As the change from tobacco to sugar cane production began to take place, so did the change in slave labour. It is said that the Amerindians were unfit for harsh labour and were in turn decimated. The Europeans then had to rely on the convicts, bondservants and prisoners of war to exploit resources and spread agricultural systems. This proved to be futile as the men that were taken were from cities and towns back in Europe.
Originally, slavery had taken place among the different tribes in Africa, but in 1518, a shipload of slaves was brought from the African Coast to the Caribbean. After Portugal had succeeded in establishing sugar plantations in northern Brazil in 1545, Portuguese

key factors. Item A suggests that Chinese and Indian pupils are of higher educational achievement than Bangladeshi, Pakistani, and Black pupils. One possible cause of ethnic differences in education could be at the fault of the education system. To investigate this Sewell carried out a study using semi-structured interviews and observations in an inner-city boys’ comprehensive school. His study revealed the ways in which African-Caribbean students are labelled by their teachers, peers and white students as ‘problems’ in the classroom. Sewell showed how Black boys use these negative perceptions to construct different responses to school based on their own ‘masculine’ images. Many of these

After that, the English very politely asked Old Stormalong to go around the long way, and that is what he did. The deck of the Courser was so long that the sailors had to ride horses at a full gallop from stem to stern when it was their turn to keep watch. Old Stormalong was the only man strong enough to handle the wheel of the Courser, and it took all of his muscle to prevent the ship from knocking down the smaller Caribbean islands whenever a hurricane blew into the ship.”

Gabriel García Márquez was born in 1928 in the small town of Aracataca, situated in a tropical region of northern Colombia, between the mountains and the Caribbean Sea. He grew up with his maternal grandparent - his grandfather was a pensioned colonel from the civil war at the beginning of the century. He went to a Jesuit college and began to read law, but his studies were soon broken off for his work as a journalist. In 1954 he was sent to Rome* on an assignment for his newspaper, and since then he has mostly lived abroad - in Paris, New York, Barcelona and Mexico - in a more or less compulsory exile.

Sickle cell anemia is most prevalent in families in Africa, South America, Central America (Panama), the Caribbean and Mediterranean, India, and Saudi Arabia.

African-Americans have a higher rate of sickle cell anemia than other races in the U.S (one in five hundred births). It affects one in thirty-six thousand Hispanic American births.

how the disorder would develop and how people would respond to treatment.
Research has found low predictive validity for schizophrenia. For example only about 20% recover their previous level of functioning but 40% never really recover. This much variation in the prognosis suggests that the original diagnosis is lacked predictive validity, thus the diagnosis was not helpful in dealing with the course of schizophrenia.
Research has shown other factors like ethnicity, poor housing may be more influential whether an individual has schizophrenia or not. For instance it seems more to do with ethnicity as rates of schizophrenia are high among Afro Caribbean population when compared to whites in the UK. This may be due to them being misdiagnosed as schizophrenia as they not able to explain their disorder. However vast majority of research is carried out on white middle class Americans who can afford to see a therapist.

These trends could be linked to immigration laws that encouraged these groups to come to the UK in the 1960’s. One other way in which families have become more diverse is that there has been a great increase in single parent families. There are a range of social policies that could be linked to this trend. For example, in the UK over time divorce laws have changed and divorce has become easier and cheaper over time. What this means is that that more marriages may break up leaving a single parent families this could also be linked to the increase in reconstituted families that have been seen in

Puerto Ricans are a Caribbean people who regard themselves as citizens of a distinctive island nation in spite of their colonial condition and U.S. citizenship.

Hence the historical beginnings of nursing has shaped the humanistic, altruistic, comforting and supporting roles that nurses have undertaken in today’s society.

All managers of the factories stated that they will recommend any entrepreneurs that are willing to start a business in Williamsfield and as the researcher I am also encouraged in having dreams in doing business in Williamsfield. The main challenge faced by the factories was the lack of raw materials. It was very difficult for the factory to operate with small amount of raw materials because this will led to a decrease in income for the factories. Hence, the conclusion that can be draft is that the factor does influence the location of factories.

To the Caribbean sugar farmer this would certainly not suffice. A heart truly needs a brain.

Yvonne Bignall, vice president of academic affairs at University College of the Caribbean (IMS/IMP), said courses in ethics provide students with a grounded understanding of the issues they will encounter in the corporate world. Elements of ethics are integrated into the school's business studies curriculum. Students then see ethics as an
