Economic Factors

The two cities that I have chosen to evaluate for economic differences are Jeffersonville, Indiana which lies in the Clark County Area and San Diego, California witch lies in the County of San Diego Area. The two most important factors for me when moving would be the job opportunities and climate. I will evaluate these and also cost of living expenses.
The current population of Clark County stands at 96,472 versus the 2.8 million in the County of San Diego. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Clark County in the third quarter of 2004 reported an unemployment rate of 5.5%. This has steadily grown from 3.7% in the fourth quarter of 2003. Clark County?s Total Resident Labor Force as of 2003 consists of 53,699 with 51,487 people employed. Leaving 2,212 people unemployed approximately 4.2% of the labor force. The County of San Diego reported and unemployment rate of 3.2% as of the fourth quarter in 2004. This has fluctuated from 3.6% in December of 2003 to 4.4% in July of 2004 back down to the current 3.2%. The County of San Diego?s total labor force consists of 1,521,000 with 1,472,800 people employed leaving 48,200 people unemployed.

Ed Koch And Russel Feingold

Ed Koch And Russel Feingold

Ed Koch and Russel Feingold both present valid arguments both for and against capital punishment. Though both writers have broken down their arguments thoroughly I remain sided with Koch. I feel capital punishment is absolutely necessary and Koch?s argument affirmed my theory. Feingold argued against capital punishment based on the theory that the government made too many mistakes and is more likely to let an innocent suffer. Feingold states, it is better that ten guilty persons escape, than one innocent suffer. I completely disagree. I feel that in order to create complete security among citizens the harshest punishment necessary should be applied. If ten guilty people were set free to save the one innocent, how many more innocents shall suffer due to the ten escaped guilty people

James Cook & The Exploration Of The South Pacific

James Cook & The Exploration Of The South Pacific

JAMES COOK AND THE EXPLORATION OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC

On April 3, 1768, the Earl of Pembroke, an awkward looking North Sea coal carrier, was put into dry dock in a choice slip at the English Naval Shipyard of Deptford, on the Thames River near London. Stout and heavy, with a steep bow and a narrow stern, the new ship appeared sharply out of place amidst the rows of sleek frigates and magnificent ships of the line; the ships being repaired and refitted for service (Allen 107). A few Deptford officers bluntly questioned if the bark-rigged vessel was even listed in the Royal Navy (Day 35). For what conceivable reason could the Admiralty require the services of a grimy boat as the Earl of Pembroke
In fact, the homespun collier was intended for a single adventurous role. She would carry a handpicked group of British scientists and naval officers to the farthest reaches of the known pacific to conduct vital astronomical research, and to find the centuries old legend of Terra Austrialis Incognita (Southern Land not yet known). A Collier had been selected because it could hold the large amount of supplies and scientific equipment that the voyages

Ebonics

Ebonics

Ebonics is as much a language as Spanish or French. Ebonics reflex a whole unique culture. Ebonics was developed by African slave descendants; it is a blend of primarily West African and European English. The main difference between Ebonics and traditional English is the distinctive pronunciation, the ways in which the words are combined to form grammatical statements. Some examples are the use of ?ain?t?, ending sentences with prepositions and the use of double negatives. Someone speaking the language of Ebonics is no different then if someone with a heavy southern accent. Just because a group talks differently then you doesn?t mean that it?s wrong or that it?s not English. It may not be proper in some situations but its

Free Trade Vs. Protectionism

Free Trade Vs. Protectionism

Free Trade vs. Protectionism
A major debate between economists is whether and economy should have free trade or protectionism for their companies. Supporters of free trade believe in opening the global market, with as few restrictions on trade as possible. Supporters of protectionism believe in concentrating on the welfare of the domestic economy by limiting the open-market policy of the United States. However, what effects does this policy have for the international market and the other respective countries in this market The question is not as complex as it may seem. Both sides have strong viewpoints representing their respective opinions, and even the population of the United States is divided when it comes to taking a stand in the issue. Those who favor free trade think that an open trading system with few limitations and little government involvement is best. On the other hand, those in favor of protectionism believe that governments must take action to regulate trade and subsidize industries to protect the domestic economy.
In theory, completely free trade would provide the most goods and services at the lowest possible costs. However, the competition that free trade brings to domestic industries may result in unemployment and slower growth. Therefore

Irish Insurrevtion

Irish Insurrevtion

The Rebellion of 1641 has proved to have lasting effects on the modern Irish state. There were several distinct factors that ultimately led to the uprising, representing the independent interests of different groups within Ireland. The years directly preceding the outbreak of the Rebellion and the political climate of both England and Ireland at the time offer important insight into the inevitable course the Irish state took at the time of the uprising. However, the roots of the 1641 Rebellion can be traced back to the Protestant Reformation and the first English settlements through Plantations. The lasting significance of the Uprising, therefore, has more to do with the religious tensions that persisted in both the Catholic and Protestant communities as a result of the conflict than with the particular political events that surrounded it.

For almost four centuries, the royal administration in Ireland had distinguished between the Gaelic Irish populations in the lands of Leinster, Munster, Connacht, and Ulster, and the English population in the Pale, a relatively urbanized settlement centered in Dublin and the outlying towns of Leinster and Munster (Becket, Short History). The Protestant Reformation introduced into Ireland in the 1530s made little progress in winning converts

E-Commerce

Online business has become more prosperous in today?s marketplace than it has been in the past, when computers were not as popular. With special software that eliminates the jobs of customer service personnel, along with new ad campaigns and e-alliances, Internet commerce continues to thrive. Even non-profit organizations benefit from the people who manipulate the Internet as a source of income. Some websites supply services that help people sell their own items; others base their websites on both the Internet and in the real world. ?Business to Business? connections are being made between corporations and are failing repeatedly and causing many e-failures.

First of all, the definition of e-commerce is any business transacted online or transactions conducted over the Internet, either by consumers purchasing goods and services, or directly between businesses. With modern and constantly improving telecommunications infrastructures, we have been provided with the means to exchange data almost instantaneously. Electronic Commerce is about using these data flows in the most effective way possible.

Consumerism

Consumerism

North America has become the world?s largest consumer driven continent since the mid 1900?s. With the addition of easily accessed media, technology, and advertising budgets, it is no wonder we are all drawn into consumerism madness. The Rebel Sell article tries to prove, more to the anti-consumerist, how everyone is involved no matter how you portray yourself or the actions that one might take against the system.
So how does a person who won?t buy Nike shoes or Levi?s jeans or BMW?s contribute to this nation of consumers without even knowing it The authors point out many key issues that have created this cycle throughout the past 40-50 years.
Let?s start back in the 60?s with the sudden growth of advertising and a long-haired, un-showered, rebellious group of youth we refer to as hippies. Just at the right time, when the hippies refused to be capitalist pigs and buy anything from the large companies such as the Detroit automakers, Volvo and Volkswagen started an add campaign claiming that by buying their cars, you can show the big automakers that you are too smart to fall for their advertising and be a victim of consumerism.

Italy In The Renaissance

Italy In The Renaissance

The Renaissance saw the change not only of European culture, but also of Europe politically. Unlike Spain, England, and France, Italy fail to develop a strong centralized monarchy by the fourteenth century. Southern Italy had been divided into the kingdom of Sicily, ruled by the Spanish house of Argon, and the kingdom of Naples, whose rule came by the French house of Anjou. Central Italy had still been under the control of the Papacy. The Papacy had also opposed the Hohenstaufen rule in northern Italy, which virtually ensured Italy?s division (Spielvogel). During this time two major changes had occurred in the way that the Italians were governed. Republican governments were replaced with limited rule. Tyrants soon purchased titles from the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire to make their rule justified. The second major change was the expansion of the lager city-states at the expense of the smaller, less powerful ones. Italy in the late fourteenth century was a land of five major states and numerous independent city-states.
Northern Italy was divided between the republic of Venice and the Duchy of Milan. Francesco Sforza conquered the city of Milan and became the new duke after the death of the last Visconti
