CPHL 612: POSSIBLE FINAL EXAM QUESTIONS The final exam consists of a set of FIVE essay questions, of which you are expected to answer THREE (and only three). So, to be clear, on the final exam you will be given a list of five questions and asked to answer just three of those five. In advance of the exam, I am posting here a longer list of POSSIBLE essay questions. The five questions on the actual exam (and therefore any three of those five that you may choose to answer) will be drawn from the set of possible questions below: (1) Contrast the legal philosophies of Hart and Fuller with respect to the notion of legal validity, making reference to the case of the “grudge informer”. Which position do you think is closer to the truth? Give reasons for your opinion. (2) Explain some of Dworkin’s main reasons for interpretivism. (Be sure to explain what “interpretivism” means here.) Do you think his theory is plausible? Give reasons for your opinion. (3) Explain and evaluate an argument for drug prohibition and an argument against drug prohibition. Discuss with reference to the case of R. v. Malmo-Levine and the case of R. v. Caine. Which argument do you think is more convincing? Give reasons for your opinion. (4) Explain some of the main reasons given by (some) feminists such as MacKinnon and Dworkin for making pornography illegal. Explain how their position differs from the simple “causal” argument. Do you think that their reasoning is correct? Give reasons for your opinion. (5) Explain and evaluate an argument for hate speech legislation and an argument against hate speech legislation. Discuss with reference to the Keegstra case. Which argument do you think is more convincing? Give reasons for your opinion. (6) The “sanctity of life” principle has often been central to debates about euthanasia. Explain at least two possible…...

...Can We Talk? Jeannie Chapman COM 200 Robert Givenrod January 14, 2013 After reading the article, Can We Talk? The researcher talks about the role of communication in marriages, my husband and I cannot relate with Nara Schoenberg understands of self-disclosure in relationships. We both have been together for 18 years and married 8 years. Almost, 15 years ago we both decided to take our oldest special needed grandson into our home and raise him as our own. We both did not really know what we were getting ourselves into, but we knew someone had to take care of him. We find out he is a child that has fetal alcohol syndrome. We both have dedicated our lives to our child needs. We both put our needs on the back burner at times. Even though my husband is 60 year old and I am 51 year old we both feel his needs come before ours. I believe the greatest gift I can conceive of having from anyone is to be seen by them, to be understood and touched by them. The greatest gift I can give is to see, hear, and understand and to touch another person. When this is done I feel contact has been made. Virginia Satir (1976) American author and psychotherapist (1916 – 1988) (Sole, 2011, page 145, chapter 7). According to Can We Talk, the researcher says most men need affective affirmation more than women do.

Because We Can, We Must.

...Because we can, we must. Bono is known for being the lead voice of the Irish band U2 and also taking the crown for passionate activist and humanitarian. He sits on the board of Elevation Partners and is known for co-founding DATA, EDUN, the ONE Campaign, and Product RED. This incredible man has been praised in many ways including being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, receiving an honorary knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II, and his greatest success being named Person of the Year in 2005. Bono has a few commencement speeches under his belt, and in 2004, he spoke of “betraying the age”, influencing graduates to take life by the horns and make a name for themselves. By using allusion, analogies, and anacoenosis, Bono calls a new generation to face the winding road ahead of them, life. “I was 17 when I first saw The Clash, and it just sounded like revolution… Later I learned that a lot of the rebels were in it for the T-shirt. They’d wear the boots but they wouldn’t march. They’d smash bottles on their heads but they wouldn’t go to something more painful like a town hall meeting”(Bono). Bono begins his speech by looking back on a time in his life when he was growing up and realizing how important everyone was to society, but how no one was taking a stand or doing anything about arising issues. Opening up to his audience through this allusion creates a connection between them. This relationship is kept as he makes his speech more about himself than the students. He talks a......

We Can, but Should We?

... We Can But Should We? Dara Shalom Chamberlain College of Nursing NR361-65561: Information Systems in Healthcare March 2013 We Can But Should We? “As healthcare embraces technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline operations, and lower costs, the technologies with the most impact are the ones that make things simpler” (Why and How). Various companies are trying to simplify the process of obtaining essential patient information with the use of quick response, or QR codes. These codes are placed on stickers, bracelets, and cards for wallets. When paramedics scan the QR code, they gain access to the patient’s health profile, which contains basic personal information, allergies, medications, and emergency contacts. With instant access to this vital information, medical errors are reduced, and the time that they would otherwise spend obtaining this information is cut. Some people believe that this is a wonderful advancement, and it “could benefit so many folks” (Davis), while others are concerned and skeptical about this new technology. Benefits One advantage of utilizing QR codes in emergency response situations is the shortened time spent obtaining vital patient health information. By cutting down time, paramedics are able to make treatment decisions more quickly. “Every second counts during medical emergencies, and quick access to medical information can be the difference between life and death” (Rich). Immediate access to the individuals medical......

Can We Battle a Hurricane?

...CAN WE BATTLE A HURRICANE? Late August and early September of 2004 will long be remembered in the annals of history. It was during this time that the tropical island nation of the Bahamas experienced, in less than a week, the awesome destructive force of Mother Nature. This destruction as the hands of hurricanes Francis and Jeanne, and every island in the chain had a taste of fury, although there were two, Abaco and Grand Bahama that could have been referred to as gluttons. The catastrophic damage left as these hurricane waltzed through the archipelago left many wondering whether we can really be prepared for natural disasters. We know full well that winter winds and seas relocate beaches, summer lightening storms can set fire to pine forest but no one really knows when the fury of a hurricane will land. We must, however, ensure that we are prepared as we cannot afford the 2004 estimate of $500 million every hurricane season. To counteract unexpected onslaughts we must: 1. Have adequate insurance coverage for our buildings and homes. 2. Ensure that elected officials upgrade and the Ministry of Works enforces building codes and 3. Create a viable preparation plan by a) Establishing organized volunteers b) Providing for the loss of work c) Creating rapid response directory d) Preventing shoddy construction e) Improving response time f) Establishing a government sponsored segregated fund No one knows when we may experience another angry......

We Can but We Should

...We Can But Should We: Quick Response Codes Quick Response (QR) Codes What is a Quick Response code? It’s a two- dimensional matrix/bar code. QR codes can provide a wide range of information to patients or family members on ones condition, or treatment. QR codes in turn can assist EMTs, or other healthcare providers with information about an individual such as allergies, blood type, DNR, emergency contacts, as well as other vital information that pertains to an individual (QR Codes in Education, n.d.). QR codes can be scanned or decoded by using quick response software or a scanner to access an individual’s information. With this easy process of accessing information it allows healthcare providers to be more efficient and more attentive with care provided to patients. Impact on Patient Care Delivery In the healthcare field time is of the essence when it comes to life and death situations. With QR codes medical responders are able to access important health information on individuals which in turn makes crucial health decisions simple. For example let’s say an emergency responder comes upon an individual who is not responsive (a diabetic but unknown to responders) as a result medical history such as allergies, medical problems or even current use of medication is now unknown. If this individual has a QR code then the responder is able to access all medical information allowing the responder to provide the best care possible without any major difficulties. Therefore these...

Oil: Can We Survive Without It?

...November 24, 2011 Oil: Can We Survive Without It? Oil production and inventions of alternative energy sources have been critically analyzed from the beginning of energy production. Alternatives such as wind power, water power, and solar cells are just a few of the many alternative energy sources that will be addressed and by providing factual evidence, their potential will be illustrated. When examining these touchy topics one major question can be addressed: how reliable will alternative energy sources be once oil is gone? Further examination of topics such as the efficiency of energy alternatives, accessibility of energy alternatives, the amount of energy alternatives available, the technology needed to obtain new energy alternatives, environmental concerns, and whether or not we should pursue alternative energy in the near future or if we can afford to wait, will help us answer the question of how reliable alternative energy sources will be once oil is gone. While alternative energy sources will be able to replace oil when it runs out, we can, for the time being, continue living as we do because the depletion of oil is not a concern for the immediate future. The negative effects of oil production on the environment have been a concern for many years; however, this statement can be refuted by new statistical evidence that is available today. When oil production was first introduced into society the harmful effects emitted into the environment were largely......

Can We Should We

...We Can But Should We Chamberlin College of Nursing NR361: Info Systems in Healthcare Abstract In this paper we begin with a short history of the Quick Reaction code (QR code) and move onto the QR code in marketing and how it can be similarly used in the healthcare field from advertising to take-home monitoring equipment for patients. We discuss a study conducted by Lin C, Tsai F, Tsai W, Wen H, & Hu M., 2012 and how the use of QR codes has help to decrease wait times in the pharmacy and actually increase accuracy of dispensing correct medications. After discourse on personal information we will end this paper with a few healthcare related ethical concerns. We come to the conclusion that QR codes could be beneficial to the public and private sectors of healthcare. Quick reaction codes (QR code) had their beginning in auto manufacturing plants in Japan in 1994; QR codes were designed to help track automobiles during the manufacturing process (Gottesman, & Baum, 2013). Like many other technologies, when shortly after their initial production, QR codes were found to be useful in many other areas than just automobile manufacturing. QR codes have recently been heavily used for marketing. The QR code is able to hold a significant amount of information and anyone with the correct tool to read the code is able to extract this information such as a website or such that for a consumer could lead to a shoe store, a hair salon, or even an electronics store. From auto......

Can We Live Where We Want

...Kye Karim Composition reading II Essay 3 3rd November 2014 Jeremy Rick Are we born with the right to live where we want? The United Kingdom of Great Briatain, is a group of countries that like to think they are independent. Despite this, the fact is they are merged to a much bigger picture of the European Union. The inclusion of the UK has drawn many positives over the years with the economy, easy holidays, simpler migration and more than anything help from the other large nations in the EU. People from areas outside of the EU like the USA or Asia, would have to get a visa issued to their passport before they can even have a holiday. For people holding passports for countries inside the EU, they can move freely with not much problem and get support in the countries they are travelling to. This was has been ok for many years but in recent times the joining of several smaller countries to the EU has brought an unprecedented influx of immigration to the shore of the UK that has quickly escalated into a national crisis. This is something that has only resulted in only minute positives, with the country now struggling to cope with the demand for jobs and housing causing a lot of anger amongst the people. The UK is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which are all considered highly developed courtiers in there own right.

Can We Talk?

...CAN WE TALK? The Role of Communication in Marriages Married couples in matrimony for several decades may lack communication. A couple married for 50 years having a sit down dinner will speak for only a few minutes out of an hour long sitting, researchers have show communication of happy marriages which consists of sharing intimate thoughts, uncertainties, distrust. When we observe a couple in a restaurant or another public setting. In 1987, a review in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy established elevated rates of self-disclosure were coupled with advanced rates of couple satisfaction. Appearance of love and sustainability was also associated to contented marriages. "Many couples think they're communicating with each other" when they sort out who will pick up the kids, pay the bills or call the grandparents, says Orbuch. But that's not the kind of communication she's talking about."In the (research) literature, as well as for my couples, communication means you're sharing and really getting to know one another," Orbuch says. (NARA SCHOENBER. Houston Chronicle. Houston, Tex.: Feb 5, 2011. pg. 7.) In research literature couple should communicatively share and get to know each other. When a couple set aside just ten minutes a day, which is recognized as the ten minute rule per Orbuch, is to cultivate......

We Can Love Too

...We Can Be Lovers Too In this day and age it seems that there is no romance left in our society. Sex is easily accessible with things like Internet porn and social media chatting, that we (as men) no longer have to try to attract a girl to us. The effort of romanticism is gone. The new generations of young men do not know what it means to show affection, romance or love. There still is some hope for romance and chivalry. Despite all of the social media distractions the young men in our society have to find a way to bring back the gentlemanship of generations past. Most of the time before two and a half years ago, 19 years old, I was one of those guys who I am talking about in this piece. I would go out to wild parties and hook up with girls whom I did not know the names of. My best friends and I would hang out, sit around talking about girls. We gossiped about the girls we had been with. Who ever got with the most girls was always the “coolest”. It was weird; back then, my definition of cool. My use of social media was strictly for finding new girls that I thought were hot and trying to hit on them through that social network. I would go on Facebook and Instagram seeing new and old couples thinking, “Ugh, that doesn’t look like fun, why would anyone want to be locked down like that?” Then go on with my day eating lunch either alone flirting with girls online. I enjoyed that time in my life though. I went through everyday, not giving a care about anything or anyone......

...Is It Worth the Risk? Social Media and Healthcare Robert Shaw NR360: Info Systems Chamberlain College of Nursing Fall 2015 Is It Worth the Risk? Social Media and Healthcare Social media has taken over the way that we interact with one another. It is leading the way in which we communicate with family, friends, coworkers and strangers. It is also the way we keep up with our favorite celebrities and gossip. Social media and the use of smartphones are becoming more prevalent in business and the healthcare field as well. According to Pew Research Center, “62% of smartphone owners have used their phone in the past year to look up information about a health condition” (April, 2015). Technology, just like all things come with flaws and setbacks. However, with the new technology being created every day, along with the increasing use of both smartphones and social media, using these outlets for patient-provider relationships can enhance overall patient trust and care. That being said, ensuring that patient privacy is not violated has to be the number one priority. Advances in technology and media can pose great triumphs for healthcare further down the road, as long as the appropriate measures are taken to ensure that HIPAA standards are being met at all times while using these outlets. Understanding HIPAA’s Guidelines for Securing Patient Information HIPAA’s Privacy Rule sets the guidelines for the use and disclosure of protected health information (HHS, n.d). This......

Can We Talk

...I can relate very well with the article on self-disclosure in a relationship. When I meet people for the first time I tend to open up about myself and what I want them to know right off. I will disclose what type of person I am which is down to earth and will be upfront with you about anything. I will let a person know how I feel about a situation and that I will not sugar coat the issue that I am dealing with. I also let them know that I am not a moody person, what they see is what they get each day. Being in a relationship I think it is very important to be self-disclosed because that is how people learn about each other’s. I also believe that some things you do not share and leave in the past especially if it’s not healthy for the future relationship. If the person wants a satisfaction relationship, self-disclosure has to in the picture. When you are in a relationship there are some things that you will not like the same, such as food, agree with the same movie to watch and no two people are alike. What may get on my nerves may not get on the other’s person nerve that is why self-disclosure is very important you get to know some of theirs likes and dislikes. The gender difference is so true when communicating. I can talk to my son and it seems like his mind is somewhere else and I have to say look at me when I am talking to you. On the other hand when I am talking to my daughter she looks at me the whole time I am talking to let me know she is listening to me. The......
