Constantine and The Church

One person that I believe played a large role in the shaping of history is Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus; better known as Constantine I or Constantine the Great. He was the Roman Emperor from 306 AD to 337 AD. Constantine is regarded as the first Christian Roman Emperor and had a great influence on the shaping of the Christian faith. Constantine's rule is largely viewed as a turning point for the faith; some believe a turn for the good but others a turn for the worse. Regardless of your opinion about the effects Constantine had on the Christian Church those effects can still be seen today.

The Letter of Eusebius of Caesarea to the People of his Diocese

This document was created by Eusebius of Caesarea and was presented to his congregation at the conclusion of the great Synod, the Council of Nicaea in A.D 325. The Council of Nicaea was called by the emperor Constantine I for the purpose of settling disagreements concerning the nature of Christ and to promote greater unity within the empire. The author, Eusebius, wrote the letter so that his congregation may know the truth concerning some of the matters that were discussed in the council; one in particular being the nature of Christ.

Sociological Perspectives on Poverty

It can be said that there is no greater threat to the world population than that of poverty. Poverty is the lack of basic human needs such as clean water, healthcare, nutrition education clothing and shelter because of an inability to afford them. This is also known as absolute poverty. According to Jean Zeigler, mortality due to malnutrition accounted for 58% of all deaths in 2006. One in twelve people in the world today are malnourished. We live in a time when a nation can fly a man to the moon but can't feed, cloth, and shelter its own people much less it's neighbors; all the while producing more food and resources than it needs. So if the money is there and the food is there why do people still go hungry? Conflict theory is a great explanation for this phenomenon. Conflict theory gives us a perspective that emphasizes the social, political, and material inequality of a group. Various conflict theories point out power differences like class conflict and usually go against a lot of widely believed ideologies.

Sociological Perspectives on Casino

Casino is a movie that was released in 1995 and was directed by Martin Scorsese. It is based on a book of the same name that was written by Nicholas Pileggi. Pileggi also co-wrote the screenplay for the movie along with Scorsese. This movie takes a look into the way that casinos operated in Las Vegas in the 70's, 80's. Because Casino is based on the life of Frank Rosenthal and reveals the influence that the Chicago Outfit crime family had on casino's in Las Vegas, there is much to be observed and learned in this film about deviance as it is understood from a sociological standpoint. If we view this film from the symbolic interactionist perspective we can see how deviance plays a role in the everyday life of the people portrayed in this movie and how belonging to particular groups influences our behaviors and the decisions that we make.

Today we have numerous reality television shows portraying a manifold of situations from dating, marriage, and living together to home decorating and even house flipping; not forgetting to mention the various game shows, competitions, and traveling that also tend to capture our attention. Why has this form of television programming become so popular among the masses? Since most people assume that this sort of television is unscripted we can assume that people take in some sort of values from Reality TV. But what exactly are the reasons that this form of programming has become a seemingly inseparable part of our society?
