The society and culture of Pakistan (Urdu: ثقافت پاکستان‎) comprises numerous diverse cultures and ethnic groups: the Punjabis, Kashmiris, Sindhis in east, Muhajirs, Makrani in the south; Baloch and Pashtun in the west; and the ancient Dardic, Wakhi, Baltistani and Burusho communities in the north. These Pakistani cultures have been greatly influenced by many of the surrounding countries' cultures, such as the Turkic peoples, Persian, Arab, and other South Asian ethnic groups of the Subcontinent, Central Asia and the Middle East.
In ancient times, Pakistan was a major cultural hub.[citation needed] Many cultural practices and great monuments have been inherited from the time of the ancient rulers of the region.

The Marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet

...The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet The definition of a good marriage is the perception of the judge. When considering who is to blame for the Bennet's marriage, it must be said that it depends on which perspective is being considered. Jane Austen's portrayal of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's union leads us to believe this was not a match made in Heaven. However, if the marriage is looked at from different perspectives such as; Mr. Bennet’s, Mrs. Bennet’s, circumstance, or society’s, they provide opposing views of happiness and who is to blame in the absence of joy. After all are considered, is the marriage that bad? A person’s reasons to get married are essential in determining whether or not they can be happy. Society dictated that the Bennet's marriage was contractually imperative for both of them. Mrs. Bennet wanted to be secure and accepted a proposal that she thought would be acceptable. Mr. Bennet wanted a wife to take care of his needs and give him children, preferably a son. Both were tolerable to the other in the beginning and entered into the marriage with freewill. Early in the novel we learn the Bennet's marriage is portrayed as ill-fitted. They appear to be two opposites in humor, character, tact and priorities. In Chapter 1 we read: Mr. Bennet was so odd a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice, that the experience of three-and-twenty years had been insufficient to make his wife understand his character. Her......

Mr. Moeed

...EC 1003 Topic in Applied Microeconomics By Abdul Moeed Coursework for Alice Mesnard a) This policy can be warranted firstly due to policy makers using subsidized prices, this justifies the policy because it increases cost effectiveness; this is vital in developing countries due to the economy undergoing important growth. By applying known and cost effective measures to diseases such as this, treatment policies could significantly reduce many preventable diseases. Moreover the policy can be acceptable due to delivering preventive treatments, this justifies the policy mainly because the preventive treatments act as a "herd immunity", if a critical portion of community is immunized against a disease, most members of the community are protected against the disease because there is less opportunity for an outbreak. This will lead to better health of individuals in the society and will increase the productivity of the people. So, people will work more and this will be beneficial for the economy improving the standards of living and more earnings. b) The short run effects can be evaluated utilizing information, for example the change in attendance at school. This would permit the experts to gather the impacts of inoculation. Other than that, health of kids can be checked and if its improving, the visits to doctors will decrease and this will be a positive sign for the government. However, this depends on the children because in the developing countries most of them......

But Mr. Brooks has a terrible secret that he has been able to hide from everyone. That terrible secret happens to be that he is a psychopathic serial killer who is known in media as the “Thumbprint Killer.” Being a wealthy, successful businessman recently honored by the Portland, Oregon, Chamber of Commerce as "Man of the Year" as well as a philanthropist no one has ever suspected him. Being unable to control his horrific addiction, Brooks gives in to his sadistic, all too real alter ego “Marshall” played by William Hurt. A pesky, voyeuristic witness “Mr. Smith,” played by Dane Cook catches him in the act of his latest crime. The rush that Mr. Smith felt after seeing Mr. Brooks brutally kill a couple he used to watch and take pictures of while engaging in sexual activities has set him on a path of destruction and he is taking all the wrong steps to get there. Then there’s the detective, “Tracy Atwood,” played by Demi Moore who has been on the case for quite some time without Mr. Brooks knowledge of it adds a few twists and turns to an already terrifying game of cat and mouse. The way the script has been written, is a “moral” one. You have a man, “Mr. Brooks” who is......
