There are many assumptions about homeless people. Perhaps the most common is that all of them are too lazy to work. Having been there myself and having worked with many others in the same situation, I have to say that for the vast majority of homeless people, the assumption that they are lazy is dead wrong. In economically depressed areas in an economically recessed economy and hiring preferences (thus discrimination for the unprefered) homelessness is an outcome of unemployment, not the cause. They don’t pay 5 to 10 cents a can for recycling, or that might help. 2 cents isn’t enough. Some people want you to work for free…not food, not shelter, not trade…but as a slave. Weird world. The solution is equity in hiring.
While she had friends who were doctors, lawyers, and other professionals, he had friends who were janitors, construction workers, and laborers. Want more sociocultural and educational shocks? As a highly educated and professional woman, she was interested in the theatre, opera, and other intellectual pursuits. He? His ideal of relaxation was going to the corner bar with his buddies, watching boxing, and drinking himself into total drunken oblivion.
A. Kudos to you for your research. I am all for accessibility too. I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience with Dr. Lane. Unfortunately, there are a lot of bad feelings out there and strong prejudices. I quoted his book because it is highly regarded in deaf academic circles and is recommended reading in some sign language education programs. By the way, I don’t quote Dr. Ling because his work has been discounted by leading researchers. I once attended a lecture years ago that countered and tore apart a lot of his research.
I am looking for sample research paper abstracts that a 4th grader would understand. Something guide to better demonstrate what an abstract is. The guide on this site narrates as you touch the explained body part and the accompanying text matches the narration. A brief quiz at the end has a question corresponding to each explained body system.
Idk how it is in other states but here in Texas we have many things available to help the homeless. San Antonio built a huge homeless shelter that was designed to help feed, clothe, medicine if any kind, shelter, and get jobs for the homeless and was located right next to where most of the cities homeless congregate. The building sat almost empty for so long that city passed a law that the churches and others, even normal citizens, would get fined if caught giving money or food to the homeless or beggars in an attempt to get them to use the services provided for them. Like I said, here in Texas we do have many things available for those who need care but unfortunately, like San Antonio’s helper showed was that most of their homeless didn’t want to work to get better. People like y’all who were homeless and truly trying to get better are a rarity.
