He was known for many things, but he is especially remembered for being the youngest man to assume presidency. Have you ever seen MT. Rushmore? Teddy’s face along with other popular presidents such as Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln are located here. MT. Rushmore is one of the most famous U.S. landmarks.

Childhood
Teddy grew up in New York City. He was not like you or I. Teddy didn’t attend school instead he was homed schooled. He was home schooled because he had a severe illness and asthma. At the age of 7 he showed some interest in his future career. His parents always encouraged him to explore his interest in becoming a naturist. If he was given a hurt animal he would nurse this animal back to a healthy state. His parents pushed him to develop a rigorous workout routine with boxing and heavy lifting.

Adulthood
During Teddy’s adulthood he attended Harvard, and Columbia Law. Teddy was elected to the New York state assembly at the age of 26. He was very determine, and a very hard worker. He overcame his poor health and the tragic deaths of love ones to become one of the greatest presidents in American history. He developed the domestic policy known as the “Square deal”. He advocated for the conservation of natural resources and consumer protection.

Bully

...called as bullying if repeated over and again with an intention to hurt. It can be verbal, physical or psychological in nature. It can range from calling names to spreading rumours or even extorting money or other treasured possessions. Bullying behaviour is seen all over the world and almost in all sections of society. It might start at an age as early as preschool and might intensify in the transitional teenager years. There can be various reasons behind this kind of aggressive behaviour. Often the victim is shy and introvert and weak in built as compared to bully. On the other hand, bullying is a behaviour which does not necessarily demand a great built. A bully tries to attract the attention of others in a negative manner. It can be correlated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Similarly children coming from aggressive or disturbed family background showcase the bullying behaviour. Sometimes bullies just gives around what they have been through as retaliation. The affected child is most of the times submissive and docile in nature. It is extremely hard to identify if the child is facing bullying at school or community. Generally the affected children don’t talk with their parents about the incidences. They are either too scared or feel embarrassed to admit such behaviour happening to them. But parents might notice a quite withdrawal of the children from daily situations. The kid may repeatedly complain of false aches and avoid going school.......

Bully

...“Sometimes they trip you and you fall. When they laugh, you think maybe you had a stupid expression on your face as you fell or maybe someone said something funny that you missed. Sometimes you laugh with them, because after all, someone falling flat on their face is kind of funny, right? Sure.” This is how it starts: small. Bullying. A form of abuse: involving repeated acts over time attempting to create or enforce one person's (or group's) power over another person (or group). Recently, I have learned the going-on of one of the most tragic events ever, The Shoah. Through this learning I have derived some profound insights into not only myself, but others. My World Geography class researched acts of the Holocaust and discussed them at length. These exercises changed me, forever. They provided an experience that was incredibly valuable in changing my view on a variety of things: the role of bystanders, empathy, the power of little things, and how to react. Therefore, studying the Holocaust has changed my view and reaction to bullying, which is now focused on both recognizing and stopping bullying. The first thing we discussed about the Holocaust was the string of continuous discriminatory acts against the Jews. It was a changing moment for me. Before then, I had supposed the Holocaust as a random act of sorts - an event without roots before it. I was wrong. I learned that bigotry against Jews had been happening for centuries. It started in 70 A.D. and...

Bully

...As the years have progressed, it has become inevitable to avoid bullying in school. Being bullied is not always physical, but can be emotional and psychological as well. Watching the film "Bully", I was taken aback by the extremity of the situation. I was not aware of how young the bullying starts. It is appalling and discomforting to know that it is just progressively getting worse. It is frightening to think that when I have children, that they will have to encounter this. I believe that Bully needs to be viewed by more people. It is an eye opener to how intense and severe the bullying scene has become. The children in the film were bullied because they were "different". But who determines the definition of different? Who sets the standard of normal? In reality, no one really has the right to judge someone and proclaim them different or weird. We are all created with unique features that are our own. However, dating back since the beginning of life, the world has attained a class/social system. Over the years, children have watched the separation of society, whether it be through television or in person. This evokes either a sense of superiority or inferiority in a child, becoming the foundation for bullying. With children committing suicide due to bullying, there needs to be serious action taking place to stop and prevent it. I agree with one of the mothers in the film that stated that when she sends her child to school, she should be able to feel......

...should be classified as a form of harassment, and for those that have lost someone dear to them because of bullying are pushing for bullying to become a criminal offense. People are still trying to determined in what category bullying falls under and what is the fair way to deal with it. A lot of people are starting to acknowledge that something needs to be done and fast because bullying is affecting a lot of us, not just the victims anymore. But the question most are asking is; should bullying be consider a crime. A bully is someone that intimidates someone smaller and weaker than them, and sometimes uses physical force to get their victim to do something against their will. A bully can be a person with low personal self esteem and only feels like someone of interest when they bullying others. Some people think that a bully is a person that does not receive enough love or attention from their parents and take it out on others. When someone is victimized by a bully, people call this “bullying”. Bullying has been around for a while, but never has it done this much damage where the victims have either started to retaliate and attack their offender or have the victims commit suicide. Bullying is getting harder and harder to stop, especially when people are standing by and not doing anything to stop it. We need to start asking ourselves how many children need to get bullied or need to commit suicide before we start realizing that this needs a solution. Some people would like......

Bullies

...A bully usually behaves differently toward persons of higher authority than to the target person. That is no different from the school yard bully who pushes someone to the ground and then turns to smile at the teacher standing nearby. In today's workplace, most bullies behave in ways that are subtle, not blatantly aggressive. They have learned, like people who discriminate based on race, that little things done over a period of time are often more frightening and intimidating than would be stepping over the line of legality into a major confrontation. Bullies don't want to be caught. They don't wish to be held accountable for much of anything. Any behavior that they are called to account for will be blamed on someone else, usually the target person. They know how to explain things so they sound reasonable and logical, all the while, thinking about ways to increase the pain felt by their target. It's not ordinarily one thing. It is usually a collection of events and interactions over a period of time that can range from a few days to months or years. A lot depends on the target's ability to withstand the onslaught of negative feelings created by such treatment How Can You Tell if You Have a Bully in Your Workforce? Well, turnover is a key indicator. It is hard for an employer to retain people in an environment where a bully is actively at work hurting others. Since there are so few satisfying outcomes available to employees who find themselves targets of a bully,......

...political topic above the rest. When you see a classmate 5’2” and 131 lbs. be harassed for his appearance and be taunted for his lack of “vertical stature” it may seem like a common case of teasing. But when the actions become physical such as my classmate being stuffed into trashcans because he is “compact-able” what then would you describe it as? Did I have the proper tools to notifying someone or the education to know what I might be able to do to stop it from happening? There were no publicized programs and or institutes for help posted for students that were easily accessible. And the bullies just kept bullying with no repercussions. Is this something you would allow your child, friend, family member, or student to endure? Bullying has become a nation-wide issue that has many avenues that are in place for combating the problem, providing services for both the bullied and bullies and prevention and review committees to stop it before it happens, investigate and review the act(s). With programs, websites, and groups popping up all over the country there are people standing by the push and have started the dominos for all of the efforts to truly pay off for this epidemic. So what is this bullying epidemic all about. What are today’s students saying about bullying? Well in a recent study conducted by a bullying statistics website “there are about 2.7 million students being bullied each year by about 2.1 million students taking on the roll of the bully.” (Bullying......

Bully

...Bully is something that happened to be a normal part of a school life. People do not seem to realize that bully is physically and mentality harmful to both the victim and the bully. Bully issues happened once in my life and it had made me a stronger and a more attentive person. Previously, I was just a shy and an introverted girl, who don’t talk much in school. I always tend to keep quiet and sit at a side, trying to avoid teachers from calling my name in class. During lower primary school, everything was great. Things were running smoothly. But when it came to my fourth grade, things had changed. I remembered I was standing in the middle of the canteen, gripped my lunch tightly trying to squeeze myself to a seat. “Excuse me....sorry......” I said politely. Tried so hard to squeeze in but I failed and ended up standing helplessly. Out of nowhere, a gang of boys came towards me. I was scared and started to shiver in the inside. A tall boy, Ron, who was hunching his back strolled and stood in front of me. He stepped on my foot vigorously and gave me a wicked smile, while the his friends behind him snickered at me. I was shocked and I did not know what to do. Only thing that I thought was to finish my lunch quickly and get back to class. Surprisingly, my class teacher passed by the canteen. Looking at her as she walked by, wished to run up to her and tell her about the boys, but my heart controlled me from doing that. I was too coward and too afraid to do it. The......

...socially challenged bullies who possess what may be desired or valued by popular consensus among peers of similar sociodemographic background. Espelage and Holt (2001) in “Bullying and Victimization During Early Adolescence Peer Influences and Psychosocial Correlates” address social stratification within schools that enable more instances of bullying. This is basically an example for the haves versus the have-nots.. However, with this pattern of behavior in mind, what follows often results in victims becoming bullies themselves. In essence, these victim-bullies attack individuals they see as weaker, venting their own anger and insecurity Harris 2 via displacement on new victims versus at their original attackers. For the most part, this form of bullying is solely based on peer pressure and the promise of popularity or at the least relief from being bullied by bullying others (pp. 128-137). The Journal of the American Medical Association conducted a study surrounding the bullying epidemic in American schools. Students ranged from 6th to 10th grade. Of those students, 30% confirmed that they had engaged in bullying at one point in time, 13% of the respondents were bullies, 10.9% of the respondents were victims, and 6% had been victim-bullies. It was the conversion from victims (those abused) to bullies (abusers)......

...Paper #1 The movie “Bully” (2001) takes place in Florida and it involves the story of two childhood best friends, Bobby and Marty. In the film, the two characters are recently out of high school. Marty and Bobby are really close friends; they are always hanging out together. The relationship these two have is complicated due to the fact that Bobby is a very aggressive and abusive, both physically as well as mentally. Marty does not seem to be as smart as Bobby as it is revealed in the movie that Marty dropped out of high school, while Bobby is supposedly attending college. Bobby and Marty enjoy drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana as it is portrayed throughout the film. At the beginning of the film, Bobby and Marty meet Lisa and Ali. All of them end up meeting up at the beach to engage in sexual acts. Soon after, Lisa ends up becoming Marty’s girlfriend. The plot starts to build up and Bobby’s abusive behavior begins to show in many scenes. Some of these scenes include Bobby forcing Marty to go up on stage at a gay bar to make money for them and punching Marty over and over after he accidentally crashes Bobby’s car. One theory that is applicable to this film is Sutherland and Cressey’s Theory of Differential Association. Marty becomes emotionally distraught about Bobby’s years of abuse and doesn’t know what to do anymore as he is venting to Lisa. The idea comes up to kill Bobby, which Lisa is the one to introduce to Marty and they then begin to get more friends......

Theodore Roosevelt

...Theodore Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt is my favorite president. He may not be the greatest American president, but it is definitely the greatest American president in twentieth-century. Without Theodore Roosevelt, the United States would not be like this today. President Theodore Roosevelt was only president of the 20th century in the Mount Rushmore National Memorial with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. Scholars generally believe that he is a modern American shapers. In my opinion, he is the president of the president. In October 27, 1858, Theodore Roosevelt was born in New York City. His father is big bankers, exporters and importers in New York. Roosevelt family was living here since the 17th century. They got wealth from the import and export trade. However, Roosevelt’s childhood was not happily. He was suffer from Asthma in his early age. In order not to be bully by other children, his father forced him to training and learning boxing. In 1875, Roosevelt and several cousins played together with the fifteen sports to test physical fitness, including running, jumping, wrestling, and boxing. Roosevelt won fourteen victories and this made him very proud. This time, Roosevelt won a first victory on the road of life. He defeated the disease, beat himself. Nobody knows how much he pay effort. After a long hard workout, Roosevelt became physically and manually strong. A person can control their own bodies, what a dream cannot be achieved? In 1875,......

Roosevelt a Statesman ?

...Teddy Roosevelt a Statesmen ? Teddy Roosevelt was very well involved in the Congress way before he became the president of the United States. A 'Statesman' by definition is a person with an understanding of the principles of government who is actively engaged in conducting the 'business' of a government as well as introducing and shaping public policies. Teddy Roosevelt fits this description because he rolled up his sleeves and had a 'hands on approach' when it came to governing and administering policy. Teddy Roosevelt did many of the tasks which proves him to be a statesmen. As the Police Commissioner of N.Y.C he was aware of the indiscretions many police officers were engaged in such as getting drunk, gambling etc. So he used to walk the streets meeting up with these men and with his demanding presence told them to basically get their act together. His tactic was simple...speak plainly and to the point. For example, he would say something like 'have you taken a good look at yourself lately? 'don't you realize that you aren't in a position to respect the command of the people in the neighborhood? Roosevelt viewed his presidency as a 'stewardship of the people 'meaning that he believed that the president should control and use power in the best interests of the people. This belief was at the core of his policies which led to major reform legislation in the U.S. 'The Pure Food and Drug Act and The Meat Inspection Act of 1906' was directly related to Roosevelt's shock as he...
