Acupuncture versus Acupressure For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been recognized as the primary medical care throughout East Asia. Today, much of the western world considers TCM an alternate medical system. Acu-Therapy is the most recognized of the TCM system. The system is based on acu points that may affect organ systems of the body. The benefits are of great reward, for pain and ill-health are treated using various treatments and procedures of Acu-Therapy. Acupuncture and Acupressure are the two major treatments of Acu-Therapy. Although the 2 therapies share the same benefits of TCM, they contrast in application, the advantages, and from whom the treatment is administered. Acupuncture employs the use of long thin needles that are inserted through the skin at specific acu-points. Acupressure is applied by the use of finger pressure. The skin is pressed at choreographed acu-points. Depending on treatment, Acupuncture needles may be inserted as superficial as the dermal layer of the skin or as deep as the muscle belly. Acupressure has a strict system of five grams of finger pressure. Acupuncture is an evasive treatment, leaving the patient’s skin exposed during treatment. Acupressure treatments are non evasive; clients may be fully clothed to receive treatment. Considering the application of Acupuncture and Acupressure, there are different advantages between the two modalities. Acupuncture provides immediate results in treatment. In most instances, one treatment session is required for measure results. Although Acupressure may not provide instant results, when combined with a complimentary bodywork modality, Acupressure provides a productive session. Acupuncture is recognized by many HMO and PPO insurance providers. This option is beneficial to people who chooses to have an Acupuncturist as his or her primary care…...

To Kill a Mockingbird Compare and Contrast

...To Kill a Mockingbird Compare and Contrast The excellent novel of “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee is a brilliant piece of American literature. Being an instant bestselling novel, it was also made into an award-winning film. Like most, the book and the film portrayed the same storyline and setting, but also produced significant differences as well. The themes in this story were deceptive appearances, racism and acceptance. To begin with, there were many similarities between the two masterpieces. A good example would be the common fascination between Boo Radley and Scout and Jem. Both parties showed interest for each other. Radley gave the children numerous gifts, while the children constantly approached Boo Radley’s house, trying to get a glimpse of his appearance. In addition, both the book and the film gave the image that Boo himself was a crazed man during the beginning of the story. However as time passed, it was revealed that he is a genuinely kind and loving man. This theme plays a big part of the children’s imagination throughout the entire plot as well. Another significant similarity would be the amount of mutual relationship and respect that the African-American community had for Atticus for defending them in court. It showed that they appreciated Atticus’ help and were grateful for him. If it hadn’t been included in the story, the perception of the African-American community would’ve been very different. More similarities include Tom Robinson attempting......

...OMPARE AND CONTRAST   Compare and Contrast Two Short Stories     Both Kate Chopin in "The Story of an Hour" and James Thurber in "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" discuss the relationship between married couples.   As will be set forth in this paper, the authors reach similar conclusions through very different methods. Neither character relates well to his/her spouse and both are in an unhappy marital situation. It is fairly certain that both Mitty and Mrs. Mallard are loved by their spouses and according to all outward appearances, are in good marriages. Both long to be free, but both have trouble admitting that fact to themselves in a way that will allow them to do something about their situations. Both short stories examine the ironic reality that far from making some people happy, love can be a prison. Alienation, isolation, and the basic need for freedom of spirit are themes running through both stories. The authors make their points with very different uses of form, style, and content.     The short story narrative is used by both authors. Both have a clear time frame, well developed characters, well defined settings, and are told from the third person omniscient perspective (Clugston, 2010). Chopin writes a brief scene from Mrs. Mallard's life which stuns the reader with the knowledge that Mrs. Mallard is joyful at the news of her husband's death. The story covers the space of only one hour, but that hour is filled with revelations about Mrs. Mallard (as cited in......

Contrast Essay

...Body Paragraphs: Point-by-Point Each of your three body paragraphs will follow this format. Each paragraph will focus on a specific point of contrast (PC). Remember that a point of contrast is a quality that both subjects possess in different ways. This is called a “difference in kind.” Apples and oranges both have seeds, but they have different kinds of seeds. Your points of contrast should avoid the Not/-Er Fallacy. In other words, you must write about the actual characteristics of each subject and not simply say one has X but the other does not, or that one has X but the other has more X. Topic Sentences (T) You will have two topic sentences in each paragraph. One will come at the beginning of the paragraph and identify the first subject as it relates the point of contrast (the general difference). After you have provided the necessary information (see below), use a transitional expression (on the other hand, in contrast, however) and write the second topic sentence which will identify the second subject as it relates to the point of contrast. Support Distinguishing Characteristics (DC) After each topic sentence, you will present in specific, clear detail the characteristics that distinguish the first subject from the second. The details you present will vary. If you were writing about the characteristics that distinguish an apple seed from an orange seed, you would need to use description in order to show the reader what makes the apples seed different. ......

...Tuesday/Thursday 10:30-11:45 Compare and Contrast The two pieces of art I've chosen to compare, contrast, and analyze are Woman at the Height of her Beauty, by Kitagawa Utamaro and Mother and Child, by Mary Cassatt. Both pieces are reflective of different societies of the time period in which they were created, and both pieces have a background and deeper meaning that goes beyond what meets the viewers eye. However, the aesthetic appeal varies greatly between the two pieces, as do the ideas they correspond to. Woman at the Height of her Beauty, which was made out of color woodblock print, depicts an Asian woman. The artist used linear movements and minimal decoration to create the woman's form, and in doing so created a simplified yet elegant depiction. Though she is portrayed simply and plainly, her hair pieces and clothing are more elaborate, which draws the viewer's eye to her clothes and accessories rather than the woman. This technique of using vague individual features allows the artist to portray women as a group, rather than an individual woman. The woman's facial expression and the position of her body, namely her hands, which she appears to be stretching, give the impression that she is preparing to do tedious and important tasks. If one were to compare these aspects with the title of the piece, one could come to the conclusion that the artist sees women who work hard and are the most successful to be of the most beauty. This reflects the societal views of......

...Compare-Contrast Essay The thought of doing an essay for most people can at be quite intimidating because of the need to be technically proficient, following the mandatory expectations outlined and some might find them boring because they feel like it is too restrictive in nature. That is merely just a common misconception though, there are several different styles of essays and the two that are going to be discussed are descriptive and narrative essays. The narrative essay's main purpose is to tell a story using characters and a plot, where perhaps a problem is given, and the events that unfold eventually explain a solution to the problem or issue presented. In contrast the descriptive essay can be very powerful in the fact it is written using the five senses (visual, audible, taste, tactile sensations and smells) this allows the author to bring a scene or object to life in the mind of the reader. While narrative essays are almost like a movie that is played out in the judgment of the reader, the descriptive essay paints a vivid photograph or place the reader can experience and this is why descriptive essays are the superior of the two styles. One of the best qualities that narrative essays are able to offer over descriptive essays is they are structured to appeal to the simplest of mankind's urge to share a good story. There are various forms in which we can find a narrative writing example such as a poem, play, novel and the obvious essay. There are times...

...Descriptive versus Narrative This essay is to compare-contrast a narrative and descriptive essay The essays I chose were, “Are the Rich Happy?” written by Stephen Leacock (1916) for the narrative essay and “Homeless” written by Anna Quindlen (n.d.) for the descriptive essay. The title of both essays is what caught my eye and the reason why I read them. Although, I enjoyed reading both essays, I felt the descriptive essay “Homeless” had more value and was the better read. Therefore, in this essay, I am going to compare/contrast the author’s purpose, the difference in their use of descriptive language, and the impact on the reader’s that each author intended to accomplish through the essay that they wrote. I also plan to show why, in the case of these two essays, I felt that the descriptive essay “Homeless” was the better read. One comparison of these two essays is the descriptive language they use. A narrative essay is written to tell a story. In the essay “Are the Rich Happy?” the author Leacock tells a story of his encounters with people he thought to be rich. He sarcastically tells the story using some vague descriptive language. His descriptions are not such that you can see or feel but, so that you understand who he is talking about, their expressions, and their lifestyles so that you can see the comparison he is making between the rich and the poor. In his essay he speaks of a man who makes fifty thousand dollars a year and has told him with great frankness that it is......

...the three main pillars of a success full society. These are; education, infrastructure and food availability. From his speech, the president is requesting the people to focus more on these three aspects. In his address to the national association of American evangelicals, President Reagan had other views about the American society. He opens his speech by acknowledging the role of religious groups in the building of the American society. This is an issue that had no coverage in Johnson’s address. While Reagan concentrates on religious beliefs as the instigators of social growth and development, Johnson preferred that use of education and riches as the means to achieve the same goal. This contrast is evident in the way these two presidents gave their opening speeches. The other big contrast between these two speeches is Reagan’s reiteration the freedom and liberty are things that can only be enjoyed with the full blessings of God (Rodgers, 2011, p164). This is a religious perspective that Johnson ignored and based his theory of growth in self preservation. The other major point of departure between these two speeches is the audience. While Reagan chose to address the religious and more conservative part of the population, Johnson went for the secular and more liberal society. The undertones in each speech were designed to identify with the target audience. Reagan pointed out that the political philosophy that motivates his administration is largely influenced by religious......

...Epistemological Comparison and Contrast Dorothy M. Conner University of Phoenix Epistemological Comparison and Contrast Descartes ' Theory of Knowledge Rene Descartes is one of the most renowned rationalists of the modern age who asserts that knowledge can be obtained by means of reason. He claims that in the acquisition of knowledge one should be able to distinguish what is true and what is false. This leads to his opposition against the idea of experience as a source of knowledge As Descartes claims it, one should not rely on experience as a source of knowledge for the reason that experience is deceptive as how a person's sensory organs can bring deception with the way he or she perceives things (i.e. the bending of the pencil when submerged in water). Descartes furthers states that because of this fallibility of experience one cannot really arrive at true knowledge by merely being dependent on what he or she perceives through experience. As a result of Descartes treatment of experience, he suggests that to attain genuine and true knowledge, one should defer his or her judgment on things that are represented to him or her by experience unless such are presently proven to be unquestionable. Descartes is a perplexity in many ways. Although he has a refreshing distaste for the voodoo logic of his day steeped as it was in the questionable science of the scholastic movement, when provoked he was equally capable of skewing his own thinking when confronted with the......

...Contrast Essay When family from another state comes to visit you want to show them some of the activities that their home town does not provide. There are so many options people can choose from. I think two of the most common places people go to when they have visitors are theme parks or city fairs. Theme parks and city fairs are very different and each provides us with their type of fun activities. Theme parks have a great advantage over city fairs when it comes down to rides, bigger location, and price. Many people prefer theme parks because they offer better activities for fun, which gives theme parks an advantage over city fairs. An advantage theme parks have would be the rides. Everyone who has been to a theme park enjoys its rides. The rides are fast and they go in different directions which makes it better for the customers because it does not make them dizzy. They also last for a longer a period of time which makes it worth wild because sometimes you have to wait in line for an hour or even more. Also, theme parks are located in bigger place which gives more people the opportunity to attend at whatever time they like and still find tickets available. The bigger location of the park comes in handy because it does not get crowded and you have enough space to walk comfortable without anyone bumping into you. Another advantage theme parks have over city fairs is the price. The tickets are around thirty dollars and sometimes they have offers were you buy one get...

...husband and fled across the country. Recognizing Dr. Mitchell’s good intentions, like those of the Narrator’s physician/husband in the story, Gilman mailed a copy to him in the hopes that he would recognize the cruelty inherent to his “rest” treatment. Despite Gilman’s belief that Dr. Weir subsequently abandoned prescribed rest for depression, there is no evidence that “The Yellow Wallpaper” had any affect upon the doctor’s methods. Sunlight/Moonlight The moon has long been associated with female power as with early fertility-centered societies and the Greek goddess Artemis the huntress whose natural realm was the light of the moon. For the Narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper” the contrast between daytime with its attendant limitations and nighttime with its attendant freedoms are symbolized by the alternating affects of sunlight and daylight upon the wallpaper. During the day, the Narrator’s freedom is checked by her physician/husband’s “rest” treatment. Though she can see a bay in the distance and paths leading to it, she cannot move beyond the confines of the estate. Daytime is also associated with work, an activity overseen if not performed by men in Gilman’s time. As an upper-middle class woman in the Nineteenth century, the prevailing societal mores and codes further restrict the Narrator’s daytime activities to housekeeping. At night, however, while her husband is either asleep or away, the Narrator’s mind is free to roam sub-pattern revealed by the moonlight upon the......

Both men have what appears to be either a beard or a veil covering the bottom portion of their face and extending down to the top portion of their chest. Hammurabi has a rounded helmet on while Shamash has conical hat that appears to have a concentric circular pattern. Shamash is holding a scepter in his right hand while his left hand is bare but clenched in a fist. There are three rays emanating from each of Shamash’s shoulders. The chair that Shamash is seated on has a pedestal area that ensures his feet do not touch the ground while seated. The raised area by his feet appears to be alternating stones of similar size and shape in three different levels. The chair itself has a shrinking rectangular pattern on the side with the longest end being vertical. Hammurabi’s left forearm is placed over his stomach and waist while his right forearm is held over his stomach and chest with an open palm. Hammurabi’s feet are not visible but one of Shamash’s feet is.

Alternating State Government It Security Policies

...Alternating State Government IT Security Policies University of Maryland University College Europe Instructor: Professor Cybersecurity in Government Organizations CSIA 360 24 April 2016 The purpose of IT Security Policies within the state governments IT security policies are the foundation that any business or government should have implemented with their IT systems before the systems are going to be accessed or in other terms used by users and or customers. The successful implementation of such IT security policies are necessary for the infrastructure of IT systems that are going to be operated safely. IT security policies normally are papers that address the requirements of the system’s rules that are to be fulfilled, which usually is a defined set of rules. The individual IT security policy addresses a specific area in detail like such as an acceptable user policy that outlines how the system is to be used with what each user can perform on the system (SANS, 2016). Each individual state is responsible for implementing its own IT security policy because there is no precise must do practice in place when it comes to fulfilling IT security policies for the state governments. State agencies and offices are responsible for their own IT security policies. Each state addresses IT security policies and the associated problems with implementing these, but two states barely mention the topic, which reflects with rare information concerning their cybersecurity......

...Compare and contrast three different types of thinking and comment on how each effects the critical thinking process Logical Creative Optimistic Creative and logical-- Critical thinking and decision making is the process to find the truth. An important aspect of thinking is the process that relies on the ability to coordinate and structure our ideas so that they make sense. Training our mind to use the critical thinking process gives people a better understanding of the information. This paper will discuss the three different thinking styles. It will also compare and contrast logical style, persuasive style, and creative style. Critical thinking will be applied to the decision making process by using work environment examples. The logical style of thinking is a complex process in which reasoning is used to come to a conclusion. This style involves a sequence of steps or thoughts used to solve a problem. According to Kirby and Goodpaster (2007), along with creative thought, inductive and deductive logic comprise the bedrock and substance of all our thinking. Using the two major elements of logical thinking, deductive and inductive reasoning, solutions can be tested with tried and true methods. This style is very distinct and follows a more structured and analytical path using proven methods in order to reach the conclusions. When comparing logical thinking to the creative and persuasive styles of thinking, all three require detailed processes to reach conclusions.......
