Cultural Exchange: Immigration leads to exchange of cultural values. It results in an exchange of knowledge and expertise between two nations. It serves as an opportunity to interact with people of other countries. It gives a platform for people from diverse backgrounds to come together and share their views.
Economic Growth: Immigration results in an open global market. It gives a global perspective to the social and economic growth of society, thus widening the scope for development. With new opportunities in career and education, comes economic growth. Supporters of immigration believe that it has the potential of bringing about global prosperity
Population Imbalance: Crowding, that is, increase in the population density in certain regions, is one of the basic disadvantages of immigration. Migration of people from one country to another leads to crowding in one nation as opposed to deserting of another. It implies an excessive use of the resources of one nation that may lead to imbalance of natural resources.
Transfer of Diseases: Immigrants may bring with them, diseases that prevailed in their country. Disease-causing agents may transfer from one country to another through immigrants, thus leading to spread of diseases. To reduce the risk of transfer of diseases, many countries have started carrying out screening of immigrants on their arrival in the country. Reportedly, AIDS was transferred to the United States in 1969 through one infected immigrant from Haiti.
Unfair Distribution of National Wealth: Those opposing immigration argue that the jobs available in the country and the nation's wealth are its property and that allowing immigration implies the distribution of this property among the non-natives. Immigration implies the distribution of a nation's wealth to those who do not have a right on it.
Financial Burden: The costs incurred in the provision of resources such as education and health facilities to the immigrants are...
...lampposts. In 2012, a similar incident happened in Los Angeles and resulted in the teen host beaten and hospitalized. The main cause behind these accidents is children being unaware of the viral nature of these social networking sites.
4. Students who are heavy social media users tend to have lower grades.
According to statistics, students who use social media had an average GPA of 3.06 while non-users had an average GPA of 3.82 and students who used social networking sites while studying scored 20% lower on tests. College students’ grades dropped 0.12 points for every 93 minutes above the average 106 minutes spent on Facebook per day. Two-thirds of teachers believe that social media does more to distract students than to help academically.
5. Social networking sites harm employees' productivity.
51% of people aged 25-34 accessed social media while at work. Two-thirds of US workers with Facebook accounts access the site during work hours. Even spending just 30 minutes a day on social media while at work would cost a 50-person company 6,500 hours of productivity a year. 51% of workers think work productivity suffers because of social media.
6. Social networking site users are vulnerable to security attacks such as hacking, identity theft, and viruses.
Social networks do not scan messages for viruses or phishing scams, leading to large-scale problems like the 2012 virus Steckt.Evl spread from Facebook's chat window. 68% of social media...

ABC’s headline, “WHO: Liberia Will See Thousands of New Ebola Cases,” leads the reader to believe that the article focuses only Liberia and how many Ebola cases have been documented there. However, it also discusses what the United States and Britain plan to do to help and what the current healthcare workers there think about that. “The Guardian’s” headline, “Ebola will infect thousands more people in Liberia within weeks, says WHO.” The article reports that the “UN agency says conventional measures to control deadly virus are not working, with patients overflowing new clinics.” “The Guardian’s” headline is a great action header that informs the reader what the article will be talking about. “The Guardian’s” headline delivers a far more alarming tone to it, revealing the uncontrolled state that this epidemic is really in.
Both articles start out with very similar information. ABC’s article was focusing in on relaying information about the countries that were infected and how many treatment beds they had. ABC then goes on to discuss in detail what the United States will be sending over, for example a 25 bed facility for healthcare workers that have become infected. The Guardian’s Article goes into far more detail about the statistics of the countries infected; rather then what is being sent to help.
“The Guardian’s” article it is much shorter...
...Takes To Write a Good Article
Telling a story through writing is a practiced tactic as old as time. Each individual has a certain trait or skill that is brought to their writing, and it is due to this that a multitude of styles, or ways to write, have evolved over the years. It is also because of this that one may distinguish between a strongly written piece, and one that is poorly written. When thinking of a favorite book, or movie even, we remember those that show the most personality. Is it relatable? Understandable? The author has a way of grabbing the reader’s attention, almost as if they’ve escaped from their lives and fallen into the story that is being told. Now, though it is not often one reads an article to “escape” or lose themself in it, these factors are still necessary in creating a great piece of writing. A strong and memorable article, which gains the respect and appreciation of its reader, provides interesting detail, favorable use of vocabulary, and omits any irrelevancy.
Article number one, written by Hollie McKay of Fox News, dives right into the topic at hand. While the reader can appreciate her concise approach, she leaves out important details explaining any background information pertaining to the interview. This is scarcely recognizable after reading the second article, by Cavan Sieczkowski of the Huffington Post. Sieczkowski starts with a brief statement from...
...choosing suitable hardware.
Cons: The OS certainly isn’t the best optimized one around and it shows in the poor battery performance. So even though the batteries are getting larger, running time is not. Not everybody is comfortable with being asked to stick to Google when using their phone which is exactly what Android does. A user needs a Google account to use. Android is not even a decade old and we already have close to half a dozen versions of it, too much fragmentation one has to say. Desktop syncing is virtually absent here and the less said about carrier skins, the better.
Pros: iOS is hard to beat when it comes to media playing abilities, it is certainly better than Android. Although Android Apps are catching up at a faster rate, Apple Apps are still way ahead in terms of quality and quantity; at last count iOS users had a choice of more than 200,000 Apps. iOS has one of the best UIs around and it gets updates way faster than other platforms. Gap between development and release is minimal. Apple has incorporated desktop syncing in iOS and this is a big plus over Android.
Cons: The Apps store has been a success for Apple, no doubt. But it seems it will generate the developer’s ire sooner than later with its penchant for rejecting new Apps without giving any valid reasons. Android soundly beats iOS when it comes to the notification system; in fact no other OS can hold a candle to Android in that department at the moment. Another...
...President in order to extend his term, as long as they also remain in power.
On the other hand, a Constitutional Convention is called through a two-third vote of the members of the Congress. We elect delegates who are not from the members of the Congress to draft the amendments to our Constitution. In order to prevent the political motives of the members of the Congress, we are getting people outside of the system to revise it. Unlike in Constituent Assembly, the welfare of the people is the main concern in drafting the changes to be made. Even though it will be the elected delegates who will formulate the Charter Change, the senators and congressmen will still be an instrument, since they will be the ones who have the power to call for a con-con.
In my personal opinion, Constitutional Convention is more preferable to achieve the equal rights and benefits of the people, since the elected delegates are professionals from different walks of life. Therefore, the amendments that they will draft are most likely to be in favor of the majority, and not only for their personal welfare. Some of the people in the authority can be quite abusive of their power. There can be schemes and connivance in order to take advantage and pursue their motives. That can be a big risk for our country, since the Constitution is the paramount law of the land, to which other laws must conform....
...debated and examined. One of the most interesting articles is ArticleV which details the process of ‘amending,’ or revising, the Constitution. There are two ways to go about the amending process. According to usconstitution.net, “the first method is for a bill to pass both houses of the legislature, by a two-thirds majority in each. Once the bill has passed both houses, it goes on to the states. This is the route taken by all current amendments. Because of some long outstanding amendments, such as the 27th, Congress will normally put a time limit (typically seven years) for the bill to be approved as an amendment.” Secondly, "Congress ... on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which ... shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States (Philip 26)." This procedure has never been used to amend the Constitution.
One pro of this Article is the fact that the executive branch, or the President, does not have an official role in the amendment process. He cannot veto a proposed amendment. This limitation to power, an example of the system of ‘check and balances’ so central to the philosophy of the Constitution, prevents the President from engaging in self-serving ratification.
In an article entitled Is it time...

The Corporate Con: The Internal Fraud and The Auditor
In the movie the Corporate Con: The Internal Fraud and the Auditor there were several different people who seemed like your everyday "Joe," but were actually criminals who committed fraud. Some of the frauds committed in this movie were: Cash Fraud, Accounts Receivable Fraud, Expense Fraud, purchasing fraud, and corruption. Focusing on two individuals Pam and John, each of these criminals committed either cash or accounts receivable fraud.
Pam was a graduate from high school who found work soon after graduation. She felt she wasn't getting paid enough for her work so she started stealing cash from the register and other places from where she worked. The type of fraud she committed was cash fraud. Cash is usually the focal point of many accounting entries. Cash on deposit in banks and petty cash, can be stolen through numerous different schemes. The schemes committed are either on-book or off-book, depending on the point of occurrence of the fraud scheme. Generally, a company focuses on cash scheme frauds, rather than other types of fraud because money getting stolen from the company is the easiest fraud that can be committed. Some of the basic cash fraud patterns are: skimming, voids/ under-rings, swapping cash for checks, alteration of cash receipt documentation, fictitious refunds and discounts, journal...

People should not use tattoos as self-expression because many dilemmas appear after the art is on the body. Yes, I do consider tattoos as art; but people need to think about the artwork in the long run. The way the body ages has a big impact on how tattoos will look over time. Tattoos can also influence success in employment opportunities. Plus, tattoos are permanently on the body. There are many reasons to get a tattoo, but you also have to think about the future. Body changes, employment opportunities, and the fact that tattoos are permanent are my reasons on why I think tattoos make bad examples of self-expression.
The aging process dramatically alters the look of tattoos over time. The human body is always changing and going through stages. We start off growing and our skin stretches, but over time we lose bone density and start shrinking and sagging. Also, due to the lack of protection from the sun’s exposure, tattoos lose their coloring and details. This means you could either live with a dull tattoo or go through the pain of paying and getting a touch up on the already scared tissue. Through the years, the lovely art of gravity makes the skin stretch and sag, which makes the tattoo lose the shape, clarity, and artful appearance. The colors could also run together, which to me looks like people are trying to study for an inkblot test. These are just some reasons why the aging...
