The average number of time the termites spent on the red ink pen circle was much greater than the amount of time the termites spent on the red ink sharpie marker circle. It can be concluded that termites would rather stay on the red pen circle than on the red sharpie ink circle. Reasons why the termites spent a lower average amount of time on the circle drawn in red sharpie ink can be based on many factors. One of them being that the chemical make-up of the red ink in sharpie markers does not agree with the termites. Another factor may include that the scent of sharpie marker was too strong for the termites to endure.
The language “Killer Cars” and “Death machines” suggests that the car itself is more responsible of death than the person driving it therefore positioning the readers to consider the safety of their own cars. The consistent use of generalisations; “4WD owners take more risk because they feel safer” and “...city owners of 4WD owners are less community minded and less charitable than other drivers” with the accompanying visual positions the readers to think of times when they have been disrespected by 4WD owners and as a result instils a sense of resentment as small car owners in juxtaposition with large car owners are interpreted to be powerless and thus are ignored. Not only does Masters blame 4WD owners of causing deaths but also attempts to evoke concern in the audience and raises issues in the misuse of 4WDs. The case study of a young girls death, clearly dismisses the issue of 4WDs being a hazard to society, rather than relying on statistics alone. The fact that the incident occurred at a school raises concern in the audience of motorists, in
* Begging and drinking alcohol in public. * Dumping rubbish in the streets, abounding cars. * Vandalism including fly tipping and graffiti. Public perception of crime The types of behaviour identified above can be make the public very fearful of crime and disorder in a public environment, and give the perception that crime is everywhere and that we should fear crime. In most cases our fear of crime is much higher that the likelihood of us actually being a victim of crime.
Instead of an estimated decrease in violence, crime and alcohol consumption, it led to an increase in at least violence and crime. When people could not gain access to alcohol the way they were used to, they had to find an alternate source. This led to a huge black market for alcohol and the start for one of America's most infamous gangsters: Al Capone. The alcohol supplied was however no longer produced under legitimate supervision, and had often been spiked with poison and chemicals, which led to an increase in deaths from alcoholic poisoning. The huge black market for alcohol controlled by crime organizations grew so large that many of the criminal groups were able to build their empires mainly on profits from illegal alcohol.
This assumption was noted by the Virtuous One, who according to the text, “insists that America’s fuel consumption is somewhat responsible for the enmity towards us and the Middle East”(Muller, G. &Wiener, H. 2009, pg.154). The authors tone here can be heard as one of judgment by the “Virtuous One”. “How can they can they (SUV drivers) call themselves citizens of the United States, peacemakers, and driver such big gas guzzlers?” “They are the reason for the high gas prices”. No one likes to be judged, and Hochswender uses this as an advantage to his claim. He intentionally uses September 11th as an ethical (ethos) appeal.
Like a car crash we are accidently placed in situations everyday that bring out our own stereotypes towards others that we sometimes do not even realize. This movie shows how people can love to their own, yet be cruel to other cultures. The movie follows an African American detective’s story while following other cultures stories around him at the same time. The film constantly shows races of all kinds using stereotypes in confrontation with others during their daily lives. The film points out such stereotypes as, black people stealing, Asians being bad drivers, Hispanics participating in gang violence, Arabs being terrorists, and White people thinking that
The world’s Muslims differ substantially not only in their religious views but also in their political and social orientation, including their conceptions of government, law, and human rights; their social agenda (in particular, women’s rights and the content of education); and their propensity for violence. The defining characteristics of the main tendencies in Islam are summarized in a typology that we apply on a region-by-region basis. This methodology allows for a more precise classification of groups and for comparisons across regions and allows us to identify in a systematic way the sectors with which the United States and its allies can find common ground to promote democracy and stability and counter the influence of extremist and violent groups. Having begun to lay the foundations for what could be called a “religio-political map,” we explore the main cleavages in the Muslim world, primarily those between the Sunni and Shi’a branches of Islam and between the Arab and the non-Arab Muslim worlds and those deriving from membership in subnational communities, tribes, and clans.
To me it is dangerous to use your head and neck to ram someone in order to knock them down. People think that racing is dangerous because of the speeds, look at how many football players were paralyzed this year and even killed compared to racing. Race cars are actually way safer than regular street cars. Now that I have given my opinion, I hope I can make a point without sounding rude or ignorant. My feelings are strong for racing like theirs is for other sports.
When applied to the representation of conflicts, such perspectives frequently invoke notions of ethnic identity and nationalist mythology, thereby highlighting important historical issues of national formation, cultural bias, and international and intercultural relations. Finally, the nature of war reporting and image- making reveals much concerning the influence of politics and social authority on media representations: the nature of government/press relationships, the role of political con- sensus and dissent in steering media agendas, the filtering and fixing of images as his- torical evidence, and the social establishment of photographs as cultural icons,
These incidents are reported and the cops are quickly fired and charges for there crime. But this is just another way that civil rights are being fought in America. In other countries, people have a lot less rights then we do. In Libya a communist leader was dominating the civilians. Recently those people have rose up and started to fight back.
