To the dismay of many people, human trafficking is a huge problem in America. Most people would like you to believe that things like that dont happen here, that is something that happens in other countries, poorer countries, not the U.S. of A. It has become such an epidemic here, that it can no longer be ignored. Though it is currently difficult to know the exact number of people that are victim to human trafficking due to it being a hidden crime, the US is currently ranked in the top 10 destinations for human trafficking. (Hepburn, Simon 2010) I would like to define human trafficking, as it is understood by Homeland Security so when it is mentioned it will be comprehended the same way throughout, Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. (dhs.gov) Though history would like for you to believe that slavery was abolished in 1838 after the American Civil War and the Emancipation P roclamation that was signed by Abraham Lincoln. Unfortunately, none of that is true. There is more human slavery in the world today, than ever before. It is considered a low risk, high reward enterprise since it is hard to prove and convict compared to the amount of money that is made from it. One major difference between then and now would be that back then, human slaves were property and worth a monetary value. Whereas now there is no monetary value to the person, only what they can do to make the trafficker money. Once the slave becomes of no use, whether it is from health issues or an undesirable age, they are no longer making money, so they are easily replaced. Human trafficking is thought to be the third largest criminal activity following closely behind gun and drug trafficking. (Logan, Walker, Hunt 2009) It reportedly generates a profit of $32 billion every year, (dosomething.org) Though it seems that sex trafficking gets more attention in the media due to it bei ng more overdramatized; labor trafficking is more common and harder to prove in a court of law. One huge misconception about human trafficking is that a person has to be transported from one country to another to be considered trafficking, however, it can take place all in one country. There is an estimated 100,000-150,000 people that the US government believes to be kept in slavery here in America. (arkofhopeforchildren.org) Common factors that lead people to become victims is often extreme poverty, they may be born in to, they may be runaways living on the streets making them easy targets for kidnapping, or they may be tricked. When someone has grown up in poverty and they are offered an opportunity to either make a better life for themselves or their children, it makes them susceptible to any promises made of a better life. Often parents in poverty are persuaded with hope. Hope of a better life, better education, or even a better life here in America, they will send their child away with these strangers or companies, thinking they are doing their best for their children. Not fully understanding that once that child has been separated from his or her family, communication ties will be severed, and the child will be stuck with their captors. It has been documented that families have sold their younger children because they could not afford to raise them and they would use the money made to finish raising the older child, or children, that were of working age. Some victims have fallen prey to the darkness that is in the internet, people answering personal ads, and claiming to fall in love with that person over time. Once that person has the victim believing that love is the driving force, the victim will do anything to keep that love, even if it means sleeping with Johns for money. Runaways are easy prey for human traffickers due to their vulnerability. The traffickers watch, evaluate patterns of runaways living on the streets, then the traf ficker will have a better idea of what could be the selling point to get that victim to go with them, it could be food, shelter, or promises of an endless supply of drugs. It is currently estimated that over 2,000 children a day go missing in America, that is approximately 750,000 per year. Of those numbers, only 24 percent are taken by strangers, otherwise known as stranger kidnapping, which gives you approximately 175,000 that go missing or possibly taken for human trafficking per year. (arkofhopeforchildren.org). That is just children, that doesnt include women and men that are also taken for slavery. Many of the victims believe that they are taking legitimate jobs like childcare, construction, or landscaping just to name a few. They may even come to America on work Visas, but once they get here, their Visas, passports, or identifying documentation gets confiscated. They are then lead to believe that if they work hard, make enough money for their captors, they can get thei r documents back. Some human trafficking may appear as a legitimate business of helping people find employment or relocation for employment. Contracts are made up by the company and signed by the victim, not fully aware of what they may have just got themselves into, but since a contract was signed, they fear it cannot be undone. Once victims have themselves in a human trafficking situation they may be afraid to leave. Captors often use threats of harming family members, deportation if they are in America illegally, being put in jail. Some victims may have the lack of knowledge about alternatives, they may be kept in isolation, they suffer physical abuse, or psychological confinement. Unfortunately, in some countries it is believed that some governments or law enforcement agencies are involved or have knowledge of ongoing human trafficking events and are paid nicely to look the other way. So, if someone is here illegally, they may have several fears that prevent them from s eeking help from the law enforcement. They could be afraid of deportation, fear of not being believed, or fear that if they ask law enforcement for help, they will be turned back over to their captors and punished severely. Also, if they are involved in illegally activities here in America, they may fear being punished for collateral misconduct. Other victims may not leave the situation that they are in because they have no money, no family, nowhere else to go, which may seem worse than the situation that they are in currently. Traffickers often use shame to control their victims. So even if the victim were to get free, they have so much self-shame, they believe their families will disown them or potentially not love them anymore because of what they have done, even though the things they have done were against their will. Sometimes victims may not even realize they are victims of human trafficking and continue living the life they have grown accustom to. Its hard to belie ve that this crime goes unnoticed more than any other crime, since no many people are involved. What makes this crime different though is that it is hard to identify. Especially if law enforcement isnt trained on what to look for, because they themselves dont believe it could be happening in their community. People that may be here illegally may fear there will be a prejudice held against them because they arent American. They may believe they do not have rights here because they are not American. Victims that are found during law enforcement raids are often deported or arrested without a thorough evaluation about whether or no they are trafficking victims. Not only does this fail to protect and assist potential victims of trafficking but also the deportation of critical witnesses (i.e., trafficking victims) significantly weakens the case against their traffickers. (Hepburn Simon, 2010) Without educating our communities, our children, local law enforcement, along with the l egality system this crime will not go away. It will not go away even if we turn a blind eye, or pretend it doesnt happen in our country. We must start educating people and talking about the dangers that lurk in the world. If something seems too good to be true, it most likely is too good. Children need to be taught to trust their instincts, maybe even learn to fear strangers, like it was taught to me, stranger danger. No one is truly safe from becoming a victim of human trafficking. Especially if they threaten the lives or wellbeing of families, most people will do anything to protect their families. Society has to stop being afraid of law enforcement. They were always known as the good guys and now somehow all of that has changed over time. The government needs to set a standard so that law enforcement agencies dont have a lack of knowledge about identifying crime of human trafficking, most agencies dont have specific policies, procedures, and training addressing human tr afficking. (Wilson, Walsh, Kleuber, 2006) Those agencies that do have it dont have a standardization, which could also complicate taking these cases to trail. If there was more of a black and white standard, then maybe there could be a higher conviction rating.

This paper compares and contrasts two different literary works, Ã¢â¬Å"Country LoversÃ¢â¬ written by Nadine Gordimer and Ã¢â¬Å"The Welcome TableÃ¢â¬ by Alice Walker. Both stories follow the same theme, or hidden message or underlying idea in a story. They are about ethnicity and racism which ultimately results in the death of a person: the infant daughter in Ã¢â¬Å"Country LoversÃ¢â¬ and the old lady in Ã¢â¬Å"The Welcome Table.Ã¢â¬ Racism has transcended generations, separated families and nations, and left heartache and grief in its wake. Synopsis of Both Stories The first story, Ã¢â¬Å"Country LoversÃ¢â¬ is about Paulus, the spoiled, rich son of a white farmer and Thebedi, the daughter of a poor black worker. The story tells how Paulus and Thebedi grew up together on aÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦The preacher who she apparently has had a Ã¢â¬Å"familialÃ¢â¬ relationship with throughout many years lovingly refers to her as Ã¢â¬Å"AuntieÃ¢â¬ and tells her that she does not belong here and this is not her church. The usher, too, similarly called her Ã¢â¬Å"GrandmaÃ¢â¬ . In Ã¢â¬Å"Country LoversÃ¢â¬ the poor black laborers worked for the rich white people in harsh conditions. Conditional and Unconditional Love As mentioned, both stories tell of tough racial and discrimination issues that plagued the times they were written, although any separation of color was illegal. During those days, love was very much conditional, not unconditional (Bauer, 1992). Both stories are filled with the symbolism of love and hatred, life and death, good and evil. Despite the obvious love and affection in both stories for Thebedi and the old lady, the white men are still racist. For Paulus and Thebedi, there is obviously a childhood attraction between the two although they kept it secret because interracial relationships in this era were illegal. Even though they know it is wrong to love each other, they still do. Their childhood love and attraction they felt for each other resulted in them growing up to be more than friends. The crime is represented in the birth of their daughter; therefore, Paulus must make her go away. Being the racist that PaulusÃ¢â¬â¢s father has raised him to be and his need to cover up their crime, Paulus makes the decision to murder his own child.Show MoreRelatedWriting and Compare-and-contrast Essays1384 Words Ã |Ã 5 PagesÃ¯ » ¿Compare and Contrast This type of writing assignment is common.

Harper LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s To Kill a Mockingbird is a critically acclaimed, Pulitzer Prize winning novel that instantly attained its position as one of the greatest literary classics (Editors).The story of Scout FinchÃ¢â¬â¢s childhood has become one of the most notable narratives that addresses controversial issues present in the early 20th century. LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s novel depicts themes of race, justice, and innocence throughout the novel. Although To Kill a Mockingbird is regarded as a literary masterpiece in American literature, it was banned and challenged for racism, profanity, and mentions of incest and rape. To Kill a Mockingbird is often said to be a loosely based story of Harper LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s life portrayed through the thinly disguised protagonist, Scout Finch. The setting and characters in To Kill a Mockingbird share numerous similarities with Harper LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s childhood. Like Scout Finch, Harper Lee grew up as a tomboy in a small town in Alabama. LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s father was a lawyer and a member of the Alabama state legislature and is said to be the inspiration of Atticus Finch (Editors). Because Lee grew up in a southern state where racial discrimination was common and she wrote the novel near the pinnacle of the Civil Rights Movement, it is plausible to believe that the issues in To Kill a Mockingbird were shaped by events in the 1950s as well as in the 1930s, the time chosen for the novel s setting (Johnson).During the 1950s, the court system was tested with many controversial cases that dealt withShow MoreRelatedAnalysis Of Harper Lee s Kill A Mockingbird 1593 Words Ã |Ã 7 PagesAnalysis of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee Major Themes Ã¢â¬ ¢ Standards of behavior Ã¢â¬ ¢ Morals/values Ã¢â¬ ¢ Racism Important Symbols Ã¢â¬ ¢ Mockingbirds (Innocence/ morals and values)Ã¢â¬â The book depicts mockingbirds as innocent creatures that shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be harmed since they did nothing to harm others.

While job hopping has a negative connotation; this is more about a resource providing value to a company, and then realizing there is nothing more to learn in that environment. Until recently, job hopping was considered career suicide. The experts weighed in on the pros and cons of job hopping. Job hopping is more common with employees that are less tenured, and feel confident in their skills to be able to move on without burning a bridge and can add value immediately in a new opportunity. As job longevity becomes a thing of the past, employers and recruiters are beginning to have a different outlook on job hopping. In order to keep their skills fresh, it is necessary for technologists to remain current in a highly competitive market. The Guide for the Recent Grad, agrees. This can be more common for those specializing in development, mobile and Project Management. aÃ¢â ¬? It is usually considered job hopping when you move from one company to the next every one to two years, have done it multiple times, and the reason for each move is due to something other than a layoff or company closing. We will write a custom essay sample on Job Hopping or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page aÃ¢â ¬? Frank Dadah, a principal account manager and general manager at WinterWyman,AÃ a recruitment firm thatAÃ specializes in search and contract staffing in the Technology, Accounting and Finance, Human Resources, and Investments and Financial Services industries, says job hopping is moving from one company to the next for either a lateral move or promotion. Exposure to different jobs. AÃ Job hopping gives an employee the opportunity to see what other job are out there, Kahn says. An opportunity to show off some of your best attributes. AÃ Job hopping allows you to show employers that you are flexible, adaptable and a quick learner,aÃ¢â ¬? s well as someone who is not afraid of change or taking risks,aÃ¢â ¬? Cashman says. Diverse background. AÃ aÃ¢â ¬? [Job hoppers] probably can point to experience in a number of different industries and different size companies, and exposure to a variety of challenges,aÃ¢â ¬? saysAÃ Tracy Cashman, a partner and general manager in the IT Search division at WinterWyman. You may damage relationships. AÃ More and more, employers are turning to professional reference checkers to verify information and otherwise double-check their potential investment in a new employee, Parnell says. YouaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢re job may be less secure. AÃ If your employer is forced to lay off employees, you might be the first to go (given your track record of leaving companies quickly), Cashman says. Different employers provide access to different networks in which to plant roots and farm relationships; one day these may prove helpful or even career-saving. aÃ¢â ¬? aÃ¢â ¬? Where most products and services have a relatively long life-cycle, a job hopper will never experience such a satisfaction. aÃ¢â ¬? More money. AÃ aÃ¢â ¬? More often than not, an employer and their employee have a conflict of interests: the employer wants a lot of work for little pay, and the employee wants little work for a lot of pay,aÃ¢â ¬? Parnell explains. aÃ¢â ¬? In an environment where relationships are more important than ever, gaining experience by job hopping seriously compromises oneaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢s potential for developing deeper, more reliable contacts that can act as guarantors. aÃ¢â ¬? Employers will be hesitant to invest in you. aÃ¢â ¬? When jumping from job to job you are showing future employers that there is a high likelihood that you will do the same to them,aÃ¢â ¬? Kahn says. Exposure to different businesses and people. aÃ¢â ¬? Job hopping gives employees the opportunity to expand their experiences and shop around their talents,aÃ¢â ¬? adds Kahn. aÃ¢â ¬? It is usually quite expensive to recruit, court, hire and ramp up a new employee,aÃ¢â ¬? he says. With employers being more open to hiring job hoppers, we expect the trend to continue. aÃ¢â ¬? A chance to find the right fit. AÃ Job hopping gives you more opportunities to figure out what you like and donaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢t, and what is important to you in a position and company, Cashman says. Ã¢â ¬? One or two short stints might be acceptable if you went to a company that went bankrupt or were caught up in a layoff or just plain chose the wrong fitaÃ¢â ¬but many of these might indicate you are someone who doesnaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢t have good judgment,aÃ¢â ¬? Cashman says. Tenure of young employees (ages 20 to 34) is only half that (2. 3 years). aÃ¢â ¬? By working at multiple companies you will get to see ways that others are conducting business, while expanding your network to a whole new pool of professionals. Where a single move within a five year span may have labeled someone as a pariah, in some industries nowadays, a move per year isnaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢t unheard of. aÃ¢â ¬? Lesson learned: There are many benefits and drawbacks to job hoppingaÃ¢â ¬but if you do it for the right reasons and maintain healthy relationships with past employers, the pros should outweigh the cons and youaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢ll be seen as a flexible, resourceful candidate. TheyaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢ll fear youaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢ll leave at the first sign of trouble. AÃ aÃ¢â ¬? The employer will wonder if you jump ship at the first sign of trouble, or if you always think the grass is greener someplace else,aÃ¢â ¬? Cashman says. The environment necessary to foster this growth canaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢t be found under a single roof. aÃ¢â ¬? Also at most companies, putting in the years of work with them proves your loyalty helping to strengthen your job security. AÃ Loyalty goes a long way and from the employers perspective gives them dependability that they can count on. aÃ¢â ¬? aÃ¢â ¬? While they often meet in the middle when initially negotiating salaryaÃ¢â ¬because the future employee has some leverage prior to an acceptanceaÃ¢â ¬the subsequent raises are usually lackluster. l have a large, resourceful network. Ã¢â ¬? Social and professional networks are more active and influential than ever before,aÃ¢â ¬? Parnell says. aÃ¢â ¬? That way, when you are finally ready to settle down for several years, you know what you are looking for. aÃ¢â ¬? aÃ¢â ¬? For those in technology, for example, it allows them the opportunity to gain valuable technical knowledge in different environments and cultures. Access to more information and resources. AÃ aÃ¢â ¬? With the entrance of the Internet came a previously nonexistent pipeline of information that functioned as a massive catalyst for change in the employment market,aÃ¢â ¬? Parnell says. Hiring managers were wary of resumes loaded with several short job stints; theyaÃ¢â ¬Ã¢â ¢d think you were an unstable or disloyal employee. Job hopping can be extremely advantageous for certain types of peopleaÃ¢â ¬if they do it for the right reasons, saysAÃ Laurie Lopez, a partner andAÃ senior general manager in the IT Contracts division at WinterWyman. aÃ¢â ¬? Someone who has a diverse background is often more attractive to a potential employer because they potentially bring new ideas and ways of doing things.

Limiting Reactant Definition in Chemistry The limiting reactant or limiting reagent is a reactant in a chemical reaction that determines the amount of product that is formed. Identification of the limiting reactant makes it possible to calculate the theoretical yield of a reaction. The reason there is a limiting reactant is that elements and compounds react according to the mole ratio between them in a balanced chemical equation. So, for example, if the mole ratio in the balanced equation states it takes 1 mole of each reactant to produce a product (1:1 ratio) and one of the reactants is present in a higher amount than the other, the reactant present in the lower amount would be limiting reactant. All of it would be used up before the other reactant ran out. Limiting Reactant Example Given 1 mol of hydrogen and 1 mol of oxygen in the reaction:2 H2 O2 Ã¢â â 2 H2OThe limiting reactant would be hydrogen because the reaction uses up hydrogen twice as fast as oxygen. How to Find the Limiting Reactant There are two methods used to find the limiting reactant. The first is to compare the actual mole ratio of the reactants to the mole ratio of the balanced chemical equation. The other method is to calculate the gram masses of the product resulting from each reactant. The reactant that yields the smallest mass of product is the limiting reactant. Using the Mole Ratio: Balance the equation for the chemical reaction.Convert the masses of reactants to moles, if needed. If the quantities of reactants are given in moles, skip this step.Calculate the mole ratio between reactants using the actual numbers. Compare this ratio to the mole ratio between reactants in the balanced equation.Once you identify which reactant is the limiting reactant, calculate how much product it can make. You can check that you selected the correct reagent as the limiting reactant by calculating how much product the full amount of the other reactant would yield (which should be a larger number).You can use the difference between the moles of non-limiting reactant that are consumed and the starting number of moles to find the amount of excess reactant. If necessary, convert the moles back to grams. Using the Product Approach: Balance the chemical reaction.Convert the given quantities of reactants to moles.Use the mole ratio from the balanced equation to find the number of moles of product that would be formed by each reactant if the full amount was used. In other words, perform two calculations to find the moles of product.The reactant that yielded the smaller amount of product is the limiting reactant. The reactant that yielded the larger amount of produce is the excess reactant.The amount of excess reactant may be calculated by subtracting the moles of excess reactant from the number of moles used (or by subtracting the mass of excess reactant from the total mass used). Mole to gram unit conversions may be necessary to provide answers for homework problems.

Continuum of care for maternal, newborn, and child health in Australia - Essay Example 181). Australia is one of the countries experiencing such problems, particularly in the rural areas. Consequently, the government invests a lot of money in the health care sector. The government had planned to develop and implement locally appropriate evidence based sustainable models of service delivery that included a strong health promotion and prevention focus. Many criticisms were noted during this period. Some people especially from the urban areas believed that the government had already done enough and the introduction of such programs would only waste public money. Consequently, health action by both the Australian government and the society can ensure a continuum of care for maternal, newborn, and child health. The Australian government needs to reconsider the provision of a complete harmonized family-centered service system to succeed in providing continuum care for maternal, newborn, and child health (Kuhlthau, Sheila, Jeanne, Alixandra & Diane et al 2011, p. 137). A synchronized structure of early childhood services that can respond to the upcoming and varying needs of mothers and infants in the rural areas is essential. It aids in achieving better results for children. Moreover, the systems are aimed at ensuring that people and the society become friendlier to children and mothers by providing comprehensive services (Kuhlthau, Sheila, Jeanne, Alixandra & Diane et al 2011, p. 137). The agenda can further improve the level of maternal and child health (MCH) services, especially in the rural areas by creating service systems that concentrate on the needs of family, infants and the society at the local level. Maternal and child health is a section of rural service network that comprises of local organizations, intercession services for early childhood, issues of family conflicts and parenting (Costello, Bernice, Adrian and Barbara 1998, p.169).
