Pinker argues that men have both a superior inbuilt aptitude for STEM and a greater affinity for STEM-favoring motivations, whereas Spelke maintains that the operative force in keeping women out of STEM is societal discrimination. It is also worth noting that neither scholar claims absolute accuracy over this debate. More precisely, Pinker concedes that social discrimination may be a factor at play in the STEM disparity, and Spelke recognizes that genetic differences exist between the sexes. To comprehensively and straightforwardly address all salient points in this debate, I will consider the intrinsic aptitude and motivational differences debates
Socratic Dialogue The following conversation is one that takes place between Socrates and a Psychologist who believes that males are superior to women. John: It is quite unfortunate that we have tunnel vision when trying to achieve an egalitarian society in regards to males and females. Socrates: Before tackling your initial proposition, may I ask how you differentiate between male and female. John: While there is a biopsychological aspect to it, I strongly believe that the biological properties are what hold the greater weight in this multifaceted construct. For me the genetic and hormonal differences in the makeup of men and women are a significant component which leads to inherent differences between the two.
Stereotypes dealing with gender like the one promoted by David Brooks and studied by other authors are created through the influence popular media has on society in order to manipulate people to think a certain way and create conflict. David Brooks’ assertion that women are better students than men is not only incorrect , but also exceedingly dangerous. Of course, any statement that attaches an offensive stereotype to half of the human population and is reinforced by the pervasive influence of the popular media can 't be a good thing. To back this claim, the author provides evidence such as, "[Girls] are less likely to be diagnosed with a learning disability" or "Kindergarten teachers rebport that girls are more attentive than boys and are more persistent at tasks". To be less likely to have a genetic disorder doesn 't turn you into a better student, nor does your personal
Causes The following conditions can lead to heart failure, but many people are unaware that they have them: Coronary artery disease is the most common cause of heart failure. It causes constriction of arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle. A previous heart attack can be separated from the scar tissue that interferes with the normal pump ability of the heart muscle. High blood pressure (also called hypertension) allows the heart to work harder than blood circulation around the body. Heart valve disease caused by rheumatic fever or other infections in the past will force your heart to work harder to maintain blood flow; Over time, this extra work weakens the heart.
If the heart is slightly enlarged, it can and should still work alright, but if it becomes greatly enlarged it won't work alright. High blood pressure can also cause damage to the arteries which can lead to arterial disease. The higher the blood pressure is the more risk you have of acquiring heart disease and stroke. This means somebody with a blood pressure of 130/80 mmHg is at greater risk than someone with a blood pressure of 120/70 mmHg. And is the reason it is so important for all to lead a wholesome lifestyle to make sure their blood pressure is as low and as healthy as it can be.
“This kind of busy work, by its very nature, discourages learning, and instead promotes doing homework to simply get points.” - a Stanford researcher (Parker “Stanford Research Shows Pitfalls of Homework”). At schools all around America students are receiving up to three times the amount of homework they should be receiving (“Kids have three times too much homework, study finds; what 's the cost?”) and it 's causing many different issues. While other people say the amount of homework is fine, and it helps students practice, and it also allows parents to know what students are doing at school. They are wrong students all around America are receiving excessive amounts of homework and it needs to be changed because students are stressed and receiving
This means the chances of getting heart disease can increase rapidly. People of lower socioeconomic status have higher risk factors for heart disease because of stress, poor lifestyle choices, and lack of health care information. Everyone experiences stress, whether it is from school, work, or day to day life, stress can consume anyone. The problem with stress is that if it is not managed appropriately it can contribute to many factors which will lead to heart disease. According to the American Heart Association Ernesto L. Schiffrin, M.D.
Stress can make you breathe harder. That's not a problem for most people, but for those with asthma or a lung disease such as emphysema, getting the oxygen you need to breathe easier can be difficult. Chronic stress, or a constant stress experienced over a prolonged period of time, can contribute to long-term problems for heart and blood vessels. The consistent and ongoing increase in heart rate, and the elevated levels of stress hormones and of blood pressure, can take a toll on the body. This long-term ongoing stress can increase the risk for hypertension, heart attack or
By imbuing the ‘male’ body with feminine beauty and sensibilities, the “bishōnen can be read as a figure of resistance: both to the notion that biology is destiny and to the correlation between biology and gender role”. Through its problematizing of social concepts such as ‘masculinity’ and ‘femininity’, as well as the gender binary itself, the foundations upon which the patriarchal society is built on are questioned. In addition, the androgyny of bishōnen characters also allow female readers to see them “not just as ideal lovers or partners, but in a sense as their ideal selves”. The BL manga thus, in its depiction of feminine boys, allow women to “picture [themselves] as separate from the sexist roles assigned to [them] by the family system” and indulge in the fantasy of loving a man “as an equal, free of predefined gender
Workers engaged in social project services have long been recognized as having an increased risk of burnout, which has been known to have negative consequences for the individual and their customers and the system they serve. Demographic factors (ie, age, years of service, level of education, departmental affiliation) and personality factors (adjustment, ambition, interpersonal sensitivity, orientation role, stress tolerance, and reliability) were examined for their relationship with burnout, as measured by the three subscales (emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and personal fulfillment) Census Maslach Burnout – Human Services Survey (MBI-HSS). The results showed that the sample experienced officer’s significantly higher rates of burnout from these sampling officers in norming body, indicating a very high level of burnout within the sample population. Correlations were found between age and years of service, and interpersonal sensitivity workers’ and perceive the meaning of personal fulfillment. However, there are no relationships were found between burnout and other demographics (years of service, level of education, departmental affiliation) and personality variables (Adaptation, ambition, orientation role, stress tolerance, and reliability)
The professor in the document refers to this as feminine values hypothesis (Gender roles). Women being brought up are supposed to be more caring, emotional, and attentive to living things. Boys are brought up to be competitive and aggressive. With this, women as adults would weigh the consequences on the environmental impact nuclear energy has compared to men, thus opposing it. The gender roles men and women have affect their view towards nuclear energy as well.
