Fast-paced lifestyle and stress have a negative effect on families. To what extent you agree?
Fast –paced – a lot of challenges, fast-driven, hectic life,
Stress- mental pressure, depression, overwhelming worries, fear, anxiety, concerns, burden
Families problems, issues, fractured families, unstable, dysfunctional, marital, domestic misunderstanding, conflicts, tension
It is true that the speed of life in some countries increased significantly and has influence on all aspects of life including families. There are thoughts that increasing number of families issues is caused by the change of lifestyle over past decades. However, I think that not all families are a subject of a new modern life .
There are many benefits for family well-beings can be attributed to the fast-driven life. Firstly, being busy and involved in a great numbers of errands means that there is not time for other illicit affairs . For example, getting ready children to school, outdoor activities, watching dedicated partner working or multitasking are the factors that make family stronger. Secondly, at the present time due to the fact that many newlyweds can study and work at the same time , have an opportunity to live separately from their parents and that also reduces the number of conflicts in families. Last but not least is stress of new life is not a really stress . It is a new challenge which can be combat in any way. It has be proven that a lot challenges during the life enable partners build stronger families with healthy children,
However, there it can be argued that many families break up due to the burden of life with a great deals of responsibilities . It is partly true that not many can sustain the huge demand of labour market which is the main financial basis for every family. Re-training, taking new courses are examples why…...

Younger Generation

...Randy – Problem with the Younger Gen The Problem with the Younger Generation Today Good afternoon, my name is Randy Daniels and I am pleased to have the opportunity this afternoon to give my thoughts on a subject that anyone over the age of 30 has an opinion on - that is the younger generation and their associated faults. My view of this so called problem is that there is really no problem at all; it is simply generational bias at work. Every generation thinks the next generation is lacking in some basic knowledge or skill that is vitally important to the continuation of the human race. Often, however, we find out that in time that skill, ability or knowledge will surface or were totally unnecessary in the first place. First, please understand that by “young people” I am not referring to anyone under the age of 17. These teens live in a sub-culture that no one over that age understands. There is good reason why retail shopping malls have imposed a ban on these so called young shoppers unless they are accompanied by an adult. Many of the young people I see today can solve problems and the solution is almost always correct. They just go at it differently. While my generation, my parents generation and those before might work out several possibilities and try to devise the best solution, the young people of today use Google and instantly have the opinion of several experts. Ask yourself this question; if we had had computers in our day wouldn’t we be doing the...

The Young Man and the Old Man

...of the Bible, David was a young man who, using only a slingshot and five rocks struck down the giant Goliath and saved his people. David has been a symbolic figure in art throughout history. Two men who lived nearly a hundred years apart both sculptured the famous biblical figure of David through the lens of his own times but they were both influenced by many of the same things. Michelangelo showed David as a symbol of courage in the face of the enemy while Donatello depicted David as a symbol what can be accomplished by even the smallest entity. His character and story have been interpreted and re-interpreted by many artists in different mediums. Donatello was was born in Florence in 1386. He was an early Renaissance artist who lived at the end of the Dark Ages. He is known as the artist whose work officially began the Italian Renaissance (“David”). Donatello was first introduced to Roman sculpture when he visited Rome with his master, Brunelleschi (“Donatello”). It was there that he carefully studied classical Roman sculptures. The studies he preformed in Rome greatly influenced him the rest of his life. He is known for making the first sculptures with classical influence after the Dark Ages. The influence of his Roman studies is shown in the natural flow of the statue, something which is not seen in any art of the Dark Ages. Michelangelo was born to a middle class banking family on March 6, 1475 in Caprese, Italy. When he was still a young man, his mother become......

Young and Old Waiters Attitudes Toward the Old Client

...As one grows old and death draws near, one becomes more and more painfully aware of the meaninglessness, the nothingness-nada-of life, this is what the old waiter realizes and comprehends due to his old age. Because of this fact, he sympathizes the old customer’s feelings in particular and other elder customers who come at night to the café looking for clean and well-lighted place in which to destroy the darkness which means loneliness, despair and nothingness for them. So that, he likes to stay late at café to serve such clients because he knows that he may one day be just like the old man—unwanted, alone, and in despair. Ultimately, the old waiter is reluctant to close the café as much for the old clients’ sake as for his own because someday he’ll need someone to keep a café open late for him. This reflects his understanding on a deep level why he and the old client are both reluctant to go home at night. He tries to explain it to the young waiter by saying, “He stays up because he likes it,” but the young waiter dismisses this and says that the old man is lonely. The young waiter was so brash, harsh and insensitive, the young waiter can’t see beyond himself. He readily admits that he isn’t lonely and is eager to return home where his wife is waiting for him. He doesn’t seem to care that others can’t say the same and doesn’t recognize that the café is a refuge for those who are lonely. The young waiter is immature and says rude things to the old man because he wants to......

Young vs Old Drivers

...Young Drivers vs. Old Drivers Ellen R Hertz Com/170 September 19, 2012 Joanne Custer When pulling out of the driveway, one enters the most dangerous place in the world, the American Highway. Who is going to be the unsafe driver; will it be the 16 or 17-year-old or the 75-year-old. The young believe that they have enough experience to handle anything and the old cannot react fast enough. There is also the issue of drugs and alcohol or medications impairing the driver’s, young or old, abilities to drive in a safe manner. Statistics show that an elderly driver is more likely to receive fatal injuries in an accident because of age. Those same statistics show the young die because of excessive speed and lack of experience. The driving laws in the United States are not well defined in regard to teenage and elderly driving requirements; however, statistics clearly present an imperative need for these laws to be reviewed. The young driver, who has only had his or her license a short time, does not possess the experience of the older driver. The older driver does not have the reflexes that are required to react quickly. One assumes they are immortal and one believes they are infallible. Statistics reported from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) say that 15 % of all fatal accidents involving teen drivers are due to excessive speed, while only 5 % account for the elderly. The young drivers believe that they can handle the speed on a straight......

Generation Me

...Young people today feel no attachment to duty or to group cohesion which is clearly highlighted throughout “Generation Me”. “Generation Me” discusses the attitudes and societal views of the younger generation; there has been a major shift in thoughts throughout the past decades of generations. This change of thought among the various generations is seen through the attitudes, political views, and social awareness of individuals within each group. Family traditions as well as cultural values do not hold nearly as much importance as they have in past generations. Younger generations are concerned more about their personal commitments and their own life rather than belonging to a larger group. In past generations family was viewed as being extremely important; however, in current generations families are no longer as close-knit as they used to be and therefore do not hold as much value as they should. Family traditions do not stick and are not carried out for second and third generation American citizens. Younger generations have in a sense become more “Americanized” than their grandparents or even great-grandparents ever were. With the passing of decades, family traditions and celebrated holidays have greatly declined; during holidays my grandmother does majority of the cooking. She does not use a lot of processed or ready-to-cook foods, rather she makes everything from scratch the way that she was taught when she was younger. Her mother, or my great-grandmother,......

Assess the Reasons Why Young People Seem to Participate in Religious Activity Less Than Older Generations

...Shown in recent statistics, is that younger people, who are over 15 (as children under this age are usually forced by parents), do not participate in religious activity as much as the older generation – excluding the over 65s group, this is usually because they cannot get to church easily due to ill-health and disabilities. Brierley supports the idea of an older generation by showing that the average age of church goers in 1979 was 37 which increased to 49 in 2005, clearly showing a trend towards an older congregation. Heelas also found that those involved with the New-Age Movements were mainly middle-aged or older; again supporting the recent trend. Some reasons for why younger generations are less religious are because of the increase in religious diversity and scientific explanations in which young people seek more rational answers for things rather then turning for God for answers. It may also be because of the changes in attitudes surrounding religion such that there is less stigma and pressure attached to attending church than there was previously. However nowadays people can just practice religion at home. The privatised religion of believing without belonging (Davie) does show a reason for why young people participate in religious activity less than older generations but it is because of the fact they can practice privately with the help of media which is needed because of their changing patterns of employment and leisure (Sunday not seen as a ‘holy day’ – businesses...

The Generation of Young Christains in This Last Day

...A Generation of Young Christians 1. We are always right and we never accept correction..A corrector is seen as an enemy 2. We love to sing in church, but do not read our bibles at home 3. We are full of lust, sensuality and emotions and we call it love 4. we want to have wonderful marriages, but by the time we are 25years we've spent almost ten years in relationships already. Sometimes we may have had more boy lovers and girl lovers than even our parents. 5. Sexual activities are now part of our relationships calling it romance 6. we want to be rich in life, meanwhile we spent all our finances on the latest ipads, iphone, galaxies, htcs, laptops, cameras etc which in many cases we use less than 30% of their functions 7. We do not pay our tithes and offerings claiming we are students 8. We say we are christian women but dress like hollywood stars and we call it fashion 9. We love pleasures rather than God 10. In church you will see us with our hands lifted up singing slow songs which we call worship but on our phones in our pockets, you will see pics of naked and half naked women, hip hop, hip life and we have a nice way of justifying it. 11. We are hardly convicted when we go to church because our hearts have been hardened by the deceitfulness of sin and pride...etc etc etc But God forsaw this and warned us in 2Tim. 3.. That in the last days men and women will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud,......

3. Dating the Rocks of the Grand Canyon (Old-Earth vs. Young-Earth)

...vast quantities of materials being removed by erosion or because there was little or no deposition of materials. Thus, rock formations of considerably different ages are separated by only a thin distinct surface that reveals the vast unconformity in time. Briefly summarized, the geologic history of the canyon strata is as follows. The crystallized, twisted, and contorted unstratified rocks of the inner gorge at the bottom of the canyon are Archean granite and schist more than 2.5 billion years old. Overlying those very ancient rocks is a layer of Proterozoic limestones, sandstones, and shales that are more than 540 million years old. On top of them are Paleozoic rock strata composed of more limestones, freshwater shales, and cemented sandstones that form much of the canyon’s walls and represent a depositional period stretching over 300 million years. Overlying those rocks in the ordinary geologic record should be a thick sequence of Mesozoic rocks (about 250 to 65 million years old), but rocks dating from the Mesozoic Era in the Grand Canyon have been entirely eroded away. Mesozoic rocks are found nonetheless in nearby southern Utah, where they form precipitous butte remnants and vermilion, white, and pink cliff terraces. Of relatively recent origin are overlying sheets of black lava and volcanic cones that occur a few miles southeast of the canyon and in the western Grand Canyon proper, some estimated to have been active within the past 1,000 years.

...The Stolen Generations The term “Stolen Generations” is used for the Children of Australian aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, most of the children were under 5 years old, who were taken from their parents by the Australian government and Church. They were separated from their parents and lived in dormitories or with foster parents. It is referred to “stolen generations” because it happened for many decades and several generations were affected. It is believed that these forcibly removals happened from around 1900s until 1970s. Approximately 100.000 children were stolen during that time. They had less contact with their parents or even didn’t know whether their parents were still alive or not. Nowadays, many of them are still searching for their families. There were many reasons to justify the Australian government actions includes to give them better living conditions because their aboriginal parents would only neglect them, to convert their beliefs into Christian by moving them from the cultural influence of indigenous people and to give them better education. However, the truth is, there was an assimilation policy that aboriginal people would die out if they have children with white Australians for generations and a fear of miscegenation by full-blooded aboriginal people. The term “Stolen Generations” is used for the Children of Australian aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, most of the children were under 5 years old, who were taken from their parents by the......

Young Earth vs Old Earth

...Comparison Essay: Big Bang Theory vs Young Earth Lee Physical Science March 3, 2012 Introduction Mankind has been giving the nature to explore and search for the beginnings of his existence. The beginnings are most debated over two separate views. The Big Bang Theory and the Six Day Creation have been a battle front for centuries. The “greatest minds in physics,” have pondered the beginning of the universe. Curiosity has led to questions of how the universe began. (LaRocco and Rothstein) Most scientists would teach that the earth has always been in existence. The debates focus either from a religious point of view or a secular or worldly point of view. These two thoughts will be compared and discussed in this paper. The Big Bang Theory The people who believe this theory think the universe began because of a large explosion. Many scientists teach this Big Bang happened some 15 Billion years ago. This event was an explosion “filling all of space with all of the particles of the embryonic universe.” (LaRocco &Rothstein) This theory is about ridiculous, because it is not really plausible to believe anything it states. How can an empty earth just happenstance into existence? This is exactly why they call it a theory. There is no evidence anywhere to prove this theory. Six-Day Creation While there are many people who believe in the evolution of the universe, there are believers that follow the Biblical creation model. To these......

Old Generation

...Old generations often hold some traditional ideas on the correct way of life, thinking and behavior. However, some people think that it is not helpful for the young generations to prepare for modern life in the future. What’s your opinion? 提纲 第一段:1.背景,上一代的长辈们对事对人都持有比较传统和保守的观念。 2.正方观点,一些人们对这种观点持否定的态度,认为他们已经不符合时代发展的需求了。 3.反方观点,另一些人则认为长辈们的观点依然非常有帮助。 4.我认为,老人家的观点对我们日后的社会生活是有一定益处的,可以适当地听取他们的意见。 第二段:在很多人看来,长辈们的观点视乎已经不符合现代人的观念。 第三段:在我看来,长辈们阅历丰富,他们的观点是非常值得我们借鉴的。 第四段:虽说长辈们的观点可取,但并不意味着年轻人应完全遵循他们的意见做事。 第五段:总结。长辈们的传统观念是值得尊重的,我们要适当的借鉴他们的经验。在当下崇尚个性化的社会里,要把前人的经验和自己独特的思想相结合。 It seems that old generations are of relatively conservative and traditional opinions towards the way of thinking and behaviors in modern society. Under such circumstances, some people voice doubt about the validity of ideas from the aged. While others assume that their points of views are still beneficial for the young to fit in the future life. As for me, I believe that the values of the old have its justification and we can properly follow their advices. In view of some people, the ideas held by old generations appear to be outdated and don’t satisfy well with the modern life. The advance of society have made our life experience a great difference, so too do people’s values. For example, the old people pursue a casual and peaceful way of life. While in contrast, young people are living in an environment where life has a quick rhythm. For this reason, these people purpose those......

Young Earth vs Old Earth

...Young Earth –vs- Old Earth Here is my take on the young earth- vs- old earth debate. I am extremely confident that the Universe and everything that lives on the Earth was created by God. This miraculous process took place as stated in Genesis chapter one. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Holy Bible). The oppositions to old earth is young earth. For me, it is just like the life of a Christian. If you live for God then you oppose the way of the devil. Old earth perspective can be added up to two main issues. Issue number one is the meaning of the word Yom. Young-earth followers will say with no hesitation, that Yom equals a 24-hour day in the creation account. “God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” “And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day” (Holy Bible). Old earth counter this argument because the definition in the Hebrew, “gives Yom more than one meaning”. “It can be 24 hour period, or an unspecified longer period of time” (Along with other meanings). The second issue, says that life on earth developed “over a process of time” (Morris, 1994). My perspective has not nor will it ever change. As I always say, “if you can explain your God, then He is too little”. This definitely takes faith to believe the creation and the account of the flood. Proverbs 3:5 says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding“(Holy Bible). Let us take the big bang theory. “This theory...

..."We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world or to make it the last." (John F. Kennedy). Every generation has similarities and differences from the one before, and the one after their time. The people living through that time determines if they will be known for something great. I believe every generation feels a need to leave a positive legacy to pass on. We as people are constantly advancing in social acceptance but where we grow and excel in some areas we start to lack in others. My parents generation and my own have varying differences on political correctness, biracial couples and being entitled. In my generation being politically correct is a must. Small children just entering the education system can tell you what being politically correct means and if what you are saying is correct or not. The media has made such a big deal over what is okay to say and what is not, which leads most people to be worried if they are offending someone. My generation is extremely accepting, women have rights along with African Americans, and gay couples. Most people want everyone to feel like their lives matter and that they are accepted especially minority groups. In order to make everyone feel accepted we have adopted political correctness so we do not offend anyone's choices, beliefs, race, morals, and sexual preferences. Even though being politically correct is important. I believe society is making too big a deal about needing to......

Generation Me

...Generation Me: Has the Self-Esteem Movement Resulted in Unrealistic Expectations for Success? Jean M. Twenge argues that those born after 1970 “are more confident, assertive, entitled – and more miserable than ever before” (Twenge, 2006). Is this true? How did this happen? And why does it matter? Everyone was born into a generation. Some people accept it, while others prefer not to be branded into stereotypes. But regardless of whether you have warmed up to the label, the generation that you were born into influences the culture that you will experience, from pop culture and social trends, to world events, economics, and value systems. Twenge (2006) considers anyone born between 1970 and 2000 to be members of “Generation Me” or “GenMe”. From the time people in this generation were born, we have been told our parents, grandparents, teachers, and even our favourite television personalities that we are all unique and special. We have been raised to believe that everyone should have a high self-esteem. “When the Baby Boomers became parents, there began a society-wide effort to increase children’s self-esteem” (Twenge, 2006). Parents are encouraged to raise their children’s’ self-esteem even when kids are completing basic activities, such as simply colouring. Many schools have specific programs designed to build children’s’ self-esteem. In fact, a quick internet search shows that the mission statements of many schools openly declare that it is their duty to......

Dating the Rocks of the Grand Canyon (Old Earth vs. Young Earth)

...Introduction This is a comparative essay and its purpose is to compare old-Earth and young-Earth viewpoints on Dating the rocks of the Grand Canyon. There are different views on this and no scientific method that can prove (completely) the age of the universe or the earth. There are the use of different types of calculations that can provide some guesses on the age of the earth. Many things need to be assumed such as a beginning date and the speed of change along with varying increases and decreases of material over time. “Young-Earth Creationism” (YEC) is based on a precept that earth and the universe were created by God, only 6,000 years ago in six days. Their position is that by examining geological records the scientific details of early history will become clear and a literal biblical view of Earth’s creation supported. Now, “Old Earth Creationism” (OEC) is also based on a precept that earth and the universe were created by God, but they also believes and interprets the book of Genesis differently. OEC try to fit cosmology and theories on evolution in (in some form). Both “Young-Earth Creationism” as well as “Old Earth Creationism” believes in a creator. The biggest area of disagreement is the age of the universe and the earth. This essay will look at both “Young-Earth Creationism” and “Old Earth Creationism” in regarding Dating of the rocks in the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular areas in the world to focus on this debate. There is a great deal...
