I found the chapter 20 There is No God but Allah, and Muhammad is His Prophet very interesting to read. I’ve had previous knowledge about the Islamic Religion and the Arab people past of advances of mathematics in history when I was deployed to Kuwait but this chapter was shortly informative overall about the religion and past accomplishments on the Arab people. Although I don’t agree with the teachings of Muhammad I found the chapter interesting to read about the history of the birth of the Islam and the development of chemistry and algebra.
As a Christian myself I believe that there is only one God and that Jesus is the child of God. That being said I don’t believe in the prophet Muhammad who was said to have come to teach the way of the Lord. I also I don’t agree on Muhammad’s teaching instructing that people should pray five times a day facing the holy city Mecca. In the Bible it is said that we as Christians should pray to God at all times continuously communicating to him. The last topic I do not agree with is having to take a pilgrimage traveling to the holy city Mecca once a year. In the Bible it tells us that when Jesus died on the Cross he created an open communication between God and us in which we don’t have to go to a certain place or have a certain person to be able to have communication with the Lord or to talk to Him and feel His presence we are able to do this ourselves. Although I do not agree with the teachings of Islam taught by Muhammad I did find the part of the chapter where they discussed the advancements on the Arabs ability to turn Roman numbers into our current number system we use today and also came up with words such as Algebra and Chemistry and also there beauty they brought to their palaces and mosques with intricate and interlacing patterns which developed to be called arabesques. We gained many things from the Arab people in the…...

...outcome of the research, this is called the observer effect. The researcher might be influenced by the participants or his or her own experiences, this is called observer bias. Non participant observations are observed at distance and so the observer has to build a result based on his or her own perception of the observation which could make the results inaccurate. A structured observation might affect the participants due to the controlled environment, and by the fact that they are being watched which means it lacks ecological validity, as it could be argued that a controlled situation is not a real life situation. The observer might be bias due to their own experiences. Could be costly to set up. The unstructured observation is only used as a first step. The naturalistic study could be a breach of confidentiality as the observed, do not know they are being watched and so permission for the observation has not been given.

...bond market and has driven interest rates on ten-year notes above 7%. In an effort to appease investors, Italy has taken a number of proactive steps to reel in its growing debt. Some of these measures were necessary; like increasing the age in which public employees receive their pension. Others were merely window dressing to convince investors that it was serious about fixing its debt problems. These actions grew increasing necessary as Italy came closer to needing to refinance its debt. Over the next year, Italy will be faced with maturing debt of $723 billion. It would cause tremendous strain on the country if they had to refinance this debt at current interest rates. If they were forced to refinance at the current rates it could cause a 1-2% drag on its overall GDP. Luckily, the ECB has realized that it needs to buy bonds in countries where the general public is unwilling to do so. Italy is currently one of those countries. ...

It’s only me. Two ways to understand it. It can mean that he is lonely, and it can also mean the way they talk about it in the story that’s it is only him that has those problems. Problems like bully, drugs, bad childhood and neglect from his parents. He might think it is only him who got those problems but it isn’t. 2. First we hear about an 11-year old boy that threatened to kill the girl he liked and the boy who kissed her which is jealousy. Jealousy is very often the reason for murder. He told the police that he was just joking. Another 11-year old threatened to shoot his teachers tape player, and then the teacher. He didn’t like the music. Elizabeth Bush, who wanted to become a human rights activist or a nun, shot the head-cheerleader in the cafeteria. She did it to prove the other that she could do it. 3. One reason could be that the parents think that their children wouldn’t do such a horrible thing. The parents often choose to overlook the problems, and look the other way. The parents often don’t know when the children got problems. The school doesn’t notify the parents if anything is wrong. ...

It is also characterized by severe impulsivity. As with other personality disorders, BPD usually begins by early adulthood. Similarly, to the prevalence of schizophrenia in the population, BPD is thought to affect about 1% of the population and 15% of patients in psychiatric hospitals. In contrast to how often women seek treatment for schizophrenia, women tend to seek treatment for BPD at a rate much higher than men, so the estimates on how many men suffer from this disorder may be lower than the actual numbers. Borderline Personality Disorder Symptoms and Signs Symptoms of BPD are outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition, Text Revision (DSM) and include * desperate attempts to prevent real or imagined abandonment; * unstable and intense relationships with others that alternate between seeing the other person as flawless and as worthless; * highly unstable self-image; * potentially self-damaging...

Abstinence-Only

...English 1303 Abstinence-only: Does it work? Statistics show that “70 percent of US teens have engaged in oral sex…and more than 45 percent have had intercourse at least once.” Today’s future generation has been involved in sexual activities more than ever. The question is, do they know what they are getting themselves into? With the deliberation on what should be taught in a sex education class, many wonder if the abstinence-only programs are working to lower the number of teens that participate in these activities? Paul Weyrich’s article “Abstinence Education Works” and Arthur Caplan’s article “Abstinence-Only Sex Ed Defies Common Sense: Education Policy Spreads Ignorance, Sends Confusing Messages to Teens” both have different viewpoints on abstinence-only sex education. Weyrich claims that having abstinence-only education programs can prevent teen pregnancies and transmissions of sexually transmitted diseases. Research from Texas A&M, show that sex education classes that teach abstinence have significantly lowered sexual activity rates among teens. Studies show that abstinence programs are very beneficial and many ways towards teenagers. The programs teach teens to be safe, prepared, and mature about sex; as well prepare them for when they get married and have sex in the future. Weyrich finishes off strong by restating his main point: the best prevention against STDs and unplanned pregnancies is not having sex before marriage. According to Caplan, STD’s are......

Only the Lonely

...Only the Lonely Frankenstein is Mary Shelley's most notable piece of work, written when she was only eighteen years old. The novel explores the theme of loneliness and rejection. The monster created by Victor Frankenstein is rejected by human society because of his appearance. Mary Shelley explores the feelings of how the creature is utterly ignored and abused by the society. I believe the novel became a reflection of the inner state of Mary Shelly. It reflects sufferings and loses that occurred in the own authors life. As notes Anthony Badalamenti in his article Why did Mary Shelley Write Frankenstein: “She was also the product of her own past, suffering three successive losses in her early life that reveal why themes of being alone and abandoned run through the novel”(Badalamenti, 431). All these sad events and constant feeling of loneliness helped Mary to create a very deep and powerful character. Victor does not think about possible results of his experiments. He does not think what will happen when he finally succeeds and created a living creature. He is severely punished by his attitude when the creature created by him turns into a monster. Shelley illustrates that the guilt for murders can not be put only on Frankenstein's creation. Society and social norms finally result in the feeling of loneliness and estrangement. “The monster complains that his maker and mankind are moving his nature from goodness and benevolence to wrath and violence. He attempts the company of...

There are such several factors that affect in their school performance. There are some programs on how to control and manage peer pressure. People grow older; people may be faced with some challenge decision. Some don’t have a clear right or wrong answer. Other decisions involve serious moral questions. Making decisions on own is hard enough, but when other people get involved and try to make pressure the people one way or another it can be even harder. People who are teenagers and adolescence, like classmates, are called peers. When they try to influence how the act, to get to do something, it’s called peer pressure. It’s something everyone has to deal with, even adults. Maybe others want to do it, and just don’t have to courage to do it and friends talk them into it. Peer pressure can be broken down into two areas, good peer pressure and bad peer pressure. Peer pressure was always thinking of it in bad terms. In terms of pressuring others into, smoking, do illegal drugs, drink alcohol, have promiscuous sex, engage in criminal and quasi-criminal, behavior, do violence, join gangs, and so on.

The Only One

...In the Bible, Christ’s resurrection is explored after his death, leading into resurrection. Events that lead to his demise lead to his return in the real world, bringing a new and insightful light to the story. The significance of Christ being able to self-resurrect back into the world is because he’s the only one to ever do it, and do it successfully, whereas other Gods don’t have the ability to do so. To further explain, according to the Bible, Christ is the only deity but self identified man to essentially do this. Considering his abilities is through God, and God wanted reveal to man proof of his power through Jesus, without directly showing it to them like many times prior, by raising Jesus from the dead. To emphasize this, “because He has appointed a day on which, He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” Christ had mentioned several times that his death and resurrection would be the one thing to give to the sinful and unbelieving world God made for them. Such as, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Further explaining that he knew he would be able to come back with ease. Foreknowing one’s own death is common in most......

English Only

...on the language I am using the most to get me through the day. Were as if I were required to speak and use French only I would be forced to become more familiar with French ultimately using it fluently. This is the point of many state debates about English-only. Many states have educated students from different countries with a bilingual approach for many years. They have been taught in their native language for a majority of their school day and have been learning English as a second language. How can we expect students to learn a language that they are not required to use or understand for the majority of their school day? California is one of a few states that have passed a law to provide education to immigrate students in English only. “Proposition 227 was a California ballot proposition passed in the June 2, 1998 ballot” (Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia 2011). It ended bilingual education programs in the state and replaced them with the Structured English Immersion model. This provided students with a one-year program in English and then place the students back in main stream education and provide them the resources to then catch up in other academic areas. With typical bilingual education a student may be separated from their peers for several years while learning English which encourages segregation in schools. Were proposition 227 suggest students only be separated from their peers for one year while learning English this places them back with their peers......

What if every time you go for, is just like you’re a wind and crap to that person?
