when we did not have the course work and debate to prepare, there wasn’t much else to do. Although I found Tyrconnell to be the least enjoyable part of the program, I am glad I got to experience the outback and observe the different lifestyle of those who live there.

The AUIP Australia program was definitely a life changing experience for me. I more or less signed up for the program blindly without knowing much about the itinerary or course information, yet it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I felt that the program provided good accommodation

Australia is often described as being unique. Discuss three aspects that make it unique.
Australia is one of kind. It is only country in the world that is continent as well as a country. It also has a lot of other characteristics that make it unique. Some aspects that contribute to uniqueness are landform region, climate region and the wildlife of Australia.
Firstly, the contrasting landform region makes Australia special. Australia can be divided into four major landform divisions which are coastal plains, eastern highlands, central lowlands and western plateau. Coastal plains are known as flat areas that are found along the eastern edge of Australia’s coastline. The places which are

Australia is a society where people of all backgrounds are embraced, and the nation would not be able to function without the participation of unique individuals. We are a country that promotes multiculturalism and cultural diversity, and people are free to express their distinct beliefs and values. In many cases, people are honored for being extraordinary- in sport, talented players are nationally recognized and have prizes and medals bestowed upon them. The nation also holds festivals in recognition and celebration of a broad spectrum of backgrounds, such as Mardi gras, Chinese New Year, and St Patrick's Day etc. Unique social groups such as truckies, politicians, and rugby players pride

In this day and age, migration is increasingly prevalent in our society and it has transformed immigrants` lives. But in the meantime, many problems have arisen. In this essay, I will analyse some possible causes of this phenomenon and then propose some solutions.
It is obvious that the difficulties of living in Australia are diverse. The first is culture shock, which comes from suddenly being placed in a strange foreign environment and it is the root cause of the difficulty. It takes a while to be used to, so they should give themselves enough time, but not infinite. An illustration of the point would be that there is a big different between the eastern and western culture. People living

Social capital is the political, economic and social benefits derived from relationships, norms and co-operation between individuals and groups. This shapes the quality of social cohesion that is crucial for economic and social development (Woodhouse, 2006). The interaction between people of different social network increases community productivity by reducing the cost of carrying out business through co-operation between different groups. Australia rural and urban societies have experienced different impacts from social capital (Woodhouse, 2006).
In Australia, social capital is key factor for rural development. For example social interaction between the government, communities and

Uranium, as a most significant material in producing nuclear power, has becoming a world renowned energy resource. An article from Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (2006) points out that, Australia is one of the largest uranium distribution countries in this world and is also one of the countries that can exploit the uranium. So the uranium mining has made a huge influence for Australian and its people. Some people argument that uranium mining can bring enormous economic resources for Australia, for that reason, the government should encourage the exploitation of uranium. However, I firmly believe that the limitations on mining of uranium are very essential. Firstly, uranium mining would

Good morning teacher and class, today I will be talking to you about social injustice in Australia and how it is being treated by the government and the Catholic Church. In particular racism in Australia. We define social justice as the distribution of advantages within a society. Generally justice means the right thing. In social justice it just means socially everything is right and with no disadvantages. But today I'm talking about social injustice, so that is generally the wrong things that are happening in Australia.The people affected by racial acts are deeply hurt by the words or actions put up to them, and most of the time they are scarred for life.The injustice that has occurred in

RESEARCH PROJECT – INEQUALITY (INCOME)
Income inequality is a measurement of the distribution of income that highlights the differences between individuals or households making most of the income in a given area and those making very little. I chose to research this area of inequality as it seems to lead to various other inequalities and therefore has a significant impact upon the people of Australia.
There are many factors in society that can lead to income inequality:
Rapid Population Growth – this causes inner city and outer suburban sprawl. Low income earners are forced out to the suburbs to find affordable housing. This in turn leads to more disadvantage as jobs are scarcer in

A major change that has occurred in the Western family is an increased incidence in divorce. Whereas in the past, divorce was a relatively rare occurrence, in recent times it has become quite commonplace. This change is borne out clearly in census figures. For example thirty years ago in Australia, only one marriage in ten ended in divorce; nowadays the figure is more than one in three (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 1996: p.45). A consequence of this change has been a substantial increase in the number of single parent families and the attendant problems that this brings (Kilmartin, 1997).
An important issue for sociologists, and indeed for all of society, is why these changes in

The parole system in Australia is one that has adopted many differing opinions. The idea of parole has been debated over and over for many years. This paper aims to convey the positives and negatives of parole and in turn determine whether parole is under utilized or over utilized in Australia, or whether we have struck the right balance.
Parole is defined as the "supervised conditional release of a prisoner before the expiration of his or her sentence." (Legal Terms Website, 2004). Parole is seen as a back end model of community corrections and is usually approved to a prisoner after they have completed the minimum, required time in prison set by a judge. However parole is only

Obesity is chronic condition where there is an abnormal accumulation of fat causing excess body weight which in turn is detrimental causing health issues and ultimately a lower life expectancy.
The prevalence of obesity in Australia is 20.5%: 19.1% for males and 21.8% for females. The prevalence of being overweight but not obese was 39.1%: 48.2% for males and 30.2% for females. The number of overweight and obese adults increased from 4.6 million in 1989–90 to 5.4 million in 1995, 6.6 million in 2001 and 7.4 million in 2004–05. Approximately 25% of children are overweight or obese, up from an estimated 5% in the 1960s. (ABS, 2007) (Allman, AI. 2008)

Australia struggles to bring equality to its indigenous population
This article starts by showing us some graphs that represent four different pledges of the “Closing the Gap” commitments made in 2008. The first graph shows the pledge of closing the life-expectancy gap within a generation by 2031. In this graph the blue dots represent the non-indigenous population and the red dots represent the indigenous population. We can see that this target is not on track because, even though the red lines are increasing in a very little measure, it is not enough to close the gap between the indigenous and the non-indigenous, whose life expectancy rate is around 11 points higher. The second graph

With a rapidly growing economy and the multitude of organisations that exist in Australia, there is a great need for consistency and regulation when it comes to accounting. The AASB (Australian Accounting Standards Board), has set out such guidelines known as “accounting standards” which govern how businesses should be recording their financial reports. These range from the recording of share-based payments to agriculture of the business.
There are three main benefits of a business following the standards set out by the AASB.

Obesity In Australia Obese means very fat or highly overweight. You may say that it is the highest degree used for very fat people. If there is nothing good about it, why are people disregarding the importance of health and becoming obese? There are several factors that are contributing to this. For example diet. Despite the widespread availability of nutritional information in schools, clinics and even product packaging, it is evident that overeating is still a substantial problem. However, according to statistics, most of the extra calories came from an increase in carbohydrate consumption rather than fat consumption. The primary sources of these extra carbohydrates are sweetened

Many people believe that Australia is a racist country, but when asked to explain what racism is, they struggle. So, what is racism? I have looked at various resources including dictionaries and websites and have found that the most common, most agreed upon definition of ‘racism’ is the prejudice or discrimination directed against someone of a different race based on such a belief. Racism to the vast majority is a touchy subject and even though Australia as a whole has elements of racism, I believe that an entire country shouldn’t be labelled or categorised as ‘racist’ just because there is a minority of its citizens who are. I will be exploring some aspects on how Australia isn’t racist

South Australia's original diversity in religious beliefs was the key factor to South Australia's Label 'Paradise of Dissent'. When South Australia was first settled in the 1830's, one of the largest factors that attracted immigrants was the absence of a State Church. Immigrants could migrate to South Australia, without having a particular religious body to influence government and their own daily lives.The Church had been a huge factor in England, and other major nations around the globe for past centuries. The state church would receive funding from taxes, and had influence in politics and general happenings in the country. People were restricted from education if they were of a different

Compare and contrast the major impacts of the gold rushes on Australian and New Zealand society and environment
Both the gold rushes in Australia and New Zealand in the 1850-60s resulted in the dramatic change in society and the environment of both countries. There are many comparisons between the impacts on Australian and New Zealand society and environment. However, there are a few contrasting factors, which largely contribute to the formation of both Australian, and New Zealand’s society and environment.

This was both a social and political change that shaped the very foundations of our modern society.

Today, however, it is planted all along the south coast of Australia, in Victoria, New South Wales, and the southern most parts of Western Australia and Queensland.
The origins of wheat in Australia date back to 1789, with the arrival of the First Fleet from England. It was planted by James Ruse, a convict who upon arrival to Australia applied to Governor Arthur Phillip for land, and was granted an allotment at Parramatta. He

What is alienation?
When Karl Marx published “The Economic and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844,” he set out to outline the process by which the capitalist mode of production exploits workers. He called this phenomenon alienation, meaning that working people put everything into their jobs but get little in return. Marx explained that, under capitalism, workers are alienated in the following three ways: within the production process itself; from the objects produced by their labor; and from nature and the rest of humanity.
Alienation from the production process
For most of the working class, labor is nothing more than a means for physical survival. The labor process—working a job—is not

THE ROLE THAT AUSTRALIA HAS PLAYED IN INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS IN THE POST-WAR PERIOD
Australia began to become more conscious of its role as a global citizen after the end of World War II. This is when Australia began to gain a sense of independence. It began to realise its isolation from Britain and the United States. Australia began to play a role in international affairs. Australia did this by being one of the founding members for the UN (United Nations) and by becoming part of regional agreements such as the Columbo Plan, APEC, ANZUS, and SEATO.

Comparison and contrast between Australia and Lebanon in terms of social environment
Countries around the world are characterised by their own cultures. According to social anthropology, culture is determined by a range of learned human behaviour patterns, i.e. language, religion, music, art and social habits (custom and traditions). Accordingly, there are many differences between one and another culture, and the degree of difference is highly dependent on the geographical location of the countries, so that adjacent countries often display many more similarities than differences. In the case of two the distant countries like Australia and Lebanon, their differences and similarities
