What America Can Learn From Japan

After World War II, efforts became put in place to reconstruct the Japanese health infrastructure and public health system. The war had led to the breakdown of these systems. Housing, water plants, sewage system and equipment got destroyed extensively. Health resources became scarce and stretched. The atomic bomb also posed challenges through the unique physical and psychological effects it had created. Reconstruction of the healthcare system in Japan focused on modern, disease prevention and an awareness program. The awareness program got concerned with educating the public on hygiene and sanitation. Reforms got undertaken in medical education and reorganization of the hospital system (Niles, 2010). The diets of school children got introduced with powdered, skim milk. This method increased the protein and calcium intake improving the health of millions of school children. These reforms during reconstruction helped contribute to low infant mortality rates and growth in life expectancy among the Japanese population. http://www.highqua 2/10/what-can-amer ica-learn-from-jap an/  (Apr 2, 2013 | post #1)

Is home school education better than public school educat...

Whether studying at home has any influences compared to public school remains a questionable factor amongst many. Recent reports especially in the media suggest that many parents are now opting to educate their children are home rather than public school (Neal, 1994). In fact it is estimated that the number of children studying at home currently is increasing at an alarming rate. http://www.highqua 2/10/is-home-schoo l-education-better -than-public-schoo l-education-or-not -2/  (Nov 19, 2012 | post #1)

Immigrants & K-12 - Los Angeles, CA

The economic effects of immigration vary widely. However, most commentators and analysts argue that the net effects of immigration are arguably positive. The economist magazine has specifically advocated for immigration by saying, “loosening restrictions on the labor migration would be among the fastest ways to boost economic growth of any country.” They claim that in contrast to removal of trade barriers this is the most positive factor. http://www.highqua 2/02/immigration-d ebate/  (Nov 5, 2012 | post #541)

Is it our duty to die?

The idea that everyone has a duty to die may sound very cynical to many people. Many people find this very demeaning to entertain. However, this paper seeks to analyze various arguments by the philosopher John Hardwig and tries to express various arguments advanced by this philosopher. The paper evaluates the arguments put across and takes a position. His advancement of the duty to die has raised many hypothetical and metaphysical questions (Callahan, 1993). http://www.highqua 2/02/duty-to-die/  (Oct 4, 2012 | post #1)

Sexual correctness

Sexual correctness is a book written by Wendy McElroy. It is a book that analyses the anti pornography ordinances and movements in the United States. These anti pornography ordinances were a brainchild of McKinnon. She argues that pornography is an enemy of the women and made by men to oppress the women. She categorically states that it is a powerful tool of the men to continue their dominance over the women. In her book however, McElroy decides to argue against McKinnon’s premises and resolves against pornography. Her main argument against McKinnon and other anti pornography campaigners is that not all women are coerced into pornography but they rather involve themselves voluntarily. http://www.highqua 2/02/sexual-correc tness-2/  (Oct 4, 2012 | post #1)

Advertising Images and Women Bodies

Beauty is truly beauty when it is portrayed in the right sense. It gives the sense of aesthetic value and makes people really appreciate the value of beauty. This was until beauty took another higher notch, a derailing notch that portrays women as just being mere images of beauty. There has been an explosion of images of women portrayed as just queens of the supposed beauty. This is all in the quest to garner much profits need in the growth of the business. This culture seem to be trendy and explicit, however this gives women a sense of being unequivocal and complicit. http://www.highqua 2/02/advertising-i mages-and-women-bo dies-2/  (Oct 4, 2012 | post #1)

Meaning of a Hustler

In common English language a hustler is a person who sets his or her eyes at something and really aims at achieving it. He does what he has to do in order to achieve the set priorities. A hustler does not easily let go and uses everything at hand to obtain the results. In this regard, this essay seeks to discuss the meaning of a hustler, however from another source. It uses a section of Eminem lyrics „Without me? to try and define the meaning of a hustler in that regard. Notable is the fact that the meaning of a hustler differs from one society to another and its nature. http://www.highqua 2/02/meaning-of-a- hustler/  (Oct 4, 2012 | post #1)

Prove there's a god.

Is God Part of Integrity? The kingdom of God is regarded as one with utmost integrity, but whether that means that God is integral remains to be a point of discussion amongst philosophers and religionists. This paper therefore seeks to use logical reasoning, inductive and deductive reasoning to try to determine whether indeed God is part of Integrity. This is attributed to many factors. One of such factor is the fact that existence of God is a major issue http://www.highqua 2/09/is-god-part-o f-integrity/  (Oct 3, 2012 | post #545389)
