David claims that “positive emotions also drive us to success, help us make better decisions, reduce the risk of disease and allow us to live longer.” Negative and positive emotions go hand in hand when it comes to success; however, unlike sadness, anger, or fear, happiness undeniably makes people live longer and healthier lives. As stated by Richard Schoch in his article, “A Critique of Positive Psychology,” people are always striving “to become happy by maximising pleasure and minimising pain” (452). Although, happiness is pleasurable and it is what every human longs for, there is still more benefit in mixed emotions, rather than all positive ones. There is benefit in both pleasure and in pain. In many cases, negative events in life make people more appreciative of the happy times when they come around.
Having an open mind is another characteristic people turn to when contemplating what an ideal person is. It shows that one is open to new ideas, suggestions and can see the opposing side of an argument. Appreciation is given to those with this trait because it is easier to reach agreements on important matters by both sides of the argument compromising. Machiavelli, on the other hand, prefers to be in control and tells people this in The Prince. Once again, he has a pessimistic outlook on what the optimal person is.
American Exceptionalism works under the idea that the U.S is unique when compared to all the other countries. In U.S politics, this is often interpreted to mean that the U.S is better than all other countries. This mindset causes problems when making decisions about how to interact with other countries. In an article from The National Interest, it talks about the U.S having a “rule-based foreign policy” that other countries should follow. While these rules are usually norms that are widely accepted and generally good, the U.S often breaks them.
Values of a nation is not only what distinct them from others, but to be an influence toward their behaviors. Americans always want to express their individuality by competing with others; they want to define themselves among many other Americans. Moreover, individualism within the America’s core values can be seen throughout the way American keeps their privacy. American likes to create quality time for themselves and think less about having to be with another person. Especially, Americans find it irritating when someone, maybe from another culture and don’t really understand their privacy, trying to cross a certain boundary.
Patient centered care is an approach of forming a therapeutic relationship between care providers, older people and families, mainly focusing on the values and respect (lenus). Care of which is respectful to an individual’s needs, values, social circumstances, lifestyles and family situations by putting them at the centre of care is a priority. This is a way of thinking and doing things in a way of using health and social services as partners. Meeting the needs of the older person include personalising the care of preference, taking account the physical comfort and safety of the individual and Making sure patient has access to appropriate care when they need it. Involvement of families is important as the centre of decisions, whilst working along side professionals for the best outcome.
Democracy is a system of government in which the power to govern is vested on the citizens. This power is exercised either directly wherein citizens reach a consensus to implement policies, or indirectly through the election of representatives who will act on behalf of the citizen's interest (Janda, Berry, Goldman, and Hula, 2012). In such states that have adapted democratic government, political participation is the hallmark of citizens' right and ability to exercise their power. The definition of political participation, as with all concepts of social sciences, is subject to debate since most social science concepts are subject to the changing norms of society and government. Thus, this paper defines political participation as a social phenomenon that takes on different forms which is used by citizens to influence government policies and politics.
Intercultural Communications Paper – The Arab Nations, a Polychronic Society Ilse Davison COMM 212 73416 Everyone in the world runs off of a time system. The sun rises and the sun sets and we all go through a day. What we do in that time between morning and night and night and morning is what differs across cultures.

The American Dream is most commonly known for freedom and individual success. The differences between time eras and changes throughout society are constantly making the American dream look different. It’s all about the different culture and events that happen. The way Americans react will shift quite a few viewpoints of life. Starting way back when in the 1920’s we see Fitzgerald take a stand with his book The Great Gatsby.
If they cannot protect themselves from violent visitors, hospital administrators need to step in and rectify the problem. Patient-centered care is all about prioritizing patients and families, but we need care nurses and healthcare professionals to be prioritized as well so their work is not affected by violence. Even though nurses and healthcare professionals are faced with these challenges, they still continue to want families and others to have the right to visit patients and I agree with them. Families and friends deserve to see their loved ones especially in the conditions that they are in. They can provide a sense of love and support and that can help patients get better in a way that nurses and healthcare professionals cannot.
Furthermore, nursing means knowledge of the current evidence-based practice to help a patient with the highest quality of care, but respecting patient’s wishes, if the wishes differ from current evidence-based care. Particularly important is the holistic view of a patient. Individuals do not live in a vacuum; family, society, cultural standards, and the connection to nature influence the patient and need consideration when caring for the patient. Personal nursing philosophy compared to Madeleine Leininger’s Theory of Culture Care Diversity and Universality Madeleine
Important linkage institutions include political parties, lobbies, special interest groups, and clubs and benevolent organizations.

Introduction We will consider the fast food restaurant chain of Chick-Fil-A. The company specializes in quick service boneless chicken breast sandwiches and chicken nuggets. They were founded in 1946 by Mr. Truett Cathy in Hapeville, GA just outside of the Atlanta area (Chick-Fil-A Fact Sheet, 2015). The company has over 1900 locations with over 1300 being stand-alone restaurants (Chick-Fil-A Fact Sheet, 2015). They operate in 42 states and the District of Columbia and generated over $6 billion in revenue in 2014 (Chick-Fil-A Fact Sheet, 2015).
In Jessica Naudziunas’ article “Where in the World Are there No McDonald 's?” we can see my history teacher 's point being shown. She wrote ”The company has 34,480 restaurants in 119 countries, including Cuba and France, where it 's especially beloved”. In regards to Mcdonald’s and the American Identity “the fast food industry has helped to transform not only the American diet, but also our landscape, economy, workforce, and popular culture” (Schlosser, Fast Food Nation). This quote shows that not only do others see our business as an identity but we see it ourselves. With American Capitalism expanding we are also spreading our identity.
