Criminology as one of the most popular degree of choice because of its distinct and various field of profession of licensed criminologist from the most common law enforcer or police officer and the allied career like investigator, forensic science technicians, security guard dispatcher, academician or professor; and non passer board exam security officer, personal body guard and bouncer.
But employment of the graduates of criminology is not certain. Only four of every 10 graduates will land a job within the year of their graduation, a recent study reveals.

The use of low intelligence as a predictor of criminal behaviour has been the cause of considerable controversy within criminal justice discourse across a range of societies and cultures for many centuries. The downtrodden of society, for the most part those of low socio-economic status, have often been victims of labelling theories that associate their desperation for survival with low intelligence, along with their associated frequent mistreatment as miscreants. The source of such labelling and definitions originates in all societies with those in positions of power imposing laws, policies and stigmas on those without power. A self-fulfilling prophecy often follows, perpetuating the belief

Thinking back to the time of Classic Rock and Roll, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Dirty Dancing, and a faraway land called Viet Nam. Viet Nam affected families; fathers, brothers, children were dying and the age of the innocence was lost forever. Juveniles began a culture of their own, smoking, drinking alcohol, using drugs to attain a mental or in some cases a physical high to ease their pain of loss. This behavior began as a way of coping with their pain, when they realized this made them feel good, they wanted to

appealing themes in popular culture, the public receives a skewed version of crime. The public’s knowledge may be particularly lacking with regard to the entire field of criminology, the differences between blue-collar and white-collar crime, and the general perception of the incidence of crime in the United States.
You are asked, as the public relations representative of your police department, to provide an information session on the field of criminology. The expectation is to make sure the public understands the facts of law enforcement and to differentiate between the fictions presented in different media outlets.

, killing were only contracts, he didn't view them out of personal affairs it was just business. It didn't matter the weapons of choice he use to murder his victims like knife, guns, cyanide, and a crowbar. He was the kind of guy who didn't have any attachment as long as the job got done. For me he falls into the category of Psychiatric Criminology because he displays a psychopath behavior. A psychopath is an individual who has a personality disorder, especially one manifested in aggressively antisocial behavior, and who is lacking in empathy. Being able to manipulated those around him and to be so unemotionally attached to them is what defined Richard Kuklinski. The “Iceman” in this case is that he so detail in his line of work that his “friends” will later turn into enemies, and see no problem with it and to be able to erase his tracking to all those murders he was very conniving.

Adopting a Postmodernist approach, Carol Smart (1990) introduced the concept of 'transgressive criminology‘. In a postmodernist society, transgression is beyond the boundaries of conventional criminology. It considers ideas as diverse as self-imposed curfews; treatment of women as victims; domestic violence, abuse and rape.
Some sociologists would argue that women are more deviant than they appear and are protected by a ‘chivalry factor‘ by the authorities, including the police and the courts.
Hilary Allen (1987) argues that there is a mental health explanation, including PMS for female criminality, resulting in lighter punishments by the courts.

A study published in the Journal of Criminology suggested that anti-bullying programs could be having the opposite than intended effects. In an analysis of 7,000 students from 50 states, researchers from the University of Texas at Arlington found that students at schools with anti-bullying initiatives may be more likely to become a victim of bullying.
"Usually people expect an anti-bullying program to have some impact -- some positive impact."
Those findings didn't come as a surprise to Stuart Twemlow, an established voice in the field and co-author of Preventing Bullying and School Violence.

illustrates how the society is operated by a group of wealthy and influential individuals who use their positions to exploit the services provided by the poor. These poor people are regarded as the working class since they are mostly involved in the production of goods for the ruling class. It is therefore correct to say that members of the ruling class are users of what is produced by the working class. Through this imbalance, society creates laws, and other specifications to govern the manner in which a country operates.

No human being or human-made system is free from corruption or fraud. Contrary to the popular belief, corruption, bribery and fraud are not problems specific to economically underdeveloped countries; on the contrary, these crimes are quite widespread in developed Western democracies, particularly in the US. Broadly speaking, these deviant behaviors, defined as “white-collar crimes,” can also referred to as “crimes of the powerful.” It was Edwin Hardin Sutherland, a US social scientist, who first coined this terminology in the literature of sociology and criminology.

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

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

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.
