Budget Reflection
The Canadian budget for 2016 seems promising. I believe that the budget gone improve us in many areas such as in health care and a better Future for indigenous peoples. The Trudeau government is tackling many issues that we have here in Canada, and it reflected through the budget.
Firstly, for years people have been complaining about the terrible state of healthcare. Doctors and nurses have been leaving Quebec and Canada to go to the US for better job opportunities. This has created long lines and long waits, overcrowding, and the shutting down of several hospitals. The 2003-2004 budget allows for a $34.8 billion increase to healthcare over the next five years. The money will go to solving problems such as length of waiting, quality of care, reducing length of time needed for a diagnosis, research, and home care. Over the next five years $9.5 billion will be transferred to the provinces and territories. An immediate transfer of $2.5 billion will go to relieve some of the more urgent healthcare problems. Also $16 billion in a Health Reform Fund over the next five years will be used for "primary care, home care and catastrophic drug coverage. $5.5 billion will be invested to promote the health of Canadians; which includes better diagnosis and medical equipment, among other things. The current budget also makes allowances for the health of Aboriginal Canadians. The federal government has provided $1.3 billion for Aboriginal healthcare over the next five years, as well as $600 million that will go to improving water treatment and waste disposal on the reserves. As an added bonus the government has expanded the employment insurance program to include those who must stay home and take care of a sick loved one for an extended period of time, it has been entitled.
Secondly, Budget 2016 is aiming to improve the living conditions of Indigenous peoples and…...

In all the inhumane executions the Taliban committed, the most well-known were the ones completed in the Ghazi Stadium. The stadium is located in Kabul, the capital city of Afghanistan, and was built in 1923 as a multi-functional stadium. After Taliban invasion, the officials shot down the stadium and turned it into an execution ground. In a news article published by The Epoch Times, the black-turbaned Taliban (black is the colour of war or surrendering ego in Islam; Taliban claimed themselves as Mujahideen, soldiers of God) would ask the convicts to kneel before the goalposts; then, the so-called felons who had disobey God’s word (283) would be stoned or shot dead.

Scalability is of particular interest to ad hoc network designers and users and is an issue with critical influence on capability and capacity. Where topologies include large numbers of nodes, routing packets will demand a large percentage of the limited wireless bandwidth and this is exaggerated and exacerbated by the mobility feature often resulting in a high frequency of failure regarding wireless links. In this paper we present acomprehensive survey and classification of recently published clustering algorithm, which we classify based on their objectives. We survey different clustering algoirthm for MANET's; highlighting the defining clustering, the design goals of clustering algorithms, advantages of......

How Did the Crusader States Survive? 1100-1144

...disunity during this period was of significant importance in aiding Christian states to persist. Although glimpses of Jihad and united Muslim warfare were seen in the latter stages of this period, ultimately there was very little unity of effort to mount a well-directed campaign against the Crusader states hence this facilitated Crusader states’ survival. The division of the Muslims between 1101 and 1102 between the Shi’ites of Egypt and the great Sunni Syrian Power was instrumental since had Baldwin I faced this combined threat right at the start of his reign, the odds of Christendom being overwhelmed would have been much more likely. Muslim disunity was also evident in 1114, when Roger of Antioch fought alongside Tughtigin of Damascus and II Ghazi of Mardin to fight off Bursuq, commander of the Sultan’s army from Baghdad. Albeit alliances like this were not very common, it does show that the Franks benefited enough from the Muslim disunity to forge alliances and fight off their enemies with a considerably greater force, and thereby enhancing their own protection. Yet Muslim Disunity alone wasn’t enough to guarantee the Crusader states’ survival: for although Christendom didn’t face a combined and deadly Muslim attack – the leaders still had to negotiate alliances and truces effectively whilst taking advantage of Muslim disunity in order for the crusader states to live on. Furthermore, Muslim Disunity had little impact on the establishment of the Military Orders, which was......

...The Modern World Professor Gwen Alexis Islamic Empires Timeline The Ottoman Empire: 1289: “Osman” Osman Bey, founder of the dynasty that continued in unbroken succession from 1289 until the dissolution of the empire in 1923. Osman was chief of a band of seminomadic Turks who migrated to northwestern Anatolia in the thirteenth century. Osman and his followers sought above all to become ghazi, Muslim religious warriors who fought on behalf of the faith. 1326: “Ottoman Expansion” The Ottomans’ location on the borders of the Byzantine Empire afforded them ample opportunity to wage holy war. Their first great success came in 1326 with the capture of the Anatolian city of Bursa, which became the capital of the Ottoman principality. 1352: They established a foothold in Europe when they seized the fortress of Gallipoli. The city of Edirne (Adrianople) became a second Ottoman capital and served as a base for further expansion into the Balkans. As warriors settled in frontier districts and pushed their boundaries forward, they took spoils and gathered revenues that enriched both the ghazi and the central government. Mehmed The Conqueror 1453: The capture of Constantinople in 1453 by Mehmed II (reigned 1451–1481)—known as Mehmed the Conqueror—opened a new chapter in Ottoman expansion. With its superb location and illustrious heritage, Constantinople became the new Ottoman capital, subsequently known as Istanbul. SÜLEYMAN THE MAGNIFICENT: The Ottomans continued their......

...Muslims of Lebanon, family loyalty ranked first in order of importance; followed by religion, nationality, ethnic group, and political party (Ghazi). 2. Extended Family It is not uncommon for a family in Lebanon to have a three-generation extended family. It is considered to be traditional. This three-generation family includes a man, his wife or wives, their unmarried children, their married sons, and the sons’ wives and children. Families extend their loyalty to the family to employment. In 1960, almost 25% of the deputies in the Chamber of Deputies “inherited” their seats in the chamber. Wealthy family members are also expected to share with their families that are not as prosperous (Ghazi). 3. Dynamics of the Family a. Parental Roles Even though the husband and wife share authority, the wife usually has more influence over the children and the housework (“Culture of Lebanon...”). b. Marriage and Courtship Premarital and extramarital sexual relations are a big disgrace for families in Lebanon and highly frowned upon. If improper conduct towards an unmarried woman occurs, it damages her honor to her family and often the father and brothers will seek “redress” which can result in killing the woman and man involved, or driving the man out of the village (Ghazi). Men may have up to four wives, but most men marry just two wives due to the economic burden to have such a large family. Typically......

...enough to let them in, he told them Sohrab was fantastic with his slingshot, from which he was inseparable. In the man's makeshift office, he explained that they had no heat or hot water and very little food or supplies. The Taliban refused to pay for renovations or improvements. The man did not seem to want to talk about Sohrab. When Amir insisted, he revealed that a Talib official had taken Sohrab a month earlier. This official came every few months and paid to take a child with him; the man had no choice but to consent, or he knew he and all his children would be shot. This news so enraged Farid that he tackled the man and tried to strangle him to death until Amir intervened. The man told Amir that he could find the Talib official at Ghazi stadium, where the national team played soccer. Chapter Twenty-One After Amir visited the orphanage in Karteh-Seh, the horrifying truth about Afghanistan fell upon him more and more rapidly. As he and Farid drove away, he saw a forgotten corpse hanging in front of a restaurant. He saw a man selling his artificial leg, no doubt to buy food for his children. When they reached the Wazir Akhbar Khan district where Amir grew up, he was relieved to see that it had weathered somewhat better than the other neighborhoods. The chapter is interrupted by Amir's memory of finding a turtle in the backyard with Hassan. They painted its shell red and marched it around as though they were discoverers of a wondrous new species. Even though they......

War Have You Ever Been in War?

...countries. Effects of wars produce a lot of troubles, such as death of innocent people, destruction of cities and pollution. One major effect of war is the killing of innocent people. It is a bad feeling you see death of innocents on the streets. We all saw what happened in Iraq. There were a lot of victims of this war. In 1965 in Vietnam many innocent people were killed. There is also local war, for example, in Syria between the government and the innocent people. Innocent people die as a result of war. Another effect of war is the destruction of cities. Destructions of cities are the problems that take a long time to fix. Baghdad was a city of Arab civilization but after the war it is not. In Libya Algadafi and his army destroyed Bin Ghazi by bombing. Berlin was destroyed after World War II. Pollution is another effect of war. It is still remain after wars. In 1990 the Gulf War produced a lot of pollution and waste in the Arab Gulf Sea. Pollution after Hiroshima bomb is the reason for many diseases like cancer. Another example of pollution is the Agent Orange herbicide that US army used on Vietnam War and it polluted the rivers and soils and made them not appropriate resources anymore. In conclusion we cannot count all the effects of wars because there are a lot of effects. Three major and horrible effects of war are the death of innocent people, destruction of cities and pollution. War hurts the people. I think that all of the people around the world want to......

...secondary splenomegaly as a result of primary Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). Because of its proximity to the diaphragm, splenomegaly results in pain or fullness in the left upper abdomen (subsequent tenderness and loss of appetite) that may spread to the left shoulder (non-specific arthralgia). Splenomegaly may result in anemia (bruising, bleeding gums, decrease in pallor) fatigue and frequent infections (4 year old John’s WBC 250, 000 count and fever 102°F). However, in John’s case, some of the symptoms related to splenomegaly can also overlap with those of his diagnosis of ALL such as fever and abdominal distention. Additionally, anorexia, headache, seizures, lethargy, arthralgia, infection, and bruising are also potential side effects (Ghazi et al., 2010). Pathophysiology of acute lymphoblastic leukemia-AML comparison According to Gedaly et al., 2006, acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the most “common form of childhood cancer and accounts for 1/3 of cancer diagnoses in children younger than 15 and 28% of cancer diagnoses in those younger than 20, page 641.” The pathogenesis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a form of leukemia in which there is a neoplasm of the immature white blood cells (lymphoblast) produced by the bone marrow. This subsequently interferes with the body’s natural ability to compensate. The pathophysiology of ALL involves its monoclonal origin, uncontrolled cell proliferation by sustained self-stimulation of their receptors for growth, no......

Hezberg Two Factor Theory

...(King, 1970). Another important thing to consider here is that sometimes employees assert that their own role or work provides them with the satisfaction while those factors that are outside their control are usually responsible for the dissatisfaction. It is also not always guaranteed that the provision of motivational factors will always lead to greater work output. These are the key implications of Herzberg’s two factor theory which can be observed sometimes in different corporations or companies. Criticism of Theory This theory has come under some criticisms since its publication in 1959. Most of the critics are of the view that this theory is overgeneralized due to the narrow sample size which only contains engineers and accountants (Ghazi, Shahzada, & Khan, 2013). This means that this theory might not be able to properly explain the overall motivation factors in all of the employment fields. Ethical Implications The Two-Factor theory is of the view that the managers should responsibly stress upon guaranteeing the adequacy of the hygiene factors that are necessary for avoiding any kind of employee dissatisfaction. On the other hand, the managers must also make sure that the employees find the work to be stimulating and rewarding so that the motivation to work and perseverance does not die. The theory basically addresses the concept of ‘Job Enrichment’ which is basically an attempt to motivate the employees by allowing them to use a wide range of their skills at......

Nazi German Involvement in the Middle East

...However, the fundamental political importance of the death was the fact that there no longer was a strong unifying counterweight to the stronger and ever louder nationalist aspirations within Iraq. The fundamental wish of these movements being ultimately the complete removal of British influence within Iraq. This can also be seen as the starting point for Grobba’s involvement in domestic issues within the Iraq. The death of King Faisal also meant that his son, Prince Ghazi, was now coroneted. Unlike his father King Ghazi held a strong antipathy towards the British, having been suspended and subsequently send home from British boarding school due his strong dislikes and his inherent incompatibility with the British students around him. King Ghazi was also a much stronger nationalist and populist than his father and was willing to antagonize the British, this made him popular with the local population, however, the confidants of his father who subsequently also became his warned him from too much action. King Ghazi had strong popularity within Iraq when he ascended the throne. Yet, he was only a very young man and had non of the political stamina and experience that his father had had. This made him vulnerable to the political currents within Iraq and especially the rising nationalist sentiment that was so strongly at odds with the British interests. Five months prior to the death of King Faisal there had also been the election of Rashid ‘Ali al-Gaylani as PM, Nuri al-Said......

1941: Iraq and the Illuminati and he began organizing new lodges. A former captain in the Ottoman Turkish army, Rashid Ali al-Qaylani, already a Golden Square member, abandoned his law practice to lead "the national revolution." On October 3, 1932, the new kingdom of Iraq attained its independence and joined the League of Nations. King Faisal had barely seated himself on the throne when the Golden Square struck. General Bakr Sidqi, like Rashid Ali, was a former Ottoman Turkish officer and longtime Golden Square member. In August 1933, he launched a pogrom against the Assyrian Christians, massacring thousands, over the protests of King Faisal. On September 3, 1933, Faisal died and was succeeded by his son Ghazi, who, unknown to the old man, was a "member of the secret brotherhood," the Golden Square. Ghazi ruled uneasily for three years, and then, on October 29, 1936, Bakr Sidqi decided to stop being polite and "overthrew the government in the Arab world's first military coup." But Bakr Sidqi was too friendly with the Ahali Socialist Party, so on August 11, 1937, he was assassinated by his "lodge brothers" of the Golden Square. "Six more (military) coups followed in quick succession," paving the way for the rise of Rashid Ali in 1940. During October 1932, the Golden Square received help from an unexpected source--the German mystics of the Thule Society. The new German ambassador to Baghdad, Fritz Grobe, was a long-time Thule member. (Editor's Note: A relative, Arthur......
