Cloninger, Dylan Honors History 10 8/31/15 Response to Article Had you head of Cahokia before? What surprised you, if anything? I had never heard of Cahokia before reading this article. The one thing that surprised me the most about it is the fact that modern day textbooks barely take notice to its existence and that it is not a popular destination today. What misconceptions did Europeans have about the North American continent?
Race is not a predictive model for federal educational loan debt, therefore the model must be rejected. Factors that could have affect this model is the age of the population of the sample size. The respondents being born between 1980 and 1984 would have attended college in the late 1990’s to early 2000’s, one can argue that the reason race is not a predictive model based on the data is because the data is not relevant enough to present graduates. The student loan debt crisis is a more recent phenomena that requires more analysis to fully understand what factors exacerbate and contribute to the issue.
Never hold a juvenile at an adult facility. Juveniles subject to the original jurisdiction of the juvenile courts because of their age and offense cannot be held in jails and law enforcement lockups in which adults also may be detained or confined. 2. In what year and location was the first juvenile court established? Describe at least one negative element and at least one positive element of the new juvenile system at that time.
In the graphic novel, Iran, Marjane’s home, is being imperialized by Iraq. While this is happening, none of the people in Iran are fully aware of how to react because the country didn’t have a leader at the time. Marjane had to experience this imperialism during her teenage years and it played a large role in her perspective. To demonstrate this in the book, it says, “‘God did not choose the king.’[said Marjane’s father] ‘He did so! It’s written on the first page of our schoolbook’ [said Marjane]” (Satrapi 19).
One of the most inaccurate details of the movie was the fact that they used longbows, this is very ironic because the longbows didn’t even come out until the 15 century “The earliest known English reference to a "longbow" appears in the 15 century”. The second crusade was about 3 centuries after the longbows was invented. This being said, the movie was very inaccurate by putting in the longbows, making us assume that they were already made. People really didn’t even use the longbows until the past few years and now that they are becoming ice was not used until the early 1800s. So that being said it could not be possible for them to use ice in the second crusade being that the second crusade was in the 1100.
In the article, “What is the Age of Responsibility?” declares, “In America, ‘adulthood’ already has its familiar compass points, 18 and 21. But what is the age of responsibility? And what if that age… bears no resemblance to the ages already enshrined in law?” This explains that although the laws in America allows most “adult” activity at 18 and 21, the article questions what the true age of responsibility (which they define is the peak of adulthood) is, and whether that age matches the age the law has set for us. This is relevant to note because it shows that age restrictions that the law passes can never be accurate and emphasizes the concept that you cannot give adulthood an age. As each individual is being brought up, one’s experiences will change oneself different than another, which may result in one being maturing quicker than the other.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the United States Supreme Court issued a number of decisions that expanded the rights of children in juvenile court proceedings. The Court began extending due process rights to juveniles in Kent v. United States. The Court no longer accepted the premise that children should not have constitutional rights because of the special nature of the juvenile court. According to the Kent Court, "the child receives the worst of both worlds: that he or she gets neither the protections given to adults nor the solicitous care and regenerative treatment postulated for children" "(Kent v. United States 383 U.S. 541 (1966)", 2015, para 35). Although Kent involved no specific constitutional issues, the Court began focusing
There have been many issues in selecting one specific age to designate as the ‘Age of Majority’. Even though the human brain is finished developing at the age of 25, there truly is no age of responsibility due to confusion brought on by laws, the overwhelming amount of evidence to support a multitude of different ages, and the knowledge that every individual’s brain develops
This course could actually be further specified into more life-stages by for example age of the children, or a question if it is a two-parent household or only one (Hawks & Ackerman, 1990) but for the sake of this study, this was not done. On the otherhand, empty nesters are those where a parent has had children, but the child(ren) do not live at home anymore and neither do the children have any children on their own. Finally, a consumer can also be a grandparents where they have
This source is a scholarly essay discussing the rise in youth counterculture after World War II, and while relatively unbiased does not provide much information on the opinions of older generations from this time period, and generally lacks important first person knowledge. This source was presented at a meeting of the Historical Society and analyzes the development of a youth counterculture after World War II and the popularization of historical knowledge. It is limited because it provides little in the way of first person accounts of the time period. In summary, the sharp differences in principal beliefs between the Baby Boomers and older generations is what founded the youth counterculture, which was rooted in
Her research suggests that a chromosome abnormality is the most likely trigger, and begins to introduce itself during puberty stages. Her study showed that because of the chromosome abnormality, serial killers never developed a sense of attachment and belonging to the world. This is the main reason why serial killers do not empathize with their victims. Some of the patterns
The Social Work Policy Institute has a comprehensive section on adoption that gives the results of many studies done between 1996-2006, which all conclude overall that not having a permanent placement is likely to cause the child to have a negative outcome (2010). This would lead one to believe that these programs are scientifically sound. The CFCIP is using the National Youth In Transition Database, NYTD, to gather data about youth in care. They survey youth at ages 17, 19 and 21. Currently there is not a report available to prove or disprove the soundness of the program as the NYTD program has not been in effect long enough.
