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...

Sociological research has challenged the view that ethnic differences in achievement reflect innate differences of intelligence and ability; this has become a view that very few sociologists now put forward. Ethnicity refers to the shared cultural traditions and history, which are distinct from other groups in society. The level of achievement of different ethnic groups varies. This may be due to factors such as home background, class, language and in-school factors. Recent studies highlight the effects of racism. Ethnicity influences factors that lead to an impact on education.
There are many reasons for educational underachievement and it has been said that ethnicity is one of these...

Example of a Fish Tale: Old Stormalong – A Massachusetts Tall Tale retold by S.E. Schlosser
“Now everyone knows that Alfred Bulltop Stormalong was the ultimate sailor. He was the captain of a mighty ship known as the Courser, which was so wide that she couldn't sail into Boston Harbor and so tall that the mast was hinged into the middle so it could be taken down to avoid the sun and the moon whenever they passed by. Her keel was so deep that no harbor in the world could take her, so she spent all her time in deep water. The Courser only went through the English Channel once. It was a tight squeeze, so Old Stormalong had the sailors coat the entire outside of the ship with soap. Even then,...

Hyacinth was fearful of jeopardizing her immigration status which was the dominant factor constraining her assertion of her rights to report what happened.

He grew up with his maternal grandparent - his grandfather was a pensioned colonel from the civil war at the beginning of the century.

Examine the ways in which government policies and laws affect the nature and extent of family diversity. (24 marks) (Ao1-14 Ao2-10)
Some sociologists have suggested that social policy has caused families to become more diverse while others disagree. Social policies are the laws and practices put in place by the government that effect social issues, in this case the family. For example, in the 1930’s the Nazi government in Germany wanted to encourage Aryan families and put in place policies that involved sterilising certain groups to prevent them from having children. More recently in China they have a one child policy, if individuals have more than one child the government have put in...

Sickle cell anemia is a disease in which the body’s red blood cells become misshapen.
The red blood cells, which are normally round with a small indentation in the middle, become hard and crescent-shaped. They can’t fit through the small blood vessels and get stuck in the capillaries and block the blood flow. Oxygenated blood cannot get to the tissues, and this causes severe pain and in some cases, death of the tissues. Prolonged oxygen deprivation can even cause death, depending on the tissue affected, and many victims of sickle cell anemia have a shorter lifespan than people with normal blood cells.
Although sickle cell anemia as many symptoms, the most common sign of the disease...

Discuss issues of reliability and validity associated with the classification and diagnosis of schizophrenia (8+16)
One issue related to classification and diagnosis is reliability. Reliability refers to the consistency of a measuring instrument like DSM that is used when diagnosing schizophrenia. It can be measured by the extent to which psychiatrists can agree on the same diagnosis when independently assessing patients (inter rater reliability). The use of DSM III in 1990 was believed by Carson to have fixed any problems of IRR. Therefore the system is now more advanced with the DSM 5, there would be much greater agreement over who did and didn’t have schizophrenia by comparing the...

Identification. Christopher Columbus landed in Puerto Rico in 1493, during his second voyage, naming it San Juan Bautista. The Taínos, the indigenous people, called the island Boriquén Tierra del alto señor ("Land of the Noble Lord"). In 1508, the Spanish granted settlement rights to Juan Ponce de León, who established a settlement at Caparra and became the first governor. In 1519 Caparra had to be relocated to a nearby coastal islet with a healthier environment; it was renamed Puerto Rico ("Rich Port") for its harbor, among the world's best natural bays. The two names were switched over the centuries: the island became Puerto Rico and its capital San Juan. The United States anglicized the...

The nursing profession has metamorphosed from a primitive unorganised practice in ancient times, to the mostly autonomous, essential profession that is prevalent in countries worldwide. It has undergone tremendous changes in response to societal needs and due to its dynamic component, will continue to change ever so often in order to effectively produce service to society (Berman, Snyder, Kozier & Erb, 2008). The importance of nursing stemmed from the traditional female role as mother, wife, sister and daughter. As Berman et al (2008) posit, in these offices, females were naturally expected to be caregivers and nurturers both for their family members and the individuals in the community. The...

Summary of Tim Durham’s Ponzi scheme
The alleged fraud is over $200 million.
Durham’s main holdings were his leveraged buyout firm Obsidian Enterprises, Inc. and Fair Financial Services, both headquartered in Indianapolis, IN. When Durham acquired Fair in a 2002 leveraged buyout, it was a factoring company that purchased accounts receivable from businesses at a discount, profiting when the accounts were paid in full. It financed its operations by selling “investment certificates” to individual investors.
According to the indictment, Durham and his cohorts immediately changed Fair’s business. Rather than using the $200 million they raised from investors to purchase receivables, they...

In both of them, there are clear examples of chauvinism, which conditions the...
