In social aspects, there are many disadvantages of school uniforms. Uniform policies do give effects on student behaviour. In order to cultivate students who possess variety of skills, who can form original ideas, and who can make independent decisions, it is important to encourage individuality among them, choosing a style of their own does encourages each students to be independent and it will also let them make their own decisions. However, mandatory uses of school uniforms deprive student’s opportunity to choose their own particular styles. In addition, according to (Wades and Stanford, 2003) as cited in (Seunghee Han, 2011), uniform policies have a bad impact for the growth of positive first class intellectual student’s self opinion. Furthermore, to strengthen the social skills and confidence level in students, school should let them proudly display their personalities and values. In fact, requiring students to wear school uniforms discourages them from embracing their personalities in social settings. Besides, they will be constantly worried and stressed by the uniform code violation. Thus, mandatory school uniforms can have lasting harmful effects on the student’s willingness in front of their peers. Next, uniform policies do influence the crime rates in school by increasing the rates because of the equality-based perspective. When we uniforms are been uses, there are sense of equality among the students. On top of that, we can’t run away from the fact that students tend to form a gang with their members. For example, when there is case like bullying, these gangs are harder to identify and it will leads to an increase in crime rates. This is obviously because all of the students have to wear the same uniforms and they are able to blend into the student population easier after committing the crime. As the result, witnesses hardly identify the culprit and this…...

The Positive Aspect of Online Reading Far Outwigh the Negative Aspects.

...10/26/2012 The Positive Aspects Of Online Reading Far Outweigh The Negative Aspects. Many people today are suspicious of certain changes the rapid advancement of technology has brought about… especially modern man’s growing dependence on the Internet. This reaction is nothing new historically, for there have been alarmists at every turning point in human progress. In Nicholas Carr’s article, “IS GOOGLE MAKING US STIPID?” the author voices this same fear. He writes, “When we read online…….we tend to become mere decoders of information.” Carr shares this argument with Maryanne Wolf, a psychologist at Tufts University and author of “Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the reading Brain”. Carr’s primary concern is that physical changes to the human brain are caused by heavy use of online technology such as Google. He focuses only on changes to a single aspect of brain function, but these changes may not be even as harmful as he fears. While he did good research, and there is no question about his facts, this paper argues that the positive aspects of online reading far outweigh the negative aspects. Speaking at Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College on September 28, 2012, Nicholas Carr was quick to acknowledge that Google and the Internet have made many positive contributions to modern life. As a vast and readily available source of information, the Internet has greatly benefited education in particular. Carr’s main concern is that the...

Social Networking Negative Impact

...Social networking is a very common way for people of different groups, age, ethnic background to connect together. It is more like a community that belongs to a country called the "internet". Social networking has many negative aspects to it and it should be restricted as it is not safe, causes social problems and health problems. Social networking can be an excellent motivator for people to interact socially because It is safer than meeting random people on the street and can help people who are depressed or deal with other social health problems. Social networking is not safe as it does not protect children, teenagers and adults and they are used and abused through cyberbullying, fake profiles and sexual harassment. Cyberbullying is the use of cell phones, instant messaging, e-mail, chat rooms or social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to harass, threaten or intimidate someone (Rouse Margaret, 2010) . In some cases, cyber bullying can be put to an end from the very beginning if the victim puts a stop to it themselves or by telling a superior. The sad part is that some children get affected by this and end up killing each other and committing suicide due to cyberbullying. "Forty-three percent of teens have been victims of social networking" (Harris Interactive Cyberbullying Research Report, 2006) and shockingly enough "almost 80 percent of teens said that they either did not have parental rules about internet use or found ways around the rules"(Harris...

Medias Negative Effect on Politics

... good. Even though most of the television news stations are owned by wealthy individuals, they should not be biased in any way. The media wants people to see what a perfect world we live in, so they tend to hide the truth or work their way around it. The media undoubtedly has an enormous role in political affairs, but it does play a role in international political affairs as well. The media has its positive and negative effects but politics would not be what it is without the media. Media is widespread and plays so well into peoples’ lifestyles, making it capable of distorting our views in politics. Many people do not look into political candidates, propositions, and views and solely rely on how the media portrays them instead. Commercials, radio ads, news stations, and newspapers are the new source for society to view politics and whom they might be voting for. The media has found its way in today’s politics. Either if its talk shows, television or the internet, they have laid a foundation and built a platform from which to voice their social agenda and expand their political knowledge. Many people today have instant news on their phones or tech gadgets which allows media to expand one’s access to knowledge, but not the desire to do so. Once a person accesses one form of medium on a political issue, it would be as far as they would go for research before moving on to the next topic. The media knows that people tend to fall into a type of sedentary lifestyle and feeds on......

Negative Effects of Social Media

...Social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace allow you to find and connect with just about anyone, from a coworker in a neighboring cube to the girl who played Emily in your high school production of "Our Town" thirty years ago. Browsing these sites can make you feel connected to a larger community, but such easy, casual connection in an electronic environment can also have its downside. A False Sense of Connection According to Cornell University's Steven Strogatz, social media sites can make it more difficult for us to distinguish between the meaningful relationships we foster in the real world, and the numerous casual relationships formed through social media. By focusing so much of our time and psychic energy on these less meaningful relationships, our most important connections, he fears, will weaken. Cyber-bullying The immediacy provided by social media is available to predators as well as friends. Kids especially are vulnerable to the practice of cyber-bullying in which the perpetrators, anonymously or even posing as people their victims trust, terrorize individuals in front of their peers. The devastation of these online attacks can leave deep mental scars. In several well-publicized cases, victims have even been driven to suicide. The anonymity afforded online can bring out dark impulses that might otherwise be suppressed. Cyber-bullying has spread widely among youth, with 42% reporting that they have been victims, according to a 2010 CBS News report...

Negative Effects of Social Media

...Negative Effects of Social Media Although created to allow people to keep in contact, social media is a ticking time bomb that has adverse effects. The negative effects from social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, range from misinformation to arguments and depression. There is nothing that goes unsaid when it comes to online communication. Numerous hot topics are hit every single day leading to resentment, hate and the ending of friendships. False Information The commonality of false information on social media is unreal. Every day I skim through my Facebook feed, I see the most ridiculous things being shared by my friends that are assumed to be true. I can’t help but to subconsciously look down on people who share such things. Users of social media are much too quick to share information without first verifying their sources. It is 2014 and in this day and age, we are only as smart as our ability to use the internet correctly. Establishing the validity of everything shared is something that should be done more often, yet is rarely done at all. There are countless bogus websites, such as The Onion, who post ridiculous articles that prey on the emotions from recent events. Current, trending topics are Robin Williams’ suicide and the case of Michael Brown. People are getting extremely worked up reading false articles that lead to their misguided opinions on topics that aren’t even real. It’s no secret that when emotions and social media mix, fire is ignited...

Effect of Social Media

... functions for negative reinforcement by stopping fighting between parents could develop a lifelong pattern of depressive behavior in the case of conflicts. Two paths that are particularly important are first, the lack or loss of reinforcement because of missing necessary skills at a developmental cusp point or second, the failure to develop adequate rule-governed behavior. For the latter, the child could develop a pattern of always choosing the short-term small immediate reward (i.e., escaping studying for a test) at the expense of the long-term larger reward (passing courses in school). In addition, use of positive reinforcement has been shown to improve the self-concept in children with depression co morbid with learning difficulties. Dunst and Kassow (2004), using B. F. Skinner’s theory on behaviorism, stated that any behavior that is positively reinforced, or rewarded, will repeat itself, especially over time. Second, this repetition, over time, will lead to the desired behavior becoming a habit. What this means in real terms is that an object's behavior over time can be predicted on the basis of its previous experiences. Things that have provided it pleasure will be pursued; things that provide it pain will be avoided. For students in a classroom, for example, positive behavior is encouraged through the promise of rewards. Bad behavior is responded to with negative consequences. The social vision of Skinner was based on the idea that the interests, motivations and...

Social Networks - Negative Impact

...Social Networks - Negative Impact Likes and dislikes are natural responses to the opinions of human beings according to the things that they are observing at the time and personal preferences. Problems occur when these personal preferences move from the realm of opinion into the realm of facts. The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of social networks to discover their potential negative effects on the users and society. The primary focus of this paper being Facebook, one of the biggest names in the industry. Opinion Summary Vanderbilt Photographs are a way to memorialize an event that was meaningful, stupid, or sometimes dangerous. People usually share their most cherished photographs with close friends, family, and significant others. This is no longer the case. With the birth of Facebook and the explosion of social networking, complete strangers are now considered close friends because they liked something on the user’s page, or they are friends of friends (Vanderbilt, ). The sheer weight of this phenomenon has reached beyond the social aspect to the business and legal aspect. It has gotten to the point that businesses now check the Facebook page of potential employees to find out if they are truthful on their applications or to simply find out the kind of person they are outside the interview room. When it comes to the law, Facebook photos are being used as evidence to either prove or disprove an individual's state of mind at the time of the...

Walmart Negative Effect

...Introduction: In 1950, Sam Walton opened Walton’s 5 & 10; a convenience store aimed at providing customers with low cost goods. Unlike other convenience stores of its time, Sam Walton gained a competitive advantage by implementing innovative business models within his operations and finance departments (complex supply chain management and low profit cost-cutting schemes, respectively). Over the next 65 years, Wal-Mart grew to be the largest corporation in the United States with over 5,000 stores and a staggering 1.2 million employees. In fact, Wal-Mart’s staff accounts for 1% of the United State’s working population (Blodget, 2010). Unfortunately, such an enormous presence, combined with negative reviews, has turned Wal-Mart into the country’s most hated retailer of all time (Picchi, 2015). As such, Wal-Mart is constantly investigated, scrutinized, and sued. The following essay analyzes Wal-Mart’s effect on local communities and the corresponding implications the effects may have. In this essay, a community is defined as the combination of local businesses and people surrounding a Wal-Mart store. The analysis is divided into three Parts. Part 1 analyzes Wal-Mart’s effects on local businesses. Part 2 analyzes Wal-Mart’s effects on local populations. Both Part 1 and Part 2 suggest the potential organizational/ethical implications associated with Wal-Mart’s perceived effect. Lastly, Part 3 outlines potential solutions to Wal-Mart’s problems. Part 1: Effect on Local...

Negative Effect of Social Media

...Additional Mental Health ISOLATION The use of messaging and social media messages have become a common occurrence in today’s society. Interaction on a human level has become less frequent in a person’s day-to-day living arrangements. Because of social media websites, interaction with others has become effortless, and people have isolated themselves behind online identities. Direct communication has been eliminated and much of society has been reduced to using abbreviations that express their emotions. Examples of important aspects of communication that are falling by the wayside today include:  Basic verbal communication  Tone of voice  Facial expression  Body language Social media is removing these very human qualities of communication by eliminating the need to get out and socialize with others in person. Sleep Disturbances Evidence also suggests that social media overuse can contribute to sleep disturbances. Studies of Chinese and American children, published in the "Journal of Sleep" and the "Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics," found that computer use among adolescents was associated with later bed times, later waking times, less restful sleep and an overall decrease in sleep. The use of computers before bedtime has also raised concerns among sleep experts, including Phyllis Zee, a neuroscience professor at Northwestern University, that the light from screens is affecting circadian rhythms and...

The Negative Effects of Social Media

...The Negative Effects of Social Media Christine M. Boyd University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Social media is something that has become a part of the lives of millions. Every day we see people constantly posting on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Some think that these media outlets unite people together, but I’m beginning to think the contrary is closer to the truth. It’s common to see multiple people in a room glued to their phones instead of actually engaging with each other. In this paper, I will investigate why people have developed an obsession with social media, how social media creates a false reality, and how social media can be harmful to our mental health. There are a variety of reasons why people have developed an obsession with social media, making it harder to cut ties with it. According to the article Technology Addiction in Adolescents by Vivek Agarwal and Sujit Kumar Kar, “Companies making mobile phones, made them compatible for other technologies like – games, videos, internet browsing and many other applications which facilitate their wide circulation and making them more addicting objects” (pg. 171). When people have constant internet access through their smart phones, it makes it extremely difficult to avoid social media. Smart phones usually vibrate or make a noise when you get a Facebook or Twitter notification, which can increase your likelihood of checking the application. Along with constant internet access, excessive social media use has been...

Professional development opportunities offered to all employees such as presentation skills, content development, business writing, executive speaking, delivering feedback, and management/leadership.

But in the training there are no atittude training so , there are many people that feel smart and creative start to have arrogancy at other who less intelligent.

Negative Effect of Video Games

...THE NEGATIVE EFFECT OF VIDEO GAMES ON CHILDREN Marcos V. Jimenez Comp 172 July 17,2012 Monte Gast THE NEGATIVE EFFECT OF VIDEO GAMES ON CHILDREN The introduction and advancement of technology has provided us with many valuable tools and resources; however, it also has the capability of negatively influencing our younger generations. It is our responsibility as parents to provide them with guidance and direction in choosing the correct technological learning tools, and managing the amount of time spent in front of video games. Although video games offer a broad array of opportunities for teaching and learning, there are equally as many games focused on violence and inappropriate behaviors. Children are easily influenced in today's society through what they see and hear, making video games a prime resource for how they are influenced. VIOLENCE Many of today's video games, especially suitable for young boys, focus their attention on violent acts, and whether it be through weapons, verbal abuse, or fighting. Young minds are easily molded through the violence in these games, leading them to believe that weapons and fighting are standard in today's society. In order to instill the most positive values in these young boys, parental guidance is necessary in controlling the video games to which children are exposed. Helping them to distinguish between reality and video games is a key responsibility of parents and guardians. INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR Most often going hand...
