Aspect of Cross-Cultural Learning - 5.0 out of 5 based on 1 vote

 

Aspect of Cross-cultural learningWashington and Okoro (2012) gives an explanation of culture to be the way people lead their lives which includes their beliefs, their values, their religion, their attitudes and among many other things which they value. Wetherington defines learning to be an occurrence which causes a difference in person behaviour, informed by new skills, habits, understanding, or attitudes. Hildard Bower (1975) adds that, learning is a process which leads to a changed behaviour in a person because of repetitive experiences that they get in a given situation. The author emphasises that, the change in behaviour has no description. Therefore, cross culture can be explained to be an environment where people from different parts of the world, with different beliefs, values, opinions and practices get to interact. It is difficult for an individual to fit in a culture different from theirs, in a different country when they have been used to theirs hence the concept of learning different cultures. Thus, cross-cultural learning is a ongoing event of learning how to fit in a different culture from home culture (Farhangmehr & Soares, 2007).

Women In leadershipWoman's leadership is not welcome, and has been seen as something impossible for quite a long period, all over the world, but more often than not in America. The women have not been given the chance to lead, and they are told not able to deliver well as leaders (Wood, 2009).There are other cultures which bar them; they are thought to be sex objects, meaning, they are there to be seen and not heard; this is a barriers for them progressing into leadership. The culture that women cannot make good leaders was there many years ago, and it is affecting the current society as well. Some organizations policies do not favor the leadership of women or do not provide room for their leadership at all (Paludi & Breena, 2011). Nowadays women have become a significant economic group. Glass ceiling, as it shows on words, describes the invisible barrier which is based on a gender stereotype, prevents women from rising to upper executive roles and corporate boards of directors. The background above provide the basis for the thesis, “How to realize the gender equality between the men and women in positions of power.”

Sexual Education in Young ChildrenThe type of sex education program that should be taught to our students is and will continue to be a major topic of debate among parents, teachers and teenagers, which is driven by the elevation of teenage pregnancy and birth rates in the U.S. compared to other industrialized nations.  Parents, teachers, school principals and teenagers can’t decide whether abstinence-only versus comprehensive sex education should be taught in schools.  Some people argue that the comprehensive sex education program sends a mixed message to our students and it’s actually promoting sexual activity because this type of program covers how to have safe sex and to use a condom properly.

Introduction

Presidents’ Men

The entire Presidents’ Men became the most extensively read book on the Watergate scandal immediately after its publication in 1974. Few years later, an Oscar winning movie on the issue was released. The story of the two Washington Post reporters bucking the system to make a corrupt president resign was permanently entrenched in the national pop consciousness. Notwithstanding this, many critics of the book, including the competitors of the two attacks on the book, overly focused on the author’s contribution to ending Nixon’s presidency. The report aims at judging whether APM deserves its the place in the pantheon of prominent political journalistic history.

Joseph “King Oliver” was born on May 11, 1185 in the area of New Orleans, Louisiana, United States (Williams, 67). He was a very prominent jazz musician whose work most notably influenced the renowned Louise Armstrong who came to give him the nickname “Papa Joe”.  When Louis was still very young, Oliver gave him a chance to work with him when his band was recording and playing inChicago. Joe was really an icon in the jazz music world, and was known for his improvisation rather than for sticking to the norm. This unique style led to the tag hot jazz which is usually used to refer to any jazz music that takes this direction. Perhaps, his creative skills were enhanced rather than hampered by the fact that he was partially blind.
