Living in the United States there are resources that are more readily available to us than in other parts of the world. However, in the world today there are endless boundaries when it comes to how we obtain goods, services and food. In certain countries it’s hard to obtain clean water, foods with all the necessary nutrients and vitamins that are needed. However, in the United States we live in an era where everything is available for consumption and all we have to do is go to the local grocery store, Walmart, Target or Farmers Market. This paper will discuss the impacts of a borderless society. Where we get our foods from? The farming methods that are used and how these methods impact the environment and the employees who work with these farms. Were the items grown and shipped in from other countries? Lastly, this paper will cover the ecological and economic advantages and disadvantages of purchasing foods locally. First of all we will discuss my breakfast yesterday. It consisted of eggs, potatoes, onions, green peppers, and orange juice. Some people buy food from the local grocery store. However, I normally purchase our groceries from Stiles Farmer’s Market, Brother’s Farmer’s Market, Publix or Winn Dixie. My breakfast meal consisted of: eggs, onions, potatoes, green peppers from Farmer’s Market, and Simply Orange Juice from Publix.
The reason we purchase from a Farmer’s Market is one the food is organic and the cost reasonable I love the fact that I’m obtain quality food for a good price. There are four companies that certify the quality of the Farmer’s Market food: * USDA Organic seal * Certified Organic Quality Assurance International * OCIA International * Certified Organic OCIA International…...

...A society, or a human society, is a group of people involved with each other through persistent relations, or a large social grouping sharing the same geographical or social territory, subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. Human societies are characterized by patterns of relationships (social relations) between individuals who share a distinctive culture and institutions; a given society may be described as the sum total of such relationships among its constituent members. In the social sciences, a larger society often evinces stratification and/or dominance patterns in subgroups. Insofar as it is collaborative, a society can enable its members to benefit in ways that would not otherwise be possible on an individual basis; both individual and social (common) benefits can thus be distinguished, or in many cases found to overlap. A society can also consist of like-minded people governed by their own norms and values within a dominant, larger society. This is sometimes referred to as a subculture, a term used extensively within criminology. More broadly, a society may be illustrated as an economic, social, or industrial infrastructure, made up of a varied collection of individuals. Members of a society may be from different ethnic groups. A society can be a particular ethnic group, such as the Saxons; a nation state, such as Bhutan; or a broader cultural group, such as a Western society. The word society may also refer to an organized......

...control the minds of masses.” -Malcolm X, 1925. Many of us still wonder what mass media is as all of us has live together with it for years, even centuries. Mass media plays an important role in this modern era of society as media is counted as the “middle man” of the community and the government which helps to communicate between the government and the society. Mass media is a type of media which is meant for a huge sum of audience. It may take the form of broadcasting, as in terms of television, radio or printed media as in magazines and newspapers. On my own point of view, Information and Communication goes along with mass media in this modern era of society to blend into a modern way of life to the common living in this global generation. “All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgarize that society. We can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level.” -William Bernbach, 1911. Media existed because of higher living standards throughout the world. People tend to watch movie instead of reading newspapers and search for news online. As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words. Media producers produced movies to create a way of communication between the happenings surrounding the society and the audiences. For example, during the World War II, the huge amount of combat films in Hollywood is to rise up the awareness against the communist that colonized the country at that time and to boost up......

...The society I find most appealing is the Industrial society. Industrial society refers to a society driven by the use of technology. The reason they use technology is to produce goods for our economy. Factories that manufacture goods such as clothing, cars, home appliances, etc. are all part of the industrial society. It is characterized by use of external energy sources like fossil fuel. They are always looking for new sources of energy to use. These energy sources help to increase production so that more goods are available. The production of food is another large industry. America is an industrial society. Our way of life is identical to the description of the industrial society. Today most people buy their food from stores whose products were produced in a factory, so industry keeps us fed and clothed. The industrial society makes urbanization more desirable because it puts people closer to factories where the goods are produced and they can find jobs in those factories. If you have a job you get paid for the labor you do. People use the money they earn to pay for other goods and services. So the industrial societies rely on the service industry and the service industry relies on the industrial society. One would find it difficult, if not impossible to function without the other. I like the Industrial society because if it was not for technology I would not be able to attend college. In order to attend college you have to be able to work on computers. Some jobs......

...zPHILIPPINE SOCIETY AND CULTURE DE GUZMAN, ALYESKA CHLOE M. 2BSBA1 LOPEZ MUSEUM ““It’s Complicated”, a phrase popularized by social media, has become the catch all for all undefined and problematic relationships typical of the post-modern world. Seeing parallels between these and the complex relationship of the Philippines with its colonial pasts, the Lopez Museum and Library, in partnership with Tin-aw Art Gallery, opens its first exhibit for the year, Complicated on February 21, 2014 featuring commissioned works by guest artists Mike Adrao, Leslie de Chavez, and Ea Torrado, juxtaposed with works by Juan Luna, Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo, Juvenal Sanso, Bencab, Ang Kiukok, Jerry Elizalde Navarro and other artworks from the Lopez Museum collection.” I would like to admit now that I've never really had this kind of museum experience before. Usually, taking tours in a museum is kind of boring because I would only read the overview texts and go around the museum by myself. But, Lopez library was different and unique. I appreciate how they uncomplicated the “Complicated exhibit”. As we enter the museum, the very first things that I noticed are the paintings. Most of these paintings were nonfigurative. Good thing the tour guide explained each of these paintings. These artworks show us the creativity of Filipino and we can also see the life of the Filipino have in the Philippines as every point of it tells history. To conclude, I was brought into a......

...Society Takes Over On a cool summer morning, one of my mother’s high school students that lived in the projects of the Bronx who is a black male towering at a height of 6’6” and three hundred and sixty-five pounds just fresh out of jail charged on a gun possession. My mom and I wanted a better life for him so we took him out to breakfast one morning at the Ihop nearby our house. After we ordered our food, he went to the restroom as everyone moved out of his way with his purple bandanas showing to represent his gang. An older lady came up to my mom and I and asked if we were ok and if he was with us with a startled face. Right then and there I realized society makes bold stereotypes off of appearance and race. In the two articles “Hip Hop Planet” and “Black Men and Public Space” society stereotypes identity by appearance and race. The authors in both articles explain their thoughts on appearance and race. Brent Staples in “Black Men and Public Space” feels appearance is a strong way for society to judge people. Also he states that more black males cause fear in people than any other race. James McBride actually states his fear is his daughter marrying a rapper with gold teeth and a do-rag. He also says hip-hop in New York started from black males in Harlem and the Bronx. Brent displays his experiences on the streets to show that society stereotypes race and appearance. Staples states, “At dark shadowy intersections, I could cross in front of a car stopped......

...Maasai villagers, Tehranians, Americans—each is a society. But what does this mean? Exactly what is a society? In sociological terms, society refers to a group of people who live in a definable community and share the same culture. On a broader scale, society consists of the people and institutions around us, our shared beliefs, and our cultural ideas. Daily life always changes, it can be hard one day and joyful the next, but daily life has changed so much between preindustrial, industrial, and postindustrial society. Before the Industrial Revolution and the widespread use of machines, societies were small, rural, and dependent largely on local resources. Economic production was limited to the amount of labor a human being could provide, and there were few specialized occupations. The very first occupation was that of hunter-gatherer. Hunter-gatherer societies demonstrate the strongest dependence on the environment of the various types of preindustrial societies. These groups were based around tribes. Hunter-gatherers relied on their surroundings for survival—they hunted wild animals and foraged for plants for food. When resources became low, the group moved to a new area to find food. These societies were common until several hundred years ago, but today only a few hundred remain in existence, such as indigenous Australian tribes sometimes referred to as “aborigines,” or the Bambuti, a group of pygmy hunter-gatherers residing in the Democratic Republic of Congo.......

...Section: Society In Waiting for Godot Beckett proposes the view that happiness can never be enduring; it comes and goes and is subject to chance and change. Whether in postwar 1953 or credit crisis 2009, is encouraging people to think happy thoughts more like a desperate recourse to denial than a therapy struggling to engage with reality? Vladimir: Say you are, even if it's not true. Estragon: What am I to say? Vladimir: Say, I am happy. Estragon: I am happy. Vladimir: So am I. Estragon: So am I. Vladimir: We are happy. Estragon: We are happy. (Silence.) What do we do now, now that we are happy? Vladimir: Wait for Godot.( n1) An outbreak of happiness interrupts the otherwise bleak landscape of Waiting for Godot. Samuel Beckett's play, first produced in Paris during 1953, has justifiably become a classic of modern theatre. Neither comedy nor tragedy, but a mixture of both -- with ample quantities of clowning thrown in for good measure -- the whole becomes a vehicle for dramatic meaning and irony. It would be easy to discount this play as a period piece of postwar angst, belonging to the vanished world of existentialism that marked so much European culture after the Second World War. Following two world wars, mass genocide, and economies geared to armed conflict, happiness may have struck contemporaries in the early 1950s as a luxurious and vacuous entity. There was, for example, an urgent debate about whether any literature, art, or drama was possible after......

...security, independence and economic return can be properly conversed among all the Staffs by doing a common Quick Pro programme. Each new hire receives a checklist to ensure every step of on boarding is completed, which delivers consistency across a global company while allowing for additional regional items as needed Baum, T. (1996). The way of Employee engagement, performance and productivity are all measured systematically and can be passed among all the people coming from different way of cultures. The Corporate leadership team can access people data on a daily basis and do the necessary changes in the strategy. This also provides an early warning signal of non-corporate behaviour or below standard performance among the multicultural society. The major disadvantage to be taken in consideration is the way of people taking this strategy, as this one is a electronically maintained method. All the people from different regions will consider Internet as its own way. The measuring mechanism will not be always error proof.Eventhough the employees will know the organisation in detail, the mutual relationship between the People to People will be minimal.

...progressively gained awareness, no longer allowing business actions to remain independent of society endeavors. The obligation or “duty” that has surfaced between organizations and their commitment to the environment and society has typically been the result of enforced government regulations and “bad” publicity. However, Michael Porter and Mark Kramer point out the opportunity that is presented from the application of CSR within a business. Not only can the incorporation be innovative and bode well for the community and economy, but it can equally pose as a competitive advantage by building and capitalizing on shared values. Applying monetary means, resources and expertise in issues specific to an organization allows the business to integrate themselves into society, impact perception and support their business while inflating the economy (Porter & Kramer, 2006). Businesses such as Toms Shoes, Burt’s Bees, The Body Shop, etc. have been able to take CSR one step further, by building their company strategy to incorporate it. They have, in essence, created a shared value that serves the economy and sustains their organization within the industry. Toms Shoes created their brand based on the idea that consumers enjoy feeling good about their purchases and what better way to do that than tying a purchase with a donation. They have been able to leverage the organizations resources to benefit society, while growing the business and profitability because they set themselves......

...arises in non-remote areas since majority of them reside in non-remote areas (Vos, et al., 2009). Social and emotional wellbeing among indigenous Australians is demonstrated by a number of ways. They are traumatized by abuse, domestic violence family breakdown, cultural dislocation, racism and discrimination, rejection by family social disadvantages and drug and substance abuse. They also have psychological distress, a problem related to the high number deaths reported with the family or close friends, serious chronic illness or disability and drug and substance related problems. Their children and adults face challenges in their areas of social life such as in school, workplace, recreational centers as well as economic life in Australian society. Mental health has an impact on their social and emotional wellbeing since they are arrange of cognitive behavioral and emotional disorders that interfere with people’s productivity and lives. Determinants of this wellbeing are multiple, interconnected, and develop and act across the life course from conception to late life, all of which influence the expression of positive or negative wellbeing (Zubrick, et al., 2010). Indigenous Australians compared to non-indigenous Australian population presents higher health problems. Mostly attributed by increased number of non-communicable diseases, including mental disorders (Jorm, et al., 2012). Indigenous Australian demonstrates a high association between psychological distress and......

...MY IDEAL SOCIETY Free will is a property of human nature that depends solely on the individual. Every individual in a free society has the ability to make any decision that impacts his or her own life. This means that any one person can use their own free will to alter or hamper the ideals possessed by another individual within the society. This notion goes against the grains of the idea of an ideal society. An ideal society would have to provide the ideal conditions for all those who lived within it. The principles and standards of the inhabitants within the society would determine these ideal conditions. If an individual within this model society could alter the life of another individual within the society, the ideals of the second individual may be broken; this consequently undermines and destroys the concept of an absolute ideal society. Thomas More’s Utopia carries the premise that everyone within the utopian society does what is necessary for the good of the society, and that one’s free will would consist of only what is beneficial to the culture. This, in itself, is limiting free will by excluding the possibility of freely doing what is not beneficial to the culture. More said, the citizens, “(do) not waste their time in idleness or self-indulgence,” but who’s to say that they cannot? Absolute free will gives each citizen the ability to do whatever they feel inclined to do, even perhaps, idle or self-indulge. In Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, the idea of free......

...and the things they want. This is because it is common in our society for teenagers to need the new and latest electronics and clothes once they hit the stores. They learn about all the government programs such as welfare and Medicaid that can take care of their needs for them. Many teenagers are not expected to work or are even thinking about working when they reach working age, like they were in the past decades. They do not think twice about the price of something because they are not spending money they have earned themselves. They are not being taught the value of a dollar. The common American idea that people rise and fall based on how hard they work is becoming less prominent because we are expecting things to be given to us instead of earning them ourselves. Also, the emphasis on having a strong close-knit family is rapidly deteriorating. Equal opportunity has allowed women to join the work force, even in fields that were predominantly composed of men. The increasing percentage of women joining the workforce has transposed the traditional American family entirely. As more parents focus on advancing their careers, the importance of family becomes insignificant, and child-rearing is left to daycare centers and other means of child care. This raises concern because the bond between the child and parents, specifically the mother, is not as strong as it had once been. As a result of this shift in our society, the family unit as a whole is beginning to break down. ......

...1. Society Society is made up of the human relationship. It is generally considered as a group of people living together in cooperation, but, in fact society is a web of human relationship in which there is constant give and take and mutuality. When a person is born he/she begins living in the society. The people around him are the members of the society. In the first step a child becomes familiar with his mother, then with the family members and the society. So society is the place where a person in engaged from the beginning of his/her life. It is the society which plays a vital role in shaping an individual. A society is very important and essential thing for one’s living. No one can live a normal life in the absence of the society. Beside this it is an individual who makes a society complete. So there is indispensable relationship between a society and an individual. A collection of many individuals makes a society and a society influences a person in his/her growth and development. Without a society, an individual becomes a lonely person who neither can solve the problems of his life nor can live a normal satisfactory life. After a birth a person needs the help and co-operation of the society until his death. Society and an individual are closely interrelated. One becomes incomplete in absence of another. It is the society which is made up of the relationship among individuals and the individuals are incomplete in being away from the society....

...Social Roles in Society June 18, 2011 Social Roles in Society Social roles are patterns of behavior expected from people in various social positions. The concept of social role provides a way to name individuals interdependencies. The expectations that society puts on an individual, socialization is combined with changes in social behavior and organization. Psychology can help identify the components of the development of attitudes and how they change. Many psychologists subscribe to the belief that we take on, and act out certain roles because of cultures and societies (Social Roles and Expectations, n.d.). In 1971 Psychologist Philip Zimbardo along with his colleagues conducted a study that was focused on becoming a prisoner or prison guard. More than 70 applicants answered a newspaper ad and were given application and screening to eliminate people with psychological problem, medical disabilities, and a history of crime or drug abuse (Stanford Prison Experiment, n.d.). A prison environment was assembled in the basement of the Stanford University Psychology Department building. The planned two week investigation ended after only six days, due to the guards and questioning of its morality by Christina Maslach, who was a recent Stanford Ph.D. Social influence is a change in a person’s behavior conducted by the presence or actions of others (Coon & Mitterer, 2010). Stereotyping patterns can easily be identified, when referring to Zimbardo’s Prison, social......
