Do you agree that some of the Nobel Prize decisions are controversial? Which ones of them make you doubt the most?
The Nobel Peace Prize is the most controversial prize on earth (Susannah Locke, 2015). The most recent and likely the most controversial Nobel Peace Prize was given to President Barack Obama in 2009.

Unlike most other traditional societies, the Powhatan community was eccentric given that it was matrilineal in nature. In other words, women of Powhatan had more significant roles than men contrary to what was happening in other communities.

A. Research Problem
Despite Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) being identified as a complex, multidimensional condition requiring multiple treatment approaches, nutritional management is one approach that has been largely ignored. Multiple researches recognize that foods such as refined sugars, food additives, and fatty acids can be directly linked to ADHD. Additional evidence indicates that, individuals with ADHD tend to be exhibit more problems when put on certain diets. This can be construed to imply that, foods rich in selected nutritional components negatively affect the behavior patterns of individuals with ADHD. The research offers an in-depth analysis of the importance of nutritional adjustments and diet modifications in managing ADHD. (more…)
Is photography a reflection of reality or an escape from it?
This is a proposal of research seeking to look at the specific art of photographic evidence with consideration to its remarkable, intellectual, and societal origins and the interrelations. The issue here is how images in various circumstances express particular aspiration and representational aims, not just in terms of their substance and iconography but also by means of the official and visual production of evidence. This is where our study concern commences: the aim is carry out case studies to offer new, theoretically and practically safe establishments for the broader consideration and scrutiny of pictographic evidence left by past records, humanity, and political principles (Miles, 2005). The academic study of visual imagery and culture is greatly influenced by a scarcely reconcilable resistance. While, on one side of the split, the arty evidence of the picture is unnoticed, in effect denying the reflection of its actual meaning and visual traits, on the other side it is considered to be complete, and as a result separated from its diverse chronological, societal, and intellectual orientations to extra-pictorial facts.

Public School Education Decline in America
The reasons of the public education school decline in America are linked with the very nature of the neoliberalism in the United States. State supports competition, i.e. private schools are hugely motivated to invent superior academic programs in comparison to public schools. Owner of a private school competes a public one, so he or she aims at enticing the best students from wealth families, rather than from, not rich ones. It is quite clear that private school can easily have better funding than the public one. Private school often has a religious affiliation. Students are additionally motivated by a specific religion. Motivation is very essential for the young people. If they are deprived of that, there is a huge problem. On one hand, students study academic program, which contains a set of educational disciplines, which are required for educational standard. On the other hand, they are guided by a particular philosophy and ideology. (more…)
Introduction and Background
Financial management has a lot to do with decision-making. Several decisions have to be made in different levels and phases of investment, corporate financing, asset management, and apportionment of dividends. Investment decisions are mainly centered on three areas namely opening of new ventures, expansion of existing business ventures, and replacement of existing machinery or introduction of new technology. Investment decisions are succeeded by financing decisions. The underlying question that this paper seeks to answer is whether there is a link between the profitability and the leverage of firms, in particular investigating the extent to which leverage affects the performance of the firm. It has been established that the separation between firm ownership, control of the firm, and the ensuing agency costs has lately become a thorny issue in corporate governance. (more…)

Based on the information provided by the Pacific Island Regional Climate Assessment (PIRCA), there are several changes in climate conditions, which highlight the effect of global warming. (more…)
Role and Actions of the International Community During Genocide in Rwanda
Genocide is the unlawful act of destruction wholly or part of a certain religion, nation, or an ethnic group in a much deliberate or intended manner. The ultimate goal is to finish the members of the target religion, nation, or ethnic group by way of mass killing and other forms of property mass destruction (Chalk & Kurt, 1990, p87).
The Rwandan Genocide broke up from the two major ethnic groups in the country in April 1994, after several years of continued conflict between the two groups. The Hutus and the Tutsi developed different economic, political, and social perspectives in 1992, following a division spearheaded by then president, Habyarimana who was a Hutu. After a constant period of conflict, the Tutsi shot down president Habyarimana while he was travelling in his plane 1994. The two groups spontaneously lost the sense of humanity and decided to start the war. (more…)

In the article Hearsay: the road to reform (Murphy), the author P. Murphy outlines the development of the hearsay rule and challenges the proposed reforms.
The non-conservative nature of this article is overwhelming. The author does not oppose new reforms to the general rule against hearsay, but rather the arm of government which should be mandated with the making of such reforms and the caution to be exercised when coming up with such reforms. He reviews the history of the hearsay rule and assesses arguments for reform.
The article suggests that the hearsay rule has not always been static. It has changed over time. It is a common law rule; it was developed by the judges in the English courts. (more…)
