Different Forms of Discrimination
February 01, 2016

Abstract What is considered discrimination? Discrimination is the practice of unfairly treating an individual or group differently from other individuals or groups of people. (Merriam-Webster.) Discrimination is not right or fair to the individuals that are being targeted. We have seen in the last few years that law enforcement officials have been accused of discrimination against minorities especially African-Americans. We will be discussing and comparing three forms of discrimination used today by our policing agencies; institutionalized, contextual and individual acts of discrimination. Our discussion group discussed growing up what races targeted who when committing crimes. The discussion and the data provided by the Department of Justice is almost the same when discussing crimes and what each ethnic group targets to commit the crimes.

Institutionalized Discrimination Institutionalized discrimination refers to the unwarranted and discrimination mistreatment of an individual or group of individuals by society and within the institutions as a whole. (Flat World Knowledge) At times when someone is being discriminated against it can be mindful and intentional by the individual that is doing it. Institutional discrimination is already built into the culture or institution and the individual that is perpetuating the discrimination may not even know that they are doing it. Institutional discrimination is already found in the normal everyday relationships within institutions and its continuance requires individuals to continue everyday business as usual and ignoring the fact that they are discriminating against a certain race. Law enforcement officials may not know that they are doing this because in their daily patrols they only come across a certain race…...

Describe and Explain the Different Forms of Church Governance in Zimbabwe

...Describe and explain the different forms of church governance in Zimbabwe Governance is a set of policies, power and structure by which the rights, powers and privileges of people are processed and protected. The term “government” refers to the management, administration, rule or direction, control, command, authority or leadership which processes and sees to the implementation of these policies. The Church government is set to manage and control the privileges of the children of God e.g. prosperity, healing etc. Simplified, it is the organization pattern by which the church movement or congregation rules, controls or directs itself. Even in the church in Zimbabwe, there are different forms of governments because of different understandings of scripture. * Episcopal form of government This is also known as the hierarchical form. The word Episcopal comes from the words “Epis/ epic” which means top and “scopos” which means to see, look or sight. This means that there is a man at the top to oversee what is happening below him. The principal officer in this type of government is the Bishop/overseer who is followed by a Priest/ Presbyter/ elder and then the deacons. The Bishop has a right to ordain the elder and he governs the church. Every decision at local level comes from the Bishop at Head office. It’s not a scriptural system but simply draws from the fact that in the Bible Moses was an overseer, followed by Aaron the High Priest. There were also elders who helped......

Different Forms of Transportation

...Matthew Hecker Mr. McIntire Public Speaking 2 2 November 2012 Alternative Forms for Transportation With the rising gas prices, more and more people have turned to other forms of transportation to save every dollar to make it through this hard economy. Many have turned to public forms of transportation, such as busses or trains. Others have taken up another growing form of transportation, carpooling. Some have even taken it upon themselves to get a bicycle, or walk, which would be means of free transportation. But a slowly developing way of cheap transportation is converting your car to an alternative fuel source. Many cars have become hybrids, which use electricity as well as gas, but what other possibilities are there? There are many different forms of alternative fuels for transportation, which come with many advantages as well as many disadvantages. There are several forms of ways to get from one place to another without gasoline. The top forms of alternative fuels include: electricity, hybrids, hydrogen, bio diesel, and E85. Electric cars run off solely electricity. They work harder to convert energy from the grid to power at the wheels. Electric cars convert about 59-62% where gasoline powered cars only convert about 17-21%. They emit no pollutants into the environment such as gasoline powered cars. Hybrid cars run off of two or more distinct types of power. The most common type of "Electric Vehicles." Electric Vehicles. US DEPT OF ENERGY, 06 Nov. 2012.......

Different Forms in U.S.Schools

...5-2-2013 What different forms can segregation take in US schools? When we hear the word segregation the first thought that comes to mind is usually about color. In this case there are a lot of different forms of segregation. One of the different types of segregation are the classes that they offer for girls and boys. One of the classes for girls is the Child development class which consists of teaching students how to be babysitters, what to do in case of emergency, how to feed a baby, change them, and care for them. Boys say that they should be able to register for the class, but know they will be harassed by the girl students in the class if they are allowed. Another class which usually is only offered to the boys is workshop. This class consists of how to make different things like wood work boxes, mailboxes, carpentry, doing flooring work, and working outside. Girls say they do not want to be a part of a class like that it’s usually for the guys to handle that type of class. Although there were a few girls say they are interested in signing up for the class. The girl students that were interested said they did not want to be wanting for a guy to do something like that when they can do it themselves. There is a test that these students have to take to get in these classes because they can be transferred into college credits. When can these methods affirm diversity and when are they detrimental to learning? Consider economic segregation, culturally-based......

The first step in performing an attack is to plan the attack by identifying the target and learning as much as possible about it. Hackers usually perform an initial reconnaissance and probing scan to identify IP hosts, open ports, and services enabled on servers and workstations. In this lab, you will explore the Virtual Security Cloud Lab (VSCL). You will learn how to access several different applications, including PuTTY and the Zenmap Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the Nmap Security Scanner application.

“a Case to Which No Parallel Exists”: the Influence of Darwin’s Different Forms of Flowers

...“The benefit which heterostyled dimorphic plants derive from the existence of the two forms is sufficiently obvious, namely, the intercrossing of distinct plants being thus ensured. Nothing can be better adapted for this end than the relative positions of the anthers and stigmas in the two forms…” —Darwin, 1877 (p. 30) Heterostyly is defined as the occurrence in a species of two or more floral morphs that exhibit reciprocal herkogamy (cf. Barrett and Shore, 2008) (“Herkogamy is the spatial separation of pollen presentation and pollen receipt within or between blossoms of an individual plant.” [Webb and Lloyd, 1986]). Heterostyly is often associated with other physiological and structural characters, such as self- and intramorph-incompatibility (SI) and pollen and stigma polymorphisms (Richards, 1997; Barrett et al., 2000a; Barrett and Shore, 2008). Indeed, Darwin’s definition of heterostyly (1877) specified the presence of self- and intramorph-incompatibility in addition to the morphological differences. Furthermore, the features of the heterostylous syndrome only rarely disassociate in the progeny of heterostylous species (Darwin, 1877;Ernst, 1928, 1936a, 1936b). Researchers have demonstrated that in some taxa this tight linkage is due to the presence of a supergene, which they hypothesize to include the genes involved in the development and function of heterostyly (e.g., Dowrick, 1956; Barrett and Shore, 2008), although in other taxa, the tight linkage between the......

...LEGAL FORMS OF BUSINESS Preferred Form of Business for Different Business Scenarios Abstract Either when starting a business, or even when the venture parameters have changed, owners must decide in regard to the most suitable business structure for their needs. Whether the business will be a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company (LLC) or corporation, it depends on the type of business, how many owners it has, and its financial situation. There is no one choice that suits every business situation. This paper analyses several of the most important factors to be considered when deciding in regard to the business structure, including: • Potential risks and liabilities of the business • Formalities and expenses involved in establishing and maintaining the various business structures • Owners’ income tax situation, and • Capital investment needs.
