student at the University of Nevada. Westfall pertains to the Physical Attractiveness Stereotype, used by psychologists to describe the assumption that good-looking people have socially desirable traits. For years, humans have been subjected to the biased thinking caused by physical attractiveness, especially in selecting a partner. According to Rohner and Rasmussen in 2012, individuals who are more attractiveness tend to be treated better, compared to unattractive counterparts. In the study by Westfall and colleagues, they examined how physical attractiveness influences the belief of fairness in life.
"Quality of Working Life" (QWL) is a term that had been used to describe the broader job-related experience an individual has. The modern version is probably best expressed in the terms of quality of work life.

For example, women are expected to be thin and graceful and to dress and groom in ways that are stereotypical to women, like wearing dresses and makeup. For example, a study on self-perceptions of physical appearance “indicated that women considered all components of appearance except height to be more important than did men and were more interested in changing their appearance than were men.” (Gender, Gender Role, and Physical Appearance). This shows how women are typically more insecure about how they look and if they fit their stereotypical look that society has created for them or not. On the other hand, men are expected to be tall and muscular. However, in the same research, it stated that “few physical attributes distinguished among the male gender-role groups.” (Gender, Gender Role, and Physical Appearance).
3.1 LITERATURE ON ERGONOMICS As a systematic discipline, Fernandez (1995) has defined Ergonomics as the scheme to design the workplace, equipment, machine, tool, product, environment, and system taking into account the human’s physical, psychological, biomechanical and psychological capabilities, and optimizing the effectiveness and productivity of work systems by ensuring the safety, health, and well-being of workers. Yet another simple definition of Wilson (1995) provides that ergonomics is the practice of learning human characteristics and utilizing that information to improve people’s interaction with the environments. Quite a few research studies tell about the influence of physical working conditions on job situation.
Ergonomics usually are known to be related to human and their job. In larger scope ergonomics examines psychological, and physiological capabilities, limitations and human behavioral. The professionals in the field of ergonomics normally will design new work environments or adjust established work environments based on the studies on the human capabilities and limitation (N. Jaffar et al, 2011). N.Jaffar et al (2011) also stated that ergonomics is a broad science with wide variety of working conditions that can affect worker’s comfort and health. These including the factors such as repetitive motion, workstation design, lighting, noise, temperature, vibration, heavy lifting, tool design, machine design, chair design and footwear and others.
To what extent do modern beauty advertisements set a standard of beauty and what impact does this have on adolescent body image? Introduction It is noticeable how sociocultural standards of beauty have been established through many forms of popular media for many decades. The media portrays the “ideal body” by having models with high beauty standards that are unrealistic and unattainable for many people. Moreover, with the improvement of technology, many figures displayed on television and advertisements are “adjusted” to look more appealing and attractive. In many cases, these figures used in modern beauty advertisements send an implicit message to many people that in order for them to be considered beautiful, they must have attractive features to make them look a certain way.
Introduction Ergonomics focus on evaluating the fit between the work environment and the worker with a goal of adapting the environment to reduce health risks, and to increase safety and performance (Mani et. al, 2016 & Robertson, Huang & Lee 2017). The Ergonomics Risk Factors (ERF) are situations that contribute against the principles of ergonomics which may cause harm to the health and well-being of workers (Jaffar et. al 2011). In line with ergonomics, Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSDs) is common and the prevalence of symptoms is rising among office workers with intensive computer use (Robertson, et al 2012).
For a long time, human has asked the question which personal attributes are more compelling, A person physical appearance or one's inner beauty? This question alone has created many opinions or ideas of what we see as beautiful in a person's.

These days, there are many trends when it comes to physical appearance, and these trends are followed by the majority of the people in society and they sometimes extend outside of one’s own. From clothes to make-up, the fashion and physicality that is mostly looked upon is the way one’s hair is styled. The hair, the “crowning glory” as some may call it, is said to be the very first thing that is noticed and seen of an individual unconsciously or not. The hair on one’s head is one of the most public bodily commodities, visible and open to interpretation by others at a first or second’s glance. This is equally true for men and women in view of the fact that people are often evaluated based on their appearance.
