Computers VS Teachers

Writing IIID 2016
Is it possible that computers replace teachers? There is a huge discussion on this question. There are many researchers or enthusiasts who claim that computer-based learning will replace teachers. There are also people who disagree with computers replacing teachers. Both sides have clear opinions and it is not so easy for us to help students choose the way of studying. Meanwhile, many schools or cram schools introduce computers in classes recently. Which is more effective for students to be taught by computers or teachers?

Smoking in public places

Writing IIID 2016
Smoking has been one of the big social problems. It is said smoking is bad for the health because it causes some diseases. According to WHO, over 1.1 billion people in the world smoked tobaccos in 2015, and smoking in public places is regulated recent year. In my opinion, regulation of smoking in public places is a desirable idea because I think that smoking makes many people unpleasant. So, I will tell you why smoking in public places is not good.

Black company

Writing IIID 2016
Have you ever heard of the word “Black Company”? The origin of this word is Japanese and it refers to a company which doesn’t follow the Labor Standards Law. According to Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the number of workers suffered from Black companies in 2012 was 1,067,210. Some of them got diseases, some mental problems or others lost their lives, so I think that we must do something against them as soon as possible. In this essay, I will explain the reasons why the problems that they have today and the measures against them.

Old people should return their driver’s license?

Writing IIID 2016
In Japan, the Japanese government recommends and promotes old people who are over 65 years old to return their driver’s license to prevent and decrease traffic accidents, I think that the recommendation is an effective action. Recently, some Japanese old people had traffic accidents, because of their poor driving ability. They have lost their physical ability. Such as decreased vision, impaired hearing, and slowed motor reflexes. So today, I will introduce a demerit and merits of returning old people’s driver’s license.

Culture, Poverty, and debt

Dr. Kaldor's Intro to Soc
This article is very interesting. Since I was born, I have never heard of force marriage but in this article. This article shows the beliefs and culture of people from Congo which it might be relevant to a lot of people especially people from Asia. This article mentions how a lot of girls in Congo committees force marriage because they lost their verity. Parents and communities believes that a girl should stay virgin until they get married and when they have sex before then, they get kicked out of the house and in the community as well.
