With the emergence of the global marketplace, cross-cultural differences are increasingly recognized as a key factor in successful marketing strategies (Lee & Harada, 2000). Prior studies conducted within various contexts have observed that tourist behavior is affected by cultural background (Chen, 2000; Crotts & Erdmann, 2000; Litvin, Crotts, & Hefner, 2004; Litvin & Kar, 2003). For example, cross-cultural differences have been found to affect the use of external information sources by Japanese, South Korean and Australian tourists traveling to the USA (Chen, 2000); the behavior of German and Japanese tourists traveling to the USA (Litvin et al., 2004); self-image in travelers departing from Singapore (Litvin & Kar, 2003); and the evaluation of travel services within the USA (Crotts & Erdmann, 2000). Furthermore, different ethnic and/or racial groups vary in their leisure preferences and behaviors due to different constraints and affordances, as illustrated in numerous studies (e.g., Philipp, 1995; Shinew, Floyd, & Parry, 2004; Stodolska, 1998). For instance, Philipp found African-Americans to be less comfortable in certain activities, such as golf, skiing and hunting, than white Americans.
Medved 's(2004) article, "That 's Entertainment: Hollywood 's Contribution to Anti-Americanism Abroad," discusses American films and its link to Anti-Americanism. He argues that the inaccurate portrayal of the American culture in Hollywood films has contributed to anti-American attitudes around many countries in the world. He believes that a primary factor behind this issue is that the media broadcasted to other countries do not accurately show the real culture and values of America. Instead the media portrays an exaggeration of the American culture through shows like Sex and the City that go on to show an America that is overdramatized with sexual relationships. He backs his argument through a very credible source, which was an analysis, conducted in Washington DC at the Center of Media and Public Affairs.
This chapter is divided into three aspects or framework they are; the conceptual framework, the theoretical framework and the empirical framework. The conceptual framework contains a detailed description of substance use/abuse, coping ability and religiosity. The theoretical framework on the other hand includes theories relating to the study i.e. theories relating to the concepts mentioned above (substance use/misuse, coping ability, and religiosity), involves application of relevant theories to the above mentioned concept. Lastly the empirical framework examines previous works, studies, articles and researches carried out by various scholars on substance use/misuse, coping ability, and religiosity.
Provided that discourse analysis is subjective, and by the same token by adherence to pragmatic theories , the truth is also subjective and relative; hence, this study has adopted a new approach to research analysis. There have been many contributions to the political discourse of the media (see: Wood & Kroger, 2000); however, the subjectivity of the frameworks and also the liberty to apply less appropriate models leads to diversity and sometimes inconsistency in the results. Given all that, this study has employed a cluster of methodologies in an endeavor to present the most reliable findings. Discourse analysis is an interdisciplinary discipline. It is also interested in the analysis of the various contexts of discourse, that is, in the cognitive processes of production and reception and in the sociocultural dimensions of language use and communication.
Everyday technology is a factor that is considered when making a decision, whether it is from news articles or perceiving technology as another living being.

In the article, "The Mega-Marketing of Depression in Japan," by: Ethan Watters, shows the effects social media has on the people of Japan. Watters describes how culture is changing and could be making people change their judgement on their own culture. In the article, "Selections from Alone Together," by: Sherry Turkle, the technological movement is beginning to take over the present-day millennials.
From my research question, three main topics are presented: dehumanization, disinhibition in warfare and drone strikes. These topics have been covered in various discourses. By referring to the existing scholarship on these topics, I will introduce key concepts and theories which have been used, that may be helpful in my own research. By assessing the strengths and weaknesses, and highlighting areas of disagreement and consensus, I will be able to identify gaps in the discourse and place my own research into the discourse. My literature was selected based on the three key components in my research question.
The mass incarceration of the mentally ill can be reduced by reverting to institutionalization Researchers and activists alike are concerned about the rate at which individuals with mental illness are incarcerated in the United States. Many consider that the increase in incarceration is a direct result of deinstitutionalization. In this essay, I will discuss how the solutions to the prevention of the incarceration of the mentally ill but ultimately lead to the common goal of improving the care of the mentally ill. This will be done by comparing and contrasting the key points of Knoll, Etter et al and Kincaid. The points discussed will be their views on the cause of mass incarceration, the way in which they approach solutions to the problem and the suggested role of law enforcement officers in this solution.
Sub2: media influences families to accept the gender roles that have been establised by previous generation. Especially children tend to see stereotypical roles in advertising. Stereotypical gender roles can be generally featured in tv shows movies and commercials which bring up people to understand gender role values from the before generation. Also, men tend to dominate lead roles in movies and advertising. A high presence of media can increase the chances that a couple will get divorced.
The importance of religion in people’s belief systems can be glimpsed in the many highly respected religious clerics and figureheads that assume much authority within their religious circles due to their central position in these local and even national religious networks. For instance, Mariano ‘Mike’ Zuniega Velarde, better known as Bro. Mike, is a well-known televangelist and founder of a Philippines based Catholic Charismatic religious group called El Shaddai. Based in Philippines, it has an estimated following of three to seven million. Physical manifestations of the importance and practice of religion can be seen not just in built places of worship e.g.
