Othello comparison
Othello comparison William Shakespeare’s play: Othello from the 1600s and Jeoffery Sax’s television film from 2001, both texts convey and explore gender inequality through treating women as objects. Despite the societal difference of four hundred years both texts reveal misogynistic intentions against women. Correspondingly, Sax decides to use the theme of jealousy to boost the contextual relevance from the film to the play, he uses a Ben Jago whose motive is to destroy Othello’s reputation beca

A call for foreign intervention A Call for Foreign Intervention The world as we know it is a tumultuous place of anarchy, malevolence, and controversy occasionally inhabited by able intermediaries and keepers of the peace. Within societies, due to what appear as irreconcilable differences, periods of discrepancy arise. These divergences sometimes can result in bloodshed, war, harsh economic recession, or callous purging of the basic rights of man. Under the milder of these crises, outside involv

The importance of sport
The importance of sport Participation in sports is extremely important, and should be encouraged much more. Children and young people in particular need to do sport so that they develop good habits that they can continue into adulthood. The main benefits of sport are improved health and fitness, and the development of social and communication skills. With more than a third of adults in the USA being classed as obese, and many more being overweight, it has never been more important to participate

Developing human capital through education: Challenges and Solutions
Developing human capital through education: Challenges and Solutions As India moves towards being a world economic power, despite the economic slowdown, the low standards of education raise a legitimate concern about the means through which India will manage to sustain this growth without developing its human capital. With its 357 million illiterates[1], India is home of a third of the total number of illiterates in the world. This is a statistic in which not many Indian would take pride. The in

50 YEARS OF NIGERIAN EDUCATION: CHALLENGES AND PROSPECTS ABSTRACT: The fifty years history of Nigerian education is fraught with mixed statistics. On the one hand are fascinating statistics of an education system that has produced some of the world’s best brains in different fields of knowledge. On the other are disturbing statistics of an education system that today is at its lowest compared to standards in Africa and elsewhere in the world. This paper draws attention to the challenges inherent

Childhood Obesity: Cultural and Social influences The wide spread presence of childhood obesity is on the rise in all countries and has become a global epidemic.

Art through the ages
Art through the ages
From stick figures in the sand and the earliest animals painted and carved in stone, people worldwide have reacted to the world by making images. The fundamental goal of art, especially in the past, was to convey meaning and express important ideas, revealing what was significant to every society, by arresting images. In recognizing the subject matter of any painting, you have to look at the artist's intentions, which are regularly connected to social conditions, national or global issues and t

VIETNAM. The Socialist Republic of Vietnam consists of the former Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) and the former Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam).

The 20th century, especially in the second half, has been one of rapid change in the Earth's environment. The impact of humans on the physical form and functioning of the Earth have reached levels that are global in character, and have done so at an increasingly mounting speed. 20 years ago the environment was seen as posing a threat to the future of humanity as death rates from natural hazards had increased dramatically since the turn of the century.

Gorbachev and Perestroika
The history of the Soviet Union is complicated and fascinating. In the course of only seventy years this country has seen the development of the totally new system of state, economic growth, the growth of hopes for the brighter future, and then the sudden and expected by no one collapse of the whole system leading to chaos, wars, and confusion. One period is especially important in order to realize how did things finally started to change after the seventy years of blindly pursuing the dream

JAIL SUICIDES PREVENTION
The United States is plagued by a countless number of social dilemmas. Although not in constant public scrutiny, suicide is a serious problem which has seemed to have lost importance. When suicide is coupled with arrest and incarceration it becomes an increasingly complex situation. In fact, research indicates that the jail suicide rate ranges from 2.5 to 13 times greater than the rate of the general population (Winkler 1992). Motivation, prediction, and prevention of suicidal behavior are gros

Globalization in Education
Globalization in Education
My personal opinion regarding globalization in the context of education is that it opens wide variety of global opportunities: international employment, exports and imports, information and technology transfer, etc. Globalization in general means the increasing level of interconnections among people all over the world through global network, which means that the world is becoming a unified whole with no cultural and social conflicts. The central idea of globalization is conducive to the idea of

Overview of Economics Introduction Let\'s face it: If there\'s one fundamental principle guiding life on earth, it\'s scarcity.

The per student cost of fully employing computer technology in a school ranges from a low of $142 to a high of $415 per-student-year. Therefore, a school with 700 students can expect to spend from $99,000 to $300,000 per-student-year to effectively deploy computer aided learni
