Women in Music Entertainment There are so legion(predicate) talented female artists in music today that its hard not to think of some right off the top of my head. Not hardly do they bedevil great voices, but theyre successful and confident, not to mention fair darn rich Some of these artists knew that they were going to become a wizard while they were still in diapers. The two females that I will be highlighting are two of the younger musical talents that are out in the industry at this time. They both worked hard to get to where they are today by starting off with many of the same dreams and aspirations many of us women share. These women have contributed so much at such a young age that its almost hard to believe. Music is such a strong influence to many people today. Its especially nice when you can relate to the message that the singer is trying to provide. Sometimes its almost as if the person is singing about your deportment or a situation that you are also go ing through. Music can heal, it can bring joy, pain, forgiveness, and realization to many of the problems we face today as women, or just as people. The first talented musician that I would like to talk about is a beautiful young woman who is pretty new on the scene, Miss Alicia Keys. Alicia Keys, who is biracial, grew up in Manhattan, New York, with her ultra-supportive mother, who put Alicia through piano lessons at the age of five. She studied classical music, and grew up to gather it with a jazz/hip-hop/R&B soul kind of sound. Not only can this girl sing and play the piano, she also writes her own music. Highly sought after by different record labels, Alicia Keys was signed to Arista Records in 1998. There, she continued the proc... ...o a whole new level. Gwen is always ever ever-changing and an inspiration to many people. Her look is so different from others with her unique fashion and personality. She has even collaborated with other types of artist s such as Moby, and rapper Eve. Gwen has graced the covers of numerous magazines, and her videos can be seen about everyday on MTV. Im going to be myself. I cant pretend I dont like to wear lipstick. I cant pretend that I didnt grow up playing Barbie, she said. I guess a lot of girls feel the same way. I feel really kind of proud for that fact. I never thought Id influence anyone, said Gwen in her interview. Well Gwen, you dont have to pretend. Youre at the top, and making great music. I like you just the way you are. Im sure many would assort Oh, and keep on the lookout for No Doubts new CD Rock Steady set to come out on December 11th.

My name is Rob Geis, and Im a male college student who happens to be gay. Now, Im not an oh-my-God gay, nor am I an honey, that blouse is all wrong gay, but for some reason that image gets stuck in mints minds when I tell them that I am gay. In many ways, coming out was one of the most liberating experiences of my life. Im free to do whatever I want under the banner of homosexuality I can wear skimpy, too-tight clothing that doesnt suit me, put on makeup, act effeminate and cutesy, or cry at the drop of a hat, without society so much as batting an eye. Its a real pain.The gay stereotype is that were all promiscuous, shallow individuals who act extremely feminine and obsess over fashion. The problem is that there are more young gays who dont see the stereotype than those who do. In his 2005 Time cover story titled The Battle Over Gay Teens, John Cloud quotes one-time Young Gay America magazine publisher editor-in-chief Michael Glatze as saying, Today so many kids who are gay, the y dont like Cher. They arent part of the whole subculture. I dont think the gay movement understands the extent to which the next times just wants to be normal kids. There seems to be a constant pressure to act gay from others in the gay and straight communities. Look at the news media, which constantly focuses on extreme examples like gays marching down the street with pink lip gloss and Prada bags, shouting gay pride. Look at shows like Queer Eye for the Straight Guy which similarly depict the fluff and flutter of the brightly colored, empty-headed peacock that is the gay male. These portrayals make great deal expect that sort of behavior from gay men, almost demand it. From other gays, my speech is now open to unwarranted sexual innuendo. I cant notice a cool pair of sunglasses a guy wears without Ooh? So you think hes cute? popping up. I wasnt looking I just thought the sunglasses were cool thats not so unusual, right? Its the automatic assumption that everything I do is base d on my sexuality thats frustrating. The smallest flick of the wrist speaks volumes about how much of a homosexual I really am.But why stick around to the stereotype if youre gay?

Analysis of ShakespeareDuring Elizabethan times, the survival and longevity of the ability or queen was essential for the subjects of the kingdom. The monarchy unified the kingdom, saw to its prosperity, and protected its subjects from foreign invasion. The king was the most important person within the kingdom and without him the kingdom would collapse. Shakespeare echoes this thought back to his audience in The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Act 3, Scene3, lines 11 through 23 through a depictage recited by Rosencrantz. In lines 1 through 7, King Claudius is ordering Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to take the now-deemed-mad Hamlet to England. King Claudius fears for his kingdom and his own brio having viewed the re-enactment of Claudiss actions in murdering Prince Hamlets father, depicting how Claudius came to occupy the throne by marrying Queen Gertrude, his brothers wife in the melt down The Mousetrap. King Claudius is requesting that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern r emove Prince Hamlet from the castle and the kingdom to reserve Claudius out of harms way. In lines 11-23, Rosencrantz replies to King Claudiuss statement, affirming the Kings reasoning as to why Prince Hamlet should be removed from the kingdom. This is the passage in its entirety. The single and peculiar life is kick back With all the strength and armour of the mind To keep itself from noyance but much more That spirit upon whose weal depends and rests The lives of many. The cease of majesty Dies not alone, but equivalent a gulf doth draw Whats near it with it. It is a massy wheel Fixed on the summit of the highest mount, To whose huge spokes ten thousand lesser thing... ...speare has written the play in such a way that the immediate successors to the throne, Queen Gertrude and Prince Hamlet are both murdered leaving no rightful heir for Denmark. Shakespeare provides no further explanation about the outcome o f the kingdom beyond Hamlets death other than that of Fortinbras, the Prince of Norway, takes the throne. As an audience we are left with questions. Do Rosencrantzs prophecies come to pass? Does the Kingdom of Denmark fall apart with the sound of a groan or does the kingdom sigh in response to the simple matter of power exchanging reach? The answers are as silent as the ghosts of Denmark.Works CitedShakespear, William. The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. The Norton Shakespeare Based on the Oxford Edition. Eds.

The Role of Unfulfilled Expectations in E. A. Robinsons Richard CoryIn E. A. Robinsons Richard Cory, Cory commits suicide because he could not live up to everyones expectations of him. In the very first stanza of the poetry Cory is described by the author He was a gentleman from sole to crown, Clean favored, and imperially slim (Robinson l. 3 & 4), suggesting and comparing him to royalty. Surely, living up to such a hierarchy is the most taxing task one can be appointed. The poem makes reference to his material possessions, suggesting this is one of the key qualities people respect him for. Cory possibly facing bankruptcy feels he will be nothing and thought of as nothing once these gifts are gone. Such high expectations and perceptiveness of Cory have backed him into a corner where he feels the only escape is a suicidal death. It has been believed by many that royalty is directly appointed by God, such a position carries an immense amount of expectations. At times, these e xpectations are not even ascertainable due to the fact that royalty is looked at as flawless and all-knowing individuals. For a single human to cope with this is assuming a great amount of strength is possessed by the man. As stated by Robinson In fine we thought he was everything (l. 11), expresses how immeasurably high the expectations were for Cory. To be held to such a high standard is difficult for any middling human to manage and cope with. Fear of making the slightest mistake as the man is being watched under a microscope causes a permanent stress within ones soul. Living life knowing others are admirable of your status and position makes every day decisions just as crucial as a Kings decisiveness. As an average member of societ... ...ost literal and logical sense, a self-inflicted death is a more supported idea, especially when Robinson writes Went home and put a bullet through his head (l. 16). I talked of the death being made to look like an accident, but that is purely an outside spin that a reader has to put on the verse. Taking the literal meaning of what the author states is more convincing. The stresses that Cory endures due to the high pedestal he is held on is a stronger cause for an individual to snap than that of the prehensile and jealous nature humans are use to dealing with. Cory committing suicide is a much more believable approach than that of a murder. Work CitedRobinson, Edwin Arlington. Richard Cory. Literature-Reading, Reacting, Writing, quaternary ed.

ARGUMENT ANALYSIS WORKSHEET Title of Article Debilitating Effects of TV on Children Author Dr. John M. Grohol The of import purpose of this term is to convince the reader of the negative consequences of television being watched by our younger contemporaries. Not just the quantity but the quality as well. It is too in any case show how parents fail to monitor what they allow their children to watch on television. It in any case shows how their developing minds are absorbing what they see and hear and television and the negative consequences to it.The main arguments that the author is making is that the research studies from the past, present and future, showing how our younger generation are suffering in a multitude of different ways, such socially and academically. The evidence or facts the author uses in this article to support the arguments are as follows 1. A 2005 study that was published in the Ameri tooshie achieves of pediatrician-0 and adolescent medicine. It put in that the increase of television being watched ultimately led to teen pregnancies, a decline in health, as well as our youth no long-lasting seeking to further their education-1.They were no longer interested in college-2. (Grohol, 2009). 2. A 2007 study that was done at Columbia found similar to the 2005 study. Our younger generation was lacking in academic studies, performance and was lacking in the homework department. (Grohol, 2009). The main conclusions/inferences in this article is that just like everything else in life it is exhaustively in moderation. Television is non the problem as is the quality and quality that is being consumed that is the problem.The main assumptions underlying the authors thinking are that American parent is either one of two things. Either they are aware of the detrimental dangers of television but fail to parent or they are not educated on the subject. If we accept the authors line of reasoning, the implications are that guild is to blame for up keep ing and raising of our youth, we now blame society for our childrens flaws and fail to own up to our own responsibility as parents.It is up to us to not only monitor what our children watch but how a great deal of it as well. We live in an era of technology there are many ways in which we can both monitor how much and what they watch. We can block certain channels or teach the right from wrong, we can buy electronically devices that lock a child out of certain programs and also shut a device down after a certain time limit. It is up to us to raise our children not society. If we reject the authors line of reasoning, the implications are then we own up to our responsibility.We are saying that it isnt the television show 16 and pregnant, fault as glide by why my child is pregnant but my fault for failing to raise her or him correctly. If your child knows right from wrong what he or she watches should not walk out them. Grohol, D. J. (2009, 09 27). World of PsychologyThe Debilitatin g Effects of TV on Children.

Doctors appointments ar missed each and every day by people who either forget to establish up or choose non to call and cancel their appointment. This article will look at some of the reasons why it is important to decide to and obtain deposits appointment and what to do if you must cancel. At my previous doctors surgery (office) in the UK, the surgery would regularly post the modish numbers of people who had not shown up for their doctors appointments. I was amazed at the staggering amount of people who failed to show up for their appointments. It was not just a few individuals who did not show up. A large number of people regularly missed their scheduled doctors appointments. If you are a receptionist it can be very frustrating to work under these conditions. You will have to call patients when it is their turn to see the doctor and be left over(p) standing when no one appears.Then you must inform the doctor that the patient did not show up. One of the reasons why it is bes t to try and lay aside your doctors appointment is because it is the polite thing to do. Would you arrange a job interview with a company you were serious about working for solely then fail to show up? It is highly unlikely. Yet, members of the medical profession routinely have to deal with patients who do not show up for their appointments. It is in addition important to keep your appointment if you will be receiving the results of blood tests, and other test results that will determine your medical condition. This in turn will aid doctors see what the next step should be in your courseof treatment. If you miss the appointment, you are not only wasting your doctors time.You could also place your wellness at risk if you do not start your treatment as quickly as possible. Sometimes, it is just not possible to keep a doctors appointment. It may clash with a business meeting at work or your childs emergency visit to the dentists. If you can, try to inform your doctors surgery of the cancellation 24 hours in advance. But if that is not possible, let them know as soon as you can. That way, your appointment slot can be given to someone else who may be in need of a last minute appointment. Keep in mind that rupture an appointment without first calling to cancel can prevent someone else from being seen and it wastes the time of doctors and the rest of the team.

The video games argon well known for their anti- kindly and violent influence in our childrens attitudes. hardly some research has proven that these negative effects are due to the childrens excessive playing time, and more and more studies are being make to prove that the video games can be an excellent tool for childrens hand-eye coordination, their problem solving and analytical skills, and they can also help children in the social domain. We can see some really good positive effects of video games on our children. The first one would be the improvement of the hand-eye coordination.A actor has to watch on the screen while simultaneously, he is pushing the button of his joystick to make moves. It also increases the speed, the agility of a person to respond to a stimulus, and moreover, it helps to improve the motor capacity of a person.We can specially illustrate this idea with the console wii, which has been released and built a couple of years ago by the brand Nintendo. With its new gaming system, the wii has revolutionned the world of the video games. Before the wii came out, the gaming system consisted only of pushing on a couple of buttons in point to make the moves in the game. But the concept of the wii is different, it consists of producing our own movement with the remote of the wii in order to make the moves in the game.It has been so successful, that even some hospitals are using the wii to hill, to re-educate the persons who suffer from some kind of cardiac accidents, cerebral accidents, or just to re-educate the people who had an operation. Another impressive positive effect of the video games is that they permit somehow, the children to improve their problem-solving, management, analytical and additional skills without children even realizing it. The need for these skills are obvious for a player because sometimes, even the most simple game ( like a shooter game ).

The gerontological assessment is a multidimensional, multidisciplinary diagnostic instrument designed to collect entropy on the medical, psychosocial and in operation(p) capabilities and limitations of elderly patients. Various geriatric practitioners use the info generated to develop treatment and long-term follow-up plans, arrange for original care and reconstructive services, organize and facilitate the intricate process of case management, determine long-term care requirements and optimal placement, and make the best use of health care resources.The geriatric assessment differs from a standard medical evaluation in three general ways (1) it focuses on elderly individuals with complex enigmas, (2) it emphasizes operating(a) status and fictitious character of life, and (3) it frequently takes advantage of an interdisciplinary team of providers. Whereas the standard medical evaluation works reasonably well in most other populations, it tends to miss round of the most preval ent problems faced by the elder patient. These challenges, often referred to as the Five Is of Geriatrics, include intellectual impairment, immobility, instability, incontinence and iatrogenic disorders. The geriatric assessment in force(p)ly addresses these and some(prenominal) other areas of geriatric care that are crucial to the successful treatment and prevention of disease and disability in older people. Performing a comprehensive assessment is an ambitious undertaking. Below is a list of the areas geriatric providers may choose to assess Current symptoms and naughtilynesses and their functional impact. Current medications, their indications and effects. Relevant past illnesses. Recent and impending life changes. Objective measure of overall personal and social functionality. Current and future living milieu and its appropriateness to function and prognosis. Family situation and availability. Current caregiver network including its deficiencies and potential. Objective mea sure of cognitive status. Objective assessment of mobility and balance. Rehabilitative status and prognosis if ill or disabled. Current emotional health and substance abuse. Nutritional status and needs. Disease risk factors, screening status, and health promotion activities. Services required and received.The primary care physician or community health worker usually initiates an assessment when he or she detects a potential problem. Like any effective medical evaluation, the geriatric assessment needs to be sufficiently flexible in scope and adaptable in content to serve a all-encompassing range of patients. A complete geriatric assessment, performed by multiple personnel over many encounters, is best suited for elders with multiple medical problems and significant functional limitations.Ideally, under these circumstances, an interdisciplinary team representing medicine, psychiatry, social work, nutrition, physical and occupational therapy and others performs a detailed assessme nt, analyzes the information, devises an intervention strategy, initiates treatment, and follows-up on the patients progress. Due to the intricate temper of comprehensive assessments, many teams designate a case-manager or caseworker to coordinate the entire effort.Most assessments take place in medical offices and inpatient units over multiple visits. If at all possible, however, at least one phallus of the team (rarely the physician) will attempt to visit the patient at home. Despite the problem of low or no reimbursement, the typically high-yield of information from even a single home visit makes it an extremely efficient use of resources.Most geriatric assessments, performed under the constraints of time and money, tend to be less comprehensive and more directed. Although such modifications are best suited to relatively high-functioning elders living in the community, many practitioners find some version of a directed geriatric assessment to be a more realistic tool in a spri ghtly practice. Patient-driven assessment instruments are also popular among geriatricians. Asking patients to complete questionnaires and perform specific tasks notonly saves time, but also it provides useful insight into their pauperization and cognitive ability. To the extent that patients are unable to complete the assessment themselves, practitioners resort to traditional patient interview techniques that frequently involve input from a family member or other caregiver.During your upcoming site visits, you will perform a directed geriatric assessment (DGA), ideally with the same patient, over two sessions. In the interest of education, most of your DGA instruments are student-driven, rather than patient-driven, and require relatively little information from caregivers who may or may not be available at the time of your visit. We have divided the DGA in two parts, each with three subsections. In Part I, you will perform an expanded medical interview covert the clinical history , nutritional assessment and a social evaluation. In Part II, you will perform neuropsychiatric, physical and functional examinations.What follows is a reproduction of the History and visible (H&P) format that you will use in your Physical Diagnosis II course next semester. Although all geriatric practitioners do not use a standard assessment format (comprehensive or otherwise), most agree on basic content. The comprehensive geriatric assessment (history & examination) following the Physical Diagnosis strategy covers the most significant content areas of a prototypical geriatric assessment. As you can see, it moves well beyond the standard H&P, which is precisely the point. We have designed it to correlate as closely as possible with the history and physical you will be learning later this year. It is to your considerable advantage to review this information before meeting your patients face-to-face on the site visits. The DGA instrument you will use during your encounter immediat ely follows this section.

Since manual stemma consumes a lot of metre it would be helpful to build a organisation that rump less the cost with the stated problems, the researchers pull up s dish outs develop, design and implement a strategy called Balingasag Memory Squar e window pane of Sales System (BMS POS governing body). BMS POS dodging is where a retail transaction completed. It is the point of sales which a customer makes a payment in exchange for goods or services.At the point of sales it leave alone calculate the owed by the customer and provide options for the customer to make payment. As part of it services, researchers implement a system that is designed to provide capabilities for storing, searching, updating, adding, deleting and editing the files of products or data. One of the important of BMS POS system is breed for the identification in receiving and selling inventory facts. Determine when to record broken stock items or to record the sale of specific items. BMS POS system can excessively monitor the cost of goods sold, purchase price and sale price. All of the deliveries are recorded and listed from this system. There is a separation for the record of all goods. Expenses provide be subtracted to the gross income and the result leading be the net income with the use of this study.Balingasag Memory Square is using manual process of recording data of products but not all files of goods is recorded for many years it must be execute more than efforts in maintaining a fast, efficient and reliable service. It is indeed a need for Balingasag Memory Square to computerize its old way of keeping or storing of files in order to update, edit, cancel, and search and so with the personnel. The importance of this research is tohelp the business to lessen their work in keeping files manually. Through this, the study go out offer a fast and more efficient service to the community especially in retrieving important information for future use. This system helps to minimize the time and efforts consumed by using manual system. Using computerized point of sale with inventory ordain give benefits to the business and to the customers. It can be help to simplify the process of storing and managing the files in need for future use and make finding files easier than the manual process. It is used to keep orders and in addition provides details of when inventory needs to be used.1.2 abstractive and Conceptual Framework of the studyA conceptual and hypothetical framework is very useful in a research it is used to outline possible processes. It illustrates the unlike processes of the system. All the processes are being organized. It is a basic approach to agnize the processes of the system. This framework illustrates the Input Process Output concept in which the researchers use as a guidelines to establish a POS system for Balingasag Memory Square. BMS POS system has two main parts the cashiering and the inventory. The researchers separate cashiering and inventory in its conceptual and theoretical framework for its different process. The growing popularity of computers called for a shift in thinking. During the late 1970s, social presence and media richness theory were found to be inadequate at describing computer-based meetings. In response to the changing landscape of organizations driven by computer systems, Input-Process-Output (IPO) Theory was proposed. An IPO theory state that the outcome of a meeting depends on the process that occurs during the meeting, which is in turn dependent on what is put into the meeting. An IPO chart demonstrates how resources put into the system (inputs) undergo a change (process) to produce results (outputs). phase 1.1 Cashiering theoretical and conceptual framework Figure 1.2.1 illustrates the theoretical and conceptual framework of cashiering. First, the customer will asked for a product to the one whos in depend on in the Memory Square. The person in tingle will check if the product is available or not available, then if the product exists the personnel will give it intothe customer and if its not the in charge will deny the request. Receipt will be given after the transaction is done. The product being bought will be added to t he sales of the day. Figure 1.2.1 illustrates the theoretical framework of cashiering. First, the customer will asked for a product to the one whos in charge in the Memory Square. The person in charge will check if the product is available or not available, then if the product exists the personnel will give it into the customer and if its not the in charge will deny the request. Receipt will be given after the transaction is done. The product being bought will be added to the sales of the day.Figure 1.2 Inventory theoretical and conceptual framework Figure 1.2.2 illustrates the theoretical and conceptual framework of inventory. Products information will be inputted and process to store in database. All the information is categorized. Then finally, all the products will be store in database.1.3 Objectives of the StudyGeneral ObjectivesThe main objective of this study is to develop, design and implement a system that enhance the transaction and inventory process of Balingasag Memory Square. The BMS contingent of Sales System will assure that every transaction is accurate and stocks are always monitored.Specific ObjectivesTo conduct an inter skyline and gather all information needed from the Balingasag Memory straightforward in charge. To analyze all the information that the researchers get from the Owner of the Balingasag Memory Square back breaker of Sales System. To design data flow, context diagram and hold a database that would serve as a guide in historicalizing the desired output of the study. To design Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System. To develop the code of the Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System. To test and debug the Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System. To implement the Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System.1.4 Significance of StudyOWNERThe flow of the deliveries before is not recorded by the owner but the owner knows that she gets a gain in the business. Sa les are recorded manually with the owner and it takes her so much time just to record. With the help of this study it will be easier and faster to record sales. The features of the system are the owner easily can add products in the system, she can add expenses but it will automatically deducted in the income and she can also add credits of the consumer. The owner can also view all the sales in daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. The system can also print the sales of the said store and can print receipt if the consumer wants. So, there will be no more papers and ball pen to be used for recording datas. This is an advantage of the owner so that she will not suffer any more from losing files and no more elusive time in retrieving of files manually.CUSTOMERCustomer is one of the beneficiaries of this study. Transaction will be much faster than before because of the system automatically calculating of the items in the bill.One of the features of the BMS POS system is printing out of re ceipts. If the customer asks for a receipt in the personnel, he/she just press the print key in the system then the system will automatically print out all the list of items that they bought in the Balingasag Memory square. And also, if the consumer doesnt have money to pay and ask for a debt, the system can put all the items that the costumer buy in debts. Customers debts are recorded and listed in the database with the use of the BMS POS system its easier to find files of their debts.FUTURE RESEARCHERSThrough the help of the study our future researchers will not find it difficult to develop a new Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System, since this research would somehow help them on how to make a point of sales system and that what are the things needed to and what are they going to do. With this guide, the future researchers may develop a more improved and better BALINGASAG MEMORY SQUARE POINT OF SALES SYSTEM for the coming future.1.5 chain and LimitationThis Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System aims to computerize the transaction of Balingasag Memory square from its manual process. As the researcher observes nowadays, small and monumental companies are making their system computerized so that it will help the company in minimizing the time and efforts consumed by using the manual process. Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System. (BMS-POS System) can link automatically with the inventory occurring in the real time when the sales occur. In this way it is possible to keep the record of goods that are coming in and sold out. However, this is appropriate for small business that does not have a lot of stocks. This study gives more efficient management of the inventory and cashiering levels, it also provides a clear view of the inventory movement inside the Balingasag Memory Square.It will improve the employees efficiency by automating it routinely and time go through tasks such as the time spent in manually recording the products. A s a result, the time can be used in activities that are more productive. Used to keep track of the customer orders, monitor the products, total the net income every day, listed the expenses, records the credits, provide details of when inventory needs to be restocked and etc. The BMS POS system is exclusively for the Balingasag Memory Square only. A computer desktop base system that can print out weekly, monthly and annual results of sales it can also produce a bill which contains the list of product being ordered, its quantity and price. It can store data, view data, search data, delete data and update a data in the database. It can be used only by the Balingasag Memory Square Owner and its employee. The BMS-POS system is not an online system and in networking.

The related literature is written based on the needed information re lated to the system to provide the better understanding how Facility Inventory System works and give a brief theoretical background. Through this, the substance abuser would somehow understand the functionality of the system clearly and comprehensively. Balingasag Memory Square Point of Sales System is an essential kind of system that can manage to allow the user and module to do their job effectively. All the total credits are listed and all of the expenses are also listed in the database. Inventory is basically the total amount of goods that are stock and stored it is a system that maintains the information about the activities within the firms that ensure the delivery of products to customers. The subsystems that perform these functions include sales, manufacturing, warehousing, ordering and receiving. In this way it is possible to keep a record of all files.As a part of services, this system is to design to provide capabilities for storing searching updating the all files of go ods or products, adding a data, delete and edit. One of the important of POS system is inventory system for the identification in receiving and selling inventory items. Determine when to record low stock items or to record the sale of specific items. POS can also monitor the cost of sold goods, price purchase and sale price. All of the deliveries are recorded and listed from this system. There will be a separation for the record of all products. It can help to record sterilisely all the sales and customers orders, track products which are poor on business sales and manage inventory. This system is a desktop based system in which could only use or accessed by two people which is the admin and cashier. To access the system, the user or staff must enter his/her username and password for the verification. Non-personnel are not authorized to access the system.

The Isolation of Victor Frankenstein Isolation and loneliness can do great injustices to the human brain. People are programed to function in cohabitation with others of their kind, to form relationships with them. So, when these relationships fail or seem to be absent from ones life, the solitariness can ache. In Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the reader sees the developing closing off of Victor Frankenstein, which can be attri hardlyed to his personality and upbringing, as well as his fast obsession with his scientific success. Certain people seem to have something in their genetic make up which makes them more social than others.These people seem to act with crowds at ease and, as the social butterflies within their peers, tend to avoid isolation. Victor Frankenstein is not one of these people. It is not necessarily a fault of Victor, but merely a reality. As he would explain, it simply was my temper to avoid a crowd, and to attach myself fervently to a few (19). This personali ty trait contributed to the increase isolation Victor became subject to. The few he so fervently attached himself to exclusively included his own family and Clerval, whole of whom stayed behind upon his departure to Ingolstadt.Victor explained, I was indifferent to my schoolfellows in general (19). So, once he was away at school, for the first time feeling the absence of his familiar faces, he felt only and totally unfitted for the company of strangers (25). Victors struggle with his natural repugnance to new countenances (25) led to him feeling truly alone for the first time in his life. Ultimately, the natural ways of Victor combined with his comfortable and domestic upbringing had left him sheltered and timid. This reality made the culture shock of leaving syndicate a lonely one.Another factor that contributed to Frankensteins isolation was his fixation on his learning and scientific endeavors. Victor agreed with the theory that If the study to which you apply yourself has a tendency to weaken your affections, and to destroy your taste for those simple pleasures that study is certainly unlawful not benefitting the human mind (34). However, this is precisely what his experiments do to him. Victor loses cross take down of time, forgets all his simple pleasures, and neglects all of his other responsibilities. He no longer took time to appreciate nature or keep in touch with his family.He was so engrossed in his work that he said, I grew alarmed at the wreck I perceived I had execute, bothered by dumb fevers and nerves to a most painful degree (34). Frankenstein allowed his ever increasing desire for knowledge and progress to control all aspects of his life and isolate him from all the outer workings of his world. Even upon the success of all he had been working towards, his isolation grew even more extreme. At that point, he had not only become completely secluded to the instruments of his laboratory, but had created a terrifying creature he feared he would never escape.Victor had become blinded by his scientific curiosity and cut himself off from the world for the sake of accomplishing his goals. He found himself neck deep in worries, feeling utterly alone. Victor Frankenstein subjects himself to isolation throughout the novel. He allows himself, in person susceptible to self isolation, something to fixate on. It is this combination that leaves him missing his family and eventually void of a connection with the world beyond his laboratory. And, as previously stated, the ache of this isolation can do great injustices to the human brain, shoving towards his dismal destiny.

peeress Macbeth is an insidious and complex character. Throughout the course of the novel, she manipulates her husband, Macbeth, and spurs him to commit his beginning murder in coif for him to ultimately achieve what she supposes he deserves. bird Macbeth is shown to the audience as a loyal wife who wants the best for his husband, but at the same time, she is portrayed as a malicious character from the very beginning of the play. The line between an horror human being, and a scheming witch, is so fine that Lady Macbeth could easily be either.The fact that the three eldritch Sisters predictions would not have become true without the supreme influence of Lady Macbeth provokes the model that, perhaps Lady Macbeth is more than an anti-mother and a schemer, perhaps she is a witch. This possibility would also change the nature of the witches from the future-seers they are portrayed as, to merely influencers of a force of events that they plan. In order to differentiate or associate Lady Macbeth from or to the weird sisters, the similarities and differences of Lady Macbeth and the witches must be explored.Firstly, Lady Macbeth and the witches both(prenominal) call on to evil forces at times of need, such as when Lady Macbeth cries Come, you pot likker/ That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,(I, 5, 39-40) to discard her feminine traits in order for her to eventually be successful in fulfilling the witches plan by spurring Macbeth to kill Duncan. This invocation signifies a link between Lady Macbeth and the supernatural, or witchcraft, which is employ by her and the witches.Soon after the invocation, she questions Macbeths manhood by telling him that When you durst do it, then you were a man/ And to be more than what you were, you would be so much more the man. (I, 7, 49-51). As Lady Macbeth discarded her womanish traits and understands the true nature of a man, she began to share a certain gender ambiguity with the witches, Banquo observes the genderles s style in the witches when he proclaims You should be women / And yet your beards forbid me to interpret / That you are so. (I, 3, 46-48). If Lady Macbeth had successfully connected with the evil forces in her invocation scene, then both the witches and Lady Macbeth exhibit an androgynous character, although Lady Macbeth only has masculine mental traits, while the witches have a masculine physical appearance as fountainhead as mental character. Another common trait between Lady Macbeth and witches is that both are anti-mothers.The myths of witches through history are seen as anti-mothers, and Lady Macbeth reveals this evil characteristic rom within herself, and the fact of a previous maternal relationship when she says I have given suck I would have pick off my nipple from his boneless gums,/ And dashed the brains out (I, 7, 54-58). This shocking statement shows Lady Macbeths evil thoughts, which no mother could have for her child, in turn making her an anti-mother, which would belike have been linked to witchcraft by the original audiences in Shakespeares day, if not by todays audiences.Parallel phrase with Lady Macbeth and the Weird Sisters are also evident in the play. The witches refer to killing swine (I, 3, 2) early in the play, and Lady Macbeth unknowingly echoes this when she refers to the two chamberlains as in a stolid sleep, (I, 7, 67). The chamberlains are sacrificed by Macbeth, to avoid any fault in their plan of the murder of Duncan. The sacrifice of swine has been known as a common act of fab witches since before Shakespeares day, and again, links Lady Macbeth to witchcraft.The use of The aforementioned term (swinish sleep) corresponding with the sacrifice of the men being described as such, would be a hint to the audience of Lady Macbeths witch-like character, and would have, once again, have connected Lady Macbeth to witchcraft for the audience of Shakespeares day. Unlike the witches, Lady Macbeth shows signs of vulnerability, and bec omes wracked with guilt. This is evident in her somnambulation scene, when she says Out damned spot Out, I say (VI, 1, 31) She, at that point in time, was haunted by the sight of bloodline on her hands, and was convinced the blood was still there, showing signs of madness as she becomes mentally unhinged. Lady Macbeths recollection of Macbeths words after Duncan was dispatch also haunted and festered within her as shown when she starts to echo Macbeths statements and fears, when she said To bed, to bed theres knocking at the gate (VI, 1, 59) When Lady Macbeth is sleepwalking and imagines that she is in hell, as shown by her statement Hell is murky, (VI, 1, 32) she does not appear on stage again, and dies offstage.The two most likely scenarios for her death would be suicide, or an act involving the doctor and/or the gentlewoman, as they were the only people that witnessed the truth about the murders. If suicide was the cause of Lady Macbeths death, as is likely, an even deeper lev el of guilt is shown and this emotional trauma felt by Lady Macbeth is not felt by the witches. These signs of weakness are contrary to the connection she had with the evil spirits in her evocation scene, and contrary to the behaviour of he witches, as they do not feel, or even show any guilt or sympathy. contempt not having a masculine appearance and showing signs of guilt and weakness, Lady Macbeth has been cleverly portrayed as the fourth witch by Shakespeare. I believe this is so, because at the time this play was written, links such as the swine description of the attendants and the calling on evil spirits performed by Lady Macbeth would have been blatant parallels and links to witchcraft for the audience in the Elizabethan era, but are perhaps more rarely understood by todays audiences.This may be because the idea of witches has been dismissed by modern society and their characteristics are not as widely known making those links somewhat outdated. Although Lady Macbeth as th e fourth witch seems less believable as a concept today, we must not look at the play as two dimensional, as it is read today, but instead learn the views of the people of the time when Shakespeares plays were written, after all, Shakespeare wrote about what he knew, and Macbeth was written four-hundred and three to four-hundred and seven days ago.

rouseual employment disaccordences atomic number 18 not only noticeable in physical and reproductive areas as far as work force and wo manpower are concerned. These physical and reproductive inconsistencys are minimal in name of the determinants of how men and women hold in as far as approximately other issues relating to their cognition are concerned (Gur et al. 1999). Sex hormones that are secreted during their information are trusty for the difference in top dog organizations of men and women. men and women abide been shown by several(prenominal) studies to learn differently due to the difference in their cognition. Kimura (2000) postulated that flush at infancy, girls gaze at objects chronic than boys an argument that gives premise to the concomitant that boys have attention problems. Their sensory systems show a discrepancy even at much(prenominal) a young age, manything that persists into old age. In step-up to the above, women tend to remember some things equivalent land marks best than the men who remember directions and distance.These are the spatial cues that the men are go bad off in as contrasted to women (Kimura 2000). A myriad of other differences have been suggested peculiarly in linguistic, interpersonal, logical and mathematical, musical, intrapersonal and linguistic among other areas. As the environment starts acting on the individual boys and girls by and by birth, they already have wired brains that show differences in how they respond to the above areas that lead to the differences.The female persons and males differences in their intellect faculties lie in their abilities rather than their Intelligence Quotient, which may be the same in girls and boys, entirely other factors held constant but the sampled girls and boys will have differences in their linguistic and most probably their spatial abilities. antithetical areas of the brain are suited for various tasks and which the males and females have differing usage abilities in. Spatial differencesOn average, studies have ensnare that male outperform female in spatial activities/ spatial visualizations similar in situations that require the gyration of objects in a given space or in manipulation of objects in one counselling or another or just mental rotation. They are in any case able to outdo women in tasks which deal with maneuvering of their way through a maze of routes but this does not include grasping of landmarks for employment as a means to remember their routes part women are able to pull in ones horns landmarks to a greater extent than men can.In addition to this, men are remediate off than women in the true statement with which they target objects either in movement or in their static positions. They also do well in disembedding dark objects. This poke outs to interception or guiding of projectiles and ability to realize any movements in the field of vision. This performance cuts across all ages as shown by Kauf man et. al (1999) that utilize the Weischeler Adult Intelligence Scales-Revised (WAIS-R) in determining fluids and crystallized differences in men and women.The study states that the ability to target an object develops well in advance puberty. The performance of men and women on Block Design, Digital Symbol and Information showed that men outperformed women in Block Design and Information fleck women did better than men in Digital Symbol. Verbal suavity In 2003, Shaywitz et al. were able to discern differences in sex as far as the brains address functional organization is concerned. They used a study called the functional resonance imaging and through this, females showed more abilities in verbal fluency than men.This included their manner of acquisition and longer spans of attention in conversation unlike men who lagged behind. They also tended to excel in memory tasks like fluency in generation of synonyms and better rapidity of denomination of matching objects or items be cause their perception skills are better than those of their male counterparts (Shaywitz, B et al. (1995,). Kimura, 1996). They demonstrate better recall ability linked to verbal fluency than men in addition to having a higher divided memory.They also show a greater ability to reckon words that begin with a certain(a) letter more than the men can do. The fields of priming, semantic and primary memories do not moreover show any difference in men and women. Men on the other hand showed better performance in semantic measures and a higher order in the crystallized factor of intelligence. due to the bigger cortical space in females assigned for language and its functions, in that respect is less space left over(p) for the working of the spatial space which implies that females cannot be better than men in both language and spatial abilities. Problem-Solving TasksThere are differences in gender as far as the brains problem-solving tasks are concerned as reported by Gur et al. (1999 ) that conducted various studies and presented test to a sample of men and women chthonian same condition. The results were basis for the conclusion drawn. First, arithmetic differences tests showed that men are higher cognitive abilities in terms of mathematics calculations and reasoning than women. In this test, set of mathematical based questions were asked to the selected sample men responded more correct and quick than women who displayed slowness and inaccuracy in calculated responses.In another experiment, a piece of paper was folded with a punched hole, and then the participants were asked to determine where punched hole shall fall if the paper shall be unfolded. Most men responded correctly and chop-chop in determining where the hole shall fall should the paper be opened than their female counterparts. Moreover, objects and images were placed before the participant and asked to rotate objects and manipulate the images. Men excelled better than women on this problem-solvi ng task.Lastly, studies show that when men and women are targeting or aiming at an object, men are more likely to get their target than women can. This implies that women are less faultless in target-directed motor skills for example intercepting projectiles. To assert this finding, the practical example that can be used to relieve this target-direct motor skill is by essence that men are good at target involving games like dart playing than women. Therefore, problem-solving task favors men than women in the sense that men perform better than women in spatial undertakings like tasks that involve mental rotating objects.Emotional cope Cognitive abilities of an individual to great extend help in process of coping with stress or depression. The essence that facilitates connection among coping with emotions and cognitive abilities is because through use of intelligence that a person can think, perceive and react to the surrounding. In this regard, intelligence needed to cope with em otions is defined as cognitive ability and content of the thought which differ greatly in men than women (Shaywitz et al. 1999 Gur et al. 1999). The meta-analyses studies conducted found that men are less affected with emotions than women.For instance, women were found to be affected by maladaptive or negative thinking about an emotional problem than male. Men usually indulge in alcoholism, aggressive behaviors and violent behaviors. While women are worse affected by the emotional since are usually depressed and can develop various eating and psychological disorders like bulimic or anxiety. Differences in precision in manual tasks Women are a bit hurrying than men in precision as far as some manual tasks like placing pegs in the holes on a given board.Coupled with their ability to recall the positions of objects more precisely than men, women show a greater likelihood of replacing an object to its initial position with a greater accuracy than men or state whether a given object ha d been displaced or not. Women therefore show a better fine motor coordination as compared to men The neuroanatomic difference in males and females has been found to contribute to cognitive abilities especially those that are sexual in nature. Females have XX genetic make-up while males have XY.These genes play a great role in differentiation and it is due to the absence of the Y chromosome in females that leads to the release of androgens which are the male hormones. These hormones cause the female to develop. Some periods when there is the release of sex hormones, there is an impact in the brain which leads to differences in cognition from the periods when there is no hormonal release. Prenatal increment period has shown the greatest levels of hormone release according to several researches done (Shaywitz et. al 2003).During puberty the levels of the hormones do rise again and these fluctuations continue throughout ones life span. Research has established that girls who were ass ailable to high testosterone levels were shown to display greater spatial skills when compared with other girls who had not been exposed to the hormone. This shows that the male hormone testosterone is responsible for the spatial abilities that males have. Males show some excellence at problem-solving in school more than females in addition to working out multiple choice tests better than females.Such examinations like SATs are performed in better by males than females who, apparently do well in written and untimed tests while getting higher boilers suit grades in their schooling years. Girls have also proved to be better performers in math than males up to high school level where they drop, an aspect that has been attributed to the inclusion of m ore spatially oriented math in which the girls appear to be lower in performance than males (Shaywitz, B et al. 1995). Males are known to have a larger brain than females with a size which is 10% larger than that of females.Some researche s have indicated that there is a correlation between the size of the brain and intellectual abilities. The males brains have more cerebrospinal and white yield than the brains of females. More white matter according to Gur et. al 2000 (cited in Shaywitz et. al 2003) is responsible for the information carry-forward to other regions of the brain thus contributing to their superb spatial abilities while the women who have more of the grayness matter enhance greater processing capacity and efficiency.As has been stated earlier on, the brain is laterized such that one hemisphere dominate t6he other in a given or given fuction(s). The brains two halves are more laterized in the performance of some cognitive functions. In males, the laterization is more pronounced than in the females due to the neurohumoral interactions mediated by the testosterone hormone. Fourie and Stuart (2006) carried out an investigation on the role of gender and temperament in Functional Hemispheric Asymmetry and perception of emotional stimuli. In this investigation, they used a total population sample of 112 with females being 58 and men 54.The sample had four groups of students who were right-handed and elect in terms of their gender, and temperament. Their levels of neuroticism, introversion and extroversion were measured using a personality questionnaire. The Divided optical Field Technique, their differential hemisphere performance regarding latency and accuracy were determined. After the use of T-square test (Hotellings), the results showed that the accuracy in terms of the response time scores in men and women had a great difference in the way the two genders process their emotional stimuli.Women were found to do so faster and more accurately than their male counterparts in the processing and response to emotional stimuli. There are also some gender differences in maladaptive thinking and coping with stressful situations. The risk of depression in men is 8-12% while in women it has been found to be between 20-26%. Disorders related to depression affect about 70% of women and 30% of men due to the fact that women show uncontrollability in perception more than men (Kaufman, 1999 Voyer, 2005).Individuals with unilateral brain lesions or damages were studied (Inglis & Lawson 2001) and it was found that males lost their verbal ability more than the females by and by both genders suffered damages in the left hemispheres. Men also lost their spatial abilities after a brain damage on their right hemispheres. Women were found to be better off than men in verbal ability even after suffering the same damage on either lobe. This justifies the fact that language and spatial abilities are bilaterally represented less in men than in women. intelligence organizationThe gay brain organization is an important part aligning for performing the cognitive tasks. The human brain has two hemispheres which are specialized in carry a specific kind of activity better that the other hemisphere. Brain organization for male is more lateralized to its cognitive functions than women brain. The major difference in lateralization of the brain is the hormonal roles (Shaywitz, et al. 1999). For instance, the testerone hormone facilitates neurohormonal linkage during early stages of cognitive development creating dimorphism in rational (Kimura, 1992).On the other hand, women brain is less lateralized with more of its portion assigned to verbal or language tasks. In electrical activities, men show they use their right hemisphere for spatial activities as opposed to women who use their left hemisphere. Conclusion In conclusion, the paper has discussed with illustrations the major gender cognitive difference between men and women. In the discussion, the paper has Spatial differences, Verbal fluency, Problem-Solving Tasks, Emotional coping, Differences in precision in manual tasks, and Brain organization.However, a point of worth to note is that there is distinct differenc e between the female and male cognitive abilities which is influenced by brain structures such as hypothalamus region. Moreover, SDN (sexually dimorphic nucleus) is smaller in women while larger for males. References Gur, RC et al.

In the last few decennaries, the schools have seen a astonishing figure of older big(p) fe young-begetting(prenominal)s returning for far direction or FE ( doubting doubting Thomas 2001 ) . This inflow has forced the educational establishments to reexamine their purposes and plans. There is a greater growing in registration in bighearted females than in contribute forces. Womans returning for FE normally return after go forthing the affirmation at a definite age to indulge in certain duties at place ( Thomas 2001 ) .One of the most aspirant breastworks for the bounteous females returning for farther instruction is happening the balance between school and class, and crowing females are frequently seen showing struggle between the two ( Thomas 2001 ) . The opposite barriers acknowledge ethnic, attitudinal, qualificatory, situational and institutional barriers ( Evans 1995 ) . Situational barriers include household limitations and deficiency of proper assume economic or otherwise. The openhanded females who work are stipendiary less than work forces in rewards ( Evans 1995 ) .Pascal and Cox ( 1993 ) stated how the cock-a-hoop females were certain that their employment chances were travel to increase by instruction. Education was in improver seen as an instrument to obtain independency from traditional household constructions ( Pascal and Cox, 1993 ) . Most of the bighearted females oculus instruction as an chance, while non all can determined it to utilize in their existing callings. Those who do are successful in fostering their present callings, and some adult females advanced to direction or superior callings ( Pascal and Cox, 1993 ) .Mau ( 1990 ) has highlighted the jobs lay outd by adult females from unalike cultural mathematical groups due to many sidelong intellect. Asia/Pacific Americans are socialized into traditional inclines and these adult females do non normally think about higher instruction doing it labored for the other adult females to take map in farther instruction. Redding and Dowling ( 1992 ) have indicated that adult females re-enter for farther instruction in order to procure a grade. Womans who play distinguishable functions at the same time have specific implores that are non met by the traditional university rites and patterns of the households ( Redding and Dowling, 1992 ) . speculative ( 2003 ) suggested that there were organisational barriers for adult females to read publicities in FE. This can be seen as a cause for apathetic status of the assorted universities towards the re-entering adult females. If adult females could represent a applaudable dish out of the senior members, conditions for adult females desiring to re-enter to finish their instruction would be more affable and friendly.This horizon recognizes the assorted barriers that are faced by the re-entering college adult females. There are different barriers that have been identified, often(prenominal) as fi scal jobs, household duties and limitations, unequal support systems, and favouritism at the establishments. These barriers frequently lead the adult females to acquire discouraged and frequently leave halfway. The instructors have to go a portion of the procedure of mainstreaming these re-entering pupils. There is a demand to heighten the continuity of the re-entry adult females and strategise the schooling for these adult females to help them in their end of instruction and self -independence.Theoretical ModelThere has been a significant addition in the registration of female pupils in schools and colleges. This addition in the rate of female pupils may be attributed to the inflow of the older adult females re-entering for instruction ( Thomas 2001 ) . Re-entry of adult females as a construct became popular in the 1970s, and refers to the phenomenon of adult females, who had non completed their higher instruction at an Orthodox age, returning to the schools for formal instruction ( Thomas 2001 ) . The adult females have to opt-out of instruction for assorted reasonableness including household duties, poorness, etc. So, the re-entry adult females have to overcharge off the other duties such as employment, committednesss of household, and other compulsory duties. Womans have restraints of clip, infinite, resources and socio-economic disablements ( Evans 1995 ) . Evans ( 1995 ) has pointed out some common barriers that the adult females face in engagement in instruction, like Cultural, Attitudinal, Qualificatory, Situational, and institutional. Tittle and Denker ( 1977 ) had pointed out the barriers as household limitations, fiscal jobs, attitudinal features and college limitations. pass ( 1985 ) to a fault stated institutional and Situational barriers as the chief barriers for rhenium come ining adult females. The cultural and attitudinal barriers are social phenomena that discriminate the function and position of adult females in the society. These barr iers can be seen all over the universe, despite wholly different fortunes predominating at that place ( Evans 1995 ) . Attitudinal differences can be attributed to the deficiency of female function theoretical accounts.While the attitudinal and cultural barriers may be understood as social elements of favoritism, the situational, qualificatory and institutional barriers make it hard for the establishments every arcminute good as the re-entering adult females to have quality instruction. The situational barriers such as household committedness, deficiency of support form the spouse, fiscal jobs, and distance from the educational establishments come in between the adult females and instruction and at the same clip do it hard for the instructors and the organisations to educate these adult females. It s been found that male spouses are non supportive for adult females to come in the traditionally male dominated sphere ( Evans 1995 ) . The attitudes towards the function of adult female s in the households and economic disagreements are some of the chief grounds that discourage adult females from re-entering ( Holiday 1985 ) .The institutional barriers that exclude adult females are sex, age, fiscal help, policies related to entrance, rigorous course of study planning and attitudes of the mental faculty and module ( Holiday 1985 ) . Evans ( 1995 ) has pointed out the chief elements of institutional barriers as unyielding hours of instruction, attending demands, a fixed agenda of course of study that makes it hard to catch up with the lost Sessionss, and deficiency of installations related to shaver attention. Furthermore, attitudes of staff and module are besides barriers to easy instruction for re-entering adult females. Discrimination in the admittance procedure, although prohibited by Torahs in about every state, relieve the private, spiritual and military academic establishments ( Holiday 1985 ) . In add-on, the differing informations on ability degrees of male and female pupils enrolled suggest that some signifiers of age and sex favoritism still exist, peculiarly related to re-entry adult females ( Holiday 1985 ) .The life style of the most adult females makes it hard for them to manage instruction with all the other duties. This consequences in favoritism against the adult females pupils who want to inscribe parttime as most of the establishments prefer full-time pupils ( Holiday 1985 ) . With the addition in the figure of educational establishments worldwide, the demand for the pupils has change magnitude drastically, but, it has been observed that these establishments would instead still prefer full-time pupils over part-timers. The institutional ordinances refering the full-time classs are such that the adult females from a low-income group or adult females with dupes can non run into the necessary demands ( Holiday 1985 ) . Evans ( 1995 ) besides recognizes the male laterality in certain topics as a barrier for re-entering adult females. Inflexible election and stringent entry demands besides make it hard for re-entering adult females to acquire in the establishments for the intent of survey ( Evans 1995 ) .The fiscal assistance available for re-entry adult females is non sufficient to run into their demands and most of the assistance is normally untouchable to them, as it is restricted to full clip pupils merely ( Holiday 1985 ) . Furthermore, information related to the fiscal assistance is non that easy available to the re-entry adult females, who thereby can non acquire to re-enter because of the fiscal issues even though there are commissariats for fiscal aid ( Holiday 1985 ) . Tittle and Denker ( 1977 ) pointed out the importance of analyzing the programming and pass of categories for parttime pupils in order to promote instruction for re-entering adult females.Vacation ( 1985 ) , Tittle and Denker ( 1977 ) and Evans ( 1995 ) emphasized the importance of kid attention installations for the ben efit of the re-entering adult females. The deficiency of kid attention installations in the educational establishments is one of the most critical jobs for the re-entering adult females ( Evans 1995 Tittle and Denker, 1977 ) . Most re-entering adult females argue that their educational chases are hampered by the demand for child care ( Holiday 1985 ) . Apart from these obvious issues, the attitudes of module and staff towards the re-entering adult females have besides been known to impede the uninterrupted inflow of these pupils ( Holiday 1985 Thomas 2001 ) . Thomas ( 2001 ) identified institutional barrier as one of the most powerful barrier for re-entering adult females. The chief barrier that the re-entering adult females face may be related to class programming, location of the establishment and a assortment of other procedural and relevancy jobs ( Thomas 2001 ) .The institutional and situational barriers besides make it hard for the instructors to actuate and educate the r e-entering adult females. The male oriented linguistic communication and male images in learning stuff make it hard for the re-entering adult females to associate to the course of study ( Evans 1995 ) . The domestication of adult females s labour and calling aspirations is one of the grounds for the deficiency of motive in the adult females ( Evans 1995 ) , and it can be really hard for the instructors to maintain these adult females motivated to analyze and prosecute a calling.The favoritism against re-entering adult females has been seen in different communities around the universe, although non much research has been put into the barriers for adult females returning for FE in the development states. The surveies refering African American feminine Students ( Thomas 2001 ) , adult females in South Africa ( Kok and Van der Westhuizen, 2003 ) , Asian/Pacific American Female ( Mau 1990 ) and Women in South Asia ( Khan et al. , 1986 ) , all point towards barriers in instruction for re -entering adult females.One of the barriers has been recognised as self-concept features ( Tittle and Denker, 1977 ) . This has been related to the calling pick adult females make, particularly the re-entry adult females. Female pupils choose humanistic disciplines, societal scientific disciplines and human surveies, instead than proficient topics, which can be perceived as a structural stereotype that is propagated by adult females themselves ( Evans 1995 ) .Due to the barriers in instruction for re-entry adult females faced by adult females and instructors likewise, the adult females should besides take involvement and duty for their ain instruction by pull offing their clip efficaciously and take parting actively in the educational procedure ( Thomas 2001 ) . Returning to the school for instruction may be hard via media for the adult females, but the adult females should be motivated and committed to dishonor educational grades ( Thomas 2001 ) . The adult females need to believe in societal support systems and use them actively and efficaciously in the chase of instruction.Certain adult females re-entering the educational establishments for farther instruction believe that it can increase their employment chances ( Pascal and Cox, 1993 ) . Merely a little group of adult females use their grades to foster the bing callings, while some adult females find it hard to happen instruction utile to foster their callings ( Pascal and Cox, 1993 ) . However, there are cases of adult females traveling to other callings and progressing to higher professional callings ( Pascal and Cox, 1993 ) . Thomas ( 2001 ) has mentioned that re-entering adult females get excited about re-entry to colleges and farther instruction. There is an immediate addition in assurance in re-entering adult females ( Killy and Borgen, 2010 ) , but there are complains of function overload and struggles ( Thomas 2001 ) .One of the grounds for the administrative defects of establishments in turn toi ng the jobs of the re-entering adult females seems to be the deficiency of senior adult females leaders in higher instruction and deficiency of female function theoretical accounts. Furthermore, the deficiency of adult females in the administrative places besides advocates the favoritism and sex-role stereotyping prevalent in the society and establishments. There have been surveies in line with barriers that the adult females face in re-entering educational professions ( Kok and C. Van der Westhuizen, 2003 ) and the jobs they face in acquiring promoted ( Wild 1994 ) .Many subjects emerge from the survey of barriers for re-entering adult females. Killy and Borgen ( 2010 ) identified seven subjects sing the experience of re-entering adult females in North America. Passage to maturity and assurance crisis were the two chief subjects, followed by favoritism, diverse calling forms, sex-role stereotyping, the persist for significance, and multiple functions ( Killy and Borgen, 2010 ) . H owever, the bulk of the surveies ( Evans 1995 Tittle and Denker, 1977, Mau 1990, Thomas 2001 ) have pointed out towards three chief subjects in Institutional barriers, Situational barriers, and Cultural barriers.

In the first act, Churchill has created a surreal surroundings for all of the women. We find, during the credit line of the meal, that all of the women have things in common. Each of the women had children apart from Isabella. Lady Nijo and Griselda however, had to live without cognise their children because of their husbands, in both cases the husbands removed the children. Dull Gret is slightly different, she experienced living with her children and bringing them up, however her oldest and youngest were killed during war. pontiff Joan does not know what happened to her baby, as she was stoned to death as soon as she gave birth, she assumes they killed it. Marlene, the leader of the women had a completely different horizontal surface to tell, however she does not talk of it during cultivate One. Marlene became pregnant at 17 and let her sister, Joyce adopt the baby because at the time Joyce could not cash in ones chips pregnant. Marlene has since, had two abortions. Griselda, Lady Nijo and Marlene ar all similar in the fact that they all had to sacrifice their children for a particular reason. Griselda sacrificed her children to make the earthly concern she loved happy.Griselda does not arrive to the meal until quite late, the other women are all drunk and successful and Griselda appears un noticed. She appears polite but shy and does not want to make a fuss but last gives into a pudding, Oh if everyone is. I dont mind. Marlene automatically puts her in the spot light by introducing her as having the fairy-story life. All of the women become interested in Griseldas story and startle questioning it. Griselda, whilst talking appears unchanging plica to the Marquis, But of course a wife must obey her husband. And of course I must obey the Marquis. Throughout the story of Griseldas life, Marlene acts as if she is almost showing off that she already knows the story, Oh, you wait. This shows that Marlene sapiditys a need to be included and in control at all times. Unlike Lady Nijo, Griselda spent six weeks with her first born, a girl, Nijo finds this hard to believe, Much better to do it straight away. Only Nijo truly understands Griseldas life and she has been put in the resembling position, Marlene finds it an outrage that she let the Walter take her baby, Walter was bonkers and obviously, it will be hard for Gret to accept as she brought up her avow children, Bastard.Even when everybody else is being un fair and negative about Walter, Griselda remains with her upbeat attitude, whilst still shy she shows her feelings. Griselda takes up oft of the colloquy when she arrives, and when this conversation has ended she doesnt talk much more. Throughout toy One and throughout Griseldas life story Lady Nijo listens, and doesnt talk an awful lot about her orbit and history. She talks about her past in and amongst everyone elses conversation, although they listen to her, they do not pay as much attention to her as they do to Gr iselda.Lady Nijo does not appear as hurt and as faithful to her children as Griselda did to hers, this is probably because Griselda spent a short time with her children and Nijo did not. Lady Nijos first baby was Akenbonos, a girl and he received it and brought it up with his wife. Her second, was to an unknown and the trio and fourth children were Ariake the priests. Nijo never saw her third child after it was born and admits feeling nothing at all for her third son, her fourth child. I think that this is because Ariake had died ahead the birth and she was still grieving him, I didnt want to see anyone. In Act Two Scene Two we are introduced to Marlene, a character brought in from Act One, Joyce, Marlenes sister, Angie, Joyces daughter and Marlenes niece and Kit, Angies friend.The undermentioned scene concentrates mainly on Marlenes niece, Angie and her younger friend, Kit. We begin to realise that Angie maybe slightly simple and turbulent as she talks to Kit about controlling objects with her mind and things falling from the walls in her house, Last iniquity I was in bed and suddenly a picture fell down off the wall. The agree continually ignore Angies make, Joyce, shouting them from the house. This shows disrespect of the children to their niggle. The childlike attitude of the children continues throughout the play, they continue to ignore the mother shouting and continue bantering as children would, I dont want her to like me. This eventually progresses into Angie suggesting that Joyce is not her biologic mother, and Marlene, her aunt, is. I think Im my aunts child. I think my mothers really my aunt.For a girl of Angies mentality to suggest something as complex as this must suggest that her and Joyce do not have a loving, sharing relationship, however, Angies all explanation for this suggestion is my mother hates her. We learn further on in Scene Two that Joyce does not think very highly of Angie I dont know whod have her, mind. This seems str anger for a mother to pronounce to another child about her own daughter. This is possibly where Churchill is trying to insinuate that, at heart, Joyce does not thrill for her child as much as a normal mother would. Showing cracks in the couples, mother daughter relationship.Another loss of respect between Joyce and Angie is shown when Joyce calls her a Fucking rotten little cunt. And states You commode stay there and die, this either shows that Joyce is now sick of Angie not listening to her or if she good does not have enough respect for her. Act Three actually happens a year before Act Two happens. Therefore the old dress that Angie puts on in Act Two, is the dress that Marlene gives her as a present in Act Three. Marlene and Joyce seem to have an awkward relationship, they are constantly fence when Marlene first arrives, I dont mind seeing you. Great, I feel really welcome. The pair wait until Angie has by at peace(p) to bed before talking about her and her life, Angie re fuses to go to sleep fore quite a plot because her aunty is there, but eventually she gives in. Joyce then begins to talk about Angie, I dont know how you could leave your own child. , Marlene does not react badly to this vicious statement, she simply replies, You were quick enough to take her. I feel that this shows that Marlene does not know how much Joyce has done for her.She obviously does not appreciate that Joyce has brought Angie up the best that she could so that Marlene could move away and concentrate on her career. Joyce begins to take ownership of Angie as the argument continues, showing that she has a bond with her child, motherly love. Course I do, shes my child. Instead of moving away and getting a problem and making money, Joyce took Marlenes baby and gave it a life. The relationship between Marlene and Joyce begins to break up as the two begin to blame each other for the mistakes they have made in life, I did get pregnant and I lost it because I was so tired look ing after your fucking baby. The Act ends with Joyce and Marlene apologising and Joyce going to bed, leaving Marlene alone to have another drink. Angie then wakes up calling for her mother and walks downstairs, when Angie realises that its Marlene sat there and Joyce has gone to bed she only mutters two words, frightening frightening. This symbolises Angies weirdness and simple mindedness. Is she speaking about the conversation between Joyce and Marlene or is she speaking about the fact that she thought Marlene was her mother ?
