Homelessness In the U.S. there seems to be a lot of homeless people. Approximately 3.5 million people are likely to experience homelessness in any given year(www.nlchp.org). There are many reasons why people become homeless which are, domestic violence, addiction disorders, lack of jobs, mental and medical health issues, lack of education, and insurance. Some of these problems spiral out of control resulting in the inability to provide for oneself or ones family. In most cases homelessness is rarely caused by one factor but it can happen. Fifty percent of the cities surveyed by the U.S. Conference of Mayors identified domestic violence as a primary cause of homelessness. Approximately sixty three percent of homeless women have experienced domestic violence in their lives (National Coalition for the Homeless).
Women generally are scared to ask for help for the fear of the one causing their violence may take it out on the one that helps her so therefore women tend to fend for themselves. Some women think it will ruin their pride to ask for help so they stay until the violence gets so bad they can’t take it anymore. So they choose to be homeless verses asking friends and family for help. Addiction and substance abuse isn’t generally a cause of its own in homelessness but it does happen that way. Most people that have an addiction or substance abuse problem are already homeless but for some people it is a reason for becoming homeless. Someone who has a severe addiction will spend their last dollar to get whatever it is they are addicted to. In the most severe case of some addicts don’t care about bills being paid or their family being provided for they are just worried about getting a fix. They lose interest in going to work or can’t because they are messed up on drugs and end up losing their…...

...This coming semester in the spring of 2012 will ultimately be my 5th semester I have spent taking courses at TCC. My degree plan is far from anything but normal, but I am aware of what I need to take, and I have been planning it in a manor that seems to work for me. I am specifically attending for an AAS in Information Systems Technology. This is a field in which I have already been working in for nearly 12 years. I guess I am good at doing things backwards. There are people in this world who are fortunate enough that they made it through high school and had financial backing, or the desire to attend 4 years of college and they make it through in a breeze. I am not one of those people. I’m not sure if I just like to make things as hard for myself as I possibly can, but I would not trade one experience I have ever had for anything different. College is something I have been doing as I can, and as tough as it is sometimes I seem to be making it just fine the unorthodox way. The school formula I have kind of developed for myself has been the same for 2 semesters and most likely will be until I graduate at the end of the spring semester in 2013. Every semester I will sign up for 3 classes, two lectures one online or hybrid class. One particular reason I can’t say exactly which classes they will be is because of availability. I am taking some technical classes at the ACT building in Virginia Beach that unfortunately not every class is offered every semester in a......

Black gunpowder was not invented till the end of the ninth century and was first used to make fireworks, and later the lighting of fireworks became a Chinese tradition to celebrate festivals. The gunpowder was used in weapons at the end of the 10th Century, when firearms such as exploding arrows heads, flintlock rifles and cannon became available on a large scale. During the 18th century when Western powers invaded China, the Chinese troops were still using flintlock rifles and cannons. At the end of the 14th century a Chinese named Wan Hu fitted a chair with 47 prototype self-made rockets and held a large kite in his hands. His plan was to fly into space and then float back down to the Earth using the kite. The rockets ended up exploding and killing Wan Hu but in his honor In the 1970s, the International Astronomical Union named a lunar crater......

...Jacob Klemp Instructor Sarah Rose English 111: Essay 1 Sept. 23rd, 2013 How To Keep A Long Distance Relationship Healthy Its time to go to college: Brittney and Jacob have been good friends and talking for quite some time now. Unlike most people, Jacob decides to ask Brittney to be his girlfriend. The couple talks about how a long distance relationship is going to be hard since they are going away to different schools 5 hours a part from each other. Many people believe that there is no such thing as keeping a long distance relationship healthy due to partners not seeing, touching, hugging, kissing, doing activities with them, etc. Couples can become stressed out at the fact that things aren’t going to be the same as they used to. However, there are a number of steps that can be used by Jacob and Brittney to keep their long distance relationship healthy and enjoy the new experiences they want to enjoy in college. Some may say that a long distance relationship is impossible so they don’t get themselves involved. People that are experiencing a long distance relationship get worried that their partner will cheat on them or possibly lose interest. Jacob tends to worry a lot about what his girlfriend is doing at times and whom she is with. This is where trust comes into play. A couple should be able to trust each other in general. An article on www.thefrisky.com states, “so if you want your long-distance relationship to survive, you need to learn to fully trust each other......

...short form of the IPIP-NEO, correlations range from 0.70 to 0.82 (0.85 to 0.92 when corrected for unreliability) with the corresponding NEO PI-R factors (Goldberg, 2001). However, it has been suggested that even such high correlations do not imply that the different versions are truly equivalent (Costa & McCrae, 1999). 3. The IPIP Big-Five factor markers The IPIP contains not only versions of proprietary scales, but also a number of items known collectively as the Big-Five factor markers (Goldberg, 2001). The starting point for the creation A.J. Gow et al. / Personality and Individual Differences 39 (2005) 317–329 319 of these items was GoldbergÕs (1992) 100 unipolar Big-Five factor markers (derived from early lexical studies in English). These trait-descriptive adjectives had been used in a number of studies (Goldberg, 1992) and suggested 5 broad factors (very similar to those recovered from questionnaire studies), namely Extraversion (or Surgency), Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Emotional Stability (often regarded as the opposite pole of Neuroticism) and Intellect (or Imagination). The adjective markers were related to the NEO-PI (an earlier version of the NEO PI-R), and correlations between corresponding scales ranged from around 0.46 to 0.69 (Goldberg, 1992). However, Goldberg (1999) proposed that these adjectives might be improved upon to create questionnaire items that would provide more contextual information than single words, but still be more succinct......

...Assignment 1: Essay HUM 111: World Cultures I Assignment 1: Mummy’s Curse The image of the curse of the mummy instantly conjures up elaborate stories and fantastic discoveries made upon entry into the tomb of King Tutankhamen (King Tut). According to Sayre (2012) “King Tuts tomb was the only tomb discovered that was not destroyed and looted by grave robbers.” In 1922, Howard Carter (a renowned excavator) and his benefactor, the Fifth Earl of Carnarvon, were the first to enter the tomb. According to Luckhurst (2010), the tomb had been uncovered in Carter’s last-chance season of digging in the Valley of the Kings. No new tomb had been discovered for over a decade. In November 1922, they entered the antechamber and the news swept the world. In February 1923, they entered the burial chamber. A sequence of calamitous episodes occurred affecting the men who first entered the tomb. Some of the men became sick and some died. Also, some of their pets died. Some people were using these events to make claims that there was a curse associated with the opening of the tomb. According to Rompalske (2000), the story centered on Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter, and the hardships they suffered. The first conclusion is an inference that has to do with stories regarding the “curse”. At the opening of the tomb of King Tut, a clay tablet was unearthed in the antechamber, with a warning to keep out of the tomb or else experience a horrible death. According to......

In an access database structure there are various columns or fields for each attribute. Integrity and integrity constraint Data Integrity is very important in database operations in particular and Data Warehousing. Because Data Integrity ensured that data is of high quality, correct, consistent and accessible, in is important to follow rules governing Data Integrity. Redundancy Redundancy is the duplication of data or the storing of the same data in more than one place. Data independence Data independence is a property that lets you change the structure of a database without requiring you to change the programs that access the database; examples of these programs are the forms you use to interact with the database and the reports that provide information from the database. Without data independence, a great deal of effort can be expended in changing programs to match the new database structure. What is the relationship between an entity and an attribute? An entity is a person, place, object, event, or idea for which you want to store and process data. The entities of interest to Premiere Products, for example, are sales reps, customers, orders, and parts. An attribute is a characteristic or property of an entity.

Present a relevant objection(s) and a response to the objection. DEFINITIONS: Affirmative action is defined as: “… programs required by federal statutes and regulations to remedy discriminatory practices in hiring minority group members; i.e. positive steps designed to eliminate existing and continuing discrimination, to remedy lingering effects of past discrimination, and to create systems and procedures to prevent future discrimination; commonly based on population percentages of minority groups in a particular area. Factors considered are race, color, sex, creed, and age. National Labor Relations Board v. Fansteel Metallurgical Corporation, 306 U.S. 240” (Black, 1990, p. 59). An additional definition can be found in the widely accepted Random House law dictionary: “… any step by a public or private employer, school, institution, or program, beyond the mere cessation of intentional discrimination, to promote diversity, provide opportunities, and alleviate the effects of past discrimination on the basis of race, sex, national origin or disability” (James, 2000, p. 20).

Richard 111

...HSC Advanced English, Module A: Richard III and Looking For Richard, Essay Connections of commonality and dissimilarity may be drawn between a multiplicity of texts through an appreciation of the values and attitudes with which they were composed. Accordingly, the values and attitudes of the individual being may be defined as an acute blend of externally induced, or contextual and internally triggered, or inherent factors. Cultural, historical, political, religious and social influences, dictated by the nature of one’s surroundings, imprint a variable pattern of values and attitudes upon the individual. Thus any deviation in any such factor may instigate an alteration of the contextual component of one’s perspective. By contrast, the psychological fundamentals of humanity are sturdy and whilst they partake in the definition of the values and attitudes of the individual, they are unwavering. Shakespeare’s historical play ‘Richard III’ and Pacino’s docudrama ‘Looking for Richard’ confirm such theory through an exploration of the contextual and inherent. A scrutiny of the contradictory forces of humanism and determinism and the function of women as demonstrated by both texts imparts an incongruity of context. Difference is thus conveyed. Conversely, an acknowledgement of the strength of conscience common to both texts suggests an inherent influence. Thus it is through inspection of the prescribed texts that one may distinguish the degree to which the texts converge on......

...“English should not become official” America is a country filled with many people with different language trying to get along. We live in a society made up and founded by immigrants. Looking at our society today, English shouldn’t become the official language of the U.S because, first of all it is unfair for others living here who have English as a second language or can speak little English. Second of all, it will limit certain people when it comes to finding a job because not everybody is capable of speaking, reading, or writing the English language correctly. Finally, it violates the terms our country was built on. If English becomes the official language of the U.S, people with English as a second language or with little English are put at a disadvantage. It’s a fact that our society is largely made of immigrants. Moreover, children who will be born in the U.S won’t be able to learn their parent’s native language. So it wouldn’t make any sense from the government to limit them because the government will need bilingual people. We take pride in our diversity, so when we limit our diversity, we put people here at a disadvantage. Additionally, there are certain people who don’t dedicate themselves to learn the English language. The reason is because they get employed by businesses that practice the same language. For instance, lots of Spanish immigrants only get to work in the Spanish community. Spanish is very much used in the United States, because they don’t develop......
