“Public protection”

   The use of surveillance cameras have become commonly used and it has affected our lifestyles. They can been seen very often in shops,schools,banks,hotels and even in private houses.

   Nevertheless,the use of cameras in today’s society has lead to a lot of people’s concerns. Most people do not feel comfortamble with cameras around them just because every move they do is monitored. Another reason is their privacy which is violated. For instance employees may feel like they are not trusted or reliable which is not good for a workplace.

   On the opposite side,people believe that surveillance cameras are nessecary and important for their safety. Without a doubt they protect the public by criminal activity. By doing this robberies are reduced and create a safe environment too. Clearly people feel safer knowing they are protected.

   As a final point, I would agree that surveillance cameras offer a sense of protection and is well worth some sacrifice of privacy in public places.

“Charity work”

   Plenty of people are going through difficult situations such as poverty,homelessness and unemployement.

   Fortunately, there are charity organisations and volunteers who are trying to find ways so they can assist people who are living with these difficulties. Many people help by joining charitable organisations or raise money and volunteers are doing their best in order to meet the growing need more volunteers and raise more money to help other communities who need their help.

   To put it another way, people who want to offer their help do not have much time whether this is due to obligations and other factors. Nowadays people are searching for volunteering opputunities that they can help online by writing emails or making websites for charitable organisations and newsletters too. It may seem impossible to provide assistance this way but if we think that these small actions can have good effect to a person we will understand that is not impossible. In other words, technology has envolved so if we can take advantage of it we will see that is more easy than we thought by searching for online organisations.

   It is clear that government is not the only one who can assist these people. We can all help them by small actions because any help can make a difference.

Public protection

Nowadays the technology is developing rapidly, so fast that accomplish to create cameras. This invention is an aspect of surveillance that allows to people to prevent an accident or a crime activity.

Both of texts are in favour that cameras are at every public places to protect the public from suspicious situations for instead vandalism or theft.The first text maintains that the surveillance cameras have the benefit to record every people’s movement or suspicious situations and this material is saved. Moreover if someone do something strange or illegal the cameras will record it and he would captured on the film. Also cameras make the public feel safe and realise that the surveillance cameras keeping being active. The second text express that cameras is not in every places to invade in our personal life but to prevent a criminal activity or an accident. Furthermore there are security analytics that can raise alarms before a crime or accident even start.

These opinions are right and significant because with the camera’s valid evidences the criminals are discouraged and there is a less range of vandalism or theft.The first text is clearly saying that cameras are protecting the public from doubted behaviours and as a result a big number of the factors of these activities have stopped. Including the second text maintains that the primary of the law is the surveillance and safety of the public and this is a good start of the struggle against criminal activity.

Without a doubt the surveillance cameras making the world more safe and the public feels more comfortable but also making the public to afraid these devices. In conclusion the people are safer right now with cameras and all these security networks but the technology have to developing more and more its devises for the public to be one hundred percent safe and not afraid to walk on the streets.

Global charity work and Virtual volunteering

Many people are living in difficult situations globally. More and more communities around the world have a range of problems such as poverty, unemployment and other issues that are a hardship for those people. Both of texts supporting this idea with a variety of reasons that make us to help those communities.

So the first text speaking about the help that many people need. Also implicate some ways for us to help by joining charitable organisations or raise money but the authorities are reluctant to support and because of that speaking about the volunteers that doing their upmost to help the others.On the hand the second text says that some people who wants to help but don’t have any time can help through internet platforms or writing newsletters. However the skills that a lot of people have on internet will play an significant role in order to write newsletters and donate money.

Both of texts are right about the results and the consequences that can bear some help from all of us to the communities that living in hard conditions. For instance if people raise money or write encouraging posts or articles for the helpless, poor or people that accept racism will all contribute and change our culture in the future. This idea assisting the second text but a familiar believe assisting and the first text. It says that the volunteer’s work is worthwhile and not giving up despite the difficulties.

In my point of view all the ideas are right and paramount. I would like rather if people would starting thinking reasonable and give a boost for this struggle and contribute to make our cultures or mindset better.

 

Is a university degree really worth it?

Is a university degree important?

 

Every person after or even before he finishes school always comes to an important question, “is it worth it getting a university degree?” Or “Will a university degree help me get a better job?”.

Well first of all, university is always something people are aiming for their future and even they know that in order to sign up for it, you need to pay a lot for it, but the question of “Is it really worth it?” Is something that always gets in people’s minds before they take their decision. According to famous and clever people such as Mark Zuckleberg, Steve Jobs or even Elon Musk, a university degree, is not something that will guarantee you a better job or bigger future. Neither had they had to get a university nor college degree, in order to become what they are. Without one, they really did make their own successful careers. So with that being said, career wise it doesn’t help you to make a shining career.

Although, by signing in a university degree, you can learn different things in more detailed ways which defiantly helps you get educated, even though that’s the case, studying further by yourself and spending time on researching for more information online, is both free and very helpful. Also, if you want to have a part-time job and study at the same time for university, will be incredibly tiring and you can still not end up getting that degree. And not only that, but also don’t forget the how much you are paying, how much you may earn from your part time job and what did you understand from this whole experience, well dissapointly the answer is nothing. Under no circumstances you get that degree and you have spent a tons of money over something that you didn’t manage to succeed at. Even if you do end up getting the degree, the next step should mostly be getting a job and that’s where you notice that you have spent years on something insanely expensive and all of that for something that will be useless on continuing with your life.

In my opinion, a university degree for my future won’t be that important since it is extremely expensive and my plans are on getting a job that is good enough to keep myself in good conditions, from the other side, for people who really want to take another step in education and learn something even better, then a university degree should make it up for you in education, but career wise will pretty much be just a certificate that won’t help you in getting something more important than a university degree, which is a job to keep up with your life.

If you are one of those people who really want to push forward and try learning something specific in a more detailed and complicating way, then a university degree, should be what you are looking for.

In my opinion, a university degree for my future won’t be that important since it is extremely expensive and my plans are on getting a job that is good enough to keep myself in good conditions, from the other side, for people who really want to take another step in education and learn something even better, then a university degree should make it up just fine for you.

a letter to my future self

Dear future self,

First of all I hope Covid-19 doesn’t exist anymore. Also I hope you found the job of your dreams and our parents are still good,but I’m too worried for my grandparents…I really hope they are still alive.

Now I want to give you some advice! If you’re working don’t let your boss make you his/her’s bondman. Secondly I want to you to take care of our parents, because they are my most important thought. Also I hope you DON’T have a boyfriend or a husband,because I know you’re not for this stuff,and you have 10 cats!

That’s all for me I hope you’re healthy and strong!

“Poverty”

Even today poverty is still a problem. A huge number of our population do not have the basics to live whether that is a food or home.

Have you ever thought how homeless people live? A lot of people will answer no because they only care about themselves and their family. Homeless people feel isolated from society because of this thought which ivolves a lot of opression for them.

The end of poverty associated with people in better financial situation to give money or food to improverished people instead of buying an expensive shirt. This act is an oppurtunity for people who are safe to help others whoselives are threatened.

In which initiative would I participate ?

Nowadays, a lot of people believe in servicing our community by engaging its members to give back through a variety of initiatives. They are five initiatives. Firstly, we have the proacting youth mentoring programme, the pro bono work, the community outreach programme, the crowdfunding projects and lastly the corporate community engagements.

If you ask me in which initiative I would participate, I maybe would join the community outreach programme in which over 10,000 volunteering hours in activities such as concerts for the elderly and neighborhood walks giving out information about drug abuse.

I would probably do that because a lot of older people feel loneliness, a feeling no one should ever feel, and in order to make them forget this fact and have their time of their life I would choose this programme. Also when you volunteer for this initiative you have the opportunity to learn and teach information about drug abuse and how you can fight it. Lastly, I would participate in this initiative because I help people who cannot help themselves and win this battle of drug abuse.

To sum up, volunteering is something in which you can learn a lot of things, help others, make friendships and meet new characteristics of your personality. After all, who are we without volunteering?

Crowdfunding Projects

Crowdfunding project is the practice of raising money for a new playground and other things that its community members build for the public by getting a large number of people to finance it via Internet platforms.

In this fact this project have one hundred percent reaching its fund raising targets online.Also the project have multiple donations. People have already raised money to build a new playground for the adults and children that want to play or walk in a different place. However with this initiatives the crowdfunding project giving privileges to people to make the free space of their neighborhood useful.

So in my personal opinion this project is pervasive because all this initiatives are supporting a lot of poor families and some children finding places to play with their friends. I will join the crowdfunding project to support this people to raise money for the good of the public.

Nowadays problem

How many problems do you think that exist in our world? They are infinitive problems our world has to deal with these days.  Our world has to deal with climate crisis and clean energy, education for development, environmental and corporate sustainability, global public health, human rights and access to justice, marine conservation, social economic development and wildlife conservation. But the most important problem out Earth has to deal with is a deadly virus called Corona virus or how scientists called it, Covid-19. They are two sides. The first one believes that this virus is true but others don’t.

 

The first side is people who believe that this situation is real and it is not imaginary. These people are taking care of themselves and their loved ones in order not to get sick and maybe lose their life. They don’t violate the protection rules, they are always wearing their mask, although they can’t breathe well underneath it, they are washing very well their hands, they are using hand sanitizer and the most sovereign is that they are keeping distance from high risk people, although they don’t want to.

 

In the other hand, we have people who don’t believe that the virus is real. They believe that it is in our mind. Although they want to take care of their family, they don’t observe the rules. They are not wearing a mask, they don’t use hand sanitizer, they don’t wash well their hands and also they don’t keep distance from other people. Sometimes, they make demonstrations in order to convince people that the virus is imaginary.

 

In my point of view, I think that this deadly virus exists and sadly is taking away innocent lives. I protect myself and my loved ones. I always follow the protection rules in order not to get sick with Covid-19. I fully understand people who don’t believe that the virus is real because I think that they can’t think clearly and take more serious decision.

 

To sum up, they are two sides about this problem. The only thing that mustn’t change is that we have to follow the protection rules in order to be everyone healthy. After all, who are we without rules?

How education changed throughout the years

As a society we’re witnessing a blistering pace of development that’s rapidly changing the way that we live in all spheres of life. Whether positive or negative,   this is our changing world. For example nowadays education has changed a lot in contrast to earlier years.

Then education wasn’t so developed like it is today. For example then people believed that children have to learn and behave well by hitting them.  Also then they only learnt things from their books without examples and things to facilitate and understand easily the lesson.  Furthermore then the children only learn about Mathematics, reading and writing without all the interesting lessons we have today. Lastly, in the earlier years children used to wear uniforms and not regular clothes that we wear every day.

Nowadays the teaching method has changed. Now the purpose of today’s school is the autonomy of the child, while then one child is not an independent existence but an object who must obey the instructions of his teacher. Today, also the children learn new knowledge with the help of examples, something that then didn’t happen. In addition today the teachers aren’t so strict and care about the children and how they feel.  Finally, today we have the computers that help the children with a lot more examples understand better their lessons.

After all, to my point of view education has developed a lot. But to be more specific education changed the same as ourselves.
