I have developed my understanding in the niche of politics and the UK electoral system, which has allowed me to consider thoroughly the intricacies of what politics involves. For example, it requires one to feel fundamentally passionate about their pledges, and to appease a wide audience. What you pledge for must also be pragmatic and achievable, otherwise you?ll be unable to follow up on your intentions. I have also figured that politics is extremely cut-throat, as when mitigating one-half of the population, the other half will be hugely disappointed, and likely to campaign against the pledges, and therefore many politicians have to make compromising in order to become supported. Politics is fundamentally about trying to rule the country, in order to pass laws, which should fundamentally increase the well-being of the country; however, many parties dispute the best for the country, and the best way for the country to function. One such example of this nowadays which is a major epidemic, is the dispute as to whether allow immigrants into the country. Some say that they bring diversity to the country, as well as being one of the fundamental mechanisms to bringing money to the country, as they contribute to the working population, and increasing our surplus wealth. It is also the right thing to do, participating in helping the less fortunate. ...read more.


Friends like seeing friends succeed and achieve their goals, and most of the time, good friends are willing to help you in any way they can if it means seeing them become happy and successful. Another benefit to having a positive relationship, is that they provide mutual trust, support and respect. You should have confidence to grow and share in the important events of life, good and bad symbiotically. This means helping each other relieve emotional stress during bad moments, such as work or family issues. Moreover, a partner will always allow you to confide in them, alleviating the burden one individual may have to endure if a negative relationship doesn?t allow for open discussion of an issue. Thankfully, having a supportive social circle or partner is one of the best ways to stay strong, persist forward, and get a little bit of help when we need it. One of the more obvious benefits of positive relationships is that they make life more enjoyable. Good friends, family, and co-workers make life an overall more pleasant experience ? we enjoy spending time with these people and we often share positive moments with them on a frequent basis. They provide that extra flavour to life that we can?t find by ourselves. Having positive relationships in our life increases our sense of purpose and meaning. When we have a real, positive effect on someone else, we feel like we are making a significant difference in the world ? and we are. Positive relationships enrich our life story. They fulfil our need to belong in a community and they give us a stronger sense of identity. Without this sense of belonging, we can often feel isolated and disconnected with ourselves. But once we find our place in society, we become more comfortable in our own skin. Element 2: Health and emotional well-being 1. The benefits of a healthy lifestyle 2. ...read more.


Our more unorthodox photograph service includes an online service, so if you are unable to attend the festival, you can still go online, upload your photograph with a celebrity whom attended the festival. We would then edit the photograph making it appear as if they did attend the festival. We also decided that we should provide different qualities of imagery printing to suite everybody. This way we can be recognised as a quality and useful service. Describe the skills you have developed from this activity. I have taken away several useful skills from the final presentation. Some more useful than others, such as entrepreneurial skills in particular which specifically includes, developing team skills, and taking on individual roles and responsibilities. Developing the business plan also required several skills in order to complete such as organisation (segregating the work and assigning it to different people) and time management. The project also required research to develop the plan that would be feasible. Identify what went well during your Team Enterprise and what could have been improved? All things turned our adequately, as only two of us four members were present and did the majority of the work. The presentation was conducted to a satisfactory level, with nothing particularly fancy about it. There were therefore plenty of improvements that could have been made. For instance, there were no ?apparatus? or background displays to present to the judges. Instead we just orated the presentation. We also weren?t as confident or enthusiastic about the presentation as many other more prepared groups. Also, two of the members were apathetic about the preparation, meaning myself and another team member had to take on extra roles. Why is it important for young people to be involved in enterprise activities? Firstly, it opens up new opportunities to younger people, by allowing them to express ideas through a systematic and formal process. But most importantly, it allows children to truly experience the entrepreneurial world first hand. Secondly, and most importantly, it develops new skills which is the whole purpose of the activity. ...read more.

    Clones would face discrimination and unreasonable treatment. If cloning was made possible, it would probably find a market in parents who have trouble conceiving children.
