The United States Supreme court ruled the Constitution’s Bill of Rights restricted only the powers of the federal and subsequently not those of the states in the case of Barron v. Baltimore in 1833. The petitioner, John Barron, was seeking a ruling against the city of Baltimore. Barron claimed the city had violated his Fifth Amendment rights. “The Fifth Amendment provides that the government may not take private property without just compensation”.
Barron alleged that his wharf was too shallow for most boats to dock because of a road construction project. The city had dumped sand and other solid materials into the wharf impeding the water depth. After the first law suit, the state court found the city had deprived Barron of his rights to private property and awarded him $4,500 in damages. This compensation was to be paid by the city. Subsequently, an appellate court reversed the award, Barron appealed to the USSC, to which the case was reviewed in 1833.
The opinion of the court was written by Chief Justen John Marshall. The decision upheld that the Bill of Rights delegated no power to the states and was only an application of the Federal Government. At that time, the Constitution was, seemingly, created only to apply to the Federal Government and not for individual states. Some states had drafted their own constitutions; however, Maryland had no law which mirrored the Fifth Amendment. The Supreme Court thus lacked jurisdiction (or power) to hear Barron's case and dismissed it.
The Dred Scott v Sandford ruling ultimately ruled that African Americans, whether free or slave, were not American citizens and could not formally sue in federal court. The Court, subsequently, ruled that Congress lacked power to ban slavery in the U.S. territories. Finally, the Court declared that the rights of slave owners were constitutionally protected by the Fifth Amendment because…...

No Second Chances Here

...No Second Chances Here Can prisoners be rehabilitated? My preliminary response to this question is yes, prisoners can be rehabilitated, but prison is not the place for that to happen. I believe that people want to change if they are driven to change within themselves. Never have I seen or heard of a man who changed because someone else told him he should. He had to want to be rehabilitated. It is my personal opinion that you can’t take every man in prison and expect him to be successfully rehabilitated. He has to prove that he truly wants to change, and then the process can begin. What do I mean by rehabilitation? I believe that rehabilitation, when referring to prisoners, is taking an inmate, finding his or her weaknesses, and strengthening them to better him or her permanently. By permanently I mean to the point where they could be released back into society without any concern that he or she would relapse and cause a disturbance again, whether it be the same crime they previously committed or a new one altogether. For example, in Scott Antworth’s essay “The Tower Pig”, he discusses how he has tried to better himself during his time in prison. In the end of the essay his guard takes him to his grandmother’s funeral, where he lets him out of his chains. He didn’t do anything stupid, and both he and the guard trusted his judgment. That is rehabilitation. Every person on the face of the earth has a weakness. In general, a weakness is viewed as a flaw that causes one to......

Why Am I Here

...Why am I Here? The decision to further my education was made long before I completed high school; however, at the time I did not have the resources at my disposal to achieve my life goals. In conversations I had with individuals that I surrounded myself with I realized that furthering my education should be a top priority. The decision was made to join the armed services which had a huge impact on my life. Not only did the rigors of military life provide me with the discipline that I would need to succeed, but it would eventually avail a litany of resources thereby enabling me to pursue select long and short-term goals such as purchasing property and building a home. Over the years I’ve been motivated by an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and by living vicariously through family, friends, and their college experience(s). Along comes the Great Recession; a period in our history that continues to impact every hard working American and the global society. The unfortunate events leading up to the recession and the subsequent implosion of the economy, if you will, forced me to seriously ponder my future. Why now? “Why not?” would be the easiest way to answer that question, but the more obvious answer is the fulfillment of my goals. You see I never gave up on them I just chose another route. I envision a better quality of life following successful completion of my degree program that will not only affect me but family and friends. I presume that more opportunities will present......

...mother who did not know better. She wasn’t ignoring her baby’s wants and needs of her own accord, she had decided to follow the only guidance she had and that was a book that said set a schedule and stick to it. The mother seems to know better now that she has experienced having more children. Emily’s mother had to leave her daughter with “the woman downstairs to whom she(Emily) was no miracle at all”, when she would finally get home after running to go see her daughter after work Emily would break into a “clogged weeping” that the mother can still hear. Although it was better after she found a night job the mother was forced to send Emily to go live with her father’s family until she could raise the money to bring her back. The question here is why couldn’t Emily’s mother find the appropriate care for her daughter and still be able to work? Why was there no program to help someone in this situation have the ability to still care for her daughter and work at the same time. Society made it impossible for her to survive because it was so rare for a mother to need assistance in caring for her child and it was very rare indeed for her to even be working. “She was two. Old enough for nursery school they said.” Again the mother recognizes that she was forced to do something that she would not do with her subsequent children, pried by the norms of society into following the sheep, or drinking proverbial the Kool-Aid. She sent Emily to nursery school and she knew that the......

As encouraging as these numbers are, they tell only part of the story. A significant benefit to being agile—but one not reflected here—is that agile teams are less likely to build functionality that is no longer needed. A common criticism of a sequential development process is that by the time the software is delivered, the users no longer need the functionality being provided. Because of the frequent feedback, timeboxed sprints, and ability to reprioritize each sprint, a Scrum team is more likely to work only on features users really need. Were we to include this in our measurement of productivity, we would see even more dramatic results.

Used to Live Here Once

...Used to Live Here Once Brandie Markos-Murr ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Michael O’Donnell November 17, 2013 Used to Live Here Once In the short story “Used to Live Here Once” (Rhys, 1976), tells the tale of one woman’s spiritual journey on her path in the afterlife. The underlying theme in this story is death. Although, “death” is not immediately obvious until the final passage; however, reflecting back, subtle hints were presented throughout the story leading to its ironical outcome. To understand and capture the theme of a story, Clugston (2010) explains that the plot, the mood, and not even the attitude of the author can depict a story’s theme. The theme is the underlying idea, shaped in a unique way that is brought to life through various elements to make the underlying idea concrete. The two key elements utilized in this story were setting and symbolism. Each played a significant role to capture the theme of this narrative. The story begins in a country setting; a woman is standing at the edge of a flowing river. It was a clear and sunny day and the sky was blue. As I read the opening paragraphs, I had a sense that the environment described felt to be peaceful and serene, as one might feel when they transcend into the afterlife. I believe this to be the author’s first hint at the theme, and set the mood for the entire story. The setting is an important element in story telling; as Annenberg Learner (2013), explains, the [setting] “is the crossroads of...

Here There Be Tygers

...Literary essay “Here There Be Tygers” ”The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn” – Marcus Tullius Cicero The school is supposed to be a place where children can let their imagination flow. But in the school of the 1960´s, rules, authorities, discipline and the promise of physical punishment to those who did not obey, subjugated children’s imagination. Stephen King’s short story from 1968 “Here There Be Tygers” is about a strict teacher and a young boy whose imagination comes to live in the shape of a fearsome tiger, and challenges the order and the strict discipline of a US primary school. The story is narrated from the main character Charles´ perspective. The narrator is a third person, non-omniscient narrator, which means that we see the world trough Charles´ eyes, from a child’s perspective. This signifies that we see things that happen, the way he experiences it. To Charles, the tiger, which he encounters in the men’s bathroom, is as real as Miss Bird. Charles feels that his teacher, Miss Bird, is hostile towards him, the narrator says: ”She meant to pounce. Charles thought that miss bird was about to find out what pouncing was really about”(p.159, l.23-25). This displays Charles´ apprehension towards miss Bird because, from his perspective, it feels like his teacher really is attacking him. From a grown ups perspective, miss Birds behaviour would not seem as aggressive as it does to Charles. Charles has a very......

Here There Be Tygers

...“Here There Be Tygers” By Stephen King “Logic will get you from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.” (Albert Einstein). This is just one out of Albert Einstein’s many famous quotes about imagination. Einstein was against society and its way to learn and educate children. Now at days society has high expectation that we follow the rules and focus on getting good grades. Yes, knowledge is off cause a good thing and we need that to learn and evolve to be mature adults. Knowledge will get you from A to Z, but imagination can take you wherever you like to go. Off cause we have to follow the set of rules society makes, but that doesn’t give them the right to tell us what to do or interfere in our naturally evolvement. ”Here there be tygers”(1968), is a short story written by Stephen King. The short story is about how a boy’s imagination and free will, can lead a rebellious strike against modern society. The story is narrated from Charles’ perspective and the narrator is a third person, nom-omniscient narrator. The story takes place in the Acorn Street Grammar School. We can’t be sure about the historical time, but two posters on the bulletin board in the hall within the school indicate that the historical time might take place around the 1970’s in USA. The woodsy owl made its first appearance in 1971 and officer friendly was an officer in the U.S Marine Corps who travelled around to schools in the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Within the school, the story especially......

...Running head: SOMETHING HAPPENING HERE There’s Something Happening Here: Occupying Wall Street Mindy Newell, R.N., CNOR Grand Canyon University NRS – 432V Teresa Ortner, RNC, MSNEd October 8, 2011 There’s Something Happening Here: Occupying Wall Street The Plan of Action On September 17, 2011, nearly 1,000 protesters gathered around the symbolic sculpture of a charging bull that is the focal point of Bowling Green Park, which is in the financial district of downtown Manhattan, to say to the kings of Wall Street “Enough! No more! You will not continue to profit on the broken backs and weary shoulders of we, the people! You will not destroy the American dream with your greed!” They did not leave, but hoisted tents and unrolled sleeping bags to “Occupy Wall Street” (Smith, 2011). Since that day, the movement has spread across the country, from New York up the coast to Boston, down the coast through Washington to Miami, and across the country through Chicago and St. Louis all the way to Los Angeles, from large metropolises to small towns across America. It has become a genuine social and political movement, utilizing both old media such as newspapers and television news and new media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube (Ellis, Raja & Follman, 2011).

...(usually softens) the rhetorical effect (“die” vs. “pass away” vs. “in a better place”). Different choices of language signal different implications and underlying philosophies. Euphemisms tend to distance the audience from the subject, using more vague and imprecise language (“collateral damage” vs. “unintended killings,” “got the better end of the deal,” vs. “swindled the other guy”). Paraphrase: An alternative phrasing of an author’s original language. Don’t paraphrase simply to pretend an author’s arguments or content are your ideas, or to avoid accusations of plagiarism. Instead, paraphrase in order to reveal something that wasn’t obvious in the author’s original words. Effective paraphrases make the implicit explicit (“What she’s saying here is...”) Always give credit to your sources, even when you paraphrase. Summary: Similar to paraphrase (in that you choose your own words to describe an author’s argument), except in a summary, you compress large portions of text into a much smaller space. You’ll need to choose specific things to focus on in a summary. You aren’t trying to restate every claim and every piece of evidence. Instead, choose smaller parts of the text that are relevant to your work and explain how you want your reader to understand them. Quotation: A rhetor’s exact language reproduced with precise accuracy (no words changed!), attributed to them, and presented in quotation marks.

...eventually disappear. Extinction is a behavioral strategy that does not promote desirable behaviors but can help to reduce undesirable behaviors. Punishment Punishment is a control device employed in organizations to discourage and reduce annoying behaviors of employees. OBSERVATIONAL LEARNING Observational learning results from watching the behavior of another person and appraising the consequences of that behavior. It does not require an overt response. When Mr. X observes that Y is rewarded for superior performance, X learns the positive relationship between performance and rewards without actually obtaining the reward himself. Observational learning plays a crucial role in altering behaviors in organizations. Cognitive Learning Here the primary emphasis is on knowing how events and objects are related to each other. Most of the learning that takes place in the classroom is cognitive learning. Cognitive learning is important because it increases the change that the learner will do the right thing first, without going through a lengthy operant conditioning process. LEARNING THEORY AND ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR The relevance of the learning theories for explaining and predicting of organizational behavior is marginal. This does not mean that learning theories are totally irrelevant. Learning concepts provide a basis for changing behaviors that are unacceptable and maintaining those behavior that are acceptable. When individuals engage in......
