Ethics in Accounting

15 Dec 2017

The word “account” is at the root of the words accountable, accountant, and accounting. Common to all these words is the idea of accurate and responsible reporting and/or recording. This paper will regretfully show that while the word “account” certainly carries weight insofar as lending an impression of truth, accuracy, and objectivity, in our society today, the impression is increasingly found to be false. Highlighted and discussed will be the fields which seem to be particularly vulnerable to misleading or outright false financial reporting:

Enron – Contribution, Collapse, Bankruptcy

13 Dec 2017

SUMMARY: Enron is quickly becoming a 21st century equivalent of the 1950’s game show scandals that inspired the film Quiz Show. Both events involved a very large organization, an apparently active conspiracy to deceive the public and employees, and touches a very broad section of our political and economic power structure. Enron had emerged from the smoke and mirrors associated with all scandals as a clearly unfathomable organization – Enron is an enigma. Before the bankruptcy, Enron enjoyed an enormously successful history of brokering energy to and from various points on the compass – from virtually blackmailing California during that state’s energy crisis of the summer of 2000, to the general failure to meet energy contracts throughout the county. Enron’s excesses, mismanagement, shady accounting, questionable ethics, and its octopus-like hold on seemingly half of all the congressional politicians in Washington combine to lend credence to conspiracy theorists who assert that there are commercial forces at work behind governmental decisions that supercede concerns for the American citizenry. Like any scandalized person or organization, prior to exposure, everyone is ecstatic to be in bed together, but post-exposure, all the partners jump out of bed faster than roaches under a sun-lamp. Enron collapsed because it was a giant built upon a balsa wood foundation. It is the purpose of this paper to examine the factors involved in the collapse of Enron.

Sickle Cell Disease: A Genetic Perspective

13 Dec 2017

Summary: This paper deals with sickle-cell disease (SCD, also known as sickle cell anemia) from a genetic point of view. The disease and its genetic trait do not conform well to the traditional model of genetic inheritance, which required that the medical establishment rethink its ideas about genetic concepts like “dominant” and “recessive”. It often occurs in areas rife with malaria, and may be linked to an increased protection from severe malaria. Also discussed: symptoms of SCD, treatments and gene therapies, and demographics.

Rise of Islam, Fall of Rome, and Cultural Exchange

13 Dec 2017

The rise of Islam, the fall of Rome, and the complications of Christianity in Europe and Africa are all intertwined. At their core, these events truly shaped our modern society. As Europe encountered the major cultural centers of Axom and Meroe, and as the cultural exchange that comes unavoidably from trade, things began to change drastically in the world. It is the purpose of this paper to examine, in a broad stroke, the relationship between Africa and Europe, and between Christianity and Islam during the middle three centuries of the first millennia.

Deep Ecology

12 Dec 2017

A predominant theme in environmental philosophy is the claim that we need to correct an anthropocentric bias in our attitudes to the nonhuman world, and in particular to extend moral concern across time and across species. This is the central claim of "deep ecology", which maintains that the uncritical acceptance of anthropocentric values has abetted reprehensible practices with respect to the non-human world. In the following, the benefits and the shortcomings of anthropocentrism will be examined within the framework of ‘deep ecology’. This paper will attempt to demonstrate both the value and some of the limitations of this framework with respect to the problem of anthropocentrism. This paper will begin with an analysis of the problem of anthropocentrism, and then proceed to a discussion of deep ecology as one of the more serious challenges to this environmental question.

Patronage and Aesthetics in his Life and Art

08 Dec 2017

This essay - discussing the life in art of Kano Tanyu (1602- 1674) - will argue that Tanyu represents a classic example of the function of patronage in the production of art. In 17th century Japan the styles and subjects of art differed depending upon the class who were to be the designated audience for the art. The Kano family had tied its fortunes to the ruling Tokugawa clan from an early date; Tanyu's artist father having moved to Edo at the order of the shogun. This patronage was key to the Kano family's prominence both socially and artistically, as the daimyos of the lesser courts throughout the country copied the official art and styles of the shogunate (Paine & Soper, 202).

The Influence of Chinese Architecture

08 Dec 2017

Any discussion of the influence of Chinese architecture upon the design of Japanese temples must acknowledge that the relationship between the two design aesthetics is not simply one of Japanese acquisition of foreign styles and forms. Rather, this essay will argue that this influence may best be described as a dialectic or a "conversation" taking place in Japanese culture over centuries. In the course of this "conversation" Chinese Buddhist architectural styles - themselves influenced by earlier Indian models - influenced the design of native Japanese Shinto shrines. However, the more direct transplantation of Chinese Buddhist temple architecture in Japan was likewise often influenced by older Japanese architectural principles - as most famously embodied in the Shinto shrines - to finally evolve into a architectural style that - in Zen Buddhist temples - may best be described as an amalgam of the two forms.

Creative Writing vs. Technical Writing: What the Difference between Them?

07 Dec 2017

For many centuries, scientists and writers have tried to define creative writing, but the task being not easy. Usually, it means the art of creating literary works, original in content and ways of submitting material. For example, a journalistic article cannot be considered as creative, because its main goal is to objectively present the facts, but not express feelings or opinions of the writer. The goal of the creative writing is the exchange of one's own visions of events or situations. The authors try to understand the difference between truth and lies, between reality and fiction through their storytelling.

Hawthorne and Whitman: A Comparison

06 Dec 2017

In comparing various aspects of the fiction and poetry of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Walt Whitman, it is evident that each nineteenth-century writer’s use of symbolic landscapes, images of nature, and dramatization of qualities of fear and desire are strikingly similar. It is also evident that there are notable differences in the tone of the work, but this is not surprising, for Hawthorne and Whitman were uniquely talented individuals with different approaches to expressing the themes they presented in their works.

The Rise of Outpatient Services

05 Dec 2017

Increasing numbers of American family physicians are trading their hospital practice for increased efficiency in outpatient settings. It is argued that hospital affiliation interrupts the normal outpatient practice of physicians who are happier to leave hospital service to hospitalist physicians specialized in the care of the admitted patient, and in communication with referring physicians or specialists who also may or may not be attached to a hospital according to the traditional pattern. (Henry 1997 1) A growing number of Managed Care Organizations (MGOs), hospitals and physicianowned groups are hiring ‘hospitalists’ whose preliminary function is to care for patients in hospital, freeing up primary physicians to concentrate on outpatient service.

The Hurricane Georges struck Puerto Rico on 21st September 1998 moving east to west across Puerto Rico with fierce winds gusting to as high as 150 miles per hour and depositing up to 27 inches of rainfall. Storm-related winds, flooding and mud slides caused billions of dollars in damages and economic losses. All seventy-eight of Puerto Rico’s municipalities and most of the 3.9 million residents were affected by the storm. The hurricane stormed through Puerto Rico for a good fifteen hours and damaged everything that came across its path. This was the biggest hurricane to pass through Puerto Rico in seventy years and claimed seven lives and caused innumerable injuries. A number of houses were damaged followed by road blockades with downed trees and electric poles.

The Importance of The Asia Pacific Rim

04 Dec 2017

In the early nineties the Asia-Pacific was considered to be one of the most economically dynamic regions of the world. It accounted for 41% of world trade and half of world output. It was the fastest-growing region in the world: 30 years ago, Asia alone accounted for only 4% of the world's economy; today it accounts for 25%. Some economists predicted that by the year 2000, it would account for 33%. By the end of the century, it was to have one-half of world trade.

The Imitation of God

01 Dec 2017

Immanuel Kant, in his Religion Within the Limits of Reason Alone, observes that "we create a God for ourselves" (Kant, 157). When read out of context, such a sentence may be interpreted as the basis for the charges of irreligious propaganda that were levelled at Kant upon the publication of this work (Greene, Introd., xxxii- xxxiv). However, a closer reading of the passage, situated within the broader argument of the text, suggests that Kant is here not so much being irreligious as realistic. This essay will argue that, in this passage as in Religion as a whole, Kant is attempting to find a justification for religious thought and moral behaviour, not in revelation, but in reason. Reinforced by reason, a universal human morality may therefore be agreed upon which is not bound by the limits of culture or individual religious theology.

01 Dec 2017

Abstract: Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass represents a poetic perspective of the cultural changes that were taking place in America at the end of the century. Whitman’s collection of poems are more than poetry, can be read as a cultural biography, a celebration of one of the first publications of free verse poetry, and the insights of an openly passionate man who lived nowhere, but everywhere in the shifting culture of America.

Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement

30 Nov 2017

Rosa Parks had spent all day working and running errands on Dec. 1, 1955. She was tired, and her “feet hurt” (Phillips 36). She had to take the bus home. When she boarded, all the seats in the back, where African American people were allowed to sit, were taken. There were seats in the front, but African Americans weren’t allowed to sit in them. She settled for a seat in the middle. African Americans could sit in those seats as long as there weren’t any whites who were standing. Soon more and more white people boarded the bus until all the seats in the front were taken. The driver asked some people in Park’s row to move to the back (they would have to stand) and everyone got up to move except for Rosa Parks. Parks told the driver “no.” She wasn’t going to stand and he said that he was going to have her arrested. (Culture and Change)

The African American’s American Dream

30 Nov 2017

This undergraduate level paper is an examination of the history of the African American’s American Dream. It looks at the history of independence-minded thinking in W.E.B. Du Bois and follows through the civil rights movement and the contrasting style and messages of Martin Luther King, Jr. and of Malcolm X. It concludes that the American Dream for the African American has not fundamentally improved over the past one hundred years and seems almost more limited now than it was before the civil rights movement.
