Analysis Paper


Bullying is a common issue within today’s schooling system.  The author makes it a point
to talk about the behavioral aspect behind bullying, stating that bullying is a “Distinct
form of proactive aggression that is intentional, repeated, and involves imbalance between
the perpetrator and victim.” In the article, Direct Bullying: Criminal Act or Mimicking
What Has Been Learned, exposing the underlying issue behind the aggressor’s mindset during
an act of bullying. In their minds (the bully), they are choosing to act out of a repeated
or learned habit that was potentially formed as a coping mechanism due to hardships faced
in their own daily may be obvious and easy to notice due to the naïve nature of the
individual. For instance, a fifth grader may be more likely to bully a younger third
grader versus a fellow peer because the third grader is more than likely smaller, younger
in age, and less of a threat to their level of intelligence. Bullies are not always verbal
in their acts of aggression; frankly it is more of the subtle acts that place more of a
fear into their victim’s minds. After reading the first article I read two more articles
about the topic of bullying and another easy way, from the article, A Latent Class
Approach to Examining Forms of Pure Victimization, to break down the target is by
“starting rumors, sexual comments, or gestures” (Card & Hodges 2008); behaviors such as
these have a longer lasting affect mentally on the individual. A rumor may last days to

    CENSORSHIP ON THE INTERNET A 43-year-old man from Boston was having a steamy cyber affair with who he thought to be a 23-year-old woman. He later found out the "she," to his dismay, was an 80-year-old man living in a Miami nursing home. Things like this happen everyday, people mask their sex and age to avoid or attract attention on the Internet. This is only one of the reasons why the government wants to censor the Internet. They claim they want to ?protect' the children by limiting the amount
  • Juidical Review
    Juidical Review In 1717, Bishop Hoadly told King George I, "Whoever hath an absolute authority to interpret written or spoken laws; it is he who is truly the lawgiver to all intents and purposes and not the person who wrote or spoke them (Pollack, 153)." Early sentiments similar these have blossomed in to a large scale debate over which branch of our government has the power to overturn laws that do not follow the foundations of our democratic system; the constitution. In this paper I will disc

  • The Causation Of Serial Killers
    The Causation of Serial Killers People become serial killers for many reasons. Serial Killers are people with three or more seperate events with an emotional cooling off period between homicides with an emotional cooling- off period between homicides with each murder taking place at a different location. (Schechter and Everitt, 69). Serial killers are the most frightening psychopaths because they do not reveal any of the basic human emotions- empathy, conscience, or remorse, (Schechter and Ever
  • Animal Farm
    Animal farm By. George Orwell Characters: The main characters in Animal Farm were Napoleon, Snowball, Boxer, Clover, Jones, and Squealer. Most of the main characters are animals, excluding the only human, Jones. Jones was the owner of Manor Farm. He was constantly drunk. His physical appearance wasn't really described in the novel, but I picture Jones as a tall, slim fellow. He might have a slight pouch (possibly due to his alcohol addiction). He really doesn't seem to care about his animals, a

  • The Crucible
    The Crucible The Crucible is a play written by Arthur Miller. It is about a time of everyday people who use lying as a weapon while saying they are pure and religious. This story is a prime example of how people will do anything to get what they want, even if it means hurting other people.

  • When Comparing Mens Ability To Womens Ability, Is There Really A Big D
    When comparing men's ability to women's ability, is there really a big difference? Many people believe that differences do take place, but how? Both men and women have hopes, dreams, strengths, weaknesses, and goals. Even though these similarities exist, women are still sometimes thought to be lower than their male peers.

    In To Kill a Mocking Bird, Harper Lee gives us a very detailed description of Robert Ewell, his family, and how he lives.

    With talk shows ruling day-time television, people are left with little choice but to watch this humiliating form of entertainment. Turn the television on in the afternoon and you will find a large variety of talk shows to choose from. "Maybe we have become a nation addicted to hearing our neighbors' seamy personal problems"(You 40). Personally, I feel it is both the lack of choice and the attraction to other peoples problems. Many of the topics on talk shows are degrading to our society. If pe

    Managers and employee's in today's work force need to obey and understand the privacy and security laws that protect one another's privacy. The importance of an employee's privacy is not a topic to be taken lightly, and if not addressed and enforced in a serious manner, could create unwanted problems in corporations and businesses.

    Communism-The Ideal Society? Society is flawed. There are critical imbalances in it that are causing much of humanity to suffer. In The Communist Manifesto Karl Marx is reacting to this fact by describing his vision of a perfectly balanced society, a communist society.

Marx is writing of this society because, he believes it
