Of Mice and Men is a novel known across the globe, its delicate tone and emphasis on humanity and the struggles of the world locks the readers in. What dazzles readers most about this folk classic is how it is expressed in a way that all can understand, but few comprehend the deep and dark turn of events that lie between the lines of the book at first glance.

The main issue discussed in this masterpiece is inequality, this subject applies to not only those of the past, but to everyone in every circumstance across the world today. Although it’s the 21st century, this issue is still present in everyday life. Wealth, race, gender, and mental illness has torn society apart and lead to inequality.

Inequality, by definition is the difference in size, degree, circumstances and lack of one. Income and wealth inequality is currently a major phenomenon affecting the lives of many, including Australians. We aussies love to relish on our beliefs, specifically by perceiving our nation as egalitarian. We’ve deemed our country as an income and wealth friendly country, in which everyone receives suitable amounts of income/wealth depending on their occupations. However, all of these remarks are not necessarily correct and in this feature article I will aim to identify, illuminate and discover the current issues of inequality in income and wealth within Australia.
The Farm Service Agency was formed to support farmers in times of need by offering loans, payments, and disaster relief programs. Because the risks that can come with growing food depend on the economy, food preferences and acts of nature, the government felt it was necessary to protect the people and operations that provide food for Americans. The controversies that have arisen in the last few decades regarding the FSA center on the way the assistance has been distributed and the fact that Americans now import much of their foodstuffs.
My stomach grumbled repeatedly. I hadn’t eaten for a while, but I was used to it. Being that I only got a little bit of food and water for breakfast, I was trained to ration out my portions for the week. The hunger wasn’t something new, but this time it was a tremendous amount of pain in my stomach. I thought to myself how could being hungry make my stomach hurt so much. I overheard my parents constantly arguing about food, but I never truly understood how difficult it was. Whenever my parents called my brothers and sisters and I to come in and get food, I always saw the look my parents had on their face after we had gotten whatever food there was and they had nothing. Most of the time, all of us had nothing to eat and whenever my parents did
Philippines and Canada are two different economic spectrum. The former has historically struggled with poverty from the period of colonization to today’s rapid globalization with poverty incidence of 21.6% as of 2014 (PSA, 2016). Canada, on the other hand, has 9.7% rate of low income but majority of those are transitory. From 2005-2010, only 1.5% are considered in persistent low income (Statistics Canada, 2015 as cited by Lamman, & McIntyre, 2016). Beyond these numbers, there remains a grim reality that faced citizens within the poverty thresholds from both nations. Though the effect is relative to both, neoliberalism threatens the social fabric and accelerating poverty by depoliticizing (Ferguson, 2005 as cited in Sims, 2015) and producing
as well as less crucial topics such as broadband speed. Spanning 26 pages, they cover all their bases. In order to reach a level of fair judgement, each topic’s scale pertains to the accepted rate in that area. For example, in the Children Living in Poverty paragraph, the authors base their findings off of UNICEF’s definition of poverty: (“living in a household that earns less than 50% of the national median.“) Appearing throughout is a comparison from today’s less-than-desireable numbers and those from previous days, many frequenting more than 40 years in the past. In each scenario, America seems to be detaching itself from the high rankings of
Does it ever appear to you as if people live their lives trying to attain happiness? The decisions people make every day seem to revolve around what will make them the happiest. No one knows the true meaning of happiness but we all want to have it. Many people try to attain happiness through actions or things. Some people buy everything that they want to try and make themselves happy. Others go through great lengths such as stealing, lying, and even murder hoping to be happy. Since we are all paying lots and working hard to get our college degree, will be happier when we our degree? Does having a college degree make you a happier person? Not a better question can be asked to a college student going through these extreme lengths to get a degree. Will this really bring us happiness or is happiness a choice?
With respect to the theoretical approaches to food security, there are three theories developed in 1970s and 1980s as cause to food insecurity. The first one is Climate theory; this theory explains food insecurity as caused by climatic phenomena. Cox, related this theory with the concept of “famine belt” in which he directly links climate condition to food insecurity. This theory argued that in the national or local level, climate linked phenomena such as drought, floods and others are a major factor causing food insecurity (Cox, 1981, cited in Steven Engler,
The continuous increasing demand for the food requires the rapid improvement in food production technology. In a country like Ethiopia, the economy is mainly based on agriculture and the climate conditions are isotropic, still we are not able to make full usage of agricultural resources. The main reason is the lack of rains and scarcity of the land reservoir water in some areas of the country.

Mainly the developing countries like: Nepal, Bhutan, Sri-Lanka, Bangladesh with some developed countries like China and India has facing poverty.
