"In the United States neither race nor ethnicity are factors in determining a person's opportunities in life".
A Negative Response to the Reaction Statement: "In the United States neither race nor ethnicity are factors in determining a person's opportunities in life" by Yvette M. Oneil Sociology - 101 Professor Carmella Marrone John Jay College March 3, 2001 African American, Latino American, Italian American, Mexican American, these terms were unrecognizable hundreds of years ago, and probably would gotten you shot for being blasphemous. The word American went hand and hand with the description "white," there were no any exceptions to this rule. Today many people believe that this prejudice no longer exists and that your race or ethnic background has no bearing what so ever on the opportunities that are given or presented to you in this day and age. It's the new millennium! Times have changed is what many believe, but history has a remarkable way of repeating itself and sometimes the actions of our forefathers though often loudly and publicly objected to are silently and covertly revered. People flock to the United States because of the gospel that in America you have an unlimited opportunity to achieve and become somebody, regardless of who you are, where your coming from and how will you get where you want to go. If this was so true then why does every person coming from another Country go directly to a designated base of "friendly" liaisons which have been erected to
"In view of Wordsworth's Claim for the importance to him of low and rustic life; estimate the effectiveness of those poems which deal with the life and character of country people."
English Literature - Wordsworth (Low and Rustics) "In view of Wordsworth's Claim for the importance to him of low and rustic life; estimate the effectiveness of those poems which deal with the life and character of country people." Wordsworth loves to write poetry about low and rustic characters that he has met. Three examples of such poems are, "The Old Cumberland Beggar", "Simon Lee, the Old Huntsman" and "Resolution And Independence". In all three of these poems Wordsworth makes a clear connection between the men involved and the nature surrounding them. I feel that this shows why these people countrymen have been so important to Wordsworth. Wordsworth loves nature, he is "At one with nature" and he actually describes these men as being part of the landscape. That they themselves are part of the countryside to which Wordsworth is so spiritually associated with. I think that Wordsworth is very successful at dealing with the characters of low and rustic country people as he has grown with them and has been around them all the time. He creates an almost mystical association between himself, the land and these men. I feel that the most important aspect of these poems and how they relate back to nature and naturalism is the vivid and beautiful use of description that Wordsworth successfully uses to describe and familiarise us with the three characters. Simon Lee is an old
"In what ways is watching Film/TV an active process of interpretation, rather than a passive process of 'assimilating' information?"
"In what ways is watching Film/TV an active process of interpretation, rather than a passive process of 'assimilating' information?" There are many ways in which an audience of Film or Television actively interpret what they see on screen rather than simply absorbing it, we as viewers, at least to a certain degree, are active in constructing meaning rather than, so to speak, just letting it go over our heads. Fundamentally it is important to note that, no matter how strong a debate may be for an audience being passive, we are still undertaking some process of cognitive activity just to merely comprehend a TV programme or film. When we visually perceive something, an image on screen say, there is a basic cognitive process already in action, which is, that we compare what we see, to what we already know, and to what we expect. However, there are those who criticise TV and the moving image as being a passive and mundane leisure past time. For example, Frank Lloyd Wright described TV as 'chewing gum for the eyes' and Ernie Kovacs called TV 'a medium, so called because it is neither rare nor well done'. Although, Ien Ang, for example, concludes that the TV audience as a whole is stereotyped and labelled as 'couch potatoes', but they should not be, as 'the ordinary viewers' perspective is almost always ignored...' and 'living with television involves...interpretations' (Ang 1991:

Title:" Information wants to be free". Discuss the arguments for and against this proposition (widely circulated on the internet and often attributed to Steward Brand, author of The Media Lab, 1987). To what extent do you consider that it expresses a meaningful and important idea? Registration Number: 030165609 Module: Information Systems and the Information Society Date: 19/12/03 Module Coordinator: Dr. Mark Sanderson Module Code: INF6400 . Abstract/ Summary This essay aims to describe the different views concerning the trend "Information wants to be free." There are different kinds of opinions concerning this matter. The supporters claim that the free access of information prevail certain human rights like liberty and democracy. But also it creates substantial problems concerning the protection of personal information and the formation of laws that will assure data protection. As a result the role of the state is fundamental; in order to create those restrictions that will assure that the citizens will be able to have access to their own information and at the same time to protect them from the illegal access of information. Free software from the other hand has to be free of charge because it is the mean which connects technology with humans. This essay concludes that it is very difficult to make a decision whether information should be free or not but the
"Intention to create legal relations could be used to replace the doctrine of consideration. There is no reason in principle why a gratuitous promise seriously meant should not be enforced."
"Intention to create legal relations could be used to replace the doctrine of consideration. There is no reason in principle why a gratuitous promise seriously meant should not be enforced." Critically evaluate this statement. Before looking at if the intention to create legal relations should be used to replace consideration, it is important to look at how these doctrines fit into the essential elements in a contract. Their use will then be discussed, together with the doctrine of promissory estoppel. In evaluating these principles reference will be made to case law, judicial comment and of leading contract academics work. Finally, thought will be given to the future of consideration, and if it is still necessary today, when so many other countries have adopted alternative approaches to ensuring that contracts are binding. In the formation of contracts two elements are vital. Firstly, the "offer," an indication by one person prepared to contract with another, on certain terms, which are fixed, or capable of being fixed at the time the offer is made.1 Secondly, there must be an "acceptance", an unconditional assent to a definite offer.2 These two combine to create certainty that a contract has been formed, for, as in Scammell v Ouston (1941),3 "if an agreement is uncertain on some important issue...the courts will hold there is no contract."4 Following this, the elements
"International business: the new bottom line" Written by Bruce Kogut for Foreign Policy, 1998 - Summary of the article.
Greg Jenkins International Business Research Article December 17, 2003 "International business: the new bottom line." Written by Bruce Kogut for Foreign Policy, 1998 SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLE Bruce Kogut is a professor of management and codirector of the Reginald H. Jones center at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. In his article, "International business: the new bottom line" which he writes for Foreign Policy he looks at the importance of firms to pursue international business and the factors that help shape what doing business in that manor is all about. In the world today, multinational corporations are more likely to guide foreign policy than follow it. This is evident because according to Kogut, they tend to dominate trade and world production, where international business focuses on how managers deal with their employees in the very different cultural marketplaces. Kogut then breaks the article into sections; why invest in another country, what it takes to be multinational, recognizing competitive advantage, technology and its life cycle, and the global division of mental labor. It is important to look at each of these segments to understand why international business is the new bottom line. The first reason according to Kogut to invest in another country deals with the differences in the rates of return to capital among countries. This helps to

"Interpretive sociology has suggested that pupil's progress at school is the outcome of processes of interaction between pupils and teachers".
"Interpretive sociology has suggested that pupil's progress at school is the outcome of processes of interaction between pupils and teachers" Education provision can vary and influence. Schools vary in the quality of staff and the behaviour of pupil's. Children are influenced by good schools which depend on teacher's qualities. However, most of the studies which focus on the school tend to be interactionist, the relationship between teachers and pupils and there are many theories. Interactionist studies tend to focus on what teacher's do to pupil's and may underestimate there ability. The teacher's attitudes play a part in working class children underachieving. The 'Hidden Curriculum' is everything in school apart from the formal exams and curriculum. It is everything that is learnt but not taught like teacher's attitudes, streaming, pupils' attitudes, uniform, out of school activities, this is a main factor between the relationship of teacher's and pupil's. Therefore the teacher's attitudes play a part, why some children are underachieving at school. Hargreaves et al. did research in to teacher's attitudes in the hidden curriculum. He found that teacher's labelled pupil's into stereotypical groups. He found they followed criteria of labelling that covered seven areas: appearance, conform to discipline, ability and enthusiasm for work, how likeable they are the
"Investment is always likely to be more volatile than other elements of "Investment is always likely
"Investment is always likely to be more volatile than other elements of "Investment is always likely The volatility of the level of investment is one of the most repeatedly observed features of most economies. Although the fluctuations of an economy over time affect all of the variables that are used by economists to show the current state of prosperity (for example national income, production, employment, prices, etc.), the level of investment has been noted for being particularly volatile. In discussing whether this will always be the case, various hypotheses and theorems regarding the behaviour of investment and its relationship to other elements of the economy will have to be considered. The first problem that has to be surmounted is the issue regarding what investment actually is. An economy's resources can either be consumed immediately (consumption), or added to the fixed capital stock in order to use at a later date. This is a basic definition of investment. It is worth noting in passing that both consumption and investment form part of aggregate demand. The level of investment in an economy is usually defined as the expenditure on fixed assets for either replacing old equipment or adding to stock. This is known as "Gross Domestic Fixed Capital Formation" (GDFCF). Unfortunately, the composition of GDFCF is somewhat arbitrary in practice as only investment in the
