The practical use for this amendment was obviously needed because the punishments used back in those early times was much more aggressive and cruel. The death rate that came with the amount of these punishments was out of hand, and obviously now we don’t see any cruel punishments like they used to. There are still cruel punishments but the amendment made them more suppressed and reduced the number of them drastically. The Amendment was a safeguard for the American people. And might not be seen as important anymore because you never see cruel punishment that often, but the reason you never see it is because of
However the true facts is that these texts, which are represented by famous publishers like McGraw-Hill and Prentice Hall are ignoring the facts about slavery and slave patrols. These text stride to give you the best context on the American judicial system, but did not talked about the event that started it all. Criminologist discuss in the journal that police officers are getting the most attention and given today’s policing history is essential to understand this systematic racism we called law enforcement. This journal deserve an 8 because it gets a good look at the lack of education about slavery in textbooks. I wish there was more history on slave patrols, but the criminologists made me think about policing today.
Although it listed several historical facts and interesting comparisons amongst various European nations, it almost felt as if I was reading a lecture rather than reading an argument.I would have like to see more experiences in the new land rather than what they were facing in the old, but I guess that will be another book. I would definitely recommend Manchild in the Promised Land to readers because if the foreword was so compelling I can only imagine the book! According to Brown (1965), “It seems that Cousin Willie, in his lying haste, had neglected to tell the folks down home about one of the most important aspects of the promise land: it was a slum ghetto.”I personally related to the passage because it made me think about my own family’s journey from the South to the North and their reasons for coming to the “big city”. Was it for a better education or the convenience of an indoor restroom? Was it a new job or rebellion against occupational tradition?
However, till now, the discussions have not led to a single correct answer concerning whether the death penalty justifies itself as the means of correction of criminals and reducing the crime rates. Despite the convincing arguments of the both sides of the conflict, modern society needs other, more humanistic, means of dealing with the crimes and the criminals since the issue of the death penalty is the leftover of the past that has to disappear in our society focused on the human well-being and
I also did horrible in the tests, but I was able to push through that and I managed to pass the class with a B. My weakness this year was probably not having enough sleep. I get cranky when I don’t get enough sleep, and I realized I can’t focus when I’m in class. My strength this year was probably becoming more organized and setting a specific schedule for myself everyday. Since I have to work, I need to make specific time for my homework.
In this case, distance in time helped to strengthen the perspective. Another challenge I encountered was that I had idealized sources in my mind that would have helped my argument, but in some cases they did not exist or were not accessible. I wanted a chance to examine Miller’s court conviction and hoped to find a transcript, however, I could not find it. I was so caught up in trying to find this one source that I imagined, that I ended up wasting time that could have been spent examining other sources or writing my IA. I ended up using a New York Times article that covered the conviction, and had useful information on the trial that proved very helpful, although it was not exactly what I had in
I realized I only had the opertunity to choose while there were still numbers on the time piece, otherwise I would die like this man, outside of paradise. Maybe I could flip a coin and heads would be the red road, tails would be the blue road, but I knew I needed to make the deccision myself, not leaving it to chance. I decided I would base my deccision off my favorite color which was red, But I realized again like I had ealrier about the other traverllers, feelings towards truth have no effect on truth. So I decided I needed to base my opinion in something else, something bigger than myself, and something bigger than my feelings. So I went searching, searching for whoever built the road hoping he would have answers for me, and under the bench I found a leather book, And on the cover it said "written by the archetect of the road."
Make High School Great Again Most adults remember high school as the best years of their lives; however, this is not the reality for students today. The majority of teenagers would agree that high school is currently dreadful, mainly due to the outrageous bulk of homework they receive each night. Homework is now consuming students’ lives, leaving no free time to have fun, attend extracurricular events, sports games etc. Homework is becoming a popular public debate because of the adverse effects it has on America’s teens. In fact, many studies have proven that abolishing homework has a positive outcome.
In a separate article, “The Truth About Homework,” Kohn asserts homework “isn’t even correlated with higher scores,” and “the only effect that does show up [due to increased homework] is more negative attitudes on the part of students who get more assignments.” Instead of helping students excel in school, homework is destroying their motivation and will to succeed. Also when discussing and analyzing the impact of homework on academic success, the demographics of those completing the homework also need to be considered. Often, serious students will complete their homework to earn
Staying up late to do homework could result in harmful habits and health issues caused from sleep deprivation. In addition many studies have brought up that the relationship between students and homework is toxic even though homework should be helping the students succeed. Countless teachers suggest that homework should be dependent on whether or not the student chooses to do it or not. This not only allows them to be incontrol of their grade, likewise teaches students responsibility and consequences/rewards for your choices and actions. Without homework there would be no more bloodshot eyes and “zombies” wandering throughout the
