What is the act that allows police to arrest political protesters?
Wow. How little people know about their own government.
H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007:
Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act Raises Fears of New Government Crackdown on Dissent
Barely any media coverage of this at all. In this bill: “Homegrown terrorism” is vaguely defined as "the planned use, threatened use, of force or violence by a group to intimidate or coerce the government of the United States."
So some worry that a simple act of civil disobedience, such as blocking the door of a recruitment center in protest, could be considered terrorism.
Around a boyfriend your not supposed to act. Your supposed to be yourself, the point of having a boyfriend being different than a guy-friend is that you are comfortable around him.
You talk about anything and everything that comes to your mind. I don't mean to sound very not helpful, but we can't tell you how to act. Around someone as important as a boyfriend, you just talk about anything that comes to mind. What do you talk with with your friends? Inside jokes, gossip, movies, who got with who, etc...
I act who I really am: around friends I am loud, I can't whisper for my life, and experienced (guy-wise). Around my boyfriend I am shy, I always whisper, and I am clumsy and have no idea what I'm doing. I take risks and try new things. This is why I am experienced when I'm around my friends, but around my boyfriend I'm just as innocent and unknowing as anyone else. I still get really nervous when I know my boyfriend is going to kiss me -- I don't want to mess up! Around friends it's like "been there, done that" and I'm not afraid to talk about kissing guys.
It'll come naturally =] If there's an awkward silence say "so..." awkwardly then crack up and voila, you guys have an inside joke and a new thing to talk about. I'm not you, therefore I can not tell you what to do, but just relax.
How to get the confidence to act in front of others well?
With everything there is a start. Usually when you start off, you start off small. Come up with a script. Possibly write your own. You will build confidence from discovering you can write. Then, try talking in front of a pet. Whether they pay attention or not it helps. I did talk to my dog once, (on advice from a friend) and even though it was weird it did work. After the pet, move up to family. Try a sibling. Sometimes parents might not be brutally honest. A sibling usually will unless they don't mind if you look like an @$$. After family try a friend, then try aa classmate or a speach class/public speaking assignments. Pick something at school where you can thrust yourself in the public eye. Maybe run for a school office. (Class President) You will definitely have to speak to classmates. At that point you should be ready to try acting in other venues.
What differentiates the act of simply grouping people from the act of stereotyping? How can stereotyping?
Grouping implies more of an objective reason for assembling people together. You might place people in a group according to age or race. Those are easily discernable characteristics that can be used to draw group lines. Stereotyping usually involves placing people in a group according to characteristics that they might not possess. More often, stereotyping assigns characteristics to groups according to common assumptions about the groups such as black people like watermelon and fried chicken or Mexicans are sneaky and lazy. Stereotyping can have a great impact on group relations if people judge those in other groups based on stereotypes instead of basing their judgements on the reality they experience with a particular person. For example, let's say that I'm a white kid who likes to play baseball but I don't want to play with my neighbor who also likes to play baseball because he is black and I've heard that black kids don't like white kids and they are all in gangs and kill people. Let's say the black kid next door doesn't want to be my friend because he has heard that all white kids don't like black kids and they burn crosses and hang the black kids if they can catch them. That's stereotyping. Grouping and stereotyping can both be legitimate in some instances. Stereotyping more often is not accurate.
What act of civil disobedience could I write a paper about participating in?
The healthcare bill is a popular topic, You can say how you would not let the government force you to buy something you dont wanna buy and how if you dont you have to pay up to a 25,000 dollar fine and/or go to jail.
It matter which college you go to. Some schools will take your highest scores from each section, and use those for a "super score". You still have to send them all your scores, so they see them, but they only consider the highest ones. That's not all colleges though, some just look at your highest composite score. You could probably find out whether or not the colleges you want to go to do that by looking at their websites, but if you can't find anything, I would just send all your scores and hope they do.
