Every person has the freedom of speech. Every person has the freedom to roam, the right to access publically owned land. Every person has the basic right of freedom from discrimination regardless of race, religion or culture. You have the right to all of these things. However, in recent years, as a resident of the Cronulla Beaches, these rights have become threatened. I’d like to welcome you to emergency town hall meeting tonight. As the mayor of Cronulla, it is with great regret that it could not be on more pleasant terms, but in light of the recent gang warfare, having together watched this documentary, Bra Boys, and been witness to lies, deception and manipulation of facts presented to audiences,...

But what we are dealing with today is their actions in the present. Bashings, stabbings, gang warfare, shootings and illegal drug dealings are the decisions of grown men. They take no responsibility for their actions, but blame it on their past. While some boys may have suffered unconventional upbringings, this is no excuse to turn this back upon society.

So obviously, we all know that before this documentary was released, the Bra Boys already held a strong reputation as a notorious gang, known for their violence and brutality in the community. Understandably, audiences’ trust wasn’t an automatic given. So what did Abberton do? He brought in Russell Crowe; Academy award winning, well known Australian actor. While his famish and familiar voice may be thought of as trustworthy and believable by audiences, let me remind you that Crowe not only known for his acting, but also his fiery temper and aggressive behavior. In fact, in 2005 Crowe faced second degree assault charges in New York for assaulting a fellow colleague. Essentially, it is unsurprising that Crowe supports the Bra Boys! He too has been involved in his fair share of violence and aggressive conduct. Narration of this documentary by a popular Australian icon positions viewers to believe and trust what they are hearing, but in reality, audiences are once again subject to the voice of another bias and violent person.

It doesn’t stop here though. Throughout the documentary, audiences are inaccurately led to believe that any incidences involving violence or ...

    Antibiotic Abuse In Animal Agriculture: Exacerbating Drug Resistance In Human Pathogens

    6658 words, 27 pages

    Abstract (Summary) Most of the antibiotics produced in the U.S. are fed to farm animals routinely as "growth promoters," and to facilitate "factory farming." Unfortunately, this places selective pressure on bacteria to develop antibiotic-resistance. Genes that neutralize antibiotics wind up protecting disease-causing germs. We have seen a tremendous increase in antibiotic-resistance in common food poisoning bacteria like Salmonella, but the problem is even worse than food-borne diseases. Bacteria also can rapidly transfer and spread antibiotic-resistance to other bacterial species. Therefore,

    The Underachievement Of Girls

    “Girls significantly achieve higher than boys in English SAT’s in key stage 2.” Factors behind this.

Since the 1960s it was shown that gender inequality impacted on education attainment. Due to society disparity, boys and girls were treated differently within schools, classrooms by teachers, parents and peers. But later on in the 1970s and 80s feminist started to ques

    Boys Perform Less Well At School Than Girls

    2634 words, 11 pages

    Boys have for some time been significantly behind girl’s level of achievement in schools. The average gap in gender was at a 9.6% difference in 2006, with the smallest gender gap (5% or less) found in Maths and Science (DCSF, 2006). Schools attempted to tackle the differences between boys and girls levels of attainment. In the 1970’s and 1980's the concerns for the welfare of learning were directed at girls; who had been falling short of boy’s attainment levels. Many factors appear to account for this lag in achievement – a major factor may have been the representati

    Biological Sciences Initiative HHMI Student Activities Measuring Antibiotic Resistance (Kirby-Bauer) Introduction: You might be aware that antibiotics were once thought of as a “magic bullet;” a nearly perfect drug for combating bacteria. We should have known that things are never that simple. If we use the three domains model for classification (bacteria, archea, and eucarya), then there are more than a dozen different kingdoms of Bacteria. Thinking this way, we readily see that bacteria are too diverse for any one drug to kill them all. Some antibiotics come cl

The two boys sat down, and when they did they spotted som
