Question: SORRY THIS IS LONG BUT PLEASE CONTINUE READING!:) So i have to write a paper...3 pages...about some example of obedience to authority that we see in our society. My professor told us we can do it on anything so thats where I'm having slight difficulty thinking of a topic. i really want something creative and something i could focus deep on. One example he gave us was the authority that a uniform possesses. So a doctor wears that white coat and automatically has such authority over others. We believe they are smarter than us and we obey them without hesitation. Umm another example he used was corporate america and how its run by white males. He was discussing how they have authority over women in the business world and stuff like that. BOTTOM LINE I REALLY NEED A GOOD TOPIC TO IMPRESS HIM!! THANK YOU SOO MUCH! OH he also talked about the milgram experiment and how poeple automatically obeyed the person telling them to shock the person all because they were told to do by someone they believed had more authority. And IM NOT ASKING FOR ANYONE TO DO MY HOMEWORK. I AM SIMPLY ASKING FOR HELP BECAUSE IM STUCK AT THE MOMENT. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT SO TAKE YOUR RUDE COMMENTS ELSEWHERE. OTHER THAN THAT, I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL OF YOU THAT ARE TAKING THE TIME TO HELP ME:)

I would recommend dong it on titles, in general. Not only doctors, but many assume that lawyers have actual legal authority, which they have none. We see how the context of a relationship changes and the ring is put on their fingers defining their relationship as being husband and wife. Often their is an added sense or obligation of control or submissive behaviors associated with the act of getting married.

Absolutely. To support their personal bigotries, many Christians will say 'God' is the same today as back in time, that 'God' never changes. When it's inconvenient for them to follow 'God's' unchanging law, they say, oh, that was a custom of the time, not a real law -- or oh, Jesus came along, which did away with that law. According to Jesus's faith (Judaism) the messiah was supposed to honor the laws, not alter them. If he changed the law, he would not have been the messiah. "The Messiah will lead the Jewish people to full Torah observance. The Torah states that all mitzvot (commandments) remain binding forever, and anyone coming to change the Torah is immediately identified as a false prophet. (Deut. 13:1-4)" From http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/j...

If you're looking for a religious example, you could go with Jim Jones and the Jonestown cult. A man that talked hundreds of people into taking their own lives might be a chilling, even morbid example of obedience to authority, but it's a significant one.

I think the simpler solution is use the example of military authority. As someone told me long time ago if you don't know how to obey orders you'll never know how to command. You can take it from there... good luck!

You could try the concept of obeying your professor to write this paper or how we obey our bosses, parents, older siblings.

Look up the Milgram experiment...that should be deep enough for you. And you should be able to get three pages easy. lol Oops...well here this should help too. http://www.ted.com/talks/dan_ariely_on_o...

With lazy-azz "students" like this, it's no wonder that American employers are outsourcing everything.

Hasshub Originally Answered: Can I Show a mixed breed in obedience/agility/hunting trials?
You can show a mixed breed in a lot of agility venues - my personal choice is USDAA. A word of caution: it is a physically intense sport and a puppy should not start training in a regular agility class until it's bones/joints mature. UKC allows mixed breeds to show at obedience trials. However, they do require jumping in the trial - and this should not be done until the puppy matures into an adult. UKC/HRC allows all breeds and mixed breeds in their hunt tests. FYI - there is a lot of discussion going on within AKC to develop a mixed breed program. It might just happen soon. To the person who said to ILP (now re-named PAL). I disagree - you cannot ILP/PAL a mixed breed. It is an AKC program ONLY for purebred AKC breeds with unknown/un- "papered" parentage. You must submit pictures and your vet must sign a statement of their opinion that your dog is a purebred of the breed you say it is. The ILP/PAL purebred can compete in any event offered to their papered counterparts except conformation. Lastly -you might also think about trying other events. Flyball once your dog is old enough to safely train in it. The flyball organizations allow mixed breeds. Tracking is fun if you are the outdoorsy type. ASCA (Aust. Sheepdog club) allows all breeds & mixes to compete.
