How did the Kansas Nebraska Act increase Sectional Tension? 1. Nebraska was north of latitude 36o30’, and only States in that area could enter the Union as Free States. Therefore, Southern Politicians, who were not keen to Nebraska developed, made large efforts to delay granting territorial status to Nebraska. 2. Douglas was so keen to make Nebraska a territory, as it would needed the land to build a railroad through it. 3. Douglas proposed a bill to organize most of the remaining part of the Louisiana Purchase north of 360-30’ as the Nebraska Territory. 4. Sectional Politics made railway planning so controversial because the Southerners did not want to give Chicago a commercial advantage over Southern States like St. Louis, Memphis, Vicksburg, Natchez or New Orleans. 5. Douglas was motivated by the fact that he had twice failed to put forward a Nebraska bill that would win the votes of his Southern colleagues. In order to get the bill enacted, Douglas would need the support of the Southerners, who were only likely to vote if they felt they had a chance of expanding slavery in this area.

1. Douglas proposed the creation of two territories- Kansas, and Nebraska. Kansas was likely to become a slave state and Nebraska free. The bill also stipulated that the people of these territories, and not Congress would make the final decision on the future of slavery, through popular sovereignty. 2. Pierce accepted the proposition due to pressure from a delegation led by Douglas and Jefferson Davis. 3. Free-Soilers opposed the act so strongly as they believed it was a “gross violation of a sacred pledge, as a criminal betrayal of precious rights, as part and parcel of an atrocious plot”.…...

...emotional intelligence is very low. Emotional intelligence is the ability to be self aware (recognizing emotions), detect emotions in others and manage emotional que’s. Andrew just got in a huge fight with his employee and co-worker Susan. Andrew- Why is she so mad at me!!? Jake- Susan came to Andrew this morning to tell him a very important piece of information. Susan’s mom just passed away and she came to ask Andrew for the rest of the day off. All Andrew could think to say was, “As long as you finish all of your work, I could care less… Let’s see what ensued. Andrew- Why did Susan just quit? It’s not my fault her mommy just died. I swear she liked working here. What happened? Could it have been something I said?..... Nooooo…. Hmmm….. How can I figure out what would have been the best thing to say? I wonder what Steve Jobs would do. I wonder if there’s an app for that? INSERT AUDIO RECORDING Andrew- Sweet, Steve Jobs App!!!! So I see here that Steve Jobs had high self-awareness with regards to his strengths but not as much with his weaknesses. He had the ability to motivate other people to do things that they did not think were possible. Jobs inability to self-manage was seen in the people that worked under him who often described him as a tyrannical leader. His low self-awareness and inability to self- manage indicate that he was unable and unwilling to make any attempt to understand the feelings of others. Fear and anger were often a primary means of......

...Paper 8 As an American I find that most or our environments have become more pessimistic in nature rather then optimistic. This goes with many different experiences that I have had. I grew up in a home where my father worked in the local pipefitting union. He would pay so much out of every hour he worked and he would put that into a health package that would pay for older member’s health plans. A big issue that came up was the fact that many doctors were filling way to many prescriptions. Many times prescribing things that were not really a problem. Later in life my father relied on the same system when he started to have heart problems. These people are doing their jobs and are really doing it well. I feel that one of the main problems with American capitalism is the fact that people put so much focus on personal needs. The sense of if I can get more out of my neighbor I will have a better time in life. Or summed up with the known saying; keeping up with the Jefferson’s. This same type of feeling can be seen in how larger companies have turned to sourcing to fill their production means. Americans have felt drastic changes in our history. As people we have moved from agriculture, industry, to service based economies. From the start of the push of services we have lost a lot of jobs and gained a lot of jobs. But even now tech based service are being set up in other places as well. Moving to Eastern Europe and India. If this trend continues what will be the condition of...

Archie: Hmmm? Yes, quite. Well, I needed awayto poison her, so I began making flapjacks for her each day. She took them to work for lunch, and I could sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that I was slowly killing her. Dennis: Right... Archie: Well, this was four years ago, you see. I used very small amounts of toxin that would build up over the years, eventually leading to her death some time around now. Unfortunately, I didn’t find out until yesterday - during an argument even worse than the ones we normally have - that she has never liked my flapjacks. She has been giving them away each day to a work colleague. (Archie raises his eyebrows and looks at Dennis expectantly. A look of realization gradually appears on Dennis’s......

The Golden age was more like a baby boom in comic books. Tones of comics are being produced for the men at war,people all over, which trippled in sales making millions. All comes to and end when the war ends. Super heros "die" when the war ends. In the 1950′s the industry was under attack. Parents of America didn't think the comics were up to standards for children.

...The Effects of EGCG on Cancer Cells Cell Biology Background Green tea is a very common household beverage and lately it has been the center of research for the fight against cancer. This research, if found to be successful, could be ground breaking for the way our doctors treat patients with cancer. To begin with, researchers have designed techniques that allow them to study cancer stem cells and their progression with and without chemicals. A chemical found in green tea called epigallocatechin gallate or (EGCG) has been found to inhibit cell growth in cancer stem cells. Researchers have found that many intracellular pathways that are vital to the cancer cells growth are inhibited when in the presence of EGCG. Studies show that when cancer stem cells are incubated over time and they are treated with EGCG there is a significant response to the chemical showing the inhibitory effects toward the cells. As stated, “[i]n vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated that EGCG affect a wide array of molecular pathways, resulting in inhibition of cell growth, invasion, angiogenesis, and metastasis [Tang, 1].” The inhibition of cell growth keeps the cancer cell ultimately from growing and regenerating. Green tea has gained its attention by researchers because it is used in just about every household around the globe. It has been used for herbal remedies for thousands of years and it’s shown to have great affects when used in dieting. “The most active constituents of green......

The judge begins to call cases. Carl wonders what he should do. He watches the attorneys and sees that as each case is called, the attorney either announces that the matter is uncontested, in which case the judge signs the order presented by the attorney, or says “To be heard,” in which case the judge just nods and calls the next case. Carl also notices some very young attorneys who stand up and identify themselves as “so-and-so for Attorney Jones” or “so-and-so for Attorney Smith.” Clearly, they’re appearing on behalf of a senior attorney. Hmmm, thinks Carl. Since our matter is contested, Attorney Howe would simply say, “To be heard.” Finally, the judge calls Jane’s case. Attorney Howe hasn’t arrived.

I remember watching the screen and seeing buildings fall into dust. I remember hearing fellow Americans talk about the Muslims and terrorists and how disgusted they were by their plane plan. I remember the tragedy. I don’t remember feeling has much hate towards them. But as I grew up I became educated on the whole scene as I still hear others talk about it today. But one thing I do not understand about this whole “war” is why we continue to purchase expensive gas from our “rivals.” We pay them so we can get around, and that money goes to their ammunition against us and to their government which we continually fight. So what is the solution to this problem? Our cars need gas? The solution is mass transit. The gas prices are ridiculous, as many of us would agree. Us Americans seem to pay more and more for gas every day. While our nation pays twelve trillion dollars on gasoline every year. With all this useless wasted money we practically are paying our rivals who we are at war with. This is quite sad as they charge us an “arm and a leg” and we compliantly pay in order for us to get around town and to conduct business nationwide.

Adalah maklum bahawa manusia menginginkan kebaikan bagi dirinya, keluarganya dan terhindar dari kejahatan orang lain, baik itu secara langsung dalam bentuk jenayah, ataupun secara tidak langsung dengan perilaku-perilaku buruk yang boleh berjangkit kepada orang. Perilaku-perilaku buruk, kejahatan dan menyakiti, jika diteliti dengan saksama, hanya muncul dari beberapa orang saja dalam sebuah masyarakat. Untuk menjaga kestabilan sebuah masyarakat, keselamatan jiwa dan harta orang banyak, maka diperlukan suatu peraturan yang boleh menghalang sedikit orang ini untuk melakukan tindakannya.
