Part 1
With underdeveloped senses, divisions of right and wrong, and confinement with their lack of self-identity what are the psychological, emotional, and social effects of incarceration on a juvinile, how little the corrections facilities actually rehabilitate the youth, the issues concerning juvenile corrections and how these and other factors contribute to the youth’s mindset both during and after prison. Part 2 * Haney, Craig. “Prisoners Once Removed.” http://www.prisonexp.org/pdf/haney.pdf,

This source is a scholarly article converted to PDF, and is thoroughly cited from other articles. It talks about imprisonment on individual and state levels, describing the impact of the United States prison system psychologically on prisoners. Other articles I have found on the internet have cited this article frequently, many who seek to reform the prison system have used this article against the consequences of the prison system, especially on youth.

Matsuda discusses the impact of incarceration on youth, basically what my article is about, in a research paper for The U.S department of Justice. The paper utilizes Californian inmates, age 16-25 males, released between 1998 and 99, based on information obtained from the California department of corrections. * Fagan, Jeffery; Kupchik, Aaron. “Juvenile Incarceration and the Pains of Imprisonment.” http://scholarship.law.duke.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1017&context=dflsc, 29 March 2011, Web. 24 November 2014

Pre-Diabetes

...Deborah Landowski July 12, 2012 Cheryl Matheis Objective Research Essay Pre-diabetes Are you very hungry? Are you very thirsty? Are you tired or don’t get enough sleep? Are you overweight or lack daily exercise? These are just a few symptoms you may experience if your body is trying to tell you something. You need to know what your body is saying and more importantly listen to it. Unfortunately, our body does not always tell us what we need to know; pre-diabetes is most often a silent condition with no symptoms. Pre-diabetes is when your blood sugar level is between 100 and 125 milligram per deciliter. A simple blood test can tell if you have pre-diabetes and detect if you are at risk of developing the lifelong disease of type 2 diabetes. According to health professionals at revolution health, the process begins when the pancreas can’t make enough insulin and/or when the body’s tissues can’t use insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that helps the body’s cells use sugar “glucose” for energy. It also helps the body store extra sugar in muscle, fat, and liver cells (Rea, 2008). Most people with pre-diabetes do not have any symptoms but if diagnosed; can delay and in most instances can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a warning sign that you are at risk for getting type 2 diabetes, meaning that your blood sugar is higher than it......

Food for Thought

...Case 11-7: Food for Thought The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Allfoods Corporation: Allfoods Corp. acquired 80% of the outstanding common stock of Baked Beans Corp in a business combination on February 1, 2009. Allfoods paid $40 million in cash and issued two million shares of Allfoods common stock to the selling shareholders of Baked Beans. Allfoods stock options will replace all outstanding stock options granted to Baked Beans employees as required by the merger agreement. This transaction has been accounted for in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations. We have determined that consideration transferred amounts to $135 million, land and buildings should be recorded using the “in-use” valuation premise and intangible assets should be recorded at fair value. The following pronouncements have been used in making our decision: ASC 718, ASC 805-10-25-23, ASC 805-20-25-4, ASC 805-20-30-6, ASC 805-30-25, ASC 805-30-30-7, ASC 805-30-30-9, ASC 805-30-30-11, ASC 820-10-35-10, ASC-820-10-35-11.

Consideration transferred may include cash, other tangible and intangible assets, business and subsidiary of acquirer, contingent consideration, equity instrument etc. Common......

...It was around Christmas when my dad asked me to run an errand with him because his car had broken down. We got in the car and I drove normally. I was about to cross an intersection when the light turned yellow and was about to turn red, my dad told me to hit the break but my adolescent mind did exactly the opposite. I thought I had enough time to make it across, turns out I didn’t. I don’t remember much after that, everything happened so fast it all just seems like a really wicked dream. I woke up about 7 hours later in a hospital with my mother by my side crying her eyes out. I guess I was still heavily sedated that I couldn’t really move anything more than my eyelids. I wanted to move but my body was unresponsive. I just closed my eyes and went back to sleep. I awoke a day later and my mother told me my father had suffered serious injuries and was in intensive care and he might not make it. I could not help but feel responsible for what my dad was going through. If he died I would have to live with the memory that my irresponsible actions were the cause of his dead, I would forever be haunted with the fact that I killed my own father. We all have defining moments in our life, moments that change our future and redefine our past. It’s actually kind of sad that most of those moments have to hurt us or impact us in a negative manner. I guess it’s just human nature to wait until we get hurt to learn our lesson. I felt helpless as I could not do anything to aid my......

Thoughts

...A thought, as defined by the oxford dictionary is “An idea or opinion produced by thinking, or occurring suddenly in the mind. It is common to hear a person say that, “I had a thought about X the other day.” Thoughts are usually short lived, discrete events. Everyone experiences thoughts and have no problem identifying them. Thought can refer to the ideas or the arrangement of ideas that result from thinking, the act of producing thoughts, or the process of producing thoughts. Thoughts are the result or product of spontaneous act of thinking. Thoughts, especially in humans, are not that independent, they can be much more complicated and it can appear to be nothing as it seems. All the information received by the mind triggers a chain of thoughts. Edward Chace Tolman, a great experimentalist and a theoretician in psychology was the first to demonstrate thought influence action. After Tolman, a psychologist Roger Shepherd showed that people can actually manipulate thoughts or mental representations. Thoughts are electro-chemical reactions taking place in the brain, but the number and the complexity of these reactions makes it hard to completely understand these reactions. Because thought underlies many human actions and interactions, understanding it’s physical and metaphysical origins, processes and ......

...to hold forever. The stars and you are the same. You are beautiful but only at a distance. And kissed me like sending a thousand lightning on my spine. I tasted salt in your mouth as if you drank the waters of the ocean; good thing you didn’t drown. My skin had blood marks on because you held me so tight that winter night. But that didn’t matter because I love you. And I mean it. -End- It’s a little bit funny how I cut fringes out of my long hair And I would feel very sad every time I look at the mirror. Like I was carry kettle bells with each of my finger I thought every girl in school was perfect and not fat And I curse myself for not being alike. I wasn’t good with words spoken or written, and I was ashamed of myself every time I stood in front to say , perhaps stutter. I look above with a beaten heart. The stars at night became my mother. My father was the moon. Or so I thought. As days went by, I became even sadder. I kept on dropping hints Of sadness and they fall like nothing. As nobody noticed....

Pre-Production: Social Acceptance

...with in the future? Pre-Production my Independent study. My second block class, my chance to take time for myself to learn, having no teachers just me and no one else helping me out. Film, my dream career to be a director. I learned something about myself during this class that actually surprised me, when you get down to the real film work there is so much more than people realize. I thought that originally when you have a film all you do is say “Hey I want this idea to be a movie” then the company is like “Okay your idea will be a movie for this amount of money” Then “Okay we need actors and a script” They get all of that then they film then edit and distribute. Many times doing my research I came across the phrase “Pre-Production is the most important stage of filmmaking” Every time I looked at that I just thought well what makes it so important? Then I thought about it, if you look at Pre-Production without looking at your entire project you just think back breaking long exhausting work, but truth be told Pre-Production is the most important step of all of the five stages. I am even experiencing that right now with a film I am directing. Yes it is true that Pre-Production is long exhausting work that does feel like you are going to tear out your hair any minute. What I found many times while researching is that if you don’t do the Pre-Production stage your movie will be in seriously in trouble once you get in post-production. Why? Well if you don’t do Pre-Production what......

Nature of Thought

...Nature of Thought David Dawson PHL/251 26 May 2014 Abeba Salter-Woods Nature of Thought I think a lot about what it means to be in thought and how an outcome of an individual’s action is exemplified on how they took the time to actually think about what they are doing. In life, as humans, we are challenge through many different scenarios that requires us to put time and effort into thinking things through. That thinking process is the foundation of the aftermath of these scenarios. To me, human thinking is unique because we are one of a kind. I don’t believe that there is another species out there that is capable of producing results that we, as humans, are able to come up with. Other mammals might have brains that allow them to think, but not to the capacity or liking to what I believe is necessary to survive on this planet. According to “Www.ask.com” (2014), “Human thinking is unique because as far as we know, we are the only living creatures who can think and put our thoughts into action. We are the only ones who think before we act. We express our thoughts because it is human nature to want to explore and to learn.” Humans express their thought through their actions. To make are thoughts more realistic, we feel that we have to witness or perform it first hand. A thought will always remain a thought if not utilize. Most of the things that humans think about is normally fantasies and actions that need to or want to be performed, hence the reason on why we act on......

Pre-Class Survey

...Jessica Hoover Pre-class Survey HCS 320 Communication is sharing ideas and information with other individuals. An individual’s thinks that communication is a written or even oral form but it can be much more than that. Communication can be a touch on the shoulder, a certain look you may give, and it can be someone slapping another person. Communication can be define as a transmitting, exchanging, or giving information, gestures, or even signals. Communication can also be defined as a quick telephone call or even through a radio. There are two types of communication, which is non-verbal and verbal. Non-verbal is transferring information without talking such as writing information down on paper. Some people may not think about non-verbal communication that we see every day, one example a red light or a stop sign. Body language and facial expressions is another form of non-verbal communication. Verbal we talk through our mouths to communicate to one another. Another form of verbal is animals, some may chirp when mating season comes along, the birds sing, and dogs bark when they want something or inform you when someone is walking through the door. As you can see, there is different form way of communicating not just use humans either. Today a lot people communicate through the internet and television also.

...catching an attitude. Especially when someone asks me for my two cent and they go against what I tell them. The Last one is Judging. I try not to judge many people. The impressions that people tend to give me, sometimes give me the reason to judge them. I know half the time it is wrong to do. For example, I cannot stand to see any woman in pajama pants outside the house. I think it is very nasty for a woman, to come out of the house like that straight out of the bed. My personality type consist of these types of characteristics: skeptical, often stubborn, critical, independent, and determined. Under most circumstances my day-to-day thoughts are consistent with these traits. Self-management is an important trait when dealing people that tend to get within your circle. Self-management can also mean to be able control your emotions, thoughts, professionalism, temper, and the way you communicate with others....

Pre School

...Akosua Adomako Hillary Gallego English 1301-73481 April 15, 2016 Pre School I have always thought teaching pre-school was the easiest job any teacher could have since children were adorable and mostly fun. It was until I visited a cousin who happens to be pre-school teacher that I realized exactly what teaching these adorable children entailed but I now know the teaching profession is to me the hardest no matter the level being taught. It was a beautiful Friday morning when I arrived with my cousin at a small elementary school. It was about 7 am when these stunning kids started to troop into their class. The atmosphere was precious as some were quite happy to have another day of school and others were whinny to part with their parents. But the cheerful voice of my cousin Miss Mills was enough to make them happy again. They began with their rhymes which reminded me of my days in pre-school I joined in from time to time when they said a rhyme I was familiar with and they filled my heart with gladness that I could actually remember the words. After their recitation, she marked attendance and the star pupil for the week got to choose a book out of selection which Miss Mills was to read to them. As I sat at the back I attentively watching the children a thought crossed my mind that could this day get any better because she had them just the way she wanted them but little did I know that worst was yet to come. I marvelled at the enthusiathism of the......

Pre Class Survey

...Pre-Class Survey Angel Reed HCS 320 November 20, 2011 Dixie Poe Pre-Class Survey 1. What is communication? Communication can be in many forms such as written, verbal/audio, through the media, and visual; but essentially it is when someone is trying to convey a message clearly to one or more persons. Babies communicate through there noises and facial expressions before they can talk or write.

The purpose of communication is to convey a mutual understanding from the sender to the receiver to be able to show how you feel, how to do something, or even to show one’s dismay with someone else. Communication is to get to know co-worker’s to know what is going on, to develop friendships, to teach our children how to communicate with others. Communication is for everyday life if we do not communicate with others we would not be able to even just giving a polite hello to a stranger on the street. 3. What is good communication?
