Analysis of Gender Stereotypes

This caption reflects every crtical situation that the women nowadays has to live, firstly says taking "How to avoid Rape", this means that we have to educate womens to how caring by himself in relation to educate mens to how no Rape, but this is not the problem, then says "but the requisite courses are how to dress or how to behave", so she has to know how to dress correctly (its not more important than how to rape) and how to behave, i think that how a society we have a critycal situation of discrimination in the womens today.

Diary Entry

Today i was working in the office, and i received a letter from my mother (i live in New York, but im from India), when i was young my family told me that when i grew up i have to merry a woman that i dont know his name or even i never saw in my entire life, so in my mind i knew what said in the letter from the India.

I arrived to my house and i firstly read the firs sentence: "you have to marry Osama Yuca", that was the end of my good life in NY, this was my arrianged marriage and consist in  a type of marital union where the bride and groom are selected by a third party rather than by each other, in this case my family with the family of Osama, i was very confused, i dont want to marry this woman, now i have to comeback to New Dahli and marry this woman and also make children, this is a disaster, i really dont want to do, because, i like the life here in the United States, i have completely the freedom to make what i want, after work always go to have some drink with my friends, and in the weekend go to beach or any other funny part.

Now im going to try to stop this, i know that is my obligation, but in my personality its very important my freedom, and marry a women that i dont knowed and also living in India, is not the way i like, im going to send a letter to the family of Osama telling that im sorry but i can´t do this thing in this moment.

Alcohol Abuse in England Make Big Problems to Authorities

LIVERPOOL-.A study by the Royal College of Physicians said drink-related health problems could account for up to 12% of total NHS spending on hospitals, about £3 billion.
But campaigners said that with the estimated £3 billion lost through absenteeism, unemployment, premature deaths and alcohol-related crimes and accidents the total cost of excessive drinking is £6 billion.
They called on the Government to speed up publication of its long-awaited strategy for reducing alcohol misuse in the UK.
The RCP report estimated that treating alcohol misuse cost the NHS between 2% and 12% of its total expenditure on hospitals.
In addition, one in five patients admitted to hospital for illnesses unrelated to alcohol have a potentially dangerous drinking habit.
Studies have shown that 15% of women and 27% of men are drinking more than weekly recommended levels.
The RCP report said teenage drinking was increasing, with more than half of 14 and 15 year olds admitting to hitting the bottle in the previous week.
Professor Ian Gilmore, chairman of the RCP working party which produced the report, said: "Alcohol is an issue which needs to be tackled on all fronts, especially by changing attitudes to alcohol-related problems across the NHS.
"If we start at the sharp end of hospital admissions with detection and simple intervention for patients who are starting to drink dangerously, there is good evidence that we can make a real difference."
Eric Appleby, director of Alcohol Concern, said: "The Royal College's report is further proof that the Government needs to look at the full health, economic and social effects of alcohol misuse and devise a concerted strategy to tackle the problem.
"At the moment different departments have responsibility for various aspects of alcohol policy - with the National Health Service generally dealing with the symptoms of inaction."
A spokeswoman for the Department of Health disputed the claim that alcohol misuse was costing the NHS £3 billion.
She said: "We recognise that alcohol misuse places a heavy burden on all of us.
"Not only does it cost society and individuals, it is also estimated that alcohol misuse costs £207 million to the NHS.
"We agree with the Royal College of Physicians' findings on the importance of brief interventions.
"These can be administered in primary and secondary care through social services and through the criminal justice system and there's sound evidence to demonstrate their effectiveness.
"A consultation paper to tackle a national strategy on alcohol misuse which will be published shortly will consider ways in which barriers can be broken down."
A spokeswoman for the Brewers and Licensed Retailers Association, said: "We fully support their targeted recommendations towards individuals who misuse and abuse alcohol.
"But the figure should be viewed against the £11.5 billion a year which the drinks industry contributes to the public spending purse from duty and VAT alone.
"We also fund independent medical research and campaign to discourage drinking and driving as part of a host of other initiatives.

Questions Chapter 10

1.-  He refers to the attitude that Biko wanted to rescue mapetla traveling long white areas in the night , taking a big risk.

2.-  Mapetla hanged himself, because the treatment of the police in prison causes his dead.

3.- I think that in chapter 11 the problems will arrive not only for biko in his way to cape town (driving in white areas at night), also for other people like Tenjy Mtintso that was arrested in the office of the daily dispatch by the policemen.
