...Teen Pregnancy Teens that are pregnant face unique problems. One, being a teen and being pregnant hold it’s on risk. In addition, teens who are mothers at an early age often have the fact that he or she is a parent interfere with his or her education, there are also problems involving social opportunities and employment options. Special problems that pregnant teenagers encounter are the financing of the pregnancy, the right to abort the fetus while being a minor, and the option to give the child up for adoption. These problems are unique to this population because many adults do not encounter these issues. Minors usually need the consent of at least one parent or other authorized adult to receive medical treatment but minors in certain situations can consent to some types of reproductive health and pregnancy related treatment on their own behalf. If a minor is getting treatment with the help of insurance, then the parent of the minor is involved and is aware of the services received. If the minor is concerned about involving his or her parents, other resources for payment are sought. Clinics such as Planned Parenthood provide assistance in family planning, abortion, and pregnancy services. The Adolescent Family Life Program is a free program available in California. All pregnant and parenting teens are eligible regardless of income. In addition, case management is provided to minor parents to help them access services which include medical services, child care, nutritional...

Special People and Special Needs

...Special People and Special Needs According to the California Department of Education, a special population is one that fits into one of the following criteria: “Individuals with disabilities; individuals from economically disadvantaged families, including foster children; individuals preparing for nontraditional training and employment; single parents, including single-pregnant women; displaced homemakers; and individuals with other barriers to educational achievement, including individuals with limited English proficiency ("Special Populations", 2014).” Many of the homeless fall into more than one category of Special Populations. The National Healthcare for the Homeless Council (2014) adopts the U .S. Department of Health and Human Services’ definition of what it means to be homeless stating a homeless person is, “ an individual who lacks housing (without regard to whether the individual is a member of a family), including an individual whose primary residence during the night is a supervised public or private facility (e.g., shelters) that provides temporary living accommodations, and an individual who is a resident in transitional housing.” Homelessness does not discriminate against age, adults and children are homeless. The most common causes of homelessness is a lack of affordable housing, poverty, unemployment, substance abuse, and mental illness ("Facts And Figures: The Homeless", 2010). As of 2009, one in 50 children in America were homeless, or approximately...

The Struggle of Hawaiian Soverignty

...In the article called “The struggle for Hawaiian Sovereignty” it mostly focus on how Hawaiians lands and culture have been taken away from companies and tourism. On page two, the author argues that by the 1970’s, urbanization has developed quickly in Hawaii and evictions were notified to the Hawaiians that they must leave their land because companies would be building hotels or homes. One argument I want to make is where is the media plays a role? We hear about Justin Bieber blowing a blunt or Miley Cyrus twerking in one of her concerts. What I am trying to say is that we always hear all these pointless news every day. Many people don’t even know what is going on with our environment such as global warming, and they still buy plastic bottles or using pesticides for their garden. If more people knew what is actually going on with our environment and ways for people to make a difference, maybe our water wouldn’t be contaminated too much. The media does play a big role in our life. Today we hear that government is drilling a hole in a land to find oil, but they never mention who lives there and who is being affected. We never hear about indigenous losing their land or how we are losing our natural resources. Without any natural resources, what will happen to our future generation? In the “Paradigm War,” the author argues that corporate are claiming ownership over plants that indigenous people have used to heal and help the ill. On Page 64, the author argues that “TRIPS lays......

Hawaiian Culture

...Hawaiian Culture Audri Rowell Axia of University of Phoenix Hawaiian Culture Our Hawaiian culture was originally inhabited by the Polynesians that appeared to have begin in 1758 with the birth of Kamehamcha the Great. Captain James Cook, a British explorer, first arrived at Oahu, one of the principal islands of our Hawaiian group, in January 1788. In 1790 Kamehameha undertook the difficult task of bringing all of our Hawaiian Islands under one single rule. After 20 years of intermittent warfare the last island, Kauai, came under his dominion. The Kamehameha Dynasty continued until 1872, ending with the death of the fifth ruler by that name. During this period of time more representatives of the European and American countries made their appearance in Hawaii. Our Hawaii legislature was established in 1845 which was at close of the Kamehameha Dynasty. The U. S. established a temporary territory over our islands during the shift in governments and talks were under way between the two countries contemplating the annexation to the U. S. while an agreement to this effect was completed in Washington, however U.S. President Stephen Cleveland withdrew the agreement prior to approval pending further investigation of conflicting governmental claims in Hawaii. A five-man commission was then appointed to draw up an Act for the government of the new territory of Hawaii. The act was submitted to Congress and it was passed in April 1900. Under this...

Hawaiian Residents and the Energy Crisis

...Hawaii residents pay the highest rates for electricity in the United States. In 2012, Hawaiian residents paid more than 34 cents per kilowatt-hour. That is more than three times higher than the average in the rest of the United States. When compared with states such as Wyoming who average around 7 cents per kilowatt-hour and noticing the disconnect between Hawaii and the rest of the country, it’s easy to see why Hawaii is in desperate need of a local, consistent, cheap energy source. Each of Hawaii’s six main islands has its own electrical grid. The chart below illustrates the electrical use for each island/grid with the total use in GWh for the entire state of Hawaii. Note that twenty-eight percent of the kWh of electricity use are residential, while seventy-eight percent of the kWh of electricity use are commercial: To meet the growing needs of the consumers, Hawaii has invested heavily on growing the production of renewable energy sources. Although Hawaii’s electricity production and costs are still heavily reliant on oil, energy efficiency and renewable energy have been increasing across the state. In fact in 2012, Hawaii saw a fifteen percent hike in renewable energy generation from 11.9% to 13.7%. Twenty percent of all renewable energy generated statewide comes from Hawaii’s single geothermal power plant, the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV). In 2012, the PGV produced 266 GWh of electricity which represented twenty-three percent of Hawaii’s (the island,......

Hawaiian Religion

...Lorie Bock Jon Conescue PhD Religion 107 3/3/2010 Traditional Hawaiian Religion Ancient darkness separates and the earth and sky are formed…the empty space between them is where all life forms emerged. This is the story behind Hawaiian chants, often intricate, telling of the earth’s creation. Wakea and his female companion Papa are believed to be the Gods of the earth and sky, according to primeval Polynesian culture, but they alone are not the only Gods (akua). The Hawaiian religion also speaks of thousands of other akua who were believed to be descendants of the earliest Gods, some may have come from the memories of great ancestors, and others from the features of the beautiful nature that surrounded the Polynesian people. Gods from this religion are believed to be responsible for many facets of the Polynesian culture, including volcanoes, the oceans, movement of the stars, and fertility. A real joy to discover was the fact that there are Gods known for mischief, which are said to be the inspiration for chanters and storytellers. I can’t help but compare the Hawaiian beliefs to those of the Native American Indians; both cultures seem to embrace the living world around them. The art that both cultures create as a way to celebrate their beliefs has become a mainstay of their lives, and the thankfulness for the nature that surrounds them is a lesson in humility to all other cultures.

Hawaiian Journal

...looking into our reading in the Hawaiian journey book, we see a change in Hawaii’s economy from plantation based to tourism. In the 1800’s, Hawaii’s economy was mainly based on the farming of pineapple, sugarcane, and coffee. Evidence of an economic change: 1967, approximately 1,000,000 tourists visited the islands; a few decades later today it’s at about 6-7 million (Muliins 128). Through those numbers we can see how much the tourist industry grew. This industry was allowed to grow largely because of technological advancements. First, rather than sailing over by boat, which took a long time, tourists for the first time could fly to Hawaii with invention of the jumbo jet. I can’t imagine how amazed people must have been at the time at the thought of cutting travel time from days to hours! Hawaii became a desirable place for people to vacation, and naturally, Hawaii conformed to the western ideas of industrializing. People like Walter Dillingham dredged the Alawai which turned Waikiki from a marshland to what it is today, along with constructing Ala Moana Shopping center, which is still a main attraction today. Henry Kaiser built a series of large hotels and building which were on the Waikiki coastline. Besides tourists, there were also many people just moving to Hawaii, so many new houses were built. All of this was occurring without the consent of the rightful owners of the land: Hawaiians. This lead to many protests along with a Hawaiian cultural Renaissance......

Hawaiian

...gifts from a trip for friends and family. Some people use the Japanese name for such gifts, omiyage. Others use the Hawaiian word, "makana" or the Samoan term "oso." Gifts of special foods unavailable outside the region visited are particularly appropriate. For example, Krispy Kreme is not available on the island of Oahu and visitors to Maui, where the only franchise is located, often return with donuts for friends and family. Conversely, locals traveling to the US mainland and abroad will take foods from Hawai'i to friends and relatives where local foods are unavailable. If someone has given you gift items or has done a service for you without asking for repayment, it is always wise and of good upbringing to at least give them something in return or offer them money. While it is common for people to play "hot potato" and refuse to accept the money, the important idea is that the offer was made. Locals do not always like to feel as if they are taking and will often return the favor of giving with giving. When someone outright refuses to accept your donation, some locals will make it a personal challenge to make sure this person is repaid by slyly hiding the money in the other person's belongings and making sure they are out of sight as to not be given anything back. In that case, it is best just to keep the form of repayment and be sure to do something special for the person the next time you see them.[cita ------------------------------------------------- Wedding......

...Hawaiian Air Case Preliminary Questions: Assessing Hawaiian Airlines’ Business 1. Factors to use to think about buying HA’s stock: Customers – 2014 marked the first year that Hawaiian carried more than 10 million guests in a single year which is 80% higher than 10 years ago. The most emerging tourism market for the airline is China which is the reason that the airline added a triweekly service from Beijing to the islands. Although this market seemed to be booming at the end of 2014, the decrease of economic growth in the country recently could hurt the tourism market from China. The customers of Hawaiian are not all identical which makes it critical that the airline’s business is not dependent upon a single or few customers and the loss of any one customer would not have a huge effect on Hawaiian’s business. Cost Structure – The greatest and most important cost for Hawaiian is the cost of airline fuel. Operations are significantly affected by the availability and price of jet fuel. The lower the fuel, the better for the airline as it is more cost effective, however, because of the binding hedging contracts that the company has to protect itself against low fuel prices, costs will not be cut as much as assumed. Recently, the appreciation of the US dollar, and extremely low oil prices (fuel prices) have cut costs for Hawaiian and other airlines nationwide, and in 2014 Hawaiian consumed more gallons of fuel than in 2013 or 2012 and still maintained lower fuel costs in both...
