Emotive language has been used to shock the audience, an example of this in the text is ‘exposes’ and ‘animal abuse.Text 1 uses black font on a white background, this portrays a formal appearance to the audience and shows the seriousness of the animal welfare issue.‘ Animal abuse carries negative connotations thus making the audience feel the sympathy for the animals.Within the past few months, I have been exploring a range of texts centralising around the theme of animal welfare.The purpose of this text is to persuade people to become vegetarian; this is shown as many persuasive techniques such as imperatives have been used.

In deciding on an optimal policy, defined as one that maximises social welfare, costs become very important and must be weighed against the expected benefits.The net increase in welfare under the legalise-and-tax approach is assured because the tax, in effect, internalises the negative externality associated with drug consumption.Clearly, therefore, if both supply-side and demand-side initiatives are costless, well conceived demand reduction efforts (i.e., schemes to prevent drug abuse by the young through prevention, education, rehabilitation of existing drug users) promise an unambiguously positive outcome relative to effective supply restrictions where there may be an offsetting expenditure effect arising out of the price increase (i....

The complexities of parental contact from the perpetrator of abuse might expose the children to witnessing more abuse.The concept of best interest and the welfare of the child set out in s.1(3) and A8 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) is also embodied in decision-making (Butler and Hickman, 2011).The Every Child Matters (DfES, 2003) led to the enactment of the CA (2004): it requires LAs under s.11(4) to “have regards of statutory guidance” to cooperate and make arrangements to “safeguard and promote the welfare of children”.This posed a dilemma between the welfare of the child and Ann’s right to confidentiality.Section 17(1) of the CA (1989), places a ‘general duty’ on Local Authorities (LA) to “safeguard...

Because the nature of Under the Rainbow is predominately a charity, they realise some of the clients who ask for welfare assistance will not want to be involved in any further actions for changing their situation and staff may only be required to ‘advocate’ once.They are also aware that learning to be persuasive and using resources available to them will increase their level of competence and better assure a positive outcome for both themselves and their clients.The goal for each volunteer who manages cases for Under the Rainbow is to promote fair, equal, and humane treatment through fundraising, charity provision (food and clothing), welfare work and social action against injustice for the disadvantaged.Skills of Helping Individuals, Fa...

Over time welfare has continued to help people and families in need, but it has also been abused by the wrong kind of people.This option would not only help the abuse of welfare, but would also help decrease unemployment rates.To decrease the misuse of welfare all the government really has to do is drug test or open up more job opportunities.The idea of welfare started during the great depression, then Franklin D. Roosevelt passed the social security act, which established a number of programs designed to provide aid to various segments of the population (“Welfare Information”).Instead of spending so much money on welfare systems, the federal government should focus on creating more job options for the unemployed.

With a better welfare system, the amount of people needing financial support has the potential to decrease and the amount of independent people working toward their true potential will increase greatly.This could actually give proof that the welfare system has been used for good, in a time of need, during the last recession of 2007-2009(Murray).The amount of people on welfare increases dramatically every year.In conclusion, welfare is not a completely terrible thing and with some major changes to the system it could become something that positively changes the United States.As of 2009, the amount of people on welfare had increased by 27% in Oregon, 23% in South Carolina, and 10% in California than in the previous year (Murray) .

Child welfare professionals acknowledge that some fathers are committed to their children, many others are not.In her study “Child Welfare Professional’s Experiences in Engaging Fathers in Services”, Professor Mahasin F. Saleh found that sixty percent of substances abusing men associated in social services cases lack paternal responsibility (126).Although, fathers exist in the lives of women and children involved with child welfare authorities, they are rarely seen by the child welfare professionals themselves.In failing to work with fathers, child welfare ignores potential risks and assets for both mothers and children.In the article “Manufacturing Ghost Fathers: the Paradox of Father Presence and Absence in Child Welfare”, Leslie Brown...

Supporters argue that the government should drug test welfare recipients because they believe that “taxes paid by Americans should not go to people who use drugs or have substance abuse problems.” These people also believe that drug testing will provide an initiative for welfare recipients to seek treatment and become productive in society (Welfare Drug Testing, 2013).“Welfare Programs Should Include Mandatory Drug Testing.” Welfare.Ranee, a writer and contributor to Helium, is a supporter for mandatory drug testing welfare recipients, as she demonstrates when asked “should drug tests be required of Welfare Recipients?She wrote “I’m not downing the welfare system; I just believe that it should be reserved for emergency situations, like p...
