The purpose of this paper is to respond to philosophical questions in numerous categories. First I will address metaphysics which deals with what is and is not real. Secondly, epistemology addresses the study of knowledge. Next, I will discuss ethics and the right and wrong of different scenarios. Further, in the category of aesthetics, I will delve into the idea of beauty. The role of government will be discussed in political philosophy. Finally, I will talk about my beliefs concerning social philosophy. PHILOSOPHY 201
IP UNIT 1 When pondering the questions outlined in the instructions for this assignment, I found the metaphysics section to be one I was comfortable with. Soloman & Higgins (2010) state that an individual who is religious accepts that God is real and everything else flows from Him. I am in complete agreement with that statement. As I was struggling with my coming of age, I questioned “what is real?” In searching for the answer to that question, I came to realize that everything is real and a creation of God. Being a Christian, I just accept this in faith and do not look any deeper into it. I believe the physical and psychological world is just as real as the spiritual world. Without question, everyone has a soul. While we are alive and inhabiting this physical world, the soul does not exist outside of the physical body. However, once the physical body dies, the soul then moves into the afterlife, which in my belief, my soul will enter into Heaven. It is my belief that God made us in His image and instilled in us free will. Nothing happens in our life by fate, it happens by the will of God. I hesitate to think what we would do or become if our lives were determined by fate. Epistemology is the study of knowledge and justified belief. I can remember as a child I was very inquisitive and always asking my Dad questions. He…...

...Margaret Burnett IP English Human Trafficking Margaret Burnett AIU-Online Pro. Slotemaker Thesis: While Human trafficking is the second and fastest growing criminal industry in the world, we must find ways to stop this brutal crime. This article, “Forced Sex and labor Trafficking,” by Rebecca Clarren, talks about the investigations into human trafficking. The feminist groups plays a large part in helping with human trafficking. In 2000, Congress passed the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), which gives a special “T-vista”, that lets victims of sex and labor trafficking to remain temporarily in the U.S., and agree to assist in the investigation and prosecution of their traffickers, after 3 years , the attorney general will give them permanent residence. But it didn’t last long, for the Bush administration had failed to fund its provision in a way that was meaningful. There has been such a lack of traffic investigations, 639 were opened by the Department of Justice between 2001 and 2006. Yet only 360 defendants were charged and only 238 convictions. My assessment on the integrity of this article is that the information is accurate and to the point. The author is legitimate. I definitely find that it is public service information. I will use this information because it is stating why human trafficking is in a slow process of being solved. This article, The Crusade Against Sex Trafficking, by Noy Thrupkaeu, is about efforts that are trying to......

There are three major figures that led to this development they are Ivan Pavlov, John B. Watson, and B.F. Skinner. Behaviorism is developed with the order that only observations that satisfied the criteria of the scientific method were to be allowable as evidence. One of the hypotheses many behaviorists hold is that free will is an illusion. As the result of this behaviorism orders that all behavior is determined by a combination of genetic factors and the environment is either through classical or operant conditioning. Classical conditioning is a technique used in behavioral training in which a naturally occurring stimulus is paired with a response. Operant conditioning is a method of learning that occurs......

They are both companies that can provide the service of trading stocks. Each company is open to the public and gains profits for their shareholders. NYSE and NASDAQ are both regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Within each company the trading of stocks is done by traffic controllers, and these two companies account for a huge share of trading in the United States.

Both the NYSE and NASDAQ have differences from one another. The first major difference happens to be in their mission statements of the companies. The NYSE mission statement is as follows, “The mission of the NYSE is to add value to the capital-raising and asset management process by providing the highest-quality and most cost-effective self-regulated marketplace for the trading of financial instruments , promote confidence in and understanding of that process and serve as a forum for discussion of relevant national and international policy issues”.

...Would You Rather Live in Ignorant Bliss or the Horrible Truth? Liberty University Online Phil 201: Fall Semester 2014 Most of us have watched the movie, “The Matrix.” What some people might not know is that this is not a new concept. There have been philosophers, namely Plato and Descartes, who have been pondering concepts like this, way before the movie was released. Is there a way to prove that the world we live in is real, and not just some sort of dream? Can we trust the five senses that we depend on so much? How can we be sure that how we live, where we live, and what we live for is real? Let’s explore. The Matrix talks about how we are all being deceived in this world, being hooked up to brain stimulating cable that produces the lives we know in our minds. Descartes played with the same question but found a different solution. “From this foundational idea, Descartes went on to argue for the existence of God, who would not, due to his goodness, allow us to be continually deceived by an evil demon.” (Dew, p.152) What I got from Descartes’ words was; what would be the point? God created us, he loves us; He is good, so why would he want to deceive us for our entire lives, what is the point? Plato’s concept is very similar to the creation of The Matrix. Through a dialogue, he was questioning the fact of reality. Stating that what if we were all just standing in one spot, forced to look in only one direction, the only things we saw were objects......

...BUSN310 Introduction to Business Ethics IP#1 Donna Rothmann-Ranels American Intercontinental University Abstract This paper will discuss the steps that should be taken to present the issue of potentially defective product to the CEO of a company. A meeting is coming up with the CEO and other executives and I need to address the issue of potentially defective products that are being sold to customers. First when I am talking to the executives I need to state the facts. Once I have presented the facts I will state the solutions I have come up with to counteract these issues. If I have not come up with a solution I would open the floor for discussion on how to take care of the issues at hand. I would empathize that is important and could be damaging to the company’s image. Once I have completed my presentation of the issues I would thank them for allowing me to discuss this matter with them and for any suggestions they came up with. Notifying the customer is a top priority. I would first ask the customer to return the product for a refund or an exchange for another product. I would announce the recall through the media, i.e., the radio and television. I would also put an ad in the local newspaper announcing the recall of the specific product. If we had the email information for some customers I would send out an email stating the facts and asking customers to return the defective product. Lastly I would post the recall information on the company......

...Abstract This paper explains my view on the “War on Terror” and the effects that it has had on our freedoms in America and ways we can change the “War on Terror” to gain our freedom back and maybe help secure our country in a more effective way. Introduction While we have the more freedom and rights than most countries our freedoms have definitely been effective in recent years due to the September 1, 2001; with the on terror and the efforts to make our country safer, Americans have been more willing to give up many more freedoms in exchange for this safety. My Topic is: The “War on Terror” has become a war on American Freedoms, and my Thesis is: The “War on Terror” has reduced more of our freedoms in America and has done little to catch Terrorist: we should eliminate the TSA and reevaluate all the other amendments that are being infringed upon and restore our freedom. Main Point 1: The idea behind the “War on Terror” was sparked by the events of September 11, 1999 when the World Trade Center was attack by terrorist, the idea behind it was a good one but failed in many ways. The American people are really the people that are punished the most by the “War on Terror”, we can no longer travel freely without being subjected to uncomfortable pat downs or invasive scanners by the TSA. Main Point 2: Why have flight restrictions with the TSA when our boarders are wide open? This makes no since, Americans are being restricted by flight, stopped at road blocks and checked for......

...Name: Writing Style Used: MLA Course and Section Number: THEO 201 Essay on Topic Short Essay on Inerrancy and Inspiration As a Christian I read the bible to grow closer to God, to understand who he is and what he is about. But understanding what the bible says is not the only thing that is important for a Christian, we must understand why we believe it. Understanding why we believe it comes from understanding its authority, its inerrancy, and its inspiration. First we must understand what gives the bible its authority. According to Merriam-Webster authority is the power to give orders or make decisions: the power or right to direct or control someone or something. The bible receives its authority because it is the revelation of God to us. “The authority of the Bible is established by its own claims. It is the word of God.” (Elwell, 2001). The Bible receives its authority because it is the word of God. Second we must understand the inspiration of the Bible. The Bible was written by many different men so we must see how this fits together. I believe that while the Bible was written by multiple men the ideas were all from God. I believe this because of the scriptures and what they say. For example 2 Peter 3:15-16 And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved. This is what our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you with the wisdom God gave him. The Bible tells us that the scriptures inspiration is God, and while it was written by multiple......

...Running Head: ACADEMIC HONESTY AND PLAGIARISM 1 Running Head: ACADEMIC HONESTY AND PLAGIARISM 2 People are sometimes accused of plagiarism, and some are unaware that they are plagiarizing unintentionally. Therefore, it is important for someone to learn to use the correct citations and paraphrasing to avoid unintentional plagiarism. In a 2007 article Avoiding Unintentional Plagiarism, (Foster 2007) “Avoiding plagiarism is simple, but for most of us, writing is difficult” (page #2). According to Foster, to avoid plagiarism, you must give credit whenever you use another person’s idea, opinion, theory, facts, information and quotations of another person’s spoken words (page #1). Foster is emphasizing that we must use proper citations in order to avoid plagiarism. Therefore, addressing the key elements of writing while to ensure academic honesty. For an example, one element is using the proper citation guidelines, therefore, “if you include a statement that is identical to the original work, either quote the material exactly and use quotation marks, or if you change words to better fit your style, omit the quotation marks but add the page number in the text citation” (page #1). The other element is telling the reader where the information came from, whether it’s referencing the author and article and or where you found it. By following this method, this will emphasis the originality of your work, therefore, giving the author credit. While plagiarism is...

...Abstract This paper will evaluate and demonstrate a manufacturing company options about launching a new product. This will be determined using the payback period that they plan to invest in this adventure. This will be performed by figuring out the company net present value and cash flow to determine if a project should be accepted within a three year payback period. The formula that was used to find the payback period was Payback Period = Investment (Total Cost of the Project) / Annual Cash Inflow. The formula used to calculate the net present value is as followed (1+r) ^t. Please click link to view excel spreadsheet for the assignment financial management unit 4 IP excell.xlsx. In order for a project to be accepted using the Payback rule the project according to Brooks, (2010) states that it is okay to accept a project if the payback period is less than maximum years the company is willing to accept. On that, same note if the payback period is longer than the three year that is required by the company then the project need to be rejected. For example, the payback period for this assignment is at 2.9 which mean that the project can be accepted because it is under the three years that the company requires. By the project being boarder line, I would like more clarity because if a person would round the payback period then the project would be denied.
