that has been advocated by scholars such as Weiler in the 1990's, but there is much more to the problem than the European Parliament not having a proportionate amount of power (George and Bache. 269: 2006). This is only part of the institutional aspect of the democratic deficit. There is also the socio-psychological angle, as well as the possibility the deficit has been miss interpreted, and the problem is in fact one of credibility. This essay sets out to uncover the different aspects of the democratic deficit and tries to suggest possible solutions to the problem.

A person's identity is extremely important in health and social care because identity is related to how people perceive themselves and how other people perceive them. Identity is relevant to both service providers and users, since the relationships between them are formed by the way they identify with each other. Individuals have many different and multi-faceted identities, and social factors contribute significantly to the development, acceptance or rejection of these identities. Moreover, some service users can be stereotyped as abnormal or different.

Global Warming and the Two-Part Solution. In The Environmental Issue from Hell, Bill McKibben argues for a new approach to global warming.
McKibben points out that, "most of us live lives so divorced from the natural world that we hardly notice the changes anyway." (McKibben) Let's say that if it gets hotter out, we would just turn our AC up and not think anything of it. These new technologies are not letting us feel the consequences of global warming causing us to be completely ignorant of it. That is why it is so important to make people realize now because, "By the time the magnitude of the change is truly in our faces, it will be too late to do much about it."(McKibben)

Argument Analysis - In Hecho en Amrica, Jeanne Marie Laskas, a correspondent for GQ Magazine, recounts the season that she spent picking blueberries in Maine alongside the constant wanderers who put fruit on our table.
To attempt to gain a better understanding of how immigrants in the United States live, Laskas spent a season in Maine with a group of immigrants, picking wild blueberries. The result? She seems more knowledgeable on the subject, therefore her intended audience, middle-class citizens, are more inclined to have confidence in her words. It makes her seem like she has the best interest of the people in mind. Laskas' experiences on the blueberry farm influence her opinion on immigration, which affects the entire article.

Theology Statement. As an individual constantly seeking out intellectual challenges, I believe that Religious Studies and Theology would give me a genuine opportunity to stretch and test myself. I believe it would also fulfil my desire to study a subject
Although studying a purely Philosophical and Ethical course at AS level, discussions with my teachers regarding other faiths and religions, such as Buddhism, has led to a broader curiosity in the subject. As a member of Christian Union, I deepened my enthusiasm for the subject and have increased my understanding and knowledge of both the Bible and Christian events, in particular, Christian Theology and its history. Religion is something that really inspires and drives me, and it is something that I take enormous pleasure in studying.

Then the energized myosin head binds to the unblocked myosin-binding site on the actin molecule in cross-bridge formation. An inorganic phosphate is released from the myosin head, initiating the power stroke that allows the myosin head to rotates and bends as it pulls the thin filament toward the center of the sarcomere. As a result of the power stroke, ADP is released from the mysosin head. Then another ATP attaches to the myosin head, breaks down to ADP and inorganic phosphate, which provides enough energy for the myosin head to lift-off and end the cross bridge so that it'll be free to reattach to the next actin molecule.

I was curious to find out what would have a more impact on obesity rates: having excess money or not having enough money. Another factor to consider while comparing high-income and low-income families in correlation with obesity rates is the cost of sports; "the opportunity to take part in sports programs is much more limited for parents with lower income, simply because the costs of these programs are often remarkably high" (Taylor, 1). Those individuals and/or families that receive lower income or are in poverty simply would not be able to afford for their children to be involved in extra-curricular activities.

(Evans et.al, 2003; pg 49) Every industry has some superior performers who have some strategic capability which enables them to outperform their competitors. This includes the resources and competences of an organisation necessary for its survival. According to Johnson (2002) organisations have some tangible resources such as people, machinery, finance and some intangible resources such as skills, knowledge, reputation and information. The efficiency and effectiveness by which an organisation uses its resources is termed as competence. Competences can be developed internally or acquired externally by suppliers, customers or distributors.

Desire is the part of the soul which creates a hunger or want for things. Plato refers to the spirit as where your honour and self-respect lies. The reason or rational part of your soul judges what is good for the soul as a whole and is needed to make good decisions. Everyone has these three parts to their soul but it is those that are correctly proportioned that are truly virtuous. Plato goes on to state that for a person to be virtuous all desires must be extinguished and those desires must become longing for truth and goodness.

The real world is a dark and desolate world that has been unintentionally destroyed by humans alone as a result of them fighting for control over their lives against the machines they once created to help them.

This means that the original offer had ceased to exist once a counter-offer had been made by Jill. Additionally, both her methods of communicating acceptance were questionable given the means utilized by the original offeror, Alice, by electronic mail. In using the fax machine method of communication in accepting the offer, Jack had refrain from having his acceptance immediately communicated because the fax was to Alice's work place which means she would not have received it until she got to work at a later time. Therefore, this would have delayed Jack's acceptance of the offer, which Alice would have been expecting at a quicker time using the method she had used to communicate the offer, email.

The total amount of aggregate claim in year t can be expressed as: Where N(t) = the number of claims at time t X(i,t) = the amount claimed by the ith claim at time t Each X(i,t) are independent log-normal variables with mean 20000 and variance 20000. Based on this data, the parameters of X(i,t) can be obtained which are ? = 9.903462553 and ? = (7.070979426 ? 10-3) 1 N(t) is distributed following a Poisson distribution with ? = 4.5. With the average number of claims given as 4.5 and expected amount of claim is 20000, so the analytical result of the expected aggregate claim is $90 000.2 However, in order to develop a more realistic approach, Microsoft Excel program is used to simulate 7000 random events.

The weather stations show relatively slow wind speeds across the British Isles with Hull having the strongest wind speed of 18 - 22 Knots. This is because of a higher pressure gradient force in this area shown by the isobars being closer together. North west and south west Ireland both have speeds of 13 - 17 Knots. The rest of England, Wales and Scotland have weak winds of only 8 - 12 Knots which is a typical trend of high pressure systems.

Critically evaluate whether incidents of mercy killing should b prosecuted as murder or manslaughter in English criminal law?
Euthanasia has been 'decriminalised' in some European countries, such as The Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland. As early as 1984, the Dutch Supreme Court declared that 'voluntary euthanasia' was 'acceptable', and in 2002, the Netherlands became the first EU country to legalise adult euthanasia. 'Physician-assisted suicide' is now practiced with increasing openness in the Netherlands. 'Assisted suicide' exists in Switzerland; legally condoned, it can be performed by non-physicians. Swiss law clearly decriminalises assisted suicide without the involvement of a doctor; this means that non-physicians can participate in assisted suicide. Though the issue remains controversial, many terminally ill foreigners, including Britons, now travel to Switzerland to commit suicide, taking advantage of the Swiss rules, which are among the worlds most liberal on assisted suicide.
