This is my first time that I come to New York, so I am curious about many things in this new place, such as the famous resorts, and the people here. As we know, the Times Square is very famous in New York. When I was in China, I hope I can visit Times Square, because I saw Times Square was very great in some of the opening of American series. Now, I am in New York, and I have enough chances to visit Times Square whenever I want. In there, it gives me a new horizon to understand the culture that is different from China.
Web/Facebook: UCLA Extension has opened a new campus at the Warner Center in Woodland Hills! The new campus offers a list of various classes in some of the top career fields.

Born between 1946 and 1964, HBCU alumni ages 51 – 170 are classified as Baby Boomers (Fogg, 2008). During this time period, there was a boost in the U.S. birthrate, and according to History.com, this baby boom is arguably due to Americans desiring to get back to normalcy after 16 years of war and depression. Because people are living longer and the birth rate is declining in America, Baby Boomers are the fastest growing demographic (Jacobson, 2015). According to Jamie Carracher, a digital health strategist, approximately 80 million Baby Boomers became senior citizens as they turned 65 in 2011. This generation now accounts for 76.3 million people and close to 24 percent of the U.S. population. According to Fogg (2008) in the article “When Generations
Through reading the assigned texts and attending lectures, I have discovered a new field. Before this class, I had no idea what anthropology was or that ethnography existed. Claire Sterk discusses her ethnographic finds in “Fieldwork on Prostitution in the Era of AIDS.” I find it amazing that she chose this study. As a woman, I am unsure that it is one I could complete. However, she states that being a woman is the main reason she was allowed into this world, her golden ticket so to speak. The danger of this kind of study seems down played by her findings. Pimps launching attacks was a nearly isolated issue she described, but I feel as though there would be more. Being that I grew up in gang areas much like the areas Sterk studied, I know the dangers are both prevalent and dire. Through the beginning of the piece, the techniques she used to enter this culture are enumerated. These are pertinent to the study, but tie into the “Six Themes of Ethnographic Prostitution.”
Ethnography tells about a culture and the members that comprise this culture. A definition is the scientific description of the customs and individual people of a culture. The process of doing this assignment allowed me to explore another aspect of a cultural group. I was able to learn extensively about interactions between individuals and how see them as a culture. The group that comprises my ethnography is a cultural group very common to Utah. The culture I focused on was the LDS culture, to be more specific I studied a sub-culture of this group. My subculture was a group of 12 year old adolescents that are a Sunday school class in this culture.
This above chart is based upon a study focusing on recent graduates of Rutger’s University and their opinion on their future financial success in comparison to their parents’ generation. On the left, the students are asked what they think about the success of their generation after college. More than half, roughly 58%, believe that they would have less success than the generation before them. Only 16% believed that they would have more success and around 24% believe that both generations will have about the same amount of success. The same graduate students were then asked about the financial success they would have compared to their parents’ generation. 48% believed that they would experience more financial success than their parents, while 20% believed they would experience less financial success and 29% think that the amount of financial success would be the same.
The overall process of drawing out my ecomap and genogram was moderately easy. I drew rough drafts of both clinical tools first before completing the final copies. I found this helpful especially for the ecomap because it allowed me to organize the different ecological impacts of my life effectively. I think the hardest part of creating this clinical tool was being able to lay it out so that things that should be connected were close to each other. I liked drawing the ecomap because it was interesting to see different aspects of my life connected to each other. Thinking of the different parts of my life that I come in contact with came easily to me. In terms of completing the genogram, because I have relatively small family, this was not that
The sociocultural model of eating pathology posits that minority ethnic status confers a protective benefit against societal messages that promote the Western thin ideal (Shaw, Ramirez, Trost, Randall, & Stice, 2004). As such, ethnic minorities should demonstrate more body satisfaction and fewer eating disturbances. While previous research has supported this notion, newer studies suggest that ethnic differences in body dissatisfaction may not be as prominent as previously estimated (Grabe & Hyde, 2006; Roberts, Cash, Feingold, & Johnson, 2006). In fact, a number of relevant but often unexplored variables such as biased publication of only significant findings, age of sample, homogenous clumping of all ethnic minorities into a non-white category,
I was born into a family with two theistic religions. My father’s side was Catholic, while my mother’s side was Buddhist. Neither side was devoutly religious or pious, so they didn’t force their religions onto me. However, I did go to churches, temples, and bible studies a lot. Not because my parents or family members forced me to, but because I was a curious child and I liked being exposed to new knowledge and different things.
This is the age range that has almost entirely finished their educational requirements and is not yet retiring (Soergel, 2015). As you can see in the graph shown in figure 1, the participation has started to decline more since 2010 than in any other year. Economists generally expect the labor force participation rate to continue its gradual decline as more “baby boomers” retire. And, as more young adults choose to further their education, instead of entering the workforce. “These trends inherently are causing the U.S. to fall short of its output potential, which is why many economists consider labor force participation to be a measure of slack in the domestic labor market (Soergel,
In reviewing the culture experience within Citi Mortgage in O’Fallon Missouri, one can surely come to the conclusion that their atmosphere is very relaxed and multi culturally mixed. Having lunch with a friend, they appeared to be a mixed batch of a corporate and relaxed atmosphere. The jargon utilized was mainly wording that signified home loans, travel and lawsuits dealing with foreclosures.
Cultural patterns are described as the preferred set of responses to different life situations. According to Kluckhohn and Strodbeck’s description of cultural patterns there are 5 dimensions or elements that address the manner in which a culture orients itself to activities, social relations, the self, the world and the passage of time. In the following reflection I will identify each one of these dimensions with the cultural patterns shown in my country.
This paper will critically discuss and compare three ethnographies that were published in different times. Ethnography has became the essential field research strategy in humanities. Ethnography has turned into a made segment of the collection of examination systems. It was produced in humanities, however in late decades its utilization has spread broadly in the social sciences and the humanities. The discriminating assessment of ethnographic information is not yet overall created. Fitting utilization of this kind of material accordingly obliges an understanding of its unique qualities and shortcomings. These infer not just from the destinations that underlie ethnographic work, both cognizant and oblivious, additionally from the social foundation of the specialists, the
That is a significant difference in ideology, as said previously that the older generation tends to stick to more traditional viewpoints. As noted by table 1 as well the probability statistic has a correlation of .00 meaning that this is statistically significant in saying that the correlation between the age and the response, and that it is safe to say that majority of the population within those age ranges would respond in the same way.
