Dimi Lu Video 1: What Would You Do? Muslim Woman at Roadside Bakery I can see two main opposing attitudes on display in this video. These attitudes center around what it means to be an American. The first attitude (Attitude #1) is that America is a
Christian nation with Christian “values”. It is the nation of John Wayne, muscle cars, apple pie, the second amendment, and baseball, just to name a few things. There is a premium placed on individual liberty, a disdain for “big government”, and a wariness of immigrants ­ especially those coming from Central America or the middle east. A business owner has the right to serve anyone he or she sees fit, or refuse service to anyone he or she sees as unfit. It’s basically the belief held by supporters of the Tea Party which holds right wing, conservative, evangelical
Christian views about what kind of country America is and who can be considered a
God­fearing, patriotic, American. There are many on this side of the camp who are flat out racists and hide behind this Tea Party label to push their own hateful agenda. On the other hand, for many on this side the line between hateful racist thinking and their protectionist patriotic stance is not so clear cut. Some see the the profiling of immigrants, minorities, and certain religious groups, and the denial of their rights as a necessary evil that must be perpetuated in order to keep our country safe. I think that those who openly sided with the actor playing the discriminating restaurant clerk hold Attitude #1, although the actor has played the part so that his character has clearly crossed the line between discrimination into plain racism.
The second attitude (Attitude #2) is that America is a land of opportunity. It is a melting pot where people from all walks of life can come to try to make a better life for themselves. It is a land of religious freedom…...

What should she have Considered before moving into the larger facility? Initially, the business operated at a loss, but with time the business was able to attract new and loyal customers. This growth in itself was a challenge because Elizabeth over-estimated the growth capacity of her business. This in turn cost her heavily since she ended paying for unused space in the new facility.

Muslim Women

...DIANA ZUNIGA APRIL 14TH 2009 PRINCIPLES OF ETHICS RESEARCH PAPER MR. PHLEPS In the Muslim religion women are often covering up to show modesty. But it is not a requirement some Muslims reveal. Here is a passage from the Quran: "Say to the believing man that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make for greater purity for them; and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do. And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; and that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what must ordinarily appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands' fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments ..." (Qur'an 24:30-31) Many Muslims argue that it is mandatory that all women cover up. But others disagree. Many claim that it is a choice and that they have the freedom to choose to cover up or not. The incident earlier this week has this issue in question. A woman in Orland Park was arrested for gruesome charges. She beat her 2 year old niece over the course of 4 days. Resulting......

Make Me a Muslim Documentary

...There were several compelling parts of the film Make Me a Muslim: Young British Women Converting to Islam. I found it interesting that each of the woman who converted to Islamic faith in hopes of living a better life away from their troubled past. Claire (known as Sophia in the her Muslim faith) found the Islamic faith to be conservative. Being conservative appealed to Claire because this kept her from drinking and misbehaving. Partying was not appealing to Claire although if she did any of that in her past once she converted her sins would be washed away. Alana had converted 2 years ago has a past life style of drinking and partying as well as Lisa who was a feisty young fighter before she converted to Islam. We got to meet Shannon a Pakistan model that grew up in the Muslim faith and is now enjoying a quite liberal lifestyle. It became interesting to see Shannon interview these three converted women and observe their practices. As she took a deep look at each of these converts Shannon began to question them on why they choose to convert to Islam. After taking interest in their lifestyles Shannon began feeling guilty as she began to question her own faith as she listen to the other women’s stories and watch their dedication to the Islamic faith. It was interesting to see how dedicated each woman was in their faith, as Sophia prays 5 times a day and wears a hijab she is accepted by the Muslim women in the temple.

Sundown Bakery

...Sundown Bakery When Carol Teinchek and Bruce Marshall first started Sundown Bakery, the business was fairly simple. Carol ran the shop up front, while Bruce ran the bakery and ordered supplies. When the business began to grow, Carol hired two part-time clerks to help out in the shop. Marina had moved to the country 2 years ago from El Salvador, and Kim was a newly arrived Korean who was working his way through college. Bruce hired Maurice, a French Canadian, as an assistant. The ovens were soon running 24 hours a day, supervised by Maurice, who was now master baker, and two assistants on each of three shifts. Marina and Kim supervised the shop, since Carol was usually too busy managing general sales distribution to spend much time with customers. Bruce still spent 3 or 4 hours a day in the bakery whenever he could get out of his office, but he spent most of that time coordinating production and solving problems with Maurice. Within the next year, Sundown expanded from its original location, adding two new shops as well as two kiosks in local malls. Carol and Bruce hired a new operations manager, Hans Mikelson, who had formerly been regional manager of a national chain of coffee shops. Mikelson had plenty of new ideas about how to operate an expanding business: He had a Web site created, added an extensive range of drinks and meal items to the menu, and instituted two dress codes—one for all counter help and another for kitchen employees. He also...

Arabs and Muslims

...the same. They only one that I can see that was different between the both of our answers was that she had more in the both category than I did. I only put family oriented, woman as homemakers, devout, law abiding, fanatically religious, and religion part of government. My participant put for both well educated, undereducated, conservative political values, strict moral values. There are descriptive words used in both of the categories, the ones used in the Christian American there were good neighbors, moral values, peaceable, socially compliant and socially inclusive. In the Arab and Muslims the descriptive words are violent, strict moral values, socially oppressed, patriarchal society. The two descriptors that I think are true about the Christian Americans are that the political environment is open to both sexes and secular content in education and the two that I think are not true are that well educated and not oppressive woman. The reason I say that they are not true is because Christian Americans because all Christian Americans are not well educated there are some that are educated and some that are not. All Christians are not oppressive to woman some of them ridicule and abuse their woman. The Arabs and Muslims are more dominating than other countries when it comes to the woman in their life, the woman has no say so and everything that the man say goes. They are not allowed to have their own opinion; they are to do as they are told. I think the average Americans......
