Parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. What is your opinion? Support it with personal examples.

Parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. What is your opinion? Support it with personal examples. (295 words)

Parenting is a vital role in molding the behaviors of the children. Sometimes kids behave in an unacceptable and unpredictable manner which they might have learnt from their parents.Some people think that parents are responsible for their children’s behaviors, while others argue that parents cannot take responsibility for their children’s attitudes.I am inclined to believe that parents should be held legally responsible for their children’s acts. The following paragraphs will analyze the impacts of kids’ behaviors and suggest the importance of parent’s role in raising their children.

First of all, children are like a sponge, they absorb and imitate everything they observe. Further, they spend more time with their parents in childhood. So mostly they learn language, culture and manners by observing their parents.If parents are having faith and good habits, their children will become more likely with vision in life and have good habits.For instance, after Thomas Alva Edison’s school teacher called him mentally ill in a letter, Edison’s mother hid the letter from the young inventor and homeschooled him so that he could reach his full potential.

Second of all, are responsible parenting involves not only taking care of children’s basic needs but also teaching social behavior and discipline to them. Furthermore, parents should take accountability for the damages caused by their children in the society. For example, the leading actor Jackie Chan had taken responsibility for his son’s drug use and apologized to public on behalf of him by telling that he failed to be a good father.

In conclusion, the foregoing discussion propounds the view that the parents are solely and legally responsible for their children’s act.Further, it is expected that the people make cognizance of the fact and teach their children good values and moral responsibilities.

Discuss both sides of Space travel vs. current crucial problems faced by human?

Discuss both sides of Space travel vs. current crucial problems faced by humans?

Every year, many countries spend billions of dollars for space research. While this research has some hope for the involved scientists, the huge investment in such research is highly questionable, especially in developing and underdeveloped countries. Some people think that it is unnecessary to spend money for space research than dealing with crucial problems such as overpopulation, while others argue that the space research has benefited the society lot. This essay will elaborate on both ideas and come to a logical conclusion.

On one hand, space research brings knowledge, discoveries and improvements in our daily life.It helped tremendously in weather forecasting, education and security of the country. Further, the space explorations are being conducted by many countries to research and find the possibility of extra-terrestrial species and natural resources in other planets. For instance, NASA has found the evidence of water in Mars and it is conducting further research on it.

On the other hand, people in some countries are still facing crucial problems like overpopulation, lack of food, clean water and electricity. Instead of spending more money in space travel, the developed countries should think morally and ethically to help under developed countries. For example, many people in African countries are suffering from Ebola virus infection, drought and terrorism and lot of innocent people are dying every year. If US government decides to spend money to help, these devastating problems can be eradicated soon.

In conclusion, the foregoing discussion propounds the view that the over spending of tax payers’ money to space travel will not improve the quality of human life. Further, it is expected that the people make cognizance of the fact and urge their government to focus several more urgent issues that need to be funded.

Many people think regions affect successful persons. What is your opinion about native regions and accomplished person influence on the regions they belong to?

Many people think regions affect successful persons. What is your opinion about native regions and accomplished person influence on the regions they belong to?

Majority of people believe that the place in which they are brought up, influence the success of the person. I my viewpoint there is a deep impact of the native region on the person’s success. The region, in which a person grows, provides a conducive environment, ample amount of opportunities to learn and perform and provides access to multiple resources and facilities easily.

It has been seen that every person has strong memories of his childhood. A favourable environment in childhood helps the child to explore his passion and the area of interest. If this eagerness is nurtured properly, through a good environment, the child develops confidence to show up his talent when he grows up to an adult. To illustrate, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Dhirubhai Ambani are the perfect example who were nurtured with a helpful environment.

Secondly, it is noticed that a particular type of talent, hails from a specific area. For Instance, Brazil and Argentina has produced many legendary footballers. Similarly, in the field of academics, many Indians have brought laurels to the country. When a person is successful in a distinctive domain, he becomes a source of inspiration for many people and gradually the development of skills, resources and facilities starts picking up and opens the gates for many aspirants.

Finally, one can say that, when talent gets right amount of encouragement and environment to breed, it takes the shape of success and often achieves the impossible feat.

In under developed countries, tourism has disadvantages and can be said the opposite as well. Discuss.

In under developed countries, tourism has disadvantages and can be said the opposite as well. Discuss.

Globetrotting is quite common nowadays, and plays an important role in the growth of developing nations. In my opinion, the underdeveloped countries needs to promote tourism because, it boosts up the economy, generates employment and provides a great opportunity to promote art and culture.

Tourism is one of the strongest drivers of world trade and prosperity. In many countries, tourism acts as an engine for development through foreign exchange earnings and the creation of direct and indirect employment. Tourism contributes 5% of the world’s GDP. Tourism is the first or second source of export earnings in 20 of the world’s 48 least developed countries. In some developing countries, notably small island states, tourism can account for over 25% of GDP.

Tourism is a relatively labor intensive sector and is traditionally made up of small and micro enterprises. Many tourism jobs are potentially quite accessible to the poor as they require relatively few skills and little investment. People can get engaged in jobs like transportation, lodging, tour guides, entertainment, agents, planner, cruise line staff, curators, life guards and recreation workers to name a few. In addition to it tourists can get benefits from a wide range of sectors such as agriculture, handicrafts and language translators.

Finally, with tourism, exchange of culture, knowledge, art, and skills take place. Country like India attract many international tourists for its rich and diverse culture, spirituality, yoga, meditation techniques, naturopathy, fairs, festivals, cinema, dance and other art forms. Every nation has its uniqueness. It is up to the country to realize its strengths, which can be exploited for encouraging tourism and building relations.

Pros and Cons of extreme/adventurous sports

Sports became an important part of our life. Everyone gets himself engaged in some kind of physical activities. Right from the childhood people plays sports. Trend is getting changed with the passage of time. Earlier most of people have interest in common games like cricket, hockey, football etc. Now they have developed their taste in adventurous sport like racing, boxing, climbing etc. Moreover, it’s become a passion of their life. Like a coin has two sides the extreme sports also have pros and cons.

Today, it is not easy to make name and fame in the world where everyone has some kind of talent. People want to achieve their goal to become popular. People get attracted towards adventurous sport. They believe, that by indulging in dangerous sports activities, they can become a real hero and it actually happens as we can seen in the case of Mohammad Ali, the best boxer throughout his life even though when he died many big politicians like American  president, Indian prime minister twitted for him, as a legend.

Secondly, fame and fortune comes together. Extreme sports become a popular way of making money. Great example is set by Mr. Bean Grylls. He is earning good money by doing adventurous activities. And he is famous for his show named  “Man vs. Wild”. All he does are fearless activities.

Thirdly, the thrill or adventure in extreme sports can cause a life time injury.  Michael Schumacher who is a world champion of formula one racing is suffering because of adventurous sports and has gone in coma.

In nutshell, more safety measures need to be taken in extreme sports because life is a precious gift of God.

Essay 2

Adventure or dangerous sports are now becoming a new trend in today’s generation. However, some still think these sports has a risk of life and should be excluded. These sports have both advantages and disadvantages. According to me, the advantages of these sports are considerable like it is more thrilling and adventurous, acts as a stress busters and keeps us fit and energetic. However, it also has some disadvantages like it involves risk of life and property and have a negative effect on teenagers.

To begin with, adventurous sports usually have many benefits and are more popular among youngsters. These sports are done with a voluntary consent and helps an individual in many ways like it acts as a stress busters and also helps in increasing adrenal rush in body.Sports activities like White water rafting and Base Jumping, which are quite popular among the youngsters gives them a lot of thrill and excitement. It also instills a sense of achievement and set goals for others. Sports like para gliding and sky diving also help us in overcoming the phobias. Alexander Polli who got his fame in sky diving has set a new example for other people.

Secondly, dangerous sports have some disadvantages which outnumbers the advantages. It mainly includes the risk of life and permanent disabilities. Whereas it may act as a stress buster for athletes but it keeps the family members and near ones in stress every time as a result of these sports. Some athletes have also died because of their adventurous nature like Paul Walker- a famous actor and a car racer, who died in a car accident.

Like two sides of a coin, extreme sports come with their own set of merits and demerits. But one should always consider the positive sides and ignore its negative aspects also.

The 21st Century has begun. What changes do you think this new century will bring ? Use examples and details to explain your answer.

Historically, evolution has been in nature’s hands. Now, suddenly, it is largely in human hands, but we need to be cautious, using our scientific know-how as responsibly as possible. The job of today’s young people, or the “Transition Generation” will be to get humanity through the coming period of chaos, peril, and opportunity. Cognitive abilities of humans has helped him to transform Stone Age into age of technology in a phased manner.21st century heralded the era of transformation in every sphere of life to make the quality of life better . Be it education, infrastructure, medicines, weapons, food and the like.

 With the development of infrastructure and means of communication like railways, airways, shipways, cars , world has transformed into global village . It is not just their development but also its frequency and speed which is constantly being improved and this century will witness self driven vehicles, flying cars, mono rails, space tourism and many more inventions which are beyond our imagination.

Life on extra terrestrial planets would become a reality. Astronomical innovations have provided us new insights into life which was earlier restricted to earth. It will help us to discover medicines of incurable or life threatening diseases as our space is treasure of rare earth materials and energy. It is already a proven fact that surgeries done in space have better result.

The basic problems of hunger, malnutrition, drinking water, with which our world is still afflicted would be lost into oblivion. With cutting edge technologies in food production like gene sequencing , Genome project, Bio-technology food, cross pollination , we will be able to grow foods with desired nutrients and too less land will be required to grow too much food.

However on the flip side, this century will also pose us with various threats in the form of global warming and subsequent thinning of ozone layer which may have catastrophic effects on all life forms on earth and might usher what is called as “Fifth Mass Destruction”. Also new diseases are emerging like Zika Virus, SARS, H1N1 flu, and new types of cancers. Furthermore due to changes in food chain there has been invasion of alien species which are intensifying the damage. Development of weapons of mass destruction like hydrogen bomb, chemical bombs would further pose new threats. Human cloning, Stem cells preservation may also bring unthinkable dangers.

All such fears have to be tackled and managed with utmost level of care and sophistication. Only then we can enjoy the real fruits of time. And we should be ready for all the threats by catapulting our strengths .
