The facts and the circumstances of Mike Brown shooting incident still under federal and local investigation yet it resulted in protests and civil disorder and it also attracted attention of civil rights leaders, Celebrities, athletes, and the president of the United States also made a comment regarding this incident.

According to the Washington times in salt Lake City, Utah Mr. Dillon Taylor 20 years old white male was exiting a 7-eleven with his brother and cousin when officers arrived into investigate of a person with a gun call in the area. Mr. Taylor whom was unarmed and wearing headphones at the time ignored officer’s command and he was shot by the officer who is African American. Mr. Taylor’s friends and family held protest outside of state and federal offices demanding justice.

Mr. Taylor incident occurred 2 days after the high profile case of Mike Brown in Ferguson but yet it didn’t receive half of the attention from the media Mike Brown case did.

Psychoanalyizing Mike Tyson

...MIKE TYSON PSYCHOANALYTIC REPORT PSYCHOLOGY DR WHITELY QUINISE CAMPBELL August 26, 2014 I chose for my subject Michael Gerard “Mike” Tyson. Mike Tyson is an American retired professional boxer. What attracted me to pick Mike Tyson was that I felt that he was a gentle giant that has been misunderstood in this life. So with this psychoanalytic study we are going to break down the myths that people think about him. I know this is not supposed to be a biography about the life of Mike Tyson; but to give some insight on which of the 7 psychology’s major perspectives I chose you have to know a little about his background. At an early age Tyson’s parent separated, leaving him to be raised by a single mother, he witnessed a horrific and gruesome atmosphere of crime, drugs, and violence. He had never had a physical altercation at that point in his life, but after continually being bullied Tyson finally stood up for himself when another boy grabbed his pet pigeon and broke its neck. Tyson describes that as his first fight, and it was the one that started his continual fighting in the streets and also the development of his criminal behavior. I think that the early stages of his life fall under the Socioculture perspective level. The values and beliefs transmitted from his social and cultural environment played a huge part in all of the trouble that he got into as a child and as adolescent. John Locke once proposed that humans are born with a blank slate (tabula rasa) into the...

The Case of Mike and Marty Scanlon

... disciplined and organized. Marty was quit, sober, and retiring. He was sympathetic, kind and appreciative, stable, calm and secure. Mike was the opposite, preference for variety, careless, impulsive and disorganized. Mike was talkative, fun loving and socialable. 3. Temperament plays a major part in the differences in Mike and Marty’s personalities. Temperament is quite consistent with significant stability from infancy well into adolescence. It is clear that certain personality traits have substantial genetic components, and that heredity and environment interact to determine personality. 4. Marty would be achieving self actualization a state of self-fulfillment in which people realize their highest potential, each in a unique way. People develop a positive regard that reflects the desire to be loved and respected. 5. Each conception of intelligence represents a instance in which more intelligent people are better able to use the resources of their environment that are less intelligent people, a distinction that is presumably basic to any definition of intelligence. It is clear that these conceptions represent very different views of intelligence. Psychologist Howard Garner has taken a different approach from traditional thinking. Rather than ask “How smart are you?” the question asked should be “How are you smart?” Mike and Marty are intelligent in different ways....

James Brown

...James Joseph Brown[1] (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006) was an American singer and dancer. The founding father of funk music and a major figure of 20th-century popular music and dance, he is often referred to as "The Godfather of Soul". In a career that spanned six decades, Brown influenced the development of several music genres.[2] Brown began his career as a gospel singer in Toccoa, Georgia. Joining an R&B vocal group called the Avons that later evolved to become The Famous Flames, Brown served as the group's lead singer.[3][4] First coming to national public attention in the late 1950s as a member of The Flames with the hit ballads "Please, Please, Please" and "Try Me", Brown built a reputation as a tireless live performer with the Famous Flames and his backing band, sometimes known as the James Brown Band or the James Brown Orchestra. Brown's success peaked in the 1960s with the live album Live at the Apollo and hit singles such as "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag", "I Got You (I Feel Good)" and "It's a Man's Man's Man's World". During the late 1960s, Brown moved from a continuum of blues and gospel-based forms and styles to a profoundly "Africanized" approach to music-making that influenced the development of funk music.[5] By the early 1970s, Brown had fully established the funk sound after the formation of The J.B.'s with records such as "Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine" and "The Payback". Brown also became notable for songs of social commentary, including......

Mike and Marty

...1) Freud could explain the personality differences between Mike and Marty Scanlon by saying that he believes much of our behavior is motivated by the unconscious, a part of the personality that contains the memories, knowledge, beliefs, feelings, urges, drives and instincts of which the individual is not aware of. Mike encountered some type of conflict during a stage in his life. It was most likely the phallic stage. If a problem occurred during this stage, they might produce an adult who fails to develop a conscience and has improper sex-role behavior. Marty would be viewed as he passed through that stage with no problem. 2) According to the Big Five personality traits Mike was careless, impulsive and disorganized. He was always in trouble and had absolutely no cares in the world. He would be rated highly in openness to experience and lowly in conscientiousness, highly in extraversion and lowly in agreeableness, and highly in neuroticism or emotional stability. Marty was quite, sympathetic, kind and appreciative, stable, calm, secure, and did not drink alcoholic beverages. He would be rated highly in openness to experience, highly in conscientiousness and lowly in extroversion, highly in agreeableness and in neuroticism or emotional stability. 3) Given that Mike and Marty are twins and share some of their genetic makeup, but I do not believe they have pronounced difference in personality. It was determined that genes do play a part in our personality, but both......

Mike Carona: Amercia's Sheriff?

...Carona” (Coker). Michael S. "Mike" Carona is a convicted felon and former Sheriff-Coroner of Orange County, California. According to the OC Register, as a convicted felon, Mike Carona is currently collecting $195,120 annually from his pension. For Mike Carona crime did pay. But how is this possible? Authors Saavedra, Schwebke, and Tillman stated a new state law that only became effective in 2006 denies a public pension to any public official convicted of wrongdoing in office. Due to this law, if Carona is convicted, he would be denied benefits accumulated from January 2006 through his leaving office, which is just one year. This means Carona will still collect the majority of his pension. The thought of anyone convicted of crimes receiving a public pension has not gone unseen. Chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors at the time, John Moorlach confirmed that Carona would indeed still receive his pension when asked about it. Moorlach sarcastically stated "I think working for the county is wonderful. If you're indicted, you still get your pension" (OC Register). Moorlach led county supervisors to file suit to repeal the pension. The suit was rejected and is now pending appeal. Furthermore, there was a petition to put Carona’s pension back into OC schools, however nothing was been done yet and Carona is still collecting. In a matter of time Carona went from “America’s Sherriff” to convicted felon. How did this happen? It all started when Mike Carona was appointed......

The Gray Area of Mike Brown

...The Gray Area of Mike Brown Every day, African American males encounter a law enforcement officer; whether it is for formal contact or just a passing by moment. At the time of contact, each party has a decision to make based on experience, stereotypes and his or her own personal fear. These perceived thoughts are not always intentional, but is a direct reflection of the learned behavior that has become the muscle memory of their actions. At some point, the population must be willing to look beyond those things that limit or hinder the ability to see what is outside of the blinders that are being worn. With the case of Mike Brown, there were several documented opportunities that both parties could have benefited from, by having additional training and decision-making skills to prevent that fatal turn of events. There is a dire need for sensitivity training within law enforcement as it relates to cultural traditions, habits or tendencies. However, there is also a need for a re-identification of social standards and those things deemed acceptable socially within the African American community. As a law enforcement officer, the oath is taken to protect and serve the occupants of the communities that they are assigned. With that being said, there should be an onus on each oath taking officer to know the persons and tendencies of those that occupy those communities. Assumingly, knowing the best method of communication seems beneficial. Also knowing the cause and effect of......

Mike Peng

...ways to grow their business. Economists have discussed the two most important issues in International Business are: - What drives firm strategy? - What determine the success and failure of firms around the world? Most of the times in International Business authors rely on two frameworks, namely institution based view (developed by Porter in 1980) and resources based view (exemplified by Barney in 1991). The first one explains that conditions within an industry determine firm strategy and performance, whereas the second one focuses on the firm specific differences. What Mike Peng found out is that these economists were ignoring formal and informal institutions that provide the context of competition among industries and firms (because they based their theories on a relatively stable market-based institutional framework). As a matter of fact, in “An institution-based view of international business strategy”, Mike Peng presents in a first part how institutions are the “third leg in strategy tripod” and what is the key question in international business. In a second part, he develops four diverse areas of substantive research regarding business in emerging economies, which are antidumping as entry barriers, competing in and out of India, growing a firm in China and finally governing a corporation in emerging economies....
