Samuel Huntington’s writing holds a stronger position than does Louis Menand. Huntington is pointing out facts in his article, while Menand is less fact based and seems to merely indicate Huntington is wrong because Menand thinks so. Pointing to key aspects of Huntington’s argument and how Menand ‘refutes’ them will show that his opinion is less factual. Where as Menand uses his interpretation of what Huntington basis his writings on to form his conclusions.

In Huntington’s article, One Nation Out of Many, Huntington chronologically goes thru the immigration of the United States detailing how early immigrants had a desire to become American in both nationality and core culture. He illustrates how American business and government used their resources to assist in the teaching of immigrants both the language and culture. It was a time when an industrial powerhouse like Ford Motor Company was thinking in line with US Government, both creating schools that taught “American ways, the English language, and the right way to live.” Huntington goes further to explain how immigrants had a desire no only to assimilate, but how they internally believe in the United States as their Country. The decline of this belief in Core Culture is explained by way of Government trying to move to a multicultural position even as the American public remains strong to the Core Culture.

Huntington details how in several cases the Government was out of touch with the voters. Where both presidential candidates in 1988 opposed official English language measures on ballots in Florida, Arizona, and Colorado. Joined by many other government agencies and officials, the view of both candidates differed from elections results where all three measures passed easily. Huntington further goes on to explain the strong Hispanic influence in the United States and how that culture in…...

Ps 101

...in Congress, electing fourteen senators and 107 federal deputies. The PMDB had two important ministries, plus the Secretariat of Regional Development in the Cardoso government. With the defeat of Quêrcia and the loss of São Paulo State, the party has no coherent national leadership, and the support of its sizable congressional delegation is uncertain. In 1997 the PMDB became the second largest party in Congress, losing its first-rank position to the PFL. A manifesto signed by three governors, ten senators, and sixty federal deputies in December 1984 officially launched the center-right Liberal Front Party. In the January 15, 1985, electoral college, the PMDB-Liberal Front-PDS ticket of Tancredo Neves and José Sarney received the votes of 102 federal deputies, fifteen senators, and fifty-one delegates still nominally affiliated with the PDS. In 1985 the PFL became the second largest party in Congress. It received a mere 8.8 percent of the votes in the municipal elections of November 1985, but when Sarney was able to reform the cabinet inherited from Tancredo Neves in February 1986, the PFL received six ministries. In 1992 the PFL elected nearly 1,000 mayors, second only to the PMDB. Although the PFL is noted for its neoliberal ideology, it is always predisposed to pragmatic bargaining, such as in 1994, when it abstained from running its own presidential candidate and joined with the PSDB and PTB. Although it elected only two governors, it remained the second largest party in......

Mintzberg 5 Ps of Strategy

...The Strategy Concept I: Five Ps for Strategy* Human nature insists on a definition for every concept. The field of strategic management cannot afford to rely on a single definition of strategy, indeed the word has long been used implicitly in different ways even if it has traditionally been defined formally in only one. Explicit recognition of multiple definitions can help practitioners and researchers alike to maneuver through this difficult field. Accordingly, this article presents five definitions of strategy-as plan, ploy, pattern, position, and perspective-and considers some of their interrelationships. To almost anyone you care to ask, strategy is a plan-some sort of consciously intended course of action, a guideline (or set of guidelines) to deal with a situation. A kid has a "strategy" to get over a fence, a corporation has one to capture a market. By this definition, strategies have two essential characteristics: they are made in advance of the actions to which they apply, and they are developed consciously and purposefully. (They may, in addition, be stated explicitly, sometimes in formal documents known as "plans," although it need not be taken here as a necessary condition for "strategy as plan.") To Drucker, strategy is "purposeful action"', to Moore "design for action," in essence, "conception preceding actionn2 A host of definitions in a variety of fields reinforce this view. For example: in the military: Strategy is concerned with "draft[ing] the plan of......

...Research Paper English 102 University Maryland University College   All character in literature face conflicts whether they are external or internal, for these three short stories there are multiple forms of conflict that the characters will face that can alter the plot or theme of the story.   In the first story The Gift of the Magi the main character is struggling with internal conflicts about how to get her husband a gift for Christmas. The couple only made twenty dollars a week and Della the wife only had less than two dollars to buy her husband’s gift. Della had already checked and all the gifts she would want to get for him were more than what she had. This was a poor family and the only two things they had in the world they were proud of was “The James Dillingham Young's were very proud of two things which they owned. One thing was Jim’s gold watch. It had once belonged to his father. And, long ago, it had belonged to his father’s father. The other thing was Della’s hair. If a queen had lived in the rooms near theirs, Della would have washed and dried her hair where the queen could see it. Della knew her hair was more beautiful than any queen’s jewels and gifts.” (Henrey, O). The conflict for Della was to either cut and get rid of her prized possession or to not give her loving husband a gift for Christmas. Della thought hard about her decision but in the end she chose to do something kind for her husband.   If Della wouldn’t have......

Humanities 102

...Humanities Today Paper Marlon Chambers HUM/102 Jan 22, 2015 Nancy Erickson Humanities Today Paper In this paper, I will discuss humanities. I will differentiate between the humanities and other modes of human inquiry and expression. I shall list types of humanities and explain why each one gives reflects current developments in politics, socioeconomics, and technology. Colorado State University defines humanities as, “The branches of learning (such as philosophy or languages) that investigate human constructs and concerns, as opposed to natural processes. The humanities, such as classical and modern languages, literature, history, and philosophy, have the overall goal of the exploration and explanation of human experience.” Art has long been a means of expressing social or political ideas. Anselm Kiefer took art and brought it to an entirely new level by using his art to bring attention to national identity and collective memory. In the process his art began evolving to include occult symbolism, theology, and mysticism. All of his work shares a common theme of the trauma experienced by entire societies and the continual rebirth and renewal in life. Music defines periods of history as well as generations. It evolves with societies/cultures and tends to give people their identity. Music has a strong connection through celebration, remembrance, expression of emotions, and ministering to others. It allows the human race to connect......

...Tatiana Brown Spanish 102 Cultural Project The country I have decided to choose is the amazing and beautiful island of the Dominican Republican. The reason I have chosen this country is because I plan on vacationing here over summer break. My significant other and I have been trying to find different places to vacation and this project was a perfect opportunity for me to explore one of our favorite options. The beautiful island of the Dominican Republic is positioned in the Caribbean Sea, and it is a portion of the West Indies. Its region equals that of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. The Dominican Republic shares the land with Haiti and the whole island is known as Hispaniola. The Dominican Republic lies on the east side of the island and Haiti is on the west. Hispaniola was the name given when Christopher Columbus discovered it when he revealed it on his formerly voyage in 1492. The establishing of this island was very significant to European settlers and it played a main part in the economic growth that Europe had when the new world was discovered. The cultivation that is part of this island has help establish an economic structure that has led the Dominican Republic become what it has today. The population of the Dominican Republic today is around 10.5 million. The nationality of the people living in this country are Dominicans. There is some mixed ethic groups including blacks and whites. The Dominican Republic Close to 46% of that population is under the......

Ps 340 Final Assignment

...PS 340 Unit 9 Final Assignment: Tracey’s Story 9/2/2015 Tracey is a twenty-one-year-old student who has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Although Tracey has difficult with transitions, she is determined to achieve all of the essential accomplishments of a normal young adult. Can Tracey get past her impulsive behavior, and all of the other symptoms of her disorder, to transition into adulthood? With the right plan in place, I believe Tracey will be able to achieve her goals and transition into adulthood. In this paper, I plan to outline a plan that will assist Tracey with her transition (Heward, 2013). Tracey has set several goals that will assist her in her development into adulthood with independence. Tracey’s goal for her education is to attend college. Unfortunately Tracey only possesses a second grade reading level, which will mean she will require assistance with college level coursework if she is to succeed. Tracey also aspires to work in an office someday, just like her father does. Another major goal that Tracey has is to move into an apartment with a friend from college, upon graduation (Heward, 2013). There are several types of supports that can be offered to Tracey to assist her with transitioning into her goal of having an office job. Clustered placement is where job coach supports between 2-6 individuals with ASD in a common community setting. Support is provided throughout the tenure of employment, but may be faded over time.......

...Trident University David Jones Module 2 SLP Assignment ENG 102 Dr. Mike Mack February 9, 2015 Our society today functions on the technology that exist in our world today; our children are constantly around technology which could have a lasting effect on them. Not too long ago children used to play outside and be active, nowadays children are staying at home in order to be on-line or play video games. Today’s children have a higher exposure to technology than any previous generation; technology will continue to advance in the future but at what cost? Will our children be able to function without it? Technology in the 21st century has impacted our children deeply; the use of technology has skyrocketed over the past few years, our children today encounter and utilize technology constantly at home and at school. Media devices like video games, television, computers, and cell phones play a major role in the development of 21st century child. Compared with the MP3 players, and Palm Pilots of the 1990s, the technology today has truly advanced, causing many people to become dependent on media-related devices. In my opinion it is arguably impossible to imagine kids today living their daily lives without any consumption of technology; technology is everywhere causing our children to have access via their cell phones, at home, or at school. Access to technology has hurt the modern day child as they depend on it for everything; many of our children cling to social......

Hy 102

...Bryan Savage HY 102-016 Essay #1 The Age of Enlightenment refers to the sprawling intellectual, philosophical, cultural and social movement that spread through England, France, Germany, and other parts of Europe during the 18th century. The Enlightenment is often thought of as a time of change but also of tradition. Toward the middle of the eighteenth century, Enlightenment thinkers began to apply the ideas of Bacon, Locke, and Newton, to their newfound perspective of life. Locke argued that human nature was mutable and that knowledge was gained through accumulated experience rather than by accessing some sort of outside truth. Newton's calculus and optical theories provided the powerful Enlightenment metaphors for precisely measured change and illumination. Scientific rationalism, exemplified by the scientific method, was the hallmark of everything related to the Enlightenment. Near the end of the Renaissance, thinkers believed that the advances of science and industry foreshowed a new age of egalitarianism and progress for humankind. The intellectuals, also known as the philosophes, hoped they could create a new society in the belief that education could create better human beings and a better human society. Such philosophes as Montesquieu, Voltaire, Diderot, Hume, Quesnay, Smith, Beccaria, Condorcet, and Rousseau attacked traditional religion as the enemy, advocated religious toleration and freedom of thought creating a new science of man. In doing so, the......
