. The Migration Act of 1958 allows for entry to Australia without a visa for the purpose of seeking asylum. Australian policies are putting asylum seekers at risk and this will not stop people from coming on boats. Australian political parties should put refugees' rights to protection at the forefront of humanitarian policies, rather than focusing on offshore processing in places like Nauru and Malaysia. On behalf of the Hazara community, I beg the Australian Government to stop the political games, and establish an effective policy in which refugees/asylum seekers are seen as human beings. I ask the government to increase its humanitarian intake of refugees, especially when the numbers are so

companies to achieve their potential in a developing economy. A strong brand name can help in leveraging the new products that belong to that brand. Diversification strategy can help a company in spreading their customer base. It also helps in enhancing the product portfolio of the company by introducing complimenting products in the market. (Investments, 2010) However, if internal management and personnel issues are not taken into consideration in view of a merger or acquisition, the whole diversification could end disastrously. When considering the possibility of acquiring a new company, one needs to ensure that the people at the managerial level are well-versed with the process that needs to

Physical education helps students develop good eating and workout habits. If physical education were taken away, where else would people learn about nutrition and about their metabolism? If P.E. was not a part of the curriculum, no one would take the time to investigate what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle. Equipped with this knowledge, many students inculcate healthy eating habits, by giving up high sugar and fast foods and replacing them with healthy foods like fruits, vegetables and nuts. Overall, P.E. can help nurture habits that will reduce serious health risks and in turn P.E. can also make people’s lives happier in the long run.

Although cities remain segregated by race, African-Americans and other population of different colors are increasingly.

pushing to stop underage drinking. Awareness is being publicized in many ways. Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) are exposing driving drunk reports to bring more awareness to everyone from different ages, and hopefully reduce drunk driving and change the drinking age (Denise Dubyk, 2011). Nonetheless, the media and some activist groups, government agencies and foundations constantly promote the idea that most teen drinking is extremely risky and carries a high probability of causing alcoholism or death. Either way, the fact that the vast majority of youth are drinking regularly long before it is legal to do so suggests that current policy is a failure at its intended goal of keeping alcohol out of the hands of most of young people (Larry Hemelin, 2009).
