...to support@urkund.se  B 1. Give an outline of the various attitudes to the show Boys and Girls Alone expressed in “Letters to the Editor” (text 1) and “I was right to put TJ on TV” (text 2) In the first part of the text “Letters to the Editor” we read how Channel 4 explains to Dr. Richard House that the children are safe and it is all good. How the children’s welfare comes in first place and that the parents can talk to their child whenever they want to and even take them out of the show if that is necessary. The text is all positive and Andrew Mackenzie who writes the letter makes sure that it can’t be misunderstood in any way that the children are safe. The other part of the text is written by Dr. Richard House who is a Senior Lecturer in Psychotherapy. This part of the text is total opposite from the first. Dr. House means the program is “a grotesque social experiment conducted on child guinea-pigs”. It is easy to hear how he is against the program. He thinks it is really bad for the children’s psychology because the program brings the children in the “fake” safe environment. You can tell that Dr. House means this is wrong because then they don’t get to learn how it is in the real world. So in Dr. House’s opinion this is just entertainment for the British population and child abuse. The other letter “I was right to put TJ on TV” are a letter written by one of the children that participated in the programs mother. She writes about how glad she is that her son......

...Letter to the Editor Letter to the Editor In trying to meet the needs of aging adults and the elderly there are many caregivers, and responsible parties to assist with aiding an aging adult. Each individual and each situation has unique circumstances. However there are many people involved in the care and decisions surrounding older adults. Many times when aging individuals begin to need assistance, or help the question is who will take this responsibility, who will protect the elderly? More often than not family members are the first to step and take on the responsibility of elderly family members. Granted family may not always be the best option for taking on the responsibility of another, there may alternate motives, or the family may not be providing the best care. This is why it will really depend because each individual’s situation will differ from another. In some instances an aging adult may not have any family that can take on this responsibility. Therefore in some instances close friends or acquaintance may need to take this role. As stated previously this will depend on the individual circumstance of the aging adult. There may be instances where friends or acquaintance may not be the best option; they may not be protecting the elderly. Additionally there are also times that elderly individuals are not able to make decisions; there may be diminished competency which does not allow the person to make choices for themselves. Hospitals, community organizations,......

...Kirsty Archer RE: ”Sydney cyclist loses function in hand after collision with car” I write to you in relation to the before mentioned article you have written in the Sydney Morning Herald. Though I do feel for those who were injured in this collision, it begs the question; should they be on our roads at all? In Sydney alone, tax payers have facilitated a bike path plan at the cost of $5.4 million that will now be removed. In its place the government has proposed spending an unimaginable $76 million on a European-style cycle way. So in a city already crippled by congestion, we have decided to narrow roads to assist cyclists? Yet they pay no registration, no green slip, have no motors, no indicators or mirrors and weigh a mere 9kg on average more than the pedestrians (weight of bike) we do our best to shelter on footpaths? In the article it is suggested that bike lanes be installed on the stretch of road where the collision occurred, where does it end? The common complaint amongst motorists about cyclists is that they ride in large groups. Instead of being in a single file formation, they resemble a cluster and ride dangerously close to road lanes. I frequently observe cyclists on the wrong side of the road, ignoring traffic laws, going through red lights and often fail to indicate their intention of turning. I strongly believe that something needs to be done in order for this unfortunate situation to not be repeated. If cyclists want to be treated like a motorist...

...School Bullies Editor: Maureen Downey, Reporter AJC.com Editor Title: Is the intense focus on bullying in schools changing kids or overloading them? Student: English 135 Letter to the editor 7/9/14 School Bullies I’m writing in reply to Maureen Downey’s “Is the intense focus on bullying in schools changing kids or overloading them?” feature of the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s guest blog. Lately parents have to worry about their children safety while they’re in school, tell me this, what good are the administrations, if they can’t do a simple thing, like protecting the students? Bukhari definition of bullying, “Bullying is an abuse of power that takes the form of ongoing aggression involving words or actions by individuals or groups. And directed towards particular victims who are unable to defend themselves”. From my point of view as a victim I think that there should be more penalty toward school bullies. Their victims suffer a lot of humiliation and there got to be an end to this misery. I strongly agree with you when said “No child should have to live with daily harassment or torment at school”. Bullying is becoming widespread within the school systems all over the world. First, is Bullying is becoming widespread within the school systems? Children are afraid of attending school because they are afraid of being beat, tease, and humiliated. Should they be going through these trial and tribulation or should be enjoying their youthful years in a......

...Letters to the Editors Daily Dawn Karachi letters@dawn.com Outrageous is the word. For that is how the Prime Minister of Pakistan’s reported act of giving a three million rupee wrist watch to an actor of average propensity should be described. That the gift was made from public money to an actor who cannot even speak the national language properly (neither for that matter, can the prime minister himself) goes beyond doubt, for they are not there to squander their own wealth in rewarding citizens, or undertake those countless trips abroad, nor buy ostentatious livery commensurate with their station, except from the debt-infested economy where money can be borrowed at will to fuel their desires. Prime Minister of Pakistan has not only set an ungainly example of how a poor, hapless peoples’ hard earned wealth is laid waste as if it was enemy property, but he has no moral justification in doing so unless he was doing it from his own pocket. In order to atone for a bad deed the Prime Minister’s office must ask the gift back from the beneficiary. Since that is not likely to come about in the Islamic Republic, I urge upon the veritable political parties, through those public representatives peopling the assemblies and the senate, and those countless NGO’s with enough clout to apply enough moral pressure on the government to retract and deposit the gift back into the government treasury (Toushakhana), unless of course the beneficiary is prepared to buy it at the price...

Unit 4 Letter to Editor

...Unit 4 Project: Letter to the Editor October 24, 2009 The Washington Post 1150 15th Street NW Washington, DC 20007 Dear Editor: I am writing this letter in response to the article by Alan K. Simpson entitled, “A Sentence too Cruel for Children.” Simpson’s discussion concerns the decision that will be rendered during the oral arguments held by the U.S. Supreme Court on November 9th with respect to two cases; Sullivan vs. Florida and Graham vs. Florida. The deliberation will determine whether it’s cruel and unusual punishment to sentence a 13 year old and a 17 year old to life in prison without the possibility of parole for a crime that did not involve the taking of a life constitutional. His position is illustrated in a re-visit to his early childhood; he confesses to being on probation at the age of 17 for destroying federal property, yet reveals the admiration he had for the parole officer’s genuine concern expressed in his ability to listen. The turning point was at the age of 21 when he spent a night in jail for hitting an officer; again he was given the opportunity to turn his life around, and he did. Sullivan is now a lawyer who works with juvenile offenders, and parents who are aware of his history also request his help with their children. He narrates his personal experience in an effort to plead with the U.S. Supreme court to decide in favor of giving other young people the same second chance. Simpson effectively argues his position......

Letter to the Editor, an Article

...JUAN MAGGIE FOX Dear Editor, In the article, “First Lady Proposes Bon on Junk Food Marketing in Schools” from nbcnews.com states that Michelle Obama is against fast food advertising in school campuses. “Our classroom should be healthy places where kids are not bombarded with ads for junk food”, where her exact words in the white house. School should be a place where kids study and interact with healthy and educational material and not a marketing place for junk food companies. “If you can’t sell it, you ought not to be able to market it”, said U.S. Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack. Vilsack mentions as well that there are hundreds of millions of dollars spend a year in just marketing foods and drinks to kids in school. I strongly believe that all this should be banned since advertising persuades kids to buy more junk food and that is unhealthy for kids especially since kids spend forty hours in school a week. Mrs. Obama does right in proposing that junk food advertising should be banned from school, as I grew up most kids around me in school were not overweight but this was in the early 2000’s. However now things are very different, as I drive by school I see many kids who are eagerly eating unhealthy food such as chips and the bad thing is as they’re coming out of school, most of these children seem overweight.

English-School Bullies

...Annotated Bibliography for School Bullies Tiffany Fuller DeVry University Annotated Bibliography for School Bullies Bullying is in various forms and is an emerging problem that many children and teenagers have to face daily at school, away from their parents view and protection. Children attend school to learn valuable skills and lessons. School is suppose to be beneficial and a positive experience for a child, but there are experiences, like bullying that may have a negative impact on the child and stay with that child for the rest of their life. This has become an increasing problem for parents, school administrators and teachers, and it affects our society. Bullying is physically and psychologically harmful to the bully and the victim and should be removed from the schools by increasing supervision and raising awareness. Bindley, K. (20012, August 08). Bullying and Suicide. The dangerous mistake we make. Huffington Post. Retrieved from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/08/bullying-suicide-teens-depression_n_1247875.html In this newspaper article Bindley used two stories, one was a on a college student, Tyler Clementi, who killed himself because his roommate filmed him kissing another male student. The other story was a female high school student, Phoebe Prince, who committed suicide after being bullied by classmates. Bullying comes in different forms; Bindley says not all are as straight forward as others. The roommate recording him and maybe......

Letter to the Editor on Children of Divorce

...Letter to the Editor on Children of Divorce In the article of “Is Divorce Bad for Children?” by Hal Arkowitz and Scott O. Lillenfeldm, talks about how children are affected, when their parents are going to split up. I had felt so many things, when my parents split up, luckily I was old enough to understand, but yet I felt all kinds of pain and emotion’s going through my head. I know how it feels, when I see children go through so much mixed emotions. Growing up with my nephew’s who lived with me for 20 years went through their parents divorcing. From what I know, divorce is a bad separation, because it can cause children to have bad grades, they can be affected emotionally, and mentally. Everyday the divorce rate is growing rapidly. Which means that half of American families are likely to split up, and more than half of the kids from these families are likely to be depressed and poor academic in school. First, American families are likely to split up, and more than half of the kids from these families are likely to be depressed, and poor academic in school, has become a major issue in today’s society. Today, many people see divorce as a bad or good thing. I personally think it is bad for every child to go through this. Although couples that are divorce, benefits them because they are no longer suffering from each other and their children can stop seeing them argue. And “a separation may be in the best interest for the child in the long run, but tangible change is......

Bullies Should Be Kicked Out of Schools

...constant problem in schools today. People sometimes say that bullies are ignorant kids, but they are criminals and they steal other people’s self-esteem. First of all, bullying is a crime, and it can have serious effects on an individual. Bullies harass, make threats, terrorize, and use verbal and physical abuse on their victims. The old saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” isn’t necessarily true; words do hurt. They may not hurt physically but if a kid already has insecurities, bullies make it worse. It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. A frequently asked question by many is why do teenagers bully? In a lot of cases, teens who bully can be in bad home environments. They can be verbally or physically abused at home, and anger and sadness gradually builds inside of them. They find a way to take it out on people, and they usually take it out on people who they know won't stand up to them. That’s why you see a lot of bullies pick on the quiet people who appear to have low self-esteem. Bullies build up on the insecurities of children and insult their different qualities. Though it doesn’t happen often, bullying can end in a tragic death. A British study reported 44% of suicides occurring in kids 10 to 14 was caused by bullying. Those bullied often remain silent until the emotional trauma is eventually no longer tolerable. Our schools should not allow......

Naap Letter to the Editor

...Sir Editor Washington Post Dear Sir: In response to the published press release, NAACP Report Reveals Disparate Impact of Coal-Fired Power Plants, I would like to offer some food for thought. There is no doubt that burning coal can be harmful to the environment and the health of humans that are exposed to it, but the manner in which the NAACP manipulates the issue to paint a picture of power companies taking advantage of the poor and minorities to create a racial and social status issue is unethical. No one disputes the fact that something needs to be done to minimize toxic emissions from power plants. According to Patterson, old, dirty coal plants are poisoning our environment (189). We are in an age of advanced technology where brilliant minds come up with amazing things. We have the ability; we only lack commitment from our government to make it happen. As Jealous believes, coal pollution is literally killing low-income communities and communities of color (189). Although the statement may be true, he is missing the root cause. Power plants did not build low-income housing around their facilities. Real estate developers seized an opportunity. They are the ones who should be held accountable for unscrupulous motives. Regardless, that fact does not help our current situation. Our government must work with power plants to convert to clean energy to make us a better country as a WHOLE. I believe the NAACP could gain a lot of credibility if they acted on behalf of......

...Letter to Editor Dear Editor: On August 8 in 2007 Barry Bonds broke the Major League Baseball (MLB) home run records by 31years. However, most major newspapers and magazines columns were indifferent and negative to his home run record. The expressions from them are very different from wild enthusiasms and cheers when he broke Mark McGwire’s single season home run record because Bonds is under suspicion for steroid use. Beside in these cases, major leaguers’ performance enhancing drugs stories rise out many different way such as Jose Canseco autobiography, Mark McGwire admits he uses the steroids and goes on to hit a then record 70 homers. According to the MLB official site, the investigation of MLB organization found that 5 percent to 7 percent of 1438 tests were positive about performance enhancing drugs during the 2003 season. The Major League player were used performance enhancing drug and even existence of the drug policy keep under suspicion about it nowadays . So, I think MLB need to improve current performance enhancing drugs policy. According to the MLB official site, Major League Baseball’s drug policy joint drug prevention and treatment program is established by agreement after the 2004 season between the MLB Players Association and the Office of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball in order to ban baseball players’ performance enhancing drugs including anabolic steroids and other illegal drugs. There was one unannounced mandatory test......
