An immigrant is a term used to refer to individuals who move from distant lands to new settlements and consequently establishing permanent residency there (Alesina, Miano, & Stantcheva, 2018). Immigrants are found all around the globe. The movement of these individuals from one region to another is triggered by political, environmental and social factors, among others. Some of these factors include lack of adequate security, poverty, war, drought, and high crime rates (Richter, Taylor, & Yúnez-Naude, 2018). Immigration results in positive impacts on the economy where the establishment of permanent residencies has occurred and the individuals since there is an evident improvement of their living standards. The migration of immigrants from one locality to another is attributed to various difficulties in the movement and settlement processes as shifting to new lands requires adoption to unfamiliar environments and foreign individuals. In this essay, a comprehensive analysis of the presentation titled ‘The Immigrant Experience’ shall be done, and a critique perspective of it presented.
The name “Proto-Renaissance” is employed in fine art to describe a certain duration in Italy, referred to as the pre-Renaissance times. Several academicians involved with the study of art argue if the artistic works in Italy between the 13th and 15th centuries were the final stages of medieval art or the commencement of rebirth, also termed the French renaissance. Despite this minor controversy, the artists agree that this period faced significant changes in Western art. During this period in history, several artists contributed to this major change in fine art. Some of them include Giotto, whose works were exhibited between 1267 to 1337, Nicola Pisano during the 1259 to 1260 period and Giovanni Pisano, who had great influence during 1302 to 1310 by his artistic works, among others.
The majority rule does not defend individual rights. Majority rule is used in various democratic societies where political decisions are made by attaining majority support. This majority support is believed to protect the needs and rights of all people; however, this is not the case. One reason why majority rule does not defend individual rights is that the majority might be against the protection of individual rights, especially the rights of the minority. In many cases, the majority mostly choose laws or systems that protect them at the expense of the minorities. This then undermines the rights of the minorities. Instances of the majority using their rule to undermine the rights of the minorities can be seen in various countries, including the United States. In the US, the majority used their rule to create and support racial systems. These systems affected crucial aspects of the lives of the racial minorities, including employment, housing, credit, and immigration. As a result, minority races such as African Americans experienced a declining quality of life (Pager & Shepherd, 2008). Cases of discrimination by the majority have also been reported in South Africa. In South Africa, the Colored and Indian citizens and representatives are reporting cases of discrimination in access to opportunities. This discrimination is in favor of the Black majority (Murray & Simeon, 2007.
The selected film is The Kissing Booth, an American romantic comedy. The film is about the friendship between Elle Evans, played by Joey King and Lee Flynn, played by Joel Courtney. Elle and Lee were born by mothers who were best friends. They started their friendship from childhood and continued throughout the film. This friendship is shaken when Elle falls in love with Lee’s brother Noah Flynn, played by Jacob Elordi. While there were no romantic feelings between Lee and Elle, both friends had agreed to avoid dating each other’s family while they were children. The childhood pact makes Elle and Noah make their affair secretive. Eventually, Lee finds out and gets angry at Elle and his brother. Lee, later on, accepts the relationship between Elle and Noah. This happens when Noah is about to leave town for college in Boston. Elle, later on, escorts Noah to the airport, which marks the end of their love affair. This essay examines the film based on the youth transitions and youth culture topics and shows how the film presents the topics of family/home/social class, gender and sexuality.
The patient, Tyler Morton, was diagnosed with motor neuron disease (MND) specifically amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS is a disease that affects the motor system and leads to muscle weakness and wasting. The disease spreads to different parts of the body including the respiratory muscles. A decline in respiratory muscles subsequently leads to death. The survivability of the disease is around 2 to 5 years after the onset (Masrori & Van Damme, 2020). Since there is no cure for ALS, palliative care is the most relevant form of intervention for patients with the condition (Oliver, 2019). This paper critiques the care provided to Tyler Morton by comparing the care provided to the patient with a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG).
Technical communication is part of scientific discourse and genre in which the subject is always of a specialized nature, and the audience involves people of particular expertise. The structure of a technical paper, therefore, reflects unique attributes of sentence structure and standard paper formatting requirements. For instance, the form may require a preamble and organized tables of contents and systematic way of citing the sources used and bibliographic annotation. Traditionally, technical writing mainly addressed subjects of engineering and specialized social sciences in which advanced research and knowledge were relevant. This paper explores the field of technical communication through the lens of technology and mechanics of writing, schemes and styles and the grand rhetorical tropes involved in the field. As opposed to journalistic and creative writing, technical writing manifests a focus on a particular subject through expository and explorative writing style to convey knowledge.
Every department must have a working policy detailing how to achieve objectives in the organization’s interest, including its workforce (Joshi, 2013). HR policies are an outcome of these working principles and rules of conduct governing the firm’s relationship with its employees. There are two perspectives from which do discuss Google’s HR policies. The first is the employee motivation perspective, which essentially focuses on how the company motivates employees and creates a comfortable working environment. According to Thomas & Karodia (2014), Google’s ability to attract a talented workforce stems from its attractive packages, which act as the pull factor. It offers employees competitive salaries, bonuses, and stock awards at regular time intervals. It also encourages and rewards outstanding performance achievement amongst the employees. The Google campus has a series of facilities, leisure and recreational activities, and benefits to promote a comfortable working environment, enhance employee wellbeing, creativity, and consequent performance (Samani et al., 2014; Aksoy, 2017). Google also offers its employees flexible work hours, work from home opportunities, telecommuting, and generous vacation policies to help maintain a proper work-life balance, reducing stress and increasing job satisfaction levels and performance (Adnan Bataineh, 2019). Finally, Google also offers employees career development opportunities by emphasizing 20% work, allowing them to dedicate 20% of their time to be creative and innovative. It an exciting feature for existing and prospecting employees, as it provides them with some level of autonomy, thus serving as an attractive tool to retain employees in the organization (Thomas & Karodia, 2014)
Employment is crucial in ensuring that human needs are addressed. Employment refers to any connection between two people or an individual and a company that governs labour performance for a fee paid by the person or company who benefits from the job. In an employment relationship, employment rules preserve the working connection between the parties involved and control all actions resulting from the relationship. They primarily serves to safeguard both parties engaged in employment contracts. Any breach of the employment contract can result in legal or disciplinary action, as agreed upon before the employment agreement.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), schizophrenia affects 1 in 300 (approximately 24 million) people worldwide, causing psychosis and compromising their cognitive capacity, behavior, and moods (World Health Organization). The article Theory of Mind in Schizophrenia by Mirjam Sprong, Patricia Schothorst, Ellen Vos, Joop Hox, and Herman Van Engeland investigates the theory of mind and its relationship to schizophrenia, concluding that the “theory of mind is impaired in individuals with schizophrenia” (Sprong et al. 5). The primary goal of the article is to “assess the magnitude of the deficit and analyze associated factors,” as well as to “investigate the extent of mentalizing impairment in people with schizophrenia” (Sprong et al. 5,10).
