Noise Pollution

Normally when we leave our homes we found a number of sounds in the environment, some can be very uncomfortable and others that does not affect us much. In cities is where more noise is, and as we move away from the city, the sound decreases. Sometimes these sounds may become uncomfortable and potentially affect the auditory system, but not only that, but the noise can bring other consequences to our body. For example: can affect sleep when we are dealing with noise pollution. Pregnant women can also suffer alterations in fetal development. The constant noise can also cause negative effects on children.

Noise pollution affects us when to sleep, after spend a day surrounded by noise, at bedtime, can affect us because it will be more difficult to sleep. And not only affects us that way, but these sudden noises can awaken people who are sleeping and short sleep time. This may cause the person to unveil, losing sleep and affecting daily activities.

Noise also can have negative effects on fetuses. During development, they are able to perceive and respond to sounds, especially if they are very loud sounds. If the noise is constant in the first weeks of pregnancy may affect their development. If noise occurs after 5 months of pregnancy, children might become intolerant to noise and will mourn on hearing loud noises.

The constant noise affects learning and health of children, when children are educated in noisy environments, they lose their ability to respond to acoustic signals, suffer disruptions in their ability to listen as well as a delay in learning to read and verbal communication. All these factors mean that the child is isolated, making it very sociable.

It is important that everyone know about the effects of noise on the human body, there are many consequences that can bring with it living or spend much time in a place with lots of noise pollution. The noise can be very annoying, and not only that, but harmful to our bodies and health. So it is important that we take preventive measures, such as eliminating sources of noise, or have control of these sources of noise. It is very important to look after our health.

Finding a Niche

The situation that involves the process of immigration has always been a controversial and difficult part of human society. The mixture of political and cultural differences between countries has never provided an easy establishment in a new social environment. It is always a slow and tedious process, in which people sacrifice a lot from themselves in order to ensure a better and stronger future, especially for their families. In a general manner, societies must be more tolerant and open to this people, because it is not easy to leave the place in which one was born, and especially when discrimination and inequality is suffered.

Eassy # 5

As time goes by, we have gradually lost the habit of sitting with family members to eat. People have adapted different customs that have been changing this practice of having sit-down meals. There are several factors influencing this change. People now consume fast food due tolack of time; Family members have different shedules of activitird and meals; they prefer other activities instead of family meals.

Today we live a very fast life, mainly because of studies and work. This means that when you get home no one wants to prepare food. and it is easier to eat out, call the express service or buy food somewhere else to take it home, instead of cooking at home. When this happens, the family members prefer to go to any part of the house where they feel comfortable, like having dinner in bed, in the living room or in different parts of the house.

Currentlythe members of the family have different activities; parents work and children go to school. So nobody is home . Then, at night when everyone is tired, they prefer to eat food that is quick to prepare, and some eat befor the others, and that is how we have been losing the custome of family dinner.

Arriving home tired is common after a busy day at work, school or college. And it is easier to eat some type of fast food. Sometimes when you get to the house there are other activities or duties to preform, and therefore eating at the computer is very common, and not only that, but some people prefer to eat whiles watching television, which has become a custom followed by all family members.

These are the most common problems that are experienced with changing habits, thanks to technology, stress, lack of time. We have lost the habit of sitting with family member to eat, and this somehow affecrs the realtionshi within the family and feed in habits related to fast foods, which damage the body and bring with them a large number of diseases that can be lethal.

What is the use of Homework?

 The main purpose of homework is to practice more what you see in class and reinforce knowledge. To investigate whether we know about a subject or not, it also help us to review and study the subject so we don’t forget it. When doing a math exercise and we don’t understand something like how to solve it, or if we realize that we need to review something else, so then we can ask the teacher for a more detailed explanation, and to clear our doubts.

Homework helps us to be more responsible with our jobs, and go slowly forming us. It needs to be yourself who should take the initiative to start doing homework in a timely manner, and be clear that it is a responsibility to yourself and not anyone else.

Doing homework helps us achieve a common management time, so plan how long we can last doing a task. Take it as a responsibility; it does not matter if you have to stop doing other activities to make homework as it should be. Is better to be responsible to take some time to devote to homework, and not have limited time for other activities.

Homework is important because many times when they are in groups of peers, you learn to relate to people who think differently to us, to respect the decisions and concerns of others. Namely managing the relationship with others when our points of views are different, this will help us shape little by little.
Personally, I think homework is very important in our education and I completely agree with it, since it works as a reinforcement of what we study in class. Homework helps us not just to learn but to become better professionals.

To achieve long-term survival, the only thing to do is follow a number of steps which should become healthy and living habits. In current youth culture meals are not healthy and people tend to live shorter lives and suffer from many diseases that lead to death. Therefore we recommend exercise, drink water, eat healthy and above all smile and be happy.
