Should Welfare Recipients be tested for Drugs?
Author, David Vitter speculates on his beliefs that the testing of welfare recipients for drugs use is what America needs. He believes testing for drug user would “truly” help those in need of assistance from “Temporary Assistance for Needy Families” program renew welfare reform (‘Should Welfare Recipients Be Tested for Drugs?”.2011).
Vitter base parts of his argument on the “Robert Wood Johnson Foundation” reporting in 2007 approximately 20% of TANF recipients report usage of an illegal drug at least once in the past year, and at least five percent admitted that they had a substance addiction, Vitter (2011). After I analyzing the reliability, credibility, and validity of the data used by the author, some information were withheld from Vitter’s writings of the “Robert Wood Johnson Foundation” also added that the use of drugs is not as widespread among TANF recipients as studies feared (Vitter, 2011).
Vitter, also base parts of his argument on stats from the “Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act saying it cut welfare money by 2.5 million dollars in 2002. Those numbers is the result of putting more people to work and found that more people are taking advantage of job training programs (Vitter, 2011). Vitter put this information in hoping that the reader will make the assumption that less money, so recipients have to go to work and the act is pushing people off welfare. Vitter use a form of logical fallacy called “confusing association with causation”. The WOA open up doors for working people to strategize, get back to work or find a better job. The WOA also are supporting families that is evolving back to work with health coverage, childcare, and personal employability plans to evolve back into the workforce…...

...Knowing your Audience Paper and Communication Release Kevin Danielson BCOMB/275 October 15, 2012 Steve Boylan Article Rebuttle The Article is “Really? Don’t limit freedom to marry?” This was in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on September 23, 2012. In the article On November 6, Minnesota voters will decide whether marriage should be protected in the state Constitution. “The human race's two sexes -- male and female -- have much in common, but they also differ in fundamental ways. In the bearing and rearing of children, men and women complement one another physically, socially and emotionally. Women give birth to babies, and men beget them. Mothers tend to nurture, while fathers tend to encourage risk-taking. Boys and girls need -- and deserve -- both a father and a mother to model how to live.” (Kersten, 2012 ) Rebuttal There is no documentation stating that a child needs to have one of each sex as a role model to grow up. There are many stories out there of 2 women or 2 men raising a normal health child. You may recall a young man that spoke at the National Democratic convention, by the name of Zach Wahls. This young man was raised by 2 women and now his name is a house hold name. “I'm a sixth-generation Iowan, an Eagle Scout, and I was raised by my two moms, Jackie and Terry. People want to know what it's like having lesbian parents. I'll let you in on a secret: I'm awesome at putting the seat down. Otherwise, we're like any other......

...An article (abbreviated art) is a word (or prefix or suffix) that is with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. Articles specify the grammatical definiteness of the noun, in some languages extending to volume or numerical scope. The articles in the English language are the and a/an, and (in some contexts) some. 'An' and 'a' are modern forms of the Old English 'an', which in Anglian dialects was the number 'one' (compare 'on', in Saxon dialects) and survived into Modern Scots as the number 'ane'. Both 'on' (respelled 'one' by the Normans) and 'an' survived into Modern English, with 'one' used as the number and 'an' ('a', before nouns that begin with a consonant sound) as an indefinite article. Traditionally in English, an article is usually considered to be a type of adjective. In some languages, articles are a special part of speech, which cannot easily be combined with other parts of speech. It is also possible for articles to be part of another part of speech category such as a determiner, an English part of speech category that combines articles and demonstratives (such as 'this' and 'that'). In languages that employ articles, every common noun, with some exceptions, is expressed with a certain definiteness (e.g., definite or indefinite), just as many languages express every noun with a certain grammatical number (e.g., singular or plural). Every noun must be accompanied by the article, if any, corresponding to its definiteness, and the lack of...

...Article Rebuttal melissa thomas BCOM/275 So many today criticize same-sex couples; saying those two women or two men loving each other is unnatural or perverted. But the world we live in today is very open and free which means the people are entitled to love and marry whom ever they chose too. An article by posted Brandon Vogt stated that marriage has always meant the union of one man and one woman. Gay and lesbian individuals cannot perform the main function of marriage which is to produce children of their own. My argument is many argue that it's also unnatural because gay and lesbians can't "procreate." They have to look at other alternatives to become parents such as adoption, surrogates, or sperm donors. I ask how this is different from heterosexual couples with infertility problems turning to these same alternatives to be able to have children. A family is what you make it, what you do to create that family is the couples choice, gay, or straight. It doesn't matter if there are two dads, two moms, or a dad and a mom. Another thing I would like to address is the statement many have made about same-sex couples that do have children will make their children turn out gay. That is not even remotely true. All of my gay and lesbian friends are the product of straight parents. One of the debatable issues is legalized marriage. Brandon stated that Most of us acknowledge the fact that there should be some limitation over same......

...Florida Pension Article Rebuttal Florida Pension Article Rebuttal On May 31, 2013, Florida’s Governor Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 534 into the Florida Statues. This Bill was sponsored by Senator Jeff Brandes and imposes new financial reporting requirements for local government pension plans. However in the article titled “Florida House Passes Legislation Relating to Local Pension Plans,” Mr. Volz states that “the Bill equips local pension plan administrators, employees and taxpayers with improved universal tools to evaluate the financial stability of local pension plans.” There is no proof that this Bill is improved as the evaluation tools do not accurately evaluate the financial stability of the plans. The tool is not universal, as the State Government Plan, the Florida Retirement System, is not subject to this Bill. This article was influenced by the politicians that are for this Senate Bill. Only those that had something positive to say about it were quoted in the article. The Senate President was quoted thanking Senator Brandes, Speaker Weatherford, and the colleagues in the House for helping more the reform forward (Volz, May). This article is not reliable, credible or even valid as it does not provide any evidence to back up its claims and it only presents the one side of the story. What this article does not say is the Florida League of Cities, the Florida Public Pension Trustee Association, and the actuaries of many of the states pension plans all......

...Memantine is the second type of drug-based treatment also one effective treatment for the Alzhermeir’s disease. Memantine can also be used to protect brain cells from damage caused by glutamate, a chemical messenger. Namenda is an example of a Memantine drug treatment was the first drug approved by FDA to treat the symptoms of moderate to severe Alzhermeir’s disease. For many years, some European countries use this drug in treating moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease ( Farlow MR, et al. 2003 ). It was functioning as a barrier to protect the brain's nerve cells against excess amounts of glutamate, a messenger chemical released in large amounts by the cells that had been damaged by Alzheimer's. American Health Assistance Foundation, in an article published in 2011 states that "When the glutamate attached to the cell surface "docking sites" called N-methyl-D aspartate (NMDA) receptor, calcium can flow freely into cells, which can lead to cell degeneration. Namenda may prevent this destructive sequence by adjusting the activity of glutamate". Memantine also has been proven to improve memory such as Alzhermeir's disease and it can be used alone or with other Alzheimer’s disease treatments such as Donepezil (Aricept) that was the only Cholinesterase Inhibitor approved to treat all stages of Alzheimer’s disease, including moderate to severe. There is some evidence when some of patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s who are taking a Cholinesterase Inhibitor might get benefit......

...February 7, 2014, from http://www.edweek.org/tsb/articles/2011/10/13/01metlife.h05.html B. Synopsis of the Article: This article is talking about the lack of resources for the diverse needs of students in the classroom. The article mentions that teachers and parents believe that programs and resources to help diverse learners should be a high priority in education. The article also mentions the views about not only parents and teachers but it also shows the views of students and executives of companies.

...What is a Scholarly Article? Meriam Library  California State University, Chico Many instructors at the college level require that you use scholarly articles as sources when writing a research paper. Scholarly or peer-reviewed articles are written by experts in academic or professional fields. They are excellent sources for finding out what has been studied or researched on a topic as well as to find bibliographies that point to other relevant sources of information. How can you determine if your article is scholarly and/or peer reviewed? 1. Consult the chart. The chart on the back lists the general criteria for determining what type of periodical article you have. Keep in mind that some articles do not meet all the criteria. When in doubt, consult a Reference Librarian or your instructor. 2. Limit your database search to academic, scholarly, or peer reviewed journals. Many databases allow you to limit your search to academic, scholarly, or peer reviewed journals (terminology varies between databases). Although limiting provides a preliminary filter, not all articles within a scholarly journal are scholarly, so you will need to evaluate each article individually against the criteria in the chart. 3. Ask a Librarian We can help you find a scholarly article or determine whether an article you have is scholarly.

...Article Rebuttal Valerie Harren BCOM/275 – Business Communications University of Phoenix May 25, 2015 Wayne Brock Article Rebuttal In this paper the subject discussed are concerns for the 2008 introduction of California Proposition 8. It will contest the statements made by the author and provide meaningful information that will rebut misleading assertions documented in this article. Statement 1 According to Laura Brill, the author of this article- “It’s time for Prop.8 opponents to re-engage” (Brill, May 26 2011, Pg. 1) published in the OC Register, the majority of the population supports equal marriage rights. “Now, two years later, though a federal court has declared Proposition 8 invalid under the U.S. Constitution, it nonetheless remains in effect. This state of affairs persists even though most people now support equal marriage rights…” The hyperbolic statement that most people now support equal marriage rights is a gross exaggeration. The results from respected polling agencies continue to show the majority of Americans still do not agree with same-sex marriages. Recent polling results reflect that 46% of Americans do not favor acceptance of same-sex marriages. The same polling figures documented 9% of the responses in the “Do not know” category with the remaining numbers for those in favor of same-sex marriage to be the minority. (Pew Research Center, 2011) Statement 2 “The initiative proponents, however, have appealed. Now the California Supreme......

...Can the Brilliant Jerk Be Managed Effectively? By James Haskett JAMES HESKETT James Heskett is a Baker Foundation Professor, Emeritus, at Harvard Business School. ORIGINAL ARTICLE The annoying employee who makes his numbers while alienating those around him will gain needed attention in the coming months with at least one book about to be published on the subject. This is an age-old problem that most managers handle badly. You know the story by now. It concerns high-performing employees, known by some as "stars" and by others as "destructive heroes" or "brilliant jerks," those who generate a great deal of business while creating problems for colleagues. They are demanding to the point of being abusive, they make promises to clients that their colleagues cannot meet, they take too much credit for success, and they generally are unable to adhere to commonly shared values of members of the organization. The management response to this kind of situation is too often ineffective. By their own admission, their managers are reluctant to rock the boat as long as the numbers continue to be good. In doing so, they underestimate the costs to the organization, including the loss of other talent. And when they do act, they do so much too slowly, often after most of the damage has been done. Jack Welch has written about the phenomenon of what he calls "jerks" or "bullies" from his own experience. At GE they were referred to as a "Type 4" manager, "the person who delivers on......

...and none of these assignments will be marked. Furthermore, these students may be penalised or subjected to University disciplinary proceedings. PLAGIARISM: VERY IMPORTANT! While you are strongly encouraged to become familiar with a broad range of ideas, be very vigilant regarding plagiarism. Any idea or argument that you incorporate in your essays, if drawn from elsewhere, must be clearly attributed to its source (and this, very importantly, includes Internet sources). Remember that plagiarism is a serious offence and, while often committed inadvertently, will result in zero per cent being awarded for submitted work. Please read the detailed explanation given below very carefully: * If you copy something out of a book, an article, a website or another document without acknowledging its source, and pass it off as your own, that constitutes plagiarism. In effect, you are stealing something that belongs to someone else, dishonestly pretending that it is your own. * If you paraphrase material (i.e. change the wording slightly) or use ideas or a line of argument without acknowledging the original source, this also constitutes plagiarism and the same severe penalty will apply. * It is not enough to cite sources in the bibliography at the end of your essay. You must refer to these in the body of your essay, in brackets, next to every statement that is based on borrowed formulations or ideas. * The Disciplinary Code for Students (2004) is......

The Article

...be taken over by his “superego” and eventually taken back over by his “ego.” Our journey starts with the young man, the narrator, telling us his story. The young man is a caretaker of an old man who is really old and has a diseased eye. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” the young man starts out by loving the old man very deeply. He takes care of his every need, until one day “ the old man’s eye fell upon him and his blood ran cold”(Poe 2). The young man then turned to his narcissistic ways and it changed the way he felt about the old man whom “he loved so dearly” (Poe 1). In “ Explanation of: ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ by Edgar Alan Poe,” which was rewritten by an unknown author, it explains how the narrator is a “paranoid schizophrenic”(pg. 1). The article explains how Edgar Alan Poe was obsessed with “death, madness, and troubled human relationships” (pg. 1). The narrator is definitely a man caught between normality and psychopath. Further more the young man goes on to “spy on the old man every night for a week” (Poe 3). In doing this, the young man is letting his “id” take over his thoughts and actions. Chua brings up a good point in “An overview of ‘The Tell-Tale Heart,” stating that the “old man and the young man are one in the same person” (Chua 2). This is a good point because the young man is “spying on the old man for a week, opening the door each night a little at a time” (Poe 5). This brings a little light to the situation explaining why the old man does not catch the young......

...Article Rebuttal John Alton BCOM 275 Dec. 22, 2014 Lileen Coulloudon Article Rebuttal For the subject of my article rebuttal I have chosen a topic that I wanted to educate myself on by examining both viewpoints, and evaluating my own stance once I have more information. While the real topic is very broad and covers quite a few disciplines, many people now lump several issues into one big talking point called “Common Core”. As a father of two young children this issue has a very real outcome for me, and I wanted to examine why this issue was so polarizing. As defined by www.corestandars.org, Common Core is a set of high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language arts/literacy (ELA). These learning goals outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of each grade. To take this issue to its simplest point, Common Core achieves its goals through standardized testing. This concept was born of the desire to benchmark American students against others. I found the need to search outside of my normal newsfeeds and websites to find an article to rebut. When I found Six ways the Common Core is Good for Students featured on the neaToday website I knew the six points were thinly veiled propaganda. It had six well defined reasons that Common Core was going to do all that it promised to do, and gave examples as well as testimonials from educators who were finding that Common Core was working. Interestingly enough, several times in the......

Discovery in Labor Arbitration Laura J.Cooper* The mere statement of the topic, discovery in labor arbitration, suggests a paradox. Is not the essence of the arbitration process an effort to avoid the procedural complexities that make litigation comparatively slow and costly? More than forty years ago, Learned Hand admonished a litigant distressed with the procedural failings of an arbitration proceeding: Arbitration may or may not be a desirable substitute for trials in courts; as to that the parties must decide in each instance. But when they have adopted it, they must be content with its informalities; they may not hedge it about with those procedural limitations which it is precisely its......

...Rebuttal Article Rebuttal Jeff Holliday BCOM/275 Article Rebuttal In a rebuttal to the article “Obama is a great president; we’re just a lousy country, I would like to analyze the reliability, credibility, and validity of the data used by the author, as well as identify any logical fallacies in the argument. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in 2009, when President Obama signed the stimulus package into law, he promised a six percent unemployment rate by this time. Granted, a drop has been seen in the unemployment, but what the author does not seem to realize is the number of Americans who have stopped looking for work. The Department of Labor has reported an unemployment rate of 8.2 for the month of March 2012. The actual unemployment or U-6 rate as of March is hovering at 14.5 percent. Many argue that it has become so easy to gain government benefits, that looking for work is no longer a priority. The President needs to limit benefits to push people to search for work or take jobs that may not be their first choice. Unfortunately, many Americans have become so discouraged with the lack of performance from the current administration that the author has come to this conclusion. The author of this article has a clear bias to what the President has or has not accomplished to date. Fallacies used within the article would include generalizing Americans as lazy and obese. He states the Obama has given Americans all of the tools to succeed, but Americans just......
