Sample Essay on Abusive Parents

"Of course, my father had used to hit me, but he did that to get me back on the right path. I do not see here any correlation with the failure of my married life" said Georges, a prominent surgeon.

The Georges’ story is not exceptional. Many people have trouble in their relationships with parents to have a major impact on their lives.

Our parent plant in us mental and emotional seeds that grow at the same time as we do. In some families these seeds are love, respect, and independence. But in others, these seeds are fear, guilt, or liability.

All parents have occasional disabilities, they are only human. Most children thrive if they receive their content of love and understanding.

Abusive parents impose trauma, abuse, critical attitude to their children and most of the time they continue to behave so even if children have become adults. Children of abusive parents feel consciously or unconsciously guilty of abuse from their parents. This leads to lack of confidence in adulthood and poor self-esteem.

Extended Essay on Opium Wars

Lin Tse-Hou, military and scholar, wrote to Queen Victoria firmly asking her to stop opium trafficking that takes considerable proportions. In response, "the very pure and very Christian Queen Victoria" advised that England cannot abandon an important source of income.

The situation between the two powers is deteriorating rapidly: February 26, 1839 Lin Tse-Hou ordered to hang a Chinese trafficker before Cantonese representations of the British traders. Despite the hostility of a corrupted part of the Chinese elite, Lin stands firm and organizes the fight in the city and the province of Canton. He does stop 1700 Chinese drug traffickers and confiscated 70 000 opium pipes. He published an order where merchants engaged to do not carry opium and let inspect their boats. This additional paperwork before the arrival in July 1839, '39 rules' which key measures particularly irritate the Governor Elliot, representative of the English Crown in China: death penalty to offenders, 18 months granted to victims for detoxification and penalties applied to foreigners which violates the principle of extra-territoriality so dear to the British. After these multiple pressures, Elliot has no other choice to allow the delivery of 20 290 boxes of opium to the Chinese authorities. They are open and then with the help of the population, opium is thrown into the sea June 7, 1839. The prejudice of two million pounds sterling will be lively discussions at the Parliament in London the following year.

Essay Writing on Reverse Discrimination

Reverse discrimination is a principle to create inequality in order to establish equality, by allowing some preferential treatment. It is seen as a way to restore equality of opportunities compromised by two phenomena: generalization or the persistence of racist or sexist practices on one hand, and accentuation of the socio-economic inequalities on the other hand. Depending on the first or the second case, using reverse discrimination brings two very different logics: when it comes to eliminate racist or sexist practices, this requires the definition of a "target population" from inherent and indelible features, belonging to the identity of the individual (sex and race in the United States gender and foreign origin in France); on the other hand, when it comes to socio-economic inequalities, the beneficiaries are to be defined by the criterion of their socio-economic situation. There are therefore two forms of affirmative should not be confused.

College Essay on Minorities in Mass Media

One of the difficulties faced by the modern European society is to recognize and to perceive itself fully as multicultural. In this context, the audiovisual media can play a major role. But at the moment there seems to be a clear distance between the reality of things and their reflection that the media referring to minorities.

Unequal and insufficient representation of immigrants and minorities in the European mass media, in particular television, is a fact widely and regularly confirmed by more than twenty years of research.

As it has been summarized by the Dutch linguist T. A. Van Dijk, working on the relationship between racism and the mass media, "the media, today as well that 50 or 100 years ago, tend to assimilate foreigners, immigrants, refugees, or minorities to a problem and refer to 'them' rather than as an integral part of ’we.’ However, this resume echoes an idea put forward by E. Mace that "representation in mass media reflects, at one point, specific national collective imaginary tensions" (Mace, 2006 b: 115).

Child Psychology Essay

Child psychology is a branch of developmental psychology, dedicated to the exploration of patterns of mental development of the child. The main subject of analysis is driving causes and conditions for ontogenetic development of individual mental processes, including the formation of different types of a child behavior.

Child psychology, as a science of mental development of the child, originated as a branch of comparative psychology in the late 19th century. The starting point for systematic research on the psychology of the child is a work «Die Seele des Kindes» by Darwinian William Preyer. The work described the results of the Preyer’s daily observations on the development of his own son, paying attention to the development of his senses, motor skills, will, mind, and language. Despite the fact that the monitoring took place long before the Preyer’s book was published, Preyer’s undeniable priority was the study of the earliest years of the child and the introduction of the method of objective observation to child psychology, developed by analogy with the methods in the natural sciences. In modern terms, Peyer’s views are seen as naive, limited to the level of development of science of the 19th century. For example, he considered the mental development of the child as a version of the biological development. (However, strictly speaking, even today, there are hidden and explicit proponents of this idea...). Nevertheless, Preyer was the first who made the transition from introspective to objective study of the child psyche. Therefore, he is considered the founder of child psychology by the unanimous recognition of the psychologists.

Essay on Energy Drinks should be Banned

A few months ago, the analytical and research agency Packaged Facts (PF) noted a sharp increase in the demand for energy drinks. According to the PF experts, the revenue from the sales of this category of products will exceed $21.5 billion by 2017. For comparison, the legendary Coca-Cola Corporation, providing water dispensers all over the world, earns about $47 billion annually.

However, this week, the popular energy drinks industry attracted attention of the US Congress. 

Several senators and House members said they intend to restrict or even ban the sale of the caffeinated beverages. The Bill, which is destined to drop the production of energy drinks to the level that was decades ago, most likely, will bear the name of Anais Fournier, 14-year-old resident of Maryland, who died a year and a half ago after she drunk two cans (volume of each was 24-ounce) containing huge doses of caffeine.

The child death forced the US Department of Health and Human Services to conduct an impromptu survey,which quite unexpectedly revealed that every month more than 2.000 inhabitants of the United States have been treated in the emergency rooms with problems caused by the energy drinks.

Psychological Criticism Essay

Psychological criticism is a generic name for all research efforts to establish literary phenomenon based on Freudian psychoanalytic theory, or theories by his disciples. In some of his works that touch the issue of creative writing and psychology of aesthetic experience (such as "Interpretation of Dreams", "The joke and the unconscious" or "poet and fantasy"), Freud gave great encouragement to this criticism.

Freud attempted to analyze the various symptoms (e.g., the inclination of some to certain reasons) and to share the light on unconscious factors in the creative process, though he was not inclined to think that it will transform his integral doctrine of analysis because he was aware that understanding which should create art is limited and could not fully explain the power of artistic creativity. For him, the artist is one who wishes and urges the exercise in fantasy and summarizes it in a special way. Media that are used allow adequate perception of the receiver.
