Publications such as "Adon" in 1980 and "Fabulous" in 1990, which tried to focus more on holebi-politics and lifestyle, had no success and no longer exist. However, there is a great tradition of "minikomi" (small communication) used by holebi-groups in which social affairs are written. With the advent of the internet in the late 1980s, the number of "minikomi" has grown immensely. There are also many publications which are intended for the Japanese transgender community. Although there were different newsletters for male transgenders from the 1950s, the first commercial magazine for transgenders "Queen" was not published untill 1981 onwards.
I believe the first time I read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby was when I was in high school. The novel was never assigned or studied in any of my English classes and so, out of sheer curiosity because I knew it was considered a literary masterpiece, I decided to read it for my own pleasure. The only information I had about Gatsby was that it was set during the 1920s and that it was an American classic. However, since it is a fairly short novel, my reading was extremely quick and seemed to not have any lasting impression on me. In fact, years later when I tried to recall the events of the story I realized that I could hardly remember anything about it.
Throughout history, there have been many examples where groups of people have been denied their human rights. Individuals, groups, and governments have attempted to end many of these human rights violations although they have not always been successful. One event from history that can immediately be dissected from many other events that stripped humans of their basic rights is the deadly and horrible Holocaust which mainly took place in Germany during World War II and discriminated against the Jewish population. The German dictator at the time of WW2, Adolf Hitler, hated Jews and believed they were the reason for all the bad things happening to Germany such as the bad economy and the loss in WW1. The circumstances that led up to the Holocaust was the Treaty of Versailles after the Germans lost in WW1.
Since every job that comes available is advertised on the company bulletin board first, and external hiring is only done for entry level positions, there were very few opportunities for minorities to get hired. Because Lincoln accepted US government contracts, they were audited in regard to minority hiring. In 2014 Lincoln agreed to pay $1 million dollars to settle out of court. Lincoln also agreed to increase the hiring of qualified minorities. Perhaps the reason there are so few jobs to fill is that there have been no layoff at Lincoln since 1949.
Their lives have been shaped by the government so much that the effects of the past actions made by the whites have become substantially irreversible, forcing the Native American population to suffer and make sacrificing choices in order to live in the present world. Moreover, Sherman Alexie, a fellow Native American and author of the novel The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, is able to show through his depiction of Indian societies not only the problems being faced by Indians nowadays, but problems being faced through the eyes of a teenage boy. The novel has its main character, Arnold Spirit, suffering through poverty and the already stated problems in his reservation, the Wellpinit reservation, and feels the obligation of making a change regarding his own life.

They failed to comprehend timely, how the mobile phone started evolving promptly from a voice device into a data one. Secondly, the company focused on cost saving and had only one supplier for their major parts. In 1999 a fire in a Phillips factory in Mexico disrupted the supply chain of Ericsson and its then main competitor Nokia. Ericsson was slow to react to this misfortune, which resulted in serious production delay. Conversely, Nokia had kept several suppliers despite the potential cost disadvantage and could reorganize their supply chain quickly.
When the state exam finally came it was nothing relevant to all that we had studied the entire year. From that point on I felt that English classes were a waste of time, and I was no good at them. When the results from the state test came, I received a score of 43% on the reading portion and the lowest possible score on the writing portion. I no longer felt that I was no good at English, I knew I was not. Luckily, I passed my 9th grade English class and was able to advance to English 2.

If we contemplate a time when the internet would not have any effect on literature, it would be inconceivable .Today’s modern technology and advancements have affected the literature of the era. Although Internet is not the most dependable source of reading; it is by far the most easy and user-friendly approach to the material we have thirst for. As of 2015, the year’s data show a slight decline in the number of American adults who read print books: 63% of American adults say they read at least one book in print in the past year, compared with 69% who said the same the year before and 71% in 2011.
