    It appears like Japan does not really care about the global ban on whales. It has been reported that Japan will continue their hunting of whales after a 365 day drought. Japan seems convinced about the idea that whales don't deserve to live. It has been announced that Japan will only do it, however, on a limited level and it will not be a full on whale killing spree. SO MANY DISAGREE WITH JAPAN KILLING WHALES There are many environmental groups and various governments that completely disagree with what Japan is doing. The UK and Australian governments spoke out about what Japan is doing and discussed their feelings about what Japan is doing and they were not very good. Many people do not see the need of killing these whales, but it just does not seem like Japan cares that much. It has been reported that Japan is already getting their whaling boats set and ready to sale. It is said that they will be back in the oceans in a week or two. Japan has went on record and explained how their killing of whales is merely scientific, but does that explain why they are reportedly getting eaten? This seems fishy, no pun intended, and it does not seem Japan is giving the full insight. WHY IS JAPAN ALLOWED TO KILL WHALES? The big question that needs to be asked is why on earth Japan can hunt whales? It is said that there is a global ban on whales, so how is Japan getting around this? It is possible that the ban has a statement for this, but it seems odd that Japan can be allowed to…

    I do agree with the Norwegian and Japanese position on permitting the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption. Many countries were founded on whaling including the United States. Whales provided a large resource of food, fuel and luxuries such as perfume. It is still a part of the United States ' culture as there are Native American tribes who still hunt to this day as part of their culture. If you take a moral stance against non-endangered whale hunting then you…

    whaling is sustainable. Whales can be thought of as a natural resource, similar to fish and wild game stocks. A country has the right to exploit the natural resources within their borders for any purpose they see fit, with an exemption for exploitation that would endanger another sovereign nation’s natural resources (UN, 1962). Any international attempts made to ban whaling that doesn’t endanger the natural resources of another country is therefore a violation of the sovereign rights of any…

    Critical theory is, in my opinion, best defined by Marx(1843), as the ‘self-clarification of struggles and wishes of the age’, a general applicable definition that does not take into consideration a specific historical time, place or political problem. In order to talk about critical theory and its genuinely critical features I believe it is essential to make a clear distinction between critical theories and scientific theories. According to Frankfurt School there are 3 main categories of…

    That conflicts will occur in the workplace is a given. Even though everyone comes together for a common purpose, different personality types and conflicts styles impact how and if those conflicts can be resolved. HealthAmerica is no exception. Clarinda Peterson and Kyle Brandon failed in adjusting for their different personalities, did not practice effective listening skills and could have utilized the PUGGS model of conflict management. Leveraging their differences rather than ignoring them…
