First, the conditions of the American literary marketplace are briefly described.

...Age and youth representation in the McDonald’s advert Parallel Lives In the McDonald’s advert parallel lives age and youth are represented in both stereotypical and different ways. The aim of the advert is to show that even though people appear to have completely different lives everyone has something in common E.g. McDonalds. When the audience are first introduced to the “youth”, loud RnB music as diegetic sound and then becomes diegetic sound when close up of the youths shown. The youths are also hanging around with a group of friends, commonly known as a gang. The gang is out on the streets. This is implying that it is common for teenagers to hang around on the streets, playing music and disturbing others. They are wearing dark colours for example black, maroon, dark brown and dark blue while also wearing hoodies. Their trousers are hanging low, resulting in their pants being on display. From using these conventions, McDonalds are giving a stereotypical representation of teenagers-loud, a disturbance and also not being able to dress properly. Whereas the older man is on his own. This is implying that it is common for the older generation to be on their own, perhaps being lonely. He wears neutral colours like creams, beige, and brown, grey and tan. He is wearing his trousers up to his waist and also wearing braces to help keep them up. In addition to this, he is wearing his jacket over his coat. Overall this is suggesting that older people dress completely covered up......

...Joshua Roberts CM 101: Youth Ministry Philosophy & Leadership 17 May 2015 My Philosophy for Youth Ministry I believe that youth ministry is vital to the growth and effectiveness of the church—local and universal. In order for the church to grow, the adult generations of the church needs to insure the faith by training children and young adults “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”(Ephesians 6:4). When the youth of the church are not taught the importance of a vibrant and active relationship with God, then the church will see its ranks become thin and aged. With age comes wisdom and experience, but with youth comes energy and determination. In order for the church to be effective it must see youth ministry as a vital part of the body. Since the church needs youth ministry, it is important that the youth ministry itself has a vision and structure to provide organization to reach goals and growth. I believe that youth ministry needs to focus on three key goals or values in order to be effective in the local church. These values are to connect, grow, and serve. These three values will provide structure and vision to ensure a healthy youth ministry. The first area that one should start with when building a youth ministry that will be profitable to the church and its families is connection. We need to make sure that our teens and parents of teens are connecting with God and others. Connecting with God is the base foundation that any believer should be building......

...Hope for Our Youth Jentel Paolino CHS 111.99 March 31, 2013 Early Childhood education (ECE) is a frequently used term when the discussing the welfare of today’s children. From the early age of four children are introduced to an educational environment in hopes of developing the necessary skills to bloom into well rounded individuals. What a child learns in their early years falls heavily on the shoulders of caregivers and teachers because these people play a major role in growing youths lives. However our educators can’t do it alone and with the assistance of federally funded resources such as Head Start, special education, and after school programs children are able receive the necessary help that they need. Head start is a program that provides inclusive early child development services to children and families with low income, these services include free and reduced school breakfast and lunches as well as additional help in reading and math (Morrison, 2012). This program positively impact children in ECE programs because it provides children who are less fortunate or come from disadvantaged backgrounds with a high start and foundation for school success. “Most advocates of public preschool argue that early schooling of low- income children is an investment that pays off in the long term by reducing the number of children who will perform poorly in school, become teenage parents, commit criminal acts, or depend on welfare (Chen, 2008). Parents also benefit from......

...In words of James” Youth is the joy, the little bird that has broken out of the eggs and is eagerly waiting to spread out its wings in the open sky of freedom and hope.” Power of Youth Youth is the spring of Life. It is the age of discovery and dreams. India is of largest youth population in the world today. The entire world is eyeing India as a source of technical manpower. They are looking at our youth as a source of talents at low costs for their future super profits. If Indian youth make up their mind and work in close unity with working class people, they can hold the political power in their hands. Indian youth has the power to make our country from developing nation to a developed nation. Is it a dream? No, their dreams take them to stars and galaxies to the far corners of the unknown and some of them like our own Kalpana Chawla pursue their dream, till they realize it and die for it in process. hopes of youth The youth hopes for a world free of poverty, unemployment, inequality and exploitation of man by man. A world free of discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, language and gender. A world full of creative challenges and opportunities to conquer them. But let us convert these hopes in reality. Role of Youth: The role of youth is of most importance in today’s time. It has underplayed itself in field of politics. It should become aspiring entrepreneur rather than mere workers. It can play a vital role in elimination of terrorism. Young......

... * COMPUTER USE IN MILITARY Without a computer, life at UNC would be very different. For example, taking this class without a computer would be nearly impossible. Today, computers have opened up a door in the military. Computers help our military train and educate members in ways that were not possible before. In short, computers help to simplify the complexities that our military faces and allow our military to more easily assess these problems in an efficient manner. This cuts down on risks associated with training new members of the military. Also, the introduction of computers allows for a much faster training speed. * Computer Simulations There are many reasons why simulations were a perfect fit for the military, the most obvious of which is training. Training for war is a dangerous business. It is also expensive, seeing as many people need to be trained to operate many millions of dollars worth of machinery. Simulations of real life situations, and real machinery, offers the military a safer and more cost effective way to train their soldiers. Now, mistakes in training that would have previously resulted in death, injury, or huge monetary costs only result in a failure of the simulation. Therefore, it is easy to see the enormous impact computer simulations have had in the military, and the lives of the soldiers that comprise the military. * Communications Learning and communicating successfully in large groups is key to surviving on the front line in the......
