Sternheimer feels it is these other over looked factors that are truly the cause of “young killers” (210). These factors include personal traits, background and family. Sternheimer also blames politician’s claims for the rise of concern for video game violence (209). She briefly writes of law suits on video game producers and points out none have ever been won (210). Sternheimer wants us to question why there are “young killers” (210) arising from suburban families who are considered by most to be decent, well
Americans want to be accepting of foreigners, but the fear of offending a person of another race sometimes prevents them from starting an interaction. Dumas disguises this masterful emotional manipulation as a witty rant. The author describes her struggle between being called Firoozeh and Julie in an intensely comedic way: “I felt
I would definitely say that Comedy Central's Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report are part of the "media" that affects people’s opinion. These television shows are a way to provide comedic relief to the issues our economy faces; however, these shows still have an impact of how the viewer will understand an issue at hand. It is very difficult for anyone to be completely unbiased and with constantly hearing other people’s opinion through the media. We cannot make a decision of how “we” feel about the topic. Thus, democracy and a fair voting group become tainted.
It is beneficial for entrepreneurs to think more along the lines of all product and service aspects instead of in silos and just thinking about producing “products” alone or “services.” That concept is imperative for entrepreneurs to understand as customer service can be added as an additional component as well to a physical product. That will make the product more attractive. Developments in technology related to current products allow for room for new service concepts to grow, which is
Other races, do take jokes far. For example, if the word “chink” was taken offensively, I am sure when people other than Asians have, what they like to say “chinky eyes” that would be taken offensively to an Asian standing around or hearing that. Its true, the word might have been created to harm us, but it has done the complete opposite. Summary-Christine Leong-Being a Chink Christine Leong wrote, “ Being a Chink” to express the derogatory term, chink, means to her. She describes how the term, although intended to be harmful, is often used among her friends.
It said that “Vargas is incredibly brave to risk everything he has accomplished in this country in order tell the truth and to shine yet another but still much needed light on the pressing need for comprehensive immigration reform in this country” (O’Connor 388-389). This quote mean that because he is an immigrant doesn’t mean he stop reaching his American dream striving to what he want to become that’s why without people like him our country will be poorer. Esther Cepeda believes that Jose Vargas is in wrong doing for being an undocumented. It say in her essay “it’s almost impossible to not be deeply disturbed by self-promotion disguised as sacrifice, the blatant criminal activity and distasteful comparison to the experiences of African American in their struggle for equality” (Cepeda 391). This quote is trying to say is that there are Americans with the struggle that José Vargas has that didn’t get the same equality that he has.
“The admission culture of selective colleges today is characterized by a rising degree of deception and –no doubt, unintended –cruelty” (Delbanco 117). The selectivity of colleges, especially those of Ivy Leagues, can be hard to put into comparison with other colleges and universities. Ivy Leagues run on their own system, and no one can tell them how to do things because they have been established in America the longest. Colleges do not do this on purpose; it is just the way the system works. “Recruited athletes, alumni children, faculty children, members of historically underrepresented minority groups, and ‘development cases’ have an advantage, and by the time they have all been accounted for, the number of slots remaining can be extremely small compared with the ever-growing applicant pool” (Delbanco 117).
However there are still many contemporary issues concerning consumers, in particular marketing and technology (if needed). Marketing is a way companies create interest in their product, and the internet has led to the growth of fraudulent behavior, most notably SPAM and the Pyramid Schemes. Marketing and advertising through misleading advertising, offering prizes and gifts, the use of bait advertising although illegal is a very large problem. Although the ACCC does prosecute false and misleading advertising eg ACCC vs Nissan motors, they have only limited resources and a lack of severe penalties and as a consequence many people continue to break the law. Similarly, technology has had a significant impact on how laws have had to be created and reformed in order to protect the rights of consumers.
“Performance enhancing drugs in sport should be legalised.” Tim Chappell won the initial vote with 86% of students voting against drugs in sport. Steve Olivier started the debate by stating the five main arguments against his case which were that using drugs is against the nature of sport, drugs are unfair, it is unnatural, loss of freewill and causes harm. He continued by breaking down each point and highlighting its flaws. His first point stated that drugs were not against the nature of sport because sport is already an unnatural practice. He then went on to argue that sport is already economically unfair and poorer nations are disadvantaged.
