Living with Homosexuals: Research Edition

...Rochelle Peeler 26 April 2011 Living with Homosexuals The Research Edition Homosexuality and parenting are not mutually exclusive. There are thousands of same-sex couples raising children together throughout the world. These families are essentially caught in a social tug of war between accepted social norms and personal well-being. Not all people know that homosexual parents are just like any other heterosexual parents. Those who oppose this kind of life style have a tendency to create negative images of homosexual families and calling the parenting skills of same sex couples into question. Opposition to the gay community and non-traditional families often arises from stereotypes about homosexuals related to the labeling of an individual based upon masculine or feminine characteristics. Extreme masculinity or femininity tends to make others uneasy and apprehensive about the motivation for the behavior. There are some who are afraid that gay men and lesbian women are contagious and essentially the “carriers of the scourge” (Johnson and O’Connor, “For Lesbian Parents,”). A person who is homosexual does not intentionally impose their sexuality on others. Homosexuals do not hide from the society that sometimes shuns them, in fact, same sex couples try to give back to the community more then they deserve. Margot Lee Rawsthrone from the University of Sydney, Australia explains to the reader in great detail that some of the people in the gay and lesbian community are doing......

Australia International Business Research Case Study

...will significantly expand the resources sector. The country also has a large services sector and is a significant exporter of natural resources, energy, and food. Key principles of it’s trade policy include support for open trade and the successful culmination of the Doha Round, (aimed to achieve major reform of the international trading system through the introduction of lower trade barriers and revised trade rules), for multilateral trade negotiations, particularly agriculture and services. The economy grew for 17 consecutive years before the global financial crisis. Subsequently, the government introduced a fiscal stimulus package worth over US$50 billion to offset the effect of the slowing world economy, while the Reserve Bank of Australia cut interest rates to historic lows. These policies - and continued demand for commodities, especially from China - helped the economy rebound after just one quarter of negative growth. As a result of an improved economy, the government could return to budget surpluses as early as 2015. It was one of the first advanced economies to raise interest rates as well, with seven rate hikes between October 2009 and November 2010. The Gillard government is focused on raising the economic productivity to ensure the sustainability of growth, and continues to manage the symbiotic, but sometimes tense, economic relationship with China.

History Into Vogue Magazine

...History into Vogue Magazine Vogue magazine has influenced American society for over a hundred years. The magazine has evolved to reflect modern women. Vogue has gone through many changes and has created a market for women’s magazines. Originally, Vogue was more of a high society paper than a mass marketed magazine. Vogue was founded in 1892 by Arthur Baldwin Turnure. Turnure’s original vision was to be a social gazette for New York’s elite. Turnure’s investors for Vogue included the Vanderbilts, A.M Dodge, William Jay, and Marion Stuyvesant Fish. Turnure hired a staff with a higher socialite status rather than a staff with literary talent. Socialite Josephine Redding was the magazine’s first editor. By all accounts, Redding seemed less worried about fashion and more passionate about animal rights. Vogue was a weekly journal that aimed to appeal to only high society women and gentlemen. Originally men’s sports were chronicled in the magazine. Fashion was not the focus. Rather, the focus was the traditions of high society; fashion was only mentioned when talking about what was appropriate to wear to an occasion. Vogue had articles reviewing plays, books, music, and discussions of the societal etiquettes of the time. Two regular articles were called “As Seen by Him” and “Of Interest to Her.” “As Seen by Him” was particularly snobbish with articles like “A Word about the Treatment of Servants”. The staff also included “Society Snapshots” which were features of their friends......

Australia Research Paper

...telco’s Australian business lost 64,000 customers in the three months to December 31, to 3.11 million. As Vodafone operates in Australia as a joint venture with Hong Kong’s Hutchison Whampoa, the decline means that the local operation shed a total of 128,000 customers during the period. Vodafone Australia’s total mobile subscriber base is now 6.2 million. Telstra yesterday revealed it had grown its mobile base by another 607,000 subscribers in the half to December taking its total to 14.4m. Optus, the nation’s No. 2 telco, has 9.5 million mobile customers. Vodafone Australia’s losses contributed to a 16 per cent fall in its service revenue during the December quarter. Vodafone’s local operations continue to be punished by a series of network meltdowns and customer privacy breaches dating back to 2010. Since that time Vodafone Australia has lost about 1.3 million customers. The telco has spent $1.7 billion in the last two years trying to repair its mobile network and bring it to parity with Telstra and Optus, however it has so far been unable to completely fix its damaged brand. “The business continues to focus on network improvements and arresting weakness in brand perception,'' Vodafone Group said in its third quarter financial report. In a presentation to investors, the group said that it was undertaking cost saving initiatives in Australia, including restructuring, store reductions and network sharing. The group reported a 2.6 per cent fall in service revenue to 10...

...Nov, 10, 2013 The Vogue Magazine and Stereotypes Vogue magazine is said to be the most influential fashion magazine worldwide with the number of 11,265,000 of total audience. 88% of the audience are women, in particular women with above average income and higher education. Even though the pages overflow with glamour and luxury, the magazine is highly appreciated by women with average income, too (Nast,C.). For some Vogue can be a reality, for the less lucky it means the possibility to dream. It is a highly intellectual magazine as well, as it responds to current socio-political issues and promotes the cross connection of fashion and politics. With a vast audience comes great responsibility of those behind the creation and edition of the magazine. After all, fashion is a tool of communication that sets roles and promotes ideas and participates at the formation of its followers. A lot of criticism was ascribed to Vogue as a promoter of unrealistically perfect bodies and flawless visages that reinforce our stereotypes of what beauty consists of and what not. Nevertheless, besides the magazine's promotion of stereotypical beauty, at the same time other stereotypes are being attacked and broken down by the Vogue magazine. Vogue is mainly a collection of photoshopping ads of luxury products and models that do not capture reality but stereotypical representation of women. According to some readers, listing through the photographic essays, one is being transported into......

...Critiquing Research According to Webster (1985), to research is to search or investigate exhaustively. He also states that it is, “A careful or diligent search, studious inquiry aimed at the discovery and interpretation of facts.” The piece being critically reviewed is an article by Dr Ann Seed (1995), “Crossing the Boundaries – Experiences of neophyte nurses.” Readers sometimes assume that if a report was accepted for publication; the study must be sound (Polit & Beck 2004), unfortunately this is not always true. In order to determine the quality of the work, a critical review is needed. This work will use the Model for Critical Appraisal of Studies by B Roe (1993). The Introduction The introduction should acquaint readers with the research problem and context (Polit & Beck 2004). The introduction in Seeds research is informative but does not give actual reasons for the study and what expectations are. These are not established at all in the published piece; this is a problem for the reader as it leaves one guessing what Seed feels the importance is and what the intentions were, this should have been highlighted in the beginning. Literature review Seed does not use a literary review. Cormack (2000) states all articles should; as quoted in Polit & Beck (2004); Glaser and Strauss (1967) disagree, and state it is not correct to take on qualitative research having pre-examined earlier works. The author does not discuss reasons why she has not included a literary...
