index not a female based index.In essence the Gender development index is a measure for the achievement of both women and men in three important dimensions: life expectancy, educational attainment and adjusted real income (after taking note of inequality between women and men). In essence the GDI is the HDI (Human development index) however taking into consideration gender inequalities. On another end the Gender empowerment index is one that focuses on three variables that reflect women's participation in political decision-making, access to professional opportunities and earning power.

isolated than the rest of Canada with a lower quality of healthcare. Secondly, the housing crisis in Canada is a problem that continues to worsen. The housing market in Canada exhibits high demand, but low supply causing prices/rent fees of estates to be very expensive which many people cannot afford. An example of this housing crisis taking its toll is seen in suicidal seniors who are forced onto the streets of British Columbia because they can no longer afford to pay rent (ctvnews.ca/canada). My last reason I as to why I disagree that Canada is a country to be proud of is the healthcare system.

explore alternative measures such as the Capability Approach, Human Development Index and the Social Development Index, which regardless of their own limitations, offer a more holistic view of human welfare.
Geographer Garrett Nagle views development as not merely an increase in per capita income but also as an accompanying modernisation of the economy (Nagel, 2015).
For a long time, states have considered economic progress as a means to achieve social progress for their citizens. This perspective is based staunchly in neoclassical economic theory, where the levels of consumption in an economy at the individual or household level are considered derivative of utility.

It is only an average and extremes like billionaires can overwhelm the poorest people in the country. It is generally known that half the world lives on 2 US dollars everyday. Perhaps there might be a rich country in GNP merely by the fact that some people are extremely rich and can easily increase the GNP even though the poverty stricken people outnumber the rich.The human development index contains three indexes that partly measure the countries development.

OECD's approach on human's well-being evaluation comprises three elements including economic well-being, quality of life and socioeconomic and natural systems sustainability of where people live (OECD 2012). Thus, GDP can only measure the material side of human welfare. Furthermore, GDP receives criticism of its ability to accurately measure economic well-being. GDP says nothing about the income distribution and fails to reflect the inequality of society.

What Is Human Development?
Human development refers to the process of enriching the lives of people, as opposed to the economy in which these people live. (United Nations, 1990) Human development is measured using the Human Development Index (HDI). The HDI is based on three elements, namely the health, education, and income of people. The HDI is used to determine whether or not a country is developing or developed, based on these 3 aspects. (STUDY GUIDE – REFERENCIING????)
In order to fully illustrate the HDI, this essay will look at the HDI ranking for South Africa in 2011 and again in 2015, and thus compare the scores, and discuss the changes based on the elements that the HDI is measured

because, like Plato, Freud distinguished three structural elements within the mind, which he
called id, ego, and superego. The id is the part of the mind in which the instinctual sexual drives
which require satisfaction are situated; the superego contains the "conscience," namely,
socially-acquired control mechanisms which have been internalized and which are usually
imparted in the first instance by the parents; the ego is the conscious self that is created by the
dynamic tensions and interactions between the id and the superego, and has the task of

According to one study, at the current phase of markets’ development, it is theoretically possible for algorithmic trading (and especially high- frequency strategies) to exceed the returns of index strategy. However, in terms of market volatility, it was not found any evidence for a detrimental impact of either algorithmic trading or high frequency trading. That shouldn’t be a surprise. Technological advance makes super profits, capitalists are greedy, so technological advance spreads quickly, super profits disappear and the consumer benefits.

conception and that abortion is akin to murder since the fetus is a
person with the same legal and moral rights as a “living” person. Opponents
of abortion believe their position is in accordance with their deeply held
regard for the “sanctity of life” (Goggin, 1993). Illustrative of this position is
that at the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development
in Cairo, Egypt, delegates from the Vatican demanded that all references to
unsafe abortions be deleted because all abortions are unsafe for the fetus.
Pro-choice supporters maintain that pro-life supporters have a selective

The US is among the countries that widely use sanctions in efforts to compel a certain government(s) to change their policy appropriately. Usually, the embargos involve the restrictions on trade, investment and other commercial activities. The US mainly applies sanctions to countries which violate human rights, sponsor terror acts, trade unfairly or develop weapons of mass destruction.

This is a strategic advantage for companies to provide and take part of their employees' personal growth and development.

In recent years, researchers have become interested in the emergence of tourism in
developing countries. It is evident that tourism is growing rapidly and is heavily relied on as
an important source of income and employment. In its essence, the term poor country or
developing country are normally shown as a country which has a less developed industrial
base and a low human development index. For example, there is an increase in international
tourist arrivals such as in 2011, there were about 983 million international tourist arrivals.
Another example will be its accessibility for the poor. Tourism is a very labour-intensive

with the development of agriculture. But within the last 100,000 years, the hunting and burning practices of Palaeolithic people, along with climate change, drove many large mammals and birds to extinction. North- and South America and Australia lost up to 86% of large mammals soon after humans arrived – species such as giant wombats, killer ducks, ground sloths, mammoths, sabre-tooth cats and moas.
The most common reason for extinction is habitat loss. Ecosystems from wetlands to prairies and cloud forests to coral reefs are being cleared or degraded for crops, cattle, roads and development. Even fragmenting habitats with roads or dams can make species more vulnerable. Fragmentation reduces

In the mid-20th century, the United States government placed a series of trade and travel restrictions against Cuba, collectively called the Cuban Embargo. The purpose of the Cuban Embargo was to fight the spread of communism in the Western Hemisphere, and to inspire Cuba's leaders to become more democratic and respectful of human rights. The Cuban Embargo has been controversial since its inception, but actions by the Obama administration that weakened the ban brought the

One possible pathway in which conscientiousness associates with longevity is through diseases. Researches show that low conscientiousness is related with many of the causes of mortality such as diabetes, high blood pressure, skin problems, strokes, ulcers, asthma/bronchitis and other lung problems (Goodwin & Friedman, 2006).

The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey
