  4. This essay critically discusses the social issue of homelessness and its impact on young people and will show by the conclusion that there is no need for homelessness in England.

    Oldman (in Roche and Tucker, 2002), argues for an alternative definition of homelessness which would include issues such as a lack of affordable, decent and secure housing. This definition would then include over crowdedness, poor housing and living in tents, caravans or sofa hopping for example which within the present Government Framework is hidden. People are more likely to become homeless if they were in care as a child or had a problematic childhood; or have a mental illness or addiction, have been in the armed forces; have spent time in prison; from minority ethnic communities.

  13. The Values Of Online Recruitment To Organisations

    They are listed in the Bibliography at the end of the essay. Several analysts, including Armstrong (2001) argue that the aim of the recruitment and selection process is to find quality staff to fulfil new or existing positions that occur at a company. Recruiting staff is extremely expensive, therefore it is crucial to get it right the first time. To find the best applicant for a role, a firm has to define a job description, a person specification, and then attract candidates by using the most appropriate sources.

  19. In assessing the competitive position of a large online trader, we would use the five forces analysis of Michael E. Porter. The assessment would compare Amazon as an online bookstore against its online and conventional competitors.

    They have not achieved the brand name recognition of Amazon. It is perhaps doubtful that we will see many or any new entrants into this market, the costs of matching the infrastructure and brand recognition of Amazon are just too great. So the potential entrants were low. Industry Competitors The major competitors of Amazon are Barnes & Noble and Borders. Barnes & Noble is a retail giant offering books and CDs both in their outlets all over the country. It opened their online industry in 1997 and has become the fourth largest e-commerce sites today.

  23. "Every child witnesses 10, 000 television murders before they are ten years old". Does television make children violent?

    Within the debate involving the effects of a violent media on children, are the Drabman and Thomas studies, which have been well documented for the content of their findings. Several replicated experiments were conducted to test the theory that violent portrayals on televison have similar effects on children and desensitize them to real-life aggression. Twenty-one male and Twenty-one female, school-aged children saw either a violent or non-violent film extract. Each subject was then told to watch two children on a video monitor, supposedly in an adjacent room, who would subsequently become violent toward each other.

  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Outline and discuss the view that media institutions are expanding and becoming more popular.

    "In conclusion, I believe that the media institution is gaining power and will come to eventually directing and determining the culture of society rather than respond to or reflect society culture. Overall sociologist believe that the mass media is increasingly becoming more popular as the term 'meditation' describes this process of mass recognition. The media has begun to replace our local knowledge and awareness. This suggests that the media has become very popular and important in society lives due to the fact that they have replaced community-based forms of social and cultural life. Jamaal Channer"

  • Compare two search engines on the internet.

    "In conclusion, I believe that 'Ask Jeeves' did a slightly better job at finding a Prom dress maker in the UK, because the site was a lot more user-friendly. It was less crowded on the page, unlike 'Yahoo!'. 'Ask Jeeves' didn't come up with the most results, but the results I did get were relevant to my search. 'Ask Jeeves' also gave other related searches, which you could click on, and get even more results. 'Yahoo!' was more funky, and for younger people who have a sound knowledge of the internet, whereas 'Ask Jeeves' is for a wider audience. However, both search engines were a pleasure to use, and they both did an excellent job at finding what I was looking for."

  • Assess the view that women are stereotyped and symbolically annihilated in the media.

    "After looking at these 3 media types, I can say the women are indeed stereotyped and symbolically annihilated within them. All of the 3 medias show in ideal image of women; slim, attractive and fashionable, but this raises a question - does the media create the people in society or do the people in society create what goes into the media? I think that it is the people who create what goes into the media, because things that get printed or shown are things that people in society want to see. In conclusion, you can also look at the feminist view of the media to try to see if women are stereotyped and symbolically annihilated. Liberal feminists believe that journalists have learnt to portray women in a particular way, usually classless and family based. Radical feminists see men as the enemy. Men hold dominant positions in the media and they consciously manipulate the content for their own benefit, and to the detriment of women Finally, socialist feminists blame the capitalist structure for the disadvantaged position of women in society and that the role of the media is to sustain the capitalist system and the role of women within it."
