Protection Against Identity Theft
Identity theft is a crime that can easily ruin one’s life and cause extreme suffering and loss. Criminals have been using other people’s identity since the beginning of time to commit crimes, achieve financial gain, and for many other illegal purposes. Since the rise in the popularity of the Internet, identity theft has also been on the rise. “Approximately 15 million United States residents have their identities used fraudulently each year with financial losses totaling upwards of $50 billion.” (Douglas, 2012) By securing someone else’s personally identifiable information (PII), a criminal with enough knowledge about the Internet could illegally

How Does Physicality Affect Identity?
Human being is used to develop his identity by seeing what brings him closer and make him different from his fellows, the society and his family. The identity is the recognition of what we are, by itself or by the others of the society. A big part of their identity results from their outside appearance which, during the adolescence, sets a lot of importance. It is necessary to say that during this period, the body is largely transformed. Generally, with this transformation also comes a redefining of the person. Who is this new reflection in front of me?

Should Schools Establish Dress Codes?
Should Schools establish dress codes?
There is much of controversy and debate surrounding the issue of dress code in schools. While some individuals argue that dress code is necessary and should be introduced, others strongly differ regarding the issue. My opinion is that dress code should not be established in schools because it limits students in terms of expressing their personality, self-identity, and non-verbal communication skills.

In this society, people will always have labels on themselves, which will define their personality, their status and their identity. The labels are indispensable and play significant roles in people’s life. Without such labels, they will not define themselves accurately, the words will be explained wrong and their true self will be revealed.

The claim by Mbembe that African identity doesn’t exist as a substance is valid to a greater extent when we take into consideration that African has multiple ancestries. Mbembe criticize African scholarship where somehow they isolate Africa from the world by putting Africa as the place for blacks who share a common identity. This assertion set obstacles to moving forward and engaging with the African history. For Mbembe identity is a substance constituted through a series of practices which means that African identity cannot be named or subsumed under one category. It is of importance to note that Africa is not a country, though African

She becomes the angel when she stays true to herself; a kind, loving and compassionate person. She becomes the rock when she strays away from who she really is and takes on her father’s identity. This is when Hagar doesn’t show any emotion and becomes rigid and hard. Hagar looks at John as the son who she relates with the most, but in actuality he is the complete opposite of her.

Evaluating the role of ethnic identity in explaining the occurrence of contemporary civil conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa.
High hopes for many newly independent states of Africa became diminished as the 1990s saw over a quarter of the continent's states facing armed insurgencies within their borders (Young, 2002: 534). Commentators often point to pathological, deep-seated hatreds in an African tribal mosaic as the bases of such conflict. The fact is, however, that the continent is awash with political grudges, ethnically-framed and otherwise, but civil wars rarely break out. Thus this essay seeks to take a more nuanced approach to understand the analytical challenge posed by such

Feminism is a women's rights movement that focuses on political, social, and economic equality to men. Over the course of history, many great feminist philosophers have created theories of why women’s rights are as important to those of men. One particular feminist, Nancy Chodorow and her book The Reproduction of Mothering: Psychoanalysis and the Sociology of Gender have brought the attention of gender identity roles of a man and a woman in the family and how they can be corrected.

preserve their identity, culture, traditions and customs. But also has adopted a number of laws to prevent all forms of discrimination based on ethnic or racial grounds. A potential consequence of multiculturalism in Britain is that communities originating from other countries can become isolated from the supposedly indigenous population, leading to a lack of identity with the UK.
One should, nevertheless, consider the problem from another angle. A great number of immigrants who create multicultural society help British economy to flourish. All these people come to the UK to study and work. Most of them then stay in the country and take up low-paid jobs; they are an inexhaustible source of cheap labor.
To draw the conclusion, one can say that multiculturalism as an existing fact in modern Britain causes more problems than benefits. And the British government should carefully lead a policy of cultural leveling and social cohesion.

religious proselytism. While Europeans in many cases learned the local vernacular language, such as Arabic in the case of Middle East countries, Americans used only English (216). This is reflected in the case of Turkey as well, since many of the English-only schools established during the late 19th century were founded by American missionaries (Reagan and Schreffler 117-118). This case can be analyzed as a case of conception of identity via language, in a country with a history of pre-modern national churches. According to MyHill, there has been a conflict between pre-modern national

Mentally tormented by loss or confusion of personal identity, female teenagers strongly desire the feeling of belonging to a certain group of friends.

Women’s roles are constantly changing. In early America, society believed that women were wives to their husbands and mothers to their children. They were there to serve the men in their lives. Young girls were required to obey the commands of their fathers, and women were to fulfill the wishes of their husbands. The men believed that this was their right. They believed that women’s job was to bolster the men’s self-esteem and to ensure that men were forever kings of their own domains. However, this belief changed drastically in the mid-nineteenth century, and by early twentieth century, women began to make statements of their own. They wanted women’s rights in

As a secular humanist, the origin of life is nothing spectacular. Human life is a product of thousands of years of evolution. Man evolved from matter that simply was; there is no god who created life, it just is.
The Question of Identity-
A secular humanist identifies equally with all life, “Mankind is simply a more sophisticated animal” (Weider & Gutierrez, 2013). Because man has evolved from animals, we are not above them and should treat all life with the same respect.
