Child Abuse
12/05/2013

The term child abuse was once as rarely heard as that of pink elephants. However rare the term has once been, it is now a term used consistently throughout the news and various other publications today. Along with the progressing decline in society's morals, has come the rapid increase of crime. One such crime is child abuse. Although child abuse is common, the act is defiling. As a result of the abuse, children who fall victim to this often need psychological treatmentand counseling. Often, the child is never the same as he or she once was before. The dictionary defines child abuse as: "the physical, or emotional, or sexual mistreatment of children" (Dictionary.com). Everyday thousands of children are the victims of this abuse. The abusers range from parents, friends, total strangers, to even day-care workers.
One case involving the abuse of children in their care is that of Frank and Ileana Fuster. The two were accused in 1984 of molesting children in their home. Frank was a 36-year-old Cuban immigrant and was married to 17-year-old Ileana who was Honduran. Frank and Ileana Fuster were residents of Country Walk, Florida where they held a home-based babysitting service (Pendergrast). The case was then known as "Country Walk" because of the city in which the two, Frank and Ileana resided. "The case began when a 3-year-old boy asked his mother to "kiss my body" when she was giving him a bath. He said, "Ileana kisses all the babies' bodies." The mother became concerned and reported the comments to the Dade County child protection authorities ("A Summary of the Frank Fuster..." NP).
Fuster seemed to be living the American dream before the accusations were presented against him. Frank and Ileana were newly weds, owned a new home in the suburbs and a landscaping business that was doing well. However, Frank was not living…...

...My experiences as a writer has had its ups and downs. I've been able to write papers but I've always needed a little bit of help to complete them. My mom has always been there when I am having problems writing papers. There have been times where I am amazing at them and knock them out like nothing. These are papers are usually short stories or something I can relate to. Then theres times where nothing comes to me and it seems like it takes forever to write them. When writing the papers one of the difficulties came from what I was writing about. In high school papers stressed me out because I knew I was going to have trouble with them. When I had to write my paper for chemistry, I worried about the length, how many citation, and how to cite it. I ask myself how does confidence impact my ability to write? On the one hand the papers I have the most confidence writing and I favor the most are ones where we have to tell a made up story or about a life event. I can write these very easily because I can remember the event very vividly or can make up a story with lots of detail. With event stories I usually just remember then write and occasionally go back to reread and fill some parts with more detail. In high school one of the first papers I had to write in my English class about a life event that changed your life. I thought to myself this is really easy to write about. I had an idea and there was no length on the paper so I didn't have to worry about how long it was. I was......

...proposition. At least one man asked why wait until the night. Another checked his mental calendar and said he couldn't today but what about tomorrow. Another who refused on account of being married apologized for having to refuse on account of being married. Meanwhile just half the men agreed to go out sometime. Extrapolating the finding to the real world means that on any given first date, the man would sooner sleep with the hostess than dine with his companion. The study seemed to confirm every stereotype anyone ever held about what men want (for the purposes of this article, what heterosexual men want). We want women. Now, please—although tonight will do. At worst tomorrow. We want them like that old Army poster with the finger pointing outward. We want you. We want you like we're all Uncle Sam, and dammit if the Germans aren't at it again. Pack up the lab equipment, please, shut off the lights, and move on to more important behavioral studies. Like finding out who drinks "lots of pulp" Tropicana. But the research did not stop there. What psychologists discovered is that underneath the simplicity, we men can be surprisingly complicated. We want women, yes, and we want sex. But we don't always want a slender frame and sharp curves. Sometimes we want a good personality. And a good romantic comedy. And to cuddle. This is laboratory science talking—not Hallmark or four martinis. And our motives for sex have diversified (as have women's)—a reality Hatfield now calls "one......

One Significant Moments of My Life

...September 2013 One Significant Moment in My life America has been always my greatest adventure and my greatest fear. Like others international students, I was very nervous about the culture, the people, and the country itself because I have never traveled to a foreign country before. How people are going to take me? Will I be ignored by people because I am from different cultures? Will I be able to make friends? Will I be able to adjust to that new life? The question that was stuck in my mind, but I didn’t have any definitive answers. This all started when I was only sixteen years old. I have been hearing that there are many events in life, which can change their life in a way that they have never expected before. I have never trusted those words until now. As for me, I think the major event that changed my life is when I moved from Bangladesh to America for better education. On a Sunday morning, I was playing outside with my cousin. Suddenly, my father calls me inside, gives me a bunch of papers and offers me to go study abroad for my higher education. Studying aboard was my childhood dream; however, before that, my parents never wanted me to leave my country. My mom is the one who always stop my father for giving me permission to study abroad. After all that , when my father finally decided to let me study abroad in the United States of America, I was very excited and I agreed right away. Coming to the United States of America was a big change in my life. I wanted......

...day that I met you Jason. You’re honestly one of a kind. I’m not sure about you, but that July 4th afternoon when I saw you, there was something about you I already loved and I knew we would get along. And then we spent the rest of the day and night together and when you put your number in my phone I was so happy that you would actually want to talk and hang out with me (because I’m kinda a weirdo). But then you kissed me, and I had never felt happiness like this before. You are right because I thought we were perfect for each other as well when I met you. And I fell so hard for you - and I tried to deny it because stuff like that only happens in the movies, but it was happening to me - all right in front of me so quick. Unfortunately I moved, and it is a very big burden to us. And it’s not just you who’s struggling with this issue Mike, and I need you to understand that. There is not an hour that can go by where you don’t pop into my head a million times. I know that this is difficult to do when we just want to be with each other cuddling and laughing about stupid things that happen in our day and talk about it. But you are what makes this easy for me. I know you love me and that you care very much for me and I can’t ask for anything more from you, because other girls would kill for that. You do the little things that mean the world to me. You bought me a cookie from Panera because you know they’re my favorite, and before you left my apartment you made an “I...

...“Hoodwinked” Watching the Documentary film “Hoodwinked,” I realized why being a black male was so hard in America. Growing up as a child I was always taught as to what was the right things to do in my society were, and how to stay out of trouble. But to me I always felt as there was some type of restrictions on life as to what I could and could not do. I mean I saw other kids my age and color out having a ball, living their lives without a care in the world. I even seen some that were once my friends get carried away in a police car. Hoodwinked the documentary film has brightened my horizon as to why some of these things has happened and why I am not just another 1 out of 3 in society. Janks Morton is a brilliant Black man and more people should look up to him as how he is trying to educate the people of color about themselves, especially the young and old black males. In this documentary he has went abound to the black community discussing the facts as to why the things that are happening are happening. It is not because they were raised wrong or simply because they are black, but because of the thoughts being put into each person’s mind. One of the most damaging forces tearing at young black people in America today is the popular culture's image of what an "authentic" black person is supposed to look like and how that person is supposed to act.   When asking the question “Are there more black males in jail or in college?” our own people......

Excerpt of One My Book Report

...An author of the popular and successful series of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Rick Riordan completely blew me away with his third and latest installment in the Heroes of Olympus series - The Mark of Athena. The book was published last October 2, 2012 and garnered distinguished awards namely #1 New York Times Bestseller, #1 Indie Bestseller, #1 USA Today Bestseller and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller. The novel continues where the Son of Neptune left off. The story is an unforgettable journey from across United States and Mediterranean Sea to Rome, where unexpected dangers, unbelievable discoveries and baffling problems await. Climb aboard the Argo II if you dare to unravel the great mystery of a thousand year old dispute between Greeks and Romans. The author realized how many Greek and Roman Myths he had left untouched in the first series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. He began to write the second series entitled Heroes of Olympus to compensate the demands of his avid fans. He used his experiences for his storyline from Warcraft and Scion that he and his children had played. After creating the storyline, Riordan created new characters such as Jason, Piper, Leo, Hazel and Frank. Fortunately, the old characters such as Percy and Annabeth are still part of the main protagonists in the new story. Unlike the first series which uses first-person narration of Percy’s point of view, the second series is told in third-person and narrated by different demigods in every......

...every week. When I go I spend about 15minutes running or riding a bike (mostly riding a bike), and the rest of the time working out with weight. I keep my weight training to high reps and low weight, but even so I do not believe that I will see big results in my weight unless I start to run. Studies have shown that a healthy amount of running in a person’s life can help with weight loss and help prevent heart related diseases. Go on hikes, one thing that I love is nature. Taking a hike in the woods once or twice a week would be a great way to burn some fat off. I know that hiking is not a normal habit to practice, but my thought is that developing actives that are outside of my house, will push me not to set around all the time. Eating healthier, is one of the best ways to lose weight, plus healthier food will give you more energy to do other activities. I know people that work out all the time, and they chose not to eat right, because of this they do not lose the weight they are trying to lose. Most weight lose comes mostly from the food you put in your body to digest. The healthier the food is the easier it is for your body to digest. Depending on the amount of sodas you drink soda can have a big impact on the amount of weight one could lose by not drinking them at all. I drink about two sodas a day and sometimes more. At one time I did not drink sodas at all. Sodas have very little to no o nutritional values in them. Sodas are high in calories and sugars that can slow......

I was so ecstatic when I heard that we would be going on a ski trip in next week. I had never been to any ski mountain nor had I ever seen any before. I went to a sports equipment store almost immediately and bought skies, boots, poles and a whole outfit. I was very excited about the trip and wished it could come earlier. It was a very long night the day before my ski trip. I was checking over and over again to see if everything was in the right place because I wanted to be well prepared for this trip. ......

One Thing That Changed My Life

... The Great Greek philosopher Socrates said -“Know Thyself”. According to Socrates one could not know anything without knowing oneself. This may be an old greek aphorism ,but its relevance is eternal. In a sense, we are what we are because we don’t know who we are. However life’s book is hard to understand. Its like the eyelashes, they are so close to you that you can’t see them. But there is one way of seeing them, by looking in the mirror. Similarly in order to know oneself we need to sit down in a quiet corner, in solitude, mentally place a mirror before our self. A little bit of introspection like this, done time and again, can lead us a long way on the road to self discovery. Although I have just started my journey of self discovery, probably with my own colored glasses, this is my effort to share my journey so forth with you. As per the UN Report India has the largest youth population of 356 million ,10-24 year olds. In this mammoth population, it is not unusual to meet a youngster like me, in late teens, still confused about my career choice, my love choices. Unsure about my dreams and as to what I want from life. I read in biology that every individual possesses their own unique DNA sequence or genes, like fingerprints. This give them a unique identity. However apart from my biological uniqueness in this teeming population there are people around me –my family and friends –who think I am very special. So for reasons still unknown to me these people around me remind me...

And one of them is Malala Yousafzai. Everything is right in front of us, yet we fail to understand!! But there is this God, whom one have never seen and there they walk into a black hole in search of what is within.Is this what is called "Search that never ends"??!!Forgive me, If I was rude.. There they lay comfortably with their blanket of Religion,Race and so on, wrapped around them so tight.....that it has blinded their eyes!! "If you shoot, I die in a minute.

...products that are focused around the tellers. Describe the types of practices a human resource professional should recommend for Mountain Bank with respect to its tellers, based on the universalistic approach and commitment strategy. First, lets define universalistic approach and commitment strategy. Universalistic approach can be defined as “ a human resource perspective that seeks to identify methods of managing people that are effective for all organizations” (p.52). Commitment strategy is “a human resource bundle that builds strong attachment to the organization and emphasizes worker empowerment” (p.52). Next, there are numerous practices that a human resource professional should recommend for Mountain Bank with respect to its tellers. One practice is offering the tellers more rewards for their performance being that they are a key component to the success of the company. These rewards can be in terms of compensation or simply company acknowledgement, which allows the employee to feel valued within the company. Another practice that could be useful for the tellers is keeping the area of communication very open and honest between the tellers and management. Since tellers are a major aspect to the company, they should be able to freely express any concerns and/or questions they have about their position and how it can improve the overall company. There must also be detailed training and understanding amongst employees and management about what is expected, how to......

...elections, we choose to vote the kind of people who are well known and very popular even though we are not aware if they are really ready to serve and make a change in our government system. Instead of selecting persons who are very much deserving of leading the people and persons who are capable of making or implementing bills that we opt for, public offices are now being the monopoly of action stars, super stars, pop idols or generally celebrities. Second idea of the author upon answering the question of about why Filipinos keep on electing unworthy leaders is “those who know better and should be criticizing the system, often become its cynical operators.” I also agree with the PDI about his second idea. It is that these persons who can be one of the best leaders we could have if ever they had been straight in their ways and right with their decisions; but worse comes worst, they went with the flow and made themselves naive with the things other politics do. They become hired as assistants of dim-witted officers. I am quite sure until now that they are still fighting over their own guilt feeling, trying to ease their conscience by believing that at least they could serve as positive influences to these officials. Last thought that I would like to expand from the article is “we remained fixated on the redemptive power of charismatic leaders to secure our future. In contrast, we have so little faith in ordinary people’s capacity to create the nation by their sustained......
