Western Civilization from earliest times to 1400

You are to write a 5-7-page research paper about some topic from any period we will cover (something you would like to see in a museum, perhaps). You could look at food, dress, the development of theater, art, music. I will ask you to get me a short proposal (it need not be a formatted document). You will need to consult books and articles (not encyclopedia articles) in or through the library (so database articles are good)—no web sources (no wiki, no random web page put up by someone who dreams of western civilization—if you aren’t sure, ask me). Wiki is a place to start (and a good place for images), but a bad place to stop. I will ask for a rough draft (so I can check….

Consider Schmidt v. Germany, 291-B Eur. Ct. H.R. (ser. A) (1994)

Consider Schmidt v. Germany, 291-B Eur. Ct. H.R. (ser. A) (1994). A German law required all male residents – but not female residents – of Tettnang, Germany, to either volunteer to work for the firemen or to pay a fee in contribution to the firemen. The male applicant challenged the fire-service levy as unlawful gender discrimination in violation of Article 14, ECHR. Howerver, Article 4(3)(d), ECHR, allows an exception to the prohibition against compulsory labor for normal civic obligations to ECHR states parties. The compulsory fire service in Schmidt’s town fell within this exception. The alternative financial contribution was considered a “compensatory charge” and because of its close links with the obligation to serve, also fell within the scope of Article 4(3)(d). The European Court stated that very….

Under U.S. constitutional law, a “heightened rational basis” test is used in the context of gender discrimination: the classification must serve “important” governmental objectives, and the discriminatory means employed must be “substantially related” to the achievement of these ends.

Under U.S. constitutional law, a “heightened rational basis” test is used in the context of gender discrimination: the classification must serve “important” governmental objectives, and the discriminatory means employed must be “substantially related” to the achievement of these ends. Mississippi University for Women v. Hogan, 458 U.S. 718 (1982); see also United States v. Virginia, 116 S.Ct. 2264 (1996) (gender discrimination unconstitutional in absence of “exceedingly persuasive justification”).

Under U.S. federal statutory law, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex by employers. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 extended the definition of sex to include pregnancy. International Union, UAW v. Johnson Controls, 499 U.S. 187 (1991). Refusal to hire on these grounds as well as harassment and hostile working….

Accounting can be dated back to more than 3000 years ago when the Egyptians ruled, they developed a method to manage and monitor the taxation of crops

Accounting can be dated back to more than 3000 years ago when the Egyptians ruled, they developed a method to manage and monitor the taxation of crops. Civilizations after Egypt and during the Industrial Revolution, took these accounting principles and expanded upon it. They made major steps towards cost accounting which documented salaries, cost expenses, and other expenses which were recorded separately (Stefan et al., 2018). Between the 1950’s and 1980’s, managerial accounting began to take on roles in planning and control practices (Stefan et al., 2018). Since that time, accounting has evolved as complexities in businesses have evolved. Managerial accounting originally was concerned solely with the matter of cost but has now expanded into a much more diverse field focused on future events. The push that helped….
