The 21st century has begun. What changes doyou think this new century will bring? Useexamples and details in your answer.
Now that we are in a new millennium, we can assume there will be changes in the world. Ipredict that the changes will be in the areas of information dissemination, global alliances, andfamily structure.
In the past decades, the computer was responsible for changing the way information wasorganized. Now, the computer plus the Internet is changing the way information is spread.Information will now be universally available to anyone with a computer. You will not have to goto libraries to do research; you will not have to travel to visit scholars; you will not have to goto a bookstore to buy a book. You can do all of this from your home on the computer.
In the past decades, the nations of the world aligned themselves with the United States, theformer Soviet Union, or with one another in a loose alliance. In the future these alliances will bemore fluid. Some countries will align politically with one country, but economically with another.Some countries will share technology and other information, but will not trade together. Somecountries, which have long been enemies, will align militarily for regional security.
The family structure will not be based on a mother/father/child pattern. Single parent familieswill be more common and often the child will not be a biological child of the single parent, but willbe adopted. Other family structures like domestic partnerships will become more accepted.
Whatever the changes may be, whether in the way we receive information, the way nationsalign with one another, or the way family units are defined, you can be sure that there will bemore change. Change is a constant.
What are some of the qualities of a good parent.Use specific details and examples to explain youranswer.
I am fortunate to have good parents so it is easy for me to identify the qualities that makethem good. These qualities are unconditional love, trust, and respect for me and my brothersand sisters.
All mothers and fathers love their children. They nurture them and keep them from harm. Butnot all love is unconditional. Some parents would not love their children if they married someoneof a different religion or from a different ethnic group. Some parents would not love theirchildren if they were of a different sexual orientation. My parents won’t. My parents would loveus regardless of whom we married or whom we chose to love.
Part of unconditional love is trust. My parents trust us to do what is right. They know we wouldnever do anything to hurt them or to disgrace them. They trust us so we trust them. We areconfident that they would never do anything to hurt us.
Because our parents love us, they also respect us. They treat us as individuals. They accept ourdifferences. They do not expect us to be like them. They want us to be our own persons. Theywant us to make our own way in the world, not follow in their footsteps.
Without their love, I would not be as confident as I am. Without their trust, I would not befree to do what I want. Without their respect, I would not feel comfortable being on my own. Allchildren should have such wonderful parents.
Movies are popular all over the world. Explainwhy movies are so popular. Use reasons andspecific examples to support your answer.
Movies are popular because people are great watchers. They like to watch other peoples’ lives.They like to live vicariously. By going to movies, we can escape our own lives, share otheremotions, and imagine ourselves as someone else.
Many of our lives are not as adventurous or glamorous as the lives in movies. We do notbattle evil all day long and then go back to our luxurious penthouse apartment. We just go toschool, do our homework, et, talk to our friends, and sleep. We need a little excitement in ourlives and we find excitement at the movies.
Humans are very emotional people. We all like to cry and laugh. Fortunately, there is not muchto cry about in my life so I like to go to sad movies where my heart strings can be tugged. Ialso like to go to comedies so I can laugh. I tend to cry and laugh more in a dark movie theaterthan I do in broad daylight.
Now I am a student, but I know someday I will be a scientist or a politician or a famous model.When I go to the movies, I can see my role models. I see how they act, what they wear, howthey talk. I can prepare myself for the day when I will be like them.
Even though my life is quiet, I can go to the movies and watch someone else’s life. I can sharetheir emotions and their everyday life. I wonder if they would like to share mine.
