Strategic Killer Of Minorities, “A.K.A. Fast Foods

What parent could bare the thought of being a contributor of their families poor health condition. Nevertheless, I see this destruction happening everyday all around me regarding minorities and the way they allow their families to eat, especially their children. Eventually, their children will be obese and severely sick because of poor social status, minorities makes poor choices, some are unemployment , low income and society marketing of, “Cheap Food.” Researchers have shown the effects of diabetes on complications of cardiovascular disease is more severe among members of most ethnic minority groups in western countries as among populations of developing countries where an increased waist-to-hip ratio is a strong predicator of, “ischemic heart disease.” Fast Food, Poverty, and Job Discrimination is destroying our young generation, even though others may argue differently. A contributor of obesity in the minority community is the, “Fast Food Industry.“ Marketing has played a major role in enticing the general public with advertisements and campaigns. Obesity in minorities are at an all time high. Some could argue that obesity is caused by laziness of technology, fewer people use their body at home because of a sedentary life style. However, researchers have shown statistically that the food itself is manufactured to make people eat more. The fast food industry…...

...Davy Reteno Linda Johnson Burgess English 135: Advanced composition Life or Death: the practice of Euthanasia Euthanasia is a very complex and difficult issue to comprehend, partially because of how it is described by religion, the government, and just your ethical motives behind euthanasia. Although people are open minded to using euthanasia when they are terminally ill or suffer of such problems were death would be better than life, the great majority of people, including politicians, priests, and doctors have many moral objections to the topic. Euthanasia is as a matter of fact, humanly wrong, and goes against civilizations most sacred laws. Thus, what is Euthanasia? Legalizing euthanasia is an important step towards person’s freedom? Euthanasia is also known as mercy killing. What euthanasia simply gives is a better ending to those patients who seem to not have any deserving end. There are various ways of practicing it, and many definitions around it have born. A pro-euthanasia group defines assisted suicide as when someone provides the means (drugs or other agents) by which a person can take his or her own life. There also exists what is called as physician-assisted suicide, in which a doctor prescribes lethal drugs in order to free the patient from there unbearable life. Medical professional codes have long prohibited physician involvement in assisting a patient's suicide. However, despite ethical and legal prohibitions, calls for the......

...Native Americans Deepak Patel HIS/135-The American Experience Since 1945 October 6, 2012 The Native Americans who were native of the United States have suffered many injustices during the 1960s. Many negative stereotypes still existed about Indians, showing Native Americans in a bad light. Native Americans had the highest unemployment rates, the lowest average income, and suffered from poor health that they could not have fixed. Eisenhower also set up the policy of ‘termination.’ This policy was made to “end the status of Indians as wards of the government and grant them all the rights and prerogatives pertaining to American citizenship” (Eckholm, 1994). The results of this were disastrous, and many Native Americans remained poor. Still, Native Americans were constantly relocated to reservations that were supposed to preserve their societies, but actually left them powerless. Native Americans eventually started to get mobilized to challenge the government on water, fishing, and treaty rights. The Red Power was a political movement in the 1960's. The Native Americans were fighting to get back their land. They felt that they had to get violent in order to regain their civil rights. Most them were willing to break the laws and confront the government. Most of these Native Americans came from the urban ghettos and were not Indians from reservations. They were influenced by the African Americans. This movement lead up to a series......

...Ch r i s t i n e Ro e ll Intercultural Training with Films ilms are a great medium to use not only to practice English, but also to facilitate intercultural learning. Today English is a global language spoken by people from many countries and cultural backgrounds. Since culture greatly impacts communication, it is helpful for teachers to introduce lessons and activities that reveal how different dialects, forms of address, customs, taboos, and other cultural elements influence interaction among different groups. Numerous films contain excellent examples of intercultural communication and are highly useful resources for teachers. Additional reasons for teachers to incorporate films in class and encourage their students to watch movies in English include: • Films combine pleasure and learning by telling a story in a way that captures and holds the viewer’s interest. • Films simultaneously address different senses and cognitive channels. For example, spoken language is supported by visual elements that make it easier for students to understand the dialogues and the plot. • Students are exposed to the way people actually speak. 2 2010 N u m b e r F • Films involve the viewers, appeal to their feelings, and help them empathize with the protagonists. • DVDs usually come with subtitles in English, which facilitates understanding and improves reading skills. After discussing the importance of teaching intercultural communication and suggesting films that match specific......

...short form of the IPIP-NEO, correlations range from 0.70 to 0.82 (0.85 to 0.92 when corrected for unreliability) with the corresponding NEO PI-R factors (Goldberg, 2001). However, it has been suggested that even such high correlations do not imply that the different versions are truly equivalent (Costa & McCrae, 1999). 3. The IPIP Big-Five factor markers The IPIP contains not only versions of proprietary scales, but also a number of items known collectively as the Big-Five factor markers (Goldberg, 2001). The starting point for the creation A.J. Gow et al. / Personality and Individual Differences 39 (2005) 317–329 319 of these items was GoldbergÕs (1992) 100 unipolar Big-Five factor markers (derived from early lexical studies in English). These trait-descriptive adjectives had been used in a number of studies (Goldberg, 1992) and suggested 5 broad factors (very similar to those recovered from questionnaire studies), namely Extraversion (or Surgency), Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Emotional Stability (often regarded as the opposite pole of Neuroticism) and Intellect (or Imagination). The adjective markers were related to the NEO-PI (an earlier version of the NEO PI-R), and correlations between corresponding scales ranged from around 0.46 to 0.69 (Goldberg, 1992). However, Goldberg (1999) proposed that these adjectives might be improved upon to create questionnaire items that would provide more contextual information than single words, but still be more succinct......

...10 Tips for speaking English 1. The first thing I would do after getting up every morning was to read the newspaper, front to back. It doesn’t matter which newspaper you subscribe to, as long as it is a major English-language paper, such as The Hindu, The Times of India, Hindustan Times, The Indian Express, etc. While different people have different opinions on the quality of each paper, they are all more or less equally useful in getting to learn the language. It is also not necessary to read every page and article; it is time-consuming and, sometimes, boring. However, you should most definitely look for articles that interest you. 2. I bought a pocket dictionary. They are cheap, compact and useful. There were many words I came across on a day-to-day basis that I did not know, and carrying a pocket dictionary everywhere allowed me to look up these words immediately so that the matter would not slip off my mind later. 3. Once learned, I also made a conscious effort to use the words in conversation. This instilled the words in my head and I was able to draw on them whenever required. 4. I convinced some of my friends to come together and form something of a ‘study group’; we were all interested in learning English, and I figured it would make it easier and more fun for us to do it together. We met twice a week in the evening and discussed the words and phrases we had come across, suggested articles, magazines, and books to each other, etc. 5. Another thing my group of......

...clearly Anita. And Anita managed to use the language in some sort of way that it doesn’t sound like many of the other short stories that we know. As I already mentioned before, the majority of the short story is told in flashback and in some dialogues kind of way. The use of dialogues is made to reflect on Anita as a narrator and such as a protagonist. “We must face what we saw and what we did about what we saw. And maybe after that we could go back to our names, to calling ourselves our real names. (Though I doubt we'd ever do that. It would sound like we were angry at each other, or suddenly frosty i f I out of the blue started calling Tawn Marion and she started calling me Anita. It'd be ridiculous. Our names would sound dated.)” (Line 135-139). From that sentence it clearly indicates that after all these years, these two ladies still has this fantastic friendship and never have the thought to break it between them. “I could never call you anything other than Tawn.” (Line 139-140). The protagonist doesn’t change the use of the language at all through the short story. It is exemplified when Barn and Tawny is all grown and talks about their childhood especially the part where Anita (Barn) saw her own dad kiss with Tawny’s mother. Talking about contrasts in this short story, one of the contrasts that come across is the one between the Anita and Barn. Since Anita was ten years old and Tawny nine, the nickname has been their way of identifying themselves. In some kind of way,......

The second text by David Hughes “Do we really need foreign language skills to flourish?” David Hughes thinks that the fluency in foreign language is a benefit for anyone, but he doesn´t see the importance in that, when the rest of the world is learning English. When David Hughes went to the Far East, he heard English spoken everywhere, and as he wrote it in the text. The third text by Susan Purcell “Saying Britons ´don’t do´ languages is a fallacy” explain why the discussion about the English language skills is far more nuances. Susan Purcell is comparing the text to the EU-countries with England. She is talking about how the other European Union countries compare their language and how English is the mandatory first foreign language in 13 of the EU´s member states.

...English should continue to be the official language of India. English is used as the official language in India. Yes • English is one such language that is understood by people from different castes and states, and therefore deserves to be the official language of India. • If any other language is tried to make the official language, all the regional parties will start the battle of making the state level as official language of India. • If Hindi is given priority then it will create differences among the people who don’t speak it making them feel as second class citizens. • Region C forms an important part of India that got agitated when PM Modi used Hindi for its diplomatic talks.  • The use of English language is as per the requirement of being a part of globalization and there is nothing wrong in it. No • Forget about all the different castes and religions as Indians have their own national language that is Hindi, and that should only be the official language of India. • It is the duty of the government to take the measures so that people all over in India can read, write and speak in Hindi.  • Already Indian has adopted the western culture in many ways. If it continues there will be no personal or rather say national identity of India. • In this case, India should learn something from Pakistan who made the Urdu as their official language after the division of country. • The small little steps are the ways that will make sure that the...

...“English should not become official” America is a country filled with many people with different language trying to get along. We live in a society made up and founded by immigrants. Looking at our society today, English shouldn’t become the official language of the U.S because, first of all it is unfair for others living here who have English as a second language or can speak little English. Second of all, it will limit certain people when it comes to finding a job because not everybody is capable of speaking, reading, or writing the English language correctly. Finally, it violates the terms our country was built on. If English becomes the official language of the U.S, people with English as a second language or with little English are put at a disadvantage. It’s a fact that our society is largely made of immigrants. Moreover, children who will be born in the U.S won’t be able to learn their parent’s native language. So it wouldn’t make any sense from the government to limit them because the government will need bilingual people. We take pride in our diversity, so when we limit our diversity, we put people here at a disadvantage. Additionally, there are certain people who don’t dedicate themselves to learn the English language. The reason is because they get employed by businesses that practice the same language. For instance, lots of Spanish immigrants only get to work in the Spanish community. Spanish is very much used in the United States, because they don’t develop......
