contact to education. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees labelled the crisis as the “biggest humanitarian and refugee crisis of our time.” Host nations’ substructures are fastening under the tension, obliging refugees to depend on smugglers, unfaithful migrant routes, and impossible border crossings in a constant search for shield (Buchan, 2016).
Refugees need safety and hosting until a strong solution is possible, which for those who decide to come back must be under safe, unpaid and honourable conditions. It must be created the political will and global deployment that are required to support displaced people and host similar communities and must also better resource the work

L’Écriture Migrant Comparative Essay Neshann Lacuesta
The pursuit of identity and belonging is experienced inevitably by people who are affected
by migration and colonisation. The novels L’Amant (1984) by Marguerite Duras and
L’Africain (2004) by J.M.G. Le Clézio explore characters who tackle this quest of identity,
particularly the two protagonists, who both feel oppressed by the place which the society
implies they belong to. Both texts are highly autobiographical, describing the construction
of an identity in the lives of their respective authors.
This essay will compare and contrast the texts in regard to the themes of belonging and
identity affected by relocation and displacement and

country. This, in turn, could affect the range of capabilities the USRAP can render to foreigners. One of the ways his administration attempts to achieve this goal is by lowering the refugee admission ceiling for the 2018 Fiscal Year (FY) by 45,000 (Davis and Jordan, 2017), dipping into a new historical low since Reagan’s presidency. Individuals like Katy Long, the author of the 2015 article “Why America Could—and Should—Admit More Syrian Refugees” provides an extensive coverage of the issue, hoping it would persuade her readers and perhaps political leaders that an isolationist view is not the sensible path the US should embark on regarding the current migrant crisis.

The construction workers in Qatar are tasked with building a $260 billion infrastructure package that includes stadiums, hotels, apartments, public transportation systems and roads. Activists have estimated that one worker a day is dying on construction sites linked to the World Cup. It is predicted that 4,000 workers will die before the first ball is kicked in 2022. This number does not include the injured, or migrant workers who have lost their rights. Hundreds of thousands of workers are paid as little as

crisis in 1997 exacerbated the situation within China and forced the government to take actions to improve the efficiency of SOEs. Zheng argues that a “central spirit of modernisation and restructuring policy of the SOES involved: grasping the large and letting go of the small”. This led to larger SOEs such as in the oil and electricity industry to be maintained under state controls, whereas smaller SOEs were either privatised, merged or left to go bankrupt (Hsieh and Song, 2015). This led to a total of 27 million people between 1997-2002 being laid off, with women representing 60% of this figure. The fact that women today in China earn about 66% of what men do, compared to 80% pre 1990s

Some international student-athletes may feel their skin colors are the factors that isolate them from other domestic teammates or classmates (Person et al., 2001). Some international student-athletes who have unique stressors that make them be more vulnerable to mental diseases or emotional crisis might require counseling services (Etzel, Ferrante, & Pinkney, 1996). Under these circumstances, international student- athletes need helps provided by professional staff from academics, athletics, and student affairs, and understanding the difficulties and challenges that international student- athletes

Upon arrival of their migrant country, immigrants present fewer health risks, lower levels of disability as well as fewer chronic conditions compared to the native-born individuals known as healthy immigrant effect (Tarraf & Giroux, 2016). However, their health status deteriorates with the number of years spent in their native country and converges that on the native-born populations (Tarraf& Giroux, 2016). Several mechanisms contribute to this decline in health status includes diet and

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. 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

Walter Freeman and the Invention of the Lobotomy
In Steely Library’s digital archives, one of the postcards from the Gilliam family collection is entitled Western Kentucky Asylum for the Insane, Hopkinsville, KY. The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

When I was a child, my late father and I would spend every moment of the summer season on
the sparkling white sand of the beach near our home. We would dance, kicking up the shiny
surface so that the droplets glimmered like diamonds in the sunlight. We would lie on our backs
and stare at the sky, until the swirling clouds began to take on our imaginative shapes mingled
together by our fantastical minds. We would grip imaginary weapons and fight, thrusting swords
like the most violent of fantasy pirates. These unforgettable days went on and on, a never ending
cycle of blue skies, imprinted forever in my mind. My earliest memories are filled with images

How much of a threat does the robotics revolution represent for human employment in New Zealand in the next 30 years?
In order to understand the threats that robotics may pose to human employment in the future, it is important to examine the ways in which robots and computerization are already influencing different employment industries today, and how they have changed our labor practices in the past. If this information is then compared with current trends and statistics in New Zealand’s employment market conclusions can be drawn about how robotics might influence New Zealand employment in the next thirty years.

Comparison Between the Portrayal of Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby in Chapters 1 to 6
Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

A home automation system typically connects controlled devices to a central hub or "gateway". The user interface for control of the system uses either wall-mounted terminals, tablet or desktop computers, a mobile phone application, or a Web interface, that may also be accessible off-site through the Internet. Also it will control lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances. It may also include home security such as access control and alarm systems. When they are connected with the Internet, home devices are an important constituent of the Internet of Things.
