In what ways are househusbands outsiders or insiders?

Househusbands can be both outsiders or insiders. Whether they are outsiders or insiders are based on the attitudes received from the government and social sectors. Househusbands do not have garner support from the society as traditionally, men are meant to be the one working to support the family. However, with men switching roles with women whereas the women become the pillar of support for the family it is gradually becoming acknowledged by the society as there is now more and more numbers of successful househusbands.

Househusbands are outsiders due to the law and the traditional thinking of the government and the problem of finance. According to Pereira, 2005. The only obstacle between the father staying at home and taking care of the child is their financial situation. The financial woes are their greatest source of concern rather than them being tied down to the responsibilities of a child. However, there is now a 33% of men willing to work part-time and take care of their children. The weekend Australia (2013: 13-14) reported that there is a slow rise in the number of single fatherhood however many fathers are not willing by the lack of support and being regarded as a disgrace for men to be in this kind of positions. This is caused by the traditional thinking that men are the main family breadwinners whereas the women are the caretakers of the children. Influenced by such thinking, the government only has laws placed in favour of the women and does not support men being the caretaker of the child. According to the weekend Australia (2013: 13-14), in 2006, the Howard government changed the law for the single parents allowing both parents to take care of the child and making sure the child knew both his father and mother. This new law actually made a difference in the amount of fathers taking care of…...

...in Massachusetts with store locations and distribution centers throughout the country. We currently do not have an Employee Assistance Program. Our CEO realizes that many competin Employee Assistance Programs are benefit programs, designed to help employees face personal problems that might negatively impact their work performance, health, or overall well-being. The personal issues for which Employee Assistance Programs provide support vary, but can include, alcoholism, substance abuse, emotional distress, major life events such as births, accidents, and death, health complications, family and relationship dynamics, and work environment concerns. A 2008 study from the Families and Work Institute found that 65% of employers provided EAPs in 2008, an increase from 56% in 1998 (Dargan, 2010). Employee Assistance Programs generally include a variety of services such as situation assessment, short-term psychological counseling and referral services to specialists if needed. Employers choose to provide this benefit to their employees for many different reasons, ranging from the desire to support their employees and their family members, accepting the evidence that healthy employees make for a more productive workplace, and protecting themselves from liability and legal issues (Jacobson, 2010). An Employee Assistance Program's basic services are usually funded by the employer so that associates and their families can utilize them free of charge. Most offer employees......

Outsider - Othello

...How is the concept of the outsider represented in Othello? An outsider is someone that is not fully accepted by society. They tend to be shunned and excluded, deemed different and a threat. Outsiders don’t conform to society’s values and beliefs and the concept of this is represented in Shakespeare’s ‘Othello’. In this tragedy, the Outsider alienates themselves by going against sixteenth century attitudes about sex, gender, and race. Shakespeare comments on how a society excludes and mistreats someone different from the paradigm that defines the Venetian society. The tragic figure, Desdemona, is an example of this concept and her actions, and the actions of people around her ultimately doom her. Desdemona is portrayed as a beautiful, young, Venetian woman. She is first set as an outsider when she chooses to marry an old, black man, Othello over young, wealthy, white Venetians. Interracial marriage was highly uncommon and looked down upon. This is clearly shown when Iago makes racial comments about Othello, “Even now, now, very now an old black ram is tupping your white ewe”. Iago’s use of black and white imagery degrades Othello and gives the impression that he has defiled the pure ‘white ewe’, Desdemona. Iago clearly doesn’t approve and sees the union of black and white as a bestial one. Shakespeare uses repetition (now, now, very now) to emphasise the particular idea that what is happening is shocking. Shakespeare is deliberately startling and troubling the audience,......

The Concept of Outsiders

...Discuss this attitude in relation to your understanding of the concept of outsiders. “He was different and us kids don’t like anything different” is a view that suggests difference is unfavorable and disliked. Difference is perceived as unfavorable because it is misunderstood and kids don’t think for themselves. This attitude has implications that create insiders and outsiders and inadvertently justifies bullying. It does not recognize that difference is misunderstood, and rather suggests that it is wrong altogether. This ignorant and unsophisticated attitude is exemplified in Archie Waller’s story Herbie, about a young indigenous school boy who is rejected by his community because he is black. His understanding and connection of the land is misunderstood, as well as his culture and identity. Herbie’s character and mistreatment is revealed through a powerful selection of language features employed to convey the racism explicitly. The attitude “He was different and us kids don’t like anything different” creates an insider/outsider relationship. The relationship consists of the outsiders who are different and therefore vulnerable, and the insiders who use this to gain power. Exemplified in Herbie, an particular insider describes Herbie by stating “[Herbie would] flit around the shadows like a crow, he was as black as one too”. This clearly demonstrates Herbie as an outsider to the central group (the insiders), and the term ‘flit’ suggests the actions of a bird - never......

Insider

...Insider Trader In the United States and Germany, for mandatory reporting purposes, corporate insiders are defined as a company's officers, directors and any beneficial owners of more than 10% of a class of the company's equity securities. Trades made by these types of insiders in the company's own stock, based on material non-public information, are considered to be fraudulent since the insiders are violating the fiduciary duty that they owe to the shareholders. The corporate insider, simply by accepting employment, has undertaken a legal obligation to the shareholders to put the shareholders' interests before their own, in matters related to the corporation. When the insider buys or sells based upon company owned information, he is violating his obligation to the shareholders. For example, illegal insider trading would occur if the chief executive officer of Company A learned (prior to a public announcement) that Company A will be taken over and then bought shares in Company A while knowing that the share price would likely rise. In the United States and many other jurisdictions, however, "insiders" are not just limited to corporate officials and major shareholders where illegal insider trading is concerned but can include any individual who trades shares based on material non-public information in violation of some duty of trust. This duty may be imputed; for example, in many jurisdictions, in cases of where a corporate insider "tips" a friend about non-public......

Insider Trading

...Insider trading is experiencing major cases, which include Marvericks’ Owner trials with the Securities and Exchange Commission, criminal trial of Expert Network James Fleishman and the trial of a former Goldman director. Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s board and other boards controlling the companies affiliated to Insider Trading have failed to control business issues in the companies. In some cases, the boards have interfered with the functioning of the Insider Trading through the manner in which they make decisions. Boards have been involved in making decisions and approving some deals in the company, which resulted into the cases. A good example is the Goldman case where the board approved the deal at a time of financial crisis. Some directors helped each other in acquiring deals within a few minutes which led to illegal business deals. Different nations have enacted laws concerning insider trading in control of the roles played by boards of directors. In Canada and USA, there have been considerable changes in the laws concerning securities in the business (Foster, 1996). The federal legislation regulates the securities trading and contribution of boards and CEOs in different sections. The subsequent judicial decisions introduced in the business outline the main roles of the insider trading regulations. In the regulations, boards monitor operations in the business, as well as operations of CEOs. The Securities Exchange Act enacted in 1934 regulates secondary trading and......

...just went to all classroom at the time I was supposed to be there, I had to walk into every single instructor and ask them how do I crash. For two whole weeks, from Monday to Friday I had to go back to crash in every possible class. Those two weeks were a torture to me, waking up 7am every morning , finish my day at 6 or 7 pm. I was able to enroll for 18 units with a very horrible schedule, but what could I say? I just felt sad because it is really hard to interact or blend into a country I am not familiar with. It took me months, that I finally met new friends , learnt how to communicate better , improved my poor English. I sometimes feel confused about the decision of coming to the states. Did I choose the correct path? Totally an outsider of this entire environment. But I believe after all of this, I would become a very tough and success person in the society....

O anúncio de uma fusão ou aquisição é um momento oportuno para essa prática, visto que quase sempre causa impactos significativos nas expectativas dos agentes do mercado e nos preços dos títulos. Este artigo analisou se essa prática esteve presente em processos de fusões e aquisições recentes, realizados por grandes empresas brasileiras, utilizando-se de um estudo de evento para o qual, além da análise do retorno acionário anormal, fez-se a comparação de médias de variáveis sinalizadoras do comportamento dos títulos no mercado (liquidez).

Insiders/Outsiders

...Insiders/Outsiders The religions of division; some see those who belong to a specific religion as having somewhat of an us versus them mentality thus creating an insiders and outsiders situation as the byproduct of such an atmosphere; this is often the result of any community of people who chose to categorize the population into those who belong to the group from those who don’t. In every religion, that has a law attached to it, there are certain rules and regulations you are expected to follow if you are to fit in. Most religions are more strict then others, the word religion comes from the Latin word, “religare”, which means ‘to bind tightly’, so religion could most definitely defined as something that either can bind tightly around you or you can bind tightly around it. Do they control their religion or does their religion control them. There is an element of separatism that is present in religions. In the religion of Judaism, the Pharisees were known as “the separated ones”, to be separated from the rest of the world, considered special. In the Christian religion, the character of Jesus took issue with these separated ones, who claimed to be speakers on behalf of God, he took issue with them because of their holier then though attitudes. We divide ourselves into groups as soon as we slap labels on each other, I am this and you are that. Although there are always acceptations to the rule, I believe for an organized religion to function, servants are needed to serve......

The Outsider

...The Outsider – Albert Camus Albert Camus presents ideas of identity and the human condition in his classic novel The Outsider, through his exploration of gender and cultural representations as well as an insight into absurdum and existentialism. These concepts of identity and the human condition reflect on the society in which the novella has been set, demonstrating how women, those of other cultures and those who are considered to be different are represented. The novella tells a recollection of events of a young man named Meursault, emotionally detached from a society where he refuses to conform to society’s conventions and in turn a refusal to ‘play the game’. The novella begins with the death of Meursault’s mother and ends with his own, his execution for the guiltless murder of an Arab man. Meursault’s refusal to play the game and willingness to live by his own set of rules is what has him condemned in the end. In the patriarchal society known to the characters of The Outsider by Albert Camus, gender ideologies are explored. In the novella, men are represented as the dominant, powerful gender while women are represented as weak and undermined. It is through the character of Meursault’s girlfriend Marie, that the idea of gender identity is revealed. When Meursault is arrested for the murder of the Arab man, Marie is called to court as a witness to the crime, as well as been questioned for her own character. At the court case, instead of Marie being asked for her......

The Concept of the Outsider in Literature

...The Concept of the Outsider Literature often persecutes the most vulnerable, a person who lacks support and therefore power within society. Described by Terry Eagleton for The Guardian as the “literary mainstream”; these characters are often referred to as the Outsider due to their exclusion from the community in which the text is set. The characters who are referred to as Outsiders can be portrayed in different ways; their initial exclusion from society can ultimately lead to a narrative of their acquisition of power throughout the text but similarly, can portray a story of their maintenance of the minimal power they have over the course of the text’s plot. However, this is not to argue that some Outsiders presented within literature do not have power over the course of the development of the text so, as a consequence, remain excluded from the society. In this case, the text would then be considered an exposition of the character’s experience from their position in society rather than the author’s attempt of trying to integrate their character into society through their work. Furthermore, the author themselves may be considered an Outsider through their own status in society; they command their readers to be Outsiders themselves within the novel. As well as to read and observe the narrative in order to emulate the same feeling within themselves, within the reader or to have a specific impact on the issues surrounding humanity at the time. The contrast in the ways in which...

Insider Trade

...What can we learn from insider trade? Evidence from Thailand Nareemet Kittikhuntanasan Student ID: 5882942826 Project Advisor Kanis Saengchote, Ph.D. Committee Tanakorn Likitapiwat, Ph.D. Special Project Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of The Requirements for The Degree of Master Of Science in Finance Faculty of Commerce and Accountancy Chulalongkorn University Academic Year 2015 1. Introduction In general, the insiders are classified as the persons who have more information than the other investors and make an abnormal profit from this unpublished information. Under the Securities and Exchange Act B.E. 2535 of Thailand defines the insiders as directors, executives, auditors, their spouse and minor child, and the owner of more than 10% of stocks. Since they have valuable information than the outsiders, they might use this knowledge for their wealth. Hence, the other investors might use the insider trading data as a signal infers future view of the firms and adjust their portfolios and strategies to make some profits. Even though, there are many evidences supporting that insider trading is informative such as Aboody and Lev (2000) suggest that insiders make profit from their ability to acknowledge changed plan in the researcher and development budgets. Likewise, the paper from Jaffe (1974), Finnerty (1976) and Seyhun, (1986) support that insiders can make profit from their trading. However, many early literatures argue that there are market movement......

The Outsiders

...The Outsiders. This poem has two meanings, the first about good things never last forever and the second about youth and innocence. Robert Frost’s poem relates to the novel, the Outsiders in many ways.  The first meaning is that good things do not last. That life may seem perfect when everything is going right, but this will not stay forever. Everything living is beautiful and every beautiful thing will eventually die. Robert Frost is saying good things will never stay forever. Many times in a person’s life there will unhappiness and sorrow, the good times will end. Even though the great times come to an end, they will be followed by more and more great times. It is just like life. Life begins through beautiful babies, but sadly, in many years the baby will die. But, since good times will come again, a new beautiful baby will be born. It also means that all things are going to change eventually, like people, seasons and nature.  Gold in the poem represents youth. Line one, “Natures first green is gold,” indicates nature’s first green is youth because every living thing begins with youth. Line two, “Her hardest hue to hold,” represents that youth is very hard to keep because they get older in age. In line three, the poem says, “Her early leafs a flower”, which defines youth as innocent, and beautiful like a flower. Line four, “But only so an hour” means that the young child will grow older and no longer be innocent for it will mature and begin to do wrong things. In line...
