Introduction
In this essay the writers are going to discuss the statement that says “infiltration model is the best model to describe settlement of Israel in Canaan”. Nonetheless contradiction between the two books, Joshua and Judges. The book of Joshua reports the complete conquest (Josh 11:16-17) listing the conquered kings and cities; Jerusalem (Jebus), Hebron, and Taanach, whereas the book of Judges does not support the book of Joshua’s claim of an “all-at-once” military conquest of Canaan listing the unconquered territory (Judg 1:9); Jerusalem (Jebus), Hebron, and Taanach examples will be given and other models will be given such as the conquest model and social revolution model. Main discussion and conclusion will be given
Main discussion The Peaceful Infiltration Model Albrecht Alt and Martin Noth were responsible for the peaceful infiltration. According to Alt, the stories in Genesis about Abraham, Isaac and Jacob preserve some genuine historical memories of the nomadic people who became the Israelites. These nomads or semi-nomads had migrated into Canaan. They had previously worshiped different gods, who are reflected in the different titles used for the divine name in the stories of the patriarchs. At first they settled in the empty spaces away from the Canaanite cities, that is, in the highlands. With the decline of the Canaanite city-state system, they were able to occupy the lowlands as well. According to Noth, Israelites could not have been indigenous to Canaan because the location of their settlements, the hill country away from the Canaanite cities (Israelite highland settlement) and their way of living clearly indicate patterns of peaceful migration and the preservation of desert tribal traditions as reflected in the patriarchal stories (M. Noth, l1960, 53, 68 The peaceful infiltration model appealed to people who were convinced that a more…...

...The Howard Sheth model, serves as an integrating framework for a very sophisticated comprehensive theory of consumer behavior. It should be noted that the authors actually use the term buyer in their model to refer to industrial purchases as well as ultimate consumers. Thus, it can be seen that their interest was to develop a unified theory useful for understanding a great variety of behaviors. The model attempts to depict rational brand choice behavior by buyers under conditions of incomplete information and limited abilities. It distinguishes three levels of decision making: 1) Extensive problem solving – early stages of decision making in which the buyer has little information about brands and has not yet developed, well defined and structured criteria by which to choose among products (choice criteria). 2) Limited problem solving – in this more advanced stage choice criteria are well defined but the buyer is still undecided about which set of brands will best serve him. Thus, the consumer still experiences uncertainty about which brand is best. 3) Routinized responses behavior – buyers have well defined choice criteria and also have strong predispositions towards the brand. Little confusion exists in the consumer’s mind and he is ready to purchase a particular brand with little evaluation of alternatives The model borrows from learning concepts to explain brand choice behavior over time as learning takes place and the buyer moves from exclusive to routinized problem......

Compare the Three Models of the Criminal Justice Process

...Compare the three models of the criminal justice process (the Wedding Cake, the Funnel and the Net Models) The criminal justice process is very complex process and varies from state to state. Three models of the criminal justice process as discussed and reviewed in chapter 9 of out textbook are the funnel, wedding and net. (Meyer, Grant 2003) In this essay I will compare these three models of the criminal justice process and give my opinion on which model I think best describes the criminal justice system as it is today. I will also give you a rationale for the choice that I choose. The first model I will discuss is the funnel model. This model looks at how decisions are made at each level in the criminal justice process and sort out those people and cases that it feels should not go through the entire process from those whom it feels should. This process is used as a means of limiting the number cases to a small percentage of cases that have to be resolved by trial advocacy and incarceration. The process limits the amount of offenders in court and incarcerated at any given time. The benefit of this model is it prevents the criminal justice system from becoming backed up. The truth is the criminal Justice system is already backed up, and crimes are increasing on a daily basis. A common misconception of the funnel process is that it "lets criminals off,” however this is not true. Most cases are often dismissed or pleas are bargained due to lack of evidence. The truth is......

Three Specific Ways, in Which the Nursing Conceptual Model of, Martha Rogers Can Be Used to Improve Nursing Practice.

...Three Specific Ways, In Which the Nursing Conceptual Model of, Martha Rogers can be used to Improve Nursing Practice. Lilian Iberosi Grand Canyon University Three Specific Ways, in which the Nursing Conceptual Model of, Martha Rogers can be used to Improve Nursing. Martha E. Rogers’ nursing theory of “Science of Unitary Human Being” consists of eight concepts namely: energy field, openness, pattern, pan-dimensionality, homeodynamic principles, resonance, helicy, and integrality. Understanding these concepts is the beginning for direct guidance into the practice of nursing. They provide a different explanation for the metaparadign concepts of person, health, environment, and nursing [4]. Thus according to the Rogers’ theory, a person is “defined as an indivisible, pan-dimensional energy field identified by pattern, and manifesting characteristics specific to the whole and that can't be predicted from knowledge of the parts”. A person is also “a unified whole, having its own distinct characteristics that can't be viewed by looking at, describing, or summarizing the parts”[2]. In the same vein, Rogers defines health as an expression of the life process. It is the manifestation of the “mutual, simultaneous interaction of the human and environmental fields”. Thus, health and illness are considered part of the same continuum. Therefore to prepare nurses to utilize Roger’s model would entail a “nursing curriculum that teaches and practices therapeutic touch, and conducting...

...The specification says ‘explanations’, which means you’ll need to know at least two explanations. 1. The importation model – this explains aggression in prisons. In brief, it says aggression occurs because of characteristics that prisoners bring inside with them. Cheeseman (2003) said that men in prison have a certain way of behaving (probably why they went to prison in the first place!) and they then apply that behaviour to their new institutional setting. Toch (1997) says this: all prisons inherit their subcultural sediments from the street corners that supply them with clients. This suggests that young people can be aggressive both on the street and in prison. Personal and psychological factors that existed in inmates before being incarcerated can affect the level of aggressive behaviour shown in prison. Mills, Kroner and Weekes (1998) studied prisoners admitted to a Canadian prison using the alcohol dependence scale (ADS). Inmates who had higher levels of dependence were associated with more aggression shown in prison. Also, inmates who had greater periods of unemployment, lower levels of education, and a more serious criminal record were more likely to be aggressive in prison (Kane and Janus, 1981). Demographic variables that seem to influence aggression in prisons are race and age. Studies in America have shown that non-whites and younger prisoners are more likely to be aggressive whilst incarcerated. Kane and Janus (1981) say that this is because these......

Three Rewards and Three Challenges

...Is the career you chose a job or is it your work? I feel a job is just something you go to everyday, but work is something you do that will make a difference in someone's life. I'm hoping that it won't just make a difference in my life, but that of a child's life too. This is the reason I choose this career path in becoming a teacher. “What are three rewards and three challenges that you will face as a teacher?” I'll be talking about these challenges and rewards in the next few pages, on how I feel teaching make a major impact on not only my life, but hopefully the lives of thousands of children to come. At the end of the day I'm hoping to be that one teacher that my students will remember forever. What greater gift could I be given than to make a positive impact in a child's life and future? So, with that said let me begin with the rewards! The first one that comes to mind is the achievements of my students, in more detail student discoveries and the exciting new things they will learn through me teaching in my classroom. In doing so, I can show them how to untangle things they are struggling with, challenges they face, or problems that might occur; by showing them a different light. The smile that comes across a child’s face symbolizing that they understand or I've got it! Is one of the best feelings I feel, a teacher could have. This would show to me that I'm doing my job well and I helped a child cover new exciting things! In hopes that they would not be......

A Comparative Analysis of the Effectiveness of Three Solvency Management Models

...A Comparative Analysis Of The Effectiveness Of Three Solvency Management Models By Enyi, Patrick Enyi Ph.D, MBA, B.Sc, ACA, ACCA, MFP, RFS. Fellow, American Academy of Financial Management (AAFM) Member, American Accounting Association (AAA) Head, Department of Accounting, Covenant University, Ota, Nigeria A Comparative Analysis Of The Effectiveness Of Three Solvency Management Models Abstract The introduction of the Altman’s Z-score model in 1983 and much recently the Enyi’s Relative Solvency Ratio model in 2005 has divergently provided financial analysts with alternative methods of analyzing corporate solvency which hitherto was exclusively done using the traditional historical record based ratio analysis, with particular reference to the current ratio. To test the relevance and effectiveness of the three models, real life performance data were extracted from the annual reports of 7 quoted companies, analyzed using the three models and the results compared to show the strengths and weaknesses of each. The result revealed that the current ratio and the Z-score models suffer from many limitations including imprecision while the Relative Solvency Ratio combines the capability of an effective indicator with the precision required of a true predictor.

...Week Two Case Studies Case 7.1 Three Shifts, Three Supervisors (Northouse) 1. Based on the principles of path-goal theory, describe why Art and Bob appear to be less effective than Carol? The path-goal theory focuses on motivating followers to achieve goals. It suggests that if followers believe there will be positive outcomes in their efforts, they will be highly motivated to do their work. Leaders, in this theory, use a style that compliments the follower’s needs in order to motivate them. Take the following situation as an example. I am newly hired as a sales manager and the morale in the department is extremely low. A few months ago the department’s profit in sales had been at the highest in decades. Multiple sales associates exceeded their quota, month after month, with no recognition such as bonuses or awards. The sales associates feel no reason to continue exceeding their quota because there are no positive outcomes from it. In the path-goal theory, I would create a recognition program as the incoming manager and motivate people to reach and exceed their goals. Moreover, I would guide them to understand their job and encourage that they are doing good work. Based on the principles of the path-goal theory, Carol appears to be more effective than Art and Bob. As a leader, she possesses behaviors that result in motivated followers. Carol shows directive leadership by ensuring that her group understands what needs to be done and how to do it. She has...

...Three Shifts, Three Supervisors Michelle Minchew LeTourneau University In partial fulfillment of the requirements for: MGMT 3713 – Management and Leadership Barry Fontaine October 11, 2015 Three Shifts, Three Supervisors An effective organization is one capable of implementing its strategy in a manner which satisfies the needs of its multiple stakeholders-customers, shareholders, and employees. A strategy is implemented effectively when people and groups in the organization work in a motivated, skilled, and coordinated manner on the appropriate tasks (Beer, 1994). This theory, or idea, coincides with the path-goal theory which is about how leaders motivate followers to accomplish designated goals (Northouse, 2016). Three Shifts, Three Supervisors case study 6.1 depicts the effectiveness of an organization through four different leadership styles. Brako is a small manufacturing company that entails three different shifts which hold three different job functions. The first shift, supervised by Art, is in charge of the production line and packaging. This job is noted as being monotonous with set rules and standards that require little to no independent decision making. According to path-goal theory, Arts leadership behavior should be constructed around the Supportive style; providing what is missing by nurturing followers when they are engaged in tasks that are repetitive and unchallenging (Northouse, 2016, p.121). The second shift, led by Bob, job scope......
