Today's society consists of a variety of behaviors. What makes America, our home country, special is that it gives plenty of room for expanding a student's knowledge, abilities and strengths. In Communist countries, like China, it is believed that uniform was the best way of handling things. For example, everyone moved at the same pace in school. There were no honors, AP or extra study classes for gifted. Most chinese students, starting at elementary age wore school uniforms.
People knows what is the idea of witchcraft, but they don’t know the true meaning of it. Modern-Day Witch is the act of unfairly looking for and punishing people who are accused of having opinions that are believed to be dangerous or evil. Most people think that witch hunt isn’t real and a myth that still uncover. It is just an urban legend that have many speculations that are falsely untrue. Unfortunately, these belief set an alarming perspective that still occurred around the world where innocent people are attacked and killed accused of being a witchcraft.
What is the first thing you think of when someone says the word "school"? People usually say stress, grades, brain numb, maybe even stupid or boring, but consider the reason why students may say that, although they are told many times that education is a privilege. Does this mean that our schooling system in the United States may be too loose on pressuring our students into academic achievement?
Prison has changed a lot of people, whether it be good or bad. Often people who have recently got out of prison recently find it hard to get back to their old lives, because they've made a terrible mistake. The information I'm going to share is about how inmates react to society and the world around them.
Dystopian novels have a tendency to highlight the concerns of current events. A strong example of this would be the wage gap and class system between people and societies. This is a prominent issue in the United States, where in the upper and middle class Americans prosper immensely, and the lower class is strongly limited. In an article by Richard V. Reeves titled “The dangerous separation of the American upper middle class,” the disturbing gaps between class are made apparent.
American Dream is the ideal that every US citizen should have an equal rights and opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative. This whole term that was used is totally a lie. Many US citizen disagree with this terminology because not everybody have equal opportunity and rights when it comes to career and basically life. American Dream wasn’t meant for everyone.
In this day and age, there seem to be a multitude of things that divide people. Religious differences, political beliefs, cultural backgrounds, racism, war, and so many other factors stand in the way of humans being unified. These differences seem to be a fact of life, because they have played a role in influencing human culture and interactions since the dawn of our species. It might seem like this will continue for as long as humans exist, but the simple fact is that it won’t.
Apparently, you have to create conflict in the story-line, otherwise your game will never sell, and violence is a really easy way to create conflict. Violence also taps into a primal urge in all humans that makes us pay attention.
Also, the gamers get an adrenaline rush. It’s noradrenaline, testosterone, and cortisol that are released in your body. They are stress hormones, and it can be really fun to be stressed if you know you’re safe.
Recently, I watched the Doll test video posted below, and thought it was very shocking. They did a test where they made a diverse group of children choose whether the white/black doll was good/bad. The majority of the kids chose the white doll as the good doll. I believe that society has a lot to do with how a child is raised and what his/her morals are. Society creates an image that black is bad and white is good. This image is created from a long history of African American slaves being sold, whipped, and beaten. The image creates an idea that African Americans are inferior to Caucasians.
I have thoroughly enjoyed learning more about culture in my Literature class. To me imparticular, I was most excited to learn about branding, and fashion. I found out that in these industries, it can be hard to stay on top.To get their name out there, companies will go to extremes such as photoshop to make their products give a false hope. Unfortunately that's not the only downfall. Advertising also offers a perfect reality which is not in any way practical. An example of this could be a toothpaste commercial.

Emotional appeal is used from time to time, to get one’s emotions to overpower the mind. The most affective appeal is considered to be directed towards the fear, the fear in the body is so strong it may do as it pleases before the mind can think the situation through. As you would understand that the public health would consist of society itself and the people in society. The emotional appeal was not just used in todays society, it goes as far back to war and it may even connect to witchcraft.
Today we live in a world oppressed by an unspoken code. I refer to the code as the flawed rules of society, and these "rules" are more of a social code. As a society, people always judge or shun people who are "different" and this is because they don't follow these "rules" and they choose to be their own unique person. These rules oppress individuality and spontaneousness.
Revenge is a prominent theme in the novel, The Tempest by William Shakespeare. Unfortunately, there are many current events that encompass this theme as well. On July 11, 2014 an act of brutal revenge was taken place in Northern India. A girl was raped as payback for her brother's criminal actions. Wall Street Journal reports the teen's brother was accused of trying to sexually assault the wife of Birju Pasi. Out of retaliation, Pasi raped the fourteen year old sister.
Soldier’s Home by Ernest Hemingway is about a soldier named Harold Krebs who comes home to a place he felt he no longer belonged in, and rather than accepting him for his new self after the war, everyone wanted him the way he was before. They expected the same person to return, because after all, they were the same people as when he left. He returns many years after the First World War, and struggles with re-integrating himself into a post-war society. I've been wondering if Hemingway wrote this short story using Krebs’ life as a replica of his own.
Throughout the novel Native Son written by Richard Wright, Bigger Thomas and Bessie Mears are both separated from a white society due to the dark color of their skin which motivates them to also alienate themselves because of the great amount of exclusion that they have experienced since the day that they were born.
I am currently reading the book Lord of the Flies. This book interested me because I hear it come up constantly in conversations between avid readers. It's been very interesting so far because these group of young boys are stranded on an island and are having to figure out how to survive and function together. And, of course, how to have fun. I am curious to see as to how conflicts will arise between different groups of the boys and what kinds of kids will rise up and become more leaders of the group as their time on the island lasts longer and longer.
Child neglect is one of the worst things that can happen to anybody in their childhood. Although child neglect is difficult to officially define; in my words it’s basically is the failure to providing the basic needs for a child and care for them. This is the most common and most frequent type of child abuse. It can cause negative long term psychological and physical effects such as substance abuse, self harm, mental/emotional/behavioral issues, severe depression, and many other types of traumatizing effects.
a. The question I am interested is: What effect do the violent images and messages portrayed in T.V., movies, video games, etc. have on today's society? I am interested in this topic because I am lover of media with action and violence and I don't feel like it has any affect on me but I have always been curious if it actually does without me realizing it.
My Question is what are the consequences of the declining family size in developed countries, and who are the outliers in this trend. I'm interested in this question because I am from a large family and I know this is becoming less and less common in developed and developing nations the world over. I also know that there are huge problems with the skyrocketing global population, but I want to know if the problems of a declining family size are significant. I also want to know who is still having lots of kids in developing nations despite being in a society with declining birth rates.
Charlie Gordon, mentally disabled, has a lot of issues throughout his childhood until his manhood years where he is mocked, taunted, and pitied upon for being retarded. Until one day, he finds out he could volunteer for an experiment that may or may not make him smart. For a couple of months, he does what he’s asked to and eventually books a genius in the books case. He is able to grasp concepts easily, knows 20 languages and has a broader knowledge of many fields unlike the numerous professors he talks to. He is immensely happy with all he knows, however he slowly takes in self realization.
Girls wear pink; boys wear blue. Girls play dolls; boys play trucks. Girls are sweet; boys are tough. Things along this line might be what you’ve heard throughout history. Though we still have quite a ways to go, constricting gender roles have evolved greatly from the inhibiting, masculinist society of the middle ages, to the “perfect” families of the 1950’s, and through the social turmoil of the 60’s and 70’s into the modern day.
