While, the medium house household was about $41,000 majority of teens who excessively drank was above the poverty level. In addition, $750 million in hospitalization each year and over 1 billion U.S dollars in accident related alcohol use. To put things in perspective 1 out of every 4 underage drinker has a DUI and whites have a much higher rate of accident related fatalities than hispanic and blacks. $505 million have been the result of assault regarding underage drinking and of that amount $416 million were due to domestic violence. However, majority of the $200 billion in underage drinking stems from loss of work or school
The purpose of this was twofold: if these programs negatively impacted unit cohesion or resulted in the loss of government property - to include Marines’ lives - they could deflect responsibility back onto the politicians who insisted on expanding women’s roles in the Marine Corps. However, if these social experiments succeeded, the Marine Corps would acknowledge that the majority of its forces were in fact capable of participating in combat, thus gaining the ability to reassign any Marine, regardless of gender or original specialty, to a combat position. While the programs were considered a mixed success, they again dredged up the barely concealed distaste and distrust that many male Marines, especially infantry Marines, possessed for female Marines. Men, long seen as the protectors of society, have not taken the intrusion of women into the Marine Corps well. The prevailing attitude insists that existing behavioral generalizations are in place because they embody the archetype best suited for specific kinds of work: men are the protectors and defenders, and must be aggressive and competitive, while women are best suited for roles that require compassion and cooperation.
Both British and American armies were looking for young women to work for them as nurses, cooks, and maids (“American Revolution”). This almost unrestricted access to the camp granted many women from the opposing side the chance to join the men as seemingly patriotic women doing their part for the country, while inconspicuously working as spies. Females were considered innocent and non-threatening, and not intelligent enough to understand military strategy. This caused few generals to look deep into these women’s backgrounds even though they were using women in espionage work for their own armies (“American Revolution”). Some women would even spy for both armies at once.
Women have numerous roles in this Revolutionary War. Despite the fact that women are not permitted to join the military, several women are still serving as secret soldiers amid the Revolutionary War. The absolute most usual roles for women in the Revolutionary War are laundresses, housekeepers, cooks, water bearers, and seamstresses for the armed force. Several women additionally are serving as spies in the American Revolution. As medical attendants, house keepers, soldiers or spies, these women are risking their lives to serve the nation.
A comparison of rates of diagnosis of diabetes mellitus by ethnicity and race disclosed that in 2010 the AAs diagnosed for diabetes were 13.2% of 29.1 million Americans (ADA, 2014). AA adults have the highest mortality rate from DM in individuals less than seventy years of age than other ethnic groups (Tancredi, et al., 2015). In 2010, diabetes mellitus has caused the deaths of 69,071 people in the United States with total percentage deaths of all males (48.2%) and females (51.4%). In 2013, their mortality rate accounted for 21.2 deaths per 100,000 populations (CDC, 2015). This alarming statistics have proven that AA adults at risk for T2DM are in a greater need for EB interventions that will be championed by the advanced practice nurses
Further highlighting the significance of a male developing a mood disorder is substance abuse prevalence statistics. Here males lead by over a 10% margin with males having a 41.8% lifetime prevalence of substance abuse. This is in comparison to a 29.6% for females . Comparing males’ lifetime prevalence of mood disorders to substance abuse disorder there is over a 20% difference with substance abuse being more prevalent. However, Jebera is in the minority for his gender developing a mood disorder instead of a different
Though this impressive number is only about fifteen percent of the total active-duty force, the amount of women serving continues to rise. Women continue to disprove the stereotype that they are too “frail and delicate” to serve in the armed forces. Equality means equal rights and equal responsibilities, and if a woman can meet the same requirements mandatory for men to join the armed forces, she should be eligible for the draft. Even if the majority of citizens able to meet the requirements is still men, this would be fair as it gives all women the opportunity to attempt, and those who do meet the requirements will be able to serve their country in a time of
“...the American army often recruited the many female camp followers to fill these jobs” (Brooks 2013, para. 17). They had slowly began to achieve recognition in society, especially war. It was then, that woman had begun to silently “protest” on having the same equal opportunity as men. During the war, women created a role for themselves to side amongst the male soldiers: a secret soldier.
Exotic and rare monkeys like the finger monkeys should be illegal in all the states of the U.S because they are expensive, hard to take care of, and a time consuming animal to take care of. Firstly, finger monkeys are legal in some states in the U.S but it would be better if they weren’t legal in the U.S because these monkeys are hard to take care of. Secondly, finger monkeys shouldn’t be legal because most beginning owners would probably buy one just for fun if they had a lot of money but when the monkey starts acting crazy, most people wouldn’t want it anymore and sell it. These people apparently don’t know lots about this monkey and if you take care of it correctly, it would obviously die. These monkeys aren’t really so common that you
Cleats cost 110$. Salaries is averaged to about 80000$ and you need over 30 people per team, and managers and head coaches and transportation puts this at around 3 million per year, and 2.7 every year after that. That 's crazy. As you can see, if women want to play football we should have a fnfl for females as there is a women 's World Cup, it is what we have done in the past and it would help us a lot as the injuries would go down and it would be less
Preventing obesity in older adults in America. Obesity is a disorder involving excessive body that increases the risk of health problems. Obesity is known to be a big problem not only in North Carolina, but in America, that continues to grow each and everyday. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), "A person is obese when their body mass is 30 percent of greater"(pp.2).

Army Captain Meredith Mathis, who offered cultural support to the US military in Afghanistan stated, “she has seen as much, if not more combat than a lot of infantry soldiers, what’s more, women secured valuable intelligence speaking with Afghan women who wouldn 't talk with the American men” (Michaels, 2015). This reveals that female soldiers on the front line could be considered very useful in cultures where women are considered the silent ones. According to allgov.com, “more than 800 female service members have been wounded in either Afghanistan or Iraq, and at least 139 have died from combat and non-combat-related incidents” (Wallechinsky & Brinkerhoff, 2012). For over a decade, women have already served boots on the ground, in combat roles, it is time for those women who have been injured or who have sacrificed their lives to be validated and for a woman’s abilities in combat to be acknowledged and
Although exposure to violence affects all SES groups, lower SES individuals and families appear to have increased exposure. Browne, Salomon, & Bassuk (1999) found that women who resided in households that earned less than $10,000 annually had a 4-times-greater risk of experiencing violence than women in wealthier households. Bassuk et al. (1996) found that homeless mothers reported significantly more severe instances of physical and sexual assault over their lifetime than low-income housed mothers. Buka, Stichick, Birdthistle, & Felton, (2001) found youths from low-income neighborhoods witnessed significantly more severe violence (viz., murders and stabbings) than youths from middle- and upper-income neighborhoods.
