Women’s Interests: Stephen Lang (Narrator), HarperAudio (Publisher)

by Muhammad Shoaib

Women’s Interests When it comes to being attractive to the opposite sex, which hobbies will help you stand out from the crowd? eHarmony UK investigates
Women want a well-travelled fitness fanatic who loves the theatre while men desire a cosmopolitan photographer with a passion for exercise, according to our brand new research study.
We’ve analysed millions of â??communications'[1] between our eHarmony.co.uk members and found that men who list travelling, exercise, theatre, dancing and cooking receive the most interactions from women online. Outdoor interests, politics, pets, photography and watching sport make up the remainder of the top ten most attractive interests.
For women, exercise is the most desirable pastime, followed by photography, travel, art and dance. Politics ranked at number six, followed by outdoors interests at seven, cooking at eight and learning and music at numbers nine and ten respectively.
THE TEN MOST ATTRACTIVE HOBBIES AND INTERESTS FOR MEN AND WOMEN
Exercise scores in the top two most attractive interests for both sexes – with men finding women with a love of football the most appealing. This is followed by swimming and sweating it out at â??military style’ boot camps. When thinking about men, women deemed rugby the most attractive workout, followed by tennis and football.
Travel also places highly across the board. Living (10 per cent) and working (11 per cent) abroad were both shown to boost levels of attractiveness and one in five Brits agree that the ability to speak another language adds allure.
As well as the most attractive interests, the research reveals the pastimes deemed less desirable. Though women like men who like the theatre, it doesn’t hold the same appeal for the opposite sex, who place this pastime among the bottom rated interests. Women who list â??making a difference’ were also shown to receive 15 per cent less communications from men online.
From a female perspective, men who describe going out with friends as a favourite way to spend their free time receive a 14 per cent decrease in communications from women. Interestingly, the same rule doesn’t apply for women – with social activity appearing as the seventh most attractive interest in the eyes of men.

Die Veränderung der sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Parameter in Paraguay nach der �ra Stroessner (German Edition)

by Marc Gugelmann

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Politik – Internationale Politik – Region: Mittel- und Südamerika, Note: 1.5, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich, 28 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Paraguay kämpft seit 1989 an allen Fronten gegen wirtschaftliche Rezession, Geldentwertung, Schattenwirtschaft und Korruption, mit der daraus resultierenden sozialen Ungleichheit und Armut. Vielen Paraguayanern geht es seit der Einführung von demokratischen Strukturen schlechter denn je und nicht wenige rufen lautstark nach einem starken Mann für das Land, der es wieder auf einen strammen Kurs bringen soll. Durch den Sturz der Diktatur wurde Paraguay nicht nur in der politischen Entwicklung auf dem Weg zu einem demokratischen Staatswesen erschüttert, sondern es veränderten sich auch viele Vorzeichen im sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Bereich. Dass der Systemwechsel von oben herab stattgefunden hatte und das Volk mehr oder weniger davon überrascht wurde, trägt massgeblich zum heutigen Agieren von Staat, Polizei, Verwaltung und weiteren nationalen Akteuren bei.

by Kathie Njaine

Originalmente organizado para dar suporte a um curso a distância, o livro extrapola seus objetivos iniciais e compartilha com estudantes, profissionais e gestores de saúde ideias e reflexões para reconhecer e enfrentar a violência como grave problema de saúde pública. A obra contextualiza a violência na realidade brasileira, aborda a história da incorporação do tema na agenda do setor saúde e discute a importância de uma política para a área. Destaca como a família, a escola, a comunidade e a mídia podem e devem ser alvos de medidas de prevenção à violência. De modo didático, descreve cenas e casos de violência que chegam aos serviços de saúde e, em seguida, oferece textos para reflexão e outras sugestões de leitura, de modo que os profissionais possam se preparar para lidar com situações semelhantes. Dessa forma, são estudados e discutidos temas como crianças e adolescentes em situações de violência; formas de institucionalização tradicionalmente reconhecidas pelas relações de violência; violência no trabalho; e violência contra pessoas portadoras de deficiência, mulheres e idosos. Completam a obra um passo a passo para um diagnóstico situacional da violência; uma proposta para a elaboração de um plano local de promoção, prevenção e atenção às situações de violências e acidentes; e exemplos de avaliação de programas e ações nesse campo.
