This Week in Relation to the Course

CJA/334 addresses various questions and problems of various components of the criminal justice system. As with other disciplines, criminal justice is sometimes difficult to define, as it involves issues that involve cross-discipline issues from psychology and public administration to sociology and law. Criminal justice research addresses all aspects from police, courts, corrections, criminal procedures, juveniles, and a host of other mundane problems faced by stakeholders.

Heffner writes that research uses the process of deductive reasoning which “refers to a structured approach utilizing an accepted premise (known as a major premise), a related minor premise, and an obvious conclusion” (2004).

According to Heffner (2004), the research process may…...

In addition, you are unlikely to receive feedback on your results, unless you have been successfully selected.    | Training for Assessors: A collection of activities for training assessment centre assessors, roleplayers and resource persons 25/07/2002 - 16:42 - 1877 reads The data generated from assessment and development centres depends as much on the skill of the assessors as it does on the skill of the candidates. Poorly trained assessors are unlikely to be objective in their observations, will misinterpret or inadequately record evidence, probably come to the wrong conclusions and, if that weren't bad enough, the chances are they'll lack the techniques to provide effective feedback to the candidates they have so misjudged. Lindy Strudwick's collection of activities provides a means of training assessors to an appropriate level of skill, quickly and cost-effectively.

...I would be an Anti-Federalist, due to the fact that they didn't despise federalism, they just wanted to make improvements. They worked to put more power into the states hands. Just as Anti-Federalist believe, I agree with the constitution but the bill of rights that was later added on was essential. The bill of rights is a huge essence in our personal rights that we have day in and day out. I don't know what our country would be like without these rights in place. Federalists were people who believed that the constitution was perfect as it was. They also pushed to get it ratified immediately. Federalists were also in support of a strong centralized government. "A pure democracy can admit no cure for the mischiefs of faction. A common passion or interest will be felt by a majority, and there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party. Hence it is, that democracies have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths." During this time on conflict, two plans were brought into the picture to resolve the issue. The Virginia Plan and the New Jersey Plan. Federalists from large states were in favor of the Virginia Plan, because it would give power to the larger states. “We may define a republic to be, or at least may bestow that name on, a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of......

...READ TO ME  Why a love of reading is so important in learning to read.  How to instill children's love for reading, as a teacher or parent (what are your suggestions or ideas for promoting children's motivation of reading)? Overview: The Read to Me Project is targeted at students in pre-school. This program is structured to help in the development of reading skills in young children before kindergarten. By encouraging young children to read you are opening up a gateway to a promising future. As a parent and a teacher you know how important reading is. Teaching reading to young children has too many benefits to list but here’s a few: * Reading encourages academic excellence * Language Skills are improved * Communication skills are increased The issue with learning how to read is that it can be complex to those who have no interest or those who cannot grasp the concept at hand. It is a known fact that everyone learns in a different way. Per Shomshak, L., (2004) some students learn in the following styles: THREE BASIC LEARNING STYLES 1. Auditory learners - like to hear their information, talk about and rehash what they hear, love to read aloud and hear stories. 2. Visual learners - want to see everything, look at pictures, understand better by seeing than hearing, like writing. 3. Kinesthetic learners - like hands-on experience, doing, touching, activity, concrete demonstrations. So how can we instill the love of reading into your minds? This......

...and Chinese restaurants, most them run by Chinese expatriates. Over time these businesses were gradually taken over by local entrepreneurs and the industry flourished. One such prominent salon is Persona, owned by beautician-entrepreneur, Kaniz Almas Khan. Noticing her success, I approached her about the possibility of her working with Insight. She asked me how. I proposed that she might conduct beauty workshops outside Dhaka, in some of the districts all over Bangladesh. In these workshops she could teach her beauty techniques to students, many of who could take it up as a profession. Our Reader's Club would certainly help in any way to make this possible. I was certain that by doing this she would change many people's lives. Many of her students would take this up as a profession and earn a living through these skills. She accepted immediately. She asked me to let her know when and where, and she would go. This was how it started; she became an ambassador for Star Insight. Over a thousand people now work with her. I asked her to tell me something about some of these people. “Many different types of people work for me,” she said. “Many tribal girls work as beauticians. They are really interested in the field, and make up a good part of the industry. Other areas such as management are predominately staffed by locals.” “We also have a group of acid survivors working for us,” she added. “We have several groups working for us that come from the BNWLA.
