...Margaret Burnett IP English Human Trafficking Margaret Burnett AIU-Online Pro. Slotemaker Thesis: While Human trafficking is the second and fastest growing criminal industry in the world, we must find ways to stop this brutal crime. This article, “Forced Sex and labor Trafficking,” by Rebecca Clarren, talks about the investigations into human trafficking. The feminist groups plays a large part in helping with human trafficking. In 2000, Congress passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), which gives a special “T-vista”, that lets victims of sex and labor trafficking to remain temporarily in the U.S., and agree to assist in the investigation and prosecution of their traffickers, after 3 years , the attorney general will give them permanent residence. But it didn’t last long, for the Bush administration had failed to fund its provision in a way that was meaningful. There has been such a lack of traffic investigations, 639 were opened by the Department of Justice between 2001 and 2006. Yet only 360 defendants were charged and only 238 convictions. My assessment on the integrity of this article is that the information is accurate and to the point. The author is legitimate. I definitely find that it is public service information. I will use this information because it is stating why human trafficking is in a slow process of being solved. This article, The Crusade Against Sex Trafficking, by Noy Thrupkaeu, is about efforts that are trying to......

There are three major figures that led to this development they are Ivan Pavlov, John B. Watson, and B.F. Skinner. Behaviorism is developed with the order that only observations that satisfied the criteria of the scientific method were to be allowable as evidence. One of the hypotheses many behaviorists hold is that free will is an illusion. As the result of this behaviorism orders that all behavior is determined by a combination of genetic factors and the environment is either through classical or operant conditioning. Classical conditioning is a technique used in behavioral training in which a naturally occurring stimulus is paired with a response. Operant conditioning is a method of learning that occurs......

...Topics in Cultural Studies HUMA215 Unit 2 Individual Project By: Mary Mason AIU Online Language is a crucial component of everyone’s culture and values. Everyone communicates with others in different ways depending on one’s culture. There are also different key factors that can be put into play about a person communication for example, sign language. If someone cannot hear or speak than sign language becomes their form of communication. There are many various types of communication used to communicate with others. This is all based on the culture you are taught and use on an everyday basis. The communication style that one uses tells their audience many things about you without that person even speaking one single word. Take body language it can reveal so much about a person. Body language can be direct and intentional but most of it is subconscious and indirect. We use our hands when we speak and that tells others about you, like your thoughts and feelings even if that is not what you want them to know and if it is not what you’re actually talking about. Sign language is another form of communication that is used to communicate. This method of communication is nonverbal and is used mostly by deaf individuals and their close family and friends. There are actually two different types of sign language that is used. American Sign Language (ASL) and the Black American Sign Language (BASL).

...Abstract This paper explains my view on the “War on Terror” and the effects that it has had on our freedoms in America and ways we can change the “War on Terror” to gain our freedom back and maybe help secure our country in a more effective way. Introduction While we have the more freedom and rights than most countries our freedoms have definitely been effective in recent years due to the September 1, 2001; with the on terror and the efforts to make our country safer, Americans have been more willing to give up many more freedoms in exchange for this safety. My Topic is: The “War on Terror” has become a war on American Freedoms, and my Thesis is: The “War on Terror” has reduced more of our freedoms in America and has done little to catch Terrorist: we should eliminate the TSA and reevaluate all the other amendments that are being infringed upon and restore our freedom. Main Point 1: The idea behind the “War on Terror” was sparked by the events of September 11, 1999 when the World Trade Center was attack by terrorist, the idea behind it was a good one but failed in many ways. The American people are really the people that are punished the most by the “War on Terror”, we can no longer travel freely without being subjected to uncomfortable pat downs or invasive scanners by the TSA. Main Point 2: Why have flight restrictions with the TSA when our boarders are wide open? This makes no since, Americans are being restricted by flight, stopped at road blocks and checked for......

...HUMA215-1201B-14 Unit 1 IP AIU Online/ February 2012 Lucretia Randle Abstract The author gives a visual presentation of Greek and Roman cultures as they evolved using timelines for both. She discusses similarities and differences in each as pertaining to government, geography, economics, arts and philosophy. In conclusion she summarizes how these ancient cultures helped shape the modern world. These two timelines show the evolution of both empires, Greek and Roman. As you can See the Romans only surfaced toward the end of the Greek culture was beginning its decline. Greece was the beginning of civilization in that it showed a shift from a nomadic lifestyle to an agrarian and more sedentary lifestyle (Course materials, 2012). The timelines contain information found on the following websites http://courses.wcupa.edu/jones/his101/TIMELINE/T-ROMAN.HTM and http://www.ancient-greece.org/resources/timeline.html (2012). Linear writing which was begun in Greece from about the 18th century BCE and used until about the 15th century BCE is a still undeciphered writing system closely related to the ideographic writings known as hieroglyphs (thefreedictionary.com, 2012).

...Running Head: ACADEMIC HONESTY AND PLAGIARISM 1 Running Head: ACADEMIC HONESTY AND PLAGIARISM 2 People are sometimes accused of plagiarism, and some are unaware that they are plagiarizing unintentionally. Therefore, it is important for someone to learn to use the correct citations and paraphrasing to avoid unintentional plagiarism. In a 2007 article Avoiding Unintentional Plagiarism, (Foster 2007) “Avoiding plagiarism is simple, but for most of us, writing is difficult” (page #2). According to Foster, to avoid plagiarism, you must give credit whenever you use another person’s idea, opinion, theory, facts, information and quotations of another person’s spoken words (page #1). Foster is emphasizing that we must use proper citations in order to avoid plagiarism. Therefore, addressing the key elements of writing while to ensure academic honesty. For an example, one element is using the proper citation guidelines, therefore, “if you include a statement that is identical to the original work, either quote the material exactly and use quotation marks, or if you change words to better fit your style, omit the quotation marks but add the page number in the text citation” (page #1). The other element is telling the reader where the information came from, whether it’s referencing the author and article and or where you found it. By following this method, this will emphasis the originality of your work, therefore, giving the author credit. While plagiarism is...

...AIU Online September 19, 2012 Unit 2 Individual Project Latin was a large impact on the medieval ways. For very many years it was dominating the western world. The Latin language spread wherever the Roman Empire ruled. Around 1200 A.D. the empire began to fall and the Latin language began to fade. The people farthest away began to undergo the changes first and the ethical renewal began. Many individuals choose to use their vernacular language rather than Latin. In England they returned to old English with great influence from Alfred the Great. While in power he had written many books in old English; including many religious pieces. Beowulf and the Anglo Saxton Chronicles are also examples of literature written in old English. These pieces incorporated Latin characters. The English had many vernaculars during this time period. Your vernacular language depended on you social class. Lower classes tended to speak English. Traveling entertainers and many judicial situations utilized the vernacular in spoken form in France. A large percentage of the vernacular in France was romance; which stemmed from individuals jotting down stories as they were told by musicians that were passing through. Some of the oldest pieces date back to Charlemagne during the twelfth century. Germany used vernacular as early as the eighth century. Many attempts made to convert failed and was not accepted. During the 12th century many of......

This will be determined using the payback period that they plan to invest in this adventure. This will be performed by figuring out the company net present value and cash flow to determine if a project should be accepted within a three year payback period. The formula that was used to find the payback period was Payback Period = Investment (Total Cost of the Project) / Annual Cash Inflow. The formula used to calculate the net present value is as followed (1+r) ^t. Please click link to view excel spreadsheet for the assignment financial management unit 4 IP excell.xlsx. In order for a project to be accepted using the Payback rule the project according to Brooks, (2010) states that it is okay to accept a project if the payback period is less than maximum years the company is willing to accept. On that, same note if the payback period is longer than the three year that is required by the company then the project need to be rejected. For example, the payback period for this assignment is at 2.9 which mean that the project can be accepted because it is under the three years that the company requires. By the project being boarder line, I would like more clarity because if a person would round the payback period then the project would be denied. When evaluating the net present value a person has to take into considers the......
