Over 3,000 Red Cross volunteers hurried to rescue and relief efforts. This was the most expensive disaster response in Canadian history They are just examples of the kind of support the NGO provides. The Canadian red cross have been very successful throughout history as mentioned before. In 2009 The Canadian Red Cross celebrated its official 100th anniversary.

But during this economic recession, college students have been having a difficult time staying in the college path, especially working class students. The lack of moral support from their families prevents these unfortunate students to finish their college education. The increase of college tuition and limited financial aid are causing students to go into debt, making them hesitant whether they should keep studying or not. Also it’s preventing students from picking needed major but because the low paycheck they are not sure if they will be able to be sustained. But college drop outs also can able be due to the unequal college preparation given in high schools.
What it means to be Canadian Every day, Canada welcomes hundreds of new babies & children into our country. Although most newborns at the time do not understand how lucky they are to be brought into this country with things such as free health care, great patriotic spirit, & thousands of safe environments to be able to grow & learn in as they go from being a young child, to elderly adult. Being Canadian means that you are entitled to many things, one of them being free health care. People of any age are able to see a doctor at any time of the day, whether they’re dying from a disease they can’t fight off on their own, or they’re worried about a cold that’s stuck around just a little too long. Canadians pay a certain amount
The father was an successful accountaint, the mother was a home keeper and the son did well in school. They were surround by the people who loved them , and were able to practice their religion more frequently at a Hindu temple. Moving to Canada they lost many of their fourtnes. Their eco map represents that the parents no longer have time to make friends because they are too busy working. That is why only Ikram has friends, because he was able to make two while attending school.
Making sure they do their homework before sleeping or playing with friends and making them get up on time to go to school. After I came to the U.S, the strange environment brings more difficulties of study and daily life to me. Chinese high schools need to do much better job for teaching students how to be mature and to take responsibility for themselves, so students will be able to manage their own lives when they grow up. Parents in China prepare daily life and study problems very well for their children during the high school. They manage all of the life tasks and even help their children apply to colleges, but then, when their children go to other countries to attend colleges; those children like me are unable to handle those necessary tasks by ourselves.
This is very big accomplishment for CNIB because by providing these opportunities and make its patients (visually impaired people) fell like that they are like other human beings. CNIB has been serving more than seventeen thousand clients and has more than ten thousand volunteers. It has also made it possible for visually impaired people to travel free; this includes free air, train and bus tickets. CNIB policies are that they should educate children or youth who are visually impaired; Canadians who are print disabled should have the same level of library service as their sighted peers. Lastly, they want to provide all the services that a visually impaired person needs.
In the article “What’s Wrong With Vocational School” written by Charles Murray, he gives his opinion about the unnecessary of four year college’s program compares to vocational training. I find this article have some very interesting ideas which I both agree and disagree I agree with his statement in the fourth paragraph about how many students attend college because their parents are paying for it and it is what they supposed to do after their finish high school. Many students do not have any real goals or any ideas of what they are going to do for their life, but going to a four year college is an obligation because their parents have spent so much money for them through high school, and now college. Automatically, their job is to do well in school and finish with a four year degree so that they can be prepared for their future without the supporting from their parents. This is a common sense that many of us all know as an adult; yet not all young people understand this fact.
I began as a volunteer nurse, doing free health screenings and vaccinations for the uninsured and undocumented members of our community on the weekends. The clinic was designed as free health care facility where local residents who do not have medical insurance or the ability to pay for medical care can be treated. In 2007, “20/20” did a special about us and we have been on a roll since then. Back then, free health clinics still made the news. Rock stars like Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen were our benefactors.
Recently, English education is booming.Mainly, learners will go to English training agent to improve their English.Some people prefer learning English in China; whereas, some people choose to study abroad.While both learning English in China and learning English in Canada are effective ways to improve learner's English, a distinction can be drawn between them in terms of costs and oral English study. In China, students learn English in high school or university where they are given numerous multiple choice questions, but a little practice on speaking.However, it is also difficult for students to find partners to speak English with as most of their peers are dedicated to doing exercises in order to get good grades.Furthermore, there are very limited opportunities for students to acquire native English pronunciation because most teachers are chinese, and some basic skills such as the company reads will not be taught.Another aspect of learning English in China is the cost.Due to large capacity of English classes, institutions charge relatively few money for education.Furthermore, as English is one of the mandatory subjects, some parts of tuition are covered with governmental education fund.In contrast, learning English in Canada allows for better opportunities to learn and practice spoken English.Since students immerse themselves in the English Speaking environment, they are forced to use English at any moment.Even if they go shopping or travel around, they have to communicate with native speakers.On the contrary, native speakers who have the perfect accent are also useful models for English learners to imitate from.Another distinction is that learning English in Canada costs learners a considerable amount of money.During the period of learning English in Canada, students must pay much more tuition than studying English in China, as well as much living expenses
Sally Ferrell’s claim that the military targets rural and poor neighborhoods is understandable, unfortunately it is not correct. Recruiters are required to contact all students in their assigned areas. Most assigned areas consist of not only lower class neighborhoods, but also very affluent ones. In the upper class schools, the students usually have more options available to them for higher education directly out of high school. This is due to parents that can easily afford to spend thousands of dollars out of pocket for a four year degree.
