Trayvon Martin

...Ethical Dilemma Paper Trayvon Martin Case Sonji Toussaint-Watson CJA/324 June 24, 2013 Angela Sonsalla Ethical Dilemma-Trayvon Martin The current story in the news that I have chosen to write about is the Trayvon Martin murder. I asked myself now what role did society play in this case? Society has labeled young black men who dress a certain way that is a fashion first and foremost for many of the youths today as being a criminal, or they look suspicious because of the clothing that they wear. Benz (2012) website, the journalist has not done a good job covering this heated, sensitive set of events. We have rushed to paint the story as too simply explained by racism, we have rushed to judgment on whether an arrest should be made, we have given enormous time to the loudest voices and spent precious little time digging for new perspectives or analyzing the laws and community standards in question. Besides editing the 911 tapes, we have been shown year old photographs, the photo of Trayvon Martin smiling; the very young teenager in the Hollister T-shirt is four years old. Trayvon did not look like the same child on the picture within the months before he was murdered. The photo of Geroge Zimmerman, the one of him in an orange jump suit is a mug shot that was taken 7 years ago based on an arrest that was later dropped. What subliminal messages are sent by showing a smiling 15 year old boy who was killed by a menacing man who was once in jail? Is this a truthful......

Martin Golan

...Martin Golan The Arena" is a short story written by Martin Golan. I am going through this task to analyze and interpret this text. The text sheds light on several different areas. This means that the text comes in on topics, such as nervousness, stress, discomfort, family, children, etc. It’s easy to like the lilt in Martin Golan’s writing: his word choices are crisp and his tone effervescent. The twelve stories in his collection Where Things Are When You Lose Them snap, crackle, and pop in their examination of modern travails. Suburbia is, for the most part, Golan’s milieu, and it’s one he negotiates well. His characters tend to be white and affluent, and the rigors of the working day or making ends meet are not such a concern. Rather, Golan takes on matters of the heart in times of testy human behavior. He uses hefty topics—ranging from sexual etiquette to domestic abuse to the grim specter of assisted living—to catapult his people into their moment of reckoning. Many of the stories have a straightforward structure: a phrase or image is introduced, used symbolically to counterpoint the action, and then returns to wrap things up in the denouement. The typical narrator is a middle-aged male, looking back at a life-defining episode. This perspective can be poignant, as in “The Shape of Water,” in which the protagonist reminisces about a love lost amongst the emotional debris left by swinging couples in the 60s; the stirring image of his lover diving off a boat into the......

Martin Luther

...Every immigrant man, women, or child has a story to tell, whether they travel alone or together, they have a reason to travel and start a new beginning. If a immigrant travels to America from a foreign country, they aren't always treated equally or fairly. Martin Luther King Jr. writes in his essay, "Letter from Birmingham Jail", about various topics regarding equality. Even though King writes about African-Americans and equal rights in America, he's writing about every person who is not welcomed in their country. He would have helped anyone in any country who was treated unfairly, "Had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers"(King 227). Immigrants face the same issue that King had to deal with during his time. There are five main issues that prevent immigrants from being accepted; equality, justice, oppression, freedom, and the advantages and disadvantages to allowing immigration. Like King, immigrants coming to America want equal rights as all Americans do. That's the reason coming to America. There are other factors preventing them to become legal and have the same rights as Americans. Most of them come illegal which would cause them to apply for citizenship, this can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. Kin states in his letter "We have waited for more than 340 years for our constitutional and god-given rights" (King 224). This is entirely true for all immigrants. According to Brad Knickerbocker, of The Christian......

Mascarene Martin

...The Mascarene martin or Mascarene swallow (Phedina borbonica) is a passerine bird in the swallow family that breeds in Madagascar and the Mascarene Islands. The nominate subspecies occurs on Mauritius and Réunion and has never been found away from the Mascarene Islands, but the smaller Madagascan subspecies, P. b. madagascariensis, is migratory and has been recorded wintering in East Africa or wandering to other Indian Ocean islands. The Mascarene martin is a small swallow that has grey-brown underparts becoming white on the throat and lower abdomen, dark grey-brown upperparts and a slightly forked tail. The underparts are heavily streaked with black. It nests in small colonies anywhere with suitably sheltered sites for constructing a nest, such as ledges, buildings, tunnels, caves or amongst rocks. The nest is a shallow cup of twigs and other plant material, and the normal clutch is two or three brown-spotted white eggs. The incubation and fledging times are unknown. The Mascarene martin has a heavy flight with slow wingbeats interspersed with glides, and frequently perches on wires. It feeds on insects in flight, often hunting low over the ground or vegetation. In eastern Africa, open habitats such as deforested areas are frequently used for hunting. A number of internal and external parasites have been detected in this species. Tropical cyclones can adversely affect populations on the smaller islands, but the Mascarene martin is a locally common bird with an......

Martin Luther

...Martin Luther became a monk in the Catholic Church and earned his way up in rank through devotion, prayer, and hard work. Martin soon became a priest within the Catholic Church. Martin was a firm believer in God's word and soon began teaching others in the classroom. As Martin continued to read and study his Bible, he started questioning some of his Church's beliefs and practices. As he continued to read the Bible he started to see certain discrepancies between God's written Word and the Catholic Church's practices. He started to see the truth that was written in God's Word. Martin decided that he needed show the Catholic Church where they were wrong in their teaching of God's word. In 1517, Martin Luther posted 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg. Luther welcomed challenges and debates of the Catholic doctrine. Luther argued that the Bible, not the pope, was the central means to discern God’s word — a view that was certain to raise eyebrows in Rome. Further, Luther maintained that salvation was granted by faith alone; good works and the sacraments were not necessary in order to be saved. Luther was especially appalled by the church practice of selling indulgences. These documents of the pope were sold as penitents of sin. To Luther, this was like buying salvation, and he knew that this was not right. The 95 Theses were quickly distributed throughout Germany and then made their way to Rome. In 1518, Luther was summoned to Augsburg, a city in southern Germany, to......

Martin Luther

...Notes on Martin Luther (from the PBS docudrama) Driven to Defiance “I would never have thought that such a storm would rise from Rome over one simple scrap of paper...” - Martin Luther Few if any men have changed the course of history like Martin Luther. In less than ten years, this fevered German monk plunged a knife into the heart of an empire that had ruled for a thousand years, and set in motion a train of revolution, war and conflict that would reshape Western civilization, and lift it out of the Dark Ages. Luther's is a drama that still resonates half a millennium on. It's an epic tale that stretches from the gilded corridors of the Vatican to the weathered church door of a small South German town; from the barbarous pyres of heretics to the technological triumph of printing. It is the story of the birth of the modern age, of the collapse of medieval feudalism, and the first shaping of ideals of freedom and liberty that lie at the heart of the 21st century. But this is also an intensely human tale, a story that hurtles from the depths of despair to the heights of triumph and back again. This is the story of a man who ultimately found himself a lightning conductor of history, crackling with forces he could not quite comprehend or control. For Luther, in a life full of irony, would find himself overwhelmed by his own achievements. As his followers sought to build a new and just Europe around him, he could only turn on them in frustration, declaring that......

Martin Letter

...John Bowman 1017 Pearl St. Unit B Santa Monica, CA 90405 Dear Mr. Bowman, I am sorry to inform you of our company’s decision to discontinue Martin, the show in which created and produced. Our decision to cancel the show came in the mist of the lawsuit between two of the cast member, Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell, although all the details have not been released. With that being said we, Fox Broadcasting Company, have came to the conclusion that nothing beneficial would come out of continuing the show especially with the main characters of the show going through a number of personal issues with each other. Also as the show continues for a number of years just like any other show the numbers begin to decline and the numbers for Martin have declined in every statistical category since the show began in 1992. The show’s ratings have almost been cut in half since the first season , in which there was 11.40 million viewers, compared to our most reason season, which is the 4th season that has a less than desirable 6.70 million viewers. With all that being said the show will not be just taken off the air. If it is possible to get both parties to put their issues to the side to conclude the show in a respectable way is what we would like to do for the sake of the loyal fans of Martin. I would like to thank you on behalf of everyone at Fox Broadcasting Network and we definitely look forward to working with you again if you any other ideas. Hope to hear back from you......

PGA itself and PGA tournaments require a number of stakeholders such as sponsorship companies, golfers, employees, and galleries (audiences). We have a duty to apply every value to theses stakeholders. In case of Casey Martin, a PGA membership candidate who has a circulatory disorder caused the tournament in need of golf cart. First of any single conversation, stakeholders are key elements that the board should think about. There are many stakeholders who are involved in this situation. PGA’s four major golf tournaments are occurred in country clubs that have prestige of its history and difficulties of high handicaps. Of course, using golf carts provide a lot of advantages to players because it helps them to consume their stamina less; however, using golf carts will improve the players’ scores and destroy the courses’ difficulties and prestige. Galleries might get less satisfaction when golf carts are allowed to use. They might have particular players they want to see and they would possibly lose track of those players when they have carts. Using cart might pull out of galleries’......
