Hi, need to submit a 1500 words paper on the topic Compare and contrast how Gregory Howard Williams and one of the other authors (Malcolm Gladwell or James McBride from the Half and Half) are able to achiev. This situation gets more bitterer when the societal foundation is based on racism and color supremacy. Life on the Color Line is indeed a very touching and sensitive account of how prejudices can affect a person deeply. The first ten years of his life Williams grew up believing that he was a white. Understandably this might have given him a security that every child needs. This also gave him the advantage of being brought up in a society which was entitled for privileges. After his parents’ separation he shifted to Muncie, Indiana where he came to know the most violent truth about his life. His father by marrying into a white family had crossed all the boundaries the society had laid. It would have been easy for Williams to follow the norms for entirely black or entirely white society. However the question of his very existence that stood in front of him with more and more ferocity. At an age where most kids are indulged, pampered he was forced to face a turmoil that was to change his life forever. He had been to Muncie to visit his white relatives who now shunned the children. He had no other alternative than to take a refuge in the black community. Neither of the sections of the society was kind to the kids. The blacks had little to spare and often bore a grudge towards them. Whites had already outcaste them as racial mongrels. As put by Williams himself, “though only ten years old I faced one of the hardest choices of my life, to dream or to despair. I chose to dream”. He worked diligently to achieve his dreams and correctly took refuge in education. Williams and his brother worked their way hard towards the betterment of their life. However he was more than often subjected to the inequalities and brutalities of racism. Denial of academic awards because he was black, violence inflicted by his fellow students, is to name a few.

Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Foresight of Hong Kong logistics development. It needs to be at least 1500 words. With the seventh largest stock exchange, Hong Kong enjoys large market capitalization.The growth in the economy of Hong Kong has been as a result of foresight in logistic development. The high population density plus its position in mainland China has forced the government of Hong Kong to plan and develop effective logistic to drive economic growth. Logistics in Hong Kong responsible for growth include, a good transportation network, development of a free economy, low taxation, good government policies and a good communication network.Hong Kong is situated at the heart of mainland Asia. Located at the Southern doorstep of China, it is within a 5 hour flight period from most of the other Asian countries, thus having access to about half of the population of the world (Li, 2007). The location of Hong Kong has also led it to act as the gateway for trade to and from southern China. The location has granted Hong Kong access to the Pearl River Delta, where over 31% of the Mainland’s export products are manufactured (LOGSCOUNCIL, 2013). Its location also allows Hong Kong to access a large supply of labor from neighboring areas. The region has an abundant supply of both skilled and unskilled laborers that facilitate business growth, both local and international.Hong Kong instituted CEPA (Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement) which lets local and foreign-owned corporations within Hong Kong to access the various opportunities that the fast growing Chinese market offers. This partnership also allows service providers to take advantage of the fastest growing service market in terms of logistics, transport sales agency, freight forwarding and road and maritime transport, and set up businesses in the Mainland (GovHK, 2013).
Compose a 2000 words assignment on music publishing. Needs to be plagiarism free! es the notes that give rise to a rhythm, and the term music in real life application denotes a mixture of the notes and accompaniments to make it pleasing to the ear (Arnold, 2009:1-2). In most cases, songwriters assign their composition to publishing companies who solicit for potential performers, but only in a few cases do composers go beyond composition to performance. The performers play a critical role because they introduce a song to the market, but it takes the efforts of a team of artists according to Frith for the song to stand in the market (2002:205).In order to understand to appreciate the role played by the performer, it is essential to examine the stringency of the songwriter. Some stringent songwriters attach conditions to their composition, which usually determine the level of creativity and autonomy that the performer can use to make the masters stand out in the market (Kohn, and Kohn, 2010:193). Composers who leave a performer with little space for creativity often limit the uniqueness of the song (Gammons, 2012:56). If composers allow the performers to exercise creativity and alter the composition, the performer can produce a unique performance (Gowers, 2006:50). For this unique performance to result, the performer relies on the expertise of multiple artists including guitarists, drummers, and pianists (Talbot, 2000:88).Music recording has moved from the traditional composer to performer chain with the emergence of electronic recording altering the scenes in recording (Arnold, 2009:4). Electronic recording has brought new realms of possibilities enabling the release of a performance into the market before transcription of the composition. In this process, different artists work together to produce the piece. The collaborative process brings new challenges to the front (Arnold, 2009:5). The author’s piece becomes subject to rearrangement by the artists.
Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on economics and business strategies: competitive advantage in professional sports. One of the popular measures of competitive balance is the actual square root of the variance of win-ratios of a certain season and it is compared with the mean root square deviation of the win ratios in the most ‘appropriate’ case where the wins are allocated in a random manner (Owen, Ryan, and Weatherston, 2005, pp.4-5). According to Zimbalist, the professional sports teams participating in a league both corporate and compete with each other. The success of the competition is dependent upon the degree of uncertainty of outcomes. It can be stated differently as the degree of competition among the team’s acts as a factor in the success of a league. (Zimbalist 2003, Sports as Business, pp. 503). By perfect competition, economists define a market structure under some assumptions which are unlikely to exist in the real world scenario. It talks about a market where the market power of the participants is limited to set the price of a homogeneous product. Some of its characteristics include an unlimited number of buyers and sellers, factors are free to move, and perfect information exists to all the participants. When a firm is able to gather higher levels of profits than the average of all other firms existing in its industry, a situation of competitive advantage is said to exist for the firm and it is of mainly two types namely advantage over costs and differentiation advantage. To attain a successful sporting outcome it is required to maintain a certain degree of competitive balance which is described in the hypothesis of “uncertainty of outcome”. Gate sharing revenue is one of the popular means of improving competitive balance. This means is very common to knock out competitions. However, some other means of improving the competitive balance include salary caps and luxury taxes. The Major League Baseball adopted an equal splitting of gate receipts which were reduced with time. .
I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Plato’s Republic. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Plato seems to follow a different practice. More specifically, in Republic politics and political institutions are analyzed and evaluated without a direct reference to human nature. However, if studied carefully the Republic reveals a close relationship between human nature and politics. For this reason it would be wrong to claim that Plato did not take into consideration human nature when developing his explanations for politics. rather Plato incorporated his views on human nature in his dialogues so that human nature is explained simultaneously with politics. The particular practice is analyzed below aiming to show that in Republic human nature has been the basis for the explanations for political institutions, even if the relationship between these two concepts is not always clear.Plato’s Republic has been developed in order to explain the role and the elements of politics, as appeared in the particular era. Still, the Republic is not fully related to politics. it can be also used in order to understand human nature. A thorough review of Republic would help to verify the importance of human nature for Plato. Of course, the Republic is a text dedicated to politics. however, it is the study of politics that helps readers to understand also the thinking and the social life of individuals in the particular period. The direct relationship between the politics and the human nature, as this relationship is reflected in Republic, can be understood by referring, indicatively, to certain parts of Republic.In the first volume of Republic, in book A, Socrates discusses with Kefalos, the father of Polemarhos. In the above dialogue Kefalos notes that he now, that he is quite old, enjoys the discussion more than when he was younger (328d). For this reason, he asks from Socrates to visit Piraeus more often so that he has the chance to discuss with him.
Create a 6 pages page paper that discusses micro and macroeconomic conditions of a business. The factor to be considered is the supply-demand aspect. This should be done with little interference to the core agenda of profit maximization. While finding equilibrium between the supply and demand factors of production which include labour and capital should be considered as well. The internal factors should integrate well with external factors in ensuring that an informed decision is made. The strategies involved should satisfy the internal market while aiming at benefiting from the diseconomies of scale. A lower cost per unit will be achieved by increasing the size of the firm. . .In some instances, the government decides in borrowing from the private sector. The result is reduced power to spend by the manufacturing firms as the available funds focus more on ensuring a balanced in their profit-making goals and reduced expenditure. The government, on the other hand, borrows from the sector to reduce the government deficit. The result of borrowing from the sector is reducing the spending power of the firms. The firm should critically analyse the government decisions to borrow from them as a means of increasing the aggregate demand (Grossman & Hart, 1986). The firm should consider its internal goals before falling victim to government policies. The firms should decide on which policies are to be adopted and which are to be ignored. Adjusting to these policies may assist the firm operates at equilibrium with all other factors kept constant. The other policies by the government may include the increase in bank rates offered by the central bank as a means of reducing the amount of money in the supply. The result increases the interest rates that eventually reduce the rate of borrowing. The result may be reduced funding to the firm. The firm should counter this by ensuring there are several avenues of raising funds rather than profit plough back (Holmstrom, 1999). The expansion of any given firm depends majorly on its market advantage and a large pull of resources.
You will prepare and submit a term paper on Effective and Rational Ways Resolution of Conflict. Your paper should be a minimum of 3500 words in length. The resources will be distributed fairly and not directed to fighting their adversaries. The people in of Afghanistan have for nearly three decades experienced nothing but war and this has also led to the dilapidation of infrastructures in the place. The ending of this conflict between them and Pakistan will help in improving the economy as the resources will be assigned to other important sectors in the country rather than the world. The end of these conflicts will also reduce the humanitarian crisis that faces the people in these regions and this will improve the health standards of people around (Conference paper 2005).According to the existing literature, if states are caught up in a trap of endless low-intensity warfare, it is due to poverty, ancient ethnic trends or greed from the neighbors for the precious resources in the country. In the Never-ending Wars, Hironaka (2008) sets the record straight by pointing at the responsibility of the international community. Using statistical evidence, Ann looks at the causes of long durations of war by examining how the natural environment contributes to transforming local grievances into long-term civil wars. There is continued unaccountability of the continuing civil wars and this helps to fuel the existing wars in the present country. Lack of organization in the said country, lack of resources, poor bureaucratic mechanism and the inability of the countries to enforce law and order are among the issues that are continuously eliciting more and more crisis as there are no mechanisms to help them control their borders. State weakness has also been seen to contribute to the long-term civil wars as they are often underdeveloped in terms of economic and political institutions. . .
You will prepare and submit a term paper on Extending the school. Your paper should be a minimum of 2000 words in length. On the contrary, some may propose for a longer school day in order to create time for further studies.Disagreements over the extension of the school day are likely to arise mostly from the students. A change in the time schedule will create tension in the school as some will oppose while others propose for the extension of the school day. In order to create harmony between the two sides, genuine reasons have to be given as to why the school day is being extended (Alessandro, 2002). This can only be achieved by coming to an agreement after a detailed consultation. The consultations must involve every sector in that learning institution including the workers in the school.A big controversy is likely to arise from the students if the school day is extended. Some students will tend to oppose the issue of extending the school day as this will limit the time they have for resting. Some will claim to be tired after the long working hours of the day therefore extending the school day will be an added burden to them. They will therefore do their best in trying to oppose the extension of the school day (Begue, 2006). This is because they would like to have some time to rest.A drastic change in the scheduled time will create tension among all the sectors in the learning institution. This is because the extension of the school day will affect the time they have for other activities outside school. Most of the students are involved in sporting activities after school while others get to assist their parents back at home. Disputes are therefore likely to arise from the students as their time will be taken by the extension of the school day. Students also need some extra time to complete their assignments given by the teacher during the day (David, 2012).Extending the school day will therefore create tension as the students will have inadequate time to complete their assignments.
Need an research paper on explore how the theme of suffering is presented in out, out and disabled. Needs to be 7 pages. Please no plagiarism. The poem shows him sitting in a wheelchair and pondering over his past, comparing it with his present. Since the poem has been written in 1917, it can be construed that the author is referring to World War-I. On the other hand, the poem, “Out, Out” (1916), written by Robert Frost speaks of the suffering of a young boy, who accidentally gets his hand chopped off while cutting logs with a buzz saw in his yard and subsequently succumbs to his injury in a hospital. This poem does not refer directly to the war but it symbolizes the turmoil of World War-I, as can be deciphered from the time it is written. Both poems illustrate the theme of human sufferings through the anguish of the young protagonists, as a consequence of war, though they are different on many perspectives.The young man in Owen’s poem has been a football player, who often enjoyed the pleasure of “being carried shoulder-high” by his fans, obviously after he wins a match or scores a goal.1 He reminisces about the slimness of the girls’ waist and the warmth of “their subtle hands” that he has cherished in the past.2 Later, he gets drafted in the army, apparently out of a youthful fancy for adventure rather than as a result of a mediated decision. Due to an injury, his limbs are amputated and he gets relegated to a wheelchair. Owen chooses the theme of the perils of war to depict the extent of suffering it can inflict on humans. By using an anonymous character, the author alludes to the fact that his case is just one among many. On the other hand, the young boy in Frost’s poem is not a hero, nor he had gone to wars or laid girls. However, he endures the same kind of suffering that the former does, by the so called quirk of fate. His suffering primarily has derived from a lack of care on the part of his family, which comes in the form of his hard work, sawing logs.
