi di SIMEX, dan hanya menghasilkan return 10 persen. Juga tak jelas yang dimaksudkan Leeson untuk dibiayai, namun kerugian Barings akan sangat signifikan jika nasabah ini mengalami wanprestasi. Komite Kredit di bawah pimpinan George Maclean bersikeras bahwa menjadi kebijakan Barings untuk membiayai transaksi margin oleh nasabah sampai bisa ditagih. Tapi tak ada batasan jumlah dana tambahan per nasabah. Nasabah yang meminjam dana dengan cara ini jelas tidak menjalani proses persetujuan kredit. 3) Is there anything related to the risk management procedure? If yes, what was the risk management failure? Permasalahan yang terjadi dalam film “Rouge Trader” ini sangat berkaitan dengan gagalnya pihak Baring’s Bank dalam melakukan prosedur manajemen risiko. Manajemen risiko adalah suatu proses mengidentifikasi, mengukur risiko, serta membentuk strategi untuk mengelolanya melalui sumber daya yang tersedia. Bangkrutnya Baring’s Bank merupakan contoh dari risiko operasi yaitu kelemahan dalam system informasi atau kontrol internal.

Louisiana Wetlands

...[Type the company name] | Louisiana Wetlands | HORT Professionalism Spring 2012 | | Travis Gabourel | 5/7/2012 | | The Louisiana's wetlands are a vital habitat for many types of plants and animals. They provide stopover grounds for millions of migratory birds and homes for many endangered species. The wetlands are an intergral part of our ecosystem, and the world’s ecosystem. There are 2 main types of wetlands in louisna these are swamped wetlands (forested) , and marsh wetlands. Although these areas make up a very small percentage of the land found in the USA, Southern Louisiana contains 40-45% of the wetlands found in the lower states. This is because Louisiana is the drainage gateway for the Gulf Of Mexico called the Lower Mississippi Regional Watershed . The Lower Mississippi Regional Watershed drains more than 24 million in seven states from southern Illinois to the Gulf of Mexico. This is why the wetlands of this area are important at a national scale. Wetlands are extremely valuable to society.  Wetlands can decrease flooding , remove pollutants from water , recharge groundwater, protect shorelines, provide habitat for wildlife , and serve important recreational and cultural functions.  Taken as a whole, it is estimated that the aggregate value of services generated by wetlands throughout the world is $4.9 trillion per year. The swamps and marshes of coastal Louisiana help support the State’s more than $1 billion per year seafood industry. ......
