Racism is such a big topic in our world it has always been a big problem, but as time progressed it has become worse with different cases of Hispanic families being separated at the border and children being thrown in Ã¢â¬Å"cagesÃ¢â¬ and treated like animals. Young African American kids are getting shot for being wrongfully perceived as having a weapon. Police officers are just shooting first and asking questions later. Society is being filled with so many negative situations that a lot of people put off and do not deal with or address because we are all divided. It is such a sensitive topic because it is happening to certain races and it seems like they are being targeted. Racial profiling and racism is a common issue in minority families. There are so many stories over the years of people getting wrongfully shot for supposedly having a gun when in reality they did not have nothing, and most they obeyed the police but still lost their lives. False gun identification should not be taken lightly because the police are killing African American teens are getting away with a light sentence or even having no jail time. In The Atlantic an article written by Olga Khazan she states that, Ã¢â¬Å" In a year, over 57,375 people lost their life to police violenceÃ¢â¬ (Khazan 1). In just a year so many people have died due to police shootings, that is including all the races. Police are starting to have a bad reputation because of the way they do their job. Such as shooting first and asking questions later which causes pain and heart break from the families that have lost a loved one from false accusations. Khazan states that African American males are more likely to get shot by police officers. She states, Ã¢â¬Å"According to se veral different studies, black men aged 15Ã¢â¬â34 are between nine and 16 times more likely to be killed by police than other people. In 2017, police killed 19 unarmed black males, down from 36 in 2015, according to The Washington PostÃ¢â¬ ( Khazan 2). This estimate is from 2017, imagine when 2018 is over and they would have done all the statistics for it. Most of the police that are shooting first and thinking later are getting little to no time in jail due to either the judge or the jury just not finding them guilty of their crime. We should be taking different precautions when it comes to arresting and shooting someone because they think they have a weapon. There are so many stories of wrongful deaths with police officers. When will people realize things should change? We should be figuring out solutions for this ongoing problem such as, going straight to your taser instead of going straight to your gun. Taser is a safer option and people would come out alive. In a recent event at a mall in Alabama there was a mall shooting. The night of Thanksgiving 2018 Semantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr an African American man was wrongfully shot by the police in the mall on the night of thanksgiving 2018. For being thought of as the active shooter for having a gun. An 18 year old boy and 12 year old girl were also shot due to the real gun man shooting them. In an article, Black Man Killed by Officer in Alabama Mall Shooting Was not the Gunman, Police Now Say by Mihir Zaveri went into detail on this tragic event. He stated, Ã¢â¬Å" the police said uniformed officers who were providing security at the mall Ã¢â¬Å"encountered a suspect brandishing a pistol and shot him. It was not clear whether the officers believed Mr. Bradford fired or intended to fire before he was killedÃ¢â¬ ( Zaveri 1). They did not even ask him to put the weapon down or put his hands up. It seems the police forgot the rights of a citizen, they are supposed to be saying. Where are th e head people that are incharge of the police because they need to be written up. Another source from a book, The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas based on a true story. Talks about a young African American girl and her best friend getting pulled over by a police officer and the cop makes him get out of the car and as the cop walks back to the car the boy reaches into the car to grab a brush as the girl is telling him not to. Then he gets shot right as he goes to brush his hair. He was claimed to have had a gun. Ã¢â¬Å"When I was twelve, my parents had two talks with me. One was the usual birds and beesThe other talk was about what to do if a cop stopped me. Ã¢â¬ ¦ Ã¢â¬Å"Starr-Starr, you do whatever they tell you to do, he said. Keep your hands visible. Dont make any sudden moves. Only speak when they speak to you. ( Thomas 20). At twelve years old she had a talk about what to do if a cop stopped her because of the color of her skin. She had to start being fearful from the age twelve . At the age of twelve she learned how to try to keep herself safe around a cop because if she did not learn she could get hurt. Migrant people are struggling to stay alive in their country so they come to America to seek safety and hope, but in return they get separated from their children and tear gas thrown at them like animals. An article in the NBC News called San Diego Border Crossing Shut Down After Migrants Try To Enter The U.S. by Annie Rose Ramos and Tim Stelloh. They talk about the San Diego border being shut down due to migrants trying to cross the border and it getting out of hand. They state, Ã¢â¬Å"Customs and Border Protection said in a statement that it used tear gas and pepper spray after several migrants threw rocks at border agents, striking themÃ¢â¬ (Ramos and Stelloh 5). Border agents felt the need to bring tear gas in and start throwing it because they got hit with things. Adults could not handle things being thrown at them so they decided to tear gas and pepper spray families with children and elders in wheelchairs. Another article by Jorge Ramos, Children in Cages, a Symbol of Trump Ã¢â¬â¢s America , talks about how migrant children are locked up in cages after being separated from their families at the border. The article also states, Ã¢â¬Å"Trump has already backed away from this cruel directive, which was carried out at the southern border during the first weeks of his administrationÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Å"zero toleranceÃ¢â¬ immigration policy, but most of the 2,300 children taken from their families, most of whom come from Central American nations, have not yet been returned to their parentsÃ¢â¬ ( Ramos 1). Trump is not building a good name for himself as every opportunity he has to help America improve he just ruins it and brings us lower. This kids that have done nothing wrong are being harassed and thrown into metal cages with water chips and a aluminum blanket with around 20 other different kids. If a parent was to do this it would be considered child abuse, but the government is doing this. In a video with a migrant mother trying to seek asylum at th e border got denied and had to seek asylum in Mexico. She was running away from a gang in El Salvador that tried to kill her son. She traveled 3,000 miles through 3 different countries. In the video she said, Ã¢â¬Å" We dont want to be deported, we want to workÃ¢â¬ ( Reyes). They want to start a better life for their families people claim they steal our jobs but they take the jobs that people do not want to do. If people want jobs they should get off their high horse and take those jobs then. They are hard working people and are coming here to start something new for their lives and their childrens lives. Racism is such a big part of our world and it seems like its so hard for people to get past it. It usually has to do with generations of families teaching it to each other. Around the world a lot of minorities face obstacles just because of the color of the skin. No matter what color or race you are we all discriminate and if we do not stop thinking like this our world will be more divided as time goes on. African American and Hispanic people face struggles everyday with dealing with racism these cases stated in this essay is what is going on right now in the world. Our world is never gonna heal from this is we do not start fixing this.

Athletes from the Ivy League January 20, 2012 What makes athletes from the Ivy League different from athletes from, say, the ACC, Big East, or SCC? Well, for one, Ivy League athletes dont earn scholarships. They also have to meet certain admissions criteria (see our post on the Ivy League Academic Index) and they tend to be student-athletes more so than athletes who happen to also go to school. One great example of such an athlete is Andrew Goldstein, a graduate of Dartmouth College, where he played goalie on the lacrosse team and earned two honorable mention All-American nods. Ivy League athletes like Andrew Goldstein are true examples of student-athletes with an emphasis on the student. Andrew Goldstein is regarded as the first male professional team sport athlete in North America to be openly gay during his playing career. Goldstein played for two seasons of Major League Lacrosse first with the Boston Cannons and then with the Long Island Lizards. Goldstein was openly gay at Dartmouth as this SportsCenter piece points out, a piece we at Ivy Coach happened to have a whole lot to do with. Since leaving lacrosse, Goldstein has become an outspoken advocate of not saying gay in a derogatory way in locker rooms. Hes also become a biology professor at UCLA and made a notable publication in the prestigious Science magazine by leading a team of researchers that found the possible cell of origin for prostate cancer. Wow. Now that is an Ivy League athlete for you! Want to read more? Check out this piece on ESPN about the Ivy League athlete or this one on the historic nature of Goldsteins example as an openly gay athlete.

Assignment 2: Human Development There are seven stages a human moves through during his or her life span. These stages include infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence, early adulthood, middle adulthood and old age. Infancy is recognized as the stage of life from a human s birth up until he or she learns how to speak: generally until the age of one or two. During this stage, the child transitions from a dependent toddler to a relatively active child; he or she is typically able to crawl, roll over and walk. In terms of physical development, the stage of infancy witnesses the most growth. Also during infancy the child gains a sense of trust when its caregivers provide affection and reliability, a lack of suchÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Early adulthood is the point in a human s life where he or she is able to establish intimate relationships as well as friendships. Studies suggest that one is not fully developmentally complete without the formation of intimate relationships, for without them a person would become isolated and develop a fear of commitment, and likely, a mistrust in other people. To be able to form such intimate relationships one must have appropriately progressed through the ear lier stages of life successfully. The stage that follows early adulthood is known as middle adulthood where people are generally caught between being productive and being stagnant. This stage reflects the need to create a living legacy: they would either need to feel they have become an important figure for the next generation to follow or they would develop a sense of purposelessness which is generally known as a Ã¢â¬Å"mid-life crisisÃ¢â¬ . This crisis can be solved by having the adults care and nurture children or help the fore-coming generation in other ways or means, however if the crisis remains the person would persist in random non-age-appropriate behavior as well as a continued feeling in stagnation. During this stage adults lose some of their physical aspects as their muscular strength, ability and agility weakens.

Down Syndrome: What Impact Does It Have on Children? Down syndrome Ã¢â¬Å"is one of the most common genetic conditionsÃ¢â¬ , which is caused when there is a Ã¢â¬Å"sporadic mutation that results in an extra chromosome 21Ã¢â¬ (Hobson-Rohrer, Samson-Fang, 2013). Each person is born with 46 chromosomes, one set of 23 from each parent, but a person with down syndrome has a total of 47 chromosomes because they have an extra chromosome 21. Ã¢â¬Å"The extra chromosome disrupts the normal course of development and results in the physical features and intellectual and developmental disabilities associated with the syndromeÃ¢â¬ (Down Syndrome). Ã¢â¬Å"The extra 21st chromosome cause biochemical changes that redirect brain developmentÃ¢â¬ (McDevitt Ormrod, 2013). Although Down Syndrome is one of the more common genetic conditions, the chance of a child being born with this disease is 1 in 691. This statistic decreases the older a woman is when she becomes pregnant. For women b etween the ages of 35-39 yearsÃ¢â¬â¢ old, the chance of having a child with Down syndrome is 1 in 270 (Hobson-Rohrer, Samson-Fang, 2013).

Question: Discuss about the Real Time Computer System For A Passenger Plane. Answer: Requirements of the organization: The passenger plane must use mainframe computers, as the mainframe computers are highly reliable. The mainframe computers are fast as the computer consists of large number of CPU, which powers the more processing power. These types of computers uses high memory, so that the entire system can be backup if any system crash is happen. Some safety measurements needs to be addressed on the computers that in case of any emergency, the passengers can communicate over the air with the nearest airport or they can send some emergency message by on click action using the computer. Robustness of the computer depends on the reliability, serviceability and on the availability measurement (Giselsson 2013). An investment is not an issue in the implementation of the real time computer system in the passenger plane. More the money spends more high will be the hardware and software features quality. the mainframe computers has the ability of time sharing that is in real time many people can use the mac hines simultaneously with high efficiency. The performances of the mainframe computers is high because this computer share the workload with the different processors and some devices, it also increases the processing ability of the computer that can be helpful for the computer system in the passenger plane. Type of the computer system proposed: The type of the computer system that is going to apply in the passenger plane must have some certain capabilities. The computer system must consist of a real time system, which can control the aircraft by itself. To control the flight by the computer system, an aircraft control system is going to be applied in the computer system. The computer system must consist of some subsystems that can control the mechanical system as well as the aerodynamics. An autopilot is a flight control system that allows the airplane to fly without the pilot (Kastner and Looye 2013). The pilot needs to set the mode they want in the autopilot either heading hold mode or altitude hold mode. The computer system must consists of a communication system by which the pilots can communicate with the co plot and the craft crew as well as the pilots can communicate with the air station via radio frequency. The computer system for the passenger also needs a communication system so that they can anytime communicate w ith the aircraft crew if the passenger needs any kind of help. The communication system can help in the emergency any people can send emergency message to the nearest aerostation possible so in the emergency to get any kind of help where time matters most (Khan, Tahir and Khan 2015). An entertainment system for the passenger is also needs to be implemented in the computer system as the passenger can get entertainment on their journey (Wolf, Minzlaff and Moser 2014). These all features enhance the aircraft and the main thing is the computer system by which these systems can be controlled and served for the passengers. Implementing this kind of aircraft needed huge investment so the updated system can be use to make the computer system on the passenger airplane. References: Giselsson, P., 2013, June.
