Wondering how divorce affects children? Here's what you need to know, from Judith Wallerstein, an internationally recognized authority on the effects of divorce on children and the co-author of "Surviving The Breakup: How Children And Parents Cope...
Individuals from stigmatized groups choose to present themselves in ways that counteract the specific stereotypes and prejudices associated with their group, according to a new study published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.
“People often think of prejudice as a simple, single phenomenon — general dislike for members of other groups — but recent research suggests that there are actually multiple, distinct types of prejudice,” says graduate student Rebecca Neel, who conducted the research with her advisor Steven Neuberg and post-doctoral scholar Samantha Neufeld at Arizona State University.
I can see that prejudice can be shown in many ways. For example, prejudice against people who are obese, are a certain race or are a certain religion. All these make people think that they are different from each other and treat them in a different way. I think that prejudice can hurt someone's feelings and they maybe emotionally unstable after those prejudices from everyone. I think that this is also very unfair as you may be treating somebody in a way that they do not deserve it. I wonder what really cause people to prejudice others. I also wonder who started prejudice.
The Labour leader Ed Miliband today called for an overhaul of housing and employment policy – and a concerted drive to teach English to recent immigrants – in an effort to improve integration and reduce the strains of a multi-ethnic society.
He admitted that the last Government made serious mistakes over immigration, underestimating the capacity of some communities to adapt to new arrivals. He also conceded that it had blundered by adopting an open-doors policy for new arrivals from the East European countries that joined the EU in 2004.
Under his proposals, Labour would expect migrants to learn English, tackle landlords who cram newcomers into overcrowded houses and ban recruitment agencies from seeking workers only from particular countries or ethnic groups...
I can see that Ed Miliband is trying to promote a multi-ethnic society and have more immigrants inGreat Britain. He believes they should be able to speak English to ensure effective communication and everyone understands so that both citizens and foreigners can be treated fairly. I think he does not want separation between different communities in the country hence it makes him a good influence for everyone to follow. I wonder if he will succeed in convincing everyone to speak English instead of their foreign languages and accept one another's difference.
I can see that fathers who have their own business will like to let their own son to take the lead role in their company because they trust their son will give in their best to carry on with their business even when they decide to retire and would obviously hand over their companies to their child. In this article, the father and the son had tried to cope with the challenges of running a business together and offer advice for other entrepreneurial families. I think that both Rick and Jeff is very helpful and thoughtful as they even suggested some suggestions to help others to overcome the challenges they might meet in their business. After having successful business, they tried to help others who are not as successful. After reading this article, I feel that every child should learn from Jeff because one day it might be our turn to handle a big company like him. I wonder why it is normally guys who inherit from father’s business.
Bin He, Ph.D., leads a team of scientists and engineers who are working on a device that allows human subjects to control the flight of small, remote-controlled helicopters using only their minds. The researchers believe this technology has the potential to restore mobility and independence to individuals suffering from neuromuscular disorders and paralysis, and could enhance the natural motor functions of pilots, surgeons and ordinary citizens.
I can see that there are many different ways to improve life as technology is getting more advanced. With technology, people now can even find out about their future. Bin He, Ph.D, leads a team of scientists and engineers who are working on a device that allows human to control it by mind. I think that this invention is really interesting and useful because things can be easily done without the use of hands which is suitable for people who are super lazy to move. I wonder if this device can be further improvised to help the disabled people to make their life easier.
When Gregory Wade left Research In Motion’s Asia Pacific headquarters here last fall, the logical thing to do might have been to pack up his family and head home to his native shore of British Columbia.
Instead, the eight-year expat joined an equity firm and continued preaching the economic miracle of Singapore, coaching Canadian firms looking to set up shop in the region as a vice-president for The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore.
“You will sense a vibe of growth, of energy, a sense of entrepreneurship and the desire and interest to create new and innovative products and services,” said Mr. Wade, who is now managing director of mobility at InflexionPoint Acquisition Corp. “I didn’t get that same vibe in Canada, regardless of locale.”
For a city-state with no resources, limited land and a small population, creating the explosive growth and development of the past half-century has meant running it like a corporation – using highly trained, highly paid leaders, inviting the world’s best and brightest to its work force with an open-door policy, and with a near-zero tolerance for dissent among the masses.
The result is a planned, modern economy with efficient public services, an educated population and a per-capita share of gross domestic product of more than $60,000 (U.S.), the highest in Southeast Asia. Singapore ranks No. 2 on the World Economic Forum’s global competitiveness rankings.
Today, as Singapore nears the 50th anniversary of its independence, the original economic miracle is slowing. Hit hard by the Asian financial crisis, the dot-com bust, the outbreak of SARS in 2003 and then global recession in 2008, the city-state is at an economic turning point.
I can see that theSingapore’s economy is getting better and better slowly however, recently it had met some crisis. There are many different crises from other affecting countries especially in Europe which might affect Singapore economy. Even though there are lots of crisis happening inSingapore, many companies and organization from all over the world are still willing to set up and develop in Singapore. That makes me think that we are very lucky to have those countries to help us. However, I think that Singapore should be independent and do something to help itself despite of all those limitations. I wonder what will happen if other countries did not help Singapore.
