2) What was the role of tribes in the rise and fall of dynasties in the Middle East according to Ibn Khaldun?- According to Ibn Khaldun the rise and fall of the dynasties in the middle east can be directly correlated to the different social structures that tribes would embrace. Which will lead to a better military structure.

Compare and contrast the organization of the Arabian tribes with that of the Turko-mongolian tribes of inner asia? The Arabian and turk0- monoglian had some similarities but they also had many differences I will first start with their similarities. Both the Arabian tribes and turko-mongolian consisted of nomadic people, they were a stateless society, with no formal government.
Now let me talk about their differences the Arabian tribes were endxomous meaning they were intermarried this made the tribe very cohesive and insulated. Through this intermarriage created their social stricter which was called egalitarian meaning there was little difference among people no matter rich or poor everyone was on the same level. This made it very difficult to have a ranking system in the military.
The Turko-Monoglian tribes were exgoumous meaning they married outside of the family this was very important especially with building political alliances. There social structure was hierarchical which made a ranking system in the army very important.

How did this difference affect the patter of state formation in pre modern middle east-? These difference affect the pattern of state formation in the pre modern middle east because of having a hieracalce social structure it made it much more easy to create a state or even an empire because of the inside and outside power, along with rankings in the military systems the tribe transformed its self into different caste the ruling elite and the subjects. But what happened with middle eastern tribe was they…...

Messa V. Sullivan Court of Appeals, 1965. 61 Ill.App.2d 386, 209 N.E.2d 872

...Handout #2 Brief Training Materials for Fall 2012 Messa v. Sullivan Court of Appeals, 1965. 61 Ill.App.2d 386, 209 N.E.2d 872. BURMAN, PRESIDING JUSTICE. Betty Messa brought this action against James Sullivan, Helen Sullivan and the Keyman's Club, an Illinois not for profit corporation, to recover damages for the bodily injuries which she sustained as the result of being bitten by the defendants' dog. The complaint was based on two theories: first, a common law action for the keeping of a vicious animal and, second, an action based on what is commonly known as the "Dog Bite Statute" (Ill.Rev.Stat.l963, ch. 8, § 12d). The parties waived a jury and the case was tried by the court. On the common law count, the trial court held for the defendants because he found that the plaintiff was contributorily negligent. No appeal has been taken from the judgment entered on that issue. On the statutory count, however, the court concluded that the plaintiff should recover and therefore he entered judgment awarding the plaintiff damages only against James Sullivan and the Keyman's Club in the amount of $3,000. From this judgment these two defendants appeal. They contend that the plaintiff failed to prove, as she was required to prove in order to recover under the statute, that she was lawfully on the defendants' premises and that she did not provoke the dog to attack. Alternatively the defendants contend that...

Brook Sheilds Postpartum

...Brook Sheilds Postpartum Michaela Martinelli Psychology 410 August 5, 2013 Linda Porcaro Having a baby is one of the happiest events in a womans life; and should be the most important one. Life with a new baby is rewarding just as much as it can be stressful and difficult. Many women transition without harsh difficulties, but there are some women who experience a considerable amount of postpartum disorder (PPD). In the 40 weeks a woman is pregnant her physical and emotional states of mind change. A pregnant woman can often feel sad, anxious, and confused. For the women who are afflicted with PPD, or “the baby blues,” these emotions are short lived. When they do not go away quickly, or these emotions worsen, postpartum may start to effect women. A famous example case of PPD is Brooke Shields, who went through biological, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral issues leading to her PPD. Brooke Shields was born in 1965 and grew up acting as a small child. Sheilds' parents separated when she was young and was raised by her mother. Her father had an active role in her life growing up. After graduating Princeton University she married Andre Agassi and was divorced a couple of years later. After her divorce she started dating again and remarried. They tried for several years to concieve with no luck due to prior surgery causing scar tissue. When Artificial insemination failed they tried in-vitro fertilization. This process involved injections,......

Brooks Odessey

...Op-Ed Columnist The Odyssey Years By DAVID BROOKS Published: October 9, 2007 There used to be four common life phases: childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age. Now, there are at least six: childhood, adolescence, odyssey, adulthood, active retirement and old age. Of the new ones, the least understood is odyssey, the decade of wandering that frequently occurs between adolescence and adulthood. Skip to next paragraph [pic] David Brooks The Way We Live Now During this decade, 20-somethings go to school and take breaks from school. They live with friends and they live at home. They fall in and out of love. They try one career and then try another. Their parents grow increasingly anxious. These parents understand that there’s bound to be a transition phase between student life and adult life. But when they look at their own grown children, they see the transition stretching five years, seven and beyond. The parents don’t even detect a clear sense of direction in their children’s lives. They look at them and see the things that are being delayed. They see that people in this age bracket are delaying marriage. They’re delaying having children. They’re delaying permanent employment. People who were born before 1964 tend to define adulthood by certain accomplishments — moving away from home, becoming financially independent, getting married and starting a family. In 1960, roughly 70 percent of 30-year-olds had achieved these things. By 2000, fewer than 40......

Rap Culture in Comparison to the Tone of Hughes and Brooks

...Rap Culture in Comparison to the Tone of Hughes and Brooks Today it is hard to get into a car and turn on the radio without hearing a song about money, sex, or fame. Modern day rap culture tries to force those three things on our population through their music and lyrics. They have changed many people’s perception of the perfect life through their tone, music, and lyrics. Many poems help express and can relate to the tone of the modern day rap culture. The tone in the poems, “Red Silk Stockings” by Langston Hughes, and “We Real Cool” by Gwendolyn Brooks, can be tied to the tone in rap culture and express many modern American values. Rap culture in the twenty first century has exponentially grown and in turn has influenced daily American live. Today, everyone is exposed to this new rap culture that is developing everywhere. Rap culture started in about the 1970’s in New York City (Sullivan). In those days rap was about everyday life and race but has greatly change since then. Rap songs these days are all about sex, money, drugs, women, cars, and practically any material thing. Many songs talk about how rich the rappers are and the extravagant ways they live. Most songs in rap culture have poor grammar and language. These songs are crude and talk about women only as sex. The view points of modern day rappers are extremely clouded because of what they talk about and how they live. The tone of the Hughes and Brooks poems help to show the tone and expression of modern day rap......

Jensen Shoes: Lyndon Brooks’ Story

...Analysis for Case Jensen Shoes: Lyndon Brooks’ Story Are self-evaluations being hurt? Yes. This case gives us indications that Lyndon had negative core self-evaluations which are explained below: a. Self-esteem: Although not happy with this first assignment he decided to take it up so that it helped him broaden his background and move up in job roles by showing credibility. But he could not complete all his assignments in time. He was later told by Chuck that he would be moved to Strategic Product Marketing and would be reporting to Jane Kravitz as part of reorganizing. Lyndon took this change as the effect of his under-performance and had a feeling of being demoted. This looked like it hit his self-esteem as it gave him feeling of failing in his work and now he had to report to Jane while he himself was in line management before. b. Self-efficacy: In his first project he did believe in his capabilities to take on the project, but when he could not complete it, his work was not well appreciated by Chuck and was also moved to another project. This demotivated him and let him down. He thought he had failed. When he was again assigned the same market in his 2nd project he thought he will fail again in this project and his lack of knowledge of this market will add into the issue. He now did not have confidence in his capabilities and wanted to remain in his comfort zone of line management. c. Locus of control: He seems to display external locus of control as he......

Sociology

...Anthony Tallini 11-16-15 Sociology/Prof. Phillips Social Class and Life Chances Stony Brook and Patchogue Village have differing life chances and social classes all based on social and economic differences. Cultural capital and Social capital play a big role in how you will succeed in social stratification, based on Pierre Bourdieu and Max Weber. In this essay I will explain how five social and economic characteristics affect the towns of Stony Brook CDP and Patchogue Village. Then I’ll inform the reader how both mentioned towns differ from each other and the majority of Americans. Finally I will describe what role would social and cultural capital play in your chances of success in life. Educational attainment is a social characteristic that plays a role in success. In Stony Brook the percent of people with a bachelor’s degree or higher was about 54.5 percent of the population as told by the “usbeacon”, likewise Patchogue’s percent of people with a bachelors or higher was only about 23.1%. This trend can also be seen with those with a graduate and professional degree with Stony brook being at 30.98 percent and Patchogue being at 9.89 percent. “The benefits of having a college education are manifold and range from financial to cultural. From common benefits to some unexpected surprises.”{1} College, as said by Jeff McGuire from Collegeview.com, is a good idea in order to take advantage of social growth and learning. The fact that you’ll be building a career for the...

Chapter 8 Brooks Introductory Econometrics for Finance Solutions

...Solutions to the Review Questions at the End of Chapter 8 1. (a). A number of stylised features of financial data have been suggested at the start of Chapter 8 and in other places throughout the book: - Frequency: Stock market prices are measured every time there is a trade or somebody posts a new quote, so often the frequency of the data is very high - Non-stationarity: Financial data (asset prices) are covariance non-stationary; but if we assume that we are talking about returns from here on, then we can validly consider them to be stationary. - Linear Independence: They typically have little evidence of linear (autoregressive) dependence, especially at low frequency. - Non-normality: They are not normally distributed – they are fat-tailed. - Volatility pooling and asymmetries in volatility: The returns exhibit volatility clustering and leverage effects. Of these, we can allow for the non-stationarity within the linear (ARIMA) framework, and we can use whatever frequency of data we like to form the models, but we cannot hope to capture the other features using a linear model with Gaussian disturbances. (b) GARCH models are designed to capture the volatility clustering effects in the returns (GARCH(1,1) can model the dependence in the squared returns, or squared residuals), and they can also capture some of the unconditional leptokurtosis, so that even if the residuals of a linear model of the form given by the first part of the equation in part......

Intro Paper

...Although my past involvements with various companies have not been entirely based on the management of human resources, I am resolute in building a thorough understanding of disciplines and skills that I can put to use. Furthermore, I am a dedicated individual who is always willing to learn. My passion for success in the lives of others as well as achieving organizational goals fuels the fire within me to take part in this program. My decision to study Human Resource Management at Stony Brook University was not an easy choice to make. I did a lot of research and I took a lot of time to figure out what program best fits my desired area of study. I’ve gained quite a bit of professional experience in different fields of work, but nothing directly dealing with human resource management. I would consider myself to be a bit more of a novice to the industry and would rather a more progressive styled program. I find that the Human Resource Management Masters program is designed to do exactly that. Stony Brook University has a strong comprehensive human resource management program that has the ability to accommodate both seasoned and tender footed professionals like myself. The program is also in alignment with the Society for Human Resource Management’s educational standards, which stood out to me a great deal. My goal for career advancement directly coincides with the educational path the program sets out for its students. Although my desire to teach at an institution of higher......

Abstract: In today's organizations, ethical challenges relate to areas like fraud, right to privacy for consumers, social responsibility, and trade restrictions. For Information Technology (IT) specifically, these can translate to considerations on how technology is used to violate people's privacy, how automation leads to job reductions, or how management information and its corresponding systems are used and abused for personal gain. In the last 25 years, people have seen an overwhelming technology infusion affecting business, education, and society. Virtually all areas of the society have been transformed by the usage of......

The Mother by Gwendolyn Brooks

...The Mother by Gwendolyn Brooks There are a good number of issues in the world that stand unsolved. The debates on some of them are on for ever and ever but a feasible solution has never risen in the horizon. The most prominent among these perennial issues is abortion. It is a topic that has been subjected to serious debate across all the parts of the world. However, so far we have arrived at a convincing answer to believe abortion to be secure and justified or as a heinous crime of the humanity. We have mixed responses, as the topic sways between religious and social perspectives. Gwendolyn Brooks in her poem “Mother” pays tribute to the unborn souls, whose lives were brought to an end by abortion. She begins the poem by addressing the mothers, who have been subjected to abortions. She say that though the mothers have aborted children but the memory of those unborn ones will never fade away from their memory. “The damp small pulps with a little or with no hair, The singers and workers that never handled the air”. Mothers can not forget these little ones that they carried for awhile. Brooks is very creative in her presentation of the concept. She says that as the children aborted were not given a chance to realize their full potentialities, the world can not be sure of what they would have become, if you were allowed to grow. Hence, she calls them as ‘singers and workers’. A touch of satire and irony is very much seen in her presentation of the topic. She says that......

Mr Brooks

...“Mr. Brooks” I chose to do my term paper on the film “Mr. Brooks.” The Plot of the Film consists of the main character; Earl Brooks who is played by Kevin Costner, owner of a successful box business, who is married to a devoted wife, which they have a loving daughter together and love unconditionally. But Mr. Brooks has a terrible secret that he has been able to hide from everyone. That terrible secret happens to be that he is a psychopathic serial killer who is known in media as the “Thumbprint Killer.” Being a wealthy, successful businessman recently honored by the Portland, Oregon, Chamber of Commerce as "Man of the Year" as well as a philanthropist no one has ever suspected him. Being unable to control his horrific addiction, Brooks gives in to his sadistic, all too real alter ego “Marshall” played by William Hurt. A pesky, voyeuristic witness “Mr. Smith,” played by Dane Cook catches him in the act of his latest crime. The rush that Mr. Smith felt after seeing Mr. Brooks brutally kill a couple he used to watch and take pictures of while engaging in sexual activities has set him on a path of destruction and he is taking all the wrong steps to get there. Then there’s the detective, “Tracy Atwood,” played by Demi Moore who has been on the case for quite some time without Mr. Brooks knowledge of it adds a few twists and turns to an already terrifying game of cat and mouse. The way the script has been written, is a “moral” one. You have a man, “Mr. Brooks” who is......
