Feudalism

...Feudalism In 1066, Feudalism was established in England by William the Conqueror, and lasted a couple hundred years. “[It] organized society during a violent and lawless time after the fall of the Roman Empire” (pg. 10), often known as the Medieval, or Dark, Ages. Feudalism “… developed an economic, military, and government system that has never been duplicated in any other time or place in the world” (pg. 9). Even though those three systems had been created, there were still many problems with the structure as a whole, such as taxing the poorest class. Within the Feudal system there was an order of power that started with the Pope, followed by the King, Nobles, Vassals (Knights), Freemen, Yeomen, servants, and, at the very bottom, peasants/serfs. “… [The King of] England, for example, divided [his] entire [kingdom] into fifty of sixty fiefs…” (pg.9), or parcels of land, and granted them to Nobles and Vassals, who would have then provided military services back to him in times of up rise. Not only did serfs work the land given to the Nobles and Vassals, but they also had large taxes placed on them by the King. These unreasonable taxes, along with the lack of a set body of laws led to a slow decline in Feudalism. Overall, Feudalism was a one-time system that “… helped European civilization lift itself out of the Dark Ages” (pg.10). It lasted just long enough for the economy to level out, and for a new system of military services to be discovered....

Cooperative

...Credit cooperatives play a very vital role in the socio-economic life of Filipinos. They act as an important driver in the development of the country’s economic and social conditions. Cooperatives are more urgently needed in society among social groups with less income and resources than by those with sufficient resources. Thus, cooperatives have proved to be effective instruments for the advancement of the working classes and the less fortunate segments of the society. Financial cooperatives such as credit cooperatives help to alleviate poverty in the Philippines. By making reserve funds, these cooperatives help to lessen members’ burden in search for immediate cash assistance such as medical emergencies or unforeseen expenditures. They promote savings, thriftiness and future investments and expense like education plan. Financial cooperatives also provide the necessary funding to their members such as micro-financing loans to small and medium enterprises that later on will generate additional jobs and profits, and grant loans that will help farmers increase agricultural production. A credit cooperative also promotes significant involvement to the growth of its members and community whereas Filipinos had appreciated that the real essence of fulfillment can only be achieved by promoting common good of others, particularly to the less fortunate members of the cooperative. These people have also realized the meaning of collective effort and cooperation to uphold general......

Feudalism to Modernity: Japan's Transition

...Question: What steps did Japan take to reform its system of feudalism to a more modern form of government? The 18th through 19th century was truly an imperialistic era orchestrated by military superiority by the West. In the interest of avoiding battles they undoubtedly would have lost, East Asian nations signed lopsided treaties that benefited the West. Not only did the treaties open East Asian ports for trade, a demand the West insisted on, but in some cases they included land cessions to the West. The Japanese, having witnessed the demise of the once great Qing Dynasty, were determined to avoid the same destructive folly in their homeland. Japan embarked on a thorough introspection and restructuring that resulted in a modern form of government. Japan was in a new era and they would soon become East Asia’s greatest power. The Shogunate unintentionally sparked the beginning of the restoration period in Japan when he reversed the nation’s long standing sakoku—closed door policy. Many of the samurai and nobles thought the Shogun was showing weakness when he conceded to America’s demands and signed an unequal treaty favoring the West. The first step towards reform began when Japanese troops seized the Imperial Palace and convinced the young Emperor that the Shogun must be overthrown in order to usher in a new imperial era of leadership in Japan. This led to the Boshin War which was a civil war led by imperial forces to uproot the Shogun and his supporters. The Shogun......

Non-Cooperative

...A game theory consists of a model that can help us understand how managers, investors and other related parties deal with economic consequences of financial reporting. There are many different types of games, such as cooperative and non-cooperative. The model that will be discussed in this report is on non-cooperative. A game theory consists of an interaction between two or more players. Each player is assumed to maximize their expected utility (profit). Most of the time, this interaction occurs when there is uncertainty and information asymmetry. On top of that, the players must also take into account the actions of the other players when making a decision. The fourth slide illustrates an example of two players involved in a competition. Suppose that there is player A and player B. The actions of player A can be difficult to predict, since his action depends on what he thinks player B will take, and vice versa. Therefore, players’ decisions greatly depend on assumptions. A non-cooperative game has no form of negotiation and no binding contracts. This means that no agreement has been made on purpose. Furthermore, both parties do not exactly know the other party’s action will be. A good example of a non-cooperative model will be the “chicken” game. It is basically about two drivers who drive their cars very fast towards each other. Both drivers have to make their decisions to either drive straight or to swerve at last minute and the one who swerves first will be the......

Dual Realationships

...Dual Relationships and Boundaries Paper Survey of Professional Psychology 545 July 8, 2013 Dr. Terry Portis Dual Relationships and Boundaries Dual relationships are that of a relationship of some kind with a patient either the patient is a family member, friend, or known through business. Dual relationships are not that of a sexual manner as that does not constitute a dual relationship but more of crossing boundaries the same as accepting gifts or meeting outside the office (Zur, 1997- 2013). There are many forms of dual relationships but as long and the boundary in a sexual or more than doctor client relationship are not crossed (accepting gifts, hugging). In the scenario that was chosen the therapist/teacher is dealing with a dual relationship of his or her student confiding marital issues and at a later date asking for the professor to be him and his wife’s couple’s counselor. This is a situation in which the professional need to determine if this is a dual relationship, crossing boundaries, and meets ethical decision-making process. Definition of Dual Relationships Dual relationships are defined as professional and personal relationships that transpire involving a client and the therapist or psychologist (Pope & Keith-Spiegel, 2008).  Dual relationships in the field of psychology are any relationship where different roles are between a therapist and client. For instance dual relationship is the...

The End of Feudalism

...The Decline of Feudalism When Medieval Society began to emerge late in the 9th century, it was chaotic and uncertain times. The theme of security was once again gone and feudalism was predominant throughout Western society. It was based on the idea that each individual relied on each other, which lead to mutual obligations that were based on a mans word and a handshake. It was a semi-democratic society where the leaders relied on their kingdom for goods and services. The kings and knights even worked together in harmony. The effects of trade, the emergence of towns and the interjection of money into the economy truly revolutionized Western society economically, socially and politically. Many crusaders began to foster the economic relationships that would benefit themselves greatly. Merchants from Italy realized that there were profits to be made by taking their products northward. As they made their way north, they entered into a predominately rural society. They found that trade was hard to establish since this was a very rich agricultural society. The Italian merchants established temporary settlements called trade fairs. They tended to set up shop at a relatively accessible point, usually near a river. Another important deciding factor for location was security. They would want to set up the trade fair at a place that could be easily defended. Merchants could swap goods at these trade fairs using the barter system since there was still no monetary system...

Feudalism

... Feudalism Feudalism was the medieval model of government predating the birth of the modern nation-state. Feudal society is a military hierarchy in which a ruler or lord offers mounted fighters a fief(medieval beneficium), a unit of land to control in exchange for a military service. The individual who accepted this land became a vassal, and the man who granted the land become known as his liege or his lord. The deal was often sealed by swearing oaths on the Bible or on the relics of saints. Often this military service amounted to forty days' service each year in times of peace or indefinite service in times of war, but the actual terms of service and duties varied considerably on a case-by-case basis. Factors such as the quality of land, the skill of the fighter, local custom, and the financial status of the liege lord always played a part. For instance, in the late medieval period, this military service was often abandoned in preference for cash payment, or agreement to provide a certain number of men-at-arms or mounted knights for the lord's use.In the late medieval period, the fiefdom often became hereditary, and the son of a knight or lesser nobleman would inherit the land and the military duties from his father upon the father's death. Feudalism had two enormous effects on medieval society.(1) First, feudalism discouraged unified government. Individual lords would divide their lands into smaller and smaller sections to give to lesser rulers and knights. These lesser......

Cooperative Games

...HPES 1589 May 3, 2013 Cooperative Games Final Project Today, it is no secret that America is overweight. Although we still remain the land of the free, the rest of the world as “the fat country” looks us at. This is a label that we are not proud of and each day more and more people are becoming aware of the new epidemic called Obesity. Even though freedom of choice gives people the right to eat what they want, children and adults should not be overweight or obese because certain manufacturing supplies don’t accommodate obese people. From cars to cloths it’s sometimes hard to always find things to accommodate obese people. That’s a reason why people should work on making America healthier. Being obese also causes people emotional and physical stress. What is Obesity? Obesity is an excess proportion of total body fat. Obesity occurs when a person consumes more calories than he or she burns. Which sometimes mean people eat way too much and don’t ever exercise. More than two-thirds of the population is considered overweight or obese. With all this being said we agree that children pre school-twelfth grade can change their eating habits as well as physical activity by participating in physical education classes. Physical education at school is a big influence on students since most of the things they learn in life come from being in school. If we as teachers can make a difference in a kids life it starts at making sure they eat healthy and get enough physical......

Cooperative

...By Laws Unlike Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws do not need to filed with the state.  However, Bylaws are an important document that lays out how the cooperative is to be governed.  The governing body (whether it consists of an elected Board of Directors or all members of a collective[1]) must abide the Bylaws.  Typically, a cooperative’s Bylaws can only be changed by a democratic vote (or in some cases, consensus [2]) of the membership.  For this reason, cooperatives usually limit their Bylaws to fundamental governance-level issues.  More specific operational procedures may be documented in policy manuals or handbooks, which can be changed as needed by Directors, (co-)managers, committee members, staff, or other bodies using approved decision-making processes. Bylaws are organized into sections, and most sections are broken up into subsections.  In this document, only the lengthier sections are broken up into subsections for ease of reading.  However, shorter sections can benefit from being broken down as well.  Bylaws can be easily referenced when numbers or letters are assigned to sections and subsections.    ------------------------------------------------- Cooperative Bylaws should include:  I.    Mission, purpose, and legal structure   This section often includes the cooperative’s mission statement, vision statement, or stated purpose.[3]  This is also a good place to restate the information outlined in the Articles of Incorporation.  The Bylaws should......

Cooperative Learning

...Based on research, a general definition of cooperative learning refers to students working in teams on an assignment or projects under conditions in which certain criteria are satisfied, including that the team members be held individually accountable for the complete content of assignment or projects. However, different proponents have slightly different perception or view on Cooperative Learning. (Johnsons, et.al, 1991) mentioned that cooperative learning is the instructional use of small groups so that students work together to maximize their own and each other's learning. Then, Kagan (1994) stated that cooperative learning is a teaching arrangement that refers to small, heterogeneous groups of students working together to achieve a common goal. However, (Johnson, Johnson and Holubec, 1998) stated cooperative learning is a strategy that is used to maximize students achievement in schools; though, oftentimes it goes without being used to its fullest potential or is used in an unsuccessful. Woolfolk (2001) views cooperative learning as an arrangement in which students work in mixed ability groups and are rewarded on the basis of the success of the group. Another website resource studied that the term "cooperative learning" covers the subset of active learning activities which students do as groups of three or more, rather than alone or in pairs; generally, cooperative learning techniques employ more formally structured groups of students assigned complex tasks, ...

Feudalism

...Feudalism At the start of the middle ages, most of Europe’s many nations lacked any source of structure or government. Things were very chaotic, and when the king of France realized that his civilization was crumbling, he decided to do something about it. He started a system in which he rented out his kingdom’s land in return for money, labor, or military service. This system is known as feudalism. In many ways it was a very beneficial system, but it had its faults. Over the middle ages, feudalism spread all throughout Europe. And even though it eventually failed, feudalism grew into one of the most powerful and well known political systems in history. Feudalism originally grew out of the chaos amongst the empires within Europe between the 9th and 15th centuries. Cities and states were struggling with each other and feudalism was a cure to their problems. It was a way to gather and organize an army of men and keep them on hand to restore and keep order in the land. The feudal system consisted of vassals, someone who serves, arranged in a pyramid. At the base of the pyramid was the largest group, the peasants or serfs that provided food and services. Above them were the merchants and craftsmen that served the lords and knights. The knights and nobles served the barons, bishops, and other officials. At the peak of the pyramid sat the king, who ruled everyone. Although this “pyramid” may resemble the social and political structure of previous societies, such as......

Dual Nationality

...Dual Nationality When I am asked the question of where I come from, I have trouble defining my country and explaining who I am. I feel like I am stuck between two countries across the globe, and two different cultures because I was raised outside of my birthplace. Therefore I seem to have trouble determining what is my true home. Yet the country that I was raised in cannot be my true home either because there I am considered an expatriate. So, am I supposed to be Indian American? But aren’t they the Native Americans? This is why I have learned to simply answer this question with “Dual Nationality.” Experiences are events that in my opinion are what shapes a person and make the person that one is. I am a compilation of my experiences and with each new experience that I have gained; I became a different and a new mature person at every stage. The experiences that I have gone through are like the stairs of my life. The end of the stairs is when I will be successful with my goals and ambitions. All of the places that I have been to and all of the places that I have lived in are a part of my life, a memory that helps me to become who I am today. Born in India, I came to the United States of America at the young age of two. The only English word that I knew was “chocolate.” Even though my parents were well educated but they never though of talking to me in English because they wanted to preserve my first language of Punjabi. My experiences started at the age of 4 when I had to...

Dual Diagnosis

...Dual Diagnosis Jana Hall Liberty University Abstract There is so much yet to be learned by researchers in regards to understanding the intertwining connections between mental illness and substance use disorders. This essay is barely scratching the surface in describing the complexity of the two. In order to know how to treat an individual who exhibits symptoms of both a substance use disorder and a mental illness, it must first be determined which came first, the mental illness that lead to the substance use disorder or the SUD which exacerbated the underlying mental illness. I’m sure you have heard the saying, ‘Which came first, the chicken or the egg?’ Well, this seems to be the dilemma for the experts in their respective fields of study in determining the most effective form of treatment for those who have been given a dual diagnosis. Unfortunately, individuals who have this diagnosis have become the norm in today’s day, rather than the exception. Dual Diagnosis It was widely believed at one time that substance use disorders and mental illness were seldom found in an individual. Since that time, it has been discovered, through epidemiological studies done on individuals who struggle with both mental illness and substance use disorder, that this is not true. A majority of those diagnosed with a mental illness also concurrently have a substance use disorder (Doweiko, 2015). ). Some of the mental illnesses that are challenging mental health professionals......
