ROUGH DRAFT PAPER

Reasons for significance in findings: A) Search for locality in which the trend exists
B) Violence & divorce; prominent cultures with certain backgrounds--not just a minor detail, rather an a casual means of behavior, accepted under normal circumstances and quite habitual.
C) What kind of violence is to be established: 1. The goal of this paper is to link internal violence with divorce, where the former is an essential predecessor of the other. 2. Categorize the different kinds of violence; several varies ranging from conflict among a community, disciplinary actions on children or spouses, or retaliation against an enemy.

Rough draft
Within the realms of this paper, the study concerning violence and divorce can be a difficult one to establish. My attempts in proving a link between violence and divorce appear prosperous, yet contain many ambiguous leads that require much recognition and attention. In beginning the report of this paper, material of other cultures needed analysis, where only the applicable information must be stored in an orderly fashion and presented with much coherency and vividness.
My research Sometimes your hypothesis doesnt work worldwide (no overall correlation); instead it is only applicable in certain regions of the world. Prior to beginning this paper, clues had to be set into place, and a lead need developing.
My lead came about by following specific traits in the data of the computer program. Investigation of variables that measure the SAME concept is called the study of reliability. You can correlate and cross-tab these sets of variables to see if they measure the same thing. The idea is to get the CONCEPTS in your hypotheses in line with the MEASURES you use in terms of the variables, or recodings of the variables. Multiple measure of the same concept add to the reliability of the study through correlation with each other. Independent correlations of such multiple measures with measures of other concepts specified in the hypotheses are evidence for replication. You would like to show your findings use reliable measures and that the findings replicate to show consistent relationships between the concepts as stated in your hypotheses. b) Separation in marriages, often a choice of the male, made on his own free will. The concept of morality responsibility inextricably linked with notion. Senses of responsibility, role requires a person to be bound to perform whatever duties are attached to their distinctive place in a social organization. Casual responsibilities-refers to production of effects; another feature,capacity responsibility is a person's ability to understand and behave according to the dictates of law or morality. These factors were important when analyzing the the people of each culture. As repetitious as certain characteristics seemed, relentless efforts fortified a solid foundation for my purpose, alerting me that I was in the right direction.
What I have uncovered while researching and analyzing my data is that my hypothesis did not work on a universal basis, rather it applied to certain regions of the world; mostly involving Africa.
My task for writing this paper was a simple one: to find and to record evidence of a connection between violence within a society and the frequency of divorce. Attempting this feat required a proper defining of the terms whereby excluding topics that might be related but not quite within the sole purpose of my paper. Secondly, in order to fully under stand a society, I saw a need to include a short, but concise background about the differing cultures so that a reader, should they doubt the savageness of a society, may then understand some of the motives behind a particular people's actions due to the society's economy, marriage & ceremonies, and social conflicts. These factors contribute to identifying and to distinguishing traits of each culture, so as to prove that different tribes or societies were inspected to validate my hypothesis.
Looking into each continent of the world, the general regions displaying the violence and divorce factors were Africa and South America. Surprisingly the likeness of this combination, regardless of how common this may be in most cultures, showed in the areas mentioned above according to the statistics in the SPSS data sheet. Aware of the overwhelmingly tribe-like fashion prominent in Africa and those existing in Latin America, I can now integrate knowledge from my history class about the savageness nature of people in Africa and the apparent possibilities in Latin America.
The African people owe their increasing violent nature to the Europeans during times of Colonialism in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Ever since the import of guns and the distribution of firearms among African people, the expansion of tribes through military means--such as capturing and integrating prisoners into an empire--look for among the people and encouraged raiding and feuding of tribes with power tools of destruction. This advantage in firearms of one tribe over another, in addition to vastly populated units, made mobile tribes a treat to passive and already established tribes.
The significance of this summarization, is that violence was, and at times, area in which these people know much about and therefore could be characterized as just that, violent people. Realizing the pattern of behavior just described, I can then look for the evidence of divorce among the different tribes to justify my hypothesis.
Considering the work done using SPSS, I found myself dependent on the data given about my variables. One helpful hit guiding me to a productive route was the association of societies with the proper statistics of each variable. Being able to recognize a consistency of data from both variables for each society meant the correlation was met; jotting down these leads fed me a detailed list a valuable contenders.
That is a "lead" to follow in your research. Investigation of variables that measure the SAME concept is called the study of reliability. You can correlate and cross-tab these sets of variables to see if they measure the same thing. The idea is to get the CONCEPTS in your hypotheses in line with the MEASURES you use in terms of the variables, or recodings of the variables. Multiple measure of the same concept add to the reliability of the study through correlation with each other. Independent correlations of such multiple measures with measures of other concepts specified in the hypotheses are evidence for replication. You would like to show your findings use reliable measures and that the findings replicate to show consistent relationships between the concepts as stated in your hypotheses.

Book: Violence in America

Real danger of personal attack is in the home A person's earliest experience of violence comes in the home-spankings and physical punishment from parents. Such a form of violence exists with many cultures; for no reason are Africa nor Latin America exceptions. Accepting violence as a way to solve problems limits alternatives to handling the problem in a more productive manner. Conflict is so essential that organizations and societies are likely to stagnate if they try to prevent it; need to manage rather than prevent. When conflict is severely escalated, it is sometimes necessary for a third parties to provide relationship therapy.
Sometimes your hypothesis doesnt work worldwide (no overall correlation) but it works in certain regions.
