Summary of the article including citations
In the article Generation Matters it talks about the different characteristics and skills that each of the generations, traditionalists, baby boomers, generation X, and generation Y, have and their preferences for communication. Traditionalists were born in the years 1927-1945, people from this generation tend to prefer face-to-face communication or written memos and “they value hard work and thrift, are loyal employees and many have worked for a single firm over their entire career” (p. 52) (Generation Matters, 2015). Baby Boomers were born in the years 1946-1964, people from this generation tend to communicate through meetings, emails, and over the phone. Baby boomers “tend to live for their jobs and will jump in whenever and wherever needed” (p. 52) (Generation Matters, 2015), this is due to their dedication to their job and wanting to be involved. Generation X were born in the years 1965-1980, many from this generation communicate in an immediate and direct manner and prefer to communicate through emails, texts, or on their cellphones. People from generation X “are ambitious and hard working but mostly as individuals or entrepreneurs” (p. 52) (Generation Matters, 2015), this may be due to their need to be independent. Generation Y was born in the years 1980-early 2000s, people in this generation prefer to communicate through texts, tweets, Facebook, FaceTime, and Instagram. With this generation having confident personalities many “see work as an entitlement, rather than the other way around, and are constantly evaluating whether their current employment provides what they want”…

Surveillance

Since the terrorist events occurring on September 11, 2001, policing strategies have implemented new approaches and newly available technologies. These technological advancements have allowed large cities to create expansive networks of video surveillance, redefining the observational techniques and patrolling methods of the previous decades. Although the United States utilizes a system of federalism, dividing legal authorities at the state and national levels, the increase of interconnected threats has unified resources and efforts of protection. In response to terrorist threats and international drug trafficking, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has created supportive funding and legal interpretations, allowing state and local police strategies to better serve localized efforts in return for fulfilling the needs of national protection. In order to implement more elaborate structures of surveillance, definitions of civil liberties were challenged and in need of redefining.
The history of civil rights and police surveillance has always been linked to the interpretation of the fourth amendment of the constitution. The rights of individuals are being challenged in ways involving privacy and the usage of surveillance obtained evidence within the court system. One of these imposed threats of civil rights involves the questionable justification of police video surveillance on any or all individuals without warrant, probable cause, or even reasonable suspicion. The 1967 ‘expectation of privacy’ doctrine, as determined by the US Supreme Court case Katz v. United States, protected citizens from warrantless government intrusion. The ‘exclusionary rule’ allows for the court rejection of illegally obtained police evidence (Bloss W. P., 2009). Oppositional groups of police video surveillance, such as the American Civil Liberties Union, argue that the surveillance methods used by the police allow for the illegal practice of observing law abiding citizens,…

Gold Standard

Gold StandardReason For Selection
As a child, I never understood why gold was so expensive. It was nice, shiny and heavy but I was never a fan. I rather buy silver or platinum jewelry. After growing up and hearing the term gold standard, I interpreted it as being the best. Now that I’ve read the textbook, it makes me wonder why anyone would want to bring it back. Yes, the gold standard was great back in history but now it is a whole different economy. Key Term Explanation
Gold was a source of money from the beginning of time. When governments started printing money, it was convertible to a predetermined amount of gold. The gold standard regulated the quantity and growth rate of a nation’s money supply. It began in the 1880s. From the 1880 to 1914, countries’ currencies were fixed on gold. The gold standard is not currently used by any government with Britain stopping in 1931 and the United States in 1971. The gold standard was replaced by fiat money. The price of gold is no longer used as a standard, but the price of gold is determined by the demand for the metal. Gold is a major financial asset for countries and central banks. Major Article Summary
Four years ago, the Republican Party called for the establishment of a committee to investigate possible ways to set a fixed value for the dollar. In a recent debate, Senator and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz said, “The Federal Reserve should focus on sound money and monetary stability, ideally tie to gold.” Senator Rand Paul supports creating a commission to study whether the dollar needs to be linked to a hard asset like gold. Because of low interest rates and an unparalleled bond buying program, there is some worry but belief that the gold standard is the cure. One reason is because gold holds its value over long stretches of time. However, the problem is that countries need to hold onto ever increasing amounts of gold in order to keep up with demand. Limiting the amount of…

CULTURAL FORMULATION

Introduction
Culture is a very significant aspect of human existence in today’s day to day interaction with different people. Culture, therefore, is an accumulative deposit of beliefs, values, religion, knowledge, and attitude that has been acquired by a certain group of people in the course of their interaction. The manner in which an individual handles and presents issues are attributed to an individual cultural origin.
The Cultural formulation is the systematic review of an individual’s cultural experience and background that influences how an individual’s conduct in a particular situation (Smart & Smart, 1997). The Cultural formulation includes the cultural identity of a person and how a person’s culture assist in the individual behavior when in an environment which is functioning differently from the individual’s culture.
It is affirmative that the position that ideas, beliefs and meaning that people learn as members of society has a great impact on the nature of a human being hence making culture important. As much as it is said that people are what they learn, proper attitude of an informed and sophisticated individual, cannot be of that notion.
This paper examines the case study of a video by Thomas A. Parham and Asisa Ajamu where a young African American man Adisa who is in a graduate school but feel culturally misplaced because he is learning with the white people. The sole purpose of this paper is to determine how culture affects one’s personality and how individuals can be able to acclimatize in different cultural environments. With this, individuals will be able to accept different cultural diversities that exist so to have a peaceful existence.
Elements of a Cultural Formulation
According to (Steward, Wright, Jackson, & Jo, 1998) Cultural formulation is composed of some components one of them is personality dynamics. The personality of an…

Sorry not what I have

In the United States Army, military bearing is the root in which every service member practices in order to carry out good discipline and ethics throughout ones military careers. The Eleven General Orders of a Sentry, The Articles of the UCMJ, as well as our own Sailors Creed illustrates how a military service member should conduct himself or herself on a daily basis, on and off duty. Dependability is a major aspect of military bearing. Without dependability, one can neither perform properly in the work space nor be depended upon by their coworkers, or chain of command to carry out their military duties adequately. A military member is required to be punctual, and reliable. Lack of this in a service member not only hinders the mission of the command but of the entire army. Honor, Courage, and Commitment, are army core values that are instilled in each personnel’s life the instant that the oath of enlistment is pledged. Honor is the integrity that one takes upon oneself in order to responsibly carry out the orders of the officers appointed over the service member. Courage is the ability to stand up for ones beliefs and ethics that the army has instilled in them. Commitment is the dedication that is illustrated in the performance of each and every individual carrying out their orders. Without one of these army core values, the others do not exist. These core values form the cornerstone of military bearing. As services members, military bearing is a vast assortment of rules and ethics that govern our every day life. For instance, a clean and presentable uniform, knowing ones facing movements, how to respectively address a senior officer, as well as being prompt for either General Quarters, quarters, or watch. Keeping a clean uniform shows to other members the pride that you take in the obligations you hold in serving your country. Personnel inspections as well as award ceremonies demonstrate to ones chain of command how the effectiveness of this military bearing…

Paper

A Drinking Society In most societies; whether it be for religious or social purposes, people drink. This is no different in America, but its usage has varied in American history. This is due to an alcohol prohibition, war and changing the drinking age to 21 years old. I am sure of my hypothesis because the ngram for *_ADJ drinking, corresponds to my reasoning.
In 1920, The United States banned the sale, production and transportation of alcoholic drinks. This dramatic change lowered the number of people who were drinking in public places, simply because it was illegal to do so. This changed once the prohibition had been abolished in 1933. The ngram for “public drinking” coveys just as previously stated. At around the 1920s, the data for “public drinking” illustrated a decrease and then around 1933, when the abolishment occurred, there is an increase in the data. Furthermore, social drinking demonstrated a fairly dramatic increase after the end of prohibition. This is also a result of alcohol becoming tolerated again. This goes to further illustrate the prohibition’s effect on drinking in America.
During war, it is often hard to remain calm. Because of this, it is no surprise that from World War 2 through the Cold War, that excessive, heavy and social drinking increased. The reason for the increase is that the soldiers that were away at war, probably returned with PTSD and what better way to ease one’s nerves than with some alcohol. Furthermore, there were people at home who feared the world was going to end, so they were more inclined to drink. This can all be observed in the same Ngram that is previously mentioned (*_ADJ drinking). On this graph there is a solid increase in heavy and excessive drinking around when the United States entered World War 2, which didn’t decrease until around the end of the Cold War.
When the federal government decided to rise the drinking age from 18 to 21 years old, in 1984, it too had an effect on American society’s…
