The Development of Cities in the U.S. During the Early 19th Century

In the early 1800s, the United States saw a period of great growth due to the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution was a move towards a new manufacturing process in America and increased the average income of the citizens and as well as the population of the country as a whole. After the War of 1812, America gained a newfound sense of nationalism, and cities began to prosper based on the products and services the city could produce.

Zulu Culture: An Overview of Practices and Development

Abstract

The Zulu remain one of Africa’s most influential and numerous ethnic groups, with their population mainly resident in South Africa, in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. Their rise from a relatively insignificant tribal grouping to a huge kingdom was largely as a result of the leadership of their 19th century king and military leader Shaka. As a leader, he was responsible for significant social and cultural changes. The influence of European religion and culture also played a part in changing the culture of the Zulus. This paper will examine how Shaka and Christianity combined in their different ways to produce the eclectic, interesting and robust culture which exists among the present members of this numerous African ethnic group.

Course Reflection:Employee Training and Development

Before taking the course, I used to think that management is an art but now I believe management is both science and an art. One thing that really struck me was the timeless nature of different theories as they are as practical today as they were decades ago. One reason may be that they are all flexible in nature and instead of providing an exact formula for effective management, the theories merely attempt to provide guidelines. This course has also taught me that the field of management science didn’t develop in isolation but instead borrows material from many other fields including psychology and sociology.

Introduction

This study is important to me because I intend to discover why Victimization and peer-directed gender are linked. For hypothesis of aggression that is gender linked, to be defined; I will give a description of sub segments of aggression in this paper. I have defined physical aggression as the behaviors that hold the motive of harming or hurting others acts that are physical and include pinching and pushing not forgetting verbal acts which comprise of threatening physical force. These, is mostly observed in boys. I have defines relation aggression as the motive to harm by posing a threat for damage of relationship, or the feeling of being accepted socially and include social groups. These, is viewed as more common in girls in middle and early childhood. In this study, I seek to examine a type of gender victimization that is gender balanced. The researchers who carry out their research on adolescents school-aged children specifically note the harsh female-female interactions that usually consist of victimization of relatives acts from friends, peers (Shaffer &  Kipp, 2010).
