1 Crime - Sample
Some countries, especially poor ones, have a high level of crime, especially poor countries and which the government and local authorities struggle to solve. The causes of crime committing are depend on many various factors, however, it is commonly believed that there is a direct correlation between the number of the crimes and the gross domestic product per person. Its logically due to the fact that the poverty is a major factor of crimecommitting. Another factor which gives the has an impact to on the level of the crime is the difference in the earnings of the various social groups. The problem is very complicated and should be solved together by various group of society organisations and associations. Firstly, the poor people should care about balancing learn to maintain a balance between their expenses and incomes which they earn in order to eliminate unpredictable expenditures such as drinking alcohol, consuming drugs and paying for the consequences of their bad habits. Secondly, the government and the local authorities should give a hand up provide long-term support, instead of giving handouts for to poor people. It gives them a chance to get an education and obtain a well-paid job as well. Thus, the more government maintenance control/intervention could decline reduce unemployment and consequently, the level of the crime. Thirdly, the media should broadcast information about living a healthy lifestyle in order to persuade people not to consume drugs and alcohol. It is commonly known that there is a strict relationship between crimes and drug consumption. Take, for instance, the South American countries such as Columbia and Bolivia where the government is not able to prevent the crimes because of the high level of illegal drug sales. Finally, the international organization community should support the countries which provide the an active policy in respect of regarding / with regard to the prevention of the crime via charity donations. In conclusion, I believe that crime prevention is a very important topic for most countries which could be solved by the collective efforts and in order to be successful in the reduction of the crime, each group of in society should make their contribution to minimize the number of crimes and the government should coordinate the overall process.

2.2.1 Public Health - Sample


Like all human needs such as food and education, health care is one of these important concerns. Services like vaccinations or even surgeries are free in some countries but not in others. Whether or not all people have toshould receive free health care, even those who are responsible of for harming themselves, this is the question we aim to find its solution in the following lines answer here. We have There are different opinions regarding this situation. Some people believe that health care should be made free for everyone. They think that human wellbeing is an essential aspect for a comfortable life. Therefore, health must be protected and cured without charge. For instance, elderly people dont shouldnt have to pay in order to have an urgent surgery operation. In addition, this will encourage people to look carefully after themselves more carefully. While in on the other hand, many individuals think that those who are destroying their health by not taking care of it, like smokers, drudgers drug abusers/addicts, those who dont do sports and those who eat unhealthy food, just to mention a few, must pay for their controls check-ups and cure medicines. That means, this payment will lead many of them to think again about the unreasonable treatment of their health, so they may make a change in their way of life. Overall, while I do believe that health is precious and managing to make it easy to for people to protect their health is a compelling achievement, I think that those who do not protect themselves should pay the price for their negligence.

2.3.1 University Admission - Sample


Many people dream to of live having a high standard of life living, by doing a highly paid and secured jobs, and to get more respect in the community, so they are going to university more than in the past. But comparatively, thelife has become more hectic due to more stress and responsibilities. Because of overpopulation and a few incidents like Global Recession Period, resulting in a shortage of general job vacancies, most people agree that its better to go to for university studies and become a highly qualified person. As a result, one can not only get a high level job post but also earn enough money in a short period (like Bank Executives) rather than spending their whole life on minimum wages working as a less qualified person.and also The advance in techonology has also had a great impact, replacing many peoples jobs especially in the agricultural fields industry, realizing making/forcing/encouraging them (to) go for jobrelated vocationalcourses by which they can do work faster and more effectively. For example, a degree in Technology in Agriculture or Mechanical Engineering. course through university. In my opinion, in proffessional jobs workers like doctors and lawyers are spending most of their life period to being trained and before starting to work and managing to earn a higher income with more respect. However, I think most of them are not able to cope with the jobs responsibility and stress. In fact, there are so many universities which gives the opportunity to do online courses. In conclusion, the advantages of going to university in order to get higher qualifications outweigh the disadvantages. It has had an incredible impact in the progress of developing countries like India. In addition, with theadvance in techonolgy, its possisble to share work or to do a job from your/the computer, so that one can maintain a good work-life balance and avoid stress-induced health problems.

2.4.1 Ageing Workforce - Sample


In today's working world, it's difficult to find better jobs because of many high/stiff/fierce competitions. Every company requires workers with a variety of skills. Some professionals develop their skills over a considerable period of time and had have worked for many years. However, employers are not only looking for experienced workers but also for the qualifications and the acquired skills in dealing with new technologies nowadays. In our technologically advanced society, things are constantly changing. This has a positive advantage to effect on younger generations because they had have studied and learned these new technologies. However, it can be challenging for an older mind to assimilate new information for the advancement in the workplace. This can be a problem with senior workers who lack knowledge of using computers like for example. On the other hand, the advantage of being able to use the rich wisdom of the experienced senior must not be underestimated. The senior worker, having spent so many years in the profession, would have experienced every possible scenario in relation to his/her job. Like for example, when a problem occurs, the young worker has no doesnt have enough knowledge and it is the senior worker who will give them advice and guidance. In addition, senior staff members provide stability in a company. They add both stability and credibility in a company environment. Although young workers have more knowledge with new technologies, the advantages of well skilled senior staffs are also significant. They bring tremendous knowledge and experience to the workplace. They also add stability to the company and greatly assist younger employees. Businesses and companies will continue to benefit from the senior workers well into the future.

2.5.1 Free Time - Sample


For the last (few) decades many people have got been getting a better income than they had before. Moreover, in the same period, a lot of people have also had a reduction in how much time they spend at work. Some reasearchs shows that people are less happy now than before, but on the other hand there are also a lot who say they enjoy their lives. The individualisation that has been going developing over the last 30-40 years has made people more aware of their free time. In spite of an increase in available free time, some families use less time together and this can have a bad impact on the family life. However, I think that a lot of people also use this time to do exciting things together. In my work as a teacher I often see adults asking permission for their kids to leave school for a week or two, because they want their family to be together on a holiday. Some of the leisure activities people are striving for to do can be a real cost for a family. In spite of increasing wages some families can get the feeling of being poor, because of the ongoing strive for something new. Expensive and long journeys can, for instance, be an example of this. matter. It`s not easy to predict what will happen in the future, but there is one issue I will point at. Regarding the climate, the global warming can could have a positive effect. For instance, the human race could be forced to cut back onthe consumption. We might see a trend where people will seek for the old values. In conclusion, families balance their time between work and free time in different ways. Some families fill their free time with more expensive leisure activities, while others put efforts in using make the effort to use the time together. In my opinion I think the future will bring more of the latter.

2.6.1 Traditional Culture - Sample


The new technology is gradually destroying our culture and its components. It is the driving force behind social change, imposing its own logic on the actors and their relations like use of languages [not sure this is relevant here], transforming our traditional norms and values. First of all, technology has abolished the social interaction between families, friends and thesociety in different ways. For instance, most people spend time indoors watching television and surfing the internet. The use of advanced communication techniques like video cassettes as teaching aids, instead of face to face community events, has also affected thesociety negatively. [the question is about culture not really about relationships and communication] In addition to that, our talent and culture is disappearing in the sense that we copy from celebrities in on the internet and television. Culture determines the way in which individualsare identified and recognised, therefore we are wiping out/away our specific values by external behaviours inspired by foreign technology. I would also argue that we are not challenging our mental and academic capabilities as we copy different lifestyles and their ideas, which means we are not innovative. The Appropriate measures could be imposed to link culture and technology. This will wouldbring enhance the developments of our living standards, which include social, political and cultural spheres. For instance, the use of media and communication to understand different cultures and values. This could expand our horizons by looking at a wide range of cultural information. In conclusion, the protection of cultural identity and reinforcing it are of vital importance. We could accept the realities of the present world and protect our culture by the use of the new technology.

2.7.1 International Transport - Sample


Nowadays, international transport has become accessible and affordable. Travelling internationally has become a sort of trend. Some travel for educational purposses, or bussiness and others do it just for pleasure. Whatever the reason, there are people who objects with to it as they consider it as to be patronizing consumerism, especially when it comes to learning about the world since others think that mass media can do a lot as it's counterpart more effectively instead. [This essay will focus for and against travelling internationally]. First of all, I believe that the best form of learning is "doing the actual thing". The same is true with learning about the world. While It is true that with the advent of technology, nowadays, by merely browsing the internet can provide you with information from abouthistory, geography, culture and tradition of those people living in a certain country. In addition, there is no doubt that mass media is cost-effective and quicker to use. [new para]However, I would like to reiterate that nothing can compensate (the form of)learning about a country better than the actual interaction with its people. Feeling the real environment and seeing it yourself will provide you with an indepth understanding of the totallity of the place and will substantiate whatever is fed by the media, which is limited. Thus, having been equipped with a profound and absolute information, you can be an effective form of mass media yourself. So, while it is a far more expensive form of learning, I would still urge the proper authorities to consider this more on this. On the other hand, I would also suggest that they should send only a selected few and they should be the right people, ensuring that the purpose of the travel has a genuine goal and that those who were asked to do it should be dedicated and effective to disseminate what has been learnt to further educate the people. [this sentence could be more concise] In conclusion, travelling is inevitable and very essential as a part of learning, but can also be compromised if there are other more important aspects to be given priority and if it will bring enormous benefit to the country, [not very clear] otherwise indeed! it is advocating consumerism.
