The purpose of this article was to identify the socioeconomic levels within the study group at UAN in Luanda, Angola. Within the socioeconomic levels, the researchers determined the occurrence of adjustable cardiovascular risks and the relationships among the different social levels. The study was done at the University of Agostinho Neto with 615 public sector workers, ages ranging from 20 to 71 years old. The timeline for the study was done from February 2009 to December 2010.

I believe that the type of audience in which the research was conducted is for the general population. Since the study group had a diverse number of socioeconomic levels ranging from lower to upper class and equal amount of men to women, the study is for differentiating what risk factors are more present in different levels. This study helps further knowledge of women’s health and cardiovascular disease because it demonstrates how the disease affects the lower class more since they are less educated and not aware of the effects of the disease. Unique elements about this research were the fact that this was the first study to be done in Angola and the population below poverty in Angola is 33.6%. I think the research itself had very strong data but since it was only done within the grounds of employees at UAN then there cou...

- Popular culture is part of children’s everyday life experiences, embedded in film and news media, cartoons and television programs, in comics, music and advertising (Seiter, 1999; March, 2000 as cited in Ashton, 2005). Yet recognition of popular culture as a valid literacy medium within early childhood contexts continues to be problematic (Ashton, 2005; Shegar & Weninger, 2010; Arthur, 2001). The development of literacy learning begins well before children start school as they engage in literate practices in their homes and communities, allowing them to engage in meaning-making (Arthur, 2001; Ashton, 2005)....
