Noah Carpenter & Scott Burma Ms. Smith English III AP – 1st 22 April 2015 The Horizontal World The interior of the United States has long been considered generic. The land is flat, the roads are straight, and trees are rare. This lack of diversity creates an undeniable sense of isolation. Debra Marquart’s 2006 memoir on the area, The Horizontal World, draws upon this perception of the region. Marquart discusses the characteristics of the upper Midwest in order to illustrate it as a sterile region.
There are so many reasons as to which juveniles can talk themselves into joining gangs. Reasons having to do with family problems or even involvement in the gangs, to friends being there, making money fast and having a sense of “security” when with his or her gang members. One of the main reasons why kids partake in gang activity is because of a neglected feeling from their family. “If young people aren’t getting positive attention from parents, joining a gang certainly provides lots of negative attention. Youth who are angry at a parent may join a gang to shock or be defiant toward the parent”.
Many of the immigrants, not knowing the way America worked, didn’t stray too far from the East Coast and moved into areas filled with people of similar languages, traditions, and beliefs. When they did interact with American citizens the immigrants were typically assaulted verbally and had to deal with many instances of discrimination. However, ward and city bosses realized their importance and began recruiting them fresh off of the boats trying to gain they’re political votes. This tactic began to affect the political scene of the major American cities as whoever gained the most immigrant votes began to gain control. The substantial increase in population due to immigration that occurs during this time goes on to affect the nation in positive and negative ways.
In this interview session, he is searching for ways to better manage his finances. Initially, he isn’t able to recognize places he could make changes. As the interview goes on, he comes up with several ways to decrease his monthly expenses. Although it’s pricy for him, Vance isn’t interested in moving to a place with cheaper rent. Although the counselor wants to encourage him to live elsewhere, she doesn’t because she recognizes that she must focus on what is important to the client.
The difference between me people in leaderships positions are salary, and their lack of brains." (Jack Parsons, personal communication, August 2007). My mother's response was: "They tend to do for the well off or whites better than the lower class or minorities except for welfare and in that respect blacks rule." (Kathleen Riddell, personal communication, August 2007). If you could resolve any inequities within your community, what would you change?
In the early day of radio and TV broadcasting of baseball, many owners saw its introduction as a threat to attendances; this was the same with soccer also. Soon after their disputes with radio and TV broadcasters, owners of baseball and soccer franchises saw the media as not only another source of revenue but also as an effective means of promoting interest in their teams. The creation of ESPN in 1979 combined with the growth of TVs in households from the 50s to the 90s contributed to the cable sports boom in America. This helped MLB’s annual TV revenue increase from $1.195million in 1956 to $365million in 1990. Similar events were seen with soccer franchises however the revenue from media is always unequally distributed between the top flight teams and lower league teams.
Children from poverty, who experience hopelessness, and who are bored and are looking for nice clothes and long to have money think being in a gang can earn them lots of pocket money. Gangs make their money by dealing drugs, forcing people to pay for protection. Television also plays a part in the role to the road of gangs. Many shows on television glorify gangs and are often told from the gang members’ perspective that depicts lots of violence. Teenagers long for acceptance and always think that being in a gang is a solution to all their
In particular, Section 2, freedom of expression, does not state specifically the degree to which it can be used. Meanwhile, it is mentioned in Section 15 (1) that every citizen has the right to equal protection from discrimination before and under the law; Zundel violates this section of the Charter since he was allowed to publish a book based on his personal prejudice and attack on an identifiable group. Similarly, Keegstra, an Alberta high school teacher, denied the existence of the Holocaust and promoted his ideas to the classroom; but unlike Zundel, he was denied his freedom of expression even though Zundel was just as discriminatory towards the Jews. This is an example of the inconsistencies with a liberal view of the Charter- Section 2 most notably- and so, with a more conservative view, certain limits would be placed on the individual's rights to eliminate ambiguity, confusion, and contradictions in the law as much as possible; this in turn will give people a clearer understanding as to how far they can use these rights to defend themselves so that there is no abuse of rights. Not only that, but similar cases will also be treated equally.
And they chose not to tell anyone of Matthew's whereabouts. Every punch, every kick, every action was the result of some decision. And even if every decision was made “in the moment” it still does not relieve the killers of their moral and legal culpability. Their sentencing was well deserved, and will probably never be freemen again. "The Laramie Project" tells the story in a journalistic manner, since it is assembled from real interviews and court testimonies.
The fast tracking of Asian officers, is in some people’s opinion clearly wrong, some members of our society believe it would not be acceptable to fast track a woman with brown hair because her hair is brown, nor is it fair to fast track any person because their skin is brown, whether the quota requires filling or not. Of course the other side of the argument is that there is no shortage of brown haired women applying to join the police force but where ethnic minorities are concerned there is a shortage. If seven percent of the population are from ethnic backgrounds it stands to reason, in a fair society that seven percent of those from ethnic backgrounds would account for seven percent of police force. Effects Some officers openly admitted stopping “Paki’s” because in their experience Asians tend not to wear seatbelts, but if all you stop are Asian then this will forever be true. The main effect of what some members of society believe is discrimination is that those from ethnic backgrounds would probably not want to help the police with their investigations never mind be part of such an organisation.
