Everybody has different values. So with that in mind, conflict will occur when individuals or nations have a lack of acceptance and understanding of these different values. Conflicts with differing interests occur when individuals or nations combat for their personal or nation goals as a whole, often ignoring the organizational goals and well-being, or other nation’s goals and well-being. Scarce resources can cause a lot of conflict. Especially between two countries.
What outrages you? Judging people and prejudice outrages me most. Not only prejudice pertaining to ethnic background, but also prejudice in the way of being smaller is better, nerds are loser and etc. I cannot stand to see another person being picked on because of the way they look or act. I believe that no one has the right to judge the person on the right or to the left of you.
Mark Bauerline says “You guys don’t know anything” to today’s generation but because we don’t have to search in library for books or articles that we can view online does that make us incompetent or unable to comprehend them? No, it just means we have resources that save us time of hours of searching. College has not gotten easier to get into let alone afford but teens in this generation are holding 5.0 GPA’s and getting accepted to numerous ivy leagues with scholarships. Our minds are neither narrow nor dumb. Every generation has flaws and ours maybe the lack of motivation due to technology but with this flaw it allows us to excel becoming more intelligent and opening our minds to realms not even thought of.
Establishing an annual Buy Nothing Day punishes everyone for the few idiots’ problems. Not everyone has a problem with consumerism. Creating a day that ‘helps’ people tackle their overconsumption problems only helps a minority of the population. And overall, it is not the governments’ job to monitor citizens’ personal problems.
“Hiring Based on Age” While reading, “Why Older Workers are Better Workers” by Dave Bernard published in the U.S. News & World Report LP (2012) and “Millennials accused of lax work ethic say it’s not all about 9-to-5” by Ian Shapira published in the Washington Post (2010), I discovered that Employers are indecisive when it comes to hiring youthful workers vs. aged workers. Youthful workers are indeed full of energy and eager to learn while aged workers tend to be more experienced, relaxed, and set in their ways. Age should not be a determining factor when hiring new employees. First of all, it is discrimination. Second of all youthful workers and aged workers, both have something to bring to the table in terms of personalities,
Within an hour I was oversaturated in negativity. Many Hispanics, Blacks and Whites in the community were either not interested in registering to vote, or thought it was a waste of time. In particular, I was able to gather an opinion from a young Hispanic male in his thirties, who thought the whole voting system was “rigged.” His theory was that government officials in Washington chose the president each term. Other Hispanics were jaded and expressed that their vote would not change anything, and therefore did not count. The situation became tense when an older white male interjected and expressed to the Hispanics listening to my pitch that it was their fault that he could not find a job.
Eighteen-year-olds can run for public office, vote, serve in the military and get married. So, the lower-drinking-age question has to be considered in the context of all those other decisions," Jordan said. "My concern and that of many of the other presidents who signed the initiative is that we aren't doing our students a favor by avoiding this. Saying that keeping the minimum age at 21 is reducing highway deaths is ignoring the bigger problem." Dr. George
However, it is not true that every individual exercises the right to vote. Although all of individuals have the equal right to vote, their will for participation are not the same because each of them has different stances and interest for a vote depend on their age, races, partisanship, or some other factors of elections. Age group effects on a vote have become big issues many times; especially, young voters sometimes greatly influenced on votes. In general, young voters, in the 18 to 29 age group, tend to be not interested in voting because many of them just want to care about their own life rather than politics or society. Therefore, older voters are relatively more encouraged on a typical vote.
18-year olds barely have any time and are under gargantuan amounts of stress, forcing them to do community service will hurt their general well being. I agree with my opponent, Community Service is a great thing if done from the heart. But, forcing careless teenagers to work around an issue they do not care about is not going to help the community rather their sloppy and negligent work may do the exact opposite. Community service is supposed to be voluntary and if a person volunteers to do community service that is all fine and well but forcing students to do something that they do not care about nor want to do will not help anyone. Community service should come from the heart, it shouldn't be forced.
