For families in crisis, such as single mom and baby who were featured in the article from the American Public Welfare Association there are many resources available in Missouri. The Missouri Department of Social Services offers programs through Family-Centered Services. These services are provided to families and children when a “child abuse or neglect investigation or family assessment response finds that there is a preponderance of evidence or unsubstantiated-preventive services indicated or services needed.” (Missouri Department of Social Services 2008) There is a range of treatment including day care, family counseling, evaluation or diagnosis, homemaker services and respite care. Families can access these programs through referral following evaluation or through voluntary requisition. (Missouri Department of Social Services. 2008)

    Marketing is, fundamentally, an effort to change the way a person feels about a product and engender a desire to change one’s purchasing patterns. Commercials play on our psychological desire to be “cool,” to fit in, or to feel good about ourselves.

That is, until you recall the image of your friend vomiting at a party or constantly r

    Philosophy 2 Smart’s argument, “someone could be morally obligated to execute an innocent person to prevent something worse”, must be accepted by all utilitarians. Smart’s argument must be accepted by all ultilitarians based on certain principles of utilitarianism, which make it possible for us to make the assumption: all utilitarians believe in consequentialism. Consequentialism in turn is the basis behind Smart’s argument being true. The example Smart refers to is McCloskey’s situation of whether or not a sheriff should kill an innocent man to save hundreds of pe
