1.      Arts Figures Fear For the Endowment after Frohnmayer:

Artists, arts administrators and Government cultural officials were dividedin their reactions to President Bush’s dismissal of John E. Frohnmayer, chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. But they were united in one thought: that the endowment is once again in serious jeopardy. Over the weekend there was intense speculation about how President Bush might seek to restore a more moderate, if not vigorously conservative, tone to the agency.

For Immigrants, English Helps Them Feel at Home

By SARA RIMER
Published: November 28, 1991

The subject was Thanksgiving. In the classroom in Brooklyn where they are learning English together, the 21 students from Guinea, Haiti, Czechoslovakia, the Dominican Republic and 10 other countries were groping for its meaning. They got the part about eating a lot (their multi-ethnic feast started at 10:30 yesterday morning). But they were bewildered by a holiday that celebrates Pilgrims, turkey, pumpkin pie, football and Macy’s all in one day.

Sociology: Essay

 

Sociology, the scientific study of human social behavior. As the study of humans in their collective aspect, sociology is concerned with all group activities: economic, social, political, and religious. Sociologists study such areas as bureaucracy, community, deviant behavior, family, public opinion, social change, social mobility, social stratification, and such specific problems as crime, divorce, child abuse, and substance addiction. Sociology tries to determine the laws governing human behavior in social contexts.

Sociology is a social science which examines human relationships and focus on social world. Sociology vary as of the rest of the social sciences because it call attention on social classes and evaluates education based topics such as delinquency.Sociologist creates background that influence people lives. They are concerned with what happens to the goods and services of a society, but they also focus on the social consequences of inequality.  

The difference between sociology and other social sciences is that sociology is the study of human society and social interaction as a whole. It takes the broad approach to helping us understand the different societies in which we live. Other social sciences dig deeper into specific areas of our social surroundings. Sociology is also divided into two different sciences, Natural Science and Social Science. Natural science is the focus on explaining and understanding what’s happening in our natural environment. Natural science also study (Biology which is base on botany and zoology also geology which is base on mineralogy and geomorphology), (#1). Social science is the science that examines the relationship between human. It‘s basically the human life and how we all related to each other. Social science also studies something different like (Anthropology which is focus on cultural and physical, and also economies which is focus on macro and micro) (#1). Natural science also study things like zebra, lion (zoology), and rocks, mountains (geology), (# 2). In the other hand social science also study religion, ancestors (cultural) and iphone, economy systems (economies), (#2). Natural science is really different from the social science and the different between them is that the natural science explains and understands our natural environment while the social science examines our relationship.

Sociology different from other social science like History, political science, psychology anthropology etc… Sociology focus on society or social groups(what happen to goods and services, belief system etc..),( # 3) while each one of the social sciences study different things like for example, history focus on past events( they attempt to establish the important people idea, social institution), ( #3). Political science which is kind of similar to socialogy, focus on politics or government (the way people govern them selves), (#3). Anthropology which is focusing on understanding culture, a people way of life (culture including, a group’s artifacts, tools, and weapons). All of these other social sciences help us understand what sociology is and the different between them (other social sciences) and sociology, but as an overall we can say these social sciences are all parts of sociology.

Sociology is a very precise and exact social science that varies from the others because it focuses on social relations. It includes the evaluation of social classes and of the system that people in a society tag along. If there was no sociology in the would people would not understand each other and there would not be any relationships between each other.
