Disagreement

The question of disagreement between parents and their children coming from the problem of the mindset.The different ways of thinking, notions, and ideologies adding insult to injury. There are two options in this relation: The first option is neglecting the problem before that snow avalanche would become huge collide and destroy the connection. The second option is regular hassles and unrespect behavior towards each other. Of course, not every family with this problem are behaving like this, but everyone had felt the various level of this obstacle.
Now let’s explore the question more thoroughly. First of all, the generation of people born in the late 1990s and early 2000s is called “Generation Z” and our parents belong to “Generation X”.The visible differences are the innovations, “Gen Z” are born in a century of high-tech: computers, laptops, smartphones everything circulates around AI and cryptocurrency, people adapt to new technologies almost every day, and on the other side of the coin our parents who were born in the USSR and had gone through many barriers which have resulted because of the USSR collapse, the earthquake in Gyumri, war on Artsakh are just two examples out of many others. The Mindset is another significant difference between our generation, in the same way, people’s mentality based on the social standards at the current moment, and as people always detest adapting to something new, there is some difficulty in adjusting to distinct ethos.
In conclusion, I want to say that the dissimilarities never have to stop from learning something new, even if the way is harsh, even through misunderstanding and mistakes I believe that the harmony between the generations will be achieved.

What are the characteristics of a good leader?

The leader is the main role in social structures, anywhere people will find themselves in circumstances to pick a character with a certain part in actions. According to this, there are people who contain features of a good head, that will take everything under control.

A positive attitude is the most significant characteristic that defines leadership. It gives the essential vitality that a leader must have, it doesn’t mean that the head will turn a blind eye to all problems, but the opportunity to support the team in a most problematic moment, because leaders are people who understand that they are leading a team encompassing humans, not robots. Have you seen a person who was a ruler of a big project and was scared to take responsibility? Individual who can manage a lot on their plate will not only show their mates their matureness but also will inspire others to take responsibility for their share of actions. Also, the characteristic that every leader must have is being focused, It is true that the more a leader is focused, the better the outcome of his engagement with the team will be. It is impossible to not head the problems as a leader of a group, therefore a person has to be able to challenge a failure and bring innovations to the workpiece.

In conclusion, I want to say that every successful country, company, sports club, or division had a person with the mindset that brought his teammates to the winning way and I am sure that he had those qualities. 

What are better outdoor or indoor activities?

People must spend their day with activities to keep themselves healthy and entertained. Without activities, people won’t be able to improve their minds and bodies. Activities have changed and keep changing as the years pass since people always try to find new ways of entertainment. Individuals try to find balance between outside actions and comfortable entertainment at home. One might prefer one over the other because of their own interests and the benefits of that particular activity. 

 For instance, any sport, especially one that demands team cooperation, gives experience for awareness of people’s actions and improves your body conditions. On the other hand, video games have become a very big part of modern society, as we all know, it’s fun to play and talk with your friends likewise reading books and watching TV with your relatives. But both types of activities have advantages and disadvantages. Outdoor activities can cause physical injuries that can have serious consequences to your health. However indoor activities have much more disadvantages. Few months ago the WHO officially recognized «gaming disorder» as a mental health disorder, also the way many people sit in front of their displays and the lack of physical movement can lead to chronic diseases. Another major disadvantage is the harm to vision, as if you spend most of your time in front of a screen or in a small/closed place in general your vision will worsen. 

In conclusion, I want to say that people have to monitor the balance between indoor and outdoor activities, to avoid harmful impacts.

There is too much violence in movies

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Give specific reasons and examples to support your notion.

 The film industry has grown, so with the time that passed, the technology allows directors to make their ideas feasible, and violence is an instrument to push the audience for the emotion. The diversity of method to shot the movie, permit directors make a picture with their specific vision. In my opinion, any type of violence should be allowed. Freedom in the art sphere is the only rule for creators and the audience has permission to criticize it.

Nowadays cruelty in cinema adapting to genres, comedy, and horror certainly have different styles, so violence is a technique to emphasize the feeling inside a character or obstacles that a persona has to overcome. As an instance in comedy, violence is just a strategy to create a comic situation. Even so, it is impossible to turn a blind eye to a problem between parents and filmmakers. First, the position of parents: as they call it “cinematographic violence» considering as harmful to the children’s psychology and their perception of the world around. Second, the position of filmmakers: that still problem is more about restricting your child surrounding the information cycle because the responsibility of your child is not on the director’s neck.

In conclusion, I want to say that the violence in the movie is not bad if it makes sense in a certain film, with a certain plot and characters, also the problem with the parents, concerning taking responsibility for their children, instead of complaining film directors.

 How the food has changed over the time 

Food is a fundamental need for people and it has always been in the history of human beings, the process of eating is one of the basic requirements of survival for humans. In the past, people were killing animals and using new technology to prepare food for themselves. Now we have uncountable types of food sources: Agriculture, animal farms, food which is created in laboratories.

Let’s take a look at how food has adjusted to nowadays and the differences between our food system. Firstly the process of cooking. The innovation in the technology sphere gave a solid boost for the bakery, for instance, the way of cooking bread in former times, the dough was mixed only by hands and the operation had been taking too long, so the amount of bread and time was excessively long, at the moment the big corporations use the blending machine for dough. Also, the new way of growing plants are really interesting, the scientist making attempts to rearrange seasonally foods, and now people can eat orange during the summer or broccoli during the winter, how is it possible? Easily, greenhouse and the new sorts of plants, that specialists were developing for decades.So In conclusion, I want to say that we see how food has evolved from centuries, and we do not really know where the future is going to lead us to, but one thing we are acknowledged of is that the best food this all time was always cooked by our mothers.

The Accidental tourist (Book review)

I adored this book! The way he was written, the themes in it and character development. I liked how Anne Tyler writes people personalities ,that you can recognize. They are middle class people who live their lives as best as they can. You can almost sense that she spends her time studying and processing people to get to their inner selves. Here is a small preview of that book:

Macon Leary is a travel writer who hates both travel and anything out of the ordinary. He is grounded by loneliness and an unwillingness to compromise his creature comforts when he meets Muriel, a deliciously peculiar dog-obedience trainer who up-ends Macon’s insular world and thrusts him headlong into a remarkable engagement with life.

Even in my age, though this book I can see persons who get bogged down and try to do with their private problems by abusing their relationships and neglecting their difference,by preferring just not to do anything
