John Locke's Contributions

John Locke's contributions to the enlightenment had a great deal to do with the inspiration of America today. He was a philosopher who developed the philosophy that there were no legitimate government under the rights of kings theory. The king's theory is that god chooses the rulers and when the ruler is being challenged you are challenging god. Locke didn't think this was right so he wrote his own theory to challenge it. One idea in his theory was the power to be a governor to be granted by the people, maybe through voting. This is the basic formula for the political philosophy of liberalism- Locke's philosophy. Locke speaks of a state of nature where men are free, equal, and independent. He champions the social contract and government by consent. He goes even farther than Hobbes in arguing that the government must respect the rights of individuals. It was Locke's formula for limited government, more than Hobbes's, that inspired the Amercian Founding Fathers. The Founding Fathers, in the Declaration of Independence, speak of both natural laws and natural rights. Locke does likewise. Natural right and natural law may be combined, but if they are, one must take precedence over the other. Either the individual's right, or his duty to moral law, must come first. Equality is the driving force of Locke's political theory because it is the basis for our consensual participation in society, a requisite for the establishment of any state. As such, equality is not just necessary in the establishment of government but is also a requisite in maintaining a safe and stable nation. Locke describes the responsibility of the government (specifically the legislative power) as "the preservation of the society, and of every person in it" (Locke, Two Treaties of Government, 322), showing his belief…...

Minors usually need the consent of at least one parent or other authorized adult to receive medical treatment but minors in certain situations can consent to some types of reproductive health and pregnancy related treatment on their own behalf. If a minor is getting treatment with the help of insurance, then the parent of the minor is involved and is aware of the services received. If the minor is concerned about involving his or her parents, other resources for payment are sought. Clinics such as Planned Parenthood provide assistance in family planning, abortion, and pregnancy services. The Adolescent Family Life Program is a free program available in California.

Organizational Pattern: Topical I. Introduction A.Attention Getter: Imagine yourself in an arena, surrounded by encouraging team mates, supportive coaches, and thousands of fans screaming your name. Imagine all stereotypes being broken down, and competing for the pure love of the sport. B.Relevance: Swimming is one of 32 sports offered in the Special Olympics, and one of the most popular sports in the world. From 1968 to today, the Special Olympics have provided a place for people with disabilities to thrive and compete in fairly. As stated in the article, Changing Attitudes, on the Special Olympics website, “They are often ignored, neglected and excluded from schools and society. Special Olympics may be the only place where people with intellectual disabilities get the chance to become part of their communities and develop belief in themselves.” From our high school sports and activities, to watching the Olympics on T.V., the Special Olympics is a unifying activity that we can all relate to in one way or another.

Special Place

...Alex Keith My Special Place Transitioning from high school to college is a lot of work and it takes a lot of focus to succeed. To be successful I think you need somewhere to relax and to study and just do whatever you want to do. This place is my special place, my dorm room. My dorm room is an amazing place where amazing things happen, day in and day out. My dorm is set up exactly like my real room at home, which is also why I’m so comfortable in it. Every time I walk into my dorm room I feel like I’m at home in Columbia, and that really calms me down and sort of makes me feel like my parents are close to me in a way. Being comfortable in my room is why I can study so well in it, because I usually cant study or do work anywhere. My room is also the best place to triage for me. There’s nothing better to me then lying in bed watching Netflix while I try to prioritize what homework I should do at that moment. I could do it all day, and I wish I really could. After I’m done triaging, I simply just lie in my bed and think. Thinking in my room is great because I don’t have to do anything. My mind floats and bounces off the pictures and posters on my walls, I think about the most interesting things when I’m alone in that room. My room has been the most important place to me at the U for the first 4 months that I’ve been here, and I hope it’s always the most important place to me while I’m at the U. My room has made my college experience great, because of all the great......

Special People and Special Needs

...Special People and Special Needs According to the California Department of Education, a special population is one that fits into one of the following criteria: “Individuals with disabilities; individuals from economically disadvantaged families, including foster children; individuals preparing for nontraditional training and employment; single parents, including single-pregnant women; displaced homemakers; and individuals with other barriers to educational achievement, including individuals with limited English proficiency ("Special Populations", 2014).” Many of the homeless fall into more than one category of Special Populations. The National Healthcare for the Homeless Council (2014) adopts the U .S. Department of Health and Human Services’ definition of what it means to be homeless stating a homeless person is, “ an individual who lacks housing (without regard to whether the individual is a member of a family), including an individual whose primary residence during the night is a supervised public or private facility (e.g., shelters) that provides temporary living accommodations, and an individual who is a resident in transitional housing.” Homelessness does not discriminate against age, adults and children are homeless. The most common causes of homelessness is a lack of affordable housing, poverty, unemployment, substance abuse, and mental illness ("Facts And Figures: The Homeless", 2010). As of 2009, one in 50 children in America were homeless, or approximately...

By answering these questions I hope to show you how important it is to have the right resources to assist the client. What populations have you reviewed and which one have you selected? I reviewed and have selected developmental disabilities population for my special population paper How and why have you selected this population? How was this area of interest formed? I want to say developmental disabilities population has selected me to be a part of their population. I am very luck to work for a wonderful agency call HeartShare Human Services of New York. I was never interested in working in the developmental disabilities field because I was afraid of the unknown of the population. I thought the worst of this population, I though about the bad behavior, diaper changing, and taken a client down in public. To my surprise my clients are so far from the stereotype I had in my mind. HeartShare has helped New Yorkers develop to their fullest potential and lead meaningful lives. We are a community-based organization providing a wide range of services to children and adults with developmental disabilities, families in crisis, and people with HIV/AIDS. Our mission is to help each person we assist become as independent as possible. HeartShare serves more than 25,000 New Yorkers......

Special Needs

...Special Needs. People with disabilities? Or disabled people? There are ongoing and unresolved debates about ways to talk about disability. “Defining disability is a difficult task. A multitude of perceptions surrounds the question of what constitutes a disability, and a disability to one person can be a typical part of life to the next.”(Jingwen’s article) We are aware of arguments made by some of the activist movement that “disability” is not only such a primary but such a valued aspect of identity(also of social perception).From this point of view ”disabled” doesn’t signify “damaged” identity. Brief concept of Socio-Historical Context of Disability in Canada. From the beginning able-bodied people have historically controlled where disabled people live and how they receive their basic needs. In the Middle Ages, disabled persons were usually cared by family members with support from the church and community (referred to the book).These developments were described as the charity model, which continues to have powerful impact even today. Back then the disabled person is considered an object to be pitied because he or she could neither fit into a society mainstream nor care for his or herself. In the late 18th century the tendency towards disabled people has been changed. Society response was to build large institutions where people with disabilities were accommodated. The further outcome of this movement was the full control of all daily activities and consequent loss of...

Special Interest

...Flynn, 2015). The government provides individuals with Medicaid and free services; and business owner’s subsidies such as property abatements, and corporate income tax credits and rebates. According to Chris Edwards (2009), the government spends more than $3.5 trillion a year providing subsidy programs to state and local governments, individuals, businesses, and nonprofit groups (para. 4). Therefore, special interests repeatedly accomplish their goal because of the subsidy programs offered by the government and lobbyists. Most of them set up right on the White House steps to advocate their issues to convince policy makers to go alongside their conquests. One great example, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the organization select lawmakers who share the same belief - to protect women’s rights to choose to make the right private decision that could affect their future lives (Vote Smart, 2015). NARAL chose 80 government officials that believe in women’s rights. The goal is to guarantee that women make the right choice about abortion without government intervention. Therefore, special interests can succeed in perpetuating policies by performing the same steps done in Guyana; campaign for a new bill similar to the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Bill (Nunes, & Delph, 1995). This can be done by campaigning on the reasons for the bill and invite people with research, medicine, theology, law, logic, social working skills to communicate the many issues that women are faced with to......

What can the average American do to stay involved in the political arena and not have to wait for the next election? There is one significant way of influencing American government and that is through an Interest Group. Interest Groups also known as advocacy groups, lobbying groups or special interest, are in place to persuade or prevent changes in public policies. They exist for the solemn purpose of conveying the views and defending the interest of a part of society to public officials. There are all types of interest groups in America from animal rights groups to public interest groups to citizen groups. Interest groups get there start when James Madison developed the theme in “The Federalists (No. 10). In it he discussed factions, which was his term for interest groups and Madison believed that will always have diverse interest especially when it comes to economic circumstances and property ownership. Even though interest groups can be found deeply rooted in many different traditions and cultures such as Germany, they are common threads that can be observed in the development of interest groups mostly in Western industrial societies. There are about four phases in which the development of interest groups can be viewed. In what is called the first phase or the preindustrial phase beginning in the 1830s to the 1870s,......

...Special Populations University of Phoenix BSHS 402 Many populations in and outside of human services can utilize the skills and services of a case manager, however, there are many special populations in the realm of human services that require a case manager. Populations that were determined to need a case manager were the elderly, poverty stricken, mental/emotional disabilities, speech pathology, and drug exposed infants. Though each of these populations needs a multitude of services and a case manager, those with mental and emotional disabilities can benefit exponentially with the aid and expertise of a case manager to ensure that needs are met for those clients that cannot or do not understand what needs should be met.
