DRUG AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE IN TEXAS

The Menace of Drug Abuse in Texas
Drug and substance abuse has been a problem in our society for over twenty years now. Here in Texas Alcohol has been the primary drug of abuse till lately when other substance abuse have begun to infiltrate the society especially among the youth in society. Studies have been carried out within the cities and towns of Texas and tangible evidence can be found on the possibilities of a real problem in our society. Many may ignore but the truth beckons in the various research institute findings. “Today majority of the youth in university level of education may end up using or being part of a group that uses hard drugs.” This is according to the founder of Drug Care Centre Texas, (John Mark Sheddle, May 2015.)
Drugs have grown among the youth to a level that the number of students at rescue and rehabilitation centers in the past decade have rose by over 30% an increase that is indeed disturbing. Many have left schools and began street life. We can note that this is a problem that requires urgent attention from all departments of society especially the media as I believe that media is accessible to everyone in society. Media can influence how a society trends. When an issue is voiced by the media many people will have knowledge of that substance and thus will have created awareness. I would like you as the editor to consider my application urgent which requires quick and precise attention from all quotas. The reason as to why this issue is a concern to me and many in society. Last week we had a meeting we as the youth of Texas to discuss on the way forward and the real issue affecting the society.

The Doors

...The Doors When you think of psychedelic rock and roll of the sixties, you would have to be a fool if The Doors don’t come to mind. In their short 54 month career the iconic rock band shoved right through the boundaries that so many other bands dared not cross and helped millions of people see things differently and experience things they had not before. With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide and another 1 million sold annually The Doors have achieved legendary status. The band formed when Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek met in UCLA Film School. While walking on the beach one day, Ray persuaded Jim to read one of his poems, “Moonlight Drive”, and a few others. After hearing the talent that Jim possessed, Ray convinced him to start a rock band where his poems would be mixed with rock and roll music. Drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Kreiger joined the band shortly there after. One thing that immediately made the band stand out from the others was the lack of a bass player so Ray played the bass line on a keyboard with his left hand and played chords with his right. Also, a session bassist was added when needed. The name of the group, The Doors, was thought of by Jim and was taken from Aldous Huxley’s book, The Doors of Perception, and more particularly from William Blake’s quotation that inspired the title: “If the doors of perception were cleansed, man would see things as they truly are – infinite.” The Doors’ music has a mystical, spiritual feeling......

False Representation

...False Representation   While watching Mel Gibson’s movie, Apacalypto, he depicts Native Americans with typical stereotypes that we commonly see in today’s society. Some of the stereotypes that are included have to do with their clothing, physical features, personality and their ability to become one with nature. All these aspects were shown through the main character Jaguar Paw as he faced the many difficulties that came his way. The clothing and physical features that Mel Gibson present are common stereotypes of Native Americans acting like uncivilized savages. In the movie, Jaguar Paw was mostly naked except for an undergarment he wore below the waist. He had tattoos, big piercings, and wore many necklaces, amulets, and bands around his body. Also, he had the body type of a physical fit and toned man with long braided hair. These are all common stereotypes of a typical Native American. They are seen as savages because they wear little or no clothing at all and the amulets that they wear are made from animals that they hunt. Moreover, Jaguar Paw had the stereotypical body, that all Native Americans were fit and muscularly toned because they are hunters and warriors. However, not all Native Americans were naked and physically fit. Every tribe had their own unique style of clothing jewelry and not all men were in shape. In a particular scene that involved Jaguar Paw, he was portrayed even more as a savage and barbarian. In this scene, Jaguar Paw and his hunting group kill......

Selling Religion Door to Door

...Selling Religion Door to Door Robin Jones February 2, 2009 HUM 130 Religions of the World Axia College of the University of Phoenix Abstract “The PURPOSE OF THE WATCHTOWER is to exalt Jehovah God as Sovereign Lord of the universe. It keeps watch on world events as these fulfill Bible prophecy. It comforts all peoples with the good news that God’s Kingdom will soon destroy those who oppress their fellow men and that it will turn the earth into a paradise. It encourages faith in God’s now-reigning King, Jesus Christ, whose shed blood opens the way for mankind to gain eternal life. The Watchtower, published by Jehovah’s Witnesses continuously since 1879, is non-political. It adheres to the Bible as its authority.” [ (The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah's Kingdom, 2007) ] Selling Religion Door to Door What do we truly know about Jehovah’s Witnesses? We have all avoided the door when we see them on the doorstep, but what do we know about their beliefs? Are their beliefs similar or different from our own? Why are they on the doorstep? What are they selling? These are the questions I have asked myself many times. This is also one of the reasons I chose to learn more about this religion. I have known a few Jehovah’s Witnesses in my life, and they both had drastically different ways of practicing the religion. Not all Jehovah’s Witnesses conform to the strict rules. In my journey to learn more, I found that more and more followers are becoming disassociated with the group;...

The Door in the Wall

...The Door in the Wall Confiding to his friend Redmond who narrates “The Door in the Wall,” Lionel Wallace relates that a preoccupation is gradually coming to dominate his life, one that is even affecting his career as a successful politician. Long ago as a lonely child of five he had wandered out of his home into the streets of West Kensington in London, where he noticed a green door set in a white wall. It was very attractive to him, and he wanted to open it, but at the same time he felt that his father would be very angry if he did. Wallace’s father is described as “a stern preoccupied lawyer, who gave him little attention and expected great things of him.” Wallace’s mother was dead, and he was being raised by a governess. Nevertheless, the young Wallace gives in to the temptation and finds himself in an enchanted garden. Wallace describes the garden as a children’s paradise with an inspiring atmosphere. The garden’s colors are clean and bright, and the child is filled with happiness. There are various animals, including two tame panthers, beautiful flowers, and shady trees. Wallace meets a tall, fair girl who “came to meet me, smiling, and said ‘Well?’ to me, and lifted me and kissed me, and put me down and led me by the hand.” He meets other children and they play games together, although he cannot remember the games, a fact which later causes him much distress. A woman begins to read a book to the boy, and soon it becomes apparent that the story she is telling is that......

False Judgement

...Independent Study Project Othello, the Invisible Wound, To Kill a Mockingbird July 30th 2014 By Eileen Harford Everyone has had a time in their life when they have misjudged a situation. Whether it was assuming someone took your pencil when it is actually in behind you ear, or assuming which character is the killer in our favorite movie, we all have misjudgements all the time in our lives. When was the last time you have mistaken a situation? The theme of false judgement demonstrated in the play “Othello” by Shakespeare, the short story “The Invisible Wound” by Karoly Kisfaludi, and the film “To Kill a Mockingbird”. In these three storylines, the author exhibits the theme of false judgment through a character of innocence that is poorly misjudged and ends tragically for them. Othello accuses his wife, Desdemona of adultery, while the unnamed protagonist in “The Invisible Wound” also inaccurately assumes his wife is cheating. In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, the jury accuses Tom Robinson of a crime that he did not commit all because of the colour of his skin. Given the above, it is clear that these three story lines hold the same theme of an error in judgement occurring. Throughout the play, “Othello” by William Shakespeare, a few of the characters are condemned on untruthful information. Desdemona and Cassio are victims of poor judgement. Accusations towards Desdemona seem to be the most prominent to any reader – which all begin when Othello falls to Iago’s manipulation......

Enemy at the Door

...ENEMY AT THE DOOR Satan (false accuser), our enemy is a defeated foe (Col 2:15) and yet he stands between us and a spiritual feast (Psalm 23:5). He and his defeated forces are arrayed against us (Eph 6: 12). We only need to “put on the whole armor of God” and stand, holding fast to and in the victory and triumph of our Lord Jesus. His end has been predicted- to be captured and cast into the lake of fire to be tormented for ever (Rev 20:10). Yet, he is active and determined to undo the work of the cross and bring despair and fall of every believer Apostle Paul talks about the “wiles of the devil” in Ephesians 6:11. ‘Wiles’ in the original is a compound word combining travel and trickery – literally ‘leading up the path’. Satan puts in an appearance in the initial pages of the Bible itself and on 3 occasions he physically appeared and attacked – Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to deceive, in heaven to destroy Job and alongside Zechariah to discredit ( accuse) him. Today also he carries out his attacks directly as well as indirectly. Direct Attack He attacks: • Possessions: wealth, livestock, jobs, houses etc. as in Job 1:14-17 • People ( close to us) as in Job 1:19- sons, daughters • Person as in Job 2:7- physical illness like sores , boils He also • Prevents saints from carrying out the Lord’s work as in 1 Thess 2:18 Today also he carries out the same manner of attacks- missions, evangelists and believers. But just like Job and Apostle Paul......

False Claim

...The False Claims Act The False Claims Act is an American federal law that covers fraud involving any federally funded contract or program. It is the federal government primary tool in combating fraud against the government. Recent legislation, such as the Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, has broadened the scope of the False Claims Act. The definition of a false claim has been expanded, so now any false statement that is material to a claim can be actionable and liability has been expanded to knowingly failing to repay an overpayment (Cardinal 2013). According to the Wikipedia, this American federal law imposes liability on persons and companies typically federal contractors who defraud governmental programs. The law includes a qui tam provision that allows people who are not affiliated with the government, called "relators" under the law, to file actions on behalf of the government informally called "whistleblowing” especially when the relator is employed by the organization accused in the suit. Qui Tam. Qui Tam is a writ whereby a private individual who assists a prosecution can receive all or part of any penalty imposed (wiki 2015). Its name is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase qui tam pro domino rege quam pro se ipso in hac parte sequitur, meaning “he who sues in this matter for the king as well as for himself” (Wiki, 2015). There are many legal and regulatory principles and concepts affecting the......

Palladium Door

...successful year for Palladium Door Inc., a small regional garage door manufacturer, reaching $9.2 million dollars in sales with $460,000 in net profit. As the 2004 approached, the director of sales and marketing, Richard Hawley, asked that they create a plan to raise sales for 2004 by 36% to $12.5 million. This idea was driven primarily by suppliers, in respect to the raw materials needed to make the steel doors. It was agreed that more sales were necessary to keep a stable buying position with these suppliers and more budget was needed on promotions and advertising to achieve this goal. The company distributes steel residential and commercial garage doors and supplies through 300 independent dealers and 50 exclusive dealers which service 150 markets. However, 50 of these markets have the 50 exclusive dealers as the only provider of Palladium doors. Palladium also had 10 sales representatives. To meet the sales goal, it was imperative to determine the amount of dealers, their locations and particulars needed to achieve this. A number of solutions were offered by Palladium executives: adding more dealers into the current markets it operates in; developing an exclusive franchise program with nonexclusive dealers operating in different markets; reducing the number of dealerships, not changing the distribution strategy or dealers.
