Double Standards: Ignorance and Racism Fueled by Media With the recent increase in self-made public news videos, there is a slight blur in the reality of what truly happens. Many people only see the side the news or the public wants them to see and they do not dig any further to reveal any other known facts about the case. In today's time what people see on the news is what they think "actually" happened. The news has the ability to change and edit videos to show what they want to be seen. The news fuels the public into thinking that racism is the only thing that is being produced from the villainous acts they are reporting on, but ignorance is also a prime outcome from these acts. The news fails to report on ignorance because they want stir the public's emotions. Stirring the public's emotions give the news another story to report on. With the recent verdict in the Ferguson Vs. Missouri case, the public demonstrated un-peaceful protest. This give the news a story for every night of the week. The more the news reports on racism, the more the crowd protests. These protests are based on the news report of racism in the death of teenager Michael Brown in the suspected "race crime shooting" by a Ferguson Police Officer. The Police Officer was called to the scene of a robbery where he then confronted Michael Brown. Brown then proceeded to reach for the Officer's gun which resulted in the Ferguson Police Officer firing upon Brown. The media portrayed Brown as an angel child, when in reality he was a thug. He was a part of a gang, did drugs, and participated in many crime filled activities. The media also portrayed this as a race crime because it was a white officer shooting a black teenage boy. The media does not report that after the verdict has been released, that people took the streets in protest.…...

...Impacts of a borderless society Unit 6 Assignment Professor Robert P Black, MS I am a serious bargain shopper. I try to save wherever I can. That usually means buying products from a mega chain, whose items are usually from outside of the U.S., verses buying from a local “mom and pop” store. The local stores usually have higher prices than most of the larger chain stores. I have never really understood why. For my family, buying all our food locally can be a challenge sometimes. My husband is Asian and he refuses to let go of some of the Asian food items he loves. For example, he has to have bok choy instead of green cabbage from right here. Rice is another issue for us. It has to be jasmine rice from a South East Asian country. He swears there is a difference. In my opinion, it all tastes the same….bland. List all of the components of two of your meals.

Ec301 (Park Univ.) Week Three Homework Answers

...Homework Week 3 Answers The homework is worth 20 points, so each answer will have points distribution at the instructor’s discretion. Chapter 8 (a through e) Problem 1 a. Given that the nominal wage rate equals 50, the equation for the short-run aggregate supply curve is Y = 11,250 – 20(50) 1,000P = 10,250 + 1,000P. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals 2 is 10,250 + 1,000(2) = 12,250. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals 1.25 is 10,250 + 1,000(1.25) = 11,500. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals 1 is 10,250 + 1,000(1) = 11,250. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals .8 is 10,250 + 1,000(.8) = 11,050, and it equals 10,250 + 1,000(.5) = 10,750 when the price level equals .5. The points on the short-run aggregate supply curve are: (10,750, 0.5); (11,050, 0.8); (11,250, 1.0); (11,500, 1.25); and (12,250, 2.0). b. Given that the nominal wage rate equals 50, the equation for the short-run aggregate supply curve is Y = 11,250 – 20(50) + 1,000P = 10,250 + 1,000P. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals 2 is 10,250 + 1,000(2) = 12,250. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals 1.25 is 10,250 + 1,000(1.25) = 11,500. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals 1 is 10,250 + 1,000(1) = 11,250. The amount of short-run aggregate supply when the price level equals .8 is...

Given that the interest rate has been 4 percent for the last ten quarters, then for IS curve I, real GDP equals 8,800 − 25(4) − 25(4) − 25(4) − 25(4) − 20(4) − 20(4) − 20(4) − 15(4) − 15(4) − 10(4) = 8,000. For IS curve II, real GDP equals 8,400 − 5(4) − 5(4) − 5(4) − 5(4) − 10(4) − 15(4) − 15(4) − 15(4) − 20(4) = 8,000. b.

Nat’l Collegiate Athletic Ass’n, 417 F.Supp. 885 (D.Co. 1976). Because DU refused to enforce the ineligibility of several of its hockey players despite the NCAA’s declaration of such, the DU hockey team was put on a two-year probation period, all DU athletic teams were unable to participate in post-season NCAA events and have its regular season games be televised, and the University was forced to forfeit its 1973 national title. 570 F.2d at 321.

Univ/100 Week 3 Assignment

...Colleges offering to help graduates repay their loans More and more colleges are offering to help graduates repay their loans if, after they graduate, they secure employment making less than $40,000.00 per year. This is a great idea! Just the thought of having to repay thousands of dollars after graduating can become overwhelming for some, but the opportunity to have the college help repay your loans takes some of that anxiety away and would make it a little easier to make the decision to further your education by going to college. If a person moves directly into a high paying position after graduating college, that’s great, but that’s never a guarantee. At least with this program, there’s a cushion in place, just in case you are not fortunate enough to fall into a high paying position straight out of college. (c) USA TODAY, 2011 Colleges offer grads help repaying loans Authors: Mary Beth Marklein; USA TODAY Source: USA Today; 06/13/2011 There are options available to you if you’re having trouble repaying your student loans Times are rough, employment is down, and finding a job after you graduate from college may not be as easy as expected. Although most Federal student loan programs offer a 6 month grace period, after you graduate, before you have to start repaying your loans … in these times, you may need more time than that. In this case, there are options out there, to help you stay on track and not fall into default on your loans. Forbearance,......
