Argumentative Essay: Abortion
English Composition II, Spring 2013
Abortion: Being Pro-choice
Today, abortion is a big issue concerning women because for years it had been said that abortion should not be legal. Many people feel aborting an unwanted child, or killing an unwanted child should be against the law. Many people don't' know what abortion is, who can receive abortions, and why people would even choose to get them. I feel as though a woman's body is her own to do with what ever she wants. Therefore, on the topic of abortions, I am pro-choice.
Whether or not women have the right to have abortions is a controversial subject. Opponents of abortions believe that

HEALTH AND HEALING AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Throw out the bottles and boxes of drugs in your house. A new theory
suggests that medicine could be bad for your health, which should at least
come as good news to people who cannot afford to buy expensive
medicine. However, it is a blow to the medicine industry, and an even
bigger blow to our confidence in the progress of science. This new theory
argues that healing is at our fingertips: we can be healthy by doing Reiki
on a regular basis.
Supporters of medical treatment argue that medicine should be trusted
since it is effective and scientifically proven. They say that there is no
need for spiritual methods such as Reiki, Yoga, Tai Chi

An active, well-informed, well-trained Board of Directors (BOD) is absolutely essential to the success of the organization. The BOD for this organization is not unlike any other not-for-profit boards with less than 10 years in age. The boards of these organizations sometimes consist of inexperienced and unknowledgeable management professionals. New board members are excited to make good decisions and evoke proper change within the organization. They soon find out change is not quick and results aren’t seen over night. Due to this reality board members with tenure can become complacent and thereby miss opportunities for organizational growth. This can create barriers to performance

Ideas and Analysis = 1
The absence of a thesis (an idea that the argument as a whole works to explore/explain/support) has a significant impact on the quality of this response. Without one, the writer’s intentions are difficult to discern. While the writer does generate a few ideas, he does not do so in service of an argumentative purpose. For example, the notion that people’s jobs are lost as a result of new technologies could be productive, but without a connection to a larger argument, this attempt at analysis accomplishes very little.
Development and Support = 1
There are few attempts to develop the ideas in this response. Rather, the essay consists largely of

The Complexities’ of Conflict: Conflict is often viewed by many as a negative act that is argumentative, inflated, redundant, and combative. However, according to Abigail & Cahn (2011) conflict is an inevitable interpersonal function that exists due to the complexities of interdependent relationships. Interdependent relationships are a natural byproduct of family, work, school, community and a host of other close knit relationships. Often these relationships are influenced by one’s social economic status as well as their social cultures and value systems (Wilmot & Hocker, 2011). Furthermore, all conflict is directly related to one’s ability to

Has Rape as a Socio-cultural Vice Changed over Time?
This question is perhaps one of the most argumentative when discussing the evolution of rape over time. Arguably, this is because socio-cultural practices are constantly facing rapid changes hence change in the way communities perceive the subject of rape and feminism. On the contrary, many will also argue that nothing about rape has changed since the underlying concepts of this vice have barely changed over time.
Rape as a socio-cultural vice has not changed over time. Although societies are constantly subjected to rapid socio-cultural changes, some aspects of society are barely affected by such changes. For instance, while

How the reader perceives the characters plays a large role in the readers understanding and connection to the text. In Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen’s development of many characters draws certain emotions from the reader. The personalities of many characters in Pride and Prejudice become infuriating and bothersome as the novel progresses. Austen’s creation of ridiculous and exaggerated characters such as Mrs. Bennet, Mr. Collins, Miss Bingley, and Lady Catherine create negative reader bias towards the characters and their actions in the novel.

Role of Sports in Society
A. Description of the issue
The role of sport in society has been debated for many decades. Sport is a part of society as both an educational fixture and an entertainment enterprise. Sport forms part of human and social development; it can contribute to social cohesion, tolerance and integration and is an effective channel for physical and socio-economic development. As a universal language, sport can be a powerful medium for social and economic change: it can be utilized to bridge cultural gaps, resolve conflict and educate people in ways that very few activities can. The goal of the Sports Council is to examine the proposition that sport can be a powerful agent

Business globalisation is forming new demands for individuals, organisations and countries to work together in many different ways. A team that is multi-cultural has the capability to bring individuals together with an extensive range of ideas and experiences. In the recent years, there has been a tendency of multi-cultural teams becoming very common. This is because cross border mobility has become much easier and the number of people travelling from one nation to another has grown significantly (Aswathppa, 2010). This has also resulted in the intermarrying of people from different ethnic backgrounds and cultures. Although having multicultural

When companies begin they develop a business plan that details what they intend to specialize in. For some, once they have reached a goal in one market they make decisions to venture out into other markets. In the world of business, that venturing out is called diversifying the company. According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary, to diversify is “to increase the variety of the products of; or to engage in varied operations.” (Merriam-Webster, 2012) In a business, when you produce a variety of goods or invest in different markets it is a strategy that provides a back-up in the event that one good or investment goes south.

What is Honor?
My understanding of the term honor.
Honor is defined as a source of credit or distinction, and is associated with reverence, dignity, reputation, good name and a good sense of what is morally correct. The key part to honor is having respect for others and for you; the two must act together because without both, there is nothing. I strongly believe that reputation is hard to gain and easily lost. Think about this, every day thousands of planes fly somewhere and there is never any news about a successful landing, but if any of those flights crash, it is all over the news. This fact tells me that in order to keep one’s honor, one must maintain a set standard of excellence. It

When people hear the term capital budgeting, they usually focus on the budgeting part of the term rather than the capital portion.

Remember, a capital expenditure can be many things -- a large copying machine, an automated assembly line, a building, or the ultimate in capital budgeting -- the acquisition of another entity.

This article focuses on children that were emotionally neglected early on in their lives. The probability of these children having long-term effects of this neglect is very high if not noticed by professionals or someone who is willing to take the time to try and help them.
In one case, the child was left alone in the crib most of the time and not given much physical input from the people around her. This made it difficult for her to show emotions whether positive or negative. She was considered a good child because she never asked for any help or

Companies need an approach to CRM that marketers — and customers — can embrace. Embraceable CRM starts with a simple premise: The most important part of the database isn’t the base; it’s the data. To gain the information necessary to embrace the customer, relationship programs must be based on two principles:
* First, they cannot wait until the first purchase is consummated to begin to understand consumer interests, concerns, desires, and habits. The key to unlocking value is to recognize that different customers follow different purchase paths. Effective CRM systems must dive deep into the purchase decision before the purchase is made. Call this purchase-cycle intimacy.
