Protection from Those Who Would Harm Us One of the most important missions man has ever had is to protect his family and his home from external and internal threats. The basis for this mission has not changed much from the time of living in caves to the present day two story houses. The only thing that has essentially changed is how we go about protecting ourselves from these external and internal threats. With the rapid growth of the internet, it has become essential to be cautious of the unseen threats that lurk in cyberspace. This essay is going to touch on the relevance of network security and the protection of families. One of the greatest missions placed upon all of God’s children is to protect one another. "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel" (1 Timothy 5:8). The greatest weapon God bestowed upon us to protect our families and each other was the Bible. The teachings of the Bible can be compared to a firewall in network security in that the Bible gives Christians a set of rules to live by. A firewall is network security device or host software that filters communications, usually network traffic, based on a set of predefined rules (Stewart, 2011). Each predefined rule in a firewall has a specific task, just like each story in the Bible gives God’s children a specific life lesson. The church that a Christian attends closely relates to a secure Local Area Network (LAN). A LAN is a network confined to a limited geographic distance (Stewart, 2011). You will never find a better example of a network that is confined to a limited geographic distance than you will at a church on Sunday morning. The church is the secure location that Christians can assemble and rejoice in all of God’s glory. Christians can always experience the protection of the church even when…...

Americans have always had ambivalent feelings about them. * Parties are necessary, and they perform vital functions, they are crucial institutions when it comes to organizing competition when it comes to elections, structuring the thinking of the society. If they help us distinguish various political sides, we can start identifying with them (liberal, conservative) * Ad-hoc coalitions – built in order to pass a specific bill.

Relationship Betwee the Acadeic Performance of 2nd Year Accountancy Students Those Who Are Into Relationships and Those Who Are Not

...Chapter I INTRODUCTION I. Rationale “Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do.” (Bob Marley) College life can be stressful, although it is undoubtedly one of the most memorable experiences in one’s life. It represents a critical developmental period for both late adolescents and young adults (Chickering, 1969). College students possess characteristics that changes as they progress in their years at a university. One of the changes that are happening them is the feeling of falling in love and entering into a romantic......

The author sets out to show that newly uncovered risk factors in heart disease may help doctors and patients to recognize those who might be at higher risk of dying from heart incidents, and encourage them to pay close attention to maintaining their hearts healthy. The author’s evidence was supported from a report in the British Medical Journal's Health. The research was conducted by a team of physicians from the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center One notable source from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is a physician named Dr. Elsayed Z. Soliman. The doctor’s input was instrumental in holding my attention and further solidified the article’s authentication. Dr. Elsayed Z. Soliman explained “Identifying specific predictors that separate the risk of sudden cardiac death from that of non-fatal or not immediately fatal heart attacks would be the first step to address this problem, which was the basis for our study” (Time Magazine healthland,2011) He included other useful information such as risk factors that include ethnicity, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and an ECG report.

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

...“Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost” Steph Johnson ENG 155 January 23rd, 2012 Professor Jan Ward Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost A long, white beard and curious eyes peering from underneath a largely pointed hat often leave an imprinted image in mind. A scholarly grin and archaic tobacco pipe complete the picture formed. The faint imagery of what a wizard is can only be complete when thinking of Gandalf the Grey. A magic staff and a knowledgeable mind are cause for the quest that Gandalf sets out on in the novel “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien. He can overcome adversity and aid his fellowship of 14 unlikely creatures in their attempt to regain their long-lost home. Gandalf is a venerable wizard and exemplifies a mythological hero throughout his entire written history. Gandalf always seems to be in the right place at the right time with a sort of grace about him, as if always waiting for the perfect moment. His knowledge of Middle Earth is inexplicable; he rarely misses a beat. Although he is not on a personal quest, he is quick to help those he sees fit. Several times over the fellowship found themselves in a sticky situation, and Gandalf appeared only just in time. Knowledge, a keen eye, the desire to do what is right, and also a grain of mystery are all characteristics residing in Gandalf the Grey. According to "Tolkien-Online" (2007), “Tolkien was likely heavily influenced by one of the tales found in the Elder Edda which tells of the Norse god Odin......

She grew angry, shifting in her seat banging on the table in front of her. She would not be ignored. The sky grew black and miserable since she had been sitting in that wooden seat. Her name was Mollie. She lived on the corner of town. The mysterious girl had bright almost clear blue eyes and hair that would sweep off her shoulders like the swirls at the beach. This was the third time she would claim that she saw it. She sat in the police department for she had just witnessed a crime. Mollie was a girl of just 19. She felt it in her head again. Mollie knew what was coming next. It was a flash of light. A man. A woman. She didn’t understand. But she had seen it all before. There was always something about Mollie. She saw things, heard things and felt things that people would never understand. That’s why he found her interesting. Oscar had always found her interesting. Oscar was a man of just 22.

Who Distinguishes Evil from Illness?

...Who Distinguishes Evil from Illness? By age 30 Andrea Yates had been high school class valedictorian, captain of the swim team, an officer in the National Honor Society, graduated from the University of Houston as a registered nurse, wedded and had her first child. It seemed Yates’s ambition of fulfilling her life with all her hopes and dreams could not be diverted. The Yates family was very religious and Bible reading was an enjoyed pass time within the household. Around 1990, Andrea’s internal issues came to the surface with her self-mutilation accompanied by a suicide attempt, which was followed by a short admission into a psychiatric ward. When released her mood had stabilized from a newly prescribed anti-psychotic with her life looking up. This cycle, unfortunately, insisted on continuing on three separate occasions before Andrea was diagnosed with major depressive disorder and post-partum depression. Yates was warned that if she were to become pregnant again it was highly likely the episodes of psychotic behavior would resurface. She began to grasp the magnitude of her mental health and was readily taking her medications despite the begging and pleading from her husband for another child. Nonetheless, Andrea gave in and the pregnancy of her 5th child began in 2000. In the events of her newborn’s birth, discontinuation of her anti-psychotic, and the passing of her father, Andrea’s spiral into depression was more catastrophic than ever. June 20th, 2001, her husband......

Those Foreigners Who Invest in France

...Anglais (TCB) Contraction croisée: Ces étrangers qui investissent en France. The article « Ces étrangers qui investissent en France » published in the French financial newspaper Les Echos on October 22nd 2012 highlights that more and more foreign companies invest in France. Only during 2011, 700 FDI, which represent 28000 jobs, were done. At once, it seems that France presents more drawbacks than advantages for foreign investors. In a crisis situation; we could have thought that the workforce cost, the high taxation and the weaknesses concerning globalization in France would curb the investments. However foreign companies focus on the benefits. In fact, France is the 3rd most appealing country in Europe for investors. The author states this trend by using recent cases of foreign investments such as, the American Mars, the Italian Sorin and the Japanese Toray. At first glance, each company had more interests to invest somewhere else. For all, it is first the high qualification of French employee that made them do the opposite choice. It appears that the French workforce is aware of the market tension and willing to propose alternatives in order to be more efficient. Moreover, there are key professions surrounding businesses that demand really high formation such as engineer and doctors, which they can find in France. Then, it is the quality of the infrastructure, its modernity, and the use of cutting edge technology which attract international companies. They see the......

Protecting Clients from Harm Through Ethical Codes, Informed Consent and Confidentiality

...Protecting Clients from Harm through Ethical Codes, Informed Consent and Confidentiality Cydne-Ann A. Grobri Liberty University Abstract One of the primary reasons for the creation and use of ethical codes within helping professions is to educate the professional about acceptable ethical behavior and to protect the well-being of clients. The Code of Ethics of the National Association of Social Workers (2008) illuminates that the code “sets forth values, ethical principles, and ethical standards to which professionals are to aspire and by which their actions can be judged.” (Purpose of the NASW Code of Ethics). A helping professional is required to be ethically, clinically and legally-minded to safeguard the client and/or public during all interactions within the client/counselor relationship, arguably at the point of advertisement about the availability of service. This paper will examine the actions of a community college counselor and how her neglect to utilize codes of ethics and sound judgment put her in a predicament where she may have caused harm to the participants in her group. We will also explore a practical decision making model that will demonstrate that the helping profession has to begin applying principle and virtue ethics from the outset of the client/counselor relationship opposed to the initial meeting.

Protection of Individuals from Possible Harm

...Protection of Individuals from Possible Harm and Abuse Sharon Bann Living a life that is free from harm and abuse is a fundamental right of every person and when abuse does take place it needs to be dealt with swiftly, effectively and in ways which are appropriate to the issues and where the person in need of protection stays as much in control of the decision making as is possible. Not all abuse is physical and nonphysical abuse can break a person’s spirit and shatter their confidence and self-esteem. The person must be taken seriously in all matters when disclosing abuse or when abuse is suspected. The support and therapy of those affected by abuse is the determinant long-term factor in ensuring the well-being and safety of those who have been abused and the legal procedures will ensure the immediate short term safety and security of those concerned. If nothing is done to help the person who is being abused then the it is extremely likely that the effects of the abuse will continue and potentially increase in the severity on the persons growth, development and well being. Forms of abuse that happen are Physical Abuse which is where attempted or actual physical injury to a person, and there is definite knowledge or reasonable suspicion that the injury was inflicted or knowingly not prevented. “physical abuse is the use of strength or weapons or the threat of injury to hurt or control another person” (haley et al 2010:3) Sexual Abuse which is where a...

Saving Us from Our Economic Crisis

...debt, to get from under our economic recession, we have to be brave and take a chance. However, I do not agree with the thought that green energy technology is not capable of creating long term jobs. With our government's support, and financial contribution, we are more likely to be successful in developing green technology, which will allow us to create jobs, in order to overcome our economic crisis. Investing in clean technologies is one of the best solutions for conquering our current economic crisis; it is one of the best ways to provide jobs for the American people. Large investments in clean technology by the government will result in economic growth, and new investments in clean technology will provide more work for Americans. Clean energy technologies can be renewed and will not deplete; therefore, our country will be less dependent on foreign resources. President Obama signed a “Jobs Bill” to stimulate our economy (The New York Times, 2012), and part of the Jobs Bill provides a budget to support public works projects for energy programs. Through the provisions of the bill, $16,331,278,867 was awarded to EERE (Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy project), and they created about 29,208 jobs in the quarter ending in September 30, 2011 (U.S. Department of Energy, 2011). Investing in clean technology increases economic development through private sector investments, and it creates jobs. The number of jobs in this new industry has helped recover some of those jobs......

Law Project on Protection of Women from Domestic Violence

...Abstract This commentary is on The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. This Act being one of the first in this sphere has concretely dealt with the problem of domestic violence taking into consideration all the related laws and has attempted to reduce the numerous ancillary problems generally faced by such legislations (such as impractical provisions). This legislation is well placed in the Indian context and social scenario, clearly reflective of the mindset of the Indian men. The commentary primarily looks into the provisions of this Act from the constitutional perspective – the Fundamental rights to be particular. The main aim of the commentary is to bring to light the numerous rights, most of which are constitutionally guaranteed, of women who are protected directly or indirectly by this Act. The all-encompassing nature of the legislation is elucidated among the other positive aspects of this law. The Act is thus a very vital piece of legislation from the feminist perspective of law. However one of the main and primary criticisms of the writers is that this Act intentionally or unintentionally neglects to address the issue of child abuse among male children. This persisting problem having been left without any such specific laws requires quick and immediate addressal. Introduction Domestic violence is sadly a reality in Indian society, a truism. In the Indian patriarchal setup, it became an acceptable practice to abuse women. There may be many......
