Oct 25, 2015 Assyrians and Indians have some very similar views on women and their marital rights, especially when discussing their duties. In “The Arthashastra” and “The Code of Assura,” women had had a strict life with only being able to do what her husband tells her. The two cultures which these documents come from, Assyria and India are comparable when discussing women’s marriage and property rights, but differ considering how women are punished for breaking marital conditions. Marriage is a sacred practice that both of these cultures take very seriously. Divorce is only granted after all else has failed. What shows commitment to marriage are the strict punishments, put in place by the Assyrians, for any violation to the spouse. “If the wife of a man go out from her house and visit a man where he lives, and he have intercourse with her, knowing that she is a man’s wife, the man and also the woman they shall be put to death.”(Assura p.1) This law gives a punishment to both guilty parties. As for the woman, she must be dedicated to her husband, or be really good at sneaking behind her husband’s back. If caught, she will be put to death. For the Indians, women have to be more faithful, because they have more to lose if divorced. “A woman who hates her husband, who has passed the period of seven turns of her menses, and who loves another, shall immediately return to her husband both the endowment and jewelry she has received from him, and allow him to lie down with another woman “(Kautilya p.1). The interpretation perceived is that even if the woman hates her husband and wants a divorce, but the husband does not, then the marriage is still binding. The woman has no say. The husband must agree for a divorce. If she loves another and still decides to leave, then she must return all of her possessions given to her by her husband during the marriage…...

...Write a Term Paper or Thesis Michael A. Covington Artificial Intelligence Center The University of Georgia Athens, Georgia 30602 http://www.ai.uga.edu/mc Revised May 11, 2011 Abstract This is a basic style guide for writing scientific papers under my direction. It was written for internal use in the Artificial Intelligence Center. However, other science departments may find it helpful. You are encouraged to share it with colleagues. 1 What is a term paper or thesis? In the Middle Ages, in order to be admitted to a trade guild, a craftsman had to demonstrate his ability by producing a piece of work, called his masterpiece, for examination by the officers of the guild. He was then granted the title of Master of his trade. When universities were founded, they immediately emulated this practice and began to grant the degrees of Master and Doctor to people who had proved their ability to do scholarly work. A thesis or dissertation today serves the same purpose as a medieval craftsman’s masterpiece. It is proof of ability to do a certain kind of work. Specifically: • To get a doctor’s degree, you must become familiar with current scientific knowledge of your subject, add to this knowledge by making an original discovery, and then report the results in a dissertation. 1 • To get a master’s degree, it is sufficient to make a new synthesis or application of knowledge already available, and report the results in a thesis. • To pass certain courses, you must write a term paper,......

...Literature Review: Several authors have analyzed aspects of the garment industry in Bangladesh. Of the various aspects of the industry, the problems and the working conditions of female workers have received the greatest attention.  There are several studies including the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS) study by Salma Chowdhury and Protima Mazumdar (1991) and the Bangladesh Unnayan Parisad (1990) study on this topic.  Both of these studies use accepted survey and research methodology to analyze a wealth of data on the social and economic background, problems and prospects of female workers in the RMG sector.  Professor Muzaffar Ahmad looks at the industrial organization of the sector and discusses robustness and long-term viability of apparel manufacturing in Bangladesh. Wiigton (2000) provides a good overview of this industry, especially the developments in the early years.  One of the few studies on the Bangladesh apparel industry to be published in a reputed journal in the U.S. is that of Yung Whee Rhee (2003) who presents what he calls a “catalyst model” of development.  The Bangladesh Planning Commission under the Trade and Industrial Policy (TIP) project also commissioned several studies on the industry. Hossain and Brar (2004) consider some labor-related issues in the garment industry. Quddus (2006) presents a profile of the apparel sector in Bangladesh and discusses some other aspects of the industry. Quddus (2006) presents results from a survey......

...Seminar 5 First Draft – Physician Assisted Suicide INTRODUCTION In my term paper I am going to be answering the question is Physician-Assisted Suicide (PAS) ethically justified? The debate on Physician-Assisted Suicide has been a topic of debate for many years. Born and raised in Michigan I remember all of the news on Dr. Jack Kevorkian assisting terminally ill patients in their death and the controversy on it. The dilemma is whether or not a physician should be allowed to assist a person in ending their life even if they are terminally ill. According to a recent article on The New York Times website, New Mexico just legalized Physician-Assisted Suicide for terminally ill patients. This ruling would make New Mexico the fifth state to allow physicians to prescribe to their terminally ill patients a fatal dose of medications to end their life (Eckholm, 2014). Proponents of Physician-Assisted Suicide believe that terminally ill people should have the right to choose go to the doctors and ask for their help to end their lives and stop their suffering. Of course there would have to be certain steps taken to make sure they were making the right choice. Many supporters of Physician-Assisted Suicide believe that there should be some psychiatric evaluation to make sure that the patient is of a sound mind in their decision to end their life. Opponents of Physician-Assisted Suicide believe that a person does not have a right to end their own life and that it goes......

...HIST 1301 11/25/2013 Title: Clark, Victor S. “The Influence of Manufactures Upon Political Sentiment in the United States From 1820 to 1860.” The American Historical Review, 22 (October 1916): 58-64. Purpose: Victor S. Clark outlines the economic influences of the expansion of manufactures upon the political sentiment in America before the Civil War. He discusses the role of political institutions in the shaping of our economic progress, with the intent to show that the rise in manufactures in the United States during this time brought a stronger form of centralized government that would favor an increase in public intervention of the ecomic activities of individuals. Ultimately he encourages us to believe this was one of the main causes for Civil War in the US during this time. Summary: In the few decades before the Civil War, many Americans relied primarily on the household goods they could produce or acquire locally. Without the need for regulation of these small items, sentiment in the United States leaned towards the idea that people could manage these tasks on their own. However, after the revolution these attitudes began to change with the rise in manufactures and the expansion towards the south. Crops such as tobacco, sugar, and cotton were just a few of the commodities that people in the US and overseas desired for. Inevitably, this caused people to rethink where power should lie to maintain the idea that equality existed among the entire population. From start...

...History 118 Idea Paper 1 by: Pietro Di Matteo Prof. Strickland HIST 118 MR 10:00-11:15 Montclair State University 2/21/14 Why do people go to war? Because they disagree over a certain issue? Because one party feels that they are superior and that anyone else is weak and inferior? The United States in recent years have been involved in wars that were not necessarily theirs to fight. Vietnam was considered one of the biggest wastes of time, money, and soldiers, as well as the Korean Conflict right before that. In order to go to war, one must think to themselves, “how will this be beneficial to me and the country I represent?” There must be a good reason for men to die on the battlefield in order to obtain an end goal. For Woodrow Wilson, he saw World War I as an opportunity to help the peoples of the world. A victory for the United States “would lead to a new world based on ‘peace and justice’ among the ‘free and self-governing peoples of the world.’” To Wilson, this seemed like a good idea to move on from neutrality to warfare so the world would be better off at the end, but it only proved to be a waste of time for the United States. World War I was not a necessary war for the United States to enter. World War I began over in Europe in 1914. At the time, Woodrow Wilson was already in office for two years, and declared that the United States was in neutrality and therefore would not be entering the war. It was not until 1917 when the Germans targeted and attacked American......
