(Cain.ulst.ac.uk, 2015). The location whichmost males come from was Belfast West that had 579.this is was 18% ofthe male population. Followed by Belfast North with 16%.The location with most females was Belfast North with 18%,followed by Belfast West with 13.7%.Cumulatively the location with most soldiers was Belfast Westwith 17.6% followed by Belfast North with 16%.(Cain.ulst.ac.uk, 2015). From thestatistics, I can settle that gender by organization research sinceit has the most number of percentages. It also has fewer probabilityspaces. The results can be used in research work to create andconfirm specifics. It can be applied to indorse the results of whathappened to the soldiers. The data can also be used to set policiessuch that the number of soldiers from a particular organizationshould not exceed a certain number

Question 2 My dominant view on this week’sreading is that in different cultures, genders roles are assigneddifferently and nature and culture have a great influence on it. Myreactions towards the scholar materials is there is some truth to thethesis, Gender is perceived differently among different cultures.Some learning take feminine to be less superior to the masculinegender. Basing my argument from the book, ‘Gender inCross-Cultural Perspective,’ the author first introduces on howgender, biology, and human evolution come to be. The authors thenbring about how the different views on sex difference began. Theyfurther on goes to show some of the early roles of women in theevolution of human. (Brettell &amp Sargent, 1997) This includedgathering and preparing food, caring and tending to children .Howconflict and violence among the Kung, which was a group of San peoplethat lived in the Kalahari Desert, is introduced.

Here both genders were equal as some women could choose to be huntersas their male counterparts. The case of how Baule women adoptchildren in Ivory Coast serves to show how women act as social agentsand control their destiny as well of others. (Brettell &amp Sargent,1997) This demonstrate that paternity is both natural and social. Thechapter concludes with an article the lifeboat ethics incidence wherefemininity is solidly proved. It shows how abject poverty andstarvation affects motherhood and infants. It portrays how cultureand lack of care from the government make the women abandon theirdying children.

Question 3 From the family outline page, I was able tofind the some of the cultural factors that influence family processesand structures may include age matters and gender matters. It alsoincluded the different coupling stages, parenting, and the relationcycle between wife and husband throughout the time. The segment thatabsorbed me the more was the parenting section. Here I was able tofind the different roles of the father, mother, and the son/daughterrole. Some of the father’s roles included spending time with hisfamily, providing basic needs to his family. The father in mostsocieties is termed as the head of the household. (Ojeda, 2003) Therole of the mother include providing necessities to her family,raising children and taking care of the house hold chores.

Both the mother and father handle giving mental and physical supportto their children. It’s also the role of daughter/son to obey theirparents. They are also responsible for helping out with the householdchores. (Ojeda, 2003) Some of the concepts that relate to thediscussion topic include the various parenting roles as I havediscussed above, how different cultural practices affect the familyprocesses and structures and the various stages of coupling. Underculture methods we find that different genders tend to be givendifferent roles i.e. some father and mother roles vary in differentcommunities .some other cultural factors include age and sexuality.The various stages of coupling show the steps that are to be followedbefore marriage. They involve courtship, cohabitation and thenfinally the marriage ritual.

Question 4 Loftus says that our recollections can liewhen persuaded in one course by individuals we trust for instancespecialists, relatives or even cops requesting that we recognize aperson from a progression of mug shots. (Abramsky, 2004) The articletries to prove that very regularly we can remember occasions that didnot happen and see individuals at the scene of a wrongdoing whichwere not there. While these false recollections can be about vergingon anything, in the recent decades they have had an effect on thecriminal-equity scene. Most remarkably, around the topic of recoveredrecollections of occurrences of sexual misuse affirmed to havehappened years or decades beforehand.

Without any physical confirmation, these cases pivot singularly onthe expression of the affirmed casualty, their legitimate suitabilitydependent totally on the readiness of prosecutors, judge and jury toacknowledge the claims at face esteem. (Abramsky, 2004) Yet, sodamaging are these memories ,these pictures of smashed and damagedchildhoods that swim up to the surface years after the fact,regularly while the victim is experiencing advising with anunlicensed specialist, that few are willing to test their legitimacy,and to further crush as of now urgently discouraged people and,accordingly, time and again men and ladies have been indictedexclusively on the premise of such memories or, if not arraigned,have had their notorieties and family connections destroyed.
