He also pointed out that the relationship between income inequality and the presence of health and social problems. For instance, using a graph in his presentation, Wilkinson (2011: 3:31) argued the fact that the higher the income inequality means the higher the health problems such as lower life expectancy and so forth. In another graph, Wilkinson (2011: 4:10) argued that the index of health and social problems does not necessarily correspond to the gross national income (PPP $) in each country. Lastly, Wilkinson (2011: 5:01) mentioned that the UNICEF’s index on child’s well-being has no direct relationship with the gross national income (PPP $) in each country.

Though the history of counseling services is as varied and rich as the techniques, terms, and skills offered throughout the profession today, it was not until the 1960s that some counselors started to realize that a one set of skills fits all approach was not appropriate.
Interestingly, both authors also state that the public do not want to believe that the crime rates are steadily going down. The article provides a significant revelation on how the public views crime and what role the media plays in this standpoint. Had the media been doing their part and providing the public with “reliable information about crime” (Warr, 2000, p.483) instead of “eagerly meeting a consumer demand for gore and tragedy” (Keohane, 2009), then perhaps the public will not continue to be victims of the fear of crime that some people utilize to “entertain, titillate, or sell” (Warr, 2000, p.483).
The presenter did not give much detail about the Western learning style, limiting it to only three extremely broad bullet points each on the background and perspectives of the learning style. The choice of perspective was not limited any further beyond “Western”, even
The heading on the introductory slide, for instance, reads somewhat awkwardly: “Being prepared for a power outage what does that mean” – this was missing some punctuation (for instance, perhaps it should read “Being
