More Domestic Terrorist Than the Public Realizes With only a few mentioned in part one of this two part essay, there are actually many more domestic terrorist groups that are coming to light. Domestic terrorism has been around for many years and probably for many more. There are going to be groups or even individuals that will have their own beliefs and may even try to push those beliefs onto others. So because of this domestic terrorism is going to be around for a long time. Looking through history I have found a few domestic groups that weren’t mentioned in part ones essay but I feel should be addressed. Ku Klux Klan can never be ignored as one of the most prominent of all domestic terrorist groups in the United States. Another one is Phineas Priesthood, and lastly a group Americans must focus on is Black Liberation Army. These are the three that I think should really be focused on, for they seem to be mentioned by the F.B.I. in a lot of Domestic Terrorism articles. Ku Klux Klan (KKK), just the name sounds of something bad is about to happen. The Klan has been causing havoc since 1865. Is definitely one of the oldest and most infamous for violence than any other domestic group on American. Most believe that blacks are the main subject of the Klan, but that isn’t necessary true anymore. They tend to focus on attacking Jews, immigrants, gays, and lesbians. Immigrants is their main issue now (Klu klux klan, 2013). The Klan is considered a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Deamination League. The first Klu Klux Klan was established in the Southern States and many members would weir robes , mask, and conical hats. Hats shaped like cones. Most Klans are recognized by burning crosses and associated with opposing against…...

...is a review of the book entitled Terrorist Attacks: The Oklahoma City Bombing by Geraldine Giordano. The author’s purpose is to inform the reader about the life of Timothy McVeigh, convicted bomber, the destructive plan, the actual bombing, the investigation of the case, and the aftermath. Giordano hooks the reader by implementing a very dramatic introduction of the events of that morning. “It was a day no one would soon forget” (Giordano 5). The first chapter is devoted to the life of Timothy McVeigh, his biographical information, and additional facts of interest to the reader, such as McVeigh and a friend bought 10 acres of land in New York and told their parents that they wanted to use the land for hunting. In reality, they planned to use the land as a survivalists’ bunker. It was surprising to learn that McVeigh wanted to be a Green Beret but failed the required psychiatric test. Chapter two is devoted to the alliance between McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and Michael Fortier. The author suggests that the Ruby Ridge incident and the Waco incident concerning the Branch Davidians were turning points for McVeigh. The author argues that the Murrah Building was targeted for several reasons. The first reason being that McVeigh knew the building contained several government offices and agencies. According to her, McVeigh believed that he could retaliate against those who were responsible for the Waco incident. Another reason was the way the building was constructed and its shape.......

The Art of Retaining Your Best People by Timothy Butler and James Waldroop

...Job Sculpting The Art of retaining your best people by Timothy Butler and James Waldroop Summary Hiring good people is tough, but as every senior executive knows, keeping them can be even tougher. Indeed, most executives can tell a story or two about a talented professional who joined their company to great fanfare, added enormous value for a couple of years, and then departed unexpectedly. Usually such exits are written off. “She got an offer she couldn’t refuse,” you hear, or, “No one stays with one company for very long these days.” Hiring good people is tough, but keeping them can be even tougher. The professionals streaming out of today's MBA programs are so well educated and achievement oriented that they could do well in virtually any job. But will they stay? According to noted career experts Timothy Butler and James Waldroop, only if their jobs fit their deeply embedded life interests--that is, their long-held, emotionally driven passions. Butler and Waldroop identify the eight different life interests of people drawn to business careers and introduce the concept of job sculpting, the art of matching people to jobs that resonate with the activities that make them truly happy. Managers don't need special training to job sculpt, but they do need to listen more carefully when employees describe what they like and dislike about their jobs. Once managers and employees have discussed deeply embedded life interests--ideally, during employee performance reviews--they can......

Timothy Geithner on Populism, Paul Ryan, and His Legacy

...Timothy Geithner on Populism, Paul Ryan, and His Legacy BY LIAQUAT AHAMED Timothy Geithner took over as Treasury Secretary in the middle of the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. In four years, he helped design the largest government stimulus package in history, and contended with a weak recovery, millions of Americans losing their homes, obstinately high unemployment and complicated budget negotiations. To his fans, he is the figure most responsible for stabilizing the banking system and preventing a catastrophic economic collapse. To his critics, he was excessively generous to bankers and failed to change a system where some banks remained “too big to fail.” In a wide-ranging interview during his last days at Treasury, he kept returning to what has become one of his signature themes—the importance of putting “policy ahead of politics.” All too often, in his view, the best economic policies have enormous up-front political costs. We began by talking about the financial crisis of 2008. MARCH 8, 2013 NATE COHN OTHER STORIES FROM LA: Your predecessor Hank Paulson in his book describes how at the height of the crisis he would have sleepless nights, worrying that a giant financial collapse was going to occur on his watch and that he would go down in history as the Herbert Hoover of the current era. Your colleagues all say you are remarkably calm, even in the middle of a crisis. TG: Well I was very worried throughout that period of time. Starting in......

Serial Killers

...Serial Killers: Inside the Twisted Minds Angel M. Fiore Survey of Criminal Justice Remington College Abstract “Murder” the unlawful taking of ones life. In the next few pages we will explore three main types of murders. We will touch bases on “Spree Killers” such as the 1920's bank robbers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrows. Then we will move on down to the 1995 Oklahoma City Bomber “Mass Murder” Timothy McVeigh. Finally we will go in depth into the minds and life of my favorite of the three types, the “Serial Killers” Aileen Wuornos and Jeffery Dahmer. What motivated those five individuals to participate in their crimes against humanity. Did they have no choice and it was genetics from the time they were conceived? Could it have been a learned behavior from the society and the time around them. Or could it have just simply been that they were completely mad. Before we are done we will see the similar and differences of all five of these individuals and their types of murder. We can say one thing thou, they all have one common bond with each other and their victims. Whether they died from a gun squad of police, the state lethal injection, or by the hands of another inmate like their unwilling victims they all ended up on a mortician's cold dead slab. Murder is defined as “ the unlawful killing of a human being.” We can break down murder into many different categories. Some of those can be broke down as spree killing, mass murder, and serial killers. Let’s......

In every accounting class, they will reiterate the conceptual framework of accounting by briefly discuss about the Income Statement, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement. Each accounting class they will go in depth of those conceptual frameworks, but in the perspective from the side of Assets or Liability or Stockholder’s equity. Majority of the course was spent on the asset side, topics such as Cash, Receivables, and Inventory Valuations, also with additional issues, were discussed. When choosing a restaurant for a topic, the first thing that comes to mind is inventory. How can a restaurant operate without taking into account inventory? Buffalo Wild Wing is a very unique restaurant that operates on providing wings and sports bar ambiance. In order to understand how they control inventory, there needs to be a specific identification. Specific Identification calls for identifying each item sold and each item in inventory; is used by companies that focus on selling inventories that will not be substantial and can be counted physically without incurring heavy costs for tracking individual inventory items. This is a good idea for Buffalo Wild Wings because they can keep track of the food inventory, but the disadvantages to this method involve income manipulation on similar or......

Timothy Wilson

...Timothy Wilson‘s book Strangers to Ourselves is a fascinating journey to our adaptive unconscious, which he defines as the “mental processes that are inaccessible to consciousness but that influence judgments, feelings, or behavior” and have adapted through evolution (23). Wilson contents that we cannot observe these processes because they are simply inaccessible to us: “a lot of the interesting stuff about the human mind – judgments, feelings, motives – occur outside of awareness for reasons of efficiency, and not because of repression” (8). He argues that this is similar to other processes, such as perceptual processes or even digestion, which we know are happening but are not observable through introspection. In contrast to Freud, modern psychological research suggests that the unconscious cannot be explored no matter how deep you dig. This is not a bad thing, Wilson points out, but it is a reflection of the mind’s power: a lot of information can be processed very quickly and efficiently (although not always accurately) (16). Our minds are parallel processors because we process quite a bit of information unconsciously. Instead of looking inward, Wilson suggests a much more powerful way to self-understanding: observing our behavior (16). In addition to not being able to understand ourselves well through “navel gazing,” we might even be driven by goals from our adaptive unconscious that we are not completely aware of (34). Wilson summarizes: “We know less than we think we do...

...ACCOUNTING INFORMATION SYSTEM INTRODUCTION Our project is based on a casual dining business, located in Fairfield, New Jersey. It is a restaurant business, which contains a variety of food and a bar with a variety of drinks, as well. This business has 76 employees; 30 servers, 25 kitchen staff, 8 hosts, 7 bartenders, and 6 managers. The restaurant has received good reviews from customers regarding the quality of the food and the atmosphere, as well. It is located on a busy highway on Route 46 and is located between two universities of Montclair State and William Paterson. It is a popular location for college students, where they watch football games and other sporting events. Customers mostly order food to be served to them, however, some order for take-out. The restaurant’s profits seem consistent each month. The busiest times for the restaurant are on weekends, lunch, dinner, and during football games on weekdays, where most revenue comes from the bar. Due to the lack of technology, the restaurant has experienced several problems. For example, they do not run on a computerized seating or ordering system, like most restaurants do today. Instead, it is all done manually and written down on paper, so it is very inaccurate at times. With this outdated system, it is difficult to know which tables are open. Therefore, when customers are waiting to be seated and see tables are available and are still not seated, they walk out, causing the restaurant to lose business. Also...

...intimidating or coercing societies or government, often for ideological or political reasons, (Barnett, Reynolds). From researching and studying terrorism and the media this paper will include; the background on Timothy McVeigh, Oklahoma City Bombing, how it was reported, how it is different from now and the speculations of how the media helped or harmed the situation. Timothy McVeigh grew up living a ‘normal life’, with loving parents and childhood friends but he felt unloved. In third grade he witnessed a neighbor boy drown a bag of kittens in a nearby pond he was so disgusted that day forward he could not bear the sight of death to the point he stopped shooting bull frogs with his bb gun. That all changed when he joined the United States Army and was deployed to the Gulf War. In basic and deployment training his mind set was changed to killing was an act of war, he even declared the attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building an act of war, (Michel, Herbeck).It was just a mission and solider are used to carrying out missions that brought pain to others, (Michel, Hebeck). In a way Timothy was trying to be America’s freedom fighter, “one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter,” (Barnett, Reynolds). Psychological is one of the motives for political violence, Timothy displayed this in his attack in Oklahoma City, he had justified his actions to himself but no one understood or saw his point of view. He was trying to get the government’s attention, his......

Prison Comparison

...Federal Prison Comparison “If you do the crime, you must do the time,” this statement has been heard in terms of a person being convicted for breaking a law. One is well aware of the law, but when continuing to break it, then they must face the fact that they will be brought to justice. In this paper, there are eight people of focus, such as: Martha Stewart, Ivan Boesky, Michael Milken, Manuel Noriega, Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, Al Capone, and John Gotti. Although there crimes vary we will look at the similarities and difference. Martha Stewart In 2004, Mrs. Stewart was sentenced to five months of federal prison for lying to investigators about a stock sale. She was sent to Alderson Federal prison camp to serve a portion of her sentence. The Prison she was sent to was founded in 1927. It was the first women prison in the United States. It was established for the basic purpose of rehabilitating women criminals. It is a minimum-security prison in 159-acre facility. It has the capacity to hold 1050 prisoners, which has no barbed wire on the fences surrounding the camp and the prisoners have schedules and each one must work. Most who are sentenced here have committed white-collared crimes and non-violent crimes. The inmates there sleep in bunk beds in two large dormitories. These quarters hold 500 plus inmates. It also “Follows a punitive rather than a rehabilitative model.” Ivan Boesky Ivan Boesky was an American stock trader that was found to be involved in a scandal...

Ii Timothy 3

...Timothy was a younger colleague of Paul whom the Apostle Paul probably met on his first missionary journey in Acts. Paul’s frequent reference to him as his son may indicate that he was a Pauline convert, but the evidence is not clear. It is believed that Paul may have used the expression “son” to refer to Timothy as his “son in the ministry”. Timothy was the recipient of the letter in second Timothy from Paul and when Paul refers to him as his “dear son” it is an expression of affection. Historical A. Date According to Frank Gaebelein in The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, “It is obvious that the second Epistle to Timothy was written no later than A.D.67. He also states that it may have been as early as 65 and if we assume omitted details in the book of Acts account, earlier dates might be possible. B. Location/Setting Frank Gaebelein says, Second Timothy was written from prison in Rome, shortly before the Apostle Paul’s death. He goes on to state that Timothy was in Ephesus when Paul wrote to him. It is often alleged that the church structure in the Pastoral Epistles reflects the church in the early second century instead of the first. C. Authorship The authenticity of Paul’s correspondence with Timothy and Titus went unchallenged until the nineteenth century. According to Philip Towner, the greeting first identifies the writer and then redefines the identification of Paul. Thomas Lea states that many contemporary interpreters feel that the name “Paul” in......

Timothy Leary

...PLAYBOY: How will this psychedelic regime enrich human life? LEARY: It will enable each person to realize that he is not a game-playing robot put on this planet to be given a Social Security number and to be spun on the assembly line of school, college, career, insurance, funeral, goodbye…Man is going to have to explore the infinity of inner space, to discover the terror and adventure that lie within us all. This quote by Timothy Leary is very interesting. Leary clearly believes that LSD will help people have a better understanding about life in general. Timothy Leary obviously was a firm believer that Psychedelics can be used for good. He was a writer known for advocating research into psychedelic drugs. I would agree with his positions regarding this question in the interview. Dr. Albert Hofmann was a research chemist at Sandoz Labs in Basle, Switzerland. In April of 1943, the chemist accidentally ingested a small amount of a compound he had synthesized five years earlier from a rye fungus ergot. 'I experienced fantastic images of an extraordinary plasticity. They were associated with an intense kaleidoscopic play of colors. After two hours, this condition disappeared,' Dr. Hofmann later stated. His extraordinary discovery was labeled d-lysergic acid diethyl-amide tartrate or LSD-25. A psychedelic experience is a journey to new realms of consciousness. The scope and content of the experience is unbounded. In the 1950s, investigators from various scientific......

Federal Prison

...Federal prison comparison Christopher Gault CJA/234 December 19, 2011 Rollin Cook Federal prison comparison In this paper describe the prisons that certain individuals were sent to. I will make sure I compare and contrast the similarities and differences between these individuals. The individuals I will be discussing are Martha Stewart, Ivan Boesky, Michael Milken, Manuel Noriega, Timothy McVeigh, and Terry Nichols. All of these individuals were convicted of Federal crimes and sent to a Federal prison to serve their time. Martha Stewart was assigned to the minimum security women's prison in Alderson, W. Va., known as "Camp Cupcake." It is called that because it is a very low security prison and your time spent there should be easy. The West Virginia federal correctional facility is located in the hills of the Allegheny Mountains; this prison is more than 400 miles south of Stewart's Westport home. Martha Stewart wanted to go to a prison closer to her home so she could be close to her elderly mother. The low security facility was opened in 1927 as the first federal prison for women, Martha wasn’t the first big name to spend time at the facility. The prison once housed Billie Holiday, as well as Lynette Fromme and Sara Jane Moore. Both of these women tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford. The prison has no perimeter fence, and inmates can spend their free time playing volleyball and tennis or even doing aerobics. So that explains why they call it “Camp Cupcake”...

Exegetical Paper on 1 Timothy 2

...Exegetical Paper on 1 Timothy 2.9-15 1 Timothy 2:9-15 9 likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10 but with what is proper for women who profess godliness— with good works. 11Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15Yet she will be saved through childbearing— if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control. First Timothy 2:9-15 is from the pastoral epistle 1 Timothy in which Paul gives corrective instruction to Timothy regarding the structure of the worship service for the church in Ephesus. This passage is frequently discussed with regards to church structure and is particularly raised in opposition to women holding the office of pastor or elder. It is a key passage in the debate between complementarianism, which argues that men and women are of equal intrinsic worth before God but should have complementary roles in the church and in society, and egalitarianism, which argues for no institutional distinctions between men and women.......
