Mubarak was the president of Egypt when the events introduced in the chapter took place. Zawahiri who has been also referred to as the ‘brains of Al Qaeda’ had a plan to kill Mubarak together with the Egyptian radicals during his visit to Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), to the Organization of the African Unity meeting. The attempt of assassins was prevented, though two bodyguards of Mubarak were still killed, and a lot of people suspected in terror activities were jailed after this event.

So, the agents of Egyptian intelligence used the information they had concerning the members of al-Jihad and Al Qaeda to trace them and prevent other casualties planned by this terrorist organization under the aegis of Mubarak’s anti-terror law. In this respect, two boys who were the sons of al-Jihad core members were accused of the espionage activities by Egyptian intelligence, and were blackmailed that their photographs of a homosexual content might be passed to their fathers.

It does not present a particular challenge to outline the main idea, promoted in Gerald Graff’s article. According to Graff, it is methodologically inappropriate to refer to what he defines as ‘street-smart’ activities (sports, games, fights, dating) and intellectual activities as conceptually incompatible, because just as it is the case with the sports, the metaphysical basis for academic pursuits is best defined as competition, “Real intellec¬tual world, the one that existed in the big world beyond school, was organized very much like the competitive world of sports, with rival texts, rival interpre¬tations and evaluations of them, rival theories of why they should be read and taught…” (28).

Yet, as it is pointed out by Graff, the methodological matrix of today’s liberal education is more concerned with memorization of contextually irrelevant data, as opposed to being concerned with establishing objective preconditions for students’ analytical abilities to be continuously stimulated. In its turn, this explains the phenomenon of ‘nerdism’ - a situation when students’ possession of factual knowledge does not necessarily reflect their ability to understand the practical implications of such knowledge.

The Paradoxical Effects of Time Travel

Format: *.DOC (Microsoft® Office® 97-2003)

Subject: Social sciences

Word count: 1237

Citation Style: APA

The issue of travelling in time is not new because it has interested people for centuries and continues interesting us today. However, in spite of people's high concern and eagerness to uncover time's mysteries, it still keeps its secrets as it did centuries ago. Even in our time, when a huge progress in science and technology has been achieved, it seems that we have managed only to touch the surface of this issue and something "floating just above the surface" (Hawking, 2002, p. 17).

View more

Time travel can be referred to as a voyage across time in a way that is parallel to movement across space, like sending something back in time or peeking into the future, without the experience of the intervening duration. In such a case, a time machine can be considered as a mechanism used to travel in time, regardless of hypothetical or fictitious issues.

Is gender "Natural" or acquired?

Format: *.DOC (Microsoft® Office® 97-2003)

Subject: Social sciences

Word count: 2815

Citation Style: MLA

Introduction

Gender may be categorized as both natural and acquired since one has the ability to transform from one gender to another. There is a myriad of theories that have been put forward to explain the two extremes of the argument (natural and acquired gender) in an attempt to support the divergent views. For instance, sociologists on humans and scholars from other fields of study have come up with explanations to support their varied perspectives on this debatable issue.

View more

Some believe that human body can be used to explain natural gender differences while others use social ideologies such as social constructionist theory to support the idea that gender can indeed be acquired. However, it is imperative to note that both male and female genders are naturally different, be it physically, emotionally or socially. This supports the argument that both genders are naturally different though there are some individuals who have shown contradicting characters. These are males and females who are born with characteristics that are meant for opposite gender. For example, some females have male body parts which may rule out the fact that body differences can be accurately used to differentiate male and female gender. Some people have even demonstrated characteristics of the opposite sex both physically and emotionally. This has made it difficult to classify such people as either males or females.

Media Exposure and its Influence on Adolescents

Format: *.DOC (Microsoft® Office® 97-2003)

Subject: Social sciences

Word count: 631

Citation Style: APA

One of the most critical and vulnerable stages of human development is adolescence. This period is true for any boy or girl and, factually, is the most susceptible to changes, broadly affecting the psychological level of the human being (Craig & Baucum, 2001). In the modern culture, both audio and visual media exercise a great amount of influence on the mind of the adolescent. Earlier, video games alone were considered a potential threat for the rapidly altering mind of an adolescent. At present, however, media encompassing both print and television play a significantly negative role in deteriorating adolescents’ minds.

View more

Formerly, young developing minds changing rapidly were victimized by violent games on the gadgets. Now, this role is shared by films, advertisements and miscellaneous television programmes showing extreme cruelty and dangerous life-threatening activities of various types, exposing female body as a commodity, as well as making emphasis on sexual content. All these features and many others are continuously broadcasted on hoarding, television, and radio commercials, and are heavily misguiding the minds of adolescents to potentially disturbing realities.

Critical Analysis of a Development Project (Avahan: India AIDS initiative)

Subject: Social sciences

Word count: 1661

Citation Style: APA

Introduction

The subject of this study is Avahan: India AIDS Initiative which is directly related to the 6th of the 8 millennium development goals: combating diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria, and others; improving the development in the third world countries; striving for international partnership, and some others (Haines & Cassels, 2004). The project has been created to reach out to a large group of people who are at risk of contracting HIV/AIDS and to prevent the spreading of the new HIV infections.

The at-risk groups are homosexuals, commercial sex workers and their clients, intravenous drug users, long distance truckers, and others living at the edge of poverty (Wagstaff, 2004). Avahan is targeted to protect and inform 5 280 000 people in all the six states of India (Attaran, 2005), as well as to develop and introduce the infection prevention strategies. According to Rechel et al. (2004), this very project was chosen for research as the hopes for progress and achievements in this field are thought to be almost non-existent.

Gender as a Culturally-Prescribed Role as Opposed to a Biological Sex

Format: *.DOC (Microsoft® Office® 97-2003)

Subject: Social sciences

Word count: 7003

Citation Style: APA

Abstract

The concept of gender has often raised various questions as to whether it is predominantly influenced by our biological sexes or whether it is a product of our cultures. The debate has sparked volumes of research with those who propose that gender is a product of our culture pegging, their arguments are based on such facts as culture-based gender definition or gender roles.

View more

On the other hand, those of the opposite idea support their argument by asserting that when culture is used to determine the concept of gender, emphasis should be given to the similarities of the universal cultures as opposed to the differences. This paper examines this debate with an inclination that culture has a predominant role in determining our gender. It also examines the counter-arguments that have been advanced in this topic.

Feminist Theory

Format: *.DOC (Microsoft® Office® 97-2003)

Subject: Social sciences

Word count: 3321

Citation Style: MLA

"The history of feministic thought has witnessed its evolution through various trends and tendencies. Most of those were naturally predetermined by the contemporary social conditions that at one time or another served as a seminal ground for emergence of certain feministic ideas. One of the specific occurrences in the history of feminism is the radical feminism, the onset of which was prepared by the social and political events of the 1960s. Springing from the left-wing tendencies in the post-war America, radical feminism positioned itself as a movement for exclusion from the general mainstream and termination of the governing patriarchal principles.

View more

Although traditionally the notion of radical feminism is considered within the time scope of late 1960s - early 1970s that coincided with the so-called ‘second-wave feminism’, the roots of radical trends in feminism can be traced back to as early as the second half of the nineteenth century. Radical feminism of that time is associated by researchers, inter alia, with the activities of the French campaigner Hubertine Auclert who, together with promoting the general feminist ideas of the necessity to introduce changes into laws, also insisted on introducing women to public office since only then fair legislation would be possible (Evans 131). Impatient and persistent, Auclert went much further than the moderate feminists of the time and suggested enlarging the social borders of feminism to all social strata including the proletariat. Moreover, the tactics she used for bringing forward her ideas were also characterized by forcefulness and push. While in calmer German society a simple public protest meeting was already considered revolutionary, in a more open-minded France it was possible for Auclert to conduct street demonstration and even alternative general elections among women. Additionally, she launched a taxation protest “I do not vote, I do not pay” and ran a La Citoyenne magazine for a decade, where sensational methods were used to attract public attention to the feministic demands of political rights for women (Evans 131-132).
