Migration is the movement of people across a specified boundary for the purpose of establishing a new or semi-permanent residence. External migration is where residences change between a residential unit in the Demographic Surveillance Systems (DSA) with one outside it, and internal migration is where residences change from one residential unit to another in the same DSA (Indepth 2008). Migration is a process of civilians moving from one region to another region by some push and pull factors. Certain push and pull factors like brain drain, racism, better living standards and higher chances of employment cause a particular person to migrate. In recent years, there has been a significant rise of migration within the global community. Although, migration has some disadvantages in the sense of racism and brain drain, its benefits far outweighs the disadvantages that come with it. The trend of migration is a positive phenomenon as it contributes to the ever needy job vacancy in the host country, as well as strengthening the economy in both origin and host country and creates a better society with a variety of culture in the host country. The infamous Brain Drain is one of the greatest downfalls of a country, since, it works against developing nations. It can be defined as the mass emigration of technically skilled workers that will migrate from one country to another to have a better income. The reason behind this mass migration is based on the countries of origin. In particular, a social environment is a cause of the brain drain, while in terms of individual purpose; it refers to a preference of lifestyle. These people are usually skilled professionals who migrate to pursue higher salaries (Karpilo 2010). According to CNN World; the National Unions of Students in Europe (ESIB) was suffering a serious long-term internal brain drain because more European students are going to Britain due to educational and employment reasons. Many people from Poland migrate to the West...
...conservative whites denied African Americans their exercise of civil and political rights. The region's reliance on an agricultural economy continued to limit opportunities for most people. Negros where exploited as share croppers and laborers. As life in the South became increasingly difficult, African Americans began to migrate North in great numbers.
Most of the African-American literary movement arose from a generation that had lived through the gains and losses of Reconstruction after the American Civil War. Sometimes their parents or grandparents had been slaves. Their ancestors had sometimes benefited by paternal investment in social capital, including better-than-average education. Many in the Harlem Renaissance were part of the Great Migration out of the South into the Negro neighborhoods of the North and Midwest. African Americans sought a better standard of living and relief from the institutionalized racism in the South.
One man in particular that was a part of the “Better –than-Average Education” thought process, worked for a higher education and were always stressing the importance of having an education in there African American culture, His name alone would inspire thousands and millions of people, and would even go as far as having his name recognized in other countries; his name was Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is...

Research: The Great Migration
The Great Migration was the mass migration of more than six million African Americans from the rural South to the cities of the North and West from 1916 to 1970. This had a huge impact on urban life in the United States. African Americans were pushed out of the rural areas because of whites.
Millions of African Americans went to cities like Chicago during the Great Migration like Bigger Thomas in Richard Wright's novel Native Son. African Americans often faced harsh living conditions and racism. African Americans such as Bigger Thomas had the ideal “American Dream”, but could not
endure it because of the racial barriers. This mass movement helped in the revival and strengthening of cultural beliefs and values it also helped to keep their community strong and alive. The Great Migration was not the first huge relocation of African-Americans in the nation. After being held as servers and slaves large numbers of men and women left the plantations to live in new areas after the Civil War. Bigger Thomas and other African Americans during the Great Migration went through economic, physical, and mental challenges.
The Great Migration spurred a massive increase in competition for jobs. Economic opportunities were limited due to racism and...
...Brain drain, brain gain or brain circulation? Critically discuss the migration flows of highly skilled migrants across the globe and the impact of this movement on host and origin countries
According to a report published by the CSO in September 2012 net outward migration for Irish nationals increased to 26,000 in the year to April 2012, from 22,400 in the previous year. It is a necessity to discover if this mass exodus of skilled migrants will be detrimental to Irish society in the coming years, or if there are significant advantages stemming from our best and brightest abandoning the country. Interest in the topic is growing and there have been dramatic increases in empirical evidence and research on this subject. Over the past decade, Factiva (a business information and research tool owned by Dow Jones & Company) shows an average of 5,000 news articles in English per year about the impact of brain drain, a testament to just how relevant this subject is (Gibson and Mckenzi 2011).In this essay I will define and discuss the three concepts brain drain, brain gain and brain circulation using specific examples from all over the world, in an effort to determine which of the three is most prevalent.
It is important to define the term 'highly skilled migrant' to understand the impact they have on the economies of a country. There is no agreed international definition of ‘highly-skilled workers’, thus the...

...Many educators suggest dress codes are intended to teach students what is acceptable in the workforce. This seems reasonable. However, it assumes there are uniform workplace expectations. Work does not only take place in offices and factories. Some employers—some dotcom companies, for example—care less about how their employees dress and more about their work. In addition, as technological advances continue, some traditionalcorporations encourage employees to work at home, with no dress codes required. There are also the people who run their own home businesses.
The lack of uniform approach to acceptable workplace dress does not mean each workplace does not have expectations. Rather, it means students need to adapt, not conform. Students need to learn to dress appropriately based on context. Dress codes do not facilitate this learning. Instead, dress codes teach students that conformity and obedience to authority are most important. Individuality is suppressed. Student voice is suppressed.Many educators suggest dress codes are intended to teach students what is acceptable in the workforce. This seems reasonable.

The Benefits of College
One’s senior year of high school is full of questions that no body wants to face. Some of these questions might include: what am I going to do with the rest of my life? Am I going to end up flipping burgers for a McDonalds or will I go on to college just to come out with a bunch of debt? Furthering ones education can be thought of a waste of time, money, and effort for the little outcome it has. However, the positive outcomes of college out weigh the negative outcomes. “Education is the Most Powerful Weapon Which You Can Use to Change the World”(Mandela). This quote stated by Nelson Mandela should be more than enough proof for people to know that moving forward with ones education can do nothing but good for them. Going to college is one of the essential things needed in order to have a good life because it helps people gain knowledge, relieve money problems, it can help people mature, and broadens the options that one can have in his or her life.
With out schooling, everything in life would be at a standstill. Gain of knowledge is what has made today’s world the way it is with technology along with other necessities of life. With out the opportunity to learn, we would not have the every day objects we have now. This computer that I am typing on would not exist, making me have to hand write all of my thoughts down on paper. Knowledge also helps people to gain confidence....
...School Uniforms are Necessary
“I do not want to wear that hideous, scratchy, and uncomfortable uniform another day,” these are the words that emanated from the Yudkowsky home every morning at seven o’clock. Mrs. Kelly Yudkowsky recalls the daily conversation she had with her children regarding the importance and benefits of having school uniforms. However, Mrs. Yudkowsky does not stand alone in her opinion, over the past decade the adoption of school dress codes and uniforms in American public schools has expanded tremendously. According to the U.S. Department of Education statistics, in 2010 nearly 1 in 5 public schools required a school uniform, up from just 1 in 8 a decade earlier. That is a huge growth in uniform requirements in American state schools (qtd. in Bennett). A school uniform is an outfit that is picked out by the school’s administration that every student who chooses to go to that school must wear. Although there are some critics who argue that a school uniform violates a students’ right to freedom of expression and can cause a financial burden on poor families, school uniforms should be mandatory for everyone in primary and secondary school, because it increases students’ self-esteem and school unity, it helps promote school safety, and it helps students resist the peer pressure to buy trendy clothing.
Some critics say that by enforcing a school uniform on students it consequently infringes on the student’s right to express himself. While it may be...
