The broken mirror. A self psychological treatment perspective for relationship violence. (1/1137)

Clinicians face formidable challenges in working with male perpetrators of domestic violence. Many treatment programs use a confrontational approach that emphasizes male entitlement and patriarchal societal attitudes, without honoring the genuine psychological pain of the abusive male. Although some men with strong psychopathic tendencies are almost impossible to treat, the majority of spouse-abusing males respond best to an empathic, client-centered, self psychological approach that also includes education about sociocultural issues and specific skill building. Understanding the deprivations in mirroring selfobject functions from which these men typically suffer facilitates clinical treatment response. While insisting that men take full responsibility for their abusive behavior, treatment approaches can still be most effective by addressing inherent psychological issues. Group leaders who can offer respect for perpetrators' history, their experience of powerlessness, and their emotional injuries in primary relationships are more likely to make an impact.  (+info)

Childbirth customs in Orthodox Jewish traditions. (2/1137)

OBJECTIVE: To describe cultural beliefs of Orthodox Jewish families regarding childbirth in order to help family physicians enhance the quality and sensitivity of their care. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: These findings were based on a review of the literature searched in MEDLINE (1966 to present), HEALTHSTAR (1975 to present), EMBASE (1988 to present), and Social Science Abstracts (1984 to present). Interviews with several members of the Orthodox Jewish community in Edmonton, Alta, and Vancouver, BC, were conducted to determine the accuracy of the information presented and the relevance of the paper to the current state of health care delivery from the recipients' point of view. MAIN MESSAGE: Customs and practices surrounding childbirth in the Orthodox Jewish tradition differ in several practical respects from expectations and practices within the Canadian health care system. The information presented was deemed relevant and accurate by those interviewed, and the subject matter was considered to be important for improving communication between patients and physicians. Improved communication and recognition of these differences can improve the quality of health care provided to these patients. CONCLUSIONS: Misunderstandings rooted in different cultural views of childbirth and the events surrounding it can adversely affect health care provided to women in the Orthodox Jewish community in Canada. A basic understanding of the cultural foundations of potential misunderstandings will help Canadian physicians provide effective health care to Orthodox Jewish women.  (+info)

Childbirth customs in Vietnamese traditions. (3/1137)

OBJECTIVE: To examine and understand how differences in the cultural backgrounds of Canadian physicians and their Vietnamese patients can affect the quality and efficacy of prenatal and postnatal treatment. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: The information in this paper is based on a review of the literature, supplemented by interviews with members of the Vietnamese community in Edmonton, Alta. The literature was searched with MEDLINE (1966 to present), HEALTHSTAR (1975 to present), EMBASE (1988 to present), and Social Sciences Abstracts (1984 to present). Emphasis was placed on articles and other texts that dealt with Vietnamese customs surrounding childbirth, but information on health and health care customs was also considered. Interviews focused on the accuracy of information obtained from the research and the correlation of those data with personal experiences of Vietnamese community members. MAIN MESSAGE: Information in the texts used to research this paper suggests that traditional Vietnamese beliefs and practices surrounding birth are very different from the biomedical view of the Canadian medical system. The experiences and beliefs of the members of the Vietnamese community support this finding. Such cultural differences could contribute to misunderstandings between physicians and patients and could affect the quality and efficacy of health care provided. CONCLUSIONS: A sensitive and open approach to the patient's belief system and open and frank communication are necessary to ensure effective prenatal and postnatal treatment for recent Vietnamese immigrants and refugees. Education and awareness of cultural differences are necessary for physicians to provide the best and most effective health care possible.  (+info)

Gender, work and illness: the influence of a research unit on an agricultural community in The Gambia. (4/1137)

Changes in employment opportunities and medical services are exploited by men and women in different ways. This paper examines gender-based variation in the selective use of employment and health opportunities in a Gambian village which has been the subject of medical and nutritional research by the Medical Research Council (MRC) for 43 years. The seasonal workloads of 105 men and women in Keneba were compared during one calendar year. Women carried a heavier burden of agricultural labour, while men had a higher rate of waged employment. The impact of the MRC field station on the local economy was assessed and evidence of associated male dependence on MRC employment found. Illness reporting patterns and the treatment choices of men and women were examined. Women made greater use of the MRC medical service, while men resorted more frequently to local remedies and healers. Female dependence on the MRC medical services is suggested by the data, and may be linked to the greater attention paid to them by researchers and medical practitioners.  (+info)

Choice and accountability in health promotion: the role of health economics. (5/1137)

Choices need to be made between competing uses of health care resources. There is debate about how these choices should be made, who should make them and the criteria upon which they should be made. Evaluation of health care is an important part of this debate. It has been suggested that the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion is limited, both because the methods and principles underlying economic evaluation are unsuited to health promotion, and because the political and cultural processes governing the health care system are more appropriate mechanisms for allocating health care resources than systematic economic analysis of the costs and benefits of different health care choices. This view misrepresents and misunderstands the contribution of health economics to the evaluation of health promotion. It overstates the undoubted methodological difficulties of evaluating health promotion. It also argues, mistakenly, that economists see economic evaluation as a substitute for the political and cultural processes governing health care, rather than an input to them. This paper argues for an economics input on grounds of efficiency, accountability and ethics, and challenges the critics of the economic approach to judge alternative mechanisms for allocating resources by the same criteria.  (+info)

Health seeking behaviour and the control of sexually transmitted disease. (6/1137)

What people do when they have symptoms or suspicion of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) has major implications for transmission and, consequently, for disease control. Delays in seeking and obtaining diagnosis and treatment can allow for continued transmission and the greater probability of adverse sequelae. An understanding of health seeking behaviour is therefore important if STD control programmes are to be effective. However, taboos and stigma related to sex and STD in most cultures mean that gaining a true picture is difficult and requires considerable cultural sensitivity. At the moment relatively little is known about who people turn to for advice, or about how symptoms are perceived, recognized or related to decisions to seek help. It is argued that such knowledge would assist programme planners in the development of more accessible and effective services, that studies of health seeking behaviour need to include a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, and that studies should include data collection about people who do not present to health care facilities as well as those who do. A pilot protocol for studying STD-related health seeking behaviour in developing countries is briefly presented.  (+info)

Planning with PRA: HIV and STD in a Nepalese mountain community. (7/1137)

The application of Participatory Rural Appraisal methods (PRA) to the topic of sexual health enabled us to explore key factors concerning local people's perceptions regarding HIV/AIDS and STDs and to plan collectively to address the emerging issues. Conducting the process in a gender sensitive way enabled people to feel safe enough to express their own opinions, and having gained confidence in their peer groups, to share ideas later with the whole community in a joint planning exercise. Nevertheless one group was identified as difficult to reach and whose needs could not be met in a group for reasons of confidentiality. While the methodology itself clearly has great potential in planning around specific health issues, there are, nevertheless, limitations. Although the approach and the tools used are simple and accessible, the skills needed to analyze the information are more complex and demanding. The training given did not manage to equip facilitators adequately with these analytical skills and in the future will be more experience based and geared towards developing analysis and the ability to formulate questions. In addition, since the project is not permanently resident in the area, intensive support within the District is necessary to increase the chances of sustainability.  (+info)

Practicing participatory research in American Indian communities. (8/1137)

The purpose of this article is to explore the historical issues that affect research in American Indian communities and examine the implications of these issues as they relate to culturally sensitive, respectful, and appropriate research with this population. Methods include review and analysis of the literature and examination of our collective experience and that of our colleagues. Recommendations are given for conducting culturally sensitive, participatory research. We conclude that research efforts must build on the establishment of partnerships between investigators and American Indian communities to ensure accurate findings and analyses and to implement culturally relevant benefits.  (+info)

There are approximately seven million adult gay and bisexual men in the United States and 120 million adult gay and bisexual men globally. This highly readable volume of original essays explores the cultural dimensions of AIDS among men who have sex with men (MSM).. The traditional emphasis in HIV/AIDS research within gay communities has focused on sexual behavior and psychological issues. Yet to better understand the social and cultural dimensions of the disease, and to halt the spread of HIV, it is essential to recognize and understand the culture of MSM. Cultural anthropologists, unquestionably, are in a unique position to achieve this understanding. Douglas Feldman has gathered a diverse group of experts to contribute to this collection, and the volume features a wealth of scholarly data unavailable elsewhere.. ...

28 Rich Woods. I, have come to disagree with that. Extremism can be a good thing - I think we all agree that it is a good thing we are all anti-slavery extremists for example, and the tendency to blame extremism tends to be a bit of a cop-out.. The accusation of extremism is used to insulate ourselves, of making the perceived extremists something other than us, which means we tend not to learn from them. This is why I am actually opposed to culture - because you get the exact same thing with tribalism where people derive their sense of mattering from cultural norms they stick to, and any threat to that such as people with different cultural norms. Leave aside all of that and ultimately we are all one species - each human being matters because that is all any of us are. To people like the EDL Islamist extremists matter because they are a threat to the "English way of life" - a threat to their cultural identities.

Introduction. SECTION C QUESTION 7: Using the structural, historical and cultural dimensions of the sociological imagination, identify the critical issues that relate to how western medicine has responded to the challenge of alternative medicine. In todays public health system, western medicine dominates over all other forms of medicine. Having said so, there has been a rise in the use of alternative medicines. In response to this challenge, western medicine is trying to fight off this challenge by excluding, subordinating, limiting and incorporating alternative medicine into mainstream medicine.

1.0 Introduction Organizational Culture Organizational culture is defined as a system that organization can distinguishes the other organization and also share the meaning held by members. Its provides employees with a clearer understanding of "the way things are done around here" (Divedi, 1995). All the aspects of organizational life are the cultural dimension. Cultural issues receive little specific attention, even in those organizations. It is also showing how was the person in an enterprise will feel, think, act and value. Organizational culture is guided by ideas, meanings and beliefs of a cultural (socially shared) nature. There is no unique corporate culture and it doesnt lower the implication whether managers think that culture is too soft or too complicated to bother about (Alvesson, 2012). A greater synergy is comes from a strong culture. It can bring people together. People can know more friends and know each other if they have opportunity to communicate. Besides, a strong culture ...

In general, combative systems both armed and unarmed closely reflect the sociocultural milieu that is/was their provenance. As great an impact (in some cases greater) is made by contemporary conditions within which the system currently lies. Using the basic outlines of aggressive combative behavior and predatory combative behavior, we should be able to gauge on which side of the behavioral fence a particular system will tend to fall.. Further on, I will cover the biological and socio-cultural inhibitory mechanisms involved in combative behavior, as well as how systems of fighting arts, i.e., combative systems evolve along the lines of affective and predatory combat/combative behavior in their cultural milieu. We will see that the socio-cultural background and functional aims of a system will at least partially select for traits associated with primarily affective combative behavior or predatory. In addition, however, we will see that quite often, man s adaptability has allowed him to select ...

A prevailing concept of cognition in psychology is inspired by the computer metaphor. Its focus on mental states that are generated and altered by information input, processing, storage and transmission invites a disregard for the cultural dimension of cognition, based on three (implicit) assumptions: cognition is internal, processing can be distinguished from content, and processing is independent of cultural background. Arguing against each of these assumptions, we point out how culture may affect cognitive processes in various ways, drawing on instances from numerical cognition, ethnobiological reasoning, and theory of mind. Given the pervasive cultural modulation of cognition-on all of Marrs levels of description-we conclude that cognition is indeed fundamentally cultural, and that consideration of its cultural dimension is essential for a comprehensive understanding.
This questionnaire has been developed based on the Cultural Orientations Framework (COF) by Philippe Rosinski described in his book Coaching Across Cultures (Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2003, www.CoachingAcrossCultures.com).. The COF is an integrative framework designed to assess and compare cultures. It includes a range of cultural dimensions/orientations grouped in seven categories of practical importance to leaders, professional coaches and anyone striving to unleash human potential in organizations: sense of power and responsibility, time management approaches, definitions of identity and purpose, organizational arrangements, notions of territory and boundaries, communication patterns, and modes of thinking. The COF builds upon the findings of anthropologists, communication experts, and cross-cultural consultants, including Florence Kluckhohn and Fred Strodtbeck, Edward Hall, Geert Hofstede, and Fons Trompenaars, among others.. A cultural orientation is an inclination to think, feel or act ...

Intercultural competence (IC) as an essential part of conceptualization of the cultural dimension in FLT has been promoted by educationalists as the most preferred type of competence. One of the challenges of incorporating IC into FLT is to move from the recognition of IC as a model of teaching (Byram, Nichols and Stevens, 2001) to the development of practical applications. This can be due to the fact that teachers do not have sufficient knowledge of the theory behind the concept and consequently, have difficulties to implement the curriculum requirements with regards to IC into their teaching. The purpose of this study was to investigate how teachers of English in upper secondary schools in Sweden interpret the concept of IC and, accordingly, what is their view of culture in English language teaching. In order to answer the research question, I used an exploratory investigation by adopting a qualitative research method in form of semi-structured interviews. The results are similar to the ...
The specific scope of the minor is to spread the understanding of the questions connected to gender, starting with theoretic and cultural dimensions and ending with the concrete aspects of society and daily life linked to behavior, education, family and work life, and political and social participation It will analyse the questions tied to legality, equality and stereotypes in various aspects of society and of both Italian and international culture, and will outline the actions and the policies acting in favor of the changes that would guarantee a better relationship between the genders. The specific aspects include: pedagogy of gender and epistemology of their differences; gender equality in the business market, as well as the results from education, academics and in work environments (gender balance), welfare and both international and familial rights; community and national regulations, tools for sustaining them (commissions and committees for equal opportunity, advisor) and the necessary ...
In this paper aspects of the term cross-cultural are discussed. It is common that this concept is used in a non-reflexive way in technological and cultural focused literature. Somehow it seems to be taken for granted that interactions are cross-cultural if they are committed between people from different countries or from different parts of the world. I argue that the same interactions can be both cross-cultural and in-cultural depending on which theoretical standpoint the researcher chose to enact in the analysis. Based in my research I analyze some interviews, in order to explore if they should be regarded as cross-cultural or in-cultural. The aim is to inspire discussions among researchers in technology areas about what the term cross-cultural really means. ...

There are a small minority of activists who say that there is a cultural identity in being born deaf and that we should not destroy that cultural identity by preventing children from being born deaf." Ballard added: "We would like to retain, as far as possible, parental choice, but it has to be in conjunction with a clinician so that people know exactly what they are choosing ...

VOLUME 2 (2000), ISSUE 4 (WINTER) TRANSNATIONAL IDENTITIES: THE HONG-KONG INDIANS. CAROLINE PLUSS. SUMMARY. Communities with transnational links can call upon multiple skills, knowledge and social networks that are rooted in different parts of the world in order to construct their identities. Such identity constructions can be regarded as strategies in the competition for social and economic benefits. This article examines the construction of the identities by Indian residents in Hong Kong in order to understand why certain identities were adopted and for what purposes.. The article analyzes, in addition to the initiatives of Indians in Hong Kong to shape new identities, what are the characteristics of Hong Kong that afford both opportunities and constraints for transnational identity constructions. The determinants examined are the demographic characteristics of Indians in Hong Kong, the values of the British colonial system, the perception of Hong Kong Chinese by the Indians, the business ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper contributes to cross-cultural research by identifying the theoretical and methodological strengths and weaknesses of selected previous research related to accountants values and judgments. The objective is to inform and guide both the theoretical specification and treatment of culture and its operationalisation and methodology. It is argued that enhancement in the quality of cross-cultural research in accounting can be accomplished by providing greater insight into the depth, richness and complexity of cultural and acculturational similarities and differences between and across nations by complementing the quantified dimensional based cultural measures with relevant historical, sociological and psychological literature. Methodological recommendations include the need to establish content equivalence in the accounting constructs or issues being examined, the potential influence of non-controlled contingency variables, such as differences in organisational

It is the relationship between the gene and the endo-environment of the organism, which it participates in the creation of, that mediates the activity of the gene. The study of the gene must also include the study of all that might happen the gene, which is a set of possibilities constrained and shaped by the organisms internal environment, which in turn is mediated by its external environment. Furthermore, the expression of the gene is moderated by the non-coding DNA in the chromosomes of the organisms (which may act as an analogue for the systems of organisation between people if we continue to stretch the metaphor) thus we can imagine contrasting mutations in the non-coding DNA with cultural adaptations, and imagine them also diffusing across the boundaries of societies, regulating the activities of people, who are akin to individual genes, in the Neo-Darwinian frame ...

OBJECTIVE: To adapt and validate a Brazilian Portuguese version of the European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale.. METHODS: The cross-cultural adaptation (translation, synthesis, back-translation, expert committee review, and pretesting) and validation (assessment of face validity, content validity, and internal consistency reliability) were carried out in accordance with the literature. The European Heart Failure Self-Care Behavior Scale assesses key components of self-care: recognition of the signs and symptoms of decompensated heart failure (HF) and decision-making when these signs and symptoms arise. It comprises 12 items (range 12-60, where lower scores indicate better self-care).. RESULTS: The sample comprised 124 HF patients with a mean age of 62.3 ± 12 years. The Cronbachs Alpha internal consistency was 0.70 and the intraclass correlation coefficient for reproducibility was 0.87.. CONCLUSION: Face and content validity, internal consistency and reproducibility have lended validity ...
Some of the irritating and helpless feelings as a father or mother comes when your youngster is sick and blatantly refuses to take the medicine that you know will help make her higher. The course will last 3 hours a day for the precise topics and a pair of hours a day for the Brazilian Portuguese course for foreigners; 5 days every week, from Monday to Friday, for 2 weeks, totaling 10 lessons: 10 in the morning shift, which include the precise course taught within the English language and 10 lessons of Brazilian Portuguese for foreigners, totaling a workload of 100 hours.. Different options were obtainable: if you happen to wished a licence to observe, quite than to change into a totally fledged Fellow of the RCP, you would take your diploma abroad, or at one of many Scottish universities, where courses were shorter (within the case of Aberdeen, nearly non-existent as you can typically purchase your degree), and more likely to embody practical coaching in pharmacy, botany and anatomy ...
Traditionally, the taboo system common in the Pacific had been an efficient manner of protecting forest resources. The system unfortunately has been drastically relaxed, in most societies, through the power of money and decreasing resources. Increases in population have put further pressure on resources, aggravating the deterioration of this traditional obligation. Today, conservation and preservation are only attractive if the sustainable management of the resource involved provides some practical gain. If not, destructive exploitation can easily result. In Fijis context, the development of ecotourism has been based on the understanding that landowners will benefit through income generation (via employment and business opportunities). Preservation is secondary. Whilst the development of ecotourism in Fiji is a link between utilisation and preservation of the forest resources, it will only be effective in forested areas that have specialised and unique features, to which visitors will be ...

It can be argued that overall the evidence for culturally adapted EBIs is encouraging. However, cultural adaptations may also carry the risk of alienating members of those groups they are aimed at. One of the risks is that mental health professionals and researchers often make the assumption that individuals from specific subgroups possess certain cultural characteristics9,10 and fail to take into account that within a larger group there are a number of subgroups with different characteristics, which may be overlooked by attaching an overarching cultural identity to them. These subgroups may also be those with the highest risk of developing mental health problems. We can refer to them as subcultural groups which exist within a larger racial population and share similar life experiences and a mutual sense of belonging.. For subcultural groups racial identity may be secondary and the primary identity may be either more in tandem with the mainstream culture where they reside or related to a ...

INTRODUCTION. The last 15 years were characterized by significant changes in clinical and hospital services, especially concerning to safety issues in patient care, which has become the focus of several publications on this topic[1-5].. However, despite numerous interventions to improve patient safety, progress has been slower than originally anticipated. A large-scale study in the USA has shown that error rates have remained relatively constant over the last few years, with one in 10 hospitalized patients likely to suffer an error during hospitalization[1].. In the field of surgical practice, technological and scientific advances have led to a significant increase in the number of procedures worldwide, which are often performed in unsafe conditions, interfering with the promotion and recovery of patients health[6]. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 7,000,000 complications and 1,000,000 deaths occur annually during or immediately after surgery[7].. According to Wachter[8], a ...
It is only in retrospect that I have begun to think of my father, Adrien Baillargeon as a superhero and a socio-cultural icon. In his time, the words had not yet come of age. Nevertheless, the words superhero and socio-cultural icon fit him to a tee long before he became a professional wrestler. At first, the image of a superhero was more in the French Canadian tradition of the legendary Paul Bunyan (Stevens 2001). At 65
301.00). These data, taken into account together with the low educational level of the women that were included in this sample, support that an adherence of 57% on an 18-month interval is a significant achievement.. Moreover, some cultural issues that might play a role here should be mentioned. First, there might be a cultural difference in understanding the effect of preventive and early detection interventions (22, 27, 28), especially in a country such as Brazil where there is no structured breast cancer screening program; thus, women are historically not used to undergoing regular mammography or other early detection measures. Second, certain cultures are more fatalistic about cancer and perceive fewer benefits from screening (29), which is, in the authors perception, an important issue in Brazil, especially in lower socioeconomic classes. Finally, in many of these women, concerns about their own healthcare are frequently neglected because of more urgent needs, such as childcare and ...
Gender is fluid. This means that a persons gender does change over time. While many religions claim that gender is the same all our lives, they are misinformed and use the term incorrectly. To prove this, I will give you an example. When an infant is born with a penis, they are assigned the gender of a boy not a man. When does this transition from boy to man occur? This varies with the cultural identity and often rests on the shoulders of the person undergoing the transformation. I dont know when I became a man, it certainly wasnt when I hit puberty. To this day, many comment that I am just a big child. This does not change my sex, nor does it mean I am prepubescent. Often when males tease one another about being emotional they tell each other to "stop being a woman." This doesnt imply that their penis has transformed into a vagina, but that they are acting in the manner of another gender (which is another rant for another day). This shows that gender changes over time, and in some cases ...

sex marriage make life more difficult for Catholics, in any way?". Your question would be easy to answer if this was simply a change to the political and legal landscape in our country. In that case, it would be easy to say "Youre right! It doesnt!" But, things arent so simple. Im sure youve noticed that this isnt just a political or legal issue, its a cultural issue. And weve reached an interesting time with the pendulum on this issue swinging so rapidly.. 1) Our political and cultural conversation has been "Twitterized". Id say "sloganized", but its slightly more sophisticated than that. Theres no room for reasoned, intelligent debate. Our media reflects this, being nothing more than a series of "Breaking News!!" and a bunch of experts yelling at each other about it.. 2) Our cultural conversation has taken on the tone brought to us by the political motives of Bush & Co.

More than 80 percent of the people of Bhutan depend on agriculture and animal husbandry for their livelihood. The farming system in Bhutan is highly dependent on the forests to sustain it. Non-wood forest products are harvested and used daily without much thought. The full impact of NWFPs on the rural economy has not yet been documented and assessed. Animal husbandry is an important contributor to the rural economy. Almost every household maintains a few cattle for draft power, animal products and for manure. Many people maintain large herds as a status symbol or as insurance in times of difficulty. The animal population has been recorded as 300,000 cattle and buffaloes, 28,000 yak, 40,000 sheep, 42,000 goats and 22,000 horses. The impact of these animals, which depend on the forests for fodder, has not yet been fully appreciated. As a general practice, herders drive the animals into the forests to forage for whatever is available and thus much of the forest is used as grazing land. During ...
The Yupik or Yupiaq (sg & pl) and Yupiit or Yupiat (pl), also Central Alaskan Yupik, Central Yupik, Alaskan Yupik (own name Yupik sg Yupiik dual Yupiit pl), are an Eskimo people of western and southwestern Alaska ranging from southern Norton Sound southwards along the coast of the Bering Sea on the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta (including living on Nelson and Nunivak Islands) and along the northern coast of Bristol Bay as far east as Nushagak Bay and the northern Alaska Peninsula at Naknek River and Egegik Bay. They are also known as Cupik by the Chevak Cupik dialect-speaking Eskimos of Chevak and Cupig for the Nunivak Cupig dialect-speaking Eskimo of Nunivak Island.

With the internationalization of e-commerce, it is no longer viable to design one user interface for all environments. Web-based applications and services can be accessed from all over the globe. To account for this globalization process, software developers need to understand that simply accounting for language translation of their websites for different countries and cultures in which they operate is not sufficient. Developers must exhibit sensitivity for the nuances that exist in all cultures if their e-commerce sites are to be successful in gaining acceptance in the domestic markets. Indeed, todays developers must be charged with the task to think globally but act locally. The problem posed to researchers and developers alike is to identify a set of universally accepted design guidelines that are useful to developers in deigning cross cultural websites. Current researches have applied Hofstedes cultural dimension model to explain cultural differences in web-based applications and suggest ...
Spanish vs Portuguese. Termed as romance languages, the Spanish and Portuguese are the most widely spoken languages today. Though the two languages are very closely related, they have very significant differences.. One can see that people who speak Portuguese can understand Spanish easily but it is not likely that Spanish speakers can understand Portuguese that easily. When talking about the letters in the two languages, the Spanish alphabet has 28 letters and the Portuguese 23.. There are a great number of words in Spanish and Portuguese language, which are spelled the same but pronounced differently. There are other words, which are pronounced almost the same but spelled differently.. ...

Often in the writing center tutors are trained, as are many students, that writing is an object-both a product and that which must be produced. The arguments over "good" and "bad" writing are arguments based on neoliberal capitalist discourses surrounding the selling and consuming of texts, be they written, digital, or multimodal. Therefore, "good" writing is writing that can be produced for the purposes of selling it to consumers (academics, the public, and so on). While writing is a product and does serve a larger capitalist goal, writing is not only a product. Writing is not only an object, but an action-a type of cultural practice and way of doing. Though these cultural practices of academic writing is deeply tied to classed (upper-middle-class) and raced (white) assumptions and ideologies, this cultural practice is a useful discourse to learn and one that is taken on or embodied in scholars neither identifying as upper middle class or white. It is in this embodiment-this "putting on of the ...

A 14-year-old. "Thats a pretty name./Even better". Im starting to understand the wonder of including a small child in the game, as it lets the Comic Irregulars do all sorts of silly things with the screen caps. "The fastest course to peace is to crush dissent with overwhelming destructive power" - this seems to be the behavior of real world leaders, of real world politics. The problem is, it doesnt work unless you get 100% completion. Let a small group of rebels stay alive and fester, and they can teach their children what they want them to believe, and overturn you. Would-be conquerors and occupiers in real-life have consistently found that people with a strong sense of cultural identity will continue to pass that cultural identity down no matter how much you try to force a new name, or a new label, or a new flag on them.

This volume offers the reader a wide and updated view of some of the most important approaches to three key questions in contemporary syntactic theory: What are the operations available for (syntactic) structure-building in natural languages? What are the triggers behind those structure-building operations? Which constraints operate on the structure-building operations available? All the chapters in this book aim at providing new answers to these questions on the basis of a detailed discussion of a wide range of phenomena (gapping, Right-Node-Raising, Comparative Deletion, Across-the-Board (ATB) movement, tough-constructions, nominalizations, scope interactions, wh-movement, A-movement, Case and Agreement relations, among others), and using evidence from a rich variety of languages (Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Croatian, English, German, Icelandic, Japanese, Spanish, Vata, or Vietnamese, etc.). The proposals presented clearly illustrate the shift in the locus of the explanation of linguistic

Behavioral Studies Standard 1- Understands that group and cultural influences contribute to human development, identity, and behavior. Benchmarks: Understands that cultural beliefs strongly influence the values and behavior of the people who grow up in the culture often without their being fully aware of it, and that people have different responses to these influences; Understands that punishment for "unacceptable" social behavior depends partly on beliefs about the purposes of punishment and about its effectiveness; Understands that socal distinctions are a part of every culture, but they take many different forms; Understands that people often take differences to be signs of social class; Understands that the difficulty of moving from one social class to another varies greatly with time, place, and economic circumstances; Understands that heredity, culture, and personal experience interact in shaping human behavior, and that the relative importance of these influences is not clear in most ...
General strain theory (GST) (Agnew, 1992, 2001, 2006a) is an established criminological theory. Although the theory has been examined by many and enjoys empirical support, some limitations of previous studies need to be addressed. First, previous studies have not incorporated all major types of strain in their models; hence, the effects of these strains on delinquency are unclear. Second, many previous studies did not include negative emotions and even negative emotions other than anger. Finally, and the most serious limitation, many previous studies rely heavily on samples from Western countries, mostly the U.S.; thus, possible cultural influences are ignored. Although a few studies have moved forward by using subjects from Asia (e.g., China, Korea), these studies only provide empirical results regarding whether GST is applicable in other cultures. The lack of comparable samples from both Western and Eastern cultures hinders direct comparison. The present research contributes to the theoretical body

Since the mestizo identity promoted by the government is more of a cultural identity than a biological one it has achieved a strong influence in the country, with a good number of biologically white people identifying with it, leading to being considered mestizos in Mexicos demographic investigations and censuses due the ethnic criteria having its base on cultural traits rather than biological ones.[224] A similar situation occurs regarding the distinctions between indigenous peoples and mestizos: while the term mestizo is sometimes used in English with the meaning of a person with mixed indigenous and European blood, this usage does not conform to the Mexican social reality where a person of pure indigenous genetic heritage would be considered Mestizo either by rejecting his indigenous culture or by not speaking an indigenous language,[225] and a person with a very low percentage of indigenous genetic heritage would be considered fully indigenous either by speaking an indigenous language or by ...
To give another analogy, when a woman creates a piece of pottery for certain practical purposes we can see the product as a cultural artefact; but with how much richer meaning does that piece of pottery become endowed when it has accumulated several generations of iteration and elaboration, subjected each time to comparison, praise, study, copy, and so on? It seems to me that these processes over time lead to a higher form of cultural production, a more deeply meaningful reflection of what it is to be human and thus (whether it s a pot, a fabric, a picture, a piece of wrought metal, a song or a fragment of poetry) we come to produce aspects of culture that we recognise as art rather than merely value-neutral articles of craft. Sure, all are aspects of culture: but not all, I think, are equal ...

Some societies have more of a singing tradition than others, related most likely to the retention of collective values and struggle, a sense of community and belonging. In his study of Finish and Swedish choruses, for example, Durrant (2005) noted "that singers identify themselves socially as well as musically with a group and that choral activity enhanced these singers sense of national and cultural identity. . ." Here in most regions of the U.S., pursuit of the American Dream has caused many generations of immigrants to leave collective values behind in exchange for autonomy and promotion of self (see above reference to materialism). This trend towards isolated independence and away from communal interdependence appears to accompany a decrease in familial and cultural singing practices. Inadequate practice of or exposure to participatory singing in the home or neighborhood yields an increasing percentage of adults who believe themselves to be non-singers. This belief has often been instilled, ...

ABSTRACT: Artificial life-forms were created with less than 400 genes in the laboratory demonstrating that a small number of genes were adequate to support the basic functions of life. Man has about 30,000 genes which is the general order of genes in higher life-forms. These extra genes carry the information required for the survival of the species under ever changing evolutionary pressures. Unlike in the lower organisms, man has a very low ratio of the number of genes expressed in the brain to the number of neuronal connections, leaving a large scope for epigenetic influences to play a significant role in deciding the behavioral response of humans. Ever since man invented group living and cultural practices, the rate of change in the inheritable traits quickened. As genes are relatively slow as replicators, memes proved to be faster for replicating the cultural information. However, it appears as though the replication and transmission of information by memes is not under the control of man ...

Generally most people back home would have the impression that its great to work in the UK. From what most international graduates say, and myself, its a totally different kettle of fish to which the one main upside is that the currency we earn here has pretty good purchasing power. Every country has its own set of troubles of course, and the UK is no different. My personal opinion is that Id be happier back home - due to proximity to family, fantastic food, and the local cultural values. But for now, I am thankful to have a job - theres still the almost-a-year-long queue back home which Ive already kinda entered. Just too easy to rot away at home post-exams ...
files. Complete handling of date translation for each language/culture is done inside a dedicated date handler module. The need for a separate module comes from the requirements to handle culture-specific parsing and displaying of dates. For example, the month and day order is different between most European countries and the US. Also, each language has its own set of acceptable modifier and qualifiers for the date: things like "from X to Y" or "between X and Y" may have different word order. Same with "around", "calculated", "estimated". Add to this calendar names, and you have a compelling need for a dedicated module.

Student dormitory as a social and cultural space plays an important role in students' satisfaction from university and higher education and their educational performance, which is why understanding the living conditions of dormitories and their management is necessary to improve it. The present article, while conceptualizing the quality of dormitory life, uses survey method and questionnaire technique to study the quality of dormitory life among 2500 students in 10 university districts and 22 universities in the country. The findings showed that in the welfare dimension, students were dissatisfied with the facilities of the room, the building and the dormitory, the cultural facilities and the physical welfare facilities. In the cultural dimension, on the one hand, students were dissatisfied with the cultural activities and programs in the dormitory, and on the other hand, they would not enjoy their leisure time. In the social dimension, the identity of social pathologies among girls was mainly
The purpose of the present study was to translate and cross-culturally adapt the screening questionnaire OMPQ into Spanish and then to examine the psychometric properties of the Spanish OMPQ. No difficulties were encountered in translating the questionnaire, and the Spanish Version of the OMPQ was demonstrated to be reliable and valid to identify Spanish patients with musculoskeletal pain at risk of developing into a disabling persistent problem.. There are some specialized methods of translation and cross-cultural adaptation of questionnaires of quality of life and health which can greatly facilitate the translation process, especially by avoiding certain problems that may arise in drafting the consensus document, as well as an understanding of reverse translation. Patients demonstrated no problems in completing and understanding the Spanish OMPQ. This facilitated the original authors approach for the OMPQ.. The determination of a six-factor structure using maximum likelihood extraction was ...
As the US becomes more ethnically diverse, health care practitioners must learn about the perspectives and values of a variety of cultural groups. Of interest is how these cultural values intersect with the dominant culture, especially in the health care arena. This article explores values such as filial piety and preservation of harmony that influence decision making among Asian and Pacific Islander cultures, with specific illustrations from 6 of these cultures (Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Hawaiian, and Samoan). The literature, along with the authors observations suggest potential areas of conflict between the more collectivist values of Asian and Pacific Islander cultures and the more individualist orientation of the US health care system. Implications for practice and research are presented. ((c) 1999 APA/PsycINFO, all rights reserved ...
American Samoa is an unincorporated territory of the United States of America. The citizens of American Samoa are US "nationals" and not US "citizens," but they are allowed to travel freely between the American Samoa and the US Mainland. They are not required to obtain green cards or visas to stay or work in the United States, and they are allowed to serve in the US armed forces (and often do). There are some ways that American Samoas special status as an unincorporated territory have interesting legal consequences. The US Constitution is not necessarily the supreme law of the land in American Samoa, and Samoan cultural norms, in particular, those related to the ownership of property and public displays of religion actually trump certain well-settled US constitutional rights in American Samoa.
