The Scarlet Letter

...meanings for different characters as well. Specifically, Hawthorne indicates that the “A” signifies “Adultery”, “Able”, and “Angel”. Additionally, throughout The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne suggests that the letter “A” signifies abandonment in that Hester abandons traditional Puritan society and her femininity, and she is abandoned by Dimmesdale when he reaches salvation and ultimately dies. When Hester commits adultery, she immediately abandons the strict Puritan ideals of the society that surrounds her. In this theocratic society, where “religion and law were almost identical,” a sin is equivalent to a crime and is therefore severely looked down upon (35). Hester demonstrates her rejection of Puritan society by acting by her own free will: “she repelled him, by action marked with natural dignity and force of character, and stepped into the open air, as if by her own free-will” (36). In Puritan society, there is no free will. The concept of predestination confirms that the choice of whether a person is going to heaven or hell is already made and therefore, one’s actions cannot change that decision. Bearing the elegantly embroidered scarlet letter on her chest and her illegitimate baby on her bosom, Hester proudly demonstrates to society her abandonment of their ideals and her decision to exercise her own free will. Hester’s decision to remain in Boston ironically demonstrates her rejection of Puritan society. Instead of letting society take over her life and drive her away......

Baby Abandonment

...Abandonment of babies Nowadays„ a disturbing social malady has surfaced. Due to unwanted pregnancies, the number of babies being abandoned has proliferated. This heinous act, as termed by many, must be looked into seriously and measures ought to be taken by all parties to curb this problem. As teenagers are impressionable, impulsive and immature, more often than not, they indulge in sexual activities without realizing its consequences. Therefore, to blame and punish them entirely of this dire situation may well seem too simplistic, as they might not have understood their own wrong doings. On the contrary, what we must do is to educate them about sex. The school, for instance has to play a more active role in educating the students about sex. Though it may seem rather embarrassing to discuss sex, especially to those who are conservative in thought, prevention is always better than cure. it might be too late to impart this knowledge on safe sex once they get pregnant. Therefore, student must be taught how to practice safe sex to avoid unwanted pregnancies and hence avoiding abandonment of babies as well. Apart from that, various social groups must play a more active role in society. For a start, these organizations must have qualified counselors who are able to give professional advice to young couples who have got themselves in trouble. This is imperative as one wrong spoken word could lead to mere harm than good. They should never despised them but on the other hand......

Lost Innocents

...they are mostly overcrowded and under staffed. More animals get euthanized inside the shelter due to lack of space than adopted by potential lifelong owners in the animal shelter. The animal shelter should not be used as a way to ease guilt on the former owners’ conscience. It should not be used as a dump site or a place to put your older animal like you would a senior citizen in a nursing home. Is animal abandonment ethically and morally wrong no matter what the circumstances? It would depend on each individuals’ specific upbringing and belief system. Does Utilitarianism apply in the matter of abandonment? Does Deontology play a role in decision making? Does all of this mean that as long as a companion animal is put in a better home than you provided that the act of abandonment is alright to choose? It all would depend on your moral values. Ask yourself this question. Would you abandon your child under the same circumstances in the same manner? Are you more of a virtue ethicist or a believer in ethical egoism? In this research paper, I will attempt to show why abandonment should never be an easy answer and how much to it there actually is whenever accepting a new four legged pet into an individual’s home. I will also show how morals and ethics play a huge part in the pet adoption process. Adding a four legged member to your family is a major decision. Before you run into that adorable pound puppy face or that cute little ball of fur, you need to ask yourself a few......

Why Do Parents Abandon Their Children

...single parents, financial instability, and low income homes, absence of one of the parents, mothers prostituting, mental or drug abuse problems and parents whose work ethics rain supreme to their children. Understanding abandonment laws will also help differentiate between child abandonment and the act of a parent placing a child in a better environment that they were unable to provide what it takes to be a parent. Some women neglect their children because may have been raped or just experienced a bad relationship with a male. Because of those past issues the women do not want any memories from her experience and never want to address that part of life anymore. It is bad in most cases because the child is the one that will be affected the most. Let’s take a look at the abandonment laws set in the United States. This law not only focuses on the physical abandonment of a child, however it includes extreme emotional abandonment. The child abandonment law in the United States of Georgia states it is a misdemeanor to willfully and voluntarily abandon a child, and a felony to abandon one’s child and leave the state upheld by the United States Supreme Court. Many surveys have said anywhere from 7,000 to 15,000 children face abandonment a year.

Determinants of Cart Abandonment

...—an issue that perplexes online retailers and has yet to be explained by scholars. Here, we identify key drivers to online cart abandonment and suggest cognitive and behavioral reasons for this non-buyer behavior. We show that the factors influencing consumer online search, consideration, and evaluation play a larger role in cart abandonment than factors at the purchase decision stage. In particular, many customers use online carts for entertainment or as a shopping research and organizational tool, which may induce them to buy at a later session or via another channel. Our framework extends theories of online buyer and non-buyer behavior while revealing new inhibitors to buying in the Internet era. The findings offer scholars a broad explanation of consumer motivations for cart aban- donment. For retailers, the authors provide suggestions to improve purchase conversion rates and multi-channel management. Keywords Online shopping cart abandonment . Online buyer behavior theory. E-tail .E-commerce To more fully understand buyer behavior, it is crucial to also examine consumer “non-buying” behavior. Non- buying behavior is especially apparent in an online retailing context, where many shoppers place items in their virtual shopping carts yet do not complete the purchase—thereby abandoning their cart. Known as virtual or online shopping cart abandonment, we define this behavior as consumers’ placement of item(s) in their online shopping cart without making a purchase of any......

His plane lands and we watch for him to come down the escalator to where we are waiting. He's not smiling, but looking very tired and irritable.

Themes in Death of a Salesman: Abandonment

...July 7, 2014 | Death of a Salesman: Abandonment | | | Dr. Haim Ginott, a well-known child psychologist once said “Children are like wet cement. Whatever falls on them makes an impression.” An individual of young age is highly susceptible to their environment, especially to the first agent of socialization: family. Without the natural stimuli one gets at a young age from their parents, that allows growth and understanding of norms, people will have difficulty with many human functions that come normally to others. In particular children who have experienced the loss of a parent undergo such difficulties. They tend to feel abandoned and as a result carries this fear of abandonment throughout their lives; consequently affecting their ability to develop healthy relationships. Arthur Miller explores this theme of abandonment in his play Death of a Salesman through the life of William“Willy”Loman, using father-son relationships. The author demonstrates how an individual like Willy who was abandoned in the past has insecurities caused by such trauma, which can affect their future.   At the tender age of 3, Willy and his older brother Ben were abandoned by their father, who had left for Alaska. Willy who was young at that time never had the chance to fully understand what a “father” actually was, as he didn’t know his own. In act 1, when Ben enters the scene the two brothers begin to reminisce about old times and Willy shows his curiosity and lack of knowledge about......

Adverse Trend

...Adverse Trend: Telecare Abandonment of Calls Cindy Roloff HCS/482 August 4, 2014 Lynn Bertsch Adverse Trend: Telecare Abandonment of Calls Utilization of data to resolve an adverse trend is a form of process improvement that has a basis in factual and representable information. Upon identification of an adverse trend, there must be relevant data collection to determine an etiology prior to taking action. Technology can assist with this search to expedite the improvement process. The purpose of this paper is to discuss applying technology to create an objective response to the adverse trend of abandoned calls in the Telecare clinical setting.

The Effects of Child Abandonment

...Running Head: THE EFFECTS OF CHILD ABANDONMENT The Effects of Child Abandonment Shawna Upchurch Liberty University Abstract- This is about children being abandoned not only in Romania but also all over the world. Most of the time it is from birth but sometimes the child could be older. It gives you an idea about what happens to children when they are abandoned mostly in Romania. How they are places and what is being done to prevent this from happing worst then what it already is. Key Terms: Children abandonment, Romania, United States, Vilonia. Child abandonment is a major issue in the world not just in one country or in one year. It can happen at any time of any day in any country around the world. Some would just focus on one city or country like in the research by Rebeca Scorcia Popescu. Her article focuses on children between the ages of 0-3 years old in Romania from the years of 2003-2013. In this article she speaks about what cause abandonment and what is being done about it to decrease the numbers. In the introduction she stated that “in Romania children are abandoned usually by their own parents in different institutions.” (Popescu,(2016) pg. 1) This is true with any children that are abandoning. Most of the time it is by the parents because most are too young or they do not want children. If the parents leave the child after birth somewhere besides a place that can help them, then that child life could be at risk. In Vilonia, Arkansas that was a......

Child Abandonment

...------------------------------------------------- Child Abandonment Law & Legal Definition Child abandonment is the practice of abandoning one's child outside of legal adoption. An abandoned child is called a foundling. Child abandonment is a criminal offense under state laws, which vary by state. In some states, a parent considering abandonment may be able to take the child to a safe place where they will not be prosecuted. Child abandonment may lead to murder, manslaughter or aggravated abuse charges. Poverty is the cause of many abandonment cases. The following is an example of a state law governing child abandonment: Child Abandonment. (a) A person commits the offense of child abandonment when he or she, as a parent, guardian, or other person having physical custody or control of a child, without regard for the mental or physical health, safety, or welfare of that child, knowingly leaves that child who is under the age of 13 without supervision by a responsible person over the age of 14 for a period of 24 hours or more, except that a person does not commit the offense of child abandonment when he or she relinquishes a child in accordance with the Abandoned Newborn Infant Protection Act. (b) For the purposes of determining whether the child was left without regard for the mental or physical health, safety, or welfare of that child, the trier of fact shall consider the following factors: 1. the age of the child; 2. the number of children left at the......

...the negative coefficient on earnings for loss firms is a manifestation of that misspecification. Furthermore, we provide evidence on three competing explanations for the role that book value of equity plays in valuing loss firms. Specifically, we investigate whether the importance of book value in cross-sectional valuation models stems from its role as (1) a control for scale differences (Barth and Kallapur 1996), (2) a proxy for expected future normal earnings (Ohlson 1995; Penman 1992), or (3) a proxy for loss firms’ abandonment option (Berger et al. 1996; Barth et al. 1996; Burgstahler and Dichev 1997). Our results do not support the conjecture that the importance of book value in cross-sectional valuation stems primarily from its role as a control for scale differences. Rather, the results are consistent with book value serving as a value-relevant proxy for expected future normal earnings for loss firms in general, and as a proxy for abandonment option for loss firms most likely to cease operations and liquidate. Equity Valuation and Negative Earnings: The Role of Book Value of Equity ABSTRACT: This study provides an explanation for the anomalous significantly negative price-earnings relation using the simple earnings capitalization model for firms that report losses. We hypothesize and find that including book value of equity in the valuation specification eliminates the negative relation. This suggests that the simple earnings capitalization model......
