THE YEAR THAT WAS(2011-12)
In a year marked by mass protests, the awakening that swept the Arab world stood out. The Arab spring was sparked by rallies in Tunisia that followed the self-immolation in late 2010 of a young market worker angered by police harassment. He died in hospital in January, prompting thousands to take to the streets in sometimes violent clashes that forced the long-time president, Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, to flee to Saudi Arabia.
Emboldened by the outcome in Tunisia, protesters soon rose up in other Arab countries. Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians filled the centre of Cairo and camped in Tahrir Square to call for Hosni Mubarak to step down. After three decades in power, Mr Mubarak withstood only three weeks of strife. Although frail, he eventually stood trial (due to resume soon) for the deaths that occurred when his security forces tried to quash the protests.
Elsewhere, Yemen’s president fled in June and eventually signed a transition deal to end his 33-year reign; Saudi troops helped to put down unrest in Bahrain; and reform was embraced in Morocco and Jordan. But the Arab spring was met with stiff resistance in Syria, where protests were brutally put down by Bashar Assad’s regime, resulting in over 7,000 deaths so far.
In Libya Muammar Qaddafi caused a civil war after he tried to crush an opposition movement that spread from Benghazi. NATO aircraft enforced a no-fly zone, endorsed by the Arab League, in support of the rebels. After a summer of conflict, Qaddafi was captured by rebels in his home town and swiftly killed. He had ruled Libya since 1969.
Russia’s Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, hatched a plan to run for president again in 2012. But his coronation might not run so smoothly this time. His United Russia party did not do as well as expected in parliamentary elections (amid allegations of ballot fraud), after which anti-Putin…...

...Comparing Two Magazines  For my compare and contrast essay, I have decided to compare two magazines in the financial business. The name of the first magazine is” The economist” and the second magazine is “Forbes”  The theme of the first magazine is to highlight, how and what type of businesses to start and make money without putting in much of the hard work. The very first page of the magazine shows an absolute image of the man and women dressed up with lots of money and a road of success. The magazine rapidity claims” Sure ways to make money”. It seems like editor is personally involved in guaranteeing the success of the business with highlighting text displaying “Make $40 Million with eco-friendly herbs and sprouts” or “Make 15 million in the first year with Dollar Varity stores”  As I am turning and reading pages more and more, I realize that this magazine is not meant to show issues, techniques, pros and cons of starting up a business but it is more like infomercials showing the top returns one can reap from his investments. The magazine forces me to realize that I am missing an essential experience in my life by not starting up the business. The magazine displays beautiful color and picture schemes. The magazine also highlights few of the success stories of the entrepreneurs. Overall this magazine makes business as a seamless transition of normal day today activity to a profit generating machine, but to some extent it also highlights few......

...Name: Mohammad Omar Kothawala Instructor: Rod Sachs Subject: ENGL 1301 Date: 11/30/2012 College Education: Worth the money? The value of higher education or college degree is now in jeopardy. This statement appears to be surprising as it gives an impression of breaking the norm Due to the global economic crisis accompanied by inflation, rising cost of living, soaring rates of unemployment, Professor Richard K. Vedder, of Ohio University, who is the founder of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, has put forth an argument, “Is college really worth it?.” Professor Vedder argues that the purpose of college is to get a job and according to an article in Times magazine, (pg. 56, 7 June, 2011) goes on to comment, “why fifteen percent of mail carriers have a bachelor’s degrees,” that it was a waste not just monetarily but of time and energy too. He feels a better bargain would have been to invest in the acquisition of skills appropriate to the work place which would have secured a credible future. Although this may appear valid at first glance, those who have a stake in higher education argue that there is plenty of evidence that suggest a college degree is worth it. For example, in response to professor Vedder attempts to promote an alternative to college degree, Dean Julie Morgan of the University of California at Los Angeles college of liberal arts and Sciences asserts that “four year degree program is one of the best investment in your life time” I......

People Magazine

...People Magazine People Magazine, first released in 1974, is completely devoted to stardom and the lives of those stars. Our modern day culture is fascinated by what stars are doing, what they are wearing, who they are dating, where they are eating, and the list goes on to cover every little detail of famous people’s lives. Fame comes in many different forms in our culture today from professional athletes to actors to Kardashians, and people in today’s culture try to escape their own lives by reading about the lifestyles of these people. The notion of fame was not the same around the late 19th and early 20th century. There were large names such as Andrew Carnegie or JP Morgan, but working and middle class people were not obsessed over how these wealthy people were living. The closest thing to a magazine like People that existed was the notion of a painted woman. Painted woman stories were in the papers that covered sensational murders of women who were often incredibly beautiful and morally virtuous but for some reason strayed off course and paid the ultimate punishment for it. People around the turn of the 20th century were fascinated with these people, but the fascination was not an envy to be like them. There was not a fixation on becoming famous and well-known back then. American culture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was undergoing serious change. The industrial revolution led to significant economic growth and concentration of wealth during the turn of......

College

... The Cost of College In today’s society college education is needed to achieve a successful career. Jobs have become increasingly difficult to get without a college degree. I think that college education is getting costly especially in today’s economy. Although, I believe that people should go to college and comprehend the importance of higher learning, and to have access to higher social and economic class. “Therefore, one issue that most of college students face when getting a college education are tuitions bill and years of debt. As a consequence a higher percentage of dropout students that is increasing date to date.” (Eduardo Porter) After I graduate high school I had struggled for money to pay for college which I think it is very hard once you are used to free education all your life. Thereof, paying so much money for a higher education is bringing the number down of students who are earning a degree, and is declining over the years. I believe that it is much easier for `students who come from an wealthy family that have opportunity to enroll in college right out of high school because they can afford it. However for students in a lower income family like me tuition rates make that near impossible. I believe that if high schools refocus on training students for jobs that lead directly to apprenticeships it could lead the student to a well-paying employment that increase income to be able to afford college cost . I have been......

...is hindering a majority of the third world nations from actually making any progress. He says “Political Corruption is widespread in contemporary societies, and is regarded by some analysts of the Third World as the single most important obstacle to economic development and political integration.” (175). But is political corruption really the only thing that is holding nations back? Corruption among the so called “citizens” that are meant to stand for their country is vastly increasing. It is a cankerworm that has eaten too deep into the social fabric of nations and is still doing so. When we hear “corruption,” we often prefer to think political corruption, corruption among our leaders, and corruption among those in power and those in wealth. Wikipedia describes political corruption as “the use of power by government officials for illegitimate private gain.” (Wikipedia). Robert Tignor, writer of “Political Corruption in Nigeria before Independence” agrees that corruption is what is hindering a majority of the third world nations from actually making any progress. He says “Political Corruption is widespread in contemporary societies, and is regarded by some analysts of the Third World as the single most important obstacle to economic development and political integration.” (175).

How to Be a Leading Finance Magazine

...How to be a Leading Finance Magazine— A Case Study of Caijing By Lin Hong GRADUATION PAPER May 19, 2010 Paper submitted to the School of Magazineism and Communication of Xiamen University in partial fulfillment of requirements for the bachelors degree. Zhuang Hongming was faculty adviser. ABSTRACT Wang Shuo, the deputy editor of Caijing, a famous finance magazine for its specific editing style in China, said: “We are doing everything possible while the main line has never changed. We report events we think readers should focus on, and stories we consider to be important but not completely to follow market rules. It is not a magazine that simply caters to readers’ taste, but one that is of enlightenment, and of elitist thoughts. " "Independent, exclusive, original" is always the rule that Caijing has been following. Then how the magazine implements the rule successfully is what this research is concerned about, because in today’s chaotic magazine market, manage a magazine in a specific way is a problem related to survival and development. Therefore, the hints from the study of Caijing are significant to the magazine industry. That is the purpose of this paper.

Magazine Controversy

...Reality Magazine covers have always been known to push the limit. It’s a fantastic marketing ploy to grab the attention of consumers. Think about it, you are walking down an aisle or standing in line at the market to check out, what is going to stand out more to you and easily grab your attention? Is it going to be a magazine cover with a modestly dressed man or women? Or perhaps a magazine cover with a provocative Miley Cyrus or a cover with an extremely, well known very hated face for example? The more absurd or obscene the image the faster and more likely it is going to grab our attention. The Rolling Stone magazine cover did just that when their August 1, 2013 issue was released headlining the Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. There are numerous reasons why the majority of Americans were enraged by the cover choice the Rolling Stone’s made, but I’m not one of them. To be in the entertainment industry and land the cover of the Rolling Stone magazine is an honor. “It goes without saying that if you are featured under those two journalistically iconic words, than you have made it” (International Business, Times. “Rolling Stone Cover Sparks.”). The band Dr. Hooks even wrote a song about wanting to be on the cover of the Rolling Stone; “But the thrill we’ve never known, is the thrill that’ll getcha when you get your picture, on the cover of the Rollin’ Stone” (Silverstein). However, the Rolling Stone magazine isn’t just for stars in the entertainment industry. The......

Economics

...Principles of Economics Kathleen Lochiatto Strayer University ECO 1000 Week 4 Professor Niquelle Wright . You own a local sub shop in a college town. You primarily serve two groups of people: (Students and other local residents) and visitors to your town. Devise a price discrimination strategy that will increase your revenues compared to a single- price strategy. Marketing to these groups would not be hard, you need good ideas and price to catch both parties. First, I would market the weekends to the college students. Late night menus seem to catch the eye of the students, because they are either out or studying. For the other groups like the families, Monday thru Wednesday would be good day to market and sell to them. Families are either running around getting the kids from place to place for sporting events or other activities and do not have time to have a sit down diner at home. Offering discounts on the weekdays make it easier for them to grab something for the family to eat on the go. College students usually do not have much cash, so any discount on food is welcoming to them. Some college eateries are not open on the weekends the same as during the week the hours of operation change due to the class schedule. Getting the college to agree letting the student be able to use their meals at the sub shop would be a win win for both establishments. The college would get a percentage of the sale from the students who use this program. The......

Beauty and Magazines

...Women and Beauty Magazines by Christine Hetcher             Beauty magazines, such as Cosmopolitan, Glamour, and Marie Claire, are widely read by women throughout America .  What do women actually think of these magazines?  Do they feel the magazines are helpful, degrading, or simply something to read?  This paper is a survey interview to determine what women in their late teens and early twenties think about beauty magazines in Americatoday.  The purpose of this study is to determine whether women like or dislike beauty magazines, why they like or dislike them, and how frequently women read beauty magazines. Background             This section reviews the previous studies conducted on the effects of women’s magazines. Magazines specifically written for women have been in circulation for over sixty years, discussing whatever issues were relevant to women at the time (Moskowitz, 1996).  Some of the earlier magazines focused on a war-time rebellion of feminism.  Moskowitz (1996) conducted a study about the effects of war-time magazines and said, “Women’s magazines of the Cold War era remain symbols of antifeminism” (p. 66).  Moskowitz (1996) found that many women liked the articles because many magazines discussed important issues to them, such as stress, emotionalism, and feminism (p.66).  Moskowitz (1996) said, “recognition of emotional tension was common for women’s magazines” (p.67).  This recognition “presented a whole new genre of articles that gave housewives the......
