American Military History

American Military History After the civil war, there was the need to spearhead reconstruction and preach unity between the union and the confederate states. As a result, the military was widely used in the attempt to reconstruct the fallen nation after suffering heavy casualties in terms of manpower and material. The north which had defeated the South in the civil war saw the need to use the military to control the expansionist settlers and Indians who wanted to retain their land and ways of life.

American Military History-HY 2000

American Military History-HY 2000 The American civil war is one of the events that completely changed the American history forever.   The war took place between 1861 and 1865 and it is remembered as one of the wars that resulted in heavy casualties regarding materials and manpower in the form of soldiers. The war was between the northern states widely known as the Union, and the southern states are widely known as the Confederate States of America.

Ethical Principles       

    Ethical Principles Christians in every corner of the world are known to use biblical exegesis, rational analysis and argument to justify their actions and way of doing things. Theologians use texts from the Old Testament and the New Testament to guide them in all their doings.  Theology in most cases deals with faith, practice, and experience. Moreover, these beliefs involve the study of God and Gods relation to the world. On the other hand, ethical principles, they are principles in human life that provide and promote important values and aspect of human life such as trust, good behavior, fairness, and kindness when followed to the letter.

Income Inequality -critical thinking

Income Inequality Footer notes Slide 2 Income inequality is a major concern globally. Income inequality is a measure of income distribution among a population. The measure assesses the gap between the rich and the poor by examining the income distribution among a population. In the last three decades, income inequality has grown remarkably in the United States. This means that the rich are becoming richer while the poor remain worse off.  Widening income gaps reflect diminishing income opportunities and mobility among the population. This is an indication that certain segments of the population are disadvantaged. High levels of income inequality in the economy may have severe consequences on the growth and development of the economy. Policymakers should implement income redistribution measures to ensure that the gap between the rich and the poor closes. Slide 3 High levels of income inequality may lead to large social costs.

Patterns of Irrational Decision Making

  Patterns of Irrational Decision Making Irrational decision-making affects individuals from time to time. Most often, individuals are unaware of the irrational decisions they make. As such, most of the irrational decisions stem from individuals’ subconscious thoughts, which then become actions. Irrational decisions pertain those decisions that individuals make that either harm the well-being of others or themselves. According to Paul & Elder (2013), there are four common patterns of irrational decision-making. These include: (i) when individuals behave in ways that undermine other people’s welfare, (ii) behaving in ways that undermine our own welfare, (iii) withdrawing from activities that may improve an individual’s long-term welfare, (iv) deciding to involve with individuals who influence one to act in a way that undermines their own welfare or that of others. An example of an occasion where I acted in accordance to one or more of the patterns of irrational decision-making is during my friend’s birthday party.
