The one piece of Mesopotamian art that struck me the most was the Winged Human Headed Bull, also called Lamassu. This high relief struck me because of its power. It is able to command attention through its size, position, and strangeness. Its scale is massive at almost fourteen feet tall. It is placed at the entrance of the Citadel of Sargon II, demanding attention and setting the mood. It carries a strangeness with its five legs, bull body, human head, and bird wings. When I first saw this piece, I felt a fear arise in me, especially after visualizing what it must be like to see it up close. The Assyrians that designed this piece of art were trying to capture the viewer's attention and provoke fear.
The Assyrians, who reigned from 900-600 B.C., were very militaristic in culture. They were warriors and defenders of their land. The Citadel of Sargon II was built for the purpose of defense- this can be seen through many aspects of the architecture, especially the fortification and crenellation of the walls. These Lamassu figures were placed at the entrance way. They set the mood, a fearful one, to those that entered. They also were a reflection of the Assyrians themselves. The lamassus had the body of a bull- a figure known for its power and strength. Also, its five legs created a stable position, connected to the ground. The Assyrians saw themselves as powerful, strong warriors that had a stable foundation they defended. They wanted to be feared, and the Winged Human Headed Bull was the perfect figure to capture that feeling and project it.

Ashurnasipal II – Human-headedWinged Lion (Lamassu)
Ashunasipal II was one of the great, if not the greatest, king of Assyria and ruled
from 883-859 B.C.E.. He was one of the earliest conquers of Assyria and he gained
territory as far west as the Mediterranean. After he gained the land of Assyria, he turned
ancient Kalhu into Nimrund, which he then made the capital. This capital was about 900
acres surrounded by a mud-brick wall. The wall was 42 feet high, 120 feet thick and five
miles long. In the southwest corner of this blockaded area were temples, palaces, and
administrative offices. After everything was finished in 879 B.C.E., Ashurnasipal II held
a festival where 69,574 people attended, to celebrate the completion of their new capital.
An inscription documenting that day stated, ‘“the happy people of all the lands together
with the people of Kalhu—for ten days I feasted, wined, bathed, and honored them and
sent them back to their home in peace and joy.’”(Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History. New
York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art).

Case Study 1
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...

MEDIA ON SEXUALITY PAPER
SCHOLARLY ARTICLE SUMMARY
The article that I chose for this paper is called “Oral sex: Behaviours and feelings of Canadian young women and implications for sex education”. This article was published in The European Journal of Contraception and Reproductive Health Care in June of 2010. The focus of the research that was conducted is young woman and oral sex. The hypothesis of this particular article is to provide that in current times, oral sex in young women is an activity that is common and normal (Hess, Malacad, 2010).
This researched was conducted by using college students for the sample. These college students were from a university in Alberta, Canada and were all females. There were a total of 181 young, Canadian women from the sample and they ranged from age 18-25 years old. There was a simple method used in this study to gain the information needed for the results. The method that was used was a questionnaire about sexual behavior that was self-administered. The sample had the choice to either mail their questionnaire back or bring it back in person. This was to make the sample feel that it would be more anonymous if they felt more uncomfortable handing it back in person. Some of the questions that were on it were about their experiences and emotions relating to vaginal intercourse and oral sex (Hess, Malacad,...
