Louis van Gaal's team have yet to win away in the league, a record that at least the beleaguered David Moyes could point to with some pride last season. Here, though they scored two very fine goals, they were undone with disconcerting ease on the break and struggled for fluency throughout. A point at the Hawthorns, on balance, is not a poor result, but it is not the stuff of which pushes for UEFA Champions League places are made -- particularly with such stern challenges immediately ahead.
Player Ratings (1-10; 10=best. Players introduced after 70 minutes get no rating):
(GK) David De Gea, 6 --De Gea was not at fault for either West Bromwich Albion goal. The opener from Stephane Sessegnon was past him almost before he saw it, a strike too sublime for even his remarkable reflexes. Also, when Saido Berahino advanced upon his goal in the second half, he did so unencumbered by any challenges from the Manchester United defence other than a futile howl from Rafael, since they had been caught flat-footed by Chris Brunt's through ball. De Gea stepped forward smartly to intercept a pass here or there, but was otherwise blameless for the frustrating spectacle.
(DF) Luke Shaw, 5 --Shaw looked somewhat exposed throughout. This was possibly because Angel Di Maria abandoned his defensive post at most available opportunities, which is unusual for the Argentina playmaker, but also because Shaw showed a worrying tendency to concede possession high up the pitch in dangerous areas, and a failure -- not of diligence, but of precision -- to win it back. The effort was there, but the impact, conspicuously, was not.
(DF) Marcos Rojo, 7 --Poor Rojo. He will figure most prominently in the highlight film for both West Bromwich Albion goals, but was the least to blame of the back four for either. He was left helpless when Sessegnon strode forward for his early strike, and closest to Berahino when he surged through. Despite his reputation for being somewhat rash in the tackle -- he did, after all, earn a yellow late on -- he was positionally sound for most of the game, and dealt well with West Bromwich's nimble strike force, dispossessing them calmly on a handful of occasions. He was one of few to emerge with credit this evening.
(DF) Phil Jones, 5 --Jones struggled with his distribution and positioning, generally looking out of sorts. He was slow to retreat, and slow to advance; he is a player whom Manchester United have missed, but this is not the version of Phil Jones that his teammates were expecting to see. Perhaps his sluggishness was due to his lack of game time. Whatever the reason, he looked off the pace throughout, and a fixture against so canny an attack was always going to be a tough proposition for him. So, unfortunately, it proved.
(DF) Rafael, 6 --Rafael looked extremely purposeful at times, and save one or two pieces of loose passing generally used the ball fairly well. He also pressed forward well in Manchester United's one true period of dominance, at the

Lusitania

...The Lusitania Goes Under What happened to the Lusitania on it's last journey across the Atlantic Ocean? Why did the ship get torpedoed? Was it against laws set forth by many of the countries of the early 1900s? These are many of the questions often asked when World War I is being discussed in many history classes. With the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, the countries of Austria, Germany, Russia, France, Britain, and Serbia initially felt the tensions increasing either through the arms race or the forming of various alliances and treaties. On, 28 July 1914, the war was official and new types of warfare had been implemented in ways never before used. The early machine guns were now employed to keep enemies in their trenches, airplanes were soaring in the skies, tanks were rolling over trenches, and the most devastating of all, the submarine was now an effective and efficient killing machine. The submarine could stalk enemy ships and attack them without any warning or retribution. The earliest submarine, the Turtle, was used in the American Revolutionary War, but it had little success. (American 1) Now, the submarines used in World War I were redesigned and fitted with better weaponry for fighting a war of stealth and destruction. Submarines had many famous or infamous attacks on naval vessels depending on which side of the history books the country was on. (Germans 1) The one attack that changed World War I was submarine attack on the Lusitania...

What Really Caused the Us to Enter Into Ww 1

...Princip. Another factor that caused this Great War was Austria competing with Serbia and Russia for territory and influence in Balkan’s. But if this was a war happening on the land masses of Europe and Asia, how did this effect the United States? What caused the United States to enter into World War One? The United States entered into World War One when Germany broke a pledge that was established during the war in 1916 that restricted Germany’s use of U-boats in their war effort (primarily their target selection). The German U-boat was a powerful and effective tool that Germany had at its disposal during World War One. While other nations had vast superior fleets of war ships in their navies (especially the British Royal Navy) that the Germans knew they were no match for on the surface, they would instead use their U-boats to attack these war ships from a submersed position where these other countries fleets could not effectively counter engage, giving the Germans a deadly advantage over these superior Navy fleets. The German U-boat was given birth from through an arms race between the Germans and the British. The arms race was very costly for both the Germans and the British. The ships the British built, the Dreadnoughts, were highly effective compared to those ships built by the Germans, resulting in most of their ships not...

America's Entry Into World War I

...America’s Entry into World War I Abandoning the traditional isolationist foreign policy initiated by the founding fathers, the U.S. entered World War I in April 1917. Despite President Woodrow Wilson’s intent to remain neutral, the central theme of his re-election campaign, a series of events practically coerced American entry into the Great War. Speculation surrounds exactly which event served as the catalyst for military mobilization, with many historians pointing towards the German sinking of the British ocean liner Lusitania. While the Lusitania sinking provided pro-ally propaganda, and temporarily soured relations with Germany, several other events actually facilitated the road to war for the U.S. Prior to American entry to World War I, the overwhelming sentiment was one of neutrality. With immigration on the rise, one out of every eleven Americans was German, or approximately 27% of the population, making German the largest ethnic group in America. The American economy grew early on in the war. War materials sold to the Allies, particularly Britain and France, provided a huge boon to the economy as Britain alone spent approximately $10 million per day in the states. Relations and popular opinion quickly changed however, as Germany initiated unrestricted submarine warfare on all shipping vessels around Britain, triggering President Woodrow Wilson to cease bi-lateral relations with Germany in February 1917. This was not the first time relations degraded between......

Submarine Warfare

...Atlantic commenced in 1939. The directive was to sink more supply line ships than the Allies could replace to force a surrender through starvation and lack of supplies. This initiative created what was known as the Battle of the Atlantic. Known as the longest continuous campaign of World War II, the Battle of the Atlantic mostly involved the Allies protecting the shipping routes across the Atlantic which were constantly being intercepted by German U-boats. The Nazi’s submarines, referred to by most as U-boats, were more like submersible ships than submarines at the time. They ran on diesel engines for their surface time and battery for their submersed. They dove beneath the water only when they were attacked or for torpedo strikes during the day. More often attacks were made on the surface at night. This was extremely effective in the early years of the war as they were virtually untraceable due to the lack of sonar technologies at the time. This time was known to Germans as “die gluckliche Zeit” or “the happy time”. Many classes of U-boats were made, but the most prominent of them were Type VII, the workhorse (700 active), Type IX, larger with operations involving the Indian Ocean and South Atlantic, Type XIV, known as the Elektroboot developed to perform best while submerged. Concerning the successful type IX, detailed description included a double hull construction, with a torpedo count of twenty two, with six tubes for firing. Anti-aircraft guns were outfitted on the......

The Man Who Was Almost a Man

...Childish Behaviors in “The Man Who Was Almost A Man” In Richard Wright’s “The Man Who Was Almost A Man”, there are a constant examples of irony that is opposite of its literal meaning in the story. This irony, in which Dave expresses his needs to be acknowledged as a adult, but he does a lot of immature acts. In “A Man Who Was Almost A Man”, Dave acts of manhood worked against him. He goes about trying to get respect in the wrong ways. He wants a gun for respect, he wants to be a real man but his mother keeps his money, and he runs away from his debts, which is something a real man would never do. Wright’s purpose for writing is to not only show how immature Dave is but to show that becoming a man is a lengthy process and t help someone else avoid those same childish acts. The transition from manhood to adulthood is quiet and force to be reckoned with but Dave shows that his childish mind has a lot to accomplish. A gun is merely a piece of metal tube in which bullets are propelled out of and a noise is given off. Dave wants a gun or metal tube for all of the wrong reasons. He believes that if he had a gun or brought a gun his co-workers would no longer treat him like an boy, in which he really is. Dave is only a young man who is trying to find his identity in his little hometown in the South. Every male wants to have power, to be masculine, and respected but if you still have a child mindset, there is no way possible that a person well ever take u serious and......

Symposium

...Plato's Symposium Translated by Benjamin Jowett from Collected Works of Plato, 4th Edition, Oxford U. Press, 1953 (189c-189d) p 520 to (193d-193e) p 525 Aristophanes professed to open another vein of discourse; he had a mind to praise Love in another way, unlike that of either Pausanias or Eryximachus. Mankind, he said, judging by their neglect of him, have never, as I think, at all understood the power of Love. For if they had understood him they would surely have built noble temples and altars, and offered solemn sacrifices in his honour; but this is not done, and most certainly ought to be done: since of all the gods he is the best friend of men, the helper and the healer of the ills which are the great impediment to the happiness of the race. I will try to describe his power to you, and you shall teach the rest of the world what I am teaching you. In the first place, let me treat of the nature of man and what has happened to it. The original human nature was not like the present, but different. The sexes were not two as they are now, but originally three in number; there was man, woman, and the union of the two, of which the name survives but nothing else. Once it was a distinct kind, with a bodily shape and a name of its own, constituted by the union of the male and the female: but now only the word 'androgynous' is preserved, and that as a term of reproach. In the second place, the primeval man was round, his back and sides forming a circle; and he had four......

Civilization

...more equal amongst the adult male and female in the house hold. In today’s society the women is still treated un equal, less human rights than a man and the American culture still tends to believe that a women can’t do a job that a man can. In the modern age, the women were expected to raise the children, keep the house cleaned and have dinner ready when the man gets home at the end of the day. Families were not able to pay for the expense of child care so the mother stayed home with the children. Many of the children were also home taught because school was too expensive or too far for the family to travel to. The man in the house hold tried to do some hunting and they grew their own crops to cut down on the cost of food. Times started to change and families could barely get by so it became worthwhile for the female to try and find a way to help out the family financial as well. When it was time for the women to enter the work field, it was difficult for them at first. Employers had a lot of doubt in the female’s work ability and the quality of the job they were capable of. In the eye of an employer, men are seen to be a strong individual and women are seen to be weak. For a while there was doubt in a woman being capable of being a fire fighter, mail carrier, police officer because these were known as jobs that only a man was capable of carrying out. When the opportunity happened for a female to work on a dairy farm she was looked down upon because of the......

...Varias, Licelle B. 30 January 2012 Hume10 U-3R Ma’am Christine Marie Reyes Sexuality Realizations It was only three weeks ago when I learned that my aunt, whom I thought is a self-proclaimed lesbian because of her physical appearance, body movements, and past relationships with the same sex, is dating a guy from Manila. She related to us (me and my siblings) how she got to know that guy and how she told him that she has had relationships with women. I was shocked after hearing her story, and realized one thing – that my aunt is not really a lesbian, but a bisexual instead. Thanks to my Sosc3 and Hume10 classes, I finally distinguished the differences between genders. I’ll be turning 18 this February and for the past few days, I keep asking myself how mature did I become back when I had my first menstruation. Although honestly, I really don’t believe that maturity starts right after menarche, the earliest memory I can recall about ‘maturity’ was that moment. It was a Saturday, 17th day of September 2006 to be exact. After my mother found out that I had my menstruation, she started reciting to me the ‘rules of maturity’ that were passed from my great grandmother down to my grandmother, to my mother and her girl siblings, to my older sister, and that time – to me. Funny as it may sound, but it is something about sexuality and its importance. My grandmother is prominent in our place because she belonged to a group called ‘Tres Marias’, named......

I will start by looking at the sociology of family, giving a brief insight into the main theory’s and how it helps us to understand what the sociology of family is essentially about. Following on from this I will look at masculinity giving the main ideas of it and how it has changed and shifted roles in past decades.

Finally I will finish by looking at the main advantages and disadvantages of this change in masculinity in recent decades looking also at how it has changed the sociology of family. When looking at the sociology of family we see that it is an extremely broad field of study and can really be split into four main theories of which to look at the sociology of family, these being: 1. “Functionalist theory: Looks at the essential tasks provided by the family e.g. Socialisation: Regulation of sexual activity.
