The staff that stayed over got overloaded with the work, which caused the high turnover. La Alianza couldn’t afford to pay higher salaries to retain the staff, due to the low rates of reimbursements from the DSS. The inexperienced and newly graduated case workers had a heavy caseload. The newly graduated case workers failed to find the basic investigation details, such as if parents were lying, or if children were being abused or not. In addition, DSS required time-consuming paperwork with the extremely heavy workload.
One of the first steps that I had taken when I approached this weeks assignment was to determine how the article had fit into my research topic. While it was difficult as I remained intent on finding the articles that dealt with Transnational Criminal Organizations and Terror groups, the search was made a bit easier with the APUS library. After I had located the articles I believed I was going to be using one of the next steps was to determine the articles content, I had questioned the content as well as what the author was trying to convey. As was described in the lesson this week as well as seeing the example given, I made an outline as well as placed them in my own words. What my criteria was in order to determine what was appropriate was, the keyword as well as content.
Each of these concepts can give support to a writing piece and help appeal to your audience. In my narrative essay, I believe that pathos would have been the best concept for me to add to my piece. This is because I would want the reader to be able to feel and connect with the emotions I was having when I was losing an argument. To put them in my shoes, I would need to share with them the emotions I was feeling so they could feel empathy for me. Logos was also used for when I gave my reasoning as to why I believed that I lost the argument.
At first I wanted to argue with his ‘one story’ ideology, Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead got inside my head I suppose. However as he continued to engage with it, providing examples of how past works foster and provide a way to increase the depth of a story, I started to appreciate it more. It wasn’t that he was saying good literature only comes from traces of older works, and then adding their own traces to be applied similarly to new works. What he meant was that literature is emotions and experiences that tell what it means to be human, and as people evolve over time so does literature. In both there is a history to keep drawing from that impacts what happens from there on out.
If I would have been asked that question I would be part of that percentage of people who don’t believe that it is still achievable anymore. Most people are just generally outworked for it because they are more eager to get it and when that happens other people tend to quit. It is also hard to keep your spirits up with a huge student debt on your back, and it’s not even their fault either because they have to try to become skilled in a trade because in some areas people are getting fired due to machines taking jobs over. While most people don’t even have enough money to support their dream because of how much it may cost. Those are some of the reasons why the American Dream is too out of reach for most people.
James Horn theory is very evident throughout the book: Jamestown’s failure was inevitable. Horn listed many details in which he backed up with his ideas, concepts, and even conversations in the text as to why he believed this theory. Although some of Horn’s arguments do not reconcile with information that I know of Jamestown, I believed this book to be thorough and vivid in his arguments. This book helped me to understand better of how Jamestown came along, and all the events to follow for the
People were afraid and concerned since they had a major insufficiency of jobs, supplies and shelter. Many companies began to enforce wage cutbacks and increased workload. Relief was not being offered to all the unfortunate Canadians who did not have a job. Many people were laid off from factories which meant that supplies were scarce as not many people could afford to provide for their family’s, people turned to the government to find a solution. I believe that their expectations were much too high as the government was struggling too.
I agree that as a result of the way people think, it is difficult to put that normal state of mind aside. I agree with David Foster Wallace in the belief that figuring out how to be well-adjusted is the opportunity of true education. Wallace’s speech has changed my perceptions because after a long school day, I get very tired and just is not paying attention to the things that I need to be paying attention to. His speech is important for its larger implications on the world-at-large. If everyone would listen to his speech, it could definitely change the world.
I 'm actually torn on this issue. The current price tag to support the homeless, or possibly even the underemployed, is enormous, and what we 've been doing clearly isn 't working. Changes to how we live, and technology have rendered many jobs obsolete, or soon to be obsolete so can 't expect people to work in unskilled jobs when those jobs don 't exist anymore. There will always be people who cannot support themselves due to mental or physical challenges, and society should ensure that they are provided for. There will also always be those who, due to an event or situation, find themselves without a home or means to provide for themselves; these people need assistance for a relatively short period of time.
They feel that they are overworked having to do a lot of policing as well as non-policing functions, considering the fact that there is an acute shortage of police staff. Poor working conditions, lack of adequate resources, poor infrastructure, political interference etc. add to their woes. Public demand has become multifarious and expectations are high. More often than not the police find it very difficult to meet such burgeoning expectations be it due to lack of adequate personnel or lack of adequate resources.
