This ritual is practice by some African, Middle Eastern and Asian communities (BBC New Africa, 2013).

Actually in Greece, it is said that seven young people entering on the job market out of ten will be unemployed. At the moment, it represents the highest unemployment level in Europe with a percentage of 62.4% of young adults between the age of 16 and 25. This period of unemployment is caused by the financial crisis that, as we know, affected Greece gravely since around 2010. As the author said, it is now doubly stressful to finish school by seeing what awaits them on the job market when they need to work and study hard for their final exams.

          I am an 18-year old female citizen of the United States of America. In the eyes of the law I am an adult who, with the right to vote, now legally has a say in what goes on within our country. There are a lot of issues in our country that my vote and my voice can influence, but the one nearest and dearest to my heart is the debate concerning reproductive rights and the revoking of Roe v. Wade. There are a lot of labels that our society associates with the reproductive rights debate, pro-life, pro-choice, abortion, reproductive rights, right and wrong.

Director of the movie "The Heat" comes out with his opinion on how his movie will do in theaters. Although Feig is an accomplished director, having already put out “Bridesmaids” which earned millions in theatres, he admitted to being nervous for his new movie to appear in theatres. The author of this article believed Feig had a right to be nervous too. With big blockbusters such as “World War Z”, “Iron Man 3”, and “White House Down”, where male actors dominate the screen, a “chick flick” is not something that can even compete. In Hollywood, it has become to accustomed for movies to be male dominated. Fieg has made it his goal to make the female movie industry rise in power, and take away the mind-set that currently revolves around them.
