Criminal Behavior In Teenagers.

Criminal Behaviors in Late Adolescence The challenge in behavior developmental psychology is to categorically illustrate the time when a person starts to process information like adults with mature brain. The legislative body of 21 states in America has passed the law to allow the capital punishment to the teenagers who commit a murder or the equivalent crime by the age of 18. Psychologists argue that adolescence age of a person is less mature and the person in early twenties or late adolescence cannot construct his decisions maturely in accordance with the punishment associated with consequences. The decision making ability does not mature before the age of 25 and the lack of ability to comprehend the consequences associated with an action lead to committing violent crimes and immature decisions are made. That is why teenagers and juveniles must be considered less guilty for their criminal or unethical behaviors [Wade, C]. The mind of Lee Malvo, age 18, is undergoing developmental phase and he cannot formulate his decisions maturely. His mental ability to foresee the punishment associated with killing ten people in Washington, D.C. is very inefficient which suggests that Lee Malvo could not be considered full guilty for his crime. Juveniles like Lee Malvo must be accountable to a different judgmental and court system than the one installed in US for normal adult citizens and must not be granted capital punishment or life sentence for taking part in these brutal killings. The reason is quite clear from their mental immaturity and inability to critical decision making [Wade, C]. References Wade, C. Psychology, 8/e. Chapter 14. Development Over the brain.

Coping With Terrorism.

Coping with Terrorism American Progress in the War against Terror As far as the terrorism in America is concerned, US authorities have definitely succeeded in decreasing the rate of terrorism attacks because after the attacks of 9/11, the US war on terrorism has eliminated the chances of allowing any extremist foreign militants to enter the States with the will of destruction. The overlook of the international events and intervention of America in other countries especially middle East and Sub-continent with the intentions of fighting against terrorism collectively seem to fail primarily. Since the American War against Terrorism in Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, Syria and Afghanistan, The hatred for America in the hearts of local people because of innocent killings caused due to drone attacks and anti-religious policies with stereotyping mindsets against local people has raised. Jihadi extremist wings dilute from one title and join to form newer and larger extremist organizations. The suicide attacks in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq are increasing because of the revenge-oriented point of view in the people against America. Legislative and law enforcement in Middle East and Sub-continent countries believe that Americans authorities must withdraw their war in other countries and focus on the security infrastructure in USA more keenly. Origin of ISIS The American Invasion of Iraq in 2003 gave roots to the creation of Islamic State (ISIS) which is highly funded and strategically controlled group of militants whose purpose is to formulate a Sunni-Muslim Caliphate governmental system in the Middle East and to destroy the democratic forces especially American allies. The founder of ISIS was Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi who, after fighting Jihad in Afghanistan against Soviet Union in early eighties, reached Iraq to strengthen the power of Sunni-Muslims and with the intentions of carrying out violent action against Shia community.

Conversation With A Homeless.

Conversation with a homeless Human Attitudes, Behaviors and Perceptions are shaped by the environmental and social experiences. Apart from learning in the environment, genetic and biological factors also primarily control the personality traits within individuals. Human nature promotes the sense of communicating with each other to share information and mental thoughts with each other to live in harmony and to help in evolution of human race. Considering the importance of conversation, I experienced a meeting with a homeless person who perceived the worldview on various subjects differently from me which taught me many lessons about diversification in values, beliefs and human attributes. Similarities in Experiences After introductory formalities and investigation of upbringing background of the homeless, I shifted to explore personally experienced events, beliefs, and various ideologies about life of the person in a friendly manner. The homeless I met had faced very difficult situations from the early childhood. When he was about 8 years old, his parents died in a car accident leaving behind a very high amount of debt and mortgage which caused him to leave his own house and so, he took social support from shelter houses. The homeless had survived in extreme economic downfalls. During all these years, he had learned to respect human relationships over commercialism and money. He believed that family and friends should be of the prime importance to everybody and we all should strive to maintain a balance between professional and personal lives. He told me that he value human relationships over money because enough food to eat, a house to live and peace of mind are three main objectives a man must achieve because increased economic conditions come with increased desires and wishes. During my early childhood years, I had to go away from home into a boarding school and I...

Birdman Illustrates The Story Of An Actor Who Had Been Globally Famous In The Early Years .

Birdman – A Movie Summary Birdman illustrates the story of an actor who had been globally famous in the early years of his career when he played the role of Birdman, a super hero, which was critically acclaimed and accepted by movie audience and critics. The actor, Riggin, is substantially insecure about his public image and career decay as his youth starts to vanish and his physical and analytical strengths appear to be older in age and performance. Riggin develops a philosophical play adapted from the story of Raymond Carver about absoluteness in love to regain his fame and legacy that he thought had been materialistically lost since his incalculable loss in the character of Birdman. The psychological factors of regret and social unacceptability tend to have substantial impacts on his subconscious and movie shows the visuals of Riggin Thomson talking to himself or flying in the air as the Birdman. In the course of struggle to prestige and immortality in his acting passage, Riggin recruits an actor, Mike Shiner, to act in his play but the catastrophic behavior of Shiner on stage during initial previews further extends the stress and anxiety in Riggin whose only way to get mental rest is through acclaim. The increasing visions of Birdman and lust for fame tend to overshadow his care for his daughter who works as his assistant in the theater and she takes rehab sessions and dope to pass her overthinking about incomplete and hollow care by his father about her. Drowned in the intoxication of acclaim, Riggin does not respond to the love Griffin Murray carries for him who assists him in theater operations. All the characters in the movie significantly and discreetly outline the relevance of deprivation and portray a directive about regret in routine engagements of human life....

American War Of 1812.

American War of 1812 The War of 1812 was fought between Britain and America when Britain was busy fighting against France and they thought that the trade with Americans at the same time will bring down their war budget against France and it would be problematic for their planned colonial rule in India which failed later in 1947. More than 10,000 American natives allied with British troops and fought against America [War of 1812 (2014)]. The local inhabitants settled in North America fought against Americans to protect their lands and tribal families from any invasion. Leaders of local tribes including Shawnee, Potawatomi and Ojibwa stood up to fight for their rights because they were considering this war to be about territorial ranges and colonial rules which would later be expanded into Indian lands. After the war was over, Native Americans living in tribes lost their identity forever and their identification was totally challenged by calling them European American [Donald Fixico (2014)]. The White House was burned down during the war which minimized the American morale very deeply. Americans had won the war of New Orleans and Battle of Baltimore but inability to save their national pride from burning down had been a great conflict and reason of loss in war and compelling to sign a treaty with England on December 1814 [War of 1812 (2014)]. Americans could not achieve desired goals from this war due to feeble and immature people who were in their early evolutionary phase and never ready for a major war. Federalists and some Republicans opposed the war openly. This conflict caused a lesser motivation and nationalist approach in people due to which a very small amount of people raised hands to fight and even lesser amount of war money was collected as compared to the needs...
