Of the 100,000 gun related deaths, which included homicides and suicides, states with more restrictions tend to have less deaths in their states (Kessler). States such as Hawaii had a low amount of deaths by firearms because they had stricter gun laws. Whereas, states such as West Virginia had more deaths by firearms due to lack of strict gun laws. With this being said, stricter gun laws throughout America is not a bad idea. We would see a relatively low amount of deaths by firearms if we do so.
Men are more likely to lose their jobs than women in current financial crisis. This recession hit heavily upon men-dominated industries, such as construction, finance and manufacturing. However, sectors have held up relatively well in education, health care and service, which will create more jobs for women (Peck: 14). However, the chart 3 in the following page demonstrates that females are more likely to receive EI benefits than males. The logistic regression shows the group of female is 2.067 times the odds change as compared to the odds in the comparison group of male, which can be seen the blue bar of female is 2.067 times higher than the bar of male.
Nationally, murder rates are significantly lower in states that don’t use the death penalty than in those with a death penalty law. “Critics also point out that the United States has a higher murder rate than most western European nations that do not practice capital punishment, and that death sentences are racially discriminatory” (Mooney, Knox, & Schacht, 2015,

However, it was found that men have higher rate on completed suicide than women while women have greater rate on suicide attempts than men (WHO, 2013). The gender behavior will determines the suicidal behavior.
Males are just more effective in their methods. White Americans have a higher rate of suicide than any other ethnic group. It is believed that homosexuals have a much greater rate than heterosexuals, but this is difficult to research because many homosexuals hide their sexual orientation from fear of persecution. The terminally ill are most closely associated with the doctor-assisted suicide issue. Many in this group argue that once all medical care has failed, then one has the right to hasten death to avoid pain and suffering.
The Death Penalty The death penalty is not always the best way to handle things when it comes to the justice system. Recent studies have shown that blacks are quicker to receive the death penalty than whites. For example; Jurors in Washington state are three times more likely to recommend a death sentence for a black defendant than for a white defendant in a case. This is not right and that shows that the justice system may or may not be very judgmental, but It all depends on what state your in. Recent studies from another observation show that In Louisiana, the odds of a death sentence were 97% higher for those whose victim was white than for those whose victim was black.
Consequently, women who choose to divide their time between work and their family life will undoubtedly earn less. In fact, women ages 27-33 who have no children actually earn 98 percent of men’s wages according to the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth. 1 As these examples suggest, discriminatory pay practices persist, leading to lower wages for women, even when they perform the same job as men. 2 It is difficult to decide what can be done to close the wage gap between men and women. However, several steps have been taken to ensure equal opportunities for both sexes.
Everyone will always have their own opinion, but over two-thirds of the countries have abolished the death penalty. More than half of the United States public now prefers alternatives over the death penalty as the best punishment. It is not a deterrent; in 2008, 14 states had lower homicide rates at or below national rates without capital punishment. One of the arguments is money, but did you know it is cheaper to keep them alive than it is to kill them. The death penalty would still be more expensive than other alternative sentences, even if appeals were abolished.
Because of the conflicting moral views and the opposing evidences, it is not hard to understand why the death penalty is a very difficult issue to resolve. Public opinion polls suggest that certain national demographics show different attitudes towards use of the death penalty. According to the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics in 2002, 61% of those who make $75,000.00 and over believe in the death penalty, while 67% of those who make less than $15,000.00 believe in the death penalty (143). This means that people with a higher income show less support for the death penalty than people who make less money. According to political party, 58% of Republicans believe in the death penalty, while 54% of Democrats believe in the death penalty, thus show... ... middle of paper ...
(1996) that 26% women left management positions whereas only 14% of men did the same. He also proved that the reason of that is not, as commonly believed, the fact that women have more family commitments, but the sub-optimal career opportunities that were encountered by females. Lyness and Thompson (1997) found that men job satisfaction was considerably higher than women.
