Name: Rawan Qishawi Topic: The violation of human rights in Syria
Research question: What caused the Syrian uprising and what were the outcomes? How did human right activists come to the aid of those whom had their rights taken away? Revised Thesis Statement: The political repression, uneven economy, and religious influence caused by the Syrian government were major causes that led to the current Syrian uprising. The Syrian government directly used its power by taking violent actions at a zero tolerance level of rebellion, torturing and ruining the lives of citizens whom chose to speak for their rights and peacefully demonstrated against the unjust of their government. This peaceful demonstration later became an anti-government movement in which was supported by human rights organizations as well as anti-Syria foreign countries. Farmers became weapon makers and children became adults. Humanists decide to take action. Human rights parties make proposals for peace hoping to cease fire and calm the uprising situation in Syria. On the other hand, anti-Syrian countries are acting and supporting the fall of the regime. First Paragraph’s Claim: What caused the Syrian uprising? The thirty years of unjust ruling by the father followed by inheriting the power by the son after the death of the father in 2000, initiate the first sparkle of the rebellion. Also the economic changes in Syria in which open the door for private investment in the public sector on unfair basis created an uneven economy making the rich richer and the poor poorer. The uneven economy added fuel to the fire, but what really exploded the bomb was the hidden religion conflict between the Sunni rebellions against the Shia president. Supporting Statement for Claim: Syrians peacefully demonstrate their rights to get at the least the minimum needs to live a decent life within the country resource and expressing their right to be part of a democratic political system. The peaceful demonstration turned into a bloody civil war by the government who violated the International Civil rights. Evidence: “ Syrian uprising”, “top ten reasons for the uprising in Syria...Political repression, Uneven Economy,...etc. “ (*Source: about.com, Middle east Issues) Insight/ Commentary/Analysis: The absolute power of the Syrian leaders in which they inherited over years led them to ignore the minimum needs of the citizens and their rights to express those needs.
Supporting Statement for Claim: Syria has been an empire run by the Assad family since Hafez Al-Assad launched to the presidency chair in 1970. Upon his death in 2000, his son, Bashar Al-Assad, became the president of Syria. Both the father and the son used fear and power to stay in control ignoring that Syria is a democratic country not a dictatorship for the Assad family. Evidence: “Syria has been a dictatorship run by the Assad family since 1970...Upon the death of Hafez al-Assad in 2000, his son, Bashar al-Assad, became President of Syria. Both Assad’s used terror and force to remain in power..., etc.” (*Source: historyguy.com/syrian_uprising_2011.htm ) Insight/ Commentary/Analysis: The uprising in Syria in 2011 caused by the Assad's unjust ruling is a repeated scenario of what happened in 1982 by the father, Hafiz Al-Assad. In result for both scenarios, the civilian peaceful protest rose to the level of anti-government when the Assad family used their power to stop the protest. The uprising resulted in the death of thousands of civilians. Supporting Statement for Claim: Syria has been a Sunni Muslim Country for centuries. At one point of the history Damascus was the seat of Sunni caliphate. On the other hand, Iran has been the most powerful Shia regime in the Middle East. With the rising of the political relationship between the Syrian Shia president and Iran, the rising of Sunni anti-government movement in Syria become...

Future of Evolution Tarnished by Lack of Education
The right to an education is an essential humanright. Every individual, regardless of race, gender, nationality, ethnic, social origin, religion, political preference, age, or disability is entitled to a free elementary education. This right is clearly stated in the United Nations’ "Declaration of HumanRights." The key to the continuance of human evolution and for humans to reach their full capability is enabled by a viable education. Each and every person has a right to learn and have a basic education under all circumstances. Education allows people to become literate and understand the past, present, and future developments of their kind. Education may resemble a basic idea and right; however, this right is being infringed upon in several countries. People in those unfortunate countries, such as India, are not being granted with their basic twenty-sixth humanright of an education. People are not being given the proper knowledge and information they need in order to live a successful life the best they can. This is a serious problem that has been occurring since the late 1930's and early 1940's during Nazi Germany. During that time period people that were Jewish, Communists, or were deemed "undesirable,"...
Human Growth and Development ResearchPaper
The following researchpaper will be written on schizophrenia. I will discuss what schizophrenia is. I will discuss the history behind this chronic disease. Also, who is affected by it? In addition, how common it is in some people. And, I will talk about the different types. Furthermore, I will discuss the causes of schizophrenia. If schizophrenia is hereditary? And the different types of symptoms. Also, how it is diagnosed. Lastly, I will talk over the treatment for people with schizophrenia.
What is Schizophrenia? Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental illness. It is considered one of the psychotic mental disorders and is described by symptoms of thought, behavior, and social problems. The thought problems associated with schizophrenia are described as psychosis, in that the person's thinking is completely out of touch with reality at times. An example of this would be, the sufferer of this disease may hear voices or see people that are not actually present or feel like bugs are crawling on their skin when there are none. The individual with this disorder may also have disorganized speech, behavior, physically rigid, significantly decreased feelings, and delusions, which are ideas about themselves or others that have no basis in reality (for example, the individual might experience paranoia, in that he or she thinks...
...more than a man who lived a very powerless and negative life, getting his hands on a small
amount of power in a small antisemitic party and going on a power trip resulting in being the
worlds most infamous leader.
To live the childhood that HItler lived wouldn’t be easy for anyone. Neglect, negativity
and powerlessness surrounded him everyday of his life until he moved to Germany in 1913.
When he moved he noticed opportunities opening up. A chance for him to gain power, to show
that he could do something in this world instead of living on the streets, he was going to live big.
Hitler was determined to live with his self depicted aryan race, along side power and wealth.
Through investigation of Hitlers psychiatric history its also clear to see that Hitler had not
one, but many mental issues.
Dr. Ian Kershaw, a history professor at the University of Sheffield
in England, wrote a biography that goes into great depth and investigation of Hitler's mental
health. Also, Dr. Fritz Redlich, a neurologist and psychiatrist, concluded that Hitler exhibited
many psychiatric symptoms, including extreme paranoia and defenses that ''could fill a
psychiatry textbook.” Hitler is also reported of having extreme O.C.D, washing his hands
obsessively. Hitler is also said to have an extreme addiction to nicotine, doing anything in his
power to have it at all times and becoming very angry and short tempered when he did not

...territory. This is the type of woman that Betty Friedan described in her book, The Feminine Mystique—a reserved woman who lives to serve her husband, her children, and her family’s image4.
Women who did not meet these qualifications were outliers in society and “good housewives” were supposed to look down upon them with pity. Those women who went to college for a degree instead of a husband, those women who strived for a career of their own, or those women who acted unhappy, unfeminine, and anxious were all seen as different and unusual. A “good housewife” was taught how to cook, clean, and look presentable for her family and her community but mainly for her husband. They were taught not to be involved in careers or to strive for political rights, things that old feminists had fought for—society viewed these arenas as part of the man’s world. Because the national model for women was to dress, act, and live this way, very few questioned it. All of these perspectives contributed to the “unnamed problem” that women suffered.
A housewife was not to question, argue, or even talk about their unhappiness as it could affect her husband’s job. Therefore, society forced women to keep this side of their lives hidden. Governor Adlai Stevenson mentioned in his speech to Smith college women graduates that they were to, “watch for and arrest the constant gravitational pulls to which we are all exposed in our specialized, fragmented society”5. Basically, women are not...

In the case of Ohio State Bar Assn. v. Martin, 118 Ohio St.3d 119, 886 N.E.2d 827, (Ohio, 2008). The State Bar Association charged two non-attorneys, their closely held corporation, their business, their current franchisor, and their former franchisor with engaging in unauthorized practice of law. These two non-attorneys were giving advice to people about their legal rights, including aid in preparing and completing legal documents, and charging fees for such services, constituted the unauthorized practice of law. The Ohio State Bar Association, charged respondents, Terry and Eva Martin, their corporation (TELLR Corporation), their business (We The People of Cincinnati), their current franchisor (We The People USA, Inc.), and their former franchisor (IDLD, Inc.), with engaging in the unauthorized practice of law. The Bar alleged that respondents had advised individuals in regard to completing legal pleadings and other documents, provided advice to individuals about their legal rights, and charged fees for these services.

Dean of Edinboro University
What should be done with Professor Smut? Professor Smut should be fired from Edinboro University. For the following reasons he violated the First Amendment, academic freedom, and may have caused damage to the students. The First Amendment states that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Professor Smut violated academic freedom, “The standard established in these cases requires a plaintiff who alleges a hostile environment to prove that sexual advances and comments are “sufficiently severe or pervasive ‘to alter the conditions of [the victim’s] employment and create an abusive working environment (Rutherglen 1)’” It’s problematic to categorize what is considered sexual harrasment. Men and women take and view harrasment differently. What men may find acceptable, women may find it offensive, and classify it as sexual harrasment. Academic freedom is the belief that the freedom of inquiry by faculty members is essential to the mission of the academy as well as the principles of academia, and that scholars should have freedom to teach or communicate ideas or facts without being targeted for repression, job...
... College drinking has become popular among all students throughout college campuses. Students are encouraged to “follow the crowd”. Extensive research has been done on social norms and how it influences behavior People conform to what others do in attempts to feel included. The following literature reviews attempt to support this hypothesis. Research done by (Dipali V. R., Clayton N., 2014) suggests that social norms are among the strongest influences on college drinking (Neighbors, Lee, Lewis, Fossos, & Larimer, 2007). Due to perceived norms, students tend to overestimate the amount of alcohol is being consumed by their peers as well as the frequency of consumption. In a recent study done in the University of Houston, researchers examined whether perceived descriptive norms moderated the relationship between temptation and drinking. The findings were that college students who are higher in temptation drink more and experience more alcohol-related problems when they perceive drinking to be more prevalent among their peers. Dipali V. R., Clayton N., (2014).Perceiving peers to be drinking more may facilitate
yielding to temptation by offering justification (i.e., everyone else is drinking) or by making one's own drinking seem to be more “normal”. Dipali V. R., Clayton N., (2014). In a social norms study done by Alan other research done by Alan D. Berkowitz states that our behavior is influenced by incorrect perceptions of how...
...consisted of a predominantly male population. There were a number of servants that took residence on the estate that had responsibilities that consisted of mostly domestic duties such as washing and cleaning, and many of the other male personnel were there purely for military duties like guarding the estate from potential attackers. The children of the Paston’s played a very important role in the functioning of the family, frequently dealing directly with important affairs such as financial, religious, social, and political information. In letter one hundred and twenty-two, Margery Brews writes to John Paston III, “And I let you plainly understand that my father will no more money part withal in that behalf but 100 and 50 mark, which is right for the accomplishment of your desire” (235). This letter depicts a scenario in which a financial situation is taken care of showing the role that the children played in the overall functioning of the aristocratic families. The children of the Pastons often traveled running errands to converse with people that owed money or had information that was important to the family. In letter twenty-two William Paston II writes to John Paston, “Mine Lord Chancellor came not her sin I came to London, nor mine Lord of York. Mine Lord of Canterbury hath received his cross, and I was with him in the King’s chamber when he made homage” (41). This quote displays an event in which one of the Paston brothers was asked to look into some...
