Is Cricket a Global Game Indeed?
Recently the International Cricket Council has started a campaign named “Bigger Better Global Game”. The campaign is calculated for four sequent years, and enshrines the increasing popularity of cricket, which is believed to turn cricket into a truly global game with increased number of teams and fans. But aren’t the board of ICC too optimistic, and have they any reasons for making such claims on a day before the fair? Let’s take a closer look on the game of cricket and try to identify can it really be called a global game.
Abortion is one of the most debatable and controversial issues that exist today in our society. There are people who support the idea that it should be a choice of each and every woman – whether to do it or not, while others claim that no one has a power to decide, whether to bring life on the planet, or put an end to it. As for me, I have done a certain research on the subject and I found out that there is no other right variant for me, than to choose life. I will explain what I mean.
It is Friday evening… I cannot wait to have my friends jump into the car to catch up with Tom’s birthday party. We have barely driven a mile when a police officer greets me with a ticket. Why? I am 16 years old, carrying four teenagers, at night and in absence of an adult. Our plan for some fun just failed. So, is there a basis for restricting the privileges of teenage drivers? Yes, I do find merit in that reasoning.
Everywhere you look nowadays there will be an article or a news story on the detriments of teenagers using the Internet: from social networking disasters, to them being scammed out of their (or their parents’) money. However, very few people have taken the time to look at the positive effects of teenagers surfing the Internet, and this is a great shame.
Effects of Plagiarism
Plagiarism, one of the main scourges of the academic life, is quite an easy concept, but, nonetheless, harmful. In short, to plagiarize means to steal someone else’s idea or part of work and use it as your own. But why exactly it is considered to be so bad and immoral? And it is really considered immoral and a serious offence. In case it is discovered, it may lead to very unpleasant consequences; the higher the position of the offender is, the more unpleasant they are.
Our society is developing and continuously improving. That is what we hear all the time from TV screens and front pages of the newspapers. Undoubtedly, there are problems, but we are becoming more socially oriented, tolerant, and culturally diverse. There is less discrimination and more understanding. And we are on the way to our ideal future. It all sounds very enthusiastic, but the truth is that discrimination will never be eliminated.
It seems that the time of sexual prejudice and discrimination, when war and military service were thought to be a purely male affair, has long become a thing in the past, giving women a freedom to choose such a career. However, if you consider this issue seriously, you will be surprised to find that an idea of a woman joining the army is still met with lots of raised eyebrows.
Almost all theories of human development agree upon the fact that society is the key factor in the development of a human being. This is what teaches people to learn how the world is organized and structured by means of communication and provides them with possibility to evaluate themselves through the perception of other individuals. However, I strongly disagree that society is the key factor shaping a personality.
School education is traditionally considered to be the necessary prerequisite of the successful socialization of a personality. Going to school children not only acquire knowledge about the surrounding world, but also go through a preparation stage for successful adaptation to life in the modern world. It helps children learn how to organize their day, communicate with peers, evaluate and assess themselves and others and form a complex system of ties with the surrounding world.
For more than a century we have been taught by the medical science how to bring children up and take care of them in the correct, up-to-date way. However, nowadays more and more people turn to what is called natural parenting – simple, instinctive and traditional methods of parenting without any common goods created just to enrich commercial companies and make you feel more distant and separated from your baby.
