In today’s society, technology continues to find new ways to protect our children and families. Several devises have already been developed to track children when they are away from home. These devises work by GPS signal to track the movement of the child and are worn externally or are imbedded in an item of clothing. There are also GPS devices already approved for implantation in humans. VeriChip was the only Food and Drug Administration-approved human-implantable microchip for use in medical purposes (DHHS pg. 71702-71704). These developments have sparked a debate over whether we should consider implanting microchips in humans for tracking and safety reasons and not just medical purposes. Today there are microchips implanted into pets for tracking purposes yet they do not have a GPS signal and only work once the animal is found and not to track their location. These same kinds of devises may be offered in the future for humans. Our government should never allow microchips to be implanted in humans for any purposes much less mandate their use. External tracking devices currently available have the capability to track children for safety without the need for implanting a microchip in the body. This kind of tracking device would serve no purpose in tracking the child’s location. As stated in this article: Chip implants would be of little use in tracking a missing child as readers only have a limited range (Lane par 14). The FDA believes that a person’s overall health may be affected by tissue reaction, movement of implanted chip, failure of transponder, among many other complications. In addition, it is clear that there are many risks involving implantation of these devise (DHHS pg. 71702-71704). The FDA also has a waiver to be signed that releases them from any liability in regards to these devises, not to mention they are also currently conducting research to see if these devices can cause cancer in the patient implanted with these microchips. Today there are microchips ready for implantation into humans but at what cost to our health? We already know that these devises pose several health risks and are a direct violation to human rights. However, what we do not know about the effects of these devises may be far more dangerous than anticipated. Imposing a law to mandate these devices in the future could be far more costly to society then we will ever know. Some say these devises will be good for medical patients however; there are many other ways to track ones medical history without implanting a foreign object into the body. There are too many side effects associated with this devise, which frankly is unnecessary and not needed for any real purpose, other than for tracking of an individual every move at any given time. Personally, I do not want that kind of power given to anyone. The opposition on the other hand believes that these devises will be good for medical patients. However; there are many other ways to track ones medical history without implanting a foreign object into the body. Currently there are medical I.D. bracelets to alert health care providers to any emergencies without the need for implanting microchips. Implanting microchips in humans also raises the question to the right of privacy as well as health concerns related to implantation. Our right to privacy is defined as the right to one’s freedom of intrusion. If all humans were implanted with microchips, there would be no such thing as privacy as we now know it, not to mention the invasiveness of the surgery for implantation. The continuing presence of the microchip within the individual must also be taken into account when considering our human rights. In combination with the surgery, the implant represents a permanent intrusion of our privacy. With an implanted microchip, your brain is hotwired into a computer that has a GPS tracking systems to monitor your movements, every minute of every day, for the rest of your life....
A humanmicrochip implant is an integrated circuit device, a RFID tag, encased in silicate glass and implanted into a human's body. Such implants are used for information storage, such as personal identification, medical history, medication allergies, and contact information. If the implant is GPS-enabled, it makes it possible for individuals to be physically located by latitude, longitude, speed, and direction of movement. Verichip is one of the devices used for this purpose.
 Hospitals can gain access to medical history regardless of location by scanning one's implant chip. The speed at which this information can be attained may be vital to one's survival.
 Contrary to popular belief a chip that allows GPS tracking of individuals does not yet exist. Many news sources and websites have confused the issue implantable chip and wearable tracking devices.
 Theoretically, such a tracking function could aid authorities in locating missing persons, fugitives, etc The tracking function could also be used to identify criminals at the scene of a crime and as well as locating those who have fled the scene of the crime.
 Great potential to improve the lives of paralyzed individuals.
 Track people's movements and even their bank accounts with these chips is now being publicly acknowledged.

A humanmicrochip is an integrated circuit device that is the size of a grain of rice implanted under the human skin. These implants are used for information storage, such as personal identification and medical history. They also have a GPS integrated that makes possible for individuals to be physically located when enable. People are uncertain if a microchip would be a good idea; the truth is that many people would benefit from this new technology. Humans should consider the microchip implant as a new form of protection.
Microchips can help find lost or abducted children. Many children are abducted throughout the world and many are never found. Having a microchip in children arms can give parents peace and feeling of security. Imagine a child was abducted by a complete stranger and took off far from their home; instead of going to the police and filling a missing child report or sending out an Amber Alert, it would be much easier to just look at a computer or cellphone and let the police know the exact location of the child. In addition, the agony and sadness of not knowing children locations will be over. Some children incline to falsify their whereabouts when parents ask. The microchip can resolve that problem and parents would immediately know if their children are saying the truth or not. It can also prevent children from...
...draconian implications and say a big warm slightly terrified hello to the new, FDA-approved implantable microchip, coming soon to a hospital and a Starbucks and a bleak government agency and a human dermal layer near you. Very, very near you.
Have you seen it? Did you check out the pictures? Microchips the size of a grain of rice, programmed with all manner of data and inserted just under your skin and it's all completely legal and government approved and it's happening right now. I mean, who knew microchipping your pet and implanting livestock would lead to this? Oh right -- everyone, that's who.
The wait is over. No more Philip K. Dick sci-fi fantasia, no more far-off Orwellian Big Brother. We are there. Or, rather, here. This new chip is already being implanted in medical patients for the alleged purpose of tracking their health needs and speeding treatment and it is right now being used in the flesh of employees working in high-security areas to ensure they don't swipe top-secret pens and classified pads of Post-it Notes.
Which is to say, you have been warned. Human skin has already been penetrated. Alarms are already sounding because it's one of those things wherein you can't even fully comprehend all the weird and creepy and potentially dangerous possibilities, but it doesn't even matter because all you need to hear is those four magic words: Microchip. Implant. Human....

Managing Human Resources at Barden Bearings
1) Which of the HR objectives facing Mr. Brush are the most important to the success of the business? Prioritize them and justify your list.
From the perspective of Mr. Brush the most important objectives for the success of the business are:
Recruiting and training new hourly employees
Safety and occupational health improvement
New machines and development of new workforce
Managing health costs of an aging workforce
Recruiting and training new employees is very important HR objective for every company. Globalization and modernization of the market created a necessity for constant improvements. It is very important for companies to realize that recruiting and training new people creates an opportunity for innovations, as new and different minds are coming to a company. Moreover, the Barden Bearings Corporation has a problem with aging workers which is another reason for recruiting new employees. A lot of workers are close to retirement, therefore new employees are necessary to fill the positions.
Another important objective is safety and occupational health improvements. Because workers are handling very complex machines there is a high probability for injuries which directly affects the effectiveness of the workforce. As effectiveness of the workers is directly related with the productivity of the company, it is very important to have a safe and...
Human Behavior of Social Environment
Psychological Theories of Crime and Delinquency
Long Island University
In the article, “Psychological Theories of Crime and Delinquency,” taken from, “The Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment,” it attempts to understand the reasoning behind delinquent behavior. This is a topic that has interested human behaviorist for generations, because the concept is hard to comprehend. We all know that everyone has an inner drive to do well. Everyone longs to be accepted, loved, and desired. If given the choice, no one would chose to commit a crime, or be involved in any harmful activity. Yet, anyone that has looked around at the world knows that in every generation there have been many terrible cases and stories of crime. This is one of the most alarming human behaviors, and there have been many theories that try to understand the reasons why this happens.
The article explores the connection between personality and crime, bringing down a study that was conducted in the 1950’s. 500 boys were gathered, each with a history of crime and delinquent behavior. Upon investigating the lives of each of the boys, the results indicated that they all had many things in common, different than those with non-delinquent behavior....

Assessment of Sexual Issues
James and Mary experience an unsatisfactory sexual relationship due to James’ dysfunction of maintaining an erection half the time. James could be experiencing Performance Anxiety. Performance anxiety is the anxiety a man has when he thinks he is not getting an erection fast enough, or his erection is not firm enough, or does not seem to last long enough. Once a man experiences even a single case of ED, he may continue a cycle of anxiety about repeated episodes of unsatisfactory erections. He will anticipate erectile problems, fixating on performance rather than the pleasurable aspects of sexual arousal. His ability to relax is hampered, increasing negative self-talk, and his perceptions of self-worth and partner are negative. James is...
