The term “crossing borders” can mean many things: from literal border-crossing such as immigration and migration, to cross-cultural communication and the difficulties it can cause. Emad Burnat’s Five Broken Cameras is a perfect example of that latter of these. In particular, it illustrates the conflict that arose between the small Palestinian village of Bil’in and Israelis whose settlements encroached on their land in an attempt to force the locals out of their village.

Antonia Biggs & colleagues (2013) constructed and analyzed the results of a study determining reasons why women have abortions. During this study they interviewed  954 women from all over the United States. These women were placed in an exam room for 40 minutes and asked one question, for what reason did they decide to have an abortion? Many women found it hard to identify one solid reason for making the choice that they did. They often provided multiple reasons. When analyzing the data gathered they found there was a wide range of answers given.

Many people have heard of autism, but how many know what exactly it is? In recent years, there has been a growing amount of evidence to show that autism can accurately be diagnosed in children before the age of three. But how is this done? Who is making the diagnosis? With the number of diagnoses and thus treatment programs for autism increasing every year, these are important questions to be asking. Questions that apparently don’t have as cut-and-dry answers as you may think.

Over half of all marriages end before their time in divorce. And while this fact is no secret to most people, it is still a difficult subject as it can have many negative effects on a family. There has been much research conducted about the affect of parental divorce on the development of young children, but what happens as that child begins to enter adulthood? How do the implications of their parents’ divorce continue to shape their life as they begin to have relationships of their own? Or, how different are the effects of parental divorce when the children are already entering adulthood?

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.

The article “Sino-English Culture Difference and Teaching in Foreign Language Education” discusses the struggles foreign language instructors face in teaching the accompanying culture of the language they are teaching. These educators have long since ascertained the importance of teaching culture to their students, but the problem remains for how to go about doing this in a way that maximizes comprehension. The solution, this article asserts, lies in the mastery of a skill called ‘cultural creativity’. In order to better illustrate these points, the author uses the specific example of teaching English as a foreign language in China.
